Thank God for people like the Medill Justice Project, the Innocence Project and all others in theirRead More dogged search for the truth. Why didn't this letter surface at trial? Again, it seems we have a case of cops and lawyers more concerned with getting a conviction or blaming someone for a death than getting at the truth. And what is justice anyway?
Justin Virrgginn April 24, 2014 at 12:25 pm
Also just goes to show that. Cops and lawyers are willing to do anything to lock people up. WhetherRead More it be blatantly falsifying police reports. The States Attorneys office will charge anyone with anything as well. They rarely believe anyone is innocent. So my question is, who are the real crooks? And why is that when people are wrongfully imprisoned the people who put them there dont have to do any time for their mistakes?

I met Walter last year in Puerto Vallarta. He and Kim won a 3 night stay with Eric & Kathy fromRead More The Mix radio station. He was funny and well liked. I heard he was in Los Cabos this year again with the Eric & Kathy show. I wasn't able to go this year, but am sure he was just as fun this year. I was shocked when I realized who was driving the truck. My sincere condolences to his family and friends.

@ knee jerk. Although the upper limit IQ for officers is 105, the target IQ is between 94-98. TheRead More average IQ of a U.S. citizen is 100. Whenever you are speaking to a police officer, you are most likely speaking to someone with an IQ considerably Lower than your own. Please remember to speak slowly, always try to limit the amount of syllables in each word to less than three, and try not to laugh... Cuz They get Really Paranoid. Must be the drugs.

Does anything happen in Darien anymore?! I never see any articles about anything happening inRead More Darien, the Lion's Club pancake breakfast, the armed robberies at the gas stations, the 75th St. construction, city council budget, anything Darien related! How can you call this the Darien Patch when there is nothing about Darien in. Every other town or city has a Patch site that has articles related to their town. We get lazy editors who just copy and paste from other news sites.
Kelly O' March 30, 2014 at 06:17 pm
You don't have a lot of crime in Darien. Thank your lucky stars.
