The City wouldn't hire unqualified people and put them in a position to actually do real damage, would they? We mean besides Special Ed and his merry cabal of cheating hacks:
- The union that represents Chicago Police officers says that investigators hired by the city to look into officer-involved deaths don’t meet the state’s minimum training requirements, according to a lawsuit filed Thursday in Cook County Circuit Court.
The Fraternal Order of Police Lodge No. 7 is asking a court to rule that the city is not in compliance with the requirements of the Illinois Police Training (IPTA) and Police and Community Relations Improvement (PCRIA) acts, according to the suit, which seeks unspecified damages and to compel the city to become compliant.
The PCRIA, which took effect Jan. 1, requires at least one of the investigators looking into an officer-involved death be certified by the Illinois Law Enforcement Training Standards Board as a lead homicide investigator, or be approved by the board for training of similar standards, the suit states.
The FOP claims the Independent Police Review Authority (IPRA), which investigates officer-involved deaths in Chicago, does not currently, nor did it before, have lead investigators that met the state’s standards, according to the suit.
The City doesn't want qualified people investigating - they might actually follow the law and determine that via policy, most police shootings are actually justified, and therefore legal. That isn't politically palatable to certain segments of the community, so Rahm can't have qualified people looking around. He needs people who will do what they're told when it comes time to have someone under the bus to save a politicians' ass.
