Boss Daley Allows the Beat Down of Chicagoans by City Police While Busy Promoting Olympics

Mayor “Boss” Daley and the City Council of 50 Alderpersons are asleep at the wheel in protecting Chicagoans from the very people whose jobs are “to serve and to protect”.  Below are links to just some of the recent violence or intimidation perpetrated by the police against citizens of Chicago.  Videos are violent in nature and intended only for mature audiences.

  • Former Chicago Cop Christopher Lloyd was recently arrested for the rape of an Indiana woman.  Lloyd was once cleared by the City of Chicago when he shot a man 17 times, killing the victim and also later cleared of the beating of a 15 year old student.  It is this authors belief that had the City of Chicago Superintendent of Police, District Attorney and the Mayor had acted appropriately in the first incident, the subsequent violent crimes would have been avoided.
  • Officers Paul Powers, Greg Barnes and Sgt. Jeff Planey were all charged with aggravated battery. They have pleaded not guilty.  The cops starts in on guys who were simply playing a game of pool in a bar.
  • Shocking surveillance video shows off-duty Chicago police officer Anthony Abbate, 38, a 12-year veteran of the force, brutally beating a female bartender.  The cop became enraged after bartender stopped serving him more drinks given how intoxicated he was.
  • Robin Petrovic, a college English teacher, was out dancing at a popular Chicago nightclub, the “Funky Buddha Lounge,” when she got into an altercation with the bouncer and called police for help.  But according to Petrovic, the officer who showed up — James Chevas, a 12-year veteran — turned on her when she refused to sign a blank incident report and tried to write down his badge number.
  • A nurse is suing the Chicago Police Department after being cuffed for allegedly not complying with a police order.
  • Attorneys for victim Darrell Cannon, an alleged tortured victim of Jon Burge, a former Chicago Police Department commander,  added Mayor Richard M. Daley and former Mayor Jane Byrne as Defendants in a lawsuit alleging they conspired with State’s Attorney Richard Devine, Area 2 Commander Jon Burge, and numerous of his men to cover-up systematic torture of African-American suspects.

Meanwhile, Mayor “Boss” Daley and his cohorts in and around the City Council are busy filling their pockets with projects created and paid for by taxpayers money.  Their latest effort was the bid for the 2016 Summer Olympics which resulted in utter failure and possibly costing $100 million to Chicagoans.

Chicago Mayor, Boss Daley & Croney Pat Ryan Guarantees Olympics to Fatten Pockets of Friends & Family

How dumb are Chicagoans to simply rollover and let Boss Daley to act unilaterally to guarantee the loss of preparing for the Olympics.  This guarantee will cover any Olympic build out overruns at the expense to its citizens who are struggling to keep jobs, pay bills and taxes.

In all these Chicago city projects for the Olympics, where would all the money flow? Who’s controlling the construction, and the labor to be used? Who’s going to skim from the top?  What happens when the Olympics is over in 2 weeks?

In London, they are already getting warning signals of  construction costs to go over their projections.  The Chinese Central Government, the anti-free speech and other liberties we Americans take for granted, claims their Olympic made money can’t be trusted.

Remember the Boeing deal which the city of Chicago gave them $60 million tax breaks to move their headquarters? Didn’t the Mayor and the city’s aldermans said it would have long term benefits?

Most recently, the city faced a budget deficit and had to lease the city’s parking meters to a private organization led by Morgan Stanely which caused massive parking meter rate increases to the city’s residences and businesses.  Another form of tax despite the talking heads in Chicago’s City Halls.  So where are all these “must do” and “will have long term benefits” projects done for the residents of Chicago?  If you ask me, it sure reads like another Madoff & Stanford  ponzi scheme rolling expenditures out of Chicago taxpayers pockets and into city contractors of the mayor and the city council.

To this date, I still don’t understand why to park in the streets of the city, one has to purchase a Chicago City Sticker, and a “neighborhood sticker”. This is in addition to registering the vehicle with the state.  Now on top of all these annual fees, Chicagoans must pay extraordinary meter rates.

Listen to the pundits rationalize Daley’s shenanigans.  Bottom line, Boss Daley is working on a stimulus plan of his own pocket and those he surrounds himself with standing in the shadows.
