Wanted: Bus Mechanics
Someone has to untangle all the dead careers that went under the bus at CompStat Thursday:
- 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. My officers failed to take any action. They were called there three times, coded out the job twice and the third time issued an ANOV". I wrote up the officers"
McCarthy: "you should have written up the supervisors too,"
Williams: "OK, I will do that later!"
McCarthy: "no you won't. You're not making me the asshole".
A little bit later on. . .
Williams: "these conflicts are originating in the Districts surrounding 002. (Implying not his fault but that of those surrounding District Commanders) This one here is right across the Dan Ryan, in007. "
McCarthy: "Did you communicate with those commanders, Larry did you know about this?"
After a pregnant pause! Watson "nope, Don't know what he is talking about!" (Exchange heavily paraphrased)
Word is that McCarthy was none-too-pleased at the meeting, but gleeful afterwards - he has the exempt staff doing his dirty work, turning on each other, and it only took four years for them to begin cannibalizing one another. Years of incompetence and politics has finally bent the Department beyond any hope of repair.
