New sign at Sheriff's garage

The McHenry County Sheriff's Garage is sporting new signs at the entrance to its garage facility on Russel Court.

The last time I was by there, it was to photograph the squad car of a deputy who ran off Dean Street early one Monday morning. He reportedly indicated that a deer ran out in front of him, but it appeared to me that the car had just drifted off the road, rather than swerving off.

The crash report was one of the most simplistic I have read. It was basically worthless. It was an excellent example of how NOT to write a Crash Report, because it was impossible to learn anything important about the crash.

While I was there photographing the squad car, I was asked what I was doing, and I explained my reason. The deputy who asked me was polite and accepted my answer.

But now they have claimed the property and marked it with this warning. I wonder what force of law the sign actually has. Can a department of the County actually draw a line in the grass and threaten anyone who crosses it with arrest?

It is County property. It's a parking lot. It is taxpayer-supported. I wonder if the restriction was approved by the County Board.

Questions, questions, questions.... Answers to follow.
