Ho' Gets Fo'

  • Despite a tearful plea for mercy, proclaiming she’s “no monster,” former Ald. Arenda Troutman was sentenced Tuesday to four years in federal prison on mail fraud and tax fraud charges that were part of a corruption investigation.

    An emotional Troutman hung her head and apologized to her ward, the city and for bringing “shame” to her family. “As God as my witness, I am no monster. I am not a criminal and I never helped criminals,” Troutman said.
Not a criminal? Never helped criminals?
  • A prosecutor in the case said Tuesday the corruption case grew out of a probe into the Black Disciples street gang. Assistant U.S. Attorney Joseph Alesia said agents doing surveillance on gang kingpin Marvel Thompson saw a meeting take place between the ex-alderman and Thompson.
  • Troutman admitted she coerced kickbacks totaling $21,500 over the years from developers to support their projects in her South Side ward and, in one case, outside her ward. She was famously caught on wiretaps saying that all aldermen are “ho’s.”
Hmmmm. Well, good riddance for now. There's plenty more where she came from if the feds know where to fish.

'renda better save her $35/month pay to buy ear plugs and ibuprofen from the commissary, and maybe an extra towel to cover her head from the light. These are about the only creature comforts available when you're sleeping on a bare, slippery steel bunk with a lumpy old mattress maybe 1/4" thick in places. Maybe 40 other motherfuckers in that cement-block room, yelling their heads off at all hours. Expect 90 minutes' sleep per day -- in pieces here and there.

Every day 24 hours long -- broken up into so many arbitrary chunks by meals and counts and work and CO's shift changes and more counts until you won't know which end is up.

Not like sitting at home with the unknown leafy green substance and the unknown white powdered substance -- no,no.

If I am not mistaken, wasn't Roland Burris the Attorney General for Illinois. Why is it that he is not being held to a higher standard in his questioning and depositions given but whenever a police officer gets in trouble, an officer is held to a higher standard because he/she should have known better. Burris was the top law enforcement officer for the state. Unbelieveable.

When pushed on the subject as to how he feels personally, Cullerton continues to waffle on the subject. Obviously Shortshanks hasn't told him the answer to that question.

Off Topic, Have you guys been over to the Philly Domelights? A Judge disrespected a Memorial set up for their Fallen Officer who was gunned down several days ago.
When the Judge asked a P.O. to take down the memorial she refused, so he went to the Capt. and Inspector and asked them to have it removed. Both of them refused and told him the Memorial would stay up. The Judge then took it upon himself to remove the Memorial which sparked anger from officers and the FOP. They even tore down the parking sign reserved for the Judge at the police station and are demanding he be removed from that court forever.
Way to go Philly Officers and especially the two bosses who stood up to a disrespectful Judge on a power trip. That would never happen here with all the balless bosses he have at the C.P.D.

I just love this feeble attempt to get a reduced sentance from the judge. This was taken from the trib:

"This society is real cruel to young black boys who don't have instruction and guidance," she said in seeking mercy from Castillo. "They'll get swallowed up in the belly of the beast."

Troutman only paid 400 buck property taxes on a two story rehabbed home worth over 300 grand. I think every politition living in Chicago should reveal their property taxes bill and their water bill. Don't forget Congressman Guiteraez who paid the property taxes for a vacant lot when in fact he had a luxury home on the land. This is how they take care of themselves.

It wasn't unusual to get a score of units responding to a 10-1, even with "no cars available" on the old Zone 4. Those blue Mars lights came out of the woodwork, sirens screamin' and nightsticks swingin'.

Out of respect, the locals called us "da REAL muthafuckin' PO-leece", 4001 W. Fillmore St. That PROUD label stuck. We worked hard and God knows, we played hard. We all bled BLUE! Great bosses! Great times! Great morale!

CPD Issues Burglary Alert

Steve Miller Reporting

CHICAGO (WBBM) -- Chicago Police have issued an alert - after a string of burglaries and home invasions on the North and Northwest Sides.

Police say the scenario works likes this: A knock at the door - or the doorbell rings.

Somebody says he's a new neighbor. Or he's there from the water department. Or the gas company. And he needs to get inside.

And while he's there, police say, other people who have come in with him start looking around for things to steal.

In at least one case, police say, the homeowner was physically accosted.

Chicago Police issued one community alert almost two weeks ago, with word of five home invasions on the North and Northwest Sides.

Since then, police say there have been three more incidents.

From the trib at 11:30 am today: Cops probe video of officer removing bus passenger

Video shot from a person who has alot of nerve getting involved with a Police Officer trying to not have a problem with someone on a bus who you can hear at the end of the video...

Now I watch the video, and I am a civilian and not an expert on these types of matters, I think I have a pretty good idea what is right and wrong though.

UMMMM ??? What did the cop do wrong, ok wrong question, I didn't see anything wrong here. The guy doesn't respond, the cop tries to get him to move, the guy is uncooperative, the cop tries to get him off the bus, which I see as a cop trying to give him a break actually, and then there is the cop holding him and saying sometihng like, you wanna fight, you wanna fight, which to me if I am the guy I take as, don't fight me, don't fight me, because that is the tone...

Am I nuts, what the hell did I miss, the cop swore, is that the issue ? is this even news ????

I feel for you guys, if this is what is generally regarded as abuse. I see a guy controlling a situation, and if I am on the bus, I am glad he is controlling the situation.

Especially after what happened to Officer Francis...Jesus is this fucked up to make this into a story.

I'm sorry but the trib site did not post my comments so i figured maybe I'd post them here. Fuckin assholes.

Oh great. Another Chicago cop video. Go to Breaking News Chicago and scroll down. Someone on the bus had a video camera where they were removing a shitbird--or was he a decoy?

Plus I love the little touch at the end....you can join an organization "CHICAGO COP WATCH.ORG" And their motto? "IF YOU SEE SOMETHING, SAY SOMETHING."

Beautiful, just beautiful. Now these coppers will be thrown UNDER the bus. Let's watch Jodie decide whether this is a 'mistake.' Jagoff.

NO WORK, NO HOW, NO WAY. FUCK THESE PEOPLE! Bet if that stupid ass yuppie was getting HIS ASS kicked he wouldn't have been asking for a badge number.

ACT AS IF YOU ARE ALWAYS, ALWAYS ON CAMERA. This sure looks like they're out there setting us up.

I'm telling you, the bus thing stinks. You mean the guy just HAPPENED to have a video camera with a bird's eye view? And just HAPPENED to have it ready to roll?
I'm betting it was a copwatch.com setup--throw some booze on somebody, dress them up, and have them act like they are not resisting.....so they don't get their ass kicked by the poleeece.

Plus, with all those little cameras that hide in buttons, they could intentionally walk up to you and provoke you...so you swear, big deal--it plays bad on the air.

But we are not the girl scouts, we are the police. And Richard Francis is that officers best defense. I still can't figure out why he let the guy keep his hands in his pockets for so long, unless it only looked like that on the video.

Setup or not, bet the shooter of the video is never found.

IMPORTANT

SCC,
did you see that video of that officer taking that shithead off the bus? The officer did a fine job and I think he actually used tremendous restraint considering the active resister's actions. If you see the video the poster is aware of some police protocol/procedures that say that there is an order that CPD should wait for backup. (although a good idea not mandated, most of our interactions with citizens are one-on-one)

I loved this jagoff's little play-by-play, he had no idea what he was talking about while criticizing the responding officer.

Oh by the way the guy's name who took the video is: Spencer Thayer, he is a 29 year old, M/2 currently resides in Chicago he is part of the self proclaimed "chicago cop watch" which is like a bunch of suburbanite yuppie larva who don't have girlfriends and are seriously in need of a hobby.

O.T. The security problems that the new 009th district is encountering is ridiculous. Is this not a 6 week old 30 million dollar building? The only time everything worked properly in that new building was the day king Ritchie came by for the open house. It sure looks nice but the constant problems should not be happening in a brand new,state of the art,30 million dollar building. Of course it doesn't help when you have a completely useless district manager. Lawrence Ramos wasn't even around for the move. He came back to work a few weeks after the move and he really hasn't done shitt since.If any problem is brought to his attention it seems to go in one ear and right out the other. He really is about as useless as they come.

Citizens are usually afraid to offer assistance.

A few of their reasonings are:


1. What if the officer considers my approach to be threatening, even before I have a chance to state my intent to offer assistance?

2. What if my verbal offer of assistance inadvertently distracts the officer and unintentionally increases his or her potential peril?

3. What if my action, or attempted action, is taken as me attempting to assist the offender?

4. What if the offender in question chooses to 'make a move' on the officer at the same time I am either speaking to and/or moving towards the officer?

5. What if my offer to assist instigates the offender to increase his or her resistance?

6. What can I possibly do, being untrained, inexperienced and unprepared for the potential results of what I might have to do to assist the officer?

7. What do I do if the officer initially rejects my offer of assistance, but appears to need it as the situation develops?

8. Being untrained, inexperienced and unprepared, how can I know that anything I'd think of to do to help the officer wouldn't actually interfere and impede the officer in the performance of his or her duties, and, effectively, make things worse?

9. Being untrained, inexperienced and unprepared, what if my chosen means of assistance is not entirely lawful?

10. Since I, the citizen, have no authority and am not allowed to lawfully possess the tools the officer does, what can I realistically do to provide effective and lawful assistance?



These are just 10 of the more rational reasonings.


I'm sure others can provide at least this many irrational ones.


This is what we get when we allow the mentally and morally retarded to make our laws, interpret and adjudicate our laws, and make our public policies. (Legislative, Judicial and Executive branches of our governments)

As an African American female, I know that some African Americans are crooks, those comments were uncalled for and unnecssary especially since this conviction came days before Fast Eddie was sentenced to probation mostly because he didn't get caught doing violence and thefts that he has long been accused of doing and not getting caught. One more comment, as an African American female witnessing a white male being labeled with a sex offender tag just because he was a white male, who stood up for him and told eeryone who the real sex offender was - I bet if you ask him about African American females, he'll have a totally different opinion of them than the two who wrote those comments that Arenda might say she was discriminated against because she's an African American female. And yes, I have been accused of things just because I am black and at least one accuser tried to get me arrested and then found out it was someone else and it was not an arrestable offense but that is how some people's mind works - then we get called scum and trash and douche bags and no one would have belived my innocence, I would have been just another African American crook.
