The Arrogance of Command

The stories are flying hot and heavy out of the 011th District.

We've gotten stories about Penny demanding people leap to attention when she walks into the room. We've got eyewitness of accounts that she has been afflicted with "J-Fed-itis" where she can't even be bothered to return the polite greetings of "Hello Commander" to entire watches going in to checkoff. We've gotten word that no one can smoke at all, even in the face of General Orders that only specify "out of public view." Now comes the latest in a string of what we shall now call "Penny-isms:"
  • On 20 August, Vice President Biden was in town to give away millions of our tax money to Mt. Sinai Hospital. No big deal, that's what Vice Presidents do. But the Detail was short personnel - lots of personnel. So the 011 District was forced to surrender 6 cars to the detail for 4 hours. That ended up being a quarter of the manpower on the street. The backlog was instantaneous and huge.
  • In the midst of this, Commander Henny Penny's staff asks for a car for a "station assignment." The Watch Commander rightfully refuses and notes that there are at least a dozen sworn in the front office, review, timekeeping and CAPS that can do a station run. Henny Penny gets word of this, runs to the Watch Commander's office and rips him a new one in front of officers, supervisors and civilians alike, out loud and in public.
  • She tells the Watch Commander that these are HER cars and if SHE wants one for a "station assignment" then SHE is going to damn well get one. After all, her brand new car isn't going to drive itself up from 51st and Wentworth, is it?
  • That's right SCC, it was all over a new car! 011 is in a backlog every day, but stealing six cars for a detail and then demanding another car to go pick up an exempt vehicle is the height of stupidity. Officer safety be damned, if Henny Penny needs a car to get a car, she's going to get a car or else! And the first call she goes to in her brand new ride? The shots fired/barricade on Madison where she didn't bring along her vest or her star! Help SCC!!! Save our District!!! Someone ask Jimmy Jackson what we did to deserve this!
Un-fucking-believable. What hath J-Fed wrought?

It looks like 011 (which use to be one of the best places to work, mostly because of the bosses) is turning into 003 very quickly. The lower bosses, if willing, can only stick up for the troops so long and so much. This new Commander is going to be looking at 30 vacancies if she doesn't settle down. The damage for me would already be done if I worked there I would be putting in a PAR form.

We could use some of you young guys up north, you are more than welcome!

Could this be what they teach in exempt "charm school" ; don't acknowledge your subordinates, belittle your cadre, and demand boot camp discipline from all. Perhaps this is the "Quantico" way? "Now go out and treat the public nicely!"

I would advise everyone in 011 read the general orders relative to gender and race discrimination and the process of filing a EEOC complaint. Don't forget about plain old professionalism and respect. Don't be afraid to lodge a CR when you have cause and use that EEOC system as it takes it completely out of the hands of the department. Racist, sexist, abusive ignorant bullies cannot be tolerated. Stand up for yourselves and use the tools that are in place to defend yourselves against being abused and discriminated against in the workplace.

Having this joke of a commander in charge is just a continuation of the signals from 35th street that they don't want us to do anything and just be the report police. Why else would they put someone like that in charge of 011? They knew who she was. They knew that the guys there would slow down under her rule. Dugan has been around for a long time he knows the damage she will do to 011. I will never look this joke of a commander in the eye and do nothing until she leaves. Thanks Dugan!!!!

Accoring to what's written here, giving up 6 cars for the Biden detail was not her call or her fault. Asking for a car off the street to go get her car was a mistake. Going into the W/C office to rip him a new one, if it happened the way you say it did, was wrong. Just my opinion.

Hang in there Penny. To hell with them all. Tell your officers to get their thumb out of their asses and actually do something about the fucking crime in the district. If I took a poll, I would probably find that most, if not all, of the officers working in 11 are there becuase they want to be. Why is that? The have not had an inpact on crime in that district for years. So I say fuck them all and thell them to do some fucking work for a change. The assholes on the street in 11 have been there for years and if these fucking officers can't control thses shitheads' behavior by now, they whould just leave this fucking job and grab a mop.

They are all conducting lawful business on the public way and I will not violate someones civil rights for your BS numbers!!! As far as I am concerned that hotspot you love to throw out at us is like a ghost town so no need to get a dispersal or event number, and people that are WALKING by are conduct legit business, at least that is what my To-From will read.

Off Topic:

I guess being an alderman has it's perks...currently there is a man named Wilfredo Gines who has been reported missing after he hasn't been seen for a few days. No problem with making a report about him being missing but the kicker is that he wasn't reported missing by HIS WIFE but by the grandmother of his children (not his mother in law) who is...Alderman JoAnn Thompson.

From what I heard she called the mayor..who directed Weis..who directed Jackson..who directed Byrne..who directed Wysinger..who directed Walsh to put at least eight detectives on the case to look for this man who is only the daddy of this alderman grandchildren. And they made it an immediate action.

I bet if he's found dead somewhere outside of the city they are going to direct us to handle that investigation.

I love the no smoking rule... sorry old asses, this is a new, health oriented department... your 300 lb guts with a 25 year old vest cover with chocolate stains that hasnt closed in a decade are not going to cut it! The old "I have bad knees thats why Im a slob" excuses have run their course and are rightfully falling on deaf ears! It is embarrassing to see some of you clowns showing up 30 minutes late to a priority 1 job, act as if someone did something wrong for calling 911 for a burglar, barely be able to make it up the stairs to the first floor unit just in time to give it a 19-paul without as much as ringing the door bell!!! But then you cant get that cigarette in your mouth fast enough! People notice and it is pretty god damn embarrassing to have to make excuses for these slobs every day... So I have stopped... When John Citizen inquires, I now reply "that guy is a lazy slob... there are some left but they are a dying breed...literally!" and that usually gets a good laugh... I see it every damn day and I frankly wish J-fed would come up with some sort of fitness standard like the efficiency standard... tie in step raises with physical health! Like it or not, being unhealthy not only puts you at risk, but puts those we are sworn to protect at risk! There are spots for the slobs on this job... it's called front office...or review... or lockup... or desk... any where but not on the streets!!!

I've worked in 011 for 15 years. I have my own reasons. I don't understand why everyone thinks this woman will be the death of 011. We've had shitty supervisors for the last ten years. Look at those 3rd watch sgts. Fuck it..look at all those sgts. I can't name 5 I'd let write a simple battery case report. The great JA that everyone was praising in another thread...does anyone remember his first night in 011? He showed up 2 days after Mike Gordon was killed and called P.O.'s COWARDS at roll call for not wearing stars or name tags. Capt Pineapple Face? That crazy Lieut. that dates Judge Gaughn? Every decent sgt stays 6 months to a years and then jets to a unit. Supervision in 011 has sucked for years.

Lieut G.D. seems to be a decent enough man, I just don't know him that well. There's a new lieut on 1st watch that seems decent too. Therefore should be in a unit soon.

8/22/2009 01:53:00 AM

1. The point IS NOT that it was her fault that 6 cars were detailed. The point IS that those cars were detailed, leaving 6 fewer cars in 011 to handle patrol duties. That's something like a 25% cut in manpower from the get-go.
2. Yes, it was. And the manner in which it was done is inexcusable. Because she took ANOTHER car off the street to drive her.
3. It did happen that way. Anyone in 011 within earshot can verify.

For anyone who doubts that the coppers in 011 were hard workers, or those in command who said that the past commander wasn't doing anything, look no further than the citywide performance stats. 011 leads the city in arrests. Not MSF. Not TRU. But 011. Check it out yourselves. Its not the district or the commander's fault if the crime is more than we can handle, but it doesn't mean we are doing nothing and it doesn't mean our commander wasn't working hard too.

Why have all these records if you are going to ignore them when you want to and use them against us when you see fit? I don't get it. Well check the stats in 3 months and figure out what you are going to do. Maybe you'll have to dump this new commander too because I don't think the numbers will be what they were when she wasn't there.

The story sounds a little exaggerated for the benefit of this blog......

8/22/2009 08:46:00 AM

No. It's not at all exaggerated. Told us we must standing when she enters the room the first week she was here. POs on at least 2 watches are ignored regularly when saying hello, or when a group is standing in the hallway (to check off) and she walks right by them without making eye contact OR saying anything. And Thursday was one hell of a day, and everything written there is true. You could hear her screaming in the office (same as she was screaming on the radio her first or second day on the job). Not at all exaggerated. All true.

Fuck this Bitch.

#1 DO NOT even acknowledge her when you see her. If she doesn't want to even give the COMMON COURTESY to say "hi" back then let her wonder why NO ONE will even acknowledge her.

#2 Numbers do not lie and NO BOSS can make us do anything...especially WITHOUT a contract! Downtown will start wondering why 011 is down arrests. Answer your jobs. Thats it.

#3 If this keeps up....BID OUT. If Jfed is dumb enough to screw the hardest working police in the city and won't fix his mess up with Penny...then a mass exit should do the trick!!

8/22/2009 08:10:00 AM

Disagree.

The excuse for dumping the past Commander was 'increased crime'.

Make it your business to ensure the numbers don't lie.

Agg batts went up in 011 under Penny? Oh, drat. Burglaries soared? Darn. Assaults are on the rise? Heaven forbid! Refuse to minimize, no matter how silly the report.

Kill her career with numbers like 011 hasn't seen in ten years, before the vacant lots sprouted like daisies.

Take her down the right way.

Don't worry, girl. You need my counseling. At this point, it's too early to say if you will require daily medication. A transfer to a cubicle at Fort Fellatio is a given.

We'll meet at our usual spot in Garfield Park at high noon tomorrow. I'll be parked outside the Gold Dome wearing my signature chartreuse jumpsuit. I'll bring a few brown-bagged, ice cold 40-ouncers.

You're delusional. She was never "nice" she was always a tyrant. Always talked down to people - officers only that is.

It seems like the people who are promoted past the actual rank they themselves believe they should be, act nasty toward people under them. Its as if they are trying to denounce their own feelings of inferiority and being unqualified. Its like they hate the coppers because cops are real and they know that they are fake. Deep shit.

I work in 011 and I for one only answer jobs and don't make arrests unless I have signed complaints. But we can't stick together in 011. There are still to many of the "I need my one rock arrest" and " hey let's hit this dope spot after roll call today" guys in this place. I hope all the guys on 3rd watch wake up and realize that the sub and drop cases are gonna get you fucked up one day and nobody has your back. There are pods everywhere they see you so called drop cases, and sooner or later you will get fucked. 3 hrs of court is not worth losong your job over.

Let me get this straight.

Everyone in 011 is mad because the commander yelled at the watch commander.

Who gives a fuck?

And why are all you suck-asses running around the halls saying, "Hello Commander, Good-day Commander, Glad to see you Commander, You look wonderful today Commander."

In all the places I worked, I couldn't give two shits who the commander was and I'm certain the commanders in all those places didn't give two shits about me. Just like they don't give two shits about you, unless of course you are one of those officers constantly running around looking for the commander's approval.

I never ever said hello to a commander, but then again, I never ever said anything to anyone with a gold star on their chest.

The bosses on this job are shit. Literally. Just like shit, some bosses stink, some are messy and cause you some aggravation, some are hard as stone, some are so smooth that you don't even have to wipe.

But in the end, they all move along and a new one forms right where the old one left.

Worry about something else because this boss will soon move out into the shitter and another stinky shit boss is certainly in your future.

I've worked in 011 for 15 years. I have my own reasons. I don't understand why everyone thinks this woman will be the death of 011. We've had shitty supervisors for the last ten years. Look at those 3rd watch sgts. Fuck it..look at all those sgts. I can't name 5 I'd let write a simple battery case report. The great JA that everyone was praising in another thread...does anyone remember his first night in 011? He showed up 2 days after Mike Gordon was killed and called P.O.'s COWARDS at roll call for not wearing stars or name tags. Capt Pineapple Face? That crazy Lieut. that dates Judge Gaughn? Every decent sgt stays 6 months to a years and then jets to a unit. Supervision in 011 has sucked for years.

Lieut G.D. seems to be a decent enough man, I just don't know him that well. There's a new lieut on 1st watch that seems decent too. Therefore should be in a unit soon.

8/22/2009 10:00:00 AM

The new lieut on 1st watch is decent? S.S.? Are you kidding? He's not the sharpest knife in the drawer, his wife (they scored very close together - perhaps even right next to each other - on the LT exam) even less so. He'll be in a unit soon, but not because he's competent or a nice guy -- it'll be because of clout.

There are some good sgts in 011. 1st watch has several working sgts who have the backs of the POs. 2nd watch isn't all bad, but AZ makes up in bad for what good there is there......

What is with everyone in 011! I have worked in many districts and most of them have had terrible bosses. This is nothing new, most of the bosses are pretty bad all over the city. Everyone is scared, nobody backs you up, bosses talked to the PO's like we are shitheads, you make a mistake you get dumped, and the bosses all want you to drop to your knees when then are around. Oh and by the way, there are hard working coppers all over the city, 011 is not the only district that have working coppers in it, lose the attitude! You don't have to work in the ghetto to be a hard working copper, stop bashing on the rest of us and just do your job!

This is how someone talks who has done nothing on this job and never will.

This is the workout king. He will be a house mouse in 6 months after he finally figures out he can sneak away from his desk every day at headquarters for a two hour workout.

But, because he won't ever do anything on this job, he'll never get in trouble, and that will put him one step closer to promotion. After he sucks enough dick to get a desk job, he'll be another three steps closer to merit.

Total stroke and future boss.

8/22/2009 06:59:00 AM

Go and fuck yourself. Do you work in 011? Are you perhaps that "special person" maybe a female that thinks that all savages cant do any wrong. If anything, the officers that work there everyday try to do the best they can. I say dont leave the district, just answear your jobs and code them accordingly. Why should the officers leave, this new asshat of a commander will eventualy have to leave when she cant come up with some good answears for the low activity. Time will tell. And the reason why crime has not gone down in 011 is partly due the community and not the officers. There are a few decent people that live in that district but for the most part the majority are absolute fucking savages. If they dont like the police so much, why do they call, when baby daddy or baby momma gets shot or staved. This 11 district community will never change, from the time that kids grow up, they have been already trained to act a certain way. The only thing they worry about is getting their free check, free police service, free bullshit lawsuits, nothing they ever do revolves around work. Dont you notice the same group of people hanging out in front of their house all day long. You know there is a reason for that. Last time I drove in other parts of the city I notice that there werent any drunks on every corner of very liquor store, kids hanging out to morning unsuperviced, people getting shot and robbed on a regular basis, meaning everyday. Maybe the fault should be put on the community and not the police. Is it the polices fault that "shanana or Tawana" has five children from five diffent future dancers.

Excuse me while I go off on a rant here. Go fuck yourself assholes! Or maybe it's just one prick trying to come off as a tough guy because I'd hate to think two people are retarded enough to make the two above statements. To Mr. Police Fitness 2009, right now I'm guessing your some tac hair gel clown with maybe 4 years on. Just wait until you knock up the first ho that is actually impressed by your badge. Then you'll marry her cuz it's probably the first piece of ass you've ever gotten. After a couple kids, you'll have to start doing some side jobs. You'll put on weight then get kicked off of tac or whatever Delta Force unit you are on. Coming back to the watch, you'll work with some fat old timer, smoking a cigar. You give him a holier than thou lecture on the evils of tobacco. While your unwrapping your granola bar he'll punch you in the face. You'll cry, then ask to work the desk for the rest of your career. Around this time your wife will divorce you for some guy named Allejandro. You'll end up eating yourself to death at the age of 50.

As for the second post, you must be a civilian or retarded if you think that the police in eleven, or any district in any City in history can change a ghetto into Dolly Land. Police are their to keep the ghetto from turning into an orgy of rape, violence, and total chaos....if the City keeps promoting people like your girlfriend then maybe police will stop even doing that. The only thing that turns a shitty neighborhood into a nice one is Starbucks. So, GFY!

Sorry, but all of the inside jobs are filled with full duty, healthy female officers. In the past, older officers would be re-assigned inside to help them. But alas, young, connected females have all of the desk jobs and secretary jobs. Why you might ask? Clout!

1. The point IS NOT that it was her fault that 6 cars were detailed. The point IS that those cars were detailed, leaving 6 fewer cars in 011 to handle patrol duties. That's something like a 25% cut in manpower from the get-go.
2. Yes, it was. And the manner in which it was done is inexcusable. Because she took ANOTHER car off the street to drive her.
3. It did happen that way. Anyone in 011 within earshot can verify.

Signed,
someone in 011


4. The order says all stations assignments are to be done by admin (inside people). The only good thing Charlie Williams did was to enforce this, first in A4 then as a Dep Sup. He made it clear at a staff meeting. "if the desk whats to eat, then the desk has to get it." When he was A4 Dep Chief and heard a car go down on a station assignment to any where he would call the WC and ask why a beat car was being sent. I never liked the guy but he was correct on this issue. Bad Penny.

It's called respect for your elders. Most of those old timers have forgotten more about being the police than you will ever know. Get off your high-horse, shut your power bar eating mouth, and listen to some of the wisdom they can pass on. Coppers with some wear on the tires can read people very well and can tell who can be trusted and who not to tell "the old war stories" of how to be the police and stay out of trouble.

I guess being an alderman has it's perks...currently there is a man named Wilfredo Gines who has been reported missing after he hasn't been seen for a few days. No problem with making a report about him being missing but the kicker is that he wasn't reported missing by HIS WIFE but by the grandmother of his children (not his mother in law) who is...Alderman JoAnn Thompson.

From what I heard she called the mayor..who directed Weis..who directed Jackson..who directed Byrne..who directed Wysinger..who directed Walsh to put at least eight detectives on the case to look for this man who is only the daddy of this alderman grandchildren. And they made it an immediate action.



Doesn't this guy live outside of the city or is he from 61/rockwell? How can you report him missing from chicago if he doesn't live here or was last seen here? Reports said this guy lived in Chicago Heights and went Indiana for gas.

You whiners need to quit with the needless embellishments here on the new Cmdr. and give her a chance. Lots of my buddies work in 011, and they tell me that nothing has changed since the switchup of command has occurred.
Everyone knows coppers don't like change, and everyone knows female bosses have it rougher than their male counterparts. If you're so unhappy, get the PAR forms rolling.
Everyone should also know that there isn't much room to move around in this Dept. anymore.
Has anyone noticed how small the transfer orders have gotten over the past few periods? No indians left to move around the board!
Do your job, and do it the way it's supposed to be done.
And 011 doesn't lead the city in arrests, and hasn't for some time.

"The Arrogance of Command" is so appropriate.

Not all, but I would say that around two-thirds of all the bosses I have had, from sgts on up, hid behind their rank because they were unable to be true leaders.

It is pathetic to see how they protect each other.

They really and trully feel they are "exempt" from the G.O.'s and can do whatever the fuck they want.

Some asshole captain in a southside district thinks that because he is a captain he can fuck with whoever he wants whenever he wants because he has "rank". This guy absolutely hates this blog. No, he despises this blog and anyone who reads it.

His view towards blue shirts who get screwed over by the department is: suck it up, or man-up and just take it - afterall that is what you signed up for. Like crap I did. That is not what I signed up for Captain Shithead, sir!

The arrogant attitude, inability to lead, lack of understanding, inexcusable people and management skills, inconsistent applications of the G.O.'s just about describes the clear majority of bosses and exempts.

As for the exempts, I have seen the ordinary patrolman clean-up his act, but not so with the exempts. They still think they are royalty and should be treated as such.

Bullshit! There has got to be somewhere in this god-forsaken department good patrolmen who can lead, manage and supervise. This fucking quota of promoting lame brained, ass kissing, politically connected whites, or blacks, or hispanics, or females has got to stop.

THERE ARE good patrolmen out there from all parts of the city who can do the job, but they get overlooked because the system is not designed to recognized them. However, the "system" will reward the suck-up, clout heavy, clueless cop who feels he/she is owed. Then they get promoted and fuck things up more.

God help this department.

Ok, ok....you can stop your grandstanding. I always find it amazing how those among us, those who have that "phone call" or that relative in an exempt position, begin to panic when their clout is threatened.

I will admit it is fun to watch a person who has been taken care of for all their usually short time on the job to begin to freak out when the rumors start to roam the hallways that so and so is being dumped or demoted. Is the thought of going back on the watch or back out on the street that scary? If it is, then it is you my friend that should quit the job and grab a mop.

But don't get me wrong. I have said and I'll say it again, I never will nor have I ever looked down upon any blue shirt that has clout. If you can find that coveted spot were you don't have to answer any calls or deal with the idiots of this once great city then hurrah for you.

Sorry, but all of the inside jobs are filled with full duty, healthy female officers. In the past, older officers would be re-assigned inside to help them. But alas, young, connected females have all of the desk jobs and secretary jobs. Why you might ask? Clout!

What the fuck are you talking about chump? I am a female officer. I work hard and kick ass. I take no prisoners and I am respected by my male officers and feared by the shit heads.

Women can do anything men can do.

Sorry to hurt your tender, feminine feelings. But unfortunately, look at every unit. Who is behind the desk or answering phones? Truth hurts, honey. Then look at your female leaders.

EVERYONE IN THE 011th DIST PUT IN A PAR FORM! EVERYONE! Ya think 35th St will get the hint? STOP WORKING! Answer your jobs, and thats it.... Nothing more, nothing less.

STICK TOGETHER! The Commander need P/O's more than P/O's need a Commander!

Back in the day I worked in the 025th Dist when Joe Curtain was the Commander. At one time I believe there was 225 PAR forms put in at to bail out. Now Joe was as heavy as one could get (Ed Burke, so he was never demoted, but he did get moved to a spot where he was in charge of 6 people. Hell, they were even blowing up toilets becasue of him. The 025th Dist. Gallows was started because of him, which I would say was a precursor to SSC. Hang in and stick together, there is strength in unity. Keep in mind you are the real police, like any other cops who work throughout this city, and are lead by those who have never been the police. A badge and a gun do not make you the police, it's what is in your heart.

It's nice that you are concerned about your fellow officers physical health. U r correct that more of the "blue" shirts should be more physically fit. But I say that for their own welfare, not so you would accept working with them.

You are in desperate need of an attitude adjustment. I'm guessing you are one of the 5 year wonders who truly believe that they are the real police. You just love to do the running and the gunning. Unfortunately, you have not been on this job long enough to experience the true loss of reality that comes seniority.

There will come a time when you will just be doing your job. It will be that one call you get.....you handle it and code it. Then within days you are notified of a CR#. Let's see, what is the flavor of the day? Ah! Excessive force!

IPRA will investigate and low and behold, they produce a finding of SUSTAINED! Oh lordy, now what? Ah, what's taking a couple of days mean to a hard charger like yourself? Then.....just when you think it's over....you get whacked with the lawsuit!

Oh shit! This can't be happening. Not to ME! You call the FOP and they give you the standard line of "don't worry kid, everything will be ok." You meet with your FOP appointed lawyer and he tells you that they other party is seeking a huge settlement with the city. Oh, and the best part is that you get stuck paying the punitive damages.

But, when all the dust settles and by the grace of GOD you hang onto your job, you can just go right back out there and continue to run and gun because you sir, are the REAL POLICE.

I love the no smoking rule... sorry old asses, this is a new, health oriented department... your 300 lb guts with a 25 year old vest cover with chocolate stains that hasnt closed in a decade are not going to cut it! The old "I have bad knees thats why Im a slob" excuses have run their course and are rightfully falling on deaf ears! It is embarrassing to see some of you clowns showing up 30 minutes late to a priority 1 job, act as if someone did something wrong for calling 911 for a burglar, barely be able to make it up the stairs to the first floor unit just in time to give it a 19-paul without as much as ringing the door bell!!! But then you cant get that cigarette in your mouth fast enough! People notice and it is pretty god damn embarrassing to have to make excuses for these slobs every day... So I have stopped... When John Citizen inquires, I now reply "that guy is a lazy slob... there are some left but they are a dying breed...literally!" and that usually gets a good laugh... I see it every damn day and I frankly wish J-fed would come up with some sort of fitness standard like the efficiency standard... tie in step raises with physical health! Like it or not, being unhealthy not only puts you at risk, but puts those we are sworn to protect at risk! There are spots for the slobs on this job... it's called front office...or review... or lockup... or desk... any where but not on the streets!!! Word of advice... you dont wake up one day and all of a sudden you cant see your dick! Reel it in, get a grip, and lose the fucking gut!

Thanks Weis for showing up on the blog. We know you have been here since you became the SUPER.........

Had your botox lately??? How bout those rhoids???

Those "overweight" coppers, who smoke (God forbid) could teach you a thing or a thousand in a heartbeat and would put their lives on the line in a second for any brother or sister in blue.

EXPERIENCE is what it is all about. It isn't about being an Olympian, it is about street smarts, reading the animal in its natural habitat and knowing what to do and when to do it.

I learned much from many an old timer that at (one) time I could out run, out whatever. Nothing compares to experience and skills that are collected over years of experience. So go back and sit in your chair rookie. My hat tip goes out to all those old timers out there, thank you for teaching me to survive out there. You guys and gals rock!!

Finally retired!!! But, I miss you guys and gals everyday. Be safe, back each other up and fuck the politics, go home safe to your loved ones.

That would be unfair because until they pinned on that oak leaf they got their asses kissed everyday.

Hang in there Penny. To hell with them all. Tell your officers to get their thumb out of their asses and actually do something about the fucking crime in the district. If I took a poll, I would probably find that most, if not all, of the officers working in 11 are there becuase they want to be. Why is that? The have not had an inpact on crime in that district for years. So I say fuck them all and thell them to do some fucking work for a change. The assholes on the street in 11 have been there for years and if these fucking officers can't control thses shitheads' behavior by now, they whould just leave this fucking job and grab a mop.

__________________________________

Another fucking boss talking out of their ass.

You know what go screw yourself.

You and all of the other "golden children" you don't like the job we are doing? You go do it, ass-hat.

What are you going to do? Deny me time? Put me on midnights? Change my start times? Fuck with me? I am not worried about losing my $142,000.00 spot! It is no sweat off of my nose! I won't have to adjust my budget to plug the hole if I get dumped!

WHEN WILL YOU UN-EDUCATED BOSSES GET IT THROUGH YOUR THICK SKULLS THAT IF ALL OF YOU BAND TOGETHER AND TREAT THE P.O.'S FAIRLY AND EVENLY, YOU WON'T HAVE TO WORRY ABOUT LOSING YOUR SPOTS! THE MAJORITY OF COPS WILL COME AROUND AND WORK FOR YOU.

Despite what is said here, there are good cops who will work but are tired of this exempt "can't touch me" attitude.

But you don't get, you just fucking don't get it, do you? Many books on management and leadership will tell you to reward, reward, reward and you will get results. Instead, the ignorant bosses out there think arrogance is the way to get results.

So, for now, it is the 1st &16th, baby! And there is not a thing you can do about it. If you don't get results and improve you numbers for J-Fed and Mayor Thieves, I don't get dumped you do. I am not worried about losing my BIG salary. You are. I am living within my lowly D1 pay and what miss the 70K extra. You will.

Why not try using dignity and respect? You will get better results.

Oh, and the threat of me not being able to control these shitheads is not on me. It is on you. Back up your officers. Don't be such suck-ups to the ones making wacky complaints. Support your cops, because if you don't, I am not quitting. I don't need to pick-up a mop. I will still be around for the 1st and 16th. And you? You will be wondering how long you will keep your command.

Try something new and positive for a change.

To you bosses who are doing this, I say thanks. There are only a few of you, but the troops know who you are and respect you.

Triva question:

What was the name of James Bond's secretary?

8/22/2009 08:27:00 PM

He did not have one, but M did. Her name was Miss Money Penny.
