Thanks for the memories

Every week I receive phone calls, emails and letters that call my attention to problems at the McHenry County Sheriff's Department. Thanks to each of you for communicating them to me.

I shred the letters and envelopes and I delete the emails and empty the trash, and I also keep my Address Book and Sent file clean of those addresses. I won't be able to write back to you in the future, but I'll post requests here.

The most recent request was for me to keep my eyes open in a particular direction and then communicate my findings to those who can make a difference; i.e., do something about the problems.

Since the Sheriff of a County is an elected official, other elected officials have little control over his actions. Take, for example, the $600,000 wasted on his fight against Zane Seipler. Those with the power to do something about it failed at the last election; 53,000 of them failed. 

I understand the risk to those who contact me. You should not have to fear for your jobs and your benefits. Maybe that will change..... Let's hope.

I ain't afraid of contacting you... if the cops toss me in the Graybar Hotel, well, I think of it this way:
> 3 squares a day.
> TV.
> comfier bed than the backseat of my rustbucket.
> jailhouse mash
> higher quality of drug than what ya can get on the streetcorner!
