  1. I hope that the Maywood Police Department can charge the person that did the hit-and-run crash that happened this morning. My thoughts and prayers goes out to the Shelton Family in this difficult time. This should not have happened.

  2. This activity is very sad, for someone to have to be driving this fast on the street. Maywood has lost three young black people today. The reason i say three, because once this young lady who cause this accident realize what she done. The young lady mental state is going to be damage for the rest of her life. Maywood, we are in a state of emergency. The young is dying rapidly an no one cares. Maywood citizens never been this selfish towards there people, but know we are being shape by politics and not by love. People has been let in our lovely community and has destroyed it, our past elders spirit is hunting us, due to our leaders wickedness. This is Maywood 5 to 6 murder and the death has been all young people, who imagine dying before life get started. We all have to answer for our life choices, especially for those in leadership positions. Pray for the families involve in this tragedy.

    1. I totally agree what you typed. The village of Maywood is in critical condition. It is going to really take a miracle for Maywood to really move forward, and bring progressive ideas. With this mayor local election that is coming up…the residents really need to take back their neighborhood and get involved.
