Exactly. Who drives around with a camera pointed at themselves and the drivers window? No one EXCEPT someone who is intent on capturing a policeman being provoked and reacting. This was not some random event. It was staged by the driver with the intent of capturing a negative reaction by the police.
quincymike - Some neighbors not happy with Madonna House - Quincy, IL News - QuincyJournal.com
Madonna House is a great organization and needs to be supported in Quincy! But the issue is the zoning for their operation. Residential zoning is residential, period. Without a special use designation at a minimum for zoning they are not in compliance. Teresa Humes should not have even had to go to the council. Its not a matter of resolution with Madonna House, 7th Ward Aldermen Jack Holtschlag…

I think we need a new word in the English language - "absurd" doesn't adequately describe this spin. Nancy would love these numbers - she would say more people are painting or writing - not wasting their time working to buy food.

Brandon Thomas was found dead early Tuesday morning in Peoria

From pjstar.com:

Peoria police are targeting two South Peoria gangs in the Don’t Shoot campaign after a rash of violence left three men dead and at least one wounded since Friday.

Brandon L. Thomas, 25, of Quincy is the city’s latest homicide victim. Thomas was pronounced dead at the scene shortly before 2:30 a.m. Tuesday after being found behind a house in the 1500 block of Howett Street.

Police Chief Steve Settingsgaard spoke to reporters Tuesday afternoon. He vowed a swift response to the shootings, saying his department would flood the neighborhood where they occurred to put out the growing “brush fire.” And the chief said meetings were planned with other police departments, along with federal and state prosecutors, to determine what the next step would be to combat the violence.

He warned people in the area that they will see more police and could possibly be stopped as officers step up their patrols, but said it was temporary and only to protect the community.
