Did Shit Just Get Real-er?

We've heard whispers about this a few times. Did someone wise up?
  • SCC you must hear this.

    The lesser of Johnson’s problems is his DUI. Supposedly the real investigation by the IG is on his close relationship with Chicago Uniform Company on Roosevelt and now his 01JAN20 retirement date is in jeopardy.

    Rumor is the other uniform stores contacted the IG when Johnson received freebies from C.U.C. [Their] concern is Johnson approved uniform items that C.U.C. had pre-made and stockpiled such as pink flag patches and an exempt raincoat and a rainbow hat for the Pride parade. Johnson approved the items without the required pre-notification to the stores which means no other store had time to make them before breast cancer awareness or the pride parade, giving C.U.C. a complete monopoly.

    If this all started with a free very expensive raincoat which Johnson then required all exempts to purchase, this is turning into something way bigger than his drinking problem. Id like to see all the receipts from everything he got from C.U.C. for himself or his relatives. I think the IG does too.
The Uniform stores have always had one scam or another going. The reason they kept quiet about it was because all shared semi-equally in the spoils. If someone (or many someones) got shut out of some lucrative markets, there are going to be some irritated people more than willing to talk.

No matter what happens to Johnson on this job, when he finally leaves the job there will be no albatross around his neck, he’ll land on his feet running. All the brass have a horseshoe up their respective asses.

I retired nine years ago, am I missing something here. What is an exempt rain coat and how does it differ from everybody else. I still have my original, nobody wanted it. Maybe I will use it when I paint the house. And what the hell is a rainbow hat for the pride parade. Did they replace the blue & white(or gold) checkerboard band with the colors of the rainbow. This is starting to sound like that weird TV show, Project Runway.

The IG buried the Lt exam scam at the request of Rahm, after Rahm tricked Johnson into taking the Sup position.
Rahm used the Lt exam scam as blackmail for Johnson to do his biding. But, now, the IG is gonna do a legit investigation? Yeah, okay

Came on in the early 1980s.

Every time just before the uniform checks were to be issued, the Department came up with a new required or altered item. If you were lucky only about 3/4s of the uniform allowance would be needed.

The FOP contract with the 'First Issue ' clause put a stop to that.

This is no secret on the 5th floor. Johnson is willing to sell his soul for a few trinkets from "my guy Ben". Pink flag patches and rainbow hats both got certified with no warning and when all the others stores complained Johnson just told them it was done at the last minute "for a good cause." The other stores realized the cause wasn't for charity unless the Johnson family is a charity and now Joe Fergussen is playing catch up. The race should be on to serve him so he can't retire with credentials like how he did to so many.

I know for sure one person at headquarters with ethics who was upset when he forced the pride hats through. All the IG has to do is search the AMC for the pride hats I think it was only 2 days before pride parade and the other stores started calling HQ asking how it happened Chicago uniform had them already printed and they only had 48 hours to get them made. And everyone was supposed to say it was for charity or something but it was obviously planned.

Everything in Chicago is corrupt to its very DNA that flows throughout the core of this city and the Departments. This includes the imp on 5 at the seat of corruption, cronyism and Democratic Socialism. Literally there is nothing to be proud of in city's institutionalized corruptive style government. Fat boy and Hennessy guzzling Special Ed brings yet another stain on the City and another demonstration of corruption and shame at the top of the Police Department. This idiot can't leave soon enough. FOP was right - No Confidence Vote.

Remember he was selected to stay as Superintendent by the Groot. Another poor decision among many by Lightfoot. She won the run off with 33% of the vote. That should tell you something . Maybe we should take a No Confidence vote on the dummy on the 5th floor at City Hall.

Well it turns out that they are tracking every pointing incident and force review unit is going in and reviewing BWC and reports for every incident. So u point your weapon, you are going to be scrutinized every which way they can and if they find something on one of the body cams that doesn’t match up... watch out. If u don’t believe me, go into clearnet and look at the new tab. Every pointing incident is in there and they’re investigating them just like TRR’s.

OT: heard that Lt and Sgt unions are filing grievances against the new area north deputy chief. Apparently they aren’t abiding to the contracts which states that employees need to be denied time due at least 3 days prior to the day off requested. Area north is not getting back to the districts that request replacements sometimes at all and many times not till the day before letting them know if they have replacement Lts or sgts. This is not giving the districts the ample 3 days to deny day off requests and leaving things chaotic and unknown till the last minute. Things were not this messed up under the former regime. Is it the new deputy or his staff that are inept and don’t like following the contract?

See they would have to actually ban the store from any city business.

And yes he will still receive

the ability to carry a weapon in any state

keep in mind the city stripped an officer for buying a uniform for a civilian to wear as a Halloween costume at the same store. Yet ED get to wobble off scott free with a bribe that actually has to do with his being the police.

kinda reminds you of his FRIENDs that steal social security checks from dead mom.

And yet his exempts all cheated at HQ and iAD and the IG could not come up with ANY evidence.

What the hell was it, a Burberry raincoat?
Harry Truman was a haberdasher. (Millenials, that means
he ran a small clothing store.) Of all the things to go down
on, he takes a flyer on a raincoat. It's not really the product
in question here. That's only a means to an end. It's hard to
believe that the coat was the only incentive. That family trip
to London, airfare, lodging, meals, NFL tickets---that had to
cost a bundle. But Soap Opera it is. Were the tickets free,
courtesy of the Bears? I can still remember photos of Eddie
behind the scenes at Wrigley during the World Series. This
guy always goes first class. It all adds up. A raincoat here,
expensive tickets there. Pretty soon you're talking real money.
That trip to London really did change his life. Do you think he
maybe felt a little guilt and realized that everyday working
people just can't afford to live like that?

Under the approach, the city would no longer guarantee admission to a particular school to every student who lives in its zone. Instead, once the school is full, students who seek to enroll would be offered choices of other nearby schools.

Just how much can one super sharp merit exempt expect to pilfer from a patch or just how low can one go to pad that unaccounted income.
They are NOT merit promoting the best.
Wouldn’t be the first time one of Rahm’s top pick appointments gets caught up in malfeasance.

I had to replace worn flag patches once at $5 per shirt.
If the first issue is free, drop $5 to either sew on a pinkie for the period or buy a couple new shirts/garments?
Seems they thought (plotted) of another way to get everyone to spend that allowance.

The rainbow hat thing is interesting. Who has the prototype?
What kind of hat do we have to get for Indigenous Peoples Day?

Jugghead SpecialEd is a dunce that should be wearing the customary chapeau.

HQ and the uniform stores are all in cahoots. “Hiring freeze” announced followed by admin messages about no back molle, pride hat, inspectors out looking for uniform violations and this new bosses raincoat. These stores have been raking in the cash with the mass hiring and shitty quality over the past 4 years.

I retired nine years ago, am I missing something here. What is an exempt rain coat and how does it differ from everybody else. I still have my original, nobody wanted it. Maybe I will use it when I paint the house. And what the hell is a rainbow hat for the pride parade. Did they replace the blue & white(or gold) checkerboard band with the colors of the rainbow. This is starting to sound like that weird TV show, Project Runway.

11/26/2019 12:42:00 AM

Thanks for your service. Just be happy you got out of this shit show we have now. For the pride parade, the powers that be allowed a rainbow checkerboard in place of the regular checkerboard and they made our CPD uniform patch pink for breast cancer awareness month in October. All snowflake, feel good, social justice warrior, virtue signaling, garbage CAPS drivel.

Apparently all other diseases and cancers (that have way higher mortality rates than breast cancer) don’t amount to squat because the Superintendent’s wife doesn’t think so.

Johnson approved the pride hat on June 25th. All uniform stores received notification the same day, giving us 3 business days to obtain specs, work with our vendor, get them printed, shipped and on our shelves for the parade on the 30th. But CUC had a full inventory. Johnson approved the pink flag patch and required anyone wanting to wear the pink CPD patch to wear both on 30SEP19, the day before breast cancer awareness month. Same issue for us with vendors but somehow Johnson and his friends all got them from CUC. How did CUC get the heads up? The raincoat is what, $500? And no warning for us but required of all exempts. I want to know where and when Johnson got his raincoat, patches and hats. He must have receipts if it’s all legit.

The new raincoat that everyone is referring to is like a trench coat that Lt's and above can wear over their blouse during summer Class A uniform standards. The long wool coat is worn over their blue for winter Class A. They all still wear the same rain gear as everyone else does with Class B or C street uniforms.

Considering there is a slow-moving corruption investigation being pursued by the U.S. Attorney in the NDIL, perhaps this may be Johnson's unlucky year. The feds occasionally indict people for bribery for low dollar items like sporting event tickets and dinners. Since he's a high-profile figure, he may actually have something to worry about. If this is true, and Ferguson makes a referral to the USAO, things could get interesting. Can Johnson trust the uniform store owners will cover for him when facing a federal grand jury? Getting indicted for a public corruption charge carries the real possibility of prison. Imagine what putrid juices could flow from squeezing a corrupt shit bag, and who he'd be willing to throw under the federal bus to knock off a year in the BOP. We can only hope...but we all know how these things die on the vine.
