In November 2007, off-duty Chicago police officer John Ardelean, was out drinking at River North’s Martini Ranch. Security videotape shows the police officer drinking three beers and four shots in just over two hours. After leaving the bar, Ardelean slammed his vehicle into another killing that vehicle’s two occupants, Miguel Flores and Erick Lagunas. The police officers at the scene did not do a field sobriety test or force Ardelean to blow.
Chicago Police officers are comfortable about abusing their power. If police officers are held to account for misusing their power, perhaps an officer will think harder about illegally arresting someone and laughing about it.
