- Chicago police have launched an investigation after a man came forward with video and pictures that appear to show two police officers sleeping in their squad cars Friday morning.
ABC7 Chicago obtained that video and the pictures and talked to the man, who did not want to be identified.
The pictures show one officer sitting in the passenger seat of a marked squad car, eyes closed, head back. One parking spot over, a photo shows another officer in the passenger seat of a squad roll; same situation.
The human body is reluctant to function properly in the absence of sunlight. Cops are no different than any other overnight worker. They have ups and downs and lapses in judgment. Consider this a tiny lapse.
