The two were in the school for roughly 15 minutes before police arrived, lots of bad stuff couldRead More have happened in fifteen minutes. haven't they learned yet? driver could have radioed ahead, anything!

Totally agree w Deb ^^! The bus driver did not notice the never seen before kids jumping on theRead More bus????
JusticeLeague April 17, 2014 at 01:09 pm
Why is this the bus drivers fault? It could have been a replacement driver. Shouldn't the kidsRead More boarding the bus know those kids have never gotten on before?

Remember this Benny G and all you other scum sucking Liberals out there. The police in these ghetto areas are chasing them down every night in an attempt to keep them from coming into your so called safe areas. Appreciate their sacrifices and don't give this white Fucktard the time of day. Hey Kenneth! Love teh comments... Who else would say fucktard on here?

Baby RN April 8, 2014 at 12:07 pm
Sartre, as my name states I work with babies, and not any babies, I work with critically ill babies.Read More I am there with the infant for his or her long first 8 months in the hospital. Fighting for that baby to make it home. Then other days at a family's side when they take their baby off of life support. So please do not explain compassion of humans to me. I advocate for those who cannot stand up for themselves. Buddy cannot tell his side of the story. It is not his fault that he was born a pit, just as it isn't your fault what race, sex, etc you are. You have been brainwashed into thinking pits are vicious creatures and they are not. Stop believing everything you hear and actually think for yourself. Meet a pit. Like Larry suggested, go to a rescue or shelter and see how many pits are in there. Shelters have so many of these gentle fur balls, because people like you are terrified of them for no reason. If in the shelter they show signs of aggression, they are put down. So you can't say that those on the floor are dangerous. Now, no one here is denying that Buddy bit someone or 2 someones, but we are saying that he was terrified. Like I previously stated, the vet's office is a scary place for animals, and head wounds bleed like crazy. Does anyone know the actual wounds the vet suffered? Was it a nip? Did she require 2 stitches or 100s? Will she require plastic surgery? This information has not been released. The vet is not going to comment most likely due to the fact that she is going to sue the family or her office. And that is fine. But if she was brutally mauled, like so many of you pit haters imagined, then why isn't it all over the news? Because it is most likely a minor injury, and I truly hope for everyone's sake that it is. Oh and if anyone was wondering, I slept great last night knowing that most people are too afraid of my sweet pups to try to burglarized my home. ;)
Larry April 8, 2014 at 12:34 pm
I at times have to bring LOST-PIT-BULLS etc. etc. and other dogs to Chicago-Ridge animal welfare. IRead More don't like to take them there but some dog owners are Irresponsible and if the dog doesn't have a micro chip, or a name tag with a phone number we have no other choice. I always leave there hoping that their owners call and claim their dog or someone nice adopts them, no one wants to see a dog put down over STUPIDITY! Remember an animal unlike us can't communicate when something is bothering them. I till this day always tell people with children, no matter how much you trust a dog never leave the dog alone with a child, that child can aggravate any animal and the animal's only reaction can be to turn on them. So Pit-Bulls do get a Bad rap due to a few that have problems, but any breed can have the same results!!!
Cat April 8, 2014 at 05:40 pm
I prefer pit bulls over people any day.
Candy April 3, 2014 at 12:40 am
I am a lover of all dogs, including pit bulls and pit bull mixed breeds. Unprovoked aggression inRead More any breed dog is unacceptable despite being a loved pet who otherwise is "friendly." Stop playing with your emotions and act responsibly. Moreover, the organization, It's A Pittie Rescue, who sponsors Buddy, should be knowledgeable enough to know the legal ramifications involved with a dog who now has an official "Bite Report" documented with the county. Not every dog can be saved. We dog lovers know that. Use the money spent on lawyers and rescue another pit bull. There are hundreds of pit bulls at Chicago Animal Care and Control, not to mention other places, who desperately seek out rescue groups to take their dogs. Save one of those.
Grumpy Old Man April 3, 2014 at 03:20 pm
The interesting comment above ignores that there is no such breed as a pit bull. Pit bulls are theRead More generic term used to describe various breeds which have descended from the old English Bull Dog (itself a misnomer - the correct name is simply Bull Dog). Buddy acted out for some reason which is normally the product of fear. He can't be saved? Really? On just what facts is that speculative decision made? I agree that these dogs in various shelters need to be adopted and that's why I support the City of Chicago's recent ordinance requiring pet stores to obtain their animals from rescue shelters. The puppy mills and owners who abandon dogs whom they can no longer afford or control are real problems (in addition to the Michael Vick's who abuse them). That doesn't mean Buddy's family should just abandon him so long as they are willing to take the responsibility.

so lets just let this dog sit in a cage for 2 months and further damage him... Just set a dang courtRead More date already!!! what he hell is taking so long!

@ 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. It's appeared weekly in your Deerfield Patch for about 2 years. @Adam West: I will email you directly with more information about Darien Patch, one of the Patches in the region that has been without a full-time editor for the last year.

Not telling - I would guess the scholarships could have been pulled for violating the code ofRead More conduct that the athletes are to adhere to. A very sad situation for all involved. A 29 year old man should know better than to have a sexual relationship with a teenager! I hope the police in the state he is being allowed to work in are watching him like a hawk as well as his co-workers that may have teenage daughters.
Tom March 31, 2014 at 07:47 am
I wonder if his parents came up with another $25K to bond him out of Orland or is he still in theRead More tank?
Sue1 March 31, 2014 at 10:17 am
I still doubt that she has lost her scholarship. Most likely just rumors put out by the people whoRead More continue to blame her and not the adult. According to the law she is considered a victim, did nothing wrong, therefore no reason to rescind the offer.

Titan Dad March 27, 2014 at 10:23 pm
If he is working a job that is headed up by a general contractor....pepper, turner, walsh...theyRead More will have him off site. They will claim that he is a liability. He may be pushing a broom somewhere low key and be able to work but only get 10 bucks an hour.

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...
