Yeah, REALLY, Patch! Would it kill you to rewrite a press release WITHOUT adding erroneous information? Or better yet, maybe it's time for your "reporters" to get out there in the community and actually SEE what's what. Oh, Patch! Dear, funny Patch!

Not good to hear. Pretty bold to rob a fairly busy convenience store in broad daylight.

Perfect example of the crimes that happen when section 8 takes over a great neighborhood. Sad.

We've been here since 91 so it's been a while dealing with what goes on at Bailey and Coach/Oxford. I don't know if you remember way back when, but the Naperville police put in place a POLICE SUBSTATION at the apartment location because it had gotten so "BAD". They actually had an officer stationed at that location and most of the riff raff died down for quite a bit of time. But because of BUDGETARY cuts, etc. of course that substation was shut down. Then things started to happen again. Keep in mind, most of the people there are good people. They're just in a bad situation and the few that we do know (our kids go to school with their kids), are trying to do their best to raise their kids with what ever limited resources they may have.
