"Removing"

  • Two local legal scholars who examined thousands of police misconduct allegations have determined that taking those complaints more seriously “could substantially reduce the most serious incidents of police misconduct.” Northwestern University law professor Max Schanzenbach and Kyle Rozema of the University of Chicago examined 50,000 misconduct complaints lodged against members of the CPD between 2002 and 2014.

    They found that “citizen allegations are a valid predictor of serious misconduct” by police officers.

    In a soon-to-be-published paper, the two write that, when it comes to racking up misconduct complaints, an officer’s assigned district does not matter. Schanzenbach and Rozema found that officers who were the subject of misconduct complaints in more violent areas of Chicago were just as likely to be the subject of complaints in safer parts of the city.
The solution?
  • The two concluded that “removing the worst 1 percent” of Chicago Police officers — about 120 people — and replacing them with “an average officer” would have saved Chicago taxpayers more than $6 million in payouts between 2009 and 2014.
Interesting wording - "removing."

How about "removing" the clouted who get away with misconduct, again and again and again and again?

Keep an eye on this report.

Removing? How about acknowledging and addressing patterns of allegations with training,mentoring and ,if intractable, progressive discipline. Programs have been in place for years (decades?) How about addressing inadequacies in the academy and using the probationary period to weed out people who shouldn’t have been hired?

So 120 officers “removed” would have saved the city $6 million.
How much would have been saved in the same period by removing 1% of the middlemen the city require in order to do business.
You know, the required “minority” contractors that double and triple the cost of city business in order to guarantee
the alderscum, mayor, and other elected city officials get their kick backs?

Don’t these professors have any real work to do ? May e they should do a breakdown of gang members and see how many of them we need to REMOVE to stop the killings that are devastating the city in all kinds of neighborhoods. You see professor, it doesnt matter what neigborhood the bangers are from. They can pretty much kill anywhere,and they do. Come up with a report on who is creating the violence and maybe I can respect that. Nt a miniscule nmber of polic who are NOT causing the killings. Morons.

What will be interesting to find out is who gave these two ivory tower professors access to 50,000 files? Is there not something about privacy of personnel files to talk about? Yes, i agree that the system has been broken for some time for those who have influence have escaped any sort of punishment while those who have no clout get it in the neck every time. The PC crowd wants to take away all safeguards so they can suspend or fire with ease.

120 POs cost $6 million.
Over 5 years.

6m divided by 120 = $50,000
$50K divided by 5 years = $10K a year.

10K divided by 12 = $833 a month.

While any payout is too much, we waste
more than 10K a WEEK on hundreds of things,
like paper, for all the copies of reports nobody
reads.

Oh, how much did this report cost?

Lets not forget the "bullshit" complaints (CR's) that these assholes put against us! A good chunk of these complaints are unfounded. Back in the days the idiots that made complaints could say anything, now they must sign an affidavit to that complaint which now holds them liable. This affidavit certainly cut back some of the false allegations.

Since LBJ began the great war on poverty over 50 years ago it seems the geniuses that live in social isolation, surrounded by teenagers, and telling us all how to live our lives have accomplished only one thing. Instead of bringing the the quality of life for the poor up to mean of the working class, they have normalized ghetto values across all segments of society. I find it hard to believe that they didn’t already have the recommendations of their research project before they even looked at the data.

I have been retired from cpd for several years.
But my last unit was IAD and the records section in IAD clearly had a pattern list of CR numbers.
This list showed a consistent list of CPD members along with CR findings.

The best part was the findings of the CR investigation along with opinions of Command staff who reviewed the investigation.

Yes it was up to IAD Chief or Deputy to push case or drop case.
There is proof of this since it was a FOIA request. And plenty of people had to answer questions by Illinois AG.

But keep on signing off on that Ethics report every year. So glad my confidentiality agreement has lapsed

So they advocate removing the top 1%. No matter how many are removed, there will always be a top 1%, with their complaints becoming lass and less numerous. And there is no way of identifying who will end up in the top 10% until they become one of the top 10%. They also don't say how the complaints are weighted for length of time on the job. You can't compare number of complaints between people with 5 years on the job and 20 years on the job. Also, comparing the number of complaints against somebody working outside against somebody working in an administrative position skews the results.

>>>> Two local legal scholars ..... Northwestern University law professor Max Schanzenbach and Kyle Rozema of the University of Chicago examined 50,000 misconduct complaints lodged against members of the CPD between 2002 and 2014. <<<<

Wow! So these two egg-heads actually went through each of the 50,000 'misconduct' complaints -- every single one of them -- and 'examined' them as to their validity? For leftist trolls that means checking to see if they were justified complaints or complete bullshit from pissed off people (and folk) who were arrested.

So excuse me for being a skeptic of this 'study' but in looking into these two scholars, nowhere does it say they wear Superman Capes. Hell it doesn't even say they were top of the class at Evelyn Wood's Speed Reading School(/s). And actually Examining 50,000 complaints is a Herculean task. If each 'scholar' examined Two Complaints a day it would take them .... 34 1/4 Years!!

Which brings us to this conclusion: .......
+++++ The two concluded that “removing the worst 1 percent” of Chicago Police officers — about 120 people — ... would have saved Chicago taxpayers more than $6 million in payouts between 2009 and 2014. +++++

Uh... what happened to years 2002 through 2008?!?! How the f--k can you conclude anything when all the data isn't included??? Or.... isn't PUBLISHED because it doesn't fit your anti-police leftist narrative!!

By the way 'professors' that $6 million dollars paid over those 7 years is only $847,143 dollars a year. And the way Tiny Dancer, and Richie Daley before him, throws money around to 'winners' of The Ghetto Lottery, it's peanuts.

So here's MY conclusion 'professors' -- Take this study of yours and shove it up your collective asses.

Not sure if Schanzenbach and Rozema hold adjunct positions at their respective universities.
But it seems these two are the lastest expert eggheads who have ALLLLLLLLL the answers.
Both of these two have extensive theoretical backgrounds in economics and drifted over to law.
Very likely never held a real jobs other than bookstore coffee clerk or radical campaign pollster.

Rozema a UC and Pritzker Law grad, go figure more.

To the jokers making a poor attempt at contrasting these eggheads' suggestion with the private sector...you do realize that what they describe is how the private sector has worked since forever, right? Even setting aside the Jack Welch cult of ditching the bottom ten percent every year, perennial fuckups get dealt with one way or another because they sap the morale and productivity of the whole organization. Even in academia, you can only really get away with being useless if you've got powerful friends. Which brings us to the real problem, in both public and private sector, which is political patronage systems and the corrosive effects they have on the host organization. Until that gets addressed, complaining about bad actors is like pissing in the ocean.

Usually it ends up being a small number of people who are the worst offenders in any organization.

You get rid of them and it markedly improves the organization overall.

The cops should report the clouted who do dirt. Period.

What makes you think k they don't? Some of these cols have been reported , charged, disciplined, and fired, and got their jobs back. And if you report it, it depends who gets the report, also depends who the clout is.

Name-calling, summarily bashing the professors, etc., is pure bullshit and ignorance. What they wrote ain't rocket science, folks. Most studies actually aren't, for that matter. The same logic can be applied to the streets. Remove the worst offenders and the neighborhood improves.

Citizen complaint numbers have some validity. That does NOT mean every complaint is valid but it is a signal that if enough come in you need to look further. In fairness, if you aren't productive you are less likely to get complaints (de-policing, eh?). You have to account for this in any analysis, of course. Ironically, the same logic also goes to criminals. In doing risk assessments the best evaluations come from the offenses mopes were arrested for, not convicted of as a result of plea bargains, etc.

The only thing weird I see here is that people were paid to say the obvious. In other words, do you need a $70,000 study for a 70 cent answer?

While we're at it, another 70 cent answer is that if you keep your employees happy they will be better and more productive. Heaven forbid government would do that!
