The [Tuesday] Papers

"Very few police misconduct complaints see the light of day. Only about 7 percent are sustained, and only 2 percent result in officer discipline, according to the City of Chicago's own data. What most troubles people looking to enhance police accountability, including Mayor Rahm Emanuel's handpicked task force, is that the majority of the complaints never get investigated," Eleanore Catalico writes for the Chicago Reporter.

"Of the 17,700 civilian complaints filed from 2011 to 2014, investigators didn't open cases on 58 percent of them. Why? They were marked 'no affidavit.' Due to a state law and police union contract rules, civilians must sign sworn affidavits to accompany their official complaints."
