The Search is Over?

  • Cop top 10 Police blotter . . .

    October 23, 2007

    BY MICHAEL SNEED Sun-Times Columnist

    Listen up! Sneed hears by the time Mayor Daley's top cop search is over, 10 applicants will be screened -- most of whom are outside Chicago.
"Most" from outside Chicago. So is Daley about to make the same mistake his father made before him by selecting an outsider? Or is he going to earn the continuing cynicism of the rank and file by choosing yet another insider who will preside over the slow agonizing death of this Department via "accountability," even though no boss is ever held accountable for bad choices?

I'm not really sure that the hiring of the last outsider, O.W. Wilson, was a mistake. My father, who was hired in 1954, told me that before Wilson came along, each district had only about 2 squad cars that were in horrific condition, a wagon or two, and everyone else was on foot........... Perhaps an outsider could at least put an end to the good old boys network. (He was Cline's guy, they were Hillard's people, etc)

Nice to hear that Dana told these asswipes aldercrooks that he is not giving names regarding the CR #'s. He even told them many of these complaints are bogus and made up by gangbangers. He was also concerned about Officers safety and more bullshit lawsuits. I worked with someone, who worked for Dana in 011 said he was a great boss. Anyone in 11 care to comment, just curious

Stay safe

What we need is a strong leader. We have enough puppets here, & look what they've done to our city.

If I was Dana Starks, I would be really pissed right now. Daley thinks he's "good enough" to fill in until he finds a Supt. yet not "good enough" to actually become Supt.

I would have told Daley that I'm not his whipping boy and to find a Supt. or to make me one.

If ou read any history of Chicago or biographies of Richard J. Daley, you will find that hiring OW Wilson was the worst mistake he made regarding the department.

Daley mistakenly gave Wilson free reign hoping he would be a responsible manager. Wilson broke the budget several times giving Daley fits. He also presided over a corrupt department by turning a blind eye to corruption. It did not exist. He ignored it.

He also ignored the guys on the street- the working cops. Wilson's only accomplishment was bringing modern management techniques to the department. That is all he was- a good manager.

We need someone who has worked the street and understands management. An outsider tells the rank and file- why bother to get promoted. You can't get to the top. We have the talent here in our own department. We just never utilze it.

This department is headed for the graveyard.... Until Commanders are held accountable like otehr departmetns are there is no way this department can hold officers accountable. Discipline should start at the top you know lead by example!!! Will Commander Yoshimura be disciplined for violating at least 3 department general orders and perhaps even one criminal charge of Official misconduct--Will County State Attorney charged a sheriff official who did simialr thing that the Commander did. This department is a JOKE and only getting worse....Good thing I only have 6 years to go

It is of my opinion that the "Top Cop" will come from Federal law enforcement. This is a last chance effort to keep the dept. of justice from over seeing the daily operations of the chicago police department.

I don't feel that this would be a mistake.The rank and file no longer trust the command structure of this dept. We really need a outsider to try and regain trust and morale of the rank and file. Do we dare say it? Yes, maybe promotional test that legit.

The department and the F.O.P. has split us apart into units to keep us angry at each other. I for one hope that the first order is to empty 35th street and replace every one of them with a civilian at a sallary of lets say $30,000.
This move would save the city plenty.

There is a problem with the word accountability? Just who is the Police Department accountable to? It is a function of the Executive Branch of city government, so are we accountable to the mayor?

Are we accountable to the city council, and if so, which factions? Those who want safe neighborhoods or those whose constituencies are the enemy- the gangs and dope dealers; oh and the political ministers.

Are we accountable to the communities we work in?

Are we accountable to the media?

Just who are we supposed to be accountable to?

We are all accountable, on a practical level, to someone- supervisors, who in turn are accountable up the chain. But as a whole, where does the accountability start and where does it end.

We have too many people looking at us and demanding too much information. We also have too many people who will give out information that should not be made public (Does Dana Starks ring a bell).

There are too many agendas at play and each one is getting a louder voice.

With all of this, just who is the Department accountable to?

Back to the Tow Scandal: Other than the Department’s rule which prohibits us from making a referral (we also have that – do not associate with felon rule – which certain members of the department are immune from or say “It ain’t fair”), what is the big deal if some guys made a buck based on a referral?

The person still has the absolute control over their decision on whether to take that service. If after hearing the rates for the proposed service from the business, the person can still decide to go in a different direction.

At details, when we block off the roads/ intersections, people asked me for directions all of the time, and I REFER them to an alternate route. Should I refrain from doing that in the future?

Is the main issue that the police officers receive money from the referred business? The Attorneys do it all the time. One time, I had a ton of garbage, so I left the garbage men a case of beer and $40 in an envelope. Can garbage men get fired for accepting this? Would it make a difference, if police officers were paid by means other than us currency, like cases of beer?

And remember, you can accept money from people according to our ethics video so long as it’s not more than $50 per year from the same person and the acceptance of this money does not affect your judgment.

Pffft.... yeah, like a new (outsider) boss will even matter!

Morale in this Department is already in the toilet. If it's even possible to drive it down any further, da Mayor and Alderceatures will certainly find a way. The vast majority of the men and women of CPD are honest and hardworking, but we've been beaten down by over-hyped nonsense like the Abbate and Jefferson Tap videos and REDICULOUS payouts for bogus lawsuits like this totally unproven screwdriver nonsense.

Watch for MASS RETIREMENTS at age 50. We've already slowed to a near stoppage of pro-active policing and ticket writing because doing police work (something we used to be proud of) only gets you bullshit CR numbers and lawsuits. Nobody wants this job anymore. I'm almost ashamed to say I'm the police these days, I just tell folks I work for the city and leave it at that. I can't wait to retire at 50 so I can collect the check I DESERVE for giving my heart and soul to this Department for 2 decades and getting shit on in return. Nothing but lousy contracts and benefits that are evaporating faster than a puddle in a desert... what's my motivation?

The 1st and the 16th are the only thing to look forward to now. I used to hear this from the old timers years ago and thought they were just grouchy old do-nothing dogs. But NEVER has this attitude been so prevailing amongst the troops, even people with just a few years on the job. I'd like to be the unapologetic workoholic I used to be, but no good deed goes unpunished. The selfless, dedicated, working copper has got it stuck up his ass too often to care about this city and it's people. I only handle my jobs and come clear in a timely manner out of respect for my fellow officers in the beat car, so they don't have to handle my jobs on my beat. Other than that, I can't give the extra effort anymore, because nobody gives a rat's ass. The days of "first gun - first to go home" are long over. If you still have any pride in what you do, do it for yourself, not because anybody gives a crap. I never thought I'd have this attitude, but sadly, it's been thrust upon us by liberal politicians, an overzealous and over-dramatic media, and the decline (or should I say "complete collapse?") of common sense of the general public. Let the glorified cameras do the police work now, the villified police officers are done.

I think SCC meant O.W. Wilson was a mistake as in it did not turn out so well for Daley, and not that it did not turn out so well for Chicago. Correct me if I'm wrong please SCC.

O.W. Wilson inherited a thoroughly corrupt CPD. In the 20's two Chicago police officers (one an inspector I believe) got into a shootout near the Chinatown firestation on Cermak. Their allegiances were to two different factions of the mob. I believe at least one, and possibly both, were killed.

It went on right up til O.W. He was brought on in immediate response to the exposure of Summerdale having an active burglary crew working 1st watch in the precursor to 020. They used CPD vehicles to transport loot.

Grandpa was a PO back then in the precursor to 004. According to him, prior to O.W. were the days of taking money on every traffic stop (pre-911). POs were out on the street with little direction and not enough pay, so they acted like they were in a gang of blue shirts, taking money wherever it could be found.

O.W.'s response was the 911 system. Put everyone in a car and tell the citizens to call whenever you needed the police. That kept people busy, and away from money-grabbing schemes for awhile. But, as everyone in the CPD knows, it also just leads to the squeakiest of the squeaky wheels in society getting greased. And it sure as heck takes the police out of any semblance of community policing. The only citizens POs in the late 50s and 60s knew were the ones who called 911.

Over time, the folly of 911 response-driven policing was realized, so they started creating all kinds of units that took officers away from 911 response duties.

Which leads us to where you are today. Taking officers away from 911 response duties has slowly led to the same devolution with no leadership or oversight, as shown by the SOS scandals and numerous tact scandals of recent years. It has also allowed the bosses to hide thousands of POs doing who-knows-what.

The root of the problem is promotions and management. Most POs shouldn't be assigned to merely responding to 911 calls. If anything, many of the current 911 calls shouldn't be handled with a police response at all. But if the police aren't busy doing that, they'd better be busy doing something, and you'd better have bosses who are actively supervising them to make sure they are contributing. But there are so few leaders in boss positions, that this doesn't happen almost anywhere where POs aren't responding to calls or aren't assigned to visible fixed assignments.

So the best idea for an outsider is for one to come in, re-evaluate and reduce the 911 responses, and then completely overhaul management and supervision to make sure the thousands of hidden do-nothings actually start doing something.

SOS and TRU are'nt really such a bad idea. Heck, if anything, they should start pulling the thousands of hidden POs and putting them in well-supervised mobile saturation units, or something useful like that.

A good start would be pulling records to show where EVERY PO is on any given day, to see how many aren't doing anything even remotely resembling police work. Any outsider with half a brain would recognize in half a second that half the CPD isn't even assigned to police work. Inside jobs, units, HQ, political jobs, you name it. Thousands and thousands hidden doing nothing like what they were hired to do.

Those that beef about "circles" probably arent in one because no one has noticed you, you are average or below average in doing your job, so get over it.Also, what makes you beleive that an outsider won't have to answer to the Mayor, the alderman and the "reverands?"

Starks was an EXCELLENT boss in 011. Unfortunately, many officers who post here don't want to see a black man in ANY leadership position, regardless of who it is!
I've seen many good bosses of color throughout this Dept. slammed here for some silly reason or another (he/she's a merit this or that/or an "uncle Tom"/forgot where they came from, etc. I guess that's why so few of the bosses read this rag, lots of negative stuff, and largely untrue, posted by people who are probably smiling when those bosses come into the office every day. Cowards.

Ron Huberman would clean this place up. Look at what he did for the training division. All the new equipment at the academy are because he cleaned it up.

I guarantee you that if he were SUP we would have a working puter in every car and pool cars would be drivable.

I cast my vote for Ron he knows we need to be in a nice set of wheels with a nice working puter even though he really did nt spend much time in one.

I'm not really sure that the hiring of the last outsider, O.W. Wilson, was a mistake. My father, who was hired in 1954, told me that before Wilson came along, each district had only about 2 squad cars that were in horrific condition, a wagon or two, and everyone else was on foot........... Perhaps an outsider could at least put an end to the good old boys network. (He was Cline's guy, they were Hillard's people, etc)

"Most" from outside Chicago. So is Daley about to make the same mistake his father made before him by selecting an outsider?

As in O.W. Wilson, who was no street cop but was what the department needed at the time. Timmy O'Connor use to return budget money to the city and the cops had to borrow and steal from the Board of Ed. to get typewriters and furniture. O.W. dragged the CPD into the 20th Century. Sure he broke the budget buying squad cars and two-way radios. Any Superintendent is temporary, the best he or she can do is make positive changes and leave the city and the department better off.

Maybe what we need now is an outsider. No one from inside will admit that they have been part of a failed program like CAPS or that the morale sucks which affects everything we do. An outsider might quietly kill CAPS and go back to the basics getting manpower out of the "elite units" and offices and back into the districts and on the streets.

Daley might….but he will want to control whoever it is.

Not a single person holding a command position has ever been demoted because of an accountability meeting. We claim to hold our command staff accountable but shit just rolls downhill. This department is a joke. I'm just used to it.

P.S. Why do we have 50 alderman spots? Why do we have mosquito tax abatement districts? Chicago, Cook County and the State of Illinois make up the most over-governed, over-taxed and overtly corrupt entities in the entire Union. The media plays a role in that as well by feeding liberal bullshit to the uneducated masses! Keep people stupid and they will always give up their rights!

O.W. Wilson was nothing more than smoking mirrors from the old man for the public. He couldn't control CPD. The only thing he was good for was the cadet program he introduced and the early years of giving the machine problems because he was hard to control being an outsider. In the end they got him too by using his heavy drinking as a tool of control. All this outside or inside talk doesn't mean shit. This department is ruled by one perosn the mayor. It is his lack of support towards us in the media that has the "The Molloy Merit Angels" changing this job. Its not a Cline thing Hillard thing or merit thing. Its a mayor media thing and he has chosen them over us. Plus with cameras EVERYWHERE what do think is going to happen to this job. Every thing we loose today will never come back as vid and audio technology improves. Police still took money under O.W. until store owners C.C.T.V. systems caught P.O.'s taking what they wanted from the burglary call then writing it up already gone. The traffic hustle went on long after he O.W. came. Even the Mayor can't bring this job back if he wanted to which i doubt he does. We all know every thing a working P.O. does looks like shit in the eye of the public when caught on film. You think the little man is going take on that for us? CPD is dead due to those who hate us and the cameras they have to catch us do anything that can be taken as wrong. Name one headline outside of SOS that would have hit the press if not caught on tape? 60 70 80 90 made up there stories when it came CYA. Until the early 90's no one had to worry about what is jamming us up now. So no matter who the next sup is this job is dead if you want to be what CPD once called the real police.

I just returned from the CAPS dinner at the Museum of Science & Industry.
Daley, Sparks & Vance Henry spoke. Sparks kept mentioning god & blessing everyone over & over.
It's not that people don't want a black supt. but Starks seems to be trying to get the south side ministers behind him. I've never figured out why anyone thinks they have any power, as their communities have some of the highest crime rates. Lots of good all that praying does!
My guess is than it will be an outsider under the theory that only an outsider can come in & break up the cliques. Sort of like Bratton in L.A. He had problems at first, but seems to finally getting somewhere.
Daley's speech kept mentioning that there are serious problems, but they'll be fixed.
Henry of course just bullshitted, he's excellent at that.
The woman from Allstate [who apparently paid for this thing] also spoke, she kept referring to him as "Lance".

That is TEN. The number after 9? Maybe you ran out of fingers.

And the original Mr. Ned wasn't Fraizer Thomas... But maybe you thought Cuddly Dodley was Ronnie Huberman since that is what you two do together.

Huberman won't come back to CPD as Sup because he can't bring his "mommy", Barbara McDonald, with him. She already retired once from the CPD and is pulling down $160K at CTA, while getting a sweet CPD pension. I hear he doesn't take a step at CTA without McDonald and Karen Rowan holding his hand. (Rowan's getting $150K from CTA, plus CPD pension. She'd have to stop receiving CPD pension if she returned, so that's unlikely)

And I'll tell you all this; He's old school, and is not racist. I don't know where you people come up with this information, especially since everyone calls him uneducated, and racist with out a single example.
I have personaly seen him take care of MANY white officers, that were jammed-up, or had personal issues. He had the opprotunity to sink many policeman that erred in their ways and didn't.
G.E.D.> So what. Most of the officers from the late sixties and early seventies generation hold only a G.E.D., hold rank in this department, and do quite well.

Every Command position takes care of their own; Blacks, hispanic, or whites--Hell whites divide themselves by heritage!

Someone here spoke up that starks actualy stood up for us publicly against the alderman.

We didn't here one word from any white boss against that stupid street sign.

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.

She work C and C (confidential and corrupt for those of you who don't know) for the bureau for the last 15 years and will be retiring from that position with her 20 to take this spot if they do offer her.

I also sat through his leadership and ethics classes in academy. He preached religion, abortion during leadership class. Cline sold his book to recruits and his ethics association. One instructor sold real estate and insurance to recruits. Unbelievable. Never saw sergeants in academy also. Some HRI's always favored young female recruits. Really took care of them. The academy is like a circus. Some instructors really care and others go through the motions. Nothing is consistent. I wonder if Tobias really knows what is happening in academy?

He looks good and in shape. But quality of training is questionable. Fix academy before being promoted. Religion and real estate with recruits have no place in academy. I am surprised reading this blog about academy. I thought they had a well trained and ethical staff? Possibly search for qualified instructors? Tobias is capable of turning academy into a first class training facility.

He has to play the game just like the rest of the bosses do. Give the guy a break each one of us has been guilty of siding with our own race (even when we shouldn't have) The man was left a pile of shit and you can't expect him to change things knowing he is not going to be "the guy". The Irish have been more racist and clickish than any other ethnic group on this job. Just look at the amount of Irish misfits who are bosses on this job. Daley himself is an inarticulate stuttering Irish Bridgeport prick who can barely put a sentence together. Before you clowns pass judgment on Starks, look at the history on this department....

Tobias is the real police. He is smart in shape a real marine. Uasshats dont have a clue. Look what he has done to the academy. He put in the new gym. He runs with every class. Has gone to the FBI Academy. He should be the next Supt.

The "real police" my As@!
He hasn't done sh*t to the academy.
The improvements came from the money that was supposed to be used for a "NEW" facility and the 5th floor at city hall decided that they wanted to use that money for the olympic bid. They then sipioned off some to "improve" the academy. The gym was paid for by the Park Dsitrict. They will be getting a sattelite office to use for Skinner Park at the academy.
Tobias does run with every class = ONCE before they graduate! He cannot run the academy well - look at the recruits, they are running the show - they walk around in whatever uniform they want; walk around with coffee, juice, food; walk two to three abreast in the hallways; never address anyone walking down the halls; females with makeup,' finger nail polish; hair worn anyway they want; males the do not shave; come late, leave early; some don's show up at all and are taken care of; there is no discipline and one wonders why there is a mess on the street and in the districts. Look at the academy! It is a JOKE!

Maybe with the way the academy is run is why the Dept is so F'd up?
I remember the plastic badges we wore thats how Old I am
Back then you would get your ass handed to you for just a minor infraction
Maybe they could put the females in skirts on the street if they look that good

"This city needs to wake up. Even Daley knows this... he's going through Hewitt & Assoc. in Lincolnshire to figure out how to trim the fat. Only I don't see why he even had to hire a firm to do this...
