Once Again, We Need FACTS

A bunch of people got taken in (ourselves being among the worried ones) by the rumors abounding yesterday of the Sergeant's test being cancelled or postponed. Turns out it was BS and the only fax that came out yesterday was about military personnel being eligible.

Now we read about superbids coming out for Housing. Let's get some FACTS posted here on this one before everyone runs with it. Thanks.

And yes, we saw the ReadingList guy posting his e-mail in all the comments sections. Ususally, we'd delete the duplicate entries, but we want to be promoted as much as the next guy does so we left them there. We got one of his disks in the District last time and it's actually a good compilation of the stuff.

Sorry to get off topic but its 'kind of important . . .

I went online to see if the city deposited my regular check. I see that's its about $70.00 more than what I have been getting. I have not gone into work yet to see the checkstub yet.

Effective 0001 hours, 14 Jan 06, the Chicago Police Department will be legit.

Anybody wanna buy a huge chrome
bean for $25?

Hiring wise, we're not alone. According to the "NYPD RANT" blog site...


...the latest class of NYPD recruits will only be paid $25k per annum. This class includes a:

- female dwarf (4'4" tall)

- a 270 pound black female albino who can not tolerate sunlight

- a Dominican male with Tourette's Syndrome who will inexplicably start shouting "Fuck you, muthafuckers!" and other obscenities at the most inappropriate times. (We should draft him for CAPS).

- one male who repeatedly soils his pants when anyone shouts at him.

As our NYPD brethern are saying:
RETIREMENT IS THE GREATEST! Anyone who takes the job has to be non compos mentis. Talk about the "dumbing down" and "brain drain" of the CPD!

Advice to new hires: If you insist, use da job like a cheap whore. Get an education on the City's $$$ and get the fuck out.

raises are great, but my deposit was double what it should have been.
If you are getting the salary compression you have been screwed out of your raise! we should have got our 3.5% increase and the salary compression. NOT JUST COMPRESSION!
Again FOP inability to NEGOTIATE a contract and an arbitrator making all the decision.

No such thing. All the city did was LOWER the top pay by removing the 30yr raise. We got a 3% raise. Nothing was compressed.

I'm a sergeant. WE DON'T have our contract finalized yet. Therefore we should not get any raise or compression.

Any other sgts get an extra $70.00 (or maybe $700000.00) in their check today???

Did you see the fax regarding the step increases? Anyone who was supposed to get one 16 Dec 05, gets their money, with back pay, today.

Those entitled to one as of 1 Jan 06, didn't get it and they don't know when...due to a "citywide issue".

Issues? An issue is when you find out your son likes to wear women's panties. An issue is when you come home and find your spouse nekkid in bed with your dog!

This is bullshit! Frank Wilson should be shot, drug through the streets of Chicago and then strung up like the Italians did to Mussolini!

The Situation in Iraq Is Civil War

by Rep. John P. Murtha - January 12th, 2006

"According to the Random House Unabridged Dictionary, Second Edition, the definition of a civil war is a "war between political factions or regions within the same country." That is exactly what is going on in Iraq, not a global war on terrorism, as the President continues to portray it.

93 percent of those fighting in Iraq are Iraqis. A very small percentage of the fighting is being done by foreign fighters. Our troops are caught in between the fighting. 80 percent of Iraqis want us out of there and 45 percent think it is justified to kill American troops.

Iraqis went to the polls in droves on December 15th and rejected the secular, pro-democracy candidates and those who the Administration in Washington propped up. Preliminary vote results indicate that Iyad Allawi, the pro-American Prime Minister, received about 8 percent of the vote and Ahmad Chalabi, Iraq's current Oil Minister and close associate of the U.S. Iraq war planners, received less than 1 percent. According to General Vines, the top operational commander in Iraq, "the vote is reported to be primarily along sectarian lines, which is not particularly heartening." The new government he said "must be a government by and for Iraqis, not sects."

The ethnic and religious strife in Iraq has been going on, not for decades or centuries, but for millennia. These particular explosive hatreds and tensions will be there if our troops leave in six months, six years or six decades. It is time to re-deploy our troops and to re-focus our attention on the real threats posed by global terrorism."
(Rep. John P. Murtha is a 37-year U.S. Marine Veteran- in the Reserves after his discharge from active duty until he volunteered for Vietnam in 1966-67, receiving the Bronze Star with Combat "V", two Purple Hearts and the Vietnamese Cross of Gallantry... )

how about this regarding payroll F-ups.....the department should hire someone who is some type of comptroller instead of filling the job with another exempt moron who probably knows nothing about it.

I am all for not losing PO position in the department but come on. It is getting really old having things screwed up becasue these departments are staffed with PO's

Hire people with industry experience for Finance, computers, medical, etc.

Housing will be under 018 in the form of a 60 man unit. The left over officers will be displaced between 012,013, and 019. The days of 4 hour days are going to be gone but we beat the city for the past 7 years and gave it a great run. I cant thank the city enough for having this unit and giving me all this freedom but sadly all good things must come to an end. Viva 765!!!!!!

Already getting screwed again by the city with this test. If the order says $25.00 it should be $25.00. Why after it is all said and done am I charged $26.00? What is the buck for? Who gets it? If its tax it is not the rite rate. It must be for stuttering Dicks conected third party pay site who now has ALL of our personal information. Who to say that they will be able to maintain the security of electronic records when they could not even keep track of physical (paper) records. Ask young Matt about his credit rating? Just some things to think about.

John Murtha's combat awards DO NOT give his statements any credence. I am tired of reading his resume every time he opens his mouth. Morale is the most cohesive element of a fighting force. When politicians use service personnel as election fodder they commit a grievous sin. Soldiers, Marines, etc., feel even more alienated from society than we do as the police. When the people who sent you to fight help to erode your support, morale and esprit de corps go south. Having a cloud over your actions does hurt and does cost lives. Murtha seems to have forgotten where he came from and what he went through. As far as I'm concerned he's guilty of sedition. I'm sure you're happy with him because he's jumped on the Nancy Pelosi bandwagon, but he has sold his credibility. For the record I spent more time on active duty than him, saw more combat than him, and have more combat awards than him. If you are so infatuated with resumes then my position should have more credence.

I was a Marine in Viet Nam the same time as Murtha,"My GOD" does'nt this dumb SOB remember all the shit we went thru when we were over there and when we got home? All the protesting that we were baby killers etc,etc, talk about low morale.When I got home and got out I closed the door and locked it, to that part of my life.But I was and still am, proud of my military service and being in the CORPS.Why in the "NAME OF GOD" is this fucking idiot doing what he's doing to "OUR" troops now?

It rewards the dog ass crooks that ride around div/state claiming they working in housing man..good luck's the dog ass housing you loved so much and sending the only working coppers elsewhere, probably going to make another boss look good, hopefully it won't be a boss like they had in 765 when they left, hopefully she'll get what she deserves.......shit!

Yes, as long as you retire with 15 years or more and have "good standing" you can certify with the state.

The city put up a big stink and were taken out of the equation. The small loophole I see here is there are no checks and balances on what constitutes "good standing" since King Richard II walked away from everything.

Screw him. You retired, got a retirement star and ID, then go qualify and protect you and yours. And it's good anywhere in the U.S.A....but don't forget to requalify every year.

Where answers were right or wrong, not the "best answer", which could change. When you had to have some street smarts from generating arrests and keeping the peace. Not one of those paper generating pussys who don't work the street. Daley and the brass want to destroy the memory of what real police were. I did study, and I passed a lot of tests.
