And Again....

It wasn't until 1930 hours that the decision was made to cancel all days off tomorrow. Someone commented:
  • The entire handling of the World Series "situation" went well beyond incompetence and awful leadership. The cancelling of RDOs for 01 Nov, and then the rescinding of the cancellation 6 hours later was inane at best. People cancelled scheduled appointments, arranged for child care that they then had to cancel, etc.. This was ignorant and insulting. the following was even worse.

    Issuing an edict that cancellation of RDOs on 02 Nov was "contingent" on the outcome of game 6 is an incomplete, insidious order. It should have been clearly outlined: Cubs win, days off cancelled. Cubs lose, days off not cancelled. What were they waiting for? The score of the game? The decision obviously was already made. The decision not to inform the troops was a conscious and deliberate ass fucking. This was either special Ed saying fuck you or Rahm saying fuck you. Doesn't matter either way, they left people hanging and treated the entire department, not wearing a gold star, like pieces of shit.
That has been the attitude of all the connected since the mistake of J-Fled. The federal outsider was brought in to stave off a DOJ takeover, and it happened anyway. Anyone with any sort of extensive and institutional knowledge was driven off, demoted, or told "your services are no longer needed" for whatever reason and now the Department is reaping what has been sown for the past decade.

No one is left who remembers how to write and execute an Event Order so that there are actual preparations in place. We should clarify that as "no one downtown." There are plenty of sergeants and lieutenants who remember and could do it, but they're not clouted, so they are ignored and dead-ended.

So are all you ass kissers finally done with the duty and dedication bullshit you've been spewing. Calling guys who are pissed..whiners and crybabies. Just so you're aware many guys and gals with 15yrs and more are tired of the bullshit. We held the shit together for years with no hiring. I will work when called upon and stay late when needed but this is bullshit, it's not an emergency. This is baseball games not Sept 11th. Could have easily gotten volunteers on rdos or volunteers for an extended tour. Unions fought for years for an 8hr day. This is a total disregard for its employees and American labor. Now you have overtired coppers preparing for a game 7 shit show followed closely by an election shit show. FOP better find multiple grievances to file or they should all resign.

Old retired guy here, You young bucks should do what we used to do ! Now with caller I D, don't answer the call. If you are RDO 02 Nov and they call you on 01 Nov with their stressful bull shit, don't answer the phone. You were under the impression that you were not going to work your RDO. If you do work today, show up your regular time !

These brainless fuck' are going to put you guys in ICU if you let them. Stress kills and the job without their shit is stress filled anyway.

I was a heavy hitter and had a blast on the street, I see you young copper' today and you are walking dead with conditions you have to work under. My prayers are always with all you street dogs who cannot catch a break from the jag off' running the dept and city hall.

FOP !! all their e mails show college' that you can attend and they can get a kick back from. Worse FOP staff ever now. They fucked us Medicare retired guys allowing the city to fuck us. Dean will be gone in a year or so and living the good life in his beach front home in California. Start a movement and get rid of FOP and go with the teamsters. They are totally legit now and know how to play hard ball with city. The FOP, if you let them will get 2 percent raise over 4 years and your will be paying for health insurance big time. Us guys on Medicare are paying 11 K a year thanks to FOP doing shit for us.

Why not just cancel the rdo's at the earliest time...then, if we come in and you don't need us, give us three hrs o.t. and send us home, or keep us the whole day to "fight crime", at least we can plan our lives.

Why do you need water and snacks to be given to you? What kind of entitled bullshit is this? You knew the hours you were working and you knew where you were working. What kept you from bringing your own snacks and water? How hard is it to find a place with snacks and water around Clark and Addison? Are you fucking serious? Supervisors told you to take turns buying what you need. What's wrong with that? Do you want daddy to go buy your snack packs for you? Should your supervisor feed you and put your water in a sippy cup for you? You were standing around "controlling" a completely non-hostile crowd, with plenty of time and access to get whatever food and water you needed. How do the whiny bitches like you survive at all? This department is an epic shitshow run by incompetent fucktards, but it's not their responsibility to feed and water the troops. You're presumably an adult. Start acting like one. I pray you never have to deal with an extended tour during a riot, with bad weather, in the ghetto, with a hostile crowd and actual danger. You wouldn't last an hour before collapsing into the fetal position, sucking your thumb, and whining for mommy. Pathetic.

Actually, the opposite is true. They have been elevated to this position because of their friendship with someone, the color of their skin or their allegiance to a key voting block (their sexual orientation). They believe high in themselves way too much.

Most of the upper echelon of the Department, despite all evidence to the contrary, believe they DESERVE this rank because of prior prejudices and they are the best. They believe this even thought they never themselves experienced these prejudices. In fact, they have been rocketed to the top because they are members of those protected voting blocks.

This is the biggest problem on the Department. The unqualified are running things. The qualified are taking a back seat or retired. The Mayor is responsible. Rahm continues to fiddle while Rome burns. Why haven't you, the voter, gotten rid of these clowns?

It's been said for years, jfed started the downfall by dumping the knowledgable bosses. And now we are left with incompetent bosses promoted well above their talent level only based on who they are connected too. The merit promotions have always been a joke and is blatant cronyism. DOJ wants to clean up the department start here.
Every order that comes out gets rescinded. We can't get one notice that has not been followed by a correction. Even the promotion listed are changed. And the brain trusts at 35th were originally going to gig people for missing VRI until someone figured out what was going on. It's just sheer stupidity.
And as far as days off cancelled some of us are going on 10 days working. Idiots!

Was on the job for the Bulls championships 4,5 and 6. The department was fully staffed at 13500 then and we had all days off cancelled and 12 hour shifts for 1st and 2nd watch. 3rd watch personal and all teams were put on foot posts throughout the city. We also had units like SOS running around as gas teams (ah, that was fun). This happened every potential clinch game all 3 years. The city was expected to erupt especially on the south and west sides probably similar to what may happen tonight with a cubs win. Yes, since then we had the Sox win it but compare the fanbase. We also had the Blackhawks win 3 but again look at the fan base.
With the weather being in the 70s the south and west sides will already be jumping, given a reason to "celebrate" it could be intense! Wrigleyville will make the pride parade look tame and the entertainment district of 018 will be worse than when the Hawks won each year. Bottom line is I would rather have everyone available on tonight for the safety of myself and my partners and I hope this is something we can all agree on. Maybe the Indians win and this is a moot point but if not let's focus on getting thru tonight safely instead of being bitter about our incompetent "leadership".

Downtown still can’t get it right. So many are merit and then anointed to command positions. Couldn’t pass the second part of the exam after getting coached a getting a sneak peek at the 2nd part of the written exam which determines ranking scoring order. Then you scratch your head and ask just how difficult is it to surround your command with some intelligent talent to get it right. Then take gold star credit self- promoting accolades for the successes.

On a national level, the democrat candidate for president got coached and was forwarded debate questions allowing her to crush Bernie Sanders and then use poll tested responses against Donald Trump. The democrat candidate gets the heads up on the debate questions just like certain lieutenant candidates received privileged courtesies to questions and appropriate answers prior to the actual test. Must be part of the democrat playbook of dirty tricks.

All the leadership in this department are afraid of making a common sense decision, they are afraid of there own shadow. The higher you get up in this department the more you forget what it is like to be a PO. Most of the leadership in this department needs in service training on leadership 101, but knowing how bad this departments in service training is it won't help. Canceling RDo's last minute is not good for your PO's morale. More then half the PO's have already stop doing proactive policing. You keep messing with the PO's changing start times, canceling RDo's and denying time off, your going to lose the rest of the PO's. Remember leadership you need us more than we need you. You need our activity to make you look good! We take care of those who take care of us! I have some glimmer of hope that the leadership will get there heads out of there asses, by seeing some recent people who have been promoted. And I repeat SOME promoted, some will still be same old useless leadership.

"There are plenty of sergeants and lieutenants who remember and could do it, but they're not clouted, so they are ignored and dead-ended."

— This is absolutely correct.
The Command Staff is loaded with tools that have been triple + promoted and never spent any quality time in a District, even as a patrolman.
Seems a lot of them are easily molded into spineless weasels, which probably is a prerequisite. Because you worked on so-and-so's Team, or went thru the Acad with, or had a great idea to screw over your peers does not make you a leader. These tools have spent way too much time in Units and out of touch with practicality.
I wouldn't blame anyone to armchair quarterback when you see a dysfunction Command structure...because you're on the streets everyday and not in a cubicle.

Not a cop: But it's readily apparent to this civilian that the leaders of the City and Police dept can't find their asses with a bright light, outside, in the middle of a sunny summer day...

However, that's par for the course with many organizations, including Corporate America. So do what we do in Corporate:

1) Realize that your bosses are morons... and so on up the chain...

2) Try not to schedule anything when you have an inkling that the Shit might hit the fan... The usual crazy holidays, playoff games if we win it...

Yes, I realize this is difficult to do - but if you can avoid it, it's worth it not to deal with the trauma and stress created by last minute schedule changes/unchanges...

3) If you're scheduled off - don't answer the phone. Keep that GPS location crap off at all times on your phone so no one can figure out where you were after-the-face (sans search warrant, of course).

Don't answer the emails.

When you come in for your next shift - if it comes up, say "Sorry, I was scheduled to be off way back in >date<, and I took off right after my end of shift. Never got any calls or emails... Just got back. What happened?"

4) If your company still has one of those 2-way pagers (that kicks back a ping when the message is received) - put it in the freezer when you're off-shift... Messages won't make it back out of the enclosed freezer because of a weak signal strength... So yeah, they sent the message, you never got it (until you took the thing out of the freezer)...

5) Get an el-cheapo pay as you go phone and give that # to work. Carry it at work. Have a personal phone for when you're not at work. Don't bring the personal phone to work (so there's no electronic traces of it being around the station). When you have days off - shut off the work phone, use the personal one...

Yeah, big PITA to be certain, but if it helps keep you destressed and sane in the face of moronic bosses - it's what ya gotta do!

The entire department flipped upside down and every police resource is tapped out and taxed, for what? A catastrophe, a natural disaster, a huge immediate threat? Nope….. All for a stupid couple game of baseball! Welcome to BIZARRO LAND. Murders, shootings, and robberies everywhere in city, but we are pathetic puppets for the Ricketts's family for a week. Could you imagine if a real incident requiring policing was actually necessary? The department administration is like the boy who cried wolf.

Clusterfuck? No leadership plan? No concise work plan or shift plan to accommodate lunch-breaks or just breaks?

The BIG question - as usual is - WHERE IS THE FOP???

What do you pay Union Dues for? This is pretty cut-and-dried. HEY- we have a contract!! Adhere to the Contract!!

OOPs - sorry, I forgot. This is a Cloutocracy. FOP leadership is just waiting for their "promised" merit promotion for just standing there and keeping their mouths shut.

Carry on, minions! You are viewed as nothing. You are well below the, "I gots mine!" crowd.

When you appoint positions based on race, nepotism, cronyism, paying for the position, or supplying the answers to promotional test to a chosen few, what the fuck did you expect to happen? As my uncle once said to a deputy promoted well beyond his skill set, "If is wasn't for this job you'd be pushing a broom somewhere and probably struggling with that menial task. In the past when this practice wasn't so prevalent there were still knowledgeable supervisors that the over promoted brain dead could learn from. Now all that is left is a bunch of political hacks with online degrees, who together could not execute a 1 car funeral. Since when is going backwards progress. Since when is more violent crime progress? Since the democrat/communist/leftist/Marxist have been in power. So much for Hope and Change. The slogan should have read No Hope and Change for the Worse. You have to hand it to the democrats though, they along with the media have perfected the art of brainwashing to a whole new level.

Two Chicago Police Officers charged in Federal Court this week. One for tipping off a friend/drug dealer about an upcoming search warrant the other for having sex with a 14 year old girl several times for money. I'm wondering what these two guys have in common. Can someone help me out? Keep lowering the standards. This department continues to swirl around the toilet and will soon be flushed down the drain.

Iglinski was the only person running it all and they NEVER promoted him, so he left.He was the guy running it from behind the scenes. And no,this isn't Frank, but a huge fan of his. I hope he enjoys his time away from the job now. I saw the writing on the wall myself, and left as well. I will always hold Chicago in my heart, but what has happened to the department has broken my heart.

SO easy to say from your retirement perch.
Try going without water for twelve hours, or a little something to eat.
And no, I'm no hairgel, so don't even go there.
I'm a retired sergeant and I always had a case of water in the trunk, some power bars and a couple of extra flashlights when my people had a detail. You take care of the people who take care of you and you don't leave them hanging without food, water and a break every once in a while.

Have you ever heard of bringing your own food?
This shit has been going on for a week, if you're still without water and "snacks" you have no one to blame but yourself.
The only people who eat Powerbars are fat asses who wear Fit-Bits to count the steps they take to McDonald's.
Make yourself some food, it's cheaper and healthier.

FOP !! all their e mails show college' that you can attend and they can get a kick back from. Worse FOP staff ever now. They fucked us Medicare retired guys allowing the city to fuck us. Dean will be gone in a year or so and living the good life in his beach front home in California. Start a movement and get rid of FOP and go with the teamsters. They are totally legit now and know how to play hard ball with city. The FOP, if you let them will get 2 percent raise over 4 years and your will be paying for health insurance big time. Us guys on Medicare are paying 11 K a year thanks to FOP doing shit for us.

I call BULLSHIT on your post.

The Aenta insurance is $292 a month or $3504 for the year. If you have it taken out of your pension check you get a $3000 HELPS Federal Income Tax Credit when you do your Federal Income taxes next year.

Are you a teamster?
Are you a CPS graduate?
Are you a member o the City-Wide team?
Or are you a goof running for office?

I have to disagree with you. The city should have arranged to , at the least, have water brought into the officers on the line. The days are long and people need hydration. I am sure the brass of the department had plenty.It is the way a leader takes care of his troops.
