The Reorganization (and Morale)

A lot of rumors popping up in yesterday's post. Here's what the papers are saying:
  • [Tribune] The administration wants to eliminate the position of First Deputy and consolidate all department units under two Assistant Superintendents, one for administration and one for operations, according to the budget released today.
  • [Sun Times] The current first deputy superintendent — who has traditionally run the department from day to day — would become the assistant superintendent of operations.

    In another major change, the department would eliminate the Bureau of Strategic Deployment, which oversees the Targeted Response Unit, public transportation, the airports, the marine unit and the new Mobile Strike Force.

What needs to be revealed is how many gold star spots is this going to eliminate. And how much of their staff is going to be put back in the Districts. Certain bosses have entire contingents of people who have done nothing but follow them around their entire careers. Dollies, drivers and assorted hangers-on of all ranks. If there are spots being eliminated, we have cars that need filling in Patrol.

BONUS! Somehow, the mayor reorganized morale at the same time:
  • Daley also addressed a growing sentiment among the rank-and-file that morale is at a low point.

    "No," the mayor said. "The morale is good."

So we'll have no more talk on the blog about how morale sucks and other such nonsense. Shortshanks says that morale is not an issue, so be quiet about it.

UPDATE: Interestingly, one of our readers posted this three days ago in the comment section of "Rumors Rumors Everywhere"
  • Bureaus:
    Patrol Division
    Investigation Division
    Administration Division

Not far off the mark. So whoever posted this, your steaming pile of crow is waiting for you. Bring a fork:
  • Supt. Jody Weis isn't going anywhere. All rumors. And the shit about going to two bureaus, bullshit too. Your wasting ink SCC.

Anyone feel like betting against of a few of the other speculations in the "Rumor Gaining Traction" post?

Watched the j-fed "dump" video looks like the sword ahs swung and many ads, will be "gone"! Looks like all the huge 140-170K gold braid pensions will be history! Maybe another 20-25 lts and sgts to fill in the districts! Plus all the extra cars could be put into patrol! Hey mayor you have 2 commanders for what 22 guys, what a waste how about 1 sgt this would save $300,000+ per year! Come on mayor do as I say not as I do! Heard also some commanders and C.O.'s will be removed why waste a free take home car? Finally the chickens have come home to roost! "Gotta love it" all the suckasses heading back to district patrol, now eliminate some of the hidden worthless units that would mean real reform!

I still don't think that Judas is going anywhere. $310k a year is tough to swallow, especaly if he aint doing anything! I think J Fed might just be the Mayors whipping boy till the bitter end. Jody gets fired, he is still getting $310k a year, till the end. Speaking of whipping boy, the beatings will continue untill morale improves!

SCC: any way you can put a countdown meter on your home page untill we get a new Supt. (2years 3months 15days untill the new boss) ? Just asking....

Hey, Shear's desk bitch: Remember when I posted this at the Vacancies thread...
Here's some suggestions-are you
paying attention Alderman Carothers?
Dump ALL Deputy Supts
Keep the Supt, 1st Dep and only chiefs of
Patrol and Investigations, then
Dump chiefs of CAPS and IAD
Dump all ADS and Deputy Chief spots-wastes of money,
Downgrade Commanders to Captains-keep them at captain salary-give them a small duty availability stipend, a SMALL take home car and that's it!!!
Captains can run commands and function as on call ADS
Merge Vice, Narcotics OCD and Intelligence and DOC into one unit
Have a captain command the unit
and Lieutenants be COs for each section
Lieutenants can run watches totally eliminate useless field lieutenants and Inspectors positions
assign tact lieutenants to areas- have
make sergeants or IAD agents do quality control
civilianize court section put those PO's back on the street
Dump sworn officers out of medical sections,Finance, Fleet-put them back onto the street
cut CAPS to the bone have area offices for CAPS
close 12,13,19,21 and 23 merge those districts into 2,11, 14,20,24
oh, and dump JFED and his fed buddies-get an out of town COP to be the Supt.

Reorganization? I think it was more than 12 years ago that Chuck Ramsey when applying for Superintendant wanted to cut the department into two Dep. Sup. jobs and eliminate the other 4. This was probably the reason he didn't get the superintendants job. He didn't get the job because this didn't sit well with then 1st deputy John Townsend ( one of shortshank Daley's closet friends and confidant from bridgeport.) Ramsey's plan if I recall would have eliminated many exempt spots that belonged to many political hacks on the department. Anyone on this department sees the waste going on daily. Commanders offices and caps offices are over crowded. Anyone ever wonder why 5 caps officers have to start at 7am and have weekends off. How about cutting it down to 3 or 4 all in day off groups and have starting times that stagger. No way should any of these officers start at 7 am. The starting times should be 9am to 5 PM, 10 am to 6 pm, and 11 am to 7 pm. This would also eliminate the 2 afternoon caps spots and put these lazy people back on the street where they are needed. Tehy argue that they are there to fill in on the watch if needed. Give me a break when was the last time anyone saw a caps officer in uniform let alone filling in on the watch. And what about that...Why the hell are all these people not working in uniform. ( Commnader office, caps office, review.) Is this so they can take longer lunches and shopping breaks. If they were in uniform and went to lunch outside the district station it might give the appeareance of having more officers on the street. I mean afternoons caps officers come in at 2 pm and work untill about 8 pm....this only lets the 2nd watch caps officers leave an hour early everyday. The 3rd watch caps officers then work maybe until about 8 pm...but thats a stretch on most days. These staggered hours would be when people would most want to deal with neighborhood issues...not at 7 am. When is someone going to investigate why these northside districts are taking the senior citizens to the gambling boats...Should the dept. be condoning this let alone sponsering it. Oh well enough for me..I'm beat after all this complaining. Stay Safe.

I have not clout and could have told anyone with common sense that if the dept was going to reorganize only 3 bureaus are needed. Bureau of Investigation, Bureau of Patrol, and the Bureau of Administration. That would be to much like right but in tough times maybe Da Mayor will do the right thing.

I would be smiling for a month if this did happen. The amount of assholes who would lose their gold star or cushy desk spot would be incredible. I can't imagine the retirements either. Lets just think how many losers would hit the medical as well. The street is calling all the cowards. Its scary out there. Justice is a bitch!!!!

Why does anyone in this City pay attention to these people? If we just ignore them maybe they will just go away, or at least stop calling the police and fire departments.

Instead the City will hang out to dry the lowly beat car that got dispatched the job as damage control. This is sadly the American way, put the blame on someone else. I have no job, I smoke crack and drink 40's all day---Its the government's fault, it can't be my fault that I am lazy and poor.

Rather than root for destruction of our CPD brothers you should take a look at just WHAT these new people have brought to the table, initiatives? No. Any significant policy change? No. THEY should be the ones you root to have demoted. While our people lose their units, these guys remain in tact - its going to get alot worse. NO CPD officers that moved through the ranks of this job to govern us, only inexperienced and basically civilian bosses that someone gave a uniform and a command to. We out to stick together. I read alot on this blog about the Mayor and the liberals getting the department they wanted, well I turn that on us too. We are getting the department we have wanted and our lack of united we stand - which includes standing up for our CPD bosses, has brought about the deterioration of anything meaningful on this job.

Also, why are POs assigned as phone bitches in units 606, 603 and 608 not in uniform? The early duck with the extra SGT that works 3-4 hours a day every other day? I think perhaps yes.

Daley also addressed a growing sentiment among the rank-and-file that officers' spirits are at a low point. "The morale is good," Daley countered.

thank god, our honorable mayor came forth and cleared up that concern of mine. i really feel better now. see all this talk of low morale was just a rumor started on the scc blog. shame on all you that bought into it and kept it going. i'm going out now to write movers and parkers for the great man.

OFF TOPIC: With the Presidential election coming up, I know most of us are going to get out there and vote. Most of us will vote for McCain. With that being said we are actually wasting our vote since Illinois is notoriously a Blue state and Obama resides here, there's no doubt its going towards Obama. Considering that, I propose the following: Why don't we, McCain voters, write in a candidate, such as Dave Sneethen. He was a great PO & Sgt, former Marine who served in Vietnam and beat lung cancer! Lets give it a shot. Why waste your vote on McCain, when we can waste it on Sneethen! It would be fun to see how many he can get.

The Lts Association does not have to be on board because it does not affect any current Lts. as far as seniority or salary. It will save a million instead of giving a test.

Why on earth does the Chicago Police Department need to pay sworn police officers who carry a badge and a gun to show soccer moms how to attach their baby seat in their car?

This is the type of shit our community policing office does. Sickening. We could have three more cars up on afternoons with the dead weight in Community Policing and the Commander's office.

Three two person cars that is!

Instead they are wasting time and resources by stealing police officer jobs.

Let's see, three cars a district, 25 districts, that's 75 beat or rapid response cars manned city wide! Instead they are installing car seats. That is a luxury we can no longer afford.

I would tell community policing: Hit the streets or hit the bricks and go apply at Wal-mart.

Look for ADS T.O'Keefe to be the Admin guy.
Take a good look at what he's in charge of now. Almost everything not patrol-like is under his command.

Better get used to the squad cars you're driving. The city didn't buy any new ones, except for the big SUV types that some of the bosses are driving. If they go down, they are not a real priority with Fleet Management. It used to Motor Maintenence. Those guys took care of the police.

The outcall techs in Info Services has been privatized. Your PC broke? Well some guy from a private company will come out and take it back and you might not see it for a while.

Alot has been downsized and combined like Graphic Arts. Much of that will be done by City General Services. You won't be ordering your copies from Graphics Arts much longer.

Police Mail is messed up if you're not in a police facility. Gen Services will pick up police mail that has evidence in it and let it sit around for a few un monitored hours in their office at Sedgwick before they get around to sending it off to say 26th n Cal or Daley Center. I can see court papers and DUI documents go missing or altered. Hello defense attorneys.

Open your eyes. O'Keefe is Daley's guy and a civilian. He thinks like one and has no clue about what ancillary police units do and with a strike of his pen - it's a done deal.

HOLY SHIT! I just watched that channel 7 I-Team interview with Weis....It certainly appears that Sup. Weis did endorse a political candidate while in his official capacity as a Chicago Police Officer. "He's our Senator, and he's hopefully going to be our next President..."

Rule 42 prohibits participating in any partisan political campaign or activity.

The question is, is what Weis said a violation? Stating a preference (endorsement) of a candidate in an official capacity, can that be construed as participaing in a partisan political activity?

If it is, I don't know.

If it is, though it is also a violation of Rule 22 for anyone who knows about this to not report this violation to the Department.

At the least, it is a bonehead statement for a man who was a career employee of an organization that allegedly prides itself on political neutrality and objectivity, and he should have known better.

The real question is whether or not the media will call him on it. Don't count on the suntimes to.

A new mayor, alderman and Superintendent with a contract will certainly help the morale issue upwards. Also some increased liability protections for doing the job will bring everything back to normal balance of good vs. evil doers.

Last time I saw a POS CAPS person in unifirm, when during a scam deployment. Cowardly M/2 from 001 working Beat 159 that wouldn't back-up a fellow PO during an arrest. Get rid of all of them, if they can't cut it on the street, bye-bye mother-fucker.

Reading this shit on this thread has me convinced, more than ever, that the place to be is gone from the CPD as soon as my measly pension has grown just a few more percent.

Jesus H. Christ, how I will love leaving all this behind! I won't miss a bit of this shit, not one little bit! The Department I hired on years ago is gone, gone, gone. This doesn't even resemble the job I once had. A few of the faces are similar but older and with gray hair.

There is no pride, no camaraderie, no cohesiveness, nothing at all like it was years ago. No one seems to love coming to work anymore, no one, including yours truly. I once had a partner and we had so much fun every day I didn't like to take a day off for fear I might miss something. No kidding. We started laughing around 1515 hrs and it continued until around 2300 hrs. And we were in our cars heading home at 2305 hrs, not circling the station waiting for fucking 2315 so we can checkoff.

Jesus, and that fucking swipe system, can you believe that? It isn't connected to anything and there most people are, dutifully swiping in every day. I have yet to swipe in once! And guess what, no one has said shit to me about it! That's how bogus it is.

And I am supposed to go up to some shithead in a car and say "Hello, I am officer Tightpanty from the Chicago Police Department and I stopped you for being a piece of scum in my city." Give me a fucking break. That's the way some fucking pussy suburban police department does it, not me, not here.

I can remember doing a stop with a gun in some motherfucker's face and he dared not move because he knew you would blow him to hell if he did. No more. The CPD will have to start shooting a whole lot more of them before control is obtained once more, if that can ever happen again.

Makes me want to fucking vomit!

And morale? In the toilet, at an all time low, I have never in a quarter century seen it this bad, honestly. Fuck you Richard M. Daley, you fucking corrupt lying cock sucker!

Why does anyone in this City pay attention to these people? If we just ignore them maybe they will just go away, or at least stop calling the police and fire departments.

A good question. The answer seems to be: an overabundance of Liberalism

The Chicago media market is comprised entirely of Liberals, with few exceptions (one notably: John Kass). This acts as an echo chamber for the 'progressive' message. Race, class, gender issues are given primacy throughout the media establishment. Black ministers are therefore considered a sancrosanct source of wisdom and opinion.

From the activist collaborations of Bill Ayers and his fellow academic Marxists, to the latte limosine liberal set who comprise Hyde Park and other enclaves, to even ordained members of the Catholic Archdiocese (Pfleger, Greely, etc) - it is no exaggeration to say that this is all part of what is the most entrenched Leftwing Establishment this side of Cuba.

SCC, I have obtained a draft copy of the speech that Supt. Weis has prepared to deliver the new Mobile Strike Force upon their eve-of-battle:


We go to liberate not to conquer. We will not fly our flags on their turf. We are entering The South Side to free a people and the only flag which will be flown in that ancient land is their own. Show respect for them.

There are some who are alive at this moment who will not be alive shortly. Those who do not wish to go on that journey, we will not send. As for the others I expect you to rock their world. Wipe them out if that is what they choose. But if you are ferocious in battle remember to be magnanimous in victory.

The South Side is steeped in history. It claims the orign of the Flaming Hot Cheeto, of the Purple Soda and the birthplace of Larry Hooover. Tread lightly there. You will see things that no man could pay to see and you will have to go a long way to find a more decent, generous and upright people than the South Siders. You will be embarrassed by their hospitality even though they have nothing. Don't treat them as refugees for they are on their own turf. Their children will be poor, in years to come they will know that the light of liberation in their lives was brought by you.

It is my foremost intention to bring every single one of you out alive but there may be people among us who will not see the end of this campaign. We will put them in their sleeping bags and send them back. There will be no time for sorrow.

The enemy should be in no doubt that we are his nemesis and that we are bringing about his rightful incarceration.

It is a big step to take another human life. It is not to be done lightly. I know of men who have taken life needlessly in other conflicts, I can assure you they live with the Mark of CR# upon them. If someone surrenders to you then remember they will certainly file a beef to ensure that one day they cash in on the Ghetto Lotto.

If you harm the Department or its history by over-enthusiasm in killing or in cowardice, know it is your family who will suffer. You will be shunned unless your conduct is of the highest for your deeds will follow you down through history. We will bring shame on neither our uniform or our city.

As for ourselves, let's bring everyone home and leave The South Side a better place for us having been there.

Our business now is South

Read this article. Though it is lengthy, it details an instance when a scumbag tried to run over our guys. What kind of medals and awards did Ramsey pass out, you ask? He tried to fire the involved officers for defending their own lives.

I'm sure you will think differently of the man.

Jesus, I hope you never get the paper on a police involved shooting. You can hardly tell you are responding to a post. This guy is talking about apples and you are talking about oranges. At least attempt to develop a semi-intellectual argument if you are attempting to refute what someone else has posted.

I am not claiming sides, I see faults with both Clinton and Bush. This man, most probably an officer, has lost a considerable sum of money. Now he will most likely have to work a few more years in order to regain what he has lost.

Sure Clinton didn't have the balls to attack bin Laden, but don't forget, those were different times. Nobody imagined anyone would fly a plane into a building, until a report was filed by a FBI agent in August 2001. Most thought that was unthinkable, and it was, but nonetheless it did happen. But, by calling a fellow officer names, you have proven to be what the downfall of this department is, poison.

Furthermore, nobody imagined the American markets would decline so quickly.

Here are the largest drops in the history of the American markets... What do the dates have in common?

Reading this shit on this thread has me convinced, more than ever, that the place to be is gone from the CPD as soon as my measly pension has grown just a few more percent.

Jesus H. Christ, how I will love leaving all this behind! I won't miss a bit of this shit, not one little bit! The Department I hired on years ago is gone, gone, gone. This doesn't even resemble the job I once had. A few of the faces are similar but older and with gray hair.

There is no pride, no camaraderie, no cohesiveness, nothing at all like it was years ago. No one seems to love coming to work anymore, no one, including yours truly. I once had a partner and we had so much fun every day I didn't like to take a day off for fear I might miss something. No kidding. We started laughing around 1515 hrs and it continued until around 2300 hrs. And we were in our cars heading home at 2305 hrs, not circling the station waiting for fucking 2315 so we can checkoff.

Jesus, and that fucking swipe system, can you believe that? It isn't connected to anything and there most people are, dutifully swiping in every day. I have yet to swipe in once! And guess what, no one has said shit to me about it! That's how bogus it is.

And I am supposed to go up to some shithead in a car and say "Hello, I am officer Tightpanty from the Chicago Police Department and I stopped you for being a piece of scum in my city." Give me a fucking break. That's the way some fucking pussy suburban police department does it, not me, not here.

I can remember doing a stop with a gun in some motherfucker's face and he dared not move because he knew you would blow him to hell if he did. No more. The CPD will have to start shooting a whole lot more of them before control is obtained once more, if that can ever happen again.

Makes me want to fucking vomit!

And morale? In the toilet, at an all time low, I have never in a quarter century seen it this bad, honestly. Fuck you Richard M. Daley, you fucking corrupt lying cock sucker!

It is time to go, it really is.

1. That was one of the most if not the most accurate and truthful posts I've read in a long time. The pussification of the Chicago Police Department is just about complete now and I for one want no part of it any longer. I've got a couple of years left. I'm going to spend that time making the lives of my guys as good as I can, protecting the TAXPAYERS and reminiscing about how much fun this job USED to be. But as they say, all good things come to an end. This aplies to the CPD as well. The good times are over. God Bless the new Officers and those to come after us. They don't even know what they don't know. They wonder why we stayed on so long. It was because the job was so much fun and we had hoped it would get better and revert to the way it used to be. Ain't happening so it's time to go. Stay safe.

I am retired and play the markets. Some free advice and do what you wish.
When I retired I was all in fixed and I have put a portion 6% in the market over the last few weeks.
We are in a secular ( long term) bear market- there will be cyclical bull markets inside this bear market. The last 3 crashes-29-38 and 87 the market was up from 37 to 45 percent the next autumn. I would reallocate my 457 after that rise.

Just for FYI, I am police officer and I saw the budget and the economy falling over 2 and a half years ago. I posted this information on quite a few different locations related to different stories and got reamed!!! My background is in finance. Anyway, I would suggest you look at what the city is offering us and truly understand what this means for you, because you ARE sleeping. I would also STOP putting money in Deferred Comp. Look into Annuities a 401 B,etc. for many reasons. Like now, you can't even touch your money, though 90% really need it. You truly lost a substantial amount that I would have preferred to spend myself!

Look at the fact that after 2013, the city is NOT obligated to provide health insurance for us, our families nor retirees after that year. If you do not qualify for a full retirement and you retire by that date, guess what, no insurance for you too. The Mayor and council that passed this, have health insurance and do not qualify under this clause, but the unanimously voted to support it!

Jfed is also removing history from the department with demotions and movement. His federal agents are still here and the last to get here. How can a federal background compensate for years of grassroots efforts and knowledge? Mike Masters makes $154,000.00!!! He lives in downtown Chicago and guess what, has never been the police. His first stint in living in a city is living here now. This is exciting to little him, and he is out there with an unmarked police car and a vest every night. Now what purpose does a Chief of Staff to the Supt. have at a homicide scene? You don't fucking know what you are looking at, nor what should be done. You can't question anyone, they can smell a rat and you are NOT the police. What will you possibly add to the scene or the case? He hangs on Rush Street, talking to the P.O.'s, like he is one of us. You have to earn this right, Jfed should not have been allowed to just give it to you.

ALL of the Feds make over $100,000.00. Last time I looked, I made $82,000.00 with 29 years of service. Guess what, he and the other Feds makes more than 92% of the entire police department, so while you are pecking away dogging each other, utilize that effort to address your real need.

Count the beans, screw the guys, and worry about yourself has been the montra of our Exempt staff for years. This Department is almost beyond repair. Who can step up to turn this thing around? How can it be turned around? The Mayor and his succession of self absorbed, inadequate Superintendents' have filled our Exempt ranks with incompent leadership. We need leadership and we need it now.

Thank you, thank you, thank you for bringing this information to the SCC blog. Half of the CPD was not on the job when this Charles "Howdy-Doody" Ramsey left Chicago. And one-quarter of the CPD was not on the job when Barbara "Babs" McDonald and Ron "Luberman" Huberman were working at CPD. They have no memory of the level of treachery possessed by each of these three people.

This is factual from the horse's mouth, in so many words. Babs was Ramsey's slam when they worked in CAPS on the CPD, and Ramsey is a still very, very close ex-lover, now occasional jocker when in-town, of Babs, and whoever is close to Babs is close to Ron Huberman. Ramsey nurtured the treachery in Babs, and Babs in turn nurtured the treachery in Huberman. They each fucked with decent people whenever possible.

Any member of the CPD that wants Ramsey to be the Superintendent never worked with him, for him or around him, and if he comes, no pun intended, so does Babs, and Ron will be the next to arrive, and we will have the unholy three running our job, plus, Babs and Ron will bring that female nutcase trouble-making secretary with them. Cannot remember her name for the moment, but the ensuing performance of this bunch will make Weis and O'Keefe look like Gandhi and the Dalai Lama. Ramsey is a power-driven ego-maniac, Babs is an avowed atheist, and Ron, well, we all know his back story. Add the nutcase secretary to the mix and you have the Gang of the Unholy Three + 1.

Please, please, please, do not wish for this bunch to form and come to the CPD because, if they do, you better strap in for the hurricane ride of your life. This is one mean bunch of people.

Can somebody explain to me why the lt.'s and sgt.'s in the vice control section (license, prost., and gambling) all have take home cars? What prostitution emergencies come up? And gambling? A joke (talk about a soft spot for guys who do construction work for bosses). And when does the license unit ever have an emergency - just wondering.

Why on earth does the Chicago Police Department need to pay sworn police officers who carry a badge and a gun to show soccer moms how to attach their baby seat in their car?

I tell you why...because those people pay taxes, are law abiding, and respect and appreciate the police. What would you rather do, police the ghetto, where the people don't pay taxes, are parasites on the state, hate the police, and are violent with each other and with us? Let the ghetto burn, and let's give the legit people the police service they deserve.


**************

The burbs have community service officers who do that , or wait CAR DEALERSHIPS who offer help. Only an idiot would take up police time for a car seat installation.

I would say this to Mette: If you're fortunate enough to return back to the Job, don't even think about a "strike force" or "mission team" or anything else. Get acclimated, stay focused and concentrate on doing your 20+ and out. You've had more than enough of a rollercoaster ride in your young lifetime already, and as much as a concerted effort went into getting you released from prison in Iowa, a chintzy fund raiser for 30 pending at the FOP hall for some street nonsense here
will pale by comparison.

There are no secret funds, you ignorant rat. This department is loaded with grants and 1505 funds that are specifically budgeted for cars. Granted there are probably some fools that misuse their cars, but most don't out of fear of getting launched. Its a new day.

Once again it must be said, knock off the cry baby snitching. We got bigger problems in this department right now - like too many overpaid, lazy, inexperienced, arrogant liars called exempts.

Promote sergeants who have been sergeants for 15 years to district law enforcement lieutenants. Logic being that if they have managed to survive the departmental crap from below and above for 15 years, then then they can survive and manage any-fuckin-thing. Look at Mike Mulligan, Dave snethen, and Prentiss Jackson = 90+ years of real police experience.
They are the real police!


WOW Prentis Jackson the real police????? Nice try Prentis

I was actually SAD the other day. Just really, really sad at the state of this whole dept. Nothing matters anymore...not that it ever did. And it's not fun anymore. It really is over. I came on in '86, and I can't believe in 22 short years that this dept. is completely ruined, along with demoralizing most if not all members. Sigh. Think I'll go teach pre-school and fingerpaint all day or something. Cookies, milk, a nap. Bye bye CPD....

Go ahead and vote for Obama you dope. Everything from national politics, Illinois state politics, Cook County politics and City of Chicago politics will be totally controlled by the Democratic Party without any checks or balances. Vote McCain if you have brain in your head.

Actually, there is not nearly as much in the 1505 funds has people would have you believe.
Under the P.Cline administration, those funds were raped by P. Cline and Ronnie Luberman.

Why do think that B. Kush left this Dept.?

1505 FUNDS?
Have to kidding me. Not much is left over after Phil raped the fund. Phones for everyone, Cameras on the streets and on and on. Went thru millions in his tenure. State Police were supposed to audit the use of 1505 funds. What a joke.
Not a fan of Kushner but he did try to prevent the misuse.

To all you haters. PJ, as he is affectionately called by his real friends has been a sergeant for 21 years and a Marine.
He attended the Northwestern University Traffic Institute's long course and was on the "fast track" for promotion.
PJ has passed every lieutenant's test but in this city of "who you blow" he has been denied promotion for being an independant.

clinton did attack Bin Laden's training camps and hijacking planes is not "unimaginable". The people who are looking out for USA were being ignored because the criminals had taken over - this spike in crime is the proof.
