3 murders and 2 unsolved murders is a safe neighborhood according to Serpigo. It just shows you how disconnected he is with the average Melrose Parker.

And if you want to live in a minority free world you better go back to 1939 Germany. You are so out of touch.

Questions for S dog (AKA Shit dog) and Sam.
Who do we blame for the village teetering on the brink of bankruptcy....80 million in debt....a pension that is only 32% funded...worst in the area.
A bloated village payroll of 16 million....more than towns twice our size! corruption scandal after corruption scandal....raising mand creating higher municipal taxes?
Hey shit dog....let's blame minorities! Maybe the ones who work for serpico.....the Italians.

I know once Martinez gets elected, appoints a new chief, gets rid of a bunch of cops and other positions from the over inflated police dept.. almost all the criminals will just disappear. they will leave because they are terrified of a new chief and less cops. The presence of Martinez will send all the bad people running. I say 1 year after he's elected, we will have virtually no crime! It will also rain sniffles and there will be unicorn drawn pearl carriages transporting leprechauns down Broadway. Maybe this town does need a change, I just don't believe its Martinez... Maybe next time someone better will step up.

hey fear monger...maybe Martinez will put to better use the cops that are there. Do they really need a commander in village hall who has not done any police work for 10 years? Do they really need an $80,000 a year patrolman as an animal control....Do they really need a cop making 80,000 as a "hispanic liason" officer in village hall or a traffic sgt?
Looks like you are probably a village employee spreading fear.
Maybe its about reallocating resources intelligently and wisely, promoting based on merit not favortism, hiring based on qualifications not on who your father, uncle, godfather ect is....something the current administration is incapable of doing.

Melrose Park is part of the Maywood Ghetto. The Maywood Ghetto is bordered by the following streets; on the north side, North Avenue. On the east side, 1st avenue. On the South side; Roosevelt Road. And on the west side; the Tri-State Tollway (I-294) from North Avenue south to St. Charles Road, Mannheim Road from St Charles Road to Roosevelt Road, and St Charles Road from the Tri State Tollway to Mannheim Road.

Agreed both Serpico and Martinez suck. Both Italians and Mexicans should be embarrassed by these idiots.

How about the incompetent chief he appointed. Wait, The first corrupt chief then the second incompetent chief. Let's blame the mayor for not responding to any of the problems and scandals coming from his police department. Let's blame the mayor for letting the residents live in fear and not stepping out of his cocoon and addressing the public after two high profiles murders and 3 total in 8 months. Let's blame the mayor for not addressing the chief when murders, burglaries, sexual assaults, arson, and robberies are all on the rise in melrose park. Check the FBI crime stats and tell fat ronnie to get his head out of the sand because he is too busy stuffing his pockets with our tax dollars.
Agreed 100%.

Straight from Wikipedia....

"Melrose Park has been the target of many scandals involving corruption of its public officials. Former police chief Vito Scavo[citation needed] was indicted on federal racketeering charges after a lengthy investigation by the Federal Bureau of Investigation"

Aside from his drinking and gambling....this is the reputation Serpico has built for Melrose Park....corruption!

Martinez is not the answer...but can't we find someone honest and hardworking to restore Melrose Park to a city of credibilty?

Serpico will probably be re-elected and MP will continue to spiral into the gutter.Because noone wants to be a part of this sinking ship of thieves.

My fellow Italians ...are we proud of this?
Lets find a decent hardworking Italian to run against Serpico a.k.a. the embarrassment of MP.
Those of us in the community know all the dirt on Serpico and the useless police department.Its time for a change.
I actually appeal to the mob bosses to make a change. As an Italian I'm tired of being embarrassed.Tired of the stereotypes. Tired of being robbed.Tired of being bullied.
You had me until you wanted to appeal to the mob. Please shed your Hollywood perception of the mob. he mob is the reason guys like Taddeo, Serpico, Scavo, Castellon, and company are hear and the town is such an embarrassment. And now you want to "appeal" to them. That's like asking the guy who pushed you overboard to throw you a life jacket. You are lost and afraid of any real reform needed in this town.

p.s. Those guys who you recommend we solicit their help are the same guys who would smile, shake your hand with one hand and stick the knife in your back with the other for a dollar.
What you said about the p.d. is dead on though and I can understand your frustration.

Yep. Its true that cops are demoted and fired all the time. Its not the easiest thing to do ...but it happens all the time.

What I don't understand with all these accusations about the Martinez trustees is....why on earth are the Serpico people talking about crimes and drugs from years ago?

Serpicos family is jailbirds and the police that he is ultimately in charge of are also jailbirds. It is just sooo dumb for Serpico people to be talking about criminal behavior!

The Martinez group is dumb and lacks leadership experience....it seems to me this should be talked about by the Serpico fans. But for a Serpico supporter to talk about criminality is just plain dumb.

The real point to all of this is that both candidates and their crews are losers and the people of MP deserve better.
