Nice Job Dart

First, Dart releases a couple of videos of attacks on guards in the jail so he can be "transparent." Then he refers a video to Anita for prosecution. Anita, actually doing her job at this point, watches the entire video, which shows the inmate attacking the guard, and correctly refuses to prosecute the guard for defending himself.

Now, a law firm is suing on behalf of the inmate, who it should be noted, suffered no injuries and refused all medical assistance, for an incident that occurred two-and-one-half years ago:
  • A former Cook County inmate has filed a lawsuit over a beating he suffered on July 4, 2013, which appears to show him not resisting an officer while he is punched and kicked repeatedly in the head.The lawsuit claims the conduct of the officer's actions against inmate Randall Brown were "unnecessary and an unreasonable use of force."

    The lawsuit lists Cook County Correctional Officer Branden Norise, Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart and Cook County as the defendants.

    "Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart referred the incident to State's Attorney Anita Alvarez's office for criminal prosecution. Anita Alvarez, like she has so often done in the past, refused to prosecute a member of law enforcement that blatantly committed acts of criminal and civil misconduct against a resident of Cook County," a statement from The Blake Horwitz Law Firm read.
Quoted extensively in the lawsuit? Sheriff Tom Dart.

Footing the bill? Cook County taxpayers.

Anyone wondering what sort of percentage Dart is gong to get as a "finders fee"?

Rolled under the bus--- just in terms of legal bullshit and court. It's cheaper to give that asshole 10 grand rather than fight it out and rack up 100 grand in lawyer fees and win.

Just settle it and move on.
Don't bother to fight it, it is not like another thirty inmates will then do the same thing.

While you're at it, fire the deputies involved, that'll teach them how to do their job.

Dart wants to feel sorry for a loud mouthed, felon piece of garbage, who can't follow simple directions as in "shut the fuck up", is probably the reason the fight started in the first place!

No ISR's from me!

I'm going to take a wild stab in the dark and say that Dart was probably never a guard at 26th & Cal? How could he act this way if he was. His men should lock him in gen pop by himself.

What do you mean "now Dart too"? Dart is probably the most incompetent Sheriff in the entire nation and is also anti-police. Where have you been the last few years? Dart is not,has not and never will be a law enforcement professional. He is a political hack of the highest degree and always will be. It's people like you, uninformed, that allow guys like him to win re-election term after term after term after term.

Dart should lead from the front and work all three watches for a week in the jail in the worst divisions. I'm sure the girly man feels he can handle it.
Our Mayor and city council misfits should work all three watches in 007,010,011,015 etc. They gave themselves the concealed carry long ago so they should know how to use a gun,lol. They should be the only back up each other has and answer jobs like we do.
The state Senators and Reps should do the same, just to show the average Joe how easy and safe it is. All these clowns are the same. no clue how or what we do, but are all experts on how to do it.
Oh ya make sure those camera are working , wouldn't what some poor citizen to miss out on a chance to sue, or beef.....

tom Dart will more than likely run for mayor next time around and Dart is laying the foundation to court te black community as being a local Bill Clinton that is, he wants to be able to throw out numbers and examples on how he had the black communities back.

Did you know Obama personally called him and asked him not to run for mayor when Rahm decided that was wha he wanted to do. This guy (Dart) will be the white candidate at the next mayoral election..

Did you guys the case where Darts Merit Board just fired a guy for pushing a inmate. They have fired so many guys for basically nothing to appease Dart. Union Local 399 gave 50k to Dart campaign and 399 Attorney Winters got a gig on Darts board. Remember 399 in no friend to the boys in blue.

This guy must have had clout because the Sheriff's merit board votes to fire in almost every case. The county has paid over 7 million in back pay to reinstate officers fired by the board. That was just in last 4 years.The reason Dart plays footsie with Alvarez is because she has the goods on him. Dart has been a nightmare for States Attorney civil division. You could not even fathom how much the Sheriff has cost the county in legal expenses.

Next time you meet someone from Beverly, thank them for giving us the Savior of Law Enforcement, Dart the Fart.
Next time you meet an officer from CC DOC, offer them condolences.
By the way, has Dart ever shown his gratitude for our fallen peace officers by attending a St. Jude League March? Has Obama ever attended a NLEOMF ceremony? Something tells me that the answer is NO!

She had whose backs?!?!? She tried to FRY the Park Forest officer who shot the old man with bean bags. By all accounts he followed the department SOPs to a T. The officer was called to the scene from the station after all other attempts to defuse the situation had been unsuccessful. She went for that guy's throat. How do you even fix your lips to say she had our backs? Just because you have two candidates you don't want doesn't make one any better than they are...you just have one you can tolerate a little more than the other.

You didn't watch the video? The inmate wanted a confrontation. He just got an extra scoop of potatoes more than he expected on his tray. That's the era we're in. Start a fight, lose a fight, complain because you lost.

You want to know how bad the Sheriff's office is. The rat/mole for operation shield ran Dart's internal affairs until last year. He took a 35k pay cut to go back as an ASA. He has told many people that he couldn't take it anymore particularly the way Dart wanted to target good officers. This guy a wire sending numerous people to prison. Even he felt guilty the way Dart treats his employees. The Sheriff's office has the highest suicide rate 50 fold of any office in the country. Its just a horrible place to work. Shows you how one evil ambitious person can bring so much misery on many people.

The suicide rate at CCSPD is no joke. My husband spent 30 years there. Thank GOD he got out with his sanity at 51. Dart is his own criminal enterprise who's NEVER actually done police work. I only WISH he would release the video on the inmates sodomizing the chickens in his farm experiment at county jail. SICK FUCKS. Never see that on the 9 O'Clock news!!!

I've been with the Cook County Sheriff's Dept.for 22 yrs. Tom Dart has cost the Taxpayer so much money. It start a few years ago when he was the Chief legal advisor for Mike Sheehan. Tom Dart was Involved in a Lawsuit that Paid Out 55 Million to Loevy & Loevy Law firm for the strip searching of inmates. The Federal Courts ruled a month later that Strip Searches were Legal. Mean while the county settled the Lawsuit out of Court. The County never Attempted to get the 55 Million back.At the same time Dart wins for Sheriff. He Replaces the Director of the Jail with a lawyer Named Callie Baird (Now A Judge). She comes out with a Order that all Incident Reports were Staff and Inmates are involved be Submitted to her Office by the Next day for her to Review. About Two Months later we seen a Spike in Law Suits Against the Staff under her watch. Everyone was Wondering why this was Happening. It turned out that Callie Baird was going threw the reports and sending the Incidents were staff and Inmates were involved with use of Force too Certain Lawyers that flooded the County with Crazy Law Suits. It doesn't end there. Tom Dart then request that the DOJ Review the jail Policies. At which time the DOJ comes out with a terrible report. At which time more Law Suits poured in against the Staff. Tom Dart doesn't send any Use Of Reports to IAD To Investigate. He just Settles the Law Suits out of Court. Costing the Taxpayers Millions. Now Tom Dart Installs Camera in the entire Jail. He then uses the Cameras to show Half sided Videos of Staff dealing with inmates. He doesn't show the entire Videos of the entire Incidents. No Lawyer or Person Requested the Freedom of Information to show the Videos to the Public. But Tom Dart posted it on the Sheriff Site. Now we have the First Law Suit Filed by a Lawyer by Tom Dart stating the there was a Excessive Use Of Force. But Tom Dart took it a Step Further and Appointed and Replaced a Neutral Merit Board with a More Political Anti Police Member ran Merit Board. This is what he wanted to do. So he could come out and say the he is Transparent and started firing everyone that he wanted to make him look good in the public's Eyes. But Tom isn't that Transparent. He doesn't show how the Inmates are Assaulting staff in huge Numbers. The inmates are on Video showing them throwing shit and piss at staff. He doesn't show the Inmates Masturbating in the open when a Female Officer or Civilian is Present. He hasn't Charged one inmate with Throwing shit and Piss at staff. In fact a new Chief of Staff Terry Williams and Brad Curry have rewarded the Inmates that act out with Pizza Partied if they don't act out. That failed. Just last Month we had a Inmate on Inmate fight App 125 Inmates in total. Not one inmate was Charged or sent to Segration. We had a inmate Drag a Officer in a cell and broke the Officers Jaw. That Inmate wasn't Charged because it wasn't Caught on Camera. We Had about 20 Inmates in the tunnel just last week and started fighting with each other and running threw out the Tunnels assaulting each other and staff. Not one Inmate was Charged.

Tom Dart its interesting how your Administration losing to Control of the Policies You want them to Enforce. But don't Worry we got your Back. We will show you and the kind Jailing you want. Officers are now Stepping back and letting the Inmate do what they want. I'm sure you are looking at the Videos. Tom its nice seeing how very few Officers are now Responding to Inmate on Inmate Fighting. It's nice isn't that Officers are turning the other way and letting the inmates do what ever they want. This is the New Jailing you want and believe me you are going to see it get Better. To all the staff from Officer to Superintendent are well aware of you throwing them under the bus. The staff is well aware of you not only trying to Fire them. You are now trying to get the staff Charged will Criminal Charges. Don't worry Tom you will have a few that you get. But in time all the Staff will fall into place and become very Fetal to the rules you want your staff to Follow. Tom its interesting how even your own Adminstration are Questioning the Safety and Working Conditions for the Staff. Tom its Interesting that you had a very fit Superintendent die of a Heart Attack and two Other Superintendents Resigning due to the Terrible Policies and treatment by your Current Adminstration. Don't Worry Tom we Got your back. We wont do anything. The Videos will show it in the future. Too all the Officers and Front line Brass stay safe and Remember the eye in the sky is watching you.
