Investigation Update

Anyone else find this ""interesting"?

The media, which has been howling for weeks/months now about how the Department is "out of control," "racist," or "fetal," and will spend hours of coverage about this, yet not a peep about how a completely corrupt examination has promoted inept, incompetent and clout-heavy people into positions they don't deserve, can't perform and essentially stole from other test takers?

Is this not Theft? Corruption? Scandal? What the media supposedly thrives on?

Don't they see that this is directly tied into their supposed findings by Rahm's Task Force? The Department leadership is rotten to the core, and only DNAInfo is keeping this thing alive:
  • City Inspector General Joseph Ferguson has notified Chicago Deputy Police Supt. Eugene Williams and two lieutenants that they are the subjects of a probe into allegations of cheating on the police lieutenants promotion exam, sources told DNAinfo.

    The city watchdog's investigation advanced this week when a Police Department employee signed his name to an official misconduct complaint alleging Williams shared privileged information in a study group about the most recent test used to promote sergeants to lieutenants, sources said.

    Police union contract rules state officers are not required to answer questions about administrative misconduct allegations made by anonymous Police Department employees.

    The whistleblower, who had been anonymous, agreed to be identified in the complaint at the urging of investigators who told him the probe would otherwise die.

    DNAinfo is not naming the officer who signed the complaint; he has asked for anonymity because he fears reprisal from the department's top brass.
We also have independent confirmation that there are three lieutenants (not two) who have been notified of the investigation along with Gene Williams. We have read here and heard other places that damning e-mails are already in the possession of the Inspector General with actual files of the test attached; that charges of Rule 14 violations are almost a certainty; that a civil action might be forthcoming due to the breach of contract involving certain Subject Matter Experts sharing confidential material; and the biggest bombshell, that this investigation may shortly turn criminal in nature due to the allegation of money changing hands.

And it's tied directly to one of Lori Lightfoot's finalists (Williams) and Rahm's hand-picked former First Deputy (Wysinger) and his hand-picked Superintendent (Johnson), along with one of the most prestigious (and connected) ethnic organizations of police.

But the mainstream media remains silent. Why?

Maybe Mr Northen can chime in on this question. Do the people that took the test have a class action suit worth anything against the guilty parties in this?

You waited how many years to out that one?? You, Media are part of the Scandal. Where is your investigative reporting while the scandal is still fresh and is continuing? Where is your journalistic integrity? Oh, that's right...you left it at the back door. You are decayed.

At the end of the day, I commend those that are following the truth, but I expect absolutely nothing to happen because the leadership of this city and department are rotten.

Maryet scored 300 last test-from her own mouth. CR pulled for EW teaching her in a private session. Then she scores #1. Johnson's girl in the session too, and EW's. All 3 score top 25. Then EJ says his girl in "all sorts of study groups," but his girl says she wasn't in any. Rahm claims sour grapes. Circumstancial evidence is overwhelming. Every sworn on the job with a brain knows what time it is, but these clowns think we stupid. Is it weird I'm less pissed off about them giving their girls the answer than I am about treating us like some gullible punk bitches? I wonder if Gene gonna give out some cheat sheets for dick's test at his cake and coffee.

If you make any type of compliant against a city supervisor, you can expect retaliation. Sometimes they do their own dirty work, but quite often there are other shills that will be dispatched.

The only way you can safely complain about a supervisor or higher up is if the City already wanted to get rid of them because they were out of favor.

I don't blame the whistleblower for wanting to remain anonymous. Their life won't be the same afterward.

Rahm, the rev'runs and the alderclowns
find this investigation "Concerning,"

That's why there's a media "black-out"
>Snicker!< on this whole sordid mess.

What's entertaining is that NOBODY
was able to say BOO about this shit
(and make it stick) when all
those pink-guys were running the
show at City Hall & CPD HQ...

Winds of discontent would blow
but City Hall and the media
quashed them.

Clouted ass-clowns, drunks, degenerates,
racists, haters, morons, scammers, thieves,
wastrels, rakes, whores, poofters, moral bankrupts,
poot-butts, bust-outs, weirdos, flakes and career hidey-holers have been
blessed with stolen promotions for many, many years...

Ask Northside (and others) about
the Fuckery of Exam-Scam and the like.

Ask the few old guys still around about
m/Fers BUYING promotions through the
Chicago Democratic Machine.

Ask those who have actually sat for
CPD promotional exams as to why their
identifying information on their test booklets had to be written in
"PENCIL," which flies in the face of the security and integrity of
the testing process?

>Erase, erase, erase.
Scribbles new name...<

A REAL subject matter expert emeritus
gave a vital clue:

"Did you ever wonder why so much of the promotional
exams are scored not on "the right answer," but the
"best answer?"

"So that City Hall can have a built in mechanism
to influence the end results."

There was one Sergeants and one Lieutenants exam
that we recall, provoked a lot of screaming from City Hall
because they were somehow scored straight and
too many legit people were in line to get promoted.

These were promptly taken down...

Everybody demographic and constituency
wants to "get our guys in."

How about the best man for the job since
the lives of so many will be affected?

The inordinate fear that some "nutron" Policeman
might get in and actually do the right thing(s).

closed the investgation. Not Sustained?

Now the IG is going to reinvestigate the matter and interview the players and the big cheese who can retire now and receive no discipline. Wow, who is covering this up?
The cheaters, the bosses giving test answers away or the IAD who dropped the entire matter?

Now they have to answer the question? Was there an unfair advantage in this
test? If yes, the promoted should be pulled back and new test administered.
Just like searching for weapons
If one person had test answers, keep looking because others have answers.

This all started under Juan Rivera, Robert Klimas, Mike Barz and Matt Brown in IAD.

All promotions should be thoroughly investigated. Expose the corruption
By creating a clout tree. FOIA all the supervisors to find out how many were merit promoted multiple times and name their sponsors and then FOIA the sponsors and on and on. Stealing a promotion for favors or other is pure corruption and has been going on for years. Nothing has ever been done about this toxic corrupt system. The only thing a person without clout can do is keep quite or be retailiated against or dumped. Hundreds of officers of all rank and file have at one time been a victim of this abuse. Sadly none have the balls to talk about why they were dumped or worse because of fear and that fear can go as far as death. When you have a brick placed on you and you are labels a rat. The whole department is a mess and terribly mismanaged. I am glad I am almost at a point in my career I can retire. I have a wealth of information but I don't want to deal with the backlash from corrupt white shirts or this corrupt mayor that won't do anything about the corruption. Why bother. Not salty just disgusted and frankly worn out. I loved this job and now I can't sand to even look at my badge. So many selfish unethical people have dystroped this city and department.

The whole test taking process in the police department is a sham. Most of the cops who take the test should not even be eligible.

I've been here many years and there are a lot of cops who have also been here for years that never go to criminal court yet get promoted. What a fucking joke.

Why? What is the common denominator? What is it that would make the media disinterested in cheating by a police superintendent only recently appointed by the Mayor? Answer:

First the media is corrupt and has come to tolerate corruption. At election time they endorse political candidates who are corrupt from Blago right down into the elections of judges.

Secondly, most of the public does not care about corruption. They expect corruption in government and government bodies. I remember a number of years ago I was expected to pay a customer back because he had put out $500 to grease the palm of a certian Alderman with the initials B.H. to make the city permit process move faster. He had no problem doing it and I lied and wrote it off as a permit fee but really it was simply a bribe. It is that old axiom "Its the Chicago Way". Many people are proud of that.

Third, look at what the newspapers have to offer in the way product; news coverage and investigative journalism. It is an expense the media does not want to invest in because there is no return. People are not buying newspapers and advertisers are not buying space either. They do not make money and their readers, those who can keep electing the same corrupt people. Look at Karen Lewis; that woman has no business leading a union of red shirted teachers but look at who they elect? Look at public candidates people support. They will support by and large Hillary for President. A woman who is under federal investigation and their response is so what? We supported Blago too. Point is made, we are a corrupt feral and fetal people.

For decades we have tolerated the corruption of promotional exams, as well; as Rahm would put it: "Chicago Values". Yet this is not something that should be brushed off with a wink. Whomever the Whistle Blower is on this, he/she has some big balls and is in fact a "Hero". Many of us will spend a career and ultimately retirement having received significantly less income and pension, because some POS who kissed some politician's or "Revend's" ass, has our stripes or bars.Citizens receive a lesser quality of service and protection, because the decision maker is a coward or hack. The quality of life for our children and for us is reduced to appease the Monster that is the Corrupt Chicago Values System. Unfortunately, because everyone involved in this fiasco is Black, the Media is afraid to touch it.

The media is not going to report on any scheme which may benefit the ones they see as "deserving to lead". Actual knowledge, past performance and intelligence will have to take a backseat.
Look at the ones benefiting from the scandal. What do they have that the actual "qualified" candidates don't have?
I suspect this will explain much, if not all, of the media's lack of interest.

Whoa...hold on here. This investigation is Sexist and..(get ready).. Racist! The complaint is **obviously** based on the prejudice of the so-called *whistle blower* who couldn't measure up to these fine minority female police officers.

Some fat doughnut eating white sergeant who failed the test was jealous that three minority females not only did better than he did, but one was also the highest scorer figures he'll get even by lodging this phony 'cheating' complaint.

This complaint itself is proof -- Proof I say!! -- that racists are everywhere, and investigation proves that *institutional racism* still exists in the Chicago Police Department. All as *proven* by the Blue Ribbon Committee report recently published.

Or not.

And it really shows that no matter who investigates what, CLOUT is still number one in Chicago. As Paddy Bauler once said:'This city ain't ready for reform'. and that, kiddies, is still true today. And probably always will be.

Does anyone see the elephant in the room?

This incident started back in 2014 with current IAD members and a study group within IAD.
When this allegation started it was handled by IAD. Who found nothing and
closed the investgation. Not Sustained?

Now the IG is going to reinvestigate the matter and interview the players and the big cheese who can retire now and receive no discipline. Wow, who is covering this up?
The cheaters, the bosses giving test answers away or the IAD who dropped the entire matter?

Now they have to answer the question? Was there an unfair advantage in this
test? If yes, the promoted should be pulled back and new test administered.
Just like searching for weapons
If one person had test answers, keep looking because others have answers.

This all started under Juan Rivera, Robert Klimas, Mike Barz and Matt Brown in IAD.

The liberal media does not have the balls to report that the blue line offenders that beat up an innocent white college girl over an I-phone where black, so why would they have anything to say about a not so NOBLE Lie-utenants exam where the answers where given to a chosen few members of a not so NOBLE organization. To much backlash from their editorial bosses. Much less backlash reporting another police shooting that will be found to be justified in the end.

Can't upset the reverends, black lives matters, cheating not so NOBLE police officers. Hey mayor did you keep the Laquan McDonald shooting under wraps to insure your re-election? Still throwing the police under the bus? Why not the cheating not so NOBLE group? Paying them off with undeserved promotions? Not throwing them under the bus? Media remaining non-committal. Media so ball less when the college student gets beat up by thugs, by not identifying the race of offenders and so ball less with the not so NOBLE Lie-utenants. Yet they seem to find their nuts when reporting a police shooting or 5 year old video arrest of a convicted robbery offender fed to them by the mayors hand selected superintendent. The main stream free press does not exist anymore. They take their lead story from the mayor without question. Ball less bastards. Stay fetal.

OFF TOPIC: But why didn't our Genius Brass think of this
From POLICE MAGAZINE On-Line

"Bratton Advises New Yorkers on How to Not Get Shot by Police

Police Commissioner Bill Bratton has some simple advice for New Yorkers – if you don’t want to get shot by cops, don’t point a gun at them.

“The best way to not get shot by a New York City police officer is not carry a gun and not raise that gun toward them,” Bratton said at a news conference Monday.

His comments came in reaction to a question about George Tillman, 32, who was killed on April 17 when an NYPD sergeant and three cops fired 13 shots at him, hitting him 11 times in Queens around 1:30 a.m. Police sources said he had a gun in his waistband and pulled it out as officers chased him near the corner of 135th St. and 116th Ave. in South Ozone Park, the New York Post reports."

That includes attorneys who got into and out of law school, passed the bar exam, and ranked within the top 40 or so on a sergeants list. Hmm. So we just became stupid all of a sudden despite being in the top 5-7% on a dicks list, and sergeants list while Wysingers wife and Johnsons squeeze are #1 and #2? Sorry, it doesn't happen this way in nature. I'd love the opportunity to take this test again. That said, the list has to be taken down.

Merit started in 1988 when there was a big sergeants class of approximately 250. Sent home after one half a day because of the lack of minorities. Some agreement was made and after classes began- in walk all of these people just to get promoted.
In 1994-95 Arthur Andersen made up and gave the Lt.s test. The first class of 54 had 2 ( if I remember correctly) minority sergeants. After the hue and cry- in walk about 12 so called merit picks- funny part was that one half of them were white. From these tests, merit developed as the standard. In my opinion , it completely ruined the department. The department always had a cadre of very qualified upper echelon bosses. From that point on, I saw that consistently diminish until you have a totally dysfunctional organization. If you have trouble studying, comprehending what you read, writing and quickly deciding on what is important and what can wait, you cannot make decent decisions. I imagine now it is completely political. The political powers cannot have it both ways- either you have a political machine or you have a professional police department. There were always politics involved but 35 years ago there were commanders, deputies , etc. who thought quickly on their feet. Good luck and stay safe.

I am a white guy who has been on this job for 21 years. I do not think it is fare that people are given the answers by the subject matter experts before the test is given.

The white subject matter experts have been giving the answers to their little groups since I have been on this nasty, dispicable, cheating ass job. The only way to make the tests un-cheatable is to have an testing company prepare, administer and grade the test without any one from the department seeing the results until the grades are administered. This department is so corrupt it is insulting. These companies are paid the big bucks because they can handle preparing and administering and grading these tests. There is no reason these compainies should need a subject matter expert. Not to mention I have worked with some of the subject matter experts in the past and these people are far from being an expert at any thing except for being connected and corrupt.

Look at the scores that Kennedy, Georgas, Biggane, Hennigan, and many others were able to achieve once they worked for Maurer. They became instant test-taking geniuses! There was a PO in his office that was such a good test-taker that she scored high enough to be promoted to detective, and soon after she was promoted to sergeant. Right, Lisa? This was blatant, and Cline overlooked it because he didn't want to start an investigation involving his friend Maurer.

Getting back to Williams, there are at least four police officers, one deputy chief, an administrative manager, and a director of Facilities Management who were present in that office and who witnessed the "study group" meetings. They all sit within yards of each other, and therefore they could not have missed it. I hope the IG includes them in this investigation.

Merit started with the 1994 Lieutenants test when in the first 94 there were only 2 black males. I know I was in the first 94. Both black males made exempt within a matter of months. Most of the first merits were minority, not white, I think 12 were made, at least 4 never even bothered to take the test, but still were promoted with back seniority. One was a quota sergeant who quit the job to open his own business, but came back to make " merit lieutenant" was made a watch commander right away and then went on to make captain. The entire procedure, to include the captains promotions was influenced by politics. Now, you only need to get 40% pass score to be considered for merit promotion. When does this stop? Wives, girlfriends, driver's, secretaries, who suddenly make merit promotions, not once, but two and three times. Damn they must be good, at something? Rahm could really do something good for the rank and file by cleaning this up, but, of course, he will not give up the power.

superintendent ? That would have certainly been "unethical". Of course it looks like NF ain't going nowhere as far as exempt promotion while her partner is da boss. Why do you think the first dep Al made such a quick exit.

1stDeputy Al, a triple merit promotee. Now, here is a leader who never passed a promotion test based on written policies of his employer.He was a figure head and could never have led the CPD.

Those cheating lieutenants should be placed back into their prior rank till this investigation is finalized. This city and department is so corrupt that it's pathetic. It also discourages officer from taking exams because of all the corrupt promotional process and the same people getting merit promotions over and over. You should be entitled to one merit promotion in your career.

4/30/2016 11:36:00 AM
I don't think that this can be done. Unless things have changed, when you are promoted you resign your previous rank, that is why your seniority restarts.

im a Sgt that got a decent score, but might not be high enough to make it. I'm seriously considering a lawsuit, but wondering if I should wait till this investigation is over? Any advice? Maybe a lawsuit would force these people into depositions and we can start getting their statements on record.

You're looking advice from the blog whether you should file a lawsuit regarding cheating on the Lt. Exam. My advice to you Sarge, man up and take some initiative. I'm glad I'm not a Sgt. working besides you. My two cents is that you have a lawsuit based on ethnicity. I suggest contacting a good civil rights attorney.

As far as the person saying file FOIA requests, I've been there done that . CPD FOIA section just fails to respond. Nothin too see here kid...move along.

How does a person have a chance scoring well with the craters and merit?

What about the merit lieutenant that handled the first investigation? He was promised a promotion . He never requested the emails or video from HQ, he told them when he was coming and closed the investigation without conducting a thorough investigation on purpose

That was Sgt Brown and in return for his "cooperation" his son in-law (SL) was promoted to commander of 020. Let's not forget the Sgt Barz who initiated the whole first "investigation" was given a merit spot in exchange for HIS cooperation making this go away.

As an outsider, I think this is a BIG reason Chicago PD is being investigated by the DOJ.

The DOJ investigation might not be looking at this misconduct, but it must and should.

Why was Laquan Mc Donald video hidden for a year?
It was not a patrol officer or a sergeant that hid it. Someone up high owed the Mayor and his minions. Rahm must be re-elected, even if the city will burn after the election. But that is not corruption? That did not inflame racial tensions? The McDonald cover up did not cause mistrust of the CPD?

Why was the Vanecko murder covered up?
Didn't Koschmann deserve justice?
Or are Daley family members exempt from justice?
Who did the cover up? It was not some patrol officer.
The cover up was ordered.
People even hid the files.

This corruption is destroying the trust the people of Chicago should have in the CPD.
This MACHINE CORRUPTION is the root cause of Chicagos problems.

HEY DOJ!!!
If you want to make Chicago better, root out the corruption.
Unless your Democrat DOJ is just as corrupt as the Democrat Machine in Chicago?

I hope the Republican Trump Administration can change Chicago before it becomes another Detroit.
Because I know that the Democrat Machine will never reform itself.

Merit started in 1988 when there was a big sergeants class of approximately 250. Sent home after one half a day because of the lack of minorities. Some agreement was made and after classes began- in walk all of these people just to get promoted..."

I remember that day well, 1 November 1988 243 in that class. There were two lists, Raw Scores and Standardized, whites dropped 17% even then 13 Merit Promotions were needed.

It was a bit of pride to say I never got a Merit Promotion.

Too Late. Monday is "cake and coffee" for gene Williams last day. Once hes gone he doesnt have to answer nothing about nothing... "I have since retired, I dont recall anything you are talking about." End of story... Yes there will be an investigation, the only people who REALLY have to watch what they say when asked are the new LTs.. they can get hit with a rule 14 if they wanna play the game, however if Gene doesnt play along, which he absolutly wont then he is safe from any discipline or anything like that. It should be interesting but who knows. Let me ask a question. Is this list really worth it being thrown out over maybe 2-6 people cheating? I have no dog in this race, Im still a blue shirt but what about the guys/gals who legit studied and scored number 10? Or 20 or 50 or 75 etc? Enough to get made. Why do they get punished? What happens if they score 50, then there is a new test and something happens then they score 250? pretty crappy for them dont you think? I think that the cheaters and the clout who helped them need to be tossed from the list or even the department. Keep the list up for the legit people who did good and somehow make it right with everyone on the list who was held up from being promoted because of the clouted cheaters by giving them seniority in LT rank and back pay with a little something extra.. something. But this is chicago so I would never expect that.

I was lucky enough to have enough time and energy left to study hard for this test. I plan on being LT for 4 and a half more years and off to retirement I go. You can take the list down or whatever you want but ive been the police for 27 years. Ive heard and seen all the scandal and its all the same everytime. The last big one was with john northern and all that stuff. This is it all over again.. guess what nothing will happen. If they attempt to take this list down the current people who are waiting to get made will sue to keep the list and they will win.

However, the way the tests are now administered changed after the allegations.

My question is who is the common clout thread for these people? It has to be SOMEONE with clout. For all the crying about NOBLE, these weren't the only people who scooted up the merit tree, either. I can think of Roselle, White, Crummp, Calloway, and a few others who should have had a brilliant career in the fast food industry instead of in the upper ranks of this Department. Go figure.

I'm sorry if that ruffles feather, but it's true. I learned that the hard way years ago when talking to a pretty bright person that worked for a news agency. What seemed important to me as a cop meant nothing to the readers. I was taken aback, but understood immediately what I had just been told. It really helped me to put this job into perspective. That's why going fetal has been the best thing for this department, believe it or not. Don't get too wrapped up in this career. Do what you can to better yourself and move on.

Yes, the cheaters should be punished if it's found to be true, which looks pretty obvious but the entire test shouldn't be scrapped, just punish the wrongdoers and move on. Any further exams by this department should be completely handled from start to finish by an outside entity. I think merit is necessary but not in its current form, nobody should ever be considered that's been a bosses secretary or driver, EVER!
Also, you get 1 merit promotion your entire career, no more triple merit political hacks. I think most would be happy with a merit system that recognizes actual workers, coppers that have demonstrated their knowledge and leadership on the job, every district and unit has them, we know them, why doesn't the dept. the people who make it by score definitely have earned it and God bless them, but that by no means equates to good supervision, we all know people that score well and are booksmart, but were house mice and ended up being awful supervisors with no street knowledge. I have over 20 years on and some of the worst supervisors were those who made it by score, some of the best were merit; my point, judge the individual, there will will be good and bad in both, the bigger problems is political and religious interference, which has infiltrated this department in the worst way possible.

Seriously, are you trying to say this has not been happening for many years. This happened on every test since I got on the job and it has always been the connected white people who miraculously scored so high on the tests and this never got any press. Cline and his six buddies on the tact team happened to score so high with out any inside help, sure ok your right. Mauer and all of his inside study groups, if I remember correctly they were all white folks. You know as well as I do and every other person on this job that if you have the correct last name or you are drinking buddies with the correct people you have inside help that other people are not privy to. So stop drinking the cool-aid and face the facts this has been happening since I got on the job and using 1 example of Leroy Martin's son does not prove anything. Also, no need to call anyone names this is my opinion backed up by a few facts. Your example is 1 person and this was way before I was even on this job. Ask your guy Northern about the cheating on this job, its been happening for ever. But, I will give credit where credit is due, yes this time we finally have a few brave people that are willing to sign some paperwork to prove that cheating was done. I commend them for being brave and I hope they do not get slack from the higher ups for being the brave ones. I do hope the system finally gets changed and becomes fair for everyone, not just the connect ones.

We've pointed out every single one of them for years now, but since you're a millennial-Come-Lately and history began at the time you discovered the blog last week, then you assume we haven't ripped a hole in every one of these assholes, regardless of color? Just because they haven't given a promotional test in a decade doesn't make it our fault

Go fuck yourself, asshat. We've posted about the Cline tact team in 011, the husband/wife or brother/brother or brother/sister combos scoring exactly the same and getting promoted together at the same time, the "lightning strike" where half a dozen people from 025 make the same class, Chief Maurer's rarefied Top Three's when he was a SME putting together the tests, or even the "must be something in the water" (also known as the suck-on-this) phenomenon that affects HQ or Homan Square every time a class gets made.

The IAD Six connection is just the latest in a series of blatant corrupt practices brought to light.

Merit started with the 1994 Lieutenants test when in the first 94 there were only 2 black males. I know I was in the first 94. Both black males made exempt within a matter of months. Most of the first merits were minority, not white, I think 12 were made, at least 4 never even bothered to take the test, but still were promoted with back seniority. One was a quota sergeant who quit the job to open his own business, but came back to make " merit lieutenant" was made a watch commander right away and then went on to make captain. The entire procedure, to include the captains promotions was influenced by politics. Now, you only need to get 40% pass score to be considered for merit promotion. When does this stop? Wives, girlfriends, driver's, secretaries, who suddenly make merit promotions, not once, but two and three times. Damn they must be good, at something? Rahm could really do something good for the rank and file by cleaning this up, but, of course, he will not give up the power.

WRONG---Shortshanks attempted to promote his merit selections due to the lack of minority representation in the first 100, however, a Circuit Court judged denied the promotions stating that the merit process should have been announced before the test was given. The list came down soon afterwards and the Merit Lt's were not promoted until the 1998 Lt. List.

I'm telling you right now if I didn't cheat I would be on every blog, Facebook, and news media with my name and score and defending myself. But I hear nothing from victor, wysingers wife, johnsons wife to be (13years on job)Whatever her name is, the guy in 8 and the rest . Why? Why? We all know why! Simply disgraceful, immoral and darn right unnoble of you.

I so agree. If I was innocent of something I was being accused of, I would be crazy nuts angry and putting myself out there defending myself. Especially when I put my own sweat and time into studying every hour I could on my own time at home for months. Don't accuse me of something I didn't do. Especially lying and cheating on a promotional exam. I would be furious and publicly outraged.

But they are not. Why? Because they did it. They are guilty of lying and cheating on a promotional exam. They are in panic mode. They are too afraid to speak, because one lie leads to another. Especially when its a group lie. The super and his girlfriend already fkd up when speaking to the press. So now they all know keep your mouth shut. Or simple retire.

This snitch may get stitches. The brass will destory this whistleblower. Sometimes it's better to stay quiet.

And THAT is exactly the cowardly behavior that got us to this point. Not just on the cpd, but in Chicago politics in general.

I'm out, thank God, but whenever I stepped out of line, I was reminded you have to 'go along, to get along'. It was a not so subtle way of telling me I'd be punished for speaking up. I guess I never learned how to lie and how to hide in the corner when people were cheating and stealing.

Those cheating lieutenants should be placed back into their prior rank till this investigation is finalized. This city and department is so corrupt that it's pathetic. It also discourages officer from taking exams because of all the corrupt promotional process and the same people getting merit promotions over and over. You should be entitled to one merit promotion in your career.

I don't think that this can be done. Unless things have changed, when you are promoted you resign your previous rank, that is why your seniority restarts.

If the test is declared invalid, all bets are off. Demotion is the least of their concerns.
If the cheaters are exposed as cheaters, there's no need to demote them. They will be fired, at the very least, if not prosecuted. If prosecution is successful, they'll also lose their pension options.
Oops.

Those who cheated HAVE letters, and scores, to wave around. It's how they GOT them that's the issue.
