Fake ID Murder Trial

  • Six years after heavily armed federal agents stormed the 26th Street Discount Mall and seized ID-making equipment, Assistant U.S. Attorney Michelle Nasser told jurors that grisly wiretaps, video footage and insider accounts will show how the Leija-Sanchez crew used violence and paid the Latin Kings to protect its turf for two decades.

    Julio Leija-Sanchez and his brother Manuel deny charges of running the U.S. and Mexican branches of the business, respectively, while Salazar-Rodriguez denies he was the enforcer who murdered Montes.

    But tens of thousands of fake drivers licenses, green cards and social security cards were sold at $200 a pop to immigrants out of the parking lot in front of a photo store run by Ald. Ricardo Munoz’s father, Elias, Nasser said. Illegal workers were smuggled across the border, then forced to join the business to pay off their debt, she said.
Of course, no one mentions the aldercreature's mother who was arrested with a stack of fake ID's back in the 1990's and released after phone calls from Ricardo.  And the Tribune seems to forget that they did an entire series about how the latin kings were pulling in $30,000 a month in protection money from the "mica men" back in the 1990's.  Or how the building at 26th and St. Louis burned to the ground one night - a building that housed the other Photo Estudio Munoz.  Or the little matter of a teenaged Munoz holding weapons for a certain gang making $30,000 per month in protection money.

That isn't talked about in polite company.

    Was this the raid where the locals were complaining that the Feds were too heavily armed? That was six yrs ago? Wow.

    One more question, as it's hard to remember all the various alderthieves and their various crimes... Is this alderman the one who was renting his aldermanic office space from a building that he and/or his family owned?

    Don't look over here! Look over by there!

    *We now pause for station identification & some Daley Inc./Rahm & Co. distraction*

    GAAAHHHH! YOU GREEDY COPS! It's all YOUR fault the city had it's bond rating reduced! You and your "cush 100k a year" pension and "sweet early retirements" have bankrupted this city! Why don't you guys take a pay cut and give some of your money back? We hate you becuase we're eating our 401K's etc etc etc..."

    Is it finally sinking in people?

    This caper is going NOWHERE because it has potential to be walked backwards and dropped at the feet of Short Biggie...

    Munoz wouldn't fart without asking permission from Daley.

    Hell yeah Munoz was a side-boy for the kings.

    Let's talk about all the taxpayer money that has disappeared down the alderfool & gangbanger rabbit hole here in Chicago!

    What about all the long-term criminal investigations torpedoed by political interference on behalf of the street gangs by the alderfools?

    What about alderfools caught with CPD interdepartmental mail in their homes?

    You bet your ass the gangs had a heads-up on a lot of investigations.

    And the misguided, kool-aid drinking citizens believe the City Hall and media propaganda of "The Police are your enemy."

    "Why are you Cops so angry and hateful all the time? If you guys were nicer, we would support you."

    As we've gotten older, we came to deeply understand why so many Chicago Coppers flee for a cabin in the woods or a little house on the prairie... These liberal democratic, yellow-pinky urban strongholds are places where the dreams of upright men die and rot where they fell.

    The Policeman didn't break it... It's way beyond The Policeman to fix it...

    Viva Hate...

    Our city government is corrupt beyond imagination.
    I think, as citizens, we are supposed to do something about this.

    But these illegal immigrants only come here to make a better life for themselves. They start businesses and stuff and that helps our economy.

    Every single one of them if you listen to the media! Don't you see the stories? The honor students that go on to get university degrees.

    EVERYONE of the them if you listen to the media. They work so hard.


    So not the state legalized the $30,000 month ID business by offering illegal immigrant drivers licenses. How nice that the laws mean anything.

    Does anybody know who "Individual A" might be?

    When the racket was shut down over $5 million was seized.

    Now the taxpayers finance a kangaroo court trial.

    This city is a cesspool of corruption.

    I would have to speculate that a few police officers are/werein on this. Police officers assigned to 010 ran security at the mall for years in the 90's ( may still do). Mexican politics are strong in 010 and influence the district commander. Maybe a federal grand jury might help get to the bottom of this.

    On Sunday Quinn signs off on illegals having DL's
    Will this family be given the state contract to hand out the DL's on 26th St since they are very experienced in making them? These folks were just ahead of their time and should be freed!

    So this democrat can engage in slave labor, or indentured servitude if you will, but that's OK.

    What a disgrace this city has become. The fact that Munoz was allowed to keep his job is stunning. Shame on you Chicago, Sanctuary City, and shame on you Chicago Media.

    My Question is, Why was this fake ID Operation allowed to last 30 plus years and Cpd and the FEDS did nothing? Most stores and Restaurants on 26th Street are money laundering Operations and were built on Drug money.

    Political correctness? Or is it his affiliation with a former Clinton appointed U.S. Attorney. I do not remember if Munoz or if it was the attorney that was endorsed by each other when they recently ran for a political office.

    I think it was Ald. Munoz who a couple of weeks ago was stopped by a traffic unit driving on a suspended license, no city sticker and expired plates. His car was impounded. I wonder if he paid the impoundment fee of $2000.00

    010 is loaded with special hispanic interests and the police cannot do anything about them. But, neither does the city. Nightclubs that are not properly licensed and cater to teenagers ( at least four of them) and they make big money.The political people own parts of these clubs. Street food venders that are not licensed and sell processed food ( food trucks are banned everywhere else in the city as well as food carts). Ice cream trucks that are not licensed, On duty cops providing security for businesses. I could go on, but you get the point. Hispanic politics are powerful. Lots of money here.Yes, the sanctuary city where they are planning on making waves of illegals eligible to vote.
