CHICAGO TRIBUNE: Lawsuit Alleges Code of Silence Emboldened Chicago Cop Involved in Beating to Feel ‘Untouchable’

A Chicago police sergeant who allegedly beat two men outside a popular nightclub in the Andersonville neighborhood last year was emboldened by a code of silence within the Police Department that allowed him to remain on the force despite a troubled history, a lawsuit filed by Cavanagh Sorich Law Group alleges.

The suit, amended this week in Cook County Circuit Court, claimed that then-Sgt. Eric Elkins thought he was “above the law” on the night he attacked John Sherwood and Thomas Stacha after an altercation at the @mosphere club in the 5300 block of North Clark Street.
