    With Rockford being one of the most violent cities, why are precious resources spent THIS way? As long as men want sex, there is going to be prostitution. Was this Epperson’s idea? Maybe he does need to go away!!

    ALSO, this is the perfect time to remind the Winnebago County, Illinois community of the concept of JURY NULLIFICATION. That’s right, folks! You can tell the government to go screw itself by voting NOT GUILTY!
