Stop reading it then. The real shame is that what Patch reports is our reality.

Sadie - Please list the reckless policies and agendas. So repealing affordable health care is going to help this country how? Middle class Americans cannot afford their premiums. Haven't for quite a number of years.

Maybe you should write *wink wink* after? Sarcasm gets lost in print, I'm afraid.

Thansk Loren for explaining the delete option to me. I really appreciate it. I won't delete any of this information on the Patch. I want all the details. Ernie is correct; "HANG THEM". These punks are so protected by the system. They get a bed in jail, 3 meals a day, TV, computers, heathcare and not 1 but 2 public .defenders paid for by "US", the taxpayers. Ernie is also correct about the many many single mothers out there with all different fathers. This is carelessness and the life they chose to live. Dave is also correct when he wrote that parents are failing. I'll tell you why; so many of them don't care. They are usually on welfare and everything is handed to them on a silver "WELFARE PLATTER" However, you shoot one of the their gang banger kids, they run out to get a lawyer to cry police brutality. The police are doing the best they can with the scum that have moved into our once beautiful suburbs. Governor Quinn should be voted out of office for taking the death penalty off the table. How dare he put our police officers in harms way???. By the way, did Caryn get deleted yet? If she feels the Patch is too graphic, then go away. As far as her saying that kids read the Patch, then monitor the stories first. Be a parent and do your job. It's as simple as that. Stop whinning and take control. Pattyann. .

If a police officer commits a crime and gets caught they automatically look into his arrest's just to see if he was corrupt or dishonest there as well IE:John Burge . That being said when the governor was convicted shouldn't they have turned over his stupid decision to stop the death penalty? I think we should have some say in whether or not there is a death penalty in the state and not just leave it up to some corrupt politician to make the decision for us
