I want to thank the Oaklawn and Evergreen Park Police Departments for keeping the neighborhoods safe. I do think that the "protest" that was held was a horrible waste of police power. I think that the 15 or so people....YES...FIFTEEN or so people who held the protest should be billed for all of the police protection that was needed. FIFTEEN people! Historic! I think we need to start thanking our police for the jobs that they do to keep us safe. If you're in the wrong, whether you are black, white, green or purple...you are in the wrong! Thank you officers for all that you do! And for the fifteen or so people protesting...I was honking my horn and cheering for the police officers who were protecting our streets and enjoying the lovely weather while you made asses of yourselves!

I wouldn't be surprised if this happened. Both EP and OL are STUCK in the 1950s, if not earlier. OL, as a town that is tailored to rich, white, business professionals, deserves rioting and nothing but the absolute worst for what it has done to people who are not part of the whole "95th Street demographic." It has been going on long, long, long before Dave was mayor. I am sure Dave was cheerleading the OL and EPPD on like the fool that he is. No wonder both OL and EP suck.

Oak Lawn is a mixture of different nationalities who come here to give their families a better life. If you think your privileged to steal, sell drugs, or indulge in illegal or gang behavior- go back to the slum you came from. There is a reason your leaving your neighborhood don't ruing mine! And that's coming from Mexican American

That, I guess, is one of the good things about modern day Oak Lawn. Besides the usual German, Polish, Irish, English (British) crap, we have Middle Eastern (not just Arabs), Hispanics (not just Mexicans), Asians, and even mixed race. It's not just Oak Lawn, it's in many other municipalities too. That is a good thing.

The media never should have covered the story. They're nothing but trouble makers.

there is no racial profiling, its just a bunch of lazy americans who want to use their race as an excuse to get more free shit and special treatment. get over yourselves. being black is more popular and respected these days than being white is. give me a break with racial shit.
