CBS Libels the Blog

Once again, the media make a giant leap into the gutter and attribute nonexistent statements to the Second City Cop blog. First, for the CBS lawyers, a little Law 101:
  • Defamation—also called calumny, vilification, traducement, slander (for transitory statements), and libel (for written, broadcast, or otherwise published words)—is the communication of a statement that makes a claim, expressly stated or implied to be factual, that may give an individual, business, product, group, government, or nation a negative image. This can be also any disparaging statement made by one person about another, which is communicated or published. It is usually a requirement that this claim be false and that the publication is communicated to someone other than the person defamed (the claimant).

And the offending report from Mike Krauser at WBBM radio:

  • There is a suggestion on a Chicago Police officer’s Web site for how officers can avoid citizen complaints during the expected street protests when the G8 and NATO summits come to town this spring.

    As WBBM Newsradio’s Mike Krauser reports, the Second City Cop blog published a headline,, “Your new G8 best friend” above a picture of a roll of electrical tape and says, “Use as necessary,” going on to say, “It’s not for securing anything,” and “Hint – it covers things.”

    Those “things” include officers’ badges and nameplates. But an Oakland, Calif., police officer recently learned that was a bad idea when this video was shot during an Occupy demonstration

We just reviewed the post. Nowhere, and we mean NOT A SINGLE FUCKING INSTANCE, does the SCC blog advocate covering name tags with tape. In fact, in the 60-plus comments that are published in the post, not a single commentator advocates the use of tape in concealing the identity of officers. We found instances of the following:

  • people saying it's not a good idea to cover tags/badges;
  • numerous quotes about the Oakland PD incident;
  • stories of name tags and stars being ripped off as "trophies;"
  • using fake name tags that say, "McCarthy" or "Rahm;"

But try as we might, not a single instance of advocating rule breaking or disobeying general orders, Department policy or disregard for the law. As a matter of fact, we are well aware that a large portion of our readers happen to be people not on the job. For that reason, we were actually imagining the following use for tape:

And if we think back far enough in our careers, we remember during the Bulls riots seeing most of our squad cars looking like this:
Tape protects you from splintering glass. It keeps the pieces in a manageable mass in case of, oh, we don't know, bricks, bottles, and other heavy objects spontaneously falling through windshields. Not that that would happen at a peaceful event like the G-8 or NATO conferences:

Unfortunately, we can see this being the beginning of a smear campaign directed at the blog. We've made too many people uncomfortable with revelations of half-assed and inadequate training, equipment shortfalls, manpower issues, piss-poor leadership and a myriad of other things. We're still waiting for the media to look into reports that the Federal Reserve is shutting down in May in anticipation of the protests, that dozens upon dozens of merchants are closing and boarding up their stores prior to the event and other businesses are laying in Y2K-type supplies in the event they have to keep their employees in locked buildings for their own safety. We guess if the message is the problem, it's easier to follow the Liberal playbook and attack the messenger than to actually address the problems brought to light.

In the meantime, we're looking for full apology and retraction from WBBM "Newsradio" 780.

We're also interested in a legal opinion of a libel suit against CBS, WBBM Radio and Mike Krauser specifically. Our post is Exhibit A and Krauser's reporting is Exhibit B. It's pretty straightforward. It would have to be a pro-bono or contingency-based endeavor and any damages recovered we would donate to various police charities.

Actually, I thought you were suggesting taping prisoners mouths after they were arrested to keep them from spitting at the officers. Never thought about covering nameplates or stars because these are no longer worn during demonstrations, etc.

BTW don't think it was anything more than an opinion being offered and doubt that it would be considered libelous. But good luck trying!

As en ex Crowd Control Team member in the ISP, I can tell you we didn't wear nameplates and badges before a call out because:

A. They could get ripped off/lost during confrontation, or

B. They were covered up by the turtle gear.

We are not ready- They City and the Department heads have intentionally rendered the police department incapable of managing this situation. Save the money Rahm, you’ll need it to payout injured officers, equipment loss and civil litigation. Remember officers; protect yourself with force one level greater than that being applied against you. It is the law. You WILL BE required to discharge your firearm, and will be lawfully justified whenever the offender(s) are armed. Protect yourself and the officers around you. Be prepared both mentally and physically with your equipment. There will be enough cameras around to prove your application of lethal force was justified. Watch these antichrist fuckers run when two or three of them get shot by the police because of their violent attack on the life of an officer.
Look at this link. It's from the MN riots. Look how they attack the copper; hit him with sticks, etc. When he ran out of gas, he should have gone to his sidearm. Be ready boys and girls, but remember, self-preservation only!

As a retired old wagon guy ,the first thing I thought of upon seeing the duct tape was "great restraining tool in case your out of cuffs".It use to be a must in the milk crate that sat between you and your partner in the wagon.Many a "crazy mother fucker",upon the determination of their family members,and after them obtaining the required form from who God knows.We could go into the home ,tell the "crazy mother fucker" he had to go.If he objected we would just choke him out and tape up his wrists and ankles for his ride to Tinley Park or Jackson Park Hospital.Sorry,excuse my trip down memory lane,but the fun times always seem to pop up in my memory.So yes,duct tape is a good alternative tool if your cuffed out.And from what I hear of these upcoming summits on the horizon,many of you officers might find yourselves cuffed out when the shit hits the fan.So be careful and always remember that getting back home safe to your loved ones is the most important thing you can check off on

Off topic: Illinois state representative Edward Acevedo ( who will collect a police pension and a state pension worth 200 grand) has introduced legislation that would make possession of any semi auto matic firearm a felony in Illinois. If this passes you would have 90 days to turn them into police. That includes rifles, and pistols, anything that is not duty related and when you retire, your duty weapons. Guess they have not heard of the 2nd amendment or they do not care. Acevedo is again the pimp for city hall. They take care of him for sure.

That's why I always say they just don't get it. They don't have to worry, I'm not going to stop anything. They can do as they please. Its not personal. I'm not going to fight with anyone. The police department is warm and fuzzy. I like my job and I follow orders.

Yes, you made reddit, but no-- reddit isn't an 'anarchist' website. It's where the whole internet shares links. If enough people think it's cool, it ends up on the front page, and LOTS of people see it. A sufficiently inflammatory headline-- especially with any inkling of indignation over government power or injustice in general-- is big time fodder for reddit. Reddit is where the Bridgeport beat-down gang went viral, and where the recent opposition to SOPA/PIPA was organized. And like anywhere else that might have "the scoop," it's a popular source for the local news.

Look at what the leaders of this Sanctuary city are doing to it's people!

They were elected in part, and the taxpayers pay for them to provide security. This is NOT what we pay taxes for, to invite trouble!

It feels like we're waving the illegal immigrant terrorists across the border and giving them the go ahead to start some shit here.

The city leaders are inviting trouble, endangering life and property while being on some ego trip to entertain the top 1%, 7,000 dignitaries that are seen by many as being the root cause of peoples economic pain and physical hardships.

What takes place at these events is well documented and I ask who's interest is it in to invite these people here to hold their little get-together?

Not the average Chicago taxpayer that's for sure.

We have downtown merchants being told they should allow people to work at home during the summits and to be prepared to shelter in place. WTF!!!

Does everyone think the trouble is going to be only during the weeks of the summits?

Oh and today in LA the LAPD is holding joint exercises with the US military. We have military helicopters and tanks roaming across LA. The press tells us that the exercise is closed to the public and is necessary to provide training in urban warfare for an upcoming deployment.

I don't know about you but I'm not buying that last part. What city is the US going to invade that is like LA? We have never used US cities for military training. Mockups of cities were always built on military bases for training AFIK.

Then in Oakland Cal. today they have stripped the police force of it's power and are in the process of turning those duties over to the Fed's. What the hell is going on here?

However I digress.

Why Chicago taxpayers are putting up with this is beyond me. If this was an election campaign promise to invite global elites here for a party that history has proven to show nothing more than peoples safety threatened and property destroyed by it would they vote for it?

Of course the mayor has made sure he get's his way with his little sit down and shut up campaign of permits, fines and fees making up new laws that only apply to the churl class of his population so it's not like you can go out and voice your disapproval.

The mayor and his police chief are criminalizing peaceful political dissent and since when is that a crime?

All these laws and homeland security under the guise of making us safer and these summits are not making us safer. We're looking at you Ralm and your 50 political pawns. We will hold you accountable for turning this city into our worse nightmare.

First Bulls riot-- at chicago and hamlin with cline when he was tact lt in 011. Had two of the cars with totally trashed windows and one of the wagons with a bullet hole. The next time, we brought a whole bunch of duct tape to secure the windows as the officer wanted no glass in the face. I am sure this jag off thought of that.

Most officers are older and are out of shape. This comes from past studies. We haven't had any real numbers of new officers joining our ranks. We are an older out of shape force and any strenuous activity is forbidden. I'm sure everythings going as planned. Any excessive use of force will not be tolerated and the Police Board's ruling make a strong message for officers thinking other wise. Just google police boards rulings.

No worries I learned along time ago not to fight with anyone. Nothing good comes from fighting, you could get in trouble and or hurt. If they think there is going to be any real violence I hope they call somebody for that, maybe the national guard would be a better choice for this. The Chicago police might not be the best choice or resource to be used.

SCC.. FYI Andy Thayer is on Chicago Tonight on Ch 11 along with an economist from UIC and two females ...one is Rham Emanuel's chief of staff and the other is in charge of the whole G8 summit... Andy Thayer stated that he reads "Second City Cop" and made this statement on this show... He has stated how the CPD "is NOT prepared for this event as evident from what is on Second City Cop". He did state that the police will have multi million dollar lawsuits and the "CPD is known for their history of abuse as evident by the millions of dollars of lawsuits paid out every year". If you can get a copy of this show or see a rerun... Very interesting.. The two females keep saying over and over again... How Chicago is a world class city that is ready fir this and they have been ready for some time!!?? HUH??? These two nitwits cited events the CPD handle such as the annual 3rd of July fireworks and parades and that is why the CPD can handle this event!!?? HUH??? Andy Thayer was drooling after this stupid statement... The economist from UIC said there is no reason to hold this event and the $65 million could be used for schools and police officers... This guy has brains!! Even Andy Thayer stated the same thing...seriously!! The chief of staff female couldn't give a straight answer when Carol Marin asked her "how many protesters does the city expect"? All she stated is there was "ONE permit issued so far"????? Liar... Then it changed to maybe 4 permits issued... Andy Thayer was having a field day with blasting the CPD and all agreed that there will end up being several millions of money payouts for lawsuits evolving from this event... So what is the fucking point?? To elevate Rham and promote his 2016 election bid for president...period. Carol Marin also did mention this as well and no response by the females...obviously. Get ready kids.... We have ZERO training... And Andy Thayer is right...sad to say... We will be sued, we will be filmed, we will be the focus of bad press...all thanks to the utter fucking stupidity and greed of Rham Emmanuel and Barak Obama... But one last thing from all of this... We will pay for it... Guaranteed...they did say the government "may reimburse some of the cost" NOT that they ARE paying for the cost... Bend over... We are getting fucked in more ways than one... Have a great day.

Chicago Tonight tonight - Carol Marin conducts a panel discussing preparations for the upcoming NATO/G8 summit.

Panelists:

Lori Healy - currently on loan from John Buck's firm to City Hall to be the head cheerleader for this fiasco. Long time political slut/Madame, usually on the wrong side of every issue; with Patrick f***stain Ryan, she helped lead the charge for the Nolympics (thank God she wasn't successful with that fiasco, despite that the effort resulted in the loss of a lot of great Walter Gropius buildings at Michael Reese).

Felicia Davis - City Hall mouthpiece. (withholding further comment on her for now).

something Samuelson (I think) - more realistic than the women on how bad this event is likely to be, but still seemed to be on somebody's short leash.

Andy Thayer - representative of the "fringe"; a career protestor whose greatest achievements include whining on how bad the CPD treats protestors, yet it was THIS GUY who recommended the "SecondCityCop blog" to find out what was really going on around this event.

Watch the repeat if you get a chance - the segment runs about 11-12 minutes.

Instead of guessing how we are preparing ourselves, CBS should F. O. I. A. the pod cameras in 015 on Obama riot night. Every single police car had taped up windows, they still broke 7 squad car windows out, countless dents in cars from heaving bottles and rocks from a half a block away. They tipped over two civilian cars over and knocked down about every light and signage on Madison and Chicago.
F. O. I. A. the video of this in progress and work orders afterwards to repair all the damage to city property. That tape came in handy!!

Libel/slander/defamation law statutes and torts vary depending on state/country. Often the Plaintiff must prove the false nature of the broadcast word or image. In some jurisdictions the plaintiff will have to prove not only the false nature of the communication but also that actual hbarm was done to plaintiff's public standing. The biggest problem SCC will encounter is that he will have to "out" himself in court and on his complaint.

The media hates your blog because you speak the complete, unadulterated TRUTH, and frequently you shine this Light of Truth on the shameful ways of the yellow "journalists" who make up the majority of the news media in this city. You also expose wrong-doings of local politicians on your blog, thus acting as a TRUE, HONEST news journalist yourself, making the local "journalists" angry because they know that YOU are doing the job that they are simply TOO COWARDLY to do themselves!

If the local "news media" (a.k.a. lapdogs for whoever happens to be the current mayor) had perfomed their duty to the public that they falsely claim they serve, former Mayor Richard M. Daley might have already been indicted, tried, and possibly be sitting in federal prison right now...for numerous crimes and irregularities that have been documented over the years in the columns of John Kass. And now Daley's successor, Rahm Emanuel, is definitely NOT providing the citizens of Chicago with "honest services," with such antics as the rent-a-protester scandal.

Since the news media people hate your guts for your wonderful, truthful reporting, and for asking the really tough questions.... they fling false allegations against you, the Second City Cop, in a pathetic attempt to discredit you. Of course, to file a lawsuit against CBS you would have to reveal your identity, which is probably not wise.

Hey, Mike Krauser and all of you other constitutionally protected liars and fairy story tellers, which you call news, why are you guys getting your panties in a bunch?

I think all of those with street level studios should have protesters right in camera view so they can clearly get their messages across to the general public. I sure hope you are providing sidewalk spots for them, because they will be coming to visit you.

Now if they start breaking your windows, because of their excitement, don't ask us for tape. We won't have any because you seem to infer it is a bad idea for us to have.

I look forward to G8/NATO. I read the comments on many of the anarchists' blogs and chat rooms. They infer that they are going to make this a very memorable event for the city with the disruption and violence they plan. It is too bad you choose to misrepresent the only ones in this town who can protect your little cowardly asses, while you choose not to report on the destruction these groups are planning. Their plans for "disobedience" will not be very civil.

I guess you cowardly reporters don't want to report on those blogs because the plans they propose are frightening, scary and far more threatening than tape.

I like you guys even though I disagree with a lot of your attitude on the blog. I think you're honest and it's refreshing. So here's some free legal advice (though I doubt you were serious about asking):

You don't have a libel case. There is no individual who is defamed. You can't defame a blog -- has to be a person, and that person must be identified. Nobody knows who you are. Or at least not enough people know.

I also don't think you were really defamed. Assuming BBM got it wrong, then they got it wrong, but it's hard to say you've been held up to ridicule or said to have been incompetent in your job, etc. Maybe somebody could argue that saying cops in general would tape over their name tags is insulting to cops generally, but again, no individual has really been defamed.

Also "the blog" wouldn't have damages. How has this hurt you exactly? Hurt feelings? Of a blog? Of an unidentified blogger? How did this cost you money? It didn't.

There are other defenses including something known as "innocent construction" of what they published, etc.

So if you came to my office you'd have my sympathy and my thanks for all the terrific stuff you do, but I would not tell you there is no case here.

SCC, I don't always agree with the comments posted, but I do agree that your page offers a different perspective. I am not a policeman but, I was turned on your website by a policeman. I as an independent reader did not view your string with the "tape" topic as what was interprited by CBS. I think that the Chicago media has lost touch with a large segment of this city. I am an American of Spanish decent and a conservative, I belive in the American ideal and assimilation. After hearing that report by CBS I will no longer listen; it clearly illustrates the disconnect between the hard working Americans and the media. I support the CPD if only for the fact that it embraces the ideal of an honest days work for an honest days pay; and you (Cpd) earn it. No one has a front seat to the human condition like the CPD. Come election time we are behind you. Please remember there are alot of us ( Spanish conservatives) that support you.

Don't use DUCT TAPE as make do handcuffs or car window reinforcements.

Fiberglass reinforced packaging tape is much better for restraints and clear packaging tape, the kind in the big handle roll-on devices is much better for car windows.

We have all three kinds and more ready to go in our bag-of-tricks.

I use the tape to keep my squad from falling apart. I also agree about how scc suggested their are many uses for it. Like say, wrapping the riot gear around tightly to you shoes, calves, kneeds, elbows, forearms, etc to keep all this crap from falling off after all those long hours on the front lines dealing with unruley and violent protestors.

I've seen the videos, the OFFENDERS, (don't call the people with wrist rockets and fire bombs "PROTESTERS") attack media personnel. Let them attack CBS and have them scream for the police. Let the OFFENDERS surround their vehicles with the antenna masts and overturn and burn them. Let the OFFENDERS invade 630 N. McClurg Court and have everyone inside run out the back calling 9-1-1 and find out that there is no one to respond.

CBS will have a new appreciation for the CPD.

Oh, Christ, that's who she is. Another leftover Daley-era light bulb, but it still screws into a socket.

Thank God she failed at bringing in those Olympics; we'd be paying for that for the next hundred years.

I think that was her on the radio last night, shrilling, "If you want to be a world-class city, you have to act like a world-class city."

"...dozens upon dozens of merchants are closing and boarding up their stores prior to the event..."

So much for the glowing reports about how much money all of the foreign visitors are going to spend here. Hopefully they will exacerbate Emanuel's embarrassment by painting things like "WE'RE SCARED!" and "MAYOR CAN'T SAVE YOU FROM RIOT!" on the plywood, like that pre-hurricane board-up humor you see.

"...and other businesses are laying in Y2K-type supplies in the event they have to keep their employees in locked buildings for their own safety..."

Uh...emergency supplies are never a bad idea, but this concept of "lockdown-without-portfolio" is spreading. First it was the schools "locking down" at the first rumor of a rabid squirrel, and now it's private enterprise.

I'm surprised we haven't had more charges of "false imprisonment" already.

1/25/2012 11:21:00 PM

I couldn't believe her comment, "Ya wanna be a world class city, ya gotta do stuff like a world class city".

All she needed to do was crack her gum and spit, to complete the picture. World class? Really?

Ms. Healy, First, run a comb through your hair, so you can appear to be a representative of a world class city.

Then, take a media relations course, with an emphasis on public speaking.

Then say, "If you aspire to being a world class city, you must conduct yourself as a world class city." Right now, you sound like a low-class fool and I can't believe YOU are the point person for our endeavors.
(I'm grateful you are, though; I didn't want the Olympics and I sure don't want all the world-class trouble you and your bunch want to bring to our lovely city. With you as the lead person, thankfully, we don't stand much chance of bringing too many world-class activities here.)

I like my job and my family too much to give it all up for craziness. They can destroy what they may, that's what insurance us for.

Seriously... duct tape can be broken by twisting until the offender creates a rip in the fabric. That is doubtful with fiberglass reinforced packaging tape. Just be sure to have a set of BANGAGE SIZZORS in the kit for removal.
