My name is Lynn Guevrekian.
Mclean County Illinois
and here:
This is an online Video of Wayne Pelhank of Heartland Apartment Management located in Bloomington Illinois which is Mclean County Illinois After I was injured and damaged at the Normal Public Library in Normal Illinois (also Mclean County Illinois) I did not work and fell behind on my rent. The video shows Wayne Pelhank delivering a 5-day notice style and shows the Bloomington Police who were called as 911 assisting him. My web page is http://ladybugsflyhi.50megs.com Just prior to being injured at the Normal Public Library the Bloomington Illinois Police erred and smashed open my apartment door one afternoon while I was in the shower; instead of saying they were sorry, they chose to create a fake report about the incident and Bloomington police officer Sergeant Wikoff and a 25 year old, newly licensed social worker named Nicole Wilder smeared me in fake records to cover their own errors. I filed three lawsuits covering all three incidents and received justice for none of them. I still have all the evidence. This is a gross miscarriage of justice and reflects a corrupt custom of Mclean County and Bloomington Illinois which was supported by other places in Illinois and also shows the corruption of Illinois . I now live in Springfield Illinois at a homeless shelter as I network help out of and away from Illinois and wish to sue The State of Illinois for miscarriage of justice in the United States Supreme Court because the State of Illinois has shown intentional, malicious willful, wanton reckless disregard for a person, which is the tort-immunity breaker, as all corruption is never protected by tort immunity.

my apartment was broken into 2 days ago and they busted my sliding glass door, and the cops said it was something they couldn't investigate, due to lack of evidence...so I am stuck with the replacement of that stupid door now.

and when I looked out, there was graffiti all over the place, and has been there for over a year, so this is not unusual at all

I would rather they do graffiti than to harass neighbors and shoot people.

libbiehater: It was pretty calm before the transplants. There were a few bad areas, but not like it is now. You could leave your doors unlocked, and feel safe. Not anymore

There was graffiti in the parking garage at the Junction Place apartments. It was on the top level where cars have been getting broken into on a regular basis. I went to take a picture but they painted over it already. I do remember seeing BG a couple of times. I think one BG had a 7 above it. I'm so sick of these idiots, if they really are so tough they would put down the guns and fight like men. But they're obviously not very intelligent people to begin with.

The police department in Bloomington should close after the way they handled the Pelo rape case. Even the Keystone cops would have been able to solve that case with all the info they had.
