See?

Yesterday, we mentioned that all of Rahm's appointments to exempt positions were merely political moves to assuage certain voting blocs, and that anyone with time, an FOIA request and the ability to read might find some interesting backstories.

Frank Main went and found another:
  • A newly promoted Chicago Police commander is accused in a lawsuit of helping to frame a man on federal drug charges more than 16 years ago, court records show.

    Noel Sanchez, who was named commander of the South Chicago District earlier this week, was working with his partner Glenn Lewellen in 1999 when they arrested Refugio Ruiz.
Lewellen is currently in the midst of an 18-year sentence, so he was unavailable for comment. But Rahm needed a guy to fill a certain need, so there you are. We certainly hope people don't think this is the only shady one. This is just one of the easy ones.

Give it some more kicks Frank - you might bring down the whole rotten structure.

Sanchez worked in 005. He's a good guy. Quit knocking him. He actually did real police work. As far as the lawsuit, any working copper probably had to give a deposition or two in a career. Sure, Llewellyn was a piece of shit, but he's in jail, not Sanchez.

Your barking up the wrong tree on this on. Noel Sanchez did real police work back in the day.

Noel, by the way, thanks for getting me that Gatorade back on September 26, 1990 at the Waterfront Lounge shooting. I was scared to death that night.

I'm retired, good luck to you and anybody else still around.

Seems like a double standard. We've all been there when the false allegation has been made against you just for doing your job. Not saying all allegations are bullshit but most are. Just cause it dirties up these bosses doesn't mean we should not give them the same benefit we would want if it one of us in the crosshairs. Just saying.

Noel and Geln were on a team at that time. So is every cop on that team bad or just Noel because he worked with Glen that day? There were a lot of good police on that team. This lawsuit is bs. They filed it because Glen is in prison. So SCC if you were on a team and it turns out someone on that team is dirty, are you dirty? Its a lawsuit. Noel is not charged with anything. Look at Evans, he beat that gun in the mouth crap. The point I'm trying to make is that lots of cops get sued and some get charges filed against them. It doesn't mean they will get a conviction AND it doesn't mean there dirty.

004 has some quality Lieutenants working there that made rank by test score on a legit Lt test, one even has a law degree. I bet if he asked Deputy Chief Scott Ruiz the former commander there he would have told the mayor that any of these would have made a quality commander. One former Lt there is now a police chief out east who happens to have a doctorate degree. Only problem is they are the wrong flavor Vanilla.

Part of the problem here is that 99% of the command staff are merit hacks that can't make rank based on test scores which are designed to measure how much you know about the position you are testing for. This puts unqualified people into positions that directly affect the leadership, decision making, and morale of this department. Just who are these people being promoted? Who are the people backing them? What have they done that makes them more qualified than the ones that outscored them on tests? Did they pay someone for these spots, or provide some service? The Department of Justice should be looking into this during their investigation. I believe they will definitely find something.

It's not really fair to assign guilt solely by association or by being on scene when another officer commits a criminal act. If there was criminal conduct the Feds would have charged Sanchez. If the Feds thought there was misconduct but chose not to charge for whatever reason, they would have turned over their evidence to the Cpd who would have punished him.

HEY, JESSE! HEY, BLM! WHAT DID YOU SAY ABOUT "SHOOTING PEOPLE IN THE BACK?"

Boy, 7, shot in back sitting in car: 'This is why I don't let my kids out at night'

"A 7-year-old boy was shot in the back as he sat in a car with his mother on the West Side, one of 12 people hit by gunfire Wednesday through early Thursday in Chicago, according to police.

"The boy was sitting in the back seat in the 1000 block of North Leamington Avenue in the Austin neighborhood around 9:55 p.m. when someone opened fire, according to Officer Hector Alfaro, a police spokesman.

"The boy was hit in the upper right side of his back, and his mother drove him to West Suburban Medical Center in Oak Park, about a mile and a half away, Alfaro said. He was listed in serious condition and was transferred to Lurie Children’s Hospital in Chicago.

"At the scene, police officers cordoned off a section of Leamington, where they had found a handful of shell casings. The street is mostly lined with two-story homes.

"A man in a black jacket walked up with his dog and stared at the police officers. “It’s too close to Christmas for this,” he said, declining to give his name, saying he feared retaliation.

"The man said he heard about five or six gunshots while watching TV with his wife and their four children in their home.

“We were all sitting there at the kitchen table. We all heard the shots, and then we just looked at each other like, this is exactly why I don’t let my kids out at night,” he said."

Fop should publicly talk about what's going on. Tell active patrol to stop being proactive. The city, Feds, blacktivists, etc... are trying to take money away frim you and your family. They are trying to put you in jail. They don't like you. They wouldn't not think twice if you were dead or get killed by one of their pets. Noes is not the time to sit there and take it, like usual. Like Rahm says " don't let a crisis go to waste." Use it to benefit the police and good citizens of Chicago. There are a lot of retirees. Start a petition to limit the number of alderman to 10. There are good people in this city who still support us. We need them to show the city and mayor they support us. That pro police March should've never been canceled. We need the good people of the south and west sides to come out in support of the police. There is no leader or outlet for them. It needs to be organized. There are a lot more good people who support the police then the agenda driven, privately funded anti police people. Start being louder than they are.

Just so some of the out of state readers understand this. The Chicago Police Department has some of the best officers in the world. Sadly, due to political interference and racial quotas most of them stay where they are, patrol officers.
Many go on to outstand careers in other agencies, start businesses and are great at what they do. In the past, some were offered rank for money or "favors".
All the politicians have done is bow to the drug lords and reverends and destroy the police department.

Obama meets Bloomberg as he prepares order on guns

Updated 10:50 AM ET, Thu December 17, 2015

"(CNN)As his administration prepares an executive order tightening access to guns, President Barack Obama met Wednesday with former New York City Mayor Michael Bloomberg, a proponent of new gun laws who has become the chief enemy of the National Rifle Association.

"Obama has met with a series of gun control advocates in recent weeks as his aides complete work on a potential order expected to expand background checks on gun sales by closing the so-called "gun show loophole."

"A timeline on the order -- which has been tangled in legal and administrative questions -- is still unknown. The President met with former U.S. Rep. Gabby Giffords, who was gravely wounded during a 2011 shooting in Tucson, Arizona, on December 4 to discuss gun control.

"But even as he works to tighten access to firearms, a new survey shows dwindling support for an outright ban on assault weapons, which both Obama and Bloomberg have advocated as a means to prevent gun deaths.

"Despite Obama's efforts, and Bloomberg's millions, used to advance new restrictions on accessing guns, a new survey Thursday showed support for a ban on assault weapons sliding.

"The Washington Post/ABC News survey showed 45% of respondents backing a ban on assault weapons like the AR-15, a military-style rifle used in a number of mass shootings, including in Aurora, Colorado, Newtown, and San Bernardino.

"That's down from 2013, when more than 50% of Americans backed a ban on assault weapons. And it's a sharp decline in support from decades ago, when a vast majority of Americans -- as high as 80% -- supported such a law.

"For the first time, the poll showed a majority of Americans, 53%, opposing an assault weapons ban. And a plurality, 47%, now say that allowing more people to carry guns legally is a more effective way to combat terrorism than enacting stricter gun control laws."

If the feds find out who shipped all those guns to Mexico and lost track of them, they'll prosecute them.

This is the reason we'll never be a united department - some a'hole of a reporter puts out bait and coppers bite mouth wide open. How about we stick with our own and save the chastising for the mayor, his political lapdogs (who were squeezing him last night at that private dinner party) and the media. We are our own worst enemy. Combined we hold over 50k plus votes city wide but are too divided to even pick a lunch spot. They've won and YOU don't even know it!

It makes no difference that Sanchez is a good guy. He was a merit Sergeant and a merit Lieutenant. That sucks. One bite at the freaking apple is more than enough for one person.

I heard a quick news story on WBBM but did not quite get all of the details. There was a report of black Chicago police officers coming together as a kinda political force that called for there to be no promotions untill after the feds study was done and that there needed to be more police accountability in black districts and maybe even constituant negotiations? Driving was tight and couldn't pay full attention but what I wrote was the jist of what these black po's want.

Anyone have any better information?

If what I think I heard was remotely accurate, are we now the Thin Black and Blue Line?

i'm certain that Noel had no idea what was going on.

yeah, right.

if that's how sharp Sanchez is, maybe he shouldn't be running the police department.

phil cline ??

escalante

Somehow taking the word of a drug dealer in a lawsuit is now enough to ruin a police officer?

Fact, if the feds believed Sanchez did something wrong, they would have come after him.
+++++

Sure, and if the feds find something on Lois Lerner investigating conservative groups, they'll indict her.
If the feds find out who shipped all those guns to Mexico and lost track of them, they'll prosecute them.
If a single Top Secret e-mail appears on Hillary's server, she'll be in jail.
When they figure out who covered up the Koschman killing, they'll all be prosecuted to the fullest extent of the law.
You're kind of stupid aren't you?

I usually dislike all the name calling on this blog, but you have to be the most obtuse a-hole yet.
Yeah, that's right...federal justice dept democ-rats are going to investigate other federal agencies democ-rats.

004 has some quality Lieutenants working there that made rank by test score on a legit Lt test, one even has a law degree. I bet if he asked Deputy Chief Scott Ruiz the former commander there he would have told the mayor that any of these would have made a quality commander. One former Lt there is now a police chief out east who happens to have a doctorate degree. Only problem is they are the wrong flavor Vanilla.

I agree. 004 has a few quality Lt's. But don't judge based iall on a Degree. Some of those are just given out by Jerry Lewis College or worse yet - Calumet College. Show up. Pull a paper off Internet - sign your name. Instant A. Biggest scam going - for the "professors" at that place.

Noel has taken a couple of bites from the meritcloutorious tree (and I agree with another poster who said it here,
one bite should be all one should be allowed), but I must say, Noel worked in OCD, he is a respectable officer,
and I would find it very difficult to believe that he would be on the same level as his old partner Lewellyn.
And yes, to all of you naysayers, one can be a clean copper and wind up working with a complete douchebag of
a partner who hides that part of his personality from you very well. It has happened before, and it will happen
again. I'm sure everyone here has known someone on this job who had a very dirty secret that was found out,
either by the Feds, IAD or the State's Attorney's Office.

Is it possible that anyone but Morry wrote this? Does anyone else like home enough to write this. Speaking as a "vanilla" without clout. Does it make difference what "flavor" the egomaniacal ball-licking careerist will be made a boss at any level? Does it even matter what form his/her personality disorder takes place? When you have a boot on your back pushing you down, why would it matter whose boot? I prefer a minority, in as much as a boss that wants the rank and file to like him is a minority in this job.

Also, if he is so smart, why is he unable to pass even one promotional exam based on our general orders and knowledge of the job???

Let's call it the "Leo Schmitz Syndrome" or the "Lucy Moy-Bartosik Syndrome." Neither one of those two mopes ever passed a single exam.

If so, Noel is too stupid to be a boss, regardless of being a great guy.

Noel couldn't see criminal activity occurring under his nose? Would he list it as a strength or weakness on his resume?

Would he rise to the lofty heights of management in any other organization? Not a chance! Only in the City of Chiclout and CPD!

Don't be cynical. She has to do it now and would have be an idiot to wait.
The reason you do it now is to preserve the evidence and have your lawyer included in any of the walk though, any forensic evidence and be able to do their independent investigation. In case you haven't heard, the city wanted to start demolishing the building. Whoops, all the evidence is gone

She had to do it now so her lawyer would have access to any evidence before it was destroyed. Just normal procedure for a lawyer

I don't know the woman, but I know she has a family and now she doesn't have her husband. You file quickly to prevent evidence from being lost or purposely destroyed. Obviously you aren't much a copper if you didn't know that, if you are at all.

Now let's examine you as a human being: A man is lost to his family. Initial reports point to an improperly permitted repair having something (or everything) to do with it. You choose to make a personal attack on this new widow with children........ at Christmas time no less. A time when even the coldest heart warms just a little.

In all of the attacks I have seen on this blog, this is the most egregious I can recall. You are scum. You are filth. You are a miserable excuse for a human being. Honestly, the world will be a better place when you are gone.
