I have written extensively about why I felt the RJ Vanecko Case involved official misconduct and/or malfeasance by the Cook County State's Attorney's Office and that the Chicago Police Department engaged in perpetrating a coverup in order to protect the Daley Family name in the minutes and hours after Richard "RJ" Vanecko fatally struck David Koschman. And while I am relieved that RJ Vanecko has finally been brought to justice and rightly convicted of involuntary manslaughter, it was done only after he accepted a plea deal that amounts to a slap on his wrist. Still, I am happy that the Honorable Judge Michael P. Toomin permitted the release of a report prepared by Special Prosecutor James K. Webb and feel the thousands of words written by me affirm my contention that the actions of Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez and the Chicago Police Department was part and parcel to why the RJ Vanecko Case Reeked to High Heaven.
That is also why I will also continue to call for Cook County State's Attorney Anita Alvarez to resign! And if she doesn't? Well then it will be incumbent upon the voters of Cook County to ensure that she is no longer elected to an office that represents their interests. I will also go so far as to say that if the voters choose not to do so - then they do so at their own peril because next time it could be them or a family member that will feel the over zealousness of an State's Attorney's Office that has long had a long history of employing a double standard when it comes to the prosecution of the average citizen versus that of political clout.
Sadly people tend to forget that the Cook County State's Attorney's Office has routinely declined to file charges in order to protect those in official capacities. Well at least until enough publicity forces them to either go through the motions or actually act. But I have to question why the good people of Chicago would accept this sort of thing or why these same people seem to think it normal when the City of Chicago and/or Cook County must hit up the taxpayers to pay for the monetary damages as a result of lawsuits filed by victims of official abuse?
But I am going to call an ace an ace here: being ignorant to this thing called "business as usual," "pay to play" or any other continued bad acts committed by our elected officials and public employees is totally unacceptable in this, or any, society! And while we are at it let's come to another realization shall we? Career Illinois Politicians are neither friend nor compassionate when it comes to the protecting of rights and liberties of the Average Joe and Josephine.
Let's face it, when it comes to politics in Chicago, Cook County, and in the rest of the State of Illinois, what our career politicians give us is one fricking game after another. But you know sometimes those games become downright dangerous for the people to whom they were sworn to protect.
Enough is enough is enough already! Unless, of course, it does not bother you that our elected officials have systematically, and quietly, stripped us of certain basic rights and liberties while we weren't watching.Think I am kidding? Well then you haven't really been paying attention! The killing and subsequent suppression of the facts surrounding David Koschman's death at the hands of Richard "RJ" Vanecko was just another prime example of how far those in power and authority would go to protect the status quo.
Luckily the Chicago Sun-Times did not hide or cower when it became apparent to them what was going on in the RJ Vanecko Case. They diligently stuck with the story and continued to dig deep until we all had a much clearer picture of what power protecting power looks like. And I have to commend them for that because Chicago Media have long tried to pick and choose what was printed, especially about the Daley Family.
Hopefully, the events that compelled Daley Loyalists to enter protection mode will finally lay to rest the notion that the Daley Mystique is not what it has appeared to be. Hey I get it, people here want more than anything to believe that the Daley name and Chicago are not only synonymous but that that family members possess the stuff heroes are made of.
Well okay, I can go along with the fact that the Daley's are synonymous with the City of Chicago - but I wouldn't call them heroes.
Neither would I say that about those protecting that myth!
