Chicago PD - Things Are Going to Get Worse

Chicago's Thick Blue Wall - Reason Magazine The subtitle is "The Windy City's notoriously aggressive police department fights for less accountability." The sad thing is, they will probably win this fight.

The CPD is taking steps to ensure that no one will even try to report rogue cops. Not really surprising given the amount of money the city spends every year settling claims. If no one reports any cop, problem solved.

I can't really say anything more than is the article. It covers current problems, historic cases, etc. It covers the fact that it is legal to photograph and video officers (with a few exceptions like at nuclear power stations) doing their work. (Even though people are routinely arrested for doing so.) Go take a look.
