Frankly, I am not even the slightest bit surprised by this story. In other words there is so much corruption in government, and including by those who are supposedly doing the regulating and in charge of catching the bad guys, and such as for instance in many police departments and DA's offices, that therefore it is often impossible to tell who are the good guys and who are the bad guys.

Corrupt cops, wouldn't we be more surprised if this wasn't a story? Is there really a difference between cops and criminals? Maybe the criminals are at least more professional.

Funny, before Eric Kellogg arrived as Harvey's savior, the police fought crime, rather than were the criminals themselves. This kind of behavior never happened on Nick Graves watch. Harvey was a fine community when I went to TTHS. WTF happened?

For all you cop haters, these clowns were never real cops, just thugs who managed to get hired by A: Harvey...(no more needed said) and B: Crook County where its leader is the biggest crook of all.

With the HUGE s*h*!t storm going on in Chicago with billion$ rolling in, people losing their jobs, losing their homes, taxes skyrocketing, taxes, fees, taxes, fees and tons and tons more on the way, we are BEGGING the Feds to open the books, investigate where the $$$ is going, start indicting people who deseve it, clean up the corruption, HELP US.....BUT NO.

Way to go Feds, keep making a big deal out of catching the guppies. That's all you are good at. Either you are scared of the Chicago Machine or they got you paid off.

Drugs involved. Hmmmmm. Thugs and idiots wearing the uniform, instead of gang colors. No surprise.

Hope they get their ebonic speaking ignorant selves some alone time with bubba in prison. Sadly, they are small potatoes of the corruption/scams in this city.

The FBI should go a little further south to S. Chicago Heights. They would find more than corrupt cops. The entire town is on the take from the top all the way to the bottom. Its appalling what they get away with.

Every week in the USA a police officier is either convicted of a crime or is facing criminial allegations and the Chicago police department is no exception.
Cops will take WHATEVER action necessary to JUSTIFY the outcome they seek and you are naive to think differantly.

And other developing stories that indicate society has allowed the ignorant and stupid members to assume positions of power, ignore social behaviors, and hands-off by the media and most of the public.
- Black politicians demanding a black replace Obama in his Senate position. That seems racists, but then again it probably isn't, unless you happen to be white.
- Balfour the "Buckwheat Look A Like" arrested for the Hudson murders. This whole story is ripe with the problems in the black culture.
* Drugs
* Convict
* Multiple women
* Mother marries thug
* Mother brings thug in home with 5 yr old
* Violence
* Guns
* Gangs (dead brother was a banger)
* Buckwheat mother's intelligence is obvious when she speaks on the news.
What a culture.
dont break your arms beating yourself on the chest mr, whites commit just as many hideous crimes as blacks do if not more. while your in here posting racist B.S. look in the mirror

cops have been on the take since the days of capone, whats the excuse for them? being from harvey or crook county has nothing to do with it, cops are opritunistic, if they get a chance to get paid, there is nothing that will stop them, being a cop doesnt make you a better human than a civilian, sure there are some good cops out there, it has nothing to do with what city they patrol in, so dont go there, everytime cops do somthing wrong, other cops start swarming the board trying to justify it. dirty cops come in all shape sizes and colors. look at the ex police cheif in chicago that being indicted for torturing arrestees

you know it is against the law to identify yourself as a cop and you are not one mr intelligent,your ip number can be traced, or did you know this? and if you are a cop, reading this story and watching you post, everyone in here would only have to look at your racist comments and figure out where corruption starts. grow up little man, get out of the dark ages,i know your about to go to your back yard and teach your 5 year old son how to shoot a fire arm, we will see him on the news in about 10 years when he shoots up his highschool because he has no friends and no one will play with him. you are the problem, people like you who have nothing else to do in life but spill racial garbage, on the internet of course, i dont take you as a person with enough balls to talk this trash in person,or maybe you will wind up like mr peterson, the bolingbrooke coward who murderd 2 of his wives. you also have a wonderful culture a******
