Roll Out the Dead Horse

Sneed just can't stop herself, but this time, it's amusing:
  • Mayor Daley . . . what is going on?

    • • Translation: Dana Starks, the Chicago Police Department's interim superintendent appointed by Mayor Daley -- who is still minus FBI clearance to deal with highly sensitive federal info and who claimed the FBI lost two previous clearance applications -- is at it again.

    • • The shocker: Sneed hears Starks dispatched orders Monday via e-mail to his five top deputy superintendents restraining them from talking to outside agencies without his permission!

    "What the hell is this all about?" said a top source.

    • • The buckshot: "Why in the world would Starks stop his men from performing their duties without running to him first for permission? The deputy superintendents have power over policy and their people already. They need to talk to the Cook County state's attorney's office, the U.S. attorney's office, the FBI and DEA and other federal agencies . . . and so do the police commanders under them!

    "This is madness."

    • • The downshot: The Starks e-mail stated: "Prior to anyone requesting a meeting outside the department the undersigned (Starks) will be notified. Any questions regarding policy or deployment is the responsibility of the undersigned."

Evidently, Starks was out of the loop for so long, he's swung completely the other direction. Every single decision, every single iota of information, no matter how insignificant, must now pass through the filter that is Interim Superintendent Starks.

In reality, we're sure this order will be clarified after being widely ignored. The Department would cease to function if every time single time an ADS had to get written permission to communicate with outside agencies, especially in a capacity that has already been established by past practices.

But Sneed just can't help herself.

IF I had to guess.........

I would think that Cline had to eat Starks. Over time, Ray Charles could see that Starks was a bumbling idiot.
[There has been conflict between Starks vs. Mauer over the years]
Cline did NOT want to leave HIS beloved police dept. to this mutt so he simply fed Sneed [the truth] about Starks so as to eliminate him from the running, through Sneeds truthful reporting.
C'mon now, IF the FBI really trusted him, they would have given him the appropriate clearance looooong ago.
Apparently they know more than they can say.
God help us all!!!!!!!!

Ol vet!

That order is a complete non event. No one is supposed to deal with outside agencies without notifying the superintendents office, even a DSupt. represents the department when dealing with outside agencies, and any contact should be part of a notification to the supe, whoever is making a stink about it is doing just that, much ado about nothing, and Sneed is just biting into it - for whatever silliness she thinks will result.

D.S. IS AN IDIOT! And as the Rumor stands, he Lied on his FBI application, and that's why they'll never give him clearance, and that's why Phil Cline took all his responsibilities away from him and assigned them to another deputy because he embarrassed the dept.

This is not about Sneed being a friend of Cline. That's all bullshit.

As far as the FBI? They've either been very classy in handling this situation without further emabarrasing the Green Aligator shoe wearing D.S., or this might just be G-14 Classified!

Borat for Superintendent. Cause it doesnt really matter. Anyone would be Better, and better qualified than what we have now! We're doomed!

Would that order require the ADS to contact Starks prior to dealing with the SA office for overrides? What about dealing with a suburban department regarding an event which occurs on the border?

I would hope that the Federal government stops giving this illegal-city funds because it's Mayor is sanctioning illegal activities by harboring felons and under-cutting the 9/11 Commission.

Mr. Chertoff, is the increased likelihood of a terrorists attack reason to give taxpayers dollars to cities that ignore federal laws, which increases the probabilities on them taking place?


Let's see, Mayor vs Interim Superintendent...Hmmmm.

First, Sneed has had contacts in the Department before Cline. She had made friends with many people as they rose through the ranks and she would occasionaly attend promotion and retirement parties.
Not all of her friends were bosses either.

Second, Dana was put in to appease the Southside Black political block. He was told to keep a low profile and get the paycheck. Of course he could not do that. He made a power play by stabbing everyone under him and Cline in the back; not once, but numerous times.

Dana's lack of FBI clearances will not keep him from the top spot. His total incompetency will.

Security clearance costs about 70G, thats why the department was asking for POs with security clearances awhile back in the daily bulletin. Its obviously cheaper if the PO already has one. The depart gets access to fed databases only for POs with a clearance. Thats why they grabbed up POs with security clearances to work in the DOC and Fusion Center. Doesn't really matter if the Sup has a clearance or not, necessary info will be received and cleared for dissemination to the Department as necessary.

I'm not a Starks fan, but can you say Department Policy or General Order? Before Sneed begins to give her opinion why doesn't the idiot that is feeding her this information take the time to explain our department policy as it is written.

I don't see why our department is not in an uproar over this. Since when did we allow the media to become our judge and jury, or better yet, have any impact on this department and the decisions that are made.

Today this idiotic sexual starved and confused commentator is friend to the Starks haters and Cline lovers, but tomorrow, she will be the same reporter talking about police brutality and how the police need to be sanctioned, sued and fit to be tied.

Use your brain you sorry excuse for a Deputy Superintendent. Why would you stoop that low and pass internal information on, regardless of how bad you fucked our boss over before, went around him and just used him as ass wipe. Now he is in charge and holding you idiots accountable. Did anyone ever ask why he sent that message to the Deputy Superintendents? Why don't you ask what they did to make him say that?

hmmmmm

If an ADS does an override, he has to REPORT it, and that REPORT goes to the superintendent... THERE IS NOTHING IN THAT ORDER OUTSIDE THE NORMAL DEPARTMENT POLICY. It doesn't say get permission to meet with outside agencies, it says NOTIFY... geez, it is a NON EVENT

Starks isn't qualified to make coffe for the lockup. His act is a mere caricature of leadership. You couldn't write a play or comedy skit that had a more incompetent character in a lead role. He makes Don Knotts look like Dirty Harry!
Ald. Ike Carruthers put him there & will do his best to keep him there. Daley will probably keep him as Supt. knowing that he will play ball & also knowing very well that Starks isn't the first idiot we have had as Supt. We have had many. Who can blame the Feebs for not wanting to talk to our bosses with so many "Merit" imbeciles, clout babies,crooks, and Outfit God-children in the mix.

Federal government sues Illinois over new employment law

Associated Press - September 24, 2007 3:54 PM ET

SPRINGFIELD, Ill. (AP) - The federal government is suing the state of Illinois over a new law that targets eligibility of employers' new hires.

The US government filed the lawsuit today in federal court in Springfield.

The lawsuit contends a law passed by the Legislature and signed into law last month by Governor Rod Blagojevich undermines a federal employment verification program.

The law prevents Illinois employers from participating in the program unless 99% of notices telling employers that new hires are not legally authorized to work in this country are sent to employers within three days.

The federal government insists that can't be done so the law essentially blocks Illinois employers from the program.

The lawsuit asks the court permanently bar Illinois from enforcing the new law.


======================

We will probably lose federal dollars because of this nonsense being forced upon citizens by our politicians seeking illegal votes and businesses seeking cheap labor.

Identity theft is a crime and our politicians are criminals. It is time to vote these criminals out of office.

Sneed startting snooping around and could not find anything "juicy" so she's trying to make mountains out of mole-hills.

As for Starks being an idiot, maybe that's because he dumped the head of the SOP's after all of the misconduct committed by his officers.

Now good cops and citizens will be safer without these creeps masquerading as peace officers.

Why is Sneed harping about FBI clearance?

I think Starks has already had a thorough background check so do you think he's a criminal or so good at being a sneak, he not only got himself hired by the police department but also managed to raise through the ranks with some shady dealings in his past?

Sneed is stupid.

Mayor Daley is stupid too and should retire.

The CPD is not a joke, it is one of the best pd considering evrything that goes on in this city.

Have you considered all of the crooked executives and corrupt corporations, making false police reports, committing crimes and covering up by attacking the police?

Have you considered all the people who will watch someone being attacked, when the police come, they say they saw nothing. Then complain why is there so much crime and why can't the police catch these criminals?

Have you seen the complaints that the police don't ticket drivers on their cell phones because they are too busy talking on their own cell phones?

How not intelligent can a person be to not know an officer on his cell phone is handling official duties?

You guys are sooo stupid and believe everything you read in the media. Cline did not have FBI clearance, no matter how Sneed tries to shove that down our throat. Did you guys forget he was a part of Marquette 10. He and Lt. Scholl invoked their 5th Amendment rights, cooperated with authorities, and put their buddy criminals behind bars. One of the convicted felons wrote a book regarding this fact. Stop staying stupid and naive. Take the time to read instead of taking a statement that would support your stupidity, repeating it, adding to it and making it fact.

Starks is the policemen's police. You guys are just mad becasue he does not play your tune. That is why Cline was pissed. He called him on his fucked up actions, now he is being fucked! How does it feel Cline and Cline cronies???? The only bad thing about this story is, in spite of all this bullshit, he has not done one thing against Cline nor his region. He is a what a Superintendent should be. Fuck them Dana, keep making us proud and thank you for making this department and city pass resources across the city so all neighborhoods can be safe!

EVENT#99999

THE GRAND EVENT#

What Boss is the ultimate believer that an event number means something? W/C's D/C's are tubling over themselves like idiots trying to get these. Get an event number for this get one for that. Who is the person that recieves all these numbers and what do they do with them? Is that person the only one that believes that they mean something? How many times you here on the radio give me an event number for .... don't hold me down it. Or ask for an event number for a mission/ special attention/ whatever and the dispatcher gives it to you followed up by a job. Obviously you are spending no time on said mission then through no fault of your own.

Or the ultimate event# hoax pod mission. Every boss has pod mission on his log every night. But just cause you have an event number doesn't mean shit. (since the cameras DO NOT WORK,(dont pan focus) if u don't believe me have the media do a report on them and see for themselves at any station. Not at OEC or HQ, not sure how those work) SO the numbers r obviously meaningless yet they continue to put them on their logs to show them to WHO????

Reminds me of an old fable. The Emperor is in his underwear.
