SOS Cops Plead Not Guilty

  • one more set of indictments coming down - involving supervisors?;
  • every one of the people at 311 will be gone before the end of the year;
  • charges will be filed with the Police Board to fire the "cooperating individuals" who've testified in front of the Grand Jury - they won't be charged criminally, but administratively separated
This might end up as the largest mass firing in CPD history. It's certainly a black eye for the Department and we'll bet it doesn't get mentioned on their blog. It's also raising the profile of one of the candidates for the Superintendent vacancy due to occur sometime this year - Kirby.

But we also have to wonder if the recent perjury by a former head of IAD is going to besmirch the reputation of anyone coming out of that office. Combined with Maher falling out of favor due to poor clearance rates and personality conflicts, Skahill is looking more and more like a front runner.

Who's got some speculation on the next Supe?

Maher falling out of favor has nothing to do with clearence rates. While the upper echlon can't admit to mistakes in the promtional process, they can stall even a "meteor's" rise!
Bet on Kirby.

if we had the cops on the street that we need (3,000+ short), maybe that poor young man wouldn't have been murdered right out in the open.

I'm keeping my fingers crossed for a true outsider to Chicago politics...but won't hold my breath. Williams will be going with Cline and Starks after the election. Kirby and Grau are 3-1 odds. SCARY but realistic thought: after a 36 year old f/2 took the top spot as Chief of Police in DC, look to an openly gay man around the same age named Ron Hubberman to make history in Chicago. I give him 6-1 odds. God save the C.P.D.

Williams will be your next superintendent, and Dugan will be the First Deputy. Kirby will move up, to one of the Deputy Superintendent's spots. Possibly Molloy's job if he leaves.

It is time for an outsider to do the top job. The flawed hiring practices of the Department are to entrenched, and need to be changed. This is the biggest problem with this job. The promoting of people based on "merit" when "merit" has nothing to do with it. Lets get an outsider.

If these idiots at SOS were doing armed robberies and home invasions, then anybody who co-operates with that investigation is not a rat in my book. They are police officers doing the job they are sworn to do. That is "they are serving and protecting the community" from armed felons. The only reason any co-operating persons should get in trouble is because they were in on it long ago and did nothing about it.

I am getting sick and tired of these coppers convicted by us before they are tried.
I'm not saying that some might not be guilty of some things. But I have asked around with some investigators involved in the case, and from what I have been told, with some it is a slam dunk conviction but with some of the others MAJOR HEADACHES have occured, such as po's not working when alledged crimes occured, no money irregularities found.
If they are guilty then F*ck them, we didn't need them anyway. But give them their day in court first!

I have worked for many Commanders in my career, to include Hiram Grau.

He was the only one who ever took the time to write a personal note on stationary paper "thanking" the officer for a job well done and attaching it with a paperclip to the Honorable Mention certificates that he signed.

I received 3-4 when I worked for him and he did this "jesture" every time. (Not some form letter, but a handwritten note)

The guy is "top shelf". A real class act.

He would make an outstanding Superintendent.

THAT UNFORTUNATELY IS THE REASON WHY HE WON'T GET IT..BECAUSE HE IS COMPETENT!

You heard it here!!!

Slam dunk certain - heard from a friend, who heard from a fried, who heard from a friend, who the next Supt. will be.

As slam dunk certain as any rumor could be.

Brian Murphy - First Assistant Chief of Staff to the Mayor - Lt. of Police on LOA. Picked by his honor to head up the Water Department when Tomczak spilled his guts over Hired Truck. When things got hot again at Water he was moved to the Chief of Staff's Office to oversee Public Safety issues. 19th Ward Power House pick. Connected to the Joyce's the Hynes' and other 19th Ward operatives. Rumored to be one of only 5 to 6 people the Mayor truly trusts. Son of an ex copper (same name). If the apple fell close to the tree this would be a great pick.

Speculation sure - but to any of us who were around when LeRoy Martin was chosen we know stranger things have happened.

There is a need for more important equipment like computers and cameras in the cars....We are one of the largest revenue producing agencies in the City next to Property Tax and we don't even have computers to do our job properly....but we have a Hummer!! Hey Dep Williams....what the hell are you thinking?? How about getting us the computers that we began to impliment ohhhhhh....3 - 4 years ago and still havent completed...thats a shame...we are a joke of a police department...instead of starting several different programs how about finishing ONE?? Cameras...New PDT'S...New Computers in Stations...New radios...Laser Radars...Here is my opinion... buy 50 lasers and put 2 in every district...buy 50 cameras and outfit 3 districts...now the hard part....ready?? The money that those Laser Radars make should ONLY be used to buy MORE Radars....and NOTHING else until the entire dept is outfitted or those units are paid for...and when they are paid for use the revenue to purchase more cameras as they are a traffic safety / enforcment issue....same for the cameras..let the buy themselves and use the revenue to buy MORE CAMERAS not trucks...or desks...or unrelated nonsense...this is the departments problem...they dont use the money properly they dont complete a program once its started...they loose perspective and act on whims or tangents...lets make this dept operational and concentrate out revenue in areas that are most productive and make sense....

No...but, based on his arrogance and liberal philosophy, and taking into account who might want the job and put up with his arrogance, I would go with Skahill first, then Kirby, and maybe a hispanic (the chief of OCD) as a darkhorse.....

The budget cuts hit the State's Attorney Office last week. And of course, some competent, highly skilled and pro police ASA were fired. I guess Dick Devine forgot that he has an ASA in Br 42 that has 50 years of service, which we are greatful for, but would have been a great canidate to cut due to budgetary restraints. Also in Br 42...ASA Loftus, I bet you wish you hadn't run for Judge. I wonder if that is why they let you go? And lastly, my favorite ASA in Br 42. ASA Lovelace was let go too. She is/was the most qualified, competent ASA in Br 42. Very pro police, an advocate for the citizens of Crook County and made herself available should you have legal questions or in need of advice.

CAN YOU HELP?

E-mail State’s Attorney Devine at stateattorney@cookcountygov.com and First Assistant Bob Milan at KDalca@cookcountygov.com asking for the reinstatement of ASA Lovelace.

Promoted off the list legitimately to Sgt. and Lt. with less than ten years on the job? Give me a break! NOBODY gets those kind of promotions with that little amount of time on legitimately. This guy has more clout in his little finger than most of us have in our whole body.

2/22/2007 06:10:00 AM


You're right...However, Murphy was a phenomonal copper in 007 and WASN'T arrogant. I had no idea he had that kind of clout. Fastest white guy you've ever seen. He didn't jump over fences. He glided..no kidding!!

The Hummer is assigned to the airport and was recieved from the fire department. The purpose of the hummer is to be able to move across airport ground (large areas of grass between runways) effectively and quickly in case of an emergency out on a plan or the runways.

Will this serves as a good purpose out there, there is no reason that thing should be driven all the way from the airport to 35th just for show, what of something happened out there?

Of course I could all be wrong here is they went out and bought another one

No it's not true but somebody followed him from the Emerald Isle shitfaced behinf the whhel of his car. He's got to go he is a disgrace to all of us in blue. He is so dumb that when asked by WGN if he was drunk he said no, they then followed it up byasking if he was buzzed and he responded maybe a little bit. The video is on YOU TUBE now.

By the way if you live or know somebody that lives in the 41st ward vote for Don Markham or ask some one to vote for him, he's one of us.

Signed,
Disgusted by the services we receive in the 41st.

Don't know this Murphy guy. Never heard of him. But you can be promoted by test score to sgt and lt with under ten years. I came on in 1998, made sgt in 2002. Just took the lt test last month. If i do get promoted before Nov 2008, that's under ten years. There were several people in my sgt class with 4-6 years on.

the decision makers on this department have their heads up their asses.

cars are falling apart. half the cars dont have pdts or pdts that dont work.

the stations dont have enough computers to process prinsoners. 3-4 hour down time to wait for computers to become available and its not even summertime yet.

i'm all for getting with the times and coming out of the stone age, but give us the tools to do our job. dumb asses keep waisting more money like on robots, hummers, pole camera's. get your fucking priority's straight.

to all the dispatchers. you are our life line out there. my hats off to the good ones. we all know who you are; believe me and we do appretiate you.

now as for all the others. give it up. go try another line of work. you're going to get us killed out there. stop blowing my plate or name off and telling me its clear no record or he/she is clear. then, thinking something is fishy because of your attitude, we run the plate or name on a passing cars pdt and discovered the plate is registered or the person has a license or is wanted. that happens all too often.

hey mush mouth. close the portable dvd player lid, take your hand out of the chip bag and do your job.you know who you are.

stopppp asking "what are you chasing him for". if i have information that others need to know asap and may put others in harms way, i'll tell you! stopp asking stupid questions and just stick to getting me help and repeating the description and location to people listening.

stoppp asking "did you get the drugs or gun recovered". give us a fucking few minutes to do our job already.

supervisors are monitoring the radio. stop waisting critical moments taking up the air asking for a supervisor and let the pursuing officers give out the description and location of the vehicle fleeing. how about putting your main attention on "immediately" running the plate and come back with the registration so we know right away what we're dealing with or maybe where the car lives and putting your attention on getting me help so we can end the pursuit quickly.

just because the call states "annonymous", doesnt' mean its bullshit. it means the caller at least called the fucking police about a crime but doesnt want the offenders to know their name, address or telephone #. shit, i'm the police and when i call i drive to give all the details i can, but i too, want to remain annonymous.

have a good day.

having never met brian doherty, i can only pass on what i've heard. i've heard he likes to drink. i've heard he gets himself in bad positions at times when he's drinking. but...everytime i have called his office, i've gotten a quick response. everytime a neighbor of mine has called him, they have gotten a quick response. so he likes to drink... does that make him a bad guy ? how many big bosses on this job are drinkers ? being a drinker doesn't mean that you can't do a good job when you are on the clock. and unlike many of the aldermen, i've never heard of him being under investigation for taking bribes or having drugs in his house.

Bullshit - 1997/1998 test was the one they instituted the "probabtion plus 2 years to take the test - 6 years to get promoted rule." If you got promoted off that test with under 6 years, you just opened up a huge can of worms in the entire testing process. There's people out there who might be owed about 6 or 7 years back pay as a sgt now.

SO IF YOU HAVE FAMILY OR FRIENDS THAT LIVE IN NAPERVILLE TELL THEM PRADEL IS THE WAY TO GO. GOOD GUY HAS DONE ALLOT FOR NAPERVILLE , HE IS ALSO A REIRED NAPERVILLE POLICE COMMANDER AND IS PRO-POLICE - PRO-MILITARY. HE WAS ALSO INSTRUMENTAL IN BUILDING THE 9/11 MEMORIAL IN THE NAPERVILLE RIVERWALK.

Oh yeah Brian has been great for the 41st ward. He gave me a storm blocker for my sewer and it flooded my basement. Then when I call and asked him to take it back he said no problem.

Ramsey has no interest in CPD. He has been the longest Police Chief in Washington's history, 9 years!
He just retired, and is happy enjoying his life.

He was not made Superintendent of CPD because at that time he was loved by the police and especially the citizens of Chicago, largely because of the CAPS program. Citizens received services they normally never received. Mayor Daley knew he was creating his biggest opponent if he were appointed. He is one of the most innovative police officers in the history of CPD.

I am sure someone will find something negative to say, that only confirms my statement. :-)

He would be doing us a favor if he came back. Too much BS with any current boss to be an effective Superintendent.

I've spoke with numerous co-workers that worked with Charlie as a patrolmen and he was a ballbuster back then too. I wish he would make supt. Cline in a tella tubby that loves the camera and smooshes the public with bullshit after bullshit. Starks, I'll leave it as "he needs to retire already".

Charles Ramsey was a wholly made subsidary of Barbara Mc Donald. Just think about it kids. After Chuckie left for DC Babs adopted the little lad from Isreal. And now, presto, we have Ron Huberman. Remember kids both of these lads are the byproduct of a liberal Northeastern socialist. If Chuckie were to come back "Together we Can" would be changed to "lets all take it in the can."

Risley will not be the Supe, he will also be retiring when Cline goes.
