Description

The WFLD Investigative team exposes two major scandals in the Chicago Police Department. One scandal involved three officers taking an $8,000 payoff from Chicago residents who the policemen were threatening to arrest. The second scandal story began with an anonymous tip regarding "drinking parties" on police property. The authors reveal that one such party may have contributed to the hit-and-run killing of an elderly woman by a drunken Chicago policeman.
