Big deal, endure the traffic stops, if you are clean, you have nothing to fear, and only have to give up a few minutes of your time. We all have to go through full body scans when we fly because of a few crazy terrorists, but we do so for the safety of the majority...suck it up, and shut up already.

I don't see as many mexicans like i used to before.I guess their packing up and leaving.You know what i have been seeing lately around here 2-3 cop cars pulling over mexicans left and right-and checking their car from inside and out.How embarrassing right NOT!!! That's what you all get for coming here and if you want to try another state try going to Arizona where the sheriff and the Mayor Jan Brewer have every illegal mexican controlled like dogs.In Sheriff Arpaio jail he makes the mexicans wear pink jail uniforms. ;D GET MY POINT LEAVE THE U.S.- YOU DON'T BELONG HERE AND NEVER WILL BE!

Mary, the rental property inspection program is designed to get rental owners to take care of their property, and to be involved in day to day issues, including eliminating criminal activity. It was not set up to target the owners or any ethnic group. The only group objecting to the program are slumlords who want to let their property go, and could care less about criminal activity. Rental ownership is a business, and like any business requires investment of time, money and attention. If the slumlords are abandoning their properties, so be it. A responsible owner will buy them and maintain them properly. Kudos to Addison for fixing up the rental areas.

in Addison, it seems that the Latino group is being targeted through rental property owners. The rental property owners are being charged with petty violations that cost them hundreds to thousands in court. Some of them foreclose/leave Addison etc, get out of the rental business and the renters(Spanish) need to leave as well. The price of the realestate keeps going down. It is is a well known fact that Mayor Hartwig does not want Spanish in Addison. He was once quoted that they should all go back to Mexico.
Additionally, the Green Oaks Court areas, which has been flooding for a while,the village has decided not repair the situation.This will also cause the renters for leave.

Jan Brewer would make a great president. She's just the opposite of Obama.

Jan Brewer belongs in a nursing home or a nut house, not a political office. You idiots make it too easy to support Obama (who I don't even like) if that's the best you can come up with.

Romney is at least intelligent but he's a rich millionaire whose out of touch with most Americans (and he changes views like I change underwear).

Fear does not automatically mean guilt. Thats an ignorant response and ignorance is where the root of all the racial profiling lies. First of all,I want to make it clear that not all hispanics are Mexicans and cultures vary within latino communities. Do latinos get singled out? Yes. Is it always fair? NO. Do we have a right to protest for our rights? Absolutely! Any legal resident or citizen deemed worthy of maintaining residence within the United States by the U.S government i.e immigration services, should and are granted equal rights in this country. Whites, black, asians, green, purple, blue and all else should fight for their rights so long as they are indeed law abiding individuals. However, latinos,blacks and other races also need to understand that statistically these races tend to have higher numbers of crimes in society, so can you/we blame local law enforcement for being cautious? No. Now, if abuse and other disrespecting or obvious racial behavior are displayed, then there is a problem that needs addressing. And "white" people lease lease please....most of you are as culturally diverse as any other race. Your white skin and light eyes doesnt make you "white" and American. My father is white and has baby blue eyes but is as Cuban as it gets yet we have Irish descendants as most Black Jamaicans do. Also, one of the first terrorist acts within the last 20 years was caused by a white man against a mostly white community. Be educated people....
