Recruit Fired

We've been asked to address this issue in numerous comment sections and more than a few e-mails. From the Sun Times:
  • A man training to be a Chicago Police officer claims he was terminated from the Chicago Police Academy because he was Polish and "looked terrible."

    Peter J. Palka is suing the Chicago Police Department and Matthew Tobias, assistant deputy superintendent of the police academy, alleging he was kicked out of the academy this year because of his race and nationality.

    Palka was five months into his training at the academy when he went to school early on Jan. 25 for some "extra help with firearms," a lawsuit filed Friday in U.S. District Court says.

The article goes on to print the allegations contained in the lawsuit, including foul language, disobedience of a direct order and disparaging remarks made about the plaintiff's ethnic background.

First up, for the benefit of our civilian readers, recruits at the Academy are termed as "at-will" employees. That means for pretty much the entire first year of their careers, they can be terminated without cause for just about anything. The Academy, and by extension, the City do not owe them an explanation, cause or reason for termination.

That's some pretty heavy consequences going into a new job. You might leave a different life track to join the CPD and the second you screw up, the walls come down. And truthfully, that's probably how it should be. It makes you give serious consideration to the consequences of your actions, or lack of actions as demonstrated on the store video where a couple of Probationary Police Officers were caught on camera fleeing in the face of an armed subject. They became among the first fired for cowardice.

That being said, we have a hard time believing that in this day and age, there would be any boss anywhere who would express him or her self to a recruit in the terms listed in the paper, especially the slurs upon ethnic heritage. It was wrong when it was against blacks, it was wrong when it was against hispanics, and it'd be wrong if the pendulum swung completely the other direction, too.

SCC what u think?
Mayor trying to get his way by
saying that the opposition by Ald Reilly to Children’s Museum being built in Grant Park is racist. A would be brilliant move by Daley.

It’s funny, as Homer Simpson would say, because it’s true. Or nearly. O’Neill is lobbying overtime to build a new Chicago Children’s Museum in Grant Park—the same Grant Park that, a century ago, A. Montgomery Ward fought a long, bruising, ultimately successful battle over. Ward was defending the 1836 mandate to keep Chicago’s lakefront public ground, “a common to remain forever open, clear and free of any buildings, or other obstruction whatever.”

The Children’s Museum is but the latest in a long procession of hustles seeking to circumvent that mandate. It’s looking to replace free access to open land with new construction and stiff admission charges, and Bob O’Neill is doing his part to keep those who don’t think it’s a very good idea safely on the sidelines

From the reports in the media, it appears that he had trouble qualifying on the range. He was supposed to read the manual and report to the range. Evidently he did not do that.

Now, they bend over backwards to get these people out of there and on the street. If you do not do the things your are supposed to do; especially if they are giving you some remedial assistence, then there is no beef. To bad. You lose.

I agree that no one would be so dumb, especially Tobias, to make ethnic statements. SOunds to me like some laying lawyer speak.

This is also a non issue. Recruits have no rights. We didn't when we were and the same holds true today. You get fired, to bad. Period.

IT MATTERS BY EACH SUPERVISOR ON HOW THEY RUN THERE DEPT. WE CAN ALL COME TO DIFFERENT CONCLUSIONS BUT WE WERE NOT THERE AT THAT POLICE ACADEMY. SOMETIMES THAT BRASS GETS TO A PERSONS HEAD AND THEY SAY HE IS AN AT WILL EMPLOYEE. WE DONT NEED TO EXPLAIN ARE ACTIONS FOR ARE DECISION. BUT BY READING THE ARTICLE FOR A MANUAL THE KID GETS CANNED AND HE WAS FORCED TO WRITE OUT THE MANUAL. THATS REAL SMART SUPERVISOR TO DO THAT. WHEN READING OTHER BLOGS IT LOOKS LIKE HE WAS NOT THE ONLY POLISH RECRUIT THAT GOT DISMISSED FROM THE ACADEMY. DOES THE POLICE ACADEMY HAVE SOME SORT OF BOARD TO DETERMINE THE OUTCOME OR IS IT ONLY ADS TOBIAS'S CALL TO GET RID OF AN RECRUIT. BUT SOMEBODY HAS TO REVIEW ALL OF THE PEOPLE THAT HAVE BEEN FIRED BECAUSE SOMETHING WILL HAVE TO COME UP TO SEE SOME SORT OF PATTERN AND WHAT KIND OF LAWSUITS AND COMPLAINTS THAT HAVE BEEN FILED AGAINST THE ACADEMY AND ITS STAFF AND THE ADS. BUT THIS CASE WILL OPEN UP A WHOLE CAN OF WARMS! THANKS SECOND CITY COP FOR ADDRESSING ALL CONCERNS.

I was in the same class as this guy. He was a complete moron. This was just the final screw-up of many for this idiot. He also isn't being honest, or at least telling the whole story of why he was fired. It sounds bad but pretty much the entire class breathed a sigh of relief when he got canned. He couldn't do anything right, plus he was lazy as hell. The idea of him running around the city with a star and a gun was horrifying. He wasn't the only Polish or white guy in the class and the rest of us made it through. Go back to your security job at the movie theatre in Rosemont Palka!

Hey SCC... You seem to be pretty knowledgable. Question?

How do i as a citizen of the city of chicago go about to find out the results of the Sgts test. (or any test)

I know that this is a civil service rank and that the test is done with taxpayer money.

Since the FOP does not post the results...do you think that i could hire an attorney to get the results via the Freedom of Information Act?

Just wondering if anyone tried this. Since the results should be posted like all of the suburbs do.

Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks

"Palka was five months into his training at the academy when he went to school early on Jan. 25 for some "extra help with firearms,"

O.K. So, first point about the kid is that after 5/6 of his police training is over (as he approaches graduation and meeting civilians on the streets), he still can't shoot straight, and has to go to work early for remedial shooting work. That's one fucked up would be cop. Probably a good thing that he got tossed. I don't want to be anywhere near him in a shooting situation. Not even counting the innocent civilians he'd kill, how many cops would he take down with him.

And anyone here who is really a Chicago cop knows our shooting standards ain't all that difficult.

Ok, maybe i'm tired because i haven't slept, but even if Tobias said the following...
"You look terrible. We don't need people like you. Get the hell out of my office."

to me it doesn't necessarily imply that he was referring to the recruit's race/nationality.

you look terrible = could be an observation at made at that time of the recruit's uniform/ appearance. he literally looked terrible.

we don't need people like you = "like you" = lazy, disobeying, possibly sloppy recruit

get the hell out of my office = self explanatory. if he needed more explanation, then maybe he deserved to get fired, no question.

am i mising something?

The Recruit was fired becasue he had failed the State Firearms Qualification Twice already. The "extra help" with firearms mentioned in the paper was a 10 Hour Supportive class prior to his making a third and final attempt at the qualification. Even though he had failed twice, he readily admitted to having never read the Manual that the Range Staff provided on day one of his training. When the ADS got word of this, combined with the fact that this Recruit had had trouble in several other areas of the Academy, including following orders, the ADS decided to cut his losses and get rid of this guy.
If you really want a story, do some digging and find out why this guy's father took a very sudden and unplanned early retirement from County. You'll find that some very inappropriate phone calls were placed from the father's office phone regarding the children of certain Academy members following the firing.

The Department traditionally is VERY, VERY cautious when it comes to reasons for firing recruits. They really have to be a Fuck-up, or completely inept. I am not going to hide the fact that MOST of the "off the boat" Polish that I know on this job are self serving, arrogant assholes who have little or no regard for anyones success or acclaims except there own. Maybe someone from Unit 124 can give a little insight as to the person we are speaking of? Maybe he was a Liability to everyone he would work with on the street. Maybe he turned around on the range, weapon in hand and therefore put all lives in danger. maybe he was a smelly stinking slob. Maybe he had the IQ of a 2 year old. Whatever the case, we must know if the case against the Department is one of merited comlaint, or a result of one's Ego demanding the city employ him because he is Polish, or whatever. Either way, as far as the slurs go, If you can't handle a little Bull Shit about your ethnicity, you have no business being on the job. We all get it, there are no exceptions. I believe that if one feels he has to defend a stereotype, he obviously puts merit to it.

Is it possible he desrved to be terminated?

When I was in the academy, more than a few recruits should have been let go.

One was fired on furlough before we hit the districts. A blessing.

Of those who should have been weeded out:

One is a Sgt.
One is Firefighter/driving a boss
One is in jail
One sleeps on Midnights
Two quit.
Of the other 24 or so....
Maybe 15 are earning their keep.
At least two are a major liability to the city, and a few can't enforce the rules at home with their own kids, let alone enforce the law to the general public.

Let's face it.... out of a 30 recruit homeroom, maybe 5 are good police persons. The rest are gadflies.

Now go get your shinebox

Hey I'm polish and I've been on this job for 23 years, I guess I just slipped through the cracks of all those racist bosses. But the simple fact remains, if you can't pass the state qualification on your firearm the first time you SHOULD be fired regardless of who you are, what race you are, what sex you are, etc. etc. That test is designed so a blind guy with 4 thumbs and shoots with his foot can pass it.

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I once locked up a polish guy for a DUI and ‘fleeing and eluding’. I pursued him for about 2 miles before he got stuck in traffic.

His attorney, the great lady’s man former Police Superintendent RICHARD BRZECZEK agued that in his country the police hold up some sort of sign to order vehicles to pull over. The ‘fleeing and eluding’ charge was dropped. I guess the fact that you have to know the driving laws in Illinois doesn’t make a difference if you pay $3000 to a connected attorney in Crook County.

Back in 1970 I took the exam for the CPD. I scored very high on the list, and thought I had the world by the tail. Before I had a chance to get into the Academy, I got in a bunch of trouble, and ended up in the House of Correction. To get out of there, I had to go into a 2 year drug rehab program. I took me 5 years to finish the program. Slow learner, huh? I eventually left my home city that I love so much, Chicago. I was able to get a vocation as a plumber, marry, have two wonderful kids, and get ordained as a Catholic Deacon. Now, in my later years as I wait for the end, I am grateful that it was ciscovered, by others, way before I realized it, that I would have been the world's worst officer. I would probably have been imprisoned, for a longer time than I was, or have gotten some one hurt, or worse. There are just some people who should not be the police, and I was one of them.

Thank you officers for all that you do. Keep your standards high. Please be assured of our prayers, and pray for us too.

that kid was a walking nightmare from day 1. made racist remarks/jokes to me within the first few days at the academy. Spent countless time in front-lean & rest and doing to-froms for pissing off multiple instructors. He was an idiot, already a dog-ass before even graduting the academy. he was a total slob, it is possible the "you look like shit" comment referred to him being out of shape and not wearing his uniform properly.

he also could not shoot whatsoever and failed the qualifications exam at least once, possibly twice, and lied to the range instructors about modifying his weapon.

getting this guy out before becoming sworn was one of the smartest things this department ever did, it's just a total shame they did not also fire the screw-up from his sister class, who has already been booted from her first district of assignment before even completing her training cycles. if you can believe it, she was even worse than he was, and (i am not exaggerating here)utterly terrifying to observe in scenario training.

the idea that one's Polish ethnicity would harm one's ability to be graduated from the academy is a joke. IF anything having a Polish background in the current political climate of Chicago is helpful. Since the early 90's Chicago has experienced a huge influx of Poles. Not hard to imagine a time in the not so distant future when Poles might become the department's new Irish.

Out of my recruit class of maybe 30, at least 2 are Captains, about 6 are Lts., 11 are Sgts., several more are detectives, and only a handful still on the job are P.O.'s. 1 was fired and 1 has died. Being the superior being that I was when I came on, I looked around the room at all of the women, the blacks, the hispanics, and the lame, and decided that it was a waste of my time to get to know most of them because at least 50% had no business being the police. I guess I'm glad to say that I was wrong then and may of you are wrong now. This guy may have been unfit and if so, I applaud Tobias as its about time that somebody at the Academy was stopping these incompetents before they hit the Districts. But who knows. . . I'm out of the fortune telling business.

If the recruit cannot pass the state firearms qualification, after the third try and something like 16 hours of one on one training, they are AUTOMATICALLY terminated. They cannot be certified by the state. He can sue all he wants, but he won't get hired back. All the other stuff is just window washing and will probably come out to be totally false.
It must be a SLOW news day for this to be in the news at all, it is totally routine.

You are kind of wrong, the recruits are AT WILL employees and CAN be fired for any reason. There are procedures to be followed when terminating a recruit. As long as they are followed, the firing will stand up in court.
MOST of the recruits who have been fired have gone to court to sue, and NONE have been rehired. As I said, as long as the procedures - required by either law or court case precedence - are followed, the termination will stick.
Now, I can't tell you whether or not the proper procedures were followed...

Ok, maybe i'm tired because i haven't slept, but even if Tobias said the following...
"You look terrible. We don't need people like you. Get the hell out of my office."

to me it doesn't necessarily imply that he was referring to the recruit's race/nationality.

you look terrible = could be an observation at made at that time of the recruit's uniform/ appearance. he literally looked terrible.

we don't need people like you = "like you" = lazy, disobeying, possibly sloppy recruit

get the hell out of my office = self explanatory. if he needed more explanation, then maybe he deserved to get fired, no question.

am i mising something?

9/19/2007 06:46:00


NO you aren't missing anything, I am sure whatever was allegedly said to the recruit, it won't negate the simple bottom line, no pass the shooting, no work at the dept... end of story...bye bye
He isn't the first to be terminated for failing the shooting (and/or the academic ) and he won't be the last.

The homeroom officers keep files on all the recruits to document issues. The Department can fire them at will, but to cover it's ass the city shows a paper trail. Prior to Tobias it didn't matter how f**ked up a recruit was, it seemed that the previous bosses compared a messed up recruit with the most f**ked-up officer they knew on the job. So it was basically he's screwed up but we have worse on the street. At least Tobias is holding them to a standard.

Retards that passed you through the academy. Try working at academy sometime. Very hard to fire a recruit unless there is proper documentation. At least with Tobias we can actually fire recruits. before, everyone passed. Now we have actual standards that are enforced. Why do FTO's pass every recruit during field training? When was the last time a FTO refused to pass a recruit during field training? Do not blame academy for everything.

I refused to certify two recruits, went through all the hoops at the Training Division, had a hearing, everything.

They gave them one more chance. One got fired within a year for pissing hot, the other is a midnight officer that works 99 most nights as everyone refuses to work with him. He's a walking CR number and a supervisor's nightmare.

As they say the apple doesnt fall far from the tree....this guys father was the BIGGEST A-HOLE on the County dole...he got involved in the firing, calls made aplenty, Tobias wouldnt back down, then this MORON started making inquiries and calls about Tobias' family (all from a county phone...thank the Lord for his stupidity)

yeah the comment on the county phone is very funny! you got to be stupid to use that phone cuz the feds listen to that phone all the time. all calls are monitored and every employee knows that. this blog makes me laugh.
