The endemic crime of south chicago infecting the north suburbs. No where is safe now.... The liberal political policies of encouraging illegal immigration/ moving section 8 housing into the suburbs/ and " political correctness". Is destroying schools/neighborhoods/ and our economy.

With the Heroin epidemic going on, it's only going to get worse, as the Heroin addicts don't care where they go to do robbery, they don't have a CLEAR head; so people need to have the alarm ON, lights ON and a license to carry a firearm... If a burglar were to break in when you're home, homeowners MUST be ready to protect themselves.
