Re: “Mayor Rahm learns about the Blackhawks

$55 million on a basketball arena for DePaul?

I think you may be confused. The $55 million figure is for Maggie Daley Park, a different theft of tax dollars. The basketball arena for DePaul will cost taxpayers MUCH more... like $125 million.

Re: “The Vanishing Beat Cop

@FGFM... You want to call SCC racist but you represent yourself with a photo of Al Capone? Your credibility just hit ZERO! And your moron comment from earlier? Right back at ya!

Thanks for linking the blog, though. Chicagoans deserve to know the truth.

Re: “The Vanishing Beat Cop

Make sure you're sitting down when you read the following look "behind the numbers".

"Roderick Drew, the police department's media affairs director, confirmed this morning that when multiple persons are shot during a barrage of gunfire in Chicago it is counted as ONE aggravated battery."…

Re: “The Vanishing Beat Cop

Great job on this topic Mr Joravsky. Please allow me to add two bits of reality, as well.

1) In most discussions on crime, the Cook County States Attorney's office usually flies under the radar, but they have a MAJOR influence on everything. Everywhere else in the State of Illinois, POLICE agencies investigate crimes, arrest criminals and hand the case over to prosecutors for trial. Here in Bizarro World, however, felony charges must be approved by the prosecutors of Crook County FIRST. This, of course, keeps any of the the members of the Daley/Burke/Stroger/Alvarez/Madigan Crime Family from being charged with something and embarrassed, before the fix can be put in. It also insures the politicians will not have to explain to the public why their record of convictions sucks. If felonies are NOT approved for prosecution, they simply can't lose it at trial! Additionally, vast numbers of cases are plea bargained down to misdemeanor charges which then count as a conviction for the States Attorney, but also unleashes seriously violent criminals back on our citizens. Criminals simply are not afraid of prison.

2) Cook County Circuit Court judges are slated to run for the bench by... wait for it... THE SAME members of the Daley/Burke/Stroger/Alvarez/Madigan Crime Family. SO, if some judge is asked for a "favor" by the Crime Family, and it isn't granted by the judge, he is running the risk of losing his livelihood as a judge at the next election, when, mysteriously, the Crime Family no longer supports them for retention.

The stench in this town is sickening!
