Chicago, IL—If investigators really thought there was a Kidnapping/Sexual Assault involving two of their own they’d have been charged and had taken the perpwalk by now. I’m not making light of the media reports of the accusations.
Right now the published reports seem to indicate that a drunken and very promiscuous young woman willingly engaged in public sex in a police vehicle, played strip-poker with the two cops when she finally degenerated into a psychotic crisis.
Was a crime involved? Was it only misdemeanor, Public Indecency? Right now, Kidnapping and Sexual Assault sounds very unlikely.
There are a lot of unanswered questions here. I suspect that there may be terminal police rule violations along with a boatload of humiliation.
Keeping the cop's names secret will never happen. Of course the claimant and I use that in monetary terms will enjoy complete anonymity just like that phony Duke La Cross rape victim.
This case begs for a complete investigation. They will be going over communications logs involving these officers and their assignment. Surveillance tape will be found and any lies may well be exposed.
This case sounds a lot like that of a high-ranking public employee who managed to do high level government business over his office telephone while receiving oral sex. That fellow lied about the incident under oath and was exposed. He never lost a day’s pay and receives a handsome pension today. That of course was President Bill Clinton. I don’t think any lowly Chicago cops will fare as well as Buba did.
Remember how the Clinton apoligists said it was all just sex? So mush for Equal Protection under law.
If there is Probable Cause of a serious crime here it deserves prosecution and the accused deserve a fair day in court.
