I realize everone has a right to speak there minds here, but the last thing we need are people stirring the pot. We do, as citizens of Tinley, need to be more aware of the people walking through our neighborhoods. Watch them and let them know that you are watching them. Don't be afraid to take down license nos and descriptions. Our police care! They really do want to provide us with a safe place to live, but they do need our help. Call and report any unusual or suspicous activity in your neighborhood. Understand they cannot be on every block in our town. Start a neighborhood watch. Ask people what they are doing if they are just hanging around. We need to protect what is ours. Be your own guard dog. I do agree that we should have all been alerted to the fact of the shooting up on 183rd last Tues and the burglary situation on New England. A community on alert is a proactive community. Let's not hide these activities from the community. An informed community can be a prepared and vigilant community. Please let us know when there are attacks, break-in, etc. It is our right as a citizen. Here it is three days later and we still do not have a description of the other suspect. That is something that needs to be rectified.

"Ding-dong ditch" is not just an annoying prank... it's a common pre-break-in tactic to determine whether anyone (or anyone with big teeth) is at home.
