The Granite City Police are no exception. I wonder if there is a law they are required to follow when investigating complaints of abuse against officers? Or if a flat out "There's not going to be an investigation" from the chief of police suffices. The Granite City Police have failed to follow proper procedure and law in the investigation of Mike Gagich. There needs to be an investigation into this department. Don't try video taping the Granite City Police while in the course of their duties either. You get threatened with FELONY EAVESDROPPING. That's right, 15 years for the criminal act of videotaping with audio the actions of the police. A crime so severe that the punishment must be excessive to teach them a lesson. I had fought the city and police to obtain public records and they fought me tooth and nail till their hand was forced by the state after contacting the States Attorney Generals office. The gull of the police department alone when out of their mouth came "we're the police department, nothing we do is a matter of public record" Then they tried saying only media can have public records such as arrest logs or anything. They either thought I was stupid and would accept their answer and walk away, or they were really that incompetant to be able to handle their job.

Jeremy, I think we both know that the G.C. police department is one of the most contemptible entities in the immediate area. Your constitutional rights, In this Town, or State for that matter, DO NOT EXIST. You wanna fight to prove your right???? Pay a few billion to scum sucking attorneys to help you. EVERY G.C. PD officer who served under Dave Ruebhausen should be terminated (or jailed). There is such a long standing contempt for the law, by the people who's duty it is to enforce it, in this town it may be unrepairable (that goes doubly so after the state's massive tax hike that has people leaving in droves)
