Smoke

  • Police in Chicago have made an arrest in the burglary that Sgt. Alan Haymaker was responding to when he crashed on Lake Shore Drive and was killed early Monday, but prosecutors don't plan to charge the man in Haymaker's death.
  • Police Supt. Jody Weis had said earlier this week that prosecutors might charge anyone involved in Monday's burglary of a cellphone company on North Clark Street with felony murder, based on the legal theory that the commission of the burglary led to the death of Haymaker, 56, a third-generation Chicago cop who worked out of the Town Hall district on the city’s North Side.

    But Simonton said today: “There is not sufficient legal basis to charge the offender . . . . . . in connection with the death of Sgt. Haymaker. While we certainly understand the pain and anguish felt by the Chicago Police Department in the wake of this tragedy, we don’t have the evidence that would be required to meet the burden of proof to sustain a felony murder charge.”

No shit. We saw that one coming a mile away. So did anyone with half a brain, which leaves out most of the media who are hanging on J-Fed's blatherings like he had any experience in actually charging, prosecuting and testifying at a criminal case.

Smoke and mirrors all the way by J-Fed to appease those on the CPD.

We all knew it was bunk and that he was attempting to buy favor with what he thought were ignorant, uneducated cops.

Proven wrong again!

Don't underestimate the members of the CPD, Mr. Jody Weis.

But Jody sure as hell knew how NOT to make a decision when it came to rescuing Joe Airhart.

And Jody sure as hell knew how to make phone calls to circumvent normal protocol to jam it up Bill Cozzi's ass.

Anyone that does anything proactive for this department while this cocksucker's here needs their head examined. Get on the boat already, you holdouts that still think this job, Weis and the Daley-controlled City is legit.

Give J-Fed a break, he was only 'parrot-ing' what he heard about the murder charge under the Accountability' portion of ILCS.
In reality, any kid coming out of the academy has more knowledge of Illinois law than the Supt.
And any copper that ever had a dealing with Felony Revue knew better than to really expect murder charges.

Nothing but a thinly veiled attempt to try and score points with the men and women of this great department. Well, SuperNintendo Weis, your ability to ever gain respectability with us evaporated the minute, when like the spineless cowardly weasel that you are, you picked up the phone and ruined the life of a good man and his family. If you really want to do the right thing, you should round up a couple of your useless staff members, go down to City Hall, and slap the cuffs on the micro-managing piece of shit that ordered those salt trucks off of LSD. Since you would never have the balls to do something like that, here's another suggestion. Just keep your dumb, motherfucking mouth shut. Every time you open it you embarrass the department. You embarrass me. You embarrass yourself.

OT - Ex-cop In Bar Beating Fails Drug Test, Authorities Say

February 26, 2010 8:52 PM

A former Chicago police officer convicted of a bar beating seen around the world violated his probation by failing a drug test last month, Cook County prosecutors alleged today.

Anthony Abbate, 41, tested positive last month for opiates, prosecutors said. Circuit Judge Arthur Hill Jr. set a hearing on the allegations for March 12. Prosecutors could seek to have him imprisoned for up to five years if the judge finds he violated his probation.

(((((((((((((((((((((((((( * ))))))))))))))))))))))))))


I guess 'Bonehead' Abbate wanted to give the media an opportunity to run the bartender beating video another hundred times or so!

9:51 PM (CAUSATION)

I see only two possibilities or a combination thereof:

An unsalted icy surface and/or worn tires. Both are obvious. The vehicle indisputably lost traction with the roadway. A "perfect storm", if you will.

1st Deputy Supt. James Jackson already noted the icy surface. Can anyone disprove that the lakefront temperature was between 31 and 33 degrees--ideal for treacherous black ice. A witness said (s)he saw the squad car "skidding".

As expected, J-Fed's "outrageous" attempt to deflect the blame on the burglars with the felony murder rule was preposterous from the git-go. No wonder why he's called "the WEISel" (weasel).

COVER-UP! Big-time!

LITIGATION v. City is on the horizon. Under the circumstances, Class 2 felony "Reckless Homicide" is also plausible with unbiased prosecutors.

Competent legal counsel could clearly affix responsibility for the sergeant's death. Justice cries out that someone must pay for the needless death of Sgt. Haymaker.

May God give the Haymaker family the strength to endure their most tragic loss. Rest in peace, Sarge.

And in addition to being charged by Du Page County S/A, you all know our juries would have bagged this jagg off with a guilty verdict. His narrow ass would be in Stateville for 10 years anyhow. Oh well, that is the difference between those of us in Du Page who demand low crime and the shitty where crooked and incompetent politicians like Alvarez and Daley seem to thrive.

I parked near the corner of Marine Drive and Bittersweet Place. With a calibrated thermometer, I proceeded across the southbound exit ramp to to the tree with the scarred bark and flowers placed below.

Upon stabilization under overcast skies, the thermometer recorded. 32 degrees Farenheit. Snow partially covered the grass. There was no slush to be found. I noted what appeared to be remnants of rock salt with no discernible presence of icing in the curb lane.

Returning to my car on Bittersweet Pl., I nearly slipped and fell on a patch of ice.

Skeptical, WEISel Boy?

Have an unbiased third party empirically replicate the conditions on last Monday at 5:06 AM.

Using your own weasely words, to do otherwise would be "outrageous" and "fundamentally wrong".

From personal experience, I would not put anything beyond the chicanery of the City of Chicago. They can be diabolical. What's to prevent tampering with the totaled CPD squad car?

I suppose just about anything is possible. About 20 years ago, I attended the funeral of a friend who was in his mid 20s and the picture of good health.

He ran a car off the road one night and hit a tree at 50 some MPH.

Autopsy revealed he had a heart attack that led to the accident.

Eventually the investigation may give some answers. Or not.

I just phoned Felony Review (773.869.3020) as a citizen of Chicago and Cook County.

I identified myself and spoke with a female who identified herself as "Edie". She refused to give me her last name.

I asked that she convey to Cook Co. State's Attorney Anita Alvarez the compelling need to convene a grand jury hearing into the death of Sgt. Al Haymaker as soon as possible. I also cited the content of this specific thread on Second City Cop.

Hmmmm...

Just another log for the fire...

We wonder just how many "revisions" to the traffic crash report were "suggested" (interpret as "ordered") by our illustrious command/exempt echelon?

We wonder if a discrete inquiry to IDOT at some point in time would reveal missing/out of sequence bar code/sku numbers?

Surely our command/exempt echelon would not EVER attempt to exert undue "influence" over a field officer's preliminary investigation and subsequent case reporting in their zeal to protect their master and chosen members of his inner circle?

We would surely hope that the reporting officer has been in no way shape or form been compromised or overtly/covertly "influenced."

If there was undue "influence" exerted by the command/exempt echelon then perhaps they wouldn't mind climbing the 13 stairs constructed by j-fed's own words if evidence is found that they actively participated in the furtherance of a criminal act.

We put absolutely NOTHING past these callous, cruel, evil and vindictive Police impersonators.
