I guess some people really do need more than a prison term for their crimes.
First lets talk about Belleville, Illinois police hero, sergeant, John Brough, 48. Brough was doing a follow-up investigation on a cruel double murder of an elderly couple. The suspect who later killed himself shot Brough in the face. Brough was permanently blinded. The community rallied behind their felled protector taking up collections to help Brough and his family deal with the life changing injuries.
Now lets talk about a convicted felon, cop hater and general slug, Richard Hedger II. Hedger just earned himself a 2 ½ year prison term after pleading guilty in connection getting caught stealing a $5 bill from a donation jar at the local Community Kindness Resale Shoppe. Hedger has an extensive criminal record that includes spitting on another Belleville Illinois cop.
I don’t dare record my personal thoughts about what additional punishment this miscreant really deserves. I’d have to call in an expert like Idi Amin for assistance on this one.
