Start arresting the drunk drivers, not the people who are harmless!!!!
Ernie Knight August 10, 2012 at 02:27 PM
Plainfield PD is extremely aggressive at arresting drunk drivers. Look at the statistics. Look at the news. As for "the harmless" I'm interested in who that might be, and which laws PPD is supposed to ignore and not enforce.

Are you serious Ashley????? Burglaries, Theft, Domestic Battery and Drug charges are HARMLESS......do you even have a clue??
Erica August 12, 2012 at 04:29 PM
This is at least the second time James Donatelli has appeared in the blotter for a drug crime. Its about time Plainfield puts a little pressure on people like this to move out of town!
Old Lee August 13, 2012 at 07:36 PM
Do you expect the PPD to load up the U-haul truck and move "people like this" out of town? If Donatelli has been arrested twice for drug crimes, I would say the PPD is working on the problem and maybe he will move into the Will County Jail. Of course he will have his day in court.

"people like this"? Really? Don't you have anything else better to do? Guess not...
