I posted a few days ago about an Illinois judge who refused to cooperate with officers investigating him for felony DUI, refusing to submit to field sobriety and breath tests. The hypocrisy applies to law enforcement as well:
Officer Honored for DUI Arrests Charged in
Pekin, Ill. Dec. 13. AP – An off-duty central Illinois police officer honored two years ago for cracking down on drunken driving has been charged in an alcohol-related crash that injured 10 people… (Greg)
Heiken, honored by the Illinois Department of Transportation’s traffic safety division in 2004 for making the most DUI arrests in Woodford County, faces up to three years in prison and could lose his job if convicted of the felony aggravated DUI charge…
Heiken admitted drinking at the Par-A-Dice, but refused blood-alcohol testing, according to the affidavit. Blood was taken against his wishes because people were injured in the accident, but test results were not available.
Funny how judges and cops have one righteous standard for the public, quite another for themselves.
