Fighting the ‘Code of Silence’
Chicago Daily Law Bulletin
For a man who has made a career out of suing police, Craig B. Futterman’s views on law enforcement aren’t as straight forward as one might expect.
For Futterman, his work is about ensuring appropriate use of police powers — including the power to “shoot and kill.”
“I think the power to use deadly force is (necessary),” he said. “Yes. I do.”
The problem with that power, he said, is twofold — deadly force is overused, and police are rarely honest about its use.
