Finnigan Names Names

In light of reports that everyone and their brother is talking to the feds in a desperate attempt to cut deals to avoid prison, it seems the big name himself is talking.

Channel 5 is reporting a plea deal with Finnigan and he's naming BIG names.

What has he got to offer? Probably who moved him around to different units in an effort to quash investigations. Maybe who got money? Retired names along with active bosses? Links to follow when available.

UPDATE: Sun Times story

Oh, SNAP! You mean it's not true that the federal charges against Jerry won't be dropped for lack of evidence? Shizznit!! SCC, that Snethens dude owes you and the readers an apology. For real.

Hey, Kool Aid Kid, why don't you and your fat friend crank up your factless rumor machine and try to blame the FOP for Jerry squealingto the feds. You do it for everything else. Oh, wait, Mike Ficaro is not an FOP lawyer. Double rat farts!! You mean FOP has nothing to do with this? Don't let the facts stand in your way. A shit disturber such as yourself never lets the facts get in the way.

Going back to one of your Threads "Fair Trial" you and a number of people labeled an officer a snitch and rat. You also implied that Finnegan could not get a fair trial because of "media slant". Now let me guess you and the rest of these doofuses(sp) still want to defend this j**off, Finnegan because...... he was a great cop. Let this be a lesson to all of you!!!!!! Finnegan is a piece of shit!!!! He just happens not to be black, hispanic,a female who took some silly as pictures by a plane, gay, any boss who stood up to you or named Obama. But my guess, SCC, is that you in your immature, racist, small-world mind, will continue try to defend him. Give it up!!! Yeah I know, he's going to give up some bosses. Guess who has no crdibility on a witness stand??? Need a hint? Rhymes with Bennigan!!! Time for you to give it up, because all along you have defended this mope, initially not allowing people to mention his name like nobody could figure it out. Give it up SCC time for you to admit that you have been wrong or shut down the blog. You were totally irresponsible and are being called to task. Yeah I know I'm an asshat because I don't agree with the great almighty SCC. I hope he takes down this boss and I hope this boss is going to jail. Whatever!!! Fucking losers. In the case of a lot of officers, bosses, who worked with or tried to help Finnegan, "There before the grace of God goes I." A lot of decent policeman who may or may not have known any better or looked the other way or tried to look out for what they all considered a good guy are going to be hung out to dry by one ass**** and one ass**** only. Finnegan is the screwup and maybe some bosses who had "balls" (your favorite freaking word) are now going to go down because they tried to help this worn out piece of feces.

A sampling of stupidity:

Going back to one of your Threads "Fair Trial" you and a number of people labeled an officer a snitch and rat.

A lie. We said no such thing and we defy you to prove it. Comments left by readers made that allegation and called Herrera those names.

But my guess, SCC, is that you in your immature, racist, small-world mind, will continue try to defend him. Give it up!!!

Again, prove any of that. You are obviously deluded to not be able to separate what our comments are and what we've posted. We've never defended Finnigan, nor have we ever accused him. We've provide a venue to debate the issue, links to pertinent articles and added commentary to provoke discussion.

Give it up SCC time for you to admit that you have been wrong or shut down the blog. You were totally irresponsible and are being called to task.

Who died and made you king of the blog? We answer to Seiser and no one else. You are high, delusional, stupid and who knows how many different kinds of moron?

Yeah I know I'm an asshat because I don't agree with the great almighty SCC.

Well, you got the asshat part right. Thanks for recognizing our greatness and the almighty-ness. Jackass.

Unless Finnegan can give up an unsolved murder what good is he? The state and feds have either said publicly, or implied through charges that he's purely a criminal with a badge. So what if he moved from Patrol to Gangs South to 7 Tact to SOS to Midway to 8 tact, then back to SOS. If you move from one unit to another any pending cr numbers aren't just forgotten because you no longer work in the unit you got them in. Bosses loved him because he brought in a lot of guns and dope. They moved him around as favors. So what? Where is the crime in that. Unless he's got big bosses, not just a Sgt or Lt, on video taking money from him, he's no good to anyone. He wanted to kill fellow police officers! What credibility does he have now? He's facing life in prison! He'll tell the feds anything they want to hear. Bosses moving guys from unit to unit aint against the law. And I'm not defending Finnegan. I just don't see how a guy who only one month ago wanted to kill up to six police officers has any credibility at all.

Hey LAD slow down. Please show us when SCC has ever stood up for the SOS crew. SCC has been fair and impartial. Hey if you can do it better why dont you start your own blog. You are obviously a merit suck whole supervisor, typical opininated vicious attack. Ure just as bad as our brothers calling people snithes etc. I dont agree or condone misconduct but it is what it is, show were SCC intentionally misled us?

If it wasnt for this blog ninety percent of us would never have heard of poor Mike Mettee.

This blog at least is an outlet for us since our police union is worthless. Get a life dont be pissed off, I havent found one guy yet who has condoned the unfortunate mess these coppers got into. Your not a as////nor is the blog moderator.

In fact I worry about the boys because the holdays are approaching and lets not forget the fact more of our guys die by suicide than in the line of duty.

And yes I am praying for them and their families because they didnt envision going to the joint for life the day they were sworn in.

So what some one vents here and is offensive who gives a whoot.

you made your speech, but let me see you do it better.

Jerry can name all he wants. Even if Finnigan is telling 100 percent truth, what good is his statements? The Feds will never rest a charge on another with just Jerry saying this person did something. Feds always want 3 sources to charge and/or direct wire taps or video.

You think the feds are going to charge a bunch of supervisors and lets say Jerry committs suicide, the Feds would be stuck with nothing but BIG LAW SUITS.

Trust me when I say this. No exempt members will even hear of this for the fact that the feds and everyone knows that the exempts may be in charge of the units, but any cr numbers that are brought down on there officers are handled by the sgts and lts. the sgts and lts then follow up on the crs and only thing the commanders get is the outcome and recomendations. no criminal charges can come to an exempt for making a recomendation. if the bosses, lts or exempts were not caught "red handed" on tape or video then this will go nowhere. you cannont convict someone based on the fact that a gangster with a badge said so. dont forget.. these days you need a little something other than a mans word.. its called proof.

The "G" leaked it to make the white shirts squirm, just in case on of them wants to turn.

The question that has to be answered is:

If you were an exempt, had knowledge of all his beefs, protected him although there were all these citizens complaints, could you ( as the exempt) be pulled in on some civil rights violation? held accountable.

If so, maybe the exempts would be more careful in whom they sponsor or promote.

Who signed off on all of the CR#'s without penalty? Who signed off on hundreds of court deviations without penalty?

All of the coppers that you secretly screwed over in the past by trying to involve them in your bul&%#sh%^t hope that Florence Colorado is really nice to you...you always wanted a mountain view. I see a few postings on this site from other imbeciles that bought into your "great copper" front. You have hid behind the guise of being a "great copper" by bringing in some large seizures. Every arrest and or seizure you made was overshadowed by the fact that you were.. and always will be.. a thief. Although the idiots that followed you are paying the price..they have screwed you like your screwed everyone else. You actively recruited new guys into your cesspool and made them call you "chief." Well "chief"..I am glad that I never bought into your bull$%it and just want to say thanks for helping bomb this Department back 20 years. We all got tired of hearing you shoot your mouth off about how much you scored the night before. Your time has come..we hoped it would.. and the good guys won't forger how such a "great cop" was so willing to stick it right in anothers cop's back whenever you had the chance. I hope your filthy star is never re-issued and will forever be hung upside down in the Academy as a reminder to all of the recruits of what corruption will bring. Rot in peace.

It was actually very satisfying especially when I asked what they would do in a situation like that-they had no answer. They told me that Mike Mette would have to file for commutation with the Governor himself. I asked if the Governor has tried to help Mette as I am sure he has with other criminals. I say criminals because that is how Officer Mette is being treated. Too bad Mette is not black.

Way off this topic but here is a quote from interviews just released Former President Ford on Dan Rostenkowski's pardon by former Prez Clinton

"
Said Ford: "Danny's problem was that he played precisely under the rules of the city of Chicago. Now, those aren't the same rules that that any other place in the world lives by, but in Chicago, they were totally legal, and Danny got a screwing, and I was pleased that Clinton granted it."

To 10/30/2007 01:01:00 AM,

You're a fucking imbecile if you think any FBI agent derives any glee from locking up policemen. I know of two who almost puked when they were told by an agent-in-charge to grab Frank Gill's wife from her lunch at the bank where she worked for an interview regarding the lieutenants financial records. A scandal hat goes back the Thanasaurus crew in 015 over thirty years ago. That was fruit Jim Thompsons doing, not their's. Don't begrudge the FBI agents. True, those accountants, lawyers, and school teachers with guns lost their balls with Airhart. A few of ours have failed in that respect as well. But their no different from us, for better, or worse.

The press is having a field day with this story. On Sunday night we will be hosting the 3rd Annual True Blue Awards ceremony where we honor CPD and Suburban Police Heroes who went above and beyond the call in the name of my son, fallen officer Michael P. Gordon, CPD. What is really heartbreaking is the press loves to cover police corruption, etc. They have been invited to past programs, but never show up to cover the story. (Anyone interested, go to FOP site, Upcoming Events Section for info). To all the CPD Officers, thankyou for your support and "Be Careful Out There."

Why do you believe that this person is a merit supervisor? Do you really believe that every merit position filled was due to an ass sucker? I've been on the department for over 16 years and I have seen some good hard working officers get promoted. Not because they sucked ass but because of the work they did to get them recognized.

He is sticking up for the Police now because he is worried that this is coming back to him. That’s why Devine is retiring because he embarrassed Daly by breaking this case when Daly was out of town and started a Shit slide so Richie told him don’t even think about running again .F&%#K every body who had these guys tried and convicted a year ago when they were first indicted, you showed your brotherhood then by turning your backs on all these guys so they started making deals so what I would give up every thing to show the same loyalty that they was shown.

Here is where the supervisors might have a problem....if you know an officer has behavioral issues or numerous cr#'s for his or her behavior and you, as the supervisor, allow this person to continue working the street or area where all the issues of behavior occurred...are you as the supervisor culpable? I believe there is case history of supervisors being held accountable for very similar situations.

***********************************

NO bosses will go on down this criminally. I know we would LOVE to see some off these assholes go down BUT IT IS NOT GOING TO HAPPEN. The Chicago Sun-Times has turned into a bullshit tabloid paper like the National Enquirer. This sould NOT be a front page story. We all know that Finnigan would sell his own mother to get out of the potential life in prison stretch he is looking at. I believe anyone looking at life in the joint would do the same thing.

As for the above comment; “I believe there is case history of supervisors being held accountable for very similar situations.” You are saying that supervisors on an ADMINISTRATIVE level have been punished and given time. CORRECT. However on this matter after several bosses may get time, after years of appeals and arbitration, they will wind up with NOTHING other than maybe 1 or 2 day suspensions. Hopefully jackasses like TOBIAS will have there careers shot to pieces and he’ll wind up in 007 on midnights as a lieutenant.

IN THE END, the taxpayers and union members will be the ones that get screwed. It will be our dollars that go to pay for the investigations and defense funds that will pay for all the mental masturbation that will be handed down by the department, states attorney’s office, IAD etc.

Please, may of you who post on this site act like Chicago is small town Mayberry. Why do many of you think the Fed’s are all that, or for that reason the FBI? How soon you forget how corrupt the FBI is. How they have sold information to the Russians or anyone who was willing to pay the price. They have been involved in plots for murder and have been shaken up several times due to their corruption. Why are so many calling for the FBI to investigate or take over the CPD or investigate members of the CPD? How many agents do you know or have ever met? They are more in awe with us (CPD) then we are with them. The FBI agents I know (retired) are always asking me questions regarding homicide scenes, gangs, shootings…. They DO NOT have the experience, knowledge, or expertise Chicago has. And may are out to just make a name for themselves at your expense.

We are perhaps the greatest police department in the world and you do not even realize it. Be proud to be CPD and stop all of the name calling, finger pointing, and tattling on each other, rather it is a co-worker or a boss. Don’t do anything illegal, and that will keep you safe and out of trouble. Some of you have become an embarrassment to the police department’s name, and those of you who have strayed or think you are above the law, as you see, it all catches up to you. Don’t embarrass yourself and bring shame to your family.

There may be no criminal charges to bring against any higher ups, BUT if it can be shown that Supervisors knew, should have known or ignored signs, patterns etc... then they can be hammered by the Dept. If and only if the Dept. wants to discipline Bosses, which is unlikely since they are clout whores anyways. The G can go after those in command of IAD SOS etc... if they can show that these bosses turned any eye to this corruption and were derelict in their duties to step in and take action. Also if they can prove a conspiracy by these exempts to in fact do nothing when all the signs were there that there was a big problem like various court deviations, CR#'s with the same allegations, etc....
Remember the paper trail is the court deviations, CR#s, and case reports, arrest reports. This will be key to proving a corrupt group of officers who were somehow protected from the rules and regulations of the CPD. Every Deviation is signed off on by a Supervisor and all the way up the chain.

Father Nangle is one of the most honorable people on this department. Just because he is not public in his works, does not mean that he does nothing. I know for a fact that he has given support to Mette. I know for a fact he has supported officers who are in prison and some even communicate with him. I know for a fact that he has supported officers in all kinds of trouble.

Father Nangle will help anyone. He just does not have to go public and brag about it. It is not his job to brag or write or publicize his acts. It is only his job to perform them. You ever hear the term quiet hero? Oh, I forgot, your ideaof a hero is a guy who writes a mover and five parkers a day.

What have you ever done? Have you helped one of your fellow POs in a jam? Have you gone to bat for anybody? When was the last time you wrote or visited a cop in prison? When was the last time you gave comfort to a PO in crisis? When was the last time you ever did anything worth while in your whole, cowardly, miserable life?

Oh, yeah, ass hat, lots of people have summer homes. What, the only thing you have is your basement on the NW side or Mount Peckerwood? Some people spend their money- what little or a lot- wisely on things they want. Others, probably guys like you, spend their money on stupid things- like gambling, booze, beer, and wife beater tee shirts.

The only thing you probably have ever done is sit all alone in your basement with a bottle of cheap liquor, in your underwear, playing with yourself and dreaming that you are a real hero. Then you come on here and slam an honorable man.

Oh, and before you bring up that phony magazine article, remember, there was never any forhtcomong proof about any malfeasance by Father Nangle. The TRIBUNE killed the rest of the story when the real truth came out- the story was a hatchet job that had no legs.

BY DOING THIS WE WILL SHOW THE PUBLIC THAT WE DONOT CONDONE THESE ACTIONS AND DO ADMIT OUR MISTAKES AND WILL FOREVER STRIVE TO OVERCOME OUR TARNISHED IMAGE.

Finnegan is an asshole. His crew are assholes.

He makes Medzinowski (sp) look like a choir boy.

Those of you who defend him blindly are either very naive or are assholes also.

The smug look he gave the cameras outside court says it all.

I met him once when he brought an arrest into my district, he treated regular district officers like he was the king of police and we were just a step above his arrestee.

I hope he spends his time in Marion IL in 23.5 hour lockdown.

I can sleep well at night knowing I did my job right, no shortcuts, no testilying, no putting cases on people, just doing it right. Unlike Jerome.

First, the FEDS would have never taken this case if it wasn't all tied up with a bow...period. Second, Finnigan's attny probably let the leak out, not the FEDS. Third, yes, maybe no Lt. or Cmdr. has ever gone down on something like this, but we are living in a new generation where this can and probably will happen. Our police dept. is being governed by the liberals, media, revs and lawyers, not the police. There will be more going down on this and not just po's.

It was the administration's responsibility to put a stop to Finnigan's behavior and they didn't....how many court deviations and cr#'s can one man have without causing some concern? The President of the US, congressman,and even Daley could probably get away with "I didn't know it was happening". But how could managers who work in the same building not know? How many people in their command? We aren't talking in the thousands here, maybe a few hundred.

Look at George Ryan, corrupt politician extrodinaire, he claimed ignorance, but the public didn't buy it. Ignorance and the "duh I didn't know" answer isn't going to fly anymore. The FEDS however, have to come up with some more solid proof besides Finnigan's word. If you dig enough, I bet there is a lot out there, too.

***This isn't being handled by the Dept. It's being handled by the Feds, so there will be no opportunity to protect anyone***

My Friend, I'm showing my age when I tell you that the slum times has been substandard since murdock of Australia took the paper over in the early early 80's. Prior to that a story like this would not have recieved any mention within the first 8 pages. The trib is only slightly better, with emphasis on slightly.

Meanwhile the ass wipe Finnegan gets all this publicity on here based on rumor while what appears to be a good guy is going to jail for defending himself. You new breed are all wimps and who wait for somelse to step up and take the lead, well, look in the mirror officers, if you ever need help who will take the lead to help you. Bitch bitch bitch no action!!! You should be embarrased and ashamed that all this talk of protests and bus trips never came together because no one stepped up. You are pathetic excuses for a brotherhood of blue and you should be embarrased that the public reads on hear what gutless wimps you are as an alleged brotherhood of blue, geez, you fight and argue on here about districts, meet at Humberto's and I'll kick your ass, well asskicker have a bus at Humberto's and go to Iowa, ACT, Yeah, I know what I am, save the energy and venom and get rid of the Finnegans in your midst and help the good guys.

For everybody that thinks I was wrong about the conspiracy to commit murder charges being dropped, if you know anything about the job whats going on now seems like a pretty good prelude to that happening. Jerry Finnigan according to the paper is making a deal. Now, what do you think he might be dealing for? Whats the major charge? What would get him the most time? Did you really think it was going to happen overnight? I only admit that I didn't know it was going to happen because of a deal. I still believe it is going to happen. I said I would apologize if it didn't happen and I will. I didn't stick up for herrera for turning and wearing a wire. I also will not stick up for Finnigan for making a deal. There is a difference though. There is a line of coppers waiting to talk about what Finnigan did. Even though they did the same thing.
To the guy that keeps sniping at me on here, and I think I know who you are, you squad car sleeping rookie fuck. I'm retired and not clouted up. Have no say so on the job and am no threat to you so, there is no reason you can't put your name on here and man up if you think I'm all that! I stand by what I said, all this tattle tale bullshit will bury you all.
This was and still is an honorable job and I'm thankful for every one of you that do it. How many times have you brought somebody into the station and by the time he gets charged its only because he tells on himself? Some of us never learn. This scandal bullshit bothers me as much as it does you guys that are still out there facing it every day. Trust me this mess will pass and just be a bad memory.
I still stand by what I said about that charge. Its my heat if it doesn't happen and not scc's, he had the courtesy to print what I said and believe to be true. If you see fit to use this as a personal vendetta against me then what can I say. Have at it, but don't hide behind your computer mouse. I'm not afraid of you and there's no reason to be afraid of me.

Why is Father Nangle being bashed? Who cares how much he makes. You don't know what he does. He was there for me and my team after 9-11 and I was the only Catholic. He said what we needed to hear. I do not know how it affected each of you personally, but it had to in some small way. If you cannot admit fear for yourself, how about concern for your family. He does what he is supose to do. He supports us. I have never heard him speak ill of anyone. To those of you that doubt everything. You must find something to believe in. If not the department, then your partner, or spouse or child. I think many of us have become a group of our own and are banding together. But we only talk negative and I think it is effecting the morale. We sit at our computers (alone)and seethel.
We need more people like Father Nangle. There aren't many people on the department that I admire. We are killing our selves and the ranks with with this doomsday talk.

J. Fin-again and the other low liefs that sold their integrity and morals for the life of a low life street thug are going to tell all to the Fed. Right- How could anyone believe anything they are saying. They denied everything and 0ow they know everything? Right. If they do not have the millions of dollars of lawyer hours like George Ryan ,Bye Bye!!

Daly says,"Gov is a very, very, smart man" Like he would know. Had no idea his own patronage chief was selling jobs and the water dept. guy was collecting fees to say nothing of the trucking people. That is the opinion I want.

SCC
I wrote an experience that happened to me yesterday at a gas station by my house. My post was written between 1130pm - 1230 am. I really am disappointed that it was not published. It had total relevance and allot of other officers could relate. After reading some of these other thoughtless posts that are getting past your editing crew im really upset because I was sharing a real experience. I have been a devoted reader of your post and enjoy what you have created. I'm hoping that it was a mistake and you will still post it. Thank you.

Daley did not want them to pillage and plunder- steal. He did not want them committing home invasions.

No, they just went out and took advantage of th fact that there was no one looking over their shoulder and that the peolple they robbed would not beef; until the copper they hit did.

Remember that. They home invaded one of our own.

I am amazed that there are people who can bag on anyone. Father Nangle is a class act. I remember several years ago when I made the papers he called that morning just to touch base and let me know there were people pulling for me. I was/am just an anonymous copper who was impressed that he would call me.

6:15pm. Your right the bosses did tell us to go out there and get those guns and drugs. We would get a foot up our ass, and constantly reminded that we were the mother fucking SOG or SOS,and that we were the best. The department knew we were the ones to handle the shit, and so did the city. Stop bitching about how the Lt. said we needed to get a few guns today, because you know the time that you had in the unit was the best you will ever have on the job. You were told on your interview what was now expected of you. If you, or someone on the watch got into some shit, the troops would come from where ever they where working, kick some ass, and bail everyone out. We were the best, and it felt good to have the confidence that some of the departments best coppers and bosses were at our side. I had some of the best lauphs, and memories that I will ever have on the job because of the characters that were up on that notorious 3rd floor. That is something that no one will ever be able to take away from us. Let's all be safe, and remember the times we had. -153

What has happened to the CPD??? When I joined years ago it was because I wanted to be the POLICE. I worked hard, made tons arrests, lost a lot of friends and had unbelievebale experiences both good and bad. Back in the day we used to say that "It was Them against Us"; now it seems to be "Us against Us."

Manpower shortages, b.s. promotion lists, inadequate pay & old equipment; it sounds like the CPD I knew and loved. All those things made the job worth doing and it seemed like the worse District you worked in the more you had to be proud of.

The issues aren't new just the people. If you're doing this job for anything other then "to do the job" you're cheating yourself. If you're not happy go out and get the job that will make you happy, if you want more money get a job that pays more, if you hate the organization then try to help change it.

When I took this job I didn't even know how much it payed? I loved the job and will always have good memories of the CPD. Don't be bitter, be the Police; it's more then just wearing a Star and carrying a pistol.

Regarding Father Nagle: As a Catholic I spend a lot time questioning my religion and can say I don't look at Priests now like I did as a kid. However, I will never look ill upon Fr. Nagle. He was there for me twice; once after I shot a person in 015 (when you went back to work the next day) and once when I was fighting with a Gangbanger near the 1000 S. Cicero. Fr. Nagle actually helped me cuff the Offender.

In the service we used to say that "there are no athiests in a foxhole." In the CPD there is no such thing as a Non-Catholic when a PO needs Fr. Nagle's help.

Good thoughts to all, Be the POLICE!

Sorry son, thinking hollywood. The rule of the street is the same for everyone: If you got one, you've got them all. From the hardest to the softest. No one is going to prison alone while their boys stay free.
