Here We Go Again
It just never ends. Channel 2 opens the coverage:
- An attorney is claiming four men were brutally beaten a few months ago by off-duty Chicago Police officers in a bar, less than a week after an officer was charged in a similar incident.
Their attorney says the attack was caught on tape, although the video has not been released.
Oh, but it will be released. Very shortly. You can take that to the bank. The Tribune also covers this one:
- Prosecutors are investigating allegations that six off-duty Chicago cops were caught on a downtown bar's video camera beating four businessmen, the second such incident in recent months, law enforcement sources said.
In the Dec. 15 beating at the Jefferson Tap and Grille, one alleged victim required reconstructive surgery on his face and another suffered four broken ribs, said Sally Saltzberg, a lawyer for the men.
We alluded to a couple of scandals breaking. We expected both of these. There's still a couple more out there that we know of and god knows how many we don't. We'll have a follow up post on this shortly - probably after midnight with our regularly scheduled updates.
