Nice Boss

Who over-promoted this goof? Well our fearless leader in 003 has 10 p.o. on footpost on 71st and Jeffery. The commander tells the p.o's that the he doesn't want the nice new white vans parked on 71st. He doesn't want them shot. But fuck the P.o's. Now go get some ISR's and Dispersals.

And Another Great Move

Monday, the Department allowed everyone in Day Off Groups 62 and 63 to enjoy their regularly scheduled day. But the didn't tell them until mid-day Sunday. First and Second Watches worked 12-hour days, their 3rd in a row. Third WatchShow More Summary

What to Do?

So 12-hour days remain in effect for Monday, regardless of the outcome of Game 5.But if you are in Day Off Group 62 or 63, you are RDO. First and Second watches will have all the cars.And Third Watch? They show up for work at 1230 hours and sit around waiting for the Command Staff to make up something for them to do.Brilliant plan.

No Slow Down

In fact, it seems to be speeding up: 2014 - 3 killed, 28 wounded2015 - 4 killed, 15 wounded2016 - 16 killed, 42 wounded (tentative total) It looks like Chicago is going to blow past the SCC prediction of 666 long before December even starts.

Mayhem Continues

And not just at Wrigley.So far, during an unseasonably warm October weekend, 7 dead and 20 wounded ( per )And a warm Sunday to go.Yes, this is a mostly pointless post - but we warned you with the 12 hour days and canceled days off, it would be slow going. Bear with us.

Night One

A non-clinching game.Thousands of cops sitting in and around buses in the general area of Wrigley.This accomplished what exactly? That the Department could move large amounts of cops around the city 6 hours before game time using buses? The CTA proves they can do that every day of the year.Any stories to share?
