Overnight Thread

By Wyatt Earp | April 30, 2011

Tonight’s topic is A Tale Of Two Cities. Read these stories, and the responses by the department’s leaders. See if you can find the idiocy.

This is Philly Firefighter Jack Slivinski. Jack recently posed shirtless for a charity calendar. The proceeds of which would raise money for the widows of fallen firefighters.

Naturally, the Philadelphia fire Department found out about the photo and responded rationally: by transferring Slivinski and conducting a show trial internal investigation.

A Philadelphia firefighter who struck a pose for a charity calendar is causing a raging controversy within the Philadelphia Fire Department. In the photo, 31-year-old Jack Slivinski is posing in front of the Logan Circle fountain, smiling and shirtless. Money from the calendars would have benefited widows of Philadelphia firefighters. Just one small problem: the department doesn’t allow it.

“We don’t do beefcake. We don’t sell sex. We sell safety,” says fire commissioner Lloyd Ayers, who has taken Slivinski out of the elite Rescue 1 unit while he investigates.

You sell safety, Lloyd? Then how do you explain the department’s policy of browning out fire stations across the city? Fire deaths are through the roof and you stand there smiling like an idiot? Just because you don’t have the stones to take on the mayor, doesn’t mean it’s okay to take out your frustration on a firefighter that was trying to raise money for a good cause. You’re a disgrace. Do us all a favor and resign.

Then, take Los Angeles; a town that sits by while on-duty officers appear in pr0n.

City officials failed to discipline two traffic officers who appeared in a pornographic film while on the job, NBC4 LA has found. The Los Angeles Department of Transportation has opened an investigation into the behavior of two uniformed, on-duty officers who appear in the sexually explicit movie. The investigation was prompted by the NBC4 LA exposé, which will air in full Friday at 11 p.m.

Various men in the film appear to grope her and perform a range of sex acts with her. In one scene, the actress jumps into the arms of an LA traffic officer, who spanks her and then fondles her bare breasts. A second traffic officer takes a few spankings from the woman, then allows her to get into his city car, where she performs lewd acts on herself.

Now, I’m no commanding officer, but I’m pretty sure common sense would dictate these two responses should be reversed. Slivinski should get a pass – or at most a reprimand – and the L.A. officers should be suspended. Thoughts?

    Lloyd should reach into his overpaid pocket and buy a couple dozen calenders.

    Skip – In my opinion, Ayers is not only incompetent, but also a racist.

    Nice to see that Philly is trying to catch up to Chicago.
    The floggings will continue until morale improves.

    I have to say that I’m VERY disappointed in the LAPD officers. I mean out of some 13,000 officers on the force they couldn’t get some female officer in a 2-sizes too small uniform to play the ‘bad’ cop? Everybody knows it’s all about the girl-girl action these days.

    Oh…and while I’m here, I pretty much skipped the whole Royal Wedding brouhaha (and some stuff I actually WANTED to see) so I could blog about the latest developments south of the border- none of them good.

    Captain America has written some frightening blog posts on how the brown outs have affected the city. Ayers should be manning bakes sales outside of Shop Rite on weekends to keep those firehouses open. People are dying in fires, but hey, he’s got standards.

    NYFD recently published a 2012 calendar, the proceeds will be used to buy fire equipment. If anyone is interested: . If they can do it, why can’t Philly? I would so buy a calendar with firefighter Jack, even with the lack of chest hair. He’s my new lust cookie!

    I’ll take a bullet for the team. That picture is actually me last summer on a trip to Philly. I’m Spartacus!

    Jezzus, are the headhunters THAT hard up for “work”???
    This Lloyd Ayers somehow related anyway to BILL Ayers?
    (sure sounds like it)

    Take from the WIDOWS (that never had to BECOME widows, had the department been ru as DESIGNED)…that makes sense…NOT!
    Astoundingly stupid city “leaders”..every fracking one of them.

    Roll safe out there.

    Not hot, smokin’ hot!
    I could pour a shot of Absolut down his belly and slurp it out of his navel without getting splashed in the face.

    A little something I whipped up this afternoon.

    Guerrilla marketing to counter the MSM/DNC message. Gotta love it!

    Jack Slivinski really is Mr. Philly. As a member of Philadelphia’s Rescue 1, Jack goes above and beyond everytime he is called upon to serve and protect. The commissioner does nothing but suck up to the mayor, that has closed companies for ever, put companies out of service for day or night shifts, and put the people of Philadelphia in great peril.

    It looks like he shaves. It also looks like the city suffered premature ejaculation. Especially that one stream that reaches above the skyline.

    You already know my opinion on this one.
    Fire commissioner Lloyd Ayers is an &*^%$.
    And Jack Slivinski is hawtttttttt. Good thing he can put put fires, because I bet with that bod he starts quite a few too. (wolf whistles)

    LDIV – Mayor Nutter hates firefighters even more than he hates the po-po. It’s astounding.

    Fenway – No worries. I’m sure that border fence will be completed any day now. ///

    Mrs. Crankipants – The Captain has the link to this charity on his blog.

    Akornzombie – He’s a stone cold racist, but that’s seen as a badge of honor in this town.

    Murphy – Congratulations! You look ripped!

    Bob G – What does he care? He gets paid a ridiculous salary and will get a ridiculous pension.

    RT – Don’t know.

    Mrs. Crankipants – So many responses to the “splashed in the face” line, but I’ll refrain.

    Woody – That’s a damned good idea!

    Monger – Every time I want to bitch about Ramsey, I remember who you guys have to deal with. You have my condolences.

    Kim – I am so mot touching that comment with a ten-foot fireman’s pole!

    EL – No worries. It’s tough to type when you’re flustered. :)

    Easily Lost, I would share a photo of my fireman (Husband) but that would throw you into cardiac arrest. He is way better looking than the guy in the photo. Especially when he’s in his gear.

    *Fans self and goes looking for Hubby.*

    FDNY used to put out a calendar for charity, then when they fell on hard times, they used the money for equipment. There are women all over Philadelphia that would buy a fireman calendar. In a town where there is so much damn corruption, THIS is where they suddenly decide to have scruples?

    Kim: No one likes a show off, but you can redeem yourself by sending me photos. Thanks in advance!

    I don’t think he should even get a reprimand, at worst. What he has done, is on personal time, and apparently he’s not even wearing a uniform, and not directly representing the Philly FD. On that note, he’s free to do whatever he wants, and his boss should have no say in the matter.

    Compounded by the fact that he’s doing it for charity to help the families of his own fallen brethren – his boss Ayers is an ass and should go seek another bullshit management desk job elsewhere.

    I could care less about the calendar, but I’d buy it for the charity alone, and give it to Mrs. Crankipants…
