Segments directly from the Sun-times article:

The Cook County Sheriff’s Office has made strides toward complying with the Shakman decree, a federal judge said Monday.

U.S. District Judge Sidney Schenkier said Sheriff Tom Dart has made “significant progress” by laying out new standards for hiring, firing and promotions and investigating complaints of political discrimination.

The sheriff’s office has been working with court-appointed Shakman monitors for three years.

Sorry, but I'm not buying the fact that Shakman monitors approved most of the promotions from the past three years. If those promotions weren't blatantly politically motivated than I don't what is. If they have been here for three years, what the fuck have they been doing?

Where the fuck does it say you can't have a bottle in the courtroom. Are you fucking kidding me! But is ok for those same
supervisors to sit in the office eating all day .





like i said if it states you cant have one then its his/her fault i dont know if it does or not im just saying if you break a rule no matter how stupid or minor its still a rule.just because the supervisors are lazy rule breaking fucks does not make it right for everybody else to do the same.please dont get me wrong i think its crazy and im not siding with the powers to be.remember its easier to do the right thing and defend your actions then it is to be wrong and defend yourself.

The management in this department have mastered the art of killing morale. This is the result of putting unqualified political hacks like kc and kj in positions of power. They have no common sense or leadership skills whatsoever. When you have a negative rating of over 95% of your workforce, you can not manage effectively. It's time for them to go.


I want to know what 5% think they are doing a good job.

Here is something the Markham Supervisors should read! They break every one of these simple rules. Hence-total chaos.



Supervisor-employee relations are a critical part of a work place atmosphere and promoting productivity and cohesiveness. The following tips address these issues:

1. Don't ask or expect your employees to do things you wouldn't do. Giving consideration to job assignments shows you have respect for the employee. Think about whether the assignment is fair before you give it.

2. Be available and easy to talk with. The open door is helpful but it's not enough. You need an open mind. Set a specific time to meet with staff. Make the rounds to see employees and to let them know you are interested in them and what they are doing and feeling.

3. Discuss your expectations with employees and check to see that both sides are in agreement. Lack of agreement on the nature and scope of tasks is a big cause of poor supervisor-employee relations.

4. Stand up for your employees. Take whatever steps you can to reduce pressures on employees. Look out for their interests. Take their part in matters when you can do so.

5. Show employees respect and confidence. Delegate important jobs you're sure they can handle well. This will show that you see them as trustworthy and that you respect them and their skills.

In reguards To Markham.

That place is a train wreck waiting to happen. Did anyone on here mention that they put a 84 year old deputy in a busy felony courtroom by himself days before he retired. The prisoners were coming down to lockup laughing their asses off. One inmate who is awaiting a murder trial said to me he should of picked today to escape. Then laughingly he joked he could escape anyday at this place. Not to mention the inmates who tell me all the time that they can take this place over any time they want. How can i disagree

The only reason only 50% of the Markham Deputies are on Proof Status. The other 50% have FMLA. We must all be slackers in the eyes of our fearless leaders downtown. Instead of investigation the issue, Kj and Kc deny peoples grievances who are getting suspended for calling off on proof status. And the vast majority of these deputies have POSITIVE sick time. Meanwhile other facilities arn't even writing people up who have zero or negative sick time. I guess we have two sets of General Orders in this Dept. One for the people that work at Markham and different Orders for the rest of the County. And to top that off, everytime KJ has a meeting with our union Steward, she pretends she is unaware of the problems at Markham. She either Doesn't care or she is ignorant.

Attention Markham Deputies
It is VERY important that you do your best to tell the entire story here on the blog. Our fellow workers all over the county look to this blog as a source of information and if you keep telling half truths and putting your own personnel slant on things than they are not being kept informed. After all that is what this blog is about…and a bit of entertainment to go with it. So….try to be a big girl or boy and tell the entire story as it REALLY happened and not as one of your friends in the jury room heard it from another person who was not even there. Every supervisor in that building can kiss my ass but they did NOT assign D/S E. M. to a felony courtroom days before his retirement that is a lie.

KJ is the chiefs bf in markam,they would be together every other day downtown. The allowed her to be chief for a couple years cause they knew she was retiring and KJ made her so she could have the chief pension. The messed up thing is she barley can read and she pushes deputys to get on fmla and then the people that come to work get screwed. As far as Shackman they haven't promoted anybody or had bids in over 3 years so that's how the media horror gets away with telling the media he keeping promotions fair. Go ask Beavers, Shehan and the part time h.s. Coach morrisey how they got promoted. Does he have secondary coaching football ?? Mmmm o.p.r get on it right.

As far as that chief is concerned. She is a nice person but has NO business in any kind of management position. She is very easily influenced by people not looking out for her best interest. And whats sad is, her own people have used and abused her. When she was at Domestic, she was able to survive cause she didn't have Sgt's and lt's who tried to manipulate her. And when you say she can barley read, is being very generous. I just hope she enjoys her retirement and gets away from all those back stabbers she thinks are her friend.

I just want to ask Jackson and Connelly a few questions. How does Markham have a different set of rules than the rest of the department? WHY is nearly 50% of the deputies on proof status with POSITIVE sick time when other buildings dont put deputies on PStatus who are in the negative. Why have you taken no action though you have been aware of the problems for some time? And Do you care that the deputies at markham are being subject to discrimination on a daily basis?

If you really think they will put a white chief at markham your crazy. They wouldn't even allow a white Lt with 25 years to bid over their. KJ gave a Sheriff's move to another one of her girls.

Ok deputies from other facilities other than Markham. How many deputies do You have working in you office, sitting on their asses, drinking from their water bottles in the public eye, and call for security to do a escort out of the office. Or when your facility is short, do they get re-assigned? Not at Markham. That would mean they would have to get off their asses and do some actual work. Markham has a clerk, a timekeeper, a de-deputized deputy and 2 "working" deputies (1 on the internet all day and the other saying she has tons of work to do!)in their office. Duh!!!!! Utilize the de-deputized deputy and let her answer the phones and work on the computer. She's capable! As DP always says...hal-lo!

Many thanks to the Lake County Deputies and the Chicago Heights officer who helped the Markham Deputy with a combative subject who did not want to go into custody this week. The situation could have been a lot worse than it was but would have been prevented with proper staffing and that has nothing to do with the race of the chief or who likes whom. The fact of the matter is that now that we (and every facility) are short it is more important to watch each other’s backs as opposed to bitching and moaning because you don’t have the chief’s ear like you did when the wood was there. There is nothing different now than there was than except that the jury room crowd can no longer go and get their hours changed at the drop of a dime or get vacation in the middle of the summer with only 2 years on the job. So let’s try and be adults now and focus on ALL of us staying safe and making it to retirement instead of always trying to insult the chief every day. By the way the person who said that Allen was a good chief….you must have been on some serious meds while he was there.

Just for clarity for those of you that don’t work at Markham Courthouse..for whatever reason Markham has always had an abundance of office staff. At one point we had 2 timekeepers(LJ and KJ) 3 clerks(CW, VR, GB) 3 deputies ; 1 in the office(JD) 1 in the radio room(LM) and 1 assigned as administrative assistant(PB) and an administrative sgt(MM) that’s a total of 9 not including Lt and Chief. Now we have 1 timekeeper, 1 clerk, 2 deputies, 1 admin sgt, oh and 1 de-deputized(who really shouldn’t count because she is temporary) but ok even if she counts that’s 2 clerks..So that’s a total of 5(6 if including de-deputized). For those of you at Markham that are a little slower and need a little help with math there’s less office staff now than there ever was.
Sure Markham has a deputy shortage, just like every other facility in the county. However Markham is short MALE deputies not females. So we have 2 female deputies in the office, 6 females in lockup, 4 females at the front door, 2 at the north door, 1 at lower level desk, and so on and so on..regardless of where any of the female deputies are assigned, the facility would still be short MALE deputies.
This blog should have more entries from facilities with real issues and less of spoiled Markham deputy issues.. being upset because we can’t eat or drink in a courtroom or upset because we are put on proof status WHEN WE DON’T COME TO WORK are not real issues.. grow up and be thankful that you have a job which for most of us(not all) entails sitting around in a courtroom waiting for a judge to come on the bench, or gathering around gossiping and complaining about any and everything, and yes counting the minutes until you can go home and post nonsense on the county blog..really!?!..GET A LIFE
So once again, whoever keeps posting all the petty, whiny complaints about how horrible is it to work at Markham…QUIT!! Good luck finding or working at a real job and having real complaints..
Let’s quote DP again..”THIS IS SOME MONKEY BALLS!!!”

Thank God that the lake county and chicago heights officers were there to help. Were was the Chiefs 300lb female crack security team when all this went down? All kidding aside, everyone knows markham is a ticking time bomb. We were very lucky that the male deputy didn't lose his balance over the upper floor railing which the offender had him pinned up against. And i agree in some part with the previous post that the problem is that we are short males. But the supervisors are also partially to blame. When a male deputy is working by himself in a super busy felony courtroom, putting his life in danger every day. He should not have to worry about being written up for having a water bottle. Call me crazy.

And im actually impressed at the two previous posts. Very well written. Even thought 90% of it is bull shit, its comforting to know that the chief has people that can put a coherent sentence together.

On May 27, 2009, Chicago Police Officer Densey Cole II was responding to a burglary in progress call in the 022nd District. While en route, Officer Cole’s vehicle was struck by another vehicle that had crossed over the median. Officer Cole’s head slammed against the roof of the SUV and that impact broke his neck. Shortly after the accident while he was still unconscious, two offenders entered his marked police vehicle, moved him, and removed his sidearm and wallet. This movement exacerbated Cole’s injuries. An offender was subsequently arrested and charged with disarming a police officer and robbery. Officer Cole was diagnosed a quadriplegic and is currently rehabbing in the Chicago area.



Densey Cole’s friends and family will be hosting a benefit to assist with the overburdening cost of medical bills, rehabilitation and necessary home renovation to accommodate his life as a quadriplegic and are asking for your help.

REVERSE DISCRIMINATION CLASS ACTION LAWSUIT.

Actually Socrates that would just be a discrimination law suit. What’s funny is that you really think that someone is stupid enough to believe that one chief can cause a racial divide that supersedes the one that was created in this department years ago. I have no idea what the working conditions are in your place but I have been with the county for years and although the admin is now more diverse it is still predominately white male and I doubt that one person in one building is going to change that. If you are sincere and believe that you are being discriminated against due to your race and you are just sitting there and taking it and then logging onto the blog to complain then shame on you because you’re taking the stupid route.

You realy don't believe that black on white discrimination can't exsist with a white sheriff. I would normally agree. However, with dart as sheriff, nothing suprises me. Never a more dangerous politician than a white male liberal. When you have white coward chiefs who are afraid to stand up to him. Perfect example-incident at 26th st. Also, i have spoken to an OP* investigater who just retired. He was disgusted the way OP* was targeting people and just had enough. He also said that OPR played racial politics and more vigorously went after non-minority officers. Im not exactly sure what the situation is at Markam. if you feel like you should file a lawsuit, you should. Just make sure you know what your getting yourself into. White liberal sheriff, coward chiefs, Discriminatory OP*. Your really going to have a fight on your hands.

Hey u Markham deputies. You are there for eight hours so why do u care if u get reassigned. Sgt's know who the workers are. Some of u deputies are like babies. U probable don't even work 4 hrs. out of a eight hour day. And God help it if u are asked to go on a hospital run. Boy u ought to see the babies cry then. u take more than a hour lunch and u r so busy watching what the other deputies are doing. I agree there are people in the office that should be assigned a courtroom. but this happens know matter who the chief is. get over this. There are some deputies that are assigned to courtrooms but are never there, but u see them everywhere else. Also some assigned to squads but u always see them in hallways and never in squad.(B.R.) In fact this deputy does only what he wants. So things will change around some day. Also, there are things the sgt. cant even change. Their hands are tied. So lets work throught the hard times and things will get better.

State Police & State Workers will be the first to feel the effects of losing their pensions.

Those pensions are backed by "Hot Air" from Springfield along with the Governor and State Legislators who only take care of themselves!

Oh Sure, the State Cops got an 80% deal with less years of service a few years ago, but it really don't count if there is no money in the fund to pay them every month.

The young hair gels need to pay close attention TODAY!

Start that deferred account, 457, IRA, something, because Mayor Daley has SPENT every cent of the city's money for decades to come and there ain't none left to put into the city pension funds.

He should be brought up on criminal charges for letting this happen!

What was the exact wording of the disclaimer about the promotions falling under Shakman on the personnel memorandum for JK / ED ?

I think that everyone, including whatever media types, would like to see & read the disclaimer and finally put rest all the silly allegations & rumors, that politics are involved in promotions, & these are legit & honest!

You Go Mr. Sheriff, You Go!!!!!

The Story of LT ED
(sung to the melody of 'The Beverly Hillbillies')

Come and listen to a story about a cop named ED.
An IHSA umpire, hardly worked his daily stead,
Dad was Northlake mayor and a governmental shrewd.
So up through the party came a favor for the dude.

Clout that is, hack gold, Chicago tea.

Well the first thing you know young ED's a profiteer,
Elrod said "ED there's a job a waitin' for you here"
Said "26th & Californy is the place you ought to be"
So ED became a dem-o-cratic hack county employee.

Frills, that is. crony rules, County cars.

Well now knee-high Smitty paid ED for kissin' ass again.
And gave him a nice bright shiney gold lieutenant's tin.
They're all going to be indicted with this dynasty
From a reapin' helpin' of unchecked audacity.

Crook County that is. buy your job, pay your dues now.

Y'all vote twice now, y'hear!



How close is this to the original? Take a look for yourself. I'm a bright one ain't I?


The Beverly Hillbillies

Come and listen to a story about a man named Jed
A poor mountaineer, barely kept his family fed,
Then one day he was shootin at some food,
And up through the ground came a bubblin crude.

Oil that is, black gold, Texas tea.

Well the first thing you know ol Jed's a millionaire,
Kinfolk said "Jed move away from there"
Said "Californy is the place you ought to be"
So they loaded up the truck and moved to Beverly.

Hills, that is. Swimmin pools, movie stars.


Well now its time to say good by to Jed and all his kin.
And they would like to thank you folks fer kindly droppin in.
You're all invited back a gain to this locality
To have a heapin helpin of their hospitality

Hillybilly that is. Set a spell, Take your shoes off.

Y'all come back now, y'hear?.

Ed some of us just are not lucky - a trail of bad luck follows them no matter where they go - no matter how hard they try to put the past behind them - the bad luck follows. HOW much can one person take - have i not paid dearly for poor judgement? now that retirement creeps up can i not just be left alone. One would think if you keep your mouth shut-rat no one out and suffer your losses that you would be left alone guess not. Its just a matter of doing the right thing, I did my part and then some only to be treated like a piece of crap because i trusted people who wanted to bring me down.

Fairness is all we want! What happened to CCSPD...it use to be a wonderful place to work- now it's just political- fighting crime is not on the agenda .Very sad.

Smiling faces are just frowns turned upside down, the pat on the back just might hold you back.
However, you forgot about Karma. can't control it----this my friend is out of your control- only GOD can. Next time you look in the mirror think about it. Stop and think about what your doing and why>

Took E.D. thirty years to make Lieutenant. Way to stick it to them Ed by calling in your juice at the end of your career. Now you can mess with people for another four years. I still think your crazy for not retiring when you can(R.I.P. Jerry O).

As to the Anonymous responders, you guys sure didn't bitch as much as when some of our three year wonders made Sgt. or five year wonders made Lt. Nothing we can do about it. All we can ask is that they learn and perform the job. Take your promotion serious.

Last thing. Be careful what you post. Last time I was at the square they were working on a software program to track IP addresses. Your posts will be matched to your county e-mail when you access it from a private computer. This must be why E.D. called in his juice now. He can really screw with all his anonymous fans.

Earned it how? All the complicated Cases, all the 3 am call outs, all the working all night going straight to court and spending an hour on the stand, all the locked up bad guys, all the being responsible for others on the street, all the covering two districts, all the making split second potentially life altering decisions, all the fucked up shifts and moving around to different shifts and districts, all the dealing with coppers from every jurisdiction in Cook County, all the doing everything possible to be exposed to all aspects of police work. You tell me which if any of these apply because there are a whole lot of sgt.s past and present who have done all rhis and more.

"...there are a whole lot of sgt.s past and present who have done all rhis and more."

Cracked me up with that one. Waffle, did you submit that nonsense?

It's the P/O's that do all that is mentioned.

Common knowledge dictates getting promoted to Sgt takes most of the activity off and Lt.'s have it easier.
Actually and/or factually~what do they do? Delegate. Maybe? Thats all.
How about a real, factual Daily Activity Sheet for them?
At least a guy like Bobby Jake is still out there making stops and being the Police.
Most Sgt's and all Lt's believe that along with the promotion comes the exemption of having to do basic things like traffic stops.
The public must never speed, run red lights, blow thru stop signs, cut other motorists off or simply drive like lunatics when these Sgt & Lt guys & gals are around. At least thats how its portrayed in the Sgt's and Lt's eyes!
Great examples to the young guys on the job.
Lt TEvans-what a stellar example of an entire career spent (actually wasted) doing absolutely nothing!
I dare you to ask him what arrest-if any-he made at some point during his career that he's proudest of? Scratch that. I dare TE to answer you-honestly. What jobs did he handle by himself that made a difference somewhere, somehow?

And he's not even the tip of the iceberg.
The drama goes on...
Enjoy the Holiday weekend County Guys and be careful out there!

Some legitimate points. Officer safety should be a priority. However, the things you mention have always been status quo. I don't expect anything to change and deep down either do you. You can stress yourself out by bitching and moaning or you can just go with the flow. Both paths have the same result.

Most important is to make sure you make it home after your shift. Back each other up all the time. If the next beat over gets a call get off your traffic stop. It's okay to let a speeder go with a verbal. The five minutes you take to write the ticket might be the five minutes your partner was getting his ass kicked. You can get a speeder, DSL or no valid later. The lack of equipment is a huge issue. Those without MDTs are at a disadvantage so please call in your stops before walking up to a car. If something happens, we need to know what we're looking for. These are not directed at you Anonymous, just general things.

Just wondering....why don't patrolmen get hazardous pay? I often frequent the Officer Down Memorial Page website(http://www.odmp.org/) to see how our fellow boys/gals in blue are getting killed out there. The vast majority are killed on traffic stops (by gunfire) or by responding to calls (traffic accidents). My point is that all aspects of police work is hazardous not just bombs, E.T., gangs etc. This website is very humbling and should be a reminder to all of what is going on out there. Be careful everyone. Even General Grant retreated a few times to live to fight another day. When your outgunned your outgunned.

Wow! Great idea down south, having Sergeants ride with the slugs so they are forced to do police work. The slugs on this department have gotten away with doing nothing for far too long. Hopefully they apply that strategy up North so the few Northern slugs get a taste of doing police work too. What I still dont understand is why the so-called police officers in patrol that do the least, complain the most.

The lead news story today

"What's next for Chicago"

My guess is a civil war, the politicians are thieves and they only care about themselves and the minorities and illegals have always hated the US government so what else is there left but killing and mayhem and we'll have the front row seat.
