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 admitted once withholding insulin from a diabetic man until he told them where his cash was hidden. They said they used to stop Hispanics driving nice cars, take the keys and illegally search the motorists’ homes.

WHAT’S BEING DONE: The four made a deal to cooperate in an ongoing investigation of their “elite” team, which was disbanded two years ago amid allegations that the members were involved in home invasions, kidnappings and murders for hire.
