What We Say, What Others Say

From the comments, someone put into words what we end up explaining way too often to tiny brains:
  • I don't always agree with SCC, and I am not an apologist for SCC. But I think SCC does provide us a place to talk...to let off steam...to joke...to keep each other apprised of current events (like Mike Mette). SCC doesn't force us to come here; we come here of our own accord.

    I don't think SCC has ever claimed to speak for all CPD members (and I've read and re-read SCC posts from the last couple of years). From what I have read, SCC speaks for SCC, and SCC only. The main posts are SCC's. The comments contained therein aren't SCC's (unless marked by SCC's logo); they're the comments of those who choose to comment on SCC's posts.

    I think people (police and not) fail to distinguish between what is SCC's (the posts on the dark blue background) and what is not SCC's (comments section for each post), thereby attributing attitudes or comments to SCC which SCC never had or stated.

    Critical thinking should enter here.

    Anonymity has its merits and its faults. We have no idea whether posters here are the police or not. Those who talk about lying, cheating, stealing, dogging, hating, etc. may be police or may be trolls. Who knows?

    Believe half of what you see and none of what you hear.
We've been taking flak in some recent e-mails and a couple of comments from people who don't seem to realize that we do minimal comment moderation and there is no way for us to tell who is the police, who is a civilian and who is a troll. And believe us, we have a bunch of trolls who type silly crap just to get a response. So please, stop writing to us about it. Stuff we write is on the front page or labeled as SCC in the comment section.

We still can't post a response to the previous post where it makes any sense.

NO, you're incorrest !! SCC posts anything and everything that is negative in regards to the CPD and certain members of the department. Rumors fly and if it's negative "you're in". I'd like to see the stuff that get's tossed out of his bin.

This is very true...I know I've posted things on multiple occasions just to create a debate. I don't write posts that create problems where there may be no problems,such as saying someone is doing this or that in "x" unit, when i have absolutely no knowledge, but rather I'll play devils advocate with different topics. I think now that there may be more civilian readers we should be a little more careful with our humor and knee jerk reactions when replying to different comments/incidents. This site is kind of like giving a starving man unending food, or in other words the ability to remain anonymous while speaking out on how truly screwed up society is. With that said, I would like to correct the writer of the southtown article in regards to the use of "animal". Animal is a word used to describe someone who commits a regular attack on society without remorse,they could be white,black, hispanic,or any other nationality. We as police officers have been labeled as racist for far too long and the reality of it is in order to hate someone you must care we may have opinions about different groups of people based on what we experience over and over again but regardless we are always fair. I think its time for people like Jesse Jackass and the other re..re...revs to realize that they aren't as important as they think they are and that in reality we would like to have as little contact with the public as possible, for our own sanity!

(OT) For all the coppers bitching about no cars available and about Garfied Ridge with no police services! In Todays newspaper the City Newshound on page #4 there is an article in the "Ward Report" about Garfied Ridge Night patrol which will assist police in curbing crime by volunteering their time to patrol. It is for both police and citizens alike. The article states for more info to call Ald. Zalewski's office @773-582-4444 or Al Cacciottolo President of the Garfield ridge Night Force @ 773-716-9902. So lets quit the bitching and try this concept! In the 70's Vittum Park area had the "Green Hornets patrol", and at that time it worked! (No not with Kato and the Black Beauty)!

I say if they can get enough folks to rally down in Jena for some seriously twisted racial shit why can't we do the same for Mike Mette?

Nothing racial. Nothing political. Nothing but coppers showing their support for a railroaded, fellow officer. Nothing more, nothing less. It doesn't bare the tensions of Jena but it shows a solidarity towards corruption and wrongful prosecution.

I couldn't think of a more just cause. Forget all the BS but the facts of this case are cut and dry: MIke got shafted. Plain and simple. Let's show Iowa, Chicago and the nation we won't stand for injustices as such. Unite the brotherhood-of all colors and creed-for a worthy cause.

I'm sure Jesse will let us use his buses after he's done with them.

SCC: As one who usually agrees with you and your take on this Department and this city, and who has 95% of his comments posted, I say, keep up the good work!

IS "SGT. 848"THIS THE LITTLE IDIOT WITH THE NAPOLEON COMPLEX WE'VE BEEN HEARING ABOUT IN THE TRAFFIC UNIT? THIS SERGEANT IS ALLEDGED IN THE IAD ALLEGATIONS TO HAVE SANDBAGGED A POLICE OFFICER WITH A B.S. COURT DEVIATION IN ORDER TO HARRASS HIM. IS IT TRUE THIS SERGEANT WAS OVERHEARD ON AUDIOTAPE BY AN OUTIDE AGENCY BRAGGING THAT HE "F*****" THIS OFFICR OVER FOR DUI'ING HIS FRIEND?

A FRIEND OF MY WIFE IS A LAWYER. THIS CASE HAS LAWSUIT WRITTEN ALL OVER IT. IF IAD BLOWS THIS CASE OFF, THE INVESTIGATORS GET SUBPOENAED TO EXPLAIN THEIR INVESTIGATION IN DETAIL!

SCC: WHAT'S IAD DOING ON THIS CASE? TELL US: WHAT RULES DID THE "LITTLE SERGEANT" VIOLATE IN SANDBAGGING THE P.O. WITH A B.S. COURT DEVIATION.

HEY! MEMBERS OF THE PUBLIC WHO'RE READING SCC FOR THE FIRST TIME. SEE WHAT IDIOTS THAT THE DEPARTMENT HAS FOR SUPERVISORS!!

****
The Night Patrol can patrol the west end all they want. If they catch catch the bad guy, they'll have to take them to the 008th district themselves because there is no service on the West end.
More tagging on the back side of the new gas station on Archer & Nagle. This is the 4th tagging on Archer that I have seen in the past month between Nagle & Nashville. Maybe if they patrolled over here, they could possibly catch someone, Ya Think?!? People call here all the time and wait and wait and wait. F*in Ridiculous!!!!
So unless you're gonna have you're ass out there patrolling Buzz Off. and If you don't "LIVE" on the beat, MYOB. The service on the West end sucks!

*****************
Dropped my letter at Zalewski's office:

As a citizen in your Ward, CPD beat 811, I was wondering where the petitions are that the precinct captains were supposed to be bringing by in order to divide the 008th district in two??

I am willing to have my family & friends in the district sign the petition. Please feel free to put several in my mailbox or bring them after 4pm.

Also, I have personally put in 6 graffiti removal requests to 311 over the past month along Archer Ave, between Nagle & Neenah. 3 city service requests were done today 6434, 6456, 6502 Archer.

Why do we never see the police patrolling our beat? We probably pay the largest amount of taxes in this district, yet we get the least amount of service because they are pulling our beat cars to work the East end beats. Please call the Commander of the 008th District and inform him of this problem.
As I stood speaking to my neighbor, we witnessed at least 10 teenagers walking east through the North alley of Archer from Neenah; some with backpacks. But, no police to stop and check them out. (And before those of you smart asses say why didn't you go check them out, because I was with my small grandchild)

People in 008 start writing Zalewski's office.

I'm a civilian. Disarmed by decree...for now.

By the way, any bets on whether they reject my registration of a Ruger 10-22?

By the way, I'm shocked (not really) that D.C. suggests its citizens can defend themselves with rifles and shotguns. Now shotguns I get, although in D.C. you'd have to spend some time putting it back into working order. But in no way would I try to defend myself with a rifle, especially one of my military surplus .30 cals in the confines of a home.

We should have em on beats in 008 and on 2211. Some of us off duty's should set it up then we could protect the home front seeing that the districts can't protect tax payers, they protect welfare recipients.
