Re: Petition to prosecute Perdock

As I recall, the Lake County DA let the Statute of Limitations lapse on this, effectively making Perdock immune from prosecution (i.e., the "old boy" network protected its own; business as usual in Lake County). Unfortunately, this means that no matter how many folks sign this petition Perdock will never be charged for Ms. Thornton's death. I don't like it any more than anyone else, but that's the way it is.

Never forget them. Do something to prevent it from happening again.
