Chicago Police Officer Richard Bolling was charged in a hit and run that killed a 13-year-old Trenton Booker who was riding his bicycle. In such cases, standard procedures calls for a breathalyzer as soon as possible. However, Bolling’s colleagues gave him four hours and, when they administered the test, he registered 0.079 — miraculously just under the 0.08 limit.
Bolling is the second officer involved in such a hit and run.
This is not the first such allegation of delayed testing or light treatment of officers by colleagues. There was also this disturbing case as well as case where an accused officer was assigned to his own investigation. Then there is this case of an officer being undercharged.
