The OP Police will escort you around Oak Park, IL if you feel scared….

Wow so the Oak Park police will escort you through the area if you feel threatened? Lol how about having some extra patrols through the area? Honestly, if I am calling the police because I do not feel safe at that point I believe you will need more than an escort. Or if you are calling the police it is after a crime has already been committed. I wonder how many crank calls, or nervous “nillys” have called in to use this service already? It seems to me like throwing money at a problem that does not match the solution at all.

Instead of doing more patrols just call us if you feel scared? Huh? What is the criteria for getting a ride like this? What is the timeframe? What is the average cost for each time this service is used? How effective is this service to deterring crime? Is the service being used properly, i.e.: is there an actual threat?

There a ton of questions I can ask but to me, this just seems like a fluff piece of news, or a way for the police department or village to act like it is being proactive without doing something really substantial. Oh well it’s your tax dollars at “work”

Oak Park, IL election 2017: Ballot case not resolved

There is another issue of candidates not being eligible for being on the ballot, of course, more corruption in the tiny little village of Oak Park, IL. Tons of property being allocated for development and no planning whatsoever it makes traveling through Oak Park a nightmare and it seems if the village trustees get paid who cares right? Well, bring change to the village has come a whole lot harder and I am thankful that I do not own property in this bitch.

This little shitty little village has become more and more like Chicago and it does not even know it or want to admit it. Another waste of time for the voters, more taxpayer dollars wasted on court hearings crappy played out election results that will lead to favor whoever the money is behind, sounds just like Chicago!

No wonder most residents are heading south to places like Orland Park or even Schaumburg who would want to stay here where corruption is out in the open? Even the legends of Wright and Hemingway cannot restore this village the respectability that it once had, not at all.

Here is the article discussing the candidates on the ballot who may or may not be eligible:
