Busy Weekend - Open Post

We had some major posting this weekend. Be sure you scroll down the past 10 threads or so. You want to make sure you don't miss anything, especially the Meeks posting, the parking controversy, the Lieutenants list and half a dozen other bits of fun. And how about these stories that we couldn't find time for?
  • Caffeine laced doughnuts? We don't think Homer Simpson would appreciate not being able to nap after one of his tasty treats, but midnight guys ought to love this. Count us in!
  • The Public Schools dust up has made it to the pulpits. A minister demands the security chief at CPS resign. Anyone not see this one coming?
  • More foie gras nonsense. Don't these people realize that (A) city inspectors don't usually work weekends unless its a really BIG weekend and they're looking to suspend liquor licenses and (B) no one says you can't give away foie gras - you just can't sell it.

Sorry to re-post an old comment but it got buried in SCC's Sunday night slew of postings. I think the message needs to get out that bosses need to support the troops, quit being so condescending and quit throwing rank around as if your chevrons or bars make you part of some aristocracy. Here's my earlier observation:

What's up with that fat fuck lieutenant working as watch commander on the 3rd Watch in 005? The guy is fatter and uglier than a walrus, has the worst 70's haircut and a grease-smeared white shirt tearing at the seams. Went in to get an arrest report signed while fatty was knee-deep into a trough of chicken wings and told me "get out of my office, can't you see I'm on lunch? I don't want to get the keyboard greasy." Hey jumbo, I don't think those pork sausages you call fingers can even work a keyboard! And lose the attitude asshole, us P.O.'s are the backbone of this department. Go ahead loser, have your grabber and die.

If anyone has ever been in one of these "schools" then you know it is a scary experience. These kids conduct themselves like savages and these schools go up every day. The fact that a grammer school needs metal detectors should tell the general public something about these kids.
Heard a parent on the news ask "What could a little girl possibly do....etc?" Well, there were about six of these little angels that were stopped inn this very school with box cutters that day. Maybe it was for an art and crafts project.
"Children are a reflection of their parents." Enough said.

First of all, Lt. Mitros is a nice guy. Would give you the shirt off his back, literally. Second, one should ALWAYS knock and announce before strolling into the W/C's office. I always did it when I was a PO, and still do it now, as a Sgt.
It's called COURTESY. And when the boss tells you he's occupied, and to give him some time, you do it.
You don't go to the blog and make it a personal thing. One day, son, YOU may become a boss yourself. Hopefully, you'll show more class at that time then you have up to this point.

The politicians have created these beasts. They are animals. This city needs to go up to cleanse itself.

Every school with them is a mess. They walk out of the classroom spitting to the floor throwing garbage everywhere but God forbid if you say anything to them.

There are animal houses all over the city that house and take care of these lazy sons a bitches that are up to age 20 and still in the system. They expect everybody to cater to them because of their color and because we owe them. Day after day we have to do missing reportd on the same damn 20 year olds. They dont work...they multiply like a bad disease.

A person I know in Management and Labor Affairs just told me that there is a VERY strong rumor that the last sergeants test is going to be scrapped because a box containing roughly 200 of the answer booklets was misplaced, and when it was found it had been opened. They can't verify that the contents were not tampered with, so they may just re-test!

Again, this is only a rumor at this point, but it's coming straight from some rank within a Unit that has been contacted about what should be done.

Public Schools make me sick. If a black kid is bused or let into our school its worth $500.00 a year for each kid. All whitey gets is about $50.00 a year.

Whites are now the minority. Everything is wasted on the black vote.

Sorry for the cut and paste, but I thought this was important. I feel for these coppers...the spray painters should have been given a big "68 Democratic Convention" welcome!!!!!!!
--------------------------
Anti-war protesters were allowed to spray paint on part of the west front steps of the United States Capitol building after police were ordered to break their security line by their leadership, two sources told The Hill.

According to the sources,police officers were livid when they were told to fall back by U.S. Capitol Police (USCP) Chief Phillip Morse andDeputy Chief Daniel Nichols. "They were the commanders on the scene," one source said, who requested anonymity. "It was disgusting."

After police ceded the stairs, located on the lower west front of the Capitol, the building was locked down, the source added.

A second source who witnessed the incident said that the police had the crowd stopped at Third Street, but were told to bring the police line in front of the Capitol.

Approximately 300 protesters were allowed to take the steps and began to spray paint "anarchist symbols" and phrase such as "Our capitol building" and "you can’t stop us" around the area, the source said.

Morse responded to these claims in an e-mail Sunday afternoon explaining that the protesters were seeking confrontation with the police.

"While there were minor instances of spray painting of pavement by a splinter group of Anarchists who were seeking a confrontation with the police, their attempts to breach into secure areas and rush the doors of the Capitol were thwarted," Morse said. "The graffiti was easily removed by the dedicated [Architect of the Capitol] staff, some of whom responded on their day off to quickly clean the area."

He added, "It is the USCP's duty and responsibility to protect the Capitol complex, staff and public while allowing the public to exercise their First Amendment rights … at the end of the day, both occurred without injury to protestors or officers."

Yet, the sources who talked to The Hill were furious that protesters were not stopped before reaching the Capitol.

"To get that close to the Capitol building, that is ridiculous," the second source said. "[Police] were told not to arrest anyone."

The second source added that police had to stand by and watch as protesters posed in front of their graffiti.

Tens of thousands of people rallied on the Mall and the Capitol complex Saturday in protest of the increased troop deployments and the war in Iraq.

I know a few people here and at SCD have posted inquiring about the Sgt. Test results only to get bashed by everyone else reading.
Part II of the last dick's test was in march of 2005 and the results were in our hands on 9 august 2005. Five months. How can the department justify holding these tests for 7 months? There has got to be something wrong here.
i am surprised that more people are not making a big deal about it. Either everyone thinks they did good and are waiting to see the scores, or no one cares.
Sorry, just venting.

That "fat fuck lieutenant" that you speak of, basically, is a real piece of work.

He IS the bad apple on an otherwise awesome afternoon crew..The W/C and the other LT are GREAT. I'm sorry you had to deal with him. At times, I wish my RDO's were the same as the W/C.

5 is bad enough as it is, and most people realize that. The coppers on the 3rd Watch are overworked, very young, and have a lot going on. This LT is the only one in the group (W/C, LT's, SGT's) that is an ass, and can not see that his actions keep an already low morale down.

Just mind your P's and Q's the next time you come into 5, and he is there. For example, he told the Tact Teams that he will only allow three people to search on warrants, him, the T/SGT, and the affiant of the warrant. He wants everyone else outside doing
security. That should tell you how this guy is. He will get a CR on you as fast as he can in order to save his soul.

It sounds like you were with TRU or SOS and you had to go to 5 for the day, which is probablly bad enough, then you had LT M there. How bad could it get? I'm sure yoy thought that once or twice. Rest assured, we deal with him daily, and it is no fun at all. At least you got to leave and will now know what to expect when you come back to 5.

I hope you get to run into CPT RW, or LT NP when you are ther next - you will appreciate them.

Stay safe

Sorry you were offended, sorry if the guy is fat. But believe it or not, he is the watch commander and if he wants to eat his chicken in peace then deal with it. You know there was a time on this job where, as a patrolman you knew not to bother the watch commander. You went to the desk sergeant and then he took anything to the watch commander that needed it. It's called chain of command. New coppers should remember that. And no I'm not a white shirt, still a p.o. after all these years, and still remember a time where there was order on this dept. and things ran better.

All this because the guy asked you to come back after he finished lunch? That particular Lt. can be gruff, but he is not a bad guy. Maybe he wasn't as polite as he could have been, but maybe he was having a bad day. Come on, all this anger and hate because you had to wait to have an arrest report approved? Sounds like you have some serious anger issues, or maybe you were just having a bad day. Anyway, lighten up.

ANYTHING MORE ON THAT LT. FLYNN, 15TH. DISTRICT. ?

1/29/2007 02:00:00 PM  
Anonymous Anonymous said...

I don't understand all this copper bashing copper nonsense (008, 009). Two hard working southside districts. Both have their fair share of problems, along with a good amount of working POLICEMAN. The bosses on all three watches are decent. The manpower is greatly under-staffed. With the exception of the few blog cop bashing bit@#$, the troops are workers. Both of these districts are slowly taking a turn for the worse, with 008 turning more into a ghetto with the relocation of all the project rats. 009 has a better class moving in all the time, especially in canaryville where property values are soaring. Unfortunately the back of the yards areas are still being over-run by a continuing gang population, who multiply like cockroaches. In these similar politically run districts, Jimmy Carroll and Gene Roy have their hands full. They are both constantly fed buckets of sh#$ and told by the POLITICIANS who run the city to make it smell like roses. They both have their personal armies at their disposal (TACT AND GANG TEAMS) whose sole purpose is to boost numbers and pi$% on all of the little fires that are started in the districts. These teams are mission related now, and no longer are thrown a set of keys each day, and head off with their own agenda. Downtown can be thanked for this. The tact lieutenants have their orders from the commanders, and this is sent down to the tact and gang sergeants, who no longer have their own agendas any longer. They in turn dictate this to the teams (sh@# rolls down hill). It is no wonder that morale is at an all time low AGAIN. In this modern age of policing, we are not pro-active, we are re-active. All of the bosses are deemed jag@#$# by the troops, so be it. But in today's climate this the order of the day. Hours are changed at the drop of a hat, and days off are cancelled. The hard working officers of the watches are fortunate to not be involved in most of this beaurocratic nonsense. It's still in a way, business as usual, find out what they want (the bosses), and give it to them. This philosophy will surely get you left alone, and not be singled out to be disciplined. As long as there is a police department, there will be complainers and whiners. Instead of writings on the bathroom wall or on paper in print, this "the blog" is the new means of venting. In conclusion, I applaud you exceptional hard workig officers, watch sergeants, tact and gang sergeants, watch and tact, tact and gang officers, lieutenants, and especially Commander's Jim Carroll, and Gene Roy, both of whom have incredible tasks at hand. Hats off to you. It is a pleasure to see two exempts with ba@$# big enough to not get caught up in all this mud slinging and venom spitting, by the same ingrates you probably took care of in the past. I the words of the immortal Mike Ditka: "THIS TOO SHALL PASS!" Kudos to you workers! To you whiners, who will never be happy, because of your own inadequecies, I pity you and pray for you. Remember, it's just a job, if you're not happy walk away...

Along those lines, at least 2 from Chicago were just deployed to A for a year. Both that I know of are patrolmen, one from 013 and one from mounted. Please pray for their safe return, as well as the safe return of all of our other servicemen and servicewomen.

Courtesy is one thing, if you get it back in return. He gets paid a shit load of money to sit on his ass half the time, in the safety of his office and then leave early for the day. He can give up a minute to approve some work. There are many good watch commanders that are quick to help their officers. So, don't give us your bullshit about 'when you become a boss' because if get the chance to be a boss, I hope to God I don't end up like that.

I'll tell you what's up with it: non-moderated commenting in the hands of bitter little children like most of the Area 5 dicks can be a terrible thing. Seems as though someone pointed out that just because you post a slanderous, libel filled diatribe full of alleged criminal acts like an anonymous coward, that doesn't mean that you can't be found, and held accountable.

WHoever is running that site did the right thing to save his/her own ass and deleted the crap that showed up there in the last 24 hours.

Don't like someone, want to be a little bitch and call them names from behind your keyboard? Have fun, but bringing people's families into your petty hate fest is just repugnant. And as far as the criminal allegations that were leveled, you proved that you don't deserve to call yourself a cop!

The person who runs that site had better get smart and take the same route that SCC was forced to take with the moderation. Some people just have absolutely no self-control.

Lt. M is a pretty decent guy. I have to work in 005, and I have never seen him jam someone up if he could help it. Big advocate of learning from your mistakes. I have been bitched at a couple of times for various shit I've done, but he's never got a C.R. on me. I prefer being scolded to having a record. He gives plenty of "for instance" advice if you need it, and is a great joker. Always willing to joke around and is serious when he needs to be.

I know you are probably from an outside unit, and I'm sorry so many of your guys got jammed up in B.S. But learn the chain of command, and respect it.

SCC you did a blog on cops in Chicago being outgunned a few months ago. It's a shame the cops in the department along with the F(L)OP don't get involved and push the city to right this wrong. Even though Chicago is a reactive city, certain incidents in the past few years have not changed a thing. There is supposedly a new weapon order coming out, but it is still for a carry pistol. Shotguns are the easiest weapon to master and the biggest psychological threat to the bad guys on the street. I wish the city would allow us to carry shotguns or long guns. Hell for that matter if the requirement was for us to buy our own, I would still do it. Hell, all it takes is for it to save your life one time. In LA when they had that bank robbery and the offenders had automatic weapons, the LA cops went to the gun stores and equipped themselves. We would have to drive to Dolton or Bensenville to get to a gun shop. Maybe all the cops don't agree with this. There may never be a time in your whole career you need to pull or shoot your weapon. But does that mean you shoud leave it at home because you probably won't need it. No, it is there for the unexpected. That is also why our department should look into allowing coppers to carry a shotgun or AR-15. Just for the simple fact it will be worth it if it saves just one cop or innocent civilians life. Let Cline and Daley find an argument for that. Especially in this day and age where people are shooting at the police 100 per cent more in the last few years than the 20-30 years prior. Maybe it's because Daley wants a warm and fuzzy police department. On second thought, leave the pistol at home and put a carnation in your holster. That would definetaly get you a merit promotion.

I've worked in 005 for about 5 years. I've worked midnites, afternoons, and days. Actually, I've had no problem with any of the bosses here at all, even CW
and KR on days. If you're doing your job, and doing it well, you can pretty much avoid any conflicts with bosses. I've seen the new commander a few times, and he seems like a decent enough guy.
Asks you how you're doing, etc. doesn't just hide in the office all day. I hear from guys I came on the job with who are in so-called "swell" places like 016 and 023 who don't like it there so much. Even though there's no place to really eat in peace, I can't think of too much negative I've experienced out here in Pullman. I think that wherever you work is as nice or as bad as you put into it.

Secondly, I happen to agree with the second poster about respecting the wc, etc. and have no issue when I'm told to come back later. But nobody has the right to yell and be completely disrespectful when I'm just trying to do my job. If the Dept wants to shove these streaming videos about courtesy and respect, they should at least have bosses that know how to treat P.O.'s like humans.

Especially greasy lieutenants that look like 50 pounds of sh*t stuffed into a 20 pound sack. Sorry, I couldn't resist another shot at lardass.

This Sgt. test bullshit needs to end. They lost the box and when they found it, it was open. What the fuck are you talking about. If the box was opened, it was because the box was misplaced and in the process of finding it all the boxes were opened.

One could say that not enough people passed the test, who within the department need to be promoted and the department can't justify throwing out four or five questions so certian people will pass and still can't make it.

Or the city did'nt pay the bill!
What happened to the money we put out to take the fucking thing?

Copied from a response regarding the current Sgt. testing. Obtained under the "Freedom of Information Act"


Due to the litigation filed in Federal Court regarding the arbitrative way of scoring some questions, the City is awaiting a legal opinion from the Corporation Counsel in regard to proceeding forward with this test or nullifying it.

So the answer is that the results are in limbo pending a legal opinion. So just relax and let it take its course. Better to have the test either kept or thrown out now than later.

It's scc's blog! That's what right they have. I enjoy reading this blog it's like the enquirer to me. I like it when it was in real time, but after awhile got completely out of hand. I've grown used to it like this and it's fine. If you've had your remarks censored then maybe you should leave all the slandering, vulgar comments out of it. My post have been outspoken, loud, not loud etc. and I've never been censored, what is your problem ?
ps Scc thank you for the entertainment!

I heard from my former sgt's previous watch commander's dog's veternarian that daley's dog ate 50 new Sgt's off the old list. Since they weren't very palitable they're going to make 50 from the old test and cover them with a tarp until they a found several months from now in a decrepit storeroom underneath FOP Hall. I know this for a fact because I am a dog after all and judging by the size of some of the new Sgt.'s, I'd spit them out too! Watch for a new Sgt's test to be administered sometime in the Spring of 2112 because that will coincide with Rush's new album "We're dead and nobody really cares!"



Did you morons get the hint? Even I can come up with more plausable rumors and misinformation than your no time on the job having ass!

When someone says something is "definate," you can almost always bet it's true. I have heard only one thing from a reliable source, and that is as soon as the department is sure that no one has a cause of action against them for promoting off the last list, the results will be mailed. I took that to mean that when the new sgts are sworn in the results would be out. Since they are sworn, I am guessing that the results will be in the mailbox within a day or two after they hit the streets. That's defanet.

Just mind your P's and Q's the next time you come into 5, and he is there. For example, he told the Tact Teams that he will only allow three people to search on warrants, him, the T/SGT, and the affiant of the warrant. He wants everyone else outside doing
security. That should tell you how this guy is. He will get a CR on you as fast as he can in order to save his soul.

I PASTED THE ABOVE COMMENT: HOLY SHIT BATMAN. THIS GUY HASN'T A CLUE DOES HE. SHAME SHAME - WHAT A STROKE. IT'S OBVIOUS, HE HAS NO FUCKING EXPERIENCE WRITING UP, OBTAINING AND EXECUTING A SEARCH WARRANT. YOU KNOW WHAT I WOULD DO IF I WERE YOU. YES, IT WILL COST YOU A POSITIVE, BUT IF HE PULLS THAT SHIT, AT THE LAST MOMENT - DON'T EXECUTE THE WARRANT. GET AN RD#, DOCUMENT IT IN YOUR CASE REPORT THAT IT WAS A NEGATIVE BECAUSE IT WAS AN UNSAFE CITUATION WHERE AS YOU COULD NOT EXECUTE YOUR WARRANT. YEAH, IT WILL CAUSE BAD BLOOD BUT WHAT THE FUCK. TEACH HIM A FUCKING LESSON THAT HE NEEDS TO HEAR AND LEARN.

THE AFFIANT AND HIS PARTNER SHOULD RUN THE SHOW WITH OF COURSE HIS SGT AND LT "MONITORING THEIR ACTIONS", BUT LET THE GUYS DO THEIR WORK AND LET THEM DECIDE WHO COMES IN, WHO IS ENTRY, WHO IS EVIDENCE GUY, WHO BABY SITS THE OCCUPANTS, WHO COVERS THE EXIT POINTS ETC. THATS EXACTLY WHY I DON'T DO SEARCH WARRANTS IN TRU. I CAN SEE THE SAME FUCKING STUPID SHIT HAPPENING THERE TOO.

Come on, all this anger and hate because you had to wait to have an arrest report approved? Sounds like you have some serious anger issues, or maybe you were just having a bad day. Anyway, lighten up.

1/29/2007 01:20:28 PM

-------------------

no officer, we're pissed cause nobody wants to do their job, bare minimum...

too much down time, waiting for the desk sgt taking her 4th cigarette break and 17th personal phone call while I'm trying to make 2 simple quick inventory drops. too much down time cause the w/c is reading a great article in guns n ammo, then wanting to see the ending of Siendfeld before he/she "thinks" about approving your pc and too much down time when lock up is having a sony playstation 3 competion of nba 2007, thats only after they eat their 3rd lunch and rewind the vhs movie they just watched. all the workn police want is for all the people involved in the arrest process is JUST TO DO THEIR JOB (bare minimum) not asking to jump through hoops naked singing Paula Abduls Greatest Hits Single while on fire spinning a plate on their finger tip. Just do their job, let us take up just a few seconds of their time in which they are getting paid for so we can get our workn asses back on the street to do more police work.

lazy, dog ass, mule or gangsta police will get pissed from my comments (oh well). the workn cop will say "hell yeah" and agree with me.

scc, keep up the good work. your blog is awesome!

I happen to agree with the second poster about respecting the wc, etc. and have no issue when I'm told to come back later. But nobody has the right to yell and be completely disrespectful when I'm just trying to do my job.
-------------------------
Like the other supervisor asked: Did you knock on the W/C's door before you entered his office? If not, I would have yelled, too. And, if you did not, you were not showing any respect to the Lt., so you don't deserve any.

FROM THE TRIBUNE TODAY:

Blackened ceiling panels and flying insects inside the building were the first clues for detectives at the Grand Central Area headquarters that something was amiss in their workplace.

Detectives complained.

After years of obvious water damage on the second floor of the large police station at Grand and Central Avenues on the Northwest Side, a state inspector found serious hazard levels of mold in the building, according to an Illinois Department of Labor report obtained by the Tribune.

Some detectives said the Police Department has largely ignored conditions that the inspector from the Labor Department's Safety Inspection and Education Division called "unsafe and unhealthful working conditions" in a Jan. 4 citation. The citation gave the Police Department 30 days to fix the problems.

The report described ceiling tiles black with mold all over the second floor of the building. "Ceiling panels had either been removed or had fallen due to water retention, badly stained ceiling panels, and gross dust build-up on air vents at homicide detectives' offices," according to the report.

The problem has been traced to a dilapidated and leaky roof, police spokeswoman Monique Bond said. The city is making plans to replace the roof this spring, she said.

Detectives who work in the second-floor offices said the dust in the air and damp conditions have left some employees fighting persistent allergy symptoms, raising concerns that all of them will face problems down the road after working for years in the office.

"You can really smell it," said one detective, who spoke on condition of anonymity.

The Fraternal Order of Police asked for the Labor Department inspection after receiving many complaints from union members that "the air quality was bad and there was some kind of gnat throughout the building," said FOP Financial Secretary Tim Fallon. "It looks like a building in disrepair."

Last week workers wearing masks started tearing out and replacing ceiling tiles while detectives worked at their desks. This week, sources said, some of the new tiles are already stained.

This week numerous detectives and employees at the office filled out "injured on duty" forms, citing the conditions, according to sources.

State inspector John Bastert, who has overseen the investigation, acknowledged that the probe was ongoing but declined to comment on the substance of the findings.

IF THIS WAS IN 35TH AND MICHIGAN I BET THEY'LL TEAR DOWN THE WHOLE BUILDING!!

Sorry you were offended, sorry if the guy is fat. But believe it or not, he is the watch commander and if he wants to eat his chicken in peace then deal with it. You know there was a time on this job where, as a patrolman you knew not to bother the watch commander. You went to the desk sergeant and then he took anything to the watch commander that needed it. It's called chain of command. New coppers should remember that. And no I'm not a white shirt, still a p.o. after all these years, and still remember a time where there was order on this dept. and things ran better.

1/29/2007 01:14:31 PM

Thats fine and I certianly could agree with you on that, however, it was not the officers that decided to have the watch commanders approve the arrests, it was the bosses themselves, and knowing that in a place as busy as 005 (back-logs, raps etc..) it would only make sense to approve an officers arrest report as quickly as possible to put that officer back on the streets. Laziness should never be tolerated, it's not like you NEVER get a minutes rest being an acting W/C.

You know guys, I work in an office downtown, Everyday, the people I work with come in and go to this website. They have the biggest laugh and think that the Chicago police are a bunch of whining losers. If it's a good one, like the whining about parking, they get on the phone and call their friends to check the website.

You're not getting any sympathy with all this complaining, they get parking tickets all the time.
The more you beef, the more they want Mayor Daley to be re-elected.

Another sad note, that "fat fuck lieutenant" that you keep talking about, he's my neighbor and in my time of need at 2 in the morning when my husband suffered a heart attack, he was there for me and got the ambulance, stayed with my kids until my mom arrived and was there for my husband and my family the whole time he was in the hospital.

Please be careful, but you don't realize the harm you're doing to yourselves.

HI. I just posted about how I work in an office and everyone checks your website, I was telling my friend here at work what I posted and she stated "when you read the hate and vindictiveness they spew at each other and atthe public, it makes it easier to believe those who get on the 10 o'clock news and tell stories of how the police beat them up or stole their money.
After reading their "cop blog" you can see that all these people can't be lying, there are some mean, rotten policemen out there."

Yes it was the bosses that decided to approve the arrest reports. However that is their perogative, because they are bosses. Just like it is their perogative to tell you to wait till they are done with their chicken. WHY?? Because they are bosses and we are not. Same thing goes in the private sector as well. you don't like things, then open up your little general order book, get some coffee and study the pimples off your ass and become a boss then newbie, you could one day tell me to get the fuck out of your office and I will tell you " no prob boss."

In the first place, this site isn't here for a bunch of nosey office workers who are apparently disillusioned with their pathetic lives. This is for the police. If you MUST sneak a peak to brighten up your otherwise drab life, fine, just don't think what you have to say matters.
It doesn't.
We love how people like you bash us and then can't dial 911 fast enough when their neighbor's car is parked without a permit or some crap like that. You DESERVE to have daley as your mayor, you are so clueless.
Lastly, just because that Lt was so great to you, a neighbor, doesn't mean a thing. Big deal.
He should treat everyone with such kindness.
In closing, might I suggest that the next time you or one of your co-workers get stopped by the police, tell them what a "whining loser" they are instead of whining yourself trying to get out of a well-deserved ticket, in other words, put your money where your mouth is or stfu lady.
