Double Counting Again

Rahm's campaign pledge to put 1,000 more officers on the street continues to gather a smell around it, not unlike the alewives that wash ashore on beaches across Chicagoland:
  • Ninety-two police officers from administrative positions and some new recruits will be placed on street beats, Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Chicago Police Dept. Supt. Garry McCarthy announced Sunday during a press conference at a Far South Side park.

    [...] Of these 92 officers, 53 are graduated recruits from the Chicago Police Academy.

  • Starting July 21st, the 53 Probationary Police Officers, who graduated from the Police Academy last spring, will be deployed to districts 4, 6, 8, 10, 15 and 24.
So 53 of these officers, who have already been on the street since last spring, are finally off probation, so Rahm's going to count them as "on the street"?

Just where the hell did they serve their probation then?

Redeploying almost 500 officers from a couple of street unit into districts might give the districts more flexibility in terms of addressing localized problems, but it isn't putting officers "on the street" by any stretch of the imagination. Neither is this.

Unless of course you're the Chicago Sun Times sucking on Rahm's ass in an attempt to build up his record for a future senate or presidential run - then it's gold, especially to the uninformed.

Is the Fucking Media That Fucking Dumb? These recruits have been working the streets already and on their probation. The only thing that changed is they are permately being asigned to thier respective District of assignment. SO NO FUCKING NEW OFFICERS ON THE STREET! Fucking News Media should take a simple math course, LOL!!! Dummies

I'm too bored with the whole thing to go do the legwork for the media, but any 'reporter' worth their netbook could just do a google search and find a quote or two where Rahm has ALREADY stated that he's (previously) counted this class of recruits in the totals (back around the time they graduated, perhaps).

Then, that reporter could just total up the single counts and the false double-counts and have a really nifty article he could entitle, "The emperor has no clothes" or some such cleverness.

Face it, Chicago; we just don't have enough police to adequately protect you. And we SURE don't have enough to handle a G8 or a natural disaster or a terrorist act.

The Rhamster is going to play this numbers game until it gets cold outside. He is only trying to buy time until he can figure out how to hire more cops. I think the city wants to bring down the authorized strength to about 10,000. They probably think they can handle the crime with that number. We have lost 200,000 bodies since the last census so we will probably lose more in the coming years. And at the rate the gangsters and cops are icing the competition there will be even less.

Chicagoans love it when politicians lie to them. They have grown accustomed to this under Daley.

When a politician tells the truth, it's strange and frightening to them. They want to be lied to.

When Rahm puts 200 recruits in the academy in September, they'll hail him as a conquering ruler because that is where the last 250 will come from.

Just wait and see. He'll say he got 1000 when they start in September.

Months of idle hours with no instruction. You have very likely ruined those PPOs for the rest of their careers. The lazy ones now know how little they can do. The average ones will be less than average. The ones with possibility have to dig themselves out of a hole.

Do you think all of the illegals in this sanctuary city filled out the census? If you do, you're a fool. There are WAY more people in this city than are counted. How many illegals showed up for the protest marches? That's just a fraction of what's out there and we have to handle their domestics, drunk driving, gang banging and dope slinging.

Next May the G-8 Summit will expose the criminal disregard of alloted manpower needs. At this writing the current manpower is between 8,500-9,000. The Dept is approx 4,000 officers down from the BUDGETED 13,000. The officers required to deal with the violent protesters will be largely drawn from the mass hiring in the early 1990's and be 45-55 yrs in age. The probability of death, and long term disability of middle aged officers required to deal with the mayhem will eventually cost the city millions in payouts to widows or I.O.D.'s. NOW is the time to start hiring and fill in the shortages of the rank and file, not feeding the media with blatant lies about nonexistant officers in a immoral shell game for the cameras.

It's the Rahm and Garry show,

Why stop there;

Count the sworn members of every rank and job title as they come off of full and split furloughs as "hitting the street".

Within two years you could put between 20,000 and 50,000 officers back on the street depending how they plan their furloughs. That's pretty good for a roughly 12,000 member department.

Rahm, you're a politician, we almost expect it out of you after watching shortshanks for so many years.

Garry, you sir are a disappointment. Between the church and the beach you skyrocketed to a dis-likable level only exceeded by J-Fled. After fibbing about the beach, and prostituting yourself at the church, you have got a lot of explaining to do before you become what everyone hoped you would be, a police superintendent, not a puppet.

Day in and day out when you show up to different functions and coppers acknowledge you, don't confuse that with respect.

They don't respect you. They respect your rank.

Police Officers fight crime on a daily basis in spite of you, not because of you, and your imagined leadership.

We don't need Nancy Pelosi to show up at Murder scenes.

WE NEED YOU TO BACK THOSE OF US THAT DO SHOW UP AT MURDER SCENES OVER AND OVER AGAIN.

That's what a good superintendent does. When the mayor tells the press with a straight face that he is putting all these police officers on the district beats you don't have to be over his shoulder. You can stand up and say in short that more police officers must be hired to fix the long term
crime problem.

If you are a leader you would get in front of a microphone and tell the press that too many police officers are getting injured and killed and we need more help.

But let's be real, you won't do that because you signed a deal with the devil before you were hired, in order to be hired.

Off Topic: Doty watch

A major meeting of the UCPD has been called for 22 July at the International House. The time hasn't been exactly set yet, but it is open to the public. Major announcements are supposed to be made at this meeting. We here at the UCPD suspect that our long suffering (incompetent) chief Marlon Lynch will be elevated to a full Vice Presidency here at the UCPD.
It isn't a surprise; Much like your CPD, some employees here with the U of C who have major clout (like your former Mayor) seem to 'rise to their level of incompetence,' much like at 3510. Unfortunately, there is a downside; as much as everyone would like to see the unlikeable and incompetent Lynch flee from our Dept. immediately and without much notice, the common and prevalent fear among those of us with no where else to go to work in the law enforcement field is that DOTY will be elevated to the position of Chief....and that is a horror show we don't even wish to consider. It has been hypothesized here that Doty would possibly be elevated to an Assistant Chief position, whereby he would be answerable to Lynch, who, even elevated to a full VP status on the U of C board, would still maintain overall control of the UCPD. Neither scenario is to our liking, and after Doty reached out and fired our two most senior watch commanders a few weeks ago (under the guise of 'budgetary concerns'), most every other supervisor is walking around on eggshells, popping antacids and antidepressants like they're Lifesavers candy.
The house of cards continues its upward spiral
in the U of C insane asylum. But what more can we expect, when the President of the University is actively shacking up in a downtown apt. with one of our professors here, while his wife and family languish in the President's official residence located on campus? One of our Sgts. here categorized this place as 'Peyton Place for geniuses.' It does appear to be so!

Police manpower is most likely much lower than they're saying.

no more hits for us, dealer... we're standing pat on 8500 to 9000 total CPD.

There's NO ONE in city government willing and able to tell the truth.

Maybe that's why they're taking such at hard run at Policemen...

Do not blame the PPO's. They did not receive the bare minimum training in the districts. They were assigned to Michigan Ave to hang around and be visible. They were on the street in the 018. Now they are reasigned to south side districts. How is that adding officers on the street? I am concerned about the recruits form the last class. Without proper follow up training from FTO's, thay will have problems on the street.

City made an exemption for him with a lateral transfer.
All State requires is passage of State Firearms Exam/ State Firearms qualification / and some law classes.

You would think that the newspapers would grip onto the Bullshit, Rahmmie was on TV last night telling all that he is helping out the Clergy and citizens, this 2 faced bitch is going to run this city directly into the ground,m he then will make a mad dash back to Washington in 4 yrs and want to run for PREZ. As it is we cannot get any city services in our HIGH tax neighborhood so he can spread the wealth to all the Dog Asses that contribute not one penny.

Re: Garry McCarthy's Chief-of-Staff

See THEE (NYPD) RANT thread entitled "Question from our Brother in BLUE in Chicago" by "19pct" about ex-NYPD (Capt.) Bob TRACY, a good friend of Garry McCarthy.

However, reliable NYPD sources say that McCarthy's Newark PD Chief-of-Staff, Constantine "Gus" MINIOTIS just resigned and will be coming to the CPD. Both TRACY and MINIOTIS are ex-NYPD.

Prior to making captain, McCarthy worked fast Bronx pcts. (45, Sgt. in 43 and Lt. in 44). Then he went to Manhattan North where he was the C.O. of the 20th (Upper West Side) and the 33rd (Washington Heights) Pcts. Then on to the 7-0 (Flatbush) in Brooklyn after then MOS Justin Volpe allegedly sodomized arrestee Abner Louima with a toilet plunger in the 70th Pct. bathroom.

Again, check THEE RANT for more...

Around 20 weeks.. Give or take a few if they want to rush you through. But how does he run the department and get trained at the same time.

Bill: OT, but check it out:

From American Thinker

"Jonah Edelman, director of Stand for Children, and son of Peter and Marian Wright Edelman, spoke at a seminar on education reform. He was caught bragging (see video -- embedded below) about his involvement in undermining teachers' unions in Illinois.

It may look like business as usual for so-called education reformers to use lobbyists, PAC money, and influential politicians like Rahm Emanuel to get their agendas enacted, but Edelman gives us invaluable insight into the inner workings of a leftist's hardball approach to the opposition, in this case the unions. The end result was a power shift in the education platform."

The police department always gets ragged on as far as salaries and what-not, and how we're draining the city dry. Take a look at the city's budget numbers sometime and see who makes more than we do. I've got 20+ years on and they show my salary as 82878. Here are a few jobs that pay more than we get:

Civil engineer IV $96276
Electrical mechanic $84032
Senior programmer $91260
Engineering tech $84888
Program director $102060
Traffic signal rep. $84968
Coord of Spcl. Proj $97416
Corp. Counsel $87900
Financial officer $102060
Environmental engr. $88140

Just a small sample

OT - City Stickers. Scotch makes a sticker that you attach to the window and you place the city sticker on that. It pulls off with no residue. Sold at hardware stores.

I use it on my hardtop, but don't use it if you have a convertible, valet your car a lot, or usually leave your windows open.

Some of my supervisors (actually most) are twice as dumb as I am.

Could we count all of them as 2 ?

That would help Ramster pile on his BS count.

Hey, Asshat. I hope you feel the same way when you have a major ailment. There are plenty of us who busted our ass to get back on the streets. Maybe life is easy behind the desk. But, some of us work and things happen that can't be attributed to IOD. Or, are you promoting faking it? ASS.

the 500 officers re-assigned to 'troubled districts' didn't help...we just allowed people assigned to those districts take 'cu' time when needed.
I was sent sent to a 'super busy district' and am working 99 on 3rd watch.

We have lost 200,000 bodies since the last census so we will probably lose more in the coming years. And at the rate the gangsters and cops are icing the competition there will be even less.

7/18/2011 01:39:00 AM

Do you think all of the illegals in this sanctuary city filled out the census? If you do, you're a fool. There are WAY more people in this city than are counted. How many illegals showed up for the protest marches? That's just a fraction of what's out there and we have to handle their domestics, drunk driving, gang banging and dope slinging.

7/18/2011 10:05:00 AM

Brown is the new Black.

The N/E corner of 024 (on the lake no less)is an unmitigated shithole that is basically not patrolled due to lack of manpower. It is a shame we let that part of the City go.

You are wrong to celebrate clearing out the all the inside jobs, especially in the Districts. Civilians are not Police Officers and cannot be used for anything other than clerical work. They are not bodies we can use in a crisis.

Gmac sounds like a fun name in a 'we like you' sort of way. McNuts is so much better.

He doesn't take gym class, or reading comprehension, or go to the Art Institute to learn how to assess a crime scene from oil paintings (that one was outrageous, when the recruits did that last year).

He doesn't need the range time, since he's already allowed to carry a gun. Hmmm, so all he really needs is to learn Illinois law and General Orders, when you come right down to it.

Talk about Smoke and Mirrors, Capt. TJL in 023, 3rd Watch runs 5 missions a day just to say he had 2 parkers on a Public Violence Mission, and brags in roll call that more parkers will cause the ganbangers to leave the area and that parkers are a very effective tool for combating gang violence. Then he stiil has to make his comments about the Medical.IOD situation on 3rd Watch. He told all the officers at roll call that THEY should call up all the officers on the Medical and make sure they get back to work. He then sends a Sgt. on 3rd Watch from 023 to conduct Medical follow up on all officers on the Medical. What a waste of resources. This tool created his own set of Mission forms that the Sgt.s have to fill out, then the Lt.s had to initial off every one and file it and record it on the file. He even put in his own revised date on the lower left corner of these form where the CPD# would go on official forms. These are all his ways of making busy work that serves no purpose but to fill his ego.

And now, you have advertised that there is an '04 Corolla CE on the street in East Rogers Park that has a free city sticker available to whoever wants to break that window. Bright. Really bright. And you called someone ELSE an asshat?
