McMixedMessages

  • Chicago police Superintendent Garry McCarthy said Monday he was concerned that the criminal charges against an off-duty detective involved in a fatal shooting in 2012 might cause other officers to hesitate before opening fire when they feel their lives are in danger.

    "It provides a safety hazard," McCarthy told reporters after a promotion ceremony at Navy Pier for about 100 new detectives and several captains and commanders. "And my concern was how is this going to affect policing in general in the Chicago Police Department because every single officer who's out there now might be in a position where they hesitate, and as a result, they could lose their lives."

    McCarthy said he didn't think Detective Dante Servin should have been criminally charged, but he wouldn't explain why, saying he wanted to wait until the Independent Police Review Authority, the city agency that probes police-involved shootings and officer misconduct, completes its investigation. The agency had put its probe on hold until Servin's acquittal last week on a charge of involuntary manslaughter.
But then he's going on a "listening tour," no doubt at the behest of Rahm - because guess who he's listening to?
  • Taking a page from Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s 2010 campaign playbook, Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy and his top brass are going on a “listening tour.”

    McCarthy is trying to mend the strained relationship between the department and minority communities.

    The recent acquittal of Detective Dante Servin on involuntary manslaughter charges in the fatal shooting of Rekia Boyd in 2012 was the latest controversy to stoke animosity toward the police in African-American neighborhoods. Questionable police actions in other cities - from Ferguson, Missouri, to Staten Island, New York, to Baltimore - haven’t helped here, either.

    McCarthy will meet with residents and community leaders to “hear about the issues that matter most to them, address public safety and continue to build trust between the police department and the communities they serve,” the department said in a prepared statement.
You know what? That article from yesterday about the young cops throwing a football around a fucked-up vacant lot in North Lawndale - that would probably do more to alleviate the "strained relationship" than twenty McStretlight "listening tours" with all his top brass could ever hope to accomplish.

Hey Gar? Be sure you bring along Al "Dunkin" Wysinger along, the First Deputy with no actual power, who can tell the community how he wants coppers out there putting "hands on people (and folks)" and "don't worry about the lawsuits." That'll go over real well. And your Deputy of CAPS, a dead-end spot previous superintendents have managed to shoehorn embarrassing or incompetent exempts into. Otherwise your "top brass" is going to look awfully pasty.

Why do superintendents use recruit graduations to warn of dire circumstances and to threaten new officers?

My class got a lecture on theft, thanks to some headline du jour. A friend's class got a lecture on not taking bribes, under threat of prison. Family members must be bewildered by these stupid, negative speeches. (Mom asked if someone in the class had gotten into trouble.)

On one of the happiest, most gratifying days of your life, with your whole bright and shiny career in front of you, it would be nice to hear something uplifting and positive, not a lecture.

If he truly gave a fuck about our safety and well being, he wouldn't be destroying this department by means of a de facto "lay-off."

Shutting down detective areas.
Consolidating districts and busting out city-wide units, condemning coppers to cross-town commutes then putting a brick on bids to keep coppers from bidding to districts close to home when EVERYBODY knows those same districts could stand an infusion of 75 - 100 coppers easily.

You have small, majority non taxpaying districts with nearly 500 officers and large districts full of taxpayers and contributors with less than 300 being invaded by shitbirds fleeing THEIR over-Policed breeding grounds to hunt where The Police ain't.

Put that shit in your Compstat pipes and blow bubbles with it, you gold star charlatans...

Are you f'nig kidding me! Think what you want about the State's Attorney charging this cop, but if McCarthy had a problem with it, he should have said so at the time this officer was charged!!! Total Pu*sy! Now he has an opinion. If Cline or even Hilliard thought their guy was getting screwed, they would have stood up. Damn.
Sheahan backed his guys to a fault. But they NEVER waited till the end of the court case to "suddenly" come to their defense. What a weasel. It's real easy to be a hero when everyone else has done the hard work. Grow some balls McCarthy. Look to Sheahan or Cline for some help. Bitch

I am SO tired of hearing about the ineptness of the CPD.

Time for McCarthy to go. Time for the over-promoted white shirts to go.

Time to get back to real policing with real leadership.

Look at Baltimore. A perfect picture of total ineptness. Chicago will do all it can to match or surpass that if something "hits the fan".

Can't find the right person to replace McCarthy? You ain't looking too hard!

Imagine Sheriff Arpaio coming to Chicago. Or even the sheriff from Milwaukee - David Clarke.

You won't find leaders in the CPD hierarchy

ALL of them are over-promoted clout hacks. So no "promotion from within".

When outsiders can evaluate, measure, and plainly see the lack of leadership in CPD, it's time to make some changes.

REAL changes, not musical chairs with merit hacks.

Not a LEO, JAFO

Wow! History does repeat itself! I recall when Supt Conlisk ( I man that I liked and respected) did pretty much the same thing. He went around with his top deputies and listened to the public at gatherings around the city. It did not go so well. most of them devolved into shouting matches. Renault Robinson, then head of the afro American patrolmans league was in most of the crowds wearing his uniform with a white traffic hat stirring things up. I have a feeling that this will not do much better. I was at two of Conlisk's gatherings on the south side. He was one of the better supes that I worked for. This occurred around 1973.

Go on your listening tour and what will you hear? Do you really think you will be "educated" by the "uneducated?"

The problems won't get solved by "listening" to them. They are the ones that need to listen.

The only way to get people to stick to a moral, non-criminal lifestyle is through fear. After 6 years of Obama, and a media gone leftist, the general populace has come to believe that the police are the enemy, when, in fact, the only enemy they have is the one looking back in the mirror.

It's only a matter of time until the rioting comes here, and when it does, the community will finally say, enough is enough, let the police loose. That's when they will start "listening."

OT: A member of my small-town police force recently was called to a domestic dispute by a baby-momma. She wanted to use the cop(s) against her baby's dad, who desires more than the pittance of child visitation the momma offers. The cop clearly could see there was no issue and he was being used by this woman. She called the cops to get them to show up when baby was being dropped off to mom by the dad. The cop chatted with the dad and was about as clear-eyed and full of common sense as you could ever dream.
I've never had contact with CPD, but I can say for sure that out here we have some incredibly great people wearing the uniform.

Speaking of mixed messages....

BHO interrupted his news conference with the Japanese Prime Minister to address what has been happening in Baltimore. For a moment he was absolutely righteous and eloquent saying that there was no excuse for the crimes committee there. That he felt sorry for the injured police officers. That bringing a crow bar to loot a store was stealing and setting fire to a neighborhood was arson.

Then, either his teleprompter broke down or he realized that wasn't his real message and he did a slow motion Shortshanks Stutter. He started into the old BHO saying how cameras were exposing how the police were bad and he couldn't take over all the police but he could steer them in a different direction.

Dude was on the radio this morning explaining to the dumb white announcers why this Baltimore "protest" was occurring. Dude said every time the black man develops some way to make money to support hisself "they" pass a law and come and arrest the black man. I guess "we" are "they."

He then explained that the black man found way to make money through selling cigarettes, no taxes of course, and "they" passed a law against that keeping the black man down again.

He wouldn't go into detail about those "other" things except to try and say entrepreneurial activities. You know. Thinking on his feet kind of thing.

Wouldn't address the main problem of black people just don't want to follow the rules and obey laws. Notice how the rioting doesn't really get going until 3 or 4 in the afternoon when dude wakes up after his hard night of drinking and selling the looted booty.

And the announcers, on WGN, ooohed and aaahed and declared he was just the bestest guest on their show maybe forever. That just made me sick and off went WGN, maybe forever.

I happen to be the original poster.
It happened to me, too. Not that somebody clouted got it, but that they just 'forgot' to put my name on the program or acknowledge me at the ceremony. And, after I'd worked my ass off for it, spent off-time helping others get it, I got zip. I was mortified. (But hey, my homeroom instructor said if it meant that much to me, he'd write up a note that said I should have gotten it and it was an oversight. I'm sure my dad would have been impressed by a note. God love you, Ed Shannon, but a note wasn't going to cut it.)

It didn't color my career, though. I worked hard, I got promoted, I made great friends and had a good run. Being dissed like that annoys me to this day, but I wasn't about to let it ruin my life or my career. For what it's worth, I'm really sorry for what happened to you.

Sounds like the assholes in Baltimore. Nice going - you didn't get aced out of an award because of someone with more clout than you, you got aced out because you're a jag off. How's your family like that?

I hear he kept his ex-wife's wedding dress in a box under the stairs at a brownstone in Brooklyn.

The last real 1st Deputy was who, John Thomas? I think once Dana Starks brought his mumbling ass in there is when they stripped all power from the job. 1st Deputy was once the most powerful post on the CPD. Now it is an office for the ceremonial black man.

Off topic but I just found out today that an exam for bomb and arson was administered this past sunday. A lot of people I spoke with had no idea either. Any suggestions on how to approach this with FOP? Thanks

Wow, that was a good laugh. Approach it with FOP, good one. First you need to put your Bozo the clown outfit on. Then go down to FOP and try to convince them you are serious about this, really serious. Bring Bucket No. 6 with you so you can play the Grand Prize Game with Dean.

Instead of "Hands up Don't Shoot" t-shirts, the police should start wearing "Hands up Don't Police." Just give them a report and wait for the next call. This is what they want.

When will the Detective be reinstated and given his back pay???

Never.
The next step is the G charging him with a violation of civil rights.

It's a sad statement when all the politicians want to do is placate, and cater to, the beast.

4/28/2015 12:19:00 PM
You forgot to mention that the third part after placating and catering; giving them everything for nothing in exchange for their votes. The everything for nothing that we pay for. I have my own family to provide for and I'm tired of the government taking from me and giving it to able-bodied people who refuse to work. The problem with socialism is you eventually run out of other peoples money. Just imagine if all the entitlements were eliminated. People would end up in one of four places, cemetery, prison, place of employment or school. It's a win -win situation. No more selling dope on the streets because if your working or in school there's nobody to sell the dope and no more victims to be shot. Why is it in working class neighborhoods there is nobody on the streets? Because they're working or in school. It's all about choices. If you choose to work or go to school preparing yourself for the workforce you become a productive, self supporting member of society. If you choose the thug life you end up in jail or the cemetery. It's that simple.
The society we have today is manufactured by our politicians who are throwing our tax dollars at a minority of our population so they can be re-elected. All entitlements will be eliminated before you even think of diminishing my pension. When you back a police officer into a corner leaving him no options, don't expect to emerge unscathed from the situation you created.

"After that, I never felt the slightest guilt for hitting the medical or stealing overtime. The city paid dearly for running a corrupt clout heavy police department and humiliating me in front of my family. How many new young PO's go through something like that and say right then, fuck it, and start screwing the city. For me, it didn't end until retirement. They paid for the entire 29 and a day. And I don't give a shit who likes it or not. That was my payback.

If you could leave your address, I have a physical skills award lying in a box somewhere. I'd be more than happy to send it to you.
I'm serious Jagoff, think of yourself as vet who finally got his due.

Awesome. You're also screwing the taxpayer. And over your career, your attitude rubs off on younger officers, who repeat this same behavior. And you getting butthurt over not getting an award? Seriously? Do you do the same if you get your feelings hurt on the street by a civilian?

I sure hope you're not a real officer. I don't even have the words to fully articulate my disgust.

Why are you sorry for this loser? He just told you he spent his entire career stealing your tax money because he didn't get some silly award. What a miserable little man. Not enough love from your mother?

The new PPOs R being trained NOT 2 throw in slips when they make late arrests. I just asked one to fill a slip out at noon and I'd take it to the Lt. The PPO didn't want to cause any trouble. That shits got to stop. Working Mids and there till Noon demands a slip.
I started watching them and asking if they handed in their slips and same from 2 other PPOs that just got of their PPO status. They have em brain washed in our District.

I happen to be the original poster.
It happened to me, too. Not that somebody clouted got it, but that they just 'forgot' to put my name on the program or acknowledge me at the ceremony. And, after I'd worked my ass off for it, spent off-time helping others get it, I got zip. I was mortified. (But hey, my homeroom instructor said if it meant that much to me, he'd write up a note that said I should have gotten it and it was an oversight. I'm sure my dad would have been impressed by a note. God love you, Ed Shannon, but a note wasn't going to cut it.)

It didn't color my career, though. I worked hard, I got promoted, I made great friends and had a good run. Being dissed like that annoys me to this day, but I wasn't about to let it ruin my life or my career. For what it's worth, I'm really sorry for what happened to you.

4/29/2015 01:15:00 AM


The award means nothing. The humiliation and embarrassment in front of family is the big thing. And it was a harbinger of many years of this dept.'s bullshit. It wasn't a mistake, it was on purpose. I saw many promotions stolen, I saw good people get screwed so some bosses blow job princess got what she wanted. Don't tell me about stealing time. Just look at any tact team. What is a duck day? There is no code on the A&A's for a duck day. That is theft. I've seen fistfights in a station over one guy who thinks another guy got to steal more time. You learn real quick it is all bullshit. Very few angels on this job.

Yeah, well there'll be hell to pay if some sharp attorney gets a notion to ask questions on the stand as to whether certain things were done, written, collected or generated whether on or off-duty. That happened a lot when I worked some Federal cases and when records of overtime slips couldn't be produced, things got dicey sometimes. We didn't lose whole cases, but we lost a couple of charges. Don't be stupid. If you worked, you worked.

You didn't get a passing grade in observation and perception, did you?

I said I was sorry for what happened to him, not that I was sorry for how he chose to deal with it.

And taking shots at somebody's mother, when you can't think of anything intelligent to say, is more than a tad juvenile, don't you think?
