Leading the Nation

Yes, Chicago leads the nation in at least one category - police shooting criminals. According to the Channel 7 story:
  • Since January 1, 2006, Chicago police have shot 20 suspects. Nine of them were fatally wounded. In Los Angeles, which has an estimated one million more residents, police have shot only 17 suspects during the same period. Five of them have died. In New York City, with a population two and a half times larger than Chicago, police have shot only 15 suspects. Five were fatally wounded.

    A Chicago spokeswoman cautioned against comparing numbers from different cities. "In every one of the cases, a weapon was recovered and the offender attempted to use that weapon against the officer."

Of course, this doesn't matter to self styled "community activists:"
  • The Reverend Paul Jakes, anti-police brutality activist, is outraged by Chicago's numbers and the police department's explanation for them:

    " I just can't buy every time that an individual has a gun or knife -- I just don't believe Chicago is as crazy as they say," said Rev. Paul Jakes, Anti-Police Brutality Activist.

Evidently, Channel 7 has decided it's time to beat on the police again in light of the Burge report on the horizon and Daley's mounting troubles with the corruption trials. When in doubt, slime the cops. You can trace all of society's ills to the police you know - if there weren't any police around, there wouldn't be any crime. Of course, you'd have to wade through piles of dead bodies to see it.

Jakes is a f*&cking jagoff. He has no clue. Him and Jesse are the two biggest racists the city has. The media just kisses their asses because they have big mouths and that draws in viewers. If the FOP had any balls they would be getting the message out but I guess they are just too busy drinking and planning more parties with OUR money.

I think you are wrong. The 016 cars sent to 011 do not, I repeat do not guard crime scenes. Why are they there?
Are YOU a hot shot 2 yr wet dream wonder out of 011?
The thing is YOU just don't know what the fuck is going on so, veterans w/ 15 plus yrs who worked in the ghetto when you were playing with GI JOES have to go to 011 and help YOU do YOUR work!
Ill see you in 016 when you do some time on the job kid, but Ill be getting ready to collect my pension, you will be in the middle of the tunnell. Remember this when you get drunk and beat the fuck out of your wife, we WILL make it all good so you can continue to support your kids.
So go ahead and bash us UNKNOWING, NEVER BEEN ANYWHERE 016 GUYS, AND WHEN YOU NEED SOME THING IN 016 CALL 011 AND SEE HOW QUICK THEY GET THERE.

RE: 01:47 AM
There are plenty of hard working "Cops" (note there is a difference between Police Officer and Cop) with plenty of time on the job working in fast areas. Is it possible that after 10+, 15+, 20+ years they are not scared? Why did you leave the ghetto? Are you scared of Joe? Are you lazy? OR; Did you never work the ghetto?

I'll choose choice C.

Another stupid arguement. If someone decides to leave a fast district it is because they are tired of the same old garbage all the time. I've worked in fast and slow districts but have enough time to take me where i want. When i was younger i loved the west side but it gets tiring. it's kinda nice to be able to see something besides burnt out cars and crack heads. 016 (and other districts) have cars in 011 because duke is an animal, not because 011 doesn't do their job. Quit beating up on eachother and face facts. Bosses want the west side quieted down because some of the higher ups have vested interests in seeing 011 turn yuppified and want to change it for their profit. No other reason. But it always comes down to p.o.'s pissing on eachothers legs screaming "I'm the real police!" I can't wait for my last year to be up so i can move somewhere nice and quiet and spend time with the wife and grandkids. Isn't that the point to this job?

Actually, having worked in various units throughout the City, I can say that the only good thing about the West and South sides are that one will become an expert at three things if you work there. Guns, dope and domestics. Thats it. Thats all they do. They are never exposed to anything else. Me, I'd take a copper thats worked in places like 001,019,018,024,016,etc. any day just for the different expeience they have. They do much,much more than the three things I've mentioned. And lets be honest. Once you have made a gun or dope pinch, you can say that you have made 1,000 gun or dope pinches. They never change. But yet some feel that the west or south side is where it's at. But it's not. Same old shit everyday. I actually feel sorry for these guys that THINK they are the real deal just because they work 011 or 007 etc. They are missing out on so much and have so much to learn.

Just for perspective on "citizens" shot by the police, I distinctly recall that in the late 60's or early 70's, there was a brouhaha in the media because in one calendar year, EIGHTY (80) bad guys were shot and killed by both police and citizens, all being ruled justifiable homicides.

In regards to the working police in the ghetto...
I'm sure some of you can verify this...
While spending time with friends, like you, we sit around and have a beer or whatever. Some friends are the police, some not. Well, as we stand there and B.S. about the days gone by, I find the P.O. with the most stories and the wildest tales, bragging to be from the ghetto, is an embarrassment to the department. He/she tells stories of the west side with "Will", kicking his ass for no reason. How he/she took care of business putting the leather to some teenage delinquent afro-American. I tend to sense that half of what he/she says is fabrication, and the other half a dream. As I say with money - "If you got it, you don't have to flaunt it". And that goes for personal pride, as well. If you feel what you do makes a difference, and you are good with that, let it be. No need to try and impress your non-police friends with fictitious stories of shooting, fighting, pissing, kicking, choking, crashing, etc.
And the sad truth is, this same fools, try and impress each with a better story. we all have had or will have a chance to do something heroic in our careers. If you work in the ghetto, is shooting teenage on the corner with a gun a hero? I'm not sure. Is it a favor to society? Oh hell yes, it is.
If you work in 008, 016, 022 and catch a burglary in progress to a P.O.'s home a hero? I'm not sure. Is it a great accomplishment, yes sir.
I present this to all of you...
would you rahter save a child from a burning building in 016, or shoot a westside Willy robbery in progress?
Please Lord, tell me all of you said save the child. If not, you need some serious counseling.
These animals will kill themselves off fast enough. We work for the innocent victims.
NOTE:
Most of these bosses couldn't recognize a good P.O. if he/she saved their life. Do it for yourself and your family. Not some Exempt.

God speed...

Don't even try to guess where I work... you have no idea. Just agree.

I started on the west side (010). I say been there done that. Made good arrests, nobody cared including the ghetto ass citizens who I was supposed to be protecting.

Work in a slow dist now. Make a robbery or burglary pinch and your a hero. Citizen says thank you, business offers you money or free shit and writes a letter to the commander or supt to put in your file. U decide which is better.

Still get sent to the west side on weekends now for operation safe summer. It hasn't changed, same shit hole. 010 does have a new station since I left and that is an improvement. There was a 10-1 in 011 Saturday night. There were more cars from slow dists there then from 011. I saw at least 7 cars from Area 3 dists and a few from Area 5. I guess we must have all been lost looking for Starbucks.

We r sent to the west side to help as it is needed. I don't care about the citizens but I do want to back up my brothers and sisters in blue. That should always be remembered. Stick together and stay safe. We all know the dept is loaded with do nothings. Thats never going to change. Don't randomly beat up on people you don't know.

Now onto the topic. The news and Jakes r a disgrace. One of us will get killed in the line of duty this year and nobody will call this jagballs Jakes on the carpet. I hate when the Brass or the FOP don't come right and tell this jerk off to shove it!!!! He is more dangerous than any jagoff that will get locked up this year.

Back each other up out there. That is what this job is about. We r all each other has!!!!!!!!

I was in 011 for awhile and I agree somewhat, you left out shootings and crime scenes and large civil disturbances (which usually break out after a police shooting, 10-1, turning off the fire hydrant in the summer etc, you get the point) the guns are there to be had, enough said; dope? if you can't find dope in one of these districts you should hang up the badge. After also having worked a "slower" district by ghetto warrior standards, I can tell you that there is alot to learn other than what was mentioned above, robberies, burglaries, theft from autos, patterns,but the nice thing is you get good victims in those districts,instead of victims with longer sheets than the offenders. You have to really work for a good dope pinch in those districts too, it's there, you just have to be patient, use informants, write a warrant, i.e. like 023 did in 016 last week up on Raven,recovering 2 pistols, rock and powder, it was a great job, it's there, it just doesn't fall across the hood of you car like it does in the ghetto. Bottom line, new guys on this job should try to be more well rounded and not just worry about chasing the bag, thinking it is the end all be all, because like everyone else that has been there and done that will tell you, it's not.....

OPERATION SAFE SUMMER...
Who's the loud mouth Gang Sgt in 011 grabbing up every mope, throwing them in the wagon for peon po's to do the paper. He is out there mother fucking them, making peon po do the arrest report. Who's name is on the arrest report? Does Sgt loud mouth sign the complaint? Will he take the beef? No, because he gets to duck at least 2 hours before we do. Perk for being a jerk.
To the bosses in 011 doing operation safe summer. We are being send to 011 against our will. We will do out job and back each other up so we can all go home safe to our family. How about treating us with some respect insted of calling us mother fuckers when we dont have a full humper to pad your numbers. Were a guest in your district. A guest police officer. Treat us like the responsible adults we are.
I was there last weekend and got more dis-respect from bosses than from the shit-heads. Can you say Grienance. Im pissed!!!
Fuck that! Officers, if you didn't see a crime take place, you should not sign the complaint. If you do, you go to court and testify a lie. What is that called? Liability? Civil rights violation? Words for thought.

Unfortunately this thread has degenerated into who is a better cop. The one who comes home safely is the one who did their job right.

As for the increased number of police shootings, the department's attitude is once again supportive of the officers. During the last administration, alot of officers were concerned that if they were involved in a shooting that they would be left to hang without support of their superiors.

This has created a very violent criminal element who when not honing their skills shooting each other have lost all fear or respect of us. But there is an obvious change in the wind again and there is once again a need for the police to be the police and not some carebear socialworker.

Please stay safe...respond to each others call for help, I know that if I call for a 10-1, I won't care what district you're from just that there will be a sea of blue...God Bless

4:08, don't take this the wrong way, but they might have just been rewarding you without saying it directly.

If I were a lieutenant, I'd find a way to reward my people every time they shot someone legitimately (99% of the time in police shootings). And there would be no better way than teasing someone by saying "hey, you missed the center of his forehead by 1.5 inches, WTF pal, you qualify recently"?

Seriously, sounds like the lieutenant really wanted to pat you on the back. Oh, and quickly get you into pulling a trigger again so that it doesn't seem like its only associated with a distant bad dream.

In reguards to the shooting the other night out south.(not sure exactly where)where three P.O.'s ran when the shooting started. Very good sources have said that two of the P.O.'s are PPO' and the Dept. is moving to fire them We'll have to wait and see. More to come stay tuned!

This conduct occurs in all the city departments!!!!!!!

When Coretta Scott King passed away, I had to constantly hear about how "they" should have been off, all huddled around bitching and moaning while I'm working my ass off.

Finally I got so mad that I said Martin Luther King pushed for civil rights for ALL of us!!!!!

One of the long time Revenue Auditors, was the best. If you pissed him off, he would "misplace" many of the business tax returns, because we would have to initial the bottom of the return once they were faxed in. I started seeing a pattern, and each time I asked him if he had them, would get a snotty response. Then the "group" would laugh about it. It was sad, because I had this old German man fax it in 2-3 times. Finally he drove all the way in from Schiller Park to bring in the return. The Auditor was extremely pissed because he had to stop and actually go over and enter the return, which took approx 5-10 minutes.

Finally, I approached the floor supervisor and told her about it. She already knew, as he had done it to her, and others!!!

I don't know about you, but I felt like the minority!!!!!

The city employees need equal rules, and any type of racial bullshit on the job, you get written up and verbal warning. Do it again, you get bounced out. Worthless, lazy individuals anyway.

I'm all for talking about who's a better cop. Lets talk about it. For instance maybe have a point system. The system would work like this: dope pinch for possession 1 point, homicide pinch and your in box one then 20 points (maybe 30). Develop your own point system. Get charges approved add 3 points. Get conviction add another 5 points.
Holy cow!
Can you see where this would lead. I better shutup. I talking about evaluating officers. Pretty soon someone will be talking about using this idea for promotions.
FORGET WHAT I JUST WROTE! FORGET IT! IT WAS STUPID. IT WAS JUST A STUPID IDEA.
THAT'S IT I'M HITTING THE MEDICAL.

All the talk about 017's tac team is refreshing-especially when 009 is filling it's rosters with kids who have absolutely NO knowledge of being police...Why is a PPO in 009 on callback for being locked up two nights ago in 022? WTF???

I work in headquarters at 35th and Michigan. I have read these messages and I can't believe that there are so many whiners out there.

You guys don't know how hard we have it. I have fight horrible traffic to get to work initially. I then have to drive around the lot to find a parking spot...luckily for my community policing skills I can usually get a good spot close to the doors.

I then have to make a mad dash to swipe in and then go start my coffee pot for the morning. I then go to my cubicle and ignore then endless phone calls from you guys on the street. I am way too busy looking at my emails, eating my donut and sipping my coffee.

After such a grueling start, I then go back downstairs for my cigarette break. If I am fortunate, I have avoided any of my idiot supervisors and get back upstaitrs for my assigned break.
I will probably go visit my friends and chit-chat for awhile.

After several cigarette breaks I get around to answering a phone call. I then will put that officer on hold while I research whaterver info that guy needs. I always find this distracting because I have to stop my websurfing and have to sign in on whatever department application I am supposed to be working on.

I then need my one hour lunch break. I have spent a big portion of the morning making coordinations with my fellow officers as to where we are to go for lunch. These decisions cannot be taken lightly as this will set the tone of the entire afternoon.

After returning to work, I need an after lunch cigarette. I then return and find some department papers in my in box. I flip thru them deftly, avoiding any papercuts. These papers will take up most of my afternoon as copies have to be made and forwarded to fellow officers or supervisors.

I see that it's getting close to the end of my shift and my phone starts ringing again. I mean seriously guys, look at the clock, I leave in 15 minutes. Luckily I have a hold button and I usually will put you on hold. I'm sure the guys from the next watch can attend you.

I finally swipe out and I head home. I really hope you guys are ashamed of the name-calling for each other. Try to remember those of us who are really having a hard time downtown when you get into your selfish mode.

TO POST 2:14:15 AM

YOU ARE TRUELY SHOWING YOUR LACK OF TIME ON THE JOB W/ YOUR RESPONSE. I WORKED THE GHETTO BEFORE YOU KNEW YOUR ABC'S.
I WORKED CITY-WIDE, ALL KINDS OF MULTI AREA OPERATIONS AND BLAH BLAH BLAH.
I CHOSE TO GO TO 016 FOR PERSONAL REASONS, FAMILY, COMMUTE, WORKING IN AN AREA WHERE I GREW UP IN.
YOU DON'T THINK OF THESE THINGS WHEN YOU ARE A NEW SNOT NOSED ROOKIE LIKE YOURSELF. I HOPE YOU KEEP THE PASSION ABOUT THE JOB WHICH YOU SHOW THRU YOUR POST (AT LEAST I AM ASSUMING YOUR NOT A INSIDE DESK FUCK). THE POINT I AM TRYING TO MAKE IS THAT JUST BECAUSE ONE WORKS IN 016 DOES NOT MAKE THEM A DOG OR A KNOW NOTHING OR LESS ABLE THAN YOUR SUPERSTAR SELF. ONE DAY, KID WHEN YOU GET SOME TIME ON THE JOB, AND YOU ARE LIVING IN GOD'S COUNTRY, YOU WILL, YES YOU WILL, THINK ABOUT WORKING CLOSE TO HOME. THERE'S NOTHING WORNG WITH THAT. TAKE YOUR EXPERIENCE (WHICH SOUNDS LIKE YOU HAVE SOOOOO MUCH OF IN YOUR 2 YR EXISTENCE) AND BRING IT OUT HERE TO 016 SO WE CAN ALL BOW DOWN AT YOUR ALL KNOWING KNOWLEDGE OF THE JOB. AND WHEN YOU DO I KNOW SOME NEW KID WILL BE SAYING THE SAME SHIT ABOUT YOU THAT YOUR SAYING ABOUT A WHOLE LOT OF EX-GHETTO WORKING COPPERS. TILL THEN STAY SAFE KID AND TRY TO PULL YOUR HEAD OUTR OF YOUR ASS AMD SEE THE BIGGER PICTURE.

At least the guy you are criticizing learned his ABC's. you must be from the "Old-School", when a GED wasn't even required. It shows in your post.

Capt. Ryan?

I remember when he was a P.O. walking around Chicago Ridge Mall showing his gun off to the 18 y.o.a
girls working in the stores.

Wasn't his dad an exempt?
Please confirm....

He probably violated some laws with those under age girls.
