  1. Look at that sweet face. He looks like a frightened kindergartener. The eyes are extremely telling. I wonder what happened to him in his childhood that made him so ugly now. Why did his parents not nurture this sweet child? Ugh!

  2. The picture says it all, and that’s why I CC.
    Enjoy your stay at the Gray Bar Hotel, Kenny.
    I’m sure you will meet many like minded friends and develop deep and long lasting friendships.

  3. Why is it that this kid was sent to prison and legions of Defendants in McHenry County with the same charges are not sent to prison?

    It’s because they have no political connections!

    How come middle aged white guys that should be charged are not?


    Hopefully, Mr K will apply the passion for prosecution to those that have long been the holder of privileged Offices and escaped the view of misconduct by being schrewd.

    This kid didn’t get away with $47,000.

    This kid didn’t abuse trust of the public.

    This kid was stupid and impulsive and wrong.

    Maybe even had a history.

    The system is broken when the law is not applied equally.

  4. Wow, Frank. I had never thought of Patrick as racist. This puts a little different spin on him when you phrase it that way.

  5. Frank, you obviously are not paying attention or have an axe to grind.

    Have you bothered to learn of this defendant’s criminal past?

  6. Jim? I don’t think Frank was trying to exonerate this person. He was griping about what is ongoing in the crooked McHenry County. I think his gripe is legitimate! No one is cleaning up the public swamp that our own government contains!

  7. poor kid, must not be friends with the millers, because we all know they cant be touched

  8. First and foremost stop talking about my brother like that.

    He has made mistakes bt just like u all have.
