  • Cook County Sheriff Thomas Dart dumped high-ranking jail officers to cut payroll following the repeal of a countywide tax on sugary drinks, but kept political appointees who supervised acupuncture, cable television and “talent for inmates,” a lawsuit by laid-off officers contends.

    The lawsuit filed Thursday in Circuit Court by 17 former jail commanders argues the senior officers were not allowed to accept a drop in rank, and were targeted because they had been active in a drive to form a union nearly a decade ago.

    A spokeswoman for Dart fired back that the sheriff was coping with a “bad hand” dealt after County Board President Toni Preckwinkle mandated sweeping cuts— and said the department has never employed an acupuncturist, nor the other positions named in the lawsuit.
And how overloaded is the jail?
  • Both suits allege Dart has hired some 200 civilians as directors, high-paying appointed jobs whose ranks were not thinned in the same proportion as employees whose jobs have a more direct role in public safety.
How the Hell do you need 200 directors for anything? CPD has 17 Deputy Chiefs and that's about 10 too many by any measure. But 200 Directors?

Don’t forget about the director of cable TV. Yes, it’s a real job in the county and it’s 6 figures. It also happens to be a relative of Bobbie Steele

This was even before Dart cut the Commanders, many of them Ex-Military who served the Sheriff's office and their Country.. The Cook County Commissioners stated Dart has 498 management positions..

Line-By-Line investigation into the Sheriff's budget!

Sheriff Tom Dart's budget has increased 124 million (inflation considered 41 million) since he took office in 2006. The Sheriff added 68 Shakman exempt positions while eliminating 602 full time predominately officer positions in the last decade. Records indicate the Sheriff has been incredibly reckless with budget decisions, resulting in 600+ less officers providing valuable resources and protection to the citizens of Cook County. Records also indicate that Sheriff has had more than sufficient funding to keep staffing at standard/safe levels but inexplicably chose not to do so!

2006 Sheriff Budget:: $388,872,980.00
2016 Sheriff Budget:: $513,351,967.00

Elimination of 602 Jobs..
Sheriff office 2006:: 7,306 full time positions.
Sheriff office 2016:: 6,704 full time positions.

Political Hiring..
Exempt Positions 2006:: 176 positions
Exempt Positions 2016:: 244 positions.

One of the plaintiffs made a statement to the media about the pending lawsuit. Her delivery was completely ungrammatical.

It made me wonder how Dart or anyone else could have ever promoted such a person to a supervisory position?

My two favorites: “Director of Directors” and director of cable TV. Cable for the prisoners??? Democrats are synonymous with broke ass communists. Weak asses that are strong by their numbers. Is it true that dart has a secondary told as director of cuckolding operations?

OT but related. Was watching TV last night. Saw a Sun times add supporting for Pritzker. Media organizations announcing political support for specific parties and candidates. More communist propaganda.

The math is pretty simple. Preckwinkle emptied the jail through her cronie Kim
Foxx simply through decriminalization and re-labeling violent crimes as non-violent crime. Dart went along with it when it suited him politically. Evans went along with it because Preckwinkle got some members of the Illinois Supreme Court to threaten Evans with removal if he didn’t go along with it. So the jail population is now reduced by more than 5,000 people per day.

Here goes the math: 5000 inmates x $143/day = $715,000/day savings. $715,000 x 365 = $260,975,000

President Preckwinkle, where is our $260,975,000?

it should not be real hard to determine if the county jail was supplying acupuncture services to inmates. it seems unlikely that the sheriff's minion would flat out deny something like that if it was true, when the facts can be readily discovered.

Commie Dart doing it intentionally, destroying the system is the Communist plan for the USA. This is their big push to take over fully, Because they are freaking out over Trumps election, it's do or die for the Commies now. They know they are going down the drain fast and that the Sheeple have all weekend . It's a nationwide push by the Communists that has been going on since the 70s and is now in full blossom .

Yet you look around see the county coppers, driving pool vehicles that resemble our junkers but yet he is hiring so many 6 figured waste of space directors on the democratic hiring "friends and family' program, but then again they have to payoff and kickback to the democratic masters salary, hey just like Dorothee brown's office and cpd bosses kick back to keep that position!

On another subject:
2 killed at Central Michigan University, gunman 'armed and dangerous' still at large

What is our plan, you know with the media sensationalizing this is only a matter of time when we have to respond to something violent at a school! Most of these happen during day shift 2nd watch when we have fewest coppers working,and mostly 1 man cars.

Every car every copper should be rifle trained and rifle with them at all times, I know it is bulky but if your 1st car on scene better to be well prepared,and ready to go in!
Years ago at least (I know many years ago) we had shotguns in the cars and all you would had to do say at a tavern/bar fight just walk in rack it and watch how quickly the aniamls would calm down, now with the enw and fuzzy policing we are the bastardized for anything and everything we do, job 31 is protect each other simple as that!

1) There is not a director of acupuncture or cable in the jail. Those are positions elsewhere in the county budget. The cable position is for the county board. The acupuncture position is for the Health and Hospital System.
2) If you look at what these allegations are based on -- a list floating around blogs and facebook pages, you can easily tell that the individual pulled a list of all directors across the entire county budget. That is where the 200 figure comes from.
This is made up inforamtion and it is just factually not true.

I'll just leave this little nugget here . . .


The heaviest element known to science was recently discovered by physicists at a major U.S. research university. The element, tentatively named administratium, has no protons or electrons and thus has an atomic number of 0. However, it does have 1 neutron, 125 assistant neutrons, 75 vice neutrons and 111 assistant vice neutrons, which gives it an atomic mass of 312. These 312 particles are held together by a force that involves the continuous exchange of meson-like particles called morons.

Since it has no electrons, administratium is inert. However, it can be detected chemically as it impedes every reaction it comes in contact with. According to the discoverers, a minute amount of administratium caused one reaction to take over four days to complete when it would have normally occurred in less than a second.

Administratium has a normal half-life of approximately three years, at which time it does not decay, but instead undergoes a reorganization in which assistant neutrons, vice neutrons and assistant vice neutrons exchange places. Some studies have shown that the atomic mass actually increases after each reorganization.

Research at other laboratories has indicated that administratium occurs naturally in the atmosphere. It tends to concentrate at certain points such as government agencies, large corporations, and universities. It can usually be found in the newest, best appointed, and best maintained buildings.

Scientists point out that administratium is known to be toxic at any level of concentration and can easily destroy any productive reaction where it is allowed to accumulate. Attempts are being made to determine how administratium can be controlled to prevent irreversible damage, but results to date are not promising.

There’s even a director directing the directors director.
Just about everyone is a patronage player in a management position.
If your not, then you’re square.
I know the County barber is a director...of style and profile.

Every morning Dart has to have someone put his pants on for him.
Poor guy never knows if he’s coming or going.
It’s not an easy job with wicked Prickwinker getting up in your shit for no reason.

Allowing the County to run unchecked is an nuts.
Nothing changes until PrickWanker is ousted from Cook County and Rahm booted back to DC to advise a sneaky, shady shadow gubmint operative (if he’s looking for a flat, I got a guy).

And then there’s the Prickwanker endorsed referendum on the Cook County Primary ballot this March 20 :
Legalize narcotic weed, but huffing legal readily available toluene derivatives is still illegal under Intoxicating Compounds (guess there’s no disproportionate useages)

It’s about time for Recall and Term Limits on the Referenda for Elected City, County and State officials.
I’d settle for a Federal audit of the County’s books.
