    Can't believe the department fired him. I've been told here that cops break the laws 90% of the time but cover up for each other.

    4 people voted against firing him. Disgusting.
    ---

    Believed to have been taken in a West Side police station between 1999 and 2003, the Polaroid photo was given to the city by the feds in 2013 and resulted in McDermott, a clout-heavy cop, being fired last year by the police board in a 5-to-4 vote. The four dissenters said McDermott should only have been suspended. But a majority of the board wrote that “appearing to treat an African-American man not as a human being but as a hunted animal is disgraceful and shocks the conscience.”

    Looks like the reggie is making a silly face which probably means he was in on the joke.

    Right... they basically do what they want when they want and never get fired for anything... and this douche gets fired? He deserved it, but damn, they might wanna do some firing over the more serious issues.

    Sure, I am sure he was in a super carefree, humorous mood and not intimidated at all:

    Finnigan is a notoriously dirty ex-cop who was a member of the police department’s elite Special Operations Section (SOS) until 2006, when he was charged with leading a gang of fellow officers who robbed suspects, illegally invaded homes and stole thousands of dollars in cash. He’s now serving 12 years in federal prison.

    In a 2012 interview with Playboy, Finnigan admitted the SOS beat and tortured multiple suspects, and described shutting down an internal affairs investigation by appealing to one of his comrades in blue who worked in the Internal Affairs Division.

    The Sun-Times reports that federal authorities gave the photo to Chicago Police in 2013, after Finnigan’s prosecution. As a result, a police board last year voted to fire McDermott — but only by a 5-4 margin.

    Of course he was. The pick was taken over a decade ago, but we need to ramp up the cop hate.

    if a white guy was wearing the antlers, i'd find it funny. as it's a black guy, it is highly offensive and those involved should be shot.


    at this point, i could give a shit what happens to violent criminals.
    chain them to a wall 23 hours a day. a little gruel, a little water...a have a nice day sign in their cell.
