Burge keeps his pension



Full Story Link



The police pension board had to decide Thursday whether Burge's conviction for lying about the torture of criminal suspects in 2003 was "relating to or arising out of or in connection with" his job as a police officer.


Four board members on the police pension board, all current or former Chicago cops, elected by fellow cops, decided his perjury conviction for lying about the torture of suspects was unrelated to police work.

Huh? So this filthy SOB who didn't stop the cops working for him from torturing suspects - and then lied about it under oath. Gets convicted of perjury and sentenced to 4.5 years on prison - and the taxpayers have to pay him $3000 a month for LIFE - because some other cops decided that it wasn't related to his police work.

No *&^&*^ Way. how is this not related to his police work. He did it while on the job. If I had to chose one word to describe our government it would be complete unadulterated Corruption. Disgusting.

Ahhh, what an awesome system we live under. ugh. Thin Blue Line much? This is beyond ridiculous and should not be allowed to happen. This guys pension should be given as restitution to the victims.... but then that would make sense.

Not suprised one bit with this story....heck, heres a story for you in my town....

BENTONVILLE — A former Bella Vista police officer was sentenced to 30 days in jail and fined $1,000 on Thursday after pleading guilty to a misdemeanor charge in connection with the fatal shooting of James Ahern.

Coleman Brackney was charged with manslaughter, a Class C felony punishable with a prison sentence ranging from three to 10 years.

Brackney pleaded guilty to negligent homicide, a Class A misdemeanor, under an agreement attorney Drew Miller reached with Benton County Prosecuting Attorney Van Stone.

A Class A misdemeanor can carry up to a year in jail and a fine up to $1,000.

Brackney shot and killed Ahern on Jan. 20 after a vehicle chase, court documents show.

An Arkansas State Police investigation determined Ahern was shot six times. Investigators said the sixth shot came after Ahern appeared to be surrendering and would not have had use of his right arm because of an earlier round fired by Brackney, according to court documents.
