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.

Back the Bid for Chicago ’16 Summer Olympics…NOT!

Now that we are close to an Olympic Committee decision on who would get to host the 2016 Olympics, the City of Chicago under the Mayor Daley regime with its cohorts of business men include Pat Ryan, former Aon executive who stands to profit substantially on the backs of taxpayers are pumping and pimping the benefits of hosting supported by local celebrities and media including President Obama.

While Cook County which Chicago is located in, continues to suffer the second highest unemployment of the major three cities (Los Angeles being the highest and New York being the lowest) in this recession, one has to ask how will three weeks of Olympic activity and $2-4 billion later in expenditures build long term benefits for its citizens in terms of creating sustainable jobs, increasing education for its labor force or increasing efficiency of tax dollars?  Will Chicago suddenly be competitive in the global economy because it is the host for 3 weeks to athletes competing for gold?  Will Chicago solve the wealth inequity between the wealthiest top 10% versus everyone else?

So far, the Daley administration, the Chicago City Council of 50 aldermans and the sycophants that line up out the door of Chicago City Hall have nothing but false promises to defend their bid that supposedly will bring “wealth” to the city and that taxpayers money would not be used but what are local governments using but local taxpayers money?  If you believe that I have a baby Lochness Monster I’m raising in Lake Michigan to show you but I would have to charge admission.

Citizens of Chicago are sheeps and the Daley political machine is fleecing Chicagoans for every nickel meanwhile serious issues continue to plague the City of Chicago under Mayor Daley.

Citigroup Three Card Monty Policy on Executive Compensation

One would think that under the Obama administration of “greater transparency and accountability” that the 36% government owned Citigroup would wise up to the fact taxpayers are no longer tolerating huge compensations for, well absolutely nothing in return for shareholders but massive risk taking and losses.
Today, the NY Times reported that many of the bailed out banks who have received and continue to possess taxpayers’ money are looking for ways to divert previous “bonus” money to their base salaries.  No matter how they funnel money into the pockets of Wall St fat cats, they are simply raping their shareholders and taxing people who struggle to keep their jobs, their homes and pay their taxes.
Then why wouldn’t President Obama, Treasury Secretary Geithner, Senator Dodd and Congressperson Barney Frank do something about?
Even at the behest of taxpayers not to bailout failed businesses, the previous and current administration also failed to elect directors to the board of Citigroup!  How can that be?  36% shareholder and no representation on the Board of Directors.
Say what?
Doing a little research, you can easily detect the international political underpinnings to Citigroup.  Citigroup is made up of large concentration of foreign investors, mainly Middle East and Far East money.  A royal Saudi prince is the single largest shareholder as well as other various investment groups in the Middle East and Singapore.
So it is this writer’s opinion that because of the money ties to the Middle East, the current administration have no issue in bailing these people out with taxpayers’ money and at the same time, let them decide what to do with that money, even if it means it never makes it back to the taxpayers with interest.

One would think that under the Obama administration of “greater transparency and accountability” that the 36% government owned Citigroup’s Board and senior executives would wise up to the fact taxpayers are no longer tolerating huge compensations for, well absolutely nothing in return for shareholders but massive risk taking and losses.  Wrong!

Then why wouldn’t President Obama, Treasury Secretary Geithner, Congressional leaders such as Dodd and Frank do something about it given the tough rhetoric during campaigning?

So it is this writer’s opinion that because of the money ties to the Middle East, the current Obama administration has no qualms in bailing these foreign investors out of failed Citigroup with taxpayers’ money but simultaneously let Citigroup decide what to do with that money, even if it means taxpayers’ money never making it back to the taxpayers with interest.

How’s that for fiduciary responsibility post Madoff and Stanford?
