Cars Lost? Not Lost?
Last week a bunch of people lost the take home cars that are costing the City hundreds of thousands, maybe a few million dollars. Now rumors are floating in that the truly favored didn't lose a thing. From the comments:
- As promised the city/cpd took away a lot of take home cars, the criteria was those without call out responsibilities don't need a take home car. They are probably right in most cases BUT
As predicted several still have there cars who probably shouldn't, for example.
A K-9 sgt that lives south and travels everyday to O'Hare and sits in an office and runs the kennels, she doesn't have a dog, what call out responsibilities does she have?
How do the Lt's at the academy lose their cars but a certain SGT at the academy who is the brother of a certain ADS, formerly commander of 18 still keep his? When is he going to be called out?
Sure maybe I maybe whining but the department again shows if you know the right people the rules don't apply. I am sure there are other examples that can be presented...
We heard the various civilian directors lost cars. Commanders who don't have call out responsibilities like 35th Street Admin spots and Elton John fans. Commanding Officers of some of the smaller units, too, along with people who use confiscated cars as personal transportation. We certainly hope this is enough to put Shortshank's Olympic dreams over the top with a bit left over to grant everyone a nice raise.
