"Reverends" Going Down?

Tribune article this Sunday morning:
  • The state is squandering taxpayer money on dubious after-school grants, including many that rewarded one lawmaker's political supporters, a Tribune investigation found.
  • Powerful Senate Democrats quietly gave out the money to handpicked nonprofits, schools, businesses and churches. The lawmakers funneled the money through the Illinois State Board of Education, which rubber-stamped the choices.

    But a Tribune investigation found that nearly half of the 48 groups that got money this past school year were running dubious programs, or declined to show how they spent the money. Only 11 of the grants went to established programs with a history of tutoring or mentoring school-age children.
Any federal charges forthcoming? This is a Tribune investigation and it hammers Emil Jones' people. We'd love to see the crumbling of the Machine begin with the Illinois branch. Nothing wrong with hoping.

Here's a question the Tribune fails to ask:
  • What did Illinois state senator Barack Obama know about these crooked giveaways and when did he know it? And why does a police blog have to do the heavy thinking for investigative journalists? Again?

Well, there goes the investigation.

If the media thinks there's even a REMOTE possibility of the Messiah being tarnished, it will be put on the back burner.

Dear SCC, yeah why should you have to through out the hard questions and not so called journalists?..because there are few if any investigative reproters left...there's no money in print or electronic media to allow them to cover an in depth story...because there's no profit in it..it's all about the bottom line. After Trib let go 70 heads you think you're gonna raise your hand at the next meeting and tell the editor you've got a great idea for an in-depth about that O'bama connection. If they had any stones the journalists would strike over this issue and send a big labor whopping "F...U..." to the moguls running the show. Does not the media pride itslef on being the "Fourth Estate?" This is why the machine isn't even worried..not Daley ..not Stroger..not Blago..none of them. Just be sure to through a cop, fireman, or steets and san victim under the bus every now and then, for appearances sake. Makes me hope it all falls in on them. So is the US Attorney done messin' with his "pooky in the pokey" report enough to get back on track???? Cause they're the only cavalry coming to save the day and Fort Fitzgerald seems so far away....

Alert! No one was shot, stabbed or sexually assualted at the Pitchfork Fest-indie rock concert-at Union Park in 013. Only one bona fide strong arm robbery and a attempted bicycle theft occured on Saturday. Promoters stated twenty-thousand tickets and/or three day passes were sold at costs of up to fifty dollars! Oh, and the crowd consisted of 100% white people who, unlike our social equals at the Taste of Chicago, didn't mutherfuck the police! Neither evolution nor billions of squandered tax dollars will ever change you know who. BTW, we did have our fourth homicide at a Mexican dope bar at 826 N. Western @ 2249 hrs. same night! And as always-Save yourself-Vote McCain.

Ever run criminal histories on the REVrunds? Why do most have criminal histories? Why are they always so anti-police? Could there be a connection here?

Gee, let me see. They don't have anything productive to contribute, so they start up a church, tax free benefits, and now can "organize" in the community. Who are they dealing with? When the most vocal critics start posturing, why don't journalists look into their backgrounds? What's their angle?

Oh, I forgot. You have a rule against that. You can't tell the truth if it's not politically correct.

okay i'm confused,are you so biased that any corruption in state government you have to mention obama.from what I understand Sen Hendon peddled his influence using taxpayers money (again)to help his friends. I'm so sick and tired of these damn politians giving taxpayers(my)money away for bullsh*t. with the economy and taxes they still have the nerve to just f*ck up money by giving it away while children who could benefit from these programs suffer, oh and by the way with all teh money being earned by the state lottery system why are the schools still broke,for those of us that remember the lottery was suppose to help the school system and while we are at it why do they feel the need to pay millions to place ads for the lottery who does'nt know it exist thats money that could go to the schools thereby lowering taxes but then that would mean that politions would have less money to f*ck over

Holy who's watching the hen house? Batman!!!

Uh-huh! Rat reverends caught stealing taxpayers dollars as a payoff for supporting the Democratic Political Machine.

Da mayor gives these rat folks (reverends)or better know as "false zealots" access and influence within our city government by rewarding them jobs, promotions and other resources in exchange for their support and their constituent's votes. A lot of relatives, friends and neighbors benefit big time from this relationship in exchange for votes. If you not in this click well your out of the click looking for work elsewhere.

As for the "political" police dept, here's another question for ya folks! Why didn't J-Fed place a retired federal lawman into the position of First Deputy Superintendent or Deputy Superintendent of the Bureau of Patrol?

A good reason being is these positions are held by key decision makers who determine the assignment and impact of the merit promotional process of all personnel assigned to the dept.

The First Deputy Superintendent's position is very political and designed by da mayor to be so. Ever wonder about that phone call remark so often heard? Yes many calls come in from many directions but they all seem to end up going through the First Deputy's Office. Sometimes a face to face with an alderman or political hack is necessary, due to federal eavesdropping.

Have you noticed a trend of First Deputies flying out of the 011th District lately due to the hiring of male white superintendents? Alderman Carother's ward just happens to be in 011. And Alderman Carothers often makes it a point that the Police and Fire Committee is in charge of the police dept. The same police dept that can't seem to get a handle on the "out of control" public violence and murder of children in Chicago streets.

Why didn't J-Fed assigned one of his FBI buddies to these positions? Maybe he was told not to dirty his hands by placing a retired FBI agent in a comprising position. After all do you think any political hack in this city would voluntarily meet to discuss job or promotional requests through a former FBI agent?

It is totally unacceptabe when public money is given to these groups and there is no accountability where the money was spent.

As a self-employed, person I have boxes upon boxes going back years that contain records where money was taken in and where it was spent.

Where our politicians dole out our money to people and require absolutley no accountability on the part of the recipient to maintain records to show where the money went is a big sign it's a payoff and theft. Neither party in this square dance wants us to follow the money!

It should be the rule if you receive taxmonies and you can't account for it being spent on the intended purpose, the budget of the department or agency that distributed that money should be reduced by the unaccounted for amount.

It's pretty fucking simple.

These bloodsuckers need to be held accountable. No matter how big an organization is if you have accountability this crap doesn't get a pass because there are consequences for those accountable.

They're not just idiots, they're bought and paid for whores as well.


When will in dawn on everyone that these kinds of subliminal images are no accident?

That they, like the ways in which words are used, are intentional as to their purposes?

The Kremlin had nothing on our own, 'free press' versions of propaganda techniques.

After all, our market system of commerce has bred and refined the 'art' of convincing bullshit to a finely honed science.

Compare the commercials and ads of even 10 years ago, let alone 20+, to those of today.

The word 'Slick' hardly does them justice.

When the public can't discern the truth from a lie, however gross or subtle the lie, where does that leave Freedom and Democracy?

Hey douchey, they aren't suck-ups, if there are signed complaints they have to lock em up. I'd say it's not a strech that area 2 an4 4 would have twice as mant arrests as area 3 so settle down.

I was at 51st street and saw the new cruisers. I'm getting rid of my small black and white 9 inch set. The new cruisers look like you can fit a 14 or even 18 inch TV with ease on the front seat. They also have dual lighter adapters. One for the TV and one for the portable DVD player. It seemed like just yesterday when all we had was one blue bubble light and no a/c.

The Sun Times reported in the previous week that State Senator Obama had similar problems with the passing out of money (earmarks) that Rickey Hendon had and had the same response. "I only authorize the money to be passed out, I am not responsible for how the individual spends it, the State is".
Wait until the Messiah is President and the earmarks will flow to the Reverends.

`I'm suprized there is no mention of the protesters outside of operation push demanding the resignation of Jesse Jackson- I don't read the papers or watch the main stream media but I thought I would have at least seen a mention of it here.

The protesters were only there a few minutes. They had left before the sergeant arrived. The PO's handled it quickly and without incident.

Gee, sounds familiar.

How many times have we heard; "As long as you are right, I will back you. Duh, who cares. It's when we are deemed to be "wrong" in the rush to judgment to throw us under the bus, that is when we need the support from management.

Weis: I'll Be There For Cops When Actions Are Reasonable

CHICAGO (WBBM) - Chicago Police Superintendent Jody Weis says as long as the actions of his police officers are reasonable, he'll be there for them.

WBBM'S Jennifer O'Neill asked Weis about his perceived image problem among some of the rank-and-file and a feeling by some that he might not have their back, as he addresses a recent increase in violence five months into the job.

You're a national treasure, both a poet and a scholar, an honest 21st century Brezhnev!

When SCC's readers can't discern the truth from a lie, however gross or subtle the lie, we have come to rely on you for an honest shake. Being the final bulwark of Freedom and Democracy is a crushing responsibility, but you are, as always, up to the task.

Keep 'it' up 24/7/52 until they lay you to rest, permanently, which hopefully won't be for a long, long, long time.

Thanks again!

The new cruisers allow you to stretch out completely and have a lumbar setting. The cup holders and dash settings are specifically designed for the robust officer. I was very comfortable. I have to give this cars overall nap rating 4 stars. Very quiet, fresh car smell, a headrest that I would put up against any down pillow. I never put it in drive to see how it handles or rides, hopefully I'll never have to. Stay safe and nighty night.

"Reverends going down?" Yeah, right. The only place the con-man reverends are going down to is the bank. To cash more taxpayer's checks. NOTHING will happen. An election is coming and the polititians are scared to piss off the revs. Gee, I wonder what party they all belong to?

$40 at the door with 5 drink tickets, beer, soda, etc.

Oh and 1,000 contact cards on blonds, brunettes and redheads.

SCC again your wisdom is incredible. Thank you, and that the "Cruiser Guy" is not only a moron, but he is another guy who thinks Mike Cronin, the former Club Footed Deputy Chief of Organized Crime, is the greatest cop in the world.

area four is leading the way guy.

Word up!

I made an arrest the other day but it was for domestic battery...I had too! But I'm soooo sorry! I just kept thinking how I was messin' up the stats! I just kept thinking if I had only arrived a few minutes later the "offender" woulda flown the coop! I promise it won't happen again! Area 4 is gonna lead w/ the fewest arrests in the city! You can count on it!

PS - I'm gonna miss Starbucks at Roosevelt/Homan! They're really nice to the police there!

PPS - Only a few more months till it's cold out and that means movie/video game season is back in the "cruiser"!

By the way, a district mourns. The only Starbucks on the mean streets of 011 (3350 W. Roosevelt Rd.) is scheduled to close.

Don't worry...."Dirty Red" will make runs to the one on Harrison & Plymouth Court, and snatch up a tray full of lattes for everyone
(for free of course, with no tip!).
