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.

Maybe Flo W and Jake Matt are smokin' the same stuff "Officer Munchies" might have beenRead More on. Hope he was given blood and hair toxicology tests. Thought they were trained in defensive driving. What if it was a human body that the squad was "Mounted" on? Would you dismiss it also, Scum? I was told by a woman who counsels officers that 75-80% of all officers suffer from mental illness. If that is true, I hope the officer gets a psych exam and also pays for the damage out of his/her own pocket and NOT the Taxpayers. It isn't funny, it's Scary!

Who are you to put his business out there? For someone that believes in karma (what goes aroundRead More comes back around) you have a lot coming to you! What does any of that have to do with this article? If you have such a big problem with him you should tell him in person instead of putting personal information about him on the computer!

Sad to say, but I know a lady who counsels officers and she claims that 75-80% of All cops sufferRead More from mental illness. If that is true, it kinda explains why our law enforcement departments seem to be unable to operate without any kind of honesty and integrity. Perhaps better hiring standards should be implemented.

Sad that some people believe that the beating was justified. That type of punishment did not befitRead More the crime. It appears that the officers have mental health issues. If they are so thin-skinned that they have to beat someone for spitting on them, then they are probably sick in the head. They can get help for that type of psychotic outburst. If he spit on another patron and a bunch of guys jumped him, they would have been arrested. Everyone I have spoken to believes the officers should go to jail. I can't disagree. Anger management problems=Mental Illness. Sicko Boys in Blue.

@ 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.

10 days for domestic battery and aggravated domestic battery? Wow. so much for being held to aRead More higher standard. Was he armed when he beat this girl in her house at 3 am? I thought preventing a victim from calling for help via phone incurred harsher penalties? What about the burglary charge?http://chicago.cbslocal.com/2013/05/03/suspended-frankfort-cop-facing-new-burglary-charge/

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.

Actually, today (April 4th) she WAS fired. However, I find it a great example of ridiculous unionRead More rules that it took them this long to do so.
Tom RS. April 5, 2014 at 09:13 am
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...

I guess that gives the homeowner more guts or reason to slam the door in people's faces but I am notRead More sure how that will deter a burglar from coming the door. A sign will not stop a criminal. People should do what they can to protect themselves and I would recommend a gun as a better deterrent.

Arthur....the complaint about unions is that they defend employees such as her....she should haveRead More been fired the first time! She has people's lives in her hands....unions make it impossible to weed out bad employees...
Arthur Huff March 27, 2014 at 09:51 am
Deerfield, if it comes out that the union had a role in what happened in February being handled theRead More way it was then I'm right there with you. But we don't know that yet. All we know now is that the CTA handled it that way, we don't know why. For what it's worth, and I'm just pointing out facts for the sake of the discussion, in this crash and the one in New York it was a union official who told the press that the operator dozed off. Doesn't sound like they were trying to protect either of them, does it? In both of these cases they could just give us the standard "we are still trying to determine the cause blah blah blah" but in both cases they admitted right away that the driver was totally at fault. I'm not saying unions are perfect and don't obstruct weeding out bad employees, i.e teachers and tenure, but in this case we have no indication YET that it played a role.
Sue1 March 28, 2014 at 10:25 am
It would be interesting to get a copy of their contract. I would bet they have some sort ofRead More progressive discipline language in it, which would explain why she wasn't fired after the first incident.

*There were no injuries incurred by the recent fire at Gateway Manufactured Home Park. *The garageRead More of one of the houses was burned to the ground. *There was extensive and severe damage to the houses.
