A big step backward for female officers

Update: The sergeant has been stripped, and is now facing serious criminal charges. You can read the whole indictment here. [hat tip: SCC]
Her website is down; I'd imagine much like her IQ. And I'm trying to get a copy of her resume that is going around various email circuits. When I get it, I'll post it. It's priceless!




The Pole-ease Academy is the online pole dancing studio run by Chicago Police Sergeant Stacey Smith. She's been getting publicity since the Chicago Tribune ran a story about women who are getting cosmetic procedurues to improve their appearances. Miss Smith, the story says, is learning "pole dancing". She was interviewed and photographed for the piece.

It's great. But is it realistic? Many women seem willing to try. Stacey Smith, a Chicago police officer, is one of them. Smith loves her pole-dancing classes at Weissman's Chicago Heights studio.

"It's a blast. I dress like a man every day. I wear men's clothes, and I work with mostly men. Then I come home, and I'm mommy to four. And I'm a master's student in public safety administration. So, I don't have a whole lot of time to be feminine. This kind of helps to get your sensuality back, not to mention physical fitness," she says.


I've never worked with Miss Smith but plenty of officers have and are none too impressed with her abilities on the police department. Second City Cop has had quite a few anonymous posters comment on their views of her qualifications as a sergeant of police.

I have to say that since I don't know Miss Smith, I can't comment on what kind of sergeant she is. Nor can I comment on how she is as a person. Having said that let me put my opinion out there about how this type of woman reflects negatively on the Chicago Police department.

stacey_smith

There is no doubt that it is a difficult road for a female to be a police officer. Women don't have the size nor strength that a man has. Many of us are asked to go into difficult and dangerous situations and to protect the lives of citizens and, those of our brother and sister officers in the field. Many male officers don't want to work with a female because they feel that it is a safety issue. If the fights on, you better be certain that your partner is up to the task and can assist you properly. You're putting your life in his or her hands.

More problematic, women on the department are assumed, by some male members, to fall into one of two categories: slut or lesbian. I know that doesn't apply to ALL male officers but it is an undercurrent in the department. So women face challenges on the job that make it difficult to negotiate. I've found that female officers simply want to be given a chance to show that they can do it just as well as men and many of them do. Many of them are excellent police officers.

However, when people like Sgt. Smith go public with salacious tidbits about her personal life; getting cosmetic surgery and exotic pole dancing - it just feeds into the stereotype that female police officers are only on this job to use their sexuality to get promoted, or stay on a cushy inside spot or do nothing but act like some white trash hillbilly.

It's just my opinion but I think that Sgt. Smith's public conduct is a poor reflection on this department and she should be chided, nay disciplined, for having made a mockery of the badge. Why make it harder on your fellow female officers when they already have it hard enough?

AND SGT. SMITH WONDERS WHY " NO ONE REPSECTS HER " HUH .....

oh shes on the medical must have hurt her back by sliding down the pole the wrong way !!!

On the recent transfer order, her move to 009 was listed as by bid but it was actually by management. Gee, why would Cmdr. Roy bring in an outstanding sgt. like this on management. Pole dancing classes during roll call?

I'd feel the same way bout a male copper stripping and dancing at a club as a side job. Kind of saying they dont take their job very seriously and its a big fucking joke.

It would appear that the esteemed Sgt. Smith didn't do our rank, nor our profession any favors by being interviewed about her off duty talents. I guess that's why she's a "mommy to four."

I don't know about Stacy's abilities as a Sergeant, but her tattoos are EXTRAORDINARY. I want to take her class so I could possibly suck her toes. I hope she is my Sergeant some day. Her fake titties are the bomb!!!!!!!!

Did she used to be a stripper somewhere? If so, where? She is super slutty and hot!!!!!!

When I worked in four about four years ago I had a chance to suck those toes dude. They taste just like Fritos Corn Chips. AWESOME!!!

I never knew your blog existed, now I know why! Complete lies. Not on the medical for an injury, not a management pick in 009 - check it out, there was one bid spot open on midnites, 1 sgt bid....figure it out. Why would an "admirer" leave her on midnights? Not a stripper!!!!! Not at a club!!!! It WAS an exercise class for WOMEN ONLY!!!! It has nothing to do with the job! It builds strength and endurance which would be beneficial to co workers. Her mom is a very well respected "WORKER"! And anyone who ever worked with the Sgt. also admires her work ethic. The ass from 004 is a complete liar!!!! You are also not doing the profession any favors by posting vicious lies!

Wow! There are obviously a lot of people with too much time on their hands and a bit of jealousy!! Why don't you all grow up and get a damn life. Put down the donuts and coffee and go catch some bad guys instead of being miserable because you are all fat and lazy and have fat lazy wives sittin at home while you are at work cheating on them with hookers you pick up. That's why I can't stand police. Men are pigs. Perfect job for all you pieces of shit. Those who truly know Sgt. Smith knows how extremely intelligent she is and you could only dream of having the pleasure of knowing someone with a heart like hers. Go to hell PIGS!!

Rue you see the latest controversy regarding this lovely Sgt? Yeah, not so good. Supposedly having relations with a gangbanger. Even drove him to an area where he was involved in a shooting. Amazingly enough her poledancing website and her myspace page were taking down right after the incident. Also rumored to have had the gangbanger shooter as her #2 friend on her myspace page. What a pathetic disgrace to the policing profession. Check out the CPD blog at secondcitycop.blogspot.com under the more bad news post. It's on fire.

My sympathy and concern is for Sgt. Stacey Smith's children. What do you think they stand to endure as a result of all of this?! There isn't any comfort in knowing they have their father because he is just as whacked! as Sgt. Stacey. I'll pray that they are affected as little as possible by their parent's poor choices.

Canaryville residents take heed and be vigilant, this incident may just have touched off a bigger problem for you, keep your loved ones very close and keep your eyes and ears open. I pray for everyone's safety. Police, residents and all.

Melissa said...

WOW !!! Everyone should thank Smith for more DRAMA she caused thats all this piece of shit nieghborhood is about a bunch of ANONYNOUS SHIT TALKERS that love DRAMA ..... This is going way too far always easier to put the blame on someone else Yeah she made mistakes get over it already find something new to talk shit about and as far as being a pole dancer people need to quit haten cause they don't have the nerve to do it and as far as her having 4 kids at least she knows who they belong to people in Canaryville have nerve majority of the people don't even know who thier kids belong too all I have too say is get over it people life has too be much more important then anonymous internet shit talkers ....

Well, well... I may have run across this article late but I am glad I did.

It's amazing to me that all of you commenting here (the smart people that is), speak about the now debadged officer as if you have known her your whole life!

Honestly, most of you are hitting the nail on the head and the rest are just scratching the surface as far as her reputation on and off the job goes. She is, in my opinion, a despicable human being and has been her entire life.

How would I know? I have known her my entire life and I believe whole heartedly that she is very capable of being involved in something such as or at least in some fashion. There were several years before becoming a police officer that she harassed me and a few after as well.

She must have thought that her looks, her education, and her career choice, wouldn't connect her to such a crime or such people... think again!

There are people such as myself that believe in our system and would appreciate nothing more than to see the law be executed flawlessly and upheld against her in this matter.

This certinaly wouldn't be the first time she has been involved with people on the wrong side of the law - nor will it be the last.

It also wouldn't be the first time she has cheated on a husband (or four).

Sorry for my dry humor. Honestly no hard feelings or jealousy uderlying on my part. Finding this article I must say has made my day. Not because I wish her harm but because it's about time!

Just not too long ago she actually tried contacting me to tell me how much she admired me and claimed that we were similar... and she seemed so typically smug. I wonder how smug she is today?

Without having to say... I disregarded her messages because I see NO similarities between us. Espically now. Try as she may, she always chose the wrong path.

Maybe doing some time behind bars with the people she liked to hang around with and being publicly humiliated will be a humbling experience for her.

My regards for friends and family...

However, if I know her, you know her. As a friend or family member you should have seen this coming. You should have stopped her dead in her tracks and finally told her to GROW UP.

Let justice prevail!

Rue St. Michel said...

Well said and well written. "Let justice prevail" indeed.

I wholeheartedly support that in this case.

I don't know Ms. Smith (I won't sully the role of sergeant by calling her a Sergeant) but I have seen her resume. It's interesting to note that she was a meritorious sergeant AND she is on the meritorious Lieutenants list (#266 I think!)

Nothing like the CPD promoting the best and brightest, eh?

And for 'Melissa' who commented above, you can go fuck yourself. We in patrol have to depend on these no-talent, weasel, hacks all the time and we're getting sick of it. She doesn't belong on the Chicago police department and, God willing, she'll be gone very soon.

Good riddance!

You would think that the police would have more common sense than to believe everything people tell them. Then again, its those Pigs that are making these stories up. Just like the stories they make up on a scene when they shoot a kid and claim they pointed a gun at them first. Just because you have the badge doesn't mean you're telling the truth. Those Pigs that sit on this site making negative comments about someone they THINK they know is amusing to me. You think all of these little weasel cops are telling the truth? You think those Canaryville scum bags are telling the truth? Hell no. Just something to talk about to make their pathetic lives seem a little less pathetic. Those that do know this Sergeant, know how extremely bright her AND her four children are. Oh my! She's the only one with 4 children!! How bout you Pigs that have children and don't even acknowlege them? Those that post negative comments must be a bit envious. You people are like little kids playing the telephone game. Give me a break! And those of you that talk that trash about her mother should be ashamed. Anyone who knows her has the utmost respect for her so your talk gets you nowhere. Go blow smoke up somebody elses ass! The physical features, exercise program and tattoos have nothing to do with a persons ability to do a job. Are you serious? How many of you have tattoos or wives that could stand to get off their fat asses and lose a few pounds. You only wish your wife would take a pole exercise class so that your personal life could be a lil more interesting so you don't have to sit on a website talking shit about someone they wish they had or think they know. How many police officers are on the job right now as we speak? Are you working hard? I bet you are working hard.. on another story you can make up to tell your lame ass police buddies. Get your heads out of your asses and get a life!

Probably equals the number of teeth you have in your mouth.

OOh Look! Now she's doing drive-bys with her POS banger boyfriend. I hope all you morons who sang her praises here are very proud. Soon she'll be teaching pole dancing at the women's correctional center.....as an inmate

004 P Hound said...

I don't know if you heard but, it seems Stacy's boyfriend, Simental (Insane Deuce) sang like a canary. Told the Investigators that he has been carrying on with her for quite some time. Also, related that she is very proficient at oral sex and takes care of the entire gang. Now we know how a misfit and a disgrace like this makes rank on this job. This has to be a strain on her farce of a marriage. Young Simental also stated he was in Stacy's car just prior to the shooting. I guess old Stace is going to have to go back to stripping and blowing to make a living.

Hey Moran from 004: I'm sure you are Stacey's ex filled with all those bullshit lies. She was never a stripper so how is she going back to being one? She taught a WOMAN'S pole dancing exercise class just like many other WOMAN do you idiot!! No men! How in the hell did you get your badge? Maybe you're the misfit that cheated on your wife in first place! Get a fucking life PIG!

Jealous? Of what may I ask? The amount of money you save by not going to a dentist? The amount of gas money you save by never venturing out of your inbred hole into the real world? Jealous of your LINK card? Jealous of your ever present probability that every family reunion will result in meeting your next boyfriend/girlfriend/lay? Jealous of your GED? Jealous of what....?

By the way, where'd you steal the computer to get on this blog anyway?

Anonymous Son of a Bitch 5:31,
You are a complete IDIOT. FYI, I have a full mouth of teeth (with no cavaties I might add), college degree, NEVER lived in canaryville and Sgt. S moved from there when she was 2 (I'm sure she caused a lot of trouble during her first 2 years on earth,RETARD). I work 2 jobs and drive a big fukin truck that costs $100 to fill up. I'm POSITIVE my house is AT LEAST twice the size of yours and I've never had a LINK card, yet I'm sure one of your mistresses have. I have three computers (that I paid for) yet I'm sure you are sittin on the PD's computer while you are gettin paid and should be doing something more productive, like WORKING. What a piece of work you are. You must be proud. I'm sure your kids are shitheads just like you. Get your story straight moran!

Anonymous said...

re 10:11

- mouth full of teeth (dentures the govt paid for cuz your others fell out)

- associate degree from moran valley doesn't count

- Sgt headcase took her canarytrash genes with her when she moved. you can take the hillbilly out of the ville but not the ville out of the hillbilly.

- does working at jj peppers and selling budd out your back door count as two jobs?

- $100 to fill your $200 1982 ranger? when you get it off the blocks in your front yard maybe.

- your doublewide trailer might be bigger than you neighbor's single but it surely smaller than my home in the northshore suburbs

- never had a LINK card, sorry about that one, maybe you have two. one for each alias

- your atari 400, apple ][e and vic 20 don't count as computers anymore

- sorry, i don't work for a police department so i can't be on their computer right now can i? that seems like a shitty and thankless job. made my money in the markets and retired a long time ago.

- kids are fine thanks. no mistresses though

You seem to be full of a lot of anger, but maybe that's because the truth hurts. When you're white trash and someone calls you on it, it hits a nerve there doesn't it.
