DOJ Report Friday!

Let the Countdown begin! (warning - Tribune link)
  • The U.S. Department of Justice plans to announce it has found the Chicago Police Department engaged in a pattern or practice of conduct that violated the U.S. Constitution, two sources with knowledge of the investigation told the Tribune.

    U.S. Attorney General Loretta Lynch will make the announcement Friday, according to the sources, but the details were still being worked out Wednesday.

    It could not be learned how sweeping the conclusions of the 13-month investigation would be, but the two sources said the Justice Department found constitutional abuses of citizens by Chicago police.
Lynch, who ought to have been indicted herself for meeting with the husband of a subject under investigation for numerous breaches of Federal Law, is flying in for the big event.

The Sun Times has a quote from McCompStat about how disappointed he is:
  • Word of the Justice Department announcement came as former Police Supt. Garry McCarthy said he is “disappointed” that federal investigators who have been probing the police department’s practices didn’t consult with him.

    “I was never interviewed, so I can only speculate what is in that report based on what I’ve seen in other cities,” McCarthy told a reporter in a text message.
Garry, no one has to consult with you because they know exactly what you're going to say - the same thing you said in New York and the same thing you said in Newark, both Departments which ended up under some form of Federal Consent Decree......

Hey, wait a minute.....maybe that's the connection? Anywhere Garry goes, a Federal Consent Decree follows? Stop the Presses!!!

That little 9 fingered wonder ought NOT to sign this here "gentlemen's agreement".......he ties our hands any more than he and the ACLU already has, he done be looking at 1200 homicides this year......right along with his 20% clearance rate......

Bad take Garry. You should be glad you were NOT interviewed. As a citizen reader, you went up a notch in my book not having your name associated with this DOJ exercise of imbiciles. I think most will agree that this is one of the most politically corrupt DOJ administrations in the history of the country. The last thing we need is politically corrupt people from Washington issuing reports about what crooked politically corrupt people here are responsible to administer.

This so called report is merely a rush to judgement to appease a special interest racial group and constituency by politicians. The fact your name is NOT in the "report" is good for you and further discredits the report. Keep putting distance between you and this shitty city.

OK everyone, here's what's going to happen - The findings will come out and they will be hyperbole, exaggeration, implication and maybe outright lie. We will be called racist and accused of having a culture of covering up the truth. It will make that BS task force report look like Dr. Suess. The DOJ won't care, because they're going to be gone in 9 days. And even if that idiot Stephen Patton were actually capable of pleading his client's case, the City won't challenge any of it. Just like the ACLU agreement.

And then before the ink is dry, Rahm will sign an agreement to comply with the changes. Of course, two weeks later the new administration will want no part of a consent decree, but Rahm will have scored his political capital. Once again, on the backs of the hard working women and men of the Chicago Police Department. And the things that would have made things better, like a new training facility - gone with the wind.

Maybe Kirkpatrick wasn't so dumb to beat it out of here. Organizational Development, my ass.

Bet rahms valets who will soon get a commanders pension to a minimum of a sergeants pension all the while being 9161 patrolmen (another pension theft), bet they all have their health insurance taken care of!

Now on the topic rahm has said he will sign this bullshit waste of time and implement immediately hurting the innocent more as police remain more fetal (bring sleeping bags to work), with loretta flying in on the taxpayers private jet to announce this nonsense with rahm at her side a big "fuck you" to the police. Watching President trump yesterday shutting down that scumbag reporter from cnn gives us hope, maybe he will come to chiraq and tell the "rahm crew" about law and order and lock them up for all their malfeasance! How can for example a mayor of a city use taxpayers rebate money to protect the illegal criminal invaders?

In closing the punk move by weak O'Reilly and rahm removing Trumps sign after Trump told the truth of chiraq violence wonder did either of the clowns watched the news "4 shot corner Archer and western with an assault rifle 1 dead so far!"

Need to get this done because this will document that the killings in Chicago are not the fault of a community culture that produces this climate of violence. No the senseless killings are the fault of the "Police" because they (pick):
1-stopped Johnny causing him to feel disenfranchised from society.
2-didn't stop Johnny thus allowing him to carry his weapon and shoot someone.

Would love to hear the question asked following to the AG Lynch Friday.
A Judge in Baltimore ruled that the law suit against the District Attorney and members of the Sheriff's Department brought by 5 Baltimore Police Officers has grounds and will proceed. In summary the District Attorney conspired to violate their due process rights. Is your office conducting a civil rights investigation in this matter?

Exactly how many times has the DOJ went into one of their **investigations** (witch hunts) of police departments and found that nothing was wrong? Well..that answer is ZERO and that's statistically impossible.

And that should tell people all they need to know. That the DOJ had already reached its conclusion before the first DOJ weasel got off the airplane from DC. The DOJ **knew** the police were being meanies to the poor blacks and they'd find the proof no matter how much they would have to twist the facts.

This approach / practice is called 'Conformation Bias' and is 100% illegitimate. But what would anyone expect from the Black Power Racists at Obozo's: 'Dept of Just-Us'.

Off topic... DON'T take CIT training! I took it thinking some (new) training dealing with mentals would be helpful. The training was great and helpful, but they don't tell you that once you're CIT trained, the dispatchers will be sending you all over the district "because" you're CIT trained... They'll ask if anyone is CIT trained, if nobody answers up, they go down the list and assign one. Officers with 20 years on who have been dealing (successfully) with mentals from day 1, can suddenly default and pass a job right along to a CIT trained officer. So thinking I was trying to lay low and avoid lawsuits and YouTube, some training how to better deal with mentals we deal with frequently might help me, instead now your chances of getting in a "news worthy" incident get increased exponentially because they send you to these jobs whether you volunteer to go or not. A 911 caller just has to hint at past medication use, or anything that "might" be construed as a mental issue and apparently call takers make it a Mental call and CIT officers get the jobs. An old timer told me once "Don't volunteer for anything"... Gee was he right. Talk about unintended consequences. I don't understand why Every new recruit isn't trained in this stuff while in the academy. It should be mandatory. If there was some way to give back my "certification", I would.

Your letter reminded me of an incident that I saw at the Harlem Iriving Plaza not too long ago. Two Hispanic teenagers were being detained for shoplifting at Target. I got to see the arrival of mamacita, the girls mother. The teens got a loud verbal beat down, reminiscent of Judge Judy, from the infuriated mother. She told the young man to never come anywhere near her house again and then turned to her daughter. I"m sure this teen will never forget the loud, bold and intense verbal lashing dished out by her mother.

I'd be willing to bet that this teenage girl's sticky fingers were nipped in the bud. Her punishment at home was probably far worse than any the court issued. Fortunately, this parent got it. Your right, it does begin at home.

He may be politically wounded, but Rahm can still fight, and most of all: "Never let a Crisis go to waste." Consider that Rahm, who claims to detest Trump, though he never gave back the $50,000 campaign contribution, has actually managed to Minimize His Damage on the DOJ Report. It is obvious that this report has been rushed, especially when you compare it to say L.A., which had a Department half our size. Rahm realized, (though he himself brought all of this upon us with the suppression of the McDonald tape.) that he could run out the clock, following the election of Trump. As former Chief of Staff and member of Obama's Transition Team, Rahm realized that once the votes were counted, certain Heads of agencies and Departments, would be in Exit Mode. So, he held back on signing any agreement with DOJ. Not to be misunderstood, this does not mean that Rahm is ready to be a friend of CPD. Instead, Rahm was able to negotiate from a position of power, because he knew he would have a job after January 20th, and Lynch would not. And he surely factored in the soon to be Contract Negotiations with FOP. So the Report will be scathing, but it will also be tempered. And something in it will should involve the Contract, and nothing will pertain to the Lieutenants Exam. Even though, unlike Exam Scam in the 80's, there is bound to be an Electronic Trail of e-mails and texts on this one. Function at the speed of a Postal Employee! Baby"G" And of course:Whenever Possible, F&ck Rahm!

I agree with first commenter.
The bullshit Rahm-orchestrated investigation should be ignored, we had no say. The advice would be to go about YOUR business and not what's waiting in Ghetto, although you could go out there and get jammed up faster than ever before. KimWrinkle is looking for her first closer.
The whole DOJ enchilada is about racism and the racist police at the patrol level.
The recommendations in the Police Accountabilty Task Farce Report tells all you need to know what the obama DOJ will do.

What really gets me is that the entire report is about white police engaging with the person of color offender-assailant. For most Criminals wreaking havoc on law abiding citizens or shooting their rivals, there is somebody in that community is calling for the police.
Now what happens when the non compliant person of color fails to obey the law of the land? It's not addressed beyond we are improperly or fail to follow training. It's our fault.
Who's willing to rush to the calls and engage the criminal element?

I think the only holdup now is how the results will effect the mayor, his sympathetic statement and future beyond 2019.
Aside from the extreme murder rate of 2016, complaints and discipline were probably up for a particular demographic of police officer, this may be the only reason Special Ed hasn't received his pink slip unless he has until his 29+1.
Granny's job is done, confirmed what Special Ed believes, certain Police are racists.

Read this shit people:
Police Accountability Task Force
Suggestions for Reform
CCACHICAGO.ORG
Type it in Google that way.
From top to bottom what they suggest for our department and what the department has already implemented is a direct result of this report. And especially read the section about our CBA. And suggestions they have for our next contract.
We be fucked. No way in hell the department implements all of this but anywhere close we should be compensated really well. Healthcare & Pension top priorities. Screw equipment, the department should already have to provide that for us and according to the aforementioned report they say as much.
Pay, Healthcare, and Pension should be our priorities, everything else means nothing to me. When i retire those three things are what matters. Residency ain't gonna happen. But by all means use it as a bargaining chip if we can. Ask for the world and gain the most important. Oh and as far as pay: how about 16% over 4 years - 4%/per year. Or 18% over 5 years - 4%/per year, 2%/the fifth year. We ain't getting 20% and 11% last contract is dogshit. So somewhere between 12%-18% with a goal of 14%-16%/4 years. Reasonable and attainable.
Stay strong: JW, JM, and the others. Justice will prevail tenfold.

I guess the FOP lodge 7 has never heard of a federal injunction order

Rule 65. Injunctions and Restraining Orders

(a) Preliminary Injunction.

(1) Notice. The court may issue a preliminary injunction only on notice to the adverse party.

(2) Consolidating the Hearing with the Trial on the Merits. Before or after beginning the hearing on a motion for a preliminary injunction, the court may advance the trial on the merits and consolidate it with the hearing. Even when consolidation is not ordered, evidence that is received on the motion and that would be admissible at trial becomes part of the trial record and need not be repeated at trial. But the court must preserve any party's right to a jury trial.

(b) Temporary Restraining Order.

(1) Issuing Without Notice. The court may issue a temporary restraining order without written or oral notice to the adverse party or its attorney only if:

(A) specific facts in an affidavit or a verified complaint clearly show that immediate and irreparable injury, loss, or damage will result to the movant before the adverse party can be heard in opposition; and

(B) the movant's attorney certifies in writing any efforts made to give notice and the reasons why it should not be required.

(2) Contents; Expiration. Every temporary restraining order issued without notice must state the date and hour it was issued; describe the injury and state why it is irreparable; state why the order was issued without notice; and be promptly filed in the clerk's office and entered in the record. The order expires at the time after entry—not to exceed 14 days—that the court sets, unless before that time the court, for good cause, extends it for a like period or the adverse party consents to a longer extension. The reasons for an extension must be entered in the record.


Who is the adverse party Us the FOP trying to changed a signed binding contract! They would have to prove they are not changing a contract.

It's not the 20 year vets choice to default and pass a job along to CIT trained officer, and we still get those jobs, depends on who is dispatching. That is what the department wants though. You're the police too, you took CIT training, do your job and don't worry about lawsuits like craven little puppy. I responded to mental jobs for over twenty years without CIT training and never worried about lawsuits. Sheeesh..You millennials

I was 12 when I was caught shoplifting at Marshal Fields with a friend. In those days they did not arrest you but called your parents and sent a letter home with you. I was embarrassed that I disappointed by parents, stopped hanging around with that friend because he was always in trouble and encouraged me to steal ( not that I did not willingly go along with it). I was never arrested again. But, my friend went on to commit crimes and spend time in CCJ. I think that is what is missing with these troublesome kids, parents who care and a good family environment. We were poor and had nothing and lived Back of The yards. No car, six people jammed in a 4 room house, no vacations, no money, but a good family that cared. Poverty is no excuse to steal or shoot someone or to disrespect someone. Something is very wrong with these black households, very wrong.

Off topic... DON'T take CIT training! I took it thinking some (new) training dealing with mentals would be helpful. The training was great and helpful, but they don't tell you that once you're CIT trained, the dispatchers will be sending you all over the district "because" you're CIT trained... They'll ask if anyone is CIT trained, if nobody answers up, they go down the list and assign one. Officers with 20 years on who have been dealing (successfully) with mentals from day 1, can suddenly default and pass a job right along to a CIT trained officer. So thinking I was trying to lay low and avoid lawsuits and YouTube, some training how to better deal with mentals we deal with frequently might help me, instead now your chances of getting in a "news worthy" incident get increased exponentially because they send you to these jobs whether you volunteer to go or not. A 911 caller just has to hint at past medication use, or anything that "might" be construed as a mental issue and apparently call takers make it a Mental call and CIT officers get the jobs. An old timer told me once "Don't volunteer for anything"... Gee was he right. Talk about unintended consequences. I don't understand why Every new recruit isn't trained in this stuff while in the academy. It should be mandatory. If there was some way to give back my "certification", I would.

Listen, I don't know where the fuck you work at but they have been asking for CIT officers on mental calls for quite a while. If you thought you could have a fuck off week in the academy for free you were wrong. Bad deal on your end, next time listen the fuck up and pay attention at work maybe you could have put 2+2 together. You could have read the order too, but if the first clue escaped you, you sure fuck ain't reading any orders.

To: the dummy compkainnng about CIT training.....

You only found out about that AFTER you took the training? Turn on any (busy) zone- and you almost constantly asking if a CIT officer is available to take a job. You cannot possibly have been oblivious to that beforehand.

However, I do agree with you. By being CIT certified you are putting yourself directly in harms way. You are volunteering for all of the jobs involving unstable people- so naturally the odds of things turning sideways are greater.

In my opinion CIT officers should get a bump in pay- such as FTO pay, by nature of heir asssignments. Intentionally being trained and volunteering for all the nonsense and risk that comes with it, CIT officers deserve a slight bump in pay.

Though I DO think that eventually he city will require ALL of us to be CIT certified.

Stay safe.

Oh well who cares They destroyed policing long before the DOJ came here. They are just going to make it harder to be proactive, If that's even possible. They still talk about Ferguson as though the cop was wrong even though every agency including the DOJ said he wasn't. The sad part is the cops are falsely under fire for trying to stop violent criminals(mainly gangs)from killing each other. I say the police do a damm good job when you look at the amount of violence they are injected into with very few mistakes.

The DOJ Report gives the politicians cover. Garry McCarthy is correct. If it was the Superintedent's policies that lead to the DOJ inquiry then the superintendent should have at least been interviewed. It's like sustaining a CR without interviewing the accused. Because McCarthy was not interviewed it appears that the entire investigation is a shame and the Report will help get the same politicians elected again.

Lets be real, every thing Obama's administration touched turned to shit, they couldnt even get a website right, but lets trust the media when they tell us tomorrow that the "report" states based on the statics police practices are racist, like street stops; without noting that Chicago's neighborhoods are segerated so in certain geographical areas the stops reflect the makeup of the population.

The last thing we need is politically corrupt people from Washington issuing reports about what crooked politically corrupt people here are responsible to administer.

This so called report is merely a rush to judgement to appease a special interest racial group and constituency by politicians. The fact your name is NOT in the "report" is good for you and further discredits the report. Keep putting distance between you and this shitty city.
