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.

absolutely her rights were denied, if i have to drive behind cars with their fish stickers, and godRead More is good bumper stickers, than a woman has a right to display her choice to be an atheist
Pati beardsley April 20, 2014 at 10:46 pm
Her rights were violated. If "I" have to look at all the jesus propaganda, then I shouldRead More be able to voice my right to free speech. While I would never choose such a plate for fear that my car would get vandalized, I totally support this woman's right to request it.

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.

You can love Jesus christ and believe in him without being a catholic. Just because you are againstRead More catholicism doesn't mean God and Jesus don't exist and you have to be against them too!

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.

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.

Nola Loper April 20, 2014 at 07:56 pm
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
Jason McSweeney April 20, 2014 at 11:51 pm
Wow must have struck a chord with the anonymous rich playboy of Deerfield in my last post! We'veRead More gone from bad grammar and baseless allegations to attacks on my family and degrading all single parents. Is that a Deerfield Community College degree I see on your trailer wall? Exactly how long have you had erectile dysfunction, and why did you decide to take your anger out in the Patch comment's section? HAPPY EASTER ALL!
