Daily Outrage: Former Chicago police officers plead guilty in cases of abusing power

WHO: Four former members of now-disbanded Chicago police unit.

WHAT: The ex-cops pleaded guilty to felonies in Cook County court Friday and were all sentenced to six months in jail.

They said they used to stop Hispanics driving nice cars, take the keys and illegally search the motorists’ homes.
