Changes This Week?

Now that they've released the Commander "application" packet, does that mean there won't be any district level movement?

Rumors have been swirling for two weeks now that 01 August is the date for a whole bunch of changes.

Is this going to be another "reorganization" of Bureau movement or a wholesale reshuffling of gold stars?

The trouble is the incompetent just get moved around and there's never any actual accountability.

The Peter Principle is the principle that "In a Hierarchy Every Employee Tends to Rise to His Level of Incompetence."

Peter's Corollary states that "in time, every post tends to be occupied by an employee who is incompetent to carry out his duties" and adds that "work is accomplished by those employees who have not yet reached their level of incompetence".

I heard from a good source that this entire exempt application process is just a scam to placate the federal hiring monitor. Henceforth all promotions to exempt have to pass muster with the federal hiring monitor. The city will have to show the hiring monitor a resume of qualifications, that entitle someone to be promoted. In the end all promotions will still be by clout.

I don't expect the media to report, nor do I expect any community leader and politician to deal with. Here's a perspective from a Chicago Reader Blog (no longer online, but I included the old URL).

Part 1

Poor baby
April 24th - 12:01 a.m.

"Can you blame black folks like Jones trying to get a few kickbacks for themselves when they've been continually screwed over for the entirety of this city's history?"

Did you type that with a straight face?

Because you've got to be joking.

'black folks'?

Here's some serious racism, buddy, racism practiced by black folks on black folks:

1. Black gangsters, committing every conceivable variation of crime upon other black folks.

2. Black 'preachers' constantly pounding it into the heads of their congregations that they, the black 'preachers', are the only people looking out for black folks.

3. Black politicians, whether elected, employed, appointed, contracted, connected or 'community leadership' scammers, all conspiring to present themselves as the only hope that black folks have of ever 'getting their piece of the pie'.

4. Black property owners actively conspiring with other black, brown yellow and white property owners to milk the taxpayers via their over priced and under maintained slum rentals.

Part 2 of "poor baby" Chicago Reader Blog:

5. Black businessmen and women who refuse to invest in the black communities, for all of the obvious reasons.

6. Black politicians deliberately neglecting their own constituents, for the sole purpose of keeping their voters down, and almost out, as a dumb and poor electorate can't see through these politicians' bull#### anywhere near as well as an educated, hard working, tax paying, intelligent electorate can.

7. Black 'leadership' which has deliberately practiced divide and conquer techniques amongst their own people, thwarting every honest black community leaders' attempts to unify this city's black population, said population which has more than enough voters to not only oust their plantation style alder####s, but the mayor, and the horses' asses he rode in on.

8. Black self styled intellectuals, using what little brains they have, to 'move on up, and out' of the neighborhoods in which they were born, and believing, with some factual reasons, that the many they leave behind are really too ####ing stupid to bother caring about.

9. And those blacks who are left behind? Well, they really are too ####ing stupid to care about, since they prove, on a daily basis, that they're satisfied with being stupid, taking what meager handouts they can get, for doing nothing, and default to blaming their lot in life on the white man, which, if they weren't so ####ing stupid, they'd realize that they have more than enough votes in total to replace every last uncle and aunt tom alder####er with kick ass, take no prisoners, real black leaders, who'll likely have at least enough power in the city council to force the minority whites to not only provide full city services to the black neighborhoods, but share, involuntarily, all the perks and bennies that the whites now dominate. How many aldermen would it take to stop daley and his crew right in their tracks? (this is not a trick question)

Of course, this would all mean that the blacks on the west and south sides would face the inevitable reality of having to carry their own weight, tax-wise, as the improvements that honest black leaders with balls would be making would have to include real job creation, requiring real job training and real, honest and successful efforts on the part of those being trained, with the subsequent increases in income, property values and individual tax burdens that would follow.

Why aren't black leaders claiming territorial rights to building new businesses on the west and south sides? Businesses that provide more than minimum wage employment?

Why aren't black leaders uniting to use the leverage that private ownership of all that vacant west and south side land provides, in proposing the actually effective use of TIF monies?

Why aren't black leaders touting the skilled and educated work force that the residents of the west and south sides' possess? Or don't the leaders in these black communities believe there are any skilled and educated residents living there?

Why haven't the black leaders insisted that they control and design the inevitable Chicago Casino Complexes, and that they be located on the acres of vacant and easily accessible land bordering the Eisenhower and Dan Ryan expressways?

Oh, that's right, I forgot, there are no black leaders and the black electorate is too ####ing stupid to recognize real black leadership, let alone elect them, even if there were any.

You want to talk about 'serious racism', talk to yourself.

If there is no quota system on this department, why do they always compare the numbers to last year? If crime is down then that should be enuff, but by compairing the stats to the previous year and holding commanders accountable to that " and officers " That my friend is a quota. No doubt about it. Why do they compare the recovered gun numbers, if gun control is working why do commanders have to insure that the same number of guns are recoverd as last year? Hear that reporters and media types Chicago Police Operating Under a quota System.

Not to mention an evidence technician in charge of the traffic section and a traffic specialist in charge of ERPS. There will be a SWAT guy in charge of neighborhood relations and a matron in charge of SWAT......It's not as if we were going to have a Superintendent who was never the police, along with his best man, an exempt sergeant/acting Deputy Superintendent a few civilians and an expert bartender to round out the team.

I again listened to the news regarding racism in the police department. My father in law told me years ago that the best solution is black officers work in black neighborhoods, hispanic officers in hispanic neighborhoods and white officers in white neighborhoods, etc. etc. No one can cry racism against the police. The department already does this with the commanders to satisfy the majority in that area.

re: Change we can believe in


LETTER FROM A BOSS.....

As the CEO of a local Company, I have resigned myself to the fact that Barrack Obama is our President, and that our taxes, and government fees will increase in a BIG way. To compensate for these increases, our prices would have to increase by about 10%.

Since we cannot increase our prices right now due to the dismal state of the economy, we will have to lay off six of our employees instead. This has really been bothering me, since I believe we are family here and I didn't know how to choose who would have to go.

So, this is what I did. I walked through our parking lot and found six Obama bumper stickers on our employees' cars and have decided these folks will be the ones to let go. I can't think of a more fair way to approach this problem. They voted for change; I gave it to them.

I will see the rest of you at the annual company picnic.

If there are moves, it means they must have qualified with they're 3 yrs as an exempt so they can now pillage our pension fund for their gold braid pensions!

The "Commander Application" is step 2 in the eventual goal of separating the real "bosses" from the district peons. In short order, District Commanders will be included in the peon level and treated like true trash by everyone else above them. They will be considered as worthless as Cpt. or Lt's in the order of "real" bosses. District command was once thought necessary for higher promotion, just for the street creds if nothing else. Now, it's just a signal that some low level peon has been duped into thinking they've been touched by an angel to become exempt, only to find that they're nothing but a replaceable shithead to the federal fuckup downtown and they are forced to live a lonely existence as Daley's toilet paper for about 7.00 an hour for all the hours they put in as a salaried employee.


Fuck the job, Fuck Daley & Weis, keep your head down, watch your back even from those you work with, go home, then find another job elsewhere.

Of course it is. Your are 100% correct sir. Why do you think they were taking resumes for the security specialist position a while back? Shackman.

They had no intention of hiring ANYONE from those submitting resumes, it was to protect the clout babies from losing their spot from a lawsuit.

You cant be in that unit unless you go to a week long class taught by the USSS. Here's da catch, you just cant sign up for it (even on your own time/money), you have to be sent by the police dept you work for and if you dont have a heavy phone call, sorry charlie.

He did this by throwing away
most of the people with enough leadership and management skills
to help him catch on. Whatever he does now, it will be like pissing on a barn fire that has burned down 3 walls already. Whenever Daley gets tired of this open spectacle of incompetence on a grand scale, he can end this, as this was a disaster of his creation
(albeit with a lot of help by the ridiculous elf Masters). The combination of inept leadership and hiring slowed to a crawl have proven to be a disaster to what was once a proud (and functional) place to work.

If you want court you only have to write one person a couple of tickets and then don't remember anything in court. That way you get paid and the shity and crook county get nothing. See how easy that is and you can't get sued. I'm tired of hearing the same old song and dance as long as you do your job there is nothing they can do to you. I have heard some say they lock people up to keep thier cars, well it's only yours until someone else wants it and it doesn't matter how much work you do. The best line I have heard in along time was some tact guy telling the locck-up guy he arrests people to keep his spot.

OT: "Jodi says that "brain drain" is no problem because new recruits are better trained at the academy today than they were 20 years ago."

----

This is some funny stuff. Who the hell is getting into trouble but the younger officers. Older officers aren't racking up the CR's because they know what to do and what not to do. I know alot of people will say that older officers do nothing but I am a younger officer and I watch the older officers and its not that they don't do anything, its that they work smarter. Why? Because they've been there and done that and that experience gives them an extra layer of common sense.

Younger officers are not trained better. Afterall looks who's training them at he academy, a bunch of young officers who hardly ever worked the streets. The real training they get is in when they are released to the streets. They stay out of trouble while they are on probation and with a FTO but after that, the gloves come off and some of them get stupid. We all know that. By year 5 or 10, they are in trouble. Too many mistakes made and one dumb one catches up to them. Jody must not be able to look at the overall picture guess it figures.

Inasmuch as Weis is Daley's chosen one, he is still FEDERAL employee (pension recipient), with the responsibilities of enforcing Federal Laws.

So when it all comes to a head (and it will) and he gets his walking papers (wait for it) is he going to do what is federally mandated of him and report all the "wrong-doings" he saw/participated in, or is he going to just walk away, with his tail between his legs because like Daley "he didn't know nottin'"

Waiting for it still .....

Secondly, if Daley wasn't "aware" of companies were that he handed over our pension monies to be invested, how in the world is any federal agency not going to handle the Olympics and take away the silver (okay green) lining Daley is waiting for come Oct 2nd????

I heard from a good source that this entire exempt application process is just a scam to placate the federal hiring monitor. Henceforth all promotions to exempt have to pass muster with the federal hiring monitor. The city will have to show the hiring monitor a resume of qualifications, that entitle someone to be promoted. In the end all promotions will still be by clout.

I heard that they are going to put a horse in charge of the canine unit, a dog in charge of the mounted unit, a gang specialist in charge of youth division, a youth officer in charge of gangs, a helicopter pilot in charge of the marine unit and a diver in charge of the helicopter unit. Not to mention an evidence technician in charge of the traffic section and a traffic specialist in charge of ERPS. There will be a SWAT guy in charge of neighborhood relations and a matron in charge of SWAT......It's not as if we were going to have a Superintendent who was never the police, along with his best man, an exempt sergeant/acting Deputy Superintendent a few civilians and an expert bartender to round out the team. Now that would be a travesty!!

___________________________________

You couldn't be more wrong. Exempt ranks can be political appointees and ARE NOT subject to the scrutiny of the federal monitor.

Exempt ranks can be openly chosen by clout and admit that clout played a role in the hiring. They are exempt from civil service protections AND the Shakman Decree.

The monitor does not apply to Exempt choices as it does not to commissioners in Streets and Sanitation, Battalion Chiefs in the F.D., Directors in various city departments etc.

Alder persons can call and recommend exempt bosses officially.

The Peter Principle is the principle that "In a Hierarchy Every Employee Tends to Rise to His Level of Incompetence."

Peter's Corollary states that "in time, every post tends to be occupied by an employee who is incompetent to carry out his duties" and adds that "work is accomplished by those employees who have not yet reached their level of incompetence".

7/27/2009 03:02:00 AM

Beautiful, man. And that's just the beginning. If this Gates thing opens up a SERIOUS conversation in this country, blacks are going to finally have to do something that they have always avoided doing which is to air their own dirty laundry and look at themselves, their institutions (church, etc.) and their way of living and blaming others. Only when they start setting standards and expectations within their own culture will we ALL be able to move forward. As it is right now, it's a blame game and everybody else is wrong but them. And while we're at it, maybe we need to start looking at affirmative action. Maybe we need to start re-writing the rules of how affirmative action is defined. Maybe it needs to be based on NEED and not color. For example, a black student whose parents make $250,000 a year as professionals doesn't get a full scholarship just because he or she is black. You can only cry and complain for so long before you: 1. start aggravating other people. 2. Call attention to yourself.

It's time for a revolution in this county alright, but I don't think it's going to be what everybody thought it would be.

Hasn't got promoted cuz he stepped on his pee-pee in covering for his buddies while they were supposedly in court! I'd love to hear how he "knows how to be the police"! Tell me how long before he was sent to 022 that he has spent being "the police". You're trying to say the RYAN clan has no juice??! Get your head outta the sand! You're right, you WILL see a mass exodus from 022 tact, because no one will tolerate working for this self-absorbed clown. He's looking for a gold star and is hoping to get it on the backs of the tact guys. I'm sure he'll have their backs too! Maybe you could call your buddy and work for him.

There is a very strong rumor that some worthless and ineffective moves will be made very soon together with some equally grand and ridiculous pronouncements about reducing crime and finally having all the pieces in place, or is it the place is all in pieces, no matter, it won't matter one little bit. The CPD is still all fucked up. I could do a better job from the grave than this crop of bozos can do alive.

Dear scc :
To 8:19. - if it were only that easy! Years ago something happened either in a predominately african american community or just to one individual, I can't remember the specifics. And the community cried racism by the police. The police response called bullshit cause the officers were black. The community's response to that was that the black officers acted like a white racist cop because they work with the white cops and just do what they do cause they were brainwashed. And the black officers don't care about the black community because they feel that they have to keep up with the white cops and be a family of blue. This is a true story I didn't make it up. So no matter what is done there is always going to be an excuse for fucked up behavior by animals.

What is sad is that Captains make more than a Commander and a District Commander works a minimum of 80 hrs each week if you work in 3,4,5,6,7,8,9,10,11,12,15, 22 and 25. The rest of you are a fucking waste especially TRU and MSF. What was sad was watching the Commander of 011 be badgered by idiots who have never been a Commander in a fast District and 2 people who have never been the fucking police. Yeah, Cuello asked questions, but look at her fucked up stats when she was impersonating a Commander in 10, and now she is number 3!!!

Exempt staff spend more time trying to appease these fucked up aldermen than telling them the truth, they are just as responsible for their communities as the police are. WTF? Have we allowed them to forget that?

No matter who we like or don't like, ALL of the Commanders of the above fucked up Districts work their fucking asses off and if they are rewarded by being moved around just to start over again because they have pissed a few of us off, this department and this Superitendent is more fucked up than I thought!

Don't waste your time being a Commander or doing shit. Just sit back and wait for this fucked up feds to leave!
