Re-instated

  • Four Chicago Police officers who face firing in connection with the fatal shooting of Laquan McDonald will be back on the city payroll, at least until the conclusion of officer Jason Van Dyke’s murder trial.

    The Chicago Police Board, which hands out discipline in cases of alleged officer misconduct, voted on Monday to put a stay on the officers’ hearings, saying that evidence used against the officers in their police board hearings would jeopardize the admissibility of evidence in Van Dyke’s trial.
First up, how about back pay?

Second, when will Ed strip himself since he approved this shooting as "justified"?

What about Van Dyke? Person with a knife call. refused to drop. London Bridge???? Van Dyke saved lives of his fellow officers and citizens. Scary to think what would have happening if Mcdonald was allowed to continue.

If those officers stray ANYWHERE from their reports, their GONE.

This shows the officers have a good case and the city is on BS. Rahm should be fired, he is the only one who tried to cover it up.

Soooo not looking forward to the overtime when JVD is acquitted.

Will TD9.5 sit on the verdict to buy time like he did with the video???

I'm happy they are getting back to work and gives them some time to make some moves and breath easier but I think we all know how this is eventually going to end... they may not have jobs in the future. As for right now I'm very happy for them, I hope that they start preparing and making sure things are lined up for the future. Hope I'm wrong, good luck.

Can this be a "deal" to encourage revision to the original reports? as in "now you remember what happened exacty"?
Dont forget, no promises are required to be fullfilled at the end by anyone or govmnt entity.

Don't count on being back just yet. I'm sure the "community" will be outraged
I can see a reversal

Also, it looks like Rahm wants to keep the testimony of these officers secret and not brought into the JVD trial

Remember, every day is closer to the mayoral election. Rahm doesn't want this trial going on or ending anywhere near election day. Rahm has just about rehabilitated his image with new schools, programs, streetlights etc. When was the last time you heard anyone mention that he hid the video other than this blog?

immediate defamation law suit. They were stripped because of certain members of the community wanted them to. Bull shit political decision making just to appease these assholes. Remember the motto was resign Rahm, so the mayor had to deflect the negative rhetoric against him and who better to do it to, the police. Worked great for him but totally falsely defamed and demeaned those officers and their families. Collect and move the fuck out.

Now put yourself in the boots of these Officers; would you ever do a single thing beyond what is required? What is their Morale like? Meanwhile, every Exempt who saw the video before Rahm Suppressed it, did not lose a minute of salary. Some were even promoted, and others retired to six figure public jobs, such as Chief of the NEIU police. Putting these officers back on the payroll was the Absolute Right Thing to do. Unfortunately, it was too little too late. The Lesson and Message was heard Loud and Clear. Every Officer is on his/her own; the Department and Rahm will not support you. Van Dyke shot an out of control person, high on drugs with a knife, who refused orders to drop the weapon. If he is found guilty, it will be because it is easier to deal with pissed off White people, than to deal with Black rioters, led by outsiders as in Ferguson. In such an environment, how can anyone expect the police to risk their lives, careers and their families futures. Chicago Values= Politics & Race. Baby "G"

Oh for crying out loud, this is the equivalent of throwing a dog a bone!!! When will Ed grow some balls, admit this was wrong and apologize (in public)? I won't hold my breath. But even if he did, nothing will ever make up for the hardship these officers have gone through over the past 10 months including the smear of their character by the media. To all of you out there (especially the newbies), don't even dare think for one second this couldn't happen to you! This is a world of BIG fish eats little fish, and the only way to survive is to be a shark. God bless you all.

Hey FOP File the complaints now on the Corp Counsel, and all the other lawyers who violated either a collective bargaining agreement or a state law (police officer bill of rights) file the ATTORNEY REGISTRATION DICIPLINARY COMPLAINT already... Hey Martin Prieb you talked all this shit about what you do, now start putting some ass behind all that talk, Vice Pres. Bartlett that goes for you too....

You ever wonder why all the lawyers try talking everyone out if filing these complaints? Go ask your lawyer buddies.

How could any honest Supt have allowed them to be suspended in the first place? Oh wait! I forget. It was Special Ed! Ed can't even spell honesty. Maybe he can ask his Lie tenant girl friend. She does rather well on tests.

They will just be fired later. Not for cause, but to appease the "community", who gets whatever they ask for.

Remember, Johnson still supports the suspension of the officers. The police board reluctantly agreed to let them return to duty to avoid any problems with their case. This case is controlled by politics not the law. I bet Rahm will do something before the verdict is read if there is a chance of not-guilty. In the meantime, help design a new squad car!

Ed and the department spokesperson make sure they say this isn't what they want to do but their hands are tied!
How about this is undoing a wrong that never should've happened.
The only reason it happened that way in the first place is because Rahm and FatHeadEd are incessant in their pandering to "the community"

Fuck you Ed, Fuck you Rahm, Fuck you Gugliemi.... it's called due process.

The "investigation" that lead to this suspension was a FN travesty. An IG who never investigated anything substantial sifts through the complexity of a police shooting and pronounces sentence.

If your statement does not word-for-word match the video frame-for-frame, he thinks you are lying.

This is Rahm destroying careers. Wonder if he realizes that he is also destroying his career?

Hurray praise be to God, now hopefully after JVD is found properly not guilty and gets millions in lawsuits against all of the evil people that perpetuated this upon him and his family and really against police officers on the entire dept! Why are police fetal somewhat? look no further than this travesty, everyone knows knives are weapons and can kill, and if that punk high on pcp that criminal walked away with that weapon and killed and maimed others Jason would of been blamed for not doing his job! We are not paid to go home with more holes in us than we started our tours with, we are paid to "serve and protect" and in this case the job was handled properly.

Police work is not watching some bullshit police TV program, it is dirty,mean and mentally hard trying to get the killers and thugs off the streets who maim and murder, but that is not rahm emaunels and the dishonest 24/7 media narrative! the narrative is "we hate the police" scapegoat narrative! God bless the police and may God help all the officers involved to be found not guilty and may God in anyway possible find a way to bring the proper criminals the elected in this city state county that allow the predators to prey on honest taxpaying citizens to justice.

Yeah, well, a sergeant who reviews a report for spelling, completeness and coherency CAN'T 'stray from his report', yet one is fighting for his career, anyway. He's one of the four in question.

When I review your report, I have NO idea if what you reported is true and that isn't my function when I review your report. I am not the judge who will hear the case; it's his/her function to determine the veracity of your paper.

Just goes to show you how fucked up and politically motivated this dept is!! According to the order the paper car in an officer involved shooting does not write the narrative portion of the case ( that's up to the D unit in their supplemental) they only take down factual data. So how the hell did these guys onscene supposedly rule 14 according to what Sup was saying and publicly announced to media?? Unless these coppers onscene went out of their way to ad witness testimony in a more than questionable use of force incident, and I don't see anyone being that recklessly stupid, they were fired for simply doing their job. I'm sure when these law suits for wrongful termination started tumbling in the upper echelon felt their nuts getting squeezed. This was bullshit from the beginning. But it shows you at what lenghts these people will go to appease a community and its activists in the face of evidence, hard facts and the law. Instead of standing up for justice and law and leading they pander withdraw and whimper like demagogue cowards looking for the path of least confrontation. Just look at the tac officer from 010 who was involved in the head kick who just got reinstated from call back as example.

This merit process in addition to special " study groups" has produced some of the worst leaders who are systematically running this dept into the ground.

Will the 4 be sent to 311 or turned over to the district as desk supplements?
Will the community decide?
Will any Spontaneous Retirements be re-instated too?

As for Special Ed, he's a slow learner.
He cannot comprehend and was given a social promotion.

Those of you who think JVD is walking away from this are dreamers. No jury is going to acquit him, it's already in the cards. Just like Rahm held back the video, he's trying to make sure the verdict comes around election time so he can point to the " transparency " of the system. These four will then be unceremoniously dumped.
