Is the need to inform so great that we need reports of Elmhurst College students possessing small amounts of pot? With Google and internet search, now every future employer will have access to this minor indiscretion forever. Is it really worth ruining a young person's life? Wouldn't this be better served by a warning and a few hours of community service with the threat of publishing a second offense and explaining the severe consequences? Where is the compassion? Ronn Harris, Elmhurst.

I think most people know Elmhurst cops have no compassion- they'll write you up for anything and publish it.

Learn the laws and know your rights. The Elmhurst Patch is the one who requests the arrest reports and publishes it. The PD has nothing to do with what gets published and shown even in the newspapers. Everything you see in the arrest columns are under the Freedom of Information Act for all citizens for request (Even Future Employers who will run a background check.)

Hey Ronn, NEWSFLASH.....smoking, possessing, selling, growing pot is ILLEGAL! Even a smart Elmhurst College student knows this. But, they do it anyway. What ever happened to owning up to ones own mistakes. It's people or parents like you that keep turning a blind eye to issues like this. No wonder a disturbing percentage of young adults use and get hooked on drugs. Give me a break!,

Oh and to Love Elmhurst, get your facts straight. Elmhurst Police do not write you up for anything. In fact, you'd poop yourself if you knew the actual amount of "breaks" police give people every day. Grow up.
