He Gone!

Area 2 D/C Shields called everyone in today and announced Commander Matthews is not Commander of 005 anymore because of an off duty incident in the 019th District. Captain Cynthia White is Acting Commander for the duration. That is all.

UPDATE 1934 hours: BINGO! Tribune published this article on their website less than an hour ago. Did this blog contribute to public knowledge of the event? Did the reporters call for a quote and force the Superintendent's hand? Who knows?!? Who cares?!? The correct thing was done in demoting the Commander. Now, someone better start asking questions as to why an impounded vehicle was released while an unregistered firearm was found within said vehicle. Professional courtesy ends when the people who want courtesy aren't courteous in asking.

And courtesy shouldn't be a short hop and a skip to Official Misconduct - which if a blue shirt did it, he would be charged with such.

Did we make progress or did we just up the ante on racism?

His son got arrested with a gun and when he found out he went charging into 019 and got physical with a few of the brass calling them racists. Good-hope he gets fired and bought up on charges

Wow! Though I did not see it mentioned that he was knocked back to a Lt. Anyone else with that info? Don't be surprised by the spanking anyone gets in the 015 caper if the allegations are found to be sustained.

Not afraid NOT to be anonymous...

OK. Keep in mind this is a blog. Feelings. Oinions. TRY to respect the opinions of others.....except Mr. OLE.

Here's what I have to say. For those of us who are parents. Our kid screws up and we KNOW what that arrest will do to his/her life. We would normally do anything to protect our child. Good or bad. As a parent, my heart feels for him. I don't know him personally and was not there so I don't know how it went down. But, it is sad. IF he did some pushy-shovy, yes, be gone. Now, what about the female brass who interfered some months ago when her kin was taken in. She shoulda got the boot too!

Cyn White? Don't know her but wouldn't want to be in 005 right now after the things I have heard from credible people.

But, makes me wonder...What prompted Phil to level the boom?.. The press coverage?...The little guy on the 5th floor not needing another bad mark?...I could go on and on but, was this a sudden swell of doing the right thing?...I doubt it.

Who is going to be the Commander? That is the question. Will captain White get the promotion or will it go to another?

White is only a boss because she flipped on her coworkers so she would not go to jail. She was promised a career and she got one.

There will be a real problem if White is promoted. She will be able to do what ever she wants- right or wrong, legal or illegal- and get away with it. She is feared by all. She can claim harassment due to her past actions against her coworkers. She would always win.

I hope they put someone there who can just be a boss and not promote a political or racial agenda.

Have no desire to say Sorry for my comments. I Don't see Cline's decision as having ball's. Let's call it doing his job. Where have we made progress, I ask? We have a single incident of a boss's out of control and the man behind the curtain makes a switch. We have plenty of broom's and dust Pan's throughout the city. Been around far too long to be impressed by a simple single digit equation. Wondering without being impressed, what the full formula will equate too. The job's legit.

Now we just need someone to spank ADS Day for giving an illegal order to return the vehicle without the impound. If it was anyone else that car would be gone and any other PO would have to pay $1,500 to get their ar back. No wonder morale is at an all time low. The exempts just crap on all the blue shirts and nothing ever happens to them. Hold them accoutnable like the rest of us.

There is a sudden shortage of PAR forms in the 005th District. No one knows why (yeah right). A 18 wheeler is headed to the district with more, but no one knows for sure if that will be enough. The 005th District will henceforth be known as Dodge City. If you see her, Dodge her, and tumbleweeds can be seen rolling though the empty employee lot.

I noticed some people talking about profession curtsy. The coppers who locked this jag ball up were 100% correct. Not only did they take a handgun off the streets they probably stopped him from committing a homicide. He was on his way to obviously shoot someone after a disturbance for gods sake! Both of which are the highest priorities of this department according to cline. Lets just say the coppers stop him, find a gun, and because he dropped his clout whore fathers name they let him go. 10 minutes later he shoots the 4 people he was arguing with on the corner. Don't think for a second that daddy wouldn’t have blamed the coppers for not doing anything and have them fired and sent to jail.

For those who are unaware, Matthews is no Prince. His assignment in Personel was handling the Personal Concerns Program. His current position no doubt comes from moving along paper work for clout heavy babies, while burying paper work of those in disfavor.
You are notified by letter of being put in personal Concerns. At that point you are lead to believe the clock is ticking on the one year duration you are to be in the program. However, you find out later that you are not in the program until a visit by then Sgt. Matthews.
There were those at ARPS (callback) AKA: The land of crazys, criminals, and cripples. who were notified by letter and the good Sgt. would come 7 months after the letter, informing you that the clock started to click once he met you to tell you in person you are in personal concerns program. On top of it he would come one week and speak to one person and then come a couple of weeks later to sere notice to another. Meanwhile both had been notified months ago of being put in the program, so why two trips? Must have liked going to dinner on Taylor St.
I see it takes less time to get to 019 from 005 then to get to 2111 Lexington from 3500 S Michigan.
Screw him and his family, he sure didn't care about the P.O.s and thier families who he was screwing around, sullying thier reputations.
Trust me when I tell you brothers and sisters in blue, you are nothing more then a cog to exempt rank members.
When a guy can stalk female employees and get hired back; another Infringe on a lawful arrest and not get stripped and psyched; Test positive for cocaine and retain his position; Sell weed to undercover agents and give up thier fathers co workers rising to promotion; and on and on and on.... You have only one conclusion to make....Watch your partners back, watch your own, trust no one related to bosses and believe nothing they tell of the good that will come your way if you are a go along guy/gal.
You fall in love with the Chicago Police Department, they dont fall in love with you.

Exempts down at 35th St do not forget this kind of shit and I still would watch my back if I was one of the coppers involved. You fucking people are so hard up to feel good about this fucked up department and these fucked up bosses you forget all the shit that happens everyday. Come on grow the fuck up and stop the hero worship shit. Yeah great move Phil, Cynthia White as the acting commander. What a fucking joke one mutt replaces another.

Thank You to the On Duty Desk Sgt and W/C at the time of incident. Sounds like you guys did everything you could do to protect your guys, including attempts to difuse the situation and you both acted as professionally as you possibly could based on what you were faced with. Thank you, too, to the Superintendent for his prompt attention to this matter. I can only hope he follows up with disciplinary action, including demotion, of the the On Duty Street Deputy who responded.
On a side note, knowing Sgt. A.H., I am suprised Matthews made it out of 019 in one piece that night. I worked with Sgt. A.H. for a short period of time in patrol and have always found him to be a stand up guy, not afraid of confrontation with anyone, and someone who always has your back.
Thanks to everyone involved for making the troops proud and restoring morale, even if for a short period of time.

Matthews is no gang sympathizer.
He's a decent family man who has provided a good, loving home for his wife and children, as most of you have. And we all know sometimes our children don't turn out to be all they could be, regardless of the priviledges and opportunities we've afforded them.
Matthews is in just such a situation. And any parent would be upset to see their child, grown or otherwise, cuffed up in a station with obvious signs of having been roughed up. Things were said that I'm sure both sides weren't proud of. But dumping a decent man and a good Boss out there in 005 from the exempt ranks
was quite harsh, considering the totality of what occurred. No one was asked to bury the UUW incident. No one was asked to allow young Matthews to get a pass.
No one was asked to lie on an arrest or case report. I've been around long enough to have seen far worse behavior by many other bosses. I think what's happened to Matthews is shameful.

[if i had any...]it will be very interesting to see how this all plays out in the end. i agree that it is wise to keep your eyes open, because, who knows how matthews will bounce back. the deities know that their are multitudes of people on this job that shouldn't be here,not to mention carrying a gun.hmmmm, come to think of it, i probably shouldn't be carrying a gun, but i digress... anyhow, kudos, saludos, scc and anyone else responsible for this most interesting place in the blogosphere. i am definitely looking forward to more entertaining reading here.

ADS S.D. is where she is today courtesy of past Supt. Hillard. She was over-promoted back when she got her sergeant's stripes. Having her in a command position is simply a disgrace. This is the same person who ordered detectives to respond to the scene of a "police shooting" involving a DOG and demanded that weapons be taken away from the officers who were involved in the incident.

Just exactly how many chances does she get before she gets stripped of the eagles?

...Maybe a thread about the lieutenants who were transfered totally by suprise. Who are they, are they any good, what can we expect from them...

Expect them to be short-timers at their new locations. They have the seniority to bid out as soon as openings are posted.

ADS day is consistently wrong about police related at least she's consistent. And she has the inability to admit or face a mistake, so pretty much she's the absolute worse person you could have in her position. I like her goofy make-up in her department photo though. Yup, dumb, insecure, arrogant...but she looks good doing it!

I think what's happened to Matthews is shameful.

And what about the fact that, according to what's been said here, he laid hands on two on-duty P.O.'s and an on-duty sergeant?

I once had the occasion to respond to a 10-1 where I witnessed a uniformed P.O. that I was responsible for down on the ground, with a guy in civilian clothes on top of him, pummeling him. Turns out, the guy in C.D. was an off-duty P.O. He accused the on-duty P.O. of "verbally assaulting" him. Unfortunately, due to the minority status of the off-duty, gang banging P.O., he is still on the job. He shouldn't be. It still sickens me just to think about it. Anytime someone who is on this job lays hands on an on-duty P.O., they should be gone.

Seems I was at some of the same type of incidents. All happened in 015. Interesting I actually saw the on duty P.O.'s take time for some of these incidents. Race card was always played and it sure worked for the off duty P.O.'s. Yeah this fucking job is all legit.

A link to the video of Commander Matthews wife castrating him on TV. Dont they have supervisor training for family members? Things like, dont do drugs; dont carry guns; dont say "you know who my father is"? Especially, dont talk to the press about what your old man did or didnt do.

Matthews did NOT retire, nor did he resign. He is still employed by the CPD, detailed to a position in Hdqtrs.

Cpt. White is the acting D/C in 005. She just might keep the job this time around. For those of you who work in 005, you already know what she's like. For those of you assigned to 1st watch on 005, you'll just see 3 or 4 more hours of her.

Who is gonna be the new Commander of 005? What about Lt. Carter in
003, or Lt. Ball? Both great guys.

On the Dog shooting incident, ADS Day not only ordered the officers weapons inventoried, she asked for a round table. No civilians injured, no P.O.s injured, no damage to property(other than the dog) but a ROUND TABLE??!

In spite of the incident, Matthews was a good Commander, good for the working police. He is a fool to let his ADULT kid constantly manipulate him into covering for him, it allows him to be a piece of shit. Matthews should have gotten the boot for acting as his piece of shit son would, but to put CW in his spot is shows how stupid the brass of this department is. Every working cop in 005 finally were able to stop paying for her past sins when Matthews arrived, and now once again, as when Kelly was there, that fat fuck of a captain will do what ever her little heart desires, at the expense of working coppers. What a sad day for the department. And who will ultamately be held accountable? The coppers from 019 who did nothing more than their job. It's sad that this department is run by morons.

Wanna know what's worse about 005 now? The district is now divided according to race. The desk bunnies on 3rd Watch are adding fuel to the fire by passing a petition around for people to sign in favor of the commander.

Guess what happens if you don't sign and you're're labeled "racist." Guess if you're black and you don't sign you're a sellout according to them.

005th District is and has always divided by race. Why does this incident make any difference? It is unfortunate too. That district needs working police but they get scared off by bosses who do not deserve to be where they are or by fear of being labled racist because they lock up black people. There really needs to be a change of attitude amongst those that work there. The attitude of the bad guys are on the street and the good guys where blue. Good luck 005.

There's a new LT on days in 006
who they say is really whipping things into shape on that watch!
Odds are that he'll be the next
DC of Pullman. I've heard he isn't afraid to get ugly to get the dogs into shape! Watch out,

Are you talking about Lt GE? He is a good guy, and will help out the working police, but that is the main reason he will never get a command. He can sometimes be a little nuts, listen to some of the stories about him (some are even true), but if the fit hits the shan and you are in the right he is the supervisor that you want to respond onscene or do the paper.
