No, you simply implied that the murder would be pinned on innocent people.
But it doesn't really matter, does it? Because now no matter who's arrested you've set the table for your claim.
What is there to elaborate on? It's pretty cut and dry. A trooper was murdered on his front doorstep. That's not hyperbole. The murder is unsolved to this day. That's not hyperbole. Not sure what you need clarification on.
But im afraid that since law enforcement is so corrupt and cant stand to look inept that they will pin this off on a innocent party. They will pick out two white men and a black man they find undesirable and no alibi and they will get framed. You can bet on it
(CNN)—Officers have identified and interviewed three people caught on video near the scene of Fox Lake, Illinois, police Lt. Joe Gliniewicz's slaying and determined they were not involved in the crime, an investigator said Tuesday during a press conference.
Lake County Major Crime Task Force Commander George Filenko said the men were captured on video taken by a home security system and a truck driver who had a camera in his vehicle the day Gliniewicz was killed.
"We have confirmed at this point they were not involved in this," he said. "Those individuals have established their whereabouts in that time frame." He did not identify the men.
Filenko also said DNA evidence was recovered at the crime scene that did not belong to Gliniewicz.
Investigators are comparing the DNA to a national database, he said. About 50 interviewed suspects have been swabbed for DNA, he said.
This case did not sound right from the get go. Now, finally more is coming out. Given the Fox Lake police chief was let go the week before, related to only a one week old investigation of a year old case of improper treatment of a drunk person, you have to wonder if this is related. One officer was also put on administrative leave due to that incident. There are only 5-6 police in the dept. and 2 were in trouble. What role did Gliniewicz have in that matter? Was he involved or did someone want revenge on him?
The mayor reported having a conversation with his "good friend" Gliniewicz the day before he died, in which he asked him to move UP his retirement from the end of the year to the end of September. Why? The mayor also reported he had tried to contact Gliniewicz the morning he heard of an officer being shot to tell him to come in to work because they needed more help. Was Gliniewicz not scheduled to work that day? Why didn't the mayor know he was the officer involved in the shooting?
A neighbor reported seeing Gliniewicz going to work at 6 am. Yet he was shot right before 8 am, supposedly ON HIS WAY to work. Where was he for those 2 hours? Why was he driving down this dirt road to the remote location by an abandoned cement factory before even being on duty? Was he meeting someone there? Did he suspect he was in danger, thereby putting on his bullet proof vest? Do police officers in Fox Lake usually drive around with bullet proof vests while on duty? He was shot through the bullet proof vest in the stomach, this article claims. That suggests the gun was very near his body. Did he know his assailant?
Could he have committed suicide if he knew his job and reputation were in trouble due to the earlier police investigation? Was he protecting his image, his family and his pension by taking his own life under the guise of following 3 suspects? These are questions that have to be asked to eliminate all possibilities in solving his death.
NO Fox Lake police have been involved in this investigation I learned. If I have noticed these inconsistencies in following the case, why haven't the media? The national and local media have sadly dropped the ball on this case. They do not investigate or question. Everyone has jumped on the bandwagon on the hero cop story and their family that no one is trying to get to the truth.
This is the first story to hint there is more to this story. Question more.

Your article neglects to mention that he was shot twice. Once in the vest, and once at the base of his neck above his back (and above his vest).
It asks some interesting questions, but some of the others reek of "throw it at the wall and see what sticks" to me.
OX LAKE, Ill. (WLS) -- More than a week after Fox Lake Police Lt. Gliniewicz was found shot to death in a remote, industrial area, the Lake County Coroner's office has yet to make a ruling on the manner of death.
Lake County Coroner Thomas Rudd told ABC7 Eyewitness News on Wednesday that Lt. Gliniewicz died from a "single, devastating wound" but declined to say where he was shot or how many times.
Rudd would not say whether the bullet came from his own or another gun.
He has not ruled out homicide, suicide or accidental death and said he needs findings from Lake County Major Crimes Task Force before making a determination.
Gliniewicz initially radioed that he was pursuing three suspicious men, but investigators said they have found no surveillance video showing the suspects.
On Monday, investigators said their most significant piece of evidence is DNA that was found at the crime scene. Authorities say it does not belong to Lt. Gliniewicz, but officials have yet to say whether they have found a match.
New videos obtained in just the last 24 hours could shed light on the slaying of a Fox Lake police officer, the head of the investigation said Friday.
“We’ve acquired several more videos that we believe are even more relevant” than one that investigators turned over earlier this week to the Department of Homeland Security, Lake County Major Crime Task Force Cmdr. George Filenko said at a news conference Friday.
The videos, which came from home and business surveillance cameras, have been turned over to the FBI for analysis and editing to create one video showing the area both before and after the shooting of Fox Lake Police Lt. Charles Joseph Gliniewicz.
“The FBI has the technology to put these videos in sequential order,” Filenko said. “I think we’re optimistic about all the videos now, because they all come together.”
Also on Friday, Schaumburg-based Motorola Solutions announced a $50,000 reward for information leading to the arrest and conviction of those responsible for the officer’s death.
Filenko would not say if the new videos clearly show the three suspects, allowing only that “there is a commonality there” among the videos.
A week after the shooting, Lake County Major Crimes Task Force Cmdr. George Filenko said police had interviewed the men in the video compiled from residences and businesses and ruled them out as suspects using items such as time-stamped receipts.
