Sergeants Lawsuit

We don't often cover issues exclusive to bosses. We know that bosses read this site, but for the most part, we cover stuff of interest to the guys and gals on the front lines. But this kind of affects everyone who hopes to be promoted one day. The Sergeants Association lost their initial appeal in court this week to stop the Lieutenant "re-test" as it utilizes the exact same questions/scenarios as the earlier version, meaning every single person has the questions in advance, undermining the theory of test being an evaluation of "thinking on one's feet."

We don't know who this judge is (Bernetta D. Bush) that ruled for the City, but it's obvious she has no grasp of reality. Here's part of the City's lawyers reasoning to deny the suit that she bought hook, line and sinker (from Second City Sarge):
  • 51 of the original tests had technical problems.
    None of the tests had been scored.
    The City’s Attorneys stated this is a fair process. Additionally, there is the 30% meritorious process available to every eligible candidate.
Two of these statements appear to be mutually exclusive. If the City knows there were 51 original tests with "technical problems" how can they say none of the test were graded? The City had these tests for 6 months and nothing got graded? Sorry, but we're calling bullshit on that one. And the 30% meritorious "available" to every eligible candidate? Excuse us while we laugh. And laugh. And laugh some more. A "mericloutorius" position is only available to a certain select few of proper blood lineage and political sponsors.

Here's our theory, based on years of experience and observation of the City promotional processes:
  • The tests were graded. And the results didn't turn out anything like what the City had planned. We're talking light years from the City's expectations.
  • The City dreamed up this "re-test" to provide connected persons with a second opportunity to take what is now a known test - known so well that even Sun Times columnist Mark Brown has the questions and has published them in the newspaper.
  • This time, the City has changed the answers instead of the questions. And certain people will have the key words or phrases that will get them that extra point or two since everyone is going to score better this time since they know the test. Certain key words like "notify the Watch Commander" or "a writing instrument" or even "a large pepperoni pizza" will carry the day for connected persons, leaving more "mericloutorious" positions available to the real morons.
And if the City gets away with this for Lieutenant's promotions, who knows what they are going to do for Sergeants and even Detectives? We are so doomed.

Oh c'mon SCC you really aren't that naive?
You're purporting the examination process is legit in the 1st place?

The Sgt.'s should be thankful they were promoted and concentrate on treating people right.

Lawsuit?

If you are not a minority, a broad, a political hack, or in a protected catagory, you have no chance for promotion. The city should just give the promotions to their pals and dispense with the charades of a "testing" process.

I love 6:45 A.M. Another of "I am the smartest and greatest Copper out there" so since I didnt make it nobody made it legit. Why dont you take a flying F**K at a rolling donut, asswipe. I was laughed at because I took a furlo to study. I was laughed at because I paid for the Bernstein Class which did help me (by the way it paid for itself after 2 sgt. checks. I was laughed at because I took it seriously. Well guess who's laughing now. Get back in your beat car and whine to the recruits about how great coppers like you are always screwed, and keep doing it during the next study period for the next test, and ill kepp telling you what to do.

BULL SHIT, I made it on my own 2 times, I fell between the cracks which is very difficult I know. But the point of this retest is to try and take away that chance at all. I believe that this is the last Lt. test the next will be all merit no test at all. This retest and the problems with it will be used to justify the city not giving a test in the future. The idea of the tests not being scored yet is also a joke. SCC is 100% right, they did not like the results so they are going to roll the loaded dice this time.

You, sir, are an idiot if you truly believe that no one has ever been promoted legit. It sounds to me like you're crying sour grapes.

It's such an attitude that will prevent you from ever doing well on a promotional exam. Because of this thought process, you will never really put forth the effort to properly prepare yourself for the exam. Too bad.

I appplaud the Sergeants' Association for trying to stop this re-test charade, but I question the decision to file suit in state court.

Any relief granted against the police department in matters of hiring and promotion has come from the federal court system where judges are appointed for life and beholden to no one.

The state court judges, within Cook County in particular, are beholden to the Cook County Democratic Party due to the corrupt "slating" process that takes place for the election of judges.

Who runs the Cook County Democratic Party? The Daley Brothers - Dick and John. Who is responsible for the this Lieutenant Exam do-over? None other than our mayor.

So, what is the chance lieutenant candidates will be granted relief from the City's patently unfair re-test process in state court? NONE whatsoever.

Once again, the unconnected have to hope that there is some crack in the promotional process through which they could fall to legitimately be promoted to lieutenant.

Highlights from the hearing before Judge Bernetta D. Bush.

1. The city’s lawyers argue that even if the test is flawed, the Sergeants still have other ways to get promoted, the 30% meritorious. The 25 Sergeants in the courtroom spontaneously let out a huge laugh. Judge Bush then threatens to clear the courtroom.
2. Although the City’s study guide repeatedly states that the test questions are “designed to test your ability to think on your feet when encountering spontaneous situations.” The City’s lawyers argue that the fact that the test takers know all of the questions is completely irrelevant.
3. Judge Rush stated that the City has a long history of corrupt testing practices.
4. The test guide states in several places that the answers to the questions “will be scored according to detailed scoring guidelines developed with these (CPD) subject matter experts and senior command personnel in the Chicago Police Department.” The City’s lawyers denied the reality that these CPD personnel would have talked to Sergeants after the first test and let them know what answers they were looking for thus giving these Sergeants an unfair advantage.

I could go on but I have to go review my answers.

Legit - Ha! Nothing about this dept. is legit. The P.O.s should sue for unfair promotional practices. How else can a dog-ass p.o. who never did jack sh*t get promoted in the first place? The real ball buster is that the same p.o.s that were dogs on the street (if they even worked the street)become sgt/lt/cmdr etc., and expect everyone else to work like japanese beavers to bring in #s just to make themselves look good. What a joke! And what's with these female supervisors? Here's a tip: you don't treat people like sh*t to get respect; that just reaffirms that you neither deserve nor earned your rank - remember that respect is earned, not given. Let's face it, this job runs itself, so little, if any supervison is required. The p.o.s know what to do, so let them do their job. And if one of them does screw up, the whiteshirts are covered -- they will sacrifice a blueshirt to appease the ignorant masses. Take your promo, your paycheck, and be thankful ...enough said?

The sergeants were NOT promoted to lieutenant.

I could easily say that YOU should be happy to have just been hired as a P.O. and treat the citizens right instead of worrying about making detective or sergeant.

All many coppers ever worry about is themselves .. (Perhaps one day you will be a sergeant attempting to make lieutenant or a lieutenant attempting to make captain)

One-Way selfish assholes like you will be the first ones to agree to a "two-tier" system if the city offers one during contract negotiations. ie; Give the new guy only 10 medical days so you can get an extra 3% raise OR.. perhaps drop the meritorious promotions to only 10% so YOU CAN MAKE SERGEANT.

You selfish fucking prick.

Just want to make a quick comment her, and for the record I’m a Sergeant.

To the 6/22/2007 06:45:00 AM poster….SCREW YOU! I made Detective on my own by taking the test and scoring in the top 80. I also made Sergeant 12 years ago on my own by scoring in the top 170, so your contempt for the system and your inability to get yourself promoted should mean nothing to those of us who have done it on our own. Grow up and think rationally, your conspiracy theorist attitude seems to be keeping you down.

Relating to the Lieutenant’s test… I took the test and had no technical difficulties. On the day of the test though, I did hear several complaints about some simple things like the tape recorder malfunctioning and a laptop shutting down and needing to be rebooted. I really don’t care that there are several candidates that need to be retested. I think they did the right thing by asking for anyone who had TECHNICAL problems to come forward and put it on record. I also think in the spirit of fairness, those who did come forward and have documented cases of technical problems (You know the proctors will have it documented too), should have an opportunity to take an oral portion again. However, I think that a NEW oral portion should be created (At the cost of the testing company) and re administered to the “51” who had problems. Giving the same question is an outrage! Yes, everyone has the opportunity to take it again, but, 1) Why should I have to and 2) Why is everyone getting a second chance, even though they didn’t have a documented technical issue. The answer to #1 - In order to compete with those who now have the answers, #2 - Well, I guess therein rests the opportunity for scandal, and the fuel for the conspiracy theorists. The only fair process would be to retest the “51” with a new oral and let the other grades stand. I don’t know what mine is, I’m sure someone does, but I did what I did on the day of the test. So did everyone else! Hold the grades until the “51” are tested and graded and promote the winners (And the 30% of course).

Back each other up and use the resources we have available. Apply the right resources and we’ll win, just use the power of the pen and be able to justify whatever you do. We can lawfully do much more that we ever do, and it’s ok, just justify it! Never let anyone ride on a job alone- your presence means more than you think.

WHAT THE HELL DO YOU MEAN "GOING TO DO..."? THEY'RE DOING IT NOW!!! WHAT THE HELL TOOK SOOO LONG TO GRADE OUR TESTS? MAKING SURE THAT EVERY CLOUT BABY'S SCORE ADDED UP JUST ENOUGH TO GET PROMOTED. THEY ARE DOING IT THIS WAY SO THAT THEY KEEP THE FEDS AT BAY. THE ILLUSION THAT EVERYTHING IS ON THE UP-AND-UP AND YOU KNOW WHAT I MEAN!!!! INVITATION ONLY "STUDY CLASES", ETC., ETC.,. THIS WAY THEY STILL HAVE 30% MERITORIOUS. IT'S MORE LIKE 50-60%. JUST LOOK AT ALL THE PEOPLE WHO SCORED WELL ON THE TEST. I KNOW QUITE A FEW OF THEM WHO CAN'T WALK AND CHEW GUM AT THE SAME TIME. OF COURSE, THERE ARE A FEW WHO FELL THROUGH THE CRACKS. JUST ASK ONE OF THE FEW REAL GOOD SGT'S....THEY'LL TELL YOU..."I FELL THROUGH THE CRACKS". THEY TELL US THIS THEMSELVES, REMEMBER??? "JUST ONE OR TWO POINTS ARE GOING TO SEPARATE YOU FROM EVERYONE ELSE". WHY CAN'T WE SEE OUR ANSWERS AFTER THEY'VE BEEN SCORED??? ADD IT ALL UP...IT STINKS TO HIGH HEAVEN AND WE'RE THE ONE'S WHO GET SCREWED. THE CITY DOES EVERYTHING TO KEEP THE FEDS OUT... i.e. TRAFFIC STICKERS, CONTACT CARDS, ALL THE USELESS PAPER GENERATED. IF THE FEDS COME IN LIKE IN L.A., THERE GOES CLOUT AS YOU KNOW IT. MERITORIOUS WILL STILL EXIST BUT AS IT SHOULD, WITH THE DESERVING GETTING THE PROMOTIONS. THEN THE CITY WILL TRY ELIMINATE THE MERITORIOUS IN THE VERY NEXT CONTRACT. OH WHAT A WORLD IT WOULD BE!!!!!!

When I got promoted in '96, a judge blocked some meritorious promotions because he said the city "changed the rules" aftey they gave the test. It took them over 10 years, but the city finally found their loophole: instead of changing the rules, change the answers!

Now excuse me while I go to the basement and practice my answers out loud. I have to work on getting the sarcastic and bitter tone out of my voice.

Maybe for each answer I should just giggle like an idiot and say "This is just silly silly silly."

WITH THE TECHNOLOGY WE HAVE TODAY, AND THE MILLIONS OF DOLLARS SPENT ON THE TEST, WE CAN'T DO ANY BETTER THAN MAXWELL CASETTE TAPES AND BRADY BUNCH TAPE RECORDERS???

Baby, baby, only in Chicago!!

Glass stomach. Is that your attempt at being cerebral?
Well Jagoff my head isn't up my ass!
Disgruntled stooges like yourself spend 8 hours in a car boring some poor sap about the injustices the job has inflicted upon them.
Get over yourslef stroke!
30% meritorious is 3 times more than the city should get but belittling those who did crack the top 300 is disingenious on your part.
What happen malcontent? Did you take the last sergeants test and finish 2000 on the list? How could that be? Your the smartest copper out there.
Well at least you know that Denial isn't a river in Egypt.

The only reason why you don't think a sergeant can make your life hell is because you have some easy going Sgts where you’re at.

If a sergeant gets a hard on for you, he can follow you to every job and make your life hell. He can demand that everyone checkoff at 20 after the hour and then put the blame on you because you refuse to conform.

Yes, he can nitpick about every little thing (hell, he can even set you up) And nowadays, they have video cameras so don't think about setting his car on fire or putting a brick through his house window.

I have seen the biggest and worst jag-off sergeants in my 34 years. And the bottom line is YOU LOSE, your life will be miserable. You can only hope the guy has a grabber and dies or else you have to bid out.

I got lucky and passed the test (aka: nothing more than a lottery ticket) without any juice. And, never spending a day in college / pre-1998.

Now, I make $25,000+ more than YOU, a Patrolboy ($11,000 more than a D-1 / 45 minutes a day selling back 200 hours @ $8000 / Supervisors Quarterly at over $6000)

Guess who works harder? YOU! Guess who has to do what I say when I tell you to do it?? YOU! Ohh, you don’t want to?? Make sure you tell me to go fuck myself in front of a couple other "white shirts" when you refuse to obey my orders - - You will get a nice 30 day unpaid vacation courtesy of the Area Deputy Chief.

Jealoooussssssssssss???

Therein lies the problem personality conflicts and they resort being Bullies. Chicago Police Department where you can be the Biggest Jagoff in the World & get rewarded for it.

Any one see a problem with that?

34 year lost hope if you are still working than it's apparent you have been institutionalized & this is the best it's going to get for you. Fill out a PAR form & try to have a life before you are a recipient of the Grabber.NOW!!

Great you studied. Promotional tests are not a good indicator to measure a person's ability to lead. At least not the one I took.

SO . . .

The bottom line is it sounds as though there might have been a number of screw-ups on THIS RE-Test.. Perhaps notification should be made to LT. Lyle MYERS in Personnel and the SGTs Association. MYERS was the one who gathered all the To/Froms for all the beefs from the January test

. . . here we go again! Screw this damn city ! !

You know, I did not have a problem with the test being given again until the day of the test. As I stood in line waiting past 10:30 to get into the test, a few of the guys and I started talking. The 9 of us were talking about the scenarios. I thought I did very good the first time, but wanted to add a few details to one of my scenarios, so I re-took the test. The guys I was talking to were all idiots. They all allowed the protestor to protest and had no idea the security guard could make an arrest. They all laughed because now they knew the answers, and were given the chance to redo the test.

I really have an issue with this. They probably scored 790 - 799 out of 800 the first time, but now can actually give me competition when they don't know jack shit, and did not even study for the test. I studied my entire vacation for the first test and all of my days off, missed family and friends functions, etc. I am tired of being the middle man and just want out legitimately.

This re test thing is totally fucked up.

Did anyone watch Fox News about P.O. Valerie Allen is suing Cline because she felt she was passed over for making sergeant, what an asshole she is. How dare she go to the press with this bullshit.

She admitted she just missed out on passing the test but she felt she should have been considered for a meritorious promotion.

If I'm right, she worked in the Superintendant's office when Hillard ran it, in fact she might have been one of his secetaries so why didn't he promote her before he left Hmmmmm........

You could watch her interview at myfoxchicago.com

You can match wits with the moron (shithead?) sergeant . . however can you give him time? NO! He or she will stick it up YOUR ASS!

Have you ever heard of Capt C.W. in 005????? The BIGGEST moron over-promoted goof on the job now. At least 300 people have left districts were she came and laid her shit. WHY? Because they know she can fuck them.

Please tell me you are a PPO , otherwise you are an idoit yourself. Perhaps never had a bad day on this job with a jag-off boss.
