According to the Sun Times, Chicago police Officer Richard A. Rizzo has been arrested four times by fellow members of his department over the past 7 years. (Note – how bad must this guy be that his fellow officers cross the Thin Blue Line and actually arrest him?) Not only did his fellow officers arrest him, he was charged by prosecutors each time. The charges included domestic battery, child endangerment, and aggravated assault with a gun.
Rizzo was charged with domestic battery in a situation wherein his live-in girlfriend accused him of pulling her out of his car, dragging her in to their apartment and slamming her against the floor of their bedroom.
However, each time, prosecutors ended up dropping the charges against the 15-year police veteran. Beware of this type of scum “protecting” your streets. Rizzo himself is not currently patrolling the streets. He is restricted to desk duties, and continues to make his $80,000 some salary a year. More here.
