Another Kirby Scandal?

  • The two veteran Chicago police officers were sent to the Ida B. Wells public housing complex to work undercover and catch drug dealers. But what Shannon Spalding and Daniel Echeverria found was nothing their bosses wanted to know about, the officers allege in a whistle-blower lawsuit filed Thursday in federal court.

    The two officers, according to the lawsuit, discovered that colleagues on the police force were shaking down drug dealers and framing innocent people. But when they told their supervisors, they were told to "disregard" the wrongdoing. And when, as a last resort, they went to the FBI with their claims, high-ranking police officials labeled them "rats" and retaliated against them by putting them in do-nothing jobs.
And the list of bosses named is impressive:
  • First Deputy James Jackson; Chief Juan Rivera; Deputy Chief Deb Kirby; Commanders O'Grady, Roti, Saleme, Stanley (John Stroger's neice), assorted lieutenants and sergeants - a dozen in all PLUS the City of Chicago
It almost seems like.....dare we say it?  A disorganized conspiracy!

And as in the Abbate trial, the ones allegedly running the "conspiracy" all appear to be wearing White Shirts.

Adds to a firm foundation in the Abbott case. That is: CPD has a POLICY of a code of silence.

Get out the checkbooks. It won't be the mayor, alderman, or other political officials that get hit.

We'll just have to raise taxes, skip the next pension payment or two until Rahm gets his supreme court candidate in place. Then he can bust the union contracts and steal everyone's retirement and interpret the laws his way.

Corporate campaign donations allow them to buy the judges that interpret the laws that you think protect you.

Serpico Part Deux complete with a Femme Fatale sidekick?

No, not really.

According to the majority that've worked with or around the pair, they're just two "veteran" (ha! a joke in and of itself) hardons that have been coddled for most of their time on the job. Assigned to cushy unit after cushy unit complete with all the regular perks that most of us will never see in our career.

There is much MUCH more to this latest CPD "scandal", and not in the way the police-hating public would like to see unravel. These two "whistleblowers" will ultimately be the ones with egg on their faces - too smart for their own good is as far as I'll elaborate at this point.

These goofs are toxic. Use the appropriate cautions around them.

Stanley do nothing dumb fuck Lt in NAGIS, that hardly went on raids let alone the streets. Dumb as a box of rock when promoted to commander of 21. (Back by Preckwinkle ald of the 4th ward at that time) Couldn't articular any facts to the public at CAPS meeting without her support staff to speak for her ignorant. Ass. Just another political hack. Roti no surprise their just like the other Roti that retired from NAGIS. (Operation Snakebite) Jackson i don't know and Rivera the jury is still out. As a P.O. ounce told me back in the 80's white shirts are the biggest crooks in CPD. I hope this don't turn into another Summerdale scandal. But if it do the only thing left to change CPD is a consent decree. And I dont care who gets mad on that statement, enough is enough. It will be interesting to see how Gen McBragg (new name) and one term spin it.

Never you mind that crashing noise SCC...

It was the sound of the clouted & well taken care of crashing head-on into each other after hearing about this lawsuit.

Metal, glass, hair, teeth and shit flung every which way and the gas is leaking...

*Hey hey! Watch where you flick that butt, fella!*

When these bosses, current and past finally come to, they'll realize that their sponsors "got little" after propping their asses behind the wheel and took the plates off before running into woods so vigorously to get away from the wreckage that they sprained that ass from the exertion.

*TWAAAAANNNNGG! OHHHH! THIS ASS! KEEP RUNNIN' FOOL!*

Lovin' This shit!

They forget that THEY were the ones who cocked the traffic signals at the intersection of Clout and Fuckery... Hilarity ensued when they forgot and grenaded each other in the intersection...

(Ghetto traffic control = Green sometimes DOES means STOP! :^)

>middle finger salute to the assholes formerly out of 340 S. Western<

*SCREEE! KA-MUTHAFUCKIN'-BLOOEY!*

Cop #1: "HOOOLEEEYYY... DID YA SEE THAT SHIT? Hey! They're fighting!"

Cop #2: "Soothe yourself rookie! Let them fools fight... This shit ain't nothin' but the undercard, son!"

*Laughter... Howling 350 & Tail-lights of the '85 Chevy dancing madly into the 3am darkness.*

May this be a small step toward the destruction of the clouted class.

Ahhh, good old Adrienne Stanley. Clout had her at the rank of lieutenant with 8 years on the job. For a minute, she was assigned to 011 on 3rd watch where (big surprise coming) she couldn't pronounce the simplest of names as she tried to read roll call. Ain't that right "Babygirl" Cathy R. and Big J? Seems like the perfect storm of the chickens coming home to roost may finally be upon us. The CPD may now be getting the black eye that demands we be turned over to federal receivership. All that'll remain to be seen is if any of the "Bossholes" (credit to WSIDN) named in the suit suffer any negative consequences. I'd love to see every last one of those clout c*^ksuckers have to pay out tall coin and/or lose pensions. One can dream I guess.

What experience do they have as school administrators? Oh wait, are they getting a stipend for their time? This is why this city, county and state along with federal govt are in such fiscal shambles; the same recycled no experience hacks making decisions outside their area of knowledge. Why? Because they are in the political click and their buddies will slide them into 100,000.00 dollar a year positions "cause were're friends". Why is Forest Calypool, life long county board member hack in charge of the CTA? His vast transportation experience? Why is Charles William, a former police supervisor who was shown the door, in charge of Streets and Sanitation? His many traffic stops he put on CTA buses? Why not add Jerry Springer and Oprah to the committee.

Was in Narcotics. Witnessed po's securing search warrants on information that was flat out made up. In one instance, they claimed to intel was gained through an undercover buy. There was no such buy. I couldn't believe it, when the po came back with a signed warrant. My 1st thought was "He lied to a judge to get this warrant". Another team member and I went to the commander and expressed our concerns, because we weren't going to jail for anybody else's bullshit. Three periods later, I was suddenly and without explanation out of the unit. My team member got fed up and bidded back to a district. I have no doubt that one day Narcotics will be the source of a HUGE scandal. Those pos are under a lot pressure to produce warrants. The result is that some chose to play fast & loose with procedures.

Oklahomans Prepare for New Law That Will Make Guns a Common Sight
OKLAHOMA CITY — Bryan Hull will soon strap his Smith & Wesson .357 Magnum revolver to his hip and meet his armed friends at Beverly’s Pancake House here. They have no interest in the cash register. They just want a late-night breakfast.
A new law takes effect on Thursday in Oklahoma — anyone licensed to carry a concealed firearm can choose to carry a weapon out in the open, in a belt or shoulder holster, loaded or unloaded. Five minutes after midnight Thursday, Mr. Hull and his friends — supporters of the Oklahoma Open Carry Association, a gun rights group — will mark the occasion by wearing their unconcealed handguns while dining at Beverly’s, a 24-hour restaurant. . . . . .

Do not get too excited over this one. These two do nothings are suing because they say Tina Skahill promised them promotions if they shared knowledge of the Watts case. You know, because every person who accidentally uncovers police wrongdoing gets promised a promotion. When the time line comes out on how this went down, a few emails released, and a few FBI Agents who testify that these two have basically been ghost payrollers for the last 3- 4 years, pretty sure the media won't cover how there wasn't actually a code of silence, just two people looking out for themselves NOT trying to do the right thing. They basically tried to extort merit promotions. They are lying and it is going to be easy to prove. Let them testify, then hit them with perjury charges in Fed court!

No one covered up anything and these two mutts were SENT to the FBI by the Department to assist in already ongoing joint investigation. They brought nothing to the table and Skahill messed up by letting them get involved in the first place. Now we have this nonsense, and all the police haters are out in full force. These two should be very ashamed of themselves and are going to look like complete fools when this is done.

Don't know anything about the officers who filed the complaint but if even half of that is true, I hope they find some retribution. Unfortunately from what I've seen on this job I have little faith that justice will be served to these supervisors and exempts. They must make a pact with lucifer as a prerequisite for the position because they are untouchable even in the worst circumstances. Nothing ever happens to them. They sure have no hesitation giving a blue shirt the ax, especially in minor instances. What slays me is the streaming videos featuring these bosses who serve up lectures to everyone in roll call on professionalism and ethics; they are the same ones who did all the dirty shit back in the early days of their careers that we now have to pay for- unfucking real. I haven't hear of one boss that does not have a second house somewhere- wonder where all that extra money came from??? And no, it's not from hard work and a second job. I can't look at any of them with an ounce of respect knowing how all of them got their rank with some connection. And now with McCarthy as superintendent, all these supervisors are just "yes" men with not an ounce of independent thought or question in their empty heads. If they all got swept away with hurricane Sandy tomorrow no one would miss them, and the department would be better off.

All they have said is we are working 12 hours days, but no start times. The date of the election has been known since elections started, but the A-HOLES at 35th still can't figure out a plan or give us the courtesy of letting us know at least a few days ahead. Coppers are fuming over this and taking it as a big FU to our familes and lives, from 35th St!

At least 90% of us have to plan child care or just let our loved ones know what's going on. A lot of us have both parents working jobs. Letting us know on monday is BS, so next time you stroke us and tell us "how we are the backbone of the department and family first crap," just save it because we aren't falling for that BS anymore. Is it that hard to figure out a fucking start time and let us know? Less than 24 hours notice is some real BS!

Amen to “Average Savage”

Those of you that have been plaintiffs in civil lawsuits know that many times the allegations in the complaint bear little or no resemblance to the facts…

You know that very often the plaintiffs are not of high moral character…

You know that the plaintiffs frequently have ulterior motives…

You know that for decades the City of Chicago has routinely paid large settlements without regard to the merits of the suit, but rather to just make the plaintiffs go away, thus creating a climate that encourages frivolous lawsuits…

You know that almost always the mainstream media hypes the incident beyond all reasonable proportion…

You know that honest, honorable police officers have had their names dragged through the mud, only to be exonerated at a later date with little or no notice by the media.

To those of you who have fortunately escaped the tribulations that such an experience brings, don’t be quick to throw your brothers and sisters in blue under the bus. Just ask yourself; do you really know what the facts are?

I hope these two are tight, as they'll have to spend the rest of their miserable careers as partners. And probably on a beat car in some shitty district after this whole fiasco comes to an anticlimactic finale.

Their efforts are noble, however the energy expended was misdirected and will be shown to be a complete waste of time. There's protocol to follow, even when it comes to jamming up cops you THINK are dirty. If you can't read between the lines when it's extremely important to do so, you shouldn't be on this job. And if you haven't figured this much out in a dozen plus years on the CPD you're as pathetic as the bosses that hid you in all those clouted-heavy, do-nothing units the majority of your time on the job.

You have been blacklisted by your own hands. Enjoy the rest of your time here ostracized.

Hate the bosses all you want, and maybe deservedly, but those two toxic, miserable, cry baby hypocrites are NOT being harassed because they worked in IAD. If they get treated poorly by their co workers it's because they are both rotten human beings that no one can stand being around. Maybe now the shit they pulled in narc. will get out. Those two deserve whatever mal-treatment they receive.

Hey douchebag, FOP won't say anything til the time is right to say something. Everything, as your stupid ass alluded to without even knowing why, is ALLEGED at this juncture. And as far as the mayor and the Supe are concerned, we'll all see just how they parlay this into something to smear the entire rank and file since it's contract talks time. If you had any common sense or time on the job you'd be aware of how this shit works.

Better to remain silent and be thought a fool than to open your mouth (or in your case, submit an ignorant post) and remove all doubt.

This is why you should stick to online gaming and telling war stories that you've never actually lived.

How about what Kirby did to the copper from 014 who was set to testify against the idiots from SOS who held him at gunpoint during one of their famous home invasions. They had a pos informant make up a brutality complaint against him with NO witnesses and Kirby and Co sustained it and gave the PO 30 pending as a way to attack his credibility when he testified against them. Too bad she forgot to dig the cigarette out of the ashtray when the POS SOS guys left. DNA put him away for a long time. Not sure what happened to the copper from 014.

My first question is - what took so long for them to file this lawsuit?

Second, I realize that there is always more than what the news says, but the only scandalous part of this lawsuit that I understood was Adrienne Stanley telling them that she don't want to know about a corrupt cop. They had the supposed balls to be so upset with Adrienne and CPD that they took "their" case to the FBI. So why didn't they have the balls to tell the US Attorney what Adrienne said? Because the AUSA would have loved to get a high ranking cpd offier on official misconduct.

Other than that, the case was investigated and adjudicated, and these two cops have been working in nice spots since then. So what gives that suddenly they now got the balls to jump on the Kirby bandwagon and file a lawsuit?

I totally agree. They might not be the best coppers around, but even the dumbest copper knows corruption when he/she sees it.

Totally agree it's a tacit approval. The only reason for someone to be pissed at these two, especially in this day and age, is if there allegations are false. And you don't go to the FBI with false allegations--why on earth would you? There must have been something there, because making the decision to walk through those FBI doors takes some heavy-duty contemplation.

I suspect that most of you who claim to know or have worked with these officers are lying through your teeth. Same shit different decade.

Now my guess is that the basic outline provided in the newspapers regarding this lawsuit is correct.

Two cops suspected, RIGHTLY, that some other cops were corrupt. I'm talking in bed with drug dealers corrupt. Not getting a happy ending massage on your day off corrupt.

They went to the exempts who responded in typical see no evil, hear no evil, speak no evil CPD fashion.

Anyone here remember Terry Hilliard bringing in Polish speaking FBI agents to take down a group of corrupt cops on the NW side back around 2000 or so? They were literally stealing the wallets from drivers during traffic stops.

Here's a not so good link.

http://www.lib.jjay.cuny.edu/len/2000/10.15/

Why did Hilliard bring in the feds? Was he a suckhole too? It's a rhetorical question. I know what some of you brave warriors will say. Unlike Hilliard I doubt most of you know what's it's like to be shot.

He likely did it because he didn't feel he could trust his own department to deal with the corruption. Loose lips sink ships and all that.

Then likely one or two exempts decide to retaliate against the whistleblowers. I doubt it's the number of exempts in the lawsuit. The leadership of the CPD couldn't handle a two big wheel funeral never mind organize a conspiracy that large.

If the basics of what's outlined in the lawsuit are correct I hope some exempts "retire" and I hope that these officers get paid and merit promoted.

I'd rather see them promoted than some alderman's brother.

To those badmouthing these two cops a hardy fuck you from me to you.

Oh, now I get it. It's a personality contest, and has nothing to do with corruption. So if you like the officers reporting it, it's alright with you, but only if you approve of them. If they have evidence of corruption and you don't like them, then it's not alright, and they must be full of it. Really? You didn't go to college, did you?

The Department has routinely worked with the Feds for decades on reigning in coppers that they were unable to catch on there own. The Feds have more resources and MUCH more lax rules on things like phone taps, pen registers and evidence retrieval. Plus, what do you fear more, a knock on the door from IAD or the FBI? Don't kid yourself, IAD has been involved in the police corruption cases and worked with the FBI hand in hand. They have the resources and an open check book. You try to make everything look so sinister when in reality the CPD is using the FBI as a tool to complete the task of routing out the scumbags who get on this job. Sorry to burst your bubble with the truth. You'd be surprised by the number of IAD/FBI investigations that have gone on in the last 10 years. Many lead no where, which is GOOD. Some are a never ending mess, like the tow truck shit that for some reason guys STILL can't get in their head's that it is NOT alright to take a payment from a tow company to allow them to tow from a crash. DUH!!! As for these two knuckle heads in question, wait and see. The truth is NOT on their side. There is a reason so many know them, at least of them.

In April 2007, Echeverria and Spalding made the decision to contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). They met with Special Agent "P.S.", the agent assigned to the Bureau's public corruption unit from April 2007 to August 2008. They discussed intelligence on Watts. And, in August 2008, they met with the FBI to share intelligence again and were recruited to work on "Operation Brass Tax" and report criminal conduct by officers, like Sgt. Watt, to the FBI.
The two officers were assured their identities would remain "confidential" while they worked for the FBI.
In August 2010, Commander James O' Grady received paperwork seeking approval for a "confidential informant." He learned the application came from Echeverria and Spalding and refused to approve the application. That same month he participated in a meeting with another commander, Nicholas Roti, where the identities of the two officers were discussed. O'Grady and Roti both said they would not be letting Echeverria or Spalding work for any units under their command
Chicago Police Chief Juan Rivera disclosed the identities of Echeverria and Spalding to Deputy Chief Ernie Brown, a friend of Watts, in December. Rivera told the two officers Brown had told everyone, including O'Grady. Both of them should expect to be on the "receiving end" of "severe retaliation."
The lawsuit further indicates in April 2011 Deputy Superintendent Beatrice Cuello sought to confirm whether the two officers were working on some kind of an undercover investigation. Deputy Chief of Police Debra Kirby denied knowing there was any investigation going on, not wanting to be connected to the "controversial investigation." This led to Cuello kicking the two officers out of their unit, Unit 543, because she thought they were lying about their involvement in the Watts investigation.By September 2011, Echeverria and Spalding tried to file a complaint of retaliation. Police commander Adrian Stanley did not want to have anything to do with this. Despite a general order in the department requiring them to report retaliation, they were encouraged not to make their treatment an issue. On September 14, they were told by Stanley to just leave it alone.
On September 20, they complained to Rivera and insisted an investigation be started. Echeverria said, "Since no one at CPD will do anything, we need to take this to an outside agency." To which Rivera replied, "Look, everyone is against you so you don't want to piss me off."
Spalding began to experience "severe anxiety attacks" because of the "hostile work environment" Both were given new assignments and made to sit "idly for eight hours a day until March 16, 2012." Then, they were detailed to "Fugitive Apprehension" under supervision of the US Marshall's Task Force Team. They were made to go after "unknown turnstile jumpers" or people who were drunk in public.
Lieutenant Robert Cesario had them removed from the US Marshall's Task Force on June 20. Cesario said they were not making enough arrests or bringing enough "priority cases." He said they had "brought this baggage" on themselves. Sergeant Maurice Barnes then told the two officers he didn't want to tell "your daughter you're coming home in a box because the team won't help you on the street."
The two officers were put on a "night fugitive apprehension team. They worked from 4 pm to 12:30 am. And then, on August 17, Spalding was "barred" from entering Chicago Police Headquarters at Homan Square, where her locker was located.

In April 2007, Echeverria and Spalding made the decision to contact the Federal Bureau of Investigation (FBI). They met with Special Agent "P.S.", the agent assigned to the Bureau's public corruption unit from April 2007 to August 2008. They discussed intelligence on Watts. And, in August 2008, they met with the FBI to share intelligence again and were recruited to work on "Operation Brass Tax" and report criminal conduct by officers, like Sgt. Watt, to the FBI.
The two officers were assured their identities would remain "confidential" while they worked for the FBI.
In August 2010, Commander James O' Grady received paperwork seeking approval for a "confidential informant." He learned the application came from Echeverria and Spalding and refused to approve the application. That same month he participated in a meeting with another commander, Nicholas Roti, where the identities of the two officers were discussed. O'Grady and Roti both said they would not be letting Echeverria or Spalding work for any units under their command

You went to the Commander? If you didn't express your concerns to the sergeant or lieutenant first, you are part of the problem.

It doesn't take three periods to dump someone over that. It also sounds that you were "dumped" to another unit.

Might have to call BULLSHIT on this one.

Are you implying that bypassing certain components of the chain of command are more important than the corruption that was being reported?? Are you for real??? Must be a stupid friggin whiteshirt...

Yes I am a friggin whiteshirt but far from stupid, unlike you.

If you use the chain of command and able to prove that they did not take action, your position is much stronger.

Pay attention to the lesson, there may be a test later. OOPS--I just remembered, you must have flunked the test to make sergeant.
