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 - QuincyJournal.com
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.

Federal judge: Illinois politicians aren't getting message

3 months, 1 week ago from Associated Press

A federal judge who sentenced a former Chicago alderman to 10 1/2 years in prison says some Illinois politicians aren't getting the message that corrupt behavior carries a heavy price

  • CHICAGO — A federal judge who sentenced a former Chicago alderman to 10 1/2 years in prison says some Illinois politicians aren't getting the message that corrupt behavior carries a heavy price.
    He made the comment Friday while sentencing 60-year-old Ambrosio Medrano for scheming to accept bribes and kickbacks to sell bandages to hospitals.
    Medrano must report to prison by March 21. One prison where the defense says they'd like Medrano to go is the Colorado facility where former Illinois Gov. Rod Blagojevich is serving a 14-year sentence for corruption.
    Judge Gary Feinerman told Friday's hearing the "cost-benefit calculation" of politicians "is skewed" and too many conclude that the benefits outweigh the potential costs.
    He says he hopes Medrano's sentence will help "realign that cost-benefit calculation."
