I down the street from the scene, this place is some kinda flop house for euro trash.

This was not Hispanic or Black.

This guy was some eastern european euro trash.

Have to give the black and hispanics a break on
this one wasn't them.

People are so ignorant thats why this world is the way it is.. Right away assuming Is a hispanic or Puerto Rican. When Americans come to my Island and people from other countries we Welcome them in, we don't blame everything that happens in Puerto Rico on them.

Check the facts. They're not white or black gangs. Ask the cops on the street.

this area has been getting more and more dangerous, this was in 2008
and this is now 2010 and i have known atleast2 more times this has happened in the same area
i agree its the thugs
maybe if this country deceided to spice up the immigration law and make it higher for no chance of illegal immigration to happen you would deffinetly see a decrease in crime.
afteralll if these people get caught and put in jail whos going to pay for them? our taxes. yup out of your pockets. so think about that u.s.a.

Where did all the whites and white gangs that used to live in Cicero all scramble off to?
My first guess is Berwyn but even Berwyn has changed ALOT!!
All the White street gangs are retired or dead. If a white is in a gang today, he is member of Hispanic or African-American street gang. Repeat, their is no active White street gangs active today. No Gaylords, no Simon City Royals, No Popes, No C-Notes, and No Stoned Freaks active today. In fact have been extinct for at least 14 years or more

This is the second of two fatal shooting in my neighborhood within a month, there was also a shooting at Irving and Cicero a few weeks ago. Being a lifetime resident of this neighborhood I will have to say that the Hispanic thugs moving into the neighborhood are fully to blame for the increase in crime. Damn sanctuary cities!
thats bs cuz right next to me I have white thugs coming by and causing problems so dont just blame it on the hispanics dummy!!! If u dont like it move!!

The problem is just people from other bad neighborhoods coming to loiter in ours. No one is to blame and no race is to be blamed.
