Did you see the Drew Peterson movie? It portrayed Hosey's office as a gleaming, modern andRead More bustling. As opposed to the stained drop-ceiling and general bleakness. Just let the Patch be the joke it always has been.

Leave it to the Patch to embellish Comedy Central as a business to be respected.

How about the town of Algonquin try hiring employees who are not stupid morons the item looks likeRead More to me in the photo with a big green label that says "GEOCACHE" Maybe it is time towns explain to all their employees what Geocaches are like they explain to them what garbage cans are.

As long as we are talking about stupid morons, you may want to look in the mirror. If you lookRead More directly below the photo of the geocache, you will see the note "PATCH FILE ART". This means that it is a generic file copy of a cache, not the one they found. The geocache in question was a PVC pipe with sealed ends and no marking on the outside identifying it as such. You may want to apologize to the village employees for your moronic statements.

Sound like the Judge set a low bond, that why he was out, even with his past convictions. If peopleRead More only new what low bonds some Judges give out on serious charges, specially in CROOK COUNTY,IL.

Rico Suave April 6, 2014 at 07:24 pm People sleep peaceably in their beds at night only becauseRead More rough men stand ready to do violence on their behalf. 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?

When a pedestrian (or cyclist) is hit by a motor vehicle travelling at 45mph (as happened here) theRead More mortality rate is about 82%. In other words more than 8 out of 10 pedestrians would die from an accident of this type. The main reason for the Flight-for-life is because of the risk of serious internal injuries from a collision of this severity. The key factor in surviving major trauma is the time it takes to receive the specialized care only a level 1 trauma center has. Hence the call for Flight-For-Life, the decision is made by the trained paramedics on scene. Denise, you are glad the driver was not ticketed? Why? did you witness something that would cause you to believe the driver did nothing wrong? By your comment you imply she did not deserve to be ticketed, why is that?
Denise Majko April 6, 2014 at 04:05 am
Thank you, Robert, for the info about Lutheran General being a Level 1 Trauma Center. Good info toRead More have. And Mike Wray and "Anon", my comments were based on the information in the article...did you really read the article? The article states "...when a 2006 Lexus, which police said had the right-of-way, collided with the bicyclist..." So, yes, I am glad the motorist was not ticketed since they had the right-of-way.
Mike Wray April 6, 2014 at 11:13 am
Denise you're reading the article like it was a legal conclusion to an investigation, it was just aRead More comment by a police officer based on little information gained from talking to maybe just the driver since the cyclists was busy being attended to by paramedics and taken to the hospital. It is very common by the police to wait for the investigation before any kind of conclusion to the cause of a crash. There's nothing to be glad about here that was the point of my comment please don't make this into thinly veiled bash on all cyclists.

@ 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.

Brian: A fourth-grader could track him using Google Earth. He was desperate because the cops wereRead More chasing him. There will always be idiots who get whacked and drive, but he technology is there to track them. Every cop car has a computer, but their first reaction is to go "French Connection". There are no consequences for them; only for the victims of their recklessness.
Daniel Hill April 9, 2014 at 10:59 am
Joe, please explain to me how a 4th grader can track someone one Google Earth? are you one of thoseRead More people who think Google Earth is real time and you can watch a car as it drives down the road? surprisingly there are people out there who believe that.. the story says the police were pursuing, however that can mean a lot of things.. it certainly does not mean that the police were directly behind, they could have been miles behind..
Joe Beets April 9, 2014 at 11:20 pm
Daniel, are you one of those people who believes that Google Earth ONLY uses satellite photos? InRead More 2007, Google began offering traffic data in real-time, based on information crowdsourced from the GPS-identified locations of cellular phone users. In version 4.3 released on April 15, 2008, Google Street View was fully integrated into the program allowing the program to provide an on the street level view in many locations. I was a little fired up when I wrote that, so fourth-grader might not be able to swing it, but the technology is there. The point is, the bad guy was fleeing the cops, who were chasing him. Would he have done that, otherwise?

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.
