Yet another case of these young 63-year-old whippersnappers driving like maniacs, just to impressRead More the other youngsters in their street gangs. What are Skokie and Evanston coming to, with all of this crime and violence? We'd best abolish rental properties and make sure everyone else is armed to the teeth, or these incidents will keep happening!

That driver passed me on Main so erratically (and with the smashed in windshield)that I immediatelyRead More called in to 911 and stayed with the dispatcher as the driver crossed into the opposite lane, ran stop at Asbury and red lights at Dodge and McCormick where an unmarked police car pulled in right behind her, closely followed by two Evanston police cars. Thank God more people were not hurt!! I do not recall seeing anything that could have caused that major dent in the driver side door but from the manner and speed that that car was being driven-it's not surprising.

This "hotel" is shady and rents rooms to anyone. There have been other incidents at thisRead More place. The hotel is very rundown and should be shutdown. Not the kind of business Skokie needs.

@ knee jerk. Although the upper limit IQ for officers is 105, the target IQ is between 94-98. TheRead More average IQ of a U.S. citizen is 100. Whenever you are speaking to a police officer, you are most likely speaking to someone with an IQ considerably Lower than your own. Please remember to speak slowly, always try to limit the amount of syllables in each word to less than three, and try not to laugh... Cuz They get Really Paranoid. Must be the drugs.

Does anything happen in Darien anymore?! I never see any articles about anything happening inRead More Darien, the Lion's Club pancake breakfast, the armed robberies at the gas stations, the 75th St. construction, city council budget, anything Darien related! How can you call this the Darien Patch when there is nothing about Darien in. Every other town or city has a Patch site that has articles related to their town. We get lazy editors who just copy and paste from other news sites.
Kelly O' March 30, 2014 at 06:17 pm
You don't have a lot of crime in Darien. Thank your lucky stars.

@Bambi: OMGPD is a feature that recounts some of the more unusual crime stories in the Chicago-areaRead More suburbs.

Actually, today (April 4th) she WAS fired. However, I find it a great example of ridiculous unionRead More rules that it took them this long to do so.
Tom RS. April 5, 2014 at 09:13 am
She will have cost all us taxpayers a lot of money when this is all done. Millions in lawsuits andRead More probably a million plus in repairs to the system. I could be wrong, but maybe a little more training and evaluation needs to be implemented before someone is turned loose at the controls...

Arthur....the complaint about unions is that they defend employees such as her....she should haveRead More been fired the first time! She has people's lives in her hands....unions make it impossible to weed out bad employees...
Arthur Huff March 27, 2014 at 09:51 am
Deerfield, if it comes out that the union had a role in what happened in February being handled theRead More way it was then I'm right there with you. But we don't know that yet. All we know now is that the CTA handled it that way, we don't know why. For what it's worth, and I'm just pointing out facts for the sake of the discussion, in this crash and the one in New York it was a union official who told the press that the operator dozed off. Doesn't sound like they were trying to protect either of them, does it? In both of these cases they could just give us the standard "we are still trying to determine the cause blah blah blah" but in both cases they admitted right away that the driver was totally at fault. I'm not saying unions are perfect and don't obstruct weeding out bad employees, i.e teachers and tenure, but in this case we have no indication YET that it played a role.
Sue1 March 28, 2014 at 10:25 am
It would be interesting to get a copy of their contract. I would bet they have some sort ofRead More progressive discipline language in it, which would explain why she wasn't fired after the first incident.

Steven March 24, 2014 at 10:07 am
This just shows that no one is safe, just about anyone can be doing illegal stuff. Most Dotors haveRead More taken pills to help them, make them feel good, or got pills for others (ie: family, friends, friends of friends) just because they asked if he could get them or write a script for them. This is a BIGGER Problem then you think ! A lot of Doctors are taking pills that are what is called illegally obtained. It just isn't the Doctors, Nurses, Attorneys, Judges, Police Officers, Teachers and so one. Most are looking for that feel good feeling, or that little extra boost. prescription drug use is up, it's worse then the use of people smoking pot. As with pot, you do not get addicted to it, and it is.not.a gate way drug ! If.por is a gate way drug, then.so is alcohol, aspirin, vitamins. prescription drug abuse, leads people to cheat, steal, lie just to get them, then when they can't get what they want, they will try something else then. So Gee isn't that a."Gate Way" drug then ?

Patch reinstates deleted accounts! March 18, 2014 at 09:50 pm
I couldn't understand why these comments were put here. Then I realized it's probably since PatchRead More doesn't post actual local stories anymore. Interesting story. Chicago Trib reports that it's a federal lawsuit, but CBS gives a local attorney's name. Hopefully it's through the DOJ, who protects servicemembers' rights. IF Officer Bello wins this case, shame on the Village of Skokie, AGAIN! Officer/Staff Sergeant Bello: Thank you for your service!!

FOM: No, I don't think I am. I gave my opinion about the story. No one is talking about allRead More prisoners but if that is your question to me then yes, I believe that all people who commit crimes and are found guilty should pay for their stay in jail. They should pay restitution.
Deerfield Resident March 24, 2014 at 04:07 pm
I like any thing that makes life tougher for criminals....make them work to pay for theirRead More incarceration (love it!).....secondly, how much has this Country taken a step back when your health care program is called obamacare (no caps) embarrassing to say the least!
FaceOnMars March 24, 2014 at 06:05 pm
sklogw: while we weren't "talking about all prisoners" specifically, I don't think itRead More would be fair/just to apply conditions such as the requirement to pay for incarceration to one prisoner, but not all. As a general principle, I'd be kind of torn ... since it might only fuel the circumstances which might lead to greater recidivism and enable "Big Prison" industry to continue to incarcerate non-violent offenders at an alarming rate.
Sue Afryl March 6, 2014 at 05:54 pm
I'm not surprised. 10yrs hardly seems sufficient civil recovery unlikely. They can seize propertyRead More and assets but will never recover a fraction of the value

Just another case of immigrants allowed into the country with no thought as to their desirability orRead More whether or not the nation even needs more immigration.

A glance at the list of the 15 most wanted criminals on Sheriff Dart's website reveals thatRead More virtually all of them are clearly identifiable as immigrants, most Latino. Cook County is a "sanctuary city" where police are restrained from co-operating with immigration authorities to identify and deport illegal aliens. These are the fruits of the open-borders pro-immigration lobbyists and the educators, news media and politicians who parrot their line. Immigration, both legal and illegal has to be halted very soon, just as it was in the 30s and 40s.
