This happened  in the mall parking lot on Tuesday, August 30 at 5:30 pm in Joliet Illinois. So you can verify. Apparently  the dea set up a sting in a crowded mall parking lot during the busiest  time period and day of the week. My husband was working  at Carsons at the time. The lot serves the mall as well as the movie theater.  Tuesday is  $5.00 all day ticket day with several kids movies showing. Stores were having  Labor day and back to school sales. Workers were starting and ending shifts. The set up ended badly with at least 20 rounds fired. A suspect  was shot in the leg. 2 litres of cocaine  recovered, numerous windows doors and tires shot out in the surrounding area.  People interviewed were furious at the amount of damage, and the potential for  human damage. Who does that? Who arranges a sting to go down in a busy lot potentially  filled with families. 

Sign me angry nurse.

  1. I really don’t think anyone can tell them what to do. They do what they want to people. Maybe we should pay closer attention to who we vote for. No one is looking out for us . With these people we voted in they won’t be for you.

  2. This just proves that the DEA and other law enforcement agencies don’t really give a SHIT who they hurt in the process of their KGB tactics. I’m willing to bet that all enforcement officer identities are hidden from the public as well. Immediate less suits should be filed by all innocent victims. This harsh treatment and public endangerment needs to stop. We are not a military state or a dictatorship so it’s time to stop treating the American public like we are one.
