The [Monday] Papers

"A Chicago police sergeant who shot an apparently unarmed man last month - his second fatal shooting in three years - might have been fired years ago, but that disciplinary case fell through the cracks for reasons the Police Department cannot explain, the Tribune has learned.

"Chief police spokesman Anthony Guglielmi said Superintendent Eddie Johnson has ordered that an audit be done to try to figure out why the internal investigation of Sgt. John Poulos was never completed.

"Multiple sources told the Tribune that the allegation against Poulos was serious enough for the Police Department to consider moving to fire him well before the two fatal shootings, but it was a mystery why he was never disciplined at all.

"In an e-mailed statement last week, Guglielmi said the department's Bureau of Internal Affairs opened an investigation in 2004 into Poulos' ownership 'of an establishment that sold alcohol.' Officers are barred from holding an ownership interest in such businesses.

"Records indicate that Poulos' family has owned Gamekeepers, a popular sports bar in the Old Town neighborhood."

Click through to the Trib for more on the two shootings, which previously appeared on the Beachwood (via the Sun-Times) here.

Early Admission
"Chicago, like many cities, has been trying to expand preschool to improve life outcomes for disadvantaged children," Becky Vevea reports for WBEZ.

"But a report out Monday from the University of Chicago and the University of South Carolina suggests starting almost at birth would provide a much higher payoff.

"University of Chicago economist and Nobel Laureate James Heckman has spent years studying the benefits of birth-to-five programs. But his latest paper, written with researchers at the University of Southern California, found significantly stronger lifetime benefits than other similar studies."

Why Newsrooms, I Mean College Faculty, Are So White
"[F]aculty will bend rules, knock down walls, and build bridges to hire those they really want (often white colleagues), but when it comes to hiring faculty of color, they have to 'play by the rules' and get angry when any exceptions are made. Let me tell you a secret - exceptions are made for white people constantly in the academy; exceptions are the rule in academe."
