I am sure there are two sides to this story. Most choose to not speak English or they pretend not to. America, USA, speaking English would resolve much of this problem. I have dealt with many of the police officers in Carpentersville, for many issues. Most if not all were very helpful and very easy to deal with. There are always too sides to the story.. suing is just another way for certain people to make a fast buck. Only people who really know what happened are the officers involved, and the arrested party. If English was spoken to communicate, there should have been no problem.

I have to say this. My mother always tell all natioanlities who don't speak English but only their native languages. She told them to learn English in U.S.A. in case of problems. At home we are allows to speak our native languages. Do like my mother & dad did? She even told her nephews and nieces to learn English just to get along.

Seem like people around here Don't Want to along with others.
