Description

Pitch Weekly reports on "the shenanigans of a small town police chief and his officers in Lone Jack, Mo., forty miles southeast of Kansas City." The story reveals that Chief Jeffrey Jewell was harassing his female staff and female juvenile offenders, while inefficiently handling most investigations. Another finding is that a police officer in Jewell's department had allegedly joined forces with local burglars to cover a theft ring.
