Kevin Micheal Dufauchard sent us the following. He said he was at the YMCA in Rockford, when he encountered a disorderly female. Police were called and she was arrested according to Kevin.

I don’t know how to even begin this post. Just had a traumatic experience that left me in disbelief.
I was walking into my local YMCA (which turned out to be closed) when an older white woman sitting at a table near the entrance spoke to me. In a very nasty, devilish voice she said “You’re out of your territory.”
Her: “You heard me you F****** N*****, get out of here N*****”
*Proceeds to say more racist things towards me*
This woman was screaming these things, to the point where people walking a trail nearby (about 100 yards away) were able to hear these things. Some of them, also white, came to my defense and exchanged words with this old hag of a woman.
The lady ended up yelling at these people (again from 100 yds away) and calling them N***** lovers.
Some people who witnessed the event also called the police, others recorded. I waited for them to arrive and address the situation. The lady was still sitting at the table when they pulled up, got the details of what happened, and eventually arrested the lady (trespassing, disorderly conduct)
You hear these stories all around, but let me tell you it’s still very unreal when it happens to you. I don’t understand why racism is still an issue in this country.
Now if this woman was bold enough to do this on a Sunday afternoon in broad daylight, it makes me wonder how many people are thinking this way. Also makes me wonder how often does this happen.
Not everyone is as composed as me and would have handled the situation the same as I did. This lady likely suffered from some mental health issues and was unstable but that cannot excuse the racism and bigotry shown to me.
Despite this traumatic and disheartening verbal assault that I endured today, instead of bottling this experience I felt it was important to share this all with you. Racism in America still exists and is brutally alive in the hearts of many citizens.
Please be conscious of your surroundings, these people are still around. There is no doubt in my mind that she would have loved to see me harmed. Be careful and be safe.”
We have had several people reporting some local businesses have been stealing peoples debit/credit cards and using them illegally to purchase items. We can not confirm this, but several people have contacted us and said they have been victims. To put a long story short: If you have to hand over your card, then do NOT use it. Pay cash. If you are a victim, then call police right away. Below is from one alleged victim, there have been numerous reports of it not only happening at the local Mcdonalds, but several other area businesses as well.
Editors Note: We highly recommend investing into a dash camera! Dash cameras always show exactly what happens in an incident. Many people lie and deny stuff when they are involved in an incident, but then a camera shows exactly what happens. Always 3 sides to a story: Theirs, Yours, And A Camera! A camera never lies 😉

“Cammer turning left onto Elevator rd in Roscoe You’ll see car in front of cammer, will have the right of way to turn once cross traffic clears.
The silver SUV across the street will turn left after
Cammer is next to turn left after the silver SUV makes their left hand turn.
Behind that silver SUV is a white SUV ( the guy who doesn’t understand the rules of the road ) It was the cammers turn to go into traffic and the white SUV piggy backed a turn, leaving cammers car out into cross traffic.”
