A Very Cool Picture

Say what you will about this City, it's politics, it's residents and it's employees - it still takes a damn nice photo:

The buildings lit up in blue and the CPD logo and hat band on the left and star number on the right. This and other photos are over at the CPD Memorial website.

Maybe she can be your partner. Just be sure to grab those keys

Life goes on. Bad for some good for others. Let him rest and let her feel guilt and be paid back in spades the pain she caused. God has a way of evening the score. Other than that that is a beautfiul photo. To bad there's so much political poison ruining our everyday life.

The coppers that hang out at Dugans on a weekley basis and get drunk to oblivion...need to stop calling district cars to drive you home....either become more responsible or call a fucking cab!!This has become an "expected" practice every weekend....you need to designate a driver or save cabfare.

You guys are acting like grade schoolers. Remember that non police read this blog. Personally, I really don't like walking outside to be greeted by Pam Zekman or one of the other lesser reporters who are looking to sensationalize stupid stuff. Use your heads people. Quit giving people ammo to use against us.

Leave Eric's memory in tact. He was a good kid who ended up in a tragic event. It could have happened to any one of us. All of you out there know our lives can change in an instant on this job.

RIP Eric.

Once again Memorial day is upon us

A day of fun and relaxation

In between the parties and parades take the time to reflect

Reflect on the young men and women

Who heard another calling

Who left their families and friends

To fight in a distant land

To fight a foreign enemy

To fight for our liberty

To fight for a cause they felt was just

Shake that veteran’s hand as he sits

Watching that parade pass by

And thank him or her

For their service to our country

For the freedoms we all should cherish

For a country we call AMERICA

THANK YOU

Just a few thoughts............
As far as Eric Solorio is concerned, IF you want to truly show your support to HIS family [That includes 'US' his "Police Family"] then consider putting your money where your mouth is.**
Grab a partner or two and make plans for next years National Law Enforcement Memorial in Washington D.C. , May 13, 14, 15, 2007.
Our attendance there annually is proof positive of OUR commitment to all our fallen brothers and sisters in Law Enforcement of our commitment to, "Never Let Them Walk Alone."
Give it some serious consideration.

** I don't mean this to be a put-down if you can't afford to go. I'm well aware of 'our' financial burdens, i.e. mortgage, tuition, taxes, car and credit card payments etc., to name a few. My point is merely to seriously consider honoring our tradition of saluting all our brothers and sisters at the National Memorial.
IF time and money play a factor in your inability to participate, then an equivalent gesture would be to honor our fallen by keeping them in your thoughts and prayers.
Stay safe out there and remember OUR " Thin Blue Line."

Asshat? Why don't you go fuck yourself. I was there that night. Were you?

That was a tragedy that could have been avoided many times over. MANY times!

People should be told about who they might be working with so they can take appropriate measures to protect themselves.

So take your self-righteousness and stick it in your ass.

As someone who knew Eric and the type of man he was, he deserved better.

Don't know much about the Eric Solorio (RIP) incident, but agree that we should know who we are working with.

Speaking of which, whatever happened to that girl who was in housing, got shot with her own weapon, then went to a Northside district somewhere in A3? She still on the job?

Seems Gunther from Burnham was chrg'd. in 98 with impersonation and badges, but it was thrown out. Say's he collect's but he sells. Here th Chg. badges were very good, now would these be the new one's?

Gunther, 62, a part-time police officer in suburban Burnham, was charged under the new law Friday, said Penny Mateck, spokeswoman for Cook County Sheriff Michael Sheahan. Gunther was released on $1,000 bond. The law was prompted by a Chicago Sun-Times series that revealed how easy it was to buy police badges online.

In Gunther's basement, sheriff's officers said they found a legitimate Cook County sergeant's star that appeared to have been altered, plus 73 Chicago Police Department badges that were among the better fakes investigators have seen

I'll never forget that night of his wake.

With each step I took toward Blake & Lamb, my legs grew heavier and heavier.

Once inside, I went to his mother. Out of the corner of my eye, you could see him lying in the coffin. In uniform, looking so very young. Someone who will never be married, have a family...

Leave Eric's partner alone...seems like most of you are blaming her more than you would if she had been a male. I have seen these TRU and SOS guys driving like assholes all the time. Driving blindly through intersections and assuming people will stop because they have lights and sirens on, etc. Could have happened to any of us, and the fact that you are angry and blame her for the death is something you need to deal with. This was an accident, not intentional, and although I didn't know Eric, from what I have heard he would have been the type of person to forgive her for any mistake (if there was one) and ask you to do the same.
I hear the mother blames her also, and this is something she will have to deal with her entire life. I really feel for her, and hope you grow up and stop causing her more pain over this. I knew her in academy and she is a great person who does not deserve this abuse. I don't know how she is as an officer, but I think it is time to cut her some slack for this incident.
Before blaming others, look in the mirror. Can you honestly say that sometime in your career you have not made a mistake that COULD have put your partner or someone else in harms way? I think all of us have, and learned from it.
Stay safe.

You are a stroke! Why dont you give everybody her name in case they dont know. Or better yet send her pic to the media so the whole world can see the girl who killed Eric. IT was an accident! I knew Eric and her very well! He would have been driving the same way. He died being the police. I would rather work with her then all the idiots out there who quickly turned their back on her.

RIP Eric and all of our fallen Coppers, firefighters, Members of the U.S. Military

Hey moron, if you didn't know him personally, HOW DARE YOU attempt to speak for him!!!! Don't put words into his mouth.

And if you don't know anything about what type of copper she is, SHUT THE HELL UP!!!

You should never speak except from personal knowledge.

While I do not think she should be vilified anymore, it might do the other poster some good to know that she was not his partner. She was just working with him that night. I do not think "trust" is an issue here.

RIP Eric.
