This story should be of concern

An Illinois police union on Wednesday ousted from its membership an officer facing criminal charges for exposing a squad car video that showed his fellow officers slapping and cursing a man dying of a drug overdose.

Officers slapped Eric Lurry, restricted his airway and shoved a baton in his mouth hours before his death. Esqueda faces up to 20 years in prison after department officials opened a criminal investigation into his actions and prosecutors charged him with four counts of official misconduct.

Prosecutors cleared the officers involved of any criminal wrongdoing after a multiagency police task force investigated Lurry's death. Lurry's widow, Nicole Lurry, has since filed a wrongful death suit against the city and the officers involved in the confrontation with her husband.
