Opening Closed Investigations?

So we got an e-mail recently that had some info on a GoFundMe page for two guys who were stripped and placed in a no-pay status.

What was startling about the entire incident is that they were stripped for an alleged Rule violation - over 13 years ago. The date of incident is 2003 and supposedly, one or both officers signed off on and served suspension time.

So who is opening 13 year old beefs and why?

The mayor needs a high number of officer punished and terminated!

Election time will soon be near for RAHM and he will drag out high numbers of police suspended and fired to gain black votes.

Why do you think the court section give out a day automatically! Hell they cant even actually write the spar they copy it.

Here's another one. A detective on disability got divorced over ten years ago and never notified the city of the divorce. The city has been paying the spouse's insurance which is regularly used. Do we really have this many idiots on the job. City to send out marriage declarations to all active members. This should be interesting.

It seems that the plan was to revisit already
adjudicated beefs under cover of the
not-gonna-happen-now consent decree that Rahm
was so hot to have put in place.

Nothing appeals to the low-information electorate
more than "we're finally gonna punish those out
of control Cops," which Rahm was assured of getting
lots of mileage out of for the 2019 mayoral election.

"Winning is everything," Rahm said.

He wins a third term in 2019 then resigns to run for
president in 2020.

Rahm's on a tight schedule.

Imagine the positive media spin that was pre-planned...

"I took on those wild-assed Chicago Cops and forced
them into a consent decree to break their culture of
corruption and their 'blue code of silence.'

I also put the Cops on a diet and made them do more
with less and saving Billions by cutting staff,
cutting expenditures and reducing healthcare
and pension costs.

Elect me President or else..."

All part of the narrative of "Taking On The Police"
while trying not to upset the armed wing of the
catered-to constituency known as Dude Inc.

Chicago politicians would rather piss off the law
abiding, tax paying citizens, Policemen, Firemen
and others who play a part in trying to keep this
place passably civilized and habitable, than run
the risk of getting sideways with Dude Inc...

What purpose does it serve for them to go back that far and search for stuff that was supposedly 'signed off on'? So you can get fired for some shit you did eons ago and already took days for. Not good enough for them I guess. They have to keep sacrificing you at the alter of 'Rhams appeasment to the community politics'.

Designated department personnel along with civilian oversight are currently reviewing accusations from years ago and heads will be chopped. Thought nothing of it, until putting the 2and2 together... Why would the city all of the sudden administer 2 tests back to back, nothing is a coincidence in this department.

Clue: Few might be fixing to be fired.

You have to have a legitimate reason to reopen a beef. IPRA does not do things legitimately. IPRA also does not suffer any consequences when they screw you over.

You can sign off on suspension time and the Supt can increase it. Once you serve the time it should be over, but we know what happened to Cozzi.

Five years is supposed to be the limit in an investigation according to the Chicago police board unless the reset button has been hit.

These officers have to prove that hitting the reset button was not legal, that there was no new information.

Best of luck guys. We are rooting for you.

No, they never took time or finished the investigation. There was a lawsuit for the incident and most of the investigation didn't take place until that finished. The investigation literally went on for that long. They got caught lying for a pursuit and they got caught bad. If it's a chase just say it's a chase especially if normal people get hurt. They tried covering their tracks.

No jack that's not a fact! Many have been cleared, served suspensions and have had things reopened, some have even been brought up on charges! The reality is if your unfortunate to be cleared next thing you know your in federal court sworn in as the defendant with the "United States vs you" and opening question statement is "state your assets and liabilities" that is reality! If you think all the bullshit pieces of paper and "awards" mean anything your delusional. They mean absolutely nothing, you hang them on your wall, or throw them in a drawer.

It is an extremely sad state of affairs what is being done to the once proud CPD, from dishonest media, to the city freely throwing police officers under the bus and freely scooping out hundreds of millions in taxpayers money for lawsuits without fighting all of them!

Look at the new weed General Order. The arrest of the urban yourh for posession of weed is dropping like a bag of bricks. Rahm will point to the lower arress as proof of his reforms of out of control racist profiling police is taking hiold. However he wont push that the officers aren't even allowed to contact the Juveniles parent of the ticket if issued. It s a win win for him. Less arrested and crime down to parents. Isn't dear leader great. fetal mentality will only be used to blame the police for a rise in crime. But the lower arrest in contrast to broken windows theory will be his police reforms working against a corrupt police department taking hiold.

This wasn't a witch hunt. These guys tried to play a game with a pursuit and concoct a story that didn't give and ended up biting them in the behind. They didn't re opens the case. The case has been pending since it happened 13 years ago. It got held up by a civil lawsuit and a long civil trial that finally ended in 2015. After the civil trial they wrapped up the investigation and they recommended firing. Eddie Johnson didn't agree and asked for a long suspension. The police board disagreed and said they should be fired. Trust me, there is much more to this story than meets the eye. The story these coppers came up was rediculous. Go onto the website for the police board and read all about the case and how they got caught up, you won't be as sympathetic with what happened. Some guys just can't help themselves. If the would have told the truth they would have ended up taking maybe a day.. at most 3 and it would have been all over with.

Rahm wants to be able to say during his next campaign for mayor that he cleaned house at CPD after the Laquan McDonald shooting. He doesn't care if the beefs are brand new or 20 years old. He is looking for heads. In addition, Foxx will also be looking at old incidents to see if she can find some POs to prosecute. She has to crucify some coppers in order to satisfy her base including the revruns. Be smart. Do not give Rahm and Foxx the opportunity to put you in a trick bag. Proactive policing is fraught with danger for the police in today's anti police climate.

Civil rights complaint violation had expired and/or the lawyers settled, so now it's all up to the City witchhunt, therefore
The PrickFoxxRahmWrinkle Office is stretching for a few dozen scapegoats of non-colour to make their point to the community.
The New Administrations Attorney General is not going forward to pander to Rahm Emanuel evaporating political agenda.
The goal is to fire somebody, but allow past mayor appointed Merit Exempt Hacks to slither into retirement without much notice.

Speaking of civil rights violations (solely placed on the individual law enforcement officer), why in the grand scope of the violation the Mayor, The Count Board President, the Stupid InTended, the inept Judges, who are all allowing the bloodshed, the maiming and basically ignoring the escalating violent crime held accountable to the civil rights of just the bystanders?

The only asshole in the bunch is the lowly patrolman getting brought before the constant firing squad of biased social justice motormouths.
Why is the City,County and State officials getting the free pass and immunity ?

Is there any reason to be pro-active?

Yes, The original case is old. The Sgt was recently involved in a deposition in relation to a lawsuit from the original pursuit that he took time for.

Not true. Each CBA has language that restricts any complaint over five years from being investigated unless the superintendent authorizes the investigation. The problem is there is no criteria for when the superintendent can do that. He can do whatever he wants. Language aside, in practice there really is no restriction.

You will be suspended with out pay, You will write an attorney a check for $05-10 thousand to start. You will have it go on for years when you thought months. The above attorney deposit will be gone in a blink and they will bill you $1500-2000 every time you turn around. You will go into foreclosure and your credit will be ruined. The people who called and texted when it started will all fade away with the exception of one or two if you're lucky.If you do wind up winning you will get your job back and back pay minus about 45% for taxes (due to the large amount of the check) and payment to the pension board for the time you were off.When you add the amount you paid your attorney,you will have maybe 20% of the gross amount. The Attorney will explain to you that you have been made Whole in the eyes of the court and it is time to take your foreclosed,200 credit score ass back to work because there is no Millions of $$, civil rights federal case or naming city hall in your honor. DON'T listen to the bullsh*t you hear from people who don't know, if they decide to come after you they have all the time, attorneys and tax payer money to stretch you out for years and they know you don't. The above is a non-criminal beef,if it's criminal add bond money and God forbid Jail time,If you lose you have no house,no credit,no job and terminated as a Law enforcement officer on your resume. What job do you qualify for if all you have ever been is the Police...think about it. Ask any Copper who has been there,the day you hear suspended with-out is the end of life as you know it.

Do you know how many new-issue medical cards you would have had to change out over the past 10 years? The divorced former-wife was able to use the medical insurance only because her EX gave her access to the new-issue cards over the past 10 years, meaning he was in on the scam himself. Maybe both of them should be jailed by BS/BC of Illinois.

Here is the problem with many cases. There is a incident between the police and a citizen. The citizen files a complaint with IPRA. IPRA begins the investigation. The citizen obtains a lawyer. The lawyer tells the citizen if IPRA calls you for a statement tell them that on advice of consul, at this time, I can not give you a statement but I will give you a statement at a later date. The lawyer files a law suite claiming his clients rights were violated. HERE LIES THE ISSUE: Any statement regarding the incident are discoverable in court including any statements the complainant and/or witnesses give to IPRA. The complainant and witness tell IPRA or IAD because of a pending law suite I have been advised that any statement I give can and will be used in the up coming law suite. The complainant and witnesses tell IPRA and IAD after the law suite is settled they will be available for statements. According to directives from the Cooperation Council IPRA and the IAD can not pressure the complainant or witnesses to give statements prior to the settlement of the law suite. After the law suite gets settled the CC is supposedly to notify IPRA and the IAD of the outcome. This might take years. It depends on if the notifications are sent to the units. Depending on the outcome many complaints do not want to bother because they received monies from the city. If this is the case then the case is closed. If the complainant/witnesses are willing to give statements than the case is reopened and investigated. One of the things the present IPRA administrator has done is she went back and looked into any cases that were not fully investigated due to a law suite. There are literally hundreds of case that are being examined at the present time. This is why this is occurring. There is going to be more such cases in the future. I hate to say it but YOU GOT WHAT YOU ASKED FOR. For years and years all everyone has said on this blog that IPRA was fucked up and that they were out to get the police. IPRA is going and so is the 6/7% of cases they sustained. The present chief administrator has told the investigators she wants cases sustained. Her orders are "get them on something, anything". There is going to be an increase of sustained cases due to this directive. This get them at any cost also affects shooting cases. In previous administrations, IPRA found only 4 shooting out of almost 450 as not justified! Again, the present administrator goes over shooting cases with a fine tooth comb. In previous administrations boarder line shootings were given the benefit of the doubt, not now. If the case is boarder line than the attitude is sustain the case and let the accused Officers prove otherwise. There is several issues in play here: It is going to get worse. With the consent degree Rahm is going to push thru the recommendations of the justice department with or without Sessions. Rahm wants to get his "NUMBERS UP ON POLICE PUNISHMENT" Rahm also wants to break the union by forcing bankrupting them. Flood the union with so many cases that the membership is either going to baulk at higher union dues or force the union to pick and choose case it defends. There is another issue here: the movement that complainant do not have to sign affidavits. Rahm's thinking is flood IPRA with soo many cases that the union will be forced to raise dues because of all the legal representation or pick and choose. In other words BREAK THE UNION. Let me say this, in previous IPRA Administrations there were cases that were sustained that SHOULD NOT HAVE BEEN. There were several cases that were sustained that was a miscarriage of justice. However taking everything into consideration the previous administrations were nothing compared to the present administration. Again, you got what you asked for now the department members are paying the price. If anyone doubts me just look at the previous years numbers????? A retired IPRA Investigator

What I don't understand, I read the complaint, it's on the IPRA/Police discipline page

https://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/cpb/provdrs/police_discipline.html

Is if their case was mediated in 2006, how can they fire them in 2017? 11 years after mediation, and 13 years after the incident. You could probably fire 79 percent of the department if we are playing by these rules.

Here's another one. A detective on disability got divorced over ten years ago and never notified the city of the divorce. The city has been paying the spouse's insurance which is regularly used. Do we really have this many idiots on the job. City to send out marriage declarations to all active members. This should be interesting.

Do you know how many new-issue medical cards you would have had to change out over the past 10 years? The divorced former-wife was able to use the medical insurance only because her EX gave her access to the new-issue cards over the past 10 years, meaning he was in on the scam himself. Maybe both of them should be jailed by BS/BC of Illinois.

I think what they are looking at is their testimony and deposition in the civil trial on the case. That has just occurred in the last year or so

My insurance card stayed the same for almost 10 years, never saw and expiration date on any card and was never told by the drs office or hospital that my card was out of date
Also maybe you should be aware that the city is self insured and BC/BS only administers the plan.
