The elderly drivers that should not be on the road are way more dangerous than the cell phone usersRead More and newly-minted teen drivers...and NOTHING seems to be getting done about this!

The only explanation for "alan donahue's" comment is his mind is made of feces infusedRead More oatmeal.

Alan, you are a sick man...How does Obama even fit into this? And this was not Love....it was aRead More sexual pervert looking to abuse a child
Benny G. April 22, 2014 at 05:17 pm
The scariest and creepiest thing about these cases for me is that even though these Sickos know theyRead More could be communicating with the police or by clicking certain web sites that the police can show up at their door at any minute it still cannot stop their craving and obsession. That is why the only thing to do with these "people" is to lock them up forever. They never rehabilitate.

Jeez..........lighten up!! Happy Easter! This sites never claimed to be The Wall Street Journal orRead More New York Times!!

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.

Drawn on eyebrows and a heavy coat on the the lower lid, that's just wrong!LOL Not as wrong asRead More trying to pin it on your 12 year old daughter though, that's just scandalous!

The people who want more gun regulations... fail to enforce the ones that already exist! WantingRead More more laws and no enforcing the ones already on the books is liken to the worst kind of ignorance. Chief Keef should have been shot by the Cop he pulled a gun on, problem child solved!
RRR April 16, 2014 at 09:35 am
No conceal carry permit yet, huh Dan Cox? I'm betting you are having a bit of trouble with it, atRead More least that's what I heard.
RRR April 21, 2014 at 07:07 am
Guess Dan Cox hadn't gotten his conceal carry permit as we'd have heard him tooting his horn. ThereRead More are consequences to what you post. Your hate speech and BS seems to have done you in.

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.

She stated her opinion not necessarily factual. It is far from libelous.
David April 6, 2014 at 06:00 pm
Gee Stu, how can I ever thank you for reminding me I'm not a lawyer. Boy it's a good thing I put aRead More question mark after my statement so you didn't think I was trying to get away with misrepresenting myself. Who knows what you might have done besides calling me a bad name? Perhaps get a call from your mommy? Your infantile mind (notice, I didn't call you an infant) totally missed the grown up point that it was inappropriate for the author of the comment to publicly suggest that an already grieving widow was guilty of neglect and cause of her husband's death.
Benny G. April 6, 2014 at 09:52 pm
Agree David- It was more in bad taste than libelous. There is not much anyone can do with a severRead More dementia patient that "wanders off." What's amazing is nobody saw this gentleman and rendered help. The only way to treat this stage of dementia is 24 hour "lock down" and/or monitoring. I am sure the family is second guessing that day and certainly does not need any insult added to injury at this point.

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?
Frank G. April 11, 2014 at 11:50 am
Benny G. I think you hate the police because your dad was a abusive cop who poked you in the assRead More when you were growing up.

@ 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.
Magilla Gorilla April 12, 2014 at 07:28 am
@ Santaella. Robots, Droids or whatever you want to call 'em. They want programmable individuals whoRead More will NOT hesitate to KILL. At some point, Robocops are coming to your town.

Real smart. Steal commercial vehicles that most likely had company logos on them. Duh?

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.
Dennis Robaugh (Editor) March 30, 2014 at 11:13 pm
@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.
