Mette Update

If you want to comment on the CNN story, hop over to this link. We're told that if enough interest is generated, they sometimes do a follow up and bring a bit of heat to bear. It can't hurt and time is running out. The 13 comments we saw are running more against Mike than for, so we need to get a little positive spin out there. Keep it civil.

Did you read the crap on that cnn blog. Someone picks a fight and that person gets his ass kicked.

If Mette wasnt a cop this would of been no big deal. This is why I tell every Chicago Copper I work with. Dont do a damn thing. answer your calls write paper and thats it.

At the Mette benefit at F.O.P. Hall Friday night, Northside unveiled the most qualified candidate for the new superintendent. He's even willing to take the job that nobody wants.

"BOOMER" FOR SUPT.!

The reason there is no positive comments on the CNN/Mike Mette blog is the evil media choose to only publish the NEGATIVE. Several people I know have attempted to post a positive comment. It was not published on the blog. If you read the editors note, a mendacious disclaimer of sorts (?) they state they receive hundreds of comments and cannot print them all. Bull-F'n-Shit!!!! Typical of the malevolant portrayal of CPD, CFD and OEC that is the day to day reporting; they print what they want the public to read, hear, see, providing it shows the above mentioned city servants in a negative light. Fuck The Press!!

F%$ck Bill O'Rilley, since this story broke I’ve sent him Fox news several E-mails, no response no nothing, He’s more interested wining and dining the race batter and hater Al Sharpton than sticking up for a regular guys civil rights like Mette.

I tried to post a comment as well on their blog. I never stated I was a PO nor did I use any harsh or vulgar language. My comment didn't make it either.

The judge never holds Jake to any ethethical rules only Mette. She should have considered his illegal charging for drinking, his 0.29 BA, and his not walking away when his cellphone was "alledgely" stolen. Jake "should" have called the cops vs. having him and his friend chase Mette down. It should have been a simple assault charge w probation.

The fact Mette was sentenced to 5 years in an Iowa jail has nothing to do with him being a police officer. The crime he was convicted of mandates that sentence in Iowa. His brother and his friends gave conflicting accounts about what happened. Mette lied when he said he only hit the guy once. Mette's own brother said he hit and kicked him more than once in his statement to police. The DA in the Iowa town released the statements of all the witnesses. The "victim" is a screw up and drunk, granted, but Mette put himself in this position. The victim was not injured to the point of any life threatening condition, but he was hit more than once according to medical experts and Mette's own witnesses. The DA has even said he wanted to plea bargin this case to a misdemeanor conviction, but Mette and his lawyers refused numerous attempts to do so. I feel sorry for Mette, or any fellow PO involved in something like this. I gave money to his defense fund, but I'm getting sick of hearing how he's being railroaded because he is the police. He rolled the dice in court and lost. Iowa state law dictates the prison sentence for this kind of conviction. I hope we all feel sorry for him, help him financially, and support him during these difficult times. However, the law is the law. We would not let the state of Iowa tell us how to enforce Illinois law. Be careful people, especially in another state or even another county in Illinois. Not everywhere is "give em probation" Cook County.

I agree with the guy who said Mette "rolled the dice" in court. Hate to see a PO go to jail, but his beef should be with his lawyer not the system. If he was offered a plea to a reduced charge and turned it down, I'm sure he and his lawyer talked about it. I assume the lawyer explained the sentencing guidelines of Iowa should he go to trial on the felony charge. If his own brother and friends gave damaging statements then WTF. You know what's at stake if you lose. Take the reduced charge. Do a suspension. Learn a lesson. Get on with your life. I never heard a thing about this miscarriage of justice before, or during the trial. Only after Mette did not get the result he wanted in court. I went to college in Iowa. They like and respect the police. I bet the last thing they wanted to do was convict an off duty PO for pounding on some drunk trouble maker. But I think Mette and his lawyers arrogance got the best of them. Though I do hope he makes it out of this okay.

While all stories have three sides....yours, mine, and the truth. The roll the dice comments are missing key facts. The number of times being struck had little to do with anything. The Judge's comments were that she felt the college kid was at fault, but the severity of his injuries was the key. She was told by the second Hosp. that his injuries were not as serious as first reported yet the Judge still considered the first Hosp. anyway.....WHY???
Why didn't the kid get arrested and charged accordingly. Getting a beat down doesn't exempt you from the crimes you commit. I'm 5'6, if some dude who is 6'4 and 6'10 came after me all drunk and stupid, he's rolling the dice with his life. I would be in fear of getting beat to death so anything goes. It all makes sense though, we put lawyers on the battle field and charge troops with murder in the middle of War. FUBR
