- Ending a nearly two-year investigation, Cook County prosecutors said Tuesday they will not charge any Chicago police officers in a 2005 fatal shooting of a motorist who was riddled with bullets after he allegedly tried to drive over an officer.
Although the shooting of Emmanuel Lopez initially was ruled by police to be justified, the Cook County state's attorney's office opened an investigation in 2006 after a private attorney brought forward evidence that contradicted the accounts of the five involved officers.
Charges would have sent shock waves through a Police Department already under siege for a string of misconduct scandals.
We wouldn't put it past him. And truly, that is a sad commentary on his regime.
