An updated (6:31PM) article in the Northwest Herald about a Woodstock man's death early this morning reported that the Major Investigation Assistance Team (M.I.A.T.) was "called in to help." Help with what? Passing out handwarmers?
For crying out loud. A 70-year-old man falls down outside on the property where he lives, and M.I.A.T. is called?
Let's see, when else was M.I.A.T. called out in McHenry County?
When Kurt Milliman was fatally shot in May 2011, was M.I.A.T. called out by the McHenry County Sheriff's Department?
When Jack and Audrey Feldkamp and Doran Bloom were killed near Marengo in June 2011, was M.I.A.T. called out?
When Bobby Delisi was found dead on the railroad tracks near the Woodstock Police station in September 2011, was M.I.A.T. called out?
When Beth Bentley vanished in May 2010, was M.I.A.T. called out?
No, no, no and no. But when an elderly falls and is found dead with no suspicious circumstances, then M.I.A.T. gets called out.
Anybody else think there is something wrong with this picture?
The re-write of the article eliminated the mention of you-know-who from the sheriff's department.
