They're Back!

The Helicopter Unit that is. Using a chopper acquired from the Chicago Fire Department (a second one is hopefully on the way), this week sometime the Chicago Police Department will return to the skies for the first time since 1980.

Now, about those Air-to-Surface Mavericks we asked for...

UPDATE: One a lighter note, the Blackhawks started another losing streak last night. God, we wish Wirtz would sell the team already, but it's probably a tax write off at this point.

Ok, place your bets:

1. First district / unit to request the chopper

2. First district / unit to get denied use of the chopper

3. First district / unit to actually catch someone while utilizing the chopper

First

First unit to request:

TRU requesting the zone to have the helicopter find caars with expired plates and then ask them to use a heat sensor to see how many people are in the car so when there are two or three people they can have five cars and tne po's swarm in and then all of them hea into to station for a tvb.

First unit to get denied:

Any unit that probably really needs it looking for a shit head who is witnessed by a po with a gun but the bosses take 45 minutes to decide if it can be used cause they do not know if they can justify it farther up the command.

First unit to catch someone:

None, because the crown vic driving royals will see that some of their cars will needed to be taken away to pay for the gas that the program will be scrapped in two months.

Is Matt at flight school?

Will Dorothy get it to pull security at next year's party?

Is it a Chinook? We'll need the double rotors to fly Phil around.

Don't worry, SWAT's got it.

I hope Hespe is a better helicopter pilot than he is a copper.

The guy is totally incompetent and dishonest. He is number two on the pilot list.

Homeland Security gives the city millions of $$$ to buy a helo and fund the program. The Mayor takes the smallest and oldest helo the Fire Dept has owned for years and gives it to CPD. The Mayor pockets the money and buys more flowers for LSD.

What a fucken joke, we did not even get the Helo that the city just spent almost a million $$$ to have the flir installed on. Now you tell me why fire needs the flir???

How long will it be before baby "K" is in charge of the new swat "Sky boys" unit.

Jay Marvin, the liberal talkshow host on WLS, until fired last year, was always promoting a helicopter for the department.

When he used to have Hillard on the air, terry used to say he had better ways to spend money than a helicopter.

The heilicopter will only last as long as the money flows from the Feds. Then it will be scrapped. Who cares who flies it.

It will probably do double duty to water and fertilize all the trees the mayor planted.

The helo the department got from CFD is the one that has been used for law enforcement purposes all along; I've flown in that particular helo with the CFD guys, and can tell you that it is exceptionally well maintained and with the addition of a FLIR and larger night sun, will be just what we need. The new bird is on order, and will have more bells and whistles expressly for the LE mission. One thing that the helos allow the department to do is draft a true no chase policy

Unless the spelling is so atrocious (is that spelled correctly?) that you cannot understand what's being said, would the spellcheck police please let small typos go through? Thanx

ooops, did I just mispell again? and again?

Re: FilLmore

I'm not the spelling police. Excuse what you may perceive as nitpicking. Being a very proud alumnus of the old FILLMORE District, I have considerable respect for my brothers that worked that most violent of assignments during the most tumultuous era in the City's history. While it may sound corny to some, FILLMORE veterans would understand. By the way, I submit that the correct pronunciation is "FILL-mo".

Best wishes.

"WHY DONT YOU BIG MOUTH CUNTS...TALK YOUR BIG TALK FACE TO FACE"

I'd love to talk shit to your face, but I'm busy doing police work.

"... PUNK ASS BITCHES.LET ME FIND OUT WHO YOU ARE AND THEN WELL SEE HOW TOUGH...."

Be my guest and find out! Don't know how? Ask daddy, I'm sure he knows somebody who does.

Be careful what you ask for, brother. Clout means very little when you are standing toe-to-toe against a guy who knows he will be in blue until he retires or gets fired. Every district has at least one guy (w/o clout) that will chew up your best.
You exist to help us when needed. You are the support cast. You cum when we call you, to assist the working police.
Now go relax, pass out pretty pictures of yourself in pretty clothes holding pretty guns to the pretty girls. Enjoy the spot daddy got you, and shut the fuck up. Remember who you work for.

your just jealous that your cry baby "im the real police" ass cant meet the standards to get in to a unit like swat! standards i mean physical & firearms! no scholarships there. in fact about 99% of the team has been in sos for a good amount of time. & did u forget what unit recovers more guns in the entire city??? they all are the real police! been there done that. they all have more than 2yrs on the job, unlike most of the tough guys running around the districts. wanna be the real police, u dont need clout to get to sos anymore, go there and back up your talk. then try out for swat. if u can hack it. if not continue to be the real police, im sure your in a really fast district. but when you and the other tough guy, real police need help, maybe you can handle it yourself, & maybe not.

hahaha! thats funny. you need a slang term for your female body part to describe a unit that maybe one day will save your stupid ass!!!!!!!!

that is only if you come out from behind the desk you hide behind!

oh & just so you know, that SWAT team doesnt train or practice at the academy!!!! so get your facts straight!!!!!!!!!!

that was probably the tactical training unit. and i wont even comment on those guys.
