A published report says most Chicago police officers accused of misconduct aren't found to be at fault and when they are face minor infractions with little punishment.
Nearly 75 percent of officers found to have committed some type of misconduct aren't docked any time off or receive a few days suspension, according to a report by the Chicago Tribune. The newspaper analyzed police records in its report.
The newspaper says nearly 60 percent of all complaints are thrown out without being fully investigated because victims don't sign required affidavits and an officer's complaint history isn't considered as part of the investigation.
Critics say the system makes it difficult for people to file complaints.
But Chicago police officials say there are many complicated factors at play and objects to the Tribune's analysis.
