John C. Burke - Missing Headstone Replaced for Chicago Policeman Killed 100 Years Ago - Memorial to be held this Sunday at Mt. Olivet Catholic Cemetery 2755 W. 111th St. in Mount Greenwood at 1:00 pm

MOUNT GREENWOOD — A ceremony will be held at 1 p.m. Sunday to honor Chicago Police officer John C. Burke, who was killed in the line of duty pursuing the "Red Pepper" bandit a century ago.
The ceremony at Mount Olivet Cemetery, 2755 W. 111th St. in Mount Greenwood will re-dedicate Burke's headstone, which went missing in June, according to Martin Gainer, a retired Chicago Police sergeant.
The new headstone was paid for by the Chicago Police Memorial Foundation. The effort to replace the stone was launched by Burke's large, extended family — many of whom have also pursued careers in law enforcement, Gainer said.
"My uncle was killed 100 years ago. And to the Memorial Foundation, it was as though he was killed last week," said Gainer, his voice cracking from emotion.
Burke, 29, married Gainer's grandmother's sister, Rose Flanigan. The pair were wed for just two months when Burke was killed by the delivery truck robber known for throwing red pepper into the eyes of his victims to avoid a pursuit, according to reports published in the Chicago Tribune.
"Don't wait for dinner for me, Rose. I'm going to get that red pepper robber, and I'll be late," the newspaper reported Burke saying the morning of his death on Dec. 16, 1915.

aww sure i was after knowing the Burkes in my place in old Ireland i did,great people they were to if I'm after recalling,,BUT,,,they had this thing for barn yard animals during the fair days down in Mayo if you get my drift and after a few pints and a few shorts of the whisky they would climb into the animal stalls in full view of passerby and have a go with the poor donkeys and goats and sheep and we had to run and get the priest and he would join in to so,,,,,,but the clan came to the American shores where they joined the coppers they did so they could screw every body,

That's how motherfuckers talked back then. He most likely was planning on being late because of some pussy. Kind of like when you tell the old lady you're working late. My man didn't have a phone so he had to set his plan up in advance.

If a civil war starts you can get 10 Graves in a Chicago backyard and no stones will be used.

CPD rabbi did ceremony. Did a very nice job. It is nice to see hundreds come out. It says a lot for the CPD. It's a brotherhood that is enviable to other public service livelihoods. God bless the CPD & CFD. It's a tough job these days and if you are doing public service these days you deserve the respect and admiration of ALL of us. I believe there is respect for the CPD by most Chicagoans. I'm sure I'll get slammed for this post but I don't care. This may not be the blog to say thank you for your service, as there is a lot of negativity here, but I'll say it anywhere I can.

Thank you for your service and dedication to ALL our citizens.
Peace

It was a sunny day back in August of 1999, a young gay man was wandering through merrionette park aimlessly, depressed and suffering from a bleeding ass. This gay man was broke and tired of selling his ass night after night. If only there were another way for him to make a decent living. Fate would intervene that day as the gay man limped his way along 115th street there it was...a shining beacon and a sign from GOD. A shiny new restaurant called Bourbon Street. He applied for a job and became a waiter. After a year of making good money he finally was able to move out of his mom's basement and stop blowing strangers for cash and swallowing massive loads from black boys of CAL Park. Then one day two strapping young tactical officers sat down in his section and he was thrilled. Cops always tip 25% and he was very attracted to these cops. He served them as usual and gave them the bill. The gay waiter just could not contain his hormones and had an erection. The officer paid the bill and left a 20$ tip on table on a 30$ bill. But as they exited the table the faggot waiter grabbed one of the cops hands and placed it on his erect tiny penis. The officer said "what the fuck dude". The faggot said "sorry sir I just need a steady boyfriend with a good job". I'm not gay the cop said, I'm sorry. I should lock your ass up". The cop walked over to the table and grabbed the $20 bill off the table and said to the fag "no tip for you homo" and him and his partner exited the restaurant.The fag became depressed again and was fired several months later for masturbating in the storage room. He moved back with his mom and lives a solitary gay life and his only joy now comes from leaving retarded comments on his favorite police blog- detective shaved longcock..while he lubes up mini baseball bats and shoves them up his ass
