Sun Times Continues Dredging
- Over the past seven years, Chicago police Officer Richard A. Rizzo has been arrested four times by fellow members of his department. The charges included domestic battery, child endangerment and aggravated assault with a gun.
Each time, officers booked Rizzo and took his mugshot. Each time, prosecutors filed criminal charges against him.
And each time, prosecutors ended up dropping the charges against the 15-year police veteran.
So do they expose the clout? Nope.
They bring up four more officers who seem to have scandal following them regularly, but never say a word about how they are protected by the political class. In Callahan's case, his wife was working for the governor (Blago we think) for years and that made him untouchable. How about the reporters hang the clout out to twist in the wind? Or would that burn too many bridges?
