Poor Shadow,
I know you will be shocked to hear this because you evidently think Mayor Lewis keeps you in his inner circle. The Inspector General reports directly to Mayor Lewis, stated in the village ordinance. It's Lewis' call if he wants to share the info with the trustees or village residents. You see he hasn't. Why don't you ask him how many and what kinds of issues have been reported to him. Apparently, he doesn't want you and others to know what illegal activities have been reported by Shaw. It's so sad that you think Mayor Lewis is even trying to address some of the issues that he could easily remedy. Lewis doesn't give a d____. If it ain't related to his cell phone, he hardly has a moment to spend on it. If you were at the Monday board meeting, you heard that he is more interested in his status in Africa and providing funds to the group that named him a bullshit king than providing even a few funds to help keep the youth of Dolton off the streets. It's ok to help Africa, but chairty begins at home. Shadow, you obviously have a huge vendetta against the Late Mayor and his brother. Sad to say, it's eating you up inside. In addition, the picture is not the issue at all. Forget it! Never put it back! Move on! Picure or no picture, Dolton is still losing with its current mayor. Your positive input could fill up a thimble. About Trustee Green-why are you on her case. You've got a certified drunk, Jefferson; a wanna be minister, Lowe; a strange white guy who thinks he's black, Lambert; a phony who is not to be trusted, Harris; a village attorney who is pimping the village on a consistent basis, Levison; and a manager who is tap dancing on cloud nine because he has been returned to power, Hergoz. Why Trustee Green? Even if she mumbles and makes faces, at least she sober and can respond intelligently to issues of the village. Shadow, why don't you run for trustee in next years election or would you have too much to lose? Uh huh'

It appears that everyone has something to say , but are they doing anything about it? If the citizens of Dolton , dont take a stand this madness will continue as it has been for th last 10years or better. The amount of debt the village has is to be ashamed . With 25000 residents it makes absolutly no sense.Start attending meeting and asking questions. Talking about someone who ran for Mayor in the last election and making a stand for someone to run a two different things!!! So who will we see on the ballot next!!! Make a differnce and Change what you already have thats not working!!!!!!!!!!

Hmmm, is that the way to gain support from the community. The police are silent and the community are silent, does this sound crazy or what? I repeat the Killing Must Stop!!!
Nice EXCUSE, but still no reason to keep silent! The police could have used that opportunity to speak up and ask the community to come forward with any information. To not even ask for the help of others is insane. They could have said something that let the community know that they were quote "working hard to solve the Crime" , but instead they acted as foolish as those who see crimes, but won't tell anyone who can help. The police department does'nt set an example and it's the same old tired excuses!

They are silent because an investigation is taking place and they are trying to apprehend these thug/gangbangers. I'm so tired of these hoodlums ruining our town! My understand is that the victim and the assilant(s) had been feuding (gang-banging) for quite some time. They obviously followed this young lad and took his life, senselessly. When will these young people learn? What are they killing each other for? They don't have terroritory. They aren't ballers or shot-callers. They are mere thugs...hanging out in the streets fighting for no reason. It's so sad.

i just wanted to say that the people new priscott love him ,i must say he was a respectable young man and i love him like one of my on . the crowd he hung with are not trouble makers or gang bangers . i really hate when people assume to much and listen to many stories that was told from people who didnt no him. and far as dolton police they no what is going on and really turn the other cheeck . they make the victims out to be the bad ones. i seen it for my self . there response is, leave it to the streets and thats whats been happening in dolton .and before priscott died there was 3 more young men lost there lives within 2or3 months apart .its time step up before we want have any kids to enroll in school after the summer ends .

There is a shooting or a fatal (murder) shooting about once a week in Dolton. Most citizens are not aware but this is the bonafide truth. It's time we start notifying the local news station ourslef via email, and anonymous phone calls. While we are at it we need to draw enough attention by contacting the State Police via email, letter and or anonymous phone calls. Enough complaints just might prompt an investigation. At least give it a try!
There was just another shooting near Thornridge High School today 5/24/10 One dead, and one critically injured.Finally made the news Dolton, I can't wait to see if Dolton Police makes a statement!

I knew Prescott very well...i know his parents very well... I am saddened to read that people still are judging books by what others say about them! That young man was a very well mannered and honorable young gent. The news media will print anything that sells newspapers and promotes fear like gangbanger news! Prescott was no gangbanger. He was an inspiration to his young siblings to do the right thing and you will recieve the finer things in life. PLEASE know the facts and not the street gossip that young bone headed kids recite before typing falsehoods and spewing rumors that were handed down to you. Gangbanger? no. athelete? yes. Thug? no. big hearted kid with aspiring dreams to be something special? YES. my heart goes out to that family that lost such a shining star!!!

I reported the facts. The police don't make statements to the media or ask for the assistance of the public to solve the crimes, what don't you understand about that? I have reported more crimes than you would know, however I do NOT REPORT THEM ON DOLTON TOPIX. I report them to law enforcement, God Bless!

Good morning! Who knows, Prescott was protecting himself while these little boys are shooting at him and others. What police record??? Even if he was a thug gang banger or whatever, its not ok for you to say whatever u want. He has family and friends that love and miss him dearly, so please stop being disrespectful. If you lost a family member to senseless violence maybe you would be more sensitive to this situation. But in mean time shut the fuck up! Bitch!
