Chicago Police Department won’t release emails on Koschman case under Freedom of Information Act Request


Chicago Police Department officials exchanged a total of 297 emails — an average of six a day — during last year’s reinvestigation of a 2004 homicide case involving a nephew of then-Mayor Richard M. Daley, newly obtained records show.

The police refuse to make public those emails concerning the case of David Koschman, who died after being punched in the face by Daley nephew Richard J. “R.J.” Vanecko, an act they decided was self-defense. The case is now the subject of a probe by a special prosecutor appointed as a result of a Chicago Sun-Times investigation.

Transcripts of the emails exchanged in January and February 2011 total “several hundred pages of documents,” according to the police, who rejected a public records request for the emails.

Dirty, rotten motherfuckers, every last one involved.

The Koschmans need to add the names of every last cocksucker that even looked at the files in the death of their son. The truth will come out someday and every last person that impeded, covered up or made half truths need to bled dry and/or thrown in the joint for a while. This means every officer, detective, states attorney, Alvarez, Daley and Rahm.

The city "claims" that it would take too much time to get those records for the special prosecutor. Huh? Am I missing something here? This is a MURDER investigation. We all know what went on here. Fucking privileged assholes skirting the law. I can only hope Fat Whore Vanecko goes to prison for his dirty deed. Any cop who helped this prick should get booted in the ass.

If it's a secret, it's not government!

If it's military it should be our secret but how much does it cost and how sells the $900.00 hammers?

The excuses for not releasing the e-mails look like a clear case of "obstruction of justice," for which Alvarez and the cops involved need to be indicted and prosecuted. They must be made available to the Special Prosecutor and city Inspector General, as part of the investigation into Koschman's murder. The outcome of a homicide investigation should not rest on "clout" and favoritism!

The CPD has been refusing to cooperate with FOI requests for decades now, in violation of the Requester's Rights under the Freedom of Information Act.

I know for a fact that 99% of the Detectives working on this case couldn't of gave 2 sh*ts that it was Daley's nephew. Lead Detective was pissed he couldn't get charges approved. How many times do you guys have to read it. No one saw anyone hit anybody. The offender isn't going to admit he did it. I'm sorry there is no case. No witness no statement charges not approved. Im sorry the young man died but enough already nothing is going to change.
