2 Years Young - and a Thank You

Happy Birthday to us! Can you believe it?
  • 730 days of blogging
  • 2321 posts
  • almost 1.2 million visitors on 6 continents
  • well over 4.1 million page views
  • tens of thousands of comments
  • countless hours of fun for us and our readers
Thank you gentlemen, ladies and others. Without your visits, we wouldn't even think of putting the effort we do into this site, little though it may be.

Also, we owe a belated thanks to a fellow blogger for a few thousand visits from around the globe over the past two days. Hop over to "The Other Side of Kim" and surf around his site. He was kind enough to write about and link to a couple of pieces we wrote. Chicago lost a real citizen of the world when Kim left town for Texas. His essays on the mayor are a joy to read.

Murph, you picked the wrong Sup. to suck ass to way too early in career. You should hope the promotions come before he retires or you will be a bike patrol Sgt the rest of your career. Or maybe back to narcotics because you are very knowledgeable in the field.......NOT!

We'll trade you our mayor and city council for fifty-one kangaroos. No worries, mate?

Food for thought...

To prove the city really doesn't have a clue about what is going on in any aspect of the LT's make up exam...consider that the Cubs are playing the SOX on the Southside that same day (Sat 6/23). And after both teams catchers were fighting last year and no control over beer sales at the Cell and with the drunks from both sides of town out of their minds, don't you think that an adequate amount of SGT's should be in attendance at the game to monitor overzealous young coppers in case there is trouble. Does the city really have a handle on what is going on or are the winging everything and hoping for the best???

And if there are enough Sgt's at the game, what about for the rest of the city in the Districts?? Couldn't the city have chosen the week before or after the game???

And I'm sure all of the 2nd/3rd watch sgt's in the city will take the make up exam if for nothing else but to get out of work for the day. And all of the Specialized Units (that is an oxymoron) Sgt's will probably be off anyway. Who will be in charge. Sgt's with less than 2 yrs and couldn't take the test?? Give me a break. Wake up citizens, the criminals are running the city.

A second thought....if CEO's are accountable for producing a good product/service, why isnt Arne Duncan accountable for good test scores. Why is the answer to that question is that they always need more money?

Thank you for your time and I will be pouring another cocktail...over and out!

First off congrats to SCC for hanging in there so long...........
Totally off Topic, words of wisdom from the ferret smurf that calls himself mayor; "It's very sad that [Elias Munoz] was charged, allegedly took photos that were used to produce illegal IDs," Mayor Daley said. "It has nothing to do with immigration. This is basically a criminal activity."

After reading the ferret's response I immediately began to hyperventilate, my coffee was pouring across the kitchen floor, and my dog was looking at me funny!!! "Nothing to do with immigration" NEWSFLASH to the ferret: Illegal Aliens is a criminal activity, mind you I refuse to call these people immigrants, because they aren't, there is no such thing as an illegal immigrant, an immigrant is a person who leaves one country to take up residence in another, they are the accepted stand in line and waited their turn people, who have follow all of the rules for entry, paid all their fees. crossed their "T's" and dotted their "i" and are properly documented. So FERRET, how do you say Illegal Aliens, criminal activity !!!

Just when all of us were feeling secure from the terror of suicidal, jihadist cells, Otis "Cortez" Trotter is "stepping down."

Don't let the door hit you in the ass on your way out, you worthless Daley hack. Hopefully, you will retire to your Anbar Province vacation home between Ramadi and Fallujah.

THIS JUST IN FROM WGN-TV NEWS at NOON.


Chief of Emergency Planning of the city of Chicago Cortez Trotter has resigned to take a job in the private sector wit the former head of FEMA.

Trotter says he left the city better than when he found it. Mayor Daley praised him.

THIS JUST IN FROM THE NEWS DESK....

Word out of 35th Street is that Phil Cline is done tommorrow, on Friday June 1st.

It appears there was an argument over Phil not being allowed to make command changes and move people around.

Hiram Grau will be the interim Supe in charge (proves that Dana was in WAY over his head) until the new Supe can be found.

Finally, Phil was not going to make sure his son gets promoted - not this soon anyway. That is a favor that will come later. If you want to know if the fix is on look to see if a "Murphy" gets promoted.

I would like to thank the 22nd Dist Day Crew, Wagon and a couple of Cars Including Tact, along with CFD for their quick response to the Traffic accident at 110th/Drake around 2 pm this afternoon. A Drunk ILLEGAL alien with fake IDs hit one car, attempted to flee, struck a Pregnant woman and her 2 kids who were in a mini-van at 110th/Drake then ran up on the lawn striking a fellow city workers vehicle that was parked in his driveway. The ILLEGAL alien was held by off duty CPD and CFD and was DUIed. The ILLEGAL aliens Lincoln Navigator was impounded. If this would have happened 20 mins later he would have taken out a group of kids coming home from school. Thank you for the quick response CFD and CPD. And yes I know for a FACT he was illegal.

Bless you SCC but inquiring minds need to know. When will the line of second city cop clothing going to hit the stores.

Murphy used to sell t shirts at narcotics i'm sure with his marketing experience and other work related scams the clothing line wouldgo over well. I would luv the official SCC baseball shirt to wear over my uniform at court, and at union meetings. I would be proud to wear the hat and baseall shirt at check off.
