Think There's a Message Here?

This was a bit brazen, don't you think?
  • A 37-year-old man was killed Saturday night when as many as six shooters opened fire on him as he stood on a West Side porch.
  • At about 9:30 p.m., the victim was standing with a 19-year-old man on a porch at 1615 S. St. Louis Ave. when five or six people walked up to them and began shooting
But hey, we've got officers "on the dots" and flooding the DOC areas. Too bad no one noticed six people with guns converging on a target.

Guess he wasn't near a "dot."

Wrong. Wrong. Wrong. There were not six shooters, but one shooter that shot into six people on the porch, striking two. One thru and thru in the knee, one head, chest and shoulder who died, was revived, then died again. Not terribly surprised the media got this wrong considering who the paper car was. The scene was tragic. No police on scene seemed to know what to do, with the exception of a few District people. TRU, on scene about 30 deep, simply stood there with there hands in their pockets. Really not an exaggeration, ask anyone who heard the debacle on the air. Without exception, the worst example of what NOT to do on a crime scene ever. Certainly not trying to be a 'TRU sucks' rag, but you gotta ask what the hell are they doing in these districts to help?

SCC, you missed a major news event. All the dots were stolen. An investigation by the Area Two gun team determined that the dots were sold to all the owners of 7-11s and Dunkin Donuts. WHen they tried to obtain search warrants to retrieve the Dots and return them they were denied. There was great fear that the free coffee and donut train would come to a screaching halt.

For the haters of the new police or the "hair gel" era as it shall be deemed. I guess we should worship the ground you walk on and the examples you set back in your hey day. The days when you stoled on traffic stops and from dead peoples houses. When you drank on the job and beat up handcuffed prisoners. You would get prostitutes to suck your dicks and coerce confessions. You couldn't spell "dog" or read or write and authored the worst paperwork known to policing.
The days of the police getting the benefit of the doubt from the community, media, and judges is gone because of you. So quit bitching about the new era of policing. New officers who want to work are basically trying to learn while getting resistance from everyone and having one hand tied behind their back. We are so apprehensive to get in any major incidents because we don't know how it will be depicted by our bosses and the media. Yet, in your era you ran around like cowboys and thugs and suffered no recourse.

Their SGT hada a dui stop , she calls for "one of her cars" who in turn has the balls to get on the AIR and call for another car to handle a DUI.

I get there and I can tell you effective 15 Apr 07 they will never call for a car to handle something they should have to begin with in our district ever again.

What did you want them to do? CPR?
The mutt is dead, move on. They don't have an intimate knowledge of every district as they move around a lot.

Shouldn't the tact/gang teams assigned to the district be the go-to guys for that?

What are they doing to help?
I don't work in that unit but it seems having a bunch more of them around in my district would benefit me if and when I need backup.

I don't see why people have problems with them.

Oh really? Well I am one of those guys you are talking about. You, Mr. Hair Gel lover, are a charlatan and a fraud and I will prove it.

1.)I never took a dime on a traffic stop. Most of my friends did not either.

2.)I never drank on the job.

3.) The only handcuffed prisoners I beat fucking deserved it.

4.) Never had a prostitute do me. Never had to. My generation invented free love. We could get more in one night than you could in your dreams.

5.) Something wrong with coercing confessions?

6.)I can spell better than most of you hair gelled morons with degrees, especially those with Masters. I have seen the pathetic and atrocious reports you have written. My bosses, you know the old time bosses, would have torn your reports up and made you rewrite them until they were satisfactory.

7.)Authored the worst paperwork known to policing? Really! Is that why the Detective Division laughs at your reports, the ones with hair gel on them? I can write you under the table any day. How many people have your pathetic reports put into the penitentary. IAD will tell you that the vast majority of you pukes get nailed because you write your way right into trouble. The detectives hate you. The only reason you get away with your piss poor report writing is that most of the time, the supervisors are too busy holding your little hands to read the garbage you write.

8.) You just showed your true colors and your ass bitch. You are sooooooooo afraid of how you will be depicted by the media and the bosses? We never worried about the media and the bosses. We just brought in the heads, lumped or unlumped. You see, us old guys were not afraid of anything or anyone. My, my, how times have changed.

9.) I am not the one bitching. In my day, you know the horse and buggy day, we did not come to a public forum and air our dirty laundry. We did not insult people behind their backs. We did not tell tales about goings on and sexual hijinks that can get people in trouble in the open. No, sonny boy, we either kept our mouths shut or did it face to face, man to man. Something your are too terrified and gutlerss to do, I guess. I guess this is the era of the modern coward police. Hey, pampers are on sale somewhere!

So go and apply some more hair gel sonny, write some more bad, useless reports, and keep being in fear of the media and the big bad bosses.

We, the real police, will just keep wiping up your messes and doing what has to be done. This is what adults do for children.


Yes you should worship the ground we walk on and you should kiss our asses too. Wait until the crime wave starts and violent crime goes up. We will not be there to hold your hand and teach you how to be the real police. You will cry, run, and hide, like the lowly pathetic cowards that you are.

BTW, I probably made more solid felony arrests in one month than you have made in your pathetic, pitiful career. I will bet even money that some of the arrests I made as a recruit, thirty years ago, are still in the joint. I will match my record against yours any day. My friends will too. Hands down, we win. Go back to kindergarten and take your hair gel with you. If you bend over, the teacher will show you what else you can use it for.

Hey, anonymous (8:46AM), even though I would be considered an "old timer" today (20+ years of service), I agree with much of what you posted here. Back in my day, we didn't run the amount of scrutiny that you do today. And believe it or not, we accomplished FAR MORE with a well placed boot or fist than we did by sending people to jail. Pain was a universal teacher...if the Police kicked your ass, you just didn't do what pissed that cop off again...ever. On the downside of those early years, drinking on the job was rampant. Some guys did partake in "backseat sex" with the working girls. Those of us who took no part in that stuff simply held our noses, and hoped for better days (and better partners!). And of course, there were those who made numerous traffic stops, and yet wrote no movers. We stayed away from those folks also, and prayed that when they got caught up, we wouldn't be working with them. Usually, they got taken down by IAD alone, as most of those kinds of officers preferred to work 10-99. Spelling and grammar weren't important back then...and if you read reports written by many of your "less than 5 year" comrades, it apparently is true today. I've seen more bad spelling and grammatical errors by kids who come on this job with MULTIPLE degrees now than ever before. So, either teaching isn't the same, or people in this country just aren't being well educated...take your pick. One thing's for certain, if you can't put it down on paper, it really doesn't matter what kind of paper you have, or where you got it from.
In closing, keep looking out for the kind of officer who will like to do the kind of Policing that you do; sooner or later, you'll bump into each other, and it will form a great partnership; it just takes time.

The problem is, when you went to school 20,30,40 years ago, there were no computers. If you wrote (or typed) a paper and didnt know how to spell a word, you would look it up; and most of the time it stayed with you. In modern times (this includes myself) young adults finishing college have programs with spell checker. Click on button and it does it for you. So I think thats why people finishing college now are bad spellers. Just my opinion.

I am not going out on this job because some stupid broad cares more about paying attention to her cell phone and her raggady ass appearance than a man with a gun. Thank God I have a lot of time on this job and not much suprises me, but I can see her at the round table saying uhm I didnt see anything cause I was busy texting my friend. There is a lot to say about experience and attention to duty. No not duty to this job but to yourself and your partner who has a family. You have to be a real special person to have less than 5 years on this job and say you are the real police. This is a unique job and unless you are some highly trained military person you know nothing. Take your uniform off and that badge and still deal with the same shitbags regardless of your office and see what happens,if you can handle the scene withour your superman outfit then you are the real police. How many of you new little jagoffs and bitches can do that. Maybe 3 out of 50. So u are new so what be real about what u can and can't do cause thats the only way u r going to survive along with your partner.

If you think it's so easy to make a great felony pinch every night, come over and try it; we hit a district with 30 cars, plus the district cars, tac teams, sat teams, gang intel and whoever else is around and guess what, the gangbangers and dope boys see all the cars and the shit shuts down, so you get what you can, sometimes you get lucky sometimes you don't. As far as being nice, it works both ways, don't have an attitude when we are at the desk, waiting for lockup, using a computer etc, we didn't ask to come to your district, we were requested, by your Commander. We know the lockup and desk get busy when we are there but the people in those positions bid for them. Practice what you preach and we will get along just fine. This is all nothing new, the same gripes were heard way before TRU was started, the beefs were directed at SOS, Gangs, and the task force for those old enough to remember...

Wrong, TRU heard the loud reports, found the shooting, called the ambulance and started protecting the scene and gave a flash, what more do you want? i'ma det. in the area, I thought they did fine.

4/16/2007 08:30:00 AM

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

Wrong, wrong, wrong again. TRU enough, the TRU wagon found the persons shot and called for ems, but NO FLASH, NO CRIME SCENE PROTECTION, NO CONTROL. I doubt seriously that you are an area Detective, as they were all equally disgusted on scene. Christ, do SOMETHING, even if it's wrong! Standing with your hands in your pockets slack-jawed around in the street helps no one.
------------------------------

What did you want them to do? CPR?
The mutt is dead, move on. They don't have an intimate knowledge of every district as they move around a lot....

4/16/2007 10:48:00 AM
-----------------------

No one expects CPR. How about getting a flash message so the other cars in the area can maybee get the offender? How about determining who witnesses are, the injuries or protecting the crime scene. It was tragic.

You don't need intimate knowledge of the district to help out with the basics, like the things highlighted above. If I'm an Inspector, a gang car working 'Operation Safe Summer' or a house mouse working 'Closed Market' and first car on scene of a job, am I exempt from identifying the offender or securing the crime scene? No, certainly not.

Again, this was severely lacking not just in TRU, but in the District people on scene as well. It just so happens that TRU has such a bottleneck of short-timers with no concept of what we are ALL supposed to do it sticks out more. Thats what people are bitching about.

There are plenty of very competent, capable and dependable police in TRU. It's a great concept. However, no one can deny there’s a butt-load of hacks that have been there since their successful completion of their probation, with virtually no more knowledge of their job than they had when they came out of the Academy. Shit, they just officially stated you need TWO YEARS to be in the unit. TWO DAMN YEARS. I don't think many cops can say they were self-sufficient enough to be in a city-wide unit in two years. I know I wasn't. Honestly, were you? Doubtful. You really don't start learning until AFTER your probation is up. They only have six months after that and 'boom', in a unit.

Four companies of TRU: 320-350 people. SOS has about another 300. Here's an idea. Identify the 10 most violent and crime-ridden Districts. Take the combined total of both units and add at least 60 people to each of these Districts. 60 cops per District. Then hold the D/C RESPONSIBLE for reducing crime; and dump him if he can't get the job done. We don't need to have all these citywide units running around on "missions". The proper way to put cops on the "dots" is to put them back in the Districts where they belong. We need to cease the mantra of fighting "guns, gangs and drugs" and go back to crime control. When you reduce all crime, even the little ones, the major crimes, like robbery and homicide will come down. Bratton proved it in NYC and he's proving that's the way it's done now in LA. Let's remember where all Chicago's crime and murders went to...the suburbs, ever since those housing projects came down. Just check the facts. They're there. And they are true.

Attention haters of the hair gel police! I know this is not as fashionable as the golden ages of the "Greasers", the mirrored sun glasses, and the "cop mustache". You guys are just old and jealous that your time has passed and your so fat that you haven't seen your wiener in years! You know they check us for hair gel at TRU during stand up inspection, maybe we just don't want to get gigged.

Ah yes, the infamous "people don't work north of cermak because they are scared" Right. You are the real police because you work north of cermak and get all those great one bagger arrests. You are the real police because you respond for the 75th time to the "baby daddy, momma drama" bullshit on the north end. You are the real police because you get into a foot chase everyday for the same pcs bullshit. You are the real police because the only crime that happens in 010 is on the north end. Get a fucking clue. Shit, the illegals on the southend, damn them to hell, but at least they pay taxes and work for a living. But go right ahead and clean up that north end, I'm sure they appreciate you being there.

Sorry but the 5-7 yrs is the average time on in TRU, I doubt 3rd watch in 010 can say that....

a little misogynistic are we ??
A little time due is in order or perhaps a little medial roll R&R.

Tell the WC you can't work with this PO in question,if she even really exists in the 1st place?

FYI I am not a dude!
Secondly she does exist, and yes I have let the WC know.
I still have to work with her but I will do nothing I can't handle myself not even traffic stops of more than 1 person. Fortunately I have friends who back us up on any jobs we have unfortuneately this incident didn't occur on a job thats what sucks, shit can happen at any time and when you least expect it.
I certainly hope that she is more closely supervised and no one ever gets hurt because of her lack of attention and self absorption.

Yeah that's zero tolerance missions, that means drinkers, pissers, turn style jumpers, graffiti artists, gang loiterers, reckless conduct, disorderly, etc, the very same type of arrest that get ridiculed by the "real police" on this board when made by tac, gangs, TRU, SOS when instructed to do so; you can't have it both ways, yes it works, that's been proven in NY and everywhere else employed, you just need coppers who will swallow their pride and get the job done.
Yes alot of the project dwellers went to the south, west burbs but most shifted into Area 2 and 1 districts, resulting in the explosion of shootings and Homicides out there last year.

I guarantee TRU will have the same problems as SOS has now. Eventually they will fuck up just like the rest of the units. But the powers that be will just rename it and it will start all over again. (TRU is going to be the next SOS)
I can't believe that only 2yrs are needed to get to a unit. They barely know the job. Though everyone keeps saying the average time in TRU is 5-7yrs, so I hope there aren't too many 2yr wonders.
Well anyway you TRU people enjoy those "fast" districts. Learning how to protect people who don't care about themselves much less you. Stay safe. Better u than me.

This post isn't for everyone mostly for those who would prefer to wine and complaine about things than actually try to improve them . So in refference to us know nothings with less than "5" years on this job who want to work and learn, maybe if more of the "senior" Coppers would get off their high horse and try to pass down some of their infinate wisdom like in the "OLD DAYS", instead of walking around all high and mighty we wouldnt have to make posts about it. It's (in most cases) not a lack of willingness to learn but no one willing to teach. So when a young copper asks you a question dont blow them off fill them in.

The reason TRU won't have the problems SOS had is because their supervisors are out there with them, and there is no bs going on....

Who couldn't get into TRU? I'm sure all who applied got in. Those that didn't, probably didn't have that incredibly hard requirement of 2yrs. Get over yourself "elite" police.

I know there are a lot of digruntled old timers out there but there are a lot of police officrs out there that have 15 plus years that know a lot and don't mind sharing thier experiences with the younger officers but these kids come on like they know everything and don't want to listen to anyone, everthing is not black and white and they cannot see the gray. I have 14 years on this job and when I work with a new kid they treat me like I'm a PPO because I don't look like I have any time on this job and they don't bother to ask, the only reason they realize it is when the everything goes to shit and they need help I know what to do. Then they ask how did you do that or how did you know how to handle that I thought you were new. All these little tots assume too much! I know a lot I've seen a lot but these kids think these are stories I make up or that they will never see or be in. That is so not true. This job is about survival and these kids need to realize they are not bullet proof, they need to listen learn and be worthy of wearing that star and uniform.

Ever try to ask a "old timer" a question? Good for bitching but not offering assistance to young officers. They are new like every other officer. In the past, new officers were offered help. Today, no one will offer help. If you are young and told to go F yourself enough times, then you also would not ask for help. What a waste.
