Two people were shot today. That's the second round of gunfire in the neighborhood in about 72 hours. Shots were fired in the 400 block of nearby Prior Street early Monday morning.

Yes, I'd like to move, too. But who would buy my house, a house I've owned for more than 10 years? The answer: no one, right now. Besides, why should I leave? I am a home owner with not one but two jobs. My house is a beautiful brick Georgian -- anyone would be happy to have me and my house in their neighborhood. It's the shit heads and gang members who should be forced out, not me. And I'm not backing down.

I used to live on Seeser and for some lack of judgment on my part, I then moved to Hunter. This was more than 5 years ago and it sounds to me that nothing has changed. I know that the SPNA tries their best to clean up the area. I know that the JPD does the same. However, there is only so much that they can do. The only way to clean it out is to get rid of the rentals. The homeowners care about their neighborhood. The homeowners are not the ones in the middle of the street shooting at one another. The homeowners DESERVE a safe place to live and raise their kids. St. Pats is a gorgeous area...but alas the trash obviously still needs to be taken out.

Ya'll need to be careful though...it's not even the end of April and they're already shooting at each other.

I lived their up until I was five years old(1984). On Blackman St. Then, it was a pretty nice neighborhood. I was told. I do have some memories of the neighborhood being nice. I was told that it was middle class. Now, self induced lower class RENTERS! These buildings need to be converted back to single family, or torn down. It is saddening that such a beautiful neighborhood is turning into a ghetto :( This is the City of Joliets fault for letting this happen..

I used to live on Seeser, but then moved out in the summer of 2006, seems like it has been getting a little more violent then before. But hey, what can anybody do, its the gangstas that need to stop, but i know they aint never gonna stop the bangin. Stand up Seeser St. This is were I grew up at half my life.
