We commented in may in our Home and Condo owning vs aparments article that there were idiots, maybe hispanic gang bangers or sympathizers, living on the 11200 blk of Whipple that had caused a big problem with the police. We are unaware if they still lived there, but if they do, we would consider looking at that residence as a potential hangout for thugs. Just our opinion. From the comment on where the the police report was filed sounds like the case we are referring to.
Look, we just have to be vigilant in our attempts to seek out those who are preying upon us. Teach your kids when to fight, most important lesson, and how to fight. No parent wants their kid being a bully, but no parent especially wants to hear that their kid is a victim. However, be careful, some of these assholes could be armed. And seeing how our government won't let us arm ourselves, we have to choose our battles wisely.
