Sounds like that Sgt was raped. The above statement made :
"The liquor store was closed, she testified, so she went to the Gresham District police station and reported the rape".
That implied that she had nothing better to do. If some crack came her way, she would have been raped by someone else (allegedly). I dont know about CPD disciplinary charges for fornicating on duty, but I know a "boo sheta" when I see one lol.

It sounds like the Sergeant is a mornon and the crackhead is trying to get paid millions from the city.

Even if the sex was consentual, yuck!!

He deserves to lose his job out of sheer stupidity!

Unless you've had the unfortunate experience of being sexually assaulted in the past, particularly by someone wielding as much power as a CPD officer, don't presume you know how you would react. Lots of people postpone or avoid altogether going to the police because it's a terrifying move to make even if you have nothing to hide.

From my experience and those of several friends, the Chicago police have a habit of turning victims into the guilty party, a hundred times over when a fellow officer is involved, and this serious abuse of power needs to addressed.

Addressed by who? Exasperated. The Mayor is a crook, The Police Superintendant is a Joke, the Aldermen are all worthless and the good olde boy network is stronger than ever. This kind of abuse will continue...

for those judging how the drug addicted lady reacted. there is NO NORMAL way to react to rape. every woman is different. and a drug addict even more so. i do not doubt that she probably wanted to drink herself to oblivion to forget what happened to her.

The CPD have developed a BAD (and unfortunately in many cases a well- deserved) reputation for abuse of power! I'm especially careful to watch my behavior whenever I'm in Chicago so as to NOT incur their wrath! So long as their behavior is tolerated, along with the corruption and graft that pervades much of Chicago's administration from TOP to bottom, I'll NEVER consider taking up residence in Chicago proper! Unless this situation improves and soon, Daley & the city DO NOT DESERVE to host the 2016 Olympic Games!!

Where did you get the idea that the Sergeant is Mormon, and what would that have to do with this anyway?
I don't know many women who consent to sex with a police baton and his had her DNA on it.

How do you know he raped her? Isn't that what the jury is there for?

Most rapes go unreported. It's tough for a respectable woman to do that, so even harder for a crackhead. No wonder she felt she needed a drink before going to the police.

Retired cop, thanks for your comments on the bad Sgt. Herman.

The only good cops out there are the ones who stand up and rat on the "Bad Boy Cops"! Problem: Most of the Cops
have to many skeletons in the closet and don't want to be exposed themselves. The men in blue call it
"private insurance', keeping their job. A few screw up and get caught, but the vast majority get away with many crimes while the average individual get jail time.

People have no idea what a woman goes through when raped. Her wanting a drink was a way to try to forget. Regardless of what path she was on, she did not deserve to be violated by that filthy excuse for a man let alone a cop. I hope he does some hard time.

I hope they hang him by the balls. He really thought that young lady wasn't going to tell on him and he figured if she did he will use her addiction as if she is lying. I believe her and even if she is on crack or was he didn't have to do that to her he used that baton to sexualyy assualt her as well that don't sound like she agreed to no shit like that. These cops make me sick.He wanted some black ass and the only way he could get it was to take it, cause from the looks of this jerk I'm surprise he got any from any woman. Nasty dirty low down freak.I hope them brothers in jail rape his bottom out for disrepecting a sister that is what they are there for not no stank ass cracker.

What a sick man. To have to get it on with a woman who is using/abusing drugs. I guess this is the only way her could get some. She was definately raped. Was the officer on or off duty at the time?? It seems like he was on duty. He had his baton with him.
Raped or not- this man has issues and so does this woman. They both need help for addictions. He should be suspended without pay. Maybe even fired.

When Lady Marmalade asked the Sargeant,
Voulez Vous Coucher Avec Mo Cest Soir
he should have replied no and you are under arrest
for creating an eyesore. And was sarge that hardup
that he had to play honeys rock star.

This copy knew what he was doing when he picked her as his victim. Just like that Peterson guy knew what he was doing when he said his wife left him for another man and used that her mom did this type of thing as well. They know what they are doing or they wouldnt do it!

I sat in as a juror on a case defended by this attorney and his claims were a joke. Just hearing his defense makes me think the guy is guilty as sin.
