    Or there could be failure to determine guilt because of institutional bias. The Chicago Tribune recently ran a piece on the elite crime unit which, though it is a small fraction of the total police force, had about 50% of the brutality complaints, with only one 15 day suspension and 2 reprimands from some 400+ complaints.

    Perhaps the auditors and investigators do not want to hinder the effectiveness of our police by being overly critical? Maybe they want to encourage everyone to be Keifer Sutherland or Clint Eastwood? Or perhaps I am being too cynical?
