Rumor Mill in Overdrive

If anyone caught the Channel 5 News tonight, the number of PO's allegedly stripped over at Special Operations is up to 4. A sergeant is also under house arrest and a detective associated with the team is driving a desk at HQ. And according to our moles, it's only going to get bigger - as in we aren't even to the halfway point yet. Stormy weather ahead boys and girls.

Channel 5 and the Sun Times don't have links up yet - we will link first thing in the morning when they update their websites.

Standard disclaimers - no names unless indictments are publicly released - and maybe not even then.

UPDATE: SunTimes link.
UPDATE #2: Channel 5 has the video story on their main page, but no link to last night's story. The Channel 5 webpage sucks for timely news.
UPDATE #3: Channel 5 has fixed their links. Channel 7 also has more of the same.
UPDATE #4: Tribune coverage.

If it was aggressive policing, this sucks for everyone involved. Channel 5 made it seem it was a clear case of greed...stealing money from bad and good guys. If that's true I feel a little better about the system.

And you can bet your sweet behinds that the "Teflon ADS" will NOT be one of the guys in trouble. Even though, let's see, he's been a P.O., then a SERGEANT, then a LIEUTENANT, then the COMMANDER of the unit when this shit was going down. Must be nice to have a permanant coating of Pam vegetable spray all over you.

S.O.S. was and currently is a F***ing joke. Anybody that I know that's been there or came from there is a total stroke. It seems to be the consensus among all or at least most other Department Members. They walk and talk like their shit doesn't stink and that they are God's gift to Law Enforcement. Are you kidding me? It's designed for whining B**ches who don't want to work the Beat in a real District and handle radio calls like the Majority of the Department does. They have high opinions of themselves that isn't shared by the majority of the Department. If you don't see it, maybe you are one of them. Eberybody knows this and easily sees this. Maybe it wasn't like that when it was S.O.G. but since the inception of S.O.S., the unit has been comprised of serious fools.

Let's all donate a bottle of Vaseline and send it to S.O.S. via department mail. The rest of them need to be sent to the Districts and do what other Police Officers do; it's called "Police Work". Maybe then they could earn their way to the District level Tactical or Gang Team. It's time for the rest of these children to be adequately supervised. "Play Time" is over and they could thank their "esteemed" colleagues for ruining what should be a good thing. Oh, I'm sure they'll be thanked by buying a fundraiser ticket to help pay legal costs. Yea, let's give the theives money to help pay for their lawyer. Did they ever give you a peice of the pie when they were cutting it up? What a great idea! Don't come near me trying to sell a ticket for any one of these guys that gets charged. Anybody that buys a ticket for them, might as well be sucking their d**ks.

A story floats around from the old timers that PhatPhil when he was a patrolman assigned to DEA, with the assistance of Hanhardt, was caught by the FBI.
In exchange for his freedom he set up the "Marquette 10".
Could a future Superintendent of Police be behind this incident also?

Whatever these SOS coppers did is between them, God, and the court system.

Right there o the spot get a day off. Be as legit as you can and get a day off, but rob, steal, burlarize, it takes how f*ckin long to investigate. NO that doesnt do anything towards morale. I would really love to know what brought this SOS saga to a head, I find it hard to believe it was through the bosses unless outside pressure was applied. Good luck and God Bless Im leaving this job soon with no regrets. PS keep putting young officers in positions that they feel pressure to accomodate bosses.

I was not around when the Marquette 10 were prosecuted but again I can only relay the rumor regarding PhatPhil's involvement.

I was in Area 5 when PhatPhil was the Commander. He had Harhardt's picture displayed on the wall with a personal enscribtion. He also would meet the gentleman for lunch frequently.

When the news media broke the story about Hanhardt being under investigation the picture came down quickly. So much for loyalty.

And you guys are calling Cline a snitch? Look inside your heart first if it ain't blue get off the job cause you are gonna run, cry when the real shit hits the fan. Hey guess what? Drug dealers make false accusations of police taking there money! Its the best way to get the police to stop messing with ya. They know no cop wants a money beef and the Media plays right into their hands. Read the paper, the city paid out $80,000 for the lawsuits but they don't tell you there is no admission of guilt on behalf of the officers or that they payoff everyone literally everyone who files a lawsuit against the city. This policy always makes us look bad. That is the whole point of having the complainant sign the affidivits. You know the other policy the city is fighting????
Hey SCC if you find out a copper was stealing from the Memorial fund and pocketing money (and you confirm this is a fact)you have to put his name out there for us.

The police downgraded charges to misdemeanor because they couldn't prove she was the intended target. Let Phil know that every day we (the police) are looking worse and worse.

Anyone who says anything bad about a brother or sister police officer, especially in a public forum like this, blows.

Go back and asked the hundred or so career criminals I put away for tall time in my twenty years on the job whether I was nice to them when I arrested them.

Asked them in a leading fashion if I stole money or drugs off them or in any way mistreated them.

WTF do you think those scum bag, jagoffs are going to say?

They didn't like me when I placed their maggot infested carcasses into prison, and they don't like me now.

And if they could even up the score by trick bagging me with lies I know that they would love it.

Investigate me or you in that fashion and you would have that dried up hag Carol Marin saying, "A mostly white band of decorated officers are alleged to have home invaded, and stolen from arrestees" about us.

Think for one moment. Has any citizen every lied about your activities?

I know that they have about me, and other officers to my firsthand knowledge.

Just because it is alleged doesn’t make it so. Just because it is in the paper or on the TV doesn’t mean it is true.

CPD officers of all people should understand this and back you fellow officers all the way. God forbid that you are ever put in the trick bag like this.

Go ahead and pander to the media whores by putting spurious bs on this cursed site.

God Bless those SOS officers and their families in this time of trouble for them.

And if I ever see Carol Marin on a 10-1 pulling some violent offender off me or some other cop I will apologize to her for calling her a "hag". Until then she, and all of those media jackals can bite me.

I back my fellow police officers to the end.

That is the most played out bunch of shit! By "working police" you mean coppers willing to break every rule to get what they want, be it an arrest, a court date or maybe some street peel. I've been the "working police" for 18 years and have very few CR numbers. And you know what? The ones I have gotten, I deserved!

There is a big difference between acting like a professional while still working, and acting like a lawless thug while claiming that you are working for a means to an end!

You can claim all the bullshit you want about being the working police, but everyone here knows that anyone who racks up 30-40 CR's a year ( all not sustained as usual ) and has had FIVE, that's right FIVE fucking Federal lawsuits, something ain't right with that person.

Just like with shitheads on the street, where there is smoke there is fire and turning your back to it doesn't help those of us who have some pride left in this profession. YOu guys thumping your chests rallying about how these great coppers are getting screwed have either never worked with them, or maybe ARE working with them, know what I mean? Because I have worked in that unit in the past, and if you told me they had tried to rob Fort Knox, I'd believe it! The great J.F. would steal from his grandma and blame it on his own mother. No honor. None.

Fuck J.F.! He tainted everyone he's ever touched, and now he's bringing down a whole unit. Let him rot. Anyone surprised by this is either blind or completely retarded.

I've worked in 6 different Districts and several Units, including SOS. Let me tell you something "wet behind the ears", every unit has its J**offs, every unit has great workers, and then theres a bunch that fall in there somewhere in between. SOS is no different, with the exceptiuon that most fall more towards the worker end of the scale. To this day, even with this current fiasco, I'd gladly work with 80% of those guys and gals who are very hard workers trying to do the right thing day in day out. So kindly shut your face, quit your b****ass wineing, and do some work. Of course your the greatest cop that worked the street and obviously if you are not in the unit, then they must "comprised of serious fools". Give me a break.

Feds listen to them also, especially when their kids, who were born here, can speak ENGLISH! Another sorry day for the CPD. Understandibly, lots of exempts running for cover away from the stench of this current scandal, which will undoubtably snare even more dummies before it's given a proper burial. Hopefully, if SOS survives, they'll get better Sgts. up there who will put a stop to the nonsense that has been so prevalent up on the 3rd floor

I was there, in 010, during the whole thing. From start to finish. I knew all the guys. I locked up some of the dope dealers who accused them. Cline was never, ever there or involved. Never saw him.

Next, if you are sooooooooooooo disgusted working in what ever chairborne position you have in Area Five, quit. Get lost. Get off of this job. Guys like you should never have been hired in the first place.

All you guys wory too much about a lot of nothing. Just do what you are supposed to do. Stop the whining and complaining and bragging. None of the real police left on this job want to here it. Save it for the Club girls you never can get to go home with you.

Again, FUCK S.O.S. and the ones that stick up for this unit that is a facade. "Elite" Unit? The only thing elite about it is their elitist egos; who we all know have no merit to them.
As far as the media goes, yea; they get their stories fucked all the time but; behind the media stories and the stories of "these guys" prior to this all breaking out has some validity to it. Don't tell me any of you guys didn't hear that these guys were up to no good years ago? As far as an arresstees opportunity to trick you out and falsely allege that you beat him or took his money; there has to be amounts of corroborating factors to back it up especially if they are to be charged with such. It's not just someone's word that will convict you let alone have you charged with such. Wake the fuck up! Yea, this is all a conspiracy against these guys! Please! Anybody that thinks there is no merit to these allegations is so caught up with backing their brothers in arms. These guys aren't and weren't your brothers. They may have just as well ripped off your own family and not thought twice about violating their rights.

The Eleventh Commandment states Thou shalt not get caught. This stuff is nothing new and is not confined to SOS. People all over this job are running all kinds of scams. Now, what I do not understand is why so many people are so mad about it?

What, you did not get your end? These guys and everyone else who is scamming violated the one rule you should never, ever violate. The rule is so secret, it is not even printed in the Rules and Regs.

It is the stupid rule. They were dumb, stupid, retarded morons. Why get mad? The did it to themselves. Of course some of the fault lies with all of you guys who kept telling SOS guys to go fuck themselves. They finally did.

YOU KNOW YOU'RE ABOUT TO GET JAMMED UP WHEN:

You wake up hung-over in a seedy motel, naked, with your genitals freshly shaved, a ball-gag in your mouth, a bottle of tequila crazy-glued to your hand, your service weapon emptied on the floor next to a puddle of someone else's blood...
Suddenly someone outside the door yells:
POLICE DEPARTMENT! SEARCH WARRANT!!!!!!

You're referred to as "The Police Officer Formerly Known As...."

You meet one of the guys right out of the Academy and he says, "Hey, didn't I see your picture in the newspaper?"

You start saying the Policeman's Prayer....
"God, Please let me get away with this and I'll never ever ever ever ever do it again!!"

I have advocated from day one on this job not doing anything. WHy would you jeapordize everything you have by doing any work. Work only leads to law suits and indictments. It puts you on the radar map. Just write movers, curfews, and case reports. Doing police work is nothing but trouble in the making. This is a good job, a well paying job. It is not worth losing. If you make a lot of arrests, get involved in physical altercations, or are around too much money long enough, you will pay an aweful price. You will lose everything you have, including your freedom.

Do the least and you do the least harm to your self.

Requiem for 04:17:30PM.
Indeed, any person afforded the protections of the United States Constitution is innocent until proven guilty.
...On the other hand..there are safe(or perhaps reasonable)wagers, and there are fool's errands. (in the parenthetical alternative, a fool and his money are fortunate to have been placed in one place at one time at all:-)) The Government's penchant for the pedantic,dry but thoroughly comprehensive approach to law enforcement is well known. Add to this a willingness to expend treasure trove after treasure trove to assure victory- coupled with an alien (to the CPD) patience to wait...and wait...and wait..and all the while the prey is moving closer, providing ever more to the increasing, ever more overwhelming weight of evidence.
I ask you 04:17:30PM, what sort of wager would this be? A fool's, or a friend's?

Fat Phil & "outfit" Hanhardt.
Ok all of you Fat Phil supporters are you going to tell us now that Fat Phil didn't know that Hanhardt played for both sides when he was on the job? Or was it just a coincidence when Hanhardt was the Chief of Detectives that the D would only be allowed to work on an outfit hit for less than 24 hours and then it was ordered suspended.
The story is that Fat Phil didn't want to get the CR # himself about the M-10
so he ran to the feds.
I would applaud him for his courage to do so if the M-10 were truly dirty cops but Fat Phil's lack of character points to the true reason. It was done to better himself with the Feds.
This SOS scandal is going to bust wide open and take down Fat Phil's smoke and mirror show and he will resign in shame ala Matt the Rat.

OK let's look at Phil and the Marquette 10 (Derango, Ambrose, guide, Haas, Eatman, Pena, Smentek, Bauer, Lowery and Gang Crimes guy Desimone). Phil was a tact sgt in 10, leaves to go to Narco and takes down the dope dealers Milton Kelly, Green Smith and CW Wilson, all with dope operations in 10. Coincidental or is it because a Tribune columnist named Bob Weidrich was writing daily columns about the dope in 10 stuff, ala Kass' style. After being arrested the dope dealers complain to the feds about the police. Perhaps Phil was just doing a good job, or was he covering the bases, when they started to complain about the police, him included. Didn't Phil and the primary US Attorney on the case Schweitzer have an altercation in the hall at the Federal building, where Schweitzer pointed at Phil and said "I'm coming after you next", Phil's response, "take your best shot counselor". Is this a case of a prosecutor knowing whats going on, covering his informants tracks or a battle of egos. Nevertheless the animosity continues to exist between the two until this day, with the former AUSA writing a letter to Daley, urging him not to name Phil supt.

Be careful how much you defend these guys - at least one of the f*******g "dope dealers" who's home they invaded was another off-duty copper with his wife, brother, sister-in-law, and children present. When ODPO tried to call for a supervisor they manhandled him and handcuffed him and his wife and tore up the house before leaving when a supervisor finally showed up.

Each one of these guys has been sued in Fed Ct. 3-4 times and usually together. All kinds of bell should have been going off for a long time.

All you guys talk about the Marquette ten like you were there. It happened well over twenty years ago. I was there.

What realllly happened? CW and Co. figured our a way to eliminate their competition after CW got nailed by DEA (possibly Cline involved). He became an informant and as each one of his competitors went down, he took over their operations along with his partners.

The DEA got wise to this when all of his info dried up and naturally they came after him. He cried about how he was paying off cops to the US Attorney. Dan Webb and Schweitzer, who really hates cops, had the FBI investigate with DEA. Voila! Indictments.

No one ratted out or got CRs or anything else. It was a case of a dope dealer to smart for himself and cop hating AUSAs.

The case almost did not go to court. The newly elected Reagan's US attorney, who liked the police, did not want the case prosecuted. Webb and Schweitzer flew to DC and cried, pissed and moaned. They threatened to take the case to the media. They threatened to tell the media how they had spent something like 14million dollars on this and they were not going to be allowed to prosecute and all that money would be wasted. They won out.

After the trial, Webb "left the US Atty's office and went into private practice. There was some story that he had molested one of his kids or step kids, but it was hushed up.

The cop hater Sweitzer was transferred to Boston. This guy was so bad, he even hated Federal Agents, including the FBI. He butted some heads in Boston and was told that if he kept hating law enforcement, especially his own Federal agents there would be a new Boston Tea Party and he would be the tea. He disappeared from public life and nothing is know about him since.

My question is why is a twentysomething year old so fascinating to most of you who were in diapers when it happened? Oh yeah, gotta blame Cline for something.

Why is that? Because they are (S)ons (O)Of (S) Supervisors, that's why.

I think they should all be sent back to Patrol..working Beat car's in the Districts.

Let them answer the radio and handle mundane jobs..just like the majority of us! Make them SWIPE in and out and only take a 30 minute lunch..just like the majority of us!

They need to come back down to earth and stop with the arrogance. Let them pay a small price for the misdeeds of their co-workers. After all..that would be FAIR to all the honest, hardworking, under appreciated, non-clout, beat coppers....which by the way, is the majority of us!!!!

Why are some of you guys trying to defend the thieves from SOS? When the thieves from 007th district were outed in January 2006, no one on this site were stroking them by saying innocent until proven guilty. I see the only difference here is.....I don't even have to speak it. The article in the paper yesterday sounded almost identical to the article in January 2006 with "DINK" and his suckers.

Ya, the US attorney's hated coppers, out of all the hundreds of names in the IAD Marquette 10 file, they managed to charge those specific ones. So what is the truth? Is Phil a government informant, or if Marquette was the 11th District would he have been part of the Marquette 11? Enquiring minds want to know.

As a long time supervisor, I guarantee you that the Dept. would rather dump a supervisor than have that supervisor expose this kind of shit. . . further the department won't protect a supv. who takes action against this kind of wrongdoer. You go after one of these guys and all of a sudden your getting transferred to 002 or 005 or worse for no other reason than you might be exposing an on-going investigation or more likely a boss' kid or nephew who's on the take. . .

I work in SOS and have to say there a few pompous asses there. I go to work everyday and make a pinch. Thats all. Sometimes my team and I get a good pinch, or are able to stumble onto something good. I don't walk around other districts and swagger like a superstar, I don't talk down to other po's and act like my shit don't stink. I don't walk into other districts and act like I own the place. I would be ignorant to say there are those in the unit that don't do the before mentioned things, but not all of us do that. I am not a son of a supervisor, however I do have friends and family on the job. That combined with a good work ethic and good arrest record before I went there got me to SOS. I did have to fill out an application, as does everyone that goes there. I did have to interview with the commander. I actually work TARA on my day off for time and a half and enjoy riding on jobs and doing the mundane paper jobs as you put it. Don't judge all of us by a few that have been accused of of wrongdoings and don't judge all of us by those that act like they run the place when they walk into your station. I like doing the job that I have and I am fortunate to be where I am. It is your right to say what you want about the unit, actually I am amused by most of what you say, because It doesn't apply to the team that I work on and to myself. It does bother me because they are my co-workers and I wish I could do something to change their attitude. Be mindful, there is a difference between cocky and confident, be able to discern which is which before you make a judgement on someone. Be safe out there!

Bottom line.....live right, do the right thing, own up to your mistakes and be a man or woman....or whatever. Good coppers gone bad? Bad guys with badges? Tempation? Fate? Greed? Stupidity?? All the above?!? Live, Learn and don't make the same mistakes. "Those who do not learn from history are damned to repeat it." You older guys teach the fng how to do it right, you fng's...open your ears and listen to what the old timers are telling you, but most all watch your back and your partners back because there are monsters and boogey men in the world and they would put a bullet in your back as soon as look at you.

If any of you asshats did your homework and quit beliveing everything you here,you would see that all these people getting stripped have one thing in common-they all worked on the same team led by the same Sgt at one time or another. There are about 12 other teams in SOS where the Police officers have done nothing wrong and continue to do good police work. Not everyone here has a relative on the job so you can take that "sons of supervisors" and stick it up your ass! There are some of us here that couldn't care less what happens because we have done nothing wrong but yet all we her is "fuck SOS" so how can you expect us not to have a little attitude towards other coppers who are talking shit. My question to those involved in the shit talking is next time we are in your district,how about coming up to us in person and ask any questions you might have or make some of these comments or accusations? I will say that some of my fellow workers have relatives on the job and yes some of these guys have swollen heads/chests and think that they are gods gift to the CPD-but also we know who they are and either aviod them or laugh at them just the same. They too are asshats! My point is, don't judge the whole unit because one group is under the ever watchful eye of IAD/CPD/CCSA or whomever. It's not up to me or you to judge them(unless you get called for jury duty if it goes that far).If they take a plea or are found guilty,well fuck em' I say. If any of you have any questions we are located at 3340 w. Fillmore on the 3rd floor. Roll call starts at 0900 and 1730 daily. Our number is 312-746-7180.

Hey dipshit.

1st. SOS will not be disbanded, if anything there would be whole sale supervisor changes.

2nd. New procedures will be put in place to keep track of each P.O.
working in units. Such as getting rid of unmarked cars. These procedures will affect the entire department. So you too will feel the pain.

3rd. If the S.O.S. guys get moved to districts and work beat cras you will have more jobs to handle,
bcause the S.O.S. guys will leave roll call,and lock someone up and be in the station doing the paper.

4th. If you are such the top-cop,
how come you aren't working tact on your merit?

Thanks for Playing.

Yes, I have seen the Super on the street. Hillard, and Starks personally visited every standing post at a VIP function; he asked my partner and I if we had a lunch relief. We said no, so he stood our post so we could grab a quick bite. Hillard was at a charity function and when it was over he made a point of walking across the parking lot to my partner and me, as we were flagging traffic, Cumberland and Higgins, to say thank you, chit-chat. Sorry to disappoint the phil apologist.
And as an aside, the moral on this Dept has never been worse, phil and the mayor have wrecked this Dept. There are no more good spots except maybe Fugitive Apprehension.

I don't know did the Marquette 10 do what was alleged, don't know. But here are some facts, yes an officer purchased a vehicle from a dope dealer knowing he was a dope dealer, yes they received free car washes at the dope dealers car wash, yes one of them went on vacation with the dope dealers "bitch", yes some of them received free construction work from a dope dealers contractor. Does this make them guilty, don't know, but this stuff that the G was able to provide actual proof of, helped to cement all the bullshit the government dope dealers and users testified to, in the minds of the jury. And yes Phil was a Sgt. at the time, look up the records and stop spreading shit, you know nothing about. If you maintain Phil wasn't a Sgt. look at the records for his date of Sgt. look where he was assigned. The person that said talk to someone in a bar on Halsted st to find out the truth, knows exactly what he or she is talking about. That person was a tac man in 010 for many moons.

There were lots of rumors as to what he did to hurt those guys as well as help them. Nothing was ever substantiated to my knowledge.

To answer 4:53 yes Buzzy went after CW Wilson, because Wilson started or continued dealing dope again after the trial and the government cut him sack for his testimony against the M10. Buzzy is a great person and a terrific copper. It was somewhat tenuous because, everyone of those assholes (the dope guys turned government witnesses) walked around with US Attorney's cards in their pockets, almost daring the police to touch them after the trial. Although Buzzy has done many heroic things in his police career, not to mention his Marine time, in my opinion this was the greatest. Just think going after the son of a bitch for violating the law, knowing full well everything you do will be reviewed by nine thousand shitbag feds.

But putting it on the front page before anyone has been taken into custody was selfish and unprofessional! They've given these guys the opportunity to head to Mexico or eat a gun (god forbid!!!!). Bad move. You don't think everyoe involved is now scrambling for some sort of life vest? These two "journatlists" should be black balled from any further information from this Department.

SOS was the last remnants of Gang Crimes (North/South/West) when it was broken up on 01Jan1993. The Select few (clout) went to SOS.
The rest were the District Gang Teams. I was not there so I don't know what the facts are or what really happened. I do know this, when the G goes public and names names and indicts coppers the coffins are nailed shut. But most importantly, and remember this, ALWAYS AND I MEAN ALWAYS A COPPER FLIPS ON ANOTHER OR HIS PARTNER OR THE TEAM. I'm pro-police all the way but I have seen this happen every time shit has hit the fan.
The exception is Majinowski (former GCN). He never flinched.
Just sit back and watch the ride, it will be something. Remember the G always loves to indict right before the holidays.

I worked for FB and the "Baron" two of the best bosses you could ever work for...there was no fucking around because they knew how to run that place....when the jagoff ADS took over and backstabbed those two guys and ran them out the unit went in the direction it is now in....plus they took on like 200 more coppers...I was one of about 130 coppers at the time I was there and it was a more "elite" type of unit then...not the 350 or so it is today...way out of control!I'll say it again...Fred and the Baron were the best...this shit would not have been going on if they were here....no fucking way... they would not have it..Labiak was an exception...he was a fuckup dope head but was an isolated case...and he got trimmed.

The rumor spread that one of the officers had an affair with the driver and (Latanya Haggerty shooting), all the officers were fired. No one stood up for these officers. The CPD is filled with a lot of good cops( the reason I stay). It is also filled with a lot of scum (I mean a lot of scum). They help perpetuate and spread rumors and other bullshit. They are the eyes and ears of the Democrats that run this city.

Phil Cline. Well lets say I'm not his biggest fan or his biggest critic. He took this job because he wanted more money and maybe he thought he could fix some things. Problem is that you need someone from outside the department. We're all to close on this department to really reform things. To much family, to many friends. Cline took some half measures in good faith (like making everyone go to the ghetto), but sometimes I think they did more harm than good (now everyone in the ghetto is burned out and nobody who knows what they're doing wants to work there).
I don't think Cline is a bad guy, but he is going to smell like a bucket of shit if even half of what I hear comes down on this department. He allowed himself to be turned into a stooge. That is how he is going to be remembered.

This is a cops cop. I know Dave. I worked with Dave. Dave is the best, and I agree with him one hundred percent. Now, I have a challenge for all of you wannabe, cry baby,mewling, spineless, simpering, snivelling cowards who call your self the real police
whose only claim to being real macho men tough guys is coming on this sight with your ranger bs to complain about things you know nothing about.

Go see Dave.

Oh, and you better bring all your friends, all your guns and your friends guns, an air strike, and have artillery back up with you.

Cuz when Dave gets done with you, you will be running home to mommy and daddy in tears with poopy pants.

Dave, if you really wrote that post, I love ya man.

Old 010 guy.

The exception is Majinowski (former GCN). He never flinched.

Hey, Mr. I know everything I wan't there moron. Do you know why Majenowski never flipped, or flinched, or ratted out, or snitched? HMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM!

Cuz, the only guy he could have ratted out, the only guy he could have hurt, and the only guy who would have gone down if he flinced was HIMSELF.

I love it when these wannabes with ten minutes on the job post this garbage. I get a good laugh.

Why all the morbid fascination with the Marquette Ten. Something that happened, like twenty three years ago? It is forgotten history. Oh, yeah, the ex con at the Halsted bar is bad rapping the Feds and impressing all of you baby police with his stories. Let me ask you this, have you ever met an ex con who actually claims to have done what they put him away for? Back track, have any of you children ever met an ex con?

What happened in yester year has no bearing on today and the SOS scandal. None. Nada. Zip.

Now go back to your tavern and suck up some more beer and pretend to be the police. Just remember, there are guys like me and Snethen who will eat you for lunch.

This job has really gotten pathetic. You people have totally ruined my police department.

Hey Dave ,
I've been waiting for you to chime in on this one. I knew it was only a matter of time. But you are right. When it comes to the
M-10 most of the posts are pure hearsay. Hurry up and retire . It ain't what it used to be. C'mon down here by all of us.who retired from 10.

Many are blaming Cline and Mayor Daley. Take a look at society as a whole or the private sector. Good working people are getting "fired" two weeks before their 30 year anniversary and retirement.

It's hard for us to get fired. Many are under investigation and no one is safe. The hired truck scandal has been going on for over 100 years and NOW everyone's under investigation?? Be safe guys, watch your backs and try to smile!!

Hello all,

I have 20 years on the job and I left SOS 08 years ago because it started to suck. I don't have one family member on the job, but
you(s) are right you need a phone call to get there. However, it is not what it once was or what you might think. Guys leave there all the time. That NEVER happened ten-fifteen years ago. There are not too many happy guys in SOS and it'll get worse. So be careful what you wish for!!! Good luck and try to look on the bright side...You could be JF!!

I was involved in the investigation of a burglary
arrest of one of the dope dealers/government witness involved in the Marquette 10 affair. He and two other mopes grabbed a bunch of office machines from a accounting business in 010.

He got caught and his response, "Go ahead and charge me with murder, Danny Web gonna take care of me."
