Take a look at the Chicago Tribune article about a police chief from Hometown who got probation after stealing $65,000.
The money came from that fairly recent way municipalities scoop money out of miscreants’ pockets–“administrative fees” that have to be paid before a vehicle that has been towed can be retrieved from storage.
Even though this crook got probation and has to pay the money back, he copped to a felony, so will lose his police pension.
That’s the only real penalty.
Unbelievably, Cook County Judge Neera Walsh has allowed the felon to get another police job after his four-year probation is up.
But what should one expect from Crook County?
