  1. Never underestimate the will and power of the people of Chicago. The historical Gay and Lesbian Pride Parade should let it rest this coming June and stage The Not Any More March, with loud voices and neighborhood pride. Put aside the fact that there are not enough patrolman in the 19th. dist. we all know that. Take back your neighborhood as a community.

    1. It's too late for that. The former Gay Pride Parade...now the all inclusive Pride Parade has become just a giant pub crawl. It's another excuse for people to flood in from outside of the neighborhood, trash the place and leave the mess they created behind them. It's taken on a life of it's own, and now it has no relevance to its original intent.

    2. It's never to late for that. To stand up to be heard. We are Americans and we fight for our freedom. People live in terror in the 19TH. district. Fight back.

  2. Crime is spreading through our neighborhoods like an uncontrollable cancer. Most seem to be attached to the CTA "crime line" trains.

  3. And how many buildings does Rahm or Tunney have a interest in? They knew about this plan for some time.

  4. This is a great blog.
    Is there a similar blog for Andersonville?
    After 20 years in Lakeview, I don't feel safe anymore and want to move to Andersonville.

    1. Thank you, Anonymous. Unfortunately, we are not aware of a blog like ours that covers the Andersonville area.

    2. Start a blog in Andersonville . Your alderman Pawar lied about being a reformer, then he had a fundraiser where Rahm donated to him and now Pawar is a total Rahm guy. He has to do too along with Rahm next election.

    3. I used to operate edgevillebuzz.com. We focused more on crime than the current owners, but they do report on things you won't hear via mainstream news sources.

  5. I wonder how many people complaining voted for Rahm? I din't for the record because I saw him for what he was. Vote him out will solve a lot of problems. The Alderman's hands are tied because the Dictator Rahm will destroy them if they go against him. Wake up people Rahm is solely the problem for the crime increase.

  6. Instead of the National Guard coming in to 19 we will be getting a lot of bike patrol coppers. Best of luck dodging the pot holes guys and galls. "hold my bike down for rim repairs im waiting on a replacement bike." Here's an idea. 75 new patrol officers 24/7 in 19. In new fast response cars.

    1. The bike officers come every year and are to patrol the lakefront. It's a park district security grant. You'll see very little of them in the neighborhoods.

  7. Im sorry,, the problems that have have arisen in Boystown started long before Rahm became mayor.

    1. Started with Daley is correct but Rahm ran on promising more police. It was a known problem from the get go and Rahm was well known as a snake before he was elected. After all he didn't even live in Chicago at the time.

  8. For the record, the Fullerton station is not located near Fullerton & Clark. It's located near Fullerton & Sheffield.
