Bye Rickey - Prison Awaits?

  • State Sen. Rickey Hendon, a flamboyant former West Side alderman known for his nickname "Hollywood" and his controversial mouth, abruptly quit Thursday.

    [...] The surprise announcement by the veteran lawmaker comes months after revelations that a federal grand jury issued subpoenas for records on dozens of state grants, some of which he sponsored. On Thursday, Hendon repeatedly said he was hanging up as a reporter tried to ask whether his decision to resign was related to the federal subpoenas.

    The subpoenas sought state agency records about dealings with more than 50 individuals and nearly 40 entities, according to copies of the August subpoenas served state agencies and obtained by the Tribune. Included are groups that won grants for after-school programs, job training and health programs, including several that were part of a 2008 Tribune investigation into Hendon's sponsorship of after-school grants.
Will he be the latest in a long line of "public servants" headed to the federal pokey? Got to keep up that 50% conviction rate somehow.

Heh Heh!

*In best Gomer Pyle imitation... SUURPRIIISE SURPRIISE SURPRISE!*

No WONDER the stuttering prick is incommunicado on a boat "somewhere" in the Caribbean Sea!

Watch all the runnin' dog rev'runs come down with amnesia!

"Rickey who? Who he is?"

Whoooo Chile! Somebody finna git it!

Fraud? Misappropriation of funds?

Possible door-opener/concurrent investigation by IRS?

Is the government going to go straight gangster and hit a lick on these fools and revoke their tax exempt status?

Who else is going to get dragged under the wheels when this investigation jumps the curb and plows into barbershop/nail salon/snack-shack?

*Yeah, gimme a fade, a pizza-puff an' a grape po-- SKREEEEEEEEEE - CLAANGG - KA-BLOOEY!*


Might a bunch of "self inflicteds" be found floating in the lagoons at Garfield and Douglas parks over the next few weeks?

...See how they run!

It's gonna get real fun and real funny...

Like watching 20 assholes in a shack over in Memphis-Town trying to jump out the one window in the raggedy-assed joint that didn't have bars on it when da Po-leece kicked the front and back doors off the hinges at the same time :)

Oh what fun! Days we'll never see again...

It'll do our poor old hearts quite some good to see some of these jokers marching in the "fuck the Police" parade, on the 10 o'clock news being perp walked into the MCC in orange jumpsuits with the cameras rolling and that famous look on their faces that says to the world "I think I just dookied on myself... REALLY HARD!"

Suurpriiise Surpriise Surprise! You rotten muthafuckahs you!

This shit is non stop in this city and state. This is one of the reasons why the pensions (in Illinois anyway) are now under attack. They (the pols and their pals in the media) spin it as if we are the ones stealing from the tax payers while they stole it for shit like this! I understand the no working because the gov't takes care of me shit bags voting for these assholes but anybody else, inexcusable! If I should have to travel out of state in my veh. I think I'll take a chance at getting in trouble for putting fake plates on my veh. because the embarrassment factor of being an Illinois resident is through the roof and emotionally and psychologically crippling. Hey wait a minute I think I just found a way out! They just made me a victim! I need a lawyer!

The feds only indict if there is a 110% chance of conviction. The state prosecutes everything else.

How come so many Aldercreatures faded away this year? Does it have anything to do with the the Blago trial coming up? Will a recently demoted Commander/relative be dragged in on the wire?

What other Department members will this trial touch? It will be an interesting few months.

Since Rickey was also a full time cook county employee and administrator and often was seen during the day at public and private events dealing with political issues, a questions beg itself. How about an audit of his time and attendance on his county job and cross reference that with his public appearances, let alone his time in Springfield. I would be willing to bet that he is the granddaddy of double dipping. But of course, he is a democrat and so is the new county board president.

Well, that's correct, ONLY with this added caveat.
It should have read, The feds only indict if there's a 110% chance of conviction.
The state prosecutes everything else, AFTER Felony Revue throws out 110% of the rest of the cases.

Just setting the record straight.
Stay safe out there my brothers.

Rickey is trying to get some of the money from the 3 pension funds that he put into from having 3 government jobs over the years. He served for 18 years in the state senate. Before running for the state senate, Hendon was alderthief of the 27th ward. Prior to that, he was Secretary and Treasurer for the Cook County Forest Preserve.

Hey you can't really blame it on the voters in some of these areas for electing these scumbags into office. Most of these areas only have scumbags running for office. There are no decent people there to run.

Regarding the recent Civil suit of the 79 year old ex-con preacher (Walden v City of Chicago). The City and the deceased Officers involved were represented by the the law firm of Andrew Hale and Associates. The defense presented by Andy Hale and Avi Kamionski resulted in the Federal Jury finding in the City's favor, denying Walden's claim that he was tortured by Chicago Police Officers investigating a Rape 60 years ago.
Additionally this firm represented 2 P.O.s and 4 Detectives in an unlawful incarceration case from 1982 (Jerry Miller v Chicago). The subject had served 26 years in the Penitentiary and upon his release DNA evidence cleared him of the crime. His conviction was the result of false eyewitness identification and Hale and Kamionski proved this in their motion for Summary Judgement before Judge Suzanne Conlon. Judge Conlon found for the Officers and the case against the Officers was dismissed.
Andy Hale's practice is dedicated to representing Police Officers wrongfully accused. I am one of those Officers and think they deserve some recognition. Check out their website:
A very grateful Retired Detective

I second what the retire Detective said about Andrew Hale and Associates. They are a policemans best friend. They are like pitbulls and will not back down. They have a huge sucess rate when defending us from these BS lawsuits. The days of the CC's office just settling out of court are over. I wish they represented those guys from 025 gangs a few years ago from that BS lawsuit. That too would have been a winner.
