You make more negative comments about police than anyone on patch. How did they strip you of your manhood that you can only make posts on an internet blog. Come to a city council meeting some day and put those words to a face and a name.

IJ-I pay their wages with my labor in private industry-so I am allowed to bi*ch-the day I no longer pay the theft that are taxes which take more than half of what I make to feed the govt beast I will stop.

Everyone that owns a home pays taxes to support city services. If you check your tax bill that amount is small compared to schools and the park district. Just curious why all the negative comments. You just ripped on Shorewood Street Dept in another post. People don't work for free. Someone has to drive that snowplow at 2:00am to make sure you get to your private industry job.
