    Guardian Angles lol whatas wrong with you people? Metro Enforcement they lost all the guys that were doing there jobs BUT Hodges won't pay them to do it would you work out in these places for 12 bucks an hour? Guardian Angels lol that's all we need are more street thugs out there out here walking targets I think you people need to research that a bit closer. Here's another tip if your sick of what's going on in your neighborhoods PICK UP THE DAM phone and start reporting what's going on if you don't report the problem guess what YOUR the one allowing the problems to continue which Means YOUR PART OF THE PROBLEM

    I agree about the Guardian Angels. I also agree with the FBI about how dangerous Rockford has become. I see teen girls on off-ramps with signs saying they will do anything for money. I have seen many drug deals on the side streets, those are hard to Miss. When taking items to young mothers in those same projects, I have had up to three men waving bandanas at a time because they assume I am there to buy drugs. Every project needs dozens of cameras recording all the time. Nobody is safe, and gunshots abound.

    Call your reps and state senators and tell them to vote for concealled carry in IL. When people know everyone is armed crime will go done. Research the statistics.

    It's nice to see that Rockbottom is earning that 10th most dangerous city in America via Forbes magazine.
