Barb West - Just Resign Already

Hey McCarthy? You going to permit this to happen?
  • 25th District car is assisting fugitives, 1400 N Central. a whole 2 blocks out of 15. Bad guy gets goofy, copper calling for help and calling for a taser. You can hear the struggle on the radio. A 15th District car is right on the border and says they have a taser and are going.

    Guess what?

    1500 gets on on the radio and says that 15th district cars have to stay in 15.

    Commander, FUCK YOU. You were never the police, you are an over promoted bitch. When a copper calls for help EVERYONE goes. Turn in your fucking star. You are a worthless piece of shit. And McCarthy, if you let this stand with no punishment for that bitch, you are a total failure. And let me tell you something Barb, if you called a 10-1, no matter how much it would make my stomach turn, no matter how much I would love to see your chicken shit ass get whipped, I would still go to save your worthless ass. Cuz that's what coppers do. But then again, you weren't, still aren't and will never be a COP! Sleep well you piece of shit.
This is our so-called "leadership." Cops calling for help, same radio zone, two blocks away and Commander Barb West ordered cars NOT to go. We certainly hope 015 disregarded this blatantly improper order and went to assist 025. We're sure if they did go, 025 has a few capable supervisors who can handle the paper.

We suppose if Barb isn't running illegal First Amendment investigations, then she has pretty much nothing to hang her hat on.

There are tapes available Garry. How about showing the slightest impetus of maybe owning at least a time-share of your testicles and demoting Barb West? Otherwise, you've just lost the entire 015 District (more than you have already we mean.)

UPDATE: A commentator reminded us that Commander Barb West stood by and watched a female copper dragged into an alley by an offender and beaten into unconsciousness and didn't even call for help on the radio - she just stood there and watched before other 015 District units heard her yelling. This was just last year.

That one disappeared pretty quick. Anyone have a flashlight?

Here in the the 6 District we are not allowed to leave our beat to assist other officers in need of help. On third watch we are not allowed to respond to back up calls or 10-1s. The district is pretty big and if your on the west end you must stay there and the same for the east end. Obviously those of us with enough common sense or time on the job ignore that. Its sad, continue backing up your fellow officers. We are all we got.

Barb West is STILL impersonating The Police huh?

False Personation.
Theft.
U.U.W.
Criminal Trespass to Gov't Building(s).
Criminal Trespass to (Gov't) Vehicle(s).

Shit... We'd rather partner up with the goofy kid who worked a partial turn out in 003 a couple years ago... He was more useful in a partial tour than Barb West was her entire charmed career.

She couldn't spell 10-1 if you spotted her the 10... She'll never face a second of peril on this job.

The most danger she ever faced was hitting the top of her head on the underside of a gold star's desk...

The U.S. Postal Service overflow lot at 14th & Ashland has been paved over and the fence and locking gate where Barb used to hide in 012 were taken down so she'll have nowhere to hide if McNutLess actually DOES move to bust her ass in rank.

Actually, she has no fucking business on the job... Who the fuck handled her background investigation?

Just another one of Big Pimp Dana's Dollies...

An ignorant gold star heifer for fixing her mouth to say that dumb shit on the radio...

Another example of "We gots ta have some o' US runnin' thangs at CPD!"

Anybody feeling eager-beaverish to go hands on with these devils to "take back the streets" with you FREEDOM, FATE & FINANCIAL WELL BEING, being decided by a cabal of nitwits like Barb West and the ass-joke who promoted her?

Who the fuck is that LAUGHING? This shit is actually an eye-watering tragedy!

She IS going to get some Coppers fucked-up REAL BAD!

Ok...I'll be the asshat here and ask...why didn't anyone in 025 have a damn taser? Anyone in 025 care to answer that one? Or is that district all out of them?
I know I can't be the only one who wants to know the answer to that one. And to the officer who was only two blocks away...if that was the case, why didn't he/she just GO THERE? What would have been done to him if West of a Sgt filed a beef, or a SPAR? Doesn't anyone believe that due to the exigent circumstances, that the FOP would have defended this officer? I know that not a lot of people like West, for various reasons, but I'm willing to bet
that once you put a request like that over the air,
a lot of exempts would have likely made that same call...so why do it? Just go and help anyone who calls out for it, even if you have to leave your district for a couple of blocks. I'd still like for someone in 025 who was working on the day and watch when this incident occurred to answer that question: Where were the tasers in 025?

If garry or rham don't do something about this scag they need to be run out of town w/ her! I know I'm a citizen now but if I ever see a copper in trouble I will gladly give ANY assistance to a fellow P/O.

Over the years I have known many good female cops who would have been putting the boots and baton to the offender or the high-heals and whacking them with their purse that had a bowling ball in it.

Then there was this male sergeant many years ago in Cabrini Green Special Employment when there was a lot of heat there because of a lot of shootings. (Sound familiar?) He told us at roll call that Special Employment Units WILL NOT RESPOND TO 10-1's IN THE 18th DISTRICT.

We looked at each other and I worked in 18, and I didn't have a lot of respect for this goof to begin with. I spoke up at roll call and said that he could not tell us that and if he wanted to have that to have the Commander sign it and put it in the C.O. Book. Knowing the Commander back the I knew that wouldn't happen, no Commander back then would say that back in those days. So this sergeant puts me by myself guarding the Cabrini parking lot and I still made an arrest. What he said filtered back to the powers that be and he got launched. As I recall he had another job with one of the utility companies. He got caught double dipping and lost both jobs and went to jail. It was no loss for the CPD.

If this almost incredible account is accurate, an officer was calling for help [10-1]. Ignore West's unlawful order and respond to the other side of the Division St. border. While there's is no need to exacerbate this clueless idiot to her face, FUCK WEST!

Personally, any piece of shit that would pull a stunt like that should be terminated. She's got a lock on the 2013 Josef Kurtin Award with living proof that the promotional policies of the CPD are one enormously corrupt clusterfuck.

YOU HAVE TO READ HER INTERVIEW AFTER SHE WAS PROMOTED! This is a small segment...

But West says she owes her career in law enforcement to TV shows like Charlie's Angels. She was also inspired by the 1974 show Get Christie Love! a show about a black female detective whose catchphrase was "You're under arrest, Sugar!"


"She was my role model back in the day," said West, a Whitney Young High School graduate. "She was the first female black police private detective that I ever seen on TV."


West followed her passion forgoing a career as a lawyer. She opted, instead, to enter the police academy in 1994 after graduating Illinois State University with a degree in political science and economics. West worked as a beat officer in several districts, and eventually made detective, a job that she quipped wasn't anything like TV.

Not criticizing you SCC, just sayin'!

At comppost he's not happy about contact cards that are not written by officers on their assigned beat.

In the old days, retribution by the troops for this would have been swift. No parkers, no movers, no contact cards, curfews, NOTHING. If you guys don't take some sort of action, shame on you.

Why are people writing contact cards anyway? If you all stuck together, everyone will be thrown off their cars--so what? When the powers that be realize that is no longer a hammer they can use on you, what good is it?

Thus the unanimous opinion of the Second Circuit Court of Appeals (New York) stands.

The Kachalsky petitioners asked:

(1) Does the Second Amendment secure a right to carry handguns for self-defense outside the home?

(2) Do state officials violate the Second Amendment by denying handgun carry licenses to responsible, law-abiding adults for lack of "proper cause" to bear arms in self-defense?

A commander who tells police officers NOT to respond to calls for assistance and 10-1's?

Well, if someone doesn't file a shitload of complaints against this incompetent moron we might as well fold up and go home.

Anyone, including supervisors, with knowledge of this order, needs to put together a list of witnesses on duty at the time and file a complaint. That must be done. That cannot be allowed to stand unchallenged.

A complaint(s) must be filed immediately. That person (a Commander?) is likely to get police officers hurt or worse.

This Commander West is, however, providing a valuable service. She can be used in the Training Academy for years to come as an example of the exactly worst way to command officers.

Patch on the sleeve says Chicago Police not 015th District

4/16/2013 01:18:00 AM


Now there was a former commander of 015 who had standing orders for outside units to stay out of 015 but that is because he was a thief and made money protecting the drug dealers. Nothing ever happened. His bag man was arrested and went to prison but kept his mouth shut. The commander lived out his natural life and was never even accused, much less charged.

Rumor was the money went much higher, to an Area Deputy Chief who later made superintendant. No charges, no accusations, no trial, no nothing. The whole area was dirty as hell and nothing ever happened.

Just a few coppers here and there but never the bosses taking the real money.

This department doesn't promote the working police who have commonsense, 35th is full of do nothing dog-asses who've never received a CR, and were nothing more then paper jumpers assuming their wasn't a TRR involved. But rest assured, she's not going anywhere...being a f/1 in a command spot she's golden.

A similar situation happened to me about 15 years ago. My partner and I responded to a 10-1 at 4848. After the situation calmed, the Sgt berated me in front of 10 other coppers (some from 023) for leaving my beat and sector. I dared the POS Sgt, to not only SPAR me, but get a CR number on me (I drove the car) for leaving my beat and sector to respond to a 10-1 at a CHA building. I asked him what Maurer would say to him about CRing a copper for going to a 10-1 in a district that wasn't even that big to being with. He got flustered, as he was want to, and just said "get back to your fucking beat" I got computer "way to go" messages for an hour after that. The W/C called me in and said he wished he tried to SPAR or CR me, so he could launch the Sgt to 005 on midnights.

You don't leave your man (or woman) hanging, you send out everyone to help them.

RESUME OF A LEADER

Police Officer
Worked first watch in 012 for a few years. Protected medical district and factories. Full size pillow for sleeping in USPS yard at 15th & damen.

Transferred using management option to 011. Assigned to commander's office. Greatness recognized and "meritoriously" appointed to detective.

Detective
Eight months in Area Four as a bad check detective. Forced to work days with weekends off so banks are accessible. Greatness recognized and "meritoriously" promoted to sergeant.

Sergeant
Assigned to 013 for about 5 minutes. Organizational skills required transfer to position of Area Four Patrol Administrative sergeant. Next assignment is IAD Confidential Investigations. This is where the policing skills really pay off. Greatness recognized and "meritoriously" promoted to lieutenant.

Lieutenant
No time for a district. Immediately returned to IAD Confidential Investigations. When you got the skills, they are in demand. New Chief of IAD appointed and requests meeting to discuss status of investigations and accused officers. At the end of the meeting Chief of IAD remarks, "It's as if you have no police or investigative experience at all." Chief moves to immediately dump lieutenant to 003. Chief comes to work the next day and finds lieutenant working in Personnel on another floor. You can't keep greatness from rising. Now part of a dynamic duo with Ladner exempt status is right around the corner.

Commander
015.....and that's just the beginning. Soon to be a deputy chief near you.

Special Skills
Not ever having a job that required owning, much less wearing, a bullet resistant vest.

Truly PATHETIC.

I had the HONOR to work at a civilian level with CPD for many years with CHA. One night,a female PO and her partner were "having difficulty" with an offender that was getting the better of them. We were meandering around the jets in our security car,on viewed this and I was out fo the car diving in the shit before the damn car stopped. Another time the same female PO was attacked by a lunatic boon with a butcher knife. I again without thought or ANY hesitation jumped into the shit.While I was legally under NO obligation to do a thing but make a phone call and stand there waiting for the police,that to me is an UNCONSCIONABLE ACT OF COWARDICE.There have been times cops I "went at it" with were in the shit and alone and regardless of the argument 20 minutes earlier,I DOVE IN TO HELP THEM.
Im NOT a police officer. It makes me ILL that a so called commander would even entertain this action much less action on it. The statement "we are all we have" is TRUTH. It makes me wonder why you ladies and gentlemen would even bother with this quagmire of hacks and bullshit. This thought hit me deep and hard yesterday as I sat in Court for Rich Francis.

I spent 35 years on the street prior to my recent retirement, and I have to be honest, some of you new police officers just astound me. I said some not all. But you have to start thinking the correct way so this will be second nature. When you are caught hesitating you or someone else is going to pay the price.

Know the law and procedures and act accordingly. Look out for you fellow officers. Nobody is watching out for our well being other than the officers around you.

Remember that most of the exempt's were never officers who worked the street let alone a beat car. Most have very little experience. After all of the bull shit is washed away you have more knowledge and experience than most of them, and if you don't have this knowledge and experience, get it before it is to late to take care of yourself and those officers around you.

He actually flagged me down to pass on some info to us on the job.


Someone got a bug up their ass in the last 2 weeks.

Revenue got told the other Monday....

If it is on a Meter...if it isn't a Blue and White/Red and White....ticket it for expired meter if it isn't displaying a receipt.

I asked him the no brainer "WTF?" and he said some jagbag in the media made a stink about a meter ticket they got, while a revenue boot truck and a unmarked M Plate was apparently skipped.

I know we all 'know' that we are not exempted unless down on a call...but I chatted with my boss about this one, and the response is "if the unmarked gets ticketed, your comment when they complain is "Contest it at 400 W Superior on your Day off and not in Uniform." Regardless of rank or 'spot."

As an old timer told me when I went on " if you call for help there will be 50 guys out there tearing the building down brick by brick to get to you" and I never forgot that and would still do it today if I saw a PO fighting with a guy even though I'm the old school wheel gun police.

But West says she owes her career in law enforcement to TV shows like Charlie's Angels. She was also inspired by the 1974 show Get Christie Love! a show about a black female detective whose catchphrase was "You're under arrest, Sugar!"

"She was my role model back in the day," said West, a Whitney Young High School graduate. "She was the first female black police private detective that I ever seen on TV."

Yes! You ARE an ASSHAT!

Really! What the fuck does it matter how far/how close/what fucking district a copper with a Taser is coming from?

You want to BITCH about why wasn't there a Taser available in 025?

You fucking clown! It only matters in the fermenting brains of Barb West and other mental defectives like her...

WTF? "don't help another copper because it's on the other side of the street?"

So... If your partner were fighting for his/her life, you would scream like a bitch run and lock yourself in the squad?

"I didn't see shit cuz it wasn't happening in the car"

Of course you would cry like the bitch you are if your partner by all rights, knocked you teeth out when he/she was done dealing with the savage.

Barb West is the equivalent of a gun belt floating with a loaded pistol in the holster.

Rule #1 of Real Street Policing:

Fuck what these wretched bosses and their rotten political sponsors say. They ARE NOT THE ONES IN DANGER! It would be a beautiful thing to see Gold Stars enduring the indignity of getting cut out of wadded-up cars, getting burned by hot fire, getting stitches or having rods, plates and pins implanted in THEIR broken body parts or having bullets dug out of THEIR highly paid and precious asses from Policing these savages eyeball to eyeball.

exempt rank and more pay should equal more willingness to lead from the front and face the same peril the "Backbone of CPD" faces.

*Chirp-Chirp*

(All things being equal? Of the stars hanging in the case at HQ, 10% of them should be gold in color. "Monetize" that, Rahm!)

The same fucking savages given special dispensation from City Hall to do the damn fucking fool and render this city unfit for civilized people.

Heh... "Po-leece outta control up in heah!"

Fuck You...

The Police go home in one piece. The mutt goes to the morgue or to the hospital then Cook County Jail.

Barb West is STILL impersonating The Police huh?

False Personation.

U.U.W.
Criminal Trespass to Gov't Building(s).
Criminal Trespass to (Gov't) Vehicle(s).

Shit... We'd rather partner up with the goofy kid who worked a partial turn out in 003 a couple years ago... He was more useful in a partial tour than Barb West was her entire charmed career.

She couldn't spell 10-1 if you spotted her the 10... She'll never face a second of peril on this job.

The most danger she ever faced was hitting the top of her head on the underside of a gold star's desk...

The U.S. Postal Service overflow lot at 14th & Ashland has been paved over and the fence and locking gate where Barb used to hide in 012 were taken down so she'll have nowhere to hide if McNutLess actually DOES move to bust her ass in rank.

Actually, she has no fucking business on the job... Who the fuck handled her background investigation?

Just another one of Big Pimp Dana's Dollies...

An ignorant gold star heifer for fixing her mouth to say that dumb shit on the radio...

Another example of "We gots ta have some o' US runnin' thangs at CPD!"

Anybody feeling eager-beaverish to go hands on with these devils to "take back the streets" with you FREEDOM, FATE & FINANCIAL WELL BEING, being decided by a cabal of nitwits like Barb West and the ass-joke who promoted her?

Who the fuck is that LAUGHING? This shit is actually an eye-watering tragedy!

She IS going to get some Coppers fucked-up REAL BAD!

"We gots ta have some o' US runnin' thangs at CPD!" First off, that comment along is worthy of you getting a popped in your mouth. Secondly, I never cared for the color of my leaders. Take care of the troops. You got plenty coppers selling their souls and worse selling out their fellow coppers to get over and you bring up some racial crap. Hey jackass! The cop that backs me up and looks out for me is a brother, I don't care what package he comes in. I'm black and I've been in situations where I didn't get down with the black guys but some white dudes were my roll dogs. That's seeing past the package. Can you? What's is to you that we got some bad leaders and some revs and "community leaders" want to have some of their bad leader friends in their do. What difference does it make for the copper? None. They suck either way.

Sad state of affairs.

Why do we have a high Murder Rate?

Why do we have a low Murder Clearance Rate?

Because idiot Exempt Members like this are running the Police Dept.

She looks good standing in the background at a press conference.

That's all she is good for.

This goof is but the tip of the iceberg to a much larger problem.

Rahm Will keep running the Police Dept into the ground as long as it looks good on a balance sheet.

Garry gets an assist for the C.P.D. state of affairs but is just an extension of the Fifth Floor.

To be the Superintendent does not mean you are good at running a Police Dept. or combating crime.

It means you are very good at explaining bad numbers to the media and preaching that the big change to turn the tide is just around the corner. After a few years you get replaced and a new talking head is hired.

At the current rate we should be down to around 10,000 members by the Mayoral Election.

Expect mass hiring just before that.

To use a Braveheart reference, I would like to tell Barb West to walk from the 015th District to Police Hq and on the way kiss the ass of every working Police Officer that shows up on your path and lowers his or her regulation trouser or tactical jeans on the way.

When you get to H.R. to turn in your undeserved Star, admit that you have been stealing money from the taxpayers of Chicago by way of accepting numerous paychecks without doing Police Work or properly supervising working Police Officers under your command.

I DONT want someone worried about certain rules/regs every time something goes crazy go on in this city. The way you are you'll be able to review your rules/regs handbook while you recover from an ass kicking in your hospital bed. Because when its YOU screaming on the radio for help and no one comes because of this mentality than you can think about how unwise it was to spend your parents money on a college degree and how you realize that you defenitely are not cut out for this profession.

After having read the long diatribe at the beginning of this post, and having heard all radio transmissions regarding this incidentx and must comment. The officer asked for a"sergeant" with a taser. After no answer, a few seconds later the dispatcher asked for a car with a taser. Several cars from 025 came up, saying they were close by, going, etc. The 015th District car then came up and said they were going. The same beat who complains about getting jobs in their own district. Hmmm... A few secondd later there was a call of total disregard. The person was in custody. Now you can like or dislike whomever you want, but the total lack of respect that I just read here makes me happy that I am a short timer. Everyone is so worriedd about Rham dividing. Stop worrying.

That's the point. We need to ask permission because of the G.O's, S.O.'s, and IPRA interpretations that will jam us up. We need to have this aired out because the current above stated rules/regulations allow for an incompetant person to misdirect hard charging police.

In all of the hullaboo to bash the cmdr of 015, it seems that everyone is willing to allow the supervisors of 025 off the hook about why no one with a taser was able or willing to respond???? Well? Does anyone sign tasers out in 025 anymore? What about the sgts? Does 015 have to ride across the district boundary and save the day in 025 on a regular basis? Does this happen often?

4/16/2013 11:26:00 AM

SHEEEEEEEIT!

THE HELL YOU SAY!?

It looks like Tutu of Fire is trying to put out the flames of a full blown exempt mutiny and mass defection?

Rahm figures "Fuck the Blue Shirts" but he NEEDS the exempts in place to be his heat shield.

Especially the black exempts...

Rahm is scared out of his fucking wits.

Why?

Because so much of his "brilliant" strategy pertaining to CPD. Has. Gone. Wrong.

The Catered To Constituents have told him not to remove one single copper from the west and South sides to deal with the issues downtown.

The attendees at the Gold Coast & North Shore cocktail party and fundraiser circuit are likely asking Rahm some very hard and pointy questions.

The $17K Streeterville, Gold Coast and DePaul area taxpayers are slowly realizing they're in for a special treat this summer.

Look for Coppers to continue retiring like it's going out of style. The '85 to '95 people are fleeing in droves.

Rahm is playing the exempts like whores... Throw a steak down their throats, ply them with drinks and trying to get them to either cough up advice/certain Chicago Police-y type information w/o the proper "consultation fee" (fuck you, pay me...) or Rahm is doing some "morale building."

Big Question!

Will McOuttaIdeas be there?

That would be telling...

You exempts in attendance?

Don't tell Rahm shit... He has NO ONE'S BACK other than to stick something sharp between your shoulder blades.

He's the smartest mayor who hired the smartest superintendent.

They never felt the need to solicit the input of the men and women of this Department for ANYTHING!

Heh... Eat the steak. nod and smile. Laugh at his shitty jokes. But don't drink shit... Be sober as a hanging judge when dealing with these people.

Rahm is out of his hole without cover... That means he's desperate and trying to save face.

Or... He's going to chain the doors shut, set the joint on fire and set up a shooting station by the one unchained exit to shoot everyone with the God given good sense to flee the flames because you should feel honored to burn with him...

WOW. Just WOW! Bucking for that merit white shirt spot Huh? Think like the POLICE; Why's it got to be blue shirt/white shirt? If you can't handle being yelled at as a white shirt for them taking care of other troops, you shouldn't be on the job, much less wear a white shirt. Maybe its "FORTUNATELY you will stay blue shirts"; so other blue shirts have someone to back them up.

I'd really love to know what some coppers would do for a gold star. Work under the desk, chop their arm off, pay for the bosses new boat, make their car payments?

What exactly would cross the line for someone to say 'no thanks'??

Barb as a female black commander of the CPD Dr. King would be ashamed of how you have advanced in tis department. You never were the police based on the positions that you have held and the units in which you worked or were placed in charge of. Dr. King stated quite famously “let a man be judged on the content of his character and not the color of his skin”. Barb it is not only you who has abused this idea yet every exempt boss of color or who is a female. The idea that you have the audacity to micro manage the district, ask p.o’s to do activities that place them in questionable positions only to ensure you current position or look to move beyond your current rank is an insult to every officer who has done the job which you have chosen to never attempt to do (go back to your hole and sleep on the ‘island”) Far better commanders have been the police and then held your current position, you insult their hard work. Do the officers in 015 and the department and leave as soon as possible. We in 015 do not care how we just hope soon and hopefully not to a position of higher rank and authority. You never were the police and this latest incident is an indication that your entire time in the command position is an absolute failure.

This reminds me of a case in England a year or two ago. Police officers and firemen stood and watched for 15 minutes while an epileptic man drowned in a duck pond at the park. One cop who tried to save him was chased back to shore by the supervisor. The problem? His level of training had not certified him to enter water that was more than ankle deep. The epileptic man had floated out to the middle of the pond, where the water was waist deep. By the time an officer certified to enter water more than ankle deep arrived, the victim had drowned. This is what happens when you put rules and red tape over human lives.
