Hey Deano?

Isn't it about time that the FOP update the standard disclaimer that is supposed to accompany To-Froms? Something along the lines of...
  • R/O has been made aware that all (A) Use of Force, (B) Tasering, (C) Shooting incidents of this nature are being forwarded to the (A) Cook County States Attorney, (B) the Illinois Attorney General, (C) the Department of Justice (D) Other, for the possible intention of a criminal prosecution. Upon advice of Counsel and to protect the Contractual, Administrative, Criminal and Constitutional Rights of the undersigned, all statements taken/ordered by _________________ should be considered as being made under duress and without the presence of Counsel and benefit of reviewing any (A) video, (B) statements, (C) reports, that have been generated out of his/her presence by person(s) whose priorities may not lie in the best interests of the Accused.
Especially in light of the sudden magical appearance of a 30-day "administrative" job action that no one, not even the FOP, has ever heard of or been consulted on.

Like I said along time ago... Good luck with getting 20 guys... The city has started a plan to fast track the firing process. Get in trouble today, get disciplined by mid week. No more 1990s when discipline was getting transferred or taking a day

Call the Police. Not being vicious....this is getting damn serious...Justice for all includes the Police...Now, rights are being taken, stolen from Police. Time for a Sit-In. Flu. Our security is going down the drain. Where is respect for authority? If that goes by the way-side..we are cooked.

OT - But still should be on Dr. Disability Deano's list of current gripes. The Rising Star New Years Eve free event is now attempting to charge $119.00 @ ticket according to DNA Info. That fee will admit you to the Corona Beach Party featuring food and a prime viewing area.
For $150,00 you can enter the "Broadcast Boulevard" for even more amenities.
The event will also be broadcast nationally on NBC5. Folks from coast to coast can watch our Apple pickers in action. Or District Commanders acting as punching bags for our frustrated yutes. So many things for Rahmulus to be proud of while sipping his cuba libre or mojito. Maybe after the fest they can replay his famous city council speech complete with tears. How bout a live interview with Jason "Piñata" Ervin about his low cal biscuits&gravy or his candidate for Supt. Barb West with her embroidered pillow cases?

As late as Dec 3, the event was publicized as a freebie. Will Carol Marin have a full investigation of this ripoff? Of course not since they are one of the sponsors. Hey Carol, what other media whores will be strutting down Broadcast Boulevard with you?? Get your miniskirt, boots, and fishnets for that wholesome ho look! Since you've announced your retirement - here's a new occupation which you are eminently qualified for.

Dean is trying real hard to either get his kid some merit
Chevrons or land himself a cushy retirement gig
for refusing to go H.A.M on Rahm.

Dean and Rahm are two little pimps cut from the same cloth

Hey Deano!
Fence-sitting makes for a sore ass.
Especially if Rahm has you by both ankles.

Every time I read about them, it seems like they are behind or not responding to anything or just sitting there when they should be actively responding to wrong calls, bad judgements by the media (or others), etc.

No leadership there. (geez- that is such a Captain Obvious observation, sorry)

Is Deano ever going to stand up for us? We don't hear from anyone working at Fop right now. What about Mcdonough? He ran for president and has all that experience working in the hotel unit downtown. Come on Tom show us what kind of leadership skills you have!

I'm going to use this if I need it. It makes sense. Any statement under duress could be argued at a later more sober time. It doesn't need to be endorsed by the FOP. They are asleep at the switch as far as I'm concerned.
Remember, they (the bosses) cant tell you what to write in a report. Tell them, should they reject your report, that you can only add another supplemental report to your first report. Any decent boss will get the message.

Oh, the times, they are a changing.

SCC isn't this something that has to be negotiated contractually.Seems like changing the game on discipline for something that can happen to any copper is something that needs to be negotiated for during contract talks.

Go ahead be the first to become a fair share member.

Teamsters are great until they farm out the legal defense to the lowest bidder. Get a kid just out of law school and he learns on the job representing you.

Feds get 48-72 hours, state police get 48 hours why so fast to hurt CPD coppers? Rush to judgement as always, rahm is flying home from communist cuba early, guess his girl that took over ipra has some information for him! the big question will they throw another "non-fetal" copper to the media hoardes and the jungle savages to destroy? No wonder police test is constantly extended, no one with any brain matter wants this job,no matter the pay! Who would want a job that has "gold star club" bosses with zero backbone, having to constantly worry about getting sued and going to prison?

Just opened a letter that is from Chicago police department saying that all complaints are being released to the Chicago tribune from 2011-2015 the lawyers are salivating, be featl unless your completely insane, or stupid!

involved in a shooting?? you will be placed on desk duty and you WILL see a department shrink for one month or longer until you have been deemed o.k. to return to the street....this has been going on for over a year already, I know two officers who already went through the program after being involved in a deadly shooting, bad guy had a gun, gun recovered, but officers still ordered to undergo therapy sessions before being returned to street.

O.T. On the subject of audio in the cars. Why hasn't the FOP talked about the fact that these stupid mics are doomed to failure. According the the manufacturer they are designed for a max battery life of 16-18hrs and then require at least 3hrs to recharge. Cars run 24/7. How are the batteries suppose to sit for 3hrs everyday to charge? Sounds like a lowest bidder issue.

Still getting a check, you're warm, safe and dry and it isn't bad time against the pension. Might even be a good chance to decompress. Look at the bright side -- no receipts necessary for contact with the public and better meal options.

Find a way to use it to your advantage, instead of flailing at it.

Some of these "experts" from the "community" also want to wipe out some of the protection our contract offers like the 24 hour period before being subjected to interviews etc.
Has anyone seen Dean lately? Is he alive? Perhaps he's in Cuba vacationing with Rahm and Rauner.
WTF Dean? How about some press releases, statements etc. to set some of these "experts" straight..... your members are being slandered, second and triple guessed, and you're staying silent?
All the misleading and flat out wrong and inaccurate info being bantered about and you say what? Your silence is deafening.

That is a great idea.

But the warnings would probably need to be a page long.
just think an officer would need to see every in car camera video of the incident,every radio call,every To-From of everyone on scene,every video from private security cameras and all the video taped by patrol officers.

How many hours is the City willing to Pony up on each police shooting Hit or miss?

Taser training is an annual training will the City pay for an officer to be down for 1 day x 10500 person? And the City would have to purchase a whole lot of tasers for those who were hired pretaser!

TASER® X2 Defender

Now what do you think the City pays??? FOIA MEDIA trolls it is more than retail.

so we got 1 days pay and of course 1600$ in equipment for everyone exempts,desk dollies and specialize units . RAHM i am all ready for that free taser and a day of strenuous training. Thanks Deano for covering are backs

All of the presidents of FOP are bought and paid for by the City?

Dougherty is working as a beat cop in 22, Shields is working as a beat copper in 18, and Donahue is working as a security guard.

I love the "slow down" comments.... yea no shit! But have you realized the mcdonald shooting, and the one's over the weekend occurred because people RESPONDED TO JOBS... they were not the result of west-side warriors chasing around one rock arrests... I think it is safe to say 99.99% of the department has "slowed down" in light of recent events. If you are going to leave comments, try making it relevant to the topic, not the same bitter response that you posted before any of this shit started.

I'm retired, and this will be the first year I do not pay dues to the FOP. They support political candidates I don't trust, and are always in a Response mode. We need Proactive Membership at this time. I feel membership is a waste. I'll donate to the NRA instead.

All active members should keep their membership obviously...
