This
week, police in Chicago
stopped responding immediately to 911 calls that don’t involve
a criminal still on the scene or a victim in imminent danger.
Limited resources, though, aren’t stopping the police union from

demanding a 12 percent pay raise and a $3,000 bonus for being
required to live in the city of Chicago. These demands come even as
the city prepares to approve a $4.1 million settlement for the
fatal shooting of an unarmed man by one of Chicago’s finest. 
From
the Chicago Tribune:A video of the incident shows Officer Gildardo Sierra
firing three shots into Flint Farmer’s back as the South Side man
lay bleeding on a parkway early on June 7, 2011. The incident was
the third shooting by Sierra in six months – and the second
fatality, records show…The Police Department ruled Farmer’s shooting justified, but
Superintendent Garry McCarthy later told the Tribune that he
considered the case “a big problem” and that the officer involved
should not have been on the street given his history of
shootings.It’s not the first settlement the city is paying because of its
police officers
this year:The proposed settlement comes just a month after
aldermen voted to pay a combined $33 million to settle police
misconduct cases involving Christina Eilman, a mentally ill woman
who wandered out of a South Side police station and into horrific
danger six years ago, as well as a victim of notorious police Cmdr.
Jon Burge.Late last year a federal jury
found the city of Chicago responsible for the police
department’s “code of silence.” No word on how much, if at all,
this will affect the police union’s leveraging power in contract
negotiations.
