Mob hitman Frank Calabrese Sr. got wacked in prison

Operation Family SecretsConvicted mob hitman Frank Calabrese Sr. has died in a federal prison in North Carolina.

Calabrese died on Christmas at the Butner Federal Correctional Complex, where he had been serving a life sentence, according to a spokesman for the Bureau of Prisons. He was 75.

Calabrese, one of Chicago’s most feared mobsters, was convicted in 2007 during the Operation Family Secrets trial.
A federal jury held Calabrese and two other aging mobsters -- Joseph "Joey the Clown" Lombardo and James Marcello -- responsible for 10 murders after a trial that exposed the seedy inner workings of organized crime in Chicago.
Calabrese, a portly, bearded loan shark who according to witnesses doubled as a hit man, was found responsible for seven mob murders. Witnesses, including his brother Nicholas Calabrese, said he strangled victims with a rope, then cut their throats to make sure they were dead.
Marcello, described by prosecutors as a top leader of the Chicago Outfit, was held responsible for the June 1986 murder of Tony "The Ant" Spilotro, the Chicago mob's longtime man in Las Vegas and the inspiration for the Joe Pesci character in the movie "Casino."

The Family Secrets trial was the biggest organized crime case in Chicago in years. The defendants were convicted of operating the Chicago Outfit as a racketeering enterprise.

They allegedly squeezed "street tax," similar to protection money, out of businesses, ran sports bookmaking and video poker operations as well as engaged in loan sharking. And they allegedly killed many of those who they feared might spill mob secrets to the government -- or already were doing so.

The cases went unsolved for decades.

Calabrese’s attorney in the Family Secrets trial, Joseph “Shark” Lopez, said Calabrese had been in ill health.

“Last I spoke with him a little over a year ago, he was a sick man,” Lopez said. “He was on about 17 different medications. But always a strong-willed individual.”

After spending hundreds of hours together while Calabrese was on trial, Lopez said the two developed a relationship.

“Sure he was difficult at times because he was used to getting his way, but I only saw one side of him and that was the good side,” Lopez said. “He was a pleasure to deal with and a pleasure to talk to. We’d talk about cooking, restaurants, history, you name it.”

“He was quick-witted, smart and street-savvy,” Lopez said. “Always very upbeat; nothing could keep Frank down.”

Lopez said Calabrese was very religious, making his Christmas day death feel “odd.”

“He always talked about how much he loved spending Christmas with his family. It was his favorite holiday of the year,” he said.

Lopez said he thinks there will be mixed feelings in Chicago about Calabrese’s death.

“I’m sure there are some people really sad and some people really happy,” Lopez said. “I’m sad for his family.”
Frank Coconate, a friend of the family, said he heard about the death through Calabrese's wife.

"I’m a little shook up about it,’’ said Coconate, 54, who took vacations to Florida with his wife and Calabrese and often dined with him. “It’s a family tragedy."

Coconate said Calabrese had heart problems, and had broken his hip in the shower about a month ago.

Coconate remembered Calabrese as a “unique individual’’ with a temper that would flare up unexpectedly, even during dinners out with his family.

"If he heard something, if you shot your mouth off, you’d be having dinner and he’d ask you to come outside and he’d crack you in the head," Coconate said. "He was a throwback gangster. He would fight with his fists and was strong as a bull. But that’s the business they’re are in.

"He was a great manipulator," he said, recalling recent allegations that Calabrese persuaded a priest to act as a messenger for him. "He was very charming. That’s what made him dangerous.’’

He said the last real communication he’d received from Calabrese was a 19-page letter from prison. In recent years, there were just brief messages through other people. “He’d say, 'How's it going? How’s your wife?' He’d say keep an eye on his son. He didn’t want him him to get hurt."

Coconate said Calabrese was in isolation in prison, and only Calabrese's wife and his lawyer were allowed to see him about every month. “It’s pretty sad. But whatever he was, nobody should be treated like that. An animal should not be treated that way."

Coconate was in the news himself in 2005 when he was fired from his city job in Chicago. He was later reinstated after contending he was dismissed because of his frequent criticism of the Daley administration.
Calabrese's body was taken to the medical examiner's office, where it was to be examined, according to Kevin Gerity, autopsy manager for the office.

Daley’s parking meter deal is going to rap you for even more money

                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                                          
Chicago parking meters
In an annual ritual that has become as predictable if not as joyous as a New Year’s Eve countdown to midnight, Chicago drivers again will have to dig a little deeper to pay to park at meters in 2013.

Loop rates will go up 75 cents to $6.50 an hour as part of scheduled fee increases included in Mayor Richard Daley’s much-criticized 2008 lease of the city’s meters to Chicago Parking Meters LLC.

Paid street parking in neighborhoods near the Loop will rise 25 cents and reach $4 an hour. Metered spaces in the rest of Chicago also will increase by a quarter per hour, to $2, according to the company.

Come the new year, workers will begin adjusting the now-familiar pay boxes to reflect the new rates in the Loop, from there working outward into the neighborhoods, the company said in a news release Wednesday.

Chicago Parking Meters hopes to have all the meters set to the new rates by the end of February, and drivers won’t have to pay the steeper rate until the box they’re using has been changed.

This is the last of the explicitly defined yearly meter jumps included in the company’s 75-year, $1.15 billion lease. But Chicago drivers shouldn’t expect the cost of parking to level out — starting in 2014, prices can be adjusted annually using a formula tied to the rate of inflation.

Daley’s parking meter deal has become something of a political boogeyman in Chicago over the years.

Mayor Rahm Emanuel has opted to bash it, talking occasionally about the bad deal reached by his predecessor and saying he won’t simply pay up when the company hands the city invoices for lost meter revenue due to street closures and other reasons.

The city's unpaid tab for lost parking meter revenue now tops $61 million as Emanuel disputes bills the company has sent. It’s unclear how much the city will be able to knock off that total.

Some aldermen, stung by constituents’ criticism of their overwhelming support of the meter lease barely two days after Daley handed them the proposal, have called on Emanuel to give them more time to consider far-reaching deals. Still, Emanuel’s digital billboard agreement quickly sailed through the council 43-6 this month despite opponents drawing comparisons to the parking meter deal.

Most parking meters in Chicago neighborhoods cost 25 cents an hour after the City Council approved the meter lease by a 40-5 vote in December 2008.

Neighborhood meters went up to $1 an hour in January 2009 and have increased each year since, along with those downtown.

Monkey with gun kills a man in Gage Park

A 32-year-old man died after someone shot him in the face, chest and arms in the Gage Park neighborhood late Wednesday.
Federico Martinez was shot in an alley east of California Avenue just south of 54th Street about 10 p.m., according to authorities. He lived a couple houses south of where he was killed in the same block.
Someone in a light-colored Ford F150 with tinted windows shot him while he stood with a woman, police said.
Martinez was taken to Mount Sinai Hospital in critical condition but was pronounced dead there about 10:45 p.m. The man's family gathered there after he was shot.
Eight detectives arrived at the scene and began their investigation early Thursday morning, their unmarked police cars crowding the narrow block of 54th Street between California and Fairfield avenues.
A young woman wept next to red tape on the south side of the crime scene.
A spokesman for the Cook County medical examiner's office wasn't able to say whether they had been notified of the death.

Statement from the Sarge

I am the creator of what's on the sarges mind. I feel the pain of the families and parents who lost their children. Although a gun advocate I can say the system worked but the owner failed to place her guns in a better secured location knowing her son had mental health issues. As a parent who has lost a child I cry again every time a child dies it is painful and it reminds me of when my daughter was killed. You will try to forget and move on after that first year but there will always be something that will remind you. The pain will dull over time but the heartache will be with you till it is your time to join them. I do not like Obama and only voted for him once but in this video he reminds us that he to is human and a parent.

Federal Court tossed Illinois concealed carry ban






Illinois' days as the only state in the nation to forbid public possession of a firearm could be numbered after a federal appellate court threw out a state ban and gave lawmakers six months to figure out a way to let people legally carry guns.
The 2-1 ruling Tuesday by a 7th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals panel in Chicago affirmed a constitutional right to have ready-to-use firearms for self-defense outside the home.
Gun owner groups declared a historic victory, claiming leverage to limit restrictions on who can possess a weapon as negotiations on a new state law unfold. Gun control advocates acknowledged the need for a revised concealed carry law but said the court's ruling still allowed for strict limitations.
Attorney General Lisa Madigan, representing the state, said her office is studying whether to seek a rehearing, ask the full complement of 7th Circuit judges to rule or appeal to the U.S. Supreme Court, as some gun control groups have advocated. Other gun control supporters feared an unsuccessful appeal could undo firearms restrictions across the country.
As Madigan regroups, the National Rifle Association, which provided some legal muscle in the case, boasted of a victory in a state where gun control forces long have held sway.
"We went to court," said Todd Vandermyde, an NRA lobbyist. "We won. … Illinois will have a carry law by the Fourth of July. And if the mayor or the governor or anybody else doesn't like it, well, that's just too bad."
Mayor Rahm Emanuel, a strong gun control advocate, said through a spokesman that he was "disappointed with the court's decision." In March, Emanuel introduced a City Council-approved resolution opposing state legislation that would have allowed people to carry firearms in public.
The ruling also could effectively undermine part of Chicago's gun ordinance, which prohibits possession of a registered firearm outside the home. The opinion could make it legal for a Chicagoan with a registered weapon to take it outside — something now prohibited by the city, even if it's on the owner's own outdoor porch or yard.
At issue is a provision of Illinois' five-decade-old criminal code involving the unlawful use of a weapon. Under the law, it is illegal for someone to carry or possess a firearm in a vehicle or conceal one on his or her body except on the person's own land or place of business. Exemptions exist for law enforcement, licensed hunters engaged in their activity and on established target ranges.
The appellate court overturned decisions by two downstate federal judges that upheld the state law. The new ruling concluded that if Illinois' law was "demonstrably superior," then at least one other state would have adopted it.
"We are disinclined to engage in another round of historical analysis to determine whether eighteenth-century America understood the Second Amendment to include a right to bear guns outside the home. The Supreme Court has decided that the amendment confers a right to bear arms for self-defense, which is as important outside the home as inside," Judge Richard Posner wrote for the majority.
"The theoretical and empirical evidence (which overall is inconclusive) is consistent with concluding that a right to carry firearms in public may promote self-defense. Illinois had to provide us with more than merely a rational basis for believing that its uniquely sweeping ban is justified by an increase in public safety. It has failed to meet this burden," wrote Posner, a renowned legal scholar and veteran appellate judge who was appointed by President Ronald Reagan in 1981.
In the opinion, Posner wrote that "a Chicagoan is a good deal more likely to be attacked on a sidewalk in a rough neighborhood than in his apartment on the 35th floor of the Park Tower."
"A gun is a potential danger to more people if carried in public than just kept in the home," Posner wrote. "But the other side of this coin is that knowing that many law-abiding citizens are walking the streets armed may make criminals timid."
In her dissent, Judge Ann Williams said the state Legislature acted constitutionally to prohibit firearms in public.
"Guns in public expose all nearby to risk, and the risk of accidental discharge or bad aim has lethal consequences," Williams wrote. "Allowing public carry of ready-to-use guns means that risk is borne by all in Illinois, including the vast majority of its citizens who choose not to have guns."
Illinois became the last state to prohibit the carrying of concealed weapons when Wisconsin lifted its ban last year.
The ruling effectively adds a new and intense political controversy onto the plate of a General Assembly already grappling with efforts to cope with the nation's most underfunded public pension system and attempts to legalize same-sex marriage and expand gambling.
The issue of gun control has been politically vexing for decades in Springfield — defined more by geography and sometimes race rather than political party.
While support for strong gun laws generally has come from Chicago politicians, including Emanuel and his predecessor Richard M. Daley, Downstate lawmakers traditionally have backed gun-owner rights, including concealed carry legislation.

Concealed Carry

A reader of the this blog site informed us that he had spoke to a Illinois State Rep.
" I spoke with a I.S.R. infront of the 4th District Chicago Police Station and asked if he could spare 20 minutes of his time. The rep asked whats on your mind and I told him that under Illinois state law I can not carry my firearm because the law was made to over write the 22nd amendment of the state constitution but that law violates federal law and the last time I checked Federal law over rides state law. The rep. replied with well Mayor Emannual and I stopped him and said Emanual represents the City Of Chicago you represent the state of Illinois. I'll give you a taste of reallity do you see that Chicago cop down there even thou I would go through a door with him and take a bullet for him if I was caught after work with my side arm and was arrested I could legally have everything he owns for violation of my civil rights for violating my 2nd amendment rights. So just think about this if I can suite him what makes you non touchable. Don't think for one minute you can not be touched. Mary Shepard and the NRA are coming after the state but me and many others have notified the FBI of Civil rights violations by state reps., congress and governor. Sir with all do respect you can lose your home, pension, cars, guns, and college fund you have for your kids. I want you tonight to run this past your wife and kids and ask them what I told you I can almost garuntee that they will say vote yes for concealed carry that this man that you spoke with is right you represent the state and should not be listening to the mayor all he does is look out for the best intrest of the city. I also told him you took an oath to deffend and protect the constitution from both foriegn and domestic enemies it does not say you can pick and choose what amment you are for and which one you aren't you have to deffend the whole thing or get out of office. I told him that the constitution was writen so the people can control the government not the government controling the people. Now go back to Springfield and tell the idot you want concealed carry and if he vetos it you will have it over turned by a majority of the congress." This guy seemed so excited to speak to a state rep. out on the street.

Alsip Long Tradition Drops Holiday Cross Over Lawsuit Threat


 
 
A Wisconsin-based foundation threatened to sue the village over the display of a cross used in Christmas decorations. The Freedom from Religion Foundation said the village's Holiday Cross is "unconstitutional."A cross used as part of the Alsip's holiday decorations for three decades won't be put up this year, according to a letter posted on the village's website.
The letter from Mayor Patrick Kitching states a Holiday Cross decoration used annually on the West Water Tower, located on West 119th Street, won't be installed. The cross has been part of a nearly 35 year tradition for the village.
The Wisconsin-based Freedom from Religion Foundation threatened to sue the village over the symbol, the Kitching's letter states.
"I am very saddened by this and had hoped we would not have to change tradition," Kitching states in the letter. "However in these economic times, the village cannot afford to waste any tax dollars on a lawsuit that simply cannot be won."
A staff attorney from the Freedom from Religion Foundation wrote the Alsip in December 2011, objecting to a display of a cross on village property. By putting up a Latin cross, Alsip is demonstrating a preference for Christianity over other religions, the organization argues.
The "fundamental principle" of the Establishment Clause in the First Amendment, says the government can't "advance, promote or endorse religion," the foundation's letter states. Displaying the cross demonstrates "government endorsements of Christianity, a blatant violation of the Establishment Clause."
The letter cites cases brought against other municipalities where federal courts supported the idea that a Christian cross is a religious symbol, according to the foundation's letter. It mentions bringing a lawsuit against the Town of Whiteville, Tenn., over a similar matter.
"No court of final resort has ever upheld the government's permanent display of a Christian cross on public land as constitutional," the letter states.
Alsip chose, instead, not to "waste taxpayer dollars to fight a losing battle in court," according to the village's letter.


Dear Alsip Residents and Business Community,

A tradition for almost 35 years here in the Village of Alsip is coming to an end. You will notice this year our holiday decoration on the West Water Tower (Holiday Cross) will not be erected nor lit. We have an organization out of Wisconsin, Freedom from Religion Foundation, who is threatening a lawsuit for having a holiday symbol that can be construed as a religious decoration. It is considered to be unconstitutional. Other municipalities have been brought to suit regarding this very same issue and have lost. We have chosen not to waste taxpayer dollars to fight a losing battle in court. The holiday cross will be replaced with a different holiday decoration in the future, however, I am not sure this process can be completed in time for Christmas of 2012.

I am very saddened by this and had hoped we would not have to change tradition, however in these economic times, the Village cannot afford to waste any tax dollars on a lawsuit that simply cannot be won.

Thank you for your understanding.

Have the happiest of holidays.

Sincerely,

Patrick E. Kitching

Mayor

2012 Letter from Freedom from Religion

Deffenceless Doctor was stabbed by a homeless Animal


Lincoln Park zoo Official's stated that their one of a kind savage animal's escaped and is unsure were he went. The zoo provided this picture.

At 7: 50PM the zoo's animal was spotted going in to the Westin Hotel. The animal then went into a bathroom and pulled a knife out on a 67 year old doctor after the doctor refused to give him anything the animal stabbed him repeatedly. Had the doctor had a firearm on him the doctor could have deffended himself and a hotel employee would have not had his chest cut open while trying to chase the offender. Police later caught this animal and placed him in the Cook County zoo at 26th and California while the animal is being charged with one count of attempted first-degree murder, two counts of aggravated battery with intent to do great bodily harm and one count of aggravated unlawful restraint.
The charges stem from an attempted robbery Saturday evening in which a 67-year-old man was stabbed in the neck Saturday evening near the front of the Westin Hotel. All this doctor wanted to do was go with his family and friends to dinner and to watch the parade but in stead he was held up and stabbed. 

The incident began shortly before 8 p.m. when the 67-year-old man was stabbed during an attempted robbery, Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Amina Greer said, citing preliminary information.
A 35-year-old man was cut in the chest as he tried to capture the assailant, Greer said.

Police took Harris into custody following the incident. A weapon was also recovered, Greer said.

The 67-year-old was taken to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where his condition was stabilized, Greer said. The 35-year-old was taken to Northwestern in good condition.

According to the niece of the 67-year-old man, Jameela Ali, 28, of Lincoln Park, she and her uncle were part of a group of seven dining in a restaurant inside the Westin when her uncle was attacked inside a bathroom. She first heard a commotion inside the bathroom, then saw her uncle, badly injured, struggling with another man outside the bathroom.

"His left eye was bruised, totally swollen shut," Ali said. "There was blood gushing from his neck, blood all over his clothes. He looked like he had been punched in the face several times. I started screaming. I didn't know what to do."

Ali's uncle remained at Northwestern as of 1:30 am. Ali said he suffered a laceration to his external jugular vein and received exploratory surgery to ensure there was no further damage.

By 8:30 p.m., crime scene tape surrounded the entrance to the Westin Hotel on Delaware Street and Michigan Avenue with patches of blood visible on the pavement, and two police cars blocked the street.

Managers at the Westin declined to comment late Saturday and early Sunday.

Olivia Morrow, 18, said she and her friend were returning to the hotel around 8 p.m. to meet their parents when they saw police on the scene.

Morrow said shortly after that she saw about five hotel officials running out of the building toward the stairs leading to the Hancock Tower and the neighboring The Cheesecake Factory Restaurant.

"They had radios and phones in their hands, saying that (the attacker) was last seen running down the stairs," Morrow said.

Genevieve Waldron of Michigan City, Ind., was among the crowd waiting for a table outside when she and her mother saw dozens of officers sprinting toward the restaurant from every direction.

"They were obviously looking for somebody and we were trying to stay out of the way," Waldron said.

A few minutes later, two officers came back up the stairs, flanking a man who was handcuffed, and loaded him into the back of a marked car.

Neither The Cheesecake Factory nor the hotel were evacuated, as guests on the south-facing side of the building peered out of the windows to get a view of the scene. There appeared to be little commotion at the restaurant, where diners poured out into the hallways waiting for a table.

Investigating Obama for the Murder of Chris Stevens


While under going a FBI investigation the former CIA Director David Petraeus will testify Thursday about the attack on the U.S. diplomatic mission in Benghazi before the Senate Intelligence Committee, a veteran senator confirmed to NBC News Wednesday. The Thursday hearing will be the first formal congressional inquiry into the September attack that killed U.S. Ambassador in Libya Chris Stevens.
Washington has reeled from Petraeus's shock resignation last week when it was revealed he had an affair with a married military reservist and author of a fawning biography of the general, who is also married.
Despite that scandal, lawmakers see Petraeus as potentially vital to their probe into exactly what happened in Benghazi on September 11 when four Americans were killed including the US ambassador to Libya, Christopher Stevens.
Republican and Democratic senators on Tuesday called for scandal-plagued CIA ex-director David Petraeus to testify about the deadly September 11 attack on the US mission in Benghazi, Libya.

"I believe he will (testify). I think he's a responsible person, and I believe he will come," Democrat Dianne Feinstein, chair of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence


Secretary of State Hillary Rodham Clinton  two months after Stevens and three other Americans were killed in an attack on the U.S. consulate in Benghazi. Will have to testify even if she does resign her position.






Sen. John McCain hit the Obama administration hard for its early response to the attacks on the U.S. mission in Libya two months ago. John McCain even stated he wants all who are involved in ignoring the warnings in a pair of cuffs and behind bars for not moving forward to protect the country and its embassey's. McCain even stated " If this inquary shows Obama is guilty of not lifting a fingure I will be the first to sign the paper to impeach the president. In fact I would like for him to be summoned to a hearing to explain himself."

Violent Crime Illinois

Our research department found some very exciting news. We checked the high crime cities such as Miami, NY, Detriot, Greenbay, Milwaukee, Chicago, Gary, Indianapolis, Hammond, LA, LV, Dallas, Huston; this what we found out.

Detriot before Concealed carry Murder rate in 1,009
Detriot after Concealed carry 713
Detriot stated that it's Gang on Gang now then inocent people

Miami' Homicide From 1960 to 2000, the homicide rate was 10.6 per 100,000 population. From 2000 to 2010 Homicides droped to 5.6 per 100,000 population. In 2011 another spate of gang related violence, particularly around Miami, resulted in a small uptick in the homicide rates. An uptick that was quickly squelched by Florida’s Castle Doctrine and Stand your ground laws. Now Homicide is down to 2.3 per 100,000 population

LA, Cali.
Homicide from 1972 to 2000 was 89.6 per 100,000 population
After the State of California passed Concealed carry with the Castle Doctrine Homicide is now gang on gang and down to 7.6 per 100,000 population

Chicago nor the state of Illinois has yet caught on. They raise tax on fire arms and ammunition thier anti gun policy is not working since there
1990: 851, 1991: 927, 1992: 943, 1993: 855, 1994: 931, 1995: 828, 1996: 796, 1997: 761, 1998: 704, 1999: 643, 2000: 633, 2001: 667, 2002: 656, 2003: 601, 2004: 453, 2005: 451, 2006: 471, 2007: 448, 2008: 513, 2009: 459, 2010: 436, 2011: 433, 2012: 450(to date)
Chicago has 2,833,649 population
Buffalo has 265,128 Population
NY has 8,336,002 Population
Mami has 440,482 Population
Dallas Has 1,306,775 Population



All but Illinois passed cocealed carry. All but Illinois dropped their homicide rate down to 10.0 or less after passing concealed carry.  Illinois wants to start a prohibition on firearms and if it did not work with alcohol what makes them think it will work with guns. Illinois needs to wake the fuck up all your doing is hurting the lawabiding person. To say guns kill people is like saying Camera's cause child porn or to say food makes people fat. Why is it Illinois politicians can enjoy the fundimental of the 22nd Amendment of the Illinois state constitution and the 2nd amendment but denies the right to the people. The law clearly states the right shall not be infringed. 



Illinois day of exicution Tuesday, November 4, 2014
This is when we will vote the following out of office.

Republican Joe Walsh
Republican Kirk Dillard
Republican Dan Ruthaford
Republican Bill Brady
Liberal Matthew Murphy
Liberal Bruce Brauner

The puppeteer who performs as Elmo on "Sesame Street" is taking a leave of absence from the popular kids' show in the wake of allegations that he had a relationship with a 16-year-old boy.
Sesame Workshop said puppeteer Kevin Clash denies the charges, which were first made in June by the alleged partner, who by then was 23.
"We took the allegation very seriously and took immediate action," Sesame Workshop said in a statement issued Monday. "We met with the accuser twice and had repeated communications with him. We met with Kevin, who denied the accusation

City crys broke my back end

The mayor claims he has no money to higher police officer's. The FOP Lodge 7 states that with officer's retiring and officer's being promoted the city is short 2,000 cops. So Mayor dumbass closes 4 districts and leaving 3 areas open trying to represent we don't need police but in light of everything Mayor dumbass has money for new CTA project hmmmmmmmmmmm.  scaled-back version of an express commuting service called bus rapid transit is scheduled to debut Monday between the Loop and the South Side.
The Jeffery Jump will operate on the No. 14 Jeffery Express route, which travels between 103rd Street and Stony Island Avenue, and Washington and Jefferson streets downtown. The double-long Jeffery Jump buses will be wrapped in blue to give the service a distinctive appearance, officials said.

From 7-9 a.m. and 4-6 p.m., No. 14 Jeffery Jump buses will use bus-only lanes on part of the route, between 67th and 83rd streets, cutting the travel time by up to seven minutes from one end of the route to the other, transit officials said.

Regular fares will apply. Bus stops will be located every half-mile on average between 67th and 103rd streets to speed up the trips, officials said.

But the new service is being launched Monday without key elements that constitute true bus rapid transit, officials said. The missing components include full-time bus-only lanes; traffic signals linked to the buses to extend green lights for them; passenger prepaid boarding at bus stops equipped with platforms that are level with the bus floor; and bus stops in the median, instead of at the curb.

Early next year, the CTA and the Chicago Department of Transportation will expand the Jeffery Jump bus rapid transit experiment to provide extended green lights for buses between 73rd and 84th streets, officials said. In addition, a bypass lane will open at Jeffery Boulevard and Anthony Avenue to allow buses to advance through the intersection ahead of other traffic, officials said.

The CTA and CDOT are completing plans for more robust bus rapid transit service on Ashland and Western avenues, between Howard and 95th streets when funding becomes available; and in the central Loop in 2014. Long-term plans envision a 50-mile bus rapid transit network, increasing average bus speeds by as much as 48 percent over regular bus routes, officials said.

Remembering one of Chicago's Finest

 
Capt. Herbert Johnson, a 32-year veteran of the Chicago Fire Department, died Friday night fighting a South Side blaze.
Family of fallen firefighter Capt. Herbert Johnson spoke publicly this afternoon, the day after his death fighting an extra-alarm blaze in Gage Park.

"He was always a hero to us, now he's a hero for our city," said brother-in-law Dan McMahon, standing outside the medical examiner's office surrounded by Johnson's widow and children.

McMahon said the 32-year veteran firefighter, promoted to captain just months ago, was doing what he loved. Johnson never wanted notoriety, rather he sought only to make Chicago safer.

In honor of Johnson, McMahon asked residents to make sure the smoke alarms in their homes are working, and to "give your kids a hug."
While McMahon spoke, about 15 friends and family stood with him, many with arms linked and some softly crying.
Friends and family remembered Johnson as a fun-loving guy who would try anything, including taking a sewing class because he wanted to sew his daughter’s first communion dress.

“He was in it with all these old ladies,” said Dan Burke, another brother-in-law.

Brother John Johnson said their own father made his brother a pair of crocheted boots when he was only a baby, and so Johnson took up the same idea when he was a father.

“You've got to know the Johnsons,” John Johnson said. “They’ll try anything, nothing will stop them, and they’re not afraid of anything.”

Herbert Johnson and his sister Julie even went to clown school together at one time.

“He didn’t care,” John said. “He would have tried anything.”

Their father worked for the city in the Streets and Sanitation Department, John Johnson said, and their grandfathers were Chicago police officers.

John Johnson said his brother always knew he wanted to be a firefighter.

The Obama Administration Response To Hurricane Sandy is Appalling

Washington, DC—The Obama Administration has been mired in preparations and protocol for interning millions of American under the NDAA and other outrageous programs. Dealing with a natural disaster was obviously just not a priority.
The Obama Administration had a week’s warning and could have begun assembling massive amounts of drinking water, food and fuel for swift movement to any affected areas.
Nothing began until well over eight million people had no power, drinking water, food, prescription drugs or communication from the outside world. Only then were efforts made to locate and distribute emergency provisions. Unforgivably and incredibly it was all too little and too late. Click here for Full Story

12 Year Old Little White Girl Autumn Pasquale Tortured & Murdered By BLACK BROTHERS Justin Davidson & Dante Robinson for parts off her BMX Bicycle

 
A New Jersey mom ratted out her teen sons for the murder of a 12-year-old girl after reading a Facebook posting hinting that one of them wanted to go on the lam, law-enforcement sources told The Post.
Justin Davidson’s mom saw his message “Might be moving :( ” on Sunday and became suspicious.
She tipped cops that he might have been involved in the disappearance of their neighbor, Autumn Pasquale, in Clayton, NJ, the sources said.
Autumn was allegedly lured to meet Justin, 15, and his brother Dante Robinson, 17, at their home Saturday because they wanted parts from her beloved BMX bike.
The massive search for Autumn came to a tragic end Monday night when her body was found stuffed in a recycling bin at a vacant property near the boys’ house.
An autopsy found she had been strangled.
As family and friends held out hope that Autumn would be found alive, Justin communicated with her brother on Facebook to say he was glad police were using dogs in the search, NBC Philadelphia reported.
The two brothers were charged with murder, body disposal and tampering with evidence. Justin was also charged with luring.
When detectives searched the Robinson home, they found some of Autumn’s belongings and her bike, Gloucester County Prosecutor Sean Dalton said.
The boys’ father, Alonzo Robinson, told the Star-Ledger of Newark that his sons had been charged with bike theft before.
“I think someone wanted the girl’s bicycle,” Robinson said. “Maybe she wanted her bike and resisted, and one of them snatched her off a bike.”
The girl loved BMX bikes and famous riders, her Facebook page said.

Rantoul police violate civil rights and do not up hold laws

This is what our investigator emailed the police and village officials.



Hello Chief:
I received a call to our tip line at 1800 hours about two subjects who slashed tires to a vehicle at 323 N. Sheldon in the town of Rantoul. The incident occurred at about 1720-1730 hours on 31 Oct 12.
Officer Thane Jackson arrived on scene and while on scene herd verbal threats being made to the victim. Now under the 720 ILCS 5 12-2 an assault occurs when another persons commits the act by verbally threatening another. Your officer failed to do his job by making an arrest and charging them with assault. I also under stand that a supervisor was called by the victims oldest son. Sgt. Morgan arrived on scene to try to resolve the issue which to our understanding is not resolved. Both stated to the victim that it is a civil matter. So my questions are as follows.

1. Is it the police department's protocol to take the lazy way out of the job by telling the victim it is a civil matter?
2. Is it customary for the department to always get a callers name even when they want remain anonymous to force a caller to give his or her name or they get hung up on ?
3. Is it customary for your officer's to act in a matter as to be considered unprofessional?
4. Is it customary to ignore the persons with disabilities law when a crime has been committed against a disabled person?
5. Is it customary to ignore charges and not make arrest when the victim is willing to sign complaints?
6. is everything with your department a civil matter because the officer doesn't want to do paper work?
7 Wasn't your department investigated in 2005 by the FBI for violating civil rights?
8. Wasn't the investigation unfounded because your officer's covered up the police brutality by Officer Amy Milk?



9. Why do your residence who cry for help are not getting the service they pay for through tax dollars?
10. Why is it your residence are asked to help your department but when they cry for help your department shows up with the I don't care attitude?


As a Chicago base media blogist I hear for Chicago Police who make arrest on stuff like this.


 

 The village of Rantoul and it's police department have not commited so here is what we found out.
Fact the Rantoul Police refuse to enforce the child visitation law calling it a civil matter when the ILCS clearly declairs it a criminal act. The Rantoul Police also refuse to arrest anyone for criminal trespass unless they issue a barment or it is village property. They classify it as a civil matter along with assault. This is the only town that you can assault someone and not go to jail it is amazing.

Fact in the summer of 2005 a residence house burned while him and his wife were not at home looking at the time realized their two teenage children may be in the house. He approached Police Officer Amy Milk of the Rantoul Police who first on scene and told her he has reason to believe his kids are in the house. According to the FBI complaint Officer Milk slammed the man to the ground kicked him repeatedly to the point the department had to arrest him and charge him with something. According to the Champaign County Sheriff's intake report the man was denied entry to the jail and was taken to Carle Hospital. According to the FBI report when they investigated the civil rights complaint they found nothing even the camera that was pointed on the complainant was turned off befor Officer Amy Milk started to beat her prisoner. To date according to the residence of the town Officer Amy Milk was fired from Rantoul Police.

Fact on Holloween we recieved a complaint about the conduct of this department and they refused to answer us and our questions. So I suggest that anyone traveling South on I 57 never stop in this town. Do not buy anything from this town Drive right threw it like it is not even on the map. If your from Chicago and you have a crime commited against you better believe your going to jail just turn around and put your hands behind your back and kiss Julia Rietz's ass.

Real cops doing real work

In some parts of Cook County police officer's deal with the same type of crime like the real cop do in the City of Chicago. This makes any Chicago police officer the badest mother fucker on the force.
Out side Cook County they could only wish they had the tools that Chicago has and the capability they have. In central Illinois in Champaign county Rantoul police arrest anyone that is from Chicago and the States Attorney kicks you out of her county or lies to place you in jail. If you agree to leave the county the charges are dismissed. The cops refer to CRIMINAL Damage to property or Trespassing as a civil matter and then they give you a police notice not to appear. Our Chief investigator is currently looking at this and will be posting on Friday his findings. But we wanted to touch a little bit on this to try to get our readers to chime in on their thoughts. Under the Illinois Criminal code all you have to do is tell a person to leave your property one time or they can be arrested for trespass. I know many security and police officer's who lock up, charge and get convictions on a trespass charge. In Champaign County well we don't know for sure we can speculate that they don't and call it a civil matter. If someone threats to commit battery is classified as assault which any where in Illinois you can be arrested for. In Champaign County well we go right back to that same thing ( under investigation ). In the entire state if you are classified as elderly and your disabled under the law you can be charged with what ever crime was commited on the person who is classified as such. In Illinois if your classified as adisabled or elderly or both and someone threatens you or assaults you, you have legal justification to pull a side arm if the person starts walking like he or she will make good on the assault then you can shoot and kill him. In Champaign County they arrest you put you in jail for a period longer than mandated by the United States Constitution the have a jury trial that takes for ever to start knowing it will violate the right to a fair and speedy trial. In The peopl of Champaign County, Illinois Vs. Sean Dale,was convicted early Friday in Champaign County Common Pleas Court on one count each of felonious assault, having weapons while intoxicated and possession of marijuana. The assault charge was second-degree felony, while the other two charges were misdemeanors.Now court records show that Sean was on pain medications not liquor. State records show Sean was Disabled. Sean has always owned a firearm. Well his buddy came over and started threatening him and when the man started walking toward Sean he felt threatened and shot the man dead.

Chicago has it 440 homicides with only two months remainning. that is half of the vehicle death rate in Illinois which is 880 deaths by vehicle. So keep reading as we inform you what we find out on the Rantoul Police Department.

Emanual marries Quinn in a ammunition tax called violance tax





GOVERNOR QUINN TEAMS UP WITH MAYOR RAHM EMANUEL TO PROPOSE BILL TO TAX AND BAN YOUR GUNS

YOUR IMMEDIATE ACTION REQUIRED
As many of you know, Illinois Governor Pat Quinn today utilized his amendatory veto authority to hijack a pro-gun bill and convert it into a ban on so called assault weapons. Quinn claims that his bill would "...make Illinois a safer place."

Of course, lawful Illinois firearm owners know better. We know that Quinn's true aim is to obliterate private firearm ownership in the state. Closer analysis of Quinn's bill reveals a host of opportunities for Quinn and his buddy Emanuel to make life miserable for the state's lawful firearm owners.

Here is just a partial list of what this bill would do, if passed:

1. Ban the manufacture, possession or sale of nearly every semiautomatic rifle, pistol and shotgun you own.

2. Specifically ban Glock pistols since they share a common design with the Glock 18, a select fire handgun.

3. Require you to register every semiautomatic firearm and every magazine you own that exceeds 10 round capacity. The kicker is that, under Quinn's proposal, the State Police can charge you unlimited fees to register your guns. Thus if Quinn's bill passes, you could very well find yourself paying $100 or even $1,000 per firearm per year to comply with the law. Additionally, you could find yourself paying $50, $100 or even $500 per year for each "high capacity" magazine you own. Can't pay? Well then you would have to surrender your guns to the State Police for destruction.

This is just a taste of what you could expect from Quinn's gun ban. Twists and turns in the bill would certainly open up the doors to taxation, regulation, and outright bans on every civilian owned firearm in the state.

Oh, and one thing is for sure, you can forget about concealed carry if Quinn's gun ban passes. ...
