Nothing yet on the arrest of the homeowner?

Waukegan, IL is not located in Crooked County, IL, but in Lake County, IL. So, Kim Foxx in Crooked County cannot file charges. Although, Governor Jabba the Hut may try.

More details: https://abc7chicago.com/waukegan-news-s ... d/6506524/

Per aunt of one of the residents, two guys dressed as gas company employees "or something similar" started kicking the front door of the house. Niece opened the door a bit to see who was there, men forced their way in, niece screamed for help. Male room mate came up with a gun, at least one of the intruders was armed, gunfight, both intruders ended up on front lawn dead.

Glad the residents were not hurt. Thankfully the male was armed and proficient. This could have ended up badly.
And the added benefit is that two more democratic voters are out of the gene pool. Hopefully they did not manage to reproduce.

WHY would you open a door when some one is kicking it ??????? Call 911 and prepare to defend.
