B.S. Interview

It's amazing. When J-Fed talks, you can't even see Daley's lips moving.

All in all, his interview with Carol Marin was a flop and a repeat of everything we've seen before. He talks up what Shortshanks wants in terms of the big "crime is down" story to get the Olympics interested in Chicago. Then he dances around and doesn't answer the other questions that might not mean much to the public, but mean a whole lot to the people he's attempting to "lead."
  • J-Fed talks up a 21% drop in homicides. After the coldest winter in a decade. But it's all wine and roses where J-Fed comes from. Aggravated Batteries with handguns are up over 100 even in the cold. A few warm days and we could manage to catch up really quick. Don't count chickens before they're hatched.

  • J-Fed says that with good equipment, good training and leadership by example, there is no morale problem. Last time we checked, there were still no pool cars citywide, Tahoes came two at a time then stopped and have to be downed at 3,000 miles for a transmission problem that ought to be the subject of an investigative report, we can't send anyone to training because we have no manpower to spare, and our leadership consists of one of the more amusing selections of buffoons outside of a carnival.

  • J-Fed bases his judgement of morale being fine by the fact that officers are still responding to calls and 10-1's, joking and in good spirits. Leaving aside the fact that we're required to go to jobs (it's in the description), everyone responds to 10-1's if they know what's good for them. That could be any one if us on the other end of that radio one day and you better believe we're going to be trusting that everyone shows up. It's what you're supposed to do and has nothing to do with morale. The joking and good spirits is more a result of everyone letting off a little steam after finding our co-workers in one piece. And the people greeting J-Fed and telling him what a great job he's doing - pure fantasy. It's either (A) cops have fun at his expense or (B) the fine CPD tradition of sucking ass. Look what happened to the first three people to smooch up to J-Fed - hello "Policy Group." Of course, at least two of them were mayoral plants, but don't tell J-Fed!

  • And finally, "merit" promotions. We called that one right on the money. J-Fed goes on and on about how merit is a badge of honor, merit promotions are good, and he lifted the "veil of secrecy" surround who was "merit" and who wasn't. If "merit" is so damn good, why not define it? Give everyone a fair shot at achieving career brownie points so as to have a shot? These were the payoff quotes - "I don't know all the players." "Mayor Daley has never called me regarding any promotion that I've made since I've been here."
Of course he hasn't J-Fed. He's been doing this long before you were here. His fingerprints aren't visible out in the open - he has people for that. He's a puppet master. And guys like you? You don't even see the strings he's pulling. We won't even name names, but you can't seriously think that a largish number of the people you promoted are even remotely qualified for the jobs they're holding?

Evidently, $310,000 per year buys a lot of blindfolds.

SCC: I watched the Carol Marin interview of Weis. It was very disappointing and a waste of my time. Marin has the ability to conduct an interview like a rabid pit bull, ask Todd Stroger. He found that out last week on "Chicago Tonight".

Weis was handled with kid gloves. And I have to ask Carol marin one question, "Why?".

I watched the interview of J Fed by Carol Marin and it was ridiculous. This whole city is ridiculous. The only way things will ever change is to vote out all these bastards. Now that will never happen. Why? Because of all of the freebes that people get. All of this is the incumbants way of insaveing people. People are so hoodwinked they don't realize it. It's not freedom it's slavery and people don't even reconize it. The numbers are not there to vote these people out so it dose no good to bitch. Right now there is no answer, let's hope we find one. God Bless America, where ever it is.

I'm sorry but I have to speak out. I am a 20+ year vet of the Chicago Police Dept. Jody, bye far is the worst supe in the dept.

Smoke n' mirrors, dog and pony show; whatever you want to call it. He's your man!

Besides what Jody tells the simpleton, all believing public. morale is at an all time low in 20 years. No contract again and it has NOTHING to do with the economic state we're in right now. This happens everytime our contract is up.

Jody is a head hunter, plain and simple. Wants to fire and hold each officer accountable for bullshit accusations.

No ovetime in patrol BOOOO. Late arrests, intollerable. BOOOO.
No search warrants on Thursdays, Fridays and Saturadays. BOOOO.

Jody says on national radio that Gang Violence and Drug sales have absolutely nothign to do with each other. HOLY SHIT! YOU ARE OFFICIALLY A FULL BLOWN IDIOT!
Gangs, drugs and guns = hand in hand. Always have been, always will. obviously, Jody has absolutely no idea what the fuck he's doing.

Get back to the basics you idiot white shirt pencil pushers..

Let the police be the police.

This city and this dept is fucked.

I have a question for anyone who may have some knowledge of this. Has anyone ever tried to obtain a list of all merit promotions ever made of all ranks from the department? Or does the union have access to the lists of merits? If the union has it, is that something me, as a police officer, can easily obtain? Or are we talking subpoena here no matter who has the years of lists?

I want to see the names of these extraordinary police men and women who must have that something extra to be such great leaders. I only want to seek them out so that I know who my role models should be.

Seriously, is this something anyone has ever tried to obtain before? If not, I'm going to go for it. Thank you.

What it does buy is one of the more amusing selections of buffoon puppets outside of a carnival for the Grand Puppet Master Daley to manipulate to his hearts content.

Am I wrong, or does it appear that the steroid formed cranium of J-Fed is actually beginning to take on the shape of Shortshanks posterior from all the smooching that he's been doing back there ?

Ladies and Gentlemen, Mike Masters! Or maybe Ray Hamilton, we aren't sure which.

More street smarts? Holy shit are you delusional. He grew up in bumblefuck while we grew up in Chicago. He's from a family of businessmen while we can count upwards of 30 cops in our respective families. Put down the pipe dude.
Believe it or not the "Silent majority of the CPD" supports this man.

Right. The good old "silent majority." You're a fucking idiot. That's why morale is in the toilet. Tickets are down thousands. Arrests are down thousands more. His own exempt staff can't believe the crap he's pulling. Did you get the memo where Commanders have to justify on a weekly basis the decline in arrest numbers?You censure out 90 % of the comments because you do not like what copper's are saying.

A complete lie. We censor between 5 and 7% of the comments because they're (A) repetitive, (B) incorrect, (C)ignorant or (D) not germane to the conversation at hand. And we also delete most of the comments that attack us, but we made an exception in your case just to have some fun.When Cline was Supt, you M.F.'ed him to no end.

Wrong. Again. We don't believe we ever mother fucked Cline (we'd have to check the record). We may have mother fucked a few of his dumber decisions (and believe us, there were plenty), but we had no particular animus for the previous Superintendent. So again, you lie. BadlyLastly, K.M.A.

We would, but it's just so big. So massive. So completely and utterly you. We can't tell where you end and your ass begins. You have become a complete and total ass. And a tool for J-Fed.

If you aren't a member of the Policy Group, you're almost there. Be sure to copy and paste your comment so you can tell J-Fed how you defended his honor on the blog and took a tongue lashing for your effort. He might appreciate it seeing as how often he gets lashed here. Then you'll have that in common with your idol along with the giant cranium and complete disconnect from reality.

So, what were you expecting him to say? The sky is falling?

"A few warm days and we could manage to catch up really quick."

So maybe that's possible, but it's not true now.

If homicides are down, they're down, people.



You all know that Jody Weis was brought in to take orders from Daley. So, why is it so outrageous when he does that?

Did anyone actually think that he would have a free hand to take control and run the CPD autonomously from the Mayors' office?

Did anyone actually want a Fed to do that?

Did anyone actually think that he was going to singlehandedly, save the CPD?

If so, you are a bunch of naive humans.



As I see it, Daley brought this guy in for the same reasons he brings everyone else into his administration, to separate and insulate the Mayor's office from the trenches where the actual "dirt" is going on, and to give himself the ability to deny he knew anything about what was going on ala Al Sanchez.

Look, Jody Weis would not have been my choice for head of the CPD either, but DALEY IS THE BAD GUY, not Weis. Jody Weis was a political hire (like all the rest, I might add), who was hung out to dry by the Mayor from day one, and has been little more than a lightning rod for the Mayor for all things Police related ever since.

Don't expect him to stand up and tell the truth. For what? To embarrass the Mayor? How long would anyone last with a job doing that?

Sure, in a perfect world, each candidate for Chicago Police Superintendent would take some time to research and review the job and the situation they are getting themselves into, and say "Are you fucking kidding me?", and remove themselves from consideration. But eventually, someone will take it.

I just don't think that that should automatically make him the bad guy and absolve the Mayor for the way this Department has been allowed to deteriorate. That is nothing short of criminal, and soon, maybe even this summer, Jody Weis will take the fall for the Mayor and walk off into the sunset with his severance package, and a new buffoon will take over the Department. He will then begin carefully rearranging things with his little puppet hands as the strings are pulled from City Hall.

Then you'll have a new target to shoot at, but the same old Mayor and the same old bullshit!

If this list does exist within the Dept. or FOP, then let's have it!

If and when somebody does get this list and forms a Class Action Law case against the City, or anyone else for that matter. Then myself and probably several hundred or a couple of thousand P.O.'s will jump on the band wagon!

It's just a matter of time! They had plenty of time to correct this and making it fair but still choose to continue with the same old stuff taking care of their own!

You would think that they would exhaust the list of all the P.O.'s that tested and passed(and paid to take the exam)before they would take it down just so that they can get their friends and relatives on the fast trac of promotion.

This would have also save the City millions in having to set up this testing again and again!! Why does this sound familar?!

Are you f’n crazy!? This man is a f’n idiot! He has no idea what he is doing. This man has street smarts!? That is why he needs a bodyguard/driver, right? He is so street smart that when he went out to play police and make traffic stops in 007 he ended up getting a couple of CR #’s because he has no idea how to interact with these mutts. By the way, whatever happened to those numbers?

As for the “Silent majority of the CPD”, if you were actually out on the street, in the districts and units you would know that nobody supports this guy. So why don’t you crawl back under J-Puds desk and GFY.

This past weekend I worked in the 5th District. I sat for 4 hours 45 minutes waiting to get my arrestee into the lock-up. What a joke, here is the kicker; the lock-up keepers were as fast as lightening....the problem was there is no watch commander in 5. What a joke I had to wait for the 6th District watch commander to eat his lunch, tour the doc and do whatever. This department is sooooooooooo mismanaged.

I believe J-Fed when he said that no alderman or any one else called him about a merit promotion.

What he failed to be candid about was the duties of his Chief-of-Staff, appointed by Mayor Daley, who handles these calls. Masters takes the calls and then comes in and informs him who is to receive special consideration.

It is well known that J-Fed does not like speaking with anyone!

This message was sent out last month, but here it is again.  The topic will be: "What's the Pension Board Hiding?"
 
Recently, our pension fund has been subpoenaed by the inspector generals office.  They are requesting any and all documents regarding DV Urban Realty.  This is a company that is 51% owned by Allison Davis (a Tony Rezko partner) and Bob Vanecko, the nephew of mayor Daley.  This was a risky real estate fund to develop properties in low income neighborhood.   
 
Our board attorney, David Kugler, has advised the board to not comply with this subpoena, citing jurisdiction.  This is a legal technicality to avoid giving up any information.  I motioned at two consecutive meetings to comply with the subpoena.  Unfortunately my motions have fallen on deaf ears.  The board has refused to comply.  Our board should not do the dirty work of covering up for the mayor's nephew. 
 
Money from this pension fund is derived from over 9% of an officer's annual salary and from taxes that are levied..  Any transaction conducted by the fund should be completely transparent.  Both Officers and Tax payers should be appalled at this. 
 
I urge all officers to forward on this to other officers.  Also, THE NEXT PENSION BOARD MEETING IS APRIL 29TH AT 221 N. LaSALLE 16TH fl at 9:00 a.m.

After watching J-Fed's interview it is quite evident that the man is completely clueless. He is an embarrassment and a complete moron. We need to have a City Wide vote of NO CONFIDENCE to show this goof that the vast majority of the cops on this job have about as much confidence in him as we do in that Pea-Brained Mayor of ours.
His response to the "transparency" of the merit selection process was a complete joke. Four lieutenants in the last promotional list were meritoriously promoted THREE times (detective, sergeant, and lieutenant). If things are so transparent then J-Fed needs to post the resumes and job history of these four individuals to show the entire department just how OUTSTANDING their careers have been. I personally know three of the four and I can tell you right now that most patrolman with ten years or more on this job have done more police work than the three of them combined. So J-Fed, in the immortal words of Jack Nicholson, "Go sell crazy some place else, we're all stocked up here!"

Mr. bad-ass SCC what is your claim to fame. This man, compared to you, had more street smarts when he was 10 y.o.a.

Ladies and Gentlemen, Mike Masters! Or maybe Ray Hamilton, we aren't sure which.

More street smarts? Holy shit are you delusional. He grew up in bumblefuck while we grew up in Chicago. He's from a family of businessmen while we can count upwards of 30 cops in our respective families. Put down the pipe dude.Believe it or not the "Silent majority of the CPD" supports this man.

Right. The good old "silent majority." You're a fucking idiot. That's why morale is in the toilet. Tickets are down thousands. Arrests are down thousands more. His own exempt staff can't believe the crap he's pulling. Did you get the memo where Commanders have to justify on a weekly basis the decline in arrest numbers?You censure out 90 % of the comments because you do not like what copper's are saying.

A complete lie. We censor between 5 and 7% of the comments because they're (A) repetitive, (B) incorrect, (C)ignorant or (D) not germane to the conversation at hand. And we also delete most of the comments that attack us, but we made an exception in your case just to have some fun.When Cline was Supt, you M.F.'ed him to no end.

Wrong. Again. We don't believe we ever mother fucked Cline (we'd have to check the record). We may have mother fucked a few of his dumber decisions (and believe us, there were plenty), but we had no particular animus for the previous Superintendent. So again, you lie. BadlyLastly, K.M.A.

We would, but it's just so big. So massive. So completely and utterly you. We can't tell where you end and your ass begins. You have become a complete and total ass. And a tool for J-Fed.

If you aren't a member of the Policy Group, you're almost there. Be sure to copy and paste your comment so you can tell J-Fed how you defended his honor on the blog and took a tongue lashing for your effort. He might appreciate it seeing as how often he gets lashed here. Then you'll have that in common with your idol along with the giant cranium and complete disconnect from reality.

-----------------------------------
Mr. SCC, What a surprise, you allowed my comments and responded.
For that I respect & thank you.

I read your responce in what I had written and just feel you are wrong. Your opinion counts just like mine. I stand by my comment that the "Silent Majority" of the CPD respects and feel the Supt. is doing a great job.

For all of you that said I was this and that, here are the facts.

Having 29 plus y.o.j., I am not in patrol but a dick, I always was and still am the working police.

For 27 years, I have been in many specialized units, not by clout, but the bosses there wanting me to work for them. I never kissed any bosses asses. I always worked for great bosses and the only thing I did for them is work my ass off and respected them.

So, lastly, what is lacking on the CPD today... Coppers not knowing the meaning of being loyal to their bosses.

May God bless you and keep you all safe comrades.

Loyalty is a two way street friend. The so-called "silent majority" is loyal to bosses who earn it - look at the Farrell post. A few of us here were lucky enough to work with him and appreciate what he was.

Unfortunately, he's a dying breed. Perhaps the last of the breed. J-Fed hasn't earned anything. And it's looking like he never will.

NEWSFLASH a-hole, let the police be the police. You dont have to tell them where a bad guy is and what he looks like...we already know. Oh and btw, you were a paperjumper in SOS and only there because of your Park District clout so stop trying to lump yourself in with the REAL SOS guys from years past.

The phrase "two way street" comes to mind on that one. When I see a boss to respect, I give him that respect, otherwise, like they say in the military, "If you don't respect the man, at least respect the rank." I've busted my ass too with little to show for it.

I just don't think that that should automatically make him the bad guy and absolve the Mayor for the way this Department has been allowed to deteriorate. That is nothing short of criminal, and soon, maybe even this summer, Jody Weis will take the fall for the Mayor and walk off into the sunset with his severance package, and a new buffoon will take over the Department. He will then begin carefully rearranging things with his little puppet hands as the strings are pulled from City Hall.

Then you'll have a new target to shoot at, but the same old Mayor and the same old bullshit!

4/27/2009 07:06:00 AM



Excellent points! However $310K a year is the cost of his soul! Oh, I’m mistaken, its $310K a year to be the Superintendent and … what…other… hhhmmmm… we seem… to… be just in one…place…. And the Mighty Midget bought and pays for it for 3 years! Is it all WIES’ fault? Oh hell no! The problems we have now have been festering here for a while, its just starting to come to a head now. He just happens to be running the show while the circus tent is burning. And we can name shit off all day long; The Mayor, A.S.A’s, judges, clout, politics, more clout, CAPS, merit promotions, clout, dogs, and so on. But “As an outsider brought in to reform the C.P.D.” who has done NOTHING to help it but toss us a few M-4’s (Sparingly, might I add). And for …“take some time to research and review the job and the situation they are getting themselves into…” What, like an outsider with 1/3rd of a brain wouldn’t talk to someone about this shit-pile and what they are getting into? Not to mention, HE WAS HERE WITH THE FBI! So he kinda knew what was in store for him! So, he is either STUPID or DILLUSIONAL, or both! Just another whipping boy, The Mayor can sick his hand up Wies’ ass and make him talk like a puppet. No more, no less.

Ok, So, do us a favor… POST IT! Please, let us the obviously uninformed know just what our illustrious leader has done for us! POST IT! A simple request: POST IT! Go to your local library, friend’s house, somewhere so no one finds out an I.P address and POST IT! Tell us how he has helped out morale on the job! Let us know about how the changes in the merit process are turning out! It is kind of “Transparent”, most of us can see right through this bullshit! Or the; “less officers have been fired under his tenure” crap… Let me see, 2 bags of peanuts = shitcanned, while armed robbery for cups of Starbucks (Look up the definition in your ILCS!) = suspended. Hmmmm… Wearing OUR uniform. That’s right; OUR, the one that WE earned. WE earned it at Bulls riots, domestics, 10-1’s, stinkers, project stairwells, freezing and boiling details. WE earned it coming home sweaty, beaten and bloodied. WE earned it seeing OUR friends in the hospital, and unfortunately, at funeral homes. And he thinks he can wear it at a Funeral directly related to what his friends did? I’m willing to bet, WE, as in just you and I, stood side by side at some of those events. Feel free to tell me when I’m wrong! Oh, let me know how things turn out after your daughter gets caught up acting a fucking-fool in a condo owned by you, with dope and guns and gang-banger boyfriend in it. I’ll give you a hint; you are only a detective, now what’s the unit number for “Alternative Response”? And the list goes on, and on…

I have had, in patrol and units, the absolute pleasure to work for some of the best bosses on this job, and work I did! I have also worked for some real assholes and idiots on the job as well and still brought in heads, every day.

You speak of “Respect” and “Loyalty” in your post. Both are strong words. Being the Police, former military, a father, and taking things somewhat seriously, I know the meaning of the two very well. Intangible things which are earned, not handed out like a button at a High School “Pep” rally. However, BLIND = LEMMING, and I’m not running off a cliff for anyone!

Am I going to completely ”Diss” him by saying he is the anti-Christ, and has done nothing for the department? NO! I cant lie, he has done some good. (M-4 program, a change in some of the policy, launching Charlie Williams) However, am I a fan of his; Hell NO! But I am willing to keep an open mind on just about anything outside of broccoli. So, in the general discourse of daily goings-on surrounding this department, which you may or may not be “in the know” about, where he has exhibited a “Trustworthy” quality (Because why would one be loyal to someone they do not trust?) that we, in the dank, dark cellar called “Patrol Division” might find useful, do us a simple favor: POST IT!

In your 29+ years on the job, you, above all knows that there are more bullshit rumors, lies, fabrications and stories going on. More so, since “He” took over. So, how about this idea: Do him, yourself, and us a favor: FUCKING POST IT! Shed a little light on the crap. FUCKING POST IT! A simple appeal.

Until then, I, and a shit load of others around here are kind of reserving our toga wearing chest thumps and bellow of “Hail Jody” (Or Jack-boots and chants of “Sig Heil Wies”) to something more in the fashion of “Caveat Emptor”. Until then "comrade", I'm keepin my head down and bullshit detector turned to "High"!

Oh yeah, morale is just way up there. I still respond to calls of help and 10-1's and calls of injured citizens etc.

But it is amazing the transformation I have seen in this city. Citizens are driving like they just graduated from driving school. And they are obeying all parking ordinances too. I just finished my first parking ticket out of the new red ticket books. I looked high and low for days and finally found a parking violator. One.

As for movers it has become tedious looking for the non-existent mover. I am still on my first book of 2009. People are simply driving much better, My years of efforts seems to be paying off.

My hat is off to the good citizens. No violations equals no tickets written.

Same for arrests. I recently had to make number 2 for the year. A misdemeanor. Poor guy deserved to go to jail and he did. But he is in a real minority.

I am very pleased with all the good behavior I am observing from citizens in my district. Keep it up.

My morale is simply sky high. I have the very best of cutting edge police equipment with which to work. I love my boss and I hold Jody Weis in very high regard and I love my benevolent Mayor. Really, I do.

All is right with the world. Who needs a new contract? This is Nirvana.

As a detective, you are completely out of touch with morale on the street. What exempts deserve loyalty? Commanders such as Mealer, Doty, Hales-Krump? Weiss who state we are fully staffed in districts? We have competent equipment and training? Silent means one thing-silent. Most officers will respond to in progress calls and 10-1. What is missing is proactive work. With a competent leader, officers will do proactive police work, not just response to inprogress calls. Crime is high despite the spin doctors at 35th street. Arrests and tickets are down. Check the stats Mr Detective in a specialized unit. You are so far remove from a beat car. It is a shame.

THat asshole Dana Alexander and his troll Karla only did what they could to better their needs.

I wish someone to tell him that his 2 Lts are the ones who are feeding this bullshit to anyone who will listen. Lt. MR and Lt. S hate him for no other reason than because he is not one of the do nothing ass holes who let them all do what the fuck they want to do though they don't know shit!

You have forgotten that we the patrol officer shoulder 90 % of all the work load .

So do me a favor when you see a uniformed officer please just say thank you for the report you get to write a sup on and go about your busy day. If not than please just go have a circle jerk with the pretender we have for a SUPERINTENDANT, because we as a whole will not ever accept him as one of us as a real police officer.

He also needs to get rid of all those office people that Commander Alexander left. They are sabatoging you. Pay attention. No matter what you do, they are undermining everything you do. We also need more than PPO's working here. We have more fucking PPO's than we do real police. This is just stupid. They don't know shit, but keep sending them here and expect us to train them. Keep the out of grade pay and give us some experienced officers. They have set him up to fail and since I live in the district, I am pretty pissed about it. My kids have to go back and forth here.

Dana Alexander's puppet, please stay off our blog. By order, you have to have a Comm. Policing Sgt. and a School Sergeant, so that is 2, so that leaves 3 on the street if that is really the number you want us to work with. ALL sergeants get a furlough dumb fuck, the few we have happened to pick furloughs that overlap. So what do you want the Watch Commanders to do, deny furlough extensions to appease assholes like you!

What needs to be done is to assign us some more sergeants and some real police, not recruits. I just got off and I am exhausted just thinking about all the extra effort we have to put forth because this district is full of PPO's on all watches. We don't have the true manpower they reflect in data warehouse. 10 PPO's maybe equal 1 lazy PO.

Get your facts right before you try and post here asshat. Oh yeah, I forgot you used to work with him in 007 and he called your shit when you refused to work the watch 1 or 2 days a month to help us out because you claimed CR's should be the only thing you have to do. Yeah right team player!

I am NO Commander's fan, but I do respect this guy and his efforts. This is refreshing for 004.

No you idiot, you again did not read what I posted, "straight days into hours," you lose days when convert to hours, you don't know your the math! This is not working day furloughs, this is for 10 years or less with 24 strait days = 192 hours which shortens the furlough days in the period. And no I'm not of CPS higher education but I see you getting off the short yellow bus everyday to work!

Stop whining ass hole. 8 hours is 8 hours. Just because your watch commander normally lets you visit all of your girlfriends in the district and cut out early so you can go to the bar, doesn't constitute a reason for you not to come here. You are too fucking dumb to be a sergeant anyway. Last I checked, 7th period last year we were stuck covering your district's ass for the same reason, vacation!
