Daley Dodges

We guess we won't be hearing the stuttering midget under oath any time soon:
  • Former Mayor Richard M. Daley will not have to answer questions under oath about allegations that — as state’s attorney and as mayor — he failed to investigate torture allegations against convicted former Area 2 Chicago Police Commander Jon Burge.

    Daley avoided the hot seat on Monday — with an assist from Mayor Rahm Emanuel — thanks to $7.17 million in settlements advanced by the City Council’s Finance Committee.

    The new settlements bring to $53.6 million the amount of money local taxpayers have shelled out to defend Burge and his Area 2 co-horts [sic], compensate victims of their alleged torture and pay a special prosecutor to investigate the controversy.
This remains one of the more annoying cases we've followed - not a single person has been convicted of torture, not a single case has been brought to trial, not a single shred of physical evidence has even been produced to prove torture, yet $53 million (and counting) has been paid from taxpayer funds.

I hope there is an afterlife, because that's going to be the only place that Daley is going to pay for his crimes.

Of course not. Rahm won the election because he must have struck a deal with daley! I'm not a cop yet, but every person I have talked to from state and madison north west, and most south and west siders too, no one voted for rahnm! Plain and simple, we are talking numbers here... Let's investigate the "fake" numbers that will be presented to us when we file a freedom of info act to see the "real" election results! This Last mayoral election in this city was more skewed than an afganistan or iraq election. Looks like Boss tweed came out of the grave for this one! Can't keep blaming yuppies for rahm, it was all out fixed from washington down to us. Keep his hinass out of the HOT Seat and your in! " I will not run for. Mayor agaist daley". Wala, and puff, your in. Fucked up!

This is all about giving money to the lawyers and law firms that sue the City of Chicago. They then kick back some money to the Cook County Democratic Organization. This scam has been going on for decades. The People's Law Office and Loevy & Loevy are 2 of the firms that do it..

I would like to point out that not a single person has ever been identified as the perpatrators of the murders that these so called innocent victims alledgedly did not commit.

These are the facts as I see them:

1. Bodies were found and the cause of death was homicide-murder.
2. Evidence pointed too and prosecutors approved charges against the prime suspects.
3. Judges and juryies reviewed the evidence and rendered a verdict.
4. Appeals courts reviewed the trials and sustained the verdicts.
5. Flint Taylor found a way to make money and suddenly all of these so-called victims step forward and claim torture.
6. Flint Taylor gets the media and politicians involved. They are interested in justice not politics?
7. Flint Taylor, media and politicians never identify the real offenders of the murders!
8. Burge alledgedly commits perjury and is doing 5 plus years in North Carolina.
9. Every other detective involved talks to lawyers and decide that the intelligent step to take is to invoke the 5th Amendment.
10. Daley has the power to avoid taking the 5th as he can order the City to pay.
11. City pays and so-called victims go and obtain get of jail cards and go directly to GO and collect millions.
12. Flint Taylor receives 33% plus of 51 millions, which equals at a minimum of 17 million!

You gotta love justice in Chicago except if one of your loved ones turned out to be a homicide-murder victim.

Wow! I can remember when this story broke. People were coming out of the wood work claiming to be victims and demanding justice!

Well, boys and girls, we now know the price tag for justice in Chicago......$53 million (min) at best.

All the screaming of police torture, the countless people mugging before the camera with their sad tales is made all better when you throw money at them.

Gee, can the city negotiate settlements for p.o. lawsuits so we're off the hook financially and not have to testify in court or at depositions?

Fast Eddie Burke and the rest of his merry band of thieves had nothing smart to say after passing the settlement. Usually they throw out some ignorant comments about P.O.s after they approve police lawsuit settlements.

They know that if Daley gets deposed it will cost the City many millions more in settlements and attorney's fees.

Flint Taylor would piss in his pants if he got a chance to ask Daley questions under oath for a couple of days. Come to think of it, I might piss myself if that happened too.

Flint Taylor was one of the lead attorney's back in the days of the Black Panthers Raid and names like Mark Clark, Fred Hampton and Ed Hanrahan were in the news. Flint Taylor did some of the civil suits. He knows how full of shit Daley and pals are.

"...“We have a future to build — not a past to settle. ... .How old is this now — 30 years old? ... It is time we end it,” Emanuel said."

Isn't it time Daley face some corruption charges for all his 'I don't know nuttin' schemes. Some future we look forward to, after Daley's destructive theiving ways that is.
How long will the Vaneko inquisition last before its settled with the city? The Daley Legacy is costing the city millions and that's the past we're settling.
Daley's prior arrogant apology still insisted he knew nuttin' has now become Rahm's mantra. Avoid & divert serious questions so his overstaffed PR dept can craft a statement.

There never was any torture. The whole thing was cooked up by four or five fanatical lawyers. The worst case is Anthony Porter. Fortunately, Northwestern University now knows that David Protess was a criminal and that he lied and bribed testimony to obtain exonerations. That's one reason they fired him. The state's attorney knows, Northwestern knows, the Innocence Project knows...it's only a matter of time before this entire scame sees the light of day.

If Flint Taylor was not in it for the money as he claims why didn,t he reject the offer and depose Daley. After all, all he ever talks aout is proving Daley,s involvment.

The twelve points of the above poster hit the nail on the head.

Part of "Da' Daley Deal" would be Eric Holder through Obama would not prosecute Daley or his family for his shenanigans. (The real reason Fitzgerald left office)
Rahm would assure City Council approval to "pay-out' rather than have the stuttering prick do his thing at a Burge deposition.

17mil fora lawyers fee and not having to go to trial.
Why wasn't the decision to accept a plea not made until after Daley was deposed? And yet the thief lawyer is saying that he wished he could have deposed Daley. Typical Crook county payoff again.

Civil rights attorney Flint Taylor, who represented Tillman, said he’s “disappointed” he won’t get to question Daley under oath.

Be serious. If you really wanted to get him on the stand & question him all you would have to do is NOT settle the case out of court. Turn down the money just one time and make it go to trial so that the POS will have to take the stand.

what a big surprise daley is getting off the hook again! that was a big relief for you richie. you dodged a huge bullet that would have kept chicago in line with detroit had you been indicted and sent to prison already. chicago breathes a sigh of relief as it isn't dying as quickly as detroit just yet. the cancer has already spread far enough into chicago's whole. that means you rahmbo and barry obamamama.

In the eyes of the media and the public, detectives who plead the fifth instead of saying what did or did not happen and why are treated as guilty and trying to cover something up. Anybody who pleads the fifth is perceived as guilty regardless of if the person actually is. The only way to lower future claims is to defend the charges vigorously and letting whatever happen happen. Defend the old school way instead of complaining about how it is not allowed.

This whole things should sicken every decent, law abiding taxpayer in Chicago. Apparently these taxpayers are few and far between in this corrupt City and I guess they don't vote.

Murdering criminals go free and are given taxpayer millions with the help of lawyers that suborn perjury. These lawyers have assisted not only in stealing that money, but in helping those demons get away with murder. I really think we are beyond hope.
