Who's This Jagoff?

A headcase without a question....oh, and he's ex-CPD:
  • Former Chicago police Officer Joseph Battaglia, of southwest suburban Oak Lawn, was charged Sunday with two counts of disorderly conduct after threats were made to harm two key officials investigating the death of Fox Lake police Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz, officials said.

    The 54-year-old Battaglia, who is being held in the Lake County Jail after being assigned a $100,000 bond, is accused of calling Lake County Coroner Thomas Rudd's office Friday and threatening Rudd and George Filenko, who heads the Lake County Major Crime Task Force, officials said.

    Battaglia described himself as a retired police officer. He was denied a public defender because of his police pension, the judge said.

    Battaglia allegedly threatened to harm Rudd and Filenko unless they declare Gliniewicz's death a suicide.
If we aren't mistaken, this is the troll who was spamming the crap out of our comment sections last week with all sorts of bizarre accusations based on nothing but unsubstantiated rumors that started up regarding the death of Lt. Gliniewicz. Everything we caught, we deleted. And while we certainly hope that speculation is exactly that, the investigation should continue to go forward and reach a conclusion based on facts and evidence, not the ramblings of the coroner and certainly not over this moron's ramblings.

If this goof is off on disability his pension is gone if/when he gets convicted on these felony charges. This dude apparently had way too much free time on his hands.

This man advertises that he works for Verdolyak, and proud of it. At Fop meetings, he tells everyone he can that he should be the political guy for our union. Shields and Dean fear this man at meetings because he is an idiot who talks before he thinks.

That's not what happened. Some young hot chick got pinched by narcotics and said she knew a cop who sells weed. Of course Joey was thinking with his dick and told this chick he could get her weed. He never sold weed or bought weed from anyone. Joey is a goof and his mouth gets him in trouble, but he's harmless. I'm sure some meds wouldn't hurt though.

I worked midnights with the lad, about 20 years ago. Strangest copper I've ever worked with. A true wing nut, everything was a conspiracy, they were after him. Don't think he ever wrote a ticket or made an arrest. Always stepping on his dick and a family connection always bailing his ass out. He should have never got out of the academy.

As indicated by SCC, it's apparent he regularly reviews this site.
Joe, get help. Your actions are more than being just a loudmouth.
You insulted all of law enforcement and embarrassed our department aside from providing more fodder for the left wing media.
Plea, take your punishment, shut up and seek help.
Then make a sincere formal public apology to all involved including the family, friends and all of law enforcement.
While you can never make this right, at this time, that is the right thing to do.

And now for the other type of police officers, I had surgery yesterday and my nurse was a former PO. You have the nitwits that embarrass us all and then you have the dear blessed angels who do the best they can on a daily basis without looking for credit and save lives every day. Dear sweet nurse, thanks for making a rough day as easy and comfortable as possible for me. Bless you, your husband has a keeper.

Joe never lived in Bridgeport although he fashioned himself an associate of the crew down there. I have known him since he came on the job. His father was a CPA, never in a crew, and a very nice, quiet man and his mother was very sweet. He and his partner were on that same team in 015 that were arrested for corruption but he and his partner were incorruptible. When his father passed away I noticed his behavior gradually changing. Yes he has always been a loud mouth but after seeing this last incident he is obviously sick. This job takes its toll on all of us in varying degrees and it appears he may be suffering a breakdown. I get it, I am pissed at him also. But we have enough jag offs from all corners taking their shots (sometimes literally) at us. Let's not use both feet on him.

I have known Joe since he was a rookie. You
could get ten coppers who know and all
would tell the judge the same thing. He is
harmless and can't help himself. He could
not handle the stresses of the job. Joe is
not a bad person, just should not have been
hired, but don't blame him for taking the job.
After the investigation is concluded , Lake
County won't be real anxious to prosecute him.
He will plea to a misdemeanor and go about
his business of being crazy. Good luck Joe.

Old 2nd watch Lt in 019 at Bel/West was comical. He literally had no morals not ethics. The exact opposite of what you'd expect a Lt to be. He had a chunky little guy named Juan that did his bidding in exchange for management 2nd watch.
It's good world where the bald fucker helps out the fat fucker.
