The Silent Changes

Seems someone (the Commander) got dumped out of Special Functions Group on Friday and became an Inspector rather than return to his career service rank of Lieutenant. And that might not be the only one.

Nice to see that the administration still lacks the wherewithal to admit it made an actual mistake promoting someone beyond their means and still provide them a gold star opportunity. So much for J-Fed actually being in control of anything - seems the rank and file have a better feel for the pulse of anything this Department does than the press, mayor or brass.

I work in SFS and John was a good boss. He stood up for his guys and knew what he was doing. It seems he got dumped for not forcing his guys to sign off on a waiver that would allow them to be detail to detached services and NOT get the Sgts pay that went along with it. Say what you will about the dept, and even John, but the brief time I worked for him, he was a very good boss. I'm glad they didnt knock him down to Lt and are letting him pension out at inspectors pay.

Dear SCC,
I thought an Inspector was a Lt. Does an Inspector make more than Lts. do?
Also, who were the Commanders that were dumped and do you know where they went?

Commandant KLINK here from STALAG 017.

I am sure you all are aware that we are in a financial crisis and we must sacrifice for the supreme dicktator
" richard the lessor ".

According to the new directive by GENERAL WEASEL, we will have more shitty cars, more spars for minor infractions and best of all a real bad contract.

If anyone of you complains! Off to the cooler !!!

An Inspector is a Lieutenant by civil service rank. It's a cushier job than being a Field Lieutenant or a fill in watch commander, but the rank is Lieutenant.
No extra pay, but a company car.

Most of us have realized for some time now that we really have two departments.

We have the corporate department made up of most of the officers and supervisors at HQ's (and I'm not talking about those officers who are close to retirement or have been injured IOD,you deserve a spot). The others I have no use for. Or the clout babies in CAPS and the front offices in the districts and the medical abusers that shamelessly abuse the system and the department lets them get away with it. They should fire em and let em fight to get their jobs back. Even if the department loses, you don't make it easy for them. God how the department wastes manpower

Then you have the street officers who go to their jobs,write paper and are proactive. Thank God we still have some on this job that still take their vocation seriously and are committed to helping people.

The sky didn't fall the day after that election either. And no, I'm not a democratic, but I will be voting for Obama in November, because he's simply the better man.

It comes down to this folks or peoples.

Who's morale is more important?

The exempt members who might get tossed into the wind. Or the grunts who do the work?

God forbid we do anything right for the working man or woman on the streets to help them protect law abiding citizens. No...we can't give them the resources, training and equipment they desperately need. No...we cannot give them effective police administrators and competent management that must of us expect and DEMAND! No...we can't even give them a contract.

Fuck no! We need to be sensitive and appease one demoted boss. Poor guy why his ego must be bruised. How embarrassing it must be for him to descend into the working ranks. NOT!

SCC,

Normally, you are right on with your posts. However, in this case, you couldn't be more off base.

John Franklin was called downtown last week and was personally informed by the Superintendent that his and several other commander positions were being removed from the 2009 budget. As a result, he was further informed that, effective 01 JAN 09, he was being reverted back to the rank of Lieutenant. He was demoted simply because of budget considerations. Rather than wait, he chose to accelerate the process and go back to the rank of Lieutenant immediately.

FYI, an Inspector is a Lieutenant. There is no extra pay involved. He goes right back to the D4 pay grade. Moveover, because he was Exempt for only two years, he will not receive his commander's pension. He needed to hit three years in order to lock it in.

I have personally worked for John Franklin, and can say without a doubt that he is a coppers boss through-and-through. John has shown himself to be a knowledgable boss who would go out of his way to help an officer in need if it was within his power to do so.

There are many commanders who do not deserve their positions, but John was not one of them. He is a good man who was thrown under the bus to save the city some money. Thats the fact of the matter, plain and simple.

- A Lieutenant Who Knows

You can move the position of 100 pennies that are on a table. But no matter what position they are in, it still adds up to a dollar. Point being, nothing is ever going to change when it comes to clout, connections, friends or power.

This one of the major reasons that the Chicago Police Department is such a boondoggle.

When you continually place people in the position of authority based on WHO they know and Not WHAT they know, you end up with a organization that will never achieve or accomplish anything of value.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

The "gold star" of an inspector isn't a promotional "gold star". They are still Lieutenant's and they are paid Lt.'s pay, not commander's pay.

The purpose of the "gold star" is to make them "exempt" from being overidden by any exempt member when it comes to their inspectional job. It means when they walk into your district and demand to inspect something, the commander doesn't have the authority to prevent them doing so by pulling rank.

That's all it ever meant, it's not a pay grade difference and they don't have command authority over a Lt. in the field, other than for the purpose of inspecting something.

Carry on.

But then reality will set in and you will think to yourself what an embarrassment to law enforcement in general and female officers in particular the show is. If I was one of the so called coppers on that show or an Officer in that Department,I would hide my head in shame. But in any event it's also a look at how low law enforcement has sunk and what's coming to Chicago. The suburban way of policing. Coming to a District near you soon.

Off Topic:

Did anyone see Colin Powell make his previously unannounced endorsement for Barack Obama on Meet The Press Sunday morning? I did and it got me thinking a bit.

Understand that I am a long time (20 years plus) PO and dislike most anything connected to Shortshanks.

That said, Colin Powell comes with some powerful credentials: career military man, National Security Advisor, 4 star general in the US Army, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff, US Security of State. Not exactly a "liberal" by any stretch one whose opinion is worthy of notice.

Read Powell's endorsement of Obama, it is online in enough places, the Sun-Times for one.

http://www.suntimes.com/news/elections/1231131,CST-EDT-powell20.article

Read his words, consider them and then just think for a minute that, most likely, Obama will win the next election for President of the US.

Now ponder this eventuality for a while and consider, just for a moment, maybe this is not such a bad thing. Maybe.

One thing is for certain, if Obama were to try to sneak getting a blow job in the White House I'll bet he has no balls left in the morning once the wife finds out.

The woman, a British citizen, worked with handicapped Afghans and was killed in the western part of Kabul as she was walking to work around 8 a.m., the police said. Najib Samsoor, a district police chief, originally said the woman was from South Africa, but the British government later said she was British.

The gunmen, who were on a motorbike, shot the woman in the body and leg with a pistol, said Zemeri Bashary, an Interior Ministry spokesman. Officials did not release her name.

Zabiullah Mujahid, a Taliban spokesman, claimed responsibility for the slaying, saying the woman was killed because she was spreading Christianity. The group's leaders had "issued a decree to kill this woman," the spokesman said. "This morning our people killed her in Kabul."

Colin Powell is an opportunist. He thinks that Obama is a shoe-in and so he jumps on the bandwagon to get a job. It is clear that he is also attempting to redeem his standing in the black community in which many have labeled him an Uncle Tom. His endorsement is all about Colin.
Anyone who thinks Obama is the better man is sadly misinformed. Yes, he is a better public speaker and looks good in a suit. Has no one witnessed how hes morphed his extreme left stances to more middle of the road in order to gain votes? When Republicans spend as much as Obama it is called "buying an election". This man has been less thoroughly investigated by the media than Joe the plumber.
Please read the Principles of Communism by Marx (particularly "What will be the course of this revolution").
(i)Limitation of private property through progressive taxation....
(ii)Gradual expropriation of land owners, industrialists etc. (the wealthy)through competition by state industry and bonds. AKA taxing big business.
(iv) Organization of labor.....
(vi) Centralization of money and credit in the hands of the state...
(viii)Education of all children at the expense of the nation in national schools.

To 10/20/2008 03:29:00 PM,

You have absolutely no clue about what you're talking about. Colin Powell admitted publicly that his advancement in the military was largely due to affirmative action, not necessarily acheivment. His failure to heed Gen. Norman Schwartzkopf's plea to get Sadaam Hussien in 1991 after the invasion of Kuwait proves what a poor strategic thinker he is.

His lack of vision is a chief reason why we had to go back and get him now. Powell was a failure in his service to his President. Regrettably, the Armed Forces were the original proving ground for the half-baked sociological theories of east coast acamedicians long before the implementation of these same theories fucked-up the Chicago Police Department. We have mediocre merit bosses all over this dept. just as him!

Colin Powell is also pro-abortion, just like the southside Marxist philospher Obama. Funny, we have all seen more than a few blacks under ten years old murdered by gangbangers this year. It's imponderable to beleive Obama and Powell beleive a women-I refuse to defer to one who has an abortion as a mother-should be allowed to rip a child from the only sure place of safety-the mothers womb! Through his endorsement of Obama he displayed the same racial voting tendency of some mutt living at Adams and Keeler. Save yourself-Vote McCain!!!

John getting dumped because of Budget cuts is bullshit. John is a helluva of policeman with a big heart. Bigger than he lets on to most people. John got dumped because of Masters and Ray Hamilton. Pure and simple. Hamilton has been backstabbing Franklin from the minute go. Ray Hamilton is a piece of shit and Jody and Masters are bigger d*** h***s for listening to this loser/gun nut. Here's a lifeline for you Jody and Mike, Mike's job is not to advise you, it's to put out fires with the politicians. Master's is a 29 year-old Harvard Grad who always wanted to be the police and now he's being the given the opportunity to run the department along with Hamilton. BTW Check out the arrest of Kylie Howard. This is an arrest that Masters and Hamilton made along with Blondie from the the policy group and Masters was carrying a gun, which he is not authorized to carry. John I am truly sorry about what happenned to you. The tides will turn soon. Hang in there!!!

ATTENTION ATTENTION If you are not a WHITE MALE you may want to think before you vote for pension trustee I was present at a 35th/Michigan forum with JFed earlier this year... MIKE SHIELDS, who is currently running for pension board trustee, asked J Fed a question that was nothing short of racist, inappropriate, and insensitive.. It was so inappropriate that it made the Supt himself uncomfortable and deflect the question to a member of his command staff who dressed MIKE SHIELDS down immediately. MIKE SHIELDS is a racist make no bones about it!!! MIKE SHIELDS further aired his gripes against women on this job... MIKE SHIELDS is a sexist! This is NOT someone you want investing your retirement!! This is not a man you want controlling your pension! I am not involved much in departmental politics... but I do know that MIKE SHIELDS IS NOT WHO YOU WANT HOLDING ONTO YOUR FUTURE!!!

Looks like the airport commander and the girl he put in at midway will be part of the train wreck that is rolling rapidly! she has single handedly ruined a great unit! That is why patrol is the solution and the cure for the girl! we don't make $101,000 plus like she makes so she decides to do her thing! She is going against a police officer who is the new unit rep with full suppoort of the blue shirts and many sgts, "maam it is time for you to fly"! The city is buried in lawsuits g=from dumping a great sgt who was hispanic to now going after an african american officer the racism that you have stirred up has serious repercussions! You ahve taken from the blue shirts any incentive, even the commader told you to"Take care of the workers," but in your "wreck and destroy" mission yes maam "Whoops you did it again"! From the crying sgt in 008 to the "bad lt" here! "Hello 009 is calling"! Lt. Moran at least was a gentleman, and Tim and Roy had their quirks as did Louie but you dumped some people that knew how to take care of the troops!

Why is it everytime (JJ) gets jammed up this shit starts? Come on! He is the union rep, overwelmingly voted in, is this why he is being screwed with? No I don't work at the airport, but I do work special as much as I can! Stop the crying, understand that many have major whack, to get there, and the new boss cannot do anything but threaten! J is tied unfairly to the desk, on days cannot ever leave the office even for lunch or a personal, after watching Prison shows on cnbc it seems the unit C.O. is acting as a warden, or a commandant from the former SS army of hitler, imprisoning a man without cause! What is the union, if we have one doing in this case? The best case situation is the Lt packs up and leaves! When special was avaiable years ago I also worked it, there was another LT mentioned in the previous reply named Moran there nothing but a gentleman, who had respect. The officers were also happy now they look like every copper working a district totally demoralized! Maybe just possibly the Supt. needs to make a management change, maybe a big move here also!

Most public museums, like the Field, Museum of Science and Industry and so on will ask you if you are a member. If you smile and reply, "City employee." They are likely to give you a discount. I have done this for many years, but then I get the senior discount these days without even asking.

The Field Museum is free for the person with the star, but only the admission. Special exhibits, etc., are not free.
Also free: Science and Industry, Planetarium, Shedd, The Art Institute (star holder plus one), Chicago History Museum, and any other museum that is part of the Chicago Park District.
Other poster is correct, If you go to the library you can get up to four passes for various museums, but passes are limited. First come basis.

SCC,

Normally, you are right on with your posts. However, in this case, you couldn't be more off base.

John Franklin was called downtown last week and was personally informed by the Superintendent that his and several other commander positions were being removed from the 2009 budget. As a result, he was further informed that, effective 01 JAN 09, he was being reverted back to the rank of Lieutenant. He was demoted simply because of budget considerations. Rather than wait, he chose to accelerate the process and go back to the rank of Lieutenant immediately.

FYI, an Inspector is a Lieutenant. There is no extra pay involved. He goes right back to the D4 pay grade. Moveover, because he was Exempt for only two years, he will not receive his commander's pension. He needed to hit three years in order to lock it in.

I have personally worked for John Franklin, and can say without a doubt that he is a coppers boss through-and-through. John has shown himself to be a knowledgable boss who would go out of his way to help an officer in need if it was within his power to do so.

There are many commanders who do not deserve their positions, but John was not one of them. He is a good man who was thrown under the bus to save the city some money. Thats the fact of the matter, plain and simple.

- A Lieutenant Who Knows

10/20/2008 11:31:00 AM

Sorry Lt. who "knows". Check the 09 budget. His spot is still there.

I worked with John when he was a patrolman in the 018th district. Prior to going to 018, both of us worked southside districts. He's a good guy and knew what he was doing.

I ran into him when he was the commander of the 003rd district; he was still a guy I could have a conversation with concerning department issues.

Too bad the department knocked him down, John was a standup guy.

To the originator of this post, you are really misinformed. To the contrary the black community does not consider him to be a "Uncle Tom." Most blacks think very highly of him including Democrats such as myself, in fact if McCain would have had any sense he would have chose him as his VP, if he REALLY wanted to win.

The "gold star" of an inspector isn't a promotional "gold star". They are still Lieutenant's and they are paid Lt.'s pay, not commander's pay.

The purpose of the "gold star" is to make them "exempt" from being overidden by any exempt member when it comes to their inspectional job. It means when they walk into your district and demand to inspect something, the commander doesn't have the authority to prevent them doing so by pulling rank.

That's all it ever meant, it's not a pay grade difference and they don't have command authority over a Lt. in the field, other than for the purpose of inspecting something.

Carry on.

10/20/2008 03:24:00 PM

I'm not too sure about that. About 20 years ago I had a W/C with big stones who threw an inspector out of the district station. This inspector walked in and started on the W/C about the appearance of his troops and the W/C told him to get the F*&$ out of the station. The inspector ledt with his tail between his legs!

To the asshat who stated that if mcain had picked powell to run as vice prez, you would have voted for mcain.

It is obvious that you are black and a democrat. Who cares. Once again, the weak minded feebleness is exposed on this almighty blog.

Powell's wife has a medical condition you moron. He wouldn't have run with mcain as his VP anyway. Powell is a closet democrat. Simple as that. And he came out of the closet to endorse the black man, Hussein Obama, the christian who is really a closet muslim.

And as far as Powell in the military? Affrimative action got him there, a job that he could NOT PERFORM WITH SPECIFICITY, because it was way beyond HIS PAY GRADE. Probably the worst head of the joint chiefs that has ever had the job, and once again because of affirmative action, self admitted.

So listen you asspipe. Vote for Hussein, it is to be expected. As I will vote Mcain, as expected. But my actual feelings: If Hussein was the better man, I would vote for him because he is the better man, not because he is black.

If Hussein does win, the only postive is that affirmative action will be at an end.

Then you don't know your ass from a hole in the ground pal, because that's exactly what that gold star means. Big bird is a FIELD inspector, responsible for snooping on PO's. He doesn't NEED approval or permission to do his job, whether some boss throws him out of the station or not. When he's there, he's there to inform whomever that he found an "infraction", not to demand access to department documents or property for inspection.

When an inspector comes to your district, or even a Sgt. inspector comes to your district for an audit, try telling me again that your DC has the authority to tell him to leave.

To the originator of this post, you are really misinformed. To the contrary the black community does not consider him to be a "Uncle Tom." Most blacks think very highly of him including Democrats such as myself, in fact if McCain would have had any sense he would have chose him as his VP, if he REALLY wanted to win. A lot of Democrats would have voted Republican if Powell was on the ticket.

10/20/2008 09:36:00 PM


Agreed! My vote still goes to McCain, but I sure wish he asked Colin or Condi ( not sure either would have accepted ) instead of Palin. I like Palin, but she's not as sharp as either Colin or Condi. She's the ultimate MILF, but Colin would have been a much better choice for the clear win.

I've accepted that Obama will probably win...but he'll be a one term president. Watch the shit hit fan, even Biden admitted as much yesterday, not that the media will give any of it more than a blurb!

OBAMA gets one endorsement from a retired general (Powell) and former secretary of State. The media is all over it.

No mention of the other 5 living Secretary's of State endorsing McCain and over 200 Generals and Admirals endorsing him!Including Gen. Arnold Schwartzkopf who wanted to finish the first gulf war but was overruled by Powell.

Yet all the Libtards thinks the media is unbiased.

To the goof who thinks Obama is going to win and is so great. Get over yourself and get off the Senator's dick.

He may win, only because he has been campaigning longer then anyone else. He has spent 19 months to McCains 3-4 months. Plus he has outspent the Republicans by a large margin. Obama has raised a Billion dollars. More than all the previous Dems running for President combined.

Nothing like BUYING the office of President,huh?.. And using other people's money to do it, kind of like when he bought his house and extra wide lot in Kenwood/hyde park with Rezko's money.

Funny thing is with his non-exsistent, and unremarkable record in the Senate, he probably wouldn't have been reelected so he opted to run for President on the Socialist party ticket!

I too am dumbfounded about Gen. Powell's endorsement of Obama.

I have always had the utmost respect for the General and I still do.

He could be wrong about Obama, just as I was wrong about President Bush, a President whom I voted for twice and whom I think really let us down and who has to take a great deal of credit for destroying the Republican Party by virtue of not kicking ass and getting us and the party back on the Contract With America track.

President Bush will be leaving the Oval Office with a ginormous fecal mess to clean up.

I have to believe the General is aware of the people who have made Obama who and what he is. G-d knows, clear thinking, Chicagoans know.

I can only surmise the General is wrong about Obama.

I could certainly be wrong again and should Obama get elected, I hope I am wrong.

I won’t be voting for him though. I just can’t get past the flies that fly around him and where he’s come from and who he’s hung out with in addition to being a long time observer of the Chicago Way.

More significantly, McCain is just more experienced even though the excitement of getting elected could kill him. I willing to take that risk. He's paid his dues.

A native Chicagoan and not a Cop.

P.S. Thanks to all the CPD for the thankless job you do.

Then you don't know your ass from a hole in the ground pal, because that's exactly what that gold star means. Big bird is a FIELD inspector, responsible for snooping on PO's. He doesn't NEED approval or permission to do his job, whether some boss throws him out of the station or not. When he's there, he's there to inform whomever that he found an "infraction", not to demand access to department documents or property for inspection.

When an inspector comes to your district, or even a Sgt. inspector comes to your district for an audit, try telling me again that your DC has the authority to tell him to leave.

I guess I am just too intelligent and honest for the simple minded and I actuallly know what I am talking about, and am not making up stories or calling Obama names because I have nothing intelligent to say.

The most important thing to all of us is the state of our economy. All of our Deferred Comp accounts are 38% less than they were last year. Inflation has rose 9% and we are actually making 6$ less than we were last year as compared to the cost of living in Chicago, etc.

I am Asian, so I have no interest in the black and white war on SCC, but I am interested in what is said that may sway votes either way. We do not need a multi-millionaire as President, we had one, and it left your almost poor as even poorer. Let me speak language you may understand.

To the originator of this post, you are really misinformed. To the contrary the black community does not consider him to be a "Uncle Tom." Most blacks think very highly of him including Democrats such as myself, in fact if McCain would have had any sense he would have chose him as his VP, if he REALLY wanted to win. A lot of Democrats would have voted Republican if Powell was on the ticket.

10/20/2008 09:36:00 PM

So...in other words...

Either you believe the Democrats are wrong and Republicans right, but you vote Democrat because you are a "Democrat(s) such as myself", or you support and vote for people because of their race.

Welcome to the fall of the United States, the birth of the Socialist United States of Diversity is upon us. Well, diverse as long as you are for redistribution of wealth based upon skin color.

When an inspector comes to your district, or even a Sgt. inspector comes to your district for an audit, try telling me again that your DC has the authority to tell him to leave.

Dipshit, you don't know a damn thing about the inspectional division, yer just an idiot who things he does.


I personally watched Cdr. Danny Briggs and Lt. Alfonzo Scott toss an inspector out of the 005th Dist parking lot as he was attempting to get P/O's for expired plated/city stickers during one of the Bulls Riots!

Part of the problem on this job is Commanders walking on egg shells, too damn worried about making that next promotion, instead of being the Police, and backing up their Police Officers!

BTW: Crawl back under the desk at 35th st, and get back to sucking dick, the rest of the floor is waiting!

To 3:24pm BS!! I've seen Inspectors thrown out of stations after being dressed down by D/Cs, Captains and Lieutenants.
****************8
If this ever happened, we would ALL know when and who, because of the SHITSTORM it would cause for the person allegedly "throwing out" the Inspector.

Now, MAYBE someone's boss told them they kicked the Insp. out, but I guarantee it didn't happen that way.

Inspectors only make observations. The observations are noted on a log, certain of those observations are written on an infraction report, a few actually by the inspector, the rest, at AICD via the COMMANDER of the division's decision. It is then sent out to the district/ unit where the employee observed is assigned to. After that, it is up to the unit supervisor as to what will happen because of the observation.
There's nothing more to it..
What would prompt anyone to try to "kick out" an inspector? It would only give the inspector a triple mover for the day LOL.

Except that he knew how to work the system and actually deliver services to the entire city instead of just certain wards...ask anyone in Mt. Greenwood -annexed to the city in 1928 or 1929 -the community was promised 'new streets and curbs' -money was finally appropriated during the Bilandic-Jane Byrne era but Jane yanked the funding due to her feud with Sheehan and Joyce....Harold Washington got in and suddenly new streets! and a new library!

I love Janey but she hurt the taxpayers to hurt the swside irish mafia.

Well, this is the first time in a year that I have seen any posts positively represent Obama, or state facts of our economy. I have posted many times, only to find that my comments were not reflected in the "allowed posts." I guess I am just too intelligent and honest for the simple minded and I actuallly know what I am talking about, and am not making up stories or calling Obama names because I have nothing intelligent to say.

The most important thing to all of us is the state of our economy. All of our Deferred Comp accounts are 38% less than they were last year. Inflation has rose 9% and we are actually making 6$ less than we were last year as compared to the cost of living in Chicago, etc.

I am Asian, so I have no interest in the black and white war on SCC, but I am interested in what is said that may sway votes either way. We do not need a multi-millionaire as President, we had one, and it left your almost poor as even poorer. Let me speak language you may understand. We really need someone who recognizes our issues and are actually working towards the rebound of the economy that is working for YOU post readers, the one check from being homeless group!

Even when they do get on the street, no working cars, everything is broken down, nothing works!! Some of the guys spend hours trying to get cars to work, but Richies friend have all the contracts, so we pay an get nothing.

Hey 3:21 PM....Just because you claim to have worked on the west side "your entire time", sure as hell doesn't mean you're the "police". If you were then, or are now, then those of us that live in 016 would get some damn service every now and then. And to whoever posted the sad, sad story about 016 having no cars, not enough p/os etc....WELCOME TO THE CPD. All 24 other districts have the same problems, and yet most of them manage to, at the very least, RESPOND to calls. And yes I know there are some good cops in 016. They just seem to be few and far between. And before you start your pathetic "listen here ppo" argument...I don't work in 016, have enough time to get there if I choose, and never would because I still like to be in a place where a majority of the people I work with AREN'T dogs. So get over yourself already superhero. Why don't you prove all the 016th District haters wrong by doing your job.

ATTENTION ATTENTION If you are not a WHITE MALE you may want to think before you vote for pension trustee I was present at a 35th/Michigan forum with JFed earlier this year... MIKE SHIELDS, who is currently running for pension board trustee, asked J Fed a question that was nothing short of racist, inappropriate, and insensitive.. It was so inappropriate that it made the Supt himself uncomfortable and deflect the question to a member of his command staff who dressed MIKE SHIELDS down immediately. MIKE SHIELDS is a racist make no bones about it!!! MIKE SHIELDS further aired his gripes against women on this job... MIKE SHIELDS is a sexist! This is NOT someone you want investing your retirement!! This is not a man you want controlling your pension! I am not involved much in departmental politics... but I do know that MIKE SHIELDS IS NOT WHO YOU WANT HOLDING ONTO YOUR FUTURE!!!

Hello liar. Dude, you totally forgot that Mike is a child molester, drug dealer, KGB operative, murderer and well known lothario. You should know that I was at the "town hall" meeting with Mike. You are a liar. He asked a question that neither J-Fraud nor Aunt Bea could answer. He was never "dressed downed." Are you out of your fucking mind, liar? Prove you were really there and repeat Mike's question. It was not racist, sexist or otherwise inappropriate.

You can vote for whichever FOP sanctioned loser you want as pension rep, but stop with the lies. Asshole.

Just want to make a comment on the people who are bad mouthing the 016th dist police officers...First of all..the 016th dist is some
30+ square miles, the biggest of the police districts in the city...and for all of you who think it's so easy to maneuver around here try getting from Belmont to Touhy in rush hour traffic...I'll bet my paycheck that you can't do it in under 10 mins with lights and siren. Belmont is 3200 N and Touhy is 7200 N...that's 40 blocks!! Next...we have our share of "dogs" as does EVERY police district in this city...the officers in 016 do a great job..let me tell you..I have been up here for almost 2 years now and if I had a dollar for every "city worker" I drove home, I could put a down payment on a car..We deal with everything from drunken coppers,firemen,retired coppers/firemen, judges,lawyers,doctors,senators,ward commiteemen,streets/san workers,aldermen,etc....NOT like in the "Ghetto" where Joe don't give a fuck and either do you because he doesn't know anyone and has been a habitual criminal all of his life. The citizens in 016 are real working people and some have very influential positions..that being said..it makes the officers job a little more challenging.Nothing is easy to handle in 016...a simple traffic accident is a bowl of shit...I will admit that I would like to see some of the kids on the tact and gang teams be more aggressive...they work in a good place and have the ability to protect their own neighborhoods..and who else would one rather serve than their own families / neighborhood?? All in all...the officers do a good job...could be more aggressive but stop bad mouthing them because you have no idea what they put up with and the sheer size of this place and the traffic makes it impossible to respond to crimes immediately like you can in "ghetto" districts ...We are also short on manpower...the midnight watch especially from what I have seen is running almost EVERY night with minimum 6 cars as 99 units...sometimes I have seen it with as many as 8 99 units..and NO WAGON...Ho can we effectively police the homeland with so few coppers?? I have personally seen where the watch was manned with as few as 15 officers working...That's NUTS.

Amazing story in 016. Suburbs have more officers are duty with a smaller area to cover. Bu then 01 has no political clout. Two useless aldercreatures and apathetic residents. Ghetto districts complaing about a lack of police coverage but not residents and leaders in 41st and 45th wards. And ghetto coppers are the worse. They forget how is life outside their district.
