Do you idiots even read the story or watch the video? ALL of the information is right at yourRead More fingertips and you STILL manage to be uninformed. You people have ZERO leverage to mock the parent in this story. Truly incredible

How can you "detonate" something that doesn't contain explosives? Was this just a case ofRead More "Panic at the disco"?

McCloud -- what makes you think they ever went into the voting booth. Absentee voting in theRead More comfort of one's own living room and supervised by the Democrat Precinct Captain does part of the job in Cook County. Plus, of course, the absentee voter material sent on request to addresses at which a registered voter no longer lives, collected by the janitor, and filled out by the precinct captain...Republicans need to know how to play that game.

Our younger selves would also have to be willing to accept the advice. Often easier said than done.
Pearl Gannon April 16, 2014 at 09:47 am
I believe both of you have very good points. @Sal, who's to say that we, as younger children orRead More people would actually listen to that advice that we were given? We want to be free, do the opposite of what our parents say, etc. And @Bob, I wish more people realized that they can be THAT PERSON for others. We can be that for our children, friends going through rough times, strangers...you name it. The possibilities are endless. I just hope people learn that!
Willie Wilmette April 16, 2014 at 11:29 am
Sal is so right. Younger me would not have listened to me.

I know that the family is frustrated with the lack of information from the police. However, policeRead More departments in real life do not operate like they do in Hollywood. They do not share information about ongoing investigations due to legal ramifications.

No one would feel threatened if they just take the damn guns off the streets! Submachine gun or handRead More gun -- makes no difference - it only takes one bullet to kill someone or seriously harm them. And for what? A can of soda? But hey, lets not piss off gun lovers and the NRA. Conceal and carry to your hearts content - and sit by as innocent people die, many of them children. But the right to own that stupid weapon is all that matters, forget about the lives at stake or the lives forever changed because a gun went off! If the guns were better controlled - or better - taken off markets completely - we'd be living in a safer world. But no use trying to stress common sense in a senseless society. Why is it possible for a person to own such a weapon? Because law makers allow it because their pockets are lined by the NRA. There is no real "war on drugs" or "war on weapons" -- the real war is on innocent people who get caught in the cross hairs. The money keeps funneling through from drugs to weapons and back -- all under the careful orchestration of politicians and so-called law enforcement. And yes, the Tea Party has a heavy hand in keeping the NRA in power. There should be a heavy tax on gun purchases and gun licenses. Then maybe there will be less gun owners (many of whom, or their family members, end up shot by their own weapons). But lets keep protecting guns and hiding behind the 2nd Amendment, which has been in much need of revision since it was first passed. How much blood has to be shed before gun lovers finally get it that guns are not a good thing?
Grandpamike April 16, 2014 at 11:28 am
@reverendMother Well said, but unfortunately falls on deaf ears.
Grandpamike April 16, 2014 at 11:32 am
@JoeMandi He is a byproduct of the Tea Party, Militia type mentality in society these days. AllRead More hiding behind the 2nd Amendment which has nothing to do with ordinary people owning guns, but debated vociferously by people swayed by the NRA, the PR firm of the gun manufacturers.

How broke are we you ask? Well we are 17trillion $ broke. Is that a lot of money? Well lets see. AllRead More single family homes combined in this country are worth about 16Trillion $. If none of us had a mortgage and everyone sold their home and gave the money to the gvmt we would still be broke. That's effin broke.

Chris Stacy April 16, 2014 at 09:17 am
He did not have a "submachine gun", he had an ordinary pistol. (One way you can tell isRead More that there was no mention of an additional federal charge for illegally possessing one. Another way would be to Google Intertec 22, assuming you understand that a machine gun fires more than one round when you pull the trigger, and this one obviously does not.) This is just the media trying to hype up the story by inventing a machine gun where there was none. Isn't it a good enough story that some felon went nutcase with an illegally possessed stolen pistol?

Hey John Rithouse, if you don't like it, then don't come here for news. Guys like you make this sameRead More annoying comment every day. Are you mentally slow?
rubberband April 15, 2014 at 12:28 pm
This was out in my neck of the woods. All really great kids, college bound and starting their adultRead More lives. Having lost a child, I can say these families will mourn for as long as they live, and will have to find a "new normal" as EVERYTHING is changed for them now...I wish them strength, there is nothing quite like burying a child. Appreciated are the messages of respect and sympathy. It can be annoying to get news from areas other than your own, however the new Patch is doing things differently, and show no evidence of changing it back.....my best advice would be to ignore stories not in your area, and to write your editor directly, and share your comments with those who can make changes.

Kathleen I don't get the Massachusetts reference, having said that I think your about right.
century April 15, 2014 at 10:30 pm
Kathleen, your right. As for housing, the less number of homeless, the more grant money the city andRead More state receives for housing. It happens all the time in Pennsylvania. Free loaders like the crackheads mentioned in the story is why people who have legimate disabilities are judged as liars and have to fight for their rights.

I believe it was Gov. Dukakis that allowed the dopers and losers into the senior housing. Got toRead More love the blind faith voting mentality of Massachusetts.
Alice Riley April 15, 2014 at 09:12 am
Oh and in one year our property taxes more than doubled--and that's not even including what theRead More mayor plans to do with increasing property taxes. This state is run by corrupt politicians and union leaders. Their ineptitude has what has led us to this fiscal nightmare and they continue to look the other way and just expect to have the residents pay even more to solve the problems of their own making..
Grumpy Old Man April 15, 2014 at 01:33 pm
@Southeast Side - Well, if all of the middle class has moved out of Chicago it will be othersRead More (wealthy, poor, working class) who are paying the tax. If your argument is that there still is a middle class in Chicago and that they will pay the tax, say it. As it is your response just sounds like a left wing shill. Other than your last comment, I happen to think your post has a point because I think implicit in your response is that there is still a significant middle class in Chicago (but if taxes keep going up the comment in the main article could be a self fulfilling prophesy - maybe not - there is some controversy over whether millionaires would leave the state if the 3% additional surtax was imposed on earnings above $1 million).
Grumpy Old Man April 15, 2014 at 01:57 pm
Frankly, I am not so sure that Zorn doesn't have a point. The ever escalating property taxes affectRead More all of us and probably in excess of what we would pay in terms of increased property taxes (or rent increases due to them). However, it would require some trade off - like a reduced property tax level than currently in place and a single taxing entity for Chicago - the council to set all taxes in the City including taxes for CPS. I don't have the answer but I wouldn't mind some reduction in services and something done abut the constitutional provision that these pensions can't be touched regardless of how economic downturns affect the ability of the investments in which the funds are deposited to maintain a pension amount at a given level.

It says Around Town but the headline is UTAH. Utah is not near Natick!! I think everyone should notRead More open an article on Patch unless they see their town's name in the headline. So If it doesn't say Natick, then we all know it is not LOCAL to the Natick Patch. The less clicks these Patch sites get, the fewer advertisers they will get and then perhaps they will realize if we want sensational news from across the country we'd go back to Patch's former owners AOL and the HuffPost! Those here from other Patch sites - I think you should do the same only click on articles that mention your community's name. No name. No click!

@William, You are the reason many folks leave this town. Liberal values, no sense of neighborhoodRead More trust, and pure judgment. So...should I tell my children they were conceived by a "sperm donor" as you think? Believe me, you didn't get me "worked up", only my "sperm donor" can do that. Sorry to disappoint. I won't even acknowledge the rest of your pint-sized egotistical comments. Talk to me when you have a disabled child, are a cancer survivor, and work hard enough to understand the real value of Conservative life. I am leaving this uppity town soon. It's quite sad, truthfully. I talk to many and they want out because of people you. I am leaving Illinois, I won't look back on Geneva as a good place to be even though I've been here 13 years. I only stayed for my "Sperm donor-ed children". You're a ruthless pig. William? William who? Reveal yourself like a real man would. You're a coward just like a terrorist. Saying ruthless things to belittle a woman, you're also an abuser. Seems to me your a bitter old man. May God forgive you, for he knows not what he does.
Momx4inGeneva April 16, 2014 at 03:48 am
@William you need to be "Booted" out of this town, and State. You can take your threatsRead More and abuse with you. You, the old man, married, but hasn't ever been able to shoot a "X" anything. Sorry God hasn't blessed you with a womb to carry your evilness.
Phaedrus Pirsig April 16, 2014 at 09:04 am
Jim, that's fine, I was only mirroring your own comments. Are you also proud that all yourRead More neighbors property taxes are going up? I have neighbors that been on my street for 25-40 years that are being forced out of their homes because the city took away their long term resident discount and shrank their senior citizen discount 85%. All due to union pensions. Are you proud that this is the worst state in the country fiscally because of union debt. Debt procured by union backed politicians. Do you think your neighbors, friends and family that aren't union members are proud of you for the debt they pay? What do you think non-union people say about you behind your back? Jim do you worry that the city or state will go bankrupt and you will get nothing because your union won't compromise? Anyway, thank you for displaying your pride, we all know what comes after it.
