not sure where to put this but very interesting fact i learned a bit ago.

A lot of friends and family members who for some reason like to enjoy downtown always ask me about everything going on. so i directed them to those iphone apps that let you listen in the police radio. i figured at least its a way they can hear where the shitbags are and avoid those areas as best as possible.
now a few months ago zone 4 (1&18) worked just fine. then all this bullshit with downtown started back up and what do ya know. all the the apps now have an error with only zone 4. some took it right off their list. I find this interesting because it seems very odd that a all of the sudden it dosnt work. i checked all other districts and no problems at all. so the city has silenced the media, as we all know (since i still have family members who dont fully believe me when i tell them whats going on) and now they silenced apps that any peson with a phone could hear all this bullshit going on and decide not to come downtown..

now obviously its best overall the keep our communications private as to not alert the shitbags to what the police are doing. but whats the ratio of good people who have iphones to the shitbags that do ( not including all the assholes who steal them daill, i also use the term good people lightly, meaning non criminals seeing as crybaby bitch yuppies downtown hardly qualify under good people) and taking out districts 1&18? i think 7&8 or 11 would be a lot smarter to silence.

and congrats to the scc. hapy birthday. i dont know how i would get through my days without this blog. seriously.

As a P/O assigned to 011, I would first like to say that I am happy to have all of the MSF/TRU personnel detailed to the district. Almost everyone is happy that you are here. We are trying our best to be inclusive. That being said, you are now a part of our district/unit/team/company/whatever you want to call it. We have been told to give you a period of acclimation. When you start putting yourselves down on traffic stops everytime a dispatcher tries to give you a job, you reinforce your stereotype. The same goes for holding multiple cars down on a simple arrest. It also doesn't help when your sergeant unsuccessfully attempts (thanks to the W/C), to hold all of the rapid/10 hour/MSF/TRU cars, down on a mission and specifically tells the zone they are not to be assigned radio assignments while the district is in a severe backlog. We are glad you are here, don't get me wrong. But, unless you want to be treated like outsiders you may want to assimilate. Welcome to 011.

No wonder they sent him to 023, if this guy actually had to deal with "real police work" like shootings and stuff he would be in way over his head. It's very apparent that this guy never worked the streets in a busy district before.

OT:
Is this the start of the new Comunity based Chaplains Unit:

Hello Friends,

The Chicago Police Chaplains Unit, the Fellowship of Christian Police Officers, and the Park Community Church invite you to a presentation of a powerful movie that addresses real issues in the life of law enforcement officers and their families.

On Saturday, June 4th at 7:00 pm, "The Grace Card", a powerful movie about grace and forgiveness that centers around two Memphis police officers and their families will be shown at Park Community Church, 1001 N. Crosby (between Division and Chicago, just West of Larrabee).

“The Grace Card” deals with some very serious issues in police work, family and our communities. The movie is rated PG-13 and is not appropriate for children under 13. The movie does benefit teenagers because it covers issues relevant to adolescents.

We plan to make popcorn and to order in pizza and pop for the fellowship afterwards.

There is no charge to attend but an RSVP to Community Emergency Response Team Leader Sheldon Ross of the 18th District, Chicago Police Department by Friday June 3, 2011, is needed to estimate the number of people attending to order adequate refreshments. Please RSVP to Sheldon at dac18cert@aol.com.

There is a free parking lot at the church both underneath the building and outside. Also, the 18th District parking lot is adjacent if you have the proper parking credentials.

Please invite your family and friends to this event.

Information about “The Grace Card” can be found at http://thegracecardmovie.com.

Park Community Church www.parkcommunitychurch.org/

Saturday, June 4, 2011

There's a reason people read this blog. Your threads speak to a logic and perspective that is hidden from view in every established Chicago media outlet I see. It should be called Respectable People Think.

Our local culture and the politicians who have fucked it up beyond recognition live in an egotistical bubble that does not extend beyond themselves. These clueless, greedy bastards have kissed the asses of the most useless, least productive segment of our society in exchange for the decent, hard-working people who fund it all and, as history has proven time and time again, that is not a good idea.

Congratulations and thanks for all you sacrifice to provide the time and space for people to vent, expose and commiserate over the shortcomings of this once great City and the (current) sad state of its Police department.

The MSF/TRU squad that has been assigned to 011 seems that they do not have to answer jobs due to being on a Zone 3 mission, that was until 1199 called in 1140 to let him know they are not in a unit anymore but are district personal. Welcome to radio assignments ladies and gents, your a lowly beat car, now handle that missing persons job.

wait a minute, why are they not taking calls? Scc, maybe this should be made aware to everyone. Why do the beat cars STILL have to suffer even though there are finally enough bodies. Hey msf/tru guys, dont pull that crap of putting yourself down to avoid taking a job. if your on a stop you say, ok squad.. were on a quick stop throw it on the box and we will get to it... supervisors should not be putting these guys down on missions where they cant take jobs. there were 6 dead and 21 others shot yesterday... ever can that can be used out there should be up to answer jobs... not doing dopw and one bagger missions.

ANCHOR BABY BRINGS BIG BENEFITS

Mayor Emanuel Teams With Comcast To Worsen Digital Divide -- Exclusive New "Sanctuary City" Broadband Plan Shuts Out Childless, Elderly, Working Poor

"CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Comcast Corporation Executive Vice President David L. Cohen visited Woodson Library in Washington Heights to announce the launch of Internet Essentials in Chicago.

"Internet Essentials, a groundbreaking Comcast broadband adoption program, provides low-cost access to the Internet and affordable computers as well as digital literacy training [ONLY] to families with children who receive free lunches under the National School Lunch Program (NSLP).

"...eligible participants will receive:

"XFINITY Economy Internet Service for $9.95 per month (plus applicable taxes) with no activation or equipment rental charges;

"The opportunity to purchase a computer for $149.99 (plus applicable taxes);

"and access to online, in print, and in person digital literacy training."

-Chicago-Mayor-Rahm-
Emanuel-Announce-Launch

As much as I hate him, I have to say in comparison that at least Mayor Daley's idea was for free citywide wireless connectivity.

...and I think the full title is the "National School Lunch Program To Provide Fresh Fruit To Be Thrown At Others On The Way To Buy Grape Soda and Flamin' Red Hots From The Vending Machine."

I mean, near-100% rates of morbid obesity, diabetes, and low IQ don't just happen. They have to be helped along -- but at least kids who can't even spell their own names will have computers to hit other children over the head with, leave on the bus, etc.

Any live-in boyfriend should have the "basic life skills" needed to trade one of those laptops for a $5 rock -- and there goes LaQuanda's whole future.

Huh? Yow! Was that a bird? Why? Who? I mean, like, where's my, my medication?

"wow what a bunch of lies... I was at the beach yesterday with friends. It wasnt closed because a few people got sick. It was closed because of the large mobs of thugs and gangs that were down there hanging out and messing with people. several beachgoes were beat up, robbed, women groped by the bands of thugs and we counldnt do anything about it... they were surrounding people walking, stealing coolers.. walking up to people opening coolers and stealing food and pop and just causing all types of trouble. ive gone to north ave beach for years and have never seen this type of trouble...

______________________________

Well looking at the list of officers that went to 011 from MSF, this doesn't sound surprising. That is not to say that the whole group is useless, but a certain few are more than likely offended that they have to work the beat car.

Now to hold them donw on missions all night, well isnt that counter productive to the whole disbanding og TRU/MSF? In a certain south side district that I was sent to, man things are good. Good white shirts so far and everyone actually gets along. Minus the typical non sense of south side domestics, it ain't all that bad

The MSF/TRU squad that has been assigned to 011 seems that they do not have to answer jobs due to being on a Zone 3 mission, that was until 1199 called in 1140 to let him know they are not in a unit anymore but are district personal. Welcome to radio assignments ladies and gents, your a lowly beat car, now handle that missing persons job.

Bro-ham...only certain cars were held down in the particular zones and were to receive jobs in that zone...this was said at roll call per 1199 3rd watch...no different than any other district...trust me...

If you send your son to St. Rita, you really should be worried, how many more shootings do you think will happen within 1000 feet of that dump, before a stray bullet catches a Mustang?


Wow - what a sh*thole that area has become - even worse now than it was 10 years ago.

Go Mustangs.... yeah, go hide.

It's a shame the surrounding neighborhood is shitty! It's a excellent school and beautiful campus! It still has a very strong alumni base, it might be time for them to move again before someone gets hurt ot worse killed.

As a P/O assigned to 011, I would first like to say that I am happy to have all of the MSF/TRU personnel detailed to the district. Almost everyone is happy that you are here. We are trying our best to be inclusive. That being said, you are now a part of our district/unit/team/company/whatever you want to call it. We have been told to give you a period of acclimation. When you start putting yourselves down on traffic stops everytime a dispatcher tries to give you a job, you reinforce your stereotype. The same goes for holding multiple cars down on a simple arrest. It also doesn't help when your sergeant unsuccessfully attempts (thanks to the W/C), to hold all of the rapid/10 hour/MSF/TRU cars, down on a mission and specifically tells the zone they are not to be assigned radio assignments while the district is in a severe backlog. We are glad you are here, don't get me wrong. But, unless you want to be treated like outsiders you may want to assimilate. Welcome to 011.

P.S. 1140 you are a tool.

We are happy to work just like everyone else...I personally dont know 1140...some cars in roll call were told to be held down in their respective zone and receive jobs only in that zone...this was per 1199 3rd watch...we are doing what we are told...I am doing what I have been doing for close to ten years...backing up by fellow POs and locking up those that need it...we are all glad to be in 011...trust me...

Honestly, quit your bitching! No, you go ahead and handle the missing, ghetto domestic, auto accident pd only, auto accident with injuries, etc.... While I go and find a gun, chase a stolen vehicle, go on foot chases (extended foot chases too), intimidate the gang bangers, arrest people for forcible felonies AND kick some ass. It's in my blood to do some police work and if you want to be a lazy fuck and sit on a commercial alarm or a parker for 1 hour then fine. But at least let the real police be the real police.

Interesting news from the Command staff meeting. They are not happy with the 4 & 2. Thousands of man hours wasted every day with the shift change and not enough cars/Beat Tags. J-Fled is being blamed for trying to curry favor with the rank and file(didn't work).

New schedule is being worked out and this will include rotating for the guys with less time on. They feel it is a better Officer that works all three shifts. Rotation to be more than the old 28 days.

That which is old is new again. Should be an interesting contract negotiation time.

Shut the fuck up you bitter prick! Like those officers never answered a radio call before or think they are better. I was in MSF and just like any unit or any district you have your d bags and workers. You sound like a bitter asshole who's going to bitch no matter what. Things can be perfect and you would still bitch. Like answering the radio is hard! Our job is easy, stressful,but easy. Just do it and shut the fuck up.

Reading a lot of bitter bloggers so happy MSF and TRU was disbanded....WHY? We need officers, maybe not as many, to be proactive, police, and be able to respond with in minutes. It wasn't for me, but that's just me. I'm glad they took some people out of those units and made area teams. WE STILL NEED THEM!

1140: squad I called the previous dispatcher and told her not to give us any jobs, keep them on their missions all tour
Dispatch: umm, ok I wasn't aware.
1199: take them off their missions now and have them handle some damn jobs
1146: take this fire. 10-4

Say what you want SCC your the best I don't always agree but dam if you don't stir-up truth! Just a thought with the demise of msf,tru and the pending demise of Leos geu and Leo retiring who do they call when they need coppers quickly? HMM! Lets see go through all the districts and take 2 cars X 25 maybe 50 coppers. Now from there we will have coppers who want to mix it up,and the others who know that they will lose everything if they properly put the savages in their place. The only solution rahmbo is to call out the national guard who will not follow dumbocrat city laws they enforce federal laws and will GOD willing "shoot to kill" the animals that are attacking the good people! Personally i am sick of all this shit, but pray always no coppers get killed or hurt due to manpower shortage and the mayor who has no clue! Gmac not to sure if you will bring anything good to cpd,talked to a friend at fleet a handful of new vehicles on order looks like another "summer of driving junk!"

To the person that has problems with St. Rita. Mt. Carmel is in a worse neighborhood, or at least as bad and they manage. St. Rita is a great school, great kids and faculty. They manage fine without your input. We are raising young men and as parents we are aware of the surrounding neighborhood. But a little extra Special Attention would be appreciated since you have so much time on your hands! BTW when my son was a freshman, two mopes decided to rob the 8 football players on the bus ride home. Both subjects exited the bus at the Plaza. They were placed in custody within 10 minutes and each received 4 years!!!! Because our sons were able to relate the incident to their parents: 1 Commander, an Area 2 Detective, a Sergeant and a Patrolmen. LOL

With all this talk of what Rahm wants from the department: give up the 55 and paid medical,get rid of the 4&2, return to rotating shifts but every 56 days etc. One has to wonder what the city could possibly offer in return? After all that's how contracts are NEGOTIATED. Each side must give and take. I don't think the giving part is in Rahms vocabulary only the taking part.
FOP better gear up for this fight. Rahm is coming for us.

Get rid of the 4&2? Back to rotating shifts? Right. And go back to handlebar mustaches and white striped piping down the pant legs and reinstitute the district bull dicks and vice men and get the district pad going with the help of the favored bag men.

With reform like Rahm wants it is only a matter of time before we go back to profit sharing of days gone by when the old timers had mason jars full of cash hidden away for a rainy day.

There is not enough time left in this cop's career to ever go back to rotating shifts or give up the 4&2. My 365 medical and 365 IOD are both fully charged and that will take me past retirement, if necessary.

And remember, never ever talk to a Fed.

Great. Contract expires June 30, 2012. The City won't begin to start to sit down to negotiate until 6 to 9 months after the contract expires. Expect it to go to an arbitrator again. Settlement in three years from June 30, 2012, that puts it at June 2015 the earliest.

And that is over two years after I retire. No longer my problem. I won't be losing any sleep over that one.

And besides, those issues are IN THE CURRENT CONTRACT! Steady watches are in the contract and have been since around 1993! Near 20 years when the begotiations begin. The union will never give that one up and it will be super tough to get an arbitrator to give it to the city. We've had it too long.

6&2 and rotating watches? Fuck them, not happening in my lifetime.

OT. As a copper who was returned to a district from a unit. I Love It! Now I have the ability to work in the same place all the time. While I am grateful for the opportunity to develop a wide wide knowledge of all how all the places I've worked in, I know get to gain a deeper knowledge that the beat officers have in the district I work in. I gained a lot of practical knowledge in a unit, but now I get to learn "who's who and what's what". In my previous assignment, I was in a different place almost every night.
I am thrilled to be back working in patrol in the most important job in the department.

From "Drudge Report"

Obama cracks down on civil rights abuses by big-city police departments...

http://www.salon.com/news/department_of_justice/index.html?story=/politics/war_room/2011/05/30/justice_department_civil_rights_police

Be careful out there, boys and girls. I know that the savages are out of control. Something needs to be done to get them back in control.

But the Obama (mis)administration has set its sights on police departments for "pattern of abuses", the mere number of excessive force complaints will trigger an investigation, which WILL find you guilty and send you to prison. They are looking for notches on their belts heading into the election, so PLEASE, do not put your ass on the line so your scalp will be hanging on their belt.

Funny that they announced this after a weekend where all across the country there are reports of urban rampages.

South Miami Beach, Fla
Rochester, N.Y. ribfest
Myrtle Beach, SC
Long Island, NY
Nashville, TN waterpark

Also remember the professor incident: before all the facts were in the Prez declared "the (white) cop acted stupidly."

This administration is not the friend of the working class and definitely not the friend of the police.
