Aldrecreature Burke to Practice Law

It's seldom so obvious, but does anyone else think the fix is in?
  • Spotted in branch 44 today was former alder woman Sharon Dixon who looked just like a hype searching for a rock on the west side. She is being represented by none other than Ald. Burke himself, yes he looked like a lost puppy attempting to figure out how to operate in a courtroom. Anyway, Sharon will be staying a bit longer at Cermak hospital while Alderman Burke figures out how to get the charges dropped and fill in Sharon on how and who to sue on the Police Department 
Eddie hasn't practice criminal law in how many years?  If ever?  Anyone have a continuance date for this case?  Anyone drop a line to Kass?  You want to see the Chicago Machine Fix in action, drop by Branch 44 and check this one out.

Kinda of weird?

No conflict of interest at all?

Burke represent the city and he is defending a nutjob against the city of chicago?

So if i have a law degree i can represent bangers even thou im an active police officer?

Sound like a Joe Ferguson down at ethics has an easy case to work on!

Can anyone say conflict of interest? If POs can't defend people in criminal matters in cook county, how the f%ck can an alderman? Yeah, the one who may be approving a city settlement one day.

Nothing surprises me anymore. Which alderthief was it that was defending the shitheads on the South Side? Brookins, maybe? So Burke defending this former alderthief is just par for the course. But did you expect any ethics, legitimacy or common sense to come from the City Council Chamber?

She is a perfect example of the empty heads "they" put in some Aldermanic spots to vote like puppets. Now we know who "they" are.

I have met some Aldermen I thought were a little off. Apparently Alderman Burke feels he has to be involved. Is he afraid she might spill the beans?

Eddie "the slimeball" Burke will show up in court wearing his thousand dollar suit with his "irish flair" . He'll dazzle everyone in court with his wit and banter. After Eddie is through spinning his tales on how Mrs O'Learys cow didn't burn down Chicago all will be forgotten and Sharon will walk out a free woman.

I believe it is properly called "Motion to fix."

And the proper way to work it is for the clout to sit on the lawyer's bench, prominently visible and in front, and to first say something to the judge like "Hi Bill, how's the wife and family? You're up for election again soon, aren't you?" "Well, see you at the slating committee meeting." and then to go sit down. Then the clout whispers nonsense to the lawyer who stands up and files an appearance. The judge gets the idea and officially, the clout was never there.

Dare I ask, did anyone get a cell phone picture of the grey ghost himself in court? Now that would be a good one and only someone who can walk in with a cell phone could get one. Now who could that be? Hmmmm.

He never did a thing for the CPD. He was a copper moments and is collecting a pension from the Job.
Poor Ed cannot make ends meet. At least fast Eddie V took care of people in his ward and got nothing in return. Eddie V was lso good to the police.

I was there on a case and let me tell you Dixon looked like a shell shocked dope fiend. Eyes vacant with no sort of emotion other than confusion when asking "why do I need to go the cermak hospital?" Burke was there shuffling papers trying to look important but ended up looking confused with his little lackey following behind.
Dixon was always a condescending arrogant piece of garbage and made sure she imposed her "Alderman" status in the single encounter I had with her on the street in 10th Dist of her bitching of hypes hanging on her doorstep/office. Have fun in county with your former constituents made up of dope fiends and prostitutes!!

1. the blog is already moderated, so, if a comment gets posted, it's already been read and determined to be within the blog owners' criteria.

2. requiring registration would only reduce participation. is that what you'd prefer?

3. you've got a rather delicate definition for 'hateful bs'. i'd suggest you grow a pair, but that might a bit too rough for your sensitive nature to endure.

4. better for someone to vent their spleen here, rather than kick their dog, even when it appears to you that there's been a 'failure to communicate'.

5. if it's any comfort, and even if it isn't, 'we all die, it's just a question of when', so, take heart, you delicate flower, you.
