Looks like this kid has been watching to way too much Real Jersey Housewives. This is REAL life, kid, and you committed a battery. The show (and all TV) is fake.
Jim Court January 25, 2012 at 06:07 PM
Must have been a "hot" video since he was "baked" in the parking spot.
Stewart Levine January 25, 2012 at 07:54 PM
when life is that miserable for someone, they are suffering emotional hardships, financial hardships, they will resort to substance abuse as a means of coping. the punishments for DUI's today are very very harsh. I'm zero tolerance on DUI's but i think that the constant re-occurrence of these is a result of our whole society being essentially DUI, so to speak. even if one doesn't drink, this country needs a highly intelligent and educated public who can fight back against fascist and tyrannical laws, and the looting of our money collectively on a grand scale. Don't be a talking animal, don't succumb to substance abuse, illiteracy, financial rape, police and government abuse of power, and power grabs. It's all a dog and pony show, we need real intellectual minds to address these problems. DUI's are a tip of the iceberg, they highlight the real suffering and pain someone is actually consciously or unconsciously going through. Break free from Herd Thought, Hive Mentality, Group Think. http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=CaUbSwkcHz4

Hey Stewart did you pop acid when you were a teenager? The punishment for DUI is harsh? Do you think getting killed or maimed for life by a drunk driver is not suffering? You sound like a typical anarchist, if not then you are a liberal make excuse for every crime or addiction in this world.
Stewart Levine January 26, 2012 at 11:33 AM
Hey James, No I didn't Pop Acid as a teenager. Perhaps someone as immature as yourself may have though. You seem a little edgy and quick to bash anyone whose viewpoint is out of line with your own, and not properly understood by yourself either. Your compartmentalized educational degree does not make you intelligent, and your childish insults, arrogance and bias has no merit as an appropriate comment on here to the article above. There was no need for derogatory rhetorical questions of conversational transference either. I'm flagging your response as inappropriate because of the nature of your response, but i will respond to you never the less. I do think getting killed or maimed by a drunk driver is awful, and devastating. though pain and suffering is not a one way street. I've come to know a few individuals who have received DUI's and have shared their experience. I don't believe you truly know the extent of ridicule, public humiliation, and financial problems one goes through. The current method of crime and punishment does not address the underlying fundamental cause of DUI's. Therefore you suffer from flawed logic. read my comment again I said I'm zero tolerance on dui's. perhaps you skipped over that and were offended by other views I expressed. I don't appreciate the labels either James, I don't subscribe to any of them you've mentioned. Sorry if that upsets you further.
James Heartferd January 27, 2012 at 03:28 AM
Hey Stew, stop blaming others. Your delusional projection, despite superior evidence that you have no idea about the real world we live in, is plainly stated on most of your comments you have made on the Patch. I do believe that because of your astral projection, and your narcissistic defense mechanism, you would like to have your projective Identification unto others. In plain language stop making excuses about people that break the law. The underlying fundamental of DUI's for an offender is that they do not care about others, there are other way of getting home if you are inebriated. Zero tolerance? Do you know the meaning? Zero tolerance means that certain actions will absolutely not be tolerated under any circumstances. Soooooo what's your problem Stew baby?
Mat Macchione January 27, 2012 at 07:30 AM
Zero Tolerance DUI if that is what you are referring to is a teenager UNDER the usually LEGAL limit to be driving under. So in harsh reality James your arrogance has directed you to stupidity because a zero tolerance DUI is a bogus conviction saying well your too young too drink, but thanks for doing it responsibly were gunna arrest you anyways. CLEARLY neither of you understands what a zero tolerance DUI is bc it has nothing to do with anything in this article. These DUIs are absolute ludicrous and just an easy way to get more revenue, Real DUI arrests should be handled as handled that is that. Find a ride or stay where you are. I'm so sick of the elmhurst police department. They are constantly picking on young teens claiming they are "protecting and serving". I mean... that is their motto, right? Yet in Dupage County jail you will find kids dangerously withdrawing from heroin and officers ignore it. Way to protective and serve boys.
Jim Court January 27, 2012 at 04:23 PM
Our society needs to approach the "War of Drugs, not from a strictly legal and punitive approach. This has not worked and will never work. This "War" is a complete failure and only serves the self interest of the legal system and all those who benefit from it. Politicians pander to a populace that seeks simple solutions to a complex problem. Treatment, education, and social pressure, along with a realignment of our moral compass is the only way to solve this problem. Our nation has grown increasingly narcissistic and even sociopathic. I, me, mine. It makes me sick.
Stewart Levine January 29, 2012 at 05:05 AM
I agree with Mat Macchione, and Jim. We are suffering from a bad case of communism and fascism in this country. It is not being addressed at the state or local level because people are not being fairly represented. We are surely being taxed enough though. Taxed so much you don't even know you are being taxed, it's called inflation. wait till gas is at $10.00 a gallon, because we are in another 10-20 year war with Iran, which everyone acts like its going to be like Iraq. No it's 1/3rd the size of the entire united states including alaska and hawaii. They have a military, probably have biological and chemical weapons, and they are totally capable of alot. We are completely instigating it, and when the economy is crushed further than it already is which is hard to imagine what that will be like.. you won't see dui's anymore, probably just be starving people and homeless people on the streets and nothing but dope fiends. these kids dont have a chance. the system knows they are easy targets too, so it puts them in the cross hairs.
James Heartferd January 29, 2012 at 06:23 AM
Stew you agree with what? Reading your comments we have no hope in this world. I have an idea for you, why don't you purchase the nuclear fallout shelter in Ben Allison park, then invite your nihilistic friends that have been inluenced by Nietzsche's Wahnbriefe writings. Matt you are lost in space!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! Until my last breath I will be thankfull for everything that I have. Thank you U.S.A you are the best.
Jim Court January 29, 2012 at 02:18 PM
James, A true authoritarian mindset.
Stewart Levine January 30, 2012 at 05:08 AM
I agree Jim. I can see he got a good lethal dose of state based conditioning and indoctrination called an education over there at Columbia University in NY. That brain of his must have plenty of plastic particulates in it and have been stirred like a cup of coffee. Wouldn't surprise me if he had a mentor similar to something of the likes of Jerry Sandusky from the look of his photo. Usually it's in College is where they experiment and 'find' themselves. Anytime you are in any form of institutional setting whether it is educational, corrections or some other, they love to juice the food up with plenty of synthetic estrogens like Bisphenol-A and other assorted nasties, like fluoride, lithium, genetically modified soybeans or grade F meat with grade A sauce. I'm assuming when they let him out, err i mean he 'graduated' with his 100k in student loans and a piece of paper, must be where 'pop acid' and 'Nietzsche's' insinuations came from. it probably felt like an acid trip being let loose out of the gates. Hell pharmaceuticals these days aren't too far off from that sh!t. I see guys like him all the time when i'm driving, usually they are picking their nose and on a cell phone, trying to down some Taco Bell, looking like they drank a few too many 5hr energy drinks. hell james now you are starting to give me the idea that DUI's might not be so bad after all if they gave them to the right people. Hope you find a job soon. If you can't, try craigslist you'd make a great dog walker.
Selena Wayne January 31, 2012 at 11:02 PM
Wow, these are interesting comments! Fascism, communism, government abuse of power? You guys have been watching too much V for Vendetta. I think its ridiculous to compare our current laws to fascism and communism. To make such comments truly displays lack of intelligence. Let me just say this, anyone who drives under the influence, kills innocent by-standers, and gets slapped with the DUI deserves every ounce of post-incident pain they suffer-- regardless of whether or not they are underage. Some may say this is heartless, but I say this is justice taking its natural course; should we say "an eye for an eye"? Based on the majority of these comments, the individuals behind them don't have the slightest grasp on the gravity the situation. It sounds like the only who actually is knowledgeable and has his head on straight in this conversation is James. The rest of you fellas maybe should open your minds up to the fact that alcohol problems and the attitudes that have evolved over time in relationship to alcohol problems are major social issues and don't have anything to do with a government power struggles. The laws we have are the direct result of failure of other methods and solutions that were attempted over the span of our society's history. So, once again, its not as simple as some of you delusional feeble-minded individuals purpose. We currently have no other choice but to have zero tolerance and harsh DUI laws.
Jim Court February 01, 2012 at 02:32 AM
James and Selena, Two cartoonish figures, both blessed with strong degree's and extraordinary intelligence that implies that their opinions cannot be challenged by lessor mortals. Amazing. How foolish to think that rights and civil liberties are being trampled on. How foolish to be concerned by the paramilitary attitude and appearance of Police departments. Just because history has repeatedly produced repressive and authoritarian governments has no bearing in America. How dare anyone challenge the infinite wisdom of our government. Fascism and communism. Foreign concepts. Drink any alcohol and you should be shot on the spot. You liberals make me sick ! I am joining ranks with "James" and Selena". We are prefect. Only our opinion matters. You are all fools. What a JOKE.
James Heartferd February 01, 2012 at 06:08 AM
No not all fools just two, Jimmy and Stewy. Hubert H Humphrey stated “We believe that to err is human. To blame it on someone else is politics.” This is why I started to answer the Patch. Due to political losers who love to blame others for their screwed up life. There is danger in the habit of blaming others; it soon becomes a breeding ground for other negative tendencies such as holding a grudge, resenting, anger, self pity, etc. All this is cancerous and will slowly eat up your general well being over a period of time. Jimmy and Stewy, suffer what is called ‘victim’ mentality. Listen I do care about you guys, please get rid of the fact that you think that your life sucks because other people make your life suck. YOU are responsible for your life, and nobody else. But you’ve been hiding from that responsibility. You’ve been blaming your unhappiness and incompetence on others. It’s time to stop blaming others and taking responsibility for your own life. That’s when you really start to live. Stop Being A Wuss – Take Control Of Your Life. Taking responsibility for your life is scary, no doubt. It places a big bulls eye on your ego, and exposes your ego to *shudder* failure. Blaming others because you have screwed up your life is socially contagious, according to a new study. The result can be detrimental to everyone involved, particularly in a small town like Elmhurst, researchers say. Hey guys sorry that you live miserable.
James Heartferd February 01, 2012 at 06:09 AM
Hey guys I wrote the last comment in LOVE!
Jim Court February 01, 2012 at 01:33 PM
I live a very happy and contented life. Being concerned about the stater of our Country or local politics is simply being a good and concerned citizen. Maybe I should worship at the alter of sports, reality TV, and celebrity. I forgot, your superior "intellect" should make me withdraw in order to not be put down and not have my self esteem shattered. Funny. I have asked Stew to meet for coffee although he never responded. I will make the same offer for yo and even Selena. I do not mind people who honestly disagree with me. Being open minded is a positive characteristic. Don't worry, if you decline I will not suffer from rejection. If you do show up, you can even wear a uniform.
