Gold Stars Growing Testicles?

Too little, too late:
  • SCC, we realize that you're geared towards the perspective of the PO, but hopefully you're paying attention to the mutinous rumblings from the command staff. 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.

    Is someone counting strawberries at 35th St? More importantly, is someone at City Hall gauging the feelings of the bosses at the police department?
While a parting shot on your way out the door feels good, too bad more weren't doing this before morale cratered and the Department we knew died.

What these "bosses" did was a variation of what Dude does: talk shit after you got him dirty and he's in cuffs, the paper's done and you're walking him back to lockup. Woof after the fact when there's really no substantive repercussions on the menu.

I'd toss a bag of my own shit with my star secreted in it onto McCarty's desk first thing Monday morning if I was ready to retire and had nothing to lose with a 6-figure pension attached.

No Gold Star Bossholes will ever - EVER - fathom outbursts like these while they still need that gold button to cash out with the big pension. Clout Cowards and Yes Men afraid of their own shadows, the most of 'em.

Let me know when ANY exempt rank tells McDoucheNozzle: "Your ideas are horseshit and I don't give a fuck where you claim manpower levels are at. I'll give as many of my people time off as I fucking want to. Now let's put an end to this charade and demote me back to my civil service rank if you have a problem with the way I run my district".

Yeah, that's right. AIN'T gonna happen.

No watch commander is such a bad idea I can't believe it ever actually happened. Now it's too the point that two different sgts are running watches on two days out of the week when the LT is not there and it's just chaos. No body wants to be the DSS and the sgts just honestly don't have a clue what they're doing. And when the LT goes on furlough.... It's really bad

You have coppers that have no idea of the command structure that is left, is it a sgt. then Lt, and Capt. or is it XO, or is it a DSS, and, is it a SS, or is it XO Deputy Chief or XO Commander, or is it District Deputy Chief, or XO Lt, or Bureau XO????

Why didn't all these gold stars say anything the last two years while the dept got totally turned upside down?

How could anyone in charge possibly let the dept get rid of captains and think this whole DSS thing is a good idea. Maybe if they promoted a bunch of luitenants and always have a LT there it wouldn't be a total cluster, but having sgts running a watch is just insanity.

Now there's in fighting between sgts and LTs as to who's in charge and who's running things. The sgt runs things dif then the LT when LT is off so the LT bitch at sgts but truth is the sgt is in charge when LT is Rdo so he can't say shit. Sgt needs to run It the way he deems fit. See how fast this goes south?

The problem is people become bosses on this job to make their own life easier not because they give a shit about leading men and women. the time to stand up and challenge other bosses is from the time you get promoted not the day before you retire.

Hey SCC, did you hear about Chicago’s new Champion of Freedom award?

Yea, it was given out for the first time this week to a guy named Timuel Black. Named a street after him too.

State Street between 49th and 50th is now named "Dr. Timuel Black Street".

Now, who exactly is this guy you might ask?

Timuel D. Black is a Chicago socialist and long time friend and colleague of Barack Obama. Black is a Professor (emeritus) City College of Chicago. He serves on the Advisory Board of the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism.

Timuel Black became interested in socialism in the 1930s inspired by Communist Party USA street speakers Claude Lightfoot and Ishmael Flory, who held their sessions in the park across the street from Burke Elementary School where he was a student

Black's activities were monitored by the Chicago Police Department's anti-radical "Red Squad", for many years.

Black was active in the Communist Party USA dominated Progressive Party in the late 1940s. Black organized an Hyde Park chapter of the Communist Party.

Champion of Freedom Award given not a line of duty wounded cop / firefighter? No. Some lousy communist jerkoff. City that works

Once proud working police dept.depending on wherever you worked dictated the kind of "policeman" you wanted to be what the people I. Charge never understood. The department needs all Personalites from the "hard chargers" to the traffic cars to the foot beat school cars. Caps officers and administrative "cops" we as employees made our decisions what type of offithe We wanted to become. And the department worked ..for years ..and then came friendly police time and the aggressive officers were the first to get slapped. Overnight it went from going out and doing police work. To just answering calls writing reports and keeping your head down. Being a good little officer ..so the dept killed the aggressive spirit. Don't get me wrong its still in us and there are some still trying to be officers no matter how much bullshit they get for it. And the officers who have fell into bare minimum only reacted to the hand the department dealt them ..so they expect after years and years of being beaten down to now say go be aggressive or else well berate you and break you down even more ..well guess what the dept.wanted passive security robots . And not the.. thinking fast on Your feet ..problem solving officer who knows what needed to be done in his little part of the city. I haven't posted in a awhile. And my opinion doesn't mean much but I miss the days of being to come to work and decide for yourself what kind day it was going to be ...I never in my short 16 years looked down talked shit or judged another officer on the way he or she decided to do this job. Everyone should be entitled to do what suits them ..and the police department as a whole worked ..I know this is a bit long so ill wrap it up ..stop trying to build a better engine... powers that's be ..and don't complain when your version of the engine doesn't work ....still lost. .

Help. Please. I beg you. Can I please just get the most rudimentary and basic tools I need to do my job? With less and less of us, with more and more layers of responsibility (read: micromanagement) the department should really be streamlining everything to make us more efficient. Why can't I find a working computer? Or a printer? Or a FAX machine - yeah, we still use those, tho Heaven knows if anyone else in the 21st century does - maybe because the COMPUTERS don't WORK!!! Or a xerox/copier that works? Hell, a thermostat that isn't set at "burning in Hell" or "Freeze off your gonads". How about the state of the cars? Don't get me started...peeling paint, broken seats, missing seals so the doors don't close...And now the BOP wants us to use those ridiculous in-car-cameras. Do they work? Have a microphone? Download? Can anyone log on? How about the HELP tickets? Don't they just automatically expire after two days? I'd love to see some of our "support" commanders, you know, like Johnathan Lewin, MR IT take a turn getting flogged at CONSTAT. I'd like to see him explain why nothing ever gets fixed. He can crow about unveiling some retarded new windows layer available only in Windows 8. I think every computer in the Dept is Windows 1. What the ??? Thanks. I have this drunken fantasy that every boss in the department wakes up in my hell and is required to sit at a dumpy desk with broken drawers that wrench out your shoulder when you try and open them (if they open), three legs of which one is bent and the others are broken; a chair with piss stains and tears in the disgusting seat that looks as if it was dragged in off the street at 39th and Indiana after a rainstorm, with five legs of which four have wheels all facing in different directions and the fifth is stripped. Then they can try to log on to a computer that takes ten minutes just to get onto the opening screen, mysteriously turns off as soon as your report is three quarters finished, then, if by a miracle was saved, you attempt to print only to find the printers are all down....Then some micromanaging pin head decides to return it to you for "correction". Maybe you put the wrong date on page three...MAYBE BECAUSE THE DAMN THING ATE THE REPORT HALF THROUGH and this is the FIFTH TIME YOU WROTE THE SAME REPORT for crissakes. Anyway, that's my fantasy. It only gets better the farther down the bottle I go.
In the mean time, CHEERS! Keep your heads up. I know we're drowning, but I hear it's not a bad way to go....

O.T. Shooting In The Palmer House Downtown Chicago!

A man was shot in the leg on the 22nd floor of the Palmer House hotel.

This trend will continue because the 1st district is extremely understaffed. Six years ago more and more robberies, shootings, burglaries, etc... started happening in the 1st and 18h districts. The ghetto criminals figured out that the 1st and 18th district is where you can commit a crime and get away with it.

Might be time for the accountability people (and the unions) to look at the size of our exempt staff (where no one ever loses pay or pension for being "dumped")as compared to rank and file #'s. I seem to remember that if the organization shrinks, so should the bureaucracy. There are a lot of people ( meritorious their entire career) who are going to collect a pension of over 123,000 a year. A little (lot) fat trimming is needed around here.....

Going back to Lieutenant from Gold Star is a leap that nobody in the Command Staff is willing to take without one hell of a parachute. The parachute used to be clout, but today many of the politicians are also afraid. In a couple of days one of our former Governors will be at the Halfway House on Jackson; that is living proof of what can happen if you get caught.

It is rumored that Commander Dave walked to the end of Navy Pier after learning of his fate. Having contemplated his 40 years on the CPD, he felt disgust, anger, emabarassment and then acceptance. Dave then threw his Gold Star into Lake Michigan and watched as it skipped six times until it sank to the bottom and finally lay next to also once proud fighter planes from World War 2. He then met the Supt and told him to F' off as all of the current brass kept their heads down at their desks so not to let the boss know what they had just witnessed. For the current brass knew if they even acknowledged for one moment that someone challenged the Supt this iwould also be their fate.

Being a Police Officer is a different kind of job. They ask you to put yourself in harms way: to stop that group of gangbangers, to walk into that holdup alarm, to run TO the sound of gun fire. You have to WANT to do that.

You don't want to work for someone you don't respect. You don't want to work for someone who flies off the handle in profanity laced tirades. You don't want to work for someone who continuously plays the game of "I'm smarter than you" even when he is dead wrong. You don't want to work for someone who's off duty drunken antics and train wreck family situation make him look less than honorable.

How do you respect a guy like that? Well, you don't. All that lack of respect trickles down to the rank and file. You want to know why the Department is ineffective? Look at the manager.

On the Department we expect a little politics, but he's made some horrible police decisions. He won't backtrack even though he knows he should. He can't admit them, or his narcissistic personality makes him blind.

Maybe the Country needs him for some Federal position and he will just have to take it for the good of the Nation. Isn't that what we always do, promote a problem away?

He was given retread inside people from 35th St. who had to go back to the academy for refresher classes because they had not been on the street for so long. Joe Gorman has not been the answer either ... despite being a great guy, they are still shooting up the district at a record pace. Good Luck Joe cause you are next.

There is a reason why the military considers such things as " time in grade". If you look at most " special Merit people" when they jump certain commands it is usually a disaster. It takes a few years to be a good sergeant -- same for lieutenant and watch commander. Just the way it is-- it is called experience and no flow chart- clout heavy rules are going to change it.

Jarmusz was also pissed that the brass is considering moving MTU to new digs. They want to move them to the old 009th District at 35th and Lowe. That building was condemned a long time ago. No facilities for females, shitty lockrooms, and even shittier bathrooms, pardon my pun.

Garry has lots of experience. Only 4 yrs on the streets, then 4 yrs as a house mouse sgt, then 4 yrs as a Lt, then 4 yrs as a Capt then 4 yrs as an inspector. Lots of more experience getting drunk, belittling people, being one way, cheating on his wife, hitting on all female police officers, patting himself on the back, putting his face in a camera - any camera, shooting street lights out, muther fucking on duty officers trying to do there jobs, flexing muscles over football and rugby, coming up with ridiculous ways of policing, thwarting numbers and bringing with him the failure compstat. Im sure I missed a bunch but my fingers are getting tired of typing. ^Oh yeah, Dave is a good guy and a good boss. Loves the job and anybody that works. If you dont like him that probably means you're not a hard charger or like to sit on jobs, in the hole and on your hands.

Totally agree that Sgts should not be DSS. The other Sgts do there own thing when another Sgt is DSS and run the scam. Come in late, go home after a few hours leaving one Sgt to cover on the street. We are out here with no supervision which is a bad thing for some. Not that I need supervision but it would be nice to know someone is out there that has my back! Anytime I need to go home early a slip is taken from me. Are all those Sgts slips put in? Doubt it! I can't wait for swiping believe it or not. I have never gotten any benefits and have always done 8 for 8.

I agree that more should be doing it before it being a parting shot, but if you saw how McAsshole belittles these bosses and emasculates them, you'd understand.

I really think some of the bosses want to do well by the troops, but many of them just want to protect their spots. I could never get up there and "yes sir, yes boss, you're right sir" that asshole, which is why I'm not a boss. I couldn't take that shit, not from anybody.

If you witnessed the forum however, you would realize that it would not be effective to disagree with him, or call him out in that circumstance. He would shut you down in a heartbeat, and you'd get the hook. The whole effect would be lost.

If Emanuel and McCarthy want a REAL CRIME DETERRENT (NOT CompStat bullshit), they should take a lesson from our own Eddie FLYNN, now a resident of Michigan City, Indiana.
After working homicide, Ed retired as a lieutenant from 010.

Click on the
Michigan City News Dispatch

You can bet that aside from local Indiana media, no MSM will touch this because it would be counterproductive to the sinister agenda of of the gun grabbers and the Democratic pols.

By the way, another retired lieutenant lives nearby--none other than C. Lee "The Iceman" HAMILTON who was awarded the Lambert Tree and the Award of Valor after dispatching the notorious Gene Lewis to Hell when he attempted an armed escape from a courtroom at 26th St.

"...a parting shot on your way out the door feels good..."

...but it sure is cold comfort compared to being able to move forward and do some good in some recognizable, rational way while you were there...

So often today, one sees a complete detachment from reality -- and when you point it out, they become more frantic and even more detached. One-way arrangement, like a ratchet. Whole organization backs itself up in being wrong, wrong, wrong.

All I can see is that it keeps lots of fine new sedans in the "reserved" spaces...big payback for fiddling while the city burns.

A factory could not stay in business making crooked, backwards, falling-apart s__t -- light bulbs that explode, chairs that break under you, wheels that don't roll -- but numbers and talk go on and on and on.

At the factory's railroad siding, reality used to be a sign saying "NO CLEARANCE FOR MAN ON TOP OR SIDE OF CAR."

Now I hear that they are making smartphones with screens on both sides -- so you can "display your boarding pass" to the outside while not having to interrupt your streaming video on the inside screen.

It's too weird.

Chief Rivera, your days at the top are quickly ending. How about saving what little respect some still have for you and go out like a man? Speak your mind and take your dump instead of hiding like a coward, refusing to make any decisions. As a Marine, it is embarrassing to watch you hide.

I feel so sorry for any ppo getting on this job in the last 2 years. This is a great job, but people only seem to want this job now cuz they waisted 5 years and $80,000 on college and this was the only thing they could get. This is not just a "job" and sadly the last 2-3 years of recruits getting on the job are exactly what the dept wants, soft, self-entitled cry babys. These last 2-3 year people really think contact cards makes for good policing. Then they tell all their non police family and buddy's from the suburbs or wherever their from that they do what the actors on "the wire" do. Sad state around here lately.

Help. Please. I beg you. Can I please just get the most rudimentary and basic tools I need to do my job? With less and less of us, with more and more layers of responsibility (read: micromanagement) the department should really be streamlining everything to make us more efficient. Why can't I find a working computer? Or a printer? Or a FAX machine - yeah, we still use those, tho Heaven knows if anyone else in the 21st century does - maybe because the COMPUTERS don't WORK!!! Or a xerox/copier that works? Hell, a thermostat that isn't set at "burning in Hell" or "Freeze off your gonads". How about the state of the cars? Don't get me started...peeling paint, broken seats, missing seals so the doors don't close...And now the BOP wants us to use those ridiculous in-car-cameras. Do they work? Have a microphone? Download? Can anyone log on? How about the HELP tickets? Don't they just automatically expire after two days? I'd love to see some of our "support" commanders, you know, like Johnathan Lewin, MR IT take a turn getting flogged at CONSTAT. I'd like to see him explain why nothing ever gets fixed. He can crow about unveiling some retarded new windows layer available only in Windows 8. I think every computer in the Dept is Windows 1. What the ??? Thanks. I have this drunken fantasy that every boss in the department wakes up in my hell and is required to sit at a dumpy desk with broken drawers that wrench out your shoulder when you try and open them (if they open), three legs of which one is bent and the others are broken; a chair with piss stains and tears in the disgusting seat that looks as if it was dragged in off the street at 39th and Indiana after a rainstorm, with five legs of which four have wheels all facing in different directions and the fifth is stripped. Then they can try to log on to a computer that takes ten minutes just to get onto the opening screen, mysteriously turns off as soon as your report is three quarters finished, then, if by a miracle was saved, you attempt to print only to find the printers are all down....Then some micromanaging pin head decides to return it to you for "correction". Maybe you put the wrong date on page three...MAYBE BECAUSE THE DAMN THING ATE THE REPORT HALF THROUGH and this is the FIFTH TIME YOU WROTE THE SAME REPORT for crissakes. Anyway, that's my fantasy. It only gets better the farther down the bottle I go.

Agreed. We have MS Office 2003. Only TEN years old. IT people said we are going to have it for a lot longer. Love when copy machine nearly rips your original Lineup Advisory Form nearly in half, or when you go to print something you have to check 5 different printers to see where it comes out.

Not to mention printers are either super light due to low ink, or they're out of paper and the paper is locked up. So you have to take paper from one printer to put some in another.

The dept. doesn't care that there are some computer-savvy people who could really use a newer version of Excel or Access to keep track of reports, etc (talking about D unit). They just don't give a fuck.

And oh yeah, as an RBT det., I had 416 cases last year. Ridiculous. McIdiot said we'd only have 150 each. Talk about another wrong projection! This year I'm already above what I had assigned last year. Can we say 500????

Mush treated his own people exactly the way McNumbnuts treated him and the rest of the command staff. Yes, he was the working police, but did not have the common sense of a 1 yr wonder. He often turned routine traffic jobs into 10-1s with his mouth. He cared only about his career. He never took an interest in any 009 officers that were injured on the job. After all, they couldn't make him look good with some FCs. He complained, but never complimented. Just like McDoofus. Now, having said that, while McShootemup was shooting out street lights in NY, Mush was shooting gang bangers. McSelfpromotion couldn't carry Mush's duffel bag as a police officer. Ah, the irony of it all.

Weis supporter, you are delusional. He did not come to Mette's aid, he waited until Iowa said they were going to have to reverse their decision before he put pen to paper. He put more people in callback than any other previous Supt., and don't think they were all released by him personally. He did not volunatrily get rid of the bogus cr#s, he was afraid to go after things any harder than banishment to callback after he saw what a horrible thing for morale that the Cozzi decision did. Finally, our uniform restrictions relaxing make the average blue shirt look like a fucking kid, that baseball hat makes you look unprofessional. Carbine training was coming regardless and those high priced RWD Tahoes are hardly a success. Grow up, you can still dislike this guy if you want, but don't act like we were doing well under the old regime. Was Weis the worst Supt. we ever had or will have? I don't know, but I don't miss him.

Dave Jarmusz wasnt a bad commander. Let us not forget, you could have Gen. Patton for a district commander and people would have something bad to say, just how it goes. But no one can say the man was a snake, incompetent or thoughtless. Sure, he might have demanded that beat cars start writing parkers at a shooting scene, but if thats the worst he did, I think a unit to have him was fortunate.

Chief Rivera, your days at the top are quickly ending. How about saving what little respect some still have for you and go out like a man? Speak your mind and take your dump instead of hiding like a coward, refusing to make any decisions. As a Marine, it is embarrassing to watch you hide.

Marine yea ok! No MARINE acts like this he is like a typical Andy grain! MARINE NO WAY, SEMPER FI!

Hey SCC, did you hear about Chicago’s new Champion of Freedom award?

Yea, it was given out for the first time this week to a guy named Timuel Black. Named a street after him too.

State Street between 49th and 50th is now named "Dr. Timuel Black Street".

Now, who exactly is this guy you might ask?

Timuel D. Black is a Chicago socialist and long time friend and colleague of Barack Obama. Black is a Professor (emeritus) City College of Chicago. He serves on the Advisory Board of the Committees of Correspondence for Democracy and Socialism.

Timuel Black became interested in socialism in the 1930s inspired by Communist Party USA street speakers Claude Lightfoot and Ishmael Flory, who held their sessions in the park across the street from Burke Elementary School where he was a student

Black's activities were monitored by the Chicago Police Department's anti-radical "Red Squad", for many years.

Black was active in the Communist Party USA dominated Progressive Party in the late 1940s. Black organized an Hyde Park chapter of the Communist Party.

Champion of Freedom Award given not a line of duty wounded cop / firefighter? No. Some lousy communist jerkoff. City that works

Hey brainless or should I say clueless...Dr. Timuel Black is old as dirt first of all. You have not listed one thing he did within the last 60 years. Any crimes committed? Terrorist activity? Plans to overthrow the government. I don't know much about what he did in the 1930s!!! but now he is a reknowned historian on back Chicago. A few years back Woodson Library had a large exhibit devoted to him because of his influence at the local level. He's not a radical or a rabble rouser. He's an old man that loves history.Read a book once or twice. You might actually use your brain a bit. By the way, since you basically regurgitated information from key wiki you as well have included that admitted hanging around a lot of communists but not being a member himself (not unusual for black intellectuals in that time period) and serving in the Battle of the Bulge, the invasion at Normandyand the liberations of Paris and Buchenwald.You Fricken idiot you.

It is more than a job if you believe in such things as right and wrong, honesty and justice even when society and the politicians do not.

In any organization, and I do mean any, it never pays to call out the boss in public. In most organizations that will get you fired, not just reassigned.

"McCarthy's got an email. What don't some of you tough guys tell him what you post here?

I happen to think McCarthy is good for this department and the boss structure is finally getting a taste of something they've never tasted before. Accountability."

There is almost no room for humor in these old bones but that comment caused me to spew beer from my nose. Thanks for the laughs...you suckass, dilusional house cat.

If the original poster spent ANY money at ALL on college, he wasted it.
CUZ/because, WAISTED/wasted, BABYS/babies, BUDDY'S/buddies, THEIR/they're... it would be funny if it wasn't so pitiful.

1/21/2013 12:35:00 AM


I am not the original poster but I got a college education and not one of those pretend diplomas from a phony baloney University. I did it for me, not the department, I majored in something I was interested in and I am using now into retirement. It's my education, the Department just helped pay for it. You have to do it for yourself, get the best education you can for you will be better for it.

The Department doesn't care if you take basket-weaving classes, if you don't have the clout you ain't going anywhere anyhow.

Hey that bathroom in the basement of 009 would be one Costanza would be proud of. A hidden gem. Now the guys who had their lockers in there? That's another story.


OSHA would have a field day if they had to inspect the old 009 Dist. The lockers in the shithouse was wrong on so many levels.
Then you have the lockers in the old range where lead levels are still sky high... the list goes on and on.
