Woodstock City Council and Sgt. Amati

On Tuesday night the Woodstock City Council met for its Regular Meeting on the first Tuesday of the month.

Did they get an earful from residents concerned about the administrative handling of the serious actions of Woodstock PD Sgt. Amati?

You'd never know from the (lack of) article(s) in the Northwest Herald. Did a reporter even attend that meeting?

Remember when McHenry County Sheriff's Department Sgt. Greg Pyle was arrested and charged with ten felonies for predatory criminal sexual assault on a child younger than 13? That one was initially, internally, referred to as a "domestic" situation.

"Domestic", as in "just" a family squabble. Yeah, sure. Pyle was arrested on a Complaint from the Illinois State Police. That case, 12CF00020, has been languishing in McHenry County Circuit Court ever since the Feds got involved in August 2012. Pyle is a current resident in the Boone County (Ill.) Jail.

Pyle's next court date in McHenry County is today at 9:00AM. If today's hearing is like so many in the past months on this case, Judge Graham can just reached for his "Continue for 30 Days" rubber stamp.

What Judge Graham ought to do is move this case along. Is McHenry County just waiting to see what the Feds can or will do? Why wait? Is Pyle expected to plead guilty to something in Rockford? Will McHenry County then just shelve this case?

The McHenry County State's Attorney is elected and paid to represent the People of McHenry County. Are we being well served?

Personally, I like Lou Bianchi. However, I don't like how some important cases are being handled.

I spoke. It looks like other people are starting to speak now. For instance, look at the letter that was in the Independent. Also, there is this. http://nwherald.com/2013/12/06/hacker-group-targets-woodstock-officer/a18l1d1/

Yes this situation is being monitored quite closely tho not all of us are "Anonymous" or even Hackers for that matter.. But we refuse to allow injustice like this. Feel free to look up #CharlesAmati hash on twitter. Tho it seems McHenry County Sheriff would rather block people than discuss. Oh and the text messages are just the tip of the iceberg it seems. Have a read http://pastebin.com/J7QFxn2A

If legal justice is not carried out on this pedophile, let's haunt him until he throws himself into prison just to get away.
