More CompStat Questions

Going over yesterday's top post, a number of commentators mentioned this:
  • 002nd District Commander T Williams proves to all in attendance at COMPSTAT this a.m. that the Burger Queen was not the dumbest Commander ever. Paraphrasing the exchange.

    Tracy: "Go on to the next shooting".

    Williams: "I have to admit, this is a murder that we should have prevented! We failed. My officers failed to stop this.
Um, really? As we've stated here and many other places (namely the bar....Shirley Temples for everyone! We swear!), if someone needs to get killed, the killers are going to find a way to kill that person. Step one usually involves picking a spot where the police aren't, which in Chicago means you've just increased your chances of getting away with it by nearly 80%.

More interesting would be a couple plaintiff attorneys we'd like to introduce Commander Williams to who would just LOVE to get that statement on the stand under oath.
  • So, former-Commander Williams....what's that? Oh, sorry, Twice-demoted-former-Commander Willams, you're saying the agent of the City of Chicago, namely the Chicago Police Department, who "meritoriously" promoted you how many times again? You, as a duly appointed leader of that Department were able to prevent this homici...sorry, "killing," by what means again? And you failed to do so?

    Your Honor, we'd like to enter for a Directed Verdict against the plaintiffs Williams, McCarthy, Emanuel, the Chicago Police Department and the City of Chicago. $100 million would do nicely, thank you.
And this moron made it twice.

You should drop the quotes and re read you're previous post just to be fair... The post said numerous times that it was not exact quotes and was loosely translated... Let's call out the dogs after we hear what was really said.. Even a difference of two or three words would completely shoot down this little scenario here. Just playing devils advocate.. Let's think from both sides kids

The only way you could successfully sue the city for such a case would be to prove GROSS negligence or willful or wanton conduct. For instance, if the officers stopped at 35th and King at the White Castle instead of immediately going to a job that they were just dispatched to. (A case that happened about 10 or 15 years ago if you remember)

A crisis of leadership leads directly to a crisis of morale. Although calling this class of political appointees "leaders" is a misnomer. These Commanders, this Superintendent, are not leaders in any way. As I've heard some wise ass at work say, "I wouldn't follow these creeps to 7-11 to buy a cup of coffee."

So much for the court rulings that the police do not have a duty to "protect/prevent harm" against you. Williams will get a lot of travel time being "feted" around the country as an expert witness as to how the police failed in their duty to prevent one harming another. At least he would be gone from the 002 most of the time.

OT: SCC, found out that Jess Sixkiller was the victim of an apparent home invasion yesterday in Phoenix AZ. Some Old Timers out there would know of him from the 60's and 70's. He was a full blooded member of the Cherokee Nation, Aide to O.W. Wilson and the first Native American Detective on the Chicago Police Department. He left CPD to attend Harvard University where he obtained a Master's from the Kennedy School of Government. He was a well known leader in the Indian Cuvil Rights Movement. He and his Wife Tammy ended up in Chicago after they were moved by the Government off of a reservation as part of the Indian Relocation Act.

He was gunned down at age 78 as he tried to protect his Wife of 60 years. Phoenix PD is investigating. This Man was my Uncle, he was always very proud that he started his life on the Chicago Police Department. Just thought the Department should know.

So what do you do with a disloyal white shirt who will say anything and thinks throwing other under a bus is a good answer?

Demotions come to mind but i hear you are not allowed to do that with permission from the Mayors office. But having a commander forced to actually work 8 hours a day and actually type his own paper work might do the trick. See merit hack love their desk dollies because dollies do the paperwork!

Charter schools have pretty much emptied a lot CPS high schools. Especially, on the west side. There's one in 011 with barely more than 200 students.
At some point, someone with common sense has close those schools down, and/or combine a couple of them, while shutting down the other.
How can they fiscally justify keeping the lights in a school with 200 students? Especially when there's a HUGE school just northwest of it, with barely over 300 students. This is pissing away money, pure and simple.

This is exactly what I said in my posting yesterday, and I said it after talking to an attorney. The attorney had called me that day on another matter, and this Moron Commander's comments came up in the conversation. The Commander by his statement, has in essence acknowledged: 1. The Chicago Police Department Could have prevented the death. 2. The Chicago Police Department FAILED to prevent the death, and that failure was so obvious, as to warrant discipline of the officers involved. Since retiring from the Chicago Police Department I have been teaching Criminal Justice at a small community college, and we have touched upon the issue of Predictive Policing. Last semester we had a speaker from CPD who came down from headquarters to lecture our students. I immediately realized this guy was full of shit,since he had his Operators Beard, this is big among wannabe Navy SEALS, it is supposed to indicate they were "Inserted" somewhere other than up some bosses ass. He also had no firearm, another indication that he was not the "Real Police". In any event, this Speaker was touting Predictive Policing, which means by analyzing stats on past crime and criminals, police can predict where new crime will occur. The concept was used in Afghanistan, which is also disturbing since it means we are comparing our good Democrats, to a country we occupied by force. As an "Old Guy", this type of policing used to be called Knowing the Area and Aggressive Patrol, but now you need a computer to do it. However, make no mistake about it, this Commander may have inadvertently stepped into some Real Shit. Because he has basically stated that this homicide was preventable, but was not prevented because of his officers' inaction, which warranted their being disciplined. This stupid chunk of waste, political hack, promoted because of his race and connections, may end up costing the Sheeple of Chicago "Big Money". Patronage, and the Promotion of Ignorance in the Chicago Police Department has made Loevy and Loevy, Peoples Law Office, etc., multi-millionaires. Corruption has a price tag, and WE pay that price.

Court tosses Chicago inmate's $10M suit for escape

September 26, 2015

"CHICAGO – An inmate who escaped from a high-rise federal jail in Chicago has an unusual theory on who's to blame: He says the government was negligent in enabling the breakout, so he sued for $10 million for damages.

"The 7th U.S. Court of Appeals said in a Friday ruling that Jose Banks "gets credit for chutzpah." But a three-judge panel at the Chicago-based court tossed his 2014 lawsuit.

"No one has a personal right to be better guarded or more securely restrained, so as to be unable to commit a crime," the ruling said.

"In a 2012 jailbreak, Banks and a cellmate rappelled 17 stories down on a rope fashioned from bed sheets and dental floss, then hailed a cab. Banks, now 40, was caught within days and his cellmate within weeks.

"Banks' suit says the damages he suffered from the escape included the trauma of dangling on the makeshift rope in fear of his life.

"Authorities dropped the escape charges against him because he was going to prison for decades anyway on a bank robbery conviction.

"But Banks...says guards should have noticed the two were chiseling an escape hole in their cell and should have stopped them long before they fled.

"Banks says he has had to endure tighter restrictions than fellow inmates at his current prison because of the escape...

The suit also claims Banks has suffered "damage to his reputation," as well as "humiliation and embarrassment," and what Banks calls "injury" to his "spiritual constitution."

Heh!
Some "boss" must've posted this...

You want SCC to "be fair?"

Do the barking dogs have bosses up a tree
with the seat of their britches torn to shreds or what?

Awww... Clout-Babies are feeling a little concerned because their
ride on CPD Easy Street is getting bumpy so now you want to come
on the blog and plead for understanding and reasonable accommodation?

Life is tough all over, you Kool-Aid slurping juice babies.
It's about time you fuckers got the notice.

"Yassuh bossuh... Imma stick it in some blue shirt ass cuz dey didn't
prevent some asshole who likely needed shooting from getting shot."

Sad. Sorry. Pitiful.
Unmanly...

You motherfuckers have the malignant gift of hindsight and second guessing
Policemen for exercising whatever lawful and available options they have out here.

That's why Compstat is bullshit and an utter failure.

It demands the nigh near impossible to sustain itself as
it lurches toward a pre-determined outcome regardless
of the career and civil perils it exposes Policemen to.

Compstat pivots on the supposition that Policemen, when
pressured, stressed, driven into a corner and burned at both ends
until they capitulate and cease aligning themselves with that which
is actually lawful; to buying into the politics of crime stat management
and manipulation that is anathema to all who have sense, reason and the ability to
think critically and WITHIN the law as applied to a particular circumstance
at a particular point in time.

Now is not the time to endanger yourselves by engaging in creative law
enforcement to appease these bosses and prop up the failed model that is Compstat.

McCarthy is insane if he thinks you can get inside
the head of a mutt and influence him to not get his ass shot.

Bee-Ay-Dee/hard-head motherfuckers having fear if not outright
terror of The Police, a fully supported and equipped 15,000 man
Department and the CCSA office and the circuit courts being purged
and purified with hellish hot fire.

Anything less is idle jaw-jacking and lip service.

For the short bus/short attention/bullshit and distraction crowd.

Noted criminologists and former NYPD bosses John Eterno and
Eli Silverman helped to lay down the very foundation upon which
Compstat was built upon.

Those two men are ON RECORD as denouncing the crime stat
manipulation device Compstat has been turned into.

Especially by former NYPD police-gods trying to create policing
legacies out of crime stat manipulation.

It's a damning indictment when the co-founders come out against
their masterwork.

McCarthy is desperate and running out of time.
The lack of Compstat "buy in" here in Chicago is chafing
him badly.

He figures the "resistance" is coming from ground level
which is why he beats on the Patrol echelon the way he does.

He's pissed because he figured he would have steamrolled
you dumb ass, lazy ass, simple-minded Chicago Cops.

According to the Compstat model as promulgated by McCarthy
and his brain-trust, Policemen are disposable.

Fuck these fools.
Protect yourselves from THEM
by any means at your disposal.

Be within the LAW.
The LAW is the ONE refuge
Gerry McCarthy can't chase
Chicago Policemen from.

Except for the Commander in Chief who was chewing gum! Honest to Christ, chewing gum. Maybe it was nicotine gum but still, what the fuck. All the Joint Chiefs were up there and the fucking President has his jaw chewing away. Unbelievable.

Testing for promotion has its flaws, but it can weed out total idiots. Merit does not

9/26/2015 08:12:00 AM

I have to disagree with your post. Both processes are flawed. The test does not weed out the idiots. to name a few that stand out, lemmer, promoted all the way up via test, no people skills and terrible leader. Price, promoted all the way up via test, not as smart as people think, not a lick of common sense. Georgas, terrible leader, vindictive as can be, thinks he's gods gift to police work, promoted by test. James Jones, book smart, terrible leader, not a good communicator, no people skills whatsoever, promoted by test.

The merit side too, has many promoted way beyond their capabilities, too many. My point is, the promotional exam, it's subjective nature in grading, has no test portion for leadership and balls. The merit process could be very beneficial to department if applied correctly, however it doesn't reach enough people to give an accurate, objective assessment of its effectiveness. Until a test is devised that gives a full 360 assessment of ones abilities beyond the books, there will be no fair way to promote on this job. In my 25 years on, I've seen both good and bad from both sides of the promotional process. I base a supervisors ability on the way they make decisions, fairness in daily interactions and the delivery of the message. Not a hard process to follow. Most white shirts have forgotten where they have once come.

Everyone is focusing on Tdub's stupidity and missing the most insane thing of all that was said at Compstat. I think Chief Tracy is like Hitler in the last days in the bunker, moving troops that don't even exist around a sand table.

Old Jess Sixkiller was a legend when I got on in 1979. Heard nothing but great things about this warrior and great man. I always wished to had met him. May the Almighty hold this true American in his hand. Rest easy Jess.
Men like Jess and his heritage should be never forgotten in the CPD.

“come on Mike Lappe stand up at pension board tell the thieves enough! We have invested our money let us vote on it. No more inflated pension for these clowns!”

Are you out of your f’ing mind? Mike Lappe is part of the problem.

Mike Lappe stand up for our pension?? He doesn’t care about or understand anything about the Pension Fund. He cares about screwing police, keeping Dean Angelo out of disability review, and landing in some cushy political role when he is forced to retire all in return for his blind devotion to the City gods. Lappe loves the bosses and the politicians. These are the HIS people, not us.

You want someone to stand up for police and protect our pension, get rid of him and get someone else on the board.

Very entertaining fake bosses pass out the gold stars "there's gold in them there hills" how many brainless bosses do we have? But alas a perfect stepping stone to huge pension and another 6 figure job somewhere and of course a "double or triple dip pension" no wonder pensions are in such bad shape! Why have a no respect "commander" joke rank? Lieutenant is last civil service rank come on Mike Lappe stand up at pension board tell the thieves enough! We have invested our money let us vote on it. No more inflated pension for these clowns!

at compstat they handed commanders dozens of closed envelopes with (1) day suspensions per mccarthy for reading the report to the Black Friday murder/suicide at Nordstram.
"conduct unbecoming" rule 31 violations.

9/26/2015 10:34:00 AM


"Conduct Unbecoming?"
How so?

Why is McCarthy resorting to a broadly written and interpreted
disciplinary "catch-all" to punish Policemen for using a resource
available to them to know what is going on in this city?

Or is Garry pissed because he still can't find "the leak?"

Hey Gar! The source of your "leak" is the 5th floor suites
at 111 N. LaSalle St. You're welcome, you dunce...

Sealed envelopes with one day suspensions?
Slippery slope to "Hitler's Final Days In The Bunker" type shit.
Sealed envelopes with signed death warrants and what not.

No doubt McCarthy and Bob Tracy wish they could order exempts
into the districts to execute a few Blue Shirts as a message to
the rest for being rebellious and "resisting" the buy in to Compstat.

Don't laugh TOO loudly...
We can think of a double handful who would
GLADLY give a peed-on-peon a bullet to the
back of the head if it meant not getting yelled
at during the Gerry McCarthy Compstat Celebrity Roast.

We can't try the veal cuz we ain't on the guest list...
We also reject any club that would accept us as a member. ;^)

Hey! Just had a thought SCC!
Why not let the readers have at it and submit the
names of gold stars deemed most willing to give a Blue Shirt
a bullet to enhance their standing with McOut-Of-Ideas?

We nominate McOut-Of-Ideas, his ghoul Tracy and the dozen or
so home-grown nitwits quaking in their boots behind them.

Thus be it ever until those over-comped chimps can come up
with a coherent crime fighting strategy that doesn't pivot on
relentlessly beating on Patrol for the lack of impulse control
by the death worshippers we're charged with policing.

McOut-Of-Ideas and Tracy are awfully brave and manly
for demanding that street Coppers be "written up" for
"failing" to prevent born-to-die motherfuckers from setting
fire to each other's asses.

You won't see them saying shit to the death worshippers
lighting this city on fire even if they had heaping mouthfuls of it...

For cryin' out loud!
Didn't any of you gold star clowns ever watch Mutual of Omaha's

He doesn't think that he is God gift to police work he just knows what works, He is shot down a lot these days because Jim Roussell and Georgas don't get along, Georgas was Roussells boss when jody was in command, and if Roussell didn't like what Georgas said, he would run directly to Jody. Georgas put together the entire NATO detail, he worked with the FEDS for a years leading up to the NATO. He ran the 3rd floor command Center at Homan Square so effectively that other cities asked for his help. I can see that if you have personal issues with a boss, then negative posts will always appear. And no I'm not up Georgas' ass. I'm retired and can say anything I want about any boss on this job now ans like I did when I was on the job!!!

Hey 9/26 08;12 post, seems to me that after 25 years you are bitter , maybe because you have not studied hard enough to be promoted or maybe you just have never taken a test and want to be promoted on merit, you seem to be a person who has all the answers and likes to stir up the pot, standing around the desk talking shit about the SGTS. but not having the balls to voice your concerns. granted some SGTS.LTS. and CAPTS. think that they are Hitler when they get made but I was a SGT who looked out for the troops, being in specialized units I still looked out for coppers in the district when I had a mission there, Not all Bosses are the enemy and I wish you could get promoted so you would be able to look into the mirror and become a leader. I know you are probably a real go getter in a beat car who hates everybody !!!!!

There are 8 people on that board. 5 city (Kurt "I wantta be mayor", 3 appointees, and Lapdog) and 3 police. We are fucked until we can at least it get it to 4 and 4.

Lappe can't get others on the board to do anything. If we know he's a pea brain and don't respect him, don't you think the other trustee cops have his number as they watch him cozy up to Rahm and the gang meeting after meeting? Don't confuse crafty and self serving with intelligence. Lappe's pension brain is made of cotton candy.

Don't ever think a commander would not throw you and your family under a bus because you did not follow all the rule the department has.

Take the recent cases with the Detective all you hear is the weapon was not registered yet all civilian NO longer have to register a damn thing.
Don't qualify with that cute mini gun the city will say you were not authorized. Work a security job City will say you had no authorization to work security. Record a victim with out a signature in an interrogation room ?

Ever notice those memos that are never signed or Facsimile messages that originate from people not in the chain of command?

Testing for promotion has its flaws, but it can weed out total idiots. Merit does not

9/26/2015 08:12:00 AM

I have to disagree with your post. Both processes are flawed. The test does not weed out the idiots. to name a few that stand out, lemmer, promoted all the way up via test, no people skills and terrible leader. Price, promoted all the way up via test, not as smart as people think, not a lick of common sense. Georgas, terrible leader, vindictive as can be, thinks he's gods gift to police work, promoted by test. James Jones, book smart, terrible leader, not a good communicator, no people skills whatsoever, promoted by test.

The merit side too, has many promoted way beyond their capabilities, too many. My point is, the promotional exam, it's subjective nature in grading, has no test portion for leadership and balls. The merit process could be very beneficial to department if applied correctly, however it doesn't reach enough people to give an accurate, objective assessment of its effectiveness. Until a test is devised that gives a full 360 assessment of ones abilities beyond the books, there will be no fair way to promote on this job. In my 25 years on, I've seen both good and bad from both sides of the promotional process. I base a supervisors ability on the way they make decisions, fairness in daily interactions and the delivery of the message. Not a hard process to follow. Most white shirts have forgotten where they have once come.

You both however, left out an important aspect of the promotional process. And that is those who were practically given the test via subject matter expert or clout. So not all who made it by "score" achieved so legitimately. Just saying.

At least with tests people will have read the orders and Rules & Regulations. They have to make a presentation to oral review of some size but it will not be their own supervisors. It makes people work and sweat for the promotion and also keep up activity and out of trouble.

I have never met a double, triple or quad merit promoted (fill in the blank) on this job that wasn't a screw-up. The higher they got they worst they got.

9/27/2015 04:29:00 PM


Georgas has a master plan, and that plan involves making himself look good in the eyes of the mayor and the superintendent. I have never met someone as focused on getting himself promoted as he is...well...there once was this guy named Leo...but that is a story for another day.

Debra Kirby would be surprised to know that Georgas "put together the entire NATO detail," as there were many others involved in the process, and they all reported to her.

Also, over the years there have been numerous rumors of "secret study groups" and the promotional process. Here are the irrefutable facts:

Georgas, Kennedy, Caluris, and several others were in a study group for lieutenant when all of them were Maurer's "inside guys." At the time, Maurer was a Senior Subject Matter Expert (SSME), and as such he helped write the exam, along with the test developers. And before the exam was administered, Maurer, Hiram Grau, and Terry Hillard were able to review every line of that exam. And every member of that study group was promoted to lieutenant, with rank scores of #1 (Kennedy, Maurer's long-time administrative sergeant), #3, #4, and so on. ENOUGH SAID.

The only flaw in Steve's master plan is that he drags PO Kim K. as his "secretary" everywhere he goes. The problem lies in the fact that she can't keep her mouth shut about even the most confidential matters, and she has such an incredible sense of entitlement that she thinks that she is the deputy chief. Even other high-ranking members know that this is a fact. She's a full-duty PO who deserves to be in a district working midnights.

Agree 100%. I'm retired as well and while not a huge Georgas fan, he's really one of the sharpest guys up there. McCarthy, Tracy & Roussell don't like him but City Hall loves him. Too bad because if all these children could play nicely, it would be a much better department.
