Poor Use of Manpower

  • Sneed hears the Chicago Police Department, which is battling a recent rise in homicides and violent crime, has new marching orders this weekend.

    Provide security for a private wedding!!!!!

    How about them apples!

    In the midst of a recent homicide spike and prediction of a weekend weather scorcher, Sneed is told somewhere between 100 to 200 police officers will be dispatched to help “secure the perimeter” of a high-profile wedding in Kenwood.

And she stumbles upon at least one high profile misrepresentation:

  • “The cops will be pulled from all districts in the city,” said a source. “Overtime will not be involved.”

Really? We must have misread that announcement in the CO Book that specifically said "time-and-one-half" for the Presidential Detail. That must not include the District draw that is sending at least one cop from every district to do traffic control in the area of the wedding. Just a wee bit of shading to the truth here.

And speaking of OT, the Overtime Initiative that began this weekend only managed to get 40 volunteers for 120 spots. That resulted in at least one south side tactical team getting it's days off canceled for the expected weekend upsurge in violence.

So we've got the Humboldt Park fest, Obama in town, 90-plus degree days on tap and Rahm has left town. You can almost hear the fingers being crossed at City Hall and HQ.

Only 40 LOL! "I Love it when a plan comes together!" Bottom line hire more coppers we need HELP SOS! Hey Rahm you scurried out of the country real quick because you were not invited to wedding wonder why? maybe you could call your old pal barry obama and get some needed funds to hire 2,000+ more coppers for "The killing fields!" Bush protected Crawford Texas when he was President what say you about how this city is being treated??

hey, what about Lt. darlin in sneeds column from gangs??? he grabbed a guy with a gun and squeezed the guy to find out he was one of the top 5 people wanted in the united states for a double homicide in new york among other crimes in the U.S. He grabbed him with a gun then figured this whole thing out on his own to get this guy charged. Good job Randy. Way to show the guys in GEU how to get things done old school style.. good ole fashn police work LT.

Of course it's time-and-a-half for the president. Spare no expense even if the city is going bankrupt and can't pay it's bills on time. Just take the money out of some pension funds that's all you do.

The churls are unwilling or unable to follow the money trail for more than one hop. They'll never know right?

Where's the city getting all this money to dish out overtime now? Someone's gotta be getting stiffed right? Maybe they'll skip our pension payment again as you know the money is not going to come out of their pockets or pet projects.

The taxpayers should not be paying for security for the Humboldt park fest. Private companies should pay for it.

Rahms if your reading this.. this is something that needs to be cut from the budget.

I live in the northwest side and I am not puerto rican. Why am I paying for the dam fest?

This time, I'd say the luck-factor has run out.
Expect fallout.

Two hundred police officers for a society wedding, at no charge to the wedding participants. Yet, the Humboldt Park fest, longest and biggest and most volatile in the city has its manpower allotment dramatically slashed.

Expect the worst.

Speaking of poor use of manpower I am gonna get on my soapbox for a minute. The other day I'm driving home after work. I live in 016 near Hiawatha Park. Lately the little punk kids hanging out have become worse and worse. In the evening they are all hanging out in the street being loud and blocking traffic to talk to there friends who are passing by in cars. then in the morning there are the bags of fast food garbage thrown all over. On more than one occasion residents have called police (and 99% of the time the officers working in 016 do a great job showing up for this bullshit and getting rid of the punks) however on this day I see one fool pull a couple m80's out of his backpack and light them off so I decided, fuck this, and I call 911. I give a complete description of the kid w/ the fireworks. 1631 shows up. She is working 99. She pulls up and sits in her car.....and sits.....and sits....and sits. So I figure (hope) she is waiting for another car to show up for backup....NOPE. After sitting there for 5 minutes she rolls down her drivers window and pulls up to me (I waited after I called to see if they grabbed the kid and to make sure he was still there when the police arrived) Now FYI I am sitting in my car.... parked legally... She says "what are you doing?" kinda surprised I say "what?" she repeats the question "what are you doing?"....I say "ummm waiting for my daughter, she has a softball game here in a little bit." She says "oh, ok"...and drives away.
I say out loud in my car to myself...ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME? DID THAT REALLY JUST HAPPEN? I go to my house completely pissed off. This lazy POS couldn't get out of her car and do one iota of police work. Even if she would have gotten out of her car and walked over to me and questioned me I would have felt a little better. Even though I'm 35+ yoa and the call was for kids w/ fireworks. Maybe she would have seen the fucking AR15 sitting in the case on the passenger seat next to me, or my duty belt which I still had on. That said I would really like to reiterate that there are good coppers working in 016 running their asses all over the fucking district because 1. The ghetto gets all the manpower and 2. BECAUSE OF LAZY FUCKS LIKE THIS THAT ARE HIDING FROM ACTUALLY DOING POLICE WORK FOR PEOPLE WHO CARE ABOUT WHERE THEY LIVE WHICH MAKES THE WORKLOAD TWICE AS BAD FOR HER FELLOW OFFICERS.
(whew....deep breath)
which brings me to the question I have for my fellow officers who read your blog SCC....
What do I do?
Should I have asked for a supervisor?
Should I chalk it up and say oh well what good will it do anyway?
And before anyone says "be the police and handle it yourself" I say, I have and from now on I am calling 911. Maybe if enough people call for the bullshit then this fucking city will see 016 needs more officers.
And finally thank you to the 16th dist officers that care about the ones that live here and put up with the bullshit calls.

This is obama's way of showing the country and the rest of the world, hes not worried about his adoptive city. See world, im in the hood, in chicago. Private wedding, that no one gives a shit about, gets more police coverage then 016, 013, 022, 017, etc. Ever wonder why the first lady's pet project is fat kids instead on focusing on kids killing kids. Which in her case, would have been more appropiate , since she comes from a city where 6 year olds get shot and killed sitting on the front porch. Monied black folks are just as bad as monied white folks, clueless entitled fucks that feel the taxpayer should feel privilged in footing their bills, for private events and personal security. CPD and the city should be reimbursed for providing private security. Burke, daley, neely, jarette, cpd pension mismanager, a.davis, etc. should all have to pay or hire a private security firm. Taxpayers are tired of the bs already, we want those coppers in our neighborhoods protecting our families.

There were at least 6 different tact teams that arrived at roll call at 1800 hours and learned that their coveted Saturday RDO was cancelled. That's fucked up this department lets people know they got their day off is cancelled the day before. Oh yeah, order states no cargo pants or baseball caps. Only 80/20's and crown cap .

Sneed may also hear that a many police officers were denied the day off this weekend & unable to attend family weddings and other events. On the flip side the city is unable to hire police officers because the economy sucks because of piss poor politcal leadership and the officers that are being denied their days off are protecting the ultimate piss poor political hack at a private family wedding.

Now that we have a new Emperor; we can ask questions that should have been asked before. Daley appeased the Puerto Ricans by putting dozens of police free of charge to their ethnic fest. Remember, Puerto Rico is not even a country, it is actually part of the U.S.. This practice of deploying officers to P.R. Fest should be paid by the P.R. Parade Committee which makes big bucks squeezing their vendors. So why are we continuing this practice? Burke's bodyquards, Daley's bodyguards and now this. The two hacks are millionaires and the Fest makes a substantial profit so why are WE still paying for this?

Come back to the watch!

What? Working the watch isn't as cool as working tact? Well, grant it, you can't all put your hands on a 1 bagger and then skip out early if you are on the watch BUT the chances of you getting your RDO's cancelled are a lot less.

Does the city provide security for the festival (can't remember name) that is held up by NW Hwy? Didn't think so--why not?

The city providing security is a tacit admission that the events they provide security for are powder kegs with a lot of violence. So if the city provides security because they're violent, why have them?

If the SS Irish parade was cancelled, why not cancel Puerto Rican Fest as well as the gay pride parade???? That thing should have been cancelled YEARS ago! Lewd, very lewd, conduct on display, drinking, pissing, and fighting in public?

Could it be the SS Irish parade was cancelled because opposing the cancellation didn't mean squat in garnering votes? Maybe because we white people don't vote?????

I try and do my best for "our" guys but sometimes its tough and with man power issues and I assume she's not going to call for an "assist" with kids with "fireworks" - its "usually" a code job, now if you want to go and get the little jagoff be ready to lock the kid up because once I put my hands on someone (especially a kid) its probably going to end up being "go" time in this day and age and then I'll probably be calling his "cop" mom and dad and they"ll be mad that I'm locking up bullshit and not really doing police work like "we" do in our "fast" district- my point is sometimes coppers are damn if they do and damn if they dont- some would also say YOUR the police go out and grab the kid like I've done off duty and call for a car(tact bteams in those districts are always looking for a head - hope this helps

Here's your answer:
I too work (and live) in 016. As a matter of fact I'm a supervisor in 016. We CONSTANTLY are getting calls at Hiawatha, Dever School,Shabbonah Park etc of "Gang Disturbance", "Gang Fight", "teens doing drugs" "teens drinking" "teens swearing" and my favorite "teens playing basketball in the alley" and now closer to the 4th of July "Teens blowing off fireworks" and of course my other favorite "teens hanging out in the park". REALLY??? Are you
F-ING kidding me??? Then you bitch because the animal is getting off the blue line and stealing everything that isn't nailed down. Or knocking some woman over to take her purse.
Bottom line is these kids are not "Gangbangers" most go to our local CATHOLIC schools and are decent students. Most come from families of city workers. A lot of them have cars BECAUSE they are good kids and their parents buy them a car. Most have never been arrested, have good grades, drive their cars, talk loud, play loud music and occasionally leave garbage on the ground. They are NOT wearing gang colors. They are NOT shooting guns. They are NOT spray painting the garages. They are NOT "mobbing up" and knocking people off their bikes. They are NOT "apple picking". They are NOT selling drugs. They are NOT destroying park property.
What I'm getting as is this, these kids are out there because thats what teenage kids do. They are constantly getting shagged just to appease people like you and so you don't keep calling back. The kids move on to Dever or Shabbonah or the woods (then have to deal with the tree police) and wherever they land there is someone like you overreacting and calling 911. Then we come, they leave, they land somewhere else and we wait for the next concerned neighbor to call again. Is that the best use of our VERY limited resources in 016?? I don't think so either. We cover 34 square miles and usually have 12 beat cars (we have 12 beats) a park car, and maybe 2-3 tact cars.
Not that we don't take your concerns seriously but let me just give you a quick 411 on something else that's heating up in 016. Chopin Park! There is a serious conflict (guns, gangs, shootings) going on there between the LK's and the LBO. Actual people being shot, murdered, latin Kings from all over the city trying to make Chopin Park "theirs". They are hanging out deep, tagging the park and garages, shooting off guns, intimidating families that used to use the park. Do you see what I'm getting at? Chopin Park is not being taken over by Catholic School A-B students trying to impress each other with whose parents bought them the nicer car. THOSE are the real deal over there.
I hope I was able to shed a little light on why we don't put a lot of effort into "dismantling" this "gang" of thugs that hang at Hiawatha Park. They are (for the most part) good kids. Are they slobs? Probably. Are they loud? Probably. Are they shooting off fireworks? Probably do they play loud music? Block streets with their cars? Horseplay? Play grab ass with the girls? Guilty on all charges. But then again, think back..(and before you say you didn't) WE DID THE SAME THING. (only WE had junkier cars because we weren't spoiled like they are)
You say you were there to pick up your daughter from softball. Remember this conversation in a few years when she gets a little older and tells you "dad the cops keep stopping me and my friends by the park and all were doing is hanging out having fun like kids should be doing, what are we suppose to do sit in the hot house playing video games". Then remember that "dogass" on 1631 who had the common sense to know the difference between GANGS like the ones taking over Chopin Park and KIDS (like ours) who are just doing what KIDS do.

Stay safe

I guess it might be misinterpreted if I used the expression "pigs fly" so I won't, but can you imagine my reaction when I saw on the front page of today's Chicago Tribune the following: "...further unprovoked attacks by droves of youths along the Michigan Avenue corridor."

You, SCC, get much of the credit for your persistent publication of the facts others were hoping could be ignored. Though maybe the Tribune was just waiting for a team of editors to go through the dictionary and find a good word to use. Droves! That's it! Good thing they found the right word at D and didn't have to go all the way to S for swarm.

"On the flip side the city is unable to hire police officers because the economy sucks because of...poor politcal leadership..."

It struck me the other day what the real reason is the city won't hire more cops. Based on this blog, it's apparent that police officers are not as likely to cast their votes blindly for the status quo. In other words, you tend to be a hotbed of recognition of reality vs. the politically correct version of what goes on out there in terms of social pathology vs. healthy constructive lives and where the govt belongs in all of it.

Of course I'm not suggesting you stop being who you are and doing what you're doing! I'm just saying there are still some hurdles to get over before we get back on the right path.

***********************
After your whole diatribe about these punks you end it by saying "if enough people call for bullshit..." meaning even YOU know this was a bullshit call that you are getting your 5.11's in a bunch for.
Call when you see sh@tbirds going door to door selling subscriptions.
Call when you see cars with 26" chrome rims thumping down your street.
Call when you see dude walking down your street talking on his cell phone looking into your gangways
Call when you see groups in the park that you have never seen before. (not the ones you see every day)
Call when the construction van is prowling around the alleys
Call when you see someone loading a flat screen into the trunk of a car in the alley.
Increasing call volume for "bullshit" calls will not get more police assigned to 016. We are under 200 for the district and no relief in sight. It's a double edged argument to get more police we need more violent crime. I live in 016 also. Do I really want to get more officers in exchange for increased shootings? Not me. If the worst thing we have to deal with at Hiawatha Park is littering, loud music and fireworks, I'll take that anyday "Officer".

Q:Based upon your warrior ethios, you must also get it at the F copper working 99 is not going to get out of the car for a nonsense fireworks call?

A: As a PO you know that you must provide your name, cell phone number, and state that you wish to have the youths arrested. Then you must go into the station to speak with the youth Detective to be interviewed. The process takes about 3 hours + or -. If the PO does not perform the arrest, call for a Supervisor and initiate a CR if nothing is resolved.

It's a long painful process, I know.

Why not move the USSS uniformed detail to Chi for the duration of the event? Do you need this force in Washington to guard an empty building?

This will free up the CPD officers to work their own districts and allow those lucky enough to have the weekend off to enjoy it with their families.

In this day and age did you really expect a 10-99 unit to take action on your anonymous 911 call? How was the call dispatched? What was happening with these mopes when the officer arrived on-scene?You say you are CPD but when approached by this officer you didn't have the balls to tell the officer you were the one who called 911? You were too shy to let the officer know what you saw, but got "offended" when she didn't "interview" you? You of all people SHOULD know better -- YOU are the police and it's YOUR neighborhood!

Get ready for a potential tsunami wave of crime and violence.

1.) No summer jobs "for the children" and school violence intervention and mentoring programs have been virtually cancelled due to budget cuts.

This story here tries to sell us on job programs being expanded 'for the children"

http://www.reuters.com/article/2012/06/16/us-usa-cities-teens-idUSBRE85F0B020120616

speaks about Chicago greatly expanding the youth job programs to 17,000 from 5,000.

I ask you to think about how they done that?

By cutting the number of hours/days worked maybe -- turning one full time joh into three or four jobs like the one the mayor brags about giving four kids in city hall? Yeah that's right. The mayor took one clerical position and turned it into four part-time jobs. Instead of one summer job lasting all summer maybe we now have several jobs lasting a few weeks if you're lucky. It's the same b.s. with all the employment b.s. here. What kind of jobs?

Where's the money coming from to all of a sudden pay for not 5,000 but an additional 12,000 jobs on top of the 5,000. Think about it.

Maybe all those jobs will be positions in the "Cease Fire" program eh? Let's see how many of the positions get filled. Jobs advertised =/= jobs created.

Oh and further down in that story they also write about a mentor program for 500 kids in the low income areas of the city. This is framed in the story like it's an expansion of something too. Like it's a new program that never existed but it's another look over here and not over there distraction. While they speak of 500 kids being offered mentors. Over here we see 5,000 kids are going to be kicked out of a CPS mentor program this year.

http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-06-14/news/chi-city-schools-scaling-back-summer-programs-citing-lack-of-federal-cash-20120613_1_jean-claude-brizard-city-schools-summer-programs


2.) Just last month people were kicked off their long-term unemployment benefits leaving them with no money coming in. There are NO LIVING WAGE JOBS.

3.) And Now...After Obama and the Department of Justice let all of their banking friends off the hook for all the frauds, the temporary moratorium on home foreclosures is over and foreclosures are surging once again

Chicago area foreclosure filings spike in May

Foreclosure filings in the Chicago metropolitan area spiked 56.2 percent in May from a year earlier and rose 27.3 percent from April, according to RealtyTrac’s latest report.

The area had the fourth-highest foreclosure rate in the country, and May marked the fifth straight month of year-over-year increases. Foreclosure filings hit 15,066 homes in the area last month — one in every 252 homes.

http://www.suntimes.com/business/13169819-420/chicago-area-foreclosure-filings-spike-in-may.html

So there you go. The people with no jobs who's homes went into foreclosure are getting the double-tap. Their unemployment benefits cutoff and kicked out of the home that they were getting the free ride in. If they're mentally depressed because of it all well that's just too eff-ing bad because Chicago closed down the city mental health clinics and they will be not getting any help from them.

I expect to see chaos in the streets as these events are only beginning to unfold.

Anyone see the flood of NATO tourist yet flooding this economy with wealth? I have not. Watch what happens in Greece with the elections this week end. The Global economy may be on life support by Monday.

Fresh produce to roll through South Side food deserts

(Alex Garcia / Chicago Tribune )
June 08, 2012|By John Byrne | Tribune reporter

A bus loaded with pears, asparagus and other fruits and vegetables soon will start rolling through South Side neighborhoods in a circuit Mayor Rahm Emanuel likened to a healthy ice cream truck route.

The former CTA bus will join one already operating on the West Side by the non-profit organization Fresh Moves. The group aims to bring healthier eats to Chicago's food deserts, neighborhoods lacking proper grocery stores with produce sections.

The U.S. Department of Agriculture agreed to give Fresh Moves a $70,000 grant to renovate a second bus after the first one proved a hit selling produce during regular appearances at pre-set locations, Emanuel said.

“We knew growing up, 4 o'clock on a Thursday at the playground, here comes the ice cream truck,” Emanuel said. “You took that model, turned it upside down, right side up, and made it part of healthy living.”

http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2012-06-08/news/chi-fresh-produce-to-roll-through-south-side-food-deserts-20120608_1_food-deserts-fresh-moves-cta-bus

Nevertheless. Yaaay eh? Well maybe they should be converting armored cars instead. Whatdaya think? Today we give you this:

South Side food pantry truck stolen just 10 days after its purchase

By Deanese Williams-Harris Tribune reporter

3:19 p.m. CDT, June 16, 2012

A West Pullman neighborhood church congregation is pleading with a thief who made off with their food truck late Friday night to return it to the pantry, no questions asked.

Pastor Virgil Jones of the Mother Jones Food Pantry, 711 W. 120th St., said he discovered the 17-foot box truck missing about 11:30 p.m. Friday after returning from delivering food to a needy family.

The 30-member church purchased the truck 10 days ago after saving $9,000 over the past four years, Jones said. The church has been providing food for needy families for 17 years, Jones said.

The pantry serves about 150 households weekly in the Chicago area and had planned to use the truck to pick up food from the Greater Chicago Food Depository and to deliver food to those unable to come out to the pantry. The pantry itself is open noon-2 p.m. every Saturday.

Jones said the vehicle resembles a Budget rental truck and is all white with a cracked top.

"It doesn’t even have license plates yet. We didn’t even get a chance to paint it," Jones said.

The truck was loaded with canned foods, he said.

Speaking to the bandit, Jones said, "Would you please just bring our truck back to where you got it from? We will be happy to help you with any issues you may have."

Jones said with the recent state of the economy and people losing jobs, the pantry has been overwhelmed with helping more families in need.

"There are people in nice cars, Cadillacs and Lincolns, in our food lines," Jones said. "It could be any of us."

Police were notified about the theft, but there was no additional information available about the incident.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/chi-thief-makes-off-with-mother-jones-food-pantry-truck-20120616,0,3481636.story

NO don't look at the $9,000 food pantry truck that was stolen today.

Look over here at the food desert bus that is going to take the entire summer to try to get it to run and may be on the streets by winter after blowing a whopping $70,000 dollars on it. How long will this one last?

Good luck with your political propaganda mayor. You lost control of the city.

Police: Man punched ambulance window, threatened paramedics

"A West Side man is accused of punching out the window of a Chicago Fire Department ambulance and threatening to shoot two paramedics treating a robbery victim early this morning in the Lakeview neighborhood, police said."

...

"The incident started about 3:15 a.m. in the 3400 block of North Halsted Street when the suspect was walking past a large crowd that had gathered around a man in his 20s who'd been knocked out, was bleeding from the nose, and had been possibly robbed, said Lakich.

"He's walking by and he breaks the window of ambulance number 6 for an unknown reason," the lieutenant said.

After shattering the side, glass window of the ambulance, the West Sider made things worse for himself.

"He told paramedics he was going to shoot them," Lakich said...."

Just follow the smell. The south side is starting to smell from all the blood like it did back when the stockyards were open.

Well maybe everyone in the medical examiners office was at a bar/bat mitzvah like the mayor this weekend.

Not everyone has to work weekends right? It's not like we are all in this together or anything like that.

Or maybe the wires for the telegraph were cut again and the water in the creek had risen so the pony express was unable to get the mail though?

This is how a so-called "World Class City" operates, a "Third World Class City"

Woman robbed in South Loop subway

A woman texting on her iPhone was robbed in a South Loop Red Line subway last night, police said

The woman was texting on her iPhone while standing on a Red Line subway platform at the Harrison Street station when she was approached from behind, according to the lieutenant.

"The offender runs up behind her and snatched the phone out of her hands," said the lieutenant.

Two males fled up the stairs leading to Polk Street and no arrests have been made as of late Saturday morning. The two were only described as being in their late teens, wearing T-shirts and jeans.

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/local/breaking/chi-woman-robbed-in-south-loop-subway-20120616,0,6311972.story

Gee lieutenant is that the best description that you can give us or is it the media that doesn't want to share the info?

No camera images? No race, eye or hair color or other distinguishing characteristics?

Teens in tee shirts and jeans. Well that narrows it down to about a couple million people. With these new tools that the department has that enables things we should send a car out to sit in front of the 20 something year old victims house to prevent a retaliatory theft shouldn't we?

This is 100% correct. The political 'sponsors' of this violent festival make hundreds of thousands of dollars from this and pay for nothing.

The taxpayers foot the bill for police, fire and paramedics assigned. The taxpayers pay for the streets and san people that clean it up.
The taxpayer pays for the water, electric and damage to the park.
T

his is a perfect example of corruption. The political sponsors make hundreds of thousands of dollars on the backs of the taxpayers. They pay it back in guaranteed votes for the machine. This explains how a piece of garbage like Little louie

The fact you are a supe in 016 and are completely unaware of the problems in the district (including Hiawatha and Shabonah) just confirms it. Where the fuck have you been lately??? Several people have been jumped and beaten in those parks recently. I doubt it was by the glee club/national honor society members you're describing. Sixteen isn't what it used to be. A lot, not all, of it is being infiltrated by animals and people I don't want around my family. That's a fact. Put down your Starbuck's and try doing some police work and you'll see for yourself.

Blasting the female on 1631 on this forum has led to an increase in the numbers of coppers kids she has locked up. She is trying to prove a point. A copper is beefing, usually about other coppers kids hanging out. She locks them up and explains to the police father WHY she is doing it. She is hoping some day to catch YOUR kid dirty. Now unfortunately you have good kids, from good police families getting records for BS, getting traffic tickets etc.

Now that we have a new Emperor; we can ask questions that should have been asked before. Daley appeased the Puerto Ricans by putting dozens of police free of charge to their ethnic fest. Remember, Puerto Rico is not even a country, it is actually part of the U.S.. This practice of deploying officers to P.R. Fest should be paid by the P.R. Parade Committee which makes big bucks squeezing their vendors. So why are we continuing this practice? Burke's bodyquards, Daley's bodyguards and now this. The two hacks are millionaires and the Fest makes a substantial profit so why are WE still paying for this?

If I don't then I will tell them "no". They can not force me to work on my day off if I don't want to. Sure they could strongly suggest that I go if I want my spot, but I don't need my spot I can go back to the watch anytime I want and be fine. They really can't threaten me with anything. I'd even point out to those same bosses who are giving the ultimatum that it might be very difficult to find a replacement once everyone sees that you have no rights, not even on your days off at your house.

After the mayor shut down the neighborhood mental health clinics there will be much more of this to come I'm pretty sure.

I agree. I am also very scared of mentals. I hope the city will create a public agency to protect me, the lone policeman on the street.

It is all so very scary.

Isn't amazing that all those festivals require all that extra police protection. The more cops the better, the only real argument is who pays for it.

However the Italian Festival at
24th & Oakley doesn't require any more than to just invite the local beat cops to stop by an enjoy a canoli.

Anybody wants to start trouble around there, forgeddaboutit!

Pretty funny hearing the few morons on hear crying about the coppers in 016. Come on up here and show us how it's done. Oh, I know, there are no openings, otherwise you'd be on the next transfer order. Right. You'd be surprised to find out how busy it actually gets, and how thin we are stretched. Yes, there are some dogs working here - that doesn't happen anywhere else, does it? Oh, you saw a beat car from 016 goofing off, drinking coffee and reading his paper? You NEVER stop and take a break where you work, do you? If you worked in 016, YOU would work nonstop and never rest, would you? Keep talking your B.S., while I put my waders on. By the way, in spite of your crying (and lying), I will still always treat you and your family with the utmost respect and professional courtesy, even when you may not deserve it, because that's how I feel it should be, we take care of each other.

To the copper who originally posted about the fireworks: First off, thanks for acknowledging that there are working coppers in 016. I spent 19 years on the west side before I came up here, and I like to think I do my part in protecting the Homefront. Regarding that job, did you ever check the PCAD to see how it was dispatched? If it was a generic "kids blowing off fireworks in the park, from anonymous", I'd say the copper's response was appropriate. And, please identify yourself as the police when you are approached by the police - I do, and if that were me responding to that job and you told me who you were and pointed out the kids in question, I would've grabbed them and handled it as the situation dictated. I would do the same for a citizen that approached me with the same good info as well, but I would've given a P/O a little more credibility and input in how I handled the outcome.

And yes, I think that all residents of 016 should call for anything and everything, maybe we can get some help up here!

Poor baby , elite tactical sgt can't pick up a few extra cars
he should get dumped to 15 in midnights .

The Sgt RH isn't a bad guy just forgot his place in the pecking order. After 10+ years as a Tact Sgt sometimes you forget your roll. In this case he challenged someone heavier than him and lost. Midnights in 015? It wasn't all that but back on the watch, that would be more appropriate.

Oh, yeah, when we were kids we did not cluster in a public park wearing thousands of dollars worth of brand-new blazing-white FUBU sweats, grinding and dry-humping each other and shouting obscenities to "shock" passers-by.

"F__K HER IN THE A__!"

All this is kind of new to me.

This s__t has been going on for years. Yeah, they didn't kill anyone, but they drop their bikes all over blocking the sidewalks, curse and throw things at other park users, intimidate people who would like to get a drink of water at the fountain, etc. The foul language bellowed out at those league baseball games with the parents right there giving off fixed smiles...

...and no, I never acted like this when I was a kid. Chesty nine-year old motherf__ing a grown man. Kid's parents are terrified of him.

Raised by wolves, huh?

I'm not impressed.

Maybe soon it gets a do-rag and a Dago-T and Uncle Ed's pistol. About one step away right now.

Enjoy.

The sky is falling...the sky is falling. Take it easy glum. I see more MF-ing between parents watching their kids play ball. Dropping bikes? Blocking sidewalks? I thought these kids were in cars blocking streets? Do they take the bikes out of their trunks just to piss you off? They ain't fubu wearing gun toting thugs. Don't be afraid of your own shadow. Man up already and say something to them.

PRINT OUT YOUR "UNSUCCESSFUL BIDDER" NOTIFICATON.....

FYI to all those that tried to attain a date on the VIOLENCE INITIATIVE TAKE A LOOK YOU HAVE BEEN DENIED!!!

PROBLEM IS YOU ARE DENIED AS OF 19 JUN 12 TUESDAY .....I FOUND OUT SATURDAY THE 17th!!!!

and TACT AND other mission teeams are being canceled days off and does that mean they are "rigging the selection process" by making so many UNSUCCESSFUL BIDDERS that they didn't realize they POST DATED the rejection date on the computer!!!!!

Many of compared notes and all are denied as of 19 JUN 12 TUESDAY....but it was the 16th when most of them discovered and called some lady at SPECIAL EVENTS that told them it was a "GLITCH" and they could select again (just not the ones you previously selected...WTF?

GRIEVANCE???????

P/O's and SGT.'s TAKE A LOOK....ASAP as long as you print out the REJECTION before TUESDAY you may have the beef!

Someones head is gonna roll!

Blasting the female on 1631 on this forum has led to an increase in the numbers of coppers kids she has locked up. She is trying to prove a point. A copper is beefing, usually about other coppers kids hanging out. She locks them up and explains to the police father WHY she is doing it. She is hoping some day to catch YOUR kid dirty. Now unfortunately you have good kids, from good police families getting records for BS, getting traffic tickets etc.
Think about what you put on a blog. If you have a problem with her call her out fact to face.

6/16/2012 10:41:00 AM

Wow, in twenty-four short hours, she;s become a ball of fire, locking up a huge number of coppers' kids?

First, I doubt it.

Second, how does your kid get locked up if they're not doing anything wrong?

**********************
Sometimes coppers lock kids up for BS just so they don't keep getting the call from the "concerned citizen". Unfortunately that does not work. It actually has a paradoxical effect. NOW the same citizen expects te police to lock someone up every time they call

Its a parent problem not a police problem. Call the park district or the kids parents. Do you expect 1631 to punch 9 year olds in the face and stuff a bar of soap in the kids' mouths! Or maybe call the tact office about locking up 9 year olds for obstructing pedestrian traffic on sidewalks!

You're an asshole.

Every 4th of July, I have to listen to the assholes in the neighborhood blowing off fireworks. The years that I didn't have a garage, I would find my car dinged and pitted from them the next day. When I got a garage, the assholes across the alley blew off fireworks and my aluminum siding was dinged and pitted.

Fireworks are illegal in this city.

I would NEVER EVEN THINK about being so selfish as to blow off fireworks because that would be disrespectful to my neighbors.

If you want to blow off fireworks, go to the country.

Your logic is so flawed regarding this point. If you think kids should be able to blow off M80's, why not let 50 kids blow them off? Where do you draw the line?

It's people (coppers) like you who think you are above the law. And yes, I stop at stop signs, and don't go through yellow or red lights in my personal car.

I also don't light fireworks or shoot at streetlights, or park illegally and then bitch about a ticket.

'Normal' kids end up f*cked up because of people like you who foster the attitude that disobeying the law is okay.

To 1:07am,

I too am frustrated with the dogasses of the 016th district. However, I think your percentages are off, 99% of 016 straight up suck, and 1% know wtf they are doing. Unfortunately, it won't get any better, the CO's/XO's/supervisors are clueless idiots too,

Wow, you must be super cop. In reality most cops in 016 have worked in other units before they came here and probably have forgotten more about police work than you will ever know. You try dealing with cry baby off duty cops who want to tell you how to do your job, when we all know that when they are at work they would have handled the job the exact same way and they justify it as typical ghetto bullshit. GIve the officers in 016 a break. I know there are dogs there, just like in every district and unit in this city. If you are really the police, you should not hesitate to assist a 10-99 unit so that they dont get hurt. Come on superhero, or are you afraid to get your cape dirty?

016 Dog Ass, thanks for taking the time to read my post. I agree with what you said completely. I know quite a few of the guys in 016 that have put in more than their time and went to 016 to be the police for real victims. Shit on this job can show up anywhere and I have as much respect for the officers in 016 as the officers in 011, 015, ect... Some of the comments that were left on here I can only hope didn't come from P.O's but unfortunately, I'm sure they did. Hindsight is 20/20. Maybe I should have approached her since I waited there anyway. There was only the one small group of teens there and I didn't think I really needed to point them out but I'll take the blame for that. As for the comments about... their just kids, you used to do that too, just wait until your kid is getting in trouble....They are kids, and they should not act like the fucking savages from the west side throwing bags full of fast food on the curb when there is a fucking garbage can 15 feet away. I never showed the blatant disrespect SOME of the kids show to adults and little kids at the park, and if my children grow up to be like some of the punks that are hanging out there 1. I will be ashamed of myself as a parent 2. I hope an officer puts them in their place and if I find out they would quickly learn getting caught by the police is the least of their worries. Anyway to those of you in 016 that are still the working police I sincerely thank you. You know who you are and you answer "stupid" calls like these when you can because you know this is your community too and the little shit, if left alone, eventually gets out of control.

So you're a perfect human being that has never once in your life broken any law whatsoever? I bet you've never lied, cheated, or stole anything either right? Did you ever stop to think that maybe the kids lighting off M-80's will eventually learn that what they're doing is stupid and wrong as they get a little older, wiser, and become more responsible? Do you really think a trip to the county jail with the murderers, rapists, armed robbers, and burglars is what they need to teach them not to light off M-80's around the 4th of July? Do you really think that putting them into this fucked up system is what's going to get their lives on track? I suppose you never did anything stupid, annoying, or selfish when you were a kid either. The first poster isn't the asshole, you are.

Actually no I never did any of those things when I was young. I don't think kids nowadays should do it either. It's dangerous and offensive behavior. I guess I expect more from children of police. When you say that these things were normal for you as a child, then I can understand why your children think the same.

Obviously you're not too bright. Now you're comparing murderers with kids that are lighting M-80's off. You need to take a long look at your life and realize that you have broken laws. You have done wrong. You have done stupid things as a kid and as an adult. Nobody is perfect. Well maybe you are, or at least you think you are.
