speaking of promotions, I talked with my neighbor recently (an elderly man, lifelong Chicagoan); he takes an interest in the CPD, and insists that the CPD brass (he doesn't know them as "exempt") are the absolute best that the police have; what he means, I guess, is that the commanders and above are the best that there are, better (more experienced, better educated, more competent, etc., but he doesn't talk in those terms) than each and everyone below them. I wondered, how does he know this? (he's almost deaf, and legally blind (his dog leads him around)...does he get his info from the precinct captain, or...?

I previously worked for Leo, when he was a Sgt. I could honestly say the he is a great guy (A LITTLE NUTS TOO!) but he won't hurt you. We once got into an arguement over some dog being shot and Leo calls me into the office to talk it over. He agreed to letting my partner and I handle the shooting our way and it was done. Water under the bridge never heard about it again and still treated us like gold, enough said!

Inmate says suspect admitted rape

March 15, 2007
The man charged with raping a woman before she plunged from a seventh-floor window of a public housing building has confessed to another jail inmate, according to court papers.
Marvin Powell, 24, is charged with aggravated criminal sexual assault in the May 2006 attack.

The victim, a 21-year-old sufferer of bipolar disorder from California, had just been released from the police lockup at 51st and Wentworth, authorities said.

Randy Brown, a former Cook County Jail inmate, testified before a grand jury that Powell admitted he raped the woman while armed with a knife, according to a defense motion.

Powell made the alleged statements to Brown last year, a source said.

The motion, filed by Powell's lawyer Sophia Atcherson, describes Brown as "a convicted felon with a history of drug abuse who has been evaluated for mental illness."

NEW YORK -- A gunman with a fake beard and carrying 100 rounds of ammunition fatally shot a pizzeria employee and two unarmed volunteer police officers in Greenwich Village before other officers shot him to death, the mayor said Thursday.

Authorities were investigating why David Gavin, 32, went into a pizzeria around 9 p.m. Wednesday, asked for a menu and then shot an employee 15 times in the back before fleeing, Mayor Michael Bloomberg said.


A neighborhood resident, Tina Lourenco, said she saw the gunman and recognized him as a former employee of the pizzeria.

Nicholas Todd Pekearo and Eugene Marshalik, two of the city's nearly 4,500 auxiliary police officers, responded to the shooting and approached Gavin, who crossed the street and fired at them. Auxiliary officers are civilian volunteers who wear uniforms, are unarmed and help patrol streets.

When Leo's wife Ellen was a Detective in an Area. She took a Sergeant's promotional exam and scored very well -- way at the top. You can't take it away from her, she is very booksmart, but street dumb. Anyway, she was quoted in a newspaper article about how well she did and how poorly her husband Leo and her partner did on the test. Her quote was something along the lines of "It's not my fault that they are not that smart."

If Leo is such a good guy and everyone is all about "ethics" in the dept. why hasn't anyone commented about his business partnership with Chuck Sanow at the gym the two own called "S-n-S fitness" on 115th and Kedzie. Sanow was a reputed dope dealer that was associated with Capise the dealer that went to jail after several cpd coppers kids (from Marist HS) killed themselves in the late 80's after being unable to pay debts back to the dealer.

Nice Phil, weren't you in OCD when all that happened?

March 15, 2007 - Mayor Daley announced Thursday that an additional 280 police squad cars will be equipped with video cameras to record the actions of police and suspects during traffic stops.

The $2.2 million program will raise the number of camera-equipped cars to 280, according to a release from the mayor's office. The initial 30 were in a pilot program to determine whether cameras were effective.
"Police officials have analyzed the video from the pilot program, discussed the program with officers and concluded that in-car cameras can protect both police officers and the public," Daley said in the release. "Police officers will know, when they're making a stop, that their actions are being recorded, and they'll be protected against unwarranted citizen complaints. And if any individual feels he has been mistreated by the police, it's no longer simply his word against the officer's. There will now be a photographic record."

Each car will have two cameras, one on those in the back seat, the other mounted near the windshield and facing forward. The cameras have the ability to tilt and pan, and are automatically activated when the car's emergency lights are turned on, according to the release. The cameras are equipped with microphones capable of recording sounds within 1,000 feet of the vehicle. The audio and video are recorded on a computer hard drive within the squad car, and the images can be transmitted to the district station in real time.

Daley said the department hopes to purchase more cameras as money becomes available as part of the Police Department's ongoing efforts to prevent misconduct by officers. "Police officers are expected to treat everyone they encounter with courtesy and respect," he said. "There is no room in Chicago for discrimination on the basis of race, ethnicity or sexual orientation -- by police, or by anyone else in this city."

Dear J.G.C.:

I can no longer be your side kick, your drinking pal and personal driver. Ever since my eyes saw the picture of the new Commander Schmitz that was posted on S.C.C., my heart told me where I should be. His picture is of such beauty, his strong chiseled looks, his sexy eyes and his thick perfectly groom hair has had me in a daze since I seen it. I thank you for the laughs and special moments we have had but now it is the time for me to become Schmitz's personal assistant and driver.

SCC,
With all the talk about Leo making Cmdr of 08 perhaps it is time to bring back who are the best bosses. I know you did this before but times change and so do bosses. The reason I suggest this is that I do not know Leo, some posts say he is good, some bad. All I know is over the years some of the better bosses I have worked for have been the "Bad" bosses. The reason is the bad ones you know up front who they are and for the most part treat everyone the same. I even learned to like some of them because once your worked for them they were OK to you. I don't want a boss to coddle me, just let me do my job. On the other hand I have worked for the supposed "Prince" bosses before. Most of the time I found them to be condescending pricks unless you were in their circle of friends or suck ups. Anyways just my observations over the years. Keep up the good work SCC.

Never knew that Cline was in any related to any of it. Am gonna be very pissed if its true that Leo is hooked up with anyone involved. Leo lives in the parish where BOTH of the kids who killed themselves lived. If that story has a bit of truth to it, it might be a good idea for him to think about moving somewhere else.

One of the kids (Mike) was pretty much a junkie by the time he killed himself. The other (Chris) was a nice kid, and quite a few people on the CPD (including quite a few of Leo's neighbors) remember the deceased kids from grade school and that part of high school which they survived.

LS is a great PO, and supports those engaged in police work, he'll be a great commander for all,except the dogs, of which there are numerous in 008. Those that complain about him are probably useless dogs. Graeber is another salt of the earth, good copper, good boss and is deserving of an exempt spot, which will come. Contino is the patron saint of those commenting on this blog topic. Those that are singing his praises are more than likely useless do nothings. He demands nothing of those assigned under his command, goes the other direction or is lost on heater cases. Not the case for LS and Graeber.

Lets set this straight, they never I repeat never stopped at White Castle for food, the idiot beat copper who took the paper put that in there because a Niles copper on scene stated that they had a call regarding an M/1 earlier at the castle. They did not even drive by Whitey's on their way home from the boat.

Here is what I can tell you if you see a shithead in a red or maroon 4 dr. car with a temp starting with the numbers 16 or 916 stop his ass. Thats all that the dicks have.

And to the asshole that says they were drunk who knows and who cares they still got stuck up. Then again i'm sure you have never even had a beer.

Lets keep our eyes out for these savages.

Leo is pals with wayne "WAYNEBO" thompson. Maybe you've seen him driving around in his hummer (penis extension). Wayne's son wayne jr. is a steady pot and cocaine dealer in mount greenwood, but no weight, dime bags and eight balls. He also worked for Leo at the gym until he got fired for stealing bottled water. The kid is destined for greatness.

what ever may be said of leo, i've yet to see a boss that is still the police as much as he is. if anything the guys in 008 have to worry about, its the fact that leo likes workers so u better start getting your pen's ready because the bidding is about to begin, that's bidding out of the district because you cant handle the work you f'n gods. had it good for too long, now its time to earn your pay. cant wait to bid into 008.

Leo works 12 to 16 hours a day... no joke. The guy lives for the job. Those that live in 8 should be greatful. They have a guy who will work his balls off to see that good is served and the savages are locked up or killed. Leo has an ego. What copper doesnt? When Vasquez was murdered in 011 thats all he had his teams working on. PERIOD. Everything centered on finding the shitheads that killed a policeman. Maybe Leo rubs people the wrong way, but I know if I were ever shot he'd be beating the bushes for the jagoff that did it. Clout or no clout, tan or no tan, the man cares. Is there anything more noble?

Wrong. I knew and grew up with the kids your talking about. Was shocked by the suicides. Which to this day some of us wonder if M.R. really did (weather he was offed) Both were a tragedy to say the least. However your connection is like "six degrees of seperation" to Kevin Bacon.

Tank is such a scumbag gangsta. Garbage lying all around the house on the floor, dishes not watched, trash can in kitchen over flowing on the floor, roaches scurring about, 3 pitbulls + all the uncleaned up dogshit, weapons everywhere, bud everywhere, 40 oz in hand with 7 reclyners in the house with 4 playstations but no dining room table, no coffee table, lamps with no shades, shots fired in the yard, 50+ calls for police service by terrified neighbors, your buddy gets murdered while with you in a club by another gangsta. Glad your going to jail, even though I wish it was for a lot longer.

John Cappas is actually out of jail now. Still has no job, and still has alot of money???

Chuck Sanow, Leo's business partner is the tool that drives around the neighborhood with the white Hummer w/ vanity plates
"IFBB PRO" and yes, he is a CFD fireman for about 6 yrs. I guess CFD follows a different hiring standard? They obviously don't test for anabolics do they. Fuck- he brags about being an "action hero" when he talks about himself.

All I can say about Schmitz is, he is a terrific cop. He's had his Area 4 teams doing nothing except follow up any leads pertaining to the Vazquez homicide. Say what you want about the guy, he is dedicated and a hard worker.
In my opinion, the only people who have anything to worry about in the Chicago Lawn district are the lazies. Clearly, Carroll was unable to motivate the masses over there, so it was time for a change.
Get over it, it's happened. Get with the new program, or start filling out par forms. Some will leave, and I'm quite sure others will transfer in to help the man in whatever way they can.

If Leo is such a good guy and everyone is all about "ethics" in the dept. why hasn't anyone commented about his business partnership with Chuck Sanow at the gym the two own called "S-n-S fitness" on 115th and Kedzie. Sanow was a reputed dope dealer that was associated with Capise the dealer that went to jail after several cpd coppers kids (from Marist HS) killed themselves in the late 80's after being unable to pay debts back to the dealer.

Nice Phil, weren't you in OCD when all that happened?

Just a thought to consider. Any older coppers from the southside or OCD care to comment?

3/15/2007 05:02:00 PM

are you serious? Are you sure it's the same person? Does the guy have a rap sheet? Holy shit would that be a huge F*#k up! That was a huge media story in 1987. Cappas is still in jail over that.

Leo will try and help out in any situation. The problem is, that he will take all of the credit even if he is not responsible for the outcome. He has done this on numerous occassions at meetings where he says, "Ya, my guys got him", when of course someone else arrested the perp.. ..It is really strange and narcisistic.

All of you whining about Leo are probably those dog asses that got called onto the carpet for just that, being dog asses. No, he's not perfect, but he is one of the hardest working guys I've ever worked for. And to the dumbass, he went to training to become a captain already and was not passed over. I'd rather have him as a boss, a guy with actual street experience over the political hacks who now populate the exempt ranks. Congrats Leo, the mutts will always have shit to say but no balls to do the job. As a side note, 016th District pieces of shit, get off you fat asses and do your job. Joe is riding around using the district as a quick stop and rob because they know you don't do shit. Excuse the language but I am getting tired of seeing the shitheads rolling around with their kicker boxer thumping looking for victims and not having one copper with the balls to do their job. You make me sick. All of you should be dumped to working districts so we can get actual police officers to protect our homes and families.

You can all quit speculating about Leo, because he's as solid as they come. You coppers who live in 008 should thank your lucky stars that you have an actual policeman running the show. The pics are funny, and I'm sure Leo has the balls to think so, too. I worked with in 12, in the D, and afterwards. He's a stand-up boss, he cares about his guys, and I'd work for him anytime.

To everyone who thinks 008 is a bunch of dog asses:

008 has its share,yes. But what we really have is mostly a bunch of hard working coppers who are tired of the bullshit and just trying to keep our heads up above water with all the b.s calls we get.
