Last time I checked, the poor victim survived, so how is this a fatal stabbing?
Tj July 10, 2014 at 09:13 pm
Nobody ever said it was fatal-- it was little more than a pin prick. I bet it didn't even hurt. TheRead More poor "victim" was faking it so everyone feels sorry for her. Now she's got the world on a string and two poor, innocent slenderman fans are behind bars for life!
Mr Lundt June 7, 2014 at 05:22 pm
It is great to see the community rally. There will be plenty of time to exact justice---we shouldRead More now focus good thoughts on the victim.
Tass Kandle June 8, 2014 at 10:35 am
How do you even punish a 12 year old girl that stabbed one of her own best friends within an inch ofRead More her life? Unfortunately they will probably go to some institutions for a couple years then be let out. Not sure if you can fix the kind of broken those two stabbing girls are.

we've been so concerned regarding even having the Olympics in this discriminating country since theRead More beginning and hoped the us officials would have reconsidered another country option since they had plenty of time to do so! sending our athletes to compete there is so risky, ultimately risky, since even a mention of sexual preference is deadly consequences! research from native Russians of sexual preference proves that Russian government is extremely prejudice against sexual preference! Why didn't the officials of the u.s. re-direct these games to a more liberal country?! there r some u know u.s. officials! Billy jean king may be a strong ambassador but murphy's law here. when u have precaucations in your face u.s. why committees of world countries did u risk this of all goings on worldwide! omg! prayers and support are with our athletes every day there in socchi! hate to say it that may 's' if one of our kids gets jailed for even looking lgbt! omg! ab/cd
Travis Bickle January 16, 2014 at 01:28 pm
Sorry Annie but the purpose of the trip is to compete in athletic events NOT to discuss sexualRead More persuasion. Keep you sex talk to yourself nobody wants to hear about straight or gay.

@Gentlemen/folks: agreed that it seems as if calls for service appear to be higher (whether forRead More reasons of population density, population demographics, etc). My point is that from MY experience of being a resident of the area concerned is that a vast majority of people I've met or had contact with are responsible, family type folks who care about themselves and their neighborhood. I agree that there are "those elements", just as with any neighborhood, that need to be addressed. Trust me @Bob and @Come On and @c when I say I'm certainly not associated with this property in any way, however, I can see a bit of a perspective change when you only have to screen one or two tenants (for a duplex let's say) and when you have to background check what, 300+? I'm not saying that they shouldn't do their absolute best: oh heck yes they should. They should REALLY be picky Bob. I agree somewhat on the house situation, @c..it's not always easy for kids just starting out or for someone who's just starting over after a "family situation"...We've seen that happen, and the Town Homes were their "ticket back. Maybe there would have been other ways, but it worked for them at the time. I'm not taking it personally @Bob...I'm a huge believer in WFB just like you guys. Have been for a long time. As I said, it took moving here to change my perspective, and for the most part it rolls right off. But, I will say it has gotten better. I'm pleased to say that even our kids (who naturally swore in high school that the first thing they were going to do was to pack up and never come back) have come back to WFB to have their families! Not to the Town Homes, but they are in The Bay. So the Village has become a family affair again. Thanks for letting me speak folks.
Bob McBride September 28, 2013 at 11:14 am
Craig thanks for joining in. I took a ride through the area yesterday (haven't been through forRead More awhile) and it does look better than it has in the past, and certainly better than it did 10 years ago or so. I didn't really care for the use of the word "ghetto" in the first place and if anyone actually thinks it's a ghetto, they haven't been in a real ghetto. Frankly I'm more concerned about what I see going on east of Santa Monica on Henry Clay around Diversey. My wife lived in that area prior to us getting married and while the building(s) generally have been deteriorating for awhile now, the tenant base seemed relatively stable. Lately it's looking like there's a lot more turnover, a lot more general clutter (tenant related) and I've personally witnessed some activities in the area, just driving by, that would tend to lead one to believe that whomever is currently managing one or more of those buildings is a lot less picky about whom they rent to than they were in the past. It's looking a lot more junky and run down than ever.
craigrmartin September 29, 2013 at 07:58 am
@Bob - I'm well aware of the other area you're speaking of. I heartily concur with your thoughts onRead More that. My previous residence wasn't too far removed from that area and I've watched the transition there with some degree of trepidation. It may very well be management based issues, but there is definitely a change in the "tone" of that neighborhood. I think we're all of a mind that we want Bay to be safe, welcoming, stable and a good place to live. In my 20+ years it's been that, throughout all of the changes ( I kinda miss Foodtown and the video store on Hampton LOL). It really helps that we've always had forums, whether via Village Hall, The Herald, School Board meetings, Library Board, Patch, etc., to question and comment on the issues. Again, thanks for letting me "spout off". It was the "G" word that caught my attention, even though I understood the context, and forced me out of "the shadows".

What judge in their right mind is giving a sexual predator a $1000.00 cash bond? Why bother! TheseRead More judge's should be named so the next time they are up for election, they are voted out. Let's hope he/she atleast ordered the pervert to stay away from the victim. Thank God, this mother did the right thing. As painful as this must have been, she had the courage to call the police. My prayers are with the victim and her mother.
vocal local 1 September 20, 2013 at 04:37 am
The guy is still in jail thus the $1,000 cash bail has been effective. Remember, this is suspectRead More class C felony, Pictures. Did mom do the right thing by calling the police? I'm not so sure. Perhaps she should have kicked the flea out, had a talk with her daughter and moved on.
Bob McBride September 20, 2013 at 05:40 am
The daughter is underaged. The mom did the right thing. The guy has demonstrated a willingness toRead More involve himself, sexually, with minors. Even in a case where it might have been easier to kick him out and "move on", law enforcement needs to know about this guy, he definitely needs to be punished in some fashion for his actions and he needs to go on the sex offender registry.

Dude, it's not your yard anymore...it's Obama's yard. You're just a guest. His supporters areRead More entitled to what you and I have, and they let us know that every day. Think of those White farmers in South Africa. That's their mindset. Lock up everything, get an alarm system and motion lights. It's bikes now, it could be your kids and wife next. It's Obama's New World Order.

Do we know what the consequences may be? I'm sure restitution is one but I'd like to see a coupleRead More hundred hours of community service cleaning up graffiti and trash. But I'm probably being to harsh.

I do a considerable amount of biking through residential side streets in WFB, Shorewood and the EastRead More Side. I purposely stay far enough away from parked cars so that, should a door open suddenly, it's not going to be in my path. I've also been on the other side and had bicyclists come zooming up along side of my car just as I was about to open the door and get out. It's really not necessary on a side street to ride that close to parked cars. If it were me, I'd put this one on the bicyclist.
AWD August 22, 2013 at 03:18 pm
She got 'door prized'. Anyway, I always look in my rear view side mirror and make sure no bicyclistsRead More are coming up on me before I open the door. I live on one of the high traffic streets; I have to be extra careful. It’s the bicyclists Village, we just live in it.

Bob, just heard no other vehicle involved.Could you tell if the guy was black or white? I see thoseRead More brothers coming out of that Lincoln Park parking area at a high rate of speed all of the time. Probably high on crack.
Bob McBride August 20, 2013 at 11:37 am
He was white. If you didn't know there wasn't another vehicle involved, the scene didn't reallyRead More look like that. Front end of the cycle was pretty much destroyed (I've seen pictures since then that show the rear of the cycle being basically intact - couldn't see that as I went by). I'm no expert by a long margin, but it sure looks like what you might expect to see in a car/motorcycle collision that involved the cycle hitting a vehicle at a high rate of speed and the rider being thrown 50 yards away. The debris field didn't really necessarily fall into that kind of scenario, but everything else did. I suppose if you're really moving, lose it, cycle flies up in the air and comes down on the front end and bounces and skids another 50 yards on its own, that might leave a scene like that. There seemed to be enough traffic, both car and pedestrian, in the form of golfers, in the area that someone should have seen it happen.
