Another police brutality story

Sadly, it appears another off-duty Chicago cop lost it and beat up a teenager over the weekend. While there appears to have been some nasty threats involved, the judge did not go lightly on the cop and gave him $100,000 bail.With these stories becoming more and more common here, I don’t understand why our local boys aren’t learning a lesson. If you had the common sense to put on a mask and a cape before you pummeled civilians, people would just think Chicago was cool.

    Agreed. But if having a badge and gun gives someone a sense of invincibility, well, I think police culture needs to change, or at least be perceived differerently.

    Right, so, capes and masks.
