Debunking Rumors

Tons of rumors floating around. We figured by not addressing them, people would figure out that they were BS.
  • Roadside DUI checkpoints targeting cops- It's bullshit people. The schedule for the checkpoints is published a month or more ahead of schedule. If they happen to chose a neighborhood known for so called "cop bars," then we should all make plans to stay home that night or take a cab.

    They aren't fucking around with drinking and driving anymore and haven't been for a few years now, but people keep missing the message. If you are caught, you will lose two paychecks minimum. If you crash, you will probably lose more. If you kill someone, you will go to jail for 10 years at least (based on the most recent two or three incidents).
Another rumor has the most recent promotional lists coming down. Certain people saw J-Fed on "Chicago Tonight" and interpreted some of his comments as perhaps there was a chance of the lists coming down. We don't have a transcript of the show, so we can't make a judgment on any of it, but we will say this - tests cost money. $4 million or so per test. The City might fight tooth and nail for these lists to exist for a bit yet. That being said, a few points:
  • The Lieutenants Test was probably the most crookedly run test we've ever seen. Mark Brown from the Sun Times had the questions published in his columns weeks before the "re-test" took place. How can that test a supervisor's ability to "think on their feet" when they already know the questions?
  • Can someone (J-Fed) actually publish the criteria for "meri-clout-orious" promotions so that the rest of us shmucks actually have something to shoot for? Is there a certain number of arrests, part ones, search warrants, DUI's, curfews, ANOV's, parkers that we can do to have an actual shot at promotion? Or is it only by blood, birthright, and trading for sex and/or money that you get ahead?
  • Can one of J-Fed's accounting buddies look into the statistical anomalies that somehow result in people who work for so called "subject matter experts" always scoring the top slots in exams? The number one, two and most of the top twenty-five spots always seem to come from some Deputy Superintendents office at HQ. We took a statistics course once and it's leads to some interesting questions.
You want to know why there are so many leadership problems with this Department? Look no further that the testing process. We aren't getting leaders. Not at all.

The Lt test was an opinion it wasn't based on fact. One of the choices was to inform the roll call about a murderer but the answer was read the DIBS, DOC and daily bulletin. Biggane was number 1 after scoring terribly the first time she took the LT test I guess being a secretary for the Sup doesn't hurt.

Saw the interview J Fed said he wants to take a look at the political promotions meaning merit. At one of the roll calls he said he is revising the way merit picks are done. The list is not coming down and even if it did there would not be a new one for almost two years. So does that mean no promotions for two years? Dont think so.

Looks like the FOP is 100% in bed with the City of Chicago. I don't believe they ever consulted with their members.

His name is Mike Birmingham. I don't know that he put him in his place by any means but he definitely did ask him the tough questions, which I think were answered for the most part. You will never make everyone happy. Sorry guys there will be no 10 or 12 hr. days, 6 and 3 looks like the most feasible alternative.

Kennedy and Gerogas are two of the most stand-up guys on this department. Anybody that disagrees is either jealous or does not know them. Most people that complain about bosses on this job have a problem with authority and would never make it in the private sector. I have worked for both of them and would work for them any day if I had the chance.

2/20/2008 12:30:00 PM
Go back to TRU you fucking tool. Gerogas is an arrogant asshole. Our only hope is Richie's heart explodes and Steve and his sister Mara Gerogas get replaced with with some people with class who actually were raised to treat other people with respect regardless of the fact they might be their subordinates.

Gerogas is the problem with the promotion process, merit sgt, merit lt, merit commander.

lets face it they should do away with all merit promotions, or make all promotions merit. its unfair to those close on the list to promote an inferior candidate. why because he wrote more parkers and movers (city tax collector )maybe they should promote traffic aids or stop light cameras. this dept is becoming more like suburbs everyday. some people may like that, i for one dont.we used to be the cops from 68 convention, when wto came to town a few years back our reputation alone kept things quite.(not some boss's great planning)dont get me wrong guys i know those days are over for good or bad.we are now just like the traffic cameras, robots. soon i believe like naperville we will be writing each other tickets, as our discression will be more and more taken away. the more rules they put in the less we have to think. alot of people like that. welcome to the nanny state and we are more and more becoming its tools.

I will say this. I scored under 400 on the dicks exam and under 300 on the sgts exam. The tests come down and the city gets yet another do nothing.

I don't know anybody and I have zero clout. I have worked the street for over 10 years now. I don't have time to study in the car. I studied for the tests on my own time. I love how people who didn't study want the tests to come down. To those who scored poorly, take a long look in the mirror.

I know that the tests are rigged for the special people but, that being said the CPD is better than any suburb for promotions. Clout is the only factor in the burbs.

I recently met a few merit Sgts. The merit Sgts I met were the working police. I thought both of them made it by score.

I can say this. The most useless Sgts I've met made it by score. The Sgts had never worked the street and were house mouses as PO's. I know I'm not alone in the opinion that studying on the citys time had to help.

The merit process needs to be streamlined yes. Merit is here to stay so we need to have it be an open and transparent process. I have no doubts that some real hacks made their ranks by who they know and not what they did.

Any word on the condition of the PO's involved in this?

===================================

One person was killed, and five others, including two Chicago police officers, injured in an overnight traffic crash on the city's Southeast Side.

The accident happened about midnight Wednesday in the 9200 block of South Paxton Avenue, said Eve Rodriguez, a Chicago Fire Department spokeswoman.

Eric Gray, 21, of the 2200 block of East 92nd Street, was pronounced dead at 3:45 a.m. at Northwestern Memorial Hospital, according to the Cook County medical examiner's office.




Police said the officers suffered non-life-threatening injuries. Three civilians were taken to Advocate Trinity Hospital and Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn, but the severity of their injuries was not immediately known.

Chicago police said the officers were in their squad car, and Gray was a passenger in the other vehicle involved in the crash.

Further details were unavailable Thursday morning.

Lt. Biggane, like 15 others in her class, earned her promotion by studying and doing well on the exam. Get over it!

A reliable source says m. buggane was provided with an abbreviated study material guide that allows one to concentrate on the subjects that the questions are drawn from.

The majority of disconnected candidates studied a much broader set of material that diluted their thought structure.

One of the most controversial questions involved knowledge that a detective, patrol officer, and an evidence technician would have simultaneously.

The test was cleverly contructed to favor the informed.

Rigged is such a strong word, but advantages: absolutely. When you have a bunch of college kids grading the written part, they know nothing about the job.
Lets say the question is "What is parked in the east lot of Bell School?" If the correct answer was School Bus and instead you wrote, large yellow multipassenger vehicle that is responsible for transporting students to and from their school, well, if the person grading the test (Joe College) knows nothing about what a school bus is, then they'd score that question as wrong, simply because they didnt use the word that was on the answer key. You can explain everything in detail, but if you dont use the right 'catch phrases' then you dont get the points. Those 'secret' classes are the ones that teach you in 'catchpraseology' so you are assured the max points. Yes, all the information is out there to learn, but it isnt being graded on the same level.
If you were sitting in the same study group I was, you might too have been in the first class made but alas, you didnt make friends in the right places.
I would have helped out earlier but like the rest of my classmates, I had to sign off on agreeing not to share my study materials with anyone not involved in the class.

Interesting if true... but they're the ones that had to REMEMBER THE ANSWERS! If they didnt do that then they wouldnt have scored so well. They obviously must deserve their spots.

Go back to TRU you fucking tool. Gerogas is an arrogant asshole. Our only hope is Richie's heart explodes and Steve and his sister Mara Gerogas get replaced with with some people with class who actually were raised to treat other people with respect regardless of the fact they might be their subordinates.

Gerogas is the problem with the promotion process, merit sgt, merit lt, merit commander.

Him and Mara are not related for the millionth time. I have worked for both, they were good bosses, yes they were probably spoon-fed the test, but they became good bosses. If you don't like them you are a dog or jealous. We can't change the political climate, but we can hope that some of those that do benefit from it become good bosses. Say what you will, but they did learn from the best.

The Lt test was an opinion it wasn't based on fact. One of the choices was to inform the roll call about a murderer but the answer was read the DIBS, DOC and daily bulletin. Biggane was number 1 after scoring terribly the first time she took the LT test I guess being a secretary for the Sup doesn't hurt.

Not true I was in the top 10 and I did warn about the murderer. Officer safety was key.

I studied on my own at home during the day and worked afternoons. Only had the materials that were available to anyone. I hate the promotional process as much as anyone, especially the 30% merit, however, I pray the city keeps this list up for a few years. I'm sure if you were in my shoes you would want the same thing. Start fresh with the next test and new contract. Don't change the rules halfway through the game.

To the credit of Deputy Supt. of Patrol Beatrice Cuello, I understand that she recently offered to return 10th Dist. PO Dannye Ward to his old stomping grounds on 16th St. (Beat 1014) to the chagrin and consternation of 24th Ward uberbitch Sharon Denise Dixon.

A good start for your credibility, Ms. Cuello.

Now, if only J-Fed would come out and actually do something about the cancer of clout ("merit") that permeates assignments and promotions in the CPD. Break this lethal stranglehold on the morale, sir. Other "problems" will then be resolved. The defining key to your success is a relentless attack on the political clout monster. It is critical.

I wholeheartedly agree with an earlier poster that proposed that J-Fed have all sworn CPD take the standardized Wonderlic, 12 minute, 50 item, multiple choice intelligence test.

A side note; at the NFL combine which begins in Indy today, the Wonderlic is included with 40 yard dash times, etc. to evaluate future NFL prospects.
Several years ago, one player, a Harvard punter, recorded a perfect score of 50. Conversely, a moron's score on the Wonderlic does not affect a stupid college linebacker from becoming a perennial All-Pro.

Since Supt. Weis just stepped into this CPD Pandora's box, it could prove most helpful if he could readily identify those that score at both extremes of the bell curve.

Don't get too cocky about the Dannye Ward thing, Bea. The conscience of the CPD will be standing watch.

Problem: Who to support for FOP positions in the upcoming election?

Bigger problem: Of the over 12,000 sworn members below the rank of Sgt. who might perhaps run for FOP elective office LESS THAN 100 actually went to the minimum number of FOP General Meetings in 2007 and thus are eligible to run.

Yes, that's right, LESS THAN 100 OF YOU COMPLAINING BITCHES EVEN BOTHERED TO GO TO 5 FOP MEETINGS.

So if you want to complain about the FOP then go home and look in the mirror because it is ALL YOUR OWN FAULT!

I am sick of hearing constant complaining in the locker room by people who don't know what the hell they are talking about and don't ever go to a meeting and don't really know the issues or what it takes to get a City run by Richard M. Daley to sit down and bargain in good faith.

Don't like who is running the FOP? Then put together a slate of viable candidates, learn the process, run for office, spend your own money on literature, mailings etc. and take lots of time off to spread the word of your message and get elected to something and then you can change it to your liking. Or so you think.

Only those who have never participated in the process think it is as easy as saying "Why doesn't the FOP do something?"

Hey, all you 12,000 plus officers below the rank of Sgt. who are NOT eligible to run for elective FOP office, YOU ARE TO BLAME. You have the power to change things but you do nothing but endlessly debate the merits of coppers driving while drunk and how many years in prison you might have to do.

Get involved, help the process along or shut the fuck up.

Lt. Biggane, like 15 others in her class, earned her promotion by studying and doing well on the exam. Get over it!"

The Sup has nothing to do with it. The subject matter experts have their own agenda, and the answers. And don't give me that bullshit about how they still had to memorize the answers. The hardest part about the test is knowing what to study from the volumes of info given. Just follow the trail to the subject matter experts they are associated with. Georges and Kennedy? Casey and Flores? Biggane? How many worked for or were "good friends" with subject matter experts? We wonder why we have so many rule 14 violations as a department. We learn by example.

I finished near 100, might get promoted, I might not, but whatever happens, it will happen based on the effort I put in. Put in some time on the books, apply what you have learned on the street, and you can do ok. If you don't want to work at it, you will do shitty.

Those same sgt's. don't know a thing about leadership or integrity but plenty about getting along with CPD bosses, covering shit up, ducking early etc.

Weis needs a lifetime contract because that is what it will take to make the CPD into a professional organization. It won't happen here. Some changes will be made but then, back to normal.

Weiss is part of the tap dance Daley is doing to fend off a Fed consent decree and get the Olympics. As usual he pulls off an incredibly brilliant move that won't do much and he looks good in the process.

I've got to hand it to Daley, he is a master strategist and tactician, I detest the man and the corruption he brings to the table but he is good at what he does.

In regard to the Georgas and Kennedy comments, we shouldn't blame them for all that has been literally handed to them. They were both (and other participant's in this particular click who shall remain nameless), very fortunate to have been taken under the wing of one of the last and best "Old School" bosses, Jimmy Maurer. Before Maurer retired he fought long and hard to put together a traveling tactical unit which is now called TRU. This unit was Maurer's idea from the start. The unit was approved as a result of the Trans Atlantic Business Conference that took place at the
Sheraton Hotel. Remember how tough the the goone squad looked on TV. Well, the unit got the big ok after that big show of police presence. Of course, Maurer picked both Georgas and Kennedy to run the unit since at the time of the units implementation, they both worked at the Chief's office. So, we have them to thank for the unit. However, before Maurer retired, he moved his final checkers putting in place, Georgas as the acting commander of the Marine Unit, Kennedy as the acting commander of TRU and others that were placed in other nice spots. I remember all the buss about the newly made Lt.'s getting made acting commander's of unit's they knew nothing about. From what I remember hearing, a Lt. with diving certifications and with years of boating experience getting passed up. Then when Georgas was made commander of 018, Kennedy took the seat that Georgas had left in the Marine Unit. Oh, well! Someone had to have confidence in the leadership abilities of these guys (and others in this click), to constantly give them units of this caliver. It is what it is, and I think that those last checkers moved where part of the old police culture, a culture where bosses always looked out for their people. This department was founded on that principle and I think that most officer's without that type of "Clout" just don't understand it or accept it. I know both men mentioned and I think that they have learned alot along the way, even if they are still way younger than most bosses.

was perusing the Department website yesterday and stumbled upon Matt Tobias' resume on the Academy page. In his illustrious career he has received a whopping one, count'em ONE, department commendation and like 40 honorable mentions. Obviously his merit exempt spots weren't based on his police work. Sad.


___________________________________


You obviously don't know shiut and have 2 yrs on the job. Awards are nice but 80% of them don't even get typed up. Honorable Mentions...........Fuck I seen people get them for CTTV with misdameanor weed in slow districts up north AND THEIR ARE POSTED ON A BULLETIN BOARD UNFUKIN REAL!...ALso seen a couple for PCS witha weapon tur in WTF IS THAT?.....Come to the ghetto districts where you used to get a gun a week or a robbery pinch and get jack shit cuz the lazy SGT who is stuck there doesn't want to do anything.

I won't even talk about how many names ended up on a couple homicide cases we caught the offenders for for DC's By the time it left the Det division there were 15 names on that MF'r.

Won't even mention how in many districts P.O.s write up thier own awards. Guess if the Sgt aint gonna do it someone should.


SO just because you don't have awards doesn't mean you 're not a fucking working copper or just because you have them doesn't mean you are one. Paper jumping has been around as long a clout. For those of the bosses that actually fill stuff out and present it I applaud you. That's the way it should be done.
IF you pull you complimentary history on the dept page it's so FUKED ANYWAYS that it's missing half the stuff cuz shnanay be puttin it in there in between doing her nails and hair.


Take you 2yr on the job ass and you strie for awards and stick it in your ass. Half the HM's are fukin paper jumped anyways by whole tact teams in whoich one car gota pinch and threw the rest of the team on there. Again all those words you apew prove yet again you need to dry the wetness from behind you ears and fix your feauhawk

Just so you know, the State's Attorney's Office could still decide to do an end-run around the judge and direct indict the case.

Either way, I wouldn't be resting easy yet if I were him.

2/21/2008 03:50:00 PM

I hope they do. Then, after all the lack of evidence is presented and the case is tossed a second time, JA will then have a GREAT case in a civil court for malicious prosecution. A judge throws out the case but a grand jury indicts even after the SAO knows this case will go no where? Puts the man through 2 years or so of undue headaches and financial strains... what a GREAT case for a civil court room. Its a grand slam. If I were JA, secretly Id be hoping for an indictment good things come to those who wait...

ps Id go on the offensive and sue the family ofthe offender for having to have gone through this experience because it is a FACT the offender was drunk!

". You're saying that the Superintendent of Police helped out some female sergeant before he helped out his own son?
"

That's how clout often works. Too cover the tracks a little, one corrupt filthy clout ridden hack helps another's bitch, and the other helps his. Unfortunately for our current subject, his scooter threw a bearing in the middle of the run.

Of course, sometimes they don't care and just go out and hire the best man at their wedding.

Too risky right now, with J-Fed sniffing around.

I'd be willing to bet though, a year or two from now, there will be some bars and a phat gig in gang intel waiting.

No friend of Tobias but the number of awards you get mean nothing. Having always worked the south side I've seen and experienced the disparately between the north side and south when it comes to awards and discipline. For the amount of guns and burglars and stick up men the south side coppers get in a year could make a north side guy's career. I've personally locked up four people for murder, all separate cases and haven't got much more then Tobias to show for it. And lets not even get started on the guns, dope, hot cars and burglars..Know a copper who was shot on the south side and he didn't get his award until three years later..and he got it at his units Christmas party not the event at city hall like the north siders...Yea, thanks for almost making the ultimate sacrifice officer, we'll get around to you eventually...nice.....,

And how is one NOT to take offense to this? If you wanna work, you can come to 018 on 1st watch in the summer or on weekends all year round. You can reason with a gangbanger... you can reason with someone jumpin on their baby daddy or baby momma... you can even reason with a mental sometimes, but you can never reason with a drunk. Look at the influx of suburbanite and urbanite alcoholics that flock to 018 to drink. Its a different kind of police work, but its police work none-the-less.

No, he will go up not down, and he does work nights on the weekends and is out on the street, he is an exempt rank and must attend all their meetings, which are on days.

I don't want to know your test scores nor do I want to know about your BEAT car experience. WHAT I DO WANT TO KNOW IS HOW THE HELL YOU TYPE WITH JUST YOUR THUMBS?

What language is this anyway

How many take home cars are at the Academy? Even POs get a take home cars-nice. That and less than 8 hour days.

**Take your meds cuz you are delusional!

What take home cars? Even LTS do not have cars. Most of the cars used for recruits are in bad shape, 5 years old or more. Radios not used on street any more. 8 hour work days? For some staff, yes. Others sign in and play houdini. AC, where are you? Show your face sometime.

The academy has the best POs teaching and yes they do work full 8 hour days. Most have been selected to work there. Get a life! The ADS had values that you asshats wouldnt understand. He is going nowhere.

Ashat....Full 8 hours? maybe in your dreams. Sign in, workout 3 hours, go home. Or sign in, go home. Going nowhere but doing nothing. This 5 year wonder has seen enough. Why leave when I can relax? AC, where are you? PLEASE!!!

Yeah you are the best,we are envious oh great one...please get over yourself, nobody cares, stay on the south side and step and fetch for teh people who appreciate it the least, p.s. we make the same money....

.....................................
This officer wasn't saying he's the best just pointing out a truth about an unfair system. And as for making the same money, I doubt it. You get paid to go to court but then you'd probably not know that. And as for the guy who talked about summer nights in 018, oh please. Yea, you handle drunks like you guys did the night of the first Bull's Championship. You let Rush street get so out of hand that two hours later the whole city went up for grabs. Everyone saw you guys do nothing and then the poop hit the fan. Worked special in housing all last summer and never saw an 018th district car in the row houses or near the high rises. But take a walk down Rush street some day and you'll find 3/4's of the 018th district coppers. Saw one guy one night with his shirt unbuttoned, probably the top four or five buttons. He had a sleeveless T on and the gold chains hanging out for all to see. But the inspectors were probably in Englewood writing up a cooper for having exposed hand cuffs. Working special has really opened my eyes to just how lazy you north side coppers are. I'd love to see a real pay differential for coopers who work in working districts..10% of this department does all the work...Get rid of the 80% and pay the 20% their due...

This job used to be fun. Remember when Tobias used to fix his hair and walk just like Dart? That was fun. How come every greek family has a brother named Spiro? What's up with that? I took 5 sgt tests and I couldn't pass so I didn't bitch and moan. I just went and had the bars sewn on all my stuff. I KNEW no one was going to notice. I just showed up in 011 like 3 years ago. Everyone has been so nice to me. Hey Sarge this, Yo Sarge that. I can't write you a HM fast enough. Now I don't get the money OK. But nobody knows that but me. I do however get the respect. And it's fun. See, I take my fun where I find it. I learned that from Matt. I'm no Asshat. Cry your own F'n River!

Might as well hang a sign out in front of every northside station that reads "closed--will open again at 3 o'clock pm".



Really, then tell me the powers that be over the years have been sending TRU, SOS, Gangs North, Gangs West and basically detailing them to South Side districts for the last 25 years. It looks like the southside coppers work only 1000 to 1300 hours on a good day.

Why, No. side should get the pay differential. We have to pay top $ for housing, we can't by a trailer.

Inspectors are Lt put them in the districts. Those guys get paid all that money to insult the troops, talk down to them and who monitors them. Unit and Districts whould be responsible for their me and women. These guys can do whatever they want and nobody watches them. That is wrong. I hope the new boss will get new blood and get rid of the ones you have now, these guys think they are the Superintendent.

oh come on. you worked special and you saw the row houses? all I did was sleep and cruise the bars till the cars got taken away (for, you guessed it: sleeping and cruising the bars instead of being in the jets). gimme a break. and because a bunch of suburbanite assholes empty out into the street when there's nothing but bars on that street, how does that turn into the west side going up for grabs when there's maybe a single bar on the block, if that? think about it. 200 people leaving 20 bars is 4000 people all hitting the street at once on one block downtown. No one coulda controlled that... northside, southside, westside.. no one.
