You Fucking Idiots

Honest to god, the Chicago Police Department could fuck up a one-car-funeral. Who the fuck was leading this expedition of mentally-challenged sorry excuses for police officers? You can see at least one of them holding the camera and another right there in the front row:



What the hell? How do you even begin to defend something like this? You can't. It's impossible. That isn't a world record grizzly bear being put on display there - it's a prisoner, in handcuffs, and the subject of what is probably the largest General Order in existence for the Chicago Police Department (Processing Persons Under Department Control). And he's being posed in front of a group of Chicago Police who were on loan to Pittsburgh for the G-20 summit. Is this fucking Abu Ghraib? Was that your BIG arrest for the entire trip? A 150-pound nimrod?

You are ambassadors of the goddamned Department and you were being paid time-and-a-half for a 12 hour a day. Who the fuck do you think you are and what the hell did you think you were doing? You are embarrassments. And the white shirts taking the pictures and posing in the front row? You are disgraces of the highest order.

We hope each and every cop there takes heavy time and each supervisor gets fired. You fucking idiots make it all that harder on the rest of us trying to serve out an honorable career.

There were posts galore here, imploring people NOT to sign up for this trek, but no; they HAD to go and do it anyway.

We just KNEW something would go badly there. And it did.

Scc, I was in Pittsburgh for the G-20 summit. I'm very happy to say that myself and about 60 or 70 PO's and bosses were assigned to days. We didn't fuck up anything!! So for everybody reading this, not everybody that attended the trip acted like foolish assholes. Please keep that in mind.

I just wanted to say that 15OCT09 is the day i unofficailly retired. I've only got but 8 years on, but i just can't take the beating anymore.
It's just not worth it. Going out there trying to work and improve the quality of life for the decent hard working people and getting nothing in return and no back up from the bosses or public.

This job is not what i thought it was going to be. Even for someone like me that really wants to work, you just can't. You constantly get beat down. By the people, media, bosses. It's just not worth it. I guess it took me a while, but i see the light. Just answer your calls, enjoy your cup of coffee and call it a day. The laws are not trying to help us, they're restricting our every action and giving tons of power to the criminal and gang bangers. There's not much we can do anymore.
There is no fear and no more respect. They can tell a cop to go fuck themselves and there's not a damn thing we can do about. Legally and without getting thrown under the Jfed buss.
Camara's everywhere, citizens just waiting to complain and get their 15 minutes of fame tarnishing a hard working cops career b/c they thing they might have saw/heard something the cop might have done.
I thought when i came on the public was going to have our backs. I thought the bosses would see that we were out there trying and with the best of intentions on cleaning up crime and realize that sometimes things need to be done that aren't exactly by general order.
Everyone is scared of everyone and nobody has any balls anymore. You want to work out there get ready to get sued and possibly lose your house and saving to some shit bag.
I've seen the light. Took me about 8 years, but i see the light.
To all those people i thought were dogs, i'm sorry. You are actually the smart ones.

Oh my God!!!!!!! It's getting harder and harder to defend this Department. When will officers catch on that camera's are everywhere. It' goes without saying that at a large protest such as this, where the participants are anti-police, that they are going to be filming your every move waiting for you to f**k up. Sh*t is going to happen but don't serve yourselves up to them on a silver platter. I'm sure Pittsburgh appreciates it too. Didn't we learn everything from the Sgt. that posed in front of the airliner? Not to mention that because of that incident officers aren't aloud to film or take photographs concerning police matters. We've moved beyond black eyes, we don't have any eyes left, and are now moving into brain damage territory.

I saw this on a blog a few weeks ago called "The Agitator".

The writer covers police and prosecutorial silliness from a libertarian perspective. Stuff like prosecutors charging 17 year old girls as sex criminals for texting naked pics to their boyfriends.

I didn't pay much attention and didn't realize this video was CPD. I just read the story and didn't look at the video.

I assumed it was dumbass Pittsburgh cops. My bad.

As for the CPD member and possibly CCSPD member involved, I thought I saw their patch on the officer near the end of the video, they do deserve to be disciplined.

There were at least two supervisors involved and they deserve severe discipline. Termination? I hate to say it but.........

If you want to act like an out of control asshole retire and take a security guard job at the House of Blues.

Too many CPD members who go on these out of town details view it as a big fucking party. I went on one only because I needed the cash and to get away from my now ex wife.

I saw more cops drinking that I expect to see when JFED leaves or "Da Mare" departs this world.

The only out for these guys is that that is not the entire group that went to pittsburg that is only a part of it. now the problem for iad is trying to figure out who was indeed in the picture... which is gonna be pretty damn hard. if there was a documented arrest then the arresting officer will take some time(enjoy the time off, this job isnt worth the heartache, ill be sure to buy a ticket for the benefit.. it made me laugh!) the cr will go no where.. they will get a few scapegoats to take some time and that will be that. funny stuff... unprofessional, but funny. have fun boys and girls and stay safe.

Did they give the arrestee/future lottery winner his CUSTOMER SATISFACTION SURVEY card?

“You have just had contact with a Chicago Police Officer(s). We encourage you to report your satisfaction or dissatisfaction with how you were treated by calling, 1-888-648-3988 or by going to the following web address: http://survey.crj.uic.edu/Web

I saw the 26 second video. Even if he gets a low sum of say $26,000.00 in a lawsuit, that is $1,000.00 a second. Not bad money for a stereotypical most likely unemployed anarchist/environmentalist/skateboarder/hipster-dufas!

I understand the guy's wanting to memorialize, with a "photo-op", their trip with the group photo..BUT TIMES CHANGE.THIS IS NOT YOUR FATHER'S POLICE DEPARTMENT ANYMORE!

Point of order:

Do you realize how EASY it is to get on the Chicago Police Department?

Yea, that bullsh*t test we all took? It was written at a *9TH GRADE* reading level. Same for the Fire Dept test.

That's right. The PATHETICALLY LOW testing standards enables the City to hire enough minorities to keep the play revs off it's back.

Unfortunately, this also leads to hiring some of the more mentally-challenged amongst us (e.g. the Burger Queen).

Now I'm not suggesting that the police test should require Mensa-level I.Q. I'm merely asking that the test weed out candidates who should, properly, be bagging groceries for a living.

Is that too much to ask?

Well SCC, you should know that there was approx 140 CPD personnel deployed to this event. The video only shows about 15 officers and a few supervisors. (about 20 total)

So I would ask you to take that broad roller-brush you're painting with there and trade it in for a detail tool.

And a summary of some of the deleted comments with rebuttals:

1) We aren't guessing at who it is so stop with the speculation about what watch or district they're from.

2) This was posted on BreakingNews.com most of the afternoon and evening and still appears on the Tribune front page. The media had it and was running with it for half-a-day before we even knew about it. Don't blame the blog for the stupidity of idiots.

3) We didn't say punish everyone who was at the G-20 you fucking illiterate moron. Go read it again. Asshat

4) To the person who says "arresting officers shall be photographed with their arrestees," show us the part where it says "the prisoner shall be on their knees." Nice try for originality, but that isn't a justification for what happened there. This isn't a OCD trophy photo with 20 guns and 200 kilos. If that was a "processing" photo, it's paper jumping of the worst order.

Two Words: "Hair Gels".

I'll bet that when all is said and done, every stupid fucking P.O. that is ultimately identified and disciplined has 5 years or less on the job at the time of this latest embarrassment to the department.

And as far as any supervisors being disciplined, my bet says none suffer any such wrath; most of the "bosses" that volunteered for this gig were clout-heavy and were offered this chance at extra cash before the non-clouted. Those without the required "being on furlo to participate" stipulation simply had their furlos pushed back to accomodate their greed.

IF this proves to be legitimate in the sense that it wasn't a staged photo-op, I sincerely hope heads roll. It'll be the first time ever that I WON'T buy benefit tickets for a fellow copper.

But each of us, at some point in their career, finally sees the light and for you this is the moment.The most important thing you can do on this job is just to survive each day to go home to your family.

The Liberals of this city had long ago stormed the castle and took it over. What you see before you today is the result of their care taking. The people have finally gotten the police force that they have demanded.

So you officially retired at 8 years on the job. But of course you will collect your salary and benefits uninterrupted. You won't have any interruptions in those, because the theory goes, "if you don't do nothing, you do nothing wrong."

I've seen worse, er, well not actually seen worse, however, I've heard of much worse things occuring with an arrestee. It violates one GO, but the hippie doesn't seem to be any worse for the wear!

Bottom line: During my short tenure as a sergeant, promoted from the list by test score, I've occasionally had to take a unpopular position the guys didn't fully agree with which kept us in compliance with Department policy and out of the shit. Of course thats because I new what the orders were in the first place, and tempered with common sense, applied them to a real life situation. And when I saw the dept. notice for the time-and-one-half road trip tp Philly, and who was accepting the application, I realized there was no way I would be selected to go! Good luck clout bosses. I hope the money was real good! Private lawyers tend to be expensive.

Wrong? Yes.
Stupid? Incredibly.
Worthy of punishment? Yes
Fireable? No.

The impulsive action to take a picture with a jovial arrestee was a bad idea under the circumstances. I say this because we have all heard the speeches about cameras and we all watch the news. But the condemnation and cries for “heads on platters” equals those doing such to any west side mutt who gets in front of the news camera claiming “they shot him down like a dog!”.

Was there any reason to do this? No. Despite the fact that journalist major Kramer was enjoying every second of his arrest experience, the picture and aftermath just paid his College Education since the pay outs are automatic. But I am happy that it goes to someone who is not dealing, robbing, stealing, and trying to turn his life around to take care of his 3 year old baby. Kramer actually IS working towards something. And as in all Police cases, the dollar tree grew when the lawyer called to plant the seed.

Before any of you short minded people refer to me as an “asshat” and spew your contempt for everything and everyone bear in mind a couple of things. All you do is write of how fucked up the department is and how inept the bosses are, how overworked and under supported you are. However, the bulk of the “entitlement generation” patrolmen that are on this job bitch, cry, and moan when they are told so much as to direct traffic at an accident scene. So many comment on the actions of those who "do" while sitting comfortably in their cars just barely answering calls and spending more time deriving ways to avoid work. This is a great job. If you think otherwise, go work for a living.

Back to the topic at had, the pic---pay the kids schooling and lawyer, let him spring-board his career in journalism, lay down a few suspensions, and move along. The kid wasn’t beaten, he willingly participated and enjoyed his experience until the lawyer called. Curious to know whose idea the kneeling action was? As for bad press, stop watching the news or reading the paper because that’s all there is. Disagree with that, answer this — Aside for stories of Policemen saving people from burning buildings before fire wakes up and gets to the scene, how many other positive stories are reported about us? I’ll give you a hint, it’s a low number.

SCC,

I think that yo have gone off half cocked here. This is similar to what the public saw of th Rodney King arrest in LA some years ago. You have no idea who the schmuck is in the photo, you cannot see the handcuffs in the video, if there are any at all and for al you know, junior slid into the phot that a Sgt was taking of his platoon.

Unlike you to not get all the facts before you post a topic. I agree that the picture itself is in bad taste, but to liken it to an Iraqi prison photgraph is unfathomable.

And by the way, you should also research words prior to using them, a Nimrod is a skilled hunter, not an oaf or idiot as you seem to think it means.

Just saying!

Parents need to step up
Looks like the Rev. Jesse Jackson has another brainstorm. He wants parents trained to do police work, to protect students. Maybe Jackson could advise parents to walk their children to school. The city cannot afford to pay parents to do what they are supposed to do, such as being a parent.

If people have no clue how to raise a child, then don't have children. The police in Chicago are overburdened and do a great job with what they have. Recently, people were complaining about the police having a pension. What other jobs do you lose weekends, work undesirable hours and risk your life for people who in this day and age are ungrateful? Maybe if parents were parents, and the parents let teachers discipline the troublemakers, the school system could be better.

Point of order:

Do you realize how EASY it is to get on the Chicago Police Department?

Yea, that bullsh*t test we all took? It was written at a *9TH GRADE* reading level. Same for the Fire Dept test.

That's right. The PATHETICALLY LOW testing standards enables the City to hire enough minorities to keep the play revs off it's back.

Unfortunately, this also leads to hiring some of the more mentally-challenged amongst us (e.g. the Burger Queen).

Now I'm not suggesting that the police test should require Mensa-level I.Q. I'm merely asking that the test weed out candidates who should, properly, be bagging groceries for a living.

Is that too much to ask?

Guys, Kyle Kramer can’t sue, he's a paid informant for the fed. This case is FEDERAL CIVIL RIGHTS. Take a look at What Pat has drafted:

***DRAFT OF USA NORTHERN ILLINOIS**
#### ####
Department of Justice Press Release
########
For Immediate Release
October 16, 2009 United States Attorney's Office
Northern District of Illinois: 312-745-6100.

Chicago Police Department Detachment FRANK UNCLE (FU - fuck ups) (Officers; A, B, C... Sergeants; A, B, C, ..)et al. On temporary assigned to Pittsburgh as Deputy Marshals to assist Pittsburg Police were indicted today for violations of the civil rights of one Kyle Kramer.

Detachment FU et al. were indicted for Civil Rights Violations of one
Kyle Kramer (known pacifist, church going, straight A student, who happened to be an applicant to the FBI) for abuse of sworn authority (Federal and State), degrading actions, and conduct unbecoming.

CHICAGO, IL —United States Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald announced that Detachment FU et al., were indicted for a civil rights violation late yesterday evening by a federal grand jury.

Witness Testimony AND Detachment FU's own electronic recordings established that on the night of October 5, 2009, Detachment FU, while on duty as a police officers and sworn as Deputy Federal Marshals, denied Kyle Kramer his civil rights.

U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald stated: “Those who are commissioned to enforce the law must be completely obedient to the law. The officers committed a heinous and despicably, cowardly act by degrading another human being. Most law enforcement officers discharge their duties faithfully. These defendant officers (Detachment FU) ignored their oaths (both federal and state) and abused the trust that we place in commissioned officers. Detachment FU deserves the maximum sentence allowed by law.”

Detachment FU face a maximum of 12 months' imprisonment, a fine of not more than $100,000.00, and a term of not more than one year of supervised release following confinement. Sentencing in federal court is determined by the discretion of federal judges and the governing statute. Parole has been abolished in the federal system. Fitzgerald also noted that interdepartmental termination proceedings have begun against detachment FU, lead by former FBI Special Agent Jody Weez, temporarily assigned to the Chicago Police Department as Superintendent.

This case was investigated by the Federal Bureau of Investigation and will be prosecuted by Assistant U.S. Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald.

...green, untested and inexperienced supervision.

This is the wave of the future and sadly the future is now.

This type of thing has been popping up with some regularity as some stalwart commentators and those who monitor the blog with good intent can attest.

Police Officers allowed to put themselves in harms way without seasoned enough supervision capable of saying "whoa, wait a minute." Or worse yet unseasoned supervision putting Police Officers in situations where they could be exposed to grievious personal, legal and financial harm.

We don't excuse the P/O's either... they should know better. We agree with the elder subject matter experts who say "work the job like you're on your own." Common sense took a brief hiatus and everyone SHOULD take a deep breath and look at the bigger picture. Is this a "hanging" offense? Not necessarily, but j-fart will see to it that it is. His peculiar brand of justice is most certainly unleavened with any notion of mercy whatsoever.

These Officers are doomed. Their actions did bring discredit and unwanted negative attention upon us when we least need it.

Back to the question of supervision...

We've always said...

Absolutely NO tact/gang/city-wide unit or promotion to detective, e/t or FTO/Patrol Specialist unless a MINIMUM of 10 years in a beatcar. the only exception acceptable would be if one made their first hashmark in the ghetto... pushing a beat car.

No promotion to Sergeant unless 15 yoj of which the last three consecutive MUST HAVE BEEN IN PATROL... PERIOD. (Hint: inside track for FTO's who are PROVEN teachers/mentors.)

No promotion to Lieutenant unless 20 yoj of which the last five consecutive MUST HAVE BEEN IN PATROL...

No crying to your clout! You can blow whoever under their desk and contribute ass & or filthy lucre to whatever political/ethnic/church based organization your little heart desires. The greatest equalizer is having to put your time in!

The powers that be are busy trying to erase any collective/institutional memory of being "The Police" which is why they're pushing to put these YOUNG pliable POLICE MANAGERS (sorry... the title of BOSS has to be earned)in positions of authority where they could conceivably stay for 20 to 25 years. THIS is where you get the abuse of rank and furtherance of subverting/disregarding the bargaining agreement.

Not to say that 42 extra-short doesn't have hundreds of lawyers already dedicated to that task so as to provide flimsy legal cover for the above orchestrated acts.

...The race to the bottom continues.

Our apologies for the long post SCC...

Some learn faster than most, many learn at varying stages of the journey, and some never learn.

If working brings you a sense of personal pride, then so be it, but be aware, the department, the city and most of the citizens do not give a darn about you or your work. Plus, you are in a minority with an ever decreasing number.

Also, it is not an all or nothing matter. You can still be professional and non-attitudinal and still do your job, while, at the same time, exercising discernment and care as to where and when you perform the undefinable above and beyond.

Stay safe and stay together.

While I for one will be glad to see the WEISel leave, I suspect incidents like this (the 'imposter' in 003) and other embarrassments will bring a smile to WEISel's face as he bolts for the door in the near future, with the remainber of his contract ($ from Shortshanks) in hand.

To the unoffically retired PO of 15Oct09, I feel your pain. I offically retired. The laws are NOT for us and the harding working citizens, there for the shit bags and the Mayor. You see those shit bags will file a complaint and your shit bag Mayor will pay them off because its easier to pay than fight. But it also will reflect on you through a CR. CAPS is a bullshi-- and always has been. The writing was on the wall since its beginning. It's too bad its not like to good old days when the Police spoke, the citizens obeyed. When the Police asked for the corner, they got it. When the Police appeared, the streets were cleared. Now the shit bags found a good way in getting money, at no cost to them, but will mare the reputation of a good working PO. The city of Chicago is better off policing themselves (citizens), just call us to do a report. Its a no win, no win situation. Let Jackson and all the other so call leaders, deputize citizens and sit back and watch how many complaints and law suits regarding the police are filed. Let the citizens fight each other, because thats want happening now. The day I retired, my car was packed. I signed my papers at Human Resources, got into my car and drove out of this state for a new life. Guess what? There are places you can go other than Chicago that are safer, friendlier, less taxes, better citizens, tuffer laws, better roads, call the police - arrive in 2-3 minutes. Why are you there with the graff, high taxes, no work support, rapid multipling of shit bags, bad weather, bad city services, crime everwhere and unsafe. Good Luck - I would leave.

"Protesting is so last year on October 16, 2009 10:41 AM

You protest, you get arrested, that how it works. Protesting only works, when you get arrested. If there is no reaction to your protest, then the symbolism is lost, its just a parade.

The strange thing about non-violence protest is that it relies on violence for the message for impact. If people protest and the police did nothing, there would be nothing to write about. The only way it gets news play is if there is violence.

If you are an educated college kid who really wants to make a difference, get involved with policy, learn the system and influence it.

Going to a G20 summit to be part of the protest, is just a "scene" thing. Put your degree to use and help change the system, stop sitting around complaining and stomping your feet. GET INVOLVED."

Thanx boys! The busier I.A.D. is with retarded capers like this, the less time they have to look into my dastardly deeds! Bwah-ha-ha!

To the posters saying these cops will be okay as long as everybody keeps there mouths shut, good luck! This ain't my granddaddy's old police department. It don't take much for cops to sing like a canary if they get pressured by the higher ups. Given the fact that there's about over 20 coppers in the video, I'm guessing that I.A.D., as incompetent as they even are, will have this case cracked and the culprits identified before you can say "cheese." How much does anyone want to bet that the white shirt is a meritorious hack?

FACT: The behavior of these officers was childish, inappropriate, embarrassing to our Department, and sure to cost these officers dearly in their future career pursuits, (if they even have a future).

I saw a news video of Milwaukee Police chief, Ed Flynn personally welcoming his officer's back from their G-20 deployment. He greeted each of the 40+ officers and shook their hands as they got of the bus.

He's a class act.
***********************************
Our Superintendent (J-Fed)can't even acknowledge an officer when they pass him in the hall or on the street. But, he'll gladly throw a few under the bus for taking a photo.

NO LOVE FOR J-FED, BUT I DIDN'T SEE ANY VIDEO OF THE MILWAUKEE OFFICERS EMBARRASSING THEIR DEPARTMENT OR CHIEF WHILE IN PITTSBURGH, EITHER.

Dear "Mr Mainstream,"

We don't print blanket statements such as those scattered throughout your post.

The fact is, we care if people make the Department look bad because it makes everyone else's job harder. You think the decline of the Department happened in the
past 4 years? It is a process and this contributes to it. Your "it happens all the time" attitude is exactly what's wrong with this. It shouldn't happen at all - or at least be rare enough that it raises more than a shrug. And it violates orders under a superintendent that has shown no qualms about sending cops to federal prison.

And your ski trip? Your cottage? Hope they're hidden well because punitive damages are becoming more and more commonplace.

And no one is claiming to be "perfect." But we're claiming to be a little bit smarter than the idiots in the video. You sicken us by justifying misbehavior with a "its been that way for 28 years" attitude.

You are exactly the reason this job has become a chore. You post was a insult to people who have to come up after us and who came on to serve, not just make a buck.

And by the way, only governments can censor. We just remove the extraneous bullshit you try to pass off as experience.

Right on, SCC. When I saw this video, which is all over the web, I came here expecting you to make excuses for these morons. Glad to read that you're as appalled as I am.

This is exactly what the CPD gets so little respect.

SCC, you made the lead story on CH 5 4:30pm news.
Natalie Martinez opened the story stating the video is what everone is talking about on YouTube and that it is the lead story on the second city cop blog showing an image of the blog with thr story.

Thanks clowns. You dumb fucks. And yes the white shirts involved should be fired!!!!!

I'm glad that I was over qualified and over trained
(not 9161) for the deployment.
I'm sure CPD will never be allowed to play with others again.

I can't believe how many posts here are trying to defend this bullshit.

This shit is NOT funny.

I don't give a fuck how some of you jackasses did it back in the "OLD DAYS". Those days are gone. Those days, and some of the officers from those days, are the reason why shit is so strict and fucked up now.

FUCK YOU GUYS TOO for trying to defend or stand up for these dumbfucks!

This shit is just stupid!

It detracts from what the rest of us are trying to accomplish which is maintain a living in a career that is not perceived by most to be filled with morons.



Can't blame this one on the hair gelers fellas. I'm sure you had to have had some kind of time on to get picked for this detail.
AND I'M NOT A FUCKING FNG

Maybe you should look at both sides before deciding. Read the article from WTAE.com in Pittsburgh.

"... And when I saw the dept. notice for the time-and-one-half road trip tp Philly, and who was accepting the application, I realized there was no way I would be selected to go! Good luck clout bosses. I hope the money was real good! Private lawyers tend to be expensive.

PROBABLY BETTER THAT YOU DIDN'T GO ANYWAY, SARGE, BECAUSE WHILE YOU WERE GOING TO PHILLY, EVERYONE ELSE WAS IN PITTSBURGH !

OT:

Change is so very slow in coming to the Chicago Police Department but occasionally it does happen.

Today there was a meeting of FOP Unit Reps to inform the Reps of the latest development in the ongoing negotiations regarding the alternate work schedule.

The FOP and the City have come to an agreement that the 21 Districts not already in a pilot program will go to the 4 and 2 work schedule beginning 1st Period, 2010. This NOT a pilot program, this is permanent and is essentially a done deal, according to Mark Donahue.

Desk crews and lockup personnel are included. This is also being offered to the sergeants. It is not, however, being offered to Captains and Lieutenants. Go figure.

A few details have yet to be worked out but all reps were told it will happen and start 1st Period 2010.

The 4 Districts working either 10 hour days or the 6 and 3 schedule will continue in those schedules as pilot programs. The 4 and 2 for the other 21 Districts is not a pilot program, that is our new schedule.

Working day furloughs will be converted into hours. BFD Days also will be worth 8 hours. Personal Days are worth one working day. There will be 6 day off groups rotating backwards.

This is monumental change to an organization that generally moves slower than a glacier goes down a mountain. It is good day for the rank and file. Nothing was given up to get this schedule and arbitration on the issues of our contract still in dispute will go forward.

Glory Hallelujah!

S.C.C. I have been a loyal visitor to the blog and i have to say that the stance your taking is suprising and disappointing. Did these officers fuck up? Yes. Should these guys be given the punishment your suggesting? No. If your on the job long enough your gonna fuck up and as long as your not stealing or helping drug dealers, when you fuck up, we should stand behind our brothers in blue and hope that when its over, everything is ok. All those Officers have families and we need to remember that. United we stand. Divided we fall.
