J-Fed Says We're Insignificant

Golly, we better shut down the site and go home.

Usually, we avoid National Public Radio like the plague. Leftist lib-tard programming for persons unable to think, reason or form a cognizant thought, all subsidized by tax dollars! NPR (and Amtrak) ought to be cut loose from public funding - they'd be bankrupt in a month and the country would save millions.

Someone pointed out that on the Eight Forty-Eight program, they had one-on-one with J-Fed on 15 September. Most of it was canned Q&A (Abbate, SOS, Ardeleen, etc), but then the host asked about Department morale (at 13:40 on the counter) and J-Fed replied thus:
  • "I don't put a lot of stock in the blogs. We have thirteen-and-a-half thousand officers and about sixteen thousand people. When you see 234 comments posted, that sampling is pretty insignificant, statistically."
J-Fed also commented about the "lies" posted "by the blog." That is in itself a lie as we never posted word one about him running DUI checkpoints - that was a reader's comment and it was pretty much debunked after it went up. J-Fed can't be seen admitting he reads the blog, but he can spread his own misinformation. So typical of a fed.

We'll admit, 234 comments is statistically insignificant. We actually do about 400 comments daily and that's still insignificant compared to 13,500 officers. Here's what's not insignificant though Jody:

That's a little snapshot of the past twelve months of the blog. 2.3 MILLION visits in the last twelve months, 1.8 MILLION this year alone. Five of the last six months topped 200,000 and we'll do it again in September. Every single bit of it while BANNED on Department computers. Did you notice the front page of the web edition of the Sun Times yesterday? A direct link to the blog referencing Prayers for the Children. TEN THOUSAND visits yesterday. Someone thinks we're significant.

Here's a challenge J-Fed. If we're so insignificant, take the filters off. You'll never let it happen of course. You'll remain true to type, stuck in the Catch-22 not entirely of your own making, but stuck none the less. Keep thinking cops communicating Citywide is "insignificant" though. Who knows, maybe we are.

SCC/ Because of you the under dog has a chance. I made a complaint about the lock up on this blog, it was read by a watch commander who immediately brought it to the attention of the district commander. Guess what no more problem, because they fixed the problem fearing scrutiny from downtown.
This blog has put the merit pukes in there places, it has been a news worthy outlet for every member of the department. Its better than the 24 hour reports because this blog serves a useful purpose for the working man and woman of this department.

Maybe there wouldn't be such a need for this site if:

1. Jody didn't run this department by press release. We learn what's going on one of two ways, either from this site or from the newspaper. Despite his promises to remedy the situation, Jody continues to dismiss us and just issues press releases. This is how we found out about the new SUVs, the reorganization of the department (several times now) and the plan to make us pass some arbitrary physical in order to become properly armed.

2. Give us a contract, since we've been without one for fifteen months now. A raise, that actually doesn't insult us, considering county workers just got, what, sixteen percent?

3. Stop playing the part of the kid who got sand kicked in his face when he was little, running to his Fed friends every single time he can't control the situation where he works. Get over it.
We all know the Feds look down on us and belittle us. They don't know how to kick a door or chase the shooter through somebody's front door and out the back, jumping the porch rail and holding off the 'innocent' bystanders who jump on us while we're effecting the arrest. They don't DO what we do, but somebody thought he could tell us how to do it BETTER. A little humility would go a long way right about now.

I've got about a dozen more, but these three would surely HELP.

But it's easier to call this Department INSIGNIFICANT. And that's what he really thinks about us. We're just his winning lottery ticket.

J-Fed is a reactionary superintendent. He believes that we should attack only the worst gang, not the gang we get info on. That gang we get info on and don't act on will eventually become the worst gang. We need to be proactive instead of reactive...but it won't happen with all of the new attempts to get the police in trouble.

He has also stated that he just wants the people to feel safe. Fuck feel safe...I want to be safe.

Stated Jody...

First of all, show us where exactly these 13,500 officers are! I'm not talking about 13,500 paychecks, or 13,500 in a budget. I want to see the actual 13,500 individual officers! And no, boss, counting Officer Smith, assigned to Dist 026, but detailed to Unit 123 does not count as TWO OFFICERS!

Morale SUCKS! Ask damn near any Beat Cop, Dic, Cop in a unit, over half of your Sgts, and a good portion of the Lt's. This place BLOWS!

The Supt talked about "transparency" to some of the exams. Well, we got it, just not where he wanted it! Cause now we see through his bullshit!

So, Judas-Fed, your soul costs $310K a year for 3 years. At least we know your price. Some here have sold it for cheaper!

Well, I can say this.. AND IT'S NOT A LIE.. 9 out of 10 officers I speak to say they are DONE with doing "pro-active police work".
They will be as "non-aggressive" as possible when doing the job.
YOU CAN TAKE THAT TO THE BANK J-Fed.

HE DAMN WELL KNOWS IT!!!!
Why else would he be going to all the rollcalls and begging us be aggressive??? Even with GPS in the cars we can work smarter and stay out of trouble to avoid crap.

Someone gets shot in front of me; I'll just do a U-Turn and look the other way. Then, I'll come around the corner after 5 minutes and vounteer to do the paper and take 4 hours to finish it..

dear mr j-fed, you better think this thru a little more seriously. before the japs bombed pearl harbor their were red flags and attempts were made to notify the upper echelon thru chain of command that something was amiss. we all know what happened, it was just a few guys who were seeing things and it was ignored or passed on down the line. so j-fed, just 200 or so comments among 16000 may be a harbinger of things to come and maybe you should take notice before it is to late.

Either J-Fed is delusional or he must realize that denial is not just a river in Egypt.

MAYOR, PLEASE LOOK AT HOW THIS NEW SUPERINTENDENT THAT YOU PAY MORE THAN 4 P.O.'S SALARY TOGETHER, HAS ALONE, SCREWED UP THE DEPARTMENT. PLEASE REPLACE HIM!!! AFTER SIX MONTHS, WHAT HAS THIS IDIOT DONE THAT WARRANTS YOU KEEPING HIM ON, BESIDES SPEND THE CITY'S 300,000 PLUS DOLLARS AND BRING IN EVERY FRIEND HE HAS FROM THE FBI. HE HAS SURROUNDED HIMSELF WITH THE TRULY STUPID AND THOSE THAT JUST HAVE NO CLUE WHAT TO DO AT THIS POINT.

AT THIS POINT MAYOR, REACH BACK TO THE OLD SUPERINTENDENTS AND LOOK FOR A WAY TO FIX THIS. I REALLY THINK THIS IS THE BEGINNING OF THE END OF A GREAT DEPARTMENT THAT WILL SUFFER FOR DECADES BECAUSE OF THIS GUY'S STUPIDTY. I DON'T WANT TO HEAR OF ANOTHER TRAGIC END, NOR OF AN INNOCENT CHILD SHOT BECAUSE SUPER STUPID HAS IMPLEMENTED THE MOST DEMORALIZING TACTICS OF ANY POLICE DEPARTMENT, THEN SAY, GO OUT THERE AND WORK HARDER! WHY DON'T YOU AND YOUR FBI BUDDIES AT A MINIMUM, GO THROUGH THE ACADEMY, WORK THE STREET, AND SEE WHAT WE ENDURE DAILY, THEN WORK 2 PART TIME JOBS TO PUT YOUR KIDS IN A PRIVATE SCHOOL SO THE GANG BANGERS WON'T TARGET THEM SINCE YOU ARE NOT HOME WHEN THEY GET OUT OF SCHOOL, HAVE A GAME OR PARENT MEETING. REMEMBER, YOU WORK 3RD WATCH. BY THE TIME YOU CAN GET DAYS, YOUR CHILDREN WILL BE IN COLLEGE AND YOUR WIFE WILL BE ON HER 3RD BOYFRIEND DUE TO YOUR NEGLECT AND BITTERNESS.

THATS RIGHT, THROUGH ALL THE PLASTIC SURGERIES, YOU DON'T HAVE ANY CHILDREN, AND SINCE YOU BRING HOME 25,000 PLUS EACH MONTH, YOUR WIFE GETS TO SHOP IT UP AND PLASTIC SURGERY IT UP. YOU MAKE YOUR OWN SCHEDULE AND WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOU OR MIKE MASTERS SWIPED? WHEN IS THE LAST TIME YOR SECRETARY SWIPED, WHOS SPENDS THE MAJORITY OF HER DAY SURFING THE WEB?

I WOULD LIKE TO SEE THE SWIPE RECORDS FOR THE FIRST DEPUTY AND ALL DEPUTY SUPERINTENDENTS!!! STANDING AROUND THE MANY WEEKLY HOMICIDE SCENES DOING NOTHING DOES NOT CONSTITUTE GOOD POLICE WORK OR SUPPORT FOR YOUR TROOPS. YOU ARE IN THE WAY, GO THE FUCK HOME AND TAKE MIKE MASTERS WITH YOU. JUST BECAUSE YOU WEAR A VEST, DOES NOT MAKE YOU LOOK LIKE THE POLICE. YOU LOOK LIKE AN IDIOT, WEARING A VEST!

You know damn well SCC that every exempt member is familiar with SecondCityCop. I have personally heard many exempts as well as Sgt/Lt/Capt's speak about your blog and information that has been published on it.

Now one can say whatever they want about the importance of a source of information but the true tell all of its importance is its ability to disseminate information to a large group of people. And SCC is read department wide throughout the ranks. Now add the non-department member readers from new media reporters, spouses and love ones of department members, cop news groupies and many others... well unlike the Sun-Times, the Tribune and many other sources of information, I have yet to hear you say that SCC laid anybody off, your financially in the red, your cutting the number of posts or your readership is down.

You were one of the first or first to blog the CPD, your posts are factually correct, you expose the problems and concerns that others won't and you remain a gentleman while doing it.

So let them say whatever they want as they usually do but your visitors and loyal followers know how vastly needed and important your informational blog is to all of us. And no graphs, no stats or numbers are needed for anybody to know that.

Yeah, the blog is insignificant. That's why they know the number of comments that are posted. Just like a politician. They give you a number to prove their point (just two hundred comments out of over thirteen thousand officers.)

The real story is in how many people view the blog, how many cops there really are (not 13000) and what the morale really is. They twist facts and numbers for their purposes. SCC countered that with the real story.

Now I have a question or two. What are the real numbers as far as crime stats this year? How does the fact that the city will only offer one percent as a raise affect morale and, as a result, the amount and type of work being done by officers?

How does the reverends' and other political whores' influence reduce the police desire to stick their necks out while doing the job they are supposed to be doing?

Why doesn't the department or ASA prosecute false accusations against police? Why is there no money for raises, but plenty of money for GPS, cameras and all the other hair brained crap that they want to force on the cops?

Any answers? I thought not. Well maybe you can ask your master what to say and let us have the answers at the next "fireside chat" with the patrolmen and supervisors.

When did we go back to 13,500 officers J-Fraud??????? I could have sworn the city finally admitted we were down at least 1,500 officers. I know I didn't see a mass hiring. I know I haven't seen a ton of new faces wearing blue shirts in the ghetto.

Morale is in the toliet!!!!! Anyone can look at the faces of 90% of the dept and you can see defeat in their eyes. The majority of officers (those are people who work the street, not house mouses) are just going through the motions. I'm happy to get my check on the 1st and 16th. I do what I have to do and nothing more.

I have to say the number 1 reason morale is in the toliet is the double standard of discipline. Cozzi is suspended for 2 years and pleads guilty to a misdemeanor. He is now charged federally for a bullshit battery. Sgt G. Breimon is caught on film doing what he is accused of (forcing a girl to remove her top in a Sgt's Suad car so Sgt Perv can take pictures. He gave a false statement to the dics. Where is his rule 14 violation?) and never missed a check. Sgt G. Breimon now has full duty status back and will make Lt.

Suck on that J-Fraud!!!!!!!! Breimon's clout (Mom was Deputy Chief) is the difference in discipline on this dept. Why don't you try and disprove that to a working class officer!!! It can't be done!!!!!!!!

I said it before, J-Fed was only hired by SHortshanks to police the police, that's all. Shortshanks thought that crime will continue to go down regardless of the fact that manpower is low by many retiring and not hiring enough candidates to fill those vacancies thus saving the city money. Well he was completely wrong. CPD has been recognized nationwide and overseas over the last five years as a department that has been kicking ass and taking names against crime. Which is one of the reasons it put us on the map as a contender for the olympics. But all those dreams are going down the toilet for the midget.

This reminds me of the story "The Emperor's New Clothes". In that story the Emperor tries to convince the public that something exists which really isn't there. Only after one small child points out the truth does the public then come to realize it too.

Dear SCC

I was hoping I could use your forum to get something started

A few years back we all received the “Crime Reduction” awards, and although back then there was a lot of back and forth feelings about them I think they mean more now, than they’ve ever did in the past. I would like every officer who received it to wear them everyday and why? For two reasons.

1) To remind all of the officers of the outstanding job that they do everyday and the outstanding legacy that they have created. That ribbon symbolizes everything we officers are capable of doing when allowed to do what we do best, clean up the streets, fight crime and make this city a better place to live. Anyone who has worked the streets then and now can attest to that. The only way crime goes down is because of us officers and we all have it in us. So to every officer who feels down never forget we were great once ..we will be great again.

2) And more importantly as a reminder to the Mayor, to J-Fed, the new OPS and more importantly the all the idiots who have never spent ONE SINGLE DAY wearing the uniform, but think they know how the dept should be run. A reminder to just how much damage they have done to this department and in turn to this city. That all they’ve managed to do is break the morale and the spirits of the hard working officers who busted their asses to bring this city from being called the “Murder capitol of the country” to bringing the murder rate lower than it had been in the years. Every time they see a ribbon I want them to be reminded of all the innocent blood that has been spilt, blood that is on THEIR HANDS, blood that could have been avoided if they would have just had the integrity to stand up in the face of few scandals and say.

“Yes a few officers have done wrong but there are always a few bad apples in a bunch and when we find them we deal with them. But the actions of a few should never reflect the whole and the Chicago Police Department is filled with honest hard working dedicated officers who put their lives on the line EVERY DAY to ensure the safety of this city and while we will remain vigilant in our efforts to weed out the few who stray from the path we will not tarnish the hard work that honest officers do every day to make this city as safe as it is.” It’s called integrity, it’s called honesty and calling it like it is. When those scandals broke we endured, we kept making arrests, we kept coming to work doing what we do best. We put responsibility squarely where it belonged, on the Officers who committed those acts instead of blaming the entire department for their moral lapses.

But they folded like a house of card and what happened, in less then a year the city is worse off than it’s been in years… and that’s all on them. You wanted this police force, well now you have it and everything that goes with it, cameras, GPS’s, Inspectors writing up the littlest things, the Cozzie BS, and all the other stupid decisions that have done nothing but send this city in the arms of crime and violence like never before. And last time I checked there are still scandals breaking, so good job with that.

So I would like every officer to wear their ribbon, let us be united in the knowledge that WE know how to get the job done and I want the administration to KNOW just SIGNIFICANT we are and how incompetent they are and just how much they have failed this department and this city.

Unfortunately, SCC, J-Fed has a point you haven't refuted. Even 400 comments doesn't constitute much of a representative sample when you don't know if all of those are cops, and how many of those are the same cops. It might be helpful if you could note how many unique users are using the blog per day. These issues are difficult to refute when people understandably wish to remain anonymous, but I wouldn't get into statistical games with the department unless you really know statistics. In short, unless you wanted to identify your sample (fat chance) and demonstrate that you are drawing some substantial proportion of the department's rank and file to your site, it's not really an argument you can win. Not that I'm calling you insignificant--but don't mistake statistical insignificance for other kinds. Technically, he misused the term since "significance" is used but "insignificance" is NOT perhaps because it connotes that a finding of non-significance implies "insignificance," which is naturally doesn't. But with respect to samples, significance hasn't been tested here, so the real question is representativeness, as I've stated above. How many cops are here, and how representative are they of all cops working for the CPD? As I've said, I'm not sure that's a question you'll be able to answer. Hope this helps.

Regards,

a federal employee (not not a fed)

SInce we are so insignificant I want to take this moment to post something that I know wont be seen by anyone since noone reads this blog and we as a police department are insignificant.

The FTO program which has been on life support for quite some time finally has been taken off its machines and is about to die.

The powers that be have made the decision to change the training process and change the lives of many men and women who have devoted alot of their time and efforts into training new police officers right out of the academy.

Yes I will admit at times the program has shown a lack of productivity and thats because this program that never got the attention that it deserved in the first place was not given a chance to flourish.

I know the big bosses read this blog and I want to make my notification to them in this manner since my several attempts at a phone call have never been answered.

Because of a lack of funds its my understanding we wont be hiring any police officers for sometime. But to put a dagger into the heart of the FTO program instead of trying to repair it is a crucial mistake. There are going to be resignations of FTO s , and most of these are forced because like me alot of officers are forced to work certain hours so they can take care of their families.

And when I say take care of their families I mean more than bringing home a paycheck. I mean taking your child to school everyday and picking your child up. Sitting down and doing homework with that child, or going on field trips with your childs class. Attending school assemblies so your child sees you in the audience and knows that my dad, or mom is there for me and cares.

What I am saying is that you have affected alot of lives in many ways. And what you have done is a mistake.

A while back there were a group of us that were called into the academy to give our opinions on what would improve the FTO program and we gave our opinions. We never were in it for the extra $35 a paycheck, we did it because we enjoyed it and wanted to do it.

The decision to scrap the program is a bad one and one that will effect this dept for a long time. It may not have any immediate impact but when the time comes to put more people into the academy and to train them who will perform that task ?

Let me tell you the weeks after a recruit leaves the academy are crucial and the most important in his career as these weeks will mold him or her into the type of police officer they will eventually be.

In closing I will say I always enjoyed doing my job and training the officers of this department and I am sure that is a feeling that is shared by many. But I am very sad to see what has happened.

The decision made to the program are ones that are going to have a ripple effect maybe not right away but down the line they will.

I am sorry to see this happen.And I ask you to give this more thought and not allow this to happen.

Respectfully submitted
You know me and where I can be reached

You are a fucking nightmare I wish I could awake from and never have again. You had a opportunity to surround yourself with real police officers and learn how to be the REAL POLICE but you chose to play Special Agent In Charge with the Po Po and that don't work. You probably are the laughing stock back at the FBI.
SCC keep blogging the truth shall set us free from Short Shanks and J-fed.

Insignificant?

Jweasel is the definition of the term.

He has done nothing to improve this department for the long term.

Significance is in the details, contracts, leadership postions being filled by leaders not clout hacks, morale improvement, functioning equipment, promotions fair and qualified, hiring proper manpower to do the job, personnel support, continued education of the workforce, ...

these are the details a leader should begin with. NOT kissing your mayor's ass. Disinformation is dangerous because it is easily redirected towards a fool and their supporters.

I have only posted a few comments on this blog but I do want Jody to know this...I am a 007th District officer who is a hard worker and at one point loved this job and being a police officer, even in a place like Englewood. That has completely changed. I am tired of all of the negative publicity and the outright lies I see on the news with no defense from Jody. I am tired of the bogus CR#'s. I am tired of the GPS, cameras, etc. . I am tired of the courts telling me I have no probable cause on perfectly legit felony drug cases just because that particular judge doesn't like drug cases. I am tired of seeing the same murderers, burglars, armed robbers and sex offenders walk the streets rather than serve prison time. I am tired of seeing rap sheets that have 35 arrests but only 1 conviction. I am tired of the Englewood citizens blaming us for their problems. I am tired of the reverends having more say than us. I am tired of having bricks thrown at my squad car. I am tired of the endless shootings, robberies, batteries in progress in a neighborhood that can't get their act together. I'm also tired that you have no idea of how draining it is to work in these kinds of neighborhoods and thus can't begin to understand the mental and physical toll it takes on us. So, Jody, I guess you could say my morale is down and so is everyone else's in 007. Just because we don't post on this blog doesn't mean that low morale is fiction. It's real and it's all we talk about. Get in touch with reality and with your officers.

Right on. Except about Amtrak: it is subsidized far less than roads are. Make gasoline and car taxes pay the real cost of building and maintaining roads, and you'll be paying $15 a gallon.

But here in America, we call it "investing in infrastructure" when it's about cars, and "subsidizing public transportation" when it's about trains. Ironically, of course, the parts of the country most dependent on Amtrak are Red State guns-and-depopulated farm areas, people who hate the damn gummint subsidies they live off of.

Holy Stats Don't Lie Batman!!!

There isn't one politician in American today that will under estimate the power of the internet. Marketing experts are using them to evaluate consumer influences. The media is all over it and the blogs. The print media is dying because of it. And the video and audio media is trying to survive it.

Political action and fund raising on websites has gone through the roof.

Instead of Joe Blow communicating with only a few now he can communicate to the world.

If J-clown really cared about his profession, name, honor and future in law enforcement it would be stupid for him to ignore what is being discussed on SCC and the messages left behind by commentators who appear to have an interest in Chicago's safety and welfare.

It's a matter of power and authority. J-Clown doesn't want to surrender it with others who actually do the work on the streets while he makes guest appearances. A critical mistake. His job performance rests directly on the backs of those doing the work.

Any organizational leader that ignores it's workers will in turn be ignored and become insignificant.

This has already happen to J-Clown.

This blog is more than a significant source of information. I agree not everyone reads the blog. Some of the comments can be silly, silly, and very silly.

But, stats don't lie. There are approximately three million people living in Chicago and eleven in the metropolitan area. Thirteen thousand coppers aren't the only ones reading SCC. The politicians, community and business people are reading it too. Why...because everyone I meet I refer them to it. I promote it by word of mouth.

The general public has a better understanding about how things work here in the Chicago then the outsider from Philadelphia will give them credit for.

There are around 11,600 dues paying FOP members. that includes all below the rank of Sgt and very few others. There are a few supervisors who remain dues paying but mostly they are pissed at FOP for supposedly "throwing them out" when they were forming their own union.

That does NOT include retired or Sgt and above who do not pay dues to FOP.

Call it lies or collusion but I defy anyone to prove it. The major problem seem to be deployment.

At any given time there are over 600 PO's on limited duty, 700 on the medical, an unknown number detailed to detached services and the like and other misc. hidden spots.

Whoever comes up with 9,500 is mistaken. Maybe after all the medical roll people, light duty, limited duty etc but there are definitely 11,600 plus or minus a few dues paying PO's.

Keep the blog up please. what it is like is the shithouse wall at the old 321 N. Lasalle Traffic Court. It was always filled with tidbits about Department policies, bosses and Inspectors throughout the Department. Unfortunately most of us only got to that building once a month so we were unable to read or leave comments on a regular basis. Thanks INTERNET SCC is now that forum. It gives coppers across the city, across watches , districts, units stc. a chance to comment in almost real time about the Jag Off decisions that the " Ivory Tower " has made. Although some comments are off the wall most are pretty clever and have some great observations. Police Officers have great "bull Shit Meters" if it looks like bull shit, smells like bull shit, then guess what it sure is bull shit.. J- Fraud you have that look and smell guess what?

Despite his promises to remedy the situation, Jody continues to dismiss us and just issues press releases. This is how we found out about the new SUVs, the reorganization of the department (several times now) and the plan to make us pass some arbitrary physical in order to become properly armed.

When are you people gonna get it. 13,500 is all SWORN members. Hey stupid, Bea Cuello is sworn, Jimmy Jackson is sworn, Desputy Chief Sgt Keating is sworn. Get it! Go to I-Clear and add it up. We are about 8500 PO's. 1700 detectives. 1200 sgts. 250 lts. 70 capts., etc. Ya they count too. And if you talk this stuff about counting them twice (Unit 026 and 126) you don't know what you are talking about. I-Clear only counts once. All this shows is that so many of you don't know what the f--- you are talking about. It would make more sense if you took all the people whoa are out of patrol and in TRU, the 6 deputy chiefs platoons, and all these units we never had before. That is where the manpower is being lost to. We are within 96% of our allotted strength. It is the distribution of the manpower that has hurt patrol. If you have such in depth detailed knowledge, then go to I-Clear and find who is counted in two units and list their star numbers. You won't. Go back to your comic book where you belong Jethro. Leave this blog for something constructive to help others. Not your whining board cause your old lady won't listen to you.

The problem is not with JFED's salary, GPS monitoring or the lack of heavy weapons in beat cars. Unfortunately even though Jody Weis came with impressive credentials from a heck of a military and FBI career. He is simply not the person for the job of Police Superintendant in Chicago. Perhaps it was an honest error made for all the right reasons by Ritchie Daley, but Weis does not have the skills to guide this department. We need a Supremo who will ride, shoot, and speak the truth. The best person in my opinion would be retired USA Lt. General Russell Honore the leader of joint task force Katrina. I personally saw him in action when I deployed to the crescent city after Katrina. He was a candid and decisive action orientated leader who does not mince words. He even took Deputy Supt. Charles Williams by surprise. In fact he once told a reporter that he (the reporter) "was stuck on stupid" for asking a dumb question. Wow imagine him talking to Michael Sneed or Mary Mitchell like that. Taking on the job as Superintendant merits receiving a huge salary. It is an impossible job, with diminishing resources, tremendous demands, hordes of special interest groups trying to impose their will, and with ungrateful and sometimes stupid cops added to the mix. I'm sorry but I gotta call it like it is. Let me get going so I can get some real good coffee and a bagel at Whole Foods.

Former CPD SWAT unfairly dumped to Townhall District due to race norming.

In Depth: America's Most Stressful Cities

No. 1 Chicago, Ill.
With 7.3% unemployment and a gallon of gas going for just under four bucks, the Windy City has some economic headwinds that result in a perfect storm for stress. Chi-town’s pollution problems (it ranked No. 7 in terms poor air quality) and lack of breathing room (it's No. 2 in terms of population density) couple to create a Midwestern Molotov cocktail of stress.

Why is swat allowed to work 8-4 on all their days off without regards to seniority making time + 1/2 on the secure side but they have weapons far away in a car what idiot thought of this scam? come on thought of this? thanks new lt. for your crusade to ruin a great unit!

OH PLEASSSE! CAN'T YOU GUYS APPRECIATE ANYTHING. J-FED IS ON YOUR SIDE. CAN'T YOU JUST FEEL THE LOVE.

HE IS TRYING TO GET YOU RIFLES...IF ONLY YOU WOULD GET IN SHAPE. WE KNOW THERE ARE NO FAT HUNTERS OR GANG BANGERS USING RIFLES.

HE IS TRYING TO GET YOU OVERPRICED, OVER GASSED, TIP OVER TAHOES, IF YOU ARE EVER IN AN ACCIDENT.

HE IS TRYING TO GET THE GUNS OFF THE STREET BY BUYING UP ALL OF THE ILLEGAL GUNS OUT THERE INCLUDING ILLEGAL BB GUNS.

SOOOOOOO....PLEASE....PLEASE....PLEASE STOP YOUR WHINING AND MOANING... HE ONLY HAS A LITTLE OVER 2 1/2 YEARS TO COLLECT HIS MILLION DOLLARS FROM THE CITY OF CHICAGO, WHILE YOU BEG LIKE LITTLE BABIES FOR A DECENT RAISE. WHO DO YOU THINK YOU ARE????? PROTECTOR OF CITIZENS???? YOU SHOULD BE HAPPY YOU GET TO WORK 6 DAYS IN A ROW, NOT SPEND WEEKENDS WITH YOUR FAMILIES AND FRIENDS, ARE GIVEN THE PRIVILEGE OF TIME DUE (FORGET THAT YOU EARNED IT FOR GIVING UP HOLIDAYS), NONE OF THAT COUNTS. YOU ARE UNGRATEFUL LITTLE WHINNY BABIES,

YOU SHOULD BE OUT MAKING LOTS OF REVENUE FOR THE CITY TO PAY THE ALDERMEN AND MAKE SURE J-FED GETS HIS MILLION DOLLARS FOR HIS ONE JOB, NOT THE 2 JOBS FOR WHICH HE WAS HIRED.

YOU HAVE THE ONE JOB WITH THE CITY AND CAN'T MAKE ENDS MEET...WHAT IS WRONG WITH YOU? DO YOU THINK YOU ARE A TEACHER? A STREETS & SAN EMPLOYEE, A CTA EMPLOYEE.. THEY DESERVE AND GET RAISES (ESPECIALLY TEACHERS, I REMEMBER WHEN I TAUGHT, I HAD TO WORK FROM 8 - 3:30. THEY TEACH FROM 8-1:45 OR 9- 2:45 DEPENDING ON THE SCHOOL & GET AT LEAST 3 MONTHS TOTAL OFF DURING THE SCHOOL YEAR & HOLIDAYS) IT IS A PART TIME JOB ANYMORE. I FIGURED OUT THAT THEY MAKE AS MUCH OR MORE AN HOUR AS A POLICE OFFICER WHO WORKS 6 DAYS A WEEK. (THAT IS PER HOUR, NOT YEAR)

GET REAL YOU ARE A POLICE OFFICER, NOW GET OUT THERE WITH A SMILE ON YOUR FACE AND SERVE AND PROTECT THE FINE CITIZENS OF THIS WONDERFUL FLOWERLY CITY. YOU SHOULD BE GRATEFUL THAT THE CITY TREATS YOU LIKE A SECOND CLASS CITIZEN.

THIS IS HOW THE MAYOR THINKS OF YOU...SO THIS IS WHAT YOU ARE. SO SMILE, BE HAPPY, AND JUST DO YOUR JOB YOU UNGRATEFUL MEN AND WOMEN IN BLUE.

I'M SORRY BEING MARRIED TO A POLICE OFFICER HAS IMPAIRED MY JUDGMENT. I DIDN'T MEAN ANY OF THE ABOVE COMMENTS. HAVE A GREAT DAY & BE SAFE OUT THERE. WE YOUR OTHER HALF AND YOUR CHILDREN KNOW WHAT YOU DO FOR US AND WHAT USED TO BE A WONDERFUL CITY. THANK YOU.

Why is it that dicks units are running ragged only covering the "high profile" or "newsworthy" events if you have 13,500 officers?

SOMETHING TO TALK ABOUT
Chicago named most stressful city.

No. 1 Chicago, Ill.

With 7.3% unemployment and a gallon of gas going for just under four bucks, the Windy City has some economic headwinds that result in a perfect storm for stress. Chi-town’s pollution problems (it ranked No. 7 in terms poor air quality) and lack of breathing room (it's No. 2 in terms of population density) couple to create a Midwestern Molotov cocktail of stress.


I have to agree with this comment:

Comment from demon: I have to agree with Forbes, I have lived in Chicago all my life and am now 54 years of age so I've been here a long time. Chicago has deteriorated over the past 15 to 20 years and I think the main reason is because the same dictatorship has been in office way to long. Chicago needs a change as does the county, we need a new set of eyes and ears to lead this land that use to be a great city to live in. Anybody who lives here knows what I'm talking about.

Well all officers better care about the pension fund, especially when they get a look at the slate of slugs that will be running for the pension board. We need professional people on the fund and we are getting a slate of coppers who think the pension board is better than working the street.

How come Donohue & J-Fed meet clandestinely for coffee????

9/17/2008 07:12:00 PM
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
J-Fed doesn’t trust his own staff (Kirby etc.) Who he believes are reporting back to city hall. He also had his office swept for listens devices his first week. So the PPO has a enough brains that were not killed by roids not to trust the mayor. Donahue called and offered to bring the coffee and rolls and J-Fed told him NO we can meet at starbucks. That was the PPO’s idea. I walked into starbucks and had to do a double take myself on the way to class at IIT. The PPO looks so short sitting next to Donahue. Maybe Da mayor picked J-Feb because he is shorter.

Donahue told the membership at the next general meeting so their meetings have not been secret either. Don’t leave it up to your unit rep go to meetings yourself, go for yourself. Half of the reps don’t make 50% meetings that’s why they can’t run for lodge office. No smoking gun here.

*** ATTENTION ***

An additional reward fund has been created at the Patrolman's Credit Union for information leading to the arrest and conviction of the killer(s) of Det. Soto.

The FOP has let stand the $10,000 reward they originally offered. An anonymous donor has stepped up and contributed $25,000 to this reward fund. This money is there, in the credit union, no bull.

In addition, if anyone would like to contribute to this reward fund you can, just go to or call the credit union and ask to contribute to the Detective Soto reward fund. That way it can keep growing.

Perhaps a west sider who knows something will take a look at the $$ cash offered and come forward. So far the reward stands at $35,000. This was announced at the FOP General Meeting on 16 Sep.

Thanks you to the anonymous donor who came up with the $25k. Much appreciated.

Guys enough already with the 13,500 here is how you figure it out and yes it is just about right. Go to data warehouse then go to personnel then go to alpha star. Now enter our codes for rank ie 9161 is po, 9171 is lt. 9175 etc. if you dont know a code enter an exempts name and look at their code and then run it. All you have to do is enter your pc password at the top then go down to the right side area/section where it states code and enter each title code from po to Deputy Sup and you'll see how many OFFICERS we have just a couple hundred off. run it by age name etc. all the boxes are self explanatory Now figure in medical on a daily basis, which is probably in the hundreds. Yes everyone we do have that many, just like someone stated they are not counting BLUE SHIRTS they are counting EVERYONE. So no he isn't a liar he is stating some fact.

Unfortunately, SCC, J-Fed has a point you haven't refuted. Even 400 comments doesn't constitute much of a representative sample when you don't know if all of those are cops, and how many of those are the same cops. It might be helpful if you could note how many unique users are using the blog per day. These issues are difficult to refute when people understandably wish to remain anonymous, but I wouldn't get into statistical games with the department unless you really know statistics. In short, unless you wanted to identify your sample (fat chance) and demonstrate that you are drawing some substantial proportion of the department's rank and file to your site, it's not really an argument you can win. Not that I'm calling you insignificant--but don't mistake statistical insignificance for other kinds. Technically, he misused the term since "significance" is used but "insignificance" is NOT perhaps because it connotes that a finding of non-significance implies "insignificance," which is naturally doesn't. But with respect to samples, significance hasn't been tested here, so the real question is representativeness, as I've stated above. How many cops are here, and how representative are they of all cops working for the CPD? As I've said, I'm not sure that's a question you'll be able to answer. Hope this helps.

Regards,

a federal employee (not not a fed)

9/17/2008 09:19:00 AM

And herein Mr Federal Employee is wisdom...
When I read your post,it made me think of "Ibbidy,Jibbidy. Rat-A-Tat-Tat..." You must be a Fed, because Feds take days to analyze a case, but rarely close one. While I have never worked with a Federal Agent, I know several officers who have worked intimately with your kind, and to a man, they have said that they spend more time sending memos back and forth than actually investigating incidents. But I am getting off track here. I am a semi regular poster here, and I would say that I "represent" the mindset or attitudes of at least 80-120 other officers that I work with. The fact that they do not post does not mean that they do not share the perceptions of the posters. In addition, based on J-Feds quote, all of the polls taken in this current election cycle are insignificant, in that a typical sample of those polled are 1,000 to 3,000 (for a GOOD sample), out of 30,000,000 people!! Statistically that is "insignificant". The good news is that if J-Knucklehead really believes that the representation is "insignificant", when the hammer does come down, and the streets start to burn, (see Obama Riots), he will act as one who's hair is on fire.

Now go back to your cubby hole, write a memo, and analyze what I just articulated. The person who used the Emperors New Cloths analogy was right on target.

Hey 11:05a.m., I am not the poster you are arguing with, but where I work, I can guarantee that it will not be any of my family and if it should happen to be any significant person, they should not have been there either. Just do the paper and call it another day.

To FTO Bob...I know you Bob and you are a class act! Besides that the leadership of this dept has been nothing but a let down to us. They cry wolf constantly and never come through with what they say. Whenever they ask us "what we think?" nothing ever happens. It's all BS smoke and mirrors! They never listen to us because they are so smart. Why waste our time going to their "question and answer meetings" because it doesn't matter what we say! The FTO change is just another morale killer and I'm sure there are many more to come. There is no more trust in the leadership and what has happenened to this job is quite sad!

Trying to get the leadership to see the light and stop the downward fall of the department is like trying to empty the ocean with a spoon!!! So Sad

Again, you are the nimrod...There 9500+ POs (9161 pay code) then look at the PO's as Det, ET canine, FTO etc and you move to 11,000+ now factor in the sgt's, Lt's, Capt's and Commanders etc you are at 13000+ (13,200 something if I remember correctly)...Nobody has ever said there 13,500 blue shirts, just officers of all ranks and assignments.

9/17/2008 01:11:00 PM
________________________________

PAY CLOSE ATTENTION: The City no longer says '13,500 sworn'. It now says 'around 13,000 police employees'. That changed about a year ago.

I don't care WHAT Clear says. We've had a ton of attrition with almost zero new hires. The number CAN'T stay the same indefinitely, so somebody's lying.

And for the goof who keeps insisting 13, 500 means everybody, up to the First Deputy, we KNOW what it means. It's just not true. We can not possibly have 13,500 sworn on the job. When eight hundred leave and one hundred are higher, you have a net loss of seven hundred. When that happens over several years, you are not maintaining departmental strength and lying about it doesn't make it so.

SCC/ Because of you the under dog has a chance. I made a complaint about the lock up on this blog, it was read by a watch commander who immediately brought it to the attention of the district commander. Guess what no more problem, because they fixed the problem fearing scrutiny from downtown.
This blog has put the merit pukes in there places, it has been a news worthy outlet for every member of the department. Its better than the 24 hour reports because this blog serves a useful purpose for the working man and woman of this department.

How about the balls to take it to your Sgt who will bring it to the W/c, it is called chain of command. Just like a lot of people on this blog you like to complain but choose to do nothing but post a message, congrats your enabled

How come Donohue & J-Fed meet clandestinely for coffee????

9/17/2008 07:12:00 PM
++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++++
J-Fed doesn’t trust his own staff (Kirby etc.) Who he believes are reporting back to city hall. He also had his office swept for listens devices his first week. So the PPO has a enough brains that were not killed by roids not to trust the mayor. Donahue called and offered to bring the coffee and rolls and J-Fed told him NO we can meet at starbucks. That was the PPO’s idea. I walked into starbucks and had to do a double take myself on the way to class at IIT. The PPO looks so short sitting next to Donahue. Maybe Da mayor picked J-Feb because he is shorter.

Donahue told the membership at the next general meeting so their meetings have not been secret either. Don’t leave it up to your unit rep go to meetings yourself, go for yourself. Half of the reps don’t make 50% meetings that’s why they can’t run for lodge office. No smoking gun here.

9/17/2008 10:16:00 PM

We have a new unit rep in 051 Midway (JJ) who got elected so he can stand up to the new lt and he is winning so he says! But he never attends the meetings what a joke!

We need change, we need to know you will have our back no matter what the fuck goes on out there, when we are in the alleys, streets all god damn night working in the ghetto-infested districts. Because I can tell you right now that no one thinks you have their back, and that really makes a difference when you are working in the busy districts. We already have to worry about guns on the street, people fighting with us and so forth, but then we have to worry about every move we make and if we will still have our jobs!!!

Why do people keep posting about how many cops there are? How hard is it to find the real number if you want to? God, learn how to do some research instead of getting your information from the peanut gallery of a blog.

The constant crying about how many blue shirts vs. other ranks or assignments. Who cares? We know the numbers are down and Shortshanks isn't hiring. We also know that whatever comes out of the mouths of the pricks at shitty hall will be a fucking lie.

Try to focus on the issues which matter to us like the contract and pension.

O/T whats with the female POs working the female lockup in 005?
_________________________

To the SCC Blogger for 9/17/2008 04:54:00 PM:
Have you ever worked the female lockup? Not the most pleasant job, but I understand the frustration.

A well respected veteran officer once suggested that the Female area lockups should have a rotation of detailed officers from all the districts that are assigned to that area.
Great concept, since officers from gang, tact and rapids are sent to problematic districts, why not do the same with the problematic lockup?

Only a limited number of female POs are assigned to an area, usually the ones without the phone calls. It’s an additional task that we have to burden, getting off a late car the night before and having to return the next day to work the lock up with a much earlier start time. Add some court in the morning and you are truly screwed!

It's bad enough that the females assigned to an area not only get stuck working the lock-up, but when you are ACTUALLY working the street, you get called for guard detail. Usually it is a female, brought in by another district, from the lock-up to the hospital. I always feel so bad when working with my male partners, because we are going to get screwed either way when they need a female or male officer for a prisoner transport.

If detailing females from another district is too complicated, they should at least have the arresting district car meet the transporting car at the hospital and have one of their female POs sit on the prisoner, since the prisoner originally was arrested in that other district. This may alleviate the back log, and 3 cars in one district would not be down on guard details….

He was sworn in and that is why he has a star, can carry a gun, and wears the uniform.
As for enforcing the rules and regs; He is a city employee, required by ordinance to live in the city and as such subject to all rules and regs. Its just that nobody has the balls to write him/call him on this.
