Oh Really?

  • After Thursday's ceremony, Weis told reporters he was going to be placing more responsibility on his top people to help shape the future strategy of the department. He said he took no cues from Mayor Richard Daley and did not confer with him on his decision.
Let's just put that rumor to bed right now.

Name the double and triple merit promotions that somehow have landed spots that actually run the Department. Those are the people who have no concept of how to be the police, yet run the second largest department in the country.

Feds lie far more often than they tell the truth, and even when they tell the truth, they usually do so to conceal their lies.

Yeah, really.

Burbcops has a link to "open book" the site that list's campaign donors and who they gave $$ to. When you enter some of the names of the newly promoted, it shows exactly who their clout is. I guess the smart ones probably donated in relatives names. But you know cops, that ego just gets in the way.....

People in white shirts have told me in blue this, "there are people who run this dept, who have no clue what you do, they've never pulled someone out of a domestic, nor have pulled a gun on someone on a traffic stop." To me, people at the top have never been the police are now telling the police how to be, that is bullshit.

So they say that politics had nothing to do with the latest changes. Lets see: commanders of 001 and 018 both work for Keating. Neither gets moved and Keating is close to the Mayor. Co-ink-a-dink? I dont think so!!!
Geno Roy - gets caught doinking his nasty, two different baby daddy secretary at his summer home in Michigan by a neighbor who calls Roy's wife and dimes him out. His wife (and clout) has him served divorce papers in the lobby of 009 while everyone laughs at him. Shootings in 009 are at an all time high while all he is thinking about is getting trim from his office staff. Integrity...ethics....NOT!!! but who saved him from the chopping block? Thats right the 11th Ward (Daleys ward).
J-fraud, if you want to make it appear legit DUMP ROY!!!!

How can Weis stand there and preach about having a public and private life unsullied and to lead by example when he leave a commander in place that is a drunk and has lost all of the respect of his troops thanks to his getting caught with his "sex-retery"

J-fed? He should be called Judas Fed. He definitely sold his soul for 30 pieces of silver. ($310,000)

The new promotions are a joke. This guy has no clue that the majority of people he just promoted are all dirty political hacks who should'nt even be carrying a star or gun.

Let's start with M. Shields. How many exempts do you know take a 30 day sexual harassment beef, that the city pays out on and still get promoted?

Shields in turn saves his racist buddy Doty from the gallows by getting him a lateral to 021. If Doty is smart he won't change a thing implemented by the genius H. Lodding. I think he was told to go there and be invisible and ride Howard's coat-tails....because we all know 006 is screwed up beyond repair.

Next is L. Martinez. This guy came to work everyday late. During the last snowstorm he wanted to write up several white...thats right.. white p.o's for being late. What a jerk-off. Everyday in the summer he would leave work around 12:00pm, without dropping a slip and go sit on his boat with his little Captain's hat on. Talk about a douche-bag...oh did I forget to mention he's related to Governor Blago by marriage?

Lillie Crump-Hale...nuff said!

The list goes on and on.

Hey Jody, there are some of us here who come to work 15 minutes early each day with our boots shined and in the proper uniform! Most of us are honest law abiding citizens who never took a dime, but yet have to live in the most corrupt big city in the U.S. The city where you shook hands with the devil..we have to work four jobs so we can pay the taxes on our crummy little homes and support the worst public school system in the U.S.

It's a fact. I have to send my kid's to private schools and pay their outrageous prices because CPS SUCKS. The drop-out rate is over %50.

I am glad I have served my Country, State, and City honorably....just to be told I don't have the freedom to live where i want live....residency has been declared unconstitutional by many jurisdictions...(wake up peolple NYC and L.A.don't have it) but this one is so corrupt it will never happen...

Judas Fed I hope you sleep well at night. The difference between you and me, a Honest Chicago Cop, is we never sold out. We get up every morning and take what you quislings dish out...just for our families sake.

All you idiot's who think this guy is the second coming of Christ...wake the fuck up...the more things change the more things stay the same...

I am not one to rip people on this site. That being said I have to agree that a few of the new boses and reassigned boses are double or triple merit. L. Moy comes to mind right away. How much time has she spent in a dist???? Does she know probable cause if she saw it???? Has she filled or helped fill out an arrest report in the last 10 years???

I hate to jump on the bandwagon but J-Fraud seems to be the correct moniker. It has been said many times on this site "Meet the new Boss, Same as the old Boss". The more things change the more they stay the same.

Word is J-Fed held a talent show in which three current bosses impressed him with their recreation of the 70's hit show "What's Happening?". Rog was played by Mike Shields, Re-run by Tina Skahill and the star was Dee recreated by none other than John Doty. Dee's character when hearing about police corruption would say "Ooo, I'm telling J-Fed".

Who stole my line ?!
I wrote at least 3 weeks ago that the true blue FBI crime fighter J-Fed sold his soul to the "little guy on the 5th floor" for $310,000 year for 3 years a/k/a 30 pieces of silver.
Boys & girls the head of the Chicago FBI (Grant) will be joining the CPD.
You can take it to the bank.
Grant & J-Fed are friends.
J-Fed had the chance to show some balls when the "little guy
on the 5th floor" told J-Fed to get rid of HG.
J-Fed should have stood up to Daley and told him "if HG goes so does J-Fed."
The "little guy on the fifth floor" appointed former Asst. US Attorney Hoffman as head of the IG's office to keep the G off of Daley's back. Daley tried to use Hoffman like a cheap 2 dollar whore, but guess what ? Hoffman is not allowing it and is taking on Daley.

They made a black female who just made Lt. the actor in 002 over 2 highly qualified white Captains. WTF?

Jody says, " I don't care if they make their friends so long as they are good. Huh? I thought he wa looking at resumes and was taking the best of the best.

Green, still a boss, Shields still a boss, Doty still a boss, Brown still a boss.

Some picks were real good, Mike Kemuth in 022 should be great. Heard good things about the guy in 006. Graber, even though double merit is at least a guy from patrol. You almost wonder if these good promotions were an accident though.

The Sup. should be ashamed of himself. I get more sick evrytime I see him wear the uniform he didn't earn.

Sorry off topic

Last night, I watched a show on the History Channel called Gangland. The episode was entitled, "Maniacal." It showed how the MLD's started in Humboldt Park and how the internal conflict began in the early 90's. It even shows the new commander of 016(Riccio) doing the "perp walk" for the cameras when that Lady D killed a cobra in the washroom of the park.

It is playing again and may be intresting to watch.

Well time will tell how these changes shape the NEW CPD. I would imagine that being promoted by Weis meens that you will be expected to crack the whip and shape things up his way. I only hope and pray that the new regime understands what they are up against out there. I have 17 years on the job and have been through many changes before. It all boils down to the same old thing. Go out there and be productive with your movers, parkers, etc blah blah blah. Also I never bought into all these new crazy uniforms and remain in the original version. Now I see that we all may be going back to that same version. I don't think the new boss cares for all the baseball caps and cargo pants. I just purchased some new 80/20's and a new summer vest cover in anticipation that nothing will change.

Now maybe all the watch commanders will settle down and get off our ass with all these crazy missions. Now that all the big changes are done for, we may see some minor adjustments being made within each district. Hopefully they may also start to rebuild morale which would result in better relations with the community. A happy cop = a productive cop. That should be the message given to the troops.

Holy FULL OF SHIT Batman!!!

Just be honest nobody looks at just resumes and conducts interviews. These people got recommended by someone. The right question that reporters should ask is who did J-Fed talk to if not Daley? Maybe Daley's fan club members played the part this time. It smells like some Hillard people. Carothers and some political relatives of Obama. Blago too. Some may have been selected by one of the new D/S's.

The top of the layer cake is just to pacify the public. The big P in politics. The little P is what we get to pacify us. As they get closer to us they will select more respected supervisors in order to motivate us to work harder and to follow along so we make them look good. In return we might fair better with working watch commanders. Nothing more...

Daley and J-Fed have a lot riding on these changes. If crime explodes this summer. Look out. Public and media criticism of Daley and the ex-feds will not only embarrass but, may end their reign faster than an indictment.

Liar, liar, pants on fire! You did not consult with the Mayor Jody? Really? You are a rotten liar. Let's examine the John Ball promotion to Cmdr of the 005th District. He was a merit Detective, merit Sgt, merit Lt before you arrived in Chicago. Now you promote him to commander after being here for a month. On what criteria did you base this particular promotion? Some reverend, politician, or political contributor has the mayor's ear regarding John Ball. That's blatantly obvious. How about George Rosenbrock? Crime rates went down in his district for the two years he was a District Commander, yet you demoted him. Why? And Lucy Moy. You promoted her to District Commander. Anyone who knows her knows she is totally incompetent as a police officer. True story. When she was a dick in Area 4 she was the CAPS Detective. She actually called Area 4 from a beat meeting and said they needed to send a detective out to the meeting because the people where asking a lot of questions about recent shootings/robberies. John Farrell told her to look at her star beacuse it said Detective. He told her to handle it, he wasn't sending anyone else to the meeting she was all ready attending.

WHAT? Do you REALLY think all the white bosses on this job EARNED their rank/spots? Wake the fuck up!! You guys invented the double standard! And for the record, however John Graeber got through the ranks of Sgt., Lt., Capt. and up to Cmdr., he is a very decent guy. Lots of white bosses could learn from him on how to be fair to EVERYBODY. One of the best moves I've seen in the promotions so far, and I don't think anyone who has ever worked with or for John would say differently. Quit whining here because it wasn't you.
There's still time for you to gain the qualities that have gotten Graeber to where he is today. We need more decent men & women in the upper ranks like Graeber, John Ball, and Kathy Boehmer.

Having sex with your secretary (allegedy) doesn't make one a bad boss. It may not make you a smart boss, but it doesn't make you a bad one. As far as Roy allegedly receiving divorce papers in the station, where did you think his Mrs. was going to have him served at? Where would you find your mate
the easiest if he or she were a District Commander?

am glad I have served my Country, State, and City honorably....just to be told I don't have the freedom to live where i want live....residency has been declared unconstitutional by many jurisdictions...(wake up peolple NYC and L.A.don't have it) but this one is so corrupt it will never happen...

3/15 2:00 AM

I agree with almost everything in your post, good points. However, realize that the constant posts on this blog about "protecting the homeland", "bidding to 016 or 008 or 022 to take care of our own"
only reinforce the city's case that residency works. If we admit that we will better police the places we live it makes the residency argument completely logical. I'm not suggesting we don't take care of our own, but simply that we use our heads and stop advertising it and making the city's case for them. By the way, there is no constitutional argument about residency as a condition of employ, only to after the fact imposition of residency requirements to those whom already have established residency elsewhere and a property interest in their employment.

He may not have taken any suggestions from the Mayor, but it's the same old game he took suggestions from and it's a quote from the Trib "Weis, who changed much of his top command staff last month, said after Friday's ceremony that he relied on them to help choose the new district commanders, focusing on their ability to lead." The blind leading the blind.

Give people a break who studied hard for the test and have the chance to be promoted from the test. It is the only fair thing to do. We've seen your new Cmdr. promotions and see many who are now promoted to Cmdr who had "merited" their way up the ladder. We all know that Merit is synonymous to clout.

Hey, congrats on becoming a member of the CPD.
Due to the generality of your request for advice I assumed that you meant advice about the job and what to do as a PPO (I hope your case reports aren't that sketchy).
First, don't let the current state of low morale influence you. You haven't been around long enough to have an opinion anyway.
I'm sure you think you learned a lot in the academy. Thats great, I hope you learned it well you'll need it. If you didn't, reread your notes we already have enough college educated dummies out here.
My next and best piece of advice to you is to keep your mouth shut and your eyes and ears open. Learn from those officers who have been around longer than you. The academy taught you the bare basics. Your real education begins when you hit the street.
You will eventually be allowed to have an opinion. Just keep your opinion to yourself until you wear out a duty belt and remember that you can learn just as much from a dog-ass (what not to do) as you can from the working police. Speaking of learning, you will not "learn" this job by the time you drop that extra P in PPO. So don't expect to become supercop the day your status is up. If you are lucky you will just be getting the hang of it when you hit the 5 year mark. Don't worry you'll still have fun if you keep the right attitude.
I could go on but I'm sure the real veterans will have more to say.
Have fun and stay safe,
7 years and still learning.

Be smart.

3/15/2008 11:58:00 AM"


You, sir, are a genius.

Smarter always beats tougher.

The fact that these cocksuckers ruining our economy, here in this bent city government, this crooked county government, this twisted state government and this corrupted federal government, have been smarter than the average citizen/voter is how they've managed to gain and keep the power to exploit and manipulate us all for so long.

We, the People, must be as smart or smarter than the crooks who live to exploit us.

The first thing an intelligent person does is resolve themselves to never, ever lie to themselves, about anything.

'To thine own self be true' means don't bullshit yourself.

'To thine own self be true' does not mean to think only of your own self interest and to hell with the rest of the world.

The minority of individuals who have so successfully thought only of their own self interests, manipulating and exploiting every other person they can, are the root cause of everyone's hardships, including those who choose not to work and choose to live off of the dimes of those who do, said dimes being a relatively small portion of the dollars taken from those who work by taxations.

Life is complicated enough without lying to oneself.

Life is complicated enough without being lied to by the very people we elect and trust not to lie to us, not to steal from us and not to screw up every element of our society and economy we depend upon.

We, as a people, need honest individuals to elect as our authentic representatives in our governments, honest individuals who will not lie to themselves and will not lie to us.

The idea occasionally floated here, of honest law enforcement officers forming a 'Blue' party comes to mind, if only on a local level, ie., this city and county.

Rather than some wallowing in apathy and cynicism, with or without the use of the bottle, why not 'get smart' and unite in the common bonds of dedication to your ideals, and take a well aimed shot at every city and county elected office?

The Web can be your vehicle of communication; utilize it wisely and you won't need to bother with paying for 'mainstream' press coverage, they will come to you.

SCC has proven this to be true.

Let's get busy.

Who do we hold accountable? The criminals? The System? The politicians? Welcome. You have just entered the buffer zone. Watch your back!!!

Daley is pushing his gun control agenda by using city family members of shooting victims to create a political platform for yet more gun control. With all the current gun control laws on the books now has anything changed? Yes, law abiding citizens can’t defend themselves with a gun. The criminals well they don’t give a fuck about the law in the first place. If you removed every gun from our society would people stop killing each other? How did people kill before guns were invented? The lunatics in prison have discovered many methods to kill each other without guns. Do you think for a moment these tactics couldn’t be used anywhere else? More people are killed in auto accidents then from gun violence. Why don’t we stop making cars? People are killed with knives and baseball bats as well. Do we stop eating meat and stop watching baseball games too?

Maybe Blair could have been saved if the bus driver had a gun? Or a passenger on the bus? Maybe we should provide security on CTA buses? The cameras solved the crime but didn’t stop it from happening in the first place. Maybe mom and dad should buy bullet proof vests for their children to wear at school? Why the senseless killings take place stupidity, jealously, anger and hatred. You cannot control these things with laws. You can defend yourself with a pistol.

We all want almost the same thing safety and freedom. But, at what cost? My gun saved my life from a criminal who didn’t think twice about pulling the trigger at a policeman. I live today because of a gun and the right to defend myself. I risked my life to stop the mother fucker who would have killed anyone in his way. I ask all of you NOW to stop with the silly bull shit about gun control. We have the right to bear arms for a reason. To prevent our government from suppressing our freedoms. To safe guard our lives and property. And to defend our country. Now is the time to arm our citizens and NOT take away their right to defend ourselves.

I never worked with or for Graber. So I won't comment about his qualifications, but his car was NOT firebombed in Beverly because of his "attack on gangs and drugs" as a poster said. A drunked next door neighbor he had problems with for years over petty shit was the culprit. A half burned empty 12 pack carton of Budweiser was found at the scene with a receipt from Walgreens still inside. They matched the time on the receipt to the guy by watching the security video from the store. The neighbor is buying a 12 pack of Budweiser. The guy was arrested and charged with the arson. The offender was a 44 year old white guy with no previuos arrests.

...we already have enough college educated dummies out here.
My next and best piece of advice to you is to keep your mouth shut and your eyes and ears open. Learn from those officers who have been around longer than you...

You guys who never went to college love to play it down. Why? Because you didn't go? So what? Get over yourself.

Yeah, I'm a college graduate. And I've done 2 tours - 1 in Iraq, 1 in Afghanistan. I've served with college grads and with guys who barely finished high school. My best friend died in a Stryker in May 2006. Was he a college graduate? Who the fuck cares? He's still dead!

Now I'm CPD and I work with a few good cops. But on my shift most are lazy slugs who can barely stay awake and hate the job and the city and the citizens and everything else. All of these losers have been around longer than me and now they say, hey, let's show up Daley and JFed and do even less activity! I don't know how they could do any less! What am I learning from these "veterans?" You tell me.

I'm proud of being in the Army Reserves and I'm proud of being CPD. The Army paid for my college and you know what? I'm damn proud of that degree on my wall and I hope both my sons get one someday.

To The PPO looking for advice, use your common sense out on the street and you will make it far. Hopefully you will get a good FTO with more than five years hopefully close to 10 years or more. Be careful do your job and keep you eyes and ears open. Some things they taught you in the academy will help but the real teaching begins out here on the street. Sometimes you may know something but never tell your FTO “oh I already know that they taught me that in the academy" just listen and take the advice. Pay attention to how some of your assist cars handle things right or wrong you learn from that. If you have questions ask that is what that FTO is there for. Watch out for your partner and fellow officers so we all go home safe. We have to start looking out for one another again; all we have is each other out here on the streets.

Get on the ballot, for any elected city or county office, and I'll vote for you, just because of the quoted comments above.

The incident with Graeber had nothing, nothing to do with gangs. A middle aged white guy screwed with his city car while Graeber was in NAGIS. If you think otherwise, drink some more kool aid. The guy was pinched but beat it in court. Any other story is all BS.
Nice guy but a complete politico.

This is very well spoken and so very true. SCC, you would do well to give this posting it's own heading so that maybe it might even inspire a "revolution" among the rank and file to unite as one voice.
Revolution can mean the way we think and the way we act on any number of issues that concern ourselves and our families. Let's all wake up and open our eyes. Revolution is what brought about this great country of ours from under British tyranny.
Look at our elected leaders in the city, county and state government. Uncontrolled taxation with little or no recourse. Little or no accountability from the people we have given our trust to. Those in charge of this city are using the citizen's fear and hatred of us to take attention away from the real criminals; themselves.
The mayor of this city can ask of the media for privacy concerning his son Patrick, and the media rolls over and plays dead. How many of us cannot even remotely hope to be given the same consideration if accused of misconduct or wrongdoing?
I always thought that true leaders stand at the forefront and lead by example. This man can only lead us to ruin.

Kathy Boehmer was not a merit sgt or lt. She made sgt before there were merit promotions. She then didn't do well on the next test. That test had merit promotions. If she was merit, she would have made it then. She was in the first class of her test. She is a very smart lady and a class act. We feel very lucky in 20 to have worked for her.

Hey T.P. from 021, how does it feel that you helped with making Lodding and Martinez shine like stars for that level III meeting with all that computer work you did for them, and all you got was what? NOTHING. Lodding and Martinez bragged about how Jody liked what was presented and poof! He promoted them. What did you get? Did they even thank you? You remain on a beat car. LOL! Didnt you learn anything working at Headquarters for the likes of bosses such as these. Dumb Ass!

Holy College Boy Batman!!!

To the young reservist who served honorably across the sea in the sand pit of hell. I don’t judge a man or women by their education. I judge them by their actions toward me, their families and co-workers. And. Yes! Sir you deserve respect for your service to your country but, I disagree with you opinion and assessment of the Chicago Police Department. Those lazy slugs and complainers. Those working and non-working. Those inside and outside. Those north, west and south siders. I love you all. Is it true we are enemies? I don’t believe it. Maybe you do?

I know this and maybe you should to. We are not always aware of the power and influence that we have with the public. We do not use this power to effectively address the political corruption that is robbing us all. If you don’t see or can’t see what is happen your are blind and I want you to see. Think outside of your self and own interests your own judgements. Embrace all your fellow officers as we have never done before. It is there advantage to divide us. We must stand strong and put are differences aside and work for our common goals. Fair treatment and a contract. We must move forward and expand into politics. Run for Alderman run for mayor, run for elected office. Don’t stop. Never stop.

Sorry to the copper in 21. Many of us have been used in the same fashion - repeatedly. Problem is we do it because its the right thing to do, and they do it because they want to make themselves look good. Another fine trait of the exempt - repeatedly.

Is this the site where white officers whine about how superior they are and how they should be in charge because they are superior and white. Is this the site where every black or Hispanic bosses aren't shit and don't deserve anything. The same site that supports SOS's famous criminals. I wonder if Mette was black would he get all this support from this site. Post this or don't. I already know who i work with. A bunch of ignorant fools with badges.

It seems your whining too and doing the card again. Don't forget about Hutchinson and Carriger both SOS also and they were supported by White Officers as was the F/1 out in 6 that killed that girl in the car after the chase, even though black coppers were screaming racism, until they found out it was a F/1 Officer that did the shooting and it was all Black Officers involved in that incident. Just as they would have if that were a White copper at the 95th Street and Dan Ryan incident, the blacks would not be saying it was an accident.
