Shooting today at 1:50PM, 7400 block of N. Hoyne

. . .that is MY block. I was out at the time, but there are now sketchy people in overpriced cars all over the area, playing cat & mouse with the cops. One guy in a brand-new black Porsche Carrera with nearly-opaque tinted windows has circled the block at least a dozen times at break-neck speed. He's pretty obviously looking for someone.

    As a teenager I lived with my parents in the 2000 block of West Jarvis (between Seeley and Hoyne) from 1972 until 1982. My aunt lived on the corner of Fargo and Damen. That neighborhood was so quiet and peaceful back then. You could walk around at any time of the day or night and never have a concern for your safety. Violence around there was almost unheard of. The majority of the 3 flats, 4 flats and 6 flats were owned by live in families who took pride in their community. It was a very well maintained, clean and tidy neighborhood.
    Things began to change in the early 1980's. The first building that changed was the one on the South West corner of Jarvis and Damen. I came back from college and I noticed some unsavory characters hanging out in the alley between Jarvis and Chase. We all used to hang in the alleys at times working on our cars by our garages. But these folks were sitting in lawn chairs, drinking and playing loud music and making rude comments to passers by. Making cat calls to my mother as she walked to Rogers Pantry. (really?) I saw tenants in that building trying to drop bags of garbage out of third floor windows into the dumpster and miss. The nice manicured lawn became a dirty, muddy mess.
    As it turned out the building had sold and the new owners allowed section 8, low income housing. It wasn't long after that that many other building owners followed suit. I have nothing against low income housing, everyone needs shelter, but why destroy it and make it ugly. There was no community pride anymore. No one seemed to care. It became intolerable to watch the change to my quiet, safe neighborhood. I left in 1982 never to return.

    Rogers Park has changed dramatically from the 60's/70's when you and I grew up there, no question about that. What I am seeing here on Every Block is a passion and commitment from many to improve it. Rogers Park will never be the same as when you and I grew up there Mark but it could be even better in some ways. It's going to take this community working together and not allowing the things you described happening (the garbage tossing, disrespect and doing something about the gangs) to continue. I loved the Rogers Park I grew up in but I believe that this Rogers Park can be even better. I really, really want to believe that.

    I apologize if came across the wrong way.....there was no intention in eliciting a negative reaction. The intention was to elucidate an event in history to explain its origin and distinguish between an event which occurred thirty years ago and what might transpire today. Based upon the additional information which has been posted since late last night....there appears to be substantial question with regard to whether the device was, in fact a bomb, or in an incendiary device. However, given the ultimate target, the notion that this was an accident is about as plausible as to say that the owner of the vehicle choose the spot to part because he was aware that a meteor would strike at a specific time in a specific location yesterday.
