So There's This Order.....

If you were raised with any sort of moral compass, you'd think that people are supposed to know the rules....and obey the rules, not flout them like some two-bit chiseling criminal.

We direct you, dear readers, to Employee Resource Order 04-05, specifically Section III, Subsection B-1-b which states in full:
  • Merit Board members will not be allowed to participate in the nomination process. [emphasis added]
Not "should refrain." Not "might want to think about not participating." It says "WILL NOT."

We now direct you to the "Merit" Board as it is currently constructed:


A fine upstanding bunch of Deputies, none of whom ever passed a promotional exam on their own and at least one that should have been facing criminal charges years ago.

Finally, we present the most recent Sergeant list from about three weeks ago:


Golly. Three of the "Merit" Board nominators have nominees who were made "merit" in direct and egregious violation of the written directives of the Chicago Police Department. And Special Ed, sitting around waiting for a kidney (and hoping for a spine), does nothing in the face of what can only be described as blatant corruption, malfeasance and....well, cheating we guess.

But he's used to that last one.

This has been brought to the attention of the FOP and the Inspector General. You'd think a slam-dunk case of numerous Exempt members violating policy would be the subject of some sort of investigation, what with the DOJ pretty much slamming the "business as usual" practices around here, but all we're hearing is crickets.

All they have to say is they did not vote for the person they nominated and excused themselves.

extremely common in a corrupt system.

And FOP? Can't do a damn thing it is a merit pick! The City can put a clown who has never made an arrest or someone who takes a bullet for lack of skill.

Yet we treat these goofs like they are brother in blue.

Most merits end up in a unit within a few months and filter to the D unit.

No big deal. Next time they want somebody promoted, they'll just give another boss an extra pick then have that same boss sponsor their pick. It's all legit.

Usually, when a politico faces re-election he gears up to put on a flurry of activity to convince voters to support him/her. However, our current Pooch in Command at FOP HQ is still as dormant as a doormat! His letter to retirees blatantly states that he solved insurance coverage for retirees. That alone will keep this retiree for voting for him and his slate - especially the troll who now is president at the Pension Board. Also perplexing is Kevin Graham who states that he's the working police when his assignment is house security for our weasel of a Mayor. Is there any honest candidate running for FOP president? Please advise.

Nothing will happen. In "Chicago Speak" "Will Not" means it is okay to break the rules without repercussions. Especially if the offender is exempt rank or a pol or family member of both. However, if one is a grunt and violates "Will Not" in any Department Order, City Ordinance, or law rest assure that the grunt will be punished to the fullest extent possible. Can't have the lowly masses break the rules when they want and help friends and/or family.

Hey SCC, take a look at the current list for detectives. How does Ann Kirkpatrick get a pick? She has been gone for a few month on top of only being here for about 4. So in 4 months she gained enough knowledge of the excellent work of a PO to put that person in for a merit spot? Also, her merit pick is from 014 and she worked out of HQ. At what point in the 4 minute months she was employeee he did she observe the work ethics of a person she never Commanded?

This is What, Why and who these bosses are through their entire careers and BEYOND! Consider that the Vice-Chancellor of City Colleges, who is charge of Security at all seven of the City Colleges, former CPD Gold Star, chooses supervisors from her ranks of Friends and Patronage Cronies. She has hired people with zero police supervisory experience to serve as Asst. Director of an entire college, supervising cops and Cook County Correctional personnel. Or in another case she has her former Community Relations Sgt. as the Asst. Director of another college.The guy never worked a day at City Colleges, she just helicopters him in; and then she adjusts his schedule so he only has to work part-time! To get promoted at City College Security, you have to know the "Vieja", you have to have her as a Clout. These people are Career Political Hacks, and when they retire to another six figure City job, they continue the corruption that made them bosses. All at the expense of the Public, in terms of inferior service provided by their cronies! Another Hack, outed by the Intercept article, (and the Vieja was also mentioned in that article.) got a six-figure job at NEI. Shameless, Political Bootlickers, who lack the ability to lead or think on their own. This is CPD Leadership. Is it any wonder that Morale is in the toilet! Do Absolutely Nothing, beyond the minimum. These are Rahm's Chicago Values, and if you do more than the minimum; you justify the corruption. Baby "G"

I know of 2 commanders who have made every rank legit, without merit (other than that the obvious rank of captain and up).
The thing that I find interesting is that throughout the last several rounds of promotions over the last few years, neither of these bosses had any of their picks promoted. Any they're in districts!
I'd love to see how many picks have been granted from those who have never been made merit as opposed to those who have. I'll bet the number of merits making other merits is off the charts in comparison!
Remember, it's all legit....

If they get their picks, but can't be in the interview, don't you need all 5 to make the "merit evaluation"? Aren't they placed In "tiers" then? So those who got their pick and sat out on the vote, there are only 4 voters. and those 4 voters know they are voting for the others "pick" so no one is going to give a bad score, placed in the higher tier. Meanwhile the others who have 5 scorers and who actually believe the process is legit will be placed in a lower tier. What a scam.

Here's how this mess gets fixed: Attorney General Jeff Sessions, who possesses deep admiration for policemen, sends hordes AUSA'S and FBI agents into Chicago to "drain the swamp" just as a rightfully vindindictive Richard Nixon did to Chicago in 1972 to settle the score for Daley and the democrats stealing the 1960 presidential election from the Republicans. Many corrupt politicians and thriving coppers-think Tom Keane and Mark Thanasuarus-went to the penitentiary. If you have evidence of corruption you need do little more than send a letter to the Attorney Generals office detailing your suspicions and evidence. It will work.

I remember he was telling the boss who the top guy of the two six was and that he heard how he was making all these threats and gearing up for a war. He went on and on about it and of course the commander not knowing any better ate it all up because it sounded good. The problem, of course is that people who actually know things about that area know that the guy angelo was talking about was dead for about a year and a half. complete phony and ball licker with half a brain.

Jokes on all you with no clout.
Special Ed says that he gave a "verbal order" that those on the merit board could submit a name BUT they couldn't vote on that person. Only the other four on the board could vote on that person!!!

Take about covering up blatant misconduct.

Hey ED - How about you doll out the punishment that these exempts really deserve instead of lying (rule 14 violation) and covering up for them.

Why don't you "real police" do an about face and turn your backs to merit hacks when they address roll call? Completely ostracized the merit picks as scabs. Don't eat drink or socialize with them or their families.

This is the blind leading the blind at best. A big boss or three who have NEVER read a book during their freshman year in high school, ACT Score where the monkey wins, and 1/2 coward decide who gets promoted. Eli's criteria was simply being Greek. Eli, you told us at the study group at the Greek Church on Sheffield that we would have to know the material as if we were Criminal Law expert. Sending a person who don't do the streets like fuckin maids don't do windows is SOOO INSULTING. What that means is those cloated non street working world record breaking flatulance producing as they switch from cheek to cheek to produce more gas from free food. They go to work, hang up the phones with out answering, and get ANGRY when they're movie is disrupted.
It's a fucking joke. Good, Solid Coppers push beat cars for 25 years, develop health issues, and croak in less than three years. These other cowards and bums that are half way thru a "Hail Mary" cuz a black dude or Hspanic Dude has words with the promoted Cop. The newly promoted cops are so shit scared they can't contribute to the conversation.
This soon to be CTA Organization will only promote those that fall under WHACK. If Ur lookin for a career where U will be promoted and not have Federal charges thrown at U effecting your wife and kids. That's should be fun! A Beautiful Day for Baseball.
This job is a sad joke.
2)Families that consistently end up in white shirts quickly. Once again, if these families are so academically inclined and show genius levels(as a family like Tesla or Jonas Saulk)why would they even consider Police work? They could cure a vicious disease like Ole Jonas or tap into the atmosphere like Tesla did. Instead they take their white shirts cuz they're FRAUDS! They wouldn't know what to do in a Chemistry Lab except for lighting their smoke.
When this BULLSHIT, always lying command staff, and I get to bounce out of here it'll be a GREAT DAY in my Life and my Families too.
I bet Ya if I was truly able to look someone running Chicago's POlice, Firefighters, or the 5th floor is in possession of an Elon Musk Tesla.
Scum bag, cheating, rules are for the beat car pushers not the white shirts.

If you have no juice, you have to study your ass off. The ones that make it legit off the list have to go up against those that already know they are going to get it(merit) and those that get the answers(like Lt Fenner and Lt Maryat Hall). It's fair!

Nearly 20 years of this shit and this is just another reason why I don't give a flying fuck anymore. I think anyone out there doing proactive police work for this corrupt city and department is out of their minds. And don't give me any bullshit about the "good" citizens that deserve a proactive CPD. The same citizens have been voting these corrupt democrats in for the last 60 years and they're the first ones to remain silent when you get thrown under the bus by these corrupt merit hacks. I'm old, tired, and can't wait to retire from this cesspool of corruption. That is if they haven't stolen our pension completely by then.

(OT) who leaks nonsense like this:

12 Chicago SWAT officers suspended for critical mistake made during barricade situation

By: Craig Wall
POSTED:FEB 23 2017 08:54PM CST
UPDATED:FEB 23 2017 09:48PM CST
FOX 32 NEWS - A dozen Chicago SWAT officers have been suspended for a critical mistake during a barricade situation.

It was a volatile situation that unfolded on Chicago's Southeast Side December 1st. The Commander of the 4th District, Noel Sanchez, was working in the 8800 block of South Sanginaw when his unmarked police car was shot at and the suspects had run into a nearby home.
A barricade situation ensued and the SWAT team was called out to secure the situation and try to talk the offenders into surrendering.

12 Chicago SWAT officers suspended for critical mistake made during barricade situation
For five hours tensions ran high, but finally police were able to end the situation peacefully and take several people into custody.

SWAT officers then went through the home to make sure there was no one else inside and then left after determining the situation and the home was all clear.

The problem was they did not search the home thoroughly enough. Police told FOX 32 that there were actually two people still hiding in a crawl space inside the home. They were discovered when police officers from the 4th District went into the home after SWAT left.

Had the men been armed, other officers could potentially have been shot. For that critical mistake, 12 SWAT officers received one day suspensions without pay and were required to be retrained.

Police say the reprimands were handed down two to three weeks ago and the officers involved have already served their suspensions.

Five people were arrested in that situation and several guns confiscated.

If that situation went down as the news release says it did, those SWAT officers are fortunate that they received ONLY one day suspensions. Those guys aren't supposed to make mistakes like that (but neither is any other officer in the CPD).

"Also perplexing is Kevin Graham who states that he's the working police when his assignment is house security for our weasel of a Mayor."

Wrong, dipshit. Although I am surprised that he can handle Uptown.

The problem is there were/are a handful of ghost cars/ghost posts
in Uptown who hid and did nothing while the guys assigned to
1914 were run ragged with handling the Uptown crazy.

It's surprising that there hasn't been a real Police involved
tragedy in Uptown with all the unmedicated crazy going on.

In regards to Kevin graham being a worker

Kevin is a nice guy. He has never been a worker. Workers do not seek out foot posts.

Furthermore, no one has ever been run ragged working in uptown. You might have a full moon once in a while and be busy then. If you think that is busy you obviously have never worked in a ghetto district.

Someone who knows
