Channel 32's "big" Scandal
- Every year in Chicago, hundreds of people sign sworn statements claiming they were victims of some kind of police officer misconduct.
The city then investigates, and many times, the claims are verified and the cops are disciplined, even fired. But sometimes, an officer is falsely accused.
And despite the not guilty verdict, instead of being returned to the streets, Officer Plewa was re-assigned to a CPD call center where he answers citizen questions.
The reason, according to a police spokeswoman: "New information may surface...which must be further investigated."
Either way, it doesn't seem like a very good system.
