More Heroism

  • Police rescued residents, including an elderly woman, from a burning South Side home Wednesday night.
  • Officers were en route to an unrelated call about 9:30 p.m. Wednesday when they noticed smoke and flames coming out of a residence in the 3600 block of South Calumet Avenue, police News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said.
  • The officers alerted residents that the building, 3622 S. Calumet Ave., was on fire, Greer said. The officers then assisted in the rescue of the residents, including carrying an elderly woman safely outside.
Another routine act of heroism by people who do it every day.

Not to diminish any of these stories of bravery,heroism and duty; but this is the AVERAGE day in the life of any copper.

The reality is that the media and citizens, rarely is ever realize it or acknowledge it.

A news release from the law firm Loevy & Loevy said the officers "allegedly lined up Meesak and Vazquez against a fence and punched them repeatedly even though they offered no resistance." The release also said Butko was thrown against a parked car and punched repeatedly despite not offering resistance.

CHICAGO -- A new report indicates that allegations of political patronage in some complaints filed with a hiring monitor show "devastating" effects on Cook County workers.

Julia Nowicki was appointed last fall to monitor county hiring practices.

In a report filed in federal court Wednesday, she said 119 former and current county employees have filed claims alleging they were politically discriminated against during the last three years.

She said she hasn't investigated all the claims and can't say whether they're accurate.

But she said if what the employees say is true, patronage is having a significant negative effect on the workers.

About half of the complaints came from the county health system and allege that politically-connected employees were given promotions and overtime over employees without connections.

Contact Cards have always been a very fine line in relation to civil rights litigation. Read the G.O.'s and protect yourself. As evidenced by Monique Bond's comments the City of Chicago will hang you out when the lawsuits and CR#'s come in naming you as the accussed.

Yet,every watch commander will be demanding two or more contact cards per car at roll call. As always,get the numbers and make us look good. Who ends up in trouble and in court? You, the patrolman.

Bloomberg Speaks Out About 'Immobilized' America
The NYC Mayor's First Network Interview Since Leaving the Republican Party

In his first network interview since leaving the Republican Party in June, New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg told ABC's Robin Roberts that America is in a dire state.

"We have too much crime on the streets," he said on "Good Morning America." "People are getting killed throughout the country. We have an education system that's not educating everybody. That's detrimental to the whole country, including the people who are left behind."

It is a shame that there are PO's out there who are too immature to make worthwhile contributions to these blogs and effect positive dialogue and change. This are the same whiners who continuously bitch about the CPD and prefer to write about some copper or boss without validity.

Thank You for the forum and the work necessary to get ur done

Nifong Admits: No Crime in Lacrosse Case

DURHAM, N.C.- It took three tries for disgraced former prosecutor Mike Nifong to utter the words that three Duke lacrosse players falsely accused of rape were determined to hear him say.

On Thursday, more than 16 months after beginning a disastrous prosecution of the former players, Nifong offered a complete and unqualified apology. After two rebuffed attempts to express remorse for his mishandling of the case, Nifong acknowledged there is "no credible evidence" to support allegations the men attacked a stripper during a team party last year.

NBCU to Launch The Steve Wilkos Show; Announces Clearances

NBC Universal is about to confirm the sale of a fall 2007 first-run talk show hosted by Steve Wilkos, the director of security on The Jerry Springer Show, to affiliates within the Sinclair and Tribune station groups.

Initial clearance percentages are expected at approximately 55 percent of the country. Wilkos, a former marine and police officer, has expanded his role in recent years on the veteran Springer daily hour, including recent episodes themed “Steve to the Rescue,” which feature him on location offering advice to troubled individuals.

Official Clearances for NBCU’s The Steve Wilkos Show

NBC Universal has announced clearances for the new fall 2007 first-run hour-long talk show hosted by Jerry Springer’s head of security, Steve Wilkos, on the Tribune and Sinclair stations. Deals include Tribune’s WPIX/New York, KTLA/Los Angeles, WGN/Chicago and WPHL/Philadelphia; and Sinclair stations WTTA/Tampa, WPGH/Pittsburgh, WNUV/Baltimore and WLFL/Raleigh.

"It is truly incredible that I first came to work part-time with Jerry Springer some 14 years ago and here I am now getting my own show," said Steve Wilkos. "I believe my Marine training of what is right and what is wrong and the street smarts I picked up as a police officer will assist me in helping my guests get through the hard times they face each day."

Well if Steve is indicative of the Marines on the CPD. Then you Jarheads are Sorely lacking.

Steve was a do nothing,
