Well what did the mayor said on the news-they are keeping it hush hush so the detectives can catch the guy. Well the more people that know about it and if they describe the guy- we can all be more aware and watch for him. The more eyes watching the better the chance of catching him I would think.

She was stumbling all over herself on the news. She's in the hot seat now because she has no answer and the clowns she calls trustees are also blind. Party time is over gang, start working for the people who elected you. Detectives can't even solve a burglary with photos and names let alone something like this.Put on a bike patrol and shoot to kill order.Hey, that's it, capture and hang in the village green for all to see.

Can the park district or village give a self defense class so that people can be prepared to defend? I am a brown belt and I am ready to defend myself because I walk that area with my dog. I can talk to my female instructor who has done self defense classes.
That is a great idea... please keeps us posted.

What is the difference between markam dolt on Posen Robbins & midlothian----nothing!!!! Have you people opened your eyes??? The building inspectors do nothing about falling down neglected properties, the village does not enforce crime free housing, the schools are titled the lowest. Income level in the state & test poorly...the police and village minimize crime focusing on raking up tickets instead of community service & fighting crime. There is still numerous law suits out there against the police..which the village doesn't address publicly...There are no amenities for tax dollars...they don't fund any holiday activities so what are the good points to owning any property---I would tell my worst enemy fighting for a home isn't worth it when the police or village are not behind you....life is too short. A new grocery store won't make it better just create a new place for crime....

She sounded like Spider the stuttering pr**k. I realize its cool to see yourself on TV but maybe it would be a good idea to let the Police Chief speak to the media regarding crime and ongoing criminal investigations. This was definitely a media fail.

They should have got Fat jean the Drama Queen to talk. She was right next to the robbery in Crestwood and is still being overly dramatick about it. How do I know, I still watch her stuff her face from nerves.

I've read through all of the posts, & we're still missing something; where is the description? I know it's not politically correct, but who are we protecting? Is this man younger or older? Is he tall, short, thin, or heavy? What nationality is he? There have been too many recent incidents to hide behind political correctness. Who are we watching for?

Tickets and fees are there main focus. This is not Midlothian from 1960, it is 2014 and you live in south east cook county. Please don't act like this doesn't happen in surrounding neighborhoods daily. They need to go to approaching and avoiding the media school. Laughing and shaking make you look even more inexperienced than you actually are. This goes for police, mayor and trustees. Than telling people we are avoiding sharing the details, how dumb are you? My church friend is right, all of the smart employees at the Village are gone and we have Rybak to blame. Thanks for updating your residents with what is going on in the Village. Now go play golf and pretend you have this mess under control.

I am not a resident of Midlo, but have family in the unincorporated part. The response from this mayor is reprehensible, and no mercy should be afforded to her or anyone in her cabinet next election.

The village of Midlothian/PD can easily set up an alerts system for FREE in a matter of minutes, that will reach a large portion of the community.

1) Setup an OFFICIAL twitter account ie.@MIDLOalerts, etc.
2) Setup a Twitter Mail account to update the account via village email

http://twittercounter.com/pages/twittermail/

3) Post an message on the Village Website, and contact the Southtown, OF Patch, and other media advertising this temporary alert system.

4) Residents can simply follow @MIDLOalerts or whatever on twitter via website, or smartphone app. Even better residents can follow for alerts via TXT messages for near realtime alerts.

To get text messages they could do the following;

send a text message to 40404, with the body of the message "FOLLOW @MIDLOalerts"

you can easily stop alerts by messaging 40404 with "UNFOLLOW @MIDLOalerts"

You can also mute alerts, or UNSUBCRIBE all together.

This would seriously only take minutes to setup, and anyone who is the least bit tech savvy could do it.

Anyone who is familiar with text messaging, even if they are not savvy should be able to get the alerts using the SMS commands above.

As a Rock Island rider I follow a Metra account via text messaging to get alerts on delays, etc.

Midlo residents on another note should demand that MPD switch their radio network from Blue Island dispatch to Southwest Central with Crestwood, Palos, ETC, and revert to unencrypted transmissions for dispatch. In doing so it will help keep concerned citizens aware of crime hotspots in the community, and add an extra set of eyes on the streets. MPD is on an encrypted trunk of the Cook County Sheriff's system now, and the public is blacked out from getting any unfiltered/realtime information regarding crime in Midlo. Take back your town, demand transparency.(Detectives and NARCS, SWAT should still keep their sensitive communications private, and that would be a reasonable compromise)

---

And for those speaking of a reverse 911 system, the towns that have it don't use it properly or to its full potential. Oak Forest for example has it, and only once used it for a police matter around 24hrs after the fact when they were searching for a missing person with dementia. Every other time they ALERTED us it was a call advertising a parade, OAK FEST, or some other crap that should be done via flyer or the cable channel only. Alerts for things like water main breaks (plumbing shutoffs), downed wires, or bad accidents shutting down major areas in town are never given, those and major crime alerts are what these systems should be used for.

I hope you catch this guy, and thank god for the silver lining that he attacked these women without a sexual assault. MPD better step up, before something even worse happens.

Great ideas! I love it! You should forward this to our mayor! These days, it's almost dumb to not utilize social media.
