A Slap On the Wrist Files

Street Patrol

Slap On the Wrist Files

     The first story “The Times” did on Police Officer Leimbach case didn’t mention any of his “baggage” which didn’t sit well with me. However the following story that “The Times’ wrote. They broke it down like a shotgun and kudos to Sara Reese. But the most interest sidebar to me is Police Officer Arcides Santiago sitting in front row at a hearing involving Police Officer Leimbach of East Chicago Police Department. 
      It was Santiago in 2012 who was in front of the East Chicago Board of Public Safety on lewd conduct charges. He was allowed to keep his job as East Chicago Policeman. 
      And a lot of people knew Leimbach would also be allowed to keep his job. This especially after the alleged victim, who Mexican was, was taken away by (I.C.E.) Immigration and Customs Enforcement agent. Leimbach said that he drunk one or two shots and no more than seven beers in four hours at the bar. What happened to that standard line? I wasn’t drunk. I only had a couple of beers. Hammond cop hired Pabey.
