Lansing Illinois is going to be the next Calument City insofar as crime, gangs and shootings. White flight is now fully underway. Close to 40% is black and Mexican. And wheather one declares this as a racist statement or not I really don't give a damn.

But when blacks move in crime soon follows it. Anyone know a good realtor?

I agree w/you - I plan on moving - last year a "loose single mom" moved into a house on 186th, the house was shot up with her poor kids in the house, due to her lifstyle, and the way she lives with all kinds of men who deal drugs....what pisses me off is that the children in that house are brought up to think that this is "normal", and what's bugging me is that the bullet holes in her windows still have not been fixed - almost like she's proud to display...where I live in Lansing is only a block away from this woman - it was a wonderful neighborhood, with many people being retired......now we have this trash........

I have been trying to get the Mayor and Police to post crimes on the POLICE WEBSITE and all I get is a run around. Every single crime they have to report to the National crime database. They want to HIDE this information for obvious reasons. There are three people across the street that have lived there for 25 years. All moved out in the last four months and one of them is a teacher in Lansing. I'm sorry. It's not about color. It's about reputation. Its a simple fact that when blacks move in crime moves in. And the whole country knows it. TF south is in a litteral LOCK DOWN

harvey used to be an excellent neighborhood too and look what happened to that. the fact is that you can't change what is happening, its too late. it is a shame that you didn't realize this before because many people like myself and my parents moved out well over 7 years ago!

It's only been in the last 2 - 3 years. And part of major problem in the TF SOUTH IS THAT LYNNWOOD is part of the school district.

Guess we had our hopes up that the police would actually do the jobs they were hired for. Not sure what your age is, but I grew up with the fact that when someone gave you their word, it was good. Guess now, you must look at everyone like a liar. The fact that Harvey has a dirty major, and the poice department is being paid off to turn their heads has a lot to say.........

Mike, use cicero, il as an example and get out while you can, BUT watch out where you go because the mex's will follow you if they can find a place to fit three families and five land barges.

In IL they are the darlings of the dems so your plight will definitely go unheeded by any politician. Vote smart and look at the voting records before you do or everywhere you go will resemble where you are now and worse.

Angry, I've heard some horror stories about LGP lately from a few residents and it looks like your town may soon be linking up with cicero and berwyn unless your pols get pro-active about it. Hope not? It's a nice quiet town until the rancheros move there. Pray for McMansions sprouting up, but not next door to you? They lierally DO block the sun.

I grew up in Eastside / Hegewisch area. I moved to Lansing 5 years ago. It is changing. But where can you go? I really like my area, It's near Indiana border and all the shopping areas. Hell if the brothers can afford $6000.00 a year in taxes more power to them.

You are so right. I grew up in hegewisch about 20 years ago. I was a nice are of the city to live in. Now it is a dump because of all of the mexicans moving in. Same with th east side. As soon as mexicans moved in everything went to hell. They have about 50 people living in one house. Most of then are probably illegal. It is truly a shame, and it saddens me to see my neighborhood looking this way.
Guess it's people like you who have to "generalize" people....take a look in the mirror. While you are talking about Mexicans, take a look at the south...you have just as much "southern folk" living in one house.........and all are married to the same woman.........shame on you.

To this racist making this comment. The town is still full of great people: black, white, mexican, whatever. Two of my neighbors are black and are the nicest people you could want for neighbors, my old neighbors were mexican and were like family to me and my wife. Every town has its problems, god forgive a mexican family or african american family trying to make a difference or better themselves my moving to your community. Anyone can be a shitty neighbor be them black, white, etc... Dont waste your life walking around with blinders. Majority of the crimes in town are domestic batteries and cant be generalized to one cover. Do you think drugs, and thefts dont happen in other places? Wake up, you will never know the exact specifics of every town in americas crimes.

I LIVE IN LANSING AND HAVE LIVED THERE FOR YEARS AS AN AFRICAN AMERICAN I SEE CRIME ON THE RISE BUT FROM ALL PARTIES THE ONLY REASON PEOPLE THINK CRIME GOES UP WHEN BLACKS AND MEXICANS MOVE IN BECAUSE ITS SHOWN TO LOOK THAT WAY, I LIVE IN THE MOSTLY WHITE PARTY OF LANSING NEAR THE KKK LODGE AND THERE'S BEEN RAPES OF WHITE WOMEN BY THEIR WHITE MALE PALS AFTER DRINKING BUT THIS TYPE OF STUFF YOU DON'T HEAR ABOUT I ALSO LIVED NEAR THE WHITE WOMEN WHO CUT HER CHILDREN 11 TIMES ON HENRY 9 YEARS AGO I ALSO LIVED NEAR THE POLICE OFFICER THAT WAS SELLING DRUGS USING BLACK BOYS FROM TFS AND TFN THAT GOT IN TROUBLE AND NONE OF THIS WAS TOLD BY THE NEWS JUST THE GUN SHOTS AND STUPID CRIMES AND BLACKS

LISTEN PEOPLE BLACKS WANT WHITES TO MOVE OUT WHEN THEY MOVE IN SO THAT THE PROPERTY VALUE WILL STABLE OFF AND THEY SISTER AND BUY THE HOUSE NEXT DOOR FOR LESS THAN ITS WORTH WE'VE GOTTEN HIP TO YOU'LL AND NOW USING YOUR FEARS AGAINST YOU TO HAVE YOU MOVE TO THE EVEN MORE BOOM DOCKS WHILE WE AND MEXICANS LIVE NEAR PUBLIC TRANS, MALLS, AND EXPRESSWAYS FOR A MORE EASY LIVE WITHOUT LIVING DIRECTLY DOWNTOWN.

LOOKS LIKE ITS WORKING AND WATCH 5 FIVES FROM NOW WHEN MOST OF THE WHITES HAVE MOVED SO FAR OUT THE BLACKS AND MEXICANS WILL COME TO LIVE BETTER WITH UPGRADED SCHOOLS, SHOPS, AND NEW EXPRESSWAYS NEAR BY LOOK AT THE SOUTH SHORE AREA, BRONZEVILLE AND THE GAP KEEP LIVING IN THE PAST AND YOUR FUTURE WILL BE FILLED WITH LIES AND TRICKS OF THE TRADE.

Once upon a time Cal City, Gary, Harvey, East Chicago, Ford Heights, Chicago Heights and many others were all nice places to live. Economics and ignorant people that raise even more ignorant offspring have ruined all of these towns. Learn to raise your kids and put down your crack pipe and maybe you won't have to bury your child or visit him at county. I can't beleive you actually defend and enjoy what happens in these towns as "white flight" occurs. I personally could give a rats ass what color my neighbor is as long as the neighborhood is safe.
