Francisco Espinal-Quiroz, 51, could face more charges in the highway deaths of four people Monday, July 21, including Ulrike Blopleh of Channahon.

It's was a horrible accident. My heart goes out to the families. The news did a cover story on thisRead More stretch of highway. It showed 172 accident 6 deaths and 58 injuries. The state needs to take a look into that. I do feel his bail is excessive. Let alone made him out to look like a murderer who intentionally did this. I guarantee he wishes it was him rather than to take 4 lives. I think there are many occupations that don't require log books yet these people have been up for 24 hrs + and they get behind the wheel. Yes he should be held responsible but There are people committing horrific crimes that don't get that kind of bail. I know when something horrible happens they want to throw the book at that person. Unfortunately nothing will change the outcome. A perfect example is cell phones. Many deaths have resulted from people causing accidents while on the phone. It's against the law to use them when driving but I see it every day. I will say people are responsible for there actions and there the only ones to blame. Don't put the blame on the state police. That's not on them. I feel for them and everyone on that scene because no doubt it was a horrific accident scene

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!!

Does anyone know what happened last Friday evening next to Great Lakes Bank on Dixie? About eightRead More police cars, four young individuals handcuffed on the parkway. More police cars and an ambulance at a house a few blocks west. It was a wild scene.
Tommy Brassfield June 13, 2014 at 10:24 am
Gerald, the four individuals were caught stealing cell phones. They would approach people on theRead More street and ask to make a call. Then get in the car and pull off. This time, one of them didn't make it in the car, and by the time they came around to pick them up the cops were on the scene. Several of my neighbors were around, and we all pieced together the license plate and had good descriptions. Apparently, there were several phones in their car. The last victim also ran after the car and was dragged behind it for a short time. I heard that there will be felony charges against them.

She was right handed; but they found NO residue on her right hand.??? That sounds Very Strange. ButRead More they Did find it on her Left hand??? That sounds even more Strange. When you shoot a 9mm there is a recoil & the gun would have fallen out of her hand (when she died) the muscles would have relaxed. So then the gun would have fallen to her Right, on the Couch or it would have bounced off the Couch & onto the Floor. But they found it in Front of her, on her Lap????. That also sounds Very Strange!!! It sounds like a MURDER to me. They should have gone back to the scene, checked the sink & the pipes for gunshot residue. Were her Fingerprints even on the Gun??? It sounds like Sloppy Police work or a White Wash, or a Cover up!!!

Chicago Magazine recently published a 2-part series regarding the widespread cover-up of growingRead More violent black on white crime in Lakeview and the rest of Chicago, a cover-up emanating from the Mayor and all his flunkies.
