Circuit Court of Cook County a Criminal Enterprise

with 4 comments


Judge Maddux of the Circuit Court of Cook County Law Division runs his division as a criminal enterprise, denying First Amendment Right to Redress of Grievances, to indigent plaintiffs, if he doesn’t like you, thinks you sue too much, or if you have filed suit against corrupt officials in Cook County or the State of Illinois. He uses the Sheriff’s office as a goon squad to harass and falsely arrest those that complain about his scheme and unconstitutional conduct. He should be impeached.

Chief Judge Evans of the Circuit Court of Cook County condones his conduct as does the office of the Clerk of the Circuit Court of Cook County, Dorothy Brown. Dorothy Brown has announced she is running for the office of President of the Board of Cook County Commissioners. I cannot support her under the circumstances of her misconduct.

I call upon President Stroger to remove Judge Timothy Evans as Chief Judge and replace him with an honest person. He has been Chief Judge too long and is too corrupt to continue in this position. Rumor has it he also participates in pay-to-play demanding 10% contributions to the political fund “Friends of Madigan” for every contract he grants concerning the Circuit Court of Cook County. I also call on the FBI to investigate both Judge Evans and Judge Maddux for RICO violations and corruption.

I also urge voters in Cook County to never againt vote for the ineffective and corrupt Sheriff Dart or for Dorothy Brown. We need leaders with vision, honesty, integrity, who act as professionals, admit mistakes, recognize and correct problems agressively, and are willing to meet with members of the public to solve problems. Status quo is no longer good enough. Change is required from the top down, starting with Todd Stroger, Cook County Board President.

Judge John Fleming – Supports Corrupt Police

with 2 comments


Circuit Court of Cook County Judge John Fleming continued the tradition of letting the police get away with anything and sentenced Chicago Police Officer Anthony Abbate, a 250 lb man, who brutally beat a 125 lb female bartender and was convicted of aggravated battery to only two years probation and NO prison time. The woman now suffers post-traumatic-stress, nightmares, and great fear.

This is another example of the outrageous favoratism towards cops and official misconduct of Cook County judges. They let officers lie through their teeth and even when they are caught red-handed on tape in criminal activity, they get away with it. Abbate even is still claiming he is innocent and the woman started the fight!! He shows no remorse! – And the judge didn’t take this into consideration?

The man was clearly seen on surveillance video from the bar in this aggravated battery against a defenseless and tiny woman. What more do you need to convince the judge that giving him a slap on the wrist condones this conduct?

Failure to jail this dirtbag gives the message that drunkenness excuses behavior, police can get away with anything, there is a double standard regarding police v. average citizens, and that Chicago remains as corrupt as ever. It depricates the seriousness of the offense and gives the green light to other officers to abuse citizens.

For another opinion see: http://radiochicagoland.blogspot.com/2009/06/fire-judge-john-j-fleming-and-jail.html

Until the public votes out those in office that condone this outrageous behavior of not just police, but more so of the courts such as Stroger, Daleys, Madigans, Dart, Beavers, Jones, Steele, and all their cronies, Chicago, C[r]ook County, and Illinois will remain lawless where the officials use citizens as their slaves and puppets in total disregard for humanity, for their own profit and fame. Deals will still be made behind closed doors and transparency will be hypothetical only.

I was beaten and choked by Sheriff Sgt. Anthony Salemi, he falsified his records, accused me of attacking him, committed perjury and I was wrongfully convicted. I received a two year prison sentence, served the sentence and parole before I was allowed to appeal in violation of the constitution. Fed. Judge Coar has even ruled that the IL Appellate Court is impeding my appeal! I am disabled and was abused and medically neglected in prison. Torture is the appropriate word. I am a non-violent pacifist. I have no prior record! I am a whistle blower against corrupt officials and police in Cook County, IL. This attack on me was retaliation for my complaints of corruption. I’m sure, if there is justice, the conviction will be overturned shortly,  and then I will bring the mother of all civil rights suits against this creep, the creeps that support him such as Sheriff Inv. Sofus, and Sheriff Dart.

There is no equal treatment here!  The Circuit Court of Cook County is a criminal enterprise. The U.S. Attorney should make indictments against these corrupt officials and police for felony violation of civil rights under color of law.

I hope the woman wins a huge award in her civil suit against him! I applaud CPD Supt. Jody Weiss in seeking his dismissal from the CPD. I just want to ask Supt. Weiss – Why won’t you have a meeting with me? The CPD beat me several times illegally, while I was in a wheelchair! I have pictures and your dept. of professional responsibity (internal affairs) did nothing!! I’ve requested meetings and you haven’t even had the courtesy to respond to me.

Dr. Shelton Appeals Wrongful Conviction Due to Misconduct of Judge Kazmierski

leave a comment »


I have now filed my Illinois Appellate Court appeal of my wrongful conviction for aggravated battery of a correctional officer. Sgt. Anthony Salemi had attacked me, falsified his records, committed perjury, and with the help of Nifong-like prosecutorial misconduct of ASAs Andrew Dalkin and John Maher and extreme judicial misconduct by Judge Joseph Kazmierski, I was convicted and sentenced to two years in the Illinois Dept. of Corrections plus one year of mandatory supervised release.

I served the minimum 6 months and the full supervised release and was not able to appeal due to illegal conduct of staff at the Cook County Dept. of Corrections and Illinois Dept. of Corrections where I was held and due to damage to my health requiring several hospitalizations within the last year since my release on March 27, 2008 from prison. The damage to my health was a result of torture at the CCDOC and IDOC by ignorant, sociopathic, poorly trained officers and incompetent medical staff (with the exception of Dr. Baker). The social workers even told me they purposely were told not to allow me to use the law library. My medications were withheld in illegal acts of willful indifference to medical needs.

I have informed the FBI and asked them to prosecute for felony conspiracy to violate rights under color of law, etc.

I will never forget the comment to me at CCDOC by Sgt. Molevetti “We got you on one made charge so I can write anything I want and get you on another.” Officer Levy said the same thing. It appears that falsification of records is common practice at CCDOC. We need to take him down and jail him too!

As soon as I win this one, the mother of all civil rights suits will be filed against these creeps. Any officer who has aided and abetted this wrongful conviction is a target in my book to be arrested, removed as an officer, and jailed for felony conspiracy to violate rights under color of law under federal law.

I strongly suggest that ANY officer or CCDOC staff who has knowledge about this wrongful conviction march over to the FBI on Roosevelt Road, ask for a duty agent and confess and turn in the corrupt officers and sergeants. The time is NOW to clean up the CCDOC and get rid of decayed and dead wood! If you don’t turn them in, you are part of the corruption and are condoning it! I have no sympathy for you!

Judge James L. Rhodes Finds Deputies Not Credible

with one comment


SHERIFF DEPUTIES COMMIT PERJURY

Cook County Sheriff Deputies Rebecca Doran and Maureen Caliendo, with the full encouragement of Assistant Chief Lyons and the Cook County State’s Attorney falsely arrested Dr. Shelton, maliciously prosecuted Dr. Shelton, for aggravated battery, but Dr. Shelton was found not guilty by a responsible and honest, intelligent judge, Honorable Judge James L. Rhodes, who found the deputies’ testimony “not credible”.

During trial, Hon. Judge Rhodes was fair, listened intently to both sides, weighed the evidence carefully, was intellectually honest, exhibited an impressive ability to see the whole picture, displayed an excellent fund of knowledge about the law, had a calm and reassuring demeanor, kept excellent control of the trial and his courtroom, and asked appropriate questions of the witnesses even when the State or defense failed to ask such questions, in order to clarify the facts. His instructions and speech were clear, polite, and easy to understand.
I highly recommend him as a judge and believe he should be promoted to a position of authority. I believe it is unlikely that he would become corrupt.
