These Cops were So Corrupt, that their Entire Department was Just Raided by Multiple Agencies

The  Free Thought Project – by John Vibes

Brooklyn, Illinois – This week, the Brooklyn Police Department was raided by a number of other law enforcement agencies, including, the Illinois State Police, and the St. Clair County Sheriff.

On Wednesday, local news crews witnessed police from different agencies carrying equipment, computers, weapons and records out of the building and driving away with them.  

Local News 4 reported that the raid was connected to corruption allegations, which relate to the theft of evidence, weapons, drugs and other items from the evidence room.

Outside the Police Department, Illinois State Police Capt. James Morrisey told reporters that the raid was “in reference to some allegations received by Illinois State Police and the State’s Attorney’s office. No further information is available at this time.”

One former officer, Chris Heatherly reportedly kept an AR-15 rifle in his car that had been stolen from the evidence room. He flaunted the rifle in a photo that was later used for a police department calendar. Other guns and drugs that were missing from Heatherly’s cases have yet to be found.

The St. Clair County’s State’s Attorney is now refusing to prosecute any cases that Heatherly was involved in because his actions prove that he cannot be trusted as a witness. Heatherly was forced to resign after the accusations surfaced, but he is not currently facing any charges.

In a statement, St. Clair County State’s Attorney Brendan Kelly wrote:

While it appears, from the evidence available to my office at this time, Mr. Heatherly had no criminal or malicious intent, I am struck by the fact that he is a veteran police officer who knew or should have known that his actions breached the integrity of the evidence in a criminal case. Mr. Heatherly’s choice to remove a rifle from evidence on a pending case constitutes a flagrant violation of fundamental police protocol and thus creates an irreparable credibility deficit.”

Heatherly was the only specific name released to the public, but if the whole police department was raided, there is a good chance that more widespread abuse is suspected.

  1. “On Wednesday, local news crews witnessed police from different agencies carrying equipment, computers, weapons and records out of the building and driving away with them.”

    Pot/kettle…those “different agencies” are every bit as corrupt as those they raided.

    We just need to be shown that the ‘good’ pigs are ALL over the ‘bad’ ones.

    Anna Nicole married for love, too.

  2. Back in IL. For a short time. Born and raised here. IL. police have used there own Grandkid’s as hit men to avoid investigation in the past. So I would think any one that talks in the IL. Police could end up dead. They are that type of organization in IL. Very powerfull. They don’t like a Judge in IL. They harass them off the Bench has happened. A officer don’t come to the right decision in a case the way they want it. They are fired in IL. Has happened. So what is tis a smoke screen to cover? In IL. A Paul Simon deal?

    1. Finally?!? Cops stealing from cops.
      Both Illinois State Patrol and St. Clair county sheriff have been in these very pages for corruption/abuse, dog murder, swatting innocents and various and sundry Nazi tactics, so how’re they doing good by heisting taxpayer loot for themselves?
      Pure propaganda to look like they are doing anything positive.

  3. maybe so but something similar here is taking place. probably not as dramatic as this, being officers here are all on paid leave pending investigation. even if they get away with it, the only solace I get is knowing the spotlight was turned on them for all to see.
    perhaps a changing of the guards is all.
