How Big Was This Cover-Up?

Of course, the Sun Times publishes this on a national holiday when probably over 75% of readers are staying home and won't buy a newsstand copy. Why wasn't this published on a Sunday?:
  • For the 22 years he was mayor, Richard M. Daley relied upon a select group of police officers to ensure his safety and that of his family.
    The security detail was more than a palace guard. Its members routinely traveled with Daley and his family. They drove his kids to school. They ran errands for the family.

    Now, members of the police detail that served Daley are being questioned by Dan K. Webb, the special prosecutor appointed by a judge last year to reinvestigate the 2004 death of David Koschman.

  • Webb continues to look into why police and prosecutors from the Cook County state’s attorney’s office didn’t charge Vanecko.

    Webb’s team has questioned retired police Cmdr. Sam Roti, who became the detail’s commander in 2004, about two months after Koschman’s death.

    Roti replaced James Keating, a retired police officer who is now head of security for the Chicago Transit Authority.

    Keating and Roti both grew up in Bridgeport, the former mayor’s old neighborhood. Each joined the detail on April 25, 1989 — the day after Daley was first sworn in as mayor.
The article also outlines how the Security Detail was the first call Grand Beach Michigan police made when Patrick and Vanecko threatened some Filipino kids with a shotgun and one of "Patrick's friends" beat another kid into a coma with a baseball bat. Funny how no one in the press wondered why anti-gunner Daley had a shotgun stored out-of-state.

Fran also does a good job describing the incestuous relationships between Daley's detail, off-duty security businesses, and future high-paying government jobs certain members of that detail had at various points in time. She only touches on the extent of the Palace Guards' duties though, missing how they were glorified go-fers for Maggie's dry cleaning, cheap day labor and errand boys, and free chauffeurs for Daley, Daley's kids and Daley's grandchildren. Politically reliable suckholes.

It has been speculated here and other places that members of the Detail were present during the Koschman/Vanecko altercation. It's possible we might actually find out.

Those high priced Mr. Belvedere's used to perform all kind of non security related duties: shopping, snow shoveling, renting movies at Blockbuster... the list is virtually endless.
Although I like the spotlight being shone on this ridiculous abuse of power I think it's too little much too late.
Daley has all but bankrupted the city and not a damn thing was ever done about that. In fact he still is provided city owned vehicles and a couple of Mr. Belvedere's .. er I mean "bodyguard's"!

The article is so surprising (sarcasm) that since Daley is no longer in power, the journalists finally jump on the story.

In the end, nothing will happen to the clouted ones and somehow the dead guy will get all the blame. It's the Chicago way.

I guess we will have to wait for Rahm to leave Chicago before the journalists do an expose on all of his side deals with special interest groups and banks and all of his dysfunctional management picks.

The more it changes, the more it stays the same. Nothing will ever change in Chicago. Just the names of the people who are pulling the strings and screwing the taxpayers and city workers.

Any decent investigative reporter could have reported on this at the time.

That's a rhetorical of course.

Daley/Madigan/Rahm have always had the media's balls in their desk drawer.

As Daley was fond of using the term "Heavy Lifting", you know who did the "Heavy Lifting" in this sordid episode by who retired and who was evidently rehired (at CTA) and who got promoted.

I pray David Koschman's spirit buries all off them.

That's what it's going to take given the "fixes" that are likely in.

Mother of g-d, what an evil group.

The Utter Corruption that went into Daley's Flunkies goes much, much deeper. 1.All Members of the Detail recieved Sgts Pay. 2.Roti who barely had a high school education went on the detail, from his previous clout position at Mass Transit. He retired with a Gold Braid Pension and once Daley was elected never received less than Sgts Pay and retired at Commanders pay, never once having passed a promotional exam. 3. And then there were the errands. These guys did everything including cleaning the snow from in front of Daley and his family's homes! They even disposed of the family dog when Queen Maggie tired of it. And remember, for Daley this extended into two generations of political scum. When Daley's dad was Mayor, Chicago cops took the stuttering dummy to school and protected his fat ass from bullies, yet he hates the police and would do everything possible to shaft them. Da Boss an His Machine Should Burn in Hell!

Sorry to tell the truth but a law was enacted under Bush 2 that would have not given them and any president that follows them Secret Service Protection for life. Due to the War on Terror and all the security issues for both Bush 2 and Obama i think we owe our CIC and past CIC protection because they both had people killed to do what each though was needed to protect us (AMERICANS).

Hate to say it but this is the culture of CPD and Shitcago politics, which are one and the same. Another reason why no one, and I mean no one should be merit promoted again and again. These people are simply appointed via merit to the top spots and are then beholden to the mayor and aldermen, etc.
it's the reason why the city refuses to institute a fair and equitable promotional process. The fix has been in for years and its only a matter of time until their house of cards comes tumbling down. What a shame we are now stuck with these pretenders for year to come.

The article is so surprising (sarcasm) that since Daley is no longer in power, the journalists finally jump on the story.

In the end, nothing will happen to the clouted ones and somehow the dead guy will get all the blame. It's the Chicago way.

I guess we will have to wait for Rahm to leave Chicago before the journalists do an expose on all of his side deals with special interest groups and banks and all of his dysfunctional management picks.

The more it changes, the more it stays the same. Nothing will ever change in Chicago. Just the names of the people who are pulling the strings and screwing the taxpayers and city workers.

After reading the scum-times they only mention certain members of his detail why? They mention Tony Fosco a great copper great Father why did they have to mention him,the man is dead RIP Tony! Tony was an authority on boxing,movie companies came to him to discuss his extensive knowledge,that is what he was known for,not any of the Daley bullshit,an honorable man that left a wife and 4 kids! His death has nothing to do with Daly and why the paper had to mention this is beyond reason. RIP Tony,and we worked special together on CTA your we're the real police, and did everything you could to earn money to support your family! I am beyond mad after reading this article GOD bless your family brother your in heaven save me a spot thanks for your humor and just being a great man! T.L. From 543 !!

When will you peons learn that ARMED protection for the politically elite is solely for them and them only!
24/7/365, and as a serf on the Democratic plantation, YOU, must pay for it with tax dollars.
Quinn, Burke, Shortshanks, Rahm, tax funded Armed security.
O-Blame-a, whose coronation is today, signed a E/O that gives HIM Secret Service protection along with HIS family, the rest of his life.
All other former Presidents received 10 to 15 years protection.
For you, F**K, you, the understaffed, overworked, and poorly led, demoralized Police is enough for you.
Now back to the fields and chop some cotton, and never question the Elite again!

there are lots of rumors about various guys making deals. if even 1 in 10 is true a lot of guys are going down, but it will be mostly coppers and other low level city employees. no one important will take a hit.

the usual deal is you take the hit for a few years and forget anything that has to do with anyone important and we will take care of you when you get out.

I love people who use the jealousy argument, some of us just want a system that is fair for everyone who is qualified instead of the current corrupt process. Why shouldn't every sworn member get an equal opportunity for all CPD positions. The past and current "merit" system has led us down the path to destruction, that's not jealousy, that's a fact!

I recall a lieutenant and a police officer were indicted and served federal time for stating before a grand jury " I dont remember". Both of them worked vice in 018. It was a department rule back then that you could not take the 5th. Now, this is not a federal grand jury, but the guy running it was a federal prosecutor. My point is, you must testify or take the 5th or you could be facing jail time.

Blast form the past, old timer! Didn't he have like 9 notches in his belt? He was the real deal, what a character. For those of you new guys (anyone on after 1982), this guys was in like eight shoot-outs, killed nine guys, all legit. He was a part time actor that had a commercial on TV as a butcher for Dominick's - good looking guy. He retired and ran for political office in like Palos Hills or something.
Yup. Back in the day, when dinos still roamed the earth. I always sighed in relief when he showed up on a job. He was working the day Sgt. Jerry Hardin was shot in the face at 75 and Cottage, was disappointed the perp was taken alive. They broke the mold, sigh.

There were always major media willing to run stories. Leaks to the Sun Times iced Ald. Mazola from the Med Ctr. board, and there were few as connected as he. I think the anti-media bias here is a little childish. They need sources. The reason they're running this now is because they have a source in the special prosecutor. If anyone has proof of anything, find a reporter. It'll get written.

One of the reasons Rich retired is people around him started to realize the anger over the parking meter contract made him vulnerable to actually losing.

What people haven't realized, but they will, is that the parking contract went to Morgan Stanley, and the conduit back to la familia was Bill Daley's son, who has a fat job there.

I think once Bill's name gets attached to the parking meter contract, that balloon is going to burst.
