  1. As I have advised in my previous post regarding gangs targeting Harvard as a recruiting grounds, notice again, none of those arrested are from Harvard.

    So again I’d like to pose the question to those men running for McHenry County Sheriff in 2014;

    “What is your game plan beginning day one in office, to curb this dubious and very serious issue of ‘gang recruitment’ and criminal activity that is taking over the village of Harvard, Illinois.”

    Please let’s not make this into an attack threat, I hope we can get beyond that behavior as well.

    Thank you candidates for your answers.

    Good luck to all.

  2. Mr Bachmann,

    Your supposition is based upon what–that shootings equal gang recruitment?

    I would hazard that position doesn’t apply to the recent shooting murder-suicide that happened in late July?

    Nowhere in this article does it not that any of these three are affiliated with a Street Gang.

    I’m curious as to what information you have that this incident was not only gang related, but indicative of recruitment.

    I’ll be looking forward to your reply,

  3. Respectively, my policy is to not respond to those who choose to hide behind false screen names.

    Thank you.

  4. So, respectively you have nothing…

    I’m not asking you to out your ‘sources’, just wondering how you feel it’s acceptable to make a claim that is :

    1-bordering on being racially charged.

    2-has not been supported by investigating authorities.

    3-makes it seem as though you are either complicit or knowledgeable of illicit and illegal activity.

    Perhaps you’re fine with making such assertions, that’s certainly your prerogative…
