Attack of the "Merit" Sergeant

It's bad enough the Department promotes the unqualified via a corrupt "merit" process where the only "merit" is being related via marriage to a former First Deputy.

But then to put the "merit" pick into a busy District to fuck with people doing an already difficult job is unforgivable.

And to have the "merit" pick be completely wrong in her actions is downright criminal:
  • Newly promoted Sgt. [SP] is now in 011, on 1st watch and what she is doing is trying to jam guys up that are doing traffic stops.

    During traffic stop if she sees that you have occupants out of the vehicle and searching the car she will step out of her car, turn her camera on and walk up to you. Then she says, while recording in the middle of you conducting the stop, in front of everyone: why do you have the occupants out of the vehicle and why are you searching the car? You have no right to do so. Claiming that what we are doing is illegal and against consent decree. Not knowing any facts what led to the stop and what led to the search in the first place. Then saying that she will have to get a CR pulled on the officers for violating the rules.

    This started happening within a 1st week of her being in 011. All of this can be verified as it was also recorded by officers BWC.
Someone might want to send Dana Stark's sister-in-law a copy of the Consent Decree. None of what she is claiming appears anywhere in the document. And also a Training Bulletin referencing Pennsylvania v Mimms and Maryland v Wilson where officers can legally order every single occupant out of the car.

Then midnights in 011 might want to look into a Hostile Work Environment EEOC complaint and name the Commander as condoning this behavior. After all, he asked for her to be assigned to 011 as a favor to Dana.

No Problem: "To be clear, and with you presumably having not reviewed the circumstances of this stop, you are ordering me at this point to release these persons? So ordered and complied."

If the boss tells you to let them loose, and wants to get it on tape, let it be so and let them own the actions of the offender after that person kills an innocent child. You were simply following orders.

Unfucking believable! She has no clue about law and procedure. Police officers absolutely can order everyone out of the car. We learned this in the first few weeks in the academy. Apparently she didn’t and also never did any police work either. She has no business being a supervisor. Maybe her first concern should be officer safety and watching their backs. The bosses need to sit her down. What the heck happened to 011????

Get one on her for incompetence and failure to promote the goals and desires of the Department. The US Supreme Court held officers can get occupants out of the car for any reason or no reason, it is not a search or a seizure.

I would pull the case in LeixusNexus but its not worth the fee.

What is the problem here.Everything that she stated to the Officers is false so advise her on Body Worn Camera and all other cameras that she should obtain whatever CR number,or generate whatever SPAR that she believes is appropriate and inform her that it is not necessary to inform the Officers that she is doing so.The process will go forward and all of the Officers can answer the false claims and when presented with the allegations.Clarify during the Stop and subsequent field interviews that the Sergeant is creating an Officer Safety issue and any further discussion should be done with the Watch Lieutenant present in the District Station.

MERIT IS THE gROOT OF ALL EVIL!!! I would love of one of the brilliant minded scholars in the mayors office or in the consent decree to take a serious look at merit. They are smarter then all of us, so maybe they explain 2 things:
1.) How is it that relatives of gold stars (and mistresses) just happen to be so much more qualified then every other person in the department for a merit pick?
2.) How is that almost every scandal and/or major lawsuit in recent history has involved a merit pick?

I can say with a 100% degree of confidence, that nothing you do in 011 will ever make one slight bite of difference. You might get some slight degree of thrill and great personal satisfaction with taking some of these shitheads off of the street, but there will always be more to replace them. I came on the job in 1968 and spent most of my career on the West side . Now reading this blog and watching the news, I can also see that it is just as bad now as it was then, with one exception; we had better bosses back then. You have only aholes now, a holes that will not back you up even if you are doing a good job. These merit clowns will burn you if they can. The anxiety and stress is not worth it. Give these progressives what they want. Just answer the calls, call for a sergeant for every job and let them make the decision. Don's chase anyone, don't make traffic stops, don't enforce quality of life issues like drinking on the street or urinating on the street, don't ask to work tact. The days of pro active policing is dead. I live in the burbs now and you don't see much of this going on out here. The cops don't even patrol the street, they just answer their calls and make DUI and traffic stops at night on the major streets. They surely don't chase anyone and out here in palos the thugs break into cars nightly.

Keep in mind, the Supreme Court decisions only give the broadest legal authority- authority which a department can, by policy, deny and discipline for. The driver can't sue you but you can still get screwed. Keep that in mind when you're pulling over shady cars and ordering everyone out hoping that someone will drop a baggie.

I don’t need a reason. My reason is fuck you that’s my reason. And it’s legal. She was a fucking mope when she worked days in 011. I couldn’t believe it when I saw this useless know nothing with a white shirt. Better off getting some kid with 2 years on the job if you have a question, because this sergeant price won’t have any answers for you. Coppers, if you’re going to be making stops, know the law and don’t let her intimidate you. Throw it right in her face because she clearly doesn’t know the law. She won’t know what to say when you give her case law as to why everything is legal. She has no response because there is none. Sergeant sherry price, what a joke this department is.

In 015 she worked a school car from almost day one and got butt hurt when Babs dumped her from the school. You can count her years of actual street experience on one hand.

It's a damn shame that Cato wasted a merit pick on this clueless excuse for a police officer.

Don’t agree with her, but you left out an important part of the supreme courts decision, the last two words, reasonable suspicion. Isn’t that what she complaining about? Why are you stopping the car? Since the consent decree things have changed and are being looked at closer for the reason for the original stop.

Michigan v. Long, 463 U.S. 1032 (1983), was a decision by the United States Supreme Court that extended Terry v. Ohio, 392 U.S. 1 (1968) to allow searches of car compartments during a stop with reasonable suspicion.

Pathetic that this sergeant, who was obviously such a great and knowledgeable copper that she was promoted simply on her merit, doesn’t know simple case law. “Why do you have the occupants out of the vehicle?” Because I want to, that’s why. I don’t need a reason. My reason is fuck you that’s my reason. And it’s legal. She was a fucking mope when she worked days in 011. I couldn’t believe it when I saw this useless know nothing with a white shirt. Better off getting some kid with 2 years on the job if you have a question, because this sergeant price won’t have any answers for you. Coppers, if you’re going to be making stops, know the law and don’t let her intimidate you. Throw it right in her face because she clearly doesn’t know the law. She won’t know what to say when you give her case law as to why everything is legal. She has no response because there is none. Sergeant sherry price, what a joke this department is.

Because I want to. That’s the reason for the stop.


n order for an officer to pull you over in the state of Illinois, the officer must have reasonable suspicion to make the stop. ... Reasonable suspicion is the standard required for a traffic stop in Illinois, though an officer needs to satisfy the higher level of probable cause for a search of a car.

Stopping cars because you want to might land you in some trouble. Recently a Deputy Sheriff curbed two male blacks for no apparent reason. When they asked why they were being stopped he replied because "I'm a police officer and I can do what I want." Video surfaced and shortly after he was fired. You might want to get with the times.

This Department has turned into a Third World shit hole where the Dictator puts all his incompetent and unqualified family and friends in positions of power. The Dictator then hires even more incompetent and unqualified relatives of his family and friends to fill the empty spots because competent and qualified people don't want anything to do with the Third World BS. All to the detriment of the competent, qualified, and hard working men and women who want to do a good job, but can't because of the Third World leadership.

Sergeant First Class Oscar B. Ware was a Green Beret serving in Bosnia. There was a Navy SEAL assigned to Oscar's team. One fine day, Oscar noticed that the SEAL was carrying a non-standard Sig pistol. He inquired about the pistol, the SEAL removed it from his holster and handed it to Oscar for his inspection. Neither of them thought to "clear" the pistol. Oscar, being an expert, pointed the SIG in the SEAL's direction and "accidentally" pulled the trigger, shooting the SEAL with his own SIG, just inches from the heart. Unbelievably, the SEAL survived. Heck, Oscar saved his life (he was a medic).
From that point on, we were ordered not to carry a round in the chamber while operating in Bosnia, "the Clinton era". We were living in town, among the Bosnian Muslim populace, with just a pistol for protection yet, because of fucking Oscar B. Fucking Ware......we were supposed to carry weapons without a round in the chamber. Awesome.
Why am I telling you this terrible tale? Because I saw Oscar a few years later, a newly minted Master Sergeant, "leading" a team in Iraq. Yep, the military has a merit system too. Even Oscar can't explain how he was promoted. You guys are not alone.

Yah no shit genius. Of course you need a reason to stop the car. But You don’t need any reason to pull them all out. You can pull all occupants out because you feel like it. And to search the car of course you need a reason. Nothing in the comment you responded to said you don’t need a reason to stop or search the car. It said you don’t need a reason to get all occupants out. So I don’t really understand your response. Either you didn’t read the comment your responded to your you’re SGT Sharon price. This is basic stuff. But thanks for clarifying you need a reason to stop a car and reasons to search. You should be a merit pick some day.

Second mope found. Your reading comprehension is as bad as your understanding of proper sentence structure. Did he say “because I want to” referencing the reason for the stop? Or was it said in the context of why he had occupants out of the vehicle? Hint: it’s the second one. And they are very different things. Try picking up a book and reading it for once in your life.

Michigan Vs Long. As you can articulate why you believe there are weapons in the vehicle, you can do a pat down of the passenger compartment that is accessible to the occupants. The safety of the officers outweighs the mild inconvenience of the passengers. So tell her to go pound sand.

Don’t agree with her, but you left out an important part of the supreme courts decision, the last two words, reasonable suspicion. Isn’t that what she complaining about? Why are you stopping the car? Since the consent decree things have changed and are being looked at closer for the reason for the original stop.

Michigan v. Long, 463 U.S. 1032 (1983), was a decision by the United States Supreme Court that extended Terry v. Ohio, 392 U.S. 1 (1968) to allow searches of car compartments during a stop with reasonable suspicion.

——-
“As long as you can articulate why you believe..” sure sounds like he was talking about reasonable suspicion to me. Why are you stopping the car? Any officer worth a shit can find a legal reason to stop ANY car. There is such an insane amount of traffic law and everyone violates something. If you can’t find a violation, you’re just a dumb cop. Then again, if you’re doing proactive stops these days; you’re also most likely a dumb cop.

All this case law talk is gonna get you in a lot of trouble. Yeah your right it is legal to stop them and have them all get out, BUT, is being right what you want to do. Or is keeping your job and not being sued what you want. Tilting at windmills in the community is pretty dumb.

Read the law above, the first sentence. It states in order to pull over a car you need reasonable suspicion. Only later it states a higher level of probable cause if you search a car. You must have missed the beginning

Interesting story. The promotions boards have an unofficial quota to enforce and promotions are based on education, awards etc. By, the way, I had a friend who served in Bosnia with the US State Department as a police advisor. He was in a mountain town and was unarmed. When I told him he was nuts to do this unarmed, he told me he was never in danger and did not need a sidearm. I still question that

Takes more than money to get promoted, even then. You had to be able to get to the guy
If it only took money you would have to be an idiot not to pay. 10K for Sgt. Best investment in the world. Make your money back in a year and every year after that. 100% return on your investment each year
