City establishes $5.5 million fund for Burge torture victims | Chicago

Okay! GREAT! They DESERVE it even though no amount of money is going to give them back all that they lost.

My question is, the City of Chicago is in a serious DEFICIT! Where is the money coming from? Brian Brock​ said the money will undoubtedly come from PROPERTY TAXES. So then what HAD that money been originally allocated for that now isn't going to happen because those funds are being used to satisfy a debt that BURGE AND HIS CRONIES should be paying?

Also, IS THIS HUSH MONEY! The tortures took place under Burges watch, but, there were others directly involved and doing the actual torturing. Has that LIST of individuals been revealed or is it a taboo subject because we might have current elected officials who were more HANDS ON with the torturing than they would like the public to know? Was Burge the only individual to pay the price for this HEINOUS crime and mischaracter of justice? Will he take the list of other participants with him to his grave or now that he's been released from prison, is this JUST THE START of a new chapter in the Chicago Political Corruption ongoing saga...

"THE CORRUPT AND THE DEFENSELESS"

STAY TUNED!

I feel like Arsenio Hall, this is something to think about, the type of stuff that makes you go, "Hmmm!"

A message to Mayor Rahm Emanuel and 20th Ward Alderman, Willie Cochran!

A message to Mayor Rahm Emanuel and 20th Ward Alderman, Willie Cochran:

On Tuesday, April 7, 2015...

250,773 (44.3%) of the City of Chicago voters said, "FIRE RAHM EMANUEL!"

3,267 (44.5%) of the 20th Ward residents said, "YOU GOTTA GO, COCHRAN!"

While you both are kicking back and celebrating your "victories" you would be smart not to dismiss what those voters were communicating to you through their votes.

While you both are kicking back and celebrating your "victories" you would be smart not to dismiss what those voters were communicating to you through their votes.

Rahm, you made history being the first Chicago Mayor to be FORCED INTO A RUNOFF ELECTION.

Willie, you are only in your 3rd Term in office and have already been FORCED INTO RUNOFF ELECTIONS TWICE!

Both of you, Rahm Emanuel and Willie Cochran, will be UNDER A MAGNIFYING GLASS for the next four (4) years. Everything you do and don't do will be made TRANSPARENT to the residents of the City of Chicago and the 20th Ward.

***SEE YOU BOTH IN 2019***

Jesus "Chuy" Garcia 250,773 44.3%

Willie B. Cochran 4,079 55.5%
Kevin Bailey 3,267 44.5%

  • Willie knows it's his last rodeo because he will be gentrified out of the 20th ward come 2019. So he will do only things that will leave his name as a legacy.

  • Jeff Janulis CAPS Rep

    Sore losers.....

  • SW

    I agree with Jeff, sore losers. Interesting that Michele touts "fire Rahm" rather than being for Chuy, which says that one is not so much for Chuy and what he stands for but more interest in getting Rahm out. Hmmmm....

    So, black people in Chicago voted to support Rahm Emanuel for a second term!

    I live in the 3rd ward, where both political adversaries Alderman Pat Dowell and former Alderman Dorothy Tillman campaigned and supported the re-election of Rahm Emanuel.

    What is the 3rd Ward economic empowerment agenda of Mayor Rahm Emanuel, for the underemployed and under served lower and moderate income residents currently living in subsidized housing developments in the 3rd ward?

    We already know that they will need to learn how to play tennis, indoor baseball and squash!!!!
