  • If this is what we get in the dead of winter, I fear to know what's coming in the heat of summer?

  • L Yadda

    Start my Conceal & Carry class next month!

  • Protect yourself. These criminals don’t give a darn about you and will harm you to the fullest. Criminals will divide the people and the street they live on.

  • Good choice, L.

  • What can we do to stop these random shootings in our neighborhood, in addition to calling the police??

    Yvonne6 I don't know what we're going to do about these shootings which happens all over the city. Majority of the time it's gang related. These young teens shooting at their suppose target and whomever is around gets hit except the intended target. Laws have to change if there is to be a change in this city. The young man that was arrested over the weekend for attempting to carjack a former police officer was back on the street to commit another carjacking but this time he was caught with a gun. Why was he back on the street? If the laws change on crimes committed by teenagers the city will see a change. There is a different set of laws for adults.

    Stop voting party line. Did YOU vote for Foxx last election?

  • I have always said that the Cook County Criminal Justice system favors the criminals. A criminal has more rights than a law abiding citizen. And they know this too. As of this year, I stop voting along party line.

  • Not only does it favor the criminal, the courts and jails are overwhelmed by the number of crimes and so, rightly, concentrate on the worst. So, it is up to us, the law abiding citizens, to take care of ourselves, our loved ones and our property.
    If that means being licensed and armed--if you have the confidence and know how--do it.
    It also means taking proper precautions--from always locking your car, your home to installing cameras and other security devices on your home and business, etc. Yeah, the criminals are still out there but you needn't help them.
    And oh yes, agitate for stricter sentencing guidelines and remember--we have rights too!

    Foxx feels sorry for the criminals

  • It’s not that Foxx feels sorry for criminals. She has a lot on her plate. She has inherited so much bull from the previous administration. There are so many cases that she has personally got involved with instead, of passing it down to a lower subordinate. I personally, was going through a number of events dealing with a so call wanna be thug. I decided to contact her myself. She took the time to listen and handle the case. I suggest if anyone is having trouble with gangs, drugs on so on. Seek out your Alderman. They have direct contact with the State and County Attorneys.

  • Illinois should bring back the death penalty. Then maybe these punks will wake up get message and don't let them sit on death row for years excute them soon as they are sentence. So sick of not being able too walk around more in my neighborhood can't even walk too Conor store or bus stop in fear of being shot by some punk. Just really horrible and fustrating and no body should have too live this way. I got worry about my children leaving out going to work or just doing what they need to do taking care of business and making it back safe at home praying they don't get harmed while they out just doing what they supposed too do for them self's. So sick of this really am. 😢

  • Yes, when these criminals are arrested and charged, they shouldn't be let out on bail or the bail set where they can't afford it, and sentenced as an adult, unable to get back on the street. Perhaps, petitioning our law makers. This maybe the best time. It's an election year. You want our vote get rid of these punks, thugs, and criminals.

  • AL Old homesteader

    One of the many reasons why citizens are moving out of the city.

  • Is this a economic game . Keeping the crime going so the city can steady get paid court costs room and board and meals for inmates . Criminals so dumb the system is designed for them
