Read the Daily Herald and you'll find out what the problem is. Someone found a suitcase in the bushes.

Why? The story is already here.

It's Naperville - Heroin Central...probably just more kids leaving cash/drugs for a pickup.

There's a halfway house a few blocks from the station - maybe they were checking it out.

I live in Naperville and can easily afford it. I also HATE Naperville. It's filled with a bunch of vanilla people who think they are so well off - not to mention the uneducated women who live in Naperville!!! Obviously they have not been to the North Shore!!! Naperville is way more affordable than most nice Chicago suburbs!!!!!!

I totaly agree. Naperville is just boring hellhole. Yea it's better than towns that have to deal with murders and gang violence all day; but seriously, life is more than just being safe. This place is just so boring. Not saying everyone here is, but I do agree that some of the people here are really ignorant fags.

I live in Naperville too! It is a very racist area . If you are not white you get threatened by your neighbors and the police. Naperville wants to have a certain image and when you don't fit into that image people start to make up stories and do things to try and get you to move. Don't be fooled , it is not one of the nicest place in the US to live .

Wow you all need to relax a little ----first of all this is a link to a newstory in Naperville. I am trying to figure out why I have been seeing 20 police cars in route to 88 for the last 2 days... some of your comments are out of control..

I used to live in the heart of chicago (near wrigley) and now live in naperville, I have approximately 7 different ethnic groups in my "hood" Indian being the highest population, I have had social gatherings with all varied groups. for you to make blanket racist assumptions about a community is ignorant. Naperville is a bigger melting pot than west wrigley or southport cooridor downtown,

While I am not choosing Naperville as my permanent residence, and will be moving soon, I have enjoyed living here and have found it a lovely place to raise a family. Police are nice, library has fabulous activities as does the downtown river walk area. There are plenty of areas in Naperville with very affordable homes, that is also an inaccurate comment. The biggest complaint I have about NPVL is that it is huge and way too far out, they have stretched the boundaries to gods country that are ridiculous. Other than that the downtown area is cute and there is plenty to do, you just have to look ...
