These stories coming about about chicago police on tape beating people should be taken very seriously.I for one am not surprised I was married to a chgo policeman close to 20 years and I wish there was a video in every room in the house.And then when the police were called he would inform them he's an officer and he knew this person or that person they would end up as the brothers they try to be no report no arrest.and there was nothing ever done. Leaving him was hard because he was very violent and I was so afraid of him it took years of violence and actually starting to feel life wasn't worth living any more. so i left with my kids We are seeing tapes in the media but i'm wondering about those closed doors where there's no cameras

There have been many years of corruption in the CPD. Many new commanders who were going to come in and clean things up. The members of the rank and file that need to be dismissed have seen before that things did not change so why should they take the new commander seriously this time. It will take some time for him to find and weed out the bad cops. In the mean time these bad cops are also seeing that nothing is changing in the overall political scene so they feel that they can just wait things out. The message that needs to be sent to the bad cops is only half done with a new commander, Chicago also needs to elect new political leadership to send the message that the people of Chicago are sick and tired of the corruption that starts on the streets with bad cops and runs all the way up to the Mayors office!! Until that is done get used to the stories.

What you don't understand is these officers but them selfs in the line of fire every day...passing out voting ballots, sleeping on duty as tree's are cut down, hiding as the gangs are shooting it out, protecting me and my lackies like a private little army of Idie Amin I some times feel ahhh.. so what if you open your mouth to a cop you need a punch in the face. A 62 yeqr old women is looking for trouble eating in a restaurant with her husband. We need the Childrens museum that is more important here ....thats why the police and little jody need m-16's so they could really deal with peolpe like this and of cousre we "know" a few "will" get stolen but this is Chicago, Vote fraud, payoffs, kickbacks, Crook County, just toss the money over the fence in a bag, dad taught me that trick.
