I agree with aeastdundee to a certain degree. What do you mean send them back to where they came from. Fox View is a hell hole but the problem with the majority of Americans is making judgement on everyone because they live in a particular place. It's how you live not where you live. I stayed in Fox View for 3 years with my kids and the day I moved in that was the day I said." I have to get out of the hell." And I'm sure I wasn't the only person that said that.But the management there is not doing anything about the gangs, drugs, shooting, or fights that happen down there. If the Police Department really wanted to clean Fox View up they can, instead of talking and joking with the people that they know are the top dope dealers in Fox View. But everything is about money. And that's how that poor dirty town make their money of Fox View. That place is evil and if you don't get out of there you will be doomed.

I lived there for 8 years and raised two high school graduated and they never been in jail, there is good people who can't afford to move and wish they could get away from the crazy people moving in now, And i want to know why would a person be so stupid to say send them back to where they came.Don't judge them all by a few bad seeds. The office should worry about what to do about the young women who move the trouble in with them and not what car parks where. Focus on the big problem.

Im living in foxview and I hate it been here 2yrs i was told it was a place for women with children so i thought i just went through a divorce and very low on money but my god when i move here I cried I never let my kids play outside I took them too the bus stop every morning, well this weekend Im moving thank God, some people are nice here but management really needs too be on these people butt they give you a oreintation on what the rules are but no one follows them but they always trying too get money out of us for stupid stuff, anyway I just found out they have been sold and that they will have camera which they should have done that many years ago, The women need too stop bringing there drug dealing boyfriends and they need too teach there kids respect and not cussing, I seen 2 grown women fight and cuss like sailor early in the morning at the bus stop of little kids and i was standing there with my kids they dont have no respect, they need too clean the place up and they too have mentors come in and talk too the young ladies and maybe get some help. anyway I wish foxview much love and I pray for the children.

First we shouldn't judge or we will be judged in the same measure we give out. I agree that management play a vital role in what is happening in Foxview Apts. I know there was a changing of the guards there some three to four years ago, for the betterment of the people who live in Foxview and C'ville. The statement calling Foxview an animal cage and send them back where they came from I pray that God softens that stoney heart of yours to be part of the solution and not the problem. The police are very much aware of what goes on in Foxview. Management and Police Dept. HELLO

i live in fox view apartments and i am not a criminal and i dont have a boyfriend who is a criminal.i am a 27 year old single mother of four.
i feel that the project management is not to blame it is the people in this project.a lot of women move down here from chicago or what ever city they are from and they have no goals.they bring baggage with them such as drug dealing men, disobedient children,and the belief that they are to stay here forever. i seen this very same thing happen in chicago with many of the projects there and the result was generation after generation of sick habits being born there. carpentersville should enact a program where all low income residents have to go to school, work or be thrown out much like the program that chicago enacted.i feel this program would weed out the resident that want to do nothing except create trouble and live here for the rest of thier lives. think about a solution ,talk to your legislaters,and stop complaining.

Fox aint the only ghetto in c'ville. Most of c'ville is a ghetto. I hate it there and wish I had never been brought there. There are good people in the veiw, its just unfortunate that they have to deal with the bad. We all do, no matter where we live. Most of the people that live there are so called black people (Israel). These conditions are prophesied in the bible. So who is anyone to change what God set forth. Israel is hard headed and always have been, We betta wake up before its too late. I love my peoples, but my peoples lack knowledge of self.

I live in Fox View apartments and i am not a criminal either, nor is my fiancee', i take very good care of my children and i go to work everyday. I am also in school working on my bachelors degree. I didn't grow up with a silver spoon in my mouth and therfore i have to work hard to get to the top, and unfortunately right now i have to stay in low income housing until i can do something better. That does not make me a criminal though, i can't help what some people choose to do around here. There are some murderers and child molesters in some of the best neighborhoods, but that doesn't say anything about the other people in the neighborhood! So please don't judge everybody...when you don't know their story.

I think that FOXVIEW is'nt bad is just some of the people, they label and put all of us in the same category,I am a single mother of four, and i work, i think it's all what you choose to do, I don't like to be judge for some other idiots mistakes. Management needs to do put cameras up, and put locks on the hallway doors, and stop all the lotering. I am not Carpentersville police or FOXVIEW management. Don't judge everyone because of where they live. Judge what u see and know!

I'm glad to see that most who have commented on this discussion have evolved with the current times. Most of you realize that "people" make community circumstances what they are. To "aeastdundee", please specify who you are speaking of when you make reference to "them"? I know who you're speaking of even if you are too much of a coward to spell it out! So the trailer parks (believed to be inhabited by predominantly whites) and the nicely manicured suburbs full of pill popping and alcoholic soccer moms (who torture their children with their weak, addictive ways) are better? Maybe we should send all of the drugged out Caucasians back to the mountains on all fours where they come from! See how ignorant and shallow that sounds? I say all of this in the hopes that the shallow will be able to parallel theses situations. Middle/upper-middle class neighborhoods fall victim to drugs and violence that is precipitated by members of their own communities as well. Is vehicular homicide and all other crimes against the richer communities any less a burden on those communities than the crimes of poorer communities? The substandard management team in Fox view is at fault for the escalating crime because they tolerate it and the women who make it possible...just like the police in the richer neighborhoods who let drunks and addicts off because they go to the same church; the doctors who fill the prescriptions cause they get paid to; the kids, teens, men, and women of these neighborhoods that think that their similar destructive behaviors are any better because they do it in a house rather than in a project/high-rise! Remember, anything that is not growing/evolving (two of the criteria to be biologically considered alive) is dead. Mental growth therefore is a necessity! Those who make shallow comments to this or any other discussion like it, may as well be dead! Such comments show you lack of growth and the certainty that growth, for you, is not possible. Live and love one another.

Truth be told, you sound like Hitler...very intolerant to others opinions. You should be dead. I sure am glad that I live with pill popping soccer moms, in a comunity full of doctors ready with a pill pads. Sounds like you are unhappy, becuase your not white. Bleach you skin, dye your hair...you'll still be stupid. By the way, my brothers friends uncles neighbor knows a black man that lives in a trailer park.

Get a grip, they may be "fake" thugs but the drugs, guns and violence are real. Sorry we're not fortunate enough to have lived in Chicago with the "real" thugs. Truth be told, I agree with neosapian, i would rather live in a so called "rich" neighborhood with people that keep there problems inside their homes and aren't injuring innocent people. I think it's really sad that in ghetto c-ville I have to be afraid to let my kids play outside, with the recent child prowlers loose and a shooting that killed a young man by house. I'm not racist, but the facts be told most violent crimes are not of white ethnicities.
