Better than a Soap Opera

  • Bail was denied Sunday for a woman who unwittingly hired an undercover Chicago cop to execute another woman she thought was romantically involved with her ex-girlfriend — another officer who was assigned to Mayor Lori Lightfoot’s security detail.

    Lissette Ortiz, 54, of Jefferson Park, was arrested Friday evening in the 4700 block of North Central Avenue and charged with a felony count of solicitation of murder for hire, according to Chicago police.

    The investigation was set off Monday when Ortiz offered to hire a man to kidnap the 62-year-old woman, according to Cook County Assistant State’s Attorney Jack Costello. Ortiz’s public defender Courtney Smallwood later said he was a handyman who worked in her building.

    Ortiz believed the woman she was targeting had started dating her ex-girlfriend, veteran CPD Officer Marni Washington, according to Costello and a police source. Ortiz’s relationship with Washington had fizzled out by this summer, when Washington was acquitted of misdemeanor domestic battery after Ortiz accused her of abuse.
Seems like a lot of unnecessary drama, but then, Groot loves drama.

A soap opera there a soap opera here how about this she’s so entitled;

Chicago Treasurer Melissa Conyears-Ervin hired private security using taxpayer funds after CPD found there was no threat. She disagreed, saying people call her ‘the money lady.’

https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-lightfoot-treasurer-conyears-ervin-security-20191125-agz7cvjnzrhv5g5ygiub3yvlte-story.html

Then we have this guy again turning up former patrolman getting a commanders pension where do we remember him from what comments did he make;
Conyears-Ervin then hired Brian Thompson, who used to lead Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s police detail, as a security specialist but he resigned earlier this month. Records were unavailable to show how much he was paid. Now Conyears-Ervin is working to hire a security specialist at a $60,000 salary, her chief of staff said.

*Saying he was a security specialist know they made him commander and gave him a commander’s pension so he’s getting about $130,000 a year and pension what striking thing that he say let’s look into him kind of racist isn’t it:


Thompson about the selection process, Thompson told him, "John, the color of your skin is your sin."
https://www.chicagotribune.com/politics/ct-rahm-emanuel-security-detail-lawsuit-met-20151001-story.html

The drivers for the city clerk for the city treasurer were nothing more than paid valleys, the elected want the parking privileges the catering to their asses, the free city car which are all fully equipped with the ultimate in policing emergency equipment brand new cars every year free parking downtown everything free free free typical Democrats. The treasurer saying she’s The money lady, people make comments kidding around with her how many times do people ask regular people working people for money she’s just another elected idiot Democrat that wants more and more taxpayers resources. Why can’t she pay this out of her own campaign funds or reduce her bloated salary? The city court right now is using city employees to drive her ass around supposedly not police but who knows we’re not be surprised if they are coppers. Do you look at unit 543 that is where they come out of many of them the mayors detail comes out of unit 542 she has plenty of security drivers also plenty of personal valets for her family and friends maybe the mayor should also get rid of our detail why not show water reform are you are Lori.

If he is cutting Fiscal Fat, ask him how much does the McCormick Place pay CPD to have its own personal Deputy Chief, Sergeant and two patrol officers. They are all worthless, but at least we'd have 4 more worthless bodies.

And does the First Deputy's staff or the Superintendent's staff count in this new seasonal deployment initiative. Why do PO's and Sergeants need to be waved from swiping while you're at it at headquarters?

Does Fat Eddie swipe. When is the last time this moron was at work or does he have a problem keeping sober now that his skeletons are running free. I heard a reporter FOIA'd all of the missing puzzles surrounding his night of drinking sleeping and being let go from a possible DUI. I already grabbed my popcorn for the show. I don't feel sorry for the PO either. She knew he was married.

Speaking of police details, Melissa' twin of her husband' Conyears- Erving is scamming just like her husband. She hates the police but wants protection. She and her husband further enslave people on the west side along with fake pastors, yet she says she afraid of where she lives. She claims to have a few old bullet holes in her front window...I say shame on her for not getting it fixed. She said she was recognized in ohio by an unknown woman and that frightened her...I call b.s. because even people here in the city of chicago doesn't know who she is. She hired her own private security at $35 an hour using taxpayers money. Now she's looking to hire a full time security guard at $60k because someone called her money lady. Or because some young guy on the west side started asking her questions unrelated to her position. Sounds like someone wants protection from the general public. Her position has gone to her head. She believes she more important than she really is. I smell a staged incident coming soon. Ala Jussie Smollet. If afraid to hold public office then step down Melissa'twin of her husband' Conyears-Erving.

...And speaking of
"Better Than A Soap Opera"

There's THIS:

-Chicago Fibune:

"Chicago Treasurer Melissa Conyears-Ervin hired private security
using taxpayer funds after CPD found there was no threat.
She disagreed, saying people call her ‘the money lady.’"

So...

Not only is she salty, she's got a lot of nerve too.

"I'se sombody impo'tant an' I needs
a Poleece guard detail..."

The funny part?

When Groot shaded her ass back with this:

“Of course, if you believe the assessment is incorrect and you
are in need of a security detail, there is nothing to prevent you
from using resources under your control to procure private security resources,” Lightfoot wrote to Conyears-Ervin this summer. “Also, if there is a threat
to you or someone on your staff, please immediately call 911.”

Gregory Pratt of the Fibune hung out some deeply skid-marked
drawers (with a prompt from Groot's peeps/folks) on the clothesline
when he FOI'd the correspondence between Conyers-Ervin, CPD and the
creatures who constitute Groot's City Hall coven.

Fucking Hysterical...

And you just KNOW that Groot was sick of Conyers-Ervin's
crying and had a staffer reach out to Pratt with a "suggestion"
for a timely FOI request.

Funnier still?
A TWO WEEK turn-around?

WHOOOOO!

is definitely a message being sent...

A cop defending himself from a felon hopped up on cocaine and wielding a deadly weapon is now manslaughter. These are sad times.

SCC you must hear this. The lesser of Johnson’s problems is his DUI. Supposedly the real investigation by the IG is on his close relationship with Chicago Uniform Company on Roosevelt and now his 01JAN20 retirement date is in jeopardy. Rumor is the other uniform stores contacted the IG when Johnson received freebies from C.U.C. There concern is Johnson approved uniform items that C.U.C. had pre-made and stockpiled such as pink flag patches and an exempt raincoat and a rainbow hat for the Pride parade. Johnson approved the items without the required pre-notification to the stores which means no other store had time to make them before breast cancer awareness or the pride parade, giving C.U.C. a complete monopoly. If this all started with a free very expensive raincoat which Johnson then required all exempts to purchase this is turning into something way bigger than his drinking problem. Id like to see all the receipts from everything he got from C.U.C. for himself or his relatives. I think the IG does too.

OT: ANother Cook Co. criminal justice system success: Re: the rape and murder of the UIC student.


Today at 4:45 p.m., Donald D. Thurman, 26, was formally charged with first-degree murder and aggravated sexual assault for the killing of UIC student Ruth George. The medical examiner ruled Ms. George’s death a homicide by strangulation.

Thurman will be processed and transported from the UIC Police station, where he has been held since his arrest on Sunday, to the Chicago Police Department lock-up facility.

His most recent address was near the UIC campus. He has no affiliation with the University or the victim.

The offender has a criminal record and was released from prison in December 2018 for armed robbery. He was sentenced to 6 years, but only served two and is currently on parole.

"Just a question here. Why is it in almost all of these murder
for hire stories the person contacted is either an undercover,
off duty cop, or FBI agent? They don't mention "bar" in this
story but the others seem to always have that location listed."

AFAIK in this case at least the suspect didn't directly contact the police, the suspect contacted Joe The Plumber or some shit who worked in her apartment building. Apparently the handymen in Ms. Ortiz's world usually moonlight as elite assassins. Anyway, maintenance guy then contacted the police, they set up the 'I know a guy who can help you' sting, and the game was afoot.

No shame in missing that detail though, because it took me a couple of reads through the story to actually understand what the hell was going on. Total soap opera.

Does a criminal gradually work their way up to murder for hire or just wake up at the age of 50 and decide to be a criminal?

The UIC killer Donald Thurman was released from prison and put on parole in December 2018. He was in prison for an armed robbery conviction. He was sentenced to six years, but only served two. Had he still been in prison, he would not have been prowling the streets looking for a victim. RIP Ruth George.

Conyears-Ervin then hired Brian Thompson, who used to lead Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s police detail, as a security specialist but he resigned earlier this month.

CONyears should have gone with TWO DUDES & A DOG from the get go, she is a straight up fool.

Why does a hard left mayor even need a bodyguard in leftist Chicago. Thought it was liberal and safe? What kind of message does this send to The Community? It is not like movie celebrities are threatening to blow up her place of work, like Madonna threatened to blow up the White House because Trump won.

Not Bodyguards.......Personal Assistants / Servants/ court jesters
