  1. Compassionate conservative libertarians must vehemently oppose this meeting. After all, who are law enforcement officers to tell us what to do with our lives? Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock…

  2. The unhinged Left checking in this morning … always good for a laugh.

  3. No suicide prevention training would have saved my friends who thought death was a better option than living. 3 friends over the years. No warning signs from any of the poor souls.

  4. Sad to see someone reach this point. Harder still for many families to take the steps necessary to protect their loved ones when they are a danger to themselves or others. Meanwhile the progressive Left like Angel is filling our youngsters with all sorts of mindless crap lifted from their projections of self importance. Her ilk confuse a graduation certificate with knowledge. After all they have many in order to be in the highest pay band, therefore they must be smart 🙂 Sad 🙁 Gives a bad name to true educators

  5. Compassionate conservatives never waste an opportunity to attack labor unions and public education. After all, they have the knowledge and wisdom to define a “true educator” or so they believe. Happy Martin Luther King, Jr. day, when we honor, among other things, the right of every child to get the education she/he deserves. Remember segregation? See a teacher? Thank a teacher! Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock…

  6. The unhinged Left checks in this morning and provides us all
    infinite amusement with his immature and foolish commentary.

  7. If it wasn’t for many of the so-called black leaders in cities like Chicago, every child would get a better education.
    The real racists keep the neighborhoods poor so they have power and influence.
    Those people are bound for hell.

  8. The white privilege institutional machine doing everything possible to uplift blacks and black leaders preventing them from delivering justice and prosperity to predominantly poor black neighborhoods. This racist nonsense is brought to you by no other than this glorious McHenry county sunshine blog. What better way to celebrate Martin Luther King, Jr. day? Got George Wallace? Stay tuned…tic, tock, tic, tock, tic, tock…

  9. More deranged Leftist drivel from our resident RACIST buffoon for our afternoon amusement.
    Tic tock, tic tock, tic tock – MAGA !

  10. People like Jesse Jackson prosper from the status quo.
    It’s not difficult to figure out.

  11. I apologize for wandering from the original very serious and tragic subject.

  12. Leftist like Angel never waste an opportunity to use a serious and sad human condition for their illicit gains. Like most educators with her dogma vs knowledge approach they had A’s in school but D’s in life. Shame but of course she has none. Meanwhile glad to see the CLPD shedding the light on a tragic subject that leaves broken families and hearts.
