  1. North Evanston Burglaries

    Hopefully….the judge is going to throw the book at these three fine gentlemen that broke into the vehicles. They are every bit as noxious as any of the gangbanging thugs from other parts of Evanston

    1. I await their defenders

      Soon we will see parents and relatives saying that they could not possilbly done this—that is was a mass mirage.

      That they are fine children, honor students, help old people across the street, work with their church and charity and are building green energy machines that will obviate the need for fossil fuels.

      Of course the courts will let them go with a  mild warning !  Maybe next time, and there will be one, they will get serious jail time—but only after they seriously hurt someone.
