Last Chance to Apply

  • Monday is the deadline for those interested in becoming Chicago's next Top Cop. While Philadelphia's Police Commissioner Charles Ramsey removed himself this week from the running, it's expected there will be a healthy competition of those who want the job. Some are Chicagoans, some are not. After the written applications are read, the nine-member Police Board will hold interviews for perhaps 10 candidates. The board will then present three choices to Mayor-elect Rahm Emanuel for his final choice.

    Included in the application -- four letters of recommendation and answers to four essay questions. Also, the Police Board is trying to predict ahead of time how the next superintendent might handle a legal crisis. Those interested must answer the question, "Have you ever invoked the 5th Amendment, and why?" Police experts are calling it the Phil Cline question.

The going salary seems to be between $330,00 and $400,000 per year. Plus car, condo, and who knows what else.

For those out there thinking about bidding to 023, think twice. If u end up on 3rd watch you will be treated like an 8 year old child. Absolute miserable watch b/c of the capt and the first day you arrive you'll be wishing you had stayed put in whatever ghetto your in now. Believe me it's better. That's how bad 023 3rd watch is.

Any candidate who is willing to eliminate most of the politics from promotions and assignments is automatically eliminated from consideration. Ditto to those who bring new and fresh ideas to a department that has resisted change since 1880.

Why in a Dept. of supposedly over 10,000 we always seem to come back to the same old tired no talent yes men (women) and connected hacks for consideration.


Why not try something new? Choose a working policeman! Not some lacky who has been hiding from the street for most of their career.

Why don't they put the applicants on the lie box, just like a federal applicant? Ask questions like - Have you ever covered up the wrong doing of another exempt member? Have you ever been under the influence of illegal substances while on duty? Have you ever committed a sexual act with another department member? Have you ever jammed an innocent copper? Have you ever stolen overtime? Have you ever lied about department statistics? Have you ever cheated on a department promotional exam?

That is, if you want honor and integrity running this department...

I doubt seriously if the salary and benefits are that high. A house/condo has never been provided for anyone hired by the city. It is possible that this could be the exception if the person comes from out of town. The word in political circles has been and still is that the new mayor wants a women for superintendent. No word on race/ethnic group. I think he wants to make a splash and do a first. If the women is qualified, progressive and open to new ideas and would make a concerted effort to remove the political influence from the job, then who would care? Not I for one. If someone is worried about skeletons in someones closet that would disqualifiy a person for the job ( Kirby), the skeletons would have to be of immense proportions otherwise no one will care. One example, Hal Baskin who continuously runs for 16th ward alderman has more skeletons that I can count, to include felony arrests for fighting with the police ( he was released without charges on the orders of the DC). No one in the media is interested one bit, or the police department for that matter. A DC/Watch commander does not have the authority to release a felon without charges, only after a rejection by the ASA, and investigation by detectives, but that never stopped someone from doing it.

BUT THE SAD FACT IS THAT MONEY WILL COME OUT OF R PENSION FUND!

I KNOW WE ALL FORGOT ABOUT THAT.

SO MAY BE RAHM CAN HAVE THE OTHER PART OF THE NEXT SUPE COME OUT OF OEMC PENSION FUND OR 401 K PLAN.

SO TO ALL THE OFFICER WHO WERE REJECTED FOR DISABILITY ITS TIME TO SPEAK UR MIND.

THE PENSION SHOULD BE BASED ON RANK OBTAINED NOT THOSE CLOUT SPOTS LIKE DEPUTY OF PAPERWORK OR CHIEF OF SHIT AND GIGGLES.

most of the names offered are either....morally or ethically defective, intellectually challenged, bankrupt in police experience, and/or are politically corrupt (i.e., they would, if they have not already, sold their soul, if they had one, to the political establishment), in exchange for a title, and to feed their personal ego, in order to define themselves, and their importance, by their position.....

Just because some pathetic shitheaded fed fucked us for that dollar amount for TWO FUCKING JOBS TO WHICH HE ONLY DID ONE EXTREMELY POORLY, doesn't mean the next fuckstick who comes in to further fuck the police deserves anywhere NEAR that dollar amount in salary.

I'll do it for no increase in my current pay. Not one penny more.

I'll make all my friends bosses. And their kids. I'll cover up for all my dirtbag family and friends when they get busted. I'll get on the news and tell everyone that all this violence is because there's too many guns, or not enough jobs, or because it's too hot, or too cold, or because of fifty year old racial inequality, or because the schools don't get enough money, or the math book is two years old, or because kids eat too much candy, or not enough. Whatever I tell them I'll make sure to tell the people #1 it's not your fault and #2 the fix is right around the corner.

I'll do it all for not one penny more than I make today.

I'll get mine down the road when I cash in my box of favors. I'll be the filthiest corruptiest superintendent you ever did see. And the people will love me.

Do you really believe that if a police officer makes a felony arrest, say for robbery, that the WC alone can say release the arrestee you do not have sufficiant cause? That has gotten a few WC in lots of hot water in the past. Felony arrests must be investigated. You sir, are the stupid one.
