    Thursday night
    warning for dare I say, White folks.
    leaving the fair with family at end of the night.
    phone shoved in my face and told I am going to knock you out.
    gang of 7 telling dude with phone to knock him out.
    this came out of no where. harnessed and threatened all the way to the 11th st gate. gets better arrive at the 11st gate, gang still videoing. I tap a ISP on the shoulder and tell him about whats going on. Trooper tells me to keep moving, just leave them alone! i try to explain that they are in my face threatening me. Trooper tells me to keep moving, go another way. I tell him they are going the same way I need to go to get to my car. trooper tells me to get out. Turns out these thugs are parked in same area I am. have to listen to this crap some more. call 911. do you want to speak with an officer?
    just send them…….. Gang gets in a car an leaves.
    Moral of the story, if this can happen to me and my family Watch out.
    No help from anyone, sad situation going on there. What is the ISP job function ?
