Command Changes

Well, that would actually be "Command Change" as in one single change:
  • A big THANK YOU to Mike Masters for putting the petulant Bob Lopez in his place yesterday! How dare a 30+ year veteran stand up to the Chief Of Staff. Your CAPS attendance is down Bob! And you need more gang dispersals! True, homicides are down, but we need event #s! Sadly, Masters and J-Fed then assured Bob that his spot was safe. BUT then at the funeral J-Fed changed his mind and dumped Lopez! Now some may say that dumping someone at a funeral for a fallen brother is not classy...but when has J-Fed been classy toward 025?
And how did they break the news to Bobby?
  • ... it would interest you to know that the Sup went to Cmdr Lopez at the conclusion of the services at Bethel and told him that he was being demoted and he can retire or be Bt 390.
And the soap opera continues.

It was also mentioned that Mayor Daley would love to figure out how to privatize the Chicago Police Deaprtment.

The Principal repeatedly yelled at the P.O.s and said she stated student had a gun just to get the Police there faster. She should have been locked up. Remember Haymacker. I like Eve for that.

In the lawsuit, another supervisor changed his testimony. Amazing what happens when money is involved. There was some racial stuff going on, but it wasn't on Eve's part.

2/26/2010 07:57:00 AM

So sorry evil eve. Everybody was there from the unit. You and puss head odonnell made us stop working and go to court every day as so called support.

Eve never testified in acourt of law on anything ever, ever. She babbbled on and on and that is what gave the a jury, yes a jury, the veridict to penalize the city. Because of her testimony the defendant won. All because of her. Yes absolutely the defense played the race card, but because of evils lack of experience she fell right into their trap.

So FU EVE you dirty rotten lying piece of poop. You received money undeserving to you as an acting commander, because you were a lying trap of crap. You get what you deserve.

Can I ask a question? Did the 4th amendment change? OZ is telling everyone that chief wonder bread ernie wants the unit to take money off people and inventory even if there is no probable cause? Basically inventory the money just to invetory it, and maybe, just maybe, the person will not come back to pick up. So we win. From what i read in the law books that doesn't fly. I just want to know, did the law change? Or is this goof ball oznut just trying to lay in bed with ernhead and anything goes. Dont mean to sound stupid but WTF?

I heard the Alderman had a problem with Commander Lopez, so the Superintendent felt obligated to address his displeasure by removing him from that position. Well Jfed, if you were held at that same standard, you would have been gone the first 3 months you were here. Also, the majority of the Aldermen only deal with you because they know they have to because they see clearly that the Mayor sees how ineffective you are, and he is still allowing you to stay here. How about this, 9 out of 10 police officers of all rank think you are a stupid idiot and can't wait for you to leave!

Why would you base any Commanders' position on what the Aldermen or a few screaming citizens may say? No one can be liked by all. Also, what exactly can a Commander do to appease an Alderman except kiss his ass! What else? It is up to the Aldermen to stimulate the economy in their areas, to make sure the area is less conducive to criminal activity by putting money into lights, etc., and it is their job to ensure the citizens are allowed to excel within their own communities. We cannot feed these people nor bring jobs into these communities. Guess what, that is what the majority of these people are trying to do, its called survive!

The Aldermen always put it back on the police. Just like when they host Town Hall Meetings. They invite the police (all the fucking brass show up!), the city agencies, etc. and the Aldermen NEVER address what THEY have done for the area they are paid over $100,000.00 a year to oversee. Lets keep in mind that this is a part time job for them.
Commanders work at least 80 hours a week, especially in horrible neighborhoods like 025, they have plenty of Aldermen to deal with, Community groups, ministers, schools/principals, etc. etc. etc. every single day. In reality, it is really impossible to do all of that, oversee a District, the Tactical Teams, each watch, the schools, the bullshit meetings they are tasked with daily, the bullshit reports they are tasked with daily and then they are asked to come up with more bullshit ideas on how to decrease crime every fucking week. Jfed and crew, if you are so fucking smart and you have all the stats and the answers, you would not need a Commander now would you! Since crime analysis is that simple and all you have to do is put the police in that perfect spot, Jfed and Mike Masters, you come up with a fucking plan! If all that BS worked that you continually spout off, YOU take a month out and play Commander in 025, 015, 011, 003, 004, 005, 006, 007, 008 or 009! Come on show us! Not together, each of you take a District! Why don't you and Mike Masters sit in the hot seat for a month, that's it, since you are so fucking smart and you have all the answers that a civilian non police slithering piece of trash can challenge a police officer with 30 years of history!

Can you live up to the challenge?

That's not what I heard. Word is that Dugan was selected (again) to be the hatchet man and break the news to Bobby, as he did to Eric Washington not too long ago. WEISel wouldn't have the guts to do it himself, when Masters has all the Deputy Supts. at his beck & call to do whatever is demanded of them at a moment's notice.
I don't think this was any surprise to Lopez. They've probably been wringing their hands up on the fifth floor of 3510 for some time in deciding when would be the best time to throw Lopez under the bus. Bobby's demands that Latinos receive a bigger piece of the pie made a lot of people nervous.

And one last thing why would you post a picture of a one of our unmarked vehicles online!!?? We have no idea what the intended use of this vehicle was or is for. Regardless if it's J-feds, some other exempt, or a PO don't post pictures of our department unmarked vehicles online. Other people besides the police read this blog ex. CRIMINALS or GANG MEMBERS. And to quote you

"Why, that appears to be an exempt tag! Anyone have any info on whose car this might be?"

Hey Thanks for letting the world know what some of plates look like!! Good looking out!!!

Lopez seemed like a good guy, unlike that retard we had for a Commander before him, but at the same time, who gives a fuck? Can't really feel bad for Lopez, he's not going to be in the poor house.

Hopefully, whatever new Commander we get won't be a stroke like the other Commander before Lopez. LAPA bites the dust again it looks like.

Hmmmmmm....if you notice on the walls plastered with portraits of the former Commanders from 025, there hasn't been an African American one yet. That would be interesting. The curse will always live on......

This was posted on the Chicago Sun Times website, under the article; No ice where crash killed cop: Weis

Simple enough to catch Weis in his lie.... check weather records on the date and time in question.... what was the temp from midnight till the time of the accident?

When was LSD last salted according to procedure? Was there salt on the road at the time of accident?

What is the recorded temp at the time of investigation recorded by Major Accident investigators? Is it different than what the unbiased weather service says?

Use the weather history to determine whether he's lying or not. Use statements from the drivers and any records of proof showing when LSD was last salted.

Weis is already trying to lay the blame for a vehicle in poor condition being sent into active use by motor maintenance employees.

Weis will eventually try and blame the sgt. for failing to perform mechanical checks and tests on the car before he drove it, wait and see. He just doesn't have the 8ALLS to do it right now, but eventually he will start blaming only the sgt. and refuse the weather, salt and vehicle release from motor maintenance facts.

Weis has already performed his cover up, and there's nothing anyone can do about it now. Just like he did with Quello owning a home that guns and drugs were being sold from with her own daughter living there..... according to Weis she was cleared of any responsibility as the landlord on his mere sayso alone without an investigation.

This is how it works folks, Daley kicks his peons into the media and tells them IT'S OVER, and there's nothing you can do about the lies.

Every good, honest, hard-working cop like Officer Haymaker is a "hero" just reporting for duty.

What, you think they carry guns and wear body-armor for shits and giggles?

Most of the cop-haters here are afraid to even call 911, let alone intervene in a crime-in-progress or investigate or apprehend a violent or dangerous criminal.

We all get to throw out Daley on February 22, 2011. The new Mayor can fire Weis the second after he takes the oath of office.

Is 003 really that bad that its being used as a punishment

2/27/2010 12:08:00 AM


Depends on what you mean by THAT BAD! I spent 10 yrs in 018 when I came on the job. Wonderful place w/ the Gold Coast, The Mag Mile, Rush Street and the nightlife and all. But it also had Cabrini-Green. Back in those days, that was a rip-roaring mofo housing project. Having a chance to air out your head on occasion in other parts of 018, made it easier.


Later, I got dumped to 015. It was the dumping ground of the north side. NOBODY went there by accident. LeRoy O'Shield was the DC at the time. It was a GREAT experience. Great people, great bosses (mostly), very detached from the REAL CPD. O'Shield, who avoided going to jail by wearing a wire for the Feds at O'Hare, was hated by everyone. THAT is what creates an us against him situation, where EVEN THE WC hated the DC!


Many from 015 are able to go on to bigger and better things. The ghetto experience on the resume truly is an asset, particularly to the clout boys who get gold stars and have no clue what they are doing. They NEED coppers and Sgts on their "teams" to make them shine.


Plus, it makes it easier to try and justify promoting their clout babies... (eg. "Of course she can be a DC in 011. She worked the streets in 015!"). It was here that I also met Alan Haymaker. Great man.


Anyway, after all this babbling, my point is that wherever you might be, how bad it is, is determined by who is running things and how willing they are to make working there an acceptable, even enjoyable experience. In 015, there was a concerted effort among the watch supervisors to protect the coppers from the usual Dept BS, like Dept Veh Accidents, Inspectors beefs, court deviations, etc. It was almost like a game for the white shirts to see who could write the best paper and get the DC and chain of command to sign off on it. As a Sgt there, we were happy to have people show up for work, so we tried to take care of the people who did.

Completely inappropriate. He should have been told on work premises. Not when the man is paying his respects at a funeral.

For that big mass on his shoulders, he has no class. And Masters is a punk.

You know what? I applaud the guy for speaking his mind. And unless he was a total jag like John Thomas or something, after 30 years I'd say he deserves a little more respect.

jfed and masters are tyrants. Hopefully he told them to go fuck themselves when they told him.

I never worked for Lopez but the one dealing I had with him he was first class. He didn't know me from Adam but gave he his card along with his personal cell phone # and told me if I needed anything to give him a call.

Great story being told by a certain commander who is going back down to captain so he can grab the retirement at 55. Apparently his friend the boss at streets and san called him on the phone screaming about the police department trying to blame him for his call of no rock salt on lsd. The conversation was so heated that the shorter of the two who loves mayor daley hung up on the cmdr. Me wonders if this is the anonymous exempt rank who has nothing to lose by squealing to the press.

Lopez knew this was comming,so no biggie.He will laugh his way to the bank. I hope he has the sense to write a book and fast! It would be a best seller for sure. Expecially the last chapters. Expose the patronage and the "phone call" system of filling every "unit" position. And expose the current administration.You were there and you saw it all.

Shorty might renew his contract, and that of Brust, and Masters as a last gasp of his sinking ship.

Better than fire them, keep them on, assign them to Call Back with some bitch of a P.O. as their boss hounding every move they make. No take home SUV, punch the clock at 2300, low seniority furlough, no news conferences, no Daley to cry to, check them for wires or jsut have them sit in a bare room for eight hours a day to remind them what they did to Bill Cozzi.

I can think of a thousand things to torture them with. We need to elect another Mayor, like Hoffman or Jimmy Mauer.

[...]Well Jfed, if you were held at that same standard, you would have been gone the first 3 months you were here. Also, the majority of the Aldermen only deal with you because they know they have to because they see clearly that the Mayor sees how ineffective you are, and he is still allowing you to stay here.[...]

This statement of being ineffective is only true if his mission was to "improve" the CPD.

Myself, I think he was brought here to be a one-man wrecking crew; he's done that job superbly!

Can I ask a question? Did the 4th amendment change? OZ is telling everyone that chief wonder bread ernie wants the unit to take money off people and inventory even if there is no probable cause? Basically inventory the money just to invetory it, and maybe, just maybe, the person will not come back to pick up. So we win. From what i read in the law books that doesn't fly. I just want to know, did the law change? Or is this goof ball oznut just trying to lay in bed with ernhead and anything goes. Dont mean to sound stupid but WTF? Where are these supervisors coming from?


having see both of these mushheads lead the troops in vice.I can only say that Oz is only out for himself and is bonified merit idiot with no clue of being a leader. Brown plain and simple should have been shown the door for the shit he has done. If this this department had any pride they would punish the correct people not scapegoats with minor infractions.

If someone out there has a good copy of the Special Wanted Bulletin for the offender in that case please call the Lieutenant on First Watch in 10th District. I'll trade you the story of how that bulletin came to be for a copy, and yes I did try to get it from Graphic Arts.

Hey Ch2. We are "blaming" the the The 2 guys the buck should stop with, not the entire S&S dept.

As for all of the stories over the years about various city departments, why never a story about how and who created the "large work crews," the amount of assigned work everyday, the priorities of work orders? etc.

The city always blames the unions (ironic for dumbocratic administrations) for the operation of city services.

Bob Lopez,

On the day that the picture of a dinosaur appeared on your office door at the Training Division it was done "tongue in cheek".

But, you left it there. (proudly)

At the time you knew it was significant of a type of police officer too quickly fading from the ranks of our profession.

Officers who loved the job, loved going to work, as well as the unparalleled camaraderie, and traditions. Officers who truly loved our city and the good people in it.

As a supervisor dinosaurs were the men or women who lead from the front, by example and years of experience. Who did their best to protect and educate all of the officers under their charge.

That is the man I remember you to have as a Sgt.

Here's wishing you the best and I hope to see you at a retirement party when you decide it's time and not before.

I am a copper who has been in 025 a while and in plain clothes but I can tell you one thing for sure we are done working and when I say we I mean that as a whole district.

You dumped a good boss which was needed in 025. Now you can have your alderman get your gang dispersals and everything else. We are done working for assholes.

You think we are kidding but wait, watch, and see as the numbers decline !

anyone who keeps working is dumb as dog shit, wake up boys and girls

I always said...003 and 006 (maybe 005) were the dumping grounds for North and Southsiders coppers always feared being dumped to 002 (the Duece) or 015... for those that never worked anywhere but Area 3 Districts or 017/016 ...A BIG DIFFERENCE!

I'll take 015 any day and the Deuce is not that bad .....

Is it fair for the Troopers in those Districts? NO! But the Stigma exists...sorry!

Lopez does NOTHING wrong, has 30 plus years ,was a good boss, and gets the axe

Tobias is almost indicted, but he gets to sit around and draw down a HUGE salary doing nothing...

Wedster commits multiple rule violations, gives false statements and worse, and she's still drawing a gold star salary...

but stand up to Weis, Masters,Brust and Dugan especially if you're a minority exempt and two things happen...
you get shitcanned or a shit command.

Maybe before the next promotions maybe Lopez should bid to a District he wants and settle in. Relax, then when Jody leaves, LAPA will put he where he wants.

Fuck Jody, 11 months to go, then there will be a lot of damage to undo when he goes.

I can't wait for election time! I have been telling everyone in the streets wherever I work to vote against Daley!

As in this street stop, is courtesy of your Mayor Daley, remember that at election time! HA! HA! HA! It has been working! Everyone I come into contact with is pissed off and hate Mayor Daley!
From the Yuppies to ghetto shitbirds!

Mayor Daley, get ready to retire!

From Da Pelon!

Amen, I get paid $75,000 a year to tell citizens that Daley is a thief and an asshole and I have been doing it for quite some time. Sometimes I even get paid overtime to help spread the word on daley the supreme evildoer!

Now that we are getting close to election time the tempo has increased.

Now isn't that turning the tables on daley? For years daley has used patronage workers (City employees) to get out the vote. Now daley has a whole lot of the police department doing the exact opposite, getting out the vote AGAINST HIM!

DUMP DALEY 2011

BEAT THAT DRUM LONG AND HARD, DUMP THE MISERABLE PRICK ALREADY!

Now wouldn't that be something? We help defeat daley and he pays us to do it? I love it!

You sound just like Lil Tommy Byrne, when he was commander of

However Bob was given the news it was a classless act by classless Brass. Jesus Christ wait a day or 2,our fellow officer was just laid to reset. This shows you the mindset of Weis, O'keefe, Brust, etc. They are not and never will be the Police. They do not care about us. Once the cameras are off after the funeral they go after one of the few bosses who looked out for his people. If I die in the line of duty my wife knows not to let Weis or Daley in the funeral.

Good luck Bob whatever you decide to do.

had to laugh at that, retire or be Beat 390...think that he'll retire, to take advantage of an exempt pension and get paid healthcare, if he's old enough....come to think of it, if I were the sup, I would tell each and every exempt person and all lts in units, without exception, you're going (meaning get your ass out of the office) out to a district, one full week each month (meaning no time due or furlough days); you'll work either 3rd or 1st watch, in a marked car, with a radio, and without a driver; you'll be on the radio, and expected to respond to assignments (8.5 hours in most districts, 10 hours in the 10 hour districts); this would be a full fledged version of the current exempt "Friday Night Lights/Lightweights". I would do the same...or, if not acceptable, either retire, quit, or take a demotion....what, shortshanks doesn't like it?; the exempts can't/won't do it/don't like it?/"we're too important?"/"we can't stay up late at night?"....well, my tenure as sup is over in a few days, I guess....just another way to show the political corruption, ineptness, and unprofessionalism of the dept.....

I have never posted on this blog before, but recent events compel this response. Bob Lopez is, without question, the best commander the 25th District is likely to see for a very long time. He always told the supervisors to take care of the troops, and he meant it. It wasn't just rhetoric. To answer a poster who said we should have a black commander, It should make no difference to a street copper what color or nationality his district commander is, because, all we want is to be well-treated and to know that someone has our backs during this difficult time, and we knew Bob always did the best he could for us. What a change he was from 'Evil Sal', the worst commander for whom I have ever worked. The only question that remains is, will Bob's replacement be a 'punisher' to 'straighten' us out, or a Jodi suck-ass, who will only be interested in his own advancement, 'cause I don't see any more Bob Lopez's waiting in the wings for command positions. Undoubtedly, we are going through a difficult time, but remember, the vast majority of the men and women who comprise the Chicago Police Department make it a pleasure to come to work. Weis and Daley may not give a damn about us, but we care about each other, and that is the most important thing about this job. No matter how much they beat on us, we still take care of each other and get the job done. Ignore the evil, self serving politicians (read aldermen) and top brass, work to get rid of Daley next year and we will surely get rid of Jodi, and keep the faith because I promise you...........it will get better!

Sick of bosses and police officers feeling so bad when big bosses are demoted. Officers in patrol get crapped on every day of their career here in Chicago by the department when we are the backbone of this place. And some bosses who make over $100,000 to $125,000 + , had take home cars for years and years and may get demoted.... Boo hoo. Give me a gold star, I'll do their job for $20,000 less and I'll drive my own car to and from work. If you can retire on this job even after getting demoted to Lieutenant you are much better situation than the majority of this Department who busts their butt going to 20+ jobs a night dealing with BS and getting crapped on by white shirts. No compassion here for bosses (good or bad) who get demoted to civil service rank. You should be lucky you were fortunate enough to have had what you had as long as you did. So sad, too bad.
