Who Are These People?

  • Chicago cops should face mandatory firing when they engage in the so-called “code of silence,” according to a nearly two-year study of the department’s disciplinary process.

    The department should put officers on notice that they run the risk of sacrificing their jobs when they cover up for misconduct by their fellow officers, according to the “Preventing and Disciplining Police Misconduct” report released Tuesday.

    Former Assistant U.S. Attorney Ron Safer, who is with the law firm Schiff Hardin, conducted the review for free along with A.T. Kearney, a management consultant firm. The review was first announced in January 2013.
A "free" review, eh? You get what you pay for evidently. We already run this risk. If the Department can prove that you had knowledge of misconduct, you can be held culpable. We say "can" because everyone knows the clouted are covered.
  • The department already has adopted some recommendations of the study. For example, police Supt. Garry McCarthy recently approved a pilot program for officers to wear body cameras.

    The department increased the number of officers in the department’s Bureau of Internal Affairs from 102 in 2013 to 125 this year, according to city officials.
That's probably the only unit in the city to actually expand in recent years. Detectives? Undermanned. ETs? Pathetically shorthanded. K9? Good luck. But hey, IAD is expanding, even as complaints are decreasing. Why is that?
  • City officials noted that Chicago has started “procedural justice training” for every police officer. Other cities like New York have expressed interest in the program, which is intended to build officers’ understanding, fairness and respect for the public, according to the city.
Yeah. Okay. And get a load of this set of paragraphs:
  • The report not only addressed the potential problem of cops lying to cover up misconduct — but of citizens lying to get cops in trouble.

    “We recommend that only certain false complainants — those who file either multiple false complaints or a single, particularly egregious, false complaint — be referred to the [Cook County] state’s attorney and face consequences for their actions,” the report said.
So...cops are held accountable for "code of silence" incidents, even though the actual misconduct is usually conducted out of sight of witnesses, not in front of someone you don't know or trust. But citizens who swear out false affidavits, a felony in Illinois (it's perjury), and the free review says, "Don't bother prosecuting these crimes." What a bunch of assholes. What if the citizen is lying about....misconduct? And then you get hung up denying you saw any, but have to drop paper, write statements, clear your name and work history, but the complainer walks? Fucking brilliant!

And this closer is just amazing:
  • For the city, one of the practical purposes of the report is to help bring down mammoth legal expenses related to lawsuits against the police. Over the past decade, the city has spent more than half a billion dollars on police-related settlements, judgments, legal fees and other costs.

    In a prepared statement, Mayor Rahm Emanuel said the city is making progress “to prevent the type of police misconduct that has occurred in the past, and to respond to any police misconduct swiftly, consistently and with transparency.”
Yeah, we tried that before and actually cut payouts by millions - it was called "fighting the allegations," and it worked. J-Fledgar left three legacies for this department:
  1. rifles (but that would have happened anyway with the Olympics);
  2. fight lawsuits in court to cut down on frivolous suits;
  3. fuck the blue shirts every chance you get
As soon as Rahm arrived, Corp Counsel went back to settling lawsuits in order to enrich connected firms. J-Fled's most successful initiative went right out the window as soon as he was a memory. And you want to "prevent the type of police misconduct that has occurred in the past," then fire the connected, untouchable clout babies who cost you millions. You know, like merit sergeants raping women, merit sergeants firing guns at suburban cops, merit detectives shoplifting, merit commanders sticking guns in people's mouths...things like that.

Guess what, cops are not popular. They are, with some cause, thought to be enemies of the people. In order to counter this perception, cops must be squeaky clean, and above board. They must be totally honest, have the highest integrity and be totally transparent. They must treat every citizen with the utmost dignity and respect at all times. In every case a citizen must be given the benefit of the doubt. Cops must learn that they are the servants of the people, that they are there to serve and protect the people not to harm or kill them. Cops must not even draw their gun until actually fired upon, and must always use minimal force in restraining a citizen. To many cops have run amok among the citizenry, and the wrath of people has been aroused. A new day is dawning.

You're firing on all cylinders with this thread, SCC.

Allow me to add just three things:

1) Anyone who volunteers to participate in "anonymous" surveys - much like the most recent "morale" survey conveniently segueing "Legitimacy Training" - is a fucking moron. If you can't see what the end game is there you need to turn in your button.

2) Any officer (CPD or otherwise) who Tweets, Facebooks, Hashtags, MySpaces, Instagrams - or whatever the fucking term of the week is - their day to day existence on the job for the whole world to see needs to be beat senseless.

3) THE MSM IS NOT YOUR FRIEND. Quit giving these cocksuckers ammunition that they'll eventually use against us.

I didn't think things could get worse than when the Gen-Xers started coming on the job... but then along came the entitled, raised-on-technology, everyone-gets-a-trophy Millenials.

SCC, again thanks for the forum here. I was just thinking, after reading about how Rahm wants more "transparency" for the police.

I would like to see Rahm wear a body camera too. I mean, we the taxpayers who pay his salary, shouldn't we know what he is up to every minute of the day that he is on city-related business?? shouldn't we know how he is representing us, when he talks to all those corporations who receive taxpayer TIF money? Shouldn't we know how he decides what to do with out tax money and how he decides to spend it?

I mean, you can't get any more transparent than having your mayor wear a body camera for the rest of us to see exactly what he is doing, right?

Who are these people? They are products of the communist subversion that infiltrated this country decades ago. They have COMPLETELY taken over the educational system in this country (think professor Bill Ayers UIC and his whore wife at Northwestern) and now you have these brainwashed "progressives" running around tearing down what is left of American traditional values.

The American police officer was always a threat to them. We were unique in the world. We stood for the right thing and you could always count on your beat cop to keep you safe from the bad guys and stand for what was good and decent. We were never loved, but we were respected as law and order American people. We weren't the Third World cop that was an agent of the socialist state. Soon they will have their dream of a national police controlled by the socialist government and they will be used against the people.

If you stay quiet and don't stand up loudly and forcefully against these people when you see them, if you don't get in THEIR face like they get in yours, it will be too late. You can't just sit back quietly and laugh at them any longer. You have to actively fight them because they are a cancer on America. No one would have thought it could be this bad where criminals who attack the police are backed by the likes of Obamao and Hoder. But it's here now. It is a sad reality. We need to stand up as Americans against this evil.

These people are socialist, or progressives or whatever else the call themselves these days and they are not friends of America. They are truly evil people with a sick agenda. How they can openly say that they will not prosecute every false complaint shows that they support criminals over police and the good citizens the police protect. Their goal is to destroy the police as they exist because they know that the police would stand in the way of an unconstitutional government that would trample the peoples rights.

Great forum! I think if your going to put body cameras on 1 public servant (police being the lowest rung of public servant according to the courts) then ALL public servants should wear them when in the course of their duties. This includes, but is not limited to mayor, alderman, department heads, streets and San, firemen, park district, and any elected or appointed official. Let's make it easy, if your paying in to, collecting a public pension, or receiving any sort of payment of public dollars, you must wear a body camera. It's to help develope public trust and understanding of how our government operates day to day. It will also allow for oversight on how to do thing better in the future. What do you think about that Rham and Garry?

Don't forget the public hates us right now. Police are evil, prejudice, and unfair. The politicians can't stand us, we get paid too much, our pensions cost that we earned is causing them to be accountable for the theiving these politicians did for years. Bosses do absolutely nothing for us ( a few exceptions to this, not many though), they will throw you under a bus quick, there is no support or teaching from bosses these days. They will support themselves and that's it and they can't teach what they don't know, but if you ask them they know everything. We are set up for failure. When you figure this out everyone moves on to the next guy to try to sell them on the "team", "brotherhood", or the "family". It's all smoke and mirrors, complete bullshit. Wake up and take care of yourself and your fellow PO's, at the end of the day that is usually all you got.

Have a safe and Merry Christmas and Happy New Year boys and girls.

I have always thought that any "merit" promotions should be done by an outside panel looking at the file and application of the officer. And, the file should be a blind file, one where race , name and sex cannot be determined. But, that would undermine the real goal of merit promotions, wouldn't it? That is to promote those with clout and secondary to promote minorities who cannot achieve a passing score on a test of answers from the department's rules and procedures. Pass a test with a cutoff score of 50% or less.

Yes, as one poster put it, these are dark days. It is always darkest before the dawn, and the next two years are going to be very dark, indeed.

Until Obama leaves office, his blundering politics, best described as a form of cancer, will spread rapidly.

His legacy will be one of trying to destroy this country. He has gone very far down this road, aided by corrupt leftist politicians and a liberal, self-aggrandizing, shameful, clueless, amateur media.

But homegrown anarchists like Obama and those who support him have failed to read the warning signs of the last election. Most Americans do not want or value the "progressive ideology" and the liberal cause is slowly unraveling.

For example, the main cheerleader for the liberal cause, the New York Times, yesterday laid off 100 journalists because the NYT is heading for bankruptcy. A lovesick teenager on Youtube gets more daily views than the online NYT.

Keep the faith, stay positive, support each other and take pride in your strength and resilience. One day you will tell your grandchildren about how you weathered the darkest days this country has seen since 1776. Take a deep breath and have courage - St. Michael's got your back.

God Bless you all, have a Merry Christmas and a Healthy, Positive New Year.

I've read about half of that 75 page *Free Report* and personally I think it's a load of liberal bullshit.

First being that the authors admit that they *DID NOT* take into account the feasibility of any of their recommendations being enacted; from the costs involved, the Law(s), Labor Agreements, and political fallout. In short it's more Liberal Pie-In-The-Sky Nonsense.

But the major reason I think it's a load of liberal bullshit is that almost every pronoun used when referring to the Superintendent and Police Officers in the feminine form like; 'She' and 'Her' instead of being gender neutral as one would and should expect. And this 'feminine favoritism' isn't any typo, or by accident, it's repeated over and over.

So it's good that it was done at no cost because that's all it's worth, zero.

---- I didn't get to the part about not perusing those who make false charges against officers, but I can just imagine their reasons for that brain-fart of an idea. ----

"Respect for the public"

I was on for 26 years, and I gave respect to the people that deserved it. Like a working man who's car was stolen or his tools taken. A single Mom trying to get by as best she can. The little brother or sister at the scene who's gang banging brother was shot. People in car accidents, victims of sexual assault, parents of a now dead child, no matter the reason. We are human, not robots.

But if you disrespect me, then you get it right back. Call me names, shout at me, put hands on me? Forget it, you get nothing. I come into your house on a domestic, and you have the big screen surround sound, empty bottles of VSOP or packs of Newports that cost $8.00 a pop and expensive clothes but your two year old is walking around in a shitty pee stained diaper, lice in her hair and she is eating a bag a chips and drinking a purple pop? You get no respect there amigo, none at all. You want respect? Fucking earn it.

"Guess what, cops are not popular. They are, with some cause, thought to be enemies of the people. In order to counter this perception, cops must be squeaky clean, and above board. They must be totally honest, have the highest integrity and be totally transparent. They must treat every citizen with the utmost dignity and respect at all times. In every case a citizen must be given the benefit of the doubt. Cops must learn that they are the servants of the people, that they are there to serve and protect the people not to harm or kill them. Cops must not even draw their gun until actually fired upon, and must always use minimal force in restraining a citizen.

Guess what, criminals are not popular. They are, with proper cause, enemies of the people. In order to counter this perception, criminals must become squeaky clean, and above board. They must be totally honest, have the highest integrity and be totally transparent. They must treat every citizen and police officer with the utmost dignity and respect at all times. In every case a criminal must not be given the benefit of the doubt until proven so in a court of law. Criminals must learn that they are not servants of the people, that they are not there to harm or kill them citizens or cops. Criminals must not even possess a gun at all, and must never use force against a police officer or citizen. Too many criminals and criminal politicians have run amok among the citizenry, and the wrath of people has been aroused. A new day is dawning.

Hey anonymous, you have rocks for brains. Respect is earned. We also don't go to work to get hurt. We absolutely do NOT have to wait till fired upon to pull our weapons out. You're living in a delusional fantasy land. Learn a use of force module. Minimal force doesn't have to be used if the module dictates otherwise. The number one objective of the job, even before protect and serve, is to GO HOME SAFE.

2) Any officer (CPD or otherwise) who Tweets, Facebooks, Hashtags, MySpaces, Instagrams - or whatever the fucking term of the week is - their day to day existence on the job for the whole world to see needs to be beat senseless.

3) THE MSM IS NOT YOUR FRIEND. Quit giving these cocksuckers ammunition that they'll eventually use against us.

Well guess what dipshit? You and your pathetic occupy pansies can eat a large ball of shit with your leftist "we're all victims" bullshit.

Police will NEVER give up the right to protect their own lives before that of the offender in front of them. In your warped leftist victim mentality, a cop is only to fire his weapon AFTER he's been shot eh?

What a fucking dumbfuck you and your ilk are.

It's a fucking JOB motherfucker, we're no fucking "servant" to you just because you read that idealistic bullshit tripe foisted off on you in a government description of a job to make you feel like your ass is supposed to be patted dry by the police.

And AS it's a fucking job, when those who actually have the balls to perform that job are confronted with a "citizen" with a weapon that can cause great bodily harm or death, they're gonna get piped every time. And when they refuse to disarm themselves with that deadly weapon, they're going to be shot, to kill, because police will never be held to your bullshit TV standard of attempting to "shoot to maim".

You think a new day is coming? Doubt it little gentle kid. The police will NEVER give up their own lives for a job. It ain't NEVER gonna be forced upon them to get killed just because you looting fucks think it's your right to threaten police.

Get out of your mom's basement and take a bath occupier. Your days of thinking you can do whatever you want and have the laws changed to do it are never gonna happen.

Cops will NEVER give up their right to protect their own lives, not even for little dipshit losers like you.

The problem, in a nutshell, is the following:

The 1%er government propagandists have destroyed this country. The MISERY index is off the charts, regardless of what lies the 1%er government foists off on the public to keep the 1%er markets making more money from thin air.

People in this country are 10x more pissed off at their government than ever before. NO ONE trusts their own government anymore, therefore everyone who lives under it fears they no longer have any control over their own country and will have their lives destroyed in short order thanks to the 1%.

So because more and more people are living paycheck to paycheck or in poverty, their lives are living hell and they're getting tired of it.

Nowhere is this more prevalent than in the black community. They see more and more every day that this country is turning to compete shit and will someday collapse on itself.... so why the fuck should they care about a fucking thing? What the fuck can the 1%er do to them that they don't already live in?

Answer: nothing. So who the fuck cares? Let's go fucking apeshit and start committing more and more violent acts in public. Let's just fucking riot against the fucking police, maybe we'll get rich seeing as how the government loves to give away money to pacify the poor.

So the black community all across this country becomes what they've always been described as, violent animals who will do whatever they want to take from others or kill for pleasure.

And when they start pointing their bullshit at the police, they get shot and killed.... who'd ever guess?

The animal is increasing their violence exponentially.... and when the police intervene the animal dies as it should for the acts committed against society.

And the 1%er government sides with the animal... because hey, their goal is to abolish the middle class in this country and government employees are the last of that species in any number.

They account for 13% of the population but commit 50%/of the violent crime per FBI stats. Another great study would be why the media tries so hard to turn things into racial issues and why they taint the evidence to make blacks victims all the time. This country has sunk to such depths, where thug gang bangers have more credibility than those sworn to protect.

Don't forget the public hates us right now. Police are evil, prejudice, and unfair. The politicians can't stand us, we get paid too much, our pensions cost that we earned is causing them to be accountable for the theiving these politicians did for years. Bosses do absolutely nothing for us ( a few exceptions to this, not many though), they will throw you under a bus quick, there is no support or teaching from bosses these days. They will support themselves and that's it and they can't teach what they don't know, but if you ask them they know everything. We are set up for failure. When you figure this out everyone moves on to the next guy to try to sell them on the "team", "brotherhood", or the "family". It's all smoke and mirrors, complete bullshit. Wake up and take care of yourself and your fellow PO's, at the end of the day that is usually all you got.



WOW.. Seems somebody learned a lesson. You are right, these bosses will NEVER back you against another boss or a higher up, you will get fucked, I guarantee you. You see they won't buck their boss because usually the higher up got them to their spot or they need the higher up to make them for the next bump, so the PO who tried or did the right thing is the one who gets fucked again. So fuck these 2 faced coward bosses and fuck the double talking, thieving politicians! Answer your radio and fuck this place, your life will be much easier.

I imagine I am like most of us, I follow the rules, as stupid as many of them are, but they are the rules we have to follow.

Of course many cops have been fired over the years. There are always some that will do as they want, I was referring to what I think are the majority of us. The majority of us are doing a job and doing it in a manner that causes no problems for our employer or us.

I've sat in classrooms teaching the law you refer to, I don't need to review what I already know. I do however, review what has changed to keep current. I look at the general orders as needed to keep up with what changes.

Yes. A new day is dawning. As the public cries out for a more low key, warm and fuzzy police department, the criminals will realize that they can do their work with far less fear of jail time.

As time goes on, and as your local police become more hamstrung, crime will increase. Of course, you will have the politicians tell you that you are imagining this, crime is down! But you may start to believe otherwise when you find yourself getting dropped by your homeowners insurance because of the multiple break-in claims you have filed over the past 3 years. Or when you open your new auto insurance policy and find out that your rates have doubled because of the multiple damage and theft claims.

The day may come when you get the police force that you want. Hands off, glorified counselors with a badge. And when that happens and you or a loved one ends up in the hospital because they were not fast enough to turn over their wallet or purse, or walked in your home to find 2 "gentle giants" stuffing all your electronics, money and jewelry into back packs and, if you are lucky, only beat you nearly to death, don't worry. An officer will be there to hand you a report and bid you a good day.

Be careful what you wish for.

Obama friend Whitaker declared hostile witness at state grant fraud trial

A Federal judge on Monday declared President Barack Obama’s friend Eric Whitaker a hostile witness in a Chicago couple's multimillion-dollar state grant scam trial.

Judge rejects attempt at secret hearing for Obama pal Whitaker

The rare designation allows prosecutors more leeway in questioning Whitaker, who led the state public health agency when the grants were handed out.

"Respect for the public"

I was on for 26 years, and I gave respect to the people that deserved it. Like a working man who's car was stolen or his tools taken. A single Mom trying to get by as best she can. The little brother or sister at the scene who's gang banging brother was shot. People in car accidents, victims of sexual assault, parents of a now dead child, no matter the reason. We are human, not robots.

But if you disrespect me, then you get it right back. Call me names, shout at me, put hands on me? Forget it, you get nothing. I come into your house on a domestic, and you have the big screen surround sound, empty bottles of VSOP or packs of Newports that cost $8.00 a pop and expensive clothes but your two year old is walking around in a shitty pee stained diaper, lice in her hair and she is eating a bag a chips and drinking a purple pop? You get no respect there amigo, none at all. You want respect? Fucking earn it.

These procedures are being violated everyday. Get partnered with a retarded individual and you can easily get suspended.

According to your statement, no officers have ever been fired for wrongdoing.

Brush up on the law and the General Orders before you get fired.

Damn. Another fucking lawyer, that's why I don't post here often.

Asshat, don't steal, don't use excessive force, don't lie, don't mother fuck everyone you come across, clear from your jobs in a timely manner and by God, you will rarely get suspended and probably not get fired. I imagine I am like most of us, I follow the rules, as stupid as many of them are, but they are the rules we have to follow.

Of course many cops have been fired over the years. There are always some that will do as they want, I was referring to what I think are the majority of us. The majority of us are doing a job and doing it in a manner that causes no problems for our employer or us.

I've sat in classrooms teaching the law you refer to, I don't need to review what I already know. I do however, review what has changed to keep current. I look at the general orders as needed to keep up with what changes.

Partnered up with a retard? Who is the retard if you let that happen to YOU? Moron.

Obviously you are the retard if you are not aware of the stunts that some of the "officers" are pulling or the quality of the recruits who have been coming out of the academy the last few years.

Cuthbert J. Twillie, what is the gender neutral singular pronoun?
<---

When referring to the superintendent the neutral, 'superintendent', should have been used. With references to police they should have used, 'police', 'officer(s)', 'them', or 'they'.

There is no good reason why feminine identifiers were used, none. And imagine the stink that would be raised by Libtards & Femi-Nazis if masculine words were only used like: him, his, and policeMAN.

Politics is Power.

That's all. Any other lens will distort and obscure.

What POWER is sought over you? Who seeks Power over you, why?

Reverse engineering: Power Lawyers seek Power over Blue, investigations, lawsuits, witch-hunts are their method. Power lawyers you know are our actual government if you define a government by who has the Power. Our politicians are a Public Relations Firm to keep up the pretense of The Republic.

The power struggle over Blue that is happening nationwide because local police departments aren't in a direct chain of Command to The White House, DOJ, the DNC, and the Ivy League. We don't have a National Police Force, if we did this wouldn't happen, for then that obstacle to complete Tyranny could be surmounted once.

You are 12,000-17,000 obstacles to Tyranny, the locally responsible police. You are in the way.

They're not assholes, they're not incompetent. For as vile and low as their betrayals and schemes are: IT'S WORKING. As your post above attests.

It's in your interests to either stop being passive about the Power Struggle for local police that is actually happening nationwide and at least start fighting back....

....or give up and get out their way. They're betting on just that. For all your many virtues, you have one trait that is fatal flaw: Cops are mostly followers.

You need some new leaders, and I wouldn't look to City Hall, or the Voters.

Happy Holidays, Be Safe.

All this Political, which means goal is POWER. It's simple enough. A National Police Force, that answers only to Washington.

All of this abuse you the police are being subjected to is political, and it has a goal, Anon New Day Dawning has told you what this goal is: "Only when the federal government takes over all policing will the people be safe and trust in the police restored."

New Day Dawn's looks like paid political troller. Meet who hyped Obama into Power.

Now they want you to walk away. Crime will rise, and "The People" meaning media will call for a National Police Force. You suffer noble Sirs and Ladies for obstruction of Tyranny.

This is all just a power struggle, and that's all.

Be Safe.

Career move into LE in midlife. Advice needed.

41 year old wanting to get into law enforcement and wants advise, help him out.

12/24/2014 09:36:00 AM


I don't know who would hire someone at 41 years of age. Age limit in Chicago is 40. Over that no way. Someone older could get hired with years of prior experience, for instance, a retired police officer or supervisor. But someone coming into it cold at age 41? It is a young man's job.

I would advise to go to Law School, assuming he has a BA or BS, he can get law degree in 3 years and then apply at various states attorney's offices. Still law enforcement and he can do it longer. In Illinois, mandatory retirement at 63. If he is 41 now, by time he gets hired somewhere he might not stand a chance of earning a pension.


I am a retired PO, and I am trying to get into law school, it will keep me busy and keep my brain active and maybe bring in a little dough.

You are absolutely correct!! I remember when the Germans did this back in the 1930's. The Gestapo did wonders as the national police force.

ISP does not have age requirement. They are taking applications. Very professional police department.

To add to the point, you can get implicated just by being on the scene as an assisting officer. Although you cleared the hurdle of avoid a retarded individual for a partner, I am sure that you show up to the jobs of others to assist. That is enough to implicate you. Yes, you are responsible for the other officers just by being on the scene.

Politics is Power. This is a Struggle for the Plenary [Broad] Police Powers which are held locally.

I'm going to be Cold here, for that's a man's work. All respect..

Look. Blue Flu on the job WON'T WORK. They already have the Streets, the Democrats ARE the Streets. What do you think they pay out $1Billion a day for?

The talk this AM is "I'm going home no matter what, let them have the streets." FAIL.

FAIL: 1] they ARE the Streets, more importantly 2] that's not THEIR MOTIVE. Their MOTIVE is Federalizing the Police under Washington. <== They are flat out saying: "A New Day has dawned, you will be servants of the People or face the wrath of the People until Police are Federal."

Sirs that is a paid professional typing that into the comments. They're TELLING YOU Directly what they want.

So if you wish to surrender, go into FOP/PBA/Union and tell them exactly that. Otherwise you have nothing to offer, that's what they want.

And it's not the Gestapo.

It's ObamaCops.

Like ObamaCare it's going to work, too. Save yourselves and give them what they want, not something they already own. The Streets? Who TF wants that?

They're not crazy or assholes. They're just being - political.

Politics is Power. This is a Struggle for the Plenary [Broad] Police Powers which are held locally. They'll keep witch-hunting, doxxing, threatening, beating, killing you until they get what they want.

Unless of course something CHANGES. But so far it hasn't.

Sirs,

Politics is Power.

You can comply all day. It has NOTHING to do with Law, Legal, right, wrong, morality, ethics, politeness, respect, disrespect and yes nothing to do with safety, nothing unto your very lives.

It has to do with WHO holds Plenary Police POWER, and right now that's YOU. So YOU'RE IT.

It's as Fair as say; Tag. Also as easy to understand.

Be Safe.

I didn't think things could get worse than when the Gen-Xers started coming on the job... but then along came the entitled, raised-on-technology, everyone-gets-a-trophy Millenials.

This job is effed from every angle.



Well said, brother. And I thought the old timers that warned me "the only thing the phone in the station is good for is ordering pizzas and making notifications" were paranoid. Turns out they were just way ahead of their time.

I don't want you to give in.

I'm just being cold, cuz it's part of man's work and my function in life.

And if you're going to give in, that's what they want.

If you're not going to give in consider this: A Defense of Evil by Good Men in the name of the Law was always an unstable arrangement, and it's time has ended.

So you will choose your new arrangement, or if you continue to follow [sorry but most Cops are followers, laudable normally but now literally a fatal flaw] if you continue as you have then the choice will be made for you, at present by Rahm and your chain of command.

Consider Sirs, and be safe.

Off to Mass.
