Brain Drain Bites Department

So now we're hiring back people who had the knowledge to make things run semi-smoothly before, but weren't good enough to keep around when all the changes were happening. Oh, and he's not coming cheaply:
  • The Chicago Police Department's retired resident expert on security planning has been hired back -- this time on contract -- to quarterback Election Night planning that will culminate in Barack Obama's $2 million-plus extravaganza in Grant Park.

    Three years ago, Mayor Daley asked Neil Sullivan to overhaul the city's disaster and evacuation plans.

    Now, Sullivan is back as a consultant at a rate of $100-an-hour with a $60,000 cap.

So is this an admission that moving, demoting or forcing out certain persons was a shortsighted dumbass move by the mayor and his appointees? Or a direct poke at a certain CCG person who had been running the big events prior to this?

How soon until they hire back a few more of the old crew? For $100 an hour? It's almost like there isn't a budget crisis at all.

Money is not an issue, as the City is billing Obama's campaign for every penny.

Is it true that Car 47 has been telling officers that NOTHING is going to happen in Hutchinsen Field win or lose?

Remember the bullet hole thru the window of the Hotel?

Guess the spin doctors will make it unrelated to Obama...

We are witnessing the birth of a new nation. The USSA. United Socialist States of America.

Vote McCain

Remember when Mayor Daley hired J-Fed? Daley said that Supt. Jody Weis was an expert in the field of homeland security and anti-terrorist activity.

So if J-Fed is such an expert that his salary was increased to $300,000.00 a year, why are we paying for an outside consultant?

J-Fed was holding two post originally. Now he is down to one. Since we are paying him for this Homeland Security expertise, why go outside the department?

THIS IS A JOKE.

It shows the true colors of J-Fed and his inability to plan and execute a Chicago event.

Good for you Neil! A $100 bucks an hour couldn't happen to a better boss!

Stop whining. The Obama campaign is paying for the event. Although, your point about people being hired back who were forced out is valid.

Just think of this as overtime pay to help pay the bills. Unless some white supremacist nutjobs stage an attack I expect little activity. Perhaps a looted liquor store on the Westside just for old times sake.

I for one welcome our new Kansas Kenyan Kommunist overlord.

All Hail Barack. May his governing skill be as large as his ears and his ego. Or my ability to write silly sentences.

All I ask is that he double the number of FBI agents and Federal Prosecutors going after local corruption. Put the heat on the fat man on the fifth floor.

All Hail Barack.

I had a chance to see the entire Chicago Police Dept. Budget and where all the money is going. In 2007 the police budget was
1,241,672,574. The projected budget for 2009 is 1,212,844,483.
This is a reduction of 28,828,091.
A reduction in the police budget of more that 28 million dollars in just two years is astounding.

Sullivan represents everything that was wrong with the dept. before J-Fed. A conceited, drunk Irishman who treats his subordinates like crap. He has the distinction of being the ONLY male exempt rank member to fail the prescribed firearms qual. course. And this was when he was 2nd in command of HBT. Give me a break, this is not a quality leader by any means,

If he overhauled the system correctly then a new system would be in place to utilize and the city would not have to pay him the entire years salary of an employee who is being laid off.

When jfed/daley dumped bosses who had street smarts they were left with paper shufflers with degrees but no street smarts.....better to have Neil Sullivan or Jimmie maurer or Phil who know what they are doing and will not throw you under the bus than group of incompetents at HQ who can't even figure out day off groups and couldn't get out of parking lot without a driver..
remember cameras everywhere,do not raise batons over your head to strike anyone,stay cool.
good luck

This expert "Neil" the outer space moon walker is a great idea. This way if the shit hits the fan they can blame him instead of J-Klown or politico whores on the CPD. Or da mayor. Or alderwhores. When it goes bad.

Let's get Watch Your Back Lemon Head and Bonsai Buckaroo Willis too. Maybe they can try to make Supt in two years.

Here's my question to the brain-drain people: Today is 29 Oct, Wed,6 days until the eletion? WHERE'S THE FUCKING ORDER? You retards going to issue it on Monday? The operational units in the field who are going to protect this city should have at least a week to review what thier mission will be. Worst of all is the fact that if this order is like the others, it will be rewritten 3-4 times before we deploy. People, we're fucked. This city is fucked. I've been on long enough to see the westside black-out riots and all the Bull's shit. With the quality of cops and leaders we have now, we're going to have real problems if the shit hits the fan. Pucker up people, because the Shitcago doomsday clock is at 1 minute to midnight.

I would be more worried that groups outside of America will wreak havoc. It would be a perfect time for Al QUETA to attack, if they kill him the majority of the large cities in America will have riots.

Great theory, except he is up to his extra-large ears in corruption with Rezko, Blago, Daley etc. Really think he wants a strong and thorough investigation of Illinois and Chicago Machine politics? He will have some democrat firebrand prosecutor who is hell on wheels on "police brutality" and looks the other way at the machine's thieving ways. Buckle in, diversity is about to strike.

what in the world would possess the city to drag the alcoholic neil sullivan back for any purpose/if you knew anything about him you would know he left this department with former supt jim ogrady when he was a empty holster political hack sgt, to be a cook county jail boss...oh,then when the shit hit the fan at county,and ogrady going out...well neil decides 2wks before the next cpd Lt list posts; to apply for reinstatement/take a physical, and bamn comes back to us as a new Lt...a few months later,off to a new series of desk jobs and his grand finale commamder of 16....and by the way Flannigan was the boss who really prepared for the big soccer world cup riots that never materialzed in Chicago. my little story is true, and so what are we expecting this puffed up doofus to do when all hell breaks loose??? Can we cut our losses and let him and the goof that thinks he s needed be retired /laid off and get some guy Walton back or Dugan or anyone who has military training and not in an drunken stupor run this event, even if it isn't riotous, the horrible choice of venue and the stupid idea that the folks there won't be drinking and making music and number over a million strong and that trouble after midnight will be inevitable......wish I could just slap Daley up the side of his big stupid head and say "Wake up and put the real Police in charge" old wheelgun.
