It is not that bad if you are driving through to go to work, there are people who live in this neighborhood that is getting sick and tired of all the stuff that is going on. The gang is getting out of control with the shootings and drug dealing, The other day i saw a kid about nine or ten sit there give the gang hadshake and rode out with them. And then you have city of summit laying off cops when they need to keep them on the street, and now the state police come in here thinking that everyone is a gangbanger talking shit to them when some are not. I think if they bring in the state cops maybe they need to have a brief on them who the gang bangers are since the cops keep tabs around them.
I have kids and sometimes i do not want to take them out, cause i am scared they might get shot or i will get shot because these lil gang bangers dont have no sense.

No they dont cause they think its cool to be a gangbanger now.There parents need to see who there kids are hanging around with.The summit adm is a joke starting with the MAYOR down to his little puppet POLICE CHIEF who has no clue how to run a police dept.The residents need to get to the board meetings maybe the MAYOR will finally see they need to make some big changes but sorry residents JOE doesnt run the town JUDY OR LOUIE does so good luck. PS DUCK when u hear gunshots because im sure there be alot more coming up

I agree with everybody, except with "WHY" saying their scared to drive to work though Summit, the town has problems, but unless your driving through the side streets or driving down Archer Ave. at 4a.m. when the local bars are closing and your flashing gang signs from your car, it's not at all dangerous. Look I've lived in Summit all my life the Gang problem fluctuates, but has always been here, it was quite for a while, but in the past 5 years it's gotten bad. Rumor is that different Gangs have started to appear in the town making things worse. My take on it the Mayor is a joke and everyone else around him is too, I could sit here all day and write about what's wrong, how the citizens of Summit-Argo pay all this money in Taxes and the town is still considered Garbage, to be honest whenever I tell people how much we pay in taxes they look at me like I'm crazy for paying that much to live in this town. Yes Summit has a gang problem, Yes the local police tend to look the other way, look its NO SECRET, where all the local gangs hangout. Summit to me is a beautiful town that needs new leadership in its local government, only then will it trickle down to the streets, you have to clean house before you get rid of the Roaches. So if the Mayor is reading this which I doubt, start doing your job cause Iím guarantying next time elections come around their will be someone that's going to run against you.

Hopefully who ever runs is not getting backed by LOUIE because nothing will change except the name in front of the police station.Clean house is actually the only way to start in this town.Summit is a great town or was and when everyone that is employed by the village or police dept is so negative because of the adm theres a problem.It sucks for the residents who are paying taxes like they live in ORLAND to be let down by the village officials who act like SUMMIT is mayberry

Since: Jan 10

The person that does run won't be backed by any of the people that think they run Summit now. He or she will be backed by the people that live in this town and want things to change all around Summit-Argo.

Well i hope your right but you must not know the families im talking about who have been running this town for the past 40-50-years nothing is going to change because no one has the money they do.If the residents actually knew the amount of money and property this scumbag has stolen from this village over the years it would make you sick. Joe the mayor is his puppet

first all i can say the latin kings are just pussy ass boys that are letting all these other gangs come and run the town. I am just so sick of this all, all these gang bangers need to grow up and look at the future. they are going to wind up in jail as someones bitch for their rest of their life with on one of thier buddies who are in the gang visting them. Of wind up dead. i just dont really get the whole thing.

thats actually why there has been alot of shooting because theres gangs that come around that dont belong in the neighborhood and they get shot at then they come back around n start shooting at the kings

Really???? hmmmm thats weird. i thought that was why the kings had to grow some balls; the saints were attempting to take over their 'hood.' but what ever, what do i know? actually, come to think of it, i know a lot about this particular situation. i guess it's just the kings were so ashamed to admit that the saints gave them a run for their money. i don't blame them. if it was me, i would never admit that i was in my own 'hood' and had to walk and ride around with protection because they were so scared that the saints were around looking for them.
