Quick Hits and Ryan Fallout

From various news channels:
  • Channel 2: Federal prosecutors are pushing ahead with investigations of political patronage and payoffs at City Hall and in state government. Hey Lefty? Shady? You wanted Fitz-mas? Here's your Fitzmas! Ryan going down and Daley's machine on the ropes. Watch the County people next (John Daley anyone?)
  • Channel 5: Less than a day after former Gov. George Ryan was found guilty of several corruption charges, questions have arisen over whether the jury forewoman withheld information on her questionnaire. Grounds for an appeal? Maybe, but we think not. If it was a State trial, maybe. Federal judges are smarter and less connected to local issues. Judge Pallmeyer seems to have done a good job here.
  • Channel 7: The Chicago Police Department is teaming up with church and business leaders to get guns off the street in a program that offers cash for weapons -- with no questions asked. Whoopee! The churches will get a bunch of outdated, rusty, non functional guns that probably would explode if fired and the people will get $100 debit cards they can sell for 50 bucks to purchase a nice shiny new gun.
  • Channel 7 again: Officers from the 10th District are pitching in to help some young ladies become Cinderella for a night. They have collected about 40 prom dresses to give away to girls who might not be able to afford the dress of their dreams. WBBM called this their "feel good story" of the day.

Several male detectives from Area Four were given first shot at the prom dresses. Observed a few dicks attempting to wear the way too small dresses. Hardly a feel good story, but whatever turns you on.

Just a question, I'm curious.
If the Mayor is so worried about the Fed's looking into patronage scnadal's, then why would he hire Hubermann, a patronage lord himself, to watch over the internal dealing's?
Huberman is a graduate of U of C, but how do you go from Patrolman to deputy under a decade, and then chief of staff?
By this example, I don't think the Mayor's too worried.

So Father Pfleger and a bunch of "reverands" have decided to clean up crime in their fucked up neighborhoods.

This clown doesn't have a fucking clue what he is doing. It would be laughable if it wasn't so tragic. No, it's laughable.
Godforbid these men of the cloth, yeah right, go after the ONLY source of crime in their neighborhoods. If they condoned arresting young black men, they'd have no congregation! So instead, they go after a fictional cause of the problems, guns.

Guns don't kill people asshole, people kill people. You could take every gun off the streets and people will still kill people. They'll just use knives, bats, cars, blowtorches, bombs, hand-to-hand combat or whatever the fuck is handy at the time. You cannot stop that.

This buy-back program has failed in every city it has happened in.
And the BEST part is these shitbirds can just hand over a gun, no questions asked. Here's an idea. Get a fucking fingerprint or an ID on these mutts. I want to see the results of forensic analysis on these guns that are turned in. How many are going to be linked to murders, and the CPD brass will be standing there looking dumb for not knowing who handed in the heater.

But to the Sheeple of Chicago who eat up this fodder with no practical knowledge of law enforcement, this is going to single-handedly let the people take back the streets.

Thanks to Daley, CPD Brass and the "reverands." I can't remember the last time I laughed so hard. You've made my day!!

If the Fed's were serious, really serious, about all this patronage b.s. they would have hit city hall with sealed search warrants all at once. Not bringing a person or two in for questioning, and then other's much later.
It's kind of like driving to a shot's fired call with your siren blaring...everyone know's your comming, better get out of there.

12:55, though your subject is way off topic, you do have a voice here, and you are understod by your bretheren.
Father Pfleger, if you have ever read the word of Jesus, is a saint. He is doing the work that 99.9% of our society won't do.
Don't you dare say on this blog, that you have never bought a hype a dinner, or a pack of smokes. Pfleger has no fear of criticism, or what his peer's think. Heck, this guy has only a cot and a place to squat. He has given up ALL material goods in place for serving people who can't help themselves. If he really pisses you off because his heart is aimed at helping people, then please sir, get angry at a white school teacher for working on the west side. It's the same thing.

It seems to me: 1) that city hall and county government should be worried, because the Ryan trial established the illegality of "patronage"; 2) the Dems are "praying" that a Dem gets the White House the next time around, because if the Repubs keep it, and keep an independent US Attorney here in Chicago, the city and county Dems are in BIG trouble.

Sorry dipshit, but father Pfleger (I won't capitalize his offensive-to-me-title) is far from the meek, destitute saint you portray him to be.

Your words: "He has given up ALL material goods in place for serving people who can't help themselves."

All except his brand new Chrysler 300M, asshole. But don't take my word for it. Try running the vanity plates "DA BLOOD"

And before you naysayers attack, I know that Catholic priests do not take the vow of poverty and I don't give a shit if that race-baiting, oxygen-stealing miserable excuse of a human being drives a Lamborghini. I simply won't let some ignorant asshole mislead the readers into thinking Pfleger has credibility.

1:22 you have good point's. But I still can't for the life of me understand why so many Chicago cop's vote republican?
Does anyone here see the gas prices, and still drive over the speed limit?
Does any cop here see the profit margins on AMERICAN oil corperations?
The interest rates are SOOOOO attractive, you can afford to purchase anything, even if the price is INFLATED!
INFLATED FOLKS!
INFLATED!!!!!!!
EXAMPLE IS NOW POSTED HERE.
You wanna buy a new deck for the back yard, but you can't afford the price, NO problem H/depot has no interest, no payment's for a year, and you "Qualify" for the card. You can stretch the payment's over a year's time.
What you aren't concerned about is that the cost of the wood, screw's, cement, ect has DOUBLED.
This scenario is applicable to home buying, car purchasing, and even shopping at Dominick's.
Do yourself a favor, grab tommorow's paper, and look at all stock market share's of your local corperations, and ask ....
Who's spending all this cash?
Who's making all this cash?
God bless the republican's...They are fucking smart!
What this has to do with Ryan is beyond me.

Whay are most cops Republicans?

Hmmmm.... let me think.

Could it be because we don't like throwing our money at the Democrat's rediculous social programs that breed massive fraud and allow the lazy to become even lazier?

Could it be because Democrats shun all religious and family values and promote bizarre lifestyles just to get the gay vote?

Could it be because the Democrats want to decriminalize the drugs that tear our families apart and are killing our children?

Could it be because Democrats no longer consider a blowjob as "sex" (per Bill Clinton), therefore saying it's okay for your 14-year-old daughter to suck her boyfriend's dick in your basement?

Could it be because the Democratic Party is the party of disgraced, hypocrite adulterist Jesse Jackson, Al Sharpton, Maxine Waters, Diane Feistein and a couple thousand other loony nutballs?

Could it be because the Democratic Party is "for" the killing of innocent unborn babies but "against" the execution of child-raping serial murderers?

Could it be because the Democrats want to enact more "programs" for repeat offenders while the Republicans want to build more jails?

Gee, I can't seem to figure it out.

And no, I don't buy hypes dinners or packs of Kools or bottles of Thunderbird. They are scum. You can get info out of them without kissing their asses. It's called fear of them getting thrown into County.

Pfleger and our "reverands" are far from poverty. If they arent in their new 300's, they are in Escelades or some other flyass whip.
Stupid shitheads serve dope on the corners. Only the HALF-WAY intelligent ones learned the best scam out there is to be a ghetto reverand. They can spend all the congregations money and never pay taxes. The congregation will then DEFEND them as they get indicted because "the man" is out to get them.

Pfeger is a fucking clown, as are all the other race-baiting ghetto clergy.

I appreciate your position though.

The fed's can't go after Daley. They know he is a vital part of the American economy. They know if they indict him the City will end up with a shithead Mayor and the major economy of Chicago will end up a Gary Indiana.

The fed's will pick and choose a few political pals of his to try to keep the Mayor in check but they can never go after him personally.

The only things missing from Fr. Pfleger are the big shoes and red nose. He has a 300? Damn! I bet he got Dubs and Spinners on it! Could he be the next Rev. Don Juan?

Here's your Fitzmas! Ryan going down and Daley's machine on the ropes. Watch the County people next (John Daley anyone?)

-----------------

SCC, are you daring to imply that Daley is a Leftist?? I really hope not because you could not be any more wrong. Do not mistake is pandering to blacks as a leftist position, he is merely begging for their votes.

A Leftis mayor would not :

* be so anti labor.
* be so anti City worker.
* be pro-big business.
* be so anti-Middle Class
* steal away mom and pop stores to build a new 9th Dist station then turn around and sell that land to developers to build condos.
* be so buddy buddy with "Dubya" every time he comes to town.

A leftist mayor would have spoken out against the war in Iraq, the outing of the CIA agents, and the illegal spying of non-jihadist Americans. A leftist mayor would have joined Sen. Fiengold's Bush 2's censure order.

Daley has done NONE of this. Which by defalt, makes him a CONSERVATIVE! Daley is a Republican in Donkey clothes.

Sorry, SCC, Daley is offically yours. You can keep him.

You're assuming that the Feds have any brains. The number #1 tool the feds have is the FEDERAL law that makes it a crime to lie to a federal agent. The feds don't need that much proof, they just need you to lie to them once! That is why Daley brought his lawyer right away.

The feds could n't even find where Ryan stached his ill gotten gains.

Hey 01:20:58 why does jagoff pfleger protest at a liquor distributor, call all the media, but then backs off when the owner of the distributor is asked if he would like to make a donation to pfleger's church. Sounds like a strong arm robbery to me. Or how about meeks. The first collection is for the church and the second is his salary. When he ran for State Rep his tax returns were released and he showed he made 800K, pretty good for someone doing the lords work living out in Olympia Fields. One word....CROOKS!!!

I know talking to my fellow detectives that AREA 4 has got the most attractive female detectives in the city. AREA 3 is second, AREA 1, is third, AREA 5 fourth and the least attractive detectives, or should i say UGLY are found in AREA 2. ( I guess that their are a lot of married men detectives out that way and their wives signed the petition to have all ugly female dics to go there.) Thank God for the rest of us. THANK YOU AREA 2 FOR STEPPING UP TO THE PLATE.

Pfleger thinks that he is bigger than the Catholic church. When his rotation at Sabinas was up ( a couple of years ago), he had a hissyfit and stated that if he was tranferred( like all other Catholic priests) he would quit the priesthood and start his own church.

He is also a pain in the ass for the 006th district and Area Two.
