I'm so glad to see that someone else recognizes the skate park for what it is. What it always was bound to be.
Chris Early fought for that caca hole to come in. If he runs for mayor not only will I not vote for him I'll be very vocal as to what exactly he brought to Braidwood.
Two minutes up there and anyone can see what's being ignored!

So....It's Chris Early's fault that these snot-nosed, gangsta-wannabe, poorly parented, disrespectful, Reefer-tokin, pill-poppin', punk-ass pukes are being ignored ?? Please. Everyone already knows about the skate park and what goes on there. If you are only just now recognizing it for what it is, you really are out of touch. But don't blame these kids' actions/habits/attitudes/choic es on anyone but them and their parents.

If Chris Early were to run......he would not miss your vote. And reading your tone and and ill-informed, mis-placed blaming, pompous rant fortifies my hunch that......not too many people that read this board are going to give your squalling much creditability anyway. You should try again....but I hope you don't.

I agree with you two cents. I would vote for Chris any day of the week. He is a man of his word and worked hard for the city of Braidwood. I miss seeing him around town.

Acting Chief Myers knows what goes on there. But he does nothing about it. Maybe he and his boss Mayor Suzy want Chris to "look bad"! Seems to be one of their favorite tactics.

If the skate park had never been built.....these kids would still find a place to "do their thing". And I don't think that there is a special section in the skate park for the dealers.....the kids themselves are the dealers. Chris Early did work hard to get it put in and it is a nice facility that a lot of towns do not have......but I am sure he never offered to monitor or police the activities of the attendees! Thats not his job. I doubt that any of these kids that we are discussing are homeless......and that is where it all starts. So if you want to place blame.....look around, across the yard or street or down the block or maybe even in the mirror.....but don't blame Chris.

C for M......I doubt that Chris wants anything to do with the mess that he was forced out of.....for trying to do things the right way vs. the easiest/quickest way. But if he did run, He would be an excellent choice. He has been there and knows what has gone wrong and why and WHO. The powers that be would get awful nervous if he were to start grassrooting....

For one, the drugs aren't in the skatepark. Since you've all been to the park, you'd think you'd notice the big fence around the skatepark. Everything inside that fence, is the skatepark. Everything outside of it, is the city park. Drugs aren't inside the skatepark. I've skated that park everyday, since it first opened. I know that place better than anyone else on this stupid forum.

SHITTT, kids smoke pot there. what a crime, I think we should set up a special task force. to bust down on these teenage kids, with miniscule amounts of pot. And let the fucks selling heroin, or working meth labs just roam free.

The BPD knows what's going on there. They patrol there regularly and there is also surveillance cameras scattered throughout the park.

The problem is this shithole town, full of closed minded, judgmental people. Always so quick to point fingers, but never checking to see if they're own hands are clean.

How in the hell did this turn from cup o' joe robery to this Bull $hit.

#1- If you seen something happening why didn't you call the cops.

#2- Did you bother to tell anyone else about what happened other than on this hell hole of a rumor mill.

#3- If your not going to take the right action by calling the police or getting a license plate number than don't complain when nothing happens because the other dumb asses on this site are doing the same thing you are doing.. nothing.

#4- If you obviously know that these two individuals were involved in those other crimes then why didn't you call the police or will county crime stoppers. If you think this site acts as a credible tip line you wrong.

Get out from behind your computer and do whats right, not just sit in you house and eat your twinkies and you ding-dongs and sit on here. Stupidity runs rampid on here and thats a fact. and yes I know my spelling sucks so what, who cares.

The problem with the skate park is huge,especially in warm weather.The way the teens drive in and out,someone will eventually be killed.The speed bumps do little to deter foolish driving,and the cameras do little to deter stupid behavior.If you live anywhere near that pit you certainly do not enjoy being outside unless you enjoy profanity being spewed nonstop.However,any time I have ever voiced a complaint to any park employee, they have always listened and addressed the matter immediately.What was supposed to be a place for teen enjoyment turned out badly, but it is not Chris's fault.

letitbe....you are right in that the skatepark IS fenced off seperately from, but still within the CityPark. I know that not all of the kids that go to the skate park are part of the "scene", but they should be able to use it without exposure to or temptation/pressure that comes with being around it.
no bias.......so complaining to the park employees has solved the problem? Or, is there still a problem(s)? I guess that some feel there is still a problem. Maybe you should complain some more until everything is under control. Maybe the B P D could take some lessons from these park employee operatives who are so adept at resolving the problems caused by the swirling maelstrom mob of degenerate drugangsta**hole puke teens.

Come on.....The Park Employees job is to maintain, improve, set-up and clean up......not babysit, scold and handslap. Read what Good God wrote.....that is the proper course of action. What the results will be are dependent on response time, visuals, he said/she said, politics and several other variables. It is a sad situation that will not stop.....it might move, but it will not stop.

Chris Early is a great man and would be a GREAT mayor, if he were to run, he would definately receive my vote. As for the skate park, Chris worked hard to get a place for out children to get some exercise and have fun. He is in no way responsible for what happens there. We are very lucky to have a man like him in out town, someone who really cares about our children.

Two cents, I never said that the problem was solved.I said that the employees dealt with it.I think that it helps for the teens to know that they are being watched.I have also called the police on numerous occasions. I have also written the paper and the mayor and my local congressman.When I witness a problem or incident I do what I can to stop it. I realize that it will never be completely stopped but I do what I can because the teens do not run the show,responsible tax paying adults do.

I am with "New Guy". Right on the money. Parents need to just go to the park & see what their kids are doing & with whom. Been by there several times & have seen enough.

You people are very judgemental. Not ALL of the kids up there are bad and do bad things. Some kids do actually go there and skate. Think before you speak.

people who see things happen and do not say anything to anyone are in fact part of the problem. people don't call the cops because they think that someone else will, so what ends up happening...nothing. if you see something going on, call the police.. simple as that. dont' just walk by, see something hapeen, then come on here and tell about it, this site means jack crap. if you do call something in be prepared to sign a complaint because YOU wittnessed the behavior or wreckless driving. Get a plate, driver description and call the cops. If you want to be part of the solution sign the complaint and go to court as the complaintant. don't sit on here think all the problems down there and around town are just going to get taken care of. Do what is right and don't be part of the problem. And, if parents know their child is going down there and doing drugs or smokeing then the parent needs to put the fear of god in their kids. Back 20 years ago if you did something wrong, you got your ass handed to you and today if a kid needs a good attitude adjustment i am sure alot of the cops will turn their heads because they too know that alot of these punkass creeps need it and deserve it. The days of "oh honey, please don't do it again" need to go and a good crack on the ass needs to happen.

My son told me that tom diforty and josh iceburg were also involved in the that robbery and other car robberies. i personally dont like these punks. i think they should be arrested for what they done not the other punks, kids are always hanging out at that s**t hole skatepark wheres theres nothing but drug dealers and kids up to no good doing drugs
Right your SON said so. All these kids do now a days is cut each other down, no respect for each other or most of us adult. NO one is prefect! If they were involved why didn't they tell the officers. The right people doing the job.
And you know they all admitted to doing this crime so let JUSTICE do it duty not people who have no common sense. Also accusing someone else of a crime without proof is a crime.
