Chicago cops, officer Timothy McDermott and officer Jerome Finnigan were fired for misconduct, after posing with rifles while a black man in their custody was forced to wear deer antlers on his head.
Police Supt. Garry McCarthy condemned the photo in a statement sent to Chicagoist Wednesday morning:
“This picture is disgusting, and the despicable actions of these two former officers have no place in our police department or in our society. As the Superintendent of this department, and as a resident of our city, I will not tolerate this kind of behavior, and that is why neither of these officers works for CPD today.

Our residents deserve better than this, as do the thousands of good men and women in this department.” Continue reading →
