In Case Anyone Was Counting

Today (Monday) marked 28 days without a single word from a single exempt member that naming a street after a person who called for the slaughter of police officers (and whose organization actually succeeded in killing quite a few officers) is WRONG.

Wednesday, 29 March, we get to see if an alderman keeps his word and can keep this atrocity from happening with a mere procedural maneuver.

Has the world gone completely mad?

who gives a fuck how does the naming of a street really affect you. if you let the naming of a street of some piece of dog shit shithead affect your life you've got to much time on your hands. if you were exempt would you call a press conference and talk out about it? you're gonna loose your very high paying job over some west side ass hole that WE KILLED almost 40 years ago?

Since most of the exempts are career service lieutenants, it's a huge bump in salary when they finally get that gold star. I know, because I was with an exempt on the day he got his first full fledged commander's check, and it was a HUGE increase in take home pay.

That being said, it's somewhat understandable that they don't want to jeopardize such a salary. It's easy for those of us with career service ratings to think otherwise, but when you're going to give up big bucks, you're not going to piss into the wind.

The person(s) that should have spoken up are those with tenure who have nothing to lose, i.e. the Superintendent, 1st Deputy and other Deputy Superintendents. They each have enough time to get an exempt pension and the time on the job. Worse case scenario is they speak up and are forced out.

Take the big man himself: Had he spoken up and pissed off the little man, what's the worst that could have happened? He would have left as Superintendent and with 75% of a large salary. He also would have had the added respect of his subordinates.

Politics run the show, politics caused the entire debacle in the first place, and politics appear to have come up with a solution.

The real pity is that the black community.....the real black community, the thousands of hard working men and women who aren't thugs and gangbangers, were silent. Had someone come up with the idea that Al Capone (for example) should be honored for his soup kitchens, I'd say bullshit!

And so it goes......(my apologies to Linda Ellerbee)

Youre correct that the Exempts have a huge bump in salary over a career Lieutenant. Plus a car and a chance at a gold braid pension.



a call girl makes a lot more than a waitress ina diner All she has to do to get that money is suck a few strange dicks and lick a few assholes

The question becomes, "can one look at ones self in the mirror for a few pieces of gold?'

Its all about self respect which neither the Exempts nor the Call girls seem to have

By the way, I wish the Dept would stick it in my ass and make me a Lieutenant

Don't know who Maria is, I know eventually she would have to prove she cannot work in any employment.

I have known coopers off for yrs. getting 75% until the city's Dr. by the way a Gynecologist says, oh yes you can go back as limited duty. Then another battle ensues unless she has already hurled that. Has this Maria floated thru the blogs before? :-)}

I just retired last week with 29+ years of service
If Maria is getting a duty disability pension (75%)then its a bigger travesty than Mrs John Thomas getting a line of duty death widow's pension (also a travesty)

We all might as well spend 10 years on the payroll ( half on the medical roll and doing nothing the other half and then get 75%

UNBELIEVEABLE

AND those who facilitated it belong in jail

exempt silence: word is, there are several expemts who were livid at the street sign proposal, who wanted to speak out, but the Hall just as much ordered their silence (for political reasons). One can speculate as to their reasons for following such an order (sacrificing their principles (?) for a salary/pension, etc.)...when did they stop being the police (if they ever were)?

this is the king of shit I'm talking about you people take this that serouis that you have find some obscure quote from albert Einstein.
Lets be serouis this is only a job, I go out every day and lock people up, I DO MY JOB, not because I'm a suck hole or ass kisser i do it because I have self respect. I'm not gonna sit here and say I know it all or have done it all but I've been on the job long enough to know not to take it that serious. There are people on this Blog that want bosses to stand up for something that They (the blogger) believes in. If I were a boss I would not say shit because Fred Hampton has no direct affect on my life again people remember that OUR PEOPLE, THE BOY's IN BLUE KILLED THIS SHIT HEEL and saved all of us a headache 35 years later because now we dont have to deal with the fucking assholes. The fucking shit heads that we deal with are so intent on killing one another with guns / drugs who gives a fuck let them continue their game of death.

Well, who will speak up about this? Oh wait, it can't be the officers that were killed at the hands of the Black Panthers, can it?

Unless we dig them up from the ground and they suddenly can speak.

But I'm sure with everything going on, I'm sure they could talk.

Oh yes, I found this at the library. It's called:

"OFF THE PIG" on VHS


From: The Black Panther
What's happening people? (FREE HUEY) Good evening, Good morning. I think it's about 12:00 right now. It's about 12:00 and if you look in the back of you, you will see Reagan's state building, with his state pigs observing the people. And, of course, if you look in front of you, you will see Nixon's U.S. federal building, with the pigs inside, observing the people. And if later on you decide to leave here and go on down Polk Street, you'll walk in front of pig mayor Alioto's office, and they'll be observing the people. Now I know you've heard a lot lately about what pig Mafioso, Moussili, Alioto, has had to say, (right on I know you've heard this pig with his ignorant backwards, minded butt sit up and say crazy things, like he wants to destroy the Black Panther Party. But the Black Panther Party, and black people, and Mexican-American people, and all people are saying there will always be Huey P. Newton, and a Black Panther Party, as long as there are black people living here in this city. (right on).

Pig mayor Alioto said that he wanted to destroy the Black Panther Party. Richard Nixon, from the United States White House, is saying that he wants to destroy the Black Panther Party, by lying to the people, (right on) and by not telling the truth; and the reason they're not telling the truth is 'cause they always told lies. Right on. They told lies about the people, trying to protect their own self-capitalist interests. In the papers this morning (and I want the papers to get ahold of this) they're saying or trying to imply that the Black Panther Party is "subversive." Well, this is all the Black Panther Party has to say to all those pigs in the power structure. The Black Panther Party, along with other members of the community are feeding 2,000 young brothers and sisters every morning (right on), if that's subversive, then damn it we're subversive. (More right on's). The Black Panther Party is going forth implement Free Health Clinics in the black community, and we hope the Mexican-Americans, and the Chinese-Americans and all the other people do the same thing -- and if Free Health Clinics are subversive then damnit, mayor Alioto, and pig Reagan and Nixon, damnit, we're subversive. (Right on).

We're saying that the Ten Point Platform and Program that our Minister of Defense Huey P. Newton put together, is in the process of being implemented. That if it had not been for Huey P. Newton we would not have people with an understanding that they got a right to use weapons to defend themselves against any pigs who attack them. (Right on.) We're saying that if it had not been for Huey P. Newton, there would not be any BREAKFAST FOR CHILDREN. (Right on.) If it had not been for Huey P. Newton COMMUNITY CONTROL OF POLICE would not be in the process of being implemented by the people. If it had not been for Huey P. Newton, FREE HEALTH CLINICS would not be in the process of being implemented in the black community. If it had not been for Huey P. Newton, the TEN POINT PLATFORM AND PROGRAM of the Black Panther Party would not begin to be implemented by the people. And not only black people, because the Chinese-American, the Red Guard, has copied the same Platform and Program, and they got a right to it. And the Indian-American organization named NARP has copied the same Ten Point Platform and Program of the Black Panther Party and they got a right to it. We're just waiting for this racism to break down when we see in the poor white Appalachians up in the mountains copy the same Ten Point Platform and Program and go forth to destroy the Nixons, the Reagans, and the pig Aliotos. (Right on.) When the Party says "Power to the People, " we ain't jiving a pound. We say Power To The People. And when the people say to Reagan, when the people say to Alioto, when the people say to pig Richard M. Nixon, that we want Huey P. Newton free, we're saying you bald headed pig punks better get out of the way (Right on.) because we're tired. And we saying you better let Huey go. They let that pig O'Brien, who killed Basket go, right on. You let him go on the very minute you allowed him in the street to murder our brothers. They let that other pig go who killed Brother Lindstrom out in Hunter's Point (right on). Wait a minute, the Young Men of [no text --ed.] And this damn bald-headed Mafioso, Alioto jumped up talking about (right on), wait a minute, the Young Men of Action are his boys. Aint he an ass-hole, shame. (Right on.) What we're saying is this. We're saying this here. We heard the brothers say in a press conference the brothers in Young Men of Action, they said in a press conference that they denounced pig mayor Alioto, and mayor Alioto is saying that that's his boys. But we're saying this here: the Panther Party aint mayor Alioto's boys. (laughter) We are the people's workers, and we're going to keep serving the people, everybody. I mean everybody. The man don't like it, but we gone show him. You got your Red Books, hold your Red Books up and tell the brothers where we getting some new ideology from. We're saying like Huey P. Newton said, "that we're going to follow the thoughts of Chairman Mao." We're saying we going . . . Panther Party standing up and proving through social practice that we're not racist, but proving that they in fact are the real racists. They have never liked the Black Panther Party and the people talk about "We want some community control of police." They have never respected Huey P. Newton. But we respect Huey P. Newton. We love Huey P. Newton. (Right on.) I say: We love Huey P. Newton (repeated). We love Eldridge Cleaver (repeated). We love Kathleen Cleaver. We love all our people. We love our people so much that if the pigs attack us, we gone defend ourselves rightfully with guns and force. (Right on.) We love the people (audience repeats) and we love the people so much that we gone say: I am a revolutionary and that's our message to pig Alioto and Richard M. Nixon's America. That you and FREE HUEY, (repeated). FREE HUEY. FREE HUEY.

Some Brothers are walking around with some buckets, some plastic buckets, they gone be asking for some donations for all the money that had to be put out, and we had to borrow it, to put this rally over, and so let's get it together, there some more speakers coming, sister Kathleen Cleaver is here, Eldridge Cleaver's wife, the Chief of Staff David Hilliard is here, we gone donate to the bucket, because are what, we say: I am a revolutionary. (Audience repeats each statement): FREE HUEY P. NEWTON. Down with the pigs. Down with all the pigs. Power to all the people. The collection is going on. Power to the people and thank you brothers and sisters. Right on. [applause]

AT WHAT POINT DO WE MAKE A STAND?

EXEMPTS WANTING TO STAND UP AGAINST THE STREET SIGN BUT "CITY HALL " ORDERED THEM TO SAY NOTHING?

CITY ALDERMAN WANTING TO HONOR A PERSON WHO ADVOCATED KILLING CHICAGO POLICE OFFICERS?

BUT DON'T SAY ANYTHING BECAUSE DALEY WILL GET UPSET AND DUMP YOU.

WITH LEADERS LIKE THESE WHO NEEDS ENEMIES.

THE VERY IDEA OF EXEMPTS STAYING QUIET ON THIS TOPIC IS REPREHENSIBLE, AND UNACCEPTABLE.
WHAT HAPPENED TO LEADERSHIP AND LOOKING OUT FOR YOUR MEN AND FIGHTING FOR THEM AND STANDING UP FOR THEM.

IS IT TOO MUCH TO EXPECT OUR GOLDSTARS TO TAKE A STAND AGAINST ELECTED ALDERMEN WANTING TO HONOR AN ADVOCATE FOR KILLING POLICE OFFICERS?

IF THE GOLDSTARS WILL NOT STAND UP FOR US AGAINST AN ADVOCATE FOR KILLING COPS THEN THEY NEVER WILL.

THIS WHOLE SIGN ISSUE SAYS ALOT ABOUT OUR ELECTED OFFICALS, BUT SPEAKS VOLUMES ABOUT OUR SO CALLED EXEMPT LEADERSHIP.

THE ENTIRE COMMAND STAFF OF THE CHICAGO POLICE DEPARTMENT IS UNWORTHY OF RESPECT, HONOR OR DIGNITY. THIER SILENCE IS DEFEANING TO OUR EARS.
THEY ARE AN EMBARASSMENT.

I AM ASHAMED OF WHAT THIS ORGANIZATION HAS BECOME.

SUPT. CLINE, IF YOU WILL NOT SPEAK UP FOR US NOW, THEN WHEN?
