Get Rahm on the Stand

  • Lawyers for a woman alleging that Chicago police covered up a 2007 road-rage incident involving an off-duty officer want Mayor Rahm Emanuel to give sworn testimony about the so-called "code of silence" within the Police Department.

    A federal jury in December found that Officer William Szura used excessive force on Nicole Tomaskovic during a traffic altercation on the shoulder of the Stevenson Expressway that turned violent.

    In addition to awarding $260,000 in damages to Tomaskovic for her pain and suffering, the jury ruled that Szura had acted in the scope of his employment as a police officer, allowing separate claims to move forward alleging the city has a de facto policy of covering up the bad actions of officers.

    On Wednesday, Tomaskovic's lawyer filed court papers asking U.S. District Judge Sara Ellis to force Emanuel's deposition about his knowledge of the code of silence.
Get Rahm under oath and start asking about politicians' codes of silence. We can hear the sphincters snapping shut all over DC and downtown.

Or ask him about this..

Right before passage — and without a chance for the public to see the revised ordinance — aldermen voted 25-23 to water down the ethics measure. Stripped out of the ordinance were provisions to allow city Inspector General Joseph Ferguson the right to look at programs on which the city spends hundreds of millions of dollars a year.

Among turf that would be off-limits is workers' compensation, which pays out about $100 million a year. That's controlled by 14th Ward Ald. Edward Burke's Finance Committee.

And Ferguson's prying eyes also would be kept from the $66 million aldermanic menu program, which allots $1.32 million to each of the city's 50 council members to spend on construction projects such as paving streets, putting up lights and replacing sidewalks.

Don't worry, the subpoena will be quashed by the judge. The machine takes care of its own.

Rahm will suddenly be hit by Fedheimers just like his predecessor Shortshanks always was.
Remember Shanks was even able to use the lines "I don't remember what I knew" and "I don't remember what I forgot".
Ah the rotten state of Shitcago

But this month, the Justice Department released two must-read investigations connected to the killing of Brown that filled in blanks, corrected the record and brought sunlight to dark places by revealing ugly practices that institutionalized racism and hardship. They have also forced me to deal with two uncomfortable truths: Brown never surrendered with his hands up, and Wilson was justified in shooting Brown.

All of this talking out of his ass about some non existent "code of silence" has come back to bite him in the ass. Hey Rahm, that pandering you did to the black caucus and media really helped your political career.

You want to end the " code of silence" among out political elites? Then change the eavesdropping law in this state and allow for privately taping all conversations. Do you really think that these scum bags would be making these secret deals if they thought someone had a recorder?

The only code of silence Rahm knows about is his own. No one wants to talk to his dumb ass.

Get Chief E. Johnson and Chief E. Williams on the stand to explain how the top 20 scorers on the Lt's exam were merit hack Sgts. Secret study groups. The Lt's test disappearing and then reappearing. Lawsuit is being filed against the company that gave the exam. All roads lead to Rome or in this case Chief E Willams or Chief Johnson. Nice try. Sorry Papa it's not going to be that easy like you cheated. Accountability you merit crooked cheating scum!!! See you in court bitches.

Rahm has been a disaster for this city. The ghetto lottery is now the norm for all. He has opened up the city coffers to every nuisance law suit. Is it his goal to bankrupt this city? City bonds now below junk bonds? Wants to sell Midway? Refusing to buy back the parking meter fiasco contract after promising to do something about it? Basically allowing the CPD TO IMPLODE. Then throwing them out to the wolfs of the media so as to deflect attention from his incompetence at running this city. Yet he continues to enrich his SUPER PAC donors by giving them city business. Can you say red light cameras,charter schools,junk bonds to name a few. So in fact he has thrown the city under the bus.

He has said it time and time again that he was aware of a code of silence now it's time to fess up Rahmo. Didn't you say an uncle was on the job? Now we know who he can throw under the bus first.

You think Rahm will suddenly tell the truth because he is on the witness stand?
He will say whatever it takes. He knows he will never be charged with perjury.
Look at Hillary Clinton! She broke how many laws with her email server from 2009 to 2013?
Now in 2016, the smart money says she will not even be charged. Why?
Because Hillary is one of the protected class, just like Rahm.
You and I would already be in a prison, serving years.
Hillary and Rahm will never serve time, Hell, they won't even be charged!

I’m not fetal anymore. I think I’m about to become comatose. Boys and girls it has to get worse much worse before it can get better. The ACLU can become the scapegoat in short order if we all do the right thing.

To the children in Saturation North be careful very careful - your becoming the most detested people on the department. The bosses are using you kids as examples - why can’t you do more ISR’s. Your going out on a gangplank and the ACLU, the exempts, the politicians, and the BLM all have a chainsaw to cut your legs off. Be smart not company men. They can’t make all of you meritorious can they?

Rahm is a stinking snake-weasel who manages to slough off
his skin everytime someone gets a firm grasp on his flexible
yet slippery ass...

He has $Billions he's trying to steal from this city so he
feels he doesn't have time for a pedestrian pursuit like
giving sworn testimony in anybody's court.

Court is for suckers, churls and those not smart enough/wealthy enough
to avoid it...

I hate to break it to you boys and girls, but there's a "code of silence" in every profession from McDonald's hamburger flippers to corporate board offices. Nobody wants to be the one to tell on a coworker unless their own ass is in a sling. What's more appropriate is the line drawn in the sand that varies from individual to individual on how much they will tolerate someone's ineptness, corruption or incompetence.

Inspector General has to investigate any cheating on exams, however this may also go criminal, official misconduct, etc. I pray they nail these punks/merit hacks.
