These cops got away with beating people up and they thought they'd get away with it this time. These cops have got to learn you can't solve problems by beating people up. Violence isn't the answer.

Their attorney said the men were trying to protect a woman. Those men better hope someone tries to protect them when they are in jail. They will cry like the cowards they are. So long Jerry and Ronnie. Don't drop the soap.

Find the woman they claim to be protecting. Give her a polygraph test and go to trial.

PUT THOSE BAD BOYS AWAY! They are cringing and trying to make a deal and it is not working. You are guilty, guilty. And they still are lying, the balls of these "people".

She testified; the jury didn't buy her story either. She was also charged with obstruction in relation to this case.

I can't imagine why they were found guilty...I mean three armed pigs beating a man that they handcuffed to the point where the side of the guy's skull was kicked in? We're all better off that these thugs are off the street. Hopefully, they will receive their full sentences, and their fellow inmates will ensure that they have no opportunity for "good conduct" credits for early release.

Unfortunately, the other piece of garbage who was convicted in this case only got two years.

It's not just the thugs on the CPD who are an insult to law enforcement; we have enough hillbilly pigs that are just as bad.

Cops who drink have major issues. I was at a cop bar when one jerk slapped his 9mm on the bar daring someone to f*** with him and his boys. After mouthing off a few racial remarks, he laughed and put the gun away. For some reason, no one laughed. This was at Dugan's on Halsted, a notorious cop bar.
