Fox Lake Cop Death Ruled “Suicide”

Death of Fox Lake Officer, Charles Joseph Gliniewicz in September 2015,  is now being officially ruled as a suicide.

Officials Say Illinois Cop’s Death Will Be Declared a Suicide

Authorities will announce that a northern Illinois police officer whose shooting death led to a massive manhunt in September killed himself, an official briefed on the crime investigation told The Associated Press.

The Lake County Sheriff’s Office has called a Wednesday news conference to announce “conclusive results” of the investigation. The official spoke to the AP Tuesday night on condition of anonymity because he was not authorized to brief the media.

The investigation into the death of Lieutenant Charles Joseph Gliniewicz determined that the Fox Lake officer died of a self-inflicted gunshot wound, other media outlets reported Tuesday, all citing anonymous sources.

A spokesman for the Lake County Sheriff’s Office, Christopher Covelli, declined any comment Tuesday evening. The office said in a statement that it would not comment until the news conference.

Gliniewicz, a U.S. army veteran affectionately known as “G.I. Joe,” radioed on Sept. 1 that he was chasing three suspicious men on foot. Backup officers later found his body 50 yards from his squad car.

Authorities said in October that the officer, 52, was shot with his own weapon.

He was struck by two rounds, one that hit his ballistic vest with the force of a “sledgehammer” and another that pierced his upper chest, Lake County Major Crimes Task Force Commander George Filenko said at the time.

After Gliniewicz’s shooting, a massive manhunt ensued, with hundreds of officers searching houses, cabins and even boats on a chain of area lakes. Authorities released a vague description of three suspects, though no one was ever arrested.

Flags flew at half-staff in honor of the 30-year police veteran after the shooting in Fox Lake, a close-knit community of 10,000 residents located about 50 miles north of Chicago. Signs with the officer’s picture hung in storefront windows.

The tattooed officer with a shaved head was described by those who knew him as tough when needed, but also as sweet and a role model to youngsters aspiring to go into law enforcement.

Just released, they “why” of the suicide…

Illinois Cop ‘Carefully Staged Suicide,’ Committed Crimes, Investigators Say

Authorities say an Illinois police officer who killed himself in what they say was an elaborately staged suicide embezzled money from a police program for seven years.

Lake County Major Crimes Task Force Commander George Filenko led the investigation into the Sept. 1 shooting death of Fox Lake police Lieutenant Charles Joseph Gliniewicz.

Filenko said Wednesday that Gliniewicz had been stealing and laundering money from the Fox Lake police explorers club, which he oversaw. He says Gliniewicz spent thousands of dollars of the money to pay for personal purchases, mortgage payments and travel, among other things.

On the day he died, Gliniewicz radioed that he was chasing three suspicious men. His death led to a large manhunt, but no arrests were made.

Your Police Force on KKKrack

And you have to wonder why they fired this moron? And those sheets he is wearing have nothing to do with racism!

Louisiana Police Officer Is Upset That He Was Fired for Attending KKK Rally

A Lake Arthur, Louisiana, police officer named Raymond Mott is upset that he was fired for attending a Ku Klux Klan rally and plans to sue over his dismissal, area ABC affiliate KATC reports. Mott was photographed at a rally in North Carolina in 2014 wearing Klan insignia and holding his left hand up in a Klan salute:

“The picture speaks for itself,” said Mott. “I’m standing at a rally against illegal immigration. There’s not much to be said about the picture. I’ve never denied it was me.”

From the Southern Poverty Law Center’s writeup on a piece in the local Jennings Daily News that’s paywalled:

“I have never even had a negative write-up in my file since my start in law enforcement as a reserve in 2006,” Mott told the Jennings newspaper.  “I am not going to quit my job because I made a decision to support a cause I thought was right at the time – illegal immigration not racism,” he added.

When a Good Cop Falls

I talk about the bad actions of some Police, and in the case of Ferguson,MO and Harris County, Texas – bad Police Departments. However – those departments and Officers are not the norm, which makes it even more frustrating the opposition to weeding the bad guys out. There are many, many decent folks who wear the uniform. When one falls doing his/her job, we owe them our respect and support in catching whoever did the crime.

Sad situation in Fox Lake, Illinois. A veteran Police officer was shot and killed by 3 men. Lt. Joe Gliniewicz’s death on Tuesday has left Fox Lake, a community of about 10,000 people in northern Illinois, with a huge void. The apparently well-loved officer left behind a wife and four sons. In a small community like Fox Lake, where typically it seems everybody knows everybody else, folks are particularly hard hit. As a side note, I have driven through that area, on my way from Chicago to Lake Geneva via Rt 12 to see friends, and even stopped there on the lake for dinner.

The lieutenant made the first call at 7:52 a.m. and called three minutes later to request backup. The backup units arrived at 8:01 and found their fellow officer dead, roughly 50 yards from his vehicle, at about 8:09, Filenko said.

Police continue to search for the suspects.

And yeah – I have added this one to my Domestic Terrorism folder.
