New Rumor and Debunking a Rumor

This one has popped up once or twice now:
  • sat morning 3rd district desk sergeant gets a call from a PO due to work day shift. PO needs 8 hours, desk Sgt asks why? PO says he s sick. Sgt says you sound fine to me. Sgt says you might have to come in. PO says I can't I'm sick. Desk Sgt refers him to watch commander. Someone is sent to his house and he answers door and they smell alcohol from him being hungover. They make him blow and hes stripped. There might be more to story but that's what I got.
BS? Or not BS? We're looking for info.

The following rumor however, isn't getting any traction:
  • suburban departments have been contacted by J-Fed and been requested to call CPD Internal Affairs when an officer is suspected in any sort of wrong doing
We've reached out to a few people in the surrounding jurisdictions who in turn reached out to a few other people and everyone comes back with the same report - no such contact has been made with their departments at this time. But let's face it - why would anyone put their own careers in jeopardy in light of the way the winds are blowing at the moment? Continue to watch yourselves and your partners.

I dont think the first rumor is true because a similar incident has happened and the PO is not stripped.

I would have to say FALSE..... 2nd watch watch commander(s)are a couple of the best in the city(Captain P.G. and Lt. T.M.) and there is noway either would deny anyone time due if requested by a P.O. on short notice. I haven't heard any rumblings from second watch personel in 003 regarding an incident like this.

Sorry, but I drank way too much Nyquil for this flu. Now go away. If you want me to blow, call an ambulance, I am sick and not leaving my home unless directed by a physican. Unless you Sgt want to sign this waiver saying that if I become more ill or die do to your request, you and your family are personally financially responsible for my losses.

It is just a reminder to do "only what is required" at work. Don't do anything proactive, let crime go thru the roof. Make paper on everything you can and classify it as it should be. If a scene is an aggravated battery make it so, not a simple battery.. If you hit someone the asa's would charge you with an aggravated battery, not a simple a battery. Speaking of asa's, I recently saw one getting out of his car at an area. So, I ran the plate and quess what. Chicaago resident and no city sitcker. By the time I finished there were 3 tickets prominently displayed on the front windshield. Its the new attitude the city, county and state created so lets stick to it. No breaks for anyone.

To the previous comment about "Tommy from the Airport" being a snitch for Sneed.

That would be Cmdr Tom Argenbriht. Spent about 10 years in 002 tact and homocide detective in Area 1. made sergent and went right to work for Supt. Hillard - personal sergent. Then worked for Grau - personal lt.

I can beleive he's s snitch, likes to start shit. I know he reads SCC every day and likes to post comments that start shit....

Doesnt surprise me..

Word is that J-Fed liked Grau but Daley did not. That's why Grau got dumped. J-fed promised Grau that he would take care of his cabin boy Tommy and make him boss.

Great copper -- shaky boss - never worked the streets as a boss.

Sad news, but true. Look for 4 officers and 1 Sgt from the 017 District tact to be stripped within the next two weeks. This stems from a investigation that has taken well over a year and will be another negative for the media to hammer us with. The facts of the incident have been substantiated and the officers will be fighting for their jobs and freedom.

Why do most officers use the medical like a badge of honor? If you are sick stay home and get better...thats why it is there. Even if you are tired and a little wore out stay home and get better....the day you come to work feeling like hell something COULD happen. Just my 2 cents.

A Knight To Remember
by: Matthew John Knight

His name was Officer Knight
He didn't get much chance to put up a fight

His killer shot him dead
And Knight was eternally put to bed

His wife said to be safe that day
but he had an ultimate price to pay

He loved the city that he served and protected
He never wanted anyone to be neglected

Knight has been put to rest
Knowing that his kids will do their best

Now his killer will spend his life in jail
with no chance of parole

Now the Knight kids will grow up
with out their Dad
Who knows what kind of memories they could have had

But Officer Knight's children
will move on
Even though their Dad is gone.

Well in my 17 years on this job I have worked for many bosses. There have been a few that were by the book and not flexible all. These were the ones that you simply avoid at all costs. I remember years ago when my Mother was terminally ill and under Hospice care, the Doctor told our family that death was coming very soon. I remember calling work and the Watch Commander asked me what was going on. After explaining my situation, the jagoff sighs and says well I guess you not coming in today. The prick never offered me sickness in family and never asked how we were doing. At the time it did not bother me until I had to call back the next day and inform them that she died. The Desk Sergeant took the call and made all the notifications for me while also showing compassion. The Watch Commander never called back and never offered any sympathy. The Commander and everyone else paid their respects and it helped me tolerate this prick when I saw him at the next roll call. There are a few people like this on the job and they could care less about you. My advice to all is to be the better person and do absolutely nothing for people like this.

This weekend- I enjoyed a pie at my favorate Pizza place on Rush street. My out of town cousins like a deep dish and the entertainment of city creatures passing by the window.
Our all time greatest waitress [zoftig Ceri] was complaining about a real dead beat tipper that has started frequenting the place. Seems our new boss [J-Fed] is a real cheap bastard and seems to reward the working stiffs who serve his food with the same low regard in which he apparently holds the people who serve and protect the city. You might want to think twice about fucking with people who are preparing and serving your food. Unlike the POs that you screw with at will, the food folks won't bend over and take it, unless they take a squat in the food while bending over.
You may want to find a new spot, I think a couple of employees here are eagerly waiting for you and the wifey to stop in.

And yes ive always been a worker. not like the pukes that have always abused the medical. but like i said, screw this city any way possible. i never thought when i came on the job 16years ago, i would sound like this...but they give us no choice! next we need to all stick together once and for all and fight back!!! because once they take something away, were never gettin it back!

here's a comment from another blog on here. there must be something to the rumors. too many P/O's being ordered to blow lately. when in the f*%k is this shit lodge ever going to actually start fighting for us instead of some meger increase in our uniform allowance. (which i also hear is going to a quartermaster type allowance.)
and if j-fed wants to constantly compare us to the ISP. why don't you start paying us like em, give us their 26 and 80% pension with a 3% COMPOUNDED interest, take home cars etc... hey lodge 7, YOU LISTENING!?


[The comment about J-Fed ordering P/O's to admin. blow is correct. and the rumor that he notified surrounding suburban depts. must also be true. Those "meter maids" in Oak Lawn tried to jam one of our guys. Reported him to his supervisors on a off duty intoxication allegation. I know this copper, he's a straight up guy. He did more police work in his first five years than any of them would do in their whole career!]

Dear Troll,

Calling in for time due because you realize that you're not at 100% to protect the citizens, and being intoxicated in your own home is against the law? He worked to earn the time to burn, and made a sound judgement that he wasnt fit for duty that day, he should be given the time and commended for making a responsible decision.
That is, if there is any truth to this anyway.
I dont see how this has anything to do with snitching. You can take your holier-than-thou attitude and stick it where the sun dont shine.

Last week, microchips made the news again in a big way when the Daily Mail reported that the London Metropolitan Police will be implanting chips in all police officers so administrators can monitor their movements. It's being touted as an officer safety measure, but it's not making all officers feel safer. Officers are already tracked by GPS devices in their radio headsets, but under-the-skin implants will take that to a whole new level. Some have raised concerns that the terrorists and other bad guys will be able to hack into the devices despite encryption, and know exactly where the cops are at any given moment.

Still can't find any parking at HQ. Looks like they took more sworn off the streets to fill in the fifty they detailed out for the new School Unit.

How about fixing the promotional process? Well we know how he picks em.

Speaking of rumors today.
When I took ethics training today. I noticed that it is a city ordinance violation for an employee (supervisor or exempt) to exert improper influence on the behalf of relatives. We all know this goes on routinely just look who occupies the specialized units.

Well perhaps the Superintendent and Inspector General reading this would like to know which members of J-Fed's command staff are abusing their authority and taking care of their family members in violation of the ordinance. Perhaps these trusted exempts should do a little time and lose their pensions?

Even if you hit the medical, you are required to "open the door" for an official visit. If you're listed as "unable to contact" on a med. check, you're subject to a CR.
These days, with all the heat on Med. abuse, you really don't want that one out there.

I will play devil's advocate here.
If the PPO called up needing time off and sounded under the influence, maybe the boss had a car go over to the kid's place just to check on him. Suicide is a known problem in this profession.
If that was the motivation, hat's off to the boss. And we all know that it's not a good idea to call the boss if you're fucked up. You can always have a family member call and request the emer. TD for you. THINK.

FEDS love to drink on Friday's downtown and then drive to their suburban homes.

We should be on the lookout for them and apply J-Feds rules to them.

We will then see if he and his gang of retired hacks intercede.

that is a true story, i handled it on 2241 beat. complete bullshit by 003 district w/c. p.p.o. was at billy grant benefit at bourbon street and called to take time and was so drunk he forgot he already had time. desk crew thought he sounded to drunk and called 22 and w/c who sent car out. totally fucked this kid.

From a 003rd district p.o, the above is true, didn't happen on 2nd watch though, and it wasn't a ppo.

It's real simple, folks...When ordered to do an administrative blow (in instances like this), simply do what the smarter DUI arrestees do; INSUFFICIENT BREATH. Blow like you've smoked 50 years worth of non-filtered Camels. Blow like you've "got the asthma". Blow like you're my emphasemic grandma aiming for the candles on her 75th birthday cake. When the machine doesn't register and the gold star tells you to try again/harder, repeat the process. Then apologize for not being able to produce the evidence that the department is looking to hang you with. I'd love to see the look on their faces when they realize that they probably don't have a "Plan B" at their immediate disposal. Fuck this department; be smarter than the average bear, clam-up and lawyer-up and never tilt your hand.

For years Daley has wanted to disarm the police in Chicago. This off duty drinking thing is designed to screw over cops in the hope that our union will grow a set and say wait a minute, if we are to be held to this conduct standard off duty we must be compensated...then the Daley trap will spring, he'll say OK, off duty you are your own person, BUT, you leave the badge, ID and gun at the station and go home a civilian. Oh, by the way, you can only register that one "on-Duty" gun free, for all others you pay. At this point our union should rebutt that this then crushes the justification for residency, but alas, Daley knows full well who runs our union, he'll have it easy.

They can't write it up as a refusal. The test subject's name (yours) as well as the machine operator's appears on the blow-receipt, as well as "insufficient breath" (or something to that effect), or your BAC if you "successfully" blow. So...DON'T successfully blow - EVER!!! The only evidence they'll have at that point is the receipt showing that you cooperated with their direct order; you just didn't give them the rope to hang yourself with. If they still persisted and charged you with refusing to blow, you could easily have your lawyer subpeona the results, as they are kept in a database. Then it's new summer home time when you get that settlement for malicious prosecution!!!

I think it's very simple... like someone said, just don't look the other way anymore. Make every B.S. "crime" legit. Every "he jumped on me" that you would 19p and tell her you're going to tour the area for the off. with negative results-make it a report.Start giving paper for every minor incident that you would usually blow off, write NO tickets,do NO traffic stops, etc. That's what I've begun doing and I used to HATE giving shitbirds paper, but with the goal of making J-Fed look bad it's actually kinda fun to give a 3 minute report for stuff I used to take 10 minutes to try to B.S. them out of one.
Think about... if we all got on board with this strategy (that's a big "all" ) we could have this guy in a negative spotlight in no-time. Cline had to resign because of a few media stories of the infamous bar incidents. Imagine what will happen if we all follow this strategy and in a year the #'s show a 40,50,60..% increase in crime in Chicago! imagine the field day the media will have with that story, and someone will have to answer for it. How will Daley justify a $300K+ Supt. with higher crime stats.?
We have an unstoppable amount of power at our hands if we would only unite under one goal. This guy is an outsider, he was never a Chicago cop, who is he to come to our city and hunt us like the criminals that we hunt, at our homes, in our yards because of a few drinks?
Someone once said "You have to be smarter than what you are working on" and folks, J-Fed and his new tactics/witch-hunts/forced blows/termination first-ask questions later/cameras in cars/etc., are all the things we should be working on. We have the power to make the crime statistics shoot through the roof-overnight, all we have to do is report it! J-Fed and/or Daley will undoubtedly have to answer for it.
You guys with 20+ years have the K.M.A. club, well I for one am a new and proud member of the D.D.S. club (DON'T DO SHIT!) Like a boycott of an undesirable product, lets partake in a boycott of an undesirable boss by showing the people of Chicago how much crime REALLY goes on in this shithole-by generating paper for everything.
My dad told me that the rank and file are like the earth and bosses are like the clouds...the clouds are always changing either stormy clouds, or nice fluffy white clouds, but they are never permanent...whereas the earth is always there, to weather any storm.
Remember, the way to get rid of this guy is DON'T DO SHIT!
Be safe.

If it is true that J-Fed and his cronies were sworn in as CPD officers, where is our useless FOP AGAIN? These a-holes have NO Illinois certification. The city doesn't have lateral hiring on the police dept.. And while i'm at it, what about all the civilian deputies wearing the star? I was a state certified suburban copper years ago and had to redo the academy again to join CPD. So if these guys have no state certification and CPD has no lateral hiring, doesn't that mean these guys are impersonating the police? If they did it for them, doesn't that open the door for lateral hiring of P/O's from other agencies? HELLO! FOP?
