From my blog to reality -- detective suspended for Cynthia George book

Well .. either it's a major coincidence or my blog post from Tuesday (What you're not hearing about APD right now) touched a nerve.

Akron Police have now suspended Detective Vincent Felber for 90 days for his book Perfect Beauty which takes aim at how the department handled the Cynthia George case.

Phil Trexler broke the suspension a short time ago in a story on and I'm told that he predicted the suspension would come this week during last week's NewsNight Akron.

Police leaders are confirming the suspension, but whether or not the media forced city hall's hand, it was time to bring this case to a resolution.
