Keep alert around here. The cops can't be everywhere.

Crime can happen anywhere. It's always best to keep your eyes open, and stay alert. Whether you live in Barrington or Bolingbrook.

Wow Tom common misdemeanors and every day occurrences every where in Illinois! But it seems like a weekly occurrence in Bolingbrook that someone is beaten and robbed at gun point! At least I can walk anywhere in Naperville with out my 8 pals, but I have to in Bolingbrook when I go there on rare occasions.

Only if the 99.9% of low life's that are arrested are out of towners and from Bolingbrook should stay out of Naperville and stop causing their criminal activity!

Vera, Do you do anything except hang out on the patch website, only to badmouth the neighborhood? Go find some work and start contributing to society. You spew your opinion all over the message boards and do nothing about it in real life. Good luck with that in your future. Say hi to all your internet friends for us.

Michael I do a lot about it in real life and have a right to voice my concern and opinoins about crime and violence anywhere I please! Plus I do plenty for society and proud of it. What neighborhood?

Vera, Thanks for letting us know that OD's from Heroin are a common occurrence in Naperville.

Vera, It looks like child pornography and child molestation are also common in Naperville. http://naperville.patch.com/articles/part-of-teen-s-bond-in-child-porn-case-to-pay-for-sex-offender-test http://naperville.patch.com/articles/naperville-man-sentenced-in-st-charles-molestation-939ddfeb http://naperville.patch.com/articles/naperville-man-gets-life-sentence-for-sexually-assaulting-2-young-sisters What about bomb making? http://naperville.patch.com/articles/explosive-device-set-off-at-naperville-residence-police And trying to hire a hitman? http://naperville.patch.com/articles/naperville-man-pleads-guilty-to-ordering-hit-sentencing-confusion-in-armed-robbery-case-6c7fb835

All criminals are cowards. That is a fact.

Ron that's very true! I'm tempted to walk the troubled areas of Bolingbrook to see if these low life scum try something with me and I'll give them .45 reasons not to do so!

Tom I don't care where a person Od's they are idiots to use drugs in the first place!
tom October 11, 2012 at 12:00 PM
Vera, You've made it loud and clear that you don't care about the heroin problem in Naperville. Do you care about the amount of child predators you have in Naperville? What about people that hire hitmen or try to set off bombs? Naperville isn't the Mayberry that you try to pass it off as.
