Jail Guards Blame Bosses

Inmates finger guards, guards finger bosses, bosses will blame the county government. Soon, no one will be to blame any more and we can all get on with our lives paying outrageous taxes to a corrupt and outdated political entity.

We can hardly wait!

Yes lets play the blame game. Seeing that a bunch of crooked guards let six mules out. Amazing. All of the guards should be stripped and they should stop hiring on a who you blow and who you know basis. That might be too much of a concept though.

Great story on Fox news about Shani Davis and his racial profiling lawsuit against the CPD. His lawyer is beefing that that we won't change our profiling policies (offer enough money). Did I miss the order about harassing black speed skaters?

Do us a favor you king sized dog-ass, QUIT, just show up in your watch commanders office, and fill out the PAR-form, or is that too much paperwork for you? Want someone to do that for you too? Stop pawning off YOUR jobs on other people! As a parting gift to you, I'm offering these words of wisdom: "What comes around, goes around!"

On the topic of guards,Can anyone tell me if while assigned a prisoner/guard detail at a hospital can the w/c or sgt. split partners up and assign only one p.o. to guard the prisoner and order his partner back on the street? Isn't that a safetyissue grievance and a violation of our contract?

The untold story of the jailbreak at Cook County Jail is that they took anywhere from a half hour to an hour to call the Chicago Police. If they call 911 immediately we might have had a chance at catching them. How 6 felons can escape into an urban area, and the authorities in charge don't call the local police immediately is not only negligent it's criminal.

The WC can assign 1 PO to guard a prisoner, but the other PO does not have to work 99 if he/she does not want to. It is a safety grievance. Our problem is that too many officers work 99 and do not demand a partner on 3rd and 1st watch. Even if you don't like that partner, they may save your life, because we all know how long it takes for a backup unit to arrive. Sometimes never.

The police wives association worked too hard back in the early seventies (after Tony Wenzel was killed on LSD-1 man traffic stop), to let the two man unit fade away.

It may not seem like much, but that extra pair of hands from your partner, could save your butt until backup arrives!

The lack of integrity or just pure criminal behavior on the part of the guards can be attributed to affirmative action, minority hiring quotas, etc...... The shitbirds that work at county have been offered no incentive to alter the gang/brother/fuck-the-man mentality by those who are ultimately responsible, so why would they?

In case you were in a coma last week, scarecrow sums up the news that's fit to discuss: (WARNING: Beverage spew warning.)
1. Cheney shot a man in the face and heart, but he looks pretty good on the other side.

2. Pat Roberts found a copy of the Constitution and showed it to Bush. They are both studying it.

3. The Anti-Patriot Act will become law, because it doesn't matter what the law says anymore.

4. Cheney thinks he has the authority to declassify something that the President classifies. But the the number of conflicts this has created is still classified.

4. Libby wants Fitz to get Bush to disclose classified all the intelligence information Bush never read, to prove he (Libby) was also confused, but Cheney may not agree.

5. And Condi thinks she can promote democracy in Iran by buying dissidents, which will make them popular; Rumsy will keep them informed by spending more on DoD propaganda.

6. New York Republican Congressman Peter King has insisted the administration revisit its approval of the transfer of control of U.S. ports to "a company coming out of a country where al Qaeda has such a strong presence," and which could be easily infiltrated by the terrorist network. Democratic Senators Hillary Clinton of New York and Bob Menendez of New Jersey plan to hold hearings on the issue next week, and are seeking legislation banning companies controlled by foreign governments from buying U.S. port facilities. And the President has threatened veto if a measure was to pass.

Everything's under control though. Sleep restfully the Republicans are on the job.



All of this is true.

Anyone who believes any bullshit about Stroger and Sheehan being enemies is nuts. Those two are lead by Daley and tow the party line. They're about as much as enemies as Hillary Clinton and Howard Dean. Sheehan gets his Police force that doesn't have a job and Stroger gets a bunch of homies on the payroll that aren't needed. Daley of course gets to call the shots for everything (well excluding the fact that he's a bumbling idiot, so I guess you can say Joyce and Dignan call the shots through Daley). The amazing thing is that the county has the highest tax rate in the nation to pay for this and hardly anyone complains.

Bush backs Dubai port deal, vows veto
Lawmakers seek more thorough look at takeover by UAE firm

Tuesday, February 21, 2006; Posted: 4:39 p.m. EST (21:39 GMT)

WASHINGTON (CNN) -- President Bush on Tuesday strongly defended a deal that would let a United Arab Emirates-based company run six major U.S. seaports, telling reporters that he would veto any bill to hold up the agreement.

Bush, who has yet to veto a bill during his administration, warned that the United States is sending "mixed signals" by attacking a Middle Eastern company after the American ports had been run by a British firm for several years.

Lawmakers who have called for the deal to be blocked need to "step up and explain why a Middle Eastern company is held to a different standard," he said.

I'm not so sure about Claypool. He used to be a Daley guy. He does talk a good game though. If he was a real reformer he would be blasting Sheehan almost as much as he blasts Stroger. The fact that the Cook county police escape criticism isn't good. What do they do except go to cicero twice a year to arrest prostitutes and have a SWAT team? How many of them are there? In the mean time Sheehan lets the county jail go down the toliet. Well you know what I mean.

I could see the permanent foot post you would get in the Lowe building. Get a life fool. We are short as it is. Maybe if you got the balls to talk to your sgt like we did he or she will actually rotate cars in and out so you aren't stuck there all night. And if your dumbass shackled and cuffed each of the mules arms and legs to the bed it wouldn't be that much of a safety issue if you are 99. If he needs to pee let them insert a tube. if he has to crap call a partner in for an assist. I know it sounds like common sense, but I know that is what many lack.

OFF TOPIC: BUT MORE B.S. FROM COMMUNITY ACTIVISTS,NORTHWESTERN UNIVERSITY, AND MINORITY CITIZENS!


I was at today's F.O.P. meeting where Mr. Donahue mentioned that the results of the infamous (traffic stop statistical study)AKA/Northwestern U. CPD racial profiling program are in and so far essentially vindicate us (CPD) of profiling..Good news, right?

WRONG! It appears that the community groups and activist's don't like the results.(When it started, these people where claiming that racial profiling in Chicago was running rampant. They stated publically that they expected 30% or higher for the percentage of profiling that they believe to be occurring)

Guess what?.. a year or so later the results are about 1% ,statistically insignificant. The F.O.P. told the city in essence, you see, our officers are fairly enforcing the laws and not profiling.

The study was supposed to last through 2007.(Where officers attach the sticker on the back of the citation, or fill out a green study card if no citation is written)

WELL, THE SAME PEOPLE THAT ENACTED THIS CRAP ARE NOW UNHAPPY WITH THE RESULTS. "OH MY, HOW CAN THIS BE? THERE HAS TO BE RACIAL PROFILING" (Mocking tone of voice)

So now they are attempting to change the State/City legislation TO CONTINUE THE PROGRAM IN PERPETUITY!(That means endless or indefinately..AS IN FOREVER)

What a bunch of shit! Time to get out of patrol!

What makes me angry is that when this started, the position of most police officers toward the critics was "we don't racially profile, we criminal profile"

I've have never racially profiled in my career. I am white, and honestly have given so many breaks to black motorists over the span of my career, that it makes me sick.

Yet, the media will continually run anti-police stories without any scientific evidence but only "anecdotal stories" from the same DISENFRANCHISED GROUPS about how my cousin, or babies momma was "pulled over for no reason" ("excuse me MR or MRS. no license, no city sticker, no insurance, back bumper held on with rope"..you get the picture)

Now they have their scientific evidence and they don't like the results (1 % NOT the 30-35%) they were hoping for, so let's make it permanent..WAY TO FUCK THE HARD WORKING POLICE OFFICERS OF THIS CITY INTO WASTING MORE TIME ON BULL-SHIT!

IF only the city spent this much time trying to root out corruption or getting 27th ward aldercreature Walter Burnett to fix his building code violations or pay his housing court fines instead of messing with CPD..this city's citizens would be better off!

Sorry about the length..but I thought you all should know. Plus, I just had to vent a little bit!

Thanks

I remember when I was a new guy, back in the day when I would get stuck w/ a prisoner detail. Sometimes I would be there for hours. I would ask for a relief and get one.

I always rotate guys on prisoner details because I think its the way I would want to be treated. But never, ever , ever have I been requested or a Lt. requested for a prisoner relief.

I agree. Most of us that have been in the military and have served this country proudly appreciate this job more. I remember getting treated like shit, 26 mile road march w/ a 65 pound rucksack on my back, w/ little or no sleep and hungry--- and never complained once.(for a take home pay of $900 a month) Yes, it builds character and professionalism -something some of our colleagues don't have.
Our men and women out there in Iraq or Afghanistan don't complain they just shut up and do their job.
For me , I love this job- I didn't become a police officer to work the desk and hide from the streets --w/ only a few years on-- those spots should be reserved for the old timers that paid their dues or those officers that are are legitimately/medically unable to work the streets. I love this job--for the 8 hours that I work it ( the rest of my 16hours, I take of my uniform , come home, and be a family man) and wouldn't trade it for anything.I cannot stand whiners- IF YOU DON'T LIKE THIS JOB FIND ANOTHER ONE- let others who deserve it and are willing to do police work have it.It sucks being in a Beat car for 8hrs felling bitter and miserable. There a lot more positive things out there quit bitching!

Wow, I started something positive for once. As I said I was in the Marines, I remember my take home pay being 600 a month. I love this job as I stated b4. As far as the 25 year vet, and the one that posted above. I would work with either of you anytime...granted I would work with anyone no matter what. But this job is so much more fun when there are 2 to contribute to the work. Plus the day goes by so much faster when you aren't doggin it or bitchin all night either. Like I said I am a 3 year wonder and when I first hit the streets, full of the same piss and vinegar I do now, I remeber going to jobs in wolf packs with the other guys that liked to work. Now most of them guys have gone upstairs or off to some of the specialized units. Now I hear things on the air that I never heard of like, "It's not on my beat" or "I was just going to ask for a personal" or any other dumb arsed excuse. It gives those out there both young and old, white, black, hispanic, or whatever race you hail from, female, male, whatever. It gives those officers a bad name. But I will still go out there, I will still handle my jobs, I will still get laughed at by the vets (for some of the dumb shit I do) and I will still get up brush it all off and carry on and laugh with them. I couldn't imagine a better job. And just to think...with all the bitching that goes on about this and that, no matter how little or how much you do we actually get paid for this stuff.

Don't let these whiners get you down. This is a great job and I can guarantee you that if you don't let these guys get to you, you will be having just as much fun 25 years from now as you are today. Just go out everyday, hit the streets and do what you think is right. Constructive criticisim from some of the old timers is always welcome as long as it's meant for you to learn from and not put you down or make you feel stupid. Do the job in such a manner so that you may look yourself in the mirror each day and be satisfied that you did the best you could do. Wear the uniform with pride just as you did when you were in the Corp.Be proud to say that your a Chicago Police Officer. At times that may prove to be difficult but if you do the best you can you can hold your head high. My outlook may be a little rosey but then again I've had the honor of working with some of the best people this world has to offer which has made my time here fly by. Good luck.

The last few post were great. This is one of the best jobs in the world. Where else can you go to work, laugh for 8 hrs and get paid to do it. I still love this job after 20 years and except for a few road bumps have no complaints.

Thank god people still enjoy this job very refreshing. And for the guy with 3 years on keep the postive outlook. Enjoy every day and go home safe.

As for the dogs,whiners and deadwood try and find another job that pays you as well as this job. If you dont like it quit and go to the private sector. Im sure you will be unemployed within weeks with the negative atitude you carry around.

Stay safe boy and girls. Remeber we are all "blue" and that does include the supervisors.
