Coming Soon - Bussing Cops

  • Chicago has 22 police stations scattered across the city, and white police officers hold at least half of the jobs in 12 of them — including two stations serving black neighborhoods on the West Side, where murders and shootings are rampant.

    Black cops have more than half the jobs in just two police stations — both on the South Side, one serving Hyde Park, Kenwood, Bronzeville, Grand Boulevard and Washington Park, the other covering Roseland and West Pullman. Some districts have hardly any black officers at all.

    Hispanic police officers hold more than half the jobs at only one police station, a district that includes Little Village, one of the city’s most heavily Mexican neighborhoods.
So....what exactly? This is news? Or yet another subtle dig at contractual protections?
  • More than 70 percent of Chicago’s nearly 12,000 police officers are assigned to one of the city’s 22 police districts. They include Chicago’s street officers, the most visible cops in the city, the ones most likely to respond to calls for help, but not the department’s detective units and other specialized bureaus.
There's that bullshit 12,000 again. How many news outlets have done stories on how more officers are retiring than being hired?

And it's leading to this crap:
  • State Sen. Kwame Raoul, D-Chicago, says he thinks Chicago needs more black officers assigned to black neighborhoods — which are often patrolled by rookies, black or white, who are typically assigned to high-crime beats because they have no seniority to transfer to other assignments.

    “You can’t presume everything just based on race,” Raoul says. “But there’s an increased likelihood that, if you have an African American, they’re more familiar with the nuances of the African American community. There’s a certain cultural competence that can allow for officers to distinguish between one individual who may be dressed in a hop-hop type of attire that’s not a threat and somebody who is, in fact, a threat.
So with Kwame's vast experience as a police officer in minority neighborhoods, he.....what? He isn't? So what''s the basis for his "vast" knowledge here? Oh, race-baiting agitator? Amazing.

Perhaps Kwame could explain why so many minority officers bid out of predominantly minority neighborhoods where they're called all manner of names, race-traitors, etc. We suppose they get sick of the bullshit heaped on them by those Kwame says they should "relate" to. We imagine they don't want to relate to assholes.

Districts are majority biddable positions. If someone wants to go somewhere, they have to weigh things like seniority to figure out what watch they'll get or what kind of vacation they can bid for. Then there's the high crime busy spots and the lower crime, retirement spots. Most shitholes, like 011 and 015, get all the new kids when all the senior people bid out. 011 and 015 eat up coppers at a tremendous rate - most people bid out as soon as possible. That has nothing to do with race and everything to do with cops going to wherever their seniority can get them.

But we have this imaginary "black cops for black hoods" mentality appearing among the morons. Among those who know better, we get this:
  • But Wesley Skogan, a Northwestern University professor who specializes in police issues, says race shouldn’t factor into the assignment of police officers, an issue he says was debated by Emanuel’s Police Accountability Task Force.

    “It flies in the face of police research,” says Skogan, who, like Raoul, was among the experts who served in working groups to help the task force suggest reforms for the police department. “Cops are blue in color, with race predicting very little about their behavior or performance.”
Amazing. Now apply that to the supposed "profiling" going on - cops see and profile behavior. If you act like an ass, you are going to attract attention. It's natural. You know who cops don't notice? The guy driving a clean car with working equipment and up-to-date plates, obeying the traffic laws and not talking on their cell phone.

But the media has to find a racial angle to everything - it's overplayed, it's insulting and it's bullshit.

Well said. Why is policing so "racially charged.?" Because the media loves making issue out of any incident involving arrests of blacks by white officers. What all of us, as police officers, need to realize is that we are all on the same team. I can't, in 15 years of this, remember a single incident where black or white or Hispanic or Asian or any other race decided to arrest someone simply based on race. I'm sure it's possible it's happened. However, in my opinion, the vast majority of us don't even consider race when it comes to any situation. The media, especially locally, has inflamed race relations to a point in this city where it's beyond acceptable. At what point does it stop and reality occurs. I almost feel that the media wants to fuel hatred that never before existed. Of course there will always be debatable issues but, in this city, no one wins because perceived hate sells. It's pathetic that some hack sits at a computer in Naperville and trashes cops when they have no f'n clue about what really happens on a day to day basis in this city. The real losers are the good people livin in tough areas because any smart cop, black white purple, has realized that it's better for their own well being and that of their family's to walk away. I hope Pfleger n all the rest are happy with what they've caused. This city is ruined

SCC I have a question off topic. That was brought up recently by Dean I think but shut down rather quickly by higher ups. If IPRA is taking the lead on police involved shootings now, against state law which states that the lead investigating agency MUST be a certified law enforcement agency, which they are not, what are the chances of a PO sueing for his/her job back based on that fact? IF he/she was fired from the findings of the technically illegal IPRA investigation. How is there no one looking into this. Or is there.

21 thankless years working in 011, 010 and 015.

We got old. We got hurt. We got tired. We got burned out.
We got sick of dealing with ignorant, no impulse control having adult children.

We played our "Seniority Card" as provided by our contract and bid
to a quieter, better behaved district.

Guess what?
Less grief, aggravation and our pistol doesn't leave the holster anywhere
near as much now...

We actually felt sympathy and admiration for the stand-up black officers
who took no shit and did their jobs while being roundly motherfucked
by the whole block for giving them the law and order they needed instead
of the "Brother Pass" they thought they deserved just because black officers
were working on that beat.

And just to show how full of shit these noisy m/fers are, when they see
"Bruh Ossifer" wasn't going to cut that ass any slack, who do you think
they went looking for?

The same "Racist-Ass Po-leece" they're accusing of committing genocide and other atrocities in their communities.

The topper was hearing some stout-mouthed hefty heifer just GO IN on
a black Officer and among other things, accuse him of being:
"Racist against yo' own peoples!"

M/Fers ought to be glad Policemen tolerate the shit they do
for as long as they do.

"Stop trying to save y'all selves from us!"

It's a damned shame that the only answer these people have
is trying to figure out ways to void our contractual protections.

The media should be looking into how many calls police respond to in black neighborhoods compared to other neighborhoods.
Then people might realize why cops have so many interactions with black people. They're not being profiled. They're the ones calling the cops. They're asking for it.
If more police are in these neighborhoods because of the high volume of calls and the high demand for police then obviously the cops will be stopping more black people.
And you can also look up reports and look at the offender's description to see who the police are encountering every day. Look up the reports for robberies, burglaries, shootings, thefts, etc. where there is an offender description. This will be actual proof that cops are not targeting black people because of the color of their skin, but cops are arresting a large number of black people because they're responsible for a large amount of crime.

Just more political posturing. Just disarm and disband the police in lieu of community solutions. Just come out and pull all the cops out of the districts where the innocent people and their children need them the most. All in an effort to promote some warped social engineering stemming from the agenda of social justice.

To say black cops will treat their brethren in a kinder fashion than white cops is fallacious.

Kwame sees himself as the next Obama, and he may start by going for the Mayor's job. As for the Race issue, Kwame is all wrong. Some of the most compassionate cops in minority districts are in fact White. Many who see there mission as "helping" and "caring" for others stay in minority districts long after they are able to bid out, because in the poverty and chaos there is much work to be done. And at the same time, some of the most brutal and corrupt cops in minority Districts were of the predominant race in that District. It is remarkable and disturbing, that after decades of working to integrate our city, people like Race Hustler and Political Hack Kwame, crawl out of the woodwork to exploit the situation. People like Kwame profit and benefit from Racial Divisiveness, without it he would just be another nobody. And the Media and other Hacks prop this guy up as some sort of savior!

Urban policing is the only profession where white males routinely are called and invited to enter the homes of black people on a routine basis. Any white officer that does 20 years in the cpd has been exposed to a great deal of black culture, and he gained it by dealing with people under stress. I wouldn't underestimate his knowledge or understanding of black life in the areas he serves.

Deuce I love your blog but the issues in this article speak to a lot of larger issues. Where there is smoke there is fire. In order to confront the issues that divide police from the communities they serve, all anomalies have to be looked at. Hell I remember when I was pushing a beat care in two south side districts, the early cars for the most part were white and the late cars were all black again, with some exceptions. Before I I transferred 25 years ago to my first unit these divisions were shocking as hell to me. I was fortunate that though being on paper assigned to a district I remained in various units where I only had to show that I had a uniform for uniform inspections. I am glad for 25 years I never had to work a beat car before retiring last year. Working as a task force officer with two federal agencies and as a police agent IAD I was able work in environments where you didn't have the color divisions. We all worked and socialized together. I would have quit or retired if I had come on a transfer order back to the patrol bureau. In fact I never even took a promotional exam so I could stay in my units. I really wish the districts could have the same environments as in units.

Bringing up a psych test failure HE believes is because of the question Have you ever slept with your mother. (apparently he has and he says ALL African American males have slept with their mothers!)

The kid pulled over Every Single weekend for playing music too loud and if the alleged gun in the side and a choke were true, I hope he called IPRA. (but somehow I think not)

The one that wants more drug and background checks because "that way you are going to know if they are part of the klan or live in Mount Greenwood, where there aren’t any black folks around,” she said.

But members of the crowd were in an uproar when it was noted that the investigation is a civil one, and that no police officer will be prosecuted regardless of the findings.

Here's a suggestion, educate the black community that NONE of this shows misconduct or brutality by the CPD.

Let the senator hold a focus group. Arrange for a group of 20 black officers meet with the senator. He can discuss race issues with the group, seeking their honest opinion of the conditions on the street? Why are black officers biding out to a slower district? Seek their input on race relations. Hopefully, this meeting could be a honest discussion of how to work with the black community? Or is the senator afraid to face the truth? Let the senator bring a few experts with him. I have a feeling he does not want to know the truth. This idea of black officers patrolling black communities is a horrible idea. BTW I noticed that our leaders remain quiet on this topic?

Um, so they think black officers will be buddies with black thugs and hood rats because they share the same skin color, LOL nope!

Here's a hit it's not about skin color, it's about behavior. There's black, white, brown, and asian that act like uncultured trash... and there's black, white, brown, and asian that act like normal, respectable human beings.

It just so happens that a large percentage of blacks act a fool. It's their choice.

Look at asian american's, we forcibly put japanese in internment camps for cryin out loud. Look at the asian people today in the US, by and large they are higher educated, work harder, and out earn everyone else. Facts here, not opinion.

It's because there's good parenting for one. Parents are involved, and place expectations on their child's education. They give respect for elders and authority figures. They know the value of hard work.

So it's a CULTURE problem, fix the black culture (blacks have to stand up and do it) and you end the problems. Will it ever happen? Humm maybe. Are more black police officers going to fix anything? NOPE!

>>>>>> 'McDonald was killed in the Chicago Lawn district, where the Sun-Times analysis found 65 percent of the cops are white, 26 percent are Hispanic and 7 percent are black.' <<<<<<

Uh....so what? What's your point Slum-Times?

Not that long ago the area served by Chicago Lawn, District 008, was almost all white. You'd have to search really hard to find a minority in that part of the Southwest Side (a portion of Brighton Park, Marquette Park, West Eldson, and Clearing). So were there TOO MANY black and Hispanic Cops and not enough White Cops back then?

Or how about the Deering District, 009, and the neighborhoods of Bridgeport, McKinley Park, and Brighton Park. Those neighborhood also used to be mostly White. Should all minority cops have been banned from Patrolling there, having only Hispanic Cops patrol in the part of 009 that's in mostly Hispanic 'Back of The Yards'.

Should the CPD base all patrols on the latest census? That's what you seem to be saying, you all knowing Slum-Times 'Watchdogs'. Then what about when a neighborhood's racial makeup changes literally overnight, a couple of years. Is the Police Dept supposed to change all its Beats to mirror that??

How the hell are they supposed to do that --- can you say Chinese Fire Drill, huh 'Watchdogs'? No, well how about 'FUBAR', because that's what would result. So forget this 'Watchdog' nonsense Slum-Times and stick to what you're good at.

Then again, if you did that, you'd be out of business. You leftist pinheads didn't get the moniker Slum-Times for nothing.

The Chicago Fire Department most black firefighters work in white neighborhoods with lower call volume. The 111 blacks that sued for their job, A majority of them transferred to O hare and will never go to a fire . Look at any busy firehouse in the city's black neighborhoods a majority of the Firefighters and Paramedics that service the community are White. Why is that ? Why are white firefighters putting in for the busiest companies in black neighborhoods, and black firefighters go work in slow white neighborhoods?

At this point, why not fragment the country? Make a referendum. The black community is 13pct of the country, that's six and a half states. We'll round it up to seven. Louisiana Mississippi Georgia Alabama Florida South Carolina and North Carolina. If the referendum passes, let the population shift begin. If it doesn't, and I sincerely believe it won't happen, then from this point on shut the fuck up about this race bullshit.

Problem is this mentality also carries over to some officers on the police department, to wit:

You changed my start time 'cause I'm pink, you shouldn't put me on that beat because I'm pink, the only reason you did is because you, the WOL, are purple (like he fills cars based on color. Come on, we don't have enough personnel to man all the cars regardless of color). Oh, and by the way, I need a weekend day off group because I'm pink and go to Church, and my Commander is also pink so I went over the purple WOL's head and got what I wanted. To hell with everyone else who might want a Sunday off on occasion, I'm pink and got them all off! The list could go on and on...Funny part is most pink officers don't want to work with this individual

Look at the comments from the audience members.

Bringing up alleged incidents from 42 years ago.

Bringing up a psych test failure HE believes is because of the question Have you ever slept with your mother. (apparently he has and he says ALL African American males have slept with their mothers!)

The kid pulled over Every Single weekend for playing music too loud and if the alleged gun in the side and a choke were true, I hope he called IPRA. (but somehow I think not)

The one that wants more drug and background checks because "that way you are going to know if they are part of the klan or live in Mount Greenwood, where there aren’t any black folks around,” she said.

But members of the crowd were in an uproar when it was noted that the investigation is a civil one, and that no police officer will be prosecuted regardless of the findings.

Here's a suggestion, educate the black community that NONE of this shows misconduct or brutality by the CPD.

What a great illustration of what we have to deal with everyday.

People who are so far out of touch with reality that they think YOU are the FUCKED UP ONE.

A man who has no idea what the term "slept with" means, a woman who wants to ban police officers from living in MG and a woman who cant understand why her nephew gets pulled over for loud music weekly. These motherfucker can't comprehend simply language but want to put you in an orange suit for doing something they think is wrong because comprehension of the written and spoken word is racist.

The media should be looking into how many calls police respond to in black neighborhoods compared to other neighborhoods.
Then people might realize why cops have so many interactions with black people. They're not being profiled. They're the ones calling the cops. They're asking for it.
If more police are in these neighborhoods because of the high volume of calls and the high demand for police then obviously the cops will be stopping more black people.
And you can also look up reports and look at the offender's description to see who the police are encountering every day. Look up the reports for robberies, burglaries, shootings, thefts, etc. where there is an offender description. This will be actual proof that cops are not targeting black people because of the color of their skin, but cops are arresting a large number of black people because they're responsible for a large amount of crime.

7/17/2016 01:17:00 AM
That could easily be countered with a problem we talk about almost daily: there simply not being enough police officers in a quiet yet "busy" district like 016 to respond in white areas because they are all in black and Hispanic areas. So there isn't enough police to actually come in to contact with whites. Think about what call takes priority, the crazy white homeless guy screaming at traffic or the call of a robbery (and based on stats the robbery offender will more likely be a black or Latino man)? But in 015 you have numbers to respond to the call of the guy hopped up on PCP screaming at everyone on Pulaski while responding to the robbery call.

Although, If I never agree with race-baiters, I will always agree after working in my fair share of black districts that black communities have a huge mental illness problem that is neglected and most certainly brings police in to contact with blacks more often than we are "trained" to handle.

About 20 years ago, a mixed bunch of coppers

to ride out their second half without getting
shot at or worrying about m/fers "comin' off

"Damn! They actually have tablecloths and flatware

Why are you guys eating with your guns out?"

21 thankless years working in 011, 010 and 015.

We got old. We got hurt. We got tired. We got burned out.
We got sick of dealing with ignorant, no impulse control having adult children.

We played our "Seniority Card" as provided by our contract and bid
to a quieter, better behaved district.

Guess what?
Less grief, aggravation and our pistol doesn't leave the holster anywhere
near as much now...

We actually felt sympathy and admiration for the stand-up black officers
who took no shit and did their jobs while being roundly motherfucked
by the whole block for giving them the law and order they needed instead
of the "Brother Pass" they thought they deserved just because black officers
were working on that beat.

And just to show how full of shit these noisy m/fers are, when they see
"Bruh Ossifer" wasn't going to cut that ass any slack, who do you think
they went looking for?

The same "Racist-Ass Po-leece" they're accusing of committing genocide and other atrocities in their communities.

The topper was hearing some stout-mouthed hefty heifer just GO IN on
a black Officer and among other things, accuse him of being:
"Racist against yo' own peoples!"

M/Fers ought to be glad Policemen tolerate the shit they do
for as long as they do.

"Stop trying to save y'all selves from us!"

It's a damned shame that the only answer these people have
is trying to figure out ways to void our contractual protections.




There are a lot of police officers that have never experienced what we have.... Have never been through what we've been through. There are a lot of career 020th district/ north side coppers out there. That use to bother me. Now I'm just jealous
