Why is This Guy Employed?

  • A 20-year Chicago Fire Department veteran allegedly pushed his nemesis and then grabbed the young man’s arm so his son could repeatedly pummel the man’s face, prosecutors alleged Tuesday.

    Then, Eduardo Castro Sr., 48, and his namesake son continued punching and kicking the 20-year-old man, who only moments before was pushing a stroller with a friend’s baby inside, prosecutors said.

    Saturday’s beating stemmed from an ongoing feud between the victim and Castro’s son, according to attorney, Richard Friedman, who is representing both Castros.

Regardless of the history, a dozen arrests? And still employed by the city? No one saw what a loose cannon this guy was, is and will continue to be? Who is this guy's whack? Because they really deserve a public slap for covering up for this idiot for 20 years.

He's stii employed because hes a firefighter and they are never held accountable for their actions.

Further proof it's not a felony for a firefighter to strike a police officer.

What clout? Why? What the fuck is it with these assholes that someone protects them or moves them up the ranks? This guy is useless. What could he do for anybody that they would even WANT to help him or risk being associated with this asshole? And his son looks like an inbred Mexican hillbilly with his no teeth, teardrop and Moe Howard haircut.

Someone explain this to me, because I just don't get it.

Anyone know how the issue of those individuals who were assigned to the fire prevention bureau got resolved?

I refer to the ones who were padding their mileage expenses?

At least restitution, I hope. I know their union was ready to back them

Theyre lucky Im not the Mayor

Theyd either gladly pay the city back and then cheerfully sign for a 60 day suspension

Or Id go after them criminally for felony theft and official misconduct. Which means no pension if convicted.

They need to energize their IAD over there

Don't firefighters get paid enough to buy a jacket so that they don't have to strong arm rob some guy of one? Is this guy back to work? I wouldn't want him working next to me, trusting my life with this fool, and I'd be glad to tell it to him! Sickening. Try robbing me, you wouldn't ever be able to do it again!

I did a search warant on storage/tow yard several years back and we recovered tons of illegal fireworks. Was told they belonged to the fireman who owned the lot and lived next door to it--pretty sure it was this guy. Bomb and arson had to come and remove them all. Supposedly he always did a huge 4th of July fireworks show there. 99% sure it was this jag. Nice.

He did in fact beat a murder, with the aid of his wife tampering/hiding evidence. Shot the kid in he back.

Talked to kings from the area, every time his kid would get into a fight or start some shit , this fire fighter would be right there diving in. Always not far from the kid.

On his days off, he is seen just driving around the neighborhood hanging out like a banging piece of garbage.

He is no good, if he has clout, sunlight is the best disinfectant, and we need to keep him in it. Wether he is getting favors or paying some one off.

Many years ago I was involved in an investigation of the head of the Fire Dept's IAD office. With the help of the ATF and FBI we were able to make a case for arson. He was sent to Federal Prison for four years. He was a Fire Dept. captain. Soon after that Mayor Byrne appointed a Youth Officer as head of the Fire Dept. IAD. This guy uncovered an incredible amount of cases of firemen/criminals.

Retired and loving it.

This has already been said at least twice but, the word is FIREFIGHTER!!! The clowns on the CFD can do no wrong. I'd be willing to bet that 20% of the CFD has been arrested since being hired.

I have arrested three firefighters since becoming CPD (battery to PO twice and one of those was a male CFD hitting a female CPD). The arrests were all investigated by whatever CFD calls their IAD. The only guy who was suspended was the male CFD who beat up a female CPD. The guy didn't even care. He bragged how he wouldn't be fired. He wasn't. Felony charges were sought and denied. I can't count how many times I've let CFD go after a traffic stop. I have talked dozens of victims (some I'm sure were lying) out of signing complaints against a member of CFD.

Every CPD reading this blog should think how many times they have responded to assist an ambulance or engine call and come on scene to find the offender bleeding in multiple places (I have no problem with that style of policing or firefighting). The nitwits on CFD ask can you take this guy now? The biggest dumb asses on CPD know you can't do that these days.

The CFD is the last bastion of total idiots in the city making a decent wage. Yes there are tons of decent guys on CFD but dumb is most of their middle names.

Why is he still employed? For one, he is not a police officer, but a firefighter. Two, it seems he has not been convicted of any felonies. If you read what the defense attorney is saying, this is not a robbery, but a personal dispute that got physical. I do not support this guy and hate to see him with a city job, but I really do not think they can fire a union employee under these conditions.

Castro is no doubt a loose cannon and a POS. I encountered him a number of times along the way and have worked with him. He's definitely not wound tight. The "murder" thing in 2006 is true - it was swept under the rug. His clout is deep and wide and it's WAY beyond him being CFD. For the boys and girls out there who aren't familiar with Bridgeport, things that would get you locked up or incarcerated in most areas in the city won't there. I've worked there and lived there. It's a different world. NOBODY sees or hears anything UNLESS you're messing with everyone on the block. And in that case, you get dealt with and usually by people in the neighborhood. CPD and CFD don't get called there (or in Canaryville) very much unless they REALLY want you there. Unfortunately for the majority of us who go to work and try our best to just do our job, he's wearing the uniform that most of worked VERY hard to get and tarnishes it repeatedly. He should be fired. His carte blanche has very little to do with being CFD - it's way beyond that...........

Why is this guy employed?

Because the people that want accountability for the elected leaders actions of this city and this government are harassed with city ordinance b.s., arrested and fined by the mayors royal Praetorian guard is my guess.

I mean that's where it starts.

Then the "professional courtesy" clout sh!t trickles on down to all of us.

That's why!

Careers and the money are more important than honor and morality and more important than doing what we all know is right.

We hide it all and seek emotional comfort and validation for our poor decisions by creating excuses for ourselves that: "we are just doing our jobs."

Well...you know what?

The history books are filled with people on the side of evil that would tell you that they were "just doing their jobs".

Do you think that members of Al Qaeda might tell themselves that line. How about Hitler's stormtroopers?

Just keep telling yourself over and over again in a cult-like manner "we are just doing our jobs" it'll probably work until the city is done using you and you no longer are preoccupied with the day to day b.s. of this job.

Eventually though you'll have time to think about how all the actions and choices that you have made over your lifetime effects everyone else's life and the consequences..

Why does a CFD captain get to slap down a CPD officer and get away with it without immediate termination and felony charges?

The entire department looks the other way, minds there own business so their "careers" don't get hurt. That's why. Where's the so-called brotherhood of right against evil doers?

Why's that guy still employed?

Look in the mirror boys it's because we tolerate it, excuse it with a "professional courtesy" and walk on or don't get involved. We tell ourselves "we're just doing our jobs"...but is it the right thing to do?

I think that the answer is no and we know it.

Because if we know that we are all doing the right thing some of us wouldn't be pushing the blame onto someone else by using the: "we're just doing our jobs" line.

It's a tough choice between putting food on the table and doing what's right ya know?

So we are all in a trick bag.

The city will take your pension, cut your jobs and your pay and we will all will do what we are told..unless and until the brotherhood unites and finds strength in it's numbers.

Just ask yourself is this what we want to turn over to our kids someday...this mess..this " i was just doing my job" b.s.

Think.

We have the power to create something better.

Last night I (CFD member) attended a benefit for a CPD member at FOP lodge who got fired and the one thing that stuck out is WHERE WERE CPD MEMBERS??? 25 CFD members were there. The comment was made several times that if it was a CFD member it would’ve been shoulder to shoulder in there. You guys could take some lessons from us on how to stick together. Very unfortunate that this guy will probably lose his house for your lack of support.
BTW most CFD members hope this guy gets fired and goes to jail.

Anyway they were both in full "show off" work clothes with the fire uniform exposed, both separate ends of counter buying shit saying "what this what about that the guys in the FIREHOUSE will get a kick out of it and enjoy it." Then the girls ring them up and 1 goof asks "don't we get a fire discount," the girl replies I make minimum wage,if I call you to my home and need an ambulance do I get a discount? He turned all red paid the bill walked out! There were others in the store comments like "What an asshole," "he makes over $80,000 a year for a part time job," etc...

The above mentioned CFD members that did that are a bunch of tools. The clerk is right and so is the CPD guy (gal?) that wrote this. I CAN'T stand when guys wear their stuff off duty, at the gym, going to the store, at parties, in the bar, etc. MOST guys who do stuff like that are a bunch of hand jobs and/or posers. Most guys that work in busy areas don't even like to wear their uniforms to and from the firehouse because of obvious reasons let alone flaunt it off duty. Again, it's the little dog barking loud syndrome (look at me, I'm CFD) and greed. I have had people (civilians) tell me I should ask for a "FF discount" when going to different places and my argument is a) I get paid enough and probably a LOT more than the clerk I'd be asking the discount from (so I'd look like a greedy jerk) and B)Being a FF is no different than the guy that is a plumber, doctor, garbage man, etc. I put my pants on the same way as anybody else. I don't DESERVE special treatment for my career. I've been granted a job that most guys would give their left testicle for....I think that's more than enough. I'm no better or worse than anyone else
