Fire Captain to Surrender?

On one hand, we have this rumor:
  • The capt was notified to turn himself in. His lawyer is in negotiation with dicks for the right time, so look for it to be around 3-4 am Sunday . Low profile, and in and out of the lockup. no big hoopla.

    The victim officer and his teammates have been pushing hard for the arrest, harder then any another incidents I can remember.

    One of the guys called every Alderman in the city for help with this justice.

    All this while their C/O Buried his head in the sand and never even addressed his officers at roll call about the incident,just slipping out the back door.

Then we have this:

  • The officers from 014 who witnessed the incident were questioned by IAD last night.

    .;;...............----------------------------.-.-..-.-.-.-..-....-.-.-.

    That's because the fire capt in a attempt to save his own ass filed a CR number against the officer.
We haven't heard from any of our downtown sources yet, so keep the vitriol heavily moderated until we can get confirmation from our contacts.

I seen that they pulled another guy out of the river tonight and the first thought that came to my mind was if there would be a round two CFD captain vs CDP slap down.

Disgraceful -- like the Penn State incident is disgraceful ya know?

The Capt/Offender. was going to do the old blame the Vict. routine, but stopped. CR# dead. It was a pathetic attempt. All about Officer/Vict. being out of uniform.
Yes, CFD Capt.s will now be conducting fall uniform inspections for CPD members

And where is "I got your backs" McSup. The sound of Silence.

What an ugly situation. It could of all been avoided with a simple arrest and some bs plea deal.

And NO WE dont subscribe to F'ing over ever CFD member. Just the assholes like this one. We HAVE plenty of our own clout clowns that we would like to see vanish.

Miami Police Chief Manuel Orosa addressed more than 40 of his officers Thursday morning, telling them to halt tensions with the Florida Highway Patrol, reports the Miami Herald.

Tensions between the agencies have escalated since Trooper Donna Wall pulled over Miami Officer Fausto Lopez and detained him at gunpoint in late October for speeding in his cruiser to an off-duty job. The trooper disarmed the officer and briefly handcuffed him before issuing a citation.

On Tuesday, Miami Police Officer Thomas Vokaty pulled over a uniformed trooper on the turnpike for speeding outside of his jurisdiction. Vokaty received a "record of formal counseling" for violating department policy.

On Saturday morning, Trooper Joe Sanchez awoke to find his cruiser defaced with five gallons of human feces, reports CBS.

Heard the rumor through CFD that CFD is proceeding with disciplinary action against Altman. All CFD individuals on the scene are being required to fill out Form 2s.

I think with SCC getting this story out prevented the tiny dancer from sweeping this under the rug. The CFD member I spoke with is glad that CFD is moving forward with disciplining this asshole.

The CFD guy did explain that the CFD has zero tolerance for work place violence (which is a given) but if the violence takes place at a scene, the punishment for the offender is usually double or triple then what would have been given out if it had occurred at the fire house.

I would say this guy has lost his job and pension and his concern should now be to try to stay out of jail.

The captian has an alcohol problem and should be forced into a program. I am sure this was not the first incident he has been involved with. There are probably lots of firemen who have bad stories about this guy. I don't excuse what he did but he needs help. We have a clouted "bottle baby" who has been saved way too many times and this is the result.

I dealt with Capt Altman when he was CFD IAD (armed too)and I had to lock up a CFD FF for pulling out a gun in a bar.

Not only was he an asshole to the FF, he treated me like shit to the point where the W/C threw him out of the station.

As he was leaving, he said to the W/C "You don't know who you are fucking with, my father is the Fire Commissioner, I'll have all your asses" To which the W/C said "Go tell your daddy to call my daddy, we'll see who wins"

I never heard another word about it again.

If the cops push the Captain into the river, then this becomes a funny story for everyone to tell. Instead it just shows the pathetic scared department we are today and forever will be.

No one does anything on scene because they are afraid to get into trouble. They realize they did nothing and are ashamed. So, they demand charges allowing them to handle it from the safety of a courtroom. A courtroom where no justice has ever been dispensed.

What a punk move.

Everybody is knocking the Ferie Department for this incident. I understand he was dead wrong. But I remember watch parties and retirement parties where it was all coppers and sure enough, after the alcohol flowed coppers would start swinging. Coppers of all ranks. Doesn't excuse anything and circumstances are different, but the Captain is at fault and nobody else. Point being, Police and fire in Chicago have had a good relationship. Let's not be a bunch of assholes and blame the whole fire department of one assholes actions. We do have a few on our department who are no better than the fire captain is. Hopefully it isn't swept under the rug, but many instances on our own department are swept under the rug. We know it's all fucking clout, but every deaprtment has their share of clout baby's who fuck up big time and not a thing happens afterward. SCC has posted more than our share of people who are allowed to do whatever they please and not a damn thing happens. Just saying, what is the difference with this. If there is anybody that don't know the routine, you should open your eyes to all the bullshit that some people get away with. It has been that way for my 22 years on the job and it will stay that way long after anyone of us is retired from the job. Legit is not a word in the Chicago Political dictionary.

I will say that with what a few comments have stated, if during the G8 / NATO Summit, any copper puts any fireman in harms way should have a foot put up their fucking ass. Every time either department loses someone on the job, the other department is right there for us. As far as the comment about CFD during the strike, do you realize how long ago that was. If you still have resent after all these years, then you are the one with the problem. Let shit go. The relationship police and fire have now is one of brotherhood and respect for each other. When either is at their lowest, we are there for each other. That's the way it should be. None of us on either department have a job that is safe. We all go to work not knowing if we are coming home.

November 16th 1999 Chicago Tribune Article.

"The younger Altman, previously head of internal investigations in the department, has charged that he told his father of the tape in mid-1997, months before it became public, suggesting that the senior Altman failed to take immediate disciplinary action.

The outgoing commissioner on Monday asserted that his son informed him of the video in November of 1997.

"If he in some way feels I knew about the tape, he is mistaken," the senior Altman said. "That is not true."

Altman acknowledged that the episode has produced a "family tragedy." "But there isn't anything I can do about it," he said.

As the Rahmster and McPuppet have been "putting more police on the street" they have been putting less police on the streets in the white hoods.

Less police in the white hoods means less white hoods arrested.

Less white burglars, less white junkies, less white thieves, less white offenders of every type are being locked up. Would it be a comfort to Ms. Periwinlke there was probably just as many white victims as ever?

Cops helped to get him elected, and he is probably embarassed by Altman if he knows him.

There is a lot of common ground that connect the jobs.

Going to criminal charges in this matter, and I only know what I have read here, I fear will come back and bite us. It will justify Rahmster doing that in anything. This should have been handled like the Cozzi case should have been handled. All in house, a long costly suspension, and that's it.

As he was leaving, he said to the W/C "You don't know who you are fucking with, my father is the Fire Commissioner, I'll have all your asses" To which the W/C said "Go tell your daddy to call my daddy, we'll see who wins"

I never heard another word about it again.

Arrogant Prick, but odds are nothing will happen to him....just like when McCarthy MF'd the Palisades Parkway Police over a parking ticket.

===================================
That was a different Altman. The one you are referring to was his older brother Edward(same name as the dad). Ed Jr was never a ff. This is Mark who is a Capt, but is still a POS just like his 3 brothers that were ALL on the CFD at one time.

Just to clarify for some posters...

Mark Altman was not the son that was formerly head of CFD IAD. That was Edward Jr (IIRC). Another son, Jimmy, is retired CFD, another one, Mike, is a CFD Battalion Chief. All have something in common, besides their huge clout... their HUGE ego !!! All have had career paths that have been well greased and all have been allowed into any specialist role in CFD they have wanted. The rules, (and even the contract), apply to everyone else...not the Altmans.

Most of CFD would love to see one of them get their comeuppence !!!

And to correct some other bad info...Mark Altman came on CFD in 1990. It was the retired brother, Jimmy, who came on during the strike.

As an off duty po, I often get stopped by these marine unit guys and despite providing my credentials have my craft searched and my name contact carded. These guys are a piece of work. Hope the sup disbands them.

I call bullshit on that. I worked there for a couple years and never once did we ever write a copper or a fireman.

you get both sides to this story? Do you have any idea how many times CPD are stopped by other agencies and given breaks? Did you read the report or even talk to the officer? Then you make a anonomyous beef on the blog? Have your son go to court and and talk to the officer and get the ticket dismissed. Quit bitching about everything.

11/12/2011 08:54:00 AM
Fuck u asshole...my son had his phone in his hand when the cop made that statement ,,and i heard it. And if u are the cop then shame on u. The insurance already paid out and were surprised that he got a ticket. And it gets expensive to have to take a day off work toGO AND TALK TO THE COP WHEN IT COULD HAVE BEEN TAKEN CARE OF THERE.Again we are brothers in law and should be looking out for each other.

Let's just all play nice, okay? Barrington, sorry if one of us was an ass to you recently, which is what I'm guessing. Chicago, remember a courtesy is just that - not a requirement. We're all on the same side, so let's find a way to act like it.

Whether it's Edward P. Altman or Edward Altman III, these idiots have always been victims of their own stupidity! Why should the Captain be any different? These jagoffs have spent years throwing around a name that no one gives a fuck about as they sit on their throne and wait for their ring to be kissed and shoes to be spit shined! Bad part is yet another Altman tarnishing the Fire Department's name and worst if all, this dickhead, all be it inadvertently, has driven a rift between CFD and CPD at a time when we need to unify to avoid the Wrath of Rahm for the next three, painful years!

@the BHPD
Do you really think its a good idea, to go on a CPD blog and say you're going to write CPD family?? What do you think I'm going to do when I stop you, your wife, or kid in the city? Come on brother, we are all on the same team. Lets watch out for each other OK?
