Discipline Revamp?

  • In the wake of the City Council’s approval of almost $33 million to settle two police misconduct cases, city officials on Friday announced an outside review of the disciplinary process for cops.

    Police Supt. Garry McCarthy and Corporation Counsel Stephen Patton said experts will look into what’s being done to prevent police misconduct, how it’s reported and how it’s investigated. Mayor Rahm Emanuel called for the review several months ago, they said.

    A.T. Kearney, a management consultant firm, will conduct the review for free, Patton said. Former Assistant U.S. Attorney Ron Safer, who is with the law firm Schiff Hardin, will focus on the legal issues surrounding police discipline.

    Last week, the City Council approved a $10.25 million settlement for a wrongfully imprisoned man and $22.5 million for a mentally ill woman who was attacked and left severely disabled after police released her in a high-crime area.

    And in November, a federal jury said the city should pay a female bartender $850,000 for the beating she suffered from off-duty Chicago Police Officer Anthony Abbate.

    The jury found a “code of silence” in the department protects rogue officers like Abbate. Future lawsuits against the city could cite the verdict as evidence of a “pattern and practice” of police misconduct, legal experts say.
As covered here and elsewhere, the supposed "code of silence" protects only the politically connected. We've covered dozens of cases and everyone has a dozen more where bosses and the favored few have cases swept under the rug until someone somehow reveals where the bodies are actually buried and then the city wrings its hands a wonders how this could have happened. Abbate is just the best known because there was video.

The multi-million dollar payouts are a direct result of Shortshanks's desire to settle everything so lawyers and law firms got rich. J-Fled, for all his faults and cowardice, proved that if Corp Counsel actually fought a large percentage of these suits, they won and saved the city money as a result. Rahm, in his wisdom, discontinued this practice, in part because outside firms he didn't control, got paid. And guess where we're headed again? Paying out massive lump sums.

But any current exempt member who is part of this disciplinary restructuring ought to be asked about what they've helped cover up in the not so distant past.

I'm not worried about what the city pays out. The best thing for the copper being sued for BS is for the city to pay out. You dipshits that think its a good idea for the city to fight these lawsuits have never been sued. Have never had to turn over all of your financial info in case the jury comes back with punitive damages. Stop asking for the city to fight this shit. All you're doing is putting the financial future of police officers in the hands of an Illinois, Cook County jury. Wake the fuck up. Let the city settle and pay out as quickly as possible. Our goal should be the protection of the coppers not the city's coffers. And for the short sighted schmucks who'll argue, if they fight these, they'll be fewer in the long run, great. How about you volunteer to be named in the first dozen or so that go to a jury trial? Didn't think so. I've been sued three times. Only once did I have to give up my finances. The city settled on all for pittance of what the original amount was and the accompanying CR's were unfounded. Best thing that could of happened for me and the other coppers. Was it over bullshit? Of course. I don't give a fuck. Either the city settles, or ya put your balls in the hands of 12 democrats from cook county.

I don't understand the false imprisonment, why are the police being sued? Wasn't the offender found guilty in COOK COUNTY COURTS by a jury of his peers? Why sue the lowly PO's that made the arrest? Why not sue the judges, prosecuting attorneys, or the jury that came back with guilty verdict?

Revamp discipline??? There is no discipline in the CPD...that's the fuckin' problem!!! Maybe introduce discipline to the CPD. However, the only way to do it is from the top down. Jody Weiss tried to do it by getting rid of all the Commanders. The problem with that strategy is that they can't help you if they are no longer around. A better strategy would be to punish supervisors for the minor wrongdoing of the people under their supervision. A few supervisors receive punishments for bullshit and they will finally start to do their jobs. If a P/O is caught without a beat tag, nametag or star and the Sgt gets punished for it will result in Sgts ensuring that all P/O's have the proper uniform and equipment. If a beat car is found outside their district in a tavern, their Sgt takes a punishment...guess what?? It won't be allowed to happen again in that district. Of course, the field Lieutenants would have to do their jobs in order to enforce this stuff. There are no bosses with the desire to do anything anymore, so it will never happen. RIP CPD.

Will these "experts" be looking into what's being done to prevent police-related:

- drinking to excess on a regular basis?

- domestic abuses?

- berating professional athletes?

- challenging subordinates to fistfights?

- romantic involvement with subordinates/marital infidelity?

- the manipulation of crime statistics via Compstat?

- the erroneous use of department evidence to bolster a democratic agenda?

They just keep adding rules and making the simplest things harder and harder to do, making even diligent cops shy away from doing their jobs because it's too damn much work to lock someone up that gets out so fast even after a felony conviction. It's like we're playing full contact pro football but we wear no pads and the bad guys have flags so they can't be tackled. But they're wearing full pads and have no rules.

The media acts like CPD transported this female to a bad neighborhood and kicked her out after locking her up in a fashion that is done with no one else. The people responsible for sending this goof to the hospital might have made an error in not sending her to be psyched. But the media acts like this female was taken there and dumped, but no one else ever was. If you get locked up where she got locked up and are a female, you went to the 02nd district lockup in all cases. Is no one responsible for their own behavior any longer? Is no one required to have common sense any longer? Are all these people incapable of sensing danger and sensible enough to act accordingly?

I'm sure she never saw a project before in her life? I watch a New York City made movie and the projects there look like Chicago projects. I'm sure the projects in LA resemble them also. They were federally funded buildings that look much the same everywhere they were.

In the meantime some of you assholes will continue to bring in numbers for this department. If you read some of the cases pending with the Chicago Police Board those situations can happen to anybody on this job.

If someone does something outrageous (take a bribe, beat the shit out of someone for no justifiable reason, etc.) then they don't deserve to be on this job.

But to fuck over the police over something they can not control is beyond me. In the case of the mentally ill woman. She was arrested. Her prints came out clear. She was released/signed out. She was free to go. The police can not hold her after that. If the parents were so concerned then why did they allow her to travel to another state without a concerned party looking after her?

Let's think about this for a second. Yes, adults should be responsible for themselves, no question about it. No, we can't just hold someone in a police facility or anywhere else for safe keeping against their will.

That all being said, this women was arrested in the relatively safe confines of Midway Airport. It is the unfortunate policy of CPD to transport the female prisoners to 002 for detention. So yes, that is a big difference and it is the city basically dropping people miles from where they were supposed to be. I laugh at the "crime ridden" or "lions cage at the zoo" comments, what does this say about the neighborhoods?? Exactly, screw the race cards, it was a black neighborhood and apparently it should be known that no outsiders should be allowed in the area. I cringe every time I stop a mutt and he says "I can go where ever I want it is a free country," yeah and that only goes one way.

I will defend it. She, an adult with a questionable lifestyle, that was arrested. She was taken to the police facility used for that arrest. She was bonded and released in a secure police facility.

From what I read, several police officers went out of their way to help her along the way. Let's get this straight. It would have been illegal to keep her against her will after bonding, plain and simple.

Given her chosen lifestyle, would you like to be the copper who took it upon him/her self to throw her in a car against her will and take her to a hospital? The way she chose to dress and represent herself I can imagine the headline.

I fell bad for her. There are bad things that happen to people. Why is her trouble foisted on to the Chicago tax payers back? Because the lawyers make money doing this. Hate the lawyers. Hate them all. They are killing the Country.

The media needs to understand the two tiered discipline that's been going on in this department for a long,long time.
If you're one of the clouted things get swept under the rug etc.
If you're common folk, aka unclouted, they drop the hammer on you. The examples are countless but think of Blinky getting caught owning a drug/gun house. JFRAUD immediately absolved her of any culpability. The examples go on and on. The media needs to expose this flawed disciplinary system.

The media has intentionally misled the public by repeatedly stating that the woman was dumped off at Robert Taylor Homes projects. She was not. She was released from the lock up at 51st Wentworth. She would have been allowed to remain in the lobby of the police station if she did not want to travel into sub Saharin Chicago ghetto. Are the Chicago Police allowed to let any non African out of custody of any of the police stations if they are in a black neighborhood? This makes for a good news story...especially when the police contract is up. Ben Bradley from Ch. 7..you suck. You and your buck teeth love to bad mouth the police.

I think this may answer many of the questions we have concerning the direction McStreetlightassassin is taking our department. I heard this from a friend who works in 18. I got the real short version, but maybe someone has the full story. A midnight burglary car assigned to Michigan Av responds to a call of tagging on Michigan Av about a week ago. Catches the offender. Recovers the paint can. Gets felony approval for criminal damage to property. Instead of an Honorable, McStreetlightassassin wants him SPAR'd for not "preventing" the crime. If that's the case, I would expect the Supe to eat a bullet once homicides hit 100 as an acknowledgment that his gang strategy is a failure. By the way, I recognize the irony of McStreetlighassassin and "Honorable" in the same sentence.

I was working in Mass Transit when this incident with the woman took place, and I can tell you Plain and Simple; the Issue was RACE! Race dictates everything in Chicago, but like the proverbial 500 lb Gorilla, we Pretend it is not the issue. a. The Black Female desk crew in 002 resented that this White Girl had issues and ignored the calls from her parents to get her medical assistance. b. Nobody wants to admit it but when a White person finds themselves in many black areas, they are going to be robbed, raped or killed. That is reality, every cop who has worked these areas can recall an incident where a White Hype has been raped, robbed or murdered. Then there are the Whites who have car breakdowns and get victimized. The only one willing to tell the truth is the federal judge who said leaving her in that area was like putting her in the "Lions cage at Brookfield Zoo." He was correct, it is a zoo because the residents are savages, and everyone who pays taxes in Cook County contributes to the situation. Everyone on that desk should be fired, but that would admit that they acted out of racial hate for Whites. "G"

To 1256am, first of all bi polar is treated with medication and as long as you are taking your prescribed dosage you can be functional. The lady was taken off a plane for causing a disturbance, she showed signs of suffering from a mental condition. It's possible she may of skipped a dose and had some type of breakdown. Bottom line is the city failed to do their part . She should of been taken to the hospital for observation. Reports say there were no wagons available to transport her to the hospital, , so she was locked up instead. Her parents called the station and asked them not to release her and that she was bi polar. Whoever answered that call could of easily informed the W/C of the situation. This is not considered BABYSITTING, it's call doing your job. Either she should of been transported to the hospital after the call from her parents or held until her parents arrived. I understand how some situations may feel like your babysitting but this particular incident was not that at all. You have a mental who was denied care she needed, because there wasn't a wagon available.

First, the deputy chiefs trying to explain why no watch commander is a bad idea - and getting rebuked by McMoron and his bitch Miniotis, then Walter Green's pretty accurate description of the "gold star mentality", to now Dave Jarmusz getting dumped because he called out McCarthy on his ineptitude.

So...

The ship of state, (City of Chicago and CPD) is sinking...

There's no disputing this fact and there is universal agreement as to the root and contributory causes; in spite of the culture of denial in the face of overwhelming evidence.

The best thing the people in charge can come up with is, *We need more discipline for the chumps shoveling coal even though they're up to their asses in sea water. Chain the exits so they can't get to the upper decks. That'll show 'em.*

The people who rubbed the ship of state against the ice berg have long since looted the Purser's safe and were rowed to another ship...

>Pffft!<

Nothing. But. NOISE!

The equivalent of a room full of madly clacking, wind-up dentures and ball bearings bouncing around while circus clowns in CPD exempt member uniforms and suicide vests twist colorful balloon...

>SMH<

Pure distraction from the fact that these smart people in charge are all out of ideas.

"Discipline Revamp?"

"Police Accountability?"

"Procedural Justice & Police Legitimacy?"

No answers to address the REAL problems in this city but the people in charge are ALL OVER the representative problem of "out of control Police."

They're managing the fuck out of this "crisis," aren't they?

As far as these big settlements are concerned?

The parallel story about then CCSA and future mayor Richard M. Daley's role in the Burge drama, WILL NEVER BE EXPOSED!

This whole dust-up is about creating separation to protect HIM. At all costs. Period.

The young lady who bonded out of the Deuce and was lured then set upon by savages?

Putting pity aside...
The question was raised and NEVER satisfactorily answered by her family? If this woman was such a risk to herself and had a history of "episodes," how on earth was it that she was allowed air and opportunity to get beyond the reach of her family? Especially since they're oh so very concerned?

We venture the family is full of shit and exploited this tragic failure of common human decency that ended with her going out of that window.

This is simply another case of, "well, in hindsight, the cops coulda did SUMTHIN'."

Just like the case with that Beller maniac had circumstance been slightly different...

Revamp discipline??? There is no discipline in the CPD...that's the fuckin' problem!!! Maybe introduce discipline to the CPD. However, the only way to do it is from the top down. Jody Weiss tried to do it by getting rid of all the Commanders. The problem with that strategy is that they can't help you if they are no longer around. A better strategy would be to punish supervisors for the minor wrongdoing of the people under their supervision. A few supervisors receive punishments for bullshit and they will finally start to do their jobs. If a P/O is caught without a beat tag, nametag or star and the Sgt gets punished for it will result in Sgts ensuring that all P/O's have the proper uniform and equipment. If a beat car is found outside their district in a tavern, their Sgt takes a punishment...guess what?? It won't be allowed to happen again in that district. Of course, the field Lieutenants would have to do their jobs in order to enforce this stuff. There are no bosses with the desire to do anything anymore, so it will never happen. RIP CPD.

the last thing i want is to go back to supv fucking w you at standup roll calls and sgts getting into your shit at every one of your jobs. there is no going back to anything because the mayor, city council, and all politicians have forever gutted this job. in my district, the sgts are regularly talking shit about each other to p/o's. that NEVER used to happen. its not a good sign.

**********************************************************************

Have either of you ever dealt with any 2nd District watch bosses, desk crews or lockup crews previous to the date of the incident? If you had, you would know the true story.

But her mistreatment started before she arrived at 002. From the moment she had first contact with the CPD through her release from custody, this young woman and her family were victimized by members of our organization.

The members involved were like pimps for her rapist. Their indifference and total disregard for a standard of reasonable care, delivered her into harm's way.

Even $100 million is not sufficient for how the victim and her family were treated by the CPD and the injuries sustained by the victim because of the CPD. Many CPD members deserved to be discharged for their conduct in this incident and prosecuted. I do not know how the guilty members can sleep at night, but they must because of a skewed thought process. This incident is more heinous than the Abatte fiasco.

This girl was in town from CA for a stripper job and some guys saw here and she went back with them to their place where another guy saw her and tossed her out window when he was done with her. I don't know if it is true, but, he is suppose to be out of jail already! This is the same girl kicked out of the airport and denied boarding by SouthWest Airlines. She caused a huge disturbance at the airport after accusing a blind man of "faking blindness" to pre-board the plane ahead of her. She ended up at the Orange line and CTA officers do not have cars. D/T and 008th District would not let the CTA officer have cars. They said to take her to the hospital in personal vehicles. Arrest was the only way to have her moved in CPD vehicles, it seems.

Why did the parents not accompany her, if they were so concerned. They were concerned at the depositions and on TV? Why was she in Chicago, oh, the plaintiffs attorney did not mention this, it would have prejudiced the case? Are the police mental health professionals are they required to take criminals to the mental hospitals? I checked my academy handouts and the answer would appear to be no? How can a judge say essentially, black people can not resist white women - is this not racist sounding. Why was the guy who tossed her out the window not in the lawsuit, the airport security police, or the airlines. For sure, the airline denied her a return to her parents in CA. The airline would fight the suit. The dude who tossed her out the window has no money. So blame the City. Keeping her in the lockup would have been a violation of her constitutional rights, yes or no?

For all the troops out there, Compstat Commandant said he wants ANOV's to "be through the roof" by March. You will all be the lucky viewers of a new training video on the subject.

And he wants the ANOV's written for pissers, gamblers, and DOPW, so when the fines aren't paid you can lock up people the next time you see them. Is this guy delusional or what?

He said if the members of the tac teams aren't getting the job done then they need to be replaced.

He also wants contact cards to "be through the roof" by March, and you better be out of your cars and "hands on". 3 contact cards a day is UNACCEPTABLE!

According to McDumbo, Jan/Feb/March are when "we" should be "setting the standards" for later in the year.

Heard it straight from the horse's ass at Compstat on Thursday. I think he actually believes the shit he's trying to peddle. Treat the blue shirts like dogs and yet expect them to produce these huge numbers for him. What incentives has he given? None.

Good luck with that. I wouldn't write another ANOV ever. Or contact card. Hand in 10 blank contact cards with 'REFUSED' on them.

The media acts like CPD transported this female to a bad neighborhood and kicked her out after locking her up in a fashion that is done with no one else. The people responsible for sending this goof to the hospital might have made an error in not sending her to be psyched. But the media acts like this female was taken there and dumped, but no one else ever was. If you get locked up where she got locked up and are a female, you went to the 02nd district lockup in all cases. Is no one responsible for their own behavior any longer? Is no one required to have common sense any longer? Are all these people incapable of sensing danger and sensible enough to act accordingly?

I'm sure she never saw a project before in her life? I watch a New York City made movie and the projects there look like Chicago projects. I'm sure the projects in LA resemble them also. They were federally funded buildings that look much the same everywhere they were.

"The media acts like CPD transported this female to a bad neighborhood and kicked her out after locking her up".

Unfortunately, the CPD did transport this young woman from Midway airport to the 2nd District lockup. She was from California and didn't know the area. Plus, and this is important, she was a nut case who's parents had called and spoke with CPD Officers asking them to hold her for her own safety till they arrived. She apparently wasn't able to care for herself, yet she was released into a gang controlled area, much like throwing a rabbit into a wolves den. The tragic outcome was the result of thoughtless people who didn't give a shit, as long as they felt that they were following the rules. Well, imagine that this was your daughter. Would you want her released into the shit hole neighborhood around the 2nd? I know I wouldn't. All it takes is a little compassion and common sense on the part of the officers who deal with these people and none of this would have happened.

"...But any current exempt member who is part of this disciplinary restructuring ought to be asked about what they've helped cover up in the not so distant past. ..."

As a Patrolman, Sergeant and Lieutenant I have sat on many of a Complaint Review Panel. The panel didn't have any real power but did make recommendations and could be cited if the officers took the department to court.

We would read the O.P.S. (later I.P.R.A.) reports at the meetings and then listen to the Officer and his/her attorney and a Department Advocate.

It was shocking to see the lousy investigations in those reports. Some would lead you to the conclusion that this was going to be "Exonerated" only to find it "Sustained" at the end.

On a couple of occasions I called the D.C.s of the Officers involved and asked them, "Did you actually read this?" Of course they wouldn't say no, my blueshirt secretary does that for me.

I have been retired for a long time but things have not changed. Why is it that attorneys who prosecute the case for the city cannot be sued? We as street cops have to take the word of our witnesses but often the prosecutors learn that the defendant is not guilty and still they prosecute the case. They never drop the case they just want to chalk up another win. Then when it falls apart years later and an innocent guy gets out of prison it is the police officers who get sued but not the attorneys. Make the states attorneys accountable too and let them put their reputations and personal income on the line like we do.

Just look at the people who headed up IAD over the years and you can see why it always has been a pocket of inefficiency, corruption, cronyism and outright unfair. I worked there for a few years and I can tell you stories as can everyone who has ever worked there. There are no standards for anything, from selection of those who are sent there as investigators, to how cases are investigated to how they are finalized. Everything is subject to influence. I really do not know how you are going to change that. Only an outsider probably can fix it.

Unfortunately, the CPD did transport this young woman from Midway airport to the 2nd District lockup. She was from California and didn't know the area. Plus, and this is important, she was a nut case who's parents had called and spoke with CPD Officers asking them to hold her for her own safety till they arrived.
******************
I don't qualify "bipolar" as being a nut case. Being pissed off one second the normal the next is basically the MO of every DC I've met in the last 20 years.

And in case you forgot, the CPD can't arbitrarily "hold onto" adults after they no longer have legal reason to after their prints clear and they bond. You can't hold someone for days refusing to bond them out, and you can't force them to sit in a lockup because it's against the law.

Neither could we have forced her into a psych ward against her will as she presented no danger to herself at the time.

So, either way, the CPD would have been fucked by these people.

Because their daughter's "bipolar" excuse caused her to decide NOT to call a fucking cab OR her parents when she got out. Instead, she went for walkies in the ghetto.

That ain't OUR fault.

Have either of you ever dealt with any 2nd District watch bosses, desk crews or lockup crews previous to the date of the incident? If you had, you would know the true story.

But her mistreatment started before she arrived at 002. From the moment she had first contact with the CPD through her release from custody, this young woman and her family were victimized by members of our organization.

The members involved were like pimps for her rapist. Their indifference and total disregard for a standard of reasonable care, delivered her into harm's way.

Even $100 million is not sufficient for how the victim and her family were treated by the CPD and the injuries sustained by the victim because of the CPD. Many CPD members deserved to be discharged for their conduct in this incident and prosecuted. I do not know how the guilty members can sleep at night, but they must because of a skewed thought process. This incident is more heinous than the Abatte fiasco.

Well said and exactly on point!

Here is the court case that details the facts of the woman's handling by CPD.
She was babbling incoherently and using her menstrual blood to write on the cells walls

The court doc speaks for itself that many of the POs involved did nothing to help and had to know what would happen when she walked out of the 002 front doors.

Right on track SCC. Take a look at the settlment of Alton Logan last week. He was legitimately found gulty of a double shooting od two off duty cops. Somehow Loevy and Loevy were able to tie Burge and his men to the case though they had nothing to do with it. Logan gets out and is a multi-millionaire.

The city could have won in the civil suit but they settled. Total disgrace by the city. Anthony Porter, Madsion Hobley, Ronald Kitchen, Aaron Patterson...all guilty but got out of prison.

Why doesn't the state's attorney go after David Protes at Northwestern's Innocence Project for the evidence they uncovered of obstruction of justice and the many claims of bribed testimony?

The reason is that once they do, the turht will come out about how badly they have betrayed their duty. It will be a mess.

Daley made Burge and the cops the fall guys. Keep up the good work, SCC.

The media acts like CPD transported this female to a bad neighborhood and kicked her out after locking her up in a fashion that is done with no one else. The people responsible for sending this goof to the hospital might have made an error in not sending her to be psyched. But the media acts like this female was taken there and dumped, but no one else ever was. If you get locked up where she got locked up and are a female, you went to the 02nd district lockup in all cases. Is no one responsible for their own behavior any longer? Is no one required to have common sense any longer? Are all these people incapable of sensing danger and sensible enough to act accordingly?

I'm sure she never saw a project before in her life? I watch a New York City made movie and the projects there look like Chicago projects. I'm sure the projects in LA resemble them also. They were federally funded buildings that look much the same everywhere they were.

I was working in Mass Transit when this incident with the woman took place, and I can tell you Plain and Simple; the Issue was RACE! Race dictates everything in Chicago, but like the proverbial 500 lb Gorilla, we Pretend it is not the issue. a. The Black Female desk crew in 002 resented that this White Girl had issues and ignored the calls from her parents to get her medical assistance. b. Nobody wants to admit it but when a White person finds themselves in many black areas, they are going to be robbed, raped or killed. That is reality, every cop who has worked these areas can recall an incident where a White Hype has been raped, robbed or murdered. Then there are the Whites who have car breakdowns and get victimized. The only one willing to tell the truth is the federal judge who said leaving her in that area was like putting her in the "Lions cage at Brookfield Zoo." He was correct, it is a zoo because the residents are savages, and everyone who pays taxes in Cook County contributes to the situation. Everyone on that desk should be fired, but that would admit that they acted out of racial hate for Whites. "G"

And didn't have any money.So just like the old saying goes" CASH or ASS " . Nothing is free. She tried to work it off but her bill was too high and she ran , but couldn't quite make it all the way down stairs, so she jumped ! Now CPD gets the blame for her ass. She wasn't that bi-polar to engage in that illegal activity ! CPD can't make a person voluntarily tell them that they're bi-polar or has some type of illness. And CPD can't hold you're ass against your will once it's time to bond out. Plus, the women's lock up facility at that time for 008 was 002 !

Sorry for pasting so much. But while I disagree with the amount awarded, and I can understand that we are not required to babysit those who are released, I'm still bothered that even though it wasn't required by G.O. or whatever, that no one showed more compassion for this girl.

It comes down to paying attention to details, and passing it along the chain of command. Is it written anywhere that we have to be compassionate? No. But could we have done better in this case rather than doing the bare minimum? I think so.

Is someone counting strawberries at 35th St? More importantly, is someone at City Hall gauging the feelings of the bosses at the police department?

I'm not worried about what the city pays out. The best thing for the copper being sued for BS is for the city to pay out. You dipshits that think its a good idea for the city to fight these lawsuits have never been sued. Have never had to turn over all of your financial info in case the jury comes back with punitive damages. Stop asking for the city to fight this shit. All you're doing is putting the financial future of police officers in the hands of an Illinois, Cook County jury. Wake the fuck up. Let the city settle and pay out as quickly as possible. Our goal should be the protection of the coppers not the city's coffers. And for the short sighted schmucks who'll argue, if they fight these, they'll be fewer in the long run, great. How about you volunteer to be named in the first dozen or so that go to a jury trial? Didn't think so. I've been sued three times. Only once did I have to give up my finances. The city settled on all for pittance of what the original amount was and the accompanying CR's were unfounded. Best thing that could of happened for me and the other coppers. Was it over bullshit? Of course. I don't give a fuck. Either the city settles, or ya put your balls in the hands of 12 democrats from cook county.

1/19/2013 12:24:00 AM


Yes, this officer (I prefer "Officer" to dipshit if you please) thinks it is better to fight lawsuits than to pay out and slink away, most definitely. If that gets you upset and nervous, too bad. Did you not know lawsuits might happen when you hired on?

Did some corp counsel or private attorney not tell you that there was a strong possibility that somewhere in the lawsuit process you will be required to divulge personal financial information?

Were you not prepared to do that? That is, had you not made preparations to move and protect your assets? Investment accounts in trust or wife's name, real estate in trust etc.

This is the nature of the job now. If you don't have the stomach for it then go to some assignment where your preferred arsenal of police equipment included ticket books and traffic court calendars. There is nothing wrong with that but if you are out there putting the beast away you can expect the beast to push back any way they can.

I derive much satisfaction out of prevailing in court, more so than if the City writes a check in my name. And I have so far always prevailed in causes of action against me, so far, only in Federal Court. Great feeling to win in Federal Court against the beast. I love to watch their lawyer walking out of court without a payday.

It's part of the job now. Take some Tums and/or Pepto Bismol. I've been fortunate both in being right so far and getting good attorneys assigned to my case.

Dare to struggle, dare to win.

"But to fuck over the police over something they can not control is beyond me. In the case of the mentally ill woman. She was arrested. Her prints came out clear. She was released/signed out. She was free to go. The police can not hold her after that. If the parents were so concerned then why did they allow her to travel to another state without a concerned party looking after her?"

As a parent of a mentally ill adult child you are obviously uninformed. At the age of 18 they are considered an adult. Parents have no rights over their treatment or medication management. If you try to gain guardianship over a bipolar adult you have more chances of winning the lotto. And medications don't always work. It is hard to explain such a complex illness over a blog, so I suggest you take CIT training to gain a better perspective. Parents are doing the best to keep their mentally ill kids safe from themselves and the community, unfortunately, there are not a lot of resources out there. We have no recourse when they are adult age. It is a very sad situation for everyone involved.

"The media acts like CPD transported this female to a bad neighborhood and kicked her out after locking her up".

Unfortunately, the CPD did transport this young woman from Midway airport to the 2nd District lockup. She was from California and didn't know the area. Plus, and this is important, she was a nut case who's parents had called and spoke with CPD Officers asking them to hold her for her own safety till they arrived. She apparently wasn't able to care for herself, yet she was released into a gang controlled area, much like throwing a rabbit into a wolves den. The tragic outcome was the result of thoughtless people who didn't give a shit, as long as they felt that they were following the rules. Well, imagine that this was your daughter. Would you want her released into the shit hole neighborhood around the 2nd? I know I wouldn't. All it takes is a little compassion and common sense on the part of the officers who deal with these people and none of this would have happened.
___________________________________
She was smart enough to buy a plane ticket, board a plane from L.A., travel here and cause a disturbance at Midway. She also refused all attempts to help her. Your thinking is typical liberal democrat conditioning, make people victims and blame society for it.
Don't worry democrat, the gov. will take care of you.
Her parents were only concerned after she got arrested. Now, they get a check courtesy of the gov. Do you now see how it works?

Am I missing something? If I am, you should jump in and tell me what I'm not seeing.

A white woman is arrested and then released, just as anyone else would be after bonding out.

She then walks, on her own, to the projects where a group of black barbarians rape her and drop her out of a high rise window attempting to kill her.

The media and the courts say it's not the blacks fault for raping and attempting to kill her by dropping her out of window, but the police for bonding her out.

Tell me where I am missing something.

You can't even work the desk and release someone on an Ibond without some bullshit happening in this city of savage animals.

Of course, the only way to protect against this happening again, is to eliminate all I-bonds.

Great answer, you make a good point. You get called a moron for making a mistake and including her in with the others who were given XO spots. Think we know who the moron is on this one

I don't understand the false imprisonment, why are the police being sued? Wasn't the offender found guilty in COOK COUNTY COURTS by a jury of his peers? Why sue the lowly PO's that made the arrest? Why not sue the judges, prosecuting attorneys, or the jury that came back with guilty verdict?

You cant be the police, at least I hope you aren't. Because they are exempt from the lawsuits

you have obviously been brainwashed, i bet nothing is ever your fault either

1/19/2013 05:47:00 PM

Your retort to my comment makes no sense, but no, I am not brainwashed. I am a parent and have 30+ years on the job. I bring compassion and a reasonable standard of care to both roles.

Once I bring a child into the world or take a citizen's freedom from them, compassion and a reasonable standard of care are both expected and demanded of me, not only by our profession and society in general, but by my own code of ethics.

Other commentors fault the parents of the victim. Now that is really foolish. Once they reach 18 years of age, you cannot let them do or deny them anything. You have no power over them, even if they are mentally ill. You can take your case to court, but success depends on the severity of their illness.

And, some others blame the victim. It is of no matter what her intentions were for coming to Chicago because once we took her freedom from her, we, all of us, regardless of rank, gender and race, are required to be professional, to be compassionate and to exercise a reasonable standard of care, if not only by law or general order, but by our law enforcement code of ethics.

The CPD members who had contact with her or were involved in the chain of events, failed the victim and her parents and the CPD organization. It is just that simple. Heads should have rolled. Their actions or lack of appropriate and responsible action, only widened the chasm of citizen mistrust towards the law enforcement profession and the CPD. We should all be ashamed, especially all the members involved.

It comes down to paying attention to details, and passing it along the chain of command. Is it written anywhere that we have to be compassionate? No. But could we have done better in this case rather than doing the bare minimum? I think so.

1/19/2013 08:40:00 PM

You are on the fence about the matter. Now read the Law Enforcement Code of Ethics. The answer comes under the heading,

"Primary Responsibilities of a Police Officer:

A police officer acts as an official representative of the government; he is required and trusted to work within the law. The officer's powers and duties are conferred by statute. The fundamental duties of a police officer include serving the community; safe-guarding lives and property; protecting the innocent; keeping the peace; and ensuring the rights of all to liberty, equality and justice."

There was no safe-guarding or protection of the innocent. Heads should roll.

SCC: how can you possibly defend the treatment of the mentally ill woman who was released at RTH? really??? this was good police work how??

If you could just point out the defending in this post please? We'd appreciate it, seeing as how we don't mention it even once. Thanks Asshat.

Hey Second city, take it easy... I don't believe the writer was directing his comment as a blame to your story. I think he or she was speaking in third sense, asking you to agree with his comment. I see asshat has been your favorite response. Get some rest, I think midnights might be taking a toe on you.

(she) was, rightly or wrongly, taking SCC's silence on the matter as condoning the dept's handling of the incident. i was really looking for some outrage at the actions that led to the city having to make such a huge payout. even nutjobs deserve to be treated with some kindness and respect. i get that a lot of newbie coppers read this page, it might be a good lesson for them to learn. you never know who you are dealing with, or where your action (or inaction) will lead. SOGs were not followed in this case, she should have been transported to a hospital. no wagon? take her in a squad. or find some other way. the end result is a permanently disabled person, and the taxpayers pay. and it could have all been avoided. call me an asshat again, that's how i feel.

This girls parents should pay out for letting her go out of state knowing she was of no mind to do so. The parents were uncaring and callous for not keeping her safe. And if this girl lived to be 100 she wouldn't earn 1 million dollars in her life and her maladies could be taken care of with less than 2 million which should be payed by her parents and the offenders who hurt her. Every other person on the street is bipolar.

At the minimum, the watch commanders on duty when this girl was in custody should have been fired.

Ultimately, they were responsible for her well being while she was in custody and upon her release.

Watch commander was a very important job on this department back in the day. If this department cut the heads off the bad ones, who spent their careers doing crossword puzzles, then this department would be in much better shape today.

I read a long conversation here between two people writing about lawsuits. Both were wrong.

First, if you are liable for punitive damages and the plaintiff tries to collect from you, the first thing the plaintiff will go after is your paycheck, not your home. Once the judge realizes you have manipulated your assets, he will grossly garnish your wages. If you are truly frightened of punitives, get an insurance policy.

Second, the best way to avoid punitives is to NOT cover up. Punitives are assessed against liars.

Third, make sure every arrest, no matter how minor, is ready for court. Follow your cases through court, even misdemeanors. Don't miss court dates. Write good paper. Testify clearly. If you're not going to work for a conviction, don't make arrests. Criminal convictions are the best way to avoid a lawsuit altogether.

Fourth, never jump on paper.

Finally, don't do silly shit. Take your job seriously. Avoid fools.

Now three of you are wrong. There is no insurance policy to protect you. Homeowners wont do it and an umbrella policy doesnt cover it only increases the coverage of your other policies.
Doctors, nurses, lawyers , etc have specific policies that cover them for certain job related judgments. Law enforcement does not. There is no policy to cover police officers for job related claims. If there were FOP, or insurance companies would offer them. Its just an urban myth that po's have been saying for years.

There is no malpractive insurance for the police. Umbrella and homehowners doesnt cover lawsuits at work. Also punitive awards arent covered by any insurance. By the definition of the word "punitive" its meant to punish you, not have an insurance company pay the award or settlement

A prominant trial lawyer once told me,"The reason the City loses or settles lawsuits against the Police are because the "A" law school student is hired by large prominant law firms, the "B" students to mid-level law firms, "C" student with political help become Assistant State Atts, and "D" students with a lot of help become Corp Councils or Public Defenders." Think about it. These are the people who are suppose to have our backs!!

You are possibly one of the stupidest motherf*****s in the world for posting that or maybe you never had a suit against you, or totally screwed up and lost a suit,

I'm not worried about what the city pays out. The best thing for the copper being sued for BS is for the city to pay out. You dipshits that think its a good idea for the city to fight these lawsuits have never been sued. Have never had to turn over all of your financial info in case the jury comes back with punitive damages. Stop asking for the city to fight this shit. All you're doing is putting the financial future of police officers in the hands of an Illinois, Cook County jury. Wake the fuck up. Let the city settle and pay out as quickly as possible. Our goal should be the protection of the coppers not the city's coffers. And for the short sighted schmucks who'll argue, if they fight these, they'll be fewer in the long run, great. How about you volunteer to be named in the first dozen or so that go to a jury trial? Didn't think so. I've been sued three times. Only once did I have to give up my finances. The city settled on all for pittance of what the original amount was and the accompanying CR's were unfounded. Best thing that could of happened for me and the other coppers. Was it over bullshit? Of course. I don't give a fuck. Either the city settles, or ya put your balls in the hands of 12 democrats from cook county.

Hey 3rd watch in 001, great letter, it's about time someone pointed out the obvious.

Agreed! The shortage of police on the third watch in 001 is no longer a joke, it is dangerous. And, when the p.o.'s need time due, it could be covered by the overload of tact officers who work a (usually) four hour night. Go to their tact office when there is a game on the television. They are all in there, watching the show and talking and laughing. Not much work going on. The bosses know this, but do nothing.
