Cops like this are a disgrace to the 1% of the rest of the "force" who are actually good human beings.

Another example of Chicago's elite team of outstanding police officers. If he looses 20 pounds, will he be allowed to carry a semi-automatic rifle under the police's new policy?

All in all seems like a typical, upstanding member of the Chicago police dept. Keep up the good work.

He is out of control and needs help for the alcoholism and depression. I would say a definite NO to letting him back into the mix until he first levels off and second accepts the disease that he has, which it doesn't look like he has. The Sea of Denial.

Another POS Chicago Cop...what a surprise...the CPD needs to do a major overhaul and remove scumbags like this. As for Callahan...put him in the general population at Statesville for a few years and we'll see how tough he really is.

Yet another crooked cop with connections. Dad and grandpa were both former Chicago cops. Gee, what a surprise.

Sounds like Abbate: gets mad when he doesn't get his way because a bartender stops serving him. Classic alcoholic.

Enough with this child! Fire him, already.

Of course this guy has never been convicted of any crime thanks to the ineptitude and immorality of the Chicago and suburban cops. They only in the rarest of circumstances one of their own (like if there is indisputable videotape). Ever hear of an oinker getting a dui when there wasn't a fatality involved? It doesn't happen - the hypocracy and immorality of the force is bewildering.

Then people wonder why we get guys like Drew Peterson and the guy who beat up that lady at the bar for not serving him more drinks. These cops are so used to getting away with anything and there is no accountability whatsoever. Do us a favor cops - quit your jobs - you'd save the taxpayers and dunkin donuts a whole lot of money. Does anyone really believe someone wants to become a police officer to "serve his fellow man". What a joke.

Typical CPD covering for one of their own. Just wait until one of these bozo's actually kills someone.

J-Fed really has his work cut out for him, we'll see how long Little Emperor Richie keeps him around.

did this guy go to Marist HS? If so I graduated with him and the current Chgo Ridge Police Chief (and New Lenox Mayor)back in '84. What ever happened with the Callahan case?
