Video Thanks

  • The Chicago Police Department on Wednesday released a tribute video thanking the many officers who worked to help Cubs fans celebrate the team's World Series win.

    The more than 5-minute video thanks the "thousands of officers and partners who worked countless hours in front and behind the scenes to ensure America could celebrate our World Champion CUBS safely."
Amusingly, Special Ed appears in the video about 82 times. Rahm, a few dozen. Actual officers are filmed for, literally, tenths-of-seconds, as the Cubs buses rush by. There were a couple of personal thank yous from players and some of the crowd shots were interesting.

We know it's the thought that counts, and we were certainly thinking of the Cubs when were were laying out cash for our Gremlin. But it was sort of obvious the boys and girls at the Video Services were writing a love letter to the brass to save their spots in some future budget cutting move.

Check your Department e-mail if you want to see this thing.

Please explain to the citizenry why the people who actually did the work do not appear very much. Why thank rahm and you short bus ed? We don't want to see those jags. It would be even better if those two did no more "good" deeds for our city.

You think it would be the Cubs making a Thank You video to the Police.

This is a silly propaganda piece.

HOLY CRAP. The first 2 min of the constant Rahm and Special Ed is all you need to see. I about puked with the ass kissing here. I won't even get into the fact the editing job makes your head spin. We are truly a disgrace . Whoever put that video together needs to be outed. That is one of the worst pieces of garbage to date. What did the supe and Rahm do. Nothing but get fat and watch the game.

Why would you first of all even watch this crap knowing it came from the city and P.D. Secondly why would you want to be seen in it so the police haters can get your face shot ,id you and put you onto one of the police hating sights.If you think these politicians or the cubs or any sports teams care about you think again. Please care about you and your family's and the brothers in blue you work with. Disregard most if not all of the bosses because all they have in is own good in mind and not yours.There are very few who look out for the men. The day they get that job is the same day they start worrying that they will loose that spot. God Bless and stay fetal and employed

Have not watched the whole video...saw snippets on the news. Worked the detail--from an operational view it was a case study in how NOT to run a large multi-day detail. Maybe the head fools should have a NIMS refresher on pre-planning, execution and exit strategy----or more bluntly - on everything.

Imagine seeing the video with new audio....the words of exhausted members without radios assigned to random spots without any one in charge knowing who was where (not even knowing which Lt was where with how many)....recklessly endangered by lack of crowd control tactics....did anyone outside the ballpark get a quick refresher in the gestures used to communicate in such situations---or how to identify the undercovers,,,,nope- but we wore pretty yellow vests which photograph well.

WTF-- This just in, incompetent/pandering political hack Joe Ferguson and his band of misfits at the Inspector General's Office evidently turned over more than 240,000 emails in a criminal case and the "vast majority of the emails and attachments... are not relevant" to the shooting and include "UNREDACTED PERSONAL INFORMATION"... according to the Corporation Counsel's office. Yikes,just what exactly is the personal information ? SSNs, home addresses, medical records, member family information, etc. FOP needs to determine right quick if any members personal information was compromised and disclosed by these cop wannabe clowns.

Nice video, nice thought behind it.

But WHY have that asshole Rahm in it so much?!? He's the mayor, so what? In all his years, he hasn't done anything to help the Chicago Police Department and all you working coppers, and he certainly didn't do anything to help the Cubs win the World Series.

So Good Job by all; 5-Frank squad. ;-)

Has anyone else been told at roll call, or were the victim of the stripper himself, That well fed Ed has stopped coppers on the street and asked them what the gang conflict areas are in their districts, then pulling up their activity while they are still on scene asking for them why they aren't doing shit?

Lately in Rollcall they have been threatening us that if they don't get numbers they are going to start fucking with us; ie time due denied, splitting up partners, taking away guys regular cars, putting people who don't get along together, ect. They really need a good federal indictment these white shirts. Just wish the Feds would stop turning a blind eye to it, they have to know what these assholes are saying to us.

With all the negativity about the police here is a GOOD PIECE of NEWS, Saint Xavier University is doing something very nice for us. Saint Xavier has put a lot of people thorough the MBA program, and I am one of the program's graduates. They have have created a "First Responder" Scholarship (for Chicago Police and other first responders) who enroll in any of their Graduate Programs. This scholarship will be available to NEW applicants, starting for the Spring term which begins in January 2017. The scholarship is for 25% off tuition. This will make up for the cut in tuition in the last FOP contract. With the State Legislature in chaos and funds not being made available to Colleges and Universities I think this is a very nice gesture on the universities part. My understanding is there will be more news about the Scholarship in an upcoming FOP newsletter. At least someone appreciates us.

They actually count how many "hits" their propaganda video gets.
Thanks for the warning.

As with anything that's produced for the Dept it is edited by a higher authority. (Remember the CPMF's GMac "Rocky" montage?)
I'd like to believe the videographers had plenty of footage of the actual Beat Officer engaged in the spirit and displaying their best. Probably a lot of celebration and too many citizens cheerfully posing with the Officers. But like in the Mainstream Crooked Media, the camera guy gets the backlash for the executive policy.
It's obvious and for a while, the poisonous tactics of the Mainstream Crooked Media has carried over to the Video Services Section, but knowing who's the Merit Exempt that oversees the Unit, you can figure it out.
