Chicago Cop (Finally) Suspended For Demanding Free Coffee

The Best Photo Illustration Ever

(How do you like my awesome photo illustration? Can I work for the Sun-Times, you think?)

A Chicago Police officer has been suspended and ordered into counseling after she was found guilty of demanding free Starbucks coffee from six different stores on the North Side from 2001 to 2004, sometimes flashing her badge, displaying her gun and screaming at employees.

Officer Barbara Nevers of the Belmont police district was suspended for more than 15 months, according to records the Chicago Police Board released Thursday. [Sun-Times]

I’m all for due process, but it’s interesting that it took four years for this officer to be suspended (and that’s suspended, not fired). Maybe the police board were similarly caffiene-deprived and so they were all asleep.
