Lt’s Promotion Exam: UPDATE 16 May 07

From the CPSA website:

On Wednesday, 16 May 2007 we filed a lawsuit in Cook County Circuit Court seeking an injunction blocking the City of Chicago from conducting a Re-Test on 23 June 07. Some of the issues addressed in the complaint are based on the proposed format of the test to utilize the same test scenarios, fairness of the process, participants’ unavailability on the test date, and scores not made available to participants.

In addition, The Chicago Police Sergeants’ Association issued a Press Release stating that we feel this proposed Re-Test is grossly unfair to our affected members and challenges the integrity of the promotional process.

If you wish to forward your comments you may do so by any of the following:

The new idea is to promote all applicants who took part two of the test. Over 500 Sergeants took part two, how long will that take

Did anyone actually go to the PBPA meeting Thursday night? What's the story?

The sergeants also allege that the retest will feature the same videotaped scenarios and questions as the Jan. 6 exam, giving repeat test-takers an advantage.

B.S. Just because the questions stay the same does not mean the ANSWERS will stay the same!

I was the principal organizer for litigation in the original EXAMSCAM for the rank of lieutenant.

I also sued the City of Chicago for retaliating against me for exercising my First Amendment rights to speak out on "matters of public concern". See Northen v. City of Chicago (126 F.3d 1024).

E-mail me if I can provide any assistance in dealing with these shameless, arrogant and corrupt muthafuckers.

I still find this whole mess incredible, in that they still want us to think it's all legit. What a joke. All B.S.

Just thought you would like to know that there has also been an anonymous Shakman complaint filed in this matter. I filed it with N. Brennan's office a couple days ago and they are investigating.F^$% this corrupt administration.

Hmmm..I heard they were going to just throw the scores out and promote alphabetically....that's fair right?

Please keep in mind that this is an open blog
