Why? Was they working when they commited the crimes? If so, I agree.

It doesn't matter in this case. They have public sector jobs, I.e. taxpayer funded jobs. They should be removed whether they were on duty or not. It is an embarrassment to the community.

Lol!!

i know Ed well. He's a good guy. They were probably just drunk and messing around. I'm sure they didn't expect to be in this much trouble.

I wonder how they became suspects in the first place......?

Ya a really great guy!! They knew just how much trouble you could get in for this or they are just plain stupid!!! I am sure it didn't take the police long to figure out who to talk to.

They both need to grow up!!! I hope they throw the book at them. Good Lord there is no excuse for something like this! I don't think they helped their side in this election any!

You are an idiot. Just messing around??? So I guess you would have no problems if they vandalized your property. People like you are a joke.

I wonder what kind of punishment Jerry McKechan (former high school principal and who is currently running for re-election to the school board) would have slammed on some kid at the high school for doing something equally destructive and illegal on school property?
Megan Kohler is his daughter and Mark is his nephew.
Would it have been a "zero tolerance", you're out the door kind of punishment?
Same should hold true for these two TOWNSHIP EMPLOYEES! They should be terminated, and the wife of Scott Kohler, Megan McKechan Kohler, who is running for Township Supervisor should be faced with some kind of charges as well.
It just rips me up that for once, that one of the connected families were unable to stop these charges.
Guess what? Everyone once in a while, they are not above the law. Not very often, but once in a while.

Get your facts straight before you run your mouth!!!! Megan is NOT his daughter, she's Marks brother and Jerry's niece. You "know it all" people kill me!

"she's Marks brother"

I really don't care how the family lines run, but I'm pretty sure she isn't his brother.

If it is as you say, then her mother works for the township too, along with her brother, am I right?

And I'll run my mouth to my heart's content, and if you don't like it you can blow it out your azz.

Like I said, even if she's Jerry's niece, what kind of punishment would have bestowed on any other "no name" kid in the district for doing something like this.

He needs to be off the school board and his relatives need to get out of the township. Is that plain enough for you?

"know it all people' really??? they are related and it doesn't really matter how. The point is they did something illegal and low and should be punished no matter what last name they have or who they are related to!
ummmm
