Cozzi Appeal Denied

Bad news.

For decision, go to www.ca7.uscourts.gov In left column, click on "Opinions". Enter Case # 09-2648

UPDATE: Post moved up from 5:26 hours Friday.

CrimeFile has the entire opinion up on his website and a pretty good argument that Police Officers' Garrity Rights have just gone out the window.

Next time you have a prisoner/supposed victim at a hospital who is making a scene tell the hospital staff that he is their problem. You are there to make sure he doesn't escape or commit another crime. You're not there to teach him manners.

off topic..The family of slain Chicago police Officer Michael Bailey has moved out of their Park Manor neighborhood home less than two weeks after his fatal shooting outside the residence, according to relatives, neighbors and local officials.

The officer's widow, Pamela, and his son, Michael Jr., gave away items from their home in the 7400 block of South Evans Avenue before departing Thursday, according to several neighbors. The family then placed large padlocks on the front door and gate and boarded up all of the windows on the lower level of the two-story home.

As I've mentioned in other blogs, it's a crying shame that these rotten judges didn't overturn the conviction. When reading the appeal one does see what a rotten piece of scum JFLED is. The judges mention several times, how he got the ball rolling in this case and pushed to have Cozzi prosecuted, using his influence with the G. (my words, but clearly evident in the legal opinion.) God bless Cozzi, all we can do is hope he gets released early or some miracle occurs.

On another note this ruling puts every officer that cooperated in any way on any internal investigation at risk (administrative versus criminal). The States Attorney and now the Federal judiciary have made it clear that any statement given during an Administrative Process can be used during a Criminal Proceeding. Those "disclaimer statements" given during shooting investigation aren't worth spit. Hopefully, the FOP will get on the ball and find some other method to protect the guys and gals. (Hire a legal expert as a consultant, hopefully not Pleines). In the mean time be very careful.

Let the Supreme Court decide the issue over the derivative use of a compelled statement, as this seems clearly not yet settled as a matter of law. However, maybe this time kick the lawyer in the ass to make the proper arguments in the INITIAL brief, and not wait for the reply or oral brief to expand the argument. By then it is too late. You have to define the scope of the appeal up front.

Now is the time to do absolutely nothing except show up and collect a check on the first and the sixteenth. This superintendent hates his own police officers.

No movers, no parkers, no bus checks, no activity period. Just show up, answer the radio, and 19paul as much as you can.

Let this city go to... never mind, it is already hell. This superintendent would rather fight his own police officers than fight crime- he does not know how to do that.

It is also time to start a campaign to force him out. Get rid of him. Get your neighbors and friends to call City Hall and the media and tell them they have no confidence in this fancy pants poseur.

He was never a police officer and from what I hear, never really an active FBI agent. He was a bureaucrat who punched all the right tickets. He was an empty holster desk jockey.

He has to go and go soon.

God bless Bill Cozzi.

A soldier died last night. When he was young, his country asked him to go to the other side of the world and do his duty. He did it with distinction.

He came home and continued to serve the citizens of Chicago with that same distinction on this Department. Unlike the armchair soldiers, I don't think he told people about it. I saw a Ranger emblem in his locker and he explained what it was. He was a soldier once, and young.

Many of us thought he was the best Watch Commander we had ever had. After that conversation about the Rangers, I realized he was so much more. He was an honorable guy who did his job as best he could, and that was all he asked of us. Honor and duty.

I think he got sick over there from all that stuff we dropped in the jungle. He would never complain. He didn't complain about his duty. I will remember Lt. Sullivan for as long as I live and I will try to be more like him, but it is a lot to live up to.

A sin before all that is holy and a crying shame.

This is in no shape, form or fashion justice.

This is pure and simple retribution.

This is politically motivated excessive punishment for punishment's sake.

Franken-Fed was counting on this to send a message to the "out of control" blue shirts of CPD that he is "The Police Punisher" and worthy of being feared.

...Pussy!

You're more afraid of a Policeman than anything else you've encountered in your miserable, stunted life and it shows.

We ask again, whose child are you? What kind of human being are you? What kind of obviously fucked-up growing-up did you have that you can in good conscience profane our sacred profession and mock the sacrifices of hundreds by daring to wear vestments made holy by their blood sacrifice?

We do not take your repeated outrages lightly.

You are a vile stench in the nostrils of Lawmen nationwide and you have caused your more honorable federal peers to look aghast at what you're doing.

You are a soulless creature.

You're so quick to undeservingly wrap yourself in the cloak of law enforcement fraternity. Satan awaits your arrival to a specially prepared fire in Hell.

May the filthy lucre you're being paid, decay in the tomb with you.

Even the crows would refuse to pick at you... You're just that revolting.

It strains credulity that any human being embraces you and calls you son or even husband for that matter. Happy is the seed you never bore as you surely would give a child a scorpion if he came to you in need of anything.

God Bless Bill Cozzi in abundance for what you've inflicted on him.

We hope the day comes when this is made right at the expense of your freedom and all that you have.

May you soon suffer the same indignities Ofc. Cozzi is suffering.


You're no better than dude on the corner.

What happened to Bill Cozzi is wrong!!!

The public wants the police to do the things that NEED to be done.

Mr. Weis, look at the state of this City. This is the result of YOUR "leadership", YOUR decision to give a righteous man who accepted responsibility double the punishment while scum of the earth are released day after day after day at 26th St.

The damage YOU personally caused can not be easily reversed.

I HATE this Department and I HATE this city!!! I am trapped here but would leave in a heartbeat if I had the means.

This department is more politically corrupt than it has ever been. To brag about bringing FBI to straighten us out...the FBI should be PISSED! It is an unmitigated disaster! Chief Ernie Brown? Commander Carrothers? ARE YOU FUCKING KIDDING ME?!?!?!?!

Every day, I see another possible "Cozzi"...you guys better think about that! Bill is rotting in a Louisiana hell hole for the job he was expected to do, as long as no one sees REALITY!!!

It's all wrong, from start to finish, and it sucks.

So, the lessons:

1 Don't carry weapons you are not supposed to. Ever.

2 Don't strike anyone in restraints unless you are being assaulted or worse. Ever.

3 Don't believe that you will be able to explain or justify 1 or 2 in any way, shape, or manner.

Instructor in the academy told me years ago kid, act like you are always on tape and you'll be OK. Still applies years later.

A long time ago in Cicero I threw one single punch to a guy who was on my property threatening my brother and got year and a day in lockup because his jaw broke and his family knew the right people in the prosecutors office.

How is it that this cop gets OVER THREE YEARS??? for basically tapping someone with a paddle sap who just spit on him? I mean, if he wanted to hurt him or knock him out he could have. He wasn't even taking swings, just like little 'pushes'. I watched the video a minute ago and it didn't seem like a big deal especially considering he had already lost his job and got sentenced in court to probation.

This seems really unfair to this poor guy.

To Bill Cozzi I'm not a cop but I'm not a bad person and I know what it's like to do a bit of time and get out. The key is, don't let yourself get angry. Yes, you got a raw deal and you're entitled to be pissed off, but you must not let it burn you up inside or else it will consume all your thoughts. Start making plans now for your life after this chapter is closed. There are good things out there in the world and they're all waiting for you to enjoy once this is over with. Stay strong sir. Believe it or not, in time, you will look back on this and laugh. I promise. I've been there, done that before too and even though the road you got in front of you might seem long, it will go by in an instant and you will soon look back on it with chuckles, at how absurd it all was.

Read the post by SCC again with a link to Judge Kanne's written opinion at www.ca7.uscourts.gov

Also, Off. Cozzi was suspended without pay for two years. The prison is nearly 1,000 miles away from his loved ones.

Also note that our "leader" is a soulless alien and a sadistic coward. Occasionally, someone refers to this despised piece of shit as "J-Fed". Please don't omit the "L". It's J-FLED the "I've got your back" coward.

Finally, ignore any reference to "the wheelchair". The drunken mutt was able-bodied and NOT handicapped. Hospital security had sat him in the wheelchair for mobility purposes before Cozzi gave another unit a disregard and volunteered for the job at the E-R.

But for J-Fled, Cozzi would be working the streets tonight. Unlike J-Fled, BIll rans towards dangerous assignments which placed his fellow officers in harm's way unless and until a disregard was aired over the zone radio.

Well Ladies and Gentlemen, the Appeals Court has spoken and denied Bill Cozi appeal.

This whole chain of events can be laid at the feet of one person, our POS, cowardly, back stabbing, worthless waste of air Supt. of Police, Jody, fuckhead, Weis.

Sadly, there is nothing we can do for Bill but give him the support he will need to get through these very trying times. God will keep an eye on Bill to help him pull through this.

Now for our Jagoff Leader.

The time has come for this bill to be paid for, this situation that he and he alone is responcible for.

In several weeks, it will be Aug. 14th, this is the day that the ass wipes at 35th street and that delusional asshole on the 5th floor at City Hall have been dreading, the Air and Water show and Bud Biliken on the same day.

Well boys and girls, that is the time to make them paid dearly.

Can anyone else think of something that will make them shit their shorts more than some good old fashioned "Blue Flu".

I realize that it would take some intestinal fortitude to accomplish this act, but it is the only thing that leadership understands is blute, blont force trama, and after what they did, it would be only fitting we answer in some a manner.

Payback is a bitch people, and its that time.

Like the saying go's "Revenge is a dish best served cold".

Retired and glad of it.

Wow! Just read the opinion. The court used the most tortured logic possible to reach the result it apparently wanted to reach. In its path the court jettisoned, ignored or completely misapplied the holdings in Garrity, Kastigar and Hubbell. Kastigar provides that a compelled statement cannot not even be used derivatively to initiate a prosecution. This court goes on to say that even though they assume JFled read the statements of Cozzi before he made his "tip" to his former FBI buddies that could not be considered derivative use of Cozzi's statement. Why? Because JFled was not part of the prosecution team and the prosecutors did not see the statements even if JFled did. What BS. Cozzi's attorneys should file a petition for a writ of certiorari to the SCOTUS and it should take the case. Otherwise, this case stands for the proposition that law enforcement officers do NOT have the same rights under the 5th amendment to the US Constitution as every other citizen including those accused of the most heinous crimes.

Now is the time to do absolutely nothing except show up and collect a check on the first and the sixteenth.

But I've already been doing that. Does that make me proactive?

No movers, no parkers, no bus checks, no activity period. Just show up, answer the radio, and 19paul as much as you can.

I think a better response would be to do just the bare minimum. If you do absolutely nothing, that gives the department cause to fuck with you. But if you do just the bare minimum, like what is required to get a passing grade in your evaluation, they can't touch you.

Any Police Officer, any CHICAGO POLICE OFFICER working in ANY joint federal task force in ANY capacity during this era, IS CRAZY!

So what? You get nice hours and get to play with nice toys? You even get a nice plaque too?

The only reason local LEO's are allowed to participate is to serve as a buffer and cannon fodder in the event things go from sugar to shit.

The feebs will be inside, warm and toasty while the copper is ass-naked on the back porch during a blizzard... The feebs will open the door and hand the poor copper a bowl of ice cream and say "shivering keeps you warm, glad we could help" and close the door while pulling the shades.

They're never in as grave the danger as a Police Officer if and when they step in "it"... Or when "it" falls from the sky and lands on them... Whatever the "it" of the moment may be.

Anyone with discernment, common sense and vision can see this. All others have blinders on.

If you value your hide, leave these people alone and let them figure it all out.

"Just ask Swiss..."

Joe Airhart is another example... J-Fled & co. left him to die with a shit-head...

We're sure there are actually decent people who just happen to be feds... The organizational culture is cut-throat and ruthless toward out-siders i.e. the local LEO who is more or less considered a disposable necessary nuisance.

Do not be a proactive police officer. You will not be able to protect yourself when a false complaint comes down, or defend yourself when you take police action that falls in a gray area of the law, because your statements will be used against you.

No one should force you to circumvent your constitutional right not to incriminate yourself. This ruling is wrong. If this were Joey the Gangbanger being forced to incriminate himself, this ridiculous judge would see to it that Joey would be protected.

As for Jody the Mope superintendent, that which you give to others will eventually come back and fall upon you. A curse be on you for the remainder of your days for you were not interested in justice in Bill Cozzi's case, you were interested in politics and media perception.

Weis’s standing as a former FBI
agent and as the incoming head of the Chicago Police Department most likely weighed heavily in the FBI’s
decision to start an investigation.

Weis sent two emails to an agent in the FBI’s Chicago field office, asking whether the FBI had investigated Cozzi for civil rights violations and mentioning that the
former superintendent had unsuccessfully tried to fire
Cozzi and that Cozzi had “falsified his statement.” Weis also attached a copy of the video clip of the incident. The FBI had not yet started an investigation, but it
quickly did. In April 2008


government did not see fit to submit an affidavit from Weis explaining what he did or did not
read.

we think it fair to assume for purposes of this appeal that Weis read the protected statements, and we may even assume that he was motivated to email his colleagues at the FBI because of what the protected statements contained.

federal prosecutors have “the affirmative duty to prove that the evidence [they] propose[ ]
to use is derived from a legitimate source wholly independent
of the compelled testimony.”


Read:

Weis is considered " a legitimate source wholly independent of the compelled testimony.”

"Wholly independent??" WHOLLY SHIT!

2. He royally fucked up and couldn't be let back on the job. If you think the public is going to accept a cop beating a handcuffed man, POS, on tape you're living in an alternative reality.

3. A method of finding him with job related PTSD should have been found and he could have been medically retired or shifted to a non sworn position in the department. PTSD is very real and it doesn't just effect the military.

4. Didn't Weis claim not to have instigated the federal charges? If someone has a link and a quote please post it.

5. Cozzi's only chance of leaving prison soon would be a Presidential commutation or pardon. Unfortunately, Presidents seldom use that power because of negative publicity.

I'd love to see the President start commuting thousands of sentences for people in Federal prison for less serious stuff.

We simultaneously have too few and too many people in our various prison systems.

6. Weis needs to be replaced immediately by an experienced Urban law enforcement professional. I have nothing against Feds in general, but this department desperately needs someone with big city experience.

We all know the injustice perpetrated on our 'Brother' Bill.
It has been written about it here almost exclusively. (Thanks SCC)

But I would be remiss if I didn't identify Bill's biggest supporter and most recent partner, John Northen.(AKA "Northside")

We could ALL take a lesson from his tenacity. Once he sinks his teeth in he grips like a Rottweiler with a bite like a Bulldog. (Less drooling though)

John communicates with him regularly and shares his findings with us here on SCC.

While Bill certainly appreciates his camaraderie, I'm sure, we should likewise follow his lead and let Bill know were behind him as well.
We don't leave OUR dead or wounded behind.
Bill is hurting now, but still alive. Let him know that he's still in our hearts, thoughts and prayers.
He deserves all the prayers and support we can give. It could have been anyone of us.

WEAR COZZI BUTTONS: Let's show the City of Chicago and the Police Department, we still support our brother in blue even if he made a mistake. Who of us isn't without sin? God Bless Bill! I pray he makes it through this ordeal in a proper frame of mind. Don't forget to send your cards and letters. It will boost his morale! I feel so sorry for Cozzi. Special Thanks to J Nothern for calling Bill all the time and keeping the lines of communication up.

How do you sleep at night???

7/30/2010 06:39:00 PM

On a $310,000 pillow. I have 3 of them, they ARE rather nice. It fits my HUGE mellon, and it allows me to sleep peacefully and soundly while I fuck over him, you, this Department, and anything else Da Mayor lets me. Any other questions?

You obviously don't have kids in college or kids at all dick wad. Mind your business and continue to slack.


I got a masters degree and the marines paid for that. So kill yourself working for your college kids who will grow up knowing shit about the world cause you spoon fed them everything and less about you because you were always working, chump.

Bill:

I am sorry you are sitting there with scum while the scumbag who should have your cot is enjoying two salaries he does not deserve or earn.

Be well and stay positive.

TO this:
That asian girl is an intern. there seems to be an influx of youth hanging with the knowledgeable crime lab officers.

This is another in Daley's step towards privatizing our job. DO NOT LET ANYONE THAT IS NOT A SWORN LEO WORK WITH YOU. Let them learn from TV shows like CSI etc. Or take a test and go through the academy.

My question is who showed Jfu(& official OPS
reports when he wasn't an employee yet?
Is someone going to be disciplined for that?

What's next, opening our disciplinary files online?

Now is the time to do absolutely nothing except show up and collect a check on the first and the sixteenth…….."

Tell that to the families of the dead Police officers who died just this year. Tell that to the countless Police Officers who were victims crimes (Shot, Shot at, run over, beaten, stabbed). Tell that to your neighbor when some savage victimizes him. Tell that bull shit to your own family when they fall victim to one of these embolden fucking gang banging savages that your lazy ass helped to create. We are loosing the war one battle at a time because of pieces of shit like you. The bosses on this job don’t ride in the cars with you and drive past EVERYTHING with a blind eye, THAT’S JUST YOU!!!!!

May we stand proud having made a difference and say, I have fought the good fight, I have finished the race, I have kept the faith and made a better future for our children!

You had better think long and hard about Brady and others, sometimes the devil you know is better then the devil you don't know.

STFU you moron. I'm sick and tired of all the programs and services that come along with the Dems. So the devil I know, Chicago Dems, and the "Narcissist in Chief" need to take their entitlement bull and pay for it themselves.

They are the reason for the entitlement mentality in this country. They are the reason we fight a daily battle against these ghetto entitlement POS. They are the reason that charges were brought against Bill Cozzi.

I wished Bill the best when he appealed the decision, but I never really believed that he would prevail. I've written to Bill a couple of times, and I will send another card on to him. I know he's got to feel devastated, but he's just going to have to hunker down and find the inner strength to hang in there. Anyone who can write or send a card of encouragement is urged to do so.
Bill is tough...he'll weather this storm. With our help, I'm certain of it!

This does not appear to be a whole lot different than any employer giving an employee a choice of talking or walking.

The public wants the police to do the things that NEED to be done.
-----------------------------
The operative word being "need".

Did a guy making a minor ruckus who is chained to a wheelchair NEED to be struck about the head?

It's going to be hard to find a lot of public support for that kind of thing these days.

Just the way it is.

2. He royally fucked up and couldn't be let back on the job. If you think the public is going to accept a cop beating a handcuffed man, POS, on tape you're living in an alternative reality.

-------------------------
From the outside looking in, he needed to go, or the department has even less credibility than it does with the public at large. not that the level of credibility is not real high to begin with. being associated with a city that is run by what amounts to a criminal enterprise, does nothing for the reputation of CPD. Not that there is much the average cop can do about that.


It's too bad that some way was not found to put him out on medical. It's not a horrible solution to the problem of a cop who lost it and can't really be brought back.

The public has a short memory, and doesn't really give a damn about much of anything anymore. The thing is that he would have been forever crippled as a cop due to what he did, as lawyers have a very long memory. Every time he was associated with a case it would be brought up, some how, some way.

Many who have done much worse are working on the job today. Bad shootings, really bad beatings, car accidents etc. Cozzi just looked real bad on that video, the guy wasn't seriously hurt. Cozzi took a conviction in state court and a two year suspension. that was plenty of punishment. Fuck what the public thinks. He deserved to be back at work. Weis lost the soul of this department on that day.
