What's This?

From the comments:
  • J-Fed has lost his mind. Letters were placed in the mail boxes of F.O.P. Officers, Greg Bella, Tim Fallon, Sidney Davis and Bill Dougherty that they were being stripped of their police powers by J-Fed for failure to complete annual firearms training. They were notified to surrender their badges and identification cards next week.
Last time we checked, failure to qualify was the basis for a Complaint Register investigation. The CR process has many numerous and well defined steps that must be adhered to. The Superintendent circumventing the entire process without any form of investigation, process, rebuttal and appeal is unprecedented.

If true, it would be a massive contract violation of the highest order. Can anyone confirm?

Just what will the FOP officers do? They are afflicted with a testosterone deficency which means they will allow themselve to be stripped.

Besides who are they gonna file a grievance with anyway??

They are going to endorse the democratic ticket anyway

Ive always heard that that N/W side's property taxes were astronomical.

Today, I went to a birthday party, and sat and talked to a man who works for the Cook County Accessors Office.

I was told to expect property tax increases over the next 5 years. He said to expect my property taxes to double by 2013.

Im sick of this City/County/State. If Im expected to live within my means why cant we expect the elected officials to do the same?

IM STUCK! Ive got at least 7 more years. Whats that? 2 more contracts? At the rate that FOP gives stuff away our contract will have 75% management, and no senority rights.

Hmmm, let me think about this... been on the job over 25 years and all this time, I've NEVER seen anyone of rank higher than a Lt. getting his gun dirty at the range. J-fed should think twice about pulling a stunt like this before he's forced to place the same punishment on his gold stars. And the range officers should stop handing out qual-cards to exempts like they were candy!

The triannual reassessment calls for increases. We are currently way under market value which is what most counties in IL pay taxes on. The goal of the CROOK county is to bring everyone up to this standard thus greatly increasing taxes. Expect to have property taxes double in 10yrs 6mos just on the 7%cap currently in place. If the cap is not in place the taxes will raise sooner.

OT, just wanted to share a point of view from a friend of mine that lives in the suburbs and works in the city.

Subject: Why I love Mayor Daley
Date: Mon, 2 Jun 2008 11:15:22 -0500
So there am I yesterday at 5 pm enjoying a joyous ride on the city of Chicago's red-line and blue-line el trains. when I feel the urge to use the washroom. Now, one would think that at transfer stations, like Lake, or Jackson, that the great Mayor Daley would spend the x amount of dollars and actually instal a washroom. Nope. He can have 8 coke machines and 6 vending machines and a lazy guard that actually got up and informed me that "Nah, we don't have no washrooms here honey". Thanks. A woman who probably works for the TSA at the airports at night. How about converting a storage closet into a bathroom? Too easy, I know.

Mayor Daley. God bless you. Go install your $50 a pop bushes at Milenemium Park or talk about how "badly" you want the Olympics, yet where are the foreigners going to go take a leak? The subway that, no joke, has to buzz you in to take a leak after you buy a sandwich pack size Doritos for $2.00? It's a joke. Anyone who wants the Olympics here should be shot or forced to work it. I may take Jen and get the hell out of dodge for those 3 weeks while they are here. XXX, I feel for you. I do.

So in retribution, I may go dig up one of Daley's fine bushes, sell it, and rent a Johnie on the Spot and charge people $2.00 to use it.

TWO QUESTIONS:
A few posts ago there was rumor that many more department heads are on the verge of rolling. My question to the Sup is "ARE YOUR NEW EXEMPT RANK MEMBERS GOING TO BE REQUIRED TO PASS THE POWER TEST THAT YOU WANT PATROLMEN TO PASS?".

From the looks of the Commanders in the Tribune article I'D PAY MONEY TO WATCH THESE CLOUT HACKS TRY IT.

Second, how many people actually think J Fed was behind the first group of promotions/demotions? Personally I'd be surprised if he made more than two or three of the
20+ changes. That had DALEY written all over it.

Holy Networked Batman!!!

You have meddled with the primal forces of nature, Mr. Mayor, and I won't have it!! Is that clear?! You think you've merely de-policed our streets. That is not the case. The criminals have taken hundreds of lives from this city, and now they must go to jail! It is ebb and flow, tidal gravity! It is ecological balance!

You are an old man who thinks in terms of political scams, jobs for family members and democratic machine friends. There are ethical borders. There are no insider deals. There are no political friends. There are no layoffs. There are no budget problems. There is no Olympics. There is only one holistic system of systems, one vast and immane, interwoven, interacting, multivariate, multinational dominion of justice.

It is the international system of justice which determines the totality of life on this planet. That is the natural order of things today. That is the atomic and subatomic and galactic structure of things today! And YOU have meddled with the primal forces of nature, and YOU WILL ATONE!

Am I getting through to you, Richard?

You get up on your little milk crate in front of the media during a press conference and howl about layoffs and budget cuts. There is no gun control in America. There is no democracy in Chicago. There is only Hispanic, Black, White and Asian voters. Those are the faces of political power in this city today.

What do you think the south and west side reverends talk about in their councils of state -- Karl Marx? They get out their linear programming charts, statistical decision theories, minimax solutions, and compute the total number of political insider jobs they have collected participating in the Daley democratic machine.

We no longer live in a world of racism and ideologies, Mr. Mayor. The world is a college of special interest groups and corporations, inexorably determined by the immutable bylaws of voter registration and monetary donations made to political action committees. This city has become a shit hole, Mr. Mayor. It has been since your old man crawled out of the Irish slime. And our children will live, Mr. Mayor, to see this fuck up city maybe reach civil war or famine, oppression or civilian brutality.

Not sure whether or not these guys qualified. If they havent ddone so in a timely manner, then they can look forward to some discipline coming their way.

And if they are unable or unwilling to qualify then eventually they will be stripped and ultimately discharged

You cant be a policeman if you cant demonstrate the ability to profiicently handle your service weapon.

Assuming for the sake of argument that this actually happened, it's brilliant. If they failed to qualify, they are subject to decertification by the State Police Board. Doesn't matter what the contact says about progressive discipline. If the Reps are decertified that can't be employed by the CPD as police officers. If they can't be employed as PO's then they can't be members of the Union or run the Union according to the Union's charter.

Like I said, a brilliant way to get rid of the "loyal opposition" without doing anything but complying with State law.

I think it probably did happened. It's the same kind of maneuver that was used to avoid bringing back Officer Cozzi when the state court's said the CPD had to. Have the guy indicted federally and the City can't bring him back because he can't get certified.

Its true from FOP website wtf! I have been done working for sometime now this we are under attack!!

THE CONTRACT, UNDER ATTACK!! 08/18/08

On 15 August 2008, at 1715 hours, the Department stripped Greg Bella, Sid Davis, Bill Dougherty and Tim Fallon. This unprecedented action was taken by the Department because these union officers refused to comply with a Department order to qualify with their firearms. Why would we take this stance?

The Collective Bargaining Agreement, Section 17.2 Leave from Duty, states in part, “In addition to the Lodge President, six (6) officers covered by this Agreement shall, upon written request, be granted leave from their duties from the employer for the purpose of performing full time duties for the Lodge.”

We are on leave from the Department and working for the Union representing all officers below the rank of sergeant. We are not paid by the City; we are paid by the membership. We do have bosses, the 11,600 men and women who are members of this Union. This is to whom we answer, not to Weis, Brust, Kirby or Skahill. Not yesterday, not today and not tomorrow.

We have filed a grievance over this issue and the arbitration is set for a hearing on 29 August 2008 before Arbitrator Benn. So why, after an arbitrator has been picked and an arbitration date set, would the Department take action to strip the officers of this Union? Would not sensible people have waited until the arbitrator rules and then take the action ordered by the arbitrator?

This is a direct attack on our Union; can the Department order us not to represent a member? Can the Department order us not to enforce the contract? The answer is NO! At this time we have filed an injunction against the City over this matter and we will only respond to the ruling of an arbitrator or the courts.

What effect will this have on contract negotiations? What impact will this have on programs the Department is trying to roll out and they need consent of this Union? We think the answer is obvious to everyone except those in charge.

I hate to agree with the bosses but they are right on this matter.

Why can't these fudgepacking bitches at the FOP qualify like the rest of us?

Are they too busy with their no show jobs and 3 hour lunches to walk over to the Academy?

These guys are out of control ego maniacs. I just saw on the FLOP website that they are trying to justify their actions for their little hissy fit.

Its not like the dept tried to detail them to loop traffic.

Fuck these assholes.

If they had any pride, they'd cut their staff in two and cut the dues they take from our paychecks.

FROM FOP WEBSITE:

THE CONTRACT, UNDER ATTACK!! 08/18/08

On 15 August 2008, at 1715 hours, the Department stripped Greg Bella, Sid Davis, Bill Dougherty and Tim Fallon. This unprecedented action was taken by the Department because these union officers refused to comply with a Department order to qualify with their firearms. Why would we take this stance?

Easy solution:
Issue one 9mm cartridge to the FOP. Each day of the week a different FOP officer gets to carry it.

Just to make thing easy, lets call this guy Barney. The next day he has to do a field turn over to the next guy, who will now be called Barney.

Jodi Wiesal, nka Andy, will over see the turnover. If there are any fights, Aunt Bea will settle all disputes.

Are these guys fucking kidding me? With all of the problems facing the membership, this is what they want to fight the department over?

I generally sit quietly and read. Not today. Congratulations to our four "leaders" that failed to qualify with their firearms. You should be ashamed and embarrassed. But not for the reasons you might think.

Even if you "win" and did not need to qualify, you each chose to not submit to firing a lowly 30 rounds from your weapon AND simulataneously FAILED to preserve our Union's resources as some of these resources are now required to defend your sorry examples in court and/or in front of an arbitrator.

Too busy to qualify? Too proud to do so? Maybe and maybe. As fas as I can tell, the City has a pretty strong argument if you play the "leave" card. State Law seems to require you to qualify...even while on leave as "leave" status falls under the same guidelines as that of our retirees: Qualify or lose your right to carry concealed.

Further, did each of you really want to be considered, at least by the membership, as being on "leave" as your represent us? I thought not.

I know three of the four of you and expect more from each of you. Do I think that it was petty that the Department chose this course of action...ABSOLUTELY. However, your individual failure to perform a function that your fellow brothers and sisters perform, and the lack of recognition that failure to perform it would impact the entire union and negotiating process, is unconscionable.


And yes, I am currently ashamed to say that I voted for all four of you.

Sure, the deal has been cut to replace Senator Obama when he is elected President. Emil Jones will go to Washington to replace Sen Obama as illinois' Senator. That way he can collect a Federal pension too!

Who is Emil Jones home boy? Why the un-reformer Gov. Rod Blagojevich. And who names the Senatorial replacement for outgoing (likely) Senator soon-to-be-president Obama? Why none other than Gov. Rod Blagojevich!

You see how that works?

""We are on leave from the Department and working for the Union representing all officers below the rank of sergeant""

Now, correct me if I'm wrong, but if I take a leave from the Dept, don't I turn in my star & ID and I'm not allowed to carry a gun, right?

Do these FOP bosses, while on a 'leave' still have their stars & ID's, and can they carry guns and do they have the power of arrest? Seems to me they can/do, in which case they are not really on a 'leave', as they would like to think.

And, they are granted 'leave' from their duties from their employer, not 'leave' from state law, which requires qualifying.

While I think this is a pimpy move by the City, I am no friend of union bosses who make 2 to 3 times what I do, and only come around at election time; just like precinct captains.....
Acting just like "Exempt" department members, thinking they are "Exempt" from everything.

This is no more than typical Power Play. You want to screw with the rank and file, you screw with those who represent them.
The method of communication is clear. weis thinks he can bully us, bully our union, and force us to play his game by changing the rules in the middle.
The key is to fight back. Stand up for yourself. This is to say that you as a Blue Shirt must dictate the game rules. This administration has already turned us against each other. The mistrust between the rank and file is 10x what it was a year ago. Paranoia is running deep.
Since when have we done this job for them...we have always done it for us. We have always done the job on our terms, but now a line is drawn in the sand and we are sitting here bitching about it and doing nothing proactive. This should be a sign.
Daley has got to realize his mistake. Bringing a boy from Philadelphia, some hot shot fed to run a Department filled with homegrown potential leadership that was ignored by him was a slap in the face to every copper that has eaten lunch on the hood of a squad, or had to change clothes in the garage for fear of roaches infesting his home, or dredge through a foot of snow to get to a domestic a block away, or sitting in the middle of "celebrants" trying to quell a riot, or even been spat upon. There are inumerous amounts of experiences, both positive and negative, and a certain understanding of what it is to be the Police, needed to lead Chicago Police. Weis possesses none of them as I see it.
As soon as he is forced to swallow his bull shit pride and admit he made a mistake, then we can get a real boss in there to motivate, and revitalize this dying department. It's ok we all make mistakes, but WE correct them

For all you posting "Fuck the the FLOP" there's another champagne cork popping in the mayor's office. Guys are arguing about standing up to this. Plant a few blog entries to fan the flames and Ta-DA! A union without unity! The administration may now wait out the fireworks and negotiate with a membership that will eventually just want SOMETHING.

Just read the FOP website. According to them, Dougherty and company have been stripped of their powers for refusing to qualify with their firearms.

Guess what? Unlike a guy who takes a LOA to become a Sate Senator for example, the five stooges carry the CPD star.

When their terms are up they go back to the CPD for employment or to the CPD pemnsion for a retirement.

If any of these five knuckleheads shoot someone, ( justified or not) the City Council will provide a lawyer to defend them.

If there is a judgement the City will indemnify them and pay it.

Therefore the City has the right and the obligation to ensure that these five can safely handle a firearm, despite their arrogant and mistaken opinions to the contrary

They DO answer to the Superintendant and his designees whether they like it or not, again their arrogant and mistaken opinions to the contrary.

They are bound by the Rules and Regulations and the department Directives, like it or not

One thing the Funny Five are correct about, in their tirade, is that they have to answer to the membership.


This ignorant arrogance is why we get our heads kicked in at contract negotiations year after year.

Since all 50 alderman and women have police badges, radios, and "may" carry firearms, where & when do they qualify?

Where and when do they register their firearms?

Who watches the watchers?

We all know that most exempts never fire a round at the range, and if they do, it's in a closed session that you and I will never see.

Whether FOP was right or wrong, it was a standing practice that they apparently did not have to shoot. Now the FED boy is going to throw his weight around and step on us as a group and diminish our contract and voting rights.

I for one, won't do a Fuc*ing bit of work for him or any of his pimp commanders! I will go to my jobs in a timely matter and make arrests only if necessary. I WILL take a 30 minute lunch and two 15 minute personals every day as provided. I WILL use the medical every time I don't feel good and stay on it until I feel better as my doctor advises me to.

Yes, lets make qualifying legit. No more passes for house mouses or the favored few. If these range guys are fudging the numbers, fire them or throw them back on the street. Or better yet privatize the range.

those guys should qualify, they are still the police, they are not special, they are lucky to have the job they have and not to work the streets. If a police officer fail to qualify they sre in trouble why not them, just because they are part of the union, they still are responsible to do what is require. The Sup did not do nothing wrong, he is trating everyone the same. You go Bosss.

Do you troll around just to pass your morning, or are you trying to curry favor with the geek crew?
