Sun Times Hit Piece?

Some of the comments have been saying that the Department made the front page of the Sunday Sun Times again. Unfortunately, we don't have access to an early paper and we can't seem to find it online yet. Something about police shooting people? What are we getting slimed for this time?

And speaking of sliming, batten down the hatches - rumors are starting up again here and at work about SOS indictments coming around the holidays. Typical fed pressure tactic. Seems to bear fruit quite a bit.

And other rumors of additional aldercreature indictments are making the rounds. We can only hope.

UPDATE: Here's the nonsense article

As you can see, the City (a) settles way too often, (b) gives money to gang bangers way too often, and (c) is being pressured to fire coppers in a way never before seen.

I saw the paper at Walgreens & it made me upset. Think it was about a person named antoine thomas (?) and showed a picture of his body @ the bottom of stairs. the times has stopped reporting news and has become a cop hater paper. needless to say, i will no longer buy it, and instead bought the trib to read.

Yep, front page..
I hate that my other half buys the Sunday paper on Saturday because it doesn't have any scores in it, but I did read the slap job.

Nothing major. Just that the city has paid $ for lawsuits and the police officers have not been suspended or fired even after the police board or OPS has found they lied. Mostly true. Clout rules Chicago. The rest of the article is BS. Just because the City settles does not mean that the P.O.'s did anything wrong. Typical media/reverend spin. Bad Po-Po shot poor innocent graduate students with no regard for safety. Just another fluff piece. If they could have shown the Abbatte video they would have....

As I have slapped a boycott on the SCUM-TIMES and will not purchase it. I did see the front page at a suburban gas station. It asked the question how much does it cost for the police to shoot somebody. $27 million.

Being that the we only shoot people who are the nothing short of the finest of citizens destined to be lawyers, doctors and alderman.

Why does it cost so much? cause the city settles with everyone who brings suit against it. What about standing up and fighting the case.

Damn'd their memory- Pookie was a dope dealing gang-banging high school drop-out who was caught by the police selling dope, and decided to run and then take a shot at a sworn law enforcement officer.

Hmmm...The city should a bill to the family for the cost of the ammunition. Seems to me that the officers should be awarded the Medal of freedom for ridding the citizens of this city of URBAN TERRORISTS.

WE the Police are not the enemy. Eventually after all of this vilification(sp) the citizens of this city are going to get the police force they are protesting to get. Havent seen any protests happening in the Caucasian or Hispanic areas of the city. WHY is that? Doesnt Carlos O'Malley Wu deal drugs or carry a weapon?

Coppers its time to enforce the traffic laws against ALL media vehicles. Stop taking the free papers and and read whats being reported and fabricated to sway the public opinion.

Now stepping off of soap box

As usual, the Scum Times wants to make the Offenders in Police shootings sound like "Victims" in their piece!

Hey Scum Times, the offenders are the ones who escalated the incidents into Police shootings! Police Officers don't go around shooting people at random and for no reason, that is the way they make it sound!

My attitude towards the Scum Times is they can fuck off in the Anti-Police Bias rhetoric!

Hey Bozo, why give money to the Scum Times!

You can get updated and accurate scores off of ESPN.com without the biased, anti-police rhetoric and NOT spend good money on a bad paper!

Obviously, you know how to use a computer because you've posted on this blog!

Save your $1.50 and some trees, and go to the internet for your Sports scores and point spread odds and have your wife get her info and coupons on-line like the rest of the smart people on the internet and tell your other half the Scum Times is prohibited in your house!

I haven't bought the Scum Times in years thus, I don't have anymore black ink stains on my hands from reading their dirty paper and their circulation is going down and hopefully out of business soon!

This is their only option left to sell the meager papers is to drum anti-police news!

The article quotes Thomas Smith; a retired FBI agent, former Chief Investigator for OPS and close friend of Hillard.

Smith claims that the Detective Division and the ADS' did not always follow his directions after shootings and this led to cover-ups.

He does not explain the shooting that he was involved in when he was a range instructor for the FBI at Great Lakes. He shot another agent with a firearm that he claimed was loaded with dummy rounds.

He no more should of been investigating us than the man-in-the-moon!

The FBI prevents local law enforcement from interviewing their employees for 24 hours when they are involved in a shooting incident. Is this so they can get their stories straight?

I am honestly getting tired of nonsense like this crap written above. A wise man once broke it down for us 20% of this department is made up of hard charging, hard working, non stop police officers .
60% of this department is made up of working police officers who do what they're supposed to do, answer calls, write the tickets, make the arrests, and so on and all with a smile. Now the other 20%are the dog asses like the idiot above talking about IM done and you should be too. They are the ones that give working coppers a bad name. We should not make the elite dog ass 20% group any bigger. Instead hold your head up high, because no matter what, we are Chicagos Finest. We can handle whatever bullshit they spew at us. Take pride and just smile because we working coppers have nothing to be ashamed of. We know the truth.

We have government officials who lie their way into office with promises that the middle, working, class will be heard and a media who follows the exact same agenda. why is this? does my money not count? I don't read the two majors or watch television news for that matter, because I don't count to them...so neither will my money.don't read their garbage online either the more hits they get,the more they get paid.

On March 7, 1969, 5th Dist. Off. Terry KNOX was shot outside Hirsch High School, 7746 S. Drexel Ave. his wounds leaving him paralyzed.

The shooter was one Joseph PANNELL, a member of the Black Panther Party. He fled to Canada shortly thereafter.

In 2004, PANNELL was located living quietly in Canada as a librarian under an assumed name. He was arrested in Mississauga, a Toronto suburb, by the RCMP.

Now, after more than 38 years on the lam, the Ontario Court of Appeals has ordered PANNELL's extradition to the United States. PANNELL, now age 58, faces charges for the attempted murder of Terry KNOX.

Hopefully, this will bring closure for Terry who has endured paralysis all these years because of this filthy muthafucker.

Yes, the city does settle most lawsuits and I agree a lot of those settlements are to make the plaintiff go away. But those are usually the settlements under $50,000... most of these shootings involved settlements on average of $1 million plus.

Good question about the kid not suing the driver -- probably because the driver does not have deep pockets like the city.

I can't put myself in the shoes of the officers. Don't think I would ever know what it's like to be out there. That said, in the Bell shooting, don't really understand firing at a car that is 180 feet past you with a bunch of people hanging on. Adrenaline? Rage? What might have been a defensible shooting turned into a bad one — at least from the city's perspective, which paid out a total of $4.1 million in that one.



Thanks for your response.

Eddie Burke and others...own law firms. The city settles and they all get a piece. Helen fucking Keller even know this. Why nothing is exposed or done about it, is beyond me. It's not only criminal, it's morally wrong. How these jerk-offs sleep at night, I'll never know.

It is all about the money. Plus, they now use something called fault- who was more or less at fault to cause the death. In one of the suits that went to jury, they found that the city was partially at fault and the more was partially at fault. We still paid.

The Deptartment of Law will not keep other lawyers from making a living. They love giving big bones to their legal bretheren.

We need legal reform and protection. Time to write your state reps and state sens. Get a bill passed to protect cities and departments from these suits.

"Mistakes cost city, not cops
$27 MIL. FOR POLICE SHOOTINGS | Few officers face firing or serious discipline"

For the ignorant media types....this is because if "policing the city" starts costing the police officers ...you are not going to have any police officers.....no one will do anything to put themslves in a trick bag for a ungrateful public....fucking morons...........19P that is all

I am no economics wizard, but if you take free papers or if someone puts 50 cents in the box and takes 50 papers...I think it hurts the company, just my opinion..it makes great fire starter in my fireplace!
