What Mafia?

Gee, who'd have even thought such a thing existed? And that they had tentacles reaching into government?
  • Illinois state Sen. James DeLeo (D-Chicago) -- who has made public statements questioning the existence of the Chicago mob -- was credited by former Gov. Rod Blagojevich's office with trying to help the widow of one of Chicago's most infamous slain mobsters.

    The Northwest Side lawmaker is listed in a secret hiring database the then-governor's aides kept as the political sponsor for Anne Spilotro, the widow of murdered mob associate Michael Spilotro.

    She's among 146 "recommended" job candidates linked to DeLeo by Blagojevich's office, though it isn't clear for what job.

DeLeo (D-How You Doin?) sure seems to have a lot of "friends" with questionable backgrounds. Of course, that could be said about many politicians in Chicago. The mayor's sister-in-law for one. And his golfing buddies. And more than a few of his political contributors.

To get anywhere in Shitcago ya gotta have "questionable" friends.

It's understood that if Daley lets you get in on some of his shady $$$$$ deals, when the shit hits the fan, ya gotta let him throw you under the bus and take all the heat for him. He'll have lotsa money for you and get you a job wit "dem guys over dere by the bank that my nephew is involved wit, when you get outta club fed.

Too bad Royko is gone he could write a book that they could make three sequels to.

Book One: From "Hamburgers" to Riches (the story of a crime family.

Oh my God! How about we all get on here and list all the mob people we know already working for the city. Start with the asphalt trade which is ALL mob. They even have that Ya-hoo that was selling stolen and fraudulent baseball memorabilia working there. Transportation is a who's who of mobsters idiot relatives that had no education or credentials to get a job anywhere else.

Anyone out here know if the rumor about street gang members out to kill 141 or 144 women as part of a gang initiation? Rumor was heavily floating on the westside last weekend with folks getting text messages early in the week.

Heard a variation at the desk in 21this week- a Woman called claiming she was told Hispanic Gang memebers were being required to kill 144 ? African American women in order to prove thier worth?

My friend works at the City Health Clinic at 18th & Ashland. They found a piece of paper attached to their door today stating something to the effect that on Oct 21st, many women in and around Pilsen will die.
No numbers were mentioned to my knowledge. The police were notified. The women working there are scared!

Back almost 30 years I had to chase after him for almost 2 miles to get him pulled over and wrote him a few movers for all the red lights, lanes use and speeding he did. It was my first case that disappeared in court, never to be seen or heard. Knew back then the arrogant SOB must be connected, and he was nobody then.

Within the last 10 years I had a couple of incidents involving the children/grandchildren of some of the old 26th Street Crew members.

Nothing major, just underage drinking or curfews. Although their children were cocky jagoffs, the actual members were nothing but gentlemen.

Still, Im sure they were responsible for more than one policeman's murder in their history-so fuck them anyways.

***************

This is one of those internet rumors that's being modified and re-circulated like crazy to fit local needs. 022 is getting barraged with this message saying that 150 women will be killed at every school in the district, and 022 has more schools than any district in the city.
Remember the rumor about the gang bangers driving with no headlights at night a few years ago? The one where if you flicked your lights on and off to warn them, you would get shot by them? Same thing, it's all garbage. Rumors spreading out of control thanks to the internet.

Special guest: liberal C, who wants the state of Illinois to fullfill a Blago promise to give six million of our tax dollars to build...a museum for broadcast communications!

Yeah, and liberal C says the governor and Cullerton are receptive.

The Chicago Outfit used to have a very heavy hand in the CPD. Not any more. Their men in City Hall and Headquarters have lef out. As far as Mr DeLeo, he is the real deal. A gentleman with a lot of friends in high places, Vegas, Hollywood, and what's left of the mob here. Last or the wheeler dealers from the city. Had Blago licking out of his hands. Blago was a DeLeo wanna be, and that goal was not attained, but is to result with Rob in an orange suit.

Back in the late sixties, DeLeo was a Police Cadet assigned to the
twelth district. Jimmy Fruin also worked there. The guy whose relative is John Gallagher's secratary down at the pension board. She's the one that we're putting through law school. Dave Kugler the pension board attorney?
Deleo's old law firm partner, along with Bob Cooley and John D'Arco Jr. Nice huh?

Wow - the Robert Cooley interview was fascinating. It sure fills in a lot of the gaps left by the book. Eddie Burke is still the Big Cat in charge if the henhouse. Richie is ultimately the one who will be named as the one responsible after this all blows up and they're already sizing up shortshanks for an orange jumpsuit.

Wasn't there some talk about the Finnegan/SOS crew hitting some house around Archer and Pulaski where the occupant was thisclose to Burke? Word is this guy made a call to "Car 2" and next thing you know the COPS are getting arrested. If Eddie is that connected he certainly might have set the whole thing in motion to discredit the cops and to cover his involvement.

Makes you wonder.

Last week I saw shortshanks on TV receiving an award from some bleeding heart liberal organziation for his support in giving convicted felons jobs on the city payroll.

He remarked that everyone deserves a second chance!

Does this mean Cozzi will get his job back when he gets out? I dont think so. Everyone gets a second, and third chance but coppers.
