Sarcasm and Silliness from a Windy City Cop
posted by SCC at 9:18 PM
Sorry SCC, but had to inform you of another softball from the CAPS office:A Chicago police officer was charged with shoplifting in south suburban Chicago Ridge after department store security guards stopped her from leaving with clothing she allegedly had not bought, police said.Carie A. Hooker, a police officer for 11 years, was stopped shortly after 5 p.m. Monday when she tried to leave the Kohl's store, 9700 S. Ridgeland Ave., with about $100 in women's clothing, Chicago Ridge police said.Store security called Chicago Ridge police, and Hooker was cooperative when they arrived, Chief Tim Baldermann said.She was charged with misdemeanor retail theft.Maybe she forgot just like that chick at happy foods.
I saw Callahan there.
Curious to know if anyone asked the Supt what was the criterea for picking the last class of merit.
JODY WEIS: CHANGE WE CAN BELIEVE IN.not
Finally a Superintendent with balls.
Carie must have lost all her looks. Sugar Daddy POs not buying her things anymore.
Whats the story of the girl from Happy Foods???
jimmy carroll held a meeting today at the childrens zoo and roy,timmy & donny were there and voiced their concerns regarding that they are now required to work an entire tour w/o overtime slips.
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.This is from a different post, but it is right on target...in WHAT CONTEXT can JFed put all that is being offered in these meetings with a LACK of experience as a blue shirt (first responder).He hits the street surrounded by swat, tru, gang, tact all dressed up in bdu's, sirens & lights, like the 4th of July...is that the experience of blue shirts (1st responders) six (6) days straight...let's get REAL!
These meetings are no different then a glorified CAPS meeting for police officers. Whats the difference? Jody says what we say at CAPS meetings...."I'll look in to that." "Ok, were gonna get right on that." Then he walks out of the meeting just like we do. (thinking these people are a bunch of goofy, whiny saps that must think I really care about there petty issues.
Curious to know if anyone asked the Supt what was the criterea for picking the last class of merit.5/20/2008 09:53:00 PMthis class's merit sgts was still based off of the old merit system. allegedly the next sgts class, probably fall j-nuts said, will be on the new system him and the rest of the goldstars are developing. he promised some good things, seemed interested in what the PO's had to say about raising morale, stumbled on cozzi again that guy from 013 really gave it to him and he was like a deer in the headlights for a bit, he said new vehicles either tahoes or crown vics for all the beat cars by next year, m-4's should be in by 01 july, he was pleased that these questions were more about the dept as opposed to peoples personal issues, except the one chick from 008 who was mad the dept owed her money for her masters and that her lt. has gotten 2 CR's against her what a moosh, J-roids wants to eliminate alot of the pimpy shit inspectors do ie open cuffs, seat belt, no name tags. all in all there was roughly 100 PO's in attendance and i know i didnt touch on all the points but these were just some..he still doesnt have my vote yet but ill wait and see if he is true to his word or if these were just empty promises
anonymous said...Carie must have lost all her looks. Sugar Daddy POs not buying her things anymore.5/20/2008 11:15:00 PMShe wasn't as pretty as she thought she was and her boyfriends were big losers.
NOT YOU AGAIN! By now everybody knows that you have no use for Carroll. Let it go wimp boy. A weasel like yourself would never have the balls to say anything to anybodys face. Carrolls gone and I sincerely wish you were as well! Now sk you mom to give yu a cookie and go to bed.
2 more softballs out of 025. When will it end?
Was at the meeting and one thing about J-FED is he will take the tough questions and let you speak,he said we will be getting about 150 crown vics by fall,m4's by the end of the year,he even said the Inspectors are overreacting for pimpy shit,IAD is stripping po's to fast,no new tests for recruits until early 09,new pdt's in the next yr,a po had a great suggestion if J-FED wanted to boost morale 2morow,he should look into the Mike Mette case and reach out to the FBI office in Iowa and if anything, look into the facts and the judge and the fake victims father,he said he would make the call,now if he does that,it would be a big deal and maybe we give him some play,time will tell,B Cuello was taking notes so lets hope he is serious cuz that would go a long way,nothing is off limits so if you go to a meeting he will take all questions,lets just hope he walks the walk.
. . . "She was charged with misdemeanor retail theft. Maybe she forgot just like that chick at happy foods. . . "-----------------Yes!Sometimes you do just forget that you have the stuff and just walk out . . oh darn! I should have not drank so much alcohol when I went shopping on the southside.
J-Fed's zipper was 3/4 open when he first appeared. One of his kiss assers whispered in his ear and then J-Fed turned as if he was talking with this person as he zip his zipper. Too funny! Somebody in a rush J-Fed? Or was there a back room "promotional exam" before the meeting?
It wasn't Happy Foods, it was Whole Foods at Peterson & Cicero. She was from the IG's office.
News Flash:Bad News:No new contractNo 10/12 daysNo new pdtsNO M4sNo new carsNo increased manpowerNo HONOR (see secret merit process)Good News:J-Fraud has ensured that his OLD FBI buddies with zero police experience got soft jobs at the CPD.Bottom line:Watch what J-Freak does, not what he says.
I was at the meeting,First thing they handed me my keys to my SUV,Then i got my M4 then a meal ticket for food,and i new radio,and a 12hr paystub. and 20 new body bags,thanks J-Fed.I like change.
"He said new vehicles either tahoes or crown vics for all the beat cars by next year. He said we will be getting about 150 crown vics by fall."Either J-Fed is uninformed or he is flat out lying. The mayors office recently ordered fleet to cancel an order for 187 Ford Crown Vics. that were scheduled to arrive at 52nd. and Wentworth around the 1st. of August of this year. Don't expect to see any NEW vehicles anytime soon.
3:53 AMJody just wrapped up "an oral interview".
Did J-Fed serve glazed donuts with the Kool-Aid?
He hits the street surrounded by swat, tru, gang, tact all dressed up in bdu's, sirens & lights, like the 4th of July...is that the experience of blue shirts (1st responders) six (6) days straight...let's get REAL!5/20/2008 11:54:00 PMNot that I disagree with you on everything, however getting input from the little guys is good management. Would you rather he only talk to the yes men surrounding him?
Doent she have like a 400,000 dollar house out west? What are you thinking Carrie???
Hey I just wanted to say that I had the oppertunity to attend the meeting yesterday. I must admit the I had negative feelings on J-fed b-4 I had the chance to actually talk to with him. Actually the boss has some really good ideas and i think we should at least give him a chance. J-Fed talked about getting new squads, a new cr# system because he knows that the old system is bs. Also he spoke about revamping the promotional system and how they assign po's to units. I think he deserve's a chance!
I told Carroll what a thieven useless ass(a big one at that) he is, now I'm on a mission
I was skeptical going into the meeting last night. What I will say and someone else touched on, no question appeared out of bounds. I will agree the copper from 013 hammered him on the Cozzi ordeal, however he ended up beating a dead horse. J-Fed made no apologies for sending Cozzi to the Feds. I will give him credit, he didn't waver on his decision, right or wrong. One thing he also said was that a police officer who was recently stripped for an off duty incident was to be reinstated today because of certain precations he took before heading out to indulge in a few. He said he felt reinstating this officer for a minor incident would show that he isn't against drinking off duty as long as you show the forsight to avoid trouble. I will say this, in the end it could all be smoke and mirrors, but for once CPD has new blood. I don't like that its a FED (would rather have another large city chief) but at least its someone that isn't necessarily "stuck" with the "Chicago Way". M4's will be here. He said more than 150 Tahoes (if they can get the cameras to fit) or worst case scenario Crown Vic's will be here this summer. New PDT's are on the way, and batteries for radio's are being looked at. At least this is movement. When was the last time so many different things were being addressed in some way. I am still withholding judgement, but was overall somewhat pleased with the meeting. Hopefully next time even fewer personal (individual CR issues) questions will be asked, and more overall deparment questions can be asked.
Maybe she forgot just like that chick at happy foods.??????????????????/Happy foods? Someone shoplifted at Happy Foods? I thought it was Whole Foods.
I DO NOT WANT 12 HOUR DAYS AND I DO NOT WANT 10 HOUR DAYS~I CAN BARELY HANG ON AND DO 8 HOUR DAYS AND YOU ASSHOLES WANT TO DO MORE?!
No new test for recruits until 2009??? Can someone ask why it takes 1.5-3 years to get hired in Chicago, when NYPD and LAPD can hire people in as little as 4 months, with the average time being around 10 months? How come only 1 out of 6 pass the completely subjective pysch eval? How come there is no appeal process?
Aunt Bea was taking notes. She's good at that. Well, at least she can write. Adding up all those bar tabs on 39th street gave her that skill. Bea! , We'll have a couple of Millers don here!
150 Cars that figures to about 4 per district minus the cars that will go to Units. Rifles? who gives a ratsass.Once again it was suckhole assclowns in attendance willing to buy the Company Lies.Kudos to those with better things to do with their time& gave freakazoid the symbolic one finger salute. As they saying goes,"BITE THE HAND THAT FEEDS YOU SHIT"!!
J-Fed's zipper was 3/4 open when he first appeared. One of his kiss assers whispered in his ear and then J-Fed turned as if he was talking with this person as he zip his zipper. Too funny! Somebody in a rush J-Fed? Or was there a back room "promotional exam" before the meeting?5/21/2008 03:53:00 AMHe seems to be having trouble with his wardrobe. First gloves, now zippers?
The guy in 013 who hammered J-fed at the meeting had a point. He basicially told him morale is down because you an outsider came in and gave one of us up, referring to Cozzi. If the feds wanted Cozzi, they would have got him on their own. J-Fed said he was a bit concern that the arrests were down.
Was at the meeting and one thing about J-FED is he will take the tough questions and let you speak,he said we will be getting about 150 crown vics by fall,I was at the a/3 garage and the MM guys said that jfed cancelled the crown vic order and that they were taking cars out of the junk pile and getting them ready for the summer. So I wonder which 1 is telling the truth? If these shitboxes are unsafe refuse to drive them.
"...leave it go...Carroll's gone..."Carmie? Is that you?
If J-fed defines merit he revolutionizes this department!!If this guy actually "defines" merit so we all know what we have to achieve to get that coveted spot, that would absolutely do it for me. I would love the guy. Just think how far that would go in the blue shirts minds to think they actually have something to strive for. Also, that would then get rid of all the politically/family connected incompetent bosses we've been getting lately.
I DO NOT WANT 12 HOUR DAYS AND I DO NOT WANT 10 HOUR DAYS~I CAN BARELY HANG ON AND DO 8 HOUR DAYS AND YOU ASSHOLES WANT TO DO MORE?!Ok, we'll continue to work this shit schedule of 6 straight days because we have someone who is disgruntled. WTF
"I DO NOT WANT 12 HOUR DAYS AND I DO NOT WANT 10 HOUR DAYS~I CAN BARELY HANG ON AND DO 8 HOUR DAYS AND YOU ASSHOLES WANT TO DO MORE?!5/21/2008 11:28:00 AM"Don't whine on this blog, richie, you're the one who wanted to be mayor for life.

#1 PRIORITY FOR OUR NEW SUPT!DEFINE MERIT PROMOTIONS!INDEPENDENT REVIEW OF MERIT APPLICANTS! NO PHONE CALLS, CLOUT, PATRONAGE!!!EDUCATION?MILITARY SERVICE?ARREST ACTIVITY?DISCIPLINARY HISTORY?MEDICAL ROLL HISTORY?FTO, TACT, UNIT EXPERIENCE?PRIOR WORK EXPERIENCE?TIME ON THE JOB. MINIMUM 10 YEARS AS A POLICE OFFICER.VERY SIMPLE IN GENERAL!!!BUT TOO HARD FOR CPD TO IMPLEMENT!!
Curious to know if anyone asked the Supt what was the criterea for picking the last class of merit.5/20/2008 09:53:00 PM##################################Yes. First, you have to spell criteria correctly.
More fake pro-J-Fraud posts, I see.
Did anyone else mention what he could do for mike mette?Is he gonna use he fbi connections to right this travesty of justice.Fuck all our little disgruntled beefs lets get mette some help.If J-Fed did this he would have my 100% backing.Do the right thing J-Fed read the court manuscript and help mette out.
I'm sorry but I don't think that you have to be disgruntled in order to not want the 10 or 12 hour schedule! It's great for all of you that want to work more side jobs or have a stay at home spouse or relatives to watch the kids but what about those of us who are single parents with no extended family or parents that need help too because they are elderly? Good luck trying to find day care and personally, I don't want to be away for what will amount to 11+ hours if you count the commute time! Then factor in going to court and I'm sorry but that's worse then 6 straight, at least in my opinion and I repeat....I'm not disgruntled, just being realistic about some of the issues that need to be addressed with working those hours!
With all the grant money the feds were giving away after 09/11 why didn't we get new computers, eqipment, etc. Who the hell do we have writing grants around here? There is tons of free money the G is willing to part with but they don't come to you with it. How bout some of these HQ pencil pushers doing some research? The equipment would flood in. And by the way. The military will give you their used M-16's for FREE if you ask. They will make them semi-auto (AR-15)for police carry in an urban environment. What does that cost? Training and ammo.
"Can someone ask why it takes 1.5-3 years to get hired in Chicago, when NYPD and LAPD can hire people in as little as 4 months, with the average time being around 10 months? ------------------NYPD has over 20,000 officers .. with both NYPD and LAPD the turnover is large.. BAD Moral with officers leaving to work nearby communities that pay better and don't shit on their P.O.s as much.We don't have that many people quiting here in Chicago. As bad as the moral is and as much as coppers cry about FOP Lodge#7 being a "non-union-fraternity only outfit" we have pretty decent pay and benefits. Our guys INCLUDING MYSELF are just quiting doing any aggressive police work and collecting a paycheck and we will keep filing grievances when we are fucked with by the incompetent merit bosses.
Why are you so worry about the MERIT selection..... OH I see, it's because you are a DUMB*SS and cannot do well on the test!!!AND let me break some news to some of you.... TIME on the JOB does not always mean that you have done your fair share of HARD work. Don't expect to get promoted based on TIME on JOByou actually have to have a work history......OH boy I just woke up some dogs on this one.......... get busy!
10:54 PMThe NYPD has 34,500 sworn officers, not just 20,000. Will you please stop misspelling MORALE?Examples: CPD moralE is poor.Robbers and rapists have no moral values.
all of these pro j-fed posts popping up. Is j-fed telling all the exempts to post a positive spin to his tenure as supe(just like getting a event #) so they can look good. J-fed actions speeak loder than words you are still not shaking PO's hands are you a germ-a-phobe?
ten hour or twelve hr days is too long. how about working five and off three. I work 8 in the hood and 2 or 4 extra hrs in that hell hole would be worst than anything else. it all evens out. I rather spend less time in hell than more time in it. Im not disgruntled.
Over two hundred posts when a cop gets locked up. And under 50 concerning J Feds meeting with P O's. Fuckin pathetic.
Memo to 5/21/2008 10:40:00 PM1. The money given to the City is covered under the UASI grant. 2. The UASI grant is managed by the Bureau of Strategic Deployment.3. ALl grant applications will be submitted once Deputy Shields completes all the pictures in his UASI coloring book without going outside the lines.4. We anticpate Deputy Shields to complete this task sometime in mid June of 2009. 5. If he submits his book with the same mistakes he has made on his 4 previous attempts the Grant conditions will not be met. At this point the funds will go directly to the Mayors Office for repairs on his neighbors house in Michigan and an extra beef sandwich for Sam Roti. That's All.

Unless we ask steven speilberg. Is it his actions or lack of action by PO's on the street? Despite his spin, no arrests and gangs take over. I pray for the first hot weekend.
Curious to know if anyone asked the Supt what was the criterea for picking the last class of merit.5/20/2008 09:53:00 PMWhy don't you ask him tough guy?
J fed is flat out lying if he is reporting that there are NEW vehicles in the pipeline for this year. The Ford order was cancelled and the contract for wagons was allowed to expire. The city does not have a current contract to purchase Tahoes on file. Don't expect to see any NEW vehicles anytime in the near future.
10 or 12 hours days to long?I did a year of the 10 hour days and because of that schedule I had something like 55 days off a year more!! You get your weekends every 5th week and its 3 four day weekends. It was great. You do 5 on and 3 off four times then 4 on and 4 off three times. Maybe hours wise it evens out however going there 50 or so less days is well worth it. Don't knock it unless you tried it.
Weis = Exempt PPO with a contract
The only change we have seen on this department is PO's getting fired and treated worse then shitheads. Fuck Weis. Until there is change that helps us I will let the Westside shitheads do what they want! -Phil Clines Mustache
Exempt PPO wants us to work harder!!! HAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHAHA!!!!!!FUCK YOU!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
I don't want 10-12 hour days. There has to be a way to do a 5 day work week 8 hour days, but they just don't WANT to do it.
I always wondered what happened to Corky from "Life Goes On". Thank God for America, that the disabled can make 300K +.
Morale vs. MoralsThe only thing lower than our morale is our morals.
Aunt Bea was taking notes...yeah, of the names of coppers who are causing trouble at these meetings, look for dumps in the near future....
