Save the Date!

Only four more months of this tape being played day after day after day:
  • Anthony Abbate — the Chicago police officer whose videotaped beating of a female bartender was seen around the world — will go to trial on felony charges Nov. 19.
Finally, after 19 November, we'll never ever have to see the Abbate tape again. The story will be old news and the media will archive the video.

Right? Please don't tell us that some local hack outfit actually ran the Abbate video over a story about the towing scandal. That would just be so very asinine.

=====================================
They'll be showing that video on the starship Enterprise. Entire alien civilizations will be structured around it. It's NEVER going away.

Well, Channel 7 News did just that! They ran both pieces seamlessly together like it was one incident!

When does the SOS trial go to trial?

No, channel 7 ran it immediately AFTER the towing arrest story. They segwayed right into the story of the court date being set for Abbate's trial and that he had pleaded innocent.

But we HAVE been treated to the video each and every time they've mentioned the court date. It's all about what 'sells' their product.

ok, im not defending abbate---but like said many times--this should not be a felony. the point that his attorney makes is that the media overplays the video everywhere. where on this earth is abbate going to get an impartial jury and a fair trial???

Sorry SCC, that video will never go away. The news still shows the firehouse party video from 1990 every now and then.

Witness intimidation through the use of his position as an officer of the law SHOULDN'T be a felony??? What third world craphole do YOU live in?

Abbate connects about as much as Paul Konerko. Not guilty of battery! Guilty of assault > misdemeanor.

P.S. I just love the firehouse video especially the guy who dances like Hillbilly Jim.

Wanna bet? I was down in South America doing some work for the government which involved working with indigenious tribes who have never seen or heard of the white man in their entire lives. Even one of them saw the video. He asked me if I new Abatte!

Without Abbatte, there is no J-Fed and his Fed assclown cronies, ie: Brust,Daley, Klimas ( new IAD Director...oh yes, you'll see...)

Without Abbatte, Cozzi is back helping out other coppers on a nightly basis.

Without Abbatte, right now, Phil has retired and Hiram is Superintendent, like it should be.

Without Abbatte, the whole world is not privy to a video of an obese biker "wannabe" who has a star, trying to pummel a marginally attractive ILLEGAL Polish immigrant.

Thanks Tony. You personally ruined the second Largest Police Department in the entire world. I doubt any one else will ever be able to lay claim to that! MAY YOU SUFFER FOREVER MORE, YOU FAT, DRUNKEN PIECE OF FILTH!

Abbate you tub of shit! You gave CPD the blackest eye possible, Rodney King video is Romper Room compared to your bar video! And your drunk fat ass haymakers didn't even land on Olga! You didn't connect once, which is good... but the video looks like you beat her silly.
And maybe for your next court appearance you should shave off your dumb ass Orange County Chopper Paulie SR. mustache and get your achy breaky Billy Ray Cyrus mullet cut off. WTF

Off Topic, Why do some coppers work side jobs at banks, taco joints, construction site security, etc. for $15 to $19 an hour w/1099 tax? Why would anyone pimp their badge for that amount? Security companies charge $33 to $35 an hour for security contracts, then pay off-duty coppers, close to half that amount.
Signed,
Never worked a sidejob

You wrote: "Why would anyone want to pimp their badge" for $19/hr"...

Because I'd rather sleep soundly at night than rely on a convicted felon tow truck driver handing me a wad of cash for directing them business at the scene of an accident. You can't put a price on a clean conscience, dumbass. As soon as your parents wise up and kick your 30-year-old-ass out of their basement, I'd be willing to bet that you'll be the first dude hounding legit coppers at work for part-time gigs. That's if your not indicted first for some illicit means of obtaining supplemental income. Sweet dreams, cocksucker.

"pimp your Badge"
Hey f&*k head, I mentioned legit side jobs you piece of shit, this post has nothing to do with dirty cops on the take. I'm not agaist cops working side jobs you idiot! My question was why do coppers pimp their badge for peanuts e.g. $15 to $19 an hour?
Say what you want, in the end of the day your pimpimg your badge for $15 bucks and hour, that's what Home Depot pays their 3 year employees! Quit boozing and gambling. Go grab your shine box, it time for your side job! While I go fishing at my summer home getaway.
signed,
15 on and never worked a side job!

All the tow truck whackers are driving me crazy. They're all law enforcement/FF wannabes. Amber flashing lights don't give anyone the right to commit moving violations. Pull them over whenever they're making illegal U-turns or speeding to accidents. If you want charge them with using a police scanner to aid in committing a criminal act as well. I've talked to several N side complainants who almost got hit by tow shitheads. NEVER go on the zone asking for them, nothing good can come of that. Always order emergency tows properly through the zone/CW.
