Chicago Police & Accountability

In his weekly crime column for Reason magazine, reporter Radley Balko writes about the notoriously corrupt Chicago Police Department’s efforts to block people from using the only methods available to them to hold police accountable – namely, recording encounters and filing lawsuits for misconduct. Running down all the scary cases of bad CPD behavior, Balko argues there should be a clear policy that prohibits police from interfering with audio or video recordings, which is a great idea that we wholeheartedly agree with but seems like a pipe dream at this point.
