Commander Evans: #1 in Chicago for Excessive Force

Why it is so hard for Superintendent McCarthy to take away Commander Glenn Evans police powers after the Independent Police Review Authority (IPRA) recommended that he be stripped of his duties as a police official? Commander Evans was accused of shoving a gun down the throat of Rickey Williams and threatening to kill him and the DNA evidence was found to back this story up. Supt. McCarthy and Mayor Rahm Emanuel declined to comment at this time. Commander Evans made the number one on the list for police with excessive force complaints.

Some people have said that Commander Evans did a great job reducing violence but what about all of the people he abused that we do not know about? Commander Evans also had a run in with Alderman Jason Ervin. Obviously, this commander does not have any respect for people in the African American community since all of his complaints occurred in the African American community. What's the difference between a gang banger trying to do well in the community in the day time but at night the same gang banger terrorizes the community? This is same type of behavior that this Gang Banging Police Commander Evans is displaying without any real consequences for his actions. Supt. McCarthy would love to improve relationships with the community at large but he continues to go against the recommendations of the IPRA. Maybe nobody cares about this serious matter with Commander Evans but all of the victims and their families really care about what happens to their loved ones.

This is definitely a step in the wrong direction for the Chicago Police Department. There should never be a time when a police official should remain on his post without any real consequences with over 40 excessive force complaints. State's Attorney Anita Alvarez should file charges against this rogue gang banging commander as soon as possible. There is no excuse for this type of behavior and we expect the police to protect and serve. This sends a clear message that it's okay to use excessive force in the African American community because the African American community is already plagued by high levels of violence.

Commander Evans represents the worst that the Chicago Police Department has to offer and if this matter is not taken care immediately then others from the Chicago Police Department will follow in his footsteps. Violence is a learned behavior passed down from one generation to another. Police brutality falls under the same category as a learned behavior.
