Maybe Steger needs to hire young cops not a bunch of retired guys as PT. Young cops are proactive not reactive. Sad they will not hire young guys but hire retired guys that are just using the Steger Police Dept for an active badge. People need to vote out the current administration.

The parents of these juveniles need to be held accountable. The kids get a slap on the hand and the parents dont care what the kids are doing.

They were all adults involved. There were no children. These "kids" are almost 30 and need to grow up!

What's the big secret? Why cant we know their names? Im sure it'll never make the papers. It may seem news to us, but Chicago heights, Sauk Villlage, Richton Park, they get shootings all the time now, no big news for them.

Unfortunately that's a problem, people become accustomed to the violence and then it never goes away.

If people call the police, even anonymously, when they see something suspicious and the police respond then the bangers\dealers will get irritated\frustrated and see that they won't have that spot available to them and will move on.

Honestly I think they would also think twice if they thought that the average citizen was armed. We are the only state in the country where you can't carry a concealed weapon. Without even looking at the number I can tell you that Illinois is not in the top ten states that have the lowest crime rates.

It made the NW Indiana Times paper. For those who don't know, they report much more news about our area than any Illinois-based paper.

Russell Publications used to send a reporter to meetings in Crete, Beecher and Monee for "our" publication of their paper (assume they have a paper that covers Steger?). They stopped doing that probably 2 years ago, so no dedicated reporter anymore. I have no idea how they get what little news they do publish, I think it has to sent TO them by someone, they don't seem to go out of their way anymore to get it. Of course, the Southtown used to send a reporter and they no longer do it either.

In Crete, a NW Indiana Times reporter frequently comes to board meetings. Not sure what other towns they may go to. Sad when an Indiana paper has more info than local papers. I may drop my subscription to Southtown and pick up NWIT instead.

Savages continue their march through the South Suburbs into the south ex-burbs. It is a real shame that towns that took decades to build are turning into towns that you should see in third world countries. Why are these savages so determined to destroy communities and America?? Are they to stupid and selfish to understand that they are ruining a great thing??

On what charges? you cant arrest people or force them to leave their residence on hearsay...otherwise people could run around and call you a ganbanger, and that would be enough for police to "do something about it".

Maybe we should be passing some village ordinances that would give the cops leverage in dealing with gangsters....like banning them from walking in these large groups together up and down the streets, in the city the call that forming a "mob".

Anyone else any good ideas how to discourage the gangs from thinking Steger is easy pickings???

Gee, thanks for the words of encouragment. As long as I can write something that pisses people off enough to think about it, then the job is done. This is a discussion board, and all opinoins are welcome, as long as they pertain to the subject at hand and not because you got some gripe with me, a person who you said didnt exists, but are happy to put little spam signs on my posts. It's so cute to have my own personal fan club! I love you too, sweetie.<3

Far too lazy to sign in anymore, no one else does....and last thing I need is some weird ass freak at my door trying to hurt me because he didnt like what I wrote in some silly post... Last time I checked free speech was my right, and defending myself again someone like yoiu with a .45 slug in your head is my right also. So get lost, HATER!
