Chief Cedric Summoned To Lee May's Office

It looks like Lee May asked Chief Cedric to determine whether Burrell's security detail was needed. Suddenly Cedric decided to cancel the detail.

Makes you wonder how the conversation went.

How embarrassing for the Chief, to have the acting CEO have to tell him how to properly utilize his manpower. Pathetic...

Why the hell does a politician gotta tell the Chief of Police how to handle his dept. and man power? Oh yea we don't have a Chief....JUST another puppet, and now a NEW Puppet Master. Hey Mr. Acting CEO wanna make a difference and see what the Chief is made of? Get out of his business and turn him loose. Let's see if all that education is worth the paper it's printed on. Turn him loose to run the Police Dept. You handle business down in Decatur, and let's see what he can do. After all he is the Chief of the department. Or is he?

I agree the CEO needs to let the chief run the police department, but not this chief he was hand picked by a criminal who can't be trusted. We need a real chief not one that is a puppet or a coward. I don't care what race creed or color the new chief just let him/her be a real cop and a honest respectable person.

You all want to blame the Chief when it's clear his hand was being forced! The politicians are the problem here!

I would wish I could have seen Ellis peeking through his curtains as the unit drove off. "Hey, hey! Where you going? Come back! Come back!"

I think he's already clearly shown his character. Spineless...

@ 10:59 pm, too funny.

I bet Burrell hire private security with all that kickback money.

He's afraid to drive, so who's going to drive his punk a$$ around?

A real chief would not have taken the job in first place. Not under those conditions. Just like a real cop would not have worked the baby sitting detail after he was charged, without making a stand and taking a write-up. You must stand for something or you will fall for anything.

Come on you guy's give the chief a damn chance. He is new... The negative comments about a brand new police chief are stupid. It sounds like you will trash whoever is in that position. From a smart ass white boy.

Don't let the BOC "DETROIT" our pension. We contributed to it year after year. We are not union. We did not get more than we deserved. We were reasonable. Don' let the BOC trash our pension ......Keep these political idiots away from out pension.

This action by the Acting CEO ought to save the county a ton of money, increase a little of the low moral, and then take a hard look at what the Doctor Chief can really do.

Any chief is nothing more than a figurehead in any department. It is the Assistant Chief or Chiefs that run the agency.

If the current Chief is nothing more than a high paid figurehead who sometimes likes to throw around his power, then he will do so.

As far as the indicted CEO is concerned, he has a long wait to find out his fate, and hopefully it will mean that he will changing his space for something less desirable than what he is accustomed to. Politics is like a thunderstorm as you will never know what is going to prevail.

Anonymous said...

White Boy I agree. Im sick and tired of people coming on here and trashing the Chief. He had no choice but to provide officers to the CEO. Why did he take the job, that's a stupid question. It pays good and anybody who has confidence in their ability's will try and fix a problem. From another long time White Boy.

To Anon 8:43:
If it's the assistant chiefs who really run this department, we are truly done. Take a look at the incompetence in some of our chiefs. One who thinks he makes his own rules and stops a drug investigation on his secretary while costing the county money by questioning K9 and making a dog recertify ($$$) who did its job. Then having every officer involved investigated.....and that's just one example. SO really if the assistant chief's are running this place----run like hell.

Once again they seem to fail to realize that if you support your PD, we support you in return. Keep playing us for fools and we'll keep having you replaced. It's that simple...

Let's hope May's immediate actions prove he's not going to tolerate all the obvious corruption strife in Dekalb and prove to be a worthy CEO. The clock is ticking.

July 19 - 8:14 -- Agree with you completely. I am sick of the negative attitude of a few on this blog, including the administrator. It's gone way beyond the point of productive venting. Some of you blame the BOC for everything, including your pension, which they have little to do with. In 2 days, May has done 2 things - he removed the security detail from Ellis's house. KUDOS CEO May! He is pursuing legislation to change the county form of government from CEO to county manager. KUDOS to CEO May! I suppose some of the really negative posters will still not get my point. Change your attitude, dig a little deeper, and you will see things in a better perspective.

Anonymous said...

I agree. It's a positive that officers are no longer guarding Ellis. We need to acknowledge the good along with the bad.

Anonymous said...

When it comes to Dekalb County there are ZERO people that can be trusted!! There are a few good officers, other than that it's crooked ass perps running the show! Starting from the top with the CEO, down to the Sergants, there is more criminal and shady behavior than any perp on the street! Watch your back guys and girls, you could be the next victim to be throw out to the wolves on a whim!

LoFlyer said...

Anon 2:21; I beg to differ on the BOC's influence over the pension fund. The BOC approves county contributions to the pension fund, and consistently refused to fund the agreed county contribution whilst the employees have always paid there agreed pension contribution.
As for the chief and the CEO security detail, how could the chief refuse to provide a security detail for CEO Ellis with the probability of being fired for refusing to protect the CEO's residence?
All this security crap for the CEO/BOC started with the assassination of Derwin Brown. 911 was an excuse to increase security for our elected politicians.
The fact is that security is expensive, ineffective, and insulates the politicians from the citizens.
There are facilities such as the CH and RC that requires effective security that the DKSO admirably performs.
It is past time to dismantle the DeKalb "executive security detail", the metal detectors, the card keys that insulate DeKalb leadership from their constituents and clients.
This sux, mates!

Question to the blog administrator, why do you refer to our Chief as "chief cedrick", like he's a boy?????? I don't recall you refering to Chief O'brien as "chief billy" or "chief william". I know what the reason is and so do others. But can't you hide it a little better so it's not so obvious????? Just Saying...........You are disrespectful and I know you won't dare post this blog as you will continue to hide behind your sheet, whoops, I meant blogsite.

Dear Anon July 20 8:58,

The reason we refer to Chief Cedric as such is; he is chief and his name is Cedric.

Plus it has a catchy ring to it.

Thank you for reading!

Loflyer is right about the County and their contributions. Imagine giving 25-30 years of your life to a government agency, only to be crapped on when you started retirement. Think of all the vacations and family events you missed and all of the sacrifices you made over the years.
A State judge in Michigan said that Detroit had to honor its' pension benefits. But, Detroit can go to the Federal courts and the expectation is that the employees and pensioners will receive 10 cents on the dollar. So, if you were expecting a $50,000 a year pension, now you'll get $5,000 a year, which translates down to about $415 a month. The Federal courts aren't sympathetic, because their pensions are paid by the government, so they'll get their pensions.
The media is not sympathetic either, as all of the news pundits on all of the national stations consistently push gutting government pensions.
The public isn't sympathetic since most of them don't have a pension and feel that government workers don't deserve a pension.
The PBGC (Pension Benefit Guaranty Corp) does not oversee government pension plans, so government employees are at the mercy of the courts.
Better start saving your money and investing it!

Lets see here the CEO is drawing a check which means he may return one day. That's why Dr. Chief Cedric is holding out hope and didn't pull the officers right away. Why you ask because,
#1. He is going to court in DeKalb and probably will beat the rap.
#2. His lawyers are better than the county's.
#3. I think the fix is in much like a rasslin match on TV.
#4. Why no RICO?
#5. Why no federal court ?
#6. Really did he roll over on someone else and that's why he needs the protection. Think about it. Why else the venue and charges are what they are. Or has he been given a chance to roll over and he is scared someone will go all SIDNEY-DORSREY on him.
#8. Where is the 1st grand jury report?
Folks don't think this is a done deal because it is not. I know I have put some big conspiracy theories in front of you but hey you are cops none of this looks funny or shady to you?
Forgot #9 Why is Stogner still hanging around? Was he not on the CEO's staff who you use to give a lot of crap to? Why would you let him back? Did you need his help to maybe make more money for yourself? Guess he fooled you Urkel maybe he is the deep throat informant to James. He Got You or someone did ! Can't wait for the show in Decatur to start to see what is real !

Anonymous said...

Everyone wanted to blame the Chief for the security detail on the CEO's house. At the end of the day, he has to answer to his boss just like you have to answer to yours. Some battles just aren't worth fighting. Ellis is gone, now so is the security detail. Would it have been good a idea for the Chief to get himself fired over it? Would you get yourself fired for insubordination when you knew your boss wouldn't be around much longer and it wouldn't be an issue anymore? Sometimes you win by not fighting.

re;anom--7/20--8:58.(F.Y.I.--this blogmaster critique's every thing on this blog,more than equally/fairly.Hey,he/she,put your ridiculous comment on here)! WHY DOE'S EVERYTHING FRICKING THING THAT HAPPEN'S OR IS SAID ALWAY'S,W/O FAIL,HAVE TO BE ABOUT RACE!! Let's ponder this issue. Chief R.D.Hand was called "Dick". Chief R.T.Burgess was called "Bobby". Chief T.E.Brown was called "Tom". Chief E.J.Moody was called "Eddie".(I don't even want to think about Graham,or Bolton)! Chief W.O'Brien was called "O.B". Soooooooooo,wait for it,waaaait for it!! Chief C.Alexander is called "Cedric"!!(because that's his name,you idiot)! Contrary to what your pathetic,paranoid,excuse making,race baiting,prejudice/hating ass think's,the"sheet wearing" folk's are as ignored,and ineffectual as the black panther party.They are no longer required,simply because we have people "like you",to fill the void!! You and your ilk don't do anything but tear down what little relationship's and love that we all have left for each other at this P.D.(much less in society). YES,we complain about preferential treatment,assignment's,and promotion's,but it is done by black's and white's as well,because it impact's everybody. NO,it does not have one single,solitary thing to do with race. It's all about competenc
y,honesty,professionalism,and qualification's. GOD help me,but I hate people like you. I alway's have,and I probably alway's will,just because of sorry son of a bitches,just like you! YOU HAVE MADE ME ME FEEL THIS WAY!! IT MUST BE TERRIBLE, TO HAVE TO WAKE UP EVERY,SINGLE DAY OF YOUR MISERABLE,HATE FILLED LIFE,AND HAVE TO BE YOU!!(if I thought you had the slightest,most minute,single thread of self respect,intelligence,or decency,"I WOULD TELL YOU TO BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF). But,since I obviously don't,this is as basic as I can break it down for you. KISS MY ASS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

Seriously? You're going to criticize Old Warhorse for his writing, spelling and command of the English language. First, pits does not have two t's. Look in the dictionary. Secondly, "go back to school and get some education" is not a complete sentence and the word usage is incorrect. Before you judge, please educate yourself on correct spelling, sentence structure and word usage. If you can not do that, focus on the content of the message.

After reading the content of several of these posts, and once again, VOMITING, because I still cannot believe I spent an entire career as a DeKalb County Police Officer, what a pleasant suprise it is to read your comments. Based on them, you are without a doubt an "old school" Dekalb Officer and I love and respect you!

Dekalb County has always been corruptand unethical. I am tired about reading of the good ole days. One thing is true. When we had F. D Hand as director we had the best training in the state and best equipment in the nation. We were also the highest paid agency in the state.
Do some research: The 1980 consent decree for quotas,Corn Killing, Hotel prsotitution scandal, The 1995 Lawsuit settlement that, brought Auburn into the promotion process, The click either you were in or out. Please stop the bullshit. The problem is the officers are working harder and paid much less and the equipment sucks

re;7/22--09:31. YOU must be the same bitter,hateful,little person who called me name's last time. Calm down,easy,eeeeasy! You have got to stop getting yourself all worked up over the truth. Look at your-self. Little fists all balled up,teeth clenched,veins popping out,hyper-ventilating,blood pressure spiked. Stop holding your breath until your little face turns purple,throwing yourself in the floor ,kicking and screaming. Research coping programs,like stress management. I will call Anger Management,and see if they will let you come back now. Remember to do your calming techniques everyday,or every time I piss you off. Light your candles,assume the lotus position,correct posture. Proper finger position. Go to your "happy place",and repeat your mantra,"ohmmmm-I refuse to let old warhorse mentally control me-ohmmmm!! It "ain't" my fault. You let me in your brain,and I am going to stay there. Matter of fact, I'm going to invite all of my like minded friends in for the "mother" of all choir practices. 99 % of us will continue to like and support each other,regardless of what you think.

anom 9:57 . After this,let's just "all" move on. No! Stop!! Please stop!!! Are you saying you can actually sink to a lower intellectual level than this?? Your second msg.,unbelievably,is much worse than the first. At first I thought you were just ignorant. Now you have more than proven that you are illiterate as well. Thank God it is impossible to committ suicide by means of attempted communication.(if so,it's body bag time). If you cannot communicate any better on paper than previously attempted,I can not even begin to imagine how difficult it would be to try to have an intelligent conversation with you. I'll be the bigger man,and try to locate some kindergarten paper for you to practice your alphabet on(Aa,Bb,Cc,Dd)!! I will also borrow one of my grandkid's elementary books regarding "very basic writing skills"(feel free to keep both.No,you really,really,really need to keep them.You obviously need them much more than they do). Please,tell me that you are not an officer in my beloved department. If so,you will never win any type of criminal case,much less a recorder's court case.(I can't believe you dont get your ass whipped @ work everyday)! ALL CAPITALIZED LETTERS,MISSPELLED WORD'S,IMPROPER/INCOMPLETE SENTENCE STRUCTURE. Please apply for any and all available remedial courses for your obvious,embarrassing deficiency. Maybe you have not heard of a common assistance device available on all computer services,uhhh,SPELL-CHECK!! If not,borrow a dictionary. If that doesn't help,there is alway's special ed.! Just a word of advice. Be competent,or at least marginally proficient in your alleged area of expertise,before you embarrass yourself like this again. People might suspect,but will never be sure just how really stupid you are,until you either attempt to write something down again,or open your mouth. Hopefully,all of this would not have been as bad,if you would not have been in such a big hurry to be a dick !! Just saying.
