Regarding the federal sentencing of Daniel T. Frawley, former business partner of Antoin “Tony” Rezko, the Sun Times reports that,
“[Judge Ronald] Guzman ordered him to undergo a mental health evaluation and to serve time in a facility that has mental health services.”
This statement came in the context of Guzman’s noting that it’s been six years since Frawley was arrested for the crime for which he now faces jail time.
Also, it came in the context of the Times’ statement that,
“Over three years, Daniel T. Frawley would meet with government agents in an ‘off-campus,’ secret location. There, he divulged details used in at least a half-dozen different investigations, including the federal government’s case against Tony Rezko, a onetime fundraiser for ex-Gov. Rod Blagojevich and Barack Obama before he became president.”
According to his attorney, being “wired up” was a “risky endeavor” for Frawley.
Thomas M. Durkin, one of Frawley’s attorneys, is quoted saying that Frawley was involved in investigation of “several significant public corruption cases”.
What cases were those? Are they still pending? If they are, what did the feds just say about the mental stability of their potential confidential informant?
Plus, what impact does the judge’s words have on the alleged “Whistleblower” law suit that the Times contends Frawley filed against his relatives, the McMahon’s, that is allegedly under seal?
If the “significant public corruption cases” Frawley was involved with are buried today, why is that?
No one in the old Chicago media is asking these questions today. Perhaps they’re not authorized to ask.
Frawley is referred to in the government’s motion to arrest Tony Rezko as “CI2,” for confidential informant #2. His stability was good enough back then to take Tony off the streets while Tony awaited trial, and subsequent conviction.
But at Frawley’s sentencing, the judge tainted Frawley’s character with an implied judgment that Frawley needs medical mental treatment.
Well, perhaps he does. But not that long ago, Frawley was mentally stable enough to wear a federal wire in dangerous situations. So now he’s a head case?
Looking at this episode from a foreign perspective, is this what’s going on here in the Gulag that’s Chicago justice?
“Forensic psychiatry in Eastern Europe, and in particular in the former Soviet Union, was closely and directly involved in the systematic use of psychiatry for political purposes by declaring political and religious dissidents mentally ill.” (Block, S., & Reddaway, P., 1997, Russia’s Political Hospital, London: Gollancz.)
