A group of cops laughed at lesbians who had been attacked in a hate crime. A report wasn't filed at the scene - why bother they were just a bunch of dykes. 3 days later a report was filed by the gay/lesbian liaison's office.
So now the original cops might be in hot water.
Chief Cathy Lanier says that she'll punish them severely if she has to, possibly firing a group of seven if the results of an investigation prove that occurred.IF. That is a really big word when it comes to police investigating police. Maybe I am just jaded by my knowledge of how things work in Chicago, but I would bet good money that these cops don't get much beyond a slap on the wrist. I would like to be wrong; I would like to believe that bigots get thrown off police forces, but I don't believe that they do.
