Another "Beating"

Channel 2, Channel 5, Channel 7, Sun Times, Tribune.

We're going to summarize a few comments that caught our eyes in the various comment sections:
  • The "victim" has been named as a gang member in a number of comments and it's been reported so by a number of news outlets. BUT, we are noticing more and more of the news reports are deleting that allegation. One outlet has even posted a variation on the "innocent altar boy" theme saying that the "victim" can always be found playing saxophone at his church. This media whitewashing is especially troubling.
  • The Officer was the subject of a hit attempt, the cause of a Zero Tolerance operation against a street gang, and continues to have a price on his being wounded or worse. His kid has been the victim of a number of confrontations, assaults and attacks.
We've also heard the "victim" didn't live in the neighborhood and the Officer has been praised by neighbors as always looking out for everyone.

We don't purport to know which of the above is truth or rumor. We don't know what happened in that alley among which persons. We don't know anything for a fact at all. What we do know, and what we learned since an unfortunate incident much earlier in our career, is this simple advice:
  • If you touch them, they go to jail.
That's it. Simple words, yet so often ignored. The second you lay hands on anyone, a case report should be generated, an arrest report completed and a TRR filled out. It is worrying that this doesn't happen as a matter of routine, but it would have saved a bunch of people some grief in recent incidents.

Hands on any one any time, gun pointed at any one especially of duty, paper, g/o, and arrest and signed complaint. AGG assault, state disorderly etc, always sign then get your ass to court, cover your liability appear to prosecute, let the state drop it but do appear. and never back down to a ballless merit watch commander demand charges, i called the first deputy and the union on a southside Lt. Ross 022, do nothin who said the offender was misunderstood when stealing my kids bicycle. Its only going to get worse in cop land with these merit sergeants, merit lts, and ballless captains.

**If you touch them, they go to jail.**

My fellow officers, what is so hard about the above phrase. Every time a copper get's into trouble it's for not doing paper. It doesn't matter if your on or off duty. The days of deny, deny, deny is as ancient as the call box.

We have evolved, in this day of technology, we too must evolve into a smarter police officer. Now I have over 18 years of experience and we must document everything. If I guy attempts to hurt you, you take him out and you lock him up. There is this belief that if you have to do paper it would take all you time. Well don't do the paper and you will lose much more than time.

The officer involved is a great man, father and officer. Yes you are right he should have thrown the cuffs on the little piece of shit but sometimes when it gets so personal that it affects you emotionally we make mistakes. I sincerily hope the truth and what is just and right will prevail. I stand behind him 100% and anything he needs I will do.

I have 2 points about this, and I cannot stress them enough....

1) this is the very reason we need to be able to raise our families OUTSIDE THE CITY OF CHICAGO.

2) I have seen too many SGT's that do nothing but bitch and moan, and threaten to take officers off of their cars because the officer needs to do a TRR, which requires the SGT to get off his ass and approve it.

If you need to do a TRR, then do it! Fuck the SGT who is too lazy to get off his ass, log on to a computer and approve a TRR.
Their indolence is causing good officers their jobs.

Felony Review would NEVER approve charges on an offender who claimed to have sustained injuries that went unreported for two days. Unless the "offender" is a p.o. Even if he did do this, the burden of proof is lacking, Now the piece of shit gang bangers
1) know where this guy and his kid live.
2) know that he has been stripped of police powers and is now unarmed.
If this p.o. or family is hurt or worse, the blood is on IAD's and the dept's hands. He should sue for false arrrest after he is exonerated!!!

Speaking of things getting worse in "Copland"...Yesterday after the Memorial parade ended at Ridge Park, a few 009th Dist officers asked several "Fightin' 022" coppers if they would mind driving them back to 110th Longwood to get their cars, so they could drive and get ready for work. The officers were members of the Windy City Veterans Organization of Chicago. These particular officers begin their watch at 1500hrs. Notice: Ridge Park is on 99th and Longwood-not too far from the desired location.
Long story short...the three Iraq combat veterans/fellow CPD brothers were told that they didn't have time to drive them over. Guess it was lunch time eh boys and girls?

Remember this ALL you 009th Dist coppers when some 022 copper decides to ask you for a favor going to the White Sox game. Don't give them an ounce of courtesy. If they cannot be bothered to help out combat veterans on Memorial Day then FUCK THEM! Nice job remembering the "Thin Blue Line" too you one-way lazy ass 022 motherfuckers!

If that's true it's a shame and that Sgt. is a j/o. i am a Sgt. and I always stress to the troops to do the trr if they have to, the problem I have is when then have a situation and should do one, they opt not too, clean the guy up or so, " he's ok now, he's calmed down etc. etc. then he hits the lockup and decides to beef he's hurt, or makes his one phone call to OPS, now it's a beef and they are jammed up. All the above posters are correct, hands on, they got to jail, do the trr if you need too!

All district commanders will be provided with wireless video transmissions from all pod cameras in DOC areas to their homes.

In turn, the 25 commanders will contact Operations Command via BlackBerry to log in and monitor activity from their respective residences for a minimum of twenty hours per week during the third and first watches.

Hey P.O.,

Where ever you call home- it's home. Just because it's a shit nest to you doesn't mean that it's a shit nest to him-- it is the one neighborhood he knows and loves.
It's very idiotic of you to think that- you have to leave an area once you become a p.o. Lots of people choose not to leave their "SHIT NEST". This officer knew this area, knew the people, the consequences and outright chose to stay and live here as a p.o. This fellow p.o. didn't turn his back on the one community he knows as home, many p.o.'s live in Pilsen and choose Pilsen as their "SHIT NEST" and despite what you may think- this officer is actually a very good guy and lots of residents are actually backing his actions.

So in other words-- GO FUCK YOURSELF and FUCK all respondents who are going to say that Gallegos got what he deserved because he chose to continue to live here in Pilsen.

To whomever posted this garbage you obviously don't work in 004.

The D/C, and all 3 captains do a tremendous job backing up their officers in all types of situations. And 90% of the Lt.s and Sgts. are there to do the same.

Hell, within the last couple months 004 had a 15 minute car chase that started and involved 004 officers. The bosses carried that, and a couple weeks ago we had the officer involved shooting. The bosses took care of there side of things on that too.

No clue who, what or why you caused you to think you can't get into any type of incident down in 004? Maybe you just need an excuse not to get into anything....

I will buy a ticket to your benefit hero. Everyone who said it before is right. If you do police work on or off duty, Drop paper! Just remember if you hit someone and let them go (after they know you are the police), you have just given them the opportunity to go out, get a lawyer, and begin prosecution against you, the dept, and anyone else they can think of. All this before you even think about protecting yourself. You lay hands on someone, drop paper, get your version out first and let them defend themselves at criminal court first. That way you are hiding nothing, you've done what the department demands you are accountable for, and your job is all that much more secure. Will you still get sued? probably yes, but you were acting under the "color of authority" and that goes a long way to indemnifying you to prosecution.

This Chicago priest is apparently ready to give more than a beating -

NEWS RELEASE
SAF WANTS MINISTER INVESTIGATED FOR THREATS AGAINST GUN DEALER
BELLEVUE, WA – The Second Amendment Foundation is asking the U.S. Department of Justice to investigate a Chicago priest for threatening to “snuff” suburban Riverdale firearms retailer John Riggio during an anti-gun protest rally Saturday, May 26, near Chuck’s Gun Shop.

SAF founder Alan Gottlieb is sending a letter to Assistant U.S. Attorney General Wan Kim, head of the Justice Department’s Civil Rights Division, asking that the agency also investigate the Rev. Michael Pfleger for essentially encouraging a crowd of about 200 protesters to drive Riggio out of business. The gun shop has been in business for more than 30 years, and Riggio is the second-generation owner.

In a stunning audio recording of Pfleger’s remarks, the pastor of St. Sabina’s Church can clearly be heard stating, “John Riggio…we’re going to find you and snuff you out.” Moments later, Pfleger added, “We’re going to snuff out John Riggio, we’re going to snuff out legislators that are voting…against our gun laws and we’re coming for you because we are not going to sit idly.”

“It is common knowledge that the term ‘snuff’ is street slang, in Chicago and elsewhere, for killing someone,” Gottlieb said after hearing the recording. “If John Riggio, or I, or any other gun owner were to make that kind of public statement in reference to Rev. Pfleger, you can bet the authorities in Chicago, and the local and national press, would want us behind bars.

“We’re asking for a Justice Department investigation,” he explained, “because Rev. Pfleger incited his audience to take whatever action is necessary to put Mr. Riggio out of business. Chuck’s Gun Shop is a legal business, operating under both state and federal laws, and Mr. Riggio has a legal right to operate such a business.

“We simply can’t rely on the notoriously anti-gun Cook County prosecutor’s office for an unbiased inquiry,” Gottlieb said. “There is no doubt in my mind that Rev. Pfleger’s threats should be investigated. You cannot hide behind the color of political rhetoric or a clergyman’s robe when you publicly declare that someone ought to be harmed and deprived of his civil rights and livelihood.”

I agree that veterans and PO's deserve a higher degree of service, but part of your story doesn't add up.....the parade was over at noon, yet you say this was a 1500 start car that refused the ride at 99th and Longwood Drive. If it was a 1500 start car, they were not out on the street until 1545 or so, given roll call.
You wouldn't have been drinking in the park with the veterans (you know, the guys with the tent and two kegs along the Rock Island tracks behind the old fieldhouse), and been told you're not driving drunk today. We already have too many drunk cops driving around the area every night. The walk back to your car might have saved your life, get some air into you.

what gives you the right to ask for a ride from 022, we live here and cant get any police service except the f/1/ traffic car who writes are kids on homan and central park.

You would have gotten a ride from the grateful public before asking the "fighting 22nd" do you not know every tac sergeant is a merit sgt? HI dm @ co.

God bless you for ure service to this country but remember where you are. Patronage make believe police will never help the real police.

Regarding the above comment about the officers who work in 022, I was thinking of writing a reply to this individual, but why should I waste my time.

I work in Tact in 008 and can rarely get to work out west. Im by far not the greatest copper around but,I lock up my bust out neighbors when ever I get the chance. Ive got coke heads, heroin addicts , burglars, a jagoff that sells flowers on the off ramp. Guess what I pay a fortune to co habitat with these asswipes. The city is going to shit. I thought that when I bought my house having a ton of coppers on the block would be great, however most dont do a fucking thing or wont say a word to anyone off duty. They dont even call the police. People look the other way and hope" If I dont look at it, maybe it will disappear." If your one of these cops that dosent want to take a little intiative on duty or off. Blockbuster is always hiring.

To Sharky:
Apparently you must of had a few too many yourself. The P.O.s that were looking for a ride had a 1500 start, the officer they asked was a 2nd watch officer, and they asked at around noon for the ride, when the copper told them "sure in a few minutes." Then the copper stood across the street with his back to the off duty P.O.s for a good fifteen minutes until they left. Then the jackass seeing the P.O.s walk away jumped in his squad and took off.

I also live in your area and agree! Your right why don't ric flair let more tac guys work the west end? Simple he does not live there!

Looking back at my many years in Englewood when everyone there used to say shit about me, (Same shit 15 years later) Hard work and getting you ass out of the car puts shitbags in jail. If your driving through the 008th District and happen upon Mike Or Sean you will find them doing there job having some shitbag stopped. Most of us came on this job ready to go runnin gunnin and part one-in. Most of you who read this blog have run out of steam in that area in you second year on the job.

I'm a merit boss, and fuck you dickhead. The vast majority of bosses out there help their people on a daily basis. A good boss helps his people and keeps it to himself, the P.O. who fucks up sure isn't going to tell everyone how he screwed up and consequently the boss's actions go unnoticed.

THAT'S HOW A GOOD BOSS WANTS IT>
Be leary of the so-called good boss who belly-ups to the bar and tells everyone how much he helps everyone and tells stories out of school. They tend to be the most trecherous and back stab you behind your back, I know first hand, I've been at these bitch sessions, while the boss who takes care of his people behind the scenes gets labeled as the enemy and merit, why, because he's low keyed, goes home after work and has no interest in hanging in a bar with his troops when most of his troops are 20 yrs. younger then him.

Fuck all you useless prick P.O.'s who hammer bosses, only about 10% of P.O.'s can survive this job on their own - without a boss looking out for them. The rest of you jags would be taking time and being sparred constantly.

Imagine how screwed he'd be if he WASN'T a cop!

Your comments are kind of funny in a sick way. A NON-cop in Chicago is TOTALLY screwed. He has no way to defend his family, and if he tries YOU will arrest him for trying to defend HIS family with an unregistered weapon (which you won't let him register in the first place).

YOU have virtually no legal duty to protect ANY individual who lacks a "special relationship" with the police. I'm more likely to have a "special relationship" with Halle Berry.

But here you are WHINING about not being able to [maybe justifiably] beat the crap out of somebody WITHOUT doing some paperwork.

Cry me a river. You've got the power of arrest AND a gun (not counting any extra "drop" guns you might have). Anybody else in that backed up toilet of a city (other than aldermen) would be up shit creek without the preverbial paddle, much less an effective tool of self-defense.

No one helped HIM? Who the hell's going to help anyone who's NOT a cop? What the hell are YOU going to do? Draw a chalk outline around the victim and head out for Jesse's Short Stop Inn...

yeah, we've got guns.. and the powers of arrest, and the day you decide you're going to drive around for 8 1/2 hours a night solving everyones problems and running toward the sound of the guns instead of away from it, then you can go through the academy and get your gun and arrest powers. Police are supposed to be empowered for a reason, because we may be called upon to make the ultimate sacrafice in the line of duty as many have, but instead of appreciating these facts, the media, along with the general consensus wants to crucify the entire department over a few reprehensible acts commited by even fewer off duty police. Its exactly this type of mentality that makes us want to do the bare minimum which would result in a lot of 'reporting' on our behalf but a lot less actual protecting or solving crimes. Apparently thats what society wants though with your warm and fuzzy police bullshit. All it takes is an accusation nowadays to get a jagoffs name in the paper alledging another 'rogue cop'. Its bullshit and we all know that, but with that being said... I know there's those of you out there that are still doing the right thing. Not just handling your job but going out to find the criminals before the commit the crime or even catching them in the act instead of waiting for it to be reported. Who gives a shit about what these whining lawsuit happy yuppies and thier shitbird gangbanger counterparts think? I for one took the job for other reasons and plan to keep doing exactly what Im doing. After all, we are held to a higher standard because there is something inherently different about us: we actually put our lives on the line when it matters and they are not man enough to do it.

To all the balless Capts. out there:

Just remember this the next time you have an officer in your office with something for you to sign or approve. WE ALL CAN'T STAND YOUR LAZY ASSES!!!!

Most of us curse the day they ever brought back the useless rank. You all have nice soft necks for the brass to place thier large boots upon and squeeze every worthless number they can out of you. You are whipping boys/girls for the Commander to get his whip on.

I lay in bed at night and have wet dreams about the days of yore when most watch commanders were stand up guys/girls who took care of thier people. They were Lts. making out-of-grade pay and usually had a smile on thier face and a warm hello for you when you entered thier office. They had an open door policy and were understanding of certain delicate situations. "You need time? No probelm. Hey, it's your time. You've earned it." "Is that piece of shit gangbanger giving you problems? Take him straight back to lock-up. Tell 'em I said it was okay." "Your wife/kid/mother/grandmother/sister/etc. is sick. Get outta here. I'll take care of it."

Aaaaaaah, the good old days.....

It has been replaced with, "What now???" " Did you knock first, officer?" "No time due, book is full. You'll have to find someone else to take care of your sick kid." "What have you done for me lately?" "Sorry, the Commander is leaning on me." "You're off you car. You can work with numbnutts now."

The rank of Capt. is a sham. It's a political tool for the brass to use to get what they want: numbers.

Sweet dreams, Cap.

A HIGHER standard than WHO??? Sadr's Mehdi Army? Let me casually throw out a name... WEEMS. You seem to be saying that I can DELIBERATELY (nobody shoots a double-action revolver with the hammer down by ACCIDENT) blow an unarmed man's brains out when he's [ADMITTEDLY now] not a threat to me, ON CAMERA, and I'll get a thirty day suspension, followed by a PROMOTION??? If that's true, you've solved a COUPLE of thorny problems for me! Thanks for the tip on how to both increase my gun buying budget AND get rid of non-performing parts suppliers at the SAME time!

I've got news for you. EVERY Chicagoan who isn't a cop, DICK Daley or an alderman not only takes his life in his hands EVERY time he steps out of the house, he does so when he stays at home too. Remember, only highly trained "professionals" like Alvin Weems and Tony Abbate get to have guns in Apartheid Chicago. You may not have heard, but 911 is a communications system of variable reliability, NOT a matter transporter which instantly deposits Jon Burge between the caller and whatever peril confronts them. EXPERIENCE tells me that the Chicago PD may not WANT to protect any given individual from a threat. COMMON SENSE tells me that in most instances they CAN'T do so, whether they want to or not.

I actually have a modicum of trust in my local PD. They don't murder people. They don't beat up women. They don't start fights in bars. I don't know if they steal, but they sure don't do home invasions. They even have a fairly good response time. That having been said, only a fool would place his life in their hands. The last time I called them, they came FAST... just not fast enough to stop somebody from beating, stabbing or shooting me to death. And as I said, I kind of trust them. The Chicago PD? Not so much...

"The good old days?" Heck, the W/Cs where I work now do the same thing. Time due is rarely refused.
Guys back each other up on calls.
Officers who don't feel well during the tour usually get excused, via the Sarge to the W/C.
I don't see where that much has changed, as far as that part of the CPD is concerned. I even see the D/C responding to calls, even coding a few of them out! I've worked with a few old timers who tell me they never heard or saw that before when they were new
cops! I can honestly say I have yet to have a bad day at work.
3rd watch is great in 003. Lots of good people I've learned a lot from. A lot of guys from my class are doing a lot worse in some of the other districts, having a hard time finding anybody who wants to work.
