Lillie Strikes Again

Come on now. Seriously. In this day and age?
  • Why is Lillie "Burger King" Crump-Hales threatening to dump every Tactical or Gang Officer that does not buy a ticket AND attend the 003rd District Christmas party? How much more can she destroy the morale of that District?? I heard she was dumb, but give me a break! Stop treating your Officers like crap! It's obvious that you were never the working Police. She is truly a joke.
Do we really need this?

Come on SCC, you and I both know it's not just her and the third district it's every district. You want to wear jeans to work, you have to pay to play. Even the beloved Eugene(ok only loved by A.M.) let the word trickle down to the sergeants that it was very beneficial for the tact/gang teams to buy their tickets to the 009th district Christmas party.

Her and her friend Cynthia White. Couple weeks ago, 8th district cars were being dispatched to PO's homes in the morning telling them that either their time due was denied and that they were to report to 021 for roll call or that their time was approved and that they were off. This was dispatched from Cynthia White. Must be hard to plan anything if you don't know if you are or not getting your time granted until that day. White should be in jail. Crump-Hales at the Irish parade a year ago was locking up mothers in front of their young children because mom had Bailey's in her coffee. Neither have been the police, so why would they act like it?

Band together and force the Burger maiden's hand. She needs you more than you need her.

Only exceptionally bad supervisors, force their subordinates to buy party tickets. If you are a worker you will land on your feet.

I get the feeling that as much as morale has been so thoroughly gutted due to Weis, Masters, Sgt. Hamilton and Peterson that attendance at all patrol division Xmas parties will hit an all-time low this month.
Thanks for ruining what was once a decent, honorable profession, guys! Can't wait to see what a mess is in store for 2009!

It's a pretty well known fact that attendance at x-mas parties is down city-wide. I don't know about anybody from tact/gangs getting dumped for not going, but there are definitely strong-arm tactics used to get you to buy tickets. Our district has about 350 POs, approx 150 tickets were sold, and about 110 showed up.

I think it speaks volumes about the times we're in: Low morale. Bad economy. No end of the bullshit in sight.

We're at our ropes end and there's not enough slack to make a knot.....

OT-yesterday on third watch in 007 PO's calling for help during the fight couldn't get the location out on the radio. Someone asked what GPS was showing dispatcher said, "Nothing. I can see several other cars in the area but not him." Note:

1) If Jody really cared about officer safety, transponders would be in radios, not in the cars.
2) About an hour earlier GPS was used to admonish PO's who were slow to return from chase out of 007 district. It was working JUST FINE then! (And the message is: Shame on you for trying to catch armed robbers!)
3) This makes it very clear that GPS is for use AGAINST PO's, not FOR their safety.

Don't kid yourselves. EVERYTHING Jody does is designed to drop more PO's into the trick bag! Watch out for each other and stay safe!

If the tact teams don’t want to go then they should not go, it’s that simple. They should all get together and refuse to go. What is the worst she can do to them put them back on the watch? But that is the problem with this department; very few people have the balls to stick up for what they believe. So this tact team will buy the tickets and go to the party because, God forbid, they might be back on a beat car. I don’t feel sorry for them one bit. If they are going to let someone, especially a person like that, walk all over them then they deserve what they get and that goes for every other officer who is in the same situation. I have seen this year after year and the officer’s bitch, wine, and cry, but still go. The simple solution is to grow a pair. A few more years and I’m done. It will be nice to get away from all these crybabies. Signed a 26 year vet.

Lillie:

You always did have it goin' on, girl. Count me in for a dozen tickets at $55 each. And you couldn't pick a better set than the Jeffrey Pub on 7-1 and Jeffrey.

Meet me with the tickets. I'll pay you $660 cash money at the corner of 6-2 and Calumet at 0400 hrs. sharp. You'll recognize me by my deerstalker cap and the white lily in my lapel.

The rap and hip hop karaoke will be smokin'. Damn, my main man "Corn" has definitely got his shit together.

My table will just love the double and triple Whoppers for the entree. Just get rid of that nasty Burger King cheese and replace it with a decent French Brie or Camembert. Capers, caviar and truffles would also add panache to this gourmet feast. The Flamin' Hot Cheetos make for superb hors d'oeuvres.

I assume you will be serving Heinekens, Becks and Pilsner Urquell rather than those damn forty ouncers of horse piss.

What would Kwanzaa be without Courvoisier?

Will the offices from Grand Xing be carolling on Stony and the Grove again this year?

See you at 6-2 and Calumet tonight. You can come alone without your clout, Lillie. I've got your back.

I'm already gettin' that warm, fuzzy feeling inside.

This is not surprising. These commanders and brass we have today are not for the troops or have any clue how to be the working police. They are political ass kissers that if they had to confront a man with a gun they would piss in their pants and run the other way. Gene roy in 009 is a perfect example. This is a man who was promoted way beyond his abilities and every single scene he ran in the 009 district he fucked up. Cynthia white a thief and a crook who should of been in federal prison is rewarded by making her a captain.95 percent of these bosses we have now are basically political ass kissers who only care about themselves.

Just before the judge gives a fine the city prosecutor says non suit to the child saftey seat!? WTF??! He plead guilty!! The city wants revenue then they non suit almost everything? When I asked why it was non suited the prosecutor tells me that they like to give people a chance to comply. What a joke.

December 18, 2008 at 3:16 PM | Comments (0)

A Bolingbrook High School student was charged with disorderly conduct after saying he had a firearm, causing the school to be locked down for about a half-hour this morning.

The incident occurred around 10:30 a.m. after a teacher called security, according to a statement on the school's Web site. The school was locked down and searched but no gun was found.

The student later denied having a weapon.

The high school, 365 Raider Way, resumed normal operations about 30 minutes after the search."

Well, like it or not, your position on any Tact or Gang is voluntary and they can do basically anything they want with you. Change your start time beyond the 2 hr limit, change your day off at last minute or even your D.O.G.

Don't like getting strong armed into buying some tickets to a party? You do have a choice. But most out there for some reason are afraid to make that choice because it would mean going back to the watch. And that's where the bosses have you. They know that most guys/gals don't want to give up wearing the jeans at work. And that's about the only incentive left. Gone are the days where you duck out 2 -3 hrs early with no slip or go to court for an hour or two and then head home.

Districts I worked in years ago, people wanted to go to the party. A good time was always had. When an asshole boss did show up, they had to be nice to everyone. No one said much to them and they left shortly. Then the party really got good. We had this thing called camaraderie. Although many of you have never heard of it, it's actually a word in the English language, or was back then. The only time the party was boycotted was when the Commander was a real asshole. They were afraid Downtown would hear of it and they might get moved.

Every districts discretionary account's big fund raiser for the year is the Districts Christmas Party. Just what is that money used for? Who knows? retiree's gifts?

In Lilly's case, it must be an expense account so she can pick up the bill.

From the Chicago Tribune when the new commanders were made:

MEET YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD TOP COP

Grand Crossing District Cmdr. Lillie Crump-Hales

Joined Chicago police in 1981. Previous experience: School officer, undercover officer, youth detective, investigator, inspector general's office, sergeant, watch commander, patrol lieutenant, tactical lieutenant.

Biggest challenge: My biggest challenge is to reduce the violence in the community. I have set up a dialogue with the many community groups, residents and youth in the area in an attempt to bring all of the groups together to put the issues on the table and go forward from there.

Specific recent incident in the district and how you dealt with it: The conflict between rival community schools. Two schools in my district had a rivalry that has been in existence for years. We utilized the Gary Comer Youth Center as a neutral place to bring the youth together. We invited motivational speakers and brought in Burger King to use the team-building concept. The children were placed in groups and instructed to select a name for the Whopper and then select two individuals from the group to make the Whopper. The youth came together and were able to work together, which resulted in teamwork and conflict resolutions.

"We had this thing called camaraderie. Although many of you have never heard of it, it's actually a word in the English language, or was back then."

It went the way of Morale. In most if not all organizations it's dictated& fostered by Management. It started falling by the wayside the longer the Runt Mayor stayed in office. The cut-throat era began,Bosses that dictated Policy were career housemouses along the lines of Matt Rodriguez, Jim Maurer or handpicked daley Civilian suckholes with Zero Police experience, Barb MacDonald for one and the Street-wise Bosses were forced out or retired after seeing the writing on the wall. In the meantime Senority went south when bosses started culling the herd for Young turks they could manipulate & control and partners would leave the other for some bullshit tac spot or inside job or a regular car? lol.
It's now every man for himself on this stinking rathole ship some call the Chicago Police Dept. Weis is just the continuation of the deterioration.
It's Merry Christmas today, SCREW YOU the other 364 days of the year.

I hear that Lilly Crum Hales is a

Watch for Shields to leave the CPD in the first half of next year. His demotion had nothing to do with his on and off-duty exploits. His demotion came after a meeting with J-Fed in which he told J-Fed his was leaving to take a job with the Federal Homeland Security.

This made it easy for J-Fed to demote a problem child. The official story will be that Shields was unhappy with his demotion and decided to look elsewhere for employment.

Districts I worked in years ago, people wanted to go to the party. A good time was always had. When an asshole boss did show up, they had to be nice to everyone. No one said much to them and they left shortly. Then the party really got good. We had this thing called camaraderie. Although many of you have never heard of it, it's actually a word in the English language, or was back then. The only time the party was boycotted was when the Commander was a real asshole. They were afraid Downtown would hear of it and they might get moved.

I agree 100%!! I'm not sure about other districts, but districts where I have worked, it was a Christmas/Retirement Party where all the years retirees were honored. I was never forced to go, but I always went to honor and congratulate the retirees for their years of service and that they finally made it to retirement!! I just personally feel it's the right thing to do. After all, the retirees deserve a good showing!

SCC, I attended the 003rd District Christmas/Retirement Party this evening. Other than the fact that it was not a bad party in terms of others I have attended while in the 003rd District one thing occured which I am wondering if anyone else experienced. After the presentation of the awards to the retirees, awards were presented to Officers of the Month. There was also an award presented for Officer of the Year, none of which I have ever seen during a retirement party in 23 years on this Department. Then there was an award for perfect attendance given to officers who did not use the medical for the last year. My questions are as follows: Has 35th Street finally realized that morale is actually as low as we all know it is? Have they created this somewhat kneejerk reaction handing out these meaningless awards for attendance, which were by the way printed up as Honorable Mentions, in an attempt to get the rank and file to believe they are looking out for us/have our backs? Are they hoping that by handing out these worthless pieces of paper to us we will turn a blind eye towards the lack of a contract, and the red hot poker of an endoscopy we will most likely get in future contracts? Have other districts done the same thing in regards to the officers of the month/year, and attendance awards? I apologize for the long post and the probable spelling errors, but the gin was top shelf at the party!!! Stay safe boys and girls, and stick together.

Don't like getting strong armed into buying some tickets to a party? You do have a choice. But most out there for some reason are afraid to make that choice because it would mean going back to the watch. And that's where the bosses have you. They know that most guys/gals don't want to give up wearing the jeans at work. And that's about the only incentive left. Gone are the days where you duck out 2 -3 hrs early with no slip or go to court for an hour or two and then head home.

The ironic part of all of this is what passes as good police work for a tact team.
The days of a majority of tact pinches being part 1's is long over.

I am not making a judgment on the p.o.'s working tact, they are doing what is asked of them. Things have gone from quality to quantity, all in the name of job security for the exempts.

The exempts go to these meetings with the supt. and tell him of all the arrests. They all pat themselves on the back, then come back to the district and want more activity. Never mind that the violent crime continues to rise.

The parties are the same, numbers, numbers, numbers. All for bragging rights at the exempt meetings.

Lets keep it real ladies and gents. I was on a gang team for several years. I was told every year I had to buy a xmas party ticket or it was back to the watch.

I remember my first year on the team two veteran guys from tact didn't buy a ticket. They were sent back to the watch starting the 1st period.

They sucked ass the next few years trying to get back on a team. They ended up bidding out of the dist as they couldn't get back on tact.

I say kudos to that Tact Lt for being a man and not standing by his words. Many have said this, 003 is a shithole. Who cares what you work? BS domestics are BS domestics take your time there is no quota. Be a man and stand up to the boss and see what happens.

I work in a unit now. I bought a ticket to the xmas party. I'm not a fool, I like it in a unit. I won't do something so dumb as to not buy a xmas party ticket. I went to the party had two drinks, dinner, and made sure the boss saw me. I was in bed by 1030.

When he was a Cmdr. of 006, all but one of his W/C's were WHITE, as was his tact Lt. I don't think much has changed since he took over 021. If he had to kick some of dog assed motherfuckers in the ass to get some work out of you, and some of you dogs were white, then so be it. You had a chance to pick up your slackdog pace (and everyone outside of 021 knows your tact unit isn't much anyway; even many of your beat officers are an embarrassment), and you chose to lie down. Expect that someone is going to look at your stats and lean on your lazy asses. If you want to stay in dog ass mode and wish to work south, there's always 022 or 008. Get packing!

Lillie's not doing anything that any other DC isn't doing or hasn't done....promote the party. Quit whining, and buy your ticket.
Working tact/gangs is still better than a beat car. If it weren't, districts wouldn't have them.
Go or don't go, it's up to you, but ante up. Why would you NOT want to support your district retirees? You'll be there yourself someday, if you're lucky.

Er...that's true, sort of. I've been to all kinds of parades here when my kids were growing up, and I never stood out there getting smashed on green beer. No wonder the youth are so out of hand at at the South SLIDE Irishfest, many of the parents seem to be professors of ignorance...and it's all about respecting your own neighborhood, too.

To all the white officers who feel they are being discriminated against based on their skin color there is only one answer, BEEF plain and simple.

I haven't hit the medical or missed a day in maybe ten years. I have never asked a supervisor to hold a slip. I do maybe 85 arrests and 85 movers a year. Nothing to brag about, but decent work. I will allow No supervisor to place the value of this kind of work below the price of a fucking banquet ticket.

No supervisor I know of has the balls to threaten me face to face like that. Should one be found I will embarrass him or her beyond their wildest imagination.

I don't go to these events because they are NO FUN. Assholes holding green bottles of beer standing around and talking shop. Give me a break.

I think all supervisors need to have re-curring training and new leadership tactics should be included.

I hope Day is NOT still on the job. I think you mean Doty not Dody. Well, the new guys, we have to give a chance, the old farts like Walsh and Stanly, who need a complete makeover, well, they just cannot be helped. Is Lewis a woman or a man?

I wasn't complaining Francis, I was voicing an opinion and asking a valid question as to why these awards were being brought out. In fact I do appreciate the fact that the exemplary, (look it up in the dictionary Francis), officers were recognized for their hard work. I DO NOT feel that officers such as yourself should have been recognized for coming to work, which would be the first step in holding a job. You must be very new, or this is obviously your first real job. Were you the guy who wanted to know where the 2 free White Sox tickets were for the perfect attendance? B T W I got a perfect attendance award too...it'll hang right in front of the throne so I will always be reminded of MY exemplary service.

Looney Rooney says: Did you ever wonder how these station creatures look in the mirror at themselves? Most of them need a lesson about the words CHARITABLE, VOLUNTARY, GIVING, OPENHANDED. They walk around the station with an “Attendance & Absence Sheets” list and strong arm people to purchase tickets to these F@#%^$% popularity parties. If you don't pay they mark you on the A & A sheet in red ohhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh, Then they make sure that the Sgt.s and Lt.s know who didn't pay for a ticket. They even tell you that they have to get a head count and tell the Sgt or Lt.s who didn't pay..OOOhhhhhhhhhhhhh..then they say it's probably better that you buy a ticket even if your not going to attend, Then they suggest that you buy a ticket waive the purchased ticket around in the air so that people (bosses) know you bought a ticket and then give the ticket to one of your buds so that their wife or friends can use the ticket.

Instead of walking around the office turning off the lights and hiding in the restroom these office creatures should pick up a file and try solving a case!

Then it will be time to collect for a bunch of Sgts. at thirty or forty dollars per officer. Like they have done so much that they actually deserve these gifts, offerings, handouts ..... for what?,

I have bosses I like, I spend time with them, If I want to buy one lunch, I will. If I want to buy one a drink, I will. WHY? Because I want to VOLUNTARY!!!!!! As so can they!

I also have bosses I don’t like and often avoid being around them, Why? Because I can…as so can they!

Why don’t these office creatures collect from them and get a party going for the people who tow the line everyday.. The people who get the job done, who show up everyday, the people who know their jobs, do their jobs and are not busy looking for reasons not to do their jobs! Yeah put that in your e-cigar and smoke it.

Then they will DEMAND twenty $ per officer for their commander's Xmas gift….. nice ..$ 20 Xs 150-200 officers……..TALK ABOUT PLAY TO PAY !!!!!!!.

Then stickers....then paper gym shoes... then paper diapers.......then whatever...
Many if not all of these charities are in need, we knoe that , we get it… and are very important! and do wonderful work.!.. but Gee Wiz.... See a poster on a wall and give VOLUNTARILY is one thing and that’s the way they are suppose to operate,, taking A&A sheets and strong arming anyone (especially in these times) with threats that your telling that someone didn't VOLUNTEER to give at the office … IN THE ATTEMPTS OF SHAMING SOMEONE OR GIVING POWER TO SOME BOSS TO USE THIS TO FUKC SOMEONE WITH THE SHIT ASSIGNMENTS IS ABSOLUTLY RIDICULOUS…. SHAME ON YOU for hiding in your little corners until you hear the bell that signals that you have to push Tickets, stickers, pieces of paper, candy, pop corn, pop corn, raffle tickets, wrapping paper, cookies, toffee, discount coupons, pins, caps, hats T-shirts… WHATEVER!

You office creature don’t know what % of our pay already goes to charitable organizations, on our own VOLUNTARILY !!!! Organizations that WE feel NEED OUR HELP… but we don’t walk around the office chasing people and publicly forcing them to give to our choices.. Yes we give to cancer fights because we have someone that is close to us who is fighting or has unfortunately fought is loosing or has lost and we GIVE IN THEIR NAMES …….NOT YOURS so you could keep your precious spot or in some Commander’s name so he could wooooo J-FED to keep his/her precious spot…

You jusT FUKCING wait for that FUKCING bell to ring because that’s YOUR signal to get off your BIG FAT ASS and do something to protect your PRECIOUS office creature position!

___________________________________

From the Chicago Tribune when the new commanders were made:

MEET YOUR NEIGHBORHOOD TOP COP

Grand Crossing District Cmdr. Lillie Crump-Hales

Joined Chicago police in 1981. Previous experience: School officer, undercover officer, youth detective, investigator, inspector general's office, sergeant, watch commander, patrol lieutenant, tactical lieutenant.

Biggest challenge: My biggest challenge is to reduce the violence in the community. I have set up a dialogue with the many community groups, residents and youth in the area in an attempt to bring all of the groups together to put the issues on the table and go forward from there.

Specific recent incident in the district and how you dealt with it: The conflict between rival community schools. Two schools in my district had a rivalry that has been in existence for years. We utilized the Gary Comer Youth Center as a neutral place to bring the youth together. We invited motivational speakers and brought in Burger King to use the team-building concept. The children were placed in groups and instructed to select a name for the Whopper and then select two individuals from the group to make the Whopper. The youth came together and were able to work together, which resulted in teamwork and conflict resolutions.

Thank You for responding. LOL
