Code of Silence Ending
Thank goodness. It was rough keeping quiet about it all these years:
- Chicago’s police chief says the department will attack the “code of silence” by making it easier for officers to report police misconduct and by making it tougher on officers who harass those who do come forward.
In a Wednesday interview, Superintendent Eddie Johnson says in the coming months the department will provide a hotline for officers to report police misconduct. He also says a policy is being put in place in which officers who try to intimidate or ostracize those who come forward will face discipline and could be fired.
We're kind of relieved. We didn't think Special Ed was ever going to do anything about all those IAD people cheating on the Lieutenants Exam. It's good to know that the Supernintendo is leading by example, and no one, no matter who she is sleeping with, will be spared in this all out effort to bring accountability to the Department.
