Deer Run condos in Oswego IL are crime-ridden dumps. 3/4 of Oswego's sex offenders live in this complex. Google it. I wouldn't live there but thank goodness for Neighborhood Watch....all the pervs and druggies/drunks keep those eye spies plenty busy.

all the druggies, drunks and perverts and thieves are on the neighborhood watch. peeking in people's windows, snooping around other peoples business, photographing anyone and everyone, calling police on nothing. certified schizophrenia activity. these people are mental. they want crime. just so they can feel like they have some authority. they have none. They fear everyone and everything when there is nothing to fear happening, they have developed mass hysteria. and magically, when a crime does happen, where was the neighborhood watch? Conveniently, nobody saw nothing. perhaps that is their real agenda.

I do not believe that ALL of the Neighborhood Watch Members are EVIL. However, I do believe that there are a few who are. Mainly Nosy, Busybodies who have NO Friends, Jobs or Lives. Some use their "Membership" in an attempt to Bully others. This particular group appears to be RACIST. One thing a Homeowners Association does not need is a HATEGROUP that is basically Endorsed by the Sheriff's Department. If the Law Enforcement Officials are giving MILITARY RANKINGS (Watch Groups have Captains and such) to Ordinary Citizens, they are not very intelligent. Empowerment of people who may already have mental health issues should be enough to cast suspicion upon the very same Law Enforcement Division that is enabling the peeping and harassment. Perhaps the real agenda, for the Sheriff's Department is to CREATE CRIME where none exists. I think it's time to focus on the Officials as well as the TROUBLEMAKERS that have Enrolled in the PEEPERS CLUB. Also, do you think that maybe some of the watch members are using the group as a cloak for THEIR drug addictions, OCD, Sexual Perversions? THEY look GUILTY. Also, it has been said that those residents who oppose the group are being targeted with Vandalism. Why? If the group is not responsible for these acts, then why haven't they caught the vandals? Does not seem difficult to figure out. And, by the way, I heard that a 90+year old lady greased her fence to keep kids from jumping it. Why did NO ONE see a 90 year old woman with a bucket of grease? Really? Cops said they believed her. Who she covering for. I am glad I am not a cop, appearantly they remove your brain when you're sworn in!

I lived here for awhile in the mid 2000's. Wasn't that bad really, but remember back then a 2 bedroom went for 75-80k. I ended up selling as the association dues kept getting jacked up. I'll admit there was a gang element there and probably drugs sold, but I never heard of any child molesters living there in fact I thought they had a ban on renting out to Child molesters?

Absolutely untrue. I have live here 17 years and we have zero crime issues at Deer Run.

It is quite apparent that, since the previous board, for the most part, resigned, we are seeing more and more low-lifes on the property. Crimes all around us. The police seem to be here on a daily, or bi-daily basis. I am starting to get concerned. Our so called neighborhood watch doesn't seem to be deterring crime. A couple months ago, I heard that one of the board member's renters was shooting at his girlfriend in the parking lot. Our pool never opened and I was told that the only person seen alone in the clubhouse during the winter was that same board member. Did he sabotage our pool? We never had these problems when Frank and Cary were taking care of the property. Frank lowered our dues. Is our new leaders going to raise them? Also, why are they dumping Baum Property? I don't think we can trust our new leaders. They look and act crazy? I wish I never bought a place here.

Things have gotten progressively worse. It seems like our parking lot is full of junk or abandoned cars and the grounds are full of garbage and pet waste. I wonder if our complex is going to be a ghetto from now on. Most residents I speak to are afraid to go out at night. It never used to be like this.

Bring back Frank and Cary if at all possible.

I heard that the Board of Directors is down to two members and nobody is willing to run for any position on the board because those the current members refuse to resign. Word is that they have destroyed the property intentionally. Apparently, there are drug dealers in the common areas and perhaps one on the board of directors. Garbage is everywhere and there are abandoned cars dumped in the lot. I am with George on this one. If Frank and Cary were still here, I am convinced that we would not have to live in a ghetto.
