Guess now we'll have Sup that will submit to and pass the FBI clearance.

A quote from the NYT by our soon to be new boss re: the terrorists that were planning an attack on Ft. Dix in NJ:

"Today we dodged a bullet," J.P. Weiss, the agent in charge of the FBI's Philadelphia office, said at the news conference. "In fact, when you look at the type of weapons that this group was trying to purchase, we may have dodged a lot of bullets."

"We had a group that was forming a platoon to take on an army," he said. "They identified their target, they did their reconnaissance. They had maps. And they were in the process of buying weapons. Luckily, we were able to stop that."

Bet Monique will be looking for a new job.

It is OFFICIAL, the feds are running the CPD. An outsider! holy Shit. Well i have mixed emotions. Anyone that was born and raised in the city knows what its really all about. We KNOW the racial thing and the BS spewed by the reverends and the ghetto thugs. Outsiders are less likely to know or understand the way Chicago is and always has been. On the other hand that can be a good thing if it means the incompetent bosses that have been promoted on clout may now be shit out of luck. I do like that he is a former military guy and might bring some form of discipline back to the academy. Im tired of these cocky college grads coming out of there with no discipline. Hope they get back to a little bit of the physical shit and some good screaming & yelling. I guess we have no clue what to really expect as this is new to all of us unless any of u old timers that refuse to retire were here for OW Wilson. I respect you guys, but damn retire already and enjoy your life. I guess we will see what happens, we can at least give him a shot. I think it will do something for moral to some extent (although prob very little) since we all expected richie was going to appoint one of his black reverend backed boys. But then again, richie doesnt deal well with people that dont kiss his ass so im sure not too much will change in that regard. Well lets just see what happens, it definitely is a new day in CPD history, shortlived as it may be. I give it until June to see what this guy has planned and then i will make my decision. 6 months seems fair, by then we will know if he is truly his own man with good ideas and supports the job we do or if he is just another puppet on a string for richie and kissing all the reverends asses. Unfortunately, i WAS born and raised in chicago so until he proves otherwise im going to guess its the latter.

I hope some major shake ups and a lot of retirments are coming soon. A complete overhaul of the dept. is needed. Redraw the districts reassign the reponsibilites of the various Bureuas Dump every merit position boss Malloy scattered throught the dept. Start training the P.O's and hire and promote we are way short. Some new equipment like cars andcomputers that work would be nice too.

Of course she was right, she gets spoon fed any info concerning the department. Who is the First Deputy going to be? probably black to appease the dimestore reverends.

The answer is probably Williams, but is it Charlie or Gene? I would also watch for a mass exodus of top brass now, don't blame them, if they weren't good enough to be considered for the top spot then they surely wil be heading out the door. The new guy is a fed so get ready for a huge paper trail on everything, the city better start planting alot of trees in Grant Park.

"In December 2003, John Roberts, the third highest ranking official in the FBI's disciplinary office, writes a memo about FBI Assistant Director Robert Jordan and Deputy Assistant Director JODY WEIS. The memo claims that Jordan and Weis were overheard saying that (FBI S/A Robert) Wright's second press conference would give them an opportunity to 'take him out'. Roberts also refers to an e-mail from a higher up in the Chicago FBI office asking for permission to do a media smear job on Wright. Roberts claims that Jordan and Weis are misusing the FBI's disciplinary process to silence and punish whistleblowers like Wright."

Funniest news story today:

Rodney "can't we all just get along" King was shot while standing on a San Bernardino, CA street corner.

After being shot HE RODE HIS BIKE HOME to nearby Rialto, CA and called police.

They arrived and found everyone in the home, including King drunk and UNCOOPERATIVE.

His wounds are not considered life-threatening. Investigation continues.

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

Once a piece-of-shit..always a piece-of-shit. Isn't this the same guy who won millions of dollars in a civil suit after being beaton by police in 1991? And now he's on foot? No car? He was on a bicycle!

Unless you're Lance armstrong, anybody over 30 who is riding around the hood on a bicycle is dirty!

To bad he didn't die. Now he will cost the tax paying public more $$ in government assistance to cover his medical costs!

I have a long time on this job and I like this choice so far. After all of he goofing around by SOS, some off duty guys ending up as criminal cases it is no suprise that this choice was made. The last and only other out-of-city choise was Orlando Wilson. As much as eveybody moaned and groaned about Wilson he did bring this department out of the 19th and into the 20th century.

At least this is someone who apparently speak to the public, is less than 400 lbs, hopefully will not jump to conclusions as previous Supts. did or hang aroung with outfit guys or keep them on the payroll with the help of the head of IAD. Now all of you factions can stop bickering cause neither of your guys or gals got the big job.

I wish him luck and hope he does notget caught up on the city hall crap that has taken down each supt in one way or another.

RIALTO, California (CNN) -- Rodney King, whose 1991 police beating sparked widespread rioting in Los Angeles and other U.S. cities, was recovering Thursday after being slightly wounded by gunfire.

Rialto, California, Police Department Sgt. Don Lewis said King was grazed on his face, arms, back and torso. The wounds were superficial. A shotgun was believed to have been the weapon used.

We can all be assured of one thing. If you screw up you will be going down. No more looking the other way. Everyone will be in the same boat. On the other hand lets see how far he goes when picking people for exempt spots, see if he backs down and gives in. Whatever he does, he's got no ties to others on this job that owe each other favors. Hell he might even put more cops on the street instead of forming more specialized units stripping the districts. I figure it will take him a few months, maybe 6, to figure how this department functions. Bosses won't be moved immediately, he'll give the bosses a song dance about not to worry about your spot just do your job. Then after a year when he finds out how incompetent some of these bosses really are he will ax them. The new broom will eventually clean better than the ones on this department.

Does this mean with somone from outside the department that we will finally be able to end all the bullshit event number generating crap that does nothing but create a event number?

Does this mean we can end the bullshit seatbelt mission that are only done to generate money for the city?

Since the new sup comes from the FBI does this mean we can have a 24 hour cooling off period that they enjoy after shootings?

MOST IMPORTANT, SINCE HE IS GETTING $300,000.OO A YEAR DOES THIS MEAN WE WILL GET A RAISE THAT WE DESERVE AND THAT IS NOT NEGATED BY RAISES IN HEALTH CARE, COST OF LIVING, ETC?

Speaking of money, why the fuck does he get $300,00.00? Do not get me wrong if he can get it take it, but this is the problem with this city and county. He is supose to assume command responsabilty for emergency disasters.

Well before a few years ago when Daley decided to give Trotter this bullshit postion because it was realized that he was not qualified to run the CFD was that not the responsability of the Sup in conjunction with the Commish of the CFD?

So not it reverts back to that but this guys gets another $120,000 a year to do a job that has already been done by every other Sup and Commish before until the Reverands spoke and got Trotter the bullshit job.

It must not be that important since the post has been vacant for over a year.

He was quoted in the Scumtimes "But, if they’re doing their job and they’re working within the framework of the law and the policies of this department, I will have their back 100 percent,” he said.

That remains to be seen. Like I said I have a strong feeling this is a good thing for the department. Just a piece of advise Superintendent; dont cave into these aldercreatures and reverends. Most of them should be in prison! Dont cave into the race card, they will use it everytime, without any justification. Dont advance General Orders, based on the media. Do whats right for your troops. We havent felt like police officers in a long time!!

Kudos to headhunters David Gomez and Associates, the Police Executive Research Forum (PERF), Demetrius Carney and the Chicago Police Board for scouring the nation and finally landing Jody Weis as Chicago's top cop for a mere $300,000.

Wait! You say Gomez & Co., PERF and the Police Board had nothing to do with it. Daley just picked who he wanted.

I just got off the phone with my grandma and she has agreed to be the new Supt and she only wants to be paid $275,000 a year!

She has all of Weis' qualifications:
1. She has never been in a patrol car.
2. She has never been a police officer.
3. She has no idea what a patrol officer faces on a day to day basis.

She can start Monday after her Bingo game is over!

New Superintendent on Channel 11. He stated the first thing he would say to us is "hello". He also said he has never been a policeman and does not claim to be. He said he does not know what it feels like to approach a car at 2 o'clock in the morning. He feels police officers are heroes. He is going to select his own staff. He feels the Abbatte video is horrific, I agree. He understands that policing generates complaints.

WOW! Just imagine, a legit guy that has no allegiance to anyone, clout will no longer figure in the formula. Probably has a contract and has been given full reign by Daley.

In 6 months this poor bastard is going to say "What did I get myself into?"

Wait until the Mayor goes berserk and throws him out of his office, or the Police Board meetings when he get call a white mother fucker and must sit there and remain mute.

The best is going to be if Dana cannot control the Reverends in his new capacity.

This is going to be very interesting guys.

Dear Mr Civilian Superintendent,

I am not sure if you realize this but the mayor would have hired anyone with the "former FBI" title so the feds would not take over the police dept. like they did in LA. Although you do not realize this, but you are already a pawn in the mayor's game. It is good you have the name JODY because you are the mayor's new bitch!

You will be expected to be a good boy for four years, then get a better job in the private sector. You also don't realize this, but the four short years you are here will age you 10-15 when you realize you have sold your soul to the machine. I wish you the best of luck as the new PUPPET. You may even want to buy the old bosses uniform because you will be able to make four full new uniforms, including ties, from his reefer. This message is no way an insult to you, but to show you how fed up the rank and file are with the machine.

I actually hope you are working as an undercover FBI agent playing the new supt. to nail hiz honor. They will make a movie about you. I will play Seiser. Please wear a wire when meritorious selections are discussed.

Good luck and realize your sane life will never be the same.

Mumbles looks like he's been sleeping in a cardboard box under Wacker Drive.

Lately, he's looked dis-shelved and in need of a haircut but at the news conferenced he looked one drink away from a homeless person asking for spare change. Richard the II looked exceptionally clusterfarked.

The FNG, J.P. deserves a year.

Just looking at him, he strikes me as one of two types of guys: One a kiss ass or two a covert kind of guy who's going to be doing low key ride-a-longs to see police work in the trenches to aclimate himself to the department from the ground floor up.

I hope he's the right guy.

HMMM....A thought just occured to me.
Head of OPS or what everythey call it this week- FED
Head of the Inspector Generals Office- FED
New Sup- FED

3 FEDs heading up 3 high profile positions. Now that just begs the question WHY. Could it be that Ritchie was visited by a representitive of the U.S. Attorney Generals Office and was told were watching you? Clean it up or were gonna do it for you. So Ritchie hires the Feds with marching orders to clean up the corruption etc?

Wonder if FEDS-HEIMERS is a thing of the past?

Now we also have Clines people, and Starks people. With the new sup being the dark horse outta right field- heck not even in the stadium. He knows nobody, owes nobody can you imagine the line at the office door? I imagine they are gonna set-up a "Take-a-number" machine by the door. So the bottom line here is that we may be WITNESSING THE DECLOUTING OF THE POLICE DEPT!

How many of the ??? number of exempts or LT's are sitting with a food chain list in hand trying to figure out who's gonna retire or who's gonna get dumped. This may be a bad thing as we all know that there are alot of bosses out there who would be mediocre(sp) sgts at best. (Adam this who thing maybe good for you)NOT!

So to bring this full circle- maybe just maybe we have just received what several SCC contributors have been asking for...Federal Oversight.

Friday is transfer order day. Danas last hurah. So if you are one of Dana's Dollies, and not on the move list. SORRY

Personally- I hope the new sup has cojons the size of a pine-apple and is hung like a Mountain Yak. Bring back a haircut standard, and a uniform standard.Makes the changes that need to be made. Have we gotten more smoke and mirrors, or a city hall puppet or is this gonna be a true reformer a.k.a. promotions based on examination not proclaimation? This will be evident when a new First Deputy is made.

Signed
Conceptual Futurist Theorist

p.s. The Feds have always liked "Community based Policing not Chicago Alternative Policing Strategy. Hence- Could TRU be redeployed back to there units from which they came??

p.s.s. If J.P. is just a hatchet-man he wont be here long, and could we see another ST Valentines Day Massacre? (Rumor has it he is looking at residences on Clark St next to a garage.) Let me say this again are we going to witness the DE-CLOUTING of the CPD.

Two Philadelphia P.D. sites to check:

I did a post earlier on Domelights regarding Weis after I received an email from a reader here at SCC who also reads my blog.

Not much info from the PPD in the thread, but don't hesistate to sign up at the forum and ask questions as there are a great bunch of men & women in the PD who will help in any that they can.

Recently a few members of the Washington, DC PD joined the Dome to answer questions regarding Ramsey and helped answer their questions.

One hand washes the other...

The forum works a bit different than the blog set up here, as you'll have to sign up with a user name and an email addy, but pick anything that doesn't identify you at all and of course use a generic email account, such as Hotmail. Just as your privacy is valued here, it's the same way at the Dome, and I can vouche for that, as I have been a member there since 2002.

What you'll have instead is dumbasses like allison schloss, who just sues the department or goes on the medical for the 6 months before the test. use your head! the problem isn't merit, the problem is how merit is abused to shelter the dumb AND lazy! I know lots of good coppers, who don't really have "book smarts"; but would make great bosses. I also know of more than a few useless bosses (gene dumbowski= moron)we have now that made it off the test, by working midnights in 18 and studing for 2 years. They've never been the police, and then come into 11 and try to tell the workers, what time it is. coppers in working districts know they cant compete with that, were busy locking up fools and getting the heads for the pretty newscasts. besides, even if you got rid of merit, they would find another way (ie dana starks' invite only study classes), give me a break. Let's fix the merit system and make it for what's it supposed to be about; making street smart coppers bosses.

Keating will stay, get another bump up but won't be the first, he isn't a black, nuff said on that.
Sodini is going nowhere, he is young. Watch for Gene Williams or Tina Skahill to be the new 1st Dep, can't see Grau wanting it or staying either but who knows.
Don't expect any new equipment or cars, the city isn't going to magically make money appear just because this guy is here now, the districts will not be re-drawn, the Alderman will not allow it under any circumstances; it will be business as usual in that regard. The new guy will try to shitcan Cronin, as he should, but will be rebuffed by Daley, who reveres the man for whatever reason, he was a good Gang Specialist, that's it.

Good luck if you do leave the public payroll and enter the corporate world,,,remember this though: They expect hard work and results, or you are history.

Woah take it easy tough guy. As far a quiting why would I do that?? I go to work, watch movies on my laptop, surf the web on my laptop and blow off every job. I stay down as long as possible and go home knowing that I didnt do a dam thing for this city. The best part, you ready for it???? I still get paid as much as the "working police". Go save the world hero, and tell all those young ladies at the bar how you are the real police! hahahah what a sucker, this city doesnt care and in turn I dont give a rats ass what happens in this dirty city. My motto "not an ounce of work out of me. Not in this city not in this department". Woof Woof Woof.

Huge News!

I just got off the phone with my grandma and she has agreed to be the new Supt and she only wants to be paid $275,000 a year!

She has all of Weis' qualifications:
1. She has never been in a patrol car.
2. She has never been a police officer.
3. She has no idea what a patrol officer faces on a day to day basis.

She can start Monday after her Bingo game is over!

>>Please! This guy is going to be another well groomed firgue head with a college degree, who only testimony to anything is expressing to the public what the real working people has done and taking credit for something that he is ill equiped to do himself,,,his background shows that he has a vindictive nature with backstabbing and smear jobs as his modus operandi. This is still CHICAGO, don't forget that, the more it change, the more it remain the same. Different players with different agendas.....and guess what? They all have favorite peoples that thy want to take care of.......so we will have a new group of people's with SPOTS<<

This is all true. But what has apparently gone over your head is that he is not yet beholden to or friends with anyone in the CPD. Imagine that. On his first day on the job, he comes in and doesn't have any friends to offer a spot to. He gets resumes and organization charts and manpower allocations and realizes how absolutely screwed up things are. And his public mandate is already to fix things.

So you tell me, who even knows his phone number? Does Daley have more leverage over him for the next year than he has over Daley? Because if he walks within 12 months, it won't turn out good for Daley.

So please think about this, as its something neither you nor any other current member of the CPD have ever experienced. The guy at the top does not have any friends, or old partners. He does not belong to the same clubs or local political organizations as anyone else on the job. He has never done a favor for one person in Chicago, nor has a person in Chicago ever done a favor for him.

Every word I said was true. This is the end of everything you've known. It will take some time to sink in for you and some of the other shell-shocked survivors of the last 40 years of incompetence and corruption. But this is the end, for now, of everything you've known.

I also know of more than a few useless bosses (gene dumbowski= moron)we have now that made it off the test, by working midnights in 18 and studing for 2 years. They've never been the police, and then come into 11 and try to tell the workers, what time it is. coppers in working districts know they cant compete with that, were busy locking up fools and getting the heads for the pretty newscasts.

Typical know-it-all one-rock hero from 011, going to come on here and bash a great guy, a guy who was doing this job before alot of you were born and before the rest of you had hair on you nuts. Gene wasn't in 018 studying, he was in the D unit for years, when he tells you how to do things it's because he knows. I know you guys think you are narcotics experts because you sit in trees and watch dude sell dope but anything outside of that other than domestics and you are lost, or feel it is beneath you, you get good supervisors like him and Captain Kup to keep your dumb asses out of trouble; I know I worked there and saw it first hand, then was smart enought to leave when the chance arose. Kids.....

my advice is this.

Ride along in a beat car at night in all parts of the city.


Have him put on some blue then
perform a number tasks to include: a SS, TS and EL check. Go to person shot, man with a gun, or a robbery in progress, not to mention a Domestic Battery. Go to lock-up with the drunks, and search a street bum.

But he must deal with the yuppies up north, hear their fing mouth run.

If you think anythings truly "changing", your hair gel needs "changing".

Daley is hoping this guy will be enough to head off the Justice Department putting the Chicago Poleeses Department under a Consent Decree like other large U.S. cities and being told by "the G" how to run the Poleeses Department....

Nothing more or less.

We will continue to work for clout baby retards. Get over it.

Nothing is gonna change. Daley wouldn't hire somebody who he thought MIGHT mess with his patronage/clout/contol.

Don't be naive.

I see a few recently appointed Commanders moving up again in the coming months, maybe before Spring, as the new Supt. puts together a totally new "inner circle" to get his word and will spread outwards. Look for Skahill and E. Williams to fit in there as well. Look for a new spot for Cmdr Rivera (025) also, he would also be a good guy for the incoming Supt. to latch onto.

I hope some major shake ups and a lot of retirments are coming soon. A complete overhaul of the dept. is needed. Redraw the districts reassign the reponsibilites of the various Bureuas Dump every merit position boss Malloy scattered throught the dept.

I pray that some day your Father,mother, sister or child doesn't need the POLICE and someone like YOU shows up (or drives by and pretends not to see them)
You see, REAL POLICE officers don't do what they do for the city, or their boss or the mayor.......they do it because they swore to protect the weak and innocent from evil savages and to help those who can't help themselves.

Hey, new Supt., psst! You can save a whole bunch of money in this Dept. by eliminating several command positions, like fugitive apprehension, vice, general support services, gang intel, DOC.
There are more than a few CIVILIAN positions left behind by the old Supt. that you may want to axe also. Oh, and you won't need SGTS. for drivers down at Hdqtrs.
BIG waste of money. Put them in Districts, where they are needed.
Many of those exempt positions I mentioned earlier in this post can be managed by a CAPTAIN, as commmanding officer. It was done that way in the past. Get out your knife, sir, and begin SURGERY!!

Well, not everyone is going to work, and we'll have to see what happens with that. But, if in 12 months you or I could look at the CPD and think there are honestly 10 exempts who are capable of handling a true disaster (riot, terrorist attack) sua sponte, than the leadership of the CPD will have improved by 500%.

If we can look around and see him demanding progress on bosses, and demoting them though they are the friends of someone's friends, than the leadership of the CPD will have improved by 1000%.

It really does start with that. This guy has more leverage over Daley for the next 12 months than Daley has over him. Really, he can do whatever he sees fit to do.

Even if somebody wanted to put in a phone call to him, nobody knows his number. I'd love to be a fly on the wall around him for a few months though, because no matter what expectations he has on day number one, they are too high. He's gonna be shocked when he sees the clowns who surround him in the exempt ranks.
