Police Board Scandal Breaks

CrimeFile has the complaint up. Breaking News has the story:
  • A Chicago police officer was charged with lying to FBI agents for denying he took cash from another officer in disciplinary trouble after promising he could influence the board weighing the other officer's punishment.

    Victor Brown, 36, a 12-year veteran, was arrested today by FBI agents and Chicago police internal affairs officers on multiple charges of making false statements when he was confronted by federal authorities in February.

    Brown is accused of pocketing a total of $4,500 in 2008 and 2009 from an officer who was facing serious disciplinary trouble. Brown claimed he had influence with the Chicago Police Board. But the officer he offered to help worked undercover with federal authorities, wearing a hidden recorder as he passed the cash and surreptitiously recording their telephone conversations.

This has been whispered around for quite a while now that someone was taking money for favorable verdicts at the Board hearings. This would explain quite a bit of their convoluted decisions where people would be reinstated three and four times. Brown is accused of being the go-between.

The trouble is the feebs seem unable to pull the trigger on who was getting the money. This could be huge because Police Board members aren't elected - they are chosen by one person without any oversight whatsoever. And those chosen, if caught dirty, don't really have a bargaining chip to give up.

What did John Kass call them? Oh yeah..."buffers."

And everyone reading knows what has happened to all the "buffers" lately.

Victor Brown is a real piece of work... He is a straight up criminal punk... Should have been fired at least 3 years ago.... I personally gave him several days on beefs/spars.. If you only knew what this guy has pulled.... And NO he is NOT related to Chief Brown....although Victor will bullshit you into thinking that... Also he has been caught wearing award ribbons for awards he has never gotten!! This guy even had the balls to ask a W/C in a northside district to "borrow" him his credit card so he could pay for his car repair bill!!! Mind you the W/C and Victor know eachother as well as I know Ernie Banks!! This guy could sell a dead man a used car... He is a smooth talker but a criminal who needs to be fired and in jail!

Once again, the media has not looked into the vast disparity of suspension time and termination accorded for disciplinary infractions on the Chicago Police Department.

I have seen officers terminated on the faintest shreds of preponderance of evidence (total BS cases); and I have seen officers who committed multiple felonies with ample evidence receive a slap on the wrist countless times over the years.

Proof positive of the two-tier system of discipline on the CPD.

I doubt that any member of the police board would be involved in this. Every member has a stellar resume and most make more in a day than Victor Brown can steal.

VB is a piece of work and even if not related to EB was protected by him and promoted by him in the early years. Got put on tact in 003 a minute after he graduated and after EB brought him back from 006/007. Took him to narcotics too, if I recall correctly.

There are certainly problems with the Police Board but I attribute them more to politics and simple laziness. A number of attorneys on the Board seem to have their more junior associates review and write their decisions with no oversight whatsoever. These people don't make any money from being on the Board so they have no motivation to do good work other than "civic pride" and we all know how proud we are these days of our civic leaders.

This will certainly be an interesting case to follow. . .

Someone said this is the same guy that approached the reservation desk staff at the O'hare Hilton a few years ago and asked for a "free room" claiming he needed it for an undercover sting.

He than asked for in room "pay-per-view" movies and hand lotion to be delivered to his room.

Finally, a manager suspecting something was not right called police and 016 arrested him. It appeared in the paper than quickly and quietly "went away."

John Kass can you please investigate?

Police board is crooked to the core! Good "no clout" cops get fired for silly shit or an honest mistake..and guys like this step on their dicks again and again and are still employed!!

While I largely share your sentiments that this should be investigated, all too often many of you seem to have the idea that the feds can just jump in anywhere they want to. While I know it seems like that much of the time, please remember that a federal crime has to have been committed, or at least suspected of having been committed. I am no expert on federal crime so I don't know if there is any indication of one being commetted here or not. It kind of sounds like they got Brown for lying to a federal officer, which is always a crime. Remember too, that the federal government has o direct oversight over the states or its subdivisions. It has to do with something about the sovereignty of the states in that inconvenient Constitution.

Seems Victor has been very busy. Here's a story about him from 2008. How the fuck was this asshole still working for CPD in 2010? WTF!

Trib report:

A Chicago police officer who had been relieved of his police powers was arrested in Rosemont for impersonating an officer, authorities said today.

Victor Brown, 35, of the 10000 block of South Wallace Avenue has been in custody since Tuesday on the felony charge. His bail was reduced Thursday to $5,000.

Rosemont detectives arrested Brown after he went to a hotel and asked for a free room to conduct an undercover vice investigation, authorities said. Hotel employees called police after he asked for lotion and on-demand movies, authorities said.

When detectives arrived, Brown told them his wife works at O'Hare International Airport and that he was waiting for her. Police were suspicious and arrested him, according to authorities.

Larry Kugler, an assistant Cook County public defender, said Brown was relieved of his police powers in March pending an internal investigation.

Brown has been a police office since 1998 and serves in the Near North District, where he fields information calls, Kugler said.

Assistant State's Atty. Matt Fakhoury told Circuit Judge Kay Hanlon that since Brown had been stripped of his police powers, he no longer could represent himself as an officer and argued that the original $50,000 bail should stand.

Just think somebody should put it out there because it sure isn't right that a guy hits mandatory retirement with an open CR# he has no control over then gets listed as retired "while under investigation" meaning no retirement star or id or the ability to qualify to carry a firearm as a retired po.

Isn't this the same guy that got caught taking his car to a city operated gas station, filling up his car and saying his personal car was a covert vehicle? Isn't this the same guy that was ordering pizza and then refusing to pay the bill when it was delivered? I believe it is. About 2 years ago I was speaking with the manager of Broken Arrow, a golf course in Lockport. Apparently this is the same guy who ran a tournament there and collected all the fees and then refused to pay the golf course. I know IAD was contacted by the golf course. This guy has someone who has been covering his tracks for many years. Who is that person?

Victor Brown is a real piece of work... He is a straight up criminal punk... Should have been fired at least 3 years ago.... I personally gave him several days on beefs/spars.. If you only knew what this guy has pulled.... And NO he is NOT related to Chief Brown....although Victor will bullshit you into thinking that... Also he has been caught wearing award ribbons for awards he has never gotten!! This guy even had the balls to ask a W/C in a northside district to "borrow" him his credit card so he could pay for his car repair bill!!! Mind you the W/C and Victor know eachother as well as I know Ernie Banks!! This guy could sell a dead man a used car... He is a smooth talker but a criminal who needs to be fired and in jail!

At least 21 weapons --- including MP5 and AR-15 assault rifles --- were stolen from a shooting range belonging to south suburban Harvey police, officials say.

The weapons, ranging from handguns to high-powered rifles, were reported stolen from a trailer on the property of the shooting range at 153rd Street and Campbell Avenue around 9 a.m. Monday, according to Harvey police and the Bureau of Alcohol Tobacco Firearms and Explosives.

Special Agent Tom Ahern, an ATF spokesman, said his agency was working with the Illinois State Police to determine exactly how the weapons were removed and to trace their histories.

Nothing to see here...

Daley Inc. is just hanging on until their blanket pardon by that smooth talking, hollow fellow they expended a lot of muscle and capitol to send to D.C.

The middle class will be reduced to "plantin' taters" along the banks of the Sanitary & Ship Canal while the wealthy and the media say "tsk, for shame." Daley Inc. will laugh and say "NO PENSION FOR YOU" and wipe their asses with our hard earned loot.

Shit.

Tax payers & city employees (especially the Police) are victims of massive theft and civil rights violations of a scale just short of mass imprisonments and transport to labor camps.

No one in a position to give a shit, gives a shit. At least the Police came out when citizens were treated thus.

Who would have thought the phrase "Chicago Police Officer" would become a synonym for "second class citizenship."

Everyone involved in this Police board fiasco should be stripped naked, bricked into a room with a gallon of water, a can of pork n' beans and left to each other's devices and forgotten about.

The original ordinance governing the police board states that its members are to serve without compensation. However, the city pays an annual $25,000 stipend to Board President Demetrius Carney, who is a partner in a law firm. Other members of the board receive $15,000 annual stipends.

The Police Board members receive $15,000 a year and the PB President receives $25,000 a year in stipends.

SCC sent you an email regarding Sgt's contract, p57. It's a letter telling how the Department will carry those who resign/retire with open CR's. They will forever be carried "while under investigation" This latest Police Board shit kind of ties into the whole system of unfair discipline the CPD is allowed to get away with. Just think somebody should put it out there because it sure isn't right that a guy hits mandatory retirement with an open CR# he has no control over then gets listed as retired "while under investigation" meaning no retirement star or id or the ability to qualify to carry a firearm as a retired po.

5/11/2010 01:03:00 PM
==
Does the contract STATE 'no retirement star, no ability to carry a gun'?

Because in the 80's and 90's, when someone retired with an open CR#, the CR# closing report stated 'suspended (meaning the investigation, not the accused), pending the return, or any attempt to return to the employ of the Chicago Police Department...'

People still got their retirement stuff, as usual, though.

What you're saying isn't logical. Even a sustained CR# wouldn't keep someone from getting their retirement star, i.d, or restrict their right to carry.

The Police Board consists of nine members who are directly appointed by Mayor Richard M. Daley.

Board members receive a stipend of $15,000 annually and $25,000 for serving as Police Board President.

The Police Board's Role

The Police Board decides disciplinary matters involving allegations of serious misconduct made against members of the Chicago Police Department. The Board has the responsibility to:

* Decide cases when the Superintendent of Police files charges to discharge or suspend a police officer for more than thirty days;
* Review, upon the request of a police officer, a suspension of six through thirty days; and
* Decide matters in which the Chief Administrator of the Independent Police Review Authority and the Superintendent of Police do not concur regarding discipline of a police officer.

The Police Board virtually controls the entire Chicago Police Department by proxy and are the Mayor's hand puppets. Now that we know they are 100% corrupt and controlled by bribes and political influence we must CHANGE the system.

Thanks for the above post. Brown is the pos not the police board. They didn't make any money, this IAD officer did. If it were not for the police board, officers would be terminated left and right for BS. They at least give a po a chance to state their case and then judge it based on the law not what some boss wants to call it. How this Brown guy slipped through the cracks is beyond me but I agree we need the police board.

Logic has nothing to do with it. Go to the Sgt's Association site and read the contract proposal, page 57. There is a letter there telling the labor attorney the CPD policy of resigned/retired "WHILE UNDER INVESTIGATION." I personally know some who have already had this happen to them when they went to Personnel to retire.No retirement ID no retirement star and no letter letting the retired copper qualify to carry a gun. Nobody cares least of all the FOP or the PBPA. Question is how and why do we let this happen? Just hope IAD has no open CR#s hanging around when you go to retire. For those like you who don't believe it then go to the web site and read the letter on p57 it is all right there in black and white. Just one more fine example of CPD,FOP and PBPA letting no clout coppers get treated like shit. Read the letter then tell me it isn't true.As stated in the letter this has been the "policy" for some time, unless of course you have clout or a phone call then you could be a convicted felon and the department would still give you your retirement stuff. Just once I would like to see police officers find somebody maybe a good labor attorney who would just one time stick up for us and stop the department and the city from screwing us over.

Could someone please list who is on the police board, with any ties to city politicians!!!!!!

Please keep up, read the entire thread. All nine Police Board members are appointed by Mayor Richard M. Daley.

The Mayor owns all of them, lock, stock and barrel.

I agree big time! Some field Lts seldom get out of the car. Some dont ever leave the station. And they never work a FULL tour. The city is lucky when a Lt works 6 hours.

Hey...pass a test, then talk to me!This f'd up dept created the spot so I'm going to fill it to the best of my ability. STFU and mind your business.

AMEN to Passing a test...

Especially when you have no Affirmative Action or Ethnic Clout going for you.

Being a Lieutenant means being in place of the WC. It's when you spend a lot of time and effort teaching and protecting blueshirts. Fortunately I work with a good crew and we watch out for each other.

Stay safe, pass a test. Not that there is anything with being a Patrolman for Life.

Logic has nothing to do with it. Go to the Sgt's Association site and read the contract proposal, page 57. There is a letter there telling the labor attorney the CPD policy of resigned/retired "WHILE UNDER INVESTIGATION." I personally know some who have already had this happen to them when they went to Personnel to retire.No retirement ID no retirement star and no letter letting the retired copper qualify to carry a gun.

The current department practice is to mark an individual retired under investigation. This has been in effect for the last several years. This letter is a promise to evaluate each on a case by case basis. This eliminates the past practice. This letter was won by PBPA. rather than go off and cry foul do your homrwork. This is a benefit won by the PBPA. Do your homework. This was a step forward to eliminate a problem for the retiree. It corrects an existing problem.

There is much more that is going to happen with this story.

Unless you have been there you do not know the workings of the board. What an officer has to go thru is I would think only comparable to 26th st.
The corp counsels are full throttle against the officer and they work hard to try and fire the officer. The hearing officer is like the ref. The board gets a synopsis from the hearing officer and then rules. Lots of good folks on the board. Read their bios, its all public info..
The problem does not lie there. It is with the investigations conducted. Thats where eyes should look. An earlier post said that if the folks were clouted, the case would have never gotten so far as the board. A very good point and goes back to what I say about the investigation and the conduct of the investigators that are in many cases given a direction to go in as far as screwing a copper or not.
Thats where the clouted get some play and are looked out for.
In fact the boards records should be looked into as far as some of the cases that were sent there that were so badly investigated or as I like to put it, so badly un-investigated, that the investigators should be dumped to a foot patrol on a non-residential street somewhere.
Thats the key boys and girls! If Loevy can get 16 mil for the mut gang bangers etc.. then it is time to send a message to these folks from iad and ipra too!
Where is our beloved fop on this topic. Hear stories from people at call back of their 2,3,4 year stints there with no resolution.
Stories where at board hearings , the iad that testify look like total fools and have the deer in headlight look. Why-because they know they have done an officer or three wrong, thats why! Need for one of them to come forward and come clean on the witch-hunts they are assigned.
Enough said for now -be safe ..

Just show me where anything was won by the PBPA with this bullshit letter. The decision is up to the Supt.(meaning clout and phone call get your retirement star and id.)No clout no call too bad. Oh but wait if Unit 156 or the Sgt don't agree with the Supt then a grievance can be filed but no arbitration. So this great "victory" you say PBPA has won means the grievance means nothing if the Supt, IAD and Personnel choose to ignore it and you limp dicks from PBPA will never have the balls to help out some Sgt getting screwed over like this by actually filing a lawsuit. Do me a favor and do your homework and at least tell the truth that the PBPA actually achieved nothing with this letter and while you are at it admit that the PBPA has always allowed the City to openly violate the contract. Here is some homework for you, Section 18.7 of the current contract,tell me about all the lawsuits and grievances the PBPA has filed for the disabled Sgt's under this section of the contract which you the PBPA has allowed the City to violate since the contract was in existence? Maybe you ought to just shut up about the great things the PBPA has never done before the Sgt's wake up and think about replacing the PBPA Unit 156 for failure to protect their interests and enforce their contract. Your homework should be actually taking the City to court for these open contract violations not telling the Sgt's what a great offer they just got.

This scandal will go away just as the numerous others have. Clout rules in Chicago. CPD runs on clout.Without clout you are not going to get promoted. Without clout you most likely will work a beat car for 30 years.
Chicago does not allow veterans preference. Think of it extra points on a promotional exam for being a veteran. In Chicago! Clout rules and thats why our leadership could not work at Wal Mart in loss prevention. IAD, FOP, and the FBI are as corupt as this city. As Forest Gump mother would Say "stupid is as stupid does".
