And you wonder why Woodridge residents don't feel as safe as they used to. Landloards, please screen your applicants to keep the scum out! Renters stand up and fight for your safety. I live on Woodridge Drive and see Police & Fire responding to trouble at those apartments all day.

WGC "Police believe this is an isolated incident and there is no threat to the public.," have they put the murderer in jail? If not, there is still a threat.

Tishawn, What I meant is that every resident, no matter who they are or where they live needs to work together to provide a safe place to live for everyone and to identify and prosecute those who challange this belief.

My brother was never scum.. Before you can judge someone know that person 1st. Our pass is just our pass and when these charges were brought up they were from years ago. Let a person judge when they are perfect and NO1 IN THIS WORLD IS PERFECT, SO UNTIL THEN GOD HAVE MERCY ON UR SOUL WHEN IT'S YOUR TURN.
