Federal Jury Finds City of Chicago Responsible for "Code of Silence" in Chicago Police Department

Police profess to car about upholding the law. If they really cared so much, they would be especially outraged when a fellow police person breaks the law.

On February 17, 2007, an intoxicated off-duty Chicago police officer, Anthony "Tony" Abbate walked behind the bar of Jesse's Shortstop Inn and pummeled, punched and stomped 125-pound bartender Karolina Obrycka. Her "crime" was to refuse serving any more liquor to the burly Abbate because he was too drunk.

That unprovoked beating by Abbate led to a precedent-setting finding this November by a federal court jury in Chicago that the city, the Chicago Police Department (CPD) and Tony Abbate had engaged in a "code of silence" to try and minimize the incident, protect Abbate and prevent justice from being served to Obrycka.
