I wish Chicago problems would stay in Chicago. If these individuals want to live here then theyRead More should leave their issues behind them. Why should Oswego have to suffer this? They came here because Oswego is a nice place to live. But it will only stay a nice place if they leave their problems at the door.

Law abiding citizens don't refuse to cooperate with the police. My hunch is, and I bet the copsRead More figure this too, is that the robbers were targeting a drug supply that they knew was kept at the house, which would explain why the "victims" don't want to cooperate with the police. I highly doubt the robbers did this just for phones and a car. And I am sure the "victims" know their robbers. And I am guessing drug sales paid for the house and Audi. Enjoy your neighbors Oswego!

Nice. Sleepy town Oswego. Boasting of excellent schools, etc. Oswego Township shows that thisRead More property is owned by: IH2 PROPERTY ILLINOIS LP % ALTUS GR Owner Address: 21001 N TATUM BLVD STE # 1630- Owner City: PHOENIX, AZ 85050 307 Hemlock Drive. Ashcroft subdivision 2012 taxes = $8,723 according to zillow.com How content the homeowners in just this subdivision paying these property tax rates must feel with neighbors like this. Be aware neighbors. Outside investors are renting to anyone.

Seems like pretty weak charges considering he KILLED 4 people! Wonder if he is even legal?

They need to have trucks in right hand lane like it used to be. They also need PROFESSIONAL truckRead More drivers and pay PROFESSIONAL truck drivers. $9.00 an hour forces long haul drivers to drive more than the allowable 8 hours a day. They need to bring back Union drivers making a living wage and make it more difficult to obtain a trucking license. Didn't we learn ANYTHING from George Ryan's gifting of trucking license?

2speed..that is absurd. Everyone is under a clock, but not everyone KILLS four people!
With the vehicles involved in the crash still in the background, Illinois State Police held a press conference Monday, raising the death toll to five from Monday's two crashes on I-55 moments apart.

Last year when the construction in that area began and the crashes started adding up there was anRead More out cry about what to do about it. Well the state police and local and state legislators got together to try and find ways to reduce the amount of accidents in the area. Nice job guys-NOT. I know it is not solely the fault of local and state officials, blame must also go to those who drive recklessly. And by that I mean anything that distracts you from your PRIMARY job which is safely and legally operating your motor vehicle. Having higher speed limits is not the problem. Trucks ignoring the law that states their speed limit is 55mph is so widely ignored that they are a major contributor to the problem. Now I know there are people who will come on here and defend trucker drivers but who hit who here? In both crashes a truck was the initiator, need I say more? Regardless of what the state does there will always be stupid drivers, and as long as we have construction zones and stupid drivers we will have crashes and loss of life.

Speed is the problem. I don't think anyone drives 55 on the expressways. Everyone is in a hurry,Read More for what I don't know. Just to save a few minutes?

Who's kids are doing the shooting? Theirs! Parents cry about losing love ones yet are you parentsRead More watching over your own kids? Do they believe bad kids are being Bused into the City of Chicago to shoot people??? Parents where are you kids right now, where are they at night? Watch your KIDS it's up to you to teach them right from wrong NOT the police!

Stop the revolving door of justice(nonjustice!)!! Once they are involved in a crime involving a gun,Read More they should be sentenced to Hard Labor.. That's right, just like the Old Days!! No more of this crap where they lay around and get free room and board! Put them out in chain gangs and let them work! Screw the bleeding hearts who want to be nice to felons! Most of these people are hardened criminals..once again, if you do the crime, you do the time..But, now make it Hard Time that may sway them to straighten up!!

ATTENTION PATCH EDITOR ET AL.... This fellow Louis Fasullo needs to be reported to localRead More authorities. His comment is not only highly confused...but also borders on a confession of sorts. Check into his ISP address...and contact appropriate persons.

What a dummy...if I was the girl I would NEVER speak to him again, ever...he could easily haveRead More gotten her arrested & charged b/c she innocently revealed details about her job duties...trust is something a relationship is supposed to be built upon & not using that trusted information to commit an illegal act.

At least when the minks were released they had a fighting chance at survival, as opposed to 100%Read More certain death & suffering at the fur factory. Furthermore, those who profit from this cruelty would not have done so in this instance.

These mink are not equipped to survive in the wild. Most will die of starvation. Well intended butRead More badly misguided.
