World Wide Influence

Sitemeter stats show a slight decline of about 200 to 400 visitors a day to this site after the Department did a blanket banning of any and all "blogspot" accounts. That's OK by us - we aren't losing any sleep or money over it and we appreciate all the people who check us out daily from their homes, libraries, public school fixed posts and the uncensored computers down at 35th Street (yes, we know you're out there visiting - hi!). But still, 2,500 hits a day is probably 2,450 more than the "official" CPD blog.

We were scanning the other stats checking out foreign visitors and we had a visitor from Albania, Saudi Arabia, and for the first time we can remember, Parow, South Africa. So SCC is now known and read in FIVE continents (North America, Europe, Asia, Australia, and Africa). Our plan to take over the world from Seiser proceeds apace. If anyone has friends in South America, we'd like a few visits from our southern neighbors and anyone who can direct traffic to us from Antarctica will be made honorary "Seiser for a day."

In the meantime, an open post to amuse everyone.

Open post? OK, Things that bug me after 37 years on the job: Why hasn't the DEPT. made the FTO, which is "THE MOST IMPORTENT JOB" in this Department, D2A pay to try to induce "COMPETENT Officers" to take this assignment, which is presently a "THANKLESS ASSIGNMENT'.2)why do all the specialized units, and D units have no "NEW' department resources in the cars. All the radios are the old SABRES, all the PDT's are 2nd generation and don't work, and alway's out of range. 3) All vehicles in most specialized units are hand me downs from "PATROL" and are usually "USED AND ABUSED". For a DEPT. that is SUPPOSED to PRIDE itself in MODERN TECHNOLOGY it is "ALL SMOKE AND MIRRRORS" OUR ALLEGEDLY "SPECIALIZED UNITS" are "WOEFULLY not UP TO DATE in technology that might help in the overall CRIME SOLUTION RATE. Call me "CRAZY" "BUT" We claim to be in the forefront of police technology but in fact, "WE SUCK" This is coming from a a 37 year VET that "LOVES THIS JOB". Just a thought to share, THanks for Listening. Stay safe.

Here's a great question. Just what exactly does the person sitting in the guard shack over by 37th and Iron do?

And where can I sign up for that?

Why...because the mayor hates us. Because this city and this department are full of shit.

Did anyone notice that Special Bulletin "From South Chicago to Gold Star Park." According to the bulletin, the St. Jude march is not going to be on Michigan Ave this year. The parade route will assemble at Gold Star Park. That's understandable, but I'm gonna miss Michigan Ave though. It will be a special day, as it always is, no matter where we march. Stay safe.

I agree with the first person who posted about FTO's getting D2A pay. The FTO program needs an enema.

There is a department wide dearth of resources--I have been in a new district for three weeks I have yet to have a PDT. Amazing we have money for cameras and blackberrys and segways and hi-tech licence plate readers but no PDTs---the emperor has no clothes but he has a stutter or a Walrus mustache take your pick

The official department blogspot is not moderated, it's censored worse than mail at Statesville. After all those inane "good job" "great work" comments about something, all I posted was "When is the group hug?". No profanity, just a little humor and a bit of satire. It never made the site. They must not understand that a little bit of dissent to banter over is a good thing.

Learn how to spell "important" and you'll get the recognition you long for.

Don't vote for Alderman Banks, or anyother sitting Alderman.

Especially any one that was appointed by Daley and has to kiss his ring, which is in his back pocket.
