Sarcasm and Silliness from a Windy City Cop

I agree with a previous post, FOP should stage a NO CONFIDENCE MARCH AGAINST THE MAYOR and SUPERINTENDENT at City Hall before the G8 in May. No training, no riot gear, and no outside help. These two idiots are marching us right off a cliff in May and the FOP is not fighting for its members!
Seriously!! That is so true. I can't get any answer from our beloved FOP as to what they plan on doing. Our contract says that a city planned event (G8)has to be manned by volunteers and then reverse seniority! When asked I keep getting BS about election day. REALLY! We didn't want this. So to all you 3rd Watch people that have done your time with other Chicago BS, your FOP doesn't care that people with 3 years on the job get to work the districts while we go down there AGAIN! Just saying, time to follow Cook County's lead and overthrow.
We would be much better off with the Three Stooges in charge.We laugh with the stooges we laugh at the exempt staff.
Can't blame the department on this one. Let's be honest, the department has never said what watch is going. It's only been rumors about this watch, and that watch. Not a "department man" exactly, but the truth is they have not flip flopped on this once.
Those Three Stooges would be better bosses then the Goofs we have.
Hello...Hello....Hello! LMFAO. NYPD here stay safe fellas. Thanks for the laugh.
That looks like the 4th Floor of 3510.
Still no manpower new hires, still no upgraded new trooper batons, still no expired gas filter replacement, still no gas mask, still no replacement helmet shield, still no riot shields, still no piss and shit drip helmet shield adapters, still no proper grade helmet replacement, still no information about anything that is going to take place in May.
This just in! K9 and the mounted units will be combined. The dogs are currently at the academy being trained on how to ride the horses. The officers will be reassigned to the districts because the city claims they have no money. The marine unit is being cut back to an inflatable inner tube and a canoe! Tiny dancer says his staff will only get a 11% raise if we dont all do our part in these hard times! haha
Moe, Larry cheese! Moe, Larry cheese!
Funny thing about this is that even the instructors do not know who they are training next!Ha Ha
Well WHO the fuck is on first then?All these smarter than everybody else assholes from everywhere else but Chicago are determined to use NATO/G8 to turn Chicago into the scene of possibly the most titanically tragic and avoidable mega shit-show ever witnessed in the nearly four million years of human existence.Hey, Flaming Tutu & McEgo... Do we get to say fuck you two clowns before we end up headed back to the trees on your accounts?
Debra Kirby IS smarter than anyone she has ever met. Just ask her.Current plans call for her to be out there on the front lines riding in the "Popemobile" personally directing the battle with those ne'er-do-well protesters.
This dept. would run much better with the Stooges in charge rather than what we have now!
Just when you think it CAN'T get worse! Weis started the downward spiral and McFly is just putting the nails in the coffin. The ONLY way to fix this is promote a PO to Supt-seems this is where the logic is. And to clarify-I am a supervisor who's stuck in the midst of all this BS.
I wonder how many hard charging clout baby hairgells (CBH's) (pronounced "see beeayches") will go to work in May and say "See ya later Mah, I'moff to go get my dumb ass kicked and fired"...... Because thats exactly where they many of them are headed.
The pic says it all!
Hello..This is Peggy speaking...
I got my call box key.I'll be ready to make a pull.Bells bells bellsoh for the good old days ???Right MOE ?
No equipment, no mention on how they are going to work the shifts, no manpower, no hires, no leadership, end of a contract, and eyes of world watching. We're screwed. Lets all try to make it through the summits without any injuries and lets all go home safe.
Gear: in the Army we often buy our own for deployments. So you end up shucking out 1-2K easy.Doesn't include firearms.
Hey "they never said": the order came out and was rescinded two days later. Way to pay attention! This department is only a shadow of it's former self. I am so ashamed of what this department has become. We are a joke! I only pray for none of us to get hurt from the "bosses" ineptitude.

Cute, but the stooges were comedic geniuses and truly legendary to this day. Any comparison between them and the idiots we have in command is a real insult to the stooges and that comedic genre. Nyuk, Nyuk.
I voted for experience but all these other officers wanted a fresh face. Well your getting your fresh face. Were going to get screwed for g8 and screwed again during contract necotiations.
No need to worry or train. I heard that a huge portable screen will be set up with a gazillion watt bulb projector on Michigan Ave. During the protests, will get info and live training from a PowerPoint presentation. Sort of like when Superman's Father,Jor-EL,spoke to him.Oh...I also heard we can no longer say or think, "protester" or "riot". We'll now say, "Stationary,Occupational participant(s)" and "non-standard revelling"
Yeah, but at least the crimes are not called homicides and aggravated battery's any more! That helps!
wooooob woob woob woob woob!! nuyk nuyk nuyk nuyk!!!!!
Save the children Rahm... Oh wait..9:15 PM? The Revenue-Oh-Rahma generating speed trap cameras are not going to be set to run that late right? I remember one alderman calling for them to be turned off after 5 pm. What Chicago needs to do is fine these kids that are getting run down like the schools are doing for untied shoe laces and so forth right Mayor? Fine them even if it cost the parents their kids lunch money for a week. They all need to by disciplined not to question authority. Just pay their taxes, fines and fees so the corporations can have more tax breaks and the banks can buy the nations justice system.Yeah. political propaganda. Do we know if the driver was even speeding?====================Police are searching for the driver of a van that struck and killed a 15-year-old girl as she crossed a busy intersection in the Gresham neighborhood on the South Side, officials said.The accident happened around 9:15 p.m. Tuesday at the intersection of 80th Street and Ashland Avenue, according to Gresham District Police Capt. Juan Morado.
heh...from the Springfield Tower of Babble.. The Governor is in La-la land.-------------"Quinn says sales tax windfall could pay for schools""Asked about the situation Tuesday, Quinn said he believed the money could be found within the already strapped budget because sales tax revenues are up. From July through December, Illinois brought in $4.312 billion in sales tax revenue — $239.1 million more than the same period the year before and $139.8 million more than initially projected, according to the Department of Revenue' (via Chicago Tribune)--------------------------Yeah..pay no attention to those January 2012 sales tax numbers though.Here's the problem and what the Chicago Tribune and other corporate run media outlets are telling you or not telling you.Durable good orders fell 4% in January and that just about wipes out the up-trend Quinn is referencing.That January fall in the durables goods order numbers is a consequence of people pulling forward demand through the entirety of 2011 as the Federal Government permitted 100% expensing last year for capital goods.Notice how the governor carefully chooses the last six months of last year as emphasis -- a time where if a business wanted to buy equipment you do it now to get the tax break.So with the tax incentive gone this year and with Chicago area gasoline prices hitting the $4.05/gallon mark today, they want the public to believe that there is going to be a tax windfall! Where's the money going to come from?Yeah right.. I'm not buying it. If you buy that "look over here and don't look over there" statistical bull I have some CompStat crime stats to sell you showing crime is down.
After the riots in the early 70's the department purchased the long riot batons. In Task Force we were trained with them at the armory. The city even purchased 3 special trailers to deliver them to the scenes. Now 41 years later and retired, I have never saw the the batons again. If ever they should be utilized its now, you need them. Be careful officers, somethings just aren't worth it.
gary , al and b
Is this a picture of a CompStat meeting or what Gov. Potatohead, Mayor 9.5 and Supt. McPourmeanotherone will look like during the G8/NATO riots?Just 'axin.
Moe! Larry! Cheese!!!!!
For those who don't know, masks ARE in. You just have to not be lazy and go and pick it up after filling out the medical form. Same with replacement filters.They did just change the form to some eight page BS. I filled it out, got cleared and picked up mask. They have the replacement filters there too for those who have expired stuff. Don't wait for FOP or someone to do this for you. Go and get it done yourself. You might need it in a couple of months. You'll get sent out there with or without a mask.
Txt received stating that marching against Mayor and Sup is a bad idea cause we are entering contract negoiations...I say any actions are a mute. WHY? The city already knows what contract is going to be offered to the FOP, and rammed down our throats. I personally am just hoping for a revenue neutral contract at best.
Moe is their leader.Homer Simpson.
nuck nuck nuck nuck nuck...........sertanileeee I can lead the troops. Now point out them nato's and gee eights we'll murdur em......
Where is Shemp aka Mcjersey?
this is what you get when you let civilians run what was the best police dept. in the nation. no experience yet they wont us to listen to them.
I am tired of the cry baby coppers on this blog crying about the upcoming "events". This will pass like everything else. You going to hide from this just like every other thing on this job? The world will not end. Nothing we do is according to plan. The job is always changing. Even if they give us training, it will be from inexperienced trainers (usually District do-nothings). All we do is show up, respond to the issue and ALWAYS come out on top. Make all the comments you want. The 20%'ers will continue to do the job, while the 80%'ers do nothing. Im not a "company man". Just a guy who took this job, knew the risks, and I accept them.The Mayor is 100% wrong and using this "opportunity" in the hopes to advance himself. He doesn't care about the City of Chicago. He definitely doesn't care about the taxpaying citizens, business owners, CPD or CFD. I just hope the blind voters remember this next election. I hope his political career is over after the upcoming damage is done. But, everyone knows that every election is fixed. Im on a roll voting for the losers. Maybe I'll try voting for the ones I dont want to see elected next time...
What a fitting tribute. Look for the spring release of the Three Stooges movie 2012! The trailer is on Youtube.
Where is my mask and filter they promised me? So I got 1 day of training and I'm ready for anything, not!
Lori Healy looks a bit frazzled on tv lately. Lady, you don't even know what you stepped into. I know details of security can't be revealed too soon. But can't some type of gear be issued, besides gas masks, so we can adjust things if needed? I already know this will be a "let's just see how things are and go from there" event. We already know there will be injuries. In my opinion, that's a failed mission.I will be there to protect my fellow officers. I just wish I was told more, so I can be, a little bit, better prepared.
you're ALL to blame for never putting your foot down, when Daley made ALL thee phoney political Supervisor appointments based on Clout/Merit. no you have to work for a bunch of Nincomepoops.
Uh, it's not called "headquaters" (sic) anymore. It's the Chicago Public Safety Building. I'm gonna puke.
WE have No Leadership, if these goofs Downtown wearing Gold Stars knew just a little bit, I wouldn'T mind it, but they don't. So, how are they going to lead us into battle, so many of these bosses will fold under pressure, worrying about getting sued and losing thier FUBU jeans and shirts. I sure hope they don't tell me what to do, cause I will laugh, Hey, I'm going in the fall, what can they do to me, send me to the southside to work, yeah right.
All boresighted in, guys and girls.Some of us will be there watching your backs. We will also have our own cameras to show what they do to you, and what the liberal media will not show.
Yes I agree. But boy oh boy, are they ever fun to watch!
Chicago Action Medics are offering street medic training March 9-11. They are on the 3900 block of West Fullerton. The price for the three days of training is $0 to $100 for the three days. Those three days fall between my RDO's. How do you think they would react if 50 coppers signed up for training?
Thank you to the old retired guy I hope someone is watching out for us and video taping. We should sue the leaders of this thing and turn the tables on them.counter sue.
Let's all do the curly shuffle
I personally am just hoping for a revenue neutral contract at best.2/29/2012 11:14:00 AMwith union members like yourself, it's a wonder that we don't have to pay for the privilege of working.
Bet a paycheck that USAG Holder and his henchmen at DOJ will have direct surveillance camera uplink from Washington D.C. to downtown Chicago. Remember, DOJ is on a Police head-hunting expedition and their panties are puffed with anticipation over the possibility of jack-potting many a Chicago Copper for the eventual monumental class action civil rights beef.

It isn't just G8/NATO, the department is going through a major reorganization, closing districts, merging districts, transferring police officers, supervisors, and all of it at breakneck speed with no regard for the individuals being transferred all over the city. And oh yeah, do your best to show the world how great a city is come May.I've never seen Patrol administration so poorly run in the my career. (26 years) Things are a mess. Not just a normal mess either but an ungodly terrific great big giant mess.Go get 'em McCarthy. We most definitely do NOT have your back.
If the Media is indeed watching the blog!Go find 20 Officers and ask them off the record about G8 training and do they have the equipment to combat the situation.No Camera's, just a street interview of police.RESPONSE:No gas masks, no equipment, basic terrible training, no shields, outdated equipment, no plans, no info. BASIC 1970 POLICEING IN 2012.ABSOLUTELY RIDICULOUS IN 2012!
anyone wonder....why in the hell are we going through district and detective area closings....now?.....what exactly is the point, and what is to be accomplished?....and by the way, if it is said..."that's the way New York did it"....GFY
I,personally,would feel better if Moe was in charge.

it's a wonder that we don't have to pay for the privilege of working.2/29/2012 06:20:00 PMwait for it, wait for it...
at least the 3 stooges stuck together and backed each other up--- I truly believe that my life will be extended by 5 years from all the laughing I did while watching the 3 stooges--- I just saw the transfer order for the dicks and a lot of these guys took it hard and dry--- driving 50 miles a day while paying 4.50 for a gallon of gas is not to desirable...
Don't bad mouth Shear, he's an old Traffic guy, made Lots of $$$$ there, knows where the skeletons are buried....
Where is my mask and filter they promised me? So I got 1 day of training and I'm ready for anything, not!2/29/2012 12:02:00 PMStop being lazy and go down to Near North and pick it up. They're not going to deliver it to your house you bum. I got mine and had the fit test done in lest than twenty minutes. You must just like to bitch and have people do things for you.
Don't include Hemmerling with the others. I had a serious IOD injury and she couldn't have been more helpful. She was approachable, asked if I had any questions and said if there were any problems to contact her. She couldn't have done more.
OT re Carol Stream -There are tons of Section 8 and gang members there. Live in Glendale Heights, same is true here, but not Wheaton. They're all rich, lots of college students, churches, lawyers, and politicians. Wheaton doesn't have apartment/townhouse/condo farms. Lived in Rogers Park a long time, still appreciate all you, SCC, CPD and CFD do.
I`m willing to come out of retirement and get in the skirmish line with you guys. All I require is a short two hour nap between 1pm and 3pm. Then I`ll kick some ass just like in 1968.
