Don't know how we missed this story

Got to the Metro section of the Tribune last Wednesday (22 June) and saw an article titled "Corrupt Cop earns Leniency." Since the online Trib requires registration and the article is a week old anyway, we'll just quote from Rudolph Bush's article...

"Myers (lawyer for the cop) argued that Polk's (the corrupt Forest Preserve cop in question) cooperation was absolute. That includes an ongoing effort "involving a thoroughly corrupt Chicago police officer that has yet to be arrested," he added."

We'd hope that this was just a misquote and CPD wasn't involved, but when you read the laundry list of persons he helped to convict (including two Illinois parole agents, two Cook County sheriffs, two Robbins POs, a former Seattle detective and a CSX railroad cop) along with other info, we'd say it's time to batten down the hatches for another corruption scandal.

POlk couldnt get hired by CPD because his previous arrests for shop lifting. The old man tried to get personell to look the other way. Record was then expunged, he got hired thru the 8th Ward organization as a Forest Preserve Cop, temporary employee. Appointed every ninety days until he passed the written exam. Sorry to say the copper he is going to testify against is a CPD PO formerly of the Forest Preserve Police. They make organized crime look like a legit business.
