Green Bay, WI — A coordinated effort to net child predators on-line was conduced this past weekend involving nineteen local, federal, and state law enforcement agenices in Northeast Wisconsin.  The net brought in a haul of twenty-four predators, which isn’t a bad catch.  Capt. Jeff Sandborn of the Brown County Sherrif’s office stated that this number being so high from their last operation is concerning to authorities.  In 2012, their last operation like this only brought in five people.  “That was substantial.  We thought we cut the head off the snake right there”, Sandborn said, unaware of how much he’s revealing about himself in that statement. The article notes that 84 arrests of this sort have gone down since the year “20-12”, which makes me think the author juxtaposed a year and a football score together, and the error managed to make it past the editing process.

Mt. Sterling, Illinois Some who’ve read this site over the past year may think I’ve got some kind of hard-on for Central Illinois police departments. While I understand the conclusion one would draw, I’m going to make it perfectly clear I adore the men and women in brown who actually work for the State, but as it’s turning out, those who wear blue are lacking training, resources, and basic common sense which ultimately ends in more victims than need-be. Small town departments are full with eager-minded individuals who don’t seem to possess any skills other than being able to write a traffic citation and who suffer from an over-abundance of ego. Small town departments need to use their ready-made resources (town gossip knowledge) to guide them in the right direction. Big cities’ departments don’t have that luxury. They actually have to find the pieces of the puzzle before they can attempt to put the shit together. Small town? The pieces are easily found. Let me give you an example:  Mt. Sterling, Illinois, population around 2,000, several suspicious fires, rumors of one person being present prior to the fires starting. One large house fire takes hold around 3:30am – so hot it melts the neighbor’s siding. One person dead. It takes 6 months for a coroner’s inquest to rule the death a homicide. 6 months of crucial time that could have been spent torturing interrogating, tailing, and arresting the person(s) for murder. In a small town, how is it that everyone knows but the ones who are actually responsible for making an arrest? Why is it coming up on three years that Kathy Blentlinger was killed and there’s been nothing more than lip-service? (more…)
