Has John Gotti Possessed Mayor John Dickert? or my .02 on today’s news on the RICO


Before we dance with joy in the streets fans of John Dickert, please note the Story of the man above

John Gotti in case you may have no clue being far too busy say selling hats or thinking of ways to get $$ from the public lets review


From Wikpedia:

John Joseph Gotti, Jr. (October 27, 1940 – June 10, 2002) was an American mobster who became the Boss of the Gambino crime family in New York City. Gotti and his brothers grew up in poverty and turned to a life of crime at an early age. Operating out of the Ozone Park neighborhood of Queens, Gotti quickly rose to prominence, becoming one of the crime family’s biggest earners and a protégé of Gambino family underboss Aniello Dellacroce.

After the Federal Bureau of Investigation indicted members of Gotti’s crew for selling narcotics, Gotti took advantage of growing dissent over the leadership of the crime family. Fearing he and his men would be killed by Gambino crime family Boss Paul Castellano for selling drugs, Gotti organized the murder of Castellano in December 1985 and took over the family shortly thereafter. One of the key details was waiting for the moment after the death of Aniello Dellacroce, who died a few weeks earlier from natural causes. Dellacroce had risen to the position of underboss when Carlo Gambino moved Joseph Biondo aside.

This left Gotti as the boss of one of the most powerful crime families in America, one that made hundreds of millions of dollars a year from construction, hijacking, loan sharking, gambling, extortion and other criminal activities. Gotti was one of the most powerful crime bosses during his era and became widely known for his outspoken personality and flamboyant style, which gained him favor with much of the general public. While his peers avoided attracting attention, especially from the media, Gotti became known as the “The Dapper Don” for his expensive clothes and personality in front of news cameras. He was later given the nickname “The Teflon Don” after three high-profile trials in the 1980s resulted in his acquittal, though it was later revealed that the verdicts were the result of jury tampering, juror misconduct and witness intimidation. Law enforcement authorities continued gathering evidence against Gotti that helped lead to his downfall.

Gotti’s underboss Salvatore “Sammy the Bull” Gravano is credited with the FBI’s success in finally convicting Gotti. In 1991, Gravano agreed to turn state’s evidence and testify for the prosecution against Gotti after hearing Gotti on wiretap make several disparaging remarks about Gravano and questioning his loyalty. In 1992, Gotti was convicted of five murders, conspiracy to commit murder, racketeering, obstruction of justice, illegal gambling, extortion, tax evasion, and loansharking. He was sentenced to life in prison without parole and was transferred to United States Penitentiary, Marion. Gotti died of throat cancer on June 10, 2002, at the United States Medical Center for Federal Prisoners in Springfield, Missouri.

As you can see time and again he seams to have got over on the law and to some was untouchable

Perhaps after his death Gotti somehow was able to gain control of John Dickert to some how keep his (Gotti’s) activities going?

After all for sometime The City of Racine we find out more and more on actions that upset many in this fair city CAR 25-Mound Cemetery,Team Porter’s, Rootworks, and so on and now today’s action in the RICO case BUT as much as the Journal Times of Racine done a more piss ass story then usual even for them I have a copy of the order,I also used my phone and talked to a Mr. Green (source of legal info) Mr. X who knows many of the Bar Owners in question and the order the Order I copied it below.

“IT IS ORDERED that the plaintiffs’ complaint be and the same is
hereby DISMISSED without prejudice; the plaintiffs shall file an amended
complaint within 21 days of the entry of this order; the defendants shall have
21 days after the plaintiffs have filed an amended complaint to file their
respective answers or appropriate motions.”


As it was explained to me that the Judge wants more information if this is to go ahead, that in a Amended  complaint that we could find Affidavits of information, Documents and even taped statements.

Again as it was explained to me this is a very very complicated case this is far from over

nor is the cost of this to the tax payers of Racine.

We too, need to recall what was the outcome of Gotti life of crime he died in prison was all the money worth that?  How do we go about finding out on how to remove Gotti from our beloved Mayor should we find out we need to?

Mr. Green did say this should this get refiled is it a new case with a new pool of $100K of city $$ or more of the old case with the insurance picking up the tab?

Also if it does get refiled how do the poor slugs not covered by the City of Racine keep paying $100-$200 maybe even $300 an Hour for Lawyers?


And for you






Had a family become homeless today, Mom,Dad, 3 kids leave the apt gt into a car and say goodby. Knowing the Mom/Dad I knew that He lost his job a few months ago and she works retail.

He tried to find work but cold not, sighed up with the temp companies but could not get anything over $10 an hour.

Truly Sad if HALO had no room was my understanding that they just sleep in the car.

They are not drunks or druggies, went to work everyday, good folks event beyond their control happened and now well kicked to the curb.

This is happening more and more in Racine I hear stories everyday, in fact one of my pals is planing to move to Mexico because He hears  as a CNC operator he can get a job at one of the new plants opening up.

Wow more opportunity in Mexico for an American then in Racine.  In John Dickert’s Racine how nice must that be!

Then too does it look like he cares?


Are we are told that so many want to move to Racine for Condo’s on the Root River

Clingman’s Clink part 2!



My Mom was telling me (I ask my Dad but he died in 10) that at the Bar my folks owned they had a Pool Table a pin ball machine and A Juke Box boy did she love having that.

Each week she go out and buy the Top 5 Country Western/ Rock/Pop hits and put them in take out the songs not plaid much, the cost was 5 songs for $1.00 if you were a woman in the bar alone or with other women The Bartender give you tokens my folks found out fast that guys would feed $$ in the Juke box all night to make women happy.

On nights the Dancers where on deck Men were asked to play the songs danced too. Boy did they.

My Mom thought the coins where not counted but weighed to get the amount from the Juke box the pool table too!

Her memory not too good anymore but her and my Step dad are 80% sure that was the case.

I know  that my folks took pride in paying the taxes.  After all he fought in WW II to be able to have freedom to do so, here he was from a poor upbringing owning a good business in a small town the American dream, he did well.  Far better then Farming

So well that when years latter we moved to Madison my folks paid CASH for the house they bought. Not bad

Now lets say your bar is in a corrupt town where well taxes were if your connected, taxes were oh let’s say up to you. Better yet you paid to the city a fee to have a coin operated machine but that income not monitored so that income from your games/juke may not be taxed correctly. How much money might you be able to make/hide from the Feds? $100 a day 200? More

Thinking that its high time not only any fees needed   to have a Coin Operated Machine go up but a counter added to the machine so  income may be better reported to the State and the Feds.

Effects of the RFPD reductions


Was asked what effects if any are being felt with the reduction of Police in Racine, I do not know shall we find out?

How will this be done?

Easy!! I got a call today asking about fights in locations in Racine so:

1) Get the Numbers of calls into Dispatch from the areas I have been told of

2) Get the reports or simply the number of reports created from the calls for service.

Mind you each call for service may not create a report  but it should be close. Question being are RPD not being dispatched as might be asked for? If so why lack of officers or OTHER reasons? What might those be

Is YOUR safety at risk due to Mayor Dickert’s effectively laying off RPD officers perhaps are fights being allowed in and around the right bars or something else going on?

Note far worse are RPD officers in danger due to understaffing? Should we not give them all the help they need, or is Rootworks more critical?

My thanks to Mr. X for offering to pay for the Police Reports

The sad last days of the Racine Cable Commission



I went last night to what may be one of the last few meetings of the City of Racine Cable Commission lasted about 30-40 mins

Once again Mr. Henrix asked what happened to his $250 he paid and has proof he paid to the City for his Sponsorship and never heard anything back only been a year.

Only been 6 or so months he has been asking about his donation. Wait in 6 month the two Aldermen who sit on the Commission nor Ron Thomas who was an Alderman and talks to the Mayor can tell him what happened? What?

The meeting itself was short after all CAR 25 is basically shut down only showing programs it obtains or Mayor Dickert’s PR events

The 4th Parade was brought up and when Alderman of the 6th had questions She was IMHO told to shut up. What?  Even after She nicely told the   Commission could sit in at ANY City Meeting and ask questions she was still told to STFU.

Its gets better  one of the Agenda points was a new Ordinance on the CATV Station but they did not have one to talk about even better Mr. Thomas brought up that in May our City Administrator wrote an Email about the  Commission and it’s role after the Station was removed from the hands of  Sky Falls but just yesterday Morning our Mayor called him (Thomas) and said with the City being short 6 Million 6,000,000  (and laying off Police by not hiring to fill open positions) The Mayor explained he had no idea what was going to happen with CAR 25.

  Alderman of the 6th stated that the Commission could write the Ordinance and go forward with this, but Mr. Thomas  said he think about it.

Interesting observations;

The Public Speakers where taped by the City why?

From what I saw much of the equipment I am used to seeing at CAR 25 looks missing. Where is it? Who is using it and for what?

How much did the City Pay 18/24 In Milwaukee to do the 4th Parade?

Note to the Commission Members:

1) The Mayor is not going to restore the Bus Service

2) The Mayor can not turn back time for former Football Heroes.

3) The Mayor MIGHT give old school Union types Jobs but would it be worth your soul?

Racine has the best water drink more we need the money





Read the above real Bill from Detroit MI this is for ONE MONTH!!!

See all the added charges

Should we expect this to come to Racine as this City goes deeper and deeper into debit?

We all must drink Water right? Business Need water too some far more then others. A company can move out or relocate maybe set up in say Kenosha  where water is less expensive not being used to fund the lets say Crony Projects like Rootworks or our Mayor’s Legal bills.

Can you move?  Is your house able to be sold? Can you get what you paid for it? Can you get what it is assessed for?

Will we see this kind of tactic used to fund the City of Racine as more leave the City and Racine facing higher costs?

All ready we are seeing an effective layoff of 10 RPD officers are there more to come?

The Mayor can plead that we have no money and he be right we as a City do not we are Broke as a joke, with who knows what surprise bills coming our way?

How much will the RICO cost us? The Court cases on the City perhaps over assessing properties?

Lt. Days (RPD) case on Racism should that get going?

Of course this does not stop our Fearless Leader from spending on things like Rootworks

Does this Cartoon show how things are done in the City of Racine?




Might this photo explain why no one at the State cares


Drink Lots of Water!

THe City of Racine need every dime!
