Bug on the Wall

This could get interesting:
  • It would have been a good idea to put cameras on those working at 35th Street. But that has not prevented the IG from actually uncovering proof of a cheating scandal on the Lieutenant's exam. Yes folks, it is true, and when it is made public, the fall out will be significant. Its far reaching up and down. Some will be charged criminally because they have profited from the cheating and some will be fired. If you accepted the promotion, and you cheated, you are getting locked up. If you cheated, and not yet gotten promoted, you will be fired.

    Much of what has been assumed here is true, some is not. What is true is that the cheating occurred, proof has been obtained and heads will roll.

    bug on the wall.
So the allegation of money changing hands might some truth to it? And that they used Department e-mail to set up the study group and payment?

do you think some of the old 11th district tact team would care to rat out the son of a former superintendent, who shared the actual test with his colleagues the night before the sergeant exam? seeing that con artist go down would be more gratifying.

Can't wait for the other shoe(s) to drop. Keep us informed cuz this won't be regularly reported on Chicago media. Got to protect Rahm at all cost and of course Rahm will feign disgust, demand those involved be fired and/or be charged criminally, and demand that a Blue Ribbon Panel lead the search for the next super from outside the city. And as always, exempts and those connected will be allowed to retire with whatever pension monies they have coming. The rest will be thrown to the wolves to satisfy the mob.

Please please let this investigation come forth. Several of us have been holding our breath waiting to exhale when the investigation is finally done and the corruption is exposed.
The corrupt bounch of cheaters should all be terminated with extreme prejudice. It is a shame the lame duck media has not given this more attention. If you think about it the cheaters have all illegally earned well over $12,000 in stolen money!

And most of them had the nerve to be walking around bragging on themselves and acting untouchable because they are members of UnNoble or involved with a deputy chief.

I say hooray for the IG the only city department left with some ethics!!!

If Obama's DOJ was actually interested in improving the Chicago Police Department, this is where they would be looking. They should do everything they can to root out corruption, incompetence, and mismanagement in the CPD. With competent leadership, the CPD would root out any racism and abuse itself. Instead the clouted clowns criminally cover up for each other, just ask Koschman's Mother.

Clean up the leadership, and they will make the CPD great again.

Cheating has been going on forever ! It s a way of life in this town . It's accepted culturally . If the IG went into the past sergeants exams they would find numerous cases of cheating all the way up from superintendents sons to their drivers . How many girlfriends and relatives of exempt personnel were allowed to view the test prior to being given it . I would be shocked if anyone were fired or incarcerated . I have a suggestion . Make every person who passed the last sergeant and lieutenants tests from 1998 until the present take a lie detector test to ensure they were not cheating . Don't fire them or impriaon them just demote them . So everyday while their pushing a beat car everyone would know exactly who and what they are . Don't let Ernst and Young off the hook though . They are as crooked as anyone else !

To the person "with this inside info", you forgot to end your post with....

We all know no one is getting locked up for this, let alone fired. They were black and in this current country we live in that's all you need to be to untouchable. Remember black lives matter.... also, this behavior has always gone on i this dept. look at certain boss holes kids who are the dumbest rocks but manage to make rank?! Really do you think they did it legit?! Yea right. Look at what the "Greek mafia" has done on this job for each other. We could go on and on, Irish, poles, Italians.... they all did it and got away with it. Look at Daley and his evil doings... still doing them. So you want to blame someone... blame the assholes that started the mind set in this city that it's ok to, lie, cheat, and steal. what needs to be done is a total gut of the command staff top to bottom. The clean house and start over, cheaters locked up and fired... hahaha that's rich. Go back to whatever inside desk you have and stay quite unless you can actually name names and provide details pertinent to the supposed cheating that will actually help stop any further damage to the dept. all in all just another gossip post. It's a shame that no one outside cares about what they did during that exam, yes it was wrong, yes they need to be dealt with, but it will never happen. Sad but true; so move along and stay fetal... oh yea Rham, the clintons, and the kingfish in the WHITE house are all to blame before anyone else.

With the announcement of the city hiring 500 new officers, the city stated that the retirement rate is between 200-300 officers a year. I really doubt that number is even close to the truth. Add the number of actual retirements with those that are leaving this job for other opportunities and the number I bet is closer to 500 this year. We are not keeping up with the attrition rate. If they promote 100 sgts, 50 lts and 200 detectives, that will leave the patrol division with 350 less officers to man patrol cars. I know we are desperate to promote detectives but tell the truth. Retirements are at the highest rate in years. It would be nice if the FOP would reveal the retirement rate for 2017. Also consider the quality of new recruits with lowered standards and the quality of training. Sad

Hey SSC I love this site but you must be drinking the cool-aid on this one. Do you remember how everyone was saying that the Head of the FBI, James Comey, was beyond reproach? Do you remember how the media went ga-ga over the fact that he was the best Director the FBI ever had? Sorry, Joe Fergusson is comparable to James Comey. His report will state something like this: We have investigated this allegation very thoroughly and although the appearance that a group of individuals' who attended a closed class, did in fact pass the test resulting in these people getting promoted, no substantial evidence could be found that there was in fact cheating. The appearance that these individual's attended this class and got promoted does suggest that cheating occurred. Although there was a closed group of individual's who got promoted from this class, we can not find any substantial evidence that the test questions were given out to this group. During this investigation we interviewed all of the participants of this group and no one came forward and admitted taking part in these allegations. In the future, we recommend that no exempt personnel conduct a promotional test class. Joe Ferguson is James Comey, he was given a offer he could not refuse, maybe not in a airplane on a tarmac, but he was given the order. Sorry guys, NOTHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN.

Worth repeating:

OT - anyone really want the lt.'s exam cheatfest investigated? Here's what you need to do.

First you must be non-black. Sorry, but that's the only way this will work. Second, you must have taken both parts of the exam and not yet been promoted.
Qualify?
OK, next go down to the EEOC and tell them this:

1 The department has discriminated against you in the promotional process because of your race
2 a chief (go ahead and name him) in the department ran a study group open only to members of the departmen who belong to a racist fraternal organization of which the accused chief is also the president
3 as a result, members of that organization, who are also department members, received information that gave them an advantage in the promotional process over similarly situated, non-black members
4 the department became aware of the discrimination and did nothing to stop the process or investigate the allegations

That's it. This will get you in the door. Because this is a class discrimination, the EEOC will be forced to at least do a cursory investigation. As they have subpoena power, they will be able to compel testimony from everyone, including the dirtbags who have already retired. This is your best bet for a legit investigation. Good luck!

The only way this sees the light of day is if the non-cheating sgts start a class action lawsuit and subpoena any evidence the IG has. Otherwise this will just disappear. And the only way the public will care about it is after a catastrophe occurs and one of the cheaters ends up in command. The resulting chaos caused an inept cheating boss may make people realize what's at stake when u promote these kinds of people

While you guys are at it let's go back some years to a certain tactical team getting most of its team members promoted by "score" and ranking under 300. A team from 011.

They had a secret study group too.

What will out 3rd watch LT (RM) in 008 do when the IG releases his findings and recommendations to Rahm? When this gets released at 9am I am calling in to take emergency CU just to avoid his constant WTF comment out of his mouth.

Well(cheater) RM. It was fun while it lasted wasn't it? Maybe you can go back to Joliet.


R.M. did not cheat. R.M. is a stand up guy from 011. Saw him last week and laughed about the test. He was one of the few who did not cheat. If you can't get along with him you must be a dog ass.

If this happens, how many people are we talking about ?

I worked with a guy who if he was told to do something he didn't want he would get on the phone to his clout and then hand the phone to the supervisor so he could be told the score. That asshole is an exempt now. I have seen to many of them to count who have 2 minutes on the job and demand days or desk duty, tac, whatever and get it through connections and think nothing of it and our oblivious to the fact that their peers hate them because hey, there's another gravy train around the corner for them and fuck the rest of us.

That's the small stuff that feeds and grows the patronage beast that leads to all the undeserved assignments and promotions by unqualified people that take money and opportunity out of the pockets of the unconnected.

I spent 20 on the street before I got promoted, and then I was assigned to the farthest least desirable spot they could think of. I have groused for years about "merit" secret study groups, R&D insiders and all the other political BS on the job when it comes to promotions and assignments. Being a lifelong Chicagoan I thought I was prepared for all the dirty dealing but it was more corrupt than I had imagined.

These shit bags like hide behind the statement "you would do it if you had the chance" . That statement makes them feel better about their undeserved path on the job but they know that we know that they are paper tigers.

Please don't make the argument that this goes on in most jobs. If you work at an insurance company and the president gives your promotion to his new son in law that's the risk you take in the private sector. Civil service is supposed to be legit.

So I say OFF WITH THEIR HEADS!

I hope you are right but Ferguson is a pos sycophant to Rahm. He plays this outfit wannabe game and he will do whatever Rahm tells him to do. This I fear will not go public and the lieutenants will get off. I'm sure davina from iAd cheated too.

A bit off topic. The department screwed up their new summer mobile detail by starting it mid period.

That's it. This will get you in the door. Because this is a class discrimination, the EEOC will be forced to at least do a cursory investigation. As they have subpoena power, they will be able to compel testimony from everyone, including the dirtbags who have already retired. This is your best bet for a legit investigation. Good luck!


9/19/2016 10:50:00 AM

It's all been done. There is a named outcry victim/witness. There is evidence in the e-mails that were collected from the Department e-mail system. There is a co-operative witness in the first woman called down. She squealed like a pig and rolled over to get the first seat on 'the bus'.

They have their airtight and embarrassing case, but there is a problem with the make up of all of the offenders. There is a also another problem with the same group having the answers to the Sgts test, another scandal. All of you citizens that pay taxes are the ones that should be mad about this.

So much for the best and the brightest. Rumors of a few select individuals getting help on previous tests was bad. We are now talking about an entire group being given answer sheets so even a moron could get promoted. That is who will be leading YOUR Police department. That is who will be responsible for your safety and the one that will be responsible for the lawsuits on down the line.

I assume this will end up in the same hole the Clinton scandal will end up in. She perjured herself. Even if they can't prove any of the other charges, she did that on national television in front of the whole Country. That is without question and that alone should not only put her out of the Presidential race, it should put her in prison. Nixon lied about his knowledge of a burglary and was rightfully shown the door. Everything she has done is a thousand times worse.

Where is our Country's moral compass? How can we just take this? Where is the outrage?

There's an investigation going on here and in light of the Kochman debacle and manipulating that outcome, I would be wary if the IG is willing to manipulate this one in favor of city hall. The big difference here is that there is a whistleblower or two along with electronic messages, emails, texts, etc. Some savy reporter ( not from mainstream media mind you) can FOIA everything and questions will roar on why this or that wasn't done. I'm betting on forced retirement to save face and not getting the black revs in an uproar. Don't expect criminal charges, it will all be based on rule and policy violations.

Like most every decent cop I talked to and as plenty of comments reflected on you blog, SCC, I don't see anything changing. There is absolutely no will to change things in this corrupt city, county and state. Sure, someone without clout will be used as a scapegoat and be punished for their behavior. They will be offered up to the gods of public relations and political expediency to make it seem like the brass and the mayor are doing something. HOWEVER, the clouted will be protected. The clouted in this town is what is wrong with it.

With exam scam, there are too many clouted on that list of lieutenants. NOTHING WILL HAPPEN. The IG is simply blowing smoke. He won't change a thing. The DOJ will protect the very same people, too. God help us all in this crooked city.

Worth repeating:

OT - anyone really want the lt.'s exam cheatfest investigated? Here's what you need to do.

First you must be non-black. Sorry, but that's the only way this will work. Second, you must have taken both parts of the exam and not yet been promoted.
Qualify?
OK, next go down to the EEOC and tell them this:

1 The department has discriminated against you in the promotional process because of your race
2 a chief (go ahead and name him) in the department ran a study group open only to members of the departmen who belong to a racist fraternal organization of which the accused chief is also the president
3 as a result, members of that organization, who are also department members, received information that gave them an advantage in the promotional process over similarly situated, non-black members
4 the department became aware of the discrimination and did nothing to stop the process or investigate the allegations

That's it. This will get you in the door. Because this is a class discrimination, the EEOC will be forced to at least do a cursory investigation. As they have subpoena power, they will be able to compel testimony from everyone, including the dirtbags who have already retired. This is your best bet for a legit investigation. Good luck!

Per Title VII of the Civil Rights Act of 1965 there are prima facie circumstances where you can bring an action for racial discrimination. Good luck with that if you are a white guy and here's why: Your race must have been hired/promoted at a rate 80% of the most dominant race. So if 20 blacks took the Lt. test, and 10 were promoted, then blacks have a 50% rate. 80% x 50% = 40%. SO if whites were promoted at less than 40% you have a case.

The ones who cheated will fade away...The ones responsible for cheating will retire and get a 2nd pension job. It's the Chicago way....The ones who didn't get caught and kept their mouth shut will get promoted meritoriously.

This is not a prima facie case, but a case that can be proven with evidence and testimony. Prima facie does not apply in this case. I'm not sure you know what it means.
