Unbiased Media?

This story on the Channel 5 website:
  • Four Chicago traders who claim they were beaten up by off-duty police officers at a bar are filing a lawsuit.The suit alleges that the Jefferson Tap and Grille did nothing to prevent the fight last December and waited too long before calling police. It further claims that the tavern served alcohol to the intoxicated police officers who beat the plaintiffs "without warning and without provocation."
And the picture accompanying the Jefferson Tap story?

The Abbate video - with a clickable link so you can watch it again and again and again and again. Let's not have any more pretending that the media doesn't go out of it's way to make all coppers look like shit. The two incidents are similar only in that they took place in taverns and involved off duty police. But every time a scandal pops up, they're only using the Abbate video. Ridiculous.

Officers beware of the Assistant States Attorneys felony review office. An officer from the Area 2 Gun Team had a search warrant approved on April 9 in regards to the stolen CPS laptop computers. Within 45 minutes of the search warrant being approved, a supervisor from Felony Review called the Area 3 Detective Division and gave them all of the information from the search warrant. Area 3 detectives went to the house immediately. The target was not home and they conducted a search of the home and found nothing, but told the targets mother to have her son call them. 14 hours later, plenty of time to hide any evidence related to a crime, the target of the search warrant meets with the detectives in Area 3 for an interview.

When was the Area 2 Gun Team notified of these events? When they gave Area 3 a courtesy call to let them know they were executing a search warrant in relation to the stolen CPS laptops. Area 3 had all the information already, and stated they got it from an ASA at felony review. The rookie detective is now trying to play clean up and take the heat off of himself and point all of the blame at the ASA.

What ever happened to integrity? What if this had been a gun warrant or narcotics warrant and a target had been tipped off? What about officer’s safety? The very people who claim to uphold the law of the land are the very people tipping off their buddies in Area 3 for a little press time and glory. Officers be careful out here. It is unfortunate we can’t even trust our own brothers in blue or ASA anymore. I hope that rookie detective in Area 3 is proud of himself, I am sure he wont make the same rookie mistake twice.

The "camera car" test case has been presented to the department on a silver platter and this, boys and girls, is how the department will back you. Earlier this year a midnite traffic car stops a woman on LSD for speeding. She has has no licence or proof. PO tells her she has to go with him to the station to post a bond. Woman goes off and says she 's not going anywhere etc etc. PO gives her the go or arrest option. Woman states that she will make a complaint that he grabbed her breasts and MF'd her. Sure enough PO is served by IAD with charges and allegations on woman's SIGNED affidavit. BINGO.. entire episode is videotaped completely exonerating PO. PO asks IAD when complainant will be arrested. IAD replies that they're "not in the business of making these kinds of arrests" Want to give PO a day because bitch says he left her car running when he transported her. KNOCK KNOCK!!! DO ALL YOU HARD CHARGERS OUT THERE GET IT YET???

Fuck those trader pussies. They got their drunk asses kicked in a bar fight, probably for talking shit amongst other things, and now that the scumbag Abbate video is out they know this would be the perfect time to bring out the lawsuits on whomever will pay. FUCK YOU! They weren't the victims of a crime. They were just the losers of a bar fight most likely perpetrated equally by both sides. Those pussies got what they deserved. At the same time, those coppers involved should've been smarter than to get involved in some bullshit. There are hundreds of bars where you can go drink if you don't like the present company. Move along!!

The reason the video has not been shown, if it in fact exists, is that it has not been released to the media. It is my understanding that either the Yuppie's lawyers or the State's Attorney have demanded the video be impounded and not be released to the media. Something stinks to high heaven here.

It seems to most people who aren't Chicago cops, that it's Chicago cops themselves who go out of THEIR way to make all coppers look like shit.

Whine all you want; from start to finish, the Chicago PD and those individuals who make it up have painted an ACCURATE picture of that organization.

The video of that fat coward beating a woman more than 100lb.s smaller than himself has become shorthand for the Chicago PD and RIGHTFULLY so, ESPECIALLY given the unbroken string of acts of collusion and favoritism which followed the events portrayed therein. Get used to seeing that video. You'll be seeing a LOT more of it too.

Food for thought;

Why did they only release the part of the video of the officer beating the bar tender. What happened to the part of the video five or ten minutes before, and what may have lead up to the beating??????

As far as the second video with the so called business men. Not suing the CITY?? Why not?? Because that video shows the poor victims taunting and name calling and picking a bar fight before they got the shit slapped out of them by the now know Officers. Could it be because the Asshole who got his nose broke has been arrested for seveal other bar fights and has been thrown out or banned from all of the other bars in the area.

Remember there are two sides to every story. And as a Police officer you are always held to a higher standard.

Quit giving your money to these bars who will sell you out in a heartbeat. Drink at home and stay safe.

I talked to a friend of mine today who lives in Nashville about an article that I just came across the other day. He told me that the NEWS Media has kept this story under raps for as long as they could. It's a story about a young white couple that were murdered by four young black men . If that was the only thing that happened this would be the end of my story . I would like everyone to run the names of the victims and see all the stories that have be hid for a long time by the media. The names are Channon Christian & Christopher Newsom. The victims were beaten rapes and killed the female had one of her breasts cut off and was forced to swallow DRAINO the male's penis was cut off and he was burned and Channon was forced to watch. If this was white on black crime it would not leave the news. But it's black on white so they hide it why because their scared . SCREW the Media. Don't give them bastards shit. They SUCK ! That's my rant . I hope SCC prints this and everyone becomes aware of the incident.

Would you expect different from the so called media. Negative, bull-shit stories sell commercial time/ads. If you want feel good stories, watch religious channels or the oxygen network. Otherwise, stop watching/listening/reading the tripe they produce.
Also, stop giving them ammunition. We all know how stressed we are with the job, the media, the day in day out BS of dealing with the ghetto "baby mama's drama", and the bureaucracy. But you have to remember, any and all actions are magnified as soon as the media learns you are the Police. No disrespect to the FF who posted his opinion, but despite the "monkey" video and the occasional whore in the firehouse, you guys are heros, we are the asswholes. 99.9% of any story regarding the Police is negative. The only time we seem to get "good" press is when we run into a burning building like you to rescue willomena and her family because the space heater overloaded the antiquated electrical wiring that is overtaxed because the gas was shut off when the bill was over $3000 and hasn't been paid for in three years.
So remember, cameras are everywhere. Stay off TV. Don't give them anything, especially your time.

NEW YORK - MSNBC said Wednesday it will drop its simulcast of the "Imus in the Morning" radio program, responding to growing outrage about the radio host's racial slur against the Rutgers women's basketball team.

We should email MSNBC enmasse and demand that they put Imus back on the air. Jesse and Al have said worse things and only benefitted from them. Sharpton made anti semetic comments about a property owner that caused an arson that killed people. No boycott of him. Jesse is the ultimate racist. No boycott of him. His kids are racists and there is no boycott of Bud products in this city.

The time has come to expose the hypocrisy. Write the Sun times and demand that the racist and anti semite jesse Jackson's column be discontinued. Wrote all the media and demand that Al Sharpton be denied access to any media outlets. Imus did nothing wrong. He expressed his opinions under the protection of the United States Constitution.

Either we have rights or we are Russia. Fire the CEO of MSNBC.

Off police hating media topic......
Cheers to Imus having balls to try a joke in this tight wound politicaly correct society, jeers for his justifying a need for an apology.
A shock-jock saying something controversial, who cares. All he did was give the drum beaters an audience. With the exception of the F/2 Zurich who cleans up pretty good, a bunch of no-names tried to disguise thier "ghettoness" with warm up suits that covered up thier tattooed "ho" bodies. All doubt that they were "hoes" was removed when they began to speak, I can't wait to hear the questions they want to "axe" Imus.
As stated, the sad thing is that you now know thier names and they and thier coach are getting thier 15 minutes. But the saddest thing is how the media is stiring an empty pot and hanging the man for doing his job.
It was funny when he refered to sharpten and some congresswoman as "you people". Right away they over-react, he fires back with "I meant you two people" then showed disgust for the atypical reaction he got from them. Unfortunately that might have been what sealed his fate.
As has been demonstrated time and time again, you can have an opinion only if it is the same as the liberal media and educators who cram thier agenda down the thoats of the sponge students.

I don't see the point in Imus personally meeting with the Rutgers ladies basketball team, as the hurt is all said and done, and I'm sure the ladies are all over it by now.

A police officer could stop a rapist from their a editors mother and they still will print or show the CPD in a bad light. Because these folks are driven by greed and ratings, not for the greter good of the city.

If it makes the CPD look better. Start a Chicago media ride along program. Place our favorite reporters in a Uniform. and get them to arrest an HIV infected bum, or spit on by people who have Hep A, and are the first ones on scene to drunken domestic, or a gangbanger party where every other dude has a peppered back upon lifting their shirt.

Freedom of the press, who cares when it hurts the nation instead of helping it. The press is just as bad as Osama at times with the celebrity focused news stories, and how they hate the police and active duty soldiers serving in Iraq.

It hasn't been released because the States Attorney's Office still has it and probably won't charge the coppers because the tape shows them being taunted and the so-called victims actually starting the fight. It's the same with the other Abbate tape, the out of state copper pushes Abbate twice before Abbate defends himself and lays the guy out, mutual combat, no charges. The Department will dish out big time in both incidents.

I just concluded my first study, it was done by a neither Northwestern University, NAACP or New York Times. 167 straight jobs, calls and arrests with a M/1 as offender. What broke the cycle you ask? An F/1... And you want to tell me that CPD is the problem. I'm proud (and anyone reading this site... that is a the CPD) should be proud what we do. Stop grilling each other and focus on my high speed study and realize that reality is reality. Am I a racist?...

Some of you guys are advocating some really nasty stuff. If you want to put your name and occupation on a letter demanding the return of Imus to the airwaves, you do so while shaming the dept. What he said was disgusting. He's apologized, and even after all that, he's taken a hit in the pocketbook as well with the 2 wk. suspension. I don't see the point in Imus personally meeting with the Rutgers ladies basketball team, as the hurt is all said and done, and I'm sure the ladies are all over it by now.
Meeting with them to say what has been said already is pointless. MOVE ON EVERYONE, ALREADY. INFRACTION NOTED, NO MORE DISCIPLINARY ACTION NEEDED.

The worst kept secrets for years have been these. Pam Zekman has been having a long term affair with former Medical Examiner Edmund Donohue.

Get your facts straight. The Area Three detective went to the house before you guys got your warrant. So go f--- yourself.
Could somebody please explain why the area two "GUN" team is executing a search warrant for "COMPUTERS"on a case that has nothing to do with guns, gangs drugs, or Area Two? Why would they get a warrant without first contacting A/3 to see the facts of the case? Isn't the supervsor and affiant supposed to have all of the facts before they obtain and execute a warrant? The Supervising sergeant (Sgt R) should be dumped. This is exactly the COWBOY mentality which has lead to numerous scandals The irresponsible actions of the Area Two gun clowns has created asituation which will make it more difficult to solve this case. Thanks jagoffs. I guess all of the bashing on this blog of these idiots has been validated.

Fuck those trader pussies. They got their drunk asses kicked in a bar fight, probably for talking shit amongst other things, and now that the scumbag Abbate video is out they know this would be the perfect time to bring out the lawsuits on whomever will pay. FUCK YOU! They weren't the victims of a crime. They were just the losers of a bar fight most likely perpetrated equally by both sides. Those pussies got what they deserved. At the same time, those coppers involved should've been smarter than to get involved in some bullshit. There are hundreds of bars where you can go drink if you don't like the present company. Move along!!

Jefferson Tap incident You guys make me sick those officers were wrong and because they have juice the public doesn't know their names, fuck them officers they are nothing but shit heads with connections you don't even know what damage these morons have done to the rest of us.

in the sun times there was the story of these 4 individuals calling the copper who was upset over the passing of his father a "pussy". and afterwards these 4 individuals came back to the bar and made the comment that they "were gonna own this place". number 1 they should shut their mouths and take it like men that they called the officer a "pussy" and got their asses kicked as a result. number 2 beating by the statement that they would "own this place" to me looks like thats what they were in it for, the money. dont hear that played over and over in the media do you?


This story is a lie started by research and development to try and do some damage control. The officers from the Jefferson Tap beatings have connections officer P for one and a sgt was involved keep in mind boys and girls when a white shirt is involved the spin begins.

Last time I checked Area 2 gun teams are P.O.'s not Detectives and those stolen lap tops were not assigned to them. They should have given any information they had to the Detective that was ASSIGNED the case and NOT SAT ON INFORMATION on a pending case for their own advancement.

Seems to me that the GUN TEAM was wrong on this one.

Here is a hint for the future, when you gain information or an informant on a pending case that is assigned to a detective, you should reach out to the detective with the information and NOT hold onto it for yourself so that you can get the glory, glory boys.

It's his case to dispose of, not yours.

That story from Nashville is some of the worst shit, I have ever heard. I've seen and sat through trials of crazy shit, but that poor couple! And no one called that racial, What the fuck is wrong with people?

Sharpton, Jackson or every other black leader should be ashamed of themselves for this Imus bullshit and do some serious damage control in Nashville.

What 7:27 said is not even the half of it, they raped this girl over a four day period repeatedly and urninating on her as they tortured her husband by raping him, beating him, cutting off his dick and leaving him to die. The poor girl then after being raped for about the fiftith time, these animals cut not one of her breasts off, but both of them off and forcing draino down her throat, and
watched her die as they party.

Let me say that if these animals are not the poster children of Rainbow Push on crack I don't know what is. Equal rights for who? These self admitted black leaders only start shit when it is convenant for themselves and the cameras to line their pockets.

The media has left this to a one night coverage and a blurb on the cable news channels. But, no full exposure and still a horrific crime committed by pure animals, regardless of black or white.

The truth be told, if it was white on black, it would have been the worst racial crime ever. But it happen to be black on white and nobody cares.

Welcome to the world that the liberials created.

An officer from the Area 2 Gun Team had a search warrant approved on April 9 in regards to the stolen CPS laptop computers.

AND ANYONE WITH A BRAIN WOULD ASK WHY THE A/2 GUN TEAM WOULD GET A SEARCH WARRANT FOR AN A/3 THEFT CASE THAT HAS GENERATED A LOT OF MEDIA ATTENTION WITH PEOPLE CRAWLING OUT OF THE WOODWORK CALLING A/3 (NOT THE A/2 GUN TEAM) THINKING THEY KNOW WHO TOOK THOSE STOLEN LAPTOPS. YA THINK THE CLOWNS ON THE A/2 GUN TEAM WOULD HAVE FOLLOWED PROPER PROTOCOL AND CALLED THE INVESTIGATING AREA BEFORE CONTACTING FELONY REVIEW FOR A WARRANT TO SEE IF THEY WOULDN'T BE BLOWING SOMETHING THAT A/3 WAS ALREADY WORKING ON. NOOO, THEY WENT OFF HALF-COCKED AND MADE FOOLS OF THEMSELVES. IF THEY HAD A LEAD, BY ALL MEANS, GO FOR IT, BE THE HERO, SOLVE THE CASE AND GOD BLESS, BUT LET THE DICKS HANDLING THE INVESTIGATION KNOW WHAT THE HELL YOU ARE DOING FIRST ASSHATS.

I TOOK ALL THE A/2 GUN TEAM BASHING ON HERE WITH A GRAIN OF SALT PRIOR TO THIS FIASCO, NOW I SEE THAT IT IS WELL DESERVED. YOUR STUPIDITY IS ONLY COMPOUNDED BY POSTING ABOUT IT.

When I was commissioned an officer in the United States Army, I swore an oath to support and defend the Constitution of the United States of America. Affiliation with the Chicago PD would conflict with the spirit of that oath.

If you're short of bodies, have you considered recruiting from the Iranian Pasdaran or the Saudi Police for the Suppression of Vice and the Promotion of Virtue? Either of them should give you plenty of recruits with the same dedication to the dignity of women as so gallantly displayed by Officer Abbate.

Obviously you did not know him , and have been misled. Far from the truth, Commander P was in charge of the BIS program. He was corrupt and falsified reports from other white shirts to fuck over Police Officer who did not have juice. Contrary to what you think he was a true company man.

to retired guy:
I think having a group of retired cops who will go to the media is a great idea. I think if we form a group we can exert more pressure for the media to be truthful. One person can call the papers, the columnists or the radio stations but who cares or listens? But a group of people can maybe draw a little more attention to an incident.
The whole thing with the 25th dist. is crap. How can Cline make that decision without having any facts? He did the same thing with Meeks and the Sgt. Goes off to apologize and hug and soothe the people when the confrontation was no where near the way Meeks told it.
It's just getting crazy out there. I would rather try to do something to keep things real than do nothing. It's frustrating.
