In 702 shootings by Chicago police, zero federal civil rights charges filed
When officers of the Chicago Police Department are involved killing civilians, why is their “punishment” to be allowed to retire, or even be fired, without any criminal charges ever filed? The reason is that the police are not here “to serve and protect” the people, but to operate as a paramilitary force to protect drug trafficking and other rackets that go all the way to the top of the U.S. power structure.
For example, when a tactical squad operating in the 15th District greatly reduced drug trafficking and won many awards for doing so, the CPD framed seven officers and moved others out of the district to desk jobs in order to restore the previous levels of drug trafficking, as the statistics show. All the evidence for this is on this website.
