One District, Two Cars?

Word coming in from 016 that on First Watch for Saturday, 31 July, there were a grand total of five cars answering calls.

And when the early cars checked off, there were exactly two.

Our e-mailer writes that while this was happening on 016, there were 40 cars assigned to 015. We have no idea if this is beat cars, rapids, wagons, tact teams along with the VRI zone cars, Saturation and Summer Mobile, but seriously? Two cars? In one of the larger Districts in the city?

Leaving aside the crime issue, what about as a safety issue? Who the hell is running this shit show? Has anyone called the aldercreatures?

2 cars in 016, 40 cars in 015.

OK.

Despite this 20-to-1 imbalance, how many shootings & other violent felonies in 016 during that time vs. how many in 015? Not to mention general crap.

Hm?

Now, why is that?

So who here is already "self-policing," i.e., possessed of some degree of rationality, insight, maturity, and impulse control?

Nothing further.

Nice! They must figure there is no one up there committing crime. I'll bet the people who live there pay high taxes. I would call the Aldermn and complain. Don't think it will go anywhere but, if you don't complain they just keep setting the bar higher.

Aldermen Napolitano and Sposato are the only 2 members who i don't call AlderCreature. They are not buddies w/RAHM so only direct pressure on Ed the Stripper (who recently told Edison Park residents that more officers/cars will remain in 016) and Rahm via the media. Start calling with the story of only 2 squad cars. Throw the race card into the mix. Why should we get shorted when the strategy is not working? Hey Robin, what about our community?

Then again, sounds like someone trying to stretch already-stretched resources.

The REAL unreported crime is - some people paying big taxes get shit service (and poor protection) whereas others, are getting a lot more than they pay for.

...Because you decent, high-ass tax paying, law abiding
"Silent Majority" types are allowing Rahm Emanuel to
bend you at the waist and stick it up your clay pipes?

You know... It's a satisfactory replacement for the
Police presenceand other city services that he has
stolen from you to give to the non-contributory areas
of the West and South sides.

This is to keep the Catered-To Constituency on the
Chicago Democratic slave plantation so they can be used
as a political weapon AGAINST YOU in order to keep you from
being able to take your city back.

True representative municipal governance in America's
Progressive Democrat controlled large urban centers
has been made to be a farce and a fraud, in addition to
being a series of long running criminal enterprises that
center around the theft and misappropriation of stupendous
amounts of taxpayer treasure over the last 50 years in
relentless pursuit of political pandering.

Rahm Emanuel is betting that you decent, law-abiding people
are too nice and too busy trying to make a buck and raise
your families to get mean and mad enough to march on City
Hall to chains the doors and burn it to the ground in
response to the outrages being inflicted on you just because
you try your best to play by the rules.

The Perpetually Aggrieved classes of "peoples and folkses"
who have been given control of this city, have NO compelling
rules or standards of conduct to abide by.

"We mighty cuz we LOUD!"

Their flawed and diversionary cause, has no pause.

Shit...
Just look at the property tax break down in the Fibune.
Now overlay the CPD district map and the current manpower
for each district.

Now see if you can get your hands on district manpower
numbers from just 20 years ago and do a comparison/contrast.

You "Silent Majority" types will see EXACTLY where you stand
with this mayor and the alderfools who represent the
hyper-violent, non-contributory, resource draining areas
of this city.

"Y'all racist if y'all get mad and fight us to get y'all
share back. Y'all got jobs an' shit so share..."

Meanwhile...
M/Fers are migrating from their way over-Policed nesting
grounds to your intentionally short-staffed areas in order
to get up on you and yours when they think you're unawares.

"Y'all gots nice shit so stop being stingy!
Just buy another one!"

Meanwhile...
They're trying to separate YOUR Police from the public good will.

It's galling to see these assholes so sure that the good people
of this city won't push back against their bullshit, fuckery
and outrages.

Chicagoans used to be made of much meaner and tougher stuff.
Oh well... Good luck finding a native-born son of the city
who actually "gets it." Chicago is overrun with "pleasant"
people who think fighting back and fighting hard, mean and
dirty is only for you Cops and other "blue collar types"
who are all supposedly hugely pissed off because it isn't
1960 anymore.

They're "taking it to the cops" because they're afraid of
the decent and upright people teaming up with The Police
and telling the perpetual grievant class of "peoples and
folkses" where to go.

Info For The Police:
Police like you have no friends.

If that's the case then those last two cars should've immediately went into 016 on TVB'S. If the bosses don't care enough about the P.O.'s on their watch then why the fuck should the P.O.'s care. Nothing is going to change until the community starts getting a little more vocal than the silent that they are now. So every job you go to stress that. Inform every person who their alderman is and when their beat meetings are and let the overly promoted asshats explain what's going on, that's why they get paid so much isn't it??

Same thing in 014. Four, five and six cars down on most nights on 3rd and 2nd watches. Same goes for Friday and Saturdays. A few weekends ago when we were in the typical rap at 3am we pulled up 011 and they had ten cars available. This is not counting a fixed post on 1422r's beat per the alderman and the wagon serving as a beat car. Usually a car or two on a hospital run, crime scene etc and there are no cars available for hours on end. Burglary in progress calls getting dipatched w an hour and a half on them. Last Saturday when days took over there were six 1a jobs waiting with a few hours on each.

If you are in 016 and you are a sgt or p.o. on the street, you realize the inside bosses don't care about you at all. You run from one side of the district to the other to help your fellow officer. Your safety is not important to anyone other than your family and the other officers who back you up. Then you realize your only choice is to finally retire and if you live in 016, the next step is to move the hell out of there.

Ive grown up here my whole life ,but i cant stand to see my kids get cheating out of a normal childhood. The joy i see in there eyes when we visit my sister in elk grove and playing with there cousins in the front yard riding there bikes around town is priceless. Chicagos values are no longer MY values. Cities like pittsburg and Milwaukee faught and beat residency who had the same home rule clause we do ,making us the last major city with such a strict residency requirement.

Midnights suck big time no matter what district you're working. The D units are just short. That whole furlough by watch time didn't seem to help, so it has to be overall manpower shortages. Disporportionate staffing for ghetto reasons should not be acceptable.
Our tax dollars are increasing and our services decreasing.
Former 41st W Ald. O Conner was a dedicated Rahm kiss ass.
Hey Nappy...get on the ball, don't become a one-term too.
Police need time off and if they're getting it that's good.
We always tried to get along with as few as possible so long as the WC approved it.
Did Lyin' Ed put 6 recruits in 016 I guess that's a big frigging deal when 20+ retired.
When the jag-bags come creeping in the middle of the night, as they frequently do, the destination is 016.

Shouldn't working Midgnights be a Real Shift Differental (duty availability) ? Going from D1 to D1.5 at least.
Cut the Duty Avail entirely for all INSIDE administrative house mice to make Midnights more desirable for real police.
It may get more folks outdoors and on a Beat instead of a yearly diet of weekends & holidays off.

The bosses are letting manpower dwindle to nothing on district watches, but there's no shortage of manpower for tact and gang teams, area teams, Sat teams, all sorts of bullshit. Patrol is last on the list. And do you know why?

Because these coward cuckold bosses that keep insisting and bullying and shoving us unnecessarily into harm's way for numbers, these bosses know that they can't pressure and bully guys on a watch on bid to do activity. What leverage does a boss have on a veteran with close to 20 yrs on? Your car? Your start time?

But get a bunch of guys on a team or at an area, they're young and gullible, and easily bullied and pressured because GASP! OH HORROR OF HORRORS! they don't want to go back to the watch to push a beat car on midnights. So they continue to sell their souls and stick their necks out for petty favors, not realizing what they gain is not worth what they can potentially lose when working for these faithless coward bosses who will throw you under the bus and turn their backs on you under the slightest pressure.

Then you got the inside people and CAPS people who have to be taken care of no matter how low the manpower on the watch is.

The management of the City and Department can all go choke on their own lies and bile, for what they are doing to the coppers and tax payers of the few remaining decent areas of this city.

Us guys who have been pushing beat cars our whole careers, we aren't stooges or pasties or dogs for that matter, and we're not interested in making "more with less" work at the expense of our safety and mental and physical health. We signed up to serve but not to be sacrificed.

Where have all the police gone over the last 20 years?

That and Rahm The Sissy gettin' all pissy because
he just couldn't see how public safety can take up some
40% plus of the municipal budget with "nothing to show
for it."

"What the fuck kind of revenue are the cops generating
to justify taking up 40% of the city budget?"

You know damn well this is what Rahm was thinking as
he was exerting pressure for a favorable ruling so he
could Bogart a spot on the 2011 ballot.

A properly staffed, professionally run large urban
Police Department is worth it's weight in gold.

But it's the bean-counters who fuck everything up
by insisting on a "corporate model" being overlaid
on Policing. No matter how poorly it fits and no
matter how many lives can be potentially lost
and no matter how much crime can spiral out
of control as a result.

How vastly different would things be if Rahm
was man enough to check his propensity for
being hateful, intemperate, nasty and prideful?

It would have cost him nothing to have a sit-down
with some old, straight-shooter blueshirts to get
the lay of the land here.

But he was fixated on being the tough guy who took
on those "racist, too quick with their fists and guns,
aggressively air-horning" cops so he could catch a
nice bounce into national office.

Chicago is Rahm Emanuel's own personal
combination Vietnam and Afghanistan now.

He was seeking to destroy because The Police
embody an intangible something that he could
never be no matter how far he reaches and no
matter how much treasure he expends.

Heh... To paraphrase The Good Book:
"I'll pay money in exchange for some of
that power..."

The response?

"Thy money perish with thee..."
(Acts 8:19-21)

Police like you have no friends.
It's driving all the right people crazy
that Policemen are by and large
refusing to be willing sacrifices
for the false deities of a wrong-headed
agenda.

Who is going to file that lawsuit against the City for neglecting to providing proper police coverage. Sue the city for the damages when someone gets hurts

8/01/2016 04:51:00 AM

I like your attitude, but your intention is misdirected. You advocate for something that cannot be done. The only place to take this argument is to the elected officials and put so much heat on them they can't stand it. On one hand the black alderman call for more and more cops in their neighborhoods to kip a lid on the out of control violence and other bad behavior. Then the progressives complain that the black areas are " over -policed" and way too many cops around. Then ACLU does not want the police to make traffic or street stops in minority neighborhoods, then the people complain that the cops are not doing their jobs, then the mayor refused to back the police or to hire the number needed to quell the violence, then the new police superintendent is afraid of being on the hot seat so he prejudges every police action and has coffee and tea with anti police activists ( and gives them his cell phone #). How in the hell can you win up against this? But, these type of law suits go no where and would be tossed out of court. Sorry !!

In 015 way back in the1984-85 era, we were on the first watch. We had an awesome WC. This was during the hot summer. A lot of P.O.s requested Saturday night Sunday morning off. This WC granted the td slips if the P.O.s still working agreed to step up. We did. The midnight watch consisted of 2 wagons, 3 two man cars and two 1 man cars.we pulled it off. The bosses and P.O.s worked together for the good of the watch. I was and still am proud to be one of the P.O.s who worked that shift. Those who read this and were a part of this understand!

OT:

A Chicago agency that looks into police misconduct has booted one of its staff attorneys over social-media use, WBEZ has learned.

The Independent Police Review Authority forced chief investigative law officer Lindsay Wilson Gowin to resign after she exchanged dozens of private Twitter messages with a user of that network who claimed to be part of a drug-dealing gang on the city’s South Side.

In that conversation, which took place July 1, the gang member showed Gowin a video of a plainclothes officer frisking men in front of an unmarked police SUV. The gang member accused the officer of extorting “crack and cash” from the group “at least three times a week.”

“Wow,” Gowin replied. “Get his name and star number, and let me know. I will have him fired.”...

Sissac said IPRA did not have an issue with staff members gathering information through social media but said some of Gowin’s messages misrepresented her authority and the agency’s jurisdiction.

“I am now the head of investigations at the new police oversight agency,” Gowin wrote to the gang member. “This new agency is not fucking around.”

Sissac said the head of IPRA investigations is Fairley, not Gowin.

Gowin also asked the gang member whether it would be “feasible for investigators to do surveillance” as the cop engaged in the alleged extortion.

“Do you think he might come by this morning?” Gowin asked. “I might be able to put a team out there if someone could tell us where to position ourselves to see but not be seen.”

Sissac said IPRA is not authorized to perform surveillance or investigate corruption allegations.

You just sent in your county housing taxes. I know you are too busy and want to work all that overtime. You forgot to vote in the mayoral election. You did not vote in the FOP election and threw out the ballot with a paid stamp on it.

Sounds like you gave up. Don't worry that garage burglar will never be caught, the shoplifter will be I-bonded out, and the Armed robber will be released because the gun was a BB gun in a juveniles hands.

I went to my Alderman's office to complain they were sending our first watch patrol to the west side they said that was not true, I just love that that was there first response even though they obviously knew nothing about it. I told them it has been going on for months and that I had spoken to the officers personally( I was living in 017 working in 015} I did not say I was an officer.

They said they would make some calls. When I went back they said I was right and they were demanding that it stop. It did to some extent for a couple months then went back to business as usual. I complained again and they told me they can't control the police department,I laughed and said you did when I came in before why can't you just do it again. I took the trouble to come in you can't be bothered to pick up a phone. They called me a few days later and said the deployment was within the rules since the officers reported to their unit of assignment and also ended their tour there. I countered that that was a weak response since alderman can damn near get whatever they want and it seemed to me they were either lazy or in someone's pocket.

I related this situation to as many neighbors as I could and asked them to pass it on. The alderman for the first time ever barley won, maybe next time. Sick of these fucked up entitled assholes catering to a bunch of bottom feeder felons who can't even vote. Stay frosty.

According to you, there is not crime in the 16th district? That having 2 beat cars is enough for 32 square miles? How many cars are enough? Do you have any idea how long it takes to respond to a call if a car is at say central and foster and receives a call at Cicero and Belmont? Or Harlem and Belmont? The only assistance a car in 16th receive is from the surrounding suburbs, County police, state police and forest preserve police. Stick your "to be fair". They could put 60 cars in 15th and still not control crime. Imagine calling for a fight on the street, a battery in progress, even a bad traffic crash, no one to respond or wait 30-60 minutes?

You are in idiot of epic proportion! There are many 1st responders and countless city workers that live in 16 and pay quite a bit more in property taxes than most areas. These people that keep the city running deserve the police service that they pay for. Does the residents of the 16th district deserve less fire/ paramedic services because we don't use a CFD ambulance as transport to a hospital?

But not here in IL. Have you ever heard of our bought & paid for Board of Election Commissioners ever preventing/prosecuting an individual on parole from voting? No, they're too busy to check parolee's names against the voter rolls and now they are going to let people register&vote on Election Day! How are their poorly trained judges going to prevent fraud?
Madigan and his minions came up with a new form of vote fraud and all the lame stream media will do is ooh&ahh over the process. They are too dumb to realize that some voters will register out of three relatives houses and add on the place where they lay their head.

And of course the new voters will slow down the already slow process on Election Day. Vote early by mail or in person so you are not at the mercy of the incompetent election judges!

That would be a Federal Lawsuit - denial of one's Civil Rights - unequal protection under the law. (protection should be equal across the board -- it ain't)

Next case.

My mother was telling me the other day a neighbor and her called 911 on some dude running around trying to attack ppl. Sgt showed up with a PO (Guessing another reason they are down as everyone is 10-4?) but pretty much talked the victims out of paper and locking up the offender that was on scene. Then complained to the victims he had to drive 8 miles(really??) to get to the job and had 2 more stacked(but one victim over heard the PO talking about where to go to lunch). 


I'm sure if they were related to you, the dude would of got locked up...... He would of went in on a signed complaint and you still dodged it.....


Here we are in the ghetto and you guys are more worried about lunch..... Thanks for having our families back.

If the victims want someone arrested, they shouldn't let themselves be talked out of signing complaints. Maybe "complaining" about the 8 mile drive was actually "explaining" a slow response time. Are POs not allowed to discuss where they want to have lunch? Talking about lunch doesn't mean you're on your way to lunch. If my family member was the victim of a crime, yes, the offender would be arrested on signed complaints, because my family members would sign the complaints no matter who tries to talk them out of it. Do you have any other bitching and moaning to do about absolutely nothing, or can we worry about real problems now? Tell mommy and her neighbors to sign complaints next time they are victims of a crime. Oh yeah, and go fuck yourself.

what is up with the 29Jul6 "Medical Procedure" notice - " Members are informed that effective immediately, all officers returning from Medical, IOD or any Leave of Absence must successfully complete the POWER Test....Failure to complete the requirements will in assignment to Unit 376 until said member meets all requirements to return to a Full Duty status wtf ?

Well, that's one way to fill up the call back unit.
The other is fast eddie stripping every officer that does anything proactive.

But you should really stick to what you know at the Sec of State office and leave policing to us.

Dial 911! that's the answer. Tell citizens to dial 911 and DEMAND a police car for every little bullshit happening. like they do on the south and west sides. Call and DEMAND a car. No car? DEMAND A SUPERVISOR

8/01/2016 10:55:00 AM

Great idea, genius. Create a backlog of nonsense jobs for the already understaffed district to handle. That will surely solve all your problems. You don't get to demand a car when you call 911, and you don't get to demand a supervisor. You can request a car and request a supervisor. If you request a supervisor because you didn't get a car fast enough for your low priority, nonsense job, you're not getting one, at least not if the supervisors working in that district have any sense. If you want more police, you don't call the police for nonsense. You call your alderman and the media. You complain about real crime. You complain about a lack of safety for the citizens, your family, and the police trying to patrol your district with no manpower. Worry about the real problems and come up with real solutions, rather than being a petty bitch who creates more problems. If you're frustrated about the lack of manpower in the taxpaying districts, I can assure you those officers working there are even more frustrated. And your solution is to tie them up with bullshit all day and make the problem even worse. You don't have a lack of manpower because the police decided they don't want to work in your district, so why take it out on them? You have a lack of manpower because the city and the department have decided not to hire enough police, to try to do more with less, and to assign the bulk of their manpower to shitty neighborhoods full of criminals who pay virtually no taxes and contribute nothing to society. They're not going to decide to send you 50 more cops to patrol your neighborhood because of an increase in calls for service for nonsense. They look at the types of calls, not just the volume of calls. Your plan is flawed in so many ways that I question your ability to even read and comprehend this response, but I figured I'd try to get through to you anyway.

Saturday night 1600 himself was going around Four Franking noise complaint calls. He banged out about 5 in an hour around 9 pm. I wonder if he had a brat and a Coke at each block party?

Did the same in 019. But you'll never see him on a stop or take a hot call. I guarantee that.

They need to start with the bullshit west side narcotic saturation teams first. Nothing more than Mccarthy number generators for 189. On top of that, those idiots actually think they're in narcotics!
+++++

Relax robocop, none of them think they're the super impressive and actual Narcotics, nor do they give two shits. You, for some reason do. Why? Just another silent handjob worried about everyone else. Here's an idea, if you have a big enough problem, confront them. If not, how about supporting fellow officers? No, it's better to trash other officers, right?

Englewood (7th) district vs. Jefferson Park (16th) district staffing for 1st watch 31-Jul-2016

007 had all beat cars plus extra cars to total over 30 POs and Sgts.
016 had 5 beat cars, wagon, and 2 Sgt. riding with POs for a total of 14.

007 is 7.25sq miles vs. 016's 35sq miles. So 016 is 5 times the size of 007.
How many VRI cars were in 007 that night?
Lets compare taxes paid by residents of both districts.

I voted Garrido but the sheep just towed the party line. Time to vote out EVERYONE in office and on the benches and send the message that if you aren't for US and just for you and yours, WE will find someone else to replace you.

Time to fence 007 in and let it burn.

to be fair 016 isn't really the high crime area that needs 40 cars...most calls that come in are.... cat in tree, bee hive by front door and drunk polish men fighting in Portage park.


You are in idiot of epic proportion! There are many 1st responders and countless city workers that live in 16 and pay quite a bit more in property taxes than most areas. These people that keep the city running deserve the police service that they pay for. Does the residents of the 16th district deserve less fire/ paramedic services because we don't use a CFD ambulance as transport to a hospital?

Thank you! What a moronic statement from first poster. There is shit going on here, try telling that to all the people that have their cars broken into, or their CC is gone off the car in the morning, or a burglary to garage or home etc.
By the way, tired of seeing the pan handlers now at Devon and Central.
Civilians who like to read this blog: CALL 911 for them, DON'T give them a penny, TELL them to get the hell out of the neighborhood. Yes, you CAN do all three!

Hey SCC, an idea here. Maybe we can get the lineup sheets posted in the hallways in the stations sent to SCC and posted for review. Then with this tangible information a solid case can be made and proffered to the public on the misallocation of resources by the depart,ent.

It's an idea, alright... a fucking stupid idea. If you want to post your name, star number, what hours you work each day, which beat, and all the other information on those sheets, feel free to share just your info. The rest of us with a brain would rather not have all that info posted for the world to see. You want to make it easier for people to create false complaints, target police officers, and do all kinds of other nefarious shit with info they shouldn't have? Start by posting YOUR INFO. Idiot.

P.S. Do a unit summary during your tour and take a picture of the screen showing which cars are down. That gives the info you're after without opening the giant can of worms that your idiotic idea would.

OT -- Suicide By Instagram

Its practitioners are following a track, a meme, a behavioral pattern that's laid out for them by the "community."

Live and die by the cell phone, the goal being a "video." Hypnotized by that thing.

Someone else gets killed, you decide to follow in their path. And another. And another.

Lemmings over the cliff.

It's too weird.

And hours later she was dead: Mother posts series of chilling selfies of herself and son, five, from inside standoff with police that ended in her shot dead - over traffic violations

* Police appeared at Randallstown, Maryland apartment at 9.20am Monday
* They were serving arrest warrant for Korryn Gaines and another man
* She was wanted because she failed to show up in court for traffic charges
* When police entered apartment, Gaines barricaded herself inside with gun
* During stand-off, she posted two videos to her Instagram account
* One showed her son saying police outside are 'trying to kill us'
* At 3pm, Gaines was shot dead by police after she pointed her gun at an officer and said, 'If you don't leave, I'm going to kill you,' investigators said
* Five-year-old boy inside apartment was also hit but expected to survive

You obviously don't know some of your coworkers who openly brag that they're in narcotics and the next day you see them in uniform, in a marked car, doing dispersals in 011.

So before you check me, check your fucking coworkers.

Alderman John Arena's response on Jefferson Park Forward post on FB when someone questioned this:


John Arena According to the commander and Superintendant we have at least one car per precinct on all shifts. And, 6 new officers were just assigned to each of the the 16th and 17th Dist. Crime is down overall. We get runs on garage break ins and property crime. What we don't hear about is the impressive arrest rates. You have to look at the whole picture.
