No More Freebies

This popped up in the comments:
  • Off topic, just got wind of a new order saying were not allowed to take discounts for coffee, food etc Any knowledge of?
This is the second appearance of this particular rumor. It was here a few weeks ago and we filed it away to address later as more info became available. Numerous people replied to it yesterday, some with the info we were waiting for:
  • When the new order is published, everyone will be shocked at the rules. Two officers had DOJ with them for a tour of duty. The officers took them to a hotel for free meal. The DOJ was shocked and now we get a new order for any type of gratuities
Feds are sticklers for this sort of thing, so we assumed something like this was coming. In Washington DC, everything is for sale (you just have to call it by another name), but out here in the sticks, it's not allowed.

That being said, we were told by a lot of old timers, "Always reach for your wallet kid" and we've lived by that advice ever since. If a business wanted to give us the "employee discount" and there was a tip jar on the counter, we'd toss the difference in the cup for the employees. If it was full boat, we paid full boat.

We didn't seek it out, we never demanded it, though we've heard of those who did. And it certainly never affected our choices - if your coffee sucked, we didn't get it; if we wanted a certain coffee, we paid whatever the register said, regardless of any sort of discount. In other words, we were smart about it.

So now what are we supposed to do? Order the cashier at gun point to charge the full price? Video the boss putting his key in the box, ringing off 10% and then report him to whom exactly? What about this manager?
  • My staff knows to give discounts to uniformed police officers from any municipality. It is authorized by our corporation to do so. We want you to be around. You guys have helped save our employees and customers from potential risk so many times. None of you ever ask for it either. You guys know our corporation doesn't care how safe we are and have a car out about the time of shift changes to make sure we get to our cars without incident. We are all very thankful.
We had a nice couple pay our bill the other day - never told us, just walked in, paid the cashier and walked out. We went to pay and the cashier told us what happened. What now? Purge the food we didn't pay for? Not likely.

If you have to ask, you're an ass. If someone does something nice for you, thank them, profusely. Shake their hand. Leave a tip on the full amount for the staff.

And be sure to tell the White Sox that "First Responder Day" is a thing of the past.

That's been an order for about 20 years ow. We have never been allowed to accept anything for free or discounts on anything because we are the police.

Who was the dummies who took them for a free meal? These people are not your friend. They are out to paint the department in the worse possible light. These meals are described as bribes in the world of the DOJ.

This is another time the department has shot itself in the foot.

SCC is right. The days of free this and that are in the past.

Do you remember the movie HOOVER with Leonardo DiCaprio.

Once in as Director do you think he ever paid for a meal?

If he did he must have had a government expense account.

Taking G-Men to lunch. NEVER TRUST A FED!

Geeze, they should have paid the check with their expense account.

and every other private entity wishing
to express some appreciation.

"We WERE going to dedicate a day in
appreciation of Police and Fire on our

object to us doing so."

Why in the fuck would cops take outsiders to get a free anything. If true the cops have got to be giving the award for being the dumbest asses on t his job. Bad enough that cops burn a place up, but to take the Feds for a freebie is mind boggling. And if the Order is true, what will be the penalty for accepting the freebie and is the penalty on a sliding scale based on the freebie or on the number of freebie infractions one accumulate?

You should read the new department PowerPoint sent out after last weeks compstat forcing cars to do traffic missions in every district. The original idea was to force every car on the watch to participate in a traffic enforcement mission by the end of their tour. Stops are down so Mcnaughton and Nagode are sending out emails with a PowerPoint attached to mandate traffic missions They are not happy with the lack of proactive stops to date , so they are going to attempt to force everyone to make stopst by posting up groups of cars again for seatbelt missions in the middle of the ghetto. Yup what's old is new again. Seat belt enforcement missions in the ghetto are a great idea. Put your officers on foot as target for even more risk. Are these bosses that retarded? Not to mention it's all on paper.


Anyone foolish enough to do this nonsense needs their heads examined. Supervisors too. Too many
Officers have been crippled, sustained severe injuries, or been killed doing these stupid things and yet we are going to mandate them all over again in the areas with the highest shootings and propensity of violence. Great thinking there gold stars.


Top that off with the emails and outlines of how to address rollcalls and get them to produce. I kid you not there is a pre printed guide these idiots sent out to every district of how to address rollcalls.

This place is a joke.

Our academy home room instructor 'splained it dis way - if you are offered a discount/freebie give em lots of tanks. But always be ready to pay. And leave a good tip.
Funny how DOJ is uptight about freebies - several biographies of J. Edgar Hoover detail how he always never paid for meals or even left a tip. But a censure and transfer for any of his agents who would dare do the same. Do as I Say, not as I do seems to abound in any bureaucracy.
One other thought on freebies - My father NEVER charged other doctors & they never charged him. It is called professional courtesy. No one complains - but when we do it the next customer/journalist/DOJ do gooder will claim corruption. And goofy CALEA requires a directive forbidding the practice.

The DOJ was shocked that a lowly beat copper with a shit salary got a free "meal" (hotel food sucks for the most part) from a hotel? If this is true God help us. I agree with you SCC...I never burn down a restaurant or coffee spot. If they give it to me one day and not the next I don't fuss about it. I've worked with loser coppers whom have done it and it's fucking embarrassing. Lots of shit for brains losers in my district do that dumb shit. The best example I can give is a dumb fuck policeman that bought an assortment of items from Walgreens. After he purchased the items he realized they full boated him. So he returned all the items and went to a different Walgreens where they gave him the discount. But if the DOJ is worried about people doing things for us because they appreciate us...how much more selfless can you make this job? That's one of the few things that can make you feel wanted and appreciated. I think that's important for a policeman.

We all know how fast this job can make you jaded. Why speed up that process? I don't really need the discount. It just makes me feel all warm and fuzzy inside when someone says "Hey, you're doing a good job out there and we appreciate you." Something not even our president has the nerve to say.

The rules for the feds are ridiculous. The federal inspectors that oversee our facility 24/7 have to drop a quarter in a jar for every cup of coffee. Never mind it is freely supplied by the corporation for all the employees, contactors, visitors, and even the guy that fills the vending machines. It all dates back to holier than thou Jimmy Carter. The same clown that made a big show of carrying his own (empty) suitcase at the same time he treated the Secret Service, the Military, and all the "little people" like dirt.

It is however, perfectly acceptable for a corporation to pay Bill Clinton $200,000.00 for a 20 minute speech while Secretary of State Hillary Clinton is deciding whether to approve that same corporations business. THAT is ethical. That $200K is not bribe, it is just business. Sorta like handing over your passport with a Jackson in it to the customs official in that quaint Central American airport. But to maintain the "integrity" of the US Civil Service? A free cup of coffee for an inspector at midnight is a bribe that cannot be allowed.

I guess that we will need to come up with about a half million for Bill or Chelsea if we ever need President Hillary to help us out.

That is Washington Ethics.

Always be ready to pay, Illinois state police cannot and will not accept anything free, if it is free they are required to leave money on counter or don't accept food! In this day and age with the general anti-police attitude why even think about any freebies or not dine out? Personally myself and many smart copper grab lunch where you can buy a prepared salad or sandwich or just bring your lunch saves money and you know what you put into it! True story 1987 as a rookie went to lunch restaurant in 010th district had a turkey club sandwich (never since 1987 ordered a club sandwich again), couple hours after had massive bleed from mouth and rectum blood literally poured out rushed to Christ hospital coded out, 13 days later after major surgery released 6 months recovery, 30+ pints of blood plus much plasma. Before that day never sick doctor said "never seen this before could of been something I ate, cut in artery inside stomach" he could not be sure because whatever it was must of came out during bleeding! Thanks to Christ hospital I'm still here, just retired and will never forget going back to work and the old bosses who made sure my work recovery needs were met!

Moral of the story please think about who is preparing your food, and yes I did talk to restaurant owner after this incident health inspectors were called in. Was it intentionally done? Not sure but after release from hospital went to restaurant talked to owner by kitchen area and let's say cooks looked like ex or current offenders!

SCC ...
You addressed this topic, as you have others, very well. It is shame the hypocrisy of the Feds forced this issue. (Witness the DOJ's transparency in the actions of the Attorney General...) I have long enjoyed quietly paying tabs for first responders. It's never been about the money - but about sending the message that someone cares and is thankful.

Taking the high road, as you have, and paying your way is indeed noble and sends the proper message. And while I wish you would be able to simply accept someone's kindness, I understand the dynamic.

That said, I think you're onto a much bigger message. The fact that you are willing to leave for the server the amount that was left for you unequivocally solidifies your integrity with the server. It is the best kind of "paying it forward," as the server will appreciate the extra amount. Even better, that server will no doubt tell others what happened, and such word-of-mouth anecdotes will do wonders for public understanding of who our genuine good guys really are.

Lord knows I appreciate all you do protecting society. Keep the faith - there are legions who support you. Even from down here in FL...

This is probably an example of cultural workplace bias on the part of the Feds. It is part of their employee orientation to pay for everything and to reject gratuities. Even accepting so much as a cup of coffee is viewed as unethical. On top of that the Federal employees are reimbursed for meals and incidental expenses while on assignment outside of their usual work locations, provided that they complete the necessary paperwork.

In Leonard Levitt’s book NYPD Confidential: Power and Corruption in the Country's Greatest Police Force he talks about the ways the NYPD fell into its cyclical corruption scandals. Yes, on the individual level, rot begins with the smallest things.

One of the coppers who was assigned to clean up on of the big scandals was an NYPD insider. His policy was to never accept anything for free. Even at conventions and seminars – no embossed coffee cups or hats.

HOMESTEAD, Pa. (AP) - A group of police officers have picked up the check for a couple who didn't want to sit near them at a Pennsylvania restaurant.

A server at the Eat'n Park restaurant in the borough of Homestead tells Pittsburgh's WTAE-TV (http://bit.ly/29AV4fG ) that the couple wanted another table after being brought to a table near the officers Saturday. Officer Chuck Thomas says he told the man and woman that it was OK to sit near his group and that "we won't hurt you." After the couple walked away, he says he and another officer thought they should pay their bill.

The officers wrote on the bill, "thank you for your support."

Fuck the General Orders, I will get a discount if offered for ammo or gun. I bring my own lunch. I don't eat in ghetto establishments don't trust them.

If you feel like pandering you might give the DOJ a handout of some sort if it does not seem like a bribe. But showing them stuff, yeah, really bad idea.

Given current treatment I appreciate the frustration, but whether it should or not, this petty free stuff does make cops look bad.

Back in the day my partner would eat at places where we knew the staff, they were friends, the owner took care of us but the patrons were regulars and we got to know them and be a me friends. It was our safe house where we could be left alone for a brief period. We worked with a few people who only ate at free joints and would bring the entire team to destroy the buffet and leave 3 dollar tip. The main guy is now a Lt.in 001 and a lawyer too. Hey Joe I'm talking about you. Remember you and daddy's saying? IF IT'S FREE IT'S FOR ME.

Always be ready to pay, Illinois state police cannot and will not accept anything free, if it is free they are required to leave money on counter or don't accept food! In this day and age with the general anti-police attitude why even think about any freebies or not dine out? Personally myself and many smart copper grab lunch where you can buy a prepared salad or sandwich or just bring your lunch saves money and you know what you put into it! True story 1987 as a rookie went to lunch restaurant in 010th district had a turkey club sandwich (never since 1987 ordered a club sandwich again), couple hours after had massive bleed from mouth and rectum blood literally poured out rushed to Christ hospital coded out, 13 days later after major surgery released 6 months recovery, 30+ pints of blood plus much plasma. Before that day never sick doctor said "never seen this before could of been something I ate, cut in artery inside stomach" he could not be sure because whatever it was must of came out during bleeding! Thanks to Christ hospital I'm still here, just retired and will never forget going back to work and the old bosses who made sure my work recovery needs were met!

Moral of the story please think about who is preparing your food, and yes I did talk to restaurant owner after this incident health inspectors were called in. Was it intentionally done? Not sure but after release from hospital went to restaurant talked to owner by kitchen area and let's say cooks looked like ex or current offenders!

7/13/2016 04:35:00 AM
I remember this incident I worked in 010 with this officer when this happened, also remember you had beat car assigned to 4 block radius by St Anthony's hospital until you regulated your system, the place I never ever went back to it was terrible what happened just glad your ok now, it was touch and go and you were what in your late 20's, in great physical condition! There have been other incidents like when that Mexican place on 11th st put feces in coppers sandwich, just fellow officers think before you eat! When you go to say Jewel or another store and buy pre-packed food nothing is intentionally done to you it was random, but if they are serving you do you know what goes on? when some say "Let me go back to the kitchen and get your food" if everyone in that place is not 100% pro-police, you be 100% pro-leaving! The propaganda is being ramped up, and now with the push from rahm-toni-dart etc forcing businesses to hire ex offenders do you think they are happy with police?

look at hot dog place "felony franks" surely the felons like police/sarcasm!

Pennsylvania cop picks up tab for couple who refuses to sit next to table of police officers at diner

* Officer Chuck Thomas was eating dinner at the Eat'n Park in Waterfront
* That's when he heard man tell waiter 'I don't want to sit there'
* Thomas told him there was 'nothing to worry about' but man still refused
* It was the day after the Dallas shootings, and Thomas wanted to reach out
* So he paid for the man's $28.50 bill and left a message on the receipt, plus $10 tip

Why doesn't the DOJ talk to the International Association of Chief's of Police (IACP)? The IACP's policy on accepting gratuities is that even though they "frown" on the practice, they do not prohibit it. That's their recommendation to police executives who belong to IACP. They realize that the police culture was built on citizens and especially businesses showing their gratitude towards the police (and expecting a little service) by giving the police discounts, free meals, free coffee, etc. It would have been unrealistic for the IACP to recommend that police departments adapt a "no tolerance" attitude towards accepting token gratuities. The obvious downside to this from the DOJ's perspective (and some other police executives) is that this leads to wide spread corruption among departments. I don't think so.

Obscure case involving Obama, NJ limo driver sends shockwaves through Albania

"A federal case involving a New Jersey limo driver, the most powerful man in the world and the prime minister of Albania has drawn scant attention in the U.S., but it threatens to rock the southern European nation's corridors of power.

"On paper, New Jersey chauffeur driver Bilal Shehu was a big donor to President Obama’s 2012 re-election campaign, ponying up $80,000 for he and his wife to attend an exclusive fundraiser in San Francisco.

"But Shehu didn’t bring his wife; he brought Edi Rama, who would go on to become Albania’s prime minister. The feds say it was Rama’s money all along, and a picture Rama got with the U.S. president gave his campaign back home a huge boost.

"Shehu,of the New York suburb of Paramus, N.J., has not fared as well. He pleaded guilty June 29 to knowingly and willfully making foreign contributions and donations and faces five years in prison and a $250,000 fine when he is sentenced on Oct. 5.

"In his homeland, Albanian political operatives have charged that the money was provided by drug dealers, and Rama's rivals are calling for him to be prosecuted..."

One of the problems with race relations between police and the poor community is the lack of communication about the relationship: it's only one-sided. The media almost always hears the views of the community. It's time for the police department to start telling it from our side. Release the body cam videos of community members who violently erupt and fight against the police. The suicide-by-police videos, the attacks, the fights, the foot-chases, the domestics, the baby mama dramas. Show it all. For too long, myself and fellow officers have lost contact with our civilian friends because when we talk about work, they simply don't believe what we tell them could possibly be true. they just don't get it, so we have simply stopped telling them. we don't share what we see. with the cameras, let the public see what we see everyday, how those on welfare are making extra money in the underground economy like selling drugs, bootleg movies, cigarettes, stolen goods -- which are all illegal activities. how driving around the "poor" neighborhoods we see the "poor" driving new cars, mercedes, bmw's, hyundais and kias. How someone on welfare has a 60-inch tv in their living room, how they are wearing $100 jeans hanging off their asses while they are apparently job-less, how at the beginning of the month they sell their link cards to the local grocer for 35 cents to the dollar. How while on welfare living off the backs of working Americans, they spend their days drinking alcohol and smoking weed. How while they are jobless, they don't have time to pick up the garbage on their streets, sidewalks, lawns, and vacant lots. How while on the public dime, they are fixing cars for extra cash in their alleys. the list goes on and on . . . .

To police departments across the country, start being open and now that we have the cameras, the public will believe and see what we have seen for years but no one believed before.

I always thought the Bureau legend of the roast beef was pretty funny, don't know if it's any thing more than anecdotal.

Supposedly an agent went into a deli in NYC thinking that FBI agents were given a discount or got a little extra meat on their sandwich. When he got to the counter he showed his credentials and told the guy "FBI! More roast beef!".

The guy at the counter was confused, and the story goes that agents who got wind of the story would, if they had shown their credentials to a witness or something, would say "I roast beefed him".

Serpico had a pretty good scene where Pacino, as a rookie cop, is with his veteran partner and they stop to eat at a deli and the counterman gives them a free sandwich, and Serpico complains that there's too much fat on the pastrami and his partner then explains to him the etiquette of accepting a freebie: never complain and never ask for something different.

First and foremost, had the DOJ with them and took them for a free meal. Who in the hell is mentally incompetent enough to do that? What asses! A free meal? Listen up, nothing is free. Never. And to exhibit this to INVESTIGATORS from the DOJ? The coppers who did this should be ashamed of themselves. Just had to play the big man on campus role huh? Hey, I'm all juiced up; I know where to get free food. We're so good they always take care of us. Well dummy, your boastful arrogance and inability to think on the fly were clearly exhibited with this move. Go pay for your lunch for a day you cheap fucker, but no, now you have them looking at shit they weren't even here to look at. Dummy.

With that said, General Order or no General Order, if someone gives you a cup of coffee, or reduces the cost of your lunch then feel free to take it. There have always been rules about this, and we have never been able to take any gratuities. There are also rules set by your employer (The City) that are clearly explained in that nonsense on-line ethics training you are beat over the head with every year starting in March. The rules are clearly explained in the City Ordinance and examples given in the training. But, the bottom line is that you cannot take any gratuity, ever. HOWEVER, a gratuity or a tip, or a freebe is not a gratuity, a tip or a freebe if it is not for services rendered, or requested. If you are a paying customer and a business chooses to give you their product for free or at a reduced cost without you asking for it, there is nothing they can do about it. The rules of being an entrepreneur in this Country include an individual's free will do whatever they want with their product, including giving it away to anyone they so choose. No one, including any level of government can demand they stop their free-will gestures nor can they demand any accounting of who, what or when they give their products to. Some over-zealous bosses on this Department tried something like this in the past and were told by business owners to go screw themselves, they will give their product to whomever they want and at whatever cost of their choosing. And thank you to the business owners who took that stand. The bottom line is that you cannot request a discount, you cannot expect payment for any police service you provide, you cannot offer any police service to garner any favor inclusive of a free service in return, and you cannot perform any service in exchange for any goods or services. Plain and simple. If you go into a spot, offer to and expect to pay. If they don't take it, or they take a portion of your payment, that is their choosing. Expect to help, assist and service anyone and everyone in society, that's what we do and don't expect freebies in return. That’s not why we do what we do. If someone wants to buy you a coffee, or a meal enjoy it and say thank you. If they offer to buy you a car, decline it, and cry a little on the inside.

You should read the new department PowerPoint sent out after last weeks compstat forcing cars to do traffic missions in every district. The original idea was to force every car on the watch to participate in a traffic enforcement mission by the end of their tour. Stops are down so Mcnaughton and Nagode are sending out emails with a PowerPoint attached to mandate traffic missions They are not happy with the lack of proactive stops to date , so they are going to attempt to force everyone to make stopst by posting up groups of cars again for seatbelt missions in the middle of the ghetto. Yup what's old is new again. Seat belt enforcement missions in the ghetto are a great idea. Put your officers on foot as target for even more risk. Are these bosses that retarded? Not to mention it's all on paper.


Anyone foolish enough to do this nonsense needs their heads examined. Supervisors too. Too many
Officers have been crippled, sustained severe injuries, or been killed doing these stupid things and yet we are going to mandate them all over again in the areas with the highest shootings and propensity of violence. Great thinking there gold stars.


Top that off with the emails and outlines of how to address rollcalls and get them to produce. I kid you not there is a pre printed guide these idiots sent out to every district of how to address rollcalls.

This place is a joke.



This is gonna make Weezie demand activity even more.
She wouldn't know how to do a traffic stop nor properly complete an ISR to save her life but she's good at demanding things she'd never be capable of.

Years ago I was working a detail, walked into a papa johns and asked to use the restroom. The dipshit college punk behind the counter told me the restrooms were not for public use. After that I vowed to avoid any stores in the city. Now I bring anything I want to eat or drink. F this city.

I know for a fact govt employees receive all kinds of discounts. Hotels, flights, rental cars, cell phones, computers, personal car purchases, gym memberships, resteraunts and auto clubs like AAA. And those are just to name a few. I'm sure a Google search could reveal tons more. And they expect us to believe they don't use these benefits? Classic do as I say, not as I do. At least most coppers only receive these perks when on duty and in uniform as thank you for the job they do and for being a crime deterrent. The Feds have to specifically ask for these discounts (which I've heard them do numerous times while waiting in line) all while off the clock.

Didn't the supreme court just decide in the McDonnell case that accepting freebies isn't a crime for public officials if they don't provide anything overt and out of the ordinary in return. So while it may be in violation of the general orders it not criminal unless you do something material and extraordinary for the "favor". Anything you would do in the normal course of your job would not be considered as something in return. So, as this is a general order issue maybe it should be something considered in the next contract negotiations. As they say, what's good for the goose is good for the . . .

A long time ago in a galaxy far, far away, an officer had a problem with a shooting. The bosses were asked for a patrolman to escort a female reporter through a single tour of duty. Dummy even invited her into her home, where he could display his collection of street toys picked up over the years. His wife, a very nice lady, was introduced to the reporter. One thing led to another. The Article came out in McCall's and the dummy spent hours downtown meeting the command staff. Not good. The reporter made his wife look like a hooker, and gave up an after hours joint to the City. No Even tho the District supervisor managed a double pick me up out the door.

Never tell A fed anything, and never, ever speak to a reporter.

If all you guys are crying now, think about this, you were never allowed to take a free or discounted coffee, meal, etc...
This order coming out is just the 1st of many, many, many new orders. And remember, in L.A., after the federal investigation into "Practices and policy" (after the Rodney King incident), the Feds convinced a federal judge to "suspend" the collective bargaining agreement (your "union" contract). They cant affect your pay rate, BUT everything else is subject to suspension (seniority picks for furloughs, watches, etc.) This went on for seven years. If you dont think that that is going to happen here, under Rahm, in this anti-police era, you are an idiot.

I was at a retirement party for a Sgt. who worked in Special Events and dealt with the Secret Service, FBI, various agencies etc. Maurer acknowledged each agency present and thanked them for cooperation etc. All except the FBI. Maurer asked if there were any FBI agents in attendance and pretended to be looking around the room for FBI agents. There was a whole table of FBI but Maurer pretended not to see them. "Is there no FBI agents here?" Maurer asked again. Then Maurer said, "Oh well, the FBI must be out practicing running away from gunfights." A groan let out but more than a little applause too.

Maurer is one of the few who would bust FBI balls in public at a function like that. This was after CPD Detective was shot in the head trying to arrest a bank robber on a warrant and the two FBI agents who were our detective's backup ran out of the apartment and called for help.

Two armed FBI agents allowed a Chicago Police Detective to lay there shot in the head and the shithead wouldn't let medical people in for several hours. Chickenshit ballless FBI ran way and Joe Airheart was a vegetable after that.

Does the mayor pay for his red light tickets?
Does the Mayor pay for all those nice dinner at fundraiser?
Does the mayor pay back the City when he has his sworn bodyguard at sergeants pay pick up his cleaning?

Defaming, inflammatory, good, it was meant to me. Not at all without merit. The FBI agents themselves gave their version on TV before the bosses grabbled them and told them to shut up. Yes, I had a misspelling on Det Airhart's name. Mea culps, that's all you have, a misspelling.

Learn the facts? I stated the facts as I learned them from coppers that day, I was there, but not inside the asshole's apartment.

The FBI retreating and calling for backup, leaving our guy laying there, that came straight out of the mouths of the two FBI agents who turned tail and ran. Do you think two CPD detectives would have ran away? I went through doors of other apartments on different dates and on one day went face to face with Jose holding a .45. Now one of us was walking out and one was going to be carried out, My partner was first to tackle him and I grabbed the gun. The guy never thanked us for not killing him. I was going to shoot him, gun in hand, nothing wrong with that one, my partner, now deceased, ran past me and knocked him down. That took guts

You must be a Fed. A Chicago cop or tact officer or detective would know it is show time and you have to go in and take care of business.

Asshole didn't come out until a reporter went there and listened to asshole's story. Paul Meincke from ABC. They gave Meincke a medal, Richard J. Daley Police Medal of Honor, for acting as an intermediary in the standoff.

Maurer closed streets on the path to Northwestern Hospital ER so the ambulance could eventually go to the hospital unimpeded.

If you want the facts, give Jim Maurer a call. Any chance I get to defame or insult the FBI, believe me, I will take it. Fuck them.

Hilliard did nothing but let Airhart bleed out hoping he'd succumb to his injuries. Joe played a key role in the Austin 7 case and created many enemies (white shirts ) because of it. A lot of things I didn't like about Cline but was sure of one thing, Feds be damned , he wouldn't let you lie there & die.
