I never updated this a while back

John J Haley was convicted in 2007, of involuntary manslaughter, and got sentenced to 10 years.

I wonder how many times the jurors uttered the phrase “John J. Haley is a piece of fucking shit.”

Apparently at the trial, it came to light that he shoved another elderly fisherman into the lake a month before he killed Du Doan.  The other victim of “Johnny’s” prank survived and testified at the trial, giving supporting evidence for John J Haley’s piece of fucking shittedness.

He was sentenced on November 4th 2007, but I don’t remember catching any of that info on the local news or in the local papers, and the linked post didn’t come up until December 11 2009, so that’s part of why I didn’t follow up on the original post.  Apparently other than 3 local bloggers, like this interesting chick at Bonnies Blog of Crime Nobody gave a damn.

Question.  10 years sentence, what does that come out to in real years?  Assuming he’s able to keep his head and temper and not screw up while in prison?

Update: Forgot that some people might not be familiar with my highly substantive coverage of the situation when it first happened, added link to my first “John J. Haley” post.

I’m homesick

I used to live about two blocks from this place.

The producers of the show tried to make this into a social commentary. I never saw anything but good humored fun. Plus, they ALWAYS start it.

What do you expect from a bunch of drunks?

Gone — drinkin’ celebratin’

Posted by mesablue on September 28, 2007



Back to the Windy City for the weekend. The Cubs will clinch — hopefully. And, I’ll be there. Unfortunately, they won’t. They are finishing the season on the road. Still, it should be fun to hang out and have a few dozen beers in Wrigleyville during the games. Clark & Addison will be crazy when they wrap it up. I was there in 2003, 1998 and 1989. It would be amazing if they could make a run at it this year and avoid the 100 year hype that we’re going to hear all next year.

Then I’m off to St. Louis for a few days of business type stuff and then, who knows — maybe back to Chicago for a playoff game or three.

Oh, and I gots to get me an Italian Beef sammich.
