UPDATE: Troopers on Burnett Facebook page alleged to be of Dist. 22Posted by Jack Howser on Monday, August 29th, 2011 @ 2:02 pm.
DIST. 22—We’ve learned that the photos of the Illinois State Police troopers featured here and as shown on Amber Burnett’s Facebook page (in an album entitled “Street Rally 2011″ ostensibly showing activity at the bar in Old Shawneetown back in July) actually are not of troopers from District 19, but troopers from District 22 in Ullin.
This morning we spoke with Captain Harry Masse, commander of District 22 ISP post in Ullin. Masse, one of the most professional troopers/law enforcement officers/Illinois State Police District Commanders we’ve ever had the pleasure to know, assured us that the appearance of his troopers from 22, if indeed they prove to be exactly that (because there are some serious Photoshopping wizpeople out there) is an isolated incident and is not at all what is expected or condoned of District 22 personnel.
He has advised that a report has been turned over to Internal Affairs and that an investigation will in all likelihood have begun TODAY into the alleged matter.
