Got Your Back?

  • Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis says as long as the actions of his police officers are reasonable, he'll be there for them. WBBM'S Jennifer O'Neill asked Weis about his perceived image problem among some of the rank-and-file and a feeling by some that he might not have their back, as he addresses a recent increase in violence five months into the job.
Which (as has been stated here, elsewhere and by people far wiser than we) is exactly when we don't need a supervisor to have our backs. We got a letter along with this story quote from an anonymous copper:
  • I don't need a boss when I'm right. I barely need a boss when I'm 99% right. I need a boss who's willing to stick it out there on the line and defend me when I'm 93 or 95% right and my intentions were good. I'm not looking for absolution for sins not yet committed. I'm looking to keep my house and my car and my job when some bloodsucker comes looking for a big payout because I did what cops have done for generations - kept decent people safe from assholes.
We tend to agree. The world isn't all black and white - there are a lot of gray areas out there. Bosses understand that. J-Fed, being a supervisor/manager, obviously does not.

That is why a reasonable person answers jobs, backs up each other, writes reports & goes home after 8hrs.....

I understand totally police work has a lot more gray than black and white. You fly by the seat of your pants most of the time unlike a FED who rarely has to fly by the seat of their pants. FEDS can plan for weeks and request what they need to achieve their goal and almost 99% of the time stay out of the gray area. Working police officers may have a few minutes, poor equipment and no back up on certain jobs that occur daily if not multiple times a day. Many times these police officers have to tread in the gray area more often than not under extreme circumstances. JFED will never get it because he only sees black and white. Da Mayo will never get it because he is arrogant and does really not care about the police or really anyone in general if you you are of no importance.

A Supe who wears a white shirt but bleeds blue and
will always be a patrolman thru and thru.

Ahhhh Do I miss the old days of refusing jobs- Remember when caps started? Beat Integrity?

Squad thats not my beat
Squad thats not my sector
Squad What about beat integrity?

Why do we even bother with beats?

Todays sheets in my district showed 3 beats cars downed. The wagon and 2 cars were 10-4.

This is pathetic. Ive attended to many Police funerals, and I dont want to go to anymore. Seriously Doffyn, Fountain, Strouse, Knight, Ceriale and others all testaments to the Citys gun laws at work.

Ignorance is bliss- Citizens of Chicago please wake-up soon

No SCC, he doesn't and will never understand that b/c he's never been the Police. And especially never had to deal with the shit we have to deal with every day. He has no clue what it's like to chase guys with guns around corners, get shot at, get beat up, all while trying to protect people and attempt to do good. Sometimes things just don't go text book, and exactly as the 1000's of general orders state. You sometimes need to improvise to save your life, or to let these shitbags know that you mean business and they can't walk all over you.
No matter what anyone says, you cannot police exactly according to those general orders. It's impossible. There's heat of the moments and sometimes emotions and adrenaline run so high that things just happen. That's when we need him to have our back!
When caught on tape giving someone a smack, let the public know that he just took a shot a police officer or whatever the situation and that's why he got hit. It's such a shame that it's not like that anymore and prob never will be again.

More scams in patrol. Good thing some idiot came up with back to the streets for the inside people because that really helped in 010 on 3rd watch. 1 Sgt and 2 PO's are now being detailed off the watch to headquarters so they can go work back to the street and come in with some sort of numbers while the back to the street police go out as some call number that is not part of the watch and doesn't have to respond to radio calls. Who knows how many other districts had to detail working PO's to back to the streets from their watch also to pad numbers?

More smoke and mirrors... Meanwhile now they have been denying people time off again in 010 because of this bullshit...and they have been averaging 7/9 cars down a night. Whats up with the lawsuit FOP?

And then the Commnander has the nerve (i'm sure ordered by Supt) to come to roll call and preach how the department has your back, PLEASE!!! DO AGGRESIVE WORK!!!
Well commander if you have our back get all those detailed people back into 010 to man the cars. Maybe crime would go back down. Last time I checked if I wanted to be agressive and do work I get jobs non-stop all night anyways. What that ain't work? That ain't aggressive? Responding to my hour old calls as soon as I get them knocking out paper promptly and returing to service for another one.
You and the other bosses have to be aggressive and find people to work the pre-determined man power needs of the districts. That would be the beat cars/rapids/wagons. ( and not 99) Until those are filled every night you should not even have to be heard from complaining about how aggressive or not we are. You and the rest off the inside people (back to steets clouters) should be filling those beat cars/ rapids/ wagons. Or I forgot you guys are above that kind of aggressive work cause in your eyes that aint aggressive work.

J-Fed is the biggest liar ever! His actions speak louder than words and his actions toward Cozzie showed us what he will do behind our backs! What this department has become is truely sad. How can we respect a leader who was never a Chicago Police Officer or any type of police officer? This is so simple, it's a no-brainer! He wears the uniform of many who died wearing it and that is wrong! Wear a fucking suit J-Fed!We all know bosses will never back us because they are out for themselves and always will be. Of course they want us to be aggressive because it's about them and their numbers. Our hard work only makes them look good and they know if we screw up they are off all paper and have total seperation from us. Hell, when we miss court or some other small infraction the bosses have the paper done immediately with-in days and put it in our file. But if we do something good they may get around to putting it in our file in a year or so if at all! Sometimes they even say, "it's your job."
It's no concern to them if we are out of a contract once again as long as they keep their spot and bring in the nice check. Unfortunately the damage done to this department can not be reparied. No trust, poor leadership, no backing, double standards, back stabbing, lies, clout, corrupt politicians and much much more! Oh, and once again no contract for over one year now. They think the police are slowing down now. Just wait til the city screws us again on our next contract. That's whenever they feel we're important enough to give us one! Get ready guys their going to give us less and take more away. This will be the worst contract ever! How could even a stupid person expect us to be motivated?

Chicago is truly "Out of Control":

CHICAGO -- A Chicago liquor store owner is offering $125 to any person who turns over a gun to city police.
Raymond Figueroa says he believes he has to raise consciousness.
The owner of La Borinquena says his message might look like a contradiction because he runs a liquor store.
But the 60-year-old former alderman says he wants people to keep the community safe. He's offering the money to any person who turns over a gun to police in the city's 14th district.

That is precisely why many coppers have slowed down. We don't need a Supt who is there for us only when we are being 100% correct and "reasonable"

We need someone who will cover us when we are slightly less than 100% correct and a bit unreasonable. That is why CPD born and bred Supt. are preferred, they understand, at least, that police work in Chicago is an inexact science requiring one to occasionally to get one's hands dirty.

This is not FBI investigatory work, this is rough and tumble policing in the big city and occasionally people need to be pushed around a bit. that is just the way it is.

This has always been the unwritten rule. Most Supt's know when this line has been crossed, they know because most have spent years doing the job right there along side us. That is the only way to know.

Jody wants us to adhere exactly to the rules and always be reasonable, that is what he will get. Show me one place in the General Orders or Rules and Regs where it says anything at all about being aggressive. It doesn't. Nowhere does it say aggressive.

This is what you get J-Fed, we now follow the rules, you asked for it, you got it. We don't trust you, period. We will get our own backs thank you very much. Enjoy your stay here. Then around the time our contract is settled or slightly later you can pack your bags and get the fuck out.

This is the first time that I'm aware of the media ever asking this type of question to a Chicago Superintendent of Police.

J-Clown ain't misbehavin' in the office or in the gym. So he and the public "media" thinks police work is clean, spotless, and professional.

Sorry to dampen your belief people. Humans are by far the most dangerous creatures to walk the earth. Unless you have seen this human cruelty up close with your very own eyes with a nose in it you really don't know why that uniform officer is taking care of business.

When you see a copper beating up on an idiot. Your first reaction should be that the "idiot" must be a real asshole to get his ass kicked by that nice policeman.

If you think I am full of shit! Eliminate the entire criminal justice system in the country and free all the inmates! It would be interesting to see if da mayor will ask for the National Guard?

The Advocate is actually very informative and entertaining. It merely outlines some of the idiots we have on this job. Not paying parking tickets or falsifying reports will always get you in trouble. Having cocaine in your house will get you fired, providing info to your gangbanger boyfriend will get you fired and now getting drunk will get you fired. Thanks Anthony Abbatte!!

Most of the department rules make sense but the most recent article about drinking and being under the influence is bullshit! The FOP should be fighting the city's new discipline proposals tooth and nail otherwise everyone on the CPD will be treated like they are drinking underage.

Stand up for yourself and once they counsel you for activity put in writing asking in writing to be shown how they are basing this lack of activity.

Then ask to be coached daily, weekly and monthly on how much activity is expected and how they will set you up for success in achieving those daily numbers.

"The Box Chevy Phantom" says...

Hmmmm... "Reasonable actions"?
Is that the cloak the feeb is wrapping himself in now? Is he saying that he won't hurt a hard working police officer if that officer's actions were reasonable?

Reason by whose standards? Typical feeb fuckery advanced as some semblance of coherent policy. Police work by it's very nature (in a socialist setting such as ours) flies in the face of reason.

Unlike our federal counterparts, we don't have the luxury of lengthy planning and legal consultation when we roll up on these very dynamic and fluid situations on the streets of the West & South Sides. Dynamic and fluid when introduced to the belt driven circular cooling device tends to be on everyone in close proximity. (making sense yet?)

If my partner and I on-view a goblin shooting a group of ghouls with a fully automatic weapon and attempt to flee on foot, would I be reasonable (given the totality) in restraining my partner from giving chase on foot and running the goblin over with the department vehicle, thus causing his demise? Dead ghouls? Yes. Dead goblin? Very yes. Recovered weapon? Retrieved from the goblin's grasp after the car is jacked up. Injured police officers? Absolutely not and worth the ink on the paper in my opinion. But will my actions be viewed as "reasonable" according to the head feeb? In short, no. What if the alternate scenario played out and myself or partner pursued on foot and one or both of us were injured or killed in the sure to ensue gunfight? Well, that's ok if we are to follow the feebs thinking on what is reasonable. Policemen are injured or dead but he has their back.

This poor excuse for a leader apparently never encountered life or institutional adversity and has never gone toe to toe with anyone who would rather flee or kill (when cornered) than be returned to incarceration or face legally enacted sanction for breaching his contract with society. But he has the luxury in hindsight to review a police officer's actions and determine whether it is politically expedient to have an officer's back... Mr. Weis, we don't NEED YOU when we're %75 to %100 right... it's when we MUST MAKE A PLAY on a 50/50 that we need backing... Oh nevermind, that's a finely nuanced shade of gray you're unable/unwilling to see...

As it is, there is no Police Officer in this city who is in their right mind willing to risk their homes, families, livelihood or FREEDOM because you and your exempt members are begging us to "be aggressive". You sir have set the tone as you are here to wage open warfare against the rank and file of this department. Being aggressive will get police officers suspended, stripped and imprisoned on a whim. I won't risk ANYTHING of mine for you, this department or this city. Anyone who does is properly marked as a fool and deserves what you will no doubt give them.

We will continue to answer calls, back one another up, document crimes and fulfill our role as preliminary investigators and such but getting in people's faces, doing dispersals and enforcing public peace laws without a complianant or in violation of constitutional rights or arrests without a signed complaint by a citizen? You and your exempts can cease with all the "rah-rah i got your back, take back the streets" noise...

The days of real bosses are long gone. Fat Phil politicized the CPD beyond recognition and tossed aside some of the best talent we had to appease all of his cronies.

The real question is why did Mayor Richard M. Daley permit this?

Are you smoking crack? Cline put people in place he trusted(which every Supe does and always did)(except First Dep, which is the Mayors pick) all the people launched by Weis and Petersen were Cline people, who had the ecperience to get things done. Now we are in dire straits and they wonder why? lol it's a joke that will only get funnier..

Didn't Fat Phil say he had Sgt Clifford's back when he stopped the Rev???

A few days later he was dry humping and hugging the Revun to death. Imagine all 375lbs sqeezing up on you in his Make Belief Church.

This shit only happens in Chicago and would be good material for a satirical comedy.

Nohting happened to Clifford if you followed it, Cline played the game. Clifford got a reprimand at the worst(if he even got that.)Cline went out his way to try and help the working copper, maybe too much in some instances...

had a dope arrest, was in the processing room, The processing room is small, one table, the prisoner is on a bench a few feet away. a disturbance was outside the door, I stepped to the door to ensure the police were ok, as i stepped away my prisoner grabbed the dope from the table, yes he was handcuffed, and swallowed it. we took the prisoner to the hospital to try and get the dope out but he refused treatment. went to the 3rd watch w/c, told him, the paperwork was done. he had us put it in the report, and said he didn't see anywrong doing only bad judgement so there was no need for cr#. here is a guy who used his judgement and obviously his balls and looked out for us. the easy way out would of been to get the cr# and let us deal with it, but he stepped up, and this from a new lt whom i had never met and actually from a different watch.

Police employees are second class citizens and the violations do not stop at residency rules. Probable cause, due process and objective investigations do not apply to us as well.

However, as I always say, Daley almost has his dream come true; pacifist police letting the democrats run the city and driving out all those who will never vote for him. Everything done is to cultivate votes.

More scams in patrol. Good thing some idiot came up with back to the streets for the inside people because that really helped in 010 on 3rd watch. 1 Sgt and 2 PO's are now being detailed off the watch to headquarters so they can go work back to the street and come in with some sort of numbers while the back to the street police go out as some call number that is not part of the watch and doesn't have to respond to radio calls. Who knows how many other districts had to detail working PO's to back to the streets from their watch also to pad numbers?

More smoke and mirrors... Meanwhile now they have been denying people time off again in 010 because of this bullshit...and they have been averaging 7/9 cars down a night. Whats up with the lawsuit FOP?

And then the Commnander has the nerve (i'm sure ordered by Supt) to come to roll call and preach how the department has your back, PLEASE!!! DO AGGRESIVE WORK!!!
Well commander if you have our back get all those detailed people back into 010 to man the cars. Maybe crime would go back down. Last time I checked if I wanted to be agressive and do work I get jobs non-stop all night anyways. What that ain't work? That ain't aggressive? Responding to my hour old calls as soon as I get them knocking out paper promptly and returing to service for another one.
You and the other bosses have to be aggressive and find people to work the pre-determined man power needs of the districts. That would be the beat cars/rapids/wagons. ( and not 99) Until those are filled every night you should not even have to be heard from complaining about how aggressive or not we are. You and the rest off the inside people (back to steets clouters) should be filling those beat cars/ rapids/ wagons. Or I forgot you guys are above that kind of aggressive work cause in your eyes that aint aggressive work.

Tell the commando to read the blog...Cozzi and the that Detective working the Film Detail is a good place to start.

Tell smart ass with political clout and no leadership qualifications to call the Dept Advocate and the Superintendent's Office for more names never mentioned on the blog.

Tell that fool to contact the call back unit and ask around there who's been waiting for years without a resolution to their situation.

Tell numb nuts to call the Academy and ask the former SOS commanding officer how many recruits he fired for bull shit domestics and off duty drinking that resulted in nothing worth mentioning here. While he's still on the phone ask about those candidates who failed the Chicago sit up because of their race?

The commando's ignorance is just another example of an out-of-touch incompetent police manager who is not aware of what is going on in the department.

A real leader wouldn't even ask a stupid question like that unless he's talking to the midnights who have less than three years on the job and just learning how to do real police work.

As your reading this there's a stack of suspension/termination papers sitting on the Supt's desk waiting to be signed.

What a joke,the Tribune printed a story about the Chicago Mob making a combined total of $20,000,000 since the 1960's.

Do these people really think we are that stupid? Multiply that by 1000 and that would be conservative. The average tip can pull down 30-40K a day.

Report: Mob made $20 million since '60s

Federal authorities in the landmark Family Secrets mob case estimate the Chicago Outfit has raked in more than $20 million from illicit activities since the 1960s.

In paperwork filed Monday in the sentencing of the first of five defendants, prosecutors are seeking the forfeiture of some of the illicit gains. Anthony "Twan" Doyle, a former Chicago police officer who was convicted of passing information to the mob, is scheduled to be sentenced by U.S. District Judge James Zagel on Oct. 1.

In documents filed Monday, the government estimated the Outfit made $20,258,556, to be precise, chiefly through gambling. Calling the figure "very conservative," authorities said it was compiled from all the witnesses at last summer's trial.

How many of the "Meritoriously promoted" officers were aggressive? From what I have seen, NONE. They took no risk at all, sitting behind a desk or driving someone around until their turn came. Never saw one in felony court, never seen them at 26th st., yet now they wear stripes and are our supervisors.

LIAR ! ! !

I know for a fact Deputy Chief WYSINGER was VERY aggressive!!!
He was promoted meritorious sergeant in 1998.
Meritorious Lieutenant in 2002.
Appointed Commander in 2005.
Appointed Deputy Chief in 2008.
He worked his ass off as well as sucked cock of many politicians.
He was really a great guy.
He would talk to you like a gentleman before he stabbed you in the back.

Deputy Chief Keating didn't work aggressively and is at the top. Kissing ass works well. Society should start teaching this technique in grammar school that way everyone can be on the same playing field. I've never had kiss ass training. Now I'm lacking those skills and have to be a blue shirt aggressive copper. Hoping that someone recognizes my talents. Unlikely......

Hey nitwit, BIS and personel concerns has been around for as long as I have been on. Phil may have enforced it more than his predecessors but he didn't invent it.
SOS was disbanded by Dana after Phil took his retirement.
Lt. on search warrants I will give you, but when is the last time you did a search warrant?
As far as chronies and hacks? Every top level copper on this job since it's inception in 1865 has put his or her people in. It is the Chicago way and it is contagious. Jody has taken care of all his old time feeb buddies and put them in place and even created spots for them.
So do us all a favor, hair gel asshat, check your facts before you open your mouth and get dippity doo in it.

Holy shit, youre 110% RIGHT, Let us not forget Supt Cline was also responsible for the holocust, locusts, the fucking plague, eating pizza so hot it burns the roof of your mouth, rain on nice days, sub-zero weather....

"BIS and Personnel Concerns Program"
UUUMMMM, Can you say "HILLARD"?

"Disbanded SOS and fucked the cops"
This decision was made from outside the Dept (ie. City Hall), Cline, Im willing to bet, was not even in this state at the time SOS was disbanded. Guess what, HE WAS NOT THE SUPT. AT THAT TIME! Starks was, he got the order from City Hall, handed it to Chizewski(sp?) and Risley, and told those two goofs to "handle this any way you want, dont touch Marine, Mounted, K-9, or SWAT"

"Lts needed on Seach Warrants"
Because a handfull of blueshirts were fucking it up for the rest of us!

TRR's-
Ok, you got me on this one!

"Chronies and hacks and scandals to boot."
Read your history books; Greeks, Romans, all the way on up till now! This is still Chicago, and "THATS the Chicago way" (to quote a movie). Aint never gonna change!

Hillard tossed more cops under the bus in the last few years in his office than Cline ever did! Dont get me wrong, Cline was no where close to perfect, he did promote some real inept people, and some fucked up shit went on under his reign, but when you start pointing the finger, at least point it at the right people, at the right time!

Nohting happened to Clifford if you followed it, Cline played the game. Clifford got a reprimand at the worst(if he even got that.)Cline went out his way to try and help the working copper, maybe too much in some instances

WHY IS IN 002 NOW?

Because he bid there to get out of 005, you blame him?

All you jerk offs on here who cry about the scum of society who sponge off our tax dollars and how we have to protect them all have this sick sense of entitlement. You either knew what you were getting into when came on this job, or you are incredibly stupid. I understand that the brass is shoving it up a lot of asses to protect their own asses, but what do you expect when you work a government job. I'll say what you all say to the people who don't like the laws of our country. If you don't like it, leave. Get a new job. Go to college and become another Gordon fucking Gecko and when you lose your shirt you will realize how good you had it.

I am all for our union when they work for the good of all of us, not the good of the union reps. I also know that there are plenty of times coppers have been screwed for doing their job. But don't act like this is all Wies and the people he put in charge. If there was internet access in the late 70s and early 80s, this same shit would have been spewed back then. This shit has been going on forever.

had a dope arrest, was in the processing room, The processing room is small, one table, the prisoner is on a bench a few feet away. a disturbance was outside the door, I stepped to the door to ensure the police were ok, as i stepped away my prisoner grabbed the dope from the table, yes he was handcuffed, and swallowed it. we took the prisoner to the hospital to try and get the dope out but he refused treatment. went to the 3rd watch w/c, told him, the paperwork was done. he had us put it in the report, and said he didn't see anywrong doing only bad judgement so there was no need for cr#. here is a guy who used his judgement and obviously his balls and looked out for us. the easy way out would of been to get the cr# and let us deal with it, but he stepped up, and this from a new lt whom i had never met and actually from a different watch. This is the kind of boss we need when we make an honest mistake.

You were very lucky. Prisoners are never to be left alone. That
boss took a hell of a chance on you. I wouldn't have posted it here, I would have learned from it, though. Oh, and by the way,
drugs & evidence are never left
within reach of arrestees either.

The days of real bosses are long gone. Fat Phil politicized the CPD beyond recognition and tossed aside some of the best talent we had to appease all of his cronies.

The real question is why did Mayor Richard M. Daley permit this?

7/22/2008 01:24:00 AM

Hillard started it by making individuals with less than 15 yeras experince bosses.

Hey 07/22 3:47 AM,

"We don't need your help if we are in the wrong?" I hope you don't get help if you are "in the wrong", goof!

If your intentions are "in the right" you may need help! But if you are "in the wrong", no pity from me!

If the city had our backs it would idemnify us for punitive damages like it did until the State passed the Illinois Tort reform Act effective June 1986. We have not been covered since. The City can exercise Home Rule and choose to indemnify us. Eugene Sawyer offered this to us in our contract which FOP turned down without a membership vote. They waited for a better deal from Daley. We got the exact same contract from Daley, minus indenification for punitive damages.

The more successful that you are in your personal life, the more at risk you are. Punitive damages are are determined, in part, by what you have. Now you stand to lose everything at the hands of a jury that does not like you because you are the police.
Hey Jody, lobby for this change, you might just see an increase in effort.

Do the thugs and bangers play by the rule??? Hell no. They fight, they throw shit at you, they run, they lie. They don't stop their felonies acts when we approach them or demand that they stop, they actually turn it up a notch or two.....so tell me sir Jfed, what is reasonable???????? They break the "rules", i.e. laws all the time, we have to do what is necessary to stop it, even though it is not in black and white in the GO's. That's the difference between the real police and the wanna-be who doesn't have a clue police.
