    A worriesome thought just occured to me. What IF he was researching truckers for past or recent offenses, so that he might be able to approach them about transporting a package and getting something off their record?

    Would that even be in the realm of possibilities?

    If an officer had any credibility then pulled something like that I'm sure they would be monitored closely after that, even if they only did it to be nosey but committed no crime.

    yes, it's a big NO-NO, but that's the thing; it's rare anyone ever complains, because THEY might need a 'favor' one day....someone that doesn't like DP is just now spilling the beans over this..wonder why him doing this wasn't reported before now....?

    anyway, i'm glad it's happening to him & hopefully this will screw up his retirement $$

That way, the original agency can immediately contact the investigator who ideally has the person he is investigating in custody.

    The NYPD is constantly firing civilians who use the warrant search system to check on the backgrounds of their new boyfriends/girlfriends. The firing results when the boyfriend/girlfriend pops a warrant, a department alert is auto-generated and then the Department learns that nobody was arrested to satisfy the warrant check. A nice system of checks and balances to prevent abuse. Most PDs do not operate on that level.
    exactly....most don't

    Thanks Chico for removing the "Fox News" and the "alert" icon, from this thread title. I didn't want to delete it after so many posters responded.

    Here is a link to the article pertaining to police misconduct that was posted earlier today by SuziQ, and you, Chico, in the media links thread, in case anyone missed it. (Thanks to you both!)

    Fox News reporting on this right now in their 2:00pm news hour. They reported that DP was doing background checks on Stacy's family just prior to her going missing.

    A reporter asked DP about doing these background checks, and this was his response (paraphrasing): "There's about 5 families here in this area that are losing their homes. Why don't you put your time and resources into helping those families instead of harassing mine."

    Greta was asked about the latest developments in the case and she stated that the two trucker that were approached refused to take the package. Greta said that if this is true, it's a bombshell. She said that hypothetically if DP got a no from these two truckers, he could have gotten a yes from another trucker later on in the wee hours of the morning of Oct. 29th.

    Prosecutors Take Over Internal Peterson Probe

    CHICAGO (AP) ― Prosecutors are reviewing an internal Bolingbrook Police investigation to determine whether a former sergeant suspected in his wife's disappearance could be criminally charged for what the department alleges were instances of official misconduct.
    Attorney Joel Brodsky said Monday that Peterson denies using department computers or databases to gather information about his wife's family or friends or in any unauthorized way. Brodsky said he has written in a letter to Will County State's Attorney James Glasgow that charging Peterson with doing so would constitute "vindictive prosecution" because others have not been charged with a practice Brodsky says is widespread.

    ~snip~

    The attorney speculated a truck driver who had been so sought out had seen Peterson in the news and "all of a sudden sticks Drew's face onto this guy who approached him in the truck stop."

    "And now we've got some bologna lead we've got to chase down," he said.

    http://cbs2chicago.com/local/drew.pe....2.601524.html

    At least he refrained from using the word "crazy" this time. Now he is going to start using lunchmeat metaphors. : )

    Most likely Drew P ran a check on Scott Rosotto. That just sounds like something a police officer would do if he had suspicions that his wife might be having an affair. We know that Drew P most likely got Rosotto's address, because that is where he went to make the phone call.

    But doing checks on her family members? Why would he do that?

    You know Drew P complains a lot about not having privacy with the media camped outside his door. But it seems that he himself may be guilty of invading other's privacy through his official position.
    Just when I think that I have seen the most depraved things a human can do to another human, somebody posts a new story...........

    Why is it that when a custodial parent fails to provide for a child it is called neglect and is a criminal matter. But when a non custodial parent fails to provide it is called failure to support and is a civil matter?

    In a round about way Brodsky says that DP DID do the background checks on Stacy's family and friends, because he states that it's a vindictive prosecution for something that is widespread. It's the old, "everyone does it" excuse for DP's wrong-doing.

    Along these same lines: I read the list of the 18 or so calls by both Drew and his third wife To the cops during their divorce. It seems Drew stopped her and wrote her a ticket
    For having Bald Tires on her car. He thought that was pretty funny. The DA dropped
    That charge after she vowed to fight it. Later on, “someone” broke into her house and
    Took a certain couple pieces of jewelry Drew had bought. I wonder who that could have been? Speaking of which; on I believe Oct 18 or thereabouts he bought an expensive
    Ring for Stacy. I wonder if that was found in the house, or did she take that with her?
    Also there was mention one of their Undercover Cops was ratted out by a fellow officer.
    I believe Mr. Peterson is suspected there too. I would guess that particular item could really get
    Someone upset. He is lucky he is even Getting a pension eh? Maybe using that computer
    for background checks is the very Least of his problems.

    I would take it to mean that, too. Why write a letter like that if it is "nothing", "bologna", "craziness", or "nonsense"?!

    BBP turns case over to PROSECUTOR.HUGE!

    DP avoided internal investigation meeting with his atty by resigning day before hearing, therefore, saving his pension and prosecution:

    bye, bye drew
