Well, like the old saying goes, just because you're paranoid doesn't mean they're not out to get you. From the above-linked NY Times article: "in 2011, [Chicago PD officer Jerome Finnigan] admitted to robbing criminal suspects while serving in an elite police unit and ordering a hit on a fellow police officer he thought intended to turn him in. He was sentenced to 12 years in prison. My bosses knew what I was doing out there, and it went on and on, he said in court when he pleaded guilty. And this wasnt the exception to the rule. This was the rule." It isn't just a few bad apples, and it isn't just Chicago. So yeah, much disgust.
