"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."
