    How does Chicago want to deal with a jury's finding that the Chicago Police Department employed a "Code of Silence" to protect a criminal cop?

    Pay off the victim, and pretend it doesn't exist.

    Here are a couple of reports From YouTube. Each has video of the beatdown.



    The first clip has news coverage. The second clip has sound during the attack.

    It was a HUGE story in town when it happened, thanks in part to the video.

    I don't think you have to say "in part" to the video. Without the video, I very seriously doubt this even gets to court.

    The bartender is small but tough. He hammered her a few times, and she bounced right up.

    I was in town shortly after that happened, and in addition to being horrified by the video, I, too, thought about how tough that woman was. Glad she saw this through. Too bad the city doesn't have half the courage she has.

    Wait, I thought Democrats were always looking out for the little people? This is really confusing.
