Lawmaking to follow

EAST ST. LOUIS, Ill. - A 77-year-old Illinois state representative is happy to be alive after a man with a gun pushed his way into her home and robbed her of $7.
Wyvetter H. Younge was not injured in the robbery that occurred around noon Friday.
Younge said she thought her son had knocked on her door and opened it, but instead found an armed man. He told her to get on her hands and knees, then grabbed her purse and ran.
Younge, a Democrat, said she didn't recognize the man, who wore a red hat and red jacket and dark pants. She said she's going to pray for him.
"This robbery and what's happening to this community is the result of a lack of a supportive system for our youth. We need jobs," she said. "This happened in broad daylight at noon. We need a mental health support system. This is further evidence of that."

Maybe Young should move to Trenton for a few weeks then apply for a job as Public
Safety director. Mayor Palmer might be more than willing to allow her to commute back and forth to home at TAXPAYERS expence then claim he needs to cut police ovetime to cover the expenses.
GLAD I moved out of Trenton. It is no longer Trenton Makes, the World Takes. It is more like Santiago takes and Trenton PAYS
