Shut Up Dick
Chicago Police Supt. Jody Weis did the right thing by stripping six officers and a sergeant of their police powers because one of them stands accused of punching a suspect in handcuffs as the others “watched,” Mayor Daley said today.
“That’s unacceptable conduct. That’s unacceptable here or anyplace else. . . . I’m glad the superintendent did what is necessary,” Daley told reporters after dedicating a $10 million campus park at Marshall Metro High School at 3250 W. Adams.
But the sergeant accused of beating the suspect doesn’t appear to have done anything wrong, according to his attorney, Robert Kuzas, who spoke to him after he was stripped of his police powers Friday.
“This is the superintendent’s office putting the cart before the horse without any investigation,” Kuzas said.
