You Ignorant Assholes

This one goes in the "un-fucking-fucking-believable" category. Chief Tina Skahill of the Office of Compliance came out with a report on 12 July. The report is titled "Officer Activity - Central Control Group." In it, the report identifies officer activity in relation to the nature of their assignment. The report directs District Commanders to take an officer's work history into consideration when completing Officer evaluations. Here's the report (click for full size):


Leaving aside that this is proof positive that the rating system is nothing more than a numbers counting game which will eventually lead to "quota based" policing, we're royally pissed off at the content of the report. Get a load of this:


Check out that name right at the top of the report. The "Beat Relief Officer."
  • Michael Bailey, Star 13970
Do any of you fucking morons at headquarters have any fucking clue as to why Officer Michael Bailey, Star 13970 might not be generating any fucking activity for your oh-so-fucking-precious ratings system?
  • HE WAS KILLED IN THE LINE OF DUTY, YOU FUCKING ASSHATS!
We are speechless with rage just about now.

For starters, there ought to be an apology issued by Tina Skahill if there hasn't been one already to Officer Michael Bailey's family. Then there ought to be an apology made by each exempt signing off on this piece of crap report who didn't bother to read it and sent it through without catching Officer Michael Bailey's name - Juan Rivera, Beatrice Cuello and of course...:



And after apologizing to the family, each and every officer ought to get an apology that so many out-of-touch, meri-clout-orious, useless bosses would defile the name of an officer Killed in the Line of Duty by including it on an activity report a year after he died.

And then start demoting a few of these assholes.

"Bureau of Professional Standards" our asses.

The careless manner in which this report was published would seem to put in question its entire validity.

Or as the computer nerds would say "garbage-in garbage-out" or GIGO (pronounced Guy-go) reporting.

If you can't even maintain the list of active duty personnel in your report how can there be ANY confidence in the numbers.

It's just another example of our top-flight brass-the people who are now running/ruining this department! Weis (As Daley's hatchet man) ran out the few who would've made good superintendents and this is what we're left with.

No wonder they've had to go outside the department to find someone smart enough to be superintendent (and willing to be an ass-kisser/scapegoat) the last two times.

It's also sad, what this department has become.

This is Unforgivable and is a Prime Example of how retarded and pathetic our Command System is.

These type's of BullSh-t reports pass daily through the hands of Exempt Gold Star Dummies and you know they never actually READ the content, they just sign off and blow it up the chain.

This is Exactly why we need a complete re-do of the entire Exempt Staff. Most of them have NEVER EVER been the real police and don't have a clue what a police officer or detective actually does.

And we definately don't need 100 plus Gold Stars to run this B.S. Department, and 25 may be too many?

The Newspapers and TV need to examine this and Hold the new Mayor Accountable.

There is no-one proof reading this stuff, everyone is out on the street. But there is a apology in order on this one. This officer was killed in the line of duty, and he was guarding Mayor Daley's house the night he was murdered. Mike made it home and was killed out in front of his own house while cleaning his car. No area in the city is safe.

It is disgraceful to have a officer killed in the line of duty and on a list with officers failing to do any activity.

However I did see the department acknowledged these officers crime reduction ribbons.

I know its been said already on this post, but it needs to be said again and again.

The exempt staff as a whole is inept. This group of officers (exempt) were magically pushed (meritorously promoted) up 2,3, or 4 levels of rank in 1,2, or 3 years of time.

This exempt staff does not know what a D1 or D2 or D2a policeman does for a living. And more importantly - nor do they care.
The reason being is they did not have to crawl before they walked.

They (brown, cuello, peterson, skahill, caluris, andrews, georges, green, kennedy, rodriguez, carothers, carter, trahanas, tobias, etc) were given the magic carpet ride by Cline and Hillard. This is the ignorant shit that those 2 selfish mother fkrs waved in.

Yeah, so thank cline and hillard again.

ALL DEMOCRATS ARE COMMUNISTS SAYS:

The Hierarchic Supervisors of the Chicago Police Department remind me of a bunch of Children playing "I'm the Boss". It is so glaringly obvious that few if any, have ANY Leadership skills. This is just one of many, many examples of why the Chicago Police Department has become a political 3 ring Circus. All I ever heard for the last several decades is, Who's getting this spot, who's getting that, all because of their Political connections, NEVER because they were an outstanding officer, who just did their job in an exemplary fashion, without political connections. . Many fine, exemplary officers have left CPD in total disgust during the past 2 Supt's. Administration. Now the CPD truly has the department Daley wanted, just a regime to reward political chronyism, and favoritism, and leave the truely talanted without almighty "Clout", on the ground floor, as always . Even more amazing is how many of these "Annointed Ones" step on it so frequently, and nothing ever really happens to them, like demotions for their unprofessional conduct on and off duty, leading the informed observer to believe that they are paying via kickbacks to politicians, to keep their Supervisory spots.. The CPD will never be the Top Notch Law Enforcement Agency it is capable of being, as the City Political Regime is too busy using it as a reward system for political favoritism, nepotism, etc. Political Correctness, Affirmative Action, and Nepotism have truly turned a once fine but always politically-queered Crime-fighting Agency into a political Whorehouse of Pay-to-Play absurdity. Leadership in CPD is truly and sadly lacking in ALL aspects. A glaringly obvious, "Do as I say, not as I do" Administration, just like the Political Party that runs the City. The old-timers have gotten used to it, and eventually the newbees [10 yrs. and under] will too, as things will probably not change, and probably will get even worse, in regard to this issue. Like the 3rd Reich, Complete and utter allegiance and CONTROL, is what they are all about, despite what their Tools in City Hall and the socialist Chicago Media attempts to obfuscate.

Each and every one of these "YES!"men are posturing once again stepping over anyone they can, to kiss the ring of gMac.
It's an order like this that will be a detriment to Our moral and activity. They worry about 'activity' when for their whole career, these birdbrains were pushing pencils and counting beans behind a desk somewhere. The rest of us were running from job to job, crisscrossing the district handling bs assignments because HQ was overstaffed by 10-1 ratio and districts were short.
Friday is coming....and what new ideas are being throw around for the upcoming G8/NATO riots? Worried about activity- this is Our Leadership. And which current command staff have the fears of being first on the chopping block. Where's their personal 'activity' stats? Or their doctored resumes? How about releasing the Moral Study and Manpower shortages citywide.

THERE SHOULD BE AN IMMEDIATE SHUT DOWN OF ACTIVITY CITYWIDE UNTIL AN RETRACTION AND APOLOGY TO THE BAILEY FAMILY IS TENDERED.

Scarier is who's in line for the replacement of these twits.

Quotas were killed by the Federal law suit several years ago in a lawsuit brought on by the good citizens of Illinois and the peoples law office claiming citizens were being unjustly targeted by the Police to garner favor and ratings by their superiors. That is why they the powers that be dropped the entire Officer's rating system about seven years ago and these same merit-glorious seeking exempts know this. All I can say is I sat a roll calls and listened to bosses yell and scream about activity and how all employee contractual rights should not count and the Department dose NOT have to abide by the FOP contract! If you as a Police Officer cherish your home and family be carefull because those same exempts will throw you under the bus when the lawsuit is filed and that's NO BULL! All these same bosses were meritious and have extreme baggae from sexual harrasement suits to coveting drug dealers and threatening Officers to save their kids, And yet not ONE has been fired! be careful and keep your head down Officer these animals don't care about you!

I remember years ago when the front office would 'steal' your activity and post it to another officer's stats. During review when the districts would hold a round table discussion, officer's would be rated.

My Sergeant approached me and asked me to sign my activity card, which I had noticed lowered my rating by two points. When I asked why I was rated lower my Sergeant told me that I had little activity in parking tickets.

Well I save all of my parking ticket books and brought them to the Sergeants attention. At this point my Sergeant told me that it didn't matter and it was already done. I went to the watch commander and explained my situation. He immediately raised my rating three points.

Now tell me that this nonsense is still not happening?

In 2001 when I was a Sgt. in the Mass Transit VSEP, we had Eric Lee assigned to work. This was after he had been killed in the line of duty. So for three weeks when I would get the A & A sheets to read at Roll Call, Officer Lee's name was there. I called downtown and asked them to remove his name; it was uncomfortable and disrespectful to keep seeing his name knowing what had happened and having to mark him as absent. There was no space to mark killed in the line of duty. They ignored my requests, they don't care, it seems that you are just numbers and names to those who hide at headquarters, drawing paychecks as if they were police officers.Retired Sgt. Rick Aztlan

Watch these fools turn themselves inside out and break a hip trying to run away from being the parents of this ugly fucking baby!

Just as certain mints are "curiously strong" the exempt echelon of CPD is curiously fucked-up.

What a collection of sad, sore and sorry muthafuckahs...

We have more respect for an old Fifth & Kilpatrick whore washing her panties in a puddle than this coven of ass-clowns...

Miserable, mentally malnourished, looking through a key-hole with both eyes at the same time mooks... Retire already!

None of you are good for shit except being laughed at by the troops while you fools compete with each other to see who can fill the C/O book with the most idiotic, dangerous, illegal and counter-productive pronouncements in the least amount of time while hoping that when G-mac stops the music; your funky asses will be able to still find a chair.

Just some straight up dishonorable muthafuckahs who refuse to acknowledge they're way past their "sell by" date and yet they want to stay on display in spite of having turned funny colors, gotten mushy and started stinking.

How does the joke go?

They're "the boss" at work but just "the asshole" at home?

Dear Scc:

I am sitting in a restaurant right now and tears are flowing from my face. The people sitting at the table next to me got up and came over to see if I was ok. I told them yes, that I just read something that made me very sad and angry. They told me they were sorry and asked if there was anything they could do. I didn't mean to cry in public but before I was done reading the post the tears came. I thanked them but assured them I would be ok and they watched my things while I went into the bathroom to splash cold water on my face and continue on. I received more respect from 2 people I never met in my life than Officer Bailey did from any supervisor that read the information in that to/from and did nothing about it. I am disgusted with my department.

I have been on now for over 20 years. I used to try and keep a positive attitude about citizens. When they would really show their colors, I would get pisseed, then later try to remember that it's not everyone that are shits, just the shits. I really tried to do that and for the most part, I did pretty good. I kept things under control and did my best to give police service, even to the ones that I didn't believe deserved it-maybe those ones got a little less, maybe I didn't let their problems bother me, just did the report for them. The good guys got good service and maybe their little tragedies received more attention and their big tragedies, well maybe I took them home with me for awhile, maybe too long, but that was okay at that time. But when Officer Cole was treated the way he was by the citizens with savagery akin to animals on the hunt, I decided thatIi too would not ever take this job home with me ever again and the bad guys would never ever receive anything from me again, never. If that meant a cr then so be it, I can always use a few days off.

And I dealt with supervisors the same way, they are not all bad: there are good ones and the bad ones, well we have to respect those ones too. I don't have a crystal ball and don't know what is going on in others' lives, so if a boss is an idiot, well, then he's an idiot, whatever. I tried to keep everything in perspective. Not anymore. I don't know which bosses read that report, but I am going to assume that they all did, because an apology was not given already. No boss will ever get the above and beyond from me because this incident sealed that deal. Just like the savages sealed the deal for the citizens of this great city. I will probably be ashamed of myself later for feeling this way, and maybe later I will change my mind, but I doubt it.

Thank you scc for informing us of this great injustice and just poor, poor judgment on the part of everyone involved. The Bailey family and friends know how much we care and that will never change.

Now maybe the powers that be can remove the name of Officer Ricky Schott from the evaluation roster of the 009th District, because it was there the last time I looked. And for those of you that don't know, Officer Schott died in the line of duty approximtely 13 years ago in the 009th District lockup while fighting with a prisoner. If it has been removed already, which I doubt, then I apologize for this part of my post. It should have never been there in the first place. The evaluation system was out in place maybe 3 years ago-not 13.

I hate my department for making me feel this way. Over the last 8 years, they have taken every shred of respect I had for this department. I don't believe anything can be done to regain that respect that I had. That was one thing that I really admired about myself, being a Chicago Police Officer.

I went to CPD Headquarters last month to see the Honored Star Case in the lobby. I noticed several stars were not in chronological order which left me wondering how could CPD brass be so uncaring, sloppy, and nonchalant with the caretaking of a Case the rank and file consider to be sacred? So now, after having read this BS, I'm not surprised. It's consistent with what I observed in that Star Case...sloppyness, lazyness and a who gives a shit attitude. Why isn't Tracey Ladner held accountable for the good order of the Star Case? Isn't she the Director of Human Resources? Pretty insulting to those who gave all.

I'd really like to see someone in the media (paging Mr. Kass) pick this one up, and put these ignoramuses through a bit of public humiliation for implying that a deceased officer wasn't pulling his weight. Sheesh.

Also, you can't force officers to police just to get numbers it doesn't make any sense. Yeah they can at least turn in a mover or a parker or two but to force us to do this job just to build numbers is ridiculous and it will move us toward even more scrutiny and lawsuits.

It's pretty obvious that the leaders are just cranking out paper to satisfy some quota system of their own.

Just do the report.

Don't have to read it -- doesn't have to be accurate -- just put some numbers on paper so it looks like you're doing something and managing something/someone.

No wonder violent crime can be recorded as going down so many consecutive months in a row with this kind of careless and negligent reporting going on.

More importantly maybe Bailey is still on the payroll too! I wonder who's collecting his check?

What other reports and how many other deceased officers names are on them in order to obfuscate the departments statistics and metrics?

So disrespectful!

Hell... That's just one fucking golden example out of many!

And when some copper is forced to take a bare-assed slide down the splintery, 1000 foot bannister of civil litigation, these knee-walking idiots will run and hide.

Bet you a Fatman on Friday the SPAR form for Officer Bailey was already ginned up and waiting for him to come back from his "mystery days off."

Is there any way to find out who is responsible for the merit promotion of these idiots? And just what made them worthy of a merit promotion?

WTF is wrong with these people. This just tells you that the exempts HAVE NO CLUE. The name of an officer who was killed in the line of duty should be etched into your heart and head. Note- P.O. Bailey was followed to his residence by the pieces of shit and killed because he was a police officer, that is why they called it a "line of duty death".

The superintendent said before getting hired that he would make DCs responsible for officer activity is their own districts and here it is. But this was completely idiotic to have this report go through how many hands and eyes with no one catching Officer Bailey's name on the list...that was really stupid.

7/26/2011 12:00:00 PM

Either they did not notice it or they do not care. Do you really believe that Skahill, Kirby and Brown and Williams actually read the reports? I am surprised that Tobias did not catch it but his secretary is an idiot. A full duty idiot. As McCarthy strips the indies officers, the more pressure is put on the remaining white shirts and the incompetence will show. The patrol division administration is a circus.

When are they going to make changes? EB should be the first to go. He believes that officers are expendable property unless he wants to get in your pants. Make the changes so the exempt can unpucker their sphincters, set our new game plan and let's get back to doing police work!

That is great that you uncovered that SCC but did you forward that info to all the news media, the mayor, the Supt.? Just asking as this is something that needs to be made known not only to the people who read your blog. Be safe

7/26/2011 09:26:00 AM

SCC doesn't have to contact the media. They troll here daily after midnight, I'm sure. And that is borne out today by WBBM having on its afternoon news information on this exact blog post.

"That was one thing that I really admired about myself, being a Chicago Police Officer."

Sir, don't let a mismanaged department cause you to respect or admire yourself less. We respect, love and need every officer in this city and feel for officers like you given how poorly you're managed. God bless you.

I can just picture Skankhill in her office, no clue as to what an ass she really is. It's people like her that don't care, and will never admit to being wrong. It's cold hearted. In my soon to be 20 years on this job, I've never met her or almost any other exempts. I'm sure most never arrested that many people in their career. I've heard a few names, but I just can't see why any of them are needed. Nobody really cares about them. Who are they anyway and what have they done to dramatically improve our department? My supervisors know if I need to do more work. Why does this department need an Exempt, to tell a District Commander, to tell a Watch Commander, to tell a Lieutenant, to tell a Sergeant, to tell a PO, that they need to work harder, when the sergeant is on the front lines working with us most of the time anyway?

PIECE OF SHIT CHARGED IN OFFICER BAILEY'S MURDER!

So sorry the Bailey and CPD families had to wait so long but this is just the first step.

Now... Let's see if the unsolved murders of our other brothers can be solved.

The cynic in us believes they powers that be became refreshed and highly motivated to play this news forward to blunt the gathering fall out from Officer Bailey's name appearing on a CPD punishment list...

Too late... Thundering exempt incompetence should be punished as hard and disproportionately as an unclouted P.O. getting ruthlessly whacked for a minor "oops, my bad."

To 7/26/2011 09:49:00 AM,
You and I probably laughed with Ricky over beers. I still remember the call I received about him since I was RDO. I worked many nights with him inside and on the street.

Today I have truly come to the realization this department will never be the proud strong department it was. The camaraderie, the bosses and co-workers who cared about each other. The adrenaline rush and laughs afterwards. Every watch in every district worked as one, including the sergeants to the commander. We were the police and feared. You attacked one of us, God forbid the asshole didn't go to the ER. The bosses would have been screaming.

Today I have to thank our Superintendent for the Fuck You look I got. No clue why? Was just doing my job. But yet he goes and preaches to Phlegers flock. Yet he listens to the people that surround him. They are either clueless and the few who are not are ballesss.

Today is the day I have promised myself, unless another copper needs back-up or is going to an in-progress call, the blinders are on. Fuck the savages, they can kill themselves for all I care. Unless it is a decent person and not a scumbag in trouble, I'm driving by. Fuck activity, fuck the command staff, fuck the supeintendent and the mayor. These fucking high ranking hotshots can go do the fucking job. Let these clueless pricks go out and take the lumps. Unless it's another copper, they can fuck themselves. Politics and stupidity have torn down this city and this department. Weis and Daley started the demolition with Rahm and McCarthy knocking down what is left.

If McCarthy doesn't cut the heads off these idiots, then I know he is a balless puppet who gives a fuck less about us. Garry the ball is in your court. Let's see what you are really made of.

The next time you complain that the Department should name a Department member as Superintendent, Stop and Think for a moment ! All the merit/clout babies that are in charge need a map to find their asses. Our current command staff is loaded with people that have no abilities as police officers much less as Leaders.

Exempt staff meetings should be called "assembly of assholes ".

This is embarrassing and the Bailey family should receive an apology from the Superintendent and all the signatories on that document. My mom used to say everything happens for a reason and there is no wrong that for some greater good does not occur. As bad as this error was, it has served to put P.O. Michael Bailey's memory in the forefront. Never forget Michael Bailey his contribution to CPD and the City of Chicago. Please keep him and his family in your thoughts and prayers. Stay safe brothers and sister.

From the Chicago Tribune: Offender charged in Officer Bailey's murder.

Scumbag on parole, of course, for agg batt of another PO. since hen in jail on parole violations, unrelated carjacking and weapons charges.

OK, let's start the parade of character witnesses who can tell us what a good boy the offender is.

Rest in Peace Ofc. Bailey. Damn shame you had to lose your life at the hands of such a worthless humanoid.
