New Chief of Patrol?

Thursday was Jimmy Maurer's last day. Love him or hate him or be ambivalent about him, he was a character the likes of which we shall probably never see again, one of the last of the "old guard." So who's the replacement? We predicted Dan Dugan, Area 3 Chief. Others say Risley or Shields, but previous comments hint at A LOT of baggage for Shields. Don't know much about Risley, though we hear some good things. Skahill's name is also in the wind here, but we can't see the political powers that be having two women in charge of the two largest Bureaus of the department (we're not sexist, just an observation.) We'll stick with our Dugan prediction for now.

Does Dugan have a vacation home?

Yes, and we've bought the lots on both sides of his and directly across the street. We've also taken out options on properties up and down the block and will be auctioning them off as timeshares. Bidding begins now!

Shields has way to much baggage regarding domestics, we don't need another embarassment like a certain deputy chief gave us from area 3.

Sheilds went to high school in Washington DC with Jesse Jackson Jr. Some elite prep school.

I hope he is on the outs

Just what we need Jr. to be mayor and Shields to make Supt. That would be great then we can listen to them defend Meeks while drinking 4d's from a bag and smoking squares.

The embarassment came from Guerrero while he was chasing rubbertits around. What a fool.

Idea's for the fop:
(1) Court on your RDO is double time. (its bad enough we work 6 days and then have court on your day off when you want to spend it with your family)
(2) the city must take 20 percent from an promotional test before tossing the list. (they take 20% management why can't we make them take 20%)
(3) the city of Chicago must provide adequate free parking for po's at court house locations. (including Daley center)
(4) Special employment for districts (like normal special but you work in your district)

It all depends on how much Daley and his people get involved. If they tell the Sup. to pick a minority or female or let him have his own pick. They may back off with the Fed's all over the place and Mr. Shakman lurking about. But I doubt it.

I look for someone out of left field, Anne Egan, Frank Lamon or some other Hispanic or female.

Shields is incompetent. Meritorious Lt., and probably Sgt. Is has some relationship to Hillard like Godson of something which is how he went from Sgt. to Commander to Dep. Chief in about a year and a half. Besides connection to Jackson. Has beef on him for sexual harrassment, and oh yeah is friends with Flagg. Tina Skahill is smart, nice and was the police, but looks at everything like a laywer now, (Karen Rowan disease). Risley wants Organized Crime and is a good guy, dispite the obvious family ties and connections. Dugan would be a good choice so he probably won't get it.

I say look for someone out of left field.

Isn't Frankie Limon the one who ain't hispanic, he's old time Dago. His grandparents moved from Italy to Argentina, so he calls himself hispanic, but he doesn't speak a word of spanish.

Limon is also a merit Lt. who didnt write his own masters thesis and then tried to get the civilan he was F*****G fired after she did it for him. A grade A piece of S**T.

We'd be better off if they just went ahead and made patrolman exempts. Then you could get rid of clout promotions and let the worker bees have all the test spots. You don't think some Lt with 2 months of street time since they were a P.O. is qualified to be a boss, do you?

Shields seems like a good guy and has been easy to work for everytime I have delt with him, that being said its begining to look like he ruined some good coppers carrers by putting his buddy (flagg) on the A/2 gun team. these guys all got dumped back to there districts and are facing city and fed investigations

They got dumped after some one besides Flagg got caught. Two talked to the FBI and four refused. More to come, one is in protective custody, why did they get take home cars with gas at nearly three bucks a gallon.

They were not on call 24/7. If their dirty they belong in the pen,
dont blame Shields. What home invasions did he do?

You are wrong, someone on the gun teams is on call 24 hours a day. Not the whole team. Aparently, they were taking cars home without authorization.

Flagg is probably talking to the FEDS. Why would the FBI show up at the gun teams homes?

It took more than one to commit the home invasions and street stops..

Want to bet on some more indictments.

Most of these guys are white, it wont be all black p/os going down.

The FEDS love a mixture. FBI @ IAD are working this one together.

Cline should be hung for giving these fools take home cars.

Remember they had motor maintenance run the gas usage for every unmarked vehicle in the city. Any cars not gassed up in three weeks were taken from the units and given to Phils minions.

These mopes wernt promoted so they gave them a five thousand dollar raise with an unmarked police car and free gas and insurance.

Why should the special people in narcotics be given take home cars?

Political clout, no one gets into narcotics with out a phone call.

Why do those p/os assigned to the fugitive warrant section get cars.
Political clout, how does one get assigned to such a nice unit.

Why do the dicks in cold case get
take home cars. Political hacks of the Kline regime. How does one get assigned to this unit.

I hope Pam Zeckman exposes this corruption, CBS has asked for motor maintenance records.

The Brass will claim they are installing GPS in all the cars.

The dept. had everyone in cold case carrying nextels. Something happened and they decided to audit the bills. Now they pass on the "non-duty" minutes to the dicks. Some of those guys were gtting $200 bills at first. The city had been picking that up years. Take home cars, company phones, 2nd watch, mon-fri, all to clear cases with dead offenders. Gimme a break. My favorite my buddy told me 'we don't get overtime so we make it up in the duck'. Another unit where 20% of the people carry the load and everyone else is laughing at all of us. This job is nothin but a scam for anyone with clout.

On behalf of our membership, the Police Executive Pussy Hounds of America (PEP-HA), we are outraged by the narrow-mindedness of some of your anonymous posters. Double-blind clinical studies have clearly demonstrated that receiving oral sex from consenting subordinates actually enhances our administrative skills and overall performance as police executives. Our honorary members include former President Bill Clinton and the Reverend Jesse Jackson.

Those who oppose our state-of-the-art police management policies should be severely censured. They are a disgrace to our noble profession.

Hey fed up Sgt,as usual you don't know what you're talking about.You're right about one thing, and only one thing,Flagg didn't act alone, he was indicted w/5 or 6 others.You MORON!If you want to know the real story ask somenone from the A2 Gun Team and stop listening to the guy in the third shitter from the left.And while were asking why... Why do Sgt's get an extra half hour a day? I can't remember the last time I saw a Sgt stay that half hour. How much money could the city save? You have too much time on your hands. Quit worrying about everybody else and take care of the PO's that work for you.

Then I guess you wouldn't mind giving back the 1/2 hour you get at the end of your tour....... or are you the only patrolman that works till 30 min after the hour. I don't know about other Sgts., but I work late almost every day. Also, I frequently don't get a lunch. Don't begrudge us a benefit we obtained through our contract negotiation. If you are so concerned about saving the city's $, then I'm sure you support the voucher system instead of uniform checks. I don't know anyone who spends that much dough on their uniforms every year.

I know that you may not believe this but in some units, like SOS or Gangs you always have had to work an 8 Hr. plus shift. They check to see when you arrive and when you leave.

I don't know what "gang team" or SOS unit you worked for but as I remember gangs and SOS, most of the morning was spent driving a/c town to some remote spot (often not in the City) for breakfast or lunch and then a stop or two by some P.O's house to check on his wife, kids, girlfriend, etc., or to p/u his check from some off-duty gig. About hours 4 or 5 we'd hit some busy district, grab a quick pinch off the corner for dope, maybe a gun, or take over a job from some younger p.o., or dog who got a gun dumped in his lap and didn't want to handle it. About hours 6 or 7 it was time to held back to the unit for early checkoff. On Superbowl sunday or other special occasions, we always went to some P.O.'s house to watch the game and have a few (sodas, of course). Sgt.'s were rarely seen and Lt's never. . . It was truly the hardest job of my career, and I salute you for doing it now.

Hey Punk:

We know about the ones indicted but punk there are six more involved and it is also related to a number of robberies in the suburbs which they used police computers for gaining victim info..

They went thru two lockers at Area 1, and recovered proceeds from four pawn shops. I hope the g takes down every one of them screw turning the information over to the department. And I hear the gun sergeant is also a merit, so I hope he is guilty as sin, maybe he will be indicted and embarass his patronage friends. You are a patronage hack I wouldnt give the gun team the benefit of the doubt, I wouldnt even speak to those bastards who sell out the good honest guys on the department.

How did they get the gun unit, they didnt make the most arrests in the area. PATRONAGE KLINE HACKS

And you know what I work to 0030/0040 hours every night because of stupid shit heads like you, and your vagina partner.

My six year old has more common sense, your attitude is a disgrace and yet you dont understand why you
get brutality beefs.

When you learn to make a decision cry baby, be the police, no time on the job, you moron know it all.

I hate the city and the administration and the immature punks we hire.

Fed up Sgt,again as usual you don't know what your talking about.I would think that such a desrving person as yourself who made it the hard way to Sgt (so you say),would not assume any coppers are guilty of anything based strictly on rumor, which is all your getting. Sounds to me like you are no different than the media convicting coppers in the press.I feel for the PO'S that work on your watch. Oh by the way you are supposed to stay til 0100 to earn that extra half hour. Also I sense an anger problem with you, you should really talk to someone about that.

First of all, all of these rumors about A/2 Gun Team needs to stop. There were some isolated incidents involving a few officers. You don't know how Flagg got there and Shields is not to blame. Also, the sgts were on 24 hour call, not the po's. Don't talk about stuff you have no idea about. Go ask one of the guys still there what happened.There was a lot of good work done by some good policemen. It's a shame that their reuptations are being tarnished.
