Lives in Downers Grove

Yes there are gang members that live in Downers Grove! It seems like no-one wants to believe this. They want to believe that these punks are only wannabe's. I hear this all the time. The truth is these young punks are more dangerous then the "real gangbangers". They don't live by the "codes". They don't give a damm about anything. These punks everyday are trying to recruit new gang members and when they fail to do so they threaten the "victim". They want to recruit as many as they can on any street so they can say they own that street. For some reason many young men see this gang life as "cool". It makes me sick to see how many of our children "false flag". I wonder how many really know what they are "flagging". Is there any gang awareness in Downer's? Do the police really believe this is not Chicago? No this isn't Chicago but I sure hope the police are more concerned then what I have seen. These young punks have guns. They don't just hang out in Berwyn with thier peers, they hang out here in Downers Grove. They live here, hang here, get drunk here and commit crimes here. Wake up Downers Grove and stop laughing when I say we have many gang members here.

Actually it's true!! The police don't seem to care. One Downers Grove police officer told me that, they just don't have the man power to do anything about these out of control kids. Maybe the police should spend less time with their traffic tickets and more time on the gangs!!!

I actually took some young kids to the park in DG. There was about 6 highschool kids openly smoking joints in front of us. They didn't seem to be bothered that I was an adult trying to enjoy the day with my children at the park. This was behind DG south high school. This was about three oclock in the afternoon during the school year. That's just one of my experiences of drugs and gangs in DG.

Just because people are smoking joints doesn't mean that they are active gang bangers. I went to DGS and yes there are gang members that come in from Boilingbrook and Woodridge. But they are a joke if they were to go to Chicago like the west side they would get laughed at.

Oh Please!! Your living in a dream world if you seriously believe that there are no gang bangers in Downers Grove. What about the man from Downers that just got 10 years in prison for shooting someone. Plus he beat a 13 year old half to death four years ago, with a baseball bat. That man has 8 brothers and most of them are bad news. Your funny Woodridge and Bolingbrook have gang bangers but not Downers. Okay!

They might get laughed at in Chicago but they are doing the same things here in Downers Grove as they do there.Most of them hang in Chicago/Berwyn when they aren't commiting crimes here. They might be wannabe's but they are still commiting the same crimes. Your'e right about smoking weed dosen't make u a gangbanger but somewhere down the chain the weed was probably brought to DG from a gangbanger that traveled to Chicago to bring here to sell it. Things will not get better because the police don't have any control and the gangbangers just laugh about it.

The real gang in DG are the police. They do not have the resources to fight the gangs, but try driving through DG with a disabled auto, and the police will swoop in on you like a pack of wolves.
They are there to help, they are there to collect revenue. I witnessed a family get attacked the other night, it was really shameful. Maybe they need to cut a few more police.

Um I'm pretty sure they live in prentiss creek. There have been several breakins this summer alone there. I am a well built adult male and I am afraid to walk to maxwells or Westbrook market after dark. There are always a ton of young men hanging out in that alley behind elite fitness and they followed me once almost right back to my door. Once they saw a few squad Cars in the parking lot they freaked out and backed off. Who backs off from cops unless they're doing something they shouldn't?

The police are there to help you! You are accountable for the way things are. You vote for the leaders of Downers Grove so you must shoulder the blame for any police. Don't whine here you appointed your leaders. So stop being like a child crying about a broken toy and blame your stupid self. You are part of the problem when all you do is whine like an unaccountable baby!

They really need a creche in Downers Grove. They are very popular in Denmark. We must obey the cops because they protect us. Yes he sounds very effeminate and sissy.

There was just a huge gang fight yesterday at concord park by Downers Grove south. A bunch of black kids from prentiss jumped a white kid. They knocked out the white kids front teeth and his whole jaw is broken. If I wasn't going passed the school at the time and noticed all the squad cars I probably would have never known there was a gang fight. As a parent with three children I would hope Downers Grove would put the incident in their paper. As a parent I want to know whats going on in my own neighborhood.

There aren't to many gangbangers left. Sure there's some, but there used to be alot more. In the early 90's. When rap was big groups like NWA. There were gangbanger that hung out in the downtown area. Right by the train station. People used to fear going there. Before all the yuppie condos and business went up. Prentise Creek was much worst then it is today. I lived here for years.

Your link is about Chicago not Downers Grove. Why don't you show me the crime rate in Downers Grove? I'll give you a hint. Its not high. My education was being involved. Whats yours? Did any of your friends go to jail for murder? Tell me where the gangs in Downers Grove are threatening everyone?
