Someone Correct Us if We're Wrong

But wasn't there some sort of prohibition on Officers appearing in campaign commercials, campaign literature or political appearances in uniform so it doesn't seem that the Department endorses any certain candidate?

Could someone explain this then?

That appears to be a Chicago Police Sergeant in full uniform appearing on political literature for Congressweasel Rahm Emanuel. But if there's a prohibition in place, this isn't possible, is it? Of course, it's Rahm, the annointed carpetbagger from the Clinton Administration and one of the mayor's boys, so don't expect any sort of reprecussions should this actually be improper. Two sets of rules, don't you know?

Is she missing her tie?

Rahm likes to send out a lot of these mailings. Check out the fine print at the bottom,

"This mailing was prepared, published and mailed at taxpayers expense."

Trivia Question: What is the name of the privilege, that allows members of Congress to send mail without paying for postage?

Hint, it's not the Dan Rostenkowski goes to jail privilege.

As a police officer, and mother of four, I'm a Sgt trying to make Lt by clout! blah blah blah

Speaking of clout, (2) brand new books hitting the shelves of your local library:

"CHICAGO POLICE An Inside View"
By Terry Hillard

"Unbridled Rage"
By Gene O'Shea
(Focuses on the 3 little boys killed on Oct 1955, the Helen Brach case and the Chicago Horse Syndicate. It begins by saying how the case as derailed by the CPD and how "the CPD was one of the most corrupt in the country; mob-connected cops held key positions throughout the dept). This one is a great read so far. Haven't started the Hillard book.

If she's going to do that shit, couldn't she at least have put on her tie? Wasn't another sergeant given suspension time for making a television commercial for him while in uniform (a relative I think)? Have the rules changed?

Hi!

I'm speaking on behalf of our beloved mayor, Senators Dick Durbin and Barack Obama, Gov. Rod Blagojovich, as well as Congressmen Bobby Rush, Jesse Jackson (Jr.), Luis Gutierrez, Danny Davis and my main man Rahm Emanuel.

We are truly blessed to have these noble statesmen as our duly-elected politicians for reform. Like me, their integrity is above reproach.

For an even greater Chicago and Cook County, don't forget to vote for Todd Stroger in November.

I just looked her up on I-Clear. Although she has some honorable mentions she has NO DEPARTMENT AWARDS. So her department ribbons worn above her name plate are as fake as the bullshit in the political newsletter she is on.

Fresh Steal:

The only way you will get felony approval of charges is if you can verify knowledge on the part of the offender.

or...you'll face the old, I got the car from a hype to use for $20.00. I did not think it was stolen.

Knowledge is expressed when the offender makes a statement that he / she knew the auto was a stolen auto. It takes time but it's easy if you have patience.

good luck, at least you're trying and not going for the dime bag bullshit.

Andrews in A/5 is only in his spot because his mommy and daddy use to give Da Mayor free Greek lemon soup at their restaurant. He has not earned his spot as a Commander in his whopping 13year career, so why should any of his Sergeant’s be any different. I feel sorry for the men and women who work as police officer in the districts that A/5 covers if they ever really need help. Most of the old time dicks are retiring out as fast as they can and the rest of good dicks are bidding out. How long is downtown going to keep their eyes shut, it’s time for Andrews to go back busing tables!

once a month a group between 25-40 retired Police officers meet for a breakfast, these officers all work out of the same unit, they are white,Black,Hispanic and other, male and females. The biggest laugh at each and everyone of these breakfast's, are the active Police Officers, who are so judgemental, so self important, and have the audacity to believe that they are the one and only. These old timers worked, when there was no air conditioned cars, no vests, no semi auto weapons allowed. Polictical appointees and clout heavies was the norm. But these guys were able to work with it and work pass it.
All that they had was each other, and the most unique thing about them, they all made it to where some of you will never get...retirement with honor and pride.

Staying on the topic of the chosen amongst us, a friend of mine from HQ filled me in on this little tidbit. I guess all the little bosses (non-exempts) at 35th Street are going to have their nice shinny cars taken away from them. Starting with the Lt’s their unmarked cars will be given to working police units and they will be given marked cars instead. Get out the crying towels, the chosen few will need them soon. Of course as soon as these nice cars get to the various units you can rest assured the bosses there will glob them for themselves. Anyone else hear anything on this issue?

This place is so fucked up.
Someone has got to write a book about this shit. And not the typical retired P.O. authored book that describes all the heroic actions the auhtor took while on the job. Rather, all the political shit that ruins this job.
How can the higher ups sleep at night knowing they are promoting an incompitent fool to lead the troops. When the shit hits the fan, they will be sorry for the choices they have made.

Andrews pretends to be a detective almost as much as he pretends that he is straight. "The ultimate leader is one who is willing to develop people to the point that they eventually surpass him or her in knowledge and ability."

It use to be that the Detective Division relied on its experience from seasoned Detectives, Sergeants, Lieutenants and Commanders to train the up and coming. When you have a Commander that does not have that experience and consistently overrides the decision of his managers the system beaks down. The Detectives have stopped trying to do more because they are tired of being slapped down by Dean. The Lieutenants and Sergeants have been rendered ineffective because the men they manage know that their decision doesn’t matter and that the decision will always be up to Dean and no one else. The supervisors lack the intestinal fortitude to stand up to Dean for what they believe in fear of losing their precious spot or being dumped to midnights. Dean dumps supervisors and detectives with no expectation and no regard for their work, experience, or the personal hardship it may cause; for some personnel this was too much to bear. Dean makes his management decisions based on personal reasons and how it affects only Dean, regardless what it best for the Division or the police officers they serve.

Andrews is not a leader, he expects people to listen and follow because he wears a gold star and not because he has earned their respect for the position he holds. The difference between a good Commander and Dean is; Dean says, Go! – a true boss says, Let’s go!
Andrews cannot expect to hold the loyalty of his detectives when he speaks to them as if they are insignificant. Andrews its time to look and the mirror and see the person you have become and not the god you think you are!

"Clout may get you to the top, but it takes character to keep you there."
