Stroger Dead

Although we don't wish anyone any particular ill, John Stroger was emblematic of everything that is wrong with Cook County politics and will continue to be wrong with County government until such time as voters disband this thoroughly corrupt organization.

Unfortunately, we will now have to listen to the sanctimonious crap eulogizing this guy whom the Grim Reaper seized before the U.S. Marshall.

Perhaps, we will see Hillary and Obama stop by and say a few well chosen words.

Here's a thought. Maybe he's been "dead", brain or otherwise since his stroke and they just pulled the plug on him now to knock the new tax increases and other deviltry out of the news for a while.

Stay safe, and recall what Marc Anthony said at the funeral of Julius Cesar, “"The evil men do live after them; the good is oft interred with their bones."
To which the great Casey Stengel might have replied: "And vice versa."

When I hear people bad-mouth the Strogers, I usually say:

"Every bad thing you can say about them you could also say about the Daleys, so why are you picking on them -- is it maybe because they're Black?"

But I gotta admit, SCC, I can't say that to you. You are an equal opportunity bad-mouther.

I was at the medical today and I had a Mope-rah sighting. I was in the waiting room and she walked by on her way out. I wasn't sure at first but the civilian behind the desk said "bye Ms. Mitchell" and she said "bye girl". I looked up her picture when I got home, and sure enough it was her. Two questions:

1. Why was she allowed in there? I believe there is a sign outside the medical that says something like "only officers allowed past this point". I suppose she could get a special clearance as a civilian but I didn't notice any ID tag.

2. What was she doing there? What business could she possibly have?

There was also a gold star, but maybe an inspector, roaming around. I didn't get a good enough look. Coincidence or not?

There were many other people around and I'm positive it was her. Someone else must've seen her besides me.

After reading all this BS about the State's Attorney using Admin proceedures in criminal cases, I for one will not give the ASA's anymore play when they are drunk out in public. If they want to go by the letter then they will be arrested for DUI also if caught. This makes me pissed now because last year I came in contact during a call of two drunk F/2 ASA's who refused to pay thier cab fare. I should have had the cab driver sign complaints for theft but I smoothed things out between the ASA's and cabbie. My mistake...

SCC, you should delete that first comment. However people feel about JStrog, ro the Dem party, no one has any right to determine "where" the old man is going to go. He simply carried on a tradition that is as old as Chicago is. The fact that he looked out for some black folks along the way NOW sticks in some people's throats. Deal with it.

The only problem is that Stroger's kid is really going to fuck up county government, and about 40-50 young policeman are going to lose their jobs due to budget cuts because of this nitwit.

It seems if the Toddler doesn't get some sort of a boost in revenue, pink slips will hit next month.

A policeman is a policeman regardless of what political subdivision they work for. It is a sad commentary on government when the government (be it the county, the city, the state, whatever) hurts our policemen in ANY manner just to make political hay for themselves.

Advance message to the anti CCSPD flamers: Fuck off and die.

Sorry to disappoint, but the woman you saw was nurse Zelastine Mitchell. She works at the medical section AND is an asshole like Mope-rah. The Inspector was Tom Schaedel. He is the boss of the medical section.

I've been unable to confirm this from sources inside the academy but, I hear the new recruits are doing PT every day now. Jody is supposed to pop in any time now to work out with them.

Funny how so many people are posturing to impress the new guy and he isn't even here yet. The only ones not posturing are the ones expected to put papers in 01FEB08 or shortly thereafter.

Any speculation here on who is gonna pull the plug?

Still hearing Williams for 1st of Operations, and now an outsider brought in by J-Fed. Grau's name is conspicous by absence.

Also hearing:
-That PAX lines are burning up to the Foot units of 001 and 018, and Airport Law inquiring of open spots.
-Donahue is sweating about the election. He has his minions launching a smear campaign against the other candidates.
-City Hall is doing a study regarding the probable election of a Democrat and National Health Care. The first to loose benefits will be those not covered by contractural agreements.

These are interesting times we live in my friends.

Hold on there. Better do a little research on John McCain's stand on the issues. He is a liberal Democrat in Republican guise. He wants to close Gitmo and have the terrorists moved to US prisons, where they will automatically be granted the same rights that US prisoners have. he is for restricting political speech, he is against tax cuts, and he believes that waterboarding is torture so how are our intel people supposed to break these terrorists now? Fred Thompson is a true conservative ala Ronald Reagan. Too bad the mainstream media avoids him like the plague. He is our best chance at fixing what is wrong with this country.

When I was in the academy we did PT every day. We ran three times a week and we ran fast twice a week. It didn't really make a difference though. The fat, sick, lame and lazy still managed to slip through the cracks-very LARGE cracks-while those that busted their asses get paid the same.

I wonder how incredibly fat those pigs are now that they haven't been doing any form of exercise for 5 years. Wait, I think I can hear them getting fatter. You know who you are 02-08B!

If that's true and Moprah was in an area restricted to plice officers this should be investigated.

Start the investigation. Did she sign a log? What do-nothing fuck at the kiosk allowed her back there? Did her "sister" slip her back there? I wanna know.

Bullshit. Plenty of crap gets published. But we reserve the right not to print blanket baseless accusations, names, racial BS, stuff that embarrasses granny and whatever else we want.
