I served on a jury for an assault involving biting that left a permanent scar on the victims hand.Read More It wasn't just a bite but a ripping. This 'bleeding heart liberal' voted for conviction and led the jury to see this as egregious and requiring that we do convict. That's the price of being an adult human being, to do the hard thing when necessary.

the database of town/city names is being flagrantly abused. 'nearby ness' of these places hasRead More seemingly lost the context of the state parameter. remember, The Patch is now run/owned/controlled/abused by some guy by the name of Hale, who apparently could give a flea's poop about the end user. http://streetfightmag.com/2014/03/06/new-patch-owner-running-company-in-lean-entrepreneurial-mode/

I think he was going a little bit to fast in a parking lot in order for his car to end up the way itRead More did... But I'm sure it ok because he is a cop and they are special, at least it was a boulder and not a person or a kid in a stroller going to get some food

I find Obama and IL to go hand in hand in a bad way. It would be quite ironic to see this builtRead More here.
Willie Wilmette April 18, 2014 at 12:48 pm
Why not combine the Lincoln & Obama libraries? Must be some economy of scale by combining theRead More two. $100 million, isn't that what Daley collected for his part in the parking meter scam? Thousands go to presidential libraries each year, therefore we should build more Navy Piers where thousands go each day, right? Illinois has nothing better to spend $100 million on because we fixed the pension crisis. We should have a checkbox on our tax forms - Does your household want to donate $21 to the Obama Library? If everyone says yes we get a second Presidential library that we do not keep up. http://articles.chicagotribune.com/2014-02-17/news/ct-lincoln-library-met-20140217_1_lincoln-complex-library-and-museum-abraham-lincoln-presidential-library Every president should have a monument built in their name with taxpayer's money. The silly taxpayers voted for them.
Genvieve LaChappele April 18, 2014 at 12:58 pm
maybe President Obama's library can have exhibits on why capitalism is evil and how to dismantle theRead More private sector. maybe they could throw in a few charts on exactly what a "fair share" is.

We moved here last August and love the hydrants. I didn't realize there were so many! Thanks for theRead More interactive map. But its unclear who won the contest. Not that it matters really but I'm curious. It shows 2nd and 3rd which are incredible. Does anyone know?

Kudos. More judges need to speak up, and I bet it will happen, too. Every state should have capitalRead More punishment. Some people are not people; they're evil monsters and have no place here.

The Judge was right. Too bad they don't have the death penalty.

Ridiculous. People need to read the book I had to read for my MSW program at the University of IowaRead More School of Social Work, "The Rich Get Richer and the Poor Get Prison." Matt Taibbi wrote an update (as wealth inequity and white-collar crime continue unabated and unconsequented) called "The Divide," which says much the same thing, and I'm anxious to read it. Wall Street CEOs can still millions and billions of dollars and not one of them goes to prison. In fact, they're laughing all the way to the bank. Yet this poor schmuck gets a free 89-cent refill and it costs him hundreds of dollars. Maybe things will have to get worse before people wake up and smell the coffee!

*Wall Street CEOs can STEAL, I meant
Tom G. April 18, 2014 at 11:35 am
Why have the drink fountain accessible to patrons if they aren't allowed to refill? Why not fillRead More the drink behind the counter so there is no confusion? You typically put the fountain out in front of the counter and allow patrons to fill their own cups when there are free refills. This incident is arguably entrapment.

This is a sad story. I wonder if Ray played at the casino often. I used to be a dealer in theRead More casino, very depressing job. The casino's make players their best friend and then when your money is gone they have no use for you. I hope the state grants 1 liscense to Chicago, at least a lot of the players will be tourists and it will not affect the local residents as much as the other casino's in Illinois.

Horses should not be nose to exhaust pipe on city streets. That is cruelty and the horse had hadRead More enough.
kathleen macmurray April 17, 2014 at 07:46 am
A horse and carriage ride in a park, fine. But not on busy, crowded city streets. It's cruel to theRead More horse and dangerous to everyone else. I'm with the NYC mayor on this one.
Sheila April 17, 2014 at 07:16 pm
Poor horse. I hope someone equine rescue unit will relieve him from his present circumstances andRead More either give him a good home or find him one.

mark April 18, 2014 at 07:23 am
When taxes are imposed on various industries then to stay in business the prices increase on theRead More consumer! Obamacare , gas taxes, payroll taxes, tolls, the proposed soda and candy tax , your tobacco tax is 75% of what the product really costs! Commercial Property tax increases! Do you people see what's going on here? This country is being destroyed by the Democrats! It is starting to resemble The a Soviet Union! We should change the name of this country to the USSA!
