PARK RIDGE IL.

#1 May 21, 2013
With the recent shootings at Old Orchard I've been reading on other sites how Skokie seems to be having various crime problems these days and as often the case a lot of it seems to be by minority groups.

I live in Park Ridge and have most of my life and other than going to a neurologist there I wouldn't know much about Skokie but I've heard that for decades it has been somewhat a diverse place though maybe not as Evanston and perhaps not as prone to the same problems.

In that's been the case then why is this changing?

Trash is trash, and they've been encroaching on Skokie; I've heard numerous people say Section 8 is to blame.
