Motorola influence the Sheriff to encrypt?
Motorola has contributed to Winnebago County Sheriff Caruana election campaign.
Records show that Motorola has contributed on two different occasions to his election campaign
5/20/2016 for $2,500.00 and also on 6/28/2017 for $1,000.00
Starcom and the system the used to upgrade, is from Motorola. You can read it all in the link below (PDF) that was released via the Freedom Of Information Act
Edit: A fan said: Motorola provides computer modules designed specifically for law enforcement and squad cars…and they repair them. One of it’s national repair centers was in Rockford…I don’t know if it still is. It’s not likely Motorola is providing campaign money for encryption at all. That doesn’t make it any less sleazy though. Campaign donations like this…legal or not…are sleazy and promote an appearance of impropriety.
If that is the case, then WHY didn’t Motorola contribute to ALL law enforcement agencies???
But instead they choose to only contribute to 14 selected people (See below)
