Rumor Mill in Full Swing

One of many:
  • Huge rumor coming out of HQ this evening. Da Mayor is going to make the announcement on Monday after the AIBA boxing tournament leaves town. The new Superintendent and 1st Deputy will be introduced. The latest rumor from a pretty good source has Grau as big boss and Dugan as 1st. This is a pretty good combo if you asked me.
And that isn't the only one. We have tips of an outsider taking over (Fong as the front runner from San Francisco). We have Maher as the insider winning the spot. The regular Keating as First rumors are everywhere.

We're sure some of it is agitators muddying up the waters. And someone pointed out a connection between a former Chicago exempt and the PERF people that, if true, really ought to raise a boatload of red flags for anyone expecting a fair and open process.

Remember, it's all BS until you see it on paper.

And when you see it on paper, it's still BS. Some boss who will do what the mayor tells him to do. We will still be without a contract, and we will continue to get screwed over by the media. Yawn, who cares.

Is it just me, or does naming Grau make Daley look like a bigger moron than ever? I've heard Grau is a good guy and I like the fact it would stay in house. But why reject him months ago and ask for more names? If he's your guy, then he's your guy because he is without question the best qualified right? So there would be no need to ask for more names in the first place. This would make it look like he settled for Grau, which I feel is unfair to the guy.

This is the best part that no one seems to understand. Mickey Fucking Mouse could be the next supt and Super Mario could be 1st. It doesnt matter!!! The day to day life of Joe Patroleman doesn't change. Guess what assholes, the 1st watch desk sgt in 007 is still that awful wheels of garbage Williams. She was there for Cline. She's there for Starks, and she will be there for whoever the next supt is. Once I make exempt then I will start to worry about who the next #1 boss will be. Until then stay safe, keep it real, and have your ears peeled for all the fun on Zone 6.

From the top down. all police should undergo I.Q. and psychiatric testing to include the Stanford Binet, the Wechsler and the Minnesota Multiphasic Personality Inventory (MMPI).

We have too many morons and sociopaths on the job already. No one would be shocked if Daley's pick would flunk them all.

Come to think of it, the mayor's track record, most notably with the LSAT and failed bar exams, cannot rule out that he too is a mentally dull psychopath.

We would just love to see Daley's MMPI scores.

Grau would be a good leader, and dugan heard good things this could work! But can they restore morale that is in the toilet? Will they support us and tell daley to take the puppet strings from their backs? Lets hope so! But again at my level I could give a shit who the clout bosses are!

This is obviouly BS. Don't know your source but it is bad. Applications are due to PERF today. Police Board or PERF will conduct interviews, do background checks and give 3 names to Daley. Don't look for Sup. until after first of year.

I agree with this approach,but it will fail for one reason.CORRUPTION.Plenty of depts and agencies USE these tests but its only a cover.The boards and merit commissions do not use the results,they still hire clout babies.

Sounds like Sgt Snethen informational bullshit.

Oh and when the Mayor makes these introductions, Jerry Finnegan will be standing next to the Mayor a free man and promoted to Sgt. too.

Give me a break, SCC, your worse than the old snoopy lady peeking out her window. At least she has some true information.

Does your source read the fuckin' newspaper? Grau wasn't picked in the first round, and Dugan is on the hot seat. Is your source a crossing guard. Asshat.

Sure. Right after Mayor Gavin Newsom and I take a handcuffed tandem swan dive off the Golden Gate Bridge wearing only black leather thongs.

I'll fly straight into O'Hare after I dry off.

In an earlier post, I reported to you of my long-distance phone conversation with Mr. Chuck Wexler, the executive director of the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF).

If PERF still wants to jeopardize its reputation by becoming involved in this CPD clusterfuck of clout and corruption, they have been warned.

Any PERF complicity in "the nationwide search" for the next CPD superintendent leaves you free to draw your own conclusions on the integrity (or lack thereof) of PERF.

I TALKED TO A SUBURBAN POLICE CHIEF THE OTHER DAY, AT THE HEALTH CLUB. HE STATED THAT HIS DEPARTMENT AND OTHER DEPARTMENTS THAT BORDER CHICAGO AND INTERACT WITH THE CPD ARE PRAYING ITS GRUA AND DUGAN. HE STATED IT WOULD SIT WELL WITH OTHER LAW ENFORCEMENT AGENCIES AT INTERACT WITH CPD.

Grau is part of the problem not part of the solution. Get an outsider in here.

Grau and Maher. That is really inspiring

Finnegan is full of it. The only bosses that may get in trouble are the Sergeants who were involved in his criminal behavior. The bigger fish would never condone such behavior EVER!!

Grau & Dugan are an excellent combo for this ailing Department. The ghetto Starks needs to retire and we need to shuffle the deck with quite a few exempts. Maybe we can finally have true accountability.

Nordstrom is not flexible when it comes to arrests for shoplifting. Have witness Nordstoms security demand arrest and sign complaints for a 2 dollar item.

So I wonder who made the call to Nordstrom demanding that they refuse prosecution???

Sergeants will follow orders from the commander. Including CR's and court deviations. Commander is aware of all activities in his unit. Ask his LTs. They freely admit he knew of activites. How could criminal activites go for so long without commander's knowledge? He is not that stupid. Interesting how everyone accused is cooperating?

perf also had the contract to run the search for the new OPS boss. the contract was extended to include the search for the new sup (see the contract for yourself on the city's website). im sure the search was very objective and there was no influence from the 5th floor.

Danny Dugan is a good man and a cop's cop. We would be lucky to get him as First Deputy. And for all you morons you insist on trashing on him, he is more honorable and has more integrity than all of you trash talking idiots.
