I wish I had a twin. We could make merit Sgt then merit Lt. Then make commander all within a year of each other. Many promotions scream politics and clout. But if these two goofs aren't the poster children I don't know who is. Doj here's what's wrong with this department on a silver platter. And I am sure you will investigate and see what these 2 did that was so great to both be made merit everything together.

My theory for what it's worth. From the day they started with educational requirements we've been finished. We now get recruits who couldn't find a job in the field they got their degree in rather than people that wanted to be the police their whole life. Come promotion time, so many people way more qualified and capable can't move up because for whatever reason they didn't get the required degree. (Not trying to start any bashing or debating about they've had enough time, with reimbursement there's no excuse, etc... I've heard them all) Where this leaves the department is with a much smaller and less talented pool for both hiring and promotions. Come merit pick time this really comes into play when that person you know is a great boss and has the job knowledge to handle the next level can't be considered. Just out of curiosity, fire has the me too clause for everything yet no educational requirements. They get equal pay at the respective ranks, so why is that?

Anyone out there in the public or the media who thinks that the Chicago Police Department ever was run fairly and legitimately must also think that Hillary Clinton and her Bill never lie. The corruption starts at the top, at City Hall, flows down to the alderman, effects the entire Democratic party, all of whom try to influence hiring and promotions within the department. The culture of corruption cannot but help to effect the rank and file, I think without their conscious knowledge. They fall into a status of " this is how it is done and it is OK". They see the clouted passed over them for promotion, get the better assignments and if the clouted screw up, everything is covered up for them. The police are used to keep the lid on the poor sections of the city as these same sections are ignored by the democratic party until it is time to vote. Pro-active policing is dead for the next generation as the black community descends into a chaotic hell of violence. It seems that the black community is only satisfied when they see black faces in charge of everything. They ignore the blood running in the streets and seem to believe that only black people can solve the problems of black people. Everyone else is a racist. I actually have a very liberal friend who told me that he has never met a racist black person. How naive he is.

As a inspector he wrote up the abusers who deserved it. There has to be some standards on the street and a percentage officers really pushed the limit. He also gave passes to numerous officers. It is a shame that district sgts are afraid to have any standards at roll call. The young officers in 008 will benefit from his street experience.He should have been a commander years ago but the politics of Mccarthy was hard to overcome. The officers in 008 have nothing to fear and everything to gain.

Didn't Special Ed just get Rahm's "full support"?

What happens when the blood continues to flow?
No more tricks?
Will Special Ed be gone by New Years?

If Eddie wasn't black he'd be launched already.
He's the black face "the community" has "demanded" so Rahm will continue to pander and leave Eddie-the buffoon in charge.

Quite a list, shameful and rather, hmmm, diverse? No shortage of manpower at the failed top echelon.
Surely this will shake up the lack luster patrol slug.
Hey Special Ed here's a thought;
How about promoting the spirit of some flunky patrolmen out of the ghetto and into to 016 ?
Stay Fetal until moral improves.
Staying Fetal Saves Jobs.

I wonder if Rahm's arm up Special Ed's, the puppet, ass, bothers him much. So now we know why Special Ed was named Superintendent, skirting the entire process. He was willing to fuck over any PO that Rahm wanted on the chopping block. Special Ed is swallowing more than the Kool-Aid when it comes to Rahmbo. It is very apparent who picked all the new command staff. It must be nice having an Alderthief in your corner. Except for 2 of the named changes, the rest couldn't come up with a single intelligent thought if they were all in the same room. Too bad most have the fortitude to not be a politicians whore. Basically that is the only way to get to the top without having a fucking clue what you are doing. Fuck the morale of the troops, as long as the politicians look good and the police haters are happy. The more we fire, the better it is. At this rate the whole department may be fired within a year. Last one left, please turn off the lights.

An Officer is only as good as his leader, if you are under the command of know nothing, done nothing hack then Police accordingly. Don't be used by some hack who climbs the ladder on your good work, remember merit promotion is a friends and family thing and is rarely given to a working Cop unless he is shot in the line of duty or if he takes action in the saving of another Officers life or against an offender in the wounding or death of an Officer. I could present examples but prefer to leave the disparity in good working Police Officers and hacks alone.

All youse guys licking Pontecore's sack, here's a true story

While he was an inspector, he'd call for a meet with me (west side sergeant). He'd tell me he saw this car without a beat tag or this guy without the appropriate outer gear. Told me he wouldn't write up anything as long as it was corrected the next time he came through in a week or so. No problem I told him. I'll have the discrepancies corrected, and I did so, telling the guys, save me the paperwork and don't get caught stupid. Five days later, I get called into the WC office for a pair of Inspection Reports written up by guess who? Pontecore. So he lied to me and made me look like a jackass so he could issue some fly-by movers, and I still had to do the paperwork! He's lucky I didn't run into him again or I would have read him the riot act, seeing as we worked together in Marquette 20 years ago. That's not how he was brought up, but he drank the 35th street bullshit water.

Yes. You can do it.

I've tried making FOIA requests to CPD for years with no success. The FOIA section will just ignore your request, and then you will
need to appeal CPD's no response (denial) to Lisa Madigan (PAC), who will then ask Legal Affairs for a response to your appeal. Legal Affairs will then just lie and say a response was sent without proof, and the PAC will then close out your appeal, while CPD laughs, and you get NADA! It's a flawed system. I even went to Matt Topic for help, but he was scared of CPD and refused to take my case.

I even tried to get Steve Georgas' CR; FOIA claimed the investigation was still open by IAD! That's a lie!

Long live Ralph Price's Venga Boys!

After he was done boo hooing and abusing the medical because he wasn't made the commander of 012 he held his breath until they moved him. Now he's a big city inspector and where does he decide to feast? You got it ball licker, 012! Now if he had a problem with McCarthy or Staples he should have stood up and sounded off like a man. Instead he trolled the parking lot and wrote up 9161's that he knew, including one guy that was dropping his mother's car at the dealer. Stay off the blog Ronny Boo Hoo.

He's not, so much, arrogant as he is kinda clueless, and a BIG company man. Maybe aloof is a better word. He was a caps Sgt. in 019, then made Lt and, at some point, ended up downtown. He became part of the CompStat thing under McCarthy and had a whole 10 gallon cooler full of the company Kool-Aid. Went back to 019 as XO and was all about the numbers. Remember, it was him, and Eli, at the helm in 019 when the mass exodus occurred. A lot of people thought it was going to get better when he got there. Instead, it got worse, thus, the exodus. I do have to agree with you though, Hoot and Lr. G are top-notch.

Pontecore is a tool

Larry watson pulled out of captains class but never sworn in as capt, he will retire a Lt. Kevin johnson went through capt school but made Cmdr before capt so he will retire a Lt as well.

Sanchez is a lot like other lts that worked at Homan, smartest guy in the room, just ask them, right Mattie boy.

Crystal good luck 002

Angarone isn't he about 70? Let that unit run rampant, maybe there party days will be over

My theory for what it's worth. From the day they started with educational requirements we've been finished. We now get recruits who couldn't find a job in the field they got their degree in rather than people that wanted to be the police their whole life. Come promotion time, so many people way more qualified and capable can't move up because for whatever reason they didn't get the required degree. (Not trying to start any bashing or debating about they've had enough time, with reimbursement there's no excuse, etc... I've heard them all) Where this leaves the department is with a much smaller and less talented pool for both hiring and promotions. Come merit pick time this really comes into play when that person you know is a great boss and has the job knowledge to handle the next level can't be considered. Just out of curiosity, fire has the me too clause for everything yet no educational requirements. They get equal pay at the respective ranks, so why is that?

8/19/2016 08:22:00 AM

I agree with the fact that educational requirements and merit promotions began the biggest and most rapid downfall of cpd. The rules changed in the early/mid 90's, and at that time, every sworn member of the department should have been grandfathered in to be allowed to take a promotional exam and get promoted without having the educational requirements. I completely disagree with the tuition reimbursement for several reasons, such as cops wanting to work desk jobs or specific hours so they can attend class or study for exams. No one comes on this job to be the police anymore, they come on this job to get a free masters or a doctorate or become a fkg lawyer. Just my opinion...

Jimmy O'Donnell was the Commander of 008 during the Van Dyke shooting. He stood around shooting the shit with Captain Dennis Walsh then went home BEFORE everything was brought into the area. He wasn't interested in what was going to happen at the area that night with McNaughton running the investigation. He should have been there for his guys, if for nothing more than moral support. Now 4 of his officers and 1 sergeant are stripped and will soon be fired. How do you reward such loyalty? Promote him to Deputy Chief the SAME day his guys are sacrificed in the name of politics. He also has been on extended medical for the better part of the last year. I guess being a model patient and keeping all of your appointments at the medical section now qualifies you for a promotion. By the way, the 5 former members of you command are still waiting to hear from you after getting stripped.

Wow staples again. Never met a boss who was that useless and still keeps getting promoted. Just look what she did in 012.

She's a really nice person and There is no denying Staples has some loyal worshippers! I think some of her minions would go to jail for her- they are blind to logic with loyalty!!!! it's crazy how she manipulates people to do her dirty work and I never met somebody who couldn't stop talking about how hard she works.

As for the D unit, she'll be fine. She will surround herself with smart people who she will forget about when she becomes the first female superintendent.

8/19/2016 07:29:00 PM

She'll be fine in the D-Unit now. She has Duffin in Area North, Deenihan in Area Central and in Area South she has..... OK, MAYBE, she wont have it that easy....

Did you whippe your lips after sucking all that ass? R.P. had mutton chops and a goat tee all longer than a 1/4 inch for years in rebellion to facial hair order but became the king of writing up officers for facial hair? Apperently ass suck has no problem with hypocrisy and neither did R.P.

George Devereux wasn't merit anything until Captain. He's a Police Officer 1st and treats people with dignity. Of all the bosses working today, he is a standout. George deserves everything that has come to him after years of working at a high level. Every once and a while they get it right, and this is certainly the case with Deputy Chief George Deveraux.

Staples never does anything but, doesn't bother anyone. So, if you need anything don't count on her. She's like the ghost that exists but, you never see. I forgot how the lady looks like because she doesn't go around to see the patrol officers that serve under her, she only bothers with the ass kissers that work in the office with her.

I worked for Melissa in Area Four when she was a Sergeant and when she was a Lt. She never asked anyone to do anything that she would not do herself. In fact, she was out there with us fighting the good fight. I will not ask anyone to like her if they choose not to, but I will ask that you respect her because she is the "real deal".

True. Guy never was a merit hack like the rest of these people. He still knows how to be the police also. People change when they get this high in the dept. Nobody stays the same forever. GD Will change too. It is what it is. Problem will be how much someone is willing to change. Some will wear a wig and lipstick while other basically say F-off.
