Is it true that 3 kids broke into Mt. Greenwood school. When approached by the principal they hit her a few times.

Did anyone else hear this

Hey Mixer....

Do me a favor and check out this video of what happens in Englewood and remind me again why we want this in 60655? Have you lost your mind?

BTW....regarding the video...

It was shot on 30 may 09. Two days before PO Alex Valadez was murdered by one of these pieces of shit. The idiots posted it themselves....hopefully the police can use it to arrest them!

Once again.....it's not about color it's about ECONOMICS, shall I spell it again..ECONOMICS. I do not and would not live next to any of the people in the video. I would live next to anyone of any race or nationality that is of the same ECONOMIC level as me and mine. That video has absolutely NOTHING to do with what I say here. Of course we should all watch out for and protect ourselves from CRIMINALS of any kind, color, race and nationality. Just don't be one sided about it.

The guy that made the threats on the video WAS arrested this week...and he threatened to kill the police in person as well.

I'm done with Mixer. I will not be responding to his/her race baiting comments that are made strictly to start trouble. Bye Bye now

Dear Mixer, I have to disagree with you in a previous post were you stated that a "middle class black would not bring a lower class black to a BBQ just like a middle class white would not bring a lower class white to a BBQ. Are you on the same planet? Did you ever talk to a Black person one on one? If so, you could close your eyes and swear you are talking to another white, but when another Black shows up then the Ghetto/Jive language starts and you are very lucky if you can understand it. WHOW! Now I have alot of Irish friends and when I talk to them, there is no accent, just normal talk, but a few Guinness or 12, all of a sudden, I swear to God they just got off the boat from Ireland, a braugh that a true-blooded Irishmen would not understand. Now, if you say that a middle-class person from either race would not bring their lower class friends to a party, dear sir or madam, you apparently have no friends because if you did, rich or poor, they would be invited. And one becomes the other in every situation because that is the comfort zone. Hey Mixer, go mix in Jackson or Washington Park tonight, even bring your fishing gear, everyone respects a sportsman, right? I promise you, before your dead body reaches the bottom of the lake or lagoon, your money will be spent and your credit cards limited out. Now that is a real mixer!!!!!

In and around....

I respect you and I love your blog, but to stop people's opinions and concerns about what is happening in 60655?

Allowing people to voice their thoughts could affect others thoughts and opinions and maybe they might wake up and learn a little something.

I haven't commented on the subject myself, but have read others and find the different opinions quite interesting.

Your blog....your call!

inandaround60655 said...

You think so... it's hard to decide. Let the opinions be said or shut them down. I guess I haven't received death threats via email yet ...so I guess I will let them go through.

I will not post anything overly outrageous though. Consider yourselves warned.

Anonymous said...

I don't admire your position, but yeah I think the opinions so far have been ok. You've monitored the postings quite well in my opinion!

Village Voice said...

I hate to say it ... and alot of you will not agree ... Mixer I do not know if you are black or white .. But you make sense ... I am sure you live in 60655 because you choose to ... Like I choose to ... like a lot of people choose to ... you are entitled to your opinion and I respect that ... You can all take shots at mixer because it is easy to do so ... you can complain about the GD's on Whipple not because you are angry, but because you are afraid ... take charge of your neighborhood and do not let the thugs take over ... call the police ... sign complaints ... step up ... control what you can ... but if you don't, it will be because you ARE afraid.

Here's some feedback I got after I forwarded the e-mail about the lack of Police protection in the 19th Ward.

The responder is the wife of a Police Officer

Subject: Re: Everyone in 60655 & 60643

Not only are they doing that, but every day when Morgan Park High School gets out, they have not 1, but 4 or 5 cars assigned to the corner. A lot of the burglaries that are going on here are happening around that time. Until something is done with the politics in this district, nothing will change.

People don't want to hear it or believe it, but the numbers game in 22 is ridiculous. We're the "Village in the city that has no crime." They just close a blind eye to it.

The shit next door to me have broken into 2 houses that we know for certain, and there have been a few others that have mentioned their names, but nothing is done.

The Police Department is controlled by the 19th Ward, but everyone around here thinks the 19th Ward is wonderful.

Sooner or later, the piper has to be paid, so the people who keep putting them in office need to wake up.

the garage at 10752 S. Kedzie is an accident waiting to happen. My son was asked by a group of older white men if he wanted to "buy" some weed, pott. He just rode away and came home. I drove by to get the exact address to call the useless police and saw five grown men drinking and smoking cigarettes in the Perfect Pitch parking lot. This was at nine at night.

I called the 022nd District Police station: what a mistake. The officer stated that I should not risk my child's safety by attempting to make a POLICE Report.

Narcotics is as dangerous as a sexual convict predator, or a house on fire. The authorities need to be notified for the good of this community.

The officer said that my son might have over reacted. We chose to live here because I was raised here and I am happy in this great neighborhood. The officer couldnt take my name for a narcotic detective?????

Now we cannot call the local station house?? it was not an emergency, but now the police dont care. My neighbor said I should have called 911 on my cell and reported a FIRE. At least one city dept. would have responded...
The dope dealer would then flee...

Anonymous said...

Off Topic, but important!
As the temperature increases, so does crime. Unfortunately, we will be responsible for protecting our homes alone since OUR beat cars are being assigned to the Racine courts and Church street for recent shootings. Most nights 2211 can be found on the east end of the district, with specific instructions to not go west of Church street. Now they have tact cars sitting on these problem areas too....therefore taking away from patrolling and protecting our area. May I suggest contacting the alderman's office should you need police service, since our cars will be tied up on assigned posts over east.

why dont the police and fire gave back some money ????they willnot ask them to do that because city hall is to scared..what the city worker should do is go on strike shutdown this city..damand the the city use our money that daley got for the skyway and meter and use it to stop this crap...we should call the mayor office tell him fix this problem give the worker of chicago there due..richie is not the old man son that for sure ..remember ginger will have her garbage pickup and her street clean but not the rest of us...city hall keep forgeting that they work for us we dont work for them

Nippsy Russell said...

Don't call the the police station. They can't assign a car to a job without notifying 911 anyway. Just call 911. Even if it's not an emergency. I've tried calling 311 to report a minor disturbance and they even tell me to hang up and call 911. I've seen the the scum that hangs on that corner too, it should be reported.

I called the 22nd district to report vandalism (broken window), and the officer I spoke to said to call 911! The 911 dispatcher acted like I was nuts!

Listen: Call police for everything! I'm a police officer. Not in 022, but in the ghetto. IF you call, a car HAS to be sent. Don't bother with 311. Call 911. If someone says a green martian and space ship landed in their backyard, we HAVE to respond. If they don't, call again. It's getting ridiculous here in 60655. Call, call, and call some more. The squeaky wheel gets the grease!

OK, so whats your point? People speak differently when they are around people they are familiar with, like Italians, Blacks, Irish, Mexicans so what, that's the way they talk it's not good or bad just different.

"Now, if you say that a middle-class person from either race would not bring their lower class friends to a party, dear sir or madam, you apparently have no friends because if you did, rich or poor, they would be invited. "

OK, so sometimes middle class whites hang with lower class and same with black people. Either way they are still not going to let anything get out of hand. If they are at least "middle class" then they are not going to want to jeopordize their relationship with their neighbors. What exactly is the problem? Loud music you don't like, the smell of foods you don't like, that's called tolerance for anyone that is different it's something you have to do everyday. It doesn't make a person bad.

"Hey Mixer, go mix in Jackson or Washington Park tonight, even bring your fishing gear, everyone respects a sportsman, right? I promise you, before your dead body reaches the bottom of the lake or lagoon, your money will be spent and your credit cards limited out. Now that is a real mixer!!!!!"

Once again, you can't make a point without wishing me and mine bodily harm, and death no less! Nice! Who is the gangster here? I hang out with all different types of people and because of that I have learned that decent people of all races and nationalities all want the same thing a nice place to live, a safe place and education for their kids, and just to work, pay their bills and try and get ahead. If you don't know any DECENT people of different races or nationalities then YOU need to get out and meet some people. They are out there and they are not that hard to find. They are all around you. Don't go to Englewood or Washington Park or Jackson Park just hang out right where you are in 60655 or 60643. There are plenty of decent black people all around just trying to live their lives just like you.

"I'm done with Mixer. I will not be responding to his/her race baiting comments that are made strictly to start trouble. Bye Bye now"

I don't race bait anyone. I have never come on this blog and said anything inflammatory to anyone. I have only responded, without threats and wishes of bodily harm to anyone I disagree with and clearly spelled out my position. That's all there is to it. It's not a conspiracy, it's not a plan, it's just my thoughts. I love this neighborhood and it just makes me SICK that some people in it have the opinions they have in this modern day and age. My GOD do any of you people have religion? Is this what you are taught? Is this what your God tells you? To hate ALL black people, to lump them all in one group of ignorant, cheating, lying, stealing, murdering gangbangers. Pleeeeze! Get a life? Get a hobby? No one denies there is crime and problems but it is not ALL OF THEM! If you can't stand the heat then YES, GET OUT OF THE KITCHEN! Seeee ya!

MIXER said...

Village Voice, thanks. It makes me feel good to know that there are others in 60655 that have similiar feelings. I'm just doing and saying my thing. It's what I feel and I can sleep at night knowing I look at ALL people the same. I don't let my guard down just because someone is white, brown or black. When you let your guard down is when you get bit in the ass. But I also hold the door and say good morning to ALL people the same white, brown or black. Some of the people on this blog would be surprised at the reaction they would get if they held the door or said hello to someone they usually wouldn't. More often than not they would get a smile and thank you back. Amazing how it works.

MIXER said...

To Anonymous from tha last open post that is closed:

"It's funny how you only showed bits and pieces of the original comment, the ones that sounded racist."

FYI, I took the first line of each of YOUR paragraphs exactly as YOU wrote it, because the blog sight would not allow the full paragraph. Too many words...It wasn't a plan on my part. I am not that conniving.

Other than that I can't say the rest of your comments were all that distasteful. I agree, I don't now and don't plan to live next to ANY low lifes black, brown or white. Not interested. But I do enjoy knowing and respect all of my neighbors be they white, brown or black.

Ha Ha Ha HA....garbage cans you can get pretty fast...tree trimming...I have been waiting three years for that to be done. We even had a meeting with Rugai and her side kick because of permit parking and told them that tree trimming was necessary on our block cause the people can't read the signs from overgrowth of trees and the signsare falling down because the kids from Burboun Street punch and kick them when their cars get towed. We are going on 3 weeks and nothing has been done.

For tree trimming just use the online 311 system. That's what Rugai uses anyway when you ask for service.

And you can just put in a request with her website too.

Call 311. I got my tree in the parkway trimmed 4 days after I called. Looks beautiful. Lady at 311 was pleasant and it was taken care of quickly. Do I call 311 for gargabe cans too? I have mangled ones. Some drunk hit them over the winter and dragged them down the block and ruined them.

Once again we were left vulnerable twice this past week as 2211 was held done on curfew enforcement. From what I saw they were never west of Ashland all night. At one point took home a curfew to 5600 S. Kimbark. Absolutely ridiculous this is done at the Watch Commanders discretion, he decides what car will be held done on these missions and he chose 2211 to be on the east end for 2 nights.

If we have 311 do we really need an alderman? Think about it!

Our great Catholic School kids? NOOOOOOOOOO. BTW, what will the police do? They will be on scene about 20 mins after you call. Kids long gone, but, you will "point out" where they live right? Go talk to the parents yourself, in a respectful manner considering the pee issue at hand. Much more efficient and productive.

Concerning the cops in 2211. How do you know this are you a cop? If you are, good, keep the reports coming. This is terrible, everyone please attend the caps meeting Thursday and complain about whatever issue is concerning you. If you see something call 911 and sprinkle a little doubt in the phone call to get them out there.

I say put the urinating kids on youtube ( no private parts showing though). I have gone to parents of kids about bullying and other matters.These were the replies I have gotten:

My kid was there but did not do anything

Not my kid

Kids will be kids

Door slammed in my face, swore at by parents and rolled eyes.


Parents, we don't need to come to your doors, you need to do your job of parenting. You are supposed to teach them right from wrong. I see the mobs of kids going from corner to corner after being told to leave the corner properties. They swear, stick up the middle finger, moon or yell " what are you gonna do about it?" and harass cars. I have seen them push other kids riding by off their bikes. Luckily I have not seen any urinating, yet.

Let's remember sidewalks are public property, as well as the grass from the sidewalk to the street. I do think most are good kids, it only takes a few "bad apples" to ruin it for the bunch.

"That is what kids do"??? That is just crazy! I witnessed a boy ready to beat on his girlfriend the other night, is that what kids do?? They push kids off of their bikes, is that what kids do?? Your precious angel who is in 7th grade was drunk and had her friends carrying her down the alley, oh but that is what kids do, so it's okay!!! That is why some of these kids are so bad. They have no respect for adults! I never would have talked to adults like some of these kids do today!

No offense, but you have to admit that the majority of the black race has ruined it for the entire race. We have seen our neighborhoods being overtaken for way too long now and you wonder why we are bitter toward blacks? Look at what those neighborhoods have turned into! I realize there are decent black people that want out of those neighborhoods too because of crime, gangs, etc. But it starts with 1 or 2 middle class blacks, it frightens us off and next thing you know it's 1/2 the neighborhood and 5 years later it's a dump like the rest of them. We don't want that to happen here and we're angry because people and the mayor are letting it happen. We would all love peace and for everyone to get along, but it will NEVER happen and for that reason, we have to protect what we have. 60655 is the only community on the SS of the city that hasn't gone to shit and we're not about to sit here and watch it happen...I'm sorry!

I stand by what I wrote - I don't know what part of MG you live in, but I have not witnessed any of what you mentioned.

That being said - my oldest is in

While my kids are not perfect, I hope to God someone would tell me if they saw them behaving in some horrific way.

This is a very interesting and ALARMING blog. I will continue to read it and comment if I see fit. I was raised in MTG ,moved out as an early adult, and moved back in to raise my family. I am not a city worker NOR will i run when it hits the fan. Where are we going to go? The burbs I can afford have their own "problems". We have to take matters in our own hands, keep an eye open,report problems,and raise our kids right and wise. Side question, unrelated to most posts: Is there or has there been a RAT problem in MTG??? I just saw my first one in the hood and after closer investigatig I've noticed burrows arond the yard. Does 311 actually do anything, is it the weather?

Anonymous, I kindly disagree. Don't run off just because a couple of black or hispanic families move in. If they are good people than count yourself fortunate because some homes in 60655 are getting pretty darn cheap and if you can get decent people in a good sized home for less than $175k than count yourself lucky. What we should be doing is making sure the retailers stay and the main streets are nice and work together to bring in more attractive businesses and support the ones we have. Keep working on getting more police presence and hold everyone to the same standard and then it shouldn't matter what color anybody is. The neighborhood will stay solid. Mt. Greenwood is not going to shit just like Beverly and Morgan Park didn't.

Anonymous said...

Morgan Park has gone to shit. Parts of Beverly are holding on. The point you are missing is that people will run if a few black or hispanic families move in because we do not share your kumbaya view of the world. You have been told many times, we are here because of the makeup of the neighborhood, otherwise we would have moved to Morgan Park or stayed in Ashburn. You hate the opinions of many posters yet you insist on trying to cram your viewpoints down our throats as if you are superior and your thoughts are the only right ones. AS you can tell, many here disagree with you.

Hey Mixer,

How about you keep your politically correct point of view to your self. If you are so fond of the beast there is plenty of vacant property for sale in Englewood. You could capitilize on city incentive's for living in a danger zone, you would have cheap taxes great parks awsome city service's such as a high police presence and best of all you could send your kids to the best schools the city has to offer, after all, all of the kids from this area become honor students. You would definatley become a grand parent from your 14 y/o daughter and your grand children would have creative names such as Ja-Janae or Aiiakkeee or Sh-A or maybe even a La-Tyrone. You could possibly have a extra side lot or two after your neighbor's house burn's down and move's to the 10800 block of whipple .

For me, I will stick to my politically incorrect world and live around my fellow caucasion american friends because I dont want no F-IN SAVAGE living near me or my family. Because I am not blinded by color, I see that everything they touch they f-up. After all if they can's screw it, eat it or steal it, they surely will break it. Open your fricken eyes and see the real world!

Thank you to the anonymous poster (6/16/ 9:21 a.m.) that agrees with me!

Mixer....

Don't put words in my mouth...I didn't mention hispanics and I'm not worried at all about a few hispanic families in the neighborhood. They are hard working people that bust their ass for less than most. Most of them stay in their own neighborhoods and don't try to take over ours. For the few that don't, it's mainly because of mixed families (caucasian/mexican). I'm not racist, just prejudice because of what the black race takes advantage of. They ruin what most systems are about for the people in need. Unemployment, social security, welfare, etc. Funny how you drive past section 8 and see all the cadillacs and people with their brand new gym shoes, but can't pay a mortgage or taxes? 99%of the people in line at any of these facilities are black....it's a fact.

Anonymous said...

Then they can stay on the city property in front of your house. Maybe one of the reasons they don't hang infront of your home is because their behavior is aweful! Why should I have to listen to bad language 20 feet from my window. My kids are grown. The sidewalk and parkway may be public property but remember what your kids are doing is in public sight and yes, it can become a police matter. Your kids are a reflection of you and you are not looking so good.

Mr. PI,
If people want to live near people like themselves then I do not have an issue with that. What I disagree with is when idiots like yourself, Mr. Politically Incorrect, lump all black people into one group. I don't need to go to Englewood to live near or socialize with decent middle class black people. You obviously don't know any good black people or you would not talk the way you do. You need to get out, broaden your horizons a little more. Your comments are not original or amusing, they are dated, boring and transparent. Don't be such an ass. It's not pretty, positive or life fulfilling in any way.

Morgan Park has gone to shit. Parts of Beverly are holding on. The point you are missing is that people will run if a few black or hispanic families move in because we do not share your kumbaya view of the world. You have been told many times, we are here because of the makeup of the neighborhood, otherwise we would have moved to Morgan Park or stayed in Ashburn. You hate the opinions of many posters yet you insist on trying to cram your viewpoints down our throats as if you are superior and your thoughts are the only right ones. AS you can tell, many here disagree with you."

Morgan Park is not shit! Have you ever been around Crescent Park? The Academy? The east edges may have some issues but that is not driving any one out. "Parts of Beverly are holding on?" That's an understatement if I ever heard one! Beverly is thriving! You still can't get a home in Beverly for less than $250k, yeah that really sucks for the home owners! If you want to live near people like yourself that is fine, than live! I am not saying you make the comments,(I can't tell because everyone is just anonymous), but the people I disagree with are the one's that trash ALL black people. I am not trying to be superior(your word choice), by saying, that is just plain wrong. It has nothing to do with superiority just simple common sense. I think people who make blatantly, racist, ignorant comments need to be called to the carpet by someone. Maybe then they will realize that everyone does not agree with them. Gosh, I wish I could say that I hang out with people that spend their time making up assinine names for black children or can describe in gruesome detail the results of socilaizing with black people that ends up with mine or my childrens horrific death. Yeah, those are the people I really want to have a "meeting of the minds" with. That sounds like a really good time hanging out with them on a Friday night having a few beers and talking about the "N's and the Monkeys" Nice life. More like a nightmare.

To the blogger who is concerned about RATS in the area, "OH YES", there are RATS, if you have a dog and do not clean up their pooh daily you will have a rat problem. Ask any Rodent Control person and they will tell you that dog droppings are a RATS favorite meal. Come by Mt. Greenwood Park at night and you will see RATS because of some inconsiderate dog walkers who do not pick-up after their mutt, and there are alot of them. The RATS live in burrows in the fields behind the AG school and come out at night to feast in the park, you might think they are rabbits, but rabbits hop, RATS slither around. Keep your yard clean and you should not have a problem and when you come to the park for a nice walk or run and you see a dog-walker not cleaning up the mess, say something or find out where they live and make a special delivery to their front yard. If they have no concern for you or your park why should you have any concern for them! RATS do carry rabies and if bitten the shots are not pleasant...

Mixer....

What's the matter?? Cat got your tongue?? The truth hurts doesn't it??

Regarding my post yesterday (copied below)...

Don't put words in my mouth...I didn't mention hispanics and I'm not worried at all about a few hispanic families in the neighborhood. They are hard working people that bust their ass for less than most. Most of them stay in their own neighborhoods and don't try to take over ours. For the few that don't, it's mainly because of mixed families (caucasian/mexican). I'm not racist, just prejudice because of what the black race takes advantage of. They ruin what most systems are about for the people in need. Unemployment, social security, welfare, etc. Funny how you drive past section 8 and see all the cadillacs and people with their brand new gym shoes, but can't pay a mortgage or taxes? 99%of the people in line at any of these facilities are black....it's a fact.

Mixer, please... your comments are exhausting. This will never end, you are trying to take the high road but at this point you must realize you are not going to change anyone's mind writing in a blog. This is the avenue in which people like to complain, let them complain. You can preach elsewhere, it won't be effective here.

I for one understand what you are saying but please realize when it comes to someone's home, children and financial well-being people will revert to fight or flight. It appears everyone here is willing to fight and that can get ugly but we do what we do. So if possible, please stop. I don't even read your posts anymore because I'm tired of them, anyone else feel the same way?

I agree with you whole heartedly! Mixer can preach to her own people that need the preaching. They are the ones that need to be transformed from monsters into human beings!

To the "anonymous" that do not want to read me: STOP READING NOW!
Anyway, if you don't want to read then don't, like you say it's a free country to do and say what you want, live near who you want, think what you want. Well, this is me, cest la vie! Struck a nerve eh? Held the mirror up and don't like what you see, huh?

"They are the ones that need to be transformed from monsters into human beings!"
Monsters come in many forms, from the criminals and users to hateful people with no compassion or soul.

"I for one understand what you are saying but please realize when it comes to someone's home, children and financial well-being people will revert to fight or flight. It appears everyone here is willing to fight and that can get ugly but we do what we do."

Just the fact that you are saying that you understand what I am saying gives me hope! I understand what you and everyone else is saying too. I grew up here and my relatives and some of my family members may have opinions not too dis-similiar. But it is the dialog and information that will hopefully open some peoples eyes. In regard to defending ones home, finances and children, don't you realize that by trying to create your own little "white island" you are heading for financial and emotional ruin? No neighborhood can sustain and thrive by locking out the rest of the world. We need to learn how to keep our neighborhood safe and prosperous while adapting to the changes in the world. In regard to children, is that the legacy you want to pass on to these sweet innocent minds? A legacy of hatred and racism. How are they going to function in the real world when they get out there and have to socialize and compete with people of all races and nationalities? What is their answer going to be? You are setting them up for a very difficult, confused and unhappy life. The world is just going to get smaller and change even more by the time they get older and they are going to have to learn to deal with even more different people. Racism is a LOSING battle. Thanks for not reading.

I may be anonymous but at least you know who you are talking to.

I guess you just can't handle it. That's what closed minded people do, they close up ranks and ignore the rest of the world. I know of some land in Wako that you can all move to. A little singed but tillable. You can put up a fence and only let the people you want in. Watch out for kool ade day!

OMG....yes, they are miserable! However, I usually get there right before they close and that might have a lot to do with it. They need to keep the store open a tad later for people that work and don't get back in the area so early.

Anonymous you should know better, I love a challenge!

So your not concerned about the huge blocks of Hispanics that moved in from Western to Pulaski from 87th going North. Many of whom are illegal taking low paying jobs from whites who don't want them, get free education & health care are often in gangs and live below the radar. What is the difference? I am not encouraging it but why aren't many bitching about them? Is it because you like their food and margaritas?

So, mixed race is ok. Just a few Hispanics. What ratio white to black or Hispanic or Asian is acceptable? Is it ok to have black DNA in your make up but not have the "black feautures"? Could you please get out your Mt. Whitewood rule book and get back to me on that one?

From Websters II - Prejudice - A preconceived opinion, bias.
From Wikepedia - Racism is the belief that race is the primary determinant of human traits and capacities and that racial differences produce an inherent superiority of a particular race. In the case of institutional racism, certain racial groups may be denied rights or benefits, or get preferential treatment, while reverse racism favours members of a historically disadvantaged group at the expense of those of a historically advantaged group.

So prejudice is actually worse than racism. Prejudice is a preconceived bias. For example the information passed down from generation to generation that has no bearing on the real world. Racism is based on peoples beliefs about human characteristics and issues of favoritism, which is intellectually debateable.
Whites males have been at the receiving end of favoritism ever since one can recall. From patronage to politics the white male has been selected above all others for all benefits. Now that there is a type of reverse racism in favor of blacks, females and other minorities the white males are "up in arms" because someone else is getting the patronage they used to always get, which is now attempting to level the playing field which is still as level as the Rocky Mountains in favor of whites. You seem to think that black people are the only ones on welfare? Well wrong again, that is just your perception because of where you are in the US. In the Southeast there are lots of whites living in near poverty conditions and out west there are whites, hispanics and more. The government has institutionalized poor people everywhere. They are creating and maintaining the programs to provide for the poor instead of teach the poor to provide for themselves. Hate the government,(black and white alike) not the poor who don't know any better than to take advantage of what is handed to them. I am not saying it's right but your barking up the wrong tree. Did you know that if you don't have car insurance and get pulled over your ticket will be less than the cost of auto insurance for 2 months? That's messed up! What's the motivation? We should be more surprised about the number of successful, once poor, black, white and hispanic people than the number that still live in poverty and take advantage of the system that allows it.

To be honest, I kind of stopped reading this blog about a week ago. This Mixer person is driving me crazy. Take your race baiting elsewhere. Obviously this person doesn't live around here and is trying to stir up the pot on this cool little blog.

Mixer, start your own blog. Are you Mary Mitchell by the way? Sounds reminiscent of Mary Mitchell from the Sun Times.

Here’s a little tid bit for your blog that isn’t racist or political. Kids are playing wiffle ball in a backyard on 104th pl. ball goes over fence to a police officers backyard known to house two tiny dogs. The officers house is on 105th St. Kid being kid hops fence to grab ball, no dogs in sight thinks he can get in and get out fast. In a matter of seconds kid is attacked by Jack Russell Terrier, not bit once or twice, mauled multiple stitches huge chunks of flesh missing etc.. Apparently officer is in garage with dogs hears dogs going crazy grabs the little attacker and then holds bloody dog inches from kids face to scream why are you back here. This is a person that carries a gun to work mind you. I know there must be shared responsibility kid shouldn’t have been in yard, but what happens on your property is your responsibility as well. Now let’s describe the fence the kid jumped it is a 3 foot chain link fence with a gap between the chain link fence and a neighboring wood fence blocked with a piece of plywood. Any child can knock it down, kids are impulsive. So being a concerned neighbor I wonder wouldn’t the dog owner be responsible to put up a fence that protects her yard from child offenders trespassers retrieving lost balls. If I have a pool I am responsible for keeping wandering kids out by protecting my yard with a lock and a fence should owners of vicious dogs be held to the same rules? Who would think that a dog that small could do so much damage, the little boy is on crutches. There is a bite card on the dog now but how bad does the damage have to be before the owner must take some responsibility? Just curious I see both sides, I am looking for opinions. Please note I did say kid should not have been in the yard in the 1st place, but should we as neighbors be worried that a storm may blow down the plywood in place of a fence letting the tiny little dog that did so much damage out into the neighborhood? Thoughts please.

If the cop was in the garage why didn't the kid yell out to him to get the ball ??? And let me tell you something else ... Jack Russell terriers are not quiet dogs ... Next time kid ... RING THE DOOR BELL ... or go to the park and play ... And finally ... The reason you do not like the Mixer is because he he/she speaks the blunt truth ...

Anonymous said...

I had a gap between fences and put up a new one to keep kids from cutting through our yard. Now mind you, no one minds the occasional one or two kids but when 10 kids come yelling in between houses yelling and knocking on screens, I have a problem. Especially when it is late at night and my kids are sleeping. Now we have a tall plastic fence. Guess what? They take my lawn chairs, put them next to the fence and hop it. So is it now my fault that I leave my lawnchairs in my own backyard? Respect for other people and their property was not you in our homes or schools. Why would any kid go into any yard with dog for anything? I agree, the kids should have knocked on the door or find another place to play ball. I do hope the feel better but a lesson was learned. The "kids will be kids" attitude needs to change.

17JUN09, 11:06pm In response to the Jack Russell Terrier....You have got to be kidding! Shared responsibility? There is none to be shared!!!! The responsibility is all yours and your son's!!! Since when is it accepted in our society to trespass onto another's property for any reason. That dog was protecting his property and his owner! That's what dogs do. Your child was in the wrong and YOU are in the wrong for thinking your neighbor has any responsibility in this matter. And as we are talking, what difference does the dog owner's profession make in this matter. Is this yet another attack on the men and women who put on a uniform each and every day to protect the rights of citizens like you!! In my opinion, you and your son are lucky the police officer did not arrest your child for the criminal act he committed!!! Now as for the dog owner's fence, you admit the dog owner took necessary steps to ensure the dog stayed in his yard. And by your statement that the child was in the dog's yard when he was bitten confirms the fact that the dog owner's containment is working. The dog was in HIS YARD!!! If you are looking for advice, you should thank who ever you might pray to that the dog your child met was not a large breed, ie. sheppard, pitbull, or worse and extend an olive branch to your neighbor. A simple "sorry" would go along way because anyway you look at this situation, it is your child's fault for going into someone's yard uninvited and it is YOUR fault for not being a parent and preventing this in the first place!!!!!!!
P.S. I hope your child recovers from his injuries.

the reason that is called into question is from what I hear she was less then under control after it happened I expect a police officer would be able to handle any situation without losing it

to June 23, 4:445pm poster...YOU HAVE GOT TO BE KIDDING!!! Have you lost your mind. Being a police officer does not mean that your emotions are left at the door of the police academy. Even the most seasoned police officer or firefighter who looks at the worst everyday HAS emotions. And by your own admission you were not there...you HEAR this is what happened!!!! DO NOT JUDGE when you have only one side of the story!!!
