I am a Republican! Hear me Roar!

Whew. Quite a day of posting and typing. This will be our sixth post today and we've gotten 300+ visitors on the day! Hooray for us! We shall continue to cruise the board tonight, most likely poking holes in someone's arguments or supporting others. Again, thanks to all our visitors, readers and contributors for making this work so well. Keep spreading the word. We'd love to get 500 hits a day before the end of the year.

Great blog, so far! Hope it stays this way. Unfortunately, we cops usually ruin it for ourselves. The men and woman or the C.P.D. are by and large a great group of people, truely Chicago's finest. For this blog to reamin an open forum, it means anyone has to have access, even, dare I say that terrible word, civilians. We're being watched, or read as the case may be. That having been said, this can be a great tool for information sharing, venting, gossiping, etc. Let's use it in a positive way.

Thanks to the moderator.

P.S. I hope Mr. Shakman is reading, maybe he can findout what exactly the criteria is for meritorious promotions, becasue aside from higherups saying "make a phone call" or "who do you have pushing for you," no one has ever been able to tell me.

I cannot overemphasize the importance of ALL police officers to digest three landmark decisions of the U.S. Supreme Court concerning any possible retaliatory violation(s) of YOUR First Amendment rights by YOUR employer, the City of Chicago.

You need not go to a law library to study these cases. In each of the three following cases, I have CAPITALIZED one word.

Go to the GOOGLE search engine. Enter that one CAPITALIZED word (CONNICK, PICKERING or HEALTHY)plus the citation, enclosing it in quotation marks. Again, the three cases, citation in parentheses, are:

CONNICK v. Myers ("461 US 138")

PICKERING v. Board of Education ("391 US 563")

Mount HEALTHY City Board of Education v. Doyle ("429 US 274")

While competent legal counsel is mandatory, a brief understanding of these three cases will give you considerable insight into litigation in the event that the City of Chicago attempts to retaliate against YOU for exercising your freedom to speak out on "a matter of public concern".

A knowledgeable and litigious employee is the City of Chicago's worst nightmare!

Not ALL police officer in 016 are worthless. Not ALL of us have only worked here. Lots of us come from busy districts.

A follow-up to my previous comment (#4) to this thread. CONNICK, PICKERING and Mt. HEALTHY each involve an employee who was TERMINATED.

However, in Bart v. Telford, 677 F.2d 622, (7th Circuit)1982, even far less draconian retaliation by the City of Chicago warrants First Amendment protection. In the case of the CPD, DOCUMENT any precipitous declines in "performance ratings", disparate treatment, pretextual "discipline" including bogus C.R. Nos. and "summary punishment".

Again, remember that your lawsuit must be filed within TWO years of any act(s) of retaliation.

Research will demonstrate that many cases of retaliation could result in a "constructive discharge" in which the CPD makes the workplace so miserable that a reasonable person could become depressed and unable to work. His/her only rational recourse is to escape the relentless harassment by going on disability. Successful litigation could result in full reistatement, back pay and even a legal concept known as "front pay".

As time permits, I will attempt to respond to any of your questions concerning First Amendment retaliation by the City.

Finally, could the eloquent and anonymous 1:03 AM poster above clarify his reference to some "mutha"? To whom are you referring? Please elaborate when sober.

What has become of Garda and Sweetbabyray? If I offended them in previous posts by pointing the error of their arguments I meant no harm. Please refrain from anonymous postings and return with the likes of Sgt. Northern, BushBoy and SCC. we miss you!

Like I told the comrades at the last cell meeting.... I shall be there and endure the name-calling, back stabbing and the perils and pitfalls of a capitalist society to restore Mother Russia to its rightful position as the second world power. "We shall overcome"

Glad to see you missed me Lefty. I've been busy commenting on a different blogsite, The American Atheist, attempting to bring some lost souls back to the light. I have a feeling that you must be an atheist, since you have a deep desire to restore communism in Russia. And we all know that communist regimes do not believe in Yahweh. But there is still time to restore your faith and repent your sins so Yahweh can forgive you and welcome you into heaven.(Whenever that may be)

And by the way BushBoy, regarding your previous post, I'm on your side. Condi in 2008.
