Bright Idea

And by "Bright Idea," we mean, "What idiot thought this one up?"
  • Midnights in 007 have been warned! We are going to do a new type of patrol to win the streets. Commander Carrothers has decided that burglary/home invasion is the wave of the future in crime fighting. In the CO book there is a memo that states if there is a large party at a home, the R/O's are to arrest the home owner and then to confiscate and inventory their stereo equipment (speakers, turntables, etc.). So, not only will the p.o. now be sued eventually for violation of civil rights, the ASA will actually probably approve burglary charges.

    The beat cars are also supposed to make large arrests for disorderly conduct and mob action. I thought mob action got thrown out years ago, but then again I am but a non-clouted P.O. so what would i know. Large crowd, arrest them all. Party, arrest them all. So what if 8 beat cars are down on arrests and the backlog is huge, we are here to get the numbers up so the commander can move up. So what if there is NO backup when an officer is in trouble on a crazy friday or saturday night cause cars are down on these arrests. Blueshirts don't matter. Let them get hurt. As the commander has asked midnight P.O.'s many times: "how many years you got on? 5? I got 25. You haven't done anything." Pissers, drinkers and loud music arrests are the way to go. Guns? Not a "quality of life arrest" even though i'd rather have dude point his turntable at me than a gun, but what do i know. I'm not a child of clout.
We can think of at least fifty ways this can go wrong from the coppers entering the home to confiscating private property unrelated to anything but an Ordinance complaint. We are rapidly approaching (passing?) the "Police at Your Own Risk" point.

Have the 007th district men and women gotten the, "I've been the po-lice for blah blah blah years, you all ain't done shit" speech yet? Or the one, "when was the last time you made a quality arrest?

Get ready for pissers and dopws 007.

This guy struts around like a peacock in his yellow rimmed glasses. How he can actually think he commands respect from the troops with 2 federally convicted immediate family members is beyond me. Be very careful around this ballbag. It's all about him.

Oh my GOD! This has to be a joke. There are so many problems with this crazyness. For starters, what the hell is the charge for having too many people over at one's house? And under what law can P.O.'s confiscate stero equipment? Do not do this guys! This guy is either nuts or just dumb. Remember this guy is only a commander because of who his brother is. Wish the media would dig into this one.

photocopy the memo. then print out hundreds and hand them outto your "arrestees" just like the old domestic violence info sheets. Tell the arrestee that those are the commanders orders and if they are going to complain that the complaint should be made against him. Tell the arrestee also that it would be a good idea to include a copy of the memo when they file the complaint.

I heard from a friend When he was in 002 all he wanted was drinkers and pissers quality of life arrest. His motto was 3 cb#'s for drinking are better than 1 cb# for a CSA, Murder, or Agg Batt. He wanted quantity not quality. I couldn't believe it. I wonder what the citizens would want the police to do lock up that bum drinking or that guy trying to burglarize your home, or trying to rob you, I guess it's all about showing up to the meetings and saying my district made 2000 arrest this month but look at the type of arrest. They are all bull shit heads. Not real criminals.

I gotta say, I'm very impressed with these comments. I've had bad run ins with police (not with CPD) where stupid ordinance violations leave me without rights and the PO trying to violate more. Thanks CPD you guys (and gals) have actually restored some faith in police with this talk of not wanting to violate the rights of citizens. Honestly it's incredibly refreshing!

Keep spreading the word around your dept that selective enforcement works both ways. At some point the blue shirts in this city are going to have to decide that they will not follow the directions of those they have no confidence in, and begin targeting those VIOLENT offenders. You know, the violations of law that actually involve something other than voluntary transactions between individuals (drugs, prostitution) and really just go after those who deprive others of life and liberty. You all serve the people, not EB, Jfled, Shanks, or this Caruthers idiot.

OT, But still Stupid Leadership.
Aunt Bea is sweating a little.

She is wondering if she will end up like Dugan.
Aunt Bea said that if there is an investigation she will tell the truth about J-Feds driver and the merit list.

Apparently J-Fed "made it clear" that he wanted a few names on the list but only after the list didn't produce what he wanted. J-Fed ordered the Merit Board to reconvene and reevaluate their rankings. The board did the right thing and sent the list back the way it was.

J-Fed was pissed!!!! He sent Aun Bea to do his dirty work and she failed.

Every single member of the board was wondering why they were reevaluating candidates without new or additional information.

J-Fed not only lost control of the Exempts he lost their respect. He is a leader who rules by FEAR.

There may not be a criminal violation here but ethically and morally he F--ked Up.

Orders from a supposed leader who has never passed a promotion exam which was based on nothing but the general orders and policies of the police department and the laws of the state. Everything handed to him based on politics. What do you expect? But, when the complaints come in, he will not be the one to answer for them, you will.Imagine you having a house party in Mt. Greenwood and the police ome in and confiscate you stereo and break up the party? When I worked in Englewood, the problem was the taverns and clubs that were connected either to the politicians or the gangs. They caused all of the problems and they were protected by city hall and the brass of the department.

Hey 0110 hrs. Your idea about zeroxing the commanders order isn't too bright. It is still the individual officer who is in legal jeopardy.

So officers ignore the order don't do it, you'll be the ones holding the bag in federal court.

There is none.

If any of you officers do comply, then you are an idiot. And you get what you deserve.

Officers of 007 and elsewhere, never comply with a white shirts requests to lock up so and so, do this or that if it doesn't comply with the law. When you get sued or lose your job, they won't be there.

Be happy if you're fortunate to have supervisors between you and Commander Carruthers who know what the hell they are doing and have the stones to back it up. Someone should point out to AC that Freedom of Assembly is a fundamental right guaranted under the Constitution (1st Amendment), that should not be abridged. Breaking up loud parties has nothing to do with home invasions although it could possibly have something to do with driveby shootings or assaults. OTOH, you're more likely than not to start a police riot and get P.O.'s hurt for nothing. Hopefully somebody copies that memo and sends it on to Legal Affairs and the the Superintendent. He's no brainchild, but between him and Masters maybe they find a set and stop this in its tracks.

SCC,
You ask what idiot came up with this? That would be Ernie Brown, the new Deputy Superintendent of the Bureau of Patrol. It's in a memo to all Commanders in their message in boxes in I-CLEAR and currently posted in many C.O. books throught the city. I read it at roll call today. According to the memo many problems are arising from parties with underage people there after curfew and drinkers. They are instructing officers to break up these parties. What would the probable cause be to enter a private home to look for curfew violators or underage drinkers. If they're in a home how are they violating curfew? What person in their right mind would allow you to stroll into their home if there is underage drinking going on? Is he suggesting police officers do home invasions on people to break up parties?! Holy fuck is this guy goofy!

You do not have to obey a direct order when you as a police officer know it is wrong or unlawful. Tell the boss to get a cr number on you for disobeying his order to violate civil rights. You will have no problem responding to it.

Guaranteed that memo will be removed from co book, you watch.

Sounds like an unlawful order. In the military, a soldier has a duty to disobey such orders and report them. Such reports can be made through chaplains if the chain of command is a problem.

This is the perfect example of what is wrong with the "merit" system. When you have the "best of the best", who have been sponsored through multiple promotions, where you literally had to sign your name and not answer one question correct to get promoted, how exactly do you think that they will be able to not only correctly interpret the law, but advise subordinates on the proper enforcement procedures to take in direct response. If you are not smart enough to figure out how to pass a test which relied extensively on the skills relating to making decisions and interpreting information presented to you, then you sure as hell will get some of our hardworking officers into trouble. Maybe one of the tests for the eligibility to qualify for a "merit" promotion should be a sample policy written based upon one existing statute. This would give a clue as to one, whether or not the prospective "merit" candidate actually could make sense of something written in the English language and secondly, how they not only implement policy and make decisions, but whether or not they are effective communicators. Maybe a 3rd grade spelling and comprehension test would suffice. My goldfish understands the 4th Amendment better. Speaking of the 4th Amendment, did the "mericonvictorious" commander skip that training? You want a leader, here's my advice: I would not follow any of these fucking jagoffs!!!! Don't do anything to jeopardize your job, but batten down the hatches and wait for the storm to blow through. It's coming, I can almost see the sunshine creeping along the horizon.

Well officer you keep this shit up looks like you will be living in the ghetto with no job. And what constitutes an illegal party? If you're talking about not having a permit/license to charge at the door, be prepared to spend your entire tour of duty and then some conducting a real investigation to prove this. Send in an undercover with recorded cpd funds to pay dude at door, to pay for booze and food, to pay for piece of ass, whatever. UCO better have good recollection of who did what when gangbusters come in and search everyone to recover recorded cpd funds. After your tact team controls and search all 150 party guests, you need to interview and name check all 150 before releasing. All names and statements have to be recorded on your report. Thats just the basics, now call asset forfeiture and licensing to get the rest.

OFF Topic....food for thought

YOUR PENSION AND YOU!!!!!

The opinion acknowledges that the constitution creates a contractual agreement between the workers and the state's employee pension funds. But it concludes that neither the constitution nor the law say the state is a guarantor of that obligation.

The Sidley opinion argued that the state can become a guarantor only under section 2l2-403 of the Illinois Pension Code. That provision states that if a state pension fund runs out of assets "(a)ny pension payable under any law . . . shall not be construed to be a legal obligation or debt of the State . . . but shall be held to be solely an obligation of such pension fund, unless otherwise specifically provided in the law creating such fund."

So, does any law creating the pension funds "specifically provide" that the state would become the guarantor? Sidley examined the laws creating the five state pension funds and concluded that while each contains an "obligation of state" provision, none guarantees that the state will step in and pay the funds if they run out of money.

In simple language, that means if the pension funds run short of cash, public workers face the same sort of uncertainties that most workers in the private sector do.

Wow...white cops in 007 already playing a 'PRE-race card?' Has anyone ANYWHERE seen an all-black tact team in any district? I can't recall such an event either.
Especially since few black officers want anything to do with tact. Too many hours, and as all you hard chargers know, too many CRs, which could affect your chances of advancement or promotion
(everyone knows that no one can get into those specialized units with a lot of CR baggage, unless you are one HEAVY MOFO). I can understand people being skeptical of Carothers (probably with good reason), but chill out on the panic button racial panic BS, will you? And if he gets rid of Chambers, he will be doing what just about every new Cmdr (black, white, whatever) does when they move into their new command: surround themselves with people they trust. It's doubtful that Carothers will move another Tact Lt. into 007 until after the new Lts. are made. And truth be told, being the Tact Lt. isn't the glory/gravy job it once was.

One thing is certain. jodypweis will be getting subpoenas for lawsuits for years after he leaves the employ of the CPD. Ask any retired boss from the inner circle. They still get those pesky demands for depositions and still find their names on pieces of paper that result in repeated visits to federal court. jodypweis will be commuting back here for a long time dealing with the lawsuits he is generating now.

The rumor about the all-black tact team is true. Not sure about the tact LT getting dumped but he's useless anyway and a merit hack.

8/18/2010 09:14:00 PM


Anyone remember when Fred Rice got here and dumped loads of non-black officers from high places at 1121 S State? There were some who drove new Cadillacs courtesy of Superintendent Rice after that debacle.

Drinking and smoking, ever think of trying to get them off the street before they shoot somebody?
XXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXXX
You are not the police, that is painfully evident.

A little info here, you lock someone for drinking or smoking they are out in 3-4 hours...to go right back to the hood doin what they been doin

In the mean time,two officers are off the street for 1-2 hours processing...that's two less officers to handle jobs or catch the shitbirds real dirty.

A simple talking to, name check or even a ticket is the better solution.

There used to be a day not too long ago that just knowing the popo know you be out there was enough to keep the corners clear.

They didnt want to heat up the block...bad for business

Now they could give a shit

'Here's another one from 007 he's about to dump the tact LT. because he's not black and he also wants 30% more black officers on tact.'

Like him or hate him, he's the new Cmdr., and he has the right to have a tact Lt. of his choice in that seat. Chambers has been there a long, time, so it might be that a change is good for the district and Chambers. Rumor had it a while back that Chambers was going to get 008 and the Fat Man there was going to be laterally moved....so what happened?

8/18/2010 11:43:00 PM
Take race out of it and what you have in Chambers is (Worked the desk as a P.O. Then as a Sgt. Never worked Tact! Dumb as a box of rocks) That would be a good reason to get rid of his ass!
The only person in that building that hid behind mommy's skirt much as Chambers was Calloway!
The only way either made an arrest while on the job was calling 911

How he can actually think he commands respect from the troops with 2 federally convicted immediate family members is beyond me.

Didn't we lose a Superintendent a while back because he was friends with a convicted felon?

8/18/2010 08:45:00 AM

No big loss really. His picture was on the wall of an 18th District joint along with some dees, dem and dose guys whose names all ended in vowels.

The 18th District W/C got a rush call one afternoon to send a car over there and get the supe's picture off the wall before the reporters got there. True story.

Not the first CPD sworn to consort with people with "convicted felon" on their rap sheet.

And the funny part is matts driver moved on to next supt, then to santos and now to the treasurer stephanie neely the same tresurer who is suing Mike Shields and "our" pension board for telling the truth about her getting paid off for votes! Ahh LAPA does well with the head of her police detail all D-3 pay and 7 coppers that is excessive for a do nothing detail!

Don't forget AC is a professor at Calumet College and many officers are being taught by this clown at this diploma mill clown college. For you officers enrolled in his classes, if you have any self-respect and brains you should drop out of his courses.

Yup, sure, I'm gonna push back getting my degree even further because you don't agree with a teacher. You go to any college/university and their instructors are way more liberal than this guy. Please! I'm approaching my second decade on this job, married, raising a family, struggling to get that piece of paper (diploma). I don't care what college name is on it.

Well don't get your hopes high on getting a decent job after this one other than a $10 an hour security gig at the mall. This college and whatever degrees they offer are a joke to most employers. Who knows, maybe you've got clout like AC and are able to land a government job with the shity or crook county with your basketweaving degree. Let me know who hires you with that clown college on your resume so I can go and apply too.

Re: photocopy the memo:

In addition to handing them out to arrestees, mail some to all newspapers and television stations.

Also, make sure Fox News gets a copy.

DO NOTHING CARROTHERS TELLS YOU TO DO!! His brother (former chairman of the police committee on city council) is a convicted federal felon on his way to prison. His father was an alderman who also went to federal prison. And now this hater gets promoted!

DO not do anything that is illegal, even if a supervisor tells you to do it. I'd rather face a CR number than a criminal complaint or a lawsuit. Also, LEARN the laws. They are your weapons against the ineptitude of those who think they "supervise" us.

Do NOT sign complaints for Disorderly Conduct. The Illinois Supreme Court ruled that officers cannot sign complaints for disorderly conduct on the public way. You will get sued and you may have to pay out of your pocket if the case is not settled.

Carrothers will be worse than Maurice Ford (former commander of 007). Carrothers is only looking out for himself.

Carrothers doesn't care about the police in 007. If you had any clout you wouldn't be in 007. So when he tells you to violate people's rights, and you get sued, or criminally charged, it's no big loss to the clouted class.

Watch yourself. The supt says he has your back but there is a big cliff with a big fall in front of you if you do Carrothers bidding.

You can pretty much guarantee that a diploma from the University of Phoenix will land you a job as fry cook at a greasy spoon while one from the University of Chicago is generally worth a bit more.

It does make a difference and if you don't know what that difference is then you better go to the University of Phoenix.

In the 007th District, if you have never worked there, most of these parties take place on the street. Individuals pass out flyers to promote the parties, and sometimes, we get lucky and get our hands on one, getting an advance notice of the impending mayhem, and sometimes we are not. These parties have lead to MANY shootings, as they are mostly sponsored by the many different gangs that vary from block to block in Englewood. They have become the hotbed of driveby/walkup shootings, and pose a great hazard to the officers who are unlucky enough to work that particular beat. Any real policemen know that when groups of 20-100+ people gather for a party sponsored by gang members, the likelyhood of someone getting killed, and/or a policeman getting hurt, skyrockets! I was present when the commander spoke of this issue, and totally understood it. I am reading comments that suggest that an officer should ignore it? Go in and write a tvb? 007 has a LOT of young officers who are FULL of zeal for crimefighting, and don't always make the best decisions when confronting large groups of drunken, marijuana and ecstacy using idiots, and I'd rathen stand by their side shutting the thugs ganster/vice lord/blackstone/BD party down, than to be on the inside processing a traffic violator. You all spoke of "quality arrests", but realize that you find pistols, dope, and all sort of felony contraband at these places where they have a "right to assemble". If you hate the man, hate the man. This is a piss poor attempt to discredit an individual with two weeks on the job as a Commander. As long as he is promoting something that could throw a monkey wrench in the plans of this sick, demonic scum on the streets of Englewood, I am going to give him my support. ANYTHING that makes the job of my fellow officer easier, and less stressful when dealing with these thugs, is a NUMBER ONE priority, with me.

As far a the tact lt is concerned, why would he (Com. Caruthers) get ready somebody who troops ROUTINELY pick up people playing basketball at the lowrises with their friends for "Criminal Tresspass to state supported land", and who set back and pick off the dope fiends coming FROM the spot, instead of getting the actual gang bangers, if the commander was so concerned numbers?

This uneffective lt has alienated most of the real police with his "in your face", way of scolding and "discipling" officers who are hardworking, and is one major part of the reason why a district that had standing room only roll calls, has become a literal ghost town. If he was orange, red, yellow, or green, he's still be the same incompent individual that has passed over MANY senior, experienced, and VERY good working officers who ventured off to other districts to have an opportunity to problem solve as the police, without being tied down to the radio. They should send him and his officers to the fueling unit, or somewhere else where they would be be moved out of the way of the real police.

I also hope that he continues to "strut around" this godforsaken district so that he can find out more about the cancer that has grown to epic porportions causing the morale in our district to be dismal at best. GOD BLESS the working police, and a Commander that actually listens to them, and ACTS upon their information for a change.
