Federal Charges?

  • Ending a nearly two-year investigation, Cook County prosecutors said Tuesday they will not charge any Chicago police officers in a 2005 fatal shooting of a motorist who was riddled with bullets after he allegedly tried to drive over an officer.

    Although the shooting of Emmanuel Lopez initially was ruled by police to be justified, the Cook County state's attorney's office opened an investigation in 2006 after a private attorney brought forward evidence that contradicted the accounts of the five involved officers.

    Charges would have sent shock waves through a Police Department already under siege for a string of misconduct scandals.
We wouldn't put it past him. And truly, that is a sad commentary on his regime.

Don't trust this prick Jody Weis! Besides being a lying Fed, he is not informed, Daley keeps him in the dark on certain things and thus he bumbles and blunders along.

Is he still saying "up on the south side" and other nonsense that instantly let's us know he doesn't have a clue about either the CPD or Chicago culture?

Remember those naive officers who wrote on this blog that "Weis deserved a chance" and "he sounds like he means well, let's give him a chance." How does that crap sound now?

He is deceitful AND ignorant. A dangerous combination.

SCC,

Have you seen or heard about the Dallas Maverick's basketball player Josh Howard disrespecting the National Anthem?

Josh Howard became irate and stated, " 'The Star-Spangled Banner' is going on. I don't celebrate this [expletive]. I'm black."

Howard goes on to make a difficult-to-discern comment that includes a reference to Democratic presidential candidate Barack Obama.

Great role model for children, Josh Howard,NBA players do smoke marijuana:

For all those who patronize any thing related to the NBA here is what you are providing to people who hate America:

http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kgT_L10_7t4

Mark Cuban the Dallas Maverick's owner defended Howard's actions. Mark Cuban may be the next owner of the Chicago Cubs,something to remember.

Remember this when you patronize professional sports with your hard earned money. I refuse to support thugs at incredibly inflated prices. Go Kane County Cougars and Chicago Wolves.

Hey fuck Terry Elk, he went on tv calling the PO's all sorts of names. The asa office said after a second investigation that there was nothing to any of his acusations and so did an independant investigator. The media doesn't like to tell the full story but they were sure willing to put his lying ass on tv. These piece of shit lawyers like Elk and Lowie couldn't make a living in the real world but they know this city will pay.

Here's my sad take: While I really don't want anyone indicted, I do believe that the State's declination is going to make Terry Ekl a veritable fortune in settlement money. The dead illegal would have been worth a lot less in front of a jury if some cops were behind bars paying for it. Now Ekl can scream and yell in front of a jury about a "cover up." That shit translates to mega-dollar jury verdicts. We're screwed, any way you slice it or dice it.

Thanks for the great jog in the Rezko trial. But when is government official “A” going to be indicted? Why is Blago still walking the streets while everyone else on the shakedown shuttle been convicted or plead out? I hope that politics is not holding up his indictment till after the presidential election! Let the chips fall where they may now!

And while we are talking why has the Al Sanchez trial not started? The faster he is convicted the faster you can indict individual “A” and maybe his wife. Then maybe his partner who started the HDO. You have to keep working up that food chain. But what is the hold up?

To the working press.

I know that you guys read this board. I have one question for all of you. Why after the Mayor gave a Q&A with the feds and he was provided a court reporter copy of his statements which he signed, have none of you asked he to release it to the public? Are all of you guys drinking his Kool Aid? I’m retired and have one last wish before I kick the bucket. To see him in jail.

Hey Retiree,

Since you have no worries about the vengeful tactics of the CPD and the City of Chicago why don't you do the working police a favor? File a (FOIA) Freedom of Information Request for those transcripts and then send them to SCC.

I am sure that they will provide public service by disseminating them properly.

Mr Lawyer it doesn't sound reasonable. No private attorney came up with any evidence, Elk got the same hack he always uses and made a bunch of shit up. There was no credible evidence, I was on the scene after the shooting it was all good, Elk is just looking for a pay day. Look at who his clients are this illegals family and the professional victim in the abbate case.

It is funny to hear so much vitriol leveled against illegals. I can guarantee that YOU, the police, will never get rid of this problem. I find it funny that you "drop a dime" to ICE, though we are a sanctuary city, because as soon as you report them and ICE deports them, they are back the next month. I am reminded of the funny caricature of the little dutch boy placing his finger in the leak of a dyke, while the water overflows around the dyke. I respect the police, I really do, but you guys are fighting a losing battle.

The next President, be he Obama or McCain is going to ramrod an amnesty bill through Congress and Americans won't even know what hit them.

No it's not funny. We 'legals' are displaying righteous anger, so to speak. And thank you for speaking in such a condescending tone to Americans. This 3rd party support for Illegals tends to fuel the 'vitriol' as you put it. So your surpise is artificial. In fact, you expect anger, and you relish bringing about this anger. So don't patronize us. We are Americans and we are legal. Your people are criminals, and add to the top of that, they don't even like America. If I moved to China you can bet I'd start eating rice and speaking Chinese. The Italians, the Germans, the Greeks, the Dutch, the Scots who came her let go of their former country, embraced their new homeland with pride, and learned English. What makes the illegal Mexican so arrogant? You tell me. THe virtiol will continue and the majority rule of our Democracy will win out, as evidence already by changes in federal law punishin corporations for hiring illegals. Perhaps you missed this? Perhaps you are simply ignorant. This is not the direction of amnesty ... is is quite the opposite. Illegals, and let's be honest, they are 90% Mexican will NOT be allowed to work here, so they will have every motivation to return to the home "that they love so much."

Good Bye!

Wait in line legally like my ancestors did.

And to the Mexicans who did wait in line. Good for you.
