Overheard at the Social Club

We think we heard this also, because they were talking about it where we were at. It needed it's own post though:
  • Cline's claim to fame was his ability to reduce the number of homicides. He sold Hillard that he was capable of performing miracles.

    What really was going on was Cline, then Malloy and finally Maher were utilizing the two homicide review officers who work outside the office of the Chief of Detectives to reclassify homicides back to death investigations.

    It made the CPD look like it was doing a tremendous job but is was all Bull Shit.

    Pam Zekman had it right but "Fat Phil" lied to her and the citizens of Chicago to benefit himself and his gang.

    Just another example of how devious he was and it will take years for CPD to recover.
We heard, third hand, that J-Fed is having the homicide numbers for the past three years reviewed for "classification errors" that may have hidden certain deaths from being counted.

Long time readers will recall this theory making a regular appearance in the comment sections and it being the subject of at least one Pam Zekman report that made a certain Deputy Chief look a bit uncomfortable during an interview.

We have a disturbing feeling the hits haven't stopped coming yet.

Who knows if Cline or others "played" with the numbers or not.

But J-Fed knows that he can't be the police supt getting $300,000.00+ a year and have murders increase at that pay.

So its simple math, enlarge the previously reported numbers so you don't have to take a hit on rising homicide numbers.

Dont jump to conclusions. Kline is the one who initiated the OCD policy that said you can only be assigned to a task force for 3 years and must be rotated out. Lil Ricky is the only sgt who over stayed his 3 years by many.

Kline also had detectives assigned to hidta under Ricky to work dope related homicides. Not necessary. Woulnd't be shocked to see them all going back soon.

UUMMM, actually it was MM who despised SP and went out of her way to berate him and try to make him look like a fool. I laughed my A$$ off when he was announced as her new boss. As for her hubby he was in his spot because of who he was married to. SP has the right to pick people he can trust. Don't feel sorry for hubby, he always has her to look at when he goes home.

If Weis and Peterson have any sense they will indicate that the audit Grau ordered has been completed and the number of homicides have been corrected.

They should not point the finger at anyone.

If the media starts to ask questions then they should have Chasen respond to them.

It is much easier to reveal the bad news at the start of one's time in office than later on when one might have to assume some of the blame.

I've been in the D division for 15 years. Never as a supervisor. The Mayor and Superintendent want the murder rate to go down. Nobody else cares. What do we care if the city has over 800, 900 murders. Me and other dicks are not going to "hide" murders to make Richie look good. There may be 1-4 deaths citywide each year where the department and the M.E. can not say for absolute certainty was a Suicide vs. Homicide. Maybe 1-4. The murder totals did not drop from the 900s in the late 1990s to the 400s in the mid 2000s because of any numbers games. It also had nothing to do with Cline and his DOC strategy etc, etc. It's because the public housing has been torn down, or the residents where moved out. Crime is skyrocketing in the southern suburbs and down in Chicago. Why? Many of the criminals have been moved out that way. Did we become a much better police department and the south suburban departments suddenly become less effective? Hell no. It's the residents stupid!

Ricky should of been chased because he was "Fat Phil's" close friend not because of his wife.

The next one to go should be "Carla the Hog" as she has been doing nothing for years except acting as Cline's #1 cheerleader.

Her big investigation is all nonsense.

Another item that should be responded too is the falsehood that Cline did not go after family members of those he disliked. He did mess with a relative of someone who stood in his way and that individual threatened to go to the Mayor and Cline backed down.

Hey officer, there is no cover-up just because you wrote a Hospitalization "Death Investigation" for a possible homicide.

The Medical Examiner makes the final determination on the cause of death. Cases are re-classified to reflect the ME's results. The police homicide numbers are easily checked with the ME's homicide numbers.

Hey SCC, I heard that a 1st watch car in the 8th District was kidnapped by aliens, and thats why they were red-lined last month. The kicker is the aliens are in cahoots with that beat Sergeant that hates their guts.

The detectives that work outside the Chief of Detectives's office have what is called "super rights" for the CHRIS system. That gives them the power to override the classification that a detective in an Area decides an investigation should carry.

That is how Cline, then Malloy and then Maher kept the number of homicides down during their reigns.

It should be noted that the detectives that did this prior to Cline's arrival as Chief of Detectives retired shortly after his appointment to the post and he picked the replacements with this program in mind.

MM gets bashed on this site often because she was a terrible boss. She would yell and scream at people. She was also a micro-manager.
I worked for her and could verify her unprofessional behavior.
She could probabaly compared to Clinton in personality, pleasant when it served her a bitch the next minute. If you stood up for yourself like many officers and detectives did, she used her husband and other people around her to go after you. She has put bricks on many good officers because they disagreed with her.
I doubt if SP is going after her husband for "revengful reasons" but, Karma is also a bitch.

I hope you don't think that fat phil reduced the crime rate through brain power. Matt Rodriguez did the same thing. This is all those scam artist who work for chief's office do, scam the rest of us, the public and media.

Rodriguez gave a count of the murder rate toward the end of the year. Two days later he again gave a total number of murders. By this time the number of murder count dropped by three. A triple ressurection on Chistmas. Matt, you old drunken asshole, you had you holidays mixed up. I guess you didn't have any outfit guys to do the math?

Lets start out by saying HITDA, Ricky & DEA Billy are a fucking joke. Put all the hard working detectives that are working dope there not homicides or agg batts back in the D unit were they belong. As KJ and HH the Sgts before him did their 2 years and out so should Ricky, oh HH didn’t do 2 years and was moved to get the spot for Ricky boy. Oh but he gets more time because of Cline not his little PR stooge of a wife. The people who think Ricky is some great copper “merit promotion by the way” any asshole can listen to wires and know where to rip the dope from. You should have stayed a Det and not taken the Sgt promotion and then you wouldn’t have this problem. And don’t cry for him as he should just retire and sit on the beach in Florida with Phil in one of his condos they own together and Maria can bring them fajitas and margaritas all day. Oh and I am sure SAS Cronin will be right with them. What a waste of our pension dollars Maria retired Chiefs pay, Cronin at DC and Ricky at Sgt.

I've been in the D division for 15 years. Never as a supervisor. The Mayor and Superintendent want the murder rate to go down. Nobody else cares. What do we care if the city has over 800, 900 murders. Me and other dicks are not going to "hide" murders to make Richie look good. There may be 1-4 deaths citywide each year where the department and the M.E. can not say for absolute certainty was a Suicide vs. Homicide. Maybe 1-4. The murder totals did not drop from the 900s in the late 1990s to the 400s in the mid 2000s because of any numbers games. It also had nothing to do with Cline and his DOC strategy etc, etc. It's because the public housing has been torn down, or the residents where moved out. Crime is skyrocketing in the southern suburbs and down in Chicago. Why? Many of the criminals have been moved out that way. Did we become a much better police department and the south suburban departments suddenly become less effective? Hell no. It's the residents stupid!

Oh hell yes this has everything to with gentrification and nothing to do with cooking the numbers or Cline's tactics used for fighting crime.

All you have to do is look at 002, 010, 011, 012, 014.

002, 010, 011 in the 80s and 90s had 80+ homicides each. In 2007? 002 had 16 homicides, 010 had 23 homicides, 011 had 36 homicides.

012 and 014 was out of control in the 80s and 90s and even the early 2000s with 30+ homicides yearly. In 2007 012 and 014 had 6 homicides a piece. Go to 012 and 014 now, all condos.

check out beats 1124, 1125, 1134, 1135. Where the projects used to be around. 1135s beat didn't have a shooting or homicide in 2007.

IT IS ALL GENTRIFICATION!

Mike Murphy, what a piece of work. Squeezed everyone for donations to memorial fund. Conned recruits to fill out deduction forms the first day. He lied and intimiated everyone to get every penny for his boss. Now he expects a promotion? Did he ever work the street as a sgt or went to a very special unit? He has absolutely no leadership experience. But does have clout.

Except for that minor homicide in February of 2007 involving off duty Chicago Police Officer Jose Vasquez.

Good god are you a dumbfuck.

Mike is not a thief or coward. He stepped on many people to advanced his cause. He hurt people and forced donations. Took credit for work done by others. Mike cares for Mike and memorial fund was a way to help himself. Now he is a sgt soon to be LT. He has the qualities to be a exempt. Be proud of your work, Mike.

All of the above and then some, yeah "they" cooked the books on some cases, especially at the end of the year when a "target" number of homicides for the year is announced. Gentrification helped too and tearing down the projects shifted crime to the suburbs - does anyone have any numbers for homicides in the metro areas outside of Chicago? How about those EMS folks and ER doc's - saved alot more lives than they used to - good for real victims and the todays victim/tommorows offender repeat ER visitors. Do you trust the Medical examiners office? Since it's so well run and non political? Do any of you feel safer in Chicago with all the supposed reduction in crime?

Then just out of curiousity, why do morons keep coming on here asking the mayor to lift the residency? So the 300,000.00 houses now worth 200,000.00 will be worth 85,000.00 or maybe even 65,000.00? That's what they were selling for in 1983 and what some financial experts expect the housing market to revert to during this recession.

I can't think of a single reason anyone not forced to buy in Chicago would do so.

Say what you want about Cline and his choices, but the new guy is no better. Take a look at his moves all have juice, and the Sgts that went into the Executive Class this week all are clout heavey. Its the same book with a different cover.

Poor little Ricky Maher, Him and that Goof Barney Graf made so much money in overtime that they should be looked at, anyway Rickys clout was Hanley from the Unions, Ricky would get Drunk and tell everyone how heavy he was, And Maria, when she came up to Gangs North they put her undercover buying dope in Humboldt Pk, But one problem, She didn't speakee Panish, If Ricky is back, too bad, He had his turn and when your guy is gone, its over, he is too young to retire so he has to wait to 50. he will survive, but Barney, no way, a jag off like him who burned so many bridges thinking the detail would never end, it's over, remember Barney paybacks are a Bitch, Love Kurt Hageman
