Let's just hope that certain people aren't involved. Like the mother of a little boy that was murdered last spring. Her name was all over the scanner this morning. That would be a sad little circle if she was somehow involved in this. She has a black car, and lives right where the car was stopped. hopefully we have come a little farther in life than that. Please.

Chicago no longer has the toughest gun laws in the country. Regarding handguns, they have the same laws as the rest of the state. That was part concealed carry law in 2013, eliminating "home rule" laws regarding handguns. It doesn't matter, though, because regardless of what gun laws are in place or not, it's still illegal to shoot people in almost all circumstances.

"Tree scape". A fiscal conservative would at least postpone an elective expense like this. Time to re-build cash reserves, then prioritize.

One of he few that stands up for what he believes. I don't think any want to take him on head to head but hide behind the procedural rules. Senate is a joke with McConnell, no better than Reid. He lied to get re elected in his state so why would Senate be different?

Makes one wonder if McConnell is a republican or the new democrat Harry Reid? McConnell apparently supports the baby butchers, illegal alien criminals, crony capitalism through E/I bank and obstructive legislative leadership. In other words, nothing has changed in congress with the GOP in charge.

Carroll Cullerton accused of sexual battery in Memphis

Son of IL Senate President John Cullerton

 (Note the nature of the following story)

On Friday, a Mid-South woman shared her story of an alleged vicious attack inside of a Beale Street nightclub. The man at the center of a sexual battery investigation — the son of a prominent Illinois state politician.

The politician is President of the Illinois State Senate John Cullerton, and his 26-year-old son spent part of Independence Day on Beale and behind bars.

They say nothing good happens after midnight. What Emily Moss says happened to her early Friday morning inside Club 152 was anything but.

"You wouldn't anything like that to happen to your little sister, your mom," said Moss.

Memphis Police charged Carroll Cullerton, 26, of Chicago with sexual battery for allegedly fondling Moss on the third floor. She had just gotten off work when she says Cullerton started dancing too closely.

The affidavit states Cullerton unzipped the victim's dress, exposing her bra to a crowded bar, then ran his hands between the victim's breasts.

Moss says Cullerton even told club security and police about his political ties.

"I guess he thought that was OK and he could get away with that, I'm not sure," said Moss. "Especially when you tell people ‘stop, don't do that,' and they do it anyways."

Cullerton bonded out of jail on Friday night. He is due back in court on Monday.
