 - Police dog dies after being left in officer's car for 13 hours in 109-degree heat."

Feds Say Ex-Illinois Chief Was Bad Guy
Chief accused of running 'illegal racketeering enterprise'


The feds Thursday called it "an illegal racketeering enterprise."
In Melrose Park, it was known as the police department.
A federal grand jury Thursday indicted the west suburb's former police chief and six current and former cops and village employees, accusing them of shaking down local businesses from at least 1996 until 2006.
Vito R. Scavo, who retired last year after 30 years on the force, including 12 as the police chief, was accused of forcing local businesses to hire a private security company he owned and then using village officers, squad cars and offices for his own benefit.
