Pfleger Loses in Court

Pfather Pfleger and his ilk grab all the headlines when they're marching, shrieking and filing lawsuits. But we don't seem to ever see the results of the court battles. Probably because there aren't any (article brought to our attention via our NRA lobbyist Todd Vandermyde):
  • A Cook County judge has abruptly ended an attempt by a coalition of Chicago community activists, including Fr. Michael Pfleger and others, to use an Illinois civil rights law to force suburban communities to more stringently regulate gun shops operating within their borders, who the activists say are responsible for a disproportionate share of the firearms used by criminals and gangbangers to terrorize Chicago’s poorest neighborhoods.

    On Feb. 25, Cook County Circuit Judge Franklin Ulysses Valderrama dismissed in its entirety the complaint brought against the villages of Riverdale and Lincolnwood by a group known as The Coalition for Safe Chicago Communities. Named plaintiffs in the action also included Pfleger, the Rev. Robin Hood, Louvenia Hood, Annette Nance-Holt and Pamela Montgomery-Bosley.

    The lawsuit, filed in July 2015 alleged the villages, located in suburban Cook County, allowed gun shops in their communities to “sell guns in a manner that disproportionately jeopardizes the lives of African-Americans, causes mental anguish and distress and diminishes the value of their homes and other property.” This, the activists’ complaint said, violated the Illinois Civil Rights Act of 2003, which forbids municipalities from engaging in policies that create have a disparate negative impact on racial and ethnic minorities.
What a horseshit lawsuit. The article actually names the ambulance chasers:
  • The Coalition was represented in the action by attorneys with the firm of Despres, Schwartz & Geoghegan, of Chicago.
Sure would be interesting to see if this firm made any particular political contributions.

I wonder what he would say about these youths and a gun shop in Texas. Excellent viewing.

Sooooooooo now it seems to me that part of judicial system allows the parties sued to recoup their legal fees from said nuisance lawsuit. So lets hope that is the case here especially Riverdale which is is not well off financially anyway. And if Phake Phather Mikey is named he will be personally responsibility "something him or his Phlock no nothing about" for said legal fees. And won't that be grand , guess it's time to write and call ole Blase and ask if any Archdiocese money ends up being used to "assist" St. Sabina in it's coming financial crisis caused by it's "Pastor" and if so would that qualify as Misuse ? Got to keep the letters calls and e-mails going to Cupich so he gets the message that the people who really support the Church don't support Mikkey the Phake Phather and it's time to grab the chocker collar and give it a bing yank...

That lawsuit was DISMISSED in its entirety. Dues money squandered by the munchkin prez. FOP looking foolish. Again.

The Reverend Robin Hood? Really? That has to be a pseudonym.

Shore Galleries in Lincolnwood...I've been there. Bought two shotguns from them and had a
third one (gift from eldest son) shipped there from out of state. So far I have managed to
refrain from shooting anyone, of any color, in any neighborhood.

If Black Lives Matter, maybe Pfleger and Hood should let their conegregations and neighbors know, and tell *them* to put the damn guns down.

They are tryign to jam these gun stores in between a rock and a hard place using SJW race baiting. "Look these gun stores are selling to minorities who go and kill each other" or "These racist gun stores won't sell to people because of their skin color."

Someone really needs to file with the IRS that this sort of thing is politically motivated and St. Sabina needs to be paying taxes.

I certainly hope that the cities put them on the hook for the legal bills and that Lyons can back out even though they chickened out.

Retired Riverdale PD. Years ago at one of Phaker's first marches the Chuck's guys dumped large bags of popcorn all over the roof. Large flocks of gulls came and the guys continuously shooed the birds away, causing them to shit profusely onto the marchers as they did so. Fucking brought tears to our eyes it was so funny. The last one I worked last year, JJ was looking like the walking dead. Useless, pandering POS'S, both of them. Be safe brothers.

Paul Harvey used to say here is the rest of the story. The wiretapping law was found unconstitutional so citizens with cell phone could tape the police. He was not found innocent. I think a civil case will be filed soon. I know a couple of the victims. They are still very pissed. But he also lied for over two years and as posted here in other threads he gave himself up the night before by using the same computer. Not very smart. He also threw a copper under the bus at a general meeting too. That’s something this group running FOP never charged him with either.

This was the preliminary bout anyway. The good stuff starts as soon as the Shields suit ends this summer. Heads are going to roll in Springfield and Chicago both.

Saw the post by Jim Moriarity complaining about the FOP paying for a suit / investigation to throw Jim Moriarity out of the Union for his illegal actions. Sorry Jim but you deserve to have your ass thrown out of the Union. As far as the " allegedly" part goes, "Dim Jim" had his cousin represent "John Doe" when the Union tried to trace the IP address and the guilty party refused to let the Internet provider release his name. His cousin represented the guilty party, "whoever that might be". The night before the Board Meeting to vote on his innocence or guilt , "Dim Jim" sent out a threatening email to the Board telling that that although he did not tape the Private Board Hearing, even if he did it is no longer illegal since the law has changed and then said it was his civic duty to tape that meeting and put it on YouTube , I mean if he would have done so. But old "Dim Jim"wasn't exactly the brightest bulb on the Christmas Tree (contrary to his "linkin" page where he claims to be an expert on covert duvet lance and wiretapping) when he sent the email to the board members from the same IP address that uploaded the
The private meeting to You Tube. You can't make this shit up. Also FOP was told that that same IP address had previously been used to complain to IAD about more than ten Chicago Police Officers. Great Fraternal Member isn't he. If ever there was a member who needed to be tossed out on his ear it is Jim Moriarity. He was removed from his Office as Sgt at Arms and banned from this Union but what really will hurt him, the Union is going to file suit to recover the legal fees the lodge had to spend on an audiologist and several legal actions that proved his guilt. Then this big asshole tells Board members, "you better be careful how you vote on this" !
Well this Board evidently wasn't to afraid because with the exception of his former City Wide Team members, all Board Members voted to expel him from the Union. When "DimJim" protested the imposition of the legal fees , Dean told him,"Ok Jim, we will drop the legal fees against you if you name your coconspirators." Jim declined. Good Luck in your new endeavors Jim and good riddance .

Uh.....if that's the case shouldn't father Flakey and 'his band of merry men' have filed the lawsuit against...Tiny Dancer & the City of Chicago??

It should be an easy win for the 'activists'. It's well documented that almost from day one of his first term that the Nine Digit Midget cut the size of the Chicago Police Dept. And if fewer cops & police cars on the streets don't have a 'disparate negative impact on racial and ethnic minorities', then NOTHING DOES. Hell, his new deal with the ACLU increased that 'disparate negative impact' There should be more than an even shot that the Court could make Rahm increase the level back to 1,500 sworn police. And KEEP that level.

A lawsuit on those grounds makes more sense than trying to sue a Village that you don't even live in, to compel them to change their laws to comply with some 'study' made on and about Chicago's crime.

The Despres firm is a fairly well-established reform (you would say "liberal") law firm, founded by the late former alderman, Leon Despres. You old-timers would remember Despres. He and Bill Singer would get up on the Council floor and denounce something old man Daley had put before the Rubber Stamp, which is what we called the Council in those days, and Daley would turn off their microphones. From time to time I see this blog calling for aldermen to act in the way that Despres and Singer, and later Oberman, and now Waguespack, did on a daily basis. I doubt the Despres firm got paid to sue on behalf of the Coalition. Criticize them all you want, but the city is better off with them than without.

The "lawsuit" was targeting the villages & cities with gun shops period. A futile attempt to interfere with legal & federally licensed business' and to try and influence these places to put pressure on these family owned business' to move or close.

It was doomed to fail from the start and was used as a scare tactic and did not succeed and I hope the villages ask the court for their rightful relief from the legal fees encountered to defend themselves. And to make Phuckstick pay out of his pocket since he is personally named. And since he is, there is a great opportunity to get Cupich's attention and put some real pressure on this asshole to stop his nonsense in the name of the church. He is no longer a pastor and more a "political activist" and "community organizer" and should be treated as such with regards to income and tax shelters And finally shame on St Barnabas for inviting this POS to speak in the heart of a part of the city populated by hard working families who contribute to the Church and pay the tuition so their kids can get a quality education thru the church schools

Please send a letter to the Chicago diocese asking why Phelger is the only "priest" who isn't required to move to different parishes. I have one drafted asking that question and asking if he is a Catholic priest or a wanna be politician who's disobedience to the church is so flagrant. If he doesn't have to move then I would like our prior priest back. I have stated that if they do not plan on making him obey the church then they should remove me from their mailing list for their annual appeal for money that I get every month. It is time to put this self serving disgrace of a "priest" where he needs to be. Which is in obedience to the church he swore to serve and obey.
