John Wayne Gacy was known to his suburban Chicago neighbors as an affable businessman, a party host and a clown named Pogo. But 40 years ago, the search for a missing Chicago-area student led police to his doorstep. The nightmare they found inside revealed Gacy to be one of America’s most notorious serial killers and forever shattered the image of the safe suburban community.

The Chicago Tribune’s story about six of John Gacy’s victims still being unidentified reminds me of the story brought back by a State Rep. who attended his execution.

From the room where he was killed, there was a flight of stairs down to where the hearse was waiting.

I was told the guards tossed him down steps.

    And, according to the link, well off enough to give the Jimmy Carter campaign $5,000.

  4. Ladies,and gentlemen, today’s Republican party!

    Actively excusing the multiple felon that is their current president to snigger over the misdeeds of of a Democrat precinct committeeman who’s been dead for thirty years .

    You can bet if Gacy was a Republican, you’d all be making excuses for him.

  5. “Misdeeds” severely understates John Gacy’s murders.

    See Tribune storu:

  6. Say what you want about this blog, but it helps keep Democrats off Illinois streets.

  7. What is it about Democrats in Chicago that produce the likes of Gacy and others who have gone to jail. Such as Rod Blago, Mel Reynolds, Dan Rostenkowski, former govs Dan Walker, Otto Kerner.

    Of course there was the community organizer guy who was merely grossly incompetent.

    Oh good god.

    Denny Hastert and George Ryan say hi.

    Don’t pretend that this is a Democratic problem.
