I'll bet the Plainfield Police were set up on a radar trap within a mile of that house. Giving speeding tickets is much more important than actually cruising streets to keep us safe.

And exactly HOW are the police supposed to patrol EVERY SINGLE HOUSE in plainfield and stop break-ins from happening?

I do believe there would be a better chance of the police stopping crime if they actually patrolled the streets instead of sitting in their cars behind a tree with their radar guns set on auto-alert to catch a motorist going 8 MPH over the speed limit. I know they can't be everywhere but if they are 'rolling' through the neighborhoods they would have a better chance of seeing something.

Plainfield is terrible for actual patrolling. In our subdivision we are lucky if we see a squad at all. Our subdivision has at least 4 reports of break ins this past 2 weeks

People that say the police are not patrolling neighborhoods, come on....do you look out the window 24 hrs a day to chart when the police drive through. That's a ridiculous comment. Just because there are break ins, do you want te 4-6 officers to stay in ur neighborhood all night? It takes seconds to commit a car burglary

We (Illinois) Need Conceal and Carry NOW ! Police rarely stop a crime in progress its Not their fault , just works out that way. Do not plan on the police to protect your family its just not possible. It is YOUR RESPONSIBILITY! The Courts were correct in that your RIGHT to Protection does not end at your Front door.
