By unanimous 8-0 vote, the Chicago Police Board found that officer Raoul Mosqueda did not violate department policies in the 2011 fatal shooting of 27-year-old Darius Pinex, according to the Chicago Tribune.

The city’s former police watchdog agency — the Independent Police Review Authority — had previously recommended that Mosqueda be fired for lying about the shooting

Mosqueda has been suspended without pay since last August butut now that he’s been cleared, he’ll return to duty and receive back pay.

Civilian review boards are a shame and are useless when it comes to investigating anything about police conduct or operations, they have never been in the positions officers have been in and when a former or retired police officer is on one they were a officer worker and never worked a beat long.
