What We Found in our E-Mail
From a reader who was kind enough to forward us his DEPARTMENT e-mail -
- Chicago Police Officer Al O'Connor has been nominated for the Americas Most Wanted- All Star Award.He is asking for your assistance by voting for him in this event by visiting and voting for him at this site.Please do not respond to this email. Sent per the authority of the Bureau of Patrol.
It's addressed to EVERYONE and it even has the link in it that WE posted back on 14 April. We're trying to decide which is the most shocking:
- The fact that someone high up in the Bureau of Patrol might be reading the blog and is stealing our material.
- The fact that this appears to be a little bit of misuse of Department authorized e-mail.
- The fact that someone is willing to e-mail this to every single member and boss with a Department e-mail or Blackberry, AND WE STILL CAN'T GET A SINGLE BOSS to say that awarding a street sign to a convicted felon who advocated killing police officers is WRONG (by boss we mean exempt and we mean publically for the media).
