Speaking of Changes

We saw the same e-mail thousands of others did. Commander applications are available and due 07 August. We also found out that based on our PC number, we can't access the actual application packet (great job there Personnel Division - keep on shining!)

So how come J-Fed can demote a commander and replace him instantly without going through the Commander applications that haven't been submitted and processed yet?

Sounds like the entire process has been exposed as bullshit. Again. Way to build up that "trust" factor there J-Fed.

Subject: Sturgis Hells Angels.

Laurie,

I'm in Deadwood with Harry, Larry D, Carl Tarricone. Today we were in Sturgis and HA is everywhere. Many more chapters than last 3 years. It's 5 days before the official start of the rally and can't believe their numbers. Chapters from AZ, CA & NM. Many trainees walking the street with bottom half of rocker only.

They now have a club house one block over from the Loud American Roadhouse (shooting site last year). It's right in back of One Eye Jack's bar.

Anyway if you think it should be passed on please do so. I don't know of any Blue Knights IV going but poss some from Tri-State.

See you next week.

Sean

My P.S., Be especially caeful of the "trainees", I believe they are called prospects. They may be out to prove themsemselves.

Is there a way to find out how much money the Chicago Police actually "cost" the city? Not what the Mayor and his spokespeople say, but really the actual cost to the city.

J-Pud still hasn't figured it out.
A PROFESSIONAL Police Department must rely on high quality POLICE PROFESSIONALS in order to function properly. Any deviation from this formula, (eg. substituting FBI professionals for police), skews the results. They may have been perfectly good Special Agents but that does not equate to good Police Officers.

What passes as leadership under this guy is absolutely bewildering to me, though the strings are undoubtedly still being pulled by City Hall.!

I have heard from more than one District Commander that with the unpaid furlough days there is no financial gain in this "promotion".

It's not like the old (pre O.W. Wilson) days when district boundaries closely followed city ward boundaries. Then the D.C., and his Vice Coordinator or Community Relations Sergeant (euphemism for Bagman) could gently coerce more from the local business than they could make in salary. But, it passed up the chain and trickled down to street level cops walking the beats Not to say this was in any way good, it's just the way thing had been done since the days of the Roman Legions.

Now, all the headaches, dealing with all the problem cops, the reverends and the politicians, it's just not worth the hassle just for a take home car.

The Gold Braid pension is the key. In this economy and a questionable future, having a huge monthly check coming in till you croak is a MAJOR comfort, especially with the cost of health insurance.

Unfortunately, the gifted gold star leaders have been bleeding the pension fund dry. Couple that with incidents like the pension fund managers giving away millions to the Daley Crime Family, and the fund could go bust before most of us can draw our first check, (though these dire predictions have been heard forever!).

Other than the pension, the Commanders aren't really in it for the money. They either are on their way to bigger and better things, (and they know it), or it's the Power Trip !

Also, African american bosses get those districts, not to be torpedoed, but that is because what is demanded there. Everybody wants to make it racial, it isnt, it is about CLOUT. Qualified African american supervisors, and hispanic supervisors, and white supervisors, are stepped on equally if they have NO CLOUT. They make appear racial so that the rest of us bicker and complain, feel bad for them, when its a big game of whos who. While we lowly patrolmen and supervisors complain a BOSS was wronged because they were (insert race)they are merely replacing one clout baby with another.

We were told yesterday the commander of 011 is being dumped. The rumor we've heard is because of the attention the recent violence is bringing. 011 has always and will always be violent. No commander is going to change that. We have a commander which everyone I have spoken with in 011 definitely like, if not love to work for. He was personable, professional, and seemed to always have our backs and treated us as respect. We were never talked down to, and he never seemed to be to into his command position like so many other commanders. We did the missions he asked for and everyone made the effort to perform for him because we were treated well. 011 was a truly great place to work. Then we find out for some reason he gets dumped. No matter what was happening behind the scenes, ultimately this decision falls on J-Feds shoulders. People ask why morale is bad, and how can it be improved. Here is a clue. Don't demote someone that officers respect and enjoy working for, and do work for, because we work in a shithole district that will never change. And what does heading in a different direction mean. Fillmore will never head in a different direction. If you think things are bad now, be careful who you put in the commanders place. Don't ruin morale even more and turn 011 into another 003.

He treated all of us very well and did the best job he possibly could. Arrests increased under his command and overall activity had increased. People "wanted" to work for Eric because he was a gentleman and treated everyone as an adult. Eric did all he could aside from being there when the shitheads pulled the trigger. We don't know who we are going to get, but we can be sure they will be no Eric Washington. Thank you Commander, FOR EVERYTHING!

That goes along with Crump-Hales and White, to name a couple that should NEVER be in charge of human beings. So many of these Supervisors are no more than that, just supervisors.

Have you listened to Shortshanks new DOWNCAST budget projections, how he keeps saying that 'Police and Fire must come to the table?' I hope their unions don't give that short assed punk back A DIME.

Anyone that wants to go beyond Field Lt. is out of their mind. In some cases Capt. isn't too bad, but everything else, fuck that shit. It is purely a status symbol that you would want to be in with that crowd. I can only think of a small handful of exempt officers that truely are the police. Trahanas as a Commander???? That goes along with Crump-Hales and White, to name a couple that should NEVER be in charge of human beings. So many of these Supervisors are no more than that, just supervisors. Most don't know how to be leaders, just followers of the company line.

This brings me back to a story I heard many moons ago, when Leroy Martin was Superintendent. He finished his interviews of his exempt staff after he was promoted and was going to reshuffle their assignments. He called in a Commander (I believe former 020th DC Martarano) to 11th and State. He told the DC, "I got some bad news for you. You are being reassigned to the rank of Lieutenant... Martarano told Martin that he was only 2 months shy of being vested for his Gold Braid pension. Martin said, "Well, this REALLY IS bad news for you then!"

As much as Martarano tried to bargain with Martin to try to get in those last couple months as an exempt, Martin stood firm and dumped him to Field Lieutenant. If memory serves me, he retired instead. Boo Hoo!

Why is it limited to Lts and Capts? In the past even a PO with the right "experience"could be promoted to exempt. isn't that the history of exceptional individuals like lubeman?

By experience do you mean clout? Because that is all that has ever mattered on this dept.

Both of the above posters have valid points, but I also feel that the "COMMANDER" application should be opened to ALL. We have a current Deputy Chief of CCG whose civil service rank is that of a Sgt. If someone thought he had "the right stuff" to make the jump from stipes to gold star, maybe other Sgts. have the same
qualities, and if WEISel and the Policy Group were going to be completely transparent on this
"application process," they should have allowed Sgts. to apply. It would also make it easier for WEISel to drop a gold star on Sgt.
"Rambo" Ray, as the Supt. is likely to do before he himself is forced out of here by Shortshanks.

They were successful.

Karina R. Fruin would like to thank the men and women of the Chicago Police Department for sending her to law school.

As for the fund being reimbursed, oh that's a good one. Our pension board rep, Mike Shields, was voted down by the Daley Block in his attempts to block the payment of Karina R. Fruin's law school tuition.

Karina R. Fruin's law school tuition continues to be paid. I am sure she will make a fine Corporation Counsel some day.

So if you are ever down at the pension board arguing for disability payments take note of the slightly goofy looking broad sitting next to Executive Director Gallagher; that is Karina R. Fruin and YOU are paying for her legal education.

First of all, Martorano was named by Rodriquez, who followed Martin.

Second, your whole post is BS, Andy retired as a Commander and bought a bar in 016. He wanted to leave and didn't want to be elevated.

==============================
The Commander you are talking about was Frank Fagiano who was demoted just shy of his three years of being a Commander of 20.

Frank had butted heads with Maurer once to many times and Jimmy wanted his head on a platter.

Frank was demoted back to LT, kept a gold star and a company car as an Inspector, and eventually was promoted to Captain. He is now a Deputy Chief in Elmwood Park.

Ok, who has a clue then since I never see anywhere posted on here that anyone does. Just because the people that are bold enough to post here due to their like or dislike of a boss, does not make their statements factual. But not to Jfed. He is sooo stupid. He cannot see that people control his every movement with posts here. I have seen at least 9 meetings and/or requests for reports from my district due to posts here. My Commander is very hi strung, but she gets the job done.

I don't think any of the FBI agents hired have a clue. I am not being negative, but it is fact. They have no experience and no history. Just because they were put in that position and may have done well at the FBI does not count for shit as a CPD employee. I am a damn good Lieutenant, but I don't think that makes me a good anything as a first time leader in the military or whatever.
Also, speaking of budget crunches, Weis brought in his own people that has now cost the city over a million dollars. If you had given 5Lieutenants those same positions, we would not even be at the 300,000.00 mark! These are all new budgeted positions. Since the 5 Lts. are already in the budget as salaried employees, the only increase would be the raise and guess what, over the 2 year period it would not have even reached 1 year of the salary Weis is receiving.

Mayor Daley made a horrible financial decision and a logistical decision. The city will suffer for decades long after this fool is gone. We have lost 700 years of history with all of the dumped and disgruntled exempts retiring. Also, I wish I would put in to be an exempt and work for this incompetent, two faced, back stabbing, don't know shit about the police Impostor Superintendent. How can he have signs posted all over that shows the CPD star that says "earned not given!" When the fuck did he earn the star? It was fucking given to you and $300,000.00 while I barely make $110,000.00 in a year after sweating and bleeding in the street for 2 decades. Weis then turns around and GIVES our star to 5 more of his FBI buddies. How dare they make decisions and pass judgment on being the police, when they have never been the police? How do you have an FBI agent as Commander of one of the city's most important units to police and civilians, IAD, and put a Chief over him that has never worked in IAD and has NO legal background. All he is is Hispanic!

If you were the police Weis you would not have stupidly gotten rid of all the people you could have learned from. You then promoted Commanders to top level positions? We have ranks for a reason.

AS Cuello with all due respect, has no clue about the the division she runs and how can you make ASO Jackson in charge of Operations when he does not control the resources he needs to to make Operations successful. She controls all the cars, radios, training etc. How stupid. Why do you have 2 AS's anyway. More of a waste of money. Why do you have 2 Chiefs of Patrol. More of a waste of money. How do you have Deputy Chiefs and above overseeing major operations with no street nor Commander level history in a high crime area? Why is Roti in charge of ANY aspect of Organized crime? He came from a criminal background family, but that does not make him an expert! Why do you have Dugan running patrol? Why do you have Gulliford as a Deputy Chief in one of the worst areas? He never worked in a working District. Why do you have Deputy Chief Alexander running an area where he poorly performed? He is the biggest "I" Boss I have ever seen. He sits in the CAR meetings bragging about what "I" did. His favorite words "My Commanders." Since when did they belong to your stupid, long winded, self proclaimed successful leader, womanizing ass. Little Ernie is what you should be called. I've met your wife. Enough said. He didn't do shit in 004 and now he is a Deputy Chief? He takes credit for everything any of the Districts, TRU, Gangs or Narcotics does. He has not done shit but take what they tell him and their successes, put it on paper, then stick his chest out like the little idiot he is. He is on the same line as JFed in crew.

Commander WASHINGTON was a true gentlemen and a GREAT boss to work for. He was demoted for two reason's one he wasn't black enough! He didn't play the race card and wanted those who worked hard, to work for him! He didn't play the "I haves to take care of my peoples" shit! I hate to say it but that is one of the facts! The new Commander is that type of person! The other reason was numbers. Yes the 011th Tact team was #2 in the city in arrests. However, the watches were WAY WAY WAY down! 011th District watch officers screwed themselves by slowing down! Commander WASHINGTON did everything but be a jag off to get those numbers going. But in turn the officers didn't look at the big picture. Yes no contract and all the others things that I do agree with need to be fixed before any proactive activity should be done. BUT, you guys fucked yourselfs by doing that and the city and J-Fed knew it! So now the work conditions will go to shit, becasue the officers were thinking of the short term picture not THEIR long term in that district.

' How do you have an FBI agent as Commander of one of the city's most important units to police and civilians, IAD, and put a Chief over him that has never worked in IAD and has NO legal background. All he is is Hispanic!'

Er...excuse me, but Juan Rivera DID work in IAD as a Lt. before being promoted to Cmdr of 025.
I'm not saying that he will be as effective there in his current position of Chief as Skahill was,
but we all know how the political ball bounces in Shitcago these days.

Will Walter Green be the next black exempt to be launched, as a result of todays blastaway at the gang funeral? If I were a betting man, I'd bet on the Cmdr spot in 015 to be on very shakey ground right now...

Rumor Mill *****
J-Fed sat down with some 20 hire ups and a number of officers and they talked about 3 things.

#1) Shootings! He wants to know why they are occuring more this year than any year since 1994. He discussed his command change in 011 and explained that new blood would quell the violence.

#2) Revenue !!! He wants to know why officers are bringing in 30+ % less tickets/ANOVs/Tows than last year. He explained that city hall wants more revenue and we need to help the city generate more $.

#3) Motivating officers to work harder!! He talked about the new rating system and how if officers don't work hard they will face discipline(spar,dumped off car, dumped off watch etc..)

If this info is true then J-Fed is truely a Gigantic Idiot!!!

Word is more command changes by Aug 15th and suprise unannounced visits to 6 districts in the next 10 days to try and ask P.O.s why they are doing less(never admit to anything). He thinks coming to the frontline will instill spirit/trust and it may jumpstart hard work.(he is high)
Be safe my fellow officers and CFD brothers and sisters.

Bruce Lipman was sworn in as Commander of 021 today.

Would that be the same Bruce Lipman who has been hiding out in Headquarters schlepping for various exempts for the past 3 years? The same Bruce Lipman that is a supervisor for White Sox security? THAT Bruce Lipman? What qualities did he have that drew Supt. 'Beady Eyes' attention to him? At least he has been rewarded a a loyal member of the under the desk crew at 35th by being assigned to what has to be the quietest District on the Southside; it practically runs itself, kind of like those Area 3 Districts.

Hey Bruce if you got 021, don't forget the way Doty treated you when you were a 006 LT and he was 006 DC. You should know that his tact sgts and half the team and front office came from 006.
Act accordingly and place your trusted personnel in key positions and send Doty's people where they belong. They will mess you up given the chance.

Okay Roti, sorry to get on your bad side but our family WAS investigated and are tied into the Daley clan. Your Judge Unlce included! When did you ever work in Narcotics, Vise, Asset Forefeiture, Intelligence? Never!! You have never worked in any of the units you oversee. You were Commander of Narcotics briefly and your Lieuteanants ran the unit. You just did paperwork because you didn't have a clue! Now you are the Deputy Chief? What District did you Command? None! But you are qualified to oversee deploying people to Disricts in need? Give me a fucking break! Smells like clout mixed with mob mixed with kiss ass!

Hey that's not nice, besides Bruce is no dummy he knows that Doty put those people in to run things right, and they do. Doty set that place up to run by itself so why would Bruce fix it if it is not broke. The best thing Doty did was boot your ass out so stop thinking about 021 and worry about your sorry ass.

The best thing Doty did was put in his papers after being threatened with demotion to LT and a return to 015! If he did such a great job why did he get forced out ?
...the quietest District on the Southside; it practically runs itself...
Its going to run itself into oblivion say bye bye to 021 by October, you randy prairie dogs you! 002 and 003 is waiting for you!

What do you mean carry the district? What do you mean stats? 021 is always at the bottom of the barrel arrest activity wise! Or are you counting the agg battery of a U of C/off duty CPD guy by two of your ex 006 tact po's !

Roti was the Commander of Gang Intell for a while under Cline. He became the Narc Commander under J Fed. That Judge is not his uncle and you are fucking ignorant. Were you even on the job when Cline was the Supe? Jesus your stupid. Hey according to this guy all Hispanics named Rodriguez are heavy because their Uncle was the former Supe. All the Blacks named Jackson are related to Jimmie Jackson.

I agree wholeheartedly. John Martin, a great guy, a good man and an excellent white shirt. If roles had been reversed, John Martin would have given Leroy Martin the opportunity to have a graceful exit, even if he did not care much for him.

Is John still this side of the great divide? I sure hope so.

I don't know his resume I've just had my head out my ass for a while now, maybe you should consider doing the same. Sorry I can't name a great Roti arrest, but that is because this isn't LA Confidential, and your name and picture aren't in the paper when you make great arrests. Let's make you a Commander, because obviously you feel you deserve it.

He called in a Commander (I believe former 020th DC Martarano) to 11th and State. He told the DC, "I got some bad news for you. You are being reassigned to the rank of Lieutenant... Martarano told Martin that he was only 2 months shy of being vested for his Gold Braid pension. Martin said, "Well, this REALLY IS bad news for you then!"

As much as Martarano tried to bargain with Martin to try to get in those last couple months as an exempt, Martin stood firm and dumped him to Field Lieutenant. If memory serves me, he retired instead. Boo Hoo!
8/01/2009 03:11:00 AM




First of all, Martorano was named by Rodriquez, who followed Martin.

Second, your whole post is BS, Andy retired as a Commander and bought a bar in 016. He wanted to leave and didn't want to be elevated.

Do some fact checking at a minimum before you post.

8/01/2009 07:56:00 AM

Why don't you BOTH do a little fact checking.
Why did Andy Martorano retire as Commander of 020th District at the RIPE OLD AGE of WHAT, 53...54??!!

To CO-OWN a bar on Milwaukee Ave., with a man who was the biggest bookie on the Chicago Police Dept. before he retired?????
REALLY??!!!!

Is that what you believe???

A couple clues to point you in the right direction.

1. William Hanhardt
2. Robbery/Theft from jewelry salesmen
3. The coinciding retirement of Lt. Nick Nickeas of A3
4. The "unnamed and unknown" NOT indicted in the case.
