Apparently you are just trying to get a rise out of people! Looking for some excitement perhaps! I find it hard to believe that you can look at these DUI's and say it is about money, not saving lives!

Hmmm, why do cops focus on traffic enforcement in Kendall County? How many homicides have their been in Kendall County in the last five years? 2 or 3 by my count. How many traffic fatalities over the same time? I'm conservatively guessing 50-60. Heck, sometimes 3 or 4 people die in one wreck. So, I guess the police know more about the dangers facing the public than Oswego Resident. What a shock. Oh, and before anyone starts ranting about catching murderers, there hasn't been a murder in Kendall County for 20 years that the police haven't caught and jailed the offender.

I'm sure Oswego Resident would be upset with the police for not enforcing DUI more if his mother (or other loved one) was killed by a drunk driver. It's sad that he would actually think that police shouldn't even worry about drunk drivers when people are killed by them everyday in this country

Oswego resident, you say that until someone you love gets killed by a drunk driver. Then you'll be PO'd that there wasn't a cop there to stop it. You have an incredibly small mind, lack significantly in the intelligence department, and I would guess your past probably involves a DUI or two... Only someone who makes a habit of driving drunk would make such a stupid comment. I say great job to the local cops, keep up the good work.
