    Thank YOU Christopher of Estes...For making my point.

    You do not know who "aims to murder" and who does not. And making sweeping assumptions about a group and acting upon those assumptions based on nothing more than paranoid speculation is like reading a portion of a manifesto by Joseph Stalin.
    Fortunately, your opinion is shared by a minority in this country.

    Why thank you. Can we all agree that certain gangs operate with the intent to do harm to others, and that having guns on public ways should be illegal. Especially if they are unregistered. The definition of a gang, according to the dictionary is - any gathering of 2 or more people. This can mean a church group, classroom, or gathering of congress. When the gangs commit felonies or other crimes, that is indeed the crime. To assault and disrupt the way of life for honest, hardworking citizens, is illegal. I do not always agree with certain laws, or the actions of some politicians as long as it follows the constitutional rights of all citizens, and those visiting from abroad.

    I do think the involvement of a police state, or big brother society can make things worse of course. I saw Robocop and Nonstop and do acknowledge the inherent sin that breach of technology incurs. I know enough about computers to know that anyone can make up a fake identity to do harm to others. Unfortunately with the recession many are doing this to prey on the hopes and dreams of those looking to make a better life for themselves. I rarely do business with any place before doing a thorough check on how they handle disputes, because money does not grow on trees.

    I think that police agencies should ditch the marked and unmarked squad cars for used Nissans or Chevys and go truly undercover. I think the concealed carry law was a big mistake, as it was not fully defined before it became a law. Unless we all either decide to quit our day jobs to become police officers, or police ourselves we need to go over each law and see how it can potentially harm someone.

I'll rent a parking spot if you have one near Bosworth & Pratt

Howdy neighbors. I just moved in at Bosworth & Pratt about 10 days ago. I'm in a 6-flat but looking to pay for an available parking spot for the year.

Garage would be great, but outdoor could work. I'm across from Kilmer Elementary. Something in my alley of course would be ideal but anything within 2-3 blocks including off North Shore, Greenview, Ashland... around Sullivan High... I'd love to consider. Thanks!

Also, any tips on other places to look for parking spot besides here and Craigslist??

  • Leelee Dog lady, cat lady, juicer extraordinaire

    Ask at the 7-11at Pratt and the el tracks. There was a post on EB at some point that they will rent a space in their lot. Worth asking them...
