A foul-mouthed Tinley Park man cursed out his children and threatened to lock them in a "hot truck" if they didn't "shut up," then unleashed a stream of profanity at a woman who objected to his language, police said.
The man, 33-year-old Mark Pawlak of 17411 Carlyle Court, was carted off by the Orland Park cops and charged with disorderly conduct for his allegedly offensive behavior.

But in a way it disconcerting to me and I wonder how that how far could this go with police arresting you, for, while in public using loud or profane speech which annoys people?
If you treat your own kids that way in public, there is no way you are a decent parent in private.
Those are the actions of someone who is mentally ill.
What he said falls under the definition of menacing in most jurisdictions.
That guy has a small cranium.
Just my opinion.
As much as I dislike the behavior, ARRESTED? I assure you that I am assaulted daily with what I consider unacceptable behavior from a great variety of people. But I don’t call the police.
Telling the kids he’d lock them in a hot car? Big deal.
Would it have been menacing if he just told her to “Get Lost”?
Arresting someone for foul language is a VERY slippery slope.
Maybe Mark Pawlak can now get a gig hawking credit cards. “What’s in your wallet?”
i seem to recall a case a few years back when this guy was arrested for cussing on a whitewater trip. the case was eventually thrown out on free speech grounds.
but this guy was bullying his own kids (who wants to be one of his kids?), and he tried bullying this woman. im glad she stood her ground, this might be the signpost that this guy needs to get his act together.
and i’m curious as to how many people who are defending this guy would do so had he been black? or muslim?
Even worse are people who wear profanity-laden T-Shirts in public places.
That's a VERY big deal. We should not condone parents threatening their children. He might as well have said that he was going to take them out to the parking lot to shoot them. Unconsionable.
This would have never made any news if that were the case.
No one, especially management would have dared to stand up against either a black or muslim for fear of either physical assault, discrimination lawsuit or both.
It was much simpler and less risk for the police to arrest the white bozo.

agreed on the bozo part. i hope he gets the message and starts acting like a father rather than a master
they’ve had decency/obcenity laws forever regarding cursing. local laws. nothing new. localities have always been able to set what they consider obscene behavior.
“and im curious as to how many people who are defending this guy would do so had he been black? or muslim?”
After listening to Tommy Sotomayor I’m convinced they don’t care if blacks or muzzies hurt/kill their children. White kids they will protect that is why this man was arrested. Had this been a black woman? Oh she’d been back in the home to kill the kids. I’ve seen too many of Tommy’s video’s that just prove it.
Wimpish. You people probably want to ARREST parents for telling the kids there is no Santa Claus.
In fact, when I was up at Lake George, I saw one of the usual suspects walking around wearing a t-shirt that simply said "Hezbollah" in a font as if it were a sports team he was a fan of.
I complained to park management and they said "It's not swear words or a graphic picture, so it's not offensive."
I responded: "A guy is wearing a t-shirt championing an organization that the federal government recognizes as a foreign terrorist group, and it';s not offensive? You're OK with it?"
It would have been fun to pull out a KKK shirt at that point and put it on in front of the park guys.
Firing for effect, I think it’s called.
It’s too bad the woman didn’t have the manager to ask the man to stop his bad language and threats to his children. It would have been safer.
A while ago I was at a restaurant and two men, with their wives, no less, used the F word a lot. Probably more than 20 times. Very loud. The manager was very polite. He went to their table and said when it was convenient could they come over (outside that room) to talk with him. The men knew exactly why they were being asked and stopped the bad language immediately.
I don’t like the government interfering with child raising but I suspect this bozo beats the hell out of the poor kids. His wife too, probably.
I was arrested in Orland Park a few years ago for telling a muslim that I was not talking to her and for her to leave me alone. She called the cops and cried to them saying I called her a racial slur. Got a ticket for disorderly conduct. $250 dollar fine that I will not pay ever. DUMBEST cops ever.
