Three Chicago area police officers have reportedly confessed to robbing drug dealers and manufacturing cocaine after being arrested by federal authorities yesterday. One of the officers apparently explained why—telling investigators he did "it all for the thrill of it." John Cichy, Matthew Hudak and Terrance O’Brien, all of Schaumburg, Illinois, face charges ranging from manufacturing or delivering between 100 and 400 grams of cocaine, to armed violence and official misconduct. In court this morning, prosecutor Audriana Anderson quoted Hudak saying "Everything you have on tape, I did. You got me on that." Authorities were led to the three suspects after they executed a search warrant on a locker in nearby Carol Stream, which yielded 275 grams of cocaine. The person in control of that locker told authorities that the three cops were using him to buy and sell drugs with the money and drugs they stole while executing warrants. A girlfriend of one of the officers, Nicole Brehm, is also accused of running a stash house; authorities recovered six pounds of marijuana and some cocaine from her apartment.

Last February, my oldest friend died of a heroin overdose at the age of 49. He beat me to recovery, and he beat me to death. He also gave a final, drug-alogue interview on my radio show 20 hours before he died.
