  1. I feel that a good choice was made; reason being that while choices are being made, I’m remaining confident, that I, will be successful in my suit against the City of Chicago. I’ve won a criminal suit, practically on my own, for because of the defendants involved(PD’s, a few judges, two chicago police officers, who works for 25th district(the district was shook down for corruption),tenants(who are the lead defendants, for my injury was caused, IN DEFENSE of MYSELF), and a few others, I’m hoping that the laws change dramatically, so that more of us who’s being ripped off, in our law suits, can prevail, just as we should.
    There are many cases that should be reopened, but they’re not, because of the corruption that exist at the Daley Center, here in Chicago.
    Illinois attorney general, Lisa Madigan, has threatened a nurses life, telling her to”get out of Illinois with her family”, because she EXPOSED ABUSE at Read Mental Hospital, YET, Madigan had the audecity to get on national t.v., faking like she cares about children being exploited on the internet!
    Think about it! If she threaten a nurse, who does what she can to make people better, because she exposes abuse, common sense should tell you that she HAS to be involved in the coverup of abuse at Mental Facilities!
    PS: I’m fighting a case right now, I must submit 3 copies of my brief to her, she has interfered in an application thAat I filed for Crimes Victims Compensation, because she knows that I’m telling the truth about the knowledge I’ve just shared with you.
    PS: I need help at getting justice, so if you can recommend counsel to help me, I can be reached at, (773)622-2906, at any time.
    Thank you.
