Media Sting

Trying to land another punch. From the comments:
  • VERY IMPORTANT!!!

    FYI Boys and Girls...

    Several 010th District officers left Duggan's on Halsted two nights ago and as they walked to the parkinglot a man walked up and asked them a question. The question was "hey, you guys have been drinking for 3 hrs. and your also the police- Are you guys getting into your cars and going to drive now?"

    The P.O.s also noticed the microphone the reporter was holding and then the ABC 7 news truck parked on Halsted. Im sure they P.O.'s were shocked but handled it by replying...that
    while yes they were coming from Duggans but No they were not going to drive they were going to Taco King for some food. The P.O.s then WALKED to taco king and ate slowly!

    It appears the media is probably doing an "exclusive report" on P.O.s drinking in bars. Please watch your backs.
As far as we know, you are allowed to drink in bars. However, with the recent spotlight being shone on the Rules and Regulations (the Rule 47 thing), you are not permitted to be intoxicated on or off duty. The strictest interpretation of this rule means not in your own home while watching the Bears blow another game. Whether or not that last part would survive a court challenge is an argument for another day.

What is important to realize is that because of recent events, scandals, bad publicity, etc., we WILL be hung out to dry if found in questionable circumstances. Maybe it'll be a stint down at Call Back. Maybe it'll be thirty days, two paychecks and a fund raiser (ironically, at a bar). In the current political climate, maybe it'll be your job. And god forbid it'll be your name and face all over the news, doing a decade in prison after killing a couple of civilians in the suburbs. We had a bunch of those a year or two back if you remember.

Walk it. Cab it. Find someone to drive you home. Sleep it off at the station - you wouldn't be the first, you ain't going to be the last. Stay smart.

Maybe we should have a expose of married with children news people that try to lure 14 year old girls over the internet into having sex with them. Oh wait...that's old news. Thanks CLTV.

More NEWS media bullS%&T. Does anyone remember how much of a jagoff Ryko was when he was nabbed for DUI? I guess the media has a double standard when it comes to them. I would love to be waiting for one of those jag-mo's to come walking out of a bar all smacked up.

Word from inside city hall says "Daley had a heads up on the news team doing stings on off duty police for the last few weeks and decided to let the chips fall where they may". If you didnt realize it yet the Mayor hates us and wants as much bad press as possible so we will look even worse in the media since it is now contract time!

There's no sting. Those drnk boys outta 010 are either paranoid or it never happened. I prefer to believe the latter....that it never happened. Why didn't they just let them get in their cars and follow them home....then ask? They are sneeky little shits and are smart enough to do it right. Do they go up to the jamokes coming outta traffic court on DWLS and ask them if they are driving?...NO. They wait until they get behind the wheel. Then they ended up on page 1. They do have experience doing this. I don't buy it. Bartender, where's my shit?!

Maybe you guys should all pitch in and hire a private investigator to follow some of the media people around. Just do s zaba search, most of their addresses are on there. A few are in Hinsdale. Perhaps even on your own time , video THEM and post it on You Tube. You guys are like celebrities trying to dodge the paparazzi, except if the media gets in your way while you are doing your job, someone can get hurt. I mean look at how easy it was to catch Amy Jacobson with that killer in plainfield.

If it is true then it sounds like the media already did the following of these guys otherwise how did the media know they were the police, where they drink and when they got there? Which means the media already has these guys on tape from previous incidents and the bullshit interview was the end of the report not the beginning. If that is the case I'm sure we will see this on the news soon if we don't then it is all bullshit.

"Today, parks spokeswoman Jessica Maxey-Faulkner said enforcement would be user-driven. People angry about smokers could call the police, who would issue a ticket, said Maxey-Faulkner."

Yeah, call the Police. According to alderman Tunney we are in a manpower shortage and should not be wasting our time on minor stuff (Like Cell phone while driving tickets)

And then there is.

“Our main goal is to protect children,’’ she said.

if there is a problem of drunken cops, it ought to be dealt with. preferably by those directly involved, but if it takes news media attention to force some action, thats just the way it is.

What has happened in the past with POs drinking at home who have come to the attention of the Department through pissed off spouses or neighbors is:

Sergeant shows up and either does the right thing and blows it off or gets a CR# and/or orders the PO to blow.

The PO is then sent to call back. He is also told to get help. Then you are in limbo- collecting your check- until someone decides you are not or no longer a drunk.

Best bet, never, ever let the Supervisor into your home or if your sposue or neighbor calls, go out the back door and watch the Bears game in a bar.

On that day of the week, on a pre-determined date, we compile a list of all sponsors of that particular newscast. We then boycott each and every sponsor or advertiser for a month long period. Given the large number of our extended family this will surely have an adverse impact on those advertisers. Falling sales, along with the the publicity this will generate (thank-you SCC), and perhaps a few will re-consider their sponsorship. Surely, the sponsors' advertising departments will be screaming at those in charge of Channel 7's policy makers. This is the only way, via completely legal means, to hurt those who employ such underhanded tactics....in their corporate wallets. If the boycott is even remotely successful, you can be sure other television outlets will take notice. The beauty of this is that it can also be extended to the print media. If the Tribune wants to play harball with unfair, biased reporting, we can boycott some of their larger advertisers as well. With the Holidays fast approaching, and the newspapers counting heavily upon the revenue Christmas ads garner, you can be sure that even the suggestion of a boycott will send shudders up and down the corporate spine of the Tribsters.

As I said, its legal, highly effective and painless to apply. No one store or advertiser holds a monopoly on any one item in this area anymore. Alternative outlets for almost any item are numerous, so our members suffer very little, if at all. They want to get down in the dirt and fight dirty, we can too! Hit them where it hurts the most...in their balance sheets!

Be careful fellow POs, times are a lot different today than they have ever been before.

Yes, coppers have been indicted before, but has the FBI ever investigated coppers because (GOD FORBID!) they searched people in a gang bar.

Now the public discusses how many millions of dollars should be given to MURDERS because no one let them go pee pee.

Juries give 1.58 MILLION DOLLARS to someone who was arrested for Disorderly Conduct!? What the hell is going on? Who the hell are these people on the jury?

The bar fights, SOS matter, and ever-living, never-dying Burge situation have created an all and out witch hunt. And everyone wants to see which of us floats.

Retired PO Here

Overconsumption of Alchoholic beverage has caused many tears to fall and much anguish over the years.


Besides the personal problems involved when someone feels the need to get shitfaced drunk are the problems caused by injuring others.
Bad decisions using the gun and drunken driving are two that come immediately to mind.

All kidding aside and all the "looking out for each other blue brother hood" we need to take an inventory of ourselves if we have a drinking problem.

And we dont need to carry on our conscious the death or serious injury or recklessness caused for others

I know of several PO's who either had an early demise or a long prison sentence due to their indulgences and lack of self control

Driving home drunk is only going to cause you/us problems.

THIS SUPERINTENDENT NEEDS TO BE A STRONG SPEAKER, AND ALONG WITH HIS COMMAND STAFF PUT TOGETHER A GROUP WHO WILL INVESTIGATE LAWSUITS TO PUT A STOP TO THESE INSANE AMOUNT THAT ARE BASED ON FALSE INFORMATION, AND PUSH FOR PROSECUTION. ON THE OTHERHAND WE CAN GET THE SAME POLITICAL HACK WHO FEEDS EVERYONE THE SAME LINE OF SHIT AND I CAN RETURN TO A HEALTHY COMBINATION OF PSP AND HOMEWORK WITH WINDOWS UP AND THE AIR/HEAT ON AS TO NOT ALLOW THE GHETTO CORNER "SLAP FIGHTS" AND JUKING TO BREAK MY CONCENTRATION.

Friend, you have some real issue if you think ANYTHING other than highly about John Graeber. You must not work, becasue any cop that works knows that he is the real deal. No, I'm not JG, no I do not work for him, I worked WITH him and I know.
He is what the merit selection process should turn up - great coppers. Not political, backstabbing, phone call having, no knowledge having, no experience having clout babies.

Get a clue!

Graeber is a nice guy. He is from a very political family. As a PO, about 12 years ago, he worked (?) the west end of 008. As a Sgt in 002 he was given HQ security before the new building was opened. He did a good job at HQ, keeping PO’s out of the parking lot. "Haven't worked for him in years," he doesn't have that many years. I didn’t know him as a LT, but he was not a LT for long. Now a Capt. He the real deal? I don’t think so.

How about a look into why the city finds it necessary to pay out millions and settle in BS lawsuits instead of letting the case go to trial and winning.

1. Juries are regular people, what do you think their opinion of the police is? In the past, most were probably stopped on LSD or XWay by traffic cops who required a deposit for giving breaks... now, who knows with all the bad publicity, they think we are all liars/torturers/beaters etc.
2. The same juries see the City as BIG $ available for the poor downtrodden plaintiffs, there is more likely a finding against the city in ANY lawsuit, the city only wins when there is a directed verdict by the judge.
3. We don't have great witnesses.
4. In some cases, like discrimination cases, the city has to pay legal fees whether or not they win, so once the cost gets above a certain amount, they settle.

That is why I always wear that US Mail Postman's jacket I bought at the garage sale when I go out drinking. They never bother a postal worker, they always think they will go postal on them. Well worth the 3 dollars I spent.

Its sad I remember when Officer Friendly came to my school when I was young and he said If you are a policeman you will have a great job with good benefits to raise a family. I was sold and wanted to be the police since. Now my dream is a nightmare! I dont want anyone to know Im the police. I take my uniform off as soon as I can and sit in a bubble for the next 16 hours until I go to work. Boy oh boy this is going to be a long career I just wish this was a dream and that fireman Fred came to school that day instead.

The media should watch for cops who speed and drive recklessly down the wrong way in courthouse garages. The reason the news media watches you is because you believe you are above the law and testalie in court. Drop and stop cases, yea right!!!! Were watching!!!

How did they know they were Cops? Well lets see.

1. uniform pants with pockets full of shit.

2. cheap sports jersey, almost covering up the uniform shirt.

3. Hogleg (gun)sticking out 6 inches from side.

4. all together in a group telling war stories, no one wnats to hear.

5. gold mini star hanging around neck.

6. parked ilegaly in front of bar or on the sidewalk with 10 or more FOP stickers on the car.

Now how in the hell did they know I was the Police.

News flash people, the average Joe can tell you are the Police just as you can tell who the thugs are.

Dont wear any part of that uniform if you going to stop off with the guys.

Get rid of those worthless FOP stickers on your car. Think about it when is the last time you did not stop a car just because it had a FOP sticker on it?????? And for those who love their FOP one sticker is all you need.

That FOP sticker does nothing more then make you, your car and anyone in it a target. Then you take that rolling FOP billboard home and park it in front of your house.

Do you put FOP stickers all over your house? Do you fly a city flag or FOP flag at home? No, and we all know why! Then why park a rolling FOP billboard infront of the house?

What has the FOP done for you lately???

Your nieghbors and friends already know you are the Police, why the hell would you want to advertise that to anyone else is beoned me!

If you like stickers so much, get one of those real cool CLERGY stickers that Meeks has on his car. Or better yet a chanel 7 news sticker, now that will throw them off.

Now what shall we do with all those extra FOP stickers. Lets stick them on the news vans and the paper trucks. Stick them on the beer trucks. Give then to the A.S.As and public defenders they are always asking for them anyway.

Or do what I do with mine, cut them up a throw them in the trash where they belong.

I just picked up a CLERGY sticker at the Speedway gas station. I am going to put it right next to my super secret HDO sticker and my Chevy stickers it will look cool.

Any Way have fun, watch your backs, and leave this job behind you, the second get into your personal car and pull out of the parking lot.

Congrats Nick and Jim!!!

If you are embarassed to be the police then quit.

I am so tired of you f-ing cowards!

I never wanted to do anything other than be a cop, not the junior police(subaurbs for u new tards)

This job was never a fall back plan for me. If u are so embarrassed then leave. You probably dont do dick anyways.

I am proud of my job and and still enjoy work(can I call it that?) after nine years with the city.

How about some of u guys jump on the home team for the big win!

Things arent what they used to be, ha! I was told that my first day and I hear guys with less than 5 say that now.

What is, like it used to be?

Learn how to write paper and u can do the same crap IMO as I did 9 years ago. I have not changed.

When did we become whiners?

As Murowski used to say, "If they call the police, either u kick they ass or someone goes to jail. You think this is the real world? This is a gymmmmm,these are walllllls, are you goin bend over and take it in the ass?

Seems like a lot of you do

New guys, never be afraid to pull your gun and remember you are never wrong. Last of all take shit from nobody.

Still young,still work and your God damn right I AM the CHICAGO POLICE.

SCC - please post my to-from as a topic to help out the dummys


TO: Department Members
FROM: Chickenshit anonymous poster


RE:FOP stickers/medallions and hanging hat-bands

R/O has noticed a high prevalence of CPD members visibly displaying identifying insignias relating to membership with the Chicago Police Department and/or the Fraternal order of Police lodge #7. It has become apparent that the current political climate has made off-duty police officers the target of surveillance by the media and the public. Said actions have drawn undue attention to actions that otherwise would have been considered "normal." R/O is requesting that all department members remove visual identifiers linking them with CPD or FOP from their personal vehicles.

You can't bring yourself to congradulate the good things some of "our own" do, and you don't have the class to just remain silent. You are exactly why this Dept SUCKS! We eat our own. Here it is the CPD getting asspounded in the media every day, and two of our own do good, and bring back a national title, and all you can do is insult them. You must have some very deep emotional scars; go back to your dark SRO apartment, drink the last of that bottle of cheap booze, stare at your gun and for once in your miserable, pathetic life do the honorable thing.
Congrats Nick and Jim!

Maybe they are both pricks.....maybe not. Either way, I congratulate them on winning their competition. Shooting is a skill and they obviously have perfected it.

You sir (I assume you're a he) are a jagoff!! You sound like a sourpuss do nothing to me. Does everything have to have a negative connotation to it?

I hope they only drank the good stuff! You could go outside any watering hole in the City and tag those leaving with being over the limit, especially since the threshold was lowered to .08%.

So this is news? Give me a break. Why are police officers being targeted? I'm not sticking up for those who have tarnished the badge, but off duty police officers have a right to unwind just like everyone else after work.

I hope you are kidding. If this is the way you approach your profession, plan on getting sued alot. Those days are long gone (they were gone before you got here.) This "inspirational"talk is only going to get some young copper jammed up.

By the way, when does the big game start, I can't wait to jump on board the home team? It seems we have been practicing for a long time now.

My sister who is a grad of Northwestern's journalism school says she thinks the "media" outside of Dugan's is someone in the graduate program there. They don't have the huge TV cameras that the station's do. Just a guess. Still dangerous though -- look at what NW students did for murders on death row...
