    In South Chicago the process has been going on for about 20 years. In the past I've called the cops, the building department, etc. But in the end the best thing to do is to be friendly. You don't have to be great buddies but by smiling, waving and saying hello you might find out what is going on. Sometimes people turn out to be good people looking for good neighbors.

    parents the fault lies with you when your child was playing shoot em up bang bang because you bought the guns. they kept that mentality in their heads and when your child was acting out you said ok my child needs a check.you got the check and then you didn't raise your child whatever your child did was okay because you had the check you wasn't worried about your child anymore you worried about getting your hair and nails done buying a new car and partying your children were out there doing whatever they wanted to do....bullying fighting gangbanging. the first thing you would say to a person if you touched my child!! or don't put your hands on my child!! go to the teachers and be ready to jump on them but your child is out of hand. Disrespecting them. Not knowing if your child was telling the truth..you just took their side.neighbors couldn't tell you anything about your child. now we sit back and see what they're doing and still no one wants to tell. Now the parents of the people that's doing the shooting and stealing sit back and still don't say anything you know your children are out here with these guns. And you say nothing you are just as guilty as them. You also know exactly what your sons or daughters are doing out here. You turn your head as if you don't see anything I just don't understand why parents are afraid of their children these days that couldn't be me I thank God I had my children when I did they all are grown and i was a single parent living in SS. 3 graduated from college 1 finished HS has a good job the other never pasted his GED.but has a good job
    That's the one that got in trouble at age 15 i told him if you did the crime you gone do the time so don't lie to me. He did his time an he learned from it he's an adult know an on the right path.Thank you Jesus..people wake up don't blame the police and the major they didn't raise these kids you did. A closed mouth doesn't help it only help keep crime going up.....Think people.

Southeast Side Chop Shop Preys on Community and

This southeast side chop shop has been preying on the surrounding community - they have been stealing cars and taking them to have parts stripped and then scrapped for metal.

The car thefts in the area surrounding Adelman's were 262% higher than other areas of the city. No one notices this until people start finding their stolen cars inside the Adelman's lot.

The 10th ward alderman has gotten property tax breaks for Adelmans?

Only one person is charged with stealing one car?
