023 District Follies

OK, what the hell is going on in 023? What is this "waiver" that a certain captain was trying to get PO's to sign? What was contained in the waiver that a bunch of people are alluding to about an abrogation of the contract? This sounds like quite a story - no doubt similar to that "quota" memo that was floating around that other northside district signed off on by a Watch Commander, Commander and Deputy Chief.

Where do they come up with these people that just think a legal document (a contract) is so much toilet paper? Oh wait, it must be the "merit" system!

What District is both the 3rd Watch Captain and the DC being called down for a MAJOR contract violation hearing?

5/10/2006 11:49:10 PM

Stashy says

Isn't that 3rd Watch in the 023rd District where the Captain tried to force all the personnel to sign a waiver of their contract rights so that he could abuse them any way he wants. Where the hell is the news coverage on this????

Hey, newsies, write about some Captain deciding he is going to renegotiate a union contract directly with the poor souls under his command. What a fucking tool!!

Or would "asshat" be more appropriate here?

Anyway, I hope they bust this guy to Lieutenant and dump his ass way the fuck far south. 006? 005?Anyone?

This guy now out ranks his father who retired as a Lieutenant. The father always wore latex gloves because he was scared of catching something. He use to wash his hands 2 to 3 time a hour. Mental must run in the family.

I imagine its the old to do about a Lt. that made Capt. and hasn't been in a patrol for a bunch of years. Now he is micro-managing police officers instead of the do-nothings down at HQ. If its a contract issue the union might want to look into it. Typical of Capts these days, they don't know how to lead men.

There should be a requirement that in order to make capt you had to have worked in patrol the 3 years prior to being made. From there then you should also make a requirement in order to make Det. you must have made an arrest, maybe even so far to have made a non-narcotic felony arrest, in the year preceding your appointment to Det. I know its a bit steep but to me that makes sense. I know of a Det. off the first list that hadn't made an arrest in the 3 years prior to being appointed Det. I'd love for her to show up on my Robbery or Burglary pinch and tell me how its done. HA. Just had to rant a bit.

I said it on a previous post, its unfortunate to see someone who appeared to have it all together screw up. I thought Lemmer was an attorney as well. Maybe the odor of amyl-nitrate wafting out of the fruit bars and into the station took its toll.

Back in 1998 I was doing some time at Call Back. There was a chick who made Detective out of there that had been there for NINE FUCKING YEARS! Not as good as when I made Detective in 2000 and the law instructor (Mike Keehan) asked, "who doesn't know how to fill out a Felony 101"? Half the class raised their hands. The rest of us got a long lunch.

Off Topic, I apologize,

Today I was approached to purchase a ticket for a benefit for a "Copper" getting "30" for "Bullshit".

Well it may have been "Bullshit" that he is doing THIS "30" for, but from what I have been told the "Copper" has another "30 pending" coming down the pipe.

The second "30" comes from an incident where he took AKA STOLE several thousand dollars from a benefit held for the daughter of a deceased police officer, who was killed in the line of duty in 1995.

I believe the "Copper" still works in 15.

So if you are selling tickets for this JAGLIPS, Stop.

If you are considering buying a ticket for this ASSHAT, Do Not.

If he tries explaining to you what he did, you decide if you want to listen to his bullshit.

If anyone has further information, please advise.

I wish Seiser could have his way with this POS.

Ya, ya we know. The only standard on this job is if your in patrol you have to follow some sort of uniform/dress code and answer your 911 calls.
So what. This job is easy and there is no evaluation (I don't consider the political hacks investigating medical abusers or people who have to many C.R. numbers an evaluation, they won't investigate people that are connected). You have a medical system that is set up for abuse if a boss fucks with you. Like a certain officer who used to abuse the medical and when the bosses tried fucking with him he all of a sudden had an IOD incident and disappeared for a year(still collected a pay check though). The bosses don't fuck with him anymore. Believe me there is one of those stories in every district.
So incompetents move up. You want professionalism go to New York. I'm staying in Chicago. I only work when it amuses me or the rare times I might actually help someone who's not a shithead (very rear since it's always shitheads who want and need the police). The only other job in the world with less accountability is the fire department.
So if you wanted a professional organization the feds, the suburbs, the military, state police, corporate America, the Boy Scouts, they're all hiring.
You guys must be the same guys who are in shock that Daley has a machine.

if p.o. walter wrote a dui to a coppers family member, or even a gold star family member, it was probably deserved. i personally don't write dui's, but it is a necessary task. sometimes when police or their family members get stopped for possible dui, are they discrete about it ?? no, they make it a point to holler," my (take your pick) is the police and you can't do this. what is the p.o. supposed to do ? why should the policeman or police woman have to take some drunken fool's abuse in front of many civilian non-police affiliated persons who are witnessing the whole situation unfold? not to dismiss the point that the arrestee had a family member killed, if he was this night and has a history of getting bombed and acting like a complete asshole and using his brothers name to get out of trouble, shame on him. but, i'm sure that anyone reading this post was not there to see his actions, so how can you judge the p.o. on his actions without hearing all of the facts. if you are the police or the family of the police, keep your mouth shut and show a little respect. you'd be surprised how far that goes. to the guy that said to tell p.o. walter to his face, you are correct. this man is bigger than many pro athletes, but fortunately for the anonymous guy that wants to slam him, if you did get the balls to sign your name to your post, i'm sure as a favor, he would beat you into unconsiousness quickly so the rest won't hurt as bad. but seriously, i know p.o. walter. and he wouldn't do anything like is posted here unless he was given no other choice. just ask the sergeant from 023 who got alot less than what he deserved when stopped by p.o. walter. anyone can slam another copper anonymously for what they feel is a sandbag job, but more times than not, when all of the facts are heard, the police were left with no other option. be safe all. as for not backing someone else up on a stop... how ignorant are you ? we are the only ones who will protect each other. all of us have backed up p.o.'s who were supposedly not worth a lick, but we all have families to go home to. just stop and wait if you don't want to get out of the car, but we can't get to the point to where we don't back each other up...dickhead. to the poster at 11:44 p.m. if you are so bad, don't ask the guys from 019 what they are gonna do...go take care of business with him on your own. thought so, pussy.

07:46........didn't know that, but it's not surprising. I mean, since when does integrity, professionalism, experience, and character (as opposed to race, gender, family connections, political clout, etc.) factor into promotion and assignment, particularly with the exempts? Just wondering...when the dept. posts/lists their managers/personnel on their website, wouldn't it be a good idea to also list their connection/clout, i.e., Dept. Supt. Joe Blow, xxx years with the CPD, P.O. here, Det. there, etc., cousin of so and so, married to so and so, member of the xxth ward organization, sponsored by City Hall, "merit" this or that (you gotta love that merit label, that might qualify as the scam of all time).....

ATTENTION ALL YOUNG P/O'S, Nobody can have you sign a waiver of any part or section of the contract. This little trick was tried before and failed, thank God. You cannot sign away your rights or try to only abide by parts of the contract, or have only certain units work for straight time, etc.

A certain Sgt. tried that in Loop Traffic back in 1991 and had his ass chewed away. He wanted all the more senior officers to sign waivers so that everyone would get a turn to work overtime when details came up and avoid the seniority list where they start at the top every time as per the contract.

He even tried to rig the FOP unit rep election and failed.

Thank you Sheila Burke (past FOP secretary) for the Sgt. Santa Letter in which the same Sgt. tried to let everyone work O.T. but one P/O who the Sgt. did not like. P/O filed a grievance, and after several months was awarded quite a tidy sum of hours that he did not even have to work for.

And again the same Sgt. had a sexual harrassment suit filed against him and was finally caught by IAD doing exactly what he was accused of and was let off easy (resign or get fired and maybe lose your pension and go to jail).
He retired the next day.

But all of his superiors thought he was a Stellar Leader, until he got caught.

So what does all this mean?

You cannot pick the parts of the contract that you want to work under or change the terms or language to fit your personal need. It may not be the best contract but it's a hell of a lot better than if the City ran it with a hearty handshake!

P.S. Hey FootMan, I hope you got a good Deal (or no deal) cause someone might take it away from you, with more seniority!

His name is Thomas J. Lemmer former Acting Commander of Research and Development.
He was sooooo hated there but had too much juice to dump they promoted him out of R&D to Captain 3rd Watch 023. He sits at his desk in the WC office w/ 2 cell phones, 1 personal laptop, Desk Computer PC and PDT going at the same time. He actually has created an in district rating system he utilizes to determine officers days off for Comp Time, BFD etc...and work assignments. He has actually denied officers Time Due but tells them if they use a BFD or personal day they can have off (manpower not being an issue). He walks around the station quoting military leaders regarding leadership and ending his Roll Calls with "ATTACK!!!"
He tried to get an officer put into the Behavioral Alert System for too much time off and on the Medical for the past year. He wrote a request for this officer to be placed into the Behavioral Alert System and wanted a Lieutenant to write a To/From concurring w/ his opinion. This Lieutenant wrote a To/From but DID NOT CONCUR w/ Lemmer. Capt. Lemmer went nuts, and demanded to know why? When the Lieutenant said that the officer was already in treatment for the past month for an ongoing terminal ailment Lemmer shrunk to the size of a mouse. When one officers family member died in a foriegn country, this officer wanted DIF upon the body re-entering the States, but this would take up to a week due to Customs and all the bureaucracy. Lemmer denied this officer DIF because the Contract says it starts when the death occurs even though this coppers relative was 10,000 miles away.. This officer had to use 4 days of Comp time to attend the Wake , Funeral etc....
Now Lemmer has his NEW NAZI Sgt.'s on third Watch to promote his vision of effieciency. You should have seen him the other day when Vacancies were announced the day prior. They ran out of PAR Forms. I can't wait to bid the fuck out.

The pussy didn't believe we just left and sent his bitch sergeant (Forget his name, but another brand new asshole) and we more or less told him to get fucked, drove into 007 and told him to get on the horn and see when we signed out.. that if he had a problem he needed to talk to us not beat around the bush with his spaz messenger.

Three Points...

1. The 11:52 Lemmer post is true. Lemmer is almost as bad as D.C Ralphie "Skeletor" Price (016 now) was when he was 1st watch Capt. in 023. They are both responsible for destroying two great watches. Total jerks on a power trips. Lemmer even tried to make Tact/Gang come to his roll call and stand inspection.

2. I was working the night that Sgt. Gonzalcockface (who is bipolar himself) was stopped. Yes, he was late for work. Yes, the 019 copper over reacted and called a chase over the air. Sgt. Gonzalcockface was/is a jerk. Even faked a heart attack when he got detailed (reverse seniority) after going off on the WC. All that said the 019 copper is an even bigger tool with an even bigger ego.

Lastly, as stupid as it can get in 023 we still have hot Lincoln Park trixies to look at, shitheads to arrest in Uptown, Fags to laugh at on Halsted, 5 miles of beautiful lakefront and great restaurants to eat free at.
Next time you tough "sout-siders" and west-side rangers want to hate on us, remember a bad day in 023 is better than a good day in 002,003,004,005,006,007,008,009,0010,011,015,021, we all gets paid the same.

Danny O'Connor was very close to his brother Jimmy, who was killed in the line of duty on 16SEP1995 at 4100 N. Marine Dr. while encountering an armed offender.
Almost every yr since his brother was gunned down in the LINE OF DUTY Danny would come down to 023 after drinking, and would look for his brother Jimmy. I remember one time he walked into the 23rd District Station and was asking for Jimmy, trying to find him. iT WAS ALWAYS DIFFICULT TELLING HIM JIMMY ISN'T HERE ANY MORE.
IT WAS VERY SAD. Every time he was out looking for his brother JIMMY around the end of August and sometimes around St. Jude we would get him home, no questions asked. Some of the coppers who came on the job and worked w/ JIMMY even cried with Danny on these occassions. Even the coppers who didn't know or work with JIMMY did the right thing.

Now don't get mad my comments are not in defensive or attack of either. If any of the post are legit. It sounds like this young man needs serious help, detox. I understand the grief of the GoldStar family as well as our own grief. Add the respect we should all show for them.

The question remains at what point do you cease enabling someone that is ill? Who may also be on their way to being a danger to themselves and other's in light of operating an automobile? How long do you take care of them and their addiction? Many of us know ways around the DUI and there are those that may have have taken a different route. That's a personal dicision on how your willing to handle at the momemt. Whether we think it's right or wrong.

Responsibility has to lie with this young man in getting help. the sooner the better. This is not the old days. We have fellow officers that were good cops in jail because of bad outcomes with drinking and driving. Those are heart breaking tragedies as well.

Although I don't know all the facts, it is sad that a gold star family member was DUI'd. Maybe there were reasons the copper had to that we are not aware of, but couldn't he have just made sure the guy got home ok? I for one am big against drinking and driving, having someone very close to me currently in prison for AGG DUI that involved a fatality. If you do pull over someone drunk that you don't want to DUI, please make sure they have a safe way home. Just letting them drive off is not only risking your job, but possibly the drunks or someone else's life. Think of all the coppers and their families on the would you feel if the guy you "did a favor for" was the one that killed them? Just a thought. I am not saying you HAVE to DUI anyone...just make sure they don't risk their lives or anyone else's.

For those of you who don't know this real life version of Robocop. These are his actual words on the radio, every day. "Traffic stop 2800 W. Irving (out of the dist as usual) I'm good on my own". One day he will call a 10-1. I will drive by with lights and siren on. I will then yell to whoever is kicking his ass to hit him again then lend the street justice providers my asp!!!

Before he was the DUI king and actually answered radio calls he always said after getting his job that he didn't want backup. If you rode on his job because you were right there he gave you hard time when he showed and basically assaulted you. This guy is king of the dickheads. U can't confront him either. He won't do shit except follow you around hoping you go to a tavern so he can DUI when you leave. He stated several times that he wanted to DUI a Sgt who was on the 3rd and is now on TACT.

Those who defend this JO, FU!!! I'm one of many from CPD who have been treated with no respect by Mr. Personality!!!!

Casper isn't in Statesville, but good point. We all know that police are held to a higher standard, so if there is a crash with a fatality, you know there is no way you are going to get probation like most of these assholes I go to court on. If you are police and get a Agg Dui now, hope you don't mind being locked up with all the shitheads you put in prison for at LEAST the next 3 years. Stay safe.

I think some of you are missing the point. What ever happened to an officer's discretion. Did Walters have to DUI Danny?
He easily could have made sure he got home OK.
This is what I think the point being overlooked is. Sure there are some coppers who fucked up.
No one here is saying let a blind drunk drive home. I for one have on numerous times taken the keys from drunken coworkers and driven them home. I have stopped drunken coppers and have driven them home or ensured they got a ride home, even when they were mean drunk.

There have always been copper's that write other coppers, their family members, Doctors, nurses, etc. Should you show courtesy? I think so but we have knuckle heads out there, that are just police and have no loyalty to anyone. We can call them misfits. As an example I have been pulled over by the state and also in Texas the cars had camera's, did they write no and it was appreciated. I have also been pulled over as has my family members and treated with great disrespect. There are as#holes across the board.

Cause he fell offa curb and fucked up his leg, so Lemmer, who HATES anyone on the Medical or IOD dumps the guy.
And his new traffic guy he refused DIF cause his relativwe died overseas and wouldn't be coming home for 7 days.
Thanks Phil for your personal pick.

I work in 019 and will say this about P.O. Walter. He is a Robocop and not a friendly guy. His whole agenda is to get as much OT as possible. He could care less about taking drunks off the road. He thinks his shit doesn't stink. He thinks the bosses owe him because he writes over 200 DUIs a year.

One of the earlier posters was a little extreme on this guy. I will just say this. I've worked in 019 for over 8 years. I've never seen or heard of P.O. Walter ever backup his fellow officer!!! Thats says more to me about him than anything else. Shame on him!!!!!

Now to be on topic. Working on the same zone as 023 I have to wonder, how do you guys keep getting the nutball boses? They get the pleasure of working in a slow dist without a whole lot do, yet mess with the P.O.s. I'm all for going after the do nothings. Violating the contract is another story. I remember when you had Capt Price on 1st watch, what a jerk!!!! U guys got rid of him, time to do what you did last time.

TO: Phil Cline

FROM: Captain Thomas Lemmer 023

SUBJECT: 3rd Watch Update

Supt. Cline since you appointed me to advance your vision for the CPD I am giving you a semi-annual update on Watch Operations here in the 023rd District. The following are the High points since my arrival for Command in Aug2005.

1. I have taken a Watch that had the highest seniority for all 3rd Watches city wide and lowered it vastly. I foresee utilizing reverse seniority to fill vacancies in the coming months.

2. I have driven off almost 10 officers from 3rd Watch and the District altogether.

3. I have implemented a dress code for Tact/Gang teams.

4. All Tact/Gang Teams MUST report to me upon their arrival for their tour and STAND INSPECTION at all MY roll calls.

5. I utilize SGT.'s to conduct MEDICAL checks on 23rd District personnell regardless of residence and have them report to me the nature of these so called ailments these officers suffer from.

6. I have increased the number of SPARS and SUSPENSION DAYS given at the District level.

7. I was almost successful at getting an officer into the Behavior Alert System for Medical Abuse but my Lieutenant would not concur w/ me since this officer turned out to be seriously ill.

8. I have almost completed all those books you recommended to me on LEADERSHIP skills.

9. I am being called down along with the DC to a Grievence Hearing regarding a Matrix I initiated to combat chronic crime conditions in the 23rd District.

10. There are currently 5-8 officers on 3rd Watch who are bidding out of the District since openings were announced last week.

11. I have also instituted a Rating System that I use in the District for 3rd Watch Personnell.

I will report back to you a synopsis of my first yrs. successes in about 6 mths. I just want to remind those of you that I am a VERY smart man. One more thing, I don't understand why everyone around the station are calling me Captain of the Titanic?
Didn't that ship sink?

Heres my question about this Walters fellow. Forget for a moment about him DUI'ing this Danny O'Connor. That issue can be debated forever. Both sides in that debate have valid points. My problem is, what about this other stuff that he does. Things like hiding out, not backing up other coppers, arrogance, going out of his way to write other coppers for the simplest violation etc., etc. He sounds like a real POS. So what I want to know is, what are the other Officers in 019 that work with him doing about him? Has he been ostracized as he should be, has he been told in no uncertain terms that until he gets his act together he will remain an outcast and can expect absolutely NO help on anything should the occasion ever arise? Is he allowed to go out with the boys after work for a few cold ones?
And what are the bosses doing about him? Is he working a special traffic or DUI car? Why isn't the Capt. dumping him???? Are the Sgts. and Lts. denying him time due whenever the can. You know, like when he asks for those "two hours on the end"? And if he is on a "special car", is he working a full eight hours like everybody else or is he ducking out early? When he gets a beef, are the Sgts., rather than going out of the way to unfound it as most of us do, doing the exact opposite and going out of the way to sustain it?
This guy obviously has no respect for himself, his co-workers, the Department and most importantly, the uniform that we all wear. He should be dealt with accordingly. There are alot of ways to skin a cat. Somebody better start doing it. And soon!

He won't get dumped off the traffic car because I'm sure he carries the watch with movers. The Bosses don't give a shit if nobody likes him or what he does, as long as he brings in those movers.

Does he sit on Rockwell (I think that's the street by the river) and Irving? I used to work with a guy in 019 who like that spot. Ionihe

The only thing good about Logan is when his "tick" kicks in and he rolls his eyes back and licks his lips uncontrollably. He does not even realize it.

It happens every time he tries to fuck over a P.O. or when he smells gay penis, which in 023 is quite often.

If even half of what has been said about the watch commander in 023 is true, a prompt psychological evaluation is in order.

At this point, you can not rule out paranoid schizophrenia or borderline psychopathy with delusions of grandeur.

As a subordinate, you would be remiss if you neglected to report his deviant behavior for psychotherapy and proper medication. Otherwise, his condition could deteriorate even further into a full-blown psychotic state.

Drive drunk once, maybe you can have a pass, drive drunk twice....too bad for you.

His brother died in the line of duty, and that's a sad state of affairs. I lost a brother and I know how it feels. But it sure sounds like this guy Danny needs to grow up.

So he gets a lifetime pass and can drive shitfaced because his brother was killed? I don't think so. Walters did the right thing. Maybe now when he gets shitfaced he'll do it on his backporch or in his own home. Drive drunk you're only pushing your luck. Ask Casper or Krass, or Delucia....and the names go on. Maybe one day it will stop, but not in my lifetime, and especially with so many apologists with stars.

I've written tons of DUI's but never to a copper. Always took them home, sometimes even if they didn't want to go home! But I was lucky, never had one involved in a serious accident. When that happens, there's not much you can do about it.

Family members? I take that on a case by case basis. Obviously if there is a bad accident, you're hands are pretty much tied. Otherwise, it depends on his/her attitude, what they were doing to draw their attention to me, his/her attitude, was it a citizen's complaint with citizen on hand, and finally his/her attitude.

I've taken them home, and locked up a few. Without knowing all the facts I wouldn't rush to judgement. Being a family member is NOT an automatic pass, it depends on the circumstances. If you think it is, you obviously haven't had it stuck up your ass (like I have) for helping someone out.
