Police checkpoints


Youngstown police will conduct checkpoints throughout the city Wednesday, Oct. 26 and 28 specifically checking for motorists who are driving with a suspended license. The checkpoint locations and times will vary.

Injured in shooting


Eric Kilgore Jr., 24, of East Liberty Street, was treated at St. Elizabeth Health Center, Youngstown, after being shot in the neck Saturday morning. He was first taken to Forum Health Northside Medical Center, where officials there called Hubbard police to report the gunshot wound.

Detective James Taafe said Kilgore was treated for a wound caused by a .22-caliber gun. He said the incident is being investigated. Kilgore was unable to tell police where the incident occurred or give any description of his attacker. Kilgore, who is in the Army, is being deployed overseas.

Building break-in


Sometime over a three-week period, a brass shutoff valve was removed from the fire-suppression system of a vacant Delphi Packard Electric building at the corner of Griswold Street and Paige Avenue, flooding the building’s basement.

A Delphi representative reported Friday afternoon that someone broke into the building sometime between Sept. 24 and Friday afternoon through a metal, west-facing door.

Lets see! Two murders and several shooting in the last few months and the police department is going to put their efforts into catching people with no drivers licenses. That's why Youngstown is what it is.

"...the police department is going to put their efforts into catching people with no drivers licenses. That's why Youngstown is what it is."

Uh, it's not just about catching people with no licenses, it's about catching people with suspensions, no insurance, WARRANTS, stolen cars, GUNS,etc. It's a very good idea, even if they get 1 or 2 cockroaches off the streets it's worth it.

Southern Calif uses checkpoints all the time. it is a multi-agency job. Many illegals are caught and turned over to Immigration, those without proper ID, driver licenses, insurance have their cars towed and DUIs are arrested. They have also found many felons with loaded weapons int he car. It is a good attempt to clear the community of some "nasty boys". Go YPD and good luck withthe numbers. In this case more is better.

There is a difference between a racist and a realist. I will let those of you folks that automatically "assume" figure out what the difference is.

censorship pretty much described what a realist sees!

Let’s make sure we print the locations of the check points in the news paper several times prior to them actually taking place so all the "INOCENT" people can avoid them.

Hee hee...it is what it is, kids. Censoredship, you drilled it. There isn't ownership or accountability for the behavior, it's always looking to divert blame by using the race card when the obvious is pointed out. It's tiring and typical...
