Law Enforcement Good...

torture bad!

Alleged torture by police is now a Fitz matter

"After years of listening to calls for a federal investigation into the Chicago police torture scandal that allegedly ran from the 1970s into the early 1990s, U.S. Atty. Patrick Fitzgerald announced Wednesday that his office is engaged in a criminal investigation of the matter.

Without using the names of former Chicago Police Cmdr. Jon Burge or the detectives who worked under him, Fitzgerald said his office would look into whether any of the officers lied under oath or obstructed justice as part of the civil litigation resulting from allegations that police tortured dozens of suspects."

"We're not going to prejudge what will happen," Fitzgerald said at a news conference called to announce an unrelated arrest. "We're not going to predict whether there will be charges or anything beyond that, but we do want to make clear that we're very, very serious about this investigation." <more>

"Chicago police have been haunted for decades by allegations that detectives at a South Side violent crimes unit dunked suspects in water, beat them and subjected them to electric shocks to wring out confessions."

So what's new! Beating cons, rape, pedophiles rings, back handers. Their is scandle with any position of power from the top down in government and authorities.

Look at lawrence King, drugs, fraud and a pedophile ring right in the heart of American goverment. Can't beleive you wave that flag with such faith." (gee, maybe a victim?)

[February 1989 -...SNIP...Defendant Burge is represented by private lawyers, paid for by the city government. One of Burge’s defense attorneys is the former First AssistantState’s Attorney Richard Devine.]

Is this why Devine says that he's leaving politics, in order to make more money to raise his family?

His children are all grown, married with children,

Is Devine planning to 'earn more money' so that he can help pay for his grandchildren's needs?

No, celest aida, My name is Sarah Jean because on the other side of my family Great Uncle Bobby was sitting in the front row in the Korean war. He was a frontman- millitary people will understand what that means. He later died suspiciously when he came back to base. I can't divulge anymore. I know too much. take care celeste aida, oh THANK YOU ALDERMAN THAT HELPED THANK YOU! GOD BLESS YOU!
if I'm not back it's because I couldn't find a job or my b-plan team. Or they are going to start treating me the same way they are treating Valerie Plame. Ms. Plame stay strong, stay strong!

oh, I have to do this- Christian, come what may, I will love you until my dying day. It's been 7 years- almost 8- I'd give anything to be able to "you know" one last time. You were the only one who wanted to fund my corporation for the good of all. I saved your life, I wish you could save mine.

I dont think Dita takes herself too seriously. Her work and outward appearance maybe but emotionally she is ok.

To 12:51 AM,

...and swallow my tears.

Emotionally, I've not learned. I lack the capacity to learn.

Intellectually, I don't have a problem.

About a month ago, at a library, after a pleasaant conversation about the Renaissance in Italy. A man gave me his card and requested that we meet for dinner. At my departure into a cab, the gentleman took my hand, brought it to his lips and kissed my hand...saying...'ciao bella'.

As the vehicle left, I started crying. My driver asked if that man hurt me. I said no.

I spent a whole hour in therapy discussing the matter. I spent time with my parents talking about it.

I will not ever communicate with him again. I won't go back to that library, for a good while.

Fortunately, Chicago has excellent libraries everywhere, and the InterLibrary Loan system will get me whatever I want, wherever I want.

Mistake costs dishwasher $59,000 - CNN.com

Do you every wonder about taxes, fines, money seized, houses, cars, etc.?
What happened to that big money seizure from that crooked drug pharma man from Mexico? He claimed he was working for the President of Mexico and the money apparently was laundered in Vegas. Where does that money go or does it go into more corrupt pockets?

Wonder who employed this dishwasher and if they withheld taxes? Chances are they did so would that be double/triple dipping?

I never heard of your ancestor/relative.

According to the Nobel Prize official website, your ancestor/relative 'Binkley' [and other researchers] did contribute and work with the Nobel winner in 1940, but did not win the prize with him. Only Doisy was honored with the 1943 Nobel Prize.

Doisy wins Nobel Prize-Binkley, et al, are footnotes

and don't forget to kill BOB P. BURNS AND ALL HIS FRIENDS.

---Aileen Aranzamendez-Large----by the way, BOB P. BURNS WORKED FOR HOMELAND SECURITY AS A DIRECTOR OF SPECIAL TECH, HE NOW WORKS FOR DARPA. If he or any of his friends cannot arrest me for writing this---what does that tell you about me? I AM NOT CRAZY. I AM ALLOWED TO WRITE THESE THINGS AND WHEN BOB P BURNS IS KIDAPPED, ALONG WITH HIS FRIENDS---that tells you that I am right all along.
So be smart and help me. I keep my promises.

DON'T FORGET MY NAME: AILEEN ARANZAMENDEZ-LARGE ALSO KNOWN AS AILEEN LARGE. if you googled and you read this---then be smart about it--the tech I am talking about is true and I will sue for billions of dollars with the others too.

so much intrigue--personally, I find intrigue so boring, I can go to sleep. However, whatever it takes to bring these monsters from our government and military who are torturing me and other people---geez---they've been using mind control since the heyday of the ekplane! ekplane! Remember 'THE LOVE BOAT" now that's a clue. To the people reading this here in the US AND ABROAD: now's your chance to finally help to stop this torture and to be able to have money in the future. MAY I REMIND YOU THAT LOCKHEED MARTIN COST 40 BILLION OR SO. AND WHAT ABOUT THE OTHERS? AND WHAT ABOUT CERTAIN NSA GENERALS AND OFFICIALS WHO CAN BE SUED INDIVIDUALY? THERE'S ENOUGH FOR EVERY PERON typoe--IS THAT THE NEST NEXT WORD???

THERE'S ENOUGH FOR EVERY PERSON WHO DO NOT LIKE TO BE THE MASTERCLASS OR THE MASTER RACE. INCLUDING FOR THE soldiers and the people who work with BOB who cannot stand his lies and his experiments since day 1. Well--I'M SURE ATTY. COMEY'S AGENTS ARE ALWAYS AVAILABLE AT WORK so you can cooperate and get those bastards who carved out high positions for themselves sin is a typo in government by torture and murder and corruption--you know . . . has -- been kidnapped yet?

--go ahead complain about what I write--you'll only provide AN ISP even if it's not yours--it's something that can be used as evidence and exhibit.
