So what's up with all the chatter lately about the Freeburg PD? They had to hire 3 PT officers due to investigation but mention in the Tribune one officer is fired? Why are the taxpayers given such limited information? Anyone know what's going on?

No one was terminated. It's on Channel 5 news tonight. Says Officer's on paid admin leave until Sheriff dept finishes investigations. Questionable behavior caught on tape. Per Ch 5 Ann Rubin

Why didn't Freeburg's paper have anything?

I understand their reasoning for not bringing too much into light but what paper/media wouldn't have put this latest development as the headline? HELLO....that's what sells paper is NEWS!! So does anyone question the Freeburg Paper? Or will it too be overlooked and not questioned? I believe if the media wanted to really dig into this a little deeper, the right person will discover some not ethical procedures happening within.

I love the brief interview on Channel 5 of someone saying the two officers in question are outstanding. I am not sure what your definition of outstanding is but this recent stunt isn't one of them and apparently it must run in their genes.

Sorry to disagree but the details in the local paper was an after math article. But we (the public) suspected nothing more considering one of the officers involved is their friend. But this isn't about the paper, it's about character...something those two lack.

Way too long. Too bad they didn't put all that energy into protecting the tax payers. Just embarrasing themselves, the Village n those who believe the bologna they are feeding info to. Wake up already.

Ok. Long enough vacation for Officers on paid Admin. leave. Time to clean house and we don't mean Merry Maids. Hire the people who need the jobs n toss the ones who are ruining our small town image. Question their two trustee buddies who are clueless & clearly do not have the Village's best interest in mind.

@ Thankful 1 couldn't agree more. We need to clean house in the whole department and the trustee side. Too many politics going on and covering the sneaky dirty and corrupt. Let's get people in those positions without a grudge or something to prove. I can't believe that sneaky backstabbing idiot is still there and being paid for nothing. I guess the village is afraid b/c the union is involved who by surprise is a dirty as the accused. It's clowns like him (them) that give good cops a bad name. He has a purpose and will take anyone down that gets in his path. He wont go down alone or without a fight. I certainly hope this proves the true colors. Just wish States Attn. would stop dragging feet. Enough already!!

To Dirt on hands-sounds like you know one of them. Can you enlighten the forum viewers? I will be anxious to see the outcome. BND here is your chance for a story, even though you may not get the info due to the on going investigation but needs to be in the paper so these two clowns cant sit on their fat backside laughing n vacationing while tax payers have to work. their family n friends will hear the truth soon.

Now that we've established the Officers in question, what are they being accused of? And why has the village agreed to leave on suspension with pay for 2 months? I just read on here they went on vacation...are you kidding me..the way i see it is s...t or get off the pot.

States Atty Office we have faith that Mr. Kelly will do the right thing. Too much negativity circling. J. Blomenkamp is also freeburg grade school president which almost everyone knows. The things going on there & he is in the middle of yet more scandal. Good grief.

Maybe the investigators don't want to take any chances and are covering all their bases before going in for the kill. A cousin said to show up at some of the meetings because blomenkamp & burrows have shown up. Trustee Speiser & matchett keep them up to date.
