It seems as if everyone in the town of metropolis or associated with the town knows about the corruption with in the police department. Question, Why isn't the govornment inverstigating? It seems to me that the DEA or FBI needds to be informed. Something must be done because innocent people and families are effected by this.

Can you cite some examples of police corruption in Metropolis? Please don't misunderstand, for I am not challenging you. I've just been away for some time and am a little out of the loop. Thanks.

I know this is old post but, The Police here are a joke.They have givin false information about the law before (as I was told there is NO Ill. stalking law,which is nation wide...lol)But seems to me that people with a record around here gets more "warnings" and has more "rights" than someone that has never been arrested before. I am in my forties and have NEVER been arrested until last year (twice now) because I reported NUMORUS times about some incidents and nothing was done about it until it got me so frustrated that I lost my temper and was charged with "disorederly conduct" both times which I blame ENTIRERLY on the Metropolis Police Dept. NOT doing their job to the extent of the DISPATCHER not even reporting the calls or not even ANSWERING the phone when my # pops up!! This surely deserves an investigation by some "outside" office.I was even denied my right to file a report because they said it was a "civil matter" and I would have to take it to small claimes court. I said ok but, I still need a report and I got yelled in my face and I told the officer to forget it and walked out!! If you know anything thing about small claimes court the first thing judge ask you,"did you feel threatened"? You answer "yes". "Did you call the police"? "yes". The Judge responds "can I see the report"? ohhhh, well lets see, I dont have one! If you respond to the judge "no sir, I didn't call the police" his response is "Well sir, if you didn't feel threatened enough to call the polce then it mustnot have upset you that much" I called on a teenager driving with no licenses and went through a yard and almost hit a car. They wasn't going to show cause I was the one who called (hmmmm).I told the lady whos car almost got hit, showed her where he came through the yard and the muddy tire marks in th driveway only inches from the car parked there so she called and you hear over the scanner "we've had a diffrent caller on this call,you may want to check it out!When the Metro officer arrived finally, the kid was long gone "lol" there was no report to be made and I I I got checked for warrents "LMAO" only in Metropolis Ill. I called the polcie on some teenage kids harrassing my son and his GF they put it out as dumb people making stupid call again. Didn't seem so stupid to me and probably wouldn't be to them if it was THEIR kids but maybe instead of calling them(police) maybe I should have just opened my door the next time and punched one right in their head!! Then maybe somthing would have got done (ME being arrested...lol) and the real problem going unpunished, which is what has been going on the whole time and it's all due to our Metropolis Police Dept. not getting off their lazy asses and doing their job!!! Anyone that would like to pick up on this...leave a # or somthing....news media, a lawyer that wouldn't mind taking on the city, cause these are only a few incidents, there are SEVERAL more incidents and other thing that people would find interesting!

All you have to do is call the Illinois office of the attorney general or go online to their website. They will investigate corruption and indifference. You can also call the Illinois State Police at Ullin and tell them that the police Dept here is not doing their job, even if you live in the city, they will check it out. I have called The Illinois Secretary of State Police in Springfield before too and complained. They WILL check out complaints. Try doing all of these things and you will get results.

ConcernedCitizen, obviously you've made an assumption that I'm a police officer in Metropolis. I'm NOT. I don't even reside in Metropolis, anymore. Since you articulate your 5th grade education SO well, I'll let your words speak for themselves. You sir, obviously have a hard-on out for the Metropolis Police Department and lets THAT cloud your judgement. You have other legal recourse's if your '13 year old baby' is being bullied without throwing blame on Law Enforcement. Get a life! Oh, and by the way, I like my profile pic. It fits my character.

I will tell you daveedave, you are a nut.

To the rest of you: The thing it has to be the attorney general. The state police are to good. But something is going to be done. don't worry. But when it comes down to it, people will not step up to the plate. I did, and you should too. The fbi can't without proving they commited a felony. The whole dept. needs to be investigated. The sheriff is also one who can tell you where to turn. He is a good guy, as most of his deputies. The city really does not dispatch the calls half of the time. Too many people talk about it. If enough complain, it will really happen. Call the Governor, too.

Ok remember the meth lab found and police looking for the residents that was on the news? Well they don't have to look too far as they are in their house despite the lab, both being on probation and one even being on parole, fleeing, oh and that other arrest she got earlier this week that was dropped as well. Never went to court, charges were never sought. This couple have several children in this house with them yet make shake and bake meth and nothing was done after their lab was found. Sounds like corruption, looks like corruption....must be corruption
