Discipline Up Over Cameras

  • Twenty-two Chicago Police officers have been disciplined — and there has been a dramatic increase in video and audio usage — in the one-month period since the lack of audio in the Laquan McDonald and Ronald Johnson shooting videos prompted a warning from the acting superintendent.

    Punishments ranged from a mere reprimand to a three-day suspension or loss of leave, according to Police Department....
And of course, the alder-assholes are making hay over this:
  • Ald. Anthony Beale (9th), former chairman of the City Council’s Police Committee, considers the dramatic increase in audio and video usage proof positive that something fishy was going on.

    “If there was nothing mechanically wrong with these cameras and all of the sudden, you have a 75 percent increase, that means they were being disabled. Someone had to be systematically tampering with the cameras. Maybe they don’t want anybody listening or watching,” Beale said.
Or how about this - the Department, which always buys crap equipment from the lowest connected bidder, bought crappy equipment, then failed to maintain the crappy equipment. Then, since the political pressure became too much, actually paid MASSIVE amounts of overtime to the officers in the "technology section" to actually go out to the districts and perform the routine maintenance that had been lacking for the past two, three or four years, resulting in.....a sudden increase in compliance!

In Chicago? Never!!!

By the way, did Beale vote for or against the $5 million settlement without even seeing the videotape in question? Just wondering.

I can't believe what our profession has come to. Regarding Sandra Bland the Texas officer writes he ordered her to exit the vehicle to conduct a safer traffic stop - a grand jury determined this was a lie and he is charged with Perjury? WTF - so if I order someone to exit a vehicle for officer safety a grand jury could conclude i had another motive and charge me with Perjury???

WASHINGTON (ABC7) — An ABC7 News car was broken into while the crew was attending a press conference held by D.C. Mayor Muriel Bowser and Police Chief Cathy Lanier to discuss a Task Force created to fight robberies.

According to ABC7 News reporter Stephen Tschida, thieves tore through the news vehicle Wednesday morning and a culprit smashed a window out of the car and stole a cache of equipment.

Excuse me but.. "actually paid MASSIVE amounts of overtime to the officers in the "technology section" to actually go out to the districts and perform the routine maintenance that had been lacking for the past two, three or four years, "

Wouldn't this work be done by I.B.E.W. civilian electricians in the Electronics and Motor Maintenance Division not sworn officers. Years ago when a Mars loudspeaker microphone blinded a copper an when airbag went off. The next day they went to all squad cars and removed the microphones by cutting the cables instead of just unscrewing the plugs. We were without loudspeakers for a long time until they could get new microphones and relocate the holders to another part of the dashboard.

That's the kind of retro maintenance they do.

Beale is another of the Where's Mine Caucus... so what he has to say is only to incite his constituency.
Surely he hopes for a chance at being mayor with his rhetoric that includes all the Caucus assholes that are stepping up to the Anti-Police soapbox.
But you have to be disgusted with comments like: "...Maybe they don’t want anybody listening or watching,” Beale said."
Here's an Alderstool that doesn't want the City Council to be subject to investigations . Alderstool Austin was once quoted " Ain't nobody going to tell me what to do..." referencing the IG's plan to investigate city council corruption allegations.
So this Black Caucus, so filled with hate and corruption is drawing attention democrat-style away from their own improprieties.
I'm sure Beale and the B-C stamp of approval for the settlement was swift and certain.

Road to Sandra Bland's Alma Mater Named for Her

Updated: Wed 8:06 PM, Jan 06, 2016
By: Associated Press

"PRAIRIE VIEW, Texas - A small Texas university town where a black Chicago-area woman was arrested during a traffic stop, launching a chain of events that ended in her death in a jail cell, has renamed for her the road to her alma mater.

"The Prairie View City Council voted Tuesday night to rename University Boulevard, the road to the Prairie View A&M University campus, to Sandra Bland Boulevard.

"The vote came after an afternoon of demonstrations backing the move. Bland's death prompted numerous protests of law enforcement handling of her case.

"A July 10 traffic stop in Prairie View escalated into a confrontation between Bland and a state trooper that led to Bland's arrest. She was found hanged in her Waller County jail cell in Hempstead July 13 in a death ruled suicide."

About seven years ago, I had the experience of being arrested by gentlemen from the 18th district. A shop owner said i had pulled a gun on him and hit the alarm. First responders move in and find no weapon, no anything, but they were required to address this young man's complaint. Long story short, the police officers realized it was a B.S. call and treated me with the same respect I had treated them with. We were telling jokes as they tried to find one computer they could use that worked. Having worked in IT security after the service, I asked if this happened often, they replied that finding a working computer was like playing the lottery and made their jobs that much more difficult.
Having had this experience makes me believe that very little of the CPD technology stuff gets the attention it deserves. Cameras, computers, radios. It has got to make an already stressful job that much more difficult. I will volunteer my services as an IT guy to the CPD for free as we come from law enforcement backgrounds and military too.
CPD, thank you for the sacrifices you make and know that some of us still respect our city's finest. SCC, will mail my contacts to you in case I can be of help.
Sincerely, a grateful citizen.....

A FOIA to the city asking very specific question?

In previous years how many camera repair tickets were submitted each month and the average time it took to repair the cameras each month.

If you repair cameras faster it is likely to generate more new repair tickets.

request list of all repair tickets and reason why camera did not function. I know every one thinks nobody keep track but XO's are required to keep tabs on silly thing like this I guess that unit must not have a very smart XO or commander.

RAHM must ask what the hell does an XO do if he can't maintain cameras and other equipment in a station.

Due to the lack of a state budget, the Secretary of State's office is suspending the mailing of vehicle registration renewal reminder notices. By suspending this service, which will save approximately $450,000 per month, the office will be able to prolong the ability to mail vehicle registration renewal stickers, titles and license plates to vehicle owners for a few months longer before the postage account is depleted. Vehicle owners are encouraged to be mindful of their vehicle registration status. Motorists can sign up to receive reminder notices electronically by email. Got one in 12th district last night!

Can anyone explain something to me. Right now I am on a long-term IOD and about to return. I have been off for 9 long months due to a back injury. But with the video/audio issue isn't the audio only supposed to be used during a legit TS? So in theory had the audio been in fact turned on wouldn't the coppers have actually been gigged for that? I'm confused on this. Have things changed regarding the order?

Looks like Chicago teachers union are after rahms and anitas heads also! karen lewis is back, not getting praised from me a 9161 copper, this is the same crew that sent protesters to Ferguson to protest police! Its behind Tribunes paywall but here is the story:

Chicago Teachers Union calls for Emanuel, Alvarez to resign

The Chicago Teachers Union has officially added its voice to those calling for Mayor Rahm Emanuel and Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez to step down in light of the city's ongoing controversies over police tactics and accountability.

The union said its House of Delegates "voted overwhelmingly" last week to support efforts aimed at getting Emanuel and Alvarez to resign. CTU President Karen Lewis will talk about the issue at the union's annual Rev. Martin Luther King Jr. Peace Breakfast on Jan. 15, the union said.

The resolution passed by the delegates has no legal bearing and is simply a political statement from the union, which is in stalemated negotiations with the mayor's school board over a contract to replace one that expired last June.

The resolution approved by CTU delegates last Wednesday includes a series of allegations against Emanuel and Alvarez. Among them are that the two officials "delayed the release of (the police shooting) videos for their own political gains in order to secure victory in their 2015 re-election bids."
he union also endorsed pending legislation that would allow voters to recall Chicago's mayor.

Emanuel spokesman Adam Collins said in a statement that "the CTU organized against the mayor's campaigns in 2011 and 2015, and this is nothing more than a continuation of their long-standing political position."

How many districts do we have, so many changes over the last couple of years in this fu&*^ng Chitcago that these so called politicians have made, why don't our so called aldermen put up office in every district facility and cut down to 25 or so aldermen and save the city a ton of money. These parasite aldermen don't do a damn thing to earn the 100,000 plus a year salary, it's really disgusting how these parasites run the city and then put the blame on the police. Unlike the fire and police, how many clout positions are there throughout the city in the different positions in the city making tons of money. How many backroom deals have been made with our fu#$@ng politicians like the money that was given to mom instead of the state in the Mcdonald fiasco. But no blame the police for everything wrong in this city with these mutts of all races running around committing crime after crime on a daily basis. FOP is not even here to back us up, they're so deep up city halls anal that it is not even amusing no more. We as PO's need to watch our own backs from now on even our own bosses many of them are throwing us under the bus to save their own hides. Perfect example is our new glories sup, trying to fire the two PO'S because they got a gun off the street but lied about how they got it. How about those hundreds of thousands of dollars ESCALANTE gave to some POS informant back in the day, oops did that come out sorry. This POS is just as dirty as a lot of alleged po's, bosses and politicians have been accused off. Where's the outrage in that and why isn't the federal probe starting at the top, starting with the mayor. Where's all of my tax dollars been going too, all these years going back to FUCKING KING DALEY. This MOTH@#$%&^ER will meet his maker some day and burn in hell for eternity.

When the body count rises due to no police stops, whether vehicular or pedestrian, the tone of 35th street and the 5th floor will change, after the community starts complaining, to one of begging for pro-active police work. If Rahm thought the police were fetal before, he hasn't seen anything.

Nothing in the orders say you got to make Terry stops/ISR stops. Can't be gigged for not doing Terry stops.

Go to your jobs. Do what is required and no more.

Know the orders, know the criminal laws/city ordinances and criminal case law as it pertains to law enforcement, doing so will aid you in knowing how to perform your job and ultimately stay out of trouble. To not educate yourself makes you, and probably your partner, prime meat for the political grinder.

Does this really warrant the front page of the Sun-Times? They need to be reporting How and Why, and Who profited from a Parking Meter Deal that runs well into the 2080's! Who made millions brokering that deal? At some point this anti-police propaganda is going to get people hurt. Also, where is the New Superintendent? Rahm can't even find someone willing to take the job, and when he does it will be a Black Civilian.

Yes, this DOES warrant front page coverage. And you know why? Because some of us, in our arrogance to sabotage the proper usage of department equipment, and apparently right under the noses of the front-line supervisors, have been caught. Parking meter deal? Already covered numerous times. Blame former mayor Shortshanks. It's done, and we cannot get out of it, as Rahm attempted to extract the city from the deal, with only limited concessions from LAZ Parking Inc. As far as a 'black civilian' heading up the dept., who knows WHO will be the next Supt.? Escalante might just pull it out and remain in power as the next confirmed Supt. He has certainly surprised many with his hard line on disciplinary actions in just a few weeks since he sat down in the #1 chair here, and that may well sway the aldermen and the Police Board to keep him in place. Although many who may apply are likely giving it some serious thought, no doubt, many will apply. Hell, I'm sure some will even apply for the top job in the police depts. of Ferguson, Mo. and Fox Lake, two jobs most of us here wouldn't accept under any circumstances.

It's already occurred here. Several years ago a desk officer in 003 was forced to shoot a man brandishing a handgun in the 003rd district station. Most times we go looking for trouble, sometimes trouble comes looking for us, even in our strongholds. It stands to reason that officers today should be even more alert to potential trouble in their places of regular employment and in hospitals.

I disagree with riding it out.
Start researching lateral moves to a place you'll be (more) appreciated. Think big and check out other states, if your family life permits it. There's no point in being miserable ANOTHER ten to fifteen years. You'll poison yourself from the inside out and damage your family relationships.
Check out Fed jobs if your resume/background permits it.
As a last resort, pull the pin on your 20th anniversary and move on to another career. Plan, work at it and set yourself up for that next move and be ready to jump the day after your 20th. It'll give you a goal and something to live for, besides this job.
And good luck. Really mean it. I know many people who wish they got out when their gut told them to leave, but they stayed and got bitter or lost hope. Don't let yourself be that person.

Signed up for email notifications Today I was notified one car had plates about to expire in February. Included in the notification was a registration ID and a Pin number along with a link to the SOS so I could renew online. Clicked on the link and renewal took a few minutes, probably 2 or 3 Now all I have to do is wait for it to be delivered. Couldn't have been easier

-----------------
you cannot apply online unless you have the secret code that is in the notice they are no longer mailing so unless you are previously signed up for the online stuff you almost have to go to the sos office nearest you to renew your plates.

I have started bringing my lunch from home. Every place I enter I can see the hate in everyone's faces. I have gotten parinoiod about people doing things to my food. I am half way through with my career and am thinking of filing for bankruptcy and getting a entry level position in some other town. This is all I ever wanted to do and I can't anymore
------------------
can't say I blame you any. even for the so called "good" cops the bad cops have created a lot of bad blood with the citizens that would normally in the past have supported police.

best bet is to lobby FOP to change your pension plan to a defined contribution style plan so it can be taken with you so you are free to leave if you feel the need to do so. The city uses the pension plans against its employees to force them to stick around.

I live in a sleepy little village in Northern Illinois. I used to feel safer when I saw a cop. Now when I see one I wonder what trivial offense I might have unintentionally committed that will allow him to get me. that is an unfortunate side effect of turning police from peace officers into mostly revenue generators.

not a cop

Two choices if your plates are due. Sign up online today If your plates are due within 60 days they will send you the renewal info including the registration and PIN in one day Then you renew online. Did it yesterday.
Second is to call the SOS at a number given about the notification. They will give you the necessary info to do the renewal online. Couldn't do that yesterday because SOS is closed on Saturdays.

must be something new they are doing. this was not possible when I renewed 6 or 8 weeks ago. the only option then was to go to a SOS facility because they were not emailing the secret codes out or giving them out on the phone, at least so said the SOS employee I talked with on the phone about it.

Is new took affect 1 January 2016. 6 to 8 weeks ago was 2015. It's very easy now and saves you from driving to the SOS and then having the to wait in line and be bearded around like cattle. Now you can do it while viewing SCC
