Grady suggests race a factor in firing
DeKALB – Ousted Northern Illinois University Police Chief Donald Grady doesn’t believe evidence mishandled in a rape case was the only reason he was fired from his job.
In a Feb. 3 letter to NIU acting director of Public Safety Bill Nicklas, Grady said NIU officials treated him and Lt. Kartik Ramakrishnan differently than the white defendants in the coffee fund case. Grady is black, and Ramakrishnan is of Asian descent.
Grady pointed out that six of the eight employees charged with felonies in connection with that investigation are back at work.
