As if I needed more reason to not move there, it is a class 1 felony in Illinois to make a recording of a police officer while they are on duty. So much for keeping the police honest with a few youtube videos, which has been popular lately.
Until recently you even couldn’t own a gun to protect yourself in IL, and you still can’t bring it outside of your house. As a result, you have a disarmed population and a police force that can’t be legally monitored. Nothing could possibly go wrong.
