Street (Source alleges Indiana Gaming Commission is investigating Hammond money from Casino spent on dumpsters)
First Red Flag
Councilman Opinker spent almost $32,000 on dumpsters for the 5th District, Oh, and the dumpsters were placed in the 5th District. One week before the November 2011 General Election in Hammond, Indiana. Source alleges Opinker had banners with his name place over the dumpsters.
Note (Source further alleges)
The banners were yellow and black like Opinker's political signs for the Councilman in the 5th District. Paid for banners with money from the Casino.
Al Salinas II spent that on dumpsters in the 2nd District. Where and when were these dumpters "rolled out" to Private Business.
What Street want for Christmas?
Can Dedelow at "WJOB" ask Mayor MCDermott Jr. if the Indiana Gaming Commission is investigating Hammond?
Dedelow usually lobs softball questions to Mayor Tom McDermott on his Friday morning show on WJOB 1230AM. Can you ask Mayor MC Dermott Jr. if the Indiana Gaming Commission is investigating the City of Hammond? (pertaining to dumpster and thousands of dollars spent on them in 2011). Councilman Salinas II and Opinker
"White Dude" called up Dedelow at WJOB's morning show and called him a hypocrite for asking sponsors to advertise on his radio station. But yet tells Cal City guy to tell his friends about WJOB in Hammond. (woo-woo-woo). "We're using word of mouth." Dedelow tells "The Cal City caller. Here you have a "everyday cat" just discovered WJOB 1230AM. Suggest that WJOB advertise with some "billboard" and on cable to get the word out about your radio station. White dude from WJOB had a epiphany. Actually admitted that he was a "hypocrite". Maybe he needed to reconsider having billboards to promote the radio station.
Now if we could get "White Dude from WJOB 1230AM to ask Mr. Tom McDermott Jr. a tough question.
Two E.C. ( East Chicago) Poe-Poes (cops) are allegedly gonna be allege that he was assigned to work indicted by the Fed's in January 2013 This " Intel" better than a "government check". One of E.C. Cops to be indicted worked for DEA for years. Then all of sudden he was transferred back to work at E.C.P.D. Sources allege that he was assigned to work Juvenile while he was being investigated by the Fed's (Looked at how "The Fed's" say it ).
Ghost Payrolling Allegations
E.C. Poe-Poe was getting paid to work "O.T." at West Calumet Project and Lake Side Project as security. But he didn't show to work. Note: Shaun Pitts just plea guilty to "ghost payrolling" this year in Federal Courthouse. He waits sentencing. No jail time is expected, but only the loss of his policeman's job with E.C.P.D. And he probably will have to make restitution of money he didn't earn but was paid.
Other Ghost Payrolling
Miguel Arrendondo when he worked for Sheriff Dept and "moon lighted" at security on Guthrie Street. Ed Samuels, form Assistant Chief at E.C.P.D., was indicted with Arredondo on "ghost payrolling charges. (Both were featured on earlier update @ www.fromthestreets.net.
Street's source allege that this guy who is E.C. Cop will also be indicted in January 2013. His case (VIN Numbers) might deal with stolen cars. Another "Salt & Peppa" act who might be in "real hot water". Also they were re-assigned to work Juvenile Dept.
Sit Down for This One
Also to be indicted are two gentlemen from the Lake County Sheriff Dept. (Pre-2011) This according to source who is a 10 on a scale 1-10.
There's a election coming up on December 18, 2012 (Tuesday) for the President Fraternal Order of Police #58 East Chicago, Indiana.
From day one Poe-Poe was "beefing" that Justin Orange, current President of F.O.P., wasn't gonna "look out" for them. His mother, Gilda Orange, E.C. City Council President and the "right hand" of Mayor Copeland(Jackie Robinson), takes priority over the "Poe-Poe"?
Bet You What
This election for President of E.C. F.O.P.(Fraternal Order of Police) gonna answer this question. Is E.C. Poe-Poe(Policeman to recognize ) Justin Orange "in bed" with Mayor Copeland? Priorities in question? Or maybe he's doing a "bang up job" as president.
The talk is how Queen Bee has more than 2 dozen relatives on city and county payrolls in Gary and Lake County. Thus the moniker "Queen Bee". People in Gary fear the wrath of queen Bee.
Title of Queen Bee
1. High ranking Lake County Official
2. High ranking member of the Gary Democratic Precinct Organization
Source allege Queen Bee has 14 relatives working for Gary City Court.
There was talk after the May 2011 Primary that Queen Bee allegedly "shook down" the following people.
1. Dr. Bade
The figure that was thrown is about $34,000 dollars. This money was used to build two and half garage.
Street Cred (Back Story)
According to Michelle Fajman, Dr. Bade told her. "I'm a magician." "I flipped them." Bade bragged. Claims that Queen Bee would endorse him over Frey for coroner. Fajman laughed and said that she drove around Gary to look at Polling Place. She discovered that Gary was pushing Dr. Fortonson with at least 2 people at each Polling Place passing out his literature. Nobody pushed Dr. Bade, Frey or Michelle Fajman Carolyn Jordan had $800.00 in her war chest and got 8,000 votes in Gary. Jordan didn't drop "a chip". Michelle Fajman dropped $12,000 and "got the pipe".
Dropping a Dine
Gary Democratic Precinct Committeemen claimed that Queen Bee didn't give them "a chip". They were pissed off.
People who felt Queen Bee's wrath
Kevin Carr, who was supposed to be appointed Fajman's Chief Deputy. Sources allege Queen Bee wanted Daren Washington, you feel me? Christine Cid was demoted and took a pay cut.
Queen Bee, according to sources, has a "God Son" who may be in hot water!!! Allegation persist.
They've been quieter than a "church house mouse peeing on cotton", especially when Street discovered that one of the young men being investigated is a Gary guy. This young men is related to a "Political Player"in "Gary Politics"! What's up J.B.?--- (Freedom Fighter)
Hint of the day
The Gary Guy was arrested for selling (boy) heroin in August of 2010. Gary and Merrillville young men might be in "hot water"?
P.S. "Salt alleged had physical contact with woman while "Peppa" was more of a look-out".
Source told me that it wasn't a rape, but more of a sex abuse charge against 2 Government Center workers. It still happened in the closet, but more like woman was forced to perform "oral sex" on the County Employees... Some "Johnny on the Spot" told me this morning that "The Detectives" from Lake County Jail took top of the chair from the closet for DNA testing. This news source claims that he has seen one of the Janitors (white guy) walking with a pair of Lake County Detectives... Allegedly interviewed white dude twice Monday (11.26.12). and that's why there is a investigation going on so we all can know what really happened... Street just wanna have some dialogue on this topic.
P.S. "Salt N Peppa"--- white dude and black dude who are currently being investigated by Lake County Sheriff's Office.
Street (Cha-Ching, Cha-Ching)
If you talk about a case of sexual abuse, confinement against this woman, you're talking lawsuit... Layman can tell you that Lake County or Porter County is responsible for this woman's safety. You can't be doing your community service and have 2 Lake County Housekeeping Employees force you to perform oral sex on them. This inside a janitor's closet about 2 weeks at the Lake County Government Center... Cal Bellamy-- this is what's really going on there, Mr. Ethics Guy.
Bet you Joey D. (Former East Chicago Cop and City Councilman) can give you a "ten-four on Sgt. Ralph Flores flunking that drug test!!!
Street (Why did Flores get a free pass)
History of shame. East Chicago, Gary, Lake County --- Region cops marred by drug dealing, use within ranks. This was the "9.19.2005 piece" written by Marc Chase. My beef with Marc Chase is how he mentioned Chief Gus Flores in his "piece:. But he never mentions that Sgt. Ralph Flores was one of the 7 East Chicago Cops who failed the drug test. Sgt. Ralph Flores is the youngest brother of Chief Gus Flores. Sources allege everybody and their grandma knew about Ralph Flores's "cover up" on drug test. Why do you think all 7 East Chicago Cops were allowed to take a retest? Same dude inside McDonald's on Columbus Drive.
"Another East Chicago City Employee to the Federal" November 23 2002--- Marc Chase is the reporter on this "piece". "Crime with a police shield. This was the section of Marc Chase's "piece" that retold the same story from September 2005 (about the 7 E.C. Cops who flunked drug test and allowed to take a retest). Naturally, they all passed the retest, okay! Only Thing is this time, Marc Chase doesn't even mention Chief Gus Flores.
Had a source to call me up and tell me about a crazy scenario at Crown Point, Indiana. Source alleges that a woman who was from Porter County, but doing community service in Lake County was raped. It's alleged that 2 employees in housekeeping at the Lake County Government Center forced the woman into janitor's closet where the rape allegedly happened. One of the janitors implicated in the alleged rape has ties to a "Merrillville Politico". This incident is currently being investigated by Lake County Sheriff's office as of this writing (11.20.12)
This is a story that Street has told some close friends and even written 5 or 6 version. (Things to get it right) But the story was when people in East Hammond got water in their basement... this was that real bad floor about some 7 years ago. Alot of people lost home and thousands of dollars in damages related to the floor.
Town Hall Meeting
Ophelia Stern Center was filled to the "rafters", my bother. Mexican, blacks and white all had one common denominator that night. They all had water in their homes, and they were mad as hell. Each one that stepped up to the microphone "put a foot in Mayor McDermott's behind" as they berated City of Hammond. Street just looked and knew that he was in the midst of something as he surveyed the crowd. My camera was getting it all on tape. Jake Jacobs looke nervous. Mayor Mcdermott was livid as they "give it to him", and the crowd ate it up like ice cream. There was a black foreman sitting at the table facing the crowd. Councilman Higgs garnered applause when he talked about water in his basement. "If you don't like the job that I'm doing, then don't vote for me in November." He said.
Street broaddcasted the meeting on his Streetwise Live cable show on Channel 21 in Hammond, Indiana. Highest talked show we ever did, and everybody and their grandma watched it. Then some 4 months later we all got word that Public Access in Hammond (channel 21) was history... See ya!!! Mayor McDermott turned the water off. (Cry baby!!!!)
The Feds are in Hammond right now as of this writing. "Feds don't come to Hammond." Some guy told me once. Just hope Mayor McDermott don't wet his pants again.
The other day Street got some documents in the mail. Not via fax or e-mail, you got me.... The envelope had no return address, but Street get stuff like this. (People are scared and don't want to anybody to know they leaked intel). Anyway, there was a document that showed Pat Moore Jr., Deputy Chief of the Hammond Fire Department, citing visiting sick firemen on O.T. sheet. Thought that was strange until street made some phone calls... come to find the Deputy Chief didn't go visit these sick firemen. Come on now!
Source also went on to say that those sick firemen would talk to Street, you feel me?
You're a number person? $26,394.31 O.T. money. Pat Moore earned in 2009. $97,575.17 was total earning for 2009.
Then you discovered that the Chief or deputy Chief are not eligible for "O.T." Bobby Lendi, Chief Dave Ham who signed off on "O.T." knew this on the "front side" and still allowed it.
Street (One of the best kept secret in East Chicago)
(Headline from newspaper itself) "Drug dealing, use mars police" This was the title of a article done by The Times maybe 5 years ago. (11.12.12) The part that always get me in this story was when Chief Flores stepped into the picture. "The Police Chief at the time, Augusto Flores, allowed all officers to take retest, saying they could registered "false positive" on their initial "tests". Truth be told Sgt Ralph Flores was one of East Chicago Cops (seven) who failed a drug back then in 1986. And guess who his brother is, you feel me? That's why all seven were allowed to take a "re-test", because Chief Flores in my estimation couldn't just save his brother.
Every veteran cops in East Chicago and retired cops know all about this scenario. Ask anybody in East Chicago, and they'll tell you about the infamous Bosko in its hey day.
Gilbert Bonilla cover up! Chief Flores again the central figure.
When Natcho Segura was a precinct committeman, Streetwise remembered how certain other "Mexican Guys" would critize him. "Man Street, Natcho Segura can't even talk English, and he's a precinct committeeman." This Mexican Gusy tells me, and it was partly true that Natcho Segura spoke english with a thick ascent and broken English. This guy was taking a shot at Nacho Segura. Natcho Segura, undeterred, kept moving forward and didn't let it bother him. Natcho was a good horse, "Buen Caballio".
"You speak perfect English. Why don't you run for precinct committeeman?" Mexican Guy didn't say anything and just looked at his feet. The toughest part of politic is going up to the door of a complete stranger. I've seen certain people actually let their dog out when they see "politicans"opening their front gate. It's tough, and Natcho Segura (in broken English) got the job done mister!!!! Progreso - Progress.
Natcho Segura's daughter is now East Chicago School Board Member at-large, and she speaks good English and Spanish. (Graduate St. Mary Norte Dame.
Nice to support a qualified and dedicated candidate who happens to be Mexican. "Viva Mexico Primo.
Congratulation Mariecruz Segura Perez on your win.
The preceding newspaper article doesn't mention Opinker ( 5th District Councilman in Hammond, Indiana) who spent $31,000 dollars on dumpsters. The following claims shows quite a bit of a coincidence. The dumpsters were deployed from November 1 - November 8 2011 (General Election in Hammond where Opinker was up for re-election in he 5th District then)
Opinker has banners put the dumpsters. The banners had Opinker's name on them. Wasn't surprise that the banners were yellow and black. Same as Opinker's political signs. Sources alleges when we talk this was "real". $4,000 was spent on these banners! Probably paid with casino gaming revenue.
79 dumpsters scattered through out the 5th District (Hammond) had Opinker's name in black letters and yellow background. Voters driving by or walking by see the banners (Opinker). Then they arrive at the "polling place" with streamers and signs(Opinker) in black and yellow. Under auspices of a clean up program.
Inside the voting booth, we see name of incumbent Councilman Opinker on the ballot.
Want him to talk about his quote in an article by The Times when Salinas was fired. "That Salinas got away with a lot of stuff a normal foreman wouldn't even try." What stuff Mayor McDermott? What is a normal foreman? You're saying Salinas ain't normal? In 2007, when George Janeck almost "stole McDermott's lunch". Al Salinas II delivered his precinct for McDermott along with Chico Hinujusa. Only 2 precinct that Mayor McDermott won convincingly. Maybe, that's why Salinas's daughter boyfriend was hired to work on garbage truck for city of Hammond? And Salinas even tried the stuff he got away with because he was "McDermott's Boy." (went to Vegas together)
1. Salinas has been indicted on 4 counts of tax evasion and one count of bribery.
2. Salinas spent $310,000 dollars of casino gaming revenue perpetration of this "shake down" scheme. 2009-2011.
3. Salinas spent $77,000 dollars on dumpster in 2011. Also casino gaming revenue.
Pony up and tell us why Salinas was fired? "Where were checks and balance?"
Talked to a source who said Mayor Tom McDermott Jr.(Hammond) ain't doing nothing for nobody(local level, state level, and for President Obama). He was also a "no show" @ fundraiser for the following... Gregg, Simpson and Evan Bayh(representing Donnelly). The event was held at "The Genesis Convention Centre".
CNN and other tv outlets interviewed McDermott at Democratic Convention in North Carolina?
Al Salinas II and Opinker spend $77, 000 and $32,000 on dumpsters in 2011. Opinker spent his money one week prior to May Primary and one prior to November General Election 2011(Casino money to solicit votes?). Mayor McDermott only responsed... "we got a little sloppy."
