Burge Report Coming Out

Batten down the hatches people. The Burge Report is going to be released, probably within the next two weeks and it could spell big trouble for quite a few people.

First of all, there's Burge. Second, there's a whole bunch of people who worked with and for Burge, some of who are still on the job. This could be the proverbial brick on a number of careers. Although the statute of limitations will protect some, there is no statute of limitations on Official Misconduct (but parts of that law didn't exist back when some of the alleged offenses took place - we'll bet the lawyers have a fun time with this one).

Third is the fact that the current mayor was the State's Attorney when a whole boatload of these cases made it through the court system. He was also an integral part of what was left of The Machine while it fought a series of holding actions against minority mayors. There is a potentially huge liability issue here for the Department, City Hall and the State's Attorney office and given the Mayor's propensity for throwing people off (and under) the bus when the heat gets to be too much, we might be looking at a long series of lawsuits either being settled or dragged out for a number of years.

Personally, I don't think Burge did 1/3 of the things he's accused of. Just look at the shitty reputation of his accusers.

Burge has been gone off the job for 14 years. Very few people who were in his "circle" are still around. Most of the guys dragged into this were career detectives and didn't become bosses. Some of them that I know are sgt's. But let's be honest. A sergeant with 25 or 30 years on isn't exactly lighting up the career progression charts. No bosses are going to come under scrutiny for Burge.

Most guys who make det that have the juice to move up, just want the detective stamp. If they land in VC, they stumble through a few cleared murders, mostly on the periphery, and then move on. Cline has surrounded himself with exempts that have less than 20 years on the job. But there are still a few guys left, good coppers, that are about to get smeared big time. The northshore sheeny mouthpieces are going to have field day.

I had a motion last year were the offender stated that I beat him with a TV antenna and choked him with typewriter cover. It's become a cliche. Then his sheeny mouthpiece brought up the fact that I had worked with two detectives (now retired) that worked in the old Area 3 with Burge. One day someone will be asked if they worked with me who worked with those two guys who worked for Burge. The sheeny loves money more than life itself.

One day on the South side there was a great big meeting of all the peoples. An unto thy assembly, a Moses of Jesse Jacksonian proportions came forth and said unto thee:

If thy shall be arrested, be sure to allege that at least 3 of the following 8 people are accused of at least 2 of the following 5 atrocities: Burge, B, C, D, E, F, G, H; Electrocution, 2, 3, 4.

And woe unto the Chicago police department, these assembled masses went forth and made thousands of such allegations when arrested for all manner of infractions.

It was all a conspiracy to keep the Man down!

OFF TOPIC but then again maybe not!

Mayor and Two City Council Members were FIRED!
“Politicians across the country should take note of the results of this election. The central issue of this referendum vote was illegal immigration and elitist politicians ignoring the will of the American people for their own special interests. The voters of Herndon, Virginia sent a clear message to their city officials: ‘You’re fired.’”

Either way, John Burge is a political punching bag for the strokes at the peoples law office*.

Years of examination in federal court failed to find compelling evidence of torture, yet two political hack lawyers are now poised to release the definitive report showing a pattern of torture and corruption existed. Yep, the lawyers are lining up now to fleece the city on behalf of the Wilson brothers, et al. I think most lawyers should be lined-up in front of a deep trench. I'll stand behind Burge, and remain there, before I get in line with the Peoples Law Office. The recollection of the traffic traffic stop at 81st and Throop by two other police officers twenty-five years ago demands that much.

12:16 you're preaching to the choir. Lets look at what happened for a moment at the tragic situation from the Yuppius Headupasses point of view: a family goes to the zoo, family crosses street w/in the crosswalk where there is a stop sign. Mr. I'm extremely fucking important in his Lexus is probably on his cell phone talking to his buddy about the bim he boffed on friday night, is so full of himself that he disregards said stop sign. Hitting the mother, her son and 3 year old child, which by the way may have survived if asshat had locked the brakes, instead of hauling ass and dragging the girl underneath his car to her death. As you can see, the Yuppius, a card carrying member of the democratic party, cannot blame the victim (which he is correct), cannot blame the environment where this occured. Yet, in his convoluted reasoning will blame the police before he will EVER place the blame where it squarely belongs, THE OFFENDER. And we wonder why this country is going to shit? My prayers go out to the family for their tragic loss, and I hope both asshats enjoy their brokeback lives for all eternity in hell. Stay safe y'all.

What kind of parent "assumes" that a car is going to stop at a stop sign, anyway?

I've noticed that many Northsiders and people who work downtown walk into the street without even looking if there's a stop sign or if they have the light. You just can't do that anymore. Most people view a stop sign as a yield sign these days and only slow down to about 20 mph before they accellerate through an intersection. If I had to write everyone who blew a stop sign I'd have to forget about answering the radio and write 4 out of 5 drivers at any given intersection. This isn't to excuse the driver of that Lexus or to blame the parent, it's just a fact these days. Sad, but true.

The attack on J.B. is nothing more than a racial attack by relatives of killers and killers themselves for his outstanding efforts at placing the killers behind bars.

His accusers are liars and murdering scum.
Their defending money slobbering
lawyers are scum as well.

If you weren't there do not spread false rumors. The dead victims of the accusing killers can speak for themselves. Those courtroom accounts defining, in detail, the horrorific acts of the killer scum
should be published in bold print...everyone of them.

Off toThe PETA (People for the Ethical Treatment of Animals) website has a wonderful question and answer feature that we've put to use over the past few months. We're still waiting for replies to the questions we submitted, below.

1) I’m having a barbeque and trying to decide if I should put veal or pork on the shish-kebob. Which do you think is easier to impale-- the tender flesh of young calves who’ve never seen daylight, or the succulent tissue of a cuddly pig?

2) I recently hit a young fawn with my new Hummer. The splatter of technicolor gore across my hood and windshield was amazing! I immediately stopped to call my Hummer Dealer to find out if deer spleen stains. Problem was, I couldn’t hear the guy on the phone over the agonized mewling of the mangled fawn. Do you have any idea?

3) My friend and I have a bet. He says that a goldfish will survive the puree setting on the blender, and I think it won’t. I need to win this one because I lost the "cats always land on their feet" bet. Anyway, we’re going to do a series of tests at each blender setting. Any idea where we can get some cheap goldfish?

4) Our dog used to bark every time someone rang the doorbell. We were able to stop him by kicking him in the balls as hard as we could every time he did it. Problem is, we can’t see his balls anymore. I think we can get them to pop back out of his abdomen if we hold his head under water. My dad wants to just kick him in the ass until they fall back down. Which do you think will work?

5) Do you know any wildlife preserves where they allow you to hunt blind, injured animals?

(Note: No animals were hurt in the creation of this post. Nor does Potfry advocate injuring animals or hunting. But if you truly believe in the liberation of goldfish, then I hope this burns you badly). pic but;

Standard response #3.

When in doubt, or presented with a logical argument, immediately call the other person a "boss" or allege that they must have a "desk job". More options include telling the other person to "drink some more Kool-Aid" or simply, "fuck you".

From what I can see, it is perfectly alright to use all manner of derogatory terms aimed at blacks and Hispanics on this blog, but if you say something nasty about Jews, it gets deleted rather quickly.

As a group, I just wonder why they always seem to get protected, while everyone else is fair game?

Just a thought...I don't like any of the derogatory stuff, but there seems to be a definite bias here just like in every other media format.

Look at the plo and the goofs at N.W. Univ. that have esxposed the alleged wrong doings by the CPD.
One day, when one of their own becomes the victim of one of these mutes, then and only then will J. Burge and the CPD be vilified.

I actually think you hit the nail on the head. These People Burge and his people dealt with were the SCUM of the Earth. Burge did not have access to the DNA technology that is available today. These OFFENDERS were in the area for a reason. Burge did not pick people at random off the street. All of these J.O.s were either named, picked out or somehow linked to the case. Burge and his Dets are being held up to today's standards by people who do no have a clue. The N.W. University Professors come to mind. On a side note The N.W. University Professors have already had one of their people recant a confession made to them (Welcome to our World) but the news did not make a big deal about it. I'm sorry I'm rambling but this goes to show all of us that we should do as little as possible in the neighborhoods that do not support us. I know there are good people there but none of them ever come to our defense when push comes to shove so SCREW them. As soon as you are able to transfer to your neighborhood and protect the home front. We are all we have.
