    Isn’t it possible to give the facts in simple English? What does this mean? “… when members of the McHenry County Sheriff’s Office responded to the 4300 Block of Doty Road in unincorporated Woodstock, for an unwanted subject, according to the release” Were the “members” police officers? What is an “unwanted subject”? What caused the police to be at that residence at that time?
