Officers Stripped

  • Two Chicago Police officers have been stripped of their arrest powers and placed on desk duty pending an investigation into a racially motivated fight that left a sergeant with severe head injuries, a department spokesman said Friday.

    On Oct. 30, the officers [...] entered an elevator with the sergeant when he made a racially disparaging comment to a group of African-Americans going to a wedding at City Hall, witnesses alleged.
Everyone notice how the word "allegedly" is added into the last part of the sentence - almost as an afterthought - as if there's already been a finding against the sergeant at the start of that paragraph. Stripping two witness officers though? This thing is getting smellier by the hour.

Second class citizens. You don't have the same protections as the average citizens has because of the Rules and Regs. If any remark was made and you worked for Florsheim shoes what would happen to you for the commits, nothing. You can never express yourself freely if your in uniform or 'on the clock'. Hell you are limited to what you can say your whole career.

This whole situation is so messed up. First the offenders commit an aggravated battery. Then they say he said something racial and their actions were forgiven. Now the two PO's who were with him are stripped because their friend MAY have said something that hurt the offenders feelings. What is wrong with this city?

In this country, freedom of speech is cherished, and also allowed by the First Amendment to the Constitution. So even if, and that is a very big IF, the sergeant made some inconsiderate remark, so the fuck what? Get over it, asshole. It in no way exonerates, allows, or justifies a felony crime to be committed as a result. Why are these assholes not locked up yet?

If the officers did use racial profanities, shame on them. But, this does not justify attacking a person and leaving him in the hospital. If the officer violated Department policy, investigate and take the appropriate action based on the findings of an impartial and fair investigation.

What bothers me is the double standard. Officers use racial slurs but did not commit a crime. Officers white. Black commander charged with a crime gets to keep his guns and work at HQ while still making exempt pay. the Superintendent defends him in the media. Did the officers get to keep their guns? Where is the Superintendent saying these officers are innocent until the investigation is complete.

There are many reasons why someone might be RWOC, people that are RWOC sometimes get charged at a later time. If you've ever made a felony arrest and paid attention to what the detectives and state have to do you would know that. I don't know if that is the case here but why should whoever is working on the case share their strategy with you and other people on this public blog.

Perhaps this wouldn't be the case if the police hadn't been full of themselves, talking trash on the elevator so convinced of their own superiority and then lying. Most people just ride an elevator and get off on the appropriate floor. It's really that simple.

What does merit have to do with this? As SCC said, the stink on this story is growing.
However I can't see any connection to your bitter resentful comment about "merit" over "list" promotions.

Now I am just a blue shirt, and I don't ever see that changing, but to think the "list" is any better than the "merit" is stupid. Both systems are very broken and neither really seem to prove who is the best candidate for leadership and supervision, not to mention the monetary raise. I can think of at least 2 people I know that will be in the first class off the new list and I would want NOTHING to do with working for them. It took 7 months for the testing company and the city to manipulate the scores and create the numbers they found acceptable, that is blatantly ridiculous. Basically what I am saying is that "list" based on the testing doesn't always prove to be any better than some of the "merit" hacks allowed to progress in this job.

This version of the story told by the "witnesses" (co-defendants) seems unlikely. Who would say that in an elevator full of black people? Sounds like some good coaching from a plaintiff's attorney. This is a skillful lawyer's attempt to turn the beating and robbery of a police sergeant's gun into a lawsuit where the offenders do not get charged and get paid at the same time. If you think plaintiff's attorneys don't coach and help manufacture their client's story then you've never dealt with them.

Comments of this sort keep popping up. Really, how DOES something like this happen? Well, It's just like SCC stated; things continue to get fishy. Obviously something isn't adding up and the "said something racist" isn't all that happened on the officers ends. Or maybe it is(or didn't happen at all). We don't know. But a few people in the first post of this story a week back stated it seems something isn't fully being told.

So one of the Offenders makes a statement which may or may not be true. Regardless, the CHICAGO POLICE SERGEANT was beaten with life threatening injuries. None of us know what happened, and if the OFFENDERS statement is true than the Officers involved will have to answer to that. But let us not forget one simple fact that does hold true...just because someone calls you a name, racial or otherwise, does not give you the authority to follow that person, beat him within an inch of his life and then STEAL his gun and take off. You people read that last part? The firearm was stolen!! How many times in a night are you called every name in the book while working? Is it ok for you to then tune up that person and commit a Robbery? How about off duty? You would be thrown off this job and charged. And it wouldn't make a bit of difference that the person you battered called you a name.

If these shitheads were involved in a verbal altercation with the Sgt, who then made a racial comment, and a fight ensued as a result, don't you think the normal response by a "innocent citizen" would be to call the Police? EMS? But they didn't do that did they? They stole his firearm and fled. And only after having their faces and vehicle on every newspaper and news report did the one turn himself in. How about some loyalty? If it was you laying in a hospital bed, not being able to defend yourself, wouldn't you at least want your own fellow Officers to give you the benefit of the doubt? We expect the public to be against us without any type of knowledge of the truth, especially in todays world, but lets stand together. And if the truth comes out and someone is wrong? Fine call them out on it. I know there are trolls on this board, but some of these ignorant comments are made by our own. If you feel that strongly 01:16:00 PM,
06:19:00 PM, 07:04:00 PM and others,then say it to the two Officers that were there, or the Sgt Victim in the hospital. And say it in person, not sitting behind a keyboard, passing blame on three guys who may save your ass one day! Will the assholes who did this save you? Nope, they will beat you down, steal your pistol and then say you did something wrong to justify their actions.
Be safe out there

3. notify O.E.M.C who you are, where are you at, description of any offender(s) and vehicle involved! and WHAT JUST HAPPENED!
4. Protect the crime scene until a Supervisor arrives! Who now has supervisory responsibility for the crime scene!

This is a merit SGT who took someone's spot on the list. Terrible shame.

11/08/2014 12:54:00 AM

-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_-_

What does merit have to do with this? As SCC said, the stink on this story is growing.
However I can't see any connection to your bitter resentful comment about "merit" over "list" promotions.

Now I am just a blue shirt, and I don't ever see that changing, but to think the "list" is any better than the "merit" is stupid. Both systems are very broken and neither really seem to prove who is the best candidate for leadership and supervision, not to mention the monetary raise. I can think of at least 2 people I know that will be in the first class off the new list and I would want NOTHING to do with working for them. It took 7 months for the testing company and the city to manipulate the scores and create the numbers they found acceptable, that is blatantly ridiculous. Basically what I am saying is that "list" based on the testing doesn't always prove to be any better than some of the "merit" hacks allowed to progress in this job.

Yes, true this is a hate crime against a single individual by several men. Its just sad that the victim was a white male. UNFUCKING REAL!
Correct me if I'm wrong but if a single black male "allegedly" was crazy enough to yell the N word at a large group of other black males and got a pumpkin head it'd just be black on black crime nothing to see keep it moving.... senseless
When will the white people rise up and protest, LOOT and go lawless for days on end and it'll be ok because of such injustices. PLUEZZ
Normal law abiding citizens who respect themselves and their property and other people and the property of others do not behave in such manners
I throw my hands up!
Why is it that only a few are held to be responsible for their actions????????
---------------

When things like this happen, some of you need to read up on what a hate crime actually is.

to 11:50 pm if the guy wanted a PPK your suggestion of a glock 42 would be spot on as both are in .380. HOWEVER, a P-38 is chambered in 9mm parabellum so a suggestion towards a 9mm glock/tupperware affair would be more in order. Pesonally, I think a Kahr Arms K-9(all metal) in 9 mm is a more appropriate suggestion and a better gun, but thats just my opinion. stay safe guys, and if ya gotta bend the rules, do it off camera, i didnt see anything, the guy fell down.

Sad day in Cpd history. Can't seem to do anything anymore without being "insensitive" to certain "groups". Even in the fighting 25th district, you can't even have a "one on one" with a "supervisor" off duty without risking a cr# for "freedom of speech" conversation . geezus, lighten up Francis! <69>

Well, excuuuuuse me. At no time is a beat down like the Sgt. took justifiable, but to get on an elevator full of (mostly) black folks and say, Oh, this must be the n****r elevator, that shouldn't OFFEND anyone? You honestly believe that that kind of statement is simply 'insensitive?' My God, after all this time, some of 'you people' still don't get it...those are STILL fighting words! Now, I'm not going to say I'm going to bash the brains in of every bigot I encounter, because I don't have that many hours in the day, but don't be surprised if somebody calls you out on that shit if YOU are dumb enough to say it within earshot of those intended, sober OR not!

Hey moron, have you forgotten innocent until proven guilty? Were you on the elevator? Were you present for the Aggravated Battery? Do you have some inside knowledge of what happened? How about shutting the fuck up and for once believe in one of your own before calling them goofs and finding them guilty. Do not believe everything you read or see in the media asshole.

11/09/2014 12:10:00 AM

Hey Asshole, the same can be said in regards to the statements of the blacks...INNOCENT until proven guilty...apparently, the VIDEO FOOTAGE from the garage allowed them to walk...

Lenard Clar didn't say anything and he was beat unconscious and still kicked after that. He suffered brain damage and spent time in a coma. 1 of the 3 went to prison. You're talking about "reverse" this like history doesn't record more of the "reverse." Good luck on that one.

This version of the story told by the "witnesses" (co-defendants) seems unlikely. Who would say that in an elevator full of black people? Sounds like some good coaching from a plaintiff's attorney. This is a skillful lawyer's attempt to turn the beating and robbery of a police sergeant's gun into a lawsuit where the offenders do not get charged and get paid at the same time. If you think plaintiff's attorneys don't coach and help manufacture their client's story then you've never dealt with them.

So you got called a bitch at the end of the day? Ok....ask some dark skinned female POs if they have ever been called black bitch by black people? When they tell you yes, you'll need another theory for why you got called white bitch.

What bothers me is the double standard. Officers use racial slurs but did not commit a crime. Officers white. Black commander charged with a crime gets to keep his guns and work at HQ while still making exempt pay. the Superintendent defends him in the media. Did the officers get to keep their guns? Where is the Superintendent saying these officers are innocent until the investigation is complete.

That commander was doing police work, not taking an early duck, getting drunk on the city's dime, using racial epithets , filing false reports or standing by while a sgt was getting beatened or robbed.
Assume the Supt and City hall has far more info on that commander's case than you or the idiot media would ever have.
and as to the racial bias, wait until you see what else is going to materialize in that commander's case...

At the end of the news story, the arrestee's attorney said that the police should have identified themselves as such and it would have stopped further violations of the law. Really? I would think that if a gang was beating down a citizen, then announcing to the gang that said citizen was also a police officer might just make things worse for the victim. Maybe I'm just too cynical....

"if these shitheads were involved in a verbal altercation with the Sgt, who then made a racial comment, and a fight ensued as a result, don't you think the normal response by a "innocent citizen" would be to call the Police? EMS? But they didn't do that did they? They stole his firearm and fled. And only after having their faces and vehicle on every newspaper and news report did the one turn himself in. How about some loyalty? If it was you laying in a hospital bed, not being able to defend yourself, wouldn't you at least want your own fellow Officers to give you the benefit of the doubt? We expect the public to be against us without any type of knowledge of the truth, especially in todays world, but lets stand together."

Sorry Pal, I don't have blind allegiance just because he wears a uniform. You make the racial comment as thought that is something normal or it was also "innocent". You sound like a fool. Loyalty? "benefit of the doubt?" GTFOH, that shit went away a looooong time ago, stop supporting b.s. dummy. If you wear a badge, people don't get prosecuted by the "benefit of doubt"? So are you saying the people in the elevator just beat the poor "innocent" sergeant's ass for no reason. You really should just STFU, you sound stupid!

Based on your inability to even spell "minimum wage", I can't see how you could possibly think you even deserve McDonalds pay, let alone what you make after that 11% raise.

You guys defending these goofs will be eating crow when all the facts are done rolling in. Have you forgotten in "29 and a day" that we have rules, both on and off duty that we're bound to follow? Does "held to a higher standard" ring a bell? Hate to say it but these assclowns effed up bigtime. Some guys never seem to learn that they're not invincible after a few cocktails and that the piece of tin in their pocket isn't a carte Blanche pass to act like fools. They want to - AND WILL - make an example of these guys, and they have all the ammo they need to do so. FACT. And I'll be the first to say "told you so" as this latest black eye to CPD unfolds.

Plenty of quiet neighborhood joints to drink in. But, they stayed downtown. Were probably on the clock, too. For a lousy 4 hours they are going to screw themselves. If you are downtown or in the ghetto the chances of something fucked up happening go way up.
