Tom, oh the horror... teased and given a bad day... poor things. Lets throw out common sense and useRead More our political power to do what no citizen could do, horseshit.
Dan Cox April 20, 2014 at 05:55 pm
Mayor Ardis, in my opinion you need a swift kick in the ass, for wasting tax payers money for yourRead More own Gestapo Police Action. I have forwarded the Tweet to several hundred people and we want this baby to go viral... so hang that one where the sun don't shine.

Last time I checked, slander and libel were civil cases that didn't involve police raids.

Now that I think of it, I don't think I've ever seen any religious license plates. If its a unifornRead More law I guess its "Fair" but I don't see the point of the rule. There's a guy with "E Party" on his mini cooper at my dads yacht club.

Why doesn't this poor soul or in her case non-soul get the ACLU to fight for her. Those uselessRead More dregs will fight against anything associated with a church. It is true that some church goers sometimes go overboard in espousing their beliefs. I, however cannot think of a church goer taking up a complaint to the Supreme Court like Michael Newdow of Sacramento did. Looks like for you who think that church goers take things to extremes, to me it looks like the Atheists do.

Prove it, you fucking idiots. Kill more arabs in Jerusalem's name like the Crusades. EnslaveRead More millions. Seek ethnic cleansing. You fricking religious retards are the destroyer of the world. All of you. The bible is a fraud, as is every other religion ever concocted. Fucking morons believing this bullshit is ridiculous. Go molest some boys, pecker petters.

I think we need more punishments that include restitution by public embarrassment. Holding a sign onRead More a busy corner seems to get the publics attention.

Its amazing that the republicons are now upset about gerrymandering, but thought it was just fineRead More when they controlled, in fact they perfected it! And Roger? What crack whores? Rauner? Chicago Civic Federation? Chamber of Commerce? GE, Catepillar? The ones that think its just fine to steal as long as you wear a tie?
Jacob Matthews April 20, 2014 at 06:50 pm
The system is flawed and failed. Yes, by all mean bring back days when kids could leave their bikesRead More in the front lawn and run in for a drink. Bring back the days when politicians weren't closing parks because the basketball hoops invited crime. Bring back the days when kids could gather without risk of going to jail. Bring back the days when you could trust the cop on the beat. I pity anyone, mine included, who has the task of raising a child in a world of political injustice and internet bullying. This parents today jump on the band wagon and attack yet their precious little ones are without flaws. Life has yet to come full circle. Beware the evil that dwells within.

Well Kim Johnson,I mean the crack whores with their Obama phones who start having babies out ofRead More wedlock to start the cycle of welfare payments and all the freebies that come with it so they can raise the future gangbangers that make the city what it is today. Are you really that blind that you cant see the truth? I pity you and the people like you

For all the years I've had debit cards, never used them. If you're somewhere where credit cards, aRead More check or cash in your pocket can't be used, you shouldn't be there. Besides, most of you forget about all those last minute withdrawals and Irresponsibility takes over, yet you're still surprised- "what happened my bank account?"- the drunken stupor in the bar, or knee jerk "i gotta have it". Most can't afford those approaches, and the service fees know that
cookiepro2 April 20, 2014 at 01:17 pm
I don't like debit cards either, it is a direct line to one's bank account. What I didn't like wasRead More my bank replacing my ATM card with a dual usage ATM/debit card without asking me...I made them cancel it and give me an ATM functionality card only. Some people don't have credit line established yet (like my college student son) and have no choice but to use a debit card instead of credit card. I take precautions and have it assigned to an isolated checking account, and urge son to monitor it closely (set up email alerts), good training for future financial independence.
Melissa Pinto April 20, 2014 at 08:46 pm
I never use my debit card I'm any store . Cash majority of the time and credit cards and I disagreeRead More no nobody deserves this to happen to them.

This is a really tragic story. It scares me. I work with several young people who put video gamesRead More ahead of their kids. They get the big earned income tax credit checks, buy game consoles, big screen tvs, games up the ying yang. Their kids get yard sale flip flops, wear torn under sized clothes. They give their kids cough syrup to put them to sleep and stay up playing games. I pray no of them would ever do this.

This is not comedy central....either report news or don't. Making fun of police roundup stories isRead More juvenile. We should be glad they are out there protecting us. Grow up PATCH writers.
Jacob Matthews April 20, 2014 at 10:14 am
Patch writers hide behind a keyboard spewing venom for anyone who can read or be read to. They areRead More cowards. Their "stories" are just that. Not a word of truth in any of them. This website is funded by politicians, more often than not written by them as well hiding behind an editors tag. It's propaganda Flo....and you are correct.....it is childish as well as unprofessional.

Deerfield Resident April 20, 2014 at 08:37 pm
The bottom line is Obamas approval rating is dismal and most of those still backing him thinkRead More "making history" and social issues are more important than this Country's fiscal health! Remember ...if you rob Deerfield resident to pay Jason McSweeny's family...you can always count on the McSweeney vote! Moochers generation after generation! interested in making "history" then
Jason McSweeney April 20, 2014 at 08:37 pm
@Deerfield after five consecutive incorrect assumptions you should be banned from this thread.Read More Calling my children losers, single parents moochers, you really sound like a (wo)man scorned! And now bragging about your endless riches- let me guess, you're a "fit" middle-aged caucasian man with a FULL head of hair, twelve Corvettes and super model wife?! And with all your money, power and good looks what do you do?!!!! Sit at home on the most beautiful day of the year, a major holiday, and make derogatory comments about women and children while hiding behind an anonymous name on Tinley Park Patch?! I'm sure you're a real catch lol

David Greenberg April 20, 2014 at 12:39 pm
So what you're saying william is that anyone who comes along and claims "PTSD",Read More "ABUSE", blah, blah blah should get a free pass? Why have laws then? The whole concept of making something a criminal act is that we want to discourage it from happening in the first place, by putting deterrents into effect. One such deterrent is PRISON, another is the Death Penalty. If this person was being abused, she had options BEFORE coming to this point - for whatever reason, she make a decision to kill someone, and a Jury of her peers determined her guilt. So off to jail she goes - hopefully FOREVER.
