Are We at War?

...with Streets and Sanitation? Numerous comments are cluing us into a couple of incidents of unmarked squad cars being towed. This is asinine.

First of all, we're recommending refusing to pay anything to get a squad car out of hock. It's the City's car - they want it, they can pay to get it. If an Inspector wants to write someone up for parking illegally, fine - they need their pimpy movers. But circumventing the established disciplinary process and harming you monetarily WITHOUT DUE PROCESS is beyond the pale. FOP? Any word on this? This sounds like a definite grievance to say the least.

There better be some sort of policy change before Monday morning or we are predicting not only a war with Streets and San, but a severe shortage of unmarked squad cars in the Areas and somehow, no one will have seemed to have checked them out.

The very idea that an "Authorized Emergency Vehicle" should be towed from an "Unauthorized Parking Space" is, quite frankly, oxymoronic. If you look at any logical, reasonable reading of the federal, state and local regulations, it can be determined that while a law enforcement officer is "on the clock," so to speak, the use of that law enforcement officer's vehicle use of a parking space or area takes precedent over any civilian vehicle's use or procurement of a viable parking position.
This is not negotiable. Police officers are not soccer moms out running errands in the 'burbs. There are many times, spaces are needed in a very congested city for either marked or unmarked police vehicles. HERE ENDETH THE DEBATE!

Cline, Starks, Williams etc. have to kiss the mayors ass to keep their jobs. FOP's job is to be outspoken supporters of the police. The FOP should have been out yesterday giving a news conference that the SunTimes article was biased reporting. The FOP should speak out against this new policy-a reaction to the picture of K9 PO who had a legit reason for parking in that (non-public)handicap spot. I expect nothing less from the SunTimes and the brass, but every other big city's police union speaks out...where is the FOP sticking up for us? I want my dues back.

"Power corrupts, and absolute power corrupts absolutely." - Lord Acton, 1887.

While "King Richard II" would not fare particularly well on an IQ test, he surpassed his father as a political genius long ago. Daley could even teach Niccolo Machiavelli a few things.

First of all, through political patronage and backroom deals, he has assembled a nucleus to indefinitely ensure his reelection.

Through monolithic voting patterns, any moron endorsed by the Democratic Party is virtually assured of victory (i.e., "the Toddler").

His bullshit facade of wrought iron fences and floral planters has even fooled the intelligentsia among Chicago voters, just as long as the garbage is picked up and streets of snow are promptly cleared.

Historically, some Chicagoans have actually taken a perverse pride in its legacy of corruption.

"Challengers" Brown and Walls are nothing more than stalking horses for Daley. A Republican mayor will never happen in our grandchildren's lifetime in this town.

Even the embattled and indicted Arenda Troutman will win handily.

While "the Machine" gets winos, morons and even the deceased to the polls, suburban Cook County voters are apathetic, again evidenced by "the Toddler's" landslide victory.

Local media stands idly by with tongue in cheek by realizing that any alternative to Daley could well be worse, at least on a short-term basis. Their periodic "criticism" could be compared to using a pea-shooter against an Abrams tank.

When the overreactive and mercurial Daley gets pissed about guns, illegal city parking, whatever, he tells his six-figure salaried minions to jump. In turn, they will ask hizzonor "how high?".

Most Chicagoans have no concept of reform measures such as a RECALL REFERENDUM INITATIVE and TERM LIMITS.

Daley will always appease the West and South Side "clergy demands", using no moral compass whatsoever. If you are a political liability, he will hang you out to "twist slowly in the wind". He truly is a "ho" that will sell out honest, hard working police officers in a heartbeat.

Barring ill-health or death, you better get use to Mr. Daley. If U.S. Atty. Pat Fitzgerald's successor is a Democratic appointee, it's "Katie bar the door."

Political "reform" in Chicago remains a perpetual oxymoron. After all, it is "da Chicago Way".

It is in the best interest of all officers to make the Mayor regret one of the truly dumbest knee-jerk
decisions he has ever made regarding the Police. Put the heat on the S&S drivers....red lights, stop signs, backing out of alleys, u turns in front of oncoming traffic. And if they give you ANY spec of trouble about it, take them in. Drive those S&S vehicles into the pound, put holds on them "pending investigation." We'll see how Daley reacts to the NEW emergency, no S&S drivers available to drive or tow ANYTHING, because they're all tied up in court! Thanks in advance, Mr. Mayor!

I don't believe S&S tow trucks are exempt from IVC and traffic ordinances, requiring tow trucks to have a brake light bar for the vehicle being told. Tow trucks must have a yard of sand on board, a broom and shovel, an extra plate for the vehicle being towed. Boys and girls start looking up all the details of laws governing tow trucks and start enforcing them.. On Taylor St. most of the S&S tow guys are outfit guys, look for their guns and in many cases dope. The first time a police vehicle is towed while a po or det is on a legitimate police assignment lock up the tow driver for interferring or obstructing.

I can see the fallout now. City is going to take a hit on this one the first time were late getting to a job. read as follows:

Dispatcher: 1512, units in 15, units on citywide, were getting a battery in progress, domestic related, 1414 W. Jackson.

1512: 1512, 10-4, On the way.

Dispatcher: 1512, were getting a second call from your domestic, the offender is tearing up the house now. Are you there yet?

1512: Negitive squad, we've made two passes, were looking for a legal parking spot. Can you call them back and ask the offender to take a time out?

Dispatcher: 1512, EMS is being dispatched, were getting a third call the offender just cut the caller, then took the phone away.

1512: 10-4 squad, let ems know they can find legal parking near the united center since there are no games tonight. Let them know they are going to have a 14 block hike, so step it up.

Dana, your knee jerk response is so full of shit. Did you think this one through for over 3 minutes or just throw it out there.

OFF TOPIC--but important

Dear Phil (I know you read this)

Last night the battery on my radio failed at 1930, 4 hours into working the street. This wouldn't be so bad, but my partner's battery only made it to 1915. We tried to send a message to the zone saying we had bad radios but the computer's touch screen and green keyboard "send" buttons stopped working also for a couple of minutes. That same computer is out of range approximately 1/3 of the tour. We don't have spare computers in the station, so I guess we'll stick with the lesser of two evils and keep the one that works when it wants to.

How about spending some of the Blackberry money and buying batteries to replace the ones that are worn out from 5-10 years of hard use? The street officers depend on equipment, not Blackberries.

How about getting the new IBM computers into the districts where 60-80% of the old POS PDTs are either inoperable or have been in the shop for a minimum of 60 days?
Does OEMC even fix the old PDTs?

Why should we do for you when you don't seem to do for us?

You want 10,000 sworn to do the work of 13,500 sworn but you won't meet us halfway.

You nitpick us with Inspectors who pick on officers for having grungy shoes AT THE END of shift. I worked with one Inspector when he was a PO and he was the biggest dogass in the district, now he feels he alone can save the Patrol Division through shined shoes.

You have a fit if an officer wants to go home at 5 after the hour after taking 15-30 jobs in 8 hours. I have seen the exodus of unmarked Fords leaving the back lot at 5, it looks like a TV commercial.

I have personally seen many exempt members drinking away their 3 hour lunches at various places, but we get banged with jobs 1 minute after our lunch period ends and we haven't paid the check yet.

You and 90% of the other gold stars seem to have forgotten what it is to wear a blue shirt. The only boss worth a shit is Dugan, and he has his moments also.

i hear some of you talking about how we can't get a tow truck for at least an hour when 2 cars that were involved in an accident and blocking the intersection...but, every "no parking" zone is not a tow sone. but, if it were, why would s&s target only police vehicles when there are hundreds of civilian vehicles parked the same way and they don't get towed. i have seen countless chicago dept. of revenue vans parked illegally in bus stops, fire hydrants etc. they are as far as you can get from an emergency vehicle. let the boot man walk a block with his boot in hand to do his job. sounds stupid, but this is what the city wants. maybe a few parkers on other city vehicles will quell this absurdity. how bout a ticket on a cta bus when it is stopped in the no parking zone near a dunkin donuts shop while he runs in to get a cup of coffee ? the look on his face would be priceless. gas company or com ed ? again, i have never written a ticket under these circumstances, but, now might be a good time to start. how bout a cable installer or furniture delivery truck ? can't park trucks with "b" truck plates on the sidestreets. need i go on ? is a mail delivery vehicle an emergency vehicle ? how bout when the mail carrier leaves the car running when they make a "quick" delivery...mover for leaveing a running vehicle unattended. i would never advocate an all out war between city agencies, but, a month or so of an all out barrage on these types of vehicles, it may just go away. when the brass has to field calls from u.p.s., and other companies about the $1000's of dollars in tickets, they may let up. here's another idea, let any civilian park anywhere and anytime. only ticket illegally parked city(not police) and delivery vehicles for a while and see what happens. use your discretion wisely and it will pay off.

(625 ILCS 5/12 -606) (from Ch. 95 1/2, par. 12 -606)
Sec. 12 -606. Tow -trucks; identification; equipment; insurance.
(a) Every tow -truck, except those owned by governmental agencies, shall have displayed on each side thereof, a sign with letters not less than 2 inches in height, contrasting in color to that of the background, stating the full legal name, complete address (including street address and city), and telephone number of the owner or operator thereof. This information shall be permanently affixed to the sides of the tow truck.
(b) Every tow -truck shall be equipped with:
(1) One or more brooms and shovels;
(2) One or more trash cans of at least 5 gallon capacity; and

(3) One fire extinguisher. This extinguisher shall
be either:

(i) of the dry chemical or carbon dioxide type
with an aggregate rating of at least 4 -B, C units, and bearing the approval of a laboratory qualified by the Division of Fire Prevention for this purpose; or

(ii) One that meets the requirements of the
Federal Motor Carrier Safety Regulations of the United States Department of Transportation for fire extinguishers on commercial motor vehicles.

Sec. 12 -215. Oscillating, rotating or flashing lights on motor vehicles. Except as otherwise provided in this Code:
(b) The use of amber oscillating, rotating or flashing lights, whether lighted or unlighted, is prohibited except on
1. Second division vehicles designed and used for towing or hoisting vehicles; furthermore, such lights shall not be lighted except as required in this paragraph 1; such lights shall be lighted when such vehicles are actually being used at the scene of an accident or disablement; if the towing vehicle is equipped with a flat bed that supports all wheels of the vehicle being transported, the lights shall not be lighted while the vehicle is engaged in towing on a highway; if the towing vehicle is not equipped with a flat bed that supports all wheels of a vehicle being transported, the lights shall be lighted while the towing vehicle is engaged in towing on a highway during all times when the use of headlights is required under Section 12 -201 of this Code;

2. Motor vehicles or equipment of the State of

other construction, maintenance or automotive service vehicles except that such lights shall be lighted only as a means for indicating the presence of a vehicular traffic hazard requiring unusual care in approaching, overtaking or passing while such vehicles are engaged in maintenance, service or construction on a highway;

My how many Streets and San vans and tow trucks drive aroud constantly with the amber lights going for no reason. I also wonder if city tow trucks have all their mandated equipment. Maybe we should make sure things are totally legal. We are just enforcing the law. Can't be discipled for doing your job. WINK !!!

Beat car: Squad we are on scene looking for legal parking. We should get to the crime in progess in about 10 minutes as I just found a legal spot to park 3 blocks away.

Oooohh, maybe we can put segways in the trunk so we can park legally far away and then hop on our segways to get to the scene. Vroom Vroom.

This department has been and will continue to be managed by anyone willing to toe the Daley line. Daley has dictated that this department becomes a mosaic of voters in Chicago, regardless of the degradation of morale within CPD.
The majority of merit promotions are made to fill a piece of the mosaic without regard to any real qualifications. A young person joining this police department will be hard pressed to find any satisfaction because of the truly inadequate command of this department.
An old timer told me long ago that this department makes policy based on today’s headlines. That was and is still true. Today’s command staff actually believes that they are making the department better, but not out of good intent, but out of politically driven appeasement to those that they are beholden to.

you don't write working men. the cta is not the city writing a driver will only hurt him not the city. if it is true and not only a one-time occurence about cars being towed at the request of the mayor then write the s and s guys not every working-stiff. even if you write the drivers the city won'tpay the tickets. long-form the driver lke the previous post said for obstruction.

Ladies and Gents, don't be too mad at streets and sans regarding this situation they've got a job to do, remember, they're still under the Microscope.

This all stems from the Number 2 guy of the Police Department (you know, the guy who got all his powers taken away from him) and what little power he has left, he's trying to cure the Headache by cutting of the head".

And all because one Dumb ass clout canine guy screws up, and now we're all screwed.

What about all those cars police request to be towed? They end up getting towed hours later. So, now these Tow Trucks are going to be lurking around every corner, even on our jobs?

Lets find legal parking when that poor lady is gettting her ass kicked by her dude - or when you back up another officer. So, you better not be double parked, better not be parked at a hydrant or tow zone.

What the #2 guy doesn't get is, he has like what? 3 Drivers? and they park his car for him.

It's a shame, if any of these bosses were smart, they would assign a Sgt. to investigate any officer parked illegally based on an ON VIEW infraction by a Sgt., or a call from Joe/Jane citizen or Streets and Sans. Oh! Almost forgot, and any of you policemen out there who like to stick it to other policemen.

Rights? We got no rights?

"OH WHERE OH WHERE HAS OUR FOP GONE?, OH WHERE OH WHERE CAN THEY BE"??????????????????

Hey all you working Beat Coppers, keep in mind that Tow Trucks used to tow vehicles in the City are not all City of Chicago Tow Trucks.

Most of them are those Two-Bit Contracted Tow Trucks who would've towed your car in a New York Second prior to being contracted by the City, so nothing's changed for them. The diffence now is, they get to stalk us and our vehicles when we exit them, So, look out!

Flip side, it's going to be easier on our concious when we issue them citations and run name checks.

By the way, I came up with an Idea...

If everyday, we generate numerous Tow Reports on vehicles parked in Tow Zones after Ticketing them, this would keep the Tow Monkees off our backs a bit. They'd be a little too busy to hound us as much. And the greatest part of all? We'd be doing our job - Legit!

Cause we all know, that everyday those cars we ticket in Tow Zones are left alone, and at our discretion - most of us feel that the ticket is enough.

Think about it.

This would spare most of the Patronage S & S guys/gals, but not the Patronaged Tow Trucking Companies used.

Well, be safe out there.

Off Topic...Rumors from 023 that a female blond PO (came from 011) is trying to jam up 023 Tact/Gang because she is pissed over not getting a spot a couple of months ago. She allegedly is a bartender in Wrigleyville and loves to beef on coppers. Any info?

I have it on good authority that she had to leave 011 because she got invovled with a married cop and it got ugly. She's supposed to be big trouble, guys...

BTW, if you know she's a bartender, they why don't you do what your supposed to? Last I checked, it's against G.O.'s to work in a liquor establishment.

WHERE IS THE FOP? And did the 1st Dept write that ridiculous order? The order states that all police vehicles must park legally at all times. It makes no exceptions for emergencies, traffic control, or official police business. All it states is that if you are parked illegally you must justify it, and may be responsible regardless of an ADS' determination. It doesn't say what a justification would be, so essentially it offers none. He expects us to guess what is justified? I guess I should park legally for every job. I'll be sure to let the zone know that I'm in the area of that in-progress call-but looking for parking. I expect this from 35th, but where the hell is the FOP?

Here is a better idea. All MCC violations can be written on ANOV's instead of movers that the judge will probably throw out anyway. Write an ANOV and if they refuse to sign, guess what? You have to make a physical arrest. And then if the S&S vehicle is illegally parked, you get to have S&S tow one of their own to the pound. Priceless....

About the incident in 019 district. from what I know and from what I have heard. 2 tac guys were conducting a pursuit. The car had two offenders and did not want to stop but finally stopped due to the simple fact that it had been trapped at the intersection of Fullerton & Western by a turning truck. At that time the officers approached the vehicle one on the drivers side the other on the pass. side. The tac guy on the driver side approached the open window with his gun drawn. The driver then decided to make a u turn and slammed on the gas while grabbing the officers gun and sending him flying to the ground the officer sustained a broken hand where he was later put in a cast. The other tac guy was in the process of opening the door when this occured and when he saw that the offender grabbed the other officers gun he then managed to jump in the moving vehicle as they tried to escape. Im not sure in detail what happened after that i know the officer in the vehicle began to fight the two offenders while the car was moving and they traveled about 3 blocks before the car actually stopped and in the process one bad guy and one tac guy managed to get oc sprayed.

I happen to work in 012 and talked to a couple of Tact officers who were working that day and they did in fact say that an unmarked was hooked but it wasn't one of ours meaning the 012th districts. Now if the rumor is correct that King Richie was going to eat on Taylor St. and he in fact ordered the car to get towed why then are you people up in arms at S&S? Anybody with a little time on the job I'm sure at one point or another has made an arrest because some boss forgot how to use his handcuffs that day and told you to do so.......and when that happened what did you say, no.......I doubt it. You probably did what you were ordered to do, as a matter of fact I know you did what you were told to do. Direct your comments were they belong......at King Richie for making another thoughtless, stupid, I'm in charge decision. Could S&S done things differently....probably, but I don't know I don't work for them. If S&S towed the car for no reason, then so be it they get what they got coming. My whole point here is that we are all policeman.....start acting like it. Find out the facts before you start crying like little babies because you know who you are starting to sound like?

So if I understand the vib here this is whats going on.

A few cops wanna play I don't have to follow the rules cause I'm the PO-PO, they get caught by the press (NOT STREETS & SANITATION)and now that the pressure is on the Police dept to stop the bullshit they want to get the posse organized and take it out on Streets & Sanitation what fucking lossers. Follow procedures asshole,use that little thing you have called a radio (not your dick) and call in to the zone let them know you are parked there . Streets & Sanitation CANT & WONT tow any vehicle without the command coming from the higher ups.Would you tell your commander that the thief you just caught is your brother so you wont arrest him? To sit there and want to ticket and fuck with every Sanitation employee is so stupid. Ok now that garbage truck driver you fucked with for no reason but your God complex ,is in your alley did you know he has the authority to have an inspector come to your house to ticket your home for having all that drywall and/or construction materails that your contractor was suppose to get rid off and didn't because you told them (DON'T WORRY I'M THE PO-PO) streets and san will take it.
How about the hey streets I'm locked out of my squad help me,they are'nt suppose to help you the police has a diffrent tow service. Oh and my favorite hey streets I'm stuck in the sand by Oak Street Beach can ya get me out..
As to the issue of going threw stop lights and not following street sign laws, yes Streets does this but mostly because they have to to get the job done, you drive a little beep-beep squad car they have to drive a huge truck threw a one-way street sometimes with only inches of clearence from bumper to bumper to get your street plowed,cleaned or serviced ya ever think of that
Hey quit the hating and go after the people who started this B/S your fellow P.Os and the press everyone knows the press is after ALL city workers CPD is'nt off limits to the press look at the news does it say Streets and Sanitation busted cops parking where they shouldn't be (NO!)The press did if ya wanna be a detective someday start with this little case of Who parked and who snitched. Solve this and one day you too can be Inspecter Gadget!

I don't understand the surprise about streets and sanitation towing our cars. The main guy over there is that asshole Mike Picardi who if you recall was the guy that took over our motor maintenance and fucked it all up after insisting that all sworn police personel be removed from the now fleet management controled garages. Together with his yes man, lacky, Glenn Tatara, they went about destroying the police garage operation. The police fleet went from having a hundred pool cars available everyday to having none. Full chassised side and front air bag equipped Fords were replaced with unsafe uni-bodied, no side air bag Chevys. The other deals that were made at the expense of our safety would take volumes to describe. But in it all Glenn Tatara had full police emergency equipment installed in his black Chevy, obtained a police identification card for himself and Mike Picardi and supplied Mike Picardi with one of our black exempt Ford police interceptors to use and play the big shot with. Of course Tatara and Picardi both had Spectra radios in their cars that had the capability of receiving and transmitting of all zones and city wides. When these two jerk offs left fleet management for streets and sanitation they took their police ID cards with them along with their cars that had full police equipment. Is it any wonder that Picardi is having our police cars towed, he and Tatara never had any regard for our efforts out there in the street. Remember Mike, pay back is a motherfucker!

The Commissioner of streets and sanitation who is a known police hater wispered in Daleys ear about the police parking illegally. Daley gives him the authority to tow police vehicles that are parked illegally and Cline and Starks are to gutless to stand up. Our only choice is to take matters and our pens into our own hands and end this bullshit by writting tickets to any truck that has the streets and sanitation logo on it.

Before we start a war with the drivers of street and san lets first determine who is initiating the tows. I mean come on guys if our supervisot tells us to write tickets on a street we do it right, so the drivers may have orders to tow. All im saying is lets find out who is the party responsible first and then take action. We dont really know if this is coming from city hall or from our first deputy who is in charge until Klein gets back. So lets wait before we start something we are going to regret.

Dana is in charge? Well, that explains everything. Cline will not go for this B.S. when he gets back.
