Captured! Baby Jesus Thief


Maya M. Patrykus, 21, at approximately 2:10 a.m. on Dec. 24, 2017 after an officer saw a female walking in the 100 block of N. Main Street, carrying a baby Jesus figurine.
On Sunday, West Bend Police released the following:
An officer attempted to stop and speak to the female. Police said the woman then dropped the figurine and ran. After a short foot pursuit the officer stopped the female. 
The  baby Jesus figurine she was carrying was from the Nativity at Old Settlers Park in downtown West Bend.
There’s something screwed up in a person who would steal a baby Jesus from a nativity on Christmas Eve. In any case, it appears that she is getting an earful at home. This is how you do a “statement from the family:”
The family of Maya Patrykus has issued a statement to
Our daughter, and our family, join in the condemnation of her behavior involving the nativity scene. It is, in a word, reprehensible.

Maya is a junior in the UW system. She has no criminal record.

That she was intoxicated at the time is no excuse.  All we can do now as a family is beg the forgiveness of our community, focus on getting Maya the help she needs, and move forward.

Maya’s statement:

“I sincerely apologize to the community, and specifically to those who put their time and effort into building the nativity scene. I am truly sorry.”

    Would Maya Patrykus be the daughter of attorney Dan Patrykus of the Keberle, Patrykus & Laufenberg law firm?

    “Would Maya Patrykus be the daughter of attorney Dan Patrykus“

    And if she is????

    Alcoholism and UW liberalism combining to yield complete disgust in my book.

    Children do emulate their parents.  Assume for conversation, the parents are well to do lefties and their child is a pampered rich brat from the UW brain washing machine.  While not justification for theft, it would explain why this hypothetical person would assume it was acceptable behavior to defile a nativity.  After all, the authoritarians have lectured we lower level life forms for years about what we should accept – re:men in women’s bathrooms – and lauded our ignorance by pointing out the obvious – he has different plumbing.  As our superiors, their privilege supersedes any stupid laws – re:immigration or theft.

    Surely, I have triggered someone so I might as well make it a good one.  I heard that Al Sharpton once went into an appliance store berating the washing machine salesman because they (the machines) were all racists because they were white. The salesman promptly opened the lid and said yes, but the agitators are black”. Uh oh, I’m going to diversity training classes!

    “Children do emulate their parents.“

    I guess that explains the opioid crisis in Washington county. Easy Peazy. Liberals & UWWC

    I have long railed against the indoctrination of our citizenry by the progressives and elites on both sides of the aisle working to destroy the foundation of our Country and the principles upon which it was founded but it does seem a stretch to blame the opioid crisis on UWWC.

    By elites are you referencing the powerful 1%?

    I will take the question as acceptance of the balance of my opinion.

    Sure, go ahead and believe as you like.

    How much is the downtown association paying to rent the entire park for the season?  Can me and FFRF rent it for the same price next season?
