What Our Brother Blogger In Chicago Says About Cedric The Entertainer. God Speed Chicago P.D.

From Second City Cop

Superintendent Names Leaking
  • The African-American public safety director of DeKalb County, Georgia, outside Atlanta, has emerged as a front-runner to replace fired Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy, sources said Thursday.

    Cedric Alexander is a high-ranking official in the National Organization of Black Law Enforcement Executives and holds a doctoral degree in clinical psychology and a master’s degree in marriage and family therapy.

    His resume includes stints as police chief of Rochester, New York, deputy commissioner of the New York State Police and security director for the Transportation Security Administration at Dallas/Fort Worth International Airport.
Golly, another outsider. It's almost like the past decade of incompetent "merit" promotions have driven away anyone actually capable of advancing through the ranks. If that doesn't tell you everything you need to know about this Department at the moment, nothing will.

Those Pesky Disclosures

Posted on GeorgiaPol on

There is a Democratic primary for District Attorney in DeKalb County, pitting the incumbent Robert James against the current county solicitor Sherry Boston.

First, Richard Hyde – of Mike Bowers/Richard Hyde fame investigating the County – contributed to Robert’s campaign in the middle of the DeKalb investigation (Robert was the focus of part of the investigation).

 See disclosure here:
hyde line robert james
Bowers/Hyde report was issued on September 30, 2015, which is two months after this contribution was made.

So while the District Attorney (among others) was being investigated by Hyde, he solicited (presumably), was given, and accepted, a contribution from the investigator. That’s odd at best.
Second, Chris Chestnut contributed to Robert’s campaign 8 days after Robert indicted a police officer for killing Anthony Hill (the naked veteran who the police officer allegedly killed).  Chestnut represents Hill’s estate (or family).  So, 8 days after an indictment, the attorney for the victim’s family makes a contribution to the DA who brought the charges . . .

Here is the Chris Chestnut contribution
chestnut disclosure robert james

Robert James indicted Officer Robert Olson on 1/21.
This contribution was made 8 days later.

And this is why you read disclosures. All kinds of fun stuff in there. They are like a Selena Montgomery novel.

City of Brookhaven Seeks Payday Loan

The Brookhaven City Council will discuss consideration and approval of a short term loan for $3,500,000 during the city council meeting 7 p.m. Tuesday at Brookhaven City Hall, 4362 Peachtree Road.

The city would use the money to pay bills while waiting for tax revenue to be available. Those funds aren’t expected until close to the end of the fiscal year.

Another agenda item considered is the Intergovernmental Agreement with Georgia Department of Transportation and MARTA for the Peachtree Road Livable Center Initiative for pedestrian and streetscape improvements. The council will also consider approval of the revision to the city’s Paid Time Off and Sick Time Benefits Policy.

We'll See

Raises may be on the way for DeKalb police officers and firefighters, who have long complained that pay is a primary reason the county losing public safety employees to nearby departments.

The DeKalb Commission plans to vote Thursday on a $1.32 billion annual budget that includes pay raises of at least 4 percent for public safety, sanitation and watershed employees. In all, about 2,800 government employees — nearly half the county’s workforce — would receive higher paychecks starting in May.

Dr. Alexander and DeKalb Fire Condone Lying Against Police

A Stone Mountain police officer is clearly a victim of false accusations, down right lies, against him.

As the video clearly shows, 2 of DeKalb's finest fire employees made up allegations so strong, without the video, he faced suspension or termination.

Doc Cedric is in charge of the fire department. So why have these 2 employees, Captain Terrell Davis and Krystal Cathcart not been fired yet? Why have they not been arrested yet for false report?

Who is this idiot Chief D.D. Fullum? He  says "the incident involves Stone Mountain Police but If  any other information arises and warrants further attention he will be happy to look into it further."
WTF? They lied! And they lied against a fellow police officer! What more does he need?

And just a couple of more questions: Was this fire Captain Terrell Davis on duty when he was pulled over? Even though he was in a private vehicle? Sure looks like he is wearing a fire bubba hat. And why was Ms. Krystal Cathcart following him wearing her fire department garb and credentials? Was she suppose to be at work? Are they married? To each other?

When we brought up the question if they were on their way to a rendezvous, someone made the comment, "surely not, 'cause she's skank ass ugly."

So is this whole situation.

Pension Contributions to Increase

Our pension contributions are on the rise.

 If you were employed before September 1, 2005, your's will increase to 10.48%. If you were employed after that, its's increasing to 8.51%.

 Yes, with the new city hoods refusing to contribute to our pension, eventhough we protected them for years, the pension fund has to be funded, putting more of the burden on us.

 But whatever happened to the pay study? The county can come up with millions of dollars for a soccer field, but they can't seem to find the money for a overdue raise.
