If you learn to rig elections, azz kiss the right people, get your family into election judge positions, manipulate the citizens, collect workman's comp w/o doing the required drug testing, live off the tax payer dollar, exploit the minority vote while insulting them openly, THEN YOU, my friend, may qualify for undeserved jobs at the St. Corrupt County level! You may qualify for Head of Human Resources (esp. if you know how to cheat people), or even a career in law enforcement (must have no personal scruples about using your office for political intimidation), and then YOU will be leapfrogged to a higher position over more quaified and experienced (and honest) Law Enforcement Officers! Come to Little Cook County in Southern Illinois. We will teach you how to drink the Koolaid!

Good luck to the citizens of St. Clair County with Sheriff Rick Watkins. He was basically ran out of Cahokia and left that department in shambles and he will do the same to our Sheriffs Department. And you can count on him taking 'care' of all his boys at the Sheriffs Department that came from Cahokia. Do believe there is a certain Sgt that will benefit of this, when he doesn't deserve a damn thing, especially the stripes on his sleeve he has now

You all knew this was coming. It was the plan before the election. Ask any Democrat and this was the parties plan..to have Justus resign and appoint Watson. Once again Capt. Johnson got screwed! Hey Johnson, how many times you going to let the Democrats screw you over?

Merle Justice used to be head of the Cahokia Police department and he did a good job back in the day and then moved up the ladder. I have nothing but respect for the man but at the age of 81 he should have retired many years ago.
They should put a cap on retirement age.

The Delaney boy is the one who be the sheriff of St. Clair County. He is devoted to his job and has a lot more experience than Watson. I hope this young man gets the job.

Why is there so much crime in Sauget that spills out into surrounding communities if he is so good? I know folks who sold their businesses and left Cahokia after the bars in his community broke so many laws and pushed so much alcohol to already drunk people that it made things get out of control there and elsewhere. We call him weasel as a term of affection. Bowing to amateur wise guys does not a good sheriff make.
Uh Huh
