Grau Goes to SA Office

  • Former top cop Hiram Grau, who was hired by Chris Kennedy to head security at the Merchandise Mart, has been snagged by new Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez.

    • • Translation: Wasting no time in shaking up her management staff, Alvarez has hired Grau as her new deputy chief investigator for the narcotics special prosecutions division.

We'd imagine with the recent upheaval on the CPD end, we might see more than a few high profile defections to the State's Attorney's office. After all, a City and a County pension? Watch for some big names to follow Grau.

Alvarez has made another not-so-public change. Since she has taken office, there have been virtually NO felony DUI's charged. The commentary from her people is that she doesn't believe in that law and therefore does not want it enforced. charges are not to be approved.

Could it be that many of those charged have been illegals? And her constituents have put pressure on her not to charge, else that new ICE office at 26th street will snag those illegals who come through there on felony DUI charges?

Since when do we get to pick and choose what laws to enforce? I thought we were the instrument of the law, not the arbiter of the law. If it's on the books and you don't like it, you lobby to change it, but you can't decide not to enforce it.

But, this is the kingdom of Daley. And a 'sanctuary city', to boot. And I guess SOME people do get to pick and choose which laws will be enforced. And which won't. Thanks, Anita.

I called this months ago. I was told I was insane, that there was no way Hiram would leave private industry to come back to the political rats nest.

Fuck you, pay me! ha ha ha

Holy Diary of a Madman Batman!!!

He might be bad. He might be mad. But, he ain’t crazy.

Lisa thinks he’s crazy and her father thinks he’s lazy. But who’s fooling who.

Truth is Blago ain’t crazy or mad. He’s playing the crying game. Blago has no choice and must settle for the big house in the end.

What could Blago give in exchange for a shorter sentence?

Well there are plenty of crooks hanging around Chicago?

Maybe a mayor or political insider or everyone he has made deals with over the last six years?

Da mayor is endangered more by Harris, then by Blago.

Emanuel-- if he’s caught on tape will be pressured to quit the Chief of Staff job and maybe do federal time so he will have to give up someone too?

Junior G-Man gots his balls in a vise and is already singing a sad song.

Maybe a future president and his wife?

Do you think Fitz has brass balls?

Another president still in office. Well they did get Nixon to resign. Didn’t they.

Wow twice in a life time.

Whatever happens in the next few months or two years after the trial and sentencing begins Blago is going to talk about someone to somebody investigating corruption here in Chicago. Harris and all the rest will too.

What these politicians whores and their bag man have to say and who gets fucked is anyone guess.

O’Mama better figure out how to get rid of Fitz before its too late... Uncle Barry might be writing a new book entitled a diary of a mad black....?

Grau deserves whatever he gets. It was disgraceful the way the city allowed Weis to push him aside. As we've all seen for about the past year now, Mayor Daley didn't "trade up" at all in hiring a man so lacking in the skills needed to run the CPD.
Alvarez gains, Daley gets the mess that CPD has become rubbed further in his face.

It must be nice to have political clout. Grau is a nice guy but merit all the way. The more things change the more they stay the same.

Grau is a real gentleman but affirmative action all the way. Not surprised to see him take another affirmative action move into the SA office. Another guy that thinks that he will live forever.

Most of you clowns don't have a clue about what is happening at the SA's office and you should shut the fuck up unless you have some personal knowledge. The first thing you jagbags do whenever there is news is to act like a bunch of old ladies and piss and moan. Grau was a good boss and is probably making a hell of a lot less than he was in private industry. Alvarez has already moved out some people who were doing squat. The chief of the trial division MKM hadn't tried a felony case in 14 fucking years and was not capital case qualified because she refused to take the training.
Why don't you old fucking ladies wait to see how it shakes out before you start bitching about stuff you don't have a clue about? Shit. So many of you talk about being the real Police but act like a bunch of pussies. Grow a pair!

If Anita really wanted change, she should have promoted a lifer to a DC spot. The lifers there get the shaft. Like an earlier blogger stated, "What's the difference from the old bunch of retired CPD to the new bunch of retired CPD?"
You can put lipstick on a pig....well you get the picture.

To the GOOF who is talking stuff about Hiram Grau, I grew up with him and worked with him in the Gang North Days, Hiram is a great guy, outstanding Cop and his daughter is NOT on the job, it's his sister, she is a Sgt. who was on disability due to a seroius injury to her hand and wrist, but as the economy changes and if you don't konw about disability 3/4 pay you don't get raises, you get 75% of what you were at when you went on disability, both of the Graus are class acts. I guess it's just another person who knows nothing.

Grau worked maybe 2 months in Narcotics. I like him, but she is just doing another political favor. When will our leaders ever learn!

If that unit brings in Chiczewski
AND "I'm not going nowhere" Cronin, then the office of the Cook County State's Attorney is just an extension of the case mismanagement and bullshit that we've had to tolerate for years under Dickless Devine.

I just don't get it. Can't any of these bosses retire and stay retired? It's not like they can take the money with them after they're dead. Get a life already.

At least (RET.) Capt. Murphy didn't get the spot. That would have been a typical Irish move had Ald. Allen (38th) become S.A. Viva Mexico - Viva Hiram - Viva L.A.P.A. Hiram will be good.
