WOW-- so you give some links to stories of a few that acted incorrectly. Who arrested them, for them to plead guilty? POLICE Anyone can sue, rightly or wrongly, and big cities settle suits all the time, even those without a shred of merit. Police are human, and other police catch them and arrest them, or fire them. NYC has between 30.000 and 40,000 police, Chicago has between 8,000 and 13,500, LA…

one case comes to mind, the woman was certifiable, manic, and frequently hitting. Once he said "what's good for the goose is good for the gander" ... hit back but didn't hurt. That was all she wrote ... as if she was ready and had a game plan. Ran out all histrionic, called cops, badda bing badda boom ... got her divorce, money, easy peasy for the lawyers. The fact she was manic, domineering,…

If you mean you have no proof they pulled you over you're wrong. All stops are recorded video/audio as long as the lights are on. And if you ever get pulled over for no reason feel free to complain to the chief. If there's an officer doing that and multiple reports show up it will catch up to them.

Well, you'd better get used to that one: The woman slapping the hell outta the man and him going to jail for deflecting the blows. Not to say this is always, or even often the case, but it's worth considering.

VIDEO: Health Department, City officials respond to continued complaints about water supply

A dirty smell and taste has persisted in the water supply for more than a week

The Adams County Health Department and the City of Quincy are responding to the persistent complaints regarding the dirty smell and taste of the City's water supply because of brown algea getting into the system.

Click here for background story from Monday night.

From the Adams County Health Department: “The Health Department has been receiving an unusually high volume of calls regarding the quality of water in Quincy. As a result, we have spoken with the Quincy Water Department and confirmed with them that the City drinking water supply is safe to drink and has not failed any testing. We have also spoken with local medical providers, including Blessing Hospital, and have confirmed that there are no unusual clusters of illness occurring in Adams County.”

Director of Utilities David Kent says the City has done testing, but has been in contact with the Illinois Environmental Protection Agency and they will be conducting their own testing.

Kent also responded to a claim made by a woman to KHQA News saying doctors in St. Louis said Quincy's water could be a cause for a virus her daughter has.

"The City of Quincy's potable water meets all regulations established by the (U.S. Environmental Protection Agency) and the Illinois Environmental Proection Agency,” Kent said. “At no time has a representative, employer, or physician from St. Louis Children's Hospital made contact with the city to report a water-related illness caused by ingesting potable water of the city of Quincy.”

Maggie Carson from the IEPA said the agency is aware of Quincy's situation with fighting the brown algea.

 "We know people are sensitive to the taste and odor situation, but it's not a health risk," Carson said.
