Former Mayor Daley’s police detail under scrutiny in Koschman death


Of course, the Sun Times publishes this on a national holiday when probably over 75% of readers are staying home and won't buy a newsstand copy. Why wasn't this published on a Sunday?:
  • For the 22 years he was mayor, Richard M. Daley relied upon a select group of police officers to ensure his safety and that of his family. 
    The security detail was more than a palace guard. Its members routinely traveled with Daley and his family. They drove his kids to school. They ran errands for the family.

    Now, members of the police detail that served Daley are being questioned by Dan K. Webb, the special prosecutor appointed by a judge last year to reinvestigate the 2004 death of David Koschman.
  • Webb continues to look into why police and prosecutors from the Cook County state’s attorney’s office didn’t charge Vanecko.

    Webb’s team has questioned retired police Cmdr. Sam Roti, who became the detail’s commander in 2004, about two months after Koschman’s death.

    Roti replaced James Keating, a retired police officer who is now head of security for the Chicago Transit Authority.

    Keating and Roti both grew up in Bridgeport, the former mayor’s old neighborhood. Each joined the detail on April 25, 1989 — the day after Daley was first sworn in as mayor.

One suicide so far, lots of early retirements and now indictments.

Fuck it, I will stay in patrol. Better than years in a cell for some political suckass.
