The Pussification of the Department

Bad Language Warning - Don't read this kiddies.

OK boys and girls, time for a little ranting. What the fuck is happening to this Department? Yes, the days of handing out "candy," rubber hoses, telephone books and "electro-shock therapy" are gone, and the Department is better for it. But the pendulum seems to be swinging too far the other direction. No, we aren't talking about the first incident where the female PO is accused of/videotaped slapping a handcuffed 14 year old girl. You can throw the book at her. We'd say more, but we'd probably get ourselves in trouble.

We're talking about incident #2 where the PO asked (ASKED!!) the arrestee if he had anything on him that might cut the officer and the arrestee said "no" and then the copper got cut. The shithead got a well deserved rap for that one. We ask again - What the fuck is going on? That hype just committed an aggravated battery on the PO.


Will you ever see charges? No, because this Department and this City and this court system lack any sort of balls to go after people who endanger officers lives by deliberate acts of lying and omission. Now the officer has to go through all sorts of testing for AIDS, hepatitis and god knows what else for the next 6 to 12 months because the shithead lied. Damn right the asshole ought to get a "reminder" not to lie, because that's about the ONLY damn justice the PO is ever going to see in this case. The primary victim is the store - you're just collateral damage.

Here's the kicker though. The partners in both cases have been stripped. Great. The Department, not content with destroying your ability to earn overtime, stacking the merit process with their political cronies, rigging the tests with "sooper-sekret" study groups (the list goes on and on), now wants to create a generation of snitches. Not that we object to snitches per se; you get caught stealing, torturing prisoners or taking out insurance claims on people you plan to kill, you deserve whatever they can pin on you. People like that make us all look bad. What we object to is suspending the partner for not reporting what was a completely justified reaction to getting cut by a concealed razor blade after the prisoner LIED about having it.

We challenge any boss to state if they have ever:
  • (A) seen a copper ask a hype if he had any needles, razors, or sharp objects that might cut an officer,
  • (B) then seen a copper FIND a needle, razor or sharp object in the jagoff's pocket,
  • (C) seen the hype get a rap in the head for lying about what he had, and
That would be a damn short list. Not many people with gold stars got where they are because they snitched if a hype got whacked for lying about what he had in his pockets. Yes, we know there are gold stars that got where they are BECAUSE they snitched and wore wires on certain tact teams, but we're not talking about them today. We're talking about the City and the Department NOT wanting you to be the police anymore.

We're done. Comment away. Use bad language if you want. We did. Please avoid slandering anyone by name, also like we did. We're sure we'll have more to say on this later.

Its high time P.O.s conduct a serious investigation on these alleged shoplifter cases. If the store doesnt have all the elements on video advise warrants and release the accused if they say they didnt do it. Advise the accusesed of legal recourse for the trama and embarassment they went through by being unjustly handcuffed and detained. Inventory all eveidence, if the store refuses they have no case. Varify security witness social security # and home address. If they refuse there is no case. Put the info on the case report. Be sure to tell the mope that he/she has a right to the case report and how to obtain a copy. Do this in the presence of the store security. If there is a mark on the accused lock up the store security pimp who put it there. Sign they complaint for the mope if they are a yout. In other words... its on motherfuckers

The day I saw the Supt. waddle across the alter to hug Rev. Meeks was my final straw!

What a bunch of just spineless yellow back weasels as bosses we have.

Everyone so fucking worried about keeping their postion or their take home car that they act like
little sissy ass bitches!

As for the shoplifters.....

This ine is easy......

Any shoplifter who makes an allegation that the security person touched, grabbed or hit them... just make a second case report out for battery and place the security officer under arrest as well.

Nearly 40 years ago there was such a thing as a CTA Dick. They had their own police department. Their 100 or so officers consistantly killed more mopes that the entire CPD. They took no shit from anyone. The dead mopes never got a CR number against anyone. That department was quietly disbanded and one day the Mass Transit Unit was born.

Maybe the Cook County Medical Examiner is going to need more space for dead mopes.

I no longer give a rat's ass for anyone other than my fellow cops.
Anyone who becomes a threat to me is going to zipped up in a rubber bag.

Dead men tell no tales. Since State's Attorney Devine is so "letter of the law" focused. Call felony review for everything that is technically a felony as defined in the law. Wait for felony review tie up the system and stay off the street.

Men it is time for a job action.

Where is the FOP. No support from Daley, and I cant believe that fuckin Cline. His shithead son got a CR# on our lock up because his guys waited forty minutes to get in with their bs three grams of weed arrest. 3 men working lock up forty people already housed. I wished Kline would have dropped dead instead of poor John Thomas.

Please join my prayer group
in requesting GODS intervention in casting the fuck head daley and Kline to hell. May fat phil drop dead. We should all call in sick in different areas of the city.
An illegal sick out would be a no confidence vote for Cline @ Daley.

Then lets handle every job correctly, call for a sgt. to swear the victim, call for a transport on the street. Grid lock.

Kline has always been a backstabber and a weasel. If there were a Marquette "11" instead of 10, he would have gone to jail to. At least thats what the prosecutor of the Marquette 10 felt.

Every job we get needs to be investigated to death. We need to learn ho to take the secenic and slow route to get there. Equipment breakdowns and alike. Perhaps our mayor needs to figure out he needs us for a change.

They only way they will learn is to lay off the mopes for a while in the better neighborhoods.

One of the first places to start is with watch commanders that take a small case and try to make the Lindberg kidnapping out of it. Sometimes a case is s*** and there is nothing that can be done.

Like when the W/C tries to pin an entire pattern on some mope because it is in the DOC. Hey! if he deserves it hammer him, but if not let the dets. tell the W/C he has nothing.

The case you cited needed a detective with creativity that could get the charges approved. If not, go for the override. The problem there is on an override when it gets to court the ASA will nolle pros it at the direction of that goof Dick Devine.

The other night I was at a social function and ran into a fella I hadn't seen in a while. He told me he was a good friend of Dick Devine and said Devine was a good guy. I told him I didn't like Devine and he was no friend of the police.

He said nothing and walked away. Oh well, no Jumping Jack at the block party next year.

Coppers who work in these disstricts with lots of bars need to be on the alert. These shithead doorman lump people like crazy and coppers just haul them away. All those clubs have video. Start locking up these doormen for shit that's way excessive and putting you in the middle.

This is getting really interesting. Again, a reminder...

If any sworn member(s) of the CPD need any FREE information concerning possible federal litigation versus the City of Chicago for retaliation for exercising First Amendment rights to speak out on matters of PUBLIC concern, contact me at the following eMail address.

Any communication will be strictly CONFIDENTIAL.

While I have extensive personal experience at suing these treacherous, low-life motha fuckers, I am NOT an attorney.

Essentially, in determining a (police officer's) rights of free speech, the problem is to arrive "at a balance between the interests of the (police officer), as a citizen, in commenting upon matters of PUBLIC concern and the interest of the (City of Chicago) promoting the efficiency of the public services it performs through its employees."

I ask only one prerequisite before eMailing me for CONFIDENTIAL possible assistance:

You MUST first read the three following seminal U.S. Supreme Court decisions concerning First Amendment cases. No problem if you do not have access to a law library.

Merely use your favorite search engine and enter the CAPITALIZED word with the appropriate citation in quotation marks.

CONNICK v. Myers ("461 US 138")

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

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


P.S.: I repeat. I am NOT an attorney. I am a RETIRED CPD sergeant.

What responsibility does the girlwho was shoplifting's mother or parent have in this. If one of my kids got caught shoplifting and direspected the police the way this girl did, I hope the officer handeling the case would give em a crack or two. I'd shake their hand and say thanks right before I said goodbye to my progeny as they take em off to the station. In the day if I got caught by the police and the officer gave me a crack, i get my ass whipped by my parents for bothering the officer.

And the states attorney's office sucks. How many times have these two asshole shoplifters been arrested in the past without getting a felony upgrade or going to the audy.

No, it's our fault these thugs and theves behave the way they do. Let's see who the Unions endorse this next election. I'll lay odds Devine gets the node from the unions.

Baby Cline spent less than a year in 010? Hah! Try less than a period. Before that he was in narcotics 1 day after he had two years on the job. Then he was a dick for a few months and then sgt. A year in TRU after 010 and then off to intelligence. Can someone please get me a weekend dayoff group on 2nd watch with a take home car. Do you think this guy knows what 1st watch is? I bet there'll be a Lt's test the day after he has two years of sgt. time.

Want to screw the department without violating department rules or breaking the law here’s how: After roll call refuse to sign for your squadrol because it doesn't have the equipment as stated by g.o. 97-2
Have you ever read what’s supposed to be in a squad car or Squadrol? All kinds of crazy shit, first aid kits, blankets, rope, flares, deodorant spray, stretchers, fire extinguishers, crow bar, bolt cutter, etc, etc.
Its all fun and games until you get sued because you didn't have a flare and blanket to give a subject and now he is emotionally distressed and can't work to feed his babies mommy. Refuse to sign for it, put it on the department. And who are these bosses that sign the inspection sheet every week? Sounds like they need to be held accountable and if you don't turn them in you better watch your back you'll get stripped and fired.

To the person who was thinking about leaving the burbs for Chicago...... If you like it in the ass....take our test. If your normal, stay where you are.. If you came here, you would think about suicide because you have to watch boring streaming videos everyday at roll-call and hear how "guns-gangs-drugs" stop crime. As far any other kind of enforcement your looked down on. As far as training.....umm none, never, unless the Dept gets sued or a dept member dies then it will be on a streaming video at roll-call.

I was feeling so depressed before I read this blog. I thought "I love this job, I want to do this job right. I want to catch the bad pieces of fucking human waste and love it" I know the city has truly pussified us as a department. Have a look at the recruits that enter your what a bunch of lil bitches.....Its a sad day, and I will leave the tact team and go to a beat car and write paper . thats all the city wants ,is late response to calls (no offender then) and smiling happy paper. Why do you think whenever you get a IP call its got a fucking beard on it? The city does not want you to hurt anyone, its cheaper and better press if you get killed than you killing a mutt.

To anonymous at 1:16am. I have a easy solution for you. QUIT. If you are so bitter about this job, then leave and flip hamburgers. Let some aggressive officers work the street and back up other working police. Easy to bitch and hide. Try working for a change. Who cares about the entire department. Worry about your watch and partner. I am so tired of whinners. Why do you care if you have training? There are opportunities to improve your skills. Must "they" do everything for you? Somehow, a working officer will accomplish the work without whinning.
