What J-Fed Says?

A bird at 35th Street has this comment:
  • INFO FROM 35TH STREET.......
    yes I admit it, I am an administrative "desk bitch" at 35th street. But before you make fun, I have 20 years on this job and I did do my time on the street (010, 011, SOG). Even though me eye sight is going it seems like my hearing is getting better. I know it doesn't seem like you working coppers who "stopped" working aren't getting under J-Fed's skin....but YOU ARE. So much that J-Fed has been holding "secret" meetings EVERY week since first week in July. I have recently seen "Big bird" and "inspector Brown" attend a few of these "secret meetings"
    J-Fed is FUMING that police officer's have stopped producing...I have heard him screaming these word for word excerpts in the past few weeks from his office:

    *"It's like they are all on strike! What can we do to make these people do there f*cking job"

    *They don't want to work for me because I'm a federal agent then F*ck them all...I will fire EVERYONE on this god-damn department and bring on people that will work!

    *(meeting with Inspector's) "These officer's don't want to work then I want you to start hammering the shit out of all of them district to district...they will get the picture then"

    *"If I have to fire every last one of them before they get the picture ..then I will"

    I think everyone is getting the picture...KEEP UP THE good...I MEAN NO WORK!! The plan IS working and I have seen it first hand. Now Daley is TRYING to fuck with us with this mandatory 3 day NO PAY bullshit....Believe me when Shitcago turns into the next Detroit and we DON'T get the Olympics...then we will have VICTORY. "NO WORK" does NOT mean not backing up fellow officer's so watch each others back and let the City burn.......and Daley and F-fed will be responsible!!!
    .....and for you asshats that are still "PRODUCING" numbers and giving the city REVENUE you are total IDIOTS. And any TRU-TARD that is bringing in the "MANDATORY" (1) head a day are in my book a "puppet". They are making your elite Unit a "make -up" squad for numbers. TRU..(AKA: J-Feds little bitches, AKA: Daley's Cronies) But feeding your heads that you guys are the BEST and the next SOS...and the funny thing is your are believing that B.S.
Is it true? Who knows! Sounds good. Explains much of the disconnect. It's becoming common knowledge that just about every gold star at HQ has issues with J-Fed. Rival camps are beginning to resemble armed fortresses as each attempts to protect their own fiefs from infringement and poaching. The "O.W.Wilson experiment" is failing miserably, and with it, a whole bunch of credibility on numerous levels.

"May you live in interesting times" is an old Chinese saying. We're certainly seeing those recently.

Its not J-FED! its the mayor, this city's politics, the reverands, the media, the incompetent bosses, corupt aldermen , Stoger and crook county, communities that hate us, etc. etc.
I could care less who the super is.
The problems were here way before him and they are just growing.
I feel sorry for j-fed. he didn't know this city's bull-shit like we do (he's not native to Chicago ). he's just treading water trying to keep his head above the water line.

Sorry Jfed, wrong way to attack the problem. You brought it on yourself. We dont trust you. You proved yourself w/ Cozzi. Too Late. Yeah, unfortunately you dont have that power to fire us all. Now punish us like kids with an insepctor. Unfortunatley, I work and when an inspector is around Im "careful" so now you want to punish the workers. Fire us all, good one. Can you say LAWSUITS!!!
You some how believe you have super powers and its gone right to your big head. Get over yourself

Although sightings of Big Bird in 011, 010 & 015 have become slightly more prevalent in the past couple of weeks, I gotta go with my gut...this is yet another troll looking to set the hook. Like everything else, I'll believe it when I see it/witness it first-hand. Nice try, "desk bitch". And if I'm proven wrong, may the Keesing Bandit have his way with me for 3 minutes in a closet.

Answer your calls THATS IT. Write paper for whatever you can. Back each other up. Come clear right away. And if they counsel you for activity ask them what they are basing their numbers on. Then ask them to set up a plan of action that will set you up for success.

meaning....ask them to put in writing what they expect from you on a daily, weekly, and monthly basis.

We are becoming a team boys and girls. Keep up the good no revenue work.

I'd like to see J-fed fire us all. If you answer your calls and give good Police service there isnt a damn thing they can do.

Settle the fuckin contract you idiots. Give us a decent raise. Treat us right and you will get your numbers. If not it will only get worse, HA HA!

JFED NEEDS REAL BOSSES TO LEAD!
JFED NEEDS TO GIVE BACK THE PERKS TO PATROL OFFICERS, HE CAN ASK AROUND AND FIND OUT WHAT THEY R.

HE NEEDS TO KNOCK OFF THE B.S. ABOUT DRINKING AND FIRING PEOPLE.

HE NEEDS TO RESTOCK THE DISTRICT WITH BODIES AND BREAK UP THE SPECIALIZED UNITS.

HE NEEDS TO CUT DOWN ON THOSE DUMB ASS MISSIONS AND USELESS DOC MEETINGS.

HE NEED ORIGINAL IDEAS AND I DONT MEAN WAGONS W/ CAMERAS PULL OUT THOSE FRICKING COLLEGE BOOKS AND GET A CLUE! DO SURVEYS NIMROD ASK THE UNITS WHAT THEY NEED AND DO IT.

As an "outsider", you were given a golden opportunity to bring meaningful reforms to the CPD. You could have minimized, if not eliminated the clout cancer and its stranglehold on the CPD. Instead, you chose to be another lackey for the antichrist himself.

On behalf of thousands of honest, active sworn members of the CPD who understandably fear becoming the victims of First Amendment retaliation, pretextual "disciplinary" harassment and insubordination, consider yourself an an abysmal failure.

Oh, one other message from the troops lest I forget:

Haaa Haaaaaa! What's wrong J-Fart? A little upset because you picked a fight with the "old, fat & out of shape" Chicago Po-lice that you just knew you would win? Haaa Haaaaa! Just like Joe on the corner you get mad and talk shit after a jumbo box o' beat ass arrives with your name on it and postage due like a mofo! Oh so now since your little feelings are hurt you're taking a page out of the charlie williams (aka "that l'il black cracker" because he hated EVERYBODY) "little" book of management and we quote (A) "If repeated false assurance by management to protect field personnel from false accusations of misconduct fails to serve as an inducement to increase work activity, then resort to having inspectors flood the districts for the express purpose of writing up as many in the Patrol Division for petty violations based on rigid enforcement of capricious interpretation of department rules & regulations."

Been there, gone through that J-fart... You have as much substance as a manager and a human being as the contents of a centuries old crypt. we have had some real rotten ass motherfuckers as bosses on this job but most of them could at least see a reflection in the mirror.

Now go home and play daddy to your cats... the grown-ups on the blog have real concerns to address.

I am personally proud of the ability of my fellow officers to clearly and concisely put into writing their thoughts.

Thank You. To all of you

SCC- it is time to revisit your series "Problems Facing the Department" Those were well written, and right on the money in my opinion. Im thinking #9 could be something like "How to make the Department work again" or the "Emasculation of the CPD by society" but upon review of the main page I find that this would actually be a rehashing of problem #'s 1-8.

Want me to start working again? Make ME feel safe, not just physically and financially- now, and in the future. When I retire I would like to know that a pension check, and medical/dental/optical coverage will be there for me and my wife.
AND

Supervisors I can respect. Anybody above the rank of LT is nothing but a JR. politician playing the game. Hoping someday to get promoted, and wear a Gold star. Those who are the good bosses Sgts/Lts/Captains seem to have ONE thing in common. That commonality being a self-awareness that their career has ended at the rank they currently possess.

AND

A Mayorial/Aldermanic admistration with the stones to stand-up to the Rev's or whoever. (My hat was off to J-Fed when he made the statement blaming the parents when that little boy got shot.)

AND
Want traffic enforcement? Fine...No Problem. DeCentralize traffic Court. Split the city into 3 or 4 areas. Make a Traffic court in each of those areas that has parking lots. Wont work? It worked for Kangaroo Court I mean Administrative Hearings.

Big Dream

Cut of the revenue I generate? A bounty on criminal activity- so to speak. Assign a value to Guns recovered, movers, 10% of parkers written all of which is to be paid quarterly? How about issueing me a car that works, PDT that functions correctly, Rifle and Shotgun in the trunk, Radio that has 2 batteries one on charge and one on the radio.

ALOT to ask for. Probably to much.

To Any of Our New "Leaders" That Read This Blog:Address the following issues/questions and you will reclaim your workers:

ISSUE 1:  OUR SAFETY (PHYSICAL)
THE USUAL QUESTION OR ISSUE WHICH COMES UP IS:  How many full-duty, restriction and injury-free officers do we have available to work the street?
THE REALITY:  WE REALLY DO NOT CARE AND IT WOULD MAKE NO DIFFERENCE IF YOU TOLD US THERE WERE 300 or 30000 OFFICERS.   WHAT WE DO CARE ABOUT IS WHEN WE ARE GOING TO A CALL OF SHOTS FIRED, GANG DISTRUBANCE WITH TEN PEOPLE FIGHTING, ETC. AND WE KNOW THERE IS NO OTHER UNIT OTHER THAN OURS RESPONDING BECAUSE EVERYONE IS DOWN ON A JOB ALREADY!  RAP FOR THE LAST SIX HOURS.  WE SEE THE NUMBER OF PEOPLE WE WORK WITH.  UNLESS WE ARE ENVIOUS, WE ALSO DO NOT KNOW OR CARE HOW MANY PEOPLE ARE ASSIGNED ELSEWHERE...WE DO KNOW THERE ARE NOT ENOUGH WHERE WE WORK.
RESOLUTION:  Get us more officers or take your statistics and REALIZE that you are responsible for them. 
____________________________
ISSUE 2:  OUR SAFETY (LEGAL) THE USUAL ISSUE OR QUESTION THAT COMES UP IS:  Boss, will you be there to back us up if we screw up a little, a lot, and DID SO while we did everything we felt and thought we knew to be right?
THE REALITY:  NO RESPECTABLE OFFICER SUPPORTS A CRIMINAL...AND MOST OF US HATE DIRTY COPS MORE THAN ANY OTHER INDIVIDUAL CAN POSSIBLY IMAGINE.  BUT, JAMMING A PO FOR A SINGLE NON-CRIMINAL, POOR DECISION IS UNACCEPTABLE.  WE SEE THIS AND CONTINUE TO SEE THIS.  WE SEE SUPERVISORS DEMANDING AGGRESSIVENESS WITH THEIR MOUTHS AND SUSPENDING US WITH THEIR HANDS IN SPARS AND CRS.
RESOLUTION:  BE THERE FOR YOUR TROOPS WHEN THEY ARE CHALLENGED BY CITIZENS AND HAVE MADE THE RIGHT CALL, BUT ALSO WHEN THEY MADE A MISTAKE AND IT CAN BE EASILY AND INFORMALLY CORRECTED.  COUNSEL THEM INFORMALLY ON WHAT THEY DID WRONG AND WHAT THEY CAN/SHOULD DO BETTER....NOT IMMEDIATELY JAM THEM WITH DISCIPLINARY PROCEEDINGS.  QUIT SETTLING LAWSUITS WHICH CAN BE FOUGHT AND LIKELY WON IN COURT.ENFORCE THE SWORN AFFIDAVIT BILL.
___________________
ISSUE 3:  OUR MONEYTHE USUAL QUESTION OR ISSUE THAT COMES UP IS:  Why no contract?  Why not respond in the media?  Why this and that...and we still do not have a contract.
THE REALITY:  All we want is a good faith, efficient negotiation. Tell us that negotiations are ACTUALLY happening and we will likely be more understanding. Still, it is about that time to take it to arbitration.

RESOLUTION:  The City must negotiate...in a reasonable time frame.  The lack of meetings is the most disturbing.  What do the negotiators do the rest of the time they are not meeting with the FOP to work on the contract?  MEET AND MOVE FORWARD, or continue to recognize that any criticism being taken by the City is ABSOLUTELY JUSTIFIED.

_________________
ISSUE 4:  MERITTHE USUAL QUESTION OR ISSUE THAT COMES UP IS:  What is merit?  Clout = Merit...etc.

REALITY:  WHOEVER HAS CLOUT WILL USE IT AND THOSE THAT COMPLAIN ABOUT IT SIMPLY DO NOT HAVE IT.  I DON'T HAVE IT...BUT SURE WISH I DID.  THERE ARE EXCEPTIONS TO THIS POINT OF VIEW...BUT VERY FEW CAN LOOK IN THE MIRROR AND BELIEVE THEY ARE THE EXCEPTION.

RESOLUTION:  PROMOTIONS ARE FOR LEADERS.  TESTS ARE NECESSARY AND ARGUABLY THE FAIREST METHOD TO SELECT LEADERS...BUT DO THEY DEFINE A "MERITORIOUS" LEADER?  IN MOST CASES...NO, THEY DO NOT.  ANYONE WHO TAKES THE DETECTIVE, SERGEANT, OR LIEUTENANT EXAMS STUDIES FROM DOCUMENTS THAT THEY WILL HAVE AT THEIR FINGERTIPS WHEN THEY EVENTUALLY NEED TO CHECK SOMETHING OUT IT THE FIELD.  MEMORIZING WHO TO NOTIFY FOR AN AGG BATT DOES NOT MAKE YOU A LEADER.  BEING ABLE TO DIRECT THIRTY PEOPLE TO DO WHAT THEY NEED TO DO AT A MULTIPLE AGG BATT SEEN DOES.  MERIT SHOULD BE DRAWN FROM EXAMPLES OF LEADERSHIP AND REAL LEADERS ARE OFTEN THE WORST TEST TAKERS ON THE PLANET...CHECK YOUR HISTORY BOOKS.   ESTABLISH A PROTOCOL TO DEFINE LEADERSHIP AND STICK TO IT IN ASSESSING MERIT PROMOTIONS. IF YOU PROMOTE LEADERS, EVEN THOSE WHO DID WELL ON EXAMS WILL BE MORE ACCEPTING OF MERIT SELECTIONS BECAUSE THEY WILL SEE THE LEADERSHIP POTENTIAL OF THE INDIVIDUAL.


WITHOUT AT LEAST SOME OF THE ABOVE BEING ANSWERED, THE DISENCHANTED WILL CONTINUE TO INCREASE IN NUMBERS AND SUPPORT.

I really don't get it. These bosses cannot possibly be that fucking dumb. How is getting gigged by an inspector supposed to motivate us again?
Here, I will spell it out once again, and this time have some house mouse show you how to print the list for safe keeping.

1. We don't need you when we are right, we don't expect you to be there for us when we are wrong. WE NEED TO SEE AND HEAR YOU BACK US UP IN THAT GREY AREA.

2. We need you to say "GIVE THESE GUYS A CONTRACT."

3. Fix this bullshit C.R. system.
Maybe even tell the State to start prosecuting the liars who sign affidavits.

4. Have some balls and tell these aldermen and revrends to fuck off!

5. Promote some bosses who will be leaders. ALL THESE PEOPLE ARE MANAGERS. CLEAN HOUSE--we know it was all Daley's doing-- AND GET US SOME REAL LEADERS!!!!!

I can guarantee if those 5 were done you would be hearing RAVES from the masses. Send out the goons-Big Bird & Co., and you'll see a slowdown like never before.

People are already thinking it and some are actually seeing it...

The "subversive committee" is fully operational. Various factions are aligning people in their camps and negotiating with other factions while they carve up the carcass of CPD.

Although the planning has been in progress, plotting who is going to run things after J-Fed is gone, it appears they are really stepping up their game plan. Perhaps the schedule has been accelerated?

J-Fed has lost the confidence of not only the working minions of this Department, but also of the (competent) gold stars. Morale is so destroyed, on so many levels, that it will be impossible to restore under a J-Fed superintendency. He probably knows it too.

Knives are being sharpened and a mutiny from the top will follow in short order. Nothing overt mind you - that is not the style of the subversive committee. ;-)

The competent bosses, God willing, who care enough to rebuild the CPD are already establishing alignments (or will soon be forced to). Look around and see... The more savy bosses are already padding the bunkers and setting up their people on point.

Spies, scouts and agent provocators surround us in all areas and at all levels. Dysfunction and disinformation are the order of the day, while chaos envelopes the city.

To vocalize (even in "secret" meetings) that there is a "strike" or refusal to perform a sacred duty once again shows his ignorance of who the warriors in blue are and what they stand for.

The warriors in blue are still here. They have not fled and will fight when provoked. The warriors are smart and wise. They are just hunkered down in a strategic maneuver to avoid the "friendly-fire" from the cannons at 35th St and the 5th floor of City Hall. The warriors are fully intact, ready for action, awaiting only the orders from real leadership... leadership that is competent, trustworthy, and just.

Can you hear the drums? They are beating louder and louder. They're coming... closer and closer... as their numbers swell. There is no stopping them now.

j fed has a big ego.
this situation is not totally about him.
cpd cannot police as effectivly as we used to due to several factors.
morale is extremly low for many reasons.
j fed is only a small part of the problems cpd faces and mainly due to his lack of understanding the organization and it's relationship with the city.
hey j fed, can you name all the commanders you were told to place yet ?
my advice: go to a few watch parties and have a no shitter with the working police.

J-Fed is definitely part of the problem but it started long before him! J-Fed what you did to Cozzie truely showed who you are and no one will ever work for you or trust you PERIOD!!! The city fucking with us and low-balling us every time our contract expires has finally worn thin and the guys have had it. Don't you fools get it?
It's not just about the money it shows how the city really feels about the job we do time after time!!! Wake the fuck up, it's a no brainer!!!
There is no trust in the leadership and hasn't been for a long time. It has just reached a boiling point now and the scary part is it will get even worse. We all know the bosses will ask us to do things they would never do and it's even riskier in todays climate. There's nothing you can do J-Fed, but getting a slightly decent contract would be a start! I know this is out of your hands, but we have been treated like shit by the city for a long long time now and most of us have had it! P.S. stop wearing our fucking uniform you are not the police! Now go consult your five year wonder "eye candy" in your "think tank group" about what to do!

How about J-Fed look at the REAL numbers. Look at the calls for service, the daily back-logs, the denied lunches,sex offender checks, weather-related-well-being checks, dogs barking, the school officers, The Beat team meetings, the CAPS meetings, school dismissals, basketball tournaments, etc.???

They disbanded the school patrol, but still assign officers to the schools why CPS has security. They have the summer basketball tournaments and assign officers why the Park Dist has security. Why isn't TRU when assigned to a district, handled as personnel for that assigned dist, and given calls for service?? Why aren't data entry personnel entering case reports or the citations in the system???

Keep piling it on, but somehow become enraged when the same results are not achieved.

It's the shell game, regardless to what name you give the mission today, tomorrow or the next; and it always beats you in the end!!!!


It's totally amazing they've been double counting for so long they actually believe those numbers.

Until the backlogs are seriously reviewed and written up on the watch commanders log, and documented more than by the dispatchers, perhaps then someone will take a genuine look at the shortages.


"The days of riding around are over...." those days haven't existed since the 80's.

Perhaps every single officer who was denied a lunch because of the backlogs started putting in slips, perhaps then they'll take a look.

Or perhaps, do away with mandatory appearance at traffic court. Heck the majority of the cases are dismissed. My all time favorite was the guy who was involved in an accident, and issued a citation for having NO drivers license stood before the court, other party not present so the judge said "your case is dismissed, please drive safely and have a good day".

H-E-L-L-O, what are we writing the tickets for anyhow with that as the penalty. Count how many officers actually testified at traffic court minor rooms. We're not needed, and it's a total waste of manpower, time and city funds. However, major room cases should be mandatory appearance, but they don't really need us there any other time.

Perhaps take an accounting tickets issued -vs- cases dismissed -vs- tickets where fine imposed . Ah, those would be some lovely numbers. If my misdemeanor key is court sergeant to handle why can't traffic tickets be as well????

Oh well, I could go on and on, but will hand my soap-box over ... next

That comment isn't too far off from what I've heard from my friends down at HQ. I use to be there, enough on that!

J-Fed will never understand why the police won't work for him. I can't believe he just doesn't get it: we don't respect you!! Can't you see that, or are your handlers telling you that the rank and file love you? Which is it? Guess what, we can't stand you. If you would actually do some good for the department and the city we would like you, but you haven't. You dumped bosses that shouldn't have been dumped; you fucked Bill Cozzi and showed your true colors by turning him over to your ass clown buddies in the civil rights units. Get it yet..probably not.

You surrounded yourself with people who are loyal to the Mayor, not you. Just because you were a Federal Agent, do you think that we have to automatically bow down and kiss the ground you walk on? Does it? All you FBI guys suffer from the same thing: a disconnect between your balls and brians. You can't chew gum and walk at the same time, so how are you guys suppose to think.

You dumped qualified people from HQ and now you are getting what you deserve. What goes around comes around and you are getting what you deserved!! This city is burning and you can't put the fires out fast enough.

Translation:

I really really need you guys to be aggressive. That way when Joe files a bogus beef against you, I can have you stripped & fired so that it looks like I'm earning my keep in the war on the police. It looks bad when I can't fire any of you like I promised the mayor & the reverends I would. Come on guys, have a heart... you can have your job back in 2 to 5 years after you sell your house and cars at a loss to pay the lawyers fees... you won't have to pay that high tuition sending your kids to private schools, besides they'll be the "real honor students" when you have to send them to public schools. Yes we know Joe is full of shit but we just can't have people arrested for for filing a false complaint now can we? Why do you guys insist so much on being treated fairly? Why can't you be satisfied with an approximately 25%percent erosion of purchasing power? After all, you do live in the greatest city in the country. Besides, soon we might even mandate that all department and other city employees must purchase their consumer goods within the corporate boundaries of the city. Yes we know that may be illegal but we along with your bargaining unit have reached consensus that you have no real rights that we are truly bound by home rule to respect. Now will you please get back to aggressive policing? We need to suspend and fire some of you to make up some of the budget shortfall... thanks for your cooperation.

A car in our district used to come in every single day with 20 parkers, that was their thing, for years. Since all this bullshit with J-fed and the city trying to control our lives on AND off duty, they've had enough. Zero's every day now. Now that's just one car, but think about it. 20 parkers times, say $75 a ticket = $1,500 a day. So the city is losing $547,500 a year from just this one car alone. That's a lot of dough. And this is going on all over the city. All this revenue the midget was counting on is not going to be there. We've been pushed around for way too long now. It's finally nice to see us start pushing back.

Steroid rage can be a terrible thing!

And these is nothing an inspector can do about not making arrests unless it is warranted.

What is the inspector going to do... stop a squad and say... hey there is people selling dope over there and you didn't arrest them? Give me a break.

What J-Fed hasn't figured out yet is that nobody ever gets in trouble on this job for doing nothing. Cops get in trouble when they interact with the public and try to do work. Your not going to step on your tail when your sitting on it!

Very easy to solve the problem. What causes cops to de-police? Being fucked with. One percent raises that are meant to be insulting, screwing cops on beefs when they do work (not to mention rewarding shit birds by paying them out after they fuck with the cops,) double starndards as the norm.

Fix a few of those problems and stop acting like the cops are stupid pawns. You have some intelligent blue shirts out there. Treat them the way they should be treated and back them up instead of playing politics and sticking it to them every chance you get to make some stroke politician happy or appease some criminal reverend.

Will it happen? No. So keep trying to screw cops and keep getting what you're getting. Oh, and no one cares that someone is, or was, a fed. We know they don't do shit in this town anyway.

Dear "desk bitch",
I for one appreciate your 20 plus years of service to the citizens of Chicago. I also appreciate the fact that you served many of those years on the streets in west side districts and SOG. I have no disdain for your present position at Headquarters.
I do however take exception with your views on the copper who happens to be assigned to TRU.
According to you there is some kind of organized work stoppage being adhered to by the rank and file. I think everyone is getting the picture...KEEP UP THE good...I MEAN NO WORK!! The plan IS working and I have seen it first hand. There is no organization to it. The morale of the working copper has been beaten down by the media, by the department and by the politicians who appease certain interest groups.
The lawsuits, the negative press, the lack of a contract, the patronage and the hiring of a former FBI agent as superintendent has created an atmosphere where there is no desire to police. I have been saying for the last few years that the citizens of Chicago are going to get the police department that they asked for.
Violent crime is up and gun recoveries are down. Many other measures of police activity are also down. The one measure that you can not quantitate is morale, and that I'm afraid is at an all time low. Fix the morale and I guarantee all the other measures of activity will rise as well.
As for TRU, their "one head" a night isn't the activity that is having the desired affect on crime. Not one red penny is generated by these arrest. If anything they are costing money and maybe down the road some serious cash in lawsuit settlements. So I seriously doubt that there is anyone delusional enough to believe he is "elite" because he locks up a 55 year old drinker. They are required to show that kind of activity to justify their remaining in the unit. What do you do to keep yourself in the spot you have?
What truly amazes me is you defensively admit you're a 35th st "desk bitch" and worry about all the shit you're going to take, but you in turn shit on another group of policemen that you probably never have had to deal with. Be original and form your own opinions, don't rely on others to form it for you.

Holy topic of conversation Batman!!!

Got water cooler fatigue?

Imagine for a minute an old man in Scotland or a refugee in the African Sudan reading on their laptop screens intimate details about who, how and why the Chicago Police Department operates. Details provided of police corruption, independent whistle blowing, extreme fraud, political hiring and promotional shenanigans.

A phenomenon in American Pop Police Culture. Poor old school exempts and politicians are flabbergasted...frozen to the point of speechlessness in dealing with this form of international communication.

Sharing in lively conversations about depart[mental] politics, noticeably a pattern is recognized, your average Joseph and Josephine are more inclined to admit they read the SCC blog. On the other hand your typical exempt jackass will ignore this topic responding with an arrogant remark. That exempt holoblog denier...cannot lie themselves out of a flash of embarrassment appearing in the comment box exposing their professional corruptions.

Da mayor and J-Fed haven’t held anyone at a command level responsible for the Special Operations or Internal Affairs for the SOS scandals yet? Maybe they think it will improve moral by protecting these disgraced soldiers who allowed their units to tarnished the badge through their mismanagement. Do you think for a minute that just maybe they could have stop it? Do we reward commanders for looking the other way while rogue police underlings committed criminal acts right under their noses?

J-Fed ridiculously praises them publicly at council hearings. Perhaps another political promotion is awaiting for that disgraced exempt as an award for their negligence. If it wasn’t for the corrupt system our exempts and career politicians created and support our department might not have had a need to hire characters like J-Fed making $930,000.00? Apparently this city isn’t that broke to give away money to ex-fed clowns. And what do we know about those sweetheart jobs J-clown gave to all his male white ex-FBI buddies to work for CPD?

J-Clown is well versed dealing with the media, listen carefully little white lies do pop out from time to time. He’s only human...what does a man say when he walks barefooted in the dark and steps right into a pile of warm dog shit? Two weeks ago the Police and Fire Committee made at least one thing perfectly clear to J-Fed. Fix it!

Can J-Fed put that square peg into the round hole?
He can’t deliver a labor agreement!
He can’t even keep his promises made at those meetings?
He can’t even demote a corrupt exempt!
What are we getting in return for hiring him? Nothing!

So how many times did you have to tell some fuckin’ idiot to get off the corner before he ended up shot?

She then pulls up their car on the computer and checks to see if they were down on what they claim on their to-from. Total bullshit. C.W. pulling the same shit in 021 that caused so many good officers to leave 005. Not only should she have been in the pokey, but she keeps her job and is promoted to the rank of Capt. in the C.P.D.

We have rights and collective bargaining agreements! Take everything to arbitration and NOT let this J-FED fool have any say!

Blah! Blah! Blah! A bunch of hot air for $310,000 a year! Then the city taxpayers wonder why the city is going broke!

You want activity, you will get one activity and that is handle my radio assignments! All I have to do is handle my jobs and you can't say shit about it. I get all of my activity off of the radio assignments only! Nobody can't say I'm NOT working because I handle my jobs and that's it!

We don't have Ticket or Arrests Quotas here people! Don't let these pussy ass, clout driven bosses tell you otherwise!

In fact, "Any Quotas" or "Numbers game" that bosses want to play have been ruled illegal by the U.S. Supreme Court, if you would have read your law books in school, P.P.O. J-fed!

In fact, Citizens have won lawsuits because of the Quota issues! So all you are doing in the long run is costing the City lawsuit money!

Then I don't even want to get into the "out of contract issue" that Feds are NOT used to dealing with! That is a subject for another topic all by itself!

A car in our district used to come in every single day with 20 parkers, that was their thing, for years. Since all this bullshit with J-fed and the city trying to control our lives on AND off duty, they've had enough. Zero's every day now. Now that's just one car, but think about it. 20 parkers times, say $75 a ticket = $1,500 a day. So the city is losing $547,500 a year from just this one car alone. That's a lot of dough. And this is going on all over the city. All this revenue the midget was counting on is not going to be there. We've been pushed around for way too long now. It's finally nice to see us start pushing back.

Hey Donahue..don't even talk to the papers like we would even consider this pay cut and days off..you stupid fuck..the answer is NO, and I don't care if the whole city goes up. Take the money from the public schools, it is not put to good use anyway.

Police officers in this city will not be taking days off without pay, and will NOT be taking a pay cut, so GO FUCK YOURSELVES. We have been getting our pay cut since the beginning. Pay us the percentage that the aldermen (part-time job) and the mayor get for 4 years (i.e. 32% raise which takes effect immediately and not in increments!!)
How the hell does an alderman get over 100 grand for a part time job? Plus an expense account?

If this is true [i](I'm leaning toward yes at this point)[/i] - we, collectively need to circle the wagons closer. This is going to get a lot worse... soon.

Daley has his Olympics to think about [i](I hope someone far more eloquent than I is swamping their e-mail box daily with the BS going on here)[/i]. I'm sure he's spittin' nails right now too. How DARE we buck against his wishes? CPD is the least of lil Dickeys' worries right now, but we ARE the pebble in his shoe making his life ever more difficult as he is seeing his kingdom crumbling around him.

I (& many others) have said for several months now - they [b]CANNOT[/b] make us be pro-active! End of story. Don't know about where everyone else works but I'm fairly confident it's the same, the Urban Plight doesn't 'serve' when I'm rollin' by, they hide their cups/bottles when they see me. [i]What narcotic sales? I didn't see anyone drinking.[/i]

J-Fed is merely a figurehead. He essentially isn't the problem here. Daley is. In a small way, I almost feel sorry for Jody. He could have done a lot of things to show he was concerned about CPD. He could have made the attempt (even though an outsider) to spend time learning about this job and what we do. He could have learned some of the legal aspects of our jobs and the joke of our court systems. He could have made himself appear to be less a puppet (despite the truth we all know) and been more involved with the 'troops', as it were. Instead, he has set himself apart from us and made himself a laughing stock of our department.

Send in Big Bird. I could care less, my uniform is in order, as is my personal car and squad. He can't make me 'clear corners', he can't make me set up to grab the dealers.

Nothing is going to change until Daley is out of office. Plain and simple. J-Fed could be dumped tomorrow and it doesn't mean anything. If anyone had any doubt as to the micro-managing of Daley need only to look at J-Fed to see the reality.

It's time for the Mayor and his little minions (aldercreatures) anarchy to topple and fall. The time is coming. And when it does, and a competant, semi-honest City Hall is in place things will hopefully improve. And when it does CPD will once again be the hard-working, impressive department it's meant to be.

Until then? We weather the storm. They tried soft-talking us, they tried 'meetings', they are now threatening, denying time due requests. Not much else they can do. Take away 'our' cars? Split partners? Go ahead. We, CPD are finally ALL on the same page. From PPO's to Old Timers. We aren't 'on-strike'. We are saving our asses from being the next Cozzi. When you make an enemy of your police, you better DAMN sure to make friends of your felons.

Billiken, Obama, Olympics.... all loom on the horizon. The City and Command Staff will be looking to us, their mules to make them look good. We've done it for years. NO MORE! Get it Richie? J-Fed? We have saved Daleys ass for years by doing what WE do best, be the police and prevent the savages from taking over your flower-box city. NO MORE!! We will be at your stupid events because we have to. We aren't laying hands on ANYONE! Let the whole world see what a joke you've made this city. We aren't saving you anymore.

Please,you have to be kidding,every copper on the job knows a handful of good guys that got shafted. These incidents leave a lingering sentiment with us.

We will fully comply with what you wanted,answer our jobs and back our fellow officers...

J-Fed, I hope you read my comment; at your first town hall meeting at 35th street you were asked why you went after Cozzie. You stated that the media sent you a clip of the incident and they awaited a response from you. So as we all know now, you threw Cozzie under the bus wheels.

You responded to the media. That was your first mistake in this matter. THE MEDIA DOES NOT RUN THE C.P.D. You showed no leadership. Why couldn't you have just left it alone?

The media only showed the public what they wanted them to see, not the entire incident from the beginning. He was a drunken goof, not some crippled guy that Cozzie dumped out of the chair.

As far as these posted lead comments, I also work at 35th street after 25 years of patrol division beat car duties. I must say, you are not a nice person when it come to even saying hello to officers as we/us pass by each other in the hallway or at the entrance to the building.

So keep up being an asshole, don't unpack all your moving boxes just yet, the best is yet to come.

The Mayor wants the non-union people in the city to start working 1-3 days without pay then he wants it to apply to all the union workers. Yeah right!! I don't think so. If FOP Union 7 sleeps with the enemy and agrees to this then fuck you too.

We wouldn't be $400 million in the red if it wasn't for Daley's uncontrolable spending. He has a hole in his pocket and keeps spending and spending, all on stupid shit. He needs to get his head out of his ass and get his priorities straight.

This city also keeps catering to the low income or no income criminal non tax paying communities. They keep "demanding" more more more and Daley's knee's buckles and gives it too them, no questions asked meanwhile the tax payers suffer.

They better get us a contract, a good one, soon. If they try fucking with our retro or try giving us a 1 to 2-1/2% in the front and continue to fuck us with the remaining 3 years percentage wise, they are in for a rude awakening. They think the police are so called laying down now, shit just you wait and see.

A car in our district used to come in every single day with 20 parkers, that was their thing, for years. Since all this bullshit with J-fed and the city trying to control our lives on AND off duty, they've had enough. Zero's every day now. Now that's just one car, but think about it. 20 parkers times, say $75 a ticket = $1,500 a day. So the city is losing $547,500 a year from just this one car alone. That's a lot of dough. And this is going on all over the city. All this revenue the midget was counting on is not going to be there. We've been pushed around for way too long now. It's finally nice to see us start pushing back.

It doesn't matter! Their numbers are being replaced by red light cameras and meter maids. The meter maids get dropped offed in vans in areas where people actually pay their tickets. So even if we stop writing the tickets the money is being made and written by machines and meter maids.

But now, i just drive by all those parkers... and the public knows it too. I must see at least 20 parkers in a night now, but i just drive right by them.

Per G.O. the a sample of the liquor must be inventoried. How often is the liquor poured into a little vial and inventoried? If you can even find one in any of the districts. This also goes for tact and gang teams during sweeps when the bosses say don't worry it, just dump it out. When the lawsuit is filed the bosses will deny telling you disregard the G.O. and that is what the city uses to hammer people!

When big bird and the other whore inspectors start lagging you, do what a notorious retired patrolman in 9 did several years ago. The inspector confronted him near the station for something, then told him he was writing him up. Took his name and star. The inspector then got into his vehicle, made a U turn and left. The Patrolman got into his squad turned on the mars light and stopped the inspector. The inspector said what do you want? The patrolman said your drivers license, you just made an illegal U turn. The inspector finally decided not to write the infraction.

5.) never expect your police to violate the first ammendment (we signed) agreement per Daley.
No stops without probable cause. No profiling.

Some suggestions to get "the Men and Women working again:

- Indemnify all legit police ACTIONS and RESPONSES contrary to the news media and public/Reverends reactions. In other words "Back us and not Strip us" because THEY say we are BAD!

- Go Easy on Cozzi and Bring him back....Was what he did that bad that ruled a FEDERAL INDICTMENT! He was punished already...PERIOD!

- You want AGRESSIVE POLICE then BACK AGRESSIVE POLICEMEN! The punitive reaction outweighs the rewards now! Officers out here feel that everything is a SET UP because the Department does not TRUST US!

- PAY US appropriately.....COST OF LIVING is killing ALL of the officers especially those with FAMILIES! (This may be a reason some officers do side jobs and ignore police work because they can't afford to sustain the kids tuitions, normal living in a good neighborhood, taxes, mortgage payments etc. etc. (This may also be the reason some officers GO BAD!)

- 6 day work weeks!
(WE ARE BURNT OUT) The AGRESSIVE offiers for years SAT IN COURT on their DAYS OFF as well as the whole work week...Further burning us out! Then there are those "DOGS" that may get cynical of those that sit in court (either jealous of the overtime $ they make or the type of quality arrests others were making etc. and then they think those that DO are corrupt. Basically, they feel, How are they getting all those GOOD arrests? What are they ACTUALLY doing out there? I don't want to wok with them and then the RUMORS start!

-Re do the promotional process.
Some can argue it should be based on tenure or time on and background and maybe interviews as well as resumes rather than some GOOFY TEST!

-The "DOGS" seem to have always lasted longer with less trouble and less attention and less stress. Those that carried the City with AGGRESSIVE numbers were always on BIS or PERSONNEL CONCERN or on the IAD or OPS radars or even at the minimum their Commanders radar as a concern. BUT THEY PRODUCED!

-The ANIMALS on the streets that are real THREATS to society NEED to be treated as ANIMALS! Meaning that EVERYONE nowadays NEEDS to be on board if they are to be hammered, including all our personnel, the JUDGES the STATES ATTORNEYS! GOOD LUCK WITH THAT AFTER ALL THIS NEGATIVE PRESS!

- I could go on and on and I am sure that others may add to this but one last thing:

TAKE DOWN ALL THE FUCKING CAMERAS...

Turn the fuckers off and Call off the DOGS that are trying to ruin all our CAREERS!

Although I tend to side with the poster who thinks this is a troll post, the content is representative of what JFed and other clueless exempts and politicians are thinking.
In reality the current situation is a culmination of ingredients in a recipe for disaster.
Preventive police work used to be done in what appeared to be gray areas. We knew who the bad guys were and we went out and did what we had to do to get them. However, to Joe Public we were just ham fisted thugs who were violating people's rights. We were told we needed to change and it was made very clear that we were going to get fucked if we were caught operating in the margin. This was the purpose of bringing in Jfed, was it not? The arrest was replaced by the event number because of what these gold stars read in some police management manual.

Now, coppers are just doing what most departments do and policing within the strictest guidelines of the law. The cell phone camera has insured that we aren't giving the media, reverends and bosses seeking a pat on the head from Daley any ammo to ruin our lives. Its done, get over it. All the threats in the world will not stop the inertia of the snowball that all of you genius policy makers have pushed over the edge of the mountain. Aggressive policing equals more chances to step on your dick and we have been told/shown that if we step do step on it we are fucked. No one is willing to risk prison or bankruptcy for the furtherance of the career of Bea Cuello or Jody P. Weis, period!

Please make this a post all its own, in todays Sun Times, 31 July 2008 page 15,FOP president Mark Donahue is quoted as saying. "If the city can convince my members of the dire necessity of such a move, the membership would be willing to listen." "They'd be willing to consider anything the city can convince them is necessary." This was in response to the Mayor's suspension of non-union pay raises and mandatory forloughs. I do not believe he has the right to speak for all the members and I am sure you could not find one that agrees with him! Call the union and voice your anger, this includes the Sergeants, Captains, and Lieutenants, the consequences of such action will set a precedent. The city at the very least NEEDS police and fire protection. If this were to happen noone would able to repair the damage done to this department.

Dedicated coppers will play this game because we believe in somthing higher. The kind of copper these fools have now created will just keep driving because, "I didnt see them do anything to justify the stop".

I keep on driving now. If they want it legit then Im going to give it to them legit. 100% legit!

They are just hunkered down in a strategic maneuver to avoid the "friendly-fire" from the cannons at 35th St and the 5th floor of City Hall. The warriors are fully intact, ready for action, awaiting only the orders from real leadership... leadership that is competent, trustworthy, and just.

Can you hear the drums? They are beating louder and louder. They're coming... closer and closer... as their numbers swell. There is no stopping them now."

Recipe for Disaster:

Here is how it happened:

* Phat Phill gave Daley b.s. stats.

* Daley believed that crime was down.

* Add in Corey Flagg, Abbatte, SOS, Jeff Tap. anti-police media apply pressure. it seems that the police are the problem.

* Phill knowing better runs for hills.

* Daley interviews all the Deputies to see which one would be willing to cram it up the Blue Shirt's ass. All of the Deputies know better, refuse.

* Daley gets mad since he brought them all so far and now they turn on him, retires the top, most experienced Deputies.

* Enter J-Fed. The Whistleblower killa. Slick operator that he is, cons Daley into his harsh anti-police stance.

* J-Fed sicks his boys after Cozzi. CPD Morale crumbls. Crime spikes. Daley yells at J-Fed. J-Fed attacks more Blue Shirts. CPD morale crumbles further. Crime spikes more. Daley yells at J-Fed again. Repeat ad nauseum.

THE HARSH REALITY:

This is not a strike or a blue flu. This is the new reality. This is the new CPD. The law suits were bad enough, but now they have cameras up our ass??!! Even IF we wanted to go back to Old School, we cannot. Take your inspectors and shove them. The tooth paste cannot go back into the tube.

PREDICTIONS:

J-Fed fired by the end of the year. Daley convinces a mid-level Gold Star to take over, probably black. Nothing changes.

Not to toe the company line here, but you ARE in a unit, presumably because you chose to go there. You have no calls, no jobs, and 8 hours to eat and get a pinch. Maybe things have changed a whole lot over the last few years, but it used to be that guys in units tried to get a pinch EVERY DAY--- THAT'S WHY THEY WERE IN UNITS!!!!! To make arrests! Stop crying, bid to a district, and take your 2 year wonder ass to mids..... What's next, the traffic unit up in arms becuase they have to write movers? the caps office revolts because they have to go to caps meetings? Waaaaa Waaaa Waaaaa you are there by choice..... leave.

If my misdemeanor key is court sergeant to handle why can't traffic tickets be as well????

---------------------------------------

The answer is rather obvious...

When YOU issue someone a traffic citation, YOU are the complainant (unless there is someone else listed as a witness). Even if there is a witness, YOU are the individual signing the complaint (citation). Consequently, YOU are required to appear in court.

What the judge chooses to do in court has no bearing on YOUR responsibility to appear as the complainant.

Having said that...

I completely agree, that sitting in traffic court and watching case after case dismissed is an exercise in infuriating futility.

The solution is also obvious...

STOP ISSUING CITATIONS!!!

HOMELAND INSECURITY
FBI bureaucrats
got top bonuses
Special agents running field offices
passed over for annual cash awards

Posted: June 06, 2002

© 2008 WorldNetDaily.com

WASHINGTON – Foul-ups by FBI officials here have become so common that even street agents are poking fun at their once-hallowed bureau, saying it now stands for "Famous But Incompetent."

Yet, over the past five years, headquarters has showered top FBI officials with hundreds of thousands of dollars in prestigious rank awards – on top of annual performance bonuses.

Alongside the parade of embarrassing FBI scandals, bungles and debacles -- from Richard Jewell to Filegate to Wen Ho Lee to Timothy McVeigh to Robert Hanssen -- a parade of Hoover Building bureaucrats picked up fat checks at black-tie honorary ceremonies hosted by the State Department.

Special agents running FBI field offices, meanwhile, were passed over for such awards, even though the incompetence seems to be centered in Washington.

"I'm hard-pressed to think of any case which has been solved by FBI HQ personnel, and I can name several that have been screwed up!" wrote Coleen M. Rowley, FBI special agent and Minneapolis chief division counsel in a blistering letter last month to FBI Director Robert Mueller.....

I have no problem with you older coppers laying down because you're unhappy with the current situation. I only have 4 years on this job. I wasnt around when all of you were rockin-and-rollin back in the day. It just seems that the coppers in my district that are promoters of this big work slowdown are the same ones who have been dog asses their entire careers. If the young police dont learn to be aggressive in our early career then we will be dog asses our entire career. I am going to run around and lock scumbags up because thats why I took this job.
Now you can actually justify why you hide all night long. 10 years ago it was called being a pussy. And then you tell PPO's "dont be aggressive, its just gonna get you CR's and lawsuits." Fuck that! You can do this job aggressively and not end up in jail. Sure you will get CR's and lawsuits but who cares. As long as you dont act maliciously its all overtime $$$$.
And at least back us up. This work slowdown should not be about affecting safety of fellow coppers. I watch some of you just drive by us when we have 5,6,7 people on the hood.
You dont have to make traffic or street stops but at least ride past other coppers jobs and make sure everything is ok.

SCC and fellow officer, I have to address one thing. I keep reading about J-Fed and his friends playing dress up and how they're not one of us but I have a very personal story to share with you..
A month ago my 18 year old daughter was taken from me in a fatal car accident. I'm a single dad and raised her alone since the age of nine. We were best friends and she was known and loved by all my friends in 006.
The day of the crash the police family rallied around me and my family, including my ex-wife, in such amazing fashion. The 006th district and 022 were so wonderful and there are just no words to express the gratitude I have for Peer Support. But ladies and gentlemen one of the first officers to rush to the hospital was Deputy Superintendent Pete Brust, a retired agent brought here by the Superintendent. Deputy Brust showed my family as much or more concern then I had ever seen given by an exempt who'd come up through our ranks. He arranged transportation for family flying in from across the country and he offered any other help he could. And yes, he cried with me..So you say what you want, I can tell you, after 22 years on and being a CPD kid (Dad did 35 years), Brust is part of this family! His sincerity, his compassion told me volumes about the man. To everyone who has been here for me, Thank You will never be enough. I simply singled out Brust to offer an opposing view for those who read this blog with an open mind..And to all you parents, make the most of every moment, talk to your children, hug them always and never miss a chance to say I love you. I'm quite lucky I had my baby girl for 18 years and now she's my Angel...

Great story! But, I don't believe it. J-Fed may have screwed up with his COZZI decision, but he's not the type of manager to order the inspectors to go after the coppers and fire all of them. An effective manager realizes he needs his people more than they need him. J-Fed knew the morale of the department was less than zero before he got here. I believe there was a meeting with the inspectors. During this meeting J-Fed probably told the inspectors to hammer the dog asses that stay down on their jobs. I have to be honest. I don't think J-Fed is the problem; this department was on a downward slope to the bottom a long time ago. I think we're starting to find the bottom.

If he wants to keep his cushy spot at

Everyone of you on this blog took an oath. You sit on your collective asses and whine that you have it so bad. You don't want to work, go find another fucking job.
While I think its bullshit that the Mayor went outside the ranks to hire this guy at twice the pay Cline got, I still think the Police got it a lot better than most in the working world.

You can't stand Daley? Bring all the stuff you got on him to the US Attorney. You sound like a bunch of jagoffs making unfounded accusations. You been to court haven't you? You can't do anything to anyone unless you can prove it up.

Anyway, if you weren't the police, what would you be doing? Think your next job would let you ride the medical for up to a year?

Look around. Check out the private sector, anyone making any kind of money is being bought out or riffed. Go ahead, check out Career Builder, or the Sunday Trib or any help wanted ad, see what's out there. If things are as shitty as you say, why are you still here. Honestly, you sound like a bunch of pussies with all this where's mine bullshit.

I'm not certain how representative this blog is of the rank and file of the CPD, but the recurrent theme here seems to be "fuck the city". Fuck the citizens. The days of the freebies have long since gone.
They tell you day one that you're not gonna get much sympathy from anyone when you make more than 80 per cent of the people you took an oath to protect. But all that stuff is meaningless bullshit to alot of you. I read some of the shit thats written here and I have to say it makes me sick.

There's no shortage of derisive commentary about this city on this blog. Everyone else that works for the city is either a dog or a thief or a jagoff. I guess we're just not as good at getting caught as all of you. Most of the citizens here dont wear the costume, and if they do, they're smart enough to know how to behave when they're wearing it. How sharp do you suppose you look when the Abbattes decide to perform on camera? Daley didn't tell anyone to beat the shit out of a female bartender, nobody in City or County government instructed anyone to have a car disappear in order to file a false insurance claim, or running tow trucks to accidents, or writing drunks to steer the ticket to certain lawyers or look the other way because private clubs have high stakes gambling going on. Those are decisions that are made in the district, by you and others making accusations. And when you get caught, you find a way to blame misdeeds on somebody else. I agree with the person who says that we do it to ourselves.

Hey, you only go around once in life. If you're not happy doing or not doing something, go do something else. Why be miserable? Take your talents, skills and knowledge and roll the dice, and see what's out there for you.

In the meantime, you're still drawing a check, so if you're not doing anything, then who's the crook?

What is driving all of this?

J-Fed? Crime?

No.

Those thousands upon thousands of drug cases that used to fill 26th and California are gone. All those surveillances that no one in their right mind would do today, have dried up the biggest cash cow in the county. For the first time in decades, most court rooms are caught up on cases.

Who is losing?

The lawyers. If you listen, you can hear them crying poor in the hallways.

What does this mean for us? It means watch your ass. More now than ever before because everyone one of these struggling lawyers with no dope clients is going to head on down to federal court to file any case they can to make ends meat.

This discussion has nothing to do with crime, or policework, or arrests, or violence. It has to do with money. Less cases mean less ASAs, less judges, less PDs, and poor lawyers.

This "crisis" has most of the county connected fat cats scared out of their skins.

All three times, after our contracts were resolved, the black holes just fell off the face of the earth never to be heard of until the next contract.

The City claims they have a $400,000,000 budget deficit. The City blames this on the housing market, yet this is a time when businesses are moving into Chicago instead of fleeing as they had in the past. This can be seen with Miller Brewing and United Airlines moving their corporate offices to Chicago.

The City has 1.8 billion dollars reserved from the lease of the skyway. The City is currently in negotiations to lease Midway airport for billions of dollars.

Dennis Gannon and the Chicago Federation of Labor (CFL) are willing to take unpaid furlough days. That is the smart thing to do since his membership can be laid off and having just signed a ten year prevailing wage package for the tradesmen. On the other side of the coin, police officers cannot be laid off until all the civilians employees are laid off first.

If the City is serious about closing the black hole then look at serious proposals. Start by eliminating the take home vehicles which the supervisors in all departments the City have at their disposal. These are the highest paid employees with the added perk of a take home vehicle and free gas, free maintenance, and free insurance. This is not an occurrence exclusive to the Police Department. It is in every City department.

We are the only City department who has officers serving unpaid suspensions everyday. We are the only City department where the City is seeking to fire officers every month. We are the one department in the City that generates the most revenue.

Stop letting millions of dollars escape over the border to Indiana casinos. The Mayor wants a casino in Chicago and the Governor wants to give the City a casino license for $500,000,000. The Mayor does not want to pay a licensing fee. To fix your black hole negotiate with the Governor and bring a casino to Chicago. We have not had a pay raise in the past two years, we have not had any fruitful contract negotiations, City Hall has blocked our pension portability legislation without any reason, and we get beat up by the media and the politicians.

This black hole, if it is real, did not come to light yesterday; the City must have seen it coming years ago and they took no steps or corrective measures to fix the problem. Now, at the eleventh hour, the Mayor’s solution is three unpaid furlough days, which only gives the City $9,000,000. This makes for nice cosmetics but it hardly helps fix the deficit.

At a time when homicides and violent crime are on the rise and the citizens at every forum want more police officers in their neighborhoods for protection, it is reckless to even suggest that you would want less police officers on our streets. We will sit down and help the mayor find solutions to the problem but not at the expense of our officers.

How bout a 6% raise over 4 years, no change in health care for active and retired, lift the residency req, and hire more police.
It will never happen so, this is what you get! THEY DO NOT HAVE OUR BACKS!!!
You should have been out at the outdoor roll call @ 115/perry last week. What a fucking joke. All those bosses telling us, "We got your back if your right." We need you to go lock up people. Then we lined up, lights and sirens going through the neighborhood. The people of Roseland were confused, and were expecting us to through out candy or even blocks of cheese or something. And to think Shields is next in line for the thrown... PLEASE.....Just because there's a connection w/O'bama? Vote Republican!
