They said that they don't look good that it looked like an anti Kat post <hes> once I realized that I had offended some of my fellow officers I immediately deleted the post <hes>, and I apologize to those who had reached out to me, and I also think them for you know looking out for me. <hes> I. Know that right now. At that time, emotions were very high, or all the officers <hes> with everything that was going on, not protest that was happening throughout the country. <hes> the following day I received a phone call from direct captain <hes> before he could explain himself I explained that I why he's calling me <hes>, but at no point did I share that pulse with malicious intent or Ernie intent to harm or fund any of my fellow officers <hes>, but the captain stated that the Commissioner was highly upset. She was embarrassed <hes> and then I did express the him that I understand <hes>. How she you know. She could be <hes> embarrassed in offended <hes> especially after she honored hardship for me, <hes> the Commissioner has done a lot for me. All my career <hes> my one year career in the in the department. Excuse me. On the day after the phone call with the captain, I met with the Commissioner Commissioner Clap. <hes> there was a few deputies in the office as well a few captains, and I went in with my us union present Joe Gentile. <hes> in the meeting the Commissioner. <hes> basically told me that you know I embarrassed her and that she was highly upset with me. Especially after honoring <hes> to hardship, I apologize to her and I and I told her that I understand <hes> where my fellow officers are coming from, but at no time did I post that with militias and another time? <hes> did I think that might be as anti cop. <hes> I told her that I. You know I. Should apologize to all the officers. I'm sorry till the up to supervisors who advocates for me? I think that they deserve an apology from embarrassing <hes>. <hes> and she went on to tell me that people had called up to the. Commissioner's Office and And when I see people I, mean my officers and they were upset and they wanted me terminated <hes>. She did say that she thinks very highly of me in the. She didn't want to terminate me and then you'd have to figure out a way to fix this. <hes> after I left that meeting I consulted with my union president Joe Gentile. <hes> after control than what time we both agree that it'd be a good idea to go on a local high bdo. IBP Oh page. And, put up. The public apology to my fellow officers <hes> I put up the apology <hes> later that day and <hes> once I put up the apology I had a few officers that you know basically told me it's okay. No where he's. We all make mistakes. <hes> you know we. We have to stick together. Then received a lot of <hes> insults and threats on there as well. I'm sorry to interrupt you I know there's a little more to this story, and I do want to give you a chance to tell it, but I need to clarify a couple of things that you've already said. You said that the commissioner said to fix it in the mass live reporting today. She denied that she had said fix. It had a quote that said quote. Once you post something. It's out there and you can't retract it. That post was hurtful to many of her co-workers. What do you make of the dispute between your sense that she told you to fix it and her saying, but that is not what she said. I'm when I was in that meeting. I recall those words like he needs to figure out fix this. <hes> and I remember being. Sorry go ahead. No no, that's okay. Finish your thought, please. I'm I'm commenting on that? Okay, also, you said that the commissioner honored hardship for you. Some of our listeners may not know what that means. Can I please ask you to explain that? I'm so dern. The pandemic the kits <hes> for being home schooled and <hes> I. also have my father who has cancer that I for <hes> so i. Put it in a re. I spoke with my captain I was on the midnight shift. I was working twelve eighty a <hes>. And <hes> I wrote up a hardship after consulting with the CAP, and he told me to put in a hardship I wrote to the Commissioner asking to go back to four to twelve <hes> as a patrol officer. And <hes> in order for me to homeschool my three children and <hes> look after my father. <hes> a few days later. She authored my hardship while I'm and. Threw me in the TV as a FDU detective. So made you a detective? Yes, Ma'am! Okay thank you now after you posted the apology, you got mixed results or responses from that my apology, my understanding was ultimately you withdrew the apology. You then later were part of a larger picture that was taken of the force, and then on that same day. Receive News that you could either resign or be fired. Do I have those events correct? Yeah! And so the firing was about a week and a half ago. Yeah, it was on Friday to nine hundred. And did it come as a surprise to you on that day? Yes, it did <hes> after spoke with <hes>. Some of the supervisors <hes> in the department. They had basically told me you know lay low. Just try to blend in you know, take this as a <hes> small bumping your career and a lesson learned and <hes>. You know you'll get through this. Why do you think you were fired? At this point. You know I I am I don't know. Like the Commissioner as the Commissioner stated <hes>. She was pressured by the mayor I think it was <hes>. It was driven my politics <hes>, but that's as far as I can comment on that. Were there discussions within the police force during the the weeks of the protests prior to you posting your Social Media Post. About the protests, the movements the discussions about police brutality. Were you talking with with fellow detectives or other officers about that? Did you have a sense of where they stood into? They have a sense of where you stood. I'm no. We didn't talk much about it I. Mean I had one one officer life spoke with that was very closely with in regards to the protest and I think we both stood in support of the black lives. Matter Movement. And other than that I. didn't I didn't really? Have conversations about the protests with other fellow officers. And after you posted your apology, why do you believe that some officers came back? <hes> with strong responses <hes> threatening language. I think is the term that you used it, Cetera. Why do you believe the apology was not sufficient to kind of to begin to heal the controversy around your post? <hes>. I believe emotions are just very high at this time. You know like I can't tell you why they felt offended. <hes> again I had some even had some that some officers at attack me. Flirt so, we reached out to the Springfield police to either appear on the show or to provide comment commissioner share a clap route sent us a statement, said quote. This was Miss Fuentes a second infraction during her probationary period complaints about her social media posts came from co workers who were hurt by it, and questioned her stance on the quote that advocated shooting police officers. It was my decision to terminate her employment and quote. What does she mean by a second infraction?

"Nine hundred ninety nine and moved to the Senate in Nineteen ninety-one for the last eleven years. He's been president of the Senate where one of his first acts was shepherding through the impeachment of former Illinois Governor Rod Blagojevich in that role. He helped end the two in your budget. Stalemate under Republican governor. Bruce Rounder and worked to give fellow Democrat. Jay Pritzker a string of wins in his first year from legalized marijuana to a gambling expansion engine to a graduated income tax proposal that goes to voters later this year. I sat down with John Color Tin and talk about his long career in Illinois politics and how he feels to be stepping away away from Springfield after four decades. Well I got elected when I was thirty. And I'm seventy one so it's my whole adult life. It seems you know we've been down there and it's really been fun. I mean there's been so many Really Neat things People I've served with nine hundred and and eighty seven people Past five hundred eighty three bills What was achieved sponsor? And it's just been amazing. I mean everything the thing from When I first started you know getting involved in in Believe it or not the first big bill had had to do with car seats. We had this marriage in seventy nine and we had babies ninety one eighty two eighty three and the first one carried. My wife carried her home from the hospital. there's only one state in the nation that had a car seat bill Soon as we had that baby home we realized we got to put the baby in a carseat so we my wife started loaner program for car. Seats are how found out what about I passed a bill to require people to wear have their kids in car seats and it was a lesson because it was a bill that was very limited just just the parent in just their own Car knowing that that's what you have to do and later later you kind of improve So that led the seatbelt law. Believe it or not there was only fifteen percent of people wearing their seatbelts In the early eighties. Pass that bill. Not Not easy again was a secondary fans just to get started so that's been very rewarding and bunch of More bills after that as well as a lot of interesting people if you had to narrow it down to one or two pieces of legislation. You're most proud of what would they be anything where you literally save people's lives as pretty par for you know you press a button and you know that certain number of People are literally the fatality. RATE'S GONNA fall or even in the I've I've never been a smoker. I kinda hate tobacco. I bet after those people the only people that are really happy that I'm retiring are the tobacco industry because I just I just think that the the lives and the money that it costs so I've been pretty proud of those things as well The you know there's been a lot of things I mean. I worked on death penalty reforms before for we abolished the death. Penalty am worked on the school funding. Formula have pretty recently which allowed for Chicago to get started to get a fair amount of money that they but they that they have? In fact I was around. We stabbed the Chicago school reforms in the first up local school councils back in the late eighties. So it's been fun But it's also time to to move on when you first came to springfield lie. Deciding was a much more bipartisan affair. Air and when you look at the at Springfield today do you think the pendulum has swung too far well. I'd like to distinguish ourselves from what's happened happen at the national level Especially this last year now You know we've had forced bipartisanship because the first twenty eight years was Republican governor and democratic legislatures. Six all but two years one there was one two year period where they control it But then After that we we did have the Begovic cheers and Quinn Years And and so we were One party going around four years. Four some bipartisanship This last year though we really did come about at the end of with a lot of support from the Republicans and we had a budget that was balanced. We had to take some votes on some tough taxes with Republican Republican supporters on so And I my experience having been in the minority in the Senate for ten years was When I got to be Senate Senate President I just said you know what we're not GONNA get outvoted. We're a super majority. Why not work with these guys some ideas from the other party? You'll get a bit of work product art. And so I've I've tried to try to keep that as a principal when you think back to the time when governor rounder was an office of course there was a seven eight hundred thirty six day budget impasse during that period of time. Where would you rank that budget? Impasse when you think about the biggest challenges you face during your time in spring oil. It's it was it was horrible Because what we did people say. You didn't have a budget. Well actually. Unfortunately we did have a budget because we we were funding schools rules. We didn't like stop in force ourselves to get a balanced budget. We overspent for two and a half years some six billion dollars each year which ran Hannah bills. The income tax fell from five percent down to three point seven five. We never made up the difference. We kept on spending so so it was. It was really bad and we tried to you know. The speaker didn't even meet with the guy I did. Try to meet with the governor. On a number of occasions we just he just had such animus towards the unions and Madigan himself and spend all that money demonizing Madigan. It was it was horrible and eventually we did actually get the grand bargain with Christina. Donio my Republican counterpart who both of us got elected the same day. I work with very well. We just said you know what we're going to start doing our Our stuff independent of the speaker and the governor and it led to eventually A balanced budget Over the objections of the governor time time many people say it was your unique set of skills that finally broke the budget stalemate. How did you see your role in that case? Well it wasn't just just me was senator rebellious matter of factually initiated. The idea of working together to pass bills on these bills were the these were bills that that Republicans didn't like and the Democrats didn't like there were things dealing with tort reform or workers comp changes that are party didn't want their taxes of their problems and we just wanted to show. Oh that this is crazy what we do is you know we were underfunded higher. Ed People were leaving our state to go to other schools. I mean it was. We weren't paying social service providers. I mean it was just horrible and we didn't need to do that. It was unnecessary so that was a big deal to get people to come together at the end. I think it was so tough to do but in once it happened then when we had governor Spitzer commend. That's how that's what led to this. Bipartisan phenomenal year. We had last year of of of those major pieces of legislation. Where do you think Illinois will continue to fill the fallout from that budget impasse? Well well if you look at our budget We had to borrow a whole bunch of money to pay our vendors and built into the budget every year is like a mortgage payment jeff to pay for the legacy of those past the past years. That's why the governor's proposed and passed All Forty of the Senate Democrats voted for the constitutional amendment. That's it's on the ballot which will if passed a lead to since we also passed the rates to be included Lead to money and that money would be used directly to pay down Those all those all those bills Former governor Rauner was a political neophyte. We have another political neophyte in office now governor Jay Pritzker. What's your assessment of what he how's he's doing so far and what he still needs to learn? I was surprised when he ran for Governor Primary We had one one of our colleagues Daniel. BISS running I did not get involved in in that primary but I had members. I have dinner every night when we're in session with not not lobbyists but legislators to get to know people socially and everyone would would say you know it's interesting this Guy Pritzker who is really working and he's really league showing up and he's not Come across some billionaire. He's coming across. The Guy Really wants to learn and that was his attitude from the start It didn't hurt hurt tab all that money of course that he used the front his campaigns But he also really really think Impress people in the same thing was true true as a rookie and never having been a government. This last year I think he was willing to take advice. and I think proved that that We were willing after around a lot of leeway when you think about the last two governors in Illinois. These are both very wealthy men who are able to put their their own money into their campaigns. What do you think about the future of Illinois and the way money may play into? WHO's able to run for office? You know ideally really And the governor did provide money for the Democrats in the legislature. Ideally though I think to keep the independence of the of the General Assembly the Legislative Branch from the executive branch. It would be better if that wasn't necessary. And you know when we run campaigns both Republicans and Democrats got and And and try to raise money and we raise money from the traditional groups who care about the policies the unions care about the policies especially after governor rounders for years right so they donate dryer. Laura's I care about the policy so they donate And so there's there's enough money there for people to run campaigns and it would be best if it didn't You know come from Just super Wealthy people or even in this matter from a governor himself. You told France spillman at the Times Friday that Mayor Lori lightfoot and other Newbie to politics still has a lot to learn and in the spring legislative session. She didn't get what she wanted from Springfield. I'm a real estate transfer tax a final plan for for Chicago Casino. What do you think Mir lightfoot needs to master in order to be successful? I let me clarify I. I only pointed out that she didn't have the advantage. Just like we were talking about the two governors of having been in government before right and so and especially not springfield which is totally different than than Chicago Coggins City Council and. She's on learning her but she I think she's doing very well In some regards She she came down to Springfield right away from the start and she was a Rockstar It's just that it's tricky and it's tricky part is Chicago's doesn't dominate the entire state of Illinois. There's a lot of suburban urban town state interests. And so if you come in on a special deal for Chicago. That's not the way that's not going to do well What you need to do is make the argument? Sakaba just wants its fair share. And that's what we would be doing in the case specifically of the Casino I know from being there there and having worked on this the language in the agreements between the governor and the city are all worked out and it's fair for the rest of the state because it generates so much money and and it's used. What's it us for us to pay for the capital bills which benefit the entire state?.

They got license plate of their murder so they ran over to Kansas City. 'CAUSE THEY WANNA snagging and they don't tell us ah we need snagged him took him back to independence. Why were the commanders? I was looking for. They were bad. Had we had to have the chiefs that get together and Hash out jurisdiction who knows no different than if is in a company or a police departments or whatever whatever to. Hey you've gotta have managed but in order to issue out these disputes between these guys. Interestingly I I think what you see in the East Coast is to in in this this this crew being out messages demonstrated is the West Coast. You've got one city and you've got one family and that's it but in the east coast where things are much more dense. You've got more shipping routes. You've got more traffic lanes. You've got a lot more everything. Boston is a major harbour with the hub. That goes all all over. New York's got a big hub. There's there's major hubs major thoroughfares. It's a lot more more dense population. There's a lot more people to step to steal. It's so that's I think why the GENEVIEVE's they wanted to plant their flag there. And so we've got a guy here and we'll whatever whatever the patriarch is Are Not into. We'll we'll we'll take a piece of and you know it's just your satellite office and it's not going to be your biggest money maker but you'll take everything you galley really interesting. I wonder if it was sure would be interesting to know a little more the history. You'll never know how that came the B. did Did Ghaffar did he have relatives that rory out there in Springfield Massachusetts. How how did he have to go out? There have been like I mean. He was a mustache Mustache Pete. At one time he was born in nineteen he was he was old ninety one. I I can't remember. There was something about him. I think that he was from the area originally originally I. I'd have to dig more. Because he's he was a but yeah I don't I don't think he came in from New York. I think he was already tied tidy and and for a while. New England was run. It was just a just a bunch of little crime groups before Patriarchy came in really united. Everything he he really he was. That's why that's why you see. Two major hubs in in in New England Boston and Rhode Island because it was a series of smaller towns and Raymond Patriarca really went sort of unit. Sort would've pulled it kind of like what Mussalini did and he got everybody under one under one roof top interesting. I guess the Springfield crew would really be just like a crew from what you're saying. It's not even like Kansas City's relationship with Chicago Milwaukee's relationship because they had they were their own family now. They were observed subservient but their own family. And then like Nick Savelli even get up to I money that he didn't really really have to because he wanted to keep a happy you need. He knew the importance of Chicago and keep them happy they were it. Yeah they were they were a crew they had they had to. They had a turnover percentage. Whatever it is to to to generate surveys in New York and then later on you see when they had a lot of infighting Need New York got involved in and they sort of promoted one guy over another and that led to some fighting and they felt they weren't getting enough from the current leader so they they got involved in the inner politics and so New York does play sort of a role in and who is the WHO is. The boss. Sir Likes to stir the pot a little bit. They're independent to a point but they do. They owe their allegiance to to New York. But it is in a unique situation. I can't think of anything similar to it an anywhere. I've not heard anything quite like this. So it is interesting now kind of who were who were some of the personalities strongmen in that over the years and you've got this big no sane who was in it and then you've got these three brothers who you you see it and you still see. They're they're the sentence the belly brothers SKIBO SKIP belly and out. Big Al's Gabelli and Tonysk this capability. That name floats around because they've still got some nephew or somebody else who was just arrested recently on on a loan sharking skiing alone. Somebody five thousand dollars to play the lottery a not a very good investment. It is if you're thinking about making it up take. It took him back at thirteen hundred dollars. A month of big was was thirty thousand dollars so I mean it was that big coveting loser about five thousand dollars. I'll I'll tell you what I brought somebody because I thought I had a really hot stock and and you know I eventually. It was just not so stock. Is One thing borrowing money to play games grades. Mean unless you know that unless you know. It's fixed AH so Matt Guy Carla Master to Taro who. We've spoken about briefly before when we're talking about a poor job dry. He was go but he was a go-between Worcester Massachusetts was kind of an independent down but but he was officially. Part of the Patriarch is and he was kind of the official. Go between between the Genovese is and the and the Patriarch is that crew. And then eventually when when William Graciano who raised all that trouble that we we spoke at an earlier show it was Carlo Master Tara who had been around for a long time he was the one who eventually setup Grosso for for execution because he was. He was stirring up too much trouble among the the Genovese. And the Patriarch is and trying to take over the PATRIARCA Jarkko family and Master Tatar wanted wanted more peace so he he stepped up and helped execute Grosso. But in this in this genovese evasive family. You've got the the skelly brothers and they ended up taking over after stand. Cafaro died and then there was an old Guy Santaniello who is named as matter except that I saw it again because his son popped up recently he was he was a pretty mean looking guy. Hi who was being arrested within the last year for for loan sharking and for wasn't witness intimidation. It was it was constantly re being arrested up in its very active crew but recent news reports. That New York said they don't like dealing with them.

The guy runs away gets away Sir chasing him but he runs into a runs into somebody's house also they can't shoot him so a couple years later this out. Bruno is sitting around with affiliate Nettie of Philly family. And they're laughing about executions gone. Gone wrong as as as you know you do. When you're a lawyer opposite somewhere wrong at the street I believe that happen? You believe that I will go into the details. But so Leonardi Years Mrs may not say hello a funny story and then Leonardi goes to Leonelli remembers the story when he's whizzing and he says you know this random guy how Bruno who was the guy in in Springfield and he told me about this. Hit Blah Blah Blah cops traced back and Bruna went to trial for it at the end up eating a beating the hit but then he got killed two two weeks later be during a power struggle in this crew and in those I mean these guys are constantly killing each other within this within this one crew I mean but but yeah he he told a story couldn't couldn't pull the trigger because of the GORTEX gloves and and then ten years later Philly Nettie informed on him and based on that the police were able to track academics and and really interesting. I felt the Anani that book. I think it's a mafia prince or something like this. Why the better ones? I really enjoyed that book so I wonder you probably don't know and they're probably nothing about this. I wonder if they if to be a made guy if they were they open. Open up the books that would you if you were brought up through this crew. kind of bring people up. It's how they'd done it. Kansas City the made I will will take somebody on is almost like an apprentice. And every time you see them they'll be together and so I wonder how that worked. If that had they had to go back to say somebody said Yeah we need him Medo or did have made people sit out there. Were a a couple couple of incidences like you said where we're this guy was the mentor of this one or this one was the mentor to this one and that led to different camps. Because this one you know one guy led led another one and they ended up splitting up in generations but you do see that sort of leadership role where where one guy takes on the leadership role of another one and that's that that eventually does lead them getting made now now And there is. There is a guy who eventually became the leader guiding my dinghy our Lada. He was he was the protege of Al Bruno. The Guy who couldn't shoot because the GORTEX loves and he started going back and forth between New York speaking into the actual genovese leadership trying to brown-nosing is what I'm caught so he was sucking sucking up to the big bosses and he started Started telling tales outside church talking about well. You know Alberta's not doing this but if I were boss I could do it for you. So the genevieve cheese in New York actually made made him inducted him unbeknownst to know who would have been his capital. Yeah they went around him run around his Campo and made him and then Set Him up and had had Bruna murdered and then he took over the crew so he did he was made by the. VC's he leap-frogged frog over his own. Capito who was then the boss who was the capital of this family and he was made and then he he had his own boss killed so You Know Oh you..

"Springfield to make sure that <hes> perry nato care is still provided and that <hes> even though labor and delivery will take place at brattleboro attleboro which is a little ways away people will still be able to get their routine care in the community of springfield so i think you know there are those challenges are are the same ones i talked about for all rural hospitals and we're still trying to understand everything that happened at springfield but <hes> they are building a path forward and we'll see how that continues continues to evolve and develop sure and you talked about <hes> a little bit about plans to restructure for for hospitals <hes> it looks like mountain scotney in this other part of the state near pretty close to springfield joined a network with dartmouth hitchcock.
