Letter: Stay vigilant

To the Editor:

As a former seven-year resident of that wonderful Boulder Hill area, I couldn’t agree more with that proverbial statement of 99.9 percent those residents being super duper wonderful.

Just like the super 99.9 percent awesome neighbors I have now in Oswego. Sadly though, when you have your proverbial 0.01 percent of those residents that are into violent gang activities, that’s what they call a serious issue, as begrudgingly reported lately in your local Oswego Ledger. Citizens and elected officials who dismiss or believe otherwise are shockingly clueless and the epitome of misinformed.

Just a reminder. The acceptable amount of violent hateful gang crimes and shootings is always zero! Also, citizens who use hateful rhetoric about their 'hood being disrespected and wanting an apology for obvious community gang problems are almost of that sad "no snitching" mentality. Instead of attacking the clairvoyant messenger: Try contacting your elected officials and ask why they don’t have harsh hate crime-like laws for these heinous/murderous gang criminals.

Or ask why do we allow certain cities to give sanctuary to those criminally illegal gang members? Why aren’t those elected officials called out and held responsible for their community-destroying policies? I could go on and on but my clairvoyance tells me these questions will never ever be asked to our elected officials by our watchdog press. (A Oswego resident was violently murdered just recently, along with two other local residents in Wisconsin, in a nationwide story. The Oswego Ledger as of one week later has not one informational news story on that incident. Why? What should we call that type of watchdog journalism?)

I also foresee they will never talk about who's on those surrounding counties' most wanted lists, either.

Stay vigilant. Especially if going to a local gas station at 1 p.m. in the afternoon.
