Will County State’s Attorney James Glasgow Destroys Lives
Joliet, IL—How many lives will James Glasgow ruin before he’s removed from office? Glasgow never met a TV camera he didn’t love. He never missed a chance to rush to judgment and destroy lives on the flimsiest of evidence.
Prosecutors in America can indict a ham sandwich with ease. Prosecutors have a two-fold duty, prosecution of the guilty and to seek justice. Too many like James Glasgow have redefined their mission to grabbing and prosecuting the nearest human and to generate as many self-serving press releases as possible.
Corrupt prosecutors love to abuse victims and their families by misleading them about the evidence and using them as media show ponies. The public can’t get enough images of sympathetic and heroic appearing prosecutors with their arms around weeping victims. Victims and their families somehow always blindly support their exploiters long after these cases are over.
That’s always great TV for the Nancy disGrace show on CNN. The Internet becomes filled with hate for the accused as the jury pool is tampered through modern technology like never before in history. Getting a fair trial anymore is nearly an impossible challenge.
Will County State’s Attorney, James Glasgow did some serious damage to Lynwood, IL police officer Brian Dorian and his family. Investigators invaded Dorian’s privacy by grabbing his cell phone records and computer data that with other evidence placed the cop far away from the murder.
Search warrants were served on Dorian’s home and vehicle as investigators went through every intimate aspect of his private life. His firearms were seized, along with clothing, computers and storage devices. It may be months yet before everything is returned.
I can’t imagine what the damage done to Dorian is worth. Prosecutors enjoy immunity and generally can get away with this stuff on a regular basis.
Glasgow can be expected to say the system worked and justice was done. Justice won’t be done until Dorian is compensated and Glasgow is removed by the voters. For Brian Dorian the system did not work and he needs somehow put his life back together.
