Whatever guy,
1. I am fully aware that ISP change routinely in a small community. It is extremely rare that your ISP will jump if you do reside in a large city. He says he lives in Chicago, there are plenty of access points in the city, and there is no need for him to use one 50 miles away.
2. the argument not whether there is crime in Chicago and how much of it is there, but whether baggy jeans and anckle high belt is a litmus test for a gang member. Mr. Park Forest has no idea what he is talking about and is broadly generalizing based on his bias. And you are making an assumption regarding our conversation.
Again I am Miss Jew IN West Rodgers Park-My grandmother built a house here in 1958 a block away from Ezra-this was a wonderful area- we have had shootings in broad daylight now, and the usual shootings at night-it was never that way until the past two years. You may think you know everything but this area has been infiltrated by crime-there is not enough police to even police the GRAS areas-so they suffer because that is where the crime is now worse than it has ever been.

Did you just call me "precious" ? LOL. Ok, your ISP jumps from rogers park to Park Forest? Right... And I am a Queen of England.
I know very well the situation in Roger's Park, however you being in Park Forest, which is 50 miles away does not give you any cred when it comes to a Chicago neighborhood.
OK Precious-if you look at the first page of posts, it says my ISP is Chicago-then Park Forest-then United States. Keep on keepin' on-since you are the Queen of England now-Queeny.

this is not an issue period. those kids should have just acted/dressed properly and that is all there is to it.
this why there should be profiling-from the front of the door at Mother's these bouncers are trained to look down the street when they are not checking people in-the word is these guys were acting like a gang of fools before they got there. They were loud and pushing each other all they walked down the street. This would be reason enough to refuse entrance-not racist-they are looking to keep other people in the club safe.

You are right, west Rodgers park is much safer area. I still think you are from Park Forest.
