Again - Can You Define "Good" Heroin?

Another batch of "bad" heroin turned up on the west side today (Channel 5 and Channel 7). Ambulances were called when 7 junkies were found unconscious near the scene of a free giveaway. At times like this, we can only say one thing:

HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!

Man, are we callous or what? Seriously, we would gladly remove dead bodies from the west side for a month if it cut down on the junkie population. HEROIN IS POISON! These people are voluntarily putting POISON in their bodies, placing enormous stresses on our already overburdened health care system, eating up monetary resources better spent elsewhere, and contributing to a skyrocketing property crime rate. Who cares if they kill themselves faster?

This is the second batch of "bad" heroin this week as we heard the 011th District had a bunch turn up near Adams and Cicero and about the fourth or fifth incident in the past 12 months. Maybe someone is TRYING to kill junkies? Just a thought.

Amen SCC. And I would do anything not to escalate the situation if I were assigned, though it seems like it would be hard for an ambulance crew not to call for additional ambulances when numerous "people" (junkies) are lying around comatose in cars, on the sidewalk and in the backyard. So this one it seems like it was hard not to escalate quickly.

But the last 3 or 4 where a "pattern" was noticed by some bright eyed PO, dick or supervisor? Keep those thoughts to yourself and let the situation play out. 100 or 200 dead junkies in a week might send a powerful message to people not to put the freakin needle in the arm the first time.

Speaking of junkies, I'm a smoker. If any of you ever catch your kid with that first cigarette, I promise this is the ONE thing that warrants a beating or smack. You will all do very well by your kids to do everything possible to ensure they don't start this filthy habit.

to: 12:51:42 am....I have never smoked a cigarette, but I have lost a dad and father-in-law to lung cancer. Presently, I have a mother-in-law fighting lung cancer (called smokers' disease by the docs, even thought she stopped smoking 20 years ago). Smoking (in my view) is a nasty, debilitating, and cancer causing behavior. I hope that anyone who smokes can stop....

I worked in Fillmore back in the early 90's when those two junkies od'd and died right in front of the station in their company van. Somebody wrote a parking ticket on it and didn't notice the two dead guys hunched over (one with a needle still in his arm) for a couple of hours.

Nice.

My TV debut was carrying the two dead guys out of the van and into the squadrol. And yes, I smiled for the camera. :-)

Computer system to track Chicago cops' performance

April 15, 2006

BY ANDREW HERRMANN Staff Reporter

Chicago cops will come under closer scrutiny under a new department plan announced Friday, but officials said that the goal is not to punish officers.

A new computer system will track a number of job performance numbers -- including officers' sick days, citizen complaints and arrest figures -- and flag supervisors to problems, Police Supt. Philip J. Cline said at police headquarters.

Cline said warnings will not trigger disciplinary actions but instead what he called "intervention," which might include counseling or additional training.

"The idea is to correct behavior before it becomes a disciplinary issue," said Cline.

The system will also help set benchmarks for successful performance, he added. Good numbers by "high achievers" could be used for better assignments, he said.

While the department already logs performance and complaint data, it is not done in a coordinated way, he said.

Cline said he is working "hand-in-hand" with police unions on the plan, called the Personnel Performance System.

"It takes us six months to train a cop. For us to just cavalierly try to get rid of a cop, we'd be much better off, with the investment we have in them, to correct behavior and do it with early intervention," said Cline.

As an example, by analyzing days an officer calls in sick, the department might, after an investigation, discover that the officer has day care problems or a sick parent, he said.

Union: 'Could be beneficial'



The system could also be used to define arrest or complaint averages. "If the average is one complaint and a guy has five, that's a red flag," said Cline.

The department has been looking at similar programs in other cities.

Mark Donohue, president of the Fraternal Order of Police, which represents 11,600 officers, was warm to the idea, as long as it is not used to build a case for dismissal.

"This is something that could be beneficial to the officer, not only in his professional life but in his personal life," said Donohue.

No timetable has been set for launching the new system.

See todays Slum-Times..It looks as if performance appraisals are back after a 3 or 4 year absence.

Cline said P.O.'s will now be evaluated on things such as how many times one calls in sick, etc.; How many Citizen complaints are lodged against officer; How many jobs they handled on a day; number of arrests, etc.

It will tracked by computer.

After the officers are identified they will be counseled and blah,blah,blah!

It's ALL good heroin (hair-on) when they slangin' it to those junkies.

"Is it good? Shhhhhhheeeeeeeee, this is fire man!!!!! Now, you got the money?"

Well, I think the kid selling Kool Aid in front of 35 & Michigan didn't go through the correct bidding process. That menas he's a sip away from being the focus of a BIG investigation: The Hired Kool Aid Stand Scandel. Then what will everyone do standing around with their officiaal Kool Aid man mini pitures?....

Do that shit and I want residency gone! If it was gone I wouldn't have to pay more to send my kids to private school. If I don't have to pay for private school then I don't have to work 2 side jobs. If I don't have to work 2 side jobs, I'd be a more productive officer.

If you watched the 10 PM news story on the heroin in the 010th District, you may have caught a glimpse of the flyer which was created and passed out by the police. It stated in 30 font and bold letters "If someone tries to give you free Heroin, DON'T EXCEPT IT" EXCEPT????? Are you sure that shouldn't have said ACCEPT???? How many supervisors saw that flyer and didn't see a problem there?

Gee, I wonder how one might factor into a "performance appraisal" the falsifying of an affidavit for a search warrant? How might one factor into a performance appraisal invoking the fifth amendment right against self-incrimination during a criminal proceeding? The police board should have listened to those former US Attorneys when selecting a new superintendent.

I thought the same thing.

Pretty fucking embarassing.

You illiterate non-spelling fucks on this blog may not think it's a big deal, but poor spelling for everyone to see on the evening news is one of the many reasons the public views us as dumb fuck brutes!

Make a slight effort at improving your speaking and writing skills. It makes a big difference.

The ironic thing is that the biggest critics of the ebonic speaking peeps, can't write a simple and coherent paragraph either.

So now my activity is going to be evaluated. I gots a question about that.
What about units that do long term investigations and maybe make only 10 arrests in 6 months? How are they going to get evaluated? I personally haven't made an arrest in over 5 years. I haven't written a mover for longer than that. My "job" requires other enforcement actions. So how am I evaluated? Do I get made a "personnel concern" again because I don't make arrests or write movers?
I shouldn't worry though, I know this department has it all figured out.

10 years to go. It keeps looking farther and farther away.

Maybe this new system is because of people like you! Do some work. Lock up a drinker or a one bagger or some thing. The citizens demand more for their money! They can't have $70,000 work of "long term" "enforcement". Damnit we want another shiney Jelly Bean! More potted plants in the middle of Halsted and Roosevelt so people can's turn left.

This really isn't a new problem. They always had this problem with evals. How do you evaluate a guy assigned to the traffic car, or the mall, or a special attention car (an *07R, *06D)? So really nothing new there. Just the same old problems using different techniques.

I know it may be hard for a supercop like you to understand, but one long term investigation can do more "good" than a hundred drinkers and a thousand one baggers. Get your head out of your ass...

Long term doesn't mean one tour of duty, holding yourself down on a ficticous traffic stop so you can put on a hoodie and hide in a bush looking for some mope with a jab!!!

Time for O'Grady to find another inside job. Tracking activity couldn't accurately show his contribution to this department. This man has locked up almost 15 people over the years. Not to mention the dozens of parking tickets he's written since the early 90's. Maybe he could deliver heroin pass-out flyers to the public? I'm sure there are a lot of junkies hanging out at Diversey & Lake Shore Drive.

You want meth? Hit any gay bar in boys town! It has pretty much stayed in 19, 23 and 20 for the last couple of years but it is starting to spread to the south and west sides.

At least there won't be jokes about gay crack dealers when this hits the rest of the city.
