Chicago PD Have Paid Out Almost $100 Million In 2 Months Over Police Misconduct

The city of Chicago has agreed to pay $20 million to settle a code-of-silence lawsuit brought by the families of two young men killed in a fiery drunken driving crash caused by an off-duty police detective, sources told the Chicago Tribune.

The agreement to pay $10 million each to relatives of Andrew Cazares and Fausto Manzera was reached in dramatic fashion earlier this month after it was revealed that key documents involving an alcohol-fueled bar fight in detective Joseph Frugoli’s past had been improperly withheld.

The amount of the agreement was not made public, but sources have since confirmed the figure to the Tribune. The settlement must still be green-lighted by the city’s Finance Committee before going to the full City Council for a vote. That could happen as soon as next month.

If approved, it would mark yet another massive payout for the city in a police misconduct suit. In the past two months alone, nearly $100 million in judgments have been assessed against the city for police-related cases, including a record $44.7 million jury verdict in October for a man who was shot by his childhood friend, Officer Patrick Kelly, in an off-duty incident. Earlier this month, the City Council approved a $31 million payout for the “Englewood Four,” who each spent some 15 years in prison for a 1994 🤬 and murder before DNA linked the crime to a convicted killer.

    i imagine between taxes and poor spending, it basically evaporates. real problem is that these payments are not successfully curing the police agencies in question of their 🤬 .

    Police officers should have to buy insurance as a condition of employment. The tax payers shouldn't have to be on the hook for 🤬 like this. Cops should have to buy a private insurance policy that covers the cost of misconduct charges and lawsuits. If you have a 🤬 poor history and can't afford the coverage or you can't find anyone to cover you than you can't get the job. No different than auto insurance. You are rated and charged based on the level of risk which is based on your background. The same principle could be applied to gun owners. If you can't get or afford insurance than you can't get the gun. It's a market based solution to a problem that is begging for a solution. It takes the tax payers off the hook and it applies the princple of personal responsibility that law enforcement is always talking about. Cities that are already cash strapped shouldn't have to bear the financial burden of a pos killer cop when they are already struggling to fund the school system, mass transit, public health, etc.

    True.



    Those payouts will only be useful if it results in cutting police salaries.



    Only problem is, they'd just run to their Union because that's probably not in their contract.
