More Crime in Oak Park, IL at my fav 7-eleven!

Yeah, so crime hit one of my favorite stops on my way to the downtown area the 7-Eleven on Chicago avenue was hit by two bozos with a gun. Kind of crazy because every time I go into this location there is either a cop leaving, or coming in as I leave so I thought this was a better or safer location but I guess I was wrong. I wonder what all the taxes that the residents pay to go to?

Oh right, that money is going to be used for swimming pools they cannot use and helping developers pimp out downtown Oak Park instead of paying for more cops. Or are the cops are even doing their job? For some of the stupid crimes that are listed in the article below, it seems this is either a mixed bag answer or just a standard “no” especially when the offenders fleeing on foot from this 7-eleven location.

These are some of the dumbest criminals on the face of the planet who only got $60 for their troubles and then run away to …safety because they are no cops to stop them. Of course, Oak Park, IL’s government is not concerned with important matters like safety or parking issues for its residents just the high rise and making a buck off the trust of the residents.

Tasers for Oak Park, IL Police… finally

Although it is awesome news that the Oak Park Police Department are getting Tasers so that they can police the area properly, I remember bitching around the time the Cubs were in the series and how it may be dangerous for me to go back and forth between Oak Park, Il and Wrigleyville.

One of the main options is the green line, I do not take the blue line as much since some dude threw a bag of poop on a rider a year or two ago, but now hearing that even the cops are being attacked and choked out on a green line train. The fact that the department is the only one in the area without Taser is crazy, although the village is more concerned with multimillion dollar pools for the Oak Park River Forest High School its shows where their priorities!

Pool over officer safety and proper policing, sounds just like Oak park, Il more concerned with ascetic than functional or common sense needs. Just ridiculous and here everyone I knew thought I was a crazy paranoid bitch worrying about the crime issues on the “L” lines, but now we know.  

Here is the article that discusses the approval of the $90k budget for the Tasers (cheaper than a $40 million pool):
