How does a guy from 127th and Parnell make his way to Evergreen to rob someone shopping for office supplies!? Wow and now were adding more great stores to the area. That really makes me want to shop Evergreen. I'm not trying to be critical its just frustrating. It could happen anywhere but with the amount of police force in Evergreen this shouldn't be happening. They are too focused on speeders maybe they should focus a bit more on problems that are making evergreen crappy and not a destination spot for shopping

Ok here we go again another person blaming the police. I am not in law enforcement and would like to add the EP police do an awesome job in controlling and apprehending these rats on the street. Let me explain to you gypsy women you blame the police but not the liberals and Democrates that give these idiots welfare from cradle to grave and in turn gives them all day to cause mayhem.Also blame the liberals and Democrates for not allowing CCW in Illinois to tame these beasts. I lived in Texas and it works. They don't have this mess their it's peaceful. These beasts would be shot down in their tracks. Any way go up to 95th and western it takes the army to controll that mess up there so don't blame the police.

OK I can understand what you are saying but the fact is that Evergreen isn't getting any nicer. Build all the nice stores you want. Not protecting the safety of citizens in their own town causes people to not want to live in or patronize shops in that town. You yourself are admitting 95th and Western is a mess and instead of everyone slapping a "for sale" sign on their house the minute shit hits the fan why not stand your ground and take control of the situation. I'm not necessarily "blaming" the police I'm observing that I constantly see speed traps all over town meanwhile another person from another neighborhood is at the 95th St Walmart shoplifting again giving Evergreen an even higher crime state.Maybe the citizens and law enforcement should join together to combat the problem before it gets worse. And if you think its a crazy notion ask yourself where you like to shop and where you would like to live and why? Then tell me how you feel living somewhere where you don't even want to spend your hard earned money because you have to worry about either getting treated like crap from employees who hate their job(walmart...)or getting jumped and robbed on your way to your car...
