The U.S. Justice Department (Loretta Lynch presiding) has announced their report about the Chicago Police Department.

The "investigation" started over a year ago and was apparently triggered by an incident.

The JD say police there use(d) excessive force routinely, and have (had) a code of silence about racial discrimination.

Well where will this lead ?

How has the looming investigation(s) affected crime ?


U.S. Justice Department blasts Chicago police over excessive force

Chicago's police routinely used excessive force, tolerated racially discriminatory conduct and often maintained a "code of silence" among officers to thwart investigations into misconduct, federal officials said in a blistering report released on Friday.

The U.S. Department of Justice civil rights probe began in December 2015 following the release of video footage showing Laquan McDonald, a black teenager, being fatally shot by white police officer Jason Van Dyke. The video's release sparked several days of protests and led to the ouster of Chicago's police chief and calls for Mayor Rahm Emanuel to resign.

The McDonald shooting was just one of many high-profile incidents that thrust Chicago and other cities into a national debate over excessive use of force by police against minorities.

Next Friday Loretta Lynch and everything she did to promote a race war and divide the country and promote violence toward police officers will come to a end! I hope Sessions goes after her and Holder both! Not saying that there are issues in our JUDICIAL system that needs addressed, there are.

Now that they've got that settled, perhaps the DOJ could devote the same amount of attention to Chicago's insane post-apocalyptic crime rate.

I don't see the problem with excessive force when you're the guy with a target on your back in a city full of thugs that would rather kill you than be respectful of your law and order.

and you deal with this every. single. day.... some for years

and she is surprised when they have a different reaction than most?

Excessive force is needed in that region...it should be promoted.

And no, I don't care about the slippery slope that comes with it.

There is no such thing as excessive force in Chicago.

Exactly. Why go after those in Law Enforcement. Go after those who create the laws and sentence you to the criminal factory we call our prison system.

The reason the bad LEO's get a light sentence or no sentence at all is because of the judges and politicians who depend on being protected by them!

What a freakin mess!

You do realize Chicago is one of the most politically corrupt cities out there correct? The schools, police, and governance are extremely poor and corrupt.

Chicago isn't insane only because of its citizens. It's insane because the governance has created a garbage dump for nearly a century.

Not sure how aware you guys are that this stuff happens because of bad police and mayors at high levels.

The people profiting from the drugs don't do it without a lot of officials helping and taking bribes.

Just food for thought before you go and say every person there is a thug and deserves to be mishandled by police because it is a war zone.

The good people are double screwed. By the cops and the gangs.

Make that triple. The mayor and feds.


Here are just some basic facts of the people they have actually caught.

That is easy to say unless you are walking down a street in Chicago just minding your own business and you reach into your jacket for your phone as a police officer drives by and they open fire thinking you are pulling a gun since they have that target on their backs, as you mention..

You go after law enforcement because they are unequivocally part of the problem in Chicago with a long history of violence and corruption. I would say the police, mayors office, and schools are the biggest problems in Chicago.

You are fooling yourself and lack a historical context if you think Chicago police are not an issue. How do you think the gangs and drugs stay on the streets? Bribes.

Whole departments have been questioned. Hell a high level officer had a massive jewel theft operation not long ago.

What a stupid thing to say considering the cops are a major part of the reason those thugs exist. Maybe pick up a book and read about the most corrupt city in the US.

I guess all those drugs get moved without help? Have you ever read about the amount of corruption and cops busted taking bribes?

This is the same thing with going after mexican illegals. The blame is totally misplaced to the victims of corruption.

Immigrants put a massive surplus into the economy with taxes and spending. Far more than they take.

The employers completely cheat taxes and get zero blame.

That's generally what happens in liberal ran cities. Baltimore is the same way, and Los Angeles, and New York.

LA and NY are nothing like Chicago or detroit.

It goes way beyond partisan politics.


Both parties have plenty of history of corruption. But go ahead and keep drinking the Kool aid, it's always the other guys fault right?
