Piling it On

As the First Degree Murder case falls apart (lack of intent), Kim Foxxx fires her Grand Jury Shotgun at the wall, hoping that something will stick:
  • The Chicago police officer who fatally shot Laquan McDonald in 2014 was indicted this month on 16 counts of aggravated battery — one for each bullet fired at the 17-year-old.

    Officer Jason Van Dyke, 38, was indicted in 2015 on six counts of first-degree murder and one count of official misconduct. Those charges still stand.

    But the new charges point to possible worries that prosecutors won't be able to convict Van Dyke on the more severe charges, according to Chicago-Kent College of Law professor and former public defender Richard Kling.

    "There are myriad possibilities," Kling said. "Are they doing it because they realize there's a problem with the murder charge? Do they think aggravated battery is a more appropriate charge than first-degree murder? Knowing he's a police officer, do they think there's a good chance he won't get convicted?"

    Kling, who has handled hundreds of murder cases in his career, said the 16 aggravated battery charges could mean prosecutors are worried the original murder indictment won't stick — or they could simply signify a new legal strategy.
This new "strategy" better cut both ways. Every pull of a trigger, every swing of a fist - it all better be charged as individual crimes against everyone when it happens. We've said it dozens of times here - cops aren't above the law, but they aren't below it either. This looks like Foxxx has no clue as to what she's doing, so she's taking direction from her political masters.

Think twice about getting involved in proactive activity. Seems to me this is a dangerous precedent. Wasn't it a couple weeks ago where IPRA investigation of an old case said the first two shots were justified not the third. Does this mean they are going to indict every time deadly force is used and finds that shots one and two are authorized but not three,

How do you charge him with 16 counts of Agg Batt when every round he fired didn't strike? I believe he was only hit with 9 of the 15-16 that were fired...That would be 9 counts....

Aggravated battery will be an easier charge to prove. That is the reason for going with it. First Degree Murder was overcharging and the prosecution would have to prove that the PO intended to kill McDonald prior to his arriving at the scene. Unless they have audio tape or his partner's statement to that effect, they will have a very hard time proving premeditation. Don't know why they didn't just charge him with 2nd Degree or Involuntary Homicide or even Manslaughter. Those charges would be easier to prove and make more sense. He's got a very good lawyer as I recall and his own lawyer might have wanted the higher charges because of the difficulty of proving them. Kim Fox is doing the smart thing if she is looking for a conviction. All she needs to do is prove one count of Agg Batt to put the PO in jail for 20 years or ore.

This case was tainted from the get go.

First off, the SA Anita Alvarez signed off on the Justifiable Homicide. But when the sh!t hit the fan, she threw JVD under the bus in an effort to save her career.

The six murder counts for killing one person with minor word changes was a political stunt to show the public how tough she was on police. And to make her case sound more impressive than it actually was. Or is.

Now the 16 AggBat counts are just more shoveling.

This is a case no one wants to get to trial.

They just blinked.

So they do not know which shot killed McDonald. We all knew this.

But a judge will have to determine any of the 16 can be blamed.

If McDonald was still a threat after the first shot was fired the rest don't matter.

DANNY will only have to establish McDonald refused direct orders by officers to drop the knife.

Next they will indict the other officers on scene just like Baltimore. To see who
wants to aid the prosecution.

In mean time CPD trying to fire all of them........

If anyone needed proof that this is a Political Show Trial,as in Cuba or the old Soviet Union, this is the proof! This is the pattern, that we have seen in other High Pressure trials, where the Prosecutor sets an extremely high standard for charging. We saw this in the case against Casey Anthony in Florida, where without ever establishing a cause of death, the Prosecutor charged her with Murder. We saw it with Trayvon Martin, and we saw it with the cops in Baltimore. Prosecutors in an effort to appease the mob of Democrat Rioters will "Overcharge", then figure they can Plea Bargain down. Fortunately for the defendants in all of the aforementioned cases; unless your attorney is the Public Defender, you would be a fool to plea bargain Murder Charges, unless there is clear Intent or Premeditation. Remember, the standard is BEYOND A REASONABLE DOUBT, in a criminal prosecution, and in all of the aforementioned cases, there was clearly enough doubt to allow the defendants to prevail. The last time I recall seeing this blow for blow type of indictment was in the Rodney King case, where after the cops won in state court, and the largest and most expensive riot in California history took place; the Feds went after the Officers and convicted them in Federal Court with a jury of "Urban" jurors, some of whom were angry and wanted Revenge. And if you recall those offices and their Sgt. did prison time. Make no mistake about it, whatever the verdict or circumstance; there will be Major Demonstrations, and if enough outside agitators come in to town there will be violence. And this is going to be bigger than Jamal Green's nonsense. One has to wonder, is this the result of the rejection of a Plea Deal? Issues of Dept. Policy will come into play; and the prosecution must believe that the Defendant can Justify the first shots, but not latter shots. Suddenly this case is far more complex than the public has been led to believe. And I sincerely hope, that somehow or someway, Alvarez and Rahm himself, are forced to testiy, as to how and why, if this man was so dangerous, he was allowed to roam free, until their Cover-Up of the video was exposed! Make no mistake about it, this trial will be the adhesive that seals Rahm's political fate. Shitcaga Values! Act and YOU will be prosecuted, just wave at the knife wielding teens, and let them go, they are just troubled "Youths"! Baby "G"

Remember these 16 new counts when you are responding to these type of calls. Always drive safely and don't go thru those red lights, as you may get involved in a traffic crash. That alone can bring on discipline under the new cr matrix guide, and possible lawsuit. Best thing is to respond in a safe manner and the offender should be gone by the time you get there.

Looks like it is time to review all the cases in the past all the cases current of the thugs The felons all of them all should be charged with aggravated battery this is totally ridiculous what Kimmy is doing. This girl obviously has no business working in any part of law and order this is now front page news a story from the dishonest media. Again and again The city of Chicago the state of Illinois the county of clock shows a complete disregard for police officers never ever anywhere are police bastardized as much as in this corrupt county this corrupt city this corrupt state. The prosecutors fully know they totally fucked up on this case simply because there is no case there is no murder you would think that someone would've stopped this freight train from moving forward rapidly since the video was held in order for the mayor to be reelected! Police officers in the city of Chicago can clearly see the total lack of respect not just from the command staff not just from the elected not just from the diss honest media know this is a clear violation of any sense of respect for the law.

How many more punches how many more of this can the Chicago Police Department take? The hard-working blue shirts coppers are really being totally stressed on this once great job the citizens the honest text payers obviously have been silent these people must speak out then yesterday the front page of the Chicago Tribune have the story of people moving out of the city due to the violence and the wine and cheese club The elected just go on anon laughing smiling thinking everything is so hilarious and the minions that surround them laugh at their silly stupid jokes as the blood is flowing all over the carnage is excessive the crime is out of control and yet you blame the police officers what other city does this on a constant basis? Any city that is run by Republicans the red states are almost all 100% in support of their police officers the best thing for Chicago police officer to do is to continue to stay fetal. The bosses they will come they will grow they will demand activity they will demand production a great way to lose everything you have your freedom your good name your family your career is to have the go get them attitude that the boss will tell you you had better do this or do that. Those days are gone just follow this story and please do not say they will never do that to me you could be the next contestant on the wheel of how stupid was I to listen to the boss show.

Don't forget also the coppers from the eighth district that are suspended with no pay and the sergeant from the eighth district that is also suspended with no pay all the good he has done all the good that night was look over the report and approve it which is done plenty of times and every district in every area constantly. Now will other officers be Dragged into this next phase? We are in turbulent times may God Almighty please let's the police officers everywhere and especially the police officers in the city of Chicago amen.

When someone dies at the hands of another person, and the prosecution feels the killing was unlawful, the appropriate charge is one that involves causing the death of another person. Aggravated battery charges when someone dies is like charging criminal damage when someone breaks down a door to a home and rapes the resident. If they can't get agg batt to stick, what's next? Are they going to charge him with reckless discharge? You think he unlawfully killed someone, you charge murder, not a bunch of random lesser crimes that led up to the death. I may be wrong here, but I don't believe there has ever been a case where a single victim was shot, stabbed, struck, or otherwise battered, and the offender was charged with one count for each time the victim was struck. Charging 16 counts for one incident involving one "victim" is just asinine. It would be a different story if this was standard practice, but we all know it's not. This is a simple case of charging someone differently based solely on his status as a police officer. Have they somehow determined which shot killed him? To charge 16 counts for 16 shots, the last shot would have to be the kill shot. You can't commit an aggravated battery on a dead body. If he's alive and holding a knife when the last shot hits, he's still a deadly threat, and an armed assailant refusing to drop a deadly weapon. To say he was still alive until shot 16 hit him actually weakens the prosecution's case.

It was not murder it was not aggravated battery. It was an armed assailant who refused lawful orders from a uniformed on duty officer. The force used was justified which is why the police at the time signed off on the use of force and which is also why at the time the state's attorney office did not pursue charges. What is traggic is that now the media gets involved and they think there was a cover up when really there was nothing to cover up from the beginning. All bs. He'll be found not guilty. The media will cause a city wide riot and it will all be the big bad policemans fault for doing their job. In the mean time arrests are at an all time low and murders are at an all time high.

Instead of just admitting this was a bad shoot and charging this guy fairly and rightly, the black lives matter crowd appeasement went into overdrive trying to present the idea that this man went out to hunt him down a black man and murder him that night. None of us knows why he shot when he did - as he was the only one to shoot, much less why he shot him over and over and over and over and over. We do know it was WRONG (just as we know hiding the video for election purposes was wrong).

I like the way SCC framed this. Cops are not above the law but they are not below it too. In the exact same frame of mind in calling for charges to be levied the same way for punches thrown etc being charged for each instance, lets continue on and admit that the EXEMPTIONS for police officers are wrong as well.

To answer the questions though - lets see this for what it really is. Foxx and crew WANT this guy to get off, but not to protect him. They want him to go unpunished so that the BLM crowd can riot and loot to avenge the whole situation and draw attention to how lawless the CPD officers are and how racist Chicago policing is. Right? You know it! Remember, the folks out on the street are gonna blame the p0lice, not the prosecutors office or their elected bosses.

The fix is in. There is no doubt about it. Prepare for it folks, its coming. Indeed, it is being arranged as we speak. They gotta point everythign AWAY from them hiding the video...and if it takes a riotous debacle out in the streets to do it, then they will arrange it.

Therefore, if murder doesn't work how can you charge him with agg-batt when the knife carrying nut is dead. Again I'm not condoning what this fool did only pointing out the charges don't fit what occurred.

"How do you charge him with 16 counts of Agg Batt when every round he fired didn't strike? I believe he was only hit with 9 of the 15-16 that were fired...That would be 9 counts...."

16 shots 9 hits = 7 were warning shots. Any non fatal hits clearly were also warning shots.

Think twice about getting involved in proactive activity. Seems to me this is a dangerous precedent. Wasn't it a couple weeks ago where IPRA investigation of an old case said the first two shots were justified not the third. Does this mean they are going to indict every time deadly force is used and finds that shots one and two are authorized but not three,

He reacted in accordance to his training when confronting an ARMED OFFENDER who was closing the distance gap while refusing to drop his weapon you ass. He was responding to calls from fellows officers for assistance. In short, he was doing his job. Whether it hurts the feelings of the public, outrages the family and politicians or sickens morons like you the fact is he did nothing wrong. The OFFENDER chose his actions, he chose his fate. What sickens me is goofs like you saying he has damaged the Department and me. You dont ever get the speak for me you ass. What sickens me is the grandstanding of lawyers in this city all looking for the almighty $$. What sickens me is the lack of leadership in the Department and the FOP who allow this continued bashing of the job I take pride in having by the media in this city. What sickens me is that alot of good people are being made an example of all in the name of politics. But what pisses me off is everyone concluded it was a good shooting, everyone.......till the mayor decided it was going to hurt his re-election. Then it was the crime of the century. Let them riot.....go ahead...who cares.

Obviously he's not guilty this is kimmy and Toni doing anything and everything to make any charge they can make up stick this is totally failed prosecution they know this was wrong grand standing and pandering to the tags and the gang bangers and the Fallons this is going to show how inept they all are. Jason as a fellow police officer a brother in blue extremely sorry to see how you are being dragged through the mud and throwing under the bus in the name of political expediency this was all caused by the elected and the police department holding back and not standing up for the police officers yourself and the others that were on duty that night. Jason hoping and praying that your lawsuit is huge hopefully your lawyer you're at your self your family and the other officers that were also suspended without pay pending termination are all involved in this lawsuit this should be The biggest award in the cities history also go after the county the states attorney the former state attorney that dishonest media and everyone else what they have done to you brother is unconscionable.

Any police officer working today thinking this could never happen to them better stand in front of the mirror take a good look at themselves and say there by the grace of God go I, saying that just to say that we are all police officers we must watch out for each other we also must watch out for our actions the people that are intent on harming or killing others Will not stop this has been going on for generations the elected the solutions they have is to constantly throw text payers money at them giving away billions of dollars freely that we work hard four. You must especially you young officers stay fetal follow all the rules make sure that you are watching exactly what you are doing if your partner is too aggressive make sure for their own good and your own good you school them and make sure you follow the dishonest media not sure if Jason how many other officers the working police are being thrown under the bus.

This morning Erin McElroy of ch 9 reported on the new charges against JVD and said that JVD shot McDonald while walking down the street. No mention about him being an offender of a crime, or walking down the middle of the street holding a knife. How about taking the extra 5 seconds to say why McDonald was shot. Agenda-free reporting is dead.

Aggravated battery will be an easier charge to prove. That is the reason for going with it. First Degree Murder was overcharging and the prosecution would have to prove that the PO intended to kill McDonald prior to his arriving at the scene. Unless they have audio tape or his partner's statement to that effect, they will have a very hard time proving premeditation. Don't know why they didn't just charge him with 2nd Degree or Involuntary Homicide or even Manslaughter. Those charges would be easier to prove and make more sense. He's got a very good lawyer as I recall and his own lawyer might have wanted the higher charges because of the difficulty of proving them. Kim Fox is doing the smart thing if she is looking for a conviction. All she needs to do is prove one count of Agg Batt to put the PO in jail for 20 years or ore.

It was not murder it was not aggravated battery. It was an armed assailant who refused lawful orders from a uniformed on duty officer. The force used was justified which is why the police at the time signed off on the use of force and which is also why at the time the state's attorney office did not pursue charges. What is traggic is that now the media gets involved and they think there was a cover up when really there was nothing to cover up from the beginning. All bs. He'll be found not guilty. The media will cause a city wide riot and it will all be the big bad policemans fault for doing their job. In the mean time arrests are at an all time low and murders are at an all time high. Good job media and politicians.

Now that the Dept. is actively recruiting Dicks for OIS teams, remember the following.....

It doesn't matter that a 'great guy' is heading up that new unit. It doesn't matter is the State law gets amended (properly worded).

Keep in mind that you are one Liberal Civilian's (opposing) interpretation away from both losing your job and/or getting indicted over your OIS supplementary report.

Our Supe only recently admitted ignorance of the new State law regarding OIS. He is either a fool or a liar. Your D2A ass will be the first one indicted.

Remember how the Brass all walked away? ROY. MCNAUGHTON. O'DONNELL. FOR SHAME YOU MOTHERFUCKERS! Remember how those who merely responded all got "Laquan'ed"?

Remember, police work is oftentimes ugly. Ugliness does not equate criminality. With the advent of pervasive video, the public is now getting schooled on the ugliness of man and subsequently of police work. Do NOT be that scapegoat.

Remember JVD and also our brothers and sisters in 008. Godspeed to them and to the person above who prayed for them. Amen!

You DO NOT have to prove premeditation in Illinois for first degree murder: prosecutor must prove beyond a reasonable doubt that he/she
-Intended to kill or do great bodily harm (or knew that the act would do so); or
-Knew that the act created a strong probability of causing death or great bodily harm; or
-Was attempting or committed a forcible felony other than second degree murder (i.e. rape).

How many times do we know who the offender of an aggravated battery is and we don't charge because the victim won't testify or sign complaints?

If the State will sign complaints for aggravated battery in this case, will they be signing aggravated battery in all cases when the victim won't sign the complaint?

Has this ever been done before?

But what pisses me off is everyone concluded it was a good shooting, everyone.......till the mayor decided it was going to hurt his re-election. Then it was the crime of the century. Let them riot.....go ahead...who cares. I would rather have riots and see justice and common sense prevail for Van Dyke and the Officers who are stripped and fired than seeing no riots or conflicts for their false trial and convictions all in the name of politics and political correctness.

Well, sir or madam, while you had the "SCC megaphone", why didn't you tell people about it and supply the e-address of where to make the donation? This is the first I heard of it and I would guess there are others who also are just now hearing about it, so please tell everyone where to donate.

I cannot imagine the meeting where they decided on this strategy. This case was a loser for the prosection from the beginning and now they just fudged it up even more. Thankfully, they have become Van Dyke's good luck charm. And, when he is found not guilty, let the assholes riot. Like we should care when they act out of control.

And when the next innocent citizen gets two or three rounds in them from a shithead gangbanger shooting at someone else, I will approve two or three agg bat charges on that one too. And then I will sit back and watch the ASAs head explode as they try to bullshit themselves into explaining why THAT one can't be charged that way.

No one on this dept that has a brain has ever disputed that it was a bad shoot and excessive force. There was time, there was distance, there was shielding. But this was in no way murder one. The officer was still in the commission of his office and in performance of his duties. What Alvarez did was not only spineless but very stupid and reckless by charging murder one. All in conceding to cityhall and the political pressure to pacify the community in order to cast a shadow on the political sins committed in regards to the withholding of the video. No way in any court of respectable jurisprudence will that charge stick.
Now in a feeble attempt by this prosecutor to get back to balance, they're gonna overcharge with these agg bat counts. Which sounds stange to me ( but maybe that's why I'm not a layer) given McDonald died as a result. So shitty charges and over sentencing must occur. Either way anything less than VanDykes head on the platter will not be sufficient now. Because thats what our 'leaders' promised the community. When it doesn't go down that way, all hell is gonna break loose.

Time to file an ARDC complaint against the original prosecutors for using the garrity protected statements in the grand jury indictment

3/24/2017 01:20:00 AM

Garrity Rights apply to the right of a public employee not to be compelled to incriminate themselves by their employer. These rights are based on the 1967 United States Supreme Court decision Garrity v. New Jersey. Garrity Rights apply only to public employees, because they are employed by the government itself.

Loudermill Rights require due process before a public employee can be dismissed from their job. These rights are based on the 1985 United States Supreme Court decision Cleveland Board of Education v. Loudermill. Generally, these rights require a public employer to offer to have a "pre-termination" meeting with the affected employee; at this meeting, the employer presents their grounds for termination, and the employee is given the opportunity to respond.
Do Garrity Rights apply if I'm investigated by an outside agency?

If you are a public employee and are investigated by an outside agency, Garrity Rights can still apply if you are clearly subject to severe disciplinary action or termination if you refuse to answer the outside agency's questions. Typically, your own agency will order you to cooperate with the outside investigator; if this order is made, and the penalty for refusing to comply is made clear and is severe (generally termination), then Garrity Rights apply.

Aggravated battery will be an easier charge to prove. That is the reason for going with it. First Degree Murder was overcharging and the prosecution would have to prove that the PO intended to kill McDonald prior to his arriving at the scene. Unless they have audio tape or his partner's statement to that effect, they will have a very hard time proving premeditation. Don't know why they didn't just charge him with 2nd Degree or Involuntary Homicide or even Manslaughter. Those charges would be easier to prove and make more sense. He's got a very good lawyer as I recall and his own lawyer might have wanted the higher charges because of the difficulty of proving them. Kim Fox is doing the smart thing if she is looking for a conviction. All she needs to do is prove one count of Agg Batt to put the PO in jail for 20 years or ore.

And you got your law degree in what university?

JVD not guilty the judge will see it that way,because it is the only lawful way, bet the judge is looking to move out of here day after verdict that will be not guilty!

Why does no one that is trashing JVD talking about why the police were there in the first place? I'm going to honor your argument and I can't wait to hear fellow officers call me a fucking moron... black officer, white female offender. Let's add in something you all apparently hate to consider.... the offender attempted to slash a pedestrians thrown with a knife and was stabbing car tires. Second part, who cares, got it. First part, however, attempted to stab an innocent person. The police arrive and the offender attempts to stab the officers through the window and slash a tire I believe. Again, if that knife would have broken window and pierced the kneck or eye of the officer, I'd say the convo might be a little different, yes? But it didn't so let's pretend like none of that happened, right?

Now black PO shows up. It's scientifically proven that a knife is more deadly than a handgun at the distance of this shooting. Stupid facts again, I know, sorry.

Me: "good work, officer, it's tragic but I support you."

Now now now, my little race-baiting cohorts... here's my hypothetical/real-life comparative situation for you: recently there was a north side shooting in which a male officer (don't know/care his race) shot and killed a, wait for it, KNIFE-WIELDING FEMALE WHITE OFFENDER. She "suffered" from mental illness. I say good shoot. Her illness notwithstanding, does not deprive others of their personal right to safety, nor does it preclude officers from ordering her to drop said deadly weapon, nor does it preclude officers from legally and justifiably eliminating this threat.

So my questions are now posed to you who are all on the bandwagon of fuck JVD:
- why do you not speak of the offender's actions prior to encounter?
-why do you not see the moment when the offender begins turning with knife elevated and at same time JVD fires reversed course and collapses?
- why not allow his toxicology reports?
- why not release juvi records pertaining to violence?
- why is the NOrth side female armed with a knife a complete non-issue for you?

Yeah, let's talk hipocricy, stupidity and racism but you may want to take a hard look in the mirror first.

Never mind the facts, brother. A real warrior doesn't need to be there.

We're suffering from ❄️ On the job who want to seem progressive and "understand" but only to the point where it will save their own skin when they're conducting legitimate police business. JVD was in a good shoot, a legally justified shoot, especially if you take the facts and leave out the hyperbole, such as race and tough guy officers who are invincible and full of false information. If the POS wasn't a violent heathen, high and running all around the street, slashing at the throats of pedestrians and at occupied squad cars, dropped the knife when ordered to repeatedly, well....things may be different, Monday morning QBs.

Couldn't agree more. You can't generalize about retirees. Don't they realize how many retirees have sons and daughters on the job and would rather have them receive additional benefits and vote accordingly. I am retired and knew what I was retiring into including the healthcare that was started three years ago when the city announced that it would be ending the city subsidy in three years. Very unhappy at that time and still am but we will see what happens in court
I for one would rather see my son benefit from FOP negotiations and I vote accordingly

You also said wc and capt, which leads me to believe that you meant district commander when you used DC. I'm 100% sure that's what you meant. You can pretend you meant something else, but you can't pretend you didn't include wc and capt. Tell us what you meant by those. Because neither of them can do a felony override. It's funny that I quote the order for you, and you call me a troll. You should be even more embarrassed if a troll knew your orders better than you do.
