- Two Chicago Police officers have been stripped of their arrest powers and placed on desk duty pending an investigation into a racially motivated fight that left a sergeant with severe head injuries, a department spokesman said Friday.
On Oct. 30, the officers [...] entered an elevator with the sergeant when he made a racially disparaging comment to a group of African-Americans going to a wedding at City Hall, witnesses alleged.
Everyone notice how the word "allegedly" is added into the last part of the sentence - almost as an afterthought - as if there's already been a finding against the sergeant at the start of that paragraph. Stripping two witness officers though? This thing is getting smellier by the hour.
