No Good Deed..... (UPDATE)

  • The Chicago Police Department is investigating one of its officers after he helped three young girls found living in an abandoned home. The officer set up a GoFundMe page for the girls who were known as the Englewood Angels. The police department said the officer violated its policy by helping the girls.

    Chicago Police Sergeant Charles Artz is learning that no good deed goes unpunished. After discovering the deplorable conditions the girls were living in, Artz launched the effort to raise money and supplies for the kids and the grandmother who agreed to take care of them. Dolores Anderson has a roof over her head and, for now, enough food and clothes to help raise her granddaughters who were found living in squalor just a few months ago.

    [...] Anderson said she would be homeless and the girls would be living in foster care if it wasn't for the generosity of 7th district Chicago police officers. With approval from his superiors, Artz spearheaded an effort to raise money through a GoFundMe page. Now, Artz is under investigation for violating police department policy.
So who are the "superiors" who granted the approval and why aren't they stepping forward to take their share of the hit? Are these teflon-superiors? Special lieutenants from some special units? The commander is one of the twins running the two worst districts in the city. It would seem that this one didn't get his fair share of testosterone in the womb.
  • "I believe it is waste of time, energy and money because he is a good man. I have good feelings about people and he is one of the best," Anderson said.

    Artz is accused of violating rule 52 which prohibits officers of seeking or soliciting contributions of any kind from anyone. The complaint against him was lodged by CPD Internal Affairs Commander Robert Klimas.

    Calling the policy obscure and outdated, Chicago police sergeant's union president Jim Ade said the investigation is just another nail in the coffin for police morale. "Take a guy running across the street saving someone from a burning building and three months later he gets a ticket for jay walking, that is what the department is doing," he said.

    And saving the three young girls is exactly what Anderson and Artz's supporters said he has done. Now the police sergeant has a complaint on his record. "He didn't discharge his weapon on nobody, he didn't beat nobody, he didn't curse at nobody, I mean, he stepped out to help some babies," Andrew Holmes, community activist, said.

    Holmes and the police sergeants' union said the Artz investigation sends the wrong message during a time when police superintendent Eddie Johnson is calling for more positive interaction between police and the community. Even if Artz is exonerated, he will always have a complaint logged on his record.
The grandmother isn't complaining. The community activist isn't complaining. No one in Englewood is complaining (which is a miracle in and of itself). The only one complaining is the Commander of IAD, a Bureau currently in the crosshairs of the biggest (known) promotional scandal in Department history.

And if Special Ed had a single hair on his sack, that commander would be back in a District working midnights by this weekend. You want "positive interaction" Ed? And this stroke files a complaint against the sergeant? You and he can both go fuck yourselves if this isn't remedied immediately.

UPDATE: Comments are saying that this is the last of the feebs that J-Fled brought over to run the department, and he can't be demoted. That brings up a whole new theory. He isn't (and can't) get a pension from CPD, and he can't collect unemployment unless he's fired, so he did this to piss off everyone, up to and including Burke and Rahm, who already signed off on a City Council resolution saluting his "community interaction."

Voila! Fired....and an unemployment check! Is that plausible?

At least PBPA President Jim Ade spoke out on behalf of the Sergeant. If it had been a PO, you wouldn't have heard a peep out of Disability Dean. He's much too worried about losing the runoff election.

This insane punitive act is to show the world that the Chicago Police Department takes seriously any action that violates the Rules and Regulations, thus holding all accountable. Well not all accountable. Not those caught cheating.

Remember, the Rules are for thee, not for me.

This IAD commander should also be under investigation for impartial investigation practices. If this Sergeant gets accused of a Rule 52 violation, then why hasn't this commander accused the Sergeant's Supervisor's who approve this? Why hasn't he accused Officers who participated with Dunkin Donuts Cops On Rooftops of Rule 52 violation? Why hasn't he accused the Department Chaplins of Rule 52 violation when they seek donations to feed the hungry? Why hasn't he accused the Officers, who participation in Cops For Kids Bowling of a Rule 52 violation for raising funds for Big Brothers & Sisters? They all seek or solicit donations, yet these events helps others and promotes the Department. This commander (no caps as he does not have my respect) should be recommending a Department award for this Sergeant instead of filing a complaint, but that would take a set.

This case is so egregious that I think there has to be more to the story. If not, then this is the greatest example of a lack of common sense I've seen in my 16 years with the city. Considering that the head of IAD is an appointed position, the Superintendent should immediately demote and transfer Klimas. It woukd show the community and the department that absurd supervisory decisions will result in a removal from said supervisory positions.

It looks like Artz won't name the superiors who okayed this and who can blame him. So here's what you do: Just name the entire command structure of that district. Name and Rank. Post it right here on this blog with the disclaimer that "One or more of these supervisors is suffering from Integrity Atrophy Disorder. Please give what you can to help." Then link to your own GoFundMe page for St. Baldrick's or another charity.

Normally, complaints initiated by the head of IAD are at the behest of the Superintendent of Police. Is that the case in this instance? Either way, this wouldn't be the first time the Department brass gets serious egg on their faces once a "Klimas complaint" goes public, via the mainstream media. Just ask J-Fled.

Playing devil's advocate for a moment... Maybe someone (media/politician/citizen) approached the Department to commend the outstanding efforts of the sergeant? Perhaps they even thought some recognition should be in order? Once the Department became aware of a rule violation (technical or not), ethically they would be compelled to "investigate" the rule violation. If this is nothing more than a "technical violation", the disposition will be "violation noted - no disciplinary action."

I think a few of us have heard a story or two of a member receiving a medal at an awards ceremony in the morning, only to be stripped and suspended later the same day concerning the same event? Perhaps this will play in reverse? Perhaps after the CR is disposed of, the sergeant will receive an award from the Department and/or the Chicago City Council for his selfless efforts at doing what great police officers do - helping the citizens they serve.

If the brass had any brains at all, the Superintendent himself should get out in front of this NOW and publicly commend the sergeant's apparent efforts while the technicalities are looked into. That maybe too much to ask though. They are probably huddled together at HQ, having meeting after meeting, trying to figure out what to do. During the J-Fled "Klimas complaint" I mentioned earlier, they held meetings for three days before white smoke arose from the tower.

Whatever happens, don't be discouraged from exercising a little humanity and compassion to others when your heart tells you too. There is absolutely nothing wrong with that.

If Klimas had retired from a City of Chicago position and was collecting a pension when he was hired at CPD, you are correct, he would not be able to get a second City of Chicago pension, however, Klimas did not retire from a City of Chicago position, therefore, he is eligible to participate in our retirement fund and can get a pension, as long as he satisfies the age and service requirement, and he cannot be considered a double dipper as far as the City of Chicago is concerned because he never "dipped" in the first place!

IAD cannot clean up their own House, but they are going after this Sgt.? We are at a crossroads with IAD, and the Superintendent and Kilmas knows it. If the truth is that there was a fixed promotional exam, involving IAD Supervisors (Sgts); virtually every investigation that they supervised or took part in is now questionable. If subpoenaed in to testify, are they going to appear at a Police Board Hearing, knowing that everything they say may be challenged as perjury? If a Federal Agent is Impeached or their testimony questionable, their careers are virtually over, because they can no longer be "Credible" witnesses giving "Credible" testimony! Remember Finnegan and the SOS Fiasco? A straight shooter who never had a beef in 8 yrs on the job was in SOS. He went to testify on an arrest he had made a year before Finnegan was taken down, and when he went to court, the ASA saw the Unit on the arrest report and told him, "Sign Out. We're going to drop the case, your Unit has no credibility." Those of you in SOS back then know this is true. So are we going to see that with IAD? Any cop who cuts a deal at this point is a fool. Notify your attorneys about the cloud hanging over IAD. MAKE SURE THAT IF YOU ARE BROUGHT UP ON ANY CHARGE, THAT YOUR LAWYER MAKE THE IAD AGENT, UNDER OATH, STATE WHO HIS/HER SUPERVISOR WAS. IF THAT SUPERVISOR WAS ONE OF THESE DESPICABLE LIEUTENANTS, HOLD THAT KNOWLEDGE IN RESERVE. BECAUSE EVERYONE INVOLVED IN THIS PROMOTION SCANDAL IS A LIAR, FRAUD AND HAS NO CREDIBILITY. Going after this Sgt. is absurd and hideous. Kilmas and the other Fed., who took over IPRA, he was from DEA, learned early that Chicago is rotten. I had occasion to attend a function where some DEA people were present, and he was lamenting how he got stuck with "Dogs" as investigators, but they were too heavy politically to move. Now remember, this was the "Reformer" brought in to make things right. I have a feeling the same thing happened to Kilmas, so now he is trying to buy some good ink by nailing this Sgt..Mr. Kilmas, it is too late, you have been soiled and tainted by the cesspool known as Chicago. Burning some innocent Sgt. will not remove the Stench that is now on you. Brothers and Sisters; Do ABSOLUTELY Nothing more than Cover Each Other and answer your calls. Chicago Values, Fu&k Rahm and all of his flunkies and Hacks! Baby "G"

Hello Everyone, My name is Amanda Angelo. I am the proud pet parent of a handsome little gentleman dog named Rocky. On January 25, 2016 Rocky was taken to the Vet for a basic dental cleaning. During this cleaning something went terribly wrong, Rocky's blood pressure spiked and his heart stopped. He was dead. The doctors revived him after administering CPR for 15 minutes. However, he is currently on Life Support in the Intensive Care Unit. The cost of his care is much more than myself or my family can afford. We are asking, please, for your help to save this beloved family member. He is making some small progress but is no where near out of the woods. Any donation that you could make helps greatly. My family and I are so grateful for your support at this time. This dog means the world to many people. Here you go IAD investigate this one.

The "rule" has to be based on some legal precedent somewhere that would allow for others to sue because these girls were aided in this way but then they themselves were not. The set up, of course, is how DARE someone seek aid and help from anyone and anything besides GOVERNMENT! See it? The rules and the law is set up to PROTECT government dependency and job security for....wait for it....other civil service UNION workers, social service whether it be city or State workers.

As for the unemployment idea, any employer can fight an unemployment claim and it would be interesting to see how that angle plays out. I submit to you that what I said prior is far more at work here than the latter. Fellas and gals, you need to understand that your union is more like a trade union than all of the other civil service unions, in that, when you guys don't produce a "profit" there really are real world consequences. This is not true among the rest of the Civil Service Army of unions that spend their days pushing papers and bothering people (think EPA). Those in those areas are TRUE BELIEVERS is the idea that ONLY government can help, only THEY are "qualified" to decide what is best.

As it is with so many other examples, We Told You So. For many years the politicians have convinced you guys that you guys are in with the in crowd, aside from the rest of us peons out here in Citizenland. The more time that passes, the more examples come to pass proving us right. You are viewed as expendable, just like us. You are not in their little club and they will cast you out and toss you under the bus in a New York Millisecond. Let this example here be a lesson to you all. If you do not tow THEIR line for them - they will hang you.

As a group I suggest you think hard about which side you want to be on as this drama unfolds. You will be stronger, a lot stronger, if you stand as a group with us, the people, like this cop right here did on his own. You will serve THEM or you will offer your service to us. It really is time to choose which it is you want to be known as your position.

I think we all have those moments on the job where we see poor kids and very thankful victims, wether by crime or circumstance, that we wish we could help or do more for. This feeling is noble and doesn't have a racial component. You figured out a way to help and no punishment can take that away. You wonder why we are fetal as fuck. Even when doing something good that doesn't involve using force against a completely violent POS, we see instances where good men are rolled over. Again, fuck the FBI and this asshole fake commander.

Another angle to this story. I imagine that more than the children and grandmother benefited from the fund raiser. I believe the Sgt and all the officers who worked and donated were able to use this as coping mechanism to deal with having seen and been involved in such an example of inhumanity. A much healthier outlet to the shock and emotional trauma that comes with handling jobs like that one. Much better than going to the local watering hole or taking it out on our families at home. I think this Sgt's actions are a shining example of the type of leadership this department needs and sadly lacks. If I were Supt. for a day, the commander would be fired immediately since he apparently can't be dumped. And, as a Sgt myself, I will use his example to help the officers under my care when a similar situation arises.

Desk Duty for a Decade? Power-Stripped Police Sometimes Languish for Years
https://www.dnainfo.com/chicago/20160104/downtown/80-officers-are-on-disciplinary-desk-duty-some-dating-back-2006

Robert Klimas, Internal Affairs commander, told the City Council recently that about 80 officers are on administrative duty, pending investigations. The time an officer can be on administrative duty, he said, ranges from 30 days to years, with the longest current open cases going back almost a decade, to 2006.

then he is over here:
http://www.crimefilenews.com/2010/08/all-cops-must-protect-lt-john-andrews.html

excerpt:

Chicago, IL—Chicago police Lt. John Andrews saw a catastrophic mess and his fellow officers and the public endangered. Chicago’s law enforcement problems are getting worse by the hour. Instead of trying to make anonymous and unverifiable claims Andrews had the incredible courage to publish his story about the destruction of a fine police agency by incompetent clout heavy cretins.

The department began a witch hunt and has snared one for a show trial. They want to terrorize every officer into silence by victimizing Lt. Andrews.

Too many people were hired and promoted in recent years that are simply unqualified to wear the uniform of a Chicago cop. Cops are hired and promoted with the simple qualifications of a political endorsement, sexual services or as organized crime moles.
Lives of Chicagoans and good cops are in jeopardy and someone had to take a stand to get corrective action. Lt. Andrews has nearly 28 years experience on the street and most of that as a trusted supervisor.

Chicago Police Commander Robert Klimas of Unit #121 made the complaint against Lt. Andrews obtaining a Complaint Register number. They hauled Lt. Andrews into the 35th Street woodshed and gave him his administrative rights to start the ball rolling for his separation from the department.

There is a First Amendment in America but Chicago police officers cannot exercise it by simply telling the truth. The real issue is the legitimacy of the article that damns political corruption. Instead of investigating Andrews they need to investigate the blatant transformation of a once proud police agency into a political cesspool.

why is this public information easily found on any computer search?

I don't know what's wrong with the police nowadays, for something like this, just say, the bosses ordered you to do what you did; throw this shit on them. However, if you want to handle it by yourself, then before you do something document it for times such as a CR number. Coppers who are organized, write good paper and documented incidents, are usually not bothered by the bosses. You know the pen is mightier then the sword saying; bosses that know someone can put a half decent report together are never bothered with pity bullshit.

At first read it looks terrible, so terrible that it defies reality enough as to make one pause and think, "There has got to be more to this story."

Latest report is they just want to audit and make sure all the funds got to the family, because it was running through a personal checking account. That's not a bad thing, and can actually help protect the copper from an IRS jam over any "undeclared income" if GoFundMe funds crossed a calendar year.

I am not for one second suggesting that there was even a penny of personal gain gleaned from this so don't go there, just saying that transparency on the finances can be a good thing for all concerned. It's best practices for any non-profit and increases donations even. When Klimas sends a clean bill of health, and I'm sure he will, there will be no room for questions or raised eyebrows.

OT Tribune ran an article yesterday on how the city is still using scoop and toss method of financing operating expenses paying a high interest rate. A lot of these payments will come due in a few years. The pension payment has been pushed back a few years. What happens when these massive obligations collide? (after the next mayoral election of course) Huge tax increases? Or pay the LaSalle Street crowd and screw the pensioners?

As every day passes this nonsense gets worse and worse what about the police officers that raise money for the Chicago police memorial fund what about the police officer that had a fundraiser with the chili cook off for them or the other police officer that had a fundraiser for them with some kind of Italian sausage contest all the money was donated to them what is wrong with that the simple answer is the FBI should not be in in the fundraising activities of honest hard-working Chicago police officers they try to take care of their own and also they try to take care of the innocent people that are being bastardized by the media elected and others the same way the police are constantly bastardized by the dishonest media many people are getting the same treatment this man needs to be terminated or forced to resign absolutely positively immediately if not sooner why is he still on the department Jody has been gone for quite a while you need to take the people with you that are causing all the commotion causing so much heart ache that it's not needed for police officers they try to do the right thing sergeant you are a great man thank you for helping these people all this will pass mayor what the hell are you doing what are you alone Eddie hello eddie you were just in Washington playing the big shot did you possibly ask the attorney general who is extremely powerful to look into cheating on the Chicago Police Department and admit that your girlfriend is also involved in the cheating scandal?

Klimas deals with administrative beefs in this way: if you truly believe that you are being railroaded and innocent of all charges and don't accept the first offer of suspension, but instead ask IAD to investigate the case further by means of evidence.(especially when it involves a high ranking member) YOU WILL GET FUCKED. This guy will triple your suspension without just cause, simply cause he can! He will try and fire you at all costs. He has no qualms about testilying under oath as he did in my case. His rat squad follows suit. He will say you were uncooperative and a horrible police officer and termination if he could, would be his recommendation. Too bad you piece if shit, precedence has been set, ironically by your own IAD people.

You ever go to a fundraiser? A golf outing, retirement parties? Where do think those prizes, baskets, "discounts" come from? SOLICITING, genius . Same goes for St Jude, the memorial, st baldricks, cops 4 kids...all the stuff the dept pushes results from some type of soliciting somewhere along the line, whether it's from the citizen, budin6owner, or corporation.

KLIMAS is setting up a defense.

Take notes special ED.

When special Ed comes back from Washington trying to prove he is smart he will be tempted to screw with KLIMAS.

KLIMAS then goes and cries to a lawyer about the whistle blower rules which will make him untouchable. ED will be told by the IG to not touch KLIMAS.

A PAY out will be asked for and the Mayor will hand over a boat load of cash to rid himself of this nitwit who outsmarted the dimwit!

What a truly wonderful story of police officers helping this family in need. Straight from their hearts. Any wonder cops won't do any work except the very minimum. Thank God for this seragent and the other officers who stepped in and saved this family. This is the CPD at it's finest. How many acts of kindness and help are given every day by officers in this city and elsewhere. There should be an investigation to find out who made the complaint against these officers and why the head of the IAD decided to go after them for being kind and concerned for citizens of our city. This entire story is a disgrace.

Klimas was brought in to clean up the SOS scandal. You know, the one where a bunch of coppers spent OVER A DECADE in stripped status. His one purpose for being hired and he couldn't finish it in almost 10 years. This guy has been stealing Commander's pay and taken up a spot that could actually be used to do something at IAD and the only way he survives is claiming to be the only non-retarded exempt left there.

First of all, "If Klimas had retired from a City of Chicago position and was collecting a pension when he was hired at CPD, you are correct, he would not be able to get a second City of Chicago pension, however, Klimas did not retire from a City of Chicago position, therefore, he is eligible to participate in our retirement fund and can get a pension, as long as he satisfies the age and service requirement, and he cannot be considered a double dipper as far as the City of Chicago is concerned because he never "dipped" in the first place!"

is wrong. He CANNOT be a member of the PABF. He can, however, join the Municipal Employees Fund after one year of employment.

Second, think for a moment - what's really behind the CR? Remember the saying, "Follow the money"? Now you're catching on. This isn't Artz' first rodeo. He's embraced Rahm's concept of taking advantage of a crisis.

At first read it looks terrible, so terrible that it defies reality enough as to make one pause and think, "There has got to be more to this story."

Latest report is they just want to audit and make sure all the funds got to the family, because it was running through a personal checking account. That's not a bad thing, and can actually help protect the copper from an IRS jam over any "undeclared income" if GoFundMe funds crossed a calendar year.

I am not for one second suggesting that there was even a penny of personal gain gleaned from this so don't go there, just saying that transparency on the finances can be a good thing for all concerned. It's best practices for any non-profit and increases donations even. When Klimas sends a clean bill of health, and I'm sure he will, there will be no room for questions or raised eyebrows.

3/17/2017 03:21:00 PM

If you are correct, what a horrible way to ensure the funds are accounted for? A complete public relations nightmare and a severe blow to the morale of street officers. How can Johnson ignore this issue? If there are questions about the funds, then say so. To let this story linger for days, even weeks will push even more officers to "fetal position". In regards to soliciting funds, there is currently a big push for childhood cancer with St. Baldrick's event. Is this worthwhile event a violation of rule 52? Pick and choose your battles based on what? SMDH

Anyone fired or laid off from a job can file for unemployment. The state will then send the employer a form asking them if they want to contest the ex employee's application. If the employer doesn't contest the ex employee's application that person will get the benefit and the employer's unemployement tax will surely go up. Even if the employer contests the application stating that person was fired for cause in almost every instance the state will still grant the benefit. Now here is where it gets strange; if a large employer wants to fight the the granting of the benefit they have to get thier attorney to fight it through a legal process resulting in a hearing. If the hearing officer determines that the ex employee was fired for cause then that person doesn't get the benefit. If the hearing officer determines that the ex employee was not terminated for cause then that person gets the benefit and the employer's unemployment tax goes up and on top of that he has to pay the attorney for a lost case. The same process is in place for a small employer BUT, and here's the wierd part, if the ex employee is granted the benefit after the initial application, despite the employer contesting it, the STATE will pay for the small employer to hire an attorney to fight its OWN decision. Being a small business owner, been there done that.

Have the mayor or eddie demanded this goofs resignation letter yet hey media again no hanging fruit but then again you are so dishonest and owned by the mayors office and scared so cowardly you will do nothing we have absolutely positively no independent media in this city of carnage. Officers especially you young ones pay attention this is the kind of bullshit that is being put on officers that try to do the right thing the sergeant was sitting in example of compassion and how we should help out the people that really need it. This man is a total Autre failure in the eyes of working police officers this man Robert has never been the police he has no idea what it is like to put on the uniform oh wait a minute he does wear our uniform doesn't he? But when he wears our uniform it is like he is still wearing his Halloween costume because he did not turn it he does not deserve it another very disgracful poser wearing her uniform but then again he is like the rest of the so-called command staff who are there only to get a big pension dip their pensions up again Kenny are you looking into this like you said we would have parity with the Chicago fire department pension find who stood up to save the money of the working fire fighters well you sir obviously are too scared to stand up and protect our pension fun and stop this gold braid rip off!

This is just another reason to look at the bosses and laugh because the clowns they are and always will be but yet the joke is on us the hard-working police officers that have been damaged hurt and our health not in the best condition but yeah these people drive a brand-new vehicles play the role of the The big shot but we all know this is just a fallacy they wear our uniform but just like Robert they are total failures this tension rip off my. Can he just do it stop being so scared we are funded in less than 25% we are the worst pension fund for police in United States of America and you that Pension Board leaders even gave away $60 million to Daley relatives and then lost all of our money who is it that signed off Pension board leadership I don't worry you're not to say nothing yet but a part of the justice is been notified and this is just another matter that they promised to look into so be the first want to talk so you get the first seat on the bus we are getting sick of our money being miss you miss handled and freely given away or scandalous acts by the electorates family.
