IL: ‘I’m Scared, Very Scared’: Mass Murderer Moves Into Home Near La Grange Elementary School

[UPDATED LINKS 5/2/18] [nbcchicago.com 4/30/18]

Parents tell NBC 5 they’re shocked a mass murderer recently released from prison moved in right across the street from a suburban elementary school.

_______, 77, just got out of prison after serving time for killing five people in a Yorkville restaurant in 1972. Neighbors say he’s living in a La Grange home with a family who took him in as part of an outreach program with their Hinsdale church. The home is across the street from Seventh Avenue School.

How could a sex offender you know, have rules but someone who’s a mass murderer, it’s OK to live right across from a school?” a local mother asked.

A few neighbors disagree, telling NBC 5 off-camera that Reimann should get a second chance since he served his time. But most want to see a change.

“There should be a law that will prevent anyone with a record like that from living near schools,” a parent said.

The state’s Violent Offender Against Youth Registry requires Reimann to tell them where he’s living and prevents him from going onto school property because one of the five people shot to death was only 16.

    Another fear factoring propaganda to trip everyone off, and not one person that is brave enough to investigate this to know of there’s truth in this or not.

    • RC's can't even live where they want already

      NOW even a Murderer, my gosh, he’s a Geriatric and his crime was decades ago!
      What fear mongering, you are sure correct TR.
      More continual punishment. Wow, ignorant folks. What happened to Rehab and new leafs

    Witch Hunt Hysteria-
    They are all worried about the one person they know about who’s been let out of prison after serving his time.
    What about all those they don’t know about?
    It’s the “not in my backyard” mentality.

    This is actually a good thing for RCs because if they start to raise residential restrictions for individuals like this, much like they do for RCs next door in WI (not sure about IL), then they could continue to perpetuate it to were people may really take a look at the entire concept as a whole. Who wants a neighbor from Joliet? (Queue Blues Brothers) If they take a look at it as a whole, then folks may, not a guarantee, begin to see the reality of it and how it could apply. First, it is a school across the street, then it could be the park down the street, maybe the bus stop or any place where people congregate, and who should it apply to, etc.

    This is along the lines of a registry for all regardless of their offense committed. This sucks for this guy and his new housemates, but it is the reality of the American mindset (working its way globally).
