Ed Burke Reads the Blog

Ed is stealing exact quotes from our comment sections...unless ...unless Ed Burke is the guy leaving the comments! Good God! We're famous!!!
  • The City Council’s most powerful alderman urged Mayor Daley on Wednesday to ask off-duty police officers to work their days off to combat gang violence akin to “urban terrorism.”

    Ald. Edward M. Burke (14th), chairman of the City Council’s Finance Committee, said Daley’s plan to ease a severe manpower shortage by hiring 100 more officers will take too long and fall far short.

    If 100 recruits enter the police academy on Sept. 1, it’ll be 24 weeks before they complete their training and hit the streets, he said.

    “If you divide that 100 by 25 districts, you have maybe four officers-per-district. Divide that by three shifts and what have you got?” Burke said.

We'll tell you what you've got Ed - you've got Dick! Dick Daley that is.

And how's that bodyguard detail working out for you Ed? Is it six coppers at the moment or more? Each "earning" sergeant pay for "alleged" threats received how many years ago? Vague undefined threats that no one has ever actually substantiated?

We wonder what would happen if everyone actually said, "No" to this overtime offer. Would the shootings skyrocket? Would the streets run red with blood? Would Shortshanks actually find a fiddle to play?

OT:
SCC, I have been thinking about the deaths of my fellow officers a lot lately. As I think about each incident I wonder what could have been done, who is at fault, and why does this happen? As I thought about the questions I realized it's easy to point fingers at the killers, the Mayor, J Fled, but what about each one of us? In the last election how many of us voted? If we did vote, when we went into the booth how much did we know about the judges we voted for? I point the finger at myself for this too.....I didn't know much about the judges. Even your idea of voting not to retain every one really isn't a good one. I'm pretty certain that every one of the POS offenders has an extensive background. We need to start holding these judges accountable for their actions. We need to put it to our FOP to do the homework on these judges and find out which are good and which are as bad as the criminals we lock up. Lets face it shitheads will be shitheads, and we can't count on Dick or J Fled. We can however start spreading the word to our family and friends about these judges that keep letting these assholes out on the street again and again and get them the FU@& OUT!!! It isn't much but we gotta start somewhere. Oh, and lets not forget about the other politicians like Quinn that let a bunch of these assholes out only to later admit that it was a mistake......

Perhaps Ed Burke can comment on this blog why exactly he needs all this protection for himself. But then again, Bob Cooley pretty much explained that, eh Ed? Since your a former Chicago cop, don't you know how to protect your own ass?

How about we dump all you useless Aldermen and utilize the combination of your salaries to hire more officers?

You know what kills me about Burke??? He's a former P.O. (so they say). How long was he on the job? Is he retired from the dept? If so, then that means he can carry his weapon, as long as he qualifies yearly. Oh wait, Ol Eddie Boy, you are an alderman, and that means you can carry a gun legally anyways. Why do YOU need a bodyguard, regardless of some long-ago unsubstantiated threats?! You can carry on 2 counts. Let's get back to those threats too...when was the last time you received one of these unsubstantiated threats anyways? Within the last month? Two month? Six months? Years??!! When, you thief? Was anything ever done about these threats? Were there any RD #'s generated? Any follow ups done? Any suspects ever ID'd or brought in? Or are the bodyguards some sort ego stroke to compensate for your lack of "masculine fortitude"??!! I hope he reads this post too. What an asshole.

And remember SCC, according to Supt. Geico, no one reads this insignificant blog anyways.

Eddie Burke is systematic of what's wrong in Chicago. An alderman since 1969 and a former police officer (supposedly) should have learned something about crime by now, especially considering that his 14th Ward was once in Englewood during the White Flight.

The city can't hire any cops, it is broke. The only way Da Mayor hired cops is with federal money. There is no more federal money so he will not hire any. Face it we are fucked we will not get any help nor will we get hire-back the city is broke. 20 and out while you can because it is going to get worse.

I heard from a reliable source that Burke reads this blog every day. Ed, you talk too much sometimes. You looked foolish in the paper with your two stars. I hard that from everybody Ed.

Ed, you went directly to the "inside spot' from the Academy so you could get your law degree on the company's dime. I think it was the Inspector General, or whatever it was called then. In other words, you were never the Police. Please stop saying you were. Again, you look foolish.

If the Department took back the 'status' bodyguards from you, the evil troll on the fifth floor and anybody else that doesn't need one, you could put most of those 100 new Police Officers on the street TOMORROW. Don't pretend you care about the Police Officers safety until you do. You look REALLY foolish.

Fast Eddie is such a dick!! Who the hell does he think he is?!! Why doesn't he cough up some dough and give it towards more cops on the street? Why doesn't work with the gangs? From my understanding of a Chicago police officer, he is on duty 24/7, 365 now. Why should a police officer give up his off day to do something that should be the parents job in the first place? A day off means to recuperate...to decompress from the stress of the job. Tell fast Eddie to go F--- himself!! It'll probably make him feel better!

Ask Off duty officers to work the parties. At the Sheffield Garden Walk last week, there were at least 4 cars down for the drunks in this Lincoln Park neighborhood. No one ever questions the man power given to all of this and the $$$ it cost. Don't tell me the venues are paying for the police man power, that's BS!

Animal Planet wants to enter into a long-term agreement with the city of Chicago to allow taping of the unit’s everyday activities. On Wednesday, it received city council committee approval and could go to the full city council for a vote as early as next week.

Lateral hirings would be good, especially since many suburban officers attended our academy. Here is another solution for some quick relief. Rumor has it that there is a stack of applications at Personnel of former CPD officers that want to come back. They have not been allowed to return since J-Fled came into town. Any truth to this? The only former officers that are being retreaded are our military officers. Former officers who actually want to come back that would need a very short amount of training...and they will not let them back. What is wrong with this picture? Can anyone in Human Resources or the Academy verify this situation?

I'm not getting why this guy has so many paid police"guards". It is a waste of taxpayer's money and should be stopped. All these officers should go back to the street to help alleviate shortages, just the big "100" Daley's going to hire. Get rid of Daley's band of guards, too.

Both these knuckleheads should pay for his own security team if they feels so threatened. Let there be a police report made and let the detectives investigate the claim like they do anyone else who was "threatened". There are people threatened by verbal assaults all the time.As a citizen of this city, the politicians should just do their work and stop acting like royalty, rock stars, etc.

ALL of them, the ones that may not be thieves are too silent about those that are. 25 wards by 2012, catchy isn't it. 25 by 12. Being an alderthing is not a royal position. It is a civic service. All perks need to stop. No cars, no freebies. No outside employment. Service to the city is it's own reward. No law firms (hmm, Eddie and Pat etc..) No real estate firms, (Banks etc..)
