First you hear about all of the garbage in the Heights, and now this happens in Homewoood. The town used to be a really nice place to live but now, it's a dump and it's not going to get any better. It's Harvey gone south.

Myles criminals travel they may not live in the area. Homewood is still a great community. These robbers and thieves target areas that are in-touched by criminal activity. The expressway is right up the streets from this Jewel they could have easily hopped on the expressway and headed to Chicago or Indiana. However I do understand your point. As long as we have uneducated, un-productive people without a desire to improve their lives we are gonna have crime.

Homewood is still a really nice place to live. Things like this happen everywhere, including Frankfort, Naperville, Hinsdale...

And it is the responsibility of the parents to teach their children right from wrong, to stay in school and apply themselves academically. Homewood and Flossmoor schools are excellent. The trouble is that some parents don't give a hoot about their children, and then they turn to crime... possibly because the parents are also criminals.

Amen!! Southside. I love Homewood/Flossmoor as long as we don't coward down and move away it will not become a Harvey besides the real estate taxes are too expensive for anyone whose not employed.

Whatever happened to hyper-vigilant, gun toting security guards at banks? Do they exist anymore? I've not seen one in years. Perhaps the "robbers" haven't seen them either. Hence why their crimes have become so easy to commit. I truly appreciate direct deposit, drive through, and online banking.
