It's a time machine! Those young men went foreword in time, got drunk at Ale Fest, went back toRead More early that morning and drove off the road.......................................

By "try hard", I really meant, "was exceptionally grossly negligent." Yeah,Read More it's a tragedy. That doesn't make the driver less responsible for the result. I am trying hard to figure out how one could unintentionally steer a car into that quarry. Took some doing.

And do 21 year olds even like ale?

Let them kill each other? What about the one's who don't die and need millions in healthcare for theRead More rest of their life? Who pays for that? All of us! Stop the violence and ignorance!

Do they believe bad kids are being Bused into the City of Chicago to shoot people??? Parents where are you kids right now, where are they at night? Watch your KIDS it's up to you to teach them right from wrong NOT the police!

Stop the revolving door of justice(nonjustice!)!! Once they are involved in a crime involving a gun,Read More they should be sentenced to Hard Labor.. That's right, just like the Old Days!! No more of this crap where they lay around and get free room and board! Put them out in chain gangs and let them work! Screw the bleeding hearts who want to be nice to felons! Most of these people are hardened criminals..once again, if you do the crime, you do the time..But, now make it Hard Time that may sway them to straighten up!!

Resurrectum must you always be a irritating, ignorant, insignificant, little hemorrhoid?

This is not the first Grandma Sally's to burn down. One on Roosevelt Road met the same fate a fewRead More years back. Hmmmmm

I graduated from High School in Naperville. I can't really say whether the town is now less safe,Read More 40 years later. A helluva lot bigger, though. I would still much rather live here than in Chicago, having lived in both places. It's up to the citizens to keep this place worth living in.
just my opinion July 18, 2014 at 06:09 pm
Your right on JaB....this should be the fault of the instructor. Back in 1979 I had divers ed andRead More they had the secondary brake....I will say this...even back in the day..the second time I ever drove a car they took me on the expressway! Scared the hell out of me! In my opinion that is putting all lives involved at risk.
Anne July 18, 2014 at 06:24 pm
Our society is addicted to lawsuits.
Melanie July 20, 2014 at 01:27 am
Absolutely awful to sue the student! She was learning how to drive with a driver education teacherRead More who should have been doing their job to prevent her from making this disastrous error! I feel really sad for her also... and I agree, she and her parents should sue the instructor for allowing this to happen!

ATTENTION PATCH EDITOR ET AL.... This fellow Louis Fasullo needs to be reported to localRead More authorities. His comment is not only highly confused...but also borders on a confession of sorts. Check into his ISP address...and contact appropriate persons.
sophia July 18, 2014 at 08:19 pm
jesse's lips look like he enjoys servicing men in prison!

Dale: Silly boy, the title of the article merely states the fact that the accused attended a bibleRead More college in Indiana. Nothing about his religion; if any. Only attendance. Do try to be attentive, before you,(again), post falsely.
zenia July 15, 2014 at 11:16 pm
What a dummy...if I was the girl I would NEVER speak to him again, ever...he could easily haveRead More gotten her arrested & charged b/c she innocently revealed details about her job duties...trust is something a relationship is supposed to be built upon & not using that trusted information to commit an illegal act.

@JonAzavedo: I was trying to demonstrate compassion, and dignity. Obviously two traits you don'tRead More possess.
Jon Azavedo July 16, 2014 at 07:24 pm
Prediction three-DJP also posses the traits of naivety and ignorance. Compassion and dignity for aRead More killer, a cheater or simply the dead?

New from the Beacon: "Hallock granted temporary permission for extended media coverage ofRead More Shadwick’s appearance after a request was made by a local media outlet to have a photographer at the hearing. King’s defense objected to Hallock’s decision." OOOOOOOOOHH,,,,extended media coverage......and the games begin.........

Gerard, my father has been dead for almost 20 years and before he died he told me he was very proudRead More of me so once again you lose. Face it Gerard, you are outclassed and overmatched in every battle you attempt. Also, I don't cry, whine or pout, I leave that up to you as those are the only things you actually get right.
JR July 10, 2014 at 12:31 pm
They haven't told us anything. What were they cooking? What charcoal brand? They haven't given meRead More all the information I want. I believe there is a conspiracy. I want more. This is all about what I want - you can be a lemming if you think there isn't a cover up.
Gerard Schilling July 10, 2014 at 01:59 pm
Now your just being foolish and it reflects poorly on your maturity or lack thereof.
JR July 10, 2014 at 02:38 pm
This thread should be like looking in a mirror for you. My guess is that you just don't realizeRead More that this is the way everyone sees you.

As is usually the case the bureaucracy expands to support the agency and not the primary function.Read More Here is the listing of civilians employed by NPD and what they supposedly do.

Note also the top heavy organizational structure across the whole department.
