"Diversity"

  • In his pitch Monday to recruit a diverse pool of applicants for an upcoming police entrance exam — the first since 2013 — Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy’s approach was equal parts practical and idealogical.

    “At the end of the day, it’s a pretty good-paying job with great benefits,” McCarthy said at a news conference held at police headquarters.

    “Officers will start with a salary of $47,000, and after 18 months that will go to $72,000, and there’s not a lot of places where you can get that in this environment right now, in this economy,” he said, adding that health care for the whole family was included.
Um, this is the greatest economy since WWII. Just ask Sparklefarts and all the people lined up nose-to-ass coming out of the White House, along with the media. We won't tolerate that sort of talk around here.
  • And, for the idealists: “It’s probably the most noble thing a person can do with their life,” McCarthy said.

    The job offers “the best and the worst of humanity in the same day, frankly,” McCarthy said, noting that the pendulum swings from “I can’t believe that just happened” — when encountering the best of humanity — to “God almighty, I can’t believe what I just saw.”
And that's just what you hear walking out of the Thursday morning CompStat meeting. The lies, data manipulation and number-spinning is enough to make you cry - or write award winning articles for Chicago Magazine.

In the meantime, in Reality World, we find articles like this forwarded to our e-mail:
  • Pretty soon, police departments nationwide will have to lower their hiring standards, increase salaries and benefits, and put a lot more money into marketing for new hires, because the men and women who would usually be candidates for law enforcement careers will choose another path.

    Becoming a police officer used to be a family tradition. It's not just an Irish thing, as is often depicted in movies and on television. I cannot count how many father/son and even mother/daughter, police families you can find out there in various departments, of all different colors and backgrounds. It's an honorable profession serving the community, and children who are raised in cop households often grow up with the same sense of civic responsibility as their parents. I even know of one family in the Washington, DC, area who has family (cousins, brothers, etc.) in almost every police department in and around the city. Meet one "Officer Wigglesworth" and I guarantee you, he's related to all of the others.

    But the times, they are a'changin. And not for the better. Because the overall attitude toward law enforcement has shifted and changed. The profession that was so revered after 9/11 has instead become itself the target of hate. A lot of people have tried to make the community's problems with law enforcement a race issue. But the cop killers are indiscriminate as to whom they murder. Black, white, Hispanic, Asian - it's all about the color of the uniform, so to speak, not the color of the officer's skin.
And that isn't from a usual gloom-and-doom type website - that's the ultra-liberal Huffington Post writing there, and if they're seeing this, well then the past 10 years we've been preaching it put us somewhere above Nostradamus.

The left is out to destroy big city law enforcement in this county. It's part of their agenda to take over the nation. Law enforcement is still popular and not hated in the small cities and towns, the rural parts of this country; however, these areas are seldom ruled by a democrat political machine.

You won't get much accomplished. Its a toxic environment all around. Nobody in my family or extended family will be encouraged to be the police. Don't take the test. Be a firefighter(suburbs are hiring), bounty hunter, dog walker, landscaping but don't become a cop. You're kicking yourself in the teeth if you do.

There are still a lot of people (perhaps under-represented in opinion polls) who understand the need for policing and reject the phony media-fueled character assassination of law enforcement that attracts so much attention these days.

Facts are facts and bullshit is bullshit.

1) The body of Michael Brown had GBR (gun barrel residue) on his hand.

2) The first shot was fired from inside Officer Wilson's vehicle.

3) Deal with it.

It's tough for the silent majority to find effective channels to express our opinion.. BUT IT'S NOT IMPOSSIBLE. The truth is the truth and you just have to keep on keepin' on.

In addition, you have a minority candidate pool that is increasing their numbers in higher education and entering the middle class. What once was the be all end all job coming out of high school no longer carries that appeal that it once did in the 60's, 70's and 80's.

It's still a great job, the greatest there is in my opinion. This elevated level of police hate will pass just like everything else. As a matter of fact, when you leave ultra liberal Illinois and travel to other areas of the country- I took a 10 day road trip through the south last month- you find that the great majority of Americans still do appreciate and respect law enforcement. The media is so sensationalist, and so very left leaning in the mainstream that blasting stories of police hate is done every hour on the hour. The fact is however that most people still stand behind us. Most of the people who do just don't stand on their soapbox and scream for attention, and that's why we don't hear as much about them.
I am very proud to be a cop, particularly a Chicago Police Officer. Fuck the haters and the cynics.

As usual, the Huffpost gets it wrong even when it tries to get it right. Can't speak about other departments, but one of the BIG problems with this department is the fact that it IS such a "family tradition". And, as such: hiring, promotion, and assignments are doled out not on an equal footing, but on someone's parentage and relations. When the politicians do it, we scream to high heaven. Yet, it's OK for our police department, because that's the way it's always been done. Not to mention the fact that when someone's kid steps on his dick, no problem. It's taken care of. When some poor unconnected bastard does the same, it's good luck kid, take one for the team. At least Huffpost got the part about lowering hiring standards correct. That's a guarantee, sad to say.

So we "fire them" by stopping all taxpayers assistance, like link,free health care, housing, free phones everything! Let's take it a step farther make it known that if anyone is convicted of mayhem at that address all benefits stop. This would help to restore civility to that segment of the population.

:"...What reporter John Byrne failed to tell ya is that Rahm hired a communications management firm founded by his longtime friend and former White House colleague, David Axelrod, to conduct a $100,000 minority outreach campaign to recruit more minority cop applicants. 

The contract was awarded to ASGK Public Strategies LLC, the firm Axelrod founded in 2002. Axelrod is Emanuel’s friend of 30 years. The two men worked together in the White House when Emanuel was serving as President Barack Obama’s first chief of staff and Axelrod was a senior adviser to the president..."

Key word is "was" good paying job with good benefits. Most of us took the job because of it. Now when the time comes to retire you find out that you might not have those benefits and/or have them significantly reduced. You put in 30 years of your life in this job for someone to tell you...sorry buddy we didn't put our portion in into your pension. Diversity? Minority? ..ok lower the standards even lower. I say it's a good thing. Police department should consist of only black and Hispanic population so when they kill someone while doing their job you can't blame the white man anymore.

Off topic....I received an e-mail the other day with a link to the invisible institute. They are the group that compiled the stats with who had the most CR numbers. On this site it named everyone on the list , but it gave dates , times , locations of CR numbers. It also gave how many CR numbers an individual had and who the accused officer was working with and how many CR's that officer had. It names the investigator of the CR's and how many complaints the investigator has. It named the complainants and it was a very detailed account of the complaint. The site was up and running earlier yesterday , but it has since been taken down. I was wondering if anyone knows about this or why it was taken off the internet.

This crap keeps going around and around. I was hired in 1982 under strict quotas. 1/3 male white(which included Asians), 1/3 male minorities, 1/3 female. Written test was easy, no POWER or physical strength/agility test. Most PPOs were OK but we still had some who required extra academic or physical help in order to meet standards. If they couldn't meet the standards, the standards were ignored. I don't recall anyone being flunked out.

Mike Royko wrote a terrific column once about police hiring and the difficulty of recruiting qualified blacks. About 25 years ago the Tribune published a study which found that 25% of black applicants were failing the whiz quiz.

Same problems, different century. Same fixes applied, same failure assured. Liberals are unable to learn from experience.

Yep, you're right, Alder-creature Beale. Everyone knows that it's not the Black's fault that they become CONVICTED FELONS by the time they're sixteen. How did the not-so Rev Jesse Jackass put it back in the '90s when pushing for Felons to able to Vote? Oh yeah, it went something like this: "Becoming a FELON is a 'Rite Of Passage' for young Black males growing up".

Some cabal of evil white people, probably 'right-wing extremists', must use Mind Control to make young Blacks become criminals and commit felonies so white folk get all the good jobs, become police, and 'Keep The Black Man Down'.

As to Blacks not passing the psychological exams. For one tell your peeps not to drop out of school in the 6th Grade and their IQ just might go above 70! Secondly, raising your kids to Hate the Police, to Hate society, to Hate White people, that nothing is their fault because of slavery and they're 'owed', is not exactly a healthy environment to shape young minds.

In fact it'll make them down right antisocial and turn them into PSYCHOPATHS!! Not exactly 'Police Material', you moron.

Trust me when I tell you that if your kid/family etc.. shows ANY sings of leaning towards the RIGHT in his/her social media accounts and/or posts they will be DQ'd from the process. Any pro-police, pro-blue lives matter any anti-left posts or comments at all is a disqualification. The split second they get their letter to take the Power Test they better deactivate social media and stay off the internet. Don't think it's true? Don't think KenTek and assigned investigators aren't now told to study said potential candidates' social media accounts and are coached what to look for and what the Department doesn't want to take a chance on offering employment to? Think again. So if your son or daughter got DQ'd from the 2013 list and you just can't seem to pinpoint just why exactly? Scroll through their social media and count how many Right leaning posts, statuses and comments they've made recently. New potential recruits showing ANY hints of having a Right or Conservative opinion or ideology will be DQ'd. Tell your son or daughters right NOW to fine tooth comb their social media and remove all the anti-left memes, news articles or Blue Lives Matters pics. All of it. Every last Like or comment. More than likely it's too late if they're on the 2013 list and their lottery number is > 3000. This just started and will now be standard practice. In case you're wondering: Showing a propensity of Left ideologies and anti-Right rhetoric won't necessarily be an automatic DQ just the latter that I just explained.

Like the suntimes article page 17 where mcrugoofy states "When Ive spoken to a lot of our African-American officers, they tell stories about losing a lot of friends when they became police officers... That has to be overcome." Wow boss really! Look at paper they even pull it from paragraph and re highlight it near the bottom bold big print! bet the writer was thinking "this guy is nuts have to show how foolish this statement is!"

Lost a lot of friends hmm boss? I was hired lost no "friends" actually gained more! This begs the question what kind of people do you hang around with? Criminals? felons? Come on this statement is so stupid, a lot of officers boss? Pandering to who? Please leave your now setting up more of a divide!!

While the article hits some very good and accurate points....I think it's important to at least acknowledge that we "LE" have had a hand in our perception, Especially in non-white neighborhoods. How do I know this? I see it everyday. I hear the chatter in the hallways and the locker room. Those of you who show little to no respect for people then turn around and complain about not getting respect should think about how you deal with people. Before anyone goes on that they want us to be the nice Police BS, I say this, is it not possible to be professional and control your scene/job/stop? I think about a teacher I had in High School. He carried himself in a way that you knew not to even try him. BUT if you step off line, he would put you in your place, WITHOUT being a jag bag. No one ever talked bad about him because he was respectful while being very tough and demanding.

And when you run into the a-hole that wants to MF you and call you all sorts of names, don't fall for the trap. Just ignore it. As I'm sure you all know, it will ONLY be your reaction, if it is bad, that makes it on the Internet, news, Facebook etc.

I always hear the phrase about working smart. Well it's true. Work smart and I think we will be ok. Some people will always hate us no matter what, can't change that at all. But we can stop giving people ammunition.

Carry on......

I have four generations of ancestors in cemeteries around this city. They helped to build this city, fought in the World Wars and Korea. They laid brick, fitted pipes, built homes, poured concrete. They were and are barbers, merchants, teachers, health care workers and lawyers. Myself and my father were police officers and proud of it.

None were ever in trouble with the law.

Well what no on knows is the moral on job is low, crime is rampant, and most of these thugs are not even getting arrested in the first place for the dozen crimes they have committed and the dope they sell, we have no resources to catch and arrest them to begin with, and God forbid anyone actually want to prosecute them. Remember drugs are becoming the new normal and aren't even being prosecuted anymore. Remember that our commander in chief in charge is getting rid of the Convicted Felon Box on job applications because felons can't get jobs…..he says, so lets bend the rules and give them breaks in life. My Lord, what has this world come to where the bad are rewarded and the good are pooped on.

I just talked to a friend of mine. His brother was a cop in Marquette Park. He recently quit and has just been hired by the Fire Department. He's Puerto Rican (and I think perhaps Mexican).

When I talked to him at a party at his house last summer, he said, "What do they expect us to do? They assign us to black neighborhoods because that's where most of the crime is, and then we're not supposed to arrest black people. When we do arrest them, we're accused of racial profiling, but if we don't, they say we're not doing our job and don't care about black people."

The cost of living is far more in the burbs. City living is the cheapest by far. What kills people who care about their kids is the cost of school tuition if you cannot send your kids to a public school that is decent. But, if you ask Karen Lewis, all is well with CPS and the need for more and more charter schools is just wrong and anti American and anti democratic. When the city built a new public high school in Mt. Greenwood the new principle put a quota on the number of local resident's children that could attend. The rest were bused in.

If this passes, we will soon be working with the 20% of the city that we have been working to lock up. This has been part of their plan for a long time and it will be one of the causes of our decline to Detroit status. Now that pot is legal, everyone with the pot arrests will ask to have them expunged from their records. Since low level heroin and crack possession will be considered a non-violent misdemeanor, guess what? All they have to do is get the one line on the FOID and firearms purchase forms regarding the illegal drugs removed and they are clear to ride shotgun in your squad.

When you enter a court of law, you aren't allowed to film or talk back to a judge, lest you face the consequences of contempt of court. Why are the standards of interaction and expectations so different when addressing a police officer, the first line of law enforcement on the streets?

When did it become "acceptable" in some of these communities to dis-respect police, film and/or ignore their legitimate commands?

No wonder some noble people are bypassing this profession now. The same people who seem to be baiting the police would never tolerate working in a hostile job environment themselves.

In my opinion, you should be afforded the same decorum and courtesy as a judge on the bench, you are representatives of the law. You should not have to stand down when some misfit insults, dis-respects or ignores you.

What a piece of shit you must be. I don't do anything meaningful or contribute a single thing to society? Don't project what you do in a day on to me. Everyday, I either wreck a shitbags day or help out a decent person. Some days, I do both. And if you think the $76 an hour doesn't matter, you will really love it when your kids land that job of waiting tables after you finish paying for them to go to college. It turns out that without a masters degree, it's pretty tough out there. And by the way, there is nothing in this world that makes you appreciate your life like spending a day in the ghetto.

I always thought Diversity was between Fullerton and Belmont!

No, I believe Diversity was an old, old wooden ship used during the civil war era.

Yeah, you wreck a shitbag's day. You mean you give him a free lunch and a nap in the lock up. Maybe he even spends some time in County or prison but he eventually gets let out and continues to be a shit bag. In the interim, there's a hundred more shit bags to take his place. So again, you produce nothing and you accomplish nothing. I don't expect you to understand that concept though with your limited intelligence and education. You keep enjoying your time in the ghetto and telling yourself that what you do matters. In 50 years nobody will remember you or a single arrest you made but your kids will remember that daddy wasn't there because he was busy working VRI in the ghetto. Policing is a non productive, thankless job. It's not our fault because the system is designed to fail by the powers that be. If you wish this profession on your children instead of them going to college and getting a productive meaningful job, then you're the piece of shit. By the way, the person waiting tables that you so look down upon actually provides a valid service and accomplishes more than any of us on an average day.

No, they just want a paycheck because they're either A) Uneducated or unskilled B) Looking for something better in the meantime

I know what you mean brother.

What a sewage pit.. I'm only getting paid $76.43 @ hour at that damn VRI.

I should have tried to get a good management job at Caterpillar.

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

It doesn't matter what you get paid moron. This job is still a sewage pit and you don't produce a thing or contribute anything meaningful to society . . .

---------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------------

Hum.. I contribute to my mortgage in Norwood Park and PAID OFF the house.

I contributed to my deferred comp thanks to VRI an have over $600,000 in it.

And most important, all 4 of my kids have college degrees because I contributed to their college funds.

SO.. you go fuck yourself MORON.

In the early 90's my boss and I both took the entrance exam. We both were through the process roughly three months apart. I got on he didn't. His response to me was "you only got on because you fill two categories" your a woman and a minority. My response was, I don't give a f**k, I'm going to be making more money than you. Over 20 years later I'm making over 92,000 base add VRI and overtime, I have a six figure income by myself and I'm still making more than you Jim P. Oh and guess what I don't give a f**k. So kids if your listening jump on that diversity it's a beautiful beautiful thing.

I understand that you are just taking advantage of what was available, but do you ever feel anything for the person who didn't make it (Jim P.) because you took their spot?

I've always thought this but could never find the right words for it. Soon we will have bottom-feeders "policing" the very neighborhoods in which we all live. We are doomed.

That is what Obama and the Democommunists want and McNumbnuts is helping them achieve it. This is why they are releasing 6,000 "non-violent drug offenders" and will erase their criminal histories. Yet they publish our CR histories.

A 25k raise after 18 months? Seems a bit high to me.

11/03/2015 07:53:00 PM

Open up your FOP book and look at the pay scale. That doesn't seem to hard to do.

11/04/2015 05:03:00 PM

I'll save you the trouble; it's true. 18mo of probationary status, then an insane pay raise. Truth.

Why all this "moron" shit...

That's the one thing I hate about the anonymity of the blog.

Your guys never learned to discuss, argue, debate and bullshit in a manly manor in some of the great cops bars that we used to have around here. Most of you are too young to have know them.

Speaking about, bullshit, and manly ... I heard that the former infamous Inspector later Captain John Manley was either arrested or cited for impersonating a Federal Agent this week, I swear I thought he was dead.

There was a story in the Tribune online but I could not get it to load properly.

=======================

It is likely true that very little of what individual cops do matters. That is true of virtually all jobs. One person rarely matters all that much in the grand scheme of things.

You did all of that on a few years of Judas VRI?

While doing it you completely ignored the overall harm you did our pension. Back up officers that working police officers needed or may need in the future were never hired because of you.

Very self involved and short sighted, not to mention foul mouthed and ill mannered. I am sure those kids are proud.

I'm glad SCC mentioned the Bluffington, oops, er- Huffington Post. A rag that prints ultra-leftist drivel and allows for nobody's comments or opinions. Some really warped minds there.

&&&&&&

They lowered the pay for the first 6 months the recruits are in the academy substantially. That's why their is such a big gap. The starting pay used to be much higher. All of the step raises after that as small.

Wake up buddy. Learn Math 101.

If the city hired 1000 to 2000 officers tomorrow and they paid into the pension fund it would only make the slightest bit of difference.

The greatest loss to the pension fund is because over the last 25 years the city should have contributed a great deal more as they (Daley and Co.) were warned.

Take a class in economics.
