What you expect, all the criminals of the "North Shore" live in Evanston. If you notice, Evanston police are still stuck in the 1900's when it comes to policing. They have all the problems of Chicago, but the community pretends there is no crime here so condo sales will continue. This town is one of the best located, but probably going down the tubes quicker than any other, just look at the crime rate and you can never go to a New Trier v. Evanston High School basketball game without a MAJOR gang bangin fight breaking out. Just about a week ago i had to run with my two young boys as all these weed reaking gang bangers started fighting and one boy pulled out a knife...But the "community" does not allow metal detectors to check these kids...only a matter of time before one of our own kids is shot to death at one of these "high school basketball games." I feel sorry for the Evanston police, they just dont have the resources to do their job right!!.

In the article, the reporter wrote that the communications director for District 65 schools could not explain how Rengay Frazier was hired as a school custodian at Evanston's Haven Middle School.
Could it be the old inside track? An August 15, 2004 article from the other major Chicago newspaper quotes Mr. Frazier on his child attending Haven Middle School:
"My son had to think a lot more," said Rengay Frazier, whose son goes to Haven Middle School in Evanston. "He had to figure out things for himself." ...
Could it be that this drug-toting, thieving janitor got his job through some insider dealing at the school or the District? It's likely that he knows someone at District 65 headquarters so please keep digging on this connection.
How many things have disappeared from Haven Middle School? As I recall, Haven School was burglarized in the recent past. Any connection to its sticky-fingered janitor and his cohorts?

[[Rengay Frazier, 36, of the 1900 block of Emerson Street is charged with unlawful possession of a controlled substance with intent to deliver, unlawful use of a weapon by a felon and felony and misdemeanor possession of marijuana. His brother, Andre Frazier, 43, of the 2100 block of Darrow Avenue, is charged with residential burglary. Allan Boyland, 42, also of the Emerson Street address, is charged with unlawful use of a weapon by a felon and misdemeanor possession of marijuana.]]

So let me get this straight... Rengay Frazier lives at the address where the drugs and stolen property were discovered, but he was in the wrong place at the wrong time. Works for me. I know it's early, but I nominate him for 2008's Father of the Year.

And just think, the enlightened liberal Democrats who control Evanston are about to make it a "Sanctuary City" for illegal aliens.

That is certainly going to help matters, don't you think?

I can hear the defense now, like an old Firesign Theatre sketch, "Your Honor, my client had merely FOUND all the drugs and merchandise, and was in the process of delivering it to the Police Department."

Correct me if I'm wrong about the artist. I'm a child of the 60's, and the memory ain't what it used to be.

that don,t mean he was the one robbing these homes. theres more to the story than we know. but this day in age they make it so hard for people to servive that sometimes you do things you dont want to do to take care of your family you dont know him so who are any of us to gudge! it's just to bad that the people that were getting robbed were not the politions cause they have been robbing us for years.
Just because you do something bad don,t make you a bad father. just means you made wrong dission.

I'm not going to judge Mr. Frazier. But one thing I can say. If there's something that ain't right, something that can jeopardize my freedom because of my past. I get as far away as possible.

As an ex-offender I am fully aware of the stigma within society. No matter how sincere you are, trying to run the straight and narrow, people will judge you, not by what you're doing with your life now, but by some mistake you made years ago. Life in the can is no picnic, but a life sentence with an "X" on your back is even worse.
That's why I have steered clear of anything, or anyone that even distantly resembles illegal, since my release nearly 30 years ago.
Even if Mr Frazier was not directly involved in the procurement of the drugs or merchandise, he should have known well enough, as one who has been there, to not allow his home to be used as a thieves' cache. That failing, he should have gotten as far away as possible.

I would like to start by saying that this was a total surprise to me and I still don't believe all that has been trumped up against Rengay. I am not familiar with the other two gentlemen named in this case but I find it extremely hard to believe. Rengay is a great father and very involved in the encouragement of African-American males in Evanston, which is something I truly believe is needed. I have been witness to the guidance he has tried to give to young teens as well as younger kids. Some of the comments that have been made really disturb me and just goes to prove that the guilty until proven innocent mentality is still alive and running strong. I know that it is hard to not judge others based on what you hear, but if you are going to judge try to do so based on what you know as fact. Donít take what you hear on TV as scripture ... because we all know that the news and media don't lie and fabricate for a better story, right? If you know the real story behind the media's version having and stating your opinion is great and probably appreciated as enlightenment for others, BUT if you don't know the real story, you can of course formulate an opinion from your assumptions, but maybe you should keep it to yourself... because after all how informed will you sound? As I stated before Rengay is a great father, this I know; his kids are not in the street running a muck like a lot of knuckle heads in Evanston. They have goals and are focused. Rengay is also a very nice and kind-hearted person, this I also know from the concern and guidance he tries to show kids that no one else seems to care about. People make comments and judge these kids instead of rolling up their sleeves to offer a helping hand or a solution. It is unfortunate that a person like him was on the "TO-DO" list for the police and all I can say is that he and his family are in my PRAYERS, not my JUDGEMENTS. Be encouraged and stay blessed.
