Name the Details

Since we're wasting valuable Department resources on a church, a church that has advocated non cooperation with the police and championed those who back a "no snitching" policy, we figured it was time to bring a couple more misuses of Department assets to the fore. Time will tell if they are actually getting four separate POD cameras in the next few days as is rumored.

Everyone knows about the Meeks church detail using tact teams for traffic control around his monster church. The C.R.O.E. detail is another. Sabina's is only the latest in a continuing series of wasteful spending. Any more obvious wastes of taxpayer money in these trying times?

Remember, since we have to police smarter, we better spend money smarter, too.

UPDATE: Add the political details, too. Burke and his detail for imaginary threats from 20 years ago for starters.

Kind of along the same lines... how about detailing two P.O.'s into News Affairs in order to maintain the department's upcoming FaceBook page? First of all, why the hell do we need a FaceBook page? To make friends with other police departments? Secondly, I thought they were trying to thin the ranks at HQ in order to put more bodies in the districts? Smoke and mirrors, as usual.

Ancient history, but in 018 there was a guy that used to show up on pay day to pick up a check. Not many people knew who the guy was. I asked one time and found out he was assigned as the personal bodyguard to the Greek Archbishop of Chicago. Eventually, the detail was ended and he came back to 018.

I'm sure they STILL have one going on with the Catholic Cardinal, and/or his Lincoln Park mansion.

The problem with the Burke detail is that none of the mainstream media have the balls to attack the man. They're all terrified.

I mean, it's not like then-Appellate court justice Anne Burke didn't have a playground built on top of the appeals court building for their adopted/stolen son "Baby T." No, that shit never happened. Go to the top of Daley Center and look West Southwest and you'll see it.

Everyone of these detail locations has coppers that are hangers-on trying to curry favor. Let them provide off-duty security/traffic control. Let them wear their uniforms just no O.T. pay for doing it.

I have done unpaid security work for my church both in uniform and in plain clothes. Just let the on duty W/C in the district know what you are doing.

That is just wrong to suggest that.

Now the goddamn ASPCA is going to suggest that commenters here are advocating elected officials sodomize golden retrievers.

Personally I would picture Hizzoner with a tiny poodle. The retriever would just laugh at him and ask if he started yet.

One other thing it is not "Irish Hillbilly".

We prefer the term "Mountain Irish".

To the Guy Who Tried to Mug Me in
Downtown Savannah night before last.

Date: 2009-03-23, 3:43 A M EST
I was the guy with the black Burberry jacket that you demanded I
hand over, shortly after you pulled the knife on me and my girlfriend.
You also asked for my girlfriend's purse and earrings.
I hope you somehow come across this message. I'd like to apologize.
I didn't expect you to crap in your pants when I drew my pistol after
you took my jacket. Truth is, I was wearing the jacket for a reason that
evening, and it wasn't that cold outside.
You see, my girlfriend had
just bought me that Kimber Model 1911 .45 A CP pistol for Christmas,
and we had just picked up a shoulder holster for it that evening.
Beautiful pistol, he?
It's a very intimidating weapon when pointed at
your head, isn't it? I know it probably wasn't a great deal of fun
walking back to wherever you'd come from with that brown sludge
flopping about in your pants. I'm sure it was even worse since you
also ended up leaving your shoes, cellphone, and wallet with me. I
couldn't have you calling up any of your buddies to come help you try
to mug us again.
I took the liberty of calling your mother, or "Momma"
as you had her listed in your cell, and explaining to her your
situation.. I also bought myself and four other people in the gas
station this morning a tank full of gas on your credit card. The guy
with the big motor home took 150 gallons and was extremely grate ful!
I gave your shoes to one of the homeless guys over by Vinnie Van Go
Go's, along with all of the cash in your wallet.
I threw the wallet
in a fancy pink "pimp mobile" parked at the curb after I broke the
windshield and side window out and keyed the drivers side. I called a
bunch of phone sex numbers from your cellphone. They'll be on your
bill in case you'd like to know which ones. Ma Bell just shut down
the line, and I've only had the phone for a little over a day now, so
I don't know what's going on with that. I hope they haven't
permanently cut off your service.
I could only get in two threatening
phone calls to the D A 's office and one to the FBI with it. The FBI guy
was really pissed and we had a long chat (I guess while he traced the number).
I'd also like to apologize for not killing you and instead
making you walk back home humiliated. I'm hoping that you'll
reconsider your choice of path in life. Next time you might not be so lucky..
- Alex
P.S. Remember this motto....... an armed society is a polite society!

There was a 24/7 detail at Joe Airhart's brother's house for more than a year after Joe (God rest his soul) was shot and in a coma. Joe's brother complained that the media was bothering him, so he got round-the-clock police protection in front of his house for the longest time... I think it was like 18 months.

Now, most of us are all FOR protecting the family of one of our own... but this guy demanded and got 24/7 protection right in front of his house in the busiest district in the city. And it wasn't like he was threatened by evil neer-do-wells, it was to protect him from questions from the media???

Couldn't he just have treated them like Jahovah's Witnesses and not answered the door like the rest of us do?

Unbelieveable.

To make matters worse, if he looked out the window and din't see that marked squad there, he called the commander and heads would roll. There were a few times when there were shots fired and coppers were chasing some dirtbag with a gun within a block or two of the brother's house, so the coppers assigned to the detail left for a few minutes to help chase down the bad guy, because it's the right thing to do, right? Well, Airhart's brother would make a call and complain and the officers would be reamed for leaving the detail for a few minutes to help fellow officers in a life-threatening situation.

Again, I'm all for looking out for the family of one of our own, but this guy tied up a car and manpower in the busiest, most severely under-manned district in the city for no real good reason at all.

As always, the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

This is your tax dollars at work, people.

Hello, I read this with disgust as a now laid off worker. Just got back from the hospital visiting my 20 year old nephew,who was hit directly in the face with a baseball bat,and his friend was hit in the back of the head with the same bat. Seems some gang banging mexican kids calling themselves the "54 boys" from archer and austin area,decided to start up and now my nephew is fighting to survive. Why does the commander over tere the nurse told me his name is "kup" not have police in this area patrolling? I asked a patrol officer and she told me she was sent "constantly" over to western ave,and that her sergeant never objects to taking a much needed patrol away from the tax paying areas,to put them in an area of non tax payers.

I can only hope and pray that it is not 1 of your sons or daughters that are attacked by these savage punks, if you could see my nephew please prayers are needed! Thanks for all you do, to the management you need to retire or resign your a disgrace to the citizens of this once great city! Mayor you to sir take the weak alderman zalewski with you,maybe he could show you how to get drunk and gamble!!

first off the racine courts car is federally funded by the goverment. all housing complexes have a housing car. if you have projects in your district, you have a housing car. the city mandated a car to be just used as housing cars because they are given federal money for these cars. if the city doesnt put the housing cars up everyday, they loose the federal money.

Four cameras, $18,000 each, installed around the church per the ass-kisser Orosco. Is the same scab that crossed union lines during the firefighter stike in 1980? If so, I know why the mayor loves him so much. $72,000, plus the material and labor costs to install the cameras, so the radical, police-hating priest can bring in the votes for Daley next time around. Pathetic.

Now I know that a few people here may not like President Obama.

That being said arguing that no detail is needed at his house, empty or not, is silly, silly, silly.

Now the Feds should reimburse the City for the costs and the cops getting overtime on the detail should be happy. Sure, it's not as good as a take home car yet.........

Talk about details are you kidding! Details on this job have been going on since this city incorporated. The mayors office has always pimped out the police to whoever he desires, because he can.If someone good with stats were to research and calculate the loss of revenue to taxpayers in this town the numbers would be mind boggling. The Mayors office has always controlled the Police Dept and always will. Very sad, but what can you really do to change this?

The Dept. of Revenue is hitting the neighborhoods hard.

Not only are they writing for city stickers, they are writing every thing.

I had a guy go down my street today in his personal car, in jeans and a t-shirt and hung a ticket on almost every car for one thing or another.

Now what bothered me was he went down the street the wrong way and blocked the street to hang the tickets.

Watch out for these guys and write any violations you can. one way street, alley as a thoroughfare, cracked windshield, obstruction of traffic and bald tires.

The Dept. of Revenue vehicles are not Emergency vehicles nor are their personal cars. They are not exempt and have no authority to disregard the traffic laws to hang parking tickets.

They won't give you a break!!!

And now they are trying to pass an Ordinance to allow these untrained civilian ticket writers to make arrests. WTF???

Now lets talk GARBAGE!

Have you seen the 100 or so brand new garbage trucks the City just bought? So nice and shinny.

Now the Mayor is going to lay off over 100 drivers. All because they won't give back the contract they negotiated in good faith.

Where the hell did he get the money to buy all these new trucks at $80,000 or more a pop? I was also told that they expect 100 or so new snow plows to arrived in the next few months also.

Who got the contract for the purchase, we all know the city did not buy them direct and hired a broker (clout) to middle the deal and make shit load of $$$.

Now who is going to drive them because we all know he cant afford to pay the teamsters, or so he says.

A lot of Streets and San. bosses have take home cars with red/blue lights and sirens. For What???

Civilian bosses in Fleet management have take home Police cars with lights and sirens. For what???

Why do the District managers (civilians) have and drive Police cars?

Why do the Crossing guard supervisors drive Police cars?

Why do they allow the unarmed Police Cadets to drive around in marked Police cars with Police radios? I thought the City Ordinance states you must be 21 years old to operate a City vehicle.

Why do certain (special/Clout) detectives get to take cars home and are/or assigned to a car that no one else is allowed to use. This while other detectives are driving cars that should have been scraped years ago?

Why do the Detectives in Cold Case and all the supervisors who work there get take home cars? FOR WHAT???

Why do the officers who work in personnel and recruit processing all get take home cars?

The list is endless and if you really knew the number of take home cars in this dept and other city agencies you would not believe it!

The control of dept vehicles is a joke. No one ever signs them out as required. We have Police and covert vehicles in my unit that are missing for days on end and no one has any idea where the vehicle is or what it is being used for

Then one day the car is back. They don't know where it has been or who had the car. No questions asked.

In every District and in some units tere are at least 40-50 people "detailed out" to various places, some narcotics, some TRu some MSF oter to gun teams, area mission teams and oter assorted bull sit units, I am not saying some of tese folks arnt busting their ass's and actually doing police work either at the direction of the Area Seputy or others, however basic police services are still delivered to the public through a beat car, That is where the shortages are at in the Districts.

Media types who read this blog to get tips clues and leads to bigger stories look into these facts . You get the bull shit oh
District XX has 345 people in it. BULL SHIT look at the numbers detailed out, substantial believe me. Look a little deeper media folks, look at the numbers of one man cars that should be two man, look at the partial comp time granted during a tour . Those numbers will show a beat car up when acyually after 2-3 hours that officer goes home and the car is down. Read between the lines dont believe the bull shit coming out of 35th St. and City Hall. Protect the citizens with real investigative journalism. I challenge you to do that. Look at the assigned numbers of personnel who are assigned out of 'Detached Services " that is a total ghost unit those aremostly POs some Sgts. who are assigned to DEA, FBI task Force, US Marshalls office bodyguard details to assorted politicians and reverends. At least 200 of those. Most have Take home cars from the agency they are with and an unlimited overtime budget from that agency or a guaranteed amount of overtime each month. A pretty sweet deal. Iam not saying some of these folks arnt working hard, but what did they come on this job to do? Many of them are clout babies who got these jobs vecause they knew someone. What did they come on the CPD to do? Be a beat officer right. Times ate tight, your brothers in blue you left behind are hurting. Media investigate it expose it. J- Fed I challenge you to cancel all details and bring them back and put them in blue suits again assign them to District Law Enforcement where they all should be.

The arresting officer stated that Gates told him he had "no idea who he was messing with," the report said.

Gates told the officer that he was being targeted because "I'm a black man in America."

The police report said Gates was arrested after he yelled at the investigating officer repeatedly inside the residence then followed the officer outside, where Gates continued to upbraid him. "It was at that time that I informed Professor Gates that he was under arrest," the officer wrote in the report.

The President of the United States claims that the police acted "stupidly" during the incident involving the yo yo in Cambridge.

Until now I was on the fence, while I understood why some officers were choosing to just handle their jobs, and not make any greater effort, it wasnt an attitude I was comfortable with, notwithstanding the current political climate.

However, after the President's comments Ive given in. A complete 180. Any officer, doing anything more than whats required, has just got to be insane. The handwriting is clear, concise and picture perfect.

My apologies to those officers I may have frowned upon in the past for a do nothing attitude.

Its completely useless anymore. All I ask is that those officers working where the majority of us live, continue to provide for the saftey of our families.

Please accept my apologies. Im done.

Daley, Weis, and whomever else this concerns,

Why do you all keep lying to the media about not being short on police officers patrolling our streets? Why are you not hiring more officers? Why are you denying that our officers are getting pulled from our districts- thus leaving our kids vulnerable to violence? Our officers ARE getting pulled from our districts and our quality of life is plummeting! We need our districts to be manned and Superintendent Weis- Give all of the officers the resources to do their job. When we have lots of uniform and plainclothes officers scouring for PATROL CARS and UNMARKED CARS- that’s a sad day. Provide enough cars, computers and radios! Our officers should not have to search for 30 minutes for keys or cars!! We should show them enough respect to provide the necessary tools for their job.

People, We should also be a society of Law Enforcement SUPPORTERS- just because some do wrong or act unprofessional- does not mean that we should judge them as a whole. Blanket statements or broad beliefs such as these would not be accepted if it was a minority group- so why is it widely accepted when the victims are police officers? Let's give our officers a contract and start showing our kids to respect our police officers.

The quality of life is deteriorating in the 12th District and we, the residents, need you Mr. Weis and Mayor Daley TO STOP PULLING OUR RESOURCES FROM OUR DISTRICTS. It is becoming a Zoo in Pilsen. Unlike some other communities of the city, there are many hardworking individuals and law- abiding residents whom actually support our police in Pilsen and more importantly, WE STAND A CHANCE AT RIDDING OURSELVES OF THESE PETTY LITTLE GANGS THAT ARE CAUSING HAVOC ON OUR STREETS.

Stop pulling our officers from all of our districts!


To all the idiotic gangs of Pilsen... What is it that you are fighting for? To flash your gang signs and yell your gang slogans to a bunch of mothers outside playing with their children (ages 3 months- 12 years) Pure stupidity! Yeah, real tough guys! We are educated Latinas- We are not going to stand by and take this quietly! You do not own the streets, the corners- nothing! You are all NOTHINGS! We shouldn't have to move because of you. We should be able to stay on the blocks that we were born on. We as mothers should not have to get shot in the back or in the head and killed- leaving behind our kids. Our kids should be able to play in Harrison Park or Dvorak Park- SAFELY! We should be able to take our kids for long walks or bike rides without having the fear that we are crossing into gang territories! Our sons and daughters should be able to play in front of their home without ending up dead like Ana Mateo (August 20, 2003).

Can someone tell me what "official business" the tall, boyish looking, blond, F/2, dressed in shorts and a tee shirt (no gun, star, vest) have at the wine bar at Balmoral and Ravenswood tonight? She got out of a sliver, umarked car, M160250 and walked right over to the outdoor patio.

Who does the plate come back too? Is it a "City" car? Or a "Police" car?

Obama Calls Cambridge Police Stupid

The bigger question should be, why is POTUS getting involved in local issues.
You would NEVER see Bush, Clinton, Reagan, etc get involved in ANY local issues. Yet this numbnuts has to throw his two cents into something that he knows nothing of other than having read something in a newspapaer.

Earlier this month, the Sun-Times reported that Grand Crossing Police Cmdr. Ernest T. Brown ordered that a squad car park in front of Troutman’s home from 9 a.m. to 6 p.m. on Saturdays and Sundays because she was burglarized.

To make matters worse, if he looked out the window and din't see that marked squad there, he called the commander and heads would roll. There were a few times when there were shots fired and coppers were chasing some dirtbag with a gun within a block or two of the brother's house, so the coppers assigned to the detail left for a few minutes to help chase down the bad guy, because it's the right thing to do, right? Well, Airhart's brother would make a call and complain and the officers would be reamed for leaving the detail for a few minutes to help fellow officers in a life-threatening situation.

Again, I'm all for looking out for the family of one of our own, but this guy tied up a car and manpower in the busiest, most severely under-manned district in the city for no real good reason at all.

As always, the squeaky wheel gets the grease.

This is your tax dollars at work, people.

I can't even find words to say about this post. You smug, self-righteous SOB.

Joe Airhart's family's HOME, which was outfitted for his part-time residence, with a fully functional 'hospital'-type room, when he was doing 'well' enough to occasionally be home from the Rehab Institute, was under police guard.

He deserved it. You? Well, I've thought about what YOU deserve, but I'm going to be decent enough NOT to write it here. Really, how dare you equate Airhart with what we're talking about here?

The problem in Chicago/Cook County/Illinois isn't that the voters keep electing corrupt politicians; that's to simplistic. Problem is that the political process fails to attract and cultivate any candidate who hasn't suspect motives and long political ties. Actually Obama was fairly clean for an Illinois politician. Most of our local candidates are so "Daleyed-up" that even a supposed reformer like Forrest Claypool still has years at the political trough in Chicago. (By the way, still don't understand Claypool's sudden decision to not run for Cook County president AND to not run for County Board re-election.)

The 005th District hasn't been sent to the Meek's place for a long time. He has his own people directing traffic.

You guys.... think about what you are doing. We all know that there are many details in this city. Some deserved and some not. BUT this is part of a police officers job in the community. Its not so bad, sometimes it sucks but the community is being served in many mays besides catching the bad guys. Don't forget that. Now what you are doing here is making very strong cases for the city to hire security guards and need less of us. Think ahead guys.

Dude, he was bought off by some big money in the private sector. If we get 2016, he'll be resurfacing somewhere in the mix... mark my words!!!!!

Um, no.
But a very strong case IS being made for Farrakhan (sp?), Burke, the Cardinal, the churches on Sunday and the temples on Saturday... to hire their OWN security guards.
