It is so stupid with these young guys drag racing on harlem avenue. Police are suspecting drag racing from the reports I heard. Bridgeview used to be such a nice quiet town before the new mayor took over. Now it is turning into a run down town with a part time police force. Bridgeview police are notorious for doing the bare minimum when it comes to police work. All the town cares about is that stupid stadium that costs us taxpayers more and more money.

Well, before the new mayor and his cronies took over there wasn't this garbage happening in Bridgeview. Now that bridgeview is on the map as the mayor puts it we are getting a bunch of ghetto behavior in our town. My house got robbed the year the mayor opened the stadium and decided to put in sidewalks on 71st. We have been here over 45 years and was never robbed until the new mayor took over. Also, the mosque has turned Bridgeview into the middle east. And the two guys driving the Camaro had names that sound middle eastern to me. And if Bridgeview had a full time police force watching the streets like it should these things like drag racind wouldn't be going on down Harlem avenue. I mean to go a 100 miles per hour down harlem is suicide. I go the speed limit down harlem and feel like I am playing the video game frogger with so many people and the stupid things they do on harlem avenue. I think if people are caught drag racing they should be automatically sent to jail just like people that hit a construction worker can be sent to jail automatically. I am a taxpayer and beyond pissed how my taxes have been affected in Bridgeview. I mean I feel like I live in the middle east now.

Insider there was no fireworks show on 4th of july in bridgeview. So no they could not have been in a hurry to get a good seat at the fireworks show. It is sad that young people don't realize how vulnerable they are. They just don't realize that they can die from doing stupid things. I am just shocked to hear the reports of somebody driving a hundred miles per hour down harlem avenue. I have lived here all my life and never heard of something so stupid in Bridgeview. I mean where were the police when these guys were doing this. You would think they would be patrolling more on harlem especially on 4th of july. That is the one day a year with the most drunk drivers on the road. And to call the two guys that caused the accident victims shocked me in one news report. They were beyond careless and caused the deaths of an older couple because of their disreguard for public safety. I hope they catch the idiot that got away drag racing with the driver of the Camaro.

Yeah, to mr. middle eastern I say look if you don't like the way Americas do things go back to the middle east. And no I am not going to accept bridgeview as a middle eastern town. I have lived here all my life. My family as been in Bridgeview 57 years. And why is it that every time people say anything about middle easterners we are being called racist. The main problem I have is that middle easterners want to turn America into the middle east. If you want your middle eastern culture so much go back to where you came from. Start respecting the American way of life. America has laws we live by. And your women are the worst drivers I have ever seen on the roads. I think it's cuz the never drove in the middle east and now they are learning on our streets. It is like a bunch of 16 year old drivers on the road that don't understand English and can't follow the rules of the road in Bridgeview. I think what started all the problems in Bridgeview was opening that mosque and electing the mayor we have now. Harlem avenue where that crashed happened is turning into a zoo.

My heart goes to the kid that's lying in the hospital and probably doesn't know about his parents death.
To the families of the accident causer, I have no sympathy for you, sorry I tried but I can't, the wrong started by carelessness in parenthood to not monitoring what your kids do, you are supposed to be raising a good not muslim generation not a careless carefree "kids", I am surprised with their attitude they are over 20 and behaved like 5 year olds, when they are supposed to be responsible adults, that's what you get for not teaching them responsibility and above all instill the love of God/Allah in their hearts.

As for all the rest ignorant fools blaming this on middle eastern ways
1: you are so ignorant you that you call us sand monkeys when most of us come from places that are neither a desert nor has sand in it!!!!!
2: if you educate yourself a little bit on our traditions you would really appreciate us more and hate us less.
3: Please know that in Middle East and Europe and America and China and everywhere in the world there are some parents who don't know how to raise kids, and their are some kids that are just beyond advice and good parenting can't be helped, regardless or their heritage or where they come from.
No on race is superior to the other, we are all the same in front of God so stop hating the origin of the skin and start hating the origin of the problem, work towards fixing or help fix the issue at had which is "pay more attention to your kids"
Thank you for listening
Born in Middle East, raised here and there, learnt to drive here and proud of my driving
Ps: i too sometimes wonder how some women got their drivers license from the way they drive.

I personally think the country and our town is so much more worse off since the start of integrating all these different races everywhere you go. Everywhere I go there is no more white only areas. I miss that. I miss the days when you could go places and everybody was white. Now, everywhere you go it's white, black, Mexican, indan, and Asians. I mean how did all this happen. I recently went to an area to see a move that was still all white. I couldn't believe how nice and pleasant the experience was. It reminded me of the way Bridgeview was years ago. I mean years ago you never saw blacks walking down the street in Bridgeview. And all the businesses were owned by whites. Now, all the businesses in Bridgeview are mostly owned by middle easterners. They get tax breaks to open up businesses in America. People born here are struggling cuz we don't get tax breaks to help our situations like the do. And these young arabs with these sports cars playing Russian roulette driving down harlem at a hundred miles per hour are so stupid to risk hurting themselves and others. Now 4 are dead because of young guys driving recklessly.

So let me get this straight . White American or whatever kids don't cause accidents. Middle easterners and mosques are the sole reason bridge view has problems? Give me a break . Get your head out of your bigoted ass. Such an ignorant thing to say . How many non Muslim have cause drunk driving accidents? Or no Muslims caused speeding accidents? So stupid .

Well, maybe when you stop messing with everyone else's country , they will have no need to come here. If this accident involved two white kids which had nothing to do with race or religion , would we be having these asinine conversations . It tragic and stupid and a young boy lost his parents but this isn't about throwing blame on different groups of people. Don't worry soon some white kids wi cause some deaths at the hands of Christian drunk driving ....ugh so dumb

No we don't want to turn it into middle east but hey we do have the right to own businesses . You do to. No One is stopping you. You eat foods that aren't American, you use oil that doesn't belong to America, you fight against people so that they loose their country and then say we don't want your kinds here. That's rich....I mean you can sling MUDD all day long but it doesn't change anything. You just want an excuse to talk your bigoted trash.
