Holy Shit Part II

  • An analysis of excessive-force complaints against hundreds of Chicago police officers is raising more questions about a district commander who is under investigation for allegedly assaulting an arrestee.

    The 49-page report, authored by a former Chicago chief epidemiologist, found that Harrison District Cmdr. Glenn Evans had at least 45 excessive-force complaints between January 1988 and December 2008. During those decades, according to the report, Evans had the highest number of complaints among 1,541 officers for whom the city provided data.

    The author, Dr. Steven Whitman, compiled and studied five city datasets listing 13,527 excessive-force complaints for the officers. Whitman, who died last month, finished the analysis in 2010 for a lawsuit against one of the cops. The report, obtained by WBEZ, has remained out of public view.
Bottom-feeder Flint Taylor has a number of choice comments that we'll skip because Flint is an asshole.
  • WBEZ last week revealed an April recommendation by the city’s Independent Police Review Authority that Evans be stripped of police powers. In that case, Evans allegedly jammed his police pistol into an arrestee’s mouth and threatened to kill him. A test found that DNA evidence on the gun matched the arrestee, Rickey J. Williams, 24.

    IPRA also referred the case to Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez’s office for criminal investigation.

    Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel did not respond to questions about his administration’s handling of Evans in light of the Whitman report. Last week an Emanuel spokesman said the mayor would not comment on the IPRA recommendation because that investigation was ongoing.

    A spokesman for police Supt. Garry McCarthy, questioned Monday about the Whitman report, wrote that the police department takes any allegations seriously but cannot comment on an ongoing investigation.

    The McCarthy spokesman, Martin Maloney, also lauded Evans, a 28-year department veteran. “Throughout his career, Cmdr. Glenn Evans has reduced crime and violence for the communities he has served,” Maloney wrote, crediting Evans for improvements in a South Side district he commanded until March.

    “Under Cmdr. Evans’ leadership, the 3rd District had 80 fewer shootings last year than in 2012, the second largest decline in the city,” Maloney wrote.
Rahm is in an actual election fight. He's also in contract negotiations, so everything he does is calculated to paint the Department as unreasonable, greedy, entitled, etc. The public doesn't know (and Rahm isn't telling them) that the FOP doesn't represent Sergeants (Lesner) or Lieutenants (Walsh) or Captains and that exempts like Evans aren't represented by a labor organization at all - they serve at the pleasure of the political structure (Rahm).

Logically, any misdeeds, alleged or substantiated by an investigation, must fall on the shoulders of McCarthy and Rahm. That isn't happening - yet. And Evans is being used by WBEZ as a high-ranking example of misconduct via the CR list. No distinction is being made between his alleged misbehavior and everyone else on the list, most of whom never had a Sustained finding against them.

At some point, Rahm is going to have to cut his ties to this politically damaging scandal if he's going to make any sort of showing in the west side wards.

Not saying anything about this Commander but can you say "Two-Tier" System of Discipline.

Coppers without CLOUT would have been fired years ago while this Commander and many others with CLOUT do whatever they want.

Remember the SOS copper with hundreds of CR#'s that was never stripped?

I have seen the Police Board fire coppers who little to no disciplinary history on one BS CR#.

I think it is high-time that the Police Board decisions are reviewed in light of what is coming to light!

"cut his ties" for political show...

Perhaps. Evans shouldn't necessarily be publicly made to stand apart.
I'm sure no fan of this mayor. But I bet in private he wishes he could just say out loud that these are the types of cops you need if you're going to bring down gang crime.

We all know it, and the shitheads know it. But they're laughing every night knowing those days are over.

No difference between Burge and Evans.

Violent people and other types of criminals who threaten public safety should be treated like that.

One day, when the public has had enough, they will demand that level of police response to gangs and crime. And they will probably look the other way when the lawyers, politicians, and academics responsible for this current attack on law-abiding people- get a dose of what they got coming to them for this mess.

If you or I were accused of jamming our pistol in some assholes mouth we'd be fighting for our very job and/or fighting to stay outta jail. Why is it that Cozzi can be charged with violating some drunks civil rights for a couple of well deserved cracks but removing dudes tooth enamel with your front sight keeps you comfortably in charge of ruining a district. Evans came over as a breath of fresh air but has proven himself to be just another Koolaid drinking exempt that the powers that be won't touch because of political expediancy. Every officer that catches an excessive force beef in the future or is fighting one now needs to use this bullshit double standard in their defense. And people wonder why this job is fucked.

That's just a decimal over 2 per year. Can someone get this man's total number of arrests for those years. No one ever gets that info out to the media. The public couldn't imagine the amount of arrests a hard working officer makes in a career. They need to know. Say an officer makes 200 arrests per year? Then take the number of complaints and the percentage is small. Now before the comments start, I am not making a statement for any type of brutal cop. I am making a statement regarding percentages of complaints vs. arrests, which a percentage of that number, are outright lies by some of the worst criminals ever, who want to sue and/or have their case thrown out. There were times that I even documented offenders threatening to sue me in a case report. I sat in federal court based on lies, as many officers on this job have. I will reserve my judgement based on many more facts.

People need to go to jail who cares if it's only for a couple hours or a night in jail. Bottoms line people need start getting locked up. Forget about these contact cards and anovs, that they just rip up in front of our face. Officers are being told no arrest in 011. These younger kids coming on the job are being taught the hands off approach to policing. Which is totally a wrong way to police these animals.. get back to the hands on approach and locking these people up.

U are absolutely right. Bosses are to worried about number numbers numbers, getting that gold star and trying to impress one another. I love how people say Evans is the police.

Someone from the Media or academia should have broken the figures down. The number of complaints should not be the issue, but rather the number of Sustained Complaints, and in that regard there were few. The reality is that a very small percentage of the allegations were substantiated and those officers were disciplined. In addition it should have been noted that Complaints against an officer is a form of retaliation against an officer since it obviously mars his or her record. The fact that nobody from the Union stood up to this misrepresentation of facts against police is disgraceful.

The High-Ranking CPD always get off the hook when involved in criminality, just like the SOS Scandal, Marquette 10, Tarnished Star, and the rest. This is because the high-ranking CPD kick back a portion of their annual salaries to the Democrat Party. When the big bosses get in trouble, the politicians get them off the hook by paying off their "people on the inside", crooked Judges, State Attorneys, etc. The Politicians have to get these big bosses off the hook so that the big bosses don't spill the beans abou the kickbacks to the politicians. Thats why Crook County is totally corrupt in a nut-shell. This info came from a retired CPD Deputy Supt. When was the last time you saw ANY High Ranking CPD Official go to jail or Prison? When was the last time the Blue Shirt was nailed and the White Shirts all walked away, many rising to an even higher rank? They ALL Pay-to-Play, the Chicago (corruption) Way.

If an officer in a ghetto district is making lots of arrests, consider also the type of people being arrested, not choirboys, we know that. They push back, they aren't afraid of throwing a punch at a cop or anything else they can get their hands on. Mere allegations of excessive force means nothing. You have to use force or else revert back to the contact card police.

Whenever CPD 'allegations' are determined to be exonerated, unfounded or not sustained they are just that...a 'claim' in which the accused officer was acquitted, the assertion found to be groundless or simply not proven.
So why then is it prejudicially publicized or used vs. a member in judgement of a future 'allegation?'
Using that theory, every criminal case should BEGIN with reading the defendants background including all the charges that were ever placed including those dropped, SOL, non-suit and found not guilty.

Here's my 2 cents

As far as I'm concerned about the bad situation here in Chicago aka Chirak as some or most people call it nowadays, I say f@#k it, the hell with the people and politicians this is what they wanted so I say to you brothers and sisters in blue, do nothing but the minimum just answer your calls leave some paper if needed and back your fellow P.O.'s. go home at the end of your tour and protect your own community, friends and family from these vermin coming into your own communities. This is hard to say but this is reality, the people and politicians mentioned earlier do not care about us law abiding citizens especially us in blue. The powers to be do not want us to police but rather babysit these parasites and in the process get Cr's and lawsuits and ultimately fired or thrown in jail for doing our job which is policing. For the rest of you blue-shirts that want to still make that sacrifice and difference then god bless you and keep up the good fight against these parasites.
Old Fart, been on the job for 28yrs, still don't know what I'm still here for but I'll tell all you young bloods on the job today, this is not the way we old timers used to police back in the day. It's a hands off policy today in the present and that's why crime is so out of control today. This is what the powers to be wanted, can't comprehend that myself but true. And yes never had clout unfortunately, worked almost everywhere and or position as a blue shirt so still pushing a beat car till this date. God bless you all and go home safe.....

Is it OK now, if true? The DNA thing makes it pretty hard to believe it's not.

You see, the political asses really don't care about this department. They only care about perception. Don't do their dirty work with the, "hook or crook" mentality.

CORRECT

Numerous pos from 003 already called in to GJ to lock in their statements and more may be in the pipeline. hopefully they didnt lie under oath to help out this loose canon. The CCSAO and Feds are also interviewing past excessive force complainants and more charges should be coming soon both for Evans and pos who made the arrests/wrote the paper on several of his encounters. This is more than the usual witchhunt especially when there is DNA evidence supporting the allegation.

These people, when acting like SAVAGES, need to be dealt with like SAVAGES. Shame on any PO's bashing a man out there kicking ass like OLD SCHOOL. This has really gotten to be a pussified police department because of jagoffs like Flint Taylor and his ilk.


100% right... Remember if they didn't pussy up the job half the coppers couldn't do it..

If indeed Robinson's DNA was found on Evan's gun, there are plausible explanations other than what Robinson alleged.

Hold your head high, Glen Evans.
My original commander and your distant predecessor at Fillmo', George Sims, would be proud of your outstanding high arrest activity during your career.

As far as unrelated and unsustained, unfounded and exonerated complaints, since when does a bit of "old school" policing make a copper anything other than Chicago's Finest?

Fillmo' has a proud and legendary tradition for being "da REAL PO-leece."

Most of all officers who work hard do get multiple CRs its a known fact...does not mean officer is a reckless po. Offenders only way to get even is to complain what else do they have to loose. Granted a very few po's have gone to the darkside but most are legit real good officers and the public needs to open their eyes and see this. I dont think they realize how bad crime is and how policing people in different ways can make a difference.

No fair trial here but the courts wont allow pookies background rap sheet of all offenses to be exposed here. Where is the truth behind who gets a fair trial well its obviously not the police. However offenders could have a rape conviction, murder case, robbery, a delivery case and no jury will know about it because they have rights....hey its bullshit if our Cr's are bullshit mostly all and are being exposed, then let the list of offenses and convictions to be utilized in a court of law for the jury and public to decide an offenders fate.

If/When Glenn's problems blow up (closer to the election the better), Rahm can come in w/ an iron fist and get Aldermen, community activists, and the public on his side by vilifying Glenn (and the CPD) then dumping McCarthy.

When this case is closed would he seek the same action as Weis did with Bill Cozzi.

Here is the deal, the department can blame the commander for a few incidents of excessive force and leave the Commander out to dry.

With a pattern of these incidents, however, the department is going to be on the hook for big bucks.

The moral of the story is that unless you are heavily connected, you cannot afford to "Kick ass like OLD SCHOOL."

The affidavits are bullshit. I was an accused where the affiant lied through he teeth against eight police officers. total bullshit. CPD found all charges against PO's were Exonerated or Unfounded. CCSA refused charges. We sued and lost. Appellate judge said people can lie about the police and it isn't illegal when making a complaint. Go figure. I didn't have the funds to go to the supreme court and FOP would not fund it any more.

It sounded nice at first but you can wipe your ass with those complaint affidavits. I do not believe anyone has ever been successfully prosecuted for lying. Another dog and pony show.

The CR #'s is a bit subjective. Show me a cop who makes tons of arrests that stick who gets some CRs. That you can defend. A cop who doesn't run the streets and gets CRs? Those are not the ones who I want carrying a weapon.

Here's the thing. When Evans came to 011, he made it clear that he wasn't going to take bullshit from people on the street, or big fat aldermen as the case may be. He won a lot of p/os respect for that. However, everyone has been left baffled by the current method of "policing" that is being pushed in the district. All that matters is contact cards and ANOVs. Literally. They don't want the tact teams making arrests. They don't care if beat guys' arrests are good. They want everyone to justify why they aren't bringing in whatever the expected number of contact cards is. P/Os are literally asked each week to justify their number of contact cards. Arrests, movers, parkers etc don't matter. The argument can be made that contact cards serve some purpose. But as anyone who has spent time on the street knows, they don't prevent crime. Evans knows that.

There are also way too many missions going on every night. More than half of the beat cars are in boxes for hours at a time. There are "mission" teams with guys with less than two years on them. Doing what? Nobody knows for sure.

Then you have this captain. He has no street experience and thinks that bullying people from behind a desk is the way to make them work harder. All of these policies aren't cutting it. 011 leads the city in homicides since these two took over. It's time to re-evaluate things. Being the "real police" doesn't always mean you're going to make the best leader. The "real police" today understand that there is a time and a way to get things done as they need to be, but to also do it while making sure your ass is covered. Nobody on this job is safe from being thrown under the bus and we all know it.

So nobody really doubts that Evans knows how to get the job done. We all just want to know why he is allowing himself to be pressured into passing off this ineffective bullshit to the p/os on the street. And why the hell he is letting the paper pushing captain fuck everything else up so badly, both inside the station and with the guys on the street. 011 has imploded. Time to admit that the current methods aren't working, and start rebuilding. If Evans can do that, maybe there's hope....for the p/os anyway. 011 has always been a fairly young district. These p/os don't have a whole lot of time on and want to get out there, run around and experience everything. There has never really been a need for extra coddling or motivation. But berating everyone and telling them they are never doing enough only lessens their desire to get their hands dirty.

I would like to respond to the most recent post that talks about 011's problems. First I want to agree, but 011 is not the only district that wants nothing from its cops but contact cards. They all do. There are some guys who are questioned by bosses why they are bringing in an arrest. You see, McDoofus thinks that everything should be handled on the street with either an ANOV or contact cards. That keeps the cops on the street and the mere presence of police on the streets will prevent crime. We all know that is a bullshit philosophy. But it is what he believes. And worst of all is that he's instilled that in the command staff. They're all eunuchs and just pass on whatever he tells them without question. Those who have questioned him are gone. They all fled the sinking ship.

Glenn should still be a patrolman. He's a great street cop but couldn't manage or supervise a 1 person lemonade stand. That's why he has the paper tiger Lemmer. Ask the guys in the old 023 when Lemmer was there. All he knew was to run missions, use his laptop to develop all kinds of his own databases that he kept on everyone, and push paper. That's all he knows how to do. He was great in R&D because that's where he belongs - writing reports about various things. He probably can't even double lock a set of cuffs. Now you have these 2 guys working together - and 011 becomes really fucked up. One want to play policeman; the other wants to play boss. And they are both operating in their own little worlds.

As I first said, it's not only 011. I'm sure other districts are just the same. We've heard on this blog a lot about 019 and 010 being screwed up too. I'm sure there are others. And everything that's fucked up leads to one person: McCarthy. Can you hear us now Rahm?
