RJ Vanecko Case Reeked To High Heaven

RJ Vanecko Case Reeked To High Heaven
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...

More Laws Less Jail Space

More Laws Less Jail Space
This inane need for politicians to add laws on top of more laws has always puzzled me. Especially in these hard economic times when many of the same politicians must resort to emptying over-crowded jails. And still the trend of more laws less jail space continues. And that, in my mind, can only mean one... Read more »

Target Is Not Giving Us The Full Poop On The Breach

Target Is Not Giving Us The Full Poop On The Breach
As longtime Target customers my wife and I are more than dismayed at the ease at which hackers were able to breach its entire Point of Service (POS) operation especially given the fact that there was no way an add-on device could have been attached to every single card reader at the checkout. So let’s... Read more »

Black Friday: Robbery, Shots Fired - Is The Store Still Open?

Black Friday: Robbery, Shots Fired - Is The Store Still Open?
Black Friday and its absurdity began in earnest on Thanksgiving this year. So absurd that my title Black Friday: Robbery, Shots Fired – Is The Store Still Open? could nearly sum up all that needs to be said about the official start of the holiday shopping season. People want their deals and are blind to... Read more »

What's Up With Sealing The RJ Vanecko Files?

What's Up With Sealing The RJ Vanecko Files?
I Think the people are entitled to know – What’s Up With Sealing The RJ Vanecko Files? From the get go it seems as if everyone and their political mother’s have been trying to protect Richard RJ Vanecko, the nephew of former Chicago Mayor Richard M. Daley. And from everything that has been published to... Read more »

Illinois Passes Cigarette Butt Law

Illinois Passes Cigarette Butt Law
I should have guessed that before former Chicago Alderman Richard “Dick” Mell engineered his blatant act of Chicago Nepotism that his Uber Liberal daughter Deborah Mell would sponsor a bill (HB3243) that will ultimately be largely ignored by law enforcement, except maybe by Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel. As for the rest of the state’s law... Read more »

No Serious Gun Debate Until Gang-bangers And Political Corruption Eliminated

No Serious Gun Debate Until Gang-bangers And Political Corruption Eliminated
Anti-Gun liberals like Chicago Mayor Rahm Emanuel want to take away guns from law-abiding citizens yet offer no hope in furthering the gun debate because of his administration’s inability to control gang bangers and their illegal access to them. It makes no sense to strip citizens of their right to protect themselves until you can... Read more »

Chicago Shame: Daley Family Clout Nearly Suppresses An Indictment But Shouldn't There Be More?

Chicago and the Daley's are synonymous. The two would serve a combined 43 years as Mayor of Chicago (21 and 22 years respectively) amid controversy and accusations of political corruption and nepotism. And now, it seems as though some privileged relatives of Chicago's most powerful family are in a world of trouble and despite the best efforts by some members of the Chicago Police Department and Cook County's State's Attorney's Office from letting this become a  legitimate criminal case. A Cook Judge, though, has decided there is more than evidence that the case has been "mishandled" and this case bears a "close watch by all residents of Chicago."
I have probably written more posts regarding the deadly encounter between Richard “RJ” Vanecko and David Koschman than any other particular subject. The reason for this is not because I want to see the Daley’s get their just rewards – it is simply a matter of standing up for what is right and what is... Read more »

Illinois Legislature: Pension System Gaming Is Absolutely Criminal

Illinois Legislature: Pension System Gaming Is Absolutely Criminal
The Illinois Legislature has been the driving force behind the state’s financial collapse. Ironically, the people of Illinois have stood largely silent and have continuously reelected lawmakers that have displayed little or no concern for representing their constituencies versus lining their own pockets. The Chicago Tribune has put together an eye-popping investigative series on Illinois... Read more »

Judge Michael Toomin: Another Political Pawn or Will He Do The Right Thing?

Judge Michael Toomin: Another Political Pawn or Will He Do The Right Thing?
The Chicago Machine may not be the dynamo it once was. But don’t kid yourselves – its influence is still very much alive in the fabric of Illinois Politics. As a matter of fact, the Machine has done very well in the fifty plus years I have followed it and no doubt will continue to... Read more »
