When it Rains, It Pours
Local cops in the news all over the place. Some good, some bad:
- Former Commander pleads guilty (Sun Times; Channel 7). Usually, when you switch your plea this quick, it's because (A) they have you dead to rights and you're hoping by sparing them the expense of a trial, they'll go easy on you, or (B) you're cooperating. Anyone out there nervous?
- Bad accident on the South side (Tribune coverage). The two cops injuries are "not life threatening," but that doesn't mean everything is dandy. We read in one comment that one might be paralyzed. Keep them in your thoughts people.
- Police shootout in 025 (Channel 5; Channel 7). Robbery pattern cleared and one bad guy dead. Not a bad night's work and a boatload of awards for people down the line. Good job.
