Ambiguous Reporting

This is from the Channel 7 report about the slander committed by Bobby Rush:
  • A spokesperson for Rush released the following statement:

    "Congressman Rush said he spoke with the police superintendent and he accepted his apology on behalf of the officers involved. It was never his intention to get the officers fired, he wanted to bring attention to the disparities in traffic stop. The officers contend they pulled him over after running his plates---however, his plates are the only one in the country that is registered in Illinois and to the 1st Congressional District of Illinois. His plates simply read with the numeral one, and United States Congress. With that said, he felt threatened as an African-American elder in the community, and filed the complaint to bring attention to what every citizens in his community experience with dubious traffic stops."
That is among the more poorly written paragraphs we've ever seen - and we've been writing novels for nearly 11 years now. This can be read two ways:
  • Version 1 - "Congressman Rush said [Congressman Rush] spoke with the police superintendent and [the police superintendent] accepted [Congressman Rush's] apology on behalf of the officers involved.
In which case, our question is, "Why isn't Rush apologizing in person to the officers? Oh yeah, he's a gutless pussy who can't be bothered to correct the record.
  • Version 2 - "Congressman Rush said [Congressman Rush] spoke with the police superintendent and [Congressman Rush] accepted [the police superintendent's] apology on behalf of the officers involved. 
In which case, we have two questions:
  • Who the fuck does Special Ed think he is apologizing to this turd for the completely legal, correct and exonerated actions of his officers?
  • How does Bobby Rush's dick taste Ed?
We need some clarification.

If it's Version 1, well, Rush is an asshole, and no one expects much from assholes - except shit - which Rush supplies on a near daily basis.

If it's Version 2, it's time for a "no confidence" motion by the FOP as Special Ed has obviously lost his fucking mind, and Special Ed needs to immediately resign as he's lost the entire Department.

A leader who apologizes for superior conduct is not a leader and should resign immediately.

I'm going with version #2. Bobby Rush is too arrogant to ever admit he was wrong. But remember, the Dept. has your back. Thanks, boss....your pandering is despicable.

SO we have an interesting fact here.

Rush is a politician and can call on special ED for a private meeting and discuss an open investigation.

This is not the first time special ED has met privately with politician. A certain agitator who runs with Black lives matter pulled the same type stunt type in closed private meetings.

Add in the FATHER FAKER who seem to believe he is the answer to all the south side ills yet has only seemed to enrich himself.

Has any of these 8 officer in the Laquan cluster fuck had a private meeting with special to give their thought on that case?

SO closing when was this meeting with the esteemed RUSH who drives with no phone and mumbles when spoken too? Email? Letter? signed affidavit?
OR was special told to fix this from RAHMs Cabal in the mayors office for fear he may faint again?


PS I would keep that signed affidavit as a medal of honor and hang that baby on my bathroom wall. Nice job officers

This entire incident showcases two points. First, Bobby Rush is an ASSHOLE. Second, Special Ed is an ASSHOLE. All that is left to be resolved is if Dean allows a 'no confidence' vote to take place. If Dean doesn't, then he is an ASSHOLE.

No matter the motives of Rush he defamed both officers and committed perjury in the Affidavit and during the course of the investigation or comments to the media.

All that is needed now is a lawyer with a BIG set of BALLS to step forward to help the officers sue that POS Rush.

Rush was not in the Well of the House when he made his false allegation, so he is not shielded.

SCC - Thank you for keeping this issue alive and planting FOP's feet directly in the fire where they belong. Yesterday's post by "OWWILSON" must have be the unofficial line for "DenialDeano" as it babbled on about "not getting involved in civil suits" and "providing attorneys for officers summoned for witness statements." Well, how about a vote of no confidence if your treasury can't afford sterner measures? Or are you guys too busy with the upcoming election to deal with a festering issue that only gets worse - Special Ed. Or are we going to have to suffer from lack of sensible leadership until a new set of FOP officers/Board members is installed?
Hey Historian Dean: You have a former black panther U S Congressman on video being properly treated who then files a spurious charge on a sworn affidavit. Why aren't you seizing the moment and defending the officers while asking Special Ed why he apologized instead of having Rush stammer out his apology???
Remember when State Sen. Emil Jones cried discrimination because the officers thought a youngster (his son) driving his luxury car with official plates was suspicious? It looks like these "Mr. Macho" plates cause more harm than good. Besides, aren't these plates only reason is to get special treatment while the politico says he isn't looking for any favors? The biggest joke are the retired legislator plates for clowns like former senator Billy Marovitz.

Last night on MSNBC that socialist dork Anchor Chris Hayes ran that town hall meeting, Chicago In The Crosshairs, about the poverty and shootings in the black neighborhoods. Commenting were: the Superintendent, Lori Lightfoot, Andrea Zopp, Jamal Green, Jedidah Brown, Bobby Rush and others with a large black audience. Basically it all boiled down to, they need more resources (money) from the feds. What have they done with all of the money that has been pumped into these communities , and why should more money be pumped in if the past programs haven't worked. One answer may be Bobby Rush. Rush was wearing minister's garb (Roman collar) under his suit. One of his comments was: "Trump bring yo rump to Chicago." Rush, besides his nefarious gang past, is the ultimate slickster maybe ever better than Sharpton or Jesse Jackson. While a US Congressman he gets himself a "divinity degree" and starts a church, Beloved Community Christian Church of God in Christ. One of the things he does is sets up a "wellness center" there. Between 2008 and 2016 he gets $14,694,610.00 in government grants for the place. He also set up the Englewood Community Development Corporation and the Bobby L. Rush Center For Community Technology. AT&T donated $1,000,000 and Congress appropriated $175,000. All the money disappeared and he knows nothing. He was giving monies, a few hundred thousands, to his wife, mother, son and brother from campaign funds. Can you see the misappropriation of funds, the conflicts of interests? Trump should be very cautious if he decides to provide resources here as he may become the victim of a robbery! No money to Chicago until the politicians account for the missing or misspent money.

Either way, who doesn't apologize directly to the person that deserves the apology ( a lying p.o.s. doesn't) In the 2nd version....that would be a typical Ed move, apologize when it's not warranted ( just like he strips the cops " to protect them) What a dog shit place and it's getting worse ! Coming up on 21 years....hopefully only a few more to go. Glad I came on when I did, it sucks now.

I assume that whoever wrote this is educated to some point, most likely a college grad. Probably has a bachelors in English from one of our fine local colleges. As you stated , sir , it's so poorly written. I listened to the tape of the traffic stop , and Officer Figeuroa ( sp ? ) couldn't have been more professional. Rush makes my stomach turn

Maybe SE felt that he had to apologize to the reverend for being denied his day in court to prove that he is not above the law and had proof of insurance that he bought just before the court date? Typical ghetto bullshit!

I remember when the Rev. Actually had some competition during an election campaign. He was asked about an issue brought up by his opponents and he stated that, "a black man was hung once", followed by silence. End of interview, end of discussion.

Here are more interesting questions: Who actually made the complaint for a investigation to take place? Was it Rush or was it Johnson? Who signed the Affidavit against the involved Officers? What were the allegations against the Officers? Did the Investigator interview Rush? Did the investigator interview the Superintendent? Were the Officers made aware that the Superintendent and Rush spoke about the incident? If there was no affidavit prepared what supervisor in the IAD approved of this investigation to go forward? Was the attorney who represented the Officers made aware of the totality of the allegation? Did the attorney who represented the Officers request to see the Affidavit? Did the attorney who represented that Officers interview Johnson? Is the FOP going to ask Johnson to apologize to the Officers? These are some of the questions that come to mind when I read this post.

The real shame is the FOP! And the Officers. Unless the dept. promised those officers a promotion to keep their mouths shut, which is ok by myself, their are recourses that can be done and the FOP knows that! If the FOP doesn't help the officers they should get their own lawyers and then go after the congress fool and the FOP. If lodge 7 didn't want to help them, then the officers should notify state lodge then national! It is amazing how the FOP will send out email blast on special ed being dizzy but not about the problem with insurance, not having a listing of all candidates running for office on the web site and a web site that properly functions! The FOP should be outraged that the superintendent apologized and the officers did nothing wrong! The FOP should be taking ads in the papers and billboards getting the truth out, after all FOP has extra money for everyone's golf shoes? Enough with the rant, FOP do something we pay our dues we deserve better! Officers if you don't see what's going on and continue to be proactive shame on you! Don't ask me for $20 bucks for your benefit when this dept and city throw you under the bus!

OT - sorry to distract from the flogging of Bobby Rush which he so richly deserves, but I will.

I imagine there are quite a few landlords as well as renters among our readers.

I have just begun contacting my tenants with May 1st leases to see if they want to renew.

I contact them by email with a form letter.

I have now updated my form letter with the following language:

"Part of this increase is due to general market conditions. Part of this increase to due to the failure of the City of Chicago to adequately fund it’s pensions, which will result in an increase in property taxes. Part of this increase is due to a possible loss of federal funds due to Rahm Emanuel’s continued insistence on maintaining Chicago’s status as a Sanctuary City. If federal funds are lost, property taxes will increase. And if property taxes increase, your rent will increase. All to support immigrants who are illegal."

If Rahm can not be convinced to drop his Sanctuary City non-sense, let's turn the populace against him.

You have a lot of nerve stating that you or any of your trustees have
done a thing to help the retirees. You have not gone to court to fight
for us, the City offered a plan for non-medicare retirees that caused
most retirees to go bankrupt, and you lied to the retirees that
healthcare would be a benefit for our lifetime. Yes, you have forgotten
about the average cop, who was willing to risk his life everyday for the
citizens they served. Last but not least, you have the nerve to say
(we) meaning the FOP, will be successful with the proposed legislation.
Just like a politician, "throw out what works or create "NEW
LEGISLATION. If it wasn't for the "Class Action Lawsuit" and the
outstanding team of attorneys at Krislov and Assoc. willing to fight for
what is a contractual and legal obligation of the City of Chicago and
the FOP, we would be out in the cold. You have done absolutely nothing
and have left us hung out to dry!!!!!

Bye the way, what exactly do you do for retirees, oh that's right
nothing!!!!! I'm sure you will have all the benefits and perks when you
retiree, so what do care what happens to the rest of us. You have
forgotten about us and you blatantly lied that you haven't forgotten
about us. To late, You did forget about us and that's why we have no
healthcare benefits.

The information you sent out is meaningless and you have the nerve to
say that "COLA will be FOREVER". That's odd you said that our
HEALTHCARE BENEFITS would be FOREVER OR BETTER SAID "A LIFETIME BENEFIT"
too. The attorneys handling this Class Action Lawsuit keeps us updated
on a consistent and time sensitive basis. Stop acting like you care.
Stop acting like you are doing something. The union was useless when I
was on the job and the damage that has been sustained by your lack of
action and the National Faternal Order of Police is a disgrace to all
who "served" and "died in the line of duty" on the City of Chicago
Police Department.

Furthermore, the Pension Board states the City took our Healthcare
benefits away and the City states the Pension Board took our benefits
away. What good is a union contract that can't stand on it's own
merits. You guys "wheel and deal" with the city all the time, but only
when it benefits you, that's right I said it! I'm sure that all my years
of Union Dues lied your pockets well and were spent on lavish lunches,
lobbyists, and the like.

Unions are outdated and should be obsolete. At one time Unions served
the "working man well"!!! Now there are Federal, State, and local laws
enacted so that no employee is discriminated in any way and no employer
can abuse their employees.

May I remind you that you and all the trustees work and represent us,
its not the other way around. You do not work for the Mayor, the
lobbyist, the legislators, etc. Your primary purpose is to ALWAYS
negotiate the best possible benefits for us and to make sure that those
benefits are enforced. This last Presidential Election should have made
this very clear. It is very obvious that you and the trustees need to
refocus and regroup and DO YOUR JOB. You are elected officials by the
personnel of the Police Department and in my humble opinion, you all
need to be elected out of your positions because you have not
represented us in the capacity you were elected too.

As a matter of fact why do the state reps in Illinois also get free license plates for life? they make millions and cannot even buy plates? But then again the plates depict "Do you know who i am?"

Looks like President Trump is doing what he said he would do:

You come to America and protest and demand trillions from the taxpayers as we as citizens pay double for services, dutifully follow the laws and you refuse! Any other country you try to enter illegally and get caught your arrested and you get zero government services why is this allowed here?

it was version 1 not 2. rush apologized to eddie Johnson about the beef and rush still "felt" that on that day he was being profiled but never meant to get the officers in trouble. Bobby said that he guesses, "past emotions" were just brought to the top from the past dealings with the police and these police officers felt the brunt of these "past emotions"... so what bobby is saying is sorry to eddie but hes not. And no, lets be on the record here, eddie Johnson did not apologize to rush for this incident. rush was the one apologizing.

Last night on MSNBC that socialist dork Anchor Chris Hayes ran that town hall meeting, Chicago In The Crosshairs, about the poverty and shootings in the black neighborhoods. Commenting were: the Superintendent, Lori Lightfoot, Andrea Zopp, Jamal Green, Jedidah Brown, Bobby Rush and others with a large black audience. Basically it all boiled down to, they need more resources (money) from the feds. What have they done with all of the money that has been pumped into these communities , and why should more money be pumped in if the past programs haven't worked. One answer may be Bobby Rush. Rush was wearing minister's garb (Roman collar) under his suit. One of his comments was: "Trump bring yo rump to Chicago." Rush, besides his nefarious gang past, is the ultimate slickster maybe ever better than Sharpton or Jesse Jackson. While a US Congressman he gets himself a "divinity degree" and starts a church, Beloved Community Christian Church of God in Christ. One of the things he does is sets up a "wellness center" there. Between 2008 and 2016 he gets $14,694,610.00 in government grants for the place. He also set up the Englewood Community Development Corporation and the Bobby L. Rush Center For Community Technology. AT&T donated $1,000,000 and Congress appropriated $175,000. All the money disappeared and he knows nothing. He was giving monies, a few hundred thousands, to his wife, mother, son and brother from campaign funds. Can you see the misappropriation of funds, the conflicts of interests? Trump should be very cautious if he decides to provide resources here as he may become the victim of a robbery! No money to Chicago until the politicians account for the missing or misspent money.

Still, there's no reason to stop anybody anymore, after sunset in the ghetto until real Police reforms come from the Department and City Hall meddling.

There's a new Atty General now, Rush will not be granted an obama free pass like he gave to Rep. Maxie Waters (D-CA) and Charlie Rangel (D-NY).

Dear Attorney General Jeff Sessions,
Here is another reason we are the murder capital of the world. Democrats have controlled this city for over 40 years and have used entitlement programs as a replacement for their old school patronage army to be re-elected. The biggest pay to play conspiracy ever committed against the people of Chicago, our tax dollars used by government officials to provide for a cradle to grave existence for generations of welfare recipients. Well if you noticed the welfare recipients are never happy and in fact violence seems to dominate their life. In case you are wondering why? I have the answer. Welfare recipients were stripped of their dignity and self-worth by the democrats. They used entitlement programs to keep themselves in office. They oppressed the opportunities for personal growth, self-esteem and dignity by dictating their lives through entitlement living and in doing so they were insuring at least three outcomes. That thier voting base would always be there to re-elect them. That this class that they created would create an additional division of the classes ensuring that there would be crisis and conflicts to distract from the corruption they were committing daily. And finally programs upon programs that were disguised to help this class but the only real purpose was to enrich their friends and campaign contributors and throw a bone to the perineal race card players who would not exist if this class was never created. To all those who have been enslaved by systemic entitlements, you are being whored out and demeaned by the very people who you believe are your friends. Good luck in breaking free from the party who has promoted slavery since its inception.
Sadly this is the biggest municipal swamp in the country and far too many citizens of Chicago are becoming victims of these politicians failed policy’s and corruption. We desperately need the fair, impartial and law & order DOJ that you will assemble, to come to Chicago and drain this swamp so we can stand up again instead of treading sewage that is up to our neck and rising.

Fraternal Order of Police, Chicago Lodge #7
February 10, 2017
The Real Story is Revealed - Different From The Bobby Rush Story

Finally, the Bureau of Internal Affairs (BIA) acknowledges that what Police Officers face at work is not always black and white. On February 9, 2017, the BIA cleared two of our members (one white and one Hispanic) from any wrongdoing over false allegations of racial profiling made by U.S. Representative Bobby Rush-the onetime co-founder of the Illinois Black Panther Party.

Representative Rush wasted no time using his clout as a member of Congress when Officers pulled him over last summer on the south side in his $60,000 maroon Lexus SUV. Mr. Rush quickly cried "foul" and accused the Officers of racially profiling him during a traffic stop last summer on the south side. It is a narrative that many politicians seem to be spreading as "alternate facts" to the reality of policing.

As reported in a Chicago Tribune article, a 7½ minute video fortunately captured the entire incident. The media should spread this video like it does other inflammatory ones which tend to portray Officers in a negative light, but that won't sell papers. Here, the video conclusively shows the level of professionalism, respect and decorum exhibited by both Officers. Kudos to our two members!

Interestingly, the video also shows the indignation of an elected Official, who happens to be black. When stopped because the license plates did not match the vehicle Mr. Rush was driving, he quickly demanded to know the name and star number of the first Officer. He then goes on to say, "This is my district, and I have never been so embarrassed and humiliated." When the female Officers calmly responded that he should not be embarrassed, Mr. Rush curtly responded, "Don't tell me what I should be...I am what I am."

Not surprisingly, Mr. Rush quickly filed a complaint against the Officers later that day, in which he alleged what has become a common mantra in the City of Chicago: he had been pulled over for no reason other than the color of his skin. What Mr. Rush did not know (or did not care to learn) is that the Police Officers had been told at roll call earlier that day to be on the lookout for high-end vehicles because of a series of thefts which occurred in the area.

It did not take long for him to declare, ""My name is Congressman, U.S. Congressman Bobby Rush and this is a government-leased vehicle," like that should matter. After the BIA concluded its investigation, a CPD spokesmen praised the Officers in a statement: "The video footage from this traffic stop provides a firsthand look into the professional actions of Chicago police officers that occur throughout the city every day."

If that narrative were to spread throughout Chicago, just think how much better the relationship would be between the community and the women and men who protect our streets. That is a colorful thought during the midst of a dark winter.

Keep doing what you do on the streets. The Lodge is proud of the work performed by the women and men in blue who risk their lives every day. Stay safe!

Regarding that show that Bobby Rush was on, Chicago In The Crosshairs , by MSNBC it is available on Youtube now. This town hall meeting was hosted by Chris Hayes who is married to Kate Shaw an attorney who was a special counsel to President Obama and the daughter of Andy Shaw of the BGA. One of the guests he introduced was Ameena Matthews from Pause for Peace but he failed to mention that she is the daughter of gang leader Jeff Fort BPS-El Rukn and she was fired from Ceasefire for doctoring a timecard. Others that were mentioned by a prior poster were Rush, Jamal Green, Jedidiah Brown. The bias is really apparent with Hayes putting his arm around everyone. The anti Trump feeling is also quite obvious. They attribute all of the violence, or killings in their community to the lack of resources, education, opportunity. What they want is more federal dollars poured in. The take no responsibility or accountability for problems in their community. They are the perpetual victims of society enrolled in the grievance industry. So Trump, we don't like you but send more money with no strings attached.

12FEB@03:09hrs. - Thank you for posting FOP VP Casciano's eloquent, but inadequate, letter. Hey Ray, your letter does not adequately repudiate Rush's criminal actions of filing a spurious allegation on an affidavit. It does not refute Supt. Johnson's apology for proper police procedures to a corrupt politician. You and Dean need to do more than compose a letter for the FOP website. Your feeble efforts during this anti police culture and mayoral administration prove only one contention - Lodge 7 officers and board members are a self serving paper tiger which needs to be replaced!

the officers involved need to sue bobby rush for defamation and slander. if he signed an affidavit they should demand he be charged with perjury and any appropriate charges. if the city or department refuse, they too should be sued.

No doubt that Rush is a racist and always has been. Since nobody, or at best very few, know who the officers are a lawsuit for Slander or Libel is not likely. Proving Perjury in an affidavit that merely reflects his perception of what occurred is also unlikely. Unfortunate, but true.

Now is the time to get Special Ed on camera with the officers lawyers to testify what he and Rush discussEd. And ask him if he recorded or wore his body camera while talking to him.

If you ever want to get a good laugh about Andy Shaw talk to the retired cooper in Finance. He has a story from the 80's that will make you wish you around back then. Things were fun before cell phone cameras. The story underscores exactly what a complete jag off Andy Shaw is.

With this debacle Eddie Johnson lost all leadership credibility he might have had or had any chance at having.

By unilaterally accepting the allegation at face value without any consideration of presumption of innocence or due process he in effect declared the officers wrong.

He slapped everyone in the face by throwing the officers under the entire CTA with his public grovelling apology.

He needs to public ally acknowledge this to sworn members. In front of the media.

And the officers: please consider sueing Rush.

In the days of Rush and the Black Panthers, Rush was an informant and reported to the old Red Squad on the Chicago Police Dept. This is something that has been kept a secret for years and if the Panthers knew he was giving information about their operations, he would have been killed. An example of this was when he and Brooks the panthers administer of education were arrested for UUW. The two Area 4 Task Force Officers received a phone call in the 13th dist. by Chicago Police Intelligence to just charge Brooks and not to arrest Rush. He was a snitch then and he still is a snitch now. If any of you new police have anything to do with this shithead, have a witness or record everything, he'll jam you with bullshit whenever he can.

Not a Rush supporter but plenty of dope boys in the hood to stop besides senior citizens!

Here's a little tip for you: sometimes you don't know who's in a car until you walk up to that window and look at them. Another tip for you: despite Bobby's belief, senior citizens like himself can often be found driving drunk, buying drugs, selling drugs, beating their wives, burglarizing homes and businesses, stealing cars, and committing other crimes. Just as race should not determine who gets pulled over, neither should age. You can't possibly be the police if you make idiotic statements like the one in your post.

Ray Ray, how about suing on the officers behalf? This is the perfect case to file a lawsuit. Get off your lazy ass and help us. Isn't that what you are suppose to do? This has got to be the worst group ever.

If it were me and Rush dragged my good name through the mud and attempted to get me fired, I would sue him for what ever he is worth.

Tired of these emails addressed to the rank and file. They're preaching to the wrong people. Don't tell us shit we already know, don't feed us the shit sandwich speech, we're proud of you, keep up the good work.

Get out there, with a loud and assertive voice, tell the City and its residents that we will not put up with political agenda that's out to destroy a Police Officers lawful and contractual protections.

Tell us that the FOP will NOT negotiate or give up any protections within the existing contract.

The IAD Sgt was under intense pressure from Special Ed to punish these officers, but because he is a stand up guy, he refused because that's against policy. And Special Ed wonders why nobody is doing shit.
Trump, please get your rump to Chicago and start looking at the Gold Stars running this department. No confidence vote needed.

If you believe that garbage then you're a dick just like the IAD sgt. This was a simple case without enough fact to go anywhere. Simple as that. IAD didn't perform a miracle and there was no pressure to find the officers did wrong. You fell for the same old rumor and media hype as always

7:48 PM is an asshat. I bet he believes all promotional exams are on the up and up too..... That's why this departments a mess. Too many 7:48 PMs still hanging around thinking they know it all. An opinion with no facts to support it. Politics.....

Bobby Rush is a disgrace to the House of Representatives

Leader of an organization that caused death and destruction which was fueled by hate of another race.

Now he uses his authority as an elected official to try to end the careers of 2 officers..

Shameful actions from a dishonest person.
