"Give Up" Disabled Status?

Someone explain please?
  • OT, but today at the Pension Board, a letter was read into the record. I understand that the letter was from FOP President Angelo. In it, he gave up his "disabled" status. Why would he do that if were actually disabled? Maybe because he isn't disabled, but was just another drain on the already broke pension fund.

    Big thanks to Lt. Maloney for FINALLY getting Angelo off the rolls of the disabled. As for Lappe and Hauser, they can go to hell. Thanks for looking the other way while the pension went bust, sell-outs! 
You can surrender a disability status? So what now? You take the P.O.W.E.R. test and come back to work? Is this some sort of miracle... should we call Rome?

Does this or can this affect post-FOP employment? Something in the six-figures range like previous past-presidents have managed to land?

That's why I'll never understand why a majority of active police officers voted for disability Dean. How can you vote for someone on disability to lead the fop for the active members. It's an outright disgrace. You want, you got it.

That's still called "Treachery," right?

Or has it been artfully crafted into something else now?

Oh... Just never-fucking-mind.

What a scam that was. I asked Dean via email when he was running years ago how he could not do 311 desk duty but be FOP which is essentially a desk job. He just tap danced around the answer.

There has to be more benefits to being on disability, other than no taxes, because there are soooo many people on disabilities?

Department has been trying to call back those on the disability list for a few years. If PO is capable, they come back as light duty and have them work inside. Makes sense, not everyone on that list is incapacitated. Some guys want to come back, but for years, the department didn't see a need for them.

A good man who is a friend of the Police and will have a MAJOR impact on the City and it's Police if he wins the political office he is running for, was involved in a hit and run traffic crash recently. Dude tboned him as he was driving down Elston Ave and takes off. Our friend calls the Police who respond and then proceed to do............nothing. NOTHING! Won't write the report, run the plate, look for the offending driver, nothing. Now here is a victim who genuinely supports the Police and can have a major impact on crime,the Police and justice in this city/county. And we treat him like shit. I can understand going fetal and not coming in with these bs arrests or writing traffic tickets etc., but should going fetal mean not helping our friends? Gotta pick and choose your battles and not helping our friends is a HUGE mistake.
Sorry Chris.

__________________________________________________________________

Sadly, the majority of active police officers can't be bothered to fill out a ballot and mail it back in. I believe that the retirees are party responsible for Dean's coronation. I'd hope that the active membership can take two minutes of their day and complete a ballot as the next election approaches. Hopefully they'll even vote for someone concerned about the active members and not so wiling to give away tuition, duty availability and other fought for rights that affect active membership. You know, issues that retirees selfishly could care less about.

Dean Angelo's disability status is the foremost reason that I would never vote for him for any elective office. I am not a doctor but I always questioned that he was too disabled to work. Somehow he was able tomove past that and get a job teaching. The scamming displayed there seems to indicative of the man's character to get my vote ever. Now he is cured???

He's already max'd his pension benefits like 6 years ago. He never asked to be on disability the city put him on disability.

In a effort to put every full-duty officer on the street the city has changed it's internal requirements. Now officers can work with many problems (exposed brace, specialized chairs, etc.) that they would never let work before. The city wants every full duty officer out of call back, ERPS, E&S, and working in a box somewhere. I've heard that He's just taking advantage of the change in policy.

This month's FOP Journal has a column by Mike Lappe detailing how hard he works to remove freeloaders from the Disability List. The usual egregious violators being video taped performing physical tasks which the disability status states they cannot perform. Yet, out in the open is our Deano teaching and performing tasks which would qualify for call back unit.
SCC - you are 100% right to question why this blatant farce has been carried out for YEARS. Hauser's ineptitude while the Pension Board loaned the Daley-Vanecko Crime Family 60 Million $$ is more than enough to have him removed but he also is a dead bump on the log known as the FOP Board of Directors. This chump should be removed so fast that his toupe would fall off! And why would Deano want an IROC card if you can't carry on City Wide College campuses unless you're campus police? Just another example of Deano's corrupt moral compass. Hopefully he won't even be near the upcoming contract negotiations. His new moniker should be Disgraced Disability Dean!
And FOP should treat him like Shields - no Past President title. Just put in Casciano until the next election. And this time - VOTE!

Not like all this strife was planned to bust unions and seek to abrogate pension law. We need an elected police commissioner.

Am I the only one bothered when Angelo says things like "worst I have seen in my 36 years". because I remember him in Nolan's disaster and I think he was medical with a knee injury for 20 years, maybe I'm wrong but I question how much of the street he has seen and how much police work he has done. I realize that does not necessarily impact his ability as president but it comes off like a person who lies on their resume.

I posted the above on another thread. I did not vote for DA because I thought his disability was bogus. I really hope we find out if this is true and get the whole story.

I did 30 years all on the street, my choice. I have a neighbor who worked 6 years mostly inside got a duty disability and when they transitioned her off disability at 63 she tells people she was a police officer for 33 years. That rubs me the wrong way. To be clear this type of scam is certainly not exclusive to CPD.

He will be assigned to "Detached Services" at least til' the end of his FOP term.

If he is not re-elected he will probably retire with the age 60 FREE insurance benefit.

There is a 250 female "officer" who is "light-duty" working the desk in 014 on DAYS with only a handful of years on the job.

She scammed "light-duty" by falling in the parking lot with only a year on the job and stating she has a "bad back".

Many of these "light duty" con-artists can still carry a weapon and be in uniform so they put them in the districts last month and the alternate bid spot officer gets kicked back to the street. It is within the parameters of the contract.

Just like Dean, some of these shiftless scammers are disgusting.

Its obvious he's getting ready to retire. I'm amazed at the stupidity of some that post here and when I read it there is no way that some of these goofs are the police. Actually he will probably make more money being retired then he does on duty disability. Do any of you goofs posting read your own contract? Duty disability doesn't get the raises or any of the extra checks the working police get. Believe me at anytime you can end up on disability be it that life threatening heart attack and bypass or that car accident or that one arrest. Now keep bitching you idiots because you'll talk yourselves out of the few duty disability benefits you do get maybe at the next contract you idiots will give duty disability up for another 1% raise. Just hope you never need it.

I remember when insurance was free along with prescription drugs but the idiots on this job gave that up for a few bucks back pay. Blame the Ed Burkes, blame 35th street and the clouted blame everybody but yourselves but its always been the dumb as coppers who have screwed themselves on every contract for a few bucks. I suggest you whiners read your contract and at least understand it and your benefits before you sit and bitch about everything that you FOP members have let get away.

As for Mike Lappe yeah real nice guy but so focused and pissed off at all on disability he totally neglects the real problems with whats happening to our pension. Mike never had a bad job before he was hurt and he got a really good gig after that believe me for the average duty disabled cop would never be available or offered.

Alternate bid what is that? Never heard of that just all the brown nose full duty that refuse to work the street every district has them. Those that will bend over back words the minute you snap your fingers. Those are the biggest scammers those who are too afraid to work the street who have been leaving early for years and now have a whole new position made up "alternate" ok two year wonder. The right word there is relief officer which is not covered in the contract read it someday. We have an officer in our district who has been light duty for years working in the commanders office, what's the difference? You had your feelings hurt or you must be management on days. Now who in the hell cries over a desk spot? Your the police act like one!

Check court records and pension board disability requests. Lappe sued the pension board and the city to get his job back! He couldn't even work the streets anymore! He was given gigs at Neighborhood Relations in 016 and the Academy. Lo and behold, he decided to try for duty disability in 2009-2010 in order to collect 75% tax free money for eight years. Of course, he was denied because he sued them to get his job back! Since he's so bitter for never being promoted and denied duty disability he's decided to get officers less injured than him off disability.

When Deano gave a short, very short, statement to a retiree luncheon at Biagio's last year people tried to ask him questions. He ignored them and sprinted toward the exit like O-J in a Hertz commercial. So whatever his disability was it wasn't affecting his ability to run.

He is scheduled to speak at another luncheon soon. Maybe we should post the questions on the blog in advance and maybe we should block the exits.

There are many i.e. on disability or trying for it that are able to work. It's ridiculous that these individuals get away with collecting money to sit at home or they want to work another job. Two officers hired attorneys and lost , guess what, they are now back at work, more miracles.
Disabled should mean that! These fakers that function just fine but don't want to work! This job turns in to welfare for too many. !
Disability should be taxed , they should not be allowed to work another job and they should be living in Chicago, so when that miracle happens ( they get caught) they can come back to work.

You are right about Dineen. He is back in the board under Dean making $600 a month for sleeping at meetings. Dean loves giving our health insurance benefits back to the city. In 1999, the city wanted our portion of the health insurance to be a percentage of our salary. The Fop agreed to it, but the membership voted it down overwhelmingly. Dean and Nolan allowed the city to do it anyway. Thats why they were all thrown out of office back in 2002. Dean then went a disability for 12 years and then ran for president in 2014. In 2014, Dean gave away the 55 free health insurance by opening up the door making it 2% in 2017. So, I we stand today Dean, his son Dean Jr, Bill Nolan and John Dineen are all on the Fop payroll.

What about Lappe (pension board) who was shot in the line of duty, crippled and when the city put him on disability he sues to get back on the job and his "Clout" gives him a "spot" in 016 Neighborhood relations??? Physically unable to perform police work yet allowed to wear the uniform and carry a gun? Now, years later he's elected to the pension board and decides he wants to go on duty disability but is DENIED DUTY DISABILITY STATUS! WHY, 75% TAX FREE OF CURRENT PAY FOR 5 YRS...but will probably retire at mandatory 63, meanwhile he never pays any medical until he goes on pension.
