Edgar Co. (ECWd) –
Once again we see Edgar County Sheriff’s Deputy Dee Burgin being named in yet another civil rights police abuse case. Also named in the suit is the County of Edgar and the Edgar County Sheriff.
How many more lawsuits must this county face that involves Dee Burgin before someone removes his badge once and for all? Only in Illinois can a deputy violated a person’s civil rights and keep his badge and a gun. Now, once again, the taxpayers pay the price for the actions of this loose canon.
This case makes two current civil rights cases in a 4-month span (August 24th, 2016 – December 22, 2016) that name Burgin as the primary problem.1-main
