Chicago Firefighter Gets Four Years In Prison
Chicago, IL—The Gulag has yet another political prisoner tonight. For engaging in constitutionally protected activity a political hack in a black robe, appointed by the Daley/Burke crime families ordered honorably retired firefighter Ted Kozak off to Stateville Prison.
Kozak never hurt, threatened, stole from or otherwise victimized anyone. He held two prize collector’s items for a Chicago cop who was hospitalized and later died. The items were a Thompson sub-machine gun and a Sten gun. Both are banned in Illinois but may be owned in most of free America.
The guns were never used in crimes and were kept locked in a vault. Kozak had a stellar career and is a genuine hero.
The jailing of Kozak is a huge waste of money, prison space and serves no good purpose. Kozak would have merely continued his life as a good taxpaying and honest American.
Next will be the appeal which will take longer to litigate than Kozak will spend in prison. Four years will get Kozak little more than a year behind bars. The rub here is that Kozak will be unable to care for his ailing mother.
Kozak should have been allowed to remain free pending appeal. The gun convictions involve anything but settled law. But the slime that contaminates City Hall want an example made of the fireman the same way that Adolph Hitler’s People’s Court did with those who dared to disagree with the Third Reich. Are we somehow going to feel safer tonight?
