Nice Coverage

  • A Lincoln Park High School girls' swim coach and Chicago firefighter was arrested in Elmhurst on attempted sexual abuse charges after he allegedly tried to solicit a child on the Internet, police said Saturday.

    Dennis P. Goggin, 42, of the 3600 block of South Union Avenue in Chicago was arrested Thursday by police in the west suburb, according to Elmhurst police Sgt. Steve Weatherford.

Then this one also hidden in the darker recesses of the paper:
  • Griselda Bueno died alone, of a heart attack in her Berwyn home, after spending years helping everyone from children to the elderly in the Hispanic community make their way through the health care system.

    And when the 59-year-old woman's remains went to the Cook County medical examiner's office, an autopsy technician stole a three-carat diamond engagement ring that Bueno never took off, and diamond earrings, authorities allege.

And still, the lead story in Sunday's paper is a non-existent issue that has been hashed and re-hashed to death. Can you imagine if a copper was caught stealing? Oh wait, they were and it was front page for days on end. Same thing with the molesting sergeant and he's going to prison for almost two decades.

The Slum Times is continuing its slide into irrelevance at an alarming speed.

TRU is DOWNSIZING?

Didn't think we could hire any shorter officers that were already in TRU!

Shit, we are going to have to hire even shorter midgets!

I guess the only involvement of police in these two terribly offensive crimes was that they solved them and caught the offenders. Police also neglected to call the media as their news stories weren't splashed all over page one. Maybe they tried but the reverands had all the lines tied up.

A high ranking boss told me that the new supt wants to make a rule that states when a department sworn member is visiting a bar, tavern or lounge, he/she must identify themselves as a police officer prior to ordering their first alcoholic beverage. Is this guy smoking wacky tobacco? What's next, wearing a Scarlet A on your chest while out of the house? Ankle GPS bracelets?

RE: I.D. yourself in a bar? There was an excellent police sgt dining off duty in a n.s. bar/restaurant many years ago, with his wife. When the Stickup men came in and announced, a waitress yelled to the gunmen "Don't shoot!" Then she turned to the Sgt, who was half way into his draw, and said "That goes for you too, officer." The Sgt was immediately shot by one of the thugs. Yeah, I'll I.D. myself: " I am a piano player in a house of ill repute" as far as the public is concerned, off duty!

A quick aside back to this weekends Sun-Times front page:

I thought that if any position is testable, you have to promote or hire based on the qualified applicant actually scoring better that the others that also took the same test. To promote or to hire in any other fashion, especially based on skin color, sex, or heritage would be racist, no?

OK, he was obviously smoking some really good weed. Haven't you every heard of The Bill of Rights? Besides, it's nobody's businees WTF I do for a living, where I go or what I do on my own time.

For J-Fed to even suggest something like that would be opening up a can of worms. Can you say "Class action lawsuit"?

Stop spreading rumors and bullshit.

Not only should the exempts ID themselves as such but they should have to pick of the tab for current and retired POs in the bar and give the POs fifty bucks each when the exempts leave the bar.

Maybe that’s the reason the morgue refused to cooperate with Berwyn who actually made the arrest or was it the extensive background check done by the county that consisted of double digit arrests. The last time I heard the morgue was on county property.

Identifying self? Might just as well wear the uniform! Or will we be found "asking for discounts" by identifying ourselves? Free security? Why don't we just wear GPS instead of squad cars? Have a chip implanted upon entering academy? The rest grandfathered in by IAD? Yeah, right!

Prior to being employed as a fireman, Goggin was employed by SDI Security Inc. which is owned by ex-Ald. Patrick Huels. Goggin resides in the 11th Ward, I wonder how he got on CFD.

What's with the fax that came out stating that if it is alleged that an officer is under the influence while either on or off duty (doesn't have to be in car), a shitload of notifications must be made .... etc

Does anybody have any more info on that?

Cool your jets about the memo that JJ wrote on details. They are doing an inventory of manpower trying to find all the unaccounted bodies that pc and friends hid throughout the years. The focus is on uncovering those bullshit inside jobs that we all know about.

3/22/2008 11:50:00 PM

Look at the airports: what a waste of manpower. POs with 4 years on, SGTs with 3 years on. The sick, lame, the fat and the rats, are all holed up doing nothin' but fattening their wallets on BS overtime.

Of course not, they are probably more the fault of the race-baiting, apologist, white liberals that believe blacks somehow aren't advanced enough to be responsible for the behavior of their community, and the spread of the mysogynistic, self-hating and destructive "hip hop" culture to make a few bucks.

Prentice Marshall may have forced CPD to open up its hiring practices to women and more minorities, that isnt to say that women and minorities cant be more qualified by their counterparts. I'm was referring to the hiring based solely on filling quota spots that has already been widely aceepted as unconstitutional.
Gotta love a judge that gives constitutional rights to illegal immigrants too... I thought you had to be a citizen of this country to be protected by Our constitution. That would just follow logic, no?
Either way, thats a funeral I wouldn't have attended.

As a fireman here I am pissed and embarrassed by this scum bag. He has been a fireman @ 2 years and deserves to be put in the cell with the biggest bubba they can find. Hopefully he will get the treatment (read beatings) that he deserves. As for some comments about firemen in the comments. I like the fact that the police and fire departments get along with each other here. I don't want to get like some other cities where they hate each other. If we let that happen Daley will love it. Just another way to play us against each other.

For what it's worth: few years ago a couple of det's go to a fundraiser in Berwyn, Ill. Gangbangers show up, and escorted out....they wait for ANYBODY leaving fundraiser...turns out the two chicago cops leave early and are ambushed by the two thugs firing handguns...assholes are captured by CPD with no-kills...what happens??? Berwyn top cop orders CPD cops to blow breath-alizer...Boss Cline comes down and ORDERS THEM NOT TO DO IT.....Lessons U can use: if U must use UR weapon (deadly force ) make sure they R dead...have a criminal lawyer that will come out at 3 a.m. (forget fop ), and have $15,000 in the bank for lawyer's FIRST deposit.....
