Fellow citizens of Pulaski County, the following declaration is both a promise and a pledge to ourselves and our fellow citizens. Regardless if you support Gene Adams, Tony Neely, Lloyd Bosecker, or Dean Hamilton, this declaration is for you! The declaration reads as follows,

As a citizen of Pulaski County I shall:

DEMAND honesty in our elected Sheriff

DEMAND that our elected Sheriff is moral and just

DEMAND intergrity in our elected Sheriff

DEMAND the elected Sheriff treats ALL people as human beings, understanding they deserve respect

DEMAND that our elected Sheriff treats women and minorities as equals

This simple but powerful five point pledge will ensure that our NEW Sheriff, meets the standards that we expect. Please join me in endorsing this pledge by simply answering "yes" and keep this thread going by showing the pledge to your friends and family. Thank You.

Looks like we have a double standard here. We should persecute Kern any chance we get because he has been accused of things. Leave Hamilton alone no matter what he does because Hamilton is a good guy. To advertise yourself as an investigator and not be licensed in the state of Illinois is a violation of the law. Whether having a sign on the back of a county owed vehicle that says the Sheriffs name, might in some cases be a violation of the law. We have laws for all to obey not just for certain people. So if a complaint is filed in one case, it should be filed in the other. Let the Attorney General decide what is a violation and what is not.

well i didnt really read anything like that in the pledge, in fact 'kern' was never mentioned. the words 'persecute' and 'double standard' were not mentioned either. 'license' or questions related to weren't mentioned either. i dunno what to say, guess we read different things.

We recently had a "prison break" from the privately owned (for profit) jail in Ullin.
When federal prisoners escape from a private prison, who is responsible? If the death penalty is brought back to Illinois, will the "death house" be ran by a private individual as well, for profit? How does one get a job with one of these private prisons as executioner? If person (A) abducts person (B) and holds person (B) in some undisclosed location against his or her will, person (A) is considered a kidnapper and a monster. If person (A) ties person (B) to a post in some abandoned barn or house for example and methodically kills that person, then person (A) is considered a cold blooded murderer, regardless of person (A)s reasoning or justifications.
On the other hand, if person (A) were to become an employee of a privately ran prison company or death house where he can kill or hold person (B) prisoner, then person (A) is considered to be gainfully and respectfully employed and is rewarded with a regular paycheck and benefits. Hmmmmmmmm.
What does this have to do with a "pledge" from a political candidate? Everything and Nothing.

What has this to do with a Pledge????? The Jail is under the Sheriff of that county. The sheriff is still the warden of the jail set by state Law.

the pledge was posted on december 13th, long before the escape. the pledge was not written to place blame for the escape. the pledge was written to support values believed to be important for the next sheriff, regardless of which party they belonged to. candidates beliefs on the tri-county jail is a topic for a different thread

Maybe it was this; anybody can see that the poster was sending a disguised message to bolster their previous and ongoing accusations against a certain honest sherrif. Since when does any particular Pulaski citizen make up their own "sherrif's pledges" and it not be recognized as self-serving?

I don't see any accusations against anyone in the pledge.

I was just wondering, can one of us other Pulaski citizens write a commissioner's pledge and endorse it and show it to our friends and family? We could call it "The other" pledge.

Hmmm, somehow I didn't take you for a teabagger, uh I mean republican, Froggy. Isn't that what the 'baggers do? Take an idea, usually a stupid idea, then make it even more stupid?:D

I guess that Morals and Respecet has been lost and don't count anymore. When we do away with these we have lost all meaning to the way of life. People that do away with these are the ones that have no respect to life and laws.

Republicans have used and abused the concept of respect, morality, life, laws and even religion for their own gains. They have bastardized it to the point where it counts for nothing. Those republicans who still try to use it in their political arguments are viewed with contempt and disgust for doing so by the very people they are attempting to win over. The only people they are able to convince with that worn out BS are themselves.
