Chicago Tribune ^ | June 15, 2011 | Dennis Sullivan

Posted on 06/15/2011 8:28:20 AM PDT by ConservativeStatement

A chance encounter at the Orland Square Mall turned into a brawl for the wife and ex-wife of a Chicago man, police said.

Orland Park Police cited Migdalia Rodriguez, 48, of the 10100 block of Morgan Street in Chicago and Lynnette M. Love, 50, of the 8400 block of Maryland Avenue in Chicago, for violating a village ordinance against battery around 4:15 p.m. May 25 after each demanded the arrest of the other.

Chicago, huh?

Question: How many more, ummmm, participants would be needed in order to classify this as a Flash Mob?

Love punched her in the mouth and bit her finger.

Happens to us all.

Guess I’m lucky - my wife and ex-wife get along quite well.

Old people generally and old ladies particularly shouldn’t fight in public. It disorders their blue hair.

Women fight over me all the time. That’s because I’m usually the first one to hit the floor. Women can hit harder than you think. Interesting view of a fight from the floor, though. Especially if the women are wearing skirts.

These fights often take place at Chuck E. Cheese when spouses exchange custody of their children. This was not true in this case, however.

“The only thing missing was mud or Jell-o.”

And anybody who saw anything... from the article: “Police said they were unable to find witnesses who weren’t directly involved in the altercation.”

I’m surprised that there was a security guard there to help. That one was a quick recipe for disaster. You have the 2 primary combatants that you don’t dare to step between for fear of shredding. Then, each of them has an adult daughter who can clock you from behind when you grab her mama. THIS is the sort of situation that tactical response teams are built for.

And if I’m in the store I guarantee you neither I nor my video phone saw ANYTHING. But more likely, I’m putting as much space as possible between me and the impending riot. Don’t get me wrong, I will run naked into a gun battle for a loved one. I’m just not stupid enough to be near a cat fight like the one this article describes.

Both women exchanged looks, then words, then blows, police said.

In that order.....

This is a result of the Lenin-like divorce laws that have made the marriage contract into something worthless.

Since it is worthless, many people don’t seriously enter into the contractual agreement thinking it will be lifelong....in fact, culture encourages and rewards those who destroy the contract or demean it and cheat and try to seduce others while married. There is no responsible party for the destruction of the contract with “no fault”. Interestingly, Lenin instituted similar laws in the 20’s to destroy marriage and he founded day cares for 9 mos. and up, and made “mothers” work, so that he had his state goons shape the “thinking” of the future “Leninists”. (Detached, non-loyal to parents, defective self-esteem, learns to “group-think” correctly.)

This “accepted norm” of behavior—detached, non loyal, inhumane (institutionalized) normalcy, creates an irreligious, self-destructive, addictive and follower-type citizenry—the opposite of a Christian worldview of self-reliance, responsible and selfless caring of others, especially children, to create the future loving and caring adult.

Behavior is modeled and learned. Inhumane, institutionalized care creates amoral children who can not have lasting relationships, etc. and adopt destructive “lifestyles” that may not even resemble the norm (since it has been destroyed).

These people are the natural consequence of our “educational” culture—one, that starting at birth, encourages dysfunction.

Our courts have got to get back to the “Rule of Law” and Just Law as intended by our Constitution—based on God’s Laws, not man-made Marx Laws based on whims and wishes of some legal scholar who thinks himself god— and get rid of all the profit that is a part of the “divorce” culture which destroys children and their future relationships.

In other words, corrupt law leads to a corrupt, evil society.....Cicero even knew that thousands of years ago and understood that there are Universal Truths. Why have we aloud the “legal” system to base laws on political whims and corrupt notions because of evil judges who want to pervert a system to benefit his friends and buddies?

These judges have to be exposed and disbarred for breaking their oath of office. The Constitution means something and they have to be held accountable to their decisions.

...for violating a village ordinance against battery around 4:15 p.m.

It could be a pretty succinct report depending on the officer.

On 25 May 2011 at approximately 1615 hours, suspect Lynette Love, 50 confronted suspect Migdalia Rodriguez, 48, at the Orland Square Mall. The sequence of events were as follows:

Both suspects:

1. Looked
2. Exchanged words
3. Exchanged blows.

Rodriguez claimed Love punched her in the mouth and bit her finger. Love had scratches on her arm. No one could be located as a witness who was not a party to the disturbance. Both suspects were cited for battery.

Migdalia is probably Mexican and the comedian Pablo Francisco has some funny words about Mexican women fighting.

Humorous point taken but there’s a lot of truth in it. I hear/see loads of divorced parents who only see each other (grudgingly) at birthday parties at...Chuck E. Cheese.

It’s like a demilitarized zone where hostages are transferred.

That was a pretty darn snotty comment. Women (I won't call them ladies as they are apparently not lady-like) aged 48 and 50 are not 'old people', 'old ladies', nor would they have blue hair unless they dyed it that way.

True story:

My neighbor saw a woman at the mall, and knew she looked familiar, so neighbor walked over to woman and started chatting, asking what’s new, how are things, etc.

Finally, neighbor confessed she couldn’t remember woman’s name. Woman said, “I am___.”

Woman is married to neighbor’s ex-husband.

Oops.
