Red Flag Alert. 4 teens (ages 17 and 18) go into Wal-Mart to purchase two BB guns at 1:00 a.m.

It's common sense what's going to happen next.

There are many parents who could give a rat's a** where there kids are. Their kids are usually the ones vandalizing or stealing from the rest of us.

Not every adult is responsible enough to have children. It's called "planned parenthood" and many fail to realize this. If you can't sacrifice your time to guide and raise offspring for 18 years, get fixed!

Am I the only one on here that thinks more than a few of these kids were crying before the pictures were taken? I haven't seen that many red eyes since the benzene linked into out local bath water a while back.

Cry babys!

Grab all the little F*C*S and put there nuts in a vise and then make them or their great parents pay every last penny for the damage they done. And then go fire the lindenhurst police chief for his stupid letter he sent out.

Is anyone here going to blame the "kids"?
At 17 years old, they knew what they were doing.

I also don't know about this "letter" people are talking about----but as far as the lake villa chief you have nothing to worry about, from what I have seen and heard he is a very agressive chief, if something happens in lake villa from vehicle windows being shot out to an armmed robbery he is going to put a 100 % into the investigation.

He will put 100 % into taking credit for all the great work everyone else did... He has managed P.O. just about every cop that has worked on these cases...

Is he related to the chief? Does it make him a bad police chief if it is is son?The mayor of Antioch's brother is a felon who did five years in prison.Does that make Larry a bad mayor?Mayor daleys son has been arrested.Is he a bad mayor?Personal lives should be kept out of politics.

I agree that personal lives should be kept out of politics - UNLESS it is a distraction from his job which is the safety of the public. Is it affecting his job performance - I dont know. Hopefully it doesnt.
