Quick hits!

Yes, CPD is in the news yet again.
The Ryan Harris murder; the short version? CPD framed a child for a brutal murder.

Cleaning up the streets. Hooray for Commander Rottner! Good call.

Shooting in Hyde Park. We repeat, everyone is going to be bidding south if this keeps up. All the action for the last few days has been down there.
Look for Lieutenants to be named Wednesday or Thursday. Looks like just under 50 so far. We don't know if we'll post the whole list; depends on what kind of typing we are in the mood to do.

Far as I can tell, that wasn't a shooting in Hyde Park. The dead jackass had an address in Hyde Park (just inside 021), but he was the guy who was brought to justice at 90th and Justine (in 022). Please delete this if I'm wrong.

The boys in 22 do a great job on the east end of the district. The young guys on afternoons and midnights do a lot of the hard work, the east end is just as busy as 004,006, and 005. I think the 022nd district gets slammed because it has good places to eat at, and it makes other coppers jealoius.

I know the afternoon cops on beat 2211 are good workers, one came from 004 and I think the other lad was in 007. The mid night crew on 2211 are a disgrace. if you get in trouble on the first watch you want 2213, 2222, 2234,
or your out of luck. Those kids work there asses off and get no respect. Im also sure there are other good guys we dont know about. I have experience in Area 1 and Area 2 and I can honseltly say there are good coppers in 22 just like in 007,008,009,021,004,005,006.

The problem is the tax payers do not get the service we deserve. 2211 took a personal the other night at 95th and Ashland. Why couldnt they take that personal at 103rd and Pulaski or 103 and Kedzie? That pissses me off because some poor off duty copper now will wait for an assist. At least Merrionette Park and Evergreen monitor zone 9. Why would the Sgt. allow them to leave their sector at 0300 hrs?

We shouldnt slam our brothers in 022, I just wish we could get some ghetto sergeants who understand beat integrity. If I was a boss I would give the workers in the district beat 2211 on there last night,
so that the tax payer would get service and the workin cops could have any easy shift instead of there 15 to 20 jobs in the 20 or 30 sector. Just imagine what the real police could on view. If the mid nite dicks can make felony arrests why cant the beat car 2211.

Beat 2211 has never made a felony arrest on mid nites in the last two years according to my sources who dispatch the dicks. We dont need the curfew police, we need on view robbery arrests, and dope arrests. These white junkies are breaking into the garages out here and homes, with out any police presence.

How come Sgt. Red would make felony arrests on 2211 before he went to days.

I respect the male coppers in the 22nd District that work the east end.

Sorry to offend anybody.

***Seriously. are you SMOKING CRACK? My guess is you are a southwest sider who has never been anywhere else in the CITY to eat. You can't possibly believe that 22 has the best places to eat. You need to get out more.

The problem is the tax payers do not get the service we deserve.

***Talk to other coppers who pay way more taxes on the northside and can't get the service because we are understaffed. Hell, we can't even get time due half the time because of our low crime rate, we don't get the manpower.

Why would the Sgt. allow them to leave their sector at 0300 hrs?

***Seriously, I am starting to think that you ARE smoking crack. You can take your personal anywhere in the district that you want to. Are you telling me that you think we should only eat, take personals, etc on our beat? What about the ghetto cops that don't have a place to eat on their beat? Maybe you have never worked in a district like that but I assure you. There wasn't ONE place to eat or go to the bathroom for that matter on my beat when I worked on the westside.

We shouldnt slam our brothers in 022, I just wish we could get some ghetto sergeants who understand beat integrity.

****Beat integrity is supposed to exsist but NEVER has. We just don't have the manpower.

If I was a boss I would give the workers in the district beat 2211 on there last night,so that the tax payer would get service and the workin cops could have any easy shift instead of there 15 to 20 jobs in the 20 or 30 sector. Just imagine what the real police could on view.

***Hopefully you are a young buck and have a long time before you are a boss. I can't believe you honestly think the way that you do. Why are the citizens of 2211 more deserving of police service than any other beat. IMO, with all the cops and firemen that live there, it's pretty well protected by them.

Beat 2211 has never made a felony arrest on mid nites in the last two years according to my sources who dispatch the dicks.

***I hope someone disputes this, I find this very hard to believe. Sounds like you are going by the word of someone instead of looking it up before shooting your mouth off.

I respect the male coppers in the 22nd District that work the east end.


My guess is that you are a young male copper that works in the 22nd District on Midnights and you work the east end. You are pissed off that you have to work so hard. LOL
pssssssssssssst Bid to a busy district and get some experience before you mouth off about how the job should be. Go work in 002 or 011 and volunteer to eat on your beat and take personals on my beat. You will then have my respect.

"Garda", your obvious sincerity is compelling. While I concede that I personally have no knowledge of the 022 FACTS I've got your back, my brothah!

We gotta do lunch in Fillmo' sometime. Outstanding cuisine includes the best ribs this side of Lem's and awesome peach cobbler!

Bon apetit, office!

Garda,
You have your facts wrong about 022 and 2211. They have made felony arrests within the last year..
Also, there are female officers who work all the "good" beats you mentioned on 1st watch.. What is your beef with all females? I can see having problems with certain individuals, but can't we get rid of the stereotyping? I don't think there is a group that is 100% bad, just like there is no group that is 100% good... the world just isn't like that.
I don't want to offend either, but, hey, why don't you bid into 022 if you think things are so badly done there.
I can't believe you are going to beef about where 2211 has their lunch... after all there is not even one restaurant open in that district on midnights... the big choices are 7-11/white hen/walgreens/pick up mc donalds.. that is it...

i'd like to know how many people bitching about 022 have a cush job. everyone has advice and talks shit about 022, but there is no one bidding in but dogs, and this is your neighborhood. the last 6 months there have been about 15 openings in 022 and i bet all you guys with the comments & criticisms did not attempt to bid. if you're working the streets in patrol, why not bid here & protect your own interests instead of the ghetto? shame on you....

Let's not play "the misogyny card" here. The best coppers come in all colors and BOTH genders. Same with the ones that roll in the opposite direction on a 10-1.

It never ceases to amaze me how a rather petite lady officer can defuse a volatile situation while some guy built like an NFL linebacker can constantly escalate a situation into a 10-1.

Unlike most of you active officers, I am admittedly out of the loop. Notwithstanding, I often hear nice comments from the male troops about some of the lady officers and supervisors who are assigned to my district of residence (018).

Damn it, we're all BLUE!

Sure you do, defuse this. They cause all the 10-1s. Every job is a 10-1. Buy a scanner and listen.

Anonymous, no one group causes ALL the 10-1's and it is silly of you to say so.

I'm on a tight budget. I'll be buying a police scanner only AFTER I assemble my favorite gangsta rap and hip-hop CDs.

My current favorite is "Glock all the Bitches and Hoes, MoFo!"

Great lyrics and beat.

Females start more s**t with their mouths than they ever solve. That goes for on the street, in the station, and under the supervisor's desk. It's easy to talk like a tough guy when you know the "linebacker" type, as they were called, will come flying when the high pitched screech, "get me some units", goes over the zone.

Hey Serg!
Still awaiting for that tag match against you and Garda. You want me to pick Bush Boy or Lefty? We can have the match in 018. You probably live in a high rise anyway.

I would consider such a match for a police charity, however, I think in the middle of the match the sergeant, Garda and Anonymous boy would triple team me. Kind of like when Adrian Adonis turned on Dick the Bruiser in their match against the Valiant Brothers in a cage match at the old International Amphitheare.

Woemn coppers are worthless but so are bitch male coppers that work bitch districts(016,017, ok any north district except 015 and 025). Watch them run with the best of em. But I look down on workin coppers in fast districts leave 011 and 015 and go work in 016 where real police are needed before 016 turns out like 015. And for you clone dorks that live in edison park there are mules and crime up there.....
