Tag Team in G.I.

Street Patrol 



Street (All that "woo-woo-woo")

That little diatribe between Mary Elgin, Calumet Township Trustee, and Ron Matlock,  Board President "was "political beef". My contention is back to "check and balances". Did Mary Elgin as Calumet Township Trustee have the fiduciary allegation to inform Calumet Township Trustee Board of $10, 000 dollars? The money that Jamal Washington (CEO of Illinois Central Bus Co) helped secure from the bus company that employs him. $7,000 dollars went to "book bags for back to school affair hosted by Mary Elgin and Jamal Washington in 2013. $3,000 dollars was money left over and then spent on hams and turkeys that were given away for "Thanksgiving Day" 2013. Again, sponsored by Jamal Washington and Mary Elgin.

The Quagmire

Sources confirm that Jamal Washington is running for Jerome Prince's job on the Lake County Council... Ron Matlock is also running for the office vs Jamal Washington. You can hear Mary Elgin speak to this following video.


In my back pocket boss!

"Put down that crack pipe!"

      Talked to some "black dude", who said he was supporting Mary Morris Leonard for Mayor in 2015. Street listened as this guy tried to make his case. "She's gonna appointed a Mexican as he deputy mayor... Mary is only gonna stay for one year, and then Mary is gonna give the job of Mayor to the "Mexican Guy". This Black Dude was looking at me eyeball to eyeball as he "broke it down".
      Street just laughed at such "B.S." "You better put down that "crack pipe", bro." Street responded
      "I'm serious, Street." The guy went on.
      "Me, too, 'cause who you gonna sell that bullshit to?" Street forced the issue.
Month or two later, Street ran into the same guy. "Mary just gonna stay for one term only." He changed his story. This ran through my mind as a "calendar plugger" arrived at the house and around the city to other resident as well.

Street ("Bochinche" on G.I.)

Ronier Scott

For the tourists who might be scratching their heads over the word "Bochinche"... Rumor is what this word mean in Spanish. (Puerto Rican slang). "Bochinche" tells us that "Feds" have been looking at Ronier Scott --- Gary City Councilman. Now we hear Feds are looking at "Big Walter"? 

"Bochinche" has it that Feds are looking at Elsie Franklin, Lake County Councilperson and Chairperson of Gary Democratic? The phrase "person of interest" comes to mind. "Bochinche" tell us in 2011 Lake County Candidates may have dropped cash payments to "Queen Bee"!

"Bochinche" has it that "local boss" has been using money from bus company for his own political career? Does corporate know this?

Street continues
"Bochinche" is wondering how "local boss" from bus company and 2 members of Gary Scholl Board have radio shows on WLTH. Who's paying the freight?


"Bochinche" hears there is question about "gobble, gobble give away @ this office?

Van Til Admits Guilt

Street Patrol

EEOC -  Equal Employment Opportunity Commission
George Van Til admitted his guilt and "laid down" for "The Feds", and Street gets that... But can't forget a woman who used to work for George Van Til.... Source alleges that she came to him seeking solace. The black woman allegedly showed my source some "text messages" from George Van Til. Van Til wanted some "you know what". Source tried to "get her straight."  Take those text messages to "EEOC" and see what they say or else keep 'em in your pocket," the advice he gave her.
Potential sexual harassment case facing our George Van Til? That's my beef. "Papers" or "Feds" don't give a shit about that case!!!
Bottom Line
All that woman has to do is call EEOC. "Para las otras." for the other women who encountered the same.

I'd Rather Be Fishing

Street Patrol

Letter to the Editor

The motivation for this letter is provided by a friend of mines who loves to fish. On the front of his truck, there is a “I’d rather be fishing” license plate. This gentleman, Louis Williams, would give up the shirt off his back, you got me? It was during a time when he, Mr. Louis Williams, was trying to launch his 20 foot boat into the water. The boat got away from Mr. Williams and his friend and drifted out into the lake in Saugatuck, Michigan. This is the part of the story that got my attention. Mr. Williams received a bill of $704.44 to recover his 20 foot boat.



            _/    labor for 3 Officers --- $135.00
            _/    Chief --- $80.41
            _/    labor for 5 firefighters --- 183.00
            _/    Fire boat 2 --- $50.00
           _/    one engine ---- 150.00

What was the Chief doing on this call, and 5 Firefighters is kinda excessive. It’s my hope that this bill isn’t excessive because Mr. Williams has “dark skin”.

"Shot Callers In East Chicago"


It was Mayor George Pabey and Chief Angelo Machuca of E.C.P.D. Willie Pabey, a E.C Patrolman, was Mayor George Pabey's cousin.  He allegedly stole $6,000 dollars from East Chicago Bail Bond Fund. Deal was struck where Willie Pabey, E.C. Patrolman, had to make restitution on the stolen $6,00o dollars from East Chicago Bail Bond Fund. And then you had Chief Angelo Machuca's secretary(Julie Moore) to steal $26,000 dollars from East Chicago Bail Bond Fund. Resigned from her job, but no jail time.

There was also allegations a East Chicago Mexican cop who's in Federal prison as of this writing stole from East Chicago Bail Bond Fund.

My Beef

Where was Mary Morris Leonard on this and following scenario. Seems to Street she was rollin' with Team Pabey!

Street (Kevin Carr)
This was a guy who supposedly all set to become Chief Deputy Michelle Fajmin's Lake County Recorders Office... Source goes on to say that "The Queen Bee" got a phone call from Kevin Carr... Kevin Carr gave the Queen Bee the news about new appointment as "Chief Deputy" in Lake County Recorders Office. Queen Bee wasn't "feeling that", and she let it be known Queen Bee "called the shot".
Fast, Quick, and in a hurry
Kevin Carr was "out of the picture" and here appears Darren Washington as the Chief Deputy in Lake County Recorders Office... And Michelle Fajmin had to "sign off" on the deal!!! 
Right now 10.24.13
Source alleges that the FBI is in "G.I.", my brother. And "the Queen Bee" might have problems, you feel me?

Street Continues
The aforementioned scenario has some interesting dynamics when you look at it.
  1.  Darren Washington --- Gary
  2. Kevin Carr --- Gary
  3. Queen Bee --- Gary
  4. Michelle Fajmin --- Scherillville
 My Source on this scenario
The source is better than a government check, you feel me? Street don't play!!!
"A lot of people played ball with, and they did... they're gonna be up to bat soon."
Darren Washington's Protégé --- next update.

Street (My Brother's Keeper)

There are sources who allege that Mayor McDermott is helping not hoping his brother transfer liquor license from "Aquavor Night Club ". "The Stadium LLC" is at 5253 Hohman which is right across the street.

Street Continues
Aquavor Night Club has been having a lot of problems with rowdy crowds and parking problems which make it difficult to operate. Is this a new "watering hole" for Marty.


Mr. Ray Rapchak please "comprende que dos y dos son cuatro".  "Understand that two and two is four". One only has to look at Mctavern's, and how they were shut down after somebody got shot. Then further north on Indianapolis Blvd you had "De Rosa's" who "took up the slack " Mctavern's left. Then "De Rosa's was shut down after act of violence?

Street (Honeymoon Over)

Letter to the editor(The Times)
     The honeymoon for Mayor Wilson of Gary, Indiana is over now 9.7.13. The scathing evaluation by the “I.S.P.” of the Gary Police Department will serve as my “smoking gun”. And don’t think those private investors for the Gary Airport missed the articles in our local newspapers.
     In the street, they use the term “co-sign” to convey backing up or lending somebody your support. This “Gary Poe-Poe Mayor Wilson “co-signed for even tried to bride “I.S.P.” once was caught dirty. And she gave him a “white shirt” on Gary Police Department. Lord have mercy!!!

The town of Lake Station may start to get "real hot". And you know that saying, Where there's smoke, there's fire." Source alleges that Mayor's daughter might have stolen $18,000 dollars from Lake Station City Court.
East Chicago that Street know of had 2 cops who had stolen money from East Chicago Bail Bond Fund. Chief Angelo Machuca, Jr,'s secretary also stole like 24,000 dollars from same E.C. Bail Bond Fund. It was like what else is new?

Street (Vibe around me)
It wasn't two blog ago that Street wrote update on the blog about this same topic.... And the story of "big shot" from Harrah's Casino who "skated" on a sexual harassment case.
      "Never seen a case disappear into thin air,"  Source (I.S.P) tell me as we talked. The only consolation was a woman sued "big shot" from Harrah's Casino. Won civil judgment at least.
September 23, 2013 (Lowell, IN) (WLS) -- the Indiana State Police are investigating sex assault accusation against a Lake County Sheriff's Officer.
Indiana State Police say the Officer has been put on administrate leave, but Lake County Sheriff' Department had no comment.
An Indiana State Police spokeswoman says the assault allegedly took place Thursday in Lowell, IN.
Investigators would not release the Officer's name.
