Last month a group of teenagers who now call themselves the GMT gang, or Get Money Team, were responsible for a rash of carjackings in Rockford, and they are up to no good again. This time though, they have a different target. 

It absolutely infuriates me that we now have to be fearful of getting robbed when taking our children to the local park. I wish I could open a can of you-know-what on these teenage criminals, and their parents who seem to be doing nothing about it.




I guess the best thing we can do to stay is safe is leave our valuables at home or locked in the trunk of the car when possible, and to always constantly be aware of our surroundings and suspicious behavior.
