Johnny O'Bloggin's Musical Monday

At the age of 8, I was able to see the beauty in this piece. It was the first song I learned to play on the piano. It took me 9 months. By the time I was 26, I realized just how special, Classical music is. No other music out there can move me in the same way, and the amazing part is that, it's all instrumental. I hope you guys enjoy my new posts.

Ludwig, you are the man.

Merry Christmas Marine.....


Story Image
Story ImageKreml with his mom, Lisa Kreml, standing in front of the Christmas tree she has left decorated in the family room of their New Lenox home so Kreml can celebrate the holidays he missed with his family. | Ginger Brashinger~For Sun-Times Media



The Christmas tree was waiting, and so was his Jack Russell terrier, Amico, but Marine Pvt. Jordan Kreml didn’t know he’d be getting an all-American escort home to see them.
Neither did his mom.
“When I saw those fire trucks meet us, I just lost it,” Lisa Kreml said.
She said they didn’t expect a half dozen Frankfort and New Lenox Fire Protection District vehicles to escort them, lights blazing, all the way down Interstate 80 to Kreml’s New Lenox home, where about 70 friends and family awaited his arrival. About half of them were his excited Frankfort Fire Cadet team members.
Kreml thought he was just returning home for a 10-day leave from basic training at the Marine Corps Recruit Depot in San Diego, looking forward to spending time with family and friends, making up the missed holidays and eating all of his favorite foods, Kreml said.
But those who know Kreml said he deserved to be honored for his commitment.
“He’s definitely a leader,” said Lt. Jeff Otte, of the Frankfort Fire Protection District.
As Kreml’s senior cadet advisor, Otte said he has known Kreml since he joined the program at 15 years old and became a “very active” cadet, volunteering as mentor to a special needs cadet for two years and rising to the rank of captain.
Lincoln-Way Central High School friend and fellow fire cadet Luke Stock, 20, said it was Kreml who encouraged him to join the cadet program more than a year ago, creating a career path as a firefighter for Stock.
“I’ve always known that he’s Marine material,” Stock said about his best friend’s decision to enlist. “No one has more honor and more pride in what he does than Jordan.”
Lisa Kreml and her sister, Kathy Beaupre, of New Lenox, agreed that Kreml’s choice was no surprise.
“He’s always wanted to be in the service, always,” Lisa Kreml said. She said her son tried to talk her into early enlistment when he was 17 years old but she made him wait.
Kreml, 19, enlisted in July 2011.
“This has been his internal drive, his passion,” Beaupre said. “He absolutely believes in honor, courage and commitment.”
Beaupre said Kreml’s accomplishments in basic training include an “Expert Shooter” medal and first place with his team in final skills competition.
Kreml will remain in Illinois as a recruiter’s assistant for 14 days following his leave before reporting to Marine Corps Base Camp Pendleton in California for continued training.
Kreml said he will likely be deployed to Afghanistan in November.
As for Kreml’s reasons for his choices in serving community and country, Kreml said, “I’ve just always liked to help wherever I can lend a helping hand.”


Have a Merry Christmas Pvt Kreml. We will be praying for a successful enlistment, and a safe return.

Johnny O'Bloggin's Funny Ass Friday ........................

I'd just come out of the shop with a meat and potato pie, large chips, mushy peas & a jumbo sausage. A poor homeless man sat there and said 'I've not eaten for two days.' I told him, 'I wish I had your will power'.

I got Wacken, but what else is he saying?

U.S. Navy Petty Officer 2nd Class Scott Schaefer said he “just wanted to kind of settle down a bit” when he returned to his family in New Lenox, following a 10-month tour of duty in Afghanistan.
Pearl and Bob Schaefer, of Kankakee, said their son “didn’t want any hoopla” when he came home.
To that end, Schaefer was vague about his arrival date, so much so that his wife, Kristin, thought he was trying to surprise her.
That didn’t stop family and friends, including local veterans’ organizations, Scout troops, village officials, Soldiers Guardian Angels and Warriors Watch Riders from throwing Schaefer a red, white, and blue welcome in the rotunda of the New Lenox Village Hall on Thursday night.
Dan Martin, public safety division chief of the New Lenox Police Department, said he wasn’t going to let a member of the Community Emergency Response Team return from military service without a welcome home celebration when he found out Schaefer had “come into town unexpectedly.”
“By doing this, we’re trying to show our appreciation,” Martin said. “We’re all here enjoying our freedoms while he’s over there sacrificing time with his family for us.”
Schaefer said the hardest part was leaving his family at home, knowing his wife had all the responsibilities, especially in raising their son, Jeremy, 8.
“The toughest job in the Navy is being a Navy wife,” Scott Schaefer said. “She’s a trooper.”
“It’s been hard,” Kristin Schaefer said. “I’ve had the most amazing help from friends and family and neighbors.”
About 200 of them showed up to greet Schaefer when he arrived for a regularly scheduled response team meeting at village hall, clearly unaware of the celebration in his honor.
As the “Star-Spangled Banner” played, the Lincoln-Way High School ROTC escorted Schaefer down the winding stairs to a staging area where he was welcomed by Mayor Tim Baldermann. Schaefer received everything from certificates of appreciation and proclamations to challenge coins and Girl Scout cookies.
“I was very surprised,” Schaefer said.
The son of a Viet Nam Purple Heart veteran, Schaefer said “service to my country” was the main reason he joined the military.
”It was also a chance to see the world,” Schaefer said. “I’ve gotten to see all of it.”
Schaefer, 48, has served about 10 years in the Navy over three separate enlistments since 1982. His second re-enlistment came shortly after 9/11, “the tipping point” in his decision to rejoin the Navy.
After his third re-enlistment in 2008, Schaefer was trained in security forces. In 2011, he was deployed to Afghanistan as part of a Navy MP brigade with the U.S. Army in detainee operations.
Schaefer is currently a Metra employee. He plans to continue to serve in the Navy Reserves at the Great Lakes Naval Station.

LET FREEDOM RING..........WITH A SHOTGUN BLAST!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

I missed championship Sunday this past week. Well worth it. Machine Head played the House of Blues. I fell in love with this band when they put out their first album. It was 1994, I was 17.  I've seen them 13 times before, but I have never seen them as a headliner. Two and a half hours later, I was in head banging bliss. I was 17 again

Everytime I go to see one of my concerts, I always come home sweaty, sometimes bloody, and always limping the next day. The Queen always asks, "Was it worth it?". My reply is always the same, "Goddamn right it was worth it". My wife is not a fan of Machine Head, or bands of that genre, as I am not a fan of Bon Jovi, and such groups. So, in 7 years, we have never been to concert together. Sunday night, she finally asked me, "I wish I could see what goes on at these shows". Thanks to Youtube, she found out.

Freedom of the Press.........Revisited

So, I found something interesting in the Freedom of the Press debate. It was argued that the Conservative media is bias. Too the point, that the Liberal media is not. It was also stated that blogs are considered Press.

Under those circumstances, I have an interesting note. TGP recently published a post about Robert E. Lee. There was some backlash. Most notably from Mud_Rake.

Speaking of warmongering…
On one of the right-wing posse’s blog this AM is a ‘Happy Birthday’ to Robert E. Lee. I’m waiting for the Confederate Flag to be honored next.
Yet, speaking of warmongering, the blog host, referring to Lee said this:
Had he followed up his early victories with an immediate invasion of the North, we might not have to tolerate such atrocities as federally mandated speed limits or seat belt laws.
Gulp!
Well, folks, there you go. Adolescent mind, man’s body
So, this is a comment from one of his Posts. Here is another comment..........
Hello Muddy,
“Had he followed up his early victories with an immediate invasion of the North, we might not have to tolerate such atrocities as federally mandated speed limits or seat belt laws.” (WTF!!!)
Robert E. Lee did follow up with an immediate invasion into the North with mass forces secured by his early victories…. It was called “The Battle of Gettysburg!!” (No wonder I see you taking this site towards an Educational trend. There is obviously a need!)
Now the befuddling question is how does one’s mind link Robert E. Lee to not having federally mandated speed limits or seat belt laws….as if this is a bad thing? Is it because of “State’s Rights” over riding “Federal Government Laws” if the Confederacy had held out and secured a victory? Here is a perfect example of the “Simple Minds” reference that was the topic in my latest posting on my site. And They Allow These People To Vote!
Consevative media outlets are bias? This is awesome, a perfect example. Here is  TGP's original post
On January 19th, 1807, Robert E. Lee entered the world, the son of General "Lighthorse Harry" Lee, one of George Washington's greatest assets.  He was raised as a Southern gentleman, and entered West Point in 1825.

Because of the history lessons of our liberal school teachers, most Americans misunderstand Robert E. Lee.  Most Americans don't realize how great a man he was.  Another thing most Americans don't realize is that Lee did not want to make war on the United States.  Had his own home state of Virginia not seceded, Lee would have been the only General that Abraham Lincoln needed to finish off the Civil War.  But because Lee could not fire on his fellow Virginians, Lincoln would go through seven Generals before finding a man who could whip Lee in his weakened state.

Some of Lee's tactics are still used today.  He was a brilliant tactician, but for his hesitance to attack the North. Had he followed up his early victories with an immediate invasion of the North, we might not have to tolerate such atrocities as federally mandated speed limits or seat belt laws.  But Lee only wanted the Northern Aggressors to leave his poor Virginia alone.
Here is how I interpret it.  TGP writes a piece on how Robert E. Lee was a great soldier, and leader. He was a man who chose State over country. Which is something that Liberal bloggers do on a daily basis, as long as it fits into their retoric.
A liberal Blog-Host posts a comment, that is not entirely true, choosing specific "PARTS". Readers buy wholeheartidly into it. How's that for bias?

Right of the people to peaceably assemble and to petition the government redress of grievances.....

I combined the last two into one post. Does anyone have any starting points. How about the OWS crowd, or the Tea Party crowd? Anyone have any talking points........................
I read a few blogs that were posting youtube videos of Policeman abusing their power on the OWS crowd. While this may be true, I was not there. But I was somewhat at the Chicago protests. Meaning I walked by them everyday for about three weeks. Not to mention the amount of Chicago policemen that I know. I can tell you one thing. They were not all peaceful. I remember one Liberal blogger asking, "Can you really judge a group of people by the action of a few?".....................
My answer is quite simply, YES. Take me for instance. I have been judged, or shall I say my political and social believes have been judged by the company that I keep. Even the way that I look is judged. When I spent the better part of three years in court, my attorney advised me to grow my hear, and make sure my tattoos were covered.. When I asked why, she simply replied, "Because you look like a White Suprematist.".......
Anyway, Back to my point, Yes you are judged. But I am proud of Chicago for having very few youtube OWS crowd incidents. We have the right to PEACABLY assemble. After that, fuck 'em.................

Don't forget about Beat-Off of the month.........

I ended the contest early in December, so people may have forgotten about it. Feel free to make some suggestions........

Jonathan Metzger had a smile “that could melt your heart,” his mother said Monday.
He had reason to show it often. The Chicago Heights native and graduate of Rich South High School was a decorated veteran, an accomplished weightlifter, an outdoors enthusiast and a friend to many.
“Everyone who met Jon liked him,” his mother, Jackie Metzger, of St. Anne, Ill., said. “He loved children, his country and his family.”
The staff sergeant was among four members of the Indiana Army National Guard who were killed Jan. 6 in Afghanistan when their vehicle struck a roadside bomb as they were working to clear a supply route of the improvised bombs.
Mr. Metzger, 32, who lived in Indianapolis, played football during his freshman year at Rich South but was injured and dedicated himself to weightlifting, Jackie Metzger said.
At 16, he took first place in the World Chicago Bench Press Championship in 1996 and holds a world record for 16- to 17-year-olds for bench-pressing 336 1/2 pounds, according to www.drugfreepowerlifting.com.
It was during high school when Mr. Metzger decided he wanted to join the Marines, enlisting after graduating from Rich South in 1998, his mom said.
After leaving the Marine Corps in 2005, Mr. Metzger joined the Indiana Army National Guard in 2006. He served in Operation Iraqi Freedom in 2008 and volunteered in November to be deployed in Afghanistan with the 713th Sapper Engineering Company.
Indiana Adjutant General Martin Umbarger said Mr. Metzger and the other three members of the unit who were killed were combat engineers who specialized in clearing major supply routes. The others who died were Spc. Brian J. Leonhardt, 21, of Merrillville, Ind.; Spc. Robert Tauteris Jr., 44, of Hamlet, Ind.; and Spc. Christopher A. Patterson, 20, of Aurora.
“They’re the first ones to go out to make sure the route can be used, so it’s a very important mission — but it’s also extremely dangerous,” Umbarger said. “We will honor their sacrifice and always remember them.”
Visitation is from 4 to 8 p.m. (EST) Wednesday and Thursday at G. H. Herrmann Greenwood Funeral Home, 1605 S. State Road 135 in Greenwood.
The funeral will be at 1 p.m. Friday at Indian Creek Christian Church, 6430 Franklin Road, Indianapolis. Mr. Metzger’s uncle, the Rev. William Metzger, of Holy Cross Lutheran Church in Cary, Ill., will officiate.
Interment will be at The Field of Heroes at The Gardens at Olive Branch Cemetery, State Road 135 and Olive Branch Road, in Greenwood.
Besides his mother, Mr. Metzger is survived by his wife, Erica; his father, Jim; a brother, Jeremy Metzger, of Bradley; and a sister, Julie Breazeale, of Cherry Point, N.C.
Online condolences can be shared at www.ghherrmann.com


I actually met Jon at the  Bench Press competition mentioned in the article. We had alot in common, since we were both from the South Side. And we were both Jon's, without the H. He was a great kid back then, and obviously grew up to be quite an outstanding young man. You will be missed Jonathan Metzger, and thank you so much for defending my Liberty. I will forever be grateful.......

The best joke today was when you deleted mud_PILE's post for not being funny.

What a bunch of wusses!

JOB- I'm gone and so are you

The first comment was from his blog today. The second was from my Funny Ass Friday post.
I think it's kind of funny, it seems like he got so mad. He got mad, because he could not follow instructions laid out in my "New Year's Resolution" Post.  Oh well.

Mud- If this reaches you, (and I'm sure it will) no worries Brother. You are always welcome here. You just need to stay off of "Funny Ass Friday" threads. Unless you have a joke of course. However, you are allowed to say whether you find a joke funny or not. I will be checking in from time to time. If Dottie, or EOK writes something, I'll write a comment on their blog. Maybe your next post could be about tolerance? LOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLOLLOLOLOLOLOOO

Tebowmania comes to an end........

In a way, I'm kind of happy. I'm sick of hearing from Conservatives putting God into football, and Liberals saying God let Tebow down. It's a shame really, because this kid has never done anything to anyone. He has beliefs, and he thinks those beliefs make him a good person. I've said time and time again, their is nothing wrong with that.

The Broncos were outclassed last night. They weren't beaten by a lack of Christ, or anything else other-worldly. They were beaten by a Quaterback who has 3 championship rings already. So, what happens from here?

I don't know. There's alot of intangibles. Tebow's game last night was only his 14 career start. In a two year period. And remember, he had little pre-season this year. I'm hoping he can improve his mechanics, and enters next year as the starter. Say what you will about him, or his beliefs. But he is the only NFL starting Quarterback, that I wouldn't mind my Daughter drawing inspiration from. Since their are so few, I truly hope he succeeds......................................................................

The South Side Irish St. Patrick's Day Parade is set to return this year. | File photo

Nearly three years after it was scrapped because it had morphed into a beer-drenched, arrest-filled nightmare for Chicago’s 19th Ward, the South Side Irish St. Patrick’s Day Parade appears to be coming back.
The Chicago Department of Transportation has issued a permit to the parade committee, and the parade again will march down Western Avenue on March 11, committee chairman Joe Connelly said late Friday. Organizers vow the parade will be family-friendly with a zero-tolerance policy for alcohol use by anyone.
Chicago’s move to approve the parade’s permit could be considered surprising because Ald. Matt O’Shea (19th) staunchly opposed the plan and even wrote Mayor Rahm Emanuel in an effort to block its return. On Monday, O’Shea sent a letter to Emanuel expressing his dissatisfaction with recent parades which, he wrote, had become “rowdy, drunken, and often violent.”
But after receiving assurances from the parade committee that strict crowd control policies would be in place, the city approved the permit Thursday, Department of Transportation spokesman Pete Scales said.
“We share the same concerns as Alderman O’Shea,” Scales said. “The parade committee needs to work with the police to come up with a real security plan that ensures the safety of the neighborhood during the event.”
The parade committee is well aware of safety concerns, Connelly said, and has hired a private security firm to work with Chicago police during the parade. Local merchants donated $80,000 to hire S3 Safety Service Systems, a company that provides security for Bears games, Connelly said.
“Safety is paramount to our plan,” Connelly said. “We are serious about having a zero-tolerance alcohol police, and that’s for everybody. Our intent is to have an alcohol-free parade.”
Police and the security company will install “an exterior boundary” for the parade route, he said. Coolers and bags will be checked for alcoholic beverages, he said.
“It’s no different than what they do at Taste of Chicago,” he said.
O’Shea lambasted the committee in an email letter sent Friday to ward residents, saying the security plan consisted of a single sheet of paper with about a dozen bullet points. Connelly, however, said their plan is “30 to 40 pages long.”
After consulting police officials, O’Shea concluded that “this plan is well-intentioned, but terribly insufficient and very difficult to execute.”
O’Shea also wrote the parade cost taxpayers more than $200,000 in 2009. Fundraisers will be held to cover city fees that Connelly said could be about $60,000.
O’Shea, who could not be reached for comment late Friday, did not pull punches in his letter to the mayor, calling the parade “a sometimes lawless event fueled by public drunkenness.” O’Shea wrote that the parade brings 300,000 to 340,000 people “into a quiet neighborhood that is not designed to handle large crowds.”
“Traffic shut down on virtually all streets within a mile of the parade route. Hundreds of school buses clog side streets. Most of the buses are chartered by bars from other areas, as well as student groups from college campuses stretching from Iowa to Michigan. Residents of the blocks surrounding the route witness public urination, sexual activity, vomiting, fights, and teens and young adults passed out from intoxication on front lawns, in the light of day, up and down our city streets and alleys,” O’Shea wrote.
Parade committee member Jim Sheahen said organizers are aware of O’Shea’s concerns but will work with police.
After the last parade resulted in dozens of arrests, the committee decided to end the parade and focus on a family fest at the Beverly Arts Center, 2407 W. 111th St. The festival was a hit, Connelly said, and got committee members thinking about resurrecting the parade.
“This is not something we did overnight. We critically looked at the parade for all its good and all its faults,” Connelly said. “Safety is the No. 1 concern. It has to be. This is where we live.”
In the end, the benefits of hosting the parade outweighed the possible negatives.
“We see the parade as being vital to the fabric of the Beverly/Morgan Park neighborhood,” Connelly said. “It’s who we are, and it creates an opportunity to have a big picture mindset.”
Bill Figel, president of the Beverly Arts Center, said the family fest will be held March 9-11.
Margaret Schroeder, president of the Mount Greenwood Residents Association, said she’s thrilled the parade is returning, and said most Mount Greenwood residents would agree with her. She’s willing “to serve on any committee to make sure nobody (urinates) on anybody’s lawn.”
“I know people who live on the parade route who miss it. But they don’t miss the unruly, drunken stupors,” Schroeder said. “We want the parade back, but as a neighborhood parade.”


Princess O'Bloggin was taken to the parade 3 years ago, when she was 4 years old. She loved it, then it was cancelled. Maybe this time, the city of Chicago can get it right.

Are blogs considered Press? Should newspapers be held accountable for liable? I don't really know what we could discuss with this one. So, if anyone has any ideas for discussion. Please feel free to start.

The men and women inside William Martin VFW Post 725 in Mokena bowed their heads, offering a prayer for the safe arrival home of military personnel serving overseas.
Among them Saturday afternoon were Daniel Koch and Amanda Lempera, both sergeants in the U.S. Army Reserve who returned to the Southland just before Christmas after being deployed to Afghanistan.
After words of prayer and thanks and a presentation by Koch and Lempera to their parents of U.S. flags that had been flown over the soldiers’ bases in Afghanistan, Lempera issued the marching orders.
“Let’s party,” she yelled.
It was, after all, a celebratory homecoming for the pair, who were reuniting with family and friends they hadn’t seen in many months.
They began dating after they graduated from Lincoln-Way Central High School and most recently served together in the same reserve unit.
Koch enlisted in the Army after he graduated in 2001 and saw three tours of duty overseas — twice deployed to Iraq and then to Afghanistan last March.
Lempera, from Manhattan, joined the reserves after she graduated in 2002, and in addition to Afghanistan, she also had a tour of duty in Iraq.
“It’s nice to be back,” she said.
While they were able to call home frequently while overseas, they couldn’t tell their families exactly where they were, or what they were doing. Donna Lempera said her daughter left for her most recent deployment nearly a year ago.
“It’s the longest we’ve ever gone without seeing each other,” she said.
Amanda is Donna and her husband’s only child, and Donna said she was a bit apprehensive at first when her daughter told her she was joining the Army.
“There’s always a degree of nervousness,” she said. “You don’t know what to expect.”
While she was able to communicate with her family frequently, Amanda Lempera said that “talking on the phone is not the same” as seeing them in person.
Koch’s parents, who live in Mokena, sent care packages to their son — bags of Doritos and the latest movies on DVD — and talked frequently, his father, Mike, said. They both enjoy hunting, and that often worked its way into the discussion, although Mike Koch broke his left arm last month, ending any father-son hunting excursions for a while.
Both military police officers in the reserves, Koch, 29, is studying toward a degree in criminal justice, while Lempera, 27, is working on her master’s degree in modern world history. They live in Frankfort, although they are attending school downstate.
Is an engagement in their future?
“Maybe,” Koch said.
Members of the Soldiers Guardian Angels and Warriors’ Watch Riders provided a motorcycle escort for Koch and Lempera from Frankfort to the VFW post.
The convoy also included Army trucks owned by members of a group that restores antique military vehicles. One of its members is Mokena Mayor Joe Werner.
The 21/2-ton truck he bought from a farmer in December 2009 led the convoy, and its one of several military vehicles he owns, including an ambulance he’s currently refurbishing. The M35A2 cargo truck, known as a “deuce and a half,” commemorates Werner’s father and father-in-law, bearing the numbers of the military they served in.

REMEMBER.............Their is a resolution in place.


 

A husband and wife were sitting watching a TV program about psychology and explaining the phenomenon of "mixed emotions".
The husband turned to his wife and said, "Honey, that is a bunch of crap. I bet you can't tell me anything that will make me happy and sad at the same time. "She said: "Out of all your friends, you have the biggest dick."

Sorry guys, but I did not want those images here anymore

                         The photo in exhibit B was taken on American soil at  Colonista High School in Montebello, California

I do find Exhibit A to be dispicable. I can see how people could become offended. I can see a decent arguement made for this retard committing a hate crime.

Now look at Exhibit B. That goes beyond hate. That photo is down right treasonist. These anchor babies did something that is very hard to do. They offended me.             

A test dedicated to CS

At about 7 P.M. CST. I will be posting a couple of pictures. I'm curious, which one you'll find more offensive.

First Amendment: Freedom of Speech...........

  In my opinion, this freedom is the most important. Yet, it will induce the most anger of any other Amendments. It also requires the most tolerance.
  Someone (H-Nox, I believe) brought up the burning of our flag. This is a perfect example, because it infuriates me, yet I have to respect the rights of this so-called person.
  Of course we have also heard many court cases involving free speech. Check out U.S. v Eichmann (1990). The Supreme court said, Government's interest cannot justify its infringement on First Amendment rights. This conclusion will not be reassessed in light of Congress' recent recognition of a purported "national consensus" favoring a prohibition on flag-burning, since any suggestion that the Government's interest in suppressing speech becomes more weighty as popular opposition to that speech grows is foreign to the First Amendment. While flag desecration -- like virulent ethnic and religious epithets, vulgar repudiations of the draft, and scurrilous caricatures -- is deeply offensive to many, the Government may not prohibit the expression of an idea simply because society finds the idea itself offensive or disagreeable.
  So, there it is in black and white (Red in this case).
  Free speech protects flag burning, hate-speech, and even groups such as NAMBLA are protected to some degree. But, it has to be tolerated. As much as it pains me, you can not suppress somebodies rights, because if you do, you are opening the door for your own rights to be suppressed.
  And that my friends, is the hard part of living in a free society.

Let's ring in the New Year.......Chicago style...........

"A 1-day-old baby boy was found in a trash bin Sunday night in Country Club Hills and was later pronounced dead.
The infant was found in a trash bin at 17895 Huntleigh Court in Country Club Hills and was pronounced dead at Advocate South Suburban Hospital in Hazel Crest at 8:17 p.m., according to the Cook County Medical Examiner’s office. An autopsy is scheduled for later Monday.
Country Club Hills police could not provide additional details Monday morning"

What is particularly disturbing about this, is that in Illinois, you are allowed to drop your baby off to any Police, Fire, Church, or hospital locations, with no repercussions. They passed this law years back, so this disgusting act would not happen. Just goes to show, no law can turn a piece of shit, into a decent person.
