    As a resident of mcleansboro, I commend the police and courts alike. Very excited to see the issue of methamphetamine being tackled. I hope they use these individuals as an example. As for Hammond, you’ll be lucky if the feds don’t take the case. Mcmahon, go ahead and sign that two year probation affidavit. Take accountability. There’s no honor amongst thieves. Get out of the streets. Life an honest life and work an honest day’s work. Get the dope off these streets. Our children will suffer from the pain that’s passed through generations via methamphetamine use. Former addict myself. Shout-out to Justin hood, Brittany baugher, and Chase partian. Good group of folks right there!
