Jake Keltner’s Funeral — 4 Comments

  1. Let me get this straight, this fellow was on the McHenry County payroll, but was ‘loaned out’ to the US Marshall’s Office, a great gig, because the feds pay huge overtime (higher rate and far more than McH Co. Sheriff’s Office.)

    But what about the 8,000 unserved warrants in McHenry Co.?

    Why wasn’t he assigned to those?

    Yes, this is tragic, and the scum killer is fit for the death penalty.

    But why was the sheriff’s office doing this in the first place????

    What’s the benefit to McHenry County taxpayers?

    Of course there’s a benefit in getting the scum off the streets, but why can’t The US Marshal’s Office just have hired Keltner outright.

    Why were these loaned sheriff’s deputies in Wisconsin, Iowa and even Washington State. What gives?

  2. There is no gain to MCSO, but most of the warrants in this area are for illegal aliens who are long gone and not easily served.

    The US Marshals have enough of their own that they don’t really need our people but will take anything we will give them.

    It started under the last admin and has been expanded with the new one.

    We have a penchant for task forces in this area.

    We really need to consolidate Law enforcement, kind of like Metro/Dade.

    That would save manpower, money and duplicity when it comes to toys and tanks.

  3. **most of the warrants in this area are for illegal aliens who are long gone and not easily served.**

    Got data on that?

  4. Rest In Peace. Prayers for you and your loved ones left behind.
