For those wondering why Route 6 East of Cedar Rd was closed the past couple of hours: Three black armed bank robbers were being chased by Tinley police, crashed and escaped. New Lenox, Tinley, Will County, State and many other police from surrounding towns were here warning us to stay indoors and had a man hunt. Fortunately, they captured all escapees. Unfortunately, none of the 3 were injured in the accident nor shot by the police. Thank you to all 19 plus officers for keeping us on route 6 updated and safe. We are glad that you were not harmed and most grateful.

A fantastic team effort by the officers of New Lenox, Frankfort, Manhattan, Mokena, Will County and Illinois State police agencies. The suspects are in custody quickly and all officers left unharmed. Now if the court system in Cook County could do the right thing it will be a win all around.

No one ever takes the time to give our police officers the credit they deserve.
New Lenox should be proud. I agree this was a fantastic team effort.
From all of us THANK YOU for keeping all of us safe. Every one of these officers deserves a pat on the back for a fine job.
This was a very dangerous situation that all officers fear. Armed robbers fleeing at high speed,darkness of night and felons on foot in a large area.
In less then 15 minutes YOUR police department had them in custody and no one, suspect or officers were injured.
I am Damn proud of all of you and will sleep better tonight knowing you are out there.

I just got home from work and as I do each night I went online to review the local news of the day.
When my kids get up tomorrow morning instead of heading to the tv for cartoon or video game hero's I am going to tell them of the real heroes that exist right here in our community. The children in the Home of Proud Americans have someone to look up to, real hero's not something created in Hollywood. An outstanding job which is deeply appreciated and admired by everyone in our community. From the bottom of our hearts, Thank you New Lenox Police for a job well done.

You know what public servants are most likely to die in the line of duty? This group also does its job without killing 4-6 people per day.

Garbage men.

Yet when a garbage man dies we never see the flashy funerals with "some gave all, all gave some" and such boisterously everywhere like we do when a cop dies.

I wonder why that is.

Ashamed? You Are Funny! That's your only thought? Three armed robbers that were running through our yards and endangering not only our lives but the officers and any driver on Route 6 (when they crashed) obviously were not ashamed. Sadly, animals with such lack of respect and feeling of entitlement only learn lessons the hard way - through pain or extermination - not 6 months behind bars, bending over for their friends. These creatures do not deserve a 2nd chance. Lock and load I say - just make sure you only need one shot to do the job right. Again thank you to all the law enforcement that was here, by the outstanding remarks on TOPIX, know you are appreciated.

Well let me speculate for you. First a lot of garbage men are now private contractor hires. Secondly a lot of police officers and fireman give their lives while attempting a heroic act. Third those communities, meaning the police and fire communities do this out of respect. I myself have attended numerous police funerals. Many of the officers attending are doing so on their own time. The town will usually let the officer use the squad to represent the town. And probably the main thing is that you see it, as the news media deems it newsworthy. The towns do not call the press and ask them to cover these events. Its the same for returning fallen service members. I know I myself was a part of the procession for Jake Lowell. And again on my own time, with use of the police vehicle. I can tell you this they are profound and moving events that shake me up every time and I am damn proud to have helped bring a brother home with respect to his final resting place.

I have no disrespect for garbage men, but those are just a few quick reasons I can think of. I do agree they have a tough job. Many good improvements though. Those new trucks with the arms that come out and grab and empty the whole can. That has got to save a ton of injuries.

Negative comments on this subject are not needed, the community is grateful to our police department for what they did. If you have a problem with it then have the guts to voice your opinion at the next village board meeting and see what a negative response you will get. Stick to crayons and coloring books not public websites until you grow up and enter the adult world.

Your issue is with police authority. Your concern for garbage men is contrived.

Cops honor each. Garbagemen have that right to. Maybe they should do it. Shine up a garbage truck a put the coffin on top and have garbage men play the bag pipes. The garbage men are great they take trash away two can curbside service all for 12.85 a month.

You should be ashamed they are criminals probably career. They are just gonna be a drag on the system and the tax payers for the rest of their criminal lives. However I do applaud the police for capturing them. They were probably ready to shoot if needed, but they exercised discipline.

Remind me to speak out in favour of treating criminals like animals the next time someone you care about commits a crime.

I wrote a much more hostile response. It was deleted. I'll just say that you're a terrible person who insults the families of these people by referring to them as animals. It's also disgusting that you suggest that prison rape, and even just being in prison, is pain-free.

Go spend a few years in a glorified cage and then tell me about how much of a vacation it was.

Truthfully, I apologize as animals and critters were a poor analogy on my part as I have much more respect for the 4 legged ones than I do for these criminals. When a serious crime (such as this) is committed, my concern lies with all innocent parties which our safety is at risk. I would much rather see these criminals destroyed than run the risk of any family member, friend, law enforcement, myself or some other innocent bystander become injured or killed due to the criminals actions. You speak from experience? If not yourself, maybe family or friend? Whomever you are speaking for, it was their (or your) actions that landed them in the "glorified" cage which I and other tax payers are paying for. They get what they deserve. Sad that you call yourself "concerned citizen". Just who are you concerned for? Those that choose to take no responsibility for their actions nor have any regard for others? Those that have an entitlement to steal, kill (they were armed and dangerous)and then have honest hard working taxpayers pay their legal fees and provide a five star hotel for them to be incarcerated in? How about putting more effort being concerned about the future victims of these criminals, once they are back on the streets. Sorry that your earlier response was deleted as I would love for you look even more foolish (if that's possible) than you are making yourself look right now. However, by reading your opinion, it encourages me even more how correct I feel about mine and I thank you for that. It's all about accountability, responsibility and humanity for all which you have obviously yet learned Concerned Citizen!

And, I guarantee you, I will never be able to "tell" you about a vacation in your glorified cage. You see, I was raised with values and working for what I have.
