Jail numbers (and income) falling

Here's what the Sheriff and Undersheriff are NOT talking about. Heck, does McHenry County even still have a Sheriff?

Numbers of Federal prisoners and detainees may be falling.

Is it true that the U.S. Marshal's office removed its last eight prisoners from the McHenry County Jail yesterday?

And that the money-making $95/day deal with U.S. Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) is thawing - to the point that there are now fewer than 100 ICE detainees locked up in McHenry County?

You can imagine that the noses of the Feds are out-of-joint after reading that Richard Vanecko paid only $16.00/day for his behind-the-bars "celebrity vacation" that Judge McIntyre ordered.

Wasn't Zinke saying something about upping the ante for the Feds to $115/day? Yeah, sure. $115 x 0? That's not too hard to calculate.

The big question now is what will Zinke, Sedlock and Firman do with all the "special" teams and the high ratio of supervisors in the Jail? What would a responsible management do?

Will they maintain the status quo and leave the message for the new sheriff, when he takes office on December 1?
