Time to Remove the Posters

Does every station still have those "Earned, not Given" inspirational posters on the walls near the locker rooms and other places.

Anyone feeling inspired lately?

Granny Clampett certainly didn't "earn" that uniform. Neither did J-fled or McCompStat. It's obvious the Department is handing it out to any carpetbagger that serves the political order.

It's a total disgrace! makes me sick to see some total stranger come to town and get handed our uniform. This is just more proof that the CPD is a joke. How embarrassing. All the many years on the streets of Chicago wearing the uniform and she gets off a plane, gets handed a huge salary and then puts on our uniform without ever spending one day on the street. Can't she just wear business attaire? And we're supposed to so proud of the uniform? And Yes, the BS "Earned not Given" (has no meaning anymore) signs are still up. Saw it in the academy and in my district the other day. Sad

It's not like TV. You don't just transfer to a new city and start working as a sworn police office - in uniform no less. There is a certification process. Did she, and her girlfriend ( the one we just gave a title and an large amount of money to) go to the academy and pass the State test?

I know that's usually done with a wink and a nod, but we are all legit these days, right?

How can anyone look at that stage of alleged command staff and take our department seriously? It is a mock of life itself. Much like how this city is with Rahm, how the courts will be with Foxx and how the country will be with Hillary. Every American that let this happen, especially Chicagoans, should hold their fucking heads in shame. I am angered, depressed and afraid of what our society has become. Ignorant, leftist, selfish and un-American views are running rampant and are the new norm. I can only hope the creators of this mess are the ones who suffer victimization at the very hands of the barbaric criminals they enabled. The real patriots of society and this country do not deserve the current state of affairs and the jeopardy they face.

All your 60' and 70's comedy stars are coming back. We should do an Oprah "Where are they now segment?" We have Re Run, Granny(whew doggy), if Tom Selleck were short, fat, totally not athletic and ugly we have "Iron Mike" flavor savor and all.
Rahm could even be Tattoo from "Fantasy Island."
Hey, Tyler Perry, look up an appropriate Biblical Verse and U have a show! It's both exciting and new, so climb aboard with this cast of characters. The Units all have their versions of "Charlie's Angels" so at least Our Department can rival any other's with casting choice.
Only thing The CPD has left is promote Bozo and Cookie. I know, I know, that happened awhile ago.
God knows it did.
Remember "Happy Jack" from Mids in 019? Recontact him cuz "Cannon" will make another appearance as well. This list goes on, but The Bizarro World Show with Tom Selleck and "Iron Mike" would be the one Aaron Spelling would want to produce.
Is Chuck Lorre available? This would be a comedy that would surpass "Big Bang" if they'd just get together and let it ride.
Whew Doggie, I'm excited!

I stopped going to grab up awards about 10 years ago.

recovering a stolen car with a gun in it with NO ARREST.
Then the asshat white shirt was treating me like i was a freshman in high school looking me up and down in uniform.
I still get the awards about a month letter in the department mail and they end up in a drawer with piks of the ex wife.

Ask any person you say was your friend who has been stripped or fired and ask them did those awards save your career?

Ask anyone at 311 if any boss said stay at your district you have so many awards?

When you fill out that merit package for Detective does anyone care what awards you have and actually read them?

If you are NEW to the job the family will enjoy it.

Stay FETAL and the sad thing is you will still somehow get an award.

I choose to disregard anything she says. I would love to see her perform a traffic stop late Saturday night in Roseland, Englewood or Austin on an SUV packed with drunk and high jagoffs. I'm sure all the occupants would show respect and comply. (I'm also selling oceanfront property in Arizona.)

12:20 AM - Remember the O. W. Wilson Auditorium at our old HQ (1121 S. State)? There was a small display and there was an old leather folder with Wilson's Supt. star. He never wore the uniform but everyone knew he was the HMFIC! We can thank another FLOP President, Mark Donahue, for telling Jodi Weiss that it would be OK with the rank & file if he wore the CPD uniform after he passed the state training board exam. Another example of how Lodge 7 presidents are more concerned with their own ego and career instead of the membership.

Nope you are wrong about this. He made Lieutenant off the test. Like him or not those who know him know he was a hard working South Side ghetto copper who did a good job wherever he was so he got ahead. He never had the ambition to become Supe but here he is so I'm sure he's trying to do the best he can under these fucked up circumstances. As for his girlfriend he wasn't the Supe when she was in that study group and had nothing to do with it. She wasn't given the answers to the test but I'm sure that whole group was told what to study.

Is she the appointed KGB agent making sure the party mandates are followed? What a joke.
Chicago, it seems, has always had problems but the police were still men that sought out the criminal element and did not have to reign in their curiosity when something "just didn't look right".
But now, lead by the non-qualified toeing the party line, you're about to hit rock bottom.
I never saw Chicago at it's best, but I did see it before the worst.

Get over the uniform crap. There's a 30? hour course that cops with experience in other jurisdictions/states can take to become certified in Illinois. I don't recall the CPD academy as being that tough to graduate from. In fact I remember it as being easier than Army Basic training where people were basically pushed through.

Now I didn't like the unfrozen caveman SUP or he who drinks too much and kills streetlights, but once they got certified by the state I had no problem with them wearing the uniform. I don't know anything about granny, but if she took the course she should be allowed to wear the uniform and carry a shield.

Complaining about this is like complaining about the food on the Titanic.

Remember most cops in this country don't necessarily go to an academy specifically geared/limited to their department. Mostly just big city cops and some State Police departments do that.

I'm retired, but I'd have no problem with some "lateral" officers coming to Chicago with maybe a short academy course dealing with the specifics of the CPD. You could use the manpower and perhaps the different perspectives would be helpful.

From a Citizen: S.C.C., I suspect that Granny Ratched will not be long in union with C.P.D. She was a Five-Alarm Fuck Up in Spokane--were her legal troubles ever reckoned, or was her big bag of funky laundry swept into some dark hole by a sawed-off, effeminate Ballerina? She'll do the same thing in Chicago. Once a fuck up, always a fuck up.

And if I may, S.C.C.: Jesus H. Christ. I take one look at that photo of Granny Ratched, and two things occur: one, I vomit; two, I think to myself: this pathetic Bolshevik nanny in the cheesy John Denver specs is going to take on 6'+, 250 lb. thugs in Chicago's roughest neighborhoods??!! I know, I know--you won't be seeing Granny walking a beat.

Blue Shirts, take it from the bona fide community members--as opposed to "the communerty (sic):" let Granny Ratched lead by example, and until that happens, Stay Fetal--especially in places where you are not wanted or welcomed, a.k.a., "the communerty (sic)."

She'll fuck up everything she touches then she'll sue the city for millions claiming "Hostile Work Environment" or "You're Picking on me Because I'm a Woman" or some other bullshit claim. And, rather than telling her to pound sand the city will pay her off just to make her go away because even the Eunuchs at City Hall will realize she's painfully and dangerously incompetent.

You guys are fucked and we don't EVER-EVER want her within 1000-miles of Spokane for the rest of her worthless life.

What about the State requirements for these bosses that come from other states?
I recall that when MMM was hired, (he was never the police anywhere), the state waived some requirements for him.
Un-freaking real!!!

Generally, in Illinois lateral transfers are not allowed, usually because of the pension systems, they cannot be combined or transferred. You can be certified as a police officer by taking some weekend training courses offered by the state. I have no objection to an outsider wearing the uniform as they were police officers in previous jurisdictions. I do object to someone coming in from the outside and making things worse. But, honestly, I don't think any outsider could do a worse job then the current crop of command staff who are mostly political merit hacks.

Nope you are wrong about this. He made Lieutenant off the test. Like him or not those who know him know he was a hard working South Side ghetto copper who did a good job wherever he was so he got ahead. He never had the ambition to become Supe but here he is so I'm sure he's trying to do the best he can under these fucked up circumstances. As for his girlfriend he wasn't the Supe when she was in that study group and had nothing to do with it. She wasn't given the answers to the test but I'm sure that whole group was told what to study.

Nope, your wrong, merit hack since chevrons. No amount of corrective innuendo from you can disspell the truth about a political hack. I had to reject most of his reports as a P.O. The man is unable to write himself out of a paper bag let alone make a linear decision that involed Department G.O.'s and chapter 38 (for you young un's that's ILCS 720 now).

Every Chicago PO who worked the streets, fought their asses off and worked holidays and other life events away from their family has earned the right to wear the uniform and be recognized as a sworn member of this department. Every person who has never been a beat car, the scene of a PO shot or fought their ass off with some asshole who had no intention of going to jail, does not deserve to wear our uniform. It is a slap in the face that outsiders are brought in to make policy changes without knowing anything about being a cop in this city. Special Ed does not belong heading this department after selling his soul to the Tiny Dancer. He is a 2 faced piece of shit. He complains that PO's are second guessing shooting someone who is intent on trying to kill you, but he opens past shooting investigations where the PO was found justified in shooting. Does our asshat superintendent think he is bullshitting anyone.

I know you've heard this before, but take it from a North West guy; Fitzpatrick is bad ju-ju.

She'll screw up everything she touches and within two years she'll slap the city with a "Hostile Work Environment" or "They're Picking on me Because I'm a Woman" lawsuit or some other BS claim.

The Eunuchs at City Hall will pay her off just to get her out of town because even those turds will realize what an incompetent joke she is.

Good luck CPD. We never EVER want to see her within 1000-miles of Spokane for the rest of her life.

You don't have to look all the way to the top to see that uniform is given out to anyone willing to pay uniform store prices. Look at the academy and the recruits that show up and the PPO's that graduate?? No shortage of substandard employees, not just police skills but piss poor work ethic. It has been this way for years and slobs continue to be slobs. Male, female, white, black, whoever, the biggest of the whiny bitching jagoffs are the do nothing slobs. How many house mice can you think of that have made a career being a house mouse??? Every last cop can think of a handful off the top of their head. If you have a problem thinking of a half dozen, well odds are you are one of the hideouts.

They just continue to beat us down from all sides. "Bosses" that think they earned something or deserve something because of some birthright, they can get fucked. The right last name, the right drinking buddy, the right reverend, the list goes on.

The only thing you can do is look out for yourself.

Her accredation from Washington is transferable to Illinois? She went through an accredited police academy and she is good here. WTF is wrong with you? The fact is we have no program for accepting lateral transfers accepted by the CPD. Now that asshole in City Hall can make her a political appointee and any other fool he wants to but she does not have to be nor does she have to be shown any respect by the rank and file. Her job was granted as a political appointment and I am not exactly sure why. I would like to know why she is a made member of the CPD? I would like to see some "journalists" examine her history in Washington and try to come up with a reason why in the hell she is part of the command structure of the CPD, and her girlfriend too. Start with the Mayor, ask him and make him explain what the hell this woman is doing here. If you review public history on the net, she does not seem to have a resume of accomplishment.

From a Citizen: S.C.C., I suspect that Granny Ratched will not be long in union with C.P.D. She was a Five-Alarm Fuck Up in Spokane--were her legal troubles ever reckoned, or was her big bag of funky laundry swept into some dark hole by a sawed-off, effeminate Ballerina? She'll do the same thing in Chicago. Once a fuck up, always a fuck up.

And if I may, S.C.C.: Jesus H. Christ. I take one look at that photo of Granny Ratched, and two things occur: one, I vomit; two, I think to myself: this pathetic Bolshevik nanny in the cheesy John Denver specs is going to take on 6'+, 250 lb. thugs in Chicago's roughest neighborhoods??!! I know, I know--you won't be seeing Granny walking a beat.

Blue Shirts, take it from the bona fide community members--as opposed to "the communerty (sic):" let Granny Ratched lead by example, and until that happens, Stay Fetal--especially in places where you are not wanted or welcomed, a.k.a., "the communerty (sic)."

If this picture is the new face of the CPD it's ooooooover. Amazing how liberals and the media who support 7% of the population(the criminal element BLM included) of the city of Chicago can change policy that liberates and empowers criminals vilifies and condemns police officers at the expense of the very people the city is entrusted to provide service and protection for. The new motto for the city of Chicago should be "Where we serve and protect all who break the Law". Come on down to our living hell where criminals,lawbreakers and illegal aliens are treated like royalty. These so called leaders are deplorable and doing the devils work daily.

By what right does this Kirkpatrick get to wear our proud uniform in which courageous, honorable officers have made the ultimate bloody sacrifice.

Imagine her "taking a stroll" in 007 or 011. The gangbangers would never respect Kirkpatrick. They'd laugh their asses off. 10-1 bait for sure.

I'm retired, but I'd have no problem with some "lateral" officers coming to Chicago with maybe a short academy course dealing with the specifics of the CPD. You could use the manpower and perhaps the different perspectives would be helpful.

Yes we could use the MANPOWER. With what they're paying her and her partner we could probably
hire at least 4 POs. This is a waste of manpower. Enjoy retirement.

Leo might have been a clouted ass clown, but he always had the best intentions on doing proactive police work and putting guys in jail. He did a decent job at taking care of the guys that worked for him and I never had an issue with him. There are plenty of bosses that came through Chicago that never did a lick of work in their entire career and never even tried to.

Maybe, but as a former suburban office. I was told CPD is so unique all sworn offers have to start over after attending the year long academy to wear the uniform with pride. Also, you can forget anything you learned anywhere else as CPD is so unique, and the list goes on. NO sworn person of any rank should come without first going thru the cpd Academy. After all, this is why we have no lateral transfer system. EVERYONE starts over when they come to CPD. Anything else you learned Anne is useless here and you should make recruit pay.

This is what the background investigators and academy personal told me... all skills are non-transferable.

Exactly why our Fraternal Lodge is a joke and not a Union. They can beg for scraps from the city all they want but end of there day there is zero repercussion. Our contract expires and we work under it with no interruption until a new one is agreed upon. The FOP can "haggle" but it is a give and take arrangement and they can't just walk away. The best thing they provide the membership is a legal defense fund, unless you like bad pizza and beer.

Illinois is 48th out of 50 states for mandatory law enforcement basic training. 48th! If you are certified in any one of the 47 states with more stringent qualifications than Illinois, all you need to do to be certified here is take an Illinois law update course on line from the training board, and do your basic firearms qualification. Sad, but true!

ISP is mostly a bunch of glorified DUI /Traffic units, nice to hear they have a sweet academy. Comparing Schmitz who was an exempt in a police department of 9500 officers to Granny Clampett and the Spokane force of 310 officers is asinine. This woman got her job by threatening a lawsuit with Rahm, which is awesome and horrifying at the same time. She should dress like Ellen Degeneres and wear some chuck taylor's on those sexy ass feetses. WOOO!!
