Ramsey's Back!

  • Charles Ramsey — who headed the Washington and Philadelphia police departments during U.S. Justice Department investigations of those agencies — has been invited by Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s administration to return to Chicago to consult on reforming the Chicago Police Department.

    Ramsey, a former deputy police superintendent in Chicago, said the city should embrace the recently launched Justice Department investigation of the Chicago Police Department’s “patterns and practices.”

    Ramsey said federal investigators worked cooperatively with the Washington and Philadephia departments while he ran them and that the result was better training for officers and a drop in police-involved shootings in each of those cities.
Any students of history here? Anyone? Does this ring a bell?

It does for us. And it should for anyone who has read the book "Boss" by Mike Royko. Following the Summerdale scandal in 1960, the elder Daley was under a not-too-dissimilar situation that Rahm is now facing. Daley put together a "blue-ribbon panel" to address police reforms and demanded that the most knowledgeable professional in police procedures be appointed to head the committee. O.W. Wilson came in from California to chair the panel and conduct a nationwide search for the next superintendent.

At the end of numerous interviews, Daley engineered his hand-picked guy on the panel to come up with the "suggestion" that since the most knowledgeable professional in police procedures was already here running the search, wouldn't it make sense to appoint O.W. Wilson as the next superintendent? The committee agreed and drafted their chairman to to spot and he was duly appointed and served seven years.

Now there is another panel. And the guy most people would say is among the most qualified is right there in the middle of it. And it's no secret that he would have taken the spot once or twice before if it had been offered. Wouldn't it be interesting.....

Charles Ramsey was born in 1950. They would have to make a rule change because he is over 63. They did that once before for a clouted boss but then eventually reverted to the 63.

Nothing new here.

Seems like they looked back into the Cloutocracy Playbook and pulled out a "Play" from years back.

Can't wait to see who they "draft" as new police officers.

Since Ramsey publicly stated he would not pursue the job, this is really the only way to gracefully finesse him changing his mind and taking the job, after all.

Rumor has it the first time he was offered it he was going to gut redundant upper management positions I.e. Deputy Chiefs, and they chose not to hire him.

On a more personal note when he was assigned to other cities he chose to keep his family in Chicago and flew in every weekend to watch his sos's grammar school football games. This may be a moment of good news for a switch.

Personally, having experiencing four decades on the job, I believe that Ramsey would be a good choice for Superintendent at this time.
Taking into account his past experience here and what I've personally watched him accomplish at his last two top law enforcement gigs, he would be a good choice.
Then again, there will be those who'll knock whomever sits in the chair. Nobody's perfect and what we need at this time is the best (available) that we have to chose from. Realistically, I'd consider Ramsey as the best to jump in at this point and time. Detractors would condemn any appointee, so let all the negatives remarks begin.

Comparing King Richard I, with Rhambalina is a bit of a stretch. Remember, Daley really grew up, lived and died in Chicago, and Chicago was a very different place back then. The Tribalism that ruled before and after WWII in Chicago is gone, as are many of the "White Ethnics", (Remember that term from when Harold was running for Mayor?) and Industry that only required a high school diploma to make a decent wage, is also gone and will not be coming back, ever! Now we have a Mayor, who ironically was an architect for that economic collapse, because while at the Clinton White House, Rhambalina was instrumental in creating and pushing for NAFTA, which cost the nation millions of jobs. Rhambalina is about Rham, not Chicago and he always intended to leave, using this as nothing more than a stepping stone. But whatever the case, this will be interesting because Ramsey is No Chump. He told Rham to take a hike on the job before, and now that Rham is begging, Rham may end up being Ramsey's Whining Lil Bitch! Baby "G"

Oh, Grasshopper, there is always a path to accomplish things for the chosen. If hired as a civilian employee of the city of Chicago, there is no age at which they are forced to leave. They can work until being 100+ years of age, as long as they can perform the duties as defined in their job description, be punctual for their assigned work hours and be able to work their entire shift, excluding breaks and lunch. Also, an exempt member does not have to be a sworn member or even a former sworn member. They could hire Bozo the Clown as your commander with no problem, if Bozo were their chosen one.

Chuck Ramsey is going to make more as a consultant working on behalf of many police departments including the CPD and have none of the headaches of being the Superintendant? He will make more money than Terry Hilliard has and will emerge as a global law enforcement consultant. See, the problem is, you guys on the beat think way too small. Chuck Ramsey is the next Rudolph Giuliani. You guys will see Chuck Ramsey at the Davos Conference kicking back with Bono or at the Clinton Global Initiative having a very deep contemplative moment with George Soros.

Rhambalina was instrumental in creating and pushing for NAFTA, which cost the nation millions of jobs.

Clinton may have signed that bill, but the real creator of that bill was the first George Bush. He started pushing for NAFTA during his vice president years under Ronald Reagan. George Bush the first started this NAFTA push and Clinton was forced to sign said bill. So, in all reality republicans and democrats are all out to take from the American people. This country has become all about the 1 percenters. The middle class is completely screwed.

As good a boss as he was, Ramsey ended up on the Obana/Holder Anti-police team as a Chair for the recently released report on Reforming Police & Procedures, which can be found on either the DOJ or IACP websites. Ramsey did not chide Onama for refusing to confront ISIS related connections with the recent ambush of the Philadelphia Police Officer.
The CPD has talent to select from within. The talent might not rank high in the current hierarchy. That would be indicative of the fact that most recently promoted Deputy Chiefs do not have the necessary leadership skills except for their race & bloated, boasting AlderCreatures singing theiir praise.
Watch for Ramsey to play a behind the scenes role similar to Terry Hillard [who is currently busy selling Tasers & running a security firm.]
But SCC raises an interesting point - the current Police Board could ask Lori Lighfoot to be the next Superintendent. The Revs & AlderCreatures would accept her, the lamesteam media will fawn over the first female Supt ( a really important criteria) and our Gay Pride Parade will have a new Grand Marshal that will eliminate AlderCreature Tuney as their spokesperson.
With all that hoopla, who will notice if crime is up or down?

No...
Shortshanks passed Ramsey up because he was planning
on gutting the Deputy Chief and Chief echelons because of
redundancies...

The Deputy Chief and Chief echelons were full
of Daley Loyalists who would have spared no
effort to undermine Ramsey.

The other thing is that Ramsey was able to think for himself.

Daley Inc. had no use for a black Police Boss (or any other) who could
think more than three inches off the tip of his nose.

Hillard?
A snake-in-the-grass
who hurt more Policemen than he helped.

A well placed little birdy related that on his last
days as supe, Hillard made it his business to
stretch every Copper who had the misfortune
having their disciplinary and separation paperwork
land in Hillard's inbox.

Disciple and discipline fairly but it looks bad when
a boss ups (doubles in many cases) a recommended lick as he's
on his way out the door.

If memory serves right, Hillard was the supe
who was stripped of control of the Police budget
by shortshanks.

There were conflicting versions of this story
but the end result is that the Superintendent
has to beg for money out of the general fund.

Budgetary chicanery to "show" CPD is funded "this much"
but also facilitating the backdoor theft of money (intentional
underfunding and other such)...

Eh fuck it...
Too old, too tired and too heart-sick to give a fuck
about pointing out Fuckery.

The "reveal" won't happen until the financial
party-players like the Pritzkers and others
have a bunch of local newsies pawing through
their panty drawers (like Policemen have to
put up with) and the contents are displayed
sunny-side up to tantilize, titillate and scandalize.

Back to Ramsey's compensation?

Rahm desperately needs a "save."
Why do you think he's been visiting roll calls?

He's afraid...

Actually the age requirement is for any sworn officer (that includes Supt)
When Townsend was 1st Deputy and was nearing 63 the age requirement was waived for all sworn. That was so Townsend could run things as the 1st for Daley until Townsend retired. (Anyone on the job back then remembers that it was the 1st Deputy that really ran the Dept) After he retired the age requirement was back in place as 63.

FUNNY STORY:

When Mayor Richie asked Hillard to come back and fill in as the temporary Superintendent after the Abate incident, he was about 67 years old.

He called Hillard in the morning and Daley said he needed an answer by the afternoon if he was interested in the job.
What is the first thing Hillard do?
He calls the Pension board and asked if the position would be pensionable so the bastard can suck some more from our pension.
Of course the answer was NO because he would have to work as a civilian.

To say the least Hillard is a greedy and stupid slug.

May be a FOIA requesting all merit picks from the last 20 year would be helpful?
But the FOIA should ask for the person who put the merit picks in and the merit pick who were not picked should be listed since the all have to fill out a gigantic resume!

You can also show how many MERIT picks never passed any test and were promoted three times! That right many of those pick are found on LA quan's case and Koschman's case.

And hiring grandpa keeps the City in spin cycle.

Ramsey wasn't chosen because he was TOO good.
Daley was very worried Ramsey, who was well-known and well-liked in the community thanks to his high profile running CAPS, would run for mayor. Fact, not speculation.

The second time, it WAS offered to Ramsey. But all he wanted was (even a dollar) more than his overpaid predecessor. Mayor wouldn't agree.

>This is the same Ramsey who sat right next to Obama during the St. Louis shooting of the black teenager thug, who went right along with the story line of the innocent college bound student being shot in the back

Hey, history student, Obama's Justice Department is the one that exonerated Darren Wilson. Or is there some other "St. Louis shooting," since Wilson's shooting of Michael Brown didn't take place in St. Louis.

The scale of the idiocy sometimes ...

>George Bush. He started pushing for NAFTA during his vice president years under Ronald Reagan. George Bush the first started this NAFTA push and Clinton was forced to sign said bill. So, in all reality republicans and democrats are all out to take from the American people. This country has become all about the 1 percenters. The middle class is completely screwed.

Nah. Clinton was a big backer. Gore debated the original guy with the big ears and the foreign name - HRoss Perot. The other major architect of NAFTA - Commerce Secretary Bill Daley.

Yeah, they had to get Republican votes in Congress, because half the Dems opposed. But this was the major Clinton economic project, along with favored nation status for China.

Though I'm no fan of NAFTA, it was the China move that was much worse. Encourage American corporations to offshore their manufacturing to a place where the army runs most manufacturing and where party leaders and other powerful people have their own private jails for those who don't like their payscale or breathing industrial poisons every day.

There is no age requirement for superintendent.

1/24/2016 09:33:00 PM


Actually the age requirement is for any sworn officer (that includes Supt)
When Townsend was 1st Deputy and was nearing 63 the age requirement was waived for all sworn. That was so Townsend could run things as the 1st for Daley until Townsend retired. (Anyone on the job back then remembers that it was the 1st Deputy that really ran the Dept) After he retired the age requirement was back in place as 63.

John Townsend may have run this department de facto, but he was not superintendent. We are talking about the job title of superintendent here. And, yes, we all know enforcement of the age requirement was suspended for Townsend, and therefore for all the sworn officers on the department.

Once again, there is NO age requirement for SUPERINTENDENT. And Emanuel is likely to prove that to you shortly.

...Now he's going to come here and "consult" on how to lower our crime and build better relations between law enforcement and the black community? Hmmm, and all for the MEASLY sum of $350.00 an hour, $2800.00 on just a regular 8 hour day? Almost $14,000.00 for a 5 day week, over $600,000.00 a year!? No wonder we have to listen to that moron Emanuel continually bitch the city is in financial trouble and cant pay pensions or health care BUT they have the money for bullshit like this!?!?!?

Rahm will spend ALL our tax monies to prove he's really-really doing everything he can to appease the angry masses.

Hey, shit for brains. It has been explained about 5 times. You must have been in the remedial reading class on O'Brien Street. Look around. The super can be a civilian and there is no upper age limit for a civilian employee.

Also, the age requirement was never waived. The ordinance was allowed to expire and the mandatory retirement age was not renewed in law until after Townsend retired from CPD. He was then hired as a civilian boss at the city's Department of Aviation.

Give me Ramsey or the Sheriff in Milwaukee, either one would lift morale, and do something about this horrific crime surge.They wouldn't bow to the media, nor be the mayors lackee

1/24/2016 06:12:00 PM

Sheriff David Clarke would be far superior as our Superintendent than "Rahmsey".

It's just a shame, how the City has pissed away the few good, talented people they've had here.

To those saying DC has alot of crime...DC of 2016 is relatively safe,the population is 50-50 now. Metro Police is very proactive and have an advantage with a Mayor and citizens that back them. When the police shoot somewhere here, you do not hear all the police haters ranting against them. Quite the contrary, the usual comment is "well, they shouldn't have done what they did or the police wouldn't have shot them" this comes from the black citizens here. Left Chicago 5 years ago and other than the food, haven't missed a thing. On a footnote,spent 4th of July in Philly and it was awesome, over a million people and EVERYONE was pleasant having a great time.

Dr Cedric Alexander, Law Enforcement Analyst from CNN? OMG! He would be a great candidate for Chi-town's Police Superintendent! We need somebody just like him, here in Chi-Town. Let's hope his name has been submitted for Chicago's sake.

Make Ramsey the Sup, the black gold stars we have now are useless merit hacks with a racial agenda. They are a couple exceptions, but those guys would never be considered. Hey, there hasn't been an Asian sup yet when is it their turn.
