Just a friendly word of advice:
- We seldom censor comments, seldom meaning about 93% of what readers submit goes through. Certain words, phrases, names-calling gets banned right away. Repetitive comments, thousand-word manifestos, overly long quoting of previous posts is judged on a case by case basis. It a labor intensive job, but we enjoy it and we've got plenty of help.
We've also stated in the past that we have readers on 6 continents. We cannot prove, nor do we intend to prove, that any particular commentator is, was or might one day be a Chicago Cop. Certain persons admit to their identity as current or former cops, but most don't. And as we appreciate our current anonymity, so we respect those who choose to remain nameless.
It is in the vein that we once again feel compelled to issue our standard semi-annual warning - advocating or participating in any sort of job action is punishable under Department Rules, Regulations, General Order and FOP Contract by termination. As we've stated, it would be hard to prove anyone who typed such a comment on an anonymous internationally accessible blog was doing anything but howling at the moon. But in a roll call room? In a processing room? Over a PDT? The walls have ears. So do the cars, the attached cameras and the mysterious talking radios that have long been rumored to have a switch that can listen to in-car conversations.
