Only in Chicago

  • In what squeaky-clean city would a fire department lieutenant known as "Matches," convicted of multiple arsons—including one sparked at an elementary school—feel that he's still entitled to his taxpayer-funded pension of $50,000 per year?

    Oh, don't pretend you don't know the city.
Kass has some fun with this one. Read the whole thing.

His brother "Quarters" back in the day use to work with Ike Carouthers in streets and sanatation, the same one who is the Alderman in charge of what, if you guessed the police and fire board you know who the players are,(Ikes brother made Lt the last go around. Explains alot about how things get done in the city.

SCC, I believe the hatred and discontent directed at our Superintendent is misguided. Supt Weis came on board and made quite a few rocommendations. Many which were embraced by the rank and file. New squads, new computers, new weapons, and improved manpower to name a few. His ideas were noble and had the best interest of the blue in mind. I know he stumbled with the Cozzi issue, but put that aside for a second. Lets look at the real issue. After making several suggestions that would not only improve the function of the CPD but also the morale, Weis too got it stuck in his rear. The BS aldercreatures systematically turned down each and every request he made! They claimed budget issues, but the real fact of the matter is the "reverends" that run around like chickens with heads cut off LOVE to see us fail. Jody W was never given a fair shake at this. The aldercreatures that make the most noise handcuffed our superintendent from the get go. This was a witch hunt from the beginning. Now, with his failure, they can say "see, it's not our drug dealing gang banging constituents that are the problem, it's the police." Even with bringing in an outsider, they still failed us! When we all know that is not true. But when Weis resigns in 6 months, and who can blame him, the "reverends" will have all the ammo they need. Thay will lobby for one of their own to take over, and then shit will hit the fan for us! Weis is not the problem, the aldercreatures are! And not even all of them, just the loud mouth, "I deserve the world even though I am part of the problem" west/south side cock roaches! Trust me when I say when Weis leaves, this will only get worse! The next Rev/Supt will not hold open forums... the next Rev/Supt will not beg for better resources, the next Rev/Supt will fire coppers after a single allegation and there will be nothing we can do about it! Supt Weis was brought in as a last resort... after him, the brothers will get their way! Be careful what you wish for, guys, you may just get it! Embrace Weis, as the nect option will be very very scary!

"'The hotter it got, the more it would burn,' Matches said simply.

Well, it's nice that he learned something on the job.

He was also asked if he had learned anything on the job about arsonists.

'Yes,' said Matches. 'That there are arsonists out there, and that they do start fires.'"

Why of course he deserved a merit promotion. Just look at his extensive firefighting knowledge.

The joke about the MERIT promotion that he took was. That after his arrest 1 of the TV stations went to the retired Dept Fire Comm who had nominated him. When asked how he was nominatted he said that he didn't even know the guy. When the reporter said the he was the one that nominatted him, the retired DFC said that I was told to do it by someone over the phone.
That truely is the way Chicago works.

Dear SCC,
Can we get a running thread on the side about how the new schedules are working out? Here and there you'll see an OT comment in one of the threads but it would be nice if we could go directly to an ongoing thread and see how these things are working out. Just a thought. I would love to have a new schedule. I would take absolutely any of the new schedules over what we have now. The 6-2 just sucks beyond belief.

------------------

Wrong.

JPW was hired to "Cozzi-ize" alot more of us. Following SOS, Jeff Tap, and Abbate the target was on us. The City council had all the money in the world to install cameras and gps.

What They failed to realize is that cops are not stupid. Once we realized that the target was now us, we hit the dirt. Tickets and arrests are down and shootings and murders are up.

They wanted to kill the "Being the Police is a Lifesyte". A life style that demanded that **I am badder than thet baddest bad ass out there**. This Lifestyle demanded that we do not back down from anyone! Not from some punk ass yuppies in a bar or that I want another beer, because I said so. (yes, at times prudence was lost.) But it kept the neighborhoods safe and the killings down. Chicago had never sent a Chihuahua to tell the Rott to pipe down.

Now that They killed the Lifestyle, being the CPD is just a job. Gangbangers hanging out infront of your building? Oh well, my camera shows them playing tiddlywinks when I drive by. Dudes got a gun in that car? Oh well, he's got a license and insurance and he hid it from view. You're a couple from Germany visiting that just got your ass kicked by a pack of roving Democratic "youths"? Oh well, did you learn your lesson? If this is just a job then I will not lose my job inorder to do my job.

Off topic but just as important!

The more you write the higher the ratings, also the inverse effect!

Does this sound like a Quota system, SCC?

How about a thread on this! Bosses are shitting in their pants over revenue activities in their districts! That's why the demand for numbers/revenue activities!

It's a fact and supervisors are now being trained on the new rating/Quota system in I-CLEAR!

$4 Billion/50 is $80 million a state. Chicago, the biggest city in the state, should get a good share of that. Take out Daley's cut and maybe there'll be the $10 million the city was saving by slashing hiring. Or maybe I'm wrong and the money will go to buy flower pots and GPS equipment.

These comments brought to you Sgt. Ray of Supt.'s Policy Group.

I have to agree with you poster. I have always made a point to try and stay positive, but this idiot stood in front of all the Exempts today and totally disgraced the department again. He referenced SCC and then said it is sad how the Assistant Superintendent Beatrice Cuello is being unjustly targeted. Give me a fucking break asshole!!!!! I wish I was there, I would have stood up and said, what the fuck??? You Bosses that are the fucking police, what are you thinking?

The Mayor just launched, not even a month ago, a campaign to further hold landlords accountable. This idiot headed the fucking unit, not worked in it, she headed it. Now she is 3rd in Command and now she is not accountable to what is done on her property but she has sanctioned the investigation of hundreds of home owners?

Superintendent, I am very respectful of you and I never join in any of the BS conversations that I am privied to since I love to hang out with my brothers and sisters in blue and white, but this takes the fucking cake. You are a complete idiot and a hypocrite. I am a PO and a real estate attorney on the side, guess why, because having a family of 4, I need the additional income, so I am utilizing my degree. Now, I will be representing the landlords who were not aware of criminal activity, especially high powered guns and large amounts of drugs being on the premises. I will fight the city who has targeted them and I will make sure I use your statement each and every time to get them off and to recoup their fines!

You surpass the term stupid idiot. You put Beavis and Buthead to shame, though one of them could be your twin!

Incompetency abounds in the CPD and FOP! These are dark days in the history of the Chicago Police Dept due to poor command selection that starts at the top! The Cranium allowed this to happen so Daley is to blame for the chaos and confusion that will continue as long as he remains the "TOP COP!" FOP sits quietly as Rome burns telling all of us to "remain calm!" FOP realizes that we all have a very short memory so as soon as they get "some" money in our pockets we will all "quiet down!" This blog is great but as you see, we our showing our cards, weaknesses, strengths, and displaying our own silly individual needs like the 10 hour day which really eliminates midnights and will help the city explain to the public the reason they do not have to hire more police! But whats done is done so we will stick together as best we can, and "never let them see you sweat or blink!" Isn't it funny that those old "asshole" bosses don't look so bad now? The city hands these exempt stars out like bubble gum now with no regard to common sense! JW just sits and does what he's told and watches his direct deposit grow and grow!

He came in 2hrs late and had a bfw issued later recalled.He was charged with impersonating a P.O.They said was wearing a bulletproof vest, driving a fake police car with lights & siren the whole getup.Maybe it was his side job,don't they all have 2 jobs...judge asked him if he was on duty(he answered no)judge yelled next time you come in here you better not have that uniform on it will have on bearing on my ruling..

While I'm on a roll, you also forget the we Sgt's also have no contract.

Fuck you, you sanctimonious piece of shit! THE REASON YOU DONT HAVE A CONTRACT IS BECAUSE YOU HAVE A ME TOO CLAUSE WITH US, AND YOU PRICK WHITE SHIRTS GET WHATEVER WE GET, PLUS WHATEVER YOU GET!!! No one, and I mean NO ONE, feels sorry for your stupid ass! You probably make around 100K a year to ride around and do shit! Your only work consists of when we get written up and that scam you and the other cry baby sgts have with sending your report in at the end of the night!

Its not funny reading about "Quarters Boyle" and his brother if nothing is ever done to them! How can you steal millions of dollars in quarters (is that really true?) go to jail for a few years, (was he ever ordered to pay it back?) get hired by the city of Chicago, mess up again, and now his brother is scamming to get a pension! No one ever can find out the "Whole story!" Why is that? I love John Kass but all he and the rest of us ever do is just laugh, put the paper down and talk about it! The citizens of Chicago are the ones the Boyles are laughing at every day!

Bravo, 12:23.

Need to dig my copy out of the garage attic; it's been a good 25 years.

From Wikipedia:

"Rand's heroes must continually fight against the "parasites", "looters", and "moochers" of the society surrounding them.

The looters are those who confiscate others' earnings "at the point of a gun" —often because they are government officials, and thus their demands are backed by the threat of force. Some looters are following the policies of the government, such as the officials who confiscate one state's seed grain to feed the starving citizens of another state; others are exploiting those policies, such as the railroad regulator who illegally sells the railroad's supplies on the side. The common factor is that both use force to take property from the people who produced or earned it, and both are ultimately destructive.

The moochers are those who demand others' earnings because they claim to be needy and unable to earn themselves. Even as they beg for their help, however, they curse the people who make that help possible, because they hate the talented for having the talent they don't possess. Although the moochers seem benign at first glance, they are portrayed as more destructive than the looters—they destroy the productive through guilt and often motivate the "lawful" looting performed by governments."


Sound familiar, anyone?

Let's hope the Fire Deparment is doing their job and working to fire this nut job. I believe any good copper in the courtroom would be an ideal witness to the violation of wearing his uniform as a defendant.

Mayor Daley said that he believes everyone deserves a second chance.
That is why he hired John in the streets and sanatation dept.
It's a shame things did not work out.
That does not mean "His Honor's" heart was not in the right place.
