Barbara Blaine, at a SNAP press conference Monday regarding Father Michael O'Connell
Bravo06 April 22, 2014 at 05:49 pm
DM and Ann let me help you out here. First this article is wrong. Second the allegation says itRead More happened at Golds gym in 1999 and involved a Marist freshman. Third, you had to be 17 to get into Gold's Gym, no exceptions. Fourth Father O'Connell never worked at or near a school. So riddle me this, someones intel is off and its not mine. So before you decide to condemn people, do some research. Dont just read a title and assume guilt.

I went to golds gym from 1994 to 2002. You could go there if you were 13 with you parent signing theRead More gym contract releasing them from liability. I remember so creeping church guy from our Lady. He tried making small talk with me. I thought he was a creep and avoided him. I found it weird he used to wear Sandburg football and wrestling there considering I never remembered him coaching there, nor did my younger siblings. I always wondered why some 30 something year old guy was always talking to the high school and college kids while there was plenty of hot trim in there. Do you own research first bravo, you didn't have to be 17 to get into gold's, I started going there when I was 14.

This is our system, it sucks. When I reported ( at least 30 times or more) social security fraud toRead More social security administration, nothing was done. So I went to our congressman lipinski and reported it to him ( several times ) that a lady who does not live in the U.S. , is not a citizen, visited U.S. twice for a few weeks is collecting $1300 per month, and her relative is getting all her SS paperwork and once a year she is forging that lady's signature and sending it in to SS so she keeps receiving her fraudulent benefits. Another reason why this system sucks is that I thought you have to be a citizen to serve on jury duty. Well, the same lady got a summons for a jury ( it came to my house as I was a secondary address), so when I called the jury duty dept. , and told them that the lady is not a citizen, does not live in the U.S.A., only has been in the U.S. twice for a short visit, they told me to send proof that she is not a citizen. how could I prove that she is not a citizen and does not live in the U.S.? What kind of info would anybody send in as a proof of non-citizen? I threw the summons in a garbage. Her social security stopped 4 years later when her relative passed away and all the mail came to my house , as I was a secondary address. When I received her statement from social security requesting her signature, I ripped it up and threw it in the garbage, and the payments stopped. That shows you how careless,stupid and bad our system is. I believe that the money she defrauded our system of belongs to our citizens and not foreigners.

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.

Drama is a footprint that Patch, and Mt Greenwoods hyper critical vigilante 19th Ward Alderman haveRead More in common. I'm quite sure that because she was CPD the article did not recieve the scrutiny and rhetoric that Matt O'Shea is so quick to sharpen his poisen pen on. She should consider her badge her lucky charm when having to reside in that lily white community of manufactured evidence.
Thomas Mc April 18, 2014 at 12:28 pm
Good thing they were officers. If he wasn't, a search would have never been done until somethingRead More illegal occurred. If she wasn't, she would likely be explaining her side from the other side of some bars. I took a friend to 19 to report the same thing...father didn't return the kids after a weekend during their divorce. They were both still married and had joint custody, although she had sole physical custody. The report was made but nothing could be done until a judge ordered the kids returned. And that sometimes takes a bit of time.
Jacob Matthews April 18, 2014 at 04:47 pm
The 19th ward does not act .......they re-act. They are sheep being led astray by an alcoholicRead More ex-bartender elected to fill a position no one else wanted. Matt O'Shea is a drama queen that clearly sides with the union that signs his paycheck. I can see his "merrionette" strings being pulled by the corrupt hands of the CPD who own and operate the Irish pubs that tend to his addiction.

Why if no amber alert are we looking for these children are with there mother.

it took Chicago heights police 41/2 months to arrest George Kleopa in the murder of ourRead More daughter.unless you stay on top of them and make a pain in the ass out of yourself the police move very slowly.then you have to wait years for the court to get around to justice.the whole family is the victim.

Jacob Matthews April 18, 2014 at 09:45 pm
Bob, I would love to give you some insight. To begin, What States Attorney Tom Simlson did. Was anRead More incredible job of reciting lines with the witnesses. There is no truth or validity to this editors depiction of trials events. The courtroom was filled with individuals awaiting court cases of their own, they had no interest in this trial. The editor of this depiction of lies was not even present in court. This article was written by Tom Simpson to give himself a pat on the back for the performance. The judge was very aware of Matt O'Shea's presence as he rep remanded the unprofessional and immature behavior he displayed in his courtroom. The judge instructed O'Shea that he was not going to like the reprocussions he would face when the judge found in him contempt. This case recieved a disproportional amount of press because it was personal to the wounded ego of a States Attorney with a case of envy. I attended that trial from start to finish. Vorbergs mother should be applauded for the travisty of injustice her son endured while she supported him without waiver even though she herself is in the final phases of her life. The case of an Oak Lawn Attorney masturbating in the parking lot on cicero avenue witnessed by a child and her mother went completely without mention. The rape committed by Matt O'Sheas neighbor, also a chicago firefighter who was removed from his perch atop a female guest in his home, also went without mention. This firefighter who was caught in an active rape is still employed by the city of chicago and still resides in mt Greenwood 19th ward with Matt O'Sheas approval. The rape by a Mt greenwood resident as he knocked down a door to seek his five year old prey also went without mention. States Attorney Tom Simpson and Matt O'Shea orchestrated this verdict with publications of lies and manufactured evidence. There were no children present and Kelly Mahoney testified her concern was for tools in a truck parked next to her home. I heard the 911 tale where she very calmly and clearly stated no children witnessed nor were present when she witnessed his vehicle adjacent to a truck she knew to have tools inside. This is a cowardly way to take down a nemisis. No man needs to stoop to these levels which says nothing for the reputation of the alderman or the States attorney.

Mr. Tagler faces 20 years in prison for defrauding the company he worked for, so how come the CEORead More banksters of Bank of America that defrauded American people of millions of dollars and got caught don't get arrested and face court trials? And if convicted go to jail? Chase bank big shots banksters do the same as Mr. Tagler did and none get charged with fraud. Funny, isn't it? Oh , I know, Mr Tagler had no connection to the politicians.

How do you know John is a convicted felon?? Vorburg is the issue in this article and I'm glad that he's off the streets and should be for quite a while. Be glad that these two took responsibility to catch this sick guy who was masterbating in front of children!!!
Jacob Matthews April 14, 2014 at 08:07 am
Chicubs1 I was in that courtroom. John Gregus felony conviction as well as Kelly's convictions wereRead More entered into court records. There were many inconsistent statements and there is history between simpson, oshea and vorberg. This is a case of vigilante revenge and the testimony was clearly rehearsed. When Vorbergs mother made a statement it went without notice. This is a mother who deeply loves her son. She only made one statement, "Gods work can't be explained, it can only be experienced."
Jacob Matthews April 14, 2014 at 08:17 am
Chicubs it is also a part of court records that John and Kelly are not married. The JudgeRead More continually corrected statements and clearly stated each time that she is single mother. Those are not my words. I have a great deal of compassion for this mans mother, she is not consumed with hate and revenge, she is doing what any loving parent would be doing, she isn't running from Matt O'Sheas vigilante posse, she is standing by her sons side and accepting the abuse. This is what I want my children to understand, I want my children to know I will always stand by them and love them. I don't want my children to hate and become a part of this vigilante behavior.
