Speaking of Chicago Cops Getting Up to No-Good...

Officer's bar beating trial opens, and video is played -- chicagotribune.com If you don't remember this case, the video is at CBS News. The thing that gets me is that the lawyer is trying to say that the 5 foot 3 inch, 125 pound female bartender was actually beating up the 6 foot 1 inch 250 pound cop (not an ex-cop, he is on suspension). She did object to the fact that he punched another patron. She also refused to serve him any more alcohol (her duty according to the law, given she thought he was drunk).

I guess given the video evidence, the lawyer doesn't have any other choice, but it is things like that, that give lawyers a bad name.

Anyway, take a look for yourself; hardly a viewing pleasure.
