Quick Hits - Police Edition

For a Saturday in the fall:
  • Murder probe Thwarted Again. So says the Tribune (registration may be required). The same investigation that just cost the state taxpayers $360,000 because of meddling in a politically connected homicide is going under AGAIN because of politics. The number of days until this is referred to a Federal Prosecutor is getting smaller. You might see Federal oversight of the State Police before you do CPD.
  • Family Sues in TASER death. The Times has this article. If it was anywhere but Cook County, it'd be dismissed tomorrow, even if tomorrow is Sunday. First off, the medical examiner's report says the dead guy had "a lethal level" of meth in his system. The fact that he could still walk is a miracle. Secondly, the family claims that "lethal force" was not necessary because he "was not armed and did not posed a threat of serious injury." Um, excuse us, but he attacked the police and threatened to infect them with AIDS. Last time we checked, AIDS would seem to be a "threat of serious injury." Or has the alternative lifestyle crowd been lying to us for the past 25 years?
  • And a 16th straight night of rioting in Paris. Funny how this popped up in the media for about 2 days then disappeared again. "Only" 502 cars torched last night, so we guess it isn't as big a deal anymore.

And the city and county will pay them off to avoid a riot and typical actions by a typical group of animals. Again why do anything by the means of POLICE WORK.

If we all just stick together and stop. Of course it will get worse before it gets better. But we have to get a long hard look at the final outcome.

Why would any Chicago Cop try and do Police work for this city when it would fire you in a moments notice without a proper investigation. Unless of course you have a big political connection. The your only owned for the rest of your carreer.

The family knew that a scum their brother was - did you notice the last line of the article? The sister provided the tips to solve the case of the charge of illegal transportation of a dead body...
Not good enough to claim as their own in his life time, but once he dies, his value sure does go up, doesn't it?

Go ahead politicians and legislators, take away the Taser. And when you do you will still have lawsuits. But they won't be excessive force/ ouch the taser hurts suits. They will be expensive wrongful death suits brought on by scumbag attorneys. Take away a P.O's Taser, oh wait, no one but SOS has them, and he will go to the next tool on his belt, his pistol. I'll be goddamned if I am going to let some jagoff with AIDS try to infect me. He's getting ten to the chest. As will anyone else who swings a bat at me, attacks me, etc. We all know the city welcomes these suits because they never fight them, they just pay the extortion, which creates more cases. I am going home to my wife at the end of the night. It is up to Daley and his administration how that happens.

Heres enough to get your blood boiling if you live in 014, 016, 017, 023.
For the next two days all tact teams from those districts have to report to the Ickies projects because some gang banging mutt shot a "high ranking" gang banging mutt and he's now brain dead.
The police role here...not to kick in doors and find this mutt but to make sure there is no retaliation. WAIT since when did we start providing security services to offenders to keep them safe?
The tact teams were told in no uncertain terms not to look for the offender but if he turns himself in to you, WITH AN ID, they can arrest him. Short of that they are to make 2 contact cards each during their tour. (why they don't just do a seatbelt mission dragnet and catch him is beyond me)
WHATS NEXT CPD drivers for all ranking gang members?

I found it funny politicans that called for the TASER, because they believed the ole billy club (baton) was dangerous now are against the TASER and want those shotguns that fires a bean bag.

The fact is those politicans, and just about all of them are NOT liberal, will back the public against us, or worse yet remain quiet.

I can relate to the AIDS scare for police. I was once bitten, broke skin and drew blood, during a fight with a person with AIDS. Thankfully everything worked out alright.

The ASA refused to go with the charge about a person with AIDS knowingly trying to infect a person. When it went to court Judge SALONE asked me why that particular charge was not there. I shrugged my shoulders and said Felony Review said Dick DEVINE wouldn't gor for it.

So my fellow CPD. What are we prepared to do to get back on track?

TASERS, bean bag guns, mumbo jumbo,
when a po feels that his/her life is in danger it's time to pull the ol roscoe and fire all six into the offender. Six at about 38 cents apiece is a small price for officers safety. Devine is not the friend of the enforcer. Be sure to articulate your endangerment

Sorry to break into this thread, but I've just learned that the City has been drawing beat cars on the week ends from every district on midnights and sending them to 011, I believe in violation of the contract. Please let the FOP and your Unit Rep know if this has happended to you. Please tell them if you were asked or just sent to 011. Thank you.

Yea and FOP will spring into action on our behalf. Give me a break. When I get assigned to another district, I go and I dont do a damn thing unless another copper calls for help. If we all would stick together this wouldnt be happening. As for FOP. They dont do anything that the mayor doesnt want them to.
