more of the chicago way right here.....this is down right pathetic.
Test Proctor is Felon with UUW Conviction
An SCC Reader Exclusive:
Late breaking news from the Sergeants Exam, and you aren't going to like it (via e-mail):
Thought you might find this both very interesting and very disturbing. My Proctor at the Sergeant's Test had "Hater" written all over his face, and he made me feel like I do when I see guys that I've locked up in the past when I'm off duty.
So I decided to do a bit of research on my Proctor. Data Warehouse confirmed his identity.
[...] the guy that was checking [police] ID's (I was smart enough to give him just the CPD I.D.), had his name tag / ID exposed. His name was PARIS, Clay. The same Clay Paris that I found in Data Warehouse. Clay Paris has the IR #1596144, and he is a CONVICTED FELON...
BEST PART HERE....THE GUN HE WAS PINCHED WITH WAS STOLEN FROM ROCKFORD P.D.
REFERENCE CPD RD# HS-498-070
So here we have a convicted felon checking officers' IDs - some of [whom] unknowingly provided [this] ******* with their DL's with home addresses.
[Anyone] can confirm this by simply checking his IR# thru Data Warehouse. This is unacceptable that the City has hired convicted felons in such a sensitive roll.
We noticed there were issues with the coat check (and bathrooms)(and climate control), so people ended up leaving coats lined up on the walls nearby. Hopefully your coat wasn't out-of-sight or missing anything sensitive after the test, but isn't anyone doing background checks on these "proctors?" A felon with a stolen police gun assisting in monitoring an exam for cops?
We suppose it's the best we can expect from Rahm and McCarthy.
