We wish these guys would post more often. Especially in light of recent events. But they have two articles up as of this past Friday, both dealing with the Durkin Park incident from the other side of the radio:

The second link is the one taking a local editorial to task for basic ignorance of the way the system works. All in all, a good read.

This is the world's smallest violn, playing just for the dispatchers. The media always looks for a scapegoat, they don't care about the real resons behind the scene, so welcome to our world.

Those park cars are useless. They don't do sh*t. They even have those off-duty guys working security out of Riis Park that are useless. The regular park car works whatever hours it wants (1400-2200 on weekends?) so they are not even there for park closing?

I agree, a great read. That dispatch blogmaster continually proves him or herself to be insightful, articulate, and entertaining, with the just the right amount of sarcasm thrown in for good measure. Kind of like you, SCC! Keep up the great work, both of you blogmasters!!

Unfortunately you guys are bearing the brunt of Daley's insistence that only the police have guns.

9-1-1 is known as Government sponsored Dial-a-Prayer...not your fault, of course. Our best bet is to be armed and defend ourselves, but that doesn't jive with Daley's agenda.

Just like all the flack over the VT incident. You can't predict when someone is going to flip out. The only way to have prevented that incident was for an armed citizen, upon seeing him pull out his guns and starting shooting, to shoot back. Heck, there were so many people in that building that even disarmed sheep could have overrun him.

We are being conditioned to be sheep and to rely on you guys. As such, we are the sheep and you are the sheep dogs. The wolf will get some of the sheep, but if it gets too many or if a sheep dog takes a sheep or two, watch out. Shepherd Daley's gonna skin you alive.

Talked to a dispatcher, and I thought morale in the department was in bad shape.

The term micromanager is brought to a whole new level on Madison.

If you think clout babies a bad here its even worse there.

Call takers take everything ie.
Woman having an asthma attack, doesnt want CFD to respond just wants the Police to come and remove the CAT from her apartment.

Durkin park would not have happened if J.C. was still the commander.
