Bridgeview Police have no respect for 71st street residents. That stadium is nothing but an annoyance. I cannot believe that the Bridgeview Police have not figured out a way to disrespect 71st street residents on event days at the stadium. Before that stadium came to Bridgeview we as residents were told it would not inconvenience us on 71st street. That was nothing but a lie. The village of Bridgeview did nothing but lie to us on 71st street. The Bridgeview police act like they are doing us a favor lettting us get into our own driveways after being hassled by them. And the police tell us to move cones out of our own driveways and put them back. And they tell us to hurry up. It is our houses and driveways. How would they like it if they were told to wait until the traffic from the stadium has died down to use the street you live on to get into your own house. And to be told on concert days to park by the village cuz the concert is letting out now. The one night I waited an hour and a half to get into my own driveway cuz I could not use the street I live on which is 71st street. I hope that stadium shuts down. I hope it is a complete failure. It has done nothing for Bridgeview residents. The Mayor should be ashamed of himself for what he has done to residents on 71st street after the village told us we wouldn't be inconvenienced by the stadium. Every time there is an event I am inconvenienced. The traffic, the sound, the vibrations rocking the whole block. I mean come on this is my home I live in. The village is eventually going to be sued for the mistreatment of us on 71st street, you watch.

The village board and the mayor tell the police what to do. U ever go to a board meeting?
Start a petition.

A petition in Bridgeview means nothing. Like that would ever do anything. Bridgeview is corrupt. The Mayor, The police, The fireman are all part of the good old boys orginization. You don't tell on us and we won't tell on you. They just sit back and collect. A petition is not going to do a thing when everyone in the town government is corrupt.

O.K. Shut it down, take the tax revenue out of your salary. The stadium can be a pain, but I have learned to live around it. I mean, it's not like there is something happening there every single day. Take a chill pill and relax. I also find the police obnoxious, but I would not do their job at 10 times the salary.
