What an Outrage! - June 23, 2009, 10:46 PM

I seriously cannot believe this shit!

CHICAGO — An off-duty Chicago police officer convicted of pummeling a female bartender half his size was sentenced Tuesday to two years probation and anger management classes for the videotaped attack that appeared worldwide on the Internet and cable news channels.

Cook County Circuit Judge John Fleming also gave Anthony Abbate, 40, a home curfew of 8 p.m. to 6 a.m. and ordered him to perform 130 hours of community service.

"No one in recent memory ... has done more to tarnish the reputation of the Chicago Police Department than Anthony Abbate," Cook County Assistant State's Attorney LuAnn Snow said Tuesday.

Prosecutors had asked for prison for Abbate -- he could have been sentenced to up to five years behind bars -- but the judge said he didn't see aggravating factors to justify a prison term. The judge said Abbate had a clean record before the incident, did not seriously injure the bartender, and underwent alcohol rehab "and has not had a relapse."

"If I believed sentencing Anthony Abbate to prison would stop people from getting drunk and hitting people, I'd give him the maximum sentence," Fleming said.

Earlier this month, the judge rejected Abbate's claim he acted in self-defense and convicted him of aggravated battery. A tavern security video shows a drunken, 250-pound Abbate punching and kicking the 125-pound Karolina Obrycka as she tended bar in February 2007. The altercation happened after she refused to serve him more drinks.

The video captured a lot of attention as another example of misconduct by Chicago police. Then-Superintendent Phil Cline suddenly announced his retirement shortly after the video surfaced and former FBI official Jody Weis was appointed to the spot with an order to clean up the department's image.

Abbate acknowledged during the trial that he was drunk during the incident. But he said Obrycka pushed him first as she tried to remove him from behind the bar. Obrycka said during the hearing that she continues to suffer psychological wounds, often has nightmares and has trouble trusting people, including her husband.

If you haven't seen the video, see below (warning: It is graphic):

If you ask me, the cocksucker should have been locked up for the rest of his no-good, natural life.

Yeah, cops get off light, that's just the way it is. The fact is we all punish our buddies lightly.

What about your family? I'm sure you've got at least one woman in the bunch who ventures out onto the streets of America alone. Bad things happen for no other reason than just because. I'd hate to think what would happen if there wasn't some system of checks and balances (Police and Judicial system) in place.

Granted the system isn't perfect and is more broken in some places than others, but it does more good than bad.

This I agree with. Its just not this situation. A LOT of SCUM get off easy ALL THE TIME! Its not like this guy just got off easy JUST cause he is the PoPo. Just sit in court one day and check it out for yourself. Why do you think a lot of Police are disgusted with the Judicial system. I see people who get locked up for robbery (or burglary) and the judge puts them in a halfway house in the same area they robbed! The Judge gives them conditions of release (such as stay away orders). They violate them in a week and get locked up. In D.C., if a person violates a stay awa order issued by a Judge, you can lock them up on the spot. The Judge goes, "I told you you cant do that. Back to the half way house" and re releases them.The guy goes right back to doing what he did in the same area. I know theres always if, and, or buts. But in this specific case, thats what they usually do to people who have no record - Community Service and anger management.

James this is exactly what I was thinking and I couldnt help, but feel sickened. I've been trying to find excuses. Deduce some reasoning, but I just cant help, but think this is indicative of the entire justice system. I dont think he got off easy just because he was law enforcement. Im afraid that this is just the way it is in America's courts today. Unfortunately, I think any piece of shit who does something like this stands a good chance of receiving a similarly light sentence.

A while back, my brother's fiancee's sister was persistently being stalked and harrassed by some asshole. Despite all her efforts, nothing was done to curb his behavior. In fact, it only escalated. Eventually he assaulted her one night while she was walking into her apt. Slashed her with a knife and broke three of her ribs. He never spent a day in Jail.
