Daley Lied? Again?

  • As Daley hailed the opening of an extended runway at O'Hare International Airport, Weis waited at the edge of the crowd for more than two hours. After the event, as reporters asked Daley about police hiring, Weis stepped up to the microphone stand.

    That's when the mayor abruptly ended the news conference. Daley said he would talk today about O'Hare expansion and nothing else.

    "We're going to stay on this subject matter because I think it's important to stay on the subject matter," Daley said. "No, no, it's good to stay on it. Yesterday I took questions [on other topics], tomorrow I'll take questions, so you'll see me all week. Don't worry."

    A broadcast journalist mentioned the Tribune story to him, and Daley replied: "I know, don't worry. Tomorrow, we'll be there. OK, thank you."
  • For the second day in a row, Mayor Richard Daley refused to take questions from reporters about his administration's failure to keep its promise to hire more police officers.

    Appearing at a Friday event to announce federal money for public housing, Daley once again avoided discussing the police issue.

    Police Supt. Jody Weis had promised to increase the ranks of officers as Chicago grapples with its first increase in its homicide rate in years. But the Tribune reported Thursday that City Hall has not approved department requests to hire enough officers to keep up with retirements and other attrition, resulting in hundreds of vacancies.

Some reporters are putting two and two together. Finally. And when Daley says "two plus two equals five," these same reporters are pausing in the middle of their sycophantic laughter and realizing, "Wait a minute, that's not what they taught us in J-school."

Anyone who scans the FOP newsletter can see the average fifty-plus retirements every month. Then you just pay attention at roll call and don't hear about the recruit graduation ceremonies and notice that there aren't any new faces in the Districts and the number of 99 cars keeps going up. Cops are supposed to be bullshit detectors. Anyone else smelling something odd coming out of City Hall and 35th Street?

Thank God that the truth is finally coming out before one of us is killed again.

Isn't there a reporter out there somewhere who can add it all up? We have been spelling it out for you for two years. There is a serious manpower crisis on the CPD.

We are short officers,detectives,sergeants,lieutenants,captains and I belive tow exempts. There is closer to 2,000sworn members down.

Call the PBPA Union and get he nubmers, get he officer and detective numbers from FOP, do a FOIA, ask for the number of duty availability and uniform checks issued, the number of sworn personnel who qualified annually, the number of sworn member sont eh payroll, the annual number of retirees,resignations,deaths,terminations,premanent disablity,temporary disability,etcetra.

You have to be persistent, the CPD and the city will lie and deceive you. Take a drive aroudn the city on midnights and count how many squad cars you see and coun the number of one man units.

This could be a pulitzer in the hands of a master journalist.

Is there any way we could all post how may '99 cars per watch per district occur on a "Daley" basis?

We have been extremely lucky with all the '99 units prowling the streets that nobody to my knowledge has been injuried or killed as a result of the lack of manpower.

The smoke and mirrors of getting rid of Public Housing Unit, and the School Patrol Unit, and purging HQ in order to place more officers on the streets has been a success!!! Seems since we have gotten rid of those units that all you hear is of all the problems occuring at the schools and projects.

So, when the crime rates get higher year after year because not enough coppers are on the street, then I guess everyone can blame Daley for it all and stop blaming the cops who bust their asses day after day to overcompensate for the vacancies of this department.

And instead of shelling out thousands of dollars for these in car cameras that will eventually break down just like the computers (or PDT's) that we have now, maybe Daley and his overpaid cohorts could use the millions of dollars chicago just got to hire more cops instead of giving it to those don't know the meaning of a dollar. Oh, but in Daleyland, that's unheard of....

Officer Richard Francis was a victim of working 99.

It was our illustrious former Superintendent Phil Cline who dismantled the Public Housing Unit and the School Unit; this was done with the aid of the Rat Charlie Williams. You are correct there has been an exponential explosion of crime in both areas with the two units demise.

Off to Communist Russia, to learn new tactics in disinformation or as the Ruskies say dezinformatsiya.

Disinformation is mostly commonly described as false information created by governments in wartime for military purposes and by totalitarian governments for political purposes in peacetime. Rumors, lies, and other forms of disinformation were made public by the Soviet Union to discredit the United States, the latter being the context in which the word is generally applied. The KGB coined the Russian word dezinformatsiya; it came into the English language as disinformation. The technique of disinformation goes back at least to 1918 with the end of World War I. Disinformation as a KGB weapon began in 1923 when I. S. Inshlikht, deputy chairman of the GPU, then the name of the KGB, proposed the establishment of a special disinformation office to conduct active intelligence operations.

Welcome to the People's Republic of Chicago. If we could trade Shortshanks for Kim Jung Il, at least we would have transparency in this totalitarian political cesspool.

The old Soviet Pravda had more credibility than local Chicago media.

I predict that in the "journalistic" tradition of Peter "Judas" Karl, Daley will again emerge unscathed by unpublicized yet damning facts.

Oh, the media might throw the Stuttering Prick a few softball questions after he is thoroughly initiated on equivocation and specific damage control. This rotten muthafucker "owns" the local media.

"The Emperor" is sitting on a time bomb and he "has no clothes."

For the love of Jesus Christ, where are you when we desperately need you, Fitz? Does this crooked cocksucker also have the DOJ in his hip pocket?

* * * * * * * * * *

And to think that on that defining date of November 4th, the American electorate could actually buy into the "suave and debonair" bullshit of the "messianic" spawn of the Democratic Machine.

It gives me nostalgic memories of my several visits to that Land Down Under. One vacation in Oz and you might well consider not coming back. The Aussies really got their shit together, mates.

Keep up the pressure SCC. Surely SOMEONE coming out of journalism school will have the courage and idealism to do some real journalism.

Some time ago on one of the threads someone stated that there are no real journalists anymore. They all sit at computers surfing the internet for tips and stories and then regurgitate on that. REAL reporters used to get out there on the street. They had sources, connections and they picked up on things as before they happened or were unfolding. At the time it sounded like whoever wrote that must have been a reporter or in the industry to make such an observation. And it makes sense. I think "reporters" have set themselves up to sit on their asses and have information come to them via email and internet. They've become lazy and self serving and use THIS job as a segue into a cushy political job later on down the road.

The projects are emptying out as we read these comments. Finally the city has begun tearing down the
buildings. Not that the PHU is not needed, but the jets are getting smaller and smaller and much easier to control. The schools on the other hand are getting out of control. A school unit is sorely missed and much needed. Chicago is setting themselves up for failure without some type of dedicated school unit. Wait until we have a Columbine here and the Mayor and Superintendent need to explain to the media why this was allowed to happen (manpower shortages, and how history was allowed to repeat itself.

I believe this person's crime was calling one such recruit a "stupid" (derogatory name, meant for his polish nationality), and then telling the recruit they were fired. Since that infamous day, I believe the number of people now stands at 17 who have stepped up and officially complained about this idiot and are in the midst of suing the living shit out of him and the City for the exact same CRIME.

This is what happens when the ignorant are promoted because they have friends. In this case, let's see the hammer continue to fall upward and smack his current benefactor (a D/S) right in the "head" as he so richly deserves for the moral sins he has also commited under the shield of the federal "buddy" system.

After that, it's just a short drop down to the newly promoted Chief who is also best buds with this same D/S, and who I might add is widely known for sexually harassing officers of the female persuasion.

Not one of these gold shitheads is without the sins necessary to bring them down if only the public knew.

We just need a few more blueshirts to grow enough ballhair to make it public.

So, when the crime rates get higher year after year because not enough coppers are on the street, then I guess everyone can blame Daley for it all and stop blaming the cops who bust their asses day after day to overcompensate for the vacancies of this department.
-------------------------------
doesn't make much difference what cops on the street do if the politicians refuse to lock up violent offenders and throw away the key.

criminals, their families, and supporters are a big power bloc politically. and they always vote for the same party.

The Mayor got a Lesson on "The New Math" from his Chief of Schools Arne Duncan.

It'd Doublespeak,

I'll have to check on that,

Stay on Topic,

Bullcrap!


Weis looks more and more like a schoolboy waiting for the teacher to call on him to give the answer.

Is he Afraid?

Maybe!

There "MAY" be a clause in his contract that if he opens his mouth and speaks out of turn, his 3year contract is Null and Void and he does not pass go and collect $310,000 a year for 3 years!

That may be why he is acting like a lapdog for ShortShanks.

Every item he has talked about is in LIMBO (new cars, assault weapons, same guns for all, more manpower, re-align districts and beats, eliminate districts, etc, etc.).

He must realize by now that he is in charge of NOTHING.

He is just another Button Man for the Mayor, who spoon feeds him what, where and when to speak.

There Is No Machine In Chicago!

Yeah Right!

Lets figure it out, get your calculators and think about which pocket you want to pull your change out of. The city doesn't have the money. Everything costs more. Your goofy characterizations that the politicians are walking away with the dollars that would save the department are overly simplistic and point a finger at your own ignorance. The good news is that more and more of us are retiring and living long enough to actually see a pension check. And the yearly cost of living increases to the pension benfits help. The bad news is nothing has been put in place to offset the increased benefits, not even since we had the first contract. So who pays? You could take Daley, Blago, Ryan, Thompson, and every alderman in the city and all the monies you've imagined them pocketting and still not offset the shortages labor contracts have left the city with.

Factor in the cost of the medical, costs of litigation, capital expenditures and operating costs of vehicles, fuel, maintainance of facilities, and an aging department where more coppers are inching up the pay scale and it should come as no surprise that you're short handed and in debt. So while a lot of us would like to be able to take our money and run to the burbs, who's left holding the bag?

There aren't any simple answers and there isn't any one cause to the problem.

But while the debate about the Department's problems and the lack of a contract continue, I still have to wonder how the Superintendent gets that fucking melon of a a head through the neck hole of a t-shirt. Either he's on steroids or his parents were circus people.

Back in the early 70's we were losing almost a cop a month. When Bob Wenzel was murdered in Jan of 73, police wives picketed City Hall. After that there was only two man cars after dark. It lasted for several yrs. Get Police wives, husbands, domestic partners, kids, parents - but NO COPS - to march around City Hall. Who cares if there are less cars to respond to 2 mutts killing each other, as long as the coppers are safe.

New schedule insights: you will be losing furlough time. Working day furlough = 25 days under reg schedule, under new schedule they will convert this to 200hrs then have you use up 8.5 or 10hrs every v-day. This totals to 20days insted of 25days if you have 10hr schedule and 23.5days if you have 8.5hr sched. You lose 40hrs on 10hr sched and 12.5hrs on 8.5hrs sched. Not to mention burning an additional .5hrs everytime you use a BFD (total 3hrs for 6BFD's)on 8.5hr day or additional 2hrs (12hrs. for 6BFD's)on 10hr days. Plus you'll be burning 8.5hrs or 10hrs everytime you take comp time, instead of 8hr which was the rate you earned. So who's making out? Could it be the FOP or of course the City, making you use up your time for nothing in exchange. FOP further states that if pilot programs work out thay will stay in effect. Therefore the city designating the work day to be a 8.5hr or 10hr work day but only giving you 8hrs for v-days and BFD's. Smells like shit, if we give this up whats next? FOP members making Capts. pay to mastermind this shit that wil not affect them, nice.

I am sure that the City of Chicago budgets or recieves money via federal grants or state funds to keep the CPD at full manpower. Since the CPD NEVER fills the department to full manpower, the city saves enough money right there, if people want to bitch about our benefits. Thats why so many police are detailed out. The City has always tried to do more with less. The City of Chicago will never be at 13,500 but yet it will continue to be budgeted for 13500, thus it diverts the rest of the money else where. And I am guessing the CFD is the same way. There should be more than enough money to take care of these departments via FED grants and state funds.

The smoke and mirrors of getting rid of Public Housing Unit, and the School Patrol Unit, and purging HQ in order to place more officers on the streets has been a success!!! Seems since we have gotten rid of those units that all you hear is of all the problems occuring at the schools and projects.

Every officer needs to research his antics in the FBI and in particular those toward SA Wright. SA Wright wrote a memo warning of the impending attack on 9/11 months before it occurred. Frustrated with the FBI's inability to prevent 9/11 even though they knew it was coming, Wright went to Congress and the public about his concerns. Weis was one of the dogs they unleashed on this guy to punish him for speaking out against the FBI. One article listed the following:

Wright listed several major failures of the FBI. They include

* lack of high-quality managers and modern computer technology;
* failure to modernize investigative objectives to deal with the new terrorist threat;
* too many investigative violations;
* incompetent managers not held accountable for their mistakes;

* an internal affairs unit that was "bias[ed] and unfair" to whistle-blowers and others;This is our buddy J-Fed,,,,

* criminal conflicts that have "contributed to the preventable deaths of American citizens";
* FBI duplication of the investigative jurisdictions of other federal law enforcement agencies such as the DEA and the Bureau of Alcohol, Tobacco and Firearms.

At the time it sounded like whoever wrote that must have been a reporter or in the industry to make such an observation. And it makes sense. I think "reporters" have set themselves up to sit on their asses and have information come to them via email and internet. They've become lazy and self serving and use THIS job as a segue into a cushy political job later on down the road.



sounds like a big chunk of our detectives...

Took the test about 2 1/2 years ago, nailed all the tests.

My investigator keeps assuring me that I am going to start the next month (april, may, june, july, august, september, recently "October for sure").

I could've started law school in august on a generous-ass scholarship. Why I still am yearning for this job, someone will have to explain it to me.

Back in the early 70's we were losing almost a cop a month. When Bob Wenzel was murdered in Jan of 73, police wives picketed City Hall. After that there was only two man cars after dark. It lasted for several yrs. Get Police wives, husbands, domestic partners, kids, parents - but NO COPS - to march around City Hall. Who cares if there are less cars to respond to 2 mutts killing each other, as long as the coppers are safe.

This retiree is brilliant.

Now, is the time to put together a March on City Hall, before the Nov. Elections and while the IOC is still selecting their city.

This will get national media attention in Obama's hometown.

We just have to organize it and have your kids,parents,siblings,Grandparents,friends,sympathizers,relatives,etcetra march for two hours. I will take my kids out of school for this. I want them to have a Mom, I don't intend on being murdered working alone with no backup because of the manpower shortage.

The Mayor and the politicians won't take us seriously until we UNITE and march at City Hall.

Having our relatives march is a great idea and will get results.

Retirees are welcome!

I've said it before; I'll say it again. To increase manpower and help stem street crime:
- reduce or elimate TRU and distribute the manpower to the 10 busiest districts.
- eliminate saturation and area gun and gang teams; send them back to their districts to fully staff gang/tact/patrol beats. The area dep. chief job should be administrative only, supporting and assisting his district commanders to get them what they need.
- no traveling road show for gang/tact unless a citywide emergency. Gang and tact teams shouldn't be sent to other districts for routine patrol, to guard school dismissals, etc. If the districts were up to manpower standards, this wouldn't be necessary.
- reduce specialized units in bureau of investigative service. They are way too heavy with manpower. Patrol is the backbone and needs the people; put them there.
- promote 100 detectives; 250 sergeants, 30 lieutenants; 10 captains.
- reduce the caps/community policing personnel or assign them to respond and handle quality of life jobs like LAPD does. They can handle the parkers, pissiers and drinkers so patrol can do police work.
- scrap these bullsht missions and event numbers. They're a joke. This is what the press needs to look into, this smoke & mirrors shit.
- negotiate a decent contract asap.
- implement a decent work schedule, whatever it is. Enough with the bullshit pilot programs. Make a decision.
- screw the car cameras, tahoes, gps etc. Concentrate on the basics. Let's get new modern radios, pdts in all the cars, new cars, etc. It's called infrastructure.
- Hire 500 to 750 recruits asap. More cops on the street equal less crime.
- If you're going to put heavy weapons on the street, do it. Let's get shotguns and rifles out there NOW. Not next year or the year after. Have you, J Fed, been looking at the number of police shootings his year? Maybe not because you were worrying about the power test.
- J Fed, quit surrounding yourself with a policy unit that has less street time than a patrolman about to retire at full benefits. What could they know other than how to kiss your ass. A get some top bosses in there who know how to run a big city police department because you don't.
- And the next time, J Fed, we, the working police, see you in uniform you had better be walking a beat or humping calls.

Cute.

What you're saying is, is that the 'powers that be' will respond to an officer safety issue by attempting to characterize it as a choice between being denied time due and riding solo, right? As in either accept the higher risk or they'll fuck up your off duty plans.


Management mentality at it's finest.

"New schedule insights: you will be losing furlough time. Working day furlough = 25 days under reg schedule, under new schedule they will convert this to 200hrs"

And that 200 does convert to 20 -ten hours days but count it out on a calendar before you spread wild rumors! you have more days off rdo so just count it out like a wd furlough but use 10 horus at a time. I must have counted it out for every furlough segment/period in 2008 and it works out to be the same time period. In one or two period there was an extra day.

and- you use 40 hrs now between your two weekend to get 11 days off for a Baby furlough- in the ten hours schedule- you use the same 40 hrs and get 12 days off because the weekends are four days long- also- you have more oppountunties to take the baby furloughs- current schedule- two weekends every 6 weeks- let oportunities per year- new schedule, three weeks every four weeks- many more opportunities to take a BF!
