More Blatant Falsehoods

The quotes from J-Fed just keep on defying what we know to be reality. The latest:
  • "If you work hard and do a good job, you will move up no matter who you know," Weis said after a swearing-in ceremony for dozens of commanders.
Bwahahahahahahaha. Oh lord. Please excuse us... hahahahaha.

Let's just point out a few of these people who are doing such a "good job"
  • Moy - triple "merit." Worked how many hours in Patrol? Always been downtown
  • Martinez - triple "merit." LAPA through and through
  • Avila - double "merit" and possibly related to the governor via marriage?
  • Martin - double "merit," possibly triple
  • Crump-Hales - double "merit" at least and so lacking in knowledge, she actually cost the City a few hundred thousand in reverse discrimination cases backing Marianne Perry
We're sure people who have been around the block a bit more than us have even more stories about how qualified certain people are (or aren't) for these jobs. Might some grow into them? Sure, but the chances are slim. You learn to lead by knowing your job and the jobs of your people, not house mousing downtown.

We're not thrilled with a number of J-Fed's choices. We'll see if our opinions bear out this disappointment. A lot of it will rely on how much responsibility J-Fed makes his commanders assume. If he fires a few of them in the first 60 to 90 days, we'd be more impressed than not.

this is an email that was sent out, by William O'donnell to all persons with dept. emails. I never met the man, but just from reading this letter he appears to be a man of class and one who deserved more respect that was given to him by the new regime.. Friends and colleagues,
I wore my uniform for the final time yesterday. Twenty-five years ago, when I graduated from the academy, I didn't think I could be more proud to wear the uniform of a Chicago Police Officer. But yesterday morning, I felt far prouder to wear my uniform in this city full of people who I have served and helped to protect for nearly half my life. I'll cherish that moment forever.
It has been an honor to work among you. As you continue to keep watch over our great city, keep yourselves safe--and have fun. I know I did. I loved every minute, just as my father did before me and my daughter will after me.
Now that I'm walking into my "sunset years" at the ripe old age of 51 (it is my birthday today), I'd like to say that I'll always treasure your friendship, loyalty, and professionalism. And I'll never take for granted the opportunity I had to work for some of the greats, Terry Hillard and Harvey Radney, who live by these virtues every day.
When I'm casting for smallmouth and sipping a mug of Bailey's-laced coffee at daybreak on our lake, I'll smile and think of you.

Judy Martin was a great Captain to work for in 010. We shall miss her.

It is my understanding that then ADS Karen Rowan pushed Hillard to promote her to be a merit lieutenant and she was appointed a Captain by Cline.

She does have a master degree and was a hard working patrolman in both VCS and Narcotics.

Her husband was a major donor, he is a trial lawyer, to the memorial fund.

I think she deserves everything she got.

I would guess promoting Captains who pledge their allegiance to the new regime will be Jody's next move. There are only 64 Captains on the books and a few of those are extended medicals. All you old fuck Lt.s who have been sticking around probably don't have a chance since he will probably want some younger guys that he can brain wash.

Judy, you clearly are staying up way too late or getting up way too early to start writing about yourself. Why would Karen Rowan put you in for anything you never worked for her. You are the biggest horses ass on the department(or at least close). Go brag somewhere else how you knew you were going to be promoted in the first Sgt's, Lt's and capt's rank when you became eligible.

You were a dog as a P.O. but you were taken care of by another former head of IAD as you had taken care of him. Go away you floozy moron.

Judy Martin, triple promotion. Did not take second part of Lt's test because she said she didn't need to, she would be taken care of.

It is not so much that some of these merit promotions are bad, but is POLITICS and CLOUT. J-Fed implied we were getting away from this. As Good a Martin might be, there are P.O.'s out there right now who could have been Sgt's . Lt's etc if it were an even playing field. i can get one jump, but not 2 or 3. How much do they have to be helped?

Lo and behold when his daddy's whack didn't come through,(this time) and he looked like a bigger asshole than he normally is, he hit the medical for months, if not a year. Then he comes back and the merit Lt. spot is pushed through, then Merit Capt and merit Commander. Mr. J-Fed,or anyone else,please show me the hard work that Terrence William did? I dare you!

To all of the new Exempts. Enjoy your next three years. You will be beholden to J-Fed and da mayor.

Don't be surprised in three years (perhaps sooner) when J Fed has been replaced, you too, will have your heads lopped off and handed to you like the Exempts that you replaced, had done to them!

Your rank is an expendable commodity, and like the the old Jays slogan used to go, "Don't Worry, We'll Make More." Lets hope you have both time on the job and age before your let go.

To J- Fed, you may do wonderful things to the department while you are in charge. It will all come down to one or two bad press incidents and you too, like others before hand, will fall from grace and leave in shame.

Gee.....How come she could NEVER pass a promotional exam????? I'm really getting a little tired of this often repeated FALSEHOOD that there are these really great leaders except for some unknown reason they couldn't pass a promotional exam. The reality is that a TRUE leader dedicates him or her self to the process that the organization puts forth and COMPETES. A true leader finds a way to set aside personal comfort for a time and to study harder than every one else. Bowing to clout and political correctness is a recipe for perpetual mediocrity.

The reality is that the primary factor in ALL district commander assignments was race.

Many objectionable white supervisors were promoted because they are very connected. Many objectionable black supervisors were promoted because, in reality, there are very few black sergeants and lieutenants to choose from. Why?

First, in general, black officers do worse on promotional exams. Second, the number of "merit" promotions for any race is capped by the number of officers of that race who pass the 1st part of any exam. Therefore, black officers typically receive significantly less (total) merit promotions than white officers.

The city has to provide some objective "job related" basis for their merit promotions. They have used the first part of the test to give every race an almost equal opportunity of acheiving a merit promotion.

In reality, the city uses merit promotions to reward clout. So, if the city messes with the current racial formula and someone (of either race) sues, the first allegation is that the city is violating the Shakman decree. Theoretically, a federal judge could ban ALL merit promotions.

Now, if the city came up with a real "merit standard," they could promote supervisors of all races who are good, hardworking officers and would make good supervisors. The problem is that clout babies are almost always bad workers and that's who the city wants to promote.

Over the years, "merit" has taken on a racial connotation, but this isn't the whole truth. The truth is that "merit" for any race means "connected."

"Merit" supervisors are the people the city wants to run the department.

So, SCC, what the hell is the big surprise that multiple merit promotees are still being promoted?

New Cmdr John Ball was a dick in Area 1 in the mid 1990's when he was shot at by a bad guy. Ball was leaving work and some guy was firing at another fine citizen across 51st Street. Ball was caught between the two in his car. He jumped out and the guy either fired at him, or continued firing at the inteneded target. Ball fired at the shooter, but missed. The guy was grabbed and the whole production of the round table, Street Deputy etc. was undertaken. The dicks assigned got the guy charged with Attempt Murder with Ball as the victim along with other offenses. When it was trial time Ball blew off numerous court dates. The ASA office begged him to come to court. Finally the ASA office called Lt. Regan at Area 1 and threatened to arrest Ball for failing to comply with a court subpoena if he did not show up at the next court date. It will be interesting to see how he handles court deviations now that he's a DC.

Moy, Martinez, Stanley, Crump-Hales, et al., are useless, contemptible and incompetent political hacks unworthy of respect, even as patrol officers.

However, the Dept. broke the mold with the ouster of Senora Sherlock, our former deer in the headlights.

Hey 3/16/2008 04:53:00 AM,

you are right when you say "I don't think so" about Judy Martin.

You are right. She's not a triple merit, she's a QUADRUPLE merit! Sergeant, Lieutenant, Captin and now exempt! I do not care how nice you find her to be, one bite at the apple PLEASE!

And 3/16/2008 12:55:00 AM,

Bill O'Donnell is a gentleman, no doubt, as was his Father, and his goodbye e-mail was very classy, but he benefited plenty from clout and being connected during his career. He became an exempt because of his pedigree. He had his turn and I feel bad for him, but now it is somebody else's turn to be connected. Sadly, live by the sword, die by the sword. You cannot have it both ways, unless you are Judy Martin.

Just because your one hell of a PO making many arrests, writing parkers, field contacts etc, doesnt mean you will be a good supervisor.
Better that you stay in patrol and get paid extra compensation rather than screwing up the other PO's.
Too bad,because the CPD would never institute the above paragraph.To make someone because of activity or inactivity SUCKS, look at Merit.
What you want to do, is give them in-basket problems (every day shit that happens and see how they handle it, NOT just GO's,special O's and the like).
As far as JFed is concerned he had law enforcement training, if you go to another Police Dept, what right do you have to wear their uniform if you didn't go thru their training!
The Blue,Grey, Tan,Business Suits etc: are all part of the overall picture. Its whats in them that counts.
As an aside, I was in traing, way before many of you came on the job and helped institute the FTO program. As far as training, there was a lot of fat that could have been taken out.There is no reason why a PPO can't be put on the street after 12 weeks of training if you have a good FTO program.
Be safe guys.

Who is Lt Sarlito's(1890) clout? She's as capable as Crump-Hale

3/16/2008 07:41:00 AM

---------

I don't know if this know-it-all asshole has any clout, but she is an attorney and will tell you everything there is to know about everything, whether she's asked or not. She's a retard that has probably never locked up a real criminal, or testified in a probably cause hearning, much less an actual trial but she'll tell you every aspect on how to do your job.
But she's got a degree and is a female so who knows how high she'll get promoted. Much to the dismay of anyone that has the misfortune of working for her.
Ive never seen a LT. that loved to micromanage jobs with her condescending, know-it-all, holier-than-thou attitude like she does. Shit, I'd be happy to see her promoted just to get her dumb ass off the street.
I have to laugh at every 1st district guy that has told me that she was a good boss when she was a Sgt. Makes going into 001 that much more amusing.

And to Ms Mary S:
Hey! Lieu! We can handle a distubance better if you weren't there MFing the offenders, victims, and witnesses and making an ass out of yourself! Dont worry though, when you're screaming in your condescending tones, nose to nose with a 300lb monster of a door man who just called the police because he didnt want to have to put his hands on an unruly patron that was just put out of the club,I'll still be there to back you up 'cause thats my job. I'll even make the arrest when you get the smack in the mouth that you so richly deserve... But I'm gonna high-five dude on the way into the station.

You know, I felt exactly the same when I read that. I never met the man, but I wish I would have. He even included his personal email and cell phone number with it! One could read that as a very subtle "kiss my ass" to J-Fed, I believe! I hope he lives to have a healthy and happy retirement! Add him to the list of people who can now sit back and laugh at this circus.

3/16/2008 09:40:00 AM

I have met the man. I've also worked for him, and let me just say this one thing:
The man is an absolute stand up individual, and a working PO's boss. He knows the importance of us blue shirts on the street and he will definately be missed.
My first encounter with him, he was no more than a few days in the district, on his way into work, and saw our team hitting a few buildings, minor off-air foot chase, etc, and before I knew who he was, he was pulled up on the apron of 1340 Larrabee and seeing if he could lend a hand.
He walked the halls in 018 like everyone else and treated everyone with respect. If you needed a word, he made the time, and if there was something he could do, he actually reached out and did it.

I personally wish you nothing but the best in your retirement. I hope its twice as long as you spent working for this city and the city actually works for you for a change, if only in the form of a pension.
You will be missed.

Talk about a dumb bunch of things to utter: 1st of all Schmitz was already a commander-he was moved to a lateral position. One that he is better suited for I might add. Some folks dont like his style, but he is the working police and is not afraid to get out in the streets and work. I worked for him and all he ever asked for was loyalty. Secondly, why would you say anything about a PO who lost a parent. That is not easy for anyone to handle. But you are the typical back-stabbing cop that kicks folks when they are down.
The Jefferson Tap incident was only looked at in such a magnitude because of the media re-playing the 1st tape involving the female bartender a million times. You are the same lame individual who bitches about the FOP, yet probably have never been to a meeting in your lame career. My prayers are with ALL COPPERS fighting to keep their jobs. And I pray that J-Fed has compassion for these very same coppers.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

I hate long posts, but can't help myself here:
I've been promoted twice, off the list, once in a first class and once in the third. (no, you don't know if I'm a Lt, Sgt of Det. based on that). I have no kids, no real need for a 2nd job, so I had time to study. I've been reading the GOs and SOs etc. since I came on, and I just tend to do well on tests. That said, let me also say:
(1) The tests this dept. gives do not identify the best people to promote. When 2 or 3 points is the difference between being in the first class and not getting promoted (as it was on the last sgt test), the test is crap. I've seen myself promoted twice while far more qualified people, including friends, will not have that chance.
(2) Merit is not a problem, esp given the above--the way we do merit in CPD is. Some people who deserve it make it through. But far too many don't, and far too many people who don't deserve it do. Some people simply don't test well. They get too anxious, or obligations prevent them from being able to spend the study time, or they get mixed up on how we do things vs. how we say we do things, or they read slowly, etc. Maybe this alone means they shouldn't be exempt. If you can't pass a single bs test this dept gives, I probably don't want you in a position as an administrator making policy, determining if I should lose my job, etc. But there are several people I know--and I'm sure more I don't know--who will not soon and probably never get promoted off a list who I would be grateful to have handle my shooting (detective)or would be proud and happy to work for in the field (sgt).

Just some thoughts.

look at it all from another perspective: 1) J-Fed comes in, he really doesn't know anyone (with maybe some minor exceptions) in the CPD exempt; he appoints his top deputies (with a nudge from City Hall?), then allows them the freedom to recommend other command appointments, using as an aside the "resume" scam: the result...1) many who are connected (politically, socially, financially) get an appointment; 2) others who are connected, or needed, by virtue of gender or race, also are appointed; 3) the resume thing is wonderful window dressing, but has no relationship to a person's time on the street, their competence or intelligence (or lack of), or their relative ability to construct a coherent English sentence and communicate at a basic level; and so, the bottom line...the Department is as politically, organizationally, and morally corrupt, and intellectually bankrupt, as it has always been; it's just that the overwhelming significantly motivational forces now come from City Hall, instead of 35th Street....

Many a CPD has ended their life over the futility of this corrupt job, ie; I'm paid to enforce the law by the most corrupt entities in Illinois and possibly the country., the unfair testing process. ie; people announcing weeks before lists come out that they are on it, and even what district they are going to. I don't bother hoping that one day any of this will be legit. I am not a moron. I know how deeply entrenched the corruption in the city runs. I just count the days until I can flee to a municipality slightly less corrupt and certainly with less taxes.

I was one of the folks who held out hope that there would be a fresh start here at CPD with J-Fed, but Fridays promotions have sealed the deal, Chicago Police Dept is officially HOPELESS!
As a straight, white, male, with no phone call, I'll be a beat car patrolman for life. I'm too old 40something, to change jobs, BUT, if you are 35 or younger GET THE HELL OUT NOW!!! You will never have a fair shake in this shit hole.

Wait a minute.

I know all of the Martinez silliness first hand.

But, you went to a beat meeting, off-duty, paid at time and one-half (with a minimum of 3 hours pay), representing the department in front of citizens, and you can't put a uniform on?

I can't speak for anyone else but Powers but was a good man. He helped me when I needed it most. I also thought the Jefferson Tap thing was a bar fight. Everyone knows a law suit against the city is a winning lottery ticket. If I didn't work for CPD I'd have five or six myself.


Well sonny boy Powers fucked over numerous officers(without juice) I told a commander I was not going to do something that was Illegal and in turn he put your Boy Powers on me. He powers told me "to bad so sad" as he needed to please the commander???? Powers was nothing more then a coward pussy and the guys from Jefferson tap are Connected if they were only po's with no juice they would already be gone. CLOUT RULES!

I knew Bill Powers.Did you? Did you ever work for him. Anyone and I mean anyone who ever knew him or worked for him will tell you he was a good boss and a great guy and NEVER fucked over any copper. Not even know nothing loud mouths like yourself.


Bill Powers was in charge of the personal concerns program and FUCK over numerous officers who had no connections. Sorry to disappoint you, yet thats the truth. His son should be on the medical as he was crying and out of control. I found it troublesomeness that his gun had to be taken away from him. What would happen to you OFFICER. Lets be fair ask yourself that question?

I'm retired now and living the good life but here's a little story about "Lucy Juicy Moy" you might enjoy. I remember when she was working Tac in 018 many years ago. There was the usual problem with the Michigan Ave. shoplifters that were usually handled by the Michigan Ave. footmen. Well she and her partner decided to pad their arrest activity by grabbing those shoplifting arrests. It went on for quite a while until the Tac Lt., a prince of a guy by the name of Jim Annotnocchi (sic?) arrived in 018, saw what was going on and told her that if she wanted to continue to arrest shoplifters that he would find her a beat car that she would like because arresting shoplifters was not the job of a Tactical Officer but that of a uniformed officer instead. She did her usual giggling and sucking up routine but stopped arresting shoplifters. Of course her stats plummeted.
I don't think I've ever met a more incompetent buffoon posing as a police officer in my life. She was and is an embarrassment to any Police Officer with an ounce of common sense or self respect. To think that they made her a Commander is unbelieveable and makes me glad I pulled the pin.

J-Fed, If there was ever an honest test with honest promotions, you might not have cops that felt the need to drink away their sadness. You wouldn't have so many suicides either. Many a CPD has ended their life over the futility of this corrupt job, ie; I'm paid to enforce the law by the most corrupt entities in Illinois and possibly the country., the unfair testing process. ie; people announcing weeks before lists come out that they are on it, and even what district they are going to. I don't bother hoping that one day any of this will be legit. I am not a moron. I know how deeply entrenched the corruption in the city runs. I just count the days until I can flee to a municipality slightly less corrupt and certainly with less taxes.

WoW!!!!Some one else thinks like me. I'm humbled. This department wont change unless every Sgt. in this dept gets transferred. This is the backbone of clout. When any CMMDr or Exempt make a spot who does he/she rely on? The Lt's and Sgt's that come allong for the ride. J-fed....wake up and change this pattern of clout!!!

Lucy Moy is a fucking joke. A DO-NOTHING cop in 018, a bigger DO-NOTHING MERITORIOUS DETECTIVE in Area 4, and an even BIGGER DO-NOTHING MERITORIOUS SERGEANT assigned to Labor/Management and Affairs and then a total DO-NOTHING MERITORIOUS LIEUTENANT assigned to Headquarters... Yeah right, J-Fed, HARD WORK will get you promoted. Get the fuck out of here and go back to the FBI, you're nothing but Daley's Errand Boy and all of us know it. GO SELL CRAZY SOME PLACE ELSE, WE'RE ALL STOCKED UP HERE.

Martinez might be a cartoonish figure, but your unwillingness to dress appropriately shows that you have a total lack of respect for the citizens on your beat, your supervisors, your colleagues and yourself. Please grow up.

If you want even a modicum of happiness....Know this, This corrupt police dept, fake supt, gangster mayor are never going to change. You have to! We make good money,more than the ASA's or PDs, be proud of your achievements. If you have time, take advantage of school because there are great jobs waiting for you when you retire if you want them, but they all want a masters degree and Lewis U. will do nicely. Air Marshalls, Police Chiefs, Sheriffs, Campus Security Chiefs,etc. Chicago is a filled with a lot of great people, just overlook the punks that we have to work under and think of all the wonderful people we get to work WITH. Never ask an exempt if you want the correct answer. Ask one of those Lts. that never seems to go anywhere. He/she is probably the one who should be the Supt. Lets just treat the police we respect, respectfully. If you dont expect anything, you won't be disappointed. I only expect anything anymore from SCC!

I never worked for Lt Powers. I didn't have clout and in fact the first time I ever met him was when I went down to talk to him. That was when he helped me. I was only talking from personal experience. I found him to be a good, kind, man. The truth is, if I had been in that bar and heard those jerks make a crack about Powers I believe I would have done the same thing. Exactly.

He was a political hack hatchet man for exempts w/ personal vendettas real or imagined against P.O.s
who were placed into a program fraught w/inconsistencies.

The Truth? That's based on interpretation. More like Bullies w/beer muscles looking for an excuse.Reprehensible @ best.

to: 03/18, 04:03 am...very good points made..I think that I actually met a few of the Lts and Capts who fit your description, men and women who recognized the fraud and corruption of the organization (not only in the CPD, but from City Hall), but had the character to refuse to compromise their integrity and "play the game"...I guess that they didn't get promoted, but they lived their lives with their integrity intact, a more profound statement of their professional lives than the title that appears in front of their names...

You morons sticking up for Powers, got it all wrong. You were all part of his experiment as he was working towards his Psych. degree. I am sorry he died of cancer (correct me if I am wrong), but he helped himself and exempts before he really helped any no-clout P.O.

To 3:28 pm - even better said, my friend. So true. It always irked me to hear someone describe a bullshit move that a boss made as he had no choice or his hands were tied or what else was he supposed to do? How about having the courage to make that choice of standing up to your moronic supervisor and at least try to fight for what is right?

You don't have to tell me your stories about Powers. Like I said, I didn't work for him and he didn't know me either. I went to him for help and as a cop helping another cop he was a kind and extremely helpful person. If any police officer had ever come to me like that I don't think I would've been able to have been as helpful. It was an observation, not a contest to see who say something meaner. We all remember people who have picked us up when we were down. On this job, too many would like to keep you there.

Lucy Moy made "meritorious" detective with a total award history of 11 Honorable Mentions, while other officers put in for meritorious detective had numerous DC's, other awards, hundreds of honorable mentions and quality arrests. I have a copy of her "merit" resume when she was made and I will dig it out a be glad to send to you SCC for all to see. She's was and is a fucking joke. Another Poster Child for why this department and its leadership is so fucked up.
