    WhistleSTOP program to host mini-launch
    A recent spike in crime in the Hyde Park neighborhood over the last few weeks has some Hyde Park residents on high alert, and as a result, some are looking for ways to stay safe. The WhistleSTOP program will host a mini-launch, Saturday, Dec. 10 from 10 a.m. until 2 p.m.

  • You are just going to have to install cameras in parks, at intersections and certain buildings. Hyde Park is no longer a neighborhood where residents just go to school, go to work, involved in community activities. We're not in Kansas anymore.

  • San Francisco saw a 34.6 percent reduction in gunfire between 2014 and 2015, the most of any city in California, according to a report by the shot-detection company used by the city.

    The dramatic drop in gunfire was the fifth-largest of the more than 60 cities nationwide that use ShotSpotter, the technology that instantly notifies police of the whereabouts of gunfire and counts how many shots were heard.

    Again, have you read Code of Silence, by Jamie Kalvin?

    There have been several feature stories in the Chicago Sun Times about how the thoroughly corrupt Chicago Police Department conspired against gang affiliated black male youth in the Ida B. Wells public housing development for a decade!

  • That's rather a generalization; "thoroughly corrupt Chicago Police Department" is a reach. Corrupt officers on the force? Yes. Are ALL officers corrupt? Hardly.... Stereotyping is not a good practice.
