Perjurous Officer keeps pension

I don't really know what to say about this, except, the people of Illinois are paying for it in more ways than one!

"A former Chicago police official convicted of lying about the torture of suspects gets to keep his $3,000-a-month pension.
The police pension board said Thursday that the motion to end benefits for 63-year-old Jon Burge failed by a 4-4 vote. It required five votes to pass."

The problem here is that we don't punish these people nearly enough.   He was convicted of lying in a civil trial about witnessing and participating in the torture of suspects, he faces 4.5 years in prison.  Have no illusions, as a former LEO he's still better than the rest of you.  If it was you, you'd be in prison right now:

"Burge is set to report to prison March 16."
