US Marshall Accused

Somewhere, Sam Gerard is cringing:
  • A deputy U.S. marshal was taken into custody today for allegedly leaking "highly sensitive, confidential information" to organized crime figures about a key witness in the FBI's investigation of more than a dozen unsolved Chicago mob killings.

    John Thomas Ambrose, 38, was charged in a criminal complaint with revealing information related to "the status, substance of cooperation and travel" of Nicholas Calabrese, a defendant and key witness in the FBI's Operation Family Secrets investigation, according to a news release from the U.S. attorney's office. Ambrose made the alleged leak while Calabrese was in the federal witness protection program, the release said.
It'll be interesting to see if the Feds, so often willing to drop cases against dope dealers and gang bangers if they can even get a sniff of a cop, are going to go full bore on one of their own. This goof could have thrown a huge wrench into the "Family Secrets" trials scheduled for this summer. Tribune and Channel 2 coverage here.

John Ambrose is a decent guy as was his father. Remember who is making the charge against him, the FBI. Easilly the most inept, incompetant, wanna be police organization in the US.

Did the man wearing a size 6 shoe and carrying a cocked and locked "Lady Smith" have a hand in burning the young Ambrose like he did his old man? Inquiring minds want to know...

My apologies, but can someone give me a short version of what happened with the Marquette 10 case. I tried to look it up google, yahoo, and even the Chicago Trib archives but they only have stories online from 1985 and older. Wasn't the case in the early 80's ?

You can say what you want about John , He's a good kid . I just think we shouldn't rush to judgement on this one. After all it's the FBI that investigated the charges and that unit is made up of a bunch of wannabes . They couldn't make a pimple on a real copper's ass. I sure hope they lose this one. God Bless you John .

Rumor, Rumor,Rumor.....

I got it from a good source at 35th Street that the Supervisors in 008 are going to be issues boxes of Kleenex tissues and Pamper diapers to wipe the noses and asses of the whiny and useless officers that work in 008.

Its funny that the second wave of the Marquette 10 are now ALL Lt's and above.

Hey wasnt the SUP there during that time?

Pyramid West Realty owned the shopping center at Roosevelt and Kedzie. Sold it and after a few name changes distanced themselves from the true behind the scenes puppet masters.

011 Tact had a list of address's they use to "sweep" as a "favor" to a LT a that worked at 11th & State.

Boulevard Habitat Management has about 1300 rental units on douglas and in 011, The Building collapse in 010, and they are all head quartered on paper at 1120 S Homan

when corey flagg was arrested he , and his father were torn apart. Ambrose however is not. Sometimes you don't even recognize racism until you step back and look at the situation again. I'm a Black guy, Fuck Flagg, his daddy, Ambrose, and his daddy. All four fucked us as a group. So FUCK THEM. And for the people who think Ambrose was set up, then you should say Flagg, and Dink was set up, even Troutman. Most of us who use or brain just think they all finally got caught.

John Ambrose one of the best I've ever worked with. Tenacious, personal, and I hope still beyond reproach. He was absolutely one of the best the Marshall's Service ever had, tracking down and capturing some of the most high-profile criminals throughout this country. I've had the pleasure of working with John on numerous occasions, and sincerely hope that its not true. Again, it is the FBI, so who will ever really know the real, unenhanced story. My thoughts go out to you John.

I know johhny and he is a good guy. He has a big heart and even according to the fed's there is no direct link that his info caused any damage. But yet again, you guys want to burn a guy based on partial info and rumor. "I heard this,I heard that". He watched as his dad was tried in court. No way did John do what they think he did. I cant believe it, especially after watching his dad.

John, I will support you until the end. But if it is true, stand up, admit it, apologise to everyone, and take your punishment. You swore an oath.

MARQUETTE TEN SHORT VERSION: CPD narcotics investigated and arrested a group of drug dealers. They were tried and sentenced to long terms. The FBI interviewed them and they said they had paid 10th Dst. police. The drug dealers testified against the police and all got their sentences shortened and or erased. And no, Cline was not in ten at the time.

Marquette 10 INFORMANTS!? HA!!!

All those [alleged] informants for the FBI, *Jim Thompson, *Dan Webb were all later arrested for pitching dope by the 010 Tact Team, "The Wild Bunch."
It seems they [continued] to sell dope with impunity as most coppers were reluctant to lock them up for fear of having repercussions with the "G".
In comes "Buzzy" and his team and all those goofs, one-by-one went to jail for their continued illegitimate dealings.

* Jim Thompson later used this case as a stepping stone to become Governor
* Dan Webb is a high-priced Attorney NOW defending the same type of people he once prosecuted as US Attorney.
Together Webb, Thompson and their [prestigious] law firm defended Gov. Ryan pro Bono to the tune of millions of dollars [NO CHARGE]
Me thinks that Ryan knows where the skeletons are at in BOTH Thompson's AND Webb's closet.
Aaaah, yes, they call it Lawyer/Client privilege.

People who live in glass houses......

And NOW you know the rest of the story....Good Day!

No Kline was not in 10 at the time of the incident, but he was a tact Sergt. immediately before it all went down. If what happened to the marshall is as the media states, it just tells you what a piece of rotten shit that guide is.

If you're looking for information on the Marquette 10, just ask Kline. He could also fill you in on Burge and Miedzianowski, as long as he's not violating his Grand Jury oath. What a guy!

some of the best in law enforcement are borderline criminals. maybe that's why JA wa good at what he did?

I think the USMS is highly over rated. Worked for them, and with them on the CPD. They don't make cases, they do follow up work.

Quit defending the Marq. 10.
Lotta guys walked away with no jail time. Some forced to resign, some rewarded.

Dumb s@#ts there was NO wire involved in the Marquette 10 case. Cline was a Sgt. in Narcotics and his team made the case on the two dope spots, 22 & Avers run by Green Smith and Milton Kelly and 16 & Christiana run by Charles Wilson (CW) and yes his brother also Charles Wilson. A nieve US Atty, named Schwitzer started to beleive the scum bag dealers and along with Dan Webb, the accused child molester, started the case against 010 tact. Again, there was NO wire, NO video's, nothing but the testimony of the drug dealers.

Once again Fat Phil Cline took the 5th for the dept, this is true it's in the records and news articles Cline was rewarded for his work insofar as some officers going down.officers with juice were taken care, some things never change. I worked for a former asst attorney now in private pratice He related indeed the other poster was correct some went to jail.( no juice )other were taken care of rewards, others got lucky. Don't miss the point the officers had been shaking down the dope man. Understand something the corruption hurt us. WE THE PEOPLE
