No More 'Splaining for You

Commander Martinez, dumped from 014 to 002, midnights.

Escalante from Bomb and Arson takes the helm.

Supposedly the first of a number of directed dumps about to shake up the exempt ranks. Again. Nothing like consistency in upper management to let everyone know that the situation is completely under control.

Pay no attention to the machinations behind the curtain! We've got your back! Nothing to see here! Move along!

Dear Officers working 10-99 on 1st & 3rd Watch,

You do NOT have to work 10-99 on 1st or 3rd Watch! All you need to do is to submit a To-From subject report to your D/C through your W/C that states you do not want to work 10-99 on 1st or 3rd Watch.

This request MUST be honored. If not, call FOP immediately! And get your Unit Rep to fight for you, this is a right we won many years ago after previous officers were killed in the line on 3rd and 1st watch while working alone.

There exists a signed letter of agreement between the City of Chicago and the FOP to this effect.

If all PO's, young and old, submitted this to-from report tomorrow, well, I believe it would be the most effective thing police officers could do as a group.

Lucio is harmless, but he didn't deserve the promotion either. A big part of what is wrong with this Department is promoting people beyond their abilities. That's politics.

17 Car fires and they blamed it on ESCALANTE for not having them solved in a timely manner so they dumped him out of the Bomb & Arson unit to the wolves in the 014th District. Wow!
So now they replace one dumb commander with a dumber one.
Escalente is worthless and if it wasn't for his buddy (Cmdr. E. Odonnel's wife - you know "blinky" whose condo was the subject of a search warrant where they recovered a cache of guns and a kilo of cocaine) he would never had made commander because he's got the IQ of a rock.

What are you smoking? I've known John Escalante for over 20 years and he's a hard working ,conscientous copper. If this move is true it's really B&A's loss and 014's gain. You say it's like dumb and dumber with Lucio and John? Get a clue. John has always been a good copper even as he rose through the ranks and he never forgot where he came from. Lucio, he was never the police from the get-go. The man is an imbecile and would have never gone anywhere without L.A.P.A.
I think a better fate for Lucio would have been send him to 003 to work for the Burger Queen.

J-Fed or Masters or whoever is running the asylum:
Now would be as good a time as any to launch Eugene Roy from 009. He's been there way too long and has caused morale to plummet in the district. The department is really fucked up as it is but it's compounded when you have a buffoon like him at the helm of 009. There have been numerous good officers,Sgt.'s,Lt.'s and even Capt.'s that have been fucked over by this guy. His ego is second to none and he seems to become extremely jealous of well liked,competent supervisors. When the jealousy sets in he tends to set his sights on these people and then he'll stop at nothing to try and mess with or dump these people.
This idiot certainly deserves to be demoted not promoted but at this point I'd take any kind of move that got him out of 009.

Unfortunately they're aren't enought Hispanic bosses so they couldn't demote all of them completely. That would show that JFED isn't "diverse" enough. So instead of dumping them completely they just F@#K with them and try to force them to quit.

People like the poster above is a total ass-hole. You speak shit about two of the best bosses on this job. I feel you are one of the troll, alleged Detective of Police that likes to the good name of these "Good Men".

These men are loyal and to the poster that stated Cmdr. J.E. will have to put in a fll 8 hours...you are full of shit. He put in his usual 10 to 14 hours a day. O'D is no differnat, making street stops in the ghetto sole at all times of the evening.

Eddie O'D & John Esco would give their shirts off their backs to any copper & their family needing help.

And yes, I know both John and Ed for years and worked for them in the past. They will always have my loyality,....something that is total lacking in the "New CPD".

The problem with this is that it would result in zero time due being granted and also any furlough extension denied due to manpower. The answer is to hire more people and bring back all these people from the made up special units which is not going to happen so we are fucked royally.

Being part of this team is not an accomplishment to be proud of.

Dear Officers working 10-99 on 1st & 3rd Watch,

You do NOT have to work 10-99 on 1st or 3rd Watch! All you need to do is to submit a To-From subject report to your D/C through your W/C that states you do not want to work 10-99 on 1st or 3rd Watch.

This request MUST be honored. If not, call FOP immediately! And get your Unit Rep to fight for you, this is a right we won many years ago after previous officers were killed in the line on 3rd and 1st watch while working alone.

There exists a signed letter of agreement between the City of Chicago and the FOP to this effect.

If all PO's, young and old, submitted this to-from report tomorrow, ............

No such letter has ever existed so stop serving up bullshit.if you had some years on you would know it was a letter between King Richard I and the police wives assoc. It wasn't legally binding then and isn't now unless you think your wife is your bargaining agent. Fop has never even tried to fight this issue.

Commander Martinez did not deserve this. He was a fair boss across the board. He didn't sugar coat anything, lie to his officers,or play games. He had an open door policy and was very approachable. He did a great job during PR Fest and was out there walking the park even during the rain days. cCommander established a good rapport with officers, citizens,community organizations and elected officials alike. He was the best boss 014 has had in the last 20 years. 014 does not have an issue with morale thanx to his leadership. You will be missed boss.

Hey! Did you work for him on the street, or under the desk? Because you won’t have the need for them knee pads again. You said that he was great interacting w/ the community? Well, once he completed his shift and went home, he did not give a RATS ASS about the community or residents, and every time the community expressed their concerns to him, he will say I will take care of it (yeah right) which never did...as far as the P.R parade, you said what great job he did! Where were you? fantasy land? And you are giving him tribute for the great work during the fest? Why don’t you ask the H.P residents? It was one of the worst in years! Thanks to Mother Nature for the thunderstorms on Thursday and Friday, otherwise the pussy GANG- BANGERS could have killed more people. I have only one thing to say AMF !!!!!!!

Can't wait for the real fireworks on the 4th when the mayor blows his top,and has to explain the fallout from JUL 3rd due to LACK OF REAL POLICE MANPOWER& MISAPPROPRIATED/SQUANDERED $$$$.The lack of respect shown towards those who keep us safe is a mortal sin and its time for the Media/Feds to crucify him and his cronies.

Word we hear was that Escalante (the B&A one)was asked by Jodie, as a favor, to take over 014.

So why would a commander leave a quiet back-water D-Unit spot for a hot-spot district?

Unless either B&A is going to be disbanded or LAPA has better plans for Escalante.

John has not changed. Still top shelf, like Eddie O'D. John will turn 014 to it early great days. People will be bidding in there in vast numbers.

Many-Many Hope Pete Fegan gets the command. Another top shelf man/boss. Loves people that can do the job without being baby-sat.

Best to John in his new venture. I would bet John will be taking a double jump up by November.

Reminds me of the plot of the 1991 comedy "The Pope Must Die" in which an easy going orphanage priest is elevated to Pope after a half-deaf Vatican secretary transcribes the wrong name from the College of Cardinals. Hilarity ensues!

14's the best kept secret on the northside. Before, during and after Lucio.

And sorry that Pavon actually wanted the tact team to produce something other than DOPW.

Now if only there was a midnight WC...

And 50% management on days? What have you been smoking? Sounds like Lucio didn't pick you because your a do-nothing with zero activity. Tough.

Hey! Anonymous in 011! Arrrseee is not LAPA. I know because I am "LAPA",and as for the "stuff" she did for her son, it was a technical rule infraction (a catch 22) and not a criminal act for which YOU could not get fired. No officer got taken off of their car and she is not the only one who comes in late. She always made her number in 011 and 014. Can you say the same. As for what her kid was involved in, it was bad for everyone involved. He is not the first police kid to get in trouble and won't be the last. I hope your children never put you through what she has been put through. As SCC says "You should do your research before you talk. It's all public info if you would take the time to research before you start talking about anyone.

Somebody used the word "vindictive" when describing Eugene Roy from 009. You!!! hit the nail on the head, buddy. He's currently fucking with some decent people and he's really getting on my nerves. The awesome people he already ran out of 09 is amazing. Look for a couple more to go.

17 Car fires and they blamed it on ESCALANTE for not having them solved in a timely manner so they dumped him out of the Bomb & Arson unit to the wolves in the 014th District. Wow!
So now they replace one dumb commander with a dumber one.
Escalente is worthless and if it wasn't for his buddy (Cmdr. E. Odonnel's wife - you know "blinky" whose condo was the subject of a search warrant where they recovered a cache of guns and a kilo of cocaine) he would never had made commander because he's got the IQ of a rock.

Oh well, watch your back in 014 guys. Happy sailing Commander!

First of all, Anyone who would post on here as "Anonymous" isnt much of a man, let alone much of a Police Officer... Put your name!!

Second I NEVER read this blog, but when I heard some idiot(s) were trashing a good mans name, I thought Id chime in.

John Escalante is a good policeman and a better boss and the people in 014 are lucky to have him!
