I was going to pass on the story out of DeKalb about the police chief of the Northern Illinois University Police Department. That is, until today's story in the DeKalb Daily Chronicle that reported his pay.
$205,988. Can you believe that? Over two hundred thousand dollars annually for a campus police chief.
Sure hope the police chief at MCC isn't reading the Northwest Herald. Guess who will be asking for a raise?!!!
Chief Donald Grady is in hot water, along with Lt. Kartik Ramakrishnan, for allegedly withholding information about one of their officers who was accused of raping a student. Apparently, the officer had an sexual relationship with the student. Read the Daily Chronicle story, which will probably show up in the Shaw Media sister paper, the Northwest Herald.
Check out the photo of Grady, complete with his clip-on black tie. Does that look up a $205,000 cop? What could possibly make a university police chief worth $205,988? Is it any wonder the State of Illinois is broke?
Almost $4,000/week! And that's not counting vacation or benefits. Enough to make you sick, right?
