Welcome to Ethics 101

  • Chicago's 50 aldermen and 35,872 city employees will be required to undergo ethics training every year -- instead of confining classes to 3,800 top managers every four years -- under a crackdown triggered by City Hall corruption scandals.
Wheh! Just in time, too! Because it was really looking like there might be a problem with a few hundred trucks sitting around doing nothing. Or that downtown park with the shiny sculpture. Or the parking lot that can't seem to pay off it's bond issue. Or those crumbling flower boxes that block traffic views (any report on how they're holding up plowing streets?) Or that airport that disappeared. Or those Water Department people swiping in and out for each other. Or the Lincoln Park land sold to developers for $1. Or the insurance mogul with all the connections. Or the politically connected felons holding down jobs paying a hundred grand a year. Or the 911 center that tripled in price. Or the computer systems in cars and districts that if they stay operating for more than 24 hours straight, they call the pope to verify a miracle has occurred. Or the next jackass with a badge embarrassing the rest of us.

You can tell that ethics were always a TOP priority in the city of Chicago. Another hour of our lives that we won't be getting back because "Friends of City Hall" just can't keep their paws clean.

I had to endure the ethics training, and found that very little of the class was remotely applicable to police work. Most of the stuff was for City Employees relatives doing business with the city. Some stuff on accepting gifts and fees. But we all know the Police don't accept gifts and fees . . . . right kids?

I think, in light of the copper from 018 buying 50lbs of weed last week and now the copper from 013 stealing an arrestee's credit cards for a shopping spree, we should keep our mouths shut about ethics for a while.

That shitbag from 013 who got locked up yesterday and gave us all another blackeye? He was arrested at least once, I think twice, on Domestic Battery charges in the last few years. He even BFW'd on the last arrest and had a warrant out for him.

WHY IN THE FUCK WAS THIS LOSER STILL ON THE STREET?????

We've got decent coppers down at call back being held prisoner for BULLSHIT, while this woman beating, theiving clown is still working a wagon! Unreal!

The longer I'm on this job, the more I hate everyone except for my dog!

Sorry - didn't know where else to post this: The rumor is running rampant through the Areas - again - that the pre-Sgts may be sworn in earlier than expected (26 DEC ?) due to federal money issues. Any inside info out there?

The city's fiscal year starts on 1 December and the federal fiscal year starts on 1 October. Not sure how any of that affects federal funding.

HOPEFULLY, WHEN THE WAR WINDS DOWN, WE ATTRACT MORE VETERAN APPLICANTS . PEOPLE, WHO I BELIEVE SHOULD HAVE A SHOT IN THIS TYPE OF PROFESSION. I KNOW FOR A FACT THAT MOST OF THESE VETERANS, IN THEIR MID 20'S ,( THE MAJORITY OF) ,WILL HAVE ENOUGH SENSE AND MATURITY AFTER HAVING SERVEDIN THE MILITARY . MOST WILL HAVE LEARNED GOOD WORK ETHICS AND DISCIPLINE AND PROFESSIONALISM ..YOU KNOW, THE TYPES THAT DON'T COMPLAIN AND JUST DO WHAT THEY ARE SUPPOSED TO DO. THESE GUYS IN THE COMBAT ZONE DON'T EVEN MAKE HALF THE MONEY THAT P.O.'S MAKE--YET THEY DON'T WHINE AND BITCH LIKE THE DOG ASSES IN THIS DEPARTMENT DO.

P.S.
TO ALL THE BRAVE MEN AND WOMEN SERVING THEIR COUNTRY...I WISH THEM ALL HAPPY HOLIDAYS, AND HOPE THAT THEY MAKE IT HOME SOON TO BE WITH THEIR FAMILIES.

Ethics questions: 1) is a short ethics class a substitute for morals and teachings a person probably should have learned already, i.e., don't lie or steal?; 2) what is it about human nature that seems to discourage reporting on others in your organization, i.e., cops can put their lives on the line every day, with little or no regard for their safety, but will they take action or report on one of their own? Similarly, firefighters, streets and san workers, etc., don't seem eager to report misconduct among their own.....questions, no answers...

May the new Detectives that are Supercops enjoy their rotation through SVU so that they will realize like the ones before them that SVU does more than they ever thought possible.

I guess if folks here aren't kicking down an African-American then it's a Latino-American. Any person of color will do I guess.

Don't get me wrong, if this officer has done something wrong he has to pay the price, but racial commentaries are unnecessary.

Put your sheets back in the closet, it's Christmas time.

must be time for the green sheets, rather than the white ones, you are right. LAPA, HDO, who gives a rats ass, get the jagoff off of the street if he's got a warrant. WHAT THE FUCK!!!
So, I'm thinking that it's OK to have a warrant on you, but don't you dare go on the street without a Daily Bulletin???? And you wonder what the fuck is wrong with this department?

Don't hate the player. Hate the game.
Who ever the next Mayor will be is going to pull the same bs as King Richie, only worse.
Next possible Mayors:
Jesse Jackson Jr. King of Beers Jr. becomes King of Clout. Every Reverand from Roosevelt to Richton Park will have their hands out when he gets made.
Luis Guttierrez the former gang member turned US Rep now starts reppin' as the 5 Star Elite General of Monetary Distribution for the Imperial Gangsters of Chicago.

Same game different players.

I think Malcolm the 10th's brother from another baby momma should shut his fucking bean-pie hole. I'm Latino and I wasn't offended by anyone ripping on LAPA. Aginagua, Martinez, and Para are all crooks. They would at a minimum be fired if it wasn't for LAPA. Save your people of color bullshit. I ain't in your rainbow and have nothing in common with you. The racism I've encountered from blacks has been ten times worse than any I've ever gotten from whites. I speak two European languages; English and Spanish. Is Ebonics a European dialect? When we, the Latinos, are running this town, and that day is coming, you shiftless, lazy, motherfuckers won't have anything coming. Right now is as good as its gonna get for you. So suck off whitey's tit all you can, because our milk is gonna be bitter motherfucker.
