Chicago Issues $100 Million in Bonds to Settle Police Brutality Cases


The city is attempting to issue the $900 million in bonds to lower some of its borrowing costs and to double its short-term credit line to $1 billion. But fully $100 million of that debt burden is going to pay off lawsuits, much of it to plaintiffs who won judgments against the city in police brutality cases.

As the Chicago Tribune reported, "the city would take on between $90 million and $100 million in debt to pay off legal settlements made last year. The bulk of those settlements were made in connection with police misconduct cases."

Looks like if you pay enough you can harm, plunder, beat up and even murder anyone in your cross hairs if you have a gun, badge and 007 license.
