Another Quota?

This time in 016:
  • This was very recently sent out in an email from 016th dist 2nd watch Lt kohnen. He must not read this blog.
    Gentlemen,

    In preparation for the upcoming Compstat meeting, the undersigned has recently completed an individual activity review for our 2nd watch personnel.

    The watch, as a whole, is out-performing last year's output wonderfully, up some 30%.

    However, we still have some people who are not contributing their fair share, meaning they are not meeting the agreed upon "one good stop with documentation per day worked." This group of officers include:

    [Names removed]

    If any/all of these listed officers fall under your direct supervision, please assist them in correctly documenting the work that they do, regularly, so that they, too, are properly recognized as "contributing members of the watch."

    Additionally, the following group has experienced a cumulative reduction in individual activity when comparing this year to last, and may need extra supervision in order to put them back on track:

    [Names removed]

    Thanks for your continued efforts!
First up, who "agreed upon" this quota? The FOP? The officers in 016? The ACLU? Rahm?

We're sure that the ACLU, [monitoring this blog], will be in a right state after reading this. There will also, no doubt, be a number of readers screeching about "It's 016 - find some work to do! Protect the neighborhood!" That isn't the point of this post. This is about management improperly and illegally directing Officers down a path that will result in Officers losing their homes, livelihood and careers. We don't care if it's ten stops a night in 025 or one stop a day in 016 - it's illegal, and putting it down on paper makes it easier to jackpot coppers.

The fact that this idiot calls it "output" and attaches a "30%" increase to the "agreed upon" totals only invites another ACLU lawsuit to FOIA any and all paperwork related to a quota system that 35th Street denies exists, but is constantly referred to by moronic bosses. And the paragraph about "assist them" and "recogniz[ing]" the Officers as "contributing members" just made this a slam-dunk for any Officer who wants to move forward with an EEOC beef. You're singling out Officers based on ...a QUOTA! And you listed their names in a discover-able e-mail? Way to cost the City money there Lieutenant! Is this another "merit" pick? Because this is as dumb as Escamilla's recent fuck-up.

[Comments in which the only point is "do work or quit" will be deleted as per policy. Same with rip jobs on 016 "lazy cops" and crap like that. The same rules apply to all cops all the time - the enemy is management violating the law that would cost any normal cop his/her job if they did it.]

many years ago I thought I lost a 12 round magazine and stopped into 017 to get a permit to purchase since my unit didnt have them

Kohnen was the W/C that night and REFUSED to sign the authorization for me EVEN though I was in traveling uniform, with an ID card and star on my shirt.

I STILL cant make up my mind whether he didnt know about that form or he was just being a jag off.
But this numbnuts was a Lieutenant of Police

I found the magazine in a magazine pouch with a broken belt loop in my car.


But what a goof

That LT. on days was an idiot, even before this email. I was in 016 on afternoons, and I thoroughly enjoyed it there. The bosses were good, the watch was good, and the people were good. Anyone who wants to slam 016 should go there before they open their mouths. They are woefully short, and the district is enormous. The criminal element is very abundant and it's busier than you think.

Once and for all...

The "Corporate Model" is an ill fit for
Policing/Public Safety.

Policemen don't make "widgets" any more
than the death loving shit-heads who
have CPD management spinning in circles
and flagellating themselves and each other
for want of a solution to the death loving
shit-heads lighting this city on fire.

And CPD management is pissed because
Escamerit's stupid fuck-up of putting
a demand for quota based activity in
writing has stripped them of ANY
plausible deniability in regard to
putting the arm on Policemen for
quota based activity so as not to
get fucked with/punished/brow-beaten/
harassed/cooked in the disciplinary jackpot
for not obtaining the never before defined
amount of activity needed to keep the
bosshole of the day from bothering you.

ACLU says:
"Cat's out the motherfucking bag you fools."

>Crams hefty sheaf of words-all-over
papers with the famous blue litigation
cover up the merit boss blow hole<

This shit won't stop until these can't
buy a clue merit hump bosses are forced
to give up their houses, cars, savings,
legitimate/illegitimate kids college
funds, money to keep the side poke quiet
as part and parcel of punitive damages.

We think MOST Policemen have clearly
gotten the memo.

Quota based activity is a fucking no-no.

Dry, flavorless, unexciting, response
after the fact Policing is what they want?

Well then damn it, give it to 'em.

Not a boss posting but, Seems to me many folks are getting the "Quota" law in Illinois wrong. It specifically speaks about citations. You can be told to do stops. So pull over grandma with a license plate light out and there is your "stop". There are ways around the orders. A little work a day keeps the boss away.

A municipality may not, for purposes of evaluating a police
officer's job performance, compare the number of citations
issued by the police officer to the number of citations issued
by any other police officer who has similar job duties.

Nothing in this Section shall prohibit a municipality from evaluating a
police officer based on the police officer's points of contact.


For the purposes of this Section, "points of contact" means any
quantifiable contact made in the furtherance of the police
officer's duties, including, but not limited to, the number of
traffic stops completed, arrests, written warnings, and crime
prevention measures
. Points of contact shall not include either
the issuance of citations or the number of citations issued by
a police officer.

There has got to be a virus running through the ranks of Department bosses. I call it the "Stupid Virus". Takes many forms but usually infects bosses at the district and unit level. Symptoms include shouting at the troops, writing orders that are contrary to the law and Department Policy, attending roll calls and using inflammatory language, threatening punishment for minor transgressions hitherto overlooked as not worth the time to enforce, attempting to enlist the aid of outside unit personnel to hammer cops, threatening to withhold officers' request for time off, while never displaying backbone.

Crime is random, and in some districts, largely due
to demographics, more random (or frequent) than in
other districts. You're going to get clumps and zeros.
You can't hope that the crime was more evenly
distributed or that the number of stops was more or
less evenly divided by the officers on duty.
It is unreasonable to take statistical distribution laws
(no pun intended), and make them conform to a quota
system. The laws of probability and statistics are not
going to change and morph themselves into an unnatural
(and illegal) quota system. Academics fall down on the side
of the FOP.
By mandating quotas, the management proves itself ignorant
of both mathmatecial and legal concepts.

Man, that has got to be one of the lamest 'Team Awesome!' emails from management I have ever read. At least Escamilla aka Quota Man, tried to make himself look like a half-assed military leader with his 'gang arteries,' nonsense or whatever his dinosaur brain told him sounded intelligent to write down. I like how the Lt sounded like a head teacher for a remedial school that wanted the rest of the staff to monitor more closely the kids that were eating glue and not doing their homework.

I guess this is good news? I mean, I guess the ACLU is irrelevant now and the city doesn't care what they think anymore? Sounds good to me. One of those coppers should stop someone and tell them that they were pulled over because they looked weird and besides, I need my stop for the day otherwise my supervisor might try to molest me in his/her office.

Escamerit may go down as some sorta folk hero for the CPD. Is this the 'Escamerit effect?' Because he doesn't seem to be suffering any consequences for his illegal quota, and it appears now that other supervisors feel emboldened and that they can come up with whatever crazy demands that they want.

RIP ACLU. It appears your organization isn't nearly as powerful as it once was.

These meritorious promoted hacks were never the police. They get high enough on the ladder then they are put in a position to "lead' the real police and they realize they are in way over their heads. So they start to do stupid things like those mentioned, bring attention to themselves from those higher on the ladder. Those higher realize that these fellow morons need to be removed and poof the idiots are all reunited at headquarters. I believe these guy's are doing this on purpose, this department rewards incompetence. They don't want to be running a district or a watch so they do these things hoping they will get reassigned and hid somewhere sharpening pencils. Still get a take home car, come in around 10:00 leave at 1:30 or 2:00 they got it made.

This is another example supporting the belief and apparently in 016 the Fact, that the Chicago Police Department and its Officers no longer have credibility! With stops being documented by articulation on paper and in video; are YOU now expected to commit Perjury, a felony, so this "Ignorant" Lieutenant can produce a false narrative for COMPSTAT? And I do not use the word "Ignorant" lightly, because it appears this Lieutenant is living in some Clout induced coma. Now any, and I mean any traffic citation in 016, can be challenged with good reason. "Your Honor, my client was cited to conform with a District quota on issuance of traffic citations." If you play ball and commit the felony/perjury, for the "Team", will you get a Merit Bump? With this level of Ignorance in White Shirts; it is clear that every Man/Woman, and in 019, any combination thereof, is on their own! How can anyone trust or follow this kind of leadership? You are being criticized, by police Supervisors, for not abusing your authority as police officers? Will they give you a time due slip for your own indictment? Now more than ever, Do Nothing More than answer your calls. Give the Democrats the Police Department that they have wanted for decades. And if bosses need instruction on how to motivate the troop, call me and I'll teach them how to address these issues. "I have noticed some really bad driving in the District, yet I have not seen many citations this Period. Please be more observant of this problem. Remember, we are in our vehicles more than the average person, so that bad driving might put us as the victims of a crash. Be Careful and Stay Safe." Treat Officers with Respect, and they will do what needs to be done. Treat them like idiots, and they will do as little as possible. Remember, the pension is the same for the Tac officer, as it is for the Do Nothing officer. Baby "G"

Please tell me where in the orders it specifies a certain number of stops that negate supervision while lacking stops requires more specific supervision? Where is the content validity of his management policy and how does He, Beldar, make agreements with officers regarding policing policy and procedures? Do these agreements violate the contract with FOP and PBPA? There are more questions than answers here. Does this constitute an official department document? Is this now official policy and does it contradict official department policy? What recourse do these officers have after being identified as being lacking in their performance duties based on Beldars traffic stop policy?

Look no further than Juan Rios at gangs north. This guy is the definition of pussy merit hack bosses. He's trying to dump half of the unit and bring in his three year guys to do his bidding. If you aren't box 1 on the arrest he complains, if you don't do search warrants he complains. I've never really heard any boss complain about being box 1 and/or 2 but this assface does. Even if the team has good numbers he will single out those who aren't in Box 1. And everyone has to be an affiant on a search warrant, or else get out. He wants more of his LAPA sgt's and three year wonders who will do whatever he tells them to in order to get that promotion he so eagerly desires.

Not a boss posting but, Seems to me many folks are getting the "Quota" law in Illinois wrong. It specifically speaks about citations. You can be told to do stops. So pull over grandma with a license plate light out and there is your "stop". There are ways around the orders. A little work a day keeps the boss away.

A municipality may not, for purposes of evaluating a police
officer's job performance, compare the number of citations
issued by the police officer to the number of citations issued
by any other police officer who has similar job duties.

Nothing in this Section shall prohibit a municipality from evaluating a
police officer based on the police officer's points of contact.

For the purposes of this Section, "points of contact" means any
quantifiable contact made in the furtherance of the police
officer's duties, including, but not limited to, the number of
traffic stops completed, arrests, written warnings, and crime
prevention measures. Points of contact shall not include either
the issuance of citations or the number of citations issued by
a police officer.

So now what?

All these willfully ignorant, jumped-up bosses
are now pissed because the troops are heeding
the #blm/aclu memo and are actively avoiding
the verboten quota based Police activity that
these jumped-up bosses desperately need in
order to look good at the merry festival
of Law Enforcement Fuckery known as Compstat?

Bosses go to HQ to look good at The Policeman's
professional and personal detriment.

Bosses want that promotion.
Policemen get ruined for heeding bad
commands under duress for activity.

The aclu is cataloging this activity and
sending notice to the DOJ on which
OFFICERS are generating "activity"
that is quota based.

This shit is purposely designed
to imperil Policemen only.

Until gold star bosses start getting outed
AND hurt over this dumb shit. It won't stop.

"You fucking Coppers won't make us look good
at Compstat? We're gonna start fucking your
lives up..."

Compstat has been wholly disproven and discredited
as nothing more than the quota driven NYPD law
enforcement quackery it is.

The intellectually disinterested CPD command and
policy making echelon have been exposed for the
incompetents they are.

Their only solution to everything wrong with this
job is to cast the Blue Shirts as the cause and
viewing more silly shit from THEM as the cure.

Fun House mirrors hanging in their houses...

Has anyone contemplated the possibility here that the intent of this garbage is beyond just making coppers look bad? That it is more nefarious than that and indeed even more juvenile than that? What if this is just, and really only, to set up the big payouts themselves. I mean everything else is set up and based on the kickbacks and milking and money laundering, right? Why not even this? What if this crap is just the biggest lump sum tax exempt money laundering of taxpayers dollars that any municipality has ever witnessed? Like say a brother from another mother in the ghetto lottery field of dreams?

Maybe its not that they don't know this sets up discoverable material, but instead it is that do. At this point, I don't guess there is even any maybe about it.

Dear Mr. "Not a Boss",
They can evaluate me on my points of contact for every business check I do. Walk into DD, bam! Contact with a business employee. Sorry I'm not running their name since it's not a Terry stop, so you can review the video footage for your documentation. For those with body cams, turn them on and you're documented. Walk into a park district building and sign the clipboard - bam! Contact! Again, you want your fucking documentation, go get the clipboard (or the video). I dare you to slander my name in a letter, you stroke. Watch how fast you get sued for ANY perceived discrimination (deny me time when you've given time to someone else? I fucking dare you). By the way, I don't have to win a lawsuit, just a settlement. And Chicago folds like a lawn chair to get out from under the most petty litigation. It won't cost me a dime once I show my attorney (you will be paying for her) your quota memo acquired via FOIA and my documented contacts.

No one is going to say that contact with the business community isn't in furtherance of my police duties.

Sincerely,

"Not a Cop, but...." (I know, it's a laugher isn't it?)

Also, that he is pressuring SGTs to ride POs asses.

If the supervisors in 016 want you to jump on board with this, tell them you're not doing it until they show you an opinion from the City of Chicago Law Dept.

You are a police officer sworn to uphold the law. This policy clearly seems to violate the law. The Law Dept would probably be called upon to defend you, at least in some capacity. So why not be pro-active instead of re-active. I'd go a step further and contact the Law Dept yourself, rather than wait for your supervisor to do this. And in the mean time, tell your supervisor you ain't doing jack mo-fo shit until the Law Dept issues it's opinion.

Cuz we all know that Rahm is too busy stepping over dead black people in order to get votes and a paycheck to do anything about this.

No, asswipe. Use the ACLU to your advantage, and the key word is "use". The Dept. made a deal with the devil in order to fuck the lowly blue shirt over. Then, supervisory members of that same Dept. (many of which are clueless, unqualified, merit hacks) want you to jeopardize your career, assets, and possibly, freedom, by violating policy, and in some cases, city ordinance and state law, so the bullshit compstat numbers look better. A lot of this Dept.'s problems come from these bosses and their shitty way of "leading". They set up the rules. They now want you to cheat and make them look good. If calling them out means letting the liberal fucktards at the ACLU know, then use it. It shows where the problems originate.

What a lot of people don't understand is that police work can't be tracked in a finite way. As if you worked in sales your boss can track your monthly sales, if your at a factory your supervisor can keep a record of how many units you make per shift etc etc. police work is different as many of us know. Our job is to serve and protect, so say you spend your day on your beat driving up and down the streets checking the alleys where burglaries are occurring. maybe you spend time in a commercial area where armed robberies are occurring. You can stop in wa couple stores, talk to the clerks and patrons or you hang out in your car along that same commercial stretch. What if there are narcotics sales from a house and you want to park in front for a few minutes to slow their sales or pickpockets by a CTA station on your beat and you walk around talk to a few patrons for 10 minutes two or three times a tour.

My point is the detersnt factor of a police officer in or out of their squad car cannot be measured in any sort of unit. If you did the above listed things along with handling your jobs maybe dropping paper, responding to some in progress jobs, backing people up maybe come across an arrest from one of those in progress jobs. I think that if you did that right there any tax payer would be satisfied with you. The problem is that bosses need to show some sort of activity as a way to prove how smart they are and that they did 'X' in response to what we situation be it homicides agg batts armed robberies. So these bosses many of whom only care about moving up in furtherance of their own careers have ways to FORCE the blue shirts to sue there bidding.

This is the point the media should pay attention. So say LT D bag wants a certain number of tickets or TSS cards or ISRs in a certain area during a certain time of a mission, maybe it's cold maybe it's raining maybe you stopped to help and old lady change a flat tire and you don't get those numbers they are looking for. Maybe the LT is in pissed now maybe you don't get the usual start time that you have. Maybe when you put in a day off it gets denied, maybe you get split up from your partner. All these things can cause unwanted or avoidable stress. In response you get most police to go along with the program get a couple blue cards or ISRs or contact card me back in the day to get the bosses off their back. This way they can keep their partner and start time and. It worry about he added stress of child care issues angry spouses etc that comes with denied time due and changing start times.

My final point is to explain the why. Why do these 'bosses' ask for these numbers. As I mentioned it's in furtherance of their careers but the goal is that Merit promotion and ultimately that Gold Star that comes with being a commander or higher. With that comes the Gold Braid pension and many years of draining the pension fund quicker than it should. Sure while most bosses want the many there are some who like the power yes that is true. And they will flex this power to lowly blue shirts in an attempt to make them feel small. In closing I say end the Gold Braid pension make LT the last pensionable rank and maybe you will finally get some people who want to actually lead the officers and come up with real solutions to fight crime instead of pleasing the masters and 35th street with bukkshit numbers in an attempt to gain more money and power.

Sorry for the long post.

Not a boss posting but, Seems to me many folks are getting the "Quota" law in Illinois wrong. It specifically speaks about citations. You can be told to do stops. So pull over grandma with a license plate light out and there is your "stop". There are ways around the orders. A little work a day keeps the boss away.

A municipality may not, for purposes of evaluating a police
officer's job performance, compare the number of citations
issued by the police officer to the number of citations issued
by any other police officer who has similar job duties.

Nothing in this Section shall prohibit a municipality from evaluating a
police officer based on the police officer's points of contact.

For the purposes of this Section, "points of contact" means any
quantifiable contact made in the furtherance of the police
officer's duties, including, but not limited to, the number of
traffic stops completed, arrests, written warnings, and crime
prevention measures. Points of contact shall not include either
the issuance of citations or the number of citations issued by

"And Nothing, but the truth" is exactly what you posted here SCC. I'm from 018 and I can't believe that it's happening all over again. If you recall about 5 or 6 years ago a captain, a lieutenant, at least five sergeants and yours truly georgass with his side kick Kenny doll angerrone were the listed defendants in a federal civil rights violation lawsuit file by two patrolman on the 2nd watch. It started the same way. The white shirts wanted numbers at any cost, but these two officers would not play their game to risk everything including, ironically, a civil rights lawsuit from a citizen. What came out in court was that the white shirts decided that if the officers on 2nd watch that were there on a bid would not give them the "quotas", then they would be subject to punishment. To be exact, "The Punishment Car". Which was a beat car that had to spend the whole tour of duty sitting in front of 365 W. Oak St(the lone project bldg.).
The punishment car could not leave for anything, not even to fuel up. White shirts would come by often, if not watch them from a distance w/binoculars for the purpose of sparring them until they would leave the district. Everyone fell in line, but these two brave Ofcs and they were ostracized by all the kiss asses & kids on the watch. Then the white shirts took away the car and the Ofcs were on the punishment foot post, you guessed it, at 365 W. Oak St. The Lodge wouldn't help, but a brave Law Office did. An all "white" Federal Jury held all the white shirts, CPD & the City of Chicago liable on all charges and ordered a substantial payment to the plaintiff/victim who is a "white" Patrolman. It is said that one of the defendants by the name of "Kenny" texted his subordinates in white shirts the following: We lost, but keep your heads up; nothing is going to change. Unfucken believable SCC !

For those of you wondering "retirement" and freedom from these dingbats is everything you thought it would be. Just not having to ever be around these ding a lings is like Fat Buddha giving you a 2nd life.

Do they still keep detailing 016 tac and gang personnel to the ghetto? If so, it makes sense now that they are trying to squeeze the blue shirts into working. Fuck the bosses and their counseling. Quit detailing officers to the shitholes.

These meritorious promoted hacks were never the police. They get high enough on the ladder then they are put in a position to "lead' the real police and they realize they are in way over their heads. So they start to do stupid things like those mentioned, bring attention to themselves from those higher on the ladder. Those higher realize that these fellow morons need to be removed and poof the idiots are all reunited at headquarters. I believe these guy's are doing this on purpose, this department rewards incompetence. They don't want to be running a district or a watch so they do these things hoping they will get reassigned and hid somewhere sharpening pencils. Still get a take home car, come in around 10:00 leave at 1:30 or 2:00 they got it made.

I couldn't agree with this more !!! This department rewards Incompetance !!! How many bosses that I can think about that are complete morons and have no common sense, leadership skills, and have issues with power and they fuck up themselves up all the time and all they do is get shifted around or promoted or sent to headquarters !! Look at former captain TL from 019 3rd watch, having missions and missions and missions for years on the watch and then he leaves and same crime exists or less. His missions were a failure in reducing crime just as he was a failure .This man should have been demoted after wasting thousands of hours on his little sheets given out at roll call for his silly childish missions treating 20+ year veteran officers like they were 19 year old Loyola students of his and dozens and dozens of officers flee 019 because of his nonsense and for him exposing officers personal medical conditions to chastise them for being on the medical at roll calls and this department has the audacity to promote him and shift him around the department ! This man should never been more than a police aide and here he stands as a gold star. This is one example upon many we all can relate to and this is why the department will never get one more ounce of self initiated activity out of me cause we all just used as pawns for these bossss trying to make a name for themselves to climb ladder making double in salaries of ours and have zero compassion for the poor guy or gal pushing a beat car day in and day out , we have to beg to get out 10 minutes early and these (most but not all) white shirts cheat and steal company time with thousands of CU time on the books, sit in their air conditioned offices, barking orders and in many cases , Quotas , so they can look pretty at their yet another promotion graduation and we are left behind as shit on responding to another 19paul disturbance call LOOK OUT FOR YOURSELVES CAUSE MOST LIEUTENANTS AND ABOVE ARE NOT LOOKING OUT FOR THE LITTLE GUY AT THE BOTTOM, ONLY HOW THEY ARE TRYING TO COLLECT THEIR FUTURE RIDICULOUS AMOUNT OF A PENSION CHECK WHILE BANGING ON THEIR CHEST AS IF THEY ARE SPECIAL AND POWERFUL. SORRY WE REALLY KNOW YOU HAVE OBSESSION WITH POWER DOMINANCE I FEEL SORRY FOR YOU SAD PERSONALITY WHITE SHIRTS

I'm really surprised to see that Lt.K. would do that. I've known him for years, going back to when he was in patrol in 018 and worked with me. He ALWAYS was a good working cop and team player. Even when he was promoted, he didn't forget where he came from and backed the troops. There has to be more to this story. I just hope he didn't go to the dark side....

Hey LT Kohnen Get off the computer we know its you. Stop treating adults who have more than 25 years on the job who work on the watch like kids. I think you are a little bully and if you tried treating a man like that in the private sector. They would beat your little ass til you said mommy. I'm done and enjoying retirement but if I ever run into you and you're retired I'm going to tell you to go fuck yourself and PLEASE tell me to take it outside. I'll show you what respect feels like....

Hey don't get it twisted, LT. English on midnights in 016 isn't innocent to this bullshit either. That little weasel will make it a point to mention to PO's that their numbers are down and he'd like to see em improve. If you want time he'll make it a point to look at activity and maybe you'll get it. Hey Boss why don't you spend that uniform allowance and buy some shirts that fit. Smedium shirts don't look good on you, have some pride in your appearance and btw You don't scare anyone with your wanabe tough guy walk. Maybe the young guys and girls buy it but we all know you're a phony. I cant wait til you leave the watch and you can make other people hate their job... I might not have 20 years but I risk it just like everyone else.

I understand the no quota thing. But at a certain point should people be expected to do something. I mean we get paid a decent amount of money. Is a blue card a day or something similar too much to ask? I know "I'm just required to answer my jobs". I work in the hood and we have days were I might get only one or two jobs a day. Just a beat copper here.

Thank GOD I retired 3 years ago. Holy Shit what the fuck is going on? Anyway, my girlfriend suggested that I sit in at a "Shot Spotter" sales pitch at a local church so I went just for the hell of it. HOLY SHIT again. Some guy who claims to have been the police chief of two towns with forty years of service total tried his best to scare the shit out the 25 or so citizens that showed up. Shot Spotter wants to sell the city on a technology that will "hear" gun shots and notify street cops where they came from for a faster response. So .. the shots have been fired.. the victim are down or running their asses off and this thing hanging from a telephone pole every two or three blocks are going to do WHAT? Will it tell the officers which way the shooter ran or where the victim is? I never heard so much bullshit in my 25 years of service Remember the LOJACK joke? If you got stuck with the car with the Lojack gismo and it went off you'd fuck around for an hour following the damn signal around when it should be an insurance company issue. Now we're expected to go flying to a location that is being sent to units via internet from somewhere in California, yes California. From what I hear each "BOX" will cost the taxpayers, us, $65,000 per year , per unit . Fuck that. A phone call to 911 saying " somebody is shooting at so-n-so street , send the police has been good enough for 60 years or more. I hear the things are already in use in select districts. Whoever got payed off needs to be arrested. Would it have helped the two cops that got shot up last week in the "Back of the Yards" ? NO.... Anyway I was basically asked to leave the meeting because I was being disruptive.

From the comments:

Why don't we talk about lieutenant Hasan in 004. Guy has been asking for ISR's, stops and vehicle impounded for the past 8 months. If he doesn't get them he threatens to take people off their cars. Commander Sanchez knows about the Lieutenant's requests but pretends he has no idea about it. Place is a joke.

5/10/2017 12:57:00 AM

Sanchez is a triple merit himself. He thinks he's a true leader, and yet he can't even get his office staff to come to work on time. And Hasan is nothing compared to Bulnes (also merit). She comes late, leaves early, and her biggest worry is that her makeup is perfectly applied. She's the "Weezy" of 004.

Couple of things about 004. 10th ward clout still a big deal. Half the bosses live in four. A double handful of the bosses are multiple merit some are goofs. I have had merit bosses that were princes. So what! 004 gives these heavy bosses a great resume. It has the big three races. Different social classes. Heavy industry and commerce. And the revruns. Bulnes and Hasan are going up to higher rank or they wouldn't be there. The problem is that the police there. The blue shirts care more about their car and start time than sticking it to the boss. Bulnes hasn't pressured anyone for anything yet. She puts up 06 cars. Hasan "pressures" you and tells you he'll break up cars and so you can work with your partner you do what he says. That is called "quid pro quo". Stop giving a fuck about your partner because your not getting into gritty police work. Make friends with the watch. You'll have a good time every night. 004th district has more and better hiding spots than any other district. Be vocal and funny at roll call when the lt talks shit make an ass of him and he/she will stop. When they bounce you. Who cares? It's his car. When the secretary tells you you're bounced be positive. They have sucked dick to get what they want all their life, bosses cannot understand and are frustrated by someone who won't suck dick to be comfortable. Show the new guys there is nothing to be scared of and they won't listen either. Be a leader. You bunch of pussies.

All of my love for 004,
L. Thompson

5/11/2017 01:13:00 AM - Such a tactic only works when COPS bow together.
When cops instead STAND together, those kinds of veiled THREATS don't work. There used to be this thing called a UNION where once could STAND together....but seeing as the (D) owns them, the only togetherness we see out here in Citizenland is BOWING together. Hmmmm, you wouldn't be trying to plant the seed of doubt would you, posing as a concern troll, you know, subtly "reminding" individuals that they are alone and will be targeted if they dare make any waves.....would ya?

Shot Spotter tech has to be sold, and taxpayer bought, with a quickness because that scams lifespan is so short. Cameras for automated tickets was pitched the same, and it fell flat also, and for the same reasons. SCAM. The UK has cameras everywhere, but crime goes on the same as it did before them. They just have better access to getting dirt on their targets of choice now - political opponents mostly. Don't get me wrong, technology, cameras and mics too, have their place. Everywhere and as part of cons are the CORRECT use or place. Yes, telling the truth about such things IS "disruptive".....to the money laundering machine it is very disruptive.

You should try not to sound like a dumbass when attempting to be a smartass. The violation is the reason for the stop. It's that simple. Quotas and threats are bad, but your response is just dumb.
