2 workers are charged in Peotone airport case

There are 4 comments on the Chicago Tribune story from Mar 27, 2007, titled 2 workers are charged in Peotone airport case. In it, Chicago Tribune reports that:

“We've spoken to Hanson about this matter, and we've asked them to assign different personnel to work for IDOT pending the outcome”

Residents near the proposed site of a major airport near Peotone praised a decision Monday to file misdemeanor criminal damage and trespassing charges against a father and son working for the state to acquire and manage property in the area.

'Thank you, God,' said Mark Baugh, whose property was scarred late last year by heavy equipment on its way to demolish homes, when he was told of the charges against Rocquin Van Guilder, 62, and his son, Rocquin L. Van Guilder, 34, both of Lowell, Ind.

The elder Van Guilder, who goes by Roc, is a project manager for Hanson Professional Services Inc., the firm hired by the Illinois Department of Transportation to oversee airport land buys and maintenance. His son, who goes by Lee, works alongside his father, authorities said. Read more

Good. For decades this pair has been nothing but a reviled duo for their antics. Not to mention a lack of human decency.

This is BS. The driver wasn't charged! He is the one who trespassed after being told NOT to cross the property by the VanGuilder's! He is the one who should be charged! Totally wrong people being targeted and Hanson's treatment of them after all of the years they put into the company!!!
