"The Secret Life of G.I. Joe" on CNN: apparently, a tragic police suicide near Chicago


CNN aired another investigative documentary of police problems last night:  “The Secret Life of GI Joe”.  Michael Martinez describes the story on CNN’s best link for the film here. The story is narrated by Pamela Brown.



The original reports for the incident in Fox Lake, IL were that three men, one black and two while, had shot Police Lt. Joe Gliniewicz, whose body was found Sept. 1, 2015.  But eventually investigation would show a suicide.  The gunshot pierced his pulmonary artery, which meant it took longer to expire.  The report would go on to depict the hidden, troubled life of the police officer, “hero to a new low” with serious character flaws.
