Gratuity Order

The Order is finally out addressing discounted coffee and meals, and it pretty much follows the Federal guidelines we've seen here and there, along with stuff from the Ethics Test we take every year.

We're wondering about this part though:
  • Section III - Prohibited Gifts

    Subsection B - Specific Prohibitions on Gifts

    Part 2 - Exceptions: The above restriction will not apply to the following

    Item e: Any gift from a personal friend, unless the Department member has reason to believe that, under the circumstances, the gift was given because of his or her official position within the Department.
Would this gift include the answers to a promotional test from a "friend" who happened to be the wife of a high ranking Subject Matter Expert? And would you have to declare it to the Ethics Board? It's obviously worth a bit more than the $50 limit set by the order. We were just wondering.

Wouldn't lunches provided to bosses at 'official' speaking engagements and committee meetings fall under this? It's free food, paid for by others, right?

Are you guys from Iowa or something? The top election law lawyer in Illinois scoffed at the absurd notion that the courts would rule in TD's favor. The system is broken beyond repair and can't be fixed.

Hmmm...
Nice angle.

Aldercritters and others public employees get
gift and freebies. The mayor kicks the taxpayer
rump, sets down his milking bucket and manipulates
overflowing, sweet and creamy quid pro quo for
campaign contributors and other political allies...

Which poses more of an ethical problem when viewed
through a lense with the ever present Chicago
political filter?

A business owner offering the comparatively small
gratuity of gratitude to street Cops or the weapons
grade pay-to-play going on in the 5th floor suites
of 121 N. LaSalle St.?

"The Police are The Problem in Chicago.
Once we "fix" THEM, everything else
will fall in place."

Viva Hate.

Now if the DOJ investigation is such a good thing for the CPD then I would ask for one of the office of Mayor and the Chicago City Council. I am sure they would find a pattern and practice of corruption.
The Mayor should be investigated as should all his cronies and the 50 wise guys/gals and who make up the council.

Should Richie been put in prison for his parking meter deal put together by his brother and sold for less than 10 percent of what it was worth. Now what what of all the other privatization contracts and Tiffs lets investigate them all.

I am sure we could fill an entire wing at a Federal prison and Blago needs the company.

Gratuities. Does this hold true for elected officials also when they receive money from special interests?

Or is it only for Hard Working Police Officers who risk their lives daily to protect others that can not receive Gratuities from special interests? Example a cup of coffee compared to the cash gifts that elected officials receive.

7/30/2016 11:24:00 PM


Those words were spoken by a defeated individual or a dog. Either way I refuse to believe them. WE all make a difference if we choose to.

I see the bangers on the corner and I can no longer wade into them confident that my fellow officers and my supervisors have my back , so I don't challenge them. It's not allowed.

I see the too young driver 'give me the fish eye' so I no longer stop him. The stolen car drives on because the 'fish eye' isn't going to help me in the civil suit when he takes off and causes an accident or I have to shoot him.

Good information from my snitch? Can't use it, not admissible.

So who have the do-gooders really helped here? The tax payer or the good people that have to live in these bad neighborhoods? Nope. they have doomed them and given the streets to the hoods.


We can't do as much as we used to, but we can still do something. Traffic? Take their cars? Why not? It's something. I refuse to believe these vermin are smarter than me. I'll do something. It's what I came here to do.

Incredible moment human chain forms to save woman trapped in her car just as it gets swept away in ferocious Maryland flood

* One woman is seen in stunning video trying to drive through the water as her car is violently pulled by the water
* At least four people are seen holding each other's hands as they try to get closer to the woman
* For a split second it looks like she won't make it, but then she manages to get out through the car window and is carried to safety
* At least one person has died after severe thunderstorms pounded central Maryland late Saturday; two people are still missing
* One official said the flooding in Ellicott City, which destroyed scores of businesses, was worse than that from Hurricane Agnes in 1972

When I was in 012 Ronnie Nash was the commander,and he drove a big green Chrysler station wagon. Once a week he'd send his bagman with the Chrysler to The South Water Market. When he returned that big ass Chrysler was so loaded down with gratuities that the rear bumper would be scraping the street.

A wise old timer told me 30+ years ago.....
"And tomorrow when you get here..... It will only be worse"
Words to live by and pass along to the new kids on the job.

7/30/2016 11:24:00 PM


Those words were spoken by a defeated individual or a dog. Either way I refuse to believe them. WE all make a difference if we choose to.

I see the bangers on the corner and I can no longer wade into them confident that my fellow officers and my supervisors have my back , so I don't challenge them. It's not allowed.

I see the too young driver 'give me the fish eye' so I no longer stop him. The stolen car drives on because the 'fish eye' isn't going to help me in the civil suit when he takes off and causes an accident or I have to shoot him.

Good information from my snitch? Can't use it, not admissible.

So who have the do-gooders really helped here? The tax payer or the good people that have to live in these bad neighborhoods? Nope. they have doomed them and given the streets to the hoods.


We can't do as much as we used to, but we can still do something. Traffic? Take their cars? Why not? It's something. I refuse to believe these vermin are smarter than me. I'll do something. It's what I came here to do.

7/31/2016 11:36:00 AM

Maybe you are correct. However, that doesn't mean the "old timer" is wrong. As near as I can tell, it is worse.

It is hard to believe that the people in charge of the department are issuing an order such as this. I hate to paint all of the exempt with same brush, imbecile, but maybe they are. Imbeciles, all of them. I guess it's possible. Imbeciles all of them.

Yep...thank the cheap, worthless, early start(1400hrs.) 3rd watch car in 001 that decided that instead of eating free at the hotel 200 times a year, having to, out of common sense that ur riding w/DOJ, only eating free there 199 times a year was preposterous...and fyi to all those 3rd watch officers in 001, who are averaging $86,000/yr.- enough is enough with the hotels EVERY day...bring a lunch every so often, because due to your embarrassing cheapness, your car is now forced to hustle TWO lunches/personals/whatever, in a district that will routinely spend a month or two straight in RAP(yes, no bullshit), with no lunches given...jerkoffs.

Hey I remember workin a beat car downtown and the owner of the restaurant, fed
the beat car's free and the other police 50percent off, And then the Traffic unit's
got envolved and wanted the same as the beat car, finally the owner had to stop
all discount's because he wasn't makin any money. WE fucked ourselves!

7/31/2016 08:38:00 AM

Yep, that's what happens when cops burn a place up. Let it be known that a place gives a discount whether for food or other article and soon a ton of cops are flooding the business. Cops are notorious for this and then wonder why the discounts stopped or the placed closed up.

You do realize that those truck drivers are just working stiffs who have absolutely nothing to do with the editorial content of the papers, right? But if it makes you feel like you're accomplishing something, go ahead and hammer them.

Under exemptions #IV letter D.

D. Any corporate/business pricing, benefit, or service offer; group discount; or savings program offered specifically to all Department members by virtue of being City of Chicago employees or public safety professionals.

We can still accept discounts as long as they are available to ALL public safety professionals or ALL city employees. It cannot be contingent on us being CPD or working in a particular area/unit.
