Lt. List update

Someone asked about the list changing. We updated the original entry to reflect the change. Here it is:

Robert KONRATH is staying at Forensics - Unit 177
Thomas CZARNECKI will be taking his place - Unit 025

Someone call Czarnecki and let him know he has achieved internet immortality here on the blog. Congratulations!

About 15 years ago an officer from 007 was promoted to sergeant. While in sergeant school there was the Labor Day weekend. The day they came back were was a surprise pee test and this P/O peed hot. He was fired and they called someone to replace him.

Turned out it was the final class for that test. Today the replacement sergeant is a captain. Talk about good luck!

Actually, that was September 11, 1991 or thereabouts. The drug screen was no surprise, they had started doing them several classes before. Only time I know of that has happened. P.O. was a male black, they reached down 20-30 spots and picked a clout heavy white male, who then because a merit Lt., and now a Capt. Just goes to show that the Dept. doesn't always favor male blacks for merit promotions.

Its a shame that Konrath has turned down the promotion but forensics is his first love, and with 30 years on the job, who wants to go back to working midnights in a District, or even working in a District. Bob should have been an LT years ago.

Excuse the unrelated intrusion to this young thread- but Dear SCC & fellow media targets in blue- set your TiVo or VCR recording to the CBS 10 o'clock news tonight (fri 19 Aug)... here was Diann Burns "teaser" a few minutes ago...

"How a Chicago Poilce Officer turned traffic stops into sexual nightmares"... "...after the game"

Boy that sure spices up a pre-season football game- ouch! (Is this a new embarrassment- or that fairly recent one near A/3 with the stripes near the WGN parking lot w/ alleged polaroid pix... didn't he beat that rap?)

Would be sergeant was Tracy Simmons. Had about 14yrs on the job if recollection serves. Once was a great policeman, don't know what happened to him.

Another was Steve Pamon who was #3 on Lt. test in 1996 who was indicted for CSA or something like that and later fired. He could have been 1st Dep. by now.

Don't get it. . . .

The Sgt. by WGN was the son of a former big boss downtown. I know he was indicted but never heard the outcome.

Channel 2 just stated that the accused officer was from 017.

The "WGN sergeant" is innocent.

I don't remember for sure, but I think the sergeant (from last year's accusations) was the son of a female boss. Again, not sure, but Janet Pestka?

FWIW, she had an okay reputation as bosses go among the people I know.

Today's accusations are the second against someone from 017 this week. Its in the papers, so I guess it doesn't hurt to repeat that his last name begins with Allegretti. He was supposedly relieved of, e.g., his duty weapon, a few months ago and could see this coming. Two separate incidents and complainants.

Hope the latest ain't true.

I had a sex beef a few years back. I was EXONERATED. Why didn't you NAME me in your speculation? Why do some find it necessary to enter innocent officers' NAMES on this site?

It may be only a handful of us but some coppers are bigger gossips than old whores.

Oh I don't know. Were you indicted? Was your name in the media? See

Sorry pal, but people were confusing separate incidents (the sergeant and today's incident). In both cases I mentioned (the sergeant's son and the guy from 017), there were indictments and press coverage.

I can't help it if you ain't already famous.

Well, maybe the o-n-l-y saving grace in this latest media tempest-in-a-tube-top was that it was pushed lower in the broadcast by LIVE BREAKING NEWS of the PO-LEECE on the South Side at 70th & South Shore popping some caps inna' ass of an offender after he jumped from a suspicious speeding van and then turned toward them during a foot chase with not one but TWO pistols in his mutt paws... the punk was hit at least twice and taken to NW'ern Hospital for treatment... GREAT JOB!

Fair & Balanced- one to the good- one to the bad...

And this S. Side shooting incident may have just cut short Ms. Burns slamming of the 017 copper and his unique seat safety belt checks... (caring is sharing after all...)

Remember to "Buckle Up 17th District Ghetto Flowers- It's the Law!" (...slobber... wackada-wackada-wackada...)

Obviously, the Jimbo's thing is rediculus. typical knee jerk reaction to an isolated incident, but 009 has always wasted man power on BS, like guarding the mayors mom for all those years. And everyone wonders how the gang problem got sout of hand in 009. I remember back when they used to say, oh no there are no gangs in 009. Funeral details are getting out of hand. I have no problem having a car help out at a cops funeral, but we're going to every reverend's, community member, activist, etc. funeral now. Not to mention evry gang bangers wake.

Lot of people in Mt. greenwood had Sommerville signs up. Many were taken down in middle of night, by???? Also, Sommerville's sife is black. Sommervillle and his wife and family seem like good decent folks, but supporters of another candidate used the race card to convince a lot of people not to vote for Sommerville. What about Garfield Rigge who is the Alderperson up there? How does he or she keep getting elected? What have they done for the police and firemen and city workers in their ward? Waht about Madigan? He has never ever done a thing for the Police. Why does he keep getting elected? What about the North side? Murphy and Brookins both seem pretty cool and both oppose Daley. Brookins has already had some problems with Daley. We need more like these 2.

As I finish my 29th year, I am starting to get the feeling that the job isnt on the legit.

Anyone else feel that way?

They could make my blue shirted ass a Lieutenant and give me a different assignment every day and I'd be happy as a sissy in Boy's Town with a fist full or pardons.

To the new guys I wish you all the best of luck

Im retiring soon

You're right about Simmons he was a good copper. I worked a few times with him at Special in the projects. Don't know why he smoked that joint, he should'ha figured there'd be a test.

Actually it was cocaine and more than a whiff, burned out the bottom of the cup (if you know what I mean).

Well he could have lied and said his girlfriend put some "down there" and he had no idea. Like a big boss said before and got away with it.

As far as the 019 incident, it's still going to court. Ask anyone that worked midnights if they don't think that it really happened. You might be surprised.

This idiot from 017 got stripped in MAY and we just heard of it now? How did that happen?

My big question is what the hell happened with the Dick's test? I was in the top 600 last time and now I am waaaaaaaaaaaaay far down the list. (1900's) I think there was something funky with the scores. No one that you talk to thinks they were scored right. Do you think it's possible to get the Department to release the scoring criteria? I know for a fact that 4 years later I didn't forget anything that I knew before.
Jeez! What happened with the test?

Check out Saturday's Sun-Times. Cline is saying Meeks' story is closer to the truth and the bodyguards came 5 minutes after the stop. And then he says the investigation is still going on.

HOW THE HELL can he comment on an investigation that isn't completed? Any respect I had for the man is completly now gone!!!!

I did ask the guys on midnights in 019, and they all said no way, this guy rode on every call and was always out WORKING unlike some other bozos who hide in the hole all night long.

Simmons pissed hot on cocaine, not weed and it was the first day of sgt. school, he knew way in advance that he was gonna be made and still couldn't give up the nose candy. He is employed by the Chicago Public Schools now.

The second posting on this thread, someone is talking about a Capt who got meritoriously promoted through the ranks. I know who you are talking about, my next door neighbor, guy made to Lt by score, and Capt is now by resume, so there isn't a test for that. I've seen his result scores......he was the next candidate by score when that guy pissed hot.....(see 8:01 p.m.)

Sharky, are you saying Magliano was a legit promotion to Lt.? He was put in for merit for that spot by Cmdr Sullivan of Mass Transit on orders from above. He had soooo much medical time that Townsend actually delayed making Lt.'s to try to get him removed from the list. Magliano had to much 19th Ward juice and got made anyway.

Hey come on now. Mag's is one of the greatest officers, just listen to him say so. What else do you expect when someone is a precint captain?
