Other Fish to Fry

Now we know why Fitzgerald has been ignoring the City lately:
  • Unnecessary deaths and amputation, grossly inadequate medical care, systematic prisoner beatings.

    These are just some of the findings from a 17-month probe of the Cook County Jail by the U.S. attorney’s office.

Gee, sounds almost exactly like what's happening in Iowa right now.

We certainly hope that Fitzgerald isn't ignoring the constant stream of crooked contracting, political shenanigans and assorted wrongdoing in the City Hall building just because a certain fed ... a certain J-Fed ... is now "in control" over at the CPD. Professional courtesy in the face of wholesale political corruption is no favor to the taxpayers of Chicago. Besides, weakening the Toddler merely strengthens the Machine.

Pass the tartar sauce!

Give Fitzgerald a fish, and he eats for a day. Let him grill these know-it-all politicians, and he can eat for a lifetime.

It is time to either fish or cut bait.

GEEZ, with crime/murder/anarchy
at a perceived all time high in this city/cty, why would you even have a probe of the jail(s),let alone announce your findings?
Have that AZ guy, Sheriff J. Arpaio
take a leave of absense and bring him here for year.
Oh, wait a minute, he'd clean things up,the jail would show a profit;people would NOT commit crimes so to avoid his jail.
Cant have that, now can we?

Some should have their heads amputated! Who cares, so a jagoff coppers son (some famous rapj "artist") got slapped around after telling an Officer that he was he, this Martin asshole, was only there for a visit and not convicted, yet of att. murder and vehicle hi-jacking. Oh, daddy is a ret. policeman, SO WHAT!

Fuck the funkin fucker.

It would help cpd morale is a big way and help the hard working citizens also! maybe when daley is gone we could stop violating federal alws and go after all the illegals who steal our resources like haelth care,housing,schools and save tax payers a bundle!

Hey U.S. Attorney, hope your guys are not ignoring the prison/jail conditions in Iowa also. Mike Mette was almost killed by incompetence there.

Jimmy Chongo -

He DID walk away. Multiple times according to the judge. We guess you think self defense isn't a right, it's a gift from the government. You're a moron and an asshat.

Welcome to the world of not seeing your name in print. Population: 2. Say hi to coldtype for us.

Apologies to the readers who aren't seeing the other side of this argument, but we aren't giving this asshat, assclown, assmunch a forum

No Asshat, we just don't post out-and-out demonstrably false statements and your lies about Mette are exactly that. He did retreat - the decision said so. You saying he didn't doesn't make it so.

As for the rest of your childish response, Abbate should have been fired years ago (as we've stated and many here have agreed) and will be fired this time; Cozzi was railroaded after serving his Court mandated sentence and his Police Board sentence; we have yet to see an SOS conviction and if/when we do, we'll cover that and wash our hands of the whole sorry mess.

We've never demanded privileges or ever typed, thought or expressed the idea we were better than anyone else. We're trusted by society to make hard decisions and enforce laws passed by the elected representatives. If we were political hacks we wouldn't be stuck in patrol.

And guess what else? Fitz ain't coming for us.

Put your name to something contrary to the establishment in the CPD and you will be destroyed. The CPD is by far the most vindictive organization on Earth if you express truth. One can see why management wears the rose colored glasses and drink the kool aid.

Heaven Forbid you take a "REAL" look around.

Fat Phil found out the hard way.

If Fitz were really concerned about crime he'd spend a little more time looking OUTSIDE the jail. Those inside have been convicted already and quite frankly don't deserve to get pissed on if they're on fire. I remember, way back, a long time ago, in school talking about the birth of civilization and there being something called a civil contract. These folks broke the contract, therefore they give up their civil rights. There is no such thing as "rehabilitation". Espically when the offenders have it better on the inside than the outside. They get treated better than the guys in boot camp! I say let the beatings continue!

These asshole offenders (each and every one of them) violated another citizens constitutional rights to land themselves behind bars.

So why is this even an issue?

Not to piss on your parade, but, this is a county jail, not a state prison.

Those in county jail are awaiting trial, thus, not yet convicted and sentenced.

Granted, to remain in custody pending trial, one must either have not been able to post bond, said bond being, presumably, high, or denied bond; both bond conditions being, also presumably, the result of being charged with serious criminal acts.

Just FYI.

Interesting how so many arrestees won't take the time to get to a hospital to get their various infections/old wounds looked at & treated until AFTER they've been pinched, and held on felony charges. If they didn't give a damn themselves, why should the County? And blaming the County jail on the death of a woman who was HIV positive who developed an infection? She already had a fatal disease. Hopefully, that report put out by Fitzgerald and Co. is disseminated in the streets, and will serve as another incentive for the up and coming detainees of the merits of living a crime free existence.

Fitzgerald is just another political hack lawyer who got his job as a political favor from someone.
Someone he still owes! That's how the system works.

Don't change a thing!!!! The Jail is on our side. These assholes are affraid of "county". If things get nicer in there, the assholes won't mind committing the crime if it lands them in the Cook County Hilton. (sorry Hilton, but you do have nice places). They should have the same treatment like they do in China.

Thanks to the city mistreating Chicago's FINEst, we have De-police now and finally the jail is not concerned with overcrowding at this time. Ninety something percent (un-scientific guesstimation) of the scum in jail has an extensive rap sheet. We call "regulars" who live their lives on installments (time inside and time outside)without care or concern. They have 6 or 7 kids each from different partners and have never worked a day in their lives. On the outside they would never see a doctor or even care about where they lay their head at night. In Jail the scum demands rights to a doctor, hot meals etc. Thank You my blue brothers for the slow down on felony arrests. Weekend Bond court all time high on misdemeanors and low on the felony call. Whenever you start getting the money and respect you deserve, I will then be prepared for heavy times in the county.
Be safe out there no matter what!
