POWER Test starts on Aug. 26. BTW, what's the deal with this being FOREVER disqualified from taking CCSPDs POWER Test, or any other test within the Sheriff's Office that requires the taking of the POWER Test

If this is true and you get disqualified then file a suit.No where in the Merit board rules does it say this.Again Dart is trying to set rules without negotiation.The only way to stop the insanity is to challenge it.

This is a comment on the chicago suntimes website reguarding the Munoz verdict. This is why we have to stick together Dart. You have to stop the nonsense of targeting your own people. You and patterson are really putting us in harms way with your political persecution. Here is the life threating comment that the suntimes approved. Do they not review the comments?

"WOW Both the judge and the officer deserve to be killed in the most brutal way possible this is why we must support freedom and our liberty, by killing cops and judges who do not follow the rule of law...
final note the judge and cop in thi s case deserve to be killed in the most brutal way possible"

for whatever reason but to work these township hirebacks for $27.50 an hour is really insane and I for one refuse to do it.
STOP! working these hirebacks at this low and unfair rate, each of you should be working these hirebacks at least at your regular hourly rate.
---
I never write on this blog. Usually I read it, but never have offer insight until now.

Whoever wrote about this hireback thing is not thinking this through. If you think sending the union in to muscle them into a raise will work, you are kidding, right?

Here is my perspective insofar as working hirebacks for 20 years. The Township sets up a special police district where they collect revenue from unincorporated residents and these funds are used to hire back CCSPD for augmentive patrols. The unincorporated area has gotten smaller, thus the pool of taxpayers has as well.

Northfield used to have 2 hireback cars...... 1562 and 1563, remember? When the funds went down they had no choice but to cut out one of the cars.

If you go in there and demand more pay, they'll simply cut the number of patrols again.

Also, the Sergeant must STOP sending Northfield into Maine or Wheeling to answer calls. The taxpayers in 35/36's beat are under no obligation to pay for police service in other areas.

Also, this is not a ticket-writing mission! In the words of Lt. Charlie Schenk, you are only supposed to drive up and down up and down the streets of the beats, wave at the people, back up cars, and only handle jobs IF 35 and 36 are down. Arrests pursuant to your perpetrator oriented patrol (stopping burglaries, CDP's etc.) are fine. Stroking minority motorists ON THE TOLLWAY ain't!

So, are you sure you really want to demand more money out of these overtaxed taxpayers in this crap economy? Do so at your peril.

In the imortal words of Lt. Dave Perci: "Pigs get fat and hogs get slaughtered".

Me, I make a lot more than 27 bucks an hour, but if some young policeman needs some extra cash and wants to give Maine and Nfld good service I am all for it.

Here endeth the lesson.

Didn't patterson work for the Suntimes? Not only did his former employer let him take a cheap shot munoz again, they also allowed death threats in the comment section against the judge and munoz. Tom Dart And Steve Patterson are real stand up guys!

Suntimes still has not removed the death threat against Munoz and the judge. Perhaps Patterson can call his former employer and ask for it to be removed? Dont Hold Your breath.

Tom Dart Hires Prostitutes. More funding well spent sheriff.

A two-hour documentary set to air Thursday night on the Oprah Winfrey Network details the unique approach the Cook County Sheriff’s Office uses when handling prostitution cases and the efforts made to help those women turn their lives around.

“Prostitution: Leaving The Life” is set to air at 8 p.m. CST on OWN. It details the work done by employees in the Sheriff’s Women’s Justice Programs – including three former prostitutes who work with the Sheriff’s Police Vice Unit to conduct on-site outreach and intervention with women at the point they are arrested in a prostitution sting. They offer immediate access to treatment services, as well as linkage to medical care and safe housing, in order to help them begin a path to recovery. Those willing to accept treatment services are immediately provided an opportunity to begin to leave the life they’ve been leading. SWJP staff also attend court hearings and attempt to link the women with services available at the Cook County Jail – working with judges to order the women to the rehabilitative programs offered by SWJP, instead of going into the jail’s general population.

Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart started the unique program in 2008 after finding his officers repeatedly arresting the same women. Recognizing the underlying effects of trauma and drug addiction that drove many to prostitution, Lisa Cunningham, Marian Hatcher and Brenda Myers-Powell have been hired as peer coordinators. In those positions, they assist other women in need, by referencing their own histories with trauma, addiction and prostitution.

Since then, SWJP staff have conducted nearly 100 interventions with women on the street, just moments after their arrest. Of those, 40 have accepted help. Cook County judges have sentenced another 25 women to the SWJP program by court order. SWJP staff have also reunited four underage girls with their families and have also worked with internationally trafficked women in ensuring they made it home safe to their native country to be reunited with their families.

The documentary follows the work of Lisa, Marian and Brenda as they continue to assist women from the city and suburbs who have made the decision to turn their lives around.

I never said the guy was a prince. Look at who was running North Investigations then. Perhaps they did Charlie a favor. I know that his little head guided the big head (he was doing 2 of the female civilians at the square at once while married!). BUT: he was correct in what we are supposed to be doing out there as far as patrolling the beat. I live in a western suburb, and my wife and I see a marked squad in our neighborhood every day or every other day. Much more than i can say for the CCSPD!

The Heights was an example of how NOT to run a contract police detail. We had Charlie out there, along with Errol (let me stand nekked in your bedroom, pretty lady) Levy. And lets not forget Denny Walsh either who probably was the main cause of losing our detail. People would call up with legit beefs where the Ofcs were flat-out wrong and richly deserved to get banged for something and Denny would tell them in so many words to go fuck themselves. I could go on about the misfit cops that got assigned there, but they were created and nurtured into non-performance by a void of competant leadership.

Hell, we had guys pinching 6-101's out of Piper Lane all night long and the Taxpaying homeowners west of Piper Lane were getting robbed blind.

You think it was interesting that when the Heights formed up their own PD not a single Sheriff's Copper was hired?

Funny thing is what is old is new again, look at our Commanders and their ticket races, and the complete and total breakdown of the command of our Dept.

I have concluded that we just have no leader. Say what you want about Packy, Burke, Fitz, O'Dea and Mac, we have never had such a void in leadership, I swear.

God help the CCSPD, that is all I can say.

Hey Einstein, if you came on the job at $27.50 and took a pay cut to get on would you have taken it, and if the County Board Cunt lowered your regular hourly rate to $27.50 would you think that was fair and a great deal.
Wake the fuck up $40.00 an hour sounds alot fucking better than $27.50, you could buy alot more for those little ones, think about it, simple math, nothing to hard for you to figure out here.

Thats a very close evaluation to which I agree with you-mostly. However, facts are Walsh was long, long gone when the Heights Detail ended and definetly NOT the reason the Detail ended. He was transferred downtown to be the Public Relations Officer-remember? And that was maybe 1981-82. Then, Levy was there next for awhile. Not long at all actually but long enough to leave his mark.
The demise was under the drunken command of Ray Olsen. He was there prior to '85 and until the end several years later. He was the longest running detail Commander.
In all fairness, there were some good Sergeants there along with some good guys. And there were some bad Sergeants and dogass P/O's too. Just like regular patrol. Just like the entire CCSPD. Just like the entire "Sheriff's Office".
Now, who can we blame the loss of Burbank detail on?

Tom Dart For Nobel Peace Prize said...

On Thursday at 8 p.m., OWN presents “Prostitution: Leaving the Life.” so much so that attempts to reduce funding for this program always meet fierce opposition from legislators whose districts are struggling to reduce gang- and drug-related crimes. Hopefully, “Leaving the Life” will give Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart the evidence he needs to make a case for his aggressive campaign against prostitution at a time when county government is swimming in debt. Dart defends his decision to use former prostitutes to help get prostitutes off the street.

“The human side of why we’re doing this is obvious, But you can also look at the amount of money we save the taxpayers,” Dart said in an e-mail. “We’re talking about working with people so they are no longer in the system,..whose children are not in jeopardy of going into the child welfare system.” Too bad these documentaries aren’t as available as “Jersey Shore” or “Real Basketball Wives” because these are the stories that could change lives.

Speaking on the Tom Dart Shackman scam. Who paid 5.3 million to darts lawyer buddies over that three year period. Was it the county or did it come out of our funding. And i always thought the lawyers received 33% while the claimants got the rest. How was this scam not criminal?

The legal tab is $5.3 million, including $2.4 million for Mr. Meacham and his staff, $1.3 million for outside lawyers at Hinshaw & Culbertson, $918,000 for the lawyer Michael Shakman and aides and $762,000 to claimants.

Look at the way Darts press release reported the shakman scam. Notice how they failed to mention the the payouts.

DART’S REFORMS BRING HISTORIC DECLARATION OF SHAKMAN COMPLIANCE


— More than 40 years after a federal lawsuit was filed alleging elected officials in Chicago were improperly using politics to drive decisions on hiring and promotions, Cook County Sheriff Thomas J. Dart was found Thursday to be operating an office free from those influences.

The changes Dart has made to achieve compliance are structured to ensure policies remain in place even if he isn’t sheriff.

Dart’s “effort is unmatched by any other” office falling under the Shakman Decree. The steps taken “increase oversight, accountability” and produce “a better, fairer and more functional office,” where “the benefit to the public … while difficult to quantify, is considerable.”

“From the day I took office, I made a commitment to operating an office responsibly - the way the public expects,” Dart said. “I’m incredibly grateful to those who have worked so hard to help us reach this point and hope it instills the kind of confidence among voters and taxpayers that they deserve.”

Retired Cook County Judge Clifford Meacham, appointed in 2008 to serve as the sheriff’s federal monitor, or compliance administrator, shared in praising all involved in the case and the cooperation and commitment displayed by both sides, as well as the guidance provided by Judge Schenkier and retired U.S. District Court Judge Wayne Andersen, who previously presided over the case.

“One of the keys to the success of this assignment was the sheriff’s cooperation and support in all phases of this effort,” Judge Meacham said. “Sheriff Dart personally participated in training and made it clear to all personnel that compliance was a priority of his. Doing so, went far towards achieving a Shakman compliant office.”

But she wouldn't dare question some mutt from the jail who has migrane headaches. The deputy involved should of sued the shit out of that ignorant bitch.

This is my take on her...makes up rules as she goes along and will be unemployed when dart gets the f&@ck out!

The question is when she goes back to rainbow cone will she still be able to pack the two scoops like she use too or will she be a lil rusty for a while. Why did Dart get rid of all the good Sheahan people but kept all the shit ones.

Department Members
Please be Advised.

There is an email being circulated by DM.

He is asking for permission to talk about you and your interaction with Peer Support.

This is absolutely not in your best interest.

Once again DM is protecting his ass and the asses of his friends who currently have those nice cushy assignments.

Assignments they can not talk about due to "confidentiality."

Now however after two department members die of apparent suicide, within hours of each other there is a challenge to the productivity of his little unit.

Now DM is asking permission to publish facts related to you.

Do not release any of your personal information, do not give anyone permission to speak about nor publish details of your event.

Rainbow Cone has been having fun lately throwing around "Fitness for Duty" Do not be trapped.

DM you should be ashamed of your self. Protecting your little unit at the expense of someone else.

For those of you who said Peer Support was a joke, a reason to assign favorites to "do nothing" assignments,

I apologize,

YOU WERE RIGHT.

DART’S REFORMS BRING HISTORIC DECLARATION OF SHAKMAN COMPLIANCE

— More than 40 years after a federal lawsuit was filed alleging elected officials in Chicago were improperly using politics to drive decisions on hiring and promotions, Cook County Sheriff Thomas J. Dart was found Thursday to be operating an office free from those influences.
~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~~

You've got to be frickin kidding.
There is more corruption & politics under Dart than ever before. He plays the gullible media everyday. This is only believable to the totally blind or uninformed. Look at promotions, hirings & Darts inner circle, plus the dozens of failed States Attorneys on his police payroll.

Anonymous said...

Don Milazzo i believe you are sincere. But given you track record of not standing up to Dart, people have the right to be skeptical of your intentions. Not one chief with the exeption of burke has had the courage to stand up to dart or OPR and their gustapo tactics. Also why do your peer support students have to be on the clock or getting O.T. when they counsel someone. Im sure a lot of good people including myself, whould do it on a volunteer basis to help people. Unfortunatly, by no fault of our own we are very unlikley to join peer support out of distrust of you and Dart. And many people who are really in need of peer suport are scared to reach out. You sir, need to resign your position. Not cause you are a bad person but because you shown Dereliction of your duties and failed leadership.

Anonymous said...

Do not give permission to have peer support air out any of your private interactions. What is the objective? So millazo can show fluff at the accountability meetings that they are actually doing something or so Rosie Two Scoops or OPR can say you are unfit for duty. At best its propaganda for millazo, at worst its so they can fckk you. I say again do not give these people any of your personal information. if you are having personal problems see a priest or a shrink. Do not trust these people. They are only looking out for Dart, not you.

Anonymous said...

Do you really think Don Milazzo would post his name on here without permission from Dart. That should be your first hint to not trust him. Dart has made a career of destroying officers lives. They are trying to get info to see if they have a few officers who are unfit for duty. If your dumb enough to fall for it you deserve whatever you get.

Another great comeback, probably by a 19th ward drop out. It is funny that those born with a silver spoon in their mouth are expected to work now. How dare the county do this to you. It is an outrage. At least now you can join the club and see how the other half works and lives. Don't worry though you will get use to it.

Anonymous said...

Chief,
Thank You for having the courage to make a comment and sign your name.
Since you have shown your willingness to openly comment on the blog, I have a few questions and one comment for you .

You have Deputy Sheriff's assigned to your unit on a full time basis.

Was there a bid for those positions?

Were all qualified candidates interviewed and the best candidate chosen?

The problem with your peer support unit is confidence.

Some Department Members may have a natural distrust of hand selected appointees.

Furthermore your own credibility is suspect after your reaction or lack of action when two department members under your command were injured, and you either ordered and /or did not publicly protest the order given to release the offenders without charges.

So as you can see a person suffering severe distress, to the point of injuring themselves, may be unlikely to pick up a phone and reach out to someone who is not worthy of their trust.

Unfortunately, You Sir are not worthy of our trust, and by their connection with you neither are the hand picked people assigned to your unit.

If you are serious about helping the suffering under your command, take Yourself out of the equation, or take a stand against what is wrong with this department.

Prove to the rest of us that our assessment of your character was inaccurate.

Stand against the gestapo tactics of OPR, speak out against frivolous charges against deputies and malicious prosecutions where no crime has been committed put a stop to the abusive use of discipline.

Publicly state that personnel has no authority to judge the fitness of anyone.

These events are taking the life from this department, even when the victims of persecution are not suffering emotional distress, the suffering have eyes, they can see what may be in their future, maybe they do not believe they can survive the pain.

In any case there is not much chance of any dialogue without trust.

Consider my suggestions, make your choice.

Know this, the problem with Peer Support is not the staffing level nor the availability of Peer Support Officers.

The Problem with Peer Support is Credibility and Trust.

At this point and time You and Your unit are deficient in both.

Don,
How do you expect to help a deputy that has been harassed by your buddy lieutenant. How can that deputy seek assistance and trust it won't get back to you! They can't, is a matter of fact not only did you not help them, but you and ms. Jackson went out of your way to mess with this deputy. Well Don, I am a firm believer that what goes around comes around! I will retire from CPD in 3 short years. I plan to return to the sheriffs office as a boss. Yes I am a resident of the 19th ward and a good friend of your chief deputy, don't believe me, ask him!. So I'll see you in 3 years. I advise you to right the wrong before then or retire because it will be going around.

Sheriff Dart.

As an objective non member of your agency (Cook County Sheriffs Department), I believe the following to be true.

As a media pandering darling such as yourself, I am sure that you do read this blog.

I can honestly say that since you came along the Sheriffs Department (Police, Corrections & Deputy Sheriffs) is more political than it has ever been.

You have proven to be the most Political, camera chasing fraud ever seen in Cook County.

Instead of pretending with your BS Shackman compliance, why not go totally legit & do the right thing. Get rid of all of your Political buddies & dozens of former States Attorney failures hidden in the various units of the Sheriffs Department & police.

I have seen many of your Crown Victoria/Unmarked squad driving attorneys/wanna be police driving from many establishments on Western Avenue.

I bet the day is coming when the media turns & writes a great EXPOSE' about Terrible Tommy Dart & your future will then be written.

DART’S REFORMS BRING HISTORIC DECLARATION OF SHAKMAN COMPLIANCE

Whens Dart lawyer buddies Judge Meacham and gang were allowed to collect 5 million dollars over a three year period of the shakman scam. They had to have been charging 500+ per hour. What bad economy. Dart's media propaganda war is priceless.

Anonymous said...

Did Judge Clifford Meacham retire in the Hamptons or Marthas Vineyard? It shows you how corrupt the media is when everyone knows that shackman shit was a scam and the media awards Dart with awards after wasting millions of tax dollars. BLING BLING Meacham should have at least bought Dart a rolex. And when dart has his yearly Christmas party in the ghetto with media present of course, he is going to have to explain how many turkeys five million dollars could have bought. Cause we all know how much Tom Dart cares for those poor underprivileged children when the cameras are on.

Dart gets caught making reckless pandering statements again about releasing Illegal Criminals while his spokesman Patterson recants his statements. Patterson and dart claim the reporter misquoted him. Repoter claims Dart started backpeddling after he was called out on his reckless comments by numerous Law Enforcement groups.


Dart’s Office Walks Back Controversial Comments
By Michael Volpe


The office of Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart is walking back controversial comments Dart made recently in an interview to a local public broadcasting station. In an interview with Chip Mitchell of WBEZ, Dart suggested that he’s reconsidering policies in which the Sheriff’s office would hold illegal aliens detained at the jail for forty-eight hours past the completion of their sentence in order for Immigration and Custom Enforcement to come pick them up and detain them on immigration violations.

Dart suggested he was considering the legal ramifications of releasing illegal aliens immediately upon the completion of their sentences, something the San Francisco County Sheriff’s office has recently begun to do.

“It does not lend itself to a sense of community where people will gladly come to you with information about crimes, get involved as a witness, even come forward as a victim, frankly,” said Dart to Mitchell in the interview of the current policy which mandates that all illegal aliens be held an extra forty-eight hours in order for ICE to come and detain them.

The controversial comments generated responses from all sides of this debate. Cook County Board President Toni Preckwinkle issued a statement in support, “I applaud Sheriff Dart’s recent public statement highlighting the troubling inconsistencies in current Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) policies that are in place at the Cook County Jail system. The disincentive for the thousands of immigrants in our County- including lawful immigrants and permanent residents- to cooperate with law enforcement places a great strain on our communities.”

Preckwinkle continued, “This serves as a perfect example of the need for our Federal lawmakers to enact comprehensive immigration reform.”

In an email, however, Cook County Sheriff’s spokesperson Steve Patterson distanced the office from Dart’s initial comments, “There have not been – and according to legal opinions can not be – any changes to the policies or practices in how the Cook County Sheriff’s Office handles immigration detainers, nor is there any effort to investigate ways to change those policies or practices.”
Patterson continued, “The story is wrong and was pointed out to the reporter.”

Chip Mitchell, the reporter on the story, stood by its accuracy in an email and said that Dart’s office told him nothing was inaccurate with the piece after it was filed.

Patterson didn’t respond to further emails and a phone call asking for specific inaccuracies.

Proponents of strict enforcement of immigration law responded angrily when asked for comment on Dart’s original assertions. William Gheen, President of Americans for Legal Immigration PAC said, “as soon as one of those kills somebody, I hope they’ll put him (Dart) in prison.”

CPDs Human Trafficking people. THEY did 95% of the work and arrests associated with this caper and CCSP stole their thunder
---
Not true sir. Your neighbor doesn't have his facts correct. The Sheriff's Police developed the initial intel and while it started in the S. Suburbs, it was later determined that a number of players were in the city and at that time CCSPD enlisted the help of CPD's units.

I am a Sheriff's Policeman and we all hate Dart as much as you do. Mike Anton is a good man and is doing the job ONLY because it is the right thing to do, and not to fluff up Sheriff Fluffer.

The CPD is a great department, and each and every dealing that I have had with your guys has been superb. I hope I (we) can maintain this relationship irrespective of our classless and mutually clueless bosses and command staffs.

In closing, who really gives a damn about the credit and accolades? The medals that you and I earn and wear really mean nothing anymore. These ruthless animals were forcing young, scared and uber-controllable little girls into prostitution and all manner of sodomic acts. Imagine if your 13 year old daughter was kidnapped and forced to suck off 8-10 men a night, taking ass shots, etc?

Screw the ribbons, do it for our kids already!

A man identified by Calumet City police as a Cook County corrections officer shot himself early Friday following a hit-and-run automobile crash that left a woman with a "substantial head injury."

Johnny E. Jones II, 51, of the 1500 block of Wentworth Avenue, Calumet City, shot himself under his jaw just before 1:30 a.m., Calumet City Police Chief Edward L. Gilmore said.

Jones is in critical, but stable condition at Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn.

The Times previously quoted Gilmore saying Jones died of his wounds, but Gilmore later learned Jones still was alive. Police are investigating the case and have not released the identity of the woman who suffered a head injury.

Jones has worked as a corrections officer for the county for 25 years, sheriff's spokeswoman Liane Jackson said. Most recently he was assigned to the Inmate Transportation Department.

Gilmore said Jones drives a bus that transported prisoners for the Cook County Sheriff's Department.

Jones was taken to Franciscan St. Margaret Health in Hammond before he was airlifted to Christ hospital.

The incident began shortly after midnight when Jones hit another vehicle that was stalled on River Oaks Drive near the Value City Furniture store at 2100 159th St., Gilmore said.

Jones rear-ended the other vehicle, then drove off without making any attempt to notify police of the crash, police said. The woman who was driving the other vehicle suffered a "substantial head injury" and was taken to Franciscan St. Margaret Health for treatment, Gilmore said.

Her condition was not known, although Calumet City police Lt. Tim Murphy said police believe she is expected to survive her injuries.

Jones' car sustained serious damage, and made it to the area near Stewart and Stony Island avenues when it finally stalled, Gilmore said. At that point, Jones used his cellphone to call Calumet City police, who say they received a call at 1:15 a.m. of a man threatening to commit suicide.

When Gilmore arrived at the scene, he saw Jones locked in his car and threatening to shoot himself, while officers tried to talk Jones into putting away his pistol. At one point, Jones' sister arrived to try to talk to him and calm him down.

Jones pulled out his pistol, held it under his chin and pulled the trigger, but the weapon did not fire, Gilmore said.

A few minutes later, Jones pulled the trigger again, firing the weapon, and then stepped out of his car with his hands in the air to surrender.

Police realized at that point he had shot himself, and they then took him to the hospital.

People like you who don’t know how to focus on what’s important is why people like Dart thrive. Here you are trying to bash liberals because he hired ex hookers to talk about hookers. Who cares that is such a small part of the budget you can’t even see it. What you should be up in arms about is who has the contracts to provide services for the new women’s justice program. Did they provide donations to darts campaign? Do you live in the city? How much of your money has gone to Burke’s police detail? Speaking of in service why can’t you bid on an academy position? Why can’t you bid on the position that Sgt. DS has or D/S ES? How much money did that property company make for the short time that the county used them? These are questions that a concerned taxpayer and citizen should be asking. But instead you’re focused on ex hookers teaching current hookers how to not be hookers…..get your head in the game buddy. And yes I know you’ll say that he didn’t hire any deputies but do you ever ask about the multiple deputies not working in courts which have not been replaced because they didn’t bid for their “special” assignments. I think you might need a wider lens.

First time I post a comment here. Why so much hatred!Everyone knows Tommy is fraud.But if everyone writes about all the "nice spots" and lawyer friends of his being hired and prostitutes giving sworn personnel classes.Its not even right why has nothing been done to him.How can the shakman thing not get exposed to the public. I heard that tommy ruins officers lives. I know of three that got fired for allegedly working a secondary job while a supt. got sixty days.Does anyone know if those guys are getting their job back???any info??? Fluffer will and I say will get exposed...one day????????

Domma was on our PD for a minute. I for one am glad that he is gone. Traitors and Tattletales do not belong on my department!

You know, I used to be a fan of Dart. Not so much anymore. Sheahan and O'Grady never did this much media pandering. The only else who does this is Arpaio in Maricopa County, and it has on occasion backfired on him too.

Johnny Jones is a good Officer. He and I were in the academy together.

There clearly is a problem here above and beyond the traffic accident, and the department as usual could not give a damn less about him, just how it will embarrass the Sheriff.

Wait untill In-service next year when we are to be taught a Womens Justice "Awareness" class by Ex-prostitutes just recently hired by Sheriff Dart. Yes the ex-whores Dart just hired in his 13 million dollar womens justice program are going to be lecturing us. Call Bull Shit-Wait and see!

I heard something like this also and thought it had to be a joke. But with Dart you never know.
I thought it was a joke when i heard transexuel inmates get to to pick what side they want to be on also. Dart is a left-wing radical and nothing he does would surprise me. And what is up with this Sherwood fellow thinking its a good idea for a Department that is bleeding for officer funding to hire a bunch of prostitutes. I pray this person does not wear a badge.

Let me say that i voted for Dart and Obama so Dont label me as some Righ-wing nut. I also am not a police officer but do enjoy shaved blog and this one for laughs. I have to say i have never seen anything like Sheriff Dart since Rev. Jesse Jackson in the 80's. Its very hard to believe this guy is in law enforcement. He has taken media granstanding to a level i have never seen before. I mean releasing illegal criminals, and hiring prostitues while cutting officers positions is reckless and unacceptable to me as a tax paying citizen. I will vote for obama again but definitely will never vote for Dart again. I also think you guys do a great job and it saddens you have to work in the environment Sheriff Dart has created.

I know i will get a lot of shit for saying this but i really dont see much of a difference between Arpaio and Dart. They both are self-serving media Propagandists. The only difference is one is on the far right and the other is on the far left. Neither one looks out for the best interest of their officers and the only objective they have is to feed the very bizzare media addiction they both have.

At first keep everything off the blog and set up some accts. For donations and campaign needs. Then get with the committeemen through out the county, to get their support, or at least to take their support away from Dart.
It's the committeemen who slate the ticket. The republicans would jump on this in an instant.
I know that there are a few well known ( political ) names in the Dept. But I'm sure that they don't want to lfight their own party. Even if the candidate doesn't win but runs a close race in would cost Dart money.
Dart wants a state wide job, that's no secret but the down states counties won't buy into liberal bull. So then we are still stuck with him.
Get behind one goal and achieve it and then move on to the next. At the rate were going now we will never make the job any better, and that's what the administration is counting on.

First of all, CPS drop out, it's Homan Square. Secondly, what is a HIDTA Ffriends? CPS should have taught you to read and comprehend what you read. The information regarding Homan Square and the CPD vehicles came from the informant, a gang member, not the officers quoted. Homan Square has been open since about 1990, every drug dealer in the City knows about it. So in conclusion, please return your CPS diploma ASAP.

*************

When the discussion of "cyberbanging" came up, he said "we are monitoring it all".

From my personal knowledge and police experience I KNOW that gang bangers post shit on the internet. They brag about murders, send threats and communicate through coded messages. They think that their accounts are "private". It gives US an advantage if they think that we are not capable of monitoring them.

He said publicly "we are monitoring it all". He told all criminals, not just gang bangers and drug dealers, that we have the ability to monitor their social networks. I guarantee that they change it up and stop using the internet. I would bet that gang chiefs will hand down orders to stop using the internet just like they stopped using cell phones, nextels and texting.

He has limited another powerful police tool for the sake of SELF SERVING bravado to the media.

Last thing....those of us in the drug/gang investigation business are not jealous, we have all been there and done that. Most of us are also not too impressed with Domma or Diaz. Both self serving, big mouths who are in it for personal gain!

50 C/O's To courts and 20 CCSPD hires confirmed by Sheriff Dart in the Brief. Sheriff Dart claims he is addressing the safety concerns of the short-staffed deputies. But the problem is its not going to help out much at all. We have at least 10 going to Sheriff's police from courts, 10-15 will soon be making sgt which makes a net gain of around 25. Then take in the fact that about 20-30 deputies retire per yr. So now a year from now we will be sitting with less deputies than we have now. So some explain how this is adressing the problem and not simply Sheriff Dart's way of covering his ass cause all the complaints filed about lack of staffing. So when someone does get hurt Dart can say he was proactive in his approach but if you really look at the numbers we are not gaining any manpower. This is all smoke and mirrors in my opinion.
