  1. Corrupt cops, corrupt district.

    What poor young souls will they conscript?

  2. I had the McHenery police department fabricate evidence and switch dates to file a court ordered warrant for arrest one month after the incident.

    Had a Johnsburg cop hit my brother in a one way construction zone, totalled the vehicle and called the McHenry division over, no ambulance was called and he was told the young cop wasn’t going to show up in court. He did.

    Several other things, don’t really care to prove this point. I’ve had them come at me, trying to make me the highest level of felon over 1 gram of weed.

  3. (whispers: none of those things are under the jurisdiction of the Sheriff’s Department)

  4. The corruption reached a high point under the Nygren misadministration.

    That’s my opinion. Had Zinke won, maybe new heights would have been reached.

    Under Prim, the corruption continued with the Bob Miller cover up.

    How’s that?!

  5. How about Mrs. Zinke?

    Did she ever do hardtime for the disappearing pills?

  6. Haters just gotta hate, right?

    I’m not saying all police officers are lily white, but they deserve the same protections afforded to the citizens that they serve: Innocent until proven guilty.

    How about you haters back up your allegations of corruption?

    If you can’t then shut up.

    For years we heard allegations of widespread corruption regarding the sheriff’s department, local police departments, the FBI, the state police. . . any agency that had power to deprive someone of their liberty.

    Rarely, if ever did we 1) hear any proof, 2) have the identity of the accuser or 3) witness any formal investigation brought about by someone actually coming forward with an allegation or evidence.

    A former candidate for coroner ran rampant for years making all sorts of wild accusations against a former sheriff.

    He told us of many long meetings with the feds and assured us that justice was moving and we would soon see that sheriff convicted and in prison.


    We’re still waiting for it to happen.

    I’m sure he (the accuser) would be happy to inform us now that the investigation is ongoing and the net is getting wider.

    It is just as likely, I think, that the accuser was abducted by aliens for testing and his brain was damaged by an anal probe.

    Now we can also add aliens to the list of those involved in the cover up.

    Where there is smoke there is fire?

    Sure, but with all the smoke and all the idiots fanning the smoldering pile for years you’d think there would be at least the flicker of a flame.

    There hasn’t been, only the smell of malcontents and losers.

    @StackerofWheat maybe, maybe maybe if my uncle had a compressor on his back he’d be a refrigerator.

  7. Give us a break, you must work for Prim or Kenneally. Did you get comp time for writing your swill?

  8. @Fade to Black

    Wrong! LOL!

    Don’t work for them, didn’t vote for either one of them.

  9. Give us a break, I concur w/ Stacker of Wheat above. What’s your response to what he/she wrote? Just ignore it?

    You are a democrat. Fess up, mope!
