Daley backs Weis decision not to release cop complaint list

Clout St:

Mayor Richard Daley today said he supported Police Supt. Jody Weis' refusal to publicly release the list of officers who have been the subject of repeated complaints, a decision that defies two federal judges.

Daley said many complaints against officers are "unfounded and meritless." Those officers do not deserve to have their names made public, the mayor said.

“They have been thoroughly reviewed,” Daley said. “Those people should not come under scrutiny of any lawyer … These are public servants. I believe [Weis] is doing the right thing.”

The mayor shrugged off Weis’ defiance of the federal judges, saying, “Like anything else … you have a right to appeal it.”
