I knew it would happen. A few blacks have moved in on Elizabeth avenue.There goes the neighborhood! The east side used to be OK. Stupid kids running around half dressed throwing food trash al around the area. The adults hanging out like porch monkeys. Trash in the yards. Now 2 cars in the next alley were broken into last week. First crime in ages around my block. I might have to get a big dog todeter these thugs

A black doctor delivered my kids during 2 difficult pregnancies for my wife.
You talk so provincial like you've been nowhere in your life ... Don't tell me about your vacations that doesn't count.
What the he'll is mentally wrong with you.
Other races don't decide to do the crimes??
Come on. Don't be so ignorant.
Just shows you've wasted your life, to afraid to get an education and experience the rest of this country and it's multi culture.
I know you're better.
I personally know people diagnosed mentally retarded and mentally I'll who act more humane than you.
Come on. You're better than that...

Lenny, You are way off. I served 22 years in the Navy. I have traveled the world and seen more than most. Statistics show blacks are more likely than other races to perform crime. Blacks are the highest percentage in prisons and jail. Being humane or not has nothing to to with my observations.

It was actually three cars & one house on Edina and this is nothing new and has been going on for long before this family moved in! I do recall there was another black family that lived on Elizabeth about 5 years ago and they were threatened at gun point by an older white man in their driveway, the older white man of which also lives in this neighborhood. Let's not forget that there will be crime no matter where you live or what races live there. Also there are plenty of people that hang out on the endless mile that are not from this neighborhood that could be the culprits of these recent events. I understand your frustrations with the break ins as they frustrate me too, however I cannot agree with the judgements passed on these neighbors simply for the color of their skin.

The trash in the yards and the monkeys on the porches and in the yards is getting worse. The east side of Zion was great for the 20 years I have been here. Now it is going to hell. The older white guy guy a few years back took a gun with him to argue over loud music to the black people in the yelllow house a few blocks from me. That black couple moved on. The part getting bad is in the area of 24th st. and Elizabeth.

You mean a few doors from you.
Retired cops can carry guns. That one happend to be a retired Chicago homicide cop.
The black couple went to jail and the husband is till there and for a lot more than just loud music. The son is in jail in Racine County and the daughter is nowhere to be found.

It sure is coincidental that blacks have begun to move into SECTION 8 homes and apartment buildings in Winthrop Harbor, and the crime has began...if the blacks want respect, maybe they should try to be RESPECTFUL...I watched one of the black girls in the section 8 house down the street throw a large McDonalds bag, full of the garbage, onto Sheridan Road while her Mother was driving...Winthrop Harbor does not want to look like Gary, Indiana...the po-po in the Harbor will come down hard on you trouble making fools, so, do yourself a favor, STAY OUT OF TROUBLE...the residents watch and WILL call police for any and all unwanted behavior..Have a nice day.

Um yeah "carry" not threaten! There's a difference and over loud music is a tad excessive! Especially considering it was the middle of the day! He must really hate his neighbors that have parties with bands! We have non retired police that should be dealling with these problems not someone like that!
