Uninformed Resident

Chicago, IL

#1 Sep 6, 2010
Why in the world would the Palos Heights Police Department call the residents of Palos Heights to inform us armed man on the loose in the Palos Heights WestGate area and not post a thing on the Palos Hieghts news website??? Why scare me and prevent me from sleeping well and then drop off the face of the earth. I want info.

They were really looking for someone. They were saerching up and down the streets - multiple police officers from multiple cities.


They had helicopters out, police officers driving the streets, stopping all cars, walking and searching in our bushes, backyards, garages, and even our garbage cans with their weapons drawn.

They were protecting you but obviously had their resources set on handling the calls they were getting and working the police out.

They also called us back and said they called off the search. They went up and down my street multiple times - in my backyard twice. I saw at least 2 officers in the back of my house and 6 out front plus all kinds of police cars driving by repeatedly for hours.

The helicopters came out but aparently had no luck either.

The guy got away.
