Police Officer Files Suit Against City

The Daily Journal reports a former Kankakee Police officer is suing the city for wrongful termination.  According to the paper Michael Schreffler alleged the city violated his free speech rights to post on social media.  At issue are comments made about a Beyonce performance during the halftime show at the 2016 Super Bowl during which he criticized her choice of outfits. The singer was dressed as a Black Panther.   Schreffler says he was fired for exercising his First Amendment rights and did not violate the department’s social media policy.  City officials do not comment on pending legal action.
