Once Again, Two Sets of Rules

  • Mayor Richard Daley is under fire for not firing a top city official who admitted to rigging exams to get a job for a son of a top union official.

    A long time friend and political ally of the Daleys is on the job as the Mayor's Deputy Planning Commissioner at $129,000 a year, even though he admittedly broke the law by fixing a hiring exam.

OK. You or we rig a hiring exam or actually get caught cheating, being fired would probably be the least of our problems. We'd be fighting for day labor spots with all the illegals. This guy? Keeps a job paying him $129,000 a year. Oh lord, that we could screw up as badly as this guy. And it only gets better - he's also a cooperating Federal witness.
  • That's despite the fact that Kozicki, testifying with a grant of immunity from the Feds, admitted during the trial of Daley Patronage Chief Robert Sorich that he rigged a hiring exam so Andy Ryan,the unqualified 19-year-old son of a union boss, could get a job as a city building inspector.

    The mayor's advisors claim that he hasn't been fired because the Feds have advised the city not to penalize cooperating witnesses. But he had to be forced to cooperate and given a grant of immunity from the feds to give an honest testimony.

What keeps inspiring people to throw themselves under the bus for this mayor and this political machine? Could someone explain at least THAT part of it to us?

The Whistle Blower in Hired Trucks Patrick McDonough got investigated and terminated, he sued with legal eagle Frank Avila Jr. to get his job back and won and he revealed gambling on City time, bribes for overtime, and of course mafia trucking companies doing no work and getting paid. HIS REWARD WAS TO GET FIRED.

The G says they dont want to punish those who turn states evidence
I understand that
BUT this guy got immunity only because they had him by the balls if he didnt accept the chance to testify
Freedom from criminal prosecution... Yes.
Unlimited job secutiry? NO

Are you so foolish to ask this question? The reason everyone and anyone continues to stand up for and take the heat for Daley is that he is CONNECTED! If you rat him out you dissapear. You think witness protection can protect you? One day you will be picking up the Sunday paper and you are never seen or heard from again. You continue to rant and rave about mob connections and still you ask such a ridiculous question?

Holy Cow! I worked with Chris Kozicki at County many years ago. We got hired together and worked in the same office for a while. He left County a couple months after being hired to work as the ward secretary in the 11th ward. I know he went to the dept. of buildings after that, coordinating the demolition of abandoned buildings.

Havent talked to him in quite a few years. Thought he was a good guy. I guess if you lay with dogs you are gonna get fleas.

what's the story with 1953 and 1910 3rd watch?

tuesday night, they respond to a call and locate offender. it is then determined that offender is dui, and was involved in multiple hit and runs. the victim/caller followed said offender from 011 district, to belmont and western. 1953 proceeds to go onto zone10 and say that it belongs to 011, "this guy hit like 20 cars and he is 501." 1910 then proceeds to go onto zone10 and says that it belongs to 011, asks dispatch to send a car from 011, and reiterates that the offender is dui and the only responsibility is for 019 to do a supp.

wow, what a bunch of dog asses. what happened to your cuffs, your job, your arrest? handle your jobs.

How about the fact that very few trucking Company "owners" went to jail for hired truck scandel. Even though they made some tall money. the ones that did go went because they didn't talk. So I as a Truck owner make large money and give a city worker a few thousand or hundred and he goes to jail so FEDS can say they are taking the city on? Talk about two sets of rules!

I think Daley has been spiking the Chicago drinking water with his own KOOLAIDE, that all this shit that keeps popping up doesnt phase anyone. Look at the cituation with all Three Amigos, Daley, Toddler, and the Hair Glavo with each having their own private elavators in a government building paid by the tax payers and no one really sees a problem with it. My advise stop drinking the water.

___________________________________

1145 (from tues night) is that you? I'm assuming it is. This is 1953, with the balls to identify herself. Let's set the record straight. Can we at least try to leave out the insults, it's the holiday season after all. After xmas, we can resume calling each other lazy "dog asses" and "2 year wonders", ok? But for now, let’s put the differences aside...

I'm sorry you misunderstood me on the radio. I was simply asking you to handle YOUR paper job. I never asked/demanded that you take the arrest. You had been assigned a call of a hit and run on the 800 blk of N. Trumbull. There were numerous cars that had been hit on that block from what we understood on our end. When I first asked you if you had a complainant, you said that you didn't find anyone and you would go back to the scene. Miraculously, when you went back to the scene, you found the caller. Then, you got on the air and said the complainant never saw who hit her car, they only heard it. You then graciously offered to send the complainant to 019 to do the paper. Um, no. If you want to play that game, then by your own admission, it's a hit and run for you to handle. We can play stupid and say that it could have been someone else that hit the car, although we all know exactly who did it. Nice try, though, you get points for that attempt. A separate witness could have gone back to the scene and identified which cars were hit. But why the fuck bother? 019 can't go and investigate a goddamn traffic crash in 011. Nor was I asking for 011 to come to 019 to handle anything. All you needed to do was start the 99-b traffic accident and see if other cars on that block had been hit and be done with it. You didn’t even need to list the striking vehicle, it’s called the first line of the SUPP report, “Subsequent investigation and events revealed…” It's not fucking rocket science and this is already blown into bigger proportions than it needs to be. I apologize to all those who are sufficiently annoyed with this bickering.

I would suggest you take your own advice and handle your jobs.

Merry Christmas.

He hit the cars in 011, they responded to YOUR flash and they found him hiding somewhere, he belongs to 011 no matter who put the cuffs on him. If thats the way it happened. If not, tell us more.

I am surprised that 1953 was there for the job, with the four hour days she puts in 2000 to 02-whenever the late cars go in.

i hate to break it to you but there are multiple hit and runs in 011 everyday that are unrelated. no car from 011 ever responded to your man with a gun call. a flash was never given on an offending vehicle, because nobody ever saw the vehicle. you have the offending vehicle and complainant, your job. how can you possibly prove that this offending vehicle is responsible for a crash in 011? admit it, you tried to blow off another job.

but, this is 019. where the commander went to 3510 s michigan and expressed concern as to the safety of the tactical officers from 019, being sent to 011 on the weekends.

fyi. i'm not 1145, nor was i that night, and have more than 2 years on the job.

but i will call a spade a spade, or your case, a dog.

I work in 019 on mids and thats funny cus I see her checking off at 0400. In addition, I always know that if she's working she rides on every call and will back up every officer working, thats alot more than most of the officers working in 019 on any watch, most of them are soft and asleep most of the tour. And, do the math, 2000-0200 is 6 hours, but it doesn't really matter does it because you are wrong.

Let's set things straight, 1953 is one of the few cars in 019 that is not a dog. Obviously the person who wrote about her checking off early would be one of the dogs who is jealous that she is a curfew car (BTW she comes in with quite a few curfews too).
Second whoever the mutt is from 011 who is not a 2 year wonder, all right we'll call a spade a spade too, and we'll call you a three year wonder who is jealous that you are nowhere even near close enough yet to bid to our district and get out of that ghetto rat hole.

Signed 019th district tact guy.

(Oh yeah btw I like working tact in your district too takes abosolutely no police skill there, stop a few cars get a gun or dope, not hard at all Especially for you wonders who play whitey and the expressway)

here's an idea, instead of paying attention to how may hours someone else works why dont you mind your own business. it's beefers like you that we dont need on this job.maybe you should just get your own life and stop paying so much attention to others. and no i dont work in 019. just a thought though.

Working in the ghetto does take some police skills. If you work in the 19th district, how often do have to handle a savage like a Westside "Joe". What kind of activity does the tact team in 19 even bring in? Let me guess, 2 DOPW arrest. Wow, that definitely takes police skills. You guys in 19 should be really proud that you work "the tact team" I know of a few tools that make up that team, m/4's, real winners. When is the last time guys on your team even found a gun, or drug arrest, other some weed. If you guys are that good, than come to 011 and show us how it’s done, show us how the "real police" from 19 handle their job.

Sorry to burst your bubble kid but outside districts and units go into 011 and 015 all the time and make good pinches. Some of those guys worked in those districts when you were still playing stinkfinger with your girlfriend in the back of your daddies car.
I've personally seen 016 gangs and TRU make alot of gun arrests in 015 in the last month or so, same with outside tac while in 011. I woulld actually like to see you go to 019, 016, 020, 023, 017 and try to make good arrests, ones that don't fall over the hood of the car and require some investigation, i.e. robberies, burglaries, thefts from autos etc.. Oh, I worked in 011, EVERYONE has dope, my little cousin could make a dope pinch there and he's 15, also plenty of dpw and sub being done by tac there. Just do the job and go home safe, stop worrying about what everyone else in doing.

All of you silly little campers just settle down. The uniform is the same, the consequences of your actions are the same: if you fuck up, you bleed red. If you misjudge a shithead, you die and if you break the number one rule-go home at the end of your shift-we carry you in a box. Who the fuck cares where you work or what you do? Competition is fun and somewhat healthy. But viscious slander serves no purpose. All of you are dogs! My dawgs!!! Keep up the good work

Who do you think is commiting most of the crime in 019, 020, 018 etc? there is no special breed of "joe" over there, they are from the west, south and from the green. They are dealt with everyday when they come on down and "shop" in the affluent areas of the city where all the "goods" are. Bid to a real district with more than just a ghetto area and you will discover this.
