No honest judges
Once again, proving the saying that "there are no honest judges in Cook County, just lesser degrees of dishonesty," a cook county judge gave the sons of the current cook county medical examiner court supervision and a $1,000 fine for a bar fight in 2004 on the north side during which a battery was committed against an officer. Judges Crooks (HA!) is quoted as:
- "You came very close to torpedoing your careers," Crooks told the young men as they stood in court. "Do you understand?"
Yes, judge crooks, WE understand perfectly. With a criminal conviction the boys couldn't have followed in the grand county tradition of patronage hiring. Remember that boys and girls when you run across some lawyers named donaghue in the next few years.
- "You'd do well to apologize to your parents," Crooks said. "Your father is one of the most respected medical examiners in this country, and I know he and your mother raised you better than that."
Maybe the judge ought to list another person to apologize to: Like the POLICE OFFICER that the battery was committed against because the donoghue boys can't handle their liquor? Hey Frank? Investigate this one, please? It would tie into your recent article so well about how the number of batteries against police officers are climbing.
