    1. ......but they're allowed to do that. Just loiter there in groups for an hour waiting for the perfect victim and harassing/insulting/threatening others in the meantime. They have a right...in Chicago. No bullying. Oops, I mean no profiling. I get the charities I give to all mixed up anymore.

  2. As long as Rahm is mayor all the cops will go to the south and west side and we will continue to lose police. Our safety and quality of life is dependent on him being defeated. He believes he is unbeatable.

    1. It would help if you'd shut down those little junk/cellphone stores near every Red Line stop that have makeshift cardboard signs in the window that read "We unlock phones $25". I can't, for the life of me, understand why this is ignored by the police and community residents as well.

      Because it's legal?

  4. There were undesirables hanging in groups all over that street on Thursday at 1:30am when I drove through. An ambulance in front of Hydrate and a cop car with it's flashers on nearby as well. I can't believe I used to walk home through there at midnight years ago.
