Bad News Coming

  • Mayor Daley’s plan to restore public confidence in investigations of Chicago Police wrongdoing cleared its first legislative hurdle today amid claims that the new Office of Professional Standards is not independent enough. [...]

    The new OPS director would now have broader subpoena power and be free to investigate allegations of verbal abuse by police officers based upon a person’s race, color, sex, religion, national origin, sexual orientation or sexual identity.

And this is even better:
  • And instead of investigating only those incidents involving discharge of a firearm “at a person,” the new OPS would be empowered to investigate “discharge of a firearm, stun gun or Taser in a manner which could potentially strike an individual” as well as injuries that occur in police custody.
Correct us if we're wrong, but the only circumstances in which one discharges a "firearm, stun gun or Taser" is to potentially strike someone, be it a resister, assailant or nut job with a knife.

So the "new and improved" OPS is going to investigate every single instance? Where are these investigators going to come from? Where's the money budgeted for this monstrosity? What does their training curriculum look like? And if they have subpoena powers, at what point do our 5th Amendment protections kick in? Just a few questions that the Department and the FOP ought to be asking and answering.

Law without force is impotent
-Ptolemy


How much longer till the Police forces across the country are emasculted? I guess a billy club and a whistle will be the limits of our lethal force options.

Guess between the media and Lawyers we are doomed. Who was it that said kill all the lawyers?

Question for any Chicago Cop:

If someone offered you $250,000 to walk around the streets of Englewood on a hot summer night with your wife and kids with you, would you take it?

For $250,000, you would have to walk around for 1 hour in the Level 2 DOC between 5900 to 7500, Wentworth to Racine. You would have to continually walk up and down the side streets from 8 pm to 9pm with no gun, radio or cell phone. It would be similar to an Urban Survivor or Englewood Survivor? Do you think you would come out unharmed or even alive?

If you wouldn't do it for $250,000, how much would you do it for??

For all of you media scum that read this blog, your hypocritical bleeding hearts know you would never do it although you fuel the fire for discord in the city. You tell those close to you that you love all people but are absolute liars. Spend a Saturday afternoon driving around these neighborhoods and actually observe what is going on. Look for yourself and realize the police aren't lying when they drive up to a father and son with handguns and see how you would react. You are silently responsible for the horrible chain of events that this city will endure in the upcoming years. But you drink your wine at your North shore parties and drink so much that you really believe you are doing society good.

How much would it take for any cop or media whore to sleep in a tent over night at the corner of 70th and Peoria with their family and no gun/radio. If you answered over one million dollars, then we as taxpayers should all be very scared.

Because in all reality, ALL of our homes in the city are only a few miles from Englewood or the West side. Sleep tight.

OFF TOPIC:

Does anyone know what the Illinois State law is regarding Congressman having tinted windows on the front windows when they display Illinois Congressional license plates?

Doesn't Congressman JJ Jr drive a large SUV with all of his windows tinted very darkly? Is there a special law or exemption for this that gives Congressman special priviliges over the tax payers ? And don't CPD officers drive him around?

I know he deserves where he is at through his hard work and would have been in the same position regardless of nepotism and him NOT attending the Chicago Public School system. The apple does not fall far from the tree.

Just wondering.

There is such a backlog at OPS now its crazy,not too long ago i had a # as a witness. The incident was like 18 or 19 months old,and they were just getting around to it??? WTF...R/O has no knowledge!!!! I also took a # years ago, and found i was off the day stated on the complaint. The investigator changed the date 3 times, trying to get it to work for him. Because i was on 1st watch and it was my weekend at the time of the aledged incident , this got him flustered!! My last to/from stated that i would be more than happy to hold a class for the{colege ejumakated} investigators to teach them to read and understand the CPD calander, and how d.o.g.s work. After my Capt. and i were done laughing he sugested i rewrite it, someone might get offended and find it sustained!! Thats our O.P.S.!! If im not mistaken they had to go to the acadamy to get some training by OUR Dics on how to conduct an investigation......WHAT?? You already have the job but cant do an investigation?!?!?!? I also understand they dont have the final say on the disposition of the case. What are the credentials of the man behind the curtain then?? Or should i ask CLOUT?
COMMON SENCE JUST ISNT THAT COMMON ANYMORE!!...feel free to use this line..

I know the police department and the morale has been destroyed years ago, but just when you think it can't get any worse it just keeps going past rock bottom. So many hard working cops are heard saying , "that's it for me, I'll just do the bare minimum and make sure my assets are protected." It sucks that we no longer feel comfortable being the police anymore and going the extra mile. The new OPS will be sticking it up our asses even more especially with the verbal shit. Once agin the shitheads get more tools to fuck us while the honest citizen gets screwed when the police get "de-balled."

BAD NEWS?????????

This is actually GOOD NEWS. This should hopefully be the nail in the coffin for every copper to just answer calls and be reactive to the problems of the ghetto.
If you don't, then its your own fault when your luck dries up.

Can you actually imagine losing your job or going to jail because of some drop out ghetto dog? If their own community does not care then why do you? To get a Dept. Commendation that takes over 2 years to receive? Because that is why you came on the job, to help people? Poleeeze!

Idiot, they don't want your help. The poor community is brainwashed by Jackson and Meeks, who are false idols. They are the Master to the community, the mayor, the police, etc. How else do you become a millionaire defending the poor?

SHAKEDOWN

The hot summer weather will prove to be too much and the murder/agg batt's will increase. And the community will cry it's the fault of the police The poor can't help themselves and know its easier to point the finger and its the govt's responsibility to raise their kids and get them good jobs because of their ENTITLEMENT?

When will everyone wake up and realize the party is over?

Watch the show COPS if you want to get your nut off. Otherwise stay safe, be smart and let's all watch this city burn down with a laugh.

Nothing is more certain than the fact that The Tribune - the conjoined twin of lefty think tanks supported by lefty milliionaires - will give more print face-time for that pair of puckered sphincters with legs: G ( Gangsters!) Flint Taylor and Locke Bowman:

"The impact of Daley's proposal is undermined by the city's labor contract with the Fraternal Order of Police, said Locke Bowman of the MacArthur Justice Center at Northwestern University.

Under one "very pernicious provision," the officer must receive the name of the complainant and advance copies of all witness statements, Bowman said, and all previous unsustained complaints cannot be used against an officer in an investigation, even if there are several."


You would think that these two legal dust-bunnies could find gainful employment.

In 1997 the City and OPS tried to implement changes to the disciplinary process without the approval of the Lodge.

The Lodge filed for expedited arbitration and with the help of several outstanding Exempt Members won a complete and total victory over the City.

If you do not believe me look at the back issues of the FOP Lodge 7 newsletter and minutes of the monthly meetings.

The City can do nothing without the approval of the Lodge.

Again... I must ask you. WHY? WHY? WHY? Are religous figures making legislation? MEEKS, PFLEGER? They only represent their congreagation. NOT the entire City. Here we have a small minority making policy for the majority. WHY? WHY? WHY?

Are there bad apples on the Police Department? Yes!

Are there bad apples on the Fire Department? HELL YES!

Are there bad apples in our own City government? NO DOUBT!

Are there religious leaders like Meeks that abuse the power they are given by the blind flock that follows them? YOU CAN COUNT ON IT!

Only one of the above mentioned entities are raked over the coals. Only one. US! THE MF'n Pole eece.

The police can only act with the power given to us by the voting public.

You want accountablity then let's have at it.

First NO POLITICAL ANNOINTING OF COMMANDERS AND OTHER POLICE BOSSES AND CUSHY SPOTS. That means politcal bosses can't call the Mayor or the Supe and say I want this guy/gal to be the Commander. But I know I'm dreaming. Then how bout if the political stooge steps on his/her pee pee then we can publicly reveal who his sponser is. No we can't do that.

Second make all promotions merit. BUT make the criteria for merit promotions be very, very, hard to make the eligiblity list. Highly qualified officers, not HOUSE CATS, MISTRESSES, DEPUTY'S NEPHEWS etc. etc.

Third re-open the requirements for taking this silly job to a HIGH SCHOOL DIPLOMA or G.E.D. with Military Service. The whole Hillard experiment with the higher educated the officer, the better the officers conduct/perfomance will be, is a BIG FAT FAILURE!! All we got is a bunch of whining, snivling, insolent, insubordanate assholes! That do nothing positive for this Department but take up space and time. Then they get promoted! Argh. One look at the clear up rate in the D unit tells it all.

Make the job of Superintendant an elected job, AND THE CANDIDTAE MUST!! HAVE A LAW ENFORCEMENT BACKROUND! NOT A DALEY STOOGE. ALA TOM DART!

...and I'm spent.

Why should I continue to stick out my neck to enforce the law, and make those neighborhoods a safe environment for others? From now on, when I take enforcement action, it will be in my own neighborhood, where I'll do whatever needs be done to continue to provide a safe environment for my family, friends, and those who appreciate it. Your legacy Mssrs. Cline, Risley, Starks, Williams, and Ms. Egan, and Maher, is not one of crime reduction, nor even one of corruption, although the argument could be made for that, but your legacy is what you've done to Us, the little guys, who have held the line, and reduced your crime.

I answer jobs when I get them, do paper if necessary. I'll make an arrest if the situation calls for it. I'll stop traffic violators and ticket them if I see the violation. When I'm done, I'll come up clear. If something doesn't look right, I'll dig a little deeper until I get an answer.

I don't and won't motherfuck anyone. You never know who you're talking to. Even a dog deserves some degree of respect from me, if for no other reason than it's the right thing to do. They can't hurt you if you don't give them the ammunition.

If I have to, I'll punch/slug/taser/shoot whoever needs it. If I don't have to, I won't.

97% of the time you can't be hurt for doing your job. It's when you take a shortcut, either motherfucking someone, kicking a little ass, not doing paper when it should be. There is always going to be the possibility you can get jammed up for bullshit, but I'll bet I have less of a chance than others.

Just do the job you are being paid to do, no more, no less and things would be a lot better. It sure doesn't help when one of us fucks up. A thousand great jobs won't undue one fuck up. Just don't be the one fuck up.

Say what you will about Leo and I agree that he's a nitwit with an IQ about 1% above that of an absolute moron but I have to give credit where credit is due. He looked sharp on TV last night with capturing the father in Indiana. His flack jacket didn't make him look like the idiot some of you would like - he looked like a man who could get things done and would kick in whatever doors are necessary to do it. I've rarely seen a Commander look more like a man who was willing to lead his troops into battle against whatever evil is out there. You can bet he garnered points big time for both himself and the Dept.

OTOH, God only knows how many laws he broke going into Indiana to grab Daddy. But at least he didn't kidnap the guy and drag him back into Illinois as I would have expected. There was probably an Indiana State Police commander around who stopped him. I can also imagine the high-speed chase which took place. It all seems pretty excessive but 35th Street probably views the positive PR as well worth it.

97% of the time you can't be hurt for doing your job. It's when you take a shortcut, either motherfucking someone, kicking a little ass, not doing paper when it should be. There is always going to be the possibility you can get jammed up for bullshit, but I'll bet I have less of a chance than others.

Just do the job you are being paid to do, no more,

This is not true I have 25 years as a patrolmen(leaving real soon) 18 in a fast dist,Yet during my time I will tell you, if you have no clout you can and will be hammered if the CPD needs a fall guy. truth be told.

What o what will the city do when all the hard working people on this site who declared they are not working any more do quit working. The city will be on it's knees. we will have to get our own guns and board up our houses. O wait we do that now. They are changing "White Hen Pantry" stores to "Seven Eleven" in honor of all the beat cars that hang out there.

I don't know anything about him, but he did look/sound professional & ready to kick ass,

It's also refreshing to see a District Commander who looks like they're in shape --- not gut haning below the belt/red face, healthy and built like one of our A/2 Gun Team Members aka Mack Trucks...

I have known Leo and worked with him in the past. He is a down to earth tact guy at heart. Not to mention a person who will help anyone wearing a uniform. Stand up, which is more than I can say about most.

Any blue shirt who pulled what Leo did would have every nervous nellie boss on his watch or in his District looking for his scalp and screaming into the radio to terminate the chase. Forget about crossing the Stateline, forget about hot pursuit. Remember, nothing that Leo did was really necessary - this was a known offender - he was going to turn up, there was no need for the chase other than Leo proving his manliness. Suppose for the sake of argument that somebody had been killed during the chase or the arrest - nonr of us would look too good then.

Interesting point on the UNEMPLOYMENT, some officers who have been fired have received it and others have had it contested by the City and lost.

Another one of those mysteries, does CLOUT extend to those who file for unemployment while 30 days pending too?
