Boss Revolt?

Has one or more been pushed too far?
  • Kudos to Joe Patterso A/1 Dep Chief for telling Masters and the screaming skull why crime in Area 1 is up ("they are unemployed and have nothing to lose. Its been this way for 40+ years in Englewood. Why should it change now? The only difference is the lack of police presence in these areas due to manpower."). Supposedly happened at a CAR meeting Wednesday for Area 1. The screaming skull went berzerk, and none other than Masters had to explain to Jody why Pterson was so upset.
The truth hurts. And the truth is we're on the verge of a disaster here. Midnights across the city are running at 30% undermanned. We actually had someone from a west side district e-mail us the sheets from the first 35 days of the year and they were operating down 3 to 5 cars per night for 32 of those days. That's not just insane - that's a recipe for disaster.

J-Failure has already lost the rank and file. Did everyone hear about the 16 March meeting at West Side Tech? An e-mailer tells us the total number of officers who showed up was three. Three officers from a Department that numbers nearly 10,000. We verified it through an exempt who has written to us in the past.

Now we hear that a Deputy Chief is finally admitting the manpower shortage is affecting policing? We can only say, "It's about fucking time."

The TRUTH IS ALSO FUCKN OBVIOUS! And has been for a long time. Why would the screaming skull get pissed? Because that boss didn't tell and write lies and made up stats like everyone else? I have heard many a boss say how dumb, fake, and kiss ass the CAR meetings are. A complete waste of time! One thing I have noticed over the past year or so is the number of bosses from Lt.'s on up that openly talk how about how screwed up everything is now and how hated the brass are at 35th street. In the past it was rare to hear that type of talk. What a sad joke this department has become. Lets hope for better days.

Joe Patterson is the real fucking police, and he is a stand up guy too.


This shit was building up, and you know what, it needed to be said.


Joe is 100% correct!


Now what?


What do you do now? Joe knows that these people are savages, it is not a race thing, it is a human thing. You're either a human being, or you're a fucking savage.

And the savages need to be dealt with, just like they were back in the day when Joe was kicking ass in 9.


Jody, you are SO over your head. As a military man, you should have some honor and just resign now. 15 people shot, WTF is that?

Leave Jody and take your crew of fucking idiots and trolls with you.

Last I heard, the Dept as a whole (or hole, whichever you prefer) is short an AREA worth of Sworn, minus (who'd of guessed) Exempts. Yep, that’s right FIVE Dist’s worth of Police Officers, Sgts, Lt’s, and close to Captains as well! Also, an AREA worth of Violent Crimes / Property Crimes/ Youth, or HGS / RBT / SVU Detectives Sgts, and Lt’s.

Sad state of affairs we are in…. I have a funny feeling, its going to be a LOOOONNNNNGGGGG hot summer.

One warm day and the city went bezerk,no news conferences when the shit hits the fan, but a copper being proactive (probably the only one) gets stuck in the ass by J-Chump because he used "verbal ghetto" on some trafic beefers. This is where you work, people. Again, If you have a partner sit there and stare out the window like you are on the el. If you are 99 drive like you are visiting detroit. 20 and out and a relo and a finger.

Well, Joey P, it was nice working with you while you wore a gold star...Maybe they need a newly demoted Lt. back in 007.

Being blunt about Masters's bullshit always seems to mean some exempt's career will be launched on the down escalator. And Joey P
is a black exempt in traditionally
reserved 'white' post...it won't be too long before Masters corrects THAT too. That seems to be the track record of WEISel/Masters.

It was actually on Thursday at the CAR meeting...I woke up from my daydreaming when the Deputy started to tell it "like it is". I couldn't get my pen out fast enough to write down everything he said, but basically he stated that the shooting wasn't going to stop until the people that live there change. Shooting each other is just the way of life there and we (the police)can not stop them. IT WAS GREAT!

Its about time. Watch and see, the Superintendent is going to call a meeting now about being a team player, strategies, how you have to dedicate more time away from your families to this job,how you should take the 20% pay cut and just be happy he gave you the right to wear a gold star on the uniform you earned (he didn't) and ask you to write a report that outlines more bullshit! They are going to kill each other no matter what! The only thing that will help is more police being on the street, no rhyme no reason, just the luck of the draw! If we go to the hot areas, they go to the not so hot areas, they kill each other and then we chase the crime and move our resources. This occurs at least 50 times a year and we look like stupid idiots!

Until this economy gets better, until they stop the bullshit SSI check for the drug addicts who keep the drug dealing gang banger in business, until they make gas reasonable, until places like the city and state actually pay and provide their employees with a descent living and benefits, until we get rid of this Federal agent and his buddies who are costing the city over a million dollars a year by being on our pay roll, until we get rid of stupid ass Command members and units like Commander Kevin Ryan, Commander Jim O'Grady, Commander Leo Schmidtz, Deputy Chief Nick Roti, Chief Ernest Brown, Chief Zavala (WTF), Chief Juan Rivera, ALL OF THE FEDS and Asst. Supt. (I housed a felon with guns and drugs - I didn't know though and I am 3rd in Command for the Chicago Police Dept.)Cuello, we will never get anywhere. Now think about why I chose those.

The only thing Joe didn't get quite right was that Englewood has always been shit. My Grandfather, born in 1902, grew up there and lived there through WW2. He was a tough, white neighborhood full of bohunks and hillbillies. After the war, all the whites moved out and it has been all black since the mid 50s. But, at least they had cops pounding beats and a lid was sort of kept on.
Joe is right in saying today's ghetto dweller doesn't have much to lose. They don't have squat, their leaders are windbags and they realize fearless leader (Obama) is inept and pushing their cause back 50 years.

Manpower needs are, and continue to be, the main culpret to this on-going problem, and time after time we as the police will continue to do as asked and carry the load no matter how big the load may get, however there simply aren't enough people to carry the load anymore. I have been waiting for someone (a boss) to finally stand up and tell "the emperor he has no clothes on!" Hats off to you Deputy Patterson.

If given the essential tools,manpower and motivation the false numbers that stain the daily rags actually could be attained. It's not rocket science to simply change peoples choice between doing right/wrong it is just being consistent. Unfortunately that is a word not in J-Feds vocabulary.

I've run into him frequently on details, wakes & funerals and he doesn't forget where he came from. He'll always make it a point to say "hi" and ask how I'm doing, which I know doesn't seem like much, but compared to the exempt blowhards on this job, Joe is a breath of fresh air. Joe is a sharp guy and is a true gentleman. He is one boss who can turn the morale around. If this "revolt" story is true, it doesn't surprise me one bit!

Thats funny. We're short watch commanders everywhere and we assign a captain to an inside unit, which now makes three captains assigned inside. But we continue to pay Lt's to work out of grade to cover the watch commanders positions that these captains should be working. Now we have inside Lt's that are going to be filling in as watch commanders in the district on a regular basis all summer beginning next period. There is a couple of things wrong with this scenario. First, I really don't want an inside do nothing Lt coming to my district and fucking things up out of ignorance. Second, if I am correct, Lt's working out of grade are subject to Shakman, which means a pool of qualified Lt's needs to established and the spots filled from that pool on the basis of seniority. If I am working midnites as a field Lt in 005, if there is a watch commanders spot open on the same watch in 016, I am part of the eligible pool to work the out of grade. However, because they don't want to pay me for moving me out of the area, they will assign a HQ fill in to work the out of grade, in violation af Shakman. This department will never learn. Hey Mikey boy, I will hold you accountable in front of the Shakman monitor because your policy group was informed of this yet did nothing. Enjoy the press!

The truth hurts. Not are we dangerously short police, the no balls, back stabbing brass don't want you to be the police. They don't want proactive. They want warm and fuzzy. They want crime down, but don't want you doing the things involved to lower it. 1st and 3rd watches across the city are way understaffed with cars down and one man cars being utilized. 2nd watch cars are either detailed to bullshit so called dangerous blocks and the other half are detailed to all the schools in the mornings and at dismissal. There are constant RAP's in all the district and people biching why the police take 45 minutes to an hour to show up on 1A jobs. No cars available. There are no cars available to be used and coppers sitting an hour waiting to get a car after roll call. The cars we do have are crap and falling apart. The computers are useless and either broken or out of range all the time. /the radios are useless. They are either all static on both ends and the batteries never last a full watch. The city doesn't give a shit about these issues and the top brass don't have the balls or knowledge to complain. As long as the top brass are in their little bubble world, fuck everything else. This job used to be one of the greatest jobs. You enjoyed coming to work. The bosses cared, there was enough help and everyone stuck together. The bosses covered your ass and stood beside you. Now that is all gone. Sinking ship, hell. We have suck and are sitting at the deepest bottom of the ocean. It will take years to fix this department, if it ever can be fixed. Just answer your calls and watch each others back for safety. Other than that, fuck this department and City Hall. They don't give a shit about you. Why should we. As long as we have City Hall pulling the strings and J-Fed and his band of idiots dancing, nothing will change. Nobody gives a shit about you or your safety. The few bosses who do know what is going on speak out and just get dumped for someone who will play the game.

Along the same lines, it's not just Englewood. I'm a northsider, driving home last week came upon several
m/1's with shirts off tounting and yelling i'll put your mother"@'",.s to sleep, etc. Only when I got under the viaduct did I see who they were confronting, it was the police. There were several squad cars a wagon, 10-12 cops. I'm not going to judge it but I will say, PLEASE be careful. Mutts come in all shapes and sizes, they inhabit the north, south and west sides of this once great city. They are becoming bolder and have absolutely no respect for the police. They know as well as we do, who is running this department and have no problem confronting the police. It's sickening. Way back when, if you pulled a stunt like that, you could bet that the wagon would be filled with arrestees and the area would be saturated with police for the next few weeks. Today, nobody goes to jail, we don't have enough bodies to man beat cars much less saturate an area. Safety issue, you bet. I hope all you merit big shots are enjoying your reign of destruction. You will go down in CPD history as having contributed to the destruction of a once proud department. Sleep well and enjoy your big payday, hope it was worth it. Glad to see that at least one of you has a backbone.

What is the purpose of the CAR meeting? Jfed and Mike Masters only started going when they realized the Mayor was sending people from the hall to watch. Now they have invited the Aldermen! How fucked up and lame is that? Why does this department keep mixing policing with political hacks? What the fuck are they doing, the Aldermen, to combat crime besides bitching about it? Where are the jobs they are responsible for bringing. What are they doing with the Menu Money? When are they going to be held accountable. They always invite all the Exempts to their meetings to take the focus off of them and the fucking Mayor and the Superitendent just keep right on allowing this. Hell, at least 15 Exempts are in the room!

What is even more humiliating is the fact that District Commanders of like 3,4,5,6, and 7 have to sit there and listen at how Brust, the Superintendent and anyone else that wants to join in, brag about how great of a job the Commanders in Area 3 are doing and other places like, 001, 017, 18, 019, 020etc. They don't have any fucking crime! They have all the time in the world to chit chat with the troops, the Aldermen, the business owners or whoever! Why don't you take those same worthless Commanders, especially Commander Lucy Moy, and send them to Command 3,4,5,6, or 7. Start there. Let’s see how well they do. Let’s just do a swap for about 6 months with the Command Staff. Hell, they have no union, so that is legitimate. That also gives the Commanders that work 100 hours a week well deserved fucking break. How much more can you do to them and still pay them the same as you pay Lucy fucking Moy?

While you are at it, switch the Deputy Chiefs of Area 1 and Area 2 with Area 3 and CCG. They can use a breather also. Make the other elite Exempts actually work for a fucking check!

You wanted some new innovative ideas. Lets try this one!

Mauer said it best, he said the more you allow the savages to run rampant in their own communities, they get better and more creative; they then branch off into our neighborhoods. Do you really think that the savages in 003, 004, 006, 011, 015 or 025 are just committing crime in their own communities? Are you a fucking idiot? No, they are coming to areas in 016, 022, 008, 009 and 002, where we live, and preying on OUR community. The more you pass by and do not stop the crime, you turn your head and look the other way that is the day YOU are one step closer from being a victim. If it is not you it may be your wife, your kids or your parents. Think about that as you say Fuck CPD and this fucked up City. I don't like it either, but it is the truth. The last crew that was in 022 breaking in homes was from 003! The crew that is in 016 is from 025.

Just keep it up!!! Jfed and Mike Masters live in downtown Chicago with doormen! Remember that! They don't even trust the savages from staying away. They made sure they were protected along with their family. Funny thing is we don't make $300,000.00 a year!

Joe Patterson was agreat Sergeant in SOS, he was a great boss in the A/1 D Unit, great Commander in 007, and is probably the beat Deputy Chief that Area One has ever had. Why? Because he is a cop's cop, he has the beat interest of his men and women in mind. He is intelligent, well spoken and knows what it takes to get the job done. If J-Fraud and the Screaming Skull take offense to what he said, and he is removed from his office then it will be a great loss. Joe is not afraid to do what's right and his cops respect that, and him.

OT from Chicago Breaking News ...

Crest Hill Police Chief Dwayne Wilkerson said today that "people have a right not to cooperate."

SAY WHAT ???

I guess they have a right to refuse the BAC and field sobriety tests, but then they always turn around and say they were sober. Well, if they were fucking sober, they would blow. So they can all go fuck themselves.

Instead of crying about the DUI, they need to change their fucking behavior. It's as easy as that.

True. People don't have to cooperate with the police. However, the majority forget that they then must deal with the consequences.

That is what our society has forgotten: That each and every person is responsible for their own actions.

This whole job makes me so sad. Really, really sad. I just turned 50 and thought I'd stay a few more years but I just don't know. This job will NEVER return to what it once was.

I saw a video on fox news about a copper in some other city who smacked a guy a few times because he was in the back of the squad and wouldn't quit kicking the window. The video camera looked like it had to be installed in the rear door. Copper got 18 months. Sure he didn't realize camera was there.Yet shitheads get arrested over and over for lots less and walk away.

So easy to get jammed up. So hard to even smile at work anymore.

Please look out for one another out there, and act as if you are always being recorded.

Why does Shorty, and all the other politicians go to and maybe even have floats in the Gay Pride Parade? The Bud Bilikan Parade? The Mexican Independence Parade? The What-Ever Parade?

And NOT the St. Jude Parade?

Because the politicians can depend upon these people to vote, and the politicians will then vote and spend tax dollars in favor of the people who vote and the rest of us be damned to just pay the bills.

What we need to do is not to parade around City Hall. That might not even make it on the 6 o'clock news. What we need to do is to go into our own neighborhoods, just like precienct captains and tell people the truth. We should hand out flyers explaining the truth about what is going on with the department and the city.

Ok...my numbers are a little off..apologies for that.

But the point is still valid.

If every working still PO was a registered voter..it would still be a large enough faction to make the politicians listen.

Lets be honest...

For every 1 PO...you probably have about 25 people that listen and agree with your views on whats wrong with the way this city is being run.

That equation works out to simple math.

Say 9k total CPD.
25 * 9,000 = 225,000 voters

225,000 voters is enough to put someone on a ballot in every election. And if they are all in the same ward, it is enough to most likely control the outcome of an alder-manic election.

Almost a quarter of a million potential friends of the police, and though friends have friends; and etc....

After Ruth left the academy, all of the meetings have stopped and Howard will not meet with academy staff. Ruth always kept open communications with supervisiors and staff. Now it is sad to watch. The only time we see Howard is when he exercises in the hallway early every morning. Me thinks there is change in the air and soon we will emerge from this cloud of a leadership void.

Hey annonymous ass who ridicules police officers for making arrests of top ten offenders.....get off your lazy ass and and lock up some shithead gangbangers.

Only a success story because if we continue to lock up these shitheads every time they dare to loiter, than maybe some innocent little 3 year old won't get shot while his mother is holding him innocently standing on the street.

Don't be a dickhead unless you can do better.

There is noway Joe Patterson is going anywhere. First who would they replace him with, there are only 13 Black Lts and 4 Black Capts. Matbe Phillis Gill? Mark Moore? Evans? Mathews? Washington?Forget it there are only 5 o6 Blacks that are promotable right now so the ones that are in place are safe unless you pull a TRAHANNAS. Second if he were dumped the Rev's would storm 35th St. and he wouild be repromoted,J FED cant go through that again, so Joe will stay, and Joe knows it or he would have never saisd a word. He picked his spot like a pro.

Maybe he is using the scale of counting from the million man march.

I don't think so. I think the million man march was purposely
undercounted. I was out in DC on other business at the time, and I would have definitely estimated the crowd at a million. Easily.

I was living there then and I would say they were lucky if the crowd was even 300,000.

REMEMBER HILLIARD A POLICEMAN'S POLICE

3/21/2010 10:45:00 AM

The fucking cocksucker never heard of an allegation he couldn't stick up some copper's ass. No superintendent in my 26 years was faster to get on TV and blame a policeman. And look at him now...selling gee whiz equipment to the city and starting his own P.I. company. A company that will soon have the contract to process all recruits. Terry Hillard a policeman's police...my hairy fucking ass.



What the fuck is a policeman's police? That doesn't even make sense.

Word at the FOP meeting was that 195 PO's had signed up retirement in 2010, with 109 retiring in April.

Stay away from the doors----don't want to get stampeded.

"I take it you want to be a field grunt forever? No aspirations? So sad..."

Hold on a minute there. Just because a guy WANTS to be a field grunt doesn't mean he doesn't have ambition.

That's one of the biggest problems on this department; everyone looks at pushing a beat car as the bottom of the barrel. Well that's bull.

Patrol is not only the most visible and accessible part of the police department, but it's also the most visible and accessible are of local government.

Everything else should be regarded as a support unit FOR PATROL.

The patrol officer should be the king (or queen) of the department. Patrol is the basic building block of any police department.

Why do you think that there's all this talk of disbanding units, not making any more promotions, putting more people on the street?

...and no, I'm not in patrol anymore.

The "field grunts" should RUN the department.

Don't EVER look down on yourself for being a beat cop.
