Superintendent's First Jobs

Before he left, Dana Starks had all the exempts (and from what we hear and read) Captains and Lieutenants, submit resumes and/or job histories. Although probably impossible, we'd hope the new boss reads every single one of them.

Then the fun can really begin:
  • Cross reference every one with who recommended them for promotion. Expose the network of political connections that have driven the CPD to it's current state.
  • Every boss should also submit a family tree, complete on both mother, father aunt and uncle's sides going back 3 generations, along with rank held by each ancestor. It's amazing how much supervisory qualification and political know-how flows in the bloodstreams of many bosses, especially the exempts. Perhaps the new Superintendent could begin a breeding program to distill this "leadership essence."
  • Find out who contributes to whom. The comment sections are ablaze with speculation of certain aldercreatures selling promotional spots. We all have stories - let's find out the facts of the matter.
As an ex-feeb, we're sure this guy has access to all sorts of other feeb bean counters. How about a general accounting of all the damage political and "meri-clout-orious" persons have done to this Department?

Ald. Howard Brookins (21st) faces eviction from his law office and campaign headquarters because he's failed to pay the rent for six months.

That's according to a lawsuit filed this week against Brookins -- a candidate for Cook County state's attorney -- and his former law partner, Judge Thaddeus Wilson.

I think this is the best thing for the department. Maybe now people that are intelligent and deserve to be in high positions will be promoted!!! Not political hacks. How many times in our careers have we dealt with a boss and said "This person is an idiot". Maybe we can finally get rid of that 30% meritorious too. Lets make it 10%. Real simple; if you don't test well.....too bad!!!

Open Letter to the new Boss,

Sir, the comments of the FOP president DO NOT reflect the opinions I'm heaard from the troops in my district. We are excited at the prospect of a house cleaning, and a fresh air of change. If you are empowered by the Mayor with enough authority to kill the three headed monster that is eating this agency like a cancer (nepotism, cronism and incompetence) then bully for you and us! Welcome aboard!

I am happy that we went out of the house to find the top spot.

I am still weary about Lil Dick Daley and his ever present personoma in everything.

I hope that JP Jody leads to many of these so called "leaders" being called out - and I agree with you SCC, it just amazes me that such leadership ability is passed on from generation to generation on the CPD, yet none of these leaders ever honed their leaqdership skills in the military or one of the service academies.

Thank God Jody is ex-military, does not matter what branch, just that he was in the servie and the Feds. These people know how to lead, bottom line. That is what we need on the CPD - real leaders, not some hack who knows the hibbity dibbity crew, the mexican cartel (HDO) or the southside irish crew.

Is it true that the FOP is going to file an unfair labor complaint because the city is making officers qualify with their snub nosed revolvers?Imagine a judge hearing this.
Judge:"So you think it's wrong to have to show a skill level with a pistol which you may use to defend your life and kill someone with? FOP lawyer: yep, they didn't consult us and see if it's ok wit us.
Judge: Doesn't every major department make their officers qualifiy with every gun the carry?
FOP lawyer: yep, I thinks so. But so what.
Judge:Isn't a snub nose revolver an auxiliary weapon? one that you do NOT have to carry because you have your prescribed weapon?
FOP Lawyer:Yep, but they never had to qualify before.
Judge: Don't officers who elect to carry an auxiliary semi auto pistol have to qualify with their auxiliary pistols?
FOP Lawyer: So? I only represent the 2,000 members of FOP still on the job who were hired before 1991.
Judge: So what your saying is that officers hired before 1991 DO NOT HAVE TO SHOW THEY ARE ABLE TO HIT WHAT THEY SHOOT AT WITH THEIR SNUB NOSED REVOLVER?
FOP Lawyer: YEP

You don't know that clout and nepotism play a significant role in federal politics?

This guy probably had a friend or two during his quick rise.
The crime in Chicago is the blatant abuse, not the fact that you had a friend or relative on the job.
If someone helps you, just don't embarass them. It's the loud mouths who tell everyone, "hey, look at me, nobody can move me, blah,blah,blah".

Merit should be abolished. Peoples lives are in the hands of public safety persons.(police-fire-emt)The most qualified should get the promotions, not Ginger Rugai's bitches.
The double and triple merit promototions stink to the high heavens. That is where the crime lies.
Underqualified supervisors who can't make a descision, or are out to fill their own pockets.

The question that concerns all is what will happen to all those wonderful Phat Phil and Daley political-whore inbred clout babies? Might be time for these go-getters to dust off the ol' golden kneepads. The FOP clowns are concerned about mass retirements from the leadership ranks resulting from our new anointed leader, and to that I say good riddance.

Every year without fail, old CPD clout is replaced with "new" inbred CPD clout, and the ceremonial golden kneepads are thusly passed down through the generations. These anointed ones share 99.44% of their DNA. As a result, the paramount career mission of these Exemptoids and clouted ones has been the preservation of their regime by ensuring the proper succession when the time comes for one of their ilk to retire. Promotional exam answers and merit qualifications for offspring are deemed a birthright among the Exemptoids, and there is always much rejoicing amongst the clouted ones come promotion time.

Will the game change now that we have an "outsider" running the CPD? Probably not too much, because there is lifeblood at stake for Da Mayor and his band of cronies.

However, if the pipe dream of positive organization-wide change is to be realized, the promotional process has to become transparent enough so those who seek advancement actually have a real chance based on objective exam criteria along with their ACTUAL work experience and training (including military and private sector credentials). If and when this happens, MAYBE things can get better for us around here.

Much has been said about the mayor's choice for the next superintendent. Although there are quite a few comments about the preference of an internal promotion, it seems most officers welcome the objectivity of an outsider. I think that the hardworking patrol officers (including myself) are mostly unaffected by these changes in so-called "leadership" anyway. If you come to work with some common sense and the intention to do an honest job, you have nothing to worry about. I hope that things will change for the better in this department. I hope our new superintendent can do something to improve the very low morale that has beaten down many officers. I hope he can make our promotional process a real and fair procedure that recognizes and rewards good hardworking officers that have put years of service into this city. I hope that he deliberates for better professional and deserved salaries for his officers, such as the one he now enjoys as superintendent. I hope he is a strong advocate for the unjustly accused officers whose careers and families are jeopardized by a totally biased and money driven media that publicly convicts officers before all the facts are examined. I hope he is steadfast against bending to the wishes of evil men such as rev. jackson and rev. meeks who disguise themselves as men of the cloth and use race as their defense for every criminal's actions. Policies will come and go, as do the leaders that enact them, but we are and will always remain the backbone of this department. Remember this, THEY NEED YOU MORE THAN YOU NEED THEM !! It takes a sharp mind, courage, diplomacy, endurance, and above all -- a good sense of humor, to do this job. Take pride in yourself and your work and be safe!

There is an eerie silence deafening the halls of HQ today.

The new superintendant has a striking resemblance to Alfred E. Neuman (Mad Magazine) with his glasses on.

What, me Worry!

J.P. Weis will be baffled in B.S. for the next 36 months until he can make any decent decisions.

REMEMBER!

O.W. Wilson came in to take the heat off the father. And he started spending like wild on more troops, equipment, etc. against the fathers wishes, and the old man just had to button his lip and accept it.

Wilson said, from now on, no more corruption or stealing. And it still went on for years after his departure.

I just hope this guy will bring the dept. up to 2007 before 2016. Get us the computers and equipment now, from legit companies that don't represent the Mayor friends and wait 36 months for a study of how they work.

Good Luck Weis (Alfred), you are in way over your head!

Maybe if he reads them, he'll promote according to job skills and experience rather than who knows who, or who kisses who's ass.
Be nice to see former detectives as detective supervisors, commanders and chief, former Narcotics and Gangs experts as supervisors, lieutenants, commanders, deputy chief and chief of narcotics, gangs, and organized crime, former youth officers as Special Victim Supervisors and Commanders.
Why do we create civilian Director jobs for patrolmen who rose to Deputy Chief without ever taking a promotional exam? There were dozens of Gang Experts better than him. Get rid of the house mouses who kissed Cline's ass for promotion, and promote those who earned it as bosses within those units... might give someone something to strive for.
Get rid of the blow boys and girls at the top that are choking off the rest of the department. AND REMEMBER, its the little guys and girls (patrol division) upon which this job depends, and they're the ones slighted the most by Cline and the Ass Kissers.
They're the reason we're in the situation we're in right now. Absolute lack of managerial and even more important LEADERSHIP skills. Taking care of a select few friends and relatives at the expense of the entire department. The unqualified promoted into Cline's inner sanctum have, by the use of meritorious promotions and transfers of friends into specialized units and sensitive commands insured leadership and corruption issues for the next generation. At least get the right people into the right positions, and get Clines Crew into either retirement, or prison.

Hello New Superintendent,

Welcome to Chicago and good luck because you'll need it!

One of the first issues that should be looked at right away is the Merit process and how it is full of asshats and butt wipers!

I'd say to help deter the high amount of "nitwit bosses" that make it on merit!

Revise the Merit Qualifications to include a minimum of a Bachelors Degree from an accredited College.

Those Officers with Post Graduate Degrees [i.e. for those that don't know, it is a Masters degree, Law degrees, etc.] should get considerable review and approval!

I have met quite a few bosses that only have an Associates degree or just a bunch of credit hours, YAWN!

These people got their spots NOT on their abilities but on how well they puckered their lips especially in HQ. and Commanders staff!

I am a Police Officer that has a Masters Degree and I work the Westside streets not in some damn office spot, and I find it insulting to take orders from a guy or gal who didn't even try to get a college education even after they were promoted to the rank of Sergeant or Detective or higher [G.E.D. Starks comes to mind]!

If you want a promotion, get an education, so that we the Police don't look stupid in the public eye!

How are we to be a credible organization for the world, when we have people without proper education or clearences for that matter [again G.E.D. Starks who can't get F.B.I. clearence for counter-terrorism, comes to mind]?

This is one of the most glaring reasons why the Police dept. looks stupid, and silly people!

A Detective with an Associates Degree is no match in court against a lawyer with a law degree!

A Sergeant with an Associates degree is not capable of diffusing a situation against those that have a higher education!

In fact, we are looked down upon, the way some of these nitwit Sergeants talk and act!

Some bosses have no people skills what so ever and some sound like drunken hillbillies!

I have seen situations like this and it was laughable and embarrassing to the Police dept.

It's just the facts of today's world people!

This is how we are looked at by the public!

From the: Over Educated Copper!

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.

The position of street Inspector is another. You are already paying sergeants and lieutenants. These supervisors can and should ensure attendance, uniform, vehicle licensing, and the other type rules are followed.

New Top Cop Tastes the Kool Aid for the First Time

November 30, 2007
BY Joe Mamma -- Police Reporter Joemamma@sccreporter.com

After pledging to rid the Chicago Police Department of corruption and regain the trust of the citizens of Chicago, career FBI agent J.P “Jody” Weis raised his ceremonial glass of Kool Aid and drank it down to the delight of Mayor Richard Daley and Interim Superintendent Dana V. Starks. Mayor Richard Daley also indulged himself with a glass to soothe his hoarse, sore throat which was clearly evident at the press conference.

When asked what it tastes like, Weis replied, “It tastes a little like fruit punch and I could get used to it.” Weis also added, “With a salary higher than Mayor Daley’s, I’d drink this stuff if it tasted like gasoline,” which earned laughs from the Mayor and the attendees in the room.

Hello New Superintendent,

Welcome to Chicago and good luck
----------------------------------
People like you are the problem! Get a job in the private sector, be a doctor lawyer, businessman whatever! If you are so smart and everyone is so dumb around you, then show us how smart you are....I mean you are not that smart if you work the westside and have a masters....Get over yourself and become something great. Over educated coppers make me sick! " I know everything with my match book education, yet I still work hard and am sick of taking orders from stupid people" (all said in a whiny lil bitch voice)

I beg to differ, look at the winners coming out of the CPS. The high schools are nothing like when you were there.

I understand you animosity with us college pukes, but that’s the way it is now. Coppers are very resistant to change and it is safe to say you are probably one of them. There are some people on this department that still refuse to use computers to make their job easier and it is the year 2007. Have you ever conceived the idea that people (such as yourself) with all the experience that you say you have wrote books for others to read so they could get insight on concepts and ideas such as policing. You even claim to know your shit 1,000,000 times better than 99% of the Sergeants, 75% of the W/C's and 25% of the DC's. So, as a self proclaimed “know it all” from that statement, should we sit on our asses and listen to you speak at the academy from a “know it all;” the very person you demonize in your rant?

No, I didn’t go to Jerry Lewis or Kalumet Kollege and I’m definitely not a know it all either. Just think, you could be a college puke for free on the departments’ dime.

Drunken Hillbillies? (that's funny)

You know the more I read this blurb of yours I realize how idiotic and INDIVIDUALIZED this department has become.

Most OVER EDUCATED yuppies or whatever you are either are bartenders in Lincon Park or file clerks in Law Firms or runners at the Merc. Exchange all wishing and wanting and waiting for the Head hunter to call.....So, What the hell are you doing on the westside in a patrol car? Waiting for the HEAD HUNTER TO CALL?

Over educated and afraid to do proactive police work will not get you anywhere. No complimentary history from being "smart" by avoiding going the extra mile but working on the westside will get you nowhere.

A resume with no accolades for police work but being in a patrol car on the westside with advanced schooling is quite embarrassing to say the least.

Everybody knocks the "who you know" people out here but dude do you know anyone? You sound pitiful!

Most people that have done anything on this job or have been anywhere do not embarrass themselves like you are doing! Try another approach to success!

For instance:

Send the guy a resume if you want to be the next Huberman....
Go for it!!! But just shut the fuck up on this blog.

Oh yeah tell him your not a DUNKEN HILLBILY either!

OVER EDUCATED COPPER SAYS,

I have to say I'm sorry. I thought education was everything. I've thought this since high school and grammar school when the guys used to slap me around in the school yard. Hell even the girlt knocked me around and took my lunch money.

When I was in college I was picked on too. The other boys caught me in the shower one day and made me squeal like a pig. After this happened 10 to 15 times I realized that I should have been born a woman, I enjoyed it so much. Well like I said I work the Westside but all of the boys don't know that I am now a cross-dresser when I'm off duty.

I wonder that if I come out of the closet and with my education I might become a Sgt. and beyond. Maybe I can meet you boys for a drink some night, we can get a buzz on, I take you home and if I'm lucky you will slap me around for a while as I tell you about my higher education. Think about it boys.

Unless they change state law, he will not be vested at all until 10 years and not get a full pension until 20 years of service. Of course who knows what kind of golden package Richy promised him.

As it is he would get his pension contributions back upon retirement (best guess, less than 10 years from now) with 1% simple interest.

Now if Richy promised him free steak dinners for life at Gene and Georgettis, free drinks in the Viagra Triangle, free cruises on the Tadin yacht and some inside scoop on City owned lots in soon to be prime spots, well all that is still to be revealed.

Is it true that the FOP is going to file an unfair labor complaint because the city is making officers qualify with their snub nosed revolvers?Imagine a judge hearing this.

If this is true it is a total waster of time. the range guys are finding a surprising number of snub nose revolvers that will not fire at all and a huge amount that are filthy dirty and in a bad state of repair.

Good idea if you ask me but no one asks me. I would make one weapon standard throughout the entire department and everyone would get one from the City and they would have to qualify on it or look for another job and they give the weapon back upon retirement. And they would have to shoot it once a month and allow a range officer to have a look see at it.

Except for those who keep their skill level up there and maintain their equipment properly this department is loaded with sloppy out of shape police officers with poor training and even poorer equipment.

One thing I would definitely look into if I were this new supe, a one time buy out for officers over 55. Revamp the department and do a phase in gradually leading to 20 years of service and retirement instead of mandatory 50 years of age minimum.

I am over 55, keep myself fit and always have top notch gear and weapons but I am the exception and I still say that. This is a job for younger men. Time to reverse the incentives and make it attractive for we old guys to go rather make it harder for us to leave until age 60.

Judging from the incompetent, idiotic, stupid, drunken hillbilly "Anthony Abate" like responses on this blog about getting a College education.

Those who resists a good College education sound like the gangbanging dogs we chase down the street. At least the gangbangers know they are gangbangers! Which makes them smarter than you asshats!

The problem with so called street smart coppers is, if you are so smart then why do you bitch about having a good education and getting ahead on this department to make a difference. You afraid to open a book or something? But, instead you whine about how the department fucks you over on the promotion tests and then merit.

The only person you fuck over is yourself!

You too stupid to realize it, street smart copper!

I came on the job when O.W. Wilson was the superintendent. You could work a steady watch and your college was paid for and in my case I was under the G.I. Bill. Hell you made money going to college and you got a degree. Now it did not do anything for you getting anywhere with the CPD BUT I sure used it in other things, and in retirement. Police Science did not exist in my day so you majored in Education or Business, something you could use in the real world. If you could not out smart a stupid boss (we had them back then too) or handle a lawyer in court, then you did not belong on the street. You did not need a degree to do those things, JUST EACH OTHER. A college education is a great thing, but not for the CPD. Get your degree, let the city pay for it. It's a big world out there boys and girls. And the best thing about it was We had fun.

Sir takes two more aspirins..

On that last street stop you filled out that white index card,what do you call it..a "contact card"? What is the purpose of a contact card?

Well...Sir..it's sort of like a "warning ticket"

Ok..so let me get this straight..if you issue a ticket to someone from out of state they can sign the ticket,keep their license and drive away...but if you stop someone from IL,you take their driver's license or make them pay cash to keep their driver license?

aaa...yeah...seems a little backward huh?

Thanks for letting me drive. Why does the steering wheel have chunks of rubber cut out of it?

aaa...some officers find this gives them better control of the vehicle.

Why are those sworn,healthy officers getting on the bus with all those children? Is there a problem?

aaa..no Sir..today is the CAPS office field trip to Great America...

yeah, right...like we would allow a healthy,sworn,gun touting officer,with all the crime on the street, spend the day at Great America. (All is silent in the car,Sir throws the bottle of aspirin out the window)Sir asks,

Dear JP,

Welcome to our dysfunctional family.

Take a walk around HQ and notice how many do-nothings are hiding there. After a week or so you will realize that instead of having 8 coppers doing 1 hour of work, you could have 1 copper doing 8 hours of work. This will free up hundreds of coppers to come back to the district.

The extreme do-nothings will be easy to spot. They are the ones carrying a single piece of paper as they walk through the building. If you look closely, you will notice that the paper is slightly discolored. This is because it has been carried around for years.

So, welcome and good luck!

TO: "over-educated copper"

SHUT THE FUCK UP, YOU ARROGANT COCKSUCKER!

I have nothing against advanced education. I earned my baccalaureate degree before I came on the job in 1966. Yet, it was only when I got to Fillmore as a rookie that I began to learn critical survival skills on a very dangerous job.

My teachers? Some damn great coppers, most of whom never got beyond a high school diploma. We were streetwise and always had each others back. This ain't academia, punk. It's real life--and death!

How dare you imply that education alone makes for an outstanding police officer or a boss. Many of the sharpest coppers I've known went no further than high school graduation. Don't think for a moment that some of them wouldn't put many college grads to shame on a standardized I.Q. test.

Traditional CPD promotional "processes" may actually have a converse correlation with actual performance. Without transparency and security, they are pathetically inconclusive. It is not coincidental that under analysis, they merely reflect clout.

Aside from the clout monster and "political correctness", it's self-absorbed assholes like you that have fucked up the job. At the other end of the spectrum, we have the "too much college, not enough high school" whiners.

Formal education is only one small factor in making an outstanding copper. Native intelligence, common sense, pride, tenacity, integrity, teamwork and a passion for helping the weak and catching the bad guys will trump a mere sheepskin every time, hotshot.

You'd be well advised to keep your eyes and ears open and your mouth shut.

My two cents about college…It is the ability to begin and finish something. Not something like a beer or watching a football game. Rather something like using your brain, gaining a degree is just that, it is about gaining something, working on a problem (subject) that you might of otherwise never have studied and stretching your mental abilities. Down the road the disciplines learned/achieved through higher learning allow a person the ability to approach problems from various perspectives. This is a great thing. It would be a tragedy to approach all of life’s problems in the same manner as you might approach two shitheads fighting over a 40 & half a rock. That being said, an education does not and cannot replace a person’s life experiences (street smarts), instead it should supplement it. Street smarts + education (not talking about Lewis) can give a person real personal power. A person with either one and not the other is only effective in limited situations and then of limited power.

To the poster who complained that out of staters (some states only) get to sign "promise to comply" and drive away while Illinois residents are not allowed this priviledge, it's not that simple.
MANY YEARS AGO, ALL ILLINOIS RESIDENTS WERE ALLOWED TO "PROMISE TO COMPLY." Some of the vets here may remember it. The result? Many did not "remember" to come to court, resulting in a huge amount of BFWs issued against the local driving public. So they had to revert it back to the old way of "license or bond card (or if you have clout, an I bond, and a PO bringing your license back to a location of your own choosing!).

He is the G!! The FBI!! Wake up people. They have one frame of reference, the federal way. They don’t trust us, they don’t like us and they think we are all on the take.

Sure the aldercreatures will have to keep their mouths shut, the last thing they need is to attract the attention of more federal agents. The promotion process may get better, but there is clout on the federal level also, so that’s no new game to them. But remember the flip side. Ask anyone who worked for or is currently with a federal agency, they cut no slack. You screw up and you’re gone. A lot of people are looking at loosing their jobs , some that deserve it and a lot that will not. Get a beef from a citizen and you will take time ... how quickly we forget 10 guys that worked in Marquette that went to the joint over the testimony of gang bangers and dope dealers, who made that happen......the FBI. They will befriend you, lie to you and stab you in the back.

Top management is anything but "top". We have a bunch of girls doing a man's job, shoved down our throats be a 400 lb. slob. We have squads of people taking care of the eateries around town so he could het his expensive freebes. He appoints a chief because he goes on vacation with her.

Hello New Superintendent,

Welcome to Chicago and good luck because you'll need it!

One of the first issues that should be looked at right away is the Merit process and how it is full of asshats and butt wipers!

I'd say to help deter the high amount of "nitwit bosses" that make it on merit!

Revise the Merit Qualifications to include a minimum of a Bachelors Degree from an accredited College.

Those Officers with Post Graduate Degrees [i.e. for those that don't know, it is a Masters degree, Law degrees, etc.] should get considerable review and approval!

I have met quite a few bosses that only have an Associates degree or just a bunch of credit hours, YAWN!

These people got their spots NOT on their abilities but on how well they puckered their lips especially in HQ. and Commanders staff!

I am a Police Officer that has a Masters Degree and I work the Westside streets not in some damn office spot, and I find it insulting to take orders from a guy or gal who didn't even try to get a college education even after they were promoted to the rank of Sergeant or Detective or higher [G.E.D. Starks comes to mind]!

If you want a promotion, get an education, so that we the Police don't look stupid in the public eye!

How are we to be a credible organization for the world, when we have people without proper education or clearences for that matter [again G.E.D. Starks who can't get F.B.I. clearence for counter-terrorism, comes to mind]?

This is one of the most glaring reasons why the Police dept. looks stupid, and silly people!

A Detective with an Associates Degree is no match in court against a lawyer with a law degree!

A Sergeant with an Associates degree is not capable of diffusing a situation against those that have a higher education!

In fact, we are looked down upon, the way some of these nitwit Sergeants talk and act!

Some bosses have no people skills what so ever and some sound like drunken hillbillies!

I have seen situations like this and it was laughable and embarrassing to the Police dept.

It's just the facts of today's world people!

This is how we are looked at by the public!

From the: Over Educated Copper!

11/30/2007 04:02:00 PM

You could not be more right. But I guarantee that someone will be defiant on your post no matter how legit you argument is. Not that you are wrong(cuz you are right), but because there are still people here that believe that many, if not any, person here that holds a degree of higher education is and will be the downfall of the CPD.

I understand you animosity with us college pukes, but that’s the way it is now. Coppers are very resistant to change and it is safe to say you are probably one of them. There are some people on this department that still refuse to use computers to make their job easier and it is the year 2007. Have you ever conceived the idea that people (such as yourself) with all the experience that you say you have wrote books for others to read so they could get insight on concepts and ideas such as policing. You even claim to know your shit 1,000,000 times better than 99% of the Sergeants, 75% of the W/C's and 25% of the DC's. So, as a self proclaimed “know it all” from that statement, should we sit on our asses and listen to you speak at the academy from a “know it all;” the very person you demonize in your rant?

Three Important Things....1. Over Educated Cop- Can you spell asshole? Because you sure the fuck can't spell clearance. Clearance has two a's. Phonics should have taught you this Mr. Over. Clearance is clearly a word you would need to know how to spell if you were a supervisor or even a detective. In fact, I'll bet a detective with an associates degree could spell clearance correctly. He'd be afraid not to. Everyone might think he was a (I've forgotten how you misspelled this one) drunken hillbilly. In furthurance, I've seen detectives with GED's, wipe the floor with attorneys at 26th and Cal many, many times. And lastly, your obnoxious overuse of exclamation marks can only lead me to believe you are a compulsive shopper. 2. The Appalachian American Police Assn represents hillbilly police officers, not The Chicago Police Star Hockey Team as some may have been lead to believe. The correct representation of the word hillbilly is hillbilly and not hill billy. Not all hillbilly are found to be drunken. Not all drunken are found to be hilbilly. That may be confusing to some. Please read General Order 2008-02 Drinks, Drunks, and the Drinkers Who Love Them 3. Welcome New Federal Agent, Skipping the family tree part eh??? Well, Welcome anyway. I wrote a poem for you, here's how it goes- Ain't no job.......big or small.......can't be answered........with a 19-Paul....by the way, I rapped that and I did it with a beat. So if I am killed SCC, I would like to be referred to as, Wished I Was Nicer, Aspiring rapper, minister (I got the card) former(cuz I'll be dead) PO. I don't want all that bad cop rap at my wake.

If drinking a Slurpee with booze mixed in it at 2:30 p.m. in the afternoon while going to Hanson Stadium for a High School football game detail with a bunch of recruits that you are supervising is NOT A PROBLEM - - well, maybe I'm wrong.

I still remember when he was buying his drink at the 7-11 at Diversey and Long; he asked the guy behind the counter for some filthy magazines, one named "Clean Shaven" , all this while kids were coming in from school dismissal.

Someone tell me please, how did it come to this? How? People running for office with no shame whatsoever about their personal life that in no way reflects the position they hold or are running for? And then they have the audacity to point their fingers at others by calling them racist? Unfortunately, nobody saw this coming. If they had, we would have put laws in place to prevent convicted felons from being aldermen or holding other offices, etc. But who could have predicted that the law abiding tax paying public would have to deal with...Super Fly?

Just wanted to touch on the article over the "Jackson house divided". Anyone else think this is just a cutesy ploy to oil their way into the White House regardless of who wins the Presidency? I thought so.

The last time we heard from Jackie Jackson, her husband had just fathered a baby with his biographer and Jesse and Luis Guiterrez quick and in a hurry got her into the national press over Vieques, Puerto Rico. Even though nobody had seen Jackie Jackson for the past thirty years, Luis was telling the camera what a humanitarian activist Jackie is like we were all back in the 60's. The press followed her big fat ass tripping over jungle foilage in her high heels and sky blue polyester pant suit. It was a sight to behold.

It never ceases to amaze me how easily the press can be monopolized and manipulated.

Well, well. A new all-time low in from a jealous coward spouting bald-faced lies while hiding behind a keyboard.

I have little doubt that you were assigned to 025 or Area 5, yet I'm certain that you were not a rookie PPO or even a patrol officer. Fact is, I believe you outranked me.

I never drank alcohol while on duty at 025.

I believe you are the same person that once posted that I was off drunk somewhere when Greg Hauser and Ray Kilroy were murdered. Anyone working that horrific night knows that I called in the 10-1 as Greg died in my arms.

Before SCC began deleting "anonymous" degenerates like yourself, you also sound like the shameless pervert that posted that I was sucking dick up in Boys Town?

I've got your message loud and clear--you hate my guts and you will stoop to any level in an attempt to ruin my good reputation.

Now here's my message for you: Get help! You obviously have very serious character issues with low self-esteem.

Great response, Northside.

I wouldn't be surprised that the vicious asshat is an alcoholic and a homosexual. Not that there's anything wrong with that.

I saw Northside playing poker for money at a change party 20 years ago. I think he smoked marijuana in college. I once saw him go through a red light with no emergency.

GET A LIFE, YOU BIG PUSSY!

Rock on, John!

The comments from the guy who says he's a cop, saying psycho-shit to NorthSide. If he is a cop, here is our perfect opp. to turn someone in to to St Michaels. (before he does something wacked!) I didn't care for the old St. Michaels, but I'm all about the new turn this unit has taken. I know I'll hear beefs but They've done good so far. I'm just sayin'....
