I agree with Angie. Police in Calumet city have a long history of not even showing up in the east neighborhood. Older residents there seem to be accustomed. I contacted Calumet City police about a burglary report in my old residence for over a year and was blown off with know response. Once I was at home when my neighbors apartment was being robbed and it took two and a half hours for police to show. Another time my neighbor was chasing someone down 156th with a large knife while her boyfriend was either being beaten or beating someone up in the hallway. Police did show but when the guys wouldn't open the door they just left. I have written the newspapers. They will not print your story. I even contacted the newspaper to do a story about the slumlording and crime. They sounded interested but never called back. I contacted my alderman several times. Nothing was done. Nothing. I even spoke to the mayor twice. Not interested. Most, if not all of the police do not live in Calumet City. They live in the new neighborhoods of Indiana. This is not their community so why should they care. We are just low class trash to them who can't keep up with the Jonses and live in Schereville or St. John.. Many people who don't live hear think of Calumet City as a wasted ghetto. They are not ashamed to say it right to your face. When you tell them what has happened in your neighborhood they say that's what you get for living in the ghetto or I hope you learned your lesson and move somewhere better. This allows the good people to be forced out and the gang members and drug dealers to take over our community. Do you know a Calumet City police officer is on trial for police brutality right now. If he is found guilty the person he beat up (allegedly on a camera!) who possessed drugs will go free. Then he will sue the city and our tax dollars will pay for it. Our tax dollars will also pay for the trial. They use the division of racism against us workingclass people in crooked politics. The more we do not unify in this city the worse it gets. It's classism. You are right Angie, worse and worse.

You need to sue for that. One police officer beat someone up in the station last year on camera and is on trial still trying to defend his innocence! Calumet City police do not live here. There is no residency. I have heard rumors that the mayor doesn't even live here. The people who work for the city think of us as low life trash who they can treat however they want but make good salries off our tax dollars. That is why I will be supporting Pam Cap for mayor this year. The current administration does a poor job. We need to get involved and take our own city back. Call your alderman and let him know you want something done about your husband's case immediately.

I hate morons who hate morons... Let me please repeat myself....
You know... I hate "morons" who hate "morons". It is extremelly funny when a known jerk with a baby penis- with possibly a badge; with a girlfriend or wife(- that secretly loving on a Mandingo) "moron-retarded" (as your ignorant self so put it) exclaims on the Internet....
Claims that they "hate morons" and then says the famous "white racist remark..."You people are retarded"
the only "Retarded" person is "You". And I say that with an exclamation point.
Yes some of their grammar may not be elementary correct... But at least your racist ignorant self can understand it. I personally know many of the Police Officers in the Calumet City area...and 99.9% of the White/Irish/Italian ones are nothing but Perverts that need to be hand-cuffed, and locked away with the Key thrown away.

I bet your perverted self hangs around that pervert officer Keith Paproski (who by the way Lovessssss my beautiful Carmel skin) I personally know the mayor does Not like many of the officers and are in fact trying desperately to eliminate many of them.

So the next time you get over the world wide web and discriminate... Be careful... Or I will be glad to spill the beans on you Jerk.

That sounds exactly like how it is here in Melrose Park a very corrupt town. I am glad that you people are being vocal about it.
1) Our police station has been raided 2 times by the FBI
2) Police had set up a security firm. Then they shook down businesses including a church and kids amusement park to use their security firm.
3) The ex police chief is still in jail for this
4) We have an adult bookstore that doubles as a swinger club. Fox News even reported about them. We asked the mayor and police to do something about it and they don't! This could cause spreading of HIV/AIDS and other STD's from the club patrons to their spouses and lovers.
5) It's not just the police that are crooked. There are a lot of inbred families that call their lover relatives who work for the village and will sic the building inspectors and health inspectors on you.

Good luck I know it's an uphill battle. I can't wait til I can move from this disgusting town.

Why anyone would pretend to be me is baffling.
Try and come up with your own name.
You are never going to fool anyone using my name.
My style is way different then yours.
Just for example i have never called anyone insulting names.
And certainly would never use a term like inbred families.
So go get your own screen name and just be yourself.
I can speak for myself i don't need an impostor.

I believe they should change the laws so that police must pass a psychological exam to ensure that they are right in the head before they can get their badge. If someone were to apply for a job at the federal level they are vetted by the FBI. That's even for a postal job! The standards to become a police officer are much lower. I read all the time about police forcing prostitutes to have sex with them. There are also numerous reported instances of police robbing drug dealers or taking money from gangs to protect them. There are even a lot of cops that are gang members. There should probably be periodic psychological evaluations for existing cops as well as drug testing. In my town Melrose Park some people won't call the police because that could lead to harassment by the police or other village departments. I even read somewhere that some of the corrupt cops who cooperated with the Feds are still cops. So I fervently pray that someday there can be a higher standards bar for being a police officer.

They probably also should take rigorous background checks to ensure that they have not committed any crimes themselves. They are supposed to be there to SERVE and PROTECT not to VICTIMIZE. My sympathies to all the victims of police on here.

That is so true....they are supposed to serve and protect... But we both can count on our hand and realize just how many will or have done that.

Angie maybe you should read a book and take some classes because your posts speak of you lack of intelligence. I particularly like that you can't even spell the "BADGE" but you spell it "BEDGE". The problem is not the Cal City Police but ignorant people like you.
