16,500?

The way this city counts shootings and homicides, can anyone actually believe it?
  • More than 16,500 Chicagoans applied to join the Chicago Police Department, city officials announced Sunday.

    That is a 16.5 percent increase from the last time the police department accepted applications in 2015, officials said.

    The pool of applicants — who will take an exam in April to determine whether they are qualified to enter the five-month police academy — is also the most diverse in the city's history. More than 35 percent of the applicants are African-American, 33 percent are Hispanic and 2.4 percent Asian American, officials said.

    Overall, nearly 32 percent of the applicants were female and more than 73 percent were nonwhite, officials said.
Hopefully, there will be reporters at the testing location to get an accurate headcount of who actually shows up to take the test.

Just couldn't bring itself in the article to use the words white female or white male, leaving it up to the reader to figure it out.

Extra points for being a public school grad? What's next, bring back standardized testing?

Or, if you are a vet or a member of a LE family points will be deducted at any stage in the hiring process? How are those suits doing?

Excellence through diversity!!! All for it, if the very best is being hired. But we all know that is not always the case.

Back in the day when Judge Marshall had his hand in the hiring process there were 4 classifications, 'well qualified', 'qualified', 'conditionally qualified', and 'not qualified' to correct past hiring practices of the City under old man Daley. Seems there were quite a few recruits classified as 'well qualified' who had to have remedial reading given to them to get them through the academy. Then just so the rooms were set up to be diverse and not just set up going down the alphabet, we were all herded into the gym and separated into racial, gender, and ethnic groups. Each room got so many white males, black males, Hispanic males, white females, black females, Hispanic females, and other male/female. Thank God sexual orientation or sexual identification wasn't used back then.

First, I do not ever believe numbers provided by any city government agency. Especially in this city, state and country. I learned that back in the old "body count" days of 1968. Bull shit.

Secondly, I cannot believe so many people will take a test for a job that is already fixed to promote certian kinds of people over others when it is supposed to select the best candidates.

Finally, I do not believe so many people would sign up to take a test where they would have an easier time becoming a polictician. The are far fewer tests to take to become a politician. The odds are better than becoming the police.

As a Hispanic, (or a minority as some refer to even though such use of the term is clearly dated and quite relative which truly carries no bearing at all), I am sick and tired of the mention of race. who gives a flying fuck! I voted trump and I would do so all over again. he's the only one with the balls to create actual change which could be sustainable over a significant period of time. Can't stand the race card. Why the fuck would you want to hire some dimwit simply because he/she fits a demographic. Absolutely grotesque! What makes these entitled, elitist fucking bosses assume that because my last name is Mendez I want to work with or under a "Garcia" or a "Rodriguez". Watch secretaries do it all the time too. For crying out loud don't hire some Mexican kid for the sake of hiring a Mexican kid if he has a kelly h.s. education. Raise the God damned standards for once! My parents didn't bust their asses to send me to Catholic school so that I could sit next to a neanderthal who got in on the curve. Reverse racism is real! Good job Rahm for continuing to lower the fucking bar and hiring stupid unqualified people regardless of their demographic. I'm sure more "blackies, brownies, and girlies" will cleanse the city of all of its problems. Like it makes a difference whether a "Flaherty" versus a "García" answering a domestic makes a fucking difference. Oh and one last thing...this copper doesn't "habla" unless they pay me out of grade...that's a translator's job and I don't work for free!! Alright, soapbox moment over! Now who's with me!!!

Because they are there to make sure your Sgts do their job. Every giant clusterfuck we have had in the past few years has been caused by some Sgts not policing their troops. Not really their fault. The City let their ranks dwindle. Not having proper supervision has caused much of the problems we now face.

Get ready to actually do your jobs and stay for your full tour. You thought it was such a good idea sitting back and doing nothing while rubbing it in the taxpayers face? Time for the adults to run things. Get back to work.

Today they announced the arrest of a 20 year old man that beat, raped and then killed a young lady out jogging. Months ago, some copper noticed a suspicious man in that same area, had it investigated and the information was there for detectives to find and follow up on. That man was the scum that murdered the young lady.

Why am I addressing this? Because some copper, doing his job, investigated this suspicious man and the information (essentially a contact card) was stored properly. A family will have closure and a maniac will be off the streets. Justice will be served. It won't bring her back, but he won't kill again, that is if the rest of the justice system does their job.

So, for all of you check stealing jag offs that will use lawsuits as your justification for being the dogs you really are, look at this. Learn your job and the laws that go with it. Know what you can and can't do and you will survive. If you are afraid to do the job, quit. You are a danger to your fellow officers and the community you are not serving. That is what you are paid to do, it's an honor thing.

Hmm with the millions saved by this great winter so far on snow removal will rahm shuffle the money into hiring more police? maybe buying more police equipment? No bet he is funding police pension as required by law! Dreaming he cannot even follow federal laws while losing billions if this was corporate America him the 50,the toni crew and tommy would be thrown out on their asses and no one would ever hire them.

From breaking news story rahm he be cool "take a chill pill man!" What is this guy a hippie from a rich white suburban home grown up privileged:

Rahm: Too many Dems care more about being right than winning
Mayor Rahm Emanuel has warned Democrats they need to "take a chill pill" and realize that they are not going to take back national power any time soon.

"It ain't gonna happen in 2018," Emanuel said Monday at Stanford's Graduate School of Business in California. "Take a chill pill, man. You gotta be in this for the long haul."

As he did last month at an event in Washington D.C., the mayor expanded on what he believes is the roadmap back to power for his party — putting moderate candidates such as veterans, football players, sheriffs and business people up in Republican districts, picking battles with Republicans, exploiting wedges within the GOP and fighting attempts to redistrict Congress on partisan grounds.

But this time he didn't hold back on his frustration with some of his fellow Democrats.

"Winning's everything," he said. "If you don't win, you can't make the public policy. I say that because it is hard for people in our party to accept that principle. Sometimes, you've just got to win, OK? Our party likes to be right, even if they lose."

He added, "I don't go to moral victory speeches. I can't stand them. I've never lost an election. It's about winning because if you win you then have the power to go do what has to get done."

"If you lose, you can write the book about what happened — great, that's really exciting!" he said, sarcastically.


Durbin, Duckworth say they'll vote no on education nominee
Instead, he said, Democrats should focus on the GOP. "Wherever there's a disagreement among Republicans, I'm for one of those disagreements," he said. "I'm all for it. The President's with Russia? I'm with John McCain and Lindsay Graham, I'm for NATO! Why? [It's a] wedge. Wedges have to be schisms, schisms have to be divides."

Really professional he never lost an election "that's cool rahm your a cool cat!" Now about that federal money we are losing do the taxpayers take a chill pill or will they feel like this as you disobey federal laws on sanctuary cities:

Lowered Written Standards,

Soon the test will be a series of pictures. Not to choose from, but to color in. If the job requires college credit hours, why is the test continually dumbed down?

Lowered Physical Standards,

I think it was the mid 80's when some recruits were coming to their training districts 80 pounds overweight after PASSING the physical test.

Lowered Standards For Background checks,

Recruits with minor criminal backgrounds are already being hired. Certain Aldercreatures would like the background standard lowered to INCLUDE MORE CRIMES. Do any logical minds see a problem with this?

I wish all the test takers well.

I just hope for their sake that the process is at least semi legit.

I'm not counting on it.

OT but worth repeating. Saw this on another thread.......

Strong rumor. The IG has finished their investigation into the Lt. cheating scandal. The results are very embarrassing to Emanuel. They allegedly have enough evidence to connect rule 14 violations to at least 6 or 7 of the accused Lt.'s. Since this would not fare well with the current Supt. seeing as how one of the accused is NF it's been determined that the Supt. will retire within 90 days. At that time the 1st will strip the current Lt.'s pending separation. Transparency is good. Sometimes it's a little too hard to hide all the facts and sweep everything under the rug. It's 2017 not 1964. Too many newfangled contraptions like computers, cell phones, cell phone cameras. Everything comes out. No more secrets. Finally justice may be served.

Can anyone explain why we now have 3 Lts on the watches? 2 barely had enough to do. Waste waste waste

Because they are there to make sure your Sgts do their job. Every giant clusterfuck we have had in the past few years has been caused by some Sgts not policing their troops. Not really their fault. The City let their ranks dwindle. Not having proper supervision has caused much of the problems we now face.

Get ready to actually do your jobs and stay for your full tour. You thought it was such a good idea sitting back and doing nothing while rubbing it in the taxpayers face? Time for the adults to run things. Get back to work.

"Every giant clusterfuck we have had in the past few years has been caused by some Sgts not policing their troops".
Yeah, thats it, blame the Sgt for some Officers stupid actions!
As a P.O., if I stepped in shit or created a "giant clusterfuck", I didn't have to look any further than the face in the mirror.
Take responsibility for your OWN actions!
Don't blame a Sgt!

Why hello there, new Lt. Are you telling us you didn't do your job while you were a Sgt, so now you're here to lay down the law as a new Lt? Go fuck yourself. If you actually think you'll be doing any work as a Lt, other than approving a schedule and signing some slips, you're a fool. You're going to fix the whole "stay fetal" movement? You're going to make sure everyone stays for their entire tour, even yourself and your fellow Lts? You clueless fucks who come out of the academy, with your fresh training about how to fix things as a new Lt, and your idiotic ideas about making people get you activity, can all just go fuck yourselves. You can't fix anything. The ship has sailed, and it's full of holes. All the force mitigation and procedural justice in the world won't help. Get a clue, kick back, and enjoy your new job of doing almost nothing for a shitload of money. If you're actually buying any of your own bullshit, or whatever bullshit they taught you at the academy, at least dress like a clown when you come to work, so everyone knows what you're about.

Today they announced the arrest of a 20 year old man that beat, raped and then killed a young lady out jogging. Months ago, some copper noticed a suspicious man in that same area, had it investigated and the information was there for detectives to find and follow up on. That man was the scum that murdered the young lady.

Why am I addressing this? Because some copper, doing his job, investigated this suspicious man and the information (essentially a contact card) was stored properly. A family will have closure and a maniac will be off the streets. Justice will be served. It won't bring her back, but he won't kill again, that is if the rest of the justice system does their job.

So, for all of you check stealing jag offs that will use lawsuits as your justification for being the dogs you really are, look at this. Learn your job and the laws that go with it. Know what you can and can't do and you will survive. If you are afraid to do the job, quit. You are a danger to your fellow officers and the community you are not serving. That is what you are paid to do, it's an honor thing.

YOU are a stone jag-off.

Do YOUR JOB instead whining on the blog about
how you're the only one doing any work while
"everybody else" is mailing it in.

You cherry pick one instance of awake and alert
Policing to bolster your accusation.

You're as bad as any west or south side shit head.

If the job is that bad and you have so little
faith in Policing and your fellow officers as to front
with this bullshit, do us all a solid and retire.

I have been on the eligibility list for months, I had tested in 2013!!! Still waiting to get called for the academy. Proof that this department is not serious about hiring people. Called human resources and was told "be patient and do what you've been doing". At least some of the guys in my round of power testing have been called for the academy class that starts in a couple weeks.

And when he's found not guilty because of our broken justice system, and he sues those officers, and he gets paid, and he's back out on the streets to beat, rape, and kill again, what will you say? When his "suspicious" activity didn't meet the threshold of "reasonable, articulable suspicion," and the entire case is tossed, what happens? False arrest, civil rights violation, etc. Save your preaching for Sunday, because no one here is buying it.

Biggest scam ever! They hardly work and sometimes get a full duck. For the few hours they do show up they watch tv and surf the net. They have no duties. Typical waste of city money.

Okay glory boy moron .. Ask former Sergeant Steve FRANKO how that is working out for him.

All he did was REVIEW (NOT Approve) the Tactical Response Report on the McDonald shit-show.

FRANKO is now in a no pay status WITHOUT even having a police board hearing.
The Deputy Chief McNaughton who approved and ordered Franko to review the TRR was asked to leave the department and then promptly given a city job.

Keep drinkin' the koolaid you ass-wipe half-wit.

Alderscum Arena is an arrogant jerk. If he shoves this project down the throats of his constituents the only good that will come of it is he will be voted out. There is outrage over this and it will end him. He's turning his ward into Uptown.

Man I hope u are not one of us. You can know the laws and the rules and do everything perfectly right but still get fired. The only law or rules that count is how the public, media and politicians interpret those rules. Look at what happened to the dicks, POs and Sgt's who handled the Laquan case. You stop someone and do everything right and send them on their way. They beef and say u stuck your finger in their ass while u searched them. No doubt about it you will be on admin leave. Regardless of what ends up happening it'll always be on there.

Did the contact card stop the crime? Did the contact card save the victim's life? Did the contact card make the area safe? Once upon a time, being stopped by the police might have actually deterred this tragic event from ever happening. Criminals didn't want to get noticed or hang around an area when put on notice by an officer who observed them. The fact that the low life scum who was stopped once before by the police in that same area returned to rape and murder an innocent proves that today's criminal has no fear of repercussions in our current system of justice. The boundaries of our authority as officers have been tightened and retracted and at the same time the lines of criminality and responsibility have been blurred to the effect of creating a new category of victimhood solely for these same criminals. The justice system will fail to keep the murderous scum from walking among the civilized world so long as liberal sycophants infest every aspect of it. Do not place blame on good officers for working within the confines of their new rules provided by the ACLU and DOJ; they readily excuse criminals acting on impulse and sociopathic tendencies but have no such tolerance for the mistakes made by officers acting in good faith and in the spirit of their duty.

To see his family and friends who work for CPD being treated like trash for past two years. He stepped away with no regrets. We need a police department, but we do not need to be scapegoats for the media or criminals.

Beside being born and graduation from College it was the best thing my Son has ever done.
