Bank freezes account with donations to Fox Lake cop's family


bank account set up to collect funds for the family of Fox Lake police Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz has been frozen while police investigate the officer's death, now believed to be a suicide, and years of criminal activity he allegedly feared would come to light.
The fund was set up before the Lake County Major Crime Task Force ruled Gliniewicz's Sept. 1 death a suicide and announced that he allegedly stole thousands of dollars from the Explorer youth police training program he ran, during a time when the officer was widely lauded as a community hero. BMO Harris Bank spokesman Patrick O'Herlihy confirmed Wednesday that the funds were being held "pending the results of the police investigation."

It's not clear how much money is being held or who will determine what happens to it, as O'Herlihy said he could not answer questions about the account during the investigation.

People who want their donations back should contact the charity groups that collected their money to inquire about refunds, Covelli said. The village of Fox Lake did not sponsor any fundraising events or set up any accounts for donated funds, he said.
Joe Ahern, CEO of the 100 Club, said last week he handed Gliniewicz's widow a check for $15,000 at a vigil shortly after his death. Normally, that would have been followed by another $35,000, along with financial assistance for the officers' children's educational expenses, he said.
But after learning Gliniewicz's death had been ruled a suicide, the organization asked for the donation to be returned, Ahern had said. The check was cashed, he said, and he's now working with an attorney representing the family

Fox lake cop was a criminal, and was willing to put 2 white men and 1 black man in jail for life

just so his family could get extra pension money on his death which is now deemed a suicide due to his criminal investigation. Cops harassed coroner at his home in front of the coroners family,when it was first brought up that it looked like suicide.
Ok kill your self but why bring 3 innocent people and a racial slant into the mess. People on lock down all day and $$$$ spent on man hunt . Then the cops were on a crazy manhunt for cop killers, that didn't exist but they tried to find and we know how that goes down.

Cop before killing himself called in he was in pursuit of 2 white men and 1 black men for suspicious activity. Then he was found dead in the woods. Thankfully everyone arrested had alibis!!

Criminal acts to the end . His list of crimes and stealing are part of an investigation of the whole force

Trump's new book Crippled America – live read

Adam Gabbatt is reading the Republican presidential candidate’s new book so you don’t have to
LIVE Updated 2h ago

On to Chapter 15: “Teaching the media dollars and sense”.

I don’t know what that means either. Although it sounds like it could be the title of a Trump University course. (Remember that?)

Trump lists some media organisations that were unfriendly to him when he launched his presidential campaign. Earlier in the book he had said sticks and stones might break his bones but names will never hurt him. That’s been put to one side.

The media is “sad” and “often pathetic”. Has he been speaking to my dad?

Trump has built a lot of buildings. He lists many of them. Gotta bump up that word count!

Only two chapters left.

Anonymous Denies List of KKK Members after politicians respond

Updated | Online hacking group Anonymous has denied responsibility for the recent publication of a list that claims some U.S. politicians belong to the Ku Klux Klan.

Last week, Anonymous said it would soon release the identities of about 1,000 members of the white supremacist organization. Anonymous is expected to release the details on Thursday, the day of the global protest movement known as the Million Mask March, in which demonstrators around the world will march in a protest against corrupt governments and corporations.

Anonymous denies it has any connection to the list of names, which was published Saturday on the website Pastebin. Most of the politicians included on the list—four Republican senators, four Democratic mayors and a Republican mayor—have denied the claims.

Surreal ! Killer's mom not only bonded over guns , but read Donald Trump to him as a child


In an online forum, answering a question about state gun laws several years ago, Ms. Harper took a jab at “lame states” that impose limits on keeping loaded firearms in the home, and noted that she had AR-15 and AK-47 semiautomatic rifles, along with a Glock handgun.
She also indicated that her son, who lived with her, was well versed in guns, citing him as her source of information on gun laws, saying he “has much knowledge in this field.”

“I keep two full mags in my Glock case. And the ARs & AKs all have loaded mags,” Ms. Harper wrote. “No one will be ‘dropping’ by my house uninvited without acknowledgement.”

One piece of advice Ms. Harper dispensed online for a parent with an autistic infant was to start reading to the child as soon as possible and to use expressive gestures. An online posting from six years ago included the unlikely revelation that she used to read to her son a book by Donald J. Trump, the real estate mogul now running for president, who recently suggested that childhood vaccines cause autism — a claim Ms. Harper dismisses in her postings.

“Fact: Before my son was even born, I was reading out loud to him from Donald Trump’s ‘The Art of the Deal,’” she wrote. “And as for the ‘gesture effect,’ I was practically a mime. And now my son invests in the stock market along with me, turns a profit and is working on a degree in finance. His language and reading skills are phenomenal.

Well...he was able to put together a manifesto so....
Reading to a kid a Donald Trump book?
It also talks about his autism issues and hospitalized when off his medications

Board to Decide Pension Benefits for Gliniewicz Family

As police continue to investigate the cause of the shooting death of Gliniewicz, who was found dead shortly after he radioed police to say he was pursuing three suspects on Sept. 1, the pension board will have to decide if Gliniewicz’s widow is entitled to the larger benefits providing to spouses of officers killed in the line of duty, the Chicago Tribune reports.

Spouses of officers killed in the line of duty can receive a pension that is equal to 100 percent of the officer’s salary and the spouses and children are eligible for free health insurance, the newspaper reports. Children can receive free tuition at state-supported colleges and the state and federal government give lump-sum benefits worth several hundred thousand dollars to survivors.

Richard Reimer, a Hinsdale attorney who specializes in pension law and a former police officer, told the Chicago Tribune a ruling of suicide, for example, could significantly decrease the benefits allocated to survivors.

Even editorials are asking for the results due to the citizens of this community

It's OK to tell the full truth about the Fox Lake police officer's death

Probe of Illinois officer's death marked by tension between cops, coroner

Late Tuesday, the Chicago Sun-Times reported that investigators met with the pathologist who performed the autopsy on Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz last week without Lake County coroner Dr. Thomas Rudd's knowledge. The pathologist, identified as Manny Montez, confirmed to the paper that the meeting took place.
"They called me and told me to be present, so I showed up,” Montez said. “We went over my findings. They had copies of my sketches because I haven’t finalized my [autopsy] report yet."

Fox News first reported last week that two sources close to the case say evidence suggests that Gliniewicz, 52, a 30-year veteran of the Fox Lake, Ill. police force, could have shot himself, despite the original characterization of his death as an execution-style murder by police. Authorities say that while they continue to actively investigate the case as a homicide, they say they aren't ruling out suicide.
Rudd told the Sun-Times that he was "totally confused" when told that the meeting had happened without him. Montez's role is to report his autopsy findings to Rudd, who will make the final determination about the cause of Glieniewicz's death.

Meanwhile, Fox 32 Chicago reported that authorities are also still waiting for the result of ballistics and DNA tests that could determine both whether Glinieweicz, 52, was shot with his own service weapon and if unknown DNA found at the scene matches anyone in a criminal database.The station also reported that computers belonging to Gliniewicz are being forensically analyzed at a laboratory and his social media presence is also being scrutinized. However, investigators are still waiting for certain websites to comply with requests by law enforcement.

The drama began on the morning of Tuesday, Sept. 1 when Gliniewicz radioed in from a remote, marshy area that he was beginning a foot pursuit with three suspects, two white males and one black male. Shortly after that, his radio communication cut off—leaving police with minimal description of the men.

Minutes later, backup officers arrived and discovered Gliniewicz had been shot and killed. An enormous manhunt followed. Police quickly alerted the public to be on the lookout for the three suspects.

Sources tell Fox News two shell casings were found about 100 feet apart from each other near Gliniewicz’s body, which was discovered face down. His hand was in a gun position, the firearm “dropped at his body.”

I read the police did visit Rudd's house unexpectedly where he lives with his family to talk to him.....hmm more tension what is going on here ??
Is the police force just being anxious and pressuring the final say too soon
or trying to change the outcome?
Or is the coroner not helping with the investigation to find the killers enough so they are bypassing him and doing an analysis of the pathology reports themselves for leads?

"Like Feeding a Stray Dog" What People in a Rich Neighborhood Say About the Homeless

But a big contingent express mockery, disgust and outright hatred of the men and women pictured. Here are a few more examples:

A photo of a man sleeping on the sidewalk: "We almost tripped up over this guy on 27th street! Just now. 311 called. Going to be a long hot stinky summer!"

Shirtless guy falling asleep against a building: "Nodding out today at 3pm, 30th & 2nd. I guess he is dreaming about exercising his right to vote, or something equally monumental."

A man sitting on a park bench: "Fancy taking the kids to Vincent Albano? With this guy sat there staring at the play area? Not me!"

"Just to remind everyone. It is really important that we never give money to any vagrant, it is just like feeding a stray dog, if they get some scraps, they will keep coming back."

"They take food stamps on our dime and take over our neighborhood that we all worked hard to live in. Enough is enough. I am all for supporting the handicapped but not lazy, freeloading scum."

A guy with a cart full of belongings that includes a stuffed toy. "I'd call
911 and say he's soliciting children. It's time to take this up a level and get these guys out."

A picture of a man in a hoodie, who actually doesn't look homeless, triggers a meltdown from several members. "Why would anyone wish to wear a 'hoodie' pulled up over their head on a mild day? Panhandler this morning, [name redacted] are right they sure are revenue raisers! 911 called."
It continues: "Yeah, whenever I see a hoodie pulled up like that it's suspicious. The individual is attempting to conceal their identity. On a mild day it's very suspicious." Another says he misses the "old days when a person loitering with a hood over their head on a warm day would be busted."


Cop Writes Man a Ticket for Broken Windshield as He’s Getting it Fixed

Shop owner David Sprague and his crew were astonished by the actions of this overzealous officer and said that there was no reason to pull Berlin over in the first place.

“We were just standing here in our door and were ready for his appointment and all of the sudden we see a cop out there writing the guy a ticket, We were pretty astounded to think that was what happened,” Sprague said.

“He had plenty of visibility on the driver side,” he added.

While the Sheriff’s Department has refused to comment on the issue, the American Civil Liberties Union of Colorado pointed out that this is an illustration of how police are more concerned with enforcing codes and writing tickets than actually protecting people.

“The more and more police officers see their role as ticketing as opposed to protecting public safety, that has a tendency to erode the public trust,” Denise Maes of the ACLU said.


California Becomes First State to Label Monsanto’s Roundup as a Carcinogen

According to a “notice of intent” issued last week by the Cal/EPA’s California’s Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA), the effort falls under California’s Proposition 65, in which the state is required to publish a list of chemicals known to cause cancer or birth defects or other reproductive harm.

The same law, otherwise known as the Safe Drinking Water and Toxic Enforcement Act of 1986, also requires that certain substances identified by the International Agency for Research on Cancer (IARC) — the World Health Organization’s cancer arm — be listed as known to cause cancer.

The state agency’s Sept. 4 announcement follows a classification of glyphosate by the IARC as “probably carcinogenic to humans” in March.

“Case-control studies of occupational exposure in the USA, Canada, and Sweden reported increased risks for non-Hodgkin lymphoma that persisted after adjustment for other pesticides,” the IARC said about the herbicide. There is also “convincing evidence” that it can cause cancer in laboratory animals.


"Monsanto continues to join with the agricultural industry in strongly disagreeing with IARC's classification. Glyphosate is an effective and valuable tool for farmers and other users, including many in the State of California. During the upcoming comment period, we will provide detailed scientific information to OEHHA about the safety of glyphosate and work to ensure that any potential listing will not affect glyphosate use or sales in California," Lord said.
