Burge Again

  • Legal and activist groups claim that a special prosecutor's probe into allegations of police torture under former police Commander Jon Burge was insufficient.

    As CBS 2's Kristyn Hartman reports, a highly critical report endorsed by more than 200 groups was released on Tuesday morning. The groups are petitioning for a federal investigation, and believe it's a very real possibility the U.S. Attorney could act where special prosecutors did not.
So this "activist group" can just march in with a completely separate report and demand investigations continue until someone somewhere comes up with a result they like? And that's hardly the most ridiculous point:
  • Bowman said the major problems included:
  • A lack of criminal indictments of anyone in the case;
  • The failure to examine responsibility of the Cook County state's attorney's office that was then run by Mayor Richard M. Daley;
  • And not acknowleding the systemic and racist nature of the torture.
Um...didn't the report find that the statute of limitations had expired? Therefore the criminal indictment point is moot. The mayor is on record denying over and over again that he knew anything about torture in Area 2. So be it on that count - more lawsuits aren't going to shake that tree. And acknowledging the torture was systemic and racist? Please. Systemic? Maybe. Racist? That would imply that Burge targeted members of a certain ethnic minority based simply on the color of their skin. Call us naive, but we're pretty sure that Burge targeted people who were probably described in the case reports. Racism is a stretch in this case.

Devine was Daley's 1st Deputy in the States Attorneys' office during Burge. What does Devine have to say?

It's a Radical lawyer daisey-chain connected by radical activists in the media and waxed by the many lazy journalists who paint with a broad brush, as opposed to real work, with two things in mind:

1. Undermine all confidence in Law Enforcement and the Criminal Justice system.

2. Cash in a Taylor-made Lotto ticket

Locke Bowman and his heavily funded MacArthur Center for Justice ( handed it's Ivy League posterior lobes by Sheriff Sheahan BTW)and G. Flint Taylor's Peoples Law Office ( with none other than academic fraud Ward Churchill teaching the U of C kiddies from the suburbs how to frame clever rhetoric at Harper Hall on Thursday nights) will always have great face time from their pals at Medill and beyond.

They had twenty (20) count 'em twenty 'concerned human beings' doing the howl at Daley Center and the dopes in the media got wet britches over this 'eggshell' of a story.

It keeps the wool-hat, soul patch Starbucks junkies in good Reader re-writes.

Burge will be fossil fuel before G. Flint cashes his dog-eared Lotto ticket. This Dog won't hunt - so it's important to keep the media in his wallet right next to that dog-eared cardboard.

G.Flint gets almost as much face-time as Oprah!

The Burge stuff is never going away. I wish it would, but it isn't. The scumbags are going to keep at it until Burge is either indicted or dead.

Get over it! He's never going to get prosecuted, and Daley will never testify. I though Devine was retiring?

Burge can't be indicted, it's called the statute of limitations. The only reason this is still going on is because the lawyers didn't like the results of the multi million taxpayer dollar study which in turn makes their frivilous lawsuits harder.

Are you kidding us Jon Burge was found guilty, however the reason it went on for 5 years is to reach the statute of limitations in order to cover for daley who was states attorney and devine who was daley's asst. guess what if they fucked over you or your, officer they would do the same to you.

I also have a Revolver and remember what happened back in the day. I know one thing for sure Jon Burge along with Joe Miedzianowski has done so much damage to this dept, yet you keep covering up for them. You officer would confess if you were getting the shit beat out of you, meanwhile the real offender goes free. (great police work?) These two were sickening always trying to put a case on anyone only to clear it? Cover up was done for Daley and Devine. Fuck the code of silence, unless we use it on your sorry ass.
