I know this Callahan mope is a disgrace to his badge and his uniform. But it never ceases to amaze me how frequently human scum like this are entrusted with police duty. And how the lowlifves are protected and enabled when they act out.

I have more of a question rather than a comment. WHAT KIND OF PEOPLE ARE RESPONSIBLE FOR ENFORCING LAWS IN THIS COUNTRY. This man is clearly insane and shouldn't even be a security guard at an outhouse.

I can't agree with you more.

This just shows how corrupt the cops are in the northern suburbs. This is a constant problem but whey have immunity from all legal repercussion because their police buddies will stick up for them and lie if they have to. Keep in the mind, the article said he is on paid leave!

I am sure that those two had it coming. Next time you are in trouble, call two old men! I hope that they allowed him the courtesy of a seven hour post incident sobriety test.

Its got to be hard to find all the bad apples.... but a previous incident happened "THE BLUE WALL" appears. He should have been dismissed earlier or at least sent to Pysc Ward for evaluation.

Weiss and Daley all eyes are on you on this one---come on fellows lets see what you come up with now that the whole wide and I mean wide World knows what this Citys cops reputation is. Weiss says he'll change that---Ok Jody, here's your chance..of course if the goof is found guilty. But passed out in the bushes isnt a good sign that he'll remember anything at his hearing of the actual event.

Than to learn Cline wanted to fire him but this great Police Board wouldnt let him---thank Police Board, you're the same goofs who groomed the Abbattes of this force.

Weiss better crack this one good and the other cops on the force should keep their mouths shut on protecting such a bad seed. We;ll see if Weiss and Daley are true to their word on how this is handled.

Please read the stories beyond the headline. He was employed by the Chicago Police Dept. and just happened to be doing his drinking in the Northern suburbs. Not that I suppose it matters all that much as your point may well aplly to both groups.

I don't see why this is even in the news. There was a bar fight- happens all the time in every town every weekend. Why this gets press I don't know. He was off duty and in his personal time, didn't discharge a weapon. We weren't there and we didn't know what circumstances led to this. For all we know this officer was being harrassed and needed to defend himself.

I give him the benefit of the doubt since he is an officer and protects the people. These things happen.

The swift sword of Justice should be speedily brought to bear on this (and other) rogue law enforcement nut-cases.

This type of behavior needs decapitating without further piddling around by Daley, et al.

You are a complete idiot. What kind of people? Lets paint all the Law Enforcement people in this country with the same brush.

I think the cops need better mental health care to get them off the the bottle.

These cops drink too much.

They need to make a special force out these cops. Keep them in a cage and let them out only when it is time to capture a wild animal, like a cougar, bare handed.

If these allegations are found to be true,he should be fired. I could talk until i am blue in the face how this does not represent the majority of us but it will be a losing battle.
