* DuPage Policy Journal…
If you live in Reid McCollum’s neighborhood you’ll want to keep an eye over your shoulder.
The 37-year-old Democratic activist has a habit of taking photos from his house Bodin Street home overlooking Dietz Park in Hinsdale.
McCollum has taken to snapping photos of children in the park, sometimes those in early grade school, and posting them to Facebook asking for his followers to shame the children and their parents publicly for not wearing masks and playing outside.
“Dietz Park right now,” Reid said in a recent Facebook post. “This is almost every day. If you know their parents shame them.”
Reid has also been posting the photos to Twitter.
Not cool. At all. Creepy, even. Yuck.
* Jeanne Ives followed up with a Facebook video. Here’s the intro…
One of Sean Casten’s operatives recently took photos of other people’s kids playing in a Hinsdale park and posted them to Twitter, saying “If you know their parents, shame them.” Reveille is a wake up call, but the attitudes of Casten’s Crew are truly alarming.
From the Ives video…
Who puts innocent pictures of children playing on their Facebook and says, ‘I’m going to shame you’? That is terrible.
I actually agree with her. However, there’s just one little thing.
* Prairie State Wire is a publication owned by the same folks who own the DuPage Policy Journal. And you may recall this recent PSW story…
While Gov. J.B. Pritzker has used his executive authority to cancel high school sports for kids across the state this fall, apparently this rule does not apply to his daughter.
Parents have been rallying across the state and at the state capital in an attempt to have the football season reinstated.
Meanwhile, Pritzker’s 18-year-old daughter, Theodora “Teddi” Pritzker, who formerly attended Francis W. Parker in Chicago, has continued to engage in equestrian sports across the country since the state was locked down, including in Illinois.
Teddi is the only daughter of Illinois’ billionaire first family. She jumps horses competitively in the Medium Junior division with Team Welles and is featured on the team’s website.
The story includes photos of the governor’s kid.
* One of those photos was used in a recent Ives tweet about that story…
She should take her own advice.
