CompStat

Was that Diane Sawyer walking into HQ to film the CompStat meeting?

What media monstrosity is about to be unleashed with this little show?

UPDATE: So they spent time at E&RPS, too? Interesting. We're guessing something about guns.

O.T. Today's Michael Sneer article about the teachers strike. When asked what former Mayor Daley thought about the strike "He isn't available for Comment" said Jackie Heard, Daleys spokesperson. He's in China " she said. My questions are. Why does Daley have a spokesperson? Are the taxpayers paying for his unnecessary spokesperson? If so how much is this waste costing us? And don't forget his bodyguard detail that Rahm said would only be for 6 months. Its been a year and a half of taxpayer money wasted. Hey media would you care to ask or investigate any of this wasteful spending in a broke city and crumbling economy???

Illinois posts nation's highest foreclosure rate in August

Updated 5:41 a.m.

Illinois posted the highest foreclosure rate in the nation in August, with one of every 298 homes receiving a foreclosure notice, according to a report issued today.

--------------------

Oh those brilliant politicians with their corporate tax breaks and so-called job saving and/or creating plans. See how well it's all working?

20,000 more people on Food Stamps in Illinois as of the last report too.

How about we sell the naming rights to that Maggie Daley park to raise "much needed" money. We could sell the naming rights to Daley Plaza too. Sell it to China that's it! They can call it Tiananmen Square.

Yeah.

Come on down to Tinanmen Square in Rahmallah on the west bank of lake Michigan. In the fall we have Apple picking. And if you're an adventuring tourist that really wants to soak up the Sanctuary City culture take a short ride on one of our bullet trains to the southern providence of Englewood to watch one of the daily gun battles between rival tribal factions in the porous border region.

Maybe you'll step on a shell casing and be able to bring it home as a souvenir of your stay!

Don't worry about passports or other silly papers. You can stay in the Golden Heights mag mile impunity zone where the laws do not matter as long as you KEEP SHOPPING!

You may have heard that Chicago is part of a nation of laws but that's all bullshit. Ask the mayor. No wait just watch the mayors actions and see if they match his words that's all.

So come on down and better hurry. One more was shot dead in the Humboldt Park providence just this morning. You don't want to miss all the fun now do you?

"U.S. embassies attacked in Yemen, Egypt after Libya envoy killed"

Oh eff that stuff.

Obama and Rahm have SuperPac corporate fund raising dinners to go to so that they can buy more advertising time and hold more meet and greets to spread their political propaganda.

What do you want them to do, their jobs? Cancel the SuperPac fund raising, are you out of your mind?!

Got $114 million dollars and don't know what to do with it?

For Gods sake don't build a factory that builds something. A hospital or a school. Hell naw. Give it to your favorite DNC or RNC organization so that they can TALK about building something should they be able to create a tax to do it with and a tax break for the corporation so the corporations don't have to pay their share.

That's money well spent. It's like that $55 mil for Maggie Daley park.

Boy-oh-boy that's an investment that's going to attract corporate interest.

Next time one of these corporations want another tax break we can hold that park over their heads as a negotiation tool.

Hey, Motorola, Sears, etc.. Go ahead and leave Chicago we dare you. Heh. They ain't going no-where cuz we have a $55 mil. dollar Maggie Daley park!

Think that'll work?

9/13/2012 10:23:00 AM

Could be a multitude of reasons, but looking at it from our side (beat officer side), we're about at a crossroad. Revenue generation via tickets is a fairly safe bet these days for us. This is because it's a prima facie case that shows we're doing a PART of our job yet gives us relative shielding from the newest form of defense tactic: suing the police because we arrested you.

While we adamantly oppose generating revenue by nitpicking the general public insomuch that it gives Emanuel more money to slush fund over to his cronies while denying the people who GAVE him that cash any and all consideration for providing it, we're still people who are willing to enforce some kind of law in this city even if our own politicians are adamantly opposed to us enforcing it when it may diminish their chances of using lax law enforcement to purchase votes from those who violate the law on a regular basis.

In the end, I would hope it's not a petty vindictive assault on our outlying neighbors. We, the police, are well aware that you provide our city with your share of revenue in other ways, and I don't hink we, the police, believe we should shit on you folks for minor harmless infractions.

The problem is, we CAN'T be the police this city needs right now because politicians have abused and blamed us for all the ills of society for so long that we now respond in a minimal, self preservation mode.

Sorry you got hit with petty police activity. It IS still a function of what we're supposed to do.

Try to find it in your heart to give us the benefit of the doubt that what you endure in police response is completely due to what elected policitians have brought upon decent society in the quest for votes and power.

Just fight the tickets if they are handwritten. 955 of all CPD issued tickets are tossed for cause these days.

Contest it for time on the Rush Hour ticket. And contest the Dbl Prk for no photo evidence of violation.

Most parking tickets are written by Department of Finance or Revenue, whatever it is called now. Yes, they will stick it to you, all for the money. Yes, they are strapped for cash. No double parking anywhere. Except the west side near churches on Sundays.

Welp, Accretive Health Cares stock closed down 11.28% today. Pretty huge down move for the day!

Anyways, check this guy out in an SEC filing for Accretive...

Change in Directors or Principal Officers


On August 29, 2012, Accretive Health, Inc. (the "Company") appointed Miles W. McHugh, age 47, as Chief Accounting Officer of the Company (the Company's principal accounting officer), effective September 10, 2012. From February 2012 until August 2012, Mr. McHugh served as a Chief Financial Officer of Exopack Holding Corp., a packaging company, and from September 2011 until February 2012, he served as a temporary employee of the Chicago Board of Education where he provided finance and budget services. From October 2007 until May 2011, Mr. McHugh served as Executive Vice President and Chief Financial Officer of RR Donnelley & Sons Company ("RR Donnelley"), a printing and communications company, and from June 2006 to October 2007, he was Senior Vice President and Corporate Controller of RR Donnelley.

In connection with his appointment, Mr. McHugh and the Company entered into an offer letter pursuant to which Mr. McHugh is entitled to an annual base salary of $350,000 and a discretionary cash bonus target of $150,000 for 2013. In addition, Mr. McHugh will be awarded an option to purchase 100,000 shares of the Company's common stock. In the event the Company terminates Mr. McHugh's employment other than for cause, he will be entitled to ninety days of salary continuation

http://biz.yahoo.com/e/120905/ah8-k.html

=========================

Can this guy hold a job for longer that 16 months? He's 47 and they highlight only the last six years of employment history and for one of those jobs he worked for Chicago Board of Ed. and for this experience he gets a $350K plus pay package.

Gotta love that clout. Six months here, six months there.

Why yes, YES they are.

The Department of Revenue in Chicago had gone as far as making up abandoned vehicle charges for city residence vehicles!

The city is so hard up for money.

Be glad that they didn't tow you, damage your vehicle, and hold your car for ransom on some trumped up bullshit.

It's the perfect scam because if and when you try to call 311 to report some funny stuff going on the IG will tell you that they don't investigate that kind of stuff.

My guess is it's creating a windfall of money for the city and the clouted towing contractor.

Probably Department of Revenue writing those tickets.

Ok, let's get this straight for all you idiots that still come down into Dallyville, I mean Rahmstadt.... If you can't read a sign or follow direction, YOU WILL GET TICKETED maybe towed.
Btw... It ain't by the unhappy police. Beware of bike riding and Segway humping revenue, tow truck driving traffic aids, and wheelchair bound ticket writers. It AIN'T the police

Could be a multitude of reasons, but looking at it from our side (beat officer side), we're about at a crossroad. Revenue generation via tickets is a fairly safe bet these days for us. This is because it's a prima facie case that shows we're doing a PART of our job yet gives us relative shielding from the newest form of defense tactic: suing the police because we arrested you.

While we adamantly oppose generating revenue by nitpicking the general public insomuch that it gives Emanuel more money to slush fund over to his cronies while denying the people who GAVE him that cash any and all consideration for providing it, we're still people who are willing to enforce some kind of law in this city even if our own politicians are adamantly opposed to us enforcing it when it may diminish their chances of using lax law enforcement to purchase votes from those who violate the law on a regular basis.

In the end, I would hope it's not a petty vindictive assault on our outlying neighbors. We, the police, are well aware that you provide our city with your share of revenue in other ways, and I don't hink we, the police, believe we should shit on you folks for minor harmless infractions.

The problem is, we CAN'T be the police this city needs right now because politicians have abused and blamed us for all the ills of society for so long that we now respond in a minimal, self preservation mode.

Sorry you got hit with petty police activity. It IS still a function of what we're supposed to do.

Try to find it in your heart to give us the benefit of the doubt that what you endure in police response is completely due to what elected policitians have brought upon decent society in the quest for votes and power.

RE: Making up abandoned vehicle tickets etc..

You can't be a cop. Because if you were, you'd know the ordinance is "Abandoned/Not moved in 7 days & apparently deserted or incapable of operation."
If you got a car on ravenswood with a street cleaning or exp plate ticket on it that is older than 7 days ( and we do see it) then the 9-80-110A ticket can be written legally. Got the white ward 7 day warning sticker on it? Legal to ticket for 7 day rule. No plates?


And in regards to the "No dbl parking anywhere except near west side churches on Sunday" comment....revenue doesn't work weekends....so if you get a ticket on Sat or Sun.... It's CPD or SerCo.


And the revenue union workers are not happy there are scab contractors issuing tickets for CPM and the City Clerk and at night/weekends for Finance. It should only be the job of city employees to issue tickets.

You're kidding right. You admit to double parking(violation) and parking on a fire hydrant(violation) yet you are bitching about a ticket. Maybe find a legal parking spot and walk like you tell all the "lazy" people you would write a ticket to. And yes I am a cop for over twenty years and think you are a douche and wrong. I guess the guy who wrote the ticket was supposed to know you are alledgedly a cop just because you displayed you "get a free pass because I'm a cop" FOP sticker.

I am the police and my response to you is, tough. Too bad. You got caught.

I live on one of those blocks with a daycare business. There are cars and trucks and vans blocking the street when people are trying to get to work. There are cars, ooooh, with flashers on, inconveniencing everyone who LIVES here and pays pretty high taxes to do so. They block the sightlines on the corner. They park on the hydrant. They make it impossible to turn. They load their kids from the street side of the car.

You parked on a HYDRANT? No, even worse, you DOUBLE parked on a HYDRANT? You're more than ignorant; you're dangerous. Pay your ticket and never, ever tell that story again, because you sound like an idiot.

The revenue writer was right. YOU SHOULD KNOW BETTER and you shouldn't embarrass the rest of us by putting FOP stickers on your car if you expect to use them to flaunt the law.

Uh, they tape these things in advance, Mr. Northen. Then they edit them. Then they run them past Legal. Then they air them. Like in a few days or a few weeks. And, preferably, during sweeps.

Take it easy douchebaggette. Where in the hell did you read that? Are you still in mom's basement. Christ, lay off the hair gel, it's frying your brain. I'm sure we worked the same district, you're the idiot we laugh at when you leave the room. You've been schooled, now go sit down and shut up.

A few months back, I went to get my son from the babysitter around 3pm. Its a permit street and always packed. I double parked on a hydrant with my windows open, flashers on and my dog in the pickup bed. I called before I got there so my sitter would have him ready. I ran upstairs, grabbed him and returned within 4 minutes, got 2 tickets by department of revenue bike guy. I see him, ask to talk to him nicely. He says, "saw the fop stickers, are you a cop?" I tell him yeah, he says "you should know better." I ask if he noticed the dog and flashers on. He says "yeah, but you would have written someone a ticket for the same thing." These guys are heartless and use no judgement.
-----------------------

Yea, your flashers were on. That makes it legal. You are retarded.

I could care less about comp stat. All I know is I'm on SWAT, previously HBT had been promised a take home car and Sgt's pay and our union took it off the table. I'm sick of responding from my house to a call out in my own vwhicle and getting suited up in front of people. The gear we wear hardly fits in my small car and everyday I have to carry it inside my house. This job sucks!!! We have to constantly train and always being attached to the blackberry. We're on call all the time and we don't get one extra dime for that. Fuck this I'm goingbtobau district at least I don't have to wear that heavy shit vest and helmet. Mike Shields you re a liar. You promised SWAT Sgt's pay.

--------------

Wow! There are some incredibly retarded people who are police officers!

1. If it is that bad, go to a busy district.
2. You are on call all the time? Do you have to report to a district and work the full day? Probably not.
3. You want Sgt's pay and a company car? I do too.
4. This job sucks? Go work somewhere else. With your skills, you are underpaid.
5. You do a lot of traing? Train your cerebral muscle.

This job is giving you (with a relaxed spot) more than enough resources for you to come out ahead.

Sorry, gotta call you out on that one. Nobody from a police family has ever been denied an escort by 022......was this another district perhaps? Or was a police family involved?
As far as the gang funerals, we make sure that the funerals get in and out as fast as possible from Mt Hope. They do not get an escort, meaning they do not get lead or tail car to proceed with them. Would you rather we let them go at their own pace and go through the neighborhood? Then we would be dogs in your mind...

So he could write another bogus violation I said enough is enough and now you don't get that city sticker revenue anymore Chicago.

It apppears the changes have been made for Sunday.

The D unit is back in good hands.
----------------------------------
Fridy's changes- Tom Byrne is going to 014.

Maria Maher, former chief of dick's is un-retiring and taking back her old job. Flores is going up to Dep. Chief of Dicks.

This came from the hall to McC. They want someone who will get the dicks to start clearing the open cases ASAP. Both of these two have a proven record while in the "D" unit. They will not be putting up with the crying anymore.

There was talk of demoting dick's who will not produce. In a week or so a list of the bottom feeders will be sent to her and off they go back to a beat car in a S/Side district

Off topic : Is it true that 20 plus coppers have been stripped in the past month? WTF is going on over there at IAD and IPRA? These cases are old ones I guess 5 plus years old. FOP Mccarthy had a good letter in the sept newsletter about these very same issues going on. Hey SUP here is a news flash::: if you want to lower crime then back your guys when the frickn beefs come in. Just sayn.

A good one was stripped in 7 recently for nonsense. Apparently, being a convicted felon is no problemo when it comes to accusing a p.o. of wrong doing.

While he might not have all the answers, he's doing more than those bs criminals called cease fire, without the million. Give the man a break he's on your side stupid.

"Mike Shields you re a liar. You promised SWAT Sgt's pay."

Prior to the last contract, the FOP assisted SWAT, the Evidence Technicians, IAD & a sub-unit of Traffic (I don't recall which one) in producing their presentations before the city's contract committee for raises.

They reproduced our presentation booklet, offered advice and helped us hone our presentations. They did everything short of doing the presentation for us, which in my opinion, was the right thing to do because after all, we're the experts in our respective fields, right?

None of us got the raise we fought for. That's not FOP's fault. That's the city's fault for not recognizing the value of these units and the job they do.

rb if you are on SWAT let's make a couple things clear for you highly skilled SWAT operators. You guys volunteered to be on call. You receive more training and equipment then anyone else. You work out on company time and don't make arrests. Your always at the Gold coast doing nothing and you want D2 or D3 pay for what? How about thinking of the other 10,000 officers and stop being selfish. The city is gonna try andvrape us FOP has to concentrate on the masses not thecselect few with a phone call. Now go read your Blackhawk magazine and order more gear with the money your making in overtime from search warrants or responding to HBT jobs. FOP shouldn't even be considering you guys for anything extra. Just like the Sgts getting an extra 45 minutes a day for nothing If you don't like it rb then pick a district. Come work in 005 with me. We have a beat car you can use anytime you want. Will even let you do a presentation for us on all the cool training you received and all your cool gear.

This is such a stupid response about volunteering to be on swat. Didn't the po's volunteer to be on k9, marine unit, mounted unit, fto, et and any other officer making d2 pay. So if we don't deserve it then neither do they and it should be taken away. As far as being in the gold coast did you ever think there is a sort car assigned in 1/18 because there is a higher likely hood of a terrorist attack in those districts than anywhere else. Or would you rather us just seat in the office waiting for the call like the bomb techs making Sgt's pay. Stop being jealous and try out next time, it's probably the only legit test given by the department and Zero merit!

He does have a point. All those other units do get extra pay. SWAT doesn't get anything extra for putting our lives on the line. Yes we do get to workout but our gear is heavy. We do have to train in harsh conditions and we are the last line of defense for the street cops. I know some people are haters of us cause we are the only legit unit on CPD but it's the truth.
