Smoke, Mirrors

  • The Chicago Police Department will add nearly 100 new officers to the force Tuesday, and Chicago needs the help.

    The murder rates surpassed 300 over the weekend -- only halfway through the year -- compared to 480 homicides in all of 2015. The new officers will hit the streets following yet another very deadly weekend with a tally of 13 murders and 46 people wounded between Friday evening and Monday morning.

    The latest police graduation will add 97 new officers and 88 new sergeants to a force struggling to fight deadly violence.
Psssst, media? Here's a dirty little secret - these 97 "new" cops have already been on the street, some for more than a few months.

You see, Rahm is a busy man, and he can't be bothered to take time out of his schedule every time a class of recruits graduates. So they hold off on "graduation day" until Rahm's schedule opens up. Then they pull 97 cops off the street, disrupting District schedules across the city, court appearances in a few cases, and sleep patterns of officers working first or third watches so Rahm can get his face on the news with all these "new hires" that have already been on the street. Essentially, Chicago was short 200 officers yesterday for a photo op.

Same thing with the 88 sergeants. They've been in the Districts for nearly a month on all the different watches. But everyone has to drop everything and dress up and smile for the mayor's press releases.

And you want to know the silliest part of it all? Where did the 88 sergeants come from? If you said "from the ranks of Officers," give yourself a pat on the back. 97 new officers, minus the 88 promotions means a net gain of.....9 officers!

Wow! That's going to solve everything! The homicide rate is going to drop off to near zero with these 9 additional bodies! Thank goodness no one retired between the time these new Officers hit the streets and the time Rahm needed a positive press release.

Betcha it's more than they've hired. So, a net LOSS.

What's funny is the media is so stupid that they believe this hand fed lie and then report it. You would think the media would be skeptical by now and look into the BS first. A net gain of "9"? Well then subtract the 40-50 that retired or quit in the last month or so. Oh yeah by the way more than ever are quiting this job not staying on for retirement. What a mess. Nice reporting media

Rahm is spending our money like its going out of style...(and ours is)...its going to Rahm, to Teachers, to Toni, to the State and the Feds. Drive around the city...check out all the new construction or the new ramp being built just south of Soldier Field. What's that for?? Is it for the Lucas Museum? Friends from out of the country were in town...they think the Lucas thing is ugly and out of place anywhere near the gorgeous museums in this city...they say it doesn't fit the class of Chicago's architecture...that it belongs in LA where phony baloney's live and is so ugly, it doesn't even belong in Frisco. But Rahm is driven to make his Friends happy before they die. Lots of smoke but no mirrors.

"Officers ask me all the time: 'How can I do my job in this climate?'" Johnson said. "I tell them the answer is simple: trust. To be truly effective, you have to become a part of the community that residents can count on for reliable information and a sense of security."

"Would you ask someone you didn't trust for help? Would you give them information about a crime that occurred?" Johnson said. "I wouldn't, and I'm betting you wouldn't. So why should they?"

It doesn't matter what you say. 80% of the department gets it- respond to your calls, back each other up, be very careful with your actions and do not be proactive. 10% of the officers are on the fence. Then we have another 10% who are still proactive and aggressive. That 10% will never get it. Because they identify their ego and self worth with their uniform and job. Their entire self identity is governed by "being the police and acting like it". I would even garner that this is how they behave when at home.

It looks like Hey Jackass should apply their "accounting" skills to tracking the REAL NUMBERS that define the Department' strength. Perhaps through FOIA or court order they can get actual numbers to start with and apply the changes each month for a real time, reconciled true number.

Too bad there are no true journalists anymore. What a five-part "watchdog" story this could be: "Decimated Department," "Deliberate Dismantlement," "Fuzzy Math Personnel Data Dishonesty ," "Social Justice Distractions," and "Violence in the Street." It's got Pultzer written all over it.

All adds up to a bottom line of a deliberate and calculated effort to bankrupt the City (morally and fiscally). Just for good measure they might throw in some alinsky and g. "soros" background to really illuminate the master plan, but that will never happen in this compromised town . . .

Now think about all the full duty sworn officers assigned to straight days , weekends off working in the commanders office , deputy chiefs office , CAPS Office , ERPS , Records Division , Crime Lab, put them back on the street and you could have a citywide unit of a few hundred police officers .

So now the carnage the Gangbangers are unleashing on the streets of Chicago is a 'Public Health Crisis.'

Well, I guess so if you mean that all the WOUNDED people (and folk) are now a lot **unhealthier** than before they became a Lead Magnet. Then factoring in that most Gangbangers don't have Health Insurance (how's that ObamaCare working out?), the TAXPAYERS will have a financial **crisis** when their Tax Bill goes into the Ionosphere to pay for all this bullshit (For CPS schooled trolls, the ionosphere really really high) (/s). So yeah, okay, a 'Public Health Crisis'.

Then again you could always try calling it what it really has become: Domestic Terrorism. And if you don't think the good people in the Gang Infested neighborhoods aren't Terrorized by these savages then you haven't been paying attention. Or, you're lying in fear of being called an 'icky name'.

Granted, calling it Domestic Terrorism would be totally un-pc. It would piss-off the perpetually offended, the professional grievance industry, and every democrat politician trolling for votes in Da Hood. But like with fighting ISIS, you can't beat 'em, if you can't define and admit who, and what, you are fighting.

Otherwise it's all just one big exercise in futility. Otherwise known as -- a circle jerk.

The whole hire/promotionprocess is screwed up and misinformation spewed by Rahm's overpaid, overstaffed public relations department.
Sure, 88 Sgts. less 30% Merit (and remember that class of 6 last Oct? ) = 62 High Quality, Certified, Bonefide and Tested Sergeants.
(granted most came from Units and had been far detached from Uniformed District Patrol, returning shortly to their previous Units, some will never seen the inside of an Explorer or midnights)
The City will never catch up nor do they want to.
Did the City mention the mass retirements anticipated by Dec or the next waves from Jan - June 2017 ?
How many already left and how many hired over the last 18 months?
No and they won't, the media won't even inquire with all the resources available from O'Neils H&R or FOP. It's not what Rahm wants.
But it's a Big Front Page to spin the tales about evil white police officers getting the bulk of promotions and misconduct complaints.

When the head of the Police Board came out and called the CPD a racist organization you should have read between the lines on that one. It is how the progressives view the men and women of the department as a whole. If you do anything but the most basic until this matter shakes out and you see where everything is going then I think you are foolish . Foolish with your future and the security of your family. After what Johnson did to that officer who defended his partner and a few more of his actions, you should take heed. NO ONE has your back now. Kim Foxx campaigned that she could indict more cops faster and she and her supporters praised what happened to the six officers in Baltimore. This is the end of pro-active policing for a generation in this town.

By stripping the officer that was defending his partner lawfully and with the least degree of force the situation required your boss fed the community another spoonful of look at these out of control, racist cops. Shameful. Your Alderman take credit when you arrest one of the bad actors saying that's what i've been saying to do, targeted police work. Then stabbing officers in the back at any opportunity. Your mayor covers up a police shooting to aid in his election and then labels cops as racists. Political piece of shit.
I don't see how the press isn't all over the garbage going on. The whole city is in criminal chaos and the only consistent message i've heard is that there are too many white cops. I live in a place you can put an I support the police bumper sticker on your car without having to worry about being targeted in a drive by or coming out to find your windows broken out. I pray daily for Chicago Police. Must be a nightmare living there.

Stop with the false numbers people! As of yesterday there are 10,718 active patrol members of the FOP. Of course all of those people are not all in beat cars and include detectives, et's marine, canine, mounted.

If we are ever going to get things done we have to stop providing a false narrative just like people are saying the city is doing these graduates and promotions.

FOP should come out and say we have 10,718 active members but those include the above mentioned po's assigned as detective, et's, marine, etc. Then we also have X amount of those 10,718 people assigned/detail to inside spots at the academy, headquarters, areas, districts which leaves us with X amount of patrolman actually sitting in a beat car answer calls.

Just so you are ready though the flip side of this will be the City will send all those active duty po's to the street and replace them with civilians like they are at the desk, FOI, ERPS. The city is not going to hire 3,000 additional PO's. They will continue to "civilianize" clerical spots inside and shift those po's outside. When they do this you can not bitch that I lost my inside desk spot or inside clerical spot.

I've been retired for over 3 years from a suburban department on the southwest side of Chicago. I live in the upper peninsula in one of the largest counties(population 17,000-more deer than people-but decent law abiding people). Been working on my daughter's place in Delavan, WI, and haven't had a lot of internet access so very little time to check second city cop. Just did, and after reading 6 or 7 days of posts just have to think to myself "what the hell is going on in the city?" Things are out of control, and the "higher ups" aren't worth a crap, and don't have your backs. My daughter still works/lives in the city, and has to. That's why I told her not to buy a place in the city, rent a damn apartment.
God Bless you guys and gals out there. The real totals from the past ten days are unreal. Stay safe and go home to your families. Chicago sounds worse than some third world country. The worst part is the rank and file is doing a thankless-no win job/damned if you do-damned if you don't.
My wish for you if you want to continue your career in law enforcement, go somewhere where they appreciate LEO's. The money might not be as great, but knowing that your family and you will be somewhat safer is worth every penny.

Wow, time to hit the medical. Why some of you guys are still locking up people for reckless conduct and narcotics I don't understand. Unless it's signed complaints screw it. There is no reward for working Tact, instead they cancel your days off on a holiday. Its not like the 4th of July is a unforeseen event. It happens every year.

We always wondered why the CPD would promote detectives, youth officers and ftos and two months later promote sergeants, many of whom had just left patrol for a d/2 rank. It always screwed up the numbers. It's a half assed way to run things.

A little over twenty years ago I was working my ass off for less than 40,000 a year. I now make over 90,000 for basically doing nothing. Answer your calls, write a piece of paper and go back to the hole. I love my job. 😈

Stop with the false numbers people! As of yesterday there are 10,718 active patrol members of the FOP. Of course all of those people are not all in beat cars and include detectives, et's marine, canine, mounted.

If we are ever going to get things done we have to stop providing a false narrative just like people are saying the city is doing these graduates and promotions.

FOP should come out and say we have 10,718 active members but those include the above mentioned po's assigned as detective, et's, marine, etc. Then we also have X amount of those 10,718 people assigned/detail to inside spots at the academy, headquarters, areas, districts which leaves us with X amount of patrolman actually sitting in a beat car answer calls.

Just so you are ready though the flip side of this will be the City will send all those active duty po's to the street and replace them with civilians like they are at the desk, FOI, ERPS. The city is not going to hire 3,000 additional PO's. They will continue to "civilianize" clerical spots inside and shift those po's outside. When they do this you can not bitch that I lost my inside desk spot or inside clerical spot.

And those numbers also include everyone on medical and IOD, and everyone at callback or wherever else other than actually patrolling. Being an "active patrol member" doesn't mean shit if you're not patrolling. Cute rant though.

Like the 12th district dolly with 15 years on the who thinks she is too good to work the streets (because she thinks her last name is royalty) so if she isn't assigned to the desk, she hits the medical with a fake foot injury! Get off your high horse ! Medical integrity unit????

Those are worthless and useless officers anyway. "Posers" if you will. Love to say they are the police but don't like to do the job. Not all but most medical people are dogs. Don't believe me, check fscebook. Morons on the medical but are able to attend festivals and Cubs games. I know one who thinks she is special because her families last name. This family has taken advantage of not only CPD but also CFD resources for fallen brothers IN THE LINE OF DUTY!

Your are an idiot if you think there will be no exceptions. Happens all the time even for furloughs. Chosen are always given exemptions
The old family reunion is one of the best. The same people get them every year, commander and bosses go along
