the crap in Chicago PD; but...
Mayor Rahm Emanuel's administration asked a federal judge Monday to set
aside a jury verdict in the infamous videotaped beating of a female
bartender by an off-duty Chicago police officer — essentially agreeing
to pay the woman $850,000 now in return for erasing the jury's finding that a police "code of silence" protected the cop.
request is an attempt to prevent last month's damaging verdict from
being cited by lawyers in other lawsuits against the Police Department.
Which brings up the question, just how many cases ARE there pending with connection to this?
