2012: 99-YEAR-OLD ROMEOVILLE WOMAN ROBBED DURING HOME INVASION

It was reported that a 99-year-old woman was robbed during a home invasion this week. Thieves posed as village worker’s when they busted into the home, located in Romeoville, IL.

When her 62-year-old son answered the door and told them they did not need their water pressure checked, they pushed past him and knocked him down.  He and his mother were duct taped to chairs and told to keep their mouths shut.  They hit the elderly woman in the face and then stole money from the home before leaving.

This is a disgrace…Who hits a senior citizen and knocks them down?  What if it was their grandmother…they would be furious.  The three presumed hispanic men, reportedly escaped in a black truck…let’s hope their friends and family turn them in.

What has this world come to?  What happened to respecting your elder…this generation has a lot to learn.  SERIOUSLY, is money worth that much to these animals?  This is tragic.

Ann Budzinsky is a tough senior, she refused medical attention and is said to be doing well.

12/29/11: OFF-DUTY CHICAGO POLICE OFFICER SHOT ON WEST SIDE; KILLED DURING CONVENIENCE STORE ROBBERY

The crime and shootings in Chicago has touched a nerve.  It reached a new low tonight, when an off-duty Chicago police officer was fatally shot during a robbery in the Austin neighborhood.  This was the first police officer killed this year, which is a huge blow to the department.

According to police, the 8-year veteran, 41-year-old Clifton Lewis, was working private security detail at M & M Quick Food Store located near the 1200 block of North Austin.  He was fatally shot while trying to stop the robbery, and his gun and badge was initially missing but was later found.  Lewis was rushed to Stroger Hospital in critical condition, where he later died.

It is another unnecessary loss of life during this heightened crime wave throughout the city.  Reports of children shot, car jackings, robberies and senseless deaths has become a daily occurrence and does not seem to be slowing down.  The recent Church’s Chicken shooting was another example of the madness.  

We need to take our city back…although the job market appears to be getting better, the shootings seem to be getting worse.  While we are in desperate times, many people need a reminder of the value of life.  Is a couple hundred bucks worth a human life? 

Seriously, get a job and earn money the old-fashioned way.  Stealing from others is certainly not the way to go and when you spend your life in prison, you will realize just how wrong it is.

R.I.P. Officer Lewis…your partners will have your back and get justice in your name.  They are now looking for two men suspected of the crime.  Tragic…he had just got engaged on Christmas Day.

UPDATE 11:59PM: ONE SUSPECT IS IN CUSTODY…STOLEN BADGE & WEAPON RECOVERED.

(VIDEO) CHICAGO 2011: SNATCH & GRAB GANG HITS NAPERVILLE; POLICE WARN RESIDENTS

The City of Chicago is having serious problems with controlling violence.  It is especially intense when it comes to the recent shootings, involving innocent victims which includes small children.  But it seems crime is now also reaching surrounding suburbs, including unlikely neighborhoods. 

It was reported that a smash-and-grab gang known has “The Felony Lane Gang” headed to Naperville  this week.  They move quickly and have targeted two parks, robbing victims then escaping so fast it is hard to identify them.  Police sent a warning area residents asking that they become more cautious. 

CBS reported that “The Felony Lane Gang” has at least 100 members.  If you live in the city or suburbs, it is time to keep your guard up, because this seems to be getting worse.  Naperville was named “most desired place to live” for goodness sakes!

Unfortunately, this may be a sign of the times, with the lagging economy and high unemployment rates in Chicago, some may now resort to theft to survive.  Let’s hope police officials get this under control quickly, we certainly don’t want  the crime to become out-of-control, like it currently is in Mexico.
