The New Euphemism

Instead of coming right out and telling everyone that people are hired on the basis of who their relatives happen to be, the Cook County State's Attorney Office has come up with the following explanation for overlooking the criminal records of those they hire:
  • Teri Sanchez sponsored her niece's employment, but she was not involved in the hiring process, Gorman said. Teri Sanchez also sponsored Rodriguez, her niece's husband.
You got that? It wasn't nepotism. It was "Sponsoring!"

We hear there is a blue ribbon panel researching similar euphemisms to cover up for the "merit" selection process that currently plagues the Police Department. Possible explanations include "earned," "politically reliable," "diversity insurance," and "well, I knew his daddy when..."

Whenever someone gets around to investigating the "merit" part of CPD promotions, the first place to look is at the paperwork/files; but, keep in mind that many of the exempts are now smart enought o kep their comments "verbal" and not on paper; so, maybe it's time to get folks in before a federal grand jury........

Your past FOP president Bill Nolan sold us out on merit promotions years ago. A couple of lawsuits were filed in the past but went absolutely nowhere.
Now if a few kids were hired fresh on the job without any of the current requirements then you'd have a beef but as it is, bohica.

Off topic..BUT IMPORTANT! I'm sorry to report that after working until 3:00am July 3rd I woke up around 1:30pm today only to hear some asshole screaming outside. I then went to the window and saw this jagoff waving a huge Italian flag outside my balcony! I became enraged! This asshole, who I have met before was celebrating the Italians defeating the Germans in the world cup! IT'S THE 4TH OF JULY!!!! This clown was born in America and would rather celebrate the world cup over the 4TH of JULY!!! It's sad that the Polish community can celebrate for days, the Puerto Rican community gets a whole neighborhood to celebrate for a week, but we can't even have one day for America! Many have given their lives for what we celebrate on July 4th! But we have a few assholes that know nothing about sacrifice and would rather celebrate the Italians defeating the Germans!!! If I weren't the Police I would rip that Italian flag ouf of his fucking hand!! God Bless America!!!!

the speeches by OBAAAM and Blogo see our leaders shit all over themselves trying to line up jobs for post retirement.

I had a anstolishly eye popping exprience when I vistited OEC on Monday. So of you may know this already but I could not believe how the OEC people can track our every movement. Cars are now being installed with GPS and I the dispatcher showed my how she could track every car with GPS in 011. She could also bring up the speed they were going a complete history of where the car has been for its entire tour. It was unbelivalble. She then showed my how she can bring up information on how long it takes a beat car to respond to its job after being dispatched a call.

Boys and girls be careful out there. They know everything about where you are and where you have been.

Be safe and remeber that we have to back each other up.

If it makes you feel better while the Italians were celebtrating their victory, they were also cheering for our Independence Day (4th of July)in Rome. The Italians were celebrating a World Cup victory. Unlike the Pol's PR's etc who do the same shit every year this happens every four years. I could assure you many Italians were celebrating the 4th of July also. I for one am a proud Italian with a large AMERICAN flag outside my front door. Have a nice day and most importantly Stay Safe.

The Mysterious Death Of An Enron Exec

CBS) It may be the biggest outstanding mystery in the Enron story: the death of Cliff Baxter, a former top Enron executive. He'd just agreed to testify to Congress in the Enron case. A congressional source tells CBS News that Baxter wasn't a target in the probe, he was to provide evidence against others.

But on the morning of January 25th he was found in his car - shot dead.

Police were criticized for calling it a suicide before investigating, so they kept the case open. The fact that it's still open more than two months later has made the Cliff Baxter case prime fodder for murder conspiracy theories, reports CBS News Correspondent Sharyl Attkisson.

I think the Cook County States Attorney's Office has hired a few token colored people in their investigation division. Mostly they do the food runs and misc. errands. I really don't think they do any real investigations or are trusted to do any.

As soon as they get their suspended or revoked drivers licenses fixed, they may hit the street. But the office will have to supply them cell phones because theirs have been cut off for non-payment.

When POS Fred Rice introduced hero Gregory Jaglowski to the press upon his release from the hospital he stated Greg was being meritoriously promoted to detective. But off to the side he then told Gerg he was actually being promoted to youth officer. POS Fred Rice went on to explain that the press might not understand what a youth officer was, or did, so this just made it simpler during the press conference. Your right. Not to many real hero's get anywhere.

To be an S/A investigator they want you to be a Sgt in the city or sticks. Then the Chief judge makes the appointment based on your political affiliation. Divine has a say but the jobs are doled out by the Chief judge-neutrallity/bs/ thru the political party process. These are the same bastards who want merit judges. They had two openings at the SA Investigators office 783 applied and the 19th ward filled both positions. When you are retired and served with a subpeana, you are not served by retired CPD officers but by retired State troopers in the office. They cant run the expressways but locate our retired dicks. My uncle got in thru the eighth ward even though he is lilly white and lives in the 13th ward. U work ten years and get a fifteen year county pension with free health insurance to 62.

Mexico Pres. Election update:

Obrador Boxes and ballots found in garbage dump from 3 precinct's.

No true tally yet from Sunday's vote.

“El que nada debe, nada teme,” is a popular Mexican expression: He who owes nothing, fears nothing.

If they are so sure they “won,” being Fox's guy Caledron why do they oppose a full recount?

At stake: criminal penalties for IFE bureaucrats if it is found that ballots were tampered with or “disappeared.” That is one fear. The other – justified or not – is who wins the presidency of the Republic of Mexico.

If the IFE tries to rush to judgment and declare a winner prior to a full recount, Mexico will explode. The IFE, the PAN, Fox and Calderón are thus playing with fire.

Also, what about the ODPO that got Battered up there, they should ignore that too 'cause it was probably some upstanding coppers kid who got his 17 or 18 year old ass drunk with mommy and daddy's help....

Coppers are definitely becoming the problem in 016 (and I'm sure 022 too) that my little Johnny didn't do anything. Even when another copper witnesses the offense and informs the on duty, daddy says that guy is lying.... NICE EXAMPLE for the kids...

They do not park the car to relax either. You are lucky my do-nothing ass is not sitting in that car because I would be sitting at an undisclosed location until a job was dispatched to me and then I would take my time getting to that job. I had to leave 016 because those coppers take everything just a little bit too seriously and are always turning a molehill into a mountain or just doing some plain silly stuff.

To the 025th district copper:

First of all, fireworks are illegal. Second of all, think about your statement, 500 people, don't you think that is a little unsafe. You are missing several points here. It's obviously all about you. The park closes at 23:00, after that enough is enough. I know your going to tell me it was before 23:00 but I'm saying it doesn't stop the either. Do you ever pick up your mess when your done because most people don't and then it ends up blowing over to our houses. Also, I don't know about you but I have kids that cry to me that they can't sleep because your little show going on all night. Lastly, if you feel the need to blow off fireworks and aggravate both the working coppers and the people that live by the park then why don't you blow them off in your own backyard. Oh I know because then you would actually have to clean up instead of leaving your shit just laying there like the westside mutt you are. Better yet why don't you tell me where you live and I'll be sure to visit you next year with some friends. Lay off 016 I'm glad they finally did some police work for the good people. Kudos to you 1631 and 1690. Keep up the good work, we appreciate it. By the way I DO NOT WORK IN 016.

Edison Park as rapidly changed from a quiet, cosmopolitan community of modest, yet well built homes to a vinyl sided Irish ghetto. The place sucks. Hillbilly turkey fireman everywhere and are the stupid. We're thinking of moving to Lakeview or Lincoln Square. Oh, and where is the alderman as Harlem Ave. and Northwest Hwy are being re-settled with subsidized housing? Five hundred assholes in a school lot should have been chased from the school back to Canaryville, or Cragin. You woudn't see this in Glenview or Park Ridge. And they have the nerve to talk about duke.

I live in 016 and can say that PO Hollie(?),bt 1631 2nd watch is the only decent Officer on that beat.The F/4 on 3rd watch doesn't do jack shit. If she and her partner ever got their asses out out of their car and did their job, we the off duty coppers would not complain. I have personally witnessed them in inaction after having identified myself as a po to handle a disturbence. They are good if you need a parker written-anything else forget about it!Now on 1st watch, Can't find them so can't comment on their actions or non-actions.

Don't know the 1st Watch officers names on 1631, but when they aren't detailed out or covering the wagon, I have seen them around... That being said, seeing them and watching them actually do something besides drive by are two different things.

State's Atny Inv. job became political only after Mr. Devine was elected. Prior to that under Mr. O'Malley, all hireing decisions were made by the 3 top bosses there, all retired cpd guys.
Basically they took homicide dets

After Devines election it all became totaly political
