Yes you are right. The parents of these kids know that it is not the clubs fault. It is the person with no regard for life. They know that the police can't be everywhere. Residents get up in arms and I do understand that but the officials can not make a person not pull the trigger. WE ALL have to instill good behavivor to our children. See you on Monday.

It's a shame the mayor of Dolton let all these night clubs be in Dolton but he doesn't care its all about the money not souls. It has been two much blood shed and God is not pleased but somebody will answer to all of these killings when jesus appears. We as a people must stand and pray for this corrupt Nation.Thats why God destroyed sodom and Gomor. Pray people pray cover your children daily in the blood of Jesus.

How many Church does the village of Dolton have. Still not one of these so call church have said anything about the young people coming out to these clubs. So we can pray,pray, and pray some more. If people don't make a stand then it will go on. We need the people of Dolton to say that 17 - 20 should not be in the Clubs. They should be in school and at home. And say it loud at the village hall meeting.

So does any one know how many police are out in the streets at one time?

I heard the Mayor say that Dolton has 54 police officers total at one of our block club meetings. When we split that up into three shifts, you end up with only 18 officers per shift. That is Not nearly enough IMO for a village with a crime rate as high as Dolton's.

I think it much less. Because of sick and Vacations. We do have a lot of
crime in Dolton.

All three shifts worth of officers probably work 5 days a week. Some of those 54 police officers are working the other 2 days a week. This lowers the number of on duty officers even further. OMG, we are all sitting ducks!

We do not have 54 officers! That is false! My understanding it is about 35, if that. And there are generally only 3-4 officers on the night shift to patrol a community of 25,000+ citizens.

We have enough negativity impacted on us, as it is. Why would you want this emphasize? It's reported to the proper authorities and that's who it needs to be reported to; LAW ENFORCEMENT. I simply do not understand why on earth folks posting about wanting all the bad being announced, bringing the property down any further. As we all now the media doesn't give a darn about these small urban communities and they only report and sensationalize the negative! Yes, a major hoodlum, thug, troublemaker who is said on the street to be gang-banger got shot! Who is to say, how many people he has hurt! Word on the street a female was shot along with him, don't know her background.

Citizens need to speak up and get these thugs charged and locked up! But no one says anything!

Yes and No There are suppose to be, but then you couldn't be
17 and get in the clubs. Mayor Lewis was at the 205 school meeting
said he was here for the kids. Sure he is they are getting shot
and stab at the clubs. That seem ok with him. He doesn't seem to care
as long as his friend Mr Ricky rakes in the money and we get stuck with the law suits in Dolton. Maybe he can pay for the one at Mr Rickys.

So what the press was there and the issues did not make the news. WHAT does that do for the problems in Dolton? Nothing. e have had a number of things on the news like the police driving over the youth on the sidewalk, it changed nothing. False statements were made and never any more news on that. Dolton Citizens need to stand up for all incidents and not some. The press knows we are a do nothing town so they basically do nothing too.

What do you mean the police driving over the youth? Yeah, they just chased the guy down and ran him over on purpose. SARCASM! It's interesting you didn't make mention that the youth was pulled over and being questioned for a robbery that had just transpired and left a young man shot on the sidewalk. Then that same so called youth took off on his bike, and kept going after the police told him to stop. Then he was chased. The grass was wet and he slid under the car! Funny you didn't make mention to that. Oh, yeah they also found a gun on that same youth. The media didn't go on about that incident because that youth as you called him, WAS IN THE WRONG! His own aunt said she hope this incident has shaken him up! Seems to me he is troublesome!!!!! Not in school, no job, but out riding his bike in the early morning, with a gun accompanied with other thugs!

The media only wants to exploit Dolton and deem it as ghetto and whack! And when they can't do that, they won't take any interest! People were talking about Thornridge being made into a one-grade academy at the board meeting. Many are against it. However, the media won't cover that. That's about education and molding our youth.

There are scores of hard-working, educated people here! Me being on of them. These social ills are going on all over the Chicagoland area with all these projects being torn down. All the aide recepients are gettting nice rehabbed housing on their Section 8. However, instead of appreciating a better place to live, they bring that same mentality with them. People need to get off their ends and raise their children right, instead of expecting teachers, law-enforcers, ministers helping them raise them!!!!!! Then BMW (blame, moan, whine) about the police and the village! We were millions of dollars in debt with the Shaw administration. Now everybody want/expect all this change. Why wasn't it demanded back then!

Yeah, under age 18 (like 17), is 10:30 PM on weeknights,(school nights, which includes Sundays) and midnight on Friday and Saturday.

EXCEPT, you can go out to Mr. Ricky's or Secrets and stay out until you are either shot, stabbed, robbed, beaten up, or run over by a car. Where's the parents? And why aren't they complaining to the state, since Mayor Lewis and the Trustees are doing NOTHING!

the tax payers in these communities like Dolton Harvey Riverdale Cal Park and Cal City, which is pretty much all black needs to vote out all the [email protected] politicians and get some people with integrity. These collard green,westside jake pimps are running down these towns and stealing as much as they can, not to mention aiding in the destruction of these communities. We can only blame ourselves for allowing these conditions to plague where we live because if we dont care, they sure is hell dont either. the things that these politicians get away with only will get worse. it would be nice if the feds would go forward and investigate these crooked ones out here!!!!!

There you have it and I agree. People don't report crime but come here and BMW (bitch, moan and whine) about it. Neighborhood Watch is nonexistant. Killings happening in Dolton every week end up being "ho hum" topics with the news media because it's too commonplace, not isolated incidents. Murders, beatings, robberies are only sensational when they happen in Bucktown, Orland, Tinley Park and all. Those are isolated incidents in those communities. If you hear on the news about an overnight killing in the city, do you really give it much thought? It's terrible, but Dolton has gotten to that point. Sect. 8 is being dumped into Dolton and other towns around here and it's not being controlled. There are decent people in Dolton who pays taxes, clean there yards. Decent folk who bought homes only to be run out by lawless thugs. I'll bet most of these thugs are felons who have no right to vote, who these politcians have no business catering to. These no good heathens just sponge off of us all and wreck communities. They get free welfare and homes, wreck our town and have there hands out for more while they do crack, make babies, steal from us and don't do a dam thing for the community. Make these thugs pick up the broken glass, paint our graffit tagged buidings, remove the empty alcohol containers from our lawns and parks. Make them get up up and start cleaning our town Sunady morning at 6:00 AM. so the rest of the decent folk have a nice town to look at when they come home from church. These Sect. 8 families should be made to take drug test, not just the parents but the whole family. Any failurse and out in the street you go. End these handouts and make people work. These thugs have too much time on their hands, and an idle mind is the devils work shop.
