Deliberations Continue

Closing arguments and jury instructions progressed faster than a lot of people had predicted. The possibility of a Friday verdict and a full weekend of protests across Chicago is a distinct possibility.

Links to some articles can be found all over the right hand side of the blog. As we stated earlier, we're deployed, same as you, so don't expect timely updates for a bit.

Stay safe.

UPDATE: Gaughan was kind of a dick today. Instead of holding a closed hearing regarding threats made against the defendant's daughter, he lambasted him in public and on camera. You'd think that a judge who has been living with part of McCarthy's command staff for at least the past decade would have attempted to appear impartial.

Sunday is going to be the fun day. Just wait and see how that one turns out. 50.000 runners with friends and family coming to watch? National media and eyes on Chicago? I’ll be anyone a sandwich that’s when the bullshit pops off. No matter what the verdict is.

OT: A lot of coppers(??) do nothing but bitch & whine about the FOP on this board, and are too lazy/stupid to contact them themselves about issues that concern them.

Here's an FOP win:

https://fop7blog.org/news/2018/10/3/savini-blinks

Savini's a bitch. No question. His boss is about as big a bitch for letting this idiot prattle on, and this article concedes that Savini's not done, but the next time YOU have a question as to "where's the FOP", "FOP are you listening?" or call them FlOP, get on the goddam phone/email/etc. and express your concerns. Like a man.

Disclaimer: I am not a member of the FOP board, not an FOP rep, and have no ties to anyone who is. I'm just a guy who insists that you put your money where your mouth is, and insists that YOU need to get involved, and not let someone else do your legwork.

As Judge Gaughan was preparing to release the jurors on for deliberations VanDyke was a few minutes late in arriving back to the court explaining that one of his daughters had been threatened. He was admonished and told he better provide proof or the judge will either raise or revoke his bond. Now think how many times you have been sitting in court while a judge is in his chambers chatting or playing the stock market. Or when attorneys don't show up and the judge says, oh lets pass this case until the lawyer gets here while you just sit there even longer. Or when the defendants walk in an hour late after they were BFW earlier in the call and the judge doesn't even take them into custody or their bond. I can think of hundreds of times this has occured in my time on the job. This Gaughan appears to be pompous and arrogant. So you tell VanDyke your late, end of story. That's all VanDyke needs at this time, more pressure.

There were numerous calls yesterday to the FOP concerning the officers placed on the 12 hour days .Two were late in the day and they were ; 1.) three police being assigned to the 12 th District foot patrol placed in a three man cage car and 2.) in the 003rd District the Commander addressing roll calls and telling officers they could not wear black gloves or have their batons in their hands .Both of these were addressed immediately . A phone call was immediately placed to MLAS and this was stopped . Fop cannot address situations unless they are aware of it . Do not place yourself in jeopardy by riding in a locked cage car .

My friend’s father is part of Gaughan’s annual Mexico trip. Here’s what’s going on with this senile judge. He knows that he screwed up by not recusing himself from this very high profile case because he lives with former commander Linda Flores. And he didn’t because it would have called into question all his other criminal cases. Even though Judge Evans said that he’d never had a PO defendant so it was fine. So Gaughan has felt that he has to be a dick to Van Dyke to show that he’s not showing favoritism, because that would call into question his decision not to recuse himself.

So, maybe when the conviction comes down - and it will, folks - there might be a good basis for it being overturned on appeal.

I am on furlo so I won't be out there with you, but if any of you need help on the home front, please feel free to contact me for help. I'm a mother of two small children, so I know how hard it can be to manage our own responsibilities and fulfill our obligations to this City, this Department and one another. I'm a Northsider, but I have no problem driving to help any of my brothers and sisters out. So if any of you need help with childcare, letting your pet out, checking in on elderly family members, ect ect, I have posted my email address. Stay frosty boys and girls...

Rahm owns this indeed. He orchestrated this and pays off the absent mother 5 million. Another Democrat clown who runs this city down to nothing and taxed the shit out of the middle class. Let’s not forget him gloating about taking away the retiree health benefits. And he then runs out of the city with his tail between his legs and his millions in the bank. Don’t forget the wedding dress this time.

Ps: will you be in the city when it goes up for grabs or out of town at a convention ? Perhaps visiting you kid at college ? How about searching for another crawl space for the infamous wedding dress ? I’m sure the brain trusts that you promoted in the CPD have it all under control, including the noble test cheaters and the number of merits who can’t pass promotional exams but have been bestowed leadership positions. The civilians should feel protected with these circus clowns, too. Maybe our very own superintendent will walk arm in arm again and make a spectacle of himself breaking laws along with the in-your-face “clergy” who encourage violence and disruption.

For the sake of tax paying citizens and all the innocent people who can’t even walk their dogs in peace, praying for thunderstorms this next week to help keep the throngs of two legged wild animals at bay. Stay in your homes and protect your family and property.

Could be two reasons. One couldn’t qualify as a expert witness and two didn’t he say while questioned during a campaign rally when asked about McDonald say he stripped him after seeing the video. Might have backfired on the defense. Also judge might have thought it was irrelevant what the bosses thought as they might be biased

In my humble opinion, how the police command staff views or judges an incident has no real bearing on how the legal system views that same incident. It is irrelevant. In the same vein, the legal system can state your actions are within the law, but the department can fire you for employment violations.

Maybe it could come out in appeal of the sure to be guilty verdict. Terrible job by the defense but they got what they paid for. A second team lawyer.

To have a trial at all is to give them an excuse to riot. The decision to have a trial was either deliberately malicious or stupid. They will riot because they have periodically rioted for decades, and their benefits have increased for decades -

For the rioting, looting, angry mob that sees the police.. Why not have the national guard deployed instead of CPD? I hope there isn't a vindictive plan by an ousted Mayor. If things get ugly, CPD may have to retreat and the call for the national guard may have to be made. This has the possibility to be a major embarrassment for Chicago and the ousted Mayor as he's on a beach somewhere enjoying the good life. Stay safe. Stay smart.

You proactive coppers are part of the problem as you continue to give the city and the dept proactive police work all while enabling their liberal agenda as they routinely spit in your face.

Hopefully, Jason van Dyke is released, but the city will be a hell zone.
Too many already talking about riots, looting, etc.
Faker has ordered a protest. No work, school, shopping.
I pray for all officers who work this weekend.
Go fetal. Seriously.
I also hope legally armed citizens protect their families and property.

Don't know if the verdict will be reported today, but they should hold off until Monday or Tuesday.
Prayers for you guys and gals.

With regard to JVD returning late, the judge is either really stupid or was just trying to again be a pompous, dick. When Herbert said the school, obviously he meant the staff, the administrators, not the school building. Who the hell wouldn't know that. Then he said you're not making any sense. He could have said, you mean the staff, give me a name. May be he should retire if he couldn't grasp what Herbert meant. And why wasn't it done in chambers. Perhaps because he likes a bit of theater and to play the tough guy judge. Gaughan is an arrogant asshat.

Van Dyke was very emotional, explaining he was late returning to court because his daughters were threatened at school. Judge Gaughan demanded more information to determine if the threat was credible or else he was thinking of revoking bail.

Dan Herbert: "High school kids were walking around the school saying, 'Which one is Jason Van Dyke's daughter because we are going to get her at school. So that wasn't enough

Judge Gaughan: "Who was a witness to this?"

Herbert: "The school for one."

Judge: "So you're going to bring the building in? C'mon."

Herbert: "Judge this is a real threat."

Judge: "I mean you're not making sense the way you're talking like this."

Herbert: "The school thought it was a threat so they pulled the daughter into the police room because not only are they saying they're going to attack his daughter, then they start passing out pictures so that all of these kids could find out who his daughter is so they can attack her. So yeah, I think that's a threat judge."

The judge decided to let it go and didn't revoke bail. It's unclear if the students making the threats were ever tracked down.

==============
No one within the police department, including the super, has any say in whether this is a crime or not. The higher ups of the PD are only authorized to determine if an action was in accordance with police department rules and regulations.

Whether an action is in accordance with those rules and regulations is not relevant to whether it is a crime or not. By the rules of evidence, the judge is only allowed to permit relevant testimony.

What a railroad job on officer Van Dyke! Compitialation to the threat of rioting influenced this verdict. How can being not guilty of official misconduct and being found guilty of second degee murder( as last minute charge suggested by the judge ) be fair? 16 counts of aggravated battery?
What is that? There is no aggravated battery after he is dead. Which shot was the second degree murder? Jesus what a fucking mess of judicial incompetence by the judge. He was not impartial! Clearly he was not. He demonstrated that numerous times by treating Van Dyke harshly in front of the jury on numerous occasions. O J got more respect and he was clearly guilty. Van Dyke was found guilty under the threat of rioting. There was no justice for Van Dyke. Justice was not done. Weak leadership in Chicago. The threat of another Chicago fire is no excuse for lack of a fair trial.

Today, if you have a functioning brain cell and you are a Caucasian police officer in the cesspool of the Cook County System - you need to change your thinking. You are out of your mind if you put yourself in a position where force may need to be used to protect these hypocritical scumbags that want protection for themselves but ruination for you. Answering calls and protecting each other puts us in entirely too much jeopardy already, that's unfortunately what we must do to keep our livelihood and survive, but anything - ANYTHING beyond that is absolutely asking to ruin your life, your families life, the life of anyone that has to respond to help. You can't be more selfish. Look at the trial, look at what happened, look at the years of nitpicking and dissecting a split second decision. They convicted a police officer of MURDER. Of a count of agg batt for every shot he fired. They ruined his life, his family, the lives of those also on the scene. They want to hurt you, they want to punish you for the actions of every scumbag that has gotten himself locked up, shot or had force used for the last 30 years. These people - not just the street people but all of the leftist cabal - the State's Attorney's office, the politicians, the guilty white, wealthy leftists that have never had to face off with Joe in their life - this is their wet dream, this is what they salivate over, is your abject destruction. You better start to think about this, you better slow your roll, because this is the new reality. I have tears in my eyes typing as I think of the next JVD, of his wife and kids, the cops on the scene whose lives are ruined, and mostly of the next bright eyed young cop that thinks I'm an old dog and I don't know anything and who is going to suffer this fate. I've been a cop over 20 years, I'm an upper level supervisor and I beg you to use your fucking heads. Stay safe, don't sacrifice yourself for people that despise you. The only way this will change is for the violence to touch the scumbags that have promoted this and for them to see how it feels for no one to be there for them.

“This is a day I never thought I’d see in America, where 12 ordinary citizens were duped into saving the asses of self-serving politicians at the expense of a dedicated public servant. This sham trial and shameful verdict is a message to every law enforcement officer in America that it’s not the perpetrator in front of you that you need to worry about, it’s the political operatives stabbing you in the back. What cop would still want to be proactive fighting crime after this disgusting charade, and are law abiding citizens ready to pay the price?”

Judge Gaughan was bad news all around. Fix was in. He's a violent drunk. there's plenty of stories in his background growing up back in the day around DePaul shooting up an apartment, getting in bar fights all the time -- a two-fisted drinker & black out drunk. all the stories are true. and when he was in traffic court he used to take care of all his buddies from the old neighborhood. yeah I know he's a combat purple heart Vietnam vet, blah blah blah... He's still dirty like everything else around here...Gaughan should have been recused because of his domestic partnership & the fact he worked in the public defender's office and there should have been a change of venue cuz of all the pretrial publicity & there's no way that this cook county jury was going to vote impartially because they were scared to death. And most of the jury should have been struck for cause. Gaughan let them sit. and the bosses who approve the shooting should have been called to testify and All the Rules of Evidence stunk. fix was in from day one. this was all pre-determined by the hierarchy of the Cook County political corruption system. Rules of Evidence decisions were bad and not allowing for the bosses to be called after they signed off on the shooting was a sham. I think Herbert and the defense team overall were terrible they should have never called JVD to the stand to testify: that was a big big big mistake.

Not Guilty??

GUESS AGAIN, Guys! - Guilty. GUILTY across the board!!

I guess my only question is - Was Van Dyke the sacrificial lamb to be offered up to the crowds?? Who else should be responsible for the ill-equipped and evidently ill-trained officer? No one?

Good luck with the protests. They are already clogging up downtown streets and cars are stuck. Funny how both state and city government employees were let go early - so they would not get caught up in the traffic jams. What about the poor souls who just work downtown at regular companies??

Well, in listening to the protesters - they won and now they can do anything. In listening to the Prosecutor, sounds like he looks at this as a solid win for the community.

Well, you won't see me coming down to "the community" to spend any money. Chicago has just signed its own death sentence. Death by no commerce. Death by no money spent at any of the venues. Death by stagnation from people avoiding the downtown area - or any other area.

Looks like the cops are not going to be pro-active. Too afraid of a lawsuit - and/or jail time.

No one won today -but a LOT of people lost.

I feel very bad for rank-and-file cops who are right at the front of everything and who are not backed up by their superiors or by the politicians.

On ANY threat of violence, everyone is going to be second-guessing each other or just looking the other way until it is over because no one is going want to take a chance and jeopardize themselves and their families with an action that is later deemed as wrong or excessive force.

I'm not a cop. Never really intrested in being one. In fact I'm an engineer that owns my own business. Let me be clear- the legal precedent set by JVD's conviction makes defending your self with lethal force 2nd degree murder at a minimum! The line has been drawn. What's worse is that cops will eventually get the blue flu (and should)!when this happens the free society will burn to the ground. Until then all non cops who are freedom loving Americans should get & carry a firearm. You're going to need it because cops are not going to help you as they are nothing more than revenue collection agents at this point.

JVD found guilty of Murder and 16 counts of Agg Batt. He was thrown under the bus without doubt. Any PO that does any aggressive work is plan nuts. Answer your calls and write paper.

Mistrial should be declared. Jurors couldn’t wait to get on tv and state that acquittal was never on the table? He was never, at any point in the process, presumed innocent by the jury. Jurors also stated how proud they were to serve on the jury, in other words proud to convict a police officer while they believed all along was guilty. They lied on their questionnaires when asked if they could be impartial in order to convict a cop. Also, seems incongruent to be not guilty of official misconduct but guilty of 16 counts of Agg batt. Change of venue and new trial is in order.

Every law abiding citizen's life became less important today. Congrats, regressives. You better hope you're not the next one to be mugged or attacked by a thug, because I promise you the police will not be there to save you.

Not a cop, but a cousin of one, and a friend to dozens more.

The judge should have absolutely granted Van Dyke's motion for a change of venue. With the nonstop media bombardment of negative publicity, there was no way JVD could get an impartial jury in Cook County..

Today is the day that policing died in Chicago RIP! Any copper and I repeat ANY copper that ANY type of proactive policing, the absolute beat thing you can do for your family and yourself is to RESIGN immediately, as quickly as possible, unless you want to be the next head on a mantle in the most corrupt city-state- county in the entire country. For the life of myself and many that have debated this jury trial nonsense when we all know that juries try emotion and there was plenty of emotional components in this shitshow! The judge tries law,why didn't Herbert advise JVD about this? Is Herbert nuts or just unskilled? The experts he put on for JVD cost well over a hundred thousand, we paid yes FOP (You and I) for this, why though could someone say why did he choose jury?

Young officers listening to zone 6 now wtf are you still in a hurry for? How is that commander who retired from 007 the thief who stole mom's social security payments since she died doing? Any feds asking questions? Of course not your connected and you can do anything you want!!

Illinois Fraternal Order of Police State Lodge President Chris Southwood ripped the jury’s verdict.

“This is a day I never thought I’d see in America, where 12 ordinary citizens were duped into saving the asses of self-serving politicians at the expense of a dedicated public servant,” Southwood said in a statement. “This sham trial and shameful verdict is a message to every law enforcement officer in America that it’s not the perpetrator in front of you that you need to worry about, it’s the political operatives stabbing you in the back.”

To all the black people celebrating this, what it will mean in the long run is more dead black people. As the police stop policing, the black on black crime will rise exponentially. The murder rate will eclipse 1000 each year. And to be honest if a criminal kills another criminal, it's really of very little concern. It's all the innocent people who also fall victim to the criminal class. That is the true tragedy. So enjoy your victory, you will be making the funeral homes very rich, very shortly. The rest of Chicago, get a gun, get training get ammo. You are going to need it.

Did you see the news of the jurors being interviewed? They said the reason they did not convict him of 1st deg murder is because they believed he was was in immediate danger and he was in fear of his life. Yet they convicted him anyway. Anyone see a problem with that??? They also said that the didn't convict for official misconduct be he was allowed to carry a gun and had the authority to use it in a situation like this. If that is what the jury believes then his conviction should be overturned by the Judge Immediately.
WTF?

The defense are all ready to appeal the decision. The fact that JVD was convicted of the lesser offenses is only going to make an appeal harder. I don't think there will be too many problems. Although the Michigan Ave protest is starting to grow in size.

Now that the verdict is done I think we can speak our mind. If our mayor would have kept his nose out of this and let it play out as normal Mr. VanDyke would not be going thru this. It took Detectives three days to find some one to claim his ass. There was no justice done today. Its like the old song. The Night Chicago Died. My wife and I are putting the house up tomorrow

I work in the burbs and have worked in a few different towns on different sides of the city and bordering the city. I know guys empathize for JVD and feel like it could be them too. I don't understand how many of you think that was a good shoot. I'm 2nd generation police with childhood friends on the job as well as colleagues of course. These are good, family men and fair and honest people. None of them are shady or screwing around on their wives etc. Not one, in the city or burbs, has expressed to me they thought this was a good shoot. I really don't see accuracy in what most of you are articulating. I work somewhere where we are not afraid to get left out in the cold on a shooting etc. Just like Cicero defended their officer, many of the burbs are still like that. But if you did this..what JVD did, the bosses in any of the half decent places would never sign off on it. The way the state's attorney does her own thing and doesn't follow ILCS is also the way you guys think about a lot of stuff, in a way only respective to Chicago that would not hold up in any other dept or county. I prayed for JVDs safety in IDOC today. The look on his face made me feel horrible but he was guilty that day. I told my wife Laquan was most likely headed to IDOC or being a shooting vic eventually but that had nothing to do with that moment he was shot. I call the community out when they're wrong. I call cops out when they're wrong. He was wrong, like it or not.

Retired and obviously aggravated is anybody setting up a way to get donations to van Dykes family. Please advise you guys can speak your mind but we could show support through donations.

10/05/2018 03:47:00 PM
================================================

My thoughts exactly. If the Blow-z broad trying to derail the Supreme Court nominee can have 300+K raised for her through that money donation site, Van Dykes family deserves the same. Don't say, "well, why don't you do it?" Why? Because I am computer illiterate and can't even come up with the name of the place. Don't even know how to cut and paste but if the donation site was set up for his family, I would sure as hell contribute.

Points to ponder:

1. Those of evil intentions now are induced to actions so intended.

2. Those of good nature are the targets of those of evil intent.

3. Whatcha gonna do, when they come for you?


Ponder, good citizens, ponder or perish.

with a lawyer named Vince Gaughan.

Yeah Northside, we all have our crosses to bear
regarding such things.

Just chalk it up to true colors being shown
and keep it movin' my man...

The old man once said, "Be content in having
given a good accounting of yourself."

The overwhelming majority of us have, are and will
continue to do just that but it's lost in all the
triumphant shouting of today by the usuals.

Besides, you got much better company
out here and over by there to bend
an elbow with and share a laugh or three.
