I love jokes...dont get me wrong. Just woke up to another 'shots fired' during the night again in the news.

I am very active in our neighborhood watch and know more than the average person what goes on in Rockford. Many shots fired are not reported by the media

I also joined the Citizens Police Academy to learn the ins and outs of the police dept. It is a 6 week course. Afterwards we can volunteer within the police dept

Diane, I am sorry if the joke offended you. I did put it into the "just for fun..." topic heading, hoping it would be taken in the light it was meant. I also noted that it was not actually written by me. Of course crime is not funny, but we all should know that in order for a joke to be funny it has to have some have some truth to it. The truth is then looked at in a way with a twist to it that makes one see some sort of humor to it. Apparently the truth hit too close to home for you so that you were unable to find any humor in it. So once again I am sorry.

Edited to add: sorry to any one else who finds it offensive, but it was in the Joke section.

A true comedy situation is always based on something done at the expense of another. Actually, comedy is a sin according to some. It is truely funny if it happens to someone else. It is part of our human nature. Comedy always works better if it is done between people of the same culture and values. When the liberals took over the corporation that I worked for, we had classes on proper corporate etiquette. They taught us to ask permission to tell a joke or funny story. First we had to inform everyone who was present the subject matter involved. Then we had to be sensitive as we were telling it and stop at the first hint of objection. We also had to accept the responsibility that if we hurt anyone's feelings, we were subject to reprimand and eventually job loss. Needless to say, it took a lot of fun out of the work place. I like this blog because conservatives are not as thin skinned and we can tell jokes without fear. I can enjoy comedy. I sure hope it remains that way . . .

it was a joke.... crime is NOT funny, I get it but it was a joke.

Do you realize that Illinois has the HIGHEST crime rate and we are the ONLY state that does not allow it's citizens the right to carry a gun..... that should be the very first clue that something is not right ....I also live in Illinois,so I feel the need to speak out.

Did you all happen to catch the video of ARMED with a gun punk holding up a store in the Pilson Neighborhood, and the store owner defended himself with a BASEBALL bat.... and lived to tell about it! If he had been ALLOWED to have a gun on the premises there would have been one less punk bad guy living to terrorize more people, plus maybe the next time one of those punk bad guys will think twice about doing harm to someone with a gun, as they themselves might not live to tell about it........That is why we are the joke of the American People!

Sorry about the rant ..... just could not let this one go unaddressed. I mean this is a Conservative REPUBLICAN team.... am I missing something here??

Sorry but I do not find it funny.

I live in Rockford IL, 90 miles from Chicago. Our crime has sky rocketed because Chicago is sending their gangs to us. I used to live in a nice neighborhood as of 5 yrs ago. On Palm Sunday just a block from me, a gang member shot into a bedroom window and livingroom window to shoot the parents because they could not find their son. Fri nite in the elite part of town shots fired into a home.

I was in Florida the other day and I saw a bumper sticker on a parked car that read: “I miss Chicago.”

So, I broke the window, stole the radio, shot out two of the tires, added an Obama bumper sticker and left a note that read, “I hope this helps!”
