Dead Chicagoans Worth Weight in Gold

This is just stupid. And not the good kind of stupid like the various Midway Airport photos we keep getting in the mail. This is the kind of stupid a lot of people should lose their jobs over. Front page of the Sunday Tribune (if you need to log into the Trib website, use the following user name: garbagegoeshere@gmail.com. The password: 123456):
  • Police call them the body snatchers, and their invasion from Ohio began in 2004 when a Dayton company called GSSP Enterprises Inc. won a city contract for the grim but necessary task of hauling thousands of Chicago's dead to the morgue.
  • They recently rewarded the Dayton firm with a new five-year, $15.5 million deal that boosts the rate the city pays by 335 percent--to $915 from $210 for each body transported to the Cook County medical examiner's office from the scenes of murders, accidents, suicides and many natural deaths.
  • That is far more than paid elsewhere in the nation for the same service, experts say. The Cook County Sheriff's Police, for example, pay $130 per body.
Cook County, which is probably the most bloated political structure in the entire universe pays a measly $130 and Daley pays $915 per stiff? Un-freaking-believable. This company from Ohio must think they've put one over on the big city boys. Of course, after they give the required kickbacks to various political entities and minority sub contractors, it'll take quite a bite out of the $915, but as GSSP also moved bodies in Ohio for a mere $85 per, we're sure they'll still have plenty left over.

Me-thinks there needs to be a federal investigation on this.

Peter Fitzgertald!... WE NEED YOU!!!... NOW!!!

Of course, these Dems are getting bold now that they're taking over Congress. Just think how rediculous things would be in Chicago and Cook County if they managed to bullshit the entire USA and get their boy Obama into the Oval Office!

Scary, very scary.

Makes paying sergeants pay for squadrol crews seem like a real bargan.

Why not train physically fit volunteer P.O. wagon crews, in all aspects of handling human remains, including how to preserve evidence. Then rotate them periodically to avoid burnout to work for Forensic Services with proper equipment and special vehicles to move bodies. They would make sergeant's pay while working there and the department would have a trained group that could be called together if there was a mass casulty event like a terrorist attack.

Since there would be no kickbacks to politicians this will never happen.

Rumor is A/4 Gun Team got in a drunken brawl after their Christmas Party and opened up some citizens head then left the scene without leaving paper, etc.

Supposedly it was caught on video. The Team sergeant was dumped to 1st watch on the far southside, and the team split up and reassigned. (those involved anyway)

It a shame too, they're all good guys! (unfortunately probably just drank to much at the party..like most of us do!)then probably lost their patience while dealing with some a-hole citizen.

All just speculation since I wasn't there. As Snoop Dogg say's "I ain't tellin..I'm just sayin!"

The body pick up guys take forever to get to a scene too. They get something like 2 hours to get there after they are called and usually take 1 hr 45 min to 1 hr 59 min. to get there. in the mean time the dead persons family is going goofy wanting to know why pookie is still laying on the sidewalk, more cars are called to scene for crowd control, resulting in backlogs and overtime. go figure more daley b.s. What else can you expect.

As a member of the Sheriff's Police, the $130 per body that we pay is outragous. The $900 you guys pay is out and out criminal.

I was first on the scene on a fatal in Lemont Township on Friday afternoon.... Car versus a pedrestrian. Pedrestrian lost. It took Durante almost 4 HOURS to get there.

In four hours, your wagon men can get the wallet and split the take, and max out the poor schmuck's credit cards with phone/mailorder purchases before rigor mortis sets in!!

The only good thing is that they didn't drop the stretcher down a flight of stairs like our dumbasses did in 1978 at the Gacy house in Norwood Park TWP.

10 bucks an hour to haul bodies?? I get $34 an hour and it ain't enough. Give me a break!

Hello Denny Grant??!!??!! Time to retire dude!

$3.1 million dollars a year. How many policemen or better equipment do we lose out on. I've been on this job long enough to remember my fair share of the stinky ones and I got over it. A couple of pool wagons and a rotating crew assinged to each area. The wait would be far less and the money saved could fill the pension fund. The only problem with my plan is no kickback $$$ to Dickhead, I mean Daley. Hurry up Mr. Fitzgerald, we can't wait much longer!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

UN-FU@#ING-BELIEVEABLE!!!!!!!!! I just read that article. I have never had an even decent let alone good experience with these guys. They have screwed up more than once on just me, let alone how many others, they did not fill their obligations as specified in their contract, they take forever and what does the city do, they renew their contract and give them a raise!! If I screwed up that much, didn't do my job, and said the hell with paying those parking tickets and water bill, I'd be fired!! These guys get a 300% raise, we are lucky to get 2% and we actually make the city money. NO MORE writing parkers, if you write a mover take the time to look up the state charge so the city doesn't get the money, and milk the city for as much overtime as you possibly can. Fu@k Daley, Fu@k his entire administration.
As a side note, I heard Daley saying that Peter Fitzgerald was too much of a pussy to try to go after him. Please Peter, prove him wrong. Pretty please, with sugar on top.

Quick story about Commander C.K.
One of his minions from TRU (Sgt.) was working my distict(on TARA) when I adressed roll call regarding outside units coming in and tearing it up and leaving us holding the bag. I told the officers to get their beat numbers and dupe the jobs to them if they did anything stupid. See, we were getting guys in black pajamas kicking doors and claiming to be from the district, also Tru was tearing up homes and cars and we were getting thr C.R.s.
Anyways I get a PDT message from C.K. telling me that guys like me are the reason that there are rifts between units and districts. I wrote back saying that the lack of supervision in units was the reason that there was problems.No response from C.K. Two weeks later the SOS scandal breaks!

The city should use a (o.t code) like they do for big events like 500 Madison and Lefcow for all the times gssp doesn't make it to pick up a body or the city has to transport because they haven't followed the contract. then submit it to the crook county. and make sure they have Illinois plates on their vehicles not Ohio like in the past. and make sure they have protective suits,body bags,gloves and that they aren't driving their personal vehicles..

When I left work this morning (0700), I didn't see anything about C.K. getting promoted to commander of the Marine Unit. Did a fax come out late Friday? So now he's getting S. G's sloppy seconds. What a joke.

TRU is supervised very well, no hoodies, etc. so send that b.s somewhere else. It's also nice how you tell your people in roll call how to beef on coppers, like the citizens beefing isn't bad enough. stay in your office would ya...

It wont take long for the streets to further turn to a shittier state.

Remember guys it was your union that insisted wagon men no longer handle removals. In the day wagon "men" (not 100 lb females) were more than able to handle the job. Poltical correctness gone astray in so many areas of this job. No one seemed to care if we got 20 bucks from the local funeral directors. At least we appeared to give some consideration and condolence to the families of the deceased. Glad I'm done with all the BS associated with the job.

Happy Holidays to all.

A little bird told me:

1. This company is connected to certain City Hall power brokers (now sitting on the County Board) who helped grease the skids.

2. Almost 50% of the removal costs per body have to go to miniorty contractors with ties to the ward that follows 6 in the City Council. For those of you who can't count that means the 7th Ward Beaver Backers.

3. The Department of Procurement Services is loaded folks who live in the previously listed ward.

Gee can we put 2 and 2 together we come up with 900 a body. As Sean Connery said in the Untouchables "that's the Chicago Way".

Now will see how many number 2's pay for the sins of the 1's.

As a 26 year employee of the City I find it criminal how this administration placates the Black Community with these "give away" contracts. Believe me people this one is just the tip of the Iceberg. You would not believe the "bend over backwards and take it in the ass" attitude the Department of Procurement Services takes when establishing contracts with MBE contractors. The Pentagon overpayment scandals of the 70's are chump change compared to this "lets buy their vote" philosphy employed at City Hall.

As an aside, this is one City Worker who actually works and appreciates all you officers do to keep our neighborhoods safe from the invading hordes.
