JUSTICE: Despite his federal conviction, former Chicago Police Cmdr. Jon Burge will be able to keep his pension, according to a vote by a police pension board Thursday. “Burge, 63, was sentenced last week to 4 1/2 years in prison following a conviction last summer on perjury and obstruction of justice related to the way he gave answers in a lawsuit that claimed he and underlings tortured murder suspects who were in police custody. He’s scheduled to report to prison in March.”
