Tom Dart Pushes for Teamsters 700 to win over FOP - Dart is afraid if the FOP wins they will go public highlighting his corrupt budget

Dart takes odd vested interest in ugly union fight.

The Teamster Local 700 are in a tough battle against the FOP to retain the greatly declining Court Services Deputy Division. Inner Source says Dart is panic-stricken if the FOP wins they will go public highlighting his corrupt budget. Source says Dart even contacted 

Preckwinkle office to ask them to stall private pension reform negotiations. Sheriff Dart has allowed the number of Court Services Deputies to shrink 515 officers since 2010. There is approximately 1,000 deputies left. Some are working 2-3 courtrooms by themselves which violates all staffing guidelines.  

Water Tower park to be renamed for former Chicago Mayor Jane Byrne - "Jane Bryne Martini Tower"

The park surrounding Chicago’s historic Water Tower would be renamed “Jane M. Byrne Plaza” in honor of the former mayor under a proposal endorsed today by the City Council Finance Committee.

Aldermen set aside other proposed ways to honor Byrne after the former mayor’s daughter, Kathy Byrne, said the park idea was endorsed by her mother and family. The full council will vote Wednesday to honor a mayor who served from 1979 to 1983.

“It goes back many, many generations that my family was in that area,” Byrne told aldermen. “My great, great grandfather, who was the first of my forbears to come to Chicago, lived in that area during the time of the Chicago Fire. And the Water Tower is a survivor, and my mother is a survivor, and Chicago is a survivor. And I think that would be a tremendous way to honor her, by dedicating that park to my mom.”

Ald. Ed Burke, 14th, chairman of the committee and the one who proposed finding a way to honor Byrne after a Sun-Times gossip columnist who worked for Byrne decades ago promoted the idea, immediately agreed with Kathy Byrne, who awaited the hearing in his office.

Family of Drowned Christopher Bowen, 14, sues the Chicago Park District claiming Christopher was TOO FAT to swim in the McKinley Park pool! And now he will never become a legal U.S. Citizen!

The father of a teen who died at a public pool last year is suing the Chicago Park District, saying officials there failed to properly monitor the swimming pool and render aid to the boy.
Christopher Bowen, 14, died Aug. 9, 2013, after he was pulled out of the McKinley Park pool at 2210 W. Pershing Road.

The wrongful-death lawsuit filed Monday in Cook County Court by John Wilson claims, among other charges, that the Chicago Park District failed, through its lifeguards, to monitor and control the premises and help the boy. The suit claims Wilson and the teen’s brother, Joe John Hedge, have suffered as a result of Bowen’s death.

The suit asks for more than $50,000 in compensation.

A jury has awarded former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura $1.8 million in his lawsuit against the estate of U.S. Navy Seals "American Sniper" author Chris Kyle

A jury has awarded former Minnesota Gov. Jesse Ventura $1.8 million in his lawsuit against the estate of "American Sniper" author Chris Kyle.

The federal jury in St. Paul found Tuesday that the 2012 best-selling book libeled Ventura in describing a bar fight in California in 2006. Kyle wrote that he decked a man later identified as Ventura after the man allegedly said the Navy SEALs "deserve to lose a few."

Ventura, a former governor and professional wrestler, testified the incident never happened. Kyle insisted in testimony videotaped before he was slain last year that it did.

Both sides put witnesses on the stand during the two-week trial that backed their version of events.

Legal experts said before the trial Ventura had to clear a high legal bar to win.

Support Needed For the Family of Murdered Chicago Police Officer John Mathews'

Fraternal Order of Police Chicago Lodge #7
Support Needed For the Family of
Murdered Officer John Mathews' 
The following information was an email to the Chicago Police Memorial from the son of Murdered Police Officer John Mathews (E.O.W. 21 MAY 88).  Please make every effort to attend and support the Mathews Family.

Hey guys, I'm looking for a quick favor. I'm a Cicero Firefighter and the son of Chicago Police Officer John Mathews who was killed on May 21, 1988. He was killed down the street from the house we lived in Hegewisch. All of his killers have since been released; the last two paroled in 1999. One of those men, [name removed for respect to the Officer's Memory] was also convicted of battery against a minor in 2005, for which he served another year in prison.

The more brutal of the five has since come back to the same neighborhood and was coaching in the Hegewisch Babe Ruth [youth baseball] League. We were able to have him removed in June of this year by the President of National Babe Ruth League (the local charter is run by his friends). He has claimed that we are violating his civil rights and gone to the media (nothing has been printed or aired yet...).

On July 30 at 7pm the League is having an open meeting at Steve's Lounge in Hegewisch. 13200 S Baltimore Ave., Chicago, IL 60633. He is bringing family, friends, players and parents (the few that support him) to show support and why he continues to deserve to be a role model to young kids.

My family is hoping to reach as many police and firefighters who are able to attend the meeting to show the League that we will not stand for murderers mentoring young minds.

I would also like the entire Babe Ruth Board to step down due to their gross negligence by keeping him as a coach, having full knowledge of his history, especially in the neighborhood he caused so much harm to.

If anyone can help and attend the meeting on 30 July at 7:00 PM it would be much appreciated. Thank you!

11-year-old Shamiya Adams - Colored Funeral or Circus? You got to be kidding and bet your dollar Rahm Emanuel picked up the tab for this ridiculous asinine funeral! Alderman knocks Rahm Emanuel for not attending Shamiya’s funeral

A west Side alderman criticized Mayor Rahm Emanuel Monday for failing to attend Saturday’s funeral for 11-year-old Shamiya Adams, the latest innocent victim of Chicago’s never-ending gang violence.

“He should have been there. The message needs to be sent that this is one city. There are no unimportant parts of Chicago,” said Ald. Jason Ervin (28th), whose West Side ward includes the West Garfield Park neighborhood where Shamiya was gunned down when a bullet fired by an alleged gang member entered the open window of a home where the girl was having a sleepover with friends.

“You couldn’t find a better child. She was doing well in school. She was helping to raise money for library books. If we don’t support children doing the right things in life, what hope do we show them?”

Ervin said Emanuel’s absence was particularly disappointing, considering the fact that the mayor joined first lady Michelle Obama in attending last year’s funeral for 15-year-old Hadiya Pendleton.

A promising sophomore at King College Prep, Hadiya Pendleton was shot in the back on Jan. 29, 2013, while hanging out with friends at a park a few blocks from the high school and less than a mile from President Barack Obama’s Kenwood mansion.

Hadiya’s murder shined another unflattering international spotlight on Chicago because she was an honor student and a majorette who had just performed with her high school band at festivities tied to Obama’s second inauguration.

Now, Shamiya is the new poster child for the innocent victims of the gang war being waged on the streets of Chicago.

Chicago Police Officer Detlef Sommerfield wins over a half million dollar verdict against his supervisor, Sgt. Lawrence C. Knasiak - Over Jewish Taunts

Chicago Police Sgt. Lawrence C. Knasiak was twice commended by the city council for his “dedication, professionalism and personal sacrifice” during a nearly 30-year career with the department.

Apparently that sense of civic duty didn’t extend to cops he supervised, including a Jewish officer Knasiak allegedly called a “bloodsucking parasite.”

On Monday, a federal jury awarded $540,000 to that officer, who was supervised by Knasiak in a Southwest Side police district from 2000 to 2007.

The officer, Detlef Sommerfield, sued the city and his former boss in 2008, accusing Knasiak of taunting him for years with anti-Semitic and racist remarks, according to a federal court complaint.

Sommerfield was called “F - - - - - - Jew boy” by Knasiak, who also would greet him with a Nazi salute, according to the complaint. On several occasions, Knasiak showed a swastika logo to Sommerfield, a German Jew who lost relatives in the Holocaust.

17-year-old Corey Harris' Family wins the Chicago Police Negro Ghetto Lottery - The Gang Banging Shooter & father of a welfare baby fatally shot by police

Chicago taxpayers will spend $1.2 million to compensate the family of a high school sports star with good grades who was shot in the back by an off-duty police officer.

The settlement, expected to be approved by the City Council’s Finance Committee on Tuesday and by the full Council on Wednesday, stems from the Sept. 11, 2009 shooting death of 17-year-old Corey Harris.

Harris was the father of an infant daughter and the captain of the baseball and basketball teams at Dyett High School when he was gunned down after a late-afternoon chase.

At the time, Harris’ mother, Natasha Williams, told the Chicago Sun-Times that her son had no police record and was not involved in gangs.

“You can go to the school — the principal, the teachers, the security — nobody could give you a bad report about my kid,” Williams said then.

The lone occupant of the car, a woman, suffered minor injuries and she was taken to St. Alexius Medical Center in Hoffman Estates, Nebl said.

Nebl had no details yet on why the crash happened.

Gary Indiana picks new police chief after 'heinous' murders by their city's Negroes

Gary, Indiana, has picked a new police chief and is stepping up crime prevention efforts after the slaying of a police officer and other "heinous" killings, the city's mayor said on Monday.

Gary native Larry McKinley, a 15-year veteran of the city's police force and most recently deputy chief, was chosen to lead the 213-member department. McKinley selected Gary Police Captain Tom Papadakis to come out of retirement to serve as deputy chief.


McKinley will succeed Wade Ingram, who resigned as chief last week.

Mayor Karen Freeman-Wilson said the troubled steel town about 30 miles south of Chicago was taking a new, comprehensive approach to crime, which will include allowing residents to anonymously report suspicious activity. The city is also hiring 14 additional police officers.

"Over the past 60 days, the city of Gary has been forced to reckon with some of the most heinous murders seen in decades," Freeman-Wilson said in a statement.

She said such behavior could not be considered "normal, acceptable or usual," and she wanted improved coordination between government and non-governmental entities to enforce the law and prevent crime.

Chicago's FOP 7 seeks to halt release of internal police misconduct files

The union that represents Chicago police wants to halt the release of internal investigation files for alleged police misconduct.

In an injunction filed Monday in Cook County circuit court, the Fraternal Order of Police claims the release of the information would “unfairly and vexatiously harm the individual officers named therein.” The FOP wants to keep the city from releasing the lists until it has reviewed them for accuracy, according to the injunction. The union claims in the injunction that it’s aware of at least 12 officers whose names are improperly included in some of the files.

A three-judge panel of the Illinois Appeals Court ruled in March that such files would not be exempt from the Illinois Freedom of Information Act. The appellate court’s ruling found that records related to citizen complaints of police misconduct are a matter of public record.
