More Bad News for SOS

  • The arrest report filed by two Chicago police officers claimed they searched Raymundo Martinez outside a Southwest Side bar because he threw a bottle of Corona down on the sidewalk when he saw them coming.

    The officers, members of the special operations section, saw a plastic bag that turned out to contain cocaine poking from his sleeve and arrested him, their report states.

    But cameras on the bar's ceiling and outside caught a very different scene that night in 2004 at Caballo's, 3748 W. 63rd St. Instead of two officers approaching a man drinking on a public street, the video shows more than two dozen police from the SOS unit raiding the bar and searching everyone, and arresting Martinez inside the bar.
And the worst part?
  • After taking on Martinez's case in 2004, defense lawyer Scott Levy said he waited to show the video to prosecutors until after the arresting officer testified in October 2004 about the arrest.

    "I asked the police officer at the preliminary hearing what happened, and it was blatantly obvious the police officer had fabricated the entire story," Levy said.
If true, slam dunk perjury and official misconduct.

Just read the article in the tribune! ATTENTION ATTENTION ALL OFFICERS PLEASE USE CAUTION, DO AS LITTLE AS POSSIBLE WE ARE IN A TIME WHERE LAWLESSNESS WILL RUN WILD! We have to just back each other up, and watch out for an enemy who hates the police scot levy! A quote in the article in the tribune "we waited 3 years because in chicago we had to bow down to the police", the bar owner states! WTF? Now what will we have more problems with jagoff gang members and the general public? the simple answer is yes! As for me I have been done working for awhile and shit like this sets it back even more! From now on any question a white shirt will be requested via the radio (so it is on tape) and then he/she can make the decision after all that is wht they are paid for! Get ready sgt your really going to be earning your money! Sorry but when the shit hits the fan we need your expert advice even if you have no clue but you are clouted in. This way sgt you can join in the lawsuit fun and I can say "My sgt told me to do it that way"

Down with SOS!

Finally, all of you 'holier than thou' cops who worked there and had the 'my shit does not stink' attitude towards the real hard working police, have gotten caught up in your BS antics. You thought that your "stories" of your arrests would never catch up to you - but now it has. Too many times I have heard you in the districts with BS stories they would not even put on The Shield!

Way to go...you have ruined the reputation of the good cops in 153, and in all the other districts, the ones who did not have mommy or daddy to call for us to get us a spot. Now it is so bad they are looking for people in Daily Bullentins to go there. Way to go...using an SOS term here - ASSHATS!

I hope those involved enjoy the stay at Club Fed with Jerry!!

Don't they know that ALL bars have videotape in? Was that good ol' C.S. front and center?

Whoever was in box 1 and 2 and whoever testified to this horseshit, say goodbye to your jobs and say hello to Official Misconduct and Perjury charges.

Don't these goofs know no matter how much dope you take off the streets, could be 50 kilos a night, there will always be more. Dope is a waste of time.

And now you have lost your livlihood and possibly freedom over a few bags of dope. Explain that to your wives and children when you go to prison.

And a big thank you to SOS for further sullying the reputation of all the honest coppers in this city. Shut this fucking unit down already and get rid of these assholes and their conveniently blind supervisors.

Fucking morons.

12 officers don't get together and do these unlawful searches of a whole bar unless it's ordered/sanctioned by a supervisor. The officer who wrote that false report will lose his gun and badge soon (deservedly so) if he already didn't turn it in today. But let's look at who ordered these searches. This whole thing is nonsense and terrible police work. And for what? A one or two bag dope arrest? Great job guys. Way to ruin our reputation some more. I've always been a huge supporter of SOS, Saturation and TRU and like when they hit our district. But now I would like to see them disbanded/reigned in.

Hello! Hello! is anybody out there? Can you say "Cameras everywhere"!!!
So is it possible that all of those Officers who were involved in this impromtu raid might have to generate some type of paper work to "Show what YOU know"!
You got to admit, we are our own worse enemy, nothing that Jesse,Jake,Sharpton can say, can make us look as bad, as what some of us might do.....We can talk about inept bosses, politically connected wannabes, over reacting media...........but it boils down to one thing, when one of us or a small group of us act in such a manner as to color us all in a broad brush....we all end up wearing the stains of their misdeeds and actions. Its a wonder that the media isn't demanding federal intervention into this department......its amazing with all that is happening that those who are still among us with issues, are still going around business as usual...are they that stupid or do they believe that they are so smart they can't be caught.

That way of thinking is why city cops don't trust police.I got 3 family members who are cops(1 a state trooper and 2 chicago)and the first thing they always tell me is to never mouth off at a Chicago Police Officer.Second is to always put my hands on the steering wheel during a traffic stop and turn off the car.And third,if your dirty be up front about it first and inform them of who you know by giving them there businesss card.I hear the horror stories......
A lot of cops are dirty and not to be trusted.But on the other side of that,they look at us the same way.Its a volatile situation and almost seems like the damage is too great to ever repair.

I am all for locking up the bad guys, even if it's some bullshit city charge, but I never understood why POs would not only risk their jobs, but their freedom, and commit a felony to arrest anyone. Isn't there enough bad guys out there to get without using such tactics?

There is no doubt in my mind that the bar was a gang hangout, or they were selling in there, or just simply full of shitheads, but in the day of cameras, the ACLU and a department that will not back you up, that raid was plain stupid.

This is where the numbers game, and quantity of quality has gotten the department. Even though these guys are responsible for what they did, I am sure they, like all the other "elite" teams, were pressured into getting their heads for the night. Their Sgt or Lt will look good and undoubtedly get promoted, while leaving them hang out to dry and sit in federal prison.

In light of recent developments and the oncoming firestorm of negative national publicity, there is absolutely no way for Daley to appoint an insider as the next Superintendent.

They've circled the wagons on the 5th floor at City Hall. CPD HQ is one big clusterfuck.

Daley's dilemma is compounded by the fact that qualified "outsiders" know that clout has finally come home to roost in the CPD.

Watch the mass exodus of the current political hack bosses combined with the "brain drain" of younger, talented officers.

In retrospect, the pre-O.W. Wilson "Summerdale Scandal" was mere child's play.

Ultimately, federal receivership is a given.

Suffice to say that among other things, the days that lie ahead will be most interesting.

Just tell the truth and let the chips fall where they lie. Why is there a need "to get somebody?" I'll never forget a principled cop who testified honorably---he didn't have a warrant and was going on a hunch. The case was tossed and I asked spoke to the officer after court and he told me that me client isn't an angel and we'll get him next time. Sure enough, three months later, I got hired again because the same officer observed a hand to hand delivery of narcotics. Always tell the truth.

At one time I worked in the 008th District. At the time I was there, that bar was a gang hangout. Gang meetings were also held in the same bar. You can say what you want about certain individuals from SOG, but they hit the right bar that night and locked up the right jagoff.

YES. IT RESULTS IN A CRIME CALLED PERJURY. Let's see, first, refer to terry vs ohio. Then, let's figure out how the whole episode is ON CAMERA, clearly showing the arrest report to be false. Which, by the way, leads to the fact that there is a court report out there documenting false testimony. So lets recap... inventive, sloppy police work, although well intentioned, leads eventually to perjury, which is a crime. Please figure this out soon, or you will be on the stand taking your OWN defense. Don't get me wrong, I'm glad they got dope off the street...but is it worth it? Clearly, given the state of things, we are not supossed to actively police. Oh, by the way, he made it more complicated with his writing. Stretching the truth is is one thing, but conjuring up a fantasy about how something happened is plain stupid. This is a prime example of an officer going to an elite unit although he HAS NO IDEA how to write paper, and the fact that a whole group of po's could look over the report before submission and say, "looks good to me" is scary as hell. I love working 99. I write a mover when I'm afraid of getting dumped, and a parker when I have to. Thats all this climate allows, so accept it. And don't give me the swagger "daa, you aint the real police!" cause there ARE NO MORE REAL POLICE. THOSE DAYS ARE G O N E It's 2007 people, wake up!!!

Its perjury and I would have hoped that ERic Olsen knew better. His father was a long-time sergeant from 11 or 12, previously from narcotics. His step-mom was on the job too. But he was another kid who got pushed too far too fast and didn't know how to protect himself or how to stand up and say No! when this kind of crap when down. His Dad has been retired so long that Dad probably can't help him out much and if the Defense Attorney did it the way the news says he did then Eric is done. 4 yrs on the job, maybe.

I watched the video several times. Here is what I didn't see.

Keep in mind that the camera out side only shows a very small part of the side walk in front of the door.

10 minutes before the so called "RAID" two guys from SOS ride past the Bar. They see Jagoff standing outside drinking his Corona. The Officers tell him to take his drink back inside the bar. Now the ilegal alien gangbanger POS says "FUCK YOU" and throws the bottle onto the side walk in the direction of the officers who were seated in their car. The POS runs back into the bar. This takes place out side of the cameras field of view.

The Officers who are street wise know not to go into that bar without backup! They call for the additional SOS units in the area. They orginize and execute a lawful entry into a licensed liquor establisment, to arrest the offender. (known gang and drug bar)

The officers enterd that bar in a calm profesional manner, not like storm troopers as the lawyers and press wnat every one to believe. I did not see one weapon drawn. I did not see one officer get ruff with anyone in that bar.

They arrested three persons from the bar and olny charged two.

Now they want to claim that the story and charges were fabricated. If thats the case why did they not fabricate a story and charge the third person arrested. Seems a little strange they only did that to the one guy this POS lawyer is repesenting!

All I have heard is that if is on camera your done! Now you are saying if it's not on camera you are done. So as usual if you are the Police they can have it both ways.

KEEP in mind this tape was played in court after the officer testified and The Cook County States Attorneys Office drops the charges.

I quess if the initial incident was not caught on tape it did not happen, Right?

What really pisses me off is this attorny a so called Officer of the court, released a video tape to the press that shows ABSOLUTLY NO POLICE MISCONDUCT!!!

But you guys are ready to throw these Officers under the bus based on what this scum bag lawyer and the press want you to believe.
And the sad part is the Dept. will base thier investigation on whats not seen on this useless tape.

One of these days it will be your turn to be thrown under the bus for some bullshit.

This is by far one of the most non incriminating videos against a Police officer I have ever seen. They conduted them selves like true professonals and they are still going to get fucked and the City will cowar and pay out big.

Unfucken believable!!!

"I asked the police officer at the preliminary hearing what happened, and it was blatantly obvious the police officer had fabricated the entire story," Levy said.

It is Levy's opinion that the police officer had fabricated the entire story. Where is the proof???

You no longer need proof in Cook County. If a scumbag lawyer thinks its not true, thats good enough, it did not happen no proof needed.

Cook County Court system is a joke!

LEVY said it so it must be true.

Slow your roll! No one so far has defended the bar, defended the doper, or applauded the lawyer. How about THINKING for a change? Instead of charging in to rock out with you cock out, try doing some POLICEWORK...perhaps do a BUY, get a snitch, get a warrant, then hit the place? Maybe even get the business license suspended? That, my friend is policeWORK. It takes time and effort, and the charges stick in court because it's done the right way. Any moreon can charge in and toss his weight around, shake people by their ankles till a baggie falls out. Do it the right way and you have no worries. But, what do I know...I never had a phone call to go anywhere, so my career ended before it even started...

At one time I worked in the 008th District. At the time I was there, that bar was a gang hangout. Gang meetings were also held in the same bar. You can say what you want about certain individuals from SOG, but they hit the right bar that night and locked up the right jagoff. Now the media (who also reads the blog) is making this a racial thing. Will this shit ever stop???

You dumb stupid fuck face, SOG was gone before you ever came on the job, it is SOS, and if you worked in eight and this bar was a bad spot you should have hit it yourself. Or were you afraid. If you were afraid you should have called FH from eight that dude is fearless.

All they had to do is take the time and do it correctly, license investigation, protective pat-downs of bar patrons for officer safety, this based on the information received of narcotics sales in the bar. Everyone in 008 knew about this bar selling, it wasn't new. Oh well, too late now.

There are a lot of police officers out there who DO POLICE WORK as you said, but do it legally. It doesn't take a college educated person to see that what they did was a crime, violated people's civil rights, and didn't follow department orders. If you can't follow the law and the orders - DON"T DO THIS JOB!!! We don't need people like you. Good police work is working a case, building a case and getting the bad guy legally and in a way that his case will not be thrown out of court and a case against you brought to court.

I hope you never work for me!! Don't make excuses for officers who are out here breaking the law - it only makes our jobs a whole lot more difficult. Perjury, official misconduct and lack of respect for themselves is what these officers showed the public. Once again - THANK YOU!! Morons!!

To: "Pissed off" 12:02 A.M. Poster.


In essence, as a zealous, hardworking, no clout officer, I agree SOMEWHAT with you..and also am pissed off.

But, I am smart enough to realize that this job has changed & not for the better!

It was good police work up until they got lazy, cut corners, and left out IMPORTANT details.

Put it all in the narrative of the GOCR. I know there are those who will give me the "well, Judge it is a summation of events and not all inclusive..blah,blah,blah"

My point is if the officer had simply said we observed offender do this (offenders action)..then we called for ample back-up and after 10 minutes performed a licensed premise check (our actions)which led to arrest (outcome)..NO PROBLEMS.

But they left a pretty "large hole" in the case report (information wise) that 4 years later the Shitbirds attorney and the media "are driving a mack truck through."

Now it looks as though it is some kind of illegal conduct or cover up. I would have also incuded the licensed premise info and had the W/C sign off.

Result would be:
*gang-banger "off the street"
*dope "off the street"
*liquor commission hearings for bar owner.
*O.T. for A/O.

Outcome:

*Case probably thrown out anyway, but who gives a shit.
*You did your job in good faith and probably wouldn't be enduring a "shitstorm" now!

**********************************

I am not wanting to second guess the actions of the SOS guys. I am simply responding to the controversy now being reported in all the media outlets.We all know that they will put their "unique spin" on it also, to make it look far worse than it is.

All working officer's have "stepped on their dicks" at one time or another in their careers (myself included.)But the lesson here is to learn from your mistakes and the mistakes of other officers.
***********************************

The Bottom line is..It is about self-preservation..TODAY is not the day to be proactive. Wait until the pendulum swings back in our favor. For now be reactive and that's all.

Or you too may find yourself at "club fed!"

Were you there? I saying NO to all of those. How long did asshole hold the tape...oh yeah thats right, a long ass time. He has to present any and all evidence to the state and the state likewise before the trial so good luck using it. Cant hold back and use it as a trump card, sorry, dont work like that. Another jag sitting back and thinking he knows how to police. Do us a favor, stick with writing your parkers, reports or whatever useless thing you do cause u really dont know shit dumbass. You said it doesnt take a college educated person to believe what happened was a crime, but it takes a moron with a half a brain like you to believe the news, a piece of shit lawyer and a bar full of illegal gun/coke toting gangbangers. You dont need PERMISSION to search the bar dumbass! Its called a premise check and everyone inside is fair game! Till asshole lawyer throws out the "other" views on tape and shows otherwise, I'll back my brothers in BLUE before you ever will.

Another big problem is that felony review (state's attorney's office) plays judge and jury with approving our charges leaving us in a position that makes us feel like we have to have an airtight case to even call them.
Instead of arresting the offender and charging him for say uuw but you had to go back and pick up the gun b/c you were chasing the a-hole, they want you to lie and say you stopped the chase, picked up the gun then continued chasing otherwise they'll never approve the charges. Like in the span of a minute someone else might have run by and tossed the same kind of gun in the same place, get real. They should not be judging that, that's for the jury to decide. I think that the fel review is the major prob here and that's why paper gets written certain ways. Just to make sure the charges are approved. The change needs to start there.

A licensed establishment is a public place. The police are allowed to enter any public place without a warrant. Who says it did not happen the way the officers wrote the report? The offender could have been to the left of the video camera's exterior view. Then they call for backup to search the bar. This happened in 2004. EO is still assigned to SOS. So did the department know for three years that this guy committed purjury and never filed criminal or administrative charges against him? I doubt it. They can't prove purjury unless the report says the offender was standing directly in front of the bar's front door. That's the only exterior video angle shown. What happened after the arrest is irrelevant.

I agree with post, all these fellow officer's going by a video and the ramblings of a suckhole attorney looking to get paid. I dont know the testimony in court, or if the sos guys called in a disturbance at the bar. If in fact they called for assist units with a Premise Check that is fine.The attorney stated that the officers didnt have a warrant, but the bar is a licensed business in Chicago. No need for a warrant to enter or check around.You must also check and make sure also licenses are current.As far as searching the patrons, you can ask for ID's and due to the cicumstances of the large crowd a protective pat down can be justified. I saw nothing wrong in the video but if they testified to something totaly different that the video they might have problems. Just hope a supervisor was notified of the premise check. Until something alse comes out back the officers whether sos or not until convicted by a jury of twelve.

Yes, because everyone has the time and resources to do surveillence, search warrants and this that and the other. Being that you're either held in the DOC, held to ridiculous missions, or doing some other complete nonsense. And since we all know that one search warrant or controlled buy would end the problem instantly and for all time. But thank you so very much for your keen observations oh wise one.

And with Ryan, he is playing the sh*thed-esque type of maneuver by continuing appeal after appeal to save his ass. He appealed once and lost-wa wa wa. Now he is trying another. (will lose again :(

Enough, Enough, Enough. When are you piece of shit coppers going to stop gloating when another copper fucks up. Instead of jumping up and down and talking shit about all the coppers that work in S.O.S. why don't you just shut your mouths and do your job. Oh yea, I forgot you don't do that anymore because your getting back at the MAN. Well guess what, being a lazy piece a shit doesn't just show your true colors, but it puts other coppers and even worse our families in danger.

I took this job to put the bad guy in prison so that he doesn't have a chance to harm my fellow officers, myself, and most importantly my family. So, when you sit there on your fat, and yes I mean fat, ass and do nothing you are simply showing what a useless human being you actually are.

No, you were never the "real police," and no you never made a difference. If you are a lazy piece of shit w/ an ass the size of the back of the squad, then you have always been a lazy piece of shit. Your ass has simply just grown from sitting in a squad car so long.

So for all of you that cheer when another copper gets in trouble and use that as an excuse for your laziness, do me a favor. Better yet do my family a favor becuase they live in this city....MOVE THE FUCK ON....At least when you quit or retire there is another opening and maybe just maybe somebody will fill your position who gives a damn about this country, state, and city we live in!!!!

George had an army of lawyers from Winston and Strawn at $800 an hour each. Scooter, undoubtedly, had a similarly prestigious firm defending him. Even if Jerry and the other had stolen millions it is unlikely that they could afford the sort of fees and asociated costs we can anticipate in this type of defense. Remember, the important thing is not how rich you are, but that the resources of the U.S. government are almost inexaustable on this sort of issue. Also, knowing some of the AUSAs personally I would say that beyond a simple compensation issue, what you have here are people that are crusaders-people that could have made 160,000 a year to start at a law firm but instead chose to serve their country and fight crime. They believe.

There is case law in this state that clearly establishes official misconduct charges based on violations of your department policies alones. There is no need for a statutory crime to have been committed, just violation of your department policy. Of course, the policy must have been established pursuant to statutory authorization-based on a statute in other words. See you in Court! Cheers!!!!

He had nothing to do with the scandal.

9/29/2007 03:12:00 AM

I sit hear and still mourn the loss of my friend and partner. I had the pleasure of working with Jose up until his untimely death. He got to SOS in 04 and went to work on the team that I still work on, we never worked directly with any of the charged officers. As a matter of fact we never got one CR number for any of the work we did. And some good work I might add. He was robbed and killed by a robbery crew working in that area, this is fact! The area 4 det's have done a great job trying to bring these SOB's to justice and have met resistance from the ASA's as far as the CIRCUMSTANTIAL evidence as they put it.

I'll never forget getting woken up moments after he was shot by my brother in law. He drove me to county hospital and I was the first guy there from my team. I was met by an officer that was on scene, who is a friend of mine, he gave me Jose's gun and star. I held onto that star up until I was ordered to turn it over, the hardest thing I've ever had to do because all I wanted to do was take it and hold it.

I won't go on, its hard enough to share those thoughts with you.

All I can say is this, Jose was and always will be a great police officer. I learned an incredible amount in the short time that I was his partner. Anyone that wears star number 13088 should be honored!

He had nothing, absolutely nothing to do with any of the BS that surrounds anyone involved with the indictments or any other SOS scandal, he was above that.

All I ask of you is that you get home safe and never ever let your guard down.

BUT...these, of course, are college educated police officers who allow others to dictate this inappropriate behavior for them.

I do not have a college education, am a sgt. have been on the job 23 years and never have I allowed my judgment to be lowered or my integrity to be taken away because another person wanted to do something in front of me. It is not done. I have a reputation and therefore, people know what can and cannot be done in front of me. Stop blaming the supervisors for bad behavior by college educated officers. The same amount of blame goes to both. Unless of course, their brains were sucked out before they went to SOS.

Yes, because everyone has the time and resources to do surveillence, search warrants and this that and the other. Being that you're either held in the DOC, held to ridiculous missions, or doing some other complete nonsense.

"You dont need PERMISSION to search the bar dumbass! Its called a premise check and everyone inside is fair game!"

You must be in SOS wearing your hoodie and doing the same type of nonsense you see on the tape. Just because you enter a bar doesn't give you carte blanche to go in and search everyone. I'm still waiting for the post about the supreme court case and recovering dope during a pat down search, because you at least need to articulate reasonable suspicion, something these guys did not bother to do. If what was said was true, it is pure laziness and sloppy police work that will jam these guys up. People ask where the supervisors were at, the Sgt on scene, who was also the arresting officer, can be seen on the tape, wearing a black jacket over the uniform. What kind of example are these guys setting? I still have no idea how Zoolander is even on this job let alone a sergeant. I cannot understand how someone sponsored this "Sgt" for promotion, I bet they don't come forward and claim responsibility (but we know who you are). Which leads to the real problem with SOS and the entire department. The lack of competent leadership and management in this department is the main root of all of the problems we are currently having. When you place people in positions because of their political connections or who they know and not based on their ability it is no wonder that an entire unit is running around with no accountability, the supervisors thay have in place are in over their heads and everyone is clouted up so nobody will call anyone on anything for fear of getting dumped (or worse). The feds are coming clowns, and a consent decree is the only thing that is going to weed out the bullshit that happens in this department on a day to day basis.

Just because the video doesn't show what is in the case report means crap. The camera shows only a small outdoor area.

Be careful with plain touch seizures. You may not manipulate the object to determine what it is. If, while frisking a suspect for weapons, you detect an object that is not a weapon, you may seize it if your experience and sense of touch make it "immediately apparent" to you that the object is contraband or evidence of a crime.

For example, you see a person leaving an apartment building where you know crack cocaine has recently been sold. In patting him down you feel a small lump in his pocket. You can tell it is not a gun or other weapon but cannot immediately identify it. You proceed to squeeze it and move it around with your fingers while leaving in in the pocket. You conclude it is crack cocaine and remove it from his pocket and confirm your suspicion. No good.

Another example. You see two men exiting a vehicle and they flee upon seeing you. You know one of the guys from a previous drug pinch and see him with his hand holding his crotch area as he's running. You catch him and do a pat down and feel a pill bottle in his underwear. You recover it and find crack. It's good. It was immediately apparent during the pat down that it was a pill bottle. That, combined with the suspect fleeing, holding his crotch, and you're having previously pinched him for narcotics, gave you plenty of probable cause that the pill bottle contained contraband.

When using plain touch, you need more than reasonable suspicion, you need probable cause.

Just curious. It seems for the most part people with less than 10 years on the job really have never learned how to do real police work. Or maybe it is just that the don't want to. Is police work below the new college educated officer? Not sure how they feel, but I do know that 10 years from now this department is going to be in shambles (worse than right now) and I am glad I won't be part of it.

Just curious. It seems for the most part people with less than 10 years on the job really have never learned how to do real police work. Or maybe it is just that the don't want to. Is police work below the new college educated officer? Not sure how they feel, but I do know that 10 years from now this department is going to be in shambles (worse than right now) and I am glad I won't be part of it. If you have something to say, say it and back it up with fact, not vulgarity and name calling - that's how grammar school kids express themselves. GROW UP

2 hour lunches? Maybe when you were on tact in the good ole days...I have 14 years on and 9 on tact. I think I know the ole days and the new. I never had a 2 hour lunch. Maybe you and your crew enjoyed such pleasures. Talking and typing lies in grammar school. Good day college hater.
P.S. I have no college
