Ed, What Have You Done? (UPDATED)

WTF?
  • BREAKING NEWS:

    Anonymous said...
    BC's husband EOD in a little hot water? Video footage going around with EOD talking crazy

    12/15/2009 10:35:00 PM

  • Ed O was caught MF'ing J Weisel and how he has torn the department to shreds. He just spoke the truth. No rampage just truth. The guy is a hero in my eyes. Somebody with balls in exempt rank. The first time I've seen a Christmas miracle. You go boss, I'd follow you to the gates of hell. He's a boss that's loyal to his troops. He's one of the few exempt cops left. If not the last.

    12/17/2009 05:33:00 PM

  • Well ladies and gentlemen, the story has grown legs!

    Apparently, it was true your "hero" EOD was caught badmouthing (in front of numerous witnesses at the Christmas Party and allegedly now on youtube) the very person (JFED) who is responsible for not only promoting him and his wife and enlarging their undeserving overinflated pensions.

    Rumor is the EOD is done before end of the year. He will be given a choice to retire (which he has the years and age) or force to be demoted. So you might just get your chance to follow him you little redhead.

    The moral of the story is "don't bite the hand that feeds you" (at least not publicly at a Christmas Party).
Honest to pete, the writers for "All My Children" couldn't come up with stuff like this. And these softballs are in charge of a major metropolitan police department.

UPDATE: To the mentally deficient and reading challenged short bus riders visiting:
  • These are comments that have been appearing here for six days now. Six Days. We've ignored it and let it ride for a while. But if truthfully stated opinions start to be rumored to be affecting Department operations, we'd be remiss if we didn't address it, even if it's only a means to kill the rumor. We think more bosses ought to be able to tell J-Fed exactly how he's destroying the Department and not have to fear for their spots,. But since they got there by selling their souls, walking over the backs of more deserving, stabbing others in the back or riding on the coattails of actual police officers doing good work, well, let's just say our sympathies are limited.

    Ed plays his games while Bea plays hers. We weren't ever going to be part of that circle and we'll never be a boss, so we don't really care. Political spots are political spots and let's not pretend anyone is going to be moved without the approval of Shortshanks or his people.

    So spare us your "SCC you suck," "SCC, you're wrong," or "SCC you claim there's a video..." We don't and didn't claim a thing. We addressed a six day old rumor that may or may not affect a political appointment. Nothing more, nothing less. Prove it or debunk it - we don't have a dog in this fight.

SCC,

what is this major metropolitan police department you speak of?

Time to bring in a new "chief".

I suggest someone outside the environs of the CPD.

Perhaps someone with urban municipal experience as a police leader.

Can you say Bratton?

Can you say Timoney?

All I'm hearing is no fucking way.

eddie was the real police when most of you were playing gijoe...he and tom byrne always had your back and if you newbies are frustrated imagine their frustration...if you cannot stick up for good bosses you dont deserve them...ihope he does retire who needs the crap you all have to put up with...but again when you diss those who take care of honest coppers..who needs it... i think tom is too young yet, but im not sure...not related to either but have had years watching and appreciating both...

Virtually every member of the CPD, active or retired, knows that da WEISel is a lying, shameless, sadistic, psychopathic cocksucker who will not hesitate to destroy the life of a decent officer to further his careerist agenda. This rotten muthafucka has the compassion and soul of a cactus plant.

Despite the fact that CPD morale is nonexistent, it would not surprise me if the Stuttering Prick extends the catastrophic tenure of this clueless piece of shit.

Correction, SCC. Ed O'D was a Cmdr before WEISel ever appeared on the scene.
Ed was only lateralled, from B & A to Fugitive App. under the WEISel, so Ed actually hasn't bitten anything!
Cuello has, of course, been promoted by WEISel far past her abilities, and she's not the only one.
Ed is likely going to retire, especially since he was fortunate to get the age and time in exempt status locked in, which is actually a blessing under the WEISel administration. Shame on whoever captured this mini-rant on film and uploaded it to UTube.
Haven't seen the tape, but if the posting of its contents are true, Ed didn't say anything that the vast majority of officers in this Dept. along with a few members of the media haven't been thinking for the past 18 months or so. It's also being said now that the Mayor is so disgusted with WEISel that rumors persist he will be gone before his 01 Feb (2nd) anniversary date.

Well I hope it is not true.

I met EOD, twice, when he was the street deputy and he came out to a shooting and another incident.

He was nice as can be and he was competent too. He called the next day to see how things were after each incident, and I appreciated it.


Do not know him outside of that but was in two other shootings and not one of the other big wigs ever did anything like EOD.


It is a shame if he does go because in the two meetings with him I could tell this guy was the real police in the past, not like what we have out there now.

If Ed didn't say it then we shouldn't be broadcasting this alleged story. Having said that, don't we all know that the opinion of the vast majority, is that J-Fed has F'd up this dept. something awful. And the main source of his problem is City Hall. It is truly neglect when you don't hire, promote, recognize vacancies; allow movement in, out, and around the organization. And of course, not dealing with labor fairly at contract time, or is it contract era. The only hope is regime change. I sure would like to see another 'no confidence' march. In the mean time, we can only hope the 24 unpaid days is worth the "priviledge" of being exempt. Next year I bet it goes up by a few days, say 28. As I look back, I think the downfall of this dept. was "civilianization" at the upper levels.

Anonymous Anonymous said...

First of all, EOD was not M-F'ing J-Fed. He gave a short speech saying that the backbone of the department were the Detectives and the Police Officers, and that all of the bosses, including himself, weren't shit. He did this for the appreciation of the honored retirees. He stated that "you people" (the troops) are the ones who make this department great, not the bosses (again, himself included). Everyone who was there and actually LISTENING to what he said, understood what he meant. Now, I will say the language was a little rough, but absolutely funny. It's an absolute shame that someone put this out there in the context that he was M-F'ing J-Fed. There were alot of people talking in the back when he had the microphone, and probably did not hear everything that he said, or the context with which it was meant. EOD never said anything about J-Fed "tearing the department to shreds" as the original poster stated. If he/she were listening, they would've known that this talk was about the retiree's. Please let us know who would record a speech at a Unit Christmas Party and put it on youtube-that is seriously f'd up.

((((((((((((((((((((((( * )))))))))))))))))))))))


Yeah, and so what else is new. Chicago, Crook County, where everything is legit and hard work will be rewarded, (unless some connected, worthless pos is in charge).


A former police Deputy all of a sudden is an expert at urban snow removal.


A federally indicted alderman, caught in a corrupt bribe taking scheme, (just like his father before him, I might add), is not only NOT removed from the City Council, but IS STILL IN CHARGE of the Police and Fire Committee!


A former police Commander and relative of the Mayors' wife is given the contact to build a police district facility AND the new police HQ both of which would have been better off if built by a family of beavers, (no, not THAT family of Beavers, REAL beavers!).


County Commissioner Bobbi Steele agrees to retire IF she can pull down the pension of the Board President instead of the pension she earned as a commissioner AND her son, who is a lowly Chicago Park District employee can take over her elected seat as a county commissioner.


Jody Weis, who has NEVER BEFORE had training as a Police Officer, is suddenly put in charge of the second largest police force in the nation and given double the salary of the previous occupant of said office. From this lofty position, he has proceeded to make a mockery of Chicago law enforcement, surrounding himself with goofs and yes men and trying to set policy with PR tricks like 'How am I driving' bumper stickers on emergency response vehicles and violating the police contract consistently as if he had never read it or knew one existed!

Again I say, WHAT ELSE IS NEW ! ! !

Why does everyone think that Ed is such a stand up guy because of it? If this is true it wasn't because he is Mr.Standup. He was probably drinking and didn't know that it would get out to Jfed. I worked for Ed in the past and it was nice working for him too. But if he want to be a stand up guy, he would have done it while he was sober and did it to the weasels face. Then I would be giving him his praise.

He also built OEMC at 1411 W. Madison, however, and unlike putting Tom Thumb at S & S, they covered themselves with using him to build these facilities. He has a degree in civil engineering and was a licensed civil engineer. Even though he did a horseshit job, he had the credentials, unlike the goof placed at S & S by the shanks. Tom Thumb is not qualified and has no business being in charge of S & S, but it makes sense to the shanks!

I never understood the obsession with "good" or "great" "bosses". Fact is that if you are a good cop you really don't need anything from a boss except to approve an arrest report or sign an overtime slip. The less contact I have with people above the rank of sergeant the better. Most people who make Lt are kissasses anyway.Truth is all exempts, even the "good" ones take way more out of our pension than they put in to it. Way I see it, they owe me, I don't owe them.

Too many cameras and too many people suing and winning law suits against the city ruined this department. Just back each other up!

I'm embarrassed by my fellow Policeman today. Where is the brotherhood and kinship? I was at this party and I won’t admit that the good Commander said ANYTHING! I’m so tired of the bashing that this “electronic bathroom wall” has turned in to. You want to; inform the men and women in blue that a policeman was injured and the bad guy was captured or put down, rally the troops for reform or assemble against an injustice and make our collective voices heard? That’s what we should be using this forum for. To openly try and ruin a man’s career by repeating alleged comments at a party, shame on the mother fucker that said anything. Every one of you reading this has said something that if published on the front page of a newspaper the next day would embarrass you or your family. How dare anyone repeat these comments in a public forum on one of your own for God’s sake!!!!!! This isn’t just idle comments that are being thrown around, this could end a career! Save me the crap that he shouldn’t have said it then, see above regarding your own life and comments.
Any Policeman that videotapes another Policeman and then distributes that video should be hunted down and made an example of. Would you want to be in a room or a squad with a piece of shit like that? I personally don’t believe that a video exists because the vultures and hyenas on this blog (you know who you are) would have found and published a link. SCC, please delete this link if it does turn up in the future. We cry that some of the public, the fake reverends and the liberals hate us and try to break us down. Look at this crap for a second and see what we do to our own.
I for one think this Commander is a great man and to use a veteran’s term, he is a “prince.” Regardless of whether he is great or a piece of shit, what he said to a group of his friends at a party, no matter the number of attendees was still private and meant for those in attendance only. His alleged comments as stated by another blogger were directed at all upper management including HIMSELF. He was implying that they all (upper management) could do a better job and that the engine driving the Police Force was the ranks below Commander.
Everyone take a breath and think before you type. This man is a Policeman and he is one of our own, that still means something! It is all we have left.

Don't know Ed or even who he is. The PD is not any worse with Jfed. It was bad in the past and will be bad in the future.These exempts are all cut from the same political cloth. You are looking at the past through rose colored glasses if you think the current admistration is worse. Rodriguez,Hillard,Martin,Townsend, on and on and on and in Shitcago it has and always will be.

Before Ed O'D came to 010 I had never laid eyes on him. In his first command as a Captain and Watch Commander he was a pleasure to work for and a classy gentleman. Whenever Ed was the W/C you always knew everything was going to be OK, that the bad guys were gonna get locked up and the worksheets would be properly filled out. He was our W/C during the 170th Birthday of the CPD and I told anyone who would listen that they'd better enjoy having him as the boss because he was one of the few and far between "real" bosses. I've worked for a lotta guys, some stone strokes and some princes but Ed is always 1st or 2nd on everyone's "best" list.

Anyone worth his salt as Superintendent would never complain because one of his Command Staff had a different opinion as he or even might not be his biggest supporter. Who wants to surround himself with suckholes and "yes men?" Obviously Jody wants little tin soldiers at 35th St since he, obviously, has to bow and scrape in the presence of Shortshanks.

If there's a job action in the works it's because J-Fed is a coward and only WISHES he had the balls of Ed O'D and knows most of Ed's subordinates would walk barefoot on broken glass to follow him.

Eat your heart out, Jody. Remember Cozzi.

Shortshanks wanted to fuck up the whole CPD, he commissioned a study to find the dumbest of the dumb to be a "figurehead" superintendent". They would also have to be an experienced ass kisser (daley loves them).

The study came back with J-Fed as the most qualified.

He does exactly what shanks tells him to do & he always has Masters at his side to make sure he gets it right.

O.T. Have a furlough question. If a guy is forced to retire, due to age, on 01 Mar 2010 can he pick his furlough selection after that date. How can he pick a furlough segment, 7A and 13B, when he won't/can't be employed by the City during that time frame? Anyone know?

12/21/2009 10:06:00 AM


You must be a commander judging by the intelligence of your question.

Obviously (to the rest of us at least) if one is no longer employed then one does not get to take their furlough. However, the FOG who is forced off will get paid for all unused time due him or her, including (HERE'S THE ANSWER!!) unused furlough days, P-DAYS, BFD'S (8 per for PO'S) OT etc.

Now please don't get back on your keyboard and ask what an FOG is. If you need to ask then you aren't one.

Word is that Commander O'D came into his new unit fugitive and read them the riot act saying how they were a bunch of Pre Madonnas and so forth. He went on to say that they were a glorified tact team and need to pick it up with the numbers. His new unit was not thrilled with him from the start. My question is where does he get off saying this stuff when he himself has had a clouted career filled with Merit promotions etc. He only Married his wife cause she has more clout then him. She is his ticket and now he is fucked based on his own mishaps. The guy is a snake and I knew that when I was in TRU. His own unit hates the guy .

ATTENTION RECRUIT!!!!

When you get 35-40 years on the job maybe you will want that 7A
13B furlo and will be pitching a bitch when some punk with 5 minutes on the job questions your seniority.

Read your contract dummy.

As long as he is more senior to you he can pick whatever is available (even knowing he will be retired by that date and the city will pay him for those furlo days).

Now grow a pair and get back to work!

I'm embarrassed by my fellow Policeman today. Where is the brotherhood and kinship? I was at this party and I won’t admit that the good Commander said ANYTHING! I’m so tired of the bashing that this “electronic bathroom wall” has turned in to. You want to; inform the men and women in blue that a policeman was injured and the bad guy was captured or put down, rally the troops for reform or assemble against an injustice and make our collective voices heard? That’s what we should be using this forum for. To openly try and ruin a man’s career by repeating alleged comments at a party, shame on the mother fucker that said anything.

No, shame on all the gold-stars who sold their souls to WEIS and keep their mouths shut every day. AT THE VERY LEAST THEY SHOULD HAVE SET WEISEL STRAIGHT ABOUT COZZI.

Tell me Peterson or any of them never gave any shitbird a couple of cracks through the years. They're all hypocrites and bow to JPUD to keep their precious spots.

I never understood the obsession with "good" or "great" "bosses". Fact is that if you are a good cop you really don't need anything from a boss except to approve an arrest report or sign an overtime slip. The less contact I have with people above the rank of sergeant the better. Most people who make Lt are kissasses anyway.Truth is all exempts, even the "good" ones take way more out of our pension than they put in to it. Way I see it, they owe me, I don't owe them.

Have known and worked with/for EOD for over 30 years. He is and always was about 2 things: 1)locking up bad guys; 2) looking out for his fellow police officers. He was, as a lieutenant, once accused by a commander of having "too big of a heart" for looking out for his guys. You lose credibility when you trash a man's reputation without knowing the facts.

Seriously STFU about your cush spot in a unit. If its so bad there come back to patrol. Oh thats right you dont want to work in uniform and give up your take home car.


Hey delusional theres no take home cars. Officers were doing good work. Its not about uniform. There never was cush. Theres no integrity or smarts in todays command.

Do you think he has been in B&A his whole carreer, with a side trip to FAU, because of his knowledge, skills and abilities? Also wasn't he the commander of SOS or TRU during "the troubles" Finially #4 "Whenever Ed was the W/C you always knew everything was going to be OK, that the bad guys were gonna get locked up and the worksheets would be properly filled out." Did Ed ever arrest anyone? Did he make out the sheets? No & no. Everything was OK because he let the WS make all the decisions. The only time he left the station was to go to dinner, or more, with Bea, leaving other people to do his WC work.

O.T. Have a furlough question.


I went in January last year,I bid on midnites (to open up a spot on my shift) and took a 2nd period full furlo,knowing I was going and
to give someone else a better furlo.I asked around on taking
a furlo after your retirement date
and all I got was conflicting answers.It seems theres nothing written in stone one way or another.

In my younger years an old timer I knew took a full 8th period furlo
knowing he was going in the early spring,when asked why,he replied because I can.
That always stuck in my mind,why you would screw over the people you worked with like that?

So when my turn came to pull the pin I did what I thought was right
and hopefully it helped out some younger officers.(And it did).

So just take your furlo before your B-day and pull the pin before
that.You'll get paid for the furlo,I know I did.

Retired.............and loving it

He gets to pick a furlo for the upcoming year because at the time of the picks he is still a member of the unit. That has been the practice of the department for just about forever, so they are bound by past practice.

Since he will not be on the job at furlo time, he will be paid for the time and those furlo segments.

He is kind of a douche for taking 2 prime furlo segments that will probably go to waste. He could have taken 5th period, just after his mandatory retirement date and let someone else enjoy those times.

We stick together, those of us who do band together, only because we have such shit leaders that all we can do is to trust each other because believe me, there is widespread mistrust of all supervisory staff with jodyweis at the top of the untrustworthy pyramid.

I look forward to the day when I can attend a welcome home event with Cozzi and can put to the test the rule that says we cannot associate with felons. I would rather associate with the felon Cozzi than any two faced coward exempt.

I intend to associate with Cozzi as I see fit and every gold star wearing jizz gobbler who shut up about his imprisonment can just keep on licking the boot-heels of he who caused the injustice.

Since he will not be on the job at furlo time, he will be paid for the time and those furlo segments.

He is kind of a douche for taking 2 prime furlo segments that will probably go to waste. He could have taken 5th period, just after his mandatory retirement date and let someone else enjoy those times.

These guys are being FORCED off. There's a certain amount of disbelief and a remote hope that the rule will change and they won't be pushed out. After all, there was a suspension of this edict when Townsend was over the age limit...

Or, maybe the guy knew which segments you wanted and he chose them to screw with you.

If a PO is going to wait to be thrown off the job at 63 (he will collect unemployment after that) and chooses 7A and 13B knowing he will be gone before that, then he is/was a total jagoff, probably his entire pathetic career!

So, you're in a specialized unit and you get written up for being late. Don't blame the boss, get there on time. There are a lot of other officers who would love your spot who I am sure would make sure they were there 8 minutes early every day.

What is all this "standup guy" bullshit? If you are heavy then you can do most anything you want on this job! No one, I repeat no one on this job that reaches exempt rank gets there "accidently!" This blog is full of "lappers" who asskiss these bosses when they do some trivial favor for them and then the boss uses them like mindless slaves to do their bidding! You see it throughout your career and everyone knows how it works!

I always laugh when I hear Captains and Exempts telling us they have to wait until they are 60 to retire! Tons of POs leave before that and are able to pay for it and not "sweat!" 4K a month for POs and 6K or 7K or even 9K a month for the "Chosen" ones! Go figure! Bea will stay on so EOD could have left years ago! They all hate to jump off the gravy train and the "morning boss, here's your coffee and paper boss!" Years ago when you asked how the new boss was, they would say, "Hes a prince, he won't hurt you, he's behind you a 100% if you're right, he's one of us, never forgot where he came from, he's the real police, his door is always open, blah, blah, blah!" You guys just crack me up!

I've only been screwed over by other P.O's, not by bosses. At least you expect nothing from bosses, P.O's need to stop being our own worst enemies or we will never win this fight.

If you are more than 8 minutes late in EOD's unit you get a red check by your name. 3X's and you get written up.

Don't be fooled, he's screwed several people in the unit in underhanded ways.

Only time he looks the other way is if you're clouted...or you're one of the boys.

Not sticking up for the man because I've never met him, but what is so hard about GETTING TO WORK ON TIME??!!
I'm aware the accident/flat tire can and does happen, but where I work you'll see THE SAME PEOPLE chronically late. And I can guarantee it's the same in the other districts/units.

Worked with EOD many years ago. He went out and locked people up and had many good cases. However he also liked to poach on other detectives cases. He also was a major kiss ass with the bosses of the unit. He hung with Kennedy, Maurer and the other members of the Round Table. As a Sgt. he went on a cruise with them and earned the nickname " cabin boy ". He could tell some good war stories and sometimes he could be fun to work with, but he mostly was interested in getting promoted and he would do what was needed to get his promotions. He is a merit Lt.

To the tool who posted this: What a moron you are. Is it asking too much to insist on an employee to actually show up to work ON TIME? Oh the humanity! Is it asking too much to have a boss insist on a reasonable expectation of discipline under their command? You want to be undisciplined? Go join the freakin' Peace Corps or work at Loevy and Loevy and drink your latte's and smoke your pot with those losers. Grow a beard and get your nose ring too. I'm sure they could care less if you're late for work.

SCC- When I stated "post video or shut up" I was speaking to the voice that claims to have one, not SCC. I follow your blog and know the rules. I am surprised at being censored though, especially since i believe i made some valid points. It's your blog, your rules, but maybe this time, you posted a thread that is inconsequential in the big picture. Love him or hate him, EOD is a boss that loves this job and Weis is still an asshole. BTW, I am currently blonde, not previously : ) thanks for your efforts on this site.

Their record in winning settlements against the City certainly wouldn't qualify them as losers? I'm just sayin'...

I knew one boss in my career who didn't sell his soul to become a commander. One guy who did me a great favor and did it without me knowing about it and never asked for anything in return. I did find out and thanked him and he was almost embarrassed to hear me thank him. He also never lied to me. that man was John Michaelson. Someone else's experience might be different.

I was just a PO working relief on a beat car and had zero clout. He came out and told me he made commander because he was in the academy class with the superintendent and he did this guy a favor in the academy and was made a commander years later. The supe was Leroy Martin. Michaelson always seemed very direct and never passed around all the bullshit you hear now. If he thought someone was full of shit, he said so, PO or Captain, he said it.

Just my experience with the man. He was OK by me. Today's crop, forget it, I have no use for any of them. Most of them don't deserve to be pissed on if they are on fire. They are all clones of daley-made bosses, leaving footprints on each others backs to get ahead. Tony Riccio excepted.

..It's not that, it's the lemming sgts pick and choose who they want to slam. If you're not a "club member", i.e. clouted or hand-picked chosen, they f*ck with you. The chosen few don't make arrests or get assigned to the FBI and get their time due slips hidden when they don't bother coming in and are taken care of. The chosen few don't show up for work all day until 4pm then get their federal OT on the taxpayer's dime. It's all overlooked by mgmt because mgmt says it's ok. That's the way it is in that unit. Some people work hard and some don't. If you are a club member and walk in late, it is overlooked. There was a sgt in FCU who came in late every day around 12noon or later (and left at 4) and no one f*cked with him except the sgts in cold case who took note. He got no respect in that unit (made merit sgt and was a merit dic.) This is why morale is always so low. Once again it's do as I say not as I do.

posted it before, and I will post it again. Ed OD is true blue. To this day he is out there stopping assholes on the westside. If in fact someone posted something on the internet, that was said at a Christmas party, they are jagoffs.

TRUE BLUE??? Where were his comments about COZZI???? Go ahead and kiss his ass, you probably are friends with a few bosses, right? Easily impressed by status???? Anyone who was in an exempt position during the COZZI witch hunt can GO TO HELL in my book. I have yet to hear ANY of them stood up for COZZI.
