Another Festival Homicide?

But it happened outside the fest boundaries, so there's nothing to worry about.

Another of Chicago's premier outdoor events -- Venetian Night. Another large crowd of people downtown.

A 3-on-3 fight turns into a 3-on-1 beating in which the victim is thrown onto the CTA rails, later dying of his injuries at an area hospital.

Nope. NO ONE is getting the picture. Again we say: Bring on the Olympics! Chalkie is waiting!

Chalkie was downtown, there was a large crowd around him yelling "Chalkie!! Chalkie! Overhere!! Were such big fans of yours and have been for a long time, would you sign this for me?" I waited in line for 2 hours for his autograph......... HE's getting big around the city, and i hope my autograph is worth some money one day.

SCC,

you big dummy. It was an accident. The victim tripped and fell repeatedly and then purely by accident fell on the EL tracks.

It isn't a homicide until the UnFrozen Caveman Superintendent says it is.

When did this happen? I didn't hear anything. Oh wait...75% of the detail did not have radios. That's right I didn't have one. Maybe that's important. I guess Keating felt that we didn't need radios for a large crowd event. I hope the terrorists don't know that we were working without radios. I mean that would be very embarrassing to the department if something happened.
Oh wait that's ok, because Keating was at OEMC looking at the video from the cameras so if he saw something he could just call it out to the coppers working the detail, but wait a minute, how could he tell us that something was happening, we didn't have radios.
Is it silly for me to think that having a radio is a crucial piece of equipment for a police officer to have, or am I just a whining PPO?

Dear Rev. Sen. James Meeks:

On behalf of New Trier Township High School (NTTHS) and the taxpayers of Winnetka, Kenilworth and Glencoe, we are elated to hear that you will be enhancing diversity by busing hundreds of deprived inner-city youth to enroll at NTTHS. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

While we realize that our academic standards will exponentially decline, we always wanted to win the state basketball championship. Go Trevians!

See you after Labor Day!

Academically yours,

Principal, New Trier Township High School

P.S.: Pass on our warmest regards to CPD Sgt. John Clifford when you see him Sunday at your House of Hope. Please give him an old-fashioned North Shore hug.

venture out into the burbs and listen to some guy named GEOFF bitch about his stocks plummenting and how the steam on his espresso did not froth properly. Hmm.

But how about we all pitch in our $ and start opening new businesses catering to the city ghetto? How about a pimped out funeral home for the bangers? How about retail stores that only open after 3pm and stay open until 5am for the LINK people since they sleep in all day? WE could be raking in all the profits. Anyone in???

Is the next ax to fall is our pension? The city wants to get away from Defined Benefit plans (a pension) to a Defined Contribution plan (a 401K). I have two years on the job and I hope that I will be grandfathered in with a pension.

7/28/2008 12:31:00 PM

This is a bad deal for the futurs police but the people on the job shouldbe fine. The city is trying to go to 401(k) plans for future police.The FOP better negotiate a pension bump or steep pay increase to give this up. 401(k)'s are not bad if you contribute as much as you can and manage it properly, but they still arent as good as a definened pension. I dont think the FLOP is going to be able to keep the city from going to a 410k plan but for god's sake get us 80% or a big raise. Maybe a buyout for some of the older officers

[ Hic-Up, Burp, Fart - I have to change these Depends underwear soon! ]

Second, I was giving a few TV interviews to such shows as "Ripley's believe it or not" and "Real Mysteries" regarding the "Find The Tan Lines On Capt. Jimbo Spratte" contest. I guess Henry's Big and Tall Stores are now interested in carrying Speedo swimwear in waist sizes 48-64, for the large well built men.

[ Hic-Up, Burp, Fart - I have to change these Depends underwear soon! ]

The we had a little problem at TR's Pub. Nothing major mind you but still something I had to address. Somebody had placed superglue on the toilet seat right before I used it. I tell you, those firemen are great. Got me off it in just a few minutes with very little skin loss. I owe them a drink. Well I owe a lot of people drinks since I never buy any.
[ Hic-Up, Burp, Fart - I have to change these Depends underwear soon! ]

Wrong about "cruiser" in New York City. The NYPD refers to our marked squad cars as RMPs (Radio Motor Patrols).

What you guys call an ambulance, we simply call a "bus" in radio transmissions. ("Central, give us a bus for a man shot at...")

Unlike the CPD and LAPD, we don't have SWAT. Our guys are assigned to Emergency Service Unit (ESU) trucks throughout all boroughs.

Sounds like your G-man should have stayed in Philly.

Dear Rev. Sen. James Meeks:

On behalf of New Trier Township High School (NTTHS) and the taxpayers of Winnetka, Kenilworth and Glencoe, we are elated to hear that you will be enhancing diversity by busing hundreds of deprived inner-city youth to enroll at NTTHS. A mind is a terrible thing to waste.

While we realize that our academic standards will exponentially decline, we always wanted to win the state basketball championship. Go Trevians!

See you after Labor Day!

Academically yours,

Principal, New Trier Township High School

P.S.: Pass on our warmest regards to CPD Sgt. John Clifford when you see him Sunday at your House of Hope. Please give him an old-fashioned North Shore hug.

Proof That They Weren't Chinese

There's been a lot of trash-talking on the blog today.

1. Someone wants our Lts. to call their Chinamen.

2. A false theory was proffered that the three men involved in the beating were of Chinese origin.

--
Does anyone know, or has the media disclosed the race(s) of the offender and/or victim yet? Just curious.

According to the Tribune:
Clint Johnson, 29, and Martell Johnson, 21, who are brothers, and Maurice Evans, 23, all of the 2300 block of West Warren Boulevard, were each charged with one count of first-degree murder, police said.

Martell? 2300 W Warren? Probably Chinese.

Bullshit. Leaders lead, and followers follow.
If you think that these so called supervisors are such a joke then push past them and start taking control of a situation. Fuckin' quit whining and fuckin' do some fuckin' leading by example.
I'll lay dimes to fuckin' dollars that the so called supervisors will be extremely relieved at not having to the ones to make the decisions that you can steamroll all over them. If they do bitch, then man up and take the few days for insubordination. I'll bet that your fellow P.O.s will see you in an entirely different light.

Yes, you with SENIORITY, I'll give you a legitimate answer.. It turns out they could use a few people who actually want to earn some of that money while there. I know, I'm a company suck-hole or whatever. I've seen coppers out there with stars and bars on their sleeves doing shit that a 2 month PPO would'nt do. How about letting some young guys pick up a day? Use your seniority to pick the day you want and let the 11-15 year po's work their Friday/Saturday? How's that for a legitimate reason?

For about the past 7-8 years, I've been hitting as many of the suburban summer fests as I can. Rarely a problem. Good musical entertainment. And a near 0 shitheads. Even in Homewood. Why? Mainly because 1) They charge admission either at the entrance which is fenced off or by charging $5 for a wrist band to purchase liquor; 2) The musical lineups don't include rap, hipity-hop, etc.; and 3) The police at these suburban fests don't take shit from any asshole no matter what race. These villages, apparently, want people to enjoy themselves without disturbances. They allow their officers to have free rein in keeping the undesireables out. The best was at Homewood Days. Heartsfield, a country rock band was playing and the M/1 and F/1 youts were walking through the crowd and the looks on their faces waspriceless. "What are those strange things that are hanging from the band members shoulders? What is that guy hitting with those sticks?" They're called musical instruments. Sorry. No one scratching a turntable at this show dude.

Seniority is one of the very few things that no one can take from us (yet). By your logic, you'd probably want some copper to forfeit his 8A or 13B furlo segment because you feel that you've earned 2 or 3 weeks of Christmas/Holiday off with 3years on the job. Pay your fuckin' dues, Sally. Go work security at the Park District, Extreme Fitness, wherever, until you have enough time on to have actually earned a day or two at special. Until your clout gets you the hook-up to merit sergeant or merit detective, keep plugging away for $20/hour somewhere far away from my seniority-ladden ass while I'm at Cabrini or one of the airports.

A union guy from the fire department told me that there is a referendum on the ballot this year for a Illinois constitutional convention. Its on the ballot every 20 years. In '88 it was voted down.In '68 it was approved and the constitution was rewritten.
What this means is, if the people vote for the constitutional convention, the Illinois state constitution gets rewritten. Our pensions are protected by the State constitution, they could then be in jeopardy.

REGARDING ONE DAY A MONTH AT CHA SPECIAL...

Spoke to DiMaria at 1030 am today. He told me that I was the first person to inquire about it, and that "he'd look into it". He was suspicious when he was made aware that the 018th District will now be responsible for the CHA special scheduling. Can you smell a rat??? I can. More older guys who are gonna get hit in the pocket book better start calling FLOP and demanding some kind of answers. I will call back on a daily basis until I hear something of substance for an answer. And I will be the first to file a grievance should it be discovered that there are shenanigans of any kind involved with the assignment of days. Make the call, guys. Let's hear what kind of bullshit they're (FLOP) gonna try and feed us on this one.

Geez!! Talk about whiners. You old timers get 3-4 days OT between CHA or Ohare/Midway. Some even more with the school shit. I hope to GOD when I have 25-30 years on the job, I don't have to work (or should I say NEED to work) OT or side jobs. Maybe you should have planned better or kept your dick in you pants and not have a child when you were 50. I mean come on 2 days between CHA or Ohare/Midway should be enough for everybody.

Wah, Wah, I can't schedule special every day Im off and then cancel when I my pussy hurts so nobody can else can work. Then when I feel like going to work I go on the blog and bitch about having to stay in the building all night(gasp). Imagine that they are paying me $500.00 and they want me to just stand. Wah Wah why can't I watch movie in a po po car. ATTENTION WORLD: "I have been employed for 15, 20, 30yrs(fill in the appropiate #) Im special." Just like Joe tell me he works, big fucking deal. 25yrs of beeing a cocksucker and I should be impressed.
