Star Restored to Slain Chicago Officer

November 09, 2011  | 

Chicago police superintendent Garry McCarthy has restored the star to an officer who was allegedly slain by her grandson so she can be buried with a badge, reports the Chicago Tribune.

Officer Hester Scott was stripped of her powers in 2007 after her grandson, who is now charged with her murder, accused her of abuse. Child welfare authorities found no basis for the abuse accusation. But the department's Independent Police Review Authority launched its own investigation. Scott was placed on desk duty until its completion, which is still pending.

Good. Chicago PD finally did the right thing.

Four years and they still had not completed the investigation? Terrible.

A totally sad situation. I'm glad she finally can have some dignity.

Four years and they still couldn't get it done. Just think it only cost the life of a police officer.

I'm glad this poor outstanding officer will be buried with her star that CPD should have given back a long time ago. I cannot believe it took the so called internal affairs department 4 years and they still had not completed their case. RIP Officer Scott!!!

Wow, it took them 4 years to decide? Amazing!
