Here's Some Disconnect

Minutes after the State dropped charges against a "poet" whose only talent appears to be staring at people from a distance of three inches, this happened:
  • The Auburn Gresham man who shot an 11-year-old girl in August was aiming for her adult cousin, prosecutors said Wednesday — but there were few outsiders in the courtroom to hear it.

    "Why don't we have a packed courtroom for this?" Cook County Judge Peggy Chiampas demanded to know as Cordero Harris, 27, stood before her Wednesday afternoon on charges of aggravated battery and aggravated assault.

    Minutes earlier, activist Malcolm London — who'd been charged with battery to police following a Laquon McDonald protest Tuesday evening — appeared in the same court room.

    When charges against London were dropped, the myriad activists, protestors and reporters who had flooded Chiampas' courtroom to see London, stood up and left. Chiampas had to pause proceedings to account for the exodus.

    "Why don't we have every single press person in the room for this case? For an 11-year-old child?" Chiampas bellowed Wednesday afternoon. "Why aren't there people protesting outside for this case?"
Because, Your Honor:
  • it isn't a white cop doing the shooting;
  • it doesn't fit the political narrative;
  • only some black lives matter
Anyone ready to have that discussion on race that Eric Holder was so gung-ho about?

Judge PC is one judge who gets it. She is truly fair and impartial. I would bring cases to her any day of the week. Thank you Jodhe for your hard work over the years and your great relationship with the police. You are the Epitome of what the robe stands for

THIS is the story that should be top of the news and posted on the front page of every goddam LIBERAL RAG newspaper out there. THIS is what Moe-prah should be writing articles about. But as you said, SCC, it isn't a white cop and doesn't fit an agenda. It's horseshit is what it is. Absolute horseshit and I make no apologies for that.

here is something Interesting that i found. Death occurred on 20 Oct 2015. Attorney Neslund Settles with the City for 5 million and the settlement also includes that the tape is not to be released and sealed (according to Mary Mitchell article on 17 April 15). After the settlement on 01 Aug 15 a freelance Reporter with Ties to Loevy & Loevy file FOIA with the court.Jeffery Neslund went in and did a money grad fast. And then Loevy & Loevy went after the tape Because Father Wonderboy was pushing his hate agenga on the police. Father Wonderboy And Loevy & Loevy are not strangers to each other. Father Wonderboy has sent his Community so called victims to Loevy & Loevy for lawsuits against the city for police brutality cases. Gets even more interesting meanwhile Father Wonderboy Endorses the Mayor and wasnt worried about the McDonald Case at all. The black Alderman Caucas Never Questioned the case or asked to see the Video. Everyone knew this was a bad shoot and no one ever Questioned it or Investigated the case. The black Civil Rights leaders never Questioned it until the tape was released. Then every social group including Father Wonder boy came out hard. Meanwhile the Mayor is Elected again and according to his past Comment 'NEVER LET A CRISIS GO TO WASTE'.HE ISNT ANYWHERE TO BE FOUND He throws everyone under the bus. Anita Alverez for not Endorsing him. McCarthy being the fall guy. All the Alderman because they are suck asses and cant think or ask questions just vote. This was HUGE POWERGRAB AND MONEY GRAB. Everyone won accept the poor beat cop who will be sent to prison for doing the job he was suppose to do.

Bless Judge Chiampas.

Here's hoping she continues speaking up, and others follow. What is happening is regarding the media coverage and source of violence in this city is outrageous.

Champis is one of the good ones, no doubt about it. I'm sure she hated letting London off the hook, but that wasn't her call. She'll sign your search warrant at the drop of a hat and always treats the police fair. She's equally gruff with everyone, but she's good people.

And the shooter of the 11 year old wasn't released. I guess he doesn't know Ald Sawyer well enough.

I am sure that Chiampas knows full well why the court room wasn't full of activists and reporters. She is probably just venting her frustrations like the rest of us.

Could I, or the FOP file a FOIA request on the poet to find out how much government funds he receives, maybe none but if it's our money I want to know. If you have the energy to punch a cop you can go to work and pay your own way. People need to know where our tax dollars have gone. It's not about embarrassing someone, it's about accountability. Next St. Sabrina.

Maybe we should make the Sunday checks out to The Chicago Police Chaplain's Ministry. After all, Father Brandt was out on the front lines with us. Rahm is opening charter schools all the time. What would happen if he opened a few in select neighborhoods only for the children of cops, firefighters and other city, county and state workers. We pull our kids out of those over priced parochial schools and into schools we are paying for anyway. Then the Cardinal will scream at Pfleiger and kick him into a storefront church. Why not, we pay our taxes for the schools.

This could be a great thing if the student schedules could be geared and adjusted so kids could be off when parent have furloughs.

P.S. Catholic Charities is gearing up to take large numbers of Middle Eastern refugees. Just like they did with those Mexican and Central American teenagers last year. Where are they now? We are losing our country.

These jagoffs are being financed by George Soros. He is a Socialist, Marxist and a huge contributor to Hillary and the Democratic party. Also no support for the CTU. Personally even though I am a union guy, I hope Rahm breaks their union. To all of you coppers out there who have Chicago Public School teachers in your family I hope you have talked to them and let them know how the rest of us feel about the actions of Karen Lewis. Also can any of you tell me how this radical biotch managed to take over the union and why teachers reelect her.

"Everyone knows this was a bad shoot"

Umm -Who is everyone? When the squad car is pulling up, the subject is running with his hands in his pockets. As the squad passes and officer exits his vehicle, the subject slows down, walking on an angle and extends his arm out with a shiny object in his hand.
Are you saying that you cannot believe from the perspective of the officer, that during those seconds that the officer reasonably believed his life was threatened.

Sure - tactically, the whole thing sucked and this entire incident probably could have played out much differently. The 16 shots was very ugly and unnecessary. But once deadly force was justified, then the lethal shooting by the officer was justified. If the subject was down and the officer waited several minutes and then resumed shooting, then in that case - clearly there would be no justification for continuing to shoot. Here - the officer emptied his gun in a continuous action, probably not even realizing that he did. All the facts and circumstance have to be taken into account. The adrenaline and stress level of the officer during those 15 seconds, the information that the officer had while responding to the scene of the subject acting irrationally and slashing tires with a knife, what the scene looked like from his physical location, etc.

The Feds and State had this case for quite some time. I believe that is evidence that they themselves believed that the officer was justified, despite how tactically shitty the incident played out. Murder or any other charge is not appropriate and it seems quite obvious that Alvarez charged this officer "for the good of the public," just as she released the protester that punched the cop in the face " for the good of the public."
Now - if there was a statute regarding how many bullets was appropriate to use in deadly force incidents and this officer exceeded that - then fine charge him with that - but we all know there is no such statute.

All I can say officers is - please protect yourselves, your partners and your families - do the bare minimum, because if something happens that looks ugly, you are going to be thrown under the bus "for the good of the people." Please heed this warning!

My daughter has 2.5 years left of Catholic HS, I wish there was another option, but she is not getting into Payton, Northside, etc. After she graduates I will probably donate money to her school and my son's, but nothing to the parish, and above. Heck it seems to be time to find a new religion, because I really don't feel like I belong anymore.

If Rahm thinks she will run for Mayor he will set her up like Shortshanks did Miriam Santos. We need all the good judges we can get.

Register and Vote. Make your Sunday contribution checks out to The Chicago Police Chaplain's Ministry.

Headline I want to see


Says he wants to devote more time to his advocacy from a neighborhood office.

Cardinal Cubich names successor to Pastor St. Sabina

(Translation, the Cardinal got fed up and got calls from wealthy donors as well as ordinary Chicagoans and kicked the SOB out the door.)
