    Cool story. Might want to point out that it is in Winnebago County, Illinois -- not Winnebago County, WI

    Oh yeah..... 15 minute response time from the police. That's a long time to have to hold someone at gunpoint, or dogpoint.

    My bad. I knew that the reporting station reports on both IL and WI news. I guess I just think in WI mode. My bad.

    No biggie. I thought it would be good to clarify to location so we know what laws were in effect. I love the story regardless of location.

    I'm just surprised that the woman with the shotgun wasn't arrested in Ill.

    This man just missed all his friends is all, did she really need to sick threaten him with the dog? It's hard for some people to get back into a place where they can have free medical, meals, clothes, roof, cable, etc. so they take drastic measures to get back home.

    Exclamation 15 Minutes For The Police To Arrive. Good Response Time!

    Hey, that is shorter than the Kenosha police took to get to my house a few years back: 22 minutes. Oh, and the "Man with the shotgun was almost arrested". That man was me. Unless there is a body on the floor I do not call the police anymore.
