The most astounding revelation of McHenry County Sheriff Bill Prim when he spoke to the McHenry County Board Tuesday morning was that the Sheriff’s Office “lost ten tons of documents that were shredded–20,000 pounds.”
If a ream of paper (500 sheets) weights six pounds, there would be about 3,333 reams in 20,000 pounds.
That works out to 1,666,665 pages.
There were comments about shredding on McHenry County Blog before Sheriff Keith Nygren left office.
Right after the primary election in which Andy Zinke narrowly lost to Bill Prim on 3-22-14 had “Rich” writing:
The Sheriff’s office cannot fall…
There are enough boxes and shredding machines in this state…
4-18-14 saw “RegimeOver” write this:
Priest, aka Pyle the pedophile.
Zane’s prohibited behavior was to not disclose actual county documents of the MCSO.
I congratulate who ever posted them.
When Zane’s case is over, all of the documents will reach the public.
And when Prim takes over I’m sure the RITA report will finally make it to the public.
You assholes better start shredding as many documents as you can, your time is coming.
Discipline up to termination and/or criminal prosecution may be in order.
Here’s what “anotherwatcher” wrote on 5-2-14:
mark and voter, if they are worried that Harrison will not have enough signatures on his petitions, you had better bet, all kinds of things will will be shredded.
“Bazinga” wrote on 5-2-14:
Please make a committee to replace all shredders BEFORE BILL PRIM TAKES OFFICE !
“Happy Trails To You” on 5-5-14
Bill Prim…… I can hear those shredders going too…. and more budget costs for the new Sheriff… better add some new shredders for that office too !
Any other office need them ?!
“Voter” on 5-9-14
I think it’s called the Zinke shredder.

Holy Smokes !!
I don’t see any shredders in the ledgers, but I’m sure there will be !
Also from “voter” on 6-23-14:
Not to worry, ask yourself the question, why would a successful attorney want to run for Sheriff when He does not have the experience in that field?
Is it because if he won he could hide anything that has not been shredded?
Is it to protect the old regime?
or is it to get free marketing for his law firm?
And from “voter” on 11-8-14 (after the November election when Bill Prim beat Jim Harrison for Sheriff:
Old Man Winter, that is too funny.
I almost forgot about the Zinkester. l.o.l.
From now until December he most likely is using the shredding machine and you know Duncan the circus is in town.
But the mailroom job is unbeatable l.o.l.
From Duncan McHenry on 11-8-14:
The shredding machine will be worn out by the time the Nygren and Zine circus leaves town.
Here’s one from “The facts state” on 11-9-14:
Ah, Is it true that someone beat Nygren and Zinke to the shredding machine and saved some crucial “damaging” documents ?
Apparently Nygren left town so fast without taking his copies.
Remember, videos can’t go through a shredding machine, duh !
Here’s one from “voter” on 12-20-14 (Prim had been sworn in by then.)
Gus, remember those shredders when Zinke knew he lost to Prim.
They went on overtime.
Maybe all is not lost.
