There's the Big Bond

  • A Far South Side teenager was ordered held in lieu of $1 million bail Thursday on murder and robbery charges tied to a botched hold up that left his alleged gun-toting accomplice dead.

    Devante Graham was charged with his cohort’s death based on the theory of accountability after an off-duty Cook County sheriff’s sergeant killed a teen when he was robbed by the younger men Monday night at a Citgo gas station in the 700 block of East 103rd, authorities said.
His lawyer is protesting the lack of evidence:
  • Outside of court, Rotunno said prosecutors are relying mostly on circumstantial evidence against her client.

    “All they have is the video we have all seen,” she said.
Um.....ok. Maybe she's hoping George Lucas will show up and insist it's all special effects or something.

The defense didn't really say "all they have is the video we have all seen"?????

and just what evidence does one need for a conviction? The actual video footage of the crime taking place? -Got it!

According to news reports "The suspect is a 17-year-old boy who, accompanied by a lawyer, turned himself in to Chicago police Wednesday afternoon after he saw himself on television when surveillance video footage of the holdup at a Far South Side gas station went viral"

Somebody better tell that defense attorney that a good State's Attorney would construe this scumbag's seeing that he is on video committing a felony and deciding he better turn himself in is an admission! -Admission that he was there and the participant in the crime that is shown.

O.T. FOP Ballot/Election

I just got my FOP ballot today. I know who I am not going to vote for. Look at your FOP booklet with all of those familiar names. Boot every one of those jokers out. Even though Mike Shields failed to send the letter, nothing stopped the other members (like smart ass Richard Aguilar, I hate that fucker! When he worked in 025 he was a smart ass) from sending out the letter. When I asked Rich Aguilar what stopped him from sending the letter his reply was "I don't owe you or anyone else an explanation, have a nice day". He and the others are about as arrogant as they come. They feel that they don't owe us the members any explanations. So vote their ass out!

She has a point. In general, video alone is often not enough for a conviction. But there are two eye witnesses, the victim and the other perp. And he likely left fingerprints behind. And he identified himself as the person on the video when he turned himself in. Good luck to him in PMITA prison.

Billy Dougherty has said they if any of his guys do not get elected from the top of the ticket he will use the six field rep positions to bring them up stairs anyway.

So if you think splitting your ticket to put the best team up stairs at FOP will work Dougherty will negate your vote to just bring up his crew of useless goofs.

If you vote for Dougherty but not Aguliar Billy will just bring him up anyway. That's a D2A pension on top of 160k a year plus $600.00 a month just to show up.

Do not be surprised if he (Dougherty) brings up Mark Donahue when DiMaria retires just after the April general meeting.

P/S. Did you know that these goofs are paying each other supervisor's quarterly on top of 45 minutes a day which the sell back every year just like a captain of police. That's how they are getting the extra 30k a year.

(1) he either intends to kill or do great bodily harm

to that individual or another, or knows that such acts will cause death to that individual or another; or
(2) he knows that such acts create a strong

probability of death or great bodily harm to that individual or another; or

(720 ILCS 5/5-2) (from Ch. 38, par. 5-2)
Sec. 5-2. When accountability exists. A person is legally accountable for the conduct of another when:
(a) having a mental state described by the statute

defining the offense, he or she causes another to perform the conduct, and the other person in fact or by reason of legal incapacity lacks such a mental state;
(b) the statute defining the offense makes him or her

so accountable; or
(c) either before or during the commission of an

offense, and with the intent to promote or facilitate that commission, he or she solicits, aids, abets, agrees, or attempts to aid that other person in the planning or commission of the offense.
When 2 or more persons engage in a common criminal design or agreement, any acts in the furtherance of that common design committed by one party are considered to be the acts of all parties to the common design or agreement and all are equally responsible for the consequences of those further acts. Mere presence at the scene of a crime does not render a person accountable for an offense; a person's presence at the scene of a crime, however, may be considered with other circumstances by the trier of fact when determining accountability.
A person is not so accountable, however, unless the statute defining the offense provides otherwise, if:
(1) he or she is a victim of the offense committed;
(2) the offense is so defined that his or her conduct

was inevitably incident to its commission; or
(3) before the commission of the offense, he or she

terminates his or her effort to promote or facilitate that commission and does one of the following: (i) wholly deprives his or her prior efforts of effectiveness in that commission, (ii) gives timely warning to the proper law enforcement authorities, or (iii) otherwise makes proper effort to prevent the commission of the offense.

I would be trying to plea bargain down to the lowest the ASA would go.

You cannot ignore the video, so take a plea and point out the client came forth so that has to be worth something (in Cook probably more than if we were in DuPage, Lake or whatever).

So throw him a break. ("he's basically a good kid" - well, you have to say that if you are trying to get him a break. I would be saying it if you were up for a bad charge.)

Tell the client, take the year or two and be glad you didn't get 10-25. (I doubt someone of my caliber will be taking his case - try to remember the scene in Trading Places when Billy Ray asked if there was a lawyer in the private Club, no takers.)

This post is only directed to Bill/City Wide and Dean. Bill you probably will lose this election and not be the president of FOP not because you are not worthy to run that office because you are. You will lose because you sold your soul to the devil and forgot what it feels like to be in need, hurt, helpless, stripped, and about to lose your livelihood and forced out on disability. Some time God has to remind us that he is the one that orders our foot steps in life and when you began to step on the officer's that needed your help the most It became clear to the rank and file It was time for a change. When you stepped on us Bill the least you could have done was to take off your shoes. Dean I don't even know where to begin with you. Talk about being snub standing there with your funny little glasses on looking studious and very smart while you try to convince us that disability is not a bad thing for us. Wow as I sat their in disbelief thinking to myself here is a officer who was too ill to sit and earn his check at 376 answering the phones. In stead you went on disability got your 52% and suddenly got well enough to start teaching school. To add insult to injury you stood before officer's who have Cancer,Heart Trouble, Multiple Sclerosis, lupus,Kidney Disease just to name a few illnesses and say I give you my word If you apply for disability you will not be turned down. Well Dean we don't want to go on disability we want to work and earn our check. Then If that wasn't enough you give us a blow to the head and say If you vote for me to become the President I will take a pay cut. Wow a pay cut I guess you should . Lets see 52% in disability, A teacher salary, I would take a cut in salary too. So, I will end this blog by saying this I have study my ballot long and hard I have listen carefully to all of you and I have decided to cast my ballot for Clean Slate. When those guys came to 376 Tom and those guys never said anything negative about City Wide or you Dean. What they talked about was alternate revenue sources to fund our pension, Retiree Healthcare, Rebuilding the lines of communications with FOP members just to name a few things and because Clean slate talked only about fixing the problems I will vote for those guys.

"Somebody better tell that defense attorney that a good State's Attorney would construe this scumbag's seeing that he is on video committing a felony and deciding he better turn himself in is an admission!"

A lot of people construed OJ's running away as an admission of guilt, and a ton of other evidence as pointing to guilt, but evidence means little with the right jury. But there's just one problem - I get the impression the man they tried to rob isn't white, and so I don't think a jury would be manipulatable.

Billy Dougherty has said they if any of his guys do not get elected from the top of the ticket he will use the six field rep positions to bring them up stairs anyway.


And just out of curiosity, what if one of the other officers wins? They wont bring in their own people?

When he came back from his LOA, he was in retread unit 045 for years while doing nothing at the Academy (cause he wasn't staff)

You all are looking at his comments from the police side. Thinking its a confession when in fact it's a shot at the case.

He saying all they have is this video. You can'takr outy face at all. You can't prove its me. I'll turn myself in proclaiming my innocence as mistaken identity and put my fate in hands of cook county jury. In the end........... Not guilty as video evidence can not beyond a reasonable doubt prove the defendant was in fact standing there.

OT. I saw 2 of the FOP Presidents to be come to my unit. I was the only boss on duty. Angelo and his people came up to me and were pleasant and asking questions about how they can proceed. The Clean Slate people came in another, did not introduce themselves, rudely asked me why no one is there to see them. Take it for what its worth.

Inside with 045 for years.... I recall this guy and his side kick Crane they always took the duck around 330ish
How many Coppers had to retread to the Academy from being Deployed with Military or for Medical and then were dumped back to the street on midnights after serving their country
While Others were protected because they knew someone.

This Is the BS of the Dept

Remember when you Vote your FOP Ballot Pick those that are from the ranks that Want and See the Need for change Not the Clouted

Remember your Brothers and Sisters that deployed and had to endure the retread crap of things like 1030 lunches and staying late

Soooo, I hear he was charged with murder...Serious question, what is the statute he was charged under? I'd like to read it verbatim.

2/14/2014 02:46:00 AM

The video establishes this:


(720 ILCS 5/Art. 5 heading)
ARTICLE 5. PARTIES TO CRIME

The video does establish that he was, in fact, there. The statute goes on to say:
"Mere presence at the scene of a crime does not render a person accountable for an offense; a person's presence at the scene of a crime, however, may be considered with other circumstances by the trier of fact when determining accountability."

Unfortunately the resolution of the video (any video at that distance)is not good enough to positively ID an offender. An eye witness id as good as it gets. They don't need the video.

OT Can someone please chime in about the lack of working marked vehicles. I have been on for 25 years now and this is absolutely the worst it has ever been. How can you possibly explain why every district is down 10-15 cars?? NO POOL CARS AVAILABLE!! How do you explain that the third or fourth largest city has a police officers driving around in vehicles with 140,000 miles??

I see one person was nice enough to post the statute. Should have let lame dog-ass look it up for himself.

They say that a person who defends himself has a fool for a client.

In this case I do not think that applies.

I recall one cop, deployed in Afghanistan in the Air Force, and the district got word he was coming home. A district supervisor went to O'Hare to pick him up and when he got home we had his whole street lined with blue & whites with blue lights flashing, coppers at attention. He was in the informal AF uniform. That was a good morning for those who served.

Bryan Bickell was a neighbor of our guy, Bickell was out there too.

Who told you an eye witness is as good as it gets. They are unreliable and many witnesses recant later. Thats why the ASA wants physical evidence.

Have you seen the special employment cars? There is so much paint and decals missing from them that pretty soon you will just have to take the key from car to car until you find one that fits. The hoods roofs and trunks are almost all gray from the paint peeled off and to keep the car going straight you have to keep the wheel turned hard to port.

"A video of the crime does not always end up in a conviction. There are identification problems with any video. The accused will say it is not him and the prosecution has to prove that it is him with independent evidence. Not as easy as it looks."

The goof turned himself in after seeing himself on the video. What, now he's going to say "oh that's not me. I just hired this attorney and got charged with murder for fun?
