What We Deal With II

Just got this in an e-mail:


This is an actual call, taken by OEMC and dispatched to a district unit - snatches "mom's" $400 phone, refuses to go to school, demanding the latest shoes - any one of these things would have gotten us our asses handed to us years ago...and god forbid the police actually showed up at the door, because then we'd be up for two ass-whippings, maybe three.

But these calls are taken, logged and dispatched every single day in parts of town, making police play social worker to a problem that has been sixteen years in the making....more if you count "mom." This also detracts from chasing, stopping, investigating actual crimes....like the nearly 100 shootings in 2016 so far.

We're going to start a little feature here on SCC - we want pictures of the PDT screens of the stupidest, craziest, lamest calls the readers have been dispatched to. Just photograph the narrative portion. Leave off caller info and stuff like that so we don't have to crop it. Leave off the Event Number and other District identifiers to mess with 35th Street. We'll post the good ones and let others see the dumb stuff we're sent to solve.

Speaking of what we deal with, did anyone see the copper from Philadelphia who was ambushed by an isis-believer? Bad guy shot about a dozen times, actually shoved the gun into the car, and struck the copper several times. The copper was able to return fire and hit the shithead three times. Stay safe out there, people. Speedy recovery to that Philadelphia officer too.

I was in the middle of a debate about the Chicago Police over New Years with a 20 yr. old kid who believes the hype about what's going on with the CPD solely based upon what has been seen and heard in the media. I calmly tried to explain and reason with him, it was pointless. I think this is a great idea, people just don't get it.

This is nuts. I was born in 1952. Neither I, nor anyone I knew, would ever consider taking something away from our mother or father. None of us ever demanded anything, and it wasn't the threat of punishment that prevented such behavior, it just wasn't done. And I will add that I grew up with some genuinely tough families in my neighborhood.

Calling the police to control a child? Again, it just didn't happen. We, the children of our generation, grew up admiring the police. They were superheros, and could always be counted on to do the right thing.

Now, not wanting to go to school, that happened on a regular basis. We went anyway.

Yep, I can attest that that really happened. I heard it go out over the air a couple days ago in the morning.

The shocking thing about it was that it Wasn't shocking. Just more of the typical bullshit you coppers have to put up with on a daily basis playing goddamn Social Worker / Father / Husband / Mommy / Priest, etc. etc. -- everything BUT Police Officer.

I often wonder how Chicago's TAXPAYERS would react if they knew about that type of bullshit you have to put up with instead of doing actual Police Work like you were hired to do. I have a hunch that they wouldn't be exactly pleased -- to say the least (lol) -- and that it'd be it for Tiny Dancer and he'd have to flee town under the cover of darkness. Especially now.

And it couldn't happen to a more deserving asshole.

It's too bad we don't have any actual Reporters left in Chicago with guts who would expose this WASTE of Police resources. One of those 'journalist' mopes has to be listening to the online police scanner.

ps: not that helping citizens in need should be off limits but dammit to hell there's a point where you cross into the ridiculous.

Sounds like a parenting issue. People can disagree and disagree loudly - no battery has occurred. The (U) on the screen means (UNKNOWN) for weapons, and you are allowed to have guns in your house...or don't you know the law? Heck you can have bats and knives, too. The phone isn't stolen or damaged, mom knows exactly where it is at. Sounds exactly like a code - 1-Adam, not a legit Domestic.

++++++++++++

True enough but that only could be determined by an investigation which could result in a different outcome than 1-Adam. How do you know what is happening by reading a computer screen. A battery does not have to occur for an incident to be a domestic disturbance. Exactly unknown weapons, does that definitely mean there are none. Guns, bats and knives kill people. Domestics disputes lead to violent outcomes. Bad parenting results in bad kids. Perhaps a bit of police investigation may be warranted here. It is what you are paid to do.......

This is an urban myth. No one is getting free smartphones. An Obamaphone is a little thing, has a value of about $5.00 retail. More for poor older people so they are not completely cut off, can call for help if they fall in the bathroom or something. You are allowed something like 150-250 minutes per month. You can get low-income "Lifeline" service on either a wireline or a cell phone, but not both at once.

If you call this supervisor to the scene, you'll be told to handle the job yourself. Then, I'd come to the scene once you figured out how to handle that difficult scenario with the proper code, and I'd suggest you bring mommy to work with you tomorrow. If you think the answer to all your problems is to put it all on the Sgt, you are sorely mistaken. Don't waste our time and make yourself look like the dumbass you are by calling for a supervisor every time you get a job you don't like. Any supervisor that would actually show up when called to something like that, without questioning you first as to why they're needed, is a fucking moron. If you can't come up with a reason for needing a supervisor, it's probably best not to call for one. If you want to call for a supervisor just to play games, be aware that the supervisor holds better cards than you, so you're not winning that game. Do your job or find another. Idiot.

To the guy trying to reason with the 20yr old kid.

A 20yr old is worse than a teenager, they think they are an adult yet still in college and jobless.

They are saturated with bs from liberal professors who will actually lower the grade based on their opinion and not the fact that they can back up an argument with facts. If they want to be popular or get laid, they have to at least play along with the liberal agenda. They think the media can't lie. They have the attention span of a gnat and can't even pick up the obvious discrepancies that the media portrays daily.

More than likely that same kid in ten years will have lightened his tone, having had a job and seen how much it was taxed, see disadvantaged others be promoted ahead of him, had his house or car broken into etc etc etc. Experience is the best teacher.

Domestic disturbance with a truant involved and possible theft over. Weapons on the premise, possibly illegal. Sounds like an issue that might deserve some police attention. Might even fall under what you are paid to do, serve and protect.


It's not a police matter, it's an issue the parent needs to handle. It's not our job to raise or discipline other people's children. The calls of tell my 10 year old to go to bed, tell my 13 year old they have to do their homework, etc., are ridiculous and not police issues. It's all part of the problem where people have become so dependent on the government for everything, they're incapable of making a decision without the government's input and that includes how to their kids.

This should provide some "prima facie" evidence of the insanity that you good women&men must deal with. Moprah can not twist it it to her anti police philosophy when it was spewn by caller.
One point - however - if you have an I Foam disable the GPS mode in order to keep the IAD rats from an "in attention to duty" allegation. Remember the ongoing fiasco with Zak Emmanuel's robbery case report.

I'm sorry.

I had an unpleasant conversation with a neighbor one night -- a conversation, no raising my voice, no foul language -- he just didn't like what I had to say. An hour or two later police are ringing my doorbell, not in a bad part of town. I don't know what he said on his call. It was ridiculous, and the officers promptly left.

Clearly not a cop. Probably from Loevy and Loevy hoping for the stop receipts to come in and start trying to win the lottery. If by chance you are a cop and this is how you think this call should be handled...quit.

I am a cop and this is how I think. It is why I respond, conduct and investigation and then make a determination as to how to proceed. It is also why the call is dispatched so a determination can be made about a call with a potential to escalate into violence.
Don't respond, respond late, or fail to investigate properly and someone gets killed or seriously injured, then see what Loevy and Lovey does.

Don't do anything. Call Supervisor to scene. Recommend seeing local Alderman or Reverend.

-----------------

Never, ever, call for a supervisor for anything that does not require a notification required by general orders. Nothing good has ever come from calling a supervisor to a scene. Be the police and do what you are paid to do. Make a decision and move on to the next call. You will never regret this advise.

Its a domestic disturbance, its a police matter, its part of your job. Its not a perfect world, if it was your profession would be non existent. Handle the job as a professional and move on to the next assignment. Any domestic disturbance has the potential for violence or death. People have been killed during domestics for such "non police" matters as refusing to do housework, eating my skittles, drinking my vodka and taking the last turkey leg...

Changed a light bulb for an elderly woman once, she couldn't reach it. So many quiet, "invisible" people are all alone and need help sometimes and don't know what to do. It's OK, wish I could have done more.

Hate to let the big secret out and spoil coppers' bad reputation, but a little love gets passed around out there too. Got to give some to get some.

Not the original poster or the second, but totally agree with the argument that people are becoming too dependent on government for everything. This is more an urban issue, as people who live in rural areas are more self-reliant and industrious out of pure necessity. Those who live in inner-city environments, especially the "minority communities" have been allowed to abuse emergency services that were never meant for frivolous, self-initiated, unnecessary dramatics that occur only because of someone's willful neglect, ignorance, or pure irresponsibility. First responders are not personal valets, taxis, referees, collection agents, delivery services, punching bags, or therapists, but this is exactly what they have been become. Yes, there are those situations where the little old lady down the street needs some help which may fall outside the category of what we consider an emergency call, but those situations are few and far, and we are happy to help and give extra effort in those instances. You dictate that every domestic disturbance is a police matter because of the potential for violence. ANY disagreement or conflict has the potential for violence and how people handle these situations is their responsibility. Being responsible is an overwhelming and frightening concept for many of the population, which is why they readily cast it off on everyone else, especially the police.

Are all people responsible? Some people work it out, some people kill or hurt each other, some people call the police for help. If there is the potential for conflict or violence in any situation and the police are called they should respond. You dictate-- Being responsible is an overwhelming and frightening concept for many of the population, which is why they readily cast it off on everyone else, especially the police. That is why police are necessary, people are not responsible. It keeps you employed. You, as a responsible person respond to a call and hopefully conduct yourself in a responsible manner.

CPD, welcome to my world. Now you know what CPS teachers go through on a daily basis. Teachers are the parents, social workers, counselors, psychiatrists, etc. Often parents turn to teachers and ask for our help in getting children to obey at HOME, forget school. The madness has spilled over to the police department now… I wonder where it will contaminate next?

Correct, all people are not responsible. However, whether a person fails their obligation by choice or ignorance does not relieve them from it. People drag police into their personal drama because they do not feel like getting their hands dirty, i.e. dragging the crazy relative to the hospital for psych evaluation, administering some education on proper manners and respect to junior when he thinks he can run the house, etc. But when crazy relative or junior turns on the police and gets hurt or killed because he/she is out of control during an encounter with police, who is responsible? You already know what the response is from the "family" or "community". Sorry, but "scapegoat" is not in the job description. Making sure others are held responsible for their actions is our job, not taking responsibility for others' actions/inactions. Enforcing laws and investigating crime keeps us employed, not ghetto drama.

According to some responses, the police are responsible for everything under the sun. A 7 year kid not going to bed or a 13 year old not listening to a parent isn't a domestic dispute. Okay, let's handle everything under the sun. While we're doing that, the woman getting raped, the guy getting robbed and someone in a real domestic dispute can just wait longer because of the backlog created by all the bs.

Exactly and where are all these law breakers and non responsible people at, the so called ghetto. The neighborhood that has been turned into the so called ghetto because of non responsible people. it is were the most police are at and needed. Ghetto drama of various kinds does keep you employed.
