This Could Be Huge

  • Marco Morales — the crooked Chicago contractor who skipped town in 1997 after he was convicted in Operation Silver Shovel — is back in custody in Mexico, authorities said today.

    Morales was arrested by Mexican authorities on a U.S. warrant for a 2006 cocaine distribution charge, said Randall Samborn, spokesman for the U.S. attorney’s office in Chicago.

    A spokesman for the U.S. Embassy in Mexico said he was in custody and the government has 60 days to file a formal extradition request with Mexico, if it has not done so already.

John Kass is drooling over this one. So are lots of other people who love to see the City politicos take a giant hit. We're betting on a whole bunch of sleepless nights ahead for a number of people.

This could be the beginning of the end for the HDO and the entire Daley corruption machine. I'm sure he bolted to Mexico after getting jammed up and making his deal with the G to rat out the whole corrupt bunch. Tony Munoz, Victor Reyes, Martin Sandoval, Manny Flores and Roberto Maldonado will be looking over their shoulders for the next few months, waiting for Fitz to tap them on the shoulder.

Pack your bags boys, the end is near.

Its strange, there are several felons who have fled to Mexico on drug charges and are never found. Maybe the Dept of Justice put the heat on Mexican authorities to find this guy? I hope I see the end of the Daley regime soon! This might be another brick in the wall.

This in today's SunTimes:

Daley mocks 'machoism' of GOP hopeful Thompson
VIOLENCE | Calls gun show appearance 'a political stunt'

September 21, 2007

Mayor Daley ridiculed Republican presidential hopeful Fred Thompson on Thursday for strutting his stuff -- and showing off his "machoism" -- by campaigning at gun shows.

The mayor set his sights on Thompson after joining the International Association of Chiefs of Police in unveiling a new report on ways to prevent gun violence. Financed by the Joyce Foundation, the report includes 39 recommendations on ways to protect and better train police officers, control access to guns and improve public safety.


It would be nice if us in law enforcement were told what these 39 recommendations are. I'll bet we could come up with more than 39 ways to improve public safety.

I thought there was NO extradition from Mexico to the USA. There is 100's if not 1000's of outstanding arrest warrants for Mexican citizens for murder obtained by various local, state of federal U.S. authorities. I never see any of these wanted murderers arrested and sent back.

If anything, this guy's arrest has soemthing to do he was wanted for in Mexico, I don't see the Mexican authorities sending back a very rich guy from Mexico. I see a big payoff and he is back enjoying some rest at his casa in via Mexico.

The Mexico authorities only arrested this person because he is a U.S. citizen living as an Illegal Alien in Mexico.

Mexico only exports Illegal Aliens they never allow imports.

So what's going to come down? Kassie-boy seemed to suggest that Marco was threatened by some 26th Street types? Are the Mexi's in bed with the Outfit?

I don't wotk for Chicago but I am in Law enforcement. I was called to the 23rd district the other night for an arrest they made. they caught a gypsy who had 3 different id cards from three different states all with his picture but all had different names. He also had 4 or 5 different credit cards for each name. This is a text book crime and the worlds easiest arrest. You charge him accordingly and contact the detectives. Well, the Area 3 Det. showed up and this gut didnt have a clue what he was doing. He actually didnt think we could arrest the guy. WTF!!! I'm not saying that the Feds are any smarter then A/3 Det's but this guy made a good case for it. Let me try and help the A/3 Det's .
step #1 open up a ILCS book and in it they have a list of the crimes and the statute and lots of definitions of big words. Step #2 find the crime you are looking for. Step #3 write down the crime/its definition and the ILCS# so you can put it on the arrest report. Step #4 contact states attorney if guidelines tell you to. Step #5 DO NOT PRETEND YOU ARE THE STATES ATTORNEY AND DENY CHARGE BEFORE THEY DO!!! Step #6 Stop being a lazy ass piece of shit and actually do somethong worth a pay check. Step#7 QUIT SAYING "YOU GOT NOTHING KID" BECAUSE YOU ARE NOT ON NYPD BLUE!!
Step #8 Pretend to be competent. Step #9 when speaking to the states attorney do not try and help get the case REJECTED because that would make you a mule Step#10 Buy a new suit and tie Step #11 Quit staring at the hot female det with the fake rack and do some real police work

SCC / NEW TOPIC:

Video Leads to Firing of Mo. Officer

(In case anyone missed it.. here's the original video:

http://youtube.com/watch?v=EUbU4_4og1o

FROM: The Associated Press

Friday, September 21, 2007; 9:22 AM

ST. GEORGE, Mo. -- A police sergeant whose berating of a driver was captured on videotape has been fired.

Aldermen in the town of St. George, a St. Louis suburb, voted 5-0 in a closed meeting Monday to fire Sgt. James Kuehnlein. Notice of the firing was posted Wednesday at City Hall.

Kuehnlein's attorney, Travis L. Noble, said the officer received a letter Thursday detailing the reasons for his firing. Noble said he would review the letter with Kuehnlein before deciding on a course of action.

Brett Darrow, 20, had a video recorder inside his car when Kuehnlein approached him in a commuter lot in the early hours of Sept. 7.

In a video that was widely viewed on the Internet, Kuehnlein is heard taunting and threatening Darrow, sometimes shouting and using profanity.

"It's what I wanted the whole time," Darrow told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch. "The conduct was not forgivable."

Police Chief Scott Uhrig said he recommended that Kuehnlein be fired based both on his language in the tape and because he violated department policy when he failed to tape the encounter himself with his police car's camera.

I got news for you, Mr. "SWAT guy"...When we can' even keep a decent fleet of marked cars up and running on these streets, where in the hell do you expect the city to dole out money to buy 70 cars for all you SWAT guys? From what I've seen, you'd still all show up piecemeal when you get called out.
Even now, many of you don't return calls when you're paged to come out on calls. So if I were you, I wouldn't expect that "City Explorer" you all thought you were going to get in the beginning. There is NO ROOM at Homan Square for 70 additional cars over there anyway. The NAGIS, gang Intel, Vice, CAGE, Asset Forfeiture and regular SOS staff barely have room to park there already.You have to join sos to get on swat

These 2 statments are absolutely stupid, for 1, just about anyone can go to SOS now, for pete's sake they advertised it in the daily bulletin about accepting applications to SOS---- not in my 20 year career have I ever seen it advertised, so if you wanna go to SWAT all you have to do is apply---there is no more excuses... 2ndly what the hell do you think the swat guys take to work now at homan square, its ther personal cars. we don't take the bus to work, so whats the difference our personal car or a squad at homan square--- I don't see how this adds to over crowding.. next time think before you speak!!!!

You got to be kidding. mark and the spineless boys would never support a member like that, look at the difference Mette/white on white, vs Jena six Black on white.

Look at Durkin park, were are the white people. All backed down to ballless states attorneys office. Even if the kid had died no one would be charged.

They ought to give Mettte a donation to pay for a court injunction and an appeal to the Iowa state supreme court.

We have to decertify the FOP, we have to stick together like the firemen. We will never control the FOP with the meeting attendance rule. Any member in good standing should be eligible to run for office like the firefighters union. mark stays in control because he has cronies who attend the eight meetings a year versus the working police officers with families,@ other obligations(side jobs and court, f up shifts)

Morales not only fled the city and state, he fled the country. Therefore, even if the statute of limitations came into play, the clock would have stopped in 1997.

Morales was found guilty, had a sentence in place, then fled to avoid having to testify and serve his 59 months. The statute of limitation never applied.

Conspiracy theories only work if there's an element of truth in them.
