FOP Meeting Outrage

We confess to being amazed occasionally. We even throw out the word "outrageous" or "insanity" more regularly than we ought to when pointing out the stupidity of certain persons, be they police, politicians, public figures.

This is beyond all that. We don't even have words to describe it.

At the FOP meeting today (which we might have attended), members present were regaled with the following story from a Detective. The Detective was involved in an off duty shooting a number of years back. The shooting was determined to have been justified, but the inevitable lawsuit followed. As we understood it, the City settled for some amount, the Detective was convicted of no wrongdoing, the matter appeared to be done.

Recently, the Detective was contacted at his unlisted home number by reporters from the Chicago Tribune. The reporters further related that they were outside his home at that very moment and wished to ask him a number of questions regarding this shooting from almost a decade ago. The Detective hung up and didn't answer the door.

The usual howls of outrage accompanied this story and members were reminded that the media is most definitely not our friend in these trying times. All we can conclude is that the Tribune has a team of go-fers digging through all sorts of court records, looking for settlement offers approved by the City Council through the courts and they're data-mining for officer's personal info to find dirt or create dirt on closed files. Combined with the recent stories from numerous sources about the media stalking officers at bars, we can only conclude that it is open season on the police.

It's time to start striking back.

STOP IT!

Everyone on this job needs to stop being proactive. Do not get yourself hurt over dope or gang bangers. You want activity, write a curfew, contact card, or mover. Bid to a slow district and relax and enjoy your pension.

What happened to the Officers in 025 is an outrage and tragic. If the society we serve no longer values the work we do then give them what they deserve, nothing.

The high crime areas of the city will be high crime areas forever. The residents don't care so why should you.

Protect yourself and stay safe because nobody should have to go through the smear campaign the Officers from 25 are going through so some lawyer can get millions.

Well the news just got worse a jury sided with the asshole side regarding the screwdriver in the ass incident. 4.6 millon for something that never happened. yes they found screwdrivers in the glove box, just check any unmarked u probably will find one, they found fecal matter on the glove box, umm cops step in shit (real kind).
The jury was not allowed hear the attending docter at strogers who disputes the slit tear in the rectum though the asshole stated that the screwdriver was inserted numerous, which would cause a lot more damage than a slit tear. We can get slit tears from eating peanuts.
The assholes best friend went from seeing this incident to admitting that he never did on the stand, no DNA on any screwdriver recovered, anyone thats knows these coppers know the truth. I feel sick rt now.
God u need to wake up these fools in this country!

I really think it is time to just throw the white flag up and surrender.

The government is content in rewarding bad behavior with ever increasing taxes we pay.

There no longer is any moral standard or self-responsibility expected of a person.

Daley takes down the CHA projects so his buddies and family members can make multi-millions in residential developments and places these former CHA residents in apartments, condos and even houses worth $200,000.00 to $300,000.00. Imagine that, you and your spouse work two plus jobs to have a house and now they are handing out the same to people who just pump out babies without ever working a day in their life. The WIX program, not a government agency but an agency funded totally by the Chicago Catholic Archdieses (yes, you weekly cash donations to your church partly go there) buys pregnant women and their children all kinds of goodies from Milk to diapers. Numerous other agnecies pay for their electric, gas and other utilities. The list of freebies never end... Too long for me to mention here.

The illegal alien is WELCOME here by our Mayor, not withstanding that many commit murders and other crimes and flee back to their home country, never to serve a day in jail.

But us coppers, well your dental insurance is really a dental discount, you end up paying for most of the bill out of your pocket as other people, kids and illegals get totally free dental care free. Even look at the CTA buses and the billboards along side the buses- Put your kid in Head Start Program, receive free dental and medical care!

And our medical coverage sucks just as much, hell with preventive care, its not covered, the hell with routine medical services - their not covered. They keep taking from working people to reward everyone who lacks ANY responsibility and lacks ANY desire to work.

From crack heads to alcoholics - free monthly checks and benefits! But screw all of us!


The whole reason every level of government is broke is easy. There is not enough people working to support everyone who knows they can sit on their asses, get high and pump out kids and expect all of us to pay for it.

The reason why we have so many illegals in this country is because they are doing the jobs that the welfare people refuse to do. Notice I did say refuse to do, not can't do. Why work when you get free free free free and cash to boot for living life totally free of any rules or responsibilities?

I hope that a democrat wins the white house, that democrats win the senate and house. Because when they do, finally America will go broke and the hard working people who love America will rise and take this country back again!

As my grandfather said before he died.... This is not what so many of my friends and I fought for in WWII and so many gave their lives only to look around now to see so many who won't even go to work for this country today.

WIX?

That's a used auto dealer on Cicero....and probably is not funded by Catholic Charities. Catholic charities probably manages the local grant.

If you're writing about WIC, it's a program that comes out of the Department of Agriculture and it's existed since the 1950's.

It's a grant progran, not an entitlement program. It's an cost saving social program since every dollar spend on WIC saves taxpayers about $3 in future medicaid costs. Think about malnourished kids (this is the under five set) and their brain development at that age + bad nutrition = citizens who will eventually wind up at tax burdens when they become criminals, welfare abusers, because their brains are fried.

The kids can't help being born, why punish them for the goofiness of their parents?


As for your donations to Catholic Charities paying for this- no likely- Catholic Charities runs on lots of grant money from public and private sources. If you do donate and are concerned, donate to another program.

For the facts:

www.dhs.state.il.us/ehp/ofh/MIH/wicnp.html

www.fnusda.gov/wic/WIC-fact-sheet.pdf

The program covers supplemental food-not diapers.

And this fact sheet from the Georgia Department of Public Health:

health.state.ga.us/pfds/wic/wicfaq.pdf

It breaks down the cost benefit further into what it saves per infant.

The racial breakdown for participants: 40% white, 31 % Hispanic, 24% Black, and 5% other...

There's no avoiding that this country will always have social programs, for individuals or for corporations-just look at the railroads and airline industries -at least WIC is cost saving, not every program is.

OK, these monetary awards have been killers over time. This is what the City gets for forcing residency.....a smaller pool of qualified applicants...less character....less education, etc.. Add people who have pushed the limits and covered things over for years...it has become the norm for many. The media just wants to see how deep the poop really is. And from the looks of things it may be a lot deeper than they even believed it to be. But, if people went to work and just did their job they wouldn't have to worry about this crap. It can be done. There should be embarrassment instead of outrage.

The entire literate planet knows that ex-NYPD officer Justin Volpe was convicted of sodomizing Abner Louima with a broken broomstick in the bathroom of Brooklyn's 70th Precinct (Flatbush) ten years ago.

Now a jury has concluded that two innocent 25th District officers did the same unspeakable act with a screwdriver.

Unlike Volpe, now serving a 30 year sentence in New York, the two CPD officers were cleared of any wrongdoing.

By awarding $4 million, the jury either believed the plaintiff's preposterous allegation or they were clones of "the O.J. Jury", "jury nullification" and their own personal agenda.

In effect, the chronic silence of the Law Dept. of the City of Chicago has stigmatized these two officers as Chicago's version of Justin Volpe despite the fact that the allegation was neither sustained by OPS nor prosecuted.

And don't start that nonsense about the relative standards of proof between criminal and civil prosecution.

If, in fact, these officers did sodomize the arrestee with a screwdriver, they deserve a fate not unlike that of Justin Volpe.

In public perception, thousands of dedicated and exemplary hard-working police officers are now "the baby thrown out with the bath water".

The Cook Co. jury system, particularly when the case has potential racial implications, has been compromised. Just look at the electorate of morons from which the jurors are selected. As long as the Democratic Machine reigns in Chicago and Crook County, the anti-police climate will only get worse, if possible.

With metaphysical certainty, Emperor Daley will pick another "insider" as the next CPD superintendent/puppet. Corruption and institutionalized CLOUT RULES local politics, including the CPD!

Without cataclysmic change in the (lack of) leadership in the CPD, either opt for a career change or count the days until pension, officer.

Thanks to Daley, his media influence and a complacent FOP, we are doomed!

Ultimately, an apathetic public will get the police force that they truly deserve.

Stay safe, back up each other in the streets and otherwise assume a low profile in this insane asylum called the CPD.

I hate to go off-topic but something I saw last night on duty I think is worthy of mention given the constant bad light we're seen under. Sometimes we only have ourselves to blame.

Last night (Tuesday, 16 Oct) at about 7:30pm, two marked cars were northbound on Ashland from Roosevelt and stopped behind a CTA bus at the red light at Taylor. The bus was loading/unloading passengers when the light changed to green. The squad car right behind the bus rudely or impatiently began blasting the air horn. When the bus driver did not close his doors, strand his remaining boarding passengers and immediately move out of the way, Officer Friendly floored it and went around the bus and made his right turn from the center lane directly in front of the bus. The officer then proceeded east and arrived at his favorite Taylor Street restaurant to enjoy his discounted meal.

And many of you wonder why people hate us? Everyone can see everything we do in our gleaming white cars. They don't blend in with traffic very well to begin with and then you start blasting the horn as if to say, "Hey everyone! Look at me while I do something stupid on this busy corner."

Good work, officer. You earned us all that break on dinner last night.

Cook County Board President Todd Stroger today proposed more than tripling the county's share of sales taxes and doubling the gas and parking taxes to fund a $3.2 billion budget for 2008 that would add 1,000 employees to the payroll.

Stroger said the increase in county workers to 24,841 is needed to boost staffing at the jail, juvenile detention center and the hospital system.

In his budget speech to county commissioners this morning, Stroger said he remains "open to suggestions" but made it clear that the county must raise taxes.

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

I am the poster who suggested the youtube idea. As a police wife, I am outraged that the media,non tax payers, and politicians treat officers as they do. I think you should give them what they want. They say you are lazy, then be lazy. They say you don't care, well then don't care. They say you don't police, well then don't. Other than officer safety for you and your partners answer your calls only. Take your time getting to those Johnny won't go to school again calls. Traffic sucks, how can they prove you took your time? I have looked at many angles of this and I am saddened that i who is not one to give up, feel as if you all SHOULD give up. Give up on trying to do a good job. Doing a good job get you in a beef most of the time. Do the minimum, but never at officer safety expense. They say you are not in certain areas? What better proof than your autograph on a parking ticket at all of the FESTS every Sunday,
I mean church. They want to feel safe, ok start with a ticket for all of those Cadillac Escalades double parked. After all, a child can get hit by a car darting into traffic through those illegally parked cars. I know I will probably get some slack over this post but you know what? I don't care. I know we can move, I know the suburbs have this of that so don't even bother with those types of comments. It is not as easy to start over as some of you think. We have kids, we are not just going to pick up and go. Also I work at a Suburban police dept and let me tell you, it is getting rough out there too. Houses are not affordable as many posters say. Section 8 is popping up everywhere in the burbs. Talk about this with your families. Agree to stop seeing the bad and just do the minimum. Going to work and being bitter at the end of everyday is not good for your loved ones or your health. if you have no plans to quit then you HAVE to make it work for you somehow. When you walk in the door, forget about work-but when you go into your squad car think of your family and yourself FIRST. Be safe and realize that even if it is only police families that are thankful for you guys, is that not enough? We appreciate you, my kids appreciate you. Who cares what all of the number 1's think? Think of the officers who died in vain, make their death be worth something.

The Lawyers were private, understand something Daley along with the brothers John and Bill willingly give these cases to favorite law firms to make money, they then kick it back to the Brothers.

I suppose one way to begin overt disapproval with anyone in a Media position would be to publish, on this site, the e-mail addresses and / or telephone numbers of the reporter/s for members to voice their complaints.

The Editors or supervisors should also be listed for their failure to be sensitive by the publishing or viewing of biased news.

The owners of the papers and the board members also...that goes also for the electrical media.

The "Lexus Nexus" type research that allows the media to discover unlisted / private information is also avail. to us without placing a department member in jeopardy for using "official" resources.
These sites offer home addresses. I'm sure no one appreciates a home visit asking why a biased and incorrect piece was published.

Word wars should be fought with words. The words should be correct and representative of a well thought out retort.

Watson, the game is afoot

I agree with many of the rest...I officially give up. Here is my white flag waving in the wind. I surrender not to the thugs and bangers of the westside, but to the ridiculous, politically correct society. Common sense has long left us and the common man has lost all free thought, and is smiling when he is force fed bullshit. I have waited these past years for people to come to their senses, for the lightbulb to go on and people to ask themselves what the hell are we doing? I am only met with the adages of do more with less. Or stop murders and drug sales, but don't you dare interrupt the lifestyle of entitlement we have provided for them. I am starting to liken this to other times in history where people have been caught up in such fervor that all intelligence has been swept aside, and those who speak up are punished for it. "step in line, shut up, and you'll get by" Its sad to say that someone like myself who loved this job so much is now so jaded by our lack of leadership and direction. We are the police dept. and we are afraid of street corner rev-ERRRR-unds yelling racism that we turn a blind eye to what we are sworn to protect. Its sad that our fine dept. has gone out with a whimper and not a bang....

I would also like to thank Mark Donahue and the FOP for doing such a great job on our last contract. I cant wait to see how much more I will get screwed with the next contract when we get it in 2009 or 2010.

So thanks to all the working coppers because everytime I look at my medical bills I think of all you stupid idiots that are making arrests and believing that this shithole of a city let alone the department cares about you.

Wait until you or a loved one needs medical care... then you'll see how bad you have been screwed.

Any Chicago Police Officer that is working without a contract is nothing but a damn fool!

Can't we stick together for once. Even without the ass kissers and kool aid drinkers we can make a valid point to our idiot mayor. DON"T DO A DAMN THING!

When will common sense return.

To the general public:

Most of the criminal element we deal with are filthy, and "stink like shit" causing us to have to hold our noses during their arrest processing. The last thing on our minds is "let's make him strip and stick something up his anus."

You fucking tools on the jury are conditioned by years of watching Springer,Povich and the like on T.V.,and the only thought you have is "lets make the plaintiff a lottery winner!"

Keep giving the victimizers of society (criminals) money. It just reinforces the saying "Crime does pay!"

I have been told to "go fuck myself" so many times by the criminals and the public that my rectum hurts too! CAN I GET 4.1 Million for my hurt feelings?

NO. WE CAN'T EVEN GET A FAIR CONTRACT!

I have given many years of hard work to this city's citizens: no more. I used to just despise the criminals of chicago, now I despise most Chicagoans. Its Chicagoans who comprise the members of these juries and they obviously think very little of the people committed to their defense.

And what YOU don't seem to realize is that if you weren't raping the Constitution of the United States Of America and performing street side strip searches instead of DOING IT THE RIGHT WAY, perhaps the Public might have a bit of faith in you! Instead, you do the old "means to an end", shortcuts, sloppy police work, then LIE ABOUT IT UNDER OATH in court, and wonder why the "bad guy" walks away with the ghetto lotto grand prize.

I'm not even talking about this particular case, because I wasn't there, all I know is that there certainly doesn't seem to be enough evidence here for a finding of culpability against the City!

Overall, I am sick and tired of the so-called "police work" that I see, and the money it is costing ALL OF US who are trapped living in this City.

I'm no super cop, but at least I have my dignity and my word. I'd rather never make another dope arrest again than have to perform "creative writing" and then lie on the stand! How does society benefit from breaking one law to enforce another? Do you really think you are making a difference? BULLSHIT! You are making Lovey & Lovey MILLIONAIRES, that's about it!

Cop or no cop, if someone tried to shove a screwdriver up my ass, the shit would be flying everywhere, until I either got beaten down, or beat down the guy trying to do me in. And this kid is going to say he didn't say anything until he got out of jail? BULLSHIT!!!

In this day and age, the more outlandish the story, the more likely a jury of idiots will give them a payoff. A payoff for the most outrageous story!

Let me say just one thing...The real embarassment is that we as an organization can not band together to make a single point or stand up for ourselves!! We are the ones that made ourselves what we are....We are the only ones who embarass ourselves...we are the only ones who do not stand up for ourselves...Hell..A dope dealer gets more support than we do...they stick together better than we do...that is sad!! We as an organization suffer....think of it before you lash out at me...when have we ever stood together??? NEVER...When have we ever said enough is enough?? NEVER...When have we ever picketed city hall or the news media...NEVER...We are the only ones to blame for our demise..plain and simple. We are the only ones who do stupid things to get ourselves in trouble....I am sorry to say these things as I have been a police officer for over 15 years and I do enjoy my job...still... but we have to learn to stand together or we will continue to suffer and be berated by this department and the news media...The recent events have really made us look bad and I understand it is the actions of a few but the media parade will continue to make us look terrible to the public...just wait until the law suits from the Finnigan arrests start rolling in...the city will be paying out millions of dollars to criminals in light of scandal...count on that to happen for sure...we will again suffer...and take more hits and have more black eyes...but...we MUST stand together and show this city that we are not going to take the abuse from them or the media because of an isolated few officers who chose to go the other direction. Officers, I plead to you...Let us stand together and not turn on eachother ...We need to protect ourselves from the media by doing the right thing...we are one of the best police departments in the world...we need to start acting like it! Go out and do your job...do the right thing, and go home to your family! Those of you who wish to do the wrong thing....eventually your deeds will gat you caught and you will shame all of us...if you are or are thinking about doing the wrong thing...resign. Please be safe...and go home to your families!!

A CPD Supervisor

FYI: The World Boxing Council Detail:

CPD is using headquarters personnel, recruits, and Area 3,4,5 Detectives. This is a huge misuse of police officers, but this is King Richie's warm up for the Olympics, so we are supposed to do as told, and not question anything. Problem is, many Detectives were assigned to this detail randomly, after nobody volunteered. So a few guys at different areas contacted FOP, who claied they had no knowledge of this Detail. As of this afternoon, Detectives were re-assigned to the Detail based on reverse seniority. Thanks to the FOP for looking into this and getting the Areas to comply with the contract, sort of. You see, the powers that be have still managed to change start times by more than 2 hours, and with roughly 48 hours notice. Despite several meetings, no one is really certain what the detectives are going to be doing, other than playing the role of Hotel Security at the Swissotel, and the Palmer for 2 weeks. Keep drinking the Kool Aid...............

OFF TOPIC BUT IMPORTANT

NEVER FORGET!!!!!!!!
NEVER EVER FORGET!!!!!!!!!!!!!

CCSPD Investigator Michael Ridges.
End of watch: 17 October 1985.


On October 17, 1985, Officer Michael Ridges, assigned to North Investigations, was reviewing a series of vandalism incidents that occurred around a Prospect Heights home. While working on the case near the home, Officer Ridges noticed a car with three men inside who closely matched the physical descriptions of the offenders in the case. Officer Ridges contacted the radio room with the basic description of the vehicle and its occupants prior to curbing the car. Once stopped, all three men exited the car and while Officer Ridges was checking their identities, one man drew a concealed gun and shot Officer Ridges once in the head and once in the hand, fatally wounding him.

The offenders were caught a short time later based on Officer Ridges' original radio transmission and a telephone call to police from a citizen who witnessed the incident. It was later revealed through a police investigation that the three men were en route to commit a contract murder at the Prospect Heights home where Officer Ridges was investigating the vandalism incidents. One of the offenders confessed to police he was prepared to kill everyone present in the intended victim's home.



CCSPD extends our thanks to the CPD tactical unit officers that copied the ISPERN (I assume by way of 11th/State as you guys don't typically have ISPERN radios in your squads)and pinched the assholes that did this to our Michael.

Thanks guys...... excellent policework. I salute you!

You claim that the detective "hung up and did not answer the door." The detective's initials are F.R. By his own account, F.R. DID NOT hang up and he DID answer the door, inviting the Trib reporter in to talk. Your entirely false description of the events proves that you were not at the FOP general meeting. Please report the truth or do not report at all. Your BS is not helping matters. Please post this so others know the truth or please talk to F.R. and then issue a retraction.

Today's media will do anything for a story. The meaning of journalist integrity does not exist among Chicago's media.

The Chicago media has shown that nobody is safe from their wrath. They will sell out and destroy the citizens of Chicago/state of Illinois, elected public officials of this city/state, other public officers in government charged with helping the public (ie: police, fire, teachers), businesses that provide services to citizens and even other people in the media (sometimes members of their own profession).

The media does not see any of us as human beings with feelings who sometimes make mistakes, all they see us (especially those working in the area of public service) as a story.

The unethical reports of the Chicago media will inevitably lead to social disaster. Persons who, at one point in their lives, wanted to help others will become disillusioned with their work because of the biased stories printed by the media.

Police will stop proactivly responding to crime, firemen will stop doing everything they can to help people in need, teachers will stop trying to get through to students who need the extra attention and politicans will stop caring about the needs of their constituents.

You all have seen many of these things already happening in our community. What do we do? How do we hold the Chicago media accountable? I don't know. But I wish I had the answer.

Signed,

TO ELABORATE A LITTLE ON THIS COMMENT FOR THE NON-POLICE WHO MAY VISIT THIS SITE, A GRAND JURY IS A JURY PUT TOGETHER OF PRO-PROSECUTION CITIZENS,HENCE THE ABILITY TO INDICT A HAM SANDWICH COMMENT, WHERE THE PROSECUTION PRESENTS ITS CASE AS SEEN BY EVERYONE INVOLVED ON THE PROSECUTION SIDE I.E POLICE,VICTIMS,WITNESS. ITS NOT A DIFFICULT TASK AND ALMOST ALL PEOPLE ARE INDICTED THROUGH THIS METHOD. WE AS DETECTIVES USUALLY TESTIFY IN IT FOR LARGE CASES SUCH AS AN OFFENDER WHO HAS COMMITTED MULTIPLE ROBBERIES,BURGLARIES ETC.
THE PROBLEM AS OF LATE IS THAT THE WORD "INDICT" IS MADE TO SOUND TO BE AN OPEN AND SHUT CASE,WHICH MOST ARE ITS JUST MAYBE EASIER TO HANDLE THAN IN AN OPEN COURTROOM WHICH ARE ALWAYS CROWDED. MOST OFFICIALS SUCH AS A POLICE OFFICER (TONY ABBATE,ONE OF THE TWO BAR VIDEOS) WILL ALMOST ALWAYS BE INDICTED TO AVOID A POLITICAL CONFLICT, THE RULING IS SEALED AND YOU ARE NOT OFFICIALLY INDICTED UNTIL IT IS OPENED. SO WITH THE SOS CASE I'M FAIRLY SURE THAT THE SEALED INDICTMENT WAS A LITTLE PERSUASIVE FOR SOME OF THE P.O.S WHO ARE WITNESS, KIND OF A WHAT EVER YOU WANT ME TO HAVE KNOWLEDGE OF...FEAR,IS MY GUESS. FINALLY, AS FAR AS THE BAR VIDEO,GIVE THOSE GUYS A BREAK COMMON SENSE TELLS YOU THAT THE PERSON PRESENTING THE VIDEO WILL HAVE THEIR OWN VIEW ($$$) OF WHAT HAPPENED. AS A POLICE OFFICER WHAT I SAW DID NOT GIVE A FULL SCENE OF THE SITUATION, MEANING THAT THE GUY COULD HAVE BEEN DRINKING OUTSIDE THE BAR, AND THE OFFICERS TO AVOID BEING OUT MANNED WAITED FOR MORE OFFICERS TO GO IN AFTER THE GUY...AND DO YOU THINK IN A FAIRLY CROWDED BAR YOU KNOWN TO BE A GANG BAR YOU WOULD NOT PAT DOWN THOSE WHO ARE GOING TO BE AROUND YOU...YOU ARE PROTECTING THE PUBLIC YOU HAVE A RIGHT TO BE CAUTIOUS. AS FAR AS GOING INTO POCKETS DO YOU THINK THAT PATTING SOMETHING THAT FEELS LIKE A POCKET KNIFE SUCH AS A LIGHTER THAT YOU CAN'T CHECK? THE GUY WHO WAS GOING TO GO TO JAIL MAY HAVE BEEN SOMEONE THEY DIDN'T WANT TO GO. NEXT THING STICK! THAT KNIFE IS IN YOUR NECK.
REMEMBER, THE LAWS ARE NOT CUT AND DRY, WE HAVE BASIC CIVIL RIGHTS JUST LIKE LAWS BUT AS WITH ALL LAWS THERE IS A,BUT... .GOOD LUCK TO THOSE GUYS, GOD BLESS THEM AND THEIR FAMILIES AND EVERYTHING WILL BE O.K.. OH AND STFU WHEN IT COMES TO OTHER P.O.'S ISSUES IF THE WRLD NEEDS TO KNOW THEY'LL KNOW,AND NO ONE EXCEPT THE P.O. THEMSELF KNOWS THE REAL STORIES AND AS FOR THE MEDIA NO ONE PAYS ATTENTION AND IF THEY DO HEAR IT, IT GOES IN ONE EAR OUT THE OTHER,POLICE STUFF IS OLD NEWS.THIS ISN'T A CRIMINAL ENTITY THIS IS GOOD PEOPLE SUPPORTING THEIR FAMILIES AND DOING THE BEST THEY CAN.

Some ways to insure your privacy, from the media and everyone else.

Register your vehicles to a post office box, just by initial and last name.

Loose the land line phone, if you keep it don't get it unlisted and pay a $1.50 a month, the number can still be obtained. Better to get it published in any name you want, mom's maiden name or your high-school nickname.

Portability may allow you to take the land line phone number and make it a cell phone. If Toddler gets his way and puts a $4.00 a month county tax on all phone lines, get the bill sent to your in-laws in the collar counties. Then get paperless statements online and there will be no mail to deal with.

On your cell phone, you can get it set to automatically block Caller ID.

If you fill out any application for anything, and it is not absolutely necessary, don't put down any occupation, especially "Chicago Police Officer." Put down something like Service Agent, City of Chicago. If they balk at that, tell 'em you work some hush-hush elite unit and must keep your identity secret.
This can also be done with utility bills, subscriptions.

Voter lists are public documents, use your best judgment there. After all you want to vote against Richie, Toddler and all the other bastards.

Be Discrete, and Stay Safe.

The physician came into the waiting room and related the following to the three prominent Chicagoans, Gentlemen, in order to do a correct colonoscopy, we must evacuate your intestines so the fiber optic camera can travel your intestinal path and allow us to observe your intestinal walls.

But it has also come to our attention that the three of you are so full of shit, we could never fully evacuate your bowels!

Black voters predominently voted Stroger into office. The our turn now reaction. True racism.

My own opinion is that they elected a cook co. system of racial taxation by taxing the middle class workers, black, hispanic, and white but predominently white ie. police/ fire/ teachers/ loop working m/f in various business etc.
The taxbase of this city. The ones who pay on time and in full.

These are the same taxpayers who get zero return when it comes to free handouts that cost the city and county dearly every tax year. Chumps.

The poor or uneducated voter, voting solely for the black candidate no matter what have saddled the rest with an incompetent fool. Read and inform yourselves.

Daley is no better. Perhaps worse but he'll pay in the long run to the gain more of hispanic votes.

voting by race is wrong but most importantly you can see how it really comes back to bite us all in the ass. The ward votes were all published in the papers. You know this is going to continue.
We all deserve the slap when we do not vote at all. less than 50% is a shame.

There is so much more that officers can do to fight against all the bullshit that is getting thrown your way. UNITE AGAINST ALL THE BULLSHIT ! UNITE, UNITE, UNITE. The citizens of the westside for example like cameras so much, then record their asses and put it up on any media, cyber outlets that you can and show how most criminals CHOOSE to live, somebody record the Ickes on a usual weekend night and show how trespassers and some residents like to live. The media stated that the "reverends/activists" wanted tougher gun laws and so forth but who do they expect to enforce these laws and when they do , everybody cries foul. When p.o.'s choose to stop working - it only hurts fellow p.o.'s, and ultimately it hurts your own family because no matter where you live - there is always bullshit around the corner. Officers say not to rat on other officers but officers who are dirty - are dirty and in the long run they are hurting all p.o.'s Idiot officers hurt you, the job, the department, and ultimately again -- your family. Officers who are pulling scams with the medical are also hurting you - so why would you ever stick by the p.o.'s causing more problems? The job is hard enough without these idiots adding to it and hurting the image even more. I say, if you all are tired then unite and start displaying on VIDEO, the bullshit that all p.o.'s have to put up with. Maybe, as p.o.'s - there should be less acceptance of dogs and idiots-- I repeat, these officers only hurt all p.o.'s Obviously these p.o.'s don't care about the rest , when they are pulling their medical scams and dodging jobs. I am not siding with the idiotic citizens who act like morons and have this whole accepting, comfortable environment of a thuggish life style, what I am saying is get smarter and invent ways of getting the p.o.'s side heard-- after all, SCC did it, but that is only the beginning.

"WHO'S THE GUY WHO RESPONDS IN BLUE PRINT WITH EVERYTHING UNDERLINED....PLEASE STOP...IT'S TOO DISTRACTING / IM HALF A SLEEP, AND ITS HARD ENOUGHT TRYING TO READ THE SAMLL BLACK PRINT."

It's a whole lot easier to read the blue letters than your rambling CAPS LOCK tirades. Do you want to know what is distracting? Illiterates like you and the other 75% of the posters here who can't spell even when they're sober. It really makes us look like an intelligent bunch, don't you think?

Instead of posting at 3am when you're drunk, why not just sleep it off and post in the morning?

Rumor mill again but what the hell, might as well tell you what I heard: Is it true that many, if not all, of these lawfirms that make a habit of suing the city are major contributors to Daleys campaign? Is it true that the powers at city hall were worried about improper campaign funds and have resorted to this? Supposedly Daleys boys told these firms that you scratch my ass and i'll scratch yours. Donate big sums to his campaign fund in return for Daley ordering the city to settle numerous suits brought on by these firms. Daleys boys get paid in return for campaign contributions and its not Daleys money. Its taxpayer money so who cares? There is nothing really illegal about this because its almost impossible to prove. Daley and the city will always say "its just cheaper to settle than pay the officers OT and court fees and drag out a jury trial." Thats their way of explaining it, when in reality Loevy and many others are making huge money off the city taxpayers and Daley gets his campaign contributions in return

SCC You have the power to organize a march of angry, disgruntled police officers that are tired of the media talking shit all day every day. Us guys that type shit on here are just 1 man in a district with no way to get the word out. Im challenging YOU to come up with a plan. Lets plan a march on a weekday around city hall or around ch 2 5 and 7. We have enough coppers to send a few thousnad to each media outlet. lets be heard for once. Post a date and time on here and give the coppers a week notice. Get flyers out to every unit in the city. I guarantee it gets results. At the very least it shows we are tired of the bullshit and it gets dick daley PISSED OFF. And to the coppers, we need EVERYONE. Bring your kids and wife too. Leave the city with nothing ! If the thugs want it, let them have it. THIS ISNT THE CHICAGO I GREW UP IN ANYWAYS> I grew up in a working class city that gave a fuck about right and wrong. The liberals have tatken over and fucked it up. Let them fix it

Some ways to insure your privacy, from the media and everyone else.

Register your vehicles to a post office box, just by initial and last name.........

You can't do that. You have to use your resident address...OR...you can use your unit or Police HQ as the address. Do what he says, just register your cars to your unit/district/HQ. That is allowed by law and then the asshat reporters can go look for you there.....which they won't!

Why do my tax dollars go to put you up in a apartment that you trash, pay for your gas bill to keep your house at 80 degrees all winter with open windows when I go broke trying to keep my place 68? I pay for your food and schools and what do you do with these handouts? You tear your home apart beat your kids you keep popping out, shoot up the hood, terrorize hardworking people and sell your crack to your "friends" turning them into thieves to support their habit. Then you sue the police for doing out job and the city settles giving you millions. UNF*ING BELIEVABLE!

There is much more drama when one of these animals is hugging his family outside a jailhouse fence.

Its just a shame that Burge tried to give all those BLACK victims some justice. He was such a racist.

The City did not settle. The Corp Counsel agreed that if the jury found for the plaintiff, damages would be given in the amount of $4 million. If the jury found for the City, no payout would be made.

So instead of fighting to beat the case, the City is negotiating to minimize payouts when they lose. And they know they are going to lose because they have the worst lawyers imaginable.

Interesting. I saw the mother of that murdered youth on TV at a memorial set up by neighborhood kids, and she was crying. Said her deceased child was her best friend. I don't know if any of the posters here has ever lost a child, but no one here has the right to judge ANY PARENT on how they cope with the sudden loss of their child due to murder, so don't. We often come off as non compassionate and unsympathetic during the course of our duties; so be it. We can't wear our emotions on our sleeves when we see truly maddening shit on a raid fire basis. But it really disrespects our profession when someone here posts that because the mother of that murdered kid has so many children, it is implied that she won't miss one. Sorry guys, but we don't get to make that call. She carried each of them inside of her, and gave birth. From the pictures I saw, he was a cute kid. No one spoke ill of him, not his friends, nor his teachers. A little respect goes a long way. And I don't recall the mother saying anything on tv about lawsuits, or money. Who would she sue anyhow? The lowlifes who did this don't have a dime, that's for sure. We need to really be careful what some of us put down in print. SCC, another lousy job of screening what embarrasses our profession.
