The image of Nelson Mandela as a selfless, humble, freedom fighter turned cheerful, kindly old man, is well established in the West. If there is any international leader on whom we can universally heap praise it is surely he. But get past the halo we’ve placed on him without his permission, and Nelson Mandela had more than a few flaws which deserve attention.
He signed off on the deaths of innocent people, lots of them
Nelson Mandela was the head of UmKhonto we Sizwe, (MK), the terrorist wing of the ANC and South African Communist Party. At his trial, he had pleaded guilty to 156 acts of public violence including mobilising terrorist bombing campaigns, which planted bombs in public places, including the Johannesburg railway station. Many innocent people, including women and children, were killed by Nelson Mandela’s MK terrorists. Here are some highlights

The City of Chicago has been court ordered to pay $600 Million Dollars to the Police & Fire Pension Funds in 2014 - Rahm Emanuel claims that will bankrupt Chicago BUT today Rahm Emanuel announces a 1/2 Billion Dollar upgrade of the CTA Blue Line (O'Hare) to cut a big 10 minutes off the travel time
Blacks are mad that this give them 10 less minutes to rape, rob and kill the white CTA passengers
You see.... Giving $600 Million Dollars to the Chicago Police and Fire Pension Funds doesn't generate the kickbacks, bribes and cash envelopes the over priced CTA improvement contract will bring to the Chicago elected officials...
4-year, $492M Blue Line project to be announced today by Rahm Emanuel - and then refused to take any questions by reporters.
The CTA is promising faster trips between downtown and O'Hare International Airport on the Blue Line after a four-year modernization project that will be announced Thursday.
The $492 million project will include improvements to the tracks, station houses, signals and power supply.
By eliminating slow zones and allowing trains to operate at top speeds of 55 mph during longer segments, CTA officials predict that travel times between downtown and O'Hare, which now take about 50 minutes, will be cut by up to 10 minutes.
Currently, Blue Line trains operating to and from O’Hare and the Loop incur speed restrictions ranging from 35 mph to 15 mph as a precautionary measure following track inspections that found that the wooden rail ties were in poor condition and in need of replacement, the CTA said this summer.
Officials said the work will be the largest investment in the Blue Line since it was extended from Jefferson Park to O’Hare 30 years ago.The Blue Line's O'Hare branch provided more than 25 million rides last year.

John Khosho, 23, dies after wrapping his flying & speeding car around a tree... Early reports are that the tree will survive
A Chicago man was killed this morning after his car left the road in Skokie and struck a tree, authorities said.
Skokie police responded shortly after 11 a.m. to the single-vehicle crash in the 3800 block of Dempster Street in the north suburb, according to officials.
Police later identified the man as John Khosho, 23, of Chicago.
The vehicle, a black 1996 Ford Mustang coupe, was traveling west on Dempster when it left the roadway and struck a tree on the parkway in front of 3850 Dempster Street, police said. Authorities said the driver was wearing a seatbelt and the vehicle’s airbag was deployed. The car was almost split in half, according to police.
Police only identified the deceased driver as a 23-year-old man who lives in Chicago. They said further driver information is pending notification of next of kin.
Authorities said it was as-yet unknown whether drugs or alcohol contributed to the crash.
The incident currently is being investigated by the North Regional Major Crime Task Force Major Crash Assistance Team. A section of Dempster Street near the accident is expected to be closed until mid-afternoon today, police said.
Authorities said that anyone who saw accident should contact the Skokie police investigations unit at (847) 982-5900.
“Any information that would help police determine the reason for the accident is helpful,” said Officer Tammy Jacobsen. “Did he swerve? Why did he go off the road?”
UPDATE: NOT GUILTY ON ALL COUNTS - Lake County Deputy Sheriff Eric Francke on trial for solicitation of a sex act and obstruction - trial halted today due to the whore not showing up for trial and currently "missing"
UPDATE: A Lake County sheriff’s deputy accused of soliciting a woman for sex, and then covering up the evidence was found not guilty in a directed verdict today.
A Lake County sheriff’s deputy accused of soliciting a woman for sex, and then covering up the evidence, exchanged 51 text messages with the woman prior to his arrest, prosecutors said at the opening of Deputy Eric Francke’s trial this morning.
The trial was halted briefly, though, when prosecutors said the woman had failed to show for the trial and could not be located.
Prosecutors said the texts in question included Francke’s home address and mentioned a price of $300 an hour. They said the texts had been deleted from Francke’s phone – though he had 21,000 other texts on his phone that had not been deleted. He is charged with obstruction of justice and soliciting a sex act.
Former Mayor Daley gave this man millions of our tax dollars in TIF grants and overpriced window contracts for the Chicago Public Schools - Republic Window and Doors CEO Richard Gillman gets 4 years in prison for looting politically connected window business - He keeps his mouth shut and won't squeal on others, as usual
Five years to the day after a sit-in by workers at an abruptly shuttered Chicago factory drew national attention, its former CEO pleaded guilty today to one count of theft for looting Republic Windows & Doors and was promptly sentenced to 4 years in prison.
The guilty plea by Richard Gillman, 60, came a month after he turned down a similar deal from Cook County prosecutors. He was also fined $100,000 by Judge Domenica Stephenson at the Leighton Criminal Court Building.
Republic Windows became a national symbol in late 2008 after some of the more than 200 union workers staged a six-day sit-in over vacation and severance pay owed to them after the sudden closing of the Goose Island factory.
Gillman admitted stealing more than $500,000 from the business and was immediately taken into custody after the sentence was imposed. He could end up serving about 2 years in prison with good behavior.
Two men are expected in court later today, accused of stealing bundles of mail from a mail carrier in the Humboldt Park neighborhood, police said.
John Merritt, 29, of the 1500 block of Clarence Avenue in west suburban Berwyn, and Kevin Jones, 34, of the 3800 block of West Ohio Street on the city’s West Side, were both charged with felony theft. Jones was also wanted on a traffic warrant.
Tuesday about 3 p.m. in the 2900 block of West Division Street, a witness told police he saw Merritt standing near a mail carrier while Jones was looking around “as if to see who was watching,’’ according to a police report.
A few minutes later, the witness saw the two -- including Merritt holding packages of mail -- running westbound on Division Street before jumping in a green Chevrolet Cavalier in the 1100 block of North Richmond Street, police said.

Rahm Emanuel lags on determining which police jobs could be filled by civilians, Inspector General says
Mayor Rahm Emanuel has not yet conducted a sweeping review of Chicago Police Department positions that could be civilianized, even as he uses $93 million in police overtime this year — and $75 million more next year — to mask a manpower shortage, the inspector general has concluded.
Inspector General Joe Ferguson said civilianization of police jobs “remains a work in progress” nearly one year after Emanuel vowed to follow the IG’s recipe to save up to $16.6 million-a-year and put another 292 police officers on the street.
A Chicago Police officer was injured and taken to a hospital after a motorist he’d pulled over began fighting with him
A Chicago Police officer was injured and taken to a hospital after a motorist he’d pulled over began fighting with him early this morning in the West Town community.
The incident happened about 3 a.m. as the officer was conducting a traffic stop in the 900 block of North Willard Court, police said.
“The driver got combative,’’ said one police officer on the scene, who added the two pushed and shoved and the officer appeared to have been punched.
The fight escalated when the motorist wrestled the officer, who was working alone, to the ground and began smashing his head on the pavement, police on the scene said.
The officer had to call a 10-1, an emergency call for help and when responding offices got there, they were able to subdue the man, who lives on that block, and take him into custody, police said.
"According to the FBI, between 1976 and 2005, blacks, who are about 12 percent of the population, committed 53 percent of all felony murders and 56 percent of non-felony murders. The Centers for Disease Control recently reported that young black men are 14 times more likely to commit murder than young white men."
Unlike Chicago Police & Supt. Garry McCarthy, Milwaukee Police Warn Their Citizens Of The "Knockout Game" - A Crime where Blacks usually attack Whites - MILWAUKEE POLICE: Pedestrians warned after random, possible 'knockout game' attack
Pedestrians in Milwaukee are being warned to stay alert after a 53-year-old man was seriously injured in a random attack possibly linked to the so-called "knockout game."
The man was walking in the 4000 block of W. Burleigh St. shortly after 7:30 p.m. Monday when he was approached from behind, struck and knocked to the sidewalk by one of four assailants, Milwaukee police said Wednesday.
The other three attackers then joined in the assault, and the man was punched several more times, police said.
The victim, Tim Bessette, told WTMJ-TV (Channel 4) that his attackers, a group of teens, began harassing him before one of them punched him, breaking his nose and fracturing bones in his face.
The knockout game involves groups of youth who randomly target unsuspecting pedestrians with the intention of knocking them out cold with one punch.
The assaults have gained national media attention after high-profile attacks in several cities, including one in Jersey City, N.J., that left a 46-year-old man dead.
"The so-called 'point-'em-out-knock-'em-out game' incidents are not a game, but are in fact crimes that can be categorized as battery and/or robbery," said Milwaukee Police Department spokesman Lt. Mark Stanmeyer.
"Virtually all robberies and assaults are unprovoked, and the very fact that these events appear random makes them hard to prevent and hard to prepare for," Stanmeyer said.
Bessette, who is still hospitalized, told Channel 4 he has no doubt this was a case of the knockout game.
"I watched these clips of this knockout game and I sit there in total amazement," Bessette said.
"How can somebody be so ruthless and disrespectful?"
Inattentive, lone pedestrians are the preferred targets for street crimes, said Stanmeyer, urging people to remain alert and aware of their surroundings at all times.
