What Are They Smoking?
Two interesting comments:
- 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.
- 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.
Anyone want to let us know if there's a grain of truth to rumor #1. Rumor #2 sounds exactly like a few stories we heard Friday.
