Super Sheriff is On the Job!!

Right. Mike Sheehan caught an escaped prisoner. All by his lonesome. OK. Truth may just be stranger than fiction.

Channel 2; Channel 5; Channel 7; Times; Trib.

One of the candidates is at least as skeptical as we are, but we think if they were that desperate for good headlines, they'd let Dart grab someone instead of Sheehan, who isn't running for anything at all.

I got the bronze! Why not phase out jailguards and put Sheriff police in jail? Have civilians working in jail, like our lockups, why have sheriff police there are nomore unincorporated areas anyway? Think of money that could be saved and could increase guards in jail for same price? And yes im an ex jailguard that saw what went on there.....ps goto FOP lodge 9 they THINK they are the police.

Let's face it.

Democratic or Republican. Daley, Durbin, George Ryan, Kennedy, Kerry, both Clintons, even "Dubya", Sheehan and Dart.

They are all mealy-mouthed, lying assholes. Admit it.

Like me, you constantly find yourself voting for the LESSER of TWO EVILS!

Generally speaking, I loathe politicians. I have more respect for a crack ho!

11:15 has got a good point.

I'm neither a Democrat nor a Republican. I'm a conservative INDEPENDENT.

However, these days, in a forced choice situation, I'll take a Republican over ANY Democrat--local, state or national.

Dart is/was a good Democrat. He laid down on his sword for the party and now they're rewarding him with the Sheriff's office.

He's probably a great guy, but for one, I deeply resent when anyone is annointed to a political position. (Blago, Madigan....get my drift?)

That's the way it goes in Crook, I mean Cook County. To expect anything else at this time is not being reasonable.

Sorry to burst your bubble, but it will take a change in Illinois law to accomplish that.

When Ogilve was Sheriff, they changed the state law to divide the Sheriff's office into three branches: Police, Corrections and Court Services. In the smaller counties of Illinois, a Deputy Sheriff could work in the courts, jail or the street. Same title, same pay. In Cook County it's different. Until or unless the law is changed, you'll have the three branches.

We need stricter accountability and screening for DOC. And while I'm smoking wacky tobaccy, I may as well wish for a legitimate process for appointment to the Sheriff's Police. Anyone with a 3rd grade education or better knows the Sheriff's office is politically motivated on all fronts. It's politically motivated to get hired in court services or DOC, and it's definately politically motivated to become a sheriff's police. Until this changes, it will continue to be a cesspool.

These problems will continue until the jail staff is doubled...which will be never. Even a 50% increase in staff would help tremendously. But Stroger needs that money for more important things...just ask him.

There are good people working there, and shitty, gangbangers working there. JUST LIKE ON CPD!!! Imagine how much just ONE dirty jail guard could fuck up. It's mind boggling!

Anyone want to explain how the Cook Co. Government has escaped Federal review?!?!?!? Seems like it would be a no-brainer. Do you guys even realize how far into the City Government that Stroger reaches? Talk about final say in the merit promotion area...

Privatizing is not an option, and all of you who keep saying that it is have NO IDEA what you are talking about!!! No idea how you could possibly think that hiring a $10 an hour security guard would curb the problem?!?!?!?!?!?

Daley and Stroger: Neither will ever be voted OUT of office. They'll both be there until they are taken out in cuffs, or on a stretcher. Sucks, but it's true.

As much of a cockmunch as Blago is, I'd even bet he'll get re-elected. He sure as shit won't get my vote, but I'd put good good money on a Vegas bet that he'll win again...a million $ donation to ensure the marble heads keep his dumb ass in office. Democratic "machine" politics like only Illinois ( Cook County) could pull off!

Oh, I see. So every deputy is a piece of shit. Ignorance is bliss I guess.

If you really are CPD, I wouldn't throw stones, my man. I've worked as a deputy for 5 years and have been CPD for around 5 years now. I can tell you that the shit I've watched CPD guys pull off has made my head spin compared to anything I ever saw a deputy do on duty!

No comparison!

There are a lot of lazy deputy's, just like there are lazy cops, just like ther are lazy plumbers. There are a lot of hard working, proud deputy's, just like ther are hard working cops and plumbers.

Ogilve had the right idea and was followed by Joe Woods and ex-FBI boss who was the same suit size as Nixon. Woods had a sister, Rosmary who get Joe Nixon's old suits.

Joe could not succeed himself because of state law. Bernie Carey(another FBI agent)ran against Elrod and in a five month election photo-finish, Elrod was able to steal enogh votes to win. The law was changed and that total jaggoff, Elrod destroyed eight years of reform.

Cook County administration made a real shithouse to wallow in.

GREAT GRANDSTANDING JOB BY SHERIFF SHEAHAN!

and the killer part is that the local media was suckered in. P.T. Barnum was right "there's a sucker born every minute." or was it W.C. Fields?

and I see the CCSP apoligists are at it again, trying to blame the situation on understaffing and a "few" bad apples.

here's some food for thought...

Q: JUST HOW DID THE ESCAPEE GET OUT OF HANDCUFFS & LEG IRONS?

Q: WHY DID THEY HAVE A "MALE" GUARD WATCHING A FEMALE PRISONER?

Q: IS THE "SUPER SHERIFF SHEAHAN" REALLY A MANHUNTER / NEGOTIATOR?

Q: IS IT ME OR DOES THIS LATEST ESCAPEE LOOK SHALL WE SAY A LITTLE "MENTAL" ? AND SHE WAS TOLD TO JUST PLAY ALONG ON THE LITTLE STAGE PLAY FOR THE CAMERAS? AND DID THE CCSP PARADE HER AROUND BEING TAKEN BACK INTO CUSTODY? IF NOT WHY NOT?

Q: WITH ALL THE LATEST FOUL UPS, GOOFS, GAFFS, AND OTHER SIDE SHOW PERFORMANCES, WOULD'NT IT BE LOGICAL TO ASSUME THAT THEY WOULD SEND TWO GUARDS TO TRANSPORT A PRISONER TO THE HOSPITAL FOR "TREATMENT"?

Q: IS IT ME BUT ISN'T THE STORY COMING OUT OF THE JAILBREAK FIASCO IS THAT THE GUARD HELPED IN THE ESCAPE TO HELP REMUS GET ELECTED THE MOST UNBELIEVABLE STORY THAT PUT SIMPLY DEFIES ALL LOGIC AND IS THE MOST INPLAUSIBLE STORY EVER TOLD SINCE THE KENNEDY ASSASSINATION "MAGIC BULLET" THEORY AND THAT THE SHERIFF HIMSELF CAPTURES ESCAPEE?

Q: IS IT ME OR IS SOMEONE PISSING ON MY HEAD AND TELLING ME IT'S RAINING? IS OUR LOCAL MEDIA JUST THAT NAIVE? OR IS SADDAM'S FORMER PROPAGANDA MINISTER RUNNING THE SHOW?

"IF THIS WAS THE CHICAGO POLICE PULLING THIS SHIT THEY'D ALL BE SCREAMING FOR PHIL CLINE TO RESIGN AND DIGGING ALL OF OUR GRAVES!!"

Q: WHEN IS THE FED GONNA TAKE DOWN THE COOK COUNTY JAIL'S THREE RING CIRCUS?

SIDE NOTE : YOU'D BETTER CRACK THE WHIP ON THE "GLORY BOYS" IN T.R.U. AND S.O.S. TO SUPRESS OUR LATEST ESCALATING CRIME RATE, THAT THEY'RE TRYING TO BLAME ON THE WARM WEATHER, I HATE TO SEE WHAT THE CRIME RATES GOING TO BE LIKE IN JULY AND AUGUST. AND OUR MEDIA JACKELS JUST EAT THAT SHIT UP.

As I read in the paper....

Mr. Sheriff talked to escapee on the phone, and found out where she was....

Mr. Sheriff, who took an oath of office, and is responsible for the custody of persons remanded to him by the court....

IMMEDIATELY FULFILLED HIS OATH OF OFFICE AND GOT ON HIS RADIO/CELL PHONE AND ORDERED THE NEAREST POLICE OFFICER/SHERIFF TO RESPOND TO THAT LOCATION AN REGAIN CUSTODY OF THE PRISONER....

No, Mr. Sheriff, hot dogged it over there, and grabbed her himself....

Just like J. Edgar getting Alvin Karpis (I think)....

So Mr. Sheriff, next time there is an escape, and I am sure it is coming, please do not endanger the residents of Cook County by running over there to make the arrest....

We respond like dumb-asses because we are the police (doing our job) and not a scared jail guard playing police at the local McDonalds. Calling a 10-1 because the guy drinking in the parking lot gave the jail guard the dirty "I'll fuck you up look" and the jail guard running back inside calling for help. Until we get there and then the jail guard comes out acting all big, like he is going to fuck someone up. Then he wants to sign a complaint for trespassing. So jail guard, if you think you are the POLICE, you arrest the guy and process him yourself!

I know there are dog-ass coppers who wear the CPD uniform. I know there are slow districts in Chicago where some "suburbs" are busier. But all in all, we, CPD are the hardest working, bullshit absorbing, must live in the city, political influenced department around. Try working midnights in 007. Try working a rapid car in 011. Try working in 002, 003, 004, 005, 006, 008, 009, 010, 015, 025. But stay in 007 or 011 and compare that to your jail guards, county police, or coppers in the burbs.

I love it when all those other places roll their eyes when they hear a CPD copper say, "Chicago is the real police". If we are not, who the fuck is? Palos Hills? Darien? As fucked up Cicero is and all the shit their police put up with, they still have a few places to run and hide..relax..eat at a nice, clean place. Find me a nice place in 007 or 011...can you?

It appears you don't get it. I'll try once more.

I worked the suburbs before coming on the job here in Chicago, and yes, we deal with a whole hell of a lot more shit than most suburbs could ever hope to.

But that doesn't mean we walk on water. Suburban coppers don't deal with as much as we do, but they get their fair share of shit. And unfortunately, some of them die over it.

I can't stand prima donnas that think because they're city police, that their shit doesn't stink. I also can't stand that "real police" mentality. It's condescending and bullsht. Having been on both sides of the fence I don't think I'm anything special.

I've also dealt with feds more than I care to say. Most of them are all right, but a few of them think that federal jurisdiction gives them some special power. They're assholes...those kinds of feds.

Those of us in law enforcement, whether we're corrections, police, sheriff, state, or fed....we're just doing a job that needs to be done. This "I'm the real police, or I'm better than you" mentality is bullshit. Prima donnas can go fuck themselves.

Look at the entire picture, not just the city and the suburbs, but cops EVERYWHERE! We're all doing a job that needs to be done. Some of us have it better than others in terms of benefits, salary, perks, whatever. But not a one of us walks on water. If you think you do, then go fuck yourself!

I guess you can be proud that all of your agressive police work saved a whole lot of gang banging assholes from getting shot by other assholes. You should be so proud. I seen this for more than 38 years as a Chicago Policeman. Maybe you should get out to the Suburbs and see what their day to day is and take a look at their technology.

9:12, I got it the first time. The picture you are trying to paint is a jail guard or REAL suburban police departments (I do not consider Cicero, Maywood, Harvey suburbs) and CPD officers have the same job. We don't.

Yeah, we all have fancy lil uniforms, stars, guns..stuff like that. But our work place is much different...just look at the posts above.

The "38 year Chicago Vet." (ooooook!) says burbs invest money in up-to-date equipment. True. We are one of the busiest police departments in the world, yet...how many times we went out on the street without a working PDT? How many times we let go an offender because he gives a bullshit name and nothing we can do because our PDT's are not up-to-date? On top of all we deal with, we have shit like that to deal with.

Yes, we also have to deal with lazy supervisors. Everybody seems to know what the working conditions CPD has to deal with, yet everyone else feels they can relate.

We have "13,000" people on this job. That's more than most cities here. A lot of different attitudes, and that beat copper deals with all of um.

Aside the "fat lady bosses" and "being proud of saving gang bangers", working 6 days in a row makes us different, our equipment, or "clients", our partners, PPO's, shitty cars, gives us much more to put up with.

It is much more stressful here...plain and simple, than any other place. I do not see anything wrong with being proud of being able to endure the stress..on the street and station. To know I can put up with all the shit here, make me know for sure I can put up with anything in life. That's why CPD coppers are proud to say "Real police" (I wonder how many county guys, suburbanites or other wannabe's rolled their eyes!) :)

You make a good point about being proud of the "real police" and all those other arguments.

But imagine yourself a Harvey police officer for example. Harvey is a cesspool and faster than a lot of city districts. You deal in all the bullshit we do, and yet you work by yourself. Then imagine again your being told by some city copper that you're not the "real police." Imagine then how you'd have contempt for all the prima donnas who set themselves up as better than you. You'd be pissed too.

I've been on both sides of the fence, suburban and city. I know we have more experiences than suburban coppers do, but all of us are the police.

Have you ever dealt with a fed who thinks his shit doesn't stink because of his federal powers? I have, and they're prima donnas too, and they too can go fuck themselves.

Bottom line: it's a job, no matter where you work, and a job does not bestow special powers or abilities on you. Be proud of who you are, but don't think for a minute that you're above anyone else. Then you've become a prima donna.....and again, prima donnas can go fuck themselves!

Be safe.

I wish I was the "real police" then I could check boxes and and get away with writing UUW report narratives that are three sentences long.
