“It’s kind of disheartening,” the sheriff said.
“A lot of good police work went into arresting those people who were intent on damaging businesses in our community and stealing from them,” said Sandage.
McLean County Sheriff Jon Sandage is lashing out at Black Lives Matter for posting bond for suspects arrested for looting.
The sheriff said he would have preferred to see them donate money to the Boys & Girls Club.
One of the local leaders of Black Lives Matter, Ky Ajayi, said the sheriff should offer to donate the money he earns from charging fees for inmates making phone calls.
Ajayi noted the sheriff didn’t mention the freed inmates are presumed innocent because they have yet to stand trial.
“He’s already tried and convicted them.”
