Why is this not making the front page news? If this was a corporation, they’d be in the news for weeks, and become synonymous with corruption and violence (as Enron has become). But because it’s the police, it’s just another news item!
And NONE OF THEM WILL BE FIRED!!!
After weeks of worsening revelations about the Chicago Police Department’s elite Special Operations Section, a beleaguered interim superintendent finally pulled the plug Tuesday, disbanding the scandal-plagued unit and sending most of its officers back to more strictly supervised assignments.
The recent incidents of police misconduct, which include charges that SOS officers robbed and kidnapped people, and that one accused officer plotted to murder another, have been “disheartening and demoralizing, especially for officers who serve honorably every day,” interim Supt. Dana Starks said Tuesday at a news conference called to announce the abrupt disbanding of SOS.
