<quoted text> Don't you guys ever learn. When you speak the truth your helping me prove my point. When you said "aging lower middle class white people" these were young once and Berwyn was still clean and crime free. So proving my point that from the beginning these past residents which so happen to be white as you stated have kept Berwyn nice and they died out or sold their homes to Mexicans.So these new residents which are not white changed Berwyn to what it is today.
Also you can check berwynpoliceblotter.com to see the crimes that were never committed in the past. Like when I lived there to hear cars booming Mexican music that you had to impound the car!!!
Maybe you should stick to what Aztek does when he can't win a argument and call me names. This way you get all that think like you giving atta boy replies instead of having me bitch slap you with facts. You have been schooled by rico.
First of all, you have to finish school to school anyone! You keep on repeating music garbage, Does music hurt you? Alot of the whites back then did make Berwyn filthy as well, I was here back then, it's the same but just the demographics make a difference. Alot of racism was present but it didn't really bother me. Besides, the damn Pr's are making Berwyn into Logan Square.

Another thing is that in working class communities that ARE nice, the older residents care about who they sell their house to. I've even heard of them wanting to meet the people, because they care about the block. Didn't happen in Berwyn, which leads me to believe that the former residents weren't of a particularly high caliber.

The white people I bought my house from back in the 1980's talked politics with me.
It turned out we were both Republicans.

I think your post just showed what is wrong with our city and failing school system. Tell you what kid, go back to school next month and pick up an extra English class. Funny and cool don't disguise the fact he was a punk who got what he deserved for bringing a bb gun to a mans fight. As for you, your only toll should be your mind and defending scum gets you nowhere unless your a high priced lawyer in a three piece suit working in some silk satin firm, I can tell by just your vocabulary you are not headed in that path. So you need to really decide where to take your life because being a dime store hustler gets you nowhere.

Chris wasn't a gang member but he did like to start problems and did had problems with people. But Chris was a decent guy and had a lot of people that liked him but you can't be saying on here that he didn't hang with gangs and didn't start problems with anyone because that's not true.

I apologize for the mispelled words in my post I am writing from a phone and it's harder to go back and make the proper corrections.
If you have cockroaches in your home you should be more like Mexicans and clean your house!. Also, moving away from Berwyn will probably not help you in any way. Ignorance and racism won't get you far. Chris was an amazing friend and many loved him. He was not a gang banger and never discriminated against anyone. You should feel ashamed to have thoughts like that. Let alone share those thoughts for others to see you distasteful human scum!
Sincerely,
Everyone.

After reading only a few comments from you and Resident, I must admit it saddens me that you both feel the need to harass a grieving family. Yes Chris acted out of anger. He got into a fight with an obviously unstable and reckless idiot. It is not Chris's fault some dumb ass was carrying an illegal firearm. You two should feel ashamed, given the chance to have known someone like Chris would be a privilege for the both of you. Acting like children and arguing a point that is obviously UNWELCOMED. I must say the way you talk about how much nicer your beloved Berwyn was years ago is a joke! Do the research. If your so educated why would you waste your time feeding into this fight? I would now like to point out how you have shown to have alot less class and dignity than the Rivera family who ignored your negative comments and rants.
