And It Never Ends

Yesterday's Sneed "Scoop" (which has been hinted at here for at least a month) ....
  • Sneed hears the next chapter of a police scandal involving corruption in the Chicago Police Department's Special Operations Section is being written in bold print.

    • Translation: Word is when the ongoing probe is complete, it could add up to the Chicago Police Department's biggest corruption case ever . . . because the probe is moving up the ladder beyond the patrolmen involved.

  • The Chicago Police Department is bracing for new corruption charges in an ongoing investigation involving several supervisors in the department's Special Operations Unit.
  • The big question now is when will the charges come down? And how many people will be indicted?
  • According to law enforcement sources, at least one Chicago police sergeant and one lieutenant are in the hot seat and could be indicted down the road for their alleged involvement in a corruption scandal that has already resulted in charges against seven officers in the elite special operations section.
We're just numb. Our nerve endings are completely shot. We never figured on completely ignoring the seedier side of the job when we started blogging, but we never imagined a year like this either where it completely dominates everything we post. Whatever.

A note to the media:

Please stop refering to SOS as "elite."

All you need to get in there is a phone call. That's all.

And if they indeed were so "elite," that would mean they are the best CPD has.

It is quite obvious they are not.

Please forgive me, this is very long.....
Man, I just don't get it. Why the hell would you do this? I can honestly see the drug addict copper that wasn't properly screened by our THREE background investigators doing this kind of shit. I can see the gambler, whore monger, etc doing this type of shit. We do have those on this department just based on past experience and national statistics. I don't see the normal everyday copper deciding to be a shithead. I just don't fucking get it. I have had large cash seizures on street stops and search warrants (not like a million, but large enough that some $ wouldn't be missed unless counted by the Feds) and never EVER considered taking a dime. Yes, we joked about it and were vigilant about who was around it, but never even considered it. I just don't get it. Why would you jeopardize your LIFE for that kind of shit? And I mean life. Even if you are on your ten weeks and have no family, you have to live with the record of being a fucking criminal for the rest of your life. If you have a family and have been on this job for a while and don't have the luxury of another career that doesn't look at your background you are FUCKED. WHY WOULD YOU EVEN THINK ABOUT DOING SOMETHING LIKE THIS? This isn't a, "He ran from me and made me rip my pants on the fence" smack in the head at the heat of the moment type stuff. That does happen and the police SHOULD be exonerated for stuff like that. Joe citizen does not lose his job, pension, and freedom because he slapped a fleeing criminal when he caught him. I know it happens in those fuckedup suburbs and with juries and insurance companies, but not the norm..... This is a fucking theft/robbery/extortion, etc... I am in no way saying the people that are accused or going to be accused are guilty of anything because I did not run the investigation and don't know much about it; (other than the FIBS transcript that was on SCS but, If they are; WHY WOULD YOU DO THIS TO YOURSELVES AND YOUR FAMILIES? I don't get it. Residency sucks, Taxes in Chicago Suck, The fact that we're treated like 2nd class citizens sucks, the fact that everything in Chicago is about RACE AND POLOTICS sucks. I know that and we all know that. That doesn't matter. What matters to me is that, no matter how much I get pissed off at all of this bullshit: I still like my job. You must realize that I no longer LOVE my job. I have wanted to be the police for a large part of my life. I did come on with a degree from a good college (Non-City) when only G.E.D. was needed but I do think the department should once again lower the education requirement to high school graduate or military experience. I think everyone should get a degree if it does not create too much of a hardship for their families especially when the City still pays re-imbursement. That is a perk that is going away fast. The education does help (if it has some constitutional law, civil liability, and labor law classes especially) with the stigma we all have as uneducated buffoons that do nothing that beat people. Hard for the news to say that the city is full of brutal uneducated rogue cops when we all have degrees. But to get back to ME: I really do love my job. I love to catch the bad guy. I love to solve the crime. I love to help the little kid that was left in his fucking high chair by the crack addict mother overnight, even though some stupid fucking lawyer who is now a judge will let give that same child to the mother until he dies, at least I have some hope that the worst will happen to mother and the child will live with a family that loves him/her and makes sure that he/she prospers. I love that fact that I get to drive around and try and find the missing part of the puzzle. I love the fact that people who were in an accident; but are alright, love to see me. I just really like to get the bad guy. Trust me when I tell you your response and demeanor is everything to these people. Think about how your mother/father/sister/brother/uncle/aunt/ETC would want an officer to respond and do that. You will like your job more if you do. If they treat you like an ass, then change tactics. For those of you who ever work on a murder investigation and are able to piece together the clues to get a murderer charged and convicted...There is few better feelings other tan saving someone on this job. I know this is long and kind of stupid, but just think about it. We have a great job if you think about what you get out of it. W do get decent pay (not to start, but to finish), we have a GOOD medical policy, a good vacation system, we drive around in someone else’s car with someone else’s gas, can defend our family better than most because we are legally aloud to carry a firearm, and we hopefully respect what we do. Please respect our profession, or honor, and our fallen officers. God bless you and keep doing the Lords work.

You can rest assured that Ron H. will protect the play Marine Matt T. throughout his whole fiasco.

Been around a long time - never ceases to amaze me how things go on in this City and no one in authority knows what’s happening. The Mayor knows nothing of the hiring scandal - but he knows if Graphic Arts at City Hall spent $36.78 on what he considered a frivolous expenditure on a desk calendar (I'm not kidding - he sent a memo personally on the issue). He micro-manages everything but can't see Rome's burning like another pompous emperor of the past. Along the same line of thinking, how could all of this happen at SOS during the reign of Matt the 1st without him having a clue? That’s it by George; anyone who has ever been around him knows he's clueless.

Oh well, it will be interesting to see how this Teflon man fares in this latest mess.

I guess even if he gets dumped his toy Lt. M.E. will probably ask Dad if she can have the job and the 19th Ward will come to the rescue once again.

When I came on old timers who lived through the Summerdale thing told me it got very bad for north side police for a while. They would drive down the street and citizens would yell things like "Hey, you got any TV's for sale today?"

It isn't far from that now.

This isn't a case of the evil news media doing this to us; we are doing it to ourselves.

Also back there in the days before double action semi-autos, video cameras and CAPS the strongest incentive to a regular PO to behave in a certain way was peer pressure.

Officers didn't want to screw up on a call or fail to back each other up if for no other reason than you would then have to run the gaultlet of your co-workers at checkoff and again the next day at roll call and those old guys were beautifully brutal, blunt and merciless in their assessment of a non-performing officer.

That was in a fast district where they would give you jobs five at a time out of roll call. The dispatcher would simply say "get your pencils ready."

That peer pressure is missing today.

WE NEED TO POLICE OURSELVES!

If an officer is screwing up bad WE NEED TO GIVE HIM HELL!!! Tell the son of a bitch in no uncertain terms that his co-workers are watching him.

No more "we are right no matter what."

Use your judgement and put that peer pressure on each other to do things right.

Do any of you PO's out there really think Tony Abatte's co-workers didn't know what type of guy he was? And NO ONE had the balls to stand up and do anything about it before it came to this and now we all have to eat shit because of it?

He was no fucking good in 019 and a thief and NO ONE DID ANYTHING!

Not supervisors and not his co-workers.

If things are going to improve we must be part of the solution. We must put peer pressure on dog ass police officers, drunks, thieves and brutal PO's who we know regularly overdo it.

And the fucking chicken shit supervisors have to stop covering for these shit bag coppers or looking the other way in fear of no one liking them.

If Tony Abatte's behaviour was stomped on years ago we wouldn't have that video to watch now.

It isn't only the actions of the few; it is the failure to act of the many that is also part of the problem.

When are the exempts going to be held accountable for the actions of their subordinates, and their own actions? If Lt. J B and Sgt. J E are indicted, and as of this writing that is still a big "if" explain to me how their commanders skate away blameless. Where is their accountability? (Yes I use the word skate for a reason) Why was a Deputy Chief allowed to stay a Deputy Chief until manditory retirement, despite the fact that he allowed one of the players to return to SOS, and had at least one DUI arrest in the suburbs. And you wonder why morale is bad, and many of us beleive that our leadership has no credibility.

M.T. was only one of at least FOUR commanders who turned a blind eye to what was going on. Why are you singling him out when Wayne the rat took an active part as a LT and commander. Then there is the beloved Commander named after a cop bar, who was happy as pie because that team was filled with workers bringing in numbers. And last but not least our little Darling, Jimmy hot dogs (JD), who has since retired. Stop blaming one commander for the faults of four.
Oh, and by the way, what about E. Fred, who put the team together and made them his golden child.
If you are trying to tell me that the brass all the way up and BEYOND the recently demoted northside drunk didnt know what these guys were up to, you are full of crap.

I normally don't weigh in on a post where one officer is ripping another, but I have really had enough on this one. A fair number of people have been ripping on Lt M.E. at the Academy, saying she has what she has because of connections. I don't care what she has and why. All I know is she saved my very career when we worked together in 012, me as a P.O. and she as a Sgt. Remember Lt, then Capt, back to Lt E.O. who was in 010, 012, and I believe retired out of 013? M.E. saved my very career and family life in a situation where E.O. tried to railroad me for false reports and disobeying a direct order. While the whole thing was going on, she obtained incriminating evidence against E.O. for me out of E.O.'s office, saving my ass and putting her on a lengthy suspension. Everything I have at this point in my career I owe to her, because if she didn't stick up for me, I'd be working for a lawn service or a limo driver now. She proved to me that she has bigger balls than a lot of people I have met both before and after this incident. I am eternally grateful.
Yes, a number of people will know who I am with this, and I really don't care. I have never put anything on this board or the predecessor that I am embarrassed by. Sure, I would like to remain identified by my nome de plume, but enough people already know who I am.
To make a long story short, if you can get a spot, get it. If you can't figure out why and see if it is worth it to you. If not, you really didn't want the spot bad enough. I don't agree with the system, but it is there. Either make it work for you, or keep a level head and stay safe.

The difference is, if you get charged and have a gun restriction as part of your bond, no call back. If there is no gun restriciton as a condition of bond, you can work call back (indicted or not). Any other reasoning falls on Administrative/IAD decisions.

Sent to Roe Conn today:

TO: Mr. Roe Conn:
FROM: A Chicago Police Officer
SUBJECT: Pick Your Conspiracy: Blue Wall of Silence or Media Misinformation Frenzy?

It is with tongue in cheek that the format of this letter mimics the CPD To/From report (entertaining myself, I guess). Let me preface the body of this letter by stating that if you have clarified, corrected or reversed your position on the following subject, then disregard.

A few days ago when the 025 Dist. illegal handicapped parking/lot blocking issue was being discussed by yourself and Ron Magers you (rhetorically) asked some important questions. Such as why, at a time of such public/press scrutiny, would a group of officers/supervisors band together and do something guaranteed to garner further negative publicity? You also seemed aghast that real, honest cops would want to go an extra mile for such a jag (my term) as Abate. These were valid probing questions and your sense of incredulity was that little voice of the healthy skeptic telling you all was not as it appeared. I give you much credit for that. It was with frustration that I couldn’t get through on the phone to your show as Mr. Magers was able to further the unsubstantiated premise, stated as a proven assumption on which further discussion was based, that this was a concerted effort by police officers to deny the press access to the accused. I wouldn’t have been ecstatic but could have lived with merely slanting the story but Mr. Magers made the mistake of restating this assumption as a given numerous times. Never was there a caveat that “This smacks of…”, “Could this be…”, “Are we seeing a ….”, so a claim of editorializing is unacceptable.

I am sure by now you have heard and considered the following facts/possibilities:
Writing a (legitimate) ticket or blocking a police-only parking lot denied the press only IF they are doing some sort of new ‘drive-by’ filming from their vans.
The city recently began a program of towing on duty squad cars for parking in handicapped spaces.
The hypocrisy of the media doing exposes on abuse of handicapped parking. I believe one ran on WMAQ during the same newscast featuring the story of their outrage at not being allowed to trample the rights of the handicapped.
The 025 Watch Cmdr. should and was only trying to keep order in his parking lot. A lot where prisoners are brought in for court by county officers, covert vehicles park, undercover officers and confidential informants frequent (no bat cave-like secret tunnel). And bottom line is it IS a police parking only lot and access to the press is a favor given when the Watch Commander chooses to do so.
An exempt rank commander wouldn’t sacrifice his career like this even if he was friends with the accused.
It was the judge that ordered knucklehead to be taken out a different door.
As high profile cases are sometimes handled this way, any reporter worth his salt would have found out where their subject was exiting. It is unfortunate that their usual wiliness deserted all of them at the same time.

Your doubt and sense of disbelief that good Chicago Police Officers would want to protect this F*%*NUT was right. And I would like to think Mr. Magers merely got swept up in the excitement of the moment as his statements were off the cuff and not a written editorial piece. But huge damage was done. This whole situation was, or rather should have remained, just another episode in the ongoing pissing match between press and police (a whole ‘nuther subject). Sometimes we write them, sometimes we give them a play. Choosing to write them in this situation may have been bad timing but that bad timing hardly warrants the irresponsibility and damage of claiming a police conspiracy and using it as a platform for further discussion thus leading listeners to believe it is being reported as unbiased fact. If I have swayed you at all, at least about the method that was used when you discussed this subject on your show, I hope you will address it on your show. I don’t think the damage can be undone-this event has already gelled in the public’s mind forever as a police conspiracy but it would at least prove the character you usually show.

I am aware of your pro-police stance and all the work you have done on behalf of the Gold Star Families and thank you. It is because of those things and your consistent objectivity that I take the time to write. Any lesser a supporter would have me on the blogs calling for a boycott, not composing this long-winded missive. I know you are an acquaintance of Superintendent Cline and had him on your show yesterday. Due to my military experience, I am uncomfortable questioning his decision but as this does not involve a lawful order given on duty, I believe a certain amount of dissent is acceptable. I disagree with his handling of this situation, finding it prematurely reactionary and based on media-supplied suppositions, unproven at the time. It is possible that he had real information that the demoted Watch Commander was actively engaging in press censorship. If that comes to light, then I withdraw my objections. Let it be noted that I am well aware of the constraints he operates under due to political ramifications and believe he normally tries to do what is best for the department as a whole. I certainly wouldn‘t want to be in his shoes! Consider having someone from the rank and file on your show some time, not on the phone but live, in-person to get another perspective.
Sincerely,
“Hunter”
Chicago Police Officer

Go ahead, bash me and call me a liar, an asshole, threaten to kick my ass, the whole works, I personally overheard the composing of a hate letter against other bosses that the two of them were orchrestating.

Get lost, SOS is now and always has been a "my guy" unit. That doesnt mean that alot of the guys that are there dont deserve a good spot. But fuck you if your saying any of them got there without a phone call of some sort.

You dont get in ANY unit except TRU without some juice. Your record does'nt mean squat it's always if you got "juice" or "someone likes you". Your record only matters when it's the "someone likes you"

I know alot of Assholes (usually arrogant prick) that are great coppers and alot of good guys that have no buisness being the police. When it comes to whos gonna get "the spot" Nice guy wins everytime.

She also was/is a decent

Yes LT ME looks good & she is a great boss.
I couldn't say a bad thing about her. She's got more balls than 1/2 the male bosses around here!
She stands up for what is right.
She don't play.

"I don't care what she has and why. All I know is she saved my very career when we worked together in 012, me as a P.O. and she as a Sgt. Remember Lt, then Capt, back to Lt E.O. who was in 010, 012, and I believe retired out of 013? M.E. saved my very career and family life in a situation where E.O. tried to railroad me for false reports and disobeying a direct order"

HEY SNAKY, WHAT ABOUT THE LIES??

What you smoking a "Luberman"?

That's the only thing that could explain the melange of lies you're spewing forth.

M. E. and E. O. neither one of these two bitches should have been allowed on this job. M.E is a power mad little Hitler and E.O. is as crazy as a shithouse rat. I could give you examples but it would take up too much space.

Nash partner was V.V at Cahills house. And don't link Jake to Nash at all. He was just on the watch for awile.

"working 5 years in SOS equals 20 years in 016. englewood ranga!!!"


Good Point, Meaning it would take you 20 years in 016 to equal the money you stole in 5 years while in SOS.

Thanks for the Heads up Thief!!

The answer to the question of who was Ronnie Nash's partner when he was shot at Bill Cahill's house is Victor Vrdolyak, Eddie's older brother. I never worked for Victor Vdrolyak, but I have been told he was a good boss.

I for one am sick of the englewood ranga" crap on here. Stop padding yourself on the back because you have no time on the job and they dumped you in a shithole like 007. If you do have time and you remain there, well you are as soft as the shitbags you police!

Lt M.E. is a merit hack her score on the Lt's was in the 400's, I think her sister is also merit sgt. She did nothing as a PO nothing as a Sgt went on the medical for months after she receive her score on the Lt's test last time. She was also in the group of other merit memebers Cmdr GY, RS, JL and the list goes on. She is a lazy, do nothing home wrecker (lt M from 12)remember.

The late Deputy Supt. of Investigative Services, Victor Vrdolyak. His Chief of Detectives was Ray Clark. Both class acts.

A young Ronnie Nash was a captain in 011 when I was there. Suffice to say, he was outrageous and certifiably insane.

Northside,

The morale and leadership of this dept. could rise from the dumpster if we still had bosses of the same caliber as Vic Vrdolyak and Ray Clark.

With Lt M.E., I saved all of the paperwork. I still have it 10 years later. I can prove it. If you had a bad experience with her, that's between you and her. I can only speak for myself, but I'll stand up for her anytime, because she stood up for me when it counted.
As far as Lt E.O., yes, she should have never been on the job. A huge number of red flags over many years

Why must all the negativity continue? Stop the SOS bashing! There are many great officers who currently work there, and have worked there in the past. The actions of a few "bad apples" do not make all of the officers bad. You guys in fast districts know that if you called for help, and SOS had a mission in the District -they would be the first ones there to help. The bashing of good officers and supervisors who work/worked in SOS benefits nobody, and only helps fuel the current media circus. The media is comprised of police hating liberals who live by the mantra of "If it bleeds it leads (the news,) and our Dept. is currently bleeding, so lets apply a tourniquet. With time and adherence to the principles of good, honest police work the public trust will be restored, and the media will be unable to continue bashing us. Stay safe and God bless CPD/CFD.

Vrdolyak would never have been anything more than a patrolman if it wasn't for his outfit lawyer brother. Vyrdolyak let the whole 015th Dist. take time-due for a wedding leaving Gallagher alone to be murdered in the saloon at Grand and Central. Great policeman that Vic! Even greater administrator!
Oh, and ask the tact guys in 025 about the Clark legacy. Just more of the Irish oligarchy in action.
