Bill Comes Home

Bill Cozzi arrived in Chicago this morning. He is currently accepting first class mail at the address listed in our sidebar. No visitors, parcels and phone calls. As we don't need the Bureau of Prisons causing Bill problems, we ask that all abide by the rules.

John Northen writes:
  • Priority No. 1 is a JOB for Bill. Please forward all job offers for Bill with specifics to John Northen at cpdfop7@yahoo.com with "JOB OFFER FOR COZZI" in subject line.
Northen will update us as he can and let us know when the conditions would permit a welcoming committee to properly greet Bill.

Hopefully he will resist the urge to go straight to the bullshit Chgo Crime Commission and beat the living shit out of Jody J-Fled the Coward Weis. Hey Bill, Karma is a bitch and he will get his in due time. The biggest hurt that can be put on him is if Bill lands squarely on his feet.

It's a shame that we just could not run a benefit party for Bill. In fact two! One North let's say on a Tuesday and one South on a Thursday. White Eagle and Bourbon Street? When the time comes I’ll work both.

And if anyone ever stops J-Pud and gives him a professional courtesy I’ll be your worst enemy.

I was on a bus to Springfield last week. I was happy to see a lot of faces that I never see at a union meeting. The return trip was an adventure. Never laughted so hard in my life.

Be safe and watch each others backs. Because no one else in this miserable city will.

Bill's brother David and I were joined by three others to give Bill big hugs when he arrived via Greyhound bus before dawn this morning. He's looking good and upbeat. I still just had to bust his balls.

We were going to stop at Dunkin' Donuts to see if they had chicory coffee and beignets but we were pressed for time. However, I promised him that I would treat him to a crawfish etoufee and jambalaya dinner when time permits.

I reminded him that his #1 ranked Louisiana State (LSU) Bayou Bengals will meet the #2 ranked Crimson Tide at Alabama's Bryant-Denny Stadium in Tuscaloosa on Saturday night in a televised battle of the undefeated.

However, I got the distinct impression that Bill has a strong aversion for anything from the State of Louisiana. It's safe to say that you will never find him on Bourbon St. even for the boobage of Mardi Gras. He can't stand Cajun zydeco music either.

Roll, Tide, Roll!

Nov 3 (Reuters) - Thirty U.S. Fortune 500 corporations paid
no income taxes in 2008 through 2010, said a report from two
policy think tanks released on Thursday.

The report was issued by Citizens for Tax Justice and the
Institute on Taxation and Economic Policy.

The 30 companies had negative effective tax rates, meaning
they made more in profits after accounting for taxes than
before. The negative tax provisions include "carry back" tax
benefits applied to previous tax years.

Here are the 30 companies named in the report and their
effective tax rates:

Company Effective tax rate 2008-2010

Pepco Holdings (POM.N) -57.6 percent

General Electric (GE.N) -45.3 percent

Paccar (PCAR.O) -30.5 percent

PG&E Corp (PCG.N) -21.2 percent

Computer Sciences (CSC.N) -18.3 percent

NiSource (NI.N) -16.4 percent

CenterPoint Energy (CNP.N) -14.7 percent

Tenet Healthcare (THC.N) -11.6 percent

Atmos Energy (ATO.N) -11.6 percent

Integrys Energy Group (TEG.N) -11.3 percent

American Electric Power (AEP.N) -9.2 percent

Con-way (CNW.N) -9.1 percent and your worried about a link card-

I would think the FOP has some post Bill can hold. They made posts for people unjustly fired in the past. I know no one would mind a $10 a year raise in union dues with the knowledge Bill reaps the rewards that is $70,000 right there, and he wouldn't even have to work for the city!

as far as "I got the distinct impression that Bill has a strong aversion for anything from the State of Louisiana. It's safe to say that you will never find him on Bourbon St. even for the boobage of Mardi Gras. He can't stand Cajun zydeco music either."

A lot of Italian lot of Chicago Italian families came through New Orleans as the port of entry. I wouldn't be supprised if it were that for the Cozzi family.

Mardi Gras and Bourbon St. has to be enjoyed like the locals do, not the tourists. I have an invite to join the "krewe" of a NOLa friend when it rolls again and that is on the bucket list. Maybe take Bill and a bunch down there after I recon it.

Everything will be better from now on!

A tip of the round crown and heartfelt appreciation to John Northen & his aptly able assist units for shepherding our CPD family member Bill Cozzi home.

It was a long, sad and totally unnecessary sojourn inflicted by a ruthless and unmerciful less than a human being obviously weaned on the the decayed and sour teats of hatred and joy in the misery of better men than he ever could dream to be.

May the many whoredoms j-fled committed and the money he was paid to commit them, recline in riotous, grinning decay alongside him for what he's done to Bill, this city and the CPD Family.

The true price paid will only be known to us and those who actually give more than a damn about us and the fate of this city.

It is no small source of agita that there are many deluded souls who still cheer & fling confetti at the mention of that less than a man's name who foisted his peculiar brand of un-needed fuckery and sorrow on CPD.

Yes... We ARE holding back on telling how we really feel.

As an aside... A little plausible insight as to why Cozzi was sent to hell for his sentence.

Louisiana has a fairly long history of adversarial relations with Italians. (and Catholics to a somewhat lesser extent)

It stems mostly from labor unrest on the New Orleans waterfront during the 1880's through 1890's that involved Italian longshoremen.

New Orleans Chief of Police David Hennessy was gunned down in front of his home on 16 Oct 1890 and died some hours later but not before he allegedly gave a "dying declaration" to someone who may or may not have had their own agenda.

"Dagoes did it..."

In the ensuing "round up," 19 men of Italian origin were confined to the Parish Jail.

A mob overtook the jail and lynched 11 of them...

Hmmm... Ya think that sorry bit of history played a part in Bill being sent to the bayou?

The feebs, from j-fled on up pushed this to "make those out of control coppers afraid."

Heh... 99.99% of Chicago Policemen do what they're supposed to do so they have no need to fear a damned thing except persecution just for being the select to wear the Blue & White Silitoe Tartan...

Kudos to Northside & Friends.

God Bless & Welcome home to Brother Bill.

Damnation & Torment to j-fled & every feeb who pushed this nonsense...

Mike Shields will not make you dinner. The FOP will not mow your lawn. They have no control over your taxes. They do not determine who the mayor is.

The FOP is charged with negotiating a contract and enforcing the terms of the contract AND NOTHING ELSE.

They do not determine the terms of your pension. That is controlled by state law. They do not enforce criminal laws or civil suits for policemen who are wronged by civilians, even hose pulling ones. That is their responsibility.

Take care of yourself. Stop being a whinnying bitch. Stop blaming others because your life sucks. It is nobody's fault but your own.

I beg to differ with you on that.

Maybe the Irish or Scotch-Irish had problems with the Italians. But who doesn’t have problems with the Irish or Scotch-Irish.

There are many towns in Louisiana that are heavily Italian. Independence La. for example where my family first settled you will find the Italian tri-color and the Sicilian trinacria flags next to the U.S. Flag all up and down the roads.

I could go on but I think I'll have a snack of a muffuletta sandwich.

I vowed that the CPMF would not see a penny of my money until Phil Cline is gone from the organization. I believe it is scandalous, near criminal, that he makes 150K off the backs of our fallen and, admittedly, I cannot stand the sight of him. I think Cline is lower than an Irish tinker, but, if he hires Bill Cozzi and gives Bill full-time employment at the CPMF, I will again contribute my money to the CPMF to help pay for Bill's toil towards bettering and representing the organization, whether Cline remains with the CPMF or not.

Why would Shields have anything to do with Cozzi coming home? Bill Cozzi is not an officer. Hasn't been since he was fired and unjustly sent to the joint. Long before Shields was ever elected. As one other poster stated, what would Mike being present for Bill's arrival home accomplish in the grand scheme of things? That's right - absolutely nothing. Apples and oranges at this point, kids. Now all you hard asses barking about shit you don't know the first thing about, get back out there and be the "real police". And see if you can avoid being the next Cozzi doing so. You dummies will NEVER learn.

Welcome home, Bill.

Bill,
Great to have you home. You are the real police and come judegement day your work will be eternally rewarded. The guy who is responsible for your last assignment will also be eternally rewarded but he will need a lot of heat gear. Be strong and the finish line is now in sight.

Please send him a card or letter to the address listed on the right of the SCC home page. He needed them then, and he needs them now. Please write to him. He's not out of the woods yet. And he's our brother--never forget.

Hes a convicted felon, so that pretty much makes him unemployable in any law enforcement community, unless he were to receive a full presidential pardon. So for all practical purposes, Bill HAS been "fired". Yes, it sucks and sucks bigtime, but thats just the way it is. Kinda like a chick being 'kinda pregnant'. Quit detracting from the points of the posts here. Dipshit.

Hey Shit for brains! Just what do you think FOP should or should not do for Bill Cozzi? FOP doesn't make it rain and snow. Did you know that? No!, you sit in your car while men braver then you drive down that alley and chase the devil. While you collect a pay check for doing nothing.

Fat Phil pulls in 150k large, I think that Bill Cozzi should be entitled to a taste after what he went through. Time for the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation to stepup and payup.


Give Bill Cozzi a job or some help would yah.

11/03/2011 09:12:00 PM

I vowed that the CPMF would not see a penny of my money until Phil Cline is gone from the organization. I believe it is scandalous, near criminal, that he makes 150K off the backs of our fallen and, admittedly, I cannot stand the sight of him. I think Cline is lower than an Irish tinker, but, if he hires Bill Cozzi and gives Bill full-time employment at the CPMF, I will again contribute my money to the CPMF to help pay for Bill's toil towards bettering and representing the organization, whether Cline remains with the CPMF or not.

Phil Cline does not make $150,000 at the foundation. He makes a patrolmen's salary. The foundation has given out almost 2,000,000.00 dollars to our brothers and sisters and their families in need. But, don't give just keep coming on here and bitch about the past. The foundation is more than one person. Look at all the brothers and sisters that they help.

Mike Mette was a convicted felon too Dipshit. Mike Mette is a fully employed Chicago Police Officer today, is he not?

Bill Cozzi is still a Chicago Police Officer and FOP #7 and Mike Shields failed him in a huge way the other day.

Stop the nonsense about who was or wasn't there to see Bill. It was kept quiet to give Bill some privacy, breathing room and to avoid the media. Keep supporting him by sending him cards and letters. Give him and his family some privacy and space. We will have a benefit for him with his family on the committee when the time is right.

Mette's conviction was OVERTURNED by a judge/court of law...as in it technically never happened, that is why he still is a sworn officer. The same CANNOT be said for Bill unfortunately. I understand your frustration, but spouting off here (and probably elsewhere) in ignorant fashion does nothing to bolster your argument. You should also get your facts straight before you go slamming the FOP and how they "failed" Bill. The only thing that failed Bill was the corrupt system prodded to make an example of Bill, orchestrated by a fucking coward fed wannabe cop named Jody P. Weis. The FOP and everyone else concerned about Bill can only do so much. Did you ever stop to think that maybe the guy just wants to be left the fuck alone for a while? He just spent years having other people make up his mind for him - do you think he really wants 100s of coppers ( although well-intentioned) dictating his schedule, who should've done what for him, who's gonna get him a job, who's gonna plan a big benefit party, etc, etc?? Give the man his space douchebag, just like anyone that's been thru this before KNOWS TO DO. No doubt you're a slick sleeve, because you really don't know what the fuck you're talking about. Educate yourself before you go and make yourself look stupid...again. You're a prime example of why this department is shot...too much running of the mouth before the brain is fully engaged. Dipshit.

Shields keep making BS excuses for your abysmal lack of leadership and character. You, my friend are the quintessential example of the "Peter Principle".

I will guarantee that you are your crew of losers are one termers, if that.

It must suck be in way above your head and not knowing what to do or how to do it.
