So What do you Want to See?

We spent about 90 minutes surfing the web today, and there isn't much out there this weekend that piques our interest. How about you guys? Anything come to mind? Bears lost, Cubs and Sox won (magic number is 5 or so), Blackhawks are playing right now. We're just waiting for the soap opera that is the police department to open for business again come Monday.

I haven't seen a follow-up to the comment about the NYPD significantly lowering its starting salary while giving raises to bascially most others.

I know this is a Chicago police blog, but I'd love to see if anyone here has any thoughts about (or even knows of) former Boston Police commissioner Evans. Not so well liked by the troops, but responsible for a massive drop in crime and homicides that preceded (and was then overshadowed by) New York's. Great Britian took the unprecedented step last year or so of making him the commissioner of the part of the Home Office which is responsible for seeking out and finding the best policing solutions in the world. Gotta wonder if any boss in Chicago would even recognize this guy in a crowd on the street, what with him actually knowing how to get things done and all. Things in Boston ain't looking so good now that he's gone and they brought in a kinder-and-gentler O'Toole, who is clearly way out of her league in Evans' wake.

Bratton in LA? I'm a huge fan, but it was certainly telling that part of his solution for the city of LA was to actually hire thousands more police to bring the department's numbers more in-line with other major PDs in the U.S. Politics nixed that one.

Ramsey in DC? The Washington Post did an article last year saying that homicides were basically unchanged since he started, though they had dropped significantly in most other major cities in the same time period. Chicago's finest indeed.

And Gainer, formerly of the ISPD, and formerly of the CPD, now in charge of the Capitol Hills PD. 2000 officers give-or-take to protect a bunch of politicians. I've been to concerts on the Capitol lawn, and its notable how young and ex-military-like the officers mostly look. 6'0 rule????

An AP evacuation story was on the front page of Yahoo news today. Hey, you heard the screeching here first, huh? Milwaukee says its actually misplaced its Cold War evacuation plan, and will promptly start creating another. LA admitted that they have no such thing (yet). The Feds are on the verge of ordering plans for every major metro area. Seems like a prime area to increase funding for mass-transit surface train systems.

But you know your audience. All politics is local and all that. Anyone figure out the actual manpower numbers for Chicago yet?

I understand that a class is starting soon.

Oh, and can we start a pool on dates for Blago and Daley's indictments, respectively?

Or how about tips and clues about favoritism/corruption that has reaped millions for friends and relatives of the connected? If that safe here? If so, Joyce's relatives... and Navy Pier concessions. That's my secret for the day.

So, how YOU doin?

Editorial Correction with spelling:

Congratulations to Stacey Johnson-Rodriguez-Kuhn-Caves-Breene-Smith.

Can't wait for the baby shower...

Will she wear her short shorts or her micro mini-skirt? The thigh high boots will look good with either. The sheer white blouse with the animal print bra under it is always a plus.

Special congratulations were given by The Divorce Attorney Association of America and the Child Support Unit of the States Attorney's Office.

Her current husband is THE best cop in Chicago, and he tells everyone he is just in case you didn't know!

By the way, even a 747 Jet looks small in the Grand Canyon!

Stay tune as Oprah Winfrey has Stacey as a guest next week. Show topic: 23,457 DNA tests yields no positive hit for the father.
Show producers now have asked for the CPD personnel listing to help find more possible candidates.

WOW, the last poster is a sure win for being made detective shortly.

"Who are we talking about?"


They only named the person they are talking about in the post, Duh! But he or she can't fighure out who they are talking about?

And the question should be.....

Who are THEY talking about?

This would be the guy trying to figure out who committed the crime on the named offender case report.

What's the point of picking on her?

You mean to say if she came on to you that you'd do the upstanding thing? Seems to that perhaps one of the four (five?) surnames, or a buddy, is the mud-slinger here. What's thematter, aliminony check too high?

If she wore the badge of each guy she had in her

She wouldn't be strong enough to stand up with them all on!

I know it would be more stars then the American flag and the Stars Spangled Banner put together!

Be glad she has the name Smith now.
Easier to check into the hotels with the married coppers.

She is not the ONLY female Smith on this job with that many stars. I know of a few others.

"Smith" is just a faze. Couldn't you just let him enjoy his 5 minutes in the saddle.

That saddle has a larger DNA bank than the Chicago Police Dept. and the Federal Government combined.

The LESBIANS of AMERICA asked her to be their sperm bank for lesbians seeking to have children.

We must be dealing with a police force full of jealous losers with nothing better to do with their time but try to make other people look bad. Try getting a life and being a real cop. Go find some crime to fight or something. These people must have extremely small anatomy, and putting other people down is their way of feeling "big". Sad part is, you pigs are most likely married. Tell your wives to get the gym and maybe you'll be more interested in them!PIGS

So police officers are "pigs".

WTF are you? A throwback to the Black Panther Party ("off the PIGS!).
