Re-opening Old Cases
- A Chicago police officer has been indicted on federal civil rights charges for shooting into a car full of teenagers, marking the first time federal authorities have brought charges against one of the city's officers for a shooting in the last 15 years.
Officer [...], 41, was captured on video shooting repeatedly into the car as it backed away from him on the South Side in December 2013, wounding two teens inside.
In an indictment announced Friday, [the officer] was charged with two counts of deprivation of rights under the color of law alleging he used unreasonable force. He is free on his own recognizance and due to make his first appearance in federal court Thursday, court records show.
Nearly three years later. We don't know about you, but stories like this make us want to go right out and stop everything on two legs or four wheels, regardless of the consequences, because gosh darn it, this city, these politicians, this "community" is worth it!
