I'll Stay for a Pay Cut

  • Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis today said he hopes to stay on as the city's top cop when his contract expires next year, and did not close the door on taking a pay cut to make it happen.

    "Those are all things the mayor and I should probably sit down and talk (about)," Weis said when asked if he would agree to a new contract that's less than his current salary of more than $300,000 per year, tops on the city payroll. "Like I said, I love this job, and I'm sure we can work things out if we come to that point."

    "I'm open to anything," Weis said when asked again if he would take less to stay. "Like I said, it's a great job."
We're not sure which way the messages are flowing - from Chicago to DC or from DC to Chicago, but we're pretty sure Shortshanks doesn't have to fear a Federal Consent Decree takeover until after 2012. So he's got nothing to lose cutting J-Fled loose. He's got to decide how much more he wants to smack the Department around because at some point, it's a question of diminishing returns. The lack of proactive policing isn't really a matter of choice at this point - it's an impossibility just based on manpower constraints.

"I'm open to anything," Weis said. What do you think Shortshanks will make him do?

While it might be a great job, it is clear J-FLED has not done a great job.

Above Par Compensation - Sub Par Performance = Less Than Zero Gain For Everyone, But J-FLED.

All things considered, or ignored, it makes no difference, mare maniac shortshanks will keep him just to further insult the rank in file. He does as he pleases, the little lunatic.

Chicago was never in line to be under consent decree. Why because of SOS nonsense in which cases have been dropped and no one has even done more than six months? Every department that has been placed under a decree has had officers indicted federally for civil rights violations. I do not recall any CPD members being convicted of that in at least the last ten years.

Maybe he'll stay for a percentage of what he cuts from the Department manpower budget.

With a bonus for every cop funeral that Shortshanks can attend.

His pay should have already been cut 50% because he doesn't run OEC like he is paid to do.

Lower his pay to under $150k. You take that job for the power not the pay. Some dope will do it for even less.

LOCAL MEDIA COVER-UPS

While most of my active and retired CPD colleagues probably suspected this tragic truth, I want to take this opportunity to incontrovertibly confirm local media cover-ups.

All of us know that Jody P. Weis has no plausible explanation for failing to come to the aid of the officers responding to the April 2 shooting of Reginald Myers at 6948 S. Paulina St.
While those gathered with J-Fled at 66th and Marshfield heard the gunfire, he denied it. All can hear the screaming sirens as Channel 2 reporter Kristyn Hartman was interviewing the coward. Then his infamous interruption--"GOTTA RUN"--the other way--as officers proceeded into harm's way less than 45 seconds away to the south. You've probably heard his pathetic "enough police there" (the murderer escaped, you damn fool) and "distraction" excuses for not responding to back up officers with an escaped gunman in flight on foot.

I gave it my best shot with our corrupted media. Fortunately, as an ad hoc spokesman, your cowardice charge (with no follow-up) got into the Sun-Times (4/6) and the New York Times (4/18) and the "Big John (Howell) and Amy" WIND 560 AM radio show. If you listen to the audios (YouTube search "Weis" and "coward") of the latter as well as J-Fled's interview two weeks later, it becomes obvious that Mr. Howell and J-Fled unsuccessfully tried to discredit my documented charge of cowardice against your "leader".

I will now name the editorial page editors of both the Tribune and the Sun-Times who also ignored coverage of J-Fled's cowardice. Respectively, Bruce Dold ("Don't call us, we'll call you") and Thomas McNamee ("you have a vendetta against Weis...you're a guy who's gone off the deep end." (Remember the anonymous "lunatic" eMail).

I gave it my all. Only a fool would believe that the Office of the Daley-appointed Inspector General Joseph Ferguson will sustain the cowardice complaint. They now refuse to even communicate with me.

This is not the first time the Tribune has concealed the damning facts of a CPD scandal from their readers (include "Breaking News" and WGN-TV viewers). After then Channel 5 investigative reporter Peter Karl did a four night piece on "ExamScam" and abandoned me to take a job (C.A.P.S.) with Daley, the late James Gallagher, then Tribune editor, blew me off. I had schlepped four boxes of incontrovertible evidence to Tribune Tower that the "oral board", weighted at eighty percent after the fact, was rigged ("notify the watch commander", etc.).

Psychometricians calculated that there was less than one chance in 13,800,000,000,000 (13.8 TRILLION that "ExamScam" was legit. The Tribune held the boxes of evidence for nearly a month. They did nothing to expose the truth.

Both cover-ups occurred on Daley's watch. Any suggestions? What more can I do without your help?

Moral is gone under this guy. Hiring is damn near non-existent. People are leaving the department for whatever reason. Murders and shootings are up. After the department is labeled "ineffective" and the ranks are at a uselessly low point Shortshanks will decide a "Private Security" firm will be the city's answer to the crime and budget issues. (and will give his buddies some very lucrative contracts)

Just watch. Can you think of any other reason things are going the way they are?

J-Fed, J-Pud, J-Liar, J-Fled is unemployable outside of Chicago that's is why he will take a pay cut. The few Feds that I know away from the job all say NO COMMENT when they are asked about J-Cabana Boy - Mayor Chuckie's little rat partner!

The city does hire retired POs back for certain departments, these are part time positions, about $20 an hours and no benifits.
Since J fed is also retired, and the amount of work he gets done is certinly part time, we should save a boatload of money and pay him about forty grand a year, even at thats, he is overpaid.

J-Fledtakes over at Headquarters and decides to get rid of all the slackers.

On a tour of the facilities, J-Fled notices a guy leaning on a wall. He can't believe this guy would just stand around on the job.

J-Fled walks up to the guy leaning against the wall and asks, "What are you doing here?"

"I'm just waiting to get paid," responds the man.

Furious, J-Fled asks "How much money do you make a week?"

A little surprised, the young fellow replies, "I make about $300 a week. Why?"

J-Fled quickly gets out his checkbook, hands the guy a check made out to cash for $1,200 and says, "Here's four weeks' pay, now get out and don't come back."

The man puts the check in his pocket and promptly walks out.

Feeling pretty good about himself, J-Fled looks around the room and asks, "Does anyone want to tell me what just happened here?"

From across the room comes a Coppers voice, "Yeah, you just tipped the pizza delivery guy $1,200."

J-Fled picked a new primary care doctor. After two visits and exhaustive Lab tests, he said J-Fled was doing 'fairly well' for his age. (he recently turned 51.)
A little concerned about that comment, J-Fled couldn't resist asking him, 'Do you think I'll live to be 80?'

He asked, 'Do you smoke tobacco, or drink beer or wine?'

'Oh no,' he replied.. 'I'm not doing drugs, either!'

Then he asked, 'Do you eat rib-eye steaks and barbecued ribs?

'he said, 'Not much.. my former doctor said that all red meat is very unhealthy!'

'Do you spend a lot of time in the sun, like playing golf, sailing, hiking, or bicycling?'

'No, I don't,' he said.

He asked, 'Do you gamble, drive fast cars, or have a lot of sex?'

'No,' J-Fled said.

The Doctor looked at J-Fled and said,... 'Then, why do you even give a shit?

A young Northside woman, old Southside woman, J-Fled, and a Beat Copper are riding a train...

The train goes through a tunnel and it becomes pitch black in the car, a loud SMACK is heard... the train emerges from the tunnel and J-Fled is rubbing his cheek.

The Northsiside girl thinks "I bet he tried to grope me and accidentally got the old woman and she slapped him..."

TheSouthside woman thinks "He must have groped the Northside girl and she slapped him..."

J-Fled thinks "The Beat Copper must have groped the Northside girl and she accidentally slapped me..."

And the Beat Copper thinks "I can't wait for another tunnel so I can smack that J-Fled guy again."

J-Fled walks into the bar and slams 20 dollars onto the table and says "Give me four shots of vodka"

As soon as the bartender pours the shots J-Fled slams them down. So the bartender says, "What's the celebration?"

"My first B.J."

So the bartender hears this and says "Oh, Congratulations! Here have another shot on me."

The guy says, "Nah, that's okay. If the first four don't get the taste of Shortshanks out my mouth I don't think a fifth one would help."

J-Fled is awakened at three o'clock in the morning by a loud pounding on the door. J-Fled gets up and goes to the door where a drunken Shortshanks, standing in the pouring rain, is asking for a push.

"Not a chance," says J-Fled, "it is three o'clock in the morning!"

He slams the door and returns to his bedroom.

"Well, I sure have a short memory," says J-Fled as he checks himself out in the mirror.

"I can remember about three months ago when I was a broken down Federal Agent and Shortshanks hired me?" "I think I should help him, and not have to worry about getting fired!"

J-Fled gets dressed in his tightest mesh tank top, and goes out into the pouring rain.

He calls out into the dark, "Hello, Your Honor are you still there?"

"Yes," comes back the answer.

"Do you still need a push?" calls out J-Fled.

"Yes, please!" comes the reply from the dark.

"Where are you?" asks J-Fled.

"Over here on the swing!" replies Shortshanks.

Those who attended the memorial in Washington and stayed for the "salute" to the families as they walked out know that LA Police commended CPD by saying "CPD You are a class act" and then shook the Superintendents hand. Well, we as a group are a class act but it has nothing to do with J-Fed and he should not accept that he is part of the "class act".
I was embarassed to say he was my boss when he sat in full uniform, with his P.O and Sgt, on the Metro train as it filled up with citizens who had to stand. If I couldve got over the shock faster I wouldve taken a picture but I was trying to hide that I was also from Chicago as the other municipalities stood with me. If that happened in Chicago it would make the front page of the scum times. No J-Fed, you are not part of our class act and never will be, cut in pay or not.

We have got to organize a demonstration in front of the Tribune Tower carrying signs such as "Tribune Cover-Up - Weis is a Coward". We could also get the e-mail addresses and phone numbers of the editors and bombard them with complaints about the cover-up. I know for a fact that there was no DISREGARD or even a SLOWDOWN given on that murder. The media and the public have no idea about that concept. We should have flooded the area with CPD to catch the killer. J-Fled is a coward who doesn't give a rat's ass about police in harms way searching for a murderer. You did a great job.

What we really need to do is march door to door in our neighborhoods register every anti-Shortshanks voter possible. Then get behind one candidate and ram it up their asses. FOP won't do it, they get a cozy retirement package from the Irish Prick while we get a Cozzi job from City Hall.

I sure as hell hope the Mayor retains Superintendent Weis and the City Council approves another contract.
The Mayor's selection of Weis was vitally needed to break up the good 'ol boys club that ran the department, restricted innovation, and kept the CPD immersed in nepotism, inertia, and maintaining the failed status quo.
