Did you ever wonder why you never see the Chicago Police on the TV show Cops?
Maybe you never noticed it, but it’s true. You’ll see Albuquerque, Fort Worth, Denver, but you’ll never see Chicago and I know why. Anyone that lives here knows why too. It’s because they don’t want you to see how the Chicago Police really are. The way they beat people up everyday. All the money they make from ambulance chasers. The way they enter a drug dealers house without a warrant and beat the truth out of people.
It’s not that I think beating up a drug dealer is bad, I don’t. I like to see them get the crap kicked out of them. Also, I think that beating the truth out of anybody who is obstructing justice is good police work. That’s the way I was raised, in Chicago.

Audy home in Chicago is where juveniles are sent while they await court. If sentenced, they go to any one of several other juvenile penitentiaries. Although I was a bad kid and locked up in Audy Home on five occasions, I never did any actual time. I usually got out when I went to court. […] Continue reading →
When I was about fifteen or sixteen, I learned to carry a weapon at all times while driving in Chicago. My dad came to visit us in those days. I hadn’t seen him in two years, so I was pretty excited when he pulled up in his 1963 Riviera. He had with him his new, […] Continue reading →
Growing up on the North-side of Chicago, I knew many men who had a lot of fights. In all my job-hopping (over 100 different jobs) I met a lot of outspoken, potato sack slingers who would stand up to anything, and win. My two uncles were probably the toughest guys in the neighborhood. I worked […] Continue reading →
To people like me, that grew up in Chicago, this is nothing new. But to all the rest of the web, it might interest you to know the way justice is served in Chicago. Maybe one day things will turn around here, but until then, we just don’t mess with the cops- they are above […] Continue reading →
Chicago 1981: I had been an ambulance chaser for a while and was already popular with most of the cops in 16th district. But this one incident will always stay etched on my mind because I was beaten for no reason. It worked out in the end because I got the car, but only thanks […] Continue reading →
It started out as a typical day- twelve hours at the wheel of a Yellow Cab in Chicago. I leased it for twenty-four hours, but I usually worked about twelve. I was getting tired and heading in the general direction of home. That was my system- once I reached my quota (about $150 or more), […] Continue reading →
Dateline Chicago 1981: I was eighteen years old and driving a taxi. You had to be at least twenty-five to drive for Yellow Cab, but I had a fake license. In those days it was very easy to get a fake license. The Illinois Licenses didn’t have a picture on them in those days! Even […] Continue reading →
Dateline: Chicago, March 5th, 2011. I was northbound on Pulaski Road approaching Milwaukee Avenue. As I stopped for the red light, a green car that was parked tried to pull out into the traffic lane, in front of the red car that was in front of me. The car in front of me did not […] Continue reading →
Chicago 1981: I was twenty-one years old, and had just gotten out of the Army. I was married and had two kids already, so I needed to make some good money. I got a job at Majestic Towing- they had two tow trucks and an auto body shop. It was here that I’d learn how […] Continue reading →
