Lt’s Promotion Exam: UPDATE 10 June 07
There is apparently a rumor circulating that our lawsuit was dismissed in court last Monday 04 June 07. THIS IS NOT TRUE. In fact, last week our attorneys amended our original complaint. Our case is still pending in the Cook County Circuit Court – Chancery Division before the Honorable Judge Bernetta D. Bush.

We are making Affidavits available to anyone that is eligible to participate in the re-test. If you have not already received this Affidavit and are interested in obtaining one it is available via email as an attachment or by contacting the Chicago Police Sergeants’ Association at 773-376-7272.

Once again, as soon as a hearing date is set we will post it. If there are any questions, please contact the C.P.S.A. via email or directly M-F from 0830 to 1600hrs.

Open Season on the Police Continues:
Attorney calls beating 'hate crime disguised as police work'
June 14, 2007 - A man is suing two Chicago Police officers and the city saying the officers beat him because he is gay.

Lawyers for Alexander Ruppert say pictures show the injuries he suffered in the beating. It happened in March 2006 near the Uptown Lounge at Broadway and Lawrence. Ruppert's lawyers say officers were on duty and responding to a call at the bar. They reportedly asked Ruppert to step outside then took him a block away and beat him.
Ruppert says during the attack officers used anti-gay slurs and only stopped when he told them he is HIV positive.

"This was a hate crime disguised as police work. Hate crime is particularly heinous, because it's not just a crime against a person, but against an entire community," said Jon Erickson, attorney.

Ruppert was charged with aggravated battery against a police officer. Police say the charges were reduced to a misdemeanor.

The city law department says it has not yet seen the lawsuit.

82 police recruits took their oaths Thursday morning during a graduation ceremony at Navy Pier.
Mayor Daley joined Chicago Police Superintendent Phil Cline as they welcomed the new officers. Mayor Daley told the recruits that they have a great responsibility but to use common sense when they're out on the streets. Cline reminded them to respect their badge.

The new officers will be assigned to various districts throughout the City of Chicago.
