Blago Clarification

Seems all those clips running on the news of the big Chinook troop transport helicopters landing during troop exercises unnerved the governor. This clarification was issued:
  • As mentioned at today’s press conference, Gov. Rod Blagojevich said it was “highly unlikely” that the Illinois National Guard would be sent out to help the Chicago police. The more likely scenario involves the Illinois State Police. The Governor is meeting with law enforcement officials later today to look at options on how the state can help Mayor Daley with more personnel.

    The National Guard will only be attending the meeting today for informational purposes.

    The only way the National Guard would be involved, if they are involved, is with the use of tactical helicopters that are currently used in narcotic operations. No National Guard troops are being considered.
Given that the State is short 500 troopers from barely a few years ago, we don't see ISP coming in to the rescue. That isn't a slam at ISP, it's just that operationally, even sending 200 troopers to Chicago wouldn't do a thing except inconvenience 200 troopers.

On a lighter note, Michelle Malkin and her readers are having a field day with Blago's statements:
  • Gov, offering troopers to help the local police/security forces….??? Wouldn’t that constitute a “Surge”??? Just sayin’…….LOL
  • Yes, and we all know a “surge” will just make things worse.
  • You know, the gun-toting, Bible-carrying folks in the rest of Illinois seem to get along just fine. Maybe someday though those same folks in the rest of the state will start paying attention to elections rather than continuing to elect such idiots as the governor, Durbin, Obama, etc.
  • …Chicago Public Schools officials say more than two dozen students have been killed by gunfire since last September. Are they talking about Chicago or Kabul?
  • Chicago = Anbar Province (About 18 months ago that is..Today’s Anbar Province is safer than Chicago)
Welcome Olympic Committee! Our city can screw up a one-million-person event that ran smoothly for the previous 20 years. We're sure we're ready for the Olympics. Just take this suitcase full of dollars, euros and gold.

NEWS FLASH

USA Patrick Fitzgerald just held a press conference on the 17 monthlong federal civil rights investigation conducted at the Cook County Jail.


It seems that Sheriff's Correctional Officers are up to 40%+ undermanned at the jail. Patrick Fitzgerald even stated that Chicago/Cook County pays the highest taxes in the nation,where is the money going????

He stated that something is wrong. It seems that the money and manpower issues are popping up everywhere. There is MUCH MORE to come.

The ISP is seriously undermanned too,where are the troopers at? There is no way that they can deploy ISP Troopers to the city,they don't have them to spare.

They can't use the Illinois National Guard either,most are on overseas deployment in Iraq,Afghanistan,Gitmo,the Horn of Africa,etcetra. God Forbid something serious occurs in Chicago,we will hurt badly.

SCC, it would only be a matter of time before someone pointed out to the governor that 3000 Illinois national guard troops are scheduled to go to Afghanistan int he fall, and there are not many not going who would be appropriate for the streets of Chicago.

It literally would have been a matter of hours until someone pointed out to the "commander in chief" of the Illinois National Guard that the bulk of his ready forces have been appropriated for war.

God bless all who are going.

sorry off topic / from the lieutenant's website:

OFFICERS’ SAFETY

With the recent killing of Officer Francis it might be time for all of us to do a little equipment check. Everyone should be wearing a Level 3 Safety holster. This requires 3 separate actions to remove the gun from the holster. If you do not have one, get one NOW. Once you get the holster you need to leave the gun in it for a few days to allow it to stretch. Then you need to practice drawing the gun from the holster until you become proficient in performing the three functions.

QUESTION:

Does the order SAY we all need a "Level 3" holster?
Isn't the department supposed to purchase the first issue?

Does anyone know what kind of holster officer Francis had?

SCC,
Sorry, but I didn't know where to post this so I'll leave it up to you if you want to post it at all or just make a blog about it yourselves. Please inform your readers of the Sun Times article in today's paper regarding today's prices of everything going "through the roof". "Nationally, overall prices rose 5%...". We need to stand firm when it comes time for a new contract and not settle for the same old 3% raises. As the article on pg 4 indicates, prices have risen in the last year alone: medical care-4.9%, housing-4%,eggs-39%,apples-20%, bananas-23%, bread 15%, tomatoes 20% coffee 8%, milk 6% and of course GAS 32%. We cannot let our union bargain for such measley raises as 3% when everything has risen well over that.

REGARDING THIS PAST POST THAT WAS BEING SENT AROUND IN LATE JUNE:
:
For all of you that live on 2211's Bt I sure hope that before you went to bed tonight you made sure that your homes, families, vehicles and other properties were secured. This is
important because there are no police officers patrolling your
neighborhood
tonight. The 4th police district was busy tonight, as it always is,
with criminals acting out and shooting each other. So guess what? They pulled Beat 2211, Beat 2234, Beat 2272, Beat 2206A and Beat 2263B from their
assigned district (yours!) and sent them to answer calls and protect The citizens in the area of 2500 East 79th Street...........................
MANY OF US WHO LIVE OUT HERE WE FORWARDED THIS TO ALD. RUGAI, AND WE DID GET A RESPONSE, AS SHE ASKED THE SUPT. WHY?...HERE'S WHAT THE RESPONSE WAS:

As promised, below is the reponse I received from the Superintendent's
office regarding the incident of June 29th. I will continue to monitor
and hold them to their promise.
Alderman Ginger Rugai

Dear Alderman Rugai,

Your concerns that police resources dedicated to the 22nd District are
being sent out of the District were referred to me by Superintendent
Jody P. Weis for investigation and follow up.

I want to reassure you and your constituents that we do not utilize
resources that are dedicated to an individual district unless there is
an emergency or an overriding need. The Chicago Police Department from
time to time has had to activate what is called an Emergency Plan. In
these rare occurrences resources are drawn from nearby districts in
order to provide coverage for an emergency incident or to assist
district personnel in answering 911 calls. OEMC has established
protocols that will ensure that no individual police district is left
without adequate resources.

Recently there were two emergency incidents in the 4th District. The
first occurred on 29 June 2008 when the police responded to a shots
fired call at 7808 S. Kingston. Upon arrival, police officers found
three fatal gun shot victims and an unruly crowd. In order to protect
the crime scene and investigate the incident police officers needed to
control the crowd. Additional resources were required and three units
were dispatched from the 22nd District. It was anticipated that the
units assigned from the 22nd District would provide short term
assistance. The dispatcher assigned units that were clear of assignments
at the time that assistance was requested by the 004th District. These
units were dispatched at 00:15 hours and were sent back to the 22nd
District at 02:29 hours, a duration of 2 and ¼ hours. Resources from
the 22nd District that were sent included Beats 2206A, 2211, 2234, and
2272. It should be noted that 2234 was dispatched at 01:18 hours to
relieve Beat 2272. The 22nd District had adequate resources to respond
to emergency calls, and to conduct aggressive patrol. A review of calls
for service reveals that at no time during this 2 and ¼ hours did a
backlog of radio assignments occur within the 22nd District.

In addition, the TRU (Targeted Response Unit) was also deployed to the
4th District on 29 June 2008, and numerous TRU officers responded to the
scene. These units assisted 4th District officers, and then were
dispatched to areas where retaliation was anticipated. TRU's mission is
to conduct aggressive patrol in areas of public violence, and to place a
large force of police officers in a concentrated area in order to curb
future acts of public violence. Their primary function is not to
conduct crime scene protection or crowd control; these functions are
specifically designated to officers assigned to District Law
Enforcement.

The second emergency incident occurred on 01 July 2008 when, again in
the 4th District, there were two major incidents that required
additional police resources from nearby police districts. In these
incidents, which occurred approximately 30 minutes apart, multiple
subjects were shot at two different locations. In both incidents the
offenders were captured, and weapons were recovered. Because the second
shooting was retaliation for the first shooting there was a concern that
more retaliatory shootings may occur. With 4th District officers
already assigned to protect multiple scenes, recover evidence, and
arrest as well as transport offenders, it was necessary to draw
resources from surrounding districts in order to prevent another
shooting. A call was put forth for 22nd District officers to respond,
however none were sent due to a major incident in the 22nd District, the
shooting at the rectory of St. Margaret of Scotland.

These emergency incidents that require more police resources than are
assigned to an individual district d
o occur from time to time. In these
incidents, units from the nearby districts are only utilized for the
duration of the incident. These incidents have occurred in the past in
the 22nd District, and additional police resources have been assigned.
Recently, the staff and students of St. Xavier University were
victimized when threatening messages were found on a bathroom wall. The
Chicago Police Department immediately dedicated additional resources to
the campus area without depleting police coverage in nearby districts.

One cause of concern that many of your constituents shared was the
deployment of Beat 2211. I have reviewed that concern and recognize
that Beat 2211 is one of the largest beats in the city, and it is
located in the southwest portion of the district. In the future, if
there is an emergency plan that requires the use of 22nd District
personnel I am directing supervisory personnel to monitor their
resources and only consent to the dispatch of Beat 2211 at a last
resort.

Again, I want to reassure you and your constituents that police
officers assigned to protect the beats of the 22nd District will not be
assigned out of the District unless an emergency situation arises.

Beatrice V. Cuello
Deputy Superintendent
Bureau of Patrol


I DON'T KNOW IF THAT WILL SATISFY EVERYONE, BUT THANKS TO ALD. RUGAI FOR ATLEAST ADDRESSING THE ISSUE..........

Here is an example of the Public Housing 10 hour day Schedule

7th Period-Day off group 1

Off 4
Work 4
Off 4
Work 4
Off 4
Work 5
Off 3

8th period starts

Work 5
Off 3
Work 5
Off 4
It then starts over from the top

As I understand it the reasons given for not implementing this schedule was the department would need more cars and radios as there is a two hour overlap where manpower is doubled.

With the lack of manpower and cars being down that is not a factor, 99 cars become 10-4 cars for these two hours.

Does this sound safer and more effective to you?
Would this schedule lower your stress level and give you more time for your family?
Would morale go up?
Why is the union not presenting this to the City?
Why is the City not using this to raise morale? Do they really care?
Won’t overtime hours go down? Isn’t that what the city wants?

Our Union says they will not negotiate in the media.
We know the media reads this blog; let’s let them know this is what we want and let the good people of Chicago call their alderman and demand it.

Please indicate you want this schedule to be implemented department wide immediately by posting a +1 in your response.

This coupled with all the BS over the years they have been shoving down our throats about doing police work, how can they expect us to be motivated?
They think the "work slowdown" is bad now just wait til we get screwed on our next contract. Every time our contract expires they take years to give us one and insult us with their offers. It's not just about the money it shows how the city feels about the job we do. Remember the politicians get a cost of living increase built into their slaries and if they need more money they just vote yes to it! Keep it up guys don't give them shit!

Pro-active idea: cancel cable, internet, satellite, phone services...STOP GOING TO BARS...have bbqs, family/friend gatherings, cook at home...light candles, etc...anything that generates monies for the city/state/county.

If each household 'downsized' whatever possible AT LEAST UNTIL THE CONTRACTS NEGOTIATIONS ARE COMPLETED, especially while these politicians have their tunnel vision on olympics, casino, children museum, etc.; we might have a chance for a decent contract.

let's demand that CPD maxes out at 10 years, retire at 20 years with 80% like state police & souther IL police depts...

My vote for the known psychopathic muthafucka of the week goes to Roger Davidson, 20. Police (007) caught him pouring gasoline on a flaming BABY raccoon at 5800 S. Laflin to "see what would happen".

The helpless tiny animal was euthanized. Upon conviction, this cocksucker will hopefully get 2-5 inside.

* * * * * * *

While an editotial in today's Trib cited SCC, they neglected to condemn the CLOUT that has degenerated the CPD into one gigantic clusterfuck. Could it be that the Trib and other local media actually condone endemic clout babies and incompetent political hack bosses corrupting and demoralizing our entire police department? It's the Chicago Way--and the Fourth Estate doesn't give a fuck.

Ergo, oblivious and apathetic Chicagoans will get the police force that they truly deserve.

A vigilant media has a compelling moral and civic obligation to alert the citizenry that Daley's "management" of the CPD is as crooked as a corkscrew.

Excellence, integrity, ethics, honor, courage and (lack of) leadership are now meaningless. Perception is everything.

So sad. Pathetic. And all but hopeless.

Very important-my favorites are the degrees from diploma mills that roll the books/maaterials into the tuition- and accept "deferred" payment from the city--so once the member submits their hard earned A-the city picks up the tab for the whole shebang!!!

Gotta wonder how many grades below an A (which the city only pays 75% for--are ever given)

As a trooper I want to say that it is no big deal if me and a few of my friends were to come "into" the city and arrest a few people. We do it anyway! We write for branch court, traffic court, and we use area 1, area 2, area 4, area 5, and 016 for processing. The cpd guys who work district that border the xways see us all of the time.

Dont forget, almost all of us are from chicago or the close suburban area. We were born and raised here kids. We even have people on our job married to people on ur job. Many of us were police officers before getting on the ISP.

I do find it somewhat insulting that there are a few of you that talk down about us. Those must be the officers who never see us or really know us. We get guns, drugs, stolen cars, aggravated robbers , and yes, we can still chase. We have rifles and shotguns in our cars and we dont need to use the radio to run a name or a plate. Our computers are up every sunday at midnite.

Finally, if the ISP were to "come in" , it's not a take over! It's a few extra guys making sure all the good guys go home safe at the end of the watch and still do the job we love -lock up shitheads. Our department wouldnt force us - all volunteer group to come in. We will always be short. But we will always be there- either city or suburbs, to lend an extra hand, gun, cage car, set of eyes, or just some emotional support to the cause.

While I know it seems like a slap in the face to you, I wouldnt take it that way. You guys are a little busier than us and a litle help could make the summer go by faster with less burnout.

I dont want one of my cpd friends listed on the Officer Down Memorial Page because someone felt extra help from us wasnt needed.

At least ISP has M4s and shotguns in every car...so do most of the burbs. Does anyone remember those ISPERN radios, the ones with the red mic's? Didnt they used to be in the beat cars that bordered the burbs ? Im sure the guys and girls of the burbs woulndnt mind helping out the needy cpd.

***********************************

Multi Jurisdictional Task Force is the answer. I know that there will lots of skepticism and critical comments about this idea...but it's true.

You could take a core group of WORKING CPD coppers and supplement them with cops from the Cook County Sheriff's Police, ISP and some of the suburbs and have area task forces. You wouldn't leave the districts too short and you would have alot of manpower and resources to work with! Area 5 for instance...Add several CCSPD cops, some ISP troopers and a few cops from Oak Park, Berwyn, Elmwood Park, etc. You have a team of coppers to saturate trouble spots.

We, the Police, are the only ones that recognize jurisdictional borders...Criminals don't give a fuck what side of Austin Ave they commit crime on...they look for opportunity and vulnerability.

It worked down south with CPD, CCSPD, Cal City and south east burb cops...Illiana task force, very successful.

Just a thought!

Wow first a federal take over, now a state take over. Chicago is now officialy in a civil war. The three factions will each occupy a designated area of the city. Each of the three War Lords will enforce matial law in their area as they see fit.

The Federal faction will continue to railroad, arrest and prosecute the City and State police.

The State faction will hammer the fine citizens of Chicago with millions of traffic tickets because the are not really the Police and thats all they know how to do.

The Chicago faction will continue to show up for work write case reports and answer 911 calls. Then sit back wand watch the City self distruct, in the hope that the mayor gets sent to prison or strokes out. All while waiting for a fair contract (no a 1% raise is not fair Mr. Mayor)before the city completely implodes.

Wow this kind of soundslike IRAQ.

Most of us are merely a shadow of what we used to be. I'm absolutely useless and I used to be a hard-working ambitious officer. Once you take a good fucking, its hard to give your heart and soul to your job. I can't even tell people I'm the police anymore because I'm not. I'm a useless beat cop who only comes out of hiding to assist other p.o.'s. And then I have to listen to white shirts tell me "This is the greatest job in the world." Maybe its been good to you but plenty of hard-working blue shirts have been used up making you look good for nothing in return. Can anyone spare a couple bucks?

Look a little closer and you will discover many receive B and C. Not everyone is guaranteed an A.

I wonder what the CPD thinks of Chicago's gun ban? As someone who isn't a cop and thus has no right to defend myself (Daley says the Constitution doesn't apply to him), I'd love to see it go away. I'd also like to see concerned, lawful citizens volunteer some of their time to help the police patrol the community. Unfortunately with the sue-happy criminal element, that'll never be a reality, and you guys will go on taking shit forever without just compensation.

Where is all this goddam tax money going? I ask myself that every time I buy something, pay my exorbitant property taxes (I'm in 016, scheduled for another increase soon, surprise surprise), or nearly flatten my tire on a pothole that goes halfway to fucking China.

It's all going to come to a head soon, and it won't be pretty. I hope the gun ban falls before then so us decent citizens can cover our own asses. Hopefully when that happens you guys look out for yourselves, your families and us (meaning the non-criminals who take pride in our neighborhoods and have personal responsibility)..and leave the rest of the city to burn to the ground.

What possible nexus do you think exists between terrorism and writing parking tickets or saving squirrels in 016 or some other northside district?

Do you think it is relevant that some of the instructors, while lacking 20 years pushing a fucking beat car, have decades of experience in the military and in terrorism related MOSs?

I too was at TARA 3rd watch in the recent past and was astounded at the pedigrees that some of the instructors possessed. Actually, I was sort of proud that this organization, CPD, could actually put its hands on a group of young, bright people deliver a highly professional program.

Oh, and if you had been awake when the instructors introduced themselves you would have heard that not all of them went to Jerry lewis or Javier Universities.

Talk to Michelle Engstrom for three minutes and tell me how intelligent she is-emmotionally or otherwise. I can't fault tuition re-imbursement; however, Calumet, Lewis, UIC are fucking jokes. If you don't have a business degree, or IT degree, from Loyola, DePaul, or Northwestern you are virtually unemployable outside of sweeping floors in a 012th District carceneria! Don't get me started......


Companies can give two fucks about what school you went to. You are either capable of doing the job or you arent. Its all the same once you are in the workforce. These schools are all accredited and are held to the same standards. You are probably one of those guys that still go to Rita football games arent you? And argues my high school is better than yours.

I recognize that Michelle Malkin hates both Iraqis and police.

I'll assume that you were just unaware. But please don't go repeating the bullshit and hatred she spouts.


We'll assume that you didn't read what we wrote - those were Malkin's commentators.

We assume you have stats and quotes to show Malkin hates the police and Iraqis - we await your proof.

We'll also assume you're a typical liberal troll who can't hold with the opinion that a minority woman could possibly be conservative in her thoughts.

Asshat.

Neither age, nor seniority are adequate substitutes for ability and specialized training you old bastard!!!

Maybe a couple of gunships, or "Spooky" from the good ol' days? Sorry kids, you wouldn't know what that is, since old guys can't tell you anything.

Maybe you should listen to some of the young kids that have been to war. Anyone who did more than one tour in Vietnam was considered a bad ass. How about the kids today doing three to five tours, some fifteen months long? Try being less bitter and give credit where it's due. They're not all clueless because they aren't from your generation.

One thing I would NOT do is dog the ISP troopers. They are out there riding 10-99 on every watch and their back up isn't just a block away. I give them credit for doing what they do and I appreciate them.

So for the schmucks out there that are talking shit about the troopers, stick to the people that deserve the shit talk... the politicians, not the troopers.

Stop talking shit about the troopers ... save that for the firemen .....

Our gunships are Apaches instead of Hueys or Cobras (Unless you are a Marine) and we have AC-130's instead of AC-47's. Other than that, the only difference between you and I is that I NEVER refer to the time I spent in Iraq as "the good old days", even if I'm trying to be witty on a blog. THe blood you shed over in Vietnam in no redder than the blood we shed in our war. I would hope that a veteran would share mutual respect for men and women who served after him. You should be ashamed of youself.

I too was at TARA 3rd watch in the recent past and was astounded at the pedigrees that some of the instructors possessed. Actually, I was sort of proud that this organization, CPD, could actually put its hands on a group of young, bright people deliver a highly professional program

I guess you were the instructor with three years on the job. If working a beat car is just about writing parkers then do us a favor...leave the job now. Patrol is about many things like, being a preliminary investigator, dispute managers and code enforcers, etc. I guess you were another do-nothing taking a spot of a real soldier.

Get more time in patrol so you understand the job!
