    These crimes occur in Cicero because when parents like myself try to get help from the police when there kids are being bothered by gangs or bullies they blow you off. They see you like another frantic mother. Till they see parents crying over their dead kids body then they want to investigate. mean while I wait for help as my soon keeps getting harrassed and assalted.
