Response

We don't know about these readers:
  • SCC,
Yes?
  • First you falsely report that Det. "R" hung up on the Trib reporter - - - - NOT TRUE. The detective invited the reporter in and answered questions.
Gee, you caught us. We missed this month's FOP meeting. Boo hoo. If you read the post, at no time do we say we witnessed the exchange at the microphone. We were contacted via e-mail. Do we get misled by people? Sure. Do we get fed BS every so often? Yep. Do we have the resources to check out everything? Nope. We aren't the media. We are working coppers with families and side jobs and bills and all sorts of responsibilities. And we happen to have a blog read by 5,000 people a day. Most of the stuff on here is "sarcasm and silliness." More of it is rumor. If you're looking for facts and such, it's here sometimes, but you've got to wade through the crap to get there.
  • Next you report the completely nonsensical crap titled "Blockbuster SOS news?" The entire post is also NOT TRUE. The Fed is no sooner going to drop the charges as JR is going to eat a dozen apples and crap a fruit salad.
We merely reported what retired Sergeant Dave Snethen related to us and posted in the comments section. Dave is a guy we respect. Dave has also related a bunch more info that we aren't posting at the moment. Dave has also said if the info turns out to be false or mistaken, he'll come on here and apologize. We REALLY respect that, too.
  • So.........the Feds don't drop any charges (SURPRISE!)and now you say: "One has to wonder if this isn't some sort of ploy by involved parties to ensure it's impossible to get a fair trial in Cook County."
Just because the feds missed our arbitrary deadline of Friday after the close of business doesn't mean it won't happen. Sometimes these things don't surface for a few days or weeks.
  • Please, SCC stop with the fairy tails and nonsense. You know better.
First up, they aren't our fairy tales. We don't know better than anyone else what tomorrow holds. We're just trying to keep everyone abreast and interested in stuff.
  • You are hurting the police.
We categorically deny that. Media might be hurting the police with biased coverage. Police might be hurting police with getting caught doing stupid things. But we still think we're doing more good than not. You think Pat and John's blog is doing us any good?
  • Your blog is very popular and does a nice job of revealing City/Department malfeasance on occasion. But lately, it's really making the police look bad.
Popular? Getting there. But making people look bad? Please. We're helping bring media BS to light and warning people what's out there. But thanks for visiting.

Unless there is a press conference, the charges are still active. The Feds may have just used the so called entrapment as a pretext tool to see how far Finnegan would go to try to clear himself or to see how far he would go to dig himself a deeper grave. They may have even purposely done this to get him to plead guilty.

Overall, Finnegan & Co. are going to probably do some time.

As to you SCC- you are right. This is a blog- not the Medill School of Journalism. You are doing a great job. Most of what is written here is opinion- not fact. Just like all those rumors and stries out of 35th.

Though I have tons of respect for the Second Deputy, I think his info is wrong. I can't imagine the Feds bringing a case and then dropping it, no matter what the reason.

More likely, they would put up a weak response to a defense motion, let the judge throw it out and cry "Poor Me".

Do you honestly believe the "G" would make a colossal mistake like entrapment involving the alleged dirtiest cop ever?? If anything, they would make sure the case is air tight so as to not be embarrassed!! Nice try Sarge, that couldn't be farther from the truth!!

First,

your blog is great. I devour it daily. Think of Phil Cline at Old Country Buffet and you will get a teeny idea how much I like this blog. The whole Tunney thing was priceless. Although I do sort of feel bad for Commander "Yami".

Second,

the media is biased sometimes. More often they are just lazy. Don't blame them for reporting on the bar fights and SOS scandals. Blame the idiots who got into those situations.

The media also reports good stuff on the department. Check out Mark Brown's Sun Times column today. He gives credit to good police work in nailing a psychotic murderer. Calling that guy psychotic is an insult to psychos. Hanibal Lecter could have learned from that guy.

Just because you managed to get hired and graduate from a police academy doesn't mean you are no longer responsible for your stupid actions. You think you can go into a bar, cry into your beer about losing a loved one, then beat the hell outta some civilians and not get nailed.......to hell with you. Don't let the door hit you on the ass on your way outta the department or on the way into a short stint at County.

You think you can act like a real life version of "The Shield" and not get nailed.......prepare to get in touch with your feminine side.

This whole city, county and state needs an enema and the police department is not "exempt".....pardon the pun.

Personally, I would like to see the enema start on the fifth floor of city hall. Then move over to the County side of the building. After that it can head to Springfield and finish off at 35th Street. There will be rivers of shit flowing down the curbs toward their final destination at a water treatment plant.

So endeth the lesson.

I heard that you have no idea what you are talking about and never have. I also heard that you are a coward and a yellow bellied sneak. But I won't spread these rumors about you, because I do not know you.

Just like you probably do not know Dave Snethen. I do. Why don't you meet him and tell him to his face what you realllllllly think. If you have the balls.

What have you got to hide. Nobody sign up for that nonsense. Its a way to identify you. Nothing like the FOP to back stab its membership. You go Mark Donawho. How do you look yourself in the mirror.

I agree with your post. I can't see the Feds dropping charges, but I can see a weak response to a defense motion.

Sorry I spelled kum by ya wrong, but that doesn't change the fact that Dave got on a plane with nothing more than a hammer and a box full of nails. The first hut he built was the only one that survived a horrible typhoon that saved the entire village.

You know, nobody has a huge budget for verifying rumors. Not SCC, and not the newspapers. (TV isn't real news, by the way. People just shouldn't watch that crap.)

If you don't want to be held to the standard you're trying to hold the other media to, then you need to be a LOT more upfront when you report rumors. The fact that it's rumor should be huge, and then the little itty bitty rumor itself should be way down below. Maybe your headline should say "another bit of gossip" instead of healdining the accusation.

The way you do it now, your critics are right.

So when you wrote

You meant

I can't imagine how anyone understood it differently!

So the fact that we put a question mark at the end of the title (Blockbuster News?) and then we noted that if it had been an anonymous comment, we wouldn't have even published a response, but since we trust Dave Snethen, we gave it some play, means that we're misleading you?

Here's a little clue - try reading the entire post and not just the headline. Then get someone to explain the bigger words to you.

We don't expect to be held to the same standard as the main stream media - we don't think we could stoop that low. But we'd like to think that coppers who have been reading this for a while know what we're about, know what Rumor Central was, and understand that no one likes a crazy story more than we do.

"OK HERE IS A CLEAR EXAMPLE OF AN INFILTRATOR PIECE OF SHIT WHO IS PROBABLY NOT THE POLICE. LEAVE THIS BLOG YOU OPRAH/MARY MITCHELL WORSHIPER."

Am I an infiltrator or am "probably" not the police? Make a decision asshole.

As for Oprah or Mary Mitchell I have little use for them or for you. The whole attitude that fellow cops can do no wrong is bullshit and is one of the big problems in the CPD. Let me guess you are either one of the guys in any of the recent embarrassing or criminal incidents involving CPD members or know/related to one of them. "OH, HE IS GETTING SCREWED. HE IS A GREAT GUY."

I suppose that because I used somewhat understandable sentences and grammar and didn't type in all capitals makes me a "infiltrator" and civilian. I guess I "SHOLD HAV STOPED MY EDUCAION AT 6H GRADE LIKE YOU".

Do two things for me and for humanity. First, retire if possible or resign. Second, and I will spell this out for you so you understand, V A S E C T O M Y.

Come back for more fun if you want.
