No Immunity?

Anyone else get the feeling that with this CIT training and OEMC getting tossed under the Rahm Bus that we (the CPD) are going to be sent to every single call that comes into 9-1-1 very shortly?

Fire has the option to refuse, but we don't - unless a supervisor steps up and codes the job. That makes this article even more disturbing:
  • The Illinois Supreme Court ruled 4-3 to discard a rule that protects fire, police and ambulance services accused of failing to provide a level of response from lawsuits.

    Cook County Record reported that justices Thomas Kilbride, Anne Burke, Charles Freeman and Mary Jane Thesis came together to abolish the public duty rule. Chief Justice Rita Garman, Robert Thomas and Lloyd Karmeier joined in a dissent to the majority position.

    "We conclude that the underlying purposes of the public duty rule are better served by application of conventional tort principles and the immunity protection afforded by statutes than by a rule that precludes a finding of a duty on the basis of the defendant’s status as a public entity," Kilbride wrote in the lead opinion. "Accordingly, we hereby abolish the public duty rule and its special duty exception. Therefore, in cases where the legislature has not provided immunity for certain governmental activities, traditional tort principles apply."
This appears to be a big deal - based entirely on the "perception" of protection "owed" to individuals by the police and fire services. You know who might have a decent shot at a giant class-action type lawsuit? Low crime areas stripped of police protection who then suffer a rise in crime. Kind of like the stuff the "CrimeInWrigleyville" blog keeps track of.

Wonder how much Loevy and Loevy paid Ed to push this through. How about no immunity for judges that give light sentences to offenders who go out and kill again? How about for prosecutors who allow sacred victims to drop charges and have the offender injure them later?

Hmm heres an idea... a public official is elected to perform certain duties. Say for example a poor citizen is walking down the street coming home from the store when they are attacked by a misguided youth who then grabs there wallet and cellphone and runs off while on home monitoring as promoted by Prewinkle and Dart. Well Dart for one was elected as a sheriff to run the jail and safeguard the community and the policies promoted by him and Prewinkle are putting the public at risk. Don't know if they are given immunity as State's attorneys apparently have...but it looks like they FAIL in their duty to uphold their office.

Well, at least the IL Supreme Court ruled that the constitution can't be be messed with when it comes to protecting our pensions -remember that they worry about their pensions, too. But, they threw public safety under the bus with this ruling. Then again, the IL Supremes needs to ensure future lawyers their livelihood. Justice Burke had a thriving legal practice before she skyrocketed to the Supreme Court. The bottom feeder becomes an icon of jurisprudence.

How about the people living in the 016th district? Station was once manned with over 380 officers now there's about 180 and its one of if not the largest district in the city. Burglaries and property crimes are out of control there. But those crimes don't affect the city's bond rating. Murders do so all police resources are allotted to the lowest tax generating populace to try to keep the savages from slaughtering each other. The 7th district is one of the smallest districts in the city and has over double the man power of 016 and its flooded with specialized outside units as well. The police are tripping over one another there and they still can't keep the mutts from murdering each other. But don't dare have the police shoot one of the ghetto scholars. Then all of a sudden blm.

I have family that have mental health issues. When they are on the right meds, they are perfectly normal. When they are not, they are a danger to themselves. They hear voices that are not there. They see plots and conspiracies. One is convinced her long dead husband is plotting against her. He and His unseen minions steal her paper, rob her bank account, and perform all kinds of mischief.

I suppose blaming him is easier than admitting she has caused herself most of her problems. Many of her kids are also touched. And they wonder why I don't have children?

Considering the conflicting interests implied in this ruling, why didn't Anne Burke recuse herself? I guess we all can figure that out.

What specific jobs are exempted by the legislature? The legislature itself maybe? Can't sue the king.

And if the failure to provide protection (service) is due to logistical issues and or just simple manpower shortages, who gets sued? The police themselves or the city fathers who created the shortage? Man this sounds screwed up!,

(shakin' ma head) Here we go again folks (and people).

Once again a branch of the Illinois government -- Yes Moonbat Trolls and recent 'graduates' of Chicago Public Schools, the Courts are a branch of government -- provides a shining example of why Illinois is MOCKED and DERIDED by basically everyone in the civilized world who has an IQ above room temperature. That Illinois resembles a place governed more like a 3rd World Banana Republic with incompetent, CERTIFIED MORONS, in charge of every branch with people who are there solely because of who they're related to. Who they know -- 'who sent you'. Who they paid off. And who they blew and screwed to get the job!

And this majority opinion confirms this fact. Why you may ask?...simple:
----- The ruling is Unconstitutional! -----
The U.S. Supreme Court, aka SCOTUS, has ruled and ruled again, that Police (and Fire iirc) Have NO Duty To Protect. A simple and quick Google Search verifies this. A search so simple that even the simpletons on the IL Supreme Court could have done it.

Ergo, if you do NOT have a 'Duty To Protect', you have NO liability. And you cannot be sued for NOT doing something you're NOT responsible (liable) for NOT doing in the first place. Not even here in; The Peoples Republik of Madiganistan (aka Illinois)

Now I am NOT a lawyer, though I have played one in court :-). But even I know that every law in the USA and every state constitution HAS TO conform with the U.S. Constitution, and all SCOTUS decisions. It's that Supremacy Clause 'thingy'.
(Obama's DOJ not going after rogue states like Colorado is besides the point)

an aside:
This is in the linked article from 'PoliceOne.com' .....
The rule dated back to the 19th century and held that local municipalities are presumed to "owe no duty to individual members of the general public to provide adequate government services, such as police and fire protection."
Again, this is not just some tradition of common law. 'No Duty to protect' been reaffirmed numerous times by SCOTUS.

Sorry for being off topic but today's Sun-Times article really explains for the average citizen the significance of the Koschman case. It has also vividly illustrated the fact that the CPD cannot be trusted to come up with even a remotely fair promotional process. This process needs to come under federal control with no CPD boss involved. The M2 Mafia wields a great amount of clout in the merit promotional process. I will no longer think that the most egregious abusers of this process are minorities and women. Good Job Sun-Times.

I can see this "ruling" by our "enlightened" state judiciary going all the way to the US Supreme Court. In theory it should be overturned by them. At least that would be the case prior to Justice Obama being appointed to the court by HRC - THAT should scare the hell out of everyone.

Like the original article says in so many words there is no "right" to get police or fire protection. That has already been adjudicated by the US Supreme Court.

I also find the ... ahem ... "timing" of this ruling rather odd. The original incident happened back in 2008.

The FOP does send out press releases and informational bulletins countering what the city says. However, the media refuses to publish it.

Off Topic - Response FYI - Live in the City

One of your many out-of-state readers who reads this Blog so we know that we should stop complaining and realize no matter how bad it seems here, Chicago has it worse.

California use to have these live in the city requirements. Mostly came into play in the 1970s when we were trying to recruit community members to join the ranks. The excuse also was that cops needed to live in the city so they could be available to respond to emergencies. Probably the same justification used by your political masters.

The courts tossed this out because, well, when was the last time the police department had to call out troopers from home? Even if they did, what mattered was not where they lived, but how long it would take them to get to headquarters. Most our agencies have who have a residence requirement adopted a 50 air mile radius from city hall. Fifty air miles is a long ways. Most agencies don't have a requirement.

Good luck to you all. For those of you who can get out, I might suggest you follow my Mrs. (Harvard as in Il.) out to the golden state. Are we screwed up? Not compared to what you folkd are apparently forced to put up with. Looking at your pay scale we have Lieutenants making your Commander's pay. Deputies and officers start near 100 gs.

30 years and out, if you work for the county, walk across the street and get hired as police officer and do another ten while pulling full retirement from the county. Cops do it in reverse. Typical to retire as a captain and start the next week as a patrolman. Just a thought.

By the way, my wife was trying to explain to me what this wind chill thing is. Going outside to sit by the pool and work on my tan.

Be safe.

Bunch of jail house lawyers on this blog.

To keep it simply and brief, there are two ways a municipality defends negligence suits in STATE court. The public duty rule was a common law rule (I.e. created by court decision) that came from a "sovereign" clause in the original IL Constitution. The sovereign clause is gone and the public duty rule is now kaput. The court invites the legislature to write a statute if they wish to revive this rule.

The second defense is the Tort Immunity Act which is a state statute. A municipality is generally immune from damages in negligence suits in STATE court unless there is willful or wanton recklessness. In that case, the municipality and its employees are still immune from punitive damages in a negligence lawsuit filed in STATE court.

None of this has anything to do with a standard 1984 suit filed in FEDERAL court where punitives are readily available through FEDERAL statute. None of this has anything to do with any US Supreme Court decisions.

This decision will open the door to lawsuits against fire and EMS in state court because their is no avenue to get those cases into federal court. Police lawsuits can almost always be filed in federal court.

Please stop listening to people who don't know what they are talking about.

Take heart, when the revolution starts, the liberals will be the first to go.

How about the people living in the 016th district? Station was once manned with over 380 officers now there's about 180 and its one of if not the largest district in the city. Burglaries and property crimes are out of control there. But those crimes don't affect the city's bond rating. Murders do so all police resources are allotted to the lowest tax generating populace to try to keep the savages from slaughtering each other. The 7th district is one of the smallest districts in the city and has over double the man power of 016 and its flooded with specialized outside units as well. The police are tripping over one another there and they still can't keep the mutts from murdering each other. But don't dare have the police shoot one of the ghetto scholars. Then all of a sudden blm.

What I can't understand is why this is not getting through most people's thick skulls ..I mean, does the working class enjoy working their ass off so that they don't get the police service they deserve? So that those who contribute the least are called 'victims' by the media and get stuff just handed to them for free without paying any taxes? I just read a headline on social media that read: Chicago Police Misconduct Tab, $642 Million Since 2004. From the SunTimes. You should read some of the moronic anti police comments. Talking about using that money to fund schools and programs. As if the police are the problem!? Un-fcking believable! Never a mention of the bullshit payouts or astronomical medical costs it takes to handle a city that spawns 500 plus homocides a year not including bullet wound injuries. think those "victims" have blue cross blue shield? Why there isn't a massive expose on all the medical services and costs being performed at Sinai, Christ, Strogers, Laredo, etc.. all with tax dollars is beyond me.

Dear Citizens, we the Police have been backed into a corner we have had everything done to us but our nuts cut off. We are at the edge of the cliff. We do not have any real advocacy. We cannot speak up of these fouls, it is against our employment contract. We do the job and get hurt, and get sued, and take the hits without so much as a pat on the back. We have no voice...But you. You, who pay the taxes have to demand better and not take this shit anymore. Screw the political correctness or fear of being called a racist. You the silent majority have to gather in numbers and strength and march just like those idiots do into the confines of city hall and demand of your politicians to put and end to this madness. There are plenty of hard working Black folks living in these areas that are sick of this shit too. Unable to walk without fear in their own neighborhoods. Only until the silent majority is heard will there be change. Failure to do so will result in continual pandering by media and politicians to this very small group of people and the loss of your tax dollars. What an opportunity for the FOP to organize something important!

'Bunch of jail house lawyers on this blog. ~~~snip~~ This decision will open the door to lawsuits against fire and EMS in state court because their is no avenue to get those cases into federal court. Police lawsuits can almost always be filed in federal court. ~~~snip~~~ Blah, blah, blah, ~~~snip~~~ Please stop listening to people who don't know what they are talking about.

I assume you mean ME, since I went into a little detail in my post. And if I have things wrong from misinterpreting the article, fine. I'm a big boy. And I sure as hell 'ain't' perfect.

But ya know what Sparky, don't be an asshole about it in saying I'm wrong. And don't hide behind the fucking Anonymous label, and address me directly not with that 'Jail House Lawyer' bullshit.

Furthermore, since you 'appear' to be an attorney how about doing the folks here st SCC a favor and EXPLAIN how this bullshit ruling from these democrat toadies in black robes effects them in doing their job AS POLICE. Write down some examples, a couple different scenarios. It doesn't have to be long just a few examples.

In conclusion, you may have noticed, or not, that I clarified that I was not a lawyer. As such, anyone who'd take my post as legal gospel would be pretty fucking stupid, wouldn't they.

Have a nice day.

(note: I could've been a lawyer but my mom wanted me to do something respectable for a living. .... So I became a pimp.)
(Hahahahaha yeah, old joke, but it still cracks me up)

And this majority opinion confirms this fact. Why you may ask?...simple:
----- The ruling is Unconstitutional! -----
The U.S. Supreme Court, aka SCOTUS, has ruled and ruled again, that Police (and Fire iirc) Have NO Duty To Protect. A simple and quick Google Search verifies this. A search so simple that even the simpletons on the IL Supreme Court could have done it.


(725 ILCS 5/107-16)
Sec. 107-16. Apprehension of offender. It is the DUTY of every sheriff, coroner, and every marshal, policeman, or other officer of an incorporated city, town, or village, having the power of a sheriff, when a criminal offense or breach of the peace is committed or attempted in his or her presence, forthwith to apprehend the offender and bring him or her before a judge, to be dealt with according to law; to suppress all riots and unlawful assemblies, and to keep the peace, and without delay to serve and execute all warrants and other process to him or her lawfully directed.
(Source: P.A. 89-234, eff. 1-1-96.)

Perhaps the jail house lawyer crack was out of line. I apologize.

The problem is that misinformation is like starting a fire. In today's climate, it is irresponsible especially when discussing our financial liability. There is certainly enough true information slowing us down without piling false info on top.

Can't see anyone ever wanting or thinking of being a police officer in Chicago. It will be interesting to see how testing for Chicago PD will be marketed. Look at how no one wants to work as a correctional officer in the county, how many quit or apply for other law enforcement jobs after working for a year or two.... ((( hint, hint, hint...
