Thomas Sheahan - Clout-heavy ex-police chief on $30k pension sweetener: ‘I deserve every fucking penny’

Keep voting for all the Michael Madigan & Richard Daley rubber stamps! Watch them bleed our pensions dry ass they inflate all of their bullshit pensions!

At first blush, a pension bill adopted by the General Assembly in 2007 seemed to have a laudable goal: extending retirement benefits to local police force employees’ widows after they remarried.

But buried within the legislation was something considerably less altruistic: a provision that enabled a member of one of Chicago’s better-known political families to boost his pension by more than $30,000 a year — while saddling unsuspecting taxpayers in Oak Brook with nearly $750,000 in funding liabilities, the Chicago Sun-Times and Better Government Association have learned.

The recipient of that larger pension, Thomas Sheahan, is a former police chief in Oak Brook, the current village manager in Lyons and a member of a Democratic clan that has helped rule Chicago’s Southwest Side for decades.

Sharp-tongued and unapologetic about benefitting from the provision that no one else has used, the 59-year-old Sheahan said of his pension: “I worked for 24 f------ years [in the public sector], I deserve every penny of it and I deserve a lot f------ more.”


Chicago's Beverly Neighborhood teed found shot dead in garage in Evergreen Park, Illinois

Evergreen Park police are investigating the shooting death of a 17-year-old boy who was found fatally shot lying on a garage floor. Shortly before 11:30 p.m., Evergreen Park Police responded to a call of a person shot in a garage on the 2600 block of West 99th Street.


Duluth MN police chase burglary suspect into cold Lake Superior

A 63-year-old grandmother couldn’t get the burglar, but a cold Lake Superior did.

A police foot chase Friday morning in the Congdon Park neighborhood of Duluth ended with a 36-year-old suspect jumping into the lake just before noon after facing a feisty woman at the house he allegedly broke into. She confronted him in the home and pursued him in her stocking feet before stopping a car and getting the driver to call 911 about 10:30 a.m.

The suspected burglar ended up losing most of the items he had taken from the home, including two flat-screen televisions and other electronic gear, the woman said.

Police set up a perimeter in the area and then heard a report of a man matching the suspect’s description nearing the Lakewalk at the London Road tunnel. He had put some of the stolen items in a trash bin while fleeing the home in an attempt to transport them, the woman said.

An officer then spotted the man on the 2700 block of London Road. The suspect ran down to the Lakewalk and jumped into Lake Superior. Officers didn’t have to wade in to apprehend him.

“They ordered him out, and he listened,” police Information Officer Jim Hansen said. The suspect had been struggling in the water, he said.

The woman, who wished to remain anonymous in fear of her safety, has been living at her son’s house on Branch Street in the Congdon Park neighborhood. She and her husband moved to Duluth from Australia a few months ago.

She had a harrowing tale to tell Friday night.

“The police said to not attempt to stop someone in the future,” she said.

She came home from a shopping trip with her 17-month-old grandson and noticed that a bathroom light was on. Curious, she went to the room and found “glass from one end to the other.”

She then heard footsteps upstairs and made her way up with the baby. The suspect was exiting a bedroom, she said, with a plastic bin of household items and a backpack.

“I said ‘no, no, no,’ you’re not taking that,” she told the News Tribune. He pushed past her and the baby and made his way downstairs to the front door, she said.

She put the baby down and followed. She said he turned around at the door and she grabbed him by the jacket and told him to drop the items.

“He said his daughter was a drug addict and he needed the money,” she said.

She said she then swore at him.

“I wasn’t afraid of him,” she said.

Her adrenaline was pumping and she said her days as a nurse dealing with all kinds of people kicked in.

She hurt her hand slightly when falling back into a wall, she said.

There was another tussle just outside the door and then the man ran across the street and to the back yards of neighboring homes, she said. That’s where he found the trash bin and began pulling it behind him, she said.

She gave up the chase and flagged down the car.

Her son, who was on his way out of state for a wedding, returned to Duluth on Friday.

The grandmother later identified the man who police found in the lake as the same man who was in the home.

The suspect will be charged with first-degree burglary and is in the St. Louis County Jail.

Because of the brazen nature of the break-in, police said they expect to find out about other crimes in interviews with the suspect.

Earlier this week, police issued an alert about increased home burglaries in the East Hillside neighborhood.

The woman said she doesn’t harbor any fear about crime in her new country.

“It happens everywhere,” she said.

OBAMA: Illegal Beaners who are immediate relatives of US citizens could stay in the U.S. while applying for permanent residency.


WASHINGTON — The Obama administration is proposing to make it easier for illegal immigrants who are immediate family members of American citizens to apply for permanent residency, a move that could affect as many as 1 million of the estimated 11 million immigrants living here illegally.

The new rule, which the Department of Homeland Security will post for public comment Monday, would reduce the time illegal immigrants are separated from their American families while seeking legal status, immigration officials said. Currently, such immigrants must leave the country to apply for a legal visa, often leading to long stints away as they await resolution of their applications.

The proposal is the latest move by the administration to use its executive powers to revise immigration procedures without changing the law. It reflects an effort by President Obama to improve his standing among those Latino voters who feel he has not met his 2008 campaign promise to pursue comprehensive immigration reform.

The president's push to pass the Dream Act, a law that would have created a path to citizenship for young illegal immigrants enrolled in college or enlisted in the military, was defeated in the Senate in December. No reform legislation has been under serious consideration since, yet the U.S. has deported a record number of illegal immigrants under Obama.

Many immigrants who might seek legal status do not pursue it out of fear they will not receive a "hardship waiver" of strict U.S. immigration laws: An illegal immigrant who has overstayed a visa for more than six months is barred from reentering the U.S. for three years; those who overstay more than a year are barred for 10 years.

Lisa Battan, an immigration attorney based in Boulder, Colo., said the current process is "encouraging people to remain illegal."

The revised rule would allow illegal immigrants to claim that time apart from a spouse, child or parent who is a U.S. citizen would create "extreme hardship," and would permit them to remain in the country as they apply for legal status. Once approved, applicants would be required to leave the U.S. briefly, simply to return to their native country and pick up their visa.

The change could reduce a family's time apart to one week in some cases, officials said. The White House hopes to have the new procedures in place by the end of the year.


Two Chicago Police Squad Cars Smash Into Each Other Responding To A 10-1

Two Chicago police cars collided with each other Saturday morning on the West Side, authorities said. The crash happened about 12:30 a.m. when two cars were responding to a call to help another, at 1500 South Homan.

No word on any of the officers condition at this time. We wish them well.

3 winning Mega Millions tickets, and one was sold in Illinois


Lottery ticket-holders in Illinois, Kansas and Maryland each selected the winning numbers for the world record-breaking $640 million Mega Millions jackpot, lottery officials said early Saturday.

Illinois’ winning ticket was sold in the small town of Red Bud, near St. Louis, and the winner used a quick pick to select the numbers, Illinois Lottery spokesman Mike Lang said. The Maryland Lottery said it sold a winning ticket at a retail store in Baltimore County.


Colored smash-and-grab thief picked ‘wrong person to mess with’

A white mom sat in her car texting anniversary wishes to a friend while her baby slept in back in West Town Thursday — when the passenger-side window exploded.

A colored man reached inside the Volvo and grabbed the woman’s purse, then ran to his car and drove off, police said.

But the 36-year-old woman decided not to sit put.

“Most people, including me, would have let go,” the woman’s husband said Friday. “ ... But this guy picked the wrong person to mess with.”

From the FOP 7 Chicago Update Website

Restrictions on Use of Elective Time

At a recent March CompStat meeting, a District Commander was called on the carpet for allowing sixty percent of his available manpower to be off for the day. Apparently, members who were RDO (always 33% on every watch), members who were on furlough, members who were IOD, and members who were sick or injured were included in those statistics. Any Police Officer realizes the District Commander has absolutely no control over any of these these numbers.

What does the District Commander have control over? Elective time off.

The Lodge has been informed by members of several districts that restrictions are now being placed on the use of elective time off as a result of the CompStat meeting. Several of these Districts have now established an arbitrary number for the amount of Officers that will be allowed to use elective time on any given day.

Any Officer who is denied the use of compensatory time due to the implementation of this arbitrary practice should contact the Lodge. A grievance will be filed by the Lodge on behalf of the members of the affected District if necessary.


Detective Division Rumors

The Lodge has made an inquiry with Chief Tom Byrne regarding rumors surrounding the assignment of Area Property Crimes Detectives which will begin Sunday, March 31, 2012

Detectives will not be reporting to District Commanders. Detectives will continue to work for the Detective Area bosses. It will be up to the Area Commanders and Area Sergeants if property crimes detectives will report for roll-calls at the Areas or at Districts. (For example, detectives assigned to "Area South Property Crimes" and who are responsible for 007th District property crimes, will be allowed to report directly to the 007th district, rather than to travel to the Area facilities at 111th Street, at the discretion of the Detective Area boss.)

Logistical issues regarding department radios and vehicles will be left to the Detective Area bosses. At this time, every detective should have a locker in their Area of assignment.

Rumors have also suggested that property crime detectives will be working in uniform and/or working beat cars in districts; "this rumor is absolutely not true".

With murders up 35%, McCarthy shakes up Chicago police brass - Because the brass were doing the murders???

With Chicago suffering a 35 percent spike in murders this year, police Supt. Garry McCarthy announced a reshuffling of his command staff Friday, replacing commanders in five of the city’s 23 districts.

McCarthy also promoted three supervisors to deputy chief positions. He said the changes were made to “strengthen the department’s ongoing efforts to reduce violence” and create a “more efficient departmental structure.”

McCarthy promoted James Gibson as commander in the Morgan Park district; Lynette Helm in Grand-Crossing; James O’Donnell in Jefferson Park; Maria Pena in Marquette, and Barbara West in Austin.

A police spokeswoman said no district commanders were demoted to make way for the changes in those five districts. They replaced commanders who were promoted to other positions or retired, she said.

Kathleen Boehmer, former commander in the Town Hall district, was promoted to deputy chief of detectives.

Keith Calloway, former commander of detectives in the Calumet Area, was named deputy chief of the organized crime bureau.

Judge Toomin questions self-defense in Daley nephew case

A judge questioned Thursday how the police concluded that Richard J. “R.J.” Vanecko, a nephew of then-Mayor Richard M. Daley, acted in self-defense when he delivered a deadly blow nearly eight years ago, noting that five witnesses have given sworn statements denying that the victim, David Koschman, was physically aggressive.

“Certainly, none of these statements lend credence to that conclusion,” Cook County Circuit Judge Michael P. Toomin told a lawyer for Cook County State’s Attorney Anita Alvarez, who’s fighting a Koschman family petition seeking to have a special prosecutor investigate the case. “There’s utterly no evidence he was physically aggressive. Where does the claim of self-defense have its genesis?”


Parents of murdered white British students by black youth in Florida criticise Barack Obama - Shawn Tyson murdered James Cooper and James Kouzaris

The parents of two British students murdered in Florida have criticised President Barack Obama for his lack of compassion over their son's deaths.

His failure to respond to three letters sent to the White House was because there was no "political value" and not worthy of a few minutes of his time. They spoke out as teenager Shawn Tyson began a life sentence after being found guilty of the murder of James Cooper and James Kouzaris last April. The 17 year old, who shot the men as they begged for their lives, will die in prison. His conviction of first degree murder carries an mandatory life sentence without the chance of parole. The powerfully built teen even looked bored as emotional DVD presentations about the dead men prepared by their grieving parents were shown in court.

UPDATE: Sheriff Tom Dart.... Let's spend a bunch of tax payer dollars on digging up properties looking for bodies from 40 years ago!

Cook County State's Attorney's Anita Alvarez denied Sheriff Dart's request to dig for bones that mosty likely ARE NOT THERE.... Little Tommy goes home crying....

The Cook County State’s Attorney’s office denied Cook County Sheriff’s officials’ request for another chance to search for victims of notorious serial killer and rapist John Wayne Gacy in the backyard of a Northwest Side apartment building, citing a lack of probable cause.

In 1998, Chicago Police excavated the property in the 6100 block of West Miami Avenue after a retired officer tipped them that he had seen Gacy there one morning with a shovel in the 1970s. No bodies were found.



CLICK HERE FOR AN UPDATE: COOK COUNTY STATES ATTORNEY REFUSES DART'S REQUEST TO DIG UP PROPERTIES... (Maybe Anita is afraid the dig will turn up R.J. Venecko evidence???)

Sheriff Tom Dart wants new dig for POSSIBLE John Wayne Gacy victims from almost 40 years ago.... Then we must dig for more clues in the kidnapping and murder of Charles Lindbergh's baby too!!!

San Bernardino County (CA) Sheriff Deputy Shot - Rapist fatally wounded in shootout with police


San Bernardino County sheriff's deputies were trying to track down a suspect in a rape and robbery Thursday when they found themselves in a shootout with the suspect, a spokeswoman for the department said.

One deputy was shot in the leg and the suspect was killed shortly after 10 a.m. in the parking lot of a Stater Bros. grocery store at Highland and Del Rosa avenues in San Bernardino.

Deputies from Highland and Yucaipa tracked the suspect in the March 22 incident to the shopping center. When they arrived, the suspect noticed the deputies and ran. He then turned around and fired multiple shots at deputies, said spokeswoman Jodi Miller.

A woman who was with the suspect has been detained, Miller said. Their names were not immediately available.

The injured deputy was released from the hospital and is recovering at home with his family, Miller said.

Sneed exclusive: Shot cop Del Pearson receives gift of a lifetime from top cop Garry McCarthy

Photo: Officer Del W. Pearson holds his newly-issued police badge (with the number 6254 that was given to his father, Officer Delphys W. Pearson Jr.), at his home on the far South Side Wednesday, March 28, 2012, in Chicago. The younger Pearson's badge number was previously 16462. | John J. Kim~Sun-Times

The Pearson Case ...

It’s called Chicago Police star #6254.

It also was part of the tonic enabling a critically wounded Chicago police officer, Del Pearson, to go home to his family Tuesday.

◆To wit: Top cop Garry McCarthy may snag headlines for his tireless anti-street gang work, but his quiet work behind the crime scene — especially in the case of Pearson — deserves a big hand.

◆Translation: Sneed hears McCarthy brought a special gift to Pearson, who was nearly killed March 19 when he was shot in the chest just above his bulletproof vest.

◆Star Power: Several days before Pearson’s release from Advocate Christ Medical Center in Oak Lawn Wednesday, McCarthy brought Pearson his father’s old police star, which now will be his active duty star (Chicago police have stars, not badges). It was on Pearson’s arm when he left the hospital.

◆Mac Attack: “For years Pearson had been trying to get it, but the star his dad wore had been recirculated to other officers over the years and his efforts had failed,” said a source. “When the Police Superintendent (McCarthy) found out about it, he tracked it down and gave it to Pearson. It worked wonders on how he felt.”

◆Background: “My dad worked for the Chicago Police department for 29 years before he retired,” Pearson told Sneed. “We even worked in the same South Chicago district. But he died before I graduated from the police academy. I attempted to get my dad’s badge number for ten years, but it didn’t work out. It was issued to someone else.”

◆Mom to the rescue: “While I was in surgery, it was my mother who told Superintendent McCarthy about my dad and the star and the effort I had put into trying to retrieve it,” Pearson told Sneed.

◆Finale: “When Superintendent McCarthy presented it to me it was very emotional,” said Pearson. “What can I say. It was a great thing. It was just what I needed.”

◆The kicker: What goes around comes around. Sneed has learned when McCarthy was a New York police officer, he was given the great gift of his father’s NYPD shield.

Narcotic police officer's gun goes off accidentally during a struggle and strikes a woman a floor below... What's the odds on that happening???

Narcotics cop accidentally shoots woman while searching Brooklyn apartment
Bullet went through the floor and into the apartment where the woman lives

A narcotics cop struggling with a suspect in a Brooklyn apartment accidentally fired his gun through the floor, striking a woman sleeping in the flat below, police said.

The 25-year-old victim was grazed in the left forearm and rushed to Kings County Hospital after the 6:05 a.m. incident and is expected to make a full recovery.

Two suspects were taken into custody and drugs were found in the third-floor apartment at 3003 Clarendon Road.

Sources said plainclothes officers from Brooklyn South Narcotics showed up with a search warrant for the flat.

The first officer to enter was wearing his shield around his neck and apparently had his gun in his hand when one a 28-year-old man lunged at him in an effort to flee, sources said.

“There was a struggle between an officer and the suspect,’’ one source said. “The officer’s gun accidentally discharged one round.”

The bullet tore through the floor and entered the ceiling of the apartment below, where the woman was sleeping.

The male suspect and a 29-year-old woman were both arrested.

A little girl was later seen taken from the scene, but it wasn’t clear if she was in either apartment at the time of the incident.

The woman was in stable condition at Kings County and will probably be released later Thursday, sources said.

As Oak Forest, Illinois turns black, it's revenue turns red...Remember Food Stamps/Link Cards pay no sales taxes

Oak Forest’s bigger sales tax bite ‘never a good thing’

At Style Carpets in Oak Forest, it’s a two-person show, with Lauralee Dove tending to customers while her brother, Garrett, handles the carpet and tile installations.

A recession-induced slump in sales forced them to let go an employee who worked evenings and Saturdays, and they’ve cut back garbage pickups to save money. Some months there’s not enough money coming in to cover all the bills demanding to be paid.

“It’s down to bare bones here,” Lauralee Dove said.

With Oak Forest’s city council approving a 1 percent home-rule sales tax, raising the city’s tax rate on general merchandise to 9.25 percent starting July 1, she’s worried it will hurt not only Style Carpets and other businesses in Oak Forest, but also dissuade other businesses from opening in the city.

“It’s never a good thing when taxes are added or raised,” Dove said.

City officials say they had no other choice, facing a multimillion-dollar drop in revenues the last four years because of the economy.

“This was the last resort,” city finance director Colleen Julian said.

The new tax will apply to “tangible personal property” as well as alcohol, soft drinks and restaurant food, but not services, groceries, prescription drugs or licensed vehicles.

City officials said the tax is expected to generate $1.1 million in annual revenue, allowing Oak Forest to rehire two police officers, a firefighter and two other employees.

Officials said the city has cut full-time staff by 12 percent, while part-time positions have been cut in half.

“You just can’t cut anymore,” Ald. Mark Keating said.

Keating said the council had considered boosting property taxes by 15 percent, but that would have caused commercial businesses’ property taxes to increase by 45 percent.

Bill O’Sullivan, a director at Gaelic Park and an Oak Forest resident, said that while the 1 percent hike on its own isn’t much, the overall effect gives Oak Forest “one of the highest tax rates around.”

He realizes the city has made severe budget cuts to cope with declining revenues, but is concerned the tax increase could hurt Gaelic Park’s business, which already has suffered what he described as a “noticeable” drop due to the economy. Those planning large parties or banquets might consider going elsewhere, O’Sullivan said.

“There are fine banquet places in other towns that we compete with on a regular basis,” he said.

Dove said she understands that cities and villages, like businesses, are being squeezed by an ever-present demand for services as revenues fall, but questions the timing.

“This whole economy is in the Dumpster,” she said. “I don’t think that raising taxes is the answer. There’s got to be another way to do things.”

$10 Million Verdict for Family of Edgewater Apartment Murder Victim - Apartment building management allowed illegal beaner attacker to live there

The jury should have also hammered the City of Chicago for being a Sanctuary City for Illegal Aliens... Another American citizen brutally raped and murdered by an illegal alien from Mexico!

Chicago - A jury late on Tuesday returned a $10 million verdict on behalf of the family of a 21-year-old woman who was killed by a neighbor in her apartment in the Edgewater neighborhood in 2005.

Attorneys at Clifford Law Offices tried the case in front of a jury for a week-long jury trial against the apartment building’s management company and owner, as well as the woman’s killer, a release Wednesday from the law firm said.

Melissa Dorner lived in a studio apartment in the building at 6151 N. Winthrop Ave., hostessed at two restaurants and was considering a return to school to study fashion design.

Roberto Ramirez lived in another unit with friends and worked in a factory.

On Jan. 24, 2005, Ramirez got into Dorner’s apartment and raped, beat and strangled her.

Ramirez, an illegal alien, then returned to his apartment covered in blood, told his roommates he’d done something “really bad” and fled back to his home country of Mexico, police said.

He was caught there a year later, but wasn’t returned to Chicago until July of 2006 -- only after authorities, with the Dorner family’s consent, agreed not to pursue the death penalty against him.

He later pleaded guilty to her killing and is serving a 50-year sentence at the Menard State Penitentiary, the release said.

“Had the management company followed its own policies and procedures in screening prospective tenants, Ramirez would never have been in the building,” attorney Colin Dunn said following the verdict. “Numerous policies were either violated or ignored.”

Ramirez had assaulted another female tenant in the building just two months prior to Dorner’s killing, the release said. Though the building’s on-site manager was told of the incident, the defendants did not follow up.

The defendants never made any offer to resolve the case. The jury reached its verdict after deliberating a day and a-half before Cook County Circuit Court Judge Daniel K. Lynch. It assessed 90 percent liability to Ramirez and 10 percent to the management company, Wilmette Real Estate and Management Co., LLC of Wilmette, and owner BCH Tower LLC of Chicago, according to the release.

Five Chicago Police Involved Shootings in Six Days - Hey how did we miss a day????

Five Chicago Police Involved Shootings in Six Days:

By Mike Flannery, FOX Chicago News
Chicago - Five Chicago Police involved shootings in six days. We went into the neighborhood where two of them happened to find out what is going on.

Bernardine Gilty, Sister of Dead Man. They killed him because he had that black bag, and he had it all day long.

According to the dead man's sister, the black bag contained electronic surveillance equipment used at this third floor window by Chicago Police officers. The surrounding area's known for gang-related drug activity. His family and friends claim that 52-year-old Ricky Bradley, a former school teacher who abused drugs and ended up homeless here, might have been a petty thief, but wouldn't touch a gun, much less pull one on police.

Minneapolis, Minnesota police alert to black criminal 'flash mobs' attacking downtown whites and around Nicollet Mall area

A sudden, random attack on a group of bicyclists on Nicollet Mall kicked off a melee early Friday evening that had police pursuing 15 to 20 youths who assaulted two men, rioted at a restaurant patio and eventually fled, according to court documents.

The event unfolded right in front of police officers who were patrolling the pedestrian thoroughfare after "numerous, recent 'flash mobs' of individuals engaging in criminal conduct," according to a criminal complaint.

The other incidents that had police patrolling the street were not described in the complaint, but authorities said they've prompted more surveillance of the busy sidewalks of Nicollet Mall.

In Friday's incident, police officers were monitoring seven youths at a bus stop near the intersection of 5th Street S. and Nicollet Mall, when they saw them "suddenly surge" toward a group of three bicyclists. The youths knocked one man to the ground and broke his jaw. They surrounded another man and beat him.

As officers gave chase, the group fled to a nearby restaurant patio, where one of them picked up a glass candelabra and threw it at one of the bicyclists, missing him.

The officers captured Antonio D. Jones, 20, of Brooklyn Park. He was charged Monday in Hennepin County District Court with felony fifth-degree drug possession, gross-misdemeanor third-degree riot and misdemeanor fifth-degree assault.


Due to the Trayvon Martin killing - Racists are now using the word "Trayvon" to replace the "N" word

Across social networking outlets and blogs white supremacists and extremists are encouraging others to use the word "Trayvon" instead of the "N" word. Various postings have warned others that using the "N" word when in a confrontation with an African American can lead to hate crime charges. These same postings are now asking their viewers to use Trayvon's name instead of verbally stating the "N" word.

Trayvon's name is also being slandered on the Internet. One of many examples is the below cartoon image where a white man is calling his floating stool in the toilet a "Trayvon".

Various civil rights organizations have informed us that they are receiving numerous examples of Trayvon's name being desecrated and also being used as a racial epithet.

90 Year Old White Couple Beaten To A Pulp In Home Invasion By Colored Offenders.... Hey Bobby Rush.. Going to wear anything for this white couple???

UPDATE: Once again it takes an overseas newspaper to report the truth because the American newspapers are too fucking afraid to post the truth...They might get boycotted against by the fucking Negroes!

Couple met and married within a month and stayed together for 65 years... only to be parted after home invader beat wife to deathNancy Strait, 85, was sexually assaulted and battered to death by burglar
Her husband Bob, 90, suffered a broken jaw and broken ribs in attack
Police have arrested 20-year-old Tyrone Dale David Woodfork



TULSA, Oklahoma -
Tulsa Police are looking for the attackers who broke into an elderly couple's home and beat both of them.

It happened in the 3300 block of East Virgin Street in Tulsa.

Family members say 90-year-old Bob Strait and his 85-year-old wife, Nancy, were fine Tuesday evening. A family member found the front door kicked in and the two victims badly beaten Wednesday afternoon.

EMSA says it took both victims to the hospital in serious condition.

Tulsa police spent the late afternoon Wednesday interviewing neighbors for clues, hoping for a lead to whomever would beat up an old couple and leave them for dead.

"It's terrible – there is no other word to describe it. We're doing everything that we can think of doing to try to catch the person that did this, first to find out who it was, and then try to get them in custody as soon as we can," said Tulsa Police Captain Dave Roberts.

The victims are well liked in the neighborhood where they lived for decades.

"They were very good people. You couldn't meet a nicer person. Have you heard that old statement: man amongst men? That's what he was," said neighbor Roosevelt Russell.

Police believe the attack was mid-day Wednesday, meaning the couple may have been laying there all afternoon before their family found them.

"I can't think of nicer people this could have happened to. They were just as nice as can be. You couldn't ask for nicer neighbors," said neighbor Ronald Hinnen.

Police say the victims were so badly hurt they were unable to speak to officers. At last check, the male victim was conscious. The current condition of the female victim is not known.

Tulsa Police are looking for two vehicles, one driven by the attackers and one belonging to the victims. Police say the attackers also stole items from inside the home.

The attackers' vehicle is a late-model maroon SUV, missing a hubcap on its right rear wheel. The victim's vehicle is a 2001 Dodge Neon, reddish orange in color and has an Oklahoma license tag of 402GCV.

Police have not released a description of the attackers yet but neighbors reported black males fleeing the scene.

If you have any information that would lead to arrest of the attackers, call 918-596-COPS.

Rod Blagojevich got 14 years in prison - Blago's Chief of Staff, John Harris, just got 10 DAYS.... Yes, that's DAYS not YEARS

CHICAGO – A judge has sentenced Rod Blagojevich's former chief of staff to 10 days in prison for helping his old boss attempt to sell President Obama's vacated Senate seat.

John Harris' sentencing came Wednesday at federal court in Chicago-- two weeks after the former Illinois governor reported to a Colorado prison to begin serving a 14-year prison term on related charges.

Harris pleaded guilty in a 2010 plea agreement to conspiracy to commit bribery. He faced up to five years.

Blagojevich fought the charges against him in the media and courts until his imprisonment.

The 50-year-old Harris began cooperating just days after both men were arrested at their homes on Dec. 9, 2008. His cooperation included testifying against Blagojevich.

The same U.S. district judge, James Zagel, sentenced both men.

WHAT A LESBIAN GOLD DIGGER WILL DO FOR MONEY... Kelly Moriarty's leg washes up on shore... I would want to die too if I ate out Doris Carter too!

Photo: Gold Digger Kelly Moriarty (right), age 38, whose severed leg was discovered by Florida tourists two days after Christmas, had disappeared with girlfriend Doris "The Hag" Carter, 62, authorities say. Kelly's teeth had look like she had ate a bad wig due to all the hair stuck in between her teeth.

A severed leg discovered by Florida tourists two days after Christmas belonged to a woman who disappeared along with her lover in mid-December.

DNA testing connected the neatly-sliced leg to Kelly Moriarty, 38, of Bradenton, Fla., said the Hillsborough County Sheriff’s Office.

She was last seen with girlfriend Doris Carter, 62, when the two drove off in Moriarty’s car from the older woman’s home on Dec. 16.

The abandoned car was discovered four days later in Parrish, near Bradenton, with authorities saying there was no sign of foul play inside the vehicle.

The severed limb washed ashore on Dec. 27, but was not identified for three months, officials said. Carter remains missing and the investigation is continuing.

The dead woman’s family released a statement expressing their sadness and their struggle with the grisly end to their search for Moriarty.

“As you can imagine, the full extent of our loss has yet to be realized, we are in shock, and are grieving Kelly’s passing,” the statement read. “We loved and miss her tremendously.”

The message expressed hope that law enforcement “quickly find whoever did this to her and bring them to justice and bring some closure to the family.”

Section 8 Housing Inspector licked woman's chest to pass inspection - He told her, I can tell you have a lot of kids by your giant nipples!

A lawsuit was filed Tuesday claiming that a woman failed a yearly Section 8 home inspection at her Lynwood home because she refused the sexual advances of the county inspector.

Collen Askins claims that Housing Authority of Cook County employee John D. Espinosa came to her Lynwood home to conduct a yearly Section 8 home inspection on May 23, 2011, according to the suit filed in Cook County Circuit Court.

During the inspection, Espinosa grabbed Askins’ buttocks and licked her chest, the suit said. Espinosa also told her while on her patio, “You know, on a nice summer night, I’m sure we can sit out here, have a drink — I can bring a drink over and we can sit out here.”

Espinosa told Askins she should submit to his sexual advances or the HACC would fail her home inspection, the suit said. If Askins complained to the police, Espinosa said he would also fail the inspection.

Before entering Askins’ home, Espinosa told her that the home passed the inspection and had Adkins sign paperwork indicating that her home passed, the suit said.

For more than an hour after leaving Askins’ home, Espinosa sat in his vehicle parked in her driveway, the suit said. During that time, Espinosa sent a text to Askins’ private cell phone that she’d give to HACC, which read in part, “This is my cell. Send me a sexy picture.”

The suit claims Askins rebuffed Espinosa’s sexual advances and contacted Lynwood police.

Askins received a letter from HACC, dated May 23, 2011, indicating that she failed the home inspection, the suit said.

The six-count suit claims a violation of the Illinois Gender Violence Act, battery and assault, and negligent/willful and wanton hiring and retention. It seeks more than $300,000 in damages, attorney fees and court costs.

A HACC spokesperson was not available for comment Tuesday evening.

Illegal Beaner Shalimar Santiago who is also a street gang member gets 54 years for ramming SUV, killing UIC student

A reputed Chicago gang member was sentenced Wednesday to 54 years in prison for ramming an SUV full of lost teenagers who he mistakenly thought were members of a rival gang.

Shalimar Santiago, 30, was convicted in February of murder in the death of 18-year-old University of Illinois at Chicago student Stephanie Herrera of Melrose Park.

Judge Joseph M. Claps sentenced Santiago, who also had been convicted of several counts of aggravated battery for injuring seven of Herrera’s friends who were seated in the Lincoln Navigator in the early morning hours of Aug. 1, 2009.

Police said Santiago, a Latin King known as “Capone,” plowed a speeding purple van into the SUV full of young men and women who were trying to find their way back to their suburban homes after a night of clubbing, prosecutors said.

A few hours before the wreck in the 3600 block of West Augusta, a fellow member of Santiago’s gang was wounded in a shooting he believed was carried out by the Latin Dragons.

When Santiago saw the black SUV, he thought it was the culprits, and rammed the vehicle, authorities said.

But his attorney argued that it was simply a traffic accident.

General Dwight Washington - Streets & San worker gets 9 years for Gold Coast DUI crash - Plowed his city truck into a group of people drunk as a skunk

A former city employee was sentenced Wednesday to nine years in prison for drunkenly plowing his work truck down a Gold Coast sidewalk, injuring seven people.

Dwight Washington had faced up to 48 years in prison, after pleading guilty Friday to four counts of aggravated driving under the influence.

Judge James B. Linn gave the 62-year-old the much shorter prison term, saying, according to one victim’s attorney, that Washington didn’t set out that day to hurt anyone.


Chicago police officers may lose a pay raise and any retro pay for one year due to FOP error

Chicago Cops may miss pay hike because of union gaffe: sources
Chicago Police officers may have to wait until next year to negotiate a new contract with the city — and forgo a retroactive pay increase in 2012 — thanks to an embarrassing oversight by the new leadership of the Fraternal Order of Police, City Hall sources said Tuesday.

Police and fire contracts are due to expire on June 30, but a little-known clause requires unions to notify the city between Feb. 1 and March 1 that they intend to terminate their contracts and commence negotiations on a new agreement. If they don’t serve notice during that time, the contract automatically rolls over for another year.

City firefighters and unions representing police sergeants, lieutenants and captains notified the city within the required time frame.

But City Hall contends FOP President Mike Shields missed the March 1 deadline, giving Mayor Rahm Emanuel an opening to either put off negotiations until June 30, 2013, or negotiate only those items that would cut taxpayer costs.

A mayoral confidant emphasized that the city has not yet decided whether to “stick it in the ear” of rank-and-file police officers.

“But we’re reserving the right to be selective in what we talk about because they blew it,” the source said.

Emanuel is expected to take a hard line in negotiations, specifically targeting a sick-leave policy that allows officers to take up to 365 days off every two years; a $1,800-a-year uniform allowance and yearly duty-availability pay — $2,800 that compensates officers for being on call at any time.

In an email to the Chicago Sun-Times, Shields maintained his letter to the city was “well within the timeline” required by state law.

“There is no issue . . . regarding the FOP’s intent to modify the terms and conditions of the labor agreement that expires June 30,” he wrote. “While others may believe that negotiations should be about technicalities and posturing, the FOP believes the upcoming negotiations . . . should be about protecting the citizens of Chicago while respecting the incredible work performed by members of the FOP. The difficult issues out there like manpower need to be resolved by both sides sitting down to make the city safer.”

Two years ago, Chicago taxpayers dodged a fiscal bullet when an arbitrator awarded rank-and-file police officers a 10 percent pay increase over five years, their smallest increase in 30 years.

The pay raise fell short of the 16.1 percent once offered by then-Mayor Richard M. Daley. The FOP initially demanded 24 percent.

I want to hear the FOP side of this before everybody jumps the gun on this...



Contract Negotiations Clarification

No matter what you read in the Sun Times quoting "off the record" sources, there is no dispute between the FOP and the City regarding upcoming contract negotiations. Our agreement was timely re-opened on March 20, 2012, well within the time limits that apply for modifications that would improve your labor agreement, address the critical issue of manpower, the safety of the public and of police officers, increase your wages and improve officers' welfare. Under the Illinois Public Labor Relations Act, 5 ILCS 315/7, a party to a collective bargaining agreement must terminate or modify the agreement by giving the other side notice of the intent to terminate or modify the agreement 60 days before the expiration date. Our contract expires June 30. Therefore, any notice before May 1 would have been timely notice. The IPLRA does not require us to give the City notice by March 1.

However, the labor agreement, Section 28.1, is anything but clear and unambiguous. The agreement provides that "notice of termination" must be given by March 1, 2012. FOP never intended to send a notice of termination. Our labor agreement needs modifications, not termination.

Your core negotiating committee has already solicited your ideas for improving our contract and the committee will be representing your interests in the negotiations no matter when the City comes to the table. Any further recommendations to the committee should be submitted via email to or

Rep. Bobby Rush kicked off House floor for wearing 'hoodie' for Trayvon "The Dead Shithead" Martin

Pretty soon we will hear that Trayvon Martin was murdered for whistling at a white girl like Emmett Till....Hey Negroes & liberals... You picked the wrong piece of shit to be a hero.... Trayvon martin GOT WHAT HE DESERVED!

Former gang banger and US Rep. Bobby Rush (D-Ill.) on Wednesday morning was asked to leave the House floor after removing his suit jacket to reveal a "hoodie," then putting the hood of his sweatshirt on his head to protest the Trayvon Martin killing in Florida. A photo of Rush can be seen here.

"Racial profiling has to stop," Rush said. "Just because someone wears a hoodie does not make them a hoodlum." Rush also put on sunglasses.

Rush quoted the Bible while presiding officer Gregg Harper (R-Miss.) repeatedly interrupted him, then asked the Sergeant at Arms to enforce the House prohibition on hats in the chamber.

"The chair must remind members that clause 5 of rule 17 prohibits the wearing of hats in the chamber when the House is in session," Harper said after Rush left. "The chair finds that the donning of a hood is not consistent with this rule. Members need to remove their hoods or leave the floor."

Several members of the Congressional Black Caucus have taken to the House floor for the last week to call for the arrest of George Zimmerman, who allegedly shot Martin in Florida in April. While these calls have escalated, Florida police have said some witnesses saw Martin beat Zimmerman before the shooting, and Zimmerman's lawyers have said he acted in self-defense.

New Black Panther Party Leader Arrested - No not by the feds but local police

Hashim Nzinga, a New Black Panther Party leader who gained attention when he announced a bounty on the shooter in the highly publicized Trayvon Martin case, has been arrested, the DeKalb County Sheriff's Office said.

Nzinga, 49, was arrested for possession of a firearm by a convicted felon, according to a release sent by sheriff's office spokesman Adrion Bell.

Nzinga recently said on CNN that the New Black Panther Party is placing a $10,000 reward for the capture of George Zimmerman, who fatally shot the unarmed Martin, 17, in a gated community in Sanford, Florida. The announcement said CNN referred to Nzinga as the New Black Panther Party’s Chief of Staff.

In the announcement, Bell said the DeKalb warrant states that Nzinga was in possession of an FN Herstal 5.7 x 28 handgun. Investigators learned that Nzinga allegedly pawned the gun at A Stone Mountain Pawn Shop at 4591 Rockbridge Rd., the sheriff's office said.

According to the sheriff's office announcement, Nzinga’s February 2012 convictions of felony deposit account fraud in Gwinnett County made this transaction illegal.

Fugitive squad members arrested Nzinga at his probation office at 410 West Oak Street in Lawrenceville. Nzinga was transported to the DeKalb County Jail without further incident, the sheriff's office said.

Judge acquits white militia members of sedition, conspiracy

Defense attorneys had argued their actions were protected by their First Amendment free speech rights.

The New Black Panthers raise their bounty to ONE MILLION DOLLARS for the capture of George Zimmerman... I think that's in Food Stamps and Link Cards

If this had been a white supremacist group putting a bounty on a black man, would this be allowed to stand? Is abducting George Zimmerman for one million dollars worth the price of relinquishing freedom? Because if Zimmerman can be abducted, if the New Black Panthers can legally get away with this without being charged with criminal activity by our government, then anyone, including you, can have a bounty of any price put on their head by anyone, for any reason. If Zimmerman is abducted, and if he is killed in the process, he will have his due process infringed upon. Why are the actions of the New Black Panther Party not called a hate crime? Why is Eric holder not investigating this group? (Besides the fact he is still trying to save his own political butt in the Fast and furious Scandal.) Why is black America not more outraged? Why are Hispanics not outraged? Why are whites still being blamed for what happened to Trayvon Martin? If no one takes the New Black Panthers up on their one million dollar offer, what will they increase it to next? And – will that continue to remain under the radar of the MSM, who care more about blaming conservatives for Trayvon’s killing than exposing the facts concerning how and why he was killed?
