A "Big Picture" Take

Have you ever felt that something is going on and you just couldn't put your finger on it? Some sixth sense making the hairs on the back of your neck prickle? Just thinking if you had one more piece, you might be able to see a bigger picture?
  • We've noted over the past weeks of a number of previously justified shootings being re-opened.
  • We've also heard rumors of some people being sent to Alternate Response (Callback) for some nonsense with the ISR's (still unconfirmed).
  • There's an open CR on an officer who had an allegedly offensive bumper sticker on his car.
So we did what many coppers do - we went out for a beer to catch up with some old friends. And then we heard another rumor....and the nagging thoughts suddenly seemed a lot clearer.
  • A bunch of scandals are being revisited. Large scandals.....scandals that never go away. Scandals quoted by types with axes to grind. Scandals where, even though the statute of limitations has run out on criminal charges, Official Misconduct (which doesn't have a statute of limitations) is a real possibility
And we think we've figured out at least a part of the end game:
  • COPA is going to be launched near the end of September;
  • COPA needs immediate legitimacy (the new "watchword");
  • COPA knows the fastest and easiest way to "legitimize" themselves is to completely discredit IPRA.
To do this, COPA is revisiting shootings, scandals, complaints, anything at all that has a loose end. And they will loudly proclaim to the "community"
  • "You were right all along! We are taking a second look at all of these old scandals/shootings/complaints and do you know what we are finding? Every allegation, every investigation, every so-called "justified" action taken by the police was tainted by IPRA's horrible investigations! Look at what we are going to do now!"
And do you know what they are going to do?
  • Administratively Separate dozens, maybe scores, of cops.
Why else re-open shootings where no new information has come to light, no lawsuits have been filed or paid out? Cops who have been cleared are suddenly at call-back, or the subject of witch hunts. Cops who have come out on top of investigations or hearings are suddenly targeted for bumper stickers? It's a hunting expedition and coppers' heads are the prizes. You may have been within State Law, but the Administrative side? It's built to trip you up.

Furthermore, do you think those on the periphery of some of the more notable scandals - cops who were "cleared" or saved their own skins via political means - are in the clear? We don't. Official Misconduct can cost you your career and pension upon conviction, and it is a charge that is far easier to make stick. It's a lever to compel resignations.

Watch your backs.

Great, maybe they can re-open the Lt exam cheating scandal that IAD, IPRA and the IG office blew off.

And that's not the half of it. Mayor needs COPA for the next election and COPA is on an all out rampage to credit themselves and the mayor to an unknowing public by lying and throwing coppers under the bus for correct police procedures. IPRA to COPA HAS NOT CHANGED one bit. Same director, same staff but a renewed desire to screw coppers who have done their job correctly and spin incidents into their b.s. favor. COPA does not have legitimate investigators. They are people who have failed in the private sector with backgrounds in professions that have nothing to do with law enforcement, legal or proper and correct investigations. Your life is literally in the hands of accountants that can't add and sales people who couldn't make their quotas. Did you happen to notice that Lori Lightfoot has since rubber stamped sustained CR's at police board meetings? She knows you can't afford $100K to hire a lawyer for federal court. Btw, if IPRA was so bad, how come Lightfoot wasn't fired for mismanaging a civilian agency to overlook the police. Instead, she was given a promotion to director of the Police Board.

If this is in fact the trend, then look for any crime reduction by pro-active policing to be pretty much non-existent in the foreseeable future.

The liberals are sowing the seeds of de-policing at every turn and the community they swear to defend will reap the whirlwind of crime.

There is nothing a sergeant, lieutenant or watch commander can do to mitigate an action of a police officer, whether the action was by accident, omission or intentional due to confusion of understanding the law or an order. Accountability is now becoming self-preservation. Losing a few hours or even a few days has turned into losing the job or worse going to prison over bullshit. And that ain't going to happen in anyone's book.

Rahm's cover for sitting on the
JVD/LMcD tape to ensure his re-election
to a 2nd and altogether undeserved term.

Rahm's political insurance policy against
even the remote possibility of a not guilty
verdict being returned against JVD.

Rahm's cover and shielding from any responsibility
for running CPD on the cheap by stripping away millions
in funding for hands-on firearms and use of force training
and using that money to pander to the Catered-To Constituencies.

Rahm is willing to destroy CPD and by extension, allow
this city to be lit on fire just to save his worthless skin.

Just imagine how bad it would have been had Hillary won?

Or perhaps it's because she lost that Rahm felt his political
aspirations were crushed by the same house that dropped out
of the sky on Hill-Dog.

The only real immediate defense is that someone in
IPRA/COPA actually has an intact conscience and
reveals what's going on behind the scenes.

Perhaps this is the "Police Reform" that Rahm
was playing so close to his vest?

I wouldn't mind seeing all of those who've escaped scandal and stupidity courtesy of clout, nepostism and connections getting it jammed in their balloon knots balls deep.

The multi-tier CPD disciplinary system needed to be addressed since the inception of the department. Like most, I support efforts at a total overhaul of the entire system. Only we all know that the only thing COPA will target is the low hanging fruit while the connected will be allowed to repeatedly on their dicks with no repercussions. Just like always.

Meet the new boss, same as the old boss.

It's the perfect storm complete with immpeccable timing to ruin the lives of some sacrificial lamb coppers: JVD trial in motion. 9.5 desperate for reelection. Contact negotiations progressing. Burge 'curriculum' being force-fed to CPS simpletons. A Madigan orchestrated consent decree in the making. Homegrown terrorists arriving in November. Yep... sounds like the right time to throw some more coppers under the Political Expediency Express.

You are correct. These are not investigations or hearings. These are hunts to fulfill their anti police agenda. In their convoluted minds they are using "restorative justice" to make up for perceived past injustices, never letting facts, evidence, or the truth get in their way. The deck is now completely stacked against the police in Chicago. The democratic party has merged with black lies matter. Do what they demand NOTHING. It hurts me to say that, but it is the only way to survive until sanity is restored to our leadership. AG Sessions please drain the Chicago Swamp.

SCC you are so right about COPA bragging to "the community"
This political witch hunt is orchestrated by Rahm's never ending placating/pandering to "the community"

Ever since Rahm panicked that he might be found out that he sat on the McDonald video for political gain he began obsessively pandering to "the community". It's his way of hoping to distract "the community" so they'll forget about Rahm's cover up.

From Rahm's perspective he couldn't care less how many coppers are railroaded nor how many careers and families will suffer due to his
ordering of all these political witch hunts.
Rahm truly despises us so he has absolutely no problem throwing as many of us under his bus as possible.
In his eyes it simply keeps "the community" at bay.


Also don't think for a second that Rahm isn't also enjoying the timing of all this bullshit..... during very contentious contract negotiations.
He'll have his lapdog media sullying up CPD every chance they get to further turn the public against CPD.
Rahm will enjoy painting CPD as incorrigible ...... and then he'll say we're being greedy because we won't "be part of the solution" of being "fiscally responsible"

Rahm is lower than a snake. Karma is a motherfucker Rahm.
There'll be a special place in Hell for you.

Yes, the FOP better be ready to battle and better be ready to go to the courts to protect due process. What's more important POs better start reading orders and doing the job the way the order says. COPA doesn't give a damn if something else works better or is easier deviate from the order and you are screwed. Give every caller a report go get a CtA check, get an event number at a park on your beat and sit there for a few minutes. Get through the tour

And said "crime(s)" being defined as such and by who/whom?

Chicago has been allowed to carve-out and re-define
that which criminal and that which is not, and how
what is alleged to be criminal conduct is applied
to which "demographic subset."

...First, they hijacked the language and subverted
that which is universally accepted and understood
to be in the realm of the common sense and universally
accepted.

Right?

That which you're seeing, is disbelieved
by everybody else.

Or vice versa.
Right?

Making war against The Police in the name
of naked, cynical and venal politics and calling
it "Reform."

Right?

Whoooooo...

No wonder Chicago has been seen as
a truly hellified place.

So much about it defies common decency
and common sense.

Once we fix THEM, everything else
will fall into place."

A few things... yes, it's the same boss, but not the same investigators. Only a handful of IPRA was rehired. A majority of the new investigators have legal backgrounds or law enforcement or were investigators elsewhere. IPRA was lacking in a lot of ways and too quick to make cases not sustained, or just never close them. A fair and thorough investigation benefits the department and the city. It's not a witch hunt. Turning on your camera will save your job, but why not just do what you're supposed to do in the first place.

Rahm a cabana (He formed the Copa) (to the tune of Copacabana song)

His name was Rahm, he was the mayor
With 50 thieves in his lair and taxes up to there
he would legislate and do the TIF funds
And while he tried to be a star
Madigan always tended bar
Across the crowded city, they stole without pity
They always asked for more!!

[Chorus:]
He formed the copa, To screw the Coppers
The crookedest spot of all , next to city hall
Where Lying with a passion is always the fashion
At the copa.... Rahm lost his police

His name was Van Dyke
He wore a Star
He responded to a call, he saw Laqan dancing there
And when he saw the knife, he yelled drop it or your life.
But Van Dyke went a bit to far
He should have stayed in the car
And then the bullets flew and Laqan was smashed in two
There was Cop and 16 gun shots
Rahm Knew who shot who
But he lied to you

[Chorus:]
He formed the copa, To screw the Coppers
The crookedest spot of all , next to city hall
Where Lying with a passion is always the fashion
At the copa.... Rahm lost his police

His name is Rahm, he was a mayor
But that was many years ago, when he used to have a show
Now it's a Black lives matter, but not for rahm
Still in suit he used to wear
The thieves have fled his lair
he sits there so refined, and drinks himself half-blind
he lost his teachers and he lost his cops
Now he's lost his mind
At the copa... don't lose your job
Don't vote for Rahm

On the bumper sticker:

Picture a supervisor going through the parking lot.

Now picture that supervisor seeing your legally parked vehicle.

Now imagine that vehicle has a few FOP sticker etc.

The supervisor looks at you vehicle and then proclaims they are offended by a sticker on your privately owned vehicle which may be your spouses.

NOW the kicker

That supervisor types in your license plate into the LEADS system for a non police matter?
Is any rule broken?
Can anyone just run plates all day in the parking lot? may be to get a state attorney address? A judges info? A tact officer home address? COPA's investigator info?
So let me know if the rule has changed because the last time i took that long leads test it did not say anything about violating 1st amendment rights of free speech on a privately owned vehicle.

It's been going on for decades, a political witch hunt against the Police at every Democrat run city.
That's what pawns are for, someone has to be the racist and why not the Police.
This is not about restoring, maintaining or preserving law and order.
I hope the remaining hard chargers soon figure that out.

COPA is getting millions of dollars and it has to prove to the folks that it's as effective as promised at any cost.
Just about every politician here is counting on it. If they can't find recent or current examples, they (already) have been preparing many old cases and right out of the chute COPA will come out swinging.

A majority of blue shirts are going to be sacrificed as usual and the witch hunt will go on for about two years to prove their point that the Police are the problem.

Avoid ghetto affairs or be prepared to defend yourself.
Rahm gave away and opened up files of internal documents to a biased ragtag citizen review board.

If it was the 1600s these assholes would be running around with torches looking for witches to burn. Liberals are nothing but modern day Puritans: paranoid fanatics (with a religion of Marxism/progressivism) with a pathological loathing of anyone who isn't a part of their demented cause.

Their narrative is utterly illogical and cannot be defended by any data or rational thinking. This infuriates them because it threatens the future existence of their ideology. If enough people wake up, they're toast and they know it. There are few things worse than a crazy person backed into a corner, and the liberals are crazy. Their lies are coming home to roost, they are losing control, the cracks are becoming too apparent too hide or cover up with talk and promises.

SCC, everybody is missing the big picture. Evidence being some of the comments mentioned above. It doesn't matter if your 100% in the right. Ipra/Copa has all the power now. They can sustain any CR without any evidence to back it up. The Supt can disagree with their finding but he no longer has the final say so. Your case goes in front of the police board(Lori Lighfoot). Good luck. Here is the biggest issue that is going on now. Ipra unfairly has the final say on cases now, but their making decisions on cases back when the Supt had the final say so. Now that the rules are on their side they can go after old cases that they know the Supt would have ruled in favor of the officer. A class action lawsuit should be brought for any case that Supt non concurred and said case happened when the Supt had final say so. Ipra is playing with rules when it benefits their agenda. FOP asleep at the wheel.

#1 Rahm pick Farley and told her sustain as many cases as she can
#2 Rahm wants a quota on sustained cases. Every investigator will be pressured to
sustain as many cases as possible
#3 What happened in the McDonald shooting is a prelude to what is going to happen
in the future in regards to partners. Partners will be accused of Rule 14 if
there is any type of discrepancies of the reporting of the facts
#4 Rahm has ordered Farley to "get" any officer no matter what.
#5 Rahm wants to do away with the requirement regarding Affidavits
#6 Rahm wants to do away with partners discussing their actions. In other words
the first supervisor on the scene will separate partners.
#7 Rahm wants any FOP Shooting Representative (after shooting adviser)
discussions to be part of COPA's Investigation. This however does not
pertain if a PO converses with a Attorney. There is Supreme Case law
regarding these discussions however Rahm wants end run this law
What SSc posted regarding COPA to discredit IPRA is true. The reviews of previous shootings are based on any shooting that were marginal. Next up are going to review allegations of excessive force complaints where the ""Victims were seriously Injured"". COPA is now reviewing these cases where there were serious injuries.

since Antifa & other nazicrat Hitler Youth groups which all comprise the nazicrat paramilitary wing to impose terror upon the innocent public are not subject to job/Pension blackmail, the CPD is the prime candidate to replace the current unreliable paramilitarists in the Partei. You all however have job, career & pension to be used as leverage over you, you will be reliable lest your family be destroyed & you grow old,poor & pensionless.

After you have accepted your ultimate & total political subjugation to the (very clever) Alinskyite Rahmista's, you will obey: you will break the heads you're told to break. You will shoot who your are told to shoot when you are told to shoot them down. You will arrest who you are told to arrest on the charges you are told to arrest them on

The holy & sacred community will be secured against your new enemy: evil, middle class folks of the palest of pale tones

Good luck expecting anything from the FOP. Unions are traditionally & totally in the back pockets of our newly mutated & metasized nazicrat political forces

They aren't going to fight for you when they have contempt for the members and look down on you. Any activist groups marching for you? Ha, nice try. You gonna help each other? Might want to stop talking behind each other's backs spreading BS rumors about another cop just because of your own unresolved issues. You gonna stay down on that parker for an hour so another cop gets stuck with that domestic on your beat? Stop breeding resentment toward each other and you might have a chance to stand together against any group that's coming after you. Right now, COPA is like a rock python patiently waiting for its prey to come too close to the brush. It's GAME OVER. And all you can do is add this to your list of shit to complain about. Complaining about it isn't gonna do a damn thing. You might as well pour some salt and ketchup all over yourself before you go to work because you're about to be COPA's lunch.

The union has actually been lying for several years to members. Read all the years past newsletters on the website. If your patient enough you should read all past newsletters over the years and see with your own eyes the massive shift in tone with all labor issues and pension issues. The union is totally on same side of the city and for last several years always had a great relationship with Don O'Neill. Look at health care for retirees.
Officers our Union Needs to get back to basics with addressing core principles and real enforcement of the obligations of the city. Many secrets are slowly getting out about the union and its silent pattern ship with the city. Some officers CBA rights have and continued to be blatantly violated by the city. I know a officer who was injured in the line of duty never released to return to work by CPD doctors or any doctor and a judge stated as well the officer is disabled yet the union does nothing for personal resentment to the officer. This copper is in bad bad shape and the department just continues withholding back his legal entitled disability income and no health insurance. This cop has nothing plus recently got a 25 k bill for his work injurys from 2009.

Our pensions and rights are being violated and the union does nothing but sit back .

I'll add my two cents to this post.
I took the Use of Force class today. It was given by two Sgt's and a Lt.
They kept harping on how We lowly P.O's are not educated enough on our General orders regarding the Use OF Force. How we are afraid to do our job because we don't take the time to educate ourselves.
The Lt kept harping on how we could do almost anything to the shitheads and still do our job by just articulating what was done by us to the offender.
Blah, Blah Blah....
Basically they want us to bring in heads and everything will be alright and nothing can happen to us if we only articulate everything we needed to do to put hands on people.
During the class they want you to critique the actions of some poor officers caught on their body cameras.
All in all it is a feeble attempt to get us to bring in more heads at our expense.
I will continue to Only answer my calls for service, back up coppers and generate paper for the citizens.

A few things... yes, it's the same boss, but not the same investigators. Only a handful of IPRA was rehired. A majority of the new investigators have legal backgrounds or law enforcement or were investigators elsewhere. IPRA was lacking in a lot of ways and too quick to make cases not sustained, or just never close them. A fair and thorough investigation benefits the department and the city. It's not a witch hunt. Turning on your camera will save your job, but why not just do what you're supposed to do in the first place.

Bottom line is did the city and the dept train its officers for every situation, law, rules, and clearly define what an officer can and can't do in every situation. Most likely not 90% of what officers face and have to make decisions on every day. Looks to me that the dept and city is liable to its officers for not adequately training them from from the harm the elected officials are putting them in. The FOP should be hiring a shit load of heavy hitting lawyers to protect its members. The officers need to start suing and start receiving those large payouts that are being given to the criminals.

I'll also be sure to check all the boxes. Oh and far as the other guys on the watch, you might want to kiss some ass so they will buy a ticket for your benifit. Dumbass

well kinda correct. Not that anyone is better than anyone else but when you work harder then yes you get a few more perks. So in short, next time a tac car wrecks for doing police work or whatever they need you are still going to do it... But you will just act hard on the blog. So do us all a favor, don't forget to fill in all the boxes and be sure to clear promptly when finished so as to not screw the other guys on the watch with your jobs pooch!

I'll write your crash report and I will also include you as being the at fault vehicle for violating G.O. which we all know you have done. Better start calling for your warrior tact bros to write up things for you because the rest of us aren't about to get fired for your B.S.

"SOS Scandal has been re-opened, and additional Officers & Supervisors being looked at"...TRUE, VERY TRUE.

A very good Lt. (018) was just forced to retire because the SOS scandal is being re-opened. Boys-n-girls, the Mayor wants all the old bones outta the closet before he announces his re-election campaign. AND, if some of those old bones "end up" in Indictments/Rule 14 violations/firings that 9.5 can claim were from a previous administration & overlooked by IPRA BUT discovered by his "new" COPA - its a win-win scenario. POOF, instant proof that his mandated changes are producing fruit & are transparent.

IAD Chief EW is on his last leg and IAD Commander is putting in his papers in October. Look for Chief M.S. to takeover IAD. Chief of D's is still up in the air at this point...but D Unit Commander B.D. will get a bump to Deputy Chief of D's by end of year.

Latest COPA is doing now: All officers who were on disability and caught working. Most were given job back and no punishment at all are now going to be fired for fraudulent behavior. COPA says this will
Save millions for chicago taxpayers and pension funds because all who will be fired will be told the bad news prior to 20
Years active duty! All better get another IOD and do it right!!!!

Don't know where you heard this, but there is no rule against working another job when you are on duty disability. How can they be punished for not breaking a rule

Wacky Sgt on swat whose had a pattern of harassment and domestic violent CR #s with several different women are being re-opened. His abusive and sometimes violent behavior has continued even till today and includes intimidating other police officers who work with his ex wife. You can take that to the bank he should be fired. This time some serious allegations involving many victims. CPD ignored this whacko for over 20 years!! This is a major fuck up on CPD 's part for allowing this treatment of women on the job by this psycho. The abuse was not properly investigated. Blame the victim not the rapist mentality. Scandal equal to women in the military being physically and mentally abused and harassed.

Guess the bosses were too busy harassing the beat men for activity

Bottom line is did the city and the dept train its officers for every situation, law, rules, and clearly define what an officer can and can't do in every situation. Most likely not 90% of what officers face and have to make decisions on every day. Looks to me that the dept and city is liable to its officers for not adequately training them from from the harm the elected officials are putting them in. The FOP should be hiring a shit load of heavy hitting lawyers to protect its members. The officers need to start suing and start receiving those large payouts that are being given to the criminals. Backwards

It is impossible for any city to train its officers for every situation. Each and every job is unique and when when you think you have seen or heard everything a new situation arrives

Has a new gf on the job that is a recruit and she has no clue how sick and crazy this swat sgt is. Hope they get her and his other victims some help. Dept owes it to these police officers not to be treated in this abusive manner.

Great, maybe they can re-open the Lt exam cheating scandal that IAD, IPRA and the IG office blew off.
IAD was suppose to notify the IG office immediately of the cheating allegations and the tainted test, which they did not!
The sergeant and lieutenant union does not care. They are bought and sold by the mayor.

9/05/2017 12:26:00 AM


Don't forget the blatant cheating during swat school. Several of us that didn't "pass" are getting together at the FOP hall in the near future. Hopefully SCC will help us get the word out since there were two swat schools and many of us saw the same favoritism of certain individuals.

Not cool ass wipes.

All roads lead back to Rome. Blame the goofy red head sergeant. Swat was legit till crossover Tommy put him in charge of the process. Now only "Friends of Matt" make the team. He's a disease on the team with a self serving agenda. He has caused serious division of the team. The Lt and other Sgts are scared to stand up to him.

Leave the team ML. You are an embarrassment.

Should have been stripped years ago. Danger to himself and others. Ask the academy about him. STALKER

Psycho does not accurately describe him. His ex-wife is a great gal and fantastic firearms instructor. He screwed her over by

banging a recruit that she was training, Now he comes around and harasses his ex and others at the academy. Total nut job!! Shouldn't

be on the job, let alone at swat. He's making a lot of officers nervous at the academy with his craziness. We got your back Lisa!!!

He's been doing this for years and always getting away with inappropriate behavior towards women. He was bothering my partner's wife

after she rejected his ass. The w/c told him to stay away from her and made sure he wasn't her supervisor any more.

They would see him driving around their south side house when he was off duty. Real creep even though he lived on the northside.

We would refer to him as stranger danger. Glad to know he's now on SWAT.

Technically he didn't pass the testing for swat. He failed. Double merit hacks, Lt MM and Lt TL decided to put him on the team against the judgement of the cadre. Now we are stuck with this nut job.

A megalomaniac is a pathological egotist, that is, someone with a psychological disorder with symptoms like delusions of grandeur and an obsession with power. We also use the word megalomaniac more informally for people who behave as if they're convinced of their absolute power and greatness. Your garden-variety egomaniac might be self-centered and overconfident but he's a little softy compared with the megalomaniac who wants to control the world.

But if a civilian came in with the same complaint she would walk out after the WC got a CR. If the accused was a po you can bet the situation would be handled a lot different

Bosses at the academy are scared of their shadow. They want to keep things hushed up so they look the other way.

About a month ago, this nut job from swat, demanded the LT from the academy to kick out the x-wife from an exercise at Soldier Field. Instead of standing up for her, the Deputy and Lt ordered the ex wife to leave. She's a class act and did what she was told, even though we thought it was BS. The bosses are scarced of him snapping!! So they empower this nut and treat her like shit.

True true I was there. This ginger pumpkin head SWAT sgt was getting ready to have an episode because his ex wife was there. Get this.......She was assigned to this exercise by the academy. Very disrespectful that pumpkin head psycho sgt talked to the higher ranking bosses in that manner and tone. They were worried about him snapping right there. Zero concern about this goof banging a recruit that his wife was training. No balls to stop him from harassing other coppers at her work place. Cowardly leadership.

He didn't last long in SOS. Fred bounced him on a phone order after he was caught lying about a car accident. This nut job decided to take a squad car and go confront his gf who was a PPO and her FTO. Think it happened at a hospital. Doctors and nurses had to jump in and separate all three of them. On the way there or back he gets into an accident. Lies to the Sgt about it and gets busted. Gone in a day. Late 90s or early 2000? Can't remember exactly. Goof balls like him didn't last in SOS.
