Francisco Espinal-Quiroz, 51, could face more charges in the highway deaths of four people Monday, July 21, including Ulrike Blopleh of Channahon.

It's was a horrible accident. My heart goes out to the families. The news did a cover story on thisRead More stretch of highway. It showed 172 accident 6 deaths and 58 injuries. The state needs to take a look into that. I do feel his bail is excessive. Let alone made him out to look like a murderer who intentionally did this. I guarantee he wishes it was him rather than to take 4 lives. I think there are many occupations that don't require log books yet these people have been up for 24 hrs + and they get behind the wheel. Yes he should be held responsible but There are people committing horrific crimes that don't get that kind of bail. I know when something horrible happens they want to throw the book at that person. Unfortunately nothing will change the outcome. A perfect example is cell phones. Many deaths have resulted from people causing accidents while on the phone. It's against the law to use them when driving but I see it every day. I will say people are responsible for there actions and there the only ones to blame. Don't put the blame on the state police. That's not on them. I feel for them and everyone on that scene because no doubt it was a horrific accident scene

Truck traffic on 55 is insane, its getting way out of control and just today there were 11 trailersRead More with 9 of them going 3x3. Its like driving on the same tracks as a locomotive train.

What's with the mention of the restriction for a vision disability. I have one of those on myRead More license. It means I wear corrective lenses. The guy most likely fell asleep at the wheel, you can do that while having perfect eyesight.

Orland is not far from Chicago at all. There's no reason to assume he was working in the area. MaybeRead More he was visiting the Orland mall or a friend. Either way, it's none of our business why he was in Orland at the time of the arrest.

Change, my guess is you have no idea why Orland became popular in the 1970's. Ask your olderRead More neighbors who lived in South Shore. And please move.

Hickey flew off the handle and was offensive to the Mayor. It sounds like another one of HickeyRead More political stunts with Liz Gorman by his side. Hickey's collegues are legalizing cannabis in IL, setting the tone to our youth that cannabis must be safe, so should Norco, and xanax and adderall, and vyvance ect... I hope some of these Primary Care Physicians were at Hickey's meeting, they are handing this stuff out to kids and adults like candy.

Stop the revolving door of justice(nonjustice!)!! Once they are involved in a crime involving a gun,Read More they should be sentenced to Hard Labor.. That's right, just like the Old Days!! No more of this crap where they lay around and get free room and board! Put them out in chain gangs and let them work! Screw the bleeding hearts who want to be nice to felons! Most of these people are hardened criminals..once again, if you do the crime, you do the time..But, now make it Hard Time that may sway them to straighten up!!

Pj3, no Heather and her pay do not have the right to throw things at people. He threw the fries backRead More at them when they threw them at him. If she had the right to do this, she would not be charged for disorderly conduct. Not to mention the fact that for the past decade, most mcdonalds charge for extra sauce. I do not blame this supervisor at all. I blame the stupid cunt who thinks she can get away with whatever she wants. Could he have handled the situation better? Yes, but that doesn't excuse how her and her friend acted in the first place. People, no matter where they work, deserve to be treated like people. Not a garbage bag to throw your fries and ice cream at. If she can't afford 16 cents, then maybe she shouldn't be buying mcdonalds to begin with. And then turn around and buy a 99 cent ice cream cone. And why should she act like an ignorant bitch and then get the sauce for free? He followed company policy, until she became rude and began swearing. So we are pretty much saying, don't worry about acting like a respectable adult, act like a spoiled little brat and you'll get everything handed to you? Maybe we should start acting like people and not wild animals.
Mrs. Featherbottom July 6, 2014 at 02:36 pm
I can only assume that everyone saying she was in the right are other stupid ass 20 year old girlsRead More that are friends with Heather and her friend and aparently think it's acceptable to act like 4 year olds. Make sure you stay classy. Seriously, what a bunch of dumbasses. Also, the moment they threw those fries, they were no longer customers.
