Do You Have the Inner Eye?

While we are waiting for our inevitable discovery, here's a fun project for everyone - you get to play Jeane Dixon for a thread. Dazzle us with your predictions for the year 2006. Let's try to keep it within a few categories:
  • Political - it can be local, state or national. We have a midterm election in November and a whole boatload of looming indictments locally. This ought to be a good one.
  • Sports - the Sox are looking very good after the winter meetings, but could the Cubs be the next team to break the century old curse? Probably not, but still ...
  • Departmental - what does the future have in store for the Chicago Police Department? More manpower shortages? A new Superintendent? You tell us!
  • General - predict trends, predict fashion, predict Hollywood box office totals, whatever. Just keep it clean.
Knock your socks off people. Find a quiet place, a "happy" place, meditate upon the task at hand and see if you can do better than Jeane Dixon ever dreamed of doing.

I predict some stupid copper will get shitfaced, drive drunk, and get in a crash. This is not something I hope comes true, but alas, it seems to be the way things have played out over the years.

I'd take it as a personal favor if everyone proves me wrong!!

Happy New Year

I suspect...hmmm...Miss Scarlett with the knife in the...oh wait that's the wrong game....

I predict that the tower around Da Mare will continue to crumble but I don't think Patty Fitz is gonna be able to put him in the pokey in 2006.

As for the Department I see fine officers like the first poster pulling the plug. Happy retirement to him and all the others! I see more changes in the department not exactly for the better but we are tough and will roll with the punches so to speak.

I think while Congress would like to impeach Bush (something they probably should have done long ago) they will not have the gonads or the funds to do it. The Clinton thing will have them gunshy.

That's all I got, I tried to be vague like the real psychos, I mean psychics.

Happy and Safe New Years to everyone!

2) And, I WILL NOT be his replacement.

Here we go, no dazzle, dear M, just pondering:

Political: someone close to YOUR president will be indicted, hopefully, the V.P., but more likely some oil cronie

It will be shown YOUR president has spied on more Americans than Nixon. Those Quakers are dangerous you know.

Sports: Bears will make it to NFC title game and lose to Seattle

Sox, unfortunately, will not repeat

Departmental: Cline will pull the pin because of health reasons and the new super will be a F/4.

General: it will be shown M is, in fact, a member of the inter santum of the superintendent. He's the guy who opens and closes the car door when the boss arrives at 35th st.

I predict a bunch of stupid coppers doing stupid things making us all look stupid, same as last year, and the year before that, and the year before that...

I agree, Cline will retire by the end of 2006 and my two choices for that spot would be Charles Williams or Hiram Grau...as if I had a choice...

The Department will continue to be short handed, and the City will continue to lie about it and recite the mantra, "more with less, more with less".

A Federal investigation will take apart a major unit, ala Rampart CRASH, and be one the bigger scandals faced by this Department in it's history. *HINT HINT*

SOS, TRU, 016, and 008 will still continue to suck. ( I don't believe that, but I gave in to peer pressure )

King Daley will leave City Hall in handcuffs right before the election and Jesse Jr. will take over...Lordy lordy help us.

Dana Starks will impregnate two or three of the multitude of ho's, I mean fine police women, that work under him...and on top of him...and...

So many predictions, so little time....

.... On New Years Eve, all of the 35th St. house mouses will be out in force conducting seat belt missions and making out contact cards. This is in an effort to even further lower the homicide rate.
....in 2006 Supt. Cline's new Ford Explorer will get a suspension upgrade.
.... 1st Deputy CAPS Superintendant Starks will get a new beret while waiting for the order to restore peace in war torn Paris.
....in 2006 an estimated 120,000 citizens will take the new CPD entrance exam. Only 200 will be hired due to lack of federal funding and no vacancies in TRU and SOS.
....in 2006 Dept. Supt Radke will consider having another one on the house.
.... In 2006 Chief of Staff Huberman will resign in a scandal over the hiring of the Vienna Boys Choir to run the Hired Truck Program.
....In 2006 Lefty,Shady and Mal will piss off the general public and be forced to become the Mayor's newest Chief of Staff. They will last about 3 months before the Mayor realizes its the same person.
....In 2006, TRU, SOS, 16 and 8 will no longer "suck". The will be upgraded to "asshats".

WELL, THE PROPERTY INVENTORIED WAS THE MICROPHONE BOX WHICH IS CONNECTED TO THE NEW CAMERA MOUNTED IN THE CAR. I SUPPOSE A CR # IS FORTHCOMING??? ISN'T THAT DAMAGE TO CITY PROPERTY??? MAYBE AN ARREST. HOW DUMB OR PARANOID CAN OFFICERS BE??? THE OFFICER IN QUESTION HAS ALREADY BEEN PSYCHED ONCE. I'M SURE HE NEEDS A FEW MORE SESSIONS. IS EVERYONE OUT TO GET HIM, OR IS HE JUST THAT STUPID??? HE ALSO WENT ON THE MEDICAL FOR STOMACH PAINS. IT PAINS ME TO THINK THAT HE IS STILL ON THIS JOB!!!

I predict that SCC WILL be outed by some anonymous douchebag on this very site, just not on New Years Eve like some smart ass threatened.

I figure that he has shared his true identity with at least a few co-workers by now. Well everyone should know that three people can keep a secret if TWO of them are DEAD!

Sooner or later, the info will slip. I hope that the bosses play nice with him after that.

This is a fun site, if not a bit frustrating with all the shit slinging. I hope it sticks around and I wish SCC the best in the new year!

I predict European-Americans shall continue to hold down persons of color, although persons of color are gaining momentum.

I predict SCC shall be outted by another European-American. It serves no purpose like "lefty" earlier wrote. Like "lefty," I too could enjoy the company of SCC, if I had to hang with a person of his heritage.

I predict European-Americans shall flock to watch the Bears win all. Coached by an African-American, mind you. Also like "lefty" I too wish to see Jeff Blake at the helm. How come African-Americans cannot own teams?

I do not enjoy all that "lefty" comments upon. I think perhaps, it is his "white guilt."

I believe SCC is "Shady." His dual (sometimes triple) personality can be rather humorous at times.

There isn't supposed to be a microphone in the car. The mikes that go with the car are going to be worn on the officer individually. There should not have been a mike in the car. Same squad bugged a few years back too as well as the wagon.

Doesn't matter who found it, it's funny to watch the coverup follow.

Deputy Chief Frank R. will be shitfaced on New Years Eve.
Sgt. Hitney will do something stupid.
Matt Cline will do very well on the Lts. test.
SCC will begin an annual tradition, a variation of the Festivus theme. This celebration will include feats of strength, the airing of grievances (which has been done so well on this site), and THE POSTING OF FUNNY PICTURES!
