From the comments:
- To the officers who sent the photos to the Sun-times and to SCC for putting the story on the front of the blog instead of leaving it in the comment section shame on you.
Huh? What have you been smoking Sparky?
- While watching the press conference with Dugan and Jackson the reporters were asking questions they could have only gotten from this blog. This 14 yr old tried this in several other districts and has fine tuned his act and finally got away with actually getting in a squad car. Why was no one alerted with a city wide bulletin?
Why don't we ask someone? Don't officers deserve some kind of safety net from those who are supposed to "have their backs" as the Superintendent so blithely stated a week ago? Or are we just going to take Monique's word that he never had contact with the public, didn't drive the car, didn't write tickets? The number of dropped balls on this one is incredible.
- Anyone can get in any station.
That would seem to be a problem then.
- You have plainclothes officers who dress worse than street thugs and have the tattoos to match. Are you so ashamed of your star that you never wear it? Granted the old stars were better, but it doesn't matter. I always wore my star with pride, I earned it. Anyone that does not wear an ID card needs to be challenged and if they are insulted that you don't know them shame on them, too.
Then that would put the blame on the sergeants, lieutenants, captains, inspectors, and assorted brass, wouldn't it? What's your point here?
- If you SCC had left the story buried in the comments section and not posted on the lead page, I truly believe this would not be the lead story everywhere. You have ruined a W/C's good career and yes he is one of the best.
Then you are high. Or drunk. By the time we posted it, there were 20 comments about it in the comment sections. By the time we hit roll call, the arrest report was already in the Captain's hands and he said he got 43 Blackberry messages about it. This one wasn't staying quiet, not by a long shot.
- The Sgt. messed up by not actually checking on the car and instead I am sure used his PDT or the radio to log the car. You can actually put no contact on a log when you don't see the car and that can happen.
We're sure that goes over real well with the Captain. In this day and age of GPS everywhere, your log better match the readout. False Official Reports and all that. You want a list of sergeants at Callback right now for that exact charge?
- The PO in the car - I feel most sorry for her. I can tell you that sometimes you work with someone for 8 hours and they never talk and it is not her responsibility to check his ID or star and in the winter you cannot see everyone's gun.
We haven't blamed her. The comments have been a bit touchy, but we reserve judgment on that one. It's winter, things get covered. We're glad it didn't turn out badly.
- Anything about this job can be learned here in black and white on this blog. You can pick up the latest rumors, who gets transferred, what bosses suck, which bosses are good.
Wrong on most of those accounts.
- You have truly done a disservice this time SCC. I hope you are proud of yourself and this blog.
So you're one of those bosses that never believed sunlight was the best disinfectant? You believed in covering up the wrong doing, sweeping illegal conduct under the carpet, letting those who were "born to command" get away with murder and outright theft while everyone else had to play by the rules? Wow, we can smell the "merit" from way over here.
- I for one will only check to see if you have the guts to publish this and then I will never view this blog again and yes I will give a clue to who I am.
Retired Sgt. KB from 003
We'll, we had the guts. Hope you have a nice retirement. It's obvious that we can't respect your service based on your interpretation of covering up wrongdoing. We won't miss your visit.
