Smackledorfer: The pension should stay. The spot on the board should go.


Absolutely not, especially considering that this is in regards to official misconduct.  He shouldn't get a dime, and he should still be in prison.  If you do something illegal on the clock as a public employee, or related to your duties/powers, your pension should be gone.  If you do something stupid and off the clock like DUI or fraud, you should keep your pension, minus whatever the civil judgement is against you.

Why should he keep his pension when they were committing crimes while wearing the badge? State law seems pretty clear on that.

Is there anyone in Illinois politics who isn't a felon? 4 of the last 7 governors have ended up in prison and a corrupt mayor and police chief drawing a taxpayer funded pension.

No, you're not financially sound. You're in the hole for $100 billion.

Stone Park is the farking worst. Avoid it at all cost. Take any asshole cop and multiply his asshole-ness by 10,000 and you have every Stone Park cop. That place needs to be nuked off the face of the planet.

That is strange. I was assured by many progressives that this problem would be fixed when Illinois raised taxes.  Something about it not being a spending problem but a revenue problem.

Oh yes, lowering taxes will prevent corruption and incompetence in the police force, Dorothy.

Not to mention that the corrupt pieces of shiat involved are mostly Republicans.


::eye roll::

Can you both stfu about this being a democrat vs republican problem already?? This is a politician problem in that they're ALL farking corrupt -- cops, too. Any taste of power must make their moral compass go all wonky.

You actually need to go back nine governors to get four prisoners.  Not that I blame you, it's easy to forget that Jim Edgar didn't ever actually get charged.

Our hero is apparently being paid from a local pension fund, which might very well be in the black.  And he isn't even getting that much money out of it, although the story doesn't say how much he's getting paid for his service on the pension board.

However, I'd point out that a civilian who went to prison would have his retirement savings seized by the government, and would most likely forfeit his Social Security as well, so this is yet another example of different laws for made men and little people.

He didn't commit a crime remember that money is speech so there was no bribery just exchange of protected speech

Thanks Supreme court
