Aggressive? HAHAHAHA

Wednesday was what? The third in a series of meetings to discuss Department issues with J-Fed? And already, we don't care. It's a dog and pony show, we can smell the BS from our 3rd floor apartment, and nothing is going to get addressed until Daley addresses it or Daley goes to jail.

Then we get this from the Tribune:
  • Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis told officers gathered for a meeting this week that arrests in the city were down and implored them to be more aggressive on the street.

    Department officials confirmed the account.
Wow. Call us names, paint us with the same brush, throw officers under the bus, give us horseshit equipment, tease us with crap about upgraded arsenals, new cars, working computers, working radios, cave to the "reverends," dump workers, promote morons and the connected, the list can go on and on and on.

But be more aggressive?

Why? Why bother? We aren't seeing any leadership. And only a fool follows someone who walks into walls. We aren't fools, and neither are 99% of this Department.

Sorry assholes (Daley etc)

You brought in this Fed to beat down the working police.

I and over half my watch are refusing to do pro-active police work anymore. Can you discipline us for that?
NOOOO!!
We are guaranteed to have a job for 29years and a day + 75% Pension.

You BASTARDS should have thought about this a while back.

Screw you J-Fed and little Dick!! Arrests are down and will stay down! In my 11 years on this job I have NEVER seen the morale this low and it's SAD!! I thought it hit rock bottom a year ago, but it has become worse and keeps getting lower. I hear from more and more coppers everyday that it just isn't worth going the extra mile anymore for this city and the bosses. I'm even hearing the comments from younger guys that I thought would always be aggressive.
The constant lies, doubletalk, backstabbing, lack of trust, etc. and once again no fucking contract=SHIT MORALE!! There is nothing positve coming our way, it just keeps getting worse and we all expect to get fucked by the city and our FOP again when we do get a contract!

It would be kind of hard for me to look the other way if I witnessed an on-view felony IN MY NEIGHBORHOOD ONLY. Otherwise, I would really have to think twice about going through all the b.s. in processing a goof. Example; the watch commander, detectives, and finally, felony review. Sometimes it's just not worth the aggravation.

SCC,

If we want to advance the department we have to go out and aggressively enforce the law and allow the Supe to handle the political footballs (the city council. the community folks, and the Mayor). If this Supe fails it will be a huge loss for us. Do we want to return to the old insider Mount Greenwood/Northwest side cigar smoking illiterate Supes of the past?

I hate to go off topic but I am on furlough and unable to keep up with your blog. Holy Smokes I looked at the merit appointees list and my gosh the majority were M2 and M4 officers. There were not a flood of of M1 officers! My GOD from reading this blog I thought only M1 and M4 officers were merit appointees.

As far as the issuance of M4 carbines, yes the officers should pass the power test. It would be ridiculuous for some of the 375 pound bad examples we have on the job to tote an M4. The numbers should be severely limited. Personally I don't think there is a need for more than three M-4 carbines per watch in every district and they should be transported discreetly and pulled out only when necessary. They should not be seen on traffic stops.

Me personally I like the new Supe. He has had his hiccups and errors but that is part of entering a new culture. Unfortunately our department has suffered from incredibly poor leadership and we have suffered from being under a political administration that is unethical and at times inept. I say we give the Supe a chance because frankly there isn't anyone in the exempt ranks that are fit to lead the department at this juncture. The only person who could do a better job would be Lt. General Russell Honore, the soldier who bought law and order to New Orleans following Katrina. He would have the personality to cut through the BS, establish priorities, and forcefully advocate on behalf of the department in front of the communities we serve, the city council, and the mayor.

This Englewood Ranger (Former Marine) knows no danger! I am going to courageously follow our new Supe!n Hooyah!!!!!!!!!!!

For the first five months of 2007, I arrested 63 people on the beat car. Same period for this year - 9 people (signed complaints and a warrant or two for a really bad dude). I am proud of this decline. No. But this is the reality of what we face now in regards to leadership. I try to counsel the future of this department - guys with under three years on - to take it easy because they could find themselves thrown under the bus soon. Quite a few of them are still out there running and gunning. I'm all for it but just not at this time. Stay in your car people and let JFED's tenure ride out without becoming a scapegoat.

PAX 501


Since becoming Superintendent, it has been one of my top priorities to provide greater support to
our strongest asset, the men and women of the Chicago Police Department.

Vital to ensuring the success and support of the Department’s mission in fighting crime is
recognizing and developing strong leaders, and some of the most important leaders within this
organization are our sergeants.
Please join me in congratulating the newest class of 76 sergeants. They will bring strong leadership
skills and personnel support to the Department. Of these 76 individuals, 22 of them were
meritorious promotions. In an effort to increase transparency, those individuals who were
promoted meritoriously are clearly identified on the promotion list.
Increasing transparency and creating an environment for professional growth based on a fair
process of promotion is a goal that I and the command staff are fully committed to. Therefore, I have directed the command staff to create a process where all members of the Department can apply
for meritorious promotion. To be sure, this will require an even more rigorous application process,
but it is the right and fair thing to do. A meritorious promotion process should be a source of pride
and distinction for the members selected.

I would like to thank the incoming group of sergeants for distinguishing themselves as leaders within the Department. I know that they will be an excellent addition to our ranks at a time when we need their leadership. Let’s welcome them and their ability to serve our communities and lead the men
and women of this Department.
It is my goal to reinforce the notion of leadership at every rank, and within every member, of thisDepartment. I believe the above promotions, and planned changes are a step in that direction.
Be safe.

Without support of PO's on the street, you lost the battle. They will look good and follow orders but aggressive, proactive policing is down. Young officers nervous and lack effective leadership. New commanders do not communicate with officers, inspectors that strictly enforce every rule no matter how trivial. Tac and gang teams consistently moved from district of assignment to work on problems in the same areas. If we had sufficient manpower, tac would stay in their districts where they know the gang members. Hiring has all but stopped. retirements increased. Read the signs, they are obivious.

wanna improve morale huh?

QUICK TIP THAT WOULD IMPROVE MORALE BEA TAKE NOTES DAT DEGREE U GUYS PAID 4 ME IS WORTH SUMTHING.

1) PROMOTE A COUPLE OF PATROL OFFICERS TO COMMANDER. AT LEAST 15 YRS ON JOB HAVE A MATER OR HIGHER AND MAKE ARREST.

2) KEEP THOSE CAMERAS ONLY IN TRAFFIC CARS THE PUBLIC WOULDNT EVEN KNOW.

3) QUIT USING GANG TEAM & TACT TEAM AS PRIVATE SECURITY 4 ALL DA MAYORS EVENTS. HAVE THE ALDERMAN REQUIRE EVENTS TO HIRE PRIVATE SECURITY.

4) THE RETURN OF THE ONE GUN DUCK DAY. DA MAYOR HATES GUNS SO REWARD THE POPO WHO TAKES THEM OFF THE STREET.

5) MEET WITH THE CHIEF JUDGE AND START FINING ALL THOSE MEATHEADS THAT GET LOCKED UP 4 MISD. THE COUNTY AND CITY NEED THE MONEY. EVEN 10 DOLLARS WOULD HELP.

6) HIRE RETIREES TO WORK THE DESK IN ALL POLICE FACILITIES. I SEE THEM WORKING PRIVATE SECURITY FOR 15 $ AND HOUR. PLUS THEY ARE TRAINED ALREADY AND CAN WEAR THEIR GUN.

7) DROP THE TRU UNIT AND STICK THEM BACK IN DIST. THE ARREST THEY MAKE ARE LAUGHABLE. JODY IF YOU DONT BELIEVE ME ASK YOUR FLUNKY PETERSON TO FIND OUT HOW MANY FELONY CASE WERE PROCESS BY DICK FROM TRU.

8) YOU HAVE TOOOO MANY DESK DOLLIES IN THE AREAS. 1 PHONE GUY SHOULD BE ENOUGH. HOW MANY DESK SGT DO YOU NEED.

9) CUT THE INSPECTORS. ALL YOUR SAYING BY KEEPING THIS OVERPAID POSITION IS THAT SGT AND FIELD LTS ARE LAZY AND CANT CONTROL THEIR TROOPS.

10) START PROMOTING PEOPLE YOU WOULD HIRE TO MANAGE YOUR MONEY.
IF I WAS SHAKMAN I COULD NAME 10 PEOPLE WHO WERE PROMOTED DUE TO THE FACT THAT THEY ARE LOVING A WHITE SHIRT. THEY ARENT THE WORSE PEOPLE IT JUST LOOKS BAD.

SOOOO BEA FEEL FREE TO STEAL THE IDEAS. PETERSON YOU CAN HARP ABOUT YOU BEING THE REAL POLICE BUT HELL YOU STILL HAVENT PAID OF YOUR MORTGAGE WE 30 SUM YEAR ON DA JOB.

Mr. J-fed, you f*ucked up. You took this job from the most corrupt regime in the country and you have that jag-off Daley pulling your strings; you think the rank and file don't know that.

The way cops are being treated and singled out by this city, you have a lot of nerve to ask them to be more aggressive. This city does not want aggressive police. You reap what you sow. You can't have it both ways....

You want change. You can start by telling your boss it's going to cost him. Tell him to quit fucking dragging his ass on our contract. Give us a decent raise where we might get a few disposable dollars after the bills are paid. Fund our pension the way it should be and tell him to have his nephew give back the millions he borrowed from it. None of the bullshit the real estate market fell apart and the money is gone. Tell your boss to quit trying to screw us on the medical insurance. If the retirees were paying too much, I'm sure we are too. It didn't cost us anything at one time.

You can start with those few things. Get us a decent contract we can live with and you might get some respect; then you can ask the troops to do something for you.

I watch DVD's, listen to the radio, surf the internet (wireless internet), eat well, than go home to my family. I am a DOG and dam proud of it. I will even tell the blow hards at the bar telling war stories that they are morons and the DOGS life is where its at.

Mr. Fed,
The state of this department is total shit. You want aggressive, yet at every turn we get fucked with.

Recently I responded to a P.O. asking for an assist. I am from an out side unit, second car on the scene, and when all is said and done a district sgt. asks me why I parked on a fire hydrant. With out responding I got in my car and left.

So, when chicken shit is the rule of the day, I now make sure the chickens are in order and don't worry about the other crap.
Except that is, for P.O.s calling for help and my radio jobs.

In the future fellow officers, make sure there is plenty of legal parking when requesting assistance.

The area 3 and 5 case management Dic’s both say that arrests in response to radio assignments are about the same, but on-view-P.O. initiated are way way down. Why would that be?

1. A superintendent we can’t trust!

While I was never a Cozzi fan, J-Fed is knee deep in this one. If you think activity is down now what will it be if he gets hammered in Federal Court? J-Fed needs to call in any makers he has if any so the Feds just drop it and state that it was handled locally. He can state he did the right thing to the public. The average PPO with one period on the street knows more about police work than J-Fed does.

And his pay scale is insulting to everyone w/o a contract. Since you are getting a pension from the Feds how about deferring your salary until we get our retro checks!

2. A mayor we can’t trust! Enough said. Patrick Fitzgerald could you hurry up a little bit PLEASE?

3. ASA’s that will play both sides of the street. Remember after all else they are lawyers.

4. A scum bag press corps. Did you ever see a front page story about a news anchor or columnist’s multiple DUI’s? Or the weather forecaster three bankruptcies because of a coke habit? Or the wife beater?

P.S. K.M.A. means that you have BOTH the age (50) and the time (29+1) to retire. Some of you rookies sound like J-Fed. At all of his open meetings use as many acronyms as possible (IVC) (DUI) etc. and confuse the hell out of him.

"Monique Bond...said the drop (in arrests) is not an accurate reflection of crime trends in the city. The reduction could be attributed to several factors, including success in putting away drug dealers in street corner conspiracies..."

Therefore, according to this twisted logic, CRIME IS NOT GOING DOWN!

As for the street corner conspiracy theory, Monique, here's how it works today: 2 PO's are parked down the street. On the corner they see several gangbangers dealing. What do they do? They turn around and drive away. Why? Because if the PO's make a move the thugs will call IPRA and get CR#'s claiming abuse, racist name-calling, money stolen, etc., and they will have friends lie as witnesses. The IPRA "investigator" will conspire with these poor victims to trump up more charges on the PO's and even if the PO's are vindicated no action will be taken against the "investigator" or the false witnesses. Now THAT'S A CONSPIRACY!!!!

At the Morgan Park H.S. meeting Weis mentioned how the TRU unit will now be more aggressive. They will augment the Patrol Division and help out more on Domestics and Priority One calls.
He said they will be more in the law enforcement capacity rather than making revenue for the City. TRU will be a tactical law enforcement unit to get drugs and guns off the street.

Sounds to me like what S.O.S was doing all along? Funny how Unit 153 never truly dies...

For instance, If you arrest someone for drugs, they're out in a couple hours and right back doing the same thing AND when they get to court all the charges are dropped on the spot. They even tell you now that they don't care if they get arrested. So why bother, what the f*ck is the point.

I ask you why should we give two shits about people that will shoot us, sue us, try to get us fired just for trying to clean up THIER neighborhoods?
I've come to the realization that they want to live in filth. They don't want us around doing proactive patrolling and stopping them and their relatives looking to prevent crime. They would rather just let the drug dealers sell drugs, collect thier welfare checks and link cards and not have to deal with us all. If they end up with a few casualties along the way, they are willing to pay that price to live in a lawless state.

It's evident by when your chasing someone down the block and you ask the neighbors on the porch where the offender went and nobody says anything.
Why bother?
And wait till the first time you get sued for doing your job and doing absolutely nothing wrong but locking a deserving criminal up. If that doesn't turn you sour to working....

I work in 025 and J-Fed just threw two good P.O.'s under the "J-Fed Federal Indictment Express". Two P.O.'s were supposedly involved in taking kickbacks from tow truck drivers. Now, everyone knows that this is against CPD policy. And if they did do such things, then for God's sake, punish them by giving them a CR # and a warning, perhaps 5 to 15 days of suspension. But what did the new CPD under J-Fed do? They are now under investigation by the FBI AND they were stripped at IAD headquarters on 5/20/08. There you go folks, fuck up once over a minor thing and you will have the Feds after you. What a joke. I could understand sticking the Feds on a P.O. if one steals, makes up evidence, plants guns, drugs, etc... on people. But to have the Feds hound you for taking money from tow truck drivers? And then we are supposed to be more aggressive for this department? Why even bother. I say answer your calls for service and if you see something on view, then help the citizen out. But I would not stick my neck out by doing any type of proactive police work because J-Fed might end up indicting me.

I have been aggressive in the past but that is over. It is hard to stop doing what I love to do and I admit that I feel ashamed in doing so.It is not in my nature to lay down on the job. I want and desire to help good people. However, I think in this climate it is not prudent to stick my neck out or go that extra mile to do police work with an axeman hovering over my head waiting for the slightest mistake.Those of us non-clouted working officers always knew that we would not be protected if we made a mistake like the clouted, connected or related officers. Now it's far worse, you aren't looking at a suspension, you are looking at being fired and the possibility of going to prison. Now we hear of a mandatory Power test in the works, for whom? Everyone? Just patrol? How many Sergeants and above could pass a Power test? From the looks of it, not too many. Everything I see on this job lately is telling me to stop being proactive. This is like some sick version of Orwell's 1984. Everyone is walking on eggshells and handling every situation with kid gloves. Do you seriously think the GD's, Vice Lords,Latin Kings or any other gang is going to be afraid of "Bureaucrat's in Blue"? Stop! Or I'll yell stop again!, Is that what you want? From our point of view nobody wants to be the poster child or the sacrificial lamb that the city will crucify and hang out to dry, then wash their hands of in the press to make an example of some poor sap. I don't mean Abatte or the shoplifter or any stupid off duty nonsense, I mean an honest mistake at work in good faith. Yeah, what I'm saying is, I'm afraid to be the police. I'm not afraid of the gangs,being shot or stabbed,getting beat up,I knew those things could happen to me when I joined. I'm afraid of the politicians that run this city and department and that is a shame.

Dear fellow CPD POs,
I have to make a comment regarding this 'work slow down' topic. As all CPD officers know, the mayor hates us, J-FED (although may not hate us) would F^$# us in a heart beat, and most of Chicago's citizens hate us. There are so many reasons not do anything while on patrol especially not wanting to get jammed up. This department has chosen to promote horrible supervisors and GIVE NO REAL training to POs. NONE! Weapons, self defense, talking to an out of control Chicago citizenry. We have been left out to dry on so many levels. All we have is eachother. If more and more of us continue to hide out in a hole we will create a culture of complacency. Combine that with an ever growing violent crime rate, we will pay with our lives starting with the easier targets who's DVDs are glowing red hot at night. Who cares about parkers and movers (besides Daley) lets just care about ourselves and our families. Lets try to pull some corporate sponsorship and train ourselves or at the very least spend our eight hours moving around while trying to identify who the enemy is and keep a close eye on them as they are watching us. Lets get smarter at how we do police work ie. tactics and strategies. The arrests don't have to rise just are awareness of our surroundings. I know there will be some who will make fun of this but I love my kids and I would do anything for them as I would for my fellow police officer. I would love to see an improvement in our situation and owe it all to us. The FOP, J-FED, and the Mayor will have alot of explaining to do when it is discovered that the PO's took control of the CPD and made it better-ultimately were the only ones who can. Please post any suggestions and then run with it!

Sincerely,
A PO

I think the 15% number is total Bullshit. I was up in the Area the other day and a watched them attempt to put together a line up. After checking 4 southsde Districts they could not find but one M/1 and had to use officers to hold the line up.

The real number may be more like 40%. However the city and press will play it off as arrests are down because crime is down. Remember these words.

They want to save money? Put more cars on the street,at least unmarks? Want to make people accountable? Start at police HQ and the Academy. Why do Lt Sgt and Po have take home cars? What is the reason. What do they respond to? Why does a Lt from R&D have a take home car? Why do POs have take home cars? Why do Sgt have take home cars that never see the street and only park them outside the house? The savings in gas and maintenance alone would generate revenue for more cops to be hired.

Why is that Lt on the Academy have take home cars? What do they respond to? Drives the car to work and back and it seats in front of the house. Waste of equipment!!!

Sworn personnel that have take home cars that respond to nothing, go back and forth to work and do nothing but shuffle papers or brown nose.

Save money and get rid of the take home cars. Hence hire more cops.

Mr Supt.
On one hand your are cheering the police to be aggresive and make arrest. Before you are finished with that statement you saying your going to indict policemen. Maybe you go to too many extreemes for getting what you want. You already blew your integrety with a lot of these choices. Maybe it will come down between US or the Rerevends.

Will someone attending these meetings with Supt. Jody Weis please ask him why the CPD refuses to categorically and unequivocally define the word "MERIT" in writing? That's "merit" as in so-called merit promotions.

Obviously, the City's definition of "merit" cannot be found in a dictionary.

Their (absence of) "definition" is in diametric and flagrant conflict with the praiseworthy virtue of achievment deserving of promotions, awards, honor or esteem.

I would have no objection if the City were to describe this noun as arbitrary and capricious`management discretion to include CLOUT.

The 3rd watch has a few great sergeants and a few real weak sergeants. there is no in between. As for the watch commander...he is terrible at best. he was a cast-off of the 9th district where he was not very well liked. If i were a higher-up, I wouldn't care if the officers were naked with duty belts on to make a homicide pinch. Aside from not giving an address for safety reasons, great pinch by the officers, terrible reaction by some of the most spineless bosses that I have seen in a long time.

Actually, the smart ones are doing exactly that, biding one's time.

Since anyone can read this blog, and, since few of the scum are capable of thinking much beyond the tips of their noses, the obvious possibilities elude them.

You've touched on a few things that you should be sharing only via 'from your lips to my ears', certainly not on a publicly read forum.

Be advised that, while actions may necessarily be 'temporarily' suspended, for the various strategic purposes stated elsewhere, data gathering should not be one of those suspended actions.

The future will become the present, in due course of time, and those who HAVE prepared for it will be the ones who ARE prepared for it.

Knowledge is power.

Gather all the knowledge you can, for the time when it will be of use to you.

Because that time is coming, it will be here before some know it, right after the reasonable and honest goals are attained.

Enjoy the lull, utilize it to your collective advantage and be ready when the inevitable call to duty is worth responding to.

IF the ASA has prosecuted a sworn affidavit case, prove it to us. Also, how about a permanent addition to a "not sustained" CR file if the complainant is found guilty of having falsified the affidavit?

Thursday night meeting at lane Tech in Area 3 w/Supt and Cuelo

I am 25 year guy and was very skeptical of J-Fed at first. Now after hearing J-Fed and being there for over two hours I will at least allow him to try to do what he says he wants to do. He answered some tough questions and seemed honest.

He didn't dodge questions on Cozzi, he said he felt that Cozzi went way beyond the line and was no longer useful to the department. He said Cozzi was not drunk etc. and there were no mitigating factors in his favor. Cozzi basically beat a person handcuffed to a wheel chair and his usefulness to CPD was over.

He admitted to recommending to the SAIC in Chicago that they take a look at the tape. They did and recommended indictment to the Justice Dept.

The limiting factor will be if he can get money from Daley to do things. This City has no commitment to training and has not invested in training for years.

LA and others are way beyond us, Daley has to come up with money somehow or else nothing will change.

As for doing our jobs, I feel that we should be careful to do things right, don't lie down but do not make shit up, no manufactured cases etc. Either the case is there or it isn't. No fudging, no lying, don't give anyone a reason to have anything over us.

So, we will see. One thing for sure, it wasn't the same old line of shit we have always gotten from a Supt. If it's a new line of shit then shame on us, if he can do half of what he wants we will be better off for it. I will reserve judgement and see what kind of contract we get and what substantive changes he makes.

He did say he would like to have a contract in place by end of 2008. Only Daley can make that happen.

I will say this, he came across much better than I thought he would.

When J-Fed came here, he got some very good advice from some individuals. But as usual, most Feds ignore the street cop and go with the guys with the shinny badges. They assume the bosses know more, which is a joke in this political climate.
They is a old saying:
Chicago have many bosses, but very few leaders.
It was true in 1950, and more true now.

This is why Chicago sucks!


A "citizen" while attepting to escape from CPD custody, decides to defeat the rooftop vent on top of the paddy wagon and climb out onto the roof of said wagon, while it is in motion and while handcuffed.

"Don't try this at home kids!" (Most 3 year olds know better than to try this.)Because everyone knows that you can be KILLED or seriously hurt!

So shitbird falls, lands on his egg-shell and dies! Ha-Ha! Fuck him, right?

Well no..this is Chicago. The lawsuit capitol of America. This happened last Saturday. Today, the goof's family files a wrongful death lawsuit in cRook county.

WOW! Unbelievible!

This nitwit was probably a financial cancer to this state, county, and city his whole friggin undesireable life, and now in Death will continue to TAKE!

Welcome to CPD and welcome to the Peoples Republic of Chicago Jody.

This is who you now serve!This goof and the millions just like him!

6) HIRE RETIREES TO WORK THE DESK IN ALL POLICE FACILITIES. I SEE THEM WORKING PRIVATE SECURITY FOR 15 $ AND HOUR. PLUS THEY ARE TRAINED ALREADY AND CAN WEAR THEIR GUN.

Great idea. Move officers on the street and use retirees not civilians. Too many PO's are filling jobs that a retiree or civilain are qualified for. Every unit has Po's as secretaries, time keepers, errand boys/gilrs, jobs for civilians or retirees. Of course, how can exempts hide their kids or friends?

"Hey you want to be police work somewhere where citizens care like 016 or 008....."
Yeah, Districts full of (white) CPD citizens...and (white) cops in those Districts who don't give a damn about policing their own neighborhood!

Department spokeswoman Monique Bond, however, says the reduction could be due to other factors, including success in putting away drug dealers and other crime-fighting strategies.

Monique the great,or Monique the mouth. Amazing how she is so ignorant about police work. From shaking gun barrel to explain how arrest do not lower crime rate. Please keep her locked up in a office. She is a embarassment to this department.

To the 025 goof talking about how the two 025 coppers got indicted for taking money from tow truck drivers, a big F-U!!!! They are getting everything they deserve. They make the honest coppers handlings accident jobs more difficult. These tow truck drivers are ballsy and think because a few idiots allow them on their scene every other officer will. I do not allow them on my accidents scenes and if they do not leave they will be issued a anov and if they persist a ride to the station.
The only thing I do not agree is that the G is only going after the officers and not the actual tow truck drivers.
The department should conduct a reverse sting and go after these pieces of shit tow truck drivers.

Druggies show up every Thursday between 1130hrs & 1330hrs, call their connect on a cell phone, wait

You'll never get any help during these times, Capt. Bimbo has all her day pets down at schools and supervisors are sleeping in station lot. Good luck with that.

why the hell do exempts need take home cars? They are making the most money of us all for doing the least? If you need a vehicle go pick one up at your office.....when you need it.
How can anyone even ask my morale is low around here?
Seriously
