Mayor Rahm Emanuel recently pushed the idea of creating “right to thrive zones” to help economically depressed neighborhoods. But broader regulatory reform is needed across all of Chicago to foster the spirit of entrepreneurship that drives great cities.

Craig Futterman on Fighting the ‘Code of Silence’

Fighting the ‘Code of Silence’
Jack Silverstein
Chicago Daily Law Bulletin
March 9, 2015

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.

“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.
