Thugs on the other side of the bars

What make these guys so special?

The last guy must be a new hire. All of the above came from openthebooks.com

My sources tell me these 5 came to Lexington looking for a fight. They even assaulted an elderly veteran who tried to stop the them.

The State of Illinois should have highly paid job openings! Of course this is Illinois.

FYI, I stole the title to this story from an unnamed source!

The Edgar County Watchdogs will be expanding this story. Stay tuned. How did the local media miss this?

  1. I would bet their Union makes this fight “go away”

    Take a look at this story of a fight between State workers, (America Evans who is an Office Supervisor making $360,000 per year) – this fight happened on the job. Looks like the Union made this go away and the IL tax payers get to pay her for all of her back pay and benefits – and she keeps her job as Office Supervisor for $360,000 per year. Must be a really big office?

  2. Careful reading of this article reveals that the State worker in question doesn’t make $360,000/year. She was awarded those funds as part of a successful union arbitration (upheld by the courts). The funds were for back pay and were given to the State worker for a few years of not working for the State as her grievances (for being terminated) worked their way through arbitration and then court hearings.

    1. Ok, but it’s still a really nice chunk of money, the type “special people” like state workers get, not so much the regular serfs. As to the corrections officers, yes I am fully aware of the hazards of their occupation, their salaries are still a little on the high side, and part of the reason their job is so dangerous at times is because of the way prisons are run, but I’m not getting into that here. there are good and bad people in pretty much any line of work, none are ALL angels, nor are all devils. I agree this will be kept on the down low as much as possible.

    2. @READING IS FUNDAMENTAL
      I agree that the $360,000 was awarded for her back wages & benefits – but I don’t see anywhere stating that America Evans was terminated. Everything I am seeing online states she is currently an employee of the State of Illinois and in her same position of Office Supervisor. Her 2019 salary was published as $335,700 – it is possible that with her salary increases she may/may now make over $360,000?

      I wonder if the difference of $24,300 is insignificant when you make $335,700 per year?
