Our legal system is setting a terrible precedent by not prosecuting the Shiawassee County commissioners for theft and fraud.

The message is: You can rob the bank, get caught, return the money and all is forgiven, no consequences.

Do we have two legal systems, one for ordinary citizens and one for politicians?

Think of all the people now incarcerated for the same crimes committed by our commissioners. Does this mean if they make restitution, they get out of jail and have their records cleared?

Perhaps the reason the sheriff and prosecutor have not taken any action is the corruption is more widespread.

It’s time for the state of Michigan to step in and investigate all the financial activities in the county.

Agree, agree.

AGREE. County prosecutor Koerner stated that the money grab was ILLEGAL when it was first discovered. WHEN will Koerner bring charges? If no charges are brought then Koerner is just as corrupt as the rest.
