Rumor - Confirmed?

Someone actually witnessed an exempt member telling people the following, and then we got another e-mail with the same story:
  • ABC news crews working for 20/20 are currently in the city, following police cars and filming street stops.
  • Since they can't be everywhere, they have provided or made available cameras for use by neighborhood "activists" to film police activity in the neighborhoods.
  • They are looking for anything they can use to show a "Department out of control" type of atmosphere.
Don't be that officer. The old days are dead, gone and buried - don't let them bury you, too.

No.
More.
Proactive.
Police.
Work.

If you are a worker and get jammed, it's your own fault. Open your eyes. The city doesn't want police, they want armed babysitters to provide an illusion of security.

I don't claim to be the police anymore.

I'm a cross between a garbage man and animal control.

Sad, so sad that the media has become the papparazzi just to make a quick buck. With all the corruption going on in city hall, they had to pick on the police.

FYI for all the northwest siders and south west siders a car load of gypsies attempted to home invade an 86 year old man around foster/ canfield (berwyn) on 24 oct 2007 @ 1413 hrs, luckly he called out to his neighbor odpo who was outside and was able to chase off offenders 1 female and approx 4/5 males who fled in a white olds/dodge 9558687 which comes back to the southwest side. Of course 016 has no man power only paper car responded!

Has it really come to this? Man. This job is really not worth it anymore. I see friends in the private sector that make half what I do, but they work days, have every weekend off, every holiday off, and only work 5 days a week. Oh, and don't have liberal pukes following them around filming them at work. And if their bosses are incompetent clout babies, the company goes under. Man, this job used to be fun...

Is this department out of control? Personally I dont think so.

This department is a direct reflection of Politically connected, micro-managing city in which we work and live. Society has gotten the police force they have sue'd to get.

I spend about 5 hours of my day doing school checks, premise checks, a school dismissaland dont forget the CTA check. Then add lunch and 2 personals and travel between all those and you get the idea.

So as you see little time is left for proactive work, Traffic enforcement etc.

20/20 you can come follow me if you want to. You will be scratching you head wondering what police work has become in chicago.

So you see if I have time for all this crap- Chicago is ready for the Olympics.

Heard from a reliable source from the FBI that alot of heads from 025 are gonna roll... and has nothing to do with SOS nonsense. From what I hear, atleast apparently it is gonna basically be contained to more than a few Sgts and maybe a Lt., blue shirts will be limited to some time off, but I guess an internal audit found a lot of stripes have been holding slips when their guys are obviously not working (i.e., swiping credit cards 3 hours before checkoff at the local gin mill). This is theft and although the individual officer cannot be held accountable, (he has his Sgts permission and leaves a slip) when the slip is not put in it is an easy implication. The feds obviously arent handling this one but apparently through their investigation have been turning over nuggets to IAD and the States Attorneys office. And for whatever reason, 025 has been the sacrificial lamb. Again, the working folk have nothing to fret. However, if you have stripes and work/worked in 025 in the past 5 years, expect the worst... no word on indicting anyone, but expect quite a few headaches for a while leading up to who knows what... be careful what you say they may already know the answer. This shit is out of control! Just be careful!

You know what. Then fuck police forgiveness and police disgression. Normally, If the person or person I stop on a traffic or street stop is honest with me, polite, sorry for what they did, regretful and especially cooperative with information regarding a crime by someone else then I might be ept to look the other, turn the other cheek and let that person go. BUT KNOW, if the news media wants to pick apart the police department and critisize my every move, THEN 0 ZERO FUCKING TOLERANCE TO EVERYBODY. When people realize that we now give NO breaks whatsover and you get ever ticket, get every misd, felony charge on the book, you get your car impounded, dog seized, money seized, etc. They can blame it all on the news media. Normally, I'd say walk in the crosswalk, not in the street, dump the beer, put your dog on a leash, wear your seatbelt, take your high beams off while you drive, step on that blunt filled with cannabis, crack that glass cack pipe and seek help, walk away from the argument before you go to jail, etc etc etc. NOW ITS ZERO TOLERANCE. This will turn around and bite everybody and I mean everybody in the ass.

Simple answer: QUIT DOING STREET STOPS.

In a media that questions our right to defend ourselves when confronted with an armed criminal, how long do you think it would take for them to use footage of legit street stops against us. They already know what story they are going to put out (anti police), they are just trying to get some footage to go with it. After your legit street stop they might just approach the subject and get his "unbiased" opinion of what just happened and the legitimacy of the stop (brings to mind ops's tactic of interviewing an individual who resisted and fought with the police and lost (as he should) where he will almost always claim he was beaten without provocation). I am sure he will not fess up to being a gang member, drug dealer, or even that the police had a good reason to stop him. He was just coming home from church or teaching disabled kids at the YMCA and was a victim of the out of control police. They can even go so far as to approach the officer after the fact and ask why they stopped him. Since we are not allowed to talk with the media per general order, a polite "no comment" or no answer at all can be shown on the air to imply the officer is hiding something by not answering thereby creating a "story" even when there isnt one. We know that there are a great number of legit reasons to stop someone. You can bet that this will not be reflected in news. In other words, they dont care if you are doing your job the way you should be. They care about headlines and ratings, even at the expense of public safety (less and less police doing proactive policing= more crime) or your job. Dont forget to enforce those traffic laws when they decide to follow squad cars.
The writing on the wall keeps getting bigger and is impossible to ignore anymore.

Easy solution to this, dont do a dam thing! I will never pull a car over, never stop a bunch of thugs on the street corner, never chase an offender that might still be on scene. I will give them paper and advise them to obtain an order of protection, I will get my BS event numbers but I will never ever do anything beyond that. Im a DOG and proud of it, do you really think the city wants "working police"??????? Give me a break why kill yourself for a dope pinch or a burglary offender when you can sit in the squad all day and read the paper and listen to music???? Its all about the paychecks for me, this is a job nothing more nothing less. It is not a profession to have pride in because there is no pride left. The oath I took is BS, and my new oath is to get paid and do as little as possible. I am on my way and hope you tough cowboys realize the same thing before your fired for doing "POLICE WORK". Long live the lazy, do nothing, DOG Coppers!!!!!!

There's a big family of gypsies/con artists that live at either 102 and Kolmar or 102 and Kenneth in Oak Lawn. They go everywhere in the city. I can't remember their name right now, but maybe someone else knows the family name. If you are near a computer at work, look up Theft--Deception offenders from 2006-07 with addresses in Oak Lawn. The family name should pop up very obviously. I'm at home on furlo now.
In fact, one of the bigger con artists from the family was one of the fentanyl cases in late 2005-early 2006.
Now I remember---the Johns family. Pete Johns. Research everything in the computer on this bunch, addresses, houses, places hit. They hit with regularity in the spring and fall, when lawncutting and/or snowplowing isn't going so well.

So? If someone- not a credentialed journalist- comes up to you while you are doing your duty and they point a camera at you, you arrest them, confiscate and inventory the camera. On the inventory you note that ownership must be proved before release.

Let's see who shows up to get the camera.

How many time has Cortez Trotter been moved. EVERYTHING IN THIS CITY IS PHONE CALL...PHONE CALL...PHONE CALL...I only pray that the next Supt.is not a moron like Maher,just to play for the camera.The city needs to wake up,the 60's are over. As the rest of the country's major cities move forward...this city is still ran by aldermen so drunk with their own power and self serving interests that how can we possibly change when the very people who are supposed to regulate us are corrupt to the core.The epitamy of this City and County thumbing their noses at the law and all of us is the Beavers/ Stroger team who was formed by Mayor Daley.Lets not forget the H.D.O. What needs to happen is the Federal G needs to take over this city and completely turn it around.

-------------------------------------
and if I just answer my jobs in an appropriate manner? what is the problem? there is none, we miss crimes everyday driving down the street because you can't see and hear everything. there are two very thick books with thousands of laws in it that give us probable cause to stop people, and you also have the right to stop someone if it is reasonable to conclude that the person has, will, or is about to committ a crime.
ex.
p.o. "I'D LIKE TO GIVE A FLASH"
SQUAD "GO AHEAD"
P.O. "WANTED FROM THIS PERSON WITH A GUN 1 M/B, 16-20Y/O,5'09-6'00,SLIM, WHITE SHIRT, BLACK BAGGY JEANS AND GYM SHOES, LAST SEEN IN THE VICINITY OF 63/DAMEN"

WELL ITS NOT HARD TO GO TO THE VICINITY OF 63/DAMEN AND FIND SOMEONE MATCHING THAT DESCRIPTION AND STOP AND INTERVIEW HIM...EVEN IF HE IS NOW SHIRTLESS AND SWEATY BUT FITS THE GENERAL DESCRIPTION IT STILL IS REASONABLE.THE BIGGEST PROBLEM I SEE HERE IS THAT YOU HAVE PEOPLE WHO DO NOT HAVE ENOUGH KNOWLEDGE IN LAW ENFORCEMENT REPORTING ON LAW ENFORCEMENT DOING THEIR JOB. JOURNALISM IS A MATTER OF A JOURNALIST GIVING HIS/OR HER PERSPECTIVE, AS IS PERCEIVING THAT SAME JOURNALISM, SO LET THEM SAY WHAT THEY WANT. ALTHOUGH IT WOULD BE NICE FOR THEM TO SAY "THE AREA WE ARE IN HAS THIS MUCH VIOLENT,PROPERTY,OTHER CRIME" OR TO CONSIDER THERE ARE THOUSANDS OF CASE REPORTS FLOATING AROUND EACH DISTRICT WITH THOUSANDS OF DESCRIPTIONS THAT THIS PERSON MAY MATCH. BUT THEY WON'T OR THEY WILL AT THE END "WE DO HAVE TO MENTION THAT..." A 6 SECOND BLURB FOLLOWING A TEN MINUTE STORY. BUT INSTEAD THE POLICE MAKING SURE PEOPLE ARE SAFE FROM CRIME WILL BE SHOWN AS WRONG IGNORING THE LITTLE OLD LADY OR THE SCARED SINGLE MOTHER WHO ALSO MAY HAVE GIVEN US INFORMATION. SO REMEMBER EVERYTHING NOT JUST JOURNALISM IS A MATTER OF PERCEPTION, EVERYTHING.SO LASTLY WHO CARES WHAT THE MEDIA SAYS?WHO THE FUCK ARE THEY AND WHAT THE FUCK DO THEY KNOW? SHOW IT TO A BOSS, HERE BOSS THIS IS WHY I STOPPED THEM, OR HERE THIS IS WHY I PULLED THEM OUT OF THE CAR. DO YOUR JOB, DO WHAT YOU HAVE TO, TO STAY SAFE AND AS LONG AS YOU KNOW YOUR PROFESSION THERE ARE NO PROBLEMS UNLESS YOU MAKE THEM.SORRY ITS SO LONG BUT THERE ARE PEOPLE WE ANSWER TO AND 20/20 AIN'T ONE OF 'EM, AND STOP BEING SO PANICKY.

I heard they were doing an exposé on police bartenders, like Terry McMahon, at TR’s Pub on 111th Street. From what I understand, a film crew was out very late at night (or very early in the morning – depends on how you look at it), and they were filming TR’s. It appears the little red light on the video camera get Ritchie Scott up all night (well that, and a ton of booze) and he jumped right out and put a stop to the documentary. I guess he was heard screaming at the film crew: “Do you know who I am, and how I got promoted – twice!!?? I am a 19th Ward guy, and I know Molloy”…

Stay tuned

If you go to some of these bars and see media people drinking...film them. They all mostly go out after their broadcast and pound em down. Very easy targets. Post the clip on youtube. com with the link on SCC. I bet one station will post a story on someone from another station drinking then driving. Let the bottom feeders start feeding on each other.

How come they do not film the gangbangers and dope dealers who are out of control in these areas?

How come they do no do background checks of the people they are allowing to spy on us- you know the same gang members and dope dealers who want us to leave them alone?

Here is the secret of doing GOOD POLICE WORK in today’s modern liberal world.

If you are assigned to patrol, write at least 10 PARKERS a day. That’s approximately 200 a period. 1200 in a 6 month period.
(Save your ticket books as proof as the Special Order relates!)

By simply doing this stupid task everyday, it should keep the bosses of your backs. Unless an offender “jumps in the back seat” of your car, don’t do ANY pro-active police work. The hell with locking up people unless you have to.

Domestic with the offender on the scene? Give him a signal to run out the back door and put on a song and dance like you are trying to chase him then give the victim her VIN and advise warrants / Order of Protection.

Sorry, the time has come. So wake up and cover your ass kids.

Easy solution to this, dont do a dam thing! I will never pull a car over, never stop a bunch of thugs on the street corner, never chase an offender that might still be on scene. I will give them paper and advise them to obtain an order of protection, I will get my BS event numbers but I will never ever do anything beyond that. Im a DOG and proud of it, do you really think the city wants "working police"??????? Give me a break why kill yourself for a dope pinch or a burglary offender when you can sit in the squad all day and read the paper and listen to music???? Its all about the paychecks for me, this is a job nothing more nothing less. It is not a profession to have pride in because there is no pride left. The oath I took is BS, and my new oath is to get paid and do as little as possible. I am on my way and hope you tough cowboys realize the same thing before your fired for doing "POLICE WORK".

I really don't care what you do. Do you think that the citizens of Chicago owe you something? This is a job, at least do the part your able to do since your not into cops and robbers anymore. Do you think you sound cool or seasoned. You and many more of us wouldn't make it 8 hours a day in private industry. Do you think someone else cant do your job? Are the citizens picking on us? The media? You just sit and listen to your radio (against the rules and regs) and read your newspaper (also against the rules and regs), we will do the police work that you are incapable of doing. I am a citizen of Chicago and deserve and want the best police service I can get. No I dont beef about the police, but since I work here I DO know what you are doing and NOT DOING. Your the ones wrecking the new people. Your the ones inspiring new people to do nothing and try to get away with more. Finnigan and SOS, nor the bosses created this problem. I dont suggest people rat each other out, but I have never in 27 years experienced many of these problems because I let it be known ahead of time by example how I work!!! Yes I have been the subject of CR's that were unfair and unwarranted. I have had bosses that were jerks and have even been a jerk myself on a bad day. Your not cool, your just sad. We will work around you.

This should open the eyes of every police officer in the city that pins on his badge and holsters his weapon; they don’t want us to be the police. The following is a list of actions every police officer should take not to get caught up:

DONT’S

TRAFFIC STOPS
STREET STOPS
WRITE CONTACT CARDS
WRITE TICKETS
WRITE ANOVS
PROACTIVE POLICE WORK

DO’S

BACK UP YOUR FELLOW BROTHERS OR SISTERS IN BLUE
ANSWER YOUR JOBS!
WRITE ILLEGALLY PARKED MEDIA TRUCKS TICKETS
FOLLOW DIRECT ORDERS
TELL MAYOR “DICK HEAD” DALEY TO FUCK HIMSELF

How many times in our careers have we seen some piece of crap hanging out on the corner and from our experience and our gut instinct tells us there is something wrong with this guy. Then we proceed to stop him and find either a gun or dope? NO MORE!! This type of proactive policing is how shootings of CPS students are averted. Now these progressive liberal assholes from the media are going to follow us around and question our technique? Screw them. NO MORE!! Lets see how many more students will end up dead. Every time you get that gut instinct, just drive by!! That gun you could taken off the street will now become most definitely a murder weapon. YOU WANTED NO POLICE. YOU GOT IT!!!

BUT KNOW, if the news media wants to pick apart the police department and critisize my every move, THEN 0 ZERO FUCKING TOLERANCE TO EVERYBODY. When people realize that we now give NO breaks whatsover and you get ever ticket, get every misd, felony charge on the book, you get your car impounded, dog seized, money seized, etc. They can blame it all on the news media. Normally, I'd say walk in the crosswalk, not in the street, dump the beer, put your dog on a leash, wear your seatbelt, take your high beams off while you drive, step on that blunt filled with cannabis, crack that glass cack pipe and seek help, walk away from the argument before you go to jail, etc etc etc. NOW ITS ZERO TOLERANCE.

AND IF YOU CANT DO THAT, THERE A BUNCH OF REASONS TO IMPOUND THEIR CARS AND SEIZE THEIR CASH. I COULD CARE LES ABOUT MAKING MONEY FOR THE CITY, BUT I LOVE PISSING OFF A SHITHEAD WHEN I TAKE A CAR FOR WHATEVER. IF YOU'RE DOING YOUR JOB LEGIT, WHO CARE'S IF SOMEONE IS FILMING. HELL ITS LIKELY YOUR IN VEIW OF A POD OR SOME LIQUOR STORE CAMERA MOST OF THE TIME.

SO IF YOU WANT TO DO NOTHING, WORK LOCK UP OR THE DESK. LET SOMEONE WHO LIKES TO WORK HAVE YOUR CAR. I'LL BET YOUR THE ONE THAT COMPLAINS AND WHINES ALL TOUR, THEN HAS THE BALLS THE BITCH ABOUT NEVER GETTING ANY RECOGNITION.

"Of topic, all districts are short handed, so quit bitching about the 8th district... Whiny little bitch come work in 004 where we are more short staffed and in a rougher area... give me a break"

004 is desolate. If you're talking about the physical condition of the land where steel mills once dominated the area, then yes, 004 is rougher. The only thing actually worse in 004 is the stench that permeates 90% of that Godforsaken plot of ravaged land. As far as real crime and calls for service go, 004 is only a fraction of the 008th district. That's why the rest of the city ignores 004, we're trying to forget you exist over there in "West Gary."

OFF TOPIC !!!

OFF TPOIC !!!!

Does anyone know who the M/2 ,lives in the 5500 Block of sout Austin, drives a black SUV, I think a Caddy Escalade. Plenty of times I've seen him driving like a huge tool( I'm off duty ). Like a shithead, he has to be the first at the light, drives thru red-lights, to pass someone up - drives in opposing lanes of traffic. Crazy speeder, and if you try to get a look at him to see who's driving, he gives you "the look", then speeds off like a bitch. I ran the plate
(some time ago), he lives in 5500 block of Austin, italian last name. Oh yea, the most important thing - he has FOP medallion on back, and hat band on rearview mirror. The hat band made me think he was not the police. Only a certain set use that to identify themselves as P.O. and they aint 2's.
Back to this nut driver -I looked him up on the Dept listing - not there.
A criminal records check showed he was charged with a felony - I think it was "Bribery" or some official offense.

I can't remember the last name or plate #. I have seen him in the hood, but he drives like a tool, so I can't get the plate again. Want to attend the next beat meeting to see if the beat guys can curb his attitude. He's gonna hurt someone real soon.

Thanks for the help - 008 dist.

Reminds me of the time on the westside when we were hunting the killer of a PO. Everytime there would be any kind of radio traffic regarding operations the camera crews raced the police to the site (search, meets etc.). One pretty savy Cpt, (when there were real Captains) arranged with the tact people to broadcast phony meets etc. One of these "sites" was on a narrow street. The media vans pulled behind the first tac car. A squad pulled behind the media vans and can you imagine, the keys for both of the police vehicles got lost. Took about 2 hours for someone to retrieve the spares from the station.

The Media is very upset with the fact that we, The Police, have a way, via this site and the Internet, of showing how much full of BS they are. They are now in attack mode against us and use their airwaves to try and knock us down and make themselves feel important. They realize that their monopoly in the media is coming to an end and it upsets them. It makes them feel like they are brave and courageous when they attack the Police knowing that we cannot attack the back. They are ashamed that they do not have the GUTS to attack real criminals because it may put them in harms way so they take the easy way out and go after who who have the GUTS to tackle crime but have something to lose. The media is a bunch of cowards. There are no real investigative reporters left, just a bunch of watanabe cowards.

The Chuck Goudie expose on ABC7 is something the citizens of the City need to see. The powers that bee'z (STARKS/GREEN/BALL) [notice a pattern] find it neccessary to reduce a SWAT team that in fact needs to double in size and provide for Critical incident events. There are police departments that regularly provide up to 5% of their manpower to an Emergency Services Unit, yet CPD is at less than half a percent, yes less than .5% dedicated to readiness for terrorism, HBT call-outs, School violence incidents, or rescuing of downed officers (ala Det Joe Airhart)
Many of you guys on this blog could care less for SWAT officers and regularly mock them on this blog; but here's a good example of how the Shitty doesn't give a rats bunghole about your safety or the threat around us. They really believe we are not a target.
The brass of course will spin this expose to show that they are on top of things and trust me there will be an announcement for entry to the SWAT team; SOON !
If you apply you might as well take a loan for about 3 grand, cause they'll expect you to provide for your own gear. Another indicator that they don't give a F@#$ for you. Then there's the phone calls in the middle of the night to respond to jobs in your own car, ..etc.etc.etc.etc.
And to make things better, the SWAT interview will be held by RISLEY and CHISLEHEADSKY (SP), both of which haven't the slightest F@#$in idea what SWAT does and regularly attach anchors onto the program in an effort to stunt its progress.
Is it not important for the SWAT operators to inspect their prospective collegues? ---the ones that they will trust in the fight ?!
When it come to matters of SWAT, RISLEY and CHISELHEADSKY (sp) are about as competent as Mermaidman and Barnacle boy !

UPDATE: Apparently the States Attorneys office was in 025 front office earlier today nosing around and asking questions about time keeping procedures. They didnt have a warrant as far as the information I have (which came from an officer who works in the front office) and werent pressing to see anything, but were VERy interested in the policy in which time due is taken off a POs books, and how slips are accounted for, and where old slips are stored etc etc... only reasonable assumption is it is a prelude for things to come. They also were asking if these procedures were practiced city wide and were very concerned as to the time frame in which a Sgt has to turn in a time due request from the previous shift. Id say this should be a warning to all with chevrons. But we shall see. Be careful!

However, knowing how many people -- media included -- read this blog, do you really think that repeated posts like this are good for the Chicago police?

I have no idea why 025 is such a lightning rod for controversy. It's a mystery.

What isn't a mystery is why 025 has the worst group of sergeants in the entire city. The "inner circle" either micro-manage and nitpick, or they do absolutely nothing - except take turns letting each other work a half a shift.

The 3rd watch Aparachiks - "C.H.", "R.S", "W.M." and "G.C." - Apparatchiks are notorious for not backing up their P.O's and for being irritated if, and when, their "expertise" is called for. Hell they barely make an effort to listen to the radio!

"C.H." was supposed to be indicted last year because of some connections to a pawn shop that the feds were investigating. So far he's still around and up to his old tricks. He's the best Officer in the city - just ask him!

There are a few exceptional sgts in 025 - Olive and Al come to mind. You can have the rest!

Just saw the ABC 7 (I-Team report) by Chuck Goudie on the 10:00 PM newscast.

I thought it was informative. Many thought it was going to be a typical Goudie "hatchet job."

It didn't paint the officers in a negative light. It just made Dana Starks look like a racist "hater" who is funking things up!

The sad thing is this city is so unprepared for anything from a public safety standpoint.

I mean the LaSalle bank marathon last month was a prime example.

Another example, No Air unit. Ours doesn't count, a surplus helo kept flying with bandaids and bubblegum and staffed with "cloutbabies."

When many other large cities have several in the air at any given time 24/7.

Now causing irrepairable harm to SWAT team by mucking it up.

This city needs NEW leadership.

Other cities spend money on Air Units and SWAT teams!

Mayor Daley and the crooks on city council spend money on "hired trucks" and "politically connected sham minority contracting firms."

However, the I-Team has learned that perilously low staffing levels have resulted in the recent cancellation of a SWAT counter-terrorism exercise with security officials at Boeing headquarters in Chicago and the cancellation of regular SWAT team escorts provided to tanker trucks hauling lethal chlorine to the city's water treatment facilities.

SWAT insiders say six new officers were recently assigned to the unit but that none of them has homeland security or critical incident training. And in a few weeks, the department will begin taking applications from current police officers to join the SWAT unit... But complicating matters further is that until the personnel changes can be sorted out, all in-house police SWAT training has been put on hold.

Accept it and wait for the 1st and 16th.

It will get tossed,and its NOT obstructing.Just what we need is some legal genius arresting the media on a BS charge.

10/31/2007 09:50:00 AM

It doesnt take a legal genius to read:
720 ILCS 5/31-1

Something as simple as pulling behind a officers who are engaged in a stop with multiple suspects and exiting the vehicle pointing objects at them could be construed as obstruction. You have to be able to articulate how their presence and actions interfered with your stop. I was pointing out that it could fit the criterea and will be another added hassle to our jobs if this police hunt takes place. An arrest on this will not likely get past the approval of the WC not because a lack of merit, but because of the potential backlash that he could take from the higher ups if this was made an issue. If it got to the court level, the judges and states attorneys would throw it out, again not just on merit (remember the principal who was correctly arrested for making a false 911 call, judge tossed it and she sued and got her pay day).These days with frivolous lawsuits and lack of dept. support, I am not a fan of any arrest in which the arresting officer is the complainant.

Is he out of the country??? Is his computer broken??? Let's see, his career spans 008 tact -- when it was the slowest district on the southside, merit sgt, merit lt. and merit captain. What's wrong John, are you gun shy? Did you get use to posting comments patting yourself on the back and they went unchallenged. Not anymore. More details to come on his useless career as it is warranted -- when the bullcrap supporting him is posted....

OFF TOPIC !!!

OFF TPOIC !!!!

Does anyone know who the M/2 ,lives in the 5500 Block of sout Austin, drives a black SUV, I think a Caddy Escalade. Plenty of times I've seen him driving like a huge tool( I'm off duty ). Like a shithead, he has to be the first at the light, drives thru red-lights, to pass someone up - drives in opposing lanes of traffic. Crazy speeder, and if you try to get a look at him to see who's driving, he gives you "the look", then speeds off like a bitch. I ran the plate
(some time ago), he lives in 5500 block of Austin, italian last name. Oh yea, the most important thing - he has FOP medallion on back, and hat band on rearview mirror. The hat band made me think he was not the police. Only a certain set use that to identify themselves as P.O. and they aint 2's.
Back to this nut driver -I looked him up on the Dept listing - not there.
A criminal records check showed he was charged with a felony - I think it was "Bribery" or some official offense.

I can't remember the last name or plate #. I have seen him in the hood, but he drives like a tool, so I can't get the plate again. Want to attend the next beat meeting to see if the beat guys can curb his attitude. He's gonna hurt someone real soon.

Thanks for the help - 008 dist.

10/29/2007 07:54:00 AM

I was told by 811 they know him. He was a P.O. that was fired.

I hate to say it but all this back stabbing and goofy shit going on has started since the department only let college nerds apply for this job.
I cant believe a little bitch would post on this blog on how a sgt is taking care of his troops.
When I came on this job and the person you were working with had more time on the job it was automatic he drove, no questions asked. Now a days these 3yr wonders just take the keys without even asking you if you would like to drive.
All little rat pussies, to much college and not enough common sense!! Get rid of the 60 hr credit minimum to get on this job.

Where do you think that cash will go in this town? Dont worry it will be legit.

And to all who say "Let them film me" 80 + % of ghetto stops or radio jobs even where you have PC or a signed complaint that are filmed the footage can easily be edited to make you look like a cross between a Klansman and a rabid wolverine. It s a no win situation.

Thankyou for th kind words, it is few and far between. We chased a juvenile gangmember with a shag yesterdaya nd wehn we finally caught him he yelled and screamed "what is you badge number?" "you cant chase me, my teacher told us that you have no right to ask us anything!" This coming from a SD gangmember running through senior citezns yards with a bat. I am done running and I am done talking.
