Cozzi on the Bracelets

A message from Bill:
  • Even though I have major problems, I will survive I want to thank all of you guys that are making the $10 donations to the families of our fallen brothers and sisters. John Northen told me about the sky blue wristbands that just started circulating throughout the department... I love you guys! I also hear that the CPD and CFD are showing much more UNITY during these stressful times..

    You don't know how precious your cards and letters are to me. John asked me this forced choice question: What makes my otherwise miserable existence down here a thousand miles away from home: Without a doubt, that's easy: MAIL CALL! I am so grateful to SCC and SLC for prominently posting my mailing address at the top of their blog sites. John also told me that at the FOP meeting Tuesday night, a full house unanimously believes my mailing address should appear in the December FOP Newsletter. With thanks to Mark Donahue and Greg Bella, I have been receiving the newsletters at Oakdale. Aside from that and your letters and barring national news, I have no idea what's happening in Chicago and the CPD. I can't receive subscriptions to the Tribune and Sun-Times because of the distance. Oakdale will not accept newspapers unless they come directly from the publishers.

    I have reached my alloted limit for paperback books. Please hold off until John informs you otherwise.

    I can't deny it. I'd like to be upbeat but I''m depressed, homesick, lonely and isolated. Basically, I keep to myself. I agree with John. I have no idea why the Bureau of Prisons sent me down to this miserable place rather than Oxford, Wisconsin. In order, I get the distinct impression that most of the other inmates do not like police officers, Northerners and certainly Chicagoans, Catholics and people of Italian ancestry. Again, your mail has made me stronger and I will survive.

    Please wear the wristbands and donate to the families of our murdered police officers.
    When you gather around your Thanksgiving feast with loved ones next Thursday, I will be thinking of your kindness.

    Have a Happy Thanksgiving. God bless you!

    Bill Cozzi

All money to the widows and children of officers slain in the line of duty as well as the catastrophically injured. This is the kind of guy that Bill is. He wants nothing for himself.

Only a sawbuck and you couldn't donate to a worthier cause. Aside fom the citizenry, I'd would love to see these blue "Cozzi bracelets" on the wrists of every Chicagoan, particurly ALL oor brothers and sisters and our brave firefighters.

I promise you this. With a display of SOLIDARITY, you will be amazed how strong you really are.

Do it for Bill. Do it for yourselves.

Please keep Bill in your thoughts and prayers every day. I just recieved a letter from him and as we sit around with our loved ones for dinner he gets to eat with child molesters. It is either that or gang members.

Please drop him a line to let him know that you care.

All my prayers to you Bill that God gives you comfort in these
difficult times for you and your family.
So often we go through life thinking, it can never happen to me. You never know if you're going to be in the right time or place, mistaken idenity, set up, or a mistake that you make, would lead you to be incarcerated.
We assume our judicial system runs like we were taught in grammer and high school, only find out later in years that it isn't that cut and dry. There are " plea bargains" or else. There are legal loop holes of double indemity. Yes you're innocent but hey let's try you again this way now. Frightening.

If many of us had our way, justice cries out that Daley and Weis should be dragged to the gallows kicking and screaming.

It's that time of the year which brings love and kindness, not cruelty to this poor officer.

When he worked 025, he was always there for us and would even pop clear for our jobs. That's what happened that night at the hospital. Another car was assigned and Cozzi volunteered for the job. With an unblemished record, he gives a few harmless pimp slaps to a hollering, spitting, disruptive drunk. The able-bodied moron then behaves and giggles, order is restored in the emergency room and Bill goes to prison to rot without visitors.

God bless bill cozzi.This is a decent man with a good heart and if these supervisors want to look for an example how to act,look at bill cozzi. To the supervisors who read this blog,you want to know why the troops do not respect you? 99 percent of supervisors on the police department today are a bunch of self centered,merit hacks who have never done a lick of police work .You guys always preach integrity and work ethic but some of you white shirts have numerous sustained cr numbers that would get a blue shirt fired. You supervisors complain on our activity but i would bet anything if you supervisors confronted a man with a gun you would pee in your pants and run the other way. Half of you supervisors would not even know how to process a felony arrest. As a lowly po here is how i see it. If you want to harp on us on our lack of activity or our lack of arrests lead by example and show us how it is done. Remember one thing. The blue shirts are the ones who make this department what it is. Not a bunch of triple merit,promoted way beyond their abilities supervisors. You need the blue shirts.We do not need you for anything. Free Bill cozzi. Remember officers. The 1 mission for everyday should be that every officer comes home safe and sound. These missions for these self serving bosses who do not have the balls to stand up to anybody.

He bought it at a swap meet, I was with him, does that make me a felon? So fucking what. He caught the beef and took probation. Bill Cozzi can come to my house for dinner any day.

I can imagine being so far away from home can be a bummer but Oxford was a nice place 30 years ago when it was a state institution.

Today it's rife with gang activity, obviously a lot of it goes back to the Chicago area. The feds may feel that your guy could be endangered if placed here.

On the flip side, why not Duluth or Rochester? That's where some of the federal "celebrity inmates" often land.
