It's about time something is done about this.... I personally know of another officer that has done this, but now works in Arcola.... These are the people we choose to serve and protect?

Cha our world is getting worst and worst than ever because everyone believe that the cops will protect us but if the cop itself does these kind of activities then we can lose all our hope. Cops should be the protector of us and not the destroyer. I really feel ashamed of the cop department.

Please don't lump all law enforcement officers into this category. No person should ever think of committing such haneous crimes including police officers. But not all police officers are bad. Most are very trustworthy and hard working individuals who sacrifice their love to protect and serve. However they are human and humans are imperfect. Justice will be served in this case and any office of the law who breaks law will pay.

There is no excuse this is allowed to CPD. Its a "code of silence" that protects these rouge officers involved in serious crimes in our community. Why is this problem in CPD getting worse, not better? Should Cheif Baker resign? Or be replaced? Or a complete change in the command staff? Who will take responsibility for this corrupt climate currently in the CPD? Should more police officers be exposed for crimes? How many more are they?

Why should the chief resign for something an OFF-DUTY patrol officer allegedly did?

Because this is a ongoing problem with not just Officer Iwaniw. But the Admin...Last year started with Heise having sex with a CHS student. He resigns. No charges. No investigation. No media coverage. Why?....Heise, this. Cheif Baker should be replaced or resign. Obviously its his performance record that truly matters. And the cost to the tax payers...for the cost of these cases...and future cases. The "code of silence" allowed this police and judicial corruption of the system and offical many involved in it. Why no charges on others involved in more serious crimes within the CPD? Who is next? What's really going on amongst our public servants? Who serves who? Who's best interest is being protected and served in our community? Yours or theirs? You decide. Power to the people. We the people. All the people. Justice for all.

I'd let one of those rock hard officers search me! They could use two, three, four, or even five fingers to make sure the public is safe. If I swallowed all the evidence, how would anyone know?

Why did the State not charge Former CPD Officer Iwaniw with the child pornography class 1 felony at the same time he was charged with the other two class 1 felonies? From what i have discovered all this same information was available at the same time.I assume the video recorded evidence,with audio, was in the possesion of the state at the time the charges against him were considered..or from my experience with LEO's,no charges would of been filed on a LEO unless there is VIDEO RECORDED EVIDENCE,WITH AUDIO that cant be denied by the those responsible for protecting us citizens from these crimes and corruption within CPD or CCSD or ECITF or ISP or from the Illinois politicians. Simple verbal tesitimony from the complaining witness,unless your connected to the GOB network..i seriously dought would of been enough to bring charges against a LEO(law enforcement officer). Am i wrong? Or is the "code of silence" wrong within LEO unoffical training procedures? This code of silence exsist within all forms of the justice system. FACT.Can we stop it?

What I think about this case I think this girlis fake I think she is making all this up because David wanted to stop the relationship that's why she told and accused him of that the police should go and investigate her friends.
I DISAGREE. I think he thought he might get caught. Otherwise it would still be continuing to this day and he would still be a corrupt LEO.She or someone got ahold of the video recorded audio evidence..or made their own. Then filed a complaint.

Who are her friends? Got names? Share them here. What are they doing thats illegal or wrong in your opinion? Do you have evidence of it to support your claim? recorded evidence with audio?

No stupied that charge was after u don't is that she is just trying to get back at him go to face book and see her status she is making all this up
If she was making this charges would of been filed agaist former CPD Officer David Iwaniw. She had to have STRONG evidence of a a video recording or audio recording,or both. Trust me,the state dose NOT bring charges against LEO's unless they have to,they protect them. This is a clear case of VIDEO RECORDED(with audio)EVIDENCE. Her verbal complaint or others would of gone nowhere(unless GOB connected). The States Atty. would have never heard or seen this case unless thats true. The ISP would not of done an investigation. They protect their own brothers in crime. The CODE OF SILENCE is a powerful thing designed to protect them,not you the citizen. This needs to end! How? It prevents the good cops from telling on the bad cops. It erodes the public trust in LEO's(law enforcement officers). They need that public trust to be able to do their job effectively. Whithout that, the whole justice system breaks down as we all have seen in Coles County. Its a discrace. Just read the newspaper lately. This community is filled with crime. WHY?

Cops are disgusting power hungry corrupt pieces of trash. This is just the tip of the iceburg. All of you who think theyre all angels are either blind or ignorant. I had a family member who was in law enforcement for years and the stories i heard about beatings, lying, and corruption would make you all sick. In a state where our governors cant even stay out of jail, the idea that these guys are heroes is laughable at best.

The fact is, if you want to murder someone and get away with it.....just get a badge.
