WGN Investigates: An officer’s lie and the boss who backed her up

Capture

Understanding the fear Debra Green says she lives, one must go back in time to March 19, 2010 and the funeral for her sister. The south sider says it was a horrific day burying her best friend. Then, she says, it got much worse.

As the procession left the funeral home, it headed west on 79th Street towards Vincennes. That’s when a Chicago police officer –driving her own car and late for work – cut in.

Green says she pointed to her own car’s funeral sticker, motioning that it’s not proper to disrupt a funeral procession. But she says, the woman, who turned out to be officer Sylshina London, cut in and kept following the procession.

But officer London tells a very different tale.
