The news is out: [Dion Boyd, a 29-year veteran of the Chicago Police Department, took his own life this week only 13 days after being promoted to deputy chief of criminal networks.
Boyd’s body was found July 28 at the Chicago Police Department’s Homan Square Detention Center, a detention block where claims of abuse have festered for years, according to CBS Chicago. The site has been the subject of journalistic investigations, federal lawsuits and, more recently, protests.

Cops take their own lives sometimes… many times.
