J-Fed's Handler

Masters Masters Masters:
  • A lean policy wonk with a Harvard Law degree and a master's in international relations from Cambridge at the cop house?

A Harvard law degree? A Cambridge masters degree? And he's stuck here in Chicago as a civilian in a police job? Must have been a truly lousy lawyer. How do you feel about this J-Fed?
  • Mr. Weis says it was he who wanted Mr. Masters: "I can count on him for what I really need: honest feedback. And that's hard, historically, in a department where, whatever the superintendent says, it's done."
Hahahaha. Oh lord, you must have earned every cent of your over-inflated salary the day you said those phrases - did it hurt? Did you need a shower afterward? Did you gargle with battery acid? Oh, and this Department was always run by the First Deputy...until Cline got here. Just so you don't look like more of a completely out-of-touch boob next time.

Continuing on:
  • A meticulous bureaucrat who was a teenage troubleshooter for former Alderman Bernie Hansen (44th)...

Teenage troubleshooter? Meticulous bureaucrat? Gee, what's not to love? He has "Machine hack" tattooed all over his body. Which makes him what, boys and girls?
  • "He's sort of like the eyes and ears of the superintendent, even if he's with the superintendent," says Alderman Walter Burnett...
That makes him a spy. For Shortshanks. Is he still running around with a pistol?

"Earned, Not Given" our asses.

UPDATE: At the request of Crain's Chicago Business, we've removed the copyrighted photo of Masters (Masters Masters). We've also removed most of the full text of the linked article so as to fall into the realm of "fair use."

If you look at the track record of the typical Harvard grad, well I wouldn't let them put gas in my car.

In my opinion, if Harvard Law and Harvard Business both burned to the ground tomorrow, our society and republic would be that much better.

The ONLY thing you learn at each of those schools is how to put your hands in other peoples' pockets.

This department has truly become a sad joke played on all the hard working citizens of Chicago.. With wonder-boy managers, stone idiot feds, and a host of other emotionaly challenged higher ups and yes men, the public has been duped into thinking that having less police officers on the street is actually for the best. Well , you reap what you sow ...the idiocracy of the CPD will continue long after J-Jag has left the building. Watch for a media anouncement that crime has taken another downturn.(cold weather!!!!) The stupid public and media will embrace it,suck it up and J-cock and richie will bask in the fake glory of it all. But ... another summer will come and J-Goof will still go down as the absolute worst law enforcement manager in history. I can't wait to see where he lands after this....fiasco.

He should be certified by the state board in order to carrry a weapon but other then that why the fuck do you all have a issue with this guy. Pathetic policeman you all are. YOu alll worry to much about bullshit, no wonder so many of us have heart attacks so young, because the majority of cops worry about the bullshit that does not even apply to us. Why the fuck do people take issue with Masters. SCC? You are so late with this Post, This article was in last months Crains Business. Slow day at SCC? Who gives a fuck, this guy has a better education then 99.9 percent of the department. Who cares what other experience he has, He is not a fucking beat cop doing doing traffic stops. THe guy is atually a decent person who listens to people unlike J-Fart. Maters actually will even take phone calls from concerned officers. His policy group is a fucking joke but other then that give the guy a fucking break and worrry about other shit. Cops have to much time on their hands if they are concerned with this guy.

SCC, these guys are barking up the wrong tree with this guy carrying a gun and being sworn.

Somehow he (or J-Fed) was able to petition the State training board to get his police credentials. How did that happen? This is totally against state law.

Who pulled the strings? That is the real question. Why is he listed as sworn but does not have a civil service rank? He has not qualified with a firearm since his appointment, this would have warranted termination for any other sworn member of the department. Why not him?

There is something unethical going on here to take care of his ego. The state law governing certification of police officers is strict and clear and this guy doesn't meet the standards who pushed the training board to give this guy a free pass?

Just Asking...

Ex-soldier faces jail for handing in gun

A former soldier who handed a discarded shotgun in to police faces at least five years imprisonment for "doing his duty".

Paul Clarke, 27, was found guilty of possessing a firearm at Guildford Crown Court on Tuesday – after finding the gun and handing it personally to police officers on March 20 this year.

The jury took 20 minutes to make its conviction, and Mr Clarke now faces a minimum of five year's imprisonment for handing in the weapon.

In a statement read out in court, Mr Clarke said: "I didn't think for one moment I would be arrested.

"I thought it was my duty to hand it in and get it off the streets."

I just want to say thank you to all that came out last Thursday night for the Valadez benefit. Christina and the family were truly touched by all of the support. I also want to thank everyone that helped out with the ticket sales. So many people, many of whom I have never met, stepped up and did so many things on their off time to make this event a success. The people at the Horseshoe Casino also went above and beyond to ensure that this was a success. It was not like any of us had any connections with the people at the Casino. In all honesty they heard about the story and were very glad to lend a helping hand. Again thank you to all!!
On a side note the rumor about Dan Hampton is not true. Dan was gracious enough to sign a football, for no fee, so we could use in our raffle.
Speaking of the raffle, for those who did not attend, or did not hear the announcement, the one minor glitch was that in the final days before the event the Indiana gaming Commission did not allow us to hold the raffle at the event or even sell raffle tickets at the event. The raffle was held in the 007th District this past Saturday. We gave away 5 trips to Vegas among ather prizes. All of the winners have been notified and 2 of the winners of the Vegas trips have donated them back to the family.
I used this forum to get the word out about the event so I feel obligated to give thanks as well. On behalf of Christina and the Valadez family we thank you all!

1) violent crime is at a 5 year low, as the caption under asshole's picture states, or that
2) Asshole is the reason for any drop in violent crime? Does anyone in any of the press really believe that Masters has his fingers on the pulse of what's going on in these streets?

I've read a lot of trumped up bullshit in the press over the past year or so, most of it trying to make some sort of sense about WEISel's complete lack of preparedness for taking on this job. But THIS crap about Masters is about the best snow job I've seen yet!! COMPLETE FICTION!

They can lie all they want.

People are getting killed during robberies in Lincoln Park and Lakeview.

Uptown residents are reduced to begging for help through YouTube.

There are more burglaries in Beverly and Mount Greenwood than ever before.

Shootings in Edison Park?

The papers don't control crime, they only control the useless conversations that come after the fact. Crime is something that people feel. People know when trouble is brewing, they don't need to be told it is happening.

Crime is a tipping point issue for politicans. One second its acceptable and in the next, people are calling for the mayor's head. Then, every crime that comes after is one more reason to get angry.

Crime gets U.S. Presidents voted out of office. This mayor is not immune. His end is near.

Whatever happened to the investigation about his possible UUW offense? Question for range guys: is there a record of Masters qualifying in 2009? If so with which weapons? If allegations of him carrying a firearm are sustained, with he be charged criminally? If not charged, the question is can all civilian employees of CPD now run around with firearms? Can we give carbines to crossing guards? If the criminal case goes forward, will Masters lose his status as a member of the bar of the state of Illinois?
JFED these questions are directed at you personally. In the interest of restoring and maintaining the credibility of this department in the eyes of its rank and file and the general public, answers are required. If what Cozzi did was important enough that you referred it to the USDOJ for federal prosecution, certainly a civilian employee of our dept committing at least two on duty crimes (police personation and UUW) requires your attention. Remember JFED, the integrity(assuming there is any) of your leadership demands resolution to these questions.

I don't know Masters and never worked around him so my comments are not based on direct knowledge.But, the man does have superior qualifications and served in the armed forces as a volunteer. How can he be knocked for that? Who cares if he never practiced law, the vast majority of law school graduates never do practice and never set foot in a court room.It seems that a lot of cops just don't like people with an education. I worked nights for 8 years while going to school to get a BA and a MS degree. I also had my fair share of department awards before I retired. The people who were dead set against college educated cops where those who never took the time and effort to advance themselves. Just saying!!

Well I'll tell you something good Mr. Interviewer. How about a certain civilian was running around the city carrying a firearm which is against the law. After said civilian was called out for doing this, the super special civilian is taking law enforcement classes "on-line" to cover his ass after he should have been arrested and fired for possession of a firearm. Not only is this a slap in the face of our so-called disciplinary system, it is the equivalent of the certian civilain taking a giant crap on the grave of every CPD officer who has not only served this city but who has died in the line of duty wearing that star you "earned" from taking on-line law enforcement classes.

There are two sets of rules, one for the clouted and one for the rest of us.

SAME STORY ON HUBERBUNS IN CRAINS

http://www.chicagobusiness.com/cgi-bin/article.pl?mpid=35&page_id=1265&seenIt=1

Ron Huberman
Assistant deputy superintendent
Chicago Police Department
AGE: 30

Paperwork, the bane of every beat cop's existence, will be shelved for good here.

"Within 12 months, the Chicago Police Department will go completely paperless," says Ron Huberman, a uniformed officer who carries a gun and two master's degrees. "I am 100% confident Chicago will be the leader in police technology."

Already, Chicago police officers can mine a database with 4 million arrest records to track down a suspect by nickname or the description of a tattoo.

Mr. Huberman, who heads the office of information and strategic services, is working with California-based database software giant Oracle Corp. to put a laptop in every squad car, extending the computer revolution to all aspects of police work.

That means detectives will start working a case five minutes after the beat officer files a crime report, instead of three days later, says Mr. Huberman. "They will spend more time solving crimes."

The technology vision starts with Police Superintendent Terry Hillard, but Mr. Huberman's job is to make it work on the street.

Armed with his experience as a beat cop, an MBA and a master's degree in social services administration, "Ron Huberman is unique," says Chuck Wexler, executive director of the Police Executive Research Forum, a Washington, D.C.-based think tank. "He's able to combine two worlds: street officer policing and the use of analytical tools."

The forum is working with the city and Oracle to benchmark how Chicago's police technology compares with that of other cities.

"They're light years ahead of most other big cities," says Mr. Wexler. Mr. Huberman "knows how cops think and how to make it work."

Civilianizing the mangement of this Dept. has been a disaster. They hate the sworn. They have no allegiance to the organization, just to their clout at city hall. Like J-Fed, they don't understand what we do. Hence, they all want to do "policy." This explains why J-Fed felt the need to have a policy group of PO's to give him at least rudimentary feedback. The only civilians that are worth a damn are detention aids, and the police aids they got rid of on the desk. Oh, and the clerks at 35th street doing the work, instead of PO's. But they'll be the first to go if there's a cutback.

The majority of these ivory tower elites always looked down on ordinary people. When the original GI Bill was passed after WWII, the President of Harvard said it would create "unqualified people, the most unqualified of this generation" and the President of the University of Chicago predicted educational hobos who would just take up space in classrooms for as long as the money was there.

Good thing "the greatest generation" paid no heed to these bright lights.

I am not the original 11/17/2009 12:52:00 AM poster, but 11/17/2009 02:04:00 PM's response to the original poster is most disturbing and that person has shown themselves to be a piece of shit.

If it was not for the original poster's Dad, and mine, and the Dad's of a whole lot of people in our country, 02:04:00 PM would be speaking German and saluting the Fuhrer on our home ground!

I enjoyed reading about the career of the original poster's hero Father, and he made a good point. his Dad, and mine as well, would be ill at the representation of Masters as a Marine. Masters can put on a uniform, either of the Marines or the CPD, but a uniform alone does not make him a competent man, a Marine, or a Police Officer, and Masters is not any of the aforementioned. He is a play actor at all three and he has no business on this job, much more in the #2 position.

To the original poster, 11/17/2009 12:52:00 AM, I salute your Dad. Thanks for telling me about him and his career. I do give a "flying fuck" about his sacrifice because he was part of the greatest generation that ever lived. And 11/17/2009 02:04:00 PM can go to hell.

You know what's really sad? People like J-Fed always seem to land on their feet when they finish destroying a great police department. I'm sorry to say, but the Illinois State Police suffered much the same fate under the "leadership" of former CPD Sgt Terry Gainer. It was all downhill from there. Morale was at it's lowest that I had ever seen and people with backbones, good ideas, and real leadership skills were banished from the career ladder, only to be stepped on by career ass kissers and yes men. Those were the types of people who Gainer surrounded himself with. After he left ISP he became second in command of the DC Metro Police, who felt the same about him as ISP did. Then on to the Capitol Police for more of the same. After he finished screwing that department up, once again he lands another sweet gig as Sgt at Arms of the United States Senate. This asshat even has his own Wikipedia page.

*****************************

You, Sir, have no fucking clue what you are talking about. Masters was put into HQ's 5th floor by Dickie Daley to be Dickies "direct line of communication" with CPD. However, for some reason, EVERY PIECE OF POLICY must be approved by MASTERS. EVERYTHING. Masters is in a position where he can approve or reject department policy. Nothing short of a general order gets past him to the Supe, and even those have to go THROUGH Masters BEFORE they get to the Supe. If Masters works for City Hall and reports to the Mayor, and all department policies must get Masters approval, then who the FUCK do you think is really running this department?

Pull your head from your ass and get with the program, jack.

HAS HE QUALIFIED WITH HIS WEAPON? HAS HE PASSED A BACKGROUND CHECK? HAS HE BEEN DRUG SCREENED? DID HE GO THROUGH THE SAME HIRING PROCESS THAT EVERY OTHER SWORN MEMBER HAD TO GO THOUGH (STATE OR FEDERAL). DID HE PASS A PROBATIONARY PERIOD? HAS HE ANSWERED A CALL OR INVESTIGATED A CRIME?

Masters is the asshole, who watches the asshole (Jfed) for the ASSHOLE on the 5th floor at city hall. We sure are paying a heap of money in salaries just for these 3 assholes. Quite an expensive circle jerk indeed !!

You, Sir, have no fucking clue what you are talking about. Masters was put into HQ's 5th floor by Dickie Daley to be Dickies "direct line of communication" with CPD. However, for some reason, EVERY PIECE OF POLICY must be approved by MASTERS. EVERYTHING. Masters is in a position where he can approve or reject department policy. Nothing short of a general order gets past him to the Supe, and even those have to go THROUGH Masters BEFORE they get to the Supe. If Masters works for City Hall and reports to the Mayor, and all department policies must get Masters approval, then who the FUCK do you think is really running this department?

Pull your head from your ass and get with the program, jack.

11/17/2009 08:54:00 PM
Listen here buddy, I do know and understand that he was put there by the mayor you fucking loser! It is pathetic that you and I are talking shit to one another on this fucking blog and wasting our time just as I stated in my original posting. Its people like you that are fucking douche bags and pay attention to the fact that this guy is on the job. The guy is on the ball and yes he does make policy but who gives a fuck. State one order that came out since he has been here which " fucks with the real police" , State the order or any order for that matter that has come out that makes our job as policeman harder then it really is... That has Masters name on it.... State it! What did this guy Masters do to you that you have such a fucking hard on that you have a problem with him? Call me Jack thats fine but I do know what I am talking about. Im no fan of Jody but the guy gave us 4-2 , carbines, new cars etc. Yes he as in J fed did a fuck over Cozzi which I agree is totally fucked up but keep in mind all those other things I stated prior which all went through Masters. Whoever you are that has a problem with my post thats cool its your opinion and you are entitled to it but look at things with a clear head and a different perspective. By the way get a side job or something and stop being a a tool and bitching about Masters because one day he may be our Supt and maybe he makes you merit Lt. Then what would you say to his his face you jag off?

His self described mission to 'bring this Dept. into the 21st century' is well known throughout the fifth floor here at Hqtrs. It's also well scoffed at too! This political hack with a law degree clearlý doesn't have a fucking clue...he and (another pompous ass here) Hamilton have been leading our clueless Supt. astray for the better part of two years now. We truly haven't accomplished a damn thing (other than carrying the M4s in squads, but that was going to happen anyway, with us (as usual) following the lead of east and west coast PDs), but to hear them tell it, they all think they're wearing Bratton's underwear!

"Who cares what other experience he has, He is not a fucking beat cop doing doing traffic stops. THe guy is atually a decent person who listens to people unlike J-Fart."

--------------------------------
He listens to the WRONG people. He has no concept of what it is we do because he is a product of the machine, surrounded by products of the machine, and is limited by the machine. As such, he has no real knowledge of what it is that we really need... because there is a disconnect between the troops and the bosses. You can have as much good intention, but you cannot transcend the disconnect unless you know what is on the other side... the only way to do that is...drumroll... have a boss that WORKED HIS WAY UP.

Shortshanks has something on J-Fed. Bottom line. I refuse to believe that he is so blind that he actually believes that he can count on McMasters to give him "honest feedback." Jody,Jody, Jody get your head out of your ass and look at the gaggle of nitwits that you are saddled with. For the love of Pete, there isn't a one that would tell you the truth to save their lives. Jody, you have been lied to from the time you were interviewed till the present. Let this be your final wake up call. They are playing you for the fall guy. Anything thing that goes wrong with this department is going to fall on your shoulders and yours alone. The brass lies to you so they can keep their spots and wait for your eventual departure. Waiting like vultures to swoop in and scavenge your carcass. Shortshanks and his trained monkeys lie to you so that you won't make any informed decision or learn the truth about this town, which is...it's corrupt to the core of city hall. Here's a piece of info for you, it's free and it is the closest thing to the truth that you have heard in two years. YOU ARE BEING PLAYED AS THE PATSY. Here is a piece of advice, you want to leave a positive mark on this department and town, start by dumping all the spin doctors that are whispering in your ear trying to tell you how things should be done. Open your eyes and take a good hard look at the department and city and decide for yourself which of the two is truly corrupt. Then go after the one that is corrupt with both barrels. You want to see homicides plummett and morale sky rocket, get some of these crooked ass politicians indicted and sent to prison and you will win the hearts and minds of the rank and file. Get Shortshanks convicted and you can write your own ticket. Don't worry about cars and radios and blackberries, hammer some political hacks, you will get some respect from the troops. Truly analyze this department and surround yourself with the people who truly want to make a difference and aren't just a bunch of talking heads and you will earn our respect.

Mike Masters is in a high ranking position within the Police Department and his best qualifications are that he carried a water bucket for Democratic hack Alderman Bernie Hansen who shared office space with the Cullertons?

Please, this guy is a political hack of the very highest order. For christ sake his father is a hack lawyer in Vdolyak's office! No one should doubt that Fast Eddie doesn't still have heavy influence in Chicago.. Eddie can still call out muscle at election time, don't doubt that.

And we PO's have to suffer these civilian and FBI fools who now are in charge of the entire department!

Make no mistake, however, who the ultimate puppet master is. Richard M. Daley, the anti-christ here, the head of the axis of evil. Nothing here will change until Daley and his kind are gone from the scene and that may never happen. It is highly possible that an indictment of Daley will never happen, in spite of a mountain of evidence. The man has that kind of power.

Edmund Burke said "All that is necessary for the triumph of evil is that good men do nothing." I fear there aren't enough good men around here to counteract the enormous corrupt political forces running things. Better for this blue shirt to enjoy what remains of life and get the hell away.

It's too late for teh brainless FBI wunderkid. What he did to Cozzi is inexcusable, and no one will forgive him for that, regardless of what he does now.
Doing THAT, and then lying about it when asked about it, sunk his ship. Game over. And when he leaves, he can take Shortshanks's personal ball warmer/#2 punk with him.

Isn't it interesting that with all of the unanswered questions about Masters's "sworn" and/or "right to carry" issues, that WEISel's own
"Blog 501" has YET to answer those legitimate questions? When does WEISel or Masters himself intend to let the rest of us SWORN MEMBERS of this Dept. know the answers to these questions? When are we going to see some documentation about this?
SCC, this alone should be a
separate thread; Everyone has a right to know just what the fuck this guy's status is in our Dept.
Can't believe that the leasdership of this Dept. has stonewalled on this issue for the better part of a year now, with no answers at all.
Do they think they're so much better than the rest of us? Maybe the new "Focus meetings" that Bea Cuello is hosting should answer this too.
