Los Angeles police Department: LAPD investigating rape claim against Unwashed Negro Crotch Derrick Rose
The Los Angeles Police Department confirmed the investigation to The New York Daily News.
“I’m innocent. I felt like I didn’t do anything wrong,” Rose said Monday at the New York Knicks media day, the Daily News reported. He said he hasn’t been contacted by the police.
A civil case seeking $21.5 million from Rose and two others is set to go to trial Oct. 4. Known as “Jane Doe” in the court filings, the 30-year-old Los Angeles woman originally filed a lawsuit in August 2015, accusing Rose and two other men of breaking into her apartment and raping her in 2013.
The judge hearing the case has said the accuser will not be able to remain anonymous during the trail.

U.S. attorney: Drag on police morale from McDonald scandal to blame in part for violence BECAUSE WE CANNOT BLAME BLACK VIOLENCE ON THE CAUSE
Speaking to the City Club of Chicago, Fardon said fallout over the release of dashboard camera video of a white police officer fatally shooting 17-year-old McDonald exacerbated what was already an unacceptable level of bloodshed.
Within weeks of the video's release last November, police Superintendent Garry McCarthy was fired, the U.S. Justice Department announced it would conduct a sweeping investigation of the department's use of force policies and a new order went into effect requiring officers to fill out lengthy forms when making street stops of suspected gang members. All three events moved the needle on police morale, Fardon said.
"I believe there was a hit on CPD morale and a drag on officers' willingness to conduct stops," Fardon said. "Some gang members apparently felt that they could get away with more, so more bullets started flying."
Fardon's comments came as part of a larger speech about the role played by the U.S. attorney's office in investigating accusations of police wrongdoing as well as trying to quell the city's unrelenting gun violence — an issue that has brought unflattering national attention to Chicago and even become a part of the presidential race.
Fardon revealed for the first time he's been meeting recently with leaders of nonprofit groups in hard-hit communities who have complained they're not working together closely enough as needed because of competition over funding.

Dominique Sharpton, Al Sharpton's eldest child, tries to win the NEGRO LOTTERY CHECK but gets caught FAKING!
The Rev. Al Sharpton’s daughter admitted in a damning legal deposition that she danced, pranced and jetted around to romance her beau after supposedly suffering permanent damage to her ankle when she stumbled in a city pothole.
Dominique Sharpton gave the deposition, a transcript of which was obtained by The Post, in her $5 million lawsuit against the city — and it reveals startling new details about her escapades following the injury.
She admitted that she changed into party clothes and attended a two-hour gospel concert in honor of her father’s 60th birthday just hours after the incident at Broome Street and Broadway on Oct. 2, 2014.
“I was walking to cross the street, and my foot went into something and caused me to fall,” Dominque Sharpton, 30, testified during her July deposition, according to documents obtained this week through a Freedom of Information request.
“I heard a snap,” recalled Sharpton, who said she was wearing flat boots at the time.
City lawyer Michelle Fox asked, “Were you able to attend the concert that night?”

Sharpton acknowledged that she changed into a dress and “some shoes . . . probably black, flat shoes” to go to the party, before finally heading to the emergency room.
She also griped during the three-hour grilling that she can no longer “dive off a diving board, go skiing . . . or go run marathons.”
But when Fox asked if she was “a runner before,” Sharpton admitted she wasn’t. “Not necessarily,” she said. “But if I, you know, if I needed to do it and exercising or something like that, I was capable of it. Now, I can’t.”
Meanwhile, at the hospital, “they said nothing was broken,” she conceded.
She underwent physical therapy, wore a therapeutic boot, used crutches for a few weeks and got an injection after swelling in her ankle didn’t subside.
She eventually had surgery for ligament tears — but the injuries didn’t stop her from visiting her fiancé in Miami a dozen times a year, dancing with her dad in New Orleans, working out, touring the country in a play, and, as previously reported by The Post, hiking a mountain in Bali and dancing in heels.
Trying to explain away the heels, Sharpton claimed under oath that she “can only wear them for a short amount of time.”
“It’s really annoying,” she said.
She tried to downplay her two-hour hike in Bali, saying she was helped by two people and “had to take a lot of breaks.”
“There were times I didn’t think I was going to make it,” Sharpton said.
A city Law Department spokesman declined to comment. Sharpton’s lawyer did not return a request for comment.
Charlotte, North Carolina Police Shooting - Typical Negro Nonsense - Keith Scott WAS carrying a stolen gun, police say – and his wife filed for a restraining order against him saying he was armed, violent and had threatened to kill her
- Keith Scott's gun had been reported stolen, authorities said on Monday
- A breaking and entering suspect told officials he had sold him the gun
- His wife Rakeyia got a restraining order in October last year, records show
- She wrote: 'He carries a 9mm black' and said he had hit her and a child
- Scott, 43, was shot and killed Tuesday after a confrontation with Charlotte, North Carolina police

Keith Scott was carrying a stolen gun when he was shot and killed during a confrontation with police in Charlotte, North Carolina, authorities have said.
The gun was reported stolen after a breaking and entering, according to the police.
A breaking and entering suspect told agents at the bureau of alcohol, tobacco, firearms and explosives that he had sold the gun to Scott, ABC 11 reported Monday. He is now in custody.

A disgruntled lawyer wearing what appeared to be Nazi paraphernalia & driving a Porsche who had numerous weapons randomly shot at drivers in Houston - 6 shot & wounded, 3 others hurt; gunman killed by police
KPRC2 has confirmed the owner of that vehicle is 46-year-old attorney Nathan DeSai

Charles "Cork" Walgreen III dead at 80 - drugstore CEO who grew drug store chain - His son Tad Walgreen and Tad's wife Loren Walgreen both dies from drug overdoses
He died Sept. 26 at his home in Lake Forest, Illinois, according to a statement from Deerfield, Illinois-based Walgreens Boots Alliance Inc. No cause was given.
He led Walgreen Co. as chief executive officer starting in 1971, adding the post of chairman in 1976. He stepped down as CEO in 1998 and retired as chairman the following year. During his tenure, the retailer reported 23 straight years of sales and earnings increases and quadrupled the number of stores to more than 2,400.
It was a big turnaround from 1970 when, according to trade publication Chain Store Age, Walgreen had "assumed many of the characteristics of the moribund A&P chain."
The company was involved in so many unrelated activities -- including Wag restaurants and department stores in Mexico -- that drugstore managers "were sort of fighting for attention," Charles Walgreen said, according to a 2000 story in Drug Store News.
Walgreen's strategy was to refocus the chain on the drugstore business and modernize it, focusing on pharmaceuticals, health and beauty aids as well as photo service. He reconfigured the supply chain and upgraded the stores. Gone were the in-store optical centers and grocery aisles along with the company's restaurants and south-of-the-border retailers.
By the 1980s, Walgreens stores were appearing in urban areas around the country, often concentrated with several stores in a relatively small area. The 1,000th store opened in 1984 and sales passed $10 billion in 1995.
Walgreen in 2012 bought a 45 percent stake in Bern, Switzerland-based Alliance Boots Holdings Ltd. for $6.7 billion and in 2014 paid about $15.3 billion for the remainder of European pharmacy chain.

Tattoos for Hair Club President - Paul Pagan, 32 - charged in murder at Chicago's Tourist Attraction Millennium Park - Peter Fabbri, 54, of Berwyn was murdered
A nutball with a record of gun convictions has been charged with fatally shooting another man outside Millennium Park over the weekend, according to police. Thanks to Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart & Illinois State Senator Bill Cunningham that pushed laws for arrestees to be early released over and over again... another criminal had the chance to kill....

Paul Pagan, 32, was charged Monday in the death of Peter Fabbri, 54, of Berwyn, police said.
Pagan has more than 30 arrests on his record and was convicted twice for pointing a gun during an argument, police said. He was wanted on a warrant for an earlier gun crime when he killed Fabbri, according to First Deputy Superintendent Kevin Navarro,
Fabbri was walking with two women around 7:35 p.m. Saturday when he got into a dispute with Pagan at the northeast corner of Michigan Avenue and Monroe Drive, police said.
The altercation became physical and Pagan shot Fabbri in the head, police said. Fabbri was pronounced dead at Northwestern Memorial Hospital a day later.
Fabbri's sister, Shelly Fabbri, said she chased the shooter as he fled on a bike.
"I chased him through the street, tried to hold the bike down," she told reporters. "His girlfriend comes and punched me and ripped my shirt. I wind up on the ground and another security guard came to help me and call the police."
Diane White, a security guard at the School of the Art Institute, said she was crossing Monroe toward the park when she saw two men scuffling with each other and heard a shot.
"As I came across (the street), I saw them fighting over here," White said. "At first I heard a 'bang' like a firecracker. Then I saw a gentleman fall," she said. "I'm like, 'Oh man, somebody got shot.' "
Fabbri's niece, Nina Parks, said she was with her mother, Fabbri and his girlfriend at a wine-tasting when her uncle was shot.
"My uncle ... was a huge-hearted man and was always there for anyone if he could be," she said on a GoFundMe page that had raised more than $4,000 by midafternoon Monday.
The 33-year-old man was in stable condition at Munster Community Hospital, according to a news release from state police.
About 7:20 p.m., Hammond police were called to do a well-being check on the man at a residence in the 1500 block of 177th Place, state police said. An acquaintance had told police the man had been making suicidal comments.
Officers arrived and began talking to the man, but talks later broke down and the man went back inside the home, police said.
Officers noticed that once inside, he had picked up firearms, prompting the officers to return toward their vehicles, state police said.
The man, at one point, shot one of the firearms inside his home. After further attempts to negotiate with the man proved unsuccessful, the man came out of the home with a shotgun and an automatic handgun, according to state police.
The man "lowered the shotgun toward officers," and a Hammond officer responded by shooting at the man one time and striking him, police said.
No police or other citizens were injured, police said.
According to the news release, the investigation is ongoing and is expected to take some time to complete.

Negro Robbers Try to Mug Pizza Delivery Boy Who Turns Out to Be an Ex-NFL Linebacker Napoleon Harris III - Wow go from the NFL to delivering pizza... that has to be a pay cut!
Napoleon Harris III, the former NFL linebacker and Illinois state senator, is the owner of two Chicago-area Beggars pizza franchises and was sitting in one of them right before closing time when a last minute call came in, The Daily Mail reported.
Harris offered to deliver the pizza himself since the crew was overwhelmed, but he didn’t know that the house was vacant.
Harris arrived at the house, located on the 15800 block of Paulina Avenue in Harvey, Illinois when one of the robbers came to greet him, The Twin Cities Pioneer Press reported.
Three others emerged from the bushes to try and take him down, but they failed in their attempts to do so.
“They put a chokehold on the senator, but to no avail. They were really trying to choke him to death, and he was just too strong. He out-powered all four of them,” spokesperson for Harvey police Sean Howard said to CBS 2. “As they were all beating on him, one guy just went out of his way and really hit him hard, and Napoleon never moved.”
The men managed to take the pizza and Harris’s wallet before they fled in a Chevy Tahoe, but Harris followed them to a lumber mill before he called the cops.
The men fled the scene and left the Tahoe behind, which was registered to a Georgia man named Lester Jones. Jones was later found dead in Georgia.
Police were able to track down all four suspects and bring them into custody.
Malik Mayer was charged with murder and financial transaction card fraud for using Jones’s ATM card September 15.
A juvenile was also arrested but he could not be identified.
Lawrence Hines was arrested on charges of murder at a Georgia mental health facility later in September.
A fourth person from Gary, Indiana is expected to face charges for mugging Harris.

When Chicago spent its pension money on the mayor's pet projects A decade ago, city leaders acted like we didn't have a care in the world.
The year was 2004—and what a glorious time it was!
We were in the midst of a fabulous real estate bubble that sent property taxes flowing into the city's coffers like champagne at an Emanuel fund-raiser.
Amid the good times, a few wealthy friends of then mayor Richard Daley threw a lavish party in the Pritzker Pavilion at the recently completed Millennium Park.
"Women wearing serious jewelry and stunning gowns were welcomed upon their arrival by 'Adam and Eve' greeters draped in leaves and dragging a snake," the Sun-Times reported about the $1,000-a-ticket fund-raiser for the park. "In two big tents, Wolfgang Puck Catering served a dinner of beets and goat cheese, asparagus with prosciutto, potato leek soup with caviar, lobster and beef tenderloin with truffles. Tables were topped with white cloths and tall silver urns holding magnolia leaves; 10-foot-tall water walls were placed through the tents."
Ah, yes, the good life.

Retiree Healthcare Message
Retiree Healthcare Message
The MEABF board was given a presentation by Barb Malloy on Retiree Healthcare.
The city has worked with Blue Cross Blue Shield and is in the works to be the plan sponsor and ensure members of all four funds are OFFERED insurance for the year 2017.
How it will work from the presentation we received is the city may issue a letter saying they are cancelling retiree insurance (because Chicago is getting out of retiree insurance) you will then get a letter asking if you want to OPT in for this plan if you choose the plan BCBS is offering.
When you check the rates you will see they are higher than last years, that is due to the city not subsidizing any part of retiree healthcare. The deal will be solely from BCBS and covered by the retiree and more than likely be deducted from your pension if you choose the plan.
The city has said they will have counselors that you can reach out to who will ask you questions and based on your medical history and conditions will advise you on what plan might be better for you. I.e. Good health and no meds, the exchange might be a better choice than the offered plan by BCBS and so on.
I realize these rates are extremely high, keep in mind there is still a legal case on retiree healthcare (Underwood) and how that has and will play into things will be interesting.
A lot of the retiree healthcare issues are based on the fact it comes across as an extremely complicated process. Exchanges, open enrollments, different coverage levels, plan A/plan B etc. To be honest it would scare me having to get insurance on my own.
I have implored the city to work with retirees on this issue and treat them with respect, after all the retirees are who made Chicago what it is.
I have implored the city to work with retirees on this issue and treat them with respect, after all the retirees are who made Chicago what it is.
This is going to be a time sensitive issue with the exchanges opening Oct 15th and a lot of you will have to make a big decision.
As I find out more and definite details I will pass them along.
Brent Tyssen harged in overdose death of Chicago Police Officer Theresa Almanza's step-daughter, 18 year old Sydney Schergen
Almanza, a Chicago Police Department gang-crimes officer accustomed to solving crimes involving other people’s families, set out to seek justice for her own stepdaughter.
More than a year after the death, the man suspected of selling ecstasy to the 18-year-old Schergen was charged Friday with drug-induced homicide.
Brent Tyssen, 22, was ordered held in lieu of $400,000 bail Saturday, accused of selling one gram of ecstasy, also known as MDMA or molly, to Schergen on May 30, 2015, for $100. She overdosed on the drug the next day.
An 18-year-old woman — Schergen’s cousin — also has been arrested but was charged as a juvenile because she was 17 at the time of Schergen’s death, Cook County prosecutors said.
Tyssen — who smiled at his parents during Saturday’s bail hearing — has admitted selling the drug to Schergen, prosecutors said.

Oak Lawn Illinois Tells CHUCK E CHEESE - Your Negro Customers are OUT OF CONTROL - Enhance the security - The restaurant already has TWO OAK LAWN UNIFORMED POLICE OFFICERS INSIDE AND ONE UNIFORMED POLICE OFFICER OUTSIDE IN A MARKED SQUAD CAR
Black Shootings, Black Brawls, Uncontrolled Black Children - Another public venue BLACKS are DESTROYING AS USUAL! Oak Lawn IL Issues a SEVERE NEGRO ALERT
Chuck E. Cheese, the chain of family friendly arcade and pizza joints, bills itself as a place where "a kid can be a kid."
But in Oak Lawn, where for years the restaurant on 95th Street has been plagued by fights and disorderly behavior, village officials are questioning whether it's a place where a kid should even visit.
"It's a big problem for the safety of children when you have an establishment that caters to children where this is a constant issue," said Oak Lawn Mayor Sandra Bury, noting that Oak Lawn police received 55 calls for service there through the first eight months of this year. "Would I take children there? I don't know."
The restaurant has had a reputation for attracting a "pretty volatile mix" for decades, although no Oak Lawn official would hazard a guess as to the reason.
Trustee Terry Vorderer, a retired member of the Oak Lawn Police Department who now represents the district where the Chuck E. Cheese outlet is located, said it was a problem even back when he was chief of patrol.
"It seems the type of incidents that take place there, other than the routine thefts of cell phones, things of that nature, are more domestic-related," he said. "They blow up pretty darn quick, and when they get out of control, people get hurt. Police officers get hurt."
Since 2011, Oak Lawn police have made more than two dozen arrests there, mostly for battery and disorderly conduct.
In one 2012 incident, two men fired multiple shots into a car parked in the Chuck E. Cheese lot, according to news reports. A 20-year-old man with alleged gang ties who was sitting inside the car is believed to have been the intended target. He was uninjured, and the gunmen escaped.
Over the years, the village has worked with CEC Entertainment, the parent company of Chuck E. Cheese, and Kimco Realty, which owns the shopping center, to enhance safety at that location.
"The management of Chuck E. Cheese has actually been really responsive," Bury said. "Anything we ask of them, they pretty much do."
To date, CEC has installed prominent surveillance cameras and monitors throughout the restaurant; hung "Rules of Conduct" signs in three different areas of the establishment; rearranged the interior setup to increase visibility and sight lines, reduce congestion and increase traffic flow; and added brighter, color-true lighting, a company spokeswoman said.
CEC also pays to have multiple Oak Lawn police officers work a security detail inside the restaurant every Thursday through Sunday, and in 2014, it voluntarily relinquished its liquor license.
In a statement, CEC Entertainment acknowledged that incidents had occurred at their Oak Lawn location, but said it had taken numerous actions to improve the guest experience and was committed to continuing to do so.
"We understand that there have been incidents at local businesses, including ours, and we always work with the local community to ensure a safe and wholesome environment at our restaurants," CEC spokeswoman Christelle Dupont said in a statement.
Even Kimco, which owns the shopping center, has done its part to improve security at the location — enhancing exterior lighting and paying for a police car to sit in the parking lot outside the store, according to Bury.
Yet the problems still persist.
"Everything they've done to date just isn't keeping kids safe" Bury said. "And if kids aren't safe, we have a problem with that."
The most recent violent incident at the restaurant occurred on Aug. 27 when a few family members were involved in a physical altercation.
A male patron head-butted his niece after she spat in the face of his girlfriend, according to a police report. The niece allegedly retaliated by punching him in the face before fleeing the scene, police said.
When an Oak Lawn officer tried to detain the man, he yelled an expletive and shoved the officer, the report states. Police arrested both him and his niece, whom they caught up to at a Walgreens in Evergreen Park, and charged each with battery and disorderly conduct, according to reports.
Immediately upon learning of the fracas, Bury wrote the village trustees a letter alerting them of the incident and asking for their opinions on how to handle it.
"We're taking this very, very seriously. I can't tell you how seriously," she said. "It's really important that people feel good about going to shop in Oak Lawn, and that people feel good about bringing their children to a children's place. We have to keep these kids safe. That's really what it's about."
While revocation of the restaurant's business license is an option, Bury and the village trustees preferred first to take their concerns to the company's executives, who agreed to fly in from Irving, Texas for a meeting two weeks ago.
"I told the president of Chuck E. Cheese (Roger Cardinale), I said, 'Look I don't know what you're going to do. I don't know the answers. I don't know how you solve your problems in that store, but it ain't my problem to solve them for you,'" Vorderer said. "It's my job to represent the community."
Both Vorderer and Bury said the meeting with the company's president and senior vice president was productive, and that executives from CEC Entertainment promised a swift response.
"They are committed to doing whatever it takes to make this location safe for children," Bury said. "They have agreed to, at their expense, hire a security expert to review what's been done to date."
Vorderer said the company had agreed to provide a security report to the board by Tuesday. The company will then present a revised version of the security plan — after village officials have provided feedback and the company has incorporated any suggested tweaks — at the first regular board meeting in October.
From there, the board will decide how to proceed, although it appears likely they'll permit Chuck E. Cheese to implement the plan and see if it has the intended effect of enhancing security at the location before taking any action against the business.
"I'm not going to turn a blind eye to it if there are more issues," Vorderer said, "but I'm giving a responsible corporation and a successful business in Oak Lawn an opportunity to solve our concerns."
Is Emanuel already sending a message to Dart?
NBC poll has Sheriff Tom Dart crushing Emanuel by 31 points in hypothetical matchup.. However, numerous sources claim Emanuel has a bombshell report that may scare Dart off from running entirely.. Source claims a top ranking aide to Emanuel told a local reporter that Sheriff Tom Dart allegedly covered up a sexual assault by his former Chief of Staff on a black female Sheriff employee.. Despite these salacious rumors it appears Sheriff Tom Dart is poised to be a top contender in the 2019 Chicago Mayoral election.
In a series of hypothetical match-ups, the poll showed potential 2019 mayoral candidate and Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart besting Emanuel by a nearly two-to-one margin, 61 percent to 31 percent, if the election were held today. According to the poll, Emanuel was also beat out by 2015 mayoral challenger and Cook County Commissioner Chuy Garcia by a margin of 51 percent to 36 percent. Additionally, Emanuel barely beat out potential 2019 challenger and Ald. Roderick Sawyer by a margin of 39 percent to 37 percent.
