What do you expect from such an asshole that says there is no money for pot holes yet he's paving a street for the Olympic Committee to drive down on their next visit. He could care less about the police and should you end up being killed in the line of duty, do you think he cares?????

Seriously, we have to start hitting Daley where it hurts. With all the focus on the Olympic bid we need to have a protest where the Olympic pick committee visits next. Or instead of a no-confidence vote for Weis how about a no-confidence vote that the City will be able to provide enough safety to visiting athletes and spectators. Now THAT would get some publicity if the FOP publicly expressed that with the current level of manpower we could not adequately ensure safety for the projected crowds.

Come on, lets play hardball.

Look you people have the city by the balls although sometimes I think your too stupid to realize it.

During the early 70's when we were trying to have a collective bargaining rep. we went on a ticket blitz. Everyone poo pooed the idea. By the end of the 3rd day all the bosses were inspecting your ticket books to see if the citations were being written on your beat. My point is that you have so much more power now. Go on a ticket strike, except in those areas "where courtesies are give, i.e. certain restaurants, churches, political gatherings, if you don't wake up your going to let this asshole shit all over you. Fuck him and the people he's with.

Just remember, that due to inflation, a zero percent increase is actually a pay CUT. That is, today's dollars are worth less in terms of what they can buy due to price increases.

Classic Daley, release the information late Friday or early Saturday and hope that the news gets buried over the weekend and nobody hears about it. The FOP should really think about trying to get a group together for informational picketing while the IOC is in town next month.

Maybe arbitration is the only means by which to compel this den of liars, thieves and scallywags to open up their books and prove the city's 'inability to pay' isn't purely a case of 'unavailability of funds due to widespread theft by deceptions'.

Why doesn't the city just get rid of CPD all together and hire security officers? Its pretty clear the City of Chicago does not want the CPD to be proactive now days anyway. The City will generate revenue by writing tickets and totally eliminate court time these officers get when making an arrest beacuse there won't be any arrests.
The City can pay these security guards $10.00 an hour. They can also totally eliminate police vehicles and put everyone on foot to write tickets. This City and its tax payers do not like the CPD to get new vehicles anyway. The City can also push out the FOP, since their will be no police officers anyway. The City of Chicago and its citizens do not want police officers to have a salary or a raise anyway so who needs the FOP? Totally privatize!!!! THATS THE TICKET. Who cares if the gang bangers are out there and the CPD is down thousands of officers. The City can eliminate all its officers. They will save money by hiring $10.00 hour security officers who only carry pepper spray and an ink pen. Meanwhile your taxes will keep going up to pay for the security guards $1000.00 ink pens that the city only pays a quarter for. THATS THE CHICAGO WAY!!!

If this is true then all bets are off. The FOP should move to take our contract to arbitration as well as publicly criticizing the Mayor. Supposedly there was a deal in place between the Union and the City not to discuss the contract publicly, yet every chance the City has it takes a swipe at us. The public should be made aware that there are nowhere near the number of sworn officers that the City claims there are (Why doesn't the FOP publish the true number or file to obtain it under the Freedom of Information Act, the fact that the radios often don't work, the computers often don't work, that the squad cars are falling apart, that the vaunted cameras often don't work. That the reason their cars are being damaged due to potholes,that their taxes are sky high is so that the Mayor can sink all the City money into his dream of the Olympics where you can bet all his friends and relatives are just waiting to make fortunes while we get stuck with the tab. Sorry about the runon sentence, I was on a roll. The Mayor hates us an I for one surely hate him. My only hope is that he either dies while I'm alive so I can go piss on his shanty Irish grave or that he goes to prison. Thanks for letting me vent

It's time to realize that this mayor has to go! He is a reason for term limits! Mr. Mayor you are turning Chicago into Detroit real fast. Why you treat your police department like shit is hard to understand. We need the police to be happy and feel energized, so we can all live safely. You and the Aldermen get heafty raises constantly why can't you give them one. Please just be fair to them. It's amazing how hard people will work if they're happy.

The news never gets the story right or fails to leave things out. They need to report that officers do not reach their top pay until their 25th year. They way they wrote it makes it look like we are making the $78,000 early on. Reaching top pay in the 25th year is unheard of in almost every industry. Most police departments reach their top pay by their 10th year.

P.S. The last of morale just got flushed down the toliet!

The raise that he pulled off the table is just over 3 percent a year, not including the increased Medical, that will take much of that back. The cost of living in Chicago has got to be 4 to 5 percent at least...what the hell is going on? We are taxed to death by Daley, Stroger and now Quinn...something needs to be done. Some type of UNIFIED action. Seriously, maybe a Blue Flu day in May? Seriously!!!

OAKLAND, Calif. -- Two Oakland police officers were shot this afternoon near 74th and MacArthur avenues, according to Oakland Fire Department spokesman David Brue. The shooting reportedly took place during a traffic stop.

The officers were taken to Highland Hospital in Oakland. Their names and medical conditions were not immediately known.

A manhunt is under way and dozens of Oakland police, California Highway Patrol officers and Alameda County sheriff deputies were roping off streets looking for the suspect.

So his boyfriends can steal over and over and now he can't find money for our raise. His family can steal our pension money but he can's give any to us in the form of a decent raise. Mr. Mayor, how much do you, your family and friends have to steal to satisfy your piggish hunger for money.

There's one reason and one reason only Daley pulled the offer: The city is broke and getting worse. This "recession" we're all talking about is really a Depression. We will not have public support for our contract woes. By 2010, I believe there will be civil disturbances up the kazoo in this country. I would like a pay raise, but right now I'm happy I have a paycheck. It's moments like this that I hate Daley, Madigan and the rest of the corrupt scum we call "elected officials"; these assholes really fucked up this country.

Hey Ruth,
you got a fridge and microwave in your office = you be the first to give the money back to the city, then maybe we might respect you and your bs rules.

Also, if you are so worried about theft of city money for fridges and microwaves how about you look into the theft of thousands of dollars by your admin. mgr. A.C-H?
She's been stealing from the city for years.

WTF is going on at the academy, aside from the fact barely any recruits are being hired and trained? Is there some sort of mass exodus from there? Is there anyone left there that knows what they are doing? Judging from these comments the new PPO's are going to suck more than usual.

***********************************Your right the country is in a depression. However Daley wants the Olympics! He has the money from the Skyway, Parking meters, parking garages and Midway Airport. The police are his least favorite people because he is a CRIMINAL! I'll show up for work when scheduled, but fuck anything proactive. Little Jody got 300K, Luberman got his money, the alderthieves got paid as did the teachers. So if I don't get paid (actually a pay cut) I'll just do less work.
I would like to thank the mayor, Jody, the aldermen and Todd Stroker FOR FUCKING UP WHAT ONCE WAS A WORLD CLASS CITY!!!! GOD I HOPE YOU ALL GO TO JAIL!

KEEP IN MIND HOW THIS MAN THINKS, THAT IS WHY WE HAVE THESE RENT-A-COPS.

THEIR COMPANIES WILL BE MAKING CONTRIBUTIONS TO THE DEMOCRATIC PARTY OF COOK COUNTY, WHERE AS FOP DOES NOT.

Posted Earlier, Worth Repeating

About 12 or 13 years ago, the Chicago Sun-Times ran a series in the Sunday editions where the readers would write in questions for famous people. The second in the series was Richard M. Daley. It was during contract negotiations and after the city council voted the mayor and themselves hefty raises.

One of the questions was, “How can the mayor get a 35% pay raise and the aldermen get a 30% pay raise and you only offer the firefighters and police officers a 2 ½ % pay raise.”

The mayor’s response, “I am the mayor of a great city and the aldermen are the legislators of a great city. I am very proud of the salary that I make. If this guy or anyone else doesn’t like what we are offering he can quit. We had 40,000 sign up
to take the firefighters test and he can be easily replaced.”

This is what we are up against, the mentality of the mayor.

A dispatcher with the Oakland police department says two police officers were shot in the 7600 block of MacArthur Boulevard just after 1 p.m. Saturday.

Police sources tell NBC Bay Area the injuries to the officers are very serious.

A huge police presence swarmed the scene, including members of the Oakland police department, the Alameda County Sheriff's Department, the CHP and a SWAT team as they search for the shooter.

The Oakland police helicopter also flew overheard.

Police on the scene told reporters it started as a traffic stop by two Oakland officers on motorcycles. They say the driver got out of his car, shot the two officers and then ran away.

KCBS says police may have been searching for two suspects. .

Then, just after 3 p.m., at 73rd and Hillside one of the suspects was discovered. A shoot-out followed with two additional officers being hit by gunfire.

The suspect was also hit.

Many streets near the Eastmont Town Center were closed including busy 74th Ave.

The first injured officers were taken to Highland Hospital. Just after 4 p.m. the coroner was called to Highland, although it was not immediately confirmed it was for one of the officers.

It was not immediately clear where the two additional officers were taken. Highland is a trauma center.

Updates here throughout the night. NBC Bay Area will also have a series of live reports at 5 p.m. and 6 p.m.

He is acting as if 16% over 5 years was some great fucking gift! You factor in a certain raise in medical responsibility and the raise just went to zero! Now factor in inflation/cost of living increase and we actually get a pay cut at 16% over 5 years! FUCK THAT! No one went into this job to make a million dollars a year, and for that guarantee, we are afforded certain ther guarantees... like the guarantee to a cost of living raise, guaranteed medical coverage, and guaranteed pension... When times were good, and boy were they REALLY good up until about a year ago, I dont seem to recall the city saying "hey, times are good, we are not only going to give you your raise, but we are going to throw in a little more!" Nor do I remember during thsoe times the city saying "times are good, here is a $3000 Christmas bonus for a job well done!" This is a slap in every officer's face! FUCK THAT STUTTERING PRICK!!!

Once again the mayor will cry poor like he always does, but what about all that money Richie? The stimulus, the privatization of the Skyway, Midway, and the parking meters. We have been getting 16% over 4 years the last decade..now you want 16.1% over 5 years..GO FUCK YOURSELF..I would rather see lack of contract continue..

Crime is up..Homicides are up..Bank Robberies Up...Morale is down..number of arrests are down..and tickets are down..which equals revenue DOWN.

Time for FOP to take it public..like the mayor said if I am the mayor of one of the largest cities in the country I need to be paid like it..well we are the second largest police force in the country (well that's what we are according to Jody's number)..Pay us like it!!!!

EASY WAYS TO IMPROVE MORALE

Remove Weis

Remove Merit promotions

Supervise all equally (No Favorites)

Open up all positions to bid

Give us a fair contract (comparable to other departments the same size)

Support the police by fighting some damn cases in court, and quit settling because it is cheaper..it makes us look bad.


And FOP...if you do not want to fight for us, then let us know so we can hire a lawyer skilled in labor negotiations with NO TIES to the CITY OF CHICAGO, who will fight for us...IF YOU HAVEN'T HEARD in the new work schedule, your furloughs get reverted to HOURS....NOT DAYS, and you lose days off..AND have to put in time due slips...the FOP says you get extra time on the holidays..Yes we do, but IT IS OUR TIME DUMBASS, WHY WOULD I WANT TO USE IT TO MAKE UP FOR MY FURLO???

Mr. Mayor,
I will sacrifice 100% of any raise on one condition.....Let me live wherever I choose. My child's classroom is a trailer(annex) which itslef along with the school is overcrowded. I can't get my child in a Day Camp because there are limited spots available which fill up in under a minute, because the parks by my home are under-funded. The street in front of my house is a joke, it looks like it was hit by a Daisy-Cutter, several calls to 311 and nothing. If you can't provide employees with simple adequate city services, then maybe it's time to let your employees choose a city/town that can!

THis whole thing is just retailiation for the FOP's vote of NO CONFIDENCE against J-FED. Daley is just attempting to negotiate the contract in the Media.

Will FOP now say "Please Please Please reconsider...We will take your 16% and you can forget the retro"???

FOP you have made the King/Furor/Chairman of the Democratic Republic of Chicago angry.

Arbitration will lead to what?? ZIP cause the city is gonna cry poor. Bringing up the billions from Skyway, Midway, Parking Meters, Downtown parking garages will not be allowed cause the whole process is controlled by Daley and his community organizer in D.C.

Can see the a distinct possibility of dramatic changes to my families current lifestyle.

Seriously, we have to start hitting Daley where it hurts. With all the focus on the Olympic bid we need to have a protest where the Olympic pick committee visits next. Or instead of a no-confidence vote for Weis how about a no-confidence vote that the City will be able to provide enough safety to visiting athletes and spectators. Now THAT would get some publicity if the FOP publicly expressed that with the current level of manpower we could not adequately ensure safety for the projected crowds.

Come on, lets play hardball.

WOULD THIS BE A VIOLATION OF THE CONTRACT? OR IS THIS COVERED UNDER THE 1ST AMENDMENT RIGHT TO FREE SPEECH IF THOSE IN ATTENDANCE AT A PROTEST ARE OFF DUTY??

Simply amazing! How is it that other big cities New York and LA can hire people in 3-7 months but Chicago takes 2+ years? NYPD using stimulus money to hire 4000+ cops in the next 4 years, while Chicago is using stimulus money to buy cameras that dont work, not to mention contracting out private security companies. What a joke!

http://www.nydailynews.com/ny_local/...d_nearly_.html

More than 3,900 new police officers could soon be working in New York City, thanks to extra federal funding.

Approximately 400 cops could be hired in the next few months as part of the $1 billion set aside for new police officers in President Obama's economic stimulus package, Rep. Anthony Weiner said yesterday.

The proposed Obama budget also includes federal funding for an additional 3,500 cops the city could hire over the next four years.

The federal government would pick up 75% of the funding for those new hires as part of the Community Oriented Policing Services (COPS) program.

"Our safety challenges can't take a backseat to our economic ones," said Weiner (D-Brooklyn, Queens).

"The COPS program is a proven winner, cutting crime and making neighborhoods safe in New York City."

The extra funds could offset last month's news that the NYPD was being forced by the city's fiscal crisis to cancel its 2010 rookie class, eliminating 1,000 positions

4 OAKLAND COPS SLAIN

FOUR (4) Oakland police officers were murdered by a gunman in two incidents this afternoon in East Oakland.

The lone gunman, also now deceased, first shot two officers in a traffic stop. The gunman fled on foot. The neighborhood was sealed off to traffic for the ensuing manhunt for the cop killer.

He was later located on a 9-1-1 tip barricaded in a nearby location. Two SWAT officers and the gunman were killed in the last gun battle.

For latest developments, go to: www.SFGate.com

Excluding the murders of police officers in NYC on 9/11, this quadruple homicide of police officers is unprecedented in modern time in the U.S.A.

Sadly we're led by a union manned by cowards. Not one of them was the was the working police in recent years. Does anyone believe for a second that any FOP leadership cares in the slightest about the rank and file?
They're getting paid by both the department and the union (money from our dues).
They get to spend evenings, weekends and holidays with their families.
And just about all of them has some gig lined up for when they're done leeching off us. None are going back to police work after their FOP stint.
Call them about the city taking your health deductions out after taxes and you'll get told by Dougherty that "It's just pennies."
The only time they take any real stand is when it involves them. Like when they were actually expected to qualify with their weapons.
The FOP is the CPD's version of AIG executives.

DALEY says thier is no money but a quick look shows that thier are hundreds of millions in TIF slush funds from all over the city. TIF funds are property taxes that have been diverted to be used by Daley to give handouts to his developer friends. These propert taxes are supposed to be used to pay for city services like schools, and streets repairs, and Police services. so next time a young chicago public schools honor roll student dies remember Daley took the money that was supposed to hire police and gave it to a developer friend to build condos no one is buying and Offices (block 37) that no one will occupy.

The public needs to know that the mayor is destroying the city to get the olympics and it's only for his legacy and his cronies to get rich on. The public needs to know about all the spending and corrupt contracts. Where's the money? He sold the Sky Way! He sold the parking meters! He sold Midway! The police aren't asking for much, just a normal cost of living wage. The mayor is hiding all the money and paving a park just to show the olympic committee. He is forgetting about the rest of the city. We will be the next East St. Louis under Daley.

Daley got 1 billion for the sale of the parking meters. The alderman say they have 900 million in their TIFF slush fund. Daley has 500 million in his rain day fund and he put up a 500 million bond for the Olympic bid. That’s 2.9 billion without the procedes of the sale of Midway. The city has already allotted a 16 % raise for the police. Last year the cost of living for Chicago went up 5.6% and the aldermen and the mayor took a 6.5% raise. If the city wants to roll the dice at arbitration they could lose big time.

The City settled with the other unions, only police and fire are left. Does anyone actually believe that an arbitrator would allow 30 unions to get raises and then tell police and fire that there is no money for you?

All Daley wants is to take your attention off of Al Sanchez, Bill Daley, Victor Reyes and his wife, Degnan, Donovan, Joyce and the Mayor’s extended family and himself. Remember that the mayors nephew is under investigation by the IG for loans from the Police Pension Fund! Kiss the Olympics good bye. The city is running third out of the four contenders for 2016. The police will picket the IDOC now and Daley will blame the police for Chicago not being picked.

There's one reason and one reason only Daley pulled the offer: The city is broke and getting worse. This "recession" we're all talking about is really a Depression. We will not have public support for our contract woes. By 2010, I believe there will be civil disturbances up the kazoo in this country. I would like a pay raise, but right now I'm happy I have a paycheck. It's moments like this that I hate Daley, Madigan and the rest of the corrupt scum we call "elected officials"; these assholes really fucked up this country.

A city should value its teachers and its public safety officers, above all else. Without education, the next generation is lost. Without public safety personnel, the line between civility and chaos disappears.

Wrong!

The city claims a $200 million deficit, when the city is really flush with cash after the sale of the skyway and parking meters.

The mayor is holding that money for Olympic reserves. The large cash deposit is required to hold the games since the US government does not guarantee financing like other countries.

The mayor holds this money as if it is his private Olympic account, but this is the taxpayers' money.

The city claims a deficit as a means of increasing taxes and fees. Those taxes are indirectly financing the Olympic bid, as the mayor holds large cash reserves away from the taxpayers in the hope that he can give this money to his friends to construct the Olympic games.

The city sold 100 years of taxpayer earnings. Make no mistake. There is money available for police pay raises.

Remember city council gave themselves a 6% percent a year raise. Then gave there staff a5% a year raise. the carpenters were given prevailing wage increases over 4% a year.So were the electricans, the laborers, and the streets and san teamsters all more than 4% a year. The teachers recieved over 4% a year so did CTA. All recieved more money and did not have to wait one day after thier old contracts expired. I will write reports and take appropriate police action when it is neccasary but fuck you daley and fuck you city council. FOP HAD BETTER NOT SETTLE FOR A CENT LESS THAN 4.2%-4.5% A YEAR. AND NO GIVE BACKS ON MEDICAL.

Um, I hate to break it to you, but the 1.5% increase you are speaking of is really a 50% increase in the tax rate.(3% to 4 1/2%)

Just like the license plates are gonna go up from 78 dollars to 98 dollars, is just short of a 25% increase.

And don't forget, this is NOW, all at once, not like your 16.5% raise was going to be over 5 years.

I think its bullshit that its going on 2 yrs to get this contract. I dont think it should be called a contract, they should call it an "agreement" the whole point to having a contract is that once its expired the previous contract is void. With that, everything written on the previous contract cannot be enforced. Residency, no strike clause. etc etc. I know there is a rule that states that until the new contract is agreed upon, the old EXPIRED contract is the written rules. that is non-sense. As far as doing anything for this city...whats the point? they dont give a shit about you, why should we give a shit about them. Just show up for work on time and them go home on time. thats about it. And..that whole private security thing is some funny shit. half of those shitbirds have IR # themselves and the other half have either a suspended or revoked DL.

Round II

The Grievance is a wonderful thing....

There are sooooo many things that can be legitimately grieved but nobody does.....maybe we don't want to be individually scrutinized out of retaliation for grieving something, maybe we don't want the "boss" to assign us to some BS every night.....Well, it's time to make the city catch up for their decades of neglect and our silence. I ask that our district union reps make a detailed list of all things that represent legit grievances. Prior to submitting the grievance, inform all members of that district/unit.......
If/when this is done, I ask that ALL members of those districts/units sign off on the grievances.....

Individually they can make our day shit.....United, we can take them down!!!!!

We've also deleted comments that run on and on and on for a thousand words, ones that are completely and provably wrong, and ones that are obviously posted one after the other in a 5 minutes span by someone who doesn't know how to take off the CAPS lock.

We're pretty sure you ran afoul of at least one or more of these rules. Try harder to comply and make sense and you might have a decent shot at being published.

You truly do have the patience of a saint.

Thanks for all dedicated work here on this blog. If people are so disgusted, they can rant and sprew by starting their own blogs.

You ALL be safe out there.

BTW, I'm really sorry you all got screwed over.

"The people don't care if we don't write parkers and movers. It does'nt hurt them. We should do the opposite, write every parker or mover you see. Much more dramatic effect on the citizens of this city.

The people appreciate the absence of having their pockets picked.

That 'much more dramatic effect' is achieved by those natural activities that the savages will reliably engage in, if left to their own devices.


The only ones calling for ticket blitzes are city hall suck asses.

To satisfy these desperate folks, blitz the ghettos. Plenty of activity, yet zero revenue.

In 1972 and 73, we were in a deep recession. Pres Nixon, froze federal salaries. Old man Daley said "If it's good enough for the feds, its good enough for me" We went two years without a raise Made the same salary, 71, 72, 73. Be very careful, my young friends

Yeah, no raise, but how much were you stealing?

The check-off sheet in every district should be blank every night. No parkers, no CTA checks, nothing.
I'm just sayin'

I would assume that you have more than 10 years on the job and have a secured bid spot on the watch. But, how about us who are have less than 10 years and desperately trying to get the watch we need for family reasons?
I do my activities not to make my Supervisors happy, but, for myself and my family. I do believe that Watch Commanders do review your monthly activities.
One of the problem in this Department is there are too many fucking whiners. I'm just thankful that I still have a job, receiving my checks every two weeks, able to provide for my family, and a roof over my head.

You can get the watch you want and probably furlough too, just readjust where you work, go to a district where your seniority can get you what you need. As your seniority moves you up, move over to a more desirable district. That is how that seniority thing works.

So you think the solution to your perceived problems is to piss off the citizens at large?

Chances are that will not garner you a whole lot of public support.

I don't have a whole lot of good answers for just how you can go about improving the level of general public support for police. In a city as corrupt as Chicago, no one trusts city government, and the CPD is after all, just another city agency, and one that has a somewhat sordid history.

It doen't really matter much that most Chicago cops are probably decent people. The perception is somewhat different from the outside looking in. People look at the corrupt nature of Chicago government at all levels, and just figure the police department is no different.

No offense but many people these days are going without raises. Some are taking pay cuts as part of their jobs. Sorry that you have to suffer like everyone else.

I love that idea of constant sirens and M-80's at the Olympic Event. Now wouldnt it be a shame if for some unknown reason I just couldnt seem to get the "dump gate" on my Garbage truck to close? I HATE when that happens. Or better yet if the spinklers "suddenly" went on near the podium. Wouldnt matter the water would run right off that Little Fat Greasy bastard.Another Idea is to lace the area with Seagull Food for a week prior to the event.That way the nice birds can have a stuttering target to shit on JUST LIKE HE SHITS ON US......

To the Sun-Times reporters who troll this site...

Please go back in your files, find this and republish it before you paper goes under,

About 12 or 13 years ago, the Chicago Sun-Times ran a series in the Sunday editions where the readers would write in questions for famous people. The second in the series was Richard M. Daley. It was during contract negotiations and after the city council voted the mayor and themselves hefty raises.

One of the questions was, “How can the mayor get a 35% pay raise and the aldermen get a 30% pay raise and you only offer the firefighters and police officers a 2 ½ % pay raise.”

The mayor’s response, “I am the mayor of a great city and the aldermen are the legislators of a great city. I am very proud of the salary that I make. If this guy or anyone else doesn’t like what we are offering he can quit. We had 40,000 sign up
to take the firefighters test and he can be easily replaced.”

And make a big deal out of Chicago being dead LAST on the Olympic Committee's list, (not enough bribes), and how much we are being screwed.
