Oak Park, IL is violent af

I recently was doing a search for stuff on Oak Park, IL for the Halloween Season because it’s so boring here. And I used Google which had a list of questions that was frequently asked on the site. The site question was: “Is Oak Park IL safe?”  LOL Really people are we trying to find out if this hippie-fascist village is safe? At this point it is a foregone conclusion, especially if you are reading this (you are still alive).

But according to the FBI (Federal Bureau of Investigation) you have a one to thirty-two chance of being a victim of a reported crime. Yes, I said reported crime, because not all crimes are reported. Taking into the basic population of Oak Park, Il around 51 thousand people that is a not a good statistic most of these crimes are property related. But the village average of violent crimes is higher than the state (Illinois) average of violent crimes, averaged out to 348 violent crimes per square mile in the village.

Meaning that Oak Park, Il is not as safe as it appears to be, the village might as well integrate with the Austin area and bring down its crime rate. Hahahahahaha! Wild wild west: Oak Park, IL. And now you wonder why people do not want to live in this dusty lawless little burb. Do not believe the hype.

Sojourner house -Oak Park Housing Authority housing homeless patients

The Oak Park Housing Authority owns the Sojourner house which makes it’s mission to house homeless patients after surgery in an effort for patients to recover and help places like MacNeal Hospital house these individuals temporarily. Now how this feat of overwhelming compassion happens without some resident going freaking crazy is beyond me. But this is really is good thing that the village is doing. Hopefully in turn there is some money being thrown to the village by the state of Illinois, because that is just how the state works.

At the same time major metropolitan areas are pushing their homeless out of areas they have decided to encamp upon, the village is giving temporary refuge to those healing form injuries they could not afford nor had a place to get better from. I hope that the village does stay the course of this mission at Sojourner house because these are individuals who obviously have no one else to depend upon Hopefully (I am using that a lot) as a society and as the idiots in Oak Park, IL who always like to portray themselves as that beacon on hill,  who find the moral decency to keep this program going for years to come.
