Looking Back to 1916: Lawlessness Even Back Then, What Is Good for the Goose

From the September 21, 2016, MidWeek "Looking Back."

1916, 100 years ago.

"Mr. Howland of Sycamore made complaint to police that boys entering his lot and chasing his geese.  He described them and 'the gang of young bandits have been committing as many acts of lawlessness during the past months, and they may be taken.'"

**  "DeKalb has a new patrol wagon "Public Safety' conveyance was delivered."

So, we had hooligans even back then.  Guess the new patrol wagon could be used to transport them to jail when caught.
