The Plagiarist

For over four years now, this blog has run a picture of a business card we used as a promotional tool when we first started. Along with the blog name and tag line (sarcasm and silliness), we utilized the phrase "THE SOURCE for Chicago Police info" as a stab at bravado, not realizing that in four years, we'd be averaging over 10,000 hits a day and moderating 2,000 comments a week.

Now we see that the "Blog 501" is attempting to co-opt the term "THE SOURCE" right on the front page.

We're not sure how a "blog" that has 12 posts in three weeks, 150 comments and 17,000 total visits can claim to be anything close to "THE SOURCE" for anything regarding timely information. And again, since J-Fed has entire divisions of armed secretaries at his beck and call, should he really be wasting precious Department resources and valuable manpower that ought to be manning beat cars on a website?

It just seems silly, silly, silly we tell you. That's silly.

BLOG 501... Now that’s some funny shit! Nothing but a bunch of cock-choking sycophants and ass kissers. “You’re a stand-up guy, boss” “You’re the best boss ever” “Geee Supt, I wish we were all like you” “Supt, you’re doing a great job!” “I Can swallow some more? I swear, I’ll go balls deep this time!”

Don't worry, SCC; we know where to find the truth about the Dept and it isn't on the CPD 'official' blog. It will waste away and die soon.

"Blog 501"?

What type of horsehit is this?

The only "posts" 501 has are BULLSHIT posts from downtown employees trying to pad the numbers at Weis' demand.

NO ONE gives a shit about a management run bullshit blog attempting to use it as a tool to sell their bullshit to the public.

I actually feel sorry for the pathetic humps that actually sit at their computer at work and have to type in FAKE responses to Weis' tripe.

Note, for example, how even the "negative" responses are actually "questions" or "setup comments" used to promote a response that supposedly answers all.

Never is there a true comment that blasts Weis' bullshit or lies directly. Never is there a comment that condemns the way Weis has torn this department to shreds under the Daley thumb of stupidity.

Nothing acusatory will show up on the "True Source" for BULLSHIT & LIES because nothing that defames Weis or his pathetic "fuck the police" FED mentality is allowed to stay there, nor would anyone in their right mind attempt to leave such comments on the "Weis" blog because LIE #1, the "Don't worry folks, your PC number won't be used to track you" is the FIRST LIE that only some stupid fuck rookie would make the mistake of doing.

On the other hand, someone shrewd can always run the freely available personnel roster from the main website without logging in. This would then yield volumes of PC numbers to spread around the blog for anyone to use, wouldn't it?

Hmmmmm....

If you want a CREDIBLE source, sort out the gems on Second City Cop. If you want to guzzle the Kool-Aid, Blog 501 is THE place.

Upon her graduation from the University of Leningrad, Jacquelyn Heard was hired as a stringer for Pravda.

Currently, Ms. Heard is the press secretary and minister of propaganda for Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley.

Is there any way that retirees and civilians can access blog 501? We might be able to ask some real questions and make real comments.

I googled this "Michael Masters" guy. Ah, an Ivy League education. I'm soooooooooooo impressed.

Is Masters the "MASTERmind" conduit or liaison between da Antichrist and da WEISel?

A gentlemen's proposal, Mike Masters: You and I sit down to a game of Scrabble. If you win, I'll disappear. If I win, both Daley and Weis resign forthwith.

No "Chicago Way" cheating, Mickey Boy!

P.S.: Jody Boy.

I wanted to initiate a rational dialogue with you after the ceremony Saturday morning but the good 018 sergeant stopped me in my tracks as you disappeared.

Let's do lunch. I've got the check.

What do you expect. Almost everything they do is taken from someone else, and of course they take the credit for it.
Years ago a PO had a plan that saved the city millions, and some boss took credit, never even mentioned the PO. Thats the last time he ever saved the city any money. Now he does consulting and makes his own money!

Why ANYONE on this Job would go near 'Blog501' is beyond me.
I will never logon there just to read what Masters, the Minister of Propaganda, has to say, or has decided to 'enlighten' me with.
You'd think that one of the sworn supporters who have their noses buried deep in Jody's ballsack would have wised him up to the fact that Cline/Camden made a similar attempt, which crashed and burned. Too many dummies surrounding the WEISel. A fitting end to a real bum.

SCC this blog has been the greatest resource for the average policeman. Even though there is alot of trash talking, you expose the patronage and corruption that ruined this department and the arrogance to think that a ex-fed and a 27 year old (both of which are white and have never been around those people) could ever understand the complexities of urban culture is beyond me.

Regarding this 501 Blog (never been there), you can bullshit all of the people some of the time and some of the people all of the time, but to decerning readers you can't bullshit with the authenticy of what you get here.

To SCC's credit it's pretty much anything goes and the REAL POLICE that contribute to this site recocgnize and call out the "toolish" and wanna be's.

You can't go from zero to sixty and create that knd of dialouge unless you're getting posts from real cops who respect the blog.

Cops, old bull cops, can smell bullshit miles away. So can criminals and It's not surprising because when you deal with it so much you know it when you see it.

Channel 9 News at Nine with Mark Suppelsa and Julie Unruh just reported arrests have been made in the St. Sabina shooting. Phather Phaker was on tape thanking the community for stepping up and giving over the information needed so the arrests could be made. Phather Phaker also related that he hoped this would spark others to step forward when they have vital information about future wrongdoers.

Then they reported that Phather Phaker has already given the $5,000.00 reward to the person having supplied the information. He did not even wait for a conviction! I think we know what the first question will be posed by the defense attorney to the bribed "outcry" person! HA!

WTF! How is that stepping up, when the member of the community with the information was bribed to talk! Phather Phaker better have a whole shitload of $5,000.00 rewards to hand over to these honorable citizens that are so willing to hand over information. And where did he get the $5,000.00 dollars? From the church funds?

"no IP addresses will be tracked but CPD will have to log into leave comments."

STELLAR.

Nothing like being able to leave comments for your boss, whether anonymous or by name which should be by your choice!

38 and Gone - Go get some random PC# as 06:19 suggested, then use a proxy server to spoof your IP address. You could also use a PC at a library or internet cafe if you find the proxy server too difficult/inconvenient.
