The Sky is Falling!!!

The wheels of justice move slowly if the obstruction is a handpicked member of the J-Fed staff evidently:
  • An investigation into a Chicago police district commander has been launched after allegations she made phone threats against a former boyfriend, who is also an officer, according to court records.

    A Cook County judge filed an emergency order of protection March 12 against Penelope Trahanas, the commander of the Harrison District, according to the court documents.

  • The filing also said that while Trahanas does not have the specifics of the allegations against her, any claims that she engaged in "unlawful or violent behavior ... are completely untrue.''

    Trahanas "enjoys an excellent reputation within the law enforcement community," the filing said.

It would seem that the Tribune has a copy of the case report, seeing as how they quote from it extensively:
  • The details of the alleged threats are outlined in a March 11 Chicago police report, according to the court record. In that report, Jackson stated he was concerned Trahanas would do "everything within her power to try and have him fired from his job."

    In another alleged voice message, Trahanas allegedly made a veiled physical threat against him, the court documents said. The report also mentioned that Trahanas made 15 other phone calls of "a similar nature."

Fifteen other calls? Voice messages? Just based on this alone, this looks bad. We can't imagine how Penny's lawyer is going to explain away this goofiness. Another black eye for the Department, brought to you by "meri-clout-orious" promotions and J-Fed.

So Trahanas "enjoys an excellent reputation within the law enforcement community"?

Let's put to rest this blatant lie. Formulate a survey to be completed by the coppers in 011, collect and tally the responses, and post the results.

The ONLY reputation she's garnered is that of a useless political hack that has been (merit) promoted wwwaaaaaaaaaaayyy beyond her capabilities. It's painfully obvious that she shouldn't be in charge of the the janitorial crew in 011, let alone a contingent of police officers in the busiest, most fucked-up district in the city.

Henny Penny is by no means a leader, and shouldn't have ever been granted multiple bites of the merit apple. It's utterly disgusting to see (yet again) a person that rises through the ranks because of their sex, race and political backing. I just wonder what Henny Penny did in the past and what promises she made to get where she got.

While I'm sure it's wishful thinking, I hope Penny gets demoted back to, AT MINIMUM, Lieutenant. And even that would be too good for her.

P.S. - It's nice to see that NorthSide DIDN'T go to bat for this broad.

Aside from whatever domestic she was involved in throwing her exempt clout around, the real question is, why is or was she a commander of a district like 011? Or a commander at all for that matter. Why would J-fed or Dugan put her in such a position? Was it their way of killing morale there and slowing down the troops? We all know how miserable the P.O.'s have been in 011 and they have been crying out for her to leave. I just don't get how these big shots think at 35th street. This job is lost and they may have killed it forever.

sorry...

the last few years have ruined our charitable spirit especially when it comes to the disparity in discipline.

maybe if a few gold stars were hurt real bad like blue-shirts then they would say "hmmm, we have to fix this unfair, biased-ass two tier discipline structure because we gold star are starting to really get our shit kicked in like we're blue-shirts and it don't feel good."

Just make sure it is not Jim Jones being promoted and made Commander of 011. Prime example of someone being promoted way way beyond their abilities. He's a racist, scared little house mouse with zero personality and zero ability as a leader. Whoever has been sponsoring his rise on this job seriously needs their ass kicked. Hard. I think that those meritoriously promoted, besides being identified as such, should also have who put them in for it. That way when you get a Jim Jones, we know who to blame for such an incredibly stupid series of undeserved promotions.

Again...There ain't one legit capt or excempt on this whole dept!
I will tell you why,
-if any of you asshats ever served in the military you would know that;
1. no officer eats or sleeps until his soldiers do.
2. Officers make their camps last.
3. Officers get paid after their troops do.
4. Officers drive what their troops drive.
5. Officers have done and have demonstrated proficiency at any task that they expect their soldiers to do.
6. Officers never fraternize with the troops, much less try to fuck every female soldier in their command.
7. Military officers always credit their troops and never hold news conferences to pat themselves on the back.

8. A military officer never tells a troop off in public, he will defer to the soldier's chain of command.

9. The military promotes people "who have been there and done that." CPD promotes clout heavy trash who "have never been there and never done shit.

10. So shut up skipper.


The CPD is ass backwards. Exempts expect every little perk and never take the blame for anything. Always stocking their harems/front offices with the chosen women.Micro managing, back biting and self lauding is the order of the day in the CPD.Troops mean absolutely nothing to the bosses who always take care of themselves first. From the top down to sgt.

11th District Commander Penelope Trahanas

Posted: Tuesday, 16 March 2010 6:50PM

Order of protection against female officer


Steve Miller Reporting
CHICAGO (WBBM) -- A Chicago Police commander is accused of making telephone threats against another police officer , a man she used to date.

Newsradio 780 has learned the Independent Police Review Authority is investigating allegations that 11th District Commander Penelope Trahanas made telephone threats.

IPRA spokesman Curtis Tarver would not confirm the name but he says IPRA is investigating allegations of a domestic violence against a commander.

A source tells Newsradio 780 that Commander Trahanas is accused by another officer, a man she used to date, of making telephone threats.

The source says there is an order of protection against Commander Trahanas.

A police spokesman says Commander Trahanas is still on active duty which means she can still carry a gun.

Newsradio 780 has tried without success to reach the commander.

A district commander named in an emergency order of protection by an ex-boyfriend, also an officer, was arrested and charged with telephone harassment late last night after turning herself in to police, officials said.

Penelope Trahanas, the Harrison District commander, was released on her own recognizance on the misdemeanor charge, according to her attorney Tom Needham. She has been relieved of her police powers pending further internal review, department officials said.

--We shall see how it turns out. They are pulling phone records to show text messages that supposedly went back and forth between the two. Now he would be a total idiot if he was texting smack to her and then decided to file this lawsuit. Better make sure you are 100% innocent before you do this shit or it will backfire.

Please Weis did not pick her and any of the four Latinos promoted last week. These are decisions made by city hall. Find one of the other thousands reasons to rip Weis.

It was Weis' decision to dump Lopez. So rip him if you disagree with that dump.

Needham is good for us because of his connections, he wins because of connections. Every notice the judges assigned to his cases. So, although it's a scam, if I get into trouble, I'll hire Needham as well because of his connections.

Needham was Terry Hillard's legal counsel and is a DemocRatic Machine insider. Needham picks and chooses who he represents and the powers to be decide who wins and loses.

Needham is art and parcel of the two-tier system of discipline and a political hack. Politics should have nothing to do with discipline.

Watch this goof Trahanas walk away from this whole episode with minimal damage while an UNCLOUTED PO would be launched.

Fuck Needham and all these corrupt political tools.

If you recall, that slime-ball sexual harasser Ricky Guerrero did not go to call back. They did not send him there, as any of us would have been swiftly sent. They sent him to records as a civilian, however, the very few times he even showed his face, he was treated like a returning, victorious emperor.

The rules don't apply,

I love her lawyer as being quoted "It's too bad that she didn't save all those harassing text's and phone messages that he left her."

So she thinks that she's going to convince a judge that the boyfriend made just as many harassing calls to her, but ooopppsss......I erased them your honor.

re taking city hall promotion orders: then the numbnuts at city hall should say "no" to the political, reverand demands until that "suggested" promotee is FULLY vetted. Any questionhable brouhahas should be red flags...if they do something stupid as a po, det or sgt,they surely will do it as an exempt because with stupidity there is almost always arrogance and that will nail you. If Weis didn't put her in this position and took city hall orders then shame on city hall once again...they can't seem to get anything right. pathetic.

I know for a fact that she made sergeant legit. We were in the very last sergeant's class together in 1997 before all the mertitorius bullshit started. I only got to know her over those 3 weeks, but she seemed nice enough. We didn't keep in touch.



She also made lt legit...she was in a class with a good friend of mine.

The rest, as they say, is history. We all make bad choices and unfortunately, this one came back to bit her in the ass.

Just make sure it is not Jim Jones being promoted and made Commander of 011. Prime example of someone being promoted way way beyond their abilities. He's a racist, scared little house mouse with zero personality and zero ability as a leader. [...]
Why is it when you cannot find anything legitimate to say about an Exempt of color, the first thing that come to mind is he is a racist. Who is he racist against in a department where he is the ultimate minority?

I do not know Jim Jones, so I cannot say anything about him, good or bad. But for the commentator who thinks that a minority exempt cannot be a racist because they are the "ultimate minority", you are sadly mistaken. Any person in power over someone else can be racist and has been. I have seen it time and time again in CPD for all races. Now, please do not debate the definition of "power". A watch commander, a district commander can be racist, it does not matter if they are black, white or brown.

When you say you were in the sergeant's class together in 1997 before all of the merit promotions, I beg your pardon. Merit promotions started in 1995 for sergeant and lieutenant when those lists were held up for lack of minority numbers. I can vouch for that, because my promotion was held up for two years due to the 10 percent merit. There were only three minorities on the lieutenant's list in the first 120 names. Sergeants list, also very few.

Why does being of a race that is the "ulimate minority" mean that he can't be racist against others? He treats people of other races like crap. I know from experience. Being a "person of color" does not make you exempt from being called a racist when you treat others poorly based on their race. Racist is racist.

The individuals promoted from the 1993 Sergeant' test were in rank order, merit did not apply. The test was three parts over a period of several weeks. Arthur Anderson mailed the grades for the individual components to the candidates first, then a day later to the City. Daley went wild = "they will never run another test."

This was before Arthur Anderson had a scandal on a national scale which resulted in their dissolution.

Sergeant promotees from that 93 test were all in rank order including the years 96 & 97 off of the 93' list.

The Sergeant's test following the 93' one was the first time merit was used.

Penny had to have done pretty well on the test because Charlie Roberts was her Commander of Area 5 and he gave the classes at the Academy. A very high proportion of his class made it off that list, Kirby & Cuello, Michelle Obama's cousin, etc. included. Charlie's success did not go unnoticed. He was shortly thereafter promoted to ADS of Training. However, he was ordered not to give any more promotional classes, and from that time forward he did not have any more classes, although other associates of his did have promotional classes later.

What process was used for the Lts. promotions is another story - maybe some can fill in the blanks...
