Lemmer Award

The Special Service Award is described as follows:
  • ...is granted to any Department sworn or civilian member whose service contributed to any event that has a significant impact upon the historical direction and operations of the Department.
Now imagine being this disliked and garnering this little respect from the people you are supposed to be leading (click for a larger version):


The Department neglected to mention if the "significant impact" was positive or negative and the submitting supervisor obviously took it in a negative direction. The supervisor also took a three day suspension for his warped sense of humor and we are told he took it with a smile.

But how big of an asshole do you have to be that people are willing to take suspension time over your inability to lead? This award (#8099999) was deleted a few years after submission at the insistence of Lemmer, in case anyone ever discovered how little respect he had from the rank and file. And now, he makes his bones belittling men and women who have done more police work than he was ever a part of.

Retired Sergeant Gerald Murphy was the balls behind the submission of that nomination.

Murphy was also a persistent thorn in the side of lieutenant John Andrews - another micromanaging, morale killing company man that couldn’t be trusted as far he could be thrown.

Murphy went out of his way to aggravate, inconvenience and create more work for those two clowns as a tit-for-tat when they’d implement bullshit, unnecessary or redundant tasks or duties for the sergeants and their troops.

What people like Lemmer, Andrews et al will never be able to figure out is that the 011th District was functioning long before their arrival and that there was absolutely no need to reinvent the wheel in a shithole where 98% of the district hates the police. It was also absolutely uncalled for to nitpick minor uniform infractions, lunches that ran past 30 minutes and to hold time due requests hostage. And this was after putting the arm on same coppers (and sergeants) for activity under threats for non-compliance. But I guess such actions are expected from wannabes with rank who were never the police.

I’ll never forget how giddy with excitement Lemmer was when Glenn Evans would let him ride along to play police and harass the Arab store owners... he came up with a shotgun one day and boasted “we’re gonna go make someone’s day” ... or some bullshit like that. What a total fucking dickbag he is.

Anywho... guys like Murphy are few and far between. It was a pleasure to work with and for him. Guys like Tommy Lemmer and John Andrews don’t amount to a pimple on Gerry’s pasty white ass. And I’m certain Gerry has no problem with me attaching his name to this post... hell, I wouldn’t be surprised if he leaves his own comment and signs off on it.

Semper Fi, good Sergeant. You’re missed everyday here.

Besides using GPS and minute details to try to play “gotcha” to Cmdr’s and Lts up at the podium, he actually calls out districts for the amount of people on IOD. Busy district like 011 and 015. How the fuck do they have any control over how many guys fight their troops and cause sometimes and usually serious injuries. That whole west side is a war zone. They should be on their knees thanking the officers that come in every day to work there. Instead, Lemmer gets them up there and berates them. WTF. How bout trying this “Cmdr, captains and Lts of 011 & 015 thanks for working your balls off every single day dealing with the shittiest of shit this country has to offer. Please go back and tell the troops we appreciate them and if there’s anything we can do for them, let us know. You’re dismissed.”

The whole point of comstat is to get a Cmdr up there and try to bust him out in front of the entire cpd command staff, their peers and whoever else might be in the building that day. To try to catch them off guard with some trickbag question. He asked a WOL the other day why his watch had less stops than tact in an area of robberies. Wondered why tact was doing all the heavy lifting with the stops. Well, you fuck nut, because tact isn’t tied to a radio and doesn’t have to answer jobs. That’s the whole point of tact. The whole point of the watch is to take care of jobs and do what they can in between. But seriously, why can’t anyone see that there is something absolutely inherently wrong with the whole comstat model. Of trying to embarrass commanders and WOL’s. Why wouldnt they just have a small private meeting consisting one district at a time where that can really sit down with each Cmdr and wols and address issues they want to address. This public berating and embarrassment is childish and does nothing but build resentment toward the brass.

I used to have a little respect for the man, until I saw what he was doing at compstat. Nit picking every little thing. Trying to play gotcha. Trying to front out and publicly embarrass supervisors. I just can’t reapect anyone that does that. No amount of money or title could lure me into a position like that. Same with inspectors. Going around all day trying to jam up coppers and searching parking lots for expired stickers. Give me a flippin break. You can keep the money, I’d rather retire with my conscience in tact.

Outstanding achievement. That said, I think Escamerit will be giving him a run for his money. In the last 1 1/2 years, 025 has had 6 Lt's leave, all citing Escamerit as the reason. In fact, the only Lt left, that was here prior to Escamerit, is soon do be forced out from age, so he frankly doesn't care. Yes, that's every Lt but one who have fled Escamerit.
I won't even get into Sgt's and PO's. Hell, half of 016 3rd watch was in 025 last year.
As of now, Escamerit is refusing to release officers who are trying to bid out, if they are trying for non-biddable units (ie - Sat or Homan), claiming manpower needs (025 hasn't had this many officers since its opening).
Sad how fast one jackass can completely destroy a place. Also sad how this has been ignored by the ivory tower.

And don't forget he was canned as the captain in 011, the day he appeared at comstat following his statue's appearance on the blog. Maybe because the laughter from the others attending compstat finally made the powers that be realize he had lost all respect of the officers in 011.
Maybe that's why he is such a prick to the current compstat attendee's, their predecessors had the audacity to laugh at him.

There are a plethora of Lemmer stories but the one I witnessed caused me to lose any respect for the man. An officer in 023 asked for time due because his aging father was in ill health and he was told he may only live another day or two. Lemmer denied the time. Thankfully the following day Lemmer was RDO. The Lieutenant who was the watch commander came into work and immediately gave the officer the time off. The officer was able to spend that evening with his father and family and his father passed away that night.

Don't be fooled by this goof psych him immediately; for he will certainly harm many people if not himself in the long run.

Furthermore, now that he is promoted, EJ, Riccio or Waller should reel him back in and advise him to STFU.

And so it came to pass, Lemmer being in possession
of acute foresight, put out to sea with Lieutenant Dan,
both ignoring the maxim of any port in a storm. Despite
horrendous weather and near-death experiences, they
both weathered the storm, returning to port with a bounty
catch of shrimp since they in effect had no competition.
It's not what you know, but who you know, and Lemmer
was indeed closer to a higher power than the majority of

Lemmer's bosses know that he is a morale killer and yet allow this type of personality to continue unchecked. This goes to the very core of Supt. Johnson's inability to manage his police administration. Guys like Lemmer become toxic to all they come into contact with. Between Johnson and Rahm's countless poor decisions made over the past years regarding the Police Department and it's operational capabilities, have led to a demoralized and unmotivated police agency.

This we know. Rahm is fleeing town because he knew early on he was going to loose the election. The coward took the easy way out. Ed Johnson knows too, he is going out the door once the new Mayor takes office. The key to the Lemmer's of the world is that they are allowed to continue to poison anything they touch. That brings us to the situation we find ourselves in today.

If Lightfoot wins she is smart enough to know she needs the police. She can't wish crime away or legislate it away either. No matter her likes or dislikes of the police. She's got about two and one half years to show she can administer to all facets of the city - including crime. After that she begins political campaigning again. She already has made some big political enemies during this run. She will make many more if she continues with her progressive changes rankling corrosive and corruptive power players. The Machine won't like it. Seems to me she'll want to keep crime down (murders, shootings, carjackings, etc) and for that you need an active and motivated police department. A new and well experienced Police Superintendent is essential. Clown's need not apply.

Lightfoot needs to step forward and communicate directly to the Rank and File. With assurances and positive demonstrated actions the police will respond to Chicago's crime problem. This fix is not that difficult to make. She's got the will for it. The Lemmer's will not last long in this type of environment.

If Tonie wins, the Lemmer's of the world and their toxicity will flourish and thoroughly embed itself department wide. At best Tonie will have the status quo, at worst she will now own the "killing fields " of Chicago.

Could it be the Tribune is finally coming around and the democratic control is lessening due to Lightfoot winning? Independent paper back again? This could be very interesting the sun times also delving into the cheaters liars and thieves the democrats and just waiting for the federal hammer to drop on many and soon?

Lori Lightfoot stated recently and being a former federal prosecutor she still has friends there,she said that soon maybe weeks at maximum many more will be indicted at city hall and county building lets watch that hammer drop. Hey Feds thank you and if you need us to do transports just call it would be a pleasure to throw their asses in the back of the wagon and take them crying to federal building!

Lori you take care of the coppers and give us a fair shake watch how we can reign in the terror network of criminals that rob,carjack,murder,shoot etc. Lori but first grab all the gold star morons and make them resign get lean and mean cut them to a third maximum and make them work after you put in all new people at the top,this fake clown show must go quickly to being respect back to CPD!

RENO, Nev. — Jordan Aaron was the president of a Carson City sushi restaurant who once ran for justice of the peace in Arizona. Antonio Pastini was the brash ex-Chicago cop who befriended a brothel mogul and spun yarns of a bare-knuckled youth in the Windy City that read like a cross between “Goodfellas” and “The Outsiders.”

They were one and the same person.

He used two names and two Social Security numbers. He kept different driver’s licenses and bank accounts under the two names, an ex-wife alleged. The ex-wife — one of four — said in court filings that he kept multiple identities to hide money, and she hinted that he had “trouble with the law.”

But he might have lived out his days simply as Tony Pastini, the garrulous retired cop, had his twin-engine Cessna not plummeted 7,800 feet on Feb. 3 into an Orange County, Calif., suburb, killing him and four people who were on the ground.

From the smoldering wreckage, investigators plucked a police badge belonging to Retired Chicago Patrolman #15599. That discovery would help unravel the threads of a life story Pastini spent three decades crafting. The 75-year-old, it turned out, had never been a Chicago cop, though it appeared he wished he had been.

“Tony … loved cops,” said Jeff Partyka, a retired Reno police sergeant who frequented a deli Pastini ran in the 1990s. “They didn’t just gravitate to his restaurant because of the cop thing. He was always friendly and respectful, and he actually did have pretty decent food.”

That is not new. Someone put him in for the same award When this stroke was captain In 11, he would come to roll call and shake your hand and thank you for being the police. he tried getting a Cr# on whoever built a reflecting pool using milk crates and a fountain. The response was a miniature statue of David outside the Captains office window with Captains bars on the dingling. Someone like that never changes.

supervisors dont read honorables....just hand them to you as if its embarrassing

When they do that, I always say, thank you for the honorable do not mention. Or, I crumble it up and thrown in the garbage right in front of them. If they don’t have the common courtesy to just summarize it, I don’t have the common courtesy to leave it in front of me 

Lol

3/15/2019 08:14:00 AM

Some supervisor took the time to write an award for you and then you throw it away because it wasn't read out loud to you?! What a cry baby! Guys like you are a big part of the problem in this dept. Everything has to be a confrontation if your ego gets bruised.

Please stop comparing Lemmer to Steve Buschemi.

One is a bonafide hero that at the height of his acting career went back to ground zero to help recover the bodies of fallen firefighters and police officers. People that he had served with not more than 10 years earlier.

The other is Lemmer.

So he would welcome a chance to actually defend himself
from a Rule 31 allegation like the man he fancies himself
to be and not seek revenge like the tenderly weeping pussy he is?

He's going to fuck with the wrong Copper having a really bad time
who has nothing to lose and get his ass meat torn from the bone.

Why have bad supervisors always been protected on this job?

Rahm is fleeing because he is on the wire worn by Solis. Everyone knows it, he's just trying to escape public embarrassment and reduce the possibility of the Feds making an example of a sitting Mayor.

3/15/2019 04:37:00 PM

I am skeptical about this. Politicians such as Rahm and Madigan always make deals that benefit themselves, but usually are too smart to take an envelope of cash. They like to make stock deals and get law firm and insurance business, not outright bribes for zoning issues. But, sometimes they slip and maybe they will be caught up in this newest federal investigation. Anyway, when Burke or Solis come to trial the tapes will be made public and we will see who said what, even those actors who were not charged.

When Lemmer came to 023 as a newly made Captain he said that he was personally appointed by Supt. Cline (thanks a lot) to advance Clines strategies to address issues of chronic crime and disorder. He then went on to micro manage every aspect of the Watch even when RDO. He had the Watch secretary (yes they still exist) fax over the line up when he was RDO so he could “approve” it. Then if the Lt. Who was the acting WC changed anything he would thereafter them with a SPAR. Just ask Lt. Stasch who when threatened with a SPAR from Lemmer wrote his response to which Lemmers face literally dropped and asked “Are you really gonna submit this?” After Stasch replied in the affirmative Lemmer blinked and the issue was dropped. As always Lemmer ran to the DC and complained that he wasn’t be obeyed on his RDO. Lemmer was very Ralp Price-esque in that he is way too educated beyond his ability to function. Where as Lemmer has a personality, albeit a unique one, Price was just a over educated, inflated ego, pissant.

Yeah there's that...

But it's something way more evil,
toxic and vicious behind why such
perpetually wretched human beings
can find a home at CPD and not only
to stay, but prosper and thrive.

We alway said that these bosses should
be rounded up and locked inside Bulk
Storage down on 39th & Michigan to
"supervise" the rats and each other.

No weapons.
No cell phones.
No outside contact.
No getting subordinate flunkies
to do their dirty work for them.

Make them fight over the one land line phone
in order to generate dueling c/r#s on each other.

10 hours a day. Six days a week.

Since they're "exempt" an' shit.

John Doty was the most bipolar, idiotic, schizoid fucked up commander I have ever seen on this job.
Yet the blog never really kicked him in the ass for some of the antics and bullshit he pulled as a commander. 006 and 021 hated him.
It took some University of Chicago cops to finally call out Doty for his idiocy. he took a hatchet to the UCPD and fired and force demoted a bunch of cops when he made deputy chief of that force.
He in turn was shown the door and disnvited to a watch party at a Hyde Park tap.
And his bff Milton Owens was also fired as well.
Good riddance to the bad trash which is John Doty.

I am a lt. in a district and I read EVERY honorable that the troops get. After all the bs that we get everyday from the citizens, the exempts and assholes everywhere it is the least we can do to say thank you for doing a job that almost no one else will. There is next to nothing left to take care of the troops so reading an honorable is a small way to say we appreciate what they do day in and day out.
Stay safe!
