My buddy Phil was covering a story and we'll I have been left in place of it and just so ya know there is response from the mayor. Not even after we informed him about going to federal politicians with it.
It is like these elected officials don't care so why should we care if they are elected back in to office


The man known to millions of cable TV viewers as Chumlee on the reality show “Pawn Stars” was being held in a Las Vegas jail late Wednesday following his arrest on felony weapon and drug charges.The 33-year-old Russell wasn’t booked on a sex-crime allegation. Officer Larry Hadfield, a department spokesman, said that part of the investigation is continuing.

Records showed Russell was being held on 19 drug possession charges and one weapon charge. His bail was set at $62,000.

It wasn’t immediately clear if he had a lawyer.

The NFL draft will return to Chicago in 2016, NFL Commissioner Roger Goodell and Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel announced Tuesday.

The draft will be held April 28-30.

"We are excited to return to Chicago and look forward to creating an even better experience for our fans next year," Goodell said in a statement. "Based on the success of last year's Draft and our high expectations for the 2016 Draft, Chicago continues to raise the bar for future Drafts."

With an outdoor festival atmosphere anchored by "Draft Town" in Chicago's Grant Park, the three-day event drew 200,000 people, including related fan activities, in 2015. The league announced Tuesday that "Draft Town" will be expanding in 2016. The first three rounds of the 2015 draft were held in the Auditorium Theatre before the event moved outdoors for Rounds 4-7 on its final day.

The draft moved from New York City's Radio City Music Hall to Chicago, where it had not been held since 1964.

The league announced it will develop a selection process to determine the locations of drafts beyond the 2016 event, and that Chicago will be among the cities under consideration.


We obtained a video of an unarmed man who gets out of the vehicle and says shoot me with his hands held high.  The FBI gunned him down as he posed no threat.

The video link is below and is very graphic in nature. Viewer discretion is advised.


On Tuesday, investigators released their findings regarding the fatal Jan. 26 police shooting of Malheur National Wildlife Refuge occupier LaVoy Finicum.LaVoy, 54, quickly became the voice of the protestors during the occupation, giving mainstream media interviews and statements live from the refuge. According to an autopsy released on Tuesday, he was hit in the back by three rounds fired by two Oregon State Troopers, one piercing his heart.

FBI agent is suspected of lying about firing twice at Robert "LaVoy" Finicum and may have gotten help from four other FBI agents in covering up afterward, authorities revealed Tuesday.

The bullets didn't hit Finicum and didn't contribute to his death, but now all five unnamed agents, part of an elite national unit, are under criminal investigation by the U.S. Justice Department. Inspector General Michael Horowitz is leading the independent inquiry.

On the day of the shooting, Lavoy, Ammon Bundy and several other occupiers with the Citizens for Constitutional Freedom were traveling to the city of John Day for a community meeting set up by local residents.

They were pulled over on U.S. Highway 395 by the Oregon State Police and the FBI. Officials said at the time that in an attempt to minimize violence, they had been waiting for an opportunity to arrest the group’s leadership away from the refuge.

Officials said Tuesday that prosecutors deemed the shooting “justified and necessary,” and claimed that LaVoy kept moving his hands towards his pocket which contained a loaded 9mm handgun.

The Citizens for Constitutional Freedom have steadily maintained that Lavoy was unarmed during his death and have called the shooting a “cold-blooded assassination,” and the FBI “liars.” They said that, “LaVoy’s guns were left at the compound” evidenced by the fact that his personal pistol can be seen in videos from the refuge after he was killed.

In new footage released on Tuesday, which syncs up cellphone video recorded from inside the vehicle during the shooting with aerial FBI footage that had already released, Lavoy is heard shouting, “just shoot me,” to the cops before he is killed.

This gives credence to claims made by one of the passengers that he “got out to try to keep the attention focused on him so that they would not shoot at the women in the vehicle.”

I don't know about you but if I as the chick I would have said I'll fuck you too. Lol

MACCLENNY, Fla. -- A 29-year-old Florida woman faces a felony sex charge after she was allegedly caught in the shower with her friend's 15-year-old son -- by the boy's father.

Ciara Danielle Stokes, 29, of Faye Road, remains in custody at the Baker County Jail on a charge of lewd and lascivious act on a child following her arrest Feb. 11, according to the Baker County Sheriff's Office.

Stokes, identified by an arrest report as a waitress at Jacksonville's Gold Club, stopped by her friend's home about 10:30 p.m. Feb. 4 to take a shower because she didn't have running water in her camper, according to the report.

The teen told investigators Stokes initially used his phone to browse Facebook for about an hour and then the pair watched TV for another half-hour. Afterward, the teen said, Stokes invited him into the shower with her.

While they were showering, sexual activity allegedly occurred. The teen told investigators. "I have never been put in that position before and I didn't know how to get out of it," he said.

At some point, the commotion woke up his father, who barged in and ordered both of them out of the bathroom, the teen told investigators. Then, the teen said, his father demanded that Stokes leave.

Stokes told investigators she was drunk and didn't recall "everything" that had taken place but acknowledged kissing the 15-year-old, saying "it was a bad mistake," according to the report.


suburbs attempted to help his daughter find a husband by placing an advertisement in Christianity Today.

The ad was titled “Son-in-Law, Wheaton, IL.” The father says in the ad that he is a Chicagoland chief financial officer and church elder. He describes his daughter as a “godly, gorgeous, athletic, educated, careered, humorous, travelled and bi-lingual 26-year-old virgin.”

While the ad appeared in the magazine’s March print edition, it has been removed from its website. Christianity Today editor Mark Galli said the ad had not been properly reviewed before it was included in the print edition. If it had, it would not have been printed, he said, regardless of intent. The ad was removed online.

“It’s a man who is trying to market his daughter,” Galli told the Chicago Tribune. “It’s demeaning in this day and age.”

In a blog that has since been taken down, the daughter who is referenced in the ad discussed what happened. She said she did not know about it in advance, though her father had hinted beforehand that he was trying to play matchmaker.

“She is taking this very graciously,” Galli said. “What daughter hasn’t rolled her eyes at something her father did?”


CHICAGO -- A new lawsuit filed on behalf of a homeless man in Chicago will be the first to test a new state law.

The Bill of Rights for the Homeless Act was passed in 2013.

It maintains that a homeless person's property out on the street has the same right to privacy as property in a permanent home.

According to The Sun-Times, the Coalition for the Homeless filed the lawsuit against the city. They represent Robert Henderson.

His belongings, including medication and identification, were thrown away by city workers in November

(CNN)  Donald Trump on Tuesday addressed criticism of a new practice at his rallies that has been compared to the "Heil" salute from Nazi Germany, dismissing the controversy as "ridiculous" before saying he would look into ending it.

"I don't know about the Hitler comparison. I hadn't heard that, but it's a terrible comparison. I'm not happy about that certainly," Trump said on ABC's "Good Morning America."


Just before Marco Rubio’s 19th birthday, police reports show that a cop was sent to Alice C. Wainwright Park in Miami, Florida.

he violated the municipal code rules about drinking in a park. However, the police incident report never mentions alcohol!

Instead, Marco was arrested for being in a car after the park’s closing time with his male friend Angel Barrios. To locals, the park was well-known as a place for homosexuals for cruising.

Now Senator Marco Rubio’s (R-FL) presidential campaign, which is already in bad shape. The newest woman listed as Rubio’s mistress is apparently a blonde lobbyist named Dana Hudson, a specialist in Homeland Security issues.


It is with sadness that a lady of class has passed away. Nancy Regan will be laid to rest at the Regan Library at 2pm California time. She will be rejoined with her husband President Ronald Reagan.

May the sun shine warm upon your face;
the rains fall soft upon your fields and until we meet again,
may God hold you in the palm of His hand.

It is with a sad heart that I inform the followers that What's on the sarges mind has been sold and will be keeping the name as well as the look for now. Changes are in play but nothing in stone.

Phil has decided to step down so he can spend time with his family. The story line will be better and Phil has promised to share our stories as a follower.

The sale was yesterday March 6, 2016.
For the amount of 100.00 bucks


Total Security Management is a security firm that was based in Canada with 1 U.S. office that opened in 2005. Since then TSM was sold to Garda World and the U.S. office is ran out of Oakbrook Terrace, Illinois. Under the leadership of Craig Cambell TSM was one of the employee friendly companies to work for.  But once the company sold the President then turned to Tony Guy Arcaro. TSM brings in about 10 to 20 million dollars a year and employs 100 to 260.

TSM under the direction of Mr. Arcaro grew into 3 states and will be most likely changing the name of the company because that was a sale agreement according to Garda World.

Since Mr. Arcaro has been in charge TSM was sued in the state of Wisconsin by a employee Raychelle Freeman.

 WILLIAM M. CONLEY, District Judge.

Plaintiffs Raychelle Freeman and Bobby Dean, Sr., bring this suit on behalf of themselves and a putative class of employees of Total Security Management, Inc., alleging that they were required to do pre-shift work and attend work-related training without compensation, both in violation of the Fair Labor Standards Act (FLSA), 29 U.S.C. § 201 et seq., and applicable state wage and hour laws. Plaintiffs seek monetary damages in the form of unpaid wages and, where applicable, overtime pay. Plaintiffs now move for conditional certification of (1) a nationwide class of employees who attended mandatory or job-related trainings without compensation, and (2) a Wisconsin-only class of employees allegedly required to do unpaid work before their regular shift. Plaintiffs also move to strike some of defendants' evidence submitted in opposition to the class certification motion.

For the reasons set forth below, the court will partially grant and partially modify plaintiffs' motion for class certification, conditionally certifying (1) a nationwide class of employees who were not compensated for attending training directly related to their jobs;

(2) a Wisconsin class of employees who were not compensated for attending mandatory trainings on the use of work equipment; and (3) a Wisconsin class of employees who were not compensated for mandatory, pre-shift work. As a preliminary matter, the court will also deny plaintiffs' motion to strike.


Defendants contest plaintiffs' motion for conditional certification, arguing that there is no common employer policy or practice that connects the representative plaintiffs to members of the proposed class. In support, defendants filed declarations of various employees, each averring that he or she has not been subject to the alleged policies. Plaintiffs seek to strike portions of two such declarations on evidentiary grounds, pointing out that affidavits submitted in support of a motion for conditional certification must comply with the Federal Rules of Evidence. See Berndt v. Cleary Building Corp, W.D. Wis. No. 11-cv-791-wmc (citing Sjoblom v. Charter Comm., LLC, No. 3:07-cv-451-bbc, 2007 WL 4560541, at *10 (W.D. Wis. Dec. 19, 2007)).

First, plaintiffs contest the bolded sentence in paragraph 7, sentence 3 in the declaration by Charles Freeman, set forth below:

7. Since starting with TSM, I have not taken any training for baton, OC spray, handcuffs, or firearms. My supervisors, Dan and Ryan, told me that I could take this training if I wanted to, but I told them no thanks and they said okay. The way I see it, I don't need training on these items because I don't plan to ever work at any of the bank branch locations where Protection officers may carry this equipment. Neither Dan nor Ryan, nor anyone else at TSM, told me that I would be disciplined or terminated if I didn't take this training, and I have not received any discipline for not taking this training.
Plaintiffs assert that the bolded statement is speculative and irrelevant, and thus inadmissible under Federal Rules of Evidence 602 and 401. The court disagrees. The testimony is not speculative in that Freeman is simply explaining why he chose to forego training that would not help him. This sort of opinion is within Freeman's competence, provides appropriate background, and is not prejudicial to plaintiffs. As for the relevance of this opinion, defendants' legal duty to compensate for training attendance may depend on whether the trainings were directly related to an employee's current job duties (as discussed in more detail in the following analysis). Mr. Freeman's testimony at least indirectly sheds light on this issue. Defendants' motion to strike this bolded sentence will be denied.

Second, plaintiffs contest the bolded phrase in the final sentence of paragraph 6 in the Second, plaintiffs contest the bolded phrase in the final sentence of paragraph 6 in the declaration of Santiago Zarate as set forth below:

6. TSM offers company-sponsored trainings to Protection officers. I have attended training on batons, OC spray, handcuffs, and firearms. I did not have to pay anything to attend these trainings. I have received certificates or cards for completing these trainings, and I believe that I could use these certificates or cards to work for other companies or organizations.
Plaintiffs contend that this bolded phrase statement is inadmissible under Federal Rule of Evidence 602 as speculation, because defendants have not laid a foundation as to the basis for Mr. Zarate's belief that he can use these certificates for other employment. However, no foundation is needed because Mr. Zarate is averring his belief, not reality. Because it is only his belief, the statement is admittedly of minimal relevance, and therefore will be accorded less weight, but the court will not strike it.


A. Parties

Defendant Total Security Management, Inc. ("TSM, Inc.") is a holding company that owns and directs state-level TSM entities in Wisconsin, Illinois, Indiana, Missouri and Arizona. Under this umbrella, defendants Total Security Management - Wisconsin, LLC (TSM - Wisconsin), Total Security Management - Illinois 1 (TSM - Illinois), and Total Security Management - Indiana (TSM - Indiana) are all limited liability companies in the business of private security. Each company contracts to provide security guards - "Protection Officers" - to banks and other businesses in their respective states. Defendant TSM - Illinois also operates as something of a headquarters for the other state-level branches, providing back-office support.

The named plaintiffs in this case are Raychelle Freeman, who worked for defendant TSM - Wisconsin as a Protection Officer, and Bobby Dean, Sr., who worked for defendant TSM - Illinois as a Protection Officer, Site Supervisor, and Field Supervisor in the Chicagoland area covering locations in Illinois and Indiana.

B. Mandatory and Job-Related Training

Raychelle Freeman avers that she was required (1) to carry handcuffs, pepper spray and a baton on the job, and (2) to know how to use these items to deal with intruders and to make arrests, if necessary. Freeman also avers that she was required to attend without compensation company-sponsored trainings for handcuff, pepper spray, and baton use. Bobby Dean, Sr., avers that he was required to carry handcuffs, a baton, pepper spray and a handgun on the job. He further avers that he was required to attend, but was not compensated for, "various training classes, including handcuffing, [pepper] spray, baton, and handgun use." On the basis of this testimony, both plaintiffs assert that they are entitled to compensation for time spent training in the use of work equipment because: (1) the trainings were not voluntary; and (2) the trainings are directly related to their jobs.

The named plaintiffs allege that other employees within their respective state-level TSM branches, as well as employees at all other TSM state branches, were similarly required to attend work-relevant and/or mandatory trainings without compensation. Pursuant to 29 U.S.C. § 216(b), plaintiffs therefore seek to represent the following plaintiff class:

All persons who have been or are employed by Total Security Management - Illinois 1, LLC, and/or Total Security Management, Inc. as a protection officer at any time during the past three years anywhere in the United States, and who were not compensated for time spent in attendance at company sponsored trainings.
(Third Am. Compl., dkt. #85-1, ¶13.)

Defendants admit to not compensating plaintiffs, or any other protection officers, who attend such trainings. However, they deny ever requiring employees to take such training. They also deny that this type of weapons/restraints training is directly related to any Protection Officer's job.

C. Pre-Shift Work

Plaintiff Raychelle Freeman also avers that she was required by TSM - Wisconsin's Director of Operations, Ryan Weber, to report to work 15 minutes before the beginning of her daily paid shift, performed work during this time, and was not compensated for this extra work. She alleges that all other protection officers working in Wisconsin were subject to the same policy and seeks to represent the following plaintiffs class pursuant to 29 U.S.C. § 216(b):

All persons who have been or are employed by Total Security Management - Wisconsin, LLC, Total Security Management - Illinois 1, LLC, and/or Total Security Management, Inc. in Wisconsin as a protection officer at any time during the past three years, and who were required to perform work at the beginning of their shift without compensation and/or to attend uncompensated company sponsored trainings.
(Third Am. Compl., dkt. #85-1, ¶14.)

With respect to Freeman's allegations about unpaid pre-shift work, defendants deny that she or any other employees have been required to arrive at work before their official shift. They further assert that employees are always encouraged to report all time worked and are paid accordingly.


I. Legal Standard for Conditional Certification

A. Two-Step Framework

Section 216(b) of the FLSA authorizes plaintiffs to bring a "collective action" against an employer to recover unpaid compensation for themselves and on behalf of "other employees similarly situated." 29 U.S.C. § 216(b). Unlike a typical class action lawsuit under Federal Rule of Civil Procedure 23, where an unwilling plaintiff must "opt out" of the class, a collective action brought pursuant to Section 216(b) of the FLSA requires employees or former employees to "opt in" by filing a written consent to join the action. Woods v. N.Y. Life Ins. Co., 686 F.2d 578, 579-80 (7th Cir. 1982). In light of this special "opt-in" requirement, most courts (including this one) apply a two-step approach to certifying collective actions. Austin v. CUNA Mut. Ins. Soc., 232 F.R.D. 601, 605 (W.D. Wis. 2006).

At the first "conditional" step of certification, a plaintiff need only make "a modest factual showing" that she and potential class members are similarly situated. Id. Conditional certification is typically made only on the basis of the plaintiff's allegations and supporting sworn statements. Courts need not consider rebuttal evidence submitted by the defendant. See id. at 606 ("[t]he proper focus at this stage is on plaintiff's submissions"); Barrus v. Dick's Sporting Goods, Inc., 465 F.Supp.2d 224 (W.D.N.Y. 2006) (rejecting contradictory affidavits from defendants at notice stage). Courts may consider such defendant-submitted evidence, but should give it dispositive weight only where the plaintiff's showing is already very weak. E.g., West v. Border Foods, Inc., Civil No. 05-2525 (DWF/RLE), 2006 WL 1892527, 2006 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 46506, at *7 (D. Minn. July 10, 2006) ("[N]either the remedial purposes of the FLSA, nor the interests of judicial economy, would be advanced if we were to overlook facts [supplied by a defendant] which generally suggest that a collective action is improper."). When courts choose to consider contradictory evidence at the conditional certification stage, all disputed issues of fact are decided in favor of the plaintiff. Severtson v. Phillips Beverage Co., 141 F.R.D. 276, 278-79 (D. Minn. 1992).

Unlike a typical plaintiff who files for conditional certification at the outset in advance of any discovery, defendants suggest that an "intermediate standard" of scrutiny should apply here because plaintiffs have had the opportunity to conduct some discovery. An intermediate standard may be appropriate when a court has expressly allowed "discovery on the issue of whether the plaintiffs are similarly situated" and the plaintiffs have been given access to a "list of other... potential members of the proposed class." Bunyan v. Spectrum Brands, Inc., No. 07-CV-0089-MJR, 2008 WL 2959932, 2008 U.S. Dist. LEXIS 59278, at *4 (S.D. Ill. July 31, 2008). But that is not the case here. Plaintiffs have had limited discovery, deposing two of defendants' corporate representatives and some of defendants' employee witnesses. Notably, they have not been permitted discovery into the matters that are most useful to establishing conditional certification - access to a list of fellow employees at other locations. Therefore, an intermediate standard is inappropriate at this stage. Accord, Renfro v. Spartan Comp. Servs., Inc., 243 F.R.D. 431, 434 n. 4 (D. Kan. 2007) ("[T]he Court is not inclined to apply the heightened second stage certification analysis on the minimal amount of discovery before it.").

If an adequate showing is made at this first step, the court conditionally certifies a class and authorizes notice to potential class members. Kelly v. Bluegreen Corp., 256 F.R.D. 626, 629 (W.D. Wis. 2009). At the close of discovery, and upon a motion for decertification from the defendant, the court conducts the more rigorous second step of the analysis, weighing the evidence submitted by both sides and determining whether the plaintiffs are in fact similarly-situated to those who have opted in. Id.

TSM even after this still violates labor laws. We received documents from the Illinois Department of Labor that supervisors are working anywhere between 70 to 90 hours a week. The company stated that their staff doesn't work no more then 12 to 16 hours a day. Yet when we saw the IDOL report officers are working 6 sometime 7 days straight violating the 1 day rest law and violating their own company policy.

We noticed a handful of employees including upper management worked for Intercon.
Intercon Security was disciplined on license # 127-000852 we are looking in to why.

The company has mid management drive 8 to 16 hours but if they have a post open and can not be filled then these managers work it. Now these officers and mid management are armed driving either home or back to the office falling asleep and using poor judgment behind the wheel. One former employee stated he was promised things if he got one site going and the company never fulfilled the agreement. Another employee stated that the company doesn't inform officers about time off requests nor allows anyone any time to sleep.

TSM also tells employees it is volunteer to do the training for non lethal weapons but yet tells the employees they will be pulled from their site if they don't complete the training.  We asked Illinois Department of Professional Financial Regulations and they informed us that as long as you have a Permanent Employee Registration Card or P.E.R.C. that you can legally carry on your person a baton, OC, and cuffs without any repercussions. They also stated that the person using them can be sued though if not used properly.

Please see for yourself in the pictures and leave comments.

We have reason to believe that a Marine Vet lives at 832 W. 79th street. This apartment building was built in 1982.
We believe that it is violation of NFPA  ( National Fire Protection Act ) we also believe it is out of code and that the sprinkler system or suppression system doesn't work. There is 1 hot water tank for the whole building. We also notice the entrances are not in compliance with the American Disabilities Act of 1991.
