Koschman Lt Quits
- Lt. Denis Walsh has resigned from the Chicago Police Department one week after interim Supt. John Escalante moved to fire him over his role in the 2011 reinvestigation of David Koschman’s killing — a case that was closed without charges against a nephew of then-Mayor Richard M. Daley.
Walsh’s resignation ends the disciplinary case that Escalante filed against him with the Chicago Police Board, which decides punishments for cops.
So as all the big-wigs escape investigation and retire to nice pensions, the ones left without a chair are looking at a year off with no pay. Seems completely fair.
