Cook County "Justice"

Amazing:
  • Keep sticking your neck out

    Charges have been dropped against a man accused of battering an off-duty police officer who intervened in a Wrigleyville street disturbance on June 22. The officer was rendered unconscious in the attack.

    One count of felony aggravated battery to a police officer against 29-year-old Tremaine Wilson was tossed out with a finding of no probable cause by Cook County Judge Marvin Luckman. The state then dropped a lesser charge of reckless conduct, according to court records.
We can debate the wisdom of  taking any sort of police action (aside from dialing 9-1-1) all day long. But this just reinforces the feeling that not a single entity has our backs.

The state's attorney's office can still indict the case and let a grand jury decide if there is probable cause. Are Alvarez and her underlings willing to take this very simple step?

Many judges are quite liberal and anti-police. So, such decisions are not unexpected. It is safer to just stay ultra fetal. Your efforts at pro-active policing will not be appreciated and may even be used against you.

Anyone who has ever been to felony court at Belmont/Western has a story about that senile judge, known as "Let em' go Luckman." If his actions didn't have such serious repercussions it would be funny. The media, if they actually cared, could do an unbelievable expose on his courtroom antics. But like I said, IF they actually cared. A very significant amount of Chicago crime stats, including murders could be traced back and attributed to his release of guilty defendants that were released based upon his limited mental capacity and unbelievable bench antics.

Yeah, about that judge, he's almost 90 yrs old and for years could not hear!!! We need to rebuttal, it is outrageous what took place. Better cameras are needed in that corner too, a pod camera. Quality video is necessary as we have Wrigley is a busy area and cops working do not to be anyone's punching bag. We need to request the indictment. It is all too crazy.

You guys can beef about "Let em go Luckman", but what about "No Crime Stein"? I remember sitting in court at a attempt murder case he was presiding over in which the victim was a Chicago Police Officer. He found the defendant not guilty. The kicker was when he said in his ruling, and I quote, "I know the defendant is guilty but he's such a nice guy, I just cannot convict him". It was then that I realized that my life was meaningless to these people.

There is an election coming up. Remember his name, VOTE HIM OUT OF OFFICE. Hey, DEAN the next time you give a speech about why the Police are not making street stops you can list this as one of the reasons why. If FOP had our best interest, they would take some type of action: Like having a meeting with the Chief Judge and complain. Hold a press conference and explain to the citizens what happens when the Police and common citizens take action. Have organized picketing outside the building where the court is located. The list of injustice against the police goes on and on and no action from FOP. That is what a real union chief would do. Let's face it, Dean can not or will not take any type of action. This also proves that the FOP has no political muscle

So put Tremaine here on the official "list" and let's see how long it takes for the "complex social dynamics" to turn him from offender to victim.

"Don't lock his a__ up so he'll get shot!" says Judge Luckman.

Tremaine will maybe "borrow" money and run around the corner to the dirty little store for a can of "spice" or "bath salts" and not come back like he promised to -- and become the hunted. Just a matter of time...

Honorable Marvin P. Luckman, Circuit Judge
Municipal Department
District 1 - Felony Preliminary Hearings
Branch 42
2452 W. Belmont Ave.
Chicago, Illinois 60618
(773) 404-3316

vs.

Timothy Evans, chief judge of Cook County Circuit Court, has called for a halt to such treatment of defendants who say they can’t afford to hire a lawyer;“The law is crystal clear. Counsel must be made available to the indigent,” said Evans, who recently issued an order condemning the practice of denying free legal help to the poor.

In an interview, Evans said our entire "system of justice” is at stake if the practice continues, as is the freedom of the defendant.

Evans' order came in response to an investigation by the justice system reform group Chicago Appleseed Fund for Justice, which it said found judges refusing to appoint public defenders in cases without a fair review;

Chicago Appleseed attorneys randomly selected courtrooms in Cook County branch court

judges refused to appoint a public defender without holding a compulsory hearing to measure defendants' financial situation

advocates obtained transcripts to help illustrate the problem and forwarded them to Evans

“Defendants were being denied a public defender simply for the fact that they've posted bond,” said Ali Abid, staff attorney with Chicago Appleseed. “It's against the law and a violation of the Sixth Amendment.”

Another judge, Marvin Luckman, who refused to appoint a public defender to represent the homeless man, apparently was not familiar with the recently issued order by Evans

But in an interview, Luckman balked at the suggestion that he failed to follow rules for appointing a public defender.

"I couldn't care less about the transcripts," Luckman said. "I have been a lawyer for over 50 years. I have given public defenders to defendants who are indigent."

THERE IT IS! OBTAIN THE TRANSCRIPTS OF THIS FINDING OF NO PROBABLE CAUSE and lets follow who dropped the ball!

Because they were all law-abiding citizens, scrupulously obeying the "No Guns" stickers, and had enough of a load of their own without taking on someone else's half-intelligible he-say-she-say gone bad, over the train roar and the PA announcements.

One time I even got a nice formal letter of appreciation from an incident where the two admitted armed youths were let go by the hispanic magistrate.

My resolution after that last one was "if someone is dumb enough to be/live there and not be able to not be a victim, they need be so they can learn". And moved to another planet as soon as I could. In a better world now.

There is an election coming up. Remember his name, VOTE HIM OUT OF OFFICE. Hey, DEAN the next time you give a speech about why the Police are not making street stops you can list this as one of the reasons why. If FOP had our best interest, they would take some type of action: Like having a meeting with the Chief Judge and complain. Hold a press conference and explain to the citizens what happens when the Police and common citizens take action. Have organized picketing outside the building where the court is located. The list of injustice against the police goes on and on and no action from FOP. That is what a real union chief would do. Let's face it, Dean can not or will not take any type of action. This also proves that the FOP has no political muscle

Luckman isn't up for retention again until 2018.
Maybe some front page stories could inspire him to retire, but he's there til 2018, otherwise.

Locked gates/yard?!?! Isn't there actually a City ordinance or law that states you cannot do that? For first responders, firefighters chime in... anyone know or hear of this

No. You can have a locked gate that prevents access from outside, but not one that prevents someone from exiting. That way you're allowed to secure your property without endangering lives in the case of a fire or other emergency. I would advise anyone with a locking gate to think twice about using it. Police aren't as quick to jump over fences anymore. If your gate is locked, there's a good chance the police are stopping right there. If the police or fire department need to break into a locked yard to get access to you when you need help, you may not get the help you need in time. I guess you have to weigh the odds on whether you will need police or fire against how secure your property needs to be.

Well now, here's your problem right here...

http://www.illinoisjudges.net/

Notice anything that sticks out about that list?

There was a whopping SIXTY-THREE Democrats and only FOUR Republicans who ran for judge.


To say that the Democratic voters in this town are stupid would be a severe understatement.

Think about it...
The average Democrat worships abnormality. Season this abnormality with a massive dose of stupidity and you have the perfect storm. Democrats think that simple things like having a photo ID are beyond the intellectual prowess of their constituents. Democrats are not even smart enough to look at themselves in a mirror and figure out which bathroom they belong in.
The New Democrat prototype (the illegal alien) needs to be trained not to murder, rape, and pillage.
And now there's some insane expectation that these morons will ever have it together enough to step up to being contributing members of society?? ...let alone tend to their personal responsibilities??

Face it... this country is screwed.

From a father of a rather normal Chicago family that doesn't commit crime, my apologies to the police officers that saw their work wasted on this, and my outrage to the judge who can't possibly share with us a set of values that would create a livable, fair city. Releasing this "man" sets him free on all of us, young and old. And when he revisits you, it will be for an even worse crime - i hope your sense of right and wrong resets itself in that moment, because your calibration is way off right now...

It's really simple. Whenever you find yourself in front of a judge like him, don't testify, get selective memory, or just give the bare minimum testimony. Who cares if the judge tosses the case. Get paid and move on.

Judge Marvin Luckman has been on the bench for about 25 years past his expiration date. He's nearly deaf and his judgment id beyond questionable. But Cook County voters keep voting to retain him...

Can you name ANY judge voted for non-retention? You were probably in kindergarten when that happened. As far as I know, that was Judge Lawrence Passarella who let a thug go who beat the shit out of PO Cathy Touhy of 015. That was 30 years ago. I came on the job right at that time.

You are not supposed to have Locke gates, etc. The police do not need a warrant to enter yards or W hen chasing an offender. Just be sure to call in location and beware of dogs, etc. Plainclothes officers, please get to know uniform officers , so no one gets hurt.

Entering a backyard, locked or unlocked is a lawful act by law enforcement as long as you're not there to gather evidence or intelligence without probable cause. Exigent Circumstance doctrine dictates Law Enforcement broad access based on finite circumstances, and entering a backyard via whatever means necessary while in pursuit of, or searching for and offender, or evidence of his or her criminal act is allowable. The owner/occupant doesn't have to like it, but like everything else, they do have to tolerate it. Know/learn the law folks, it really allows us to do our job. Knowing it ahead of time takes that doubt out of your head.

And to the Sgt or Lt who may be investigating the CR number mentioned in one of the replies to this thread, you may choose to use this information to unfound the allegation, and tell the complainant to pound sand. I mean inform them of the law and smile when you tell them you will be unfounding their complaint, and also that the officers were well within the law and were acting effectively, efficiently and appropriately while protecting them and their neighbors. And of course, thank them for their support.

From a fellow Lt.

Exigent circumstance
An exigent circumstance, in the criminal procedure law of the United States, allows law enforcement, under certain circumstances, to enter a structure without a search warrant or, if they have a "knock and announce" warrant, without knocking and waiting for refusal. It must be a situation where people are in imminent danger, evidence faces imminent destruction, or a suspect's imminent escape.

I already weighed the odds. I've called the police (I am the police) once, for an intruder, in ten years. CFD loves to make entry, so I'm not worried about them getting on the property.
My gates are locked against the neighborhood thieves and the nosy bitch who lives across the street. I'm good with that.
