Imagined Racism Again

Can someone explain how the Contract is racist? Because these pinheads are making all sorts of claims that don't stand up to the lightest of scrutiny:
  • African-American aldermen on Wednesday called for Mayor Rahm Emanuel to remove clauses in the city's police contract that they contend foster racist misconduct in the Chicago Police Department, an assertion the police union swiftly rejected.

    The City Council Black Caucus' demands come as the mayor negotiates a new police contract, talks that have been handled by the administration and union representatives, and not aldermen.

    The "contract has been serving and protecting the culture of cultural racism and violence in our Police Department for far too long," said South Side Ald. Roderick Sawyer, 6th, the group's chairman. "Now is our chance to change this."
And then the Tribune glosses over the entire accusation - not a single example of racism in a Contract that has been approved near unanimously for decades now.
  • Dean Angelo, president of the Fraternal Order of Police Chicago Lodge 7, noted that aldermen signed off on the current police contract.

    "This is the same rhetoric we've been listening to ever since the anti-police movement began, and we're expecting these type of statements to be coming out of the chambers of the City Council," Angelo said. "When we ratified our contract in October of 2014, we got a standing ovation (from aldermen) and we went back in November of 2015, they wanted my head on a stick, and we did absolutely nothing. We were thrown under the bus. They are deflecting and blaming the FOP, but this is the same populace that has ratified every agreement the union has had with the city since 1981."
Imagine that - thrown under a bus for political expediency. Who'd have thunk it?
  • There are 18 black aldermen on the 50-member council, but a number are close allies of the mayor, so it's unclear if they would vote against a contract that did not include the provisions Sawyer outlined. Ald. Jason Ervin, 28th, said would not vote in favor of any police contract that does not include the changes.
Ervin also won't vote for a Contract that doesn't include at least two boxes of Dunkin' Donuts assorted.
  • The recommendations call for eliminating the requirement for a sworn affidavit by a citizen before a complaint can go forward, removal of a restriction on investigating anonymous complaints, and deleting the requirement that the name and address of a complainant be disclosed to the officer against whom it's filed.

    Changing the requirement for a sworn statement involves more than just negotiating a deal with the FOP because the provision also is enshrined in state law. And getting the FOP to give that up without something significant in exchange will be a tall order.

    Other recommended changes included deleting the provision that gives officers 24 hours before they are required to give a statement after shooting somebody and another giving officers a chance to change their statements after seeing video of the incident.
And as we pointed out, most other jurisdictions have 48-hour down time before giving a statement. The feds have a full 3 days. And then the accusations of racism pop up again:
  • "They found that racism was rampant in our Police Department, and so was misconduct," said Bryce Colquitt of the Workers Center for Racial Justice, which is part of the coalition seeking the changes. "The thing is the contract is being negotiated right now. We cannot miss our moment to make real change."
And again, apocryphal stories of racism ARE NOT proof of systemic racism throughout the Department. The DOJ report was just as substantial as a fart. What was it Special Ed said a few days ago, something about a Commander with 90-plus complaints and close ties to a guy doing 20 years in prison?
  • The fact that you have an allegation doesn’t mean you’re automatically guilty of something. That’s why it’s investigated. So, because they are not sustained allegations, that should should not hold him back. That’s why you have due process.
Unless you're a Chicago alder-asshole looking to score points.

To the trolls reading our blog, you can cry racism and abuse and all that jazz but at the end its alderscum who are the ones who should be held accountable. We do our jobs with everything stacked against us for the same people who hate us and We do it knowing that we might not come back home to our families. Transparency is a word that is thrown around like a baseball and no matter how much the city gives you, its still not enough.

Plain and simple. Anything, whether in an ordinance, law, or contract, that gives a cop a fair, legal shake is racist. As far as the LEFT and the aldercreatures are concerned cops are guilty from the start, yet they cry like babies when they need a cop due to being victimized by the animals they are trying to protect. Fuck them all and let God sort them out.

These are the same "Aldermenz" complaining about the Crime in their communities. 1. The Affidavit is a joke, because it requires the State's Attorney to prosecute. All Prosecutions are discretionary, so if you think Ms. Foxx is going to prosecute one of her constituents; turn yourself in for urine testing. 2. Double-down on the 24 hrs.! The DOJ is branding CPD, so go to what the FBI does in terms of time since they are part of DOJ. 24 hrs. after a shooting is NOT ENOUGH time to get your shit together following a life changing incident. And even that would not have occurred were it not for Weiss, who told Alvarez that the Old Round Table, where the State's Attorney sat in a debrief might be a Conflict of Interest! 3. The FOP must pursue Civil Litigation against anyone lodging a false complaint against an officer. Yes, we realize that the complainant may be broke; but then again he may not, and even if he is today he may not be in the future. Put a lien on future assets, especially if he was on the verge of "Turning his life around." Instead of viewing the negotiations as a defensive action where you walk in "politely asking"; start to think like they do in the World of Entitlement: "I bees Demanding!" And in the meantime, adhere to Chicago Values, which means look out for yourselves FIRST. Baby "G"

The last FOP president to give aldermen city stickers was Mark Donahue. He give them to the 50 clowns personally. How do you think he got his kids jobs in the city clerks office?

Shield stopped the city stickers and went right to Rahm with Cuff Links? What a goof?

Its about time that the 50 alderman spots for chicago get reduced to 25. Los Angeles has a bigger population than we do and they only have 15 alderman. Lets see, if the alderman make 100,000 for a part time job and also receive another 100,000 or so for their staff then we'd be saving the city about $5,000,000 now this sounds like a great idea. I mean, how many crooked alderman have to be convicted before we see the advantage of firing half of them

From not a LEO, just another cityworker:

After a huge snow before the 1999 elections, the Bureau of Electricity was shut down and we were sent out snow shoveling. The acting alderman, Reverend Leonard Deville (21st) had his office give us list of "senior citizens" to shovel out their homes. Yep, you guessed it, all the addresses were drug houses. When I refused, I was threatened with suspension. "Those people (and folks) have rights too! You all racist!"
No thanks, I'll trust the real police before any alderman.

Of course any contract the police department has with the city is going to be "racist". It will be racist in that certain standards of behavior will be expected from all police officers. There is authority, chain of command, actions expected and denied to police officers.
The whole idea of contracts, standards of behavior, authority and law enforcement is racist to minorities that don't want any authority over them, cannot act within any standard of societal norms or respect any law preventing them from doing what ever the hell they want to do.
And when a lawful action is taken against them (for the good of all) these are the people the news media run to for the "man on the streets" opinion.
Contracts, law enforcement, government, constitutions, yep, they're all racist. But welfare, EBT, SNAP, section 8, none of that's racist.
Stay safe Officers.

Disability Dean angelo and Mike Lappe need to be asked to explain the numbers below about our pension administrative cost. You two guys are in charge and want to address waste well here have it.
Below are numbers for wha our pension fund spends every year since 2006 to 2015 on medical doctor reports and doctor consulting fees. Then below are legal fees. Since 2006 the pension board has authorized a total of 2,841,316 dollars. Almost 2.9 million on doctor consulting. This is a total waste of money. Mr. Lappe raves about saving money on coppers being on bs for injuries and he the allows this much money go to this. This is called special interest Lappe and Deano. This is a example of taking care of others and not your own who did there jobs and risked their lives. Lappe and Angelo need to get real about this and called out. Angelo now is back to the department and has miraculously healed. He will retire with bump in pension due to leaving with a higher salary. How convenient Dean.
These numbers blow my mind in how high they jump between 2008 to 2015. This is waste and needs to be addresses as officers are having benefits taking against the CBA while Dean does nothing . Dean what about Don O'Neills double dipping self. He was your partner back in the day. Lappe and Dean should address gold braid pensions as well.
Focus officers. Angelo and Lappe are scum.

Doctors fees
2006: $87,999
2007: $176,978
2008: $217,251
2009: $240,341
2010: $187,073
2011: $238,718
2012: $374,528
2013: $448,196
2014: $403,884
2015: $466,348

Total: $2,841,316 in just doctor consulting

How many officers have been removed from disability and how much money has been saved for our pension fund Lappe and Disability Dean?

legal fees
2006: $160,927
2007: $215,430
2008: $240,450
2009: $291,210
2010: $315,263
2011: $270,867
2012: $753,508
2013: $461,222
2014: $452,729

Total : $3,161,606 in legal fees lost from our pension fund to friends of Lappe and Disability Dean

Keep in mind the lawyer that represents the pension fund who we pay Kugler has his family members on the pension payroll as well.
Dean Angelo and Ray Casiano hired Maggie O'Grady who 4 years ago retired from working at the pension board and gets a pension from our fund and now collects a paycheck and double dips all on the backs of working cops.

These gutter rats that get elected to the city council forget they are gutter rats. They actually think because they got elected that they are intelligent! Just listen to the majority speak. What should be a concern and investigated are the gang ties/affiliations a number of these gutter rats have and the problems this has and is creating in Chicago.
If you want to figure out who is to blame for this, look no further than your local democratic ward and the way that the city is and has been run for the last century. A start would be to get political and put up opposition candidates. This would require police, fire, and city workers to integrate into these neighborhoods that the gangs control and push them out. It is not going to happen overnight but it could be done.

Has our current FOP administration done anything to stop the beating of our officers? NO Cow Tow to the Honorable RHAM, When is the FOP going to stand up for us? To busy working on the golf outings and picking out the new golf shoes so we look good of course we would not have known that had not our treasurer gotten upset at the added expense.

What would happen if the situation was reversed and the Aldermen or the people they represent were required to provide an immediate statement, etc.? Would they be willing to do so without an attorney speaking for them? Would they want to see the video first? Would they want to know who was filing complaint against them? When the shoe is on the other foot would it fit or would it pinch them too much? The question really is this an "emotional" argument or a "principled" argument. If a principled argument then they must be willing to support this process when it is applied to them or the people they represent; if not they need to give it a rest.

You would think these Black Aldermen would be more concerned about all of the bodies littering the streets of their wards because of vicious criminals attacking Black citizens. All of the people shot especially young children being shot and killed. Fact is these same corrupt immoral representatives of the people don't have a clue how to stop the carnage. Instead they keep pounding on the police to draw attention away from their own inaction. The more they pound on the police less work cops are doing and it gets even worse. Chicago is getting the police dept. it deserves.

And this is the reason I don't care what these thugs do to each other anymore. if these aldermen and liberals in general cannot understand that wearing your pants below your buttocks for the world see your dingy drawers, listening to hardcore gangsta rap while drinking and partying on the public way while selling drugs and carrying guns illegally as detrimental to a society then they can go pound sand. Anyone who dares to expose this garbage is labeled a racist. Anyone who demands a little accountability from the community is a racist. Really? What a poor excuse for leaders these aldermen must be. Self interested demagogues who instead of leading thier people out from poverty, keep them supressed, poor and ignorant. Shame on tiny dancer for pandering to them. But go ahead you blue jean warriors keep bringing in those numbers for a dept that doesn't seem to care a hoot about you. Keep chasing guys for pistols and dope hopefully you won't have to use your service weapon or catch a wrongful CR. Then you'll see how much this dept has your back.

What a joke we've become for even entertaing these notions.

You wouldn't have "black politics" as you know it without whites i.e. Blagojevich, Daley, Madigan, Rahm, Dart. You act like politics works differently from clout. They don't want some bright, young mind with a different perspective. If you don't toe the line and be sent by someone, you won't be a part of almost anyone's politics.

.....WOW Dean Angelo actually made a statement in the media! Oh wait there must be an election going on.....

All of a sudden Team Angelo is mailing letters, e-mailing ballots, and trying to address every working and retired copper in the city and out of town.

However, when the crap hit the fan multiple times, Angelo hid for days and weeks before issuing a statement to back the coppers.

And then it was weak at best.

Time for somebody else, and not the former goof either.

From now on, no cop should ask a per anything, for 48 hours. No questions, and no answers, right?

As for this filing a complaint without swearing to its contents, well, we gotta get that in line between people and cops, evening it up. When the cops have to be held to acocunt directly for the things they claim, busted when they are wrong or lying, then so too do the people have to be just the same. So these fools really think that anyone should be able to file a beef with a cop regarding their actions, and then not be held to account for ummmmm like when they scream RACISM at a traffic stop and then the cameras show that there wasn't ANY, not even a SMIDGEN? Like THAT? Yeah, like that. Why would FOP even CONSIDER giving that up, much less for something "significant"? FFS! That is like a message sent that FOP is open to trading it away!

Another BULLSHIT election post. Emanuel asked FOP for their political endorsement in the last general election. He came to FOP and was interviewed and did not get the endorsement. So much for FOP being in the Mayor’s pocket.

Emanuel was forced into a run off. The mayor came back to FOP a second time was interviewed a second time and AGAIN left without an endorsement. The ONLY person at FOP to endorse Emanuel was Mark Donahue.

Retired .38 spl +P obviously you’re either a former City-Wide team member of a member of the Blue Voice ticket or both? What's your opinion if Markie Mark Donahue?

Chicago Police, Racism, TV image. For over a month now I have been stuck in a hospital and have watched more TV than I have in years.

Shows like BLUE BLOODS, LAW & ORDER, SPECIAL VICTIMS UNIT and others that feature the NYPD have them as New York's Finest in all regards.

The Chicago Police Department has always gets beaten up on TV shows ever since the end of short lived TURKS. I got sick of watching CHICAGO PD as the premise of the main character being a corrupt and brutal sergeant was unnecessary. Every one of the episodes I watched ended predictably in a shooting with the coppers acting like it was no big deal.

Producer Dick Wolf has made many of the popular TV shows which has lauded the NYPD.

He now brings us a show called CHICAGO JUSTICE. Stand by for more black eyes and dragging the CPD through the mud. It will give blm more fuel for their cause.

We need a show like HILL STREET BLUES again. I am available to write for that.
But Rahm want to keep our image as the bad guys going.

Never forget he sold out the 19th Ward, extorted Marist and dictated a private school's policy and carried the Mayor's message by toeing his line. Gee, election coming up?

%%%%

Dean did not apply for disability. The city put him on it after he hand over 365 days on the medical over more than a decade. Ask Lappe about that. Dean applied to go back limited duty when the city on it's own changed their rules. They want to get full duty people out of callback. The city eased it's own standards after several people threatened to sue under "American with Disabilities Act." Confirm with Lappe.
