CHICAGO – A top city of Chicago lawyer stepped down Monday after a federal judge accused him of hiding evidence in a fatal police shooting, the latest allegation of wrongdoing amid ongoing scrutiny of how the city deals with such cases.

Separately, the city agency that investigates police shootings vowed greater transparency, saying Monday that it would start divulging some details of active cases as it tries to bolster public confidence in the process.

Monday's 72-page opinion from U.S. District Judge Edmond Chang was part of a civil lawsuit brought by relatives of Darius Pinex, a black man, who was shot and killed by police during a 2011 traffic stop in Chicago.

The officers, Raoul Mosqueda and Gildardo Sierra, said they opened fire as Pinex refused orders and put his car in reverse. The officers had said they stopped Pinex because his car matched a description they heard on their police radio of a car suspected of involvement in an earlier shooting. But records emerged after the trial began that officers weren't listening to the channel broadcasting the radio traffic about the suspect's car. The judge said a city lawyer "intentionally concealed" that evidence.

I spent part of the day reading the cases they shared online from October to December 2015. Those cases can be read from the link. Only one pertaining to a fatal shooting, has a trail date (TBD) to be determined. http://www.cityofchicago.org/city/en/depts/cpb/provdrs/police_discipline.html
They IPRA ( Independent Police Review Authority ) are not established to hear and take on a case unless the superintendent recommends one.

There are no active cases unless the Superintendent of Police files charges.
Online they list the cases they have pending and the public is welcome to be in attendance when these cases are being investigated and ruled on.
Cases Currently Before the Police Board
Currently before the Police Board are the following cases in which the Superintendent of Police has filed charges against a member of the Chicago Police Department (unless otherwise noted below, the Superintendent recommended that the member be discharged from the Chicago Police Department).

All hearings take place in the Board’s hearing room and are open to the public. Unless otherwise indicated, hearings are scheduled to begin at 10:00 a.m.

Individuals wishing to attend a hearing are advised to contact the office of the Police Board the day before or the morning of the hearing to learn whether the hearing will proceed as scheduled, as cases are occasionally continued at the last minute.

What We Do
Police Discipline

Overview

The Independent Police Review Authority (IPRA), the Police Department, and the Police Board have different roles. The responsibility to receive complaints of alleged misconduct by Chicago police officers rests with IPRA. Depending on the nature of the allegations, either IPRA or the Police Department's Bureau of Internal Affairs will investigate the complaint. The Board’s role is to decide those disciplinary matters that are filed with the Board.

The Police Board's Role
The Police Board decides disciplinary matters involving allegations of serious misconduct made against members of the Chicago Police Department. The Board has the responsibility to:

  • Decide cases when the Superintendent of Police files charges to discharge or suspend a police officer for more than thirty days; and
  • Decide matters in which the Chief Administrator of the Independent Police Review Authority and the Superintendent of Police do not concur regarding discipline of a police officer.
================================

IN OTHER STUDIES DONE TODAY ( They Dont Honor the Oath )
I found the Law Enforcers Oath of honor

A public affirmation of adhering to an Oath of Honor is a powerful vehicle demonstrating ethical standards. To be successful at enhancing integrity within an organization, leaders must ensure the oath is recited frequently and displayed throughout the organization as well as ensuring ethical mentoring and role modeling are consistent, frequent and visible. The following Law Enforcement Oath of Honor is recommended as by the International Association of Chiefs of Police as symbolic statement of commitment to ethical behavior:

On my honor,
I will never betray my badge,
my integrity, my character,
or the public trust.
I will always have
the courage to hold myself
and others accountable for our actions.
I will always uphold the constitution
my community and the agency I serve.

Before any officer takes the Law Enforcement Oath of Honor, it is important that he/she understands what it means. An oath is a solemn pledge someone makes when he/she sincerely intends to do what he/she says.

I imagine this type of corruption happens everywhere. Chicago just happens to be under the microscope right now.

I am looking for participants in a study to share their experiences as former African American males served as ED/EBD/BD in the southeast. Participants ages 18-35 will be interviewed and given the opportunity to express their thoughts, feelings and impressions of their school years. If interested or for more information please contact me directly. Thanks, Cheryl
