FOP Names New President

Kindness can't be far behind.

Chicago's Fraternal Order of Police has elected a new president to succeed Mark Donahue.

With 54 percent of the vote, officers and retirees elected 33-year-old Mike Shields to the post. 

He's currently a trustee of the police officers' pension fund and ran on a platform of protecting the retirement plan.

The Chicago Sun-Times reminds:

    Shields first made a name for himself with rank-and-file members in 2009 when -- as a pension fund trustee -- he questioned an earlier decision by the police pension board to commit $15 million to DV Urban Realty, a real-estate firm involving Robert Vanecko, a nephew of Mayor Daley, and Allison Davis, a mayoral supporter whose law firm once employed Barack Obama

Donahue is ending his third term as FOP president and was not eligible to run again.
