Hillview, Ky. police discover mayor’s son, backpack filled with meth-making materials at the mayor’s home. To save the mayor embarrassment, the police chief orders the officers to remove the backpack. They do, but an officer reports the incident to the authorities and word leaks to the public. Two officers who cooperate with an FBI investigation are subjected to series of dubious disciplinary actions. Sixth Circuit: Smells an awful lot like First Amendment retaliation.
