Boneheaded Move

  • Mayor Daley on Thursday issued a sarcastic blanket apology for the alleged torture of suspects by former Chicago Police Lt. Jon Burge.

    “The best way is to say, ‘Okay. I apologize to everybody [for] whatever happened to anybody in the city of Chicago.’… So, I apologize to everybody. Whatever happened to them in the city of Chicago in the past, I apologize. I didn't do it, but somebody else did it. Your editorial was bad. I apologize. Your article about the mayor, I apologize. I need an apology from you because you wrote a bad editorial,” Daley said, laughing.

    “You do that and everybody feels good. Fine. But I was not the mayor. I was not the police chief. I did not promote him. You know that. But you've never written that and you’re afraid to. I understand.”

First up, Burge has only been charged and the case looks weaker than Daley's chin.

Second, does the mayor really want to issue such a half-assed statement like this? Does he really want people to start connecting him to scandals that have and are occurring while he is the mayor? Involving people he has promoted? That Teflon coat he wears like a shield has to be wearing thin in spots. The Sun Times and Tribune have been poking a bit harder that usual over interconnected scandals and who knows how many of the 1,000 layoffs are going to have axes to grind that might have actual information for intrepid reporters or Federal prosecutors?

We certainly hope someone shoves this "apology" right up the mayor's ass.

Sorry, off topic, but speaking of bone headed moves, what's the deal with this softball captain in the 20th district on third watch? This assclown has been stirring up shit by splitting up partners and dumping veteran officers off their cars and putting them on the desk. His excuse is that he wants people to be trained to work the desk and cops not to get too comfortable working with just one steady partner. Of course, this guy has a bull's asshole for a mouth since non of the desk regulars are being made to work the street. This captain is just another evil prick, micro-managing the watch, only letting cops take time due if their activity is up to his standards. Heard he was a real toolbox when he worked in 14 also, pulling the same shit. Seems he was butt buddy's with Commander Avila, the same L.A.P.A loser that fucked shit up in 025 until Rivera came back and took the beef out of his taco. So kiddies, if you like ten hour days and super-jagoff bosses, bid to 20!!!!!

Why is the Chicago media reporters so afraid of this midget prick?

A white Mayor of a major US city is laughing and joking about making an apology about a white police commander torturing black men? IF IT HAPPENED OR NOT, how does this jackass Mayor get away with it?

Isn't there one reporter who has balls and who doesn't care if he is invited to the next free Mayoral dinner who can ask the Mayor after his joking... That was real funny Mr. Mayor. I love the way you joked and laughed about a very serious situation that has cost the city 50 million dollars plus so far and infuriated the black community... But now will you answer the damn question?

Not one of these no balls, no guts and no ounce of intelligence reporters will ever ask the Mayor to answer the question.

You know the Mayor is cornered and you know the Mayor is hiding something when he pulls this stunt. This is his trademark avoidance of the question trick. And not one reporter will pull a rabbit out of their own hat to end this non-sense answering of questions by the Mayor!

In Sun Times, it was reported we have the highest murder rate, more than NY and LA. J-FEDS response? Too much paperwork inventorying prisoner's property? Ya think he is clueless? Aunt bea also backed him up. Officers rather be on street than filling out paperwork! This is our current leadership. Blame the very high murder rate on paperwork delays. Not huge shortage of officers nor the complete lack of morale. layoff more civilians and stop hiring new officers is acceptable. But completing inventory forms? OMG! Ignore broken down cars, no PDT's. In July, JFED called street officers "timid". Now I can't wait to make arrests and earn aunt Bea's respect.

Another bonehead move are the TMA's.

Leaving the Hawks game the other night I came to Ogden/Adams. Traffic was running e/b on Adams which is normally one way w/b. This was a good move to hasten the egress of the UC.

The problem started at the Ogden/Adams intersection. The TMA at the signal control box held the e/w light red for 4 minutes. The problem being that only 2 cars traveled on Ogden. Once the TMA switched the signal we sped to a stop at the next signal north. Again, the TMA was overriding the traffic signal holding traffic. The same problem, there was no cross street traffic, but the light was held red for several minutes.

This pattern continued to Lake street. If you are going to have TMA's they should be trained.

What a joke they are!
But, we all know they are just moor patronage hires.

Daley has done the sarcastic mocking answer with his stooges all laughing behind him for so long its nice to see the media and people getting sick of it. According to the book,"Moral History of the 20th Century", Chairman Mao and Joseph Stalin both did the same thing, although they had tighter control of the media. The similarities are chilling; thank God we only have a feudal lord to reign over our dieing city. Everyone report to the re-education camps after the big rally downtown.

More Officers on the street? When is someone going to look at how many people work inside on the desk and lockups and caps offices in these northside districts. Its unbelieveable. Sometimes more than 8 officers are assigned desk duties. This whole department is becoming the biggest joke in a city thats known as the joke by the lake. Not to mention what goes on inside 35th and Mich. Lets just keep giving our pals the DC's more people to work in plain clothes and do nothing or very little all day. (neighborhood relations.)

What was the Deputy's response? "I have asked for them but it has fallen on deaf ears at HQs."

I say let all of A/2 burn and then rebuild it from the ashes. Is A/2 any indication of what is going on in the rest of the department?

Oh by the way my morale is in the pot-o-potty, Richie!

This is the mayor we get when 78% of the voters do something else on election day besides vote. Of those left, 80% voted for Daley. So you all have Richard M Daley shoved down your throats by 17.6% of the voters.

17.6% of the registered voters get to decide how the rest of us get fucked. Remember this next election day.

It is the same with the pension board election and the FOP elections. In the Feb 2008 FOP election 38% of active officers returned their ballots. 62% couldn't be bothered with even sending the stamped envelope back in!

The majority throw their ballots away. Then they go on the blog and complain.

Remember these dates:

next mayoral election: Feb 2011

next FOP election: Mar 2011

If CPD officers want a good selection of candidates to vote for as FOP leadership then the time is NOW to organize, put together a slate, learn the issues and get your message out there. Otherwise it will be the same old thing. The very few get to decide for the many because most people can't be bothered.

Make it so that if your a valet for burke/daley/treasuer they work overtime on the regular job then come and suck more from the patrolmen making the D-3 rate, sgts pay plus all the overtime! Then we have the D-2 and D2a dics, doing the smae thing hey boss like 35th st states "If they want to work it ok but d-1 pay, by seniority." Another great idea boss now just put out the order! While I was perusing the D-2 people why is there a female at midway making D-2 pay doing the same job as the other officers? Would she not be better unitlized as a fto or other job that requires her expertise? OR is this another case of "we will not touch her due to massive clout"?

I read the Eric Zorn story yesterday and after hearing how Flint Taylor set up the Burge and his detectives I would not recommend any p.o. who is named in a lawsuit submit to a deposition.
We are entitled to the 5th Amendment protections also.

This is the same Flint Taylor who testified last year at 26th Street that he does a cost benefit analysis prior to accepting a client to make sure that he can make money.

I also have strong belief that Taylor works with his clients that they provide the information he needs to win, it might be subordination of perjury if they change their initial story after he tells them they cannot win with the original story.

How dare you claim that the socialist rat Richard DurBin has a drop of Irish blood. My mother's maiden name DurKin is Irish. I'm ashamed of Daley, Burke and Madigan.

Neither of the U.S. senators from Illinois, the governor nor the congressmen "representing" the City of Chicago have ancestry tracing to the Auld Sod.

As far as I'm concerned, you can take all Democrats, regardless of ethnicity, and rocket all of them to Saturn.

The first name of the U.S. Attorney is "Patrick" (not "Peter")

To those of you that claim that CPD MORALE* is low: WRONG!

MORALE is non-existent.

* = this includes the goof that keeps on misspelling moralE as M-O-R-A-L.

When the TMAs are controlling the boxes, it's at the direction of the supervisor, on the radio. A supervisor who often can't see the traffic flow from wherever they happen to be.

I agree they're useless. The ones who worked the Dan Ryan detail would stand on the curb and 'direct traffic' from there. Supervisors would swing by and order them into the street and they would migrate back to the curb when the supervisors left.

Working? You can't direct traffic from the corner sidewalk like the TMA @ ROOSEVELT& THE RYAN.

We had a two hour block of instruction & went out the next day. No Problem, Directing Traffic isn't rocket science.
But you need to get on the street& apply yourself. I'll take a recruit two weeks out of the academy over one of these TMAS.
