Readers oppose police close-look

A recent reader survey question was, “Should the McHenry County Board establish a Civilian Police Investigatory Agency?"

Yes 11 (21%)
No 42 (79%)

Many thanks to the 53 readers who responded.

Why should a panel of appointed citizens not have the right to investigate law enforcement actions in its own jurisdiction? Would it necessarily become a witch hunt?

Would it be a place where the “Serpicos” could safely speak up?
