Take CAPS Off Life Support

  • Mayor Daley is gutting Chicago's community policing budget and reducing staff 25 percent -- a cost-cutting move that, critics contend, would leave the 15-year-old crime-fighting program "almost dead."

    "Overtime has been taken off the table. Beat officers don't have to show up. Now, a third of the staff is gone. That is effectively the end of community policing in Chicago at the worst possible time," said the Rev. Marshall Hatch, chairman of the Leaders Network. Hatch noted that homicides and other violent crime are rising and the trend is almost certain to continue amid "desperation" tied to the economic downturn.

How much money did "reverend" Hatch's church, and other "churches" for that matter, receive from the CAPS program? It was never anything more than semi-legal bribery of printing contracts, bus trips and financial mismanagement. Busing seniors to movies? Gambling boats? Please, we need those officer on the street, not day-tripping.

This is terrible. I am going to miss all the free lunches and coffee with the old people. I will just have to find another do-nothing inside job. Thank God there are still plenty of them.

On the upside, I won't have to listen to citizen complaints about some officer named "Missy" writing parking tickets anymore.

See the Sun Times today talking about Huberman and the pension?
The paper says that the FOP is now on board. Where were they during the first hearing? What a joke?

Maybe the FOP could take notes from Mike Shields on how to fight Huberman. Look how much press has been written bout Vanecko and Huberman since that you tube video. Good for him. I hope he slam dunks that election.

Somebody's gotta step up that has a pair. Unfortunately, guys are too scared, too busy, or too in bed with the city.

It's implementation however did mark beginning of the end of the CPD as a well respected and efficent crime fighting major league Police Department, so it did accomplish something!

Ok listen to all those talking about bosses getting dumped. Here it goes:

No bossses with polictical clout will be demoted. Maybe a lateral move with less power but same pay. Just look at the those that ACTUALLY have polictical clout not just rummored to have it!

The ones with the political clout will stay all the other will be demoted back to Captin or LT. that are on the chopping blcok. Look for at least another 15 demotions or retirments. Also look for Lt's in units that will be going back to the street and a Sgt. will be in charge. The city will be able to not have to promote any new Lt. or Sgt's for a while becasue they will be putting est. 20 -25 Lt's back into partol. And with many units being combined there will be less of a need for Sgt's. The Sgt.'s roll will be expanded and more work placed on them. Look for another 50 Sgt.'s to hit the street when the units start getting combined. Gone will be the days when 8 p.o.'s need a Sgt. and Lt over them. These new Sgt's in these units will have to watch double the amount of officers.

Look for the Deupt. Chief spot gone in OCD. And every command position of Commander and higher gone in what units are in stratigic deployment. Those units will all be run by Lt.'s I belive except for the airports.

EARLY VOTING HAS STARTED!!

Remember this, if you don't vote it is as good as a vote for Obama in this state. Obama as president means a lot of payback to Richie, no more corruption investigations, no indictments and bad labor decisions.

Anita Alverez is a cop hater who wants to take police involved shootings directly to Grand Juries.

Durbin is one of the Democrats that got us into the financial mess we are in and thinks the police and military are Nazis.

For God's sake VOTE REPUBLICAN just to vote against Richie!

Also Vote NO on the Constitutional Convention. A $78 million party paid by taxpayers for lobbyists where our pension rights could be trashed.

By creating this false idea that b hussein is a run away winner is an attempt to gather the undecided votes from those who likely will vote for the perceived winner rather than a candidate based on merit. B hussein is NOT winning by 14 points he may not even be winning realistically! This country is too smart to vote the terrorist into office! And dont disregard the Bradley effect! Sorry liberal pukes but the Hero will take office Nov 4th and the REAL American hero does not have 3 Islamic names! And why isnt there blaring coverage of this voter registration fraud going on in battle ground states? Since Jan 1 over 200,000 voters in Ohio alone are proving to be fraudulent if this was the doing of a McCain supported group these liberal fucks would be reporting this 24 hours a day up to the election! And do you think if Joe the plumber was a B hussein supporter the media would be looking into him as hard as they are? FUCK NO! It is simple... these liberals are so upset that the country doesnt really feel the same way as them that they are willing to lie, cheat, steal or worse for this election! HAVE THEY NO SHAME???

SCC, I know this isnt the right spot, but it still needs to be said.

23 years ago today, Investigator Mike Ridges was gunned down. It turns out that a couple of your (CPD) tactical unit guys caught the flash over ISPERN and pinched the guys that killed Mike.

Thank you CPD 016 tactical teams!!!!
----
Officer Ridges, assigned to North Investigations, was reviewing a series of vandalism incidents that occurred around a Prospect Heights home. While working on the case near the home, Officer Ridges noticed a car with three men inside who closely matched the physical descriptions of the offenders in the case. Officer Ridges contacted the radio room with the basic description of the vehicle and its occupants prior to curbing the car. Once stopped, all three men exited the car and while Officer Ridges was checking their identities, one man drew a concealed gun and shot Officer Ridges once in the head and once in the hand, fatally wounding him.

The offenders were caught a short time later based on Officer Ridges' original radio transmission and a telephone call to police from a citizen who witnessed the incident. It was later revealed through a police investigation that the three men were en route to commit a contract murder at the Prospect Heights home where Officer Ridges was investigating the vandalism incidents. One of the offenders confessed to police he was prepared to kill everyone present in the intended victim's home.
----
A pretty chilling story. Some cold-blooded motherfuckers. The guy who made the above confession is/was trying to get paroled out of prison. We were there for a hearing about one month ago. We will keep going until there is no living offender or no CCSPD; whichever comes first.

This could happen to any of us, any day, any time.

The good citizens of Prospect Heights (who we used to provide contract police service for)named a park after Mike. It is a beautiful place on the east side of RT83 south of Palatine Road. It is a nice place to go to sit and reflect. You are all welcome to visit anytime.

Stay safe out there.

Thanks again to 016 tactical from all of your friends at the Cook County Sheriff's Police. I (we) never forgot.

2. Why did the Alderscum get a raise for over 6% if we have no money?

3. If they say GPS is for our safety why not get us the new Motorola radios that have GPS built into them so in case you are getting your ass kicked in an apartment they truly will know where you are?

4. Why doesn't the mayor's car have GPS?

5. Why do we need so many CAPS P.O.'s?

6. Why do tact LT.'s, CAPS LT's and the Area LT's take a car home?

7. Why does Jimmy Jackson have a Det. as a driver if we need more Det.'s in the area?

8. Why are they getting rid of civilian lockup keepers when we need more help on the street?

9. Why do they still take beefs when the shithead will not sign the affidavit?

10. WHY ARE SOME PEOPLE STILL WRITING TICKETS?

Finally, let's end another useless socialist program that never worked. I remember how the Department changed when they put those caps stars on the side of the squads, when partners were ripped apart to accomodate three man cars. This was one of the worst waste of time and money which contributed nothing to fighting crime in this city. Once again, RIP CAPS...

Hate to break the bad news but it is the civillian part of CAPS which is run by Vance Henry that are being eliminated. In fact, the
department will probably add another officer to each CAPS office. I hope they pick one of my friends so we can do lunch together everyday!

Instead of beating up CAPS, why don't you try filling in the CAPS office for one day.. you'll be dying to get back on the streets.

I'm not a cop but I've got a question.

If the CAPS job is so f'ing hard why are you still there? From what I read here there's plenty of street spots open if you want out. Why aren't you dying to get back on the streets? Wouldn't have anything to do with your testosterone level would it

If I were the H.M.F.I.C. my first order of business would be to REMOVE THE CAPS logo off ALL police vehicles front doors and replace it with the old Chicago Police Star that always stood and still stands for Pride, Integrity and Guts. Not this silly, fluffy bullshit that's displayed now.

Maybe getting into your police ride then will give you back your self respect.

I find it very questionable that Hubberman made his pension plea right before pension elections. In fact, the elections ballots are due 2 days after the next hearing. Let's see who votes YES with this Hubberman pension thing. Although I doubt if you can do anything since the ballots are due 2 days later. Any comments on this? I hope all the incumbants are voted OUT. We need new pension blood.

Ok listen to all those talking about bosses getting dumped. Here it goes:

No bossses with polictical clout will be demoted. Maybe a lateral move with less power but same pay. Just look at the those that ACTUALLY have polictical clout not just rummored to have it!

The ones with the political clout will stay all the other will be demoted back to Captin or LT. that are on the chopping blcok. Look for at least another 15 demotions or retirments. Also look for Lt's in units that will be going back to the street and a Sgt. will be in charge. The city will be able to not have to promote any new Lt. or Sgt's for a while becasue they will be putting est. 20 -25 Lt's back into partol. And with many units being combined there will be less of a need for Sgt's. The Sgt.'s roll will be expanded and more work placed on them. Look for another 50 Sgt.'s to hit the street when the units start getting combined. Gone will be the days when 8 p.o.'s need a Sgt. and Lt over them. These new Sgt's in these units will have to watch double the amount of officers.

Look for the Deupt. Chief spot gone in OCD. And every command position of Commander and higher gone in what units are in stratigic deployment. Those units will all be run by Lt.'s I belive except for the airports.

10/17/2008 01:22:00 PM

the airport commander will be gone, and O'hare will be run by a lt, the lt at midway will be back in patrol where she is needed. The sgts on the watch will take charge! sodini after his demotion (well deserved) is begging to be airport lt boss and he will get it due to excessive clout! welcome to "boy wonder"!

This is a fact, Ron Huberman pulled his petition at the pension board for credits earned while working at the CTA. This is good news. The bad news is that he can reapply at anytime, 1 year from now, or 20 years from now. So we need to keep an eye on this situation. He may be waiting to see who will be in the trustee’s spots to reapply. So make sure you mail your ballots this weekend for pension board trustees. They have to be in by Thursday.

The paper says that the FOP is now on board. Where were they during the first hearing? What a joke?

Maybe the FOP could take notes from Mike Shields on how to fight Huberman. Look how much press has been written bout Vanecko and Huberman since that you tube video. Good for him. I hope he slam dunks that election.

Somebody's gotta step up that has a pair. Unfortunately, guys are too scared, too busy, or too in bed with the city.

10/17/2008 09:56:00 AM


Shields did a great thing bringing the issue to light and he's got my vote, but I saw the FOX NEWS segment. Shields was interviewed on it but so was FOP V.P. Dougherty. FOP Dougherty came out against the Huberman grab on TV. The FOP backed candidates Robbins and Crapparrelli are two complete morons, but saying that FOP was not there is not right.

10/17/2008 10:26:00 AM

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

As a CAPS Lt (or should I say, a soon to be former CAPS Lt, thanks to the implementation of a CAPS Lt in each area, and the district CAPS Lt's being eliminated), I will try to answer your diatribe...

#1. I never had a take home car, and don't know another CAPS Lt who did. What district was this? If I was offered one, I would take it, if only to save on gas money.

#2. The erroneous and frivolous complaints are the Clearpath system by which citizens can enter in their complaints on the internet for mandatory investigation by watch/tact/gang personnel, with an answer due in 10-30 days. I strongly opposed it because it is a system ripe for abuse by the public. The popular theory has it that some day, this system will take the place of the beat meeting....people just voice their complaint electronically, and we still have to answer it.

#3. Domestic Violence officers are probably the busiest people in CAPS. The good ones really handle the elderly abuse cases, medical fraud cases, financial fraud, etc... and there is a lot more of that going on than people realize. Yes a 25 yr old doesn't belong in that capacity because they don't posess the life experience needed to deal with some of the situations encountered.

#4. Citation clerks come under the Commander's office, not CAPS.

#5. They should be allowed time to go get lunch and bring it back, but not to lounge about. Shame on the supervisor of that person for not keeping track of his/her people better.

#6. A large number of CAPS positions should be eliminated immediately, mostly because we are doing jobs that we have no business doing (ie raising other people's children by having youth group meetings, field trips, etc). The needed ones, like senior officers, could easily be folded into the Commander's office.

In short, CAPS is/was a big public works project allegedly designed to promote interaction between the community and the police to solve numerous problems. It quickly became a one-sided money grab by community groups and egotistical minded individuals in the community, all wanting to control/influence policy of the police department. Unfortunately, it worked for them, just look around you. I believe the term is "De-Policing". The community wants us out of their business, well it looks like they have what they wanted, and are now wondering how they are going to replace their financial losses with the programs dying off from CAPS. Also, their possible loss of influence over the department is worrying them.

Sorry for the length, but I felt it necessary to properly explain the real deal with CAPS.

Just for clarification, Colin Powell was/is a RINO. He was never a "conservative". And typical of the Obama sort, the white folk hand him life on a silver platter, great jobs, promotions, open doors, and what thanks does "whitey" get; a swift kick in the shins by the guy they carried to the top.
You see people, giving free shit to "them" does not buy their happiness, it foments their hatred.
To all you dopes who are going to vote for this racist, marxist, B
Obama, read an article from National Review, "Who is Barak Obama". The author read both of his biographies ( think about the ego involved there for a minute, 47 years old and think so much of yourself that you write two tributes to YOURSELF!)
In over 600 pages of text not once does Mr Obama say he likes America or white people. Lets not forget, his black father abandoned him, as did his athiest marxist mother, and the Christian WHITE grandmother sacrificed to raise him...and he don't like white folks!

The officers who have been hiding in CAPS will never be on the street. They will just find another warm inside nest to sleep in. Cowards.

If CAPS should die, there are two responsibility's that need to be saved: the senior services officer and the domestic violence officer. Much of what they do comes under the criminal code and / or court decisions that we as public officials are obligated by law to carry out.

That is all...

..." It quickly became a one-sided money grab by community groups and egotistical minded individuals in the community, all wanting to control/influence policy of the police department. Unfortunately, it worked for them, just look around you. I believe the term is "De-Policing". The community wants us out of their business, well it looks like they have what they wanted, and are now wondering how they are going to replace their financial losses with the programs dying off from CAPS. Also, their possible loss of influence over the department is worrying them."...

It was doomed from the start! Daley also used the federal money given for CAPS in ways not benefitting the Police Dept/CAPS. (The hiring of “More Officers” under the guise of CAPS back in the ‘90s, we were budgeted at 13,500 then and were budgeted at 13,500 now)

Can we hurry up and get that dumb ass sticker off the side of my squad car now?

off topic. anyone hear about the new and improved "elite" 868 gang team in 008? they bring in a bunch of 2 and three year wonders who think they are gonna change the world one arrest at a time. its funny to hear them on the radio taking in all those arrests and making all those street stops...hey guys, why dont you relax a little bit, all that "work" and arrests arent gonna pay off for anything in this life...last i checked, there was a work slowdown, why dont you guys get on board and get your know it all (or should i say know nothing)Sgt on board too, you guys are my hero's.

Instead of beating up CAPS, why don't you try filling in the CAPS office for one day.. you'll be dying to get back on the streets. The city just spend a ton of money on CLEARPATH, and as long as KING Richie is in office, CAPS will not dissappear. Like it or not, this department needs CAPS.

OMG!! I laughed so hard beer came out of my nose...!

Hey, CAPS warrior: You better get your next pitcher of kool aid "to go"

Just for clarification, Colin Powell was/is a RINO. He was never a "conservative". And typical of the Obama sort, the white folk hand him life on a silver platter, great jobs, promotions, open doors, and what thanks does "whitey" get; a swift kick in the shins by the guy they carried to the top.
You see people, giving free shit to "them" does not buy their happiness, it foments their hatred.
To all you dopes who are going to vote for this racist, marxist, B
Obama, read an article from National Review, "Who is Barak Obama". The author read both of his biographies ( think about the ego involved there for a minute, 47 years old and think so much of yourself that you write two tributes to YOURSELF!)
In over 600 pages of text not once does Mr Obama say he likes America or white people. Lets not forget, his black father abandoned him, as did his athiest marxist mother, and the Christian WHITE grandmother sacrificed to raise him...and he don't like white folks!
Ingratitude is the worst sin!

Powell is just voting along racial lines, we all knew in August he was backing Obama, no surprise.

Thankfully SCC is not responsible for any of the comments that do make it onto his fine blog site, even though he/she/it does filter out the most outrageously racist, offensive, and/or anti-republican comments and gives a good housekeeping seal of approval on the less racist, offensive, and/or anti-republican comments under the guise of poster anonymity...gots to luv them contradictions...it's all good and entertaining, wouldn't want any of it to change, so keep up the fine work SCC!

"Durbin is one of the Democrats that got us into the financial mess we are in and thinks the police and military are Nazis."

I'm no big fan of Durbin, but he was instrumental in getting the Rickover Military Academy installed at Senn High School, across the street from me. For that I am grateful. And he, of course, was called names by all the hippies in the neighborhood who can't understand that the kids going to Rickover will be less likely to ever catch a bullet than the kids going to Senn.

Gee, kinda reminds me of all of the thousands upon thousands of City of Chicago (patronage) employees who over the years have always voted Democratic but who have never, ever been idealogically aligned with that party and who could not in your wildest imagination be called "liberal."

Why don't you read his autobiographies before you make assumptions based on someone else's review? I've always been lukewarm towards Obama, but to comment on the contents of a book without reading it is akin to reviewing a movie or play without seeing it and lacks the same validity.
