Rumors Everywhere

Might as well start the week with a couple:
  • Fully two-thirds of the tactical lieutenants across the city will be shuffled, replaced, moved, or whatever the current euphemism is for "dumped."
Not surprising. As it was, commanders were moving their administrative staffs around since the shake up, sergeants right afterwards. Lieutenants were next on the block.

This one has some big rumblings behind it though:
  • Someone has to fall on their sword during August. Someone high up.
The Taste debacle and the continuing downward spiral of numbers coming out of Patrol are leading to the inescapable conclusion that this Department is damaged, perhaps beyond repair. This past weekend's homicide and shooting numbers continue to spotlight the failed leadership of Team J-Fed. Our guess? Cuello is on borrowed time. Patrol's failures are her failures; her nonsensical ramblings and lack of answers at the J-Fed hearings spoke volumes; her recent threats against certain spots not being "birthrights" shows a complete disconnect. She's in over her head and her managerial style (as if piloting the Titanic into an iceberg can be classified as "style") leave much to be desired.

Look for the deck chairs to be rearranged shortly. The only question we have is will she be dumped or promoted out of the way?

But, surely they've all secured their jobs with the highly successful, uneventful passing of Venetian night?

Or not.

Also the first ever potato sack races with the Supt. have been cancelled until further notice.

Lets start dumping some of these worthless captains. Who gives a shit if you get dumped as a tack lieutenant the pay is still the same. They should make the tactical lieutenants position a captain that way a dump is actually punishment.

So lets see, I am a tact lt. who has to work every watch as a fill in watch commander, my hours get changed daily, i get shipped out to details all over the city, and i have tact guys who are even treated worse. So you want to dump me? Dam i am upset, oh i'll lose my car, well that does suck. I'll go back to the watch, stay on my watch, not have to harass the p/o's for activity, and go home on time. So bring it on and good luck getting more sheep to take my place.

Hey keedz! It’s your old friend, dee Frito Bandito, also known as Senor Gordo, dee Locker Nazi, and, of course, my real name, Captain Juan Morado!

Let me say this....since I rode dee coattails of my friend Sal over to 025 I reely, reely miss screwing over my former underlings at 014. Yes, it’s true....I miss it, but here now at LAPA West I have all new underlings to tread upon, so pleeeze....don’t feel too bad for your old Bandito! My only regret is that I did not take advantage of Lazo’s lunch buffet as often as I could have before leeeving 014....it’s dee only place that buttered my chorizo.

Let me tell you though, my friends....as much as I wanted to come in and just wipe my greasy ass with dee officers....AND supervisors....Ay! Hee! Hee!....of 025, I can tell you dat dee demoralizing effect I had hoped for has not come to pass. No, my friends, dee dark legends of 025 that have always seemed unbelievable....ancient Indian burial grounds....grown men howling like wolves in dee stairwells....shower shitters....cat food hors d’oeuvre....The Gallows....Sir Donkey....it’s all true! I did not think it possible, but my friends, believe me when I tell you this does not even scratch dee surface! Ay! I tried to stick with what I know works best....waddling around dee station giving everyone my best arrogant scowl....but nothing! It just does nothing to theese bunch of eediots! It’s like I’m walking around on goddamn zombie island or something! I’ve grown accustomed to it now, my friends, but I’m not ashamed to admit when I first recognized dat my trusty arrogant scowl was not working its usual voodoo I broke a cold sweat on my scalp that had a river of Moco de Gorila running down dee rolls of my neck!

Let me get right to dee point, my friends....I will admit it seems my friend Sal and I bit off more than we can chew here in 025, but when promises are made and your buddy is dee brother-in-law of dee governor you gotta figure everytheeng’s going to work out in your favor, right? I meeen, am I right? It’s true dat my friend Sal is a bumbling eediot, but he surrounds heemself with lesser eediots, so no one should be aware that he heemself is an eediot, right? How was I to know? I meeen reely....what good is clout eef it can’t protect you from yourself!?!

And now dee real point, my friends....between the district eediots, alderman eediots, headquarter eediots, and my own eediot self for hitching my wagon to my eediot friend, it seems dee writing may soon be on dee wall....my dreams of “commanding”....(that’s another word I use for “screwing”....Ay! Hee! Hee!)....025 may be finished. Ay, it’s made all the more cruel now that I’ve had a taste of it these past weeks. Holy frijoles!! Whadda kick in dee huevos!

Yes, my friends, it will be reely embarrassing for me to be spanked back to W/C, but in the misery of whatever days remain before I cash in my cheeps and retire I will at leeest have some joy squeezed out of knowing I’ll be able to vent my scowling frustration on a few more blue shirts....and I deedn’t forget you supervisors eeether!....before I skulk off into dee sunset. I only wish it wasn’t wasted on these goddamn 025 zombies! They reely creep me out!

I worked Venetian night, just like I worked the July 3rd fiasco. So we get our spots, but noticeably there were less p/o's present for duty. We also get these words from Commander Ryan: If they are wearing colors or flashing signs, the whole crew gets housed and we will process them at our leisure. Think they learned anything from the 3rd???? Ryan is a great dude. He also knows how to do his job without treating people like they are 5. Know why there weren't any problems on Venetian night? Because the animal wasn't out. All families and actual adults. But you can bet your ass that car 47 (who may be the biggest jackass alive) along with J-fed and every other puckered gold star will be patting themselves on the back for it. Bottom line: No M/1's wearing white t-shirt and shorts...no problems.

Unless they get rid of Dickhead or the Brown Avenger there's nowhere to promote her to on the CPD.

My team was almost dumped this last week because they said there were low numbers. Supposedly we were to be replaced, by who, I do not know, and I do not care. I can make "days" easily. They said that they were going to dump all the people with the lowest numbers on each team. Listen up!! We don't care... dump us!! The days of getting the heads are over!! Signed complaints or legitimate on-view arrests, other than that you can forget it boss...I will do my job, but I will not bump up your numbers and risk my house, job and dignity for you.
The sandbagging that went on for decades is a thing of the past, it is time for this department to re-evaluate itself and get competent people and policies in place to help street coppers do their job.

You can say what you want about the credibility of anonymous posts about bosses, but when you consider how the majority of department supervisors never, ever get a negative mention here you get a better understanding of how at least some measure of credibility can be established for comments about those who do. That’s either because most supervisors are good, fair, or a combination of both and don’t merit being called out, or the goofs that really stand out head and shoulders above the crowd make for exceptionally easy targets.

For anyone with first-hand experience dealing with Avila and Morado – these two easy targets have had it coming to them for a long time now for many reasons. It can’t happen a moment too soon and will be a huge morale lift for 014 & 025 when the big storm of bad karma they’ve built up over the years rains down on them and their entourage.

Retirement offers so many pleasures, not the least of which is kicking back and watching Emperor Daley and his puppet Weis assemble their management "dream team" based on "merit".

Even to the grave, I will always remain passionately proud of serving as "Chicago's Finest". It was my calling in life. Hunting down low-life muthafuckers who preyed on decent folks was the most fun I could have with my clothes on.

While I'm trying my damnedest to repress schadenfreude, I now realize that if meaningful reforms are ever to occur in "Clout City", it will require an exorcism of hizzonor da mare and the Democratic Machine.

My only advice to talented young officers is to look for career options elsewhere. Our "Titanic" will forver rest on the bottom of the North Atlantic. CPD = FUBAR.

Better to laugh than cry over a catastrophe in which you have absolutely no control.

They waited 3 years until right before the election to bring the information forward. Anyway, he is the only worthless Tact Lt. He has NEVER been on Tact and came from inside job to the next inside job. His even more stupid Comamnder of the 2nd District has no sense of management.

WTF does the tact LT have to do with all these homicides? Is that supposed to be the answer? People are worried and rightfully so. This new regime has shown time and time again that they do not care and each and every one of us is replacable. I need my paycheck for the support of my family. I will not do anything to let them down and that obviously includes me going the extra mile.

Go out and sweep or round-up! I've heard the boss say these words way to often in the last few months and it definitely aint happenin'. I used to like coming to work and locking people up. This department has taken that away from me. Will I ever get it back...doubtfully, but it is possible.

I know you clowns running this dept read this blog. You get in that car with just one other person and do some police work. Real police work and see what it takes...that is if you ever knew how. Oh, you process the arrest yourself(see how long that takes when you have a jack-ass WC that wants a whole lifes history in the narrative of the arrest report and not just the PROBABLE CAUSE which is ALL YOU ARE RESONSIBLE FOR SCHWEIGEL or whatever your name is...and change your pants you useless prick). Don't forget to go to court...oh no...no lunch for you either. Backlog baby. On to your next 20 jobs and where the heck is your mover and curfews?

We need more police. That will help some.

Most importantly we need a real leader. J-Fed, I watched you on 103rd and Lowe and when it was your turn to talk to the supposed largest police dept in the nation, you got quiet and stepped back a few steps. That really shows how afraid you are of us. I will never have any respect for that. I was proud of being a Chicago Police Officer and you should be too. You should have grabbed that bullhorn (go ahead it's ok) took a step or two forward and gave your $.02. Tell them we are the Police and this IS how it will be if you break the law AND disrespect us.


Yes, now they do that more often than I've evr seen. These people talk to us however they want. That can't be and YOU need to remedy that.

J-fed...either change or quit...I can't handle the rest of my career watching you as Dick the Prick Daleys hand puppet fumble and fuck this dept. up.

Watch this and see how it makes you feel...I know how it MADE me feel...

Whether it is Aunt Bea, Weis, Peterson or any other brain surgeon at 35th St. no one is going to prevent murders. They could prevent some burglaries, robberies, thefts. But they would need agressive polivemen for that who know how to arrest a felon. A lot of these uncle daddy boys and girls could't find their ass with both hands.

They could do as the Rodriguez, Cline and some other administrations have done, don't write they up as homicides. Let them stay as Agg. Batts. and no one knows the diff.

This police department is such a disaster that it makes me cringe! The scary part is we are still falling and there is no bottom in sight! Horrible leadership from the top down accompanied by no trust or confidence equals a BIG MESS!

Our salaries are dwindling with the sky rocketing cost of living increases and once again no contract. The politicians have no worries because they just vote themselves heafty raises. The city shits on us every time our contract expires and insults us with their offers. If they think morale and the "work slowdown" is bad now just wait till the city screws us on our next contract. They will finally crush morale and the lack of police work will dwarf what they are experiencing now! Even the young guys will wake up. Get ready this contract will be the worst one yet. They keep expanding our mission and responsibilites, but don't give us the support or equipment. They keep saying "do more with less" and that also means with less money! Did they ever hear the phrase, "pay the police like your life depends on it!" Be safe brothers and don't let the bosses sacrafice you for their numbers game!

They had a sgt who wanted them to work and they got him dumped! Believe me nothing is gonna change in 019. It is great! We average about 3 heads a period. Last week they sat down and talked to us about activity and it was a joke. Everyone laughed afterwards.

That's always been the chain of command. The Supe , then the 1st and then the Dep. Super. of Bureau of Invest. Services. Always been that way. Remember when Starks left and Weis appointed a temporary 1st Dep? Who was it? Hiram Grau, Dep. Sup. Bur. Inv. Serv. Chain of Command.

Command rank structure

1. Sup
2. 1st Dep (used to be over Bur of Operational Services, which included the Patrol Division - when Patrol was commanded by a Chief)
3. Bur of Investigative Services
4. Bur of Patrol (the original structure made sense, patrol over all else... then investigations... everything after that was a support enity of one sort or another)

Forget about who is where now... patrol should supercede investigations at the hog trough since they are now unteathered from the 1st Dep. But with everything else out of whack around CPD... what's the diff?

The Ram's idea... back in the day... was 3 bureaus... patrol... investigations... and then everyone else (support). They didn't like that idea... it would have cut a lot of fat from the top.

I have no inside information about this meeting but I would dare say that this is going to be the "pick it up and get a head a day or you will be launched" speech that several other units have already gotten. Be prepared for the worst and hope for the best. Do not compromise your safety for any reason. A bullet doesn't care if you are dogging it or the hardest worker on the department. Death and injury are always lurking around a corner. Cops have been killed being aggressive and they have been killed while catching a snooze in the "hole". Be careful, watch those hands and use your head! Treat everyone you meet like they have a gun and they want to kill you. You don't need to be rude or abusive, just cautious and proffessional.

An affirmative action hire in the first place that could not pass a sigle promotional examination afterward. I passed two. She owes her paycheck to her Irish clout and has no loyalty to anything else. She is an embarrassment to the uniform and if she had any decency would quietly step aside. Why would anyone of any rank do anything, risk everything, to see any chance of reward-their promtion-snatched away and given to incompetant hacks. Stop merit promtions.

those of you hating on mike ryan from 022, obviously don't know him. if you meet him once or twice he is somewhat arrogant, but there is nothing he wouldn't do to help another p/o. He worked his entire career and expects p/o's to do their job. Yes there is a slow down, but you still have a contract that protects your rights or else you could get shipped from watch to watch, district to district at a whims notice with no monetary compensation. If this job is so bad, QUIT, good luck finding a job where you can make this money with not a lot expected out of you.
Yes our job is dangerous and we are extremely under appreciated, but the only ones you should need approval from are your peers, family and especially yourself.
I'm sure there are 100's or arguments and retorts to my rants, but this is still a great job, remember our goal is to be able to say, " I miss the clowns not the circus". You can take away furlough days, commit double jeopardy, put us under the bus, BUT I and I hope you will always back each other up.

So lets see, I am a tact lt. who has to work every watch as a fill in watch commander, my hours get changed daily, i get shipped out to details all over the city, and i have tact guys who are even treated worse. So you want to dump me? Dam i am upset, oh i'll lose my car, well that does suck. I'll go back to the watch, stay on my watch, not have to harass the p/o's for activity, and go home on time. So bring it on and good luck getting more sheep to take my place.

Lt. Mike ryan from 022 is a hell of a nice guy that you could go out and have a beer with. However, he never did one day of police work his entire career on this job. He worked in 021 on a watch - did nothing - went to tact for a very short time and did nothing. Made sergeant with about 4 yrs. on the job and then Lt. with about 8 yrs. he 's no dummy, he is very book smart. However, he has never been the street police. He will smoke a cigar and tell war stories all day long, but he's all talk. He's never walked the walk. He hid in headquarters for almost his entire time as a lt. and then left because he pouted that they did not make him a commander like they did his cousin. he came to 022 to be made Capt., but it never happen. When he was at headquarters, his youthful arrogance and smart ass remarks turned off a lot of bosses, that's why he never went any higher. Maybe now with Jody, he will have a chance. But your right, he is a great guy who will pull over and help you change a flat and the first to give money to a worthy cause. But he was never the police and the real working police can see through this phoniness with all his trumped up war stories.
If he kept his mouth shut and was not forever patting himself on the back, everyone would love him. He is very knowledgeable. I wish him no ill, but I don't need to listen to his bragging. 2nd Watch in 022 is full of old - timers, they know Ryan's all talk and they just shake their heads.
These old timers might not do much now, but they were all the real police in their day.... They can spot a phony.

Replace the Tact Lt's? Why? There would just be a new group of ghost payrollers! Just check the new Lt. in Austin! "Just put me on the A & A's! And if anybody ask, I just left!" And then, when he's there, there's no rapport with the troops, it's just close the door, I don't want to know these clowns!

You post is accurate but not completely correct, mike worked 2113 and spent all his time in the projects and never studied for sgt until he made an arrest. Yes 21 was not as busy as 007,11, etc. but i can guarantee he was a worker, I was on 2111 and saw it everyday. But to those who don't like listening to mike's stories, how about walking away and stop gripping.

It's tough to walk away from Lt. Ryan when he is a non stop braggart. Whether it's roll call, going into the office to have something signed or approved, it's all about Mike Ryan and his war stories. How the hell are you suppose to walk away at roll call when he is the watch commander and everything is I, I, I......
