Rahm Emanuel has said a million times over.... "Its About The Children" YET he wants to put distracting electronic billboards all over Chicago... So drivers can be distracted with Cell Phones, Texting & now Television like Billboards

Emanuel wants digital billboards in neighborhoods - Plan would allow 100-foot signs on city property

Digital billboards up to 100 feet tall could sprout on city-owned property in neighborhoods all over Chicago as part of a proposal Mayor Rahm Emanuel introduced to the City Council on Wednesday.
The mayor's plan would allow outdoor advertising companies to build digital billboards on city land if they agreed to tear down at least five of their conventional billboards, which Emanuel says clutter the landscape and bring in too little revenue.
City Chief Financial Officer Lois Scott said there's no limit to how many of the signs the city would allow to be built as part of the trade-off program, and no estimate of how much revenue the city could bring in through agreements with the billboard companies. "It would be handled on a case-by-case basis," she said.

87 Year Old Missing Man May Have Been Found Up A Crete - Coroner: Body found near Crete might be missing Chicago man

The skeletal remains of a man found this week inside of a car stuck on a drainage pipe could belong to  a missing Chicago man, authorities said today. A farmer discovered tire tracks in a corn field late Tuesday afternoon and followed the tracks to a Chevrolet Lumina that was stuck on a drain pipe, said Will County Coroner Patrick O’Neil. 

The man saw skeletal remains inside of the car, which was in a wooded area of a Will County forest preserve, and notified authorities, O’Neill said. Personnel from the coroner’s office arrived at the scene near Crete-Monee Road and Western Avenue near Crete shortly before 6 p.m., O’Neill said. 

Identification found in the car matched information of an 87-year-old Chicago man who was reported missing in September, O’Neill said.


50 Year Old Bicyclist Killed by Truck - Another lean mean green bicyclist ran over by a truck in Chicago....

CHICAGO - A male bicyclist was pronounced dead this morning after being struck by a truck in the Noble Square neighborhood, officials said.

The accident happened at the intersection of Ashland Avenue and Augusta Boulevard at about 10 a.m., said Chicago Police News Affairs Officer John Mirabelli.
The truck and the bicycle were traveling westbound on Augusta when the driver of the truck tried to make a right turn onto Ashland Avenue and struck the bicyclist, Mirabelli said.
The driver of the truck, Danny Darling, 47, of Michigan City, Ind., remained at the scene and was ticketed for making an improper right turn, Mirabelli said.
Chicago Fire Department paramedics took the victim to John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County, officials said.
The Cook County medical examiner's office said the man was in his 50s and was pronounced dead at 10:35 a.m.

12 Year Old Little White Girl Autumn Pasquale Tortured & Murdered By BLACK BROTHERS Justin Davidson & Dante Robinson for parts off her BMX Bicycle

A New Jersey mom ratted out her teen sons for the murder of a 12-year-old girl after reading a Facebook posting hinting that one of them wanted to go on the lam, law-enforcement sources told The Post.
Justin Davidson’s mom saw his message “Might be moving :(” on Sunday and became suspicious.
She tipped cops that he might have been involved in the disappearance of their neighbor, Autumn Pasquale, in Clayton, NJ, the sources said.

Autumn was allegedly lured to meet Justin, 15, and his brother Dante Robinson, 17, at their home Saturday because they wanted parts from her beloved BMX bike.

The massive search for Autumn came to a tragic end Monday night when her body was found stuffed in a recycling bin at a vacant property near the boys’ house.
An autopsy found she had been strangled.

As family and friends held out hope that Autumn would be found alive, Justin communicated with her brother on Facebook to say he was glad police were using dogs in the search, NBC Philadelphia reported.
The two brothers were charged with murder, body disposal and tampering with evidence. Justin was also charged with luring.

When detectives searched the Robinson home, they found some of Autumn’s belongings and her bike, Gloucester County Prosecutor Sean Dalton said.

The boys’ father, Alonzo Robinson, told the Star-Ledger of Newark that his sons had been charged with bike theft before.

“I think someone wanted the girl’s bicycle,” Robinson said. “Maybe she wanted her bike and resisted, and one of them snatched her off a bike.”

The girl loved BMX bikes and famous riders, her Facebook page said.

Senior Chicago Cop Debra Kirby denies covering up Abbate bar beating

Photo: Deb Kirby, Chief, Office of International Relations for the Chicago Police Department answers a question.

She’s one of Chicago’s top cops due to her political connections and not her abilities — so highly rated that she was one of three trophy finalists to replace former Supt. Jody Weis. But Debra Kirby’s account of her actions in the aftermath of disgraced officer Anthony Abbate’s notorious videotaped attack on a bartender was directly contradicted in sworn testimony Tuesday in federal court by another officer and an assistant Cook County State’s attorney.

1st a nanny in NY kills two young children she was watching and now two young children murdered in Naperville

Off-duty NYPD cop who drowned in his basement while saving his family among Sandy's death toll

Hurricane Sandy kills at least 19 New Yorkers

Fallen trees, down power lines and flooded streets were a deadly combination for residents across the city.

Destruction, disruption -- and death.
With 80 mph winds and raging floodwaters, Hurricane Sandy killed at least 19 New Yorkers -- including an off-duty cop who drowned rescuing family, an elderly woman whose oxygen machine lost power, and two friends hit by a tree while walking a dog.
Officials had good reason to fear the already heartbreaking toll of city residents drowned, electrocuted or crushed could still rise.
Two little boys, ages 2 and 4, were listed as missing nearly 24 hours after they were separated from their mother when her car was submerged on Father Capodanno Blvd. on Staten Island, sources said.
The mom typically dropped little Connor and Brandon at a relative's house in Brooklyn on her way to work as a nurse. But Monday night, she panicked as her car filled with water, a neighbor on Nash St. said.
“She got stuck,” the neighbor said. “She got the kids out of the back and somehow she lost them...I can’t imagine how she feels,” the neighbor added.
Police also were still checking on homes where residents had been out of touch with loved ones -- and finding more horror throughout the day.
Fallen trees, downed power lines and flooded streets and homes proved to be a tragic combination over and over again for so many people, from an eighth grader found dead in debris on the street to senior citizens who couldn’t escape the rising tide in their homes.

Here are Sandy’s victims:

-- The off-duty officer, Artur Kasprzak, 28, hustled his relatives, including a 15-month-old baby, to the attic of the family’s Doty Ave. home on Staten Island as the storm surged inside.
The six-year NYPD veteran then went downstairs to look for his father -- and never returned.
"He went to the basement. And the water just started washing in,” said his sister Marta. “He was pushed into a window. We were up in the attic. The water just kept coming in.
"It was just like a movie. People don't think this could happen. But it did."
The family called 911 and Scuba units in boats and on jetskis immediately responded, but couldn’t get in because of the water was electrified by a power line.
Once it was safe to enter, officers began to search. They found Kasprzak dead in the basement about 7 a.m. Tuesday.
His best friend, Tommy Krol, 29, said he learned of his buddy’s death when he showed up at the family home with pumps and generators he brought from his house in New Jersey.
“I said, ‘You need any help?’ And they looked at me and said, you’re a little too late,” Krol said. “He was a brave guy. He loved being a cop. He loved his job.”
Kasprzak was assigned to the 1st Precinct in lower Manhattan.
“He was really a great guy, well-liked, very professional and hard working,” said Deputy Inspector Edward Winski, the commanding officer. “It was very difficult this morning when I had to tell everyone. It's heart-breaking, to be honest with you."
-- In Richmond Hill, Queens, Lauren Abraham, 23, taking cell phone photos of a power line that had caught fire, suffered a horrific death after she stepped on a live wire on the sidewalk and fell to the ground, screaming.


Boyfriend charged in beating death of Bronzeville woman

One of the handfuls of murders in the last days....

The 41-year-old boyfriend of a South Side woman who was found beaten to death last month at her South Side home has been charged with her murder, police said.
Ronald James of the 5000 block of South Prairie Avenue was charged Tuesday night with one count of first degree murder in the beating death of Katrina Rogers, police said.
Rogers, 39, of the same address, was found dead Sept. 13 shortly after 8:30 a.m. lying at the bottom of a stairwell, police said.
Officers were initially called to the Prairie address for a battery but found Rogers unresponsive with multiple injuries to her body lying near a basement, police said.

Carjackers shoot man, take Volkswagen in Lake Meadows...Lake Meadows ISN'T a suburb... it's a Chicago neighborhood....

A 25-year-old man was shot in the ear Tuesday night during a carjacking in the Lake Meadows neighborhood on the South Side, police said.

The man was taken from the 400 block of East 33rd Street to Northwestern Memorial Hospital, where his condition had stabilized, said News Affairs Officer Amina Greer, a Chicago Police spokeswoman.

Police say the man had been walking toward a silver 2013 Volkswagen Jetta at about 9:30 p.m. with another man, the Jetta’s owner, when two males approached.

CHICAGO PUBLIC SCHOOLS: Black & Hispanic parents to get $25 gift cards when picking up report cards - White parents need not apply....

Is the lure of a $25 gift card enough to persuade a parent who’s not involved in their child’s education to get involved? Seventy Chicago Public Schools in minority neighborhoods that have struggled to engage parents are about to find out.
At Mayor Rahm Emanuel’s request, Walgreen Co. has agreed to provide $25 gift cards to parents who pick up their students’ report cards and participate in parent-teacher conferences during report card pickup days.
“This is a way, in my view, of incentivizing responsible parenting,” Emanuel told a news conference at Field Elementary School, 7019 N. Ashland.
“If you don’t come to parent-teacher conference, if you don’t come to pick up a report card, our kids are smart. Then, they know there’s a gap between a parent and a teacher, a gap between the parent and the principal. We need to close those gaps and have a united front investing in our kids’ education.”
Emanuel said he got the gift card idea during one of his morning workouts.

Disney to acquire Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion - plans to release a seventh live-action "Star Wars" movie in 2015

Walt Disney Co. has agreed to acquire Lucasfilm for $4.05 billion in a surprise deal that gives the media giant control of the "Star Wars" franchise.
Along with the purchase, Disney announced that it plans to release a seventh live-action "Star Wars" movie in 2015.
The agreement continues Chief Executive Bob Iger's strategy of growing Disney through huge acquisitions that give the Burbank company control of key pieces of intellectual property. In 2009, Disney acquired Marvel Entertainmentfor $4 billion, a deal that resulted in this year's hit "The Avengers." In 2006, Disney acquired "Toy Story" and "Cars" maker Pixar Animation Studios for $7.4 billion.
"This transaction combines a world-class portfolio of content including 'Star Wars,' one of the greatest family entertainment franchises of all time, with Disney's unique and unparalleled creativity across multiple platforms, businesses and markets to generate sustained growth and drive significant long-term value," Iger said in a statement.
In addition to "Star Wars," Disney's purchase of San Francisco-based Lucasfilm will give it ownership of special-effects company Industrial Light & Magic, sound company Skywalker Sound and video game publisher LucasArts.
In June, "Star Wars" director and Lucasfilm owner George Lucas announced his plans to retire, and named producer Kathleen Kennedy as chief executive of Lucasfilm, which he wholly owns. Once the Disney acquisition is complete, Kennedy will become president of Disney's Lucasfilm unit and report to Walt Disney Studios Chairman Alan Horn.
For fans, the most stunning part of Tuesday's announcement is likely Disney's intention to make more "Star Wars" movies. Following the one targeted for release in 2015, the company said "more feature films [are] expected to continue the 'Star Wars' saga and grow the franchise well into the future."
In addition to new movies, Disney will look to use the "Star Wars" franchise throughout its businesses, including theme parks, consumer products, television and digital platforms.
"I've always believed that 'Star Wars' could live beyond me, and I thought it was important to set up the transition during my lifetime," George Lucas said in a statement. "I'm confident that with Lucasfilm under the leadership of Kathleen Kennedy, and having a new home within the Disney organization, 'Star Wars' will certainly live on and flourish for many generations to come.  Disney's reach and experience give Lucasfilm the opportunity to blaze new trails in film, television, interactive media, theme parks, live entertainment, and consumer products."
Disney is funding approximately half of the purchase price with cash and the rest by issuing 40 million shares of stock. Regulatory authories must still approve the acquisition before it can close.

The other day True News USA had a news article up about Texas Troopers in a police helicopter shooting and killing 2 illegal aliens .... You have to read this pandering news story...

The family of the fatally wounded illegal aliens are MAD! Not so much about them being killed by the cops...but because these illegal aliens like many others take loans from loan sharks to pay for their passage way into America illegally with juice loan interest rates... 10% a WEEK! The families are now complaining that  since the illegals were fatally wounded, they won't be working in America and sending money back to pay off these juice loans... Maybe Obama can pay off these loans for these poor family members! 

McALLEN, Texas (AP) — Texas law enforcement agents were close enough to a pickup truck to see there were people inside before one opened fire, killing two Guatemalan illegal immigrants, a Guatemalan diplomat said Tuesday.
After interviewing seven surviving illegal immigrants, Alba Caceres, Guatemala’s consul in McAllen, said there was agreement that the helicopter was 450 to 600 feet away Thursday when a trooper inside fired in an attempt to disable the fleeing vehicle.
A Department of Public Safety spokesman did not immediately respond to a request for comment.
“They all saw (the helicopter),” Ms. Caceres said. “All of them, including those riding up front because they were stuck against the window.”
Ms. Caceres said Monday that her skepticism was building that a helicopter could fire on a vehicle without seeing people stuffed into the cabin and bed. “Neither you nor I believe it,” she said.
Jose Leonardo Coj Cumar, 32, and Marcos Antonio Castro Estrada, 29, were killed. Mr. Coj was a father of three who was traveling to the United States because his eldest son needed surgery to repair an arm injured cutting firewood, Ms. Caceres said. Mr. Castro was a father of two whose wife is three months pregnant. Both men were from San Martin Jilotepeque, about an hour outside of the Guatemalan capital, Guatemala City.
Ms. Caceres was awaiting death certificates that would allow the bodies to be taken back to Guatemala.
Along with the driver, a passenger sat in the front seat and three people were crammed into the back area of the cabin, Ms. Caceres said. The other six passengers, including the two who were killed, were in the truck’s bed covered with a bedsheet.
The DPS helicopter was helping in a chase that started near La Joya. DPS has said the crew believed the truck was carrying a load of drugs when the trooper tried to disable it by shooting out a tire on a rural gravel road.
Ms. Caceres has made a formal request for an investigation. The Texas Rangers, an arm of DPS that often assists other agencies in officer-involved shootings, is leading the probe.
Texas Parks and Wildlife Department game wardens found the truck first. After the driver wouldn’t stop, they requested help and the DPS helicopter joined the pursuit.
DPS has said the troopers suspected a “typical covered drug load,” and the pickup was driving at reckless speeds. The agency’s general manual says troopers are allowed to use force when defending themselves or someone else from serious harm or death. Shooting at vehicles is justified to disable a vehicle or when deadly force is deemed necessary.
The Rio Grande Valley Equal Voice Network, a group of community-based organizations, scheduled a news conference and prayer vigil at the site of the incident for Thursday.
The immigrants’ families also have been concerned because they took out high-interest loans from someone in their community to pay the smugglers, and it will be difficult to pay that money back now that their relatives are in U.S. custody rather than working in the U.S., Ms. Caceres said.
The loans ranged from $2,500 to more than $6,000 at interest rates of 9 percent to 10 percent per month, she said.

Chicago Police Debra Kirby who was head of I.A.D. when Anthony Abbate beat a female bartender testifies in the civil trial - I wanted the death penalty for Anthony Abbate!

A high-ranking official with the Chicago Police Department denied on Tuesday that she pushed for misdemeanor charges for an off-duty officer who attacked a female bartender in a beating that was caught on videotape and went viral.
Debra Kirby, who was the head of Internal Affairs Division at the time of the 2007 beating, testified she wanted to seek felony charges against the officer, Anthony Abbate.
Kirby appeared tense on the witness stand in the Dirksen U.S. Courthouse as she answered a series of questions by attorney Terry Ekl, who is representing the bartender, Karolina Obrycka, in her federal suit against Abbate and the city.

Sheriff Tom Dart eyes unmanned drones for Cook County - especially around known gay hook up spots

November 2, 2011 The ever expanding surveillance camera networks, now blanketing major cities across the nation are everywhere Chicagoan's look except the sky. This week, two large cities in Texas took 'hi-tech' to a higher level - the skies. The Federal Aviation Administration (FAA) announced plans to implement new rules that would allow the routine flying of small, portable, and rugged unmanned aerial drones across the United States by 2013. Cook County Sheriff Tom Dart has been eying a couple of hi-tech drones for several months, which he says are far less expensive and more effective than helicopters.

Former North Chicago police chief Michael G. Newsome charged with stealing government property BY JON SEIDEL Staff Rep

PHOTO: Michael G. Newsome (WHITE SHIRT)

Lake County prosecutors accused North Chicago’s former police chief Tuesday of an “ongoing and lucrative scheme” to steal money from a fund where the city collected cash from drug arrests before he left his job as North Chicago’s top cop.
Michael G. Newsome, 51, is charged two counts of theft — the first a Class X felony, alleging he stole more than $100,000 — along with charges of official misconduct and misapplication of funds.
He surrendered Tuesday to the Lake County Sheriff after prosecutors filed the charges, officials said. His bail was initially set at $100,000 but lowered to $25,000 after a hearing, according to the Lake County clerk’s office.
“If the former chief is found guilty of these charges, it represents an enormous betrayal of the trust we placed in him to keep our community safe and to manage already scarce funds responsibly and legally,” said North Chicago Mayor Leon Rockingham in a statement announcing the charges with Lake County State’s Attorney Michael J. Waller.
Neither Newsome nor his attorney could immediately be reached for comment.
Rockingham and Waller declined in their statement to say when Newsome allegedly stole the money or how much was taken. The second count of theft against him alleges he took between $500 and $10,000, though, and the two officials said it was taken from the city’s asset forfeiture funds, where money seized from illegal drug deals is deposited.

16-year-old Ricky Childs (Named Childs because they all knew he would never live long enogh to be an adult) shot after firing gun at police dies - of police gunshot wound

A 16-year-old shot by a police officer during a foot chase on the South Side Sunday night has died, authorities said.
Ricky Childs, of the 7900 block of South Ingleside Avenue, was pronounced dead at 9:51 p.m. Monday at the John H. Stroger, Jr. Hospital of Cook County, according to the Cook County Medical Examiner's Office.
The foot chase began shortly after 11:15 p.m. Sunday night, authorities said. Police had been alerted to a robbery near the 8200 block of Drexel Avenue in the East Chatham neighborhood, and Childs matched a preliminary description of the suspect, Chicago police said in a news release.

Crew of HMS Bounty forced to abandon ship as Hurricane Sandy bears down on East Coast - 2 crew members missing

A majestic tall ship that was destroyed by a sea monster in one of the “Pirates of the Caribbean” movies was sunk Monday by an even fiercer foe — Hurricane Sandy.
The HMS Bounty was sent to Davy Jones’ Locker after the 17-man crew abandoned ship off North Carolina’s Outer Banks before the vessel headed for Davy Jones’ Locker, the Coast Guard reported.

But two or three members of the crew were still missing and the Coast Guard was battling 40 mph winds and 18-foot-high seas to find them.
“We certainly hope for the best, but we're preparing for the worst," Coast Guard Vice Adm. Robert Parker told ABC’s “Good Morning America.”
It was not clear why the 180-foot ship was plying those waters, but the first distress call came late Sunday from the owner reporting he had lost contact with the crew.
The Coast Guard later received a signal from the radio beacon of the Bounty, confirming that it was about 90 miles southeast of Cape Hatteras, N.C.

An HC-130 Hercules aircraft was dispatched and made radio contact with the crew, which reported the Bounty was taking on water and had lost power.
Donning survival suits, the sailors escaped the sinking ship in two 25-foot lifeboats.
The three-masted Bounty is a replica of the ship on which the famous 1789 mutiny took place off Tahiti. It was built for the 1962 movie “Mutiny on the Bounty” with starred Marlon Brando.
It has also appeared in the movies ranging from 1990 remake of “Treasure Island” to “The SpongeBob SquarePants Movie” that was made in 2004.

The doomed ship was renamed the “Edinburgh Trader” in the movie “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Man’s Chest,” where it is destroyed by a kraken, a legendary squid-like sea monster.

You have to love the hyped up media.... Hurricane Sandy to cause 100 foot tsunami wall of water on Chicago's lake front

Anything to sell a newspaper

Hurricane Sandy is hundreds of miles east of Chicago, but its effects will be felt on Lake Michigan Monday and Tuesday.
The National Weather Service has issued a lakeshore flood warning for 1 a.m. Tuesday to 4 p.m. Wednesday for areas bordering Lake Michigan in Cook County, northern Indiana and southwest Michigan because the remnants of Sandy will be kicking up big waves on the lake.

'Elmer Fudd Bandit' hits 5th bank on Northwest Side

SOMEBODY HAS TO KNOW WHO THIS MORON IS...Most likely a bad gambler at the closest casino.
A robber dubbed the "Elmer Fudd Bandit" -- because of his cap and plaid flannel shirt -- is suspected of hitting his fifth bank since the middle of this month, authorities say.
In the most recent heist, the robber implied he had a gun when he entered the bank at 7342 W. Foster Ave. in the Oriole Park neighborhood around 1:25 p.m. today, according to Chicago Police Department News Affairs Officer Robert Perez.
The man approached a teller and presented a note demanding cash, according to FBI spokeswoman Joan Hyde. After receiving an undisclosed amount of money, the robber fled on foot, she said. 

Rep. Luis Arroyo denies making threat to get Metra Healy station renamed for Roberto Clemente

Roberto Clemente died when he fell out of the back of a airplane at about 10,000 feet while air dropping food to his people. The airplane ended up crashing in the ocean while trying to look for Roberto Clemente. Roberto Clemente's body was never recovered... most like his body was cooked and eaten by his starving people. 

State Rep. Luis Arroyo (D-Chicago), whose Northwest Side district includes a large Latino constituency, wants Metra to rename its Healy station at Fullerton and Pulaski on the Milwaukee District North Line for Roberto Clemente, the late Pittsburgh Pirates star from Puerto Rico who died in a 1972 plane crash while on a humanitarian mission to Nicaragua.
And Arroyo wasn’t shy about reminding the board of the government-supported commuter-rail agency that he has a big say in Metra’s funding, as the chairman of the Illinois House Appropriations-Public Safety Committee — a move a Republican on the panel called “a threat.”

Van loads of Illegal Somali Aliens being driven to Ohio voting locations by Democratic operatives

We all get a $1.00 to vote for Obama!
What a deal, America is great!

COLUMBUS, Ohio — Two volunteer poll workers at an Ohio voting station told Human Events that they observed van loads of Ohio residents born in Somalia — the state is home to the second-largest Somali population in the United States — being driven to the voting station and guided by Democratic interpreters on the voting process. No Republican interpreters were present, according to these volunteers.
While it’s not unusual for get-out-the-vote groups to help voters get to the polls, the volunteers who talked to Human Events observed a number of troubling and questionable activities.

A source, who wishes to remain anonymous, is a volunteer outside the Morse Road polling center. She has witnessed Somalis who cannot speak English come to the polling center. They are brought in groups, by van or bus. The Democrats hand them a slate card and say, “vote Brown all the way down.” Given that Sherrod Brown is the incumbent Democrat Senator in Ohio, one can assume that this is the reference.

Non-English speaking voters may use an interpreter. The interpreters are permitted by law to interpret for the individual voting; however, they are forbidden from influencing their vote in any way. Another source who also wishes to remain anonymous has seen Democrat interpreters show the non-English speaking Somalis how to vote the Democrat slate that they were handed outside. According to this second source, there are not any Republican Somali interpreters available.

The logical follow-up question is whether a non-English speaking person is an American citizen. Although Republican leadership in Ohio passed a voting reform law, it was repealed by the legislature itself after the Democrats threatened a referendum. According to the Ohio Secretary of State’s web site, someone wanting to vote early in Ohio must supply one of the following in writing on the absentee ballot form, whether voting early by mail or in person: an Ohio driver’s license number; the last four digits of the social security number; or a copy of a current and valid photo identification, military identification, or a current — within the last 12 months — utility bill, including cell phone bill, bank statement, government check, paycheck, or other government document that shows the person’s name and address in addition to the voter registration acknowledgement.

The voter is not required to show the driver’s license or social security card, but must merely write it on the absentee ballot request form. While the individual would be required to show a utility bill, bank statement or other printed document if he or she chooses that option, this is in lieu of writing the driver’s license or social security number. Therefore, the information cannot be checked against the Bureau of Motor Vehicles or other state databases. Essentially, a person is asked to check a box stating that they are a citizen, and the poll worker is to trust that they are the person who is listed on the item being shown or the information being written. In other words, someone can be an illegal resident of the state of Ohio and the United States, get an apartment, turn on the heat, bring in the Columbia Gas bill, register to vote by the deadline, and vote by showing that same bill. There is then no verification that this individual is a citizen of the United States.

Matt McClellan, the press secretary for Ohio Secretary of State Jon Husted, explained, “There is a process to challenge a voter’s eligibility. The point in time for a challenge to be brought ended mid October. A poll worker could challenge a voter if they had questions as to whether or not a voter was registered or eligible to vote.” However, if the poll worker does not raise the issue at the time the voting occurs, that person’s vote will otherwise be counted on election day along with everyone else’s vote. McClellan was not aware of any reports of irregularities at the Morse Road voting place in Franklin County.

Two phone calls and a text message to the Public Information Office at the Franklin County Board of Elections were not returned.
According to the Somali Community Association of Ohio’s web site, over 45,000 Somalis live in Ohio. Only 40 percent have become citizens of the United States, and only 25 percent speak English well enough to get a job.

The second source mentioned has seen voter intimidation at this same voting place. A Mitt Romney bus stopped near the voting center, approximately 30 Democrats who were outside handing out the slate cards rushed over to the bus. They yelled at the bus, and swarmed around its door when anyone attempted to exit the bus. This, from the “tolerant left.”

All elements of this story are still developing and will be updated as new information is uncovered. Stay tuned.

Police Officer Marla Guye was going to turn herself in but she decided to get high instead....

A Gary police officer busted in Oklahoma with 48 pounds of pot in a rental car is now considered a fugitive, police said.
Gary Patrolman Marla Guye, 29, did not appear in court Monday morning for her formal appearance on a felony charge of trafficking in marijuana.
As a result, “an arrest warrant has been issued,” said Lincoln County, Okla., assistant district attorney Pamela Hammers.
Guye and her boyfriend, Terrance Gee, 25, of Michigan City, were arrested Oct. 23 during a traffic stop on the Turner Turnpike in central Oklahoma.
Police said Gee, driving a rental Ford Escape, changed lanes several times before a toll both without signalling, leading to him getting pulled over.
It was his nervous behavior after that that led to a search, police said. A suitcase holding clothes and 48 pounds of pot was found, police said.
Guye was released last week from Lincoln County jail after posting $7,500 bail. But after failing to show for court, that money was forfeited and a warrant was issued.

Chicago Cops release photos of MALE BLACK suspect in sexual assault on WHITE WOMEN in Edgewater Community


Police have released photos of a man suspected of sexually assaulting a woman in the Edgewater neighborhood on the North Side.

A Chicago Sunday.... Chicago Police Involved in 2 Separate Shootings - Wounding Two

Chicago police shot a man in the Englewood neighborhood Sunday at about 10 p.m., authorities said, and a second person was shot in the head by police after a robbery in the Chatham neighborhood.

In the first incident, Englewood District officers were on patrol near 57th Street and Wolcott Avenue following reports of gunfire in that area over the last few days, authorities said.

On Sunday night, uniformed officers from the Englewood District responded to a shots fired call and saw at least one person among a group of four or five shooting at a house, authorities said, citing preliminary information.
Pat Camden, a spokesman for the Fraternal Order of Police, said three gunmen were shooting at the house. The officers approached the group and announced their office, authorities said. One of the three turned and pointed his gun at police, and an officer opened fire, hitting him in the leg, Camden said.
The wounded suspect, a 27-year-old man, then tried to elude the police on foot, but was apprehended a short time later near 58th Street and Winchester Avenue, authorities said. He was taken to Stroger Hospital with at least one gunshot wound and a gun was recovered, authorities said.
A second of the three was also arrested, Camden said, and a weapon recovered from him too. A third person remains at large, he said.

Madonna got booed for talking up Obama on the "MDNA" tour in New Orleans.

Madonna's tendency to express herself cost her some fans Saturday night.
Several audience members walked out of the Material Girl's concert in New Orleans after she urged them to vote for President Obama.
"I don't care who you vote for as long as you vote for Obama," she said.
The pop diva, however, quickly changed her tune when she heard the crowd's reaction.
"Seriously, I don't care who you vote for ... Do not take this privilege for granted. Go vote," she continued.
This is not the first time Madonna has drawn criticism for making a political statement on her MDNA tour.
