can't wait to see the new lt. j.c. will bring to midway? the manpower is much smaller per watch at the airports compared to the 008th dist. so when jimmy rolls up his sleeves and charges the troops at a roll call he won't need donny to back him up. thing are looking up at 008 dist.

Be careful boys and girls..
Leo is all about Leo - he will screw you big time if he thinks it will make him look good downtown.
Oh, he has good numbers from his gun team in Area 4, but who gives a f... about that. You're on your own now -- he doesn't even begin to know how to help someone out of a jam, and the few times he did, he did not have enough sense to keep his mouth shut, he's up at the bar or in a group of coppers telling all "he did" to help someone. Better get ready to kiss his ring.

I see an early retirement for Capt. Contino, who is all class and not about to put up with Leo's bullshit.

Watch out Capt. Spratt's watch, that great guy you got for a Capt. can be a vindictive asshole when he feels slighted. Be prepared, he figures he should have got the spot and he'll take it out on you guys.

Capt. Graeber, good guy who will ride out the storm and is destined for greatness.

Tact Lt. Scott --- gone....

Cmdr. Carroll - irregardless of all the bullshit that went on about you in January's blogsite, you are a good boss and I wish you all the best at the airport.

i work in 008 and liked cmdr J.C. its a real shame he is leaving, contrary to what people said about him on this blog, he was a fantastic boss. i am dreading lt L.S. i think we should all dread him, from what i hear from people who have worked with him is that he is not a team player and will not stick up for his troops. he is highly connected through politics and is only looking out for himself. if you thought you had it bad in 008 with j.c....which we didnt, its gonna get a whole lot worse. ls is comparable to former cmdr harry h... hope you all realize in 008 that we are loosing a great boss... hang on boys and girls, were in for a rough road ahead of us.

I just read a great book about how the NYPD "bosses" ordered detectives to end an investigation into the murder of one of their own officers. It was ended because the murder took place inside of a Muslim Mosque, and they feared public backlash (political correctness B.S.) It's an eye opener. Link below.

From today's Tribune:


Frustrated with poor wages, transportation charges to and from jobs and no paid holidays, day laborers fought for years with temp agencies to improve working conditions.

Now the San Lucas Workers Center, a labor group in Humboldt Park, is trying out a new strategy: focusing on the companies that contract with the temporary work agencies.


In its first victory under the new approach, the day workers organization said Tuesday that it has reached an agreement with H2O Plus. After nearly a year of negotiations, the Chicago-based beauty supply firm has agreed to only contract with day labor agencies that have signed a fair code of conduct drafted by the agency.
-----------------------------------

Not like any of us buy beauty products, but they should be boycotted for their admission of using illigal immigrants, I mean "day laborers", and screwing American workers.

Nine years after Chicago Police fired dozens of bullets into a car full of 11 people in the pandemonium after the Bulls won a world championship, the last of the victims settled a lawsuit against the city for $1.75 million.
Anton Brown, who was sitting in the car's open trunk on June 14, 1998, was shot four times and still has a bullet next to his heart and another next to his spine, attorney David Cerda said. Tiffany Crawford, Michael Johnson and Joe Rice, who were on the hood, were all shot twice, he said. Damien Moore, who was sitting in the back seat, was grazed by a bullet.

They will split the settlement, which still needs City Council approval.

At least 25 of the shots were fired by police as the car was driving away from them, Cerda said.

Even though the driver was never shot and some of the worst injuries were suffered by people like Brown in the trunk, city attorney James Sotos insisted police fired at the car as it headed toward them.

Schmitz is supposed to be a merit guy. I've heard good and bad about him so the jury is out until he shows us what he's made of.

Jimmy Carroll's ouster was a long time in the making. Maybe 008 will regain some of the morale that's been in the toilet for the past few years.

You mean like his wife pulls?

When he was a P.O., Leo was an EXCELLENT copper, years ago but, the way I hear it, when he was meritoriously promoted, he believes he actually deserves the promotions and his head got bigger than both of his arms put together. As others have said, it's always about Leo, all the time.

I have worked for Leo for the past 2 years and he is probably on eo the most approachable bosses that I have ever worked for in Law Enforcement. He does expect his troops to be loyal and work hard, but that is only because he works hard and is loyal as well. 008, dont believe the negative stuff you may hear. It is probably from lazy cops who didnt like the fact that Leo wanted results. He will be missed by those who know what the job needs in a boss.

My son was the victim of a strong armed robbery/battery in the 008 District where the offender was arrested by a beat officer. I went to the 008 District station to request a court date and was making copies of the case/arrest reports in the upstairs office with assistance from a couple of review officers when a very overweight individual approached me and in a tough guy voice stated "wheres your id card, put it on" and then walked away. The review officer told me that this guy was the Commander and that he was aware of my situation. This guy didnt ask how my son was or if he could assist me, all he did was give me that -Im the boss- bullshit. I cant tell you how upset i was about this. I know a ton of bosses who would have extended themselves to help another officer, but not this idiot. On top of all of this, the Commander was in civilian dress and he was not wearing his ID card. I just wanted to let the blog know about this guy. I would never want to work for the old 008 District Commander and let my experience guide others who will be under his Command. Also, I will always be grateful to the 008 District beat, desk, review officers who helped me during this incident.

Hey 008: are you complete morons, patting yourselves on the back thinking that you got Cmdr. Carroll "dumped." All that whining you guys did last month because he stood up to the 3rd watch college grad babies has nothing to do with this change.
Let's face it, he is the most experienced person to run the airport - having ran Midway in the past. I was out there when that plane ended up on Central Ave. -- that only reason why that incident went as smoothly as it did was because Carroll was put in charge. The only criticism to come out of that incident was HItney's stupid pictures. Can you think of any other major incident that has happened in Chicago in the last few years that hasn't been the subject of how the Exempts fucked up the incident and then criticized and this website. I don't recall any criticism directed at Carroll for his ability to run the airplane crash

What's he criticized for, standing up to a bunch of whining crybabies at roll call and enforcing the policies of the Chicago Police Dept. that's his job - you idiots.

Carroll got a promotion yesterday.
Even though it's considered a "lateral" move -- the worse job for any boss on this police dept is to be a District Coomander and have to deal with all the district bullshit and Charlie W & Dana S.

No, I'm not big buddies with Carroll -- but I've seen a lot of idiot bosses in my 30yrs on this job while working in 4 districts, SOS Gang South and 2 years @ 11th & State.

(For you 90% of the new college grad police dept. -- 11th & State was where the old police headquarters was located)

Good luck with Leo. I worked with him as a patrolman in 012 back in the early 90's. Don't be impressed with all those ribbons on his chest, most were earned by other officers while he and his useless tact partner kissed in on the awards.

Good for you Comm. Jim Carroll. You deserve a spot like the airport. You have always backed the working police 100%. Coppers who work for you and those of us who have worked for you at one time wish you well. And any negative comments you may read about on this blog are just coming from the same 3 or 4 morans who wouldn't know what an arrest was if one jumped in the backseat of their squad cars. They couldn't bust a grape if they had too. As a matter of fact, once again (like I've stated before) the negative writter is nothing but a pussy hiding behind their computer. We know who you are. You should of taken an inside office job somewhere because you are ball less on the street.

Let's look at the L.S. situation. Here's a guy who was a very good patrolman. He excelled in that position, and should have remained there.
There is a reason that he has been a merit promotee all the way--he's not CAPABLE of anything else on his own. This guy still THINKS he's a patrolman..he acts like a spoiled tact guy..jumping on paper, hogging the air and beating his chest. Yes, his teams have done good things, but they have accomplished those things DESPITE him, not BECAUSE of him.

Cline's departure is nearer that we all think. He's tying up loose ends, taking care of all his guys and will be among the retired soon. Unfortunately, he's leaving us to deal with his legacy.

L.S. is conceited and selfish. He will sell you out in a heartbeat if it will make him look good downtown.There was barely enough space in a single room for Leo and his ego. Now that he's a Commander, there better be TWO rooms available.

Also, let's look as his supervisory experience...he's never supervised more than a dozen or so people at one time. How in the hell do you think he's going to be able to handle a district? I'll tell you how...look for wifey to be doing the bulk of the work behind the scenes ala Hilary Clinton. When little "El" gets her own office in the West Wing of 008, watch out people.

Word is just out, the 008th District is planning a Nude Wrestling Match with Cmdr. Leo and Capt. Spratt as the main event.
Winner of this match will be awarded with the title of the "Biggest Self Righteous Asshole" in the 008th District.

My $$$ is on Leo, at least he works out at a gym with barbells

JIM just works out at the bars on Western while sitting at the barrail.

Hey Capt. Jim -- how are you going to adjust to working a full tour, and not getting up to the Danny Cullinan's bar by 7:30 / 8:00 on nights when you're on the clock until 10:00PM!!!!!!

Better buy a uniform that fits. No more blue jeans for you.

008 District Tact Sergeants -- don't worry about getting dumped for the midnight sergeant who worked for Leo on the Area 4 GUN TEAM -- Sgt. P. & his team are looking at 30 - pending separation.

Leo has done a good job distancing himself from Sgt. P. and the rest of his team.

So keep that in mind, when Leo is demanding warrants and more warrants out of your teams, if one goes bad, you and your team are on your own,, just ask Sgt.P about what a good guy Leo is and how he'll back you up all the way..

008:

Today is 14 March 2007, let's give Leo a 90 day trial period and we'll get back together on this website on 14 June 2007.

At that time, let's compare Leo S. to Carroll and see who you would rather have...

You guys got 4 Aces (or should I say assholes) in 008 now, between
Leo, Lt. C.E - 3rd Watch., Lt. J.K (and his cabin boy Sgt) -- 1st
Watch, and that nutty bitch Lt. whatever her name is this month on the 2nd Watch....

Leo Schmittz stand up guy --- bull shit. His drunken A4 gun team beat up a whole bar in 012 last Christmas and nearly faced criminal charges. They're all looking to be fired now. It's all on film. Thing is, his gun team was on the clock at the time, but nothing was said to Leo - must be nice to have all that Jewish princess clout for a wife to cover your sorry ass.

It's not on him it's on the Sgt. who was with his guys, can't blame the Lt. on that one......

had to laugh after reading about leo telling the story about getting shot on duty. the boot he was wearing that day got shot not leo. as i recall it was a housing tact team who grabbed the offenders and recovered the gun on that caper. were they merit promoted ? i guess not i think they have all left this job in disgust after seeing the things that go on. seat belt missions, eevent numbers buying guns from old ladies at fr. faker's church. oh yeah this job is legit.

Leo Schmitz is a super guy, just ask him. His wife is Ellen Weis, field Lt in 009. It's hard to imagine two more self centered, egotistical people on the job. They both think their sh%t don't stink. Be very careful when dealing with Leo. He is not your friend.

She is also disliked off duty too (gee-what a suprise) by the other neighborhood moms. She forces herself and her kid on them and their kids for play dates, they can't stand her. Makes me laugh every time.

Just remembered a funny one about Weiss. Years ago a friend called me and said turn on the tv, ya gotta see this: Weiss was on the Jenny Jones show (female Jerry Springer of her time) in a real lame episode where they wanted to hook up some Irish guys. And I mean Irish. She was in her leather mini trying to act all cute and look at me. The funniest part was when the best of the bunch (and that's being kind) picked another lady to take on a date. You should have seen her pointy jaw bone and snozzer drop with her mouth open...she was THAT sure she would get to be his date (arrogance even back then). Even funnier was the guy who picked her was about as tall as her and looked like a leprechaun! heeheehee, sure wish I had it on tape.

You know I'm tired of the "old commander in 008 was great" bullshit. I do my job and then some. I also hate the dog asses. But He was NOT a person that would back just anyone up. You had to be "one of his guys". I know that personally. I had went to him with a serious family issue and he treated me like shit. Nothing like helping a good working fellow officer huh? If the new comndr is stuck on himself, and idiot or whatever it's fine with me. As long as he lets me do my job, back me up when I need it and helps any P.O. who comes to him with a problem.

As far as that comment about Cpt. Greaber....he is the best white shirt out there and he should be the cmndr! He treats everyone like your the best P.O. out there! Example: He came into roll call one day and didn't bitch (as many bosses do) about having to answer why our numbers on curfews were low. Instead he "asked us to do him a favor" and if we "could" get him some curfews he "would greatly appreciate it". Can you believe it! A man in that position ASKED us to do HIM a favor???? End of story: Our mission was to do what he asked and got a shit load of curfews for him. NOW THAT IS NOT ONLY A GREAT BOSS BUT A GREAT HUMAN BEING. Hey cpt. we don't care what cmndr comes in ....we hope you are here to stay!!!!

I don't know anything about Leo except what I have read so far, and don't take everything on here seriously. Hopefully he isn't that bad. J.C. was always good to me. But why pick on Spratt? He is a GREAT boss! Give me a break. I am guessing you have less than 5 years on and know everything, right? Trust me, there are MANY worse bosses than Spratt. I admit I am on tact, not the watch, but from what I have seen if you are a good, hardworking copper (not a kiss-ass...but a loyal, dependable and respectful officer)he treats you like gold.

I was there when Leo S.was so called shot in the 12th district. All bullshit. Heard him at the award ceremony a year later, all bullshit. He is one hell of a self promoter. Very similar to John Kerry. He was an aggressive p.o., but also looked out for number one.

What did you expect him to do in that situation? it was a bar beef that got bad, captured on tape, the sgt. lied about being there and got busted, he can't do anything about that. that's why they have little yellow slips, fill them out!

I can honestly say I've never met commander J.C. of 008 or even seen the guy while at work, but from the stuff I've heard he used to be a stand-up guy and that he has changed...for the worse. The man could care less about the west-end of 8. As far as Capt Spr...........there is nothing wrong with the guy. The asshole posting negative stuff about him is the fuckin rat-fuck who called IAD about him wearing plain clothes at work. WHO CARES! I wouldnt care if the guy wore a fucking mini-skirt as long as he treated everyone good (like he's been doin). He's a Capt for christs sake! I think the man has earned it! I think its some asshole trying to stir some shit up as with the comments about Lt. E. So what if the guy tells stories at roll call!!!!!!!! Would u rather have him belittle you like some other districts? I'll put it to u this way, if you work and I mean work you will have no problems working 3rd watch. They speak to u like adults, roll call is laid back, and the bosses are just fine. Whoever is the jag posting the negative shit (except Comm J.C. stuff) has noooo idea what it is like to work in a shit district. If you don't like the guys then leave because you are the fuckin reason why the west end is goin to shit u lazy ass! and no I'm not a kiss ass and I dont know these guys personally. I'm just a lowly P.O. workin hard and trying to make it by. Now.......as for Beats 811, 812, 814 they work. Period! Good people in 008, has it's bad and good just like every other districts. Let's not judge our new commander till the guy actually works there ok. Seems like its the same fucking whiners always posting untrue non-sense. You want some truth..........West end of 008 is not goin down due to lack of police work, its due to lack of police (big ass district) and doggs! Lt R.S. is the asshole everyone has talked about...........and yes morale is down but more so city wide. City wants production but will not back officers up, neither will the union and the news media is a joke. Enough said. Be safe everyone and please keep your head up.

Wrong...not a M-2 OR Irish. And didn't even know JC when he put me on tact. What's wrong, want to be on tact and can't? You must be pretty pathetic then, because it isn't too hard now days. No more perks, and they had to ask about 10 people before filling a spot a few months ago.

Boy Mr. I admit I'm on tact.... I struck a nerve. I doubt you are being truthfull about you being a m/2...but whatever! And as far as me wanting to be on tact....LOL! the 008 tact team is a joke really it is...and if you really work there you know it but won't admit it to anyone but a fellow tact officer. You really have no idea ...but I know. Why would anyone want tact in 008? You know it (if you are really on tact) it sucks. You probably wake up in the middle of the night and automatically fill out a contact card on your significant other out of habit. That's too bad, because there are a lot of good P.O's on tact and gang (epecially the token hispanics)that aren't really able to use thier police knowledge because of bullshit "missions". So, I should thank you, Mr. I admit I'm on tact, for taking a spot on tact that I sure the hell wouldn't want even if you paid me extra. Your like a sacraficial lamb!I keep it real on the beat doing what police work "I" want to do and not what "they" tell me to do. How many times do you get to do that?
Oh and by the way, I know the game....if J.C didn't want you there...you wouldn't be there. Now there's a new cmndr so maybe you'll go back to a beat....oh wait a minute I forgot...you actually WANT to be on tact....nevermind.

No, didn't really strike a nerve... just thought I would tell you that I am not a M-2 or Irish. We aren't all, ya know. And no, no phone call. Yes, tact sucks. We no longer are really allowed to be the police and most of us hate that. I would go back in a heart beat to the watch if I got dumped. Many of us really don't care! But I will stay for the VERY FEW perks still there as long as I can. And yes, my hand hurts from contact cards. And those gang dispersals, stupid Wolf Pack missions, DOC missions, and every other ridiculous mission we are given all suck. Never said I was a super copper...just wanted to correct you in that we are not all white irish males. And my point was the reason they asked 10 people to be on tact to fill a spot is because nobody wants it anymore. Don't blame them, either!
