Let's BUY a Code of Silence

  • Mayor Rahm Emanuel's administration asked a federal judge Monday to set aside a jury verdict in the infamous videotaped beating of a female bartender by an off-duty Chicago police officer — essentially agreeing to pay the woman $850,000 now in return for erasing the jury's finding that a police "code of silence" protected the cop.

    The unusual request is an attempt to prevent last month's damaging verdict from being cited by lawyers in other lawsuits against the Police Department. The former bartender filed the motion jointly with the city; she stands to quickly collect the jury award she won without risking the chance of losing on appeal or having the trial judge reduce the amount.


    It will be up to U.S. District Judge Amy St. Eve to weigh the interests of the parties involved in the lawsuit against the interest of the public in having the record of the jury's verdict stand. City lawyers said they plan to appear before the judge Monday.
So they're going to buy a verdict adjustment in order to prevent themselves from having to defend any future allegations of a code of silence?

What about all the rest of Kirby's scandals where the clout heavy were covered up for years? What about the "Friends of Phil" program? And that's only the high profile cases. How about ongoing sexual harassment beefs? EEOC complaints? Grievances ignored/dismissed because bosses close ranks around serial problems and pretend nothing happened?

A new standard for Code of Silence will emerge with Daley's nephew, so buying one on the Abbate case is pointless. And the Daley case will go all the way up to the formerly Fat Phil and two State's Attorneys. What will that be called: "The Pinstripe Code of Silence?" Or the "Gold Braid Code of Silence"?

All of the above would lead to Lori Lightfoot being disqualifief from being the next United States Attorney for the Northern District of Illinois.

Someday an enterprising reporter will FOIA the demands from the Civil Rights Division of DOJ and upon receiving the documents it will be headlines!

For those of us with pending lawsuits and pending jury trials you better hope this is done... 99 percent if lawsuits and our jobs is no code if silence but civil lawyers will use this every single time in every lawsuit against good officers and unfortunately it will go a long way with clueless juries. Believe me, this is for the greater good.. And if you don't think so then maybe u will change your mind once u get slapped with a lawsuit alleging your part of a documented core of silence and cover up

You can call that Abbate a criminal and jerk who should not have been on the police force, but the gutst video released showed the female bartender being very aggressive, even pushing and shoving Abbate. If he had not beat and kicked her for ten minutes, he probably would not have been arrested. This column, I think, printed he is now at McPier, if he is, hopefully he has gotten his act together, McPier already has enough goofs and does not need more

But isn't the bartender worried about other victims of the code of silence and how her rolling-over, so to speak, will impact their cases against the city?

(Insert picture of the bartender accompanied by the audio of Cuba Gooding Jr. shouting "Show me the money!")

Apparently not. She must be so traumatized by the code of silence that the thoughts of 850K dancing in her head have blinded her to the plight of others.

Someday the bartender will realize the money was not as important as assisting the fellow victims of the mythical code of silence.

Obviously, the bartender was "blackmailed" into joining the City's motion. She will likely lose the entire judgment if the City appeals and since she has already won she would have to fight any appeal by the City. Would hate to be her at this point. Taxpayers will also suffer if the Judge lets the verdict stand because every attorney who ever thought about bring suit against the CPD will make the same allegations and now they know how to win.

ode of silence was a chuck norris movie with one of our very own as one of the cast members, sgt joe "bad actor" kosala---hair gels are brain washed at the academy to roll over like flipper the minute they see anything bad which doesn't give much credibility to this code of silence nonsense.... 12/04/2012 08:57:00 AM

So Im confused, should the hair gels roll over like flipper or keep they're mouth shut? Cant tell if youre angry that there is or isn't a code of silence.

To "Joe Shmoe" at 347pm: How do you appeal a Grand Jury (finding) decision? Hope you are using cans and not bottles....

12/04/2012 11:15:00 PM

(paper cups I hope)

Why, you go to the Grand Jury Appeal the Indictments I don't Like Court of Northern Illinois with the Honorable Algonquin J, Calhoun presiding.

So the City spent over $5 million to defend this case of an off duty drunken lout beating the bartender who suffered no real visible damage and was never knocked out and did not suffer any long term damage.

Now they want to spend another $850 thousand to prevent the verdict from mentioning something that does not exist. I think I understand now.

They could have offered $2 million a couple of years ago and saved at least $3.85 million. That money would pay for months more of Ceasefire's help in curbing violence.

OT question... when did it become common practice in 016 on midnights to come into condo PARKING LOTS to write P.O.'s cars??? It was clearly a P.O.'s car and no one called. I'm not going to point out who it was because I have a shred of decency. Classy move.

Hi Mc Fly. If a citizen calls the police to report a car doesn't have their city sticker then yes the police have to respond to the job and if they want to, they can issue tickets. Your car without a city sticker is safe in your garage. Think Mc Fly, think.


I ran a location history, no one called. This guy had no right to be writing cars on private property. I even said "no one called" in the original post. I think you're missing a few gigawatts.

Well the jury didn't think it was nonsense and apparently since the mayor is willing to throw away about a million dollars to cover up the verdict he must not think it's nonsense either.


Another jury full of democrats

Ok so what are you going to do about it besides writing on a blog? Look Albert Einstein said "for every problem there is a solution. If a problem can be stated then it can be solved". So what is your solution?

12/04/2012 09:07:00 PM
I'm not the person you feel so much smarter than and that's why you just couldn't help yourself from saying what you said which I then, in turn, copy/pasted above. But I do have a solution. I'm going to ask Santa to shut your holier than thou face the fuck up. Problem, solution, all on a blog. IMAGINE that.

An owner (or representative) of the private property still has to sign the citation, right?

We have learned that a 5yr old boy who has terminal cancer and is not expected to live to see Christmas. His dying wish is that he receives lots of Christmas cards from Law Enforcement, Fire, EMS, and Security. I would love for all of us to pull together and make this happen and honor his wish more than he could have ever imagined.

Please mail your card now to:

Nothing says corruption in Chicago politics like CHICAGO POLITICS.

"Corruption" and "Chicago Politics" are synonymous.
