PO Hester Scott Cleared
Chicago Police Supt. Garry McCarthy on Tuesday ordered the badge posthumously restored to a Chicago Police officer allegedly murdered by her grandson.
That means slain Officer Hester Scott can be buried with her police star.
“Officer Scott’s star will be returned for her funeral,” Police Department spokeswoman Sarah Hamilton wrote in an e-mail to the Chicago Sun-Times.
Pressed to explain why, Hamilton wrote, “Officer Scott was a 25-year veteran of this department and a murder victim, and the superintendent felt this was the right thing to do for her and her family.”
On a side note, whomever is posting all the BS about how the president of the FOP "got it done" and how we "owe" him some sort of apology for imagined offenses, check out the timeline of his meeting with McJerseyShore and then check out the blog postings. If anything, our readers and the postings derived from our readers laid out what would eventually be the end result seen in the paper Tuesday. We allowed a lot of crap to go through our comments during the last election. Don't take that as some sort of permission to come on here and start the new campaign running on some imagined record of success. You sound like Obama.
