The Rogers Park Positive Loitering group is a volunteer association of all residents who believe that our collective appearance as a group of non-confrontational "loiterers" will give a visible and powerful message that the community belongs to all of us. Part of our message is that we are a diverse, organized, and alert body of neighbors who act as the eyes and ears for one another and for our police enforcement services.

We meet at predetermined locations and times that are arranged on a monthly basis based on the needs of the community. We then walk through the neighborhood accompanied by a police escort. In order to protect everyone's safety, the complete route is announced to members the night of the event.

    Carl, Without a doubt I am venting- it is not an abnormal reaction to an irrational situation such as the gun violence we have experienced for the last several months and the politicians failure to provide remedy. I will stand by my comments that the individuals who commit these acts- Sunday's Morse Avenue shooting, the Will Lewis shooting, the Keno Glass shooting, the Maryko Carr shooting those illegally possessing, discharging, and utilizing firearms in the commission of or to support criminal activity are what I stated WORTHLESS SUBHUMAN FILTH.
    I also disagree with you that there is any rational explanation for these acts. There may be explanations which justify the acts to the to the perpetrator, but in the eyes of the rational sane community there is no way of removing the damage, the sin, the tort,, or unringing the proverbial bell which one has rung by their own volition. I am not the one dehumanizing others; they do that to themselves. I am merely the guy whos safety is threatened on a daily basis by the irrational acts of this vermin and I am screaming out loudly because those entrusted to protect us from this are corrupting the system for their own political needs. I am tired of hearing self serving politicians recite the same drone statistics over and over about overcrowded prisons, The message that Anita Alvarez and Joe Moore are sending to the gangbanger community is that crime dos pay. We need a new Cook County States Attorney and a new 49th Ward Alderman.

Please join me for an afternoon of family fun at the 24th Annual BACK TO SCHOOL PICNIC, this Sunday, August 24th, from 12:00 noon to 4:00 p.m. at Loyola Park (Farwell and the Lake).

I am proud to co-host this year's event with my good friend, State Senator Heather Steans.

We're reminding kids and parents of the importance of returning to school and giving away free school supplies. But this is also a COMMUNITY PICNIC for people of all ages.

The picnic will feature an appearance by the world famous Jesse White Tumbling Team. We're also serving up free food, drinks and music and offering a host of games and prizes. We'll have bingo for the seniors and face painting for the kids, a dance contest, a jumping jack and other carnival toys. In short, it will be a fun day for EVERYONE!

For more information, please reply to this e-mail or call my Ward Service Office at 773-338-5796.

Heather and I look forward to seeing you on Sunday!

    Sparky, please feel free to mute me, "K hon". Even though you have nothing to contribute (now or in your past puppetry) of any consequence, I don't mute. And, "hon" you have these bad habits that you continue to exhibit with each and every new identity you create. Your nasty temperament toward anyone that disagrees with you or questions you is most disagreeable and ugly. That you feel the need to comment on most every post just to attack others is most pitiful. I have no idea why you feel the need to continue these antics.
