Yesterday I spoke with Lockport Police Chief Dave Draksler about use of my identity. He had an officer investigate Topix and believed that crime had been committed. He forwarded this information on to the Will County States Attorney. He was told that a Grand Jury is meeting on Wednesday. My complaint will be included for review by the Grand Jury. The Grand Jury will subpoena Topix for the IP address of the person who posted in my name.

I hope that Topix cooperates and provides the States Attorney with the IP address. If they get the IP address I will file a lawsuit immediately.
I made a big mistake

Dear Darren,
I owe you an apology. Please forgive me. Is there any way we can work out a solution? I am very sorry for the offence. It was a joke and I meant no harm. Please forgive me. I got too carried away with the politics of this site.
I sincerely regret my actions.
Kind regards,
Annonymous

My two cents: This person needs to be exposed, especially if it was an opposing politician, who should know better, and who should be setting an example for our children -- not acting like one. Do not let this person get away with it, Darren.

Now just be a stand up guy and let everyone know who it is when you find out. Don't let anyone talk you out of your complaint. This person took a horrible situation and used it to try and smear your name. Show the voters you believe in justice and not turning the other cheek because they offered you something or forced you to let it just drop. Thenwe will know we have a credible person who might run for alderman or mayor.

It's 12:48 PM and I just returned from the Police Station. I spoke with Sgt. R. Huff.

My case number is 12-22478.

This case will be part of the Grand Jury on Wednesday. A subpoena from the Will County States Attorney for the IP address will be generated and sent to Topix.

Now it is up to Topix to cooperate. If the Will County States Attorney obtains the IP address of the person who assumed my identity I meet that person in court.

I can assure everyone who reads Topix that should this person be found guilty of using my identity I will post their name on Topix.
great

Darren:
The posts about Jackie Rudd (the daughter of a long-time friend) were so offensive, that I took it upon myself to do some research on the issue. In the event John Connor of the Will County State's Attorney doesn't wish to proceed criminally, there is a cause of action that can be maintained civilly pursuant to Supreme Court Rule 224, whereby you can pursue discovery against Topix to identify the offending poster via their IP Address, etc. If it comes to this, you can follow this path.
Let me know if you need my help.

I think it is important to inform everyone who the IP belongs to not just if he's convicted.

Good. Maybe the eventual subsequent legal events will give some of these perverse knuckleheads a pause before they start assuming identities , hijacking threads and slinging political mud.

Any guesses on who posted these false statements about Deskin?

Thanks Jeff. For those who don't know, Jeff McCarthy he is an attorney who practices in Lockport. I will consult Jeff if I need legal advice.

Jeff, please pass on my condolences to the Rudd family. Let them know that I had nothing to do with those horrible posts.

I am very happy that you have taken this step. Please make sure that this person is made an example of. Beside the fact that this idiot is assuming your identity...he/she is being disrespectful to the family and friends of this beautiful young lady. Thank you, from a concerned citizen of Lockport

You should be ashamed of yourself. Nothing short of a public apology as you exit the stage is in order. What kind of a sick joke do you think this is. People are grieving the tragic loss of their daughter and you typed ... "she got what she deserved." And then attach a man's name to that blog. You are one sick individual.

Do you not read and/or comprehend anything. He did NOT 'type' anything of the sort. You should be ashamed of yourself 'a BIG mistake' for not even reading the very thread you are posting on. Darren Deskin did NOT say anything of the sort , is a victim of a cruel impersonation and has begun legal proceedings to rectify the situation.

Maybe I made the mistake. When you use the term 'you' does that refer to the imposter ? If so, in the context of this thread, you should identify the form of the noun specifically rather than using 'you' under a thread started by the real Darren Deskin'.'You' would mean a response to Mr Deskin not the imposter. If you are referring to the real Mr Deskin using 'you', than refer to my other response. Notice in sentence number two the word 'you' is speaking to the writer 'a BIG mistake'. YOU must be a graduate of Taft.

The following is the response I got from Topix after I requested that the RIP thread be deleted:

Well send the link to the posts that he made up and get them taken down. Should only take a few mins. Glade they even send a reply to you. These web sites that allow people just assume any name they want should change that policy.

Nobody asked for your opinion either but shocker , that's how these forums work and guess what, discourse is good. It's okay to question and have differences. I really don't think I was the only one confused. Maybe I should 'shit' my computer off. It's sooo easy to call me an idiot as an anonymous person on the Internet.

Wow, you are full of BS. No way a case was generated for this and no way will Will Co investigate these claims. You live in a fantasy world, no crime was committed.
