Interesting Rumor

Let's track it down!

From a comments section, someone related that the Superintendent had ordered a reduction in manpower at 35th Street. Everyone and their brother (and we mean EVERYONE) knows that HQ is notoriously overstaffed. There was something along the lines of a 20% cut floated a year or more ago. The actual number ended up being quite a bit less due to who knows what types of shenanigans, but HQ went along with nary a hiccup. They even manage to send people to "Operation Closed Market" and still generate enough makey-work to choke a stable of horses.

To us, that means they could easily cut another 20% before anyone downtown actually saw an upsurge in the amount of work they are expected to (or paid to) actually perform. Seriously. Plus, it would open up a bunch more parking spots in the lot.

Let's hear from Fort Koolaid. We KNOW we have quite a following down there. Any truth to the rumors?

*Back on topic*
If man-power shortages in the districts were legitimate, then Seiser would do something about it.
If man-power cutbacks at 3510 S. Michigan were going to happen, then Seiser would have already done it. H-e-l-l-o - Seiser still runs it.

Major 35th/Mich cutbacks usually surface every spring in preparation for warm weather shooting season, but also in that conversation needs to be a recognition that the admininstrative staffs and desk numbers at the districts are also likely a little chubby, too.

But y'all who are eager to reduce manpower at HQ also can't be the ones who turn around and bitch to FOP when there's talk of having civilians do more admin work so cops can work the street. Whether their cops or not, someone gotta keep the paper moving. Agreed?

The problem is the Department hires civilians to do jobs that aren't necessary (District Manager, Crossing Guard Superisor, etc...) These could easily be done by a sworn officer in a much more efficient manner as part of that officers regular duties.

Take the District Manager in 025 for instance, who happens to make Lieutenants pay. For the 10+ years that she has been there, she has accomplished absolutely nothing other than creating a nice parking spot for her Cadillac nearest the front door. Why the front door when everyone else parks in the rear lot? So she can sneak out after two or three hours and run her errands.

If the Department was serious about saving money, they could eliminate this uselsess position and save an estimated $2,125,000 per year departmentwide. Think about it. . . the Department did just fine without them for 100+ years, as the District Secretary handled their assumed duties.

Thing is, neither the City nor the Department are interested in the effective allocation of resources. I guess the Department feels its better to pay a connected idiot a king's ransom to do what a qualified sworn officer could do as part of their regular duties.

Crossing guard duty as part of their regular duties? Holy jeezus, you might want to talk to ANY dispatcher on zones 6, 8, 10 or 12 over the last 40 years before doing this. Your intent might be good, but its a bad idea.

Change time between second and third watches is already difficult enough as it is. You start downing entire districts for 45 minutes in the morning and 45 minutes in the afternoon, and there'd be nobody left to stop criminals .

If all the inside jobs were manned 24hrs just like we do, then I could see why they need so many people. But they only work days. For those that work nights, getting in touch with any of them has to be done on our own time. Just a shame that only certain jobs on the dept are 24hrs.

Frank Limon << the writing is on the walls for him. The nonsense of manpower at 35th is a ongoing Spring battle which usually ends in a huff. The department is in a circle jerk of more meetings then murders. If the big meetings are reduced to roundtable discussions (one on one of what is going on and solutions) about 100 police officers could be made available to be the police.

I'm not giving up M-F 9-5 or my parking spot though.

Let's look at this...........

-Reduce manpower at Ft. Constipation? Can be done.

Kool Aid Detox?...Ain't gonna happen.

Put some of those po's on the street? Can be done. But, are they WORKING police or will they find another way out via a phone call or special assignments?.....

Eliminate some of those ccivilian spots. Not a bad idea.

Saving money? Can be done. But wait! A quick thinking aldercreature will snag that money up for their own raises or new positions. Status Quo.

A "heads up" for you and any male friends you have who may be regular Home Depot customers.

This month I became a victim of a clever scam while out shopping. Simply going out to get supplies has turned out to be quite traumatic. Don't be naive enough to think it couldn't happen to you.

Here's how the scam works:

Two seriously good-looking 20 or 21-year-old girls come over to your car as your packing your shopping in the trunk. They both start wiping your windshield with a rag and Windex, with their breasts almost falling out of their skimpy T-shirts. It is impossible not to look. When you thank them and offer them a tip, they say "No" and instead ask you for a ride to another Home Depot.

You agree and they get in the back seat. On the way, they start having sex with each other. Then one of them climbs over into the front seat and performs oral sex on you, while the other one steals your wallet.

I had my wallet stolen May, 4th, 6th, 8th, twice on the 10th, and three times yesterday, and very likely again this upcoming weekend.

Again - please beware!

Text of President Bush's speech on immigration Monday night:

Good evening. I have asked for a few minutes of your time to discuss a matter of national importance: the reform of America's immigration system.

The issue of immigration stirs intense emotions and in recent weeks, Americans have seen those emotions on display. On the streets of major cities, crowds have rallied in support of those in our country illegally. At our southern border, others have organized to stop illegal immigrants from coming in. Across the country, Americans are trying to reconcile these contrasting images.

And in Washington, the debate over immigration reform has reached a time of decision. Tonight, I will make it clear where I stand, and where I want to lead our country on this vital issue.

We must begin by recognizing the problems with our immigration system. For decades, the United States has not been in complete control of its borders. As a result, many who want to work in our economy have been able to sneak across our border and millions have stayed.

Once here, illegal immigrants live in the shadows of our society. Many use forged documents to get jobs, and that makes it difficult for employers to verify that the workers they hire are legal. Illegal immigration puts pressure on public schools and hospitals, strains state and local budgets, and brings crime to our communities. These are real problems, yet we must remember that the vast majority of illegal immigrants are decent people who work hard, support their families, practice their faith, and lead responsible lives. They are a part of American life but they are beyond the reach and protection of American law.

We are a nation of laws, and we must enforce our laws. We are also a nation of immigrants, and we must uphold that tradition, which has strengthened our country in so many ways. These are not contradictory goals. America can be a lawful society and a welcoming society at the same time. We will fix the problems created by illegal immigration, and we will deliver a system that is secure, orderly and fair. So I support comprehensive immigration reform that will accomplish five clear objectives.

THere's plenty of work to do in 012 if you can scrape your lazy ass out of the car and try doing it,still plenty to do in pilsen and they still have no problem dealing dope and shooting in abla daily, not to mention the northwest end picking up when rockwell closed and they moved east into st.stephens,but you probably never get in there either because you're too busy going from one starbucks to the other or waiting until you get a job to tell the zone you were "just headed for gas," or "just sitting down to lunch," getting to hear this constantly used to be comical,now it's just pathetic.012 used to be one of the best in Area 4 ,now it is the joke of Area 4.

If you ask any civil rights lawyer he will you tell you the police have no right to tell you to take something off your car that is totally legal.. of course most civil rights lawyers hate the police.

So somebody in 016 commented (improperly) about your wife having an FOP medallion on her car... big deal.

Would it have made you feel better if some copper in Englewood told her the same thing? Oh, then you'd have slammed HIM for being a dumb rookie. Yeah, not all coppers are intelligent or properly informed, that's just the way it goes. The main thing is that she didn't get any tickets and was on her way after a brief stop. The FOP medallion isn't a "magic button" that commands an instant free-pass to all who own one. Any time I've ever been pulled over by the on-duty police, I have no expectations of an automatic free pass. I just try to be as pleasant and courteous as possible, admit to whatever I did wrong, and casually mention that I'm also a copper. I have no idea what kind of day that the on-duty officer is having. He may have just handled a clusterfuck prior to stopping me and might not be in the best mood. The bottom line is, I'm not going to jump to conclusions like most of us coppers do. I'm just going to deal with what's before me and go from there. TRhe fact that these officers were from 016 means nothing. Sure, they have less crime in 016, but it doesn't mean they'll be any less dead if some nut decides to shoot them on a domestic or traffic stop.

Well all, The mayor has the solution for NO BREAKS for anybody...got a dept. of revenue notice in the mail today...seems the wifey ran a yellow light at an intersection with cameras, guess what,$90.00. I'll pay it, but guess what, Dear Mr. Mayor, NO REVENUE GENERATING TICKETS FROM ME! for a longgg time because of that ticket.
The king has figured it out, why hire more cops that may or may not give tickets when those cameras give everyone tickets. I hope vandals start targeting those things...bet I'll make it a 19B EVERYTIME! Yah, yah I know, if she didn't run the light she wouldn't get the ticket, but at least with a copper she could have got a break, we give shitheads in the ghetto so many breaks everyday out of mercy, cameras = no mercy!

This clueless wench is a micro-manager to the nth degree. When she was A/5 deputy, she came down on the desk personnel for playing a jazz cd during 3rd watch. She forbade them from having any music on during duty hours. God help us if she gets made Super. She got where she is by political whack and becuz of gender preferences.

I remember Maria Soto from her PO days in 019. She sat on the beat box (you old timers remember that) just to see over the dashboard. I also remember she went to 023 and hit a woman in the cross walk at Leavitt and Addison in broad day light coming back from gas, (couldn't) see the old lady I guess. Someone get her a phone book to sit on so she can see will ya

Did Soto ever work the streets in a West or South Side District? If so, where and how long?

Did she ever work the streets as a detective in the Detective Division? If so, where and how long?

If the last answer is "yes", did she have any experience solving open homicides? Details?

Does she have an extensive history of making Part I felony arrests in any unit?

With all due respect to those hard-working gals on the street that are pulling their fair share of the load of shit we call this City, there are waaay too many bad-attitide, fat-butted, arrogant, ignorant women hiding out all over this poor excuse for a Department, many with no years on the job, no experience, and who were desperate to get off the street five minutes after they hit it. They are an insult and an affront to working police women. If they want to wear the badge, let them work the streets and earn it. Otherwise, take away their tin and they can be what they truly are, cowardly clerks.
Equal pay for equal work and equal danger.
Damn right!
Keep safe, guys and girls!

About the F.O.P. medallion - this may sound counter productive, but I actually find that the meallion is not the test for police/family driving the vehicle.
While the general public feels that there should be know courtesy at all, it is fair.
Many electricians give thier family breaks.
Many plumbers giver thier family breaks.
Many accountants give thier family breaks.
As for me, if I pulled someone over, and the driver told me his sister is married to a deputy from Grundy County S.P.D., he/she got a pass - with the reminder to drive carefully and thank the deputy for the free ride. It is not illegal norunethical. I was engaging the three E's.
Enforce - the laws
Educate - the driver
Engineer- safer conditions
All that being said, with plenty of time on the job (3/4 way to retirement) I have only written six - yes 6 traffic citations. Not exactly a revenue generator.
For those aggressive writers, remember - you mom/sister/grandma/girlfriend/daughter/etc. will be stopped from some safety infraction - treat others as you want you loved ones treated.
BE SAFE
GO SOX
