Next Up....

  • Opening statements will begin Tuesday in the trial of a Chicago police commander accused of excessive force.

    Prosecutors say Glenn Evans shoved the barrel of a gun in the mouth of a suspect to coerce a confession in January 2013.
Any bets on how fast this one tanks? The media played fast and loose with the facts, and the "victim" can't even identify any of the officers supposedly on scene, including the guy allegedly sticking a gun in his mouth.

Glenn Evans is an amazing officer. I worked with him in 011 for the short time he was there and the shitheads on the street started to become scared when they saw him. He wouldn't allow half the crap that's going on now under West command. I think his type of policing is what the ghettos need and truly citizens living in white bread America would never understand his methods. Can't wait to see commander Evans back on the street doing a great job cleaning the street Society want the police to clean up without wondering how that will happen

Funny how the head of IPRA just happens to resign right before this trial is to begin and just in front of the announced DOJ investigation into IPRA and the CPD.


And Asst Dep Chief of Detectives Dean Andrews resigns on the same day???

The guy who made the Daley nephew, Richard Vanecko / David Koschman investigative file disappear from the Detective Division while he was the Area Lieutenant of Detectives while the CPD handling of the case was being investigated???

The same guy that was rewarded for that with that lofty promotion to Deputy Chief???


Wow! It kind of reminds me of working in the ghetto when you would step in to take a report, and as soon as they turned on the light in the kitchen, all of the cockroaches would scurry along the walls and try to avoid being seen ! ! !

Now if Evans was white? Oh, the riotous actions that would follow.

Another waste of a" political anti-police witch hunt" smart judge will toss it, Evans is not stupid gold star holders hope he gets lawyers that help him remember the bosses that kicked him down the stairs, you took 1 of your own members of that elite club wiped your shoes on his back not he will rise like the dinosaurs in Jurassic park, and devour financially all who have caused this mayhem in his life! "If the story doesn't fit, you must acquit!"

Oh and all the back pay and restoring him back to command ranks possible maybe probable 🙄

The commander is black. The media don't care about that. Bring back something on Burge.

Not to mention that no less than three aldermen, all of whom also are part of the black caucus, publicly supported Evans last year at meetings in Chatham and Park Manor, held after Cmdr. Evans was moved from the 3rd District, suspended, and all that followed.
A huge number of community members AND these aldermen demanded that McCarthy reinstate Evans because his work made their neighborhoods safer. Even Rev. Corey Brooks, this past October, said that despite his tough tactics, Evans 'got a lot of the gun violence under control'.
Anyone in the media going to ask these council members about that support or does that muddy the waters too much for them to bother reporting? Rhetorical, naturally.

Good luck Glenn. Thank you for all you have done. Society is lost when strong men see wrong and do nothing, You tried to do your part. None of your persecutors would even dare climb into the ring and grab the bull by the tail. its easy to sit on the sidelines, they dont have to get dirty. No matter the outcome you have my respect for trying to stop the carnage that has taken the lives of thousands of black youths in Chicago. Sleep easy brother God is on your side. Class of 1986

IPRA boss did not resign. Rahm already had someone lined up for the job within twelve hours? No. He was fired and his replacement had already accepted the job and was prepped and ready for the round of morning press conferences.

First I want to know who is paying for Evans legal fees?
Since the charge is Official Misconduct. Does the Lieutenants Union pay for it?
Or is the City/Department Defending him?

I ask since my union FOP never returns calls.

Evans will be acquitted of all charges this week. Take it to the bank.

I dislike about 90% of the people within this department, but Evans leads the way for the 10% I approve of. He is the type we should want for the next Supe. If we were lucky, he'd have gotten the job of interim Superintendent instead of Escalante, but unfortunately he's been wrapped up and forced to deal with all of this. His handshake routine with the reporters at 26th/Cal this morning was priceless!

They return mine. And why would they care about Evans? That's why the phone there is always busy. Because they handle phone from morons all day. Did you ever get thru to Aguilar? He hated coppers. That's why their were boxes of grievances he never worked on. He was just there to play hockey with Dougherty and Bailey.

Nope. If you read some of the other posters, he's not causing riots just because he's black. It's funny that he is a perfect of some of those community policing examples, namely that when you have a good relationship with a neighborhood they may play the difference when you get in a jam. All of those community meetings with McCarthy when the residents in 003 were demanding Evans back, the decreases in violent crime and all the other rah rah sis boom bah were most of what you heard about him in the news until this case. The accusation of him battering the utility guy never got much airplay.
