Tribune Editorial

  • "Daley, Weis and the 'meri-clout-orious' Command Staff have done something unheard of in the history of the Chicago Police Department. They've taken a diverse group of people who, for the most part, want to make life better for hundreds of thousands of citizens, and just about completely beaten the desire to serve out of each and every one of them. . . . Manpower? Down. Tickets? Down. Arrests? Down. Revenue? Down. Guns? Down. Search Warrants? Down. Crime? Up—and up double digits with no end in sight."

    Second City Cop blog, July 11, 2008


    What's this? Routine kvetching on the Web blog that Chicago cops most often read?

    Or does the current avalanche of often detailed complaints from officers about inept management—poor leadership within the department but also from politicians at City Hall—suggest that Chicago has serious policing problems? That, for whatever reason, the CPD is less effective at fighting crime than it has been in recent years?
The Department is rotting from the head down - and by "head" we mean City Hall. The Department is merely reflective of the constant political corruption pouring out of Chicago, Cook and Illinois politics.

Go read the entire editorial. It brings up some valid points. However, it missed a big one:
  • Kvetching, whether from blogging cops or preening aldermen, won't accomplish anything.
Actually, blogging cops have accomplished something that hasn't been done in years - uniting a large segment of the population into realizing there is a problem, something a Free Press should have been doing all the years they were eating up the crap politicians were serving.

Are you in for the long fight Tribune Editorial Staff?

"Are you in for the long fight Tribune Editorial Staff?"


It doesn't matter whether they are or not, or even what side they are on.


Fuck the Tribune.

Fuck the Sun-Times.

Fuck the talking head broadcast media.

Fuck the babbling brook radio bullshitters.

Fuck them all.


They're irrelevant, rendered so by the choices they've made.


The citizens will know what's going on the best way that citizens know, really know, anything; when it hits them upside their heads.


All the various media can do is play catch-up with reality.


That's as it should be, given their collective whore status.


Because, as surprising as it may be to some, IT'S WORKING.


The big question is:

Will enough continue to keep up the pressures of NO CONTRACT = NO CONTACT, even after a contract is signed, even a decent one?


Because the task at hand is no longer just getting a decent contract, it's no less than being the catalyst that produces a domino effect of cascading corrupt politicians, city and county, off the steep cliff of NOT being reelected, with their suck ass minions being pulled over the edge with them.


Start by electing Peraica to the States Attorney's office, and any other Republicans on the ballot. Not necessarily because you are a Republican, but primarily to disrupt the practically complete domination the Democrats have on this city and county.


Then develop a slate of candidates willing to challenge every city and county elected office, no matter which party currently occupies them.


How many retired officers might gladly volunteer to help, or be willing to be a candidate?


It's about time the citizens had candidates other than incumbent machine hacks, of either party, put up shills for either party and half-assed 'reformers' to choose from.

Prepare to get some manpower back in the districts. The bosses at TRUseless have implemented a 'head a day' rule and those who do not bring in a head for two days straight will be counseled. They screwed those earlier 100 by dumping them to 003, 004, 005, and 006 and now they pull this stunt.

Why does the Trib want to play "nice-nice" all of a sudden? They (and the Slum Times) bashed the ever-loving dogshit out of us when it served the purpose of selling more newspapers and advertising space to bolster their bottom-line profits.

Now they want to mediate and act like they want to help?

Sorry, Fibune... we ain't buying the load of crap you're selling. Your editorial is just another way of exploiting the rift between city hall and the police department just to sell newspapers. You're a private business with no personal stake in this other than to increase readership and sales... and we're wise enough to know it.

Holy Right Field Batman!!!

After the smoke clears what’s in store for us now? J-Fed’s brand of traditional policing methods...?

De-policing and low clearance rates of serious crimes are the net results of J-Fed’s current policies. This superintendent knew about rising crime, low moral[e], and dealing with community issues and safety concerns. He made promises to make changes. What’s going on? Maybe he just don’t give a shit because of a signed contract and a guaranteed three-year salary for $930,000.00. Whether crime is up or down. One or many children are murdered in our streets. J-Clown gets paid. He still gets paid if da mayor fired him tomorrow. I would like to see this contract our public officials approved.

What about J-Clown’s proactive policing idea...a new revised and improved SOS/TRU unit will not be assigned to 911 calls for service instead they will be assigned to directed missions that require aggressive policing tactics and increased contact with citizens? This type of policing creates many problems; uncertainty, potential for conflicts and misunderstandings. The majority of citizens complaints originate from proactive actions of police that resulted in verbal or physical conflicts between a police officer and a citizen. So why be proactive?

Quality-of-life arrests are short-term solutions to long-term problems. The public thinks along with old school police managers that short-term solutions net fast results but, in reality, they only prolong and enhance public violence from repeat criminals who displace their covert criminal activity around police enforcement tactics.

J-Clown should consider engaging the department in long-term strategies that involve criminal prosecutions that result in long-term incarnations and adopts civil actions taken against persons who engage in repeat criminal activity.

Yes the names mentioned in the original post are to blame, but the lawyers are part of it. They should be blasted by city hall daily, and the trib should do an article on the worst of them, and show the taxpayers where their money is going.
Could it really be that someone inside is getting a kickback from all these settlements?
Are there any legit investigative reporters left in this city?

"Weis also needs to push back at the politicians. Ask anyone who's worked in the upper echelons of the CPD how much interference comes from City Hall. If the answer isn't "Plenty," you're being lied to. The aldermen might spend more time demanding that parents and community groups in their wards confront street violence—and less time complaining that Weis doesn't call often enough to stroke their egos."

This is something that needs to be done for the sake of this department. Unfortunately I don't think J-Fed or any other clout boss for that matter have the balls it takes to tell the politicians to FUCK OFF! and let the police be the police!

Lead story in the Hyde Park Herald relates the ticketing of a 60 year old woman for swimming in Lake Michigan off of Promontory Point.

The article reports how it took 3 police officers plus the Chicago Police Department helicopter to remove her from the water in order to issue her a citation.

I have two questions:

1. Is this the only arrest that the helicopter unit responsible for?
2. If the National Guard is assigned to Chicago will the number of arrests for this heinous crime become a part one offense?

Like SCC states are they in for the "long haul"! Great statement, lets hope they follow this! Hey Tribune why did the mayors office and supt. cancel the order for new police vehicles? Why is it when Cline was told by budget they had no money for cpd manpower and equipment he went directly to mayor and it was approved? Maybe Cline had the balls to do it! Maybe because Cline was the "real police" and understood the problems we face daily! Why Tribune is daley allowed to keep on stealing,contracts to friends,way overinflated construction contrcas, why was elzie higglebottom a big daley contributor who managed the county building where the fire killed people let off the hook? why does daley and his wife use the bullshit minoority contract provision in awarding contracts at both midway and o'hare airports given to 1 black man who contributes heavily to all the politicians? (can you say fill my pockets? Why is it that rose andolino who was victor reyes secretary with no skills in charge of o'hare redevelopment at a huge salery cars drivers maybe for being quiet on "quiet vic"? It goes on and on with daley but yet he continues why is he not indicted? How many have fallen like santos-laski for what for $40,000? How much has daley criminal inc stolen? He makes John Gotti a saint! Investigative reporting time to wake up, maybe it would sell more papers and help keep you people in a job??

This is off topic, and perhaps I missed this news in previous postings, but did you see that Mayor Daley has appointed former Fire Commissioner Ray OROZCO as the new Executive Director of the city's Office of Emergency Management and Communications, "OEMC", and named John BROOKS as the new Fire Commissioner. Wait a minute, I thought that WEISS was in charge of OEMC because of his vast knowledge in fighting fires and handling disasters. What happened to WEISS wearing the two hats of Police Supt. and Director of OEMC.
Does WEISS now have to give up half his $310,000.00 salary so that Ray OROZCO can be paid.

KUDOS : SCC et al.

This site is turning around.

For the better in most cases.
I'm not so embarrassed much anymore by juvenile innuendo and back stabbing that seemed to take off out of control this past year.

It seems that people are begining to realize that this is a valid forum for idea sharing, both pro and con, but most importantly others, outsiders, are also begining to read the voices so often in the past ignored. Those are the voices of the professional police officers who are sworn and doing the job and know what's wrong and how to mend.

Finally I see a unification in the undercurrents of this site. What I read is more fact, ideas for improvement, pleas for assistance from outside sources to investigate, (media and others) and good inside information that allows readers not associated with the "system" of the CPD to become familiar with it. All written with the intent to make this a better city and living community.

I'm proud of the CPD and I hope this unity can grow and sustain
progressive efforts.

The build Millenium Park and the Bean at massive cost over-runs...

But there's no money in the budget for a raise for the police.

They sold the Skyway for 2 billion dollars...

But there's no money in the budget for a raise for the police.

They sold Midway Airport for a few billion dollars to a private firm...

But there's no money in the budget for a raise for the police.

They build flowerboxes everywhere the eye can see...

But there's no money in the budget for a raise for the police.

The flowerboxes are maintained by hundreds of illegal aliens working for private companies that donate HUGE wads of cash to da Mare and his cronies for these exclusive city contracts...

But there's no money in the budget for a raise for the police.

They want to move the Childrens Museum (which is usually empty, except for "free" days) to a place where nobody wants it at a HUGE cost to taxpayers...

But there's no money in the budget for a raise for the police.

They're building another useless underground project for tourists by Museum Campus Drive...

But there's no money in the budget for a raise for the police.

They doubled my property taxes, put a big tax on bottled water, raised our sales tax to the highest in the nation and we have the highest taxes on cigarettes and gasoline...

But there's no money in the budget for a raise for the police.



.....and then they wonder why morale on the police department is so low???

Keep it going SCC, your blog has finally made people realize what is truly going on. Although somehow we have to get the REAL truth into the papers. The politicians have kissed the reverends asses and created free reign for criminals in CRook county. Hell I mean damn near every politician in the city and county government should be in federal prison. How many aldermen are affiliated with gangs? Let someone do a special investigation on that. I would venture to guess almost all of south and west side aldermen and getting contributions from these gangs. They have created an environment where fucking the working copper who was just doing his job has become the norm. What copper wants to be sued or fired for doing the right thing? I personally have 2 lawsuits going and both are TOTAL BS. I have a wife, kids and work part time jobs to pay for my house, catholic school tuition and try to do things the right way. Im not risking my family for any ghetto rat anymore. I dont owe the ghetto anything, I OWE MY FAMILY EVERYTHING! Sorry but we have been without a contract for 2 yrs and they continue to look for petty ways to fuck us, and now when they realize that the city is quickly becoming the next detroit they want our help? Not happening here. Im doing my time, showing up, answering my calls and THATS IT! Sorry, thats what they wanted and thats what they got, now enjoy what you created DICK DALEY, U JAGOFF Sellout prick!

If you want police to stop "harrassing" ghetto rats, thats what u got. We will let them run rampant and u can enjoy it! Once my time is done, I will watch from afar (very far) and laugh when i see the city go down! The day Rio wins the olympic bid will be a day of celebration for me.

Lead story in the Hyde Park Herald relates the ticketing of a 60 year old woman for swimming in Lake Michigan off of Promontory Point.

The article reports how it took 3 police officers plus the Chicago Police Department helicopter to remove her from the water in order to issue her a citation.

I have two questions:

1. Is this the only arrest that the helicopter unit responsible for?
2. If the National Guard is assigned to Chicago will the number of arrests for this heinous crime become a part one offense?

How is it possible that Harry Hohm would have a problem with anybody swimming in the lake.....Is it because they didn't bring their car with them? Our esteem helicpoter pilot is the very guy who drove his car into the lake for a swim years ago and now he has a problem with somebody younger then he is taking a little swim....what a fucking stroke!

You know, unlike most of you I don't dislike Weis. I'm a sergeant, with a team, and honestly I haven't been affected by any changes, good or bad. I think Weis is no doubt overwhelmed and maybe he expected a smoother transition into the fighting CPD, but you'd have taken the job too, had that bloated six figure salary been dangling in front of your face. I sure as hell would've taken it, no matter where I was from or what experience I could or couldn't bring to the table.

Sure he's put his mouth in his foot (read: joke you tard) a few times before he got used to the good ol' Chicago way, but give the guy a chance. I know, I know, I'm a douche and a kiss ass, but I don't know the man, or really care to, I got no whack nor will I ever (well, maybe down the road somewhere), so say what you will, let me have it.

I just believe in giving everyone a chance.

NOW, having said that, it gives me goosebumps to see what liberals, lawyers, moronic politicians, liberals, the savage, good ol' Daley, a lame duck FOP and lastly, liberals have done to this city...i.e. setting it on fire and watching it burn. They are truly reaping what they have all sown together.

You want to treat the men and women in blue, who protect this crumbling city day in and day out, like a red headed step-child?? THIS IS WHAT YOU FUCKING GET.

Does anyone here really care that animals are killing each other off?? I most certainly do not. 98% of these ghetto populations hate the police, don't want to see us and are completely content with and love their ridiculous lifestyle of drinking in the streets til 5am every night of the week, banging anything with a pulse, not having a job, busting caps at each other, selling dope, not changing their babies diapers, living in filth, disrespecting each other and most importantly HATING 5-0.

As a 002 district 1st watch officer once told his partner after being woken up because the good sergeant was pulling up..."FUCK 'EM."

That's right, fuck 'em all. Let 'em kill each other off.

Just one more thing, be safe out there. Back your partner up and your fellow officers, no matter what kind of job, if you're close, go. Watch each other's backs and make it to check off....15 after the hour.

In person, both J-TOOL's cranium and SUGARTANK IKE's neckyoke are huge, however, neither J-TOOL or SUGARTANK IKE would allow our representatives to take accurate measurements! So we went to the video tape taken recently in the side room of the City Hall Council chambers!


An analysis of professionally enhanced video, where we took exact measurements and used a precision factored compensator for varying distance from the camera, we found that these two goofs, J-TOOL and SUGARTANK IKE, could both conceivably hold 4 gallons of water, or $1000 dollars worth of twenty-five cent pieces, in their huge cranium and meaty neckyoke, respectively.

Also, not surprisingly, no visual evidence for the use of brain matter was discovered to be displayed by either of the subjects shown in the videotape, J-TOOL and SUGARTANK IKE.

Violence, resentments of the past, greed for power & wealth are steering us into spasms of depression. Politicians wanting to stay permanently in power, leave no place for renewal. An attitude of complacency breeds great instability.

CPD, citizens of chicago are not asking for anything grand, in fact we are like the homeless guy on the street, asking 'for only a dollar.'

United AND organzied, if on this blog is what it takes to put things in motion, it's a start. First of all, STRATEGIES, let's give it its own separate blog and let's start listing what SPECIFIC actions we as a citizens can do to give us that independent voice.
For starters:

1. let's set up specific dates, like earth day, where everyone on the same page (CPD, CFD, STS/SANS, ETC), shuts off their electricity with PUBLIC KNOWLEDGE.

2. do NOT go to any chicago events, CUBS, WHITE SOX, MILLIENIUM PARK, ETC...yeah its a sacrifice but in the long run worth it...Pick specific dates so a message is sent clearly to the powers that be.

3. let's gather at buckingham fountain with our families at least showing mayor midget what families look like...pick specific dates.

4. marches always get attention, leomemorial can film it.

5. Stop going to chicago restaurants.

MONIES, MONIES, MONIES where it hurts...keep it going, more suggestions:

ALSO, lets list not only the salaries of exempts, aldermen, mayor, power players, FOP, etc ALSO list their benefits, pensions etc. Most of us really don't know their whole package SO when they have something to say publicly, we can know some of their motivation.

ANYONE? DOES IT SOUND LIKE A PLAN?

7/18/08.6:20am,

Thanks for that web addy. I never heard of that website.

The corruption of the Daley Machine which we now have is far beyond anything we have seen in several generations. It's spreading to the suburbs to assure another development cash cow that Daley can carve up with no-bid contracts, i.e. the O’Hare expansion. The 2016 Olympics are also in Daley’s no-bid, graft, grand plan scheme.

All our money is going to the Middle East and China to be invested in the infrastructure in those countries at the expense of ours.

I can understand a mayor having to cultivate the limited number of jobs as much as possible.

But to make those jobs available to only a small, connected, incompetent clique, regardless of qualification; and to allow the magnitude of theft that has been going on in this city, that is appalling and it's destroying the city and starting to destroy surrounding suburbs. Daley then sticks it to the rest of us who aren't in the clique with his "Sanctuary City" bullshit vote grabbing as hard working Chicagoians foot the bill for it all.


As a citizen, I'm behind the CPD and the CFD and any other crucial city department holding a work stoppage in protest of the administration of this city, a vote of no confidence in the Mayor and his greedy, criminal stakeholders.

This graft combine is so entrenched; this is how things might have to go in order to get the majority of Chicagoans to de-ass and get rid of Chicago and the Illinois political parties comming together under the "Green Party" politics as it exists now. Or, in the vernacular of Kinky Friedman of Texas, “poly-ticks”..."poly" meaning "many"…and "ticks" meaning "bloodsuckers".

Some of those put in power are immune from elections because their jobs are secured with contracts acquired with the blessing of elected officials who placed them in those positions. I recall Ryan doing that just before he left office for federal prison. So that means, if ever a right-minded person is elected, he is going to be pissing in the wind till those employment contracts expire.

If the city departments that the working people of this city rely on have a work stoppage and the rank-and-file of those departments make it clear the work slowdown/stoppage is a no-confidence protest in the Daley Crime Family, this square dance might come to and end much sooner then later.

There are more of us then there are of them. Eventually they and the families entrenched in government will be eliminated from our government. To get there the shit really has to hit the fan.

Let the city burn. Lance the boil. The city will rise again from the ashes administered by people with better work and ethics.

Sadly, it seems that's our only choice because those who should be doing things about things getting to this point, the FBI and Patrick Fitzgerald and the media seem have there heads up there collective asses or perhaps they are getting a piece of the action so as to get there "share" to look the other way.

My concern is for our families and our safety. Lets face facts this city is not what it once used to be. It is a city jock full of people (i use losely) that are waiting for an oppertunity to evoke anarchy.Our hands off approach coupled with the current regime of thoughtless, ball-less bosses, bad economy = equals a perfect storm!
When Obama loses, or wins (god help ,freedom lovers)this city will be the match that strikes and lights. Observing the "packing" that many of the young soon to be scientists are doing and the "violent" and destructive ways of the black youths in Chicago, for whatever reason, it will be very bad. (the above can be backed up by facts and stats on crime in the United States from 1970-2008 age /gender of offenders)I mean half the department will have to protect precious downtown. Where does that leave our few island neighborhoods?? Better get the army waiting and ready with beat maps.

This is off topic, and perhaps I missed this news in previous postings, but did you see that Mayor Daley has appointed former Fire Commissioner Ray OROZCO as the new Executive Director of the city's Office of Emergency Management and Communications, "OEMC", and named John BROOKS as the new Fire Commissioner. Wait a minute, I thought that WEISS was in charge of OEMC because of his vast knowledge in fighting fires and handling disasters. What happened to WEISS wearing the two hats of Police Supt. and Director of OEMC.
Does WEISS now have to give up half his $310,000.00 salary so that Ray OROZCO can be paid.

7/18/2008 08:54:00 AM

I know the SCUM-TIMES and the FIBUNE are hated, but you have to start reading the news or watching CHICAGO TONIGHT on Channel 11.

WEIS was not ever appointed to wear the two hats of Police Superintendent and Director of OEMC.

He was appointed as the Police Superintendent and the Chief Emergency Management Officer (CEO), which was Cortez TROTTER's old job after he retired from the CFD.

Formerly, technically, and to justify the yearly 300K for WEIS, the heads of CPD (WEIS), CFD (OROZCO) and OEMC (RUIZ) all reported to the CEO, which was WEISS. Odd, but true.

Now, does the current line-up of CPD (WEIS), CFD (BROOKS) and OEMC (OROZCO) still report to the CEO (WEIS)? Still odd, if true.

And remember, WEIS still gets his 300K, which is money from the CPD Superintendent's job and the CEO job. Orozco did NOT retire from CFD and still gets his 180K, which is probably the money sort of shifted on paper from the Director of the OEMC job. BROOKS gets bumped up to 180K as the head of CFD.

So the end all is, WEIS still gets his 300K as the Superintendent of the CPD and as the CEO. RUIZ got kicked out of OEMC and took a hit in pay, but that happened before this most recent bout of musical chairs began. BROOKS gets a pay hike with his promotion to CFD Commisioner, but OROZCO gets it stuck to him. He could have retired from his sworn position and been rehired as the civilian Director of OEMC, thereby having two income sources, but he and the Mayor were insistant that he was NOT retiring from city service in the CFD.

The moral of the story is, MUMBLES can do whatever he wants, for as long as he wants, whenever he wants, however he wants, to whomever he wants, with the absolute authority and power he wants to ensure is maintained for as long as possible, without retribution of any sort, legal or otherwise. The only term limit imposed on him will be by divine authority in the form of a coronary thrombosis, even though U.S. Attorney FITZGERALD has tried and tried and tried to find the finger he could place on MUMBLES.

Prepare to get some manpower back in the districts. The bosses at TRUseless have implemented a 'head a day' rule and those who do not bring in a head for two days straight will be counseled. They screwed those earlier 100 by dumping them to 003, 004, 005, and 006 and now they pull this stunt. You would have to be a moron to put in an application to get there and almost equally as dumb if u were to stay there.

THATS why TRU gets so much crap to begin with... tact and gang guys, at least when I was one, tried our best to come in with one a day... and there was NEVER a two day period with no head... It was a pride thing... we like our job, and that was why we were there. How hard is it to lock someone up when you have 8 hours with ZERO calls? Sounds to me like most of the TRU kids should never have been over there in the first place. Shocking.

Why is the Dept. so messed up ??

Since I been on I've seen

1. Good cops bitched at by bosses for locking up drug dealers because the lazy cops were bitching that these cops were never taking jobs because they were down on arrests all the time.

2. Seen the school patrol disbanded and dumped wherever they wanted.And then crime spring out of control at the schools.

3.Seen Housing offered 10 hour days to get workers..and after three years city takes this away and puts them back on 6 day schedule to f%ck with them...and to top it off ..then they dump them all to sh$t Districts as the final thanks..

4. Seen S.O.S. officers who were some of the hardest workers I knew all get dumped to sh#tholes because of the few asshats that should have been weeded out a long time ago. As if they all were worthless to begin with. Glad these guys have stuck to their guns..they deserved better..and now they can show it.

5. Seen new Super come in and blanket dump tons of good knowledgable bosses to make a statement without really looking into how many of these were the real deal. Hope all these bosses join this cause...

6. Seen Cozzi case...enough said...what a bonehead move... nobodys ever gonna trust you Jodi,no matter what you say ..and we know you are incompetent.We know why your here..and your not one of us...

7.Seen people taken from desk jobs and put on the streets in high crime spots...like they are going to aggressively police..They just got as disgruntled as the rest..

8.Seen tons of officers messed with and denied time for not writing enough movers or curfews..

9.Seen merit promotions without any justification for why these were meritorious selections...other than political clout...and have never really seen anyone promoted meritoriously who was deserving and would have gotten respect from other officers...for a positive example!

10. Seen 100 people dumped from TRU including supervisors to midnights in districts..

11.Seen a mayor bash this department for years in the media along with reverands and alderman.And now they finally wanna tell us they need us..Why ...because now we can communicate all the ways that they messed with us. And now they are scrambling..

12.Seen a certain boss...Tina...messing with the S.S.Irish parade..locking up drinkers...If this doesnt happen at the Biliken parade..then eiter you are a hypocrit or a racist..There shold be plenty of drinkers and pot smokers blatantly ignoring the law in front of officers..or is there a doulble standard at these parades!!!

They never had our backs and now everyone sees it..

6 Day work weeks....Still!!!

Do your jobs and thats all...and let them figure out a way to get our respect back..until then

If your on a tact team and they gonna make you get heads now...let the bangers roam..lock up quality of life only...

Send the message we will be back when they give us repercussions for their past mistakes..

SCC

Well it looks like Nationally the Media has finally taken notice. CNN has been running pieces all day about the Crime inrease in the City. The Blago offer for the Guard and the ISP got their attention. Although we know that the ISP could not afford to send moe then a handful of people to "Help Out" they are so short handed the very thought of it has got to get Daleys Balls tied in a knot.

Fact: for years the patrol division has been struggling to keep the lid on the gargbage can in most South and West side districts. Although that area is steadily expanding they were doing a reasonablly good job, in spite of the incompetent bosses promoted due to affirmative action and political correctness.. Their were still enough competent leaders to protect the workers, supply direction and motivation and continue the struggle against the tide of shit that keep trying to surge forward. It took good aggresive pay attention police work to sort through the daily bull shit and make the arrests that were needed to keep the community on a somewhat peaceful course. Although we never totally won the war we coould contain the trash.

Then along came some bad press, indictments of the SOS renegades and some off duty stupity.

What to do What to do? Dont punish the guilty but screw the rest. Dont listen to the few good leaders still on the Department. look past them and get this Jag Bag J-Fed who knows absolutely NOTHING ABOUT BEING THE REAL POLICE. He was brough in to be a hatchett man and bring fear to the troops to get them in line. Well it looks like he did a great job of it.

The real police in PATROL who are on the front lines every day- around the clock have had it. Guys like Big Bird, One of the laziest ass holes I ever had working for me, When he was a Desk Sgt in 009 are destroying morale. Going after Cozzi after he had been punished sealed your fate with the real men and women who you need to address problems in the district each day. All your bull shit, new cars, big guns blah blah blah arn't fooling anyone you are here to change the culture of the Department we know it, and guess what you have achieved your goal. The culture of work, protecting the citizens has been changed. We are now motorized clerks recording the history of crime in Chicago. The fear of getting jammed up ( self preservation) has taken hold of 90percent of the patrol division. Dont look for an increae in activity to save your sorry ass, it wont happen, All the specialized unit TRU, new SOS wont make a hill of beans difference. What you need is beyond your grasp. The loyalty and detication of the patrol division personnel. Wont happen for you everyone of them can see through your bull shit, Go see Daley , go to the papers, tell them you need more police, tell them you need better radios, cars and a solid contract with protections built in for the police to protect them from BS cr #s. The department ignores the state mandated signed affadavit to lodge a CR # because they want to kiss the reverends ass. In short J-Fed you are through and dont know it. You have promoted incompetent, inexperienced boobs. Jimmy Jackson and Aunt Bea are way over their heads, dont ask them for suggestions they already showed their incompetence on July 3rd. Mayor Daley you wanted this Police Department you got it.

I believe you have misunderstood the editorial writer's (or writers') use of the word "kvetching." I think they are talking about the childish, whiny and backstabbing dialogue that still pervades this blog on a daily basis. This same dialogue, while often entertaining to us, is probably the reason outsiders have not taken us seriously (until lately). Kind of like the whiny complainer at roll call -- no one really listens. If we expect the media and the public to pay attention, we should start articulating our opinions and concerns in a more adult and professional manner.

The Chicago Police Department will quadruple its fleet of gas-guzzling Chevrolet Tahoe SUVs this year -- to more than 200 -- under a contract in the works sure to please Supt. Jody Weis.

Weis has argued that the Police Department's fleet -- 36 SUVs and 2,753 sedans -- is in "horrible" condition and that SUVs make more sense to get through Chicago's winters.

"Anyone doing extra revenue collection now is a fucking rat.We are winning. I cant believe it we are winning.

7/18/2008 01:47:00 PM"


Steady now, steady......

We're not winning YET, just beginning to be felt, like a pebble that's worked it's way into their jackboots, irritating at first, but, if not removed, will begin to bruise the hell out of the bottom of their tender feet.

And as this pebble grows in size, it will become more and more of a problem for them to continue their goose-stepping without feeling the pain, until, eventually, they'll have to try to do something to remove it.

To do that, they'll either have to stop goose-stepping or hop on one leg. Ever try goose-stepping on one leg? So they'll have to stop marching, try to pull off their boots, sitting down on their asses on the side of the road, to remove that now marble sized pebble.

They will then all become sitting targets.

The more little storm troopers that have pebbles in their boots, the longer those pebbles remain in their boots and the larger those pebbles become, the greater the number, of little hitler's soldiers, will be and will have to stop and try to remove those pebbles, thus resulting in many of said soldiers becoming sitting targets squatting on the side of the road.

And what is the difference between a moving target and a sitting target?

The analogy may not be the most elegant, but substitute politics for the road they are goose stepping down, machine party hacks for the soldiers and any/every action/inaction for the pebbles, and you can see how effectively this house of cards that daley's built can come falling down, just because of the affects of what some might think are just a few, small, insignificant pebbles.


All because of the tender nature of the bottoms of their little feet.

The courts are awarding duty-disability over the objections of the medical section. Does anybody know if those on duty-disability are re-evaluated on a regular basis?

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Did you even bother to read the opinion? No, I can tell because I did, but I do thank you for the link. 5 doctors said she could not return to work and the medical section didn’t offer her a light duty position because she was never released from her doctor’s care. The med’s she takes according to GO prevent her from working a light duty position or even carrying her weapon. Even the pension board doctor said she cannot return to work as a police officer.

Blame your pension board trustees for of thousands of dollars of your pension money spent on fighting this case. Oh and by the way all that money goes into Kuglers pocket, the pension boards attorney. You should be asking how much did Kugler charge YOUR PENSION FUND fighting this case. I’ll bet if you checked with the pension board you will find at least ½ a million a year is paid to his firm fighting disabled officers, and he loses the majority! While Kugler is screwing with our disabled officers they are paying their own insurance, about $1000 a month for a family of 4, paying an attorney to fight their own pension board, and if they are lucky enough to get ordinary disability @ 50% 1 for 4 yrs on the job, it’s taxable. Try to raise a family on that!

I don’t know this officer but if she won in the appellate court she had a good case. Screw Kugler! Glad she won. Chalk one up for the disabled PO’s. The pension board is going back to it's old ways. They are letting Kugler run the show, again. I hope all of the elected trustee’s for the active officers get voted out next election in Nov. because not one of them have a set N**ts between them to stand up to Kugler.
Be afraid brothers and sisters in blue, do not risk getting hurt. Let the bad guys run. Not only do you have to worry about the mayor, alderman, and J-FED not backing you up, put the pension board and its elected trustees on that list. If you get hurt on duty you are on your own unless it’s a high profile case or you have juice.

It should also be noted that in 1990 there were NO advanced life support ambulances! Also trauma care and medicine has evolved considerably since 1990.
We should add a column on aggravated batteries with handgun for each year and extrapolate that into live/deceased after shot by year!!!

Hey Media you want to know why the CPD is de-policing?

This piece of shit is harassing a lone female officer into a confrontation while filming her. When she finally confronts him he threatens to call OPS and does on his cell phone. The shitty part about the whole scenario is that IRPA will take that complaint and that officer now has to justify her actions. Change the bullshit complaint system and give us a fair contract and I guarantee you no south side future doctor will challenge a CPD officer like that!!

"Not true only 28% of Chicago voted and yes Daley did get 70%. What is wrong with the rest of these goofs. of course FOP elections only 30% of active PO'S voted.

7/18/2008 05:52:00 PM"


And that 28% who voted were only those who've registered.

How many citizens meet the qualifications for voting and are not registered?

As I understand it, there are only three:

1- A citizen of the U.S.A.

2- 18 years of age or older

3- A resident of the electoral area whose elected offices you're voting on


Not much required, so, how hard can it be for a citizen to register and exercise their right to vote?

Mr. Dardick is the author of the Tribune Article linked to this blog commenting on police work slowing down. I hope one of his counterparts or he himself finds this response. If someone wants to forward it to him or point it out to him, I would appreciate it.


Mr. Dardick,

I have just read your article for the first time. It is written in a manner which appears to accurately reflect comments made by Mayor Daley and Supt. Weis. However, it also immediately proceeds to AGAIN detail why the CPD has been a topic in the news, with particular emphasis of the unacceptable behavior of a few individuals---the exact reason why this article was necessary in the first place! Is it not enough to say that the Department had faced harsh criticism due to the alleged illegal activity of several individual members? Of course not...because...it is much more interesting to spell out the details again while simultaneously justifying why there were so many articles written in the first place!

I do not know if this was your intention, but it appears to me that you had the opportunity in this article to consider the comments from the Mayor, the Superintendent, and Donahue, reflect on them, and yet chose to author an article which does exactly what those who you had quoted requested that you refrain from doing - reiterating the past.

There are 13,500 + police officers, or so I have been told.

The media has twisted the actions of 5 ( And I agree this is 5 too many) into a reflection of the whole.

5 divided by 13,500 = 0.00037%

What does the math tell you?

I am going to continue to do the job I swore to do to the best of my ability. Every Day. I will protect you, your loved ones, my friends and my enemies. I will protect those who can not protect themselves and some who certainly could. AND most importantly, I will continue to live by the law I have sworn to uphold. Without exception. And as disgruntled as my peers and I may be, deep down, we all believe and follow this ethical roadmap despite what our intermediate feelings may reflect in frustration on this and other blogs.

It is articles like yours, Mr. Dardick, that make me continue to feel like I have been "kicked in the nuts" every morning when I enter my squad car. Thanks for today's jolt.

Be well, Sir. My brothers and sisters will continue to be there when you need us despite the fact that you made our collective job a little more difficult today.

off comment, who is trying to dirty up the 019th District tact team by leaving "subtle" hints on SCC? Don't blame Jettner, the fewer arrests the tact team brings in, the less work the detention aid has to do. My guess its the backstabbing lt. on 2nd watch who smells blood if tact. lts. get dumped. He's trying to position himself to get the job.

7/18/2008 11:30:00 AM

That snake will never get the job. He believes po's like him when they constantly make fun of him. He has caused too much trouble with his BS against the 2nd watch capt. not to mention po's. How's the lawsuit going against him? He's done!! Think he had a boulder on him before. Retire already, maybe then they can get people to work 2nd watch.

The courts are awarding duty-disability over the objections of the medical section. Does anybody know if those on duty-disability are re-evaluated on a regular basis?

+++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
Did you even bother to read the opinion? No, I can tell because I did, but I do thank you for the link. 5 doctors said she could not return to work and the medical section didn’t offer her a light duty position because she was never released from her doctor’s care. The med’s she takes according to GO prevent her from working a light duty position or even carrying her weapon. Even the pension board doctor said she cannot return to work as a police officer.

Blame your pension board trustees for of thousands of dollars of your pension money spent on fighting this case. Oh and by the way all that money goes into Kuglers pocket, the pension boards attorney. You should be asking how much did Kugler charge YOUR PENSION FUND fighting this case. I’ll bet if you checked with the pension board you will find at least ½ a million a year is paid to his firm fighting disabled officers, and he loses the majority! While Kugler is screwing with our disabled officers they are paying their own insurance, about $1000 a month for a family of 4, paying an attorney to fight their own pension board, and if they are lucky enough to get ordinary disability @ 50% 1 for 4 yrs on the job, it’s taxable. Try to raise a family on that!

I don’t know this officer but if she won in the appellate court she had a good case. Screw Kugler! Glad she won. Chalk one up for the disabled PO’s. The pension board is going back to it's old ways. They are letting Kugler run the show, again. I hope all of the elected trustee’s for the active officers get voted out next election in Nov. because not one of them have a set N**ts between them to stand up to Kugler.
Be afraid brothers and sisters in blue, do not risk getting hurt. Let the bad guys run. Not only do you have to worry about the mayor, alderman, and J-FED not backing you up, put the pension board and its elected trustees on that list. If you get hurt on duty you are on your own unless it’s a high profile case or you have juice.

7/18/2008 10:07:00 PM



Thank you. After 25 years I receive yet another injury IOD ,that prevented me from using my firearm I can tell you Kugler put me through hell. As soon as they found out I had no juice they sent the big guns after me. missing medical reports from my file from past injuries. Yes boys and girls its hell.also had five doctors including the medical sections doctor. Kugler $$$$$$$$

This city should not get the olympics because the committee will realize that the entire city is run by a corrupt band of know nothing thieves, where promotion is a birthright. Just look at the jobs at the water reclamation district.

Orozco is chief emergency officer, as well as head of OEMC. Weis has emasculated but the taxpayers still have to pay him.

Not true. You are confusing the Chief Emergency Officer (CEO)position as being part of the Director of the OEMC job. Although OROZCO does have an emergency management component in the OEMC, it does not automatically make him the CEO. Odd, but true.

OROZCO is the Director of the OEMC. WEIS is the Superintendent of Police and the Chief Emergency Officer. CFD, CPD & OEMC all report to the CEO, maybe just on paper, but that is the way it is configured by Mayor Mumbles and it is confusing at best.

Do you really believe that just because you are a republican they have the best intrest of the middle class.. that be white or any other race. You are fucken ignorant like most immigrants, worst you have been here for ever & should know better. The TRUTH is that Rich Republicans want immigrants to pay less, they want free trade to acquire goods from latin American (3 world countries)take american jobs away, our Prez. Bush is fighting very hard for this. Also the war is not due to the 9-11, it was for money and power. They dont give a flying fuck about the working class. the die hards dont see the real picture they are blinded by the propaganda they send out about being a true american and following their( RICH AMERICA) objectives. Open your eyes and question there bullshit. Republican party is as worthless as the democratic liberals. Both the rich Democrats and Republicans LIE like any political (DALEY) piece of shit (WEIS). Stand united but be aware of the bullshit dont believe everything even if you want to. Question everything, because everything they promise is dont for their benefit($$$) not us.
