An ex-Chicago cop was sentenced Tuesday to almost 11 years in prison for robbing drug dealers -- a case that prompted the judge to declare he's tired of the growing pace of wrongdoing by police officers.

"In this city, it seems to me we are bombarded by stories and cases and prosecutions of police misconduct," said U.S. District Judge Robert Gettleman, who imposed the sentence on Richard Doroniuk. "It's been accelerating. .. . It's very discouraging.

"There's really nobody more powerful than a policeman in a uniform with a badge and a gun," Gettleman said. "Everyone wants to see the police as their protectors."

Well i for one am happy to see a dirty cop finally receive a sentence of jailtime fitting his wrong doings. I commend this judge for making sure that this ex-officer serves time for crimes he committed as an officer.

Now if we can just get more judges that think like this one, and understand as this judge does just how much power police officers have.
