No differently than anybody else's....really???? If he didn't orchestrate it than it's the police chief or a senior police officer who overreacted. This is, of course, assuming the 7 officers response team is true. And if the warrant was about twitter seems to me the marijuana charge will have to be dropped as it's "fruit ot he poisonous tree" isn't it?

qfingers - City/Firefighters labor contract must be voted on again - Quincy, IL News -
Super majority only required if the mayor "vetoes" an item (Code 2.106). A pretty rare occurrence (has it ever happened here?) You can always re-vote a failed item if you want to. Not done very often though. In this case the resolution never passed or failed since no majority of elected members occurred either way. Not passing is not the same as disapproval.
