Daley off the Ballot?

Don't bet the mortgage payment on it. This is still C(r)ook County, a wholly owned subsidiary of the Daley Machine. Still, it's amusing to see the media in a panic:
  • Elections officials will review about 19,000 signatures on nominating petitions filed by Mayor Richard M. Daley to get on the ballot for next month's election. Supporters of one of Daley's challengers have questioned the validity of the signatures to try to knock Daley out of the Feb. 27 election.
  • Daley's campaign submitted nearly 28,900 signatures. Of those, 9,000 signatures were not objected to, which means Daley needs about 3,500 more signatures to pass muster to make it onto the ballot.
Entertaining, yes. Reason to celebrate? Not a chance. Or at least, not yet.

weve heard in the blog about 008 that people have a problem with the "b"team in 009...if the other p.os in 009 arent man enought to say it to our face then that just shows the how much of cowards they are....just like the work they do..if they had some balls maybe they would be in our shoes and not be crying about us and watching from the sidelines...we actually go out there and work and get it done, dont be jealous cause we are in civ dress and get to do our thing out on the street, we got there by hard work and being aggressive, why dont the rest of you try it and quit your cryin. if you got somethin to say, come up to us and say it and ill tell you what im sayin now right to your face..

I concur. You cowards in 009 who keep posting about the B team will never amount to crap! Keep talking your shit and you'll be sorry! You are full of envy, because we make you look so useless. Many of us should be upstairs on the 009th District tact team, but due to not having a phone call--cannot. J.W, a real hard charging copper, was promised a slot on tact and still has yet to receive it. He was a suburban copper before many of you even conceived the idea of being CPD. So there.
Some of you do-nothing coppers have never been asked to be Area 1 Saturation-J.W was asked several times. Ask his old partner M.D on 009 tact how good he was? Why? He is a REAL POLICE go-getter. Something you asshats will never be.
You are either with us or you are against us. Many of us could care less what you think anymore. We finally were noticed for our aggressive police work. Many of us run circles around tact in 009. Beat 915 has never been patroled harder than when J.W and J.S were on it. Sgt B.L noticed them and the others and gave us a team of our own. Maybe if you weren't so busy sitting on jobs, taking long lunches, sitting around at Tulsa power and chatting with the front desk so much, then you would have been asked to join?
Truth hurts don't it?

Hey Fucknut! POST your name on the blog and this p.o from the late side of the house will personally make sure you sure you KNOW he has no problem telling you what a bunch of tools you are!
I'll compare my numbers to any of you-anytime! Except for M.G-she writes too many fucking parkers and I could care less about making the City money.
You ALL know you are a bunch of self-serving mutts who only got "made" because you kiss Buddy's ass! Remember, we ALL saw the way he would always call an outdoor roll call for you clowns! Buddy used the same units all the time. Surprise-he's doing it again!
Here's the thing: NONE OF US REAL POLICE WANT TO BE A "B" REJECT!!!
You really want to go there?
Are you intimidated by those of us who KNOW your new team is an insult to the working pos in 009?
Show us what you're made of...and we'll show you what dogasses you REALLY are!!!!!!! WOOF WOOF

This whole "B" team this is a joke. I work in 009 and know most of these "B" team officers, most of which are nice guys but not very good coppers. I have seen at least 2 who could not hack it on tact (RR LS). These guys are out there making fools of themselves always on the radio and ALWAYS coming empty.
So to say these guys got here by hard work is a joke, none of these guys will never impress me!!

You're in civilian clothes because you are aggressive? Hmmm...Why aren't R.S, S.K or P.K on the "B" team? Shit! S.K even made the Chicago Enforcers football team he's so badass.
Hey tuff guy, the entire 3rd Watch knows those guys are the MOST crazy and feared asskickers in 009!!! NOBODY wants to be on their shitlist. Don't get anymore aggressive than those guys and they weren't chosen! By the way, they were ALL late rapids before your lame unit came to play.
Tell them they can watch you on the sidelines...Go on...I triple dog dare you! Nice try...

If Daley is out then Phil goes. If Phil goes, then Moreen Biggane-Diaz-Kennedy-Diaz doesn't make Lt. One can only hope that the house mouse from Phil's office doesn't get promoted like Michelle Engstrom. Of course when it happens The meritorious will also be rewarded with a spot in a good district for a couple of months then back to where all the real police work happens---35th and Michigan where the meritorious go to enhance a do nothing career.

The papers say M. Lavelle is Daley's lawyer for this vote challenge. Lavelle actually wrote most of the Illinois election laws so it's highly unlikely Mr. daley has much to worry about.

How can anyone say it to your face when you didn't leave your name tough guy? Face it the only one who rightfully belongs on that “team” is MG the rest of you people either don't have the numbers and/or time on the job to justify being picked. Funny, before being picked for that “team” none of you officers, with the exception of MG, did any kind of aggressive police work. Now that you’re on the “team” your have all become super cops. The only thing that you are getting done is alienating us, fracturing the watch, and screwing the rest of us.

Anyone bitching about this, one side or the other, needs to just shut up and work. You all sound like a bunch of 5 year-olds. Anyone in civilian dress who thinks they are better than anyone else is a clown and should know better. Anyone who bitches about having to answer calls, regardless of how many you get, is a clown and should just do their job. Grow up, people. 009 is a good place to work, with mostly good PO's and mostly good supervisors. Bitch about the new WC's policies, but I haven't seen any time due slips handed back in roll call yet. You want to hang out at TP, no one cares as long as you handle the calls you get. You want to doze off at the hole, no one cares as long as you handle the calls you get. We're all adults, which means that you should worry about how you're conducting your business rather than keep looking at everyone else. Bitch about the "B" team or TRU or whatever, but everytime I've needed some help, they're just as likely to show up as the rest of us. Grow up. Enough said.

Is this "B" unit nonsense true? I used to work in 009 way back in the 90's and we always prided ourselves of being plain old good coppers.
We would never pretend to be something we were not. Men were men and cops were real. We backed each other like champions.
"B" unit sounds a little too much like "G" Unit. That's just sad!
I guess 009 has learned to develop a multiple personality like the others.
My question is this? Why all the animosity on this blog towards the "B" team? If they are the MOST aggressive police officers and cannot get on tact, then don't they deserve to be taken care of?
Sometimes change in a district is good. As long as the dogass cars are the ones suffering-who gives a rat's ass?
Give up the hatred towards the new "B" team, because they are here to stay. Besides, they obviously earned the right to be where they are. Nuff said.

If a corrupt city government was serious about political reform, they would estabish the RECALL REFERENDUM and TERM LIMITS for elected officials.

The New York City Council has 51 seats to Chicago's 50. If representation was based on the NYC population, Chicago would only be alloted 18 or 19 city council members (ward aldermen).

Obviously, Chicago's notoriously corrupt City Council is analogous to "the foxes guarding the chicken coop."

"Chicago ain't ready for reform."
AND IT NEVER WILL BE.

How bout this for news, today 12 Jan 2007 the Chicago Board of Elections voted to allow 2 former alderman, both federally convicted and served federal time to be allowed on the ballots for the upcoming election. YES THEY ARE RUNNING FOR ALDERMAN AGAIN. Only in this f----d up City can you get elected, take care of your friends, steal what you want and use your position to steal, get arrested, get convicted, serve time, get out, appeal to a bullshit board of elections, possibly get re-elected and do it all again. The board members said they are rehabilitated and deserve a second chance. WOW I'M gonna run for alderman. What a f----d up City this is. Maybe one of them can help me get promoted by merit. Boy I HATE this city. Only 8 more years to go.

As a white guy who doesn't like Daley, it is the "our turn" attitude that makes me hesitant to vote for Doc Walls. Rather than your turn or my turn, (hint I am not connected, it has never been my turn)how about making it a turn for fairness. Now that would be a switch.

You're right Mr. B team guy! If only we sucked up to Sgt B.L as much as you, then we too, could be the truly "elite" B team....Zzzzzz
You guys bored us to death while you were beat cars, so why would this be any different?
Rico? hardwork? Is this you trying to be macho? Go gorge on some more burritos fatboy!
Judging by the idiotic statement, one could figure out it's your 009 tact wannabe ass trying to threaten us left behind. Still pissed you cannot hang with the REAL POLICE upstairs?
Yeah, we'll be sitting on the sidelines alright...when you Supercops fall neck deep into shit and make 009 yet another CPD scandal!
Your lapa sgt won't throw himself under a bus to save your career. He's had too many "awww shits" in his short career already.
Yeah, you supercops are the ones who will get the job done...Ha!

You can never underestimate the utter stupidity of the Chicago electorate.

Peraica carried only 13 of the 50 wards over the Toddler in November. The Republican won only five wards by sixty percent or more:

The 41st, 45th and 38th Wards in 016. The 42nd and 43rd Wards in 018.

Meanwhile, the Board of Elections has deemed "Silver Shovel" convicted felons Ambrosio Verdano and Virgil Jones eligible to run for office on February 27th.

This is the only major city in the nation that takes a perverse pride in municipal corruption.

Thanks Daley for making housing in a decent neighborhood with a good school unaffordable for the police. Thank you for making property taxes more than a car note. Thanks for making me work 2 part time jobs just to make ends meet. Thanks for keeping me stressed by promoting idiots to lead our department, making me work 6 straight days though it has been proven by experts to be the worst schedule for our type of work, and making sure I am not home to raise my own kids, making sure my wife is at home by herself, goes to church, family functions, kids games, etc. as a single parent. Thanks for giving me a 1.5% raise as the cost of living far surpasses it.

Thanks for appointing a Superintendent that is more interested in taking care of his people than placing those persons in jobs that will benefit the whole department and not just the few that are making 20,000 - 50,000 more a year. Oh yeah, thanks again for watching this department crumble. Did you know that hardly any of the units work together to accomplish anything, just read any of these blogs, it is the same in every day life as the police, rather you work on 35th, a district or a unit.

Last thing, did I tell you that I am looking forward to watching my health deteriorate each year and our health benefits deteriorate even faster, my wife leaving me for my partner or the mail man, my kids acting out for whatever reason and dealing with the asshole Captains you keep promoting and sending to this damn district.

Did I kiss the ring?
