Send in the Clowns!

You know you've fucked up when you have to send in the commanders:
  • Supe sent the commanders into roll call to explain the reasoning. You know they fucked up when commanders are in roll call at 7am on a Saturday morning trying to play "damage control." Our commander literally said "he seems to be within the parameters of the use of force model but I think the dept in this day and age is in the business trying to keep the community peaceful." So you're flat out admitting that you removed an officer from the street and put him in call back for doing nothing wrong because we need to appease the criminals in the community so they don't riot? HOLY FUCK this city is a joke. That officer needs to get a lawyer and sue the city ASAP. This shit is bullshit.
Not only that, but we have De-Escalante demonstrating he knows ZERO about the Use of Force model:
  • Escalante addressed roll call. He said there was nothing in our use of force model that allows an officer to kick someone in the head.

    What a spineless merit hack.
John must have missed a few Use of Force lessons years back. And forgotten what the Use of Force order said when he took (and supposedly passed) promotional exams. And how the order has been changed recently.

Escalante was addressing roll call at the pr fest when he said that. Half the room started laughing the other half was yelling trying to explain he was a high level assailaint. The second in command can't doesn't even know the use of force model or at least can't tell the difference between a resistor and assailant.

When the head is the only body part available to the officer and the assailant is choking another officer and resisting it's ok to kick the assailant in the head. How much does Escalante make a year to not know that? Using a taser is also justified in that situation but could you imagine what the powers that be would've done if that officer tasered that dude in the head?!

If a commander did say that, look for that commander to receive a phone call to come to 35th street and do some explaining. The law suit to follow will have that commander and every cop at the roll call be ordered for a deposition and to testify during the trial. The brass are their own worst enemy, especially when trying to remove both feet from their mouths.

The cancer of Area North, NAGODE, also was preaching about this poor officer being outside the Use of Force Model. This is another hack who had no idea that we could use a head stun (even by foot) to gain control of an aggravated battery offender. We are all screwed....This Nagode is by far the worst thing that could have happened to morale....Thank you Central..At least u gave us fair warning that he was no f%#€in good

C'mon guys and gals...it's not like this is the first time the command staff has conducted 'damage control' during roll calls throughout the city. It certainly won't be the last, although I didn't think it would happen so quickly under the helm of EJ and 1st Deputy Mr. Six.

(SCC, please edit or revise this comment as you see fit. But our directives are online and available to anyone to look up.)

Do the bosses read the General Orders?

Can their attention be directed to General Order 03-02-02, "Force Options", most recently revised in January 2016. IV.C.1.a. Level of Force Response Options Guidelines.....for an "assailant", the following use of force is allowed and advised: "Direct mechanical techniques are hard, concentrating, striking movements such as punching and KICKING [emphasis added], or powerful locks and pressures. These techniques can be combined with take-downs or pins against the ground or other objects." This is straight from the General Orders.

So what now are the options for the officer when he is "stripped of his police powers" for following the General Orders?? Must an officer suffer the indignation of "being stripped" in the eyes of family, loved ones, and friends, because the criminals might get upset?? Sorry if it doesn't "look good" in the media, but guess what, we are the police. Sometimes our work is not pretty. Don't let the public who are uneducated and inexperienced in the intricacies and nuances of police work dictate how police work is done. Stand up at the podium and tell the truth about what we can and cannot do:

Again, from the General Order which quotes the LAW from the Illinois Compiled Statutes:

(720 ILCS 5/7-5) (from Ch. 38, par. 7-5)
Sec. 7-5. Peace officer's use of force in making arrest. (a) A peace officer, or any person whom he has summoned or directed to assist him, need not retreat or desist from efforts to make a lawful arrest because of resistance or threatened resistance to the arrest. He is justified in the use of any force which he reasonably believes to be necessary to effect the arrest and of any force which he reasonably believes to be necessary to defend himself or another from bodily harm while making the arrest. However, he is justified in using force likely to cause death or great bodily harm only when he reasonably believes that such force is necessary to prevent death or great bodily harm to himself or such other person, or when he reasonably believes both that:
(1) Such force is necessary to prevent the arrest from being defeated by resistance or escape; and
(2) The person to be arrested has committed or attempted a forcible felony which involves the infliction or threatened infliction of great bodily harm or is attempting to escape by use of a deadly weapon, or otherwise indicates that he will endanger human life or inflict great bodily harm unless arrested without delay.
(b) A peace officer making an arrest pursuant to an invalid warrant is justified in the use of any force which he would be justified in using if the warrant were valid, unless he knows that the warrant is invalid.
(Source: P.A. 84-1426.)

Here's another law for the media trolls here:
Does a citizen have a right to resist arrest, even if the arrest is unlawful? NO HE DOES NOT!!

(720 ILCS 5/7-7) (from Ch. 38, par. 7-7)
Sec. 7-7. Private person's use of force in resisting arrest. A person is not authorized to use force to resist an arrest which he knows is being made either by a peace officer or by a private person summoned and directed by a peace officer to make the arrest, even if he believes that the arrest is unlawful and the arrest in fact is unlawful.
(Source: P.A. 86-1475.)

Now, class is dismissed. School is out for today.

Let me put a slightly different spin on this whole issue and some others. First there is a lot of talk among many of you about filing a lawsuit. Try to remember that in order to collect in a suit you must have some damages that can be rectified monetarily. Being stripped while not losing any pay or benefits would not qualify. Perhaps Johnson is telling the truth that he stripped and assigned to Officer to desk duty to protect him. Consider this, he is obviously an aggressive type, he goes out in another day or two and has another similar incident. Where does that leave him. Maybe inside, wherever he is, is the best place until this whole thing is over. Many of you probably know that this is standard procedure in many departments. In any controversial actions, officers are routinely assigned to desk duties pending the investigation. That policy protects the individual Officer and the department.

To the Bosses: When you all bucked the old system in the late 90' and started to climb the Great Clout Tree, trying to prove that anovs, parkers, and contact cards were killing crime it was bullshit. Compstat doesn't work. Patrolman that hate you because you were never a cop saw you climb the ladder. There is nobody in the district that can speak up for you, especially on third and first watch, because you never were in patrol with us any longer than you absolutely had to be. Frankly, most of you don't have the first clue about how modern street policing works because you have never had to wear the blue and answer calls in a fast district while people record you understanding that there is nothing better out there for you because you are not connected. You've never condescended to speak to someone who has been there because there was nothing in it for you. Your kind has sucked the city dry and have pushed things too far. You took every thing from the job that was there and destroyed any illusion we in patrol had that we could get someplace on our own merit. Then you still wanted work. And many did it because the had convictions that they were helping the community they worked in. A quiet dignity that they were doing something important even if it wasn't recognized. (A joke to you bosses.) You used to have the carrot and the stick but you sold the carrot. Now you only have the stick and the mule knows he'll get it no matter what he does. The only thing you can do is follow the legitimacy training that you exempted yourself from, and try to rebuild the relationship. Take less, support more, do the job you have well and stop waisting time maneuvering for next one up the ladder. And use district and department budgets for the equipment you need instead of slushing it. Stop stealing from the flower fund and the Christmas party fund( I want a chair at roll call made after Carter was in office!)Give people their time off. They earned it. Stop thinking of patrolman as "These Jagoffs!" If your own personnel don't trust you, how can the community they work in. Blue shirts didn't erode public trust; the pressure you put on them to get your numbers did. I've got the crime reduction awards to prove it. The numbers you demanded are the numbers the ACLU used to hang us. Those fucking contact cards that made your career did this. I know you are scared and it is an uncertain time. It's also exhilarating because, if someone at the top is pulled down maybe you got a shot at commander if your chinaman replaces him. (Wouldn't that be great!) Now I know the justice department has to be gone before the next president is sworn into office since the current president's ex-chief-of-staff is the mayor of the town being investigated, but that's not the end. If we're universally miserable and worried about our liberty and livelihood being taken we won't have any reason not to call off work when we are sick or hurt. (My elbow has been fucked up for a week. I haven called off as is my contractual right. If I have a bad cold I don't call in either.) Horrible conditions uniting workers were what formed unions. Think on it.

You just can't keep making your own rules boss. There's got to be one set of rules fair for everyone, including you.

You keep talking smack about "uncomfortable vs comfortable"

' Ed your not buying a mattress your supposed be leading and saving officers from unnecessary, unfair treatment! Being a leader that can be respected takes work and leadership abilities and sadly you and john are pandering to the thugs and illegal invaders who threaten harm to the blue line. Ed come on your superintendent of police the big "kahuna" and until found out you had a police detail on your home? You caused this by bending over and letting thugs control you! You gave your personal cell phone out to a thug and he was controlling what punishment a working copper who saved his partners life was doing!

I live down the street from where Phil Cline lived as boos, you know what Ed when he was not working he drove his personal car by himself (imagine that) he even rode a bicycle all over by himself,and oh my went to the gym by himself.

Bottom line the mayor made the hire of what 5 more overpaid stooges to "reform" CPD it is really pathetic simple concept "law and order" you obey the law Eddie that should be your news story! Look at the video going around its on another thread on this blog, the thugs taking over police headquarters in a police board meeting threatening and pushing police, any true leader would of called assist units in and ordered the thugs out of "our home" and locked them all up!

I taught the Use of Force Model for many years. It allows the officer to defeat any resistance during a lawful arrest. The officer is not required to first sustain injury before using the accelerated techniques, nor does he have to follow the "officer response" in rank order. If the resistance attains the level of fighting for one's life during a confrontation, the officer can use anything, even a garbage can, to gain control in order to stop the offender's resistance. During any lawful arrest, officers should constantly verbalize for everyone to hear: "Stop resisting, stop resisting!" This, of course, will be caught on camera for all to see and hear.

When the head is the only body part available to the officer and the assailant is choking another officer and resisting it's ok to kick the assailant in the head. How much does Escalante make a year to not know that? Using a taser is also justified in that situation but could you imagine what the powers that be would've done if that officer tasered that dude in the head?!

Eddie does "snapchat":

http://www.chicagotribune.com/news/ct-eddie-johnson-snapchat-20160621-story.html

In the past, the department had failed to draw minority candidates, he told business and community leaders at a City Club of Chicago lunch function downtown, because "we used information mediums that maybe I would use: television, print media, the alderman's office, elected officials."

"That's what we used because that's how we grew up," the 55-year-old said. "But these young folks now don't use that stuff, and we found that out the hard way because we failed to reach our target of minority applicants."

Lets examine this boss:

television: you say that minorities don't watch TV hmm seems the greatest amount of cable customers are in minority neighborhoods and they watch hours of TV?

print media: so they don't read any papers even though everyday the papers are anti-police and pro-minority nonsense?

the alderman's office: Great so when we see the alderpeople marching and hooting and hollering with large minority groups they are not there?

elected officials: Who is that in the background ghosts?

Wow really boss, you really need to hunker down and stay out of the media circus stage they are making you look bad, they were not laughing with you most likely laughing at you!

Al Nagode is a fucking goof. He was an incompetent hack in 024, who nobody trusted. I was never more happy to see a supervisor leave. They should move him to some inside job where he can't do anymore damage.

Saw it in the paper this morning. His defense was brief and to the point followed by another statement about police responsibility. It was not as strong a statement as his initial offensive words and actions in response to the video.

For the same reason clowns from the 009th district tac team posed for pictures with rhamby.... They somehow still think they are going to get made in this cesspool of nepotism. Every blue shirt is always screwing another blue shirt. All because of start times or beat cars. We fight for the limited crumbs this department has to offer. Similar to the way rich kids fight for mommy and daddy's money when they are all grown up. All while the Chicago Mafia's clouted keep getting the easy high ranking jobs fucking up every major case that hits the media. And in the end the rookies have to learn on their own... they won't have it any other way. until they have that 30 day suspension pending over their heads. So more power to them. keeps attention off me as I am going with my 5 year plan to get out of this shithole outfit.

First there is a lot of talk among many of you about filing a lawsuit. Try to remember that in order to collect in a suit you must have some damages that can be rectified monetarily. Being stripped while not losing any pay or benefits would not qualify. Perhaps Johnson is telling the truth that he stripped and assigned to Officer to desk duty to protect him. Consider this, he is obviously an aggressive type, he goes out in another day or two and has another similar incident. Where does that leave him. Maybe inside, wherever he is, is the best place until this whole thing is over. Many of you probably know that this is standard procedure in many departments. In any controversial actions, officers are routinely assigned to desk duties pending the investigation. That policy protects the individual Officer and the department.

EJ doesn't know this copper from methuselah. If he's concerned about his safety, why strip him? Why not put him on the desk like they do with officers post shooting?

Basically you're an idiot.

6/21/2016 08:01:00 AM

Grew up here, seen plenty, and I can tell you that black officers are often much tougher on black offenders. They are down with it, know the language and the games, and you can't race-card them. Even the very best white officers have a little steeper "learning curve;" it's just natural. "Privilege," hell, white ofc. are often harder on white offenders, it's this unconscious thing of "We expect better from you and you're f__ing up." Some of the best and kindest officers I've encountered have been black, and some of the worst deserve-a-kick-in-the-head-themselves dogs have been white.

Hey, big city, big department, takes all kinds of people, it's just the way the street shakes down.

Of course it's a little different today, with everybody now justifiably afraid to do their job right -- with violent street criminals getting bronze memorial plaques set into the public sidewalk by a municipality. (Ferguson...)

God bless all here. Stay safe.

Let me put a slightly different spin on this whole issue and some others. First there is a lot of talk among many of you about filing a lawsuit. Try to remember that in order to collect in a suit you must have some damages that can be rectified monetarily. Being stripped while not losing any pay or benefits would not qualify. Perhaps Johnson is telling the truth that he stripped and assigned to Officer to desk duty to protect him.

A stripped officer can't carry, right? So, being stripped effectively limits an officer's ability to undertake or continue in armed secondary employment. That's a loss of income right there.
And a certain female lieutenant, who retired as a captain, was transferred out of a/5 and sent to a district. She lost no income or rank, but her complaint spoke to a loss of standing and she was reinstated in a/5, with a financial settlement.
So, yes. I can see a lawsuit succeeding for those trapped in callback hell.
(And YOU sound like the placating voice of a City Hall intern with orders to find a way to make the officers who are victimized by this policy stand down.)

I agree that the deadly force rule has not changed. What has changed is the perception in the community, media and some (democratic) political circles as to the use of force. Any use force is thought of as bad justified or not. Sadly, that is the new reality.

Being stripped while not losing any pay or benefits would not qualify. Try to remember that in order to collect in a suit you must have some damages that can be rectified monetarily.Being stripped while not losing any pay or benefits would not qualify. Retort(In a defamation lawsuit this is not true at all. Showing harm or potential harm against future earnings because of the false statements would be enough in this case)
Perhaps Johnson is telling the truth that he stripped and assigned to Officer to desk duty to protect him. Retort (Consider that any promotional process that this officer would want to be a part of would be clouded by this stripping)
Consider this, he is obviously an aggressive type, he goes out in another day or two and has another similar incident. Retort (If the officer in this case was reassigned pending the outcome of a departmental internal investigation, that would be enough to keep the media at bay would it not? The officer would suffer no ill effect in his personnel jacket and future career opportunities and the command staff wouldn't eat crow and spin the collective uniform body's moral into a dumpster fire. This also prevents anything remotely close to coming back in 2 or 3 days and doing the same. Any action can't be predicted, Officer involved shootings, car accidents, use of force or just complaints about professional standards. To not put an officer back out on the job after he has been vetted is lunacy on the part of the agency and simply put makes no sense. If civil liability was your main concern then leadership is not your calling.)
Many of you probably know that this is standard procedure in many departments. In any controversial actions, officers are routinely assigned to desk duties pending the investigation. That policy protects the individual Officer and the department. Retort (Stripping is not in any way shape or form the norm in many departments. Calling community activists and advising them of action that you took before any investigation is also not the norm. Perception is a deadly game that Law Enforcement Leadership can't play, {See the Baltimore Police arrests in Freddy Gray}It is incumbent upon Leadership to do the right thing by the rules and this protects the agency and the community in which they are sworn to protect. It's obvious that you love your agency. It's also obvious that you don't see the bigger picture. This isn't just about this officer. It is about all law enforcement across the US. We must use this case as a shining example of why we shouldn't be served up as sacrificial lambs just to appease the blood thirsty, race baiting media {See The Pinellas County Sheriff Bob Gualtieri response to this tactic by the media on April 22, 2016. Simply put, If not now? when?

******* When force is applied, a member will escalate or de-escalate to the amount of force which is reasonably necessary to overcome the subject’s resistance and to gain control.
1. Members are not required to start at the lowest levels of the Use of Force Model; they will select the appropriate level of force based on the subject’s actions.
2. Members will modify their level of force in relation to the amount of resistance offered by the subject

There's a training bulletin, streaming video, General order, Special Order, law department and an academy staff available daily egg yolk head. Instead of stripping the officer, how about you go back to the Academy as a retread. On another note..Eddie "Jelly back" Johnson defended the officer's actions, yet stripped him.."for his own good"..that sounds about right.

Doesn't matter who the superintendent is, he/she will directly take orders and make moves given by rahm. A CPD superintendent will never be their own person, when they make a move it comes from city hall, when they make an order it is from city hall, the CPD is definitely not even partially independent of city hall! Not a fan of Eddie's but do you think any boss could change the culture of political influence from city hall?
