Save the Cargo Pants

The fashion police readers strike again:
  • Obviously SCC does not work the streets. If he did, he would know how utilitarian the cargo pants are for the guys who work a beat car. Stay behind your desk and leave the police work, and cargo pants, to the people who actually put the cuffs on the bad guys.
  • You probably don't work the street if you agree to get rid of those cargo pants pockets. You need all these pockets for your search gloves, FOP book, UCR code book, and pocket size hand sanitizers!
  • Obviously, SCC, you don't work the street much, if you did you would want all the pockets you can get--no matter how they looked--its a survival thing--we need to place pens, FOP book, 10-in-1 tool, kevlar gloves, plastic throwaway hospital gloves, small version of incident reporting guide, MCC code book,flashlight, and i'm sure i'm missing out some things---We need all the pockets we can get--Us supervisors need it also for the tazer's cause in most of the districts the cases are broken and we can't use them--so we only have one choice but to place them in the cargo pants pocket
Again, we work the street daily, 6 in a row, just like a few thousand other guys and gals here. We only opined that the extra pockets made the pants look goofy. The material is fine, it wears better, doesn't show snags and holds up better under trying conditions.

We've been lectured by plenty of old timers, "The more you have on your belt, the less you have in your head." We'd like to add, "The more you have in your pockets, the less likely you are to do any police work."

Two words for everyone saying you need extra pockets for FOP books, UCR books, sanitizers, gloves, pens, 10-in-1 tools, flashlights, etc: Gear Bag. We've got all of the above plus our report box, two slim jims, ticket books, extra pens, screw drivers, and hat along with 5 pairs of flex cuffs, a third pair of handcuffs, leg shackles, extra OC, aspirin, a first aid kit and a half a dozen M-80's for fun time lawful police purposes.

You carry all that extra stuff in your pants, you aren't going to make it over fences undamaged.

Check the FOP website in regards to items the city has responded too in negotations. This is just one topic which deals with uniform allowance.

--Uniform allowance payments required to be used toward uniform purchasing, maintaining, improving, upgrading or replacing.

--Employee is to be required to comply with accounting procedures established by the department.

So the Detective laughing in the earlier post, time to remove the foot from you mouth.

Just like the city requires you to tell them when you make over X amount of dollars they are going to make sure that if you take a uniform check from them it is spent on police uniforms or expenses, complete and utter bulshit.

Wait and see the union fuck us on this one and let it slip through

Also look at the Cities propsal for pay raises. 1.1% for July 01, 08!!!!!!!!!

We never had those disgusting cargo pants in my day! We all carried two guns and left that other crap in our vehicle trunks.

Other than a COP/Fop book and contact cards that was it.

The picture Crimefile put up from the Sun Times on his site proves a picture is a thousand words. Chicago cops look like shit today.

I see no hope for a bunch of sloppy, dead end, out of shape kids.

Wow! I thought nobody outside of me carries the M-80's anymore.

Good for you!!

They come in real handy for a lot of things, most of them legit.

Throw a couple on a slow night in a not too nice area and sit back and wait......within two or three moments you'll get some jack ass outta the house, no shirt on, looking all tuff, and the best part, he will be carrying his gun.

Man, my fto taught me well years ago. I have had seven or eight uuw's from doing this, and they are still only a buck or two a piece in Indiana.

That is money well spent, and the face on those guys, well there is no price for that!

One of the problems we have is that the cargo pants are poorly made. They should not be showing the wear and tear in so little time. Several years ago, downtown started to allow the uniform companies to dictate our uniform specs. 5-11 uniforms are just as expensive.
The union was going to set up a discount uniform purchasing program, but then some of the uniform houses got to them ($$$) and they dropped the idea.
The guy on the street always get the short end.

Brian my friend.....you have not climbed a fence in years and you will never climb one again unless you lose about 150lbs. It's not the cargo pants that make your ass look fat....it's your fat ass that makes you look fat!!! I know this comment will never see the light of day, but I just had to say it. In addition, it's not the baseball hat that makes you look bad, it's the fact that you need a haircut Sergeant.

The cargo pants are great. I have suffered burns on the tops of my legs from the hot sun beating on those awful polyester pants, just driving around. If they bring back those polyester pants I will definetley be filing a lawsuit for the first burn I get. Those pants are useless, the made with single seams that that with one wrong move will split and woo hoo there are my granny panties! For 13 years I had to wear thick tights under those pants to keep my legs from getting burned and sweated my ass off in the summer because of the layers. They suck unless you work inside.
Let me keep my cargo pants. I keep them clean pressed and wear a fresh pair everyday. They are also very comfortable.

Come on SCC what else would you say in response but that. Like you would call yourself out for being inside. Your gear bag line almost beat you calling the pockets goofy. My wallet UCR FOP or anything else doesn't get caught on fences when i jump them. But putting stuff in those extra pockets when you need quick storage area is great. What kind of working six are you doing where you don't release that? I call bullshit SCC. You just got caught showing us your lack of knowledge. For what officers working in a uniform every day learn to appreciate. A little bit more lack of knowledge about the everyday copper and you'll be ready to be a boss.

bib overall, with those slant pockets and attached loops on the waistline......for carrying night stick and minilites, snap chest pocket idea for carrying pens and ticket books, usually made of very durible material, machine washable all seasonable, resist snaggings, urban contemporary look, fast shoulder straps release for those mad dashes to the bathrooms and those cute bronze color buttons and snaps, matches nicely with CPD blue or white shirts, bib great for eating at all of those greasy deli's and upscale soup kitchens

On the last Downtown St. Paddy's Day parade a uniformed p.o. from the 'burbs was in a downtown tavern after marching and was enjoying a frosty beverage. This suburban dept.'s dress blues are very similar to our own CPD blues. In walks non-other than J-Fed and entourage on a premise check. Eagle-eyed J-Fed immediatley spots the copper imbibing the "gusto" approaches and states: "Officer I DO NOT want to see you drinking in uniform!" The 'burb cop recognizes J-Fed looks him in the face says "OK" and continues drinking his adult beverage. J-Fed re-emphasizes that he does not approve of this officer drinking in uniform. The officer finally says to J-Fed "Hey Man, I don't work for you! Look at the patches on my arm." Gives J-Fed a polite nod, turns away and resumes his celebration of Hibernian pride, leaving J-Fed speechless.

You are a TOOL! THIS DEPARTMENT doesn't want you to chase. So if the Sgt lets the chase go, and the bad guys T-Bone a car with a family in it, what good will the chase have been for? Or if you get T-Boned by a truck & yourself and your partner are killed, who won? If the car that was hit killed your family, you'd question why the police were chasing someone for a bullshit robbery. The department has made it known that if there's a chase wherein a Sgt allows it to continue, that Sgt will be held responsible. If you have the balls to chase, have the balls to keep it to yourself, so that when the shit goes south, you take the heat and your Sgt is off the hook. If you're gonna chase and call it in, expect it to be called off.

For any 8th district coppers who have kids attending John H.Kinzie school I just wanted to let you know that the school showed a rated R movie to 11 year olds that included FULL frontal male nudity. I cannot afford private school but I would instantly take my kids out of that school if I could. No permission slip was sent home regarding this movie.

Check the FOP website in regards to items the city has responded too in negotations. This is just one topic which deals with uniform allowance.
--Uniform allowance payments required to be used toward uniform purchasing, maintaining, improving, upgrading or replacing.
--Employee is to be required to comply with accounting procedures established by the department.
So the Detective laughing in the earlier post, time to remove the foot from you mouth.
Just like the city requires you to tell them when you make over X amount of dollars they are going to make sure that if you take a uniform check from them it is spent on police uniforms or expenses, complete and utter bulshit.
Wait and see the union fuck us on this one and let it slip through
Also look at the Cities propsal for pay raises. 1.1% for July 01, 08!!!!!!!!!

If the city wants us to be more accountable for our uniform allowance and make sure it is used for uniforms then perhaps they had better stop listing it on my W2 as income earned!
Income I earn I can spend any way I choose!

wake up kids, just answer ur radio jobs and thats it ! they will hang u out to dry if you think you still want to be the police.

do nothing !

C'mon, I like eating up the court time or taking the money. We all know the drill. One TVB for traffic court, one misdemeanor arrest and maybe a couple of felony one baggers for some extra fun court.

Going to court some months is like having a second job, and half the time I'm in court less than 2 hours. Comparatively speaking I rather be sitting in court with my thumb up my ass instead of working a second job.

That and sitting on an arrest for about 1 1/2 - 2 hours keeps me off the streets. Someone calls for back up of course my partner and I will run out there - done it before.

The biggest issue is don't write a ton of tickets. You take more money from the city by doing arrest and going to court.

from someone within shouting distance from J-Feds inter sactium..a)the cargo pants are here to stay.

This is at the direction of his boss, lil Richie. He likes the Supt to at least look the part.

Explain just why it is "unfair" for the city to expect that you use a uniform allowance for uniform upkeep. A few too many spoiled children on this job.

Never said it was unfair. If you need to spend the entire uniform check every year on new clothes you need to learn how to take care of them better. I have the same three pants and 6 shirts the last 4 years. They all still fit properl and look good. Why should I forgo and checks then becuase I am able to maintain my uniform.

THIS JUST IN FROM THE CPD Women's Christian Temperance Movement...

True the story appears a little far fetched but wait, it could be true.

The way the department was trying to scare us I wouldn't doubt if J-Fed and his new "yes-men" were out just dying for a chance to jam up a copper drinking on parade day.

Hopefully nobody did anything stupid like drink in uniform after reading J-Fed's PAX 501 warning us about the ills of alcohol (I thought I was reading something from the prohibition era).

It oould be true because plenty of non-CPD coppers were having a good time and enjoying the day with their friends and families. I wouldn't put it past J-Fed in his quest to eradicate all alcohol drinking on the CPD to rashly mistake a suburban officer for a CPD officer.

I hope it is true because it goes to show that even people who are completely sober can make mistakes (even one as simple as recognizing the uniform of the department you command), J-Fed!!

Also, the "don't call it in " is terrible advise, if a chase results in an accident and it is denied that a chase in fact existed, they are going to track down every camera from every business, as well as all the intersection cameras the Dep. of transportation has up and if it shows a chase, all involved are fucked, Rule 14, remember it. All thses cameras are being tied-in to OEMC as we speak. Don't do it!

Comments like these show why morale is at an all time low on CPD. If were not ripping a Sgt. We are ripping the two year wonder like we were never there (hypocrite). Then we rip police who express their frustrations about not being able to chase anymore. If we all took this energy and focused it on the real problem. Daley and his lack of back bone with the community when it comes to how we work. Things could actually change. We all know he runs the show and tells the bosses what to do. It starts with no parkers and movers. You can still make dope and gun arrest just don't give them their revenue and bullshit numbers. Until we get serious about these types of things. Are frustration about this department will be wasted energy.

SCC, no one should carry the taser in a cargo pants pocket! The static electricity buildup there could cause the taser to discharge!
Get the word out! Safer to carry it in a deep vest pocket.

Hey Asshole! Its safer to carry it in a taser holster!!! like your supposed to carry it!!! Not in a "deep vest pocket". Do things the right way!!! Keep everybody safe!!!

For any 8th district coppers who have kids attending John H.Kinzie school I just wanted to let you know that the school showed a rated R movie to 11 year olds that included FULL frontal male nudity. I cannot afford private school but I would instantly take my kids out of that school if I could. No permission slip was sent home regarding this movie.

3/25/2008 03:40:00 PM

Wow, I can't believe the reaction and suggestions some of you guys gave to this parent. I would not want my children being exposed to this type of thing in a public school.
Here is my suggestion mom, get out of Garfield Ridge. As fast as you can. Do whatever you have to do. Or switch schools.
Do you know there is a Virtual Charter school now in Chicago? Lots of police and fire kids attend. The city provides everything for them to work on school work from home online, then a couple days a week they attend school near the Depaul Campus. It is not homeschooling and they get grades assigned just like regular school.

Sorry, I like the cargo pants and find them very useful when processing an arrest. I take reports/paper/copies, narcotics bag, etc and stick it in the cargo pocket where it stays until needed. It's like an extra set of hands.

Thank you for the suggestion and support. You would be surprised how many people think the school has the right to do this. Even one copper told me that there is no way the school would have done it because it is illegal. Um, since when is showing an R rated movie to someone under 17 violating a LAW? Ratings are not regulated by law. However the ratings are established for a reason. It seems to me this school has alterior motives for showing movies such as this. People in other states have been fired for showing such movies to students. Not in Chicago though. Police families have to deal with stuff like this because the city knows we can't just pick up and go. The virtual school is a good idea though. Thank you again for the suggestion.

Yes.

And I didn't raise any of them to be terrified of a naked penis. Or vagina.

Nor did I raise them to be idiots, fearful of everything and everyone.

Nor did I ever lie to them, or attempt to conceal any of the realities of life, or teach them to bury their heads in the sand, like so many ostrich-like individuals choose to do, or to react to the perils of living by trembling in fear at the thought of their own, or others, sexuality, or to have contempt for others unless, and until, others prove themselves worthy of contempt, and even then, 'judge not, least thee be judged'.

I raised them to think with the brains God gave them and to not allow themselves to be brow-beaten by the willfully ignorant, especially the holier-than-thou willfully ignorant.

Do you really think that your children, or anyone's children, actually want to remain ignorant and uninformed about the aspects of life they will soon be an integral part of?

Do you really think that you are doing your children a service of any positive benefit, by striving to keep them as ignorant and uninformed for as long as possible, long after they have discovered, on their own, many to most of the things you've been led to believe they do not know of?

Do you really think you are being a 'good' parent when you deny the individuality and personality of the very persons you believe you love and care for?

Get off your lazy ass and relate to your children as the persons they are, and maybe, just maybe, they will trust you enough to be honest with you and share who they are with you, not just show you only what you've trained them to believe you want to see.

Our children are born to become adults; the longer you insist on obstructing and interfering with them learning how to live their lives, the less prepared they will be.

You have got to be kidding.

With all the real problems in this world, do you really think that kids don't get in to see whatever movie they put their minds to seeing?

And that kids don't know how to download ripped videos from the Internet?

And that the natural curiosity, in kids, and desire to know what they do not yet know, can be, or should be, denied or obstructed?

If you don't know it already, your job, as a parent, is to prepare your children to live in the real world, not to satisfy some fantasy you harbor of vicariously reliving your 'innocent' childhood.


As for

that's a swell idea, remove all experiences concerning the actual living with other people, get your kids accustomed to seeing everyone, other than you and yours, as not suitable associations, train them to fear and reject most of the living part of life, deny them the opportunities to have to learn to deal with the various aspects of human behavior, that'll really prepare them for when they have to actually live in the world.


No wonder the mayor has this city by the balls, when smart people, like yourselves, choose to flee, in terror, at the horrible thought of an exposed johnson appearing for a few moments in a fucking movie.

Obviously the city has your dumbass by the balls because you don't know how to read. There is nothing at all sheltering about the Virtual Charter School that has been established recently in Chicago. It is not homeschooling amish bullshit. It's real school taught by real teachers. They go on field trips, socially interact with kids and two days a week attend class in a classroom.
My child doesn't go to this school, we pay for her to attend a private school that is very expensive. Not everyone can afford to do that.That coupled with the fact that you are forced to live here without any good public school options surrounding your own neighborhood means you don't have that many options to begin with.

Wait...maybe I will move....oh, I can't because my home is worth $60,000 less than my current mortgage.

I know two police families that attend this new school and it works out very well for them.

It's ashame you take the innocence of a child for granted. I don't. I am a parent and I take it very seriously.

P.S. You sound like a hillbilly. So your kids are the ones we are trying to get away from FYI.

What is your definition of 'innocence'? (be as thorough as you are capable and willing to be)


What is the basis of your definition of 'innocence'? (ditto on the thoroughness request)


What is your definition of being a parent? (ditto on the ditto on the thoroughness request)


What is your definition of 'hillbilly'? (no need to be thorough on this one, just honest)


Also, please elaborate on your stated opinions of "...It is not homeschooling amish bullshit..." and "...It's real school taught by real teachers....", being as detailed and specific as you are able and willing to be.


In addition, do you know the name of the movie in question, and have you ever seen it?


Also, what percentage of your children's time is spent in school, what percentage is spent experiencing the world outside of their home environment, both physically and mentally, and what percentage of their time is spent associating with people other than their parents?

Feel free to break down the above percentages on a year by year basis, from their birth through their turning 18 years of age.


Finally, please address the concept, if not already addressed in your responses to the above, of the difference, in perspective, between a parent whose primary desire is to help prepare their children for living their own lives and a parent whose primary desire is for their children to effectively become clones of themselves.


Sincerly,

In reverse order:


I submit comments, the kind souls who own this blog decide whether to post them or not. You got a beef, take it up with them.


As for the sequence from 9:34am through 9:53am, thoughtful commentary is not your forte'.
And sarcasm is rarely an attractive quality in a anyone, especially stupid sarcasm.


Since this entire exchange of comments began as a disagreement over the 'appropriate' nature of a single event occurring within a school environment, that being the viewing of an R-rated movie containing an alleged scene of 'full frontal' male nudity, one can only surmise that the original posted comment:


"Off topic

For any 8th district coppers who have kids attending John H.Kinzie school I just wanted to let you know that the school showed a rated R movie to 11 year olds that included FULL frontal male nudity. I cannot afford private school but I would instantly take my kids out of that school if I could. No permission slip was sent home regarding this movie.

was submitted by someone who strongly feels that their children have no need to be 'exposed' to images of the naked human body until they presumably are permitted to, by their parents.

The sequence of comments on this issue that followed may have been made by multiple individuals, but, as the anonymous nature of blogging provides only clues as to who is posting what, what we're left with is the content minus an identifiable contributor.

No matter, it is the thoughts that count.


My point was that ignorance is rarely beneficial to children, especially children approaching puberty.
And that children, being human beings, will seek out what they are curious about, with or without a parent's guidance.
And that an R-rated movie shown in school is the least of a parent's worries.



As for the first comment above, I have more respect for your opinion than you do, since you presume that your opinion has no value.

Or is it that you know your opinion has no value?
