Scumbag Lawyers Strike Again

The next big corruption trial is now underway and in the opening statements, this little gem:
  • "I think it is about the betrayal of normal prosecutive procedures to embarrass if not perhaps unseat with the help of the Chicago Tribune a very popular sitting mayor," [Sorich defense attorney] Durkin said.
The Prosecution objected and the judge said it was improper for an opening statement. But Durkin continued:
  • Durkin led jurors through the history of patronage over the last 50 years and capped it with the remark that "Richard J. Daley is on trial here." [Judge] Coar said that was improper as well.
So Sorich's defense is going to be similar to that of George Ryan's evidently. "This is the way Chicago (and Illinois) politics has been done for years. I was just doing what everyone else did for decades." Hopefully, it doesn't fly this time either.

What do criminals tend to say?...."I'm not a bad person." Then you hear about all their good deeds.

Didn't someone decide to abolish the death penalty, plant flowers, shed a tear, and pat a dog before the feds came a knockin'?.....Or was it just a bad nightmare I had?

Increased effort of good deeds are what the alleged criminal hopes the jury and public will remember. Crime? What crime? I'm a good person. The good outweighs the bad. Lookey at all the good I did for the City of Shhhh-Caw-Go.

Da Mayor won't skip. Count on that!

And checkout this factoid!!!! He's still as tall (tall?) as he was as an Altar Boy!!!!!

I read a lot of Seiser comments and it upsets me. Most of you have never met the man, but I have. He's a top cop! Besides taking a bite out of crime everyday he will be the fist cop to single-handedly turn the 024th's level II DOC into a level -2. Crime tries to hide when he's out, but he knows just where to find them. Besides being a crime fighter he's not a bad looking guy and knows just how to make a 20 year old pair of police pants look new.

Ok, now my friends let me tell youse this, Lemmer spent the last 12-13 yrs before he made (was annointed) Captain in Research and Development and Youth Advocacy.
He showed up to 023 w/ bad Cowboy boots, dirty-greasy hair, bulging eyes and the worst teeth I have seen since Dave Boggs (not a bad guy).
He's absolutely PRO-KOOLO AID, it's disgusting. At his first shooting in 023 (yes, it does happen but RARELY) he took 6 pages of notes and shut down an area of 5 square blocks for some "TANISHA" shot in the ass. It was THE BIGGEST CLUSTER FUCK I HAVE EVER SEEN SINCE HUBBERMAN LET THE WAR PROTESTERS TAKE OVER LSD. He now has 2 new SGT's on afternoons who are his little NAZI'S. One of them supposedly worked in 023 yrs ago. They run around like this job is all of a sudden legitimate and carry out Lemmer's orders to the hilt. I remember hearing that when Lemmer got to 023 he dressed down a Tact Sgt. for being in BOX 1 of an Arrest Report. The Sgt. explained to Lemmer that he was alone, and observed some guy scalping tickets by Wrigley. He said he cuffed the guy and brought him in and called for a car from his team to help w/ the paper. The Sgt. went in box 1. Lemmer called the Sgt. down and explained to the Sgt. that it was not his role as a SUPERVISOR to arrest people,and that P.O.'s are the only one's who arrest offenders, and that he NEEDS TO RETHINK HIS ROLES AND RESPONSIBLITIES AS A SUPERVISOR
ON THIS JOB. Needless to say that Tact Sgt. is no longer in 023, he left first chance he could. If you think Lemmer is such a great guy, then bid to 023 because the flood gates are open.
Yea 023 is EASY and the SAVAGES are all but gone (except thosE who come from the WEST side to rape and pillage). But you can have your Caffe Latte w/ whip cream on Addison and watch the girls, or guys or trannies, and be chased by Lemmer's Henchmen, and suffer thru Roll Call, "ATTACK ATTACK ATTACK"
and exist in a place where ALL SHOULD BE WELL BUT IS NOT BECAUSE THEY TOOK A NON-POLICE BUREAUCRAT AND MADE HIM A CAPTAIN W/O ANY STREET POLICE EXPERIENCE.
Thank You Supt. Cline YOU RUINED A REAL GOOD PLACE TO WORK!!!!
I imagine he will get promoted, you know go to a place ruin it, get rewarded.

A STREET NAMED MUMIA ABU JAMAL
By Michelle Malkin · May 16, 2006 09:29 AM
Disgusting (hat tip: reader Larry):

A street in a Paris suburb has been named in honor of Mumia Abu-Jamal, who was convicted of the 1981 murder of a Philadelphia police officer.
"In France, they see him as a towering figure," said Suzanne Ross, co-chair of the Free Mumia Coalition of New York City, who was part of an April 29 ceremony to dedicate the Rue Mumia Abu-Jamal in the city of St. Denis.

Ross said the street is in the town's Human Rights district, which includes Nelson Mandela Stadium.

Abu-Jamal, a former radio reporter and member of the Black Panther party, was sentenced to death in 1982 for the shooting of 25-year-old Daniel Faulkner. He has maintained his innocence. His writings and taped speeches have made him a cause celebre among Hollywood activists, foreign politicians and some death-penalty opponents who believe he was the victim of a racist justice system.

The 3rd U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals last year agreed to consider three counts of Abu-Jamal's appeal, allegations that there was racial bias in jury selection, that the prosecutor gave an improper summation and that a judge in a previous appeal was biased.

Faulkner's widow, Maureen, called the street dedication "disgusting" and urged Philadelphia residents planning a visit to Paris this summer to cancel their trips. In 2001, the Paris City Council made Abu-Jamal an honorary citizen.

"This is so unnerving for me to get this news," Faulkner said from Los Angeles, where she lives. "It's insulting to the police officers of Philadelphia that they are naming a street after a murderer."

Daniel Faulkner has been honored by a memorial plaque installed at the scene of the shooting at 13th and Locust Streets in Philadelphia.


This is, by the way, National Police Week if you didn't know. Take time to thank a law enforcement officer!

Daniel Faulkner's memorial page is here.

Send the French embassy your thoughts.

This has been circulating around 019 and 023. Well put Patrick!

What are they hiring? Idiots with no backbone or common sense?


Mr. Mark Donahue and all elected FOP Lodge # 7 & other members
interested:

On two separate occasions this year, my wife, which is my immediate
family
and lives with me, got pulled over here in the 016Th District by the
Police.
She was told that the medallion that I bought, paid for and signed out
under
my name and star number, could not be displayed on the vehicle that she
drives. Keep in mind, being married, the vehicle that she uses on a
regular
basis, is owned by both of us. She was also told that it is the policy
of
the 016Th District that a medallion not be displayed on a vehicle
driven by
a non-member, and that me being her husband and a Chicago Police
Officer has
to take it off. Unfortunately she did not get their names and luckily
they
did not issue her any citations.

Just Friday/Saturday a Gold Star Family member was given absolutely no
courtesy by a 019Th District Police Officer Tim Walters. He was not
only
given a DUI. The P.O. slammed him with every ticket possible, including
some
parking tickets for parking in the crosswalk which is where he pulled
over
for P.O. Walters and for no city sticker. This is incredibly insane to
treat people like this. I have only the story of the Gold Star member,
but
this is not the only incident that this same P.O. screwed over another
P.O.
or Police family.

I'm sure you hear many horror stories about the way that Chicago Police
men
and women are treating their own Policemen, family and friends. What
I'd
like to know is, where are they learning not to take care of each
other? I'm
not a dinosaur on this job, but at least I know to take care of our
own.
This is unacceptable. Think if you, yourself or family got treated like
this
Which for some of you it already has. Or our Retired Officers. The
word has
to get out there some how, to improve these type of treatments from
Chicago
Police. Is this why when some of us are traveling out of town and get
pulled
over that we too get treated like shit. That is actually not a
question, it
is a statement. I would like you to pass this e-mail on to the other
elected
members of our beloved FOP Lodge # 7.

WHEN IS THIS GOING TO STOP????
We get treated like shit
by the City enough as it is!

Sorry to post off-topic, but I'm looking for a recommendation on a place to purchase body armor.

Unfortunately, I've reached that time where I actually have to spend some of my uniform allowance on an equipment item.

Can anyone recommend a place where I can buy body armor (threat level II or IIIA - any suggestions) for a reasonable price?

Thanks.

Who cares if Higgs in 012 has saggy tits, more important is that she wrote a mover to the wife of another 012th district police officer. She was informed that the person she stopped was the wife of a fellow 012 P.O. but stated she didn't care and wrote the ticket anyway. She has been "counseled" as to the error of her ways but states she is "in the right". She should consider transferring.

WHAT WILL WE DO? BITCH AND MOAN, AND CALL OUR UNIONS AND FRATERNAL BROTHERS, CALL IN SICK. BUT THE BOTTOM LINE IS THAT NO ONE WILL STRIKE. NO ONE WILL STICK TOGETHER.. EVERYONE WILL WAIT FOR SOMEONE ELSE TO STAY HOME OR STICK THEIR NECK OUT AND BE FIRED.

OH SURE THEY WILL BE LAWSUITS UP THE ASS, BUT IF YOU WANT A PAYCHECK YOU'LL SHOW UP AND RIDE IN THAT BEAT CAR BECAUSE YOU CAN'T AFFORD TO BE WITHOUT A PAYCHECK FOR WEEKS OR MONTHS OR A YEAR THAT IT WILL BE TIED UP IN LITIGATION.

OUR CONTRACT IS PRETTY MUCH WORTHLESS BECAUSE WE DO NOT HAVE BINDING ARBITRATION (AND THE CITY KNOWS THIS AND COULD CARE LESS WHAT JOB ACTIONS WE DO).

WHEN THE BILLS START ROLLING IN YOU WILL BE AT WORK, OR YOU WILL LOSE YOUR HOUSE, CAR, AND EVERYTHING ELSE YOU BOUGHT ON PLASTIC.

HAS THIS BEEN DONE BEFORE, YES!

THE FOP TRIED TO STOP PEOPLE FROM WORKING CTA SPECIAL EMPLOYMENT FOR STRAIGHT TIME BACK IN THE '80'S, AND IT WAS A MISERABLE FAILURE, EVERYBODY WAS LOOKING AFTER THEMSELF AND NOT FOR THE GROUP AS A WHOLE.

The people bitching about how shifty and morally corrupt lawyers are want those very same qualities when in need of an attorney themselves.

The duty of any attorney is to represent, to the best of their ability, the interests of the client. Sometimes that involves putting forth a defense that we all know is crap. Unfortunately, the rules of professional conduct dictate this.

Now I'm sure many of you non-laywers would simply say an attorney shouldn't take on case where the defendant's guilt is obvious. Remember though, all persons, no matter how guilty they actually are, are presumed innocent until so proven. Thus, they are entitled to quality defense representation under the 6th Amendment of the U.S. Constitution. Providing anything less would be a disservice to the entire criminal justice system.

So, hate us all you want, but think about this. . . next time you're in court testifying and a defense attorney pisses you off with his or her line of questioning, answer the question calmly and remember that he or she is only doing their job. I personally know many public defenders who actually like and appreciate the police. The only reason they are there rather than the State's Attorney's Office is because of the notable difference in pay. Remember, the typical attorney has over $130K in student loans outstanding upon graduation from law school.

Tim Walters was a sadistic moron in 015. He is a psycopath and should be evailuated. If he has any balls they are shrivled little raisons from all the steroids he has taken. That is a whole different thing from writing a DUI. Whether it was the right thing to do or not is not part of Walters problem. hell it was never an issue he enjoys causing pain. take a look at him it is the only thing that makes that creature smile

Anybody that calls another Police Officer a POS simply because he makes arrests is in fact probably a POS himself and should be ashamed of himself. I wouldn't know Patrick Kearns if he walked in the door and hit me over the head with a bat but even if he did I would not refer to him as a POS. YOU SIR SHOULD BE ASHAMED OF YOURSELF!

You guys are right. there are some bad dispatchers out there. That trio in 010/011 was the absolute bomb. I owe some serious gratitude to them. Anybody remember the girl that was dispatching 3rd watch when the car struck a pole at pulaski and gladys? She freaked out. but one of the regular crew came in and restored some semblance of order.

"Coppers" in 019?

The PPO's on their cycles in the ghetto are moreso "Coppers" than anyone who would put up with the bullshit in 019. Apparently nobody in 019 ever was, is, or will be a "COP".

Nice pinch Walters.

and what i was telling you is that any PPO in the ghetto is more of a COP than you are with your 12+ years on. with your 12+ years, you should know that such behavior is unnacceptable. keep up the work of a revenue agent.

Unless you were there at the stop with whoever arrested your buddy or whatever, you dont know how the DUI stop went down.

You talk all you want about courtesy and giving someone some slack on a DUI or letting a guy drive home (even if he is a gold star) or whatever.

Tell that bullshit to 16 year old Ahmad Shaban, 17 year old Mohammed Shuaibi, or 20 year old Juan Gonzalez......of course you'd have to talk pretty loud because they are in the cold cold ground. These people didnt do anything except get there ass killed. Do you want to tell me that law enforcement courtesy on a potential DUI pinch had nothing to do with their deaths?

Rationalize it by saying Walter is this, Walter is that or whatever to yourself as you look in the mirror...you probably will never "get it" anyway.
