Class Act

A real "Boss:"
  • At 2230hrs. on Zone 1 a true display of CLASS was heard for all to listen. “1600” …..”Good morning sir” …..“May I have the air for a moment” ….”Go ahead Tony” Commander Anthony Riccio went on to say “people are so quick to blame and judge us and accusing us of doing wrong thing but no one ever tell use when we do something right.” He went on to explain that “some officers where accused of a making some racist phone call to the F.B.I. The case is now closed and it was not one of us. I want to thank you officers for the great job you guys do out there everyday ..Thank you”.
Now how about the FOP goes after the Slum Times for this crap reporting and this half-assed follow-up. And maybe Larry Yellen's hit piece on Channel 32 and his next-to-useless follow-up the next day. If we believed in conspiracy theories, we'd imagine Shortshanks was directing the smear campaign himself.

We can almost believe the comments popping up that Aunt Bea offered her resignation, but J-Fed was told by the political masters not to accept it, because leaving her in place would further enrage the rank-and-file, contribute to the bad publicity demoralizing the Department, undermine both J-Fed and Bea and distract from the voices objecting to the Daley's Quest for Fire.

After watching the nerd Yellin's investigative report, it undoubtedly clear that his source was an FBI Agent that called the media and that same FBI agent is his "source" that works in the same office where the call was received.

FBI are nor our friends!

Who else would know that these calls were made?
A liberal, FBI rat bypassed all efforts to determine who made the call, and used their law enforcement inexperience and called the media to break the story as a hero and then realized they screwed up and that someone else actually made the call.

Funny that the media never covers FBI's mistakes and injustices.

Absolutely disgusting. This is the same FBI office that our current Supt worked for and he is know running our corrupt Department!

Let me tell you something, it was the F.O.P. attorney contacted by members of 016 that put this info out to the press. That's right, as IAD, the FBI and the Secret Service tried to keep a wrap on this crap until it was vetted out, it was none other than the FOP attorney, ex 011 Dist copper DH who brought this to the attention of Fox! Keep that in mind when you choose an attorney. None of this would be public knowledge if not for HIM! He was blabbing about the situation to anyone who would listen minutes after the first copper contacted him and the MISINFORMATION that was reported by Fox was exactly what was fed to this loser. Yes, it was a mistake, but it was a mistake that only a handful of coppers would know about instead of giving the press another opportunity to make us all out to be fools.

This never should have hit the press. Thanks Dan! You almost hung out the guys you told to LIE to the FBI. Thank God they knew better, and had nothing to hide! Do your selves a favor; if you find yourself in a legit jam, get a REAL attorney! Don't rely on this goof. He may sell you out to Larry Yellin hours before IAD clears your good name. And yes, it DOES happen!

Worked for Tony when he was my Sgt. on 1st watch in 016 in the early 90's. Was a class act and a great boss back then. We all knew he would make Commander some day. More bosses should pick his brain and learn how to lead from him. I think he is the only good thing Weisel did by promoting him. Tony I would work for you anytime any place. But don't praise him too much or he would have to watch his back from the haters on the 5th floor.

As Rambo said in the movie First Blood, "They're all gone sir." Tony Riccio may be the last one left. He is truely a great boss and class act! Nearly every group of coppers I run into across the city just shake their heads about the tragedy our police department has become. It's so sad what has happened and it gets worse every month. I have attended roll calls in units that I don't even know the officers there and it's the same feeling everywhere. There are countless stories of the destruction of the department far too many to post. We have leaders wearing our uniform that were never Chicago Police Officer and still aren't. We have J-Fed's policy "think tank group" that know nothing about being the police and are so far out of touch with the working copper. B Cuello getting special treatment etc. etc. etc. And as Troutman said to Rambo in the movie First Blood, "It's over Johnny."

What I don't understand is why would da mayor want to ruin the CPD? It just doesn't make any sense. It not only makes him look bad but also the city. Most of all the officers and citizens of Chicago are the ones that suffer the brunt.

If it his intention to demoralize this once grand and proud department for whatever twisted reason....why give him the satisfaction? Then you are playing right into his hand.

I know there is no contract, no backing from most of the higher ups as well as many other problems but coming from three generations of CPD, it just saddens me to see this once tough, take no crap, proud CPD fall apart.

God bless the hard working officers and stay safe.

This whole thing sounded like bullshit from jump street. What P.O., in their right mind would make that kind of call (or any call, for that matter) to the FBI, from their home or anywhere?

Pleeze. At least Monique had the good sense to state that there was no indication that it was a CPD member who made the call.

More than likely it's some dumbass wannabe, who identified himself as CPD, made the call.

Kudos to Riccio.

Maybe Riccio can talk to Commander Calloway from 007 and find out why 20 people from 1st watch submitted par forms for recognized vacancies, I guess the combination of calhoun and augustyn are to much for them to handle.
A little pep talk may be in order, 007 is bad enough but to have to work for idiots in 007 is just not right.

There is so very little on this police department that can be called a "class act." That a commander going on the police radio to publicly defend his troops in the face of vicious allegations can be called a "class act" is pathetic.

There were many fine examples of individual courage and leadership during the final hours of the maiden voyage of the Titanic. The ship still sank.

Larry Yellen is a lying, manipulating scum reporter. Why does anyone even watch Fox tv? In 2007 Yellen did a piece on a cop that was full of lies, slander and false reporting. Why the guy did'nt sue Yellen and Fox is beyond me. Yellen, believe it or not is a non practicing lawyer-if he had a law license he would have been disbarred by now. The off duty po's who worked part time at Fox tv studio used to tell stories about how they would overhear Yellen Skip Jacobsen and some of the other bottom feeding Fox reporters would manipulate and change news facts to suit their own means. I stopped watching FOX and I don't patronize ANY FOX TV news sponsor.
Yellen, please trespass in a police facility or send one of your inbred intern flunkies so I can fling them in the lockup.
Yellen you and Fox TV sucks
By the way, who was the Fox TV producer that got locked up for kiddie porn, Yellen? That did'nt make the TV news!!!

I really like this Ricco guy. He sent a Dept email to every copper that lives in the 016th district and asked them if they want to be on a email notification list for crime trends happening in the district. He really gives a shit about the coppers that live in the district he commands. I never worked for the man, but would now.

We need someone with real leadership like him at the helm of this sinking and stinking ship.

Riccio is like a breath of fresh air, very few would not be happy working for him. Im part irish and I must say that irish boss's are usually sullen, bi-polar micro managing drunks. Suffering a range of psychological problems in most cases caused by a dominating mother. Every italian boss I have ever worked for has been light hearted and fun to be around.

Hine site is always 20 20. At no time did she offer anything. If Jfed had half the brain and even if she did, that is the first thing they should have at least said, but what did he do, immediately state she was not culpable for what occurred on her property, though we have laws that say different, the Mayor has a whole legal team that says different and CPD has a whole team of officers making sure we say different. Oh yeah, she headed up that team of officers. She inherited the most incompetent Lieutenant in the world, but that is another story. We hear Dugan knows better and at least standing up for the hard working officers and booting that idiot!

Anyway, back to bigger fish. If she had done so, don't you think that would have been the first thing he said? Don't you think she would have come to work! She could have at least held her head up high! Her husband spoke to his close Exempt friends and tried to explain their position. No matter how you try, the law is still the same rather you are a CPD Boss that ran the unit that governed issues as this, or Joe Blow the Citizen. I despise with all I can Mary Mitchell, but she spoke the absolute truth. Now Mike Masters (the sorriest excuse for a CPD employee, hell he would be a sorry volunteer) and the absolute stupidest Superintendent in history have once again, helped to totally disgrace us and feed us more dog shit. Mayor Daley is making us eat it each and every day. How long must we endure Mayor Daley. We are disgusted for good reason. I am not a disgruntled employee. I am not a person passed over for promotion. I am a strong Daley supporter, I enjoy my job, I like catching the bad guy and building cases to remove them as permanent as I can from the street. The more you allow shit like this, the more the judges and attorneys discredit the hard working police. We are labeled subconsciously whenever bullshit happens as this and the citizens consider it a cover up. These people are only human.

I am a Detective in Area Two, the absolute worst area in the city. Due to horrible economic conditions, the people that live within this area have become more and more violent, just to survive and the innocent are preyed upon every day. I need to prosecute these people (the true criminals), but no matter what I do, the judge and even our own States Attorney look at me with a crossed eye. All the bad guy has to say is we did something out of character and the stage has been set. 20 years ago when I first made Detective, we were respected, our word was good, and our impact was great. Thanks to just the history of CPD and now JFED, we have been set back another 20 years and I don't have that long to give, so March 15th, I bid you all farewell. I don't give a shit if you figure out who I am. I am speaking the truth. I will take my 1,700 hours and run! Fuck you very much Mayor Daley, Superintendent Jodi Weiss and someone who never should have been promoted from a Commander to that level (experience and years of real hard work, not office time and being on your knees) Assistant Superintendent Beatrice Cuello!

Dear SCC, thank you for giving us a place to vent first and foremost.

People world-wide document history as to not repeat it, especially when we see the true effects. Historically, even if for a few months, CPD has every Boss rise through the ranks, especially to the level you have now promoted Beatrice Cuello and for that matter James Jackson. It has all been for a reason, but did you think about that? No, your stupidity precedes you! They were both Commanders and had not been promoted beyond that for good reason. Cuello never ever was the street police. She was always taken care of by Bosses and always seemed to find her way home with them. All of that was for good reason. James Jackson was moved from the Detective Division to 011 based on his stupidity and track record. How could you not run a Detective Division? That unit runs itself, hell look at Commander Eddie Welch and Patricia Walsh. Please don't say that I am being racist, I am not, I am just stating the facts. They are two of the worst Commanders in history. He has no balls, has no real clue, Lt. Dennis Walsh who has the intelligence and experience to handle situations like this called him on his bullshit/incompetence and got booted and Commander "Homeless Girl" Walsh can't speak a complete sentence with confidence and looks like a homeless person and just plain old has no clue how to be effective!

My point is that at every level you learn something that actually positively impacts the department. You HAVE to go through the ranks to be effective. Then the Mayor find you Jfed, You probably did well at the FBI but you have no clue as to how to deal with street level policing nor the community where we get most of our information and support, has now been brought here. Just like you did there, you pick the ones you want to investigate and hold accountable. If you were half the man (well you are half a man) you were portrayed to be, maybe it would have worked initially and you could have bullhsitted the rest. But the dumb fuck that you are, you got rid of ALL the true bosses and replaced them with would be bosses. The bosses that had the historical experience and perspective were all passed over, with the exception of Michael Shields. I don't like him, but at least he had the knowledge we needed and the passion. He also had the support of all old Superintendents who could have help shed better light on our issues.

Look at the bullshit we see now. Hell Cuello still runs Patrol and stupid ass Dugan is just a figure head. Hell, all of her people are still there and guess what, will be. He does just what she did, selects the Commanders to shit on. They happen to all be minority because Jfed has given all the minorities the SHIT Districts!

Jfed, you made your first mistake when you surrounded yourself with civilians. This is a police department, did you know that? Mike Masters especially has helped ruin your career. You should have listened. Then you bring Hamilton to your office, Mike Masters' best friend, who talks to everyone like shit. Though he has a law degree,he has NO EXPERIENCE! That makes all the difference in the world. Then you have Cuello and Jackson. Enough said. You doomed yourself before you started! Please leave. The summer is coming, we as police need the police to be the police. No matter how many Commanders you shit on, no matter how many you dump, it will still be the same old story different day! They cannot make us work and we will never work for you! NEVER!!!!

All of you news reporters, you live in Chicago right and so does your families? The criminals we pass by will most definitely be in YOUR community by the time it gets hot outside!

Sounds like an ARDC complaint if warranted, there is an attorney/client privilage, he should never have been discussing the case.

Word is, this particular attorney also has strong ties to Dick Devine, who has strong ties to the mayor himself. Do you think he is an FOP attorney by accident? Daley is keeping tabs on the FOP from the inside. It appears FOP is in bed again with the city. Hope you all enjoy how your dues are being spent. I would definitely start asking some questions. You are entitled, FOP is supposed work for its members.

from the rumor dept.: a) supposedly district bosses have to send a report to Dugan this week re: the reduction in tickets, and what they plan to do about it; b) according to sources, if the "numbers" (homicides, agg batt's) don't improve by April or May, another round of boss housecleaning will take place (all to impress the Olympic folks); c) speaking of Olympics, hearing that there will be a "de-emphasis" on the reporting of violent crime by the local media types (unless, of course, the "numbers" improve); big time pressure from the 5th floor....

I really like this Ricco guy. He sent a Dept email to every copper that lives in the 016th district and asked them if they want to be on a email notification list for crime trends happening in the district. He really gives a shit about the coppers that live in the district he commands. I never worked for the man, but would now.

We need someone with real leadership like him at the helm of this sinking and stinking ship.

2/15/2009 08:05:00 AM

Yes. I agree. We need to watch our own backyard and Riccio and his crew in 016 is doing just that. Every little bit helps, every resource helps and the leadership that recognizes the need helps. Thanks Cmdr.

And yes, it DOES happen!
I ECHO YOUR COMMENT ON D.H.
D.H. is a complete ass. I approached him a couple of years ago to ask in confidence what he thought I should do in re: to a settlement conference in which the City was demanding I pay money to help settle the case. I was being sued because of actions of a partner caught on video tape. Dan not only told me it was a good deal and to pay the money, he then typed up a memo to the grievance committee and disclosed all that I had told him in confidence in this memo convincing the grievance committee to withdraw my grievance on the recommended discipline in this case. He knew I was pissed and was forced by Donahue to call me to do damage control. When he called me I expressed my disappointment and asked him if I had any confidentiality rights in what I told him. His response: " I represent the FOP before I represent you officer." Just so you know where your dues are going officers. This is one of our staff labor attorneys paid with our dues to represent us and this is the kind of response I get. By the way he has been seen several time at traffic court representing defendants. Kind of a conflict of interests don't you think? I asked Donahue about this and our FOP actually knows about this and allows it. Amazing just amazing.

Daley connected, you bet. Good boss, never worked for him don't know.

There a few bosses who are connected enough to rest easy upon that connection, and therefore don't have to rely on how hard or how often they shit on their own personnel.

Obviously the guy doesn't require an ego boost from his job description by stepping on his men, either by personality or connection assurance. Looks like he still gets to keep his own personality for now and support his men.

Good luck on the way up Tony, we'll see if you can stay the same.

It's called "wilding".

Poor, oppressed, inner-city, African American males take the CTA to an affluent Caucasian area.

The poor, oppressed, inner-city, African American males then randomly select a Caucasian pedestrian(s) surround them, beat them, rob them and sometimes rape them.

While performing the above acts they proclaim their racial pride and use racial epithets in a very derogatory manner.

The reason this practice is not advertised or broadcast, by the Chicago Controlled Media, is that the Caucasians generally change their residences immediately after. For some reason they choose to relocate to the suburbs and choose to avoid Chicago at all costs.

Personally, I think the Caucasian citizens should be more sociable and introduce the poor, oppressed, inner-city African American males to their friends, Smith & Wesson.

SCC,

This may have been covered before but, maybe not in this manner. I think this would make a good post and hopefully a decent reporter shoves this in daley's face during our budget crunch. As we all know and appreciate Gps units have been installed in many of the city's vehicles, if I were to guess a low number would be 3000 vehicles and if I were to estimate the cost with a slight bit of knowledge from conversations with motor maintenance the cost for a complete install per vehicle is $2500.00 so that would be a fleet cost of aprox. $55,000.00, keep these figures in the back of your head. As for the GPS units we are required to pay a $48.00 monthly service charge for the use of the verizon network and a $35.00 a monthly charge for the GPS feature. The city currently pays for every pdt in service or not the same $48.00 a month fee to use the verizon network (Huberman's great gift to the department)so, one would ask we cant we do GPS by using the PDTS? GPS systems are fully integerable to our pcs as they run windows xp in the background. So, I ask why does the city not streamline all of this into our pdt's? The city could save the additional vehicle cost of outfitting the squad cars with all those antennas and equip every vehicle with a pdt and than not pay that same vendor twice for a the same data service. 3000 vehicles times $48.00 per vehicle comes out to $144,000.00 a month now times that by 12 for months in a year and the police department spends $1,728,00.00 a year on a service we already have in the vehicles... Now apply that to all departments in the city: revenue, oemc vehicles and watch the money flow out. So GPS has been deployed for the last two years and we have paid over 3,000,000.00 what a deal!!!

The Obama Plan has Police in it. Lets see how much of this pays for the Olympic bid.

The stimulus bill includes plenty of green for those wearing blue.

The compromise bill doles out more than $3.7 billion for police programs, much of which is set aside for hiring new officers.

The law allocates $2 billion for the Byrne Justice Assistance Grant, a program that has funded drug task forces and things such as prisoner rehabilitation and after-school programs.

An additional $1 billion is set aside to hire local police under the Community Oriented Policing Services program. The program, known as COPS grants, paid the salaries of many local police officers and was a "modest contributor" to the decline in crime in the 1990s, according to a 2005 government oversight report.

Both programs had all been eliminated during the Bush administration.

The bill also includes $225 million for general criminal justice grants for things such as youth mentoring programs, $225 million for Indian tribe law enforcement, $125 million for police in rural areas, $100 million for victims of crimes, $50 million to fight Internet crimes against children and $40 million in grants for law enforcement along the Mexican border.

As long as the Mayor and the Police and Fire Commission allow this kind of shake up bullshit, we will never have an Exempt do their job, make a change or take a stand.

If the Commander holds the officers feet to the fire and expect them to do their job, he is a piece of shit and all of us know someone somewhere that can get to the Superintendent, then here we go. Here is the bullshit rumors and messages that he or she is not doing a good job. I have been a tact sergeant for a few years and I have seen my fair share of bosses here, and I have got to say that this one is getting shit every day because the people at 35th street are telling the people that THEY surrounded him with it is okay. The moment he holds our feet to the fire, then the other Sergeants talk down about him to our people and so on and so on and on. I don't want the Commander to be my friend, but I do expect us all to do our fucking job as much as he is trying to do his! On top of that, can we get some fucking cars. I have the Watch Commander taking Tact cars trying to utilize them for rapids and taking the rapid cars and using them as beat cars. What the fuck! Can we get some fucking cars!

I don't love what I do anymore, hell I don't even like it, but it pays the bills. The whole job has now changed and us Sergeants that have been around see nothing but whining as PO's on up. I remember when it was not acceptable to bad mouth a Commander or not do your fucking job. Now we are all shoveling shit from one pile to the next and talking shit in the process. I am so sick of TRU in my fucking District. I would love to have the bodies here so we can do so real work instead of just locking folks up on the corners. We need to target the whole faction, not the bullshit street stuff. The real crimes and the planning of real crimes does not take place on 79th and Stony! If the Commander of TRU were the real police and did not come from some cushy bull shit spot down town, he would know that. If we had a Superintendent who was the real police, he would know that!

RW in 025 wrote a TV van for parking in a handicap. This was during the time Capt MB was trying to secure his station during the Abbate (POS) court hearing. Anyways RW just took 3 days for that. Funny, A capt secures his station and gets launched, a PO writes a TV van who is parked illegally in a handicapped spot and he takes 3 days. I guess we should leave the parking lot open and the station open. Its not like a 14 yr old is going to come in and play the Police or anything.

Hey guys and gals: Commander Riccio did not come on the air that night to have this shit on the blog, i belive he did it because he knew that the officers that were being investigated and their co-workers were out in the field working that night and that they would want to know that their names and the 16th dist were cleared by the F.B.I and Secret Service. Commander Riccio was in contact with the accused officer from day one, and that officer assured the Commander that he did not make any calls that night from a crime scene. the officer and the Commander knew that there was a push by the F.B.I./Secret Service to conclude this investigation right away. The accused officer was informed by Commander Riccio on day one that he belived the officer was innocent and during this investigation kept in contact with the officer. Thanks for your support Commander..H.B

What happened on Ontario and Michigan? Any arrest? Hate crime charges sought? I was downtown last night and saw the police had streets blocked off near Ontario and Michigan Ave. A woman who was punched in the back of the head said informd me she was beat up by a group of African Americans who were running around and randomly beating up white folks. I contacted a buddy in 018 who confirmed the story and learned that several people were sent to area hospitals, some serious. Why did the news not report this?

2/15/2009 12:38:00 PM

It's called "wilding".

Poor, oppressed, inner-city, African American males take the CTA to an affluent Caucasian area.

The poor, oppressed, inner-city, African American males then randomly select a Caucasian pedestrian(s) surround them, beat them, rob them and sometimes rape them.

While performing the above acts they proclaim their racial pride and use racial epithets in a very derogatory manner.

The reason this practice is not advertised or broadcast, by the Chicago Controlled Media, is that the Caucasians generally change their residences immediately after. For some reason they choose to relocate to the suburbs and choose to avoid Chicago at all costs.

Personally, I think the Caucasian citizens should be more sociable and introduce the poor, oppressed, inner-city African American males to their friends, Smith & Wesson.

When I came on the job 23 years ago, I worked with a lot of old-timers. When men were men, and chain of command meant something. Balls were balls, and respected. A lot of them are gone now, and it's hard to comprehend that now I'm an 'old-timer'. Tony came on the job around the same time as me.

I think he learned some things from those old-timers. It's sad to think that the breed may be dying. I have been thinking that there is no way to save this department, but if he were at the helm, who knows....but then if Daley gets to him, he's sunk.

This is an issue that wrecks the inner core of a department made up of many different races of people.

Failure to see offenders as CRIMINALS, instead of by what color they may be, will continue to cause friction between members, create less effective TEAM policing, and continue to alienate the community(MEANING ONE) that this department is meant to serve.

I really wish that this person, along with any like-minded individuals on this department, would gather together, and run, or better yet, crawl slowly back and forth across the Dan Ryan expressway, wearing all black clothing, at approximately 9PM on a Friday night.

Listen up Liberal Turd,

The two terms are mutually exclusive. At no time did he say "all african americans" were sons of bitches. He singled out the criminals. And the description of the criminals as "african americans" is a necessary part of the description, not as a slam on the entirely of the black people.

Failure to see that is exactly why this city is in the state it is. How about preaching some individual responsibility? Fuck your "it takes a village" attitude and start taking individual responsibility

Look no further than the commander who was told to order his officers so sign disclaimers giving up their rights to Sgt. pay for dignitary protection. He said he couldn't do it according to what I heard and was dumped back to Lt.

This is what "good bosses" get for standing up for the troops. Anyone who believes that J-Fed or most of his exempts have our interests at heart has been sniffing glue to long.

Couple that with the fresh set of hand-outs in the Obama stimulus bill, you've got a whole bunch of people who have been stripped of ANY motivation to take responsibility for their own lives. The entitlement mindset either sets in, or continues to thrive.
So, when the free money runs out, usually in the middle of the month, the criminals will move to where the victims will have something of value to take. Which they feel that they have a right to take, from anyone, but especially from Whitey.

sounds to me like the original poster was just giving the FACTS of the crime and not making it racial. but the fact remains with the chicago media, if the offenders were white, the news would have picked it up right away ! african american offenders on white victims...swept under the rug IMMEDIATELY !

will say this...believe it or not there are quite a few good younger bosses on this job..Kevin Ryan,and Chris Kennedy...both great guys..also.Deputy Keating..is a VERY stand up guy!!..Some guys in 001 got caught up in some REAL BULLSHIT,and he went to bat for them. Ask the guys in mass transit about Commander Graber...another great guy...so there still are some very good bosses on the job...and I digress ...Riccio is also and always has been a great boss.

Don't forget Steve G. in 018...talk about a mercural ascent, my johnson hasn't been able to rise that fast in years...humble, clean cut, hands on, keeps an eye on the ball...his hands, eyes, and balls were on scene (as a sgt.) for the '03 Cabrini riot but he managed to walk away from that clusterfuck unscathed, just the kind of teflon leader the Mayor foams at the mouth for...

DON'T TELL ANYONE: rumor is Steve's being groomed to take over sgt. Keating's post in Central Control Group per the Mayor...Keating's being annointed to fix the CPD district station security mess el pronto (that's "fast" for all you non-spanglish speakers)...remember you digested and threw it up here first.

As long as we continue to bend over for these press whores you KNOW what we are going to get.And it isnt with a kiss or with lube. Im searching for Yellens Info and as soon as i get it under FOI, Id like to post it here so the candy ass paper jockey wimp can perhaps THINK before he beats his gums up the next time and makes a bigger ass of himself than he already is.

You may not like the guy for whatever bizarre reason ... but he;s never been anywhere near a 'goof' - and I can't even imagine why you dislike the guy really ... I don't think he's ever gone out of his way to hurt anyone ...

Today another citizen out for a jog got robbed and beat up by two african americans in the 23rd district. One of the upstanding african american offenders was nabbed thanks to another jogger who followed the oppressed assailants.

Yesterday another upstanding african american held up two people on the 500 block of west belmont in broad daylight with a black plastic gun!!!! Yes he too was caught! What the f&%* is going on? Who do these people think they are? I am glad that citizens are vigiliant and willing to come forward and help one another. i am glad that there ae still people out there that care and are willing to work with the police to catch these sons of bitches.

This is an issue that wrecks the inner core of a department made up of many different races of people.

Failure to see offenders as CRIMINALS, instead of by what color they may be, will continue to cause friction between members, create less effective TEAM policing, and continue to alienate the community(MEANING ONE) that this department is meant to serve.

I really wish that this person, along with any like-minded individuals on this department, would gather together, and run, or better yet, crawl slowly back and forth across the Dan Ryan expressway, wearing all black clothing, at approximately 9PM on a Friday night.

If that happened, we would lose a majority of our members....not to mention, most of our "bosses."

True to a certain point, the media will not report this and they will not mention the race of the offenders, so the only way to point this out is by telling the race of the individual. Also there is a majority of black Police Officers and has been coorobatated to a certain extent by Starks in his comments to the city council that he was only in his position to help blacks. Many of these Officers could care less about non African victims and there are no repurcussions for those acts.

The apple fell real close to the tree here. His Dad was an Inspector back in the 70's and 80's. He was the kind of guy who walked into the 009th District and asked if we could help him out with his "mover" for the day. We would give him a minor infraction like a bond slip not dated or something like that and he would leave. He never looked for anyway to jam up a copper. Good guy all and all and his kid is following in the footsteps.

I'll do that when the da mayor, the media and the public admits that when one cop goes bad it's just one cop and not ALL COPS.
