Preib Destroys the Media Again

  • It was the worst crime scene many detectives had ever seen. A building had caught fire on the south side of Chicago in January of 1987. Seven people trapped inside died, including a mother and her child on the third floor. More than a dozen other people were seriously injured, some with burns and some with broken bones from jumping out of windows to escape the flames.

    There were several ambulances, fire engines everywhere. Neighbors came out with blankets and shoes. Police arrived. Eventually, many of them relocated to the hospitals and the morgue to begin collecting evidence and statements.

    In short time, investigators determined the fire was an arson. An unknown offender had poured accelerant outside apartment 301, the dwelling where the woman and her child died. The seven people who died really didn’t have a chance. They died cornered by the flames fast approaching them.
A subhuman scumbag named Hobley was eventually tried, convicted and sent to Death Row.

Unfortunately for society, he happened to be the subject of numerous slanted articles by The Reader creating a conspiracy that couldn't possibly have existed. This attracted the interest of the lying perjurers at Northwestern University and soon-to-be-convicted governor Ryan.

Unfortunately for Chicago taxpayers, the city rolled over and gave Hobley $6 million in the face of overwhelming evidence that he burned seven people to death.

Go read it all. Taxpayers fleeced to the tune of millions over and over, the politicians rallying to demean the police, the media advancing lies and the FOP silent.

One of the lawyers for Hobley, Kurt Feuer of Loevy and Loevy, does a really poor job of vetting his clients. He believes whatever shit they tell him and runs with it as god's gospel truth. I know, I saw him in action. You know how these shithead defendants make up their fantastic stories and most cops just nod their head knowing shithead is lying through his teeth?

Not Kurt Feuer, he believes the shit they tell him and runs with it and passionately presents it in court, eventually getting other people, including juries, to sign on to his incredible bullshit stories.

A law school education plus a reasonable intellect and command of the English language are terribly dangerous tools in the hands of a fool. Kurt Feuer is such a fool.

The public only needs soldiers when their country is being invaded. The rest of the time soldiers are baby killers etc. A similar situation for police. Things are going to have to get a lot worse before they "the public" really wants/needs us...and after things return to normal,"if" ,they will hate us again. Ticket the hell out of them and raise the funds that should be put back into our pension. Society has lost in America as long as these criminals are not sentenced accordingly and the public doesnt vote accordingly. Take care of your own. A slow down doesnt help us. Grab a head and write 10 parkers a day. Theres a quota for yah.

So...
Where are all the people doing pantyless cartwheels and cheering while policemen were being marched to the gallows behind the foul shit those dirty bastards at N.U. and Chicago local media have been doing to Chicago Policemen over the last 30 some years.

"You Coppers are under-worked and over-paid as it is, so STFU and go find something to do... You knew it would be like this when you took the job so stop complaining and thinking so much of yourselves."

Please Dear God.
We want to see the bastards twisting in the wind at the end of a rope for what they've done to Policing and Policemen in Chicago.

Sic 'em Marty!
If we were to ever cross paths,

Why is it that a Chicago Police Patrolman is doing the dirty work for our "Union"? PO Marty Prieb is patrolman, working in a district on afternoon's. Nothing more, nothing less. He along with Bill Crawford, the former Chicago Tribune reporter, ARE THE ONLY PERSONS FIGHTING FOR THE MEN AND WOMEN OF OUR DEPARTMENT. Why hasn't the FOP taken up our FIGHT? Isn't standing up for the men and woman of the department their responsibility? In this recent blog essay, Prieb again shows what is wrong with our legal system. Offenders who are GUILTY OF MURDERS, GET OUT OF JAIL OVER FALSE PRETENSES, SUE THE CITY AND RECEIVE MONIES FOR THEIR CRIMES. The City settles and hands out our tax money to societies scumbags. Why doesn't the City fight these law suites? Didn't the city learn in the Anthony Porter law suite that it can go to court, review the actions of the police officers and/or detectives and WIN THESE CASES? The bigger question is WHY HAS THE FOP FOR YEARS SAT ON THE THE SIDELINES AND DONE NOTHING? I realize the City does supply a lawyer for the Officers when their is a law suite, however this lawyer would be given anyhow because the complainants go after the City. This is where the big monies and payouts come from. The FOP should be the leader in this fight. The FOP should be writing Priebs essays and having them published in our newspapers. Every time the City is about to SETTLE a case as they are doing in several cases today, the FOP should bring bus loads of off duty officers to protest these settlements. I am going to take this one step further, I believe that the FOP SHOULD PAY OFF DUTY OFFICERS TO GO AND PROTEST. Other unions do,why cant ours. This is getting out of hand. The way things are going if the FOP does not do something I got a feeling that Police Officers are going to start paying out of their own pockets in some of these settlements. If the FOP does not do something then maybe there should be another recall of the President for FAILURE TO REPRESENT THE MEN AND WOMAN OF OUR DEPARTMENT. Officer Prieb, the men and woman of this department are proud of you, KEEP UP THE GOOD WORK!!!!!!!!

(OT) Something to think about, was at a trial MVA they asked the girl in open court if she was on her cell phone at the time she rear ended vehicle she said no. She was asked if she was texting at the time of crash she said no! The attorney then showed her cell phone records which he got from phone company he asked her to look at time of accident, she looked and said "ok I was texting back and forth with my friends." Then the attorney asked her actions during the crash beside texting what was her speed? etc.

Want to talk big brother the attorney produced records for her vehicle that showed weather she was wearing seat belts,speed at crash,when brakes were applied,airbag deployment speed, and a lot more. This intrigued me Google auto "black box" here is example before they got more sophisticated

Fucking Libtards!

Every single one of them is morally bankrupt. A Madam of a New Orleans Whorehouse has more scruples than any of those so-called 'journalists'. The lies those assholes perpetuate should have been nipped in the bud about twenty years ago or so when they started with the bullshit of: "their version of the truth". Seriously, how can there be any version of some events other than 'the truth'. Something is either true, or not true, it cannot be both. Nor can it be half true, somewhat true, a little true, or 'in their opinion true' -- the goddamn assholes.

Back to my point -- Thanks to these lowlife 'journalists', and a school system -- forget any 'education' -- that's good for shit, youngsters today swallow these lies Hook--Line--and Sinker. That **ignorance** is nowhere more apparent than in the comment section of any article involving the Police and some 'innocent victim', aka: the criminal.

You can literally bet the rent that somewhere in the first ten comments some brain-washed 'Hipster Kid', or drug-addled old Hippie, will unequivocally claim that the 'victim' -- aka: the arrested and/or charged criminal -- is innocent and was beaten, tortured, coerced, etc, etc, into making a false confession.

In Chicago, they've reached this conclusion of innocence by previously reading or hearing from their friends these three words: 'Detective Jon Burge'. And nothing, and I mean nothing, will convince them otherwise. No matter what the crime is, as far as they're concerned it's the Chicago Police Department that's 'guilty'.

[an aside: Burge's name will pop up every now and then in articles from places like NYC, LA, SF, and Seatlle in regards to alleged police brutality.]

Claiming race as a motive in anything done by Burge et al is the most ludicrous idea ever put forth. The victims in these cases were black and offenders black. A racist cop would simply ignore the whole thing as "N" nonsense and let the victims people find justice at the barrel of a gun or a weapon of choice.

NEWSFLASH!

In order to get the Police and Police Department they want, the city is making these settlements to send the media and the public an oft repeated message that The Police, are in fact the problem in Chicago...

There is more incentive to reward the fambly and litter-mates of murdering mutts than say making whole our deliberately diminished (and not by our hand) pension fund.

The only recourse is for The Policeman to look inward and have a total change of heart about being civic minded and willingly making the sacrifices this city has gotten way too fat and comfortable with him making.

Piss on any notion of doing anything for the good of society if society sees fit to turn on you and embrace what they used to demand Policemen defend them from.

Let the criminals do what they do.
Since Policing has been walked to
a stand-still by design and you're
proscribed from actively hunting
down criminals in this hate the
Police era anyway.

For you young-uns...

Be mercenary.
Have no life-long loyalty to
any city or Police Department.

Always look to trade-up.
Having community ties is
the kiss of death to your
freedom, well being and money making
ability.

Invest in yourselves and obtain professional
degrees and certifications.

If you're going to own property/have a permanent
home somewhere, invest in a "free state," instead
of a modern era "slave state" like Illinois and avoid
any democrat run urban conclave or any other such
place with liberals/progressives in charge.

Especially avoid places with happy shiny people who
are unable to get through moments in time without
brightly chiming in about "let's make some rules."

That m/fer right there is a "Progressive."
Shun him/her and drive them away from the
company of civilized men to starve to death
since all they'll manage to have to eat are "rules."

They're worthless and unable to eat/breed
without having other people to attach themselves to.

Anyhoo...

The Policeman should turn feral and become a mercenary.

Everybody will benefit.
Right?

WHOOOO!

When Policemen start actively talking about shredding the social contract at THEIR level near the bottom of the pyramid instead of "doing the right thing" and continuing trying to prop it up, what will the joyful haters have to stand on?

Viva Hate.
Let every living ass be forced to fend
for itself.

It would be a terrible yet beautiful and poetic thing if The Police turned their backs and let all the screams for "somebody" to do "something" go unanswered.

"We don't understand why you guys are so full of anger and hatred! Aren't there rules against that?"

Facts that are ignored is the fact that the Commander of Area 2 over Burge was black ( Deas) the superintendent of police and the mayor of the city were all black during most of these events. NOw, the city and Rahm plan a permanent memorial in the city to victims of police torture, and free tuition to the children and grandchildren of the victims of police torture. The topic will not be taught to all school children in the city. How about that?

Finding millions more of give away taxpayers money, but no money for pensions! Insanity total insanity!

The proposal, negotiated with a key plaintiff's attorney and supported by Mayor Rahm Emanuel, would offer free city college tuition for victims and their families, free counseling for psychological issues and substance abuse as well as other assistance to more than 50 potential victims. The city would also issue a formal apology, create a permanent memorial recognizing the victims and ensure that eighth- and 10th-grade students attending Chicago Public Schools would be taught about the Burge case and its brutal legacy, cementing the scandal's role in city history.

But as much as the proposal seeks to end a painful, controversial era — Emanuel said it would "close this book, the Burge book on the city's history" — it is unlikely to stanch the flow of torture claims from victims. A Loyola University Chicago law school dean appointed by a Cook County judge has identified some 20 additional cases in which inmates may have been Burge victims. Other inmates who have made torture claims continue to fight to overturn convictions and win their freedom. And one lawsuit over the torture is pending.

Already, this stubborn scandal has cost taxpayers about $100 million in lawsuit settlements, judgments and other legal costs, according to lawyers.

"It brings it much closer to closure, especially from the city's point of view," said Flint Taylor, an attorney who has been pursuing the torture issue for decades and was one of the lawyers who negotiated the reparations package. "But it's not done and over."

If Angelo wanted to make Rahm happy the Fop would have endorsed the Rahmulan.

Remember that the only person to endorse Rahm was the de facto leader of the City-Wide team.

Remember the Fourth Reich will raise it's ugly head in two years during the next FOP election.

Dean Angelo had the perfect storm which resulted in his election . The failure to send in the letter doomed Dougherty but also most voters has grown tired if the infighting that had become the norm up in the office .
Dean Angelo was able to win because he had active police officers who worked very hard to convince th that Dean was the right person for the job.
But before the runoff Dean turned his back on several people and made a deal with the Bella regime which included Tom McDonagh . Dean sold out that day to ensure victory for himself . Very sad thing to see but hey he's a politician not a LEADER ! Dean is slow moving and non - controversial which are two attributes along with no loyalty will cost him in the next election . He will try to make amends but it is already too late ! Dean you made your bed now go lay in it !!!
