Guilty Plea in Metra Cop Slaying

  • Jeremy Lloyd, 22, pleaded guilty to murder for acting as a lookout in Cook's slaying in September 2006. He also pleaded guilty to attempted murder for his involvement in a shootout with a Harvey cop earlier that same day.

    Cook was sitting in his squad car outside the 147th Street Metra station in Harvey late at night when he was shot in the back of the head at point-blank range. He was killed instantly, and his .357-caliber service weapon was stolen.

40 years and he cooperates against the gunman. We suppose it's necessary to get the other jagoff, but it doesn't make us feel much better.

Rest in peace Officer Cook.....

Glad to see the murderers are still being hunted.

Too bad the judge couldn't sentence him to... "rot in hell."

Perhaps 'THE' higher authority will see to that.

And until the 11th hour, this asshole thumbed his nose at the offer knowing that he still had the other case going. And he didn't give up his accomplice just to shave a few years off his sentence...he couldn't care less. The only reason he gave it up is because they had his "Mama" talk him into spilling the beans.

Please don't mistake his "cooperation" with remorse, oh gullible public. This piece of shit has no soul, as evidenced by killing a cop as part of a gang initiation.

Hopefully his stint in prison is filled with the most unspeakable acts of depravity, pain and torture...him on the receiving end, of course.

More like shouting out his crimes all day, every day, until the very walls go deaf. That, and endlessly braiding other men's hair and trading packages of noodles for packages of noodles.

Then shouting some more.

40 years of this.

Hey. Kids. Think before you do s__t.

All night on FOX Sports during football and the World Series, of all places, they are running adds for a new FOX police drama called "The Chicago Code" and displaying CPD uniforms and vehicles PROMINENTLY. The worst part is, its all about corrupt cops!

Coming to a TV screen near you in February.

We just can't win.

If I am not mistaken, Maywood PD lost a K9 (?) Officer in a similar shooting where the squad car was parked . No arrest as far as I know.

Well, the triggerman is going down, and 40 years isn't just a slap on the wrist. It's not the full measure of justice, but it's a lot better than nothing. And sometimes that's all you can get.

Here's a similar true crime case I read of. A phony preacher in Dallas hired a dumb, homely country girl as his secretary. Then his "handsome" sleaze stooge married the girl, and got her insured. On the way to New Orleans for the honeymoon, the car "broke down" on a deserted stretch of Interstate. They were standing next to the car when the preacher zoomed by - and the stooge shoved the girl into the road for a hit-and-run.

The Louisiana cops were on to this, but it was hard to prove. So the prosecutor cut a deal with the stooge (life, or maybe 30 years) for a confession and testimony against the preacher - and went for the death sentence on him.

The defense counsel tried to make an issue of this shameful deal with a confessed murderer. The prosecutor got up and said to the jury, "Yes, Ah made a deal. Ah made a deal with a sinnuh - to catch the Devil!" (pointing at the preacher)

He got his conviction and IIRC the death sentence.

Just A Civilian (who yearns for perfect justice and knows it's impossible)
