Was it for actual civil rights violation or the Fed's simple little lying under oath BS?

He got the Martha Stewart charges of lying to the feds. Proves that the feds never had a case for civil rights violations. All they can prove is that he lied to the feds after saying one thing in 2003and another several years later.

Rash of armed robberies by m/1s in 016. Keep doing work in ghetto districts you asswipes instead of bidding here and helping protect homeland. Bt 1633 and 1634 have fallen. 1632 is half fallen. Lot of coppers and city workers in 1631 beat and thats next( no help from 3rd watch). Gang chief lives off Northwest Highway so that Safe Edison Park thing is a lie. Have a nice day!

Typical.

I don't agree with the "old days" shortcut methods, I believe that we as coppers should treat those we come in contact with respectfully and reasonably until we have a reason not to, and we need to be careful not to let ourselves tarnish one person because someone we dealt with earlier was a scumbag, would not help, etc. That said, do we really need to go back mega-years to try to prosecute some weak charges that are not even germane to the original issue. You accused him of torture, you can't honestly prove it, now the full power of the federal government is brought to bear to stick some bullshit charges. Reminds me of the Rodney King case...and what a fine citizen he turned out to be. The LAPD Sgt. saved his life by not allowing deadly force when it was justifiable, and gets prosecuted because minorities would rather support the like-colored criminals that prey upon them, than back the law that would stop them.

I agree, I have been locking up criminals until today, but from now on, case suspended. No more talking witnesses into testifying, no more building cases. You want anarchy, you want your "brothers" to rape, kill, drug and pillage your community, you got it. Shove your oath up your ass, I took an oath to protect and serve the citizenry, not to be villified for bullshit based upon some ghettofied liberal agenda. Let these ridiculous lefters try to control these savages with their respect and reason...lol...good luck.

I saw a lot of things but never that. I did not know Burge, but did know several of the guys who worked for him. All Bull Shit. Check who is behind this.

This may be Fitzgerald trying to show that he's not an evil Republican snd keep his job. I predict that Obamessiah will not replace Fitzgerald immediately. He will be left in place to continue this investigation and to pursue Blagojevich. Blago will be the sacrifice to show Obamessiah fights Democrat corruption. Indicting Blago will also justify a wrist-slap sentence for Tony Rezko, who will testify against Blago (and only Blago). Blago will be indicted and forced from office - then after a long trial will plead out to minor charges for no jail time.

However, while I think Fitz is currying favor with the Left on this, I don't think he thought it through. Daley was Cook Cty SA then, and the city has protected Burge; this could embarrass him, which Obamessiah doesn't want now. Than again, this might be setting up to push Daley out for Jackson Jr.

OT for a minute my Brothers and Sisters: Why don't we give the Supt. some air? I don't know the man personally but he came into a hell of a mess that took years to create. Idiot Cmdrs. stealing and going to prison and scandals everywhere. I've been on the job a long time and have worked in SHIT. The Supt. is trying to right the sinking ship and I find no fault of his if it takes time. And to all the young POLICE who take offense to him wearing the uniform, he knows more about law enforcement than you'll ever know. Also personal attacks on peoples' looks,personalities or spouses-children should be kept to yourselfs. None of us are perfect. I have met the Supt's wife on several occassions and I'll tell you she is a FIRST CLASS ACT. She's the nicest person I've come across in a long time(and easy on the eyes fellas but she's married). Let's do the job and forget the B.S. bickering. Jesus, we're CHICAGO POLICE OFFICERS!

if you boys don't stand together in unity with Jon Burge, I promise you Daley will walk all over you. The demand should be made lous and clear, if they have a valid charge against Burge then they MUST have one for Daley. He was the top dog lawyer of Cook County. Demand accountability and, if Patrick Fitzergerald is prosecuting Burge then so should he Daley.

AND if Obama is elected, Fitzgerald will be fired in a heartbeat, replaced with a more friendly attorney.

Don't let this happen.

"That was a 1987 arson fire that killed seven people, including Hobley's wife and child. Hobley remains under federal investigation for that crime, even though he received a pardon during former Gov. George Ryan's clemency decision that emptied the state's Death Row."

Madison Hobley is the star witness? That's what they got? Well I guess you can
t bring our his murder conviction in court since Ryan pardoned him. If Ryan hadn't pardoned him there would be no chrges brought forth because they could bring all that out then.

Patrick “Ham Sandwich” Fitzgerald finally got Jon Burge indicted. I’ll bet he’s really proud of himself. He and his police-hating cabal must be pouring the Champaign tonight. It’s too bad he didn’t use some of that energy he used to ensnare Burge to get some of the real rats that are ruing this city. Daley uses the city treasury as his own piggy bank. Jesse Jack-ass-son doesn’t file income taxes for years, but the US Attorney turns a blind eye toward his crimes. How many businesses has Jack-ass-son shaken down under the pretense of civil rights activities. Daley’s fingerprints are all over this abomination.

This is just another example of why the smart thing to do when you go to work is to put your hands in your pockets and not take them out for your shift, except to take a piss. And don’t think that Weis didn’t play a part in this fraud. The FEDS are not your friends!!! Most of them couldn’t make it as the street police. Hang in there, Jon. Fuck the Feds.

But he cannot figure out a way to indict the most openly corrupt mayor, governor, and county board president in the country.

After listening to US Attorney Patrick Fitzgerald regarding this matter I would be hesitant to submit to a deposition in a civil case in the future. Also the City should allow me to pick my own lawyer because the individual they provided Burge apparently did a poor job.

If an individual, with numerous felony convictions, stated that I did something inappropriate and the Feds believed, after listening to Flint Taylor, him I could be in trouble.

Also the Mayor, did you see him today, is not going to stand behind me!

Reluctantly I must demand full immunity prior to testifying and even then if I am not 100% sure I cannot respond.

Look at Burge. Look at him on the news. Watch him.

That's your future.

He is you in your retirement. You, who will also be haunted by the arrest of those criminals that society has since forgiven. Haunted by that society that now wants to punish you for making the murderer suffer.

You see, people forget murders. They forgive murderers. As time passes, people look at murder and they think it wasn't so bad. Even when someone burns their own children to death. Time heals those wounds.

Then, people get mad that the murderer suffered. The murderer is still alive. He spent all that time in jail. He didn't have to be in jail that long. That was too long. We never should have put him in jail in the first place. Those other people are dead. We can't remember them anymore. The murderer is still alive. We saw him on TV. The murderer needs our help now.

The people tell themselves that the murderer probably didn't do it anyway. And even if he did, we can't remember that far back anyway. We just can't be sure anymore, so we'll just free him.

Then, the people come after you. They want your pension, your home, your reputation, your peace of mind, and your freedom. They want you to suffer. It's all your fault that the murderer went to jail. If it wasn't for you, we wouldn't feel bad that the murderer on TV was in jail. We don't think he did whatever that was anymore. And, even if he did, we don't care anymore. We forgot why he was there anyway.

It's your fault this happened. It's all your fault. If it wasn't for you, it never would have happened.

Don't feel too bad. The people will forgive you in time, probably after you die. By then, they'll move on to blaming someone else for the way their lives turned out. But for you, it will never end.

Remember that the next time you reach for your handcuffs.

This may be Fitzgerald trying to show that he's not an evil Republican snd keep his job. I predict that Obamessiah will not replace Fitzgerald immediately. He will be left in place to continue this investigation and to pursue Blagojevich. Blago will be the sacrifice to show Obamessiah fights Democrat corruption. Indicting Blago will also justify a wrist-slap sentence for Tony Rezko, who will testify against Blago (and only Blago). Blago will be indicted and forced from office - then after a long trial will plead out to minor charges for no jail time.

However, while I think Fitz is currying favor with the Left on this, I don't think he thought it through. Daley was Cook Cty SA then, and the city has protected Burge; this could embarrass him, which Obamessiah doesn't want now. Than again, this might be setting up to push Daley out for Jackson Jr.

But Cozzi wasn't in a fight for survival, he put cuffs on a drunk, asshole that was in a wheel chair and proceeded to whoop the guys ass. I don't give a rat's ass what any other copper thinks.That was a Bitch Ass move ! And now everyone wants to write how wrong it is to judge in hindsight. The only thing that I do agree on was that it was Bullsh%* to come back and try to convict him a second time. But what Cozzi did was still a
"Bitch Move ". Burge was a little before my time but I still have more than 10 years on the job working Northside, Westside, Southside, and back to Northside.

Hmmph. Torture of prisoners in Area 2 and Area 3? Damn, I worked in both detective areas, about that time, but didn’t hear a thing. Those of us in General Assignments were only one floor away, so you’d think we’d at least hear some screaming. But then, our typewriters made a lot of noise, as we merrily unfounded damage to property, simple battery, and theft cases, to make the boss look good. We didn’t usually actually arrest anyone, so didn’t need to torture, we just booked in on arrests by the district guys.
Come to think of it, though, the lights did dim a few times. Strike that. I don’t want to get called to testify, I just want to continue getting my pension. I’ve reached a milestone. I’ve collected more in pension than I got in salary from the CPD. I hope some of the rest of you poor bastards can someday say the same, but it won’t work out for you

I would love to bid there and work for a purpose (protect tax payers, my family, people that give a shit)but the truth is you have to have

For all the Burge haters out there, several officers were present when Burge told them, quite firmly, don't fuck this up by touching these guys...Only after the Detectives were done with the interrogations and the Wilsons were headed to or already at 26 and Cal did they end up with any injuries..Burge has been the scape goat for the sins of others who were so selfish that their anger was more important then justice for O'Brien and Fahey. Burge might go to jail in order to ensure justice for O'Brien and Fahey and those who fucked this up, well you just have to live with yourselves.. It's terrible Burge has been persecuted like this and you can hate the feds all you want this but make no mistake, coppers did this to Burge and they lack his courage to do the right thing..As for any black box, there was zero evidence of any injuries caused by anything electrical..Back in the day some clever detectives had props they used as pretend lie detectors which did nothing to the defendant except trick him into thinking he was on a lie box..Everybody in this investigation knows this but the corrupt defense lawyers fabricated this electrocuting claim to get their clients off and they even got some detectives, who were less then good at their job but they claim there were other reasons they weren't given better cases to work on, to provide additional innuendo that a "black box" was frequently used..Of course these detectives never actually observed anything cause if they had they'd be just as wrong for not stopping it. This is racial baloney and the worst part is everyone stopped caring about O'Brien and Fahey along the way, except Burge that is...Sad day...

Most of these comments are so off base.

First, this wasn't a cop being a little rough when making an arrest. This was a commander who not only participated in torture, he created new and interesting ways to do and to promote it to other detectives. He gave a black eye to this department all across the country. Is he really a sympathetic figure?

Second, in many cases, the torture was being done to people who did NOT commit the crime. We have a death penalty moratorium in this state because of the more than a dozen people who confessed under torture who turned out to be innocent.

So, sure, you'll say they might not have committed the crime but they were not "innocent." Then you're missing the bigger point that the person who committed the murder was NOT discovered and punished, and out there perhaps committing additional crimes.

Third, you take this case as an example of why you shouldn't do aggressive police work???? Give me a break. If you are not out there creating means of torture and systematically torturing dozens of people, this case doesn't mean shit in terms of how you do your job.

Yes, times aren't good now. Yes, there are legit concerns about getting jammed for doing what you thought you should do or because you made a mistake, but that is very different from this. If you use Burge as an excuse to lay down on the job, then you are full of shit and looking for excuses not to work.

Burge, what ever he did, it was 30 years ago. The BS about the civil trial perjury was just their way to hang the prick.

U.S. Attorney Patrick J. Fitzgerald knows he is going bye-bye soon with a new president. No matter if it is Obama or McCain. He needed a big one to write the book about. And this one is the big one for him.

Not to mention that J-Fed probably had some role in this indictment. J-Fed needed to have the heat taken off him and the crime stats. This arrest will make most of the minority communities in Chicago happy and their minds off J-Fed for a while.

Take a look at the indictment. A question was asked of Burge through a written iterogatory(if you've been involved in civil suits you know what this is). The question was basically have you tortuterd anyone at area two and do you know of anyone torturing a citizen at area two. Burge answered "No". That's it folks! That's why they locked him up today. The G has said that since the special prosecuters determined that there was some abuse going on at area two, Burge was lying in the written answers he provided, through his lawyer, in the interrogatories. WOW! This is scary people.....real scary. Keep going that extra mile guys. F**K no! We got to give them the police they want. The police they have asked for and the police they are demanding. Burge was a good cop.....rough around the edges but torture???? hell no! Maybe a crack upside the head sometime but big f'in deal. That's not going to make me confess to killing my kids, what about you? And besides....how many times do you think that a commanding officer of a violent crimes unit is involved in the interrogation of a suspect? I'll tell you from experience....virtually never. These pukes are all jumping on the Burge gravy train. I don't know. I'm so frustrated, so disappointed. I used to live this job, doing the right thing, helping people, putting bad guys away. I want to quit. I really do. But I need the job for a little bit longer. Maybe I'll just quit doing anything. I'm going to protect mine....and yours, but if the person killed is nothing to me.....I'm sorry, can't go the extra mile, can't take any chances. I'll just do the reports and go to the next case and keep repeating this.

If the evidence was so overwhelming why wasn't he charged by the feds whgen it was allegedly occurring? because they had nothing then and they have nothing now, which is why they hit him with a trumped-up purjury charge, he will beat this case easily and hopefully sue the shit out of the feds.....

Knock off the Weis bullshit, troll.

Many months ago on SCC, I summarized my early December phone conversation with the then FBI SAC, Philadelphia.

In our conversation, I emphasized the demoralizing effects of the deeply-entrenched political clout that has made the CPD the most dysfunctional big-city PD in the nation: sinecure assignments, incontrovertible evidence of rigged promotions and no objective criteria for awards and extracurricular education opportunities (FBI-Quantico, NUTI, etc.)

I enthusiastically welcomed him as top cop, speaking of his golden opportunity to break the clout stranglehold. As an "outsider", he could bring desperately needed reforms to the CPD clusterfuck. I envisioned him restoring integrity, excellence, pride, professionalism, honor and morale. Our best and brightest officers would rise through the ranks. No longer would the inept morons and clout babies manage the CPD.

I even specifically named the most outstanding and respected boss in the entire dept.

Later, I asked him to give a categorical and unequivocal written CPD defintion of "merit" (i.e.: CLOUT). He never responded to this simple request.

The Jody Weis "honeymoon" ended long ago. He has repeatedly proven himself to be nothing more than the feckless puppet of the corrupt Shortshanks. He speaks incessant bullshit. All talk; no action.

Despite my initial optimism and naivete, I can only sadly conclude that Jody P. Weis is just another clueless careerist and political hack extraordinaire--an abysmal failure as CPD Supt. He knows it and King Richard II knows this all too well. Unless you are delusional, YOU know it too.

While we both condemn ad hominem attacks as far beyond the pale of civility, the rest of your post is utter drivel.

YOU are in dire need of a reality check. This also applies to Mr. Weis.

OT for a minute my Brothers and Sisters: Why don't we give the Supt. some air? I don't know the man personally but he came into a hell of a mess that took years to create. Idiot Cmdrs. stealing and going to prison and scandals everywhere. I've been on the job a long time and have worked in SHIT. The Supt. is trying to right the sinking ship and I find no fault of his if it takes time. And to all the young POLICE who take offense to him wearing the uniform, he knows more about law enforcement than you'll ever know. Also personal attacks on peoples' looks,personalities or spouses-children should be kept to yourselfs. None of us are perfect. I have met the Supt's wife on several occassions and I'll tell you she is a FIRST CLASS ACT. She's the nicest person I've come across in a long time(and easy on the eyes fellas but she's married). Let's do the job and forget the B.S. bickering. Jesus, we're CHICAGO POLICE OFFICERS!

Why not put TC back where he belongs? The man has the respect of his officers and gets results. Oh yeah, I forgot...you don't need either as long as you have LAPA credentials and a ride on Avila's coattails.


Huh? Respect of WHAT officers? JG is legendary for his goofs many years ago, but he's done a great job so far and raised activity by over 60% over the guy you say is "respected". TC and his sister made LT in the same class, and their dad was an "old time boss". Big surprise. JG is NOT LAPA, NOT merit and not beholden to any politician. Look into TC's Federal beef while he was in 018...may as well be wearing a hood to roll call.

Lot of people posting on this thread and others not to do any police work. Do nothing, dont' give Daley any revenue, don't do shit, go home safe, yada yada yada.

If you do nothing, then what do we need cops for?

How about this? Do your job the way you're trained to do it. Don't motherfuck everyone, don't slap anyone unless you have to, be professional but do your job.

Look out for everyone, be careful, be professional, but more importantly, don't be a dogass.

When everyone is a dogass, then the whole thing goes to shit. When it all goes to shit and the city has to lay coppers off because it can't pay them, then don't whine about it.

Most of these comments are so off base.

First, this wasn't a cop being a little rough when making an arrest. This was a commander who not only participated in torture, he created new and interesting ways to do and to promote it to other detectives. He gave a black eye to this department all across the country. Is he really a sympathetic figure?

Second, in many cases, the torture was being done to people who did NOT commit the crime. We have a death penalty moratorium in this state because of the more than a dozen people who confessed under torture who turned out to be innocent.

So, sure, you'll say they might not have committed the crime but they were not "innocent." Then you're missing the bigger point that the person who committed the murder was NOT discovered and punished, and out there perhaps committing additional crimes.

Third, you take this case as an example of why you shouldn't do aggressive police work???? Give me a break. If you are not out there creating means of torture and systematically torturing dozens of people, this case doesn't mean shit in terms of how you do your job.

Yes, times aren't good now. Yes, there are legit concerns about getting jammed for doing what you thought you should do or because you made a mistake, but that is very different from this. If you use Burge as an excuse to lay down on the job, then you are full of shit and looking for excuses not to work.

Give me a Fu*&ing Break !! I'm a cop just like most everyone else here that reads the blog.But I was trained to uphold the law.And most important.If during your arrest,if the offender wants to fight you and defeat the arrest prior to putting on the cuffs.Then it's a fight for survival,period ! But Cozzi wasn't in a fight for survival, he put cuffs on a drunk, asshole that was in a wheel chair and proceeded to whoop the guys ass. I don't give a rat's ass what any other copper thinks.That was a Bitch Ass move ! And now everyone wants to write how wrong it is to judge in hindsight. The only thing that I do agree on was that it was Bullsh%* to come back and try to convict him a second time. But what Cozzi did was still a
"Bitch Move ". Burge was a little before my time but I still have more than 10 years on the job working Northside, Westside, Southside, and back to Northside.

Not ONE of these people are, were,or are going to be good respectable people in their life time; whether they were tortured by Burge or not.
These people were and will continue to be career crimminals until the day each of them die. Guarunteed.
Policeman and women are laying down because they're not stoopid.
What they encounter on a day to day basis vs. what the news reports, what "paid off" reverands spew to the media, and a mayor who controls their department. It isn't worth the aggrevation anymore.
The Justice department indicted a ham sandwich today.
Cozi is another example of this. He smacked a sassy asshole who didn't even care to cooperate with IAD. But the Feds pushed the issue to charge an unbelievable hard working cop who made a mistake and paid his dues.
These are truthful facts, not opinions.
To end this rant, please correct if I'M wrong; 4 crimminals accuse tortured by Burge, the entire system is overhauld because of this, and 2 of the 4 are in trouble with the Feds again?
So the entire system is revamped because 2 innocent people got beat up by cops.
That sends a huge message to patrolman and women not to do a fucking thing.
P.S. How many policeman and women are beat up, shot at, or killed and the offenders aren't Federally indicted, let alone by the States Attorneys Office. Its dead job.

Masters, who has no idea about this job. When in history has depolicing ever occured on this job? You couldn't get two officers to agree on lunch. Yet morale is so bad, oficers slowed down. Arrests are down and crime is rampant. Something stinks.

Now I totally take offense to the statement Jfed knows more about Law Enforcement etc. Federal investigations entail totally different tactics and directions than street level city policing. He knows NOTHING about the job he has been tasked with. So are you saying that a secruity guard at Walmart knows as much as you ass hole about running the department or how about just doing an investigation. Mike Masters and Mike Shields, get off of the blog and get off your fucking knees!!!

This guy knows NOTHING about CPD nor running it. This is really sad because I live in the neighborhood of Chicago. Mike Masters lives downtown and so does the Superintendent. Hell, if Daley paid me for the work I have actually done than pay these idiots who have no idea, then maybe me and my 2 kids could head downtown also. Watch this, I bet we get 2% a year for 4 years while Jfed makes $300,000, Mike Masters Makes $160,000 and all of his federal buddies make $150,000 plus!! Together, they have all of what, a year and a half seniority together!!!

As for you being on the job when Burge was here, well who gives a fuck. Where you a dick in Area 2? Did you witness him beating confessions out of assholes? You probably didn't know the fuck who he was until it became news worthy.
