Interesting Observation

There were almost as many comments about the "Office Space" crack we made as there were to the "Talk Like Shakespeare" post.

We see the the low side of humanity more than most people even dream about, but anyone who has grown up around coppers knows that there is an inordinate amount of knowledge regarding so-called "high brow" subjects like Shakespeare, cult movies, art, history and other subjects.

Still, it's amusing to see it in action.

Open post for now.

Hamlet | Act I, Scene IV

MARCELLUS:
Something is rotten in the state of Denmark.

(the fish is rotting from the head down—all is not well at the top of the political hierarchy)

Richard III | Act III, Scene 4

Thou art a traitor:
Off with his head! Now, by Saint Paul I swear,
I will not dine until I see the same.

I don't think you can find anything Shakespeare wrote that doesn't have a reference that can't be made to fit shortshanks and his criminal activities.

What a fool to come up with this idea.

A brief description of shortshanks:

Life's but a walking shadow, a poor player,
That struts and frets his hour upon the stage,
And then is heard no more. It is a tale
Told by an idiot, full of sound and fury,
Signifying nothing.

Macbeth Act V

Henry the Fifth, Act III

Once more unto the breach, dear friends, once more;
Or close the wall up with our English dead.
In peace there's nothing so becomes a man
As modest stillness and humility;
But when the blast of war blows in our ears,
Then imitate the action of the tiger.

Sounds like a coppers life to me!

Take a look at this website for a fairly good analysis of that case and what it means to us.

Somebody please tell me:

St. Judes is being moved back to Michigan Avenue where it belongs, right?

Please tell me it is so?

Yeah, it was nice to be near the memorial, not diminishing the value or the purpose of the memorial park; but Michigan is the crown jewel of the city. We belong on Michigan on that bright sunny morning, not just the yuppies and poochie walkers! I felt the other path we took was obscured from public view. That was wrong. They need to stop traffic so we can honor our dead.

Nevertheless, I will still be there whether it is on Michigan or not. My whole watch will be there too. (We are on midnights). Then I am RDO on Monday/Tuesday. CCSPD lost three officers; I knew two of them. John Rusnyak was before my time. Michael Ridges was my contemporary as was Jim Knapp. I tell my crew to think of the sacrifice that they made, and give up a few hours on a Sunday for them as well as your departed.

I couldn't think of a better way to start my RDO'S.

Signed,

Concerned County Police Sergeant.

OT: but to enlighten the obviously UNINFORMED tact officer at Diversey and Shefield on 23 APL 09 at or around 1545 hours:

No where in Illinois State Law does it state that an armed guard on the way to work with proper credentials has to keep his/her weapon covered from view. The TAN CARD is what ALLOWS the carry of the weapon. The FOID card is what allows the ownership of said weapon. So the NEXT time you decided to be an over testosteroned ASSHOLE make sure you know the law as well as the person you are harassing. Had you taken the time to CHECK credentials before you barked like the braindead MORON you were,you would have KNOWN WITHOUT DOUBT that the person you were dogging was PERFECTLY LEGAL in carrying that weapon. Oh by the way did Cap't Ryan talk to you about that little lapse in judgement? Pull THAT again and it WILL be a FORMAL COMPLAINT.
