The Three Future Fall Guys/Gals

  • Two outsiders and a high-ranking veteran of the Chicago Police Department were announced Thursday as finalists for the city's next police superintendent.

    In making the announcement, Lori Lightfoot, head of the Chicago Police Board, called it a historic moment for the Police Department, saying, "Things have to change from the inside out."

    Two African-American men and a white woman were selected. They are:

    •Cedric Alexander, the public safety director of DeKalb County in Georgia who has a doctorate in clinical psychology and has 39 years in law enforcement, including as police chief in Rochester, N.Y.

    •Anne Kirkpatrick, who was police chief in Spokane, Wash., for six years, holds a law degree and is an instructor at the FBI Leadership Academy.

    •Chicago Deputy Police Superintendent Eugene Williams, who has 36 years with Chicago police, 15 years on the command staff, including his current position as head of the Bureau of Support Services, which oversees the department's administrative activities.
Let us be among the first to welcome Supernintendo Gene Williams to the post. Of course, he'll be mandatory retirement age later this year, but will retain the spot as civilian due to his close ties to various political and religious based organizations.

Emanuel can choose to start the process again and reject these candidates.
Seems the rank and file is pretty disappointed David Clarke applied, yet wasn't chosen.

So they threw in a white person to make it look legit. Don't know much about Cedric, but be sounds like a career house mouse. As far as Gene, he is a giant pile of steaming racist shit. If he gets it 35 th St will look like the west side, I mean more than it does already. Merit promotions will be affirmative action. Don't turn your back on this guy if you aren't a member of noble. When he was a commander he responded to shooting I was involved in. When he got there he put his arm around my shoukder, walked me away from everyone and said"now officer, if what you said happened didn't happen you can tell me now.". It took me a second to realize that this POS was trying to jackpot me. This is the guy who was chosen as a finalist, he will fit in perfectly with the current black rhetoric.

There's no restriction on the civilian supe's age. If not already prohibited, Williams could be contracted in such a way as to restrict him from collecting his pension while being paid as civilian supe.

Of course, Rahm can tell the board to pound sand and give him three new names, too.

I'm not a cop, but I have worked in the Public Safety world for more than a few decades. Gene Williams is a winner - always has been - and while he's not going to be able to fix all of the Department's internal issues, his appointment will go a long way in boosting the morale of the street cops who interact most with the city's general population. It's clear that he has some common-sense strategies to address how CPD resources are deployed within the city's diverse neighborhoods, and given the chance, he can make a difference. There's no doubt that he has detractors who believe he's too close to the Ministers, but he also has nearly four decades on the job, and should be given the benefit of the doubt...

OT --

From farther down the blog --

"And now fuckwinkle wants the legal authority to create a Police force under the County Homeland security banner. To respond to emergency situations in the county. Remember county trumps city jurisdiction. Just give it thought to what she's up to."

3/17/2016 11:02:00 AM

Remember -- Ferguson rules today. Give plenty of "room to destroy." Hands off, stand down, no armored vehicles, no badges, no helmets, no gloves, no OC -- it looks "intimidating" and "overmilitarized" to people who are looting pharmacies, burning brand-new senior citizen centers, etc.

...and there's a new word too.

NYPD's firearms and tactics guide -- "Because drawing the firearm is so PROVOCATIVE and alarming, it should be done only under circumstances in which officers reasonably believe that they may soon have to use deadly force to defend themselves or others against lethal assault."

"Provocative."

As one POS shouted out, "You gon' incur my wrath!" County will hand out purple drank and happy meals to avoid this at all costs.

No money to adequately man CPD, "world's busiest airport" with unarmed officers -- but we'll create another police force. I can't wait to see the kind of people she'll collect.

He is exactly what Chicago needs. (Well, if you won't take on Sheriff Arpiao as a candidate.)

Clarke would do well and I think rank-and-file police would respect him. And, I think the respect would be a two-way street.

As usual, I think Chicago and its "selection team" blew it. When this candidate blows up in Rahm's face, I wonder what Rahm has left?

This is the department that was formly under the command of masters, masters, masters who has moved onto greener pastures and is now headed by downtown Ernie brown.

Look at the video look at the case and tell me you would not of used same tactics or more to be sure you and your partner were going home from that rough tour same shape you started it in!

TIME-OUT: Gene Williams? Who is currently being investigated by the IG's office for the cheating scandal. Gene Williams - that through FIOA was confirmed had a copy of the examination. What an oxymoron using "Gene Williams" with "restoring public trust" - these terms contradictory one an another. So, it's ok to be dishonest on some issues, but no others? That is why this Department struggles. Everyone received an email regarding the FIOA request for complimentary histories from Captains, Lieutenants and Sergeants - this request was made by the Sergeants Association. There is an investigation.

In Atlanta, school officials were indicted and subsequently convicted for a cheating scandal. Go to prison and lose your pension. A criminal defense or plaintiffs attorney should subpoena the new Lieutenants, especially after they approve a TRR (use of force issue) or Search Warrant (two hot issues) and asked whether they were dishonest as a police officer (direct questions center around examination),get them to answer under oath. Subpoena the exempts who administered the test - all under oath. At the very least, they will have committed a Rule 14 violation, but worst, they are all shot as witnesses for the rest of their careers - everything they approval is tarnished.

The city/police department does not need another cover: Its time for Gene Williams to retire and move on quietly.

Welcome to our world,Chicago P.D.. Certain police chief's/administrator's/manager's come and go around here,on a routine basis. No surprise to learn that DeKalb does not corner the market on *professional incompetence*,feather nesting,or padding resumes. This will be just another example of *updating* a newer version,of a new boss/old boss/same boss,for your department. But,with all due respect,this profession stopped being a career profession,for LEO administrator's,many,many,years ago. It seems that all to often,the legit administrators/chiefs are sacrificed on the political altars,then the frantic search is on for a more malleable *go along to get along* candidate. It's the same old saw,*don't fix the problem,place the blame*! They have mostly become gypsy employee's at best. It's uncanningly similar to the inefficient,ineffective,Marta bus system here. When one leaves,another *one* will come along after while,if it does not break down enroute,or if it is even capable of leaving the yard,under it's own power. To our potentially,unfortunate brother and sister officers at C.P.D.,standby to standby! A sh^t storm could possibly be headed your way. You all have our empathy,and sincere regrets,that your overwhelmed,unappreciated department has to endure this potential upcoming administration change,involving *our*applicant. This will be just one more example of *the empty uniform syndrome*,or as I like to call it,*THE MORE RANK THAN ABILITY SYNDROME*. Try to gear up,hunker down,and hang on. This department has managed to survive this current administration,so far. The old oceanic navigational charts have this inscription on their borders,*Beware.Here be the dragons.All ye who enter are lost*. My best advise is to prepare to don your armor for battle. Hopefully,your potential dragon will be a carbon copy of *our* poser dragon. A lot of wind,a lot of noise,a lot of confusion,a lot of threatening/posturing,but thankfully,no fire,no heat. More of a major annoyance,at best. Unfortunately,there will sadly be a wake of administrative destruction,low morale.low pay,and high turnover,left in it's wake. Our hopeful good riddance,will only result in your less than pleasant acceptance. I could say,*better you than us*,but I would not wish this on my worst enemy,much less another department. Pray for a better candidate on your horizon.

We all know Kim Foxx was raised in Cabrini Green. Has the media bothered to ask her if she has felons and/or gang members in her family?
Do members of her family swear allegiance to one particular gang? People just want to root for the underdog and ignore the fact that she hasn't put all her demons behind her.

There are at least two issues that Gene Williams should be required to explain before he is even considered for the top spot, as follows:
1. The issue of "double-dipping," wherein sworn members are allowed to retire for pension purposes and yet they are rehired immediately as civilians, collecting both a pension and a generous salary, and effectively doubling their incomes. CBS 2 and the Better Government Association revealed that most of these re-hires are in Williams Bureau of Administration, with two members in his very own administrative office.
2. In his role as a Senior Subject Matter Expert for the Lieutenant's Promotional Exam, he had access to test materials, and he allegedly sponsored a study group for members of the NOBLE organization. It has been further alleged that many of these study group members scored phenomenally high on the exam, and yet these same members were previously promoted to sergeant (and therefore eligible to take the lieutenant's exam) through the merit process. How is it that these members had to rely on merit promotions to sergeant due to poor test scores, and yet they all became testing "geniuses" when it came to the lieutenant's exam?
These are some serious allegations that question his very honesty and integrity as a police administrator. What say you, Gene?

I know none of the candidates. However, Williams appears to be the reasonable candidate. He has leadership experience in the CPD, and is wired to the religious community. Outsiders coming in do not understand demographic, departmental or religious dynamics of the City. I understand the individual from Atlanta is the leading candidate, however if the Mayor selects him it would be a great mistake.

I am a M/2 in a Northside district to which I bid. Appointing individuals outside the CPD has proven to be failures the last two times. Give Williams a chance. It may help to restore confidence in the troops. I understand Alexander is the front runner with Mayor Rahn.

Mr. Mayor, carefully consider your decision, because if you pick an outsider, it may further lead to the demise of the CPD. Also, if an outsider is picked what justification does that potential selection give exempts that maybe one day they take the helm. Thanks.

Guys and gals,

This is my first post on the blog.

I spoke to Christopher Pfannkuche today. Pronounced Phon-cook
He is a gentleman and highly qualified and needs our help!

www.votechristopher.com

He told me that he has contacted the FOP on numerous occasions dating back to November, to be interviewed and is seeking the FLOPS endorsement. With NEGATIVE results.

The FOP has interviewed all 3 Democratic candidates.
Christopher has saved all his email requests and phone records without response.
Christopher has spoken with Dean Angelo in person.

How can anyone spend 31 years at the Cook County State's Attorney office, if justice was not your motivation.

He told me personally that we are headed down a dark road and he is our light.
He works with numerous Law Enforcement agencies and was currently at a Law enforcement event, when he personally took my call and spoke with me for 45 minutes.

He is friends with Terry Hake the ASA who became an FBI agent and exposed corruption in the State's Attorney office during Operation Greylord.

I emailed the Trump Campaign to donate to his campaign.
Please say this guys name everyday at work and on the blog.
Vote for him, tell everyone you know to vote for him.
Keep sending emails to the Trump campaign to donate to him.

Contact the FOP and tell them CHRISTOPHER is who WE endorse. WE are the FOP.
Not Dean Angelo. After the conversation I had with Christopher, Deano is definitely NOT for the rank and file, and is in the pocket of Chicago's dirty deed doers.

If these anarchists can assemble and unseat this office, the decent people can certainly rally and put in a qualified person.

He needs our help, he needs volunteers, he needs money. Call him directly he will give you his time. 312 767-9740
Sign up to his campaign. If we stand by we will certainly suffer.

This guy is qualified beyond this office.

But what do I know, if I had these qualifications I'd probably just get stuck working 1011 on afternoons.

Say his name everyday. PFANNKUCHE

He said you could call him Chris Phann as well, as the one copper stated.
I called him Fa-new-chee, I thought he might be Italian.

The double dipping and re-hiring sworn as civilian after they retire has been going on for decades. One example is Marv Shear. Gene Williams did not re-hire these employees. Look at HR and the Sups office for that.

My partner and I stay fetal. We have not done not even one ISR. Just be nice to people fellow Officers, talk to people with respect and just give the victim a report. Don't make any traffic stops, don't make and street stops and don't ever do a ISR unless you have to. This is what they want, this is what the Citizens want. The Citizens don't care about homicides or shootings or if numbers are up or down. Citizens are just interested and only care about friendly Officers, not being stopped or searched and not receiving tickets. Just go to work and park the car, if you don't know how to sit still or if you have a bug up your ass then at your own dangerous risk and remember no Boss is goanna save your ass from the ACLU. The ACLU has made your job so easy its like free money absolutely nothing proactive is expected out of you, so go to work Spring is almost here roll down the window, enjoy the weather, and just relax until you get called for a job. Personally I don't move the car unless its a 10-1 or we have to go to a job. God gave you a brain its about time you use it those of you who are still doing proactive police need to be very careful. Oh and last time I checked all Officers get paid the same weather you are the fetal Officer or the aggressive proactive Officer. Oh wait I forgot there is one difference the fetal Officer basically doesn't have any where near the chance of a aggressive officer getting sued or fired. If we got paid a bonus for arrests or tickets then I can kind of understand why a Officer would want to risk his job, but since there is no bonus for anything you do its common sense that a moron would understand fetal is the way to go

I'm not a cop, but I have worked in the Public Safety world for more than a few decades. Gene Williams is a winner - always has been - and while he's not going to be able to fix all of the Department's internal issues, his appointment will go a long way in boosting the morale of the street cops who interact most with the city's general population. It's clear that he has some common-sense strategies to address how CPD resources are deployed within the city's diverse neighborhoods, and given the chance, he can make a difference. There's no doubt that he has detractors who believe he's too close to the Ministers, but he also has nearly four decades on the job, and should be given the benefit of the doubt...

I think folks are forgetting that the old bosses won't touch him because they know him. Hillard dumped him and banished him from Narcotics to 015 for years. Cline won't speak to him and the others deal with him because CPD does not have much left to choose from. He has also been a part of this BS system for almost 40 years. What do you possibly expect to change. This city needs younger blood, not an old dog doing the same tricks. He was also dumped as Chief of Patrol to an Administrative spot for a reason. He was also a Chief when the Laquan McDonald shooting took place as were all of the Chiefs, Chief Gulliford, Chief Escalante, Chief Riccio, Chief Treacy, Chief Roussell and guess who, Chief Williams. They met regarding the video the very next day at the EMM. If McCarthy had to go, so should the Chiefs.

Chief Williams has been a part of more women scandals than downtown Ernie Brown and clearly gave the alleged confidential Lieutenant's test not only to that study crew, but to his old Secretary YB who is now in the Court Section after falsifying medical documents for years claiming she could not work the street. Look at her number. 1st class too.

Mayor Daley hates him as well as the real old bosses from back in the day. Its a reason they never made him before. Lori Lightfoot is also his girl. FOIA his blackberry records and see all of the people he has been talking to to get that vote, including the head of the selection committee. How transparent is that?

Do your homework City of Chicago and CPD. He is in bed with too many politicians, ministers and heavies nationwide. He would also sell his son and family for this shot. Same old soup, boiling over. I'd rather you all get an outsider than this POS.

For others, I like Sheriff David Clarke but he wouldn't last here. There is no way he would be able to keep the aldermen and preachers happy. Yes the officers might like him but who else. Then there is that thing of learning Chicago and how we do things...many people don't get past that curve.

How does someone who has made so many (purposeful) wrongs be allowed to continue to lead investigators in daily operations. So clouted he can't be dumped no matter what he has done. And people/citizens wonder why this department is compared to the movie "the departed " look at all of the two faced clowns in charge. Why is he not put in a non sensitive position to supervise paperclips.....at best......not lead homicide investigations.

I spoke to one of the FOP officers the other day at the meeting on the side;

The Inspector General has opened an investigation into the Lieutenant's Exam cheating scandal.

Gene Williams is a main target of the investigation.

It would be JUST GREAT if he is made Superintendent and then is indicted on charges.

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

HEY MEDIA !!

The above is true... Look into it !!

Also he gets former 1st Deputy Wysinger's wife (LT. M. HALL) an unmarked take home SUV even though she is only in patrol.. The IG should also investigate that WASTE of taxpayer's dollars.

Great job to all on the lake at 79th St. Man in the water call, was rescued. Fortunately was wearing a life jacket which may have made the difference.

Escalante wasn't considered because he should be fired with McCarthy. He is all over the Laquan McDonald shooting. His signature as well. He is also all over the Dante Servin case and had him working directly in his office after being stripped in lieu of going to 376. That was completely unheard of and unprecedented. Chief Riccio should be fired right with him. Look at that same Servin case. Chief Eddie Johnson was on that scene also.

Lets start the new era off right and get rid of all of our baggage and start fresh.

This is my first post on the blog. I spoke to Christopher Pfannkuche today. Pronounced Phon-cook He is a gentleman (yes) and highly qualified and needs our help!

He told me that he has contacted the FOP on numerous occasions dating back to November, to be interviewed and is seeking the FLOPS endorsement. With NEGATIVE results.

The FOP has interviewed all 3 Democratic candidates. Christopher has saved all his email requests and phone records without response. Christopher has spoken with Dean Angelo in person.

How can anyone spend 31 years at the Cook County State's Attorney office, if justice was not your motivation. He told me personally that we are headed down a dark road and he is our light.(And how about loafs and fishes?)

He works with numerous Law Enforcement agencies and was currently at a Law enforcement event, when he personally took my call and spoke with me for 45 minutes.

I emailed the Trump Campaign to donate to his campaign. (do you live in Canaryville?) Please say this guys name everyday at work and on the blog. Vote for him, tell everyone you know to vote for him. Keep sending emails to the Trump campaign to donate to him.

3/18/2016 01:59:00 AM

????????????????

Well I did a little more homework than you did.

FOP did not interview the three democratic candidates. They would not let Alvarez in the building. Foxx never asked for the endorsement. Moore did come in and was argumentative the first minute. Who did see bring in as her driver? Gator Bradley! I wish I was there to tell her what I thought of that. Pfannkuche was not interview because he was running unopposed.

Some questions:

How long has he been a Republican? Can’t get a straight answer from him.

Has the republican party given him any financial support? NO

Is he been endorsed by the Republican party! NO not yet and the clocks ticking.

Has he ever prosecuted a police officer? YES that's right folks

Has he ever dropped battery to police officer charges against an offender? Yes

You may vote for him but your going to do it holding your nose. He has zero chance of being elected. The alternative sucks worse much worse.

Cerone along with Flaherty and a few others at Area North suffer from a condition known as Walshiatis. The symptoms include: delusions of grandeur, self aggrandizing arrogant and pompus behavior common among persons with narcissistic personality disorder. People with this ailment always stick together so they can stroke each others ego by telling each other and others how great they are therefore perpetuate this facade they have carefully manufactured over the years. They also make sure they gang up and take down any person they perceive to be a threat to that image. Walsh was a master of that. The reality is, as a some posts have alluded to, they are incompetent hacks who couldn't investigate themselves out of a one way street, hanging on to the coat tails of the 2-3 decent detectives on their teams. The only hope is that the new VC LT at area north, who seams like a great boss, sees though the very thick BS these guys lay out and launches them. He at least brought in one great Sgt so far.

Whichever of these three stooges Rahm chooses I'm thinking Rahm insists on Escalante going back to his old spot of First Deputy.
Especially if Rahm chooses another outsider he'll want someone competent and intimate with CPD as First Deputy.
We'll go back to the old ways of the Supe being a figure head ( to appease the "community"),while the First Deputy handles the day to day operations of the department and for all intents and purposes actually runs the department.

Just read an article where Gene Williams states the department has never disciplined an officer for improper use of video and audio equipment as in car cameras etc. Guess what Chicago, he has been the Chief of Administration for over three years and his Bureau oversees all of the referenced equipment. If you had that knowledge, how come you never initiated any action. Our orders allows any department member to initiate action. You are a Chief and had knowledge. GTFOH Retire dinasor retire. Morale is already at an all time low, you will boost it lower.

Gene Williams is a winner - always has been - and while he's not going to be able to fix all of the Department's internal issues, his appointment will go a long way in boosting the morale of the street cops who interact most with the city's general population. It's clear that he has some common-sense strategies to address how CPD resources are deployed within the city's diverse neighborhoods, and given the chance, he can make a difference. There's no doubt that he has detractors who believe he's too close to the Ministers, but he also has nearly four decades on the job, and should be given the benefit of the doubt...

You should know by now that the media and the public could care less about these type of goings on. They don't care about corrupt promotions or appointments or assignments. The only time I recall that the media even showed a slight interest was in 1988 when the BGA and NBC ran a series of investigative reporting shows highlighting the corrupt 1987 lieutenants and sergeants examination. But, no one paid attention to their discoveries although the questions they raised were damning . No one has ever mentioned that the Daley clan made the police department their patronage plaything which directly contributed to the loss of morale and the corruption. It has been going on for decades and still goes on today. I worked briefly in the HQ building and take home cars were controlled right out of the 1st deputy office. Many connected civilian employees managed to get a take home car. Why, back then, the wife of the lieutenants and the commander at Intelligence Division had take home cars and they were not even on the job. Nothing is legit, it never has been and probably never will be, not in this town, not in this county or this state. The a-hole alderman want transparency and accountability for everyone but themselves. And, strangely enough, no on holds them accountable and there is no outcry for their reform. These liberal bastards on the left have selective memories and selective outrage. The fish rots from the head. Even Obama got into the act by endorsing a state legislature that would support the corrupt Madigan regime.

About 8 weeks ago a trustee came out to roll call and said tell the Justice department all the shit that you would have fixed in a perfect world. It’s a one time shot. Here’s some of what he suggested:

The City downgrade authorized manpower by 1500.
We are very short handed in patrol as are the dic’s.
Too many specialized units created w/o hiring extra people.
The radios suck.
The batteries suck.
The cameras don’t work.
The PDT does not work.
The cars suck.
Promotions are a joke.
Meritorious now is stickily a clout thing.
In-service training is non-existent.
The ISR has killed proactive police work.
By giving away free money in many of the frivolous law suits the city has created a monster they can not get back in the bottle.
Agg-Batt to a P.O. charges are constantly dropped.
The City and the ASA refuses to follow up on Sworn Affidavit violations.

Print the list and feel free to add to it. It’s a one time shot at talking to someone who can impose changes on the city!

There's no doubt that he has detractors who believe he's too close to the Ministers, but he also has nearly four decades on the job, and should be given the benefit of the doubt...

Holy Name Cathedral has a toilet in the sacristy that's been on the job and seamlessly interacting with minsters and the public at large for more than sixty years. Hiring that shitcan to be the next CPD Superintendent would be a better idea.

Made sergeant in August 1998 and landed in 015. A few months later Gene Williams made lieutenant and landed on third watch. One dark day he told me I stick my neck out too much for the officers on the watch.
I pray his thinking has changed.

SUCH BAD INFO, he was a Sergeant in 1990 when we first met, and furthermore I made Sergeant in 1998......does anyone check info before posting it???? NOPE

Perhaps I did not make myself clear. I made sergeant in August 1998 and was assigned to 015. Perhaps November of that year Gene came there as a lieutenant. I worked on third watch for him.

No, you were perfectly clear. The only one confused was the GW ball lick, who have is most likely a merit or secret study group Lt.
