Media Trolls Again?

You're welcome Sun Times. They should be sending us a check:
  • In an apparent breach of protocol, authorities are investigating how a female inmate ended up in a Markham courthouse holding cell with two male inmates in an encounter that was possibly sexual in nature.

    Two male inmates last week first told guards they had been placed in the holding area with a female inmate, who threatened them with a syringe and demanded sex; the female inmate claims the men instigated the sexual encounter, a source with knowledge of the investigation said. No syringe was found.

    The Cook County Sheriff’s Department has asked State’s Attorney Kim Foxx to investigate claims from jail inmates who have made the opposing claims; the sexual assault is alleged to have occurred in the holding area outside a courtroom at the courthouse.
How about this - every story that the Tribune and Sun Times lift from our comment sections, they contribute $50 to the Chicago Police Chaplains Ministry. For every story that the get from the main page (by which we mean we post it more than 12 hours before they do), the Chaplains get $100.

So far in May alone, they owe the Chaplains $300.

Guess the staff went to the Medilldo journalism school, where the concept of plagiarism is not covered.
Amen to the selection of the Chaplains Unit, CPD's unsung heroes.

Speaking of Chaplain's Ministry. Those that attend Fr Dan's mass (usually at 11am), Mother's Day mass will be at 10am. SCC, I will give the SunTimes' contribution this time.

Great idea! Now if you would please smaller words, so when they cut & paste your stories, their editors could better follow along... having to stop reading and looking up the longer words breaks the flow of the narrative. With Northwestern letting the Medill school wither and die, journalism will die out completely without you ghostwriting for the local rags.

May you guys at SCC live to be 120 yoa. You guys give so much to us old retired guys, have to hit the blog at least 5 times a day. it is without question that you all missed your calling in not reporting National news. But then again, you guys don't lie as the 10 million a year alleged journalist's of today.
Keep giving advise to the young copper' so they stay away from standing tall in front of a county Judge after that 5 times to pass the bar States attorney Kimmo sand bags them.

Dart's plan is coming together.

Go to jail to take a break from the hard life on the street. Get three square meals, hang out with your family and friends, shower, have a female come to your place, have a pizza delivered afterwards and be out in three days.
And if you want to be a rock star you too can trash the place.

All on the tax payers tab.

It isn't that they are getting the information from the comments sections OR from your stories, cmon guys, you gotta know how this works by now. Of course they already HAVE the stories and the information, they are just holding it back waiting to see if anyone says anything about them - and if they don't see comments or blog posts......then they don't print it as part of the sweep down the memory hole.

In order to protect that racket structure, if they see internet traffic talking about it they bang out a story, giving no more information out than what is seen online, in order to avoid claims they have information they aren't printing.

think what would happen if people started really blowing whistles.....lots of them! Folks need to realize - New Media really does run Old Media. So lets act like it! Keep up the good work guys! Blow them whistles some more!

Tom Dart proclaims he loves the inmates so much. If that is the case why was this inmate despondent/drug addicted woman quickly thrown to the streets in an attempt to keep this snafu quiet. They had her charges reduced and tossed here back on the streets, not even a slice of pizza to go. Dart probably figured she would forget and it would all go away. Unfortunately for TV Tommy every blood hound lawyer in Chicago is now trying to locate this woman.

Hey assholes, where is the CPD motor unit for the falllen officers and their families this week in DC. 150 uniformed bikes escorting the families of the fallen around all week in DC. Motor Officers from as far away as Alaska and California picking up CPD slack.

Tom Dart hires so many lawyers he could have his own law firm. None of them have been the police, corrections or deputies, but they have all the solutions. Ask them. These lawyers are out to get as many sheriff personnel as they can. They are all political appointees and need to be dumped. Get rid of all the management in the sheriff's office and you would save money on the budget.

Big changes coming down for SWAT. 35th Street is pissed at the To/From that all of the SWAT team signed. Basically, none of the SWAT officers will be taking their gear home with them. They will leave their gear at Homan Square and will respond from home to Homan to pick it up. So you live in 022 or 016 and you are going to drive to Homan to pick up your gear, a squad car and then drive back North or South for an HBT job? That's fucked up SWAT clout crybabies.

They want D-3, take home cars with safes and on call pay. You guys think your SEALS? LMAO!

Hope you enjoy the districts this summer in blue uniform. Word has it you will be assigned to a district and your gear will be on the truck waiting for you just like the old HBT days and how NYPD ESU does it. No more green. Looks too military. You guys blew it.

However, we gotta be honest about one thing. A large number of "murders" aren't really murders so much as they are simple exercises of self defense that the now dearly departed had coming. Maybe there is a bit of a classification problem as much as a clearance problem?

The link is absolutely worth a read. Not just by the police, but the media and the public.

The media and public have no idea of the investigative process that police are subject to regarding shooting incidents. The media makes no effort to learn.

However the measures proposed by Foxx may work to police advantage.

Under Garrity, officers must answer and make statements as long as criminal prosecution is not likely. Under Foxx's proposed law, prosecution would be involved so the officers would be covered by Miranda rights.

Of which rule #1 is: SAY NOTHING!!!

I.E.. He (Dart) wont speak or say hello to anyone who is not exempt, The rules don't apply to him (chastises employees who make him show ID), giggles in interviews about harassing/transferring his employees, refuses the dying wish of a hospice patient (deputy) a retirement star, never once attends officers funerals, calls Cook County his universe at the accountability meetings.

Unfortunately some of our court services deputies and County correctional officers are being prohibited from carrying a firearm after retirement, and there is an active lawsuit right now.

So our non-police but still LE retirees after 30 plus years of caging these animals retire and they need a way to protect themselves so they're forced to get a CCL.

Please God, is there anyone in CPD that will run for Sheriff? Anyone? I am afraid that this guy Izzo that thinks he has a whiff of a chance is going to get steamrollered, and we get stuck here with Dart for another 4 years.
