Too Crooked?

  • Former Chicago Police Supt. Terry Hillard announced Monday that he stepped down from a company vying for five cannabis dispensary licenses.

    Hillard was listed as a registered manager of EHR Holdings, one of the 21 groups that earned perfect scores on its applications for the next 75 pot shop licenses. Hillard’s departure comes less than a month after his partner, Hamd Kamal, was identified by the Sun-Times as an employee of KPMG, the global accounting firm given a $4.2 million no-bid contract to grade the applications.

    “After careful consideration, I have withdrawn association with EHR Holdings LLC,” Hillard said in a statement. “From the beginning, I have supported the importance of bringing social equity to communities deserving of a chance for economic growth and expansion and continue to hold the process in high regard.”

    While Hillard’s abrupt and unexplained exit follows the revelation about Kamal’s work as a risk consultant for KPMG, a spokesman for the former top cop wouldn’t say whether that affected his decision to step aside.

    On Monday, KPMG spokesman Russ Grote insisted the blind scoring of applications was objective and noted that Kamal wasn’t involved in the process. However, Grote wouldn’t comment when asked whether Kamal was still employed by the firm.

Someone had an attack of conscience? After who knows how much from Taser and something to do with background investigations, legal weed was one pile of money too far?

Not so much as "too crooked" SCC,
more like "too old to be put in the
jackpot when this crooked shit is
laid out in the daylight and dries up."


"Uncle Terry" is worried his old ass will
get fitted for the corruption jacket and
end up facing a wall in a prison cell and
spending the remainder of his life self-

The real talk was Hillard rather famously
pulled the ladder up behind him as he was
making his ascent and he bricked a lot of
sharp Sgts and Lts, especially black ones
and got a bunch of dunces, reprobates,
incompetents, thieves and degenerates
promoted to Gold Stars.

People talk Terry...

You never know WHO is friends
with whom on this job.

You've hit enough licks.
Go home, sit down and genuflect
on how fortunate you are.

“What’s The Story Here?”

The story is everybody who has had or has political power is corrupt in this city, county, and state. Shame on these people. The next progression with be involvement in the prostitution industry when the Democrats legalize it. And don’t think they aren't looking at it. I remember reading an article about Soviet Russia when the Communist ideology said all jobs were equal so everyone would be paid the same regardless of your education or training. So physicians were paid the same as a bus driver or office worker. Then prostitution was starting to flourish and the hoes were being paid more because of supply & demand (an old capitalist idea!). So the article was pointing out that female physicians were turning to prostitution because it paid more and why should they put up with the pay of a bus driver and starve after putting in all those years of schooling.

Hilliard wants to be a drug dealer now? Legalizing weed is only pushing blacks further behind. C’mon Terry I thought you actually cared about people.

After all these restaurants and business close, who do you think is going to buy them.
Hedge funds, nameless faceless entities. But after you look closer, names associated with Madigan, Pritzker, Groot, will come up down the line but it won't matter. People are getting paid and since Illinois is go corrupt everyone just shrugs their shoulders and says "That's Illinois for you, what can you do." Sad.

Gotta ask yourself..... why do they have to pay someone to grade the applications to the tune of 4.2 Million dollars. Not to be too cynical but Chicago has a history of pay to play. So the question might seem to a jaded person.... hypothetically do you have to pay off the grader.... a crooked politician... or both to hedge the bet..... Not suggesting doing that just curious exactly how this opaque process works....

Maybe alderman burke could shed some light on the matter.... he seems to know how to get stuff done in chicago.

Then in order to have equity for the communities ravaged by drugs (i.e. those where the criminals got caught and punished) .... they are going to open up the legal joints in neighborhoods hurt by drugs.... genius I say .....

Perhaps some of you are old enough to remember when the heroin dealers killed the crack dealers cuz it cut into their profits.... but hey it all worked out.

Asking for a friend should you put a few token people of color on your company letterhead or make them a small shareholder member of the company so that you can have preference in the process..... kinda like the minority owned business set asides and/or preferences....

It's awesome prohibition is over... but it is still controlled by folks that are not about to tell you the story about how it really works....

I talked to a dispensary owner for a few hours, he has a very successful operation in Colorado. He told me that he had been growing illegally since the 1960s and he had a great life. Distribution through the black market was simple and straight forward. He could easily sell double the amount that he was growing. Once he legalized, his life changed. He told me that he now deals with government personnel that are bigger crooks than the people he dealt with in the black market. He told me that legalizing was the biggest mistake of his life, the money he has made was not worth dealing with the government folk that never stop messing with him.

I always chuckled when I hear Hillard’s name brought up about consultant work or being involved in any business. The man was completely incompetent. Don’t believe me or disagree. Go read his deposition from the Ryan Harris murder case. Bumbling idiot. I wouldn’t let him manage a lemonade stand.

It was a good idea until it became a bad idea.
Probably tipped off to leave...for social equity’s sake.
Didn’t realize the extent of the ATF, IRS and DOJ involvement?
Lots of room for some funny stuff 4 years ago, not so much today and after Nov 3rd.
Certainly the underworld isn’t making much noise, sharing that equity stuff for economic redevelopments.
Show me the money.
What happened to all that weed tax revenue we never had, and since IL gets a large chunk but it’s not mentioned or enough for JB to squander? Wasn’t this legalization deal suppose to be an end all godsend?

Hillard is quietly extremely dialed in very heavy. He's a black guy who keeps his mouth shut and has made millions. He has enough juice to put his boy Thompson on Rahm detail chief of police at the ICC and now head of AG security. Lord knows that idiot isn't smart enough to get anything on his own.the only equity Hillard is worried about is his own. Daley taught him well

If this is the SAME Hillard who is part of Hillard Heintze LLC they were listed as the "preferred" security consultant to review "pot store security procedures"(consultant because it does not show the company carrying ANY license through the Il. DPR.) So when you fill out the pot store application you are told to use this company to have your pot license security packet reviewed by Hillard Heintze. Of course they are getting a huge fee for the review. According to the Il. DPR there are no Illinois P.I. or Security individual or Agency Licenses in Illinois for a company headquartered in Illinois. Now I am NOT saying there is no license I just couldn't find it. So even though the Pot stores are a license to print cash maybe the no license found security consulting firm makes MORE MONEY???????

I know he is a USMC hero and a CPD hero, but Hillard absolutely loves money, legit money. There has to be something else going on here. He must have another, more lucrative deal soon to be moved to the front burner, otherwise, he would not release his firm grasp on the "new green deal" drying pan. Sump'n up, foshure.

But what if it needed to be a black "owned" lemonade stand? You would need someone to front, which is not beneath Hillard, and who is also not too bright. Hillard would be perfect. I can hear that Adele song about making lots of money, "Rolling in the Heap". /s

It's twue, it's twue, it's twue, but Hillard pales (pun intended) in comparison to phat phil. Old Cline can simultaneously slick you out of your money and have you nominating him for sainthood. Wait a minute! That's the very thing he is doing now with the CPMF.

You were not alone. I really liked Superintendent Rodriguez because he was one of us. But, when he was pushed out the door, I was thrilled to again have one of us be chosen. Hillard being known as a USMC hero and a CPD hero had me respecting him, however, he wasted no time in diminishing my respect to near zero. Then Cline came along and made things even worse with his nonsense. In order, the downward spiral continued with J-FLED, GMAC, specialEd and now continues with Brownie Fife. Demoralizing only begins to describe it.
