There Goes Dart Again

  • As the violence in Chicago's streets hits the peak summer months, City Hall is receiving reinforcements of sorts from a surprising source: Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart, whose office has begun putting extra boots on the ground in high-crime city neighborhoods.

    So, the Chicago Police Department is graciously thanking the sheriff for his assistance in its time of need, and the sheriff is modestly just trying to do what he can?

    Not exactly. This being Chicago, the story of just what the sheriff is or is not doing has been dragged into Chicago-style electoral and departmental rivalries. Everyone is careful to be polite about it—at least publicly. But here's a tale about the war on crime and the use of your tax dollars that you haven't read elsewhere.
Not that the help isn't appreciated, and we certainly could use a few more residence checks on parolees who flagrant violate the terms of their release with astonishing regularity, but doesn't this just point out the pitiful manpower shortages we're operating under yet again?

Whatever happened to all the extra Fibbies and BATFmen from last Summer?

CCSPD, everywhere except the unincorporated areas they are supposed to patrol and why the response time is ridiculous.

And of course little Tommy is doing this out of his sense of civic duty and his love for press conferences.

Now, kees me you fool!!!!

CCSD? Thought IDOC had this sewed up, from the money they put into new pistols and black armor vests. But then, the guy told me he had a case load of over 200 to try to keep an eye on...and that was west suburban. Chicago? Can't even imagine.

Mmm.

I'm a tad confused about what Tommy 'The Hobo' Dart is doing: i.e.: .......

Before Concealed Carry became law wasn't Tommy 'The Hobo' Dart crying -- and on a daily basis it seemed -- to the press that he didn't have enough manpower, i.e.: Deputies, to perform all the Background Checks/Applications that was 'predicted' from Crook County gun owning residents. I'm pretty sure he did.

But now he apparently not only has enough Deputies to do those CC Background Checks -- the ones he said he couldn't do -- but he also has enough Deputies to 'patrol' Chicago's streets in three CPD Districts during the Summer.

Well...I'm glad his staffing problem is resolved. But then again, what do all these Deputies do the other months of the year when they're not 'out on patrol'? Sitting at home and getting paid. Hiding out in empty Courtrooms? Or Playing Pinochle and Texas Hold-Em in the Jail Basement? Huh, Tommy?

Inquiring minds of taxpayers would like to know, Sheriff.

Tom Dart never met a press release or media appearance he didn't like.

Repression breeds aggression they say.

More "boots on the ground" ha!

Foreign-Born More Likely To Have Job Than Native-Born Americans

http://www.breitbart.com/big-government/2015/05/22/foreign-born-more-likely-to-have-job-than-native-born-americans/

Kicking the door to the country wide open to allow entry of more strangers provides the perfect tools needed to win the hearts and minds so that we need more 'boots on the ground', right? Just a power grab tool.

Why don't Ali Baba and his fifty thieves open the doors to their homes and let 'em in to their lives? Save the unaccompanied children" they cry

How about more living wage jobs and a path to somewhere better?

The failed American dream.

The last resort for many is selling contraband. The only respect they get is thru the barrel of a gun because they don't fit into societies rules.

They make their own rules just like the elite corrupt politicians do.

More boots on the ground? All stick and no carrots

Back against the wall and nothing else to lose makes it a dangerous world.

Happy 4th to all. Nineteen-paul squad those are fireworks not gun shots

Have mercy on the real corrupt parasites holding political offices and looking for non-stop personal handouts instead of working for a living and contributing to the world

You know who you are. What a fine mess you have made of this nation.

Just an observation from the hoods

Send the Sheriffs to 019 and let them work on the violent robberies going on late at night. Better yet, send the sheriff's gang team . Plenty of bangers hanging out robbing folks.

Why do we need more police when we have 760 out there chasing down kids for shooting roman candles? Keep hitting those singles boys and girls.

Just some things that should be clarified.

1. We hate Dart as much as you guys do. A self centered liberal lawyer asshole that surrounds himself with other liberal asshole types.

He hides in his office all day. I mean all day long. Never comes up for air. What he does in there is anyones guess.

We pray for the day when he runs off for a judgeship or whatever. We'll take Burke or even masters over this guy. Heck, we will take another CPD guy if he is worth a damn. Mike Sheahan was a nice man and he liked policemen. I think highly of him. Dart? He has the personality of a wet sponge.

2. We go out on these initiatives because we were ordered to. The bosses have no clue what to do. We take the initiative and got some guns, some contact cards on some real jaggoffs. We have roll call and the bosses have no clue what to do. They are scared shitless for their exempt rank and their unpaid 10 hour days (they make all our exempts work 10 even though they are paid 8!!)

3. We have cops on the job that live in these areas. We have family and friends that live in these areas. Many of our guys take this stuff seriously as we feel that we are protecting the homeland as if it were Sauganash, Beverley, Edison Park, etc.

It is not just writing minorities tickets and stealing their 500 dollar cars. I will turn a 6-303 into a gun (even a found one) if it keeps one of your policemen off the memorial wall and star case.

4. Yes, we have jagoff cops on our job just like you do too. Good news though, the jag off that was stroking cops wifes and kids up near Norwood is retired. We apologize for his actions. Oscar does not represent the whole of the Sheriff's Police. 15 years on, and I have never knowingly stroked a coppers family, a nurse, etc. I am an FTO and I make damned sure my rookies know this.

5. Crains got it wrong as far as what we are doing in 11, 15, 07, etc. We absolutely went on calls with you guys, domestics, etc. to make sure that blue was okay. Never intended on poaching your pinches.

As far as the Sheriff not talking to McCarthy or Rahm. I do not doubt this one bit. The guy is a narcissistic jag off that want them to call him hat in hand and on one knee. (snicker!)

6. We do not do parole checks. The state does this. Our EM deputies checked the house arrests people.

7. Our response time in the unincorporated areas is no better or worse than your (or the suburbs) response times. We get busy. We get arrests. Cars go down on jobs. We have guys on the medical, training, court, etc. Stuff happens. But when I do get there I try my best to deliver the most professional empathetic service that I can. I conduct preliminary investigations where needed and write decent paper (so the detectives tell me)

8. We have clout like you guys do. The chinaman aint dead, his name is SHACKMAN. Our hiring promotion and transfer process is a zoo. I took my last promotional exam a year ago and I am not looking back. Patrolman for life. I am not sweating it. I feed my family, pay my bills and get to ride my Motorcycle now and then. I have no intentions on playing the game again.

Please understand that we are all on the same team. We have jobs to do. We can be hurt and killed like your men and woman have. I will back you up and I expect you to do the same for us in Brown. When I am out there I do what I am told, do it the best way I can and pray that we all go home tonight.

I wish the very best for CPD. Stay safe.

Call the Sheriff's Department and ask that this be done. You pay taxes too!

This was a PROGRAM. Know the difference between a PROGRAM and a PROCESS.

The Sheriff being in the bad city areas is a PROGRAM.


A process is an ongoing thing without a sunset date. It will end around Labor Day or so. Apparently a murder in October aint all that, right?

Yes, Cuthbert-you are confused.

Although all three Departments in the Sheriff's Office (Police, Corrections and Court Services)are "Deputized", those doing the background checks are not those that are from the Sheriff's Police Department. Ask Dart who is doing the backgrounds and why they are assigned to this job. If Dart tells you the interesting truth, you'll understand why.

(Quick note and FACT-CQH inquiries are NOT allowed as part of the background check!! Repeat, NOT allowed! How brilliant is that?)

Sheriff's Police Beat cars are regularly doubled up now with the brilliant idea of sending County cars into the City but CPD, know that there isn't a County Guy out there that wouldn't help you when needed! Know too that most are eager and willing to do the assignment but as change of scenery is nice.

And know that any County Guy would take McCarthy over Dart in a heartbeat except for a small group of ball lickers at CCSPD Headquarters in Maywood.
They would adapt however to McCarthy's own group in a flash as they are so experienced.

This is the same Dart that took a bunch of guys,swore them in and made them Policemen. No academy,no training,nothing. If you were connected,presto,you are now a policeman. Then they go out to the northern suburbs and start PLAYING police but they didn't even know how to do that. Then they get jammed up when they go into a restaurant,start demanding a discount because they think they are the real deal. The real CCSP almost arrested them.
Tell us how it worked Brian.

One Shouldn't throw stones if you live in a glass house, it's not like CPD is the most professional law enforcement organization in the state. I seem to remember many funny fuckups at CPD, to include the idiot kid who signed out a police car and ticket book and worked the street....probably better then the CPD personnel at that location. Granted Dart is a clown, but CPD has had it's share of loser leaders, so before you start making judgements look at yourselves in the mirror first. There are many good policemen in Chicago as there are in the county, how about being a little more humble and lending a hand instead of pointing a finger.....

I saw no county coppers in Austin. Also, Tommy Toupee was taking a break from Backpage and supposedly a fireworks supercop... Congrats on your big pinch in Melrose, you cock! I guess you were too scared to ride around the hood on Saturday night to make more firework arrests.
