Politicians Hooked Up With Gangs?

  • In light of the recent gang violence in Uptown, Chicago Magazine could not have picked a more relevant time to publish their investigation of Chicago politicians and their connections to gangs. In the recently released January 2012 issue, the article details several different Chicago alderman and their connections to gangs, in addition to publishing a map of gang territory in Chicago.

    The 46th ward is featured prominently in this article. Former 46th ward Alderman Helen Shiller is the one of the primary aldermen featured in the article. The article spotlights Helen's connection to twin brothers, Rahiem and Rahmon Ali, two leaders of the Gangster Disciples. Rahiem had over forty arrests before his death. What attorney was defending him in court? The former 46th Alderman's son, Brendan Shiller.
Well this would explain more than a little of the violence currently wracking the Uptown neighborhood.

What? No mention of 'former' gang member Ald. Rey Colon??? It was his 'fraternal' voting block that pushed out the incumbent in a run-off.

Must read whole article it will make your head spin. Especially the part about how the pols right letters to get gang leaders switched to nicer penitentiaries. Go figure Burke im with you because I was the police brother and Acevedo how dare you tow my car were letter writers for leaders of the Mld. Oh wait isn't that the gang that Mcstupid declared war on. Well I guess the pols don't listen to you either.

They need to follow up with Part 2 in what will hopefully be an entire series. Part 2 being Munoz and his many co-conspirators responsible for the epidemic of Hispanic gangs and all that goes hand-in-hand with that particularly violent "culture".

Uptown Violence: Shootings Continue In Days Following Standoff With Gang Members

"Chicago's Uptown neighborhood has been plagued by violence in recent weeks, and one alderman says gangs are to blame. As CBS Chicago reports, at least 12 people were shot -- one fatally -- in the North Side neighborhood since Oct. 31. The majority of those shootings, however, happened in December."

And everybody wonders why Coppers in this God-forsaken city are so perpetually pissed, alienated and really not giving too much of a fuck other than exercising self, career and financial preservation in the face of this bullshit?

The only people exercising any semblance of ethical conduct among those with sworn authority ARE THE POLICE.

And to think media fools like Neil "My Wife Looks Like A Bozo Bop-Bag When I Wear My Beer Goggles" Steinberg think that Policemen complain just to complain.

The Chicago legacy criminal-political/media cabal is the source of the rot that has eaten away at this city.

The Chicago legacy criminal- political/media cabal has gone all out to destroy CPD as a bulwark against the fuckery outlined in the article.

Yeah... It's all about "those greedy coppers who won't share in the pain and sacrifice," right?

We've been yelling about this shit FOR YEARS but mainstream media refused to illuminate and the feds refused to investigate but those two entities would put the conternts of a Copper's underwear drawer on display sunny-side up to drive a wedge between The Police and the public.

...Fuck if we can't wait for the next 11 volumns in this series for a tiny fraction of the political bullshit in this town to be exposed.

Fuck every fool who said we were making noise and being angry for no reason... This article is the very beginning of the surface being scratched.

Still think The Police are the enemy good people?

I hate to speak bad of another officer, but if any cop was scared to arrest a POS gangbanger because of their connection to an alderman, then they need to find another line of work.

Everyone who drops the name of some alderman or "who they know" does it to see if you will flinch and then they know if they got you. Cover your ass and do the job right.

If Uptown has turned to shit because coppers were afraid of the mention of some alderman's name then they have themselves to blame.

This problem can be partly attributed to voter apathy and holding elections in February, the coldest month of the year.

Look at Rahm. 40 percent of the registered voters comes out to vote. Rahm wins only 50 percent of the vote. This means Rahm was only elected by 20 percent of the registered voters!

Why do they hold elections in February? Because so few people will venture out in the cold to exercise their right to vote. The politicians are crooked, but not so dumb.

Has he forgot where he comes from? He has been Daley's lackey in Springfield for years and has never voted in favor of the interests of his fellow officers. Now, he appears a prominant figure in a gang to politician connection article. Shamefull. But, he will get two full pensions, the department and a larger one from the legislature.

Don't forget Jesse!



A: Noah Robinson, Jesse Jackson's half brother, graduated from Wharton School of Business in 1969. He had a promising career ahead of him. Jesse Jackson said, "No, brother, come with me in Chicago. I want you to be my partner." He brought Noah Robinson into Operation Breadbasket. They subsequently went into business in the Breadbasket Commercial Association and into Operation PUSH as well. Jesse then introduces Noah Robinson to Jeff Fort, who was the head of Blackstone Rangers. This was the biggest – and at the time, the most violent – street gang in Chicago, subsequently convicted of killing more than 200 people. Jeff Fort and Jesse Jackson are closely tied. Noah Robinson gets involved in the gang, he gets lots of business, he becomes a businessman in Chicago – partly with the gangs, partly with Jesse Jackson. He gets lots of contracts with the city government that Jesse helps him get through these minority set-aside programs.

The county ethics board is investigating Berrios’ hiring practices for possible ethics violations, as county officials are barred from hiring relatives whom they would supervise. When Berrios became assessor, he fired several staffers within the assessor’s office and replaced them with cronies and six family members. Despite facing a 16 percent budget cut and laying off 53 employees this year, Berrios still gave his daughter a $10,000 raise.

Many years ago I worked on the campaign of one of her challengers. She had the Gangster Disciples posted outside of most of the polling places in an obvious move to intimidate any normal voters from going to the polls. Then she was bussing in homeless and winos to the polls in big blue school buses, after which they were all given $10. I'm sure most of them lived no where near the 46th ward, but were given addresses in one of the SRO hotels to get them onto the voter books. She and her asshole kid are the epitome of bottom feeding scum. She is totally to blame for all the crime that is rampant in the Uptown area. Had the 46th ward had a decent alderman all of those years, it would not be the dump it is today, it would not house over half of the CHA's scattered site housing, and the gentrification that she opposed would have driven out all of these gang banging POS.

Totally off topic. If I made this # 124 in the Kneel Steinberg comment section, it would never get read.

I didn't want to give this hairless penis guy's blog a mouse click. You gotta wonder why anyone would like to look like a little boy and question bragging about size unless it's over compensating, but that's irrelevant to my post. Kinda.

I am a retired C.P.D.

I was glad to see all of the posts that expressed disgust with hairless penis for so many good reasons. He is an embarrassment and I do wish SCC would not link to him. He and his posters do not represent the vast majority of the C.P.D., past or present.

All voices should be heard. I'm a believer in freedom. If someone wants to find him, there is a thing called Google. But SCC also has the freedom not to link to him. He is not representative of us and does not deserve recognition by this site. A site for which I have respect.

Just a reminder; at one point in time, Katey Kakes or what ever her site is, got removed as a link. I was under the impression it was done for a reason. I don't know. Maybe it was a technical thing. But if it was done intentionally, I can't imagine what could have been on her blog that could remotely be of more discredit to our department than hairless penis.

SCC, I hope you will let my voice be heard and take to heart my suggestion. And no, that is not a contradiction to my post, to those of you out there who may think so. You might need to re-read the post.

Thanks,
stay safe,

The real question as it applies to us is: how have these corrupt politicians influenced the careers of gang banger cops? This would go back to a Chief of Detectives with direct ties to Organized Crime, in the form of inmate Hanhart and to the present where cops with clout, though themselves criminals are casually moved from choice assignment to choice assignment. The two thugs recently arrested with the Latin Kings are cases in point. Neither of these two had enough clout to move out of 004. Yet they somehow moved to 018 and Mass Transit. At the time of their moves, you needed 22 yrs to even be considered. Between the two of them, they did not have that amount of time. When these guys plead out, they should be required to give up their political clouts. That would make for some very interesting reading.

The mention of using new tif monies for certain city projects? Monies for low income housing?
Yet NOTHING on the pension funds! Look at the retirement rates by the troops, many under the 29 year mark and yet the City is still NEGLECTING the Pension Fund contributions.
It appears a purposeful act at bankrupting the Pension Fund. I see a lull regarding this matter. I've sent letters to the state reps regarding this matter. PEOPLE don't fall into a false sense of security because topic is ignored! Same goes for deferred comp, ask questions there, and the answers given are not reassuring.

Four years ago my partner and I handled a police involved shooting in the 025th District in the which the officers involved did an outstanding job. Of course they were sued anyway and the dead guy's family hired Shiller's scumbag son. They were seeking in excess of 3 million. The lazy fucks from the Corporation Counsel's office offered Shiller $600,000 but he refused.
The case went to a Federal Jury who awarded scumbag Shiller and the family NOTHING. That's right NOT A FUCKING PENNY. Like his mother, Shiller is a lowlife scumbag of immense proportions. I learned this bottom feeder is another in a long list of scummy attorneys who make their living suing the city and police department.
That's why this city is BROKE. Our Corporation Counsel offered this scumbag $600,000 for a justified shooting, where the officers involved used tremendous restraint trying to diffuse the situation before the offender made the decision for them to use deadly force. It was one of the best moments on this job to see Shiller get his ass handed to him by a Federal Jury.

Ah, there is always some "curiosity seeker" or anonymous "Group Of Investors, LLC." Not gonna be my problem.

Maybe get a tax break by donating it to be used as a halfway house?

Blackstone Rangers got their seed money from the taxpayers, through some white liberal minister or "activist" or someone who hipped them to "community grants." Read a great piece on this, I will see if I can find it.

Right when the Blackstone graffitti first spread through Hyde Park/Kenwood in the '60s, I remember watching a TV special they produced with our money; prettiest girls in the neighborhood doing musical numbers.

"Opportunity -- Please Knock!"

Did it ever. Blackstone Rangers to Black P Stone Nation to El Rukn. Remember the former Southmoor Hotel across from the park that they bought with drug and extortion money (and probably more grants) and turned into the "Temple Of Moorish Science?" City finally tore it down.

Why arent people sticking together and demanding a reduction in the amount of Aldermen? They tell us the City is less populated than years ago, and crime is down, so we don't need nearly as many police officers as before, so why in Hell do we need the same amount of Aldermen ? Time for a large pay-cut for them too.

Oh wait, I've read on here a thousand times "I ain't writing tickets to make money for the city". I am a retired Sgt, I used to ask guys why they NEVER wrote tickets. The answer? "Fuck the city". "I don't want to go to traffic court". "I didn't see any traffic violators Sarge". Well here you go everyone. 13 million last year alone. Out of our pockets.

All voices should be heard. I'm a believer in freedom. If someone wants to find him, there is a thing called Google. But SCC also has the freedom not to link to him. He is not representative of us and does not deserve recognition by this site. A site for which I have respect.

Just a reminder; at one point in time, Katey Kakes or what ever her site is, got removed as a link. I was under the impression it was done for a reason. I don't know. Maybe it was a technical thing. But if it was done intentionally, I can't imagine what could have been on her blog that could remotely be of more discredit to our department than hairless penis.

How many politicians stood up on behalf of Bill Cozzi and requested he be moved closer to home instead of that hellhole in LA?

I saw him today by the way. He sounds a little down and could really use some cards and letters. You can also stop in and visit him--1515 W. Monroe. You have to check in at the desk, then they notify the second floor where he is. You can only stand on the landing between stairwells and talk to him for a few minutes.

But those few minutes are worth more than gold to him. Stop in, say hi--shake his hand, welcome him home if you're in the area.

That man is my hero...to have endured all that he did and he is still so humble. It's the holidays. If you're in the neighborhood stop in. He needs us now as much as he always has.

Grudging kudos to D. Berstein & N. Isackson of Chicago Magazine for doing what the usual cabal of decaying alive, reeking & leaking anal-whore Chicago media has tried desperately not to do... Crack the door and let a little sunlight fall on the unholy alliance of terroristic Chicago narco-criminal street gangs, alderfools & other elected officials, urban clergy and the affiliated CPD brass-holes.

Now... Lets see the dots connected on how these forces combined in a concerted effort to destroy CPD from within and without as a meaningful law enforcement entity to buy time and protection for them furthering their criminal aspirations.

The whole of Illinois north of I-80 would become desert if every mature tree were to be hewn into planks to build a scaffold large enough to accomodate the justifiable group hanging of every dirty dog involved...

Heh... The public will ignore this and still say "The Police are the enemy."

This city is lost...

Why fight?

Why be angry?

Why the unquenchable thirst to see the perpetrators of fuckery being forced to climb the 13 stairs to meet their justifiable doom for their treachery?

Why the fervent desire to see things made right after being blamed for so many years as being the source of what's wrong in this town?

Whatever... Let the cries of "every man for himself" & "to the victors go the spoils" finally echo through the streets of this city...

We'll mutter "Viva Hate" under our breath and try to survive...

The powers that be threw every possible stymie and stumbling block in the path of The Police while changing the rules, exploiting every loop hole and gaming every safeguard to profit obscenely and with little fear of Police interference?

Chicago...

A Potemkin Village erected on a cemetery dug into a forgotten swamp.

The ghastly grinners thought buried & forgotten are percolating out of the ground and staring empty-eyed at all who pass by...

The people feign outrage... "Hey! You Cops! Hurry and clean up that mess YOU made!"

I hate to speak bad of another officer, but if any cop was scared to arrest a POS gangbanger because of their connection to an alderman, then they need to find another line of work.

I hear you oficer, but even if you do arrest one of these connected gangbankers, you will probably have the gangbanger released by the watch commander or the DC, that is if you are on the south side. Hall Baskin was arrested twice for assaulting the police and both times released by the DC of 007 with no charges.

Hey, wait a second. Old Shaved has been around for years -- like it or don't like it, read it or don't read it -- and all of a sudden someone says "Steinberg" and this whole big campaign starts on someone else's web site.

Hmm.

Let's put it this way; we think the guy ran in that laundry room under there, the one with all the light bulbs busted out. Big drain pipes with the lid gone and you can't see the hole at all because there's inches of water on the floor, rotten wood to slip on...and those old cement-filled sinks to give the prick cover.

This is where you stop and look at each other.

What about Roberto Maldonado, the 26th Ward Alderman who had an unknown 18 year old go up against him in the last election and get 20% of the vote.

The only reason he won the election is because he paid gang members to put out more than 10,000 campaign signs - illegally, on City property, in parkways, and in the medians of streets - the night before.

Maldonado also bought chicken dinners for everyone at every polling place in the 26th Ward.

Had he not come up with the 2nd installment of his property taxes - which were still unpaid 3 days prior to the election, he would have been disqualified from the ballot.

I couldn't agree more.

The problem is there are too many cops who are ignorant of how damaging that blog is to their reputation.

Unfortunately, many won't realize it until they face a civil jury where just one member has seen that blog. It won't be long before the other jurors check it out. I forsee future punitive damages against officers getting very high possibly in the neighborhood of $50-100k for even the most simple wrongful arrest claim.

The outrage against that blog is not nearly high enough. That blog identifies itself as our voice! It is very damaging and it will end up costing many officers a lot of money.
