This is What They Promote?

  • Top-to-bottom changes at the Chicago Police Department are a direct response to the police-involved killing of Laquan McDonald last year.

    Yet at least two CPD veterans who were promoted over the weekend were directly involved in the now-disputed official investigation that initially cleared police officer Jason Van Dyke.
Oops. We suppose after "meri-clout-oriusly" promoting the same people time and time again, when you need to "reform" something, tell, you still need to control the "reformers," right? So your supposed "reformers" are actually insiders, who really aren't capable of reforming jack shit.

And the media has all these reports and is actually making connections - for once. It's almost impressive.

Let's see what they make of this one:
  • January 02, 1992 By Steve Johnson.

    A security guard at a Near West Side school disciplined four 7th-grade girls caught in the hallways after lunch by forcing them to eat cakes of caustic soap, a federal lawsuit charges.

    The students at the Talcott School, 1840 W. Ohio St., were found wandering the halls on Oct. 10 by the guard, an off-duty Chicago police officer, according to the lawsuit filed Tuesday.

    The officer brought them to a vice principal`s office where she offered to punish the students herself, said Denise Devitt, the attorney who filed the suit on behalf of three of the girls and their mothers seeking unspecified damages.

    When the vice principal approved this, Devitt said, the officer, whom Devitt identified as Maria Pena of the Wood District (ALERT ALERT - A CLUE! A CLUE! MEDIA LOOK HERE!!! - SCC), led the girls to a bathroom. Once there, a second security guard, identified as Marcy Mercado, allegedly barred the door, according to the suit.

    Then, Pena, who was wearing her police uniform, allegedly forced the 11-and 12-year-olds to begin eating bars of heavy-duty janitorial soap, causing one of them to vomit, Devitt said.
Anyone remember how much that one cost the city? Or the harassment beef filed against her in 010 for what was pretty much a slam-dunk libel/slander suit concerning a female officer? And paging through the hundreds of comments in the "Changes" post a few days ago, there are more than a few other...shall we say "questionable" histories among the listed promotees. It's almost like these promotions are more to pay off Rahm's critics than to actually "refrom" anything. These people can't be reformers seeing as how they are integral parts of the problems.

FYI at the fop meeting tonight. The fop met with federal investigators and the us attorney last Wednesday regarding the investigation and oversight and the message from the fop, actually spoken by the fop tonight is to "turn down the activity and police work". There it is kids, from your Union, slow it down. Obviously they got a bad vibe from the meeting. Good luck it you don't heed the many warnings

You got to give old Mario credit. She wasn't an uncouth bully like Curtin. She was more in the mold of Nurse Ratched from 'One Flew Over the Cuckoo's Nest.' She presented an outward appearence of phoney friendliness and lame team spirit. Yet underneath that facade was a genuine creepiness that officers could immediately detect.

She ended up taking some suspension time back in September for those beefs and the dumb sgt.'s tried to cover it up by saying she was on vacation. That's Mario's real legacy. Not how she crippled a district with her psychotic micro-managing skills, but how she exposed just how spineless some of the white shirts in our district are. It was pathetic how many of them catered to her every whim, even the ones on bid that should have told her to fuck off. Especially the two sgt.'s on days. One is the big dork with glasses that isn't half as smart as he thinks he is, the other clown used to work tac in 025 and probably never worked a full tour. It's all legit right Sgt. D?

The gp of R&D (formally of the Academy) needs to be added to this list of meritcloutourious promoted individuals.
No, she is not a sworn officer (although at times she has intimated such to some people)
When she was promoted to Admin Mgr position from Training Officer (why they came up with that name for civilians is beyond me) she was far from qualified.
There were many others more qualified than she.
She takes more days and hours off of work than the Sup's secretary.
She's been home for at least 2 days each week for the past two months.
Marked present for work on the A&S's on each of those days.

IAD, news media, and Inspector General all notified.
IAD has done nothing. NOTHING!! No investigation into this theft from the city of Chicago.
News Media, I hope are following her
Inspector General, I hope are following her.
(and giving it up on here that she may be being followed, no biggie cause she just can't help herself. She has done this for so long she just can't stop. And by the way this is a HUGE theft. Think of how many days have been noted here alone that she was not at work. Add them up. It amounts to a lot of $$$$$$$)

My NEW Year's wish is that she is caught as well as the timekeepers that have marked her present on the A&A's

You all are missing the point of these promotions. Now, that surprises me because Mayor Emmanuel has stripped all of the mystery away and made it glaringly obvious:

ALL promotions will now be made solely for political gain. Your greatest asset, or weakness, is the voting block you belong to. Ethnicity, gender, sexual orientation or member of a power group downtown trump any other qualification. Competency be damned.

Most promotions used to be based on strengths. The old days of promoting a few from the correct voting block, or somebodies kid are over. Now ALL promotions will benefit the Mayor's voting base no matter how incompetent they are.

Look at Rahm's promotions in the Department. The all Spanish group of which Maria Pena was a part a few years ago was a glaring example. A Spanish voting block was unhappy and boom! The all Spanish group is promoted to Commander that week. It would have been laughable, if so many of them weren't completely embarrassingly not qualified.

This Department's problem all stem from the Mayor. We might have hated the last guy too. We all know he had his hand in the promotional process too. Mayor Daley, or his handlers, also know that the people in charge of the Department knew more about it than Daley did. The Department was run, for the most part, by members of the Department.

The mess we have now belongs to Rahm and Rahm alone. He has proved to be a horrible manager in all areas.

Yes, all good points. But, frankly, in the long run no one outside the department really cares. You would be hard pressed to find anyone in the media to ever ask the superintendent or the mayor any of these questions at a press conference. That is why all of this ripping over the McDonald case is selected outrage. The forces are only interested in firing cops not in actually reforming anything. Putting Hirum on the committee should have told you that.

CPD FOIA email address to make a request: foia@chicagopolice.org

No special form needed. You don't need to use your real name. Use a gmail account if you like. If there is no response in 5 days you can sue.

For some more fun include the CPD General Counsel. Add a cc to ralph.price@chicagopolice.org so no one can say the email was misplaced or lost.

Seek out records for merit packages, contracts, CR's, emails, personnel files, memos, etc. pretty much anything you want. The department is giving out your CR files all the time. Fight back.

That's the same person who was promoted to detective, sergeant, to lieutenant, to commanding officer of two separate specialized units, to Commander of two different patrol districts and was just promoted to Street Deputy all on merit/clout. We're those her brave and meritorious actions forcing young girl s to eat caustic soap cakes while being held captive while she was in uniform carrying her firearm? OMG please tell me this isn't true. How does the city, county, state and federal government allow this person to remain working with a firearm. Because holding four girls captive against their will in a room barred by another uniformed and gun carrying officer and making them eat caustic materials sounds like kidnapping, assault, aggravated battery, unlawful restraint, aggravated assault all while armed with their firearms. This was not an act like forgetting to get a city sticker or a lost radio. These are some of the most serious violent criminal charges our county has. All against children. All while armed. And besides any other complaints she has, she gets promoted on merit like seven times. Which means she passed an exam but was promoted over others who had higher scores because she what? Saved someone's life...No. Put herself in danger to save someone else.....No. Was shot or seriously injured while in the performance of her duties .....No. None of these not once and not seven times. Clout, Clout, Clout someone has decided that she can do no wrong, not even criminally against our CHILDREN. Shame on the mayor, shame on the superintendents who promoted her so quickly or at all and all who allowed this violent criminal to continue to be Law Enforcement. What a disgrace to all law enforcement officers and what a disgrace to this city and the people she was trusted to protect and not be a predator over.

I think this is called "aggravated battery to a child."

If one of those kids had aspirated a chunk of this stuff, they could have died.

This is not a police officer. This is a loose-running dangerous animal who should have been immediately stripped, brought to trial, and chained into the bus loading for prison -- and there would have been a lot of people on that chain who had more decency than her.

Child abuser for Deputy Chief of Street Operations. Way to go, Rahm. Really "building bridges" here.

No Surprise...There wont be a lawsuit. They already gave them the money. This is a settled matter in the minds that run our fair city.

If we see these guys on the hatchet block, it means that the Feds investigation really has legs.

I worked with McNaughton in patrol, and he was a fair man then. ROY on the other hand was a hungry megalomaniac boss with plenty of ambition when I met him. No ability to discern and do the right thing when my case arose to his attention. He walked around smug as he always did, and I'm willing to bet he doesn't even remember my name...I'd write about what he said to me, but he swore me to silence about what we talked about, and we agreed that the matter would not leave the room. I'm going to honor that for my integrity's sake. He was just covering his ass...

If the Department is purging for the right reasons, Roy needs to GO. Mc Naughton was nice man who used to look for justice. Lets hope he has not lost his way.

Making asshole trouble making kids eat soap is nowhere near as bad as some of the things police are on trial for these days but it is a sign of someone who should not be a boss. I guess if you keep promoting bad bosses eventually they are hidden away from the troops that they are paid to lead . She has had three merit "test" promotions and two exempt spots but her past is moot to those who make that type of decisions I guess.

Promote someone who will:

-open lockups
-bring back late rapid cars that are essential to safe operations while watches makes their relief, instead of having a fake tact mission team who doesn't have to answer calls or much else.
-Watch Commanders
-Desk Sergeants
-Allow Commanders to run their districts the way they see fit.
-End failed squad program before someone gets hurt. no manpower during watch relief times. The design of the Program isn't being followed and can't be so we are worst off with what we have than before the program.

The Sun Times had listed Rogers Park as one of the fewest in the city with "Raps".(Radio Assignments pending) (No police available to help someone calling for help)
However, if they were to do their homework they will see that "raps" in Rogers Park have increased by like 300 percent since the advent of the Squad Program. Rogers Park is now ridden with a spike in gang killings, assassinations and shootings. Rogers Park is being ruined by the misuse of manpower and by continuing to not let go of a failed dangerous Squad Program. Give the power back to the Commander to run his district instead of trying to play a numbers game on paper while the district, in reality, goes to shit.

As another poster pointed out, everyone over the rank of LT is automatically an insider and beholden to many. Prior too the "merit" promotions and female supervisors if you had a serious problem with a supervisor you could take it out in the lot or move on to greener pastures. There are no greener pastures in patrol today.

The old time supervisor was a political hack and believed he earned his spot by his loyalty to the patronage machine and treated the troops poorly just because he could ( you people who constantly complain about FOP would not believe how it was before we had them). Today's supervisors know deep down they have no business in the position they are in and take out their insecurities on their subordinates. So same shit different day.

Good luck to all under the command of nervous Nagode.

There is a big difference between a District Commander and a Commanding Officer.

That means she is now serving as a Lieutenant or a Captain and has no gold star, no gold oak leaf clusters, no scrambled eggs on her hat visor and no take home squad.

Or, was the author of the news release someone unfamiliar with the two terms not meaning the same thing? If so, shame on the authenticator of the news release.

Just watch the video in the members only section from yesterday. Angelo sounded pretty good. Then continue to watch as some nut case with a military problem that has lasted from the middle of Donahue's tenure thru Shileds and now in Angelo's tenure. What a goof. Martin Preib got booed and told to sit down by the members again last night. The meeting last night was a good cross section of the membership. Some of the remnants of Shields rookie crew, some of the left overs from the city-wide back stabbers, and a lot of retires worried about health care. So as a group when the booed the two aforementioned nitwits it was uniform.

Yes, this is correct. It used to be 5 grand to make sergeant and up to 25 grand for captain. This stopped sometime in the late 80's ( for most people). Then came in phony merit promotions which were mostly clout. As late as mid 90's taverns and lounges were able to influence police operations and license commission. Assignments? always influenced. Now, even the union is telling you to take it back a notch and slow it down as bad times are coming. No one will come to your defense or help you if you get into something, legitimate or not. take the warning for you families benefit. I am retired now, but if I was still on the job I would be doing the minimum, no citations, no arrests unless no choice, no car chases or foot chases, just answer the cAlls and take your time doing that. BAck up your co-workers. Bad storms on the horizon and people who do not have your self interest at heart are sharpening the knives. They have a knack of making just about everything look bad.

Public high schools already have at least 10 security guards in them already. Huge waste of man power as tact teams process all their arrests anyway. 2 lts per watch, not three ever. Combine 24 and 20 close 24 station. Merge 14 with someone either 17 or 12 close 14 station. Open up 10 hour days in other districts to give officers a chance to evaluate it.

However, if they were to do their homework they will see that "raps" in Rogers Park have increased by like 300 percent since the advent of the Squad Program. Rogers Park is now ridden with a spike in gang killings, assassinations and shootings. Rogers Park is being ruined by the misuse of manpower and by continuing to not let go of a failed dangerous Squad Program. Give the power back to the Commander to run his district instead of trying to play a numbers game on paper while the district, in reality, goes to shit.

Nobody wants to man up and admit what a disaster the squad program really is. You are right, if people actually read the order, we aren't even following the design of the program. It is a failed program. Period. Right now the squad program is a huge safety issue for officers, but bosses have been turning a blind eye to this. When the shit hits the fan and some poor officer gets hurt and brings up the fact that manpower was dangerously low during certain hours..... What then? And Rahm and others want to know why morale is so low and we are all so disgruntled ? Gimme a break.

I believe that's what happened when commander waldera ran the district 024, he made a useless mission/tact team, as favoriticism.. Hmmm should have threw them on midnights instead of accommodating officers that couldn't start at 1400 or 1500 hours and even had an Fto on tact team along with PPO's on their cycles. Where is FOP?

She could just blame it all on a video. That worked very well for another female that stopped a rescue of four men, causing their deaths.

Promote someone who will:

-open lockups
-bring back late rapid cars that are essential to safe operations while watches makes their relief, instead of having a fake tact mission team who doesn't have to answer calls or much else.
-Watch Commanders
-Desk Sergeants
-Allow Commanders to run their districts the way they see fit.
-End failed squad program before someone gets hurt. no manpower during watch relief times. The design of the Program isn't being followed and can't be so we are worst off with what we have than before the program.


Exactly! That's the answer to all this bs accountability Rhammy is throwing out there. He brought in the outsider that demolished our dept and turned it into a circus. Things ran smoothly then now it's a joke, nobody in charge and completely understaffed districts that lack proper supervision.

CPD FOIA email address to make a request: foia@chicagopolice.org

No special form needed. You don't need to use your real name. Use a gmail account if you like. If there is no response in 5 days you can sue.

For some more fun include the CPD General Counsel. Add a cc to ralph.price@chicagopolice.org so no one can say the email was misplaced or lost.

Seek out records for merit packages, contracts, CR's, emails, personnel files, memos, etc. pretty much anything you want. The department is giving out your CR files all the time. Fight back.

Yea, right! Ralphie and his Venga Boys will just ignore your FOIA requests. There's no hope! Someone should ask to see Stevie G's CR. That's what I'm talking about!

If the Department is purging for the right reasons, Roy needs to GO. Mc Naughton was nice man who used to look for justice. Lets hope he has not lost his way.


MCnaughton is a turd.... He would step on his mother's own throat just to get made. I remember he would assign a 2nd watch sergeant to watch the lot to make sure late cars would not come in before 630am... If they did, he would have that sgt write them up. He also told us to bring him contact cards or the sgts would have to stay until the time required to stay... if you know what I mean.... He also instructed a certain LT do deny and or order p.o.'s that did not know any better to downgrade charges to fluff the numbers. Sgt S and Sgt C would be so far up his but it was made you want to hurl. But he is good at playing the numbers game and he got made deputy chief... The Chicago way boys and girls.

For those of you who weren't around during Operation Greylord, there is a great book just published about it--named "Operation Greylord". That was a long time ago, but it doesn't mean that's not how things are still done around the city! We need another Operation Greylord but focused on the alderscum.

12/16/2015 02:35:00 PM<<<

Not long ago I talked to a retired FBI agent who had worked Greylord. I asked him why did they stop when they did? He replied, "If we kept going there would be no one left on the bench."

BTW Anything you work on now be sure it is done right and if you can make a legit notification to the Feds do it. It may save lives if they can track down a terrorist and if it keeps them busy doing that then they are not doing something else if you know what I mean.

Civilianize 2 desk spots and all existing lock ups. Close 22 and 9's lock ups. 2 doesn't process anyone, let 9 go there. It is close enough. 22 can take the prisoners to 5. Civilianize or make light duty front office, time keeping review officer etc. remove all p o s assigned to fixed posts inside schools. Public high schools already have at least 10 security guards in them already. Huge waste of man power as tact teams process all their arrests anyway. 2 lts per watch, not three ever. Combine 24 and 20 close 24 station. Merge 14 with someone either 17 or 12 close 14 station. Open up 10 hour days in other districts to give officers a chance to evaluate it. Civilianize most spots at 35 th st.

12/16/2015 02:31:00 PM

~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

I agree.
Any job done by a PO that is not security sensitive should be civilianized.
There is no reason that 98% of the jobs being done inside by PO's cannot be civilianized.
Put those officers back in districts.
Utilized the IOD limited duty for sensitive jobs.
Put all other limited duty at call back only until they return to full duty or go on disability.
The only senior staff that need driver's are the Sup and the 1st.

Actually, I know nothing about the squad program or system. But, what I do know that this is standard practice in the LAPD, something brought about by the Justice department takeover and consent decree in that city. So, maybe it will come to the CPD in the near future ?
