Great Rumor

Every good rumor has a bit of truth to it - a hook to get everyone believing it:
  • From a very well placed source, expect “Black Friday” to be a massive purge of bosses late in the day. The headlines will be about shopping and nobody pays attention on a Sat. The dump list is supposed to be massive and expect loads of big bosses to be busted down and banished to the opposite sides of the city from their residence. Beck will have to take the heat temporarily then just be...gone. Bank on it.
We like this rumor. It ties in with the speculation that Beck is here as a hatchet man and that Groot is finally fed up with the Department brass lying to her constantly. If she'd open her eyes to reality, she'd see that decades of "merit" promoting relatives, the connected and the pin cushions, has left the Department wholly un-functional.

Her bringing in an outsider hints at some sort of awareness, though how much no one is sure. Start looking for resignations before demotions.

I’ll believe it when I see it.

And if true, the pool of likely replacements are equally as pathetic. There’s a reason this place is sooooo fucked up - it didn’t just happen overnight. This organization is led by a bunch of out of touch imbeciles that have no business having their fingers in the pie that is the day to day operations of a big city police force.

And Grooty McPantsuit knows this. Which is why I fully expect a ton of liberal SJW civilians to start populating the upper echelon of the hierarchy once the hatchet job subsides.

Well, it’ll still be a field day for ‘teens’ to jump Red Line turnstiles, then get downtown for their daily routine of shoplifting at high-end stores, pickpocketing, purse grabbing, iPhone snatching, being loud, walking about with their dirty boxers showing, carjacking, crying racism the second that they’re followed by security guards, etc...which is ‘all new’ to our Mayor.

Emotional support dogs were ordered for the day of reckoning. The mix of breeds include black labs, Yorkshire terriers, Chiwawas, Shit Zoos, rockwilers, pit boos and gender non-specific labradoodles. Many of the office lap dogs will have their special needs attended to by employee assistance professionals. The thought of a beat car with set in stone swipe ins and 8.5 hours of police work can lead to emotional meltdowns and bedwetting episodes.

Off Topic.

Channel 5 did a story regarding the legalization of marijuana. Love the quote from
Little Leo, Cook County Public Safety Czar at the end of the story. Sounds like someone
Gunning to be the new Superintendent.

“ Chicago police told NBC 5 their officers will be concentrating on possession limits, not whether someone obtained their drugs legally. And Cook County's Schmitz said public safety will be his department's prime emphasis.

"We worry about taking care of the people," he said. "We don't want them to be impacted adversely by any law.”

Give Chollie a hatchet, a battle axe, and a Samurai sword and let him go to town on this current class of exempts. Not a brain in the whole lot worth keeping. Start with the triple merits and work your way down till you get tired. Gloria Hanna started the clown movement before it was popular by abandoning her troops in favor of the never to be satisfied agitators, saying they had a right to batter the officers under her command and throw bottles of piss at them. Don’t forget Sgt. Drive-by, and Lemmer the herpes sore that just keeps rearing his ugly Steve Buscemi looking head. Chop down compstat, where merit bosses want Obama cards more than part 1 arrests. Put Fenner in a jail cell where she belongs so we can expedite the exit of Special Ed so he doesn’t have to wait around anymore for one of his cronies to promote her sorry ass. And that’s just off the top of my head. There are so many more.

Been that way forever. The difference is that Chicago responds to about 65% - 70% of calls to police; L.A. only responds to about 20% of calls. The other 80% goes to other agencies that should be handling non-criminal types of issues. In Chicago, "you call, we haul."

Hey, I have an idea. STart promoting right down the list. The City can justify any racial result if the test is shown to be "valid." Valid means it accurately predicts success.

Wash. v. Davis, 426 U.S. 229 (1976)
• 2 black officers sued regarding promotions w/in the dept. and 2 blacks sued after being refused entry onto the Washington D.C. police, alleging racial discrimination in violation of the 5th Amendment DP clause, and Title VII. SCOTUS ruled for police, stating test of verbal skill was valid.
• SCOTUS case which reversed the appellate court which invalidated entrance test (testing verbal skill) to Washington D.C. Police Dept.
• The lower court ruled the test a constitutional violation (DP clause of the 5th amendment), but the appellate court reversed, stating Title VII standard, which required no invidious intent, was mistakenly applied to constitutional standards. Meaning: the constitution requires bad intent on the part of the employer, but Title VII requires no bad intent, just disparate impact. This was a big part of the ruling. (constitutional standard is different than the Title VII standard).
• the sole issue before the District Court, on motions by the plaintiffs for partial summary judgment and by the defendants for summary judgment, was the validity of a written personnel test to ascertain whether prospective police recruits had acquired a particular level of verbal skill. 4x as many blacks failed, as compared to whites. This test was a standard civil service test, not developed by the Wash D.C. Police Dept.
• SCOTUS ruled the test violated neither the DP clause of the 5th amendment, nor Title VII because the test was a valid predictor of job performance.
• SCOTUS awarded summary judgment to the police.

Adams v. City of Chicago, 135 F.3d 1150 (1998)
• Although 46% of those who took the Chicago Police Sgt. Test were minorities, only 12% were later eligible for promotion. P’s alleged disparate impact and a violation of Title VII.
• 1993 Sgt’s test (administered in first 3 months of 1994). 3 parts, the third being oral. There was no meritorious whatsoever. 4,700 took parts I (31.8% were black, 10.8% were Hispanic, and 56.4% were white) and II, of which 1,900 went on to part III. But after all three parts were graded, about 88% of those designated to be promoted to sergeant were white and 12% were minority.
• HOW MERIT CAME ABOUT.
• The plaintiffs filed an interlocutory appeal. However, during the pendency of this appeal, the City of Chicago initiated a Blue Ribbon Task Force to review the Department's promotion practices. By consent of the parties, argument on this appeal was delayed until the Task Force issued its report. In May 1997, the Task Force issued its report recommending that up to 30% of the Department's promotions to sergeant be made on the basis of "merit." This meant that current sergeants and lieutenants would pick 30% of the police officers that would be promoted to sergeant. However, the report also recommends that the current test continue to be used to assure that sergeants given "merit" promotions meet a minimum level of competence.
• The 1998 Sgt. Test was the first to have merit. Det’s had merit even prior to this.

Allen v. City of Chicago, 351 F.3d 306 (2003).
• Minorities sued for more merit. Plaintiff’s were those who took the 1998 Sgt’s exam, and were not selected for promotion based on merit. City won.
• There were 2 classes of minorities that sued here: group A were minorities who did not pass the written test (1998 Sgt. Test), and group B, who did pass the written test, and were thus eligible for merit, but nonetheless were not selected for merit promotion.
• The appellate court found that the Subclass B officers did not prove that increased merit promotions represented an equally valid and less discriminatory alternative, and the district court properly denied summary judgment to the officers. The Subclass A officers did not establish a genuine issue of material fact as to whether merit procedures alone represented an equally valid and less discriminatory alternative.
• BURDEN OF PROOF IN DISPARATE IMPACT CASES
o Complaining party must show disparate impact.
o Respondent must then show hiring practice (test) is job related (test is valid predictor of job performance).
o Complaining party then has the burden to show there exists an alternative test which is also valid but has less disparate racial impact that respondent fails to adopt.
• The court ruled that those who passed the written test (group B) failed to show that increased merit promotions was an equally valid promotion practice that displayed less disparate impact.

Optimistic CPD. It’s a Shame, shame, shame. I was in 019 when The Crew was working at Bel/Western. Some cool Cops on that watch. When “Cats Scratch Fever Jody” was sacked C/O Kenny hung around to tell us that “My Dads a Maine McCarthy was JUST Hired. Kenny told the R/C “Cat Scratch” differed in McCarthy in Two ways. I don’t remember one(sorry)but I do remember Kenny saying McCarthy had a sense of humor. A Sense of Humor? We paid dearly for that NYPD boss.
At a Compstat a C/O fell out and an ambulance was called to bring this guy to the hospital. This Buds for you McCarthy was said to be seen laughing his abusive lager drinking ass off.
One of his guys falls out in front of him and his Sense of Humor was on full display.
Fat Phil was Pro Cop. Cat Scratch wasn’t even a Cop and sent one of us to the joint. McCarthy dismissed The Violence on BOTH The South and West Sides. He went after tattoos causing Officer to spend a ton of money. I don’t have tattoos, but if you’re not used to them being common and accepted by Society by now, you’re out of touch.
History says the next Supt will make us pay even worse.
Maybe Arnold Jackson will invite Ted Nugent In for an Interview. At least he’ll let us use our weapons without filling out a form. Can’t feel anything other than The CPD has me in a Stranglehold nowadays.

If so, then there must also be the realization that SJW's "rules for radicals" can not and should not be allowed to
demand which rules and laws a civilized society need to follow. We are a tourist-driven city which brings not only
millions of people to visit but millions of dollars of revenue. Those who refuse to follow simple rules should not be
allowed to keep roaming free and plying their trades, be it drug dealing, retail thieving, running rampant on the
Mag Mile, or shooting up parts of the city where people are just trying to live the best life they can.

LA is really spread out and when you are following the Pacific Coast Hwy south you will pass in and out of LA more then once. There are other law enforcement agencies working in LA, the county sheriff is very large and very much involved in the city, not like the hack sheriff here in Cook County. They were doing things differently there, with most detectives working days and a response team working nights. Just a lower crime rate overall.

Highly doubtful in corrupt connected Chicago, but we will all continue to pray. We have all known that the top brass have promoted and taken care of all their friends, girlfriends of friends, family etc. Then the cycle plays over and over for decades. The merit promotions then owe favors to the brass and have to pay them back later on by promoting their friends. The only way to fix this mess is through an outsider who doesn’t owe anyone a favor and is connected to nobody. Hopefully Beck looks at the massive amounts of exempts and gets disgusted. The amount of deputy Chiefs alone is ridiculous. No reason for it. Commanders should report directly to the Chief.

I recall reading a bio on Beck and believe it said his father was a big boss on LAPD. Possibly a Deputy Chief. Maybe he rose up on his own, but one has to wonder if he got the “Chicago treatment” in LA, so maybe he won’t be making any changes at the top since he was blessed with the same thing.

Dont forget LA County works with LA City. they have about 5000 as well.

He is here for a few reasons
1. he is liberal
2. he has gone through consent decree
3. she is taking page from president and letting him audition for job
4. she needs to get past next summer for appointing new Sup so she doesnt have an issue during re-election
5. Couple of people she could palet from within need a little seasoning ie. Cato
6.She is testing water for a third outsider with public as the first two didnt prove successful
7. Change at top could filter down to bottom
8. you touched on it. could CPD work with fewer officers or sworn members.
9. Everyone else turned her down
10. The number ten reason Charlie Beck is here as interim Sup..... The mayor herself is a carpet bagger from Ohio. she doesnt care about us or our history...

While making “changes” how about converting district/area/other commander rank to the exempt rank of Captain. Bump Captains pay up a few grand, but way less than that of commander. They get to keep the company car if a district or area commander. The commander of house mouse units DO NOT need take home cars. They don’t like it stay in your civil service rank.
Cut down to 4 deputy chiefs at most.
Cut down to 2 chiefs, Patrol and Dicks.
After all of that then look at the awful peons.

Great point. LAPD has around 3000 civilian employees that handle administrative tasks, unlike CPD, which has sworn members in most
administrative positions. Look for Beck to flush out the house mice and bring in civilians to fill admin positions. Then by attrition, the sworn
ranks can be reduced to 10 - 11000. We could not operate with sworn strength any lower. LAPD is augmented with with LA County Sheriff and CHP.

Not true. LA proper is a smaller portion of the whole 3 county area out there.
If you ever go out there you'll understand how LA proper is smaller than Chicago.

Half the black and white cars even in LA proper if you look real close say "LA County Sheriff" on them. It's hard to understand.

The new sup will be a real peach I'm sure.

As she is far too gutless to do this alone, she pays the Horseman from LA big bucks to play a part. I still bet he is getting far more than just the sup's salary. I mean why bother, especially at his age. He has nothing better to do or she made him a deal he couldn't refuse? Or maybe it's just tremendous ego. Still bet there is more money for Horseenstein from Lori's money tree. I don't trust her for a second. I doubt all the female black and brown folks will magically be losing their cushy merit spots. The Groot loves them types, that's her voting base, she still hopes. She dosen't care about incompetence if the gender and race are right. Rather she cares about her agenda and herself.

Not so...

Even with the deliberate diminishment of hiring standards
and curtailment of live, hands-on, reality-based training,
there's STILL more intelligence, common sense and savvy
pushing a beat car than in the supervisory and "executive"
echelons...

Remember...

The general public and politicians have expressed open disdain
for "smart and educated" Policemen for fear that they would be
too hard to control and too inclined to think for themselves.

They think education and intellect makes for "Uppity" Cops...

"Uppity" Cops aren't a good fit in America's large, democrat-
controlled urban centers.

Didn't that old foolish Leroy Martin say that there was no room
on CPD for "free thinkers" or some similar such?

ALL. The bosses think that way.

They're uneasy and very much threatened by any show
of integrity, competency and even decency by Blue Shirts.

Which is why so many of them go out of their way
to be an affliction TO the Blue Shirts.

Besides...

Some unclouted, unbeholden, "Uppity" Cops might fuck around
and ascend to policy making positions and fuck things up
for elected officialdom.

"What happened to 'our guy' who was supposed to
watch our back door for us?"

Or the greatest fear?

Those "Uppity Cops" might come after THEM...

Remember when Jody Weiss came and wiped the entire exempt rank out? Anyone associated with cline got dumped so they all retired. That certainly didn't change anything for the better for the department nor the citizens of chicago. So here we go again. An outsider will come in to wipe the slate clean. Most of us know this won't matter in the long run.

Nothing will ever change for the ranks below sergeant until society changes and shows responsibility for themselves and respect for the police. Police gave up and will not go the extra mile for any supervisor, so put in whoever you want Groot. Police don't want awards, they want to be appreciated and thanked and supported by their supervisors and by society. Neither of which will ever happen again in this world.

To those of you extolling Noel Sanchez and predicting his return to the command staff, I'm afraid you are being victimized by rumors. I too appreciate his virtues and would welcome his return to a leadership position within the department. However, the following facts do not support the rumors' premiss.
His wife is retiring within a weeks time.
His family is grown.
He has made repeated trips to the southwest (Texas) acquiring retirement property.
Finally, he's maxed out and health care eligible.
Why on earth would he remain on the job?

I am in complete agreement that Sanchez is a gentleman and does a good job as a boss. However, YES he is merit. 01Oct2010 sponsored by James O'Grady. Let's face it, if you make it by rank score and are white, you have hit the end of your career. Nearly all of the exempt staff is merit. Politics as usual. A prime example, current lts. list. 601 people "passed." Number 597 was promoted meritoriously in the 1st group. I will guess that that person's score was the lowest needed to pass. Number 597 is now a Commander. There is no way the merit process is even remotely close to legitimate. Friends and politic hacks taken care of. Nothing more.

9 1/2 did his best to get rid of all those (white guys) who had institutional knowledge of how to make this department
run, hoping to appease the community by installing people of color and thereby retain his own little fiefdom here.
From which I assume he could then catapult himself to Senator or better........
Didn't work......
So now we have the Brain Trust up there at the helm of CPD, who can't make a decision, can't write up a decent Department
Order, puts out changes of schedules/event times THE DAY BEFORE, and then has to rescind these badly written orders
time and time again. Not to mention their rag-tag appearance does not command respect!
So let's wait to see what magic Beck has to offer. In LA, they didn't have DUDE, INC running the city.........

This comment gets me everytime!!! For Christ’s sake just because you aren’t merit doesn’t mean you haven’t been given the questions to the dam test !!! People don’t you remember how they made their friends before merit was here??? Do you remember “notify the watch commander “???? Jesus next thing you will tell me is NF isn’t merit so she’s qualified lol

Although it remains true that an inordinate percentage of the CPD gold stars are either assholes or not competent enough to justify their meteoric rise the blanket statement that all of them are useless rings as false as an anonymous caller claiming that 20 people are outside assaulting some poor shlep and they all have guns and are selling dope.

Half the bosses are being assholes because they want to justify their existence and at some point took someone to task on some point or another. Being the trained observer that I am I find it funny that noone can be invoked here and remain free of fault. Everyone is slammed in some way. Policing is not what it was and never will be ever again, for good or bad.

Get used to it. Just hope that the next wave of exempts have the experience and empathy to allow them to look at situations from a blue shirt's vantage point. That is all you can hope for. Sorry but noone is going to dazzle you with their awesomeness and all bosses are going to make decisions that someone is going to dislike.

Don’t worry because there is talk that Beck will be staying on for some time. The Mayor is trying to see how to keep him on as Director of Public Safety. He will be in charge of CPD, CFD & OEMC.

If all the current bosses are such morons, and the pool of applicants to be new bosses is also full of morons, what are you saying about the department, really? It sounds like you’re saying every cop in Chicago is a moron."

11/14/2019 07:03:00 PM

If all the top bosses are not such morons then why didn't Groot appoint one as the interim sup? But the top brass seem to all be even more useless and dense than Jughead for she has to spend more money to bring in a temp from Commiefornia. That says a lot right there about the leaders. They seem to be good at standing around like bowling pins behind fathead Ed but not much good for anything else. Grossly overpaid and promoted, and how did they rise to such spots? Talent so great they picked Jughead to be sup. Surely there are equally stupid goofs that could be interim lap dog until Toad finds the right nut for the job. Pillows West or even Ms. Bangles. Yet another star in the department.

I would also remind you of the Lie-tenent test and how the powers that be found nothing at all wrong. Everyone that cheated, still wins. The Sgt that chased down and shot that kid, a slap on the wrist punishment. Yep, great bosses for sure. Values, integrity, professionalism..ya right. And Wheezie even has the nerve to file a suit because she hasn't been promoted again? Not fast enough for her liking. Talk about arrogance. But after all she is such a brain she should be running the damn place.

What percentage of the pool of applicants are merit, what percent have other clout they can use {race, gender, know the right people}, what percent are just average people that study hard and know their stuff? There are smart officers that just don't apply because hey look what's running the place, the rigged Chicago Way lives on. Employment apathy. Chicago isn't the only screwed up department ruined by liberal bs, affirmative action quotas and favors for the right people. This train has been barreling down the tracks along time, faster and faster it comes as the country continues it's full upside down turn. I can't think of anyplace in the USA where I'd want to be a cop today. Remember to use the right pronouns kids, don't want to upset anyone in a favored class.

You are not from here are you? You might be right if this city was a normal, sane place without democRATS, but this is Chicago. She will not eliminate even one of those three positions. Pull out the Chicago Government org chart and add a line between the mayor and the cpd soup, cfd commish and the oemc director. On that line write director of pub safety. Also, don't erase jack. There you go. Fini. That is how things work in this town.

Where did you hear that one? I can't see that happening unless he was paid close to a 1/2 mill or so, had an office make over like Grooty, his own working urinal (in Gold of course), a Lexus GX 460 Luxury as a take home car and a horse named Jughead that he promises not to sell to LA. The other folks wouldn't like it one bit either and it be racist as he is an old wrinkly white man. That won't please de people. Nope, Groot wants someone of color and female long term.

firefighters do work very hard , most calls are for medical assistance
I 'd recommend 8 hour shifts , it would be safer , more efficient if firefighters could respond within seconds to a fire alarm instead of getting woken up from a sound sleep , getting dressed .
let's put our firefighters safety first instead of trying to save money with the 24 hour shifts.
it's not fair to them or their family .
8 hour shifts is the way to go , assign them by seniority to steady days off .
