I grew up in Maywood in the 60s. Graduated from Proviso East. I hate to see Maywood get invaded by these worthless thugs

Good - string them up in the city square and let us throw bricks - maybe use their own guns on them

We need to stop being so "politically correct" and deal with these thugs the correct way. Give 'em a taste of their own medicine.

Take away the profits from illegal drugs and the gangs won't have money to fund themselves, let alone attract the next generation

Since Soldier Field won't be used til footall season, I have a solution to the gang problem. Every time a gangbanger is arrested he/she should be put on a bus and driven to Soldier Field. They would then be given a loaded gun.
The last creep left standing could be temporarily in charge til the next bus comes.

17 more people receiving socialized health care. Must be nice. Probably get dental and eye care also. Too bad it's not available to the rest of us. Even with health insurance many of us can't afford the bills.

i had to drive through Maywood a few months ago, if I were a druggie I could have got anything i wanted, the dealers had an open air market and while they kept the street safe because they didn't want to disturb biz, but the junkies from the area get on the L train go to Oak Park or Chicago to rob and terrorize, chalk one up for the good guys. The sad truth is someone will step in to fill the void. Maybe if the cops arrested the rich suburbanites that go there to buy drugs a real message will be sent out

Yeah, hip hip hooray! Meanwhile, robbers, rapists and murderers are released from the jails to make room for non-violent drug offenders. Everbody uses drugs in America, but only young blacks go to jail for it.

It's about time something is done in maywood.I've lived here a long time and i'm sick and tired of all the b.s that goes on here.Maybe now they can start on the latin kings that are taking over the north side of maywood.Don't call 911 it's useless in this town. I think they need to overhaul the whole damn town starting with the village management!!!!!!!

It's amazing that we all want drug dealer off the streets, yet, the government seem to let it flow in this county.
No drugs, no police, no jails, no criminals, no judges, no... you get my point.
When the government gets tired of spending drug money...sorry I was thinking out loud :)
