    Drove by a bit ago as all the cops ambulances and fire trucks were flying into the subdivision I saw 8 in total.. So is there something going on? or not? Now we have the newsfolks and the cops racing to go see nothing? and me reading an article about the same? The news just sucks nowadays, a big hurry to be the first to report nothing..

    Not sure if this is related
    but i am hearing reports of a police shooting of a local man with his kids in the back seat of his car. Resulted from an arguement after an auto accident.

    It was an off duty officer who was called to his sisters house after being beaten up by her husband, Joseph. The officer shot and killed his brother in law I self defense after Joseph rammed his car into the officers

      Since when is shooting an unarmed person , that’s why cops do the training so they know when to use force. If he wasn’t a white guy rosemont would have been burned down by now. Anybody think of what that does to the child to see his dad murdered, easily coulda been shot in the leg or arm and the police called before the shots were fired

    Is this the same joe that worked for tollway that already had a couple of misconduct firings but since he was so mafiosa he was able to sleep on the job. i think the cop did the right thing by protecting his sister from the wife beater
