Interesting Choice of Words

Groot pretty much put 009 on notice that shit is about to hit the fan, she also hinted at a rocky waters in Special Ed's future:
  • Under repeated questioning, the mayor hinted strongly at some kind of a smoking gun that made the facts she already knew infinitely worse.

    Noting that Ferguson’s investigation “as to others” involved remains ongoing, the mayor added: “While at some point, the inspector general’s report may become public and those details may be revealed, I don’t think it’s appropriate or fair to Mr. Johnson’s wife or children to do so at this time,” she said.
A few points:
  • "as to others"
That ought to have a bunch of people worried. Remember, she ran on destroying the so-called "code of silence." A few scalps would go a long way to fulfilling that in the eyes of her base.
  • "...the [IG]'s report may become public..."
This could have two meanings. First, telling the media and any other interested party to pound rocks as to FOIA requests and second, as a "Shut up and go away" to Special Ed and anyone else she wants gone.
  • "...appropriate or fair to [Special Ed]'s wife or children..."
Wow. She pretty much said right there Special Ed was banging someone else.This lends a lot of credence to what we heard about his squeeze being the one who called 911 that night. Now whether the caller did it out of concern or out of not being on the most recent promotional list remains a subject of considerable speculation. Anyone want to bet the over/under on divorce papers being served on Special Ed?

Maybe Groot heard about all of those exempts using the Academy as some sort of a grooming center for recruits willing to meet up at that no-tell-motel over at the south end of 012? It's currently the worst kept secret in the Department, so maybe Groot finally caught on?

Beck has his work cut out for him.

Catching on and giving a shit are two distinct items. Never the twain shall meet.

Groot will have the same problem when the story of her bodyguard and a few others including Groot comes to light. Be careful what you say Groot there are recordings that can back up these events. You may be right behind Ed and if you don't think the someone will give the media the proof your nuts.

Out at 35th street
The word is that the IG interviewed the women in the Tahoe at the time of the cell call!

And it was not the ex superintendents bride! Wow
They also had plenty of video from the place he was eating out at!
Not a lot of food.
But plenty of time drinking liquids! With this female!

Get the picture?
That is what Lightfoot is referring too! And not wanting to have family read about it in news paper!

He got caught with his Johnson in his hand!
And lied all up and down about it

Remember if it were you.
You would have been stripped and waiting for termination papers!

But here we are playing hide and seek with the Johnson

I can’t wait to leave in February....this place makes me sick.

I don't know about anyone else, but I for one think that it's hilarious that the Supernintendo was brought down by a body cam. In the name of transparency, after the Laquan McDonald shooting, the leftist masses demanded we wear body cams. Ironic how those same body cams led to the downfall of an African American Superintendent for boozing and driving around skirt chasing. Oh well. You got what you wanted. Everything's all legit now. No special favors for anyone.

Van Dyke is one of the most pivotal people in Chicago history. He caused the downfall of a Mayor and the firing of two top cops.

The traffic stop in 009 is not what Groot is talking about. The investigation will expose the ghost payroll maintained by Eddie in headquarters, his windfall from his cozy relationship with Chicago Uniform Company, and his misuse of department resources to benefit his friends. This whole thing stopped being about a DUI the moment the caller was interviewed. Hell hath no fury like a sidepiece who was passed over for a merit sergeant spot. Ironically, the only good merit decision Eddie ever made resulted in his dismissal.

If anyone is fucked on scene it's the Lieutenant if it's true he ordered everyone to shut off their cameras. Great job bonehead. You should have been more scared of being involved in a cover up then what Ed would have done to you. You're a Lt on midnights dipshit. What else could they do to you???

Same goes for the dumb comments saying that the officers would have been fucked if they dui'd fat Ed. How so? If anything it would be like getting career life insurance. If you get fucked with then hire lawyers because you are being harassed for not participating in a cover up. Hold a press conference, choke out some crocodile tears, and say you wouldn't have been able to live with yourself if you let Ed drive off, and he crashed into a car, and killed a bunch BLM supporters.

Instead of the ghetto lottery, it would be like playing and winning the corrupt white shirt lottery.

I just heard about a Currency Exchange robbery at North Bridge, robber wearing a CPD uniform, surgical mask, etc. CPD needs to be on the lookout for those uniforms showing up at donations at rummage sales. I was at a sale 2 years ago at St. Priscilla and there were 2 uniforms donated hanging on the rack. I took them over to the cashiers and told them they shouldn't be on the rack. So pay attention to those suits getting out into the general public through estate sales & thrifts. I don't know how a cashier can believe someone wearing a surgical mask and CPD is official. (Inside job?)

Prior to making personnel decisions. This failed experiment will result in a fat payday for Charlie and a bunch of stories about what a dysfunctional organization CPD is.



I joined LAPD after an enlistment in the corps, left for family reasons, came back and worked at county for a few years and went thru cpd hiring process. Jumped ship from anything related to Illinois and took a job with a PD In Texas. lots of good guys on the job but CPD has been a laughing stock and example of what not to do for a long time now. Unless you’re retiring in less than 10, find another department or job all together and save yourself.

Wondering if this ugly exit was the Mayors plan the whole time....there is no way she was presented the "evidence" just last week. Is she trying to pretend she waited for the IG report--to avoid falling in the same trap as the Laquan video viewers (not that any of the exempts (inc Eddie) were harmed by seeing the tape, deeming it problematic and doing nothing)
She would be foolhardy to not see the proof ASAP: disregard- foolish things are the forte of Chgo politicians, esp if self serving and headline worthy

His pension is going to be around $186,000 per year. He's not in the greatest of health so how much foolin' around can he do. The surviving spouse gets 50% of that when the time comes. Assuming that they are legally married, if she divorces him she gets nothing. If they are not legally married, I predict she forgives him and they tie the knot. If they are married she would be a fool to divorce him.

There's so much corruption and incompetence in this city it's hard to tell up from down anymore. What looks like house-cleaning and straight-shooting by the mayor is probably just a distraction from an even bigger scandal unknown to us. One thing's for sure...Mayor Lori, Kim Foxx and Dude Inc are not yet done collecting scalps...or badges.

The OIG will use one person to spill the beans and tell the truth so they can go after everyone else.

Yes, the police culture is bankrupt. It always has been under intense city hall influence, but got much worse in the early 90's under Daley and has kept going downhill. I think most of the scandals and problems are directly related to the people who are protected and promoted by patronage, cronyism and nepotism. I seems that the majority of the command staff are political promotees under the merit system and have never passed a competitive exam based on job knowledge. The last lieutenant exam that was alleged to have been rigged by a high ranking commander of the department and in which the current wife of Johnson was promoted has never been fully aired out and should be made public. The rank and file have no confidence in that investigation by the inspector general

There is no due process for the exempt rank. Eddie was not fired from the police department, he still can revert back to lieutenant. He was just demoted as superintendent. Although, it has always been a question about your status when you are promoted. In effect, you do resign from your past rank when you take a new rank.

Uh-Oh, Wonder if she's going to go after the Sgt, the Lt and the Cmdr who all ended up responding to Ed's "medication" mishap. Sure sounds like it. Merit-Merit-Cmdr might end up with one of the shortest exempt careers in history. Of course he had to take care of Ed considering he made it all that way without ever passing a promotional exam.

I’m no fan of JeRomeo, but it seems you’re not prepared for any promotional exams yourself. There is an order for incidents like this. JeRomeo’s duties in this situation are clearly spelled out. If you can find the order and figure it out maybe you won’t need a merit bump yourself.

“Sources told the Chicago Tribune that the city inspector general’s office, which has been investigating the October incident, obtained video footage showing Johnson drinking for a few hours on the evening of Oct. 16 with a woman who was not his wife at the Ceres Cafe, a popular restaurant and bar at the Chicago Board of Trade building.

“Later that night, when officers responded to a 911 call near Johnson’s home in the Bridgeport neighborhood about 12:30 a.m. Oct. 17, Johnson rolled down the window on his police vehicle partway, flashed his superintendent’s badge and drove off, sources said.”

I just heard about a Currency Exchange robbery at North Bridge, robber wearing a CPD uniform, surgical mask, etc. CPD needs to be on the lookout for those uniforms showing up at donations at rummage sales. I was at a sale 2 years ago at St. Priscilla and there were 2 uniforms donated hanging on the rack. I took them over to the cashiers and told them they shouldn't be on the rack. So pay attention to those suits getting out into the general public through estate sales & thrifts. I don't know how a cashier can believe someone wearing a surgical mask and CPD is official.

GrootLoafer is selectively leaking bits and pieces?
This SpecialEd shitball is going to run downhill.

Heard on the news radio that “the (assigned) officer asked for ID from Jugghead...then let him drive away...” .
No mention of upper supervision.
GrootLoafer is looking for a complete top to bottom example of her ire for the police in general. If the PO notified the supervisor as required, you think they should be ok, provided they crossed their t’s and dotted their i’s by the book and not by advice from some higher up author.
But it’s always the lowly flunky to get the shaft first.

I could care less where SpecialEd tramps around after hours, but he got rolled and played. If it were Hollywood I’d say someone was Weinsteining. This should be obvious that he has and was always doling out special merit promotion favor for favors.
What other lies were made about the rest of Jugg’s executive decisions?
Christmas wish:
Recall ALL SpecialEd Merit promotions.

Venting: Some posters should look into a mirror. For the grace of God how many times has a off duty Police Officers had a few, was stopped, and was given professional curtesy by the Police? How many Police Officers had a few too many and were driven home by the Police? How many Police Officers (male and female) has stopped with someone, not his/her wife or husband for a few drinks? The man got caught and lied. She had no choice. Remember President Trump firing former General Michael Flynn because he lied to Vice President Pence? To the people who say she should have just let him retire and go off in retirement don't know LL. The facts are going to come out in the wash sooner or later . Who I REALLY FEEL SORRY FOR ARE THE OFFICERS INVLOLVED IN THE STOP. They tried to help him and now they are going to get fucked big time. If anyone thinks that she is going to let them slid you are sadly mistaken. This incident fits her holier than thou attitude of a reformer. When she was the Administrator in Charge of OPS, one of her complaints in some cases was," I know they are guilty but can not prove it because of fellow Officers covering for each other and not being truthful. As fact as people complaining about Ed promoting his friends are you going to tell me that he was the first Superintendent to promote his friends? Are you going to tell me that other Superintendents only promoted competent people? I was on the job 33 years and I can count at lest a couple of dozen of the most incompetent supervisors and exempts myself. Prior to Ed, people also got promoted because of the friendship, race, sex, political affiliations, etc. One last issue. There has been many complaints regarding the last Lieutenants exams. Fergusson has already come out with a report stating that he did not find any misconduct in the administration of that exam. Everyone knows his findings were bullshit and was political. Unless someone comes forward and says," I got help with the exam, I got the questions prior to the exam NOTHING IS GOING TO HAPPEN. Again, ask yourself how many people got help in the 60's,70s, 80's and 90's with promotional exams? The last legitimate test that was giving was the Detectives Exam in the 1970's were you found out your sore as soon as you walked out of the room. Maybe, just maybe, mayor Lorie can be reform to the testing procedures. If she doesn't than she a fraud just like the rest of them.

ALL CPD Officers initially spend over 5k on their uniforms. Some officers become political puns and are fired unjustifiably. For doing their jobs the way it was thought to them. What would you do if you were shit-canned? Shred 5k worth of clothing? Probably not, you'd sell those uniforms to offset the losses. We're just trying not survive and not get super-F****d by the department.

The "Muhdik" mentality of Dude Inc. has found a
fertile breeding ground (pun intended) at CPD.

It has only served to hasten the slide
to organizational rot, pervasive mission creep
and the total surrender of Policing and any notion of
Public Order, Public Peace and Public Safety in Chicago

The political/government, clerical, media and corporate
powers that be have waged open warfare against The Police
and the ideal of Policing, in pursuit of the "Police Are
The Cause of All That Ails Chicago" narrative.

Hopefully, the time comes where all the people (and folkses)
responsible for this false narrative, have that narrative
swap ends and tear the skin from THEIR asses and there are
no Police left standing to address that.

Remember their hatred for you and what you represent...

Give THEM nothing to hurt you, your families
and your friends with...

Dry, flavorless, strictly-by-the-numbers
totally reactive/after-the-fact/do the clean-up
after shit happens/drop glorious CYA paper
-Policing they've been beating you across your backs for.

Stop jumping out on Dude.
Leave "tha' communerty" the fuck alone.
Let them work out their angst on each other.

City Hal, HQ, the aclu/#blm and the media
are LOUDLY and VIVIDLY telling you to
leave "THEM" the fuck alone or else YOU
WILL be looking at job loss, punitive damages,
imprisonment and utter financial ruin.

Destroying Coppers lives IS the only thing
on THEIR menu...

"You see, it's because of Jon Burge..."

And young hard-heads are running around
like the proverbial dogs chasing cars.

...And when these slick-sleeve superstars
catch the car in the worst way?

"WAH! This is BULLSHIT! I'm a producer
and I'm the one getting administratively/
civilly FUCKED in the ass? BOSS! SAVE ME!"

"Huh? Who are you?"

No longer are true, dyed-in-the-wool POLICEMEN
drawn to Police Executive positions.

Especially in America's large, democrat/progressive
controlled urban centers...

Nothing on the horizon but a succession of "highly educated"
tone-deaf progressive pin-heads from academia who are cynical
lick-hitters who specialize in "theory" and "turning around
troubled departments in compliance with consent decrees."

Shake any tree in America's large, democrat/progressive
controlled urban center and a BUNCH of these worthless
M/Fers will come cascading down like the malignant,
rotten and vile fruit they are.

Retired and out of state, so the last three or four superintendents have not really affected me when made to fall on the sword wielded by the mayor, but, special Ed did end up getting a raw deal. He got drafted by that weasel of mayor rahm and pretty much was cornered into taking the job. Did you ever get stuck working the lockup? Pretty much the same scenario.
I'm not justifying any of his departmental sins but they end up going hand in hand with that job no matter what. You are a puppet and your strings get pulled, just like his are now being pulled by groot. What she did to the guy by firing him at the time she did, and the language used, were all for her political gain. She is evil and her tactics and police hatred surpass any of special Ed's transgressions.
He did it to himself but she fucked with his family, and that should never happen in this thing of ours, regardless of by whom it's being done.
Damaged as he was for the spot he got sucked into, he should have been allowed to retire. She could then have painted him however she wanted, after the fact, and still made her political brownie points. She is EVIL!
Watch your partners back, along with your own, and do nothing for this department.

Thanks to some of our regular customers who recently put us on the map,

The No Tell Motel is pleased to announce...

Renovations are underway and we will soon be unveiling...

The Superintendent Suite.....

Furnished with all the amenities a powerful city official could ask for, like.....

An office area, for role play enjoyment...

Heart shaped, rotating and vibrating bed...

Fully stocked bar with Hennessy and Crystal....

Bowls stocked with Viagra, for when you want the fun to last, or have a repeat.....

Want to share some time with that special someone on your security detail, going over promotional material?

No need to ditch the entire detail...

The Superintendent Suite comes with a security detail hangout room down the hall....

With free wi-fi and a big screen TV.

The Superintendent Suite can be rented hourly and nightly. We can also accommodate lengthy stays for occasions when “your out of town on business” wink wink.

Or when you’re transitioning from your old house, which has now become her house.

Our motto here at the No Tell Motel is: It’s your little secret.

And just remember, if you get busted, We Didn’t Tell....

--- Couldn't agree more! Cops get fired for genuinely doing their jobs, but the community they provide the most service for has provided video presentations on Youtube, BWC, and the media, which betrays the narrative the left has been selling for years.

Lori Lightweight claims to be a proponent of the "you lie, you die" rule. And yet she was almost disbarred for being less than candid with a judge. Here is an excerpt from a Tribune article:

"Nearly 20 years ago, she was formally reprimanded for 'professional misconduct' by an esteemed federal appeals judge who found that she had misled another judge in a botched extradition case.

"Law professors say a reprimand from federal appeals judges is rare and potentially damaging. 'Courts really care deeply about candor to the court, and here is a situation in which her fundamental flaw was not being completely candid to the court,' said Scott Cummings, a UCLA law professor who teaches legal ethics."

mdr.Jerome is one of the few who wasnt all merit you knuckle head. Very well liked and respected. The guy works too much and takes the job too seriously for my taste, but he has our backs. Actually gets out on the street and isn't out of touch. Hard to find that these days. Bonus points because he cant stand Fenner!

I am speaking as a retired lieutenant. Long retired, by the way. I know that I am old school and always had the back of cops, and tried to help them if they were caught up in something. If I was on the scene of the superintendent, I would have let him go on his way, or had someone drive him home. I know that with cameras these days some things are not possible, but if we don't take care of each other then what? No one else cares about us or will help us. Everyone I know has over indulged a few times. I have given civilians a pass and I certainly would do that for a fellow officer. Does not matter if he is the super. Let Johnson retire with some dignity.

“Sources told the Chicago Tribune that the city inspector general’s office, which has been investigating the October incident, obtained video footage showing Johnson drinking for a few hours on the evening of Oct. 16 with a woman who was not his wife at the Ceres Cafe, a popular restaurant and bar at the Chicago Board of Trade building.

“Later that night, when officers responded to a 911 call near Johnson’s home in the Bridgeport neighborhood about 12:30 a.m. Oct. 17, Johnson rolled down the window on his police vehicle partway, flashed his superintendent’s badge and drove off, sources said.”

Happy to help,

Eddie Johnson never wanted to be superintendent, Eddie was appointed by Rahm after Rahm screwed McCarthy. Eddie Johnson should of retired when Rahm left the mayor's office.

In the good ol’ days of policing this “incident” would have never got this far. We would have just driven him home that’s it that’s all.

It’s the new policing that caused his downfall. (Of course he’s to blame for putting himself in his situation) but it could have, should have been handled differently.

If specialEd truly submitted retirement papers on 02 DEC 19 with an effective date of 03 JAN 20, that means he will likely be on the medical for the month of December. Regardless of how he is carried, whether it be medical or vacation or whatever, he will have to be on the A& A's somewhere for that time span. They might not be too hard to find. If he is hanging around on paper for the month of December, I am guessing he will be carried as a 9173 in 111.

I disagree. I think that she is spiteful and sly like her Foxx friend. She did it to just embarrass him after she set him up to be a pawn in her game to go places. She knew everything when she “let” him resign gracefully and stay for the rest of the year, so she could fire and ruin him this week. She is a b——. I don’t like him, and I think that he should have been fired immediately, but I am appalled by her behavior in this - and all - situations.

Cara Smith a Tom Dart patronage hire with Madigan ties gets appointed to the bench by Anne Burke (Ed Wife) and 6 months later gives up the seat. What is up with that?

Cara Smith didn't want to put up with all the political griping coming from the Black Caucus, or is it Black Cauc-I?

Jerome was a merit Lt. He was stupid enough to walk into an armed robbery when visiting his arab store and milked it for all it's worth. He's the North Side's answer to Laughren.

With all due respect, what we faced with him was not your police department. Johnson did not look out for officers. Quite the opposite. He ruined many lives. He became infamous for stripping/bashing first, asking questions later. He promoted incompetency. I don’t say this often, but I wish he was DUId. Thanks for your service. Unfortunately, this is not the same department you left. People don’t help each other out and everyone wants to screw other cops, even many bosses.

The only way you can only be this far from the truth is if you were dong it intentionally. He was a good copper and Sgt. He responded to an alarm where an armed offender had taken the store employees and closed the store themselves. When responding to the darkened store, with no information he was attacked and both he and the offender went through the glass on the front door of the store. He may have saved those peoples lives, while risking his own. As long as I knew him, he was a good worker and supervisor. I am guessing you are neither.

Boy and girls sometimes you have to man up did special ED commit a crime? yea traffic

If you cutting people breaks learn to do it correctly drive the drunk prick home fuck his car.
Learn when to turn off your cameras and know the orders. Wait till you see the copies of the white shirts reports compared to the 2 brilliant patrol officers.

Im betting they are gonna go with we couldnt tell he was drunk or stoned from pills.

Okay, okay. I messed up. I should have put the currency exchange thing on the back burner. I just heard robbing the Social Security Administration is eazy-peezy and the consequences, if any, are minor. And, here is the astonishing thing: you don't have to stick a gun in anybody's face or even go anywhere. They'll mail the money to you! I should of thought of this scam years ago! Forget the currency exchanges, SSA is the place for me!

Jerome responded to an armed robbery pattern at a cell phone store and was the first car on scene. Saved 7 hostages tied up. He made first class on Detectives exam in 2000,first class of Sgts in 2003, both on score,as i was in the first class with him. I made lt on the same list before him. You are right he got made a few classes early because of that incident, but wouldve been a Lieutenant by score probably in the 3rd round or so. Actually was arrogant in his youth, but has turned out to be a respected boss who takes care of the troops-isnt that what its all about?

Part of an earlier and larger post is above.

One of the sacred rules for myself that I created while still active was; NEVER call for a supervisor! Notify if the call requires notification but never, ever, call one for a decision that you, as the police, should be making. That's why you get paid on the 1st and 16th.
