NATO Update: CCSD officer's chose not to follow Tom Dart other officer's seen by a Walgreens near Maddison were seen running to Tom crying the protesters are going to get us

Even thou it is 3 days after NATO I wanted to share some information with you in regaurds to Tom I can not carry a gun Dart. This will be a Sarge first to do this but upon the NATO blog where Tom Dart was not there his men and women recovered 14 pipe bombs at a Metra station where recovered by the CCSD while assisting Chicago and Metra Police. But what Tom Dart can not explain is why "High ranking CPD source tells blogger that a melee broke out between protestors and police less than one block from the Daley Center entrance. Commander from CPD called the Daley Center for immediate assistance. Supervisor from Court Services told the Commander they were under strict orders from Chief Jackson not to assist in any manner. Commander became furious and told the supervisor he was going to call Preckwinkle's office. Commander was able to contact Mike Masters, Director Homeland Security for Cook County. According to the source Masters contacted Sheriff Dart who delayed Masters by saying he had to think it over. The source says Masters became very agitated and told Sheriff Dart that he had the legal responsibility to assist. Source says by the time the Sheriff finally agreed to send help the fight was already diffused. Source tells blogger a few Sheriff officers showed up minutes after the confrontation was already over. He says CPD from numerous blocks over arrived well before the Sheriff.." Source SheriffNews

C.P.D., Metra and other agencies have stated to the Sarge that the CCSD were there and they were doing their job on the subway stations these same agencies also stated they can not speak on to what happened above ground. So not all of the CCSD is bad those officer's said fuck Dart I am assisting. See the way the public sees it is that Chicago's Venue but isn't Chicago in Cook County so then it is also a county venue. " What is Chicago's venue is the Cook Counties venu and both are in my state which makes it a state venu so why is it only C.P.D. and my ISP officer's the only one doing a job. Granted yes Mc Cormick Place and Navy Pier are state property in the City of Chicago but they are also in the County of Cook and we had no help why" Hiram Grau Director of the ISP.

Hiram Grau Director of the ISP also stated that he will be notifying the County office and speaking with the County President.

Other Municipalities that where there also stated that Cook County Sheriff Police and Riot teams should have assisted. A.P.D.stated that Gary Police and Milwaukee Police along with other counties Champaign being the farthest stated Cook County Sheriff cops have a rep of being such tough asses that all this showed was how much of a sissy they are. " Cook County guys have a rep of being these tough zero tollerance guys because of the City of Chicago and other areas they cover and the higher crime than what we have but these guys should have helped instead of standing there like a deer in head lights. I mean hell the main building where they have court was under attack and my department along with other agencies assited Chicago but the CCSD didn't do anything what cowards." Kankakee County Sheriff's SGT.

" We are under order's from Tom Dart not to engage protesters that is Chicago's problem." Deputy Chief Williams.
Gary Mc Carthy went on record stating " If you think it is easy to ask people to do what they did it's not. Asking people to put them selves in harms way knowning they are going to get assualted to be able to stand there and take it. These guys are amazing."
Hours after he helped remove an officer with a minor stab wound from the clash between Chicago police and Black Bloc protesters Sunday afternoon, Superintendent Garry McCarthy saw the same policeman again — this time on Michigan Avenue facing off against protesters trying to rush the Art Institute.

"At about 10 o'clock last night, I looked to my left and said, 'Wait a minute,' and he said, 'Yeah, that was me,' and I said, 'Get outta here,'" McCarthy said Monday. "I'm so proud of these guys. … I just love being a police officer."

McCarthy's chest clearly was swelling with pride over the little incidents that happened repeatedly over several days. He proclaimed Monday that the officers under his command had done the city proud, from the cops enduring hour upon hour of profane taunts without losing control to veteran commanders rarely if ever losing their patience with protesters who clearly didn't know where they wanted to go next but wouldn't give up the streets.

But if the Police Department came off well to residents and visitors who watched it all unfold over the weekend, McCarthy himself earned some badly needed points of respect from his own officers.

After a year of serving a mayor who is unpopular with police, the veteran New York Police Department honcho was still viewed as an outsider by much of the department's rank and file. But the thousands of officers on the street over the weekend saw McCarthy putting in the same hours on the street as they were. The real bump for his status, however, came Sunday when clashes between protesters and police turned violent. McCarthy was standing at the back of the line in his white shirt and blue cap running the show from the scene.

"I think he scored some major brownie points for being out there with the troops," said a lieutenant who previously had a negative impression of McCarthy, who marked his first year in the office shortly before the NATO summit.

One of McCarthy's harshest critics in the last year, police union President Michael Shields, echoed the sentiment.

"I think the officers that served in the NATO summit did an amazing job, and they demonstrated that this is a world-class city and world-class police department. The superintendent truly did an excellent job as a leader of this department during NATO," said Shields, president of the Fraternal Order of Police. "He was literally 10 feet away from the officers during the heat of the battle. I respect that."

Perceptions about leadership are difficult to control, and McCarthy has struggled with criticism that he's brought an arrogant New York-knows-best attitude and is too cozy with Emanuel. His decision to be on the ground at the demonstrations has helped him, no doubt, but he said he can't imagine not being there.

"It's where I'm supposed to be," he said. "And I have great reverence for officers. I interact with them very easily. You can't fake it. You either are or you aren't. I'm very comfortable in that role."

McCarthy said Monday that departmental morale "is actually very, very good."

With the summit ending, officers "are kinda tired, they're looking for an ending, but they're proud of their accomplishments," he said.

McCarthy was careful to heap praise not just on the rank-and-file officers but also the commanders on the street. Their years of experience running street operations and special units helped them keep cool heads when demonstrations that stretched on for hours became exhausting, frustrating affairs for all involved. Day after day commanders such as Deputy Chief Wayne Gulliford and district bosses Kenneth Angarone and Chris Kennedy were on the street.

"These people have done an amazing job, and I don't know how they're still standing," he said.

In an unexpected benefit from the summit, officers received an unusual amount of gratitude from citizens. Many of the officers typically work in the city's most violent neighborhoods, often a thankless job.

"I've gotta tell you, this has been a hugely refreshing experience for me," said one veteran detective who normally deals with homicides and gang violence on the South Side. He said over the last few days, officers have been repeatedly praised by residents, offered cold drinks and other kindnesses. "We're not used to this."

Such reactions from the public haven't surprised McCarthy.

"It's the nature of Chicago and that's one of the reasons I really love it here."

City Hall fights parking ticket

Taxpayer tab up to $50 million as company running meters wants city to pay for missed revenue; mayor disputes bill

As profits soar for the company running Chicago's metered parking spaces, so are the multimillion-dollar bills the outfit is asking taxpayers to foot under little-known provisions in its long-term deal, according to documents obtained by the Tribune.

The latest bill, sent May 17 by Chicago Parking Meters LLC, demands $22 million to cover a year's worth of free parking for vehicles that displayed disabled placards or license plates. The amount is part of a nearly $50 million tab that Mayor Rahm Emanuel so far has refused to pay.

"Just because there is a bill doesn't mean we automatically cut the checks," mayoral spokeswoman Sarah Hamilton said Wednesday in an email. "Since day one, it has been our top priority to fight on behalf of the taxpayers of Chicago and better manage the contract."

Emanuel intends to dispute the latest bill, as he has other CPM bills since taking over as mayor a year ago, City Hall sources said. But if the company does end up collecting in full, the money would only add to a growing bottom line.

Last year, CPM's gross revenue was $108.5 million, an increase of nearly $36 million from 2010, according to the company's financial statement submitted to the city. The total includes the disputed amounts for 2011.

After expenses including interest on the money it borrowed to launch the deal, the company made a profit of $27.4 million, according to the statement.

The Tribune sent the company a list of questions about the disputed bills. Spokeswoman Avis LaVelle declined comment, saying it is the company's "policy not to comment on ongoing disputes."

Emanuel is the first of many mayors who will have to live with the meter contract that then-Mayor Richard Daley put in place during his final term. In late 2008, Daley got aldermen to quickly approve a 75-year parking meter contract in return for a one-time payment of $1.15 billion.

A botched transition to the private company, increasing meter rates and analyses concluding the city was shortchanged soured the public on the deal and helped send Daley's approval rating to a new low before his retirement.

Daley and aldermen then spent nearly all of the money to keep the cash-strapped city afloat. By the time Emanuel took over last year, only $125 million of the lease payment remained.

The contract also includes clauses that allows the company to charge the city for revenue it did not receive because metered spaces generated less annual revenue than promised.

Last year, the company hit the city with a $13.6 million bill for money it says was lost to vehicles with disabled placards and license plates, by the company's calculations. That bill arrived during Daley's waning weeks in office, leaving Emanuel to reckon with it. The matter is in binding arbitration.

The company also has charged the city $14.2 million for spaces it says were out of service for various reasons. City Hall sources call that tab and the way it was calculated "invalid and unauthorized" and "grounded in a number of errors and inaccuracies." This bill also could end up in arbitration.

During the first three years of the deal, the city paid less than $2.2 million to the company for spaces out of service and nothing for money lost to spaces occupied by vehicles with disabled placards or plates, city records show. But as Daley and three of his top lieutenants were about to leave City Hall for jobs at one of the law firms that handled the parking meter lease, the bills began to mount.

Emanuel administration officials say they're at a loss to explain how the company estimated that the number of out-of-service spaces swelled from 5 percent or less in December 2010 to about 20 percent in March 2011 — one month after Emanuel won election.

Spaces can be out of service because the city eliminated them, changed hours of operation or temporarily closed streets. CPM argues the biggest loss of revenue resulted from the city increasing parking time limits for many spaces. In a letter to the company, city officials contended that increased time limits would "have either no effect ... or a positive effect" on revenue.

The city, meanwhile, continues to look for ways to lessen the potential for future bills for revenue lost to disabled parkers or metered spaces out of service.

Crackdowns on people falsely using disabled placards and licenses have been staged. New legislation awaiting Gov.Pat Quinn'ssignature would require payment by disabled people unless they are in wheelchairs or otherwise physically unable to feed the meters or pay boxes.

The city also is taking steps to minimize the number of meters out of service, in part by urging city work crews to lessen the time span of street closings. If meters are removed for construction, spots for new ones are considered.

And if a business wants a new loading or standing zone, the local alderman is given an estimate of resulting lost city revenue as part of the decision-making process.

Blue Island Police Officer's failed at a well being check left a dead man in the home for months

Eugene Davis died forgotten and alone inside his locked dilapidated Blue Island house even after its water and electricity were shut off, authorities said Wednesday.

Police found Davis' body, described as "mummified" by the Cook County medical examiner's office, on the floor next to his bed Tuesday afternoon, Ald. Dexter Johnson said.

Although the medical examiner's office hadn't formally identified the body as of late Wednesday, several neighbors and Johnson said it was Davis, 70, who had lived in the home in the 2800 block of West 141st Place for decades and was known in the neighborhood as "Sonny."

The medical examiner's office said he died of arteriosclerotic cardiovascular disease and determined his death was from natural causes.

Police are investigating, said Deputy Chief Michael Cornell, who declined to answer additional questions about the death.

Neither the medical examiner's office nor police said Wednesday how long they believe Davis had been dead, but several neighbors said they hadn't seen him for at least a few months. Johnson, who was in the house when the body was found, estimated that Davis had been dead for "a couple of months."

Police have been in contact with a relative of Davis, who told them the family last saw or heard from Davis in January, according to a law enforcement source. The relative described the man to police as a loner who was estranged from his family, the source said.

But several neighbors said Wednesday that Davis' sister would stop by every few weeks to deliver groceries and check on him, but they said they hadn't seen her for several months, either. Public records show that she died last fall.

"I feel so terrible," Kamilah Muhammad-Wells, 36, said while visiting her mother's house across the street Wednesday afternoon. "I feel like we should've been much better neighbors. He shouldn't have been in there so long. That's terrible."

Muhammad-Wells, who grew up in the neighborhood, and other residents described Davis as a quiet man who kept to himself. He lived alone in the house for the last several years after his mother died, they said, and would wave to neighbors when he retrieved the mail from his rusted, curbside mailbox.

But the mailbox became stuffed with unopened mail a few months ago, several neighbors said. The neighborhood's mail carrier stopped delivering Davis' mail and asked police to conduct a well-being check, neighbors said.

Several neighbors said police knocked on Davis' door about a month ago, which Johnson said police confirmed to him Tuesday. Nobody answered, but police didn't force their way inside, neighbors and Johnson said.

Even before the mail began piling up, the white two-story clapboard house stood out on a quiet street home to a mix of older and newer houses. Overgrown trees and bushes obscured the front porch, paint cans and old newspapers were stacked inside the front door, and nearly waist-high weeds and grass covered the yard.

Johnson said he decided to knock on the door Tuesday when he saw how high the grass had grown. A neighbor who works for the city's Water Department told Johnson that the water had been shut off about a month ago, prompting him to call police.

Police forced their way into the house, which Johnson said did not have electricity, and found Davis' body, he said.

"It's very troubling," Johnson said. "I really couldn't tell you what went on."

truck driver dead and leaves behind a 11 year old daughter

Calumet City crash
A semi driver was killed and his 11-year-old daughter and two other people were injured when the truck hit a car and then slammed into a home in south suburban Calumet City, authorities said.

The accident occurred just before midnight Thursday near Torrence Avenue and Michigan City Road. No one inside the home was injured, but a man and a woman in the car were hurt, in addition to the girl in the truck. All of the injuries were minor,

Richard Perkins said his 18-year-old son and 20-year-old daughter were returning home from Bible study when the semi drifted into oncoming traffic.

It tried to veer back into his own lane, but Perkins said the semi struck their car before skidding into the home and turning on its side.
"God must have been with them," Richard Perkins told WGN-TV this morning.

Calumet City police declined to release any details. The Suburban Major Accident Reconstruction Team was assisting in investigating the crash, officials said.
