Responsibility? Hahahaha

  • The days of police brass “blaming the troops” and running for cover will end when career FBI agent Jody Weis takes over next month as Chicago’s new $310,000-a-year police superintendent, Mayor Daley said Tuesday.
  • “What I said to [Weis] is, ‘You’re going to take responsibility.’ If the police officer takes responsibility on the street, your sergeants, your field training officers, your lieutenants, your captains and your command staff have to take responsibility for the job they've done or not done,” Daley said, his voice rising.
  • “If I judge you and our community judges you on your actions, everybody else must be judged as well. There’s no exceptions in regards to this. There’s where the transition is going to take place. Those who can’t take responsibility will have to leave. There’s no more excuses anymore. No more blaming the troops on the ground. It’s the responsibility of those who seek those braids…It’s a 24-hour job, seven days a week.”
Finally. Someone holding the brass responsible. And in a related matter:
  • An emotional Mayor Daley acknowledged today that it was a “lapse of judgement” for his son to have a hidden interest in a sewer inspection company that did business with the city, adding, “I wish he hadn't done it.”
  • “I did not know about his involvement in this company. As an adult, he made that decision. It was a lapse of judgement for him to get involved with this company. I wish he hadn't done it,” Daley said.
  • “I know the expectations for elected officials and their families are very high. Rightfully so. Especially for me, as I know on a daily basis.”
Just so you know he's not responsible for the way he raised his son and how he acts. And amazingly, both of the linked articles were written by Daley's own personal water carrying reporter, Fran Spielman. The woman has no shame whatsoever.

Back to our regularly scheduled mayhem.

I have three questions for da mayor:

Where did a 29 year old grad student get the $60K?
Where did he get the idea to invest in a sewer inspection firm?
Who directed him to invest with thsi particular firm?

Again Daley doesn't even know what goes on in his own family. Is the only person he talks to is Maggie? He doesn't talk to own his son? What a munch of BS. The kid joined the service not out of a great love for this country or high ideals but to escape the law and being scrutinized by others. If the kid had such ideals he wouldn't have snuck around trying to make a fast buck and not reporting his stake in the company. Daley is crying because his son got caught with his hand in the cookie jar. Hoping that being out of sight and out of mind in the service would not reveal this under the table dealings backfired. It's out in the open. Like father like son, the shit don't fall far from the asshole.

Anonymous Tribune Headline; page one said...

Todays Tribune Headline reads:

"MONITOR RIPS CITY HIRING" over the byline of staff reporters Laurie Cohen and Todd Lightly.

The account of charges by court-appointed federal monitor Noelle Brennan includes:

"...the city decided to retest candidates for police lieutenant after Brennan's office received complaints about the exam in January. Brennan said she was concerned about the new test because of reports that officers with political connections might have been given the answers.

The monitor said she took her concerns to both the Law Department and the mayor's office, but the city proceeded to give the exam using the compromised questions."


Significantly, in today's corresponding article concerning the federal monitor by the Sun-Times Fran Spielman, mention of the EXAMSCAM bullshit is conspicuously absent.

ATTN: Local Media. We KNOW and you KNOW that the CPD promotional "process" has always been rigged by CLOUT!

You ask "Why don't victimized officers go public with evidence and complaints to the media?"
Answer: WHISTLEBLOWER RETALIATION BY THE CITY!

Are we asking too much for the MEDIA to DEMAND that Daley and the city make this "process" FAIR and TRANSPARENT, composed, administered, computer scanned (immediately) and scored by unbiased credible outsiders (this would also include a brief process where candidates could challenge the accuracy and relevancy of questionable test items prior to final scoring).

Furthermore, the media continues to use the word "merit" in describing CPD personnel policies. Unless and until the CPD issues a written, public, categorical and unequivocal definition of "merit", their unwritten definition is nothing more than a bastardized euphemism for CLOUT.

All who scored in the top 25 should be served Grand Jury Subpoenas and asked under oath if anyone provided them with insider information (answers). I suspect someone among those 25 will crack and tell the truth when they realize that someone will eventually spill the beans. For those who cheated, remember that once someone other than you know about it, it is no longer a secret. Those who scored legit have nothing to worry about.

To Mr Weis,

You have a golden opportunity to make a positive impact on a glorious institution with years of pride and service. Sir, we are in hard times now and those of us with no clout, no power, are feeling the brunt of it. If you plan to come in and do business as usual, the Chicago way, then move on because we have plenty of people right here for that. If you plan to come in and kick the patrolman around, kick the front line supervisor around, then take your resume' and go else where please, we have that already. But if you plan on coming here and helping this department take major steps toward professionalism then I can say, wit out having to ask them, the majority of the men and women on this department will help you to no end. What we lack and what we have lacked for years is leadership. Oh, we have plenty of managers!!!! Plenty of people with their group of guys taking care of others and their group of guys..How did things work? Just look at Finnigan's story, this "Police Officer of the Year" and member of an "elite" unit..Recall the story how some State's Attorney from another county was donating the $2.000 plus dollars to charity that Finnigan had donated to his campaign (Chicago Sun Times)..I wish I had $2.000 to donate to myself let alone some candidate from another county..But oh yea, I don't steal...Anyway, I work with hundreds of policeman who should be Officer of the Year and who should be in "elite" units but they don't have $2.000 either, cause the too don't steal. I know from talking to officers every day, we are tired Mr Weis, we are worn down from the persecution in the press and from our elected officials, many of whom shouldn't be corner newspaper salesmen let alone members of a governing body. Oh. we'll survive, and we'll continue to be the real police but you sir, you have a chance many of us only dream about. Don't blow it!!!

Yes, the kid's in the 82d, and word is he's assigned to psyops -- not surprising for a guy with an MBA from the University of Chicago (hey, I don't give much credit for that, but most employers do, and the military sure does.)

Bad as the mayor (and his son) can be, only a stupid fool joins the military to make money, or set up a civilian career. Joining the military in time of war can be a one-way ticket to six feet under, even if you do psyops from the safety of a base. Say what you like about them, but the mayor and his son aren't stupid.

I've opposed the war in Iraq since before it started. But I give credit to Patrick Daley for putting himself in harm's way for his country. And I give credit to Mayor Daley, as I would to any father who watches his child go off to war.

They may be full of it on most things, but I think they're the real deal on Patrick's military service.

On this, my prayers are with the both of them, and with all American soldiers and their families.

The inspector general's investigation reportedly aims to determine whether the company had inside help at City Hall -- either in getting its city contracts or in looking the other way when the names of Patrick Daley, the mayor's son, and Robert Vanecko, a nephew of the mayor, were omitted from a City Hall filing that should have disclosed them, along with three other men, as owners.



Is this the same Vanecko that did the sewer deal. What, another lapse in judgment?

All who scored in the top 25 should be served Grand Jury Subpoenas and asked under oath if anyone provided them with insider information (answers). I suspect someone among those 25 will crack and tell the truth when they realize that someone will eventually spill the beans. For those who cheated, remember that once someone other than you know about it, it is no longer a secret. Those who scored legit have nothing to worry about.

Did the media address the fact that it is the same cousin who tapped in our pension fund for some way-out investment that STINKS of "scam"? This shit is becoming more bold and more outrageous.

Didn't some black senator or congressman's step son also get some outrageous multi million deal with computer tech contracts with some government agency? Didn't he claim he had absolutely no knowledge of this?

I say whenever a family member, distant cousin, step child, godfather, niece, neighbor, etc. get a sweet deal both the person who gets the sweet deal and the politico member take a lie test to see if there is actually "no knowledge"... Everyone must submit to the SCAM test. It is obvious that the ethics crap we take on line isn't meant for the privledged.

PO Bernard Kelly, second watch, second District is a lazy, race baiting goof. He is hiding on the School Unit when he isn't milking the Medical. He just came off the Medical after a couple of months, licking his wounds for his light suspension. He got suspended for his drunken, disorderly conduct in the suburbs where he got into a fight the suburban police. It could have been worse but a white boss drove out there to smooth over the mess. As far as the most recent encounter, the word is he should have been arrested for something, which he apparently does quite often, but the CPD coppers gave him a major play even though he was MF'ing them. He is a major JO who is an embarrassment to the CPD. Retire Reverand Kelly, we really are much better off without you.

PO Bernard Kelly ran for Alderman and held a fundraiser at some riverfront bar in Calumet City or Riverdale over the summer. The bar closed at 2:00AM. At 3:00AM Kelly, his wife and one or two other people were still hanging out in front drinking. Some boat owners trying to sleep in the marina called the police about the noise.
When they arrived Kelly was drunk and ignorant, and his wife was worse. After being told to leave numerous times he put his hands on an officer. He kicked another officer. He got arrested. 002nd District was notified and a 1st watch capt responded. Kelly claimed it was a racial thing, so the capt went and spoke to the suburban officers who arrested him. It was three black officers who said Kelly was a jagoff and they gave him every opportunity to leave. A white sgt from the suburban department told the capt that he tried to help Kelly but he was a total jerk and he kicked his officers. He apologized to the capt but said his officers wanted Kelly arrested. Kelly took 30 days for the incident. After being detailed from the 002nd District to Gang Investigations as a PO in the late 1990's Kelly filed a racial beef while there. He was detailed there to be a "buy officer". He was a PO not a Gang Specialist. He beefed that he was being forced to buy narcotics because he was black. WTF! That's why you were detailed there in the first place.

Business as usual. Wake up citizens! You elected these mutts and all they do is deflect all of the negative right at the police and they all skate away scot-free with their and their families pockets stuffed laughing all the way. Gotta admit though, he's got balls saying " I did'nt know about my son's investments". Ha ha ha. Let's face it, the Mayor knows EVERYTHING, I MEAN EVERYTHING. Tears huh. Screw your choked up tears. How many tears and heartaches has the Mayor caused the honest hard working police in this city trying to make a living and this city liveable??? Usually the ones who are pointing the finger and yelling the most are the ones who are at fault.......example: Al Sharpton, Jesse Jackson, Moprah, Farrakan,Daley, Meeks, alderman, jaggoff coppers playin the race card and the list goes on and on. And the cycle will continue till someone or something decides to change it. Hopefully I'm here long enough to see it. Im proud to be a Chicago Police Officer, no matter what the Mayor, the so-called reverends, media and citizens think about me! We have a hard job......well some of us do....the ones with no clout humpin the Beat car.

Why must non-police agencies train at academy? Why allow private agencies use academy? Basketball games for non-police teams? Why not use other facilities? Academy even trains animal control. As a result, police have no place to park and receive tickets. Even staff have received tickets. I love officers who double park in academy lot and block others from leaving.

****Doesn't every district/35th have a parking lot for it's personnel? But Oh, the Academy should not have a parking lot of it's staff in your opinion? Maybe you should write the mayor & tell him that when they build a new academy to build a parking lot to accommodate every PPO, PO and Outside agency that comes in for training. The district parking lots are 3 times bigger than the academy parking lots. Because the lots are so small at the Academy staff have priority in parking in the lots. After 9:00, all staff is in the building and the lot is open to PO's to take any remaining spots.

PPO's and PO's have options. CTA, RTA, metra or skip training. For the last 50 years, recruits had to secure their own parking. Look at older district buildings. No designated parking for officers. yet, city should make provisons for recruits? Every CPD unit and other city agencies look at academy for training. Even condo associations and boy scouts use the academy. Sounds nice until they realize: no parking! Academy is very cooperative and willing to help but cannot create parking spots. Why not utilize other buildings for inservice training? Why use the academy? I agree it is very frustrating for officers to attend training without parking. Parking is severly limited for eveyone except white shirts and inspectors will write any violators, including staff. Everyone watches the academy and complain about parking. Deal with it!
