  1. I question why they are making this a bigger deal than Christopher Lambert. They are turning this into a complete circus. Think about how terrible they are treating the actual friends of this man (they have to park at WalMart and shuttle bus in) just to put on this horrible show.

  2. I suggest it is total disrespect to turn this man’s funeral into a circus just to flaunt your pomp and circumstance. Why not let the actual family and friends have their peace and put your circus on some other date far away and have your memorial to him then? Turning this into a show is highly objectionable. It borders on blasphemy.

  3. Cindy, believe it or not, but maybe his family is supportive of it?

  4. Alabama?

    You could be right.

    Even if that were true in the sense you mean it, they will be really sorry later.

    People often make really bad judgments when they are under such extreme conditions.

    Just the fact that the bereaved wife is penning letters to the newspapers shows how unstable she is right now.

    It’s a really messed up world we live in.

  5. I have nothing but sympathy for those left behind by this senseless killing in the line of duty but I read this itinery and shudder.

    All three of our major arteries in Woodstock, Crystal Lake and Lake and the hills all but shut down for the better part of a day?


    I cancelled my appointments and am staying home.

  6. **Even if that were true in the sense you mean it, they will be really sorry later. **

    Please… keep telling a grieved widow how she should grieve.

    I’m sure she appreciates it.

  7. Cindy is right, AGAIN!

    Why the hell are the schools shut down?

    Would the slain officer have approved?

  8. I am a little shocked by some of the comments here and embarrassed for you.

  9. God Bless the family.

    I’m proud this man has such support.

    Let me just say that perhaps it’s important to us to show our sympathy and support for this real hero of a fallen officer after so many were duped by Gleniwicz of Lake County.

    Keltner was the real deal.

    Rest In Peace, officer, and thanks to you and your family for your sacrifices to protect the people you served.

  10. Alabama? You are STILL an idiot. Regret is something you feel. It is NOT something you can tell others to have. You certainly love to stick your foot in your mouth!
