Anti Blackwater bill

The private security , Blackwater, established a training facility in northwestern Illinois' Jo Daviess County. Local citizens, mindful "the loose gun play and casual disregard for human rights documented in connection with Blackwater and other "private security firms" react by forming Clearwater". The group has the immediate aim of forcing out a bad neighbor, but its overall mission is "to preserve the public nature and civilian control" of the military and of the police.

With the active support of Clearwater, Illinois State Representative Julie Hamos (Democrat from Evanston) introduced HB 5700, a bill that regulates such private security firms as Blackwater.[3]
