Time to Step Up FOP

  • A day after the election of a harder-line Chicago Fraternal Order of Police president, an array of black elected officials Thursday called for Mayor Rahm Emanuel to demand police contract changes they say would make it easier to report misconduct by cops without fear of reprisal.

    City Council Black Caucus Chairman Ald. Roderick Sawyer, 6th, said the 18-member group he leads will vote against a new police contract if those changes aren't included. He also said he has enough support from aldermen outside the caucus to kill a proposed deal.

    "The FOP contract has been preserving and protecting a culture of racism and violence in our Police Department for far too long," Sawyer said while standing with African-American federal, state, county and city officials. "Now is our chance to change that once and for all, and I would challenge the FOP to contact us and meet with us to discuss what's beneficial for the entirety of the city of Chicago, not just the rank-and-file members of the Police Department."
Point of order - the FOP represents the rank-and-file members of the Department, not the city. Representing the city is the aldercreatures job, and a piss-poor job they've been doing for five or six decades now, with about half their number jailed for various offenses, more enriching themselves at the expense of taxpayers, selling their votes to the highest bidder and the mayor.

Could Rod point out to us single instance of how it's supposedly "difficult" to file a complaint? IPRA takes everything that knocks on the door - even things that are specifically banned from being registered as complaints. IPRA takes it all, throws it at the wall, and sees what might stick.

Could Rod also point out a single instance of "reprisal"? We can't recall a single one...except those gotten by police on supervisors for hostile work environments. Those are notoriously common, but never seem to be sustained anywhere because the connected don't live by the same rules as the common folk.

Time for the FOP to demand the City follow the Federal rules regarding investigations for starters.

FOP blinks and then sells out membership, followed by the sgts, lts, and capts.

If all four unions had ANY balls they would ban together and not give in to what would ultimately be the domino effect of collective bargaining, contractual Rights, and Civil Rights for cops of all ranks.

And when the Feds finally move to flick
this gum-bumpin' gump off the Chicago
political gameboard, the first thing
he's going to holler about is "My
RIGHT to due process."

If the "Black Caucus" succeed in
their push to shit in the very
notion of due process and the
right to confront your accuser?

You think Policemen are in a defensive
crouch now?

kevin was on WGN and sounded like a rock head. Listen, we have to wear body cameras. They aren't going anywhere ever. Saying you are against them makes you and us look like we have something to hide out there. If you think logically from a citizens point of view there is NO good reason to not want body cameras.. none. So saying we are against them makes us look stupid with something to hide. Its not 20 years ago or even 2 years ago.. Things are much different. Body cams are here and its the law now. We must have them in the state, every department. PICK YOUR BATTLES Kevin. It cant just always be No No No we wont change anything ever.

Maybe the 1st order of business should be to file a complaint with the Chicago Commision on Human Relations for the mere racial overtones that the "BLACK CAUCUS" represents how many white or Hispanic aldermen are allowed to join.

2nd file a unfair labor practice agaisnt the aldermen this contract isn't ended yet and they are attempting to influence or intimidate this Union.

Let's get to work now Kevin people went to bat for you so don't just stand there taking balls and strikes.

Top priorities for the contract should be :
PENSION: we all want to retire someday and we all want that pension waiting for us when we make it!
Healthcare: police are usually in bad health and a disease can hit you at any age, like cancer! You also want to live long enough to enjoy your pension so we need good healthcare to take preventative measures.
Protection: we need to to have a good team of attorney's who's sole purpose is to protect us and fight for us. We cannot loose any of the protections we have now in fact if this city wants to be legit then let's go the way the Feds do when it comes to shooting incidents!
Salary: let's get that salary up and able to keep up with inflation!
Finally RESIDENCY, lets sue the city and take it up to the Supreme Court if we have too! The city can't use the argument that residency keeps crime down. Bull shit! NYC and LA are much larger cities yet we had more murders than both of them combined! Neither of those departments require residency! Milwaukee made it happen and so have other departments. If we stick together we can make it happen!

Screw the Black Caucus.
The FOP should demand the same contractual protections of most other large municipal police departments and even mirror the Fed's contractual protections.

Isn't it ironic that the same assholes( alderthieves) that don't want the IG to have investigatory authority over them want most or all of our contractual protections taken away?
Do these clowns realize how contract negotiations go? It's traditionally a give and take proposition ... although under jagoff Rahm he ignores the give part and solely focuses on the take,take, take part.

What will the city be prepared to "give" if they plan on doing all this "taking"?

The FOP needs a tried and true professional negotiating team to offset the city's ridiculousness and a professional PR team to keep hammering home our perspective.

Taxpayers are leaving and the city's credit rating is taking a dump.

I don't if any watched the Mayor the other day on Facebook live talking about infrastructure? He said the Feds need to raise the national gas tax and tie it to CPI. I will paraphrase his statement. It takes the politics out of the equation. let's use his exact words and strategy and forego any retro pay in this next contract but pin our raise to CPI. It takes politics out of the equation? Right? So what would the % be on an annual basis that would make sense? Might not be a great idea for us but we should have someone at the FOP look into if it is a possibility. At the very least it will drive the Mayor nuts to use his own words against him.

If this was Mayberry that would make sense. But the only way it would be fair is to show the whole video every time to the public. But that would never happen. Can t show the public what animals most are when u go on a call. What we have to put up with. IT WOULD VIOLATE THEIR RIGHTS TO BE SHOWN WHAT THEY REALLY ARE. And with RAhm pandering to these dogs the only time it will be shown would be if police look bad. Glad to be getting out of this train wreck soon.

They want change eh? So lets give it to them. I am not for losing any protection that we already have. That being said, i would have to agree that being able to change a statement after reviewing video evidence does sound a little shady. Why would we need to amend a statement if we are telling the truth to begin with? (** this is the thought process of the public who doesn't know or care how a stressful incident plays havoc with your perception and your ability to accurately recount the incident exactly as it happened**).

So lets give up the ability to change a statement after viewing video or other evidence.

But here is the catch. If you do not want me to change a statement after viewing evidence, than do not require me to make one until after 72 hours and after I have had a chance to view evidence that could potentially be used against me in a criminal trial in the presence of my lawyer. After that, I will give you a statement that you can lock in.

Criminals do have the right to not say anything and still get to see all the evidence against them before trial. And since they are looking at any way to charge us including making each round fired at a knife wielding lunatic a separate count of agg batt we need more protection than what we already have. They like to throw around that the police are not above the law. Well how about we be held to it just like everyone else is. Along with the same rights against self incrimination if some desk asshole who never worked a day in their life as a po suddenly decides that a couple of your rounds were ok, but the last one was murder. When are the sa's going to change the charge for the thug that beat the female cop (who was afraid of the backlash if she shot him). When are they going to charge him for each punch, each kick??

Body cameras are not here to stay. The former XO of 014 who became the Commander of 014 volunteered 014 to test them. FYI, he became the justice dept laison for CPD.

Inside baseball, many dope addicts may be alive if police didn't have to do a crazy ISR and wear a body camera in the process of a simple street stop.

It's a societal question. How many people do we want dead through gang violence, drug overdose, and other criminal behavior in a body camera/ISR city?

VS.

How many gray area police involved deaths would we tolerate in a no ISR/no body camera city?

I vote for a no body camera/no ISR city where thugs don't roam and rule the streets.

Graham Cracker did a nice job on the Media with his 1-minute presser.
Touché.
But unfortunately this action only works for The President of the United States.
Besides that, we all known whatever Graham Cracker would have said, for better or worse, any pro-Police statement or bashing Rahm and the 48 AlderTheives is subject to editing and likely not suited for inclusion in any of their outlets.

Now that Crackers stiffed the Media, will they ever show up at his behest again?
Not likely.
Should we have another FOP spokesperson plan available (Not Googlemyheinie) to promote our message, say at high profile incidents?

The Police or FOP did not create rising violent crime and murders ...Democrats did and the media ignores it.

CTU Lewis hasn't been as vocal as she was before, lately CPS seems content with whatever Rahm is offering under the table and behind closed doors...they will not Strike on May 1st. Wonder why, it's not for the Kids.

Step up FOP Graham Crackers and speak up now, screw Rotten Rahm because nothing favorable or to the liking of the Department is coming. He does not play nice. He does not play fair and you know this already. Speak out at every opportunity.
Never forget he's the crocodile teared, give to the freeloader, master of the take-a-way demon who boasted on stiffing city retirees, "thank you very much, a $175 million saving".

For the of us - Stay Fetal.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel has changed the entire frame/public opinion of HIS MISCONDUCT and reshaped public opinion so that; we are the problem.

No Mr. Mayor that is not the case at all. You are the problem. You were the one who tried to pay "hush money" to the parents of Laquan Mc Donald. Plus the city council approved the pay out. Then when a journalist. A real journalist asked to the see the video, you fought tooth and nail to not release it until a judge ordered you to do so.

You are the snake and liar Mr. Mayor. You alone caused these problems.

I think as police officers we need to push back against this arrogant asshole of a Mayor. He and along with the media is flipping the switch and saying we are the problem. We should protest at his house and protest in every public venue he goes to so we can tell the public that Mayor Emanuel is the one who tried to hide the video tape of the Laquan Mc Donald shooting. If we as police officers do that then I am confident that he will lose the election.

Also, if we keep reminding the black community that Mayor Emanuel is a snake and he hid the Laquan McDonald shooting then he is toast. I am dead serious about this brothers and sisters.

First of all, anyone who wants to change the residency requirement is out of their mind--if you get to move to the suburbs, who do you think will want to buy your house and live in the city? Property values will SINK if the residency requirement is lifted.

Second, body cameras are good for the police. If you have one, you understand it. If you don't have them yet, keep an open mind. It will take getting used to them, but they are awesome. If you have something to hide or take shortcuts, I can see why you don't want them. Otherwise, the cameras are great for court purposes, great for getting rid of complaints, great for letting outsiders see what we see. After you get them, it will take a while to remember to just turn the dang thing on, then sometimes you will forget to turn them off. You have to watch the snide remarks, but you will learn to remember to keep your comments to yourself, which is sometimes better anyways. 99 percent of citizens like it when you tell them you are wearing a camera. When the racist, insulting, loudmouth citizens are reminded politely to speak a little louder because your camera may not have picked up what they said, 98 percent walk away. You and your partner should remind each other about the cameras being on and off. After you work out the kinks, the cameras are really a great tool.

Once you start thinking that the camera is there for your benefit and not the criminals', and how to use the cameras to YOUR benefit, you will really appreciate them.

As much as the typical hipster millennial hates the oppressive police, they want them in their neighborhoods to keep the savages at bay.

Body cams were the instrument to capture all police misconduct. Amazing how the 3rd largest police dept. in the country didn't have any tasers until a crisis occurred with the citizens. ( never waste a good crisis ). Then sgt's were allowed to carry a taser and when u needed one , u had to call a sgt. , then more crisis occurred resulting in death to citizens and low and behold after the multi million dollar shakedown and taxpayer theft, the third largest police dept finally bought tasers for all officers from a hooked up connected firm, taser int'l. The CPD was always cheap with training and equipment, they still are substandard with respect to these aspects , even the justice dept. agrees with their recent mandate. Nothing will change until the swamp is drained.

Inside baseball, many dope addicts may be alive if police didn't have to do a crazy ISR and wear a body camera in the process of a simple street stop.

It's a societal question. How many people do we want dead through gang violence, drug overdose, and other criminal behavior in a body camera/ISR city?

VS.

How many gray area police involved deaths would we tolerate in a no ISR/no body camera city?

I vote for a no body camera/no ISR city where thugs don't roam and rule the streets.

Sawyer have nerve to worry about the police while the gangbangers are running rampant in his ward. Why can't you Aldermen do a better job at monitoring your ward, paving alleys, putting brighter light in the alleys and on residential blocks. Sawyer is never available to his constituents. He's always sitting in some "prayer breakfast" or planning $500 a plate fundraisers for himself. He's hated the police ever since Wooten ran against him. He's turned a deaf ear to the Chatham community and has focused his attention on Englewood because his cousin is the head of the Greater Englewood R.A.G.E Organization. He makes sure his cousin gets all of the grants. That's why the Englewood portion of his ward has the Whole Foods, etc. He hasn't done sh-t in Chatham, still punishing them for the opponent who ran against him. Sawyer didn't do so well in Chatham and the only reason he did well in the Englewood portion of his ward is because of his cousin, who is also an influential leader of the Black Lives Matters organization. The Aldermen want a voice in the police contact, yet they fight tooth and nail to keep the citizen from having a voice at the City Council Meetings. Sawyer state your real issue. I've been knowing Sawyer since he was a kid and nothing has changed.

"The FOP contract has been preserving and protecting a culture of racism and violence in our Police Department for far too long," Sawyer said while standing with African-American federal, state, county and city officials. "Now is our chance to change that once and for all, and I would challenge the FOP to contact us and meet with us to discuss what's beneficial for the entirety of the city of Chicago, not just the rank-and-file members of the Police Department."

That contract is signed by the Mayor of Chicago after negotiation and approved by the knuckleheads in the City Council. The contract is a labor agreement; derived through negotiation or arbitration.

I'm in Florida full time and the Aetna plan actually works as good if not better than the plan we had with the City. First week in January I was admitted in the hospital for my heart. Stayed a week and not a bill or out of pocket cost. I ordered my prescriptions paid my $100 deductible for drugs only and my mail order was cheaper than what I paid under city plan by a few dollars. Not a lot of money but none the less lower. My biggest concern was seeing my Dr that is not in network but accepts Medicare. Had a follow up out of the hospital and 3 times since and not a single copay or out of pocket. Not even my a and b deductible that I used to pay under Medicare and city plan. Glad to hear it is going well back home. There are a lot of police and fire retirees around me here and the majority I talk to are happy. The ones that aren't too happy went on the city bcbs plan they offered. They say the bcbs plan they have now is not the plan we had before and it's more expensive than aetna and has a way different prescription plan.

Even tho the press and the Black caucus harp about clauses in they contract that impede discipline but can't cite any specific elements.

The reason tho low sustained discipline is not the contract.
1:By taking every complaints the IPRA wastes tremendous resources on dead ends.
2:Misconduct is not as rampant as the would like public to believe.
3: Officers have due process rights. And they use them

The issue is that Rahm is sinking. And he knows it. He is known as the Murder mayor. Streets are out of control. He hates the police and the feeling is mutual. He made them the whipping boys and the media plays along. He is trying to whip the public into a frenzy thinking that if certain unspecified contract clauses are removed all his social problems will disappear.

He needs to get the police and courts working again but doesn't know how to admit he was wrong.

The media has its orders from Rahm: attack the contract relentlessly.

I feel the same way. Residency has been challenged in many cities and states and the courts almost always side with the municipality. In addition, like many of you, I have non-police friends living in some of the northern suburbs with really great educational systems ... but, they're paying $15-18,000 per year in property taxes on homes under 3000 sq. feet.

Nitwits like you need not tell others that better things are not possible. The grass IS greener on the other side, so why don't YOU shut the fuck up. IDIOT.

AMEN! Indiana has a balanced budget, low taxes, solvent pensions and -most importantly- nationalist sentiment

If all four unions had ANY balls they would ban together and not give in to what would ultimately be the domino effect of collective bargaining, contractual Rights, and Civil Rights for cops of all ranks.

You can't even get 2 blue shirts to agree where to have lunch and you think Sgt's, Lt's and Capt.'s will join US against the city?

Please STFU about residency. It was a term of employment when you were hired.

If you read the current contract, there is another TERM of employment that acts as a loophole allowing you to live outside the city.

It's called RETIREMENT!

I'm taking full advantage of that out today.

After 27 years, no more alarm clock!

Please STFU about residency. It was a term of employment when you were hired. There are important things to worry about and residency isn't in top ten. Where are you going to move? Property taxes are much higher in the decent surrounding burbs. There is no greener grass, everywhere you live has compromises. I'm not for residency, just tired of hearing about it.

When I came on, free health care and a HS diploma or a ged was a "term of employment".
They change the rules when it's convenient to them!
So please, STFU!

Got to be more than "No one else has it". Or"I don't like it"

I am sure you can find a lawyer that will take your money and tell you that he will win because he is such a wonderful lawyer. But without some constitutional precedent, you are wasting money.

They do not have to worry about too many complaints from the Chicago Police Department. There are too many watchdog groups, most of the department is minority/ethnic, and CPD has been under the microscope for a good decade now. This is a waste of time and resources to barely tweek anything. They have trouble generating any real complaints besides a few bad apples making the news. Meanwhile, making it a personal "F U" by mentioning ghetto nonsense as part of our contract will increase the homincide rate from 800 to 950.

P.S.

Good luck propaganda lovers.

Body cameras are not here to stay. The former XO of 014 who became the Commander of 014 volunteered 014 to test them. FYI, he became the justice dept laison for CPD.

Inside baseball, many dope addicts may be alive if police didn't have to do a crazy ISR and wear a body camera in the process of a simple street stop.

It's a societal question. How many people do we want dead through gang violence, drug overdose, and other criminal behavior in a body camera/ISR city?

VS.

How many gray area police involved deaths would we tolerate in a no ISR/no body camera city?

I vote for a no body camera/no ISR city where thugs don't roam and rule the streets.

You couldn't be more wrong about the cameras. I would say only a fucking retard would think they are not here to stay, but your post made that obvious.

Residency should be used as a bargaining chip. We've seen other law-enforcement municipalities have filed lawsuits and won. Put residency on the table so we don't lose anything

Then don't move if you don't want to pay more in property taxes no one is saying YOU have to leave if residency is lifted but it should be an option. I would rather have a decent neighborhood and schools then forced to stay in Chicago.

I can you for a fact that the supervisors were ready to join the FOP but were rejected by the FOP President when all of this union business started. The city was very happy to not have this happen. I often wonder now if this split of ranks was part of some secret deal with the city?

I feel the same way. Residency has been challenged in many cities and states and the courts almost always side with the municipality. In addition, like many of you, I have non-police friends living in some of the northern suburbs with really great educational systems ... but, they're paying $15-18,000 per year in property taxes on homes under 3000 sq. feet. The grass isn't always greener out there.

Hey asshat , every city that has challenged residency in the courts has one you moron ......Milwaukee was the last man standing besides us and they just won their battle in the Supreme Court as awell. Grow a clue and quit slobbing on Rahmbina's Schlong. WE ARE THE ONLY DEPARTMENT IN THE NATION LEFT WITH SUCH A RESTRICTIVE RESIDENCY RULE. We'd win in the courts in a heartbeat. Justine we did in the tattoo policy.

Gee I don't know there you bumbling retard. ...............maybe use one of the prior 50 cases or 10 of the most recent that have gone through the courts and won , and follow their lead. That would seem logical

Not quite what you think or as easy as you stated. Not taking sides and have a chance to win, but comparing Milwaukee PD is like comparing apples and oranges
First the Supreme Court that decided this case was by a 5-2 decision and this might surprise you but the Wisconsin Supreme Court has 5 republicans and 2 democrats
Second it was the Wisconsin Supreme Court that decided this case so it sets no standard or precedent for the Illinois Supreme Court which would hear our case. I don't think I have to tell you the make up of the Illinois Supreme Court, but I can assure the majority is not republican
Third there are other cities in the US that have residency
Finally I love you statement that every city that challenged residency has one, moron.tou call guys morons and you right that they have ONE

Yes you felt like many others did. The FOP was not going to do anything for supervisors and pretty much told them " take it or leave it". Nut, I wonder if the city secretly made a deal and wanted this to happen? Were they afraid of a united department?

You're both right in a way. Not going anywhere short term, but when the oppressed minorities and more importantly, those that live off their chaos, (lawyers, politicians and media) find that the cameras don't work as they expect but rather expose the kafka-esque world cops are forced to inhabit, they'll become to expensive to maintain. Especially when the rats lies and evil are exposed and start limiting the corrupt, foul lawyer's awards.

By getting hard information on corruption from whatever sources that are out there including former union officials. Then getting indictments and convictions.

I'd check that out about the gold braid. CFD slipped the gold braid in a few years ago. I thought the same until I talked to a retired CFD captain who they have the gold braid. Look at better government association and see some of their pensions. Well over what at lt could get
