Essay Question #4

Final question:
  • Do you believe it necessary to have greater diversity in the makeup of the Department’s
    sworn personnel? If yes, how would you increase the percentage of sworn members from under-represented groups?
We answer: Define diversity for us.

We know coppers of all stripes. We know white cops, black cops, oriental cops of a dozen or more origins. We know hispanic coppers from ten or more Central and South American countries. We know arab coppers, a couple indians and coppers who try to pass as any of the above listed groups. We know males, females, and a couple that we have questions about. Straight, gay, and a whole boatload of freaks. We know cops with eight or nine fingers and one who used to have eleven. We know hard workers, average cops and some of the laziest people to ever wear a uniform. We know a couple of dead cops and a few that went to prison, too.

What is diversity? If the city is looking for one armed, one eyed, wooden legged representation, we'd say that's a bit overboard. This is a pretty diverse Department as it stands. Diversity for diversity's sake is typical liberal stupidity.

You know what? There probably isn't enough money in crooked land deals and city contracts that could get us anywhere near this Superintendent's job. Good luck finding someone who can hold onto their own self respect and personal morality to take what is probably one of the most thankless jobs on earth.

Diversity is part of the major problem with this place.

When you start placing people in supervisor spots due to their ethnic background and not for their qualifications, that is where you have major problems. There are way too many examples in this department that exemplifies this. The quota system is total bullsh*t and as long as this society continues to deify certain "community leaders," idiots will continue to be hired and promoted not only in this department, but corporations as well.

This liberal thinking has also infiltrated schools because there is no such honor as valedictorian any more (except in private schools). They want to get rid of this honor because everyone is equal and they want to make the students believe that no one is smarter than the next person. With this honor gone, there is no goal to attain and as a student, why would you try?

A great way to compare what I’m saying is in the Olympics. Do they give everyone a gold medal just because they showed up from certain countries that have a small representation compared to the United States?? NO. If they want a medal, they actually have to work hard and earn it. Diversity in the work place is like giving everyone (even the spectators) a gold medal that shows up to the Olympics that didn’t even try or didn’t actually earn it. Sounds familiar doesn’t it?

It is the truth and it hurts.

Effective January 1, 2008, America must emulate the diversity of TV shows in which 3 of 4 judges, rocket scientists and brain surgeons are African-Americans.

Furthermore, like TV police shows, less than one percent of violent criminals will be cast as African-Americans. In those rare cases, the crime must be solved and prosecuted by African-Americans.

In all TV commercials, all stupid people will be depicted as Caucasians. A brilliant, articulate and attractive African-American will eloquently inform and correct the utter stupidity of the Caucasian fool--just like real life.

All interracial violent crimes will depict Caucasians preying on African-American victims.

All legal and illegal aliens who have spent at least 24 hours within U.S. borders in the last twenty years will be granted amnesty and full U.S. citizenship and all benefits thereof.

Embrace diversity! Hollywood, Democratic politicians and the mainstream national news media have.

The 21st Century has brought us a NEW America in which we all can be proud.

Diversity did work! Minorities, women,& gays have proven that when cornered or angry, they will make the same "perceived" mistakes as when this was an all male-white dept.
Yes 12:33am, we should celebrate. We should start the party in Oak Park, and take it all the way to Evanstan where we can link up w/the Cusacks and hug each other!

Here is an idea! If you absolutely must promote people based off their race the best way to do is by what they scored on the promotional exam in their pool of each race. So if we absolutely have to take a minority at least he/she is the top of their race based off their score.example: they would still promote aprox. 350 po's off the test based off of score(which I think the city should guarantee to promote the top 10% of test takers. 4,500 took test,top 450 will be promoted) the remainder would be by merit 30% for SGT and 20% for Det. out of the merit % you have to promote half of the % based off their race and the other half % would be people who deserve it( must meet a agreed upon citeria by the city and FOP, such as awards and heroic acts) So lets say I was a f/4 and scored 451 and no other 4's scored higher than me I would be considered next in line based off of score and race.... just an idea, don't think its right but if I had to take a minority at least he/she was the best minority they had to offer not a minority that was 4,449.

Explain to me why can't they issue the same test to anyone. who ever scores the highest, gets the job. When I need a cop or a fireman, I want the best, not some quota filler.

SO MUCH HATE! Before you start bashing let me say this, the remedy of diversity is not necessarily the correct prescription for the flagerant abuse of power that has been the norm for CPD. All too often we forget that just because one is related to the McGillicutty's does not give one the birth right to a higher position. I'm not implying that diversity will rectify the past mistakes of nepotism, political payoffs and the like. Yet the masses have accepted this as a payback for the constant insider gifts of employment, position and promotion. Remember the 19 year old building inspector, this was and has been the Chighetto way. So don't be so quick with the stone you cast, we, me and you, are reaping for the sins of the father. Life sux, get over it. And no, I'm neither a boss nor have I ever been given anything on this job. The only good thing about it is the 1st and the 16th, because of this I and you have been able to provide for our families. I believe that half of these bastards/bitches do not deserve or are qualified to 1. be on the job 2. have the position they hold. I apologize, I believe that question is how would I diversify the department even more...I would hire qualified people who would actually serve the citizens of Chighetto, thereby diversity would be set in with the unqualified.

Chit-cago, place of racial harmony, low crime, great Public Schools, low taxes, low levels of corruption, great role models for our children, and on and on and on, and it just keeps getting better and better,compliments of the liberal Democrats who've held office in Chit-cago for the past 10 decades or so.

Finally, Fox News and the O'Reilly Factor gave long overdue national coverage of the torture murders of the young white couple in Tennessee.

The cover-up proves that the media has a double standard when it comes to diversity.

Diversity? Oh yeah, I am 100% in back of diversity.

Here is the diversity I would dearly like to see:

Let's diversify the department so we have a fair and representative proportion of good bosses along with the other kind we are smothered with now; let's diversify so we have decent, fair, firm sergeants who actually look out for their officers; let's diversify so we have more intelligent, dedicated, hard working police officers; let's diversify so we have a balance of fairly promoted people and PO's in good spots who might actually deserve them; and let's diversify the shit out of the clout assholes, for every clout asshole in some cush job let's diversify by putting alongside the clout cock suckers a copper whose surname is not that of a current or former boss, a copper who knows no one and who never has had a phone call made for him or her.

Sure, diversity, I am all for it. Diversity woooo, up with diversity.

I recently read the book "The Bell Curve," by Charles Murray. Over 1200 whites and recieved 170 or better on the LSAT(Law School Aptitupe Test). 3 or 4 blacks got an equivalent score.

Affirmative action in our universities is more warped than in the workplace.

Whites can't run as fast as blacks, and blacks do not have the cognitive ability of whites.
