"The gun had apparently been cleaned
recently, and it was too oily to take any
prints from," Lahners said. "Rallis is the
only one who reportedly saw Stewart
handle the gun in question."
He said he has not yet decided if he will
release his file on the Lewis case, regardless
of whether Boosalis releases police files.
Boosalis said certain information in the
LPD report will be withheld to protect
the informant who assisted police in the
original drug case against Lewis.
Hansen said the police files on the Lewis
case "couldn't be released before now be

of the officer in question (Loos)."
Lahners took extensive statements from
all the officers and deputy sheriffs in
regard to the Lewis case, he added.
"Now there is no reason for the files not
to be public information," he said.
Hansen said the file, released by Mayor
Boosalis, will be available for public inspec

the board will not hear grievances regarding
that incident. Seven citizens selected by
the mayor and approved by the City
Council will compose the board.
Boosalis said her office has not received
a significant number of complaints about

onstrating at the County-City Building did
not go to her office. 6
Hansen said Tuesday that the Lewis case
offered an opportunity for corrective
action to be taken as soon as possible
"Rather than treat everything Uke j
problem, I like to treat it as an opportun
ity," Hansen said.
Nothing would be done by Lincoln
police to incite any further problems
he added. '
"It is the main duty of the police to
protect the citizens and their property"
he said. "The main question is, are we
doing justice to the people we are dealing
The police files on the Lewis case were
kept secret pending possible charges against
