The news is out: [The Chicago Police Department disciplined 18 police officers caught lounging in a congressman’s office and eating popcorn while looters ransacked the city last summer, The New York Post reported.
The department suspended 17 of the officers and reprimanded the 18th at the time, a police spokeswoman told the newspaper.
Sally Brown, Chicago police department spokeswoman, confirmed to The Post that “the members have been notified of the results of the investigation and each member may elect to challenge the decisions based on their collective bargaining agreements.”
A video from Congressman Bobby Rush’s office and published by ABC Chicago showed the police officers “lounging,” brewing coffee, and making snacks while looting and chaos surrounded the building.]
That’s what public servants do best.
