  • Comment Policy

    Please remember when leaving a comment on my blog that all comments are subject to the blog owners discretion. I do believe in freedom of speech, however, that right is not absolute. Here are the rules: 1 - Please remember the victim(s) first and foremost. Do not come here to comment only on the offender(s). My blog focuses on the victim(s). Do not glorify the killer(s). No negative comments about the victim. NO VICTIM BLAMING. 2 - I will not tolerate hate filled speech, vulgar or derogatory remarks about a victim. I will remove comments that go against this. I will not remove comments just because they do not match my beliefs, in fact, I welcome them! However, that being said, I will remove those that I find offensive, argumentative just for the sake of starting an argument that does not add to the post, hate-filled speech, etc. 3-No comments in ALL CAPS, or CoMeNtS. They are rude and difficult to read. I have had many complaints about it so no more. 4-Comments must be in English only and easy to read (meaning no text language, shortening words, etc.). Have respect for those who don't do text messaging or other lingo. 5 - ALL COMMENTS LEFT BY COMMENTORS ARE THEIR OWN AND THEIR OPINIONS. THEY DO NOT CONSTITUTE FACTS. NOR IS THE BLOG OWNER RESPONSIBLE FOR ANYONE'S OPINIONS OR FEELINGS. STATEMENTS MADE AS COMMENTS ARE OPINIONS, GIVEN FREELY BY THE COMMENTORS. If you have a question or problem with this, please feel free to email me (there is a link to my email above).

  1. Man, I live in Crete (suburb of Chicago) and your blog is very informative of crime happening here in the midwest. This stuff is sure getting close to home. Calumet City is just miles from me as I also noticed the other story regarding the child’s father murdering him.

    Sad stuff. Good blog!

  2. Steve,

    I was born in Chicago and lived there for many years. I would love to be back, too. My heart lies in Chicago, so I check Chicago news before the news here!

  3. That’s my boyfriend’s grandmother who was killed actually.
    Him and I were camping this dropped him back off at home around 3 PM today, and he called me an hour later to tell me…His parents didn’t want to ruin his weekend with the news.

    R.I.P. Grandma Schmitt…we miss you..

  4. camping this weekend, and i dropped him back off***
