EDGAR CO. (ECWd) -
This one is special, and Edgar County should be proud his performance - LOL...
All I can say is: "Where are the data and documents to support your claims". He cannot produce them because they do not exist.
Heltsley goes on a blinding rant swatting at anything he thinks he can find, and the Prairie Press prints it. How much lower can we get in this county?
I will take my time on this series of articles for a couple of reasons. First, to ensure I have all the documentation to support what I claim, and, second, to make sure this series lasts a few weeks so people do not forget about it anytime soon.
I will start with the easy one:
Heltsley puts "former law enforcement investigator" in the signature of his letter.
I won't call that one an out-right lie, but only that it might not be entirely true.
If you remember back to the "good old days" of the lawless Crippes regime where rapists were told they could "resign with dignity" and the State Police asked to "stop investigating because we handled it internally", and then giving favorable recommendations to unsuspecting future employers, you can understand where I am going with this. Parts: 1, 2, 3, 4, and 5
Think back also to using prisoners to roof the house of a private residence, without a roofing license, without supervision, and without insurance to cover any accidents. (Article and video here)
Now for the "law enforcement investigator" that Heltsey claimed to be.
When stating that claim, I am wondering if he is talking about the illegal letter he received during the lawless Crippes regime that he used to carry a concealed weapon illegally (article here) - the same letter that claimed he was a "covert investigator" LOL (I have to laugh every time I type that out) even though he was never paid to do the job. It is common knowledge that former Sheriff Crippes handed those letters out to his buddies with the sole purpose of violating the law by somehow trying to make it legal for them to carry concealed weapons on them - not thinking about any potential costs to the county if they did something stupid with it.
Hey, I know, maybe it is the job he had with the Illinois Department of Corrections where he was a party in a Federal Civil Rights lawsuit, and then subsequently FIRED from that job. This one is so special because he claimed during a county board meeting that he retired from DOC, just to have to go back later and apologize to the board members for lying to them after we outed him about his employment with DOC, and the fact that he did not retire from there.
Either way, I do not believe the whole truth was told in relation to the "former law enforcement investigator" in his signature block. He should probably clarify that one.
