The only people resenting the police are those who are too ignorant to know what the police actually do.

A few years ago, a van was stopped for the "low-hanging fruit" of having the license plate bulb burned out. It was a routine stop that resulted in the seizure of over 500lbs of marijuana. What you deem as "accidental" is not as random as you think. It's a numbers game, and as much as you want to complain about it (a lot, apparently), it's been proven legal at every level of court system…

I'm not sure what your point was in re-posting the blotter, other than you like to see comments with your name at the top. Seat belt enforcement is just picking low-hanging fruit. Violators are usually tame and compliant and usually pay their fines: hence, easy revenue stream for the gubmint. The fact that they accidentally round up a real criminal once in awhile just helps people ignore away…
migraine_in_qcy - Survey says: GREDF, City of Quincy and Adams County get some answers - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJourn
That's all fine and dandy, but what is GREDF doing to try and improve the business climate in Illinois? Is GREDF openly supporting political candidates that are low-tax and pro-business? Is GREDF lobbying or helping fund lobbyists at the state level to promote pro-business laws? It's great to talk about retention, but when Illinois is doing everything it can to stifle business growth, surveys…

STEP is a waste of taxpayer money. We are spending 7 million or so already to catch all the bad guys. The State of Illinois is broke. It is ridiculous to add another layer of law enforcement on top of what we already have. I intend to tell all my reps. to quit wasting my money on more enforcement. Enough is enough. These petty tickets are just sucking money out of the local economy and causing more…

A quick look at property taxes and home values in Illinois

A quick look at property taxes and home values in Illinois

3 months, 2 weeks ago from Reboot Illinois

Property taxes and home values can vary widely throughout a county, especially in those with large metropolitan areas

From from Reboot Illinois:

The chart below contains average home values for all 102 counties in Illinois along with average property taxes paid countywide. If you are a homeowner, you know this chart has to come with a big caveat. Property taxes and home values can vary widely throughout a county, especially in those with large metropolitan areas. The school district in which you live will be the greatest factor in the amount of property tax you pay.

Despite these asterisks, the chart below gives a good thumbnail sketch of what it costs to live in various parts of a very diverse state.
