Who's To Blame? (3 Guesses)

Wait a minute. This isn't the officer's first run-in with pending time? This isn't the officer's second run-in with being on the wrong end of a bottle? This isn't even his third major rule violation?

Why, there ought to be a system in place to catch these potential problem officers, so as to save them from themselves and save the Department embarrassment. Something to address the Concerns of Personnel.

What? There is such a system?

Well, then there ought to be a disciplinary process that punishes these transgressions and makes sure they never happen again, especially under the guise of being a cop the third or fourth time around. Some sort of Board for the Police.

What? There is such a process?

But then how did this officer fall through the cracks? How did he time and time again game the system?

Anyone from the Lame-Stream Media want to take a guess? The real police already know the answer - its been eroding the Department morale for their entire careers. Real cops aren't the problem and it isn't cops who are backing the subversion of the Rules.

CLOUT!

Take the damn CLOUT out of this fucked-up city and we just might have a professional police department of which we can all be proud. Promotions, assignments, disciplinary matters, ad infinitum. CLOUT, CLOUT and even more CLOUT!

There are actually stupid, shameless assholes that will actually attempt to defend CLOUT!
It is IMPOSSIBLE to justify.

"MERIT" is CLOUT. Favoritism, bribery, nepotism and political corruption is CLOUT!

The system and "the Chicago Way" are rotten to the core.

If the media and public tolerates it, give them the police force that they deserve. Give them shit.

SCC is the judge jury and executioner now. We havn't even heard his side of the story. The Niles Police found Callahan passed out in bushes. It could be that he was attacked by this AARP member so brutally that he barely escaped and ran to unconsciusness. Learn the facts before spouting off. Jerry wouldn't hurt a fy. A puppy maybe but not a fly!

I am so glad the idiot liberal press did not capitalize on my gaffe the other day, saying that I had been to 57 states. When I am elected Califate of the Islamic States of America, I will visit every one of the 57 Islamic nations in order to form a more perfect union with them. The Organization of Islamic Conference will replace the United Nations.

Indeed, America will be the 58th Islamic state as long as my followers continue their starry-eyed worship of me and continue to ignore all the warning signs.

and taverns or bars.

Abbate, the heroes of Jefferson Tap led by Crybaby Powers, the young cop out in Forest Park(?) and Callahan were all out drinking and acting stupid.

If you need help get it. The department pays for it. If you are bored and wealthy enough to blow your money in taverns frequently why not take a college class or three. The department will pay for that too and rumor has it that the male to female ratio in such classes is favorable to the ugly males among us.

Oh well on to the next stupid incident. With 13,000+ sworn members there will always be incidents happening. I just hope the frequency decreases and the punishment for such stupidity increases.

Whoever is defending this guy is insane. Even if he was antagonized by the 60 year old man, it was a 60 year old man and a woman. Walk away, call a cop, anything but start a fight or hit someone in a restaurant. Plus, he was obviously so drunk he passed out a short distance away. If he didn't do anything wrong, he should have stuck around, isn't that what we tell the azzholz we lock up? This guy didn't just hurt the people in the restaurant, he hurt every working cop who's job just got harder. The only one to blame is him. Not J-Fed, not the board. He is responsible for his actions.

"CLOUT!"

I absolutely agree with the first poster and others. Because of Chicago's overt and covert political patronage and corruption, Shakman notwithstanding, the CLOUT CANCER has metastasized throughout the body of local government.

Many, perhaps most of the electorate are apathetic damn fools while the others are the very beneficiaries of clout.

On the outside, with the flower planters, wrought iron fences and dreams of Olympics 2016, the City may appear healthy and vibrant. Inside, under Daley's regime, the CLOUT cancer has finally hit critical mass.

And aside from occasionally exposing incidents of relatively petty municipal corruption, the "vigilant" media watchdogs are in bed with this mayor.

Supreme Emperor Daley has no clothes!

Meanwhile, Chicago, Crook County and Illinois have no recall referendum provisions on the books.

U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald cannot walk on water. The Sorich conviction alone speaks volumes about the political Sodom and Gomorrah in which we work and live.

There is no excuse for stupidity. Mistakes YES, Stupidity NO. He is his own worst enemy. Getting drunk, which I will bet for sure that he was, is a decision or choice, not a mistake.

Once again, we all are going to pay the price for the idiocy of a few, or in this case, one.

This is why innocent and unconnected PO's are stripped,fired and suspended without recourse.

This is the two-tier disciplinary system that results in only "CLOUTLESS" cops getting railroaded for BS allegations.

I have seen this occur so often that it makes me sick.

The whole disciplinary system is rotten with corruption. The Police Board is a joke,nothing more than a smoke and mirrors charade to verify your clout. If you have it,no problems,no matter what you did.

The poor saps without clout or any disciplinary history are fired or suspended on the most baseless allegations to make the system look legitimate.

I have a feeling that this BS might come to a screeching halt,even in this corrupt town.

CLOUT!

Take the damn CLOUT out of this fucked-up city and we just might have a professional police department of which we can all be proud. Promotions, assignments, disciplinary matters, ad infinitum. CLOUT, CLOUT and even more CLOUT!

There are actually stupid, shameless assholes that will actually attempt to defend CLOUT!
It is IMPOSSIBLE to justify.

"MERIT" is CLOUT. Favoritism, bribery, nepotism and political corruption is CLOUT!

The system and "the Chicago Way" are rotten to the core.

If the media and public tolerates it, give them the police force that they deserve. Give them shit.

I hate to disagree, but theres only one person to really blame: jagoff PO. He's responsible for his own actions, plain and simple. The 'system' didnt 'fail' him, it failed the rest of us for having to be associated with this moron. Should he be gainfully employed by the department after his numerous fuckups? No. Did the almighty phone call keep him on the job? Absolutely, buy you still can't blame anyone for this most recent incident other than the idiot himself, in my opinion.

You obviously have never met this guy. There is not one lie, exxageration, or misspoken word about this guy on this blog. This guy is a drunken asshole from the word go. While you are busy trying to stick up for him, FYI, he would smack you in the head with his blackjack, leave you bloody and unconscious, and then go to the bar and brag about how he "opened up your dome".All of this while having a full glass of Jameson. I have known him since he was in 024, but, he is the type of person that if I saw him walking down the street, I would cross the street to avoid him and his nonsense. I wasn't there in Niles, but, I have seen him in action before and there is a slight possibility that this happened as Jerry tells it. I'd have to believe that this victim had made eye contact with Jerry by accident and that Jerry didn't like this guy looking in his direction. Ohh...his mugshot was on the news dickhead, not here. Now go have a double Jameson with Jerry and then FUCK YOURSELF !!!!!

It is hard to imagine that J-Fraud, who is so Cozzi with the Feds, doesn't know that the entire disciplinary system has been subverted by his own Exempts.

How can an Officer with 50 CR numbers, 25 of them for theft, still be working in a specialized unit with little supervision and no corrective action taken? E.g. SOS?

When does looking the other way become criminal obstruction of justice or facilitation of a criminal conspiracy???

Off topic but typical of this City, I just read where the City of Chicago is suing eBay and StubHub for uncollected amusement tax on tickets for events in Chicago where no tax was ever paid to the City.

This could amount to millions of dollars, they give and example of one Rolling Stone ticket that sold for $1500, not unusual today. The City of Chicago wants 8% of that!

I do hope that eBay and StubHub prevail and stick it up the City's ass. I make every effort to avoid any and all taxes as much as I can. Fuck Chicago and fuck Crook County and especially fuck the State of Illinois.

May Daley and Stroger and Blagoejovich all get indicted and rot in prison. Soon.

COMPLETELY OFF TOPIC:

CHANNEL 7 JUST COVERED A PROTEST AT DEPAUL UNIVERSITY. IT SEEMS THAT PEOPLE WERE PROTESTING THE FACT THAT A STUDENT GROUP INVITED A CO-FOUNDER OF THE MINUTEMEN GROUP TO GIVE A SPEECH TO A STUDENT GROUP.

I GOT TO SEE LOTS OF VIDEO OF PEOPLE SCREAMING THAT THE MINUTEMEN ARE THE NEW KKK, THEY ARE RACIST, BLAH, BLAH, BLAH...

I ALSO LEARNED THAT AFTER THE SPEECH, A DEPAUL OFFICIAL GAVE A COUNTER SPEECH ATTACKING THE MINUTEMEN'S AGENDA.

OKAY. AS USUAL, COLLEGE CAMPUSES WHICH ARE SUPPOSED TO ENCOURAGE DEBATE AND THOUGHT ARE TRYING TO ATTACK DEBATE AND SPEECH WHEN IT'S CONTRARY TO THE LIBERAL/LEFTIST AGENDA. FREE SPEECH IS WHAT COLLEGE IS ALL ABOUT AS LONG AS IT'S NOT CONSERVATIVE FREE SPEECH. HOW MANY OTHER GROUPS HAVE HAD GUEST SPEAKERS WHICH LED TO ADMIINSTRATORS GIVING REPLY SPEECHES? NOT MANY I'M SURE.

SO THESE ROUSTABOUTS THROW SLURS AROUND AND TERM THE MINUTEMEN RACIST BECAUSE IT DISTRACTS PEOPLE FROM THE REAL ISSUE OF SECURING OUR BORDERS. OF COURSE, THE MEDIA LOVES SHIT LIKE THIS AND GOES OUT ITS WAY TO GIVE THESE MORONS A FORUM.

PARENTS...TAKE A GOOD LOOK AT WHAT UNIVERSITIES YOU ARE SPENDING YOUR LIFE'S SAVINGS ON TO PAY FOR YOUR CHILD'S EDUCATION. MANY OF THESE UNIVERSITIES ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR THE PROMOTION OF LEFTIST POLICIES THAT HAVE BEGUN TO ERODE THE AMERICAN WAY OF LIFE. IF IT WERE UP TO THE LIBERALS, HARD WORK WOULD BE DISCOURAGED WHILE WE SHIFT TO A SOCIALIST REPUBLIC. DON'T LET YOUR CHILDREN FALL PREY TO THESE HOOLIGANS!

I WAS YOUNG AND STUPID ONCE. I VOTED FOR BILL CLINTON FOR HIS FIRST TERM. THEN I GOT A REAL JOB WITH A REAL PAYCHECK AND AS I GOT OLDER I GOT REAL RESPONSIBILITES. I'VE NEVER VOTED FOR A DEMOCRAT SINCE. MY POINT? VOTING FOR CLINTON WAS BAD ENOUGH BUT I NEVER GOT TO THE POINT OF PROTESTING AND TRYING TO QUELL THE FREE SPEECH RIGHTS OF SOMEONE WHO HAD A DIFFFERENT POINT OF VIEW. THAT IS EXACTLY WHAT THESE LEFTIST PROFESSORS AND SCHOOL ADMINISTRATORS ARE DOING ON OUR COLLEGE CAMPUSES TODAY!

FINALLY, ISN'T IT JUST INCREDIBLE THAT ILLEGAL ALIENS WHO ARE HERE ILLEGALLY ARE TRYING TO QUELL THE FREE SPEECH RIGHTS OF AMERICANS?!!!

WHAT THE FUCK IS GOING ON HERE?!!!

IT'S TIME FOR THE FEDS TO CLAMP DOWN ON THIS SHIT. I WANT TO SEE MASS DEPORTATIONS AND I WANT TO SEE THEM NOW!!! AMERICA IS THE LAND OF OPPORTUNITY AND WE HAVE ALWAYS HAD A ROADMAP TO CITIZENSHIP. FOLLOW OUR LAWS AND YOU'LL DO JUST FINE. SNEAK ACROSS OUR BORDERS AND YOU SHOULD BE LOCKED UP.

And do you want to know the kicker? Look up Peter Karl's production company, Peter Karl Productions.

It is NOT located in the city of Chicago. You and I have to be located in the city, but not old Pete. He's in Elmwood Park, within spitting distance of the city, but what the hell?

You would think that the least this prick could do is locate the production company within the city of Chicago, and its the production company that was set up to service the city of Chicago! He syphons money from the city and doesn't have to pay anything back. Legally, at least!

It is a smart business move to go where you don't have to pay head tax, etcetera, but it sends the wrong message. I am sure we can find a production company located within the city limits that would do as good or even better than old Peter, but that is not how the city that works, works!

Is there an investigative reporter out there with the balls to investigate this story? Investigate Peter Karl, the investigative reporter! I seem to recall something about glass houses! It would be a CAPS success story entitled, Doing Business With The City of Chicago!

You should all look in the mirror! Go ahead, judge the guy and spread more shit about him. Dont you think he feels like shit enough. Its all over the news.

"Off topic but important--

Anybody notice (not that the mainstream press would say anything bad about the "second coming"), but Barack Obama was campaigning in Oregon and he said that the had campaigned in "all 57 states"?

An innocent gaffe? Did he flunk 6th grade Civics?

There is an group called the Organization of Islamic Conference. They have 57 member states. Their goal is to promote Islamic States all over the world. I guess Barack wants to make us the 58th."

Really like who? Fuck you, you have obviously never have been a worker. 99% of the guysat SOS were hard workers that locked up criminals everyday. And with that comes bullshit CRS and bullshit lawsuits. The likes of which most were unfounded and the lawsuits dismissed. Thanks for playing though.

Return of the mad shitter exclaims..........................
Many P.O.'s in the city of chicago work hard everday, putting away the WORST of criminals (Murderers, sexual offenders), and never compile the outrageous amount of C.R. numbers, and lawsuits that those S.O.S. fools did. Contrary to public opinion, WORKERS DO NOT HAVE TO COMPILE CR NUMBERS AND LAWSUITS!!! Know how to do your job, study your G.O.'s, and follow the letter of the law. S.O.S. had many stupid, "ass kicking" officers, and that is why they are in trouble today. All of us will get a stupid C.R., or a bogus lawsuit in our career, but those of you who believe that "workers" are going to get a lot of C.R. numbers, are just plain stupid, and carry most of what's left of yor brains, in your bowels.

While we are on a roll, lets address some other common fallacies associated with policework.

"Women shouldn't be the police"

Some of the best detectives I know are women. They have a natural talent for sniffing out our(men) bullshit!

The "Don't snitch" street policy prevents police from gaining info to solve murders/shootings.

Some people in the street LOVE to talk about what they know about the hood. If approached in the right way(respectfully), you would be surprised how much info they will give you.

"Merit is clout"
There are men and women on this job who have EXCELLENT leadership potential, but will never become supervisors, because the testing process is used to eliminate those who do not have the "company mentality". Merit is the opportunity few of them have to be promoted based on their perfomance as an officer. REAL CLOUT is gained by being at the right place, at the right time, and witnessing something that would place a "powerful person" in HOT WATER! When a corrupt "boss" knows that they can trust you, they will take care of you, and any family you have on the department. When "clout" leaves the job, he makes sure that his son, "clout Jr", and makes sure he takes care of any future generations of your family. Clout is also passed down from generation to generation.

Ok, I will report to duty 1 half hour early tomorrow to submit my FTO slip. Please forward all the names of people with excessive CR's, and have them fill out their own daily observation reports. I would like to take my 4,000 hours on the end of my career. Thanks J-Fiction!!!!

This Site used to be a first class place where some good information was posted, but boy has it changed, it has become a spot where police officers can hide behind thier keyboard and bash another cop, whether its true or not, we as cops tend to believe anything that is posted as being the gospel. It just seems that most posting are petty and maybe have just a small amount of truth to it. Most are posted thru jelousness, so what if someone got a little boost from a friend to get into a unit, this doesn't make that guy a bad cop, I have many years on the job and have been victimized on this blog by someone who has posted pure untrue things about me, but has no BALLS to approach me and tell me why he is upset at me, he is a pure coward with a pussy ass mean streak made up of yellow blood running thru his veins, He knows who he is and now keeps away. Please lets clean this blog up and leave it to profeesional type post, other folks other then cops read this and makes us look bad. God bless you all.

It's actually called "supporters", but I don't expect you to know that.
We all have the ability to sheild ourselves behind this blog, and be whoever we like to be.
There are a few observations I could make from your narrow-minded response, though.

1. Little, or no education.

2. Not well traveled, or read.

3. Never held a position of leadership.

4. Watches CNN programs to get informed.

5. "Follower" of Rush Limbaugh, or some other idiot talk show host.

It's ok to think for yourself sometimes, people. Just because you hear someone spew their stupid, racist ideology through the media, doesn't mean that you have to subscribe to it. I can imagine the guy who wrote his opinion of my statement, is the same guy that Motherfucks everyone out on the street. A lot of what my fellow comrades have written, shows how just how much of separists we, as a nation, have become. It's a new day and age, people. Time to allow your minds to grow beyond your father's thinking. Just like this dept isn't your daddy's anymore; this country is no longer your great-grandad's either.
Lose your sense of entitlement, please.

Sorry off topic but had to comment,

After reading the transfer order and noticing all of the TRU people on the order, I wonder if these people felt good knowing that after all the pimpy one bag, DOPW, SUB, CTTSSL arrests they made for the bosses didn’t mean a g-damm thing to them. Was it really worth it? I hope this was a valuable learning experience that no matter how hard you work, how smart you are, or awards on your chest doesn’t mean a friggin thing and it all boils down to: CLOUT or the heavier phone call.

5/19/2008 12:31:00 PM

Why comment? Nobody gives a fuck about your opinion especially the people dumped. Take your self-righteous bullshit and stick it up your ass. Your don't know shit about those coppers, so don't make assumptions about their work. Contrary to your own convoluted self image, you are not the worlds smartest copper, your just a jag-off.

PS You can save the I have xx years on the job shit, or the I have seen these guys arrests bullshit. You don't know them or me, so go fuck yourself.

If you're going to post on this site at least demonstrate that you have an inkling of presidential elections. Sen. Obama was probably referring to U.S. territories that vote in presidential elections but are not states. For example, Guam;Puerto Rico; American Samoa;U.S. Virgin Islands and any other territory claimed by the United States. You don't even know about your own government.
