The ironic part is, even they may not be immune to the type of random lawlessness and danger they are creating by these moves. But they'll never understand or believe that. Meanwhile, the common citizen lives in a deteriorating warzone and feels less safe every day. Life in Obama's New Order......

If details aren't available, they can't publish them. No news agency likes speculation. But to satisfy your need, how about: The two victims were trying to hit on his girl friend, who lived next door, and he came to her defense. Will that work for you?

What exactly do you think has been "sensationalist" about the media's coverage of this case, TOL? Nothing that I have read about it here seems the least bit sensationalized. To their credit, the QJ's writers are very good at reporting "just the facts ma'am" (so to speak) in cases like this. It's obviously NOT the news media's job to speculate as to "why" or "over what"…

After seeing the distribution list of the tickets I would say they compounded their first error with the error of using the tickets to buy off their media buddies. I would bet some of the area's non-profits could have put these to better use.

Will require private employers to first evaluate job applicants' skills then criminal histories

Gov. Pat Quinn will sign legislation requiring private employers in Illinois to first evaluate job applicants' skills then ask about criminal histories.

The Job Opportunities for Qualified Applicants Act, otherwise known as the "ban the box" bill, was sponsored by Democratic Rep. Rita Mayfield and Democratic Sen. Antonio Munoz.

The legislation will make Illinois the fifth state to ban a private employer from requiring disclosure of a criminal history until an applicant was determined qualified for the position they applied for. Illinois currently bans state agencies from asking about criminal history on initial government job applications.

Munoz says everyone should have the opportunity to be considered for employment.

Some construction jobs, emergency medical jobs and security jobs are exempt from the legislation.
