Obama Detail Changes

Ah, that's what happened:
  • Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis said Saturday he's developing a program to have his officers provide security for President-elect Barack Obama only on their days off.

    "There will be no officers taken out of districts; there will be no officers taken out of investigative services," Weis said, speaking at a South Side community policing event Saturday.

    "All of the people who will be working with the U.S. Secret Service to protect President-elect Barack Obama will be doing it on their days off."

And why couldn't this have been covered this way in the beginning?

"Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis said Saturday he's developing a program to have his officers provide security for President-elect Barack Obama only on their days off."

This wasn't Weis' only TV appearance -- tonight, Saturday, Nov. 15, 2008, at about 10:07 PM, Chicago's Channel 9 News ran the standard piece on Friday night's standard shootings.

Featured was the standard speech by Police Supt. Jody Weis, about the standard "new initiatives to reduce violence," including the standard "after-school sports as an alternative" that we've been hearing about for at least the last forty years.

They segued to the standard shots of "at-risk black youth" playing games in a gymnasium.

It was obvious that some corporate sponsor had stepped in -- each boy wore a brand-new identical football-type shirt, with gold sleeves and a white body.

On the back of each shirt, right between the shoulder blades, was a red bullseye and a single word --

"TARGET."

Here is why this is goinbg to be a major fuck up and make us look like bigger assess than we already are in this City.

1. How many people ar no shows/call off daily from special employement? When you have posts that NEED to be manned on this detail and people decide that they had one to many to drink the day before or that somethinf else came up, they will not go to work on the day THEY requested to work their RDO. Look how many guys turned into no shows/stopped signing up for CHA when the cars where taken away! Has housing ever been fully staffed?

2. Do you think these guys in the KMA Club who have the senority to get Special going to have the proper Uniform of the Day for the Detail? Whether you think it is right or not, they want ever one to look the same. It is called UNIFORM for a reason! The way GO is written you could have ten guys standing next to each other and have ten different variations of the uniform.

3. Do you think the people doing Special really want to do any work? Hell no, everyone is there just to cash a check. Do you really think that they are going to check cars and people that are trying to get through all these check points? I do not think so.

4. Every day you are going to have a different group of people out there and every day you are going to have to exlplain to them want their roles are again because they are new. Then not to mention that things are changing daily as well. There is a reason people do certain things and are not changed daily. The watch sec. iis the same person cause they learned what to do and they like it. They guy on a tact/gang team who always does warrants, they guy on the watch who alwasy does DUIs or traffic, they guy who always does dope. They do things cause the like too and it is easy for the to do over and over because they no what to do.

I am not saying any of this is rocket work but you have got to want to do it instead of just being out there for an OT check because then you have poeple who just do not give a fuck and will not show up/do the propoer work, etc

i work midnights and i looked up to see how many cars were asssigned to the 'obama detail'. the 4500 units have 10-12 cars. 021 has a few 06 car plus some 021st dist cars. 009, 002, and 008 each send 1 car. (YES 008, beat 858 the 10-sector rapid car). i dont know if each car is 1 or a 2 man car. but i counted at least 20 cars on midnights assigned to obama's house. plus there are god knows how many officers assigned to the federal building. all of the officers came from districts and are NOT on their regular day off.

Not to mention that the people who live there are never going to see any familiar faces and they will have to go through the same bullshit everyday because nobody is stationed there permanently.

Memo to Jody-

Buy some grease remover. Apply to forehead. Follow up with an application of Meguiar's Chrome Wax. Buff lightly and finish it off with two coats of Rain-X.

SCC - You started it with your posts about the Bears - the Feebs have this thing about subliminal psychology - so now Jody's appearing on TV wearing a Bears hoodie. What else can you get him to do?

Hope you dont step on your dick playing the police on your DAY OFF.I have enough sense to figure out jody and the little dick do not want us doing anything. Especially on our off days.Unlike some of the KMAers I work special with, I try to look and act professional when I represent the CPD.For most,if not all, of these special employment gigs we are there as a presence.THAT"S IT.If the city wants to pay me to do nothing, like shortshanks does with his friends and family, I'm going to jump on that and not step on my dick.
Good luck playing the police on your off days while jeopardizing your pension (if there'll be one for you in the future) company man. In the mean time I'm gonna get mine.Bring on more special!

KMA WOOOHOOO!!!

You mean Officers with seniority? Seniority is one of the few things right about this job. Eventually everyone gets a chance. I had to wait many years before I had enough time to apply for certain details. Your time will come.

My God! all you wet behind the ears cluster fucks...the sgts who are responsible for those details to date which were manned by reverse senority got a real taste of how you young "show me the Money" wah wah whiners work. Feedback was: these young pricks wouldn't stay on posts...disappeared even when ordered to stand as posted, complained about rain and cold 40 degees average temps...spent most of tour hunkered down in squads that were to be used for break or warm up, and of course were fixated on there cell phones, blackberry toys and barely concealed I- pods. As for uniform...had to run out and purchase non cargo pants, bitched about hat, failed to bring raincoat or warm enough jacket etc...This old Sgt wouldn't think of babysitting you whiney little dogs! I will continue to work O Hare with the 20 yr plus vets who show up as scheduled, on time and in uniform, prepared to work 8hrs and be more than highly visible, they to a man or woman are polite to the travelers, airline people, and fellow sworn members. oh yes on rare occassion the morbidly obese/couldn't look good in a uniform if he/she tried shows up, but damn, they still do all that is required and stick the full tour of duty out. You pathetic young ingrates will soon enough be surrounded by mostly whiney bitchers and CR obtainers like the ones that blogged...God help the city I have served so well then.

Thanks for your input junior.

Every issue you have mentioned is a supervision issue. No proper uniform, your sent home; removed from all ot programs for X period of time. Do not perform the duties of the post, same as above. That is why there is a discipline system.

People will conform quickly. Those that don't will suffer the consequences then stop requesting the detail. There will be enough that will conform to cover it. Most likely more junior officers, and this will allow them ot when they can't get the airports.

You are correct, it's not rocket science, but neither is being a Sgt, Lt, etc.

I agree, if people don't want to do it, don't sign up.

Unlike the the airports that back-fill cancellations from the request list, CHA is back-filled by 018 personnel.
