The Beatings Will Continue...

How can we get more work out of uninspired officers? Here's a bright idea from the southwest side:
  • The commander of 10 had a meeting the other day with all the supervisors of that building. From what we were told by sgts at roll call and how we interpreted it, the fixed posts aka "the box" that the district mans are basically punishment and/or extortion. We were told that more boxes may be on the way, but the way to avoid that is to produce more numbers. WTF? Way to motivate your troops commander. Mostly everybody hates sitting on these things because they're boring, you can't leave without proper relief and you're a sitting target. The more boxes we have to man will also mean more work for the rest of the watch since those cars will be down and unavailable for assignment. Oh, and that will probably mean less people will be able to take time due.

Have none of these asshats ever laid eyes on a motivational book? Or taken a speech writing course? Taken a course in Logic? Or studied the basics of debate where you try to convince the audience of the correctness of your side of the argument? Here's a bright idea - read Dale Carnegie's How to Win Friends and Influence People. The big words will probably frighten most of the command staff in general and Pena in particular, but....

Ah crap, who are we kidding? The command staff pick up a book? We might as well braid the whips they beat us with already. We have got to stop drinking grandpa's homemade liquor.

This is a direct result of the "shit" McCarthy gives during ComPost

Problem is,commander will glady eat the shit, 'cause they are hoping for a higher promotion.

No activity.

This is very simple, boys and girls.

No activity.

Let them put the whole fucking watch in a "box", I don't give a shit.

And for those who have to answer the calls because others are being penalized, answer the call and do a thorough investigation, or tour the area, or play with yourself, BUT DON'T CLEAR YOURSELVES UNTIL THE JOB IS THOROUGHLY DONE.

And for Christ's sake, no fucking activity!

The answer to this problem is hire more cops.

As it stands, even with hiring more cops, think of how inexperienced they will be anyway because there are no veterans around to mentor them.

18 years ago, there were cops who were training me who had 30 and 40+ years on the job. Not all of the old timers were "do nothings" and even if they by that point in their careers, they still shared plenty of good information.

Between Daley and Emmanuel destroying this department with the "strategy of the day" and the refusal to hire cops, they have created an environment that will breed crime and that will be very difficult to put in check.

Crime will spread and increase - unless of course they can continue burying it with their false numbers.

Thank God I see the light of retirement drawing closer.

Start over from scratch! Revamp the old Maxwell Street station,used in the Hill Street Blues television series, and label it district 666. Clear out the academy of the majority of losers that are working there.....then bring back the old timers! Make the academy ten weeks of training with only firearms and law being taught. All that other crap is a joke like cuffing techniques and ethics which only work in fantasy land. Have the old timers teach special classes on how to take money on traffic stops, plant evidence, and how to spot the good stuff to take on a D.O.A. Reorganize the Marine Unit so that only officers that have served in the military or might actually know how to swim can work that unit. The Mounted Unit will be reassigned to the various C.A.P.S offices for racing and gambling to make their lame out-door events more entertaining for the Alder-Creatures and ghetto kids.

Give the Commanders and Deputies 20 percent raises with the condition that they must all be drunk 24/7 (don't worry, a suckass lackey will volunteer to chauffeur them around) and that they must only work 4 hours and stay in their own personal office during that time. We long for the days when exempts were mostly unknown if you kept a low profile, and weren't running around on the streets like Roger Ramjet pretending to know what the f%$k they were doing.

that's just the start, it was told in roll call if you really wanted a day off and if you would go to the commander and told her that you really needed the day off, the first thing she is going to look at is the activity, according to one sgt. But just one thing about the people that are being put in the box these people asked for the box and half the time they are sleeping anyway and to top it off some are fto's. so go figure.

This is difficult to accomplish in 010, each watch is so undermanned. There are three "boxes" that require face to face relief and two cars for station security.

2nd watch has 12 beat cars 99, and 2 rapids up that are 10-4.
1st watch has the same beats up and a wagon and two Or 3 "06" cars.
How does she expect people to produce numbers when 4 cars out of 12 are down right away, add that in with a hospital detail or arrest and that leaves 2 or 3 cars to handle everything in the district. It is impossible to take a piss there now with all the shootings, domestics and typical nonsense that having 2 hospitals in your district brings. When should the Amos and curfews and school a senses take place? Between guarding a crime scene or on the way to the hospital to gather information from a Agg. Batt, sorry shooting, no your strategy doesn't work and not asking for more bodies is a failure on your part.

McDumDum isn't going anywhere, even though there were 8 shootings within hours last night.

That is because Rahm knows that ANYONE he puts in that spot will not have any effect.

Rahmbolina realizes that the only solution is more police. Expect him to pull a wad of cash out of his ass to do so.

Remember when McHuh? got here and said we didn't need more police?

Now all of a sudden they want to hire 500 this year?

Problem is, no planning was done and the lack of candidates is hampering their efforts. Now watch, they'll take dog-asses because they have no real qualified candidates, and that'l be a whole 'nother set of problems down the road.

Good going Shortpants, for running this city into the ground and then running away.

And with 19 people shot not ONE is dead? WTF is up with that? Good shot hitting 8 people in one shooting, but come on you thugs! Practice! Practice! Practice!

McCarpetbagger claims that his old man was a Marine, well if he was, the apple definitely fell miles from the tree.
As a veteran NCO of the USMC, I was taught that a leaders job is two-fold:
(1)Accomplishment of the mission,
(2)Welfare of the troops.
Neither was more important than the other. If you didn't accomplish the mission you couldn't take care of the troops because the mission has to be completed and until it is you have to work the troops harder, but if you took care of the troops properly in the first place, the mission got completed in a timely efficient manner and everything was hunky-dorry.
The troops, not the command, is who accomplishes the mission. If they are unhappy, the mission never gets completed. If the mission doesn't get completed the "leader" gets replaced and you start over.
The issue is that there is no leadership in this department at all. No one that gets it. There is no one that has lived it. Thusly, there is no leadership. And it starts at the very tippy-top of the pyramid (McCarpetbagger).
So, McCarpetbagger, a piece of advice, once you stop being a positional leader and start doing your job and getting rid of the inept bosses in charge, maybe you will inspire and influence (inspirational leadership - look it up)us to do a better job and the mission will be successful. Until that time people will only follow you because we have too, not because we want too.
And people will continue to die.

This reminds me of a great movie:

Them clothes got laundry numbers on them. You remember your number and always wear the ones that has your number. Any man forgets his number spends a night in the box. These here spoons you keep with you. Any man loses his spoon spends a night in the box. There's no playing grab-ass or fighting in the building. You got a grudge against another man, you fight him Saturday afternoon. Any man playing grab-ass or fighting in the building spends a night in the box. First bell's at five minutes of eight when you will get in your bunk. Last bell is at eight. Any man not in his bunk at eight spends the night in the box. There is no smoking in the prone position in bed. To smoke you must have both legs over the side of your bunk. Any man caught smoking in the prone position in bed... spends a night in the box. You get two sheets. Every Saturday, you put the clean sheet on the top... the top sheet on the bottom... and the bottom sheet you turn in to the laundry boy. Any man turns in the wrong sheet spends a night in the box. No one'll sit in the bunks with dirty pants on. Any man with dirty pants on sitting on the bunks spends a night in the box. Any man don't bring back his empty pop bottle spends a night in the box. Any man loud talking spends a night in the box. You got questions, you come to me. I'm Pena, the floor walker. I'm responsible for order in here. Any man don't keep order spends a night in the box.

I don't feel sorry for you guys. If you all don't come to an agreement together, to do nothing but answer calls and only make arrests with signed complaints, then deal with the commander. I realize we all need time off, but screw it. You can deal without a few days off for a while. Lay down and do nothing. No movers, parkers, contact cards or event numbers. Stop going in begging for time off. After a short time of zero activity across the board and no one caring about days off, things will change. If you guys don't have the balls to beat them at their own game, stop whining.

You only get production from people who WANT to produce. You get zero numbers from people who DO NOT want to produce. People produce because they take ownership in what they do and are rewarded for their efforts. In other words, you will get nothing from punishing people for not producing. As a troll, I think you cops are fucked and always will be. You could have the best led and motivated police department in the world with the best numbers. Then you have a corrupt Cook County Court System.

That is not what the Commander said.

We all know they are a joke, a waste of time and are very welcomed by those that don't want to do anything all day. The P/O's and Sgt.'s in 10 work their a$$e$ off every day running from call to call sometimes not even getting a chance to use the bathroom. For the most part everyone in 10 does what they have to do and were always willing to help out the boss when activity was needed, even for Commander Pena. But then the powers that be decided that we don't need more police, we will just work the ones we have to death and then maybe hire some more. CW takes this to heart and loves to make people miserable, she is the one ruining 10 far more than Pena can ever do. As for the boxes ask the ones who demand to be the box car, what type of punishment it is. It actually makes me sick to hear these P/O's yes some FTO"s demand a box cause they don't want to work a Bt car, your fellow officers appreciate your help.

"...Someone posted the other day there is a way to put the police calendar on your Iphone? True or urban myth?..."
Ok...one more time:
On yor iPhone 4s browser, Open Chicago FOP on Safari or Google Chicago FOP Calendar. Drop down tab for Police Calendars, open Operational Cal. for any year (it's 2012) (jab), then press the little box w/the arrow (Forward symbol) on it- that will prompt you to 'Add to Home Screen'. This creates an Icon and you can type in a name for the icon. (or shortcut) to the Calendar page. If you never added a shortcut, read the bookmarked IPhone User Guide. You can create many icon shortcuts to any site including Second City and Shaved. It's a bit tricky, but you can create the logo too by positioning the screen page over a picture, then press to save. Play around with it. If you have an iPhone 3G or Gs, tap the "+" to Add to Home screen.
Better yet, book mark this post and forward it off to anyone how asks you, "How U do Dat ?".

Look at the salaries that are being paid in private industry as compared to yours. That should motivate you.

Sounds like the XO-PT is advocating people's civil rights--and instituting a quota system. As far as the 9 hours, so what. Read a book. And do you really think she's going to show up at the end of every watch/checkoff to monitor it? You've GOT to be more creative!

Years and years ago my partner decided we would have 'library hour' or whatever we could squeeze in, even 5 minutes, to power down toward the end of the day. He also instituted the 'Mememememe', ala the 3 Stooges--meme time....for those of you who know.

So true, so true. Narcotics should be cut by at least 150 coppers. We need coppers on the street and not sitting around acting like real U/C police. Smoke and mirrors since narcotics left Normal Street.
Chuck Ramsey was the boss and if he still was you would not last a week. Same with Walter Green. They made the unit great.
Now go grease you hair children.

xxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxxx

There is an answer folks. When the new breed of police do their jobs the crime rate will fall. What in heaven do the tac teams do now. One bag and sit and eat in office ! 8 copper's on the paper.

Was on tac over 25 years ago. We ran the area and not the bangers. Homicide victims got justice. Now all we hear is beefing on the brass and the mayor. The rev's were always good to the police. Why, cause we related to them.

So hair gels in narco, all the hundreds there, your one bag s/w' do nothing to curb crime. You guys are sero's from the old narco guys.

All these allegd U,C guys should go back in the bag for 2 weeks out of every period.

The dick's are the only ones burning out getting job after job. These guys are falling off their chairs from working 14 hours a day. The body can only take so much shit then your health fails.

Tac and narcotics do not have that problem. 4 hour days and eating well, and the usual 4 day work week.

Well now, isnt that special?!?!?

The above poster is right on. We do our job. Answer our calls and most back each other up. Commander Pena for the most part, has her hands tied with most of whats dished out. Thats downtowns orders. They make the rules. Sure she was given the job as Commander, a job that I wouldnt want. Forced days off with no pay. I know a 9161 who probably takes more home a month than the Commander does. Making a District run with no manpower and broken equipment. We all have experienced countless District Commanders, but NONE of them have had it as bad as it is now. I too have had to wait to till the end of the tour to piss just about everyday. M.P. is approachable and easy to talk to. I just dont expect any perks anymore because I believe the Mayor and past criminal politicians and their families have put us where we are at with their greed and criminal acts. No one can blame M.P. for anything going on right now. I was at that Supervisor meeting. The Commanders words were twisted and being blown out of proportion. PO's are expected to do a job. M.P. just expects everyone to pull their own weight. The 10th District has been a little more relaxed over the last week or so. C.W. is on her furlo......

Now days no one cares if you bring in 1 bag or 100 bags. As long as there is a CB number from inside of a box. As far as the hair gels do this or do that I wonder if 25 years ago when you say you were the real deal if you would have extended yourself for this city. You know risk your job or freedom to be the real poleeezes. In closing ,sir, this city does not want people policing like they did 25 years ago there's too much liability and oh yeah the people who need to be policed are voting Democrat.

Harold Washington all things considered wasn't too bad once you got past the "Here's Harold!" bombast. The worst thing he did was give us racist Leroy Martin as Superintendent.

The best mayor was Jane Byrne, the widow of a Marine pilot she loved her boys in blue. If Frank Muscari hadn't screwed things up and taken the fire fighters on strike we wouldn't have had Richie Daley splitting the vote and we would have had Jane (we miss you)much longer. If it wasn't for the fact she's pushing 78 or so I'd say bring her back.

When it all goes to hell, you'll be sitting stubbornly on the charred remains of your house demanding somebody give a fuck because you "pay taxes."

Your shit-talk to The Police about "man the fuck up" is misplaced... You really should direct that toward your elected officials who are the ones solely responsible for current state of affairs.

Whoops! your elected officials don't give a flying fuck about the Policeman and his family so they surely don't give a fuck about you or yours.

You're outnumbered and surrounded in this city, you moron!

Your elected officials are giving everything away to the catered to constituents.

You exist to support THEM.

You: "WAAAHHH! I DEMAND SOMEBODY GIVE A FUCK ABOUT ME!"

What's the matter? You're scared because you realize that The Police are so depleted and diminished that we probably won't be able to save you in your time of need?

Find your elected officials blogs and shit-talk them.

So for clarity, I guess I should have pointed out im not some Joe citizen sitting on the sideline complaining. SO I should have wrote WE signed up for this in my original post.

I've said it before, things are not ideal. Yes I've had time denied. Yes, I've had nights that seem like they never end because you are getting run around from one end of a district to another. Yes I get stuck doing crap I dont want to do. However, the idea of just sitting back, doing nothing, not giving a fuck, not backing people up, not going to in-progress calls....

Call me all the names you want but that point cannot be argued. Because no matter how much you want to blame higher ups for everything, we (patrol,etc) are responsible for each other. If you cant at least do that...don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

That shit is just wrong, it's indefensible.

Call me all the names you want but that point cannot be argued. Because no matter how much you want to blame higher ups for everything, we (patrol,etc) are responsible for each other. If you cant at least do that...don't let the door hit you in the ass on the way out.

Junior, we'll always back you up and make sure you don't get hurt out there while doing the stupid shit you do, but that's where it ends. If you want to be the poster child for the sacrificial lamb, go right the fuck ahead. The rest of us will make it to retirement by answering the radio and backing each other up without going the extra mile for those who are screwing us.

When will we collectively like the Mayor, Supt, Bosses, Supervisors, policy changes, contract etc? Never. I don't think there will ever be a time when all of those issues will be to everyone's liking at the same time. So does that mean people are always going have this attitude of I'm not doing anything?

Let's face it, a lot of you guys will always have something to complain about and always find a reason for why you are not going to do any work.

We will never be in a perfect or ideal situation. That's just how it goes. It blows but that's the reality. So do we just sit back and say to hell with it?

Departments evolve ,change, move forward and sometimes backwards.

We cant just pout and take the ball home whenever things don't go as we want them.

Maybe having some pride in your job performance is an archaic ideology for some.

I can see not wanting to write extra movers/parkers. I even think the contact card thing can get out of hand. But we can't just sit by, put the 'blinders' on and do little to nothing.

While we may not like what's going on we are still being paid to do a job, not cover our eyes, or close them.

I and the people I work with put our lives on the line every night for each other, not for CW, Not for Pena, or McCarthy or Rahm.

But we demand respect from these people and we are not getting it. WE demand what we need to do the job and we are not getting it. We demand what we earned to enjoy stress free time with our families and we are not getting it.

This department was run much better in our memory, why did they have to change something that wasn't broken.

I hope the department finds a way, someday, to get rid of these aholes who take this job and then lay down and do nothing hoping the city will burn.

You say Junior as if I'm some fricking PPO. If you call stupid shit doing what I am supposed to do, going to jobs, trying to catch offenders, assisting other units when they ask, hell, even before they ask, then maybe you're the stupid one.


Someone told me quite some time ago there will always be shit talking, lazy MF's on this Dept, so get over it. Maybe I finally need to accept it.

It's not just lack of man power that puts me at risk, it's the manpower that's useless that is putting me at risk as well.

Are you that willfully blind and ignorant?

The situation in Chicago has decayed far beyond the ability of Policemen to fix. Policemen are a mere fractional percentage of the population. The media and politicians have taken pains to curtail our influence by driving away our middle-class, blue collar peers and driving a wedge between us and the ones who couldn't flee.

This city has been given over to non-contributing dogs because they reproduce rapidly and their whelps vote straight democratic.

You're a fool for insisting on laying this fiasco at the feet of Policemen.

"I hope the department finds a way, someday, to get rid of these aholes who take this job and then lay down and do nothing hoping the city will burn"

Stop reasoning like a child!
This city IS BURNING of it's own accord and not because of what Policemen are/aren't doing...
