Frank? A Little Gratuity?

How about Frank Main at the Sun Times signs over about half his paycheck to SCC? Just about every story this guy writes nowadays is culled from our comment sections:
  • A Chicago Police officer has been cleared of charges he operated a gambling parlor but was fired for keeping an unregistered gun in his police locker.
This story is 2 months old but Frank passes it off as new (as we mistakenly inferred, but we aren't professional "journalists" with all sorts of resources and go-fers at our disposal). Here's a bold prediction - this guy gets his job back within 2 years. With back pay.

How? He can cite cases where officers have killed people with unregistered guns and suffered no more than few days suspension. You can't have two tiers of discipline...at least not out in the open. And we all know there are at least three different systems of punishment. The Police Board's chance was the gambling charge that somehow got cleared.

R.T. is a human turd with 9 lives. this guy is a cancer from the word go. I know...I know, but this is a guy that if you search high and low, you will NEVER EVER find a good thing to say about him. I'd love to have his clout, because he has infected every district that he has worked in and keeps coming back. He is a wanna be wiseguy that can't keep his ass clean for 45 minutes !

WOW! I didn't know you can get fired for having an unregistered handgun in your locker. First thing tomorrow I am going to get rid of that unregistered handgun that has the serial number drilled out and equiped with a silencer out of my locker. I think it is right under that one kilo package of white powder I found. But can I keep my girlie magazines in the locker so my wife doesn't find them? I wonder?

WELL, IF HE'S READING, HAVE HIM FOLLOW UP ON THIS: THE GIRL THAT WAS SHOT AND KILLED IN THE BACK OF THE YARDS NEIGHBORHOOD, WHO HER MOTHER CLAIMS WAS NOT IN A GANG. THEN WHY WERE THERE 30-40 LA RAZA GANG MEMBERS ALL DECKED OUT AT HER WAKE AT 57TH AND PULASKI TO PAY THEIR RESPECTS? AND WHY DO WE AS TAX PAYERS HAVE TO HAVE THE GANG TEAM HAVE A CAR RIGHT OUT INFRONT OF THE WAKE DURING THE WHOLE NIGHT? AND OUTSIDE UNITS ASSIGNED TO BE IN THE AREA?? EXPECT SOME SAINTS IN 009 TO GET SHOT THIS WEEKEND FOR REVENGE. ITS GOING TO BE A BLOODY CHRISTMAS........

Wrong! CPD has several levels of disipline. There are coppers were in shooting with unregistered guns and received the medal of valor.

um...that's what we said. "at least three different levels of discipline..." that works out to "several."

I worked with R.T. a couple of times, he is very very...uh...turd sums it up pretty well. The guy manages to step in poop on a regular basis. Once he was in a shooting in 014 with some sort of union rep in the car, while he was ordered to stay home while being on the medical. Oh yeah, his underage girlfriend was in the car and his car had a bullet hole in the side. That's just one incident, lot's of others for the bathroom wall.

Your point is exactly what? Gangbangers have been retaliating with each other since the days of Capone. Is this your version of a holiday zero tolerance LaRaza teletype?.

Shame on this Department if Teresi is allowed to slither back onto the Job. Never has been much of a cop, and never will be, more trouble to a supervisor than he was worth. This Dept. can only save $$ by keeping him out of a uniform and off the payroll.

What? Coppers in a shooting with unregistered gun awarded the medal of valor? If that is true mine is coming out of the drawer where is has been kept and going instead into the garbage.

I got aced out of several awards because of technical rule violations. The first time that happened many years ago all awards went in a drawer and have remained there ever since.

You all can take that colored ribbon BS and shove it. Real police don't need a chest full of bullshit medals to prove who they are.

The simple answer, as a non-cop observer here, is your boss doesn't want to upset the hispanic voters. So his spokespeople, which are also your spokespeople, wouldn't dare say she had gang ties. And if any POs spoke the truth,well, i wonder what would happen to youse.
And as far as all the 'reverends' go, how did mayor fredo build his power in the black areas? By going around the black bosses and giving the reverends whatever they wanted, tax breaks, land, etc., just as long as they deliver their congregations at the voting booths. That could be a big reason why no one at city hall or 35th street ever [publicly] criticizes any of them or calls them out with the facts.

Another non-cop here...but aren't criminal records a matter of public record? Couldn't the media include prior offenses or convictions along with the family denial? You know, like....Graciela, who has been arrested for p/c/s fourteen times, according to her family, has never used drugs in her life.

Don't you learn in journalism school that you have to present both sides?

The media would never include her gang affiliation, because they have to sell their papers & their news stories. It sounds better to let the public think an honor student was killed. For example, they'll sell many more papers if the headline screams, "POLICE OFFICER SHOOTS & KILLS 15 YEAR OLD STUDENT". Why include that he had a gun and pointed it at the Police? Sensationalism & bashing the Police sells. Sad...
STAY SAFE!!!

She was an admitted LaRaza along with her boyfriend, who was also shot. She had a couple of pinches, but she was going to start installing car stereos next week. Sorry, wrong line. She was turning her life around and was going to really try to finish her GED by the time she turned 20.

I THINK THE POINT IS PRETTY OBVIOUS. ALSO, RETAILIATING GOES FURTHER BACK THAN THE "CAPONE DAYS." THE POST HAD NOTHING TO DO WITH ME BEING STUCK THERE (I WASN'T), BUT HOW THE FAMILY IS IN DENIAL AND HOW THE DEPARTMENT WASTES MANPOWER ON A GANGBANGER FUNERAL THAT THE MEDIA PAINTS TO BE AN HONOR STUDENT. THE ONLY GOOF HERE IS YOU, ANYONE WHO USES THE WORD "WIFEY" IS A GOOF. HAVE A GOOD CHRISTMAS, LOSER.

I worked with Rich. He was no worse than a lot of cops. Richie the cop. He hung with a group of guys that used to hang at Jilly's, places like that. One of his buddies was Johnny Vegas. Used to dress well, tip generously. It's the way you wear your hat. Ring a ding ding, like the chairman of the board. Youse know what I'm sayin?

fired for having anunregistered gun in a CPD locker? Was it stolen?
If not it's just an ordinance violation, an unconstitutional one also. What ever happened to a day suspension, reprimand; etc. Don't sound all that serious to me. Just another CPD double standard cause you know some big boss or his kid wouldnt get fired for that.
