Kansas police chief suspended after raid on local newspaper

  • Chief Gideon Cody has been suspended by Marion Mayor Dave Mayfield following the highly criticized raid of a small Kansas newspaper. The raid, which sparked a debate on press protections, involved searches of the newspaper's office and the homes of its publisher and a City Council member.
  • Vice-Mayor Ruth Herbel praised Cody's suspension, stating that it is the best thing for Marion as the town tries to move forward. The suspension is a reversal for Mayor Mayfield, who initially planned to wait for the results of a state police investigation.
  • Legal experts believe that the raid on the newspaper violated privacy laws and laws protecting journalists. The raid has also led to a federal lawsuit against Chief Cody. Furthermore, the stress caused by the raid may have contributed to the death of the newspaper publisher's 98-year-old mother.
