Carjacking to Oak Park, IL is just stupid

So like I said the stupid has hit Oak Park, Il just a hint to all carjackers that the streets and traffic in Oak Park, Il are NOT conducive to carjacking, crimes that include a car, or driving in any shape or form. The idea of anyone young or old whizzing in a car through the streets of Oak Park, Il is ridiculous yo ass is California dreaming.

I just do not understand the reasoning behind it but I guess there is no thinking or reasoning with criminals. The idea of getting away from the cops in Oak Park Il is silly. Let me clarify getting away from the state or Chicago police, is silly, the Oak Park Il police, yeah you have a good chance if you are a runner. But the two kids in this farce of a crime do not look like runners in any sense nor do they look like they have a brain or half of one between the two.

Which is very sad, from a standpoint that these kids feel they need to steal to get their kicks or make a little money to get ahead. But hell it frees up the job market from two idiots that for some freak reason might get a job that I would apply for in the future, that’s if they didn’t steal that car. Maybe got a job and, or an education but hey do you boo, I am about getting paid.

And after being in Oak Park, Il for so long I know how two-faced people are espousing “hate don’t have a home here” but don’t have your black friends park in front of my house even if its zoned for public parking! I want to get paid and then out this shit hole. I am not trying to stay around those fake asses or be in an area that dumbasses think they can escape in.

Oak Park: Green Mental Health bracelets

I was watching another afternoon NBC Channel Five news report about how people were adding positive aspects to Oak Park, IL this one was about how to identify those with Mental Health issues with green bracelets. Now, I am the first to be on the fence regarding this because it does invade the privacy of the individual with mental health problems plus their family and friends as well. However, at the same time how many times have you heard of a news report about police harming or shooting individuals that attacked them, and that individual had mental health issues? These bracelets may be a red flag that these individuals are suffering from mental health problems which can save their lives and others if their mental situation deteriorates, but it can also unfairly mark them for discrimination.

At this point police departments are willing to try and offer this solution to help stem any future tragedies is a great idea. Until there are factual cases of discrimination or better ways to identify and help these individuals then these mental health bracelets are the best thing since slice bread for all parties involved. In Chicago to be a Police Officer only 60 College credits are needed, therefore the highest needed for law enforcement work is an Associates or a Bachelor’s degree. You will not get a legal licensed Psychologist for a Cop to arrive at a scene (a call) if someone with Mental Health issues is involved and at least the green bracelet with help officers in Oak Park, IL to identify this an issue and be able to request the right (licensed) person to help.

The only other solution is to require Police Officers to undergo at least 20 more hours of Psychology classes that cover mental health issues and other patterns of human behavior that they may encounter at the job. That is very doubtful, due to the costs involved for the schooling either paid by the officers or the local governments and then add all the time needed to learn all that material in the end it may not seem that logical to enforce such a requirement. In other words the green bracelets foregoes the need for extra intensive training for the officers saves money for the local governments and allows everyone to be protected physically and legally in the end.

 

This is the video article that talks about the Green Mental Health bracelets and the police officers who thought of the idea and made it possible:

“Security in Oak Park, IL wallpaper”: https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/U84UEE

“Oak Park IL fingers up wallpaper”: https://plus.google.com/u/0/collection/suYVEE

The first collection of wallpaper I have posted in the collections selection of Google Plus I called “Oak Park IL fingers up wallpaper”. This is a sarcastic group collection of wallpapers for your computer (PC/MAC) regarding Security issues in Oak Park, Illinois. As I have posted on the blog before, the entities from building management companies, to the OP police department treat security issues and threats as if they have better things to do, like watch paint dry. Therefore, this collection is more of a statement towards the ones that don’t give a shit about you while you travel, rent, own or patron anything in Oak Park, IL your dollars are greatly not appreciated and Oak Park, Il could give a flying fig if you are butt hurt about it.

The second collection is called “Oak Park IL fingers up wallpaper”. What it is, is a collection of sarcastic wallpapers giving Oak Park IL both fingers up. I recreated a photo I once saw and crafted a template around it telling Oak Park, Il where the fuck to go. This is how most people feel half the time when dealing with such everyday Oak Park, Il issues like parking or taxes. Fuck them Fuck the people in Oak Park, Il who make your life miserable.

Enjoy Bitches.

Oak Park, IL blog: The “Master key murder” episode supports what I have said before

I was recently watching the ID channel series called the “Nightmare Next Door”, and there was this one episode called “master key murder” that illustrated one of the issues I had with Oak Park apartments. In a previous blog post, I mentioned I had a master key that opened every door in my apartment building, and how after I found out I received nothing but resistance in trying to change the locks too (at least) my apartment.

Well, this episode from the series “Nightmare Next Door”, a promising young woman is hacked into pieces by her crazy stalking neighbor who… Had a master key to the entire apartment building. At one point, not on did he steal condoms from his neighbors but also had a pair of used (had DNA on it) panties from the victim.

Of course, this was only found out with police searched his apartment but it proves my point that sick ass individuals are out there doing the exact same crazy shit I was worried about. The same stuff that Oak Park Apartments representatives thought I was being silly about or just being dramatic about. Those dumb bitches have no clue about how serious an issue, of having a “floating” master key is.

This crime on illustrates why property management companies, should be extremely careful with individual apartment keys, master key, and all their copies. Plus, anyone who rents should watch this episode or research this tragic case to get a heads up. When I moved to my new place I made sure I got new locks on the main door and had extra locking systems put into place so I can be safe from all the freakin creeps out there. The ones Oak Park Apartments think do not exist.

Oak Park, IL is the asshole Coworker who stresses you out that much that if something happens to them you really don’t care.

I recently heard news about this ex-coworker of mine who died early at 37 due to cancer, wait before you start with the condolences this dude was a dick, much like the boss from office space. The organization that I work for had him in charge of Operations, to Quality Assurance, to Training and Development this fuck was everywhere in the organization because he was a kiss up and yes man.

But the jerk was soooooo incompetent that he did not grasp the essentials to do the job, so he was literally training people wrong and getting them in trouble for not knowing procedures when they came out of training. He is the reason I am studying Training and Development because if his ass oversaw a department for it, then I can do it too, easily. As the director of Quality assurance, he was a fuck up, the stuff he marked people off was head scratching to the point the management staff got pissed off at him. Why? Because the management, in turn, would have to use “corrective measures” on employees to make sure it did not happen again, therefore employees were given verbals, written warnings and even fired due to his asshole behavior.

When confronted that he was wrong on the Quality Assurance reports he would argue it even if you had the policy HE wrote about the how to proceed in that situation which contradicted it. The point is when a friend told me the news I was not even sad, I have lost friends and family to cancer before however they did not go out their ways to be total fucking dicks and in essence, worthy of sentiment.

Fucking with people is the way of Oak Park, IL in the same vein. It is why when shit happens here, people in neighboring suburbs and the City of Chicago, really do not “feel” for the residents or victims of Oak Park, IL. Changing one’s attitude and not imposing your ridiculous standards upon people i.e.: not being a douche bag will most likely get you some sympathy or “get better cards” or even a helping hand. With all the crime that is occurring in Oak Park, IL a change is needed and a helping hand is necessary. But I think much like this ex-coworker the problems here will persist until a major problem arises, and there is nothing that can be done about it. If you gave me a choice of pissing off an entire organization of people and going out at 37 or maybe learn how to work with others to get something done and maybe tack on a couple of years, I would pick the latter. Hopefully, Oak Park, Il will one day choose the latter but I doubt it.

PS: I own up that it is a shitty attitude, but there are times when organizations or people push you to the point that you have nothing but apathy for them.

My Crappy backdoor lock to my Apartment In Oak Park, IL part 2

With the video, my buddy took of the “moving” lock of my back door which I have posted it on Youtube.com. For the second reason, why I post it was so that those who want to move into any of the buildings in Oak Park, Il can see the lackluster job that that this building management company has done in terms of the security for their renters.

As you can see the door is an old-fashioned wood panel door with half the door made of a window frame inlet. Meaning the construction of this door was great for maybe the 1940’s or 1950’s but in today’s society, such a door cannot withstand the criminal, their intent, and a well-placed kick or rock.

Entry into the apartment is frankly easy, even though there is a piece of plastic (1/4) over the window frame it still has areas of vulnerability that needs to be addressed. That having a moving top (main) lock does not solve or help the situation. In fact, it looks like a couple hits from a hammer and a screwdriver to this lock and anyone can get in. With the neighbor downstairs sanding and causing so much racket, none of the other neighbors or myself would hear a burglar forcing their way through this crappy ancient door.

I mentioned it to the guy who showed me the apartment and they said they would be fixed by the time I moved in, so you see how well that went. I hope this video shows potential renters what they face where they rent in Oak Park, IL or anywhere for that matter when you deal with apartment management company that does not give a shit about its renters.

My Crappy backdoor lock to my Apartment In Oak Park, IL part 1

Well, My pal Ma Pro with the Gene Simmons tongue found the video he took of the “moving” lock of my back door! I have posted it on Youtube.com for two reasons. In this post, I will focus on the first reason so the post will not be so lengthy.

The first reason is in the background, you hear, sanding once again from the downstairs neighbor who has decided to make the public back area her personal workshop. This is the area all of the building’s residents go to access the garbage cans and Laundry machines. Some of the residents use this area to move in and out of their new/old apartments or if they have a lot of groceries this area is convenient to back one’s car into and unload them.

However, little miss important and full of herself has decided that we commoners must give up this right and it is now the workshop of the female yuppie Bob Vila. Can you imagine taking your garbage out and traipsing through sawdust? As you can hear from the video she makes a lot of noise so that too is great when you worked a long day at work and need to study or read for class, or even complete your final project for that all important Master’s class!

Oh, but little miss sunshine is sanding, staining and varnishing her wooden furniture step back peasants of Oak Park, IL she is artist-y and that means she is way above your IQ range to be even given a second thought! Selfish bitch. I rant about this in a couple of my posts I believe but here is more evidence that you cannot do shit without this self-absorbed child forcing herself upon everyone else’s state of mind and peace they might have had.

Faulty locks thanks to Oak Park Apartments started this blog

I managed to get my buddy Ma to record what was wrong with my door locks a while back because honestly, I just thought I would just report it to Greenplan Management and poof it would be fixed. Unfortunately, as I stated previously it did not work out that way, and he thought I should video tape the issue just in case. I had him do it because I did not want my hands, voice, anything in the video to identify me… paranoid, right???

So I could post on YouTube to warn other potential renters on what to look for when choosing an apartment or to have just in case I needed evidence that the lock was faulty if there was a break in. Then I lost the freaking video! Well, Ma told me he has it and I will post it up here soon either in a post or I will just edit this one and add it here.

When a key lock is movable it means that it is not securely screwed into the lock. Well if you are trying to get in at night or out of your apartment in a hurry, this could be a problem. Having a lock that works properly is of great importance, whether you are male, female, a couple or a family. You should have the peace of knowing that you are secure in your place or home. This was a key issue that Green plan management (Oak Park Apartments) forgot about with their shitty maintenance, Oh, I did not forget nor did my friend who recorded the video, I do not care if it gets 10 views or 10,000 so long as it is out there as prove of my claims and to show that I am bitchy for a REASON!

There is always cause and effect in the universe and you do not need to be Einstein nor be able to theorize the existence of the Universe to figure that truth out. This blog about Oak Park, Il was born out of something and this is where it started with these damn locks, so Oak Park, IL if you hate me and my blog redirect that shit onto Green Plan Management because they were the patron, the Latin meaning of the word, not the drink (which is fucking good by the way!), of all this, this the blog, my attitude, everything is upon them. All it took was one lazy ass nudge and bamm a monster was born.

My disdain for Oak Park will never leave

Being a student of psychology, I hate to use labels and psychological terminology. But having lived and escaped from Oak Park, I swear I experience some sort of Post-Traumatic Stress whenever I come close to this town or have to drive through it.  For those who may think that statement goes too far, I beg to differ.

My heartbeat accelerates, my eye begins to twitch, I sweat, I curse, and my anger is stimulated.  All of this, as a result of living in Oak Park.  They say that life experiences can change you.  Well living in Oak Park changed me.  And not for the better.

For as long as I can remember, living out south in my youth, I always looked at Oak Park, through the lenses of an immature child. The full trees, along with the manicured and immaculate lawns, almost always drew me in. Well until I actually stepped out of the car, and begin to walk and experience the streets of Oak Park.

If the stress of avoiding dog poop, like landmines that are almost everywhere are not enough, try living near elderly white women who approach other’s like it is their duty to direct the village. Or how about digesting on a daily basis the name of Ernest Hemingway or Frank Lloyd Wright, whom this town utilizes in every marketing ploy imaginable.

Having had the opportunity of living there, I also experienced the lack of parking (I had to move my car at least two or three times a day to abide by the various parking restrictions), news reports on individuals from neighboring towns (the west side of Chicago) coming to this “precious” area to break into homes or cars, or businesses opening up one day, to be shut down the next (damn I miss Falafel).

It is not the hippie-loving easy going atmosphere that I presumed it to be.  It is overly congested, overly populated (with people and dogs) with know it all’s that embrace a very sheltered form of living.

The idea of “vintage” is actually a management’s office way of not updating the apartments. From my experience, painting already chipped “lead based” walls is not the same as updating the apartment.  But if you like to use the word “vintage” like Oak Park almost always does, keep in mind you may have old broke down living arrangements.  Thanks “Green plan management”!

There are many other great suburbs or towns to live in, that are not far from downtown.  After living in Oak Park, I opted out for one of these calmer cities that do not evoke my anxiety to levels of rage. You may want to do the same or at least consider it if you are thinking “No Park” I mean “Oak Park” is the way to go.
