Did Burr Oak Cemetery scandal or slur sideline Cook County Sheriff Detective? Another lawsuit Against Sheriff Tom Dart


In the days following the discovery of a grisly grave-reselling scandal at Burr Oak Cemetery in the summer of 2009, Cook County sheriff's Detective Robert Carroll walked into his sergeant's office and handed over his gun and badge.

By then, Carroll says, he had tripped over a half-buried pelvis, been slapped and spit on by family members of the deceased and found himself face-to-face with a decaying corpse in a blue burial suit.

Carroll has alleged in a federal lawsuit that the gruesome scene triggeredpost-traumatic stress disorderfrom his service in the first Gulf War two decades earlier.

Carroll's lawyers contend the sheriff's office refused his request for desk duty and then retaliated by trying to move him to patrol duty on an overnight shift.

Bob Carroll is a good policeman.

He is being truely fucked over by our administration for this.

The man fought for our country and his PTSD was not properly treated, much less acknowledged by our department. Then the PD sticks him in the damn cemetary to work that non-starter of a criminal case? I was there at Burr Oak. So sad what a shithole the place is. No one including the blacks deserve to be treated like that!

CPD brothers, tell me just once that this couldn't happen to a policeman in your agency? Damn right it could and has happened.

God bless you Bob, I hope you get what you need to make this right.

I don't know this Carroll or anything about him. If he is racist, he'll get his.

My dad was a disabled vet. There's an investigation. Doctors are seen. Witnesses are interviewed. It can take years. If he's got disabled war vet status (and it sounds like he does) then the Federal Government has already told the County that they're full of it on the rest of this. And an election year? Dart's screwed!
