  1. The article written by @dennissullivan on August 9, 2011 at 1:19pm about the car accident taking place near Joliet.. well apparently the facts werent given to this writer correctly. The 21 yr old “passenger” was actually thrown from the motorcycle and was severely injured. The 24 yr old driver of the other car.. is actually 21.. the passenger is actually 24. Finally, the car was not oncoming. So how do I know this? Because Dennis Sullivan, I was in that accident. Nothing about i was precautionary.

  2. Excellent piece, @dennissullivan. Great to see our law enforcement people working together to protect our country’s residents. They worked swiftly.

    I was involved for many years with street gang outreach in central Illinois. Vice Lords, Latin Kings mostly. Difficult situations: Lots of young teens manipulated by older thugs. Still, no matter how awful their back story is, crime is crime.

    As far the derisive, uninformed editorial comment by @barbyr (Sally Ride), try Googling “transnational street gangs” as a contiguous phrase. It is the accurate term.
