    Illinois Review ^ | October 16, 2019 A.D. | John F. Di Leo
    When I was growing up in Chicago’s northern suburbs, one of our local heroes was the late, great W. Clement Stone, founder of Combined Insurance. I recall being an awestruck college volunteer with the Young Republicans, manning the registration table at a Republican state convention, when Clem Stone came up to chat with us. His story was the stuff of legend: starting from nothing during the Great Depression, selling insurance door-to-door, and from that humble beginning, he became the multimillionaire founder of one of the great Illinois corporations. From time to time, we hear of others who also got their...

    Full header: Three Indiana Judges Face Discipline After Wild Night Ends With Fighting And Gun Shots Outside Strip Club This story comes from The weekend of May 1, Adams, Jacobs, and Bell attended the Spring Judicial Conference. After checking into their hotel, the trio downed a few Seagram Escapes, some scotch, and eventually a few beers. They went around bar hopping. They ate dinner, had some wine, played some cornhole, and tossed a few game of darts. It was the type of stuff you'd expect to occur at bars, but perhaps not from this group. They had themselves a...

    Now they don't have to worry about anyone talking about the Fight Club because their members naturally forget them. Three employees at the Danby House assisted living facility started an upper ground version of Fight Club that comes with a twist; dementia patients are their members. Marilyn Latish McKey, 32; Tonacia Yvonne Tyson, 20; Taneisha Deshawn Jordan, 26, have been charged for elder abuse and have been arrested accordingly. The report was filed in June after the appropriately named fight club leaders were accused of fighting one another and encouraging patients to fight each other. These are people whose bones...

    DES MOINES, Iowa -- Des Moines Police are investigating after a crowd of roughly 20 juveniles allegedly attacked a couple after they left a hockey game Saturday night. The victims, a Des Moines man and his girlfriend, told police they were walking home through the skywalk – an elevated passageway connecting buildings downtown – following an Iowa Wild game at Wells Fargo Arena when they came upon a large group of juveniles near the downtown YMCA.“They saw a bunch of juveniles gathered in a location and something about what they were doing didn’t seem right and she simply asked them...

    Richard Huckle, one of Britain's worst paedophiles, has been killed in his prison cell in the north of England, sources have confirmed. The 33-year-old, who was serving 22 life sentences, at Full Sutton Prison in East Yorkshire, was found dead in his cell at the weekend. Huckle, from Ashford in Kent, was jailed in 2016, after being arrested on his return to the UK from Malaysia, where he had been living and abusing children. He pleaded guilty to 71 offences involving 22 children, but it is thought there were many more children across South East Asia. Huckle was found by...

    "A man who criticized President Donald Trump’s immigration policies in the name of progressive Christianity was killed last week by an undocumented immigrant who avoided deportation by hiding in a local “sanctuary church.” Sean Buchanan, a father of five from Colorado Springs, was driving his motorcycle on Highway 83 when Miguel Ramirez Valiente swerved into his lane and killed him. The immigrant was charged with reckless driving with a revoked license. …When he killed Buchanan, Ramirez Valiente was driving with a suspended license thanks to a 2018 DUI. He was also arrested for reckless endangerment in 2011 and domestic violence...

    Two of the five men convicted in the savage Bronx slaughter of Lesandro “Junior” Guzman-Feliz showed no remorse during their sentencing Friday as they smirked for the camera and threw up Trinitarios gang signs. Jonaiki Martinez Estrella, 25, and Jose Muniz, 23, were pictured flashing the violent street gang’s signs for a Post photographer before Judge Robert Neary slammed them with hefty jail terms. The gesture which Estrella and Muniz made with their thumb, index finger, and middle finger extended, is the “seven points” sign of the ruthless Dominican gang, a police source told The Post. “I cant believe...

    LOS ANGELES (Reuters) - California moved to end the use of private, for-profit lockups in America’s largest state prison system as well as in federal immigration detention centers in the state under a measure signed into law on Friday by Governor Gavin Newsom. The new law bars the California Department of Corrections and Rehabilitation from entering into or renewing a contract with a private company to run a state prison after Jan. 1, 2020, unless needed to meet court-ordered inmate housing limits. It will ban California from incarcerating anyone in privately run facilities altogether from 2028.

    Marie Yovanovitch, the former U.S. ambassador to Ukraine, told lawmakers behind closed doors Friday that she was recalled earlier this year after “unfounded and false claims” against her, as well as continued pressure from President Trump on the State Department to remove her -- as she denied being “disloyal” to the president. “Although I understand that I served at the pleasure of the President, I was nevertheless incredulous that the U.S. government chose to remove an ambassador based, as best as I can tell, on unfounded and false claims by people with clearly questionable motives,” she said in a scathing...

    A Crockett man was taken into custody Friday night after he confessed to robbing a bank the day before his wedding so he could pay for the ring and the venue, according to Trinity County Sheriff Woody Wallace. Heath Bumpous, 36, robbed the Citizens State Bank in Groveton, implied that he had a weapon, and demanded money. He then fled with the cash and drove down back roads. Bumpous’ fiancee called him and convinced him to turn himself in to police after she saw still images of security footage on Facebook. Bumpous told authorities in Houston that they were supposed...

    Violent Crime Drops, Trump Gets No Credit On September 30, the FBI released its annual report on crime for 2018. It showed that violent crime declined over 2017 in every category except rape, where a revised definition was applied. The number of homicides declined by 6.1%; the rate went down by even more than that, to 5.0 per 100,000.The FBI’s good news about crime got very little publicity, and I can’t find a single publication that gave the Trump administration any credit for the trend. Why should they, you might ask, since homicide and other violent crimes have been declining...

    BOONSBORO, Md. (AP) — Authorities say an HIV-positive man has been charged with raping a boy on the Appalachian Trail in western Maryland. The Herald-Mail reports that 43-year-old Jason Henry Cochrane of Millersville is charged with sex abuse of a minor, second-degree rape and other counts in Washington County. A judge earlier this week ordered Cochrane held without bond while he awaits trial. Maryland Natural Resources Police said in court documents that officers were called Saturday morning to the Pine Knob Shelter on the Appalachian Trail near the border with Frederick County.

    When the FBI released its 2018 Crime Statistics on Monday, the silence from the anti-gun, anti-Second Amendment mainstream media was deafening. The Washington Post and the New York Times gave the report short shrift, while the Wall Street Journal ignored it altogether. Apparently the mainstream media isn’t interested in listening to facts and data that contradict their preconceived ideology: More guns equal more gun violence. According to the FBI, exactly the opposite is happening, and has been happening for years: The number of violent crimes committed in the United States continues to drop. Said the report, “In 2018, violent crime...

    New York Mayor Bill de Blasio’s withdrawal from the presidential race last week is a lost opportunity. A successful de Blasio effort in the Democratic primaries—his was anything but—could have sparked a necessary national debate over signs of rising disorder in American cities. We haven’t returned to the bad old days of the 1970s and 1980s. The troubles of that era had many causes: disappearing jobs, changes in social welfare policy, changes in cultural attitudes, deinstitutionalization of the mental health system, drug wars, crack cocaine, a surging crime rate—all intersecting to drain the vitality of neighborhoods and stamp countless urban...
