18 year vet? LOL
I am sure that this is the first time that this has happened. No wait, he said that he does this all the time.
I am even more surprised that the CPD and IA actually did something about this.

No wait, "Rodriguez"? sounds brown to me.

YAY they finally caught that one bad cop!!

I wonder how many people will come forward now that this has been made public. Is it possible that they could be charged for bribing the cop?
I'd be willing to wager that this is standard routine for him.

FTFA: The officer then gave the motorist his cell phone number and told him to call over the weekend, according to court documents. Instead, the motorist called Chicago Police and the Internal Affairs Division began an investigation.

The only reason Internal Affairs decided to press ahead with this case was because Rodriguez didn't have the $10K they wanted to make the whole thing go away.

What I don't get is what the guy could have been possibly doing to be worth paying 5000$ to get out of. All I can think of is a DUI, what other traffic offenses could possibly cost you that much if you just accept and pay the ticket?

A buddy of mine had a cellmate that got pulled over with a corpse he had recently dug up; corpse was buckled up in the passenger seat.

I'd think that would cost more than $5000 to get out of. Unless, i guess, if you had the $5000 right there in small, unmarked, nonsequential bills.

Wait... so every single person in Illinois or city government employ in Chicago is corrupt, and this is the guy they nail?

Sure, that's good, but you're just going 'Hey, look at this evil bastard who picked a leaf' while you're chainsawing the grove.

I guess he didn't pay his hush money.

You'd think a cop would make themselves less easy to catch.

That was the bribe required by the Denton county DA when my attorney faced the same charges he couldn't get me off of.

Yeah, fark Tim Powers.

Wanna know how I know this article is completely made up nonsense?

FTFA: "While the case is pending, he has been stripped of his police powers without pay, a police spokeswoman said."

Even the Republicans would be afraid to tell a lie this big & bold.

And yet somebody who has voted straight D's their entire life just did. In the most corrupt city in the country that hasn't voted republican since Lincoln. As a side note I hear Lincoln is such a fan of the current administration that he voted for Obama in IL in 2008 and plans to vote for him again this year. Multiple times even.

Internal Affairs provided the motorist with $5,000, which he gave Rodriguez in front of undercover detectives, court documents said. The officer then said he would not remember the ticket.

If Internal Affairs provided me with $5000. That money would go right in my bank account.
And be exchanged for bitcoins/crack

Yep probably DUI. Or maybe driving while suspended.

DNRTFA, but my immediate reaction was that prices have gone up since I left northern IL.

/Anybody else remember the CPD and "50-dollar pencils"?

Yeah one has to figure if a cop will let you off for a $5000 bribe then internal affairs will probably let you off for wearing a wire. Not hard to figure out which offer to take.
 
2012-09-20 11:23:39 PM
Goddammitsomuch, I swear I'm leaving law enforcement. Why the hell do I continue to put my ass on the line only to have assholes like this represent my profession in the public eye?!?
