The 36-year-old officer was charged with drunken driving and reckless homicide after his SUV broadsided a car on Thanksgiving 2007.

The Chicago “Way”
CPD has officially covered up another murder by one of their own. Sleep well boys and girls.
Had this creep done this to my family I'd caption that picture "Dead Man Walking".
Typical corruption for the statist Chicago oligarchy.
I’m sure Obama is proud.
I’m holding my breath for Obama to say this cop acted stupidly. Not.
Exactly... Chicago's gun ban notwithstanding.
You must be a mind reader. That is exactly what I was going to say. :-)
This is dirty from the word “go” and any of our resident cop haters will tell you that I am NOT one of them. When the rubber hits the road, I defend the cop.
Not this time. This fothermucker deserved exactly what would have happened to any NON cop in the same case.
Violence begets violence.
Sometimes a family has to do what a family has to do.
“Do as I say, not as I do”. I would say it is the general state of the country, not just Chicago (although they are a poster child for corruption). Cops all over the country do this, they are above the law.
What ever happened to the Chicago cop who beat up the female bartender a couple of years ago? Nothing?
Ya chicago way ...melding the mafia with government.
This is not at all uncommon. The problem with the probable cause is that his fellow officers screwed up the case deliberately. They committed a crime and will get away with it. I have seen this personally too many times. They never follow procedure if they have the slightest chance of getting away with it.
With due condolences to the family, perhaps someone should point out that thousands of American’s have been killed by drunken illegals over the years and we hear not a PEEP out of the victims or media about “racism” or the unfairness of it all...
