Stealing Pension Money

Gee, no wonder our pension is in trouble:
  • ...was at the Pension Board today to get payout info and walked into a shitstorm. Fox news covering Ron Huberman's effort to get credit for his CTA service. Total Bullshit. Anyway, a copper named Mike Shields who is running for a Pension Trustee spot was all over it. He confronted Huberman face to face and even gave an interview to Fox 32 calling BS on Huberman's pension grab. This Shields guy even brought his own camera. He asked a Pension Board secretary (ON FUCKING CAMERA!!) why she gave Huberman a private office as a waiting room while a disabled female PO on crutches was made to stand. I never worked with this Shields guy, but he stood up for us, for sure.
    he has my vote. See if you can get the video SCC. Its got to be really funny.
Huberman, the butt of numerous jokes here, was a patrol officer for all of five or six years. He then left and came back with some wondrous computer knowledge that allowed the Police Department, which was mired in the technology of the late 1970's, to make a great leap into some bizarre Amish-based computer system that no one else uses, is incompatible with most known word processing programs, and was directly responsible for 3 degrees of global warming due to the massive amounts of trees killed for bullshit statistical reports.

We believe he returned as a civilian and was appointed to Assistant Deputy Superintendent, a five-step "promotion" that somehow skipped over Sergeant, Lieutenant, Captain and Commander spots. He also did a stint on the Mayor's staff (Chief of Staff) before going to the CTA to work with trains.

Now he wants our pension money? Cut him a check for his contributions and send him on his way. He's not vested. Who's this Shields guy? Here's the YouTube video. The sound isn't the best, but it's a damn entertaining video:



The last line about the Guardian Angels is the best.

UPDATE: FoxNews breaks the story into the mainstream. Let's see if anyone else picks up on it. And someone buy Retired Officer Underwood a beer - his expression of incredulity and disgust in the first 10 seconds of the Fox tape is the best.

this is one of the greatest videos on youtube! That was well thought of. It looked like Ronnie didn't see this coming at all. Fight the power Shields. You did a fine job.

Thank you Mike Sheilds for drawing attention to something that probablly 99% of us had no clue was going on. What a piece of shit that Luberman is.
You have my vote sheilds and please keep working that hard to expose these jagoffs that are trying to deplete our pension fund and to keep our pensions funded at sufficient levels.
Thank you.

Ive hear the rumor and now I believe it even more. Shortstanks want to dump Mass Transit and have the CTA reestablish thier own police, then Lil Ronnie can pension out as Chief.

What a fucking joke. The people on Occupational Disability have to wait 10 years for a raise,thanks to the FOP and all our great state politicians, but this goof thinks he should get the pension. Hey but the great FOP is going to get pension portability which helps out a few of their friends but the disabled don't get a raise and the FOP let the city openly violate the contract for many years by not making the city pay for the disabled police officers medication. Think about it, FOP has allowed the city to violate the law it is written in the labor contract that the city pay for disabled police medications, so do you people really believe these assholes at the FOP will even try to negotiate a good contract? Yeah the Brass bill, Huberman gets the pension and pension portability sure makes it look like the FOP has the working cops best interest at heart. Lets ask the FOP board if they ever went 10 years without a raise?????

Not only must this type of subterfuge NOT be allowed in this instance, but someone in a responsible legal capacity(like maybe the U.S. Attorney? Because it will never be the Cook Co. State's Atty) should investigate this as a public corruption case, which very probably involves more parties than merely Mr. Huberman. Who else is embezzeling, has embezzeled,or is attempting to embezzele our pension funds?

By majority (mayoral appointees) vote, the Pension Board will do Daley's bidding, regardless of the facts of the case.

I was impressed by Mike Shields, 019.

Notwithstanding, had FOX TV not been present with cameras rolling, a majority would have voted bogus "benefits" for that cocksucker on the spot.

From personal experience, watch out for that attorney David Kugler. He's treacherous and has no scruples.

He's cut from the same bolt of cheap canvas as Richard J. Brzeczek and Judas Iscariot. Right, Dick?

How do you guys tolerate this shit?

The "gold braid" provision is nothing more than legalized bribery from YOUR pension fund for the lifetime retirement of inept political hacks.

Great job by the officer in standing up for what's right. Hope he runs for a position in which he can do that for us regularly.

I'll say this about Ronnie. He kept his cool and didn't lose his bearing under fire. We should all take a lesson from this. Keep your cool in public and do what you have to do to get the job done.

It will be very interesting to see how this turns out. I'll be pissed if he can pull a pension out of a fund which officers had to work their asses off for years to be able to get. This is a bullshit move by a connected guy to drain our fund. How greedy can you be? Isn't it enough that he gets the choice spots with the huge salaries? I guess not. Stick it to the working cops.

Hey Ron, did you see that lady on the crutches? Did you see that retired thirty year vet? That's who you're taking the money from.

I know you don't care. You'll still look at yourself in he mirror and feel no shame. The rest of us will be ashamed for you, and of you.

I know for a fact, Hubermann is NO computer guy!

I used to work for him at Information Services Division a.k.a as the "Old" Data Systems Unit.

This guy has two Masters degree but NOT in computers or anything even close! His degrees are in social services and Humanities! Call up the registrars office at the University of Chicago and they can verify that! But, I know for a fact because they were on his office wall in HQ. proudly displayed! I really believe he just paid for them and that's it! He didn't learn a fucking thing other than to steal credit!

Hubermann is nothing more than a political hack thief who knows how to steal other peoples work and pass it off as his own!

Computer guy my ass, the S.O.B. couldn't even download a simple anti-virus program and all you have to do is press one button!

I hope this hearing wasn't posted on SCC and got lost to the waste side with other topics. I for one would of been there had I known. This Huberman is a real piece of shit, to think after serving only 5 yrs. with the department he should drain our pension because he claims being the head of the CTA is somewhat related to police work. It is a slap on the face to every police officer who puts their life on the line everyday and the HEROS who have lost their lives for this city.
Huberman has learned very fast from the Daley machine on how to steal money from hard working men and women even if you are well off and do not need the money. If he has a inch of decency in his bones he should be truly ashamed of himself, apologize, and withdraw this absurd notion that he is entitled to a part of our pension.
Also Larry Ellen from Fox news let me ask you this, How did this Huberman with less than 5yrs. on the police department by-pass promotions to sergeant and lieutenant and be promoted straight to exempt? why does every other exempt member climbs through those ranks and then becomes an exempt members. Who are Ronnie's parents, what political clout do they have, and how much do they contribute to Daley's campaign? What qualification and education did/does he have to run the second largest transportation system in the U.S.? I guarantee you that if King Daley hasn't been voted out or has a major heart attack Huberman will land another High position in City management. Just follow the bodies, Chico, Monique Bond, Trotter, Orozzco, etc.... Let this fucker draw a pension from the CTA he is closer to being a bus operator than he ever was to being TH POLICE, FUCK YOU HUBERMAN!!!!!!!

This goes on every board meeting, next month it will be another one of Daley’s boys stealing YOUR pension money, again. There are only a few officers that show up every month, it is a shame. That board room should be filled with coppers every month. Everyone is crying about their pension, but nobody wants to go to a pension board meeting.
Accommodations have to be made, if 1 or 100 officers are there they have to let you in during the meeting.
Our elected trustee’s need to be held accountable. The decision for this should never have been held over until next month. It should have been DENIED, end of story.
They did not want to make a decision because the cameras were there. They are hoping they can slide it in under the radar next month.
Mike, you have my vote. Good Luck!

Mike Shields did a nice job here but beware of what you wish for.

C'mon Ralphie, do some INTELL and help the Patrol Division already.
Word on the 2nd floor in Homan Square is that you finished your application process and decided to only go with about 10 "office type" coppers who never worked patrol? What??? More do-nothing CLOUT babies! Hey Ralphie, if you were INTELLIGENT, you would have snatched up some home grown 011 coppers who knew the streets! Take the Shields kid for instance. The kid has cajones galore. He could help you get INTELL to fight the scum on the street. Or didn't you know that?
Ralphie, Ralphie, Ralphie...
Why the FUCK did you even post an ad in the Daily Bulletin for months, if you didn't want coppers from Patrol Division?

The date is set for Wednesday, October 8,2008 at 1000hrs.

Be there rain or shine if you care about your/our safety, contract, rights, family and the City of Chicago. Please bring relatives, friends,coworkers,retirees and anyone who cares about the quality of life in the City of Chicago. Three murdered Chicago Police Officers in two months is too much to bear.

Design your own signs and keep them courteous and respectful.

The reason for selecting this date is simple:

The next meeting of the Chicago City Council is scheduled for Wednesday October 8,2008 at 10:00a.m.


The NYPD has had great success in the past demonstrating at One Police Plaza and at New York City Hall.

Please conduct yourselves in a respectful and courteous manner.

Don't know this guy SHIELDS but I would like to say, what a ballsie move. I hope he does not get hurt because of political pressures.

Back when the City Wide Team swept the election they had some fire. Some good things got done. Things have slipped to business as usual. Keep suppporting Dummycrates. It will help the few in the office that will move on to greener pastures (especially Mark).

Where is the leadership? Kick in the door of the Mayor's office and demand that he talk with us. Never happened and never will.

SCC, I'm not sure but I do remember seeing on the resignation lists approximately last October, that Ron Huberman had officially resigned from the Police Dept.
I remember thinking back then how strange since he had been Daley's Chief of Staff for some time and only recently been given the spot at CTA.
I would like to see the explanation for how Huberman got to remain listed as still being an employee for the Police Dept and be on the Mayor's staff and then Director of the CTA.
I dont know if those lists are kept on file or even how to retrieve them but it would be great info for the citizens and even some of the useless reporters that occasionally visit this site.
The citizens need to know and if for no other reason than to shed the light on this cockroach-like thief trying to snatch our already meager crumbs.

I spoke with Mike Shields this afternoon. I first met Mike after he came to 018 from 011. Even then, Mike impressed me as an articulate yet grounded and modest young man who could prove to be an invaluable asset as a spokesman for the CPD rank-and-file.

Huberman and Weis are merely Shortshanks' shameless "empty suit" sycophants.

If you guys don't seize the opportunity and get behind Shields, you will only have yourselves to blame for an ignominious fate as Daley's doormat.

I also left two messages with Mr. Huberman's secretary this morning. He has yet to return my phone calls.

Finally, the cocksucker (aka "obviously Shields") at 11:31 AM has no credibility whatsoever. The anonymous comment should be summarily dismissed as that of a disgruntled agent provocateur. If you have any cojones, identify yourself and stop hiding behind a keyboard.

Shana tova, Mr. Huberman. I must say you've certainly got a lot of chutzpah to try and pull off such a transparent and outrageous pension scam.

No one seemed to notice that Huberman was not attempting to collect a pension. He was attempting to have his time at the mayor's office and CTA considered pensionable for years of service. Which means we have not seen the last of Huberman. If he is looking to add to his years of service that can only mean he is coming back. With the olypic commitee still deliberating it wouldn't be surprising if Daley attempted to hire some sort of mass transit specialist to take control over the CTA in an attempt to right the ship. If that were to happen Ronnie would be sent packing, probably to a position where he could closely observe our favorite feeb. This move would serve multiple purposes, Ron would be another set of eyes and ears for Da Mare all the while Huberman picks up the remaining years he needs to obtain a pension from our fund.

I just wanted to commend you on your Youtube video. We all knew you would one day make a difference in CPD. We were classmates in the Academy (00-7F) years ago and even then you always showed great leadership potential!
I agree with many of these posters. You should run for FOP President. My reason is simple. You are from a police family. I believe you are fourth generation? That, in and of itself, displays professionalism and commitment to CPD. That's what being a leader is all about...sacrifice and commitment. Stay strong!

Here are the facts: The four Board members elected by the various ranks and the retired had the votes to deny Huberman yesterday. One of the City Trustees, "Axe Man" Volpe, was missing. So, what did these trustees that we all elected do? They voted to defer the decision so City Hall could round up its votes and shove it up our asses at the next meeting. Throw all incumbents off the Pension Board!!! They are all City Hall puppets.

Shields bashers: in light of the real issue of what this post is all about your isolated personal attacks on Officer Shields are extremely petty. Handle any business you might have with him face to face or let it go. Either way, try to see the bigger picture here. David just took a swipe at Goliath and landed a solid hit armed not with a sling and stone but with a camera and courage. The shock wave of this event could potentially be far reaching by affecting not only all current and future pensioners but aspects of our department as a whole.

I doubt Officer Shields will encounter any significant backlash from the powers that be. Any sudden or inexplicable changes of assignment or SPARs, CRs, suspensions, etc. out of line with past disciplinary history will only provide grounds for a lawsuit. Shields seems savvy enough to keep a paper and video trail of documented events that would lead him to vindication.

Officer Shields, nicely done. You’ve earned a lot of support and respect from your fellow officers.

Sorry SCC, but I don't see too many posts that hae this story correct. Huberman is trying for one of two things:
1. He is trying for a double pension. He will pay into the police pension every year until he can get a pension and then he will collect two. YES 2. The police pension and the pension from the other city agency he is working for.
2. He is coming back to the cpd, in an exempt spot of course and wants the time credit.
Either way it's wrong.
Humberman:
Entered the academt Jul 1995.
Assigned to 024 from Dec 1995 - Mar 1996??
Took a leave of absence for school for a year.
Came back as the Assistant Director of Infomration Services (a civilian position that does not pay into our Sworn Police Pension) for about 6 months.
Director of same for 2 years(Civilian Position)?
Miraculously made Deputy Sup in 2002.
Left to be the Director or Assistant Director of OEC for about 6- 8 months Non police/not sworn position.
He then left there to be Chief of Staff to Mayor for 2.5 - 3 years. (Not police)
Then took over CTA (not police.)
The Fox news piece says he's trying to get his time counted as pensionable time and says he has 9 years will the police department. NOT TRUE. He is trying to either get a double pension or credit for service not worked.
Don't be suprised if he gets it, there is precident.
Two current Chicago Aldermen paid into and One Senator pays into pension while on leave. Both of those alderman collect both a City of Chicago Aldermanic pension and a Police pension. The Senator expects to do the same. YES THEY DO. They did not have to work two jobs to collect two pensions, but they recieve two. Sounds like a crime to me, but approved by our pension board. I believe this should have a seperate post so someone with the means and access can confirm this an possible start an investigation.
(Hint, all three were one time police officers for CPD) Know who they are?

The only one who didn't vote to table was Steve Robbins who does not want Huberman to get this. All other elected officials went along. Steve also voted to give the copper looking for duty disability the 75%, the only elected member who voted for this deserving officer who will now get 50%. Steve is the only stand up guy on the Board.

Look at how the pension board reps vote. The FOP rep Robbins is a rubber stamp for approval of any PO trying for disability. It is nice he is backing up the POs but lets face it not everyone deserves a Disability pension. We need people who will spend our pension money wisely not like Robbins or any other FOP backed trustee.

The deciding vote would then go to John Gallager (?). The head of your pension board. He is the guy in the video making the statement like if you have any questions come to me not my staff. Well he should answer the phone when an officer has a question then.

He should be flooded with calls too if he has to make the final decision. While your at it. Calls should should be be made about the pension board attorney. He is NO FRIEND of the police. He treats disabled officers terrible, and your trustees allow it. He needs to go, for years he has treated disabled offices without clout disrespectful. Robbins and Lazarro were supposse to change that, but that didn't happen. I hope Mike Sheilds wins for trustee and gives them hell. But first we all must vote. The ballots are being sent out next week.

Just left a message for Steve Robbins at the pension board. I told him if they grant Hubermans pension grab there will be hell to pay and he and the rest of the current pension board will be voted out. Is there a way to call for an entire FOP official recall at the next meeting. What are the rules and procedures of getting the ball rolling for a no-confidence vote or impeaching.

Mike Shields did a nice job here but beware of what you wish for. He is the same guy that berated an off duty P.O and called a sgt on scene because the guy went the wrong way down a one way after a cubs game. He wanted to get a CR on the guy! His arrogance is going to get even more out of control than it already is with all this praise.

I've known Mike and the rest of the Shields crew since they were kids. The whole lot of them are stand-up people, starting with "Just Joe" the BEST boss ever. All of them are sharp, hard-working, and tough. If any of them have a problem, you bet your ass you're going to know about it and something is going to be done, quickly and probably loudly. That's the kind of person I want watching out for my money, someone NOT AFRAID to make waves.

And if Mike ever gets a big head about anything, we can all count on his brother Dan and his dad to set him straight. I actually wish Dan would run too, the whole system would be turned on its head and those meeting a lot more interesting.
