Lawyers

This is the only answer if you are involved in any sort of shooting or Use of Force where a CL/CR number will be obtained:
  • The hearing Friday was called to determine if prosecutors can use statements Van Dyke made to police union representatives after the shooting.

    Judge Vincent Gaughan granted prosecutors that access, largely because one of the union representatives had already spoken to FBI investigators as well as a grand jury about what Van Dyke told him.

    "The door is open, and it can never be shut," Gaughan said.

    Illinois law holds that union agents cannot be compelled to disclose information they get from union members except under certain circumstances. But prosecutors wanted to use statements made by Van Dyke himself, not the union representatives who interviewed him, complicating the legal issue.

    Van Dyke's attorneys admitted as much in a motion filed last month, stating that they have found no Illinois case law that is "directly on point with the situation presented here."
This case has drilled so many holes in Garrity protections, we're surprised the National Lodges haven't stepped in at some point to straighten out the half-assed way things are done here lest it endangers national precedent. Detective interviews ruled voluntary and not "under duress." Conversations with Union Representation admitted into Court proceedings.

Guess what? You cannot rely on your union representation to protect your Rights any more. The only sure-fire way to keep your Rights as an American citizen is a lawyer. And we dislike lawyers...intensely. But anything you tell a lawyer is privileged and will have a very hard time being used against you short of an actual conspiracy involving the lawyer himself/herself.

We have no idea what the FOP's plan is, but having a lawyer on call 24/7/365 is an immediate and absolute necessity from this point forward. Additionally, each and every Contract protection involving interviews MUST BE DEFENDED and STRENGTHENED especially in the face of Rahm's attempting to gut them.

I hope that Van Dyke's lawyers are screaming and appealing all this crud.
Get every wrong, indefensible piece of prosecutorial misconduct on the record.
Appeal it all. All the way to SCOTUS if necessary.
Build a case for mistrial, just in case.

If he doesn't win outright, having his conviction vacated in a mistrial could get him a second chance.

Sometimes we want to live in the past, and that can be dangerous. Though on some occasions we can learn from it.The days of the State's Attorney and Police working as a "Team" against Bad Guys, are long gone! Today the S.A. believes the defendant, not YOU. Cases are tossed regularly, because there is no video. What YOU say is of little value these days. So here is a little history, up until Jodie Weiss, when you were involved in a situation that entailed YOU and a dead offender/citizen, a round table was convened. The ASA, IAD, a Street Deputy, Medical Examiner's Investigator, Homicide Detective, and others, all sat in on this and the involved officer told his/her story. This INSANITY went on For Decades! Not until Supt. Weiss, an outsider looking in, said; how can you have an officer, without Miranda protections tell his story in front of a Prosecutor, who might based upon what is said, decide to prosecute the officer? Also for decades, the FOP Refused to Send cops an attorney to assist officers in an OIS or death investigations involving police. I can still recall FOP representatives coming to one of my roll calls and telling the officers, "You don't need a lawyer that early in the investigation. We will send you a representative from "Da" Hall". This is the bullshit that going back to the Donahue Administration at FOP was regularly fed to coppers. Meanwhile, those of us who were Sergeants had an attorney on call 24/7. When the shit hits the fan, no matter whether you were Right or Wrong; YOU ARE THE ACCUSED! My last incident in the Roundtable Era, had my actions and the officer with me as totally righteous. However, a shaky political Hack Lieutenant, Joey "G", who used to brag about his cousin in Da Outfit took out a CR, before we even reached the Area at Harrison and Kedzie! When things are swirling around you, and you yourself are hurt; it is very difficult to think clearly and regurgitate the General Orders. Fortunately for us, our Sgts. Union Lawyer arrived and took over. The incompetent Chief of Detectives, Ivanjack, who had fucked up the Ryan Harris case was backed off by the young Union attorney, and we walked out of there. Lawsuits followed, but Not criminal prosecution. Today, YOU have the benefit of an attorney, AND BELIEVE ME, THIS IS AN ABSOLUTE BLESSING! Please, understand clearly, I am not wasting our time with a War Story. My intent is to share with you a lesson learned by a guy who had several years as a Sgt. when this occurred. Detectives I had worked with when we were P.O.s, would not look me straight in the face. When You are the Accused, You have very few friends in the police department. 1. Say nothing to anyone, but your attorney. Do not speak to the FOP about the incident, unless you want them to get you an ambulance, or more attorneys. Speak only to your attorney in a private area. 2. Get off of Facebook today, and that applies to your wife/partner. Photos of Van Dyke from his wife's Facebook were printed in EUROPE by the British Daily Mail! 3.. If you hurt or feel injured, in any way, including injuries that can only be seen with an MRI; demand to be taken to a hospital. Statements will not be taken if you are injured and under medical care. However, talk to medical staff only on matters related to your ailment. Many nurses are bitter coppers' ex-wives, and many Physicians hate police. They are supposed to keep what you say confidential; but that can be violated. They can give up the results of your blood alcohol level, so confidentiality is clearly limited. Also there is a genuine attitude with a lot of cops who think they are innocent, to tell their story for some sense of sympathy. GUILT OR INNOCENCE IS DETERMINED BY A COURT. THE "TRUTH" IS TO BE DETERMINED; NOT BY YOU! 4. Always remember: "We are prisoners of what we SAY, and Masters of what we Do Not Say. Stay safe, You have few friends these days. But then again, Rahm and the ACLU have your back! Baby "G"

Comments on the SCC Blog which indicate that attending golf outings seems to be the priority of our fop officers when the rank&file seek answers from our "leaders."

Don't know how many of you have been on shooting scenes recently, but the union reps don't ask you any details about the shooting anymore as they shouldn't. They are there only to advise you of what to expect, make sure you are taken care of, and to make sure your contractual rights aren't trampled on.

A lawyer on scene is not a good idea for anyone. Do you want to make your statement immediately as a witness officer or do you want to have time to let the adrenaline stop so that you are clear-headed? If a lawyer is on scene, that isn't going to happen. You can bet your sweet asses that IPRA, COPA, or whatever the fuck they want to call themselves will demand your statement in exactly two-hours per the contract. If they are not on scene, you can lawyer up until they get there.

How about this? Shooters and/or witnesses should immediately demand EMS and get transported to the hospital. This is a traumatic incident for even the most grizzled vet. Get medicated and nobody is going to talk to you. If they do, it is unlikely that anything you say would carry any weight in their drug induced state.

Well sounds like the attorneys need to file for that to be inadmissible in court and not allow it into evidence. the judge has to follow previous court rulings and just can't make up his own laws and must protect his constitutional rights. Garrity statements are often given in administrative capacity to see if you violated dept policy not for criminal, this protection stems up from the 5th Admentment of the United States constitution , which declares that a government can't compel a person to be a witness against himself.

OTR: Today being Bud Billiken Parade day and after watching local news the last couple of days something has become obvious. For years before the South Side Irish Parade or Pride Parade you were constantly warned that officials (police I guess) wouldn't tolerate alcohol use on the parade route. Parade goers were warned that violaters would either be cited or arrested if found with open alcohol on or around the parade route and fines in th amounts of hundreds of dollars would be assessed. For some reason these warnings are noticeably absent on Billiken Day.
I know it's nothing new, as a young tac in the late 70's and early 80's bosses in the old 2nd District were telling the Roll Calls that this was a family day and we better not be fucking with the people. Then you'd be on Western Ave and they'd be saying you better lock up anybody you saw drinking a cup of beer.
Just like Toni, Rahm and the rest of the Democrats, rules only apply when they suit us. Like immigration, taxes on beverages.......

Earlier regimes are to hard headed to train the incoming regimes so for about at least 10 years the FOP has sat there with dicks in hand at the shootings.

When laws and union Contracts are disregarded, violated and overruled either by the mayor or a court, then what good is a union.
See the subtle point they're making?
This case has certainly become a circus of nitwits by design to fool everyone at every level and still made many a sizeable bundle.
It's going nowhere, no matter what rock they turnover next and it started with a quick settling for $6 million, KNOWING more trouble was going to come. (Why doesn't Rahm drop quick money like that on pension obligation debt?)

Gaughan is t worried about his job, but Rahm is certainly worried about his.
Not only did he open the door, he put a wedge in to keep it open for the vermin.

Rahm is edging towards his FOP Discipline overhaul and strict reform mandate to appease the community, I'd expect theres no settled Contract before Feb 2019.

No go out an get some ISR's by any means possible.

And when the Department want to interview you. Excuse yourself to a hospital for
Medical review for post traumatic stress......
Do interview in nice office after your stress and blood pressure comes back to normal.....

Why?
They are now using the conflicting statements from original incident interview as grounds
to fire officers.

So speak now or later. You choose your course and outcome?

Simple, you get legal defense. $24 a year comes out of your dues money. That's a whopping 480 bucks over a twent year period. Need a lawyer once during that time and you're well ahead of the game.

Go ahead and quit the union. You'll show them. You'll still have to make a fair share payment and then get legal defense on your own for about $300 a year if you're smart enough to buy it. I'm betting you're not.

++++++++


He can and he did. It's called legal precedence and this judge just set a new one in regards to Garrity statements. The judge said 'this is opening a door that can never be closed,' or something to that effect. I took that to mean he has willfully disregarded the legal precedence and legal protections/purposes for Garrity statements, thereby setting a new legal precedence that he clearly foresees being referenced to knock police officers around the country in future cases. Can you say megalomaniac?

Takeaway: law, legal precedence, fair and equal treatment, impartiality all mean nothing. The JVD case is a a perfect example of the perversion of our legal system. The individually assessed charges of aggbat for each bullet should be one shining example for you disbelievers. It is different to say "I feel JVD is guilty" versus "JVD is being railroaded in unprecedented ways." If you can say, with a straight face, that this isn't fucked up, you are a sick and extremely stupid person.

I don't do shit at work anymore. I'll back up fellow officers and help old people and animals. I'm able to shut off my adrenaline response to hearing loud reports and seeing people running. I'm concerned that I'll be caught in the middle of a shooting and respond or some other nonsense. If it comes to that, I'm thinking medical route followed by a talk to my own attorney. I had a shooting before and it was a cold, lonely process. The dicks were indifferent and I was forced to give statements to the WC, I think field LT. I didn't want to tall at the time because shit just happened so fast and I didn't trust anyone but I knew I'd be fired if I refused and I figured it would look like I was trying to cover up. I was asked how many rounds I fired. I had no clue but told a number. Later I was told how many rounds I fired and I was right. I was worried they would think I was purposefully counting rounds. All I know is that we fire when we feel it's necessary and these people are no saints. No, they don't deserve to die for no reasons, and they're not. Laquaon tried to slash a passerby's throat before police intervention, slashed at squad cars and refused to drop deadly weapon. He got the resolution society needed, irrespective of his race. Deep down, everyone knows this. Our job is a bullshit circus

I sound like Baby G now. .

Guess McKay and Sexton aren't the top-notched attorneys everyone would like you to believe they are. You my friend are a dummy and I certainly hope you are not someone people listen to because you suck.

Couldn't agree more. Problem is sometimes lawyers and their clients worry more about the perception and what people think if you do not testify, but legally and in the long run it's the right thing to do. Plus you can never get in trouble if you can't recall or remember something. We had a public official in Chicago who can never recall anything when forced to testify
