Sarcasm and Silliness from a Windy City Cop
posted by SCC at 12:07 AM
God bless the Chicago Police.
Question, how many of these TRU 2 year wonders have gone to 35th Street to work for a boss? Is it true that a 28 year old genius, who is supposed to be a medical doctor (kid you not), went from training in 008, to TRU, and is now working for a boss at 35th Mon-Fri in 5 years? Now her special friend and FTO is the newest Sgt. in TRU. Is it clout or is she just a genius?
22 suspects shot by police this year so far.Also there was 19 shots fired by the police without somebody being shot.We are on a roll boys and girls. Keep up the good work. Don't judge people, let the Lord do that. Just do your job of bringing them to the Lord.
Didn't see that great BIG "W" on the front of her shirt, didn't notice the cape flapping in the wind either
I am having sex with a different black woman each time an Officer shoots a person! That's my resolution. OH YEA!
Here is one...and I know FOP reads this. LETS GET OUT OWN MEDICAL INSURANCE!!!!!!!I know that we can get a better product for what we are paying. What insurance carrier wouldn't love to take on a new customer who has 10,000+ employees. Philly P.D. did it!!! I will even go one better. Pay en extra, say $20 a month and give retirees coverage. We have to look out for our own!! I have at least 10 more years to go and common sense tells me we have to take care of each otherbecause the city doesn't give a shit about us. The reason the city (and the bed fellows at FOP) won't go for it is that all that money we pay monthly, sits there, collecting interest, and claims go out at a snails pace. But yet, the city,again, reaps rewards from our hard work, again, while we get shafted with this crappy medical. Oh yeah, not to mention that the city benefits office employs family members of say, ex-union members and gosh, we wouldn't want to put them out of a job.I say FUCK the city and get our own coverage. 2013 is around the corner ladies and gentlemen and where will we be then?
Where is the best place to get business cards?
Homicide in 022....appears a random act of violence...m-2 on f-2....stabbed. Offender in custody.....
Funny,what does that great BIG "W" on the front of her shirt stand for? Is what I think it is? And I don't mean her last name.
Just once I would like the Press to refer to the person shot as the OFFENDER instead of the "shooting victim" It really tans my hide to hear the FOX or even our own wgn news say that the "Victim shot by police" is blah blah blah. THE OFFENDER IS THE ONE WHO GETS SHOT BY POLICE. THE VICTIM IS TH EONE WHOM THE OFFENDER PREYED UPON. Pat camden, If you are reading this, would you please tell the press to refer to the persons involved in the correct way? DOES ANYONE AGREE?
******* KOOL-ADE WARNING *********apparently the ade has gone citywide. on the CTA bus, this announcement "... if you see someone boarding the bus without paying, contact the CTA!"bringggg brrrinngg!Hello, CTA? yes, I would like to report some dude got the bus without paying! What does he look like? I dunno. Some white dude.click
That chick claims she is a super genius who graduated from college at 14rs old and then went to medical school and was a practicing doctor until she had a change of heart and joined cpd to fight crime. Give me a break! If she is so doogie howser smart why does she need to attend sgt study groups and why wasn't she #1 on det list?
FYI The G is coming for a W/C in the 8th district about some kind of filing of false police reports.
THE NEW FOP INFOMMERICALI used to think my paycheck sucked. Trying to juggle bills, etc to make ends meet.Until I went to the FOP President School of Paycheck Success!Yes siree, they teach the power of "VISUALIZATION"I just graduated and now, am waiting to get my paycheck tomorrow. According to the school's calculations, my check tomorrow should be at least 4x MORE than what I actually report!!This ad sponsered by...KRAFTproud sponsor that provided free kool-ade beverage for the school
If the Fred Hampton sign issue is dead, why are Tac/Gang teams in uniform on radio alert for a protest/rally on Friday 16 JUN?
Why do coppers seem to attack the 009 District so much? it has tremendous backlogs and many, many gangs to deal with. It is both a training district and a working busy district. Many Commanders, Sgts, etc can accredit 009 to their success. Why all the buzz about the 009 tac unit? Can't we all just get along?
what the fuck is this hampton rally about?
She's a BIG GIRL watch out she might sit on you,and give you a lesson or two.
so what happened in 022???? did some off duty copper shoot offender?
She is a genius,after working at 35th Street as a crime fighter she goes to her side job at McDonalds to fight more crime. I’m sure the crime stats are much lower because of her. Yea right! Just what we need, a do nothing know it all rising star.
Lt G. is not as bad as his buddy Lt K. over in TRU both clout heavy. They both think they are better than the p.o’s. But Id pick Lt. G. over his buddy any day. At least he won’t try and take your woman. But I think that runs in the TRU blood. Word is the “guy in charge” is a bit of a player himself. He is building his stable with those young “ladies” on his office staff. Hmmm any buddy wanna guess who he has in his cross hairs? Well you don’t really have to, at the next party listen close. Once the “beverages” start flowing he’ll tell you how he’ll be dipping into some salsa. Is there a trip coming up to "seal the deal" hmmmm? Yes Im jealous! Makes me study even harder for my white shirt. The Money is good, but those benefits……….Dang!!!! Come on June 24…..
Dr **** won't be the first or last gal to fellate her way up the ladder in this department. She's just one of many who have done the same thing. Smart? NoShameless? No doubt!
FYI The G is coming for a W/C in the 8th district about some kind of filing of false police reports. ----------------------------------that's good. level another lawsuit to come as well
Yea, but YUCK! She's Big and Ugly!
Why can't the National FOP offer Health Insurance? How many FOP members across the country??Other UNIONS offer benefits?Oh The Mayor didn't give Mark donahue the go ahead! He doesn't need it with his $175 K a year salary anyway and a nice job when he decides to retire.
What Hummerman wants Hummerman gets!Rumor has it, Huberman loves GPS and ALL POLICE VEHICLES WILL HAVE IT INSTALLED IN 3 WEEKS.Info will be sent in as to when cars start, seat belts go on, where they go, how long they idle, etc...etc...BIG Brother is watching! If your on the Know, spill the beans!
GPS my ass!My 2-cent piece of tinfoil will make that high-priced gizmo totally useless!!
Who is this poindexter looking nerd named PEPLINSKI that works in 011, usually on the desk, that claims he would make a better sgt., than any sgt. in 011?
Been reading for awhile now, first time commenting.I'm a patrol cop for a very small city in Texas. We have patrol, a K9 guy, a part time SWAT team, a few detectives, and that's about it. I might be opening a can of worms, but could somebody explain the roles of Tac Units, Gun Teams, TRU, Gang Unit, ect? I know these are specialized units, different from regular patrol, but I'm not sure how they fit into the command structure. Do their functions overlap? I know these units are the subject of a lot of jokes, but any responses would be appreciated. Thanks.
3:55 Jack, Gang, Tac, and Gunteam units are plainclothes officers that don't generally answer service calls, they are free to find guns, dope, gather gang itelligence info, and basically do all this by making traffic stops etc. Tru is a unit, in uniform, that is sent into the busier districts to saturate problem areas of the city. Hope this answers your questions....
join the NRA!
NO gps. That antique equipment at oec couldn't handle it. It's one thing to have a few dozen fire trucks and 50 ambulances to track it's another thing to track 1500 squads. So until they sink 10 mil into the ops floor I wouldn't sweat it. Peace out boys and girls
go to the 014th district...3rd watch,stand up roll call every day,weapons inspection four times a week,and if you're not cleanly shaven,look out you might just get a reprimand,go ahead stick me with the worthless,i'll give you what you give me...NOTHING!
0407 correct that TRU unit doesn't answer radio assignments either. They might piggy back on a call or eves drop on a simulcast and respond, but they don't fill the empty slots on the rosters to handle beat car calls.
Puerto Rican Fest what asshat let's these idiots celebrate for a week? Come on all this police service so that Julio and Juanita can have some funnelcake and ride the tilta whirl!!!!
TRU is the hardest working unit out here!!!
when i worked lock-up I onced processed 20 prisoners in 4 hours!! thats hard work buddy!!

7:25 AMWe discontinued PEP (Preventive Enforcement Patrol) in the NYPD years ago. Too many "cocabola shampoos".
"Cocobola shampoos" are critical in taming the beast.However, we've discontinued the use of the toilet plunger up the ass.
just got finished reading animal farm by george orwell. if you don't know that's where the animals take control of the farm from the evil human owner. soon the pigs take charge of the farm and dictate policy to the rest of the animals. before long the pigs begin to lie to the rest and cut back on food portions and all other perks and reward themselves with same. those are just the highlights but each page i read further reminded me more and more of 3510 s. michigan.
Keeping Iraq's Oil In the GroundDid the U.S. invade Iraq to tap its oil reserves or to make sure they stayed under the sand? World oil production today stands at more than twice the 15-billion a-year maximum projected by Shell Oil in 1956 -- and reserves are climbing at a faster clip yet. That leaves the question, Why this war?Did Dick Cheney send us in to seize the last dwindling supplies? Unlikely. Our world's petroleum reserves have doubled in just twenty-five years -- and it is in Shell's and the rest of the industry's interest that this doubling doesn't happen again. The neo-cons were hell-bent on raising Iraq's oil production. Big Oil's interest was in suppressing production, that is, keeping Iraq to its OPEC quota or less. This raises the question, did the petroleum industry, which had a direct, if hidden, hand, in promoting invasion, cheerlead for a takeover of Iraq to prevent overproduction?...

Your district is not as fun/fast/exciting as you tell all the girls at Duggan's.
Great job to the new Capt on the south side making a murder pinch off duty!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Give me a break! If she is so doogie howser smart why does she need to attend sgt study groups and why wasn't she #1 on det list? 6/15/2006 11:46:51 PM Where did this so-called Doctor/Genius/Crime Fighter “supposedly” go to college? Where did she “supposedly” practice medicine? Who is she working for at 35th ? It sounds like she has a real “CRIME FIGHTING” position. This is priceless, sounds like a real boss in the making.
It may be true that she was in 008 and TRU for a short period of time. Its also true that after her partner in TRU was run over by an offender she put three in the ten ring and iced the stroke. P.S. She was asked to come to 601.
It’s also true her FTO (now Sgt. in TRU) was given an ultimatum from his wife to end a two year “friendship” with her or end the marriage. He chose to leave his 6 year old twin daughters and wife for the “friendship”. I’m sure his daughters think she’s a great gal and a hero while they see their dad every once in while. Keep up the good work Doc.
Read todays Tribune story of the woman truck driver (hired under clout) who has had about five traffic accidents, Maimed a co-worker, hit cars, garages, lamp poles, and is still driving a garbage truck, even though she had no previous truck driving experience.All with only a one day suspension which she has never served as of yet due to clerical errors.It's amazing! And we are paying the check for her Experience.Out of over 3500 applicants, she was one of 200 who were best qualified, even though she had no CDL or experience as a driver.
First!!! OH Damn, Nevermind. Shit Shit Shit :(
Thanks for the replies.

I hate the 9th district just because the name sounds gay, "I work in 9" I mean come on! that sounds so gay. The number 9 is so gay.
Those TRU 2Yr. wonders make more pinches than most of you shit talking, fat, eatin burn out-spots (eg; O C B) mother fuckin ZERO's !!Go find a second gig, your almost there buddy, sorry you can't say you worked for a city-wide unit..SON. OF. A STAR!
This open forum sucks....Still with the "I'm the real police because I work here...blah blah.." who gives a rat's azz? All this who's screwing who at Duggan's talk is B-O-R-I-N-G...and it takes up space that could be better used to talk about real issues that face all of us, or are the topics raised here ALL that concern most of us? Because if that's the case, we are in trouble!
kniaz runs it!!!

You mean you are expected to be in UNIFORM?!?!? Shaved and everything?!?!? My god, man, what kind of horrors will these shameless bastards make you do next!?!?! Sorry Sally, but you're making upwards of $60k a year, buy a fucking razor and wash your pants once a week! Not that much to ask, really.It's always been easy to see who has military experience on this job: usually they're the only ones squared away and presentable at roll call, NOT bitching about a weapons inspection!
anybody know a car dealer at Jacobs Twin who can take good care of us?
the 009th disterict is a bunch of strokes ask any outside unit that has the misfortune of working there! the milk the calls thats why there is a backlog! most of their bosses suck donkey nuts. fuck the 09th district!
anybody know a car dealer at Jacobs Twin who can take good care of us? 6/16/2006 03:47:39 PM I don't know that they deal with us all that much anymore. Seems they've grown tired of the coppers in 025 who hammer the shit out of the cars they park on the parkway to show off. I drove by there on my way to the Area one day and there had to be over 20 cars with parkers on them.
Seems they've grown tired of the coppers in 025 who hammer the shit out of the cars they park on the parkway to show offxxxxxxxxxFigures! Fucking coppers could screw up anything!I bought a car there a few years ago, the manager was named Skip, he was the man to see right off the bat. He set me up with one of their "VIP" sales people. I'm sure that title is just a stroke job, but I was very happy with the price and the whole deal. My jaw dropped when the first price he quoted me was $900 less than the highest price I would except, after doing my homework.
you guys are complete dorks i cant believe you're working about these girls who are pretty much fixtures at dugans and bourbon. not much moral fiber to begin with. you dumbasses keep trying to find your dream girl at the bar maybe you'll find her some day. i wouldnt hold my breath. those bust outs are nothing but badge chasers and i wouldnt give them the time of day. god only knows what diseases they're carrying.
They must have diseases that delete the rules of grammar, punctuation and capitalization. Looks like you've been through a few of them, eh?
4:10,I’m sure he also gave you a great deal on the rust protection, stain resister treatment on the carpeting and extended warranty. Let me guess, he also said he liked your alot and may lose his job for giving you such a low price. Dork, fucking salesman tells you that you are a VIP and you think you got a great deal! The dollar signs starting flashing in their heads once they saw you walk in wearing your white t-shirt and navy pants.Cops are such idiots and easy to stroke.Sincerely,Your local car dealer
CNN breaking news -- Grand jury in Washington decides not to indict U.S. Rep. Cynthia McKinney in altercation with Capitol police officer.* I can't believe this! If she can get away with this, then the officer who got slapped, should slap her back. But we all know what would happen to THAT officer...
Send in Seiser to take care of Rep McKinney.....
6/16/2006 05:13:43 PM You have no fucking clue what you are talking about. Just couldn't resist taking a swipe at another copper who's trying to help out another copper. Did you miss the part where I said that I got the car for almost $1000 less than I thought was the absolute lowest price after much internet homework, with no hard sell and no haggling?I'm sure you could've done better somewhere else though, being that you are such a superior human being and all. Puke.
Heard that they are starting to ask for meritorious picks for next sergeants class.
For Business Cards try :Vail Printing. 2525 North Elston Avenue Suite 1 Chicago , IL Phone : ( 773 ) 252 - 2600. Business Types Printers Services They have the machinery for raised printing on business cards. They have CPD logos, prices were reasonable. Most printing companies have the business cards made by Vail because of the specialized machinery required.I have made very good business cards on my computer using "Print Shop". You can make a page of ten at a time with Avery stationary.To the guy asking about Jacob Buick, I suggest you check out carmax.com. I used to buy cars through our credit union and Enterprise Rent-a-Car Carmax was everything they said they were on TV, had a much better selection and were hundreds less than Enterprise.
6:45 PMWould you please stop using the word "meritorious" in describing the "clout picks" in the CPD?At least use quotation marks.Someone may get the mistaken impression that the "selection process" is actually legit.

Don't think for a second that the middle class people are gonna see any of those "new" schools in their districts that Da Mayor is talkin about. Helllll no. They are gonna go to everywhere except Beverly, Mt.Greenwood, Garfield Ridge, and Edison Park. Did you hear da Mayor today in his news briefing?......... He stated "You taxpayers are gonna see where you taxes are going and I'm proud of the city council for helping put this through." BULLSHIT! Last time I looked the only hard working taxpayers are the ones that I live by, not Pilsen....not Englewood, not the westside not northside and certainly not bronzeville! Who's really making out in this new deal for schools and who's getting the shaft.....we are as usual! I'm so sick and tired of even hearing this Ass talk about helping the people that need it the most when those fuckin people are always getting the most and you see what they do with it time after time after time!!!!! They fucking destroy everything from neighborhoods to homes to business's and even SCHOOLS. 300 people in class beginning of year, 30 graduating at the end! C'mon people are we that blind that we keep turning the other cheek when it comes to giving these fucs everything while we keep shelling out 5, 6 8K for our kids to go to private schools and we can't even get a decent one where we live so maybe WE can be helped out alittle. Sorry for the long rant but, I'm extremely one pissed off person right now and fed up of catering to those who always getting catered to.
Never posted here before, and I have no idea who SCC is and don't care. He should check his sources. The other day he used the quote, "Make no small plans...," and attributed it to Machiavelli. The quote was actually much later and much closer to home. It is attributle to Daniel Burnham. You could look it up.
I GOTTA A CHANCE TO GO TO SOS---WHATS THE DEAL? R THEY THE REAL POLICE STILL? WHATS UP WITH THE BOSSES, THE BROADS THE SCREW ALL, AND THE COPPERS WHO DONT THINK THEIR SHIT STINKS. SEEMS GOOD WHAT ABOUT SWAT
From wikipedia.com:Burnham may not have ever said the most famous quote attributed to him: "Make no little plans. They have no magic to stir men's blood and probably will themselves not be realized." The quote, however, captures Burnham's architectural essence.Now check the POWER QUOTE website:Niccolo Machiavelli: Make no small plans for they have no power to stir the soul.DO NOT ever mess with our Machiavelli quoting. You will ALWAYS lose.
GAME, SET, MATCH TO SCC.
6149 S. Narragansett in Garfield Ridge. Check out the home. Semper Fi
Be aware IF buying from JACOBS on Grand Avenue....ALL the cars THEY have in stock were 'Hail Damaged'They have no inside storage facilities.FYIThey do discount their hail damaged cars through the insrance company but FOREWARNED IS FOREARMED
"...6149 S. Narragansett in Garfield Ridge. Check out the home. Semper Fi..."That is NOT Garfield Ridge! That's Clearing!Garfield Ridge goes to the railroad tracks just a slight bit past 59th Street. The homes in Clearing drop about $50,000 in value once you cross over into Clearing, which is loaded with po' White trash.So what are we supposeed to be looking for at that address in C-L-E-A-R-I-N-G, Mr Clueless Wonder?Another beast renting a house over there by them hillbillies?
The AREA 2 female dics, are they that UGLY?
.............beauty is only skin deep
Real Estate Developers and Brokers, will move neighborhood boundries, to up the price that people will pay for homes. This happens in Lincoln Park, Wicker Park, Bucktown and I am sure Clearing and Garfield Ridger.What will they call beautiful downtown Englewood?
008th district 1st watch leadership has taken a turn for the worst in the past few years. It was manageable for a while after Captain Hughes retired, RIP. Now though, forget it.

"...Real Estate Developers and Brokers, will move neighborhood boundries, to up the price that people will pay for homes.

"...Another beast renting a house over there by them hillbillies?..."YEAHCome and visit us in Clearing and we'll be waiting. Clearing, home of many generations of police officers and fire fighters, home of the Blue.But sure! Come on over and we'll be waiting for you. WE'll beat your ass into the ground with cornstalks, and then run your ass over with a cow. Now I have to go and enjoy this lovely day tending to my moonshine still, get some sun on my legs, and put on my daisy dukes for the hoe down later tonight! idiot...
You better check the ClearRidge Reporter or the Sunday Southtown -My house in Clearing is selling for just as much as your shack in Garfield Ridge!
To: 02:40:16 I thought that there was a Capt Farrell coming to the 1st watch in 008. What happened?
jacobs twin always sucked...they never took car of the police.....they fuck you any chance they get...so fuck them and parking their cars on the sidewalk...who the fuck do they think they are....if you pat my back and i'll pat yours....i went to jacobs twin and they wanted to sell me a honda civic for the same price i picked up a honda accord from castle honda(dempster/waukegan)....jacobs twin wanted to give me $1,ooo for my trade in....castle honda gave me $2,500 .....you do the math....
anyone you can recommend at castle honda? i was thinking of Jacobs for the hail sale. but not if other cops say run far away.
mazen bittar at castle honda......he's good to the police
Anonymous said... To: 02:40:16 I thought that there was a Capt Farrell coming to the 1st watch in 008. What happened? 6/17/2006 06:06:43 PM They got screwed and he went to 002. I've heard nothing but bad things about whats been happening in 008 lately. They need to get some morale boosters in there or its going to get rough.
Nothing can save 008. They have the largest collection of do nothing, no balls, primidona, malcontent officers of any district in the city. The only thing that can help them is more kleenex and pampers.
It not dumbass to say that Real Estate people are as shaddy as used car salesmen and lawyers. They do move neighborhood boundries in their advertising to make more money. If they call it Clearing or Garfield or Miami Beach North is someone going to sue over copywrite. The address quoted may not be in Garfield Ridge.....now.
I'd disagree, 008 can be saved. It's the bosses. Especially the 1st watch bosses. Most, not all, are idiots, who all have their little clicks. Moral is way down. The cops are good just down in the dumps.
Is there anyplace, anywhere in the patrol division, where the moral of the troops is high? Is it due to the bosses, if so who are they and what do they do that keeps the moral high. But maybe we should not spread this info around. High moral, troops happy, the ivory tower dictators will try to destroy a good thing.
Response in 008 is AWFUL, and has been for years. Obviously, some of the blame has to be placed on the shoulders of the supervision, or lack of it. One day while passing through 008 I saw an on view fight on the street. A large white guy (bust-out) attacked a weel dressed Hispanic guy who was waiting for a bus. I flagged down an 008th District car that was less than 100 feet away from the incident and informed them of what was happening. They drove right to the location and then drove completely past it, turning off at the first available side street. I only wish I had noted their outside number or beat tag; I would have certainly filed a beef.I pulled my own car over and handled it myself. If you need help in the 008th District, expect a loooooooong wait. That District has had response problems for quite awhile. No telling when it will improve, as it was known for years back in the day as a white cop "do-nothing" dumping ground, much like 006 was known as the same for black cops. Both Districts have changed, as the economics of their residents have changed. But the old "I ain't doin' nothin" attitudes haven't, AT LEAST NOT IN 008.
Not all the problems in 008 are the result of bad supervisors. Let's be honest, once you leave roll call you are pretty much an independent contractor. The responsibility falls on the officers to take a little PRIDE in themselves and do the job the right way. So what if the watch commander is a political hack. Go out and lock somebody up, get some court time and keep our nieghborhoods safe for our own.
Hey Lt. Georgass , don't touch the water pipes..........., dumbass!
To the person who slammed 008 coppers for being slow to respond...Get serious, man. Maybe you work in a rinky-dink district where the boundaries are 3 or 4 miles in length or width - max, like most districts. 008 is friggin' HUGE!! We go all the way past I-55 to 38th Street at the north end to 87th Street on the south. From Bell on the east end all the way to Harlem. It takes a half hour to get from one end of the district to the other with all the traffic lights, and at least 15 minutes with lights and sirens. Also, take into consideration that 008 is the most populous district in the city. If 008 was it's own municipality it would be the 5th largest city in Illinois. That means LOTS of calls for service. 008 has been #1 in calls for police service for the past several years. 008 gets over 100,000 calls for police service a year. Do the math... that's a LOT of calls per day! Every day, 008 has a constant backlog. Every beat car gets 3 or 4 calls right out of the box on 3rd watch and about a third of them are "in-progress" calls. There isn't a day that goes by during the school year where one of the several high schools doesn't have gang fights and batteries going on when school lets out. Bogan, Curie, Hancock, Kennedy... all loaded with the beast and totally up for grabs. Three days out of your 6-day work week you get denied lunch throughout the tour. You have to settle for a quick personal to grab a hot dog or some other fast-food because every time you finish your jobs they have 4 more waiting. But you know-it-alls from other districts have no idea how busy it is. You live in 008 but work in sloer districts or a unit where you are clueless to the massive amount of service calls heaped upon 008th district officers. Bitch and moan all you want, but the fact is that 008's manpower has been pillaged to beef up units like TRU and all the units that go along with summer.... bike patrols, summer mobile, fests, etc, etc, etc. You people call 008th district coppers "whiners" yet you have no clue how rediculously busy and under-manned it is. If you think it would be such a wonderful place to work, bid in and show everyone in 008 how it's done, supercop.
"....One day while passing through 008 I saw an on view fight on the street. A large white guy (bust-out) attacked a weel dressed Hispanic guy who was waiting for a bus. I flagged down an 008th District car that was less than 100 feet away from the incident and informed them of what was happening. They drove right to the location and then drove completely past it, turning off at the first available side street. I only wish I had noted their outside number or beat tag; I would have certainly filed a beef...."Questions:Why didn't the victim flag down the R/O's in the beat car if they passed within 100 feet of him?Why didn't YOU take immediate action to help the victim?Have you ever heard of the term "Non-feasance?"If you're a veteran copper, how did you miss all the numbers pasted all over the marked unit? The beast seems to have no problem getting the numbers!Could it be that you gave the wrong location to the dispatcher?Could it be that the idiot civilian dispatcher typed out something different than what you described and the call was dispatched as some kind of bullshit disturbance? (Oh no... THAT never happens!)Could it be that the situation was over and done and the beat car had 3 other jobs in it's stacking to get to?Maybe you've twisted the truth as to the actual facts?Just asking! :-)
FYI for my blue brothers. As someone that was assigned to a federal task force (FBI JTTF) and has recently left. It should be known that there are a bunch of agents (read as wanna-be-cops) that read this site EVERYDAY, and then go around bad mouthing us. Yes, we all know the media trolls the site and are careful not to give them any ammo, the same should be said for the wanna-be's carring fed badges. The feds are also reading. So as Sgt. Esterhouse, from the Hill used to say, "lets be careful out there."
6/18/2006 12:59:49 PM I think you didn't read the post correctly that you are referring to. No dispatcher was called. The poster stated that they passed by the battery and then saw a sqaud car and then told them what was happening. Therefore the squad car did not see what was happening and turned away before having to deal with the situation.Its called reading comprehension, good luck on the Sgts. test, you'll need it.
There's plenty of blind coppers on the job in every district....also called selective vision.

But maybe we should not spread this info around. High moral, troops happy, the ivory tower dictators will try to destroy a good thing. 6/18/2006 07:52:47 AM 008 used to be a great place to work. It had something for everyone.It is a huge district though. I think response times are generally good.
What is happening in 008 is just a by-product of our nitwit mayor refusing to allow beat and district boundaries to be updated, according to the calls for service, as they should have been years ago. The last time that the 008th District was re-beated (and the district boundaries changed), it was probably 99% white.
red neck kenny watt is 008 enough said.........

I police officer too, like Eric-I know how you feel. Stop ruining his legacy!Maria

WE, HISPANICS, HOLD YOU RESPONSIBLE FOR HIS DEATH!!! ERIC WAS MISTREATED BY WHITE POs AND THAT IS CLEARLY RACISM!!!You take the name of a brave policeman and you drag it through the mud for your own disgusting purposes. You use the name of a policeman killed in the line of duty, our friend, someones son, to incite racial hatred and you cannot even spell it right? Is this how you want him remembered?You Hurt for him? We all dont? None of us post disgusting racial filth in his name, none of us but you. Save that for the cross burning adlolph. Hurt some more for dragging his partner into this. She (a hard working and dedicated officer, ask anyone who worked with her) who through no fault of her own has to carry this pain for the rest of her life. You truly sicken me. I have no words for what I think of you. It is clear who the racist is here. You hurt for him? Fuck you. You are not worthy to speak his name. You hurt for him? Keep hurting, now go see a priest and confess that you defamed the name of a great man in order to further your hateful and disgusting goals. When you are done resign your position. In all seriousness, we dont need you or your kind, you hate mongering racist filth. In your heart you know what you are. Maria, you are truly brave and a good person to reply as you did. God bless and keep you. I wish I could be as noble and kind hearted as you. We, who remember Eric as he lived, will never forget you in our prayers.Signed,One who sees at the police as only one color, BLUE!
