PO-PO, Forest Park PD soap opera [FP]

The Proviso Probe entry on Ed Reformado's lawsuit against the Village of Forest Park generated an unwieldly number of comments (almost 200). So I've started a new thread for discussing the soap opera that is the Forest Park police department.

Let the brawl begin!

166 Comments:

  • A consensus seems to have emerged in the previous discussion that Chief Jim Ryan looks like he's persecuting Dan Harder when he fires Harder to excessive sick day usage, but doesn't discipline Weiler for fixing parking tickets.

    Thoughts?

  • There was some complaining about what's off topic or not.

    I try to be liberal (or is it lazy?) and not delete comments for being off topic. I think I've done it a couple times, but it really has to be egregiously off topic.

    I've noticed that ForestPark.com has a bunch of posts attacking others for being off-topic or not spelling correctly. I'd rather not have a bunch of that on Proviso Probe. I find it makes the discussions hard to follow.

  • Somebody posting as "du stdnt" concluded with "Once outside, witness accounts I have heard back up Officer Gross's report."

    I'm curious where a Dominican University student would have gotten a copy of Gross' report.

    By Blogger Carl Nyberg, at 6:28 PM, April 20, 2006  

  • Let's consider the results Ken Gross achieved in his response to the incident at Duffy's.

    1. Gross got himself battered out of a situation that was petering out when he arrived.
    2. Gross used large amounts of force to apprehend Reformado, who prior to Gross arriving had only committed the offense of drinking under age.
    3. The Village of Forest Park is being sued. And worse the village has to put up with Jeanine Stevens. I suspect much of the village's leadership consider Stevens the most annoying lawyer they could envision facing.

    So it seems hard to consider Gross's police work a success in this case.

    If Gross stands back and says, "Forest Park police. What's going on?" the whole incident is likely avoided.

    Gross doesn't get hit.

    Reformado doesn't get beaten or Tasered.

    And Forest Park doesn't get sued.

    It boggles my mind that some people are trying to claim that Gross engaged in effective policing.

    Reformado and his friend drank under age. They got into an argument in a bar. The argument escalated into a minor scuffle and Reformado and friend were helped to leave Duffy's. By the time Gross arrived the fight was largely over. Reformado's antagonist was leaving.

    But when Gross injects himself into the situation it becomes a major melee. Cops are supposed to de-escalate situations, not be a source of volatility.

  • Carl,

    With regards to parking tickets, all we've heard from Bbones is that the FP cops are so upstanding. If they are so upstanding why the hell are they fixing each other's tickets. And another thing, Ryan fires Harder for sick days but let's someone get away with deleting tickets. He's talking out of both sides of his mouth.

  • How bout identifying yourself as an officer? That would be a good start. Oh, I know Gross said he did do that, let's believe him because he has a nice shiny badge.

  • Jim Ryan doesnt care that parking tickets are fixed. Jim Ryan deletes tickets all the time and so does his good old boys. He now only cares because its Harders tickets and its Weiler that deleted them. Weiler is a stand up guy and thats why lyin Jim Ryan doesnt like him. Do You think the Mayor has paid for the parking tickets he has gotten. Do you think the Murphys and Codys have paid ther parking tickets. How about the countless off duty policemen and public officials who have gotten tickets do you really think they paid there tickets. Most if not all were deleted.

  • Proudrep,

    I have the hardest time even capitalizing his name, jim ryan, let alone calling him a chief. This rendition of management is such a disappointment. My only fear is that in reality nothing can be done until a new election because of his relationship with mayor quimby. Even then, who knows? Forest Park taxpayers are the ones that will suffer the most from his lack of management.

    Whether or not they continue to sweep these incidents under the rug, one thing is apparent, police misconduct and brutality will rear its ugly head again. You would think the mayor would have learned by now. History has a way of repeating itself if not corrected.

    Unfortunatley there is such a divided group that the attention and focus of changing this mindset may never come into fruition.

    fp fbi, where can one get information on upaid tickets that mayor quimby owes? should we contact the CIA?

    Carl would you be able to find out, that could make for some interesting reading?

    I remember channel 7 broadcasted a bit on City officials/employees that owed a large amount of money (combined) for parking tickets to the City of Chicago. I do remember them also showing some city officials getting the boot.

    Government inefficiencies never cease to amaze me. So if they can erase records, it would be a cakewalk to falsify reports.

One would have to prove that. How would you prove that? I don't agree with you. I am not an asswipe. I do however, wipe my ass.

    That is not what the site said specifically word for word. No one here has a short memory. These discussions have been going on for nearly a month. You misquoted by adding the following, I have heard back up Officers Gross's report in quotes.

    I know as a reader it seemed a bit confusing since you added your opinion in quotes.

  • Carl,

    I went back and read a few more quotes from your original posts. I noted the following from Weiler's report, which is interesting, specifically number 2:

    Offense/incident report Forest Park Police 1. Case # 0803-00879
    2. Unusual Jail Occurrence 3. Injured Prisoner


    2. Unusual Jail Occurrence - Hmmm, I wonder what that means.


    Also, you are right, there are no statements on this website stating once outside witneses accounts backup Gross's report. This was definitely a misquote by someone trying to offer a tainted perspective of what you have written on this website. Could it indeed, be a short memory?

    I am a student at DU as were most of the witnesses so I've had a chance to talk to people who were there and saw first hand what happened, yes this is hearsay, but I have also shown them the March 10 post and they agree with what Gross has on that report. That is not my opinion. The witness accounts I was speaking of were these, if i was unclear in my earlier statements, sorry.

    I was hesitant to join this discussion. I wasn't there, but I know quite a few who were and heard practically the same account from other students actually there that night. I am so glad to see my hesitation was so unfounded.

  • Dear DU Stnd:

    I have excerpted text from the Forest Park Police Department's official documents.

    Carl said, he excerpted text, which means the report was not verbatim. Sometimes, when things are discussed, especially third or fourth person down the line, meaning is loss or added. While your opinion is just that, other people have their own as well. Unfortunately, since you weren't there or anyone else for that matter its not gospel, its still hearsay. Now, I know you wouldn't want to repeat things that you are not sure of as being actual events that occurred since you cannot account for them. Thank you for your insight as to what some of your friends or associates have said. That may or may not necessarily make them "reliable" witnesses" or "reliable sources" for that matter. Please feel free to continue to express YOUR opinions.

    What year are you in?

Do you think that the crime of brutalizing a prisoner will ever have consequences in Forest Park? What do you suggest is an immediate remedy for the FPPD problems that have been occurring since 2003? Any suggestions.

Everytime someone brings up this Administration (Mayor Calderone, Commissioner Hosty, and jim ryan) it makes me ill. The crooks get more crooked worse everday. Continual lies about what developments will get approved and won't get approved. Then a poster (probably a cop) states, Murphys, Cody's and the Mayors tickets are fixed all the time. Yet we the public who are lessor than them should pay or else.

Du Student acknowledged his witness accounts amounted to hearsay. However, he has spoken to people that were there. He, thus far, is the only poster to come onto this site with statements from eye witnesses. And you really smart folks dismiss him and continue with your name calling because he points out The Police appear more credible than Reformado.

Talk bout us expecting their handouts. I tell you I hope God heard every bad word spoken and takes the matter into his own hands. They made fun of Debra Cole asking for basketball nets to be put back into the park. What the hell we got a park, if it isn't for the kids. Just because some po-pos and some people don't understand the African American culture don't mean they have to treat our children like bastards. I'm with proudrepublican this Administration makes me feel ill.

Those services are really needed. I do realize that some people abuse the system but what are those that really need the services to do.

    Debra Cole was right for writing that letter. It's ashame people are more interested in criticizing the grammar than to help out.

According to the Review article the schools have no reason to deny lunches, free or reduced, because they get reimbursements based on the number of children on the program.

    As far as the Park goes,.. have you seen the number of kids there for Little League, Soccor, the Pool, during the 4th of July, at the No Gloves Tourny or there on a saturday or sunday just playing a pick up game of ball? I think the Park does a great job. I really do not see where she is seeing this. I know as well that from time to time kids get a break when it comes to the LL fee.

You wan't the basketball hoops back, Debra you got bigger problems you had better start addressing them, basketball hoops are the least of your worries my dear. Also before you go spouting off about the minority's in our schools you should check and see who the minority is now.

    You don't know what its like to walk in somebody else's shoes. Stop assuming you can cover all the basis with your free ride speech.

    Obviously there are kids that missed lunch, why we don't know. Assume everyone wants a free ride. I don't buy that either. Who's responsiblity is it for lunches, the parents of course but if the school district promises free lunch or reduced lunch than that's what they should get.

    First of asshole, let me say I pay taxes too and that I am not a negligent parent. You underlying tones indicate (in your uppity white fashion) nigger get off the welfare and pay for your kids lunch and do something with him after school. I'm saying you are a fuckin idiot because I am not on welfare and I do pay for my kids lunch. Just because you are a white racist doesn't mean you are the only one that pays taxes. Here's another clue those programs are set up for single income families or families in need. What makes you think your speech of I pay taxes and you are negligent parent covers those extenuating circumstances for all people? Are you judging? If a family is in need that doesn't necessarily mean that they are negligent. Peter H your have more issues than free lunches, its called racism.

You must really think your something well your not -- get over yourself lady. You are not as well behaved as you pretend to be. Go ahead and laugh about depressed children, it isn't has funny as you think. I'm glad someone will be judging you just like you judge others. What happened if your husband died, or lost his job or you went bankrupt? What then, do you want people laughing that you have to go get free lunches for your kids because you ran out of bread. The $5.50 hr job didn't cut it especially with gas and rent prices escallating. What a joke you are -- to think you know every situation.

    You talk about Ms. Cole having issues, when in reality you have the issues. You are asking for more than conformity. You are saying families in need shouldn't ask for help, let their kids and them starve. -- How dare they look for a free ride? or are you saying nigger stay where the hell I put you and don't get up until I say so and don't expect a hand out from me. You just lucky I let you live in Forest Park. How dare you write a letter -- what gives you that right?

They are not educated enough to know what your talking about or to understand your underlying tones of demeaning expressions. Your sick of them bringing down your property values and expecting you to raise their kids and you are going to let somebody know about this.

    So many things are wrong with this scenario and way of thinking it isn't even funny, its sick, pathetic and one step away from wearing the white hooded masks. So coming from you, about my language, I laugh -- at least I haven't lost my soul to bigotry.

  • Let's all calm down. There are two sides to every story. There are single families in need and there are also people that take advantage of the not so free things in life.

    The free lunches or reduced lunches are set up through the school district using tax dollars to fund the lunch programs. Pete H and Living in FP, perhaps your issues of your tax dollars should be addressed to the appropriate parties at the school district, then at the State level and then at the Federal level.

    If you do find that at the State level you can reduce your taxes so that you are not paying into the free lunch system, please let Deborah Cole know so that she can use her tax money as well to pay for lunch for her children. This would be a win-win situation.

    If you find at the Federal level you can reduce your taxes, please let me know so that I can buy that BMW I have been eyeing.

  • Outsider,
    The point I was attempting to make was this. I have my own children. Because they are mine, I must provide for them, clothe them, shelter them and feed them. I do not expect anyone to do this for me. If I forget to send my children off to school without his/her lunch I do not think they should get one for free. That is my point.
    My family was on the reduced/free lunch programs more than once. We qualified for and took advantage of the WIC Program when our kids were infants. I do not equate Welfare to Ethnicity. The fact that you do, is interesting. I heard once that when a persons vocabulary sinks to profanity and is essentially reduced to name calling and finger pointing, they know they lost the argument but have no way to respond intelligently. Is this the case with you. Your postings quickly went south.
    Oh, and yes, if your kids are depressed because they can not find anything to do with themselves after school, get off your lazy ass and find something for them!

Get over yourself people, you are racist but will fight to the end to try to defend your conscience. I don't think your reply can be any more childish. . . I'm not you are, I know you are but what am I, if the shoe fits where it. Shut your pie hole and talk to somebody who is impressed with your rants - I'm not. Also, let it be known that if a white family is needy than hell yes they are entitled to a free or reduced lunch depending on their needs. Pete H and Living FP you were the ones who said people in needs were negligent parents. Now you are here to get me to justify what I said. I know what I said.

  • Did'nt Tim Gillian push for Mr. Parilli's wife's firm along with Eugene Moore's firm to go ahead and take over the Insurance for the Township? Was it not Gillian and Sloan who pushed these two insurance firms down the Township's throat and the taxpayers of Proviso are now stuck paying for it? Read this article about Mr. Parilli, it is interesting that the Republican Party is outraged by these guys antics, but in Proviso and in Forest Park Mr. Parilli is an honored guest! Thanks Tony and Tim for making Forest Park and Proviso a cesspool of incompetent,corrupt, and lying place to live,where we honor dubious people and give these folks are hard earned tax money,eventhough they are not qualified to clean our toilets!!!Just because they are your friends and you two think it's ok,does not mean it is!
    Remnants of former undersheriff James Dvorak's political operation are
    re-surfacing in Cook County these days and threaten to wreck havoc on
    hard-fought gains made the past two years against the entrenched Democratic
    establishment. In 1988, Dvorak unseated Cook County Chairman Don Totten in a
    surprising reversal. Totten, you may recall, was Ronald Reagan's presidential
    campaign manager for Illinois.

    Not long after his victory over Totten, Dvorak was forced to step down as
    undersheriff on charges that he was accepting bribes from mob sources. Later
    Dvorak pled guilty-from jail-to hiring ghost payrollers.Don Sloan and Jim Parrilli, Former
    Proviso Township Republican Committeeman and one of James Dvorak's chief allies
    during the late 1980's and early '90's appears intent on bringing back James
    Dvorak's glory days of political mischief and questionable practices.

    In the 1980's, Parrilli and Sloan admitted to wrongly using public resources to solicit
    political contributions, as reported in the Chicago Tribune (4/2/1985). Judy
    Baar Topinka, a sitting State Senator during the scandal-plagued Dvorak days, at
    that time opposed Parrilli's re-election as Proviso Township Republican
    Committeeman,but Sloan backed him and between both of them they beat Topinka's slate (Chicago Tribune, 12/10/1989). Despite their questionable
    association with Dvorak and checkered past, Parrilli managed to win the 19th
    Ward Republican Committeeman's race on Chicago's Southwest side in 2004 with Don Sloan backing him and winning by only 11 vote margin.
    On Wednesday night (April 19, 2006), Parrilli was running for an Illinois
    Republican Party State Central Committeeman's seat at the Cook County organizing
    convention, and he initially lost to incumbent George Preski. Cook County
    Chairman Gary Skoien ruled twice that a proxy Parrilli attempted to submit was
    not valid and was not timely cast. After continued pressure from Parrilli and Sloan
    the late arrival (in person) of the proxy grantor (Committeeman Helen Cashman
    from Mike Madigan's 13th Ward), Skoien resuscitated Parrilli's bid by allowing
    Cashman to confirm her votes for Parrilli, and Skoien then accepted the disputed
    proxy, which had been altered. Skoien's ruling erased Preski's lead and
    tentatively gives the spot to Parrilli, subject to review by the State
    Republican Party. Commissioner Tony Peraica and State Treasurer Judy Baar
    Topinka cast their weighted votes against Parrilli and Sloan.

    Parrilli and Sloan are also at the center of a challenge to Clark Pellett as the sitting
    Republican Chicago Chairman. An ally of Topinka, Pellett was in his own battle
    on that Wednesday night, but he was eventually supported by a unanimous vote.
    Pellett who is a Life Member of the Republican Party (Eisenhower Commission) and
    a Sustaining Member of the Republican National Committee is also a Presidential
    Roundtable member. He gives generously to state and local Republican
    candidates, according to State Board of Election records, and is a member of the
    NRSC's Inner Circle.

    By contrast, Jim Parrilli's State Board of Election contribution records show
    that he has apparently never given money to any Republican candidate. More
    shocking is that just 8 months ago, in August of 2005, Parrilli was a
    contributor to Democratic State Representative Kevin Joyce (D. - 35th District)and Eugene Moore and Chris Welch.Don Sloan also has given money to Democrats,such as Chris Welch,Eugene Moore,David Irleand, and others,but has given only token amounts of $25 to $75 dollars.
    -even though Parrilli was a sitting Republican Ward committeeman and Don Sloan is the self proclaimed Head of the Republicans in Proviso!

    "It appears that our Democratic "friends" have found new ways to snarl the
    Republican Party-with scurrilous attempts to thin our ranks and reverse our
    progress," said Pellett. These conflicts, stoked by the likes of Parrilli and Sloan,
    simply waste our Republican time, energy and resources-much to the benefit of
    Rod Blagojevich and his Democratic cronies. We need to guard against more
    challenges coming from these people or we will see our hopes dim for Republican
    victories in November.

  • From the Chicago Tribune editorial

    Ryan has claimed all along that he did nothing wrong, and that he knew nothing about the crimes of his compatriots. His evident attitude toward his own corrupt acts mirrored the phrase his lawyer frequently used during the trial's closing arguments: "Who cares?" Twelve jurors cared. Twelve jurors, acting for the 12 million people of Illinois. Twelve jurors devoted to the notion - plainly novel to Ryan - that citizens are entitled to the honest services of the public officials they elect to office.

    Lead Prosecutor Patrick Collins

    "Whether you're the dogcatcher or the governor, you are elected to do work for the citizens," said lead prosecutor Patrick Collins in another post-verdict news conference. "This duty of honest services is not something it takes someone with a law degree to understand. Public officials have a duty of honest services; that is, to serve the people and not their private interests. And anybody who hears this, if they want to serve their private interest, they ought to go get a job in the private sector."

    Its embarassing to hear the gossip that comes out of the Village by a secretary who in turn is related to one of the most brutal police officer on the force. Calderone what a misuse and abuse of your power as Mayor. Since everyone knows Murphy is a thug, is that the message you are trying to say. Don't mess with me or I'll sick Murphy or Murphy's wife after you. Very sleazy politics.

    Do think it is right for our Mayor,to get involved in other towns elections?
    Hey Pugs, I don't care if our mayor is having an affair or is gay, what I do care is to have a mayor who does not plan to get rich off our town and a mayor that does emulate the mayor of Melrose Park and thinks that to be a good mayor is to govern like Melrose Park!

  • Those folks have been gone a while now and I don't see the village services deminished at all, maybe they were "Fat" that needed to be trimmed.
    Calderone was not the only one that voted for and received the raise. And that was done BEFORE he was re-elected. I guess the voters felt the raise was in order.

    Politics is politics, I would expect our village to be involved with other municipalities. The alternative may alienate us.

    Run against him if you think he has been in office too long.

  • Hey Pugs, what are the chances of someone beating Calderone in the next election?
    Will Calderone run with a slate? And if yes with who?
    What are Calderone's strengths and what are his weaknesses?
    How many voters are there in town and how many vote, and what is there party affiliation?
    I jst want to know in case a decide to go for it.

  • I think Village Mayor's should be capped at a 4 year term definitely no more than 8. Otherwise, its easier to hide corruption, backroom deals, illicit sleazy friends to come work for your, buy loyalty, and cover all your tracks. 4 years is plenty to do your dirty work. 8 is slaughtering the dirty pigs and hanging them out to dry. Good for your Calderone.

    Calderone's strength - Talk out of both sides of your mouth

    Weakness - Pompous, judgemental and racist. Stronly opposes minorities.

  • Well, well,

    I guess the Young Drunk didn't expect his friends to tell the investigators "He must have been really drunk to act that way."

    I guess the fact that from inside the bar, looking out the windows some 20 feet away, people could tell the man he struck was a Cop blows the young drunks claim out of the water.

    I guess, by his friends account, 3 and a half hours of drinking in the bar left little Eddy a little drunk.

    I guess his martial arts training had an effect as he "Wildly fought off the cops"

    I hope his mom didn't spend a lot of cash on a retainer for the lawyer they hired.

    Looks like I was right all along. This was not abuse, but a young drunk suspect on a rampage.

  • That's funny bb/hosty, this is no surprise to anyone that your investigation would be in favor of police brutality, dah! hahahaha

    Most likely the investigation won't hold up in civil court. The Village of Forest Park is not the civil court, far from it.

    Haa,haaa, Bones did you really think this would be a surprise. A police sex offender heading up an investigation to investigate his drinking buddy cop that has mob ties.

    hahahhahahah,.

  • This investigation was fixed and everyone knows it. Again, the only report that matters is the one the judge stamps in civil court. Forest Park will never admit to police brutality, it does them no good. If they admit to one, they would have to admit to all and that would cost big money. Rather or not the police smelled alcohol is irrelevant to police brutality in civil courts. Its a good thing Ken Gross admitted to backhanding him while in handcuffs.

    I hope Forest Park's insurance companies can continue to foot the lawyer bills, its my understanding that they hired another lawyer, is he overseeing your other lawyers. Hahahahahha.

  • Give me a break. Years now I've listened to the same crap about coruption. Do you realize how hard it is to actually steal money from a municipality? Everything is checked and double checked. Unless everyone else is corrupt, like the finance people, the staff who handle the bills, and the auditors, it's vertually impossible. We've heard enough about this lie and have never,ever seen anything to back it up. If you don't belive me, ask Carl. He won't let anything pass. It is a political ploy placed there to spread rumors and fear. I can't believe that there are so many people out there to thrive and believe the lies. You need something concrete to prove preformance and preformance is based upon actual facts. The fact is our town has never been better, has never received more bang for its buck, and has never been so popular. Let the facts speak for themselves and use your brain.

    If you call in sick you should be home sick, on your way to the doctor, on your way to the pharmacy or on your way to the hospital. Nothing more nothing less.

  • Carl has every right to censure posts here simply because it's his blog.

    Frankly Carl the truth may hurt.

    This whole Harder saga has certainly taken several spins but when you listen to Jeanine's witness's what you here if you listen close is clearly "I Think" or "I believe", very little if any fact.

    But for a activist journalist there is no accuracy in reporting of the real truth.

    A liar is a liar plain and simple.

    The other collateral charges only seek to further enhance the argument that Harder is much much less than truthful plain and simple.

    Once a cop lies he/she can no longer but trusted or trustworthy in a court of law.

    Chief Ryan should have no reason to hate or retaliate against Harder but when the ship is sinking so to speak as in Harder case the only argument he and his attorney can do is attempt to attack the character of the chief. It fails lousily although it has been a good try.

    I don't buy it. Facts are Facts.

  • The judge was very rude and disrespectful to the African American people. I just don't understand how the judge sleeps at night. He judges people incorrectly. Just remember judge that you may be in the position to judge people now, but God will judge you later. The judges display a total lack of disrespect and are so unprofessional it's terrible. Court lasts up to 3 hours just to listen to everyones case while the judge makes silly jokes while wasting tax-payers money to harrass the people who pays his salary. Just remember, "what goes around, comes around."

  • This is for all of you who think you know Dan Harder. You don’t! He is a sick, controlling man. I feel sorry for the people that come in contact with this man he is evil. He is poison. He will do what ever it takes to get what he wants. He never cared about being a police officer he manipulated innocent people and ruined their careers. Life happens, and Dan Harder thinks it’s a game. Well I hope the game is over, and I hope Dan Harder looses, although he has already lost I know. I hope the people he has used and abused are able to rise above and go on. Dan Harder prides himself on his psychology degree, I think it is time he see a shrink.
