Yesterday the kids next door was throwing rocks up on my porch and the dog has poop in my yard I called the police and they said they couldn't do anything cause the mother wasn't there the kids be home alone . They were outside this morning around 12:00 with a stick banging on the garbage cans .Garbage on both sides of the house with their aggressive dog running around between the houses . I talked to the Alderman and so far nothing has been done living next door to a nightmare and Everytime we come out of the house her son is giving my family the birdie finger.

  • If the kids are13years old and under its against the law for them to be home alone. Contact Lisa Madigan's office for further info on whom to contact and perhaps light a fire under the Dept of DCFS. Can't see why police can't get involved. It's a safety issue. Pure and Simple. Good luck.

  • Jesica Ramos Just one of the neighbors

    kids are arrested for crimes all the time same goes for harassment maybe you need to harass the police with phone calls until they do something.

    Here's the Kind of Place You Can Get for $250k in Chicago
    The nice thing about Chicago is that you don't have to be a millionaire to buy a property here. While the housing markets on the West Coast and in New York City continue to spiral upwards to dramatic heights in which only the supremely wealthy can afford, the Mecca of the Midwest still remains a haven for those who aspire to obtain the old American dream of homeownership.

  • Yes you can call Section 8 to report this behaviour. Section 8 will contact the tenant and the owner. If the Alderman's office becomes involved it is a more serious step so the tenant should receive a warning beforehand.

  • MEG Neighbor

    Absolutely LaSalle Neighbor
    There are too many people on the waiting list for Section 8. If that neighbor can't get it right Section 8 will find another family that can. It's a long process but worth fighting for.
