"Justice de CLINE d" T-shirts

Surfacing across the North/West sides. And making the papers, too.
  • Some Grand-Central District officers are rallying in support of a police captain demoted after the media was blocked, apparently on his orders, from covering a court hearing for Chicago Police Officer Anthony Abbate on March 27.

    Last week, district officers paid $10 each for T-shirts protesting Capt. Marc Buslik's demotion. The shirts read "Save Buslik!" and "Justice De CLINE d," referring to Supt. Phil Cline, who demoted Buslik.

Ask around - they're easily found. And a soon to be collector's item.

And note the not-so-subtle bias in the story. Buslik wasn't blocking the media from covering the story - Buslik was preventing the media from entering a parking lot that isn't supposed to be accessible to the media anyway, and his officers enforced parking regulations that the media had a field day castigating the Department for disobeying. It sure is nice for the media to be able to establish the double standard for themselves and cost a Captain his job.

I doubt that the media will cost the Captain his job

First, he hsant been demoted yet.

Secondly you just cant demote the Captain, because of knee jerk reaction. He is entitled to a hearing.
Thirdly, fuck the media. They dont play fair

An open letter and questions to Carol Marin, John Kass, Neil Steinberg, Mark Brown, Pam Zekman, et cetera. I know many media members read this blog daily.

Did you learn about ethics and integrity at journalism school?

Did you learn to tell the entire story at journalism school? Or did they teach you to tell half truths and innuendo to slant a story to fit whatever agenda you want to?

When will you tell the other side of the Abbate court appearance?

When will you tell the public that the Judge ordered that Abbate be taken out the back door?

When will you say that order was given because news crews and equipment blocked the entrance to the court so badly that business was hampered.

When will you admit that TV Trucks were parked in the handicapped spaces and the fire lanes?

We won't get an answer to the previous questions because the media will never admit when they are wrong and in some ways were culpable.

Bad cops stay on news cycles for days and weeks, the good cop stories last maybe one or two news cycles.

Some of your brethern in the media have less than savory reputations and you never reported on them.

Hosea Sanders was a crackhead who got extorted and that only made a small blurb.

Neil Steinberg is an alcoholic wife beater and he is back to work after the perfuctory rehab as if nothing happened.

Carol Marin's kids were juvenile offenders who were the bane of Palatine police and the Administration of Palatine HS.

Perhaps the real reason that Captain (now Lieutenant?) Buslik was demoted was for disparaging and disgracing the Christian Holy day by the untimely removal the Christmas tree from the 025 lobby. Hhmmmm.....

And don't shed too many tears for him ... going to 014 midnights is not exactly a demotion.

But he is truly missed in the Pride of the City...

Captain Buslik, and his watch did nothing wrong. they were protecting their house. We all would have done the same thing.

We dont condone any brutality as seen in the video but we will not allow someone to walk into our house and think just because they are media whores they can take over our house.

God bless Captain Bling Bling, and kudos to him for having some balls.

F the media. Way to much power. The media simply embellishes many stories and get much of their information from people on the street - NOT A RELIABLE SOURCE! Just ask Frank Main and Fran Spielman. I think they just cut/paste their stories for the SunTimes from one story to the next. Many times, I've read their story the next day in the paper and it was factually incorrect and totally fabricated. I know because I was at the scene. It happens more often than not....Maybe it's the fault of the dept for not giving the reporter more info, but IT'S A CRIMINAL INVESTIGATION bozos(I mean Frank and Fran) and all they can give you is a summary. Also, I always love how they(f&f) make their article seam longer by adding OLD and TIRED information that they have in every article...just look at the SunTimes article 4/13/07..Frank, YOUR SO COOL - YOUR A SUPERSTAR REPORTER. I always feel I'm reading a high school newspaper article..guy.

I'm reposting the letter I emailed to Roe Conn BEFORE Cline fell victim of the same treatment he visited upon the good Captain. I've received no response other than the auto email confirming the letter was delivered.

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

Thankfully, the court sgt is willing to go on record that the judge (br 50) requested cpd to allow abbate out the back, as he felt the media was not able to be controlled.
The spinless judge now refuses to say he made the request to the capt.
All reports were that "the police were protecting one of their own" by letting him slip out the back.
Protecting him from what? A camera? How many angles of this guy do they have, and what's one more going to matter to anybody? As if any police officers, including abbate, really give a shit about another picture of him.

The media purposly reported the incident as an attack on the police because they were not able to get their "shot".
Numerous reporters were told by police that the judge wanted abbate to go out doors other then the front, and requested cpd to assist the court officers.
None the less, the media reports bullshit, knowing it was bullshit, because it makes a better story.
And then the parking ticket bullshit, "they sought out media vehicles to ticket, to send a message". Hay assholes, that was the traffic cop, tickets is what he does! Next time, don't park in a handicapped space, jackass.

Then our fearless leader, Cline, demotes the Capt., who's only "crime" was accomidating a judge's request, to appease the media.

Then Charles Williams comes to rollcall to tell us that the media are our friends.
Fuck You!!!

Buslik is our friend. The media was full of shit. How Cline handeled this was disgusting.
It was beyond disgusting. He didn't even want to hear the facts, or Buzzard's explaination.

To demote a person based entirely on a story by the media, with no other information necessary? Mr. Cline, you can't retire soon enough.

It is my understanding that Tom Needham, Abbatte's attorney, approached the judge and requested that Abbatte be snuck out of court. The judge agreed and told the court sergeant to perform the task,. The court sergeant called Patrol Division Headquarters and spoke to his boss and received permission. Abbatte was long gone when the news media heard someone yell in his in the back lot. The Captain was not informed of the plot by anyone.

The news media was outside in the handicapped spots. The traffic officer, who has written citations there previously, approached the media and requested that they move and some agreed but one refused in a snotty manner. He wrote the citations at that time without the knowledge of the Captain.

When the media thought that Abbatte was in the back lot they tried to charge through the restricted area of the District in mob fashion. The Captain prevented that. I wonder who will play Gary Grant's character in the movie?

At that time the Captain ordered the rear lot blocked with squads because the prisoner vans were being loaded.

As for the private lot next door the Captain had received a call from the manager of the facility reminding him that they did not want any private vehicles belonging to any one on their property as they have requested citations and tows in the past. He had that lot blocked.

The problem started with Tom Needham who is close to Daley and has been employed as Cline's Chief of Staff.

The Captain is just a fall guy for Cline's inability to conduct a complete and thorough investigation.

The one item that is missing is the role that Monique Bond played in this farce. I am willing to bet that she went hysterical in trying to pander to the media when they rightfully received parking tickets for parking in handicapped designated spots.

"Phat Phil" also was pandering to the media because he was trying to keep "Da Mayor" from exploding, which he did when he returned to town.

The Captain should consult with attorneys and sue Cline, Bond, et al.

Interesting that the former counsel to the Superintendent, Tom Needham, is Abate's attorney. All he had to do was p/u the phone and call Cline direct and let him know about the need to remove Abate quietly and this whole thing could have been avoided. Always thought that Needham was a scumbucket and I think this proves it. His representing Abate is suspect to begin with and his letting Buslik take the fall is unforgiveable.

Well it has happened, Chicago won the bid for the United States, and now all we can hope is the International Olympic Committee chooses another venue.

But what can we expect if Chicago is picked by the I.O.C.? Right now all that comes to mind is mandatory 12 hour days, Furlos not allowed during that time. No elective time due or pdays. Heck who ever the mayor is then will have to modify our contract so it can be done.

One of the papers reporting on the search for the new Superintendent quoted someone as stating that Daley is not lokig for a crime buster, he is looking for a cop buster.

Children, you are about to be severely molested. This department is going to change real quick and you are going to be the victims. You are going to be praising Cline and Hillard from the rafters after the new regime gets in. Nothing will be tolerated and you will be crying, whining, and complaining more than ever.

You can express your gratitude for the changes to the people in SOS and that human piece of garbage Abbate.

For everyones information:

Regarding: Day 2 of the "War in 025".

General Williams from HQ addressed his "undesirables" and a cast of thousands at the 025th, As he stood no taller than the gun unloader thingy in the roll call room, he disgustingly looked out and addressed the weary. This stalwart mountain of brass and valor was looking angered and disgusted because his friends the "media"were "dissed" by the ones he was supposedly in charge of.

Our fearless "DOC" leader was miffed and had scolded the likes of on called Buslik. This fine example of a general order dressed was an inspectors dream, professionally like the a crime lab technician in his baseball cap as he chirped out at the dazed and confused in his "High pitched" yet masculine voice not like some nappy headed ho' but like the voice of of IAD or HQ would come down on you as you Fuck yourself up and out of a job young soldier.

Basically our baggy pants nit wit with FOP looking solemnly on made statments of "No support" and lastly "No encouragement" for the low morale of the 025th and maybe the rest of the troubled second city blue.

Our "Fearful of the Media" Leader professionally addressed his men and women like recruits at the Academy on this historic day. "I love the smell of asbestos in the morning".

Ah yes the Academy, you know that place where its easy to get the proper respect from some unknowing and fearful young buck! Since those who work there need their egos boosted as they act like they were the real police and knew it all. The place where they will give a "brassed up" battle torn Old War Horse his due for the all the smoke and mirrors he or she has conjured up in their time as CPD.

The "go to the well" attitude our leaders have bestowed upon us is why our morale is low, you lackeys, as is our Powers lack of support in lieu of their demands from their peons.

Basically, if they get rid of the so called "problem officers" before they get to the bad districts like the 025th someone at the Academy is doing their job to fight integrity or at least insanity for some.

Folks as the Days of War heat up and our summer evolves with busier times at work, let us all remember those leaders that have tried to make a difference by implementing such B.S as DOC missions, Pod missions, Seat Belt Missions, Curfew Missions and whatever other mission these "Magicians" come up with to fool someone else that they are making a difference.

In closing: I have and idea, I want to forward down to HQ. While we move TRU around like some military "after the fact" operation and SOS gets its wings clipped while it is punished and making little or no arrests, and Tac/Gang are Wolfpacked around like lost dogs in other districts all trying to fight the "lost" cause of crime rates with the rest of the patrol personnel, Ladies and Gentlemen........ I have a plan!

My plan is to create.... a new MISSION! A mission so brilliant and diabolical Dr. Evil will have to be put in charge of it.

I will call it the "Shit Can" mission. It works like this first we report all homicides as if they are Death Investigations, especially those of illegal immigrants or people that have no political affiliates so it won't come back to bite us in the ass! Basically we "Shit Can" everything, We just lose it, HAVE NO RECORD of anything its ingenious.

"Hubie" what do you think you got room for me down at the HQ you sexy beast!

See you in the Sauna!

Then our fearless leader, Cline, demotes the Capt., who's only "crime" was accomidating a judge's request, to appease the media.

Then Charles Williams comes to rollcall to tell us that the media are our friends.
Fuck You!!!

Buslik is our friend. The media was full of shit. How Cline handeled this was disgusting.
It was beyond disgusting. He didn't even want to hear the facts, or Buzzard's explaination.

---------------------------

Right on.

You need your own newspaper.

"the media is our friend" What a bunch of shit. Why is it that in the G.O we are not allowed to talk to the media?"

People in the media are slime. They are salesmen pretending to be reporters. Hustling for money in the form of a lies, stories, or sterotypes in print. They're bs opinions and bought degrees distort the truth and divide the nation. No wonder circulation is down and ratings fall every year because it is all a bunch of garbage. Watch the current BBC or old newscast from the 1945 to 1966. That's news.

You again.

While I generally agree with the content of your posts, will you please check the dictionary for the difference between "moral" and "MORALE". In the context of your statements, please add the final "E": (m-o-r-a-l-E)

4/14/2007 01:23:00 PM

Hmmm, shouldn't there be a ? at the end of your statement,"you again" because I think you're asking the author if it is he who wrote an earlier post or is this a rhetorical question? Still, this is a mute point because your statement can't be construed as a sentence because there is no verb. The word "again" is classified as an adverb.

A simple sentence or independent clause must have a verb. A verb shows action or state of being. The subject tells who or what about the verb.

Because you said "please", I promise I'll check my dictionary, really,I swear to the patron saint of spelling, I swear on my municipal code book, I will check my dictionary prior to submitting any posts and/or entries to the various posts. Oh merciful God of spell check, I humbly beseech thee to strike me down should I ever mispell a word again.

I tell ya, morale is so low, I find myself drinking alcohol every night when I come home from being underpaid, overworked, overstressed, denied lunch and denied time off because of backlogs and no-power. 3 different officers on my watch have been hurt mostly due to no backup and poor response time to help them out when in trouble because we are soooooo short of police officers on the street. Is the extreme manpower shortage EVER going to hit the news, the newspaper. Is f.o.p. EVER going to demand a response. I told the coppers that got hurt and anybody with their eyes and ears open. If you get hurt because you had no help. DOCUMENT IT, FILE A SAFETY GREIVANCE, DO SOMETHING TO BRING ATTENTION TO THIS RIDICULOUS PROBLEM WE HAVE HERE IN THIS FUCKED UP DEPT.

God forbid a copper dies, because their are no coppers on the street to help him in a 10-1 situation.

I heard from a friend that works in 004 that their has been a back log every day for the past week. Sometime 20+ jobs waiting in limbo until a car is free. Is that fair? NO.. Is that safe? NO... Should something be done? YES!!!!

Boys and girls, who cares? The Captain got dumped. So what. This case is so political that anyone who even gives a perception of helping the tool Abbate will be punished.

As to the media, hey, we park where ever we want, when ever we want and then cry when we get caught. You can't have it both ways. And that I am the police shit does not cut it. you guys are as big of hypocrites as the politicians you work for. Ohhhhhhh, you forgot that you are employed by politicians did you?

There is only one industry in the city of Chicago and that industry is politics. Politics is all that counts. So to all of you phoney professionals, moralists, and cry babies, get a life. Reality is a bitch. Life is not fair. If you really wanted to band together, we would have had a real union and real union leaders along time ago. Instead you complain about non issues and we get stumble bums like Greg Bella, Sid Davis, John Dineen and all the rest. You guys are pathetic.

Like 5:27, I observed a news truck parked on a fire hydrant on Plymouth Court. Called it in as any good citizen would do. When I came back to my car a half hour later, surprise (not), no ticket. You or I would have been ticketed and TOWED. I'd like to know, since when did having a media placard give the right to park on a hydrant, handicap spot etc... especially when they were probably just inside the Federal building, not covering a breaking story on the street. Hey 001st District strap on some balls and do your job when citizens call in, or are you guys under orders from some boss not to ticket media vehicles? Inquiring minds want to know. One more thing, lets start taking photos of all these vehicles when parked illegally, we all have camera phones, and lets post them on the net and mail them to city hall.
