To the Editor:
I am very confused. In the April 18 Northwest Herald, there was a photo of McHenry County State's Attorney Patrick Kenneally speaking about the opioid crisis, and on page 2 of the same paper, there is an article about a McHenry County judge giving a man who stole 1,800 hydrocodone pills from a Walgreen's store in Woodstock probation.
These two things appear to counter each other. I, for one, am sick and tired that judges give thieves and people arrested in connection driving under the influence probation and supervision instead of jail time.
There are signs as you enter McHenry County that say we arrest drunken drivers. There should be a second sign under them that reads "but the judges let them out on probation or supervision."
In the immortal words of Michael Flynn (kind of), "Lock them up."
