Scandal Goes Big Time - UPDATED

  • OFFICER HERRERA GOES PUBLIC - Indicted Chicago Police Officer Keith Herrera speaks for the first time publicly about his former unit, the Special Operations Section, members of which are accused of crimes including armed robbery and kidnapping, in one of the largest police scandals in Chicago history. Katie Couric reports.
Get ready for the biggest national shit-storm to hit this Department in the past few years, maybe even a decade. And the truly sad thing is that it will cover a rogue team of allegedly unsupervised officers and tar the entire Department with it while studiously ignoring the 15 people arrested for bribes last week, the semi-annual jailing of the aldercreatures, the crooked contracting scandals, crooked land deals involving Rezko, Obama, the mayor's nephew and anyone else connected with the chosen few.

Batten down the hatches.

UPDATE: It's worse than first thought.

WBBM is playing some preview clips. They aren't up and linked yet but the one we just heard is bad. We're summarizing here:
  • Herrera is talking about how it was dope dealers and lawbreakers the crew was sticking up. It's not like they were honest citizens. And sometimes you have to "cross the line" to get these people. Couric asks if there are any "boy scout" cops in Chicago. Herrera replies he doesn't know, there might be, but this is Chicago, not Podunk, Iowa
This is the type of desperation interview that is going to cause a load of collateral damage. It also reeks of a plea deal that fell through. Someone else made a deal on something?

SCC: There is no way I can condone the behavior of J Finnegan, Herrera, Flagg, Black, and the rest of them. However, how much did they "aledgedly" get? Compared to the millions and millions that these politicans are stealing from us?
I'm going to wait till the verdict on the SOS scandal. If they are guilty, fuck them! But do you ever think any of our politicans will see the inside of a prison? Talk about "double standard"!
Think J-Fed will call any of his fed buddies to investigate the corruption going on at City Hall, Ward offices, bars, and all the other places they hang out at?

Beware.... he's dopey looking and after 12 years on, apparently I need to be treated like a child. Where's your pepper spray officer? On my belt asshole. Where's your vest officer? Under my shirt asshole. No open faced handcuff cases are allowed on your belt officer? It's been there for 10 years asshole. Where's your flashlight officer? I took it off after my tour because it went dead again tonite asshole. Your name tag is coming off officer? It came off taking my radio off asshole. Is this really what this fat f@#k should be doing? How about focusing the dogs (insert district) on these watches. GET RID OF THE INSPECTOR POSITION AND LET SGT'S AND LT'S HANDLE ACCORDINGLY. god, this department is a going down the tubes. Sundays' program will not help. Oh and more importantly, tuck in your shirt McMahon, get that fat ass belly off your belt and take a shower. Power test for inspectors?

What a pathetic fool. He systematically commits crimes, i.e. home invasions, armed robberies, official misconduct, etc..., profits from using his star, exploited the trust beholden to him by the public to uphold the law, gets indicted, breaks down like a bitch, tries to off himself in jail, works a deal to further implicate his partners in crime and now talks about it to the media. Is he trying to distance himself from what he knowingly and voluntarily engaged in? This guy is worse than the pimp drug dealers who rat out their fellow scum to save their ass. What does he think he could benefit from by singing to the media? He is going to hang up all his dirty laundry for everyone to see and say that it wasn't him that wore it. Coward. I hope nobody makes a deal with this guy. He belongs in prison. Pathetic Fool.

Ladies and Gentlemen, a round of applause for Mayor Daley! Hi Dick!

Listen here you motherless turd, we're going to see a bunch of people go to jail on this scandal, maybe 10 or more.

It still adds up to less than less than one-tenth of one-percent of the department. Compare that to the 27 aldermen going to jail in 30 years; any idea how big the percentage is a of building inspectors indicted recently? Or the countless millions lost to city taxpayers in Hired Truck (hint - $40 million), crooked "minority" hiring (hint $100 million plus) and a dozen other scams?

Go fuck yourself you jagoff. We didn't excuse anyone for what they did. If they're guilty, they can rot. But 60 Minutes is going to spin this into some bizzaro-world "out of control" police department and we along with 99% of this Department will be paying the price in a myriad of ways.

Now if you aren't the mayor, go attach your lips back to his asshole, smile when you eat his shit and don't forget the reach around. If you are the mayor, we can barely describe the contempt we hold you in, so just do the honorable thing like Bill Henry did right before the indictments came down.

---------------------------------
if only 5000 of the 13,000 cpd officers are trying to do right, things are far worse than I would have thought.

my guess is most of the cpd is pretty decent, just as most Americans are. there are always a few who make the rest look bad.

in the case of cops, it looks even worse when they go to extreme lengths to protect their colleagues when they misbehave.

its human nature to want to try and protect your co-workers, but the public at large generally expects better from police, and when they don't get it, they are offended by it.

At least your city officials get charged. Out here they get term limited out and go back to work for the city again, with a new pension added to their first.

The author Larry Niven once noted that while the death penalty may not deter homicides, it would certainly cut down on j-walking. I think he was on to something.

Dear Keith Herrera,
Thank you for bringing more negative attention to the rest of the us who still are police. I'm sure you've changed since all of this happened and you now see how what you did was so wrong. You just want to say you're sorry I'm sure. ---Yeah right. You were the biggest scumbag from day one. Everyone knew you were a piece of shit and most of us tried to distance ourselves from you. Hopefully the feds or whoever is going to prosecute your ass didn't cut you too sweet a deal because I hope you are tossin salad for 20 years or so. Still have the Hummer? Buy any new houses and sink 200k into em lately? Give anyone else a house lately? Instead of being a thief why didn't you just try to soak the city for disability like the rest of your family? Heard your mom didn't get it and had to come back to work. Guess she'll have to get in a "foot chase". Maybe Katie can do a follow up on the rest of your family and what they do/did for a living. Too bad JF didn't get a quote and have your house painted too.

what isn't a bizarro-world shitstorm is that human nature can't be trusted with absolute power.

that, and the fact that wise people know it, SHOULD have an impact on the police (and everyone). i can see how you'd be pissed off at the ones who raise the profile of this ugly fact from time to time. but they will be always with us, like other criminals.

I don't care if the officers didn't know Finnigan and his crew, if they were in that unit for more than a day, then they need to be bricked for life. One bad seed spoils the bunch.
Fuck off anyone who can say they were SOS!!! many of you know who this is, because I am so vocal about it. I believe SOS destroyed my Dept. All should pay for being in that unit.

Not the first scandal for this department, won't be the last. The only reason it's getting this much attention is probably that it's such a screwed up story that it could have been a movie.

Keith H. put it best. I knew him well. Here's the scoop: When a guy "becomes" SOS he immediately learns how to do "creative writing" to make his cases stick. He didn't learn this in the Academy or in his district. It is highly encouraged. It is taught by the older officers and there is no lie by saying because of it, we got lots of DC's and Honorables. Fuck! I look like a Goddamn general when I put on my uniform. I did it all. At a price...I'm in Area 2 in fucking rathouse district, I lost some integrity and I got ROYALLY fucked by BIS. Sometimes I wish I never went to SOS, because now I keep getting fucked out of Sgt. and Det. promotions. hey Boss, I was YOUR guyt remember me? Look at all my awards you put me in for. This is my reality. I will be fucked with because of this 60 min. program.
Bosses know what he is saying is true. Hey MT, we did what YOU asked of us. Where's the SOS love? SOS-WE were the Masters of Creative Writing 101. Class dismissed youngsters.

Bea was a great commander in 10, and started out well in this new position. There are some big differences, 10 was a good place to work, (and still is,) from the bottom up. Good morale, mostly good P.O.s, good sergeants, lieutenants and captains on all three watches. There were few problems and no scandals there and only a couple of aldermen and reverends. Now imagine going from that to a position where every scandal, every Herrera, SOS, and Finnegan problem is on your desk.

There is something else, there is a long held tradition in the FBI that you never outshine the leader when it comes to taking credit. Melvin Pervis was slammed by J. Edgar Hoover for grabbing the headlines for getting Dillinger. And never, never do anything to discredit the bureau.

What did J. say to B. after those last meetings?

In car camera, CR# handed out for anything, lighted bt tags, Wies being here.

---------

Those lighted beat tags are total bullshit. I'd say in the day time you had about 1-1/2 blocks of element of surprise until the bad guys saw your marked squad coming and drop that down to about 1/2-3/4 block at night. Now with the lighted beat tags, ALL the element of surprise is entirely G O N E. Who's side is the department on. Obviously, they don't want beat cops in marked squads getting the jump on offenders doing wrong. This stupid idea must have been brought into play from some desk jockey that has no clue whatsover and is one of those liberal pukes that was only interested in making sure the fine (cough cough bullshit) citizens of Chicago can identify the squad car in case they have a beef against an officer. I hate this department what it has become.

No Chase Policy gets me sick too. If you are a bad guy in Chicago, step into a vehicle and you instantly get a get out of jail free card. You're free to go sir "please stop by again and sell drugs, rape, rob, murder, you name" and make sure your car is gassed up so you can flee and get away.

Take away our 30,000 candle stick power flashlights and make us carry lights with a crazy 50% less candle stick power. Oops, damn! I couldn't see that armed offender hiding under the porch and before I knew it, he got the jump on us and shot me and my partner. The departments constant speech = WE CARE ABOUT YOUR SAFETY AND WE WANT YOU TO GO HOME SAFE EVERY NIGHT. (cough cough - more bullshit)

We'll disarm you when you go to most court houses and feed you to the wolves. FOP continually ignores complaints about this and looks the other way. Just another fine example of putting officers in harms way. in the courthouse 100's and 100's of gang members, shooters, armed robbers, drug dealers who are all no fans of the police but then throw a few unarmed police officers in the mix and its like putting a target on their backs. fucking bullshit. that judges order in the certain courthouses is dated 1984. Do you think times have changed in over 20 years. I think so

Please post the phone numbers for the Archdiocese of Chicago 312-751-8200 and St. Sabina Church 773-483-4300 so that we can call the powers that be and let the church leadership know how we feel about Pfleger.

SCC, I'm surprised there has been no posts on the recent win for officers.

On 13 May 08 all officers subjected to the BIS/PCP were removed from aforesaid programs following an admission of liability by the department. The affected officers received written notice that the Acting Commander of Personnel "has determined that the basis for the Department's decision for enrollment was not appropriate under Administrative special order 05-02." ..."The member's placement is voided and the member's record will not reflect placement in the BIS or PCP at this time." What's this all mean? In summary, the Dept. canceled arbitration date before letting the arbitrator rule. The city then announced that they were wrong in the way they went about placing officers in the programs. Here's the catch though. No damages to be awarded to the officers. Yes you read correctly, the Dept. admits fault but will not pay out. The FOP who still has yet to formally announce this decision claims an arbitrator ruled that damages would not be awarded. It was unclear whether this was a summary opinion given by an arbitrator reviewing the case and basically giving his opinion on how another arbitrator would rule in full arbitration or if this was a precedent set years ago. We are hoping FOP clarifies this. Or was this another back door deal made between the City and FOP, disregarding the wishes of the affected officers. Any lawyers out there want a class action lawsuit against the Dept., Oh wait, FOP said we would be wasting are money and discouraged us from challenging the decision to not award damages. Hhhmmm!

To "Supervisor in 014" First of... FUCK YOU....You have a lot of nerve spouting shit out of your mouth about "Everyone who was in SOS old or new regime should be bricked" I was in SOS and I am damn proud to say so...I worked there in 1995-1997 and let me tell you something Mr Supervisor in 014...what you see now was NOT going on then...there were no robberies, dope dealing, kidnappings etc...what there was were a lot of hard working police officers doing a great job and making a difference in this city. You have a lot of nerve saying that "anyone who ever worked in SOS should be bricked"...mabye you should be bricked or indicted for theft....for all of the times you took a check and did nothing to earn it..I worked with some of the BEST police officers on this department hands down and I am proud to say that...I am also proud to say that I NEVER took and never would take a dime from anyone on the street...I also never saw any of my brothers in blue take a dime from anyone while in SOS...I agree that what happened in this recent scandal is terrible and has definately put a black eye on this department but for you to accuse every officer who works in SOS as being corrupt and that they should all be bricked is wrong. Most of the officers who were in SOS when I was there were some of the hardest working police officers I have ever seen on this job anywhere...they were hunters, warriors..who did an awsome job.. and got little thanks in return...because it was their job and that was why they were there.I am sorry for the department and for myself that this scandal happened...it makes us all look bad..yes...but you can't blame all of us who went out every night and did the right thing any more than you can say every officer in 015 is dirty because of "Pac Man". To all of the former SOS officers and every officer on this department...be strong..don't let comments like the one from Mr "Supervisor in 014" bring you down...Go out and do the job you have always done...Go out and be proud of who YOU are and don't let anyone ever take that away from you or hurt you. You are all Chicago Police Officers doing an often thankless job and you do it well!! God Bless you all!!

On September 16, 2007, Paul Clisham, 37 years of age, lost his four year battle with cancer. Paul was a father, a husband, and a friend to many. Paul fought this terrible disease with everything he had and to the last day would tell you he was going to beat it. Throughout his life Paul always put others first. In his worst times, he cared more about others than he did himself.
Paul leaves behind his wife, Catherine and daughter, Victoria (Tori). Tori is six years old and suffers from Autism. The future for Tori holds much uncertainty and many challenges, even more so now without her loving father at her side.
Paul comes from a police family, his father is retired and he currently has two brothers on the job.
Paul was my partner for four years and probably the best person I've ever known, you always hear about people who put others first, but I can guarantee one thing, Paul always did.

To
I think that every SOS officer in old and new regimes should have a "Brick" placed on them for the rest of their career. Word in 35th is that they are indeed looking into how to make the officers of SOS more miserable. They have done such a disservice to the City that they will never be able to pay us back!
I don't care if the officers didn't know Finnigan and his crew, if they were in that unit for more than a day, then they need to be bricked for life. One bad seed spoils the bunch.
Fuck off anyone who can say they were SOS!!! many of you know who this is, because I am so vocal about it. I believe SOS destroyed my Dept. All should pay for being in that unit.

I worked in SOS in for 5 years and did all my stuff by the book. I got one CR for nonsense on new years eve and never got a lawsuit and earned a few awards for good police work. You sir are what is wrong with this department. There are quite a few officers that worked in SOS that have never done anything wrong, including me. Your statements are like saying all black people are bad because of the gang bangers and criminals, or all hispanics are bad because of the gang bangers and criminals. Don't lump us all into one category based on a handful of officers. I am not only angered by your comments but also hurt. I love this deparment and I love this job. I don't care for those at 35th or city hall, but I truly care for all my brothers in blue on the street. If you've ever worked with a guy from SOS you would know that we are the first ones to back anyone up and ride on a hot call. You never have to worry about us dodging a job or talking someone out of a report.

You strike me as the reason why we as PO's are disenchanted with our supervisors, we have no leaders. The test they give for sgt and lt don't test for the leadership that we need and we are looking for. Not a wet noodle, or a spineless white shirt that we are in surely not in short supply on this department. Make decisions, stand up for your officers and try to make each officer under your watch a little more happy each day by being understanding.

Blame the ones that brought discredit to our department by being arrested and charged. Don't blame the ones that are still employed and trying to make a difference in this silly city we live in.

You probably won't like the analogy, but I'd say the same thing about CPD as I would about the City, or the Post Office, or any other large organization with problems as big as yours:

When the problems are that big, it's not a labor problem. It's a management problem.

That's a citizen's view, for whatever it's worth.

Think about that the next time you consider jumping on the postal workers, or the stiffs taking small-money payoffs in Zoning or Inspectional Services.

Kuzas added, "I believe [the interview] is Keith's way of trying to help other officers from getting in trouble."

DISGUSTING! J-Fed should just give him a job at the academy. That will go over real good. Then he could get Willie Loyde to give a class. Then get a couple whore's,pimps and mob guys to speak.

2 things. 1 herrerra was a young good aggressive copper when he worked in 008. He metFinnegan, Suchoki,his boys there when they all worked tact together. Finnegan Im sure was able to convince these young guys that this was the right way to do shit, and fuck it their gangbanging dope dealers anywasy so who cares. Look you can all deny it, but ANYONE who has worked in the ghetto understands the need for creative writing. The ASA wontapprove agg batt charges, psmv, robberies, etc unless we write creatively. It doesnt mean we put cases on anyone, we all know that we have the right guy but unfortunately we all know that in CROOK county the ASAs are as much a part of the problem as anyone. Now their creative writings and etc went too far and led them to be thieves in the long run. obviously they felt they would be able to egt away with the shit they did. I know that Keith was a good copper at first and did get a lot of shitbags off the street, but he got even more arrogant than he already was and got out of control. I just think coppers that sit here and say that u have NEVER done any creative writing or the such is lying and lets be real we all could be facing misconduct charges for something we have done in the past. Its the nature of the beast. I just am always amazed how the white shirts NEVER go down. Its because they are the REAL rats. My 2nd point is concerning YOU SCC!Im starting to wonder if u are actually run by the dept as a way to make us look like even bigger assholes. If you think of it it would truly be an ingenius idea by a higher up at city hall to have this blog created as a way to have coppers turn on each other, write dumb shit and then have it exposed to the media. It would also explain why u are getting much attention from the media. HMMMM, maybe an inside connection? Post negative shit, have hundreds of coppers comment and post dumb and sometimes immature insults back and forth at each other and then have the media reading it thus tearing us apart more and splitting us up ts called divide and conquer and after many of your posts Im wondering if maybe that isnt whats truly going on here!

5/30/2008 03:19:00 AM

Chicago Police Cmdr. Michael J. Acosta for lying to Federal agents though MANY more have deserved indictment.

Or was this another back door deal made between the City and FOP, disregarding the wishes of the affected officers. Any lawyers out there want a class action lawsuit against the Dept., Oh wait, FOP said we would be wasting are money and discouraged us from challenging the decision to not award damages. Hhhmmm!

$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$$

Hey Asshole, Arbitrators can only make someone whole under the contract. They are prohibited from awarding damages. That said, please hire yourself the most expensive lawyer in the world and commence throwing money out the window. You're a dick (and I don't mean detective).

Hey Fop, no good deed goes unpunished, eh?

SOS scandal. There were many rumblings of this scandal as far back as 2003! That's when I first heard about it and one of the indicted was doing time answering phones while one of his beefs was sorted out.

And Tobias was at SOS then! Tobias and Radke and Dugan and Darling all share the blame for they were steering that ship for much of the period in question.

I don't care if the officers didn't know Finnigan and his crew, if they were in that unit for more than a day, then they need to be bricked for life. One bad seed spoils the bunch.

Sounds like someone is a little bitter about not getting into SOS. Too bad you never said shit when we were in 14, cleaning up your mess. You got big balls now that the unit is disbanded. Why don't you let me know who you are so I can walk into your district and say "FUCK YOU!" to your face. As for your brick thing...I guess its not working because I got my spot!

Obviously your a clout baby piece of shit, whiner, who never was the police!

I was in SOS and very proud to say so! It sickens me to think about what those guys did and how the department and the city has let a few bad apples destroy our image and morale.

Regardless of what some of you mindless supercop wonders out there think about the officers who were in SOS and SOG before that and Gangs before that...It was these officers who day in and day out took the weight of the city on their shoulders. Officers in SOS were the first ones to back any of you up, stop to make sure you were ok and worked in the "shit" without complaint.

One thing you didn't hear from SOS officers was negativity towards district coppers (except for dog asses). Just because we got to SOS, we never stopped being a patrolman. We had a slightly different job and one we enjoyed. We went into your districts on a mission, but we always backed you up, we always responded for your calls for help and we never turned our backs on you. I think we deserve the same!

So, supervisor in 014... go fuck yourself and save your bullshit sentiment for someone who cares to hear it!

To all you guys that worked in SOS, Gangs, or even the old SOG and before that, the old Task Force- I for one appreciate what you did and the way you helped us in the districts out. I was never in any of those units, I was always in a District so if anybody thinks I'm saying this because I'm a former SOS guy, guess again. As a supervisor in a district, I find what that goof Sgt. from 014 said to be truely disgusting. Don't let any jagoffs like him get you down. You did a good job and deserve to hold your head high.

Dear 014 supervisor,
The scandal existed beacuse white shirts ignored the established disciplinary process you asshat. Typical white shirt. Blame a blue shirt. What could other officers do when the commander held JF and his crew up as the example for everyone else? Are you that obtuse? Who ignored the hundreds of court deviations that clearly showed a pattern? Who covered up numerosu CR#'s that clearly showed a pattern of corruption and brutality? For once, hold white shirts accountable for lack of leadership. SOS is a glaring example of command staff looking for numbers and ignoring corruption. I am embarassed at the typical district supervisors. 014 has a serious problem with you.

2 things. 1 herrerra was a young good aggressive copper when he worked in 008. He metFinnegan, Suchoki,his boys there when they all worked tact together. Finnegan Im sure was able to convince these young guys that this was the right way to do shit, and fuck it their gangbanging dope dealers anywasy so who cares. Look you can all deny it, but ANYONE who has worked in the ghetto understands the need for creative writing.

You are so wrong! Keith didnt meet suchocki in 008, suchocki never worked in 008. Second thing Herrera was never a good cop. I knpw I watched him in 008 till he left 008. He was a peice of gargabe with a wake of Cr's to boot. he never "locked up the bad guys" as you say he took care of himself and attempted to make himself look good, you can use your imagination as to how.

This is not good turns evil, he was never good. All arrogance and no brains/ Arrogance belongs to the Devil.

I don't agree with the bashing of each other at all. I think that in this case Herrera is no longer "us" he worked for himself and a few others benefit. I happen to personally like some of the guys involved in this and I was never shocked when it came out. I was sad because it was allowed to happen for so long by the bosses, that it was criminal that no bosses were taken down in it. Its best that Herrera the most selfish boy, I have ever met just go away and do time or run or anything ,but leave this broken department alone.

Finnegan is now in federal custody. Herrera, Suchocki, and Sherry are all on bond for state charges yet they have no court dates or docket numbers in state court. None of them have been charged with a federal crime either. So what happened? They talked and have agreed to pled guilty to either state or federal offenses. I'd bet my life on it.

A Chicago police officer was shot and wounded Friday evening in Chicago's Pilsen neighborhood on the Near West Side.

The officer was shot in the knee and his injuries were not life-threatening, said police spokeswoman Monique Bond.

The shooting happened at West Cullerton and South Morgan Streets. Independent Police Review Authority personnel, who investigate shootings involving Chicago police officers, were en route to the scene to gather witness information.

Neither they nor Bond could immediately release further details.

Considering Mr. Pflegers actions and words action must be taken. No threats, no violence. The foundation of the Archdiocese is MONEY. With the amount of money flowing in from our middle class parishes such as St. Daniel the Prophet, St. Jane De Chantel, St. Symphorosa, St. Rene and many others a huge impact can be made. The money from our salaries fuels the Archdiocese. It shows support, it lets them know we care.

These schools provide substandard education,expect outrageous financial commitments. Trust me I have the money, its not about the money. But how would St. Daniel and all of the other schools in our blue collar parishes feel if we sent our own message.

STOP GIVING MONEY TO THE CATHOLIC CHURCH!
YOU CAN GO EVERY SUNDAY AND GIVE AN EMPTY ENVELOPE!

It is already gone. The state pension board took care of his ass. Might get a portion for the time he was a state employee before he was the Secretary of State, which computes to $60,000.00 a year, as compared to the $200,000.00 he was going to get as a retired governor. The pension board may have rescinded the 60K also, but not sure.

Word in 35th is that they are indeed looking into how to make the officers of SOS more miserable. They have done such a disservice to the City that they will never be able to pay us back!
I don't care if the officers didn't know Finnigan and his crew, if they were in that unit for more than a day, then they need to be bricked for life. One bad seed spoils the bunch.
Fuck off anyone who can say they were SOS!!! many of you know who this is, because I am so vocal about it. I believe SOS destroyed my Dept. All should pay for being in that unit.

Listen you ball less little fuck, why don't you say who you are if you are so vocal about it. Then all of us officers who worked are asses off in S.O.S. and kept our noses clean at the same time could approach you at the neighborhood tap and see what you have to say then. I, myself, would love for you to tell me to my face how big of brick you think should be placed on my shoulders; for with that brick, I would gently set in down and then knock your meritorious teeth out. Fuck you and the boss' cock that you rode in on!!!! Put your name out there big man, and let's see where that gets you.

Hey Asshole, Arbitrators can only make someone whole under the contract. They are prohibited from awarding damages. That said, please hire yourself the most expensive lawyer in the world and commence throwing money out the window. You're a dick (and I don't mean detective).


Straight from the FOP newsletter 6/2006:

The CHA grievance resulted
in the largest financial
award from an arbitration
decision in our history.

Who's the asshole now?

And what's the alternative fucknutz? Public school? I send my kids to Catholic high schools so they can learn how to be civilized, values/faith based human beings who know how to conduct themselves productively and respectfully in society and I haven't been disappointed.

Pfleger is a lone wolf. He needs to be sent to a different parish. Preferable to Lemont with all the nice Polish senior citizens.

Then we'll see how much time he has to devote to his activism.

First of all, I was not in SOS. That being said your a fucking pussy. It's obvious that you are too much of a coward to confront any SOS boys, even though you claim to be vocal about it, because you didn't sign your name. Im sorry Sarge, but telling the PPO broad you've been trying to fuck, doesn't count as being vocal. Sign your name you fucking pussy or go back to the night shift at the blow job factory.

MT was the "great" leader of this unit for over 13 months! You cannot tell me that in that time he DID NOT know what was going on.

Please, his people were bringing in large numbers of guns, drugs, money, arrests.
The higher ups in this Dept. pushed the numbers game. "We need more guns, we need more dope, we need more arrests," etc, etc, etc.
MT was and still is one of those that pushed this game.

Without saying it himself, he encouraged this criminal behavior.
I believe that this became a game for this crew. And as with any game, the longer it went on the funner it got, the more prople wanted to play.

But to say that MT did not know is absurd! Even if it was only a little inkling = he knew.

South side public schools suck. Northwest side public schools are improved and have better programs than cathpolic schools. Public grade school is a serious alternative to subpar catholic grade schools on NW side of city. So much for southsiders.

I agree there isn't anybody that heavy. If he was dirty J-Fed's friends would tell him and there is no way J-Fed would keep him. Never worked for Tobias but from what I no and heard about him, he wouldn't allow that shit.

SCC, I am sure that the many Catholic officers reading this blog are as outraged as I am about the comments of that nimrod Father Pfleger. In this day and age of accountability, the Cardinal should issue a punishment greater than the verbal reprimand that Pfleger received. Please post the phone numbers for the Archdiocese of Chicago 312-751-8200 and St. Sabina Church 773-483-4300 so that we can call the powers that be and let the church leadership know how we feel about Pfleger.

Cardinal is afraid of him. He is not a priest but a reverend in a priest's uniform. catholic church has slipped and tolerated child molestors, priests stealing money and now giving racist, political speeches. Very weak response by the cardinal, the leader. Ignore the obivious unless story has attention of media then issue bullshit statement. Cardinal should work for CPD with his leadership ability.

SCREW YOU!!!!!!! 10 years, mostly in a fast dist. NEVER stole anything! Never put dope on anyone. Stop making excuses, you are a CRIMINAL IN A UNIFORM!!!! Scc, feel free to clean this post up, Im so pissed i need to step away...

5/30/2008 06:26:00 PM

You sir are 100% correct....you have a right to be angry and I feel your anger too. Anybody who thinks for even a second that the things done by this crew of criminals was right or "good police work" gone wrong is in serious need of counseling. This type of action is not only criminal, it is disgusting. The problem is that the management condoned this type of action. For years and years they wanted numbers of arrests (nobody ever cared about convictions). They had Edge missions and sweeps and "drop cases" and foot chases where the offender always had the dope still on him and he always "resisted". Remember the old adage....the fat kid in the back seat was always driving the stolen car.

The reason these guys always got their man was not because they were smarter than the rest of us and it wasn't because they were "the real police" unlike the rest of us....it's because they LIED!! I never got the awards and I never made the huge arrests that these guys did but I did my job honestly and to the best of my ability. From what I can see.....the "real police" deserve to rot in prison for what they have done to this job. Nobody believes the police anymore and I don't blame them. All this lying has caught up but what bothers me most is that that is was encouraged and condoned by management for years and years.

Quality police work was based on how many people you shot and how many arrests you made. Nobody cared about how you got there and whether what you were doing was right or wrong......Hell....there are people on this job who don't even know the difference anymore between right and wrong and that is why they are defending these pieces of shit!!

Keith H. put it best. I knew him well. Here's the scoop: When a guy "becomes" SOS he immediately learns how to do "creative writing" to make his cases stick. He didn't learn this in the Academy or in his district. It is highly encouraged. It is taught by the older officers and there is no lie by saying because of it, we got lots of DC's and Honorables. Fuck! I look like a Goddamn general when I put on my uniform. I did it all. At a price...I'm in Area 2 in fucking rathouse district, I lost some integrity and I got ROYALLY fucked by BIS. Sometimes I wish I never went to SOS, because now I keep getting fucked out of Sgt. and Det. promotions. hey Boss, I was YOUR guyt remember me? Look at all my awards you put me in for. This is my reality. I will be fucked with because of this 60 min. program.
Bosses know what he is saying is true. Hey MT, we did what YOU asked of us. Where's the SOS love? SOS-WE were the Masters of Creative Writing 101. Class dismissed youngsters.

5/30/2008 01:05:00 PM

FUCK YOU!

You don't deserve a promotion.
Creative writing my ass. If you can't find a legitimate criminal in this fucked up city you don't desrve all your awards dickhead.

YOU are the epitome of the SOS copper. Go fuck yourself.

And the creative writing course taught by Finnegan and the supervisors must have sucked because you clowns would never go to court to testify.

BIG PUSSIES. Write some BS on an arrest report to lock someone up but don't have the balls to stick by your story and testify.

If you are forever tainted because you worked in SOS, GOOOOOOOOD!

You knew what these shits were doing. You should have left.

Maybe they'll have a fundraiser at bourbon street for all you SOS clowns.
