Next Meeting

We can't find the schedule someone posted in the comments, but if we recall it correctly, there's another "J-Fed Song and Dance Get Together" coming up Tuesday at the Academy and Wednesday at Lane? Who's got the list? In the meantime, we need to make sure those in attendance ask a few important follow up questions:
  • What is the status of the TASERs Aunt Bea promised to check on? Please provide the UPS Tracking Number so officers can check on the status of the shipment as it moves toward town. By the way, if Aunt Bea doesn't show or doesn't have an answer, rest assured no one cared enough to find out.
  • Monique says that every squad car will be outfitted with a rifle. We've received a number of communications that a vendor is being looked at to install rifle racks in every squad car. Have you backed off the attempt to lower the health care costs to the City by purposefully underarming the first responders under your command? And why is the range training people with M-16s instead of M-4s? Oh yeah, the Mayor hasn't even allowed the Department to purchase these weapons yet - our bad.
  • As the Mayor's Office ordered Fleet to cancel an order for 187 new squad cars from Ford, would you care to comment on how we can't do our job if we can't get to our jobs safely.
  • And as previously stated, thanks for releasing the "merit" list - now would you please define "merit"? We'd really like to know what to shoot for since we aren't related to anyone, we aren't owed anything from anyone, and we refuse to debase ourselves by sleeping with anyone.
And let's not worry about nonsense like traveling to promotional sites and J-Fed giving us a ride home and the contract. If you want to be promoted, you'll make sacrifices; if you want to get home, take a cab; if you want a contract, call the mayor, because J-Fed isn't authorized to negotiate diddley squat.

Good job by that pussy white shirt in 012 for calling off a vehicle pursuit on a armed robbery offender. And a big thanks to the dispatchers on zone 13 for not letting 002 or 021 know of the chase. If they would put that shit out maybe he would have been caught once he bailed from the car. A similar thing happened a couple of weeks ago at the JISC when no one on zone 13 had any idea that a copper from 007 was fighting a prisoner and he escaped until 15-20 minutes after the fact. My advice to everyone is switch over to the nieghboring zones yourself and give the heads up, apparently the dispatchers are too busy handing out those parkers to look after us.

SCC,

I may be wrong but if anti-gun Daley has Monique saying that every squad will soon be equipped with a rifle...Don't you think that Daley is worried about a terrorist attack?

It makes perfect sense. Daley is anti-gun but hires a Fed to run the dept. J-Fed tells him the truth that terrorism is coming. So The CPD gets heavy firearm power to combat the terrorists.

Am i the only one who feels this way. Terrorism is coming our way soon. Probably to our schools and shopping venues. And they will be armed with more that a 9mm.

Don't you understand that this is the real reason why Monique and Daley want these weapons in ous cars?

Am I a moron or what? Nobody else mentioned this reason else. It makes perfect sense to me.

Just think of simultaneously shootings in a mall or school on the same day and the bad guys got away.

The economy would fall.

Some what on the 12hour shift topic...
" Authorities want to know whether the officers' emotions over Liczbinski's death -- and their desire to apprehend the suspect who remains at large -- had a role in their actions.

Stress levels among officers on the street are "simply too high," and the department aims to eliminate 12-hour shifts, Ramsey said soon after the incident."

Los Angeles ex-cop sentenced to 102years in raid case

LOS ANGELES (AP) — A former Los Angeles police officer who participated in home invasion robberies staged to look like police raids was sentenced Monday to 102 years in prison.
William Ferguson, 35, was convicted of participating in more than 40 phony raids from early 1999 to June 2001 at homes in working-class neighborhoods while he worked at the department's scandal-ridden Rampart Division.

In January, a federal jury convicted him of conspiracy to deprive people of their civil rights, conspiracy to possess marijuana and cocaine, violating the civil rights of others and using a firearm during a violent crime.

Ferguson's sentence was so severe because he was convicted of four firearms charges which carry a mandatory sentence of 82 years in prison.

U.S. District Judge Gary Allen Feess said that Congress passed such sentencing laws "because they don't trust people like me."

Here is the reason we are training on M16's. (Source Wikipedia)

The M4 Carbine is a family of firearms tracing its lineage back to earlier carbine versions of the M16, all based on the original AR-15 made by ArmaLite. It is a shorter and lighter version of the M16A2 assault rifle, achieving 80% parts commonality with the M16A2.The M4 has selective fire options including semi-automatic and three-round burst (like the M16A2), while the M4A1 has a "full auto" option in place of the three-round burst.

Do you people agree with these meetings?

What kind of backward universe do all of you live in?

What kind of leadership is this?

He is the boss. He should be telling you what is going to happen with manpower, equipment, assignments, and discipline.

You should not be telling him that you want a new taser or a new gun. You should not be telling him that you are happy or sad.

He should be talking. We should be listening.

There are only a very few appropriate questions:

Are assignments/units going to be created or eliminated in the near future?
What are the requirements to obtain one of these assignments?
What promotional exams be given in the near future?
What equipment changes can we expect in the near future?
Are there changes in the disciplinary code?

The meeting should last less than 30 minutes.

Keep a list of all the things you want in your head. Because that's where it belongs. Nobody else cares what you want.

"And a big thanks to the dispatchers on zone 13 for not letting 002 or 021 know of the chase."

Yep, we got a written message via the PDT after the chase was over (no mention of offender bailing from car) as I was sitting in the hole with my feet up doing nothing as JFED has temporarily made me do nothing. This would have gotten me out of the hole though. It meets one of the requirements for leaving the hole -- Help a fellow officer, answer a dispatch call, bathroom break, two personals, lunch, checkoff.

For those people actually still doing traffic/street stops for no purpose other than to just do it (unless u know 100 percent there is a BAD BAD guy in there -- like the armed robbery offender from 12), get a clue and relax.

Be the police when u need to. Don't go stopping a car hoping they have something under the seat. We are three months into a three-year vacation. See, this JFED thing isn't that bad, just adapt folks. Bring reading materials and a DVD.

When will this WEIS-el expound in writing on the CPD's version of "MERIT" that is consistent with that found in any standard dictionary?

Unless and until he does so, "MERIT" is a flagrantly obvious Chicago euphemism for unconscionable CLOUT and corruption.

Yet, he keeps ranting on his pretentious "core values" acronym of P-O-L-I-C-E: Professionalism, Obligation, Leadership, Integrity, Courage and Excellence. Bullshit!

This hypocrite is as phony as a $3 bill. He "talks the talk" but adamantly refuses to "walk the walk".

And in his unbridled arrogance, he actually expects to earn credibility with the rank and file. Damn, this condescending prick must really think you're as dumb as a box of rocks.

STFU, unless its shots fired at the police or copper shot, it gets terminated, period. When will you guys figure it out, they don't want policework anymore, and chases are a thing of the past. The Sgt. made the right call, som etimes you people need to be saved from yourselves.
The other zones should get a heads up for officer safety if nothing else. Now STFU, but stay safe while doing so...

No one in command will EVER state how many they will take off a list again.

This happened with the 1993 sergeant's test. Someone high up went on record and stated "500 sergeants" would be made. Then they only went up to about "430" on the list. GUESS WHAT HAPPENED NEXT?????? Lawsuit ! ! ! !

With the 1998 test they went up to about 530 on the list; with the merit SUCKASSES they made over 700 from that exam. (Classes made in August 1998, 1999, 2000 and June 2001)

Perhaps someone knows how many they made off the 2002 sergeants exam?

My advice to everyone is switch over to the nieghboring zones yourself and give the heads up, apparently the dispatchers are too busy handing out those parkers to look after us.
---------------------------

Agree. The dispatching has been really poor lately. You need to help others and help yourself. Don't hesitate to take responsibility.

Monique says that every squad car will be outfitted with a rifle. We've received a number of communications that a vendor is being looked at to install rifle racks in every squad car. Have you backed off the attempt to lower the health care costs to the City by purposefully underarming the first responders under your command? And why is the range training people with M-16s instead of M-4s?

SCC what you say is confusing. The City is installing rifle racks in vehicles....you go on to say the City is underarming first responders instead of lowering health care costs. If they are putting racks in all the vehicles how is that underarming us? Also the fact that they are training guys w/ m16's instead of M4's is no big deal. The 16's are here and ready to use, why not get a jump on it. Not trying to insult you here but do you know the difference between the two? There are plenty of reasons to get pissed off at the City. Lets stay focused on the real issues and forget minor ones like that.

Good job by that pussy white shirt in 012 for calling off a vehicle pursuit on a armed robbery offender. And a big thanks to the dispatchers on zone 13 for not letting 002 or 021 know of the chase. If they would put that shit out maybe he would have been caught once he bailed from the car. A similar thing happened a couple of weeks ago at the JISC when no one on zone 13 had any idea that a copper from 007 was fighting a prisoner and he escaped until 15-20 minutes after the fact. My advice to everyone is switch over to the nieghboring zones yourself and give the heads up, apparently the dispatchers are too busy handing out those parkers to look after us.

You're absolutely right. The dispatchers have been awful lately. I work in 003. Which is on a zone itself. There was a shots fired call at 75/Colfax and we had no clue. (our border is 75th st for 004 and 006). And almost simultaneously, 007 was chasing a car for shots fired into our district and we had no clue.

This isn't the first time shots fired or something of significance has happened on our borders and we were not notified. This isn't the first time someone was chased into our district and we weren't notified.

These dispatchers have to communicate with each other somehow.

Don't assume it was the Sgt. in 012 that called off the pursuit. It was the Captain. The Sgt and Lt. let it go. The Capt. called it off.If you were listening you would have heard that it was 1299. He is a new Capt. recently out of Headquarters. Different view of the world.

It was a slap at J-Fed, attempting to lower health care costs by attrition. Underarming first responders is going to get someone killed. Our sentence was a bit awkward. Sorry about that.

Monique is talking out her ass again and sending mixed messages. That's on her.

We're big believers in performance being directly related to training. When the shit hits the fan, you revert to training, so you should train with what you end up using. Yes, the M16 and M4 are built on almost identical platforms with the M4 being shorter and only good out to a few hundred meters. That's why you should train with what you use - it might make a difference. It also shows the City continues to shortchange training.

Response to here are a couple of questions....The reason why there was a law suit on the 1993 Sgt.'s exam....They said they were going to 500. They got to 410....and the last 90 P.O;s.. Little richie decided that there were not enough minotities in the last 90 so he decided to rip the list down even though the dept was still short Sgt's.....So then they gave another test.

Signed 1 of the last 90....

Any truth to the rumor coming out of the 25th District Indian Burial Ground that two of their officers got stripped by IAD? Supposedly they were involved in taking kickbacks from tow truck drivers for towing vehicles from accidents. Also, rumor has it that the FBI is investigating this matter too. Any truth to it coppers from the 25th district??????

I went to terra training last week. The main trainer said in passing that if an attack happened CPD would be manning roadblocks through out the city with army reservists armed with a m-16 and 20 shot clip. Fuck that, that reservist will be on his way to Iran and we will be manning those road blocks with our m-4's.

I hope to hell you guys don't end up with the Colt M4s. Damn twist rate in the barrel is too high.

The military specification is for one turn in seven inches. That will stabilize everything suitable for duty use, meaning everything that won't overpenetrate and won't fragment before it penetrates. One in nine inches works pretty well, but won't always stabilize the heavy rounds like the 75-grain TAP that lots of PD's use, or the 77grain Mk-262 which is probably the best thing going in Iraq.

As for the range difference between the M-4 and M-16...not enough to matter. The longest shot fired by a cop in the US on record was 186 yards. Either rifle, with proper ammunition and without a loose nut behind the trigger, will work just fine. I like the M-4 because it's a little easier to maneuver on building searches, but I just switched to a clone of the Mk18 (AR15 with 10.5-inch barrel, probably not legal in Illinois but perfectly okay where I live) and like that even better.

According to Mark Donahue at FOP meeting last night, Jody plans on buying thousands of SURPLUS M4's from government for $47 each. Yes, that was $47 each.

Than the Department will pay someone (connected? with clout? Daley's son, cousin, nephew) approx $700 to "refurbish" the junk, er, surplus weapons.

Then, after we pass the power test we can carry the junk, er, surplus weapons. No word if we will be allowed to buy new quality weapons ourselves. I would buy a new one and so would many others.

In typical Chicago Police Department fashion this is sounding like another CPD cluster fuck. Cheapskate their way through buying the weapons and what can we expect on training? The usual rush job of shit training. Anyone in the military , expecially the US Marines, knows you need to TRAIN, TRAIN, TRAIN to use a weapon like this well.

The usual and customary CPD way of train-once-in-a-lifetime will not cut it. Expect mistakes, accidental discharges, wild rounds etc. The US Marines train constantly, the CPD trains almost never. The M4 is not something that can be handed out and then skimp on the training.

Yes, it is true. I work in 025 and in roll call the Captain announced it. So indeed it is official. And yes, the FBI is investigating. God only knows if there will be federal charges against those two highly decorated officers. I wish them the best. J-Fed is not fooling around folks. Any infraction, and he will refer you to his buddies in the FBI and then the U.S. Justice Department. Good luck and stay safe out there and answer your calls for service.

When J-Fed comes to Morgan Park H.S. to meet with the Mount Greenwood and Beverly po's he will be pleasantly surprised to see some truly intelligent beings.
Everyone knows that the coppers living in 022 are without question the REAL POLICE. They will put him to the test and make CPD look good. There will be no jackasses like Hegewische girl and party girl Julie from 001. Mapquest not needed. You'll see....

Capt. Gibson is a great guy. You guys in 012 are furtunate to have him; you also have a very smart Cmdr. That being said, chases get called off every day, and for a variety of reasons. It's not just your head on the chopping block when those things go bad, and they frequently do, so don't knock the white shirts for protecting themselves from a potential clusterfuck, bad chases travel uphill when people are injured or killed on the CPD, and I don't know too many blue shirts who would be willing to put their homes, their livelihood and their families at the mercy of a civil jury. That being said, I like getting the bad guy just as much as most any working copper out there, but I also know where my main allegiance lies. Family first.
