What is This?

Does anyone have any idea what this is?

It looks like a snow tire. Brand new judging by the treads. Wrangler. And where did some of our astute viewers find this tire?

That's a Ford Expedition. And it's parked in the Department HQ lot. In an "A" spot right up front. Who has a black unmarked Expedition with 4 brand new snow tires on it?

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

[UPDATE: grammar corrections]

OMG,

I guess J-Fed doesn't want to die in an accident due to poor tires and vehicle condition. I bet he has explicit standing orders for his drivers to avoid LSD at all costs too.

As I recall, the SAME vehicle was parked outside of 011 a few nights ago when the WEISel was walking around the station. Must be a coincidence.
But don't worry, while driving to our fallen brother's wake today in our pool car, the snow had already been cleared from most of the roads so we didn't need fancy snow tires.

Wow thats nice! Just checked online and those are about $250 a pop. That might be the total amount for all four tires and the spare in my shit beat car.

Let's go boys and girls! Get those pictures of decrepit squad cars rolling in to SCC. Strike while the iron's hot.

My question: Are any of you media hacks worth your salt going to run a story on the inequities surrounding this whole vehicle topic? Not only does Banjo-Boy get new snow tires, but his SUV is a 4-wheel drive model. Why do the lowly grunts in patrol that are "lucky" enough to get a new Tahoe have to settle for a 2-wheel/rear-drive model?

And a side note: WBBM 780 had J-Fraud referencing SCC when he spoke of "anonymous misinformation posted on a blog site"...or something to that effect.

Me thinks Jody-Boy's blood is slowly heating up towards the boiling point, and I hope he blows big time.

You've got the machine starting to misfire, SCC. Keep up the pressure. And to all you talking a big game about downing vehicles and submitting pictures...put your money where your mouth is, and be part of the noise in this cause.

Every department vehicle being driven by any supervisor just to and from work; and to attend meetings; or to respond to a police shotting in the middle of the night; etc.=take home car. All these vehicles should be switched with the department vehicles being driven by the patrol officers on a day to day basis.

You know how everyone who gets a take home car says, what the hell, at least its a car, who cares what condition its in. Do it now Jody. Its the right thing to do, you ignorant selfish cowardly FK who never had a bad day in his life.

And why does he need a large Expedition? That is probably so that he has enough room to transport all of his Fed friends around. I would love to see the supt patrol 007 by himself (in a pool car).

WTF?

So...

j-fart is so precious and so valuable that he gets to have an suv with 4wd AND snow tires while Policemen are literally taking their lives into their own hands especially the ones who pilot 2wd Tahoes with all season Police spec tires during the winter?

Anyone piloting Tahoes who were jack-potted with a preventable accident and or took suspension time due to inability to stop/maneuver or otherwise avoid a collision due to being equipped with hard-ass all season tires should be screaming bloody murder!

Being of "certain age" we remember when squad cars and even squadrols were outfitted with snow tires during the winter season.

Just more of shortshanks and j-fart energetically telling Policemen they're disposable and expendable.

So what if you get blown up in a car crash due to shitty, second rate equipment, shoddy and slap-dash maintenance and willful negligence by the city?

Just die already so j-fart & the dwarf can affix blame to you so they can maintain the status quo of corruption, deceit, dishonesty and thievery.

These clowns walk the backs off each other's shoes trying to be in the front to take credit for cooked crime stats.

But when it comes to admitting/accepting responsibility for the fucked up state of the Department (which they intentionally had a hand in) they're like boys in the school yard at recess running around trying to avoid the one chasing them with shit on a stick.

j-fart is the million dollar man... he's too important to run the same risks we peed on peons do.

Maybe ole elbow in a '73 Catalina with flapping fenders will drive close and peel a little paint and side trim off the jody-mobile and give him a West Side salutation...

"Fuck you lookin' at muthafukah? You never seen a muthafuckah that's broke an' ain't got insurance? You hit ME bitch! I'm suein' YO ASS, mark-ass muthafuckah!"

(oh by the way j-fart, since you're the Police now you can solve that little problem on your own right? big bad former feeb like yourself?)

Then we get to laugh when we see j-fart tooling around (no pun there) in a 130K Chevy Impala pool car with bald tires, uncertain alignment, decaying floor boards, hanging wires, every idiot light illuminated and the smell of raw monkey shit emanating from an indeterminable source.

Stop trying to run damage control to protect tom thumb & shortshanks.

It's out in the open (and notoriously so) that he gave the order not to salt so as not to kill shortshanks precious posies in the median planter.

You fools should dangle for trying to cover up a Policeman getting killed due to a mayoral friend making a meat-headed call to protect some damn flowers or save a few dollars in salt.

SCC,

The Daley administration is attempting to subvert a form of free and protected speech; by silencing this blog and subverting the truth expressed by CPD members, City of Chicago employees and concerned citizens.

This is Unconstitutional and a direct violation of the 1st Amendment.

1st Amendment:
Congress shall make no law respecting an establishment of religion, or prohibiting the free exercise thereof; or abridging the freedom of speech, or of the press; or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances.


Regarding the "freedom of speech." The 1st Amendment does not give us our freedom of speech, it prohibits the government from taking actions that abridge our freedom of speech

We do not get our rights from the government but rather we created the government in order to secure our rights. We had our rights before the government even existed. See the Declaration of Independence, which is part of US law, for more information on this.

The Declaration of Independence states that rights come from each person's "Creator." For some that could be God, for others maybe just their humanity. The important thing is just to know that rights do not come from the government and are beyond government's ultimate control.


"Congress shall make no law"... "abridging the freedom of speech"

That does not give us our freedom of speech, it prohibits the government from taking it away. It also does not say Congress shall not make certain laws... it is written that "Congress shall make NO law" abridging the freedom of speech. No law, regardless of whose freedom of speech they are trying to limit. Congress cannot touch speech and neither can Shortshanks or J-Fed.


"or the right of the people peaceably to assemble, and to petition the Government for a redress of grievances."

Our right to March at City Hall and protest the injustices we face is also secured by the 1st Amendment. It is time to exercise this right again in light of the current tragedy/coverup.


The main thing to keep in mind regarding the Constitution is that it was written in a way to restrain the powers of the federal government. The founders wanted to restrain the government's powers because back at that time they had just won their liberty from a tyrannical government and did not want the same happening again.

For some good videos on the Constitution, I recommend videos from Judge Andrew Napolitano and also Michael Badnarik's constitution class videos. These videos are posted on Youtube.

Information is power, people know your rights and fight to keep our way of life. We are the People's vanguard of freedom.

UNITED WE STAND, DIVIDED WE FALL!

Long Live SCC!!!

O.T. The Obama administration on Friday is proposing regulations aimed at protecting workers' retirement savings.

The safeguards would protect workers from conflicts of interest on the part of financial advisers who manage their 401(k)s and individual retirement accounts, an administration official said, speaking on condition of anonymity because the proposal had not yet been formally announced.

The proposed regulations would require retirement investment advisers and money managers to either: base investment advice on objective computer models certified by independent experts; or refrain from steering workers into funds they are affiliated with or from which they are receiving a commission.

Can he make that retroactive and include the Mayor's nephew in that?

Note: I didn't get the nitrogen filled tires, but they were $40 a tire a couple weeks ago when I was tire shopping. Not counting the HIGHEST sales tax in the nation!

It was absolutely incrediable to see the fleet of beautifull SUV's and Chevy's arriving and the very important brass exiting them, many even with drivers. My partner and I arrived at the wake in a horrible pool car with 126,000 miles on it. While driving we could smell fumes, the steering vibrated when braking, and the rear end sounded like it was going to fall off. I wonder.... Do the brass respond to 911 calls from the public in their beautifull cars cause we do in our shit pool car. Just a though.

My beat car, not a pool car, has accident damage on the body, as do several other beat cars, they are not downed for a pool car because there are NO pool cars.

You put this tired old Ford Crown Vic in drive, count to three, and then it drops into gear. I will not go over 35mph in the thing. The right outside mirror cannot be adjusted. There are other minor problems but basically it is ready to be retired, ready to go to Unit 993, a 993 car is retired for parts or scrap.

Maybe we should start writing "993" on these shitbox squads in yellow grease pencil to let the public know the junk we drive. This is what the public pays for in their high taxes and increased fees. We have not seen one new Tahoe in my district, not one.

Oh yes, keep paying those parking boxes, the mayor says they are good for the city. No more revenue coming in from those, how long? Another 74 years?

How on earth can the citizens keep swallowing this crap without storming City Hall and dragging the master criminal daley out by his heels and tying him to a parking box for public stoning?

I guess that it is below J-Pud’s dignity to drive a pool car! I would like to see how he would handle a broken and bent seat on a daily basis. Maybe his excessive use of steroids would keep him from getting a bad back And maybe with his pull he could get a floor mat in a car to cover up the thirty wires it is supposed to cover. Or have the front end fixed so the hard pull from the damaged aligned does not pull you into the parked cars. But of course if you refuse to drive one of these pool cars YOU are the malcontent.

Hey Mr. Superintendent! Since there is nothing wrong with pool card have every exempt give up their car and take out a run of the mill pool car from the back row at motor maintenance not the front row. Mr. Superintendent in case you do not know motor maintenance keeps a dozen front line pool cars out of the fleet every day just in case one of the exempt cars needs service. Some nights we ride three deep because there are no cars available but there are a whole row of front line cars just sitting there for your boys. But again I’m just guessing since you are an outsider they never tell you this stuff. How does it feel to make your kind of money and no one tells you anything?

That vehicle is actually a Ford Expedition XLT EL. Base price for the 4x4 model is $42,935 before taxes. That's a bare bones model. Standard engine: 5.4L SOHC 3V V8, with a 6 speed automatic trans. Seating for 8, comfortably.

The new tires on J-GOOF's ride are positively dwarfed by his landing strip forehead and his hydrogen-filled 55-gallon drum head! And the new thread is not as deep as his weight lifting stretch marks!

RIP Sergeant Haymaker.

In the late 1980's, the city was short marked cars, but it had an abundance of unmarked cars. They put blue lights on the unmarked cars and gave them to the sergeants.

This is an option that would work today. Take away the low mileage take-home unmarked cars and give them to the district sergeants.

Guys, you have 2WD Tahoes, because that is the only "pursuit rated" SUV available. The 4WD Special Service vehicle is basically a civilian one with cop gear in it.

And his tires are flled with nitrogen, not hydrogen. I bet there are a lot of guys out there that wish they were filled with hydrogen. Remember the Hindenburg?

Still....that is way too nice of a ride for that hack to be driving around in.

If you can, put nitrogen in your tires. They make a difference in gas mileage, not a lot, but they do.

I put nitrogen in my tires and get about 15-20 extra miles per tank on average. It adds up.

You can get it free when you buy tires at Cassidy or they'll do it for $15 if you bring your car in.

Better yet, the nitrogen gas is denser than regular air and stays in the tires better when they are cold, not as much topping off with air in the winter.

That said, JFed speaketh with forked tongue when it comes to the welfare of the rank/file.

My suggestion: log into the nearest PDT/Hot Desk UNDER YOUR PC # and run the plate as soon as you discover the last four digits. Please report back to SCC with your findings and any other peculiar goings-on that will have transpired subsequent to your SOS inquiry.

Then spend your suspension dreaming up and concocting other ways to verify the obvious.

The former Chicago police officer convicted of a bar beating seen around the world has been charged with violating his probation by failing a drug test and could wind up serving prison time after all.

Anthony Abbate, 41, appeared today before Circuit Judge Arthur Hill for allegedly testing positive for opiates and set a hearing on the allegations for March 12.

The judge set bail at $40,000. His father posted bond immediately afterward and Abbate was released, according to court records and his attorney, Peter J. Hickey III. Hickey declined to comment on the alleged violation.

RIP Officer Haymaker, your sisters and brothers in blue will take it from here. Thank you for your service, because of you our world is safer.

To the Haymaker family...I am sorry you are having to endure this. I went through this very thing 8 years ago and if there are any comforting words I can give you, it's that time does make things a little easier to deal with. I still grieve 8 years later but not as bad as I did for the first few years. Everytime I hear of another police officer being killed I feel the pain for the family. God Bless and know that Sgt. Haymaker is with you. He will send you signs, you just have to be open to them.

As for Mayor Daley, if anyone owes this amazing police officer an enormous debt of gratitude it's you. I know that the entire fleet of vehicles that the chicago police have are not taken care of. They have bald tires, mechanical problems and the mileage on these cars are extremely high. I love how Mayor Daley tries to shine in the death of an honorable man....just like a crook would. Where does the money go that is suppose to fix these vehicles and maintain them or how about why haven't you taken some of the grant money given from the president to purchase new vehicles? I don't know, but I do know we lost a good man to a greedy crook!!"

who gives a shit about what exempt tags may/may not look like?

exempts make doubly damn sure they're not in harm's way. that's why they have servants/drivers and in j-fart's case a tail car or three.

they're never directly in peril of ANY KIND of bodily harm.

when is an exempt ever followed home from work/run off the road/taken rolling gunfire from another vehicle while behind the wheel?

HMPH!

that only happens to you peons, not weis or the exempts. they're important... without their steady hands and depth of law enforcement experience, CPD would certainly grind to a halt. they are SOLEY responsible for the success CPD enjoys as the premier municipal law enforcement agency of the country.

you uneducated CPD rabble are very much interfering with his plans! it's bad enough you cost the city it's olympic bid and his chance to be director of security but you don't dare get in the way of his parlaying his experience as CPD stupidintendent into directorship of the fbi!

Now die bravely and quietly already... 42 extra-short, j-fart & the exempts have already told you you're disposable and expendable by their pleasure. Their joy is pretending they're concerned about your well being while starving you of equipment, resources and training.

They want to be sure Police Officers have plenty of stress and aggravation. If they kill off enough of you before you retire then it's a financial saving for the city coupled with shrinking the Department through attrition.

Once they get the numbers down to about 3k to 5k total then the aldermen, certain exempts and rev'runs who are in the know on the coming privatization of CPD will get nice bids for "security contractors" and you can see CPD reduced to $12 to $15 an hour security with no benefits or pension after the city of chicago successfully divorces itself from it's pension & benefit obligations.

then a miracle will occur and chicago will be magically flush with more money than ever before!

you blue shirted rabble have no vision. just ask 42 extra-short, j-fart, the exempts, alderfools and rev'runs!

Not only does it have new tires, it's a 4 wheel drive. Plus if you ever walk by it and look very closely in the back of the 3rd seat, you will see the gun locker in it. Not that any of his drivers could pass the power test or qualify. That's only for us lowly grunts. I know every night Weisel goes to bed contemplating how he can fuck us and the department more. For every new way he comes up with, Shortshanks gives him a gold star like they did in kindergarten.

I wonder how much longer it takes for us to cause J-Fed's veins to pop out of his head and he turns beet red like shortshanks. Then they can stand next to each other and both stutter and mumble during the press conferences. Hey Weisel, does shortshanks ever let you look at your balls that he has in a jar in his office.

Scc,

Those are not snow tires. They are good for everything. Those are an optional upgraded tire that come with certain packages for that vehicle.

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!!!

Masters, get the hell off the blog. Do you think anyone in the city doesn't know the exempt cars,especially J-Feds. Everyone has seen him in it and its got more lights on it than a Christmas tree.

Are you f@#king serious you jack-ass ?!!!
Like any one of these armored,exempt vehicles are going to show up at an in-progress call, or be used as a covert vehicle !!
If the criminals and bangers want to know what the plates look like all they have to do is turn their f#$king scum-bag heads to the right and look around the parking lot as they go through the back door of headquarters ,or to go to update their address for the sex offender registry(another damn joke).
The way I see it ,the only person that would be concerned about being "I.D." by the bad guys is the motherf#$ker driving it who has to park it on the street while they go to get Jody's dry cleaning and his lunch !!
THOSE VEHICLES WILL NEVER,I REPEAT NEVER,SHOW UP AT A HOT CALL,UNLESS THERE IS A CAMERA THERE.!!BY THEN THERE IS NO THREAT !!
They will however show up when it's time to put one of up in the ground !! Think of it as a really comfortable vehicle( WITH REALLY GOOD TIRES)to carry ghouls to your funeral.
p.s keep up the good work secret Squirrel

Heard after the all the media attention, Daley caved in and gave a contract to Jose's used tires so we can get better tires on all the vehicles. We will be able to take the cars there and pick the best used tires we can find. Fuck you shortshanks and J-Fed.

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?

Fuck You!

They should be made to drive MARKED units everywhere including home. This would give J-Fed and the rest of the Gold Stars a taste of reality. They could learn what it is like to man a beat car and get constant handwavers. They could see what it is like to get cutoff and flagrantly disrespected while driving a MARKED unit.

They could see how it feels to have your every neighbor bothering you about every police related and unrelated issue.

FUCK YOU and FUCK THEM TOO!

Dude, relax....If you think for a split second that the gang members and criminals don't already know what our unmarked squads look like...your kidding yourself.

And lastly, the plates are regular Illinois plates just like every other car on the road, so there is no harm in showing those online. The only difference is who they register to and only folks with LEADS access can find that out.

All reports for the LSD streets and sanitation drivers are to be reported on their radio's, the scanner frequency is 453.100 or 453.650 not on the nextel, or through cell phone calls. Review the camera's along Lake Shore Drive, see where the salt trucks were parked at the exit ramps, if they were, or did the Foreman or Acting Foreman check all ramps, overpasses to ensure safety. For Weis, and his Assistant to say two different versions, uh oh.

Hopefully the Sergeants family hired an attorney soon to get the city and state from not checking the vehicle until they have someone to review that Pool Vehicle.

Some answers may surface, or maybe not. Let's hope that the city did not play save money to limit salt production on the Drive. If there was slush, water, the plows should of pushed the water and slush.

This is a hard lesson for everyone to learn, because a life was taken away and for what? A Burglary at a store, or a black ice road that should of been checked and salted? I hope they don't blame the Sergeant who cannot defend himself.

Bless the Police Sergeant.

My guess is that j-fed gets to work early, around 0600. HQ is at 3510 S Michigan Ave. The entrance (the only entrance) to the parking lot is about 150 feet west of Michigan Ave on 35th St on the south side of the street.

Any member of the public would have the right to stand on 35th St, west of Michigan Ave, across the street on the north side of 35th St with a camera. You would be exercising your rights to be there and take pictures.

Good luck and thanks.

God, are they fucking lazy or what? Don't the experienced reporters teach the new reporters how to get up from their fucking computers and actually do some leg work? Or is that passe'? Because that could be the problem with the lack of media coverage in this town. They wait for something to cross their desk instead of going out and finding a story themselves.

your claim to being 'sympathetic' rings hollow.

as does your claim to not being a 'journalist'.

which, by the way, there are scant few actual 'journalists' anywhere near this city/county.

what is 'predictable' is your attitude that, by being a 'sympathetic civilian', you are, somehow, doing us a favor.

promote a P.O. to an exempt member , many of us passed the sgt. test and now working for merit lt. , merit captains and political commanders . we are QUALIFIED , just not connected to city hall.

just a thought you'll be gone next year .

I hope Ike doesn't have you on tape with recommendations for command changes . You did demote 1 deputy superintendent to Lt., had second thoughts and promoted him to a chief . What were you thinking .

It's Not an Expedition, It's an Expedition EL (Extended Length).

Several inches longer than a Chevy Suburban, and priced more than $2,000 over a Regular Expedition. (the give away is the full length rear doors that do not cut into the wheel wells).

That small nub antenna on the passenger roof is for the Navigation System Package, so his inept (student) drivers can find there way around the city.

Yes, a Big Tall Man like Jody Needs a Big Vehicle for his Big Ego!

Why did he not lease an Escape like Luberman?

NAH, he would look like a Sissy to his FBI friends, who are laughing at him no matter what he does!

Why does he need so many vehicles at his disposal?

Why can't he drive himself?

Thanks for the single constructive response to my request. For the guy above, though, well forgive me for thinking that you guys could use any kind of public support. You are doing just SO WELL all on your own here. Close the blog and become a little private copper club if that's what you want. Every thread here contains fearful, conspiratorial comments that J-Fed and the exempts are watching your every move. You'd think you'd welcome the support of private citizens who aren't afraid of losing their career if they speak out, appear at your city hall rallies, etc etc.

It might feel good to continue flailing against everyone and everything, always playing the poor blue-shirt copper against the world, but it's not going to get you the public support or the fair contract that you purportedly want and that most of your deserve.

You know, the ones that can be removed by the prisoner so that the prisoner can reach all the way around the drivers throat if he wants. I was just wondering.

Maybe I will take some pictures of that next time I get a Tahoe.

if, and i say, if, you've been reading this blog, it's articles, and posted comments, for any length of time, you would know that there's far more here than just '...flailing against everyone and everything...' by '..poor blue-shirt copper(s) against the world...'.

and, if, in fact, you are a 'private citizen' who isn't '...afraid of losing their career if they speak out, appear at your city hall rallies, etc etc...', then why would anything posted here dissuade you from being that 'sympathetic citizen'?

because, if you haven't noticed, most of the articles, and comments thereto, speak of harmful realities which affect everyone still residing within the confines of this city and county.

everyone.

you know, including the 'public'.

if some comments reflect feelings of frustration at the apparent general lack of 'public' interest in facing those harmful realities, and interest in understanding the many sources of the causes of same, what, pray tell, might you suggest would be more to the 'public's' liking?
