I am so sorry to hear of these children enduring such a horrific experience. Part of me is so grateful I moved my daughters out of that community last summer (as we also lived within streets of the crime), and most of me is saddened that ANY child and parent be put through something so devestating. I pray that you will catch the SOB with or without the police and pray even harder that no more of your children will suffer the experience, and that the victims will find the strength to become SURVIVORS rather than continue to be victims. I too have been raped as a young adult, my daughter molested as a young child...we understand and have overcome. Good luck Steger, you're in my prayers.

Ok mr/mrs.ms wow really if they police are doing such a great job why did it take so long to get the word out? Then it was only word of mouth. Then it was just regular people whom took there own time and money to make copies of the flyer that the police told channel 9 they had handed out. They police did not hand out door to door as they said on the news.

I live 1/2 a blk from where this happend I got the flyer from a neighboor. I asked all my other neighboors and even my back yard neighboors on John nobody knew nobody got a flyer.

So you get your facts straight. Plus I have talked to the news (abc 7 & Fox 32) and they said they would like to report on it but they cant get the police to respond to there calls. I just talked to them agian this morning. So you get your facts straight.

I have talked to everyone I know I carry this flyer with me, I have given it to delievery people because they travel the area.

So kiss my ass if you think we as citizens are not doing anything and not looking.

I think spending my own money making copies and spending my time passing out flyers (walking 7 or 8 blocks)that the cops should've been doing is helping out. The police are not even confirming the attempts. All of us parents are watching for suspicious people. I know a bunch of moms that are trying to find this guy. I never said the police were not looking for this guy, but for the chief of police to lie and say they passed out flyers is wrong. I think they could be doing a lot more. There is no police presence while kids are walking to and from school. Doesn't it make sense to have police patrol when kids are everywhere. There are kids walking by themselves as young as kindergarten. I do not think the parents should allow them to walk by themselves either, but police around during that time, I dont believe is asking too much. I see no reason to get mean to other people on here that are all just trying to keep all the neighorhood's kids safe. As I have said before, there are a lot of rumors out there, but when cops don't tell us anything that is what is going to happen.

At least half the people I gave flyers to yesterday were not aware of what happened eventhough it was on the news. That is how well the police are getting the information out.

Contrary to popular belief, the police can actually be busy working to protect us when the kids are on their way to and from school. They do actually answer calls for service and protection 24/7. Oh and just because you don't see a patrol car on your street, doesn't mean the police aren't in the neighborhood working to catch this villain. By the way, if the police didn't get the sketch of the offender to the media then who did? Those sketches don't exactly happen overnight either. Everyone should just let them do their jobs, while being vigilant for their own protection, for the kids and yes as in the old days for your neighbors too, instead of pointing fingers.

well steger poppa i contanct abc 7 news and fox 32. Another resident cantact channel nine wgn. As soon as I hurd i called the dept. and got a flyer that I had to pick up from them. Even thou i live 1/2 blk from where it happend. Yes the sketch takes time, but they could have gotten the word out before that. And yes i do see more patrol cars in my neighboorhood, but if people dont know why they cant be on the look out. ITS BEEN US CONCEREND CITIZENS OF STEGER GETTING THE WORD OUT, NOT THE POLICE. PUTTING UP FLYERS AT A FEW BUSINESS IN PLACES PEOPLE DONT LOOK ON WHITE NO-STAND OUT PAPER IS NOT GETTING THE WORD OUT.

Some of us moms are going door to door and making the effort. Not just beefing up patrols, and counting on a small town to do.

I did read about it in the steger newspaper, but it was like 2 weeks into it already. It also made a brief statement in the news/ I was told it just one occasion on john street, is that true? what about Union??? Its a damn shame we have to watch ours kids sleep at night.

Just cause you don't see them does mean they are not there. I was up at the school for 30 minutes and not once seen a cop roll by. I seen many kids walking all by themselves. You think it is ok that our police chief lied to the wgn news and said they passed out flyers when they didn't? I know people who live on the same street it happened and did not get a sketch of him. Yeah it most definitely wasn't the cops that contacted the news. I am the one that called wgn after several residents of Steger contacted other news channels that would not report it. Wgn is who contacted the major newspapers. I know because the newsperson from wgn called me back after talking to the Steger and South Heights police dept, and the Tribune. Steger paretns are the ones that have been getting the word out!!!! Unfortunately there are rumors that get tossed in, but that is too be expected when so many people want to know what is going on. And they are not doing it to be nosy. They are doing to protect their children. Hopefully the schools will be sending home the alert with the sketch to all parents today and that also was not the police dept, but a parent who contacted the principal. Like I said before I am not saying the cops are not looking for this guy. I personally know quite a few that can't wait to catch him and are going out of their way to get him. However with all stated above, I think they can do more to get the word out and patrolling by the schoools more while kids are present.
