    • Might have known something and needed silenced. Not all cops are angels no matter how much the apologists want you to believe it. Just look at the Southern Illinois dirty Sheriff. You’d be naive to think he was the only one. Where’s the article on dirty cop Winters? I’m told he’s been a really bad apple for quite a while. The fact he’s been given so many awards is quite disturbing.
