Not Guilty

Once again, a Cook County jury stuns and amazes onlookers:
  • A not guilty verdict on all counts!
    Every officer in that courtroom was blown away. Every States Attorney was blown away. The pro- defense judge was blown away when she read the verdict.
    The cop shooter admits to buying the gun off the street for 100dollars, shooting the gun numerous times, impeached himself countless times and was found not guilty. He goes free by a cook county jury. In my 19 years on this job I have never seen anything like this. He is a self admitted GD who will be free tonight. This is insanity.
We are flabbergasted.

It's not unbelievable to me, Cook County Juries are the ones who were not able to get out of jury duty. They could give a fuck, if someone is guilty or innocent. Just because this mutt is guilty as sin, and everyone is stunned by the verdict, doesn't mean anything. The fact remains that a MUTT is free to go, he will do it again that's a give me. Nothing will change until the public will once again as they did in the late 20's and 30's. They will get so fed up with crime, that they will demand that Law Enforcement take control, and use any means necessary to do it!!!!

Not Guilty?

OK...

The people of Chicago (and Cook County) have spoken loudly and clearly to The Police with this verdict...

Just a straight up mockery of the professionalism, courage and steadfastness of The Policeman.

How many more hints and clues will it take to show that this city is lost?

The people embrace madness and chaos.

The Police are the enemy... How many times are they going to have to tell you?

Adjust and govern yourselves accordingly.

Will all you hard chargers FINALLY open your fucking eyes and take note of the message here?

All the effort you put into trying to be the "real police" doesn't mean a fucking thing to the ignorant majority of society that has been brainwashed by the liberal/socialist agenda.

A CONVICTED FELON GANG MEMBER IS GIVEN MORE CONSIDERATION AND THOUGHT MORE CREDIBLE THAN YOU, AN OFFICER OF THE LAW, WHO HAS TAKEN AN OATH TO SERVE AND PROTECT THE VERY SAME PEOPLE WHO SET AN ATTEMPTED KILLER OF A POLICE OFFICER FREE.

A motherfucker that hasn't contributed a God Damned thing to society while bleeding it dry via endless entitlements is better than you, officer.

Keep giving up time away from your wife, kids, family and friends, missing parties, graduations, weddings and various other functions because you allow the department to change your hours and deny your days off with nary an objection.

Meanwhile, every fucking savage mills about listlessly, ignoring the multiple kids s/he bore and couldn't care less about. For those of you who have never worked in a ghetto, the inhabitants of same seldom miss a party. They usually arrive with top-shelf liquor, to boot.

Primary, let alone secondary employment is a foreign concept to these people - yet they never seem to be without the luxuries that you and I will never have. Meanwhile, you will live check-to-check and hustle for extra work because you have the foresight to invest for your family's future and live within your means.

YOU are the chump that goes out every day and gives 110% to the animals that comprise a majority of this city while the last bastions of legitimate taxpayers/city employees and their families are left to fend for themselves.

OUR FAMILIES and neighborhoods are basically ignored while these cocksuckers that wouldn't bat an eye if we were killed get the majority of police (and other) resources because they refuse to behave and raise themselves.

Think about all this when your supervisors announce in roll call that Stupidintendent McStake wants more activity to satisfy the "CompStat"/"Broken Windows" approach to policing. Keep giving your all while you're simultaneously vilified for doing what it takes to protect an ignorant and unappreciative public from themselves and those they champion.

FIGURE IT OUT, PEOPLE...take care of yourself, your family, your friends, your neighbors, and your co-workers. LET THE REST OF IT BURN. However involved, those that make enemies of the police had better learn to make friends with the criminals.

Someone asked what were the facts of the case?
They scream Search Warrant, no response, they force entry. They find a locked door- they attempt to kick it open then they both get shot through the door by the GD coward who has a boatload of CRACK in his bedroom. OH Yeah, and they shot back like sixty times and somehow the Gods of Roseland shielded him. I wish I heard about court earlier because I would have been there. UNREAL! I feel sick.

It is finally happening after 60 plus years of liberal, progressive excuse making for the criminal element, the jury pool has been completely tainted. Now, due to the media's publicity campaigns against the police and their promoting the propaganda put out by the revs and pinhead professors, average jurors believe that convicted felons are more credible than sworn police officers. The law and common sense have been turned on their heads. Suspicion is reserved for the testimony of police officers only. A GD and his family are believed even though they are caught in numerous lies and impeached during their testimony. As someone who has tried cases involving the police, I have observed the slow but steady erosion of respect for the law and law enforcement which is brought on by the continuous daily liberal drumbeat that the police are the problem not the criminals. The cant is taken up by the liberal professors who inculcate those biases in their students. The idea that police are incredible is upheld by liberal judges who exclude evidence and testimony in police trials solely on their own prejudice against the officers. In this case it is my understanding that the defendant's membership in GD was not allowed to be mentioned.
It would seem that the easy way out would be for the police to say forget it and not do the job they are sworn to do. However, coming from a police family and having been involved in law enforcement in one capacity or another for over forty years, I know the type of individuals who become police officers and why they do it. It's certainly not for the money or glamor and it is no longer for the respect. It is because the person drawn to be a police officer truly believes in the right of the people to life, liberty and the pursuit of happiness without interference by the criminal element. It is a sense of fairness and honor that draws people into the thin blue line. The idea that citizens have to fear for their lives and property due to a group of people who reject the laws and mores of society is abhorrent to those who would be police officers. It is inconceivable to those who are sworn to serve that a city can become captive to people who have no respect for themselves, their fellow man or the laws that govern us all.
So, despite the obstacles placed in their way by foolish people who live in one ivory tower or another, the majority of the thin blue line will soldier on and do their job to protect the vulnerable from the criminal beasts. They will do it because it is in their natures to do the right thing.
And for that, as a private citizen, I am very grateful.

I'm not sure if this exists in Cook County; I doubt it.

A judge may, in some jurisdictions and in some types of cases set aside a jury verdict (called JNOV in most jurisdictions).

While the standards may vary, JNOV usually arises when the judge finds that the jury has ruled against the weight of the evidence, i.e. that no reasonable jury could have ruled in that favor appropriately looking at the evidence.

This is different than a mistrial because in a JNOV a judge may actually enter a new verdict, not merely dismiss the proceedings.

SCC, this isn't going to be popular (if anyone even notices) but I have to say the same thing about this that I said about Casey Anthony: we have juries and a presumption of innocence for a reason, and one reason is that they insulate the justice system from the passion of people who are rightly furious that someone has been taken from them.

Before I start howling for blood over this case, I'd like to know why it's so outrageous. Several commenters here say they were in the courtroom; surely one or more of them could write up a more detailed account of how the trial proceeded and what the evidence was. I know you would post it. Then people like me would have a better idea what's going on.

Maybe I'm going out on a limb here, and not being an attorney puts me at a considerable disadvantage. I also admit to not being in attendance during the trial and have only limited information posted by SCC to go on. But I was under the impression that the judge has the lattitude and the responsiblity to nullify the finding of a jury if he/she determines that the verdict was not reached properly as a matter of law, but rather some other factor outside of the facts of the trial, i.e., the jury harbored an obvious dislike of the victim (the wounded police officers, the Chicago Police Department), or they were obviously intimidated by the presence of the GD's, or in some other way the verdict was reached by the jury based on factors not germaine to the trial. I think they call it a "directed verdict" and it supercedes/ignores the finding of a tainted jury. How about one of our juris doctor members taking a stab at this? I was just wondering . . .

Solid, hard-working people from decent neighborhoods are the ones who take themselves out of the jury selection process by telling judges in open court that there is no way they can be fair in a particular case. If that happens enough during a jury selection, you eventually will end up with 12 lumps of shit in the jury box.

That's why you get verdicts like this one. 20 years ago, people actually wanted to serve. Today? Forget it.

Why this verdict? First, police are lambasted eveyday in the papers, radio and TV. Every little thing a cop does wrong is front page news. Second, the police dept. does nothing about this bad media light. Oh, the FOP is now using Camden but he only shows up at a police shooting and at least tells the truth. My question is this. Don't we have a News Affairs unit? What are they doing other than cutting and pasting news blurbs on their page in ICLEAR? We need a Publis Affairs unit, one that gets out the truth about police work, tells the true facts of an incident, and broadens the public image of a professional and hard working police force. Every time a benefit is thrown for someone needy it should be in the press. Good arrests and solid police investigations should be front page. Stories about personal achievements by cops should be a daily press release. We do nothing of the sort mentioned above and we wonder why a jury won't trust or believe what a cop says? Blame the top. That's where it starts.

This is a perfect example of why the so-stupid Cops should just answer their calls, and concentrate on the 1st and the 16th. Forget about joining all these rambo units that are just bosses and politicians trying to squeeze more work out of the young simplistic newbee Cops by giving them a fancy title. They can't see thru it. Just take care of one another, and respond when you have to. Don't get sued or fired. Let the walls come crumbling down until the City pays YOU a good raise for doing your job, and the Media, Reverends, and Liberals are in fear for their lives. Let em stew in their own vomit. Then make them pay BIG, with the money they now freely hand out in entitlements to every street-dog, for nothing but trying to buy a vote. Force em to give it to YOU, in the form of a good, fair raise, instead. Stick together, NO MORE Aggressive Police Work. Wise Up, CPD. You're being used as Tools of your Socialist Leaders who loathe you, despite what they sometimes say. You're being screwed while they throw Tax-Dollars at Deadbeats, via Entitlement programs, to buy their Votes.

This is stirring terrible memories of when Kevin Dean was found Not Guilty of murdering Officer James Camp (021). The jury actually found Dean guilty of disarming Camp, but they somehow concluded the gun may have accidentally discharged. The prick defense lawyer argued Camp shot himself in the face. Still can't get that terribly unjust verdict out of my head.

My thoughts are with these officers during this hard time. The sad fact is that once it's in a jury's hands...the bad guy sometimes gets away with it.

This is a phenomenon known as "jury nullification." The jury votes to acquit even in the face of overwhelming evidence to the contrary, often along racial lines. The most famous of all instances of jury nullification is, of course, the acquittal of O.J. Simpson.

Mining and police work most dangerous U.S. jobs

Molly O'Toole

Reuters

10:07 AM CDT, August 26, 2011



WASHINGTON (Reuters) - Disasters at a U.S. coal mine and aboard an oil rig operated by British Petroleum in the Gulf of Mexico again made mining one of the most dangerous jobs in 2010, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics.

In private mining, fatal work injuries rose 74 percent to 172 in 2010 from 99 a year earlier, the agency's figures showed.

Fatality rates for mining rose to 19.9 in 2010 from 12.4 in 2009 per 100,000 full-time equivalent workers.

The Deepwater Horizon oil rig off the Gulf coast, licensed to British Petroleum, exploded and killed 11 workers last April, causing the largest accidental oil spill into an ocean in history.

Also last April, an explosion at the Upper Big Branch coal Mine in West Virginia owned by Massey Energy Co killed 29 miners.

The police profession was not far behind mining as a dangerous occupation, with the number of fatalities increasing by 40 percent to 134 last year from 96 in 2009.

And if a Policeman even looks at one of these shitbirds sideways, a Cook County jury made up of Chicago's "fine" citizenry will make doubly sure The Policeman is very loudly and publicly lynched and left to twist in the wind while dangling from the hanging tree.

Rahm, G-mac, Alvarez and Rosenzweig will roll around on the ground under The Policeman's swaying corpse duking it out over who gets credit for slapping the horse on his ass...

Unlike the Saddam Hussein neck jerk, The Policeman will be accorded no such journalistic "decency" as the anal-whore local media will not only joyously repeat it to the point of nausea but also ensure it goes viral in their never-ending "campaign" for the hearts and minds of the public...

Heh... We made a funny.
Well... Not...

We're still waiting for these grandiose "plans" 9.5 & "Joisey" have in mind for CPD being able to effectively bring about some semblance of safety in this city.

They don't have a plan... they're just playing out the string and hoping nothing bad happens here. If it does, then the "Hollow Dude" will call in the federales to save the day... No need for CPD will be proven and carte blanche will be given to flat out destroy CPD and reboot it to whatever the wet dream of the moment is.

The back of the bus political kabuki theater/3-card monte, vogue show, wig snatch & fish-frying extravaganza keeps rolling and nobody is at the wheel...

Rearrange the deck chairs, shuffle the very short deck, which shell is the pea under, reach into the hat to pull out a rabbit only to produce a handful of congealed, fermenting shit...

Rham & G-mac will insist it's a rabbit in spite of what your eyes and nose tell you.

And people just don't get why Coppers are in deep "fuckit" mode.

Chicago Policing should be plain as a naked hotdog nowadays...

No peppers, no relish, no extras, no trimmings, no fries and a cup of tap water to wash it down and no napkin...

"HEY! You guys used ta give us all the extras for years!"

Well... Since everybody seems to be in a cutting back kind of mood nowadays? Ya still get a hotdog and a courteous smile from your blue suited server.

Respond. Report. Arrest on signed complaints only and watch each others backs since we're the only ones who give a damn whether we make it home or not.

Some say, "Don't be that way, we need you."

Sorry... It's plain to see this "silent majority" jazz isn't working in Chicago. Especially when you repeatedly empower the same people from the same political cabal.

I get the anger and frustration, but it sure is hard to tell people how cops deserve their pensions and pay when half of the comments on here are about not doing any work and how the citizens are on their own. Think about that when you are nothing about a 2% raise and fighting for your pension.
-----------------------------
I think most people understand the venting. It is hard for police to accept the verdict, for obvious reasons.

This kind of crap happens. Who knows whether the jury was intimidated, or just hates cops, or was confused by the evidence, or had a bad day, or if it was just not a good case to begin with, or 100 other reasons it might have gone down this way. Sometimes a jury just does not like the state's attorney or really likes the defense attorney.

Guilty go free now and then and sometimes the innocent get put away. It just happens.

Not guilty verdicts?Punitive damages? The media, politicians and general public (for the most part) hate us?
Why are we doing pro active police work in this cesspool? I'm a supervisor with 25 yrs on and cannot understand putting our lives at risk for the segment of the population that hates us. I work in a heavily populated "city worker" district and will go above and beyond for them and of course my fellow Police Officers. Other than that, I could care less. All I ask of the troops is handle your jobs and BACK EACH OTHER UP! If a fellow Officer calls for help, drop everything and haul your ass over to help out. If an Officer with 30 yrs on doesn't feel like jumping out and chasing a thug who just broke and ran for unknown reasons, I DON'T CARE! If that same Officer doesn't show up when a fellow Officer needs help, I have a major problem with that.
I know some will shoot back at me for my opinion but I don't want ANY Officers losing their lives or their jobs or thousands of dollars out of their pockets for the scumbags that would rather see us dead. I'm aware there are many, many people who are on our side and I really appreciate them and those that post supportive comments on this blog. But there's a huge majority that hates us, and I can't see wasting our time to give them any service.
Before anyone wants to bash me thinking I'm Monday morning quarterbacking the Officers from this search warrant, I AM NOT! I personally know several of these Officers and they are phenomenal Police Officers. I just wish more Officers could see that the city will hang you out to dry in a minute.
Sorry for the rant but I hope everyone sees the point I'm trying to make. The deck is stacked against us these days, so, please look out for each other and BACK EACH OTHER UP!

This tactic (jury trial)works for the shitheads more than you/we think and their attorneys know it.

Sore subject of course for all of us and yes its tough to go on and continue to execute like the job demands. We just have to I guess.

However those that choose to constantly "flirt" with disaster by executing search warrants and not using SWAT or even putting their hands on dude excessively or whatever P/O's do to get the "stats" are more succeptible to outcomes like this...

Listen up slick...

You don't even come CLOSE to "getting it."

Just what the hell do you mean by "...it sure is hard to tell people that cops deserve their pension and pay when half the comments on here are about not doing any work and how the citizens are on their own."

You're advocating taking from Policemen just because they have the gall to offend your tender sensibilities by being fed up with YOUR COLLECTIVE FAILURE to exercise, safeguard and protect the ideals of representative governance as part of YOUR DUTY as a citizen?

You've ceeded all control to a legacy criminal-political cabal and good men in the arena can't even depend on you and yours to help put murderous dogs away?

Are you sure you want to engage in a war of words about who deserves what?

Had you and others of your ilk had truly played a part instead of allowing yourselves to be brainwashed into believing The Police are the enemy, it is doubful this post would even be up and the local tree of democracy would not have borne ugly assed fruit like this piss-poor jury verdict on an attempt murder of TWO Chicago Police Offcers.

And another thing, you blindly delusional twit... In case you haven't been paying attention over the last 10 years, you are VERY MUCH on your own in this town and not by The Policeman's hand either.

The Police didn't break it... You and yours did.

Hell yes we're pissed!

We honor our oath... Those Stars in that display case don't lie.

Our torn up bodies and injured souls don't lie either.

You hide under your bed and shit-talk people in the arena for daring to feel as if the public has turned their backs on us?

How the hell would YOU feel if an ideal you've sacrificed half a lifetime for has been turned into an utter mockery?

You. Know. Nothing.

Other than what the legacy criminal-political media cabal spoon feeds you...

Don't you ever dare presume to shit-talk a Policeman.

If it makes you feel better... Yes, this city will burn because the people YOU'VE empowered are playing games with your's and everyone else's safety out of politics and spite.

That should offend your tender sensibilities more than anything but you in your willfully misguided outrage will continue to damn The Police for something YOU co-signed on.

Are you going to continue blaming The Police? Or are you going to finally stand up actually perform your duty as citizens? If it's change for the better, The Police cannot do it alone.

We would say "pick a side" but it seems the choice of the public is crystal clear.

The Police are the enemy... We will govern ourselves accordingly.

I think one of the comments was right in that this was the Second or even Third String A.S.A.s on this case that probably let too many gangbanger and gangbanger relatives on that jury.

NOW WHAT TO DO:

FOP should call everyone involved on the CPD side together for lunch on Sunday or breakfast Monday morning latest. Then early afternoon on Monday march everyone into the U.S. Attorney's office on Dearborn Street. Bring the case documents with them and politely but vey firmly demand that this case be prosecuted federally.

If possible, and why not, have a warrant issued immediately before this (fill in the blank) can get organized and flee and we have to go looking far and wide for him.

Fuck the poverty pimps and all the other so called community leaders and the community itself. I have been watching the garbage in Englewood for example since 1970 and nothing has changed one damn bit. When these "mothers" are on the news crying that their babies were good kids it just makes me laugh. What a joke. Just go through the motions and collect your check, retire and get the hell out of Shitcago like all smart people do. You will never make a difference in a community that has its roots in collective neighborhood crime where most people are involved in it at some level and thinks it honorable not to snitch on thugs.

The average jury pool consists of middle-age/white suburbanites. I see it everyday. How? Because that's where I work. Juries are unpredictable, as messed up as it is. Unless the state polled the jury (which they have the right to do), no one will ever know why they returned a verdict of "not guilty". And to the individual to asked about a directed verdict. Whichever side is asking for it, must do so after presenting their case and before it goes to the jury. Rarely is it granted.

Why not a not guilty? They probably figured that since Daley and his family can get away with murder on the streets of Chicago, so should their own.

When Vanecko is tried for killing a man in a bar brawl, then there will be more room to complain.Until then, we live in the system that Daley created. No justice. Take the law into you own hands.

No fix, no liberal conspiracy. The following quote is from a book about Baltimore written in the 80s(?). Many more relevant observations.

"Juries do not like to argue. They do not like to think. They do not like to sit for hours at a time, wading through evidence and testimony and lawyers’ arguments. And in a homicide detective’s view, a criminal jury resists its obligation to judge another human being. It’s an ugly, painful business, after all, this process of labeling people murderers and criminals. Juries want to go home, to escape, to sleep it off. Our legal system prohibits a guilty verdict when there is reasonable doubt about a defendant’s culpability, but in truth, juries want to doubt, and in the stress of the jury room, all doubts become reasonable justification for acquittal."

Great attitude. So the cops should just give up? Should teachers in these communities give up too? I would like to think that most cops took the job to help people and try to make a difference. Believe it or not, there are a few decent people left in these communities who deserve protection. Just like the kids who, despite growing up around this nonsense, want and deserve to get an education and get out of there. We have jobs to do and we need to do them, despite the odds against us.

When an officer is shot, it is the JOB of the Cheif, the Mayor and/or the Governor to make it to the trial and show, that the community they represent, are behind the police when something like this occurs.
Mayor 4 fingers , you should have been there. Sup. McCarthy, your drunkin ass should also have been there, instead of at Pfather Pflamers parish empowering these pukes. Mayor and Sup. , you are a disgrace.
In reference to do nothing, I am not for doing nothing, you are a police officer and you are getting paid, so do your job, answer your calls. Thats all. Screw the shit that makes the bosses look good.
And please, practice your craft. Go to the range and practice, if not for you then for your loved ones. Way too many shitheads getting away because 50 rds are fired and no bad guys hit.

"I get the anger and frustration..."

Now you want us to play nice and let bygones be bygones, eh?

"You're Cops! We don't pay you to get angry about the things that piss off normal people... You're supposed to be constantly maligned and treated like second class citizens! Who are we going to heap disdain and disrespect on if you guys forget your place and don't act all humble and servant-like?"

PEOPLE DON'T BELIEVE THE POLICE!!

------------------------------

And ranting about it will not change that problem. Some of that mistrust is well earned and some of it not. But fixing the problem is a non-trivial exercise.

-------------------------
those who scrutinize policemen over what is legal and routine by the rules police work.
-------------------------
the reality is that people at large think the police should play by the same rules everyone else has to play by. they are willing to give some dispensation now and then, but mostly they expect the rules to be abided by.

the idea of rules that only apply to police is part of the problem.

a few of those rules are necessary but mostly they aren't, and that problem needs to be addressed as part of an overall attempt to improve the credibility of police in general.

a lot harder in a city that is run by criminals, and a lot of the public sees the police department as being a big part of what sustains those criminals. seeing as it is at least partially true, it is hard to refute.

i don't have a workable answer. maybe there isn't one.

I was there for the verdict. The state requested that the jury be polled. They all said the not guilty verdicts were theirs. The explanantion I can see is that they believed when shithead fired the gun he did not know it was the police. The officer was shot in he leg that kicked through the lower part of the locked door.
