    Can Patrick Daley Thompson do a GoFundMe?


  2. - Three Dimensional Checkers - Tuesday, Jul 11, 23 @ 9:09 am:

    Restitution is like mortgages — payment optional.


  3. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jul 11, 23 @ 9:19 am:

    In the end, a bad dude, Pat Fitzgerald, who stayed way-way too long, over 24 years in capacities of player, assistant coach and head coach… and Pat Fitzgerald allowed a festering culture to exist and continue, pretending “he didn’t know”

    After 24 years of culture you “cultivated” and wanted, you didn’t know what was going on, that’s far worse… and frankly…

    Fitzgerald, in a weasel move now wants the likes of Dan Webb to “look into” why Fitzgerald was fired for such a toxic culture. You can’t make this up.

    So… the problem with suing is “discovery” for Fitzgerald, and the more folks are deposed on 24 years, over three decades, of possible hazing, it will behoove NU to first remind Fitz, and if that doesn’t work, take him and his legacy down.

    Like I said, Pat Fitzgerald is a bad guy. Good riddance


  4. - ChicagoBars - Tuesday, Jul 11, 23 @ 9:27 am:

    To beat my broken drum on the state of the Illinois hospitality tax industry…if you adjust for inflation (which I think I heard has been quite high lately) the State of Illinois hotel tax revenues are still well behind 2019.

    Happy it’s recovered as much as it has, largely without much of the expected increase in Asian travel since China reopened but industry employment is outright lower since 2019 and if you do Econ 101 and adjust for inflation? Not back to 2019 either.


  5. - Big Dipper - Tuesday, Jul 11, 23 @ 9:28 am:

    Webb wasn’t able to do anything for Fox News and he won’t be able to for Fitzgerald either.


  6. - Donnie Elgin - Tuesday, Jul 11, 23 @ 9:32 am:

    “People with developmental disabilities living in Illinois’ publicly run institutions have been punched, slapped, hosed down, thrown about and dragged across rooms:…Peter Neumer, the IDHS inspector general, said his department regularly encounters cover-ups at facilities across the state,”

    This is a disgrace for the state and so sad that the most vulnerable are subject to abuse. Grace B. Hou, IDHS Secretary was appointed by JB in 2019 - she has been in charge of scandal after scandal. As stated before, JB has done a less-than-stellar job in managing state agencies. He needs to get a change at the top and to bring in AFSCME Council 31 to have meaningful change.


  7. - Big Tent - Tuesday, Jul 11, 23 @ 9:33 am:

    “Calls To Move Migrants Out Of Police Stations Grow Louder After Cops Accused Of Sexual Misconduct”
    With the need to identify, sign for, or even acknowledge who has filed the complaint due to “SafeTAct,” considerations, ANYONE could have filed an anonymous complaint…a purported victim, a political enemy, or even another cop. Signed affidavits, as previously required would cut to the chase very quickly.


  8. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jul 11, 23 @ 9:36 am:

    - Big Tent -

    Just so I’m clear, you don’t think anything has happened?


  9. - Rich Miller - Tuesday, Jul 11, 23 @ 9:38 am:

    ===ANYONE could have filed an anonymous complaint===

    Police in every jurisdiction that I know of accept and even encourage anonymous tips.


  10. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jul 11, 23 @ 9:43 am:

    ===accept and even encourage anonymous tips===

    This is where I’m heading.

    So it can’t be true unless it’s sworn? The victims must first publicly come forward for it to be true?


  11. - H-W - Tuesday, Jul 11, 23 @ 9:44 am:

    @ Big Tent

    Anonymity is about protecting the oppressed and weak. Sworn affidavits protect the powerful. In this case, we are talking about a child being impregnated. I don’t want to know the child’s name, and oppose making that child’s family name public.

    From the story: “Last week, one officer from the 10th (Ogden) Police District, 3315 W. Ogden Ave., was accused of impregnating a teenage girl, while other officers were accused of “improper sexual relations.”


  12. - Gravitas - Tuesday, Jul 11, 23 @ 9:53 am:

    Fitzgerald should have left Evanston for another position years ago when he had the opportunity.

    He ought to have been fired for the exceptionally poor performance of the football team last autumn and the preceding year, but NU had foolishly given him a long term contract. Fitzgerald’s response was to fire two assistants rather than accepting responsibility for the decline of the program.

    The Wildcats ought to have dumped him as soon as the hazing investigation was concluded. The initial two week suspension without pay looked clumsy and the new university president owns that. Ultimately, the university got it right the second time.

    Fitzgerald’s dismissal reminds me of his former coach and mentor, Gary Barnett, who wound up in trouble at Colorado for allowing a toxic atmosphere to pervade the Buffaloes football program.


  13. - supplied_demand - Tuesday, Jul 11, 23 @ 10:06 am:

    ==Big Tent==

    CPD has lost the benefit of the doubt based on leading the nation in reversed convictions. I wonder how many of those had sworn affidavits that the officers “verified” while under oath?

    You are asking for victims to go to the police to report abuse by THE POLICE. Does that sound like a winning strategy for migrant victims?

  14. - Big Dipper - Tuesday, Jul 11, 23 @ 10:54 am:

    Seeing as DNA tests will show if the cop impregnated the minor, it doesn’t really matter if the complaint is anonymous.


  15. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jul 11, 23 @ 11:08 am:

    ===Seeing as DNA tests===

    So only abuse exists (or existed) if a DNA test proves paternity?

    That will be truthful for paternity, and all things to this instance, the concern is if things are more widespread, deciding one test is the measure is too simplified, no matter which argument one chooses.


  16. - DuPage - Tuesday, Jul 11, 23 @ 11:11 am:

    ===From the story: “Last week, one officer from the 10th (Ogden) Police District, 3315 W. Ogden Ave., was accused of impregnating a teenage girl===

    DNA test would verify one way or another. It should be done ASAP.


  17. - Big Dipper - Tuesday, Jul 11, 23 @ 12:10 pm:

    Yeah, I think Willy misconstrued what I was saying. I support anonymous complaints in general but regarding the minor who was impregnated it’s kind of beside the point.


  18. - Oswego Willy - Tuesday, Jul 11, 23 @ 12:27 pm:

    ===but regarding the minor who was impregnated it’s kind of beside the point.===

    That’s exactly why even going down a “DNA” line of thought, both avenues of even acknowledging abuse, or trying to measure abuse under paternity, the idea of abuse or it’s measure is greater than a test of paternity


  19. - Big Dipper - Tuesday, Jul 11, 23 @ 12:49 pm:

    I never said only paternity is abuse. Any sexual relationship between the cops and the migrants is improper and depending on the circumstances possibly criminal.


  20. - btowntruth from forgottonia - Tuesday, Jul 11, 23 @ 2:57 pm:

    “The Wildcats ought to have dumped him as soon as the hazing investigation was concluded. The initial two week suspension without pay looked clumsy and the new university president owns that. Ultimately, the university got it right the second time.”

    Right there.
