Chicago: The Land of Special Treatment?

Anyway, one judge seems to think it may be the case. Judge rips police and prosecutors in ordering special prosecutor to look into the investigation into the death of David Koschman - Then-Mayor Daley's nephew, Richard "R.J." Vanecko, got into a fight, in which the guy he was fighting fell and hit his head, and eventually died.
Koschman, 21, had been drinking in the Rush Street night-life district early April 25, 2004, when he and friends argued with a group that included Vanecko. During the altercation, Koschman was punched or shoved, causing him to fall back and hit his head on the street. He died 11 days later. No charges were ever filed.
No charges were filed against a scion of the Daley-clan, Chicago's ruling family for living memory.

Now why would you think politics (the Chicago word is "clout") had anything to do with that. So now there will be a special investigator to double check that the politics of Chicago didn't play a role. (Let me tell you something, at least as far back as Daley's old man, politics plays a roll in everything in Chicago. "Don't make no waves; don't back no losers.")
