Lieutenant Story Grows

Channel 2 did a story this morning.

So did Channel 5.

PoliceOne.com and THEE Rant (NYPD) have picked it up.

Frank Main at the Sun Times did a month old story about the Cozzi decision in a lame attempt at deflecting ongoing controversy.

Word is more may be on the way. Keep their feet to the fire.

The only one who'll get in any hot water is the dope who issued the cr in the first place. The more the department fights the worst they look.

Question, will my ethnicity (white) and me being the first in my family venturing into law enforcement hold me back?

It didn't hold me back along with probably many others on CPD.

Myself and 2 brothers all made it and we fell into your category.... Its not a problem getting on. What happens for the next 20 or 30 years of your career may be a different story...... Alot is who you know and what etnic organization you belong too. Sometimes a nobody slips through and gets what she/he deserves (not everyone will agree with that). No matter what the paychecks come twice a month and you'll be glad for that. Better than most jobs these days (not everyone will agree with that).... If its what you want to do, be the Police, keep trying. Its not all as bad as it sounds here. Things change all the time here. Soon, it will be remembered only as a bad short time in our careers (not everyone will agree with that either...) Hopefully the change comes soon and we can move forward again with a Real Police leader....

Citizens of chicago must begin to shout out to everyone and anyone you can. Its not easy, because your supposed representatives will block your "negative" opinion. Meaning DO NOT go through your alderman or any represenative of your area. They are all incahoots.

What can you do? Start big time publicity stunts. You have to get the media behind you. Elect the most intelligent and articulate speakers to represnt you. Don't just shout and bitche, you must bring eloquent and artculate facts forward.

It may seem weak in the beginning, but you have to keep doing it and doing it. And yell and yell and yell at the mayor - who is the one responsible for this crisis.

Well lookie here, all it took was one selfless essay on the truth of the state of this department from someone who has nothing to lose. Look, if you have twenty years on and are over fifty you can leave this place with your head held high and a nice pension. You too have nothing to lose. BUT kissing ass is so important on this job that the rest of you higher ups that have not come forward yet to support this LT. ought to be RIGHTLY ASHAMED OF YOURSELVES. We finally got this fool on the ropes and we need another flurry of punches to knock him out. He never met a press conference he didn't like until this one. It wasn't easy for the LT. to start this ball rolling and Larry Yellin started a shit storm when he cut down the pitchman Billy Mays(RIP) in the middle of one of of his "crime is down" informercials.

The best thing I can think of would be to vote daley out of office. He wrought this and other abominations on the citizens.

Get rid of daley and vote a decent human being in to help get rid of the massive systemic corruption that has run rampant in Chicago for years.

Get rid of daley and weis and many others will be kicked out of town right behind him. Until then, write letters to the US Attorney demanding a federal investigation of the corruption in the administration of the police department.

We all tend to agree with the Good Lieutenant. Unfortunately we can't get 2 coppers to agree on where to eat lunch. The biggest and BOLDEST support we can give John Andrews is to copy and paste his letter (verbatim) and sign our own names on the bottom line. The department probably would not and logisitically could not fire one/two/three/four thousand of us with the current fatal shortage that we are operating under. There is not one person in IAD that disagrees with his letter. They are doing what they are being told to do. The department is afraid of such truthful and damning verbage such as that which was written!!!

Remember, a press pass is a REQUEST for courtesy.
He has no right to boss any police officer around. And yes, if he gets too pushy and interfears with the police, you can taek his veickle and personal pass away.
Remember to inventory it and send a copy of everything to the union.

This would be soooo much easier if John was a good guy. His support of Harley, who was a stone cold asshole, when he was in 008 and his disdain for subordinates and co-workers make him almost an anti-hero, the rotten guy you just have to like, kind of like the assassin in No Country for Old Men. Make no mistake, his motives are totally self serving. Maybe Harley will hire him out in Lyons.

Having said that, despite his motives, he is dead on in his commentary. The problem is that this is turning into a First Amendment issue instead of looking at points that are brought up and looking at their merit. We know them to be true, but proving some of these things are tuff. Not impossible. A good reporter could probably get a Pulitzer nomination because this is a back door into how the Daley Machine operates and wastes tax payer money. We need to stay focused on the content though and worry about first amendment stuff if and when it happens.

But, does anybody wonder why we have to sign anonymous instead of our names. We who aren't in the KMA and have family obligations and need our jobs, for now. We have already taken a no confidence vote. FOP needs to get more involved.

------------------------------
On the one hand, there is the first amendment that generally prevents governments from interfering in legitimate free speech on the part of individuals.

OTOH, the LT is part of management of a city department and there is some expectation that he toe the line as part of accepting that level of job. It may be that he cannot have it both ways.

My guess is only a court case can tell for sure.

Is there any directed effort at having a show of support for the Lt. for the meeting mentioned about his possibly being disciplined on Friday? I guess that making and keeping exempts that have multiple positive warrants executed at their residence where both weapons & narcotics are recovered; keeping exempts that are involved in highly public/newsworthy domestic incidents where there is electronic and audio evidence supporting a patrloman having his employment threatened; making a career meritorious, ethically challenged member of a convicted felon family into a district commander & creating a new unit for an inexperienced, unqualified with undistinguished arrest career record house mouse doesn't qualify as bringing disrepute to the department. It's reassuring to know that J-Fled ( Gotta' go! ) doesn't know, or have to abide by the moral code and ethics that so many of my fellow working police live by each & every day. Area 1 Detective

Computer viruses -- Watch out for a "browser hijacker" called "Alureon." You're doing a Google search and want to go to one web page you see; it redirects you to some B.S. "shopping" page or something.

Hard to get rid of. Avira anti-virus detects and clears it but it keeps coming back. The Microsoft Malicious Software Removal Tool won't even start. (Typical.) I ran "House Call," an online virus check from Trend Micro, and it detected spyware called "Morpheus" and wiped that. Working now to see if I'm in the clear.

People who write viruses are at least as bad as child molesters in my book.

It occurs to me; this kind of computer work takes hours and hours and hours; who's paying the people who keep churning this material out? It can't all be coming from a couple of college kids in Bulgaria, if you know what I mean...makes ya wonder.

Tried to post this on DSLC but it didn't make it on. Don't know why, but there must have been a posting error.

For John's information (and anyone else interested).

In the 1970's there was a Supreme Court decision in Mueller Vs. CPD. In this case a PO (Mueller) made controversial remarks about the police departments internal affairs division, in which he stated that they white washed every investigation. The department disciplined him with a suspension. Mueller took it to court and won in the Supreme Court. In the ruling it was stated that a police officer speaking as a private citizen (when off-duty) retains his right of free speech even though the department might find the statements offensive, as long as the statements are true. Hope this helps John when they attempt to nail him to the wall. Get a lawyer John.

Come on Jodi, you know the meaning of free speech. Back off! You can't afford anymore dissention!

This is not the first time, either. Keep those no-questions-asked government benefits coming, the free food and free backpacks full of school supplies and free medical care; you'd be an idiot not to try to make it up here for the easy living.

I think for citizens who want to add input to the WEIS problem, one effective way would be to maybe gather signatures from areas, districts where crime/police manpower is short, "letters to news" outlets from citizens being affected from his bad leadership, [backlogs/no manpower/no backup from CPD brass], and maybe "town hall type" meetings organized with news media on hand to spread the word. Just a few ideas i could think of, it would be a start to something big!!

That group on Facebook had better watch their P's and Q's. They are NOW under scrutiny at 35/Mich. Funny...looked at the coppers on that list. A whole 15 of them! None from a unit...all from Patrol Division. Shows the division amongst ranks. Actually, anybody in a unit would be a damn fool to support a page like that. Don't believe for a second J-Fed won't be eyeing the group members and taking a mental note to crush them later.
Specialized unit people will always avoid losing their spots. It's the Chicago Way!

Coppers beware of what you ask for.

If you knew JA because you worked with or for him I don't think you'd really like his "leadership" style.

Intelligent- yes, organized- yes, loyal to the CPD- yes, common sense- below average, leadership - poor.

Those are my subjective gradings from having worked with JA under somewhat stressful conditions.
I have no axe to grind and we never had words or dispute.

I too liked what he wrote and yes, it was fair and more accurate than
most city officials would want to admit.

BUT,

He's far from the knight in shining metal plate espoused by many who do not have a clue about who he is or what kind of a "total package" he actually represents.

One letter, signed, is one thing.
Go easy on the accolades.

Avoid superlatives. Always be safe.

But god forbid that someone else takes to long on coding a job. And people want to know why I don't do anything anymore on this job except assist officers and code jobs.

I am wondering about the possibility of starting a petition/ letter writing drive in every unit of the Chicago Police Department, politely but firmly and decisively worded in complete support of Lt Andrews and the spirit and intent of his recent blog posting.

This would require signatures of all those signing said petition/letter of support.

I don't want to jam anyone up by even suggesting doing this on department time or with department resources etc. but I think it would be wholly appropriate for those of us who feel just as Lt Andrews has articulated to provide a massive show of support for him.

If there is a lawyer out there among the ranks of the sworn, maybe could you type something up and format it correctly and forward it via email to SCC and perhaps SCC could post a .pdf acrobat file of the blank petition/letter of support so anyone could print them out and start accumulating signatures or signing individually and sending them to an appropriate higher authority.

Perhaps maybe even an eloquent retired Sgt. who feels passionately about this police department might assemble some words in the correct order and get 'er done.

What do people think about this?

Men are dumb sometimes.

I was having dinner with a female friend the other night when the SCC blog came up in conversation. I laughed when telling the story of a critical poster stuck in a time warp from the 90's who repeatedly blasts me with the same stuff over and over.

She whips out her iPhone and reads the threads. When getting to the poster I mentioned, she laughed. She said it is from a scorned woman - she could read right through it.

Well there ya go. Someone who apparently was plugged into the dept in the 90's but obviously not plugged in anymore...but seems to still hold extreme criticism.

Wow! Who could that be?

One who likes ponies?

Life is too short...

Both have their post-CPD plans in the works. Both are leaving the employ of CPD, one to retirement, one to another line of work. Soon.
