OK, the mayor set up a blue-ribbon panel to figure out what to do about the police department and the mess it has created. It had fifteen members (or did, until the two co-chairs resigned). Now, just before the first meeting, three more members have also resigned. The committee hasn’t even had a meeting yet, and 33% of its members have quit?
But not to worry – the mayor says it will all be fine.
Now the State Attorney has dropped 38 DUI cases because the officers involved put false information in the reports.
There are numerous officers who the State Attorney will no longer put on the stand because of issues with their truthfulness.
