The commment below was made on a different forum but it inspired me to start a new forum discussion. What suggestions do you have for everyday citizens to deal with taking out the trash in the City Council and Police Department. I feel that more transparency is needed and less behind the scenes deal making would help. What do you suggest.
Quote below From Concerned on the Police Officer Suspended topic:
"I am very concerned when I read remarks like I have just read. Yes there are good cops in Highland and I do feel safe living in the town, but yes there are some bad cops as well and those are the ones we really do need to get rid of. The detective we have in town what a joke, I will give you a perfect example, a young girl accuses a man of raping her, she later admits she lied she was given a physical and guess what she was still a virgin, but this wonderful detective Cough Cough that we have, prosecuted the man and railroaded him into pleading guilty for a crime he did not commit. I guess the almighty dollar and promotion is worth a lot more than your sense of decency.I almost forgot this same detective knew some one that was accused of raping a child but told the Mother of the child he could not charge him because of lack of evidence strange you need evidence on one but not on another don't you think. So my question is this do we let things like this continue or do we stop it now and really have a police force we can be proud of and lets all say no to dirty cops in Highland"
