Ernie not only died broke but he was deeply in debt. Had a number of bad habits that he needed to feed regular. Credit cards were mostly tapped out. He had been putting on a show for years. Too many of "his guys" have ended up in prison trying to emulate him. He got away with so much because he was smarter than the average PO, but those who followed him took the weight of his crimes. He always had a patsy. Don't be fooled, he never did anything for anyone that didn't benefit himself. Best advice, Don't shed a tear for him."

Word is a Capt. from 002 who was RDO showed up in civ. dress and after someone from the family beefed to him that they did not want the police there only the Capt. told all the officers to leave. Nice of the Capt. to allow family members to tell him what to do! I hear all the officers asked to leave just so happened not to be black. Lastly Lt. girlfriend (P.W.) from 005 ordered to leave the residence since it was not her address of record with 35th st.

I met DT EB when he was a street deputy and came to the hospital when a male relative was IOD. As soon as he established that the injured officer was not my husband, he motioned for me to go out in the hallway with him.

Having heard of his reputation on here, I was ready the tight hug -- and was glad I had on a bulky coat -- and the line, "Now, ya'll let me know if you need anything. Anything, ya hear. My cell number is on my card and I expect you to use it." He then asked for my card and I lied and said I rushed out of the house so fast I forgot it.

After he and his driver were outside another female family member who saw the interaction said, "So that's Downtown Ernie Brown. He lived up to expectations. Even in ER."

If nothing else, he was consistent. May he rest in peace.

Check out Chuck Ramsey's comment to the Trib article:

thechiefdad1
I first met Ernie when he was a young police officer in Englewood and I was the newly appointed tactical lieutenant. Ernie and his partner Walter Green stood out as uniformed officers and I asked them to join the tactical team. I later brought Ernie to the Narcotics Section. He was a hard-working and dedicated police officer and never lost his work ethic as he rose through the ranks. When I left CPD to become Police Chief in Washington D.C. Ernie rode down with me in a U-Haul to help me move. He was one of my closest friends. Rest in peace my friend you will be missed. Chuck Ramsey

I see what you did there. EP-I-toe-mee! One of the funniest "Boss" stories out there.

For all of you eulogizing Ernie, and all of you excusing his shortcomings because he used to be 'the real police': wake up. I love the "he treated me right" ones. He is SUPPOSED to treat you right when you do your job.

Ernie had to place every young bird he "knew" in a good spot and ruined the management spots for YEARS! No one could get anyone they wanted to a District or Unit because he couldn't keep it zipped up. He gamed the system, did what he wanted when he wanted. How did this help you? Now, tell me how he was a great man, this morally bankrupt sexual predator. I imagine the cheerleaders are from a community that condones this? Nothing but cuckolds on this job.

Is there, was there, any one on this job worthy our respect?

Well she's not the soon to be ex-wife anymore, she is now the widow. And the "fiance" is, well...alone

All I know is when I retire I hope that I'm able to live a long retired life and enjoy whats left because I would have given the best years of my life to a city that could care less. Kiss my ass City of Chicago, I'm not doing a damn thing and when I die, S.C.C.'s post for me will be Officer Anonymous passed away at the age of 99. He took the city for 49 years of pension. Hey a man could dream. RIP E.B.

Can't say anything bad about crayola boy (as he and Green were known back in 007 in the 80s), if you were calling for help the crayola boys came (no matter the color or sex of the po calling for help) and you were glad to see them! RIP Ernie!!!

I am a male white. When I was a Two Year Wonder, I worked for Commander Brown in public housing, out of Robert Taylor Homes. The BEST time of my career!!!!! Ernie was a hell of a Boss. When the Police could be the Police. Policing will never be the same. Ernie was out there doing it will us. R.I.P. Boss. He was a man that I respected.

How about the time he had the gym locked down and at deposition time he denied it, leaving the sergeants out to dry.

No matter what, he was a cop at heart. He always backed his people and was there if you needed help. No matter what he was always there for the blue shirts. RIP Ernie.

Come on, why are there disrespectful posts on the passing of a man that did wear the same uniform you all did and do? Not many liked his policies or ideas in leadership but he has passed on and has not been our boss for a while. The way you hold onto hateref and appear to stress about it is a quick way to end up toearly passing yourself. Cool off go hang out with your family and forget whatever literally nonsense bs got you so fired up it ain't worth it. Condolences to the Brown family

Tell this to the women he sexually harassed and bullied. The man was a sexual predator. Or does that only matter when your the President Elect.

Now you go cool off!

Worked for Ernie, I agreed and disagreed with some of his ideas on policing. However, he was decent to me. I also saw him show patients when dealing with subordinates when he had every right to string them up for insubordination. At the end of the day the facts remain the same. Cops average life expectancy is 66 years and they die within 10 years of retirement. With tier 2 pensions, this job is not worth it anymore. Anyone hired after 2011 should find something else, this job takes more than it gives. Tier 1 is the only reason I'm sticking around. I don't know any 90 year old cops.

Hahaha hahaha.

The disturbance turned into a shit show at EB's home after he passed on. Old Walter green got knocked on his ass while all hell broke loose and The cheating Lt. PW (005) WAZ found hiding in the bathroom. The CURRENT wife of EB told the cheating LT. PW to basically get the fuck outta MY HOUSE. Poor old PW had to exit stage left since she was Shacking up with a MARRIED MAN. Fiance MY ASS....was said by the current Mrs. Brown.


What a shit show. It couldnt happen to a better woman. The lying, cheating Lt. PW (005) who has been hidden her whole career. She had a small office in charge of NOTHING for the last 2 years in 189. She did ZERO. must be nice Lt. Wines (005).

Sincerely,

Karma

Xoxoxox

Carl, you and I went to the academy together and I respect you. But that guy who 'was the police' thirty years ago was also a sexual predator who used his position for personal monetary gain and he was an immoral sleaze. I was one of those victims; his clout protected him every time. He had NO BUSINESS carrying our star.

Yeah it was awful. Lt PW left her husband of 12 years to shack up with EB. Good job Lt PW
Reap what you sow. Now you are labeled and don't have a leg to stand on but a little pillow talk would and could have given you everything he owned. Lesson #1 business first;
Straight to finance Dept to change beneficiaries so you loss there
Rush divorce so now you see that dragging divorce out leaves you with nothing.
Embarrassed? You should be because everyone knows that you and Saadia C cheated on the Lt exam. Just wait you will see and so will she. She has thousands of skeletons in her closet just wait because she has a mild mannered husband but he's a fool too
Choose your man wisely. How could you not know that EB had so much luggage???

I was going to speak at the funeral but because some of you so zealously want to believe what a "gentleman" and "great guy" he was, let me leave a few things here.

I grew up with him and knew him long before the titles, promotions and accolades. He was nicknamed Scootie because as a baby he would scoot across the floor before he could walk. He was like a brother to me and I looked up to him and his younger brother David as my protectors.

We spent many a Saturday at the Rhodes theater watching 007 and horror movies. They babysat me on many occasions and our families vacationed together.

I remember when he became a patrol boy and proudly showed off his belt.

From the outside he looked like any other middle class black boy from the South side of Chicago. What I witnessed first hand though was that he was the product of a home where domestic abuse occurred on a regular basis.

Apparently the scenarios he endured made him not only mimic what he grew up with and take it to a whole other level involving a warped sexuality and hidden hatred and disrespect for women.

A classic Narcissist if ever there was one. Imagine my shock, hurt, fear and betrayal when he came after me. This was the boy who ran behind me encouraging me as I learned to ride a bike. This was the boy that carried me on his back when we had to walk home from Funtown.

But the young man that I knew was gone and the man that replaced him was a wife beater, a bully and a sexual predator.


I avoided being around him at all cost but one day he caught me alone, threw me to the floor of his mother's living room and took what he wanted from me.

He ruined my relationships with my family since I now had to carry this horrible secret around. I was also angry that I knew
no one would believe me and no one had been there to protect me.
He ruined my relationships with men until with lots of self work and inner healing, I was able to trust and choose wisely again. I am finally engaged to be married to a wonderful man.

I forgave Ernest a long time ago, the year his mother passed away but it's been hard to forget how he so negatively impacted my life. Every news story, every new scandal and especially his death, brings it all up.

However, in the end, I won. I am truly a survivor on so many levels.

Rest, Wherever, Ernest Tyrone Scootie Downtown Brown. You can't hurt anyone anymore.
