It's all PR rolando. Dont't get all excited and get your panties all up on a wad. They refuse to do anything about the criminals in their own mist. They get re-assigned or promoted instead. Most can't or won't do anything to rid these deparments of their own alocholics and drug addicts. What makes you think they can make any positive or lasting impact in these communities? Poor communities just make an easier target so someone gets to flap their wings and get a promotion. Yaaawwwwwwwnnnnnnnn! Move on.

excerpt from Fox News Illinois: "A high-ranking Illinois police officer was arrested and charged with stealing prescription drugs from his department’s unwanted-medication program, the Beacon-News reports.

Deputy Chief Dave Delaney of the Yorkville Police Department was charged with felonies possession of a controlled substance and theft of government property, according to Kendall County State’s Attorney Eric Weis.

The charges are the least severe class of felony, punishable by one to three years in prison and a fine up to $25,000, or probation.

According to the Beacon-News, Weis said Delaney is accused of taking prescription drugs from the program for his personal use. Delaney was arrested Friday by Illinois State Police."

Brokentoe - I don't understand your post. You say police refuse to punish offenders who are police officers and then post a clipping from a story where a police officer was arrested and charged with a felony. Isn't that an example of the police actually doing something about the "criminals in their own midst"?

I'm with Rolando. Go Task Force!

This is more of "rounding up the usual suspects".
