Ladies and gentlemen, we at war. I went to bed Saturday night listening to gun fire, police sirens, and my dog barking. I ask myself where do I live? I have lived in Dolton all my life and I am struggling to stay. Black people wake up. We have to want more for ourselves. We talk about time for change but have you changed. What have you done for your community. Have you met your neighbors. Yes I am talking about the people the express their views on this forum. The bottom line is we care. We care enough to speak out. Let’s stop fighting. Shaw people, Lewis people, Mickens people, House people, or whoever else that ran for elected official, what does that all mean. We are all Gods people. Black People unite!!!! We are so busy fighting with each other and we are not looking at the big picture.

Our small village is hurting. The attitude of people need to change. People are laughing at us.

Why do we need nightclubs in Dolton? Does it bring in revenue? If so, for who and at what cost? On Saturday a man was shot in the leg. I could have been in the head. That could have been your son or daughter shot or doing the shooting. Wake up people!!! We are at War.

Thornton man going to his car at 11:30 am in Riverdale was shot in head by police. One shot to the head. Whatever the reason was death warranted. The attitude must change.

Let’s make a stand, let’s take Dolton back. Open up your minds and hearts. Step outside of your comfort zone. You make not like someone but please work with someone. Let’s put the neighbor back in the Hood.

If my plea is falling on deaf ears let it be. But if you hear me please do something.

I have been i Dolton for 16years.I'm over 30 mow but kicked up some dust as a juvie...But now it has gotten ridiculous,people getting stuck up on their front porch at the stores,polish joint,ant people losing lives at each one of these liquor stores for crying out loud they used to sell sandwiches out of the store on wood lawn,chicago road(dolton foods)their was 3 or 4 lounges(taverns) not nightclub's and the POLICE....what a joke(anybody remember JP and FLOYD). when younger we used to travel up to NITROS off Mannheim RD.after get the hell out of stone park. but money is the root of all evil.These clubs are not whats the only thing killing us.the government,the town used fine people up the ass for their property appearance,and there ordinances that allowed so many section 8 houses per block.Not to say something is wrong with section 8 but when there are 25 houses on a block and 10 and are section 8 and the slum lord is not keeping the house up the tenant wont either.look how many houses are empty. Just drive up any-block and u can tell who takes pride in where they live.About ten years ago Dolton would vote to have put out for violence and disrupt.Sad to all say it was predominantly White then.My people what are we doing we need to wake up and take back where we live. stop building night clubs and liquor stores.It will look like 43rd street in the mid 90's before2011 mark these words

A man was shot near Eldorado's and he dragged himself there and no one knows if the man is still alive or not.

DOLTON IS NOT LONG GONE...There are still plenty of areas where people care about their homes here in Dolton. They only have 10-12 workers with Public Works. Did anyone think of volunteer work to help. I could see this happening, years ago we had volunteer firemen. That worked! Better yet get some of these young people walking the streets day and night, with nothing to do, to help. Years ago, the Village had young ones, painting the curbs, fire hydrants, park benches and tables. Public Works does not have alot of help, but I think they would appreciate some assistance sometimes.

Those were not volunteers chucklehead they were summer help. Also the reason you do not have them anymore is because the town cannot pay them nor guarantee their safety. Would you let you son or grandchild, neice, or nephew go and help. If so call them lmfao..

Hey Folks Shaw has been gone for nearly a year now. The town has voted in new poeple even though the same people. The employees of the village should do thier jobs plan an simple. I have not seen a street sweeper, help them do what, they took the job do the work. The police as we all know are letting the town be taken over by the gangs and drug dealers, we have so much crime and you never hear of it till you speak to a neighbor or friend. Chief Fox brings people to pep him up at meetings. We know he does not have the skills to run that department. Mayor Lewis say call us tell us what is happening? Are the police blind they are driving the street all day and night DONT THEY SEE IT? We call and they take forever to come out. if the police get 3 calls from any area I would think they would beef up security, but no you have 5 people from one block saying their homes were invaded. Duh. Also the Trustees have no clue what they are supposed to be doing. They just read notes, never go and find out what is going on and how they can help the employees and citizens. Also one large female Trustee goes( around town defaming and attacking employees and threaten them. There is trouble at the top of the town and it needs to be fixed. The morale of the village is low and if the top of the group dont fix it it will not get better - for any of us.

In our African American neighborhoods we are riddled with churches and liquor vendors. If you don't vote and or go to village meetings please take a moment to shut the heck up! The Mayor and his people work for the people of Dolton. "NOW YOU TELL TWO FRIENDS AND THEY TELL TWO FRIENDS AND SO ON" or shhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhhh!!!!!

DOLTON IS NOT THE WORST PLACE ON THE MAP. WE HAVE OUR PROBLEMS LIKE ANY OTHER TOWN. THE POLICE CAN ONLY BE IN ONE PLACE AT ONE TIME AND BAD GUYS DON'T COMMIT FELONIOUS ACTS WHEN COPS ARE LOOKING AT THEM. THE CLUB CLOSED A LONG TIME AGO THAT WAS RUN BY THE CC HILLS POLICE CHIEF. JUST LIKE THE OTHER CLUBS THEY CAUSED SOOOOOOOOOOOO MANY PROBLEMS! WE GENERALLY KNOW AND SEE WHAT'S GOING WRONG AND KNOW WHO'S DOING IT. THE PROBLEM IS THAT WE DON'T GET INVOLVED UNTIL IT HAPPENS TO US. RALLY YOUR TROOPS AND LET YOUR VOICES BE HEARD. DON'T YOUR NEIGHBORHOODS AWAY, HELP YOURSELVESAND STOP WHINING.

Six more people shot early this morning in Dolton. At least one possibly three dead. Police Chief Fox is withholding information like he always does. It is time for us to get the State Police or Cook County Sheriff's police to patrol our village and take the streets back. Write your State Representative Will Davis, your Congressman Jesse Jackson, and your State Senator James Meeks. We need help in Dolton. Before you or one of your family members become the next victim of violence.

A ploice officer told me that just last friday, the guy that ran for mayor, riley rogers, caught a guy carrying a sawed off 12 gauge shotgun by the citgo gas station on sibley and michigan. He said that he is a cook county police investigator. He's even trying to clean up the community.
