Maher Out

Confirmed through a 35th Street source. Papers are in.

Jewel and Dominick's have DOUBLED their cake output in anticipation of a number of retirements coming up. Frosting is standing by and an extra decorator has been put on short notice alert.
That is all.

Supt, Weis, my dear man.
I hope this is only the beginning of a lasting show of confidence for your rank and file.

May the airports be your next target. Rid the varmin before the next scandal breaks.

There are so very many vindictive and treacherous individuals spewing venom throughout the CPD right now.

The only way to cure cancer is to cut it out and destroy it before it spreads.

J-Fed must pickup the pace, there are seditious and treasonous members of the CPD plotting to harm and bring embarassment to you!!!

Rely upon your own for true loyalty!!!

It will be fun to see what "Politically" correct person gets the Chief of Dets job. Daley's puppet, J-Fed has promoted a female latina, a black, and a white. Perfect, so far as the lil moron on the 5th floor is concerned. But now what?

Possible a gay muslim cross dressing dwarf who has converted to judaism? Daley can cover a lot of bases with that one.

Does anyone know if they are going to scrap the Dets. Test List?? I scored in the lower 300's and was hoping to get the promotion. I studied hard, I have no clout, and I would like to get out of patrol..
I think that they were around 230 off the list as of now, and they have not made a class this fiscal year. I just hope they are not going to scrap the list...
Any inside info would be great.
thanks

I had the misfortune of having to be a part of the daily aggravated battery meetings with D/C Maher back in A/5. I found through experience that she is one ingorant and beligerant individual. I, and others there, were treated as if we were little children.

She truly was promoted far beyond her level of incompetence! Had she not been a well-endowed female Hispanic officer, she would never have risen past the rank of patrolman.

Maria, while you may not be a bad person, you sucked as both a police officer and superisor. Don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out!

As her last official act Chief Maher should update the homicide count.

She was the last foil for "Fat Phil´s" manipulation of the homicide count to make him look like a wizard.

She and the two detective´s who work outside the Chief´s office have been manipulating the count just like Malloy did after being shown how by Cline.

Many death investigations that were homicides prior to Cline are now being carried as death investigations.

That made Cline look good but phony classifications do not help CPD.

Weis should let Pam Zekman conduct an audit.

Remember that Cline, Grau and Maher said the Medical Examiner was wrong in stating individuals deaths were homicides!

Holy mislead Batman!!!

Is the glass half full or half empty?

In response to the Jody Weis Fan who believes that “many vindictive and treacherous individuals spewing venom throughout the CPD right now.” I say this to you, do you mean to tell me all of a sudden these venom came out of nowhere to attack J-Fed? Critics have been around since the invention of politics and theater. Its no accident that the right to free speech is the first amendment. It is an American right and tradition to criticize and embarrass our politicians and leaders by pointing out their hypocrisy.

Do you remember the 025th District Gallows and Curtin, the mayor’s babysitter? It didn’t take long before others followed that blazing trail. Since the practical use of the internet. Blogs have replaced public forums by way we express our opinions of injustices and share knowledge with each other hyper speed. Image over 10,000 hits SCC! How proud you must feel to have accomplish such a feat!

J-Fed is getting paid very well to get his ass kick! Don’t feel too sorry for him, I don’t. J-Fed is not measuring morale by attending roll calls alone. He would be foolish to. Why we all wear the public mask. We rarely tell the boss he is full of shit to his face. Maybe in private but, never publicly. Its human nature, revenge is too! No police officer, unless insane, would harm him. You are truly a silly fucker.

J-Fed brings embarrassment onto himself when he makes selections of personnel to lead us who have history with this organization. Its like living in a small town everyone knows who the fuck ups are! I know unreliable information is put out there and the truth is a casualty on the net. But, I will choose what to believe and actions speak louder than words. J-Fed really fuck up. If he gave a dam he would select the finest and smartest. Maybe he doesn’t know who they are? Tell him who you want as leaders and why! Let him read it. Don’t just complaint! Provide a solution! He’s got their resumes or maybe the mayor still has them in his garbage can.

Change can be good. Maybe it will be. Certainly some of the people gone are no loss, kind of like Ben Wallace being traded by the Bulls, addition by subtraction. However, that being said, J-Fed is not responsible for any of these changes or appointments, except for the new guy in the new bureau and the new Chief of Dick's, kinda,

City Hall is orchestrating this, make no mistake about this! Unlike when Cline was here and he got to make picks along with City Hall, and Cline's promotions were mostly terrible, Kolman, Maher, Caluris, Cronin, etc. at least Daley didn't control it all, now he does and that really scares me.

The next wave of promotions will be very telling. But please don't credit J-Fed for cleaning house. He's the highly paid front man for the mayor.

Supt. WEISS...
Thank you for seeing the enormity of the mistake of putting Maria Maher in her former position. Now please realize that there is a web of clout babies under her and former Area 5 Cmmdr., Supt Cline. Please look into Area 5 which is the former stomping grounds of both of these exempts. As you know, all Sgt's and Lt's are handpicked for the Area's. Most have never been detectives. Some have been detectives for as little as 6 months while they were waiting for their next meritorious position of Sgt. After all of 6 months back in patrol, they mysteriously reappear in the D unit. Please see the wrong in this process. There are but a few supervisory personnel in place who deserve the spot. More are doing time in patrol and would excel in that position. Please look at leadership, experience, and ability when these spots are filled. Routinely, Investigations are hindered by outright poor management decisions, Outrageously, it seems no one really cares or knows about what detectives actually need to get the job done. I have been outright lied to by my superiors on several occasions, and my suspects were sent home at the end of my tour in the middle of several ongoing investigations and there is no recourse. Overtime should not be a restriction in an ongoing investigation. A good supervisor can tell the difference. Please put the merit back into the merit process if their must be one! Hint......Meritorious promotions are clout driven. I am also sure you know that many of the recent meritorious nominees to Sgt. did not bother to take the second half of the promotional exam. Former Supt Cline did not seem to have a problem with that. Whack all the Lt's, and most of the Sgts. in the Area's I will not name names. I believe you can see their insincerity as any police officer can. Experience and strong leadership are rare here. I believe a difference can be made when the right people are in place to make the right decisions. This is not an isolated incident. I believe a similar pattern exists across the city, within the Area's and throughout CPD. I know change cant happen overnight. I look forward to your future decisions.

Ps. Jackson as 1st Dep? Is that closer to the door?

Maher has the last laugh with her six-figure annual pension.

When an appointment of an incompetent to a command position is such a flagrant waste of taxpayer dollars, there must be accountability.

Both Maher and the person(s) that elevated her to exempt positions should be ordered to repay the pension fund.

An impartial factfinder could present a stronger argument for Maher being selected as the pope rather than chief of detectives.

If you knew about those political hacks employed by Cook County hired to perform autopsies you wouldn’t be listening to Pam Zekman’s line of bull shit. The media will never be my guiding light.

Hey SCC!!! Can you hear the cries and screams at work yet from the few that already hate Jody?

What I love about all these "resignations/retirements" are the curses and pouting of P.O's that have lost their juice, family clout, and phone calls. Suddenly they are running scared, they don't know whose ass to kiss anymore and are regretting the bridges they burned long ago. Their cushy spots are not so set in stone as they once believed and the promised spots are now lost.

Goes to show everybody... Treat each other as you would like to be treated cuz you NEVER know who can become a boss in the future.

For now the CPD playing field is being leveled and the pot is being stirred. There is new hope in the department and everyone is carefully watching... For many, it is exciting times but for others a nightmare. When the dust finally settles from Jody's revamping of CPD, watch for the forming of new alliances and the banishing of those whom are deemed not worthy. For those who never had it, new fruit will bloom bearing many P.O.'s with juice. Lines will be ringing off the hook with the many new phone calls. Some old bricks will be tossed aside and of course, new bricks will be laid. A new clout will be born... But beware, some of the old will still be mixed in with a lot of the new. Lets just hope that this change helps all P.O.'s. in the long run.

Be safe out there everybody.

******************************************
It is my guess that in the upcoming FOP elections the top of the ticket will win without any trouble. The incumbents are all running against weak opponents from the nut job ticket. And Jans and Jaglowski are both controlled by Wayne the puppet master. The only contested elections are for Sgt-at-arms and Trustee. Two candidates for trustee are trying to double-dip. Steve Robbins gets a salary from working at the pension board and Duckhorn gets a stipend from being our Rep to the State Lodge in addition to his pension. And do we really need a husband and wife team on the board? The Hudik’s are both max’ed and can retire any day. And Trevino also openly talks about retiring and moving out of state in 2009 too! And now that Sgt. Majerczyk is off the board will his sister be able to get a word in edge wise?

Tim Fallon’s bio on his team’s website is empty sort of like his real life personality. He has said that having too many retiree’s on the board kills us because they can not be on the Negotiating Team. But his team has put at least four retirees on their ticket. Retirees vote at such I high percentage that these guys are all shoe-ins. I can’t vote for the Nut Job Jans Ticket either. If you take the candidate list and line out the retiree’s, the nut job ticket and cronies that leaves the following independent group of people. I know 6 P.O.’s on the list personally and they are all standup people. Here is my UNSCIENTIFIC list of 16 that leaves one wild card. Not perfect by any means but consider the alternatives.

If you are a worker she will bend over backwards for you, personally or professionally. All I can say is I hope you retiremnt is long and great. Chief Maher you will be missed by many people you have had contact with. After you retire, maybe you can be our therapist with all the crap that this department is going to dish out. BIS new DS is will always be a clone of JC. He never had any class and always held unsubstatiated grudges also. Hopefully you are not as miserable as JC and learn that personal vendettas againt certrain person, mostly female, should not be held based on their gender and not their work and knowledge.

TO: "I'm not a Maher fan but she was right in calling Peterson a F*$#ing asshole!"

Peterson will run circles around her. He might be harsh at times but he knows what he is doing.

She screamed and mutha-f*#ked people because she didn't know anything about detective work.

He screamed when dets were lazy and slacking- big difference. You were most likely one of the ignorant bastards he yelled at.

Good move, Jody.

This department is so pathetically young and stupid. Do we have to spell it out for you? We spell their name incorrectly on purpose. When you get older and more experienced, maybe, just maybe, you will understand why.

Agree with this and the rest of this post. There is a certain sexism going on with all the criticism of Maher. Many male bosses are worse. As angry as she gets she is not one to hold a grudge or hurt someone. There are lots of vindictive bosses on this job. She is not one of them.

You can say what you want about Peterson being an idiot, but he was one hell of a good detective in his day. On his worse day, he was better then probably 90% of what works in the Detective Units today....

With regards to airport staff personnel.
One staff member with a mon-fri week works every saturday at time and one half and has the checks sent to the 3rd district.

You do the math. Assuming this office lice works just 40 saturdays at 35.00 per hour at
time and one/half equals $52.50 per hour.
40 saturdays equals 480 hours at 35.00 which produces a grand annual total of: Drum roll please !$16,800

After I work 6 days in a day off group. Do you think I want to work my RDO?

Talk about a cushy spot for airport staff.

The other comment about "staff still at work at 1900 hours" is that her hours are 1200-2000. Better than banker's hours, huh?

Stop posting here Peterson. The fact of the matter is nobody likes you. Cops from your own PD, and then every single other one say you are and always have been a big stupid jerk. You thought you knew everything, and they all laughed because your way was always wrong. Will County SA's and PD's and Investigators, court people. The gig's up, but we don't care. We are having Union stuff here. So fuck off handjob. Go find some chick to murder.

Are you that detached from reality that you would attempt to validate a emotionally disturbed psychotic bitch?
My favorite is the time @ the Puerto Rican Parade committee meeting when one of the locals popped her in the face & knocked her on her ass. He was taken to 014 but Maria refused to sign complainants for Battery.
Why is that??

Give me a break, you must be one of the SKULL's pathetic suck-holes who say "How High Sir" when he says "Jump, Bitch" and run over to him everytime he says "Time to rub the bunyons". Did you forget how many great detectives he ran out of Area 4 when he took over, now who do they have at Area 4, a bunch of know-nothings running Homicide Investigations, while the good detectives that don't play ball are shunned to RBT or SVU. Hopefully the SKULL takes some of his useless suck-hole supervisors with him and Area 4 finally gets quality supervisors and detectives to run the show. Lets not forget how the SKULL and his idiots ruined the murder investigation of a P.O., but of course he blamed it on 35th Street.

Congratulations, I suppose you are one of the "good" detectives then. I got news for you- if they are "know-nothings" it's your fault. You're supposed to teach the new guys how to do it right, not sit and bitch like a little baby.

John Farrell is a very bright, experienced and athletic 61 years old. Despite his widespread experiences in the hellholes of this city and the admiration and respect of other officers (except you), he remains modest (to a fault in my opinion).

You "ANONYMOUS", cowardly cocksucker. Who the fuck are you to snipe at an officer of Farrell's caliber from behind your keyboard?

Obvously you are one of those "know nothing clout guys" because you missed the point. The writer was making a statement of fact regarding how many veteran, experienced Detectives left Area 4 after the BONEHEADED SKULL came in and destroyed one of the better Areas in the city. The SKULL depleated Area 4 of experienced Detectives and brought in a bunch on new dicks that were not trained properly because there was no veteran leadership and the SKULL's suckhole sgts (R.C. & J.B) know nothing about being a supervisor, let alone a supervisor of detectives. Through no fault of their own, this new breed of Homicide Detectives in Area 4, are running around like "a puppy chasing his own tail" conducting complex investigations and their supervisors are the "blind leading the blind". All this ultimately reflects on the SKULL and his leadership skills or lack of, which should scare the hell out of anybody when you realize that this IDIOT was just placed in charge of Investigative Services.

The sawed off bitch cut the legs out from under anyone that would not kiss her ass and tell her how great she was. Many of good Sgts and Pos that refused to be rats snitches or join her ranks felt her rath by being dumped and her minions would then talk shit about them to try and ruin reputations. The only backers she has are the ones that sucked her ass and accepted bullshit promotions or cush gigs. ie A/5 gun teams 014, 025 tact gangs and the many Dets that she made. pull your head out yopur ass if you thought she was any kind of decent boss or person.
